Some “U.S. allies” are wetting their pants over the prospect of fundamental change in foreign policy between the U.S. and the rest of the world. Change like providing for their own defense, if only by an incredibly small percentage. They, and the nine people it took to write this Yahoo piece, mis-interpret what Trump means by “America First.”
It doesn’t mean isolationism, although one can understand the Hitler effect from Europeans. What it means is that countries need to put on their big boy pants and (after 70 years) start assuming responsibility for their own welfare, including their own military. And, the the U.S. is not the teet for the rest of the world to suckle on.
It does not mean we abandon them in a defense sense if they are attacked. It means when some treaty or agreement is made, it will be for the mutual benefit of both parties, instead of just another burden on U.S. taxpayers to stuff a goodie-bag (or for Obama, a guilt bag) for a naive president with no sense of looking out for Americans and America.
President Obama may be a sucker, but Trump and the American people are not.
Early voting is underway for Florida’s primary election. NOTICE to all minorities. You have a week to get to the polls on March 15, or, you can make it to one of the early voting locations and vote whenever you want. Or, you can vote by mail and get a ballot mailed to you if you request one today.
Most important, call 911 immediately if any Republican operative prevents you from voting. That would be illegal. However, if you are not happy with the unemployment and falling family income that has beset you, you might consider voting for a conservative Republican president for a change.
I voted early. I’m not telling you who you should vote for, but I will tell you why I voted for Ted Cruz. It’s because I believe his stance on the founding principles (Constitution included) of the country (and I don’t mean the Democrat’s slavery platform) is what this country is sorely lacking in a president, and what can best turn this ship around. In case you haven’t noticed, Cruz does what he says, and does what people elected him to do. He listens to the
Got a kick out of hearing Bernie Sanders at the Town Hall last night, attacking Hillary Clinton on Obamacare. Bernie wants the endgame of what Obamacare was meant to be, Medicare for all.
What’s funny about it was Bernie saying that Obamacare doesn’t work because there are, according to him, 29 million Americans without health insurance. Four years ago, when Barack O was selling the ACA, his promise that the 30 million Americans, according to him, who did not have health insurance would then have it.
Just add this to the list of broken promises, aka snake oil, that President Obama had told you about. So what has changed in the last four years? The federal government has usurped 20 percent of the private sector economy, controls the health care and health insurance industry, and due to that, now controls you.
At tonight’s State of the Union show, when President Obama says “as Americans, that’s not who we are,” he’s lying to himself. We, as Americans, are not suicidal. Unlike him, Americans believe it is his job to protect us first.
He will be pushing the idea of taking Syrian refugees out of their country, continent, culture, and language, and bringing them here. Despite that our own DHS and FBI say that there is no sure way to vet them. And, ISIS has not only said they would infiltrate the refugee population, but some of them have already been caught here.
The best thing about tonight’s “show” is that it will be his last.
Fans from around the world will be able to watch the 2016 SugarHouse Casino Mummers Parade live on PHL17.com with streaming coverage beginning 9:00 AM.
This is a great opportunity for Mummers enthusiasts outside of the Philadelphia area to take part in this unique tradition. In addition to the live stream, PHL17 will be posting photos and videos regularly on New Year’s Day on PHL17.com.
The long knives are out for Donald J. Trump, now that his polling numbers continue to grow, or at the very least, show no signs of falling. A great example of this is this impish article about him by George Will. News Flash George. There is no conservative party. And never was. There was a conservative president, Ronaldus Magnus (as Rush Limbaugh affectionately calls Reagan), but not a Party. In fact, the Republican Party was attacking him like the current party elite (and George Will) are attacking Trump today.
I see it differently than Will. I see it as the beginning of the end of the Republican Party, the RNC, as we know it. I see it as the beginning of a huge housecleaning that needs to be done in the House, the Senate, and the RNC. And Trump, Ted Cruz, or Dr. Ben Carson are poised to do just that.
Will is in total denial if he believes what he is saying, that there even is a conservative party called Republican. The way I see it, if Trump wins, it could mean the beginning of the conservative party.
On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that “two Battalions of Marines be raised” for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Serving on land and at sea, these first Marines distinguished themselves in a number of important operations, including their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas in March 1776, under the command of Captain (later Major) Samuel Nicholas.
In a related matter, is the statement President Obama made at a Ramadan dinner at The White House where he praised Muslim’s attending of Islam’s contributions to “the American way of life.”
I know of only ONE thing that Muslim’s are responsible for that contributed to “the American way of life.” The founding of the Marines in November 1775 during the times of the Second Continental Congress. Before George Washington became our first President. Their contribution was their pirating merchant ships, stealing the cargo and killing the crews in the Mediterranean Sea. As the Marine anthem goes “From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli…” They were formed to protect shipping from pirates at first. Then grew into a force that can protect our country. That’s what I see as Muslim’s only contribution to America and our way of life. Your mileage may vary.
Happy Birthday Marines Corps. God Bless you and your families for your service and sacrifices.
The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved H.R.3504, The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
In short, it does two things. It protects life. And it grants the newborn all the rights and protections under the law that any other newborn has under the law.
The fact that nearly every democrat in the House voted against life, is evidence how much abortion is the Holy Sacrament of the Democrat Party. They voted in lock-step with President Obama and the First Lady who believe infanticide is just fine. A woman’s right.
Don’t you wonder what the Pope, who is in Washington, would have to say about this bill, and what the vote says about the moral standards of his host?
