Tale Of Two Presidents

The more President Trump accomplishes for the country, the more irrational his detractors, the media, and the Washington establishment become.

The garbage thrown at Trump started before his inauguration. From Russian collusion alleged in a phony document that was used as intelligence, used to spy on his campaign and his administration. To obstruction of justice over same. To now, he’s crazy and should be removed from office.

Lets see who’s crazy.

Iran: One president breaks laws to get billions of dollars flown illegally, pallets of cash into the hands of the people who run the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, Iran, and they export it. And this president does everything he can to get them hundreds of millions of dollars in cash. This same country to whom we gave this cash is committed to creating a nuclear arsenal delivered by ICBMs, all of which are known to be under development because this president enabled them to move forward on their research.

The other president is working to stop all of this. The other president is working to unwind this insane deal and do what he can to prevent this state sponsor of terrorism from getting nuclear weapons. Now, who’s the smart one and who’s the dumb one?

Health Care: One president went out there and literally seized one-sixth of the U.S. economy and lied to the American people in doing it. He promised the American people if we would just entrust our health care to him, somebody who doesn’t know anything about it beyond being a theoretician in the academic lounge. Somebody who’s never run a hospital, who’s never talked to anybody who’s run a hospital, who’s never had the slightest interest in running a hospital took over one-sixth of the U.S. economy along with the rest of his party, lied to the American people to do it, claiming that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and if you like your insurance plan, you can keep that.

The other president is doing everything he can to unwind that and deregulate as much of the Obama health care takeover as he can. Who’s the smart one, who’s the dumb one?

ISIS: A brutally inhumane, militaristic gang which one president said, “We’re doing everything we can. There’s not much we can do. Get used to it. They’re here.” Destabilizing the Middle East, destabilizing a victory in Iraq, leading to terror attacks around the world.

The other president has systematically wiped out this organization in under a year. Surrendering in Iraq. Who is the smart one and who’s the stupid one? Who’s the dangerous one and with whom are we in safer hands?

The Swamp: One president spies on his political opponents. One president knowingly takes opposition research from the presidential candidate of his party, knowingly allows it to be used as legitimate intelligence, when it’s lies and made-up BS, allows his Justice Department to get a FISA warrant to surveil and spy on the presidential candidate of the opposite party. The other president, in the midst of an entire effort by all of Washington to destroy him with this phony dossier, exposes this.

Who is it that’s unraveling? Was it the Obama team? Was it the Hillary team? Was it the Democrat Party? Is it the Washington establishment unraveling, or is it Donald Trump perhaps getting rid of the filth and the dirt and giving this country a working chance again?

The Economy: One president micromanages the economy into the ground and tells the American people that our better days are behind us. And, “you didn’t build that.” Government did. He says the great days of America’s past were not really legitimate. They were built on phony policies, trickle-down economics from the Reagan administration. The United States is not exceptional or deserving of superpower status. We now must manage the decline. And I, Barack Hussein Obama, am the smartest guy in the world to manage the decline of the United States and its economy.

His replacement liberates the economy, to the point in under a year it is growing at twice the rate it ever grew under Barack Obama. The reason is not just his taking the regulation shackles off of business and industries, introducing tax laws that allow us to compete in the world economy, but on curbing illegal immigration. And the beneficiaries of that where jobs are concerned are the poor, of all races. The less illegals taking American jobs means jobs available for our own citizens. Which is clear by the fact that unemployment for Blacks and Hispanics are at all time lows. And yet we’re told Obama is brilliant, he’s so smart, we can’t even stay in the same room with him. Donald Trump is silly. He’s insane. He’s obsessed. His unfit. We need psychiatrists examining him. We need the 25th Amendment.

Who’s the nutcase, who’s the dangerous one, and who is, in under a year, unraveling all of the mistakes borne of the either poor ideology or just blatant stupidity of the previous administration?  Or both?

U.S. Cuts U.N. Budget 23%

In response to President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, the U.N. voted to negate that decision.

The meaningless vote didn’t serve them well.  Trump followed through with his, and Amb. Nikki Haley’s, earlier statements about cutting funding from the corrupt and biased world body.

“We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of,” the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said, adding that the “inefficiency and overspending” of the organization was well-known.

This time by $285 million. That amounts to 23.75% of our operating cost contribution ($1.2 B), not counting the cost of peacekeeping operations.

It’s a good start.

On another note, look how ABC uses this picture in their story on the same subject.

Trump On The Trail

Was fortunate enough to see President Trump tonight in Pensacola, Florida. Was good to see that despite the freezing (for locals) weather, 12,000 of us filled the Pensacola Civic Center, or Bay Center as it is called today.

Just as on the campaign trail, President Trump was energetic and having fun, like everyone else there. This time, he not only spoke of what was in store for the coming months on important matters like tax cuts, health care, safe cities and neighborhoods, immigration and border security, draining the swamp and more, he started the night bringing us up to date with what he has accomplished in the first ten months of his administration. And it was a lot. Which begs the question, had it not been coming directly from him, do you think you would have learned about it from the news media?

Tonight’s event was billed as a campaign-style event, and that’s what it was. But it was so much more than that. Like most everything else Trump does, he is finally breaking the mold of Republicans governing by complacency.

As President George H.W. Bush found out, winning one election doesn’t mean you can win another by assuming everybody understands conservative principles.

It was President Clinton and later President Barack Obama who never stopped campaigning. Not one month of their collective sixteen years was a campaign ever over. President G. W. Bush followed his father and, never defended himself from constant attacks from his political opponents. You know, the ones whining about how divisive Republicans are.

Enter President Donald Trump. Along with everything else so non-establishment, Trump knows that to do what the American people elected him to do, he has to keep the people engaged and informed. Because he, you, and I know that the media certainly will not keep us  informed. More like deformed.

I doubt there is anyone who knows the media like Trump. What motivates him is saving America as it was founded to be, and meeting the folks, the forgotten ones, working people pursuing the American Dream. And no better way to do that than to keep the campaign current and constant.

Trump’s support comes from the American people. People who like him fighting back, taking the fight to them and the failed policies of the Left.  All while making the case for his policies and agenda that they and most Americans want and support.

So the next mind blower for the media, Democrats, the Swamp, and never-Trump Republicans is that Donald Trump is not leaving the campaign trail. Unlike Obama, the media did not make Trump. And hard as they try, the media can not break him or separate Trump’s supporters from him.

General Flynn Exonerated

Flynn’s contact with the Russian diplomat was covering normal transition communications between an incoming administration and other administrations around the world. According to the FBI, the purpose was to find common ground on fighting ISIS. And this was after the election. Not before.

Like Martha Stewart, Flynn was charged with a process crime. He was not charged with anything to do with the purpose of the investigation. He was charged with lying, for giving conflicting accounts between what the FBI had him saying on wiretaps with a Russian diplomat, after the election, and his answers to questions about those conversations. Flynn was not charged with violation of the espionage act, which would have been the case if there was any there there to the claim that the Trump campaign made deals with “the Russians” to win the 2016 election. But he wasn’t.

The crime here is the “unmasking” of Flynn by the Obama administration in the first place. But that’s not the way the media will cover Flynn’s admission Friday.

The way the kids on The View see Flynn’s admission is demonstrative of just how sever Trump Derangement Syndrome is.  To them, lying to the FBI about nothing related to the focus of the Trump/Russia collusion connection is, to Joy Behar, proof of a Trump/Russia collusion to beat Hillary Clinton at the 2016 election.

The election that was already over a month prior.

That the Left continues to criminalized political activity is a given. It’s part of their “resistance” designed to thwart everything the Trump administration wants to do.

For a glimpse of Trump Derangement Syndrome, just tune in to CNN or MSNBC for fifteen minutes. There you will find a panel discussion of how Trump is unhinged and out of control. They are as excited about how unfit and mentally deficient Trump is as Joy Behar is about Flynn’s admission. Then look at a press conference or news conference of Trump and see if you notice how unhinged and out-of-control he is. Between the two, it’s obvious that the insane ones are on the Left. Not in The White House.

New Hands Up, Don’t Shoot

It never occurred to me that a Commander-in-Chief would call the wife of a man who gave his last measure for his country, to insult her, her family, and all fallen soldiers. But according to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL24), that’s what happened.

Rep. Wilson has created her own version of “hands up don’t shoot.” Because like the hands up don’t shoot meme, Wilson’s account of the sympathy call President Trump made to Myeshia Johnson, wife of Sgt. La David T. Johnson, was not real either.

Turns out that Rep. Wilson is a family friend of Mrs. Johnson. Which is why she was with her and her two children when the president’s call came.

Rep. Wilson said on Wednesday . . .

“What he said was, ‘I guess he knew what he was signing up for but it still hurts.’ That’s how he said it.”

Creating a false narrative, then using it to attack a political party or person is not new for Democrats. It’s used all the time.

  • There’s this one used to attack Trump, who she always has despised and made no bones about it.
  • The “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” story, debunked. Did not happen.
  • The “Russian Dossier, ” totally fabricated, was used to start an investigation to explain why Hillary lost, by collusion between Russia and Trump. (Haven’t found any Russians yet, but they’re still looking. And won’t end it for lack of evidence.)

But what good is lying to attack the opposition if you can’t lie to help yourself?

  • Benghazi Attack 9/11/2012, was a result of an internet video. A lie.

As told not just to you, but to the Gold Star parents beside their son’s casket.  That lie was to save Barack Obama’s re-election bid, after campaigning by saying al-Qaeda is on the run. Had to be solidarity in the lie, so there was, by President Obama, Sec. of State Clinton, and Ambassador Rice, echoed by the media ad nauseum.

It remains to be seen in this case whether we are seeing another media/democrat meme that Trump doesn’t treat the military and widows with respect, or whether we’re just talking about the mental capacity of Rep. Frederica Wilson.

You know the experiment where you have 20 people who pass a message from one to the other, and how the message is different by the time it gets to the last person? In Wilson’s case, she can’t handle person #1.

In her quote above from the NYT, she quotes what, according to her, Trump said. Then followed by “That’s how he said it.”  So which is it? Is that how he said it, or is that, in fact, what he said?

Given her hatred for Trump, and not a friend of veterans, chances are very good that’s what she heard, even though that’s not what he said.

Here she is today, pleased with how she has become a “rock star” since the call. That she would use that occasion like a campaign stop is disgusting.

If not wacky.

Feeling Uncomfortable?

I don’t know about you, but seeing “news” reports about some person/group feeling uncomfortable and the expectation that government will “fix” it for you pisses me off.

Keeping well, as in not sick, is a priority of personal responsibility. Feeling “uncomfortable” is not an illness. It’s a state of mind. So if something makes you uncomfortable, deal with it on your own.

The Declaration of Independence lists three unalienable rights. They are the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. There is no guarantee of happiness. Nor is there a Constitutional protection to feel happy. It’s called personal responsibility. You are free to pursue it. How successful you are is totally up to you.

Despite what the media and Democrats in Washington will tell you,  it’s not the job or responsibility of government to make sure that nobody feels uncomfortable. It is this destructive practice of identity politics that they use to gain two things, power and control. If they can convince you that you are a victim, and they are the solution, they are counting on getting your vote. The Constitution be dammed.

The only result of a growing and all-powerful government is less of all three. Less life, less liberty, and less chance to pursue happiness.

Some people just need to get over it and grow up.

NFL At The Crossroad

Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin was not disappointed that one of his players took a knee, sat down, or stayed in the locker room during the National Anthem. Instead, he was annoyed that  Alejandro Villanueva, an Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan, stood proud during the National Anthem, leaving the team in the locker room.

https://youtu.be/4HR6fhif9CU

Apparently, Villanueva’s free speech doesn’t count. The coach wished that his team would have “shown respect” for the team, 100%, by staying in the locker room. Isn’t this about 180 degrees from sanity? He calls disrespecting the flag and National Anthem on or off the field, showing respect to the team?

It’s America that is owed some respect, just so people like you can be an a-hole. Meanwhile, Tomlin defied the NFL’s rule that says the team is supposed to be on the field during the National Anthem. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Commissioner Goodall to say a peep about it.

A lot of Americans feel differently. They would rather respect a team that plays a good game and, doesn’t disrespect them or the country. If coach Tomlin wants a political team, or a BLM team, and the NFL is OK with that, then by all means, reap what you sow.

There is an outside chance that the coach kept his team off the field to not allow his players to take a knee and embarrass the team. Major FAIL either way.

There’s a very good chance that unless Goodall gets the league under control as a sports organization, then we’ve seen the better days of the NFL.

History, Statues Fall

About ten days ago, in the wake of the Charlottesville clash between some racists and communists, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward decided to jump on the statue removal train. He is for removing the Confederate statue in Lee Square of Confederate soldier Ellsworh Perry, from downtown, where it has been for 126 years when it was dedicated in 1891.

There is an absence of civil discourse on this subject because of the way it is practiced by the political Left, Progressives, Democrats and Antifa, the communist anarchist club. No pun intended, but they do use clubs. To them, if you are against removing a statue from the Confederate/Civil War era, then you are a racist, pure and simple. And, nothing you could say can, or will, cause them to change their mind on the subject, or about you.

This is as close to a reasoned opinion as you’re going to find. From The Pulse.

We can choose to hold fast to the wrong side of history, to cling to relics that glorify a shameful and immoral period in our past, or we can reject them and acknowledge that Confederate symbols are divisive, outdated, and un-American, and have no place in our public spaces in 2017.

Historical perspective? Both sides of the Civil War were composed of Americans. Soldiers and volunteers from both sides of the war, all Americans, were not pondering which side of history they would be on, let alone wondering what people in 2017 might think of them. 500,000 Americans (and their families) who died in the war,  were making history.

And much to the chagrin of Democrats, the United States of America became the first country to specifically ban slavery.  Not only that, but the first country where the people limited the government. Unlike where they (or anyone else at the time) came from, where the government controlled the people. American Exceptionalism, another concept Democrats like President Obama will deny, comes from these formative years of American history. Our heritage. Democrats have been on the wrong side of civil rights ever since, living on the wrong side of history.

Anyone may ignore American history. Anyone may be offended by American history. And anyone is free to offer an opinion about it. History, for any one who cares, is to learn from and understand what happened at that time, compared to where we are today. In short, giving perspective of where we were, and where we are.

In their time, slavery wasn’t the invention of the Confederate States. Slavery existed on every continent. Slavery still exists today. It even existed in the native American tribes. It is unfair and wrong to judge people from another time by today’s understanding and belief.  Removing statues does nothing to change history, nor should anyone try. That’s what the Taliban does.

So if you happen to be driving down South Palafox in Pensacola and you pass a park with a monument in the middle of it, you believe what you want to if or when you see it. Everyone else will do the same. Just don’t make matters worse by going Taliban.

PCC Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Pensacola Christian College wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award for expelling Allen Armentrout, a student who peacefully exercised his 1st Amendment right in Charlottesville, VA last week.

His statement to the Pensacola News Journal was ignored by his school, who apparently succumbed to the media meme that you must deny your ancestors and history, else you’re a violent Nazi White Supremacist.

The college administration failed to show a violation of their rules that would apply to someone exercising their 1st Amendment right. Makes one wonder if any of the anarchists who actually were violent were expelled from school?

“I have been released from my school and will be unable to return to college to finish my senior year. I’m processing this and making adjustments to my life to compensate for this scrutiny.”

He does not deny the history of this country or his family.

Armentrout later told the News Journal he made the trip to Virginia because the KKK, Neo-Nazis and other groups are destroying the history of his ancestors and he wants to share “the true history” of the American South. He said Neo-Nazis have wrongly “latched on” to Confederate history.

One thing is certain, he is consistent in his convictions. Here he is in Pensacola last March.

What’s different this time? The national “news media” made him famous, and he exercised his 2nd Amendment right too! Oh the nerve.

For this reason, Pensacola Christian College wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Can you say “lawsuit?”

The Anarchists Are Coming

You’ve seen them in Berkely, in Charlottesville, and in Durham. I’m speaking of groups like Antifa, formerly of the “Occupy” generation, only more violent. Funded in part by George Soros funded groups. Rent-a-mob for all practical purposes.

Rewind to 2008, when the country was so full of hope and change. Americans elected the first Black president. Americans thought, wrongly so, that this would be the end of racial strife and we could all relax. Eight years later, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost to an outsider. Not just an outsider, a Republican outsider.

Blaming everyone but herself for her loss, Hillary was a most ungracious loser by launching what she called “The Resistance.” And, soon to be joined by President Obama.

Since then, Democrats have played the race card on a daily basis, and, every other sub-set of society they can delineate card. And what better way to exploit Race than to attack Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general who opposed both slavery & secession–to symbolize the evils of slavery & secession.

The result, civil unrest. Democrats thrive on it. They incite it, and if all hell breaks loose, it is somehow justified.

Tom Perez, the new head of the Democratic National Committee, did his part to incite unrest by this email he sent out Tuesday night. After President Trump’s third condemnation of the violence, Perez blasts an email (below) from the DNC.

Don’t hold your breath until someone from the Fake News Media puts a mic in Sen. Schumer’s (or Obama, Clinton) face and asked to comment on Chairman Perez’s lie about Trump and calling for democrats to “Rise and organize.” And, in light of the civil unrest going on in the country, does he think it is responsible to encourage violence?

In light of what’s going on in Pensacola today about removing a Civil War Era monument, don’t be surprised if the Clinton/Obama/Perez/Soros inspired anarchists arrive in Pensacola some day.
