The Political Funerals of Aretha and McCain…Why It’s a Shame

September 2, 2018

read-meghan-mccains-full-speech-at-john-mccains-memorial-service-1038x545

Americans tuned in to watch two memorial services and two political rallies broke out.

FoxNews.com reports that

Meghan McCain and President Barack Obama took apparent swipes at President Trump on Saturday in a eulogy for John McCain — who sparred with Trump on a number of occasions before his death last week of brain cancer. 
 
“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,’ McCain’s daughter said, in what appeared to be a reference to Trump’s presidential campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again.”

The remarks were made during a funeral service at Washington National Cathedral for the Arizona Republican, who died last week of brain cancer.

Obama’s jabs were more subtle but still appeared to be directed at the current occupant of the White House. He derided those in politics who traffic in “bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage.”

He also attacked “a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born of fear.”

“John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that,” he said.

It was Meghan McCain who had the most searing swipes at the president however. Notably she said that her father’s passing represented the passing of “American greatness. The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”

This was a continuation of a theme which began the day before at a different venue

At a funeral service in Detroit on Friday for Aretha Franklin – who died of pancreatic cancer Aug. 16 at age 76, several speakers used the occasion not only to hail the Queen of Soul but to dump on President Trump.

“You lugubrious leech, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist,” Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “She ain’t work for you.”

Dyson was referring to a comment Trump made during a recent Cabinet meeting, recalling Franklin’s performances at a Trump casino in New Jersey soon after it opened.

The Rev. Al Sharpton also seized an opportunity to criticize the president.

“You know, the other Sunday on my show, I misspelled ‘Respect,’ and a lot of y’all corrected me,” Sharpton said, according to the Washington Examiner. “Now, I want y’all to help me correct President Trump to teach him what it means.

“And I say that because when word went out that Ms. Franklin passed, Trump said, ‘She used to work for me,’” Sharpton continued. “No, she used to perform for you. She worked for us. Aretha never took orders from nobody but God.” 

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who ran for president as a Democrat in 1984 and 1988, issued a call for voter registration.

“Aretha was on the battleground for 60 years,” Jackson told the audience. “We have long lines to celebrate death, and short lines for voting. Something is missing. If you leave here today and don’t register to vote, you’re dishonoring Aretha.”

This is not the first time that a memorial service has been turned into a political rally.

Back in October of 2002, Minnesota Democrats used the memorial service for Democrat Senator Paul Wellstone as a political rally and an opportunity to push Walter “Fritz” Mondale as his successor.

Of course, back then, the entire nation was appalled by the Democrats boorish behavior and lack of decorum.

My…my…look at how far we’ve come…in the wrong direction.

The “smartest people in the room” are not even blinking an eye to the fact that the funeral services of two disparate people, who both, right or wrong, had an effect on our nation, were used as political platforms to continue to divide this nation.

Every American is entitled to their own political opinions. However, the old saying that there is a time and a place for everything still holds true.

Those overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome,who attacked the President at these two memorial services showed about as much grace and decorum as the sketch from “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour” where Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Ron White, and Larry The Cable Guy were talking about a relative who opened up a can of beer in the middle of a funeral and how it was not a good idea to show up drunk to a funeral. At one point, the guys were looking down into a make-believe coffin, talking about the deceased, when one of them remarked, “Wait. That ain’t Mama!”

But, I digress…

What the last couple of days showed to us average Americans who live between the coasts, is that our perception of the Washington Establishment and the Far left Democrats sharing the common bond of Trump Derangement Syndrome has proven to be right on the money.

For those individuals to show their hatred for the President of the United States of America at such solemn occasions as these two memorial services was unseemly…but sadly predictable.

They still don’t get it.

Or, as we say in the South,

“Well, bless their hearts.”

Trump Approval Rating Holds Steady, Despite “Legal Investigations” and Fake News Stories

August 27, 2018

deranged-600-la

The Washington Post “reports” that

Whether the president faces legal peril is not clear, but his presidency is at a precarious point. Recent polls suggest his repeated attacks on Mueller for leading a “witch hunt” have lost their effectiveness. And if the Democrats win a majority in at least one house of Congress in the midterm elections, now less than 10 weeks away, they would gain the power to investigate or even impeach.

“The whole reason he is freaking out is he can’t get rid of any of this,” said a longtime adviser to Trump, who, like others interviewed for this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House dynamics.

The president’s sense of betrayal came through last week when he derided cooperating witnesses as “flippers.” “Everything’s wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they – they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go,” he told Fox News. In contrast, he tweeted that his “brave” former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who was convicted last week of bank fraud and tax fraud, had “refused to ‘break.’ “

Trump has also focused his ire on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he has repeatedly and publicly attacked for his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. White House aides have explained to him that firing Sessions would not end the probe, but he remains livid, officials said, particularly after Sessions responded last week with a statement declaring that “the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.”

The Trump Organization declined to comment for this story. The White House referred questions to Trump’s outside lawyers, who also declined to comment for this story.

And, with good reason.

This Fake News Story is nothing but wish-casting on the part of its writers.

Laura Ingraham’s Lifezette.com reports that

President Donald Trump’s approval rating remains almost unchanged following a week brimming with bad news for his former personal lawyer and former presidential campaign chairman, according to back-to-back NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveys released Sunday.

“We’ve had this enormous series of events, and these numbers don’t change very much,” said GOP pollster Bill McInturff, according to the WSJ.

McInturff and Democratic pollster Peter Hart worked on the two surveys in the days before and after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen struck a plea deal and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted on eight of 18 counts.

“For the 2018 Democratic strategy, the Manafort and Cohen convictions represent a fool’s gold opportunity rather than a silver bullet solution,” Hart said, pointing to the upcoming midterm elections in November, according to the WSJ.

The first poll found that 46 percent of American voters approved of Trump’s presidential performance while 51 percent disapproved. The follow-up poll found that 44 percent of American voters approved while 52 percent disapproved.

News of Manafort’s convictions and Cohen’s plea deal broke August 21. The first poll of 900 U.S. voters was conducted from August 18-22 and the second survey of 600 voters took place between August 22-25.

Although mainstream media members and the president’s regular critics immediately pounced on the Cohen-Manafort news as proof that Trump was heading closer to impeachment proceedings and permeated the news cycle with their speculation, Trump’s popularity remained virtually unchanged.

As the late Jim Nabors would say as Gomer Pyle,

“Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!”

As I wrote on Saturday, average Americans can recognize a political railroading job when they see one.

The Democratic Party continues to overplay their hand, grossly overestimating their own intelligence while underestimating the intelligence of us Americans who live between the coasts in the Heartland of America.

You would have thought that they would have learned not to do that after their plans for a “Democratic Socialist Paradise” were obliterated on the night of November 8, 2016, when we “forgotten Americans” MADE them remember who we were.

But, no.

Modern American Liberals, especially the Far Left Democratic Party, view themselves as “The Smartest People in the Room”

You can’t tell them a thing. They already know it all.

They thought beyond a shadow of a doubt that if they came up with a cockamamie story about Trump colluding with the Russians to sabotage the 2016 Presidential Election in order to defeat their “chosen one”, Hillary Clinton, that the American People would buy it hook, line, and sinker. All they thought they had to do was get a Special Counsel appointed who had political ties to both Clinton and Obama and who would, in turn, appoint Democratic Donors as his “investigators”.

Then that Special Counsel would be given free rein to broaden the scope of his “investigation”, charging everyone who ever even knew Trump with questionable crimes in order to flip them so that they could get to their real target, President Donald J. Trump.

And so far, their plan has been sort of successful…except for one little problem: The Americans who elected Donald J. Trump are still supporting the President, making the Democrats look like fools and their “not-so-silent” coup attempt appear feckless and nothing but Political Shenanigans or as Trump himself describes it, “A WITCH HUNT”.

So, what’s next?

Next, the Special Counsel and his “17 Angry Democrats” will enlist their brethren in the Southern District of New York to go after Trump’s Organization and his family.

Because, as the Democratic Party proved at least of couple of times during the Obama Administration, if they can’t beat our candidates or our traditional Americans Faith and Vlaues,  they will use Liberals working in our Legal System to tear them down.

A strong, prosperous America and the safety and prosperity of average Americans do not matter to the self-righteous Power Brokers of the Far Left Democratic Party.

Regaining their power in Washington, D.C. does.

Until He Comes,

Frustrated Joe Scarborough Asks About Trump Supporters, “Who The Hell Are These People”? Let Me Tell You, Joe…

July 21, 2018

thoughts-and-prayers-600-la (2)

CNSNews.com reports that

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of President Donald Trump’s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says.

The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,”Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?” Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved.

“Who the hell are these people?” an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” asked on Friday’s show. He and his ilk are stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump’s recent meeting in Helsinki was “called treasonous” by the elites.

“Who are these people and what have they done to my party?” asked Scarborough, who has left the Republican Party and is about to marry his very liberal “Morning Joe” co-host.

“It was just really shocking that the president of the United States — after being called treasonous by quite a few people in the foreign policy/defense community– still trying to clean up…the mess that he created when he went to Helsinki and kowtowed to an ex-KGB agent, that he rushes to announce that now Vladimir Putin is coming to Washington, before cleaning up the last mess on aisle 7.”

Scarborough gave his own spin to the poll showing that 80 percent of Americans “think it’s okay to cower before an ex-KGB agent, to insult allies. You do wonder, is it just a Donald Trump problem now? This is a problem with the party cast wide.”

Scarborough warned that support for Trump will ultimately “destroy” the Republican Party.

Joining the chorus, contributor John Heilemann said: “I think the corruption and bankruptcy of the Republican Party has been a long time in the making, but there is no Republican Party any more in any sense that you would have defined the Republican Party ten years ago, and the way that you would have, what the Republican Party stood for, at least in the post-World War II era.

“It has become the party of Donald Trump,” Heilemann said. “And so in a thorough way, we’ve seen this, not just in the polling — the startling polling in relation to how Republicans now have seen the performance of Donald Trump in Helsinki, presumably how they will see his invitation now of Vladimir Putin to come to Washington to give him the ultimate kind of — ah, rather than to chastise him, rather than to criticize him for Russia’s role in meddling in an American election, he’s giving him the ultimate kind of cherry-on-top of a sundae. This is a thing that a Russian president would want most of all to get.””

“But, John,” Scarborough said, “it goes to Republicans, though. Rank-and-file Republicans — 75 percent, 80 percent saying they liked what he did in Helsinki when even, again, his closest allies in the media said he was either treasonous or a complete dupe.

“Who are these people that I grew up with that were the most — the toughest on Russia, that fought the cold war alongside with NATO? When the Soviets’ goal during the Cold War is the same goal that Vladimir Putin has now, which is to disrupt Western democracies and break up NATO? The goal is identical to what Republicans always supported. And you talk about trade. 73 percent of Republicans now are telling pollsters that they think tariffs are good for America?

“This — again, who are these people? It’s like — like political body snatchers,” Scarborough lamented.

Heilemann again: “Joe, these are the people who now call themselves — now are the Republican Party. The people who you think of as having constituted the Republican Party in your life growing up in the party — they are now either no longer in the party, or they are, in a kind of weak and craven way, sitting on the sidelines and wringing their hands over what Donald Trump has done to the party, but not really doing much about it. Some of them are speaking out, some of them are not…

“But the rank and file of the party now, the — the grass-roots of the Republican party are people who believe what Donald Trump believes, and not what you believe, and not what Republicans believed in the post-world war II era; they don’t believe in free trade, they don’t believe in immigration, they don’t believe in standing up to Russian, previously Soviet, expansionism, they don’t believe in NATO — they don’t believe those things. That’s not what the Republican Party is anymore. So to answer your question, I don’t know what happens.”

Scarborough said for the past two decades, he could go to any Lincoln-Reagan dinner across America, “and you could say the same thing wherever you went, and you’d get the applause. Now — according to these polls it’s not a split. Now 80 percent of Americans are fine with Donald Trump’s kowtowing to an ex-KGB agent who wants to destroy our allies, and wants to disrupt our elections. And they — now, you look at this poll, they support tariffs.

“What the hell — what the hell — who the hell are these people?! What is wrong with these Republicans?! Where has the party, not of my youth, but of my early 50s gone?!” Scarborough asked.

“It’s gone, Joe,” guest Susan del Percio said.

And the funeral went on from there.

I guess that Joe Scarborough thought that the entire nation would be so gullible as to buy the spin that the Main Stream Media pumped out 24/7 for several days in a row about President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin and the Press Conference after it.

Evidently, Joe and the rest of the Democratic Party lackeys whom we refer to as the Main Stream Media learned nothing from the Presidential Campaign and Election of 2016.

If you will recall, the MSM spent hours upon hours, days upon days attempting to drag Hillary Clinton’s Far Left cantankerous old as…err…self across the finish line.

In fact, they were so certain that Hillary’s victory the evening of November 8, 2016 was a fait accompli, that the look on the faces of the anchors and pundits on Joe’s own network, MSNBC, and the other Liberal News Channels was one of utter shock and disbelief when the returns started pouring in and states that were supposedly in Hillary’s back pocket went to Trump.

My bride and I stayed up and laughed out loud.

But, I digress…

All of these Cable News “Political Pundits”, including Joe Scarborough, still have no clue as to why they lost.

Nor do they understand whom it was that elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America and continue to stand by him today with no hesitation.

Hey, Joe…let me explain a little concept I like to call “reality”…

Between the states that butt up against the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, there is a massive area of land where average Americans live in major cities, suburbs, and small towns, known as the “Heartland of America”.

We average Americans live our lives quite differently than you guys in the areas of the Northeast known as the Beltway and the Big Apple and the area on the other side of the nation known as the Left Coast.

We were brought up to believe in a system of Traditional American Faith and Values and in morality and ethics.

We were taught to stand up and place our hands over our hearts during our National Anthem.

We were taught to respect others by using phrases which are probably foreign to you such as “yes, sir” and “no, ma’am” and “please” and “thank you”.

We were also raised to be proud of America and what she stands for and to honor those who protect us at home and abroad while sacrificing their lives in her defense.

We are a Constitutional Republic created by Founders who pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” in order to fight a war which freed us from tyranny and which created a country that would not be governed by mob rule.

Thank God.

So, Joe…”who the Hell” are we?

We are the people whom you and your co-members of the Democratic Party forgot about in your zeal to bow to special interest groups and to take this nation on a path which it was never meant to go on….one of “Democratic Socialism”, i.e. “Marxism”.

We are average Americans and WE, not the Russians, elected Donald J Trump the President of the United States of America.

And, we will continue to stand by him as long as he continues to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

He’s doing fine so far.

…And, you guys can’t stand it.

Until He Comes,

Independence Day 2018: America’s Strength Lies in Her “Average Joes”

July 4, 2018

lib-fireworks-dt-600

On July 4th, 1986, the greatest president in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, delivered these words to a television audience. They are as inspirational today as the day that they were given.

My remarks tonight will be brief, but it’s worth remembering that all the celebration of this day is rooted in history. It’s recorded that shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia celebrations took place throughout the land, and many of the former Colonists — they were just starting to call themselves Americans — set off cannons and marched in fife and drum parades.

What a contrast with the sober scene that had taken place a short time earlier in Independence Hall. Fifty-six men came forward to sign the parchment. It was noted at the time that they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honors. And that was more than rhetoric; each of those men knew the penalty for high treason to the Crown. “We must all hang together,” Benjamin Franklin said, “or, assuredly, we will all hang separately.” And John Hancock, it is said, wrote his signature in large script so King George could see it without his spectacles. They were brave. They stayed brave through all the bloodshed of the coming years. Their courage created a nation built on a universal claim to human dignity, on the proposition that every man, woman, and child had a right to a future of freedom.

For just a moment, let us listen to the words again: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Last night when we rededicated Miss Liberty and relit her torch, we reflected on all the millions who came here in search of the dream of freedom inaugurated in Independence Hall. We reflected, too, on their courage in coming great distances and settling in a foreign land and then passing on to their children and their children’s children the hope symbolized in this statue here just behind us: the hope that is America. It is a hope that someday every people and every nation of the world will know the blessings of liberty.

If you listen to the Mantra of Modern American Liberals, you would think that America’s best days are behind her and that we are the worst Nation on the face of the Earth. Personally, I do not believe their assessment of gloom and doom. Rather, I stand with this man who embodied the American Spirit that is beginning to awaken across this blessed land.

Per military.com:

Gen. Anthony Clement McAuliffe is best remembered for uttering a single word — no mean feat, considering that even the shortest Bible verse has two. Commanding the U.S. Army’s beleaguered and surrounded 101st Airborne Division during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge, McAuliffe received a German surrender ultimatum. “Nuts!” he replied, and became a lasting symbol of American courage and determination under fire.

A 1918 West Point graduate, McAuliffe held various field artillery positions before World War II. On the eve of D-Day, McAuliffe jumped with the first wave as a commander of division artillery, although he had never received formal parachute training.

In December 1944, during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium, McAuliffe was acting commander of the 101st in Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor’s absence. The Americans had been holding the Belgian town “at all costs,” and on Dec. 22, Gen. McAuliffe received the encouraging news that the 4th Armored Division was beginning its drive north to relieve the 101st. Later that morning, members of the division’s glider regiment saw four Germans coming up the road carrying a white flag. Everyone hoped they were offering surrender. Instead, they presented two pages demanding the Americans’ surrender: “To the USA Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne. . .There is only one possibility. . .the honorable surrender of the encircled town.”

McAuliffe glanced at the message and said, “Aw, nuts!” When he told his commanders he didn’t know what answer to send, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard said ‘That first crack you made would be hard to beat, General.” Everyone laughed as a sergeant typed up the succinct response: “To the German Commander: Nuts! The American Commander.”

Between this stoic reply, Patton’s troops from the south, and a change in the weather that allowed air reinforcement the following day, the 101st was able to hold Bastogne. Their victory resulted in the first full-Division Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation.

McAuliffe’s actions at Bastogne helped assure the final defeat of the Germans. Gen. McAuliffe continued to serve on active duty, including assignments as Head of the Army Chemical Corps, Commander, 7th Army, and Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Army, Europe, until his 1956 retirement. He died in Washington, D.C. in 1975 and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, and the rest of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

According to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

For the past 2 decades at least, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America is “just another country” and to be a patriot is to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” whom, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And that, boys and girls, is why, on this 4th of July, almost 2 years after average Americans watched with a sense of prideful accomplishment as Donald J. Trump took the Oath of Office, Modern American Liberals are still showing the world their posteriors while continuing to throw the longest mass temper tantrum in recorded history.

Their ego-driven political ideology did not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily-populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

So, to summarize, by labeling Patriotism as “Jingoism” and by ridiculing those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values, the Democratic Party cost themselves the Presidency…going from the “In Crowd” to the Outhouse.

If I was a Modern American Liberal with any sort of self-awareness, I would be throwing a temper tantrum, too…over my own ungrateful arrogant ignorance that caused the defeat of my Presidential Candidate.

Unfortunately, the Far Left special interests groups who have taken over the once mainstream Democratic Party are not self-aware.

And, it is this lack of self-awareness that is allowing average Americans to witness the implosion and political extinction of the Democratic Party right before our very eyes.

In the opinion of this 59-year-old, sitting in the Northwest corner of the Magnolia State in America’s Heartland, Modern American Liberals, and their ideological leaders, who trod the Halls of Power with impunity, underestimated the American Spirit, just as King George and the British Aristocracy did, so many years ago.

As our enemies, both foreign and domestic, have discovered since the birth of our nation, Americans will fight for our freedom.

We showed this fact to the world on November 8th, 2016.

And now, almost 2 years later thanks to the unflinching leadership of an American President, and despite the actions of those who despise our American Way of Life, our Sovereign Nation is rising like a phoenix from its ashes and we are making American great again!

May God Bless you and your family on this 4th of July, the Year of Our Lord, 2018, and may God Bless America.

Poll Shows Highest Number of Americans Satisfied With Country’s Direction Since 2005

June 20, 2018

mad-man-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

More Americans are satisfied with the direction of the country than at any point in the past 12 years, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll, which was released Monday, shows that 38 percent of respondents are “satisfied with the way things are going,” the highest number since 2005.

“The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year — a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016),” the report says.

Gallup noted that the rise in satisfaction over the past two months comes amid a spate of positive economic news, including the shrinking of the unemployment rate and the continuation of an economic expansion.

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said Democrats are “running scared” from the strong economic numbers, because they can see that support for President Trump is growing.

She noted that some recent polls show Trump’s approval rating growing among millennials, which she attributed to young people who have been shut out of the job market believing in Trump and Republicans’ economic message.

“Democrats need to be scared, because those numbers are guaranteeing him a second term,” McEnany said.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion” and “Concentration Camps” and “separated families” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

If there was any doubt in your minds before, gentle readers, the past several days clearly show that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

So far, Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors poorly masquerading as impartial investigators, are failing miserably.

They have handed down 2 indictments for “offenses” which were not even a part of Trump’s Presidential Campaign or the first year of his presidency.

With Mueller’s Investigation blowing up around them, now the Democrats are trying to sabotage Trump with charges that he is purposefully separating children from their parents at the border, oblivious to the fact that it has been a practice since Democrats held the White House.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President is succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

And, average Americans are loving it.

The fact is, the Democrats on Capitol Hill remain out-of-touch with average Americans.

They have learned nothing at all from their year and one half out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” has been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…

  1. Americans are “jingoistic”.
  2. America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
  3. The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
  4. Perversion is perfectly normal.
  5. They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.

There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.

Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.

Unless they can find their way back to reality, their political party is destined to go the way of the Whigs.

Considering their fondness for relative morality, situational ethics, and purposeful obtuseness, perhaps they should keep traveling the path that they are presently on…attempting to find something…ANYTHING to impeach President Trump on.

Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….

and America.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

Hillary’s Popularity Continues to Drop…How Deplorable!

April 19, 2018

 

hillary-blames-everybody-for-losing

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.” – Hillary Clinton, Democratic Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America, 9/10/2016

FoxNews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton, well over a year after she lost the 2016 election to President Trump, is less popular than ever, according to a poll released this week.

Only 27 percent of those polled had a very or somewhat positive view of the former secretary of state, according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. That makes her less popular than President Trump, whose popularity registered at 35 percent. It is a new low for her in the poll, which clocked her popularity at 30 percent in August 2017.

A Journal analysis of the poll notes that the poll is a reminder of “just how unusual” Clinton is in terms of her unpopularity — even among recent losing presidential nominees who have typically experienced a post-election decline, but not to the extent Clinton has. At the time of the election, 40 percent had a positive view of her. 

While Clinton and Trump now both have similar levels of unpopularity (52 and 53 percent, respectively), her lower positive rating means Clinton’s favorability gap is wider. Trump, meanwhile, has faced a rocky first year as president overshadowed by constant controversies including a wide-ranging investigation by FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Clinton has stayed on the political stage. She has set up the political action organization Onward Together and released a lengthy campaign post-mortem titled, “What Happened.” She went on a speaking tour coinciding with the book’s release and has made numerous additional appearances discussing her 2016 loss. 

Yet the scandals that dogged her throughout the campaign have not gone away. The question of her email use when she served as secretary of state is still in the spotlight as the FBI’s handling of the probe itself is under scrutiny. And Trump has continued to launch the occasional attack on his former election rival. 

This week, Trump used former FBI Director James Comey’s book launch to again call Clinton “crooked.”

As posted on SpartaReport.com yesterday by my friend and fellow contributor, Radius, Hillary Clinton, along with James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Loretta Lynch are the subjects of a criminal referral sent to the Department of Justice by Congressman Ron DeSantis of Florida, along with 10 other GOP Representatives.

While nothing may come of it, just the fact that they are sending the referral is a very good sign.

Meanwhile, here’s a question for you, gentle readers…

If the Democratic Party’s all-out offensive against the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump was being as successful as they had planned it to be, wouldn’t Hillary’s popularity be climbing, as average Americans realized what a “mistake” they made in electing Donald J. Trump as President?

So, why is Hillary Clinton’s popularity sinking faster than the Titanic?

The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue to have effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

Yet still, they expect us to believe the Fake News which the Main Stream Media is still desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that all of them, in their shared madness can get a do-over and Hillary Clinton will somehow miraculously become the President.

Here’s the thing…

Americans do not care what the Main Stream Media, the Democratic Party Elite, or the Liberal Trolls spamming Social Media think.

The MSM is the Propaganda Arm and the Social Media Trolls are their unpaid (usually) stable boys and girls.

They produce it and Liberal Trolls shovel it.

Despite the cheerleading on her behalf by the Main Stream Media, Average Americans saw through Hillary Clinton a long time ago.

And, more and more Americans on both sides of the Political Aisle are fed up with her incessant whining and her blaming her loss in the 2016 Presidential Election on everybody but herself.

President Donald J. Trump is not perfect. None of us are.

However, he has gotten a lot of good things done since moving in to the Oval Office.

And, as a result, his popularity continues to hover around 50% in the Rasmussen Reports Daily Tracking Poll.

To answer the question as to why Clinton’s popularity poll numbers keep falling…to put it bluntly…having an American President who loves his country and her people beats the snot out of having a President who believes that we’re all a bunch of “Deplorables”.

Until He Comes,

Why the “Roseanne” Revival is a Hit

March 29, 2018

untitled (232)

“I think we need to converse more, but more than anything we need to get involved and run our government for ourselves instead of sitting back and wanting somebody else to do it. Even voting isn’t enough. You have to be involved. I talk about this with my grandkids – you have to get in there and get your hands dirty if you want things to go the way you want them to go. We’re lucky in this country that we can do that. We can really get our hands dirty and put our big collective shoulders to the wheel and change and fix things. I think that’s what’s exciting about our country right now.” – Roseanne Barr

Deadline.com reported yesterday that

Roseanne made a triumphant return last night, blowing past projections with a 5.2 adults 18-49 rating and 18.2 million total  viewers for the debut of its revival, which drew 10% more viewers than the original series finale 21 years ago.

While nostalgia was expected to bring in eyeballs, no one predicted such a huge turnout on premiere night for the blue-collar family sitcom with a Donald Trump-supporting protagonist, especially among the younger demographic. But then, few also predicted that Trump would become the Republican nominee and would win the Presidential election when he first announced his candidacy.

Both Trump and Roseanne were able to tap into the often overlooked and underserved working-class audience. Not surprisingly, the top TV markets where Roseanne delivered its highest ratings were in states handily carried by Trump during the 2016 Presidential election. No.1 was Tulsa in Oklahoma, which Trump won with 65.3% of the vote. It was followed by Cincinnati, Ohio and Kansas City, Missouri. The only big city from a blue state in the Top 10 was Chicago at No. 5 — that is the area where the series is set. ABC focused some of its marketing efforts in the region with a preview of the revival at the 54th Chicago International Film Festival.

The top market of the country, New York, was not in the Top 20; No.2 Los Angeles was not in the Top 30. And yet, Roseanne delivered the highest demo rating for a comedy telecast in 3.5 years, since the fall 2014 season premiere of The Big Bang Theory.

There no doubt was an element of nostalgia and curiosity about how the characters have changed and about the new generation of the Conners. But Roseanne went beyond that. Its youngest 18-49 viewers when the series originally aired on ABC from 1988-1997 are now at the very top or outside of the ad-friendly demographic, in which last night’s premiere posted a staggering 5.2 Live+same day rating with no lead-in. It came largely from new viewers who were children or not even born during Roseanne‘s initial run.

Imagine that.

A series returning to television after a 20 year hiatus about a working class family living in a town in the Heartland of America, whose outspoken matriarch is an adamant Trump Supporter, kicked major behind in the ratings.

Who’d da thunk it?

Certainly not the Liberal Expert Television Programmers and Critics in Hollywood and New York.

You know them. They are the same geniuses who came up with the idea for the Rosie O’Donnell variety show, “Rosie Live”…that mercifully lasted for only one episode.

The same Liberals who are in shock over the ratings success of the return of “Roseanne” are the same ones who have been crying since November 8, 2016 because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run the Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming nor the ratings success of the returning “Roseanne”.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th, 2016, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

Average Americans living in America’s Heartland are the reason that Donald J. Trump is our 45th President.

Roseanne Barr and the Producer of her program are both Trump Supporters.

They took a gamble and gave Americans what has been missing from Prime Time Television: a program that reflects the reality of what is actually happening in the homes of average Americans as they deal with the problems of their daily lives and the economic mess that Obama left our country in.

This hard slap to the face of the Hollywood Hoi Polloi has them reeling.

What I am wondering, though, is how long they will allow such a “heretical” show to stay on the air.

It takes the absurd notion that they have been peddling for years that Americans all share their Far Left Political Philosophy and knocks it on its hindquarters.

So, congratulations to the cast and crew of “Roseanne”.

And, watch your ”six”.

ABC doesn’t like it when you tell the truth…even when your show is popular.

Just ask Tim Allen.

Until He Comes,

The 2018 Academy Awards: Disconnected Liberals Honor Themselves

March 5, 2018

untitled (228)

The Academy Awards were the brainchild of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), formed in 1927. The AMPAS was created through collaborative effort of 36 most prominent individuals, who worked within the motion picture industry.

Film actor Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. was chosen as the first president of the Academy. The awards were established to honor the talented artists of the Motion Picture Industry. The first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It was a very private affair, with only two hundred seventy people as guests. The awards were given in the banquet, set up at the hotel’s Blossom Room. The tickets for the guest tickets cost $5.

The first Oscar Ceremony consisted of the handing out of awards in 12 categories and two special honors.

The awards were meant to honor people responsible for cinematic achievements in 1927 and 1928. There was a very little element of surprise at the first Oscar Awards ceremony, as the names of the winners had been declared three months in advance. The entire affair was a lengthy one, filled with speeches. However, Douglas Fairbanks, the Academy President, moved things along as best he could, handing out the golden statues to the winners like a modern-day McDonalds Employee at the Drive-Thru Window.

Yes, boys and girls, once upon a time the Academy Awards celebrated individual achievement in the field of Professional Cinema.

That was then. This is now.

FoxNews,com reports that

The 90th annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday with returning host Jimmy Kimmel taking the stage encouraging positivity, before quickly taking jabs at President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and even Fox News viewers.

Despite calling for a show filled with positivity, both the host and stars like Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong’o made the movie-centric show political.

Kimmel began with an old-timey announcement in which he listed the stars in attendance, making his first political jab with “Black Panther” actress Lupita Nyong’o.

“The stunning Lupita Nyong’o, she was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya,” Kimmel said at the top of the show. “Let the tweetstorm from the president’s toilet begin!”

From there, the host launched into a positive monologue that poked fun at the whirlwind year in Hollywood, which saw the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements dominate the headlines and previous award shows. In commenting on the year’s diversity, he highlighted “Get Out” helmer Jordan Peele.

“Jordan is only the first person in 90 years to be nominated for directing, writing and best picture for his debut film,” he said. “What a debut it was. None other than President Trump called ‘Get Out’ the best first three-quarters of a movie this year.”

The final political jab came when discussing the gay romance film “Call Me By Your Name.” The host noted that the film, despite being an Oscar-nominated feature, did not score big at the box office.

“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” he quipped. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”

He lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: “Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News.”

He also said the Oscar, “Keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and most importantly no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”

Yes, folks, those “jokes” were actually meant to be funny.

I wonder what the swashbuckling man’s man, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., would have thought about this bunch of no-talent crybabies who have politicized the award show that he worked so had to get off the ground?

He probably would have punched Kimmel right in the mouth.

Once again, the Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened almost a year and a half ago.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Over the last few several decades, Hollywood has vied for the title of “Sin City” with “Lost Wages (Las Vegas) through its glorification of the decadent and demonic. The family-friendly, morally based classic horror films such as “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, and “The Wolf Man”, have long since been replaced by Jason, Freddy, “Jigsaw”, and “Insidious”.

Meanwhile, love stories like “The Notebook” have been pushed aside for celebrations of pedophilia, like “Call Me By My Name”.

What is interesting to note, though, in the middle of the continuing Liberal Takeover and ongoing Political Meltdown in Hollyweird is the backlash by average Americans to the attempted shaping of our American Culture and Society. Please note the overwhelming popularity of Super Hero Movies, in which Good triumphs over Evil.

Just like the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Yes…I said it.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and comport themselves like those Hollywood Legends before them, who served their country during World War II, doing whatever they could to help America defeat fascism.

And, perhaps, they would have had the intestinal fortitude to have shown Harvey Weinstein the door a long time ago.

Last night was nothing but an exercise in self-adulation by a bunch of self- absorbed, over-medicated, under-talented, bodyguard-using, gated community-living America-hating Liberals who want to tell us “commoners” that we should not listen to that still small voice in each of us and embrace decadence and turn in our Bibles and guns, while at the same time foreswearing any traditional American Ethics and Values which we still hold dear, in order to properly worship them and the Altar of Political Correctness which they have helped to create.

To which I and the overwhelming majority of average Americans living between the coasts reply in unison…

SHUT UP AND ACT!!!

Trump Wins the Government Shutdown. Why Did the Dems Fold? – A KJ Analysis

January 23, 2018

dems-deal-gov-shutdown

“The Democrats are now executing pages in their playbook that they’ve executed countless times before. Original technique, original strategies? There aren’t any anymore. The Democrats have become the most predictable group that we have.” – Rush Limbaugh, 1/22/2018

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to break a Democratic filibuster on a stalled government spending bill, clearing the way for Congress to approve the stopgap measure and end the three-day government shutdown.

Democrats effectively backed off their opposition, after being given assurances from majority Republicans.

Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer made clear that Senate Democrats would supply the GOP-controlled Senate with the votes needed, but only in exchange for “fair” and immediate efforts to consider legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

“We will vote today to reopen the government,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, said on the Senate floor. “In a few hours, the government will reopen.”

The 100-member, Republican-controlled chamber will now need only a simple majority to pass the temporary spending bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8. The House would then have to approve the bill, sending it to President Trump’s desk.

The funding and reopening of the government would allow U.S. military personnel to be paid, end the furlough of nearly 1 million federal workers and resume all federal services and operations.

But congressional lawmakers made clear after the test vote that they’re still faced with challenges, like how to fund hurricane disaster relief and craft a comprehensive immigration reform bill on which both parties can agree.

“We still have a lot more work to do,” said Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa.

After days and weeks of blaming and finger-pointing, a bipartisan group of senators met Sunday and brokered a deal in which rank-and-file members would provide the 60 votes in exchange for Senate leaders’ promise to immediately proceed to immigration reform.

Democrats largely opposed the stopgap spending bill because it did not include provisions to protect the illegal immigrants from deportation under former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.

President Trump last year set a deadline of early March to end the protections. The president has indicated that he wants to provide permanent protections for the young illegal immigrants but has insisted that border security, particularly funding for his U.S.-Mexico border wall, be included in any such deal.

Under the apparent deal to end the filibuster, Schumer said Monday they would negotiate on immigration, and immediately consider such legislation if there’s no agreement by Feb. 8.

Schumer lauded the bipartisan group’s weekend efforts and suggested the group could lead efforts to replace DACA with permanent, legislative protections.

However, he also needled Trump, whom he said on Friday rejected his compromise plan that included money for the border wall.

“Today we enter the third day of the Trump shutdown,” Schumer said before saying we would provide the votes to get to the spending bill. Republicans call it the “Schumer Shutdown.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., then thanked Schumer and said: “I think if we’ve learned anything during this process, it’s that a strategy to shut down the government over the issue of illegal immigration is something the American people didn’t understand and would not have understood in the future. So I’m glad we’ve gotten past that.”

With Republicans having just 50 senators available to vote Monday, they needed the support of roughly a dozen Democratic senators to break the filibuster. They got 33, according to the Associated Press.

The 18 senators who didn’t vote to end debate included Republican Sens. Mike Lee, of Utah, and Rand Paul, of Kentucky.

The 15 Democrats in opposition were Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, both of Connecticut; Cory Booker and Bob Menendez, both of New Jersey; Catherine Cortez Masto, of Nevada; Kirsten Gillibrand, of New York; Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii; Patrick Leahy, of Vermont; Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, both of Massachusetts; Jon Tester, of Montana, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, both of Oregon; and Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, both of California. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, also voted in opposition.

Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain did not vote because he’s home fighting cancer.

McConnell on Sunday night indicated a deal was in the works to break the filibuster, in exchange for immediately addressing Democrats’ desire for immigration reform.

“When the Democrat filibuster of the government funding bill ends, the serious, bipartisan negotiations that have been going on for months now to resolve our unfinished business — military spending; disaster relief; health care; immigration and border security — will continue,” he said Sunday in announcing the Monday vote.

“It would be my intention to resolve these issues as quickly as possible … Importantly, when I proceed to the immigration debate, it will have an amendment process that is fair to all sides. But the first step in any of this is re-opening the government and preventing any further delay.”

Early Monday, before the vote, the Trump White House and Capitol Hill Republicans cranked up the pressure on Democrats to abandon their immediate demands for immigration measures and vote in support of the temporary spending bill.

“They shut down the government,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “The pressure is on them.”

President Trump tweeted that Democrats shut down the government to appease the “far left base” and are now “powerless” to change course.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955428815777533952

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good!” he tweeted.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955426609326100480

The vote Monday was the GOP-controlled Senate’s second attempt to break the filibuster, after failing to get the required 60 votes Friday. The Friday night vote was 50-49.

So, gentle readers…why did Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Far Left butt-kissing Democrats surrender to President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans?

Of course, you will never hear the word “surrender ” in the Main Stream Media’s accounts of the end of Schumer’s Shutdown, but, that is exactly what happened.

Conservative Political Pundits, including the Maha Rushie himself, stated that the shutdown was cooked up by the Democrats in order to distract from Trump’s Economic Boom, which shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

This being the case, the Democrats certainly could not admit to it, so, they conjured up a never-ending fountain of crocodile tears for the plight of the “poor Dreamers”, adults who came here illegally as children and have done nothing since then to become legal.

In other words, gentle readers, Dreamers want all of the privilege of being an American Citizen with no personal responsibility attached.

So, with an excuse for shutting down the government fabricated, Chucky and his merry band of Marxists fulfilled their Vision Quest and shut down OUR Federal Government in the name of lawbreakers who should have never been here in the first place.

Brilliant plan, right?

Au contraire, mon frere.

Republicans started getting the attention of average Americans by focusing on the fact that the hard-earned paychecks of our Brightest and Best would not be delivered because of the Democrats placing the welfare of illegal immigrants over that of the sons and daughters of average American Citizens who are serving our country.

There is an old adage in show business stating that if you write a play for the theater or a screenplay for a Hollywood Movie, you had better make sure before you sink money into it that it will “play well in Peoria”, meaning that average Americans would like it and support it.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, and amusingly for the rest of us, the cause du jour which they staked their shutdown on, did NOT “play well in Peoria”.

Judging by how quickly the Dems folded, their internal polling numbers must have resembled the average I.Q. of those kids out there taking the Tide Pod Challenge.

Another factor which went against the Dems’ chance for a victorious outcome to their shutdown, was the fact that we have a sitting American President who is not a professional politician, but rather, a “Citizen Statesman”, who is an expert in negotiation.

He may negotiate…but Trump NEVER backs down.

The last factor which I believe has something to do with the Dems ending the Shutdown, is the fact that Chucky and the Democrats are watching a Political Tsunami building size and momentum offshore, which is heading straight for them, in the form of an investigation into the Deep State Operation against the candidacy of Donald J. Trump, which has been dubbed “Obamagate”.

With a “shocking” 4-page memo detailing covert and treasonous activity designed to usurp the will of the people by the Obama Administration about to be released, Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrat Hierarchy realized that they were in an untenable position.

They had to “stop the bleeding” before they “bled out”.

Gentle readers, I cannot remember a time when the Republicans came out on the winning side of a Government Shutdown.

But then again, this is the first time in what seems like forever that they were following the lead of an American President who refused to back down.

Until He Comes,

Obama Says Americans Who Watch Fox News are “Living on a Different Planet”. Yeah. It’s Called Reality.

January 13, 2018

 

letterman-obama-1024x537

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” – Barack Hussein Obama, April 2008

FoxNews.com reports that

Former President Barack Obama resurfaced on Friday and took a shot at Fox News viewers, saying they’re “living on a different planet” than people who consume mainstream media.

Obama made the remarks on the premiere of the new monthly Netflix series “My next guest needs no introduction with David Letterman,” which hit the streaming service on Friday morning. Early in the episode, Obama asked Letterman about his retirement but the veteran talk show host quickly let the former president know who was boss.

“Now here’s how this is gonna work. I’m gonna ask you stuff, and then you respond to stuff,” Letterman joked.

Letterman then asked Obama what he considers the more dangerous threat to a democracy, the president demeaning the press or a foreign power sabotaging the voting process. Both options are clearly jabs at President Trump and Obama answered without mentioning the current president’s name.

“One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” Obama said. “If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”

The response got a big round of applause from the presumably liberal crowd at the City College of New York. Obama has a long history of taking shots at Fox News but the recent comment marks his first public attack on the network and its viewers since leaving the White House.

While Trump is often criticized for attacking the media and labeling CNN as “fake news,” Obama’s comment is a reminder that the White House and the press have sparred for decades. Obama once even accused Fox News of “attacking” his administration during an interview with CNBC. 

Letterman said goodbye to his long-running talk show two years ago and has launched a six-episode series on Netflix. In each hour-long episode, Letterman conducts a long-form conversation with a single guest, and explores topics of his own outside the studio.

George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern are scheduled to be guests on Letterman’s show over the next five months. 

Years ago, I wrote a 5,000 word unofficial biography about Obama titled“The Great Disconnect: The Whole, Ugly Truth About Barack Hussein Obama” in which I traced his history from his childhood to his introduction at the 2004 Democratic National Convention where he was hailed as the next “rising star” of the party.

Obama and those “True Believers”, who thought that he was the greatest thing since sliced bread about the ones from a different planet.

It is being proven daily as average Americans bear witness to these “True Believers” never ending throwing of a National Temper Tantrum over the loss of their peerless leader’s chosen successor to Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016.

It ruined their plans to complete the “Lightbringer’s” mission to turn America into a Socialist Paradise.

How do I know that Obama was a Socialist?

Let me count the ways by offering up a tribute to the late Paul Harvey, which I wrote a while back, titled “If I Were a Socialist United States President”…

“If I were a Socialist United States President…

I would begin to plant seeds during my Inaugural Address, concerning the disparity between the Haves and the Have-nots. In other words, I would intentionally begin to divide the nation through the use of Racial Animus and Class Warfare.

Also, during that address I would push for a National Healthcare System, regardless of the fact that such a monstrous entity has never worked, anywhere it has been tried.

I would preach about hope and change, but like all Marxists, I would be hoping to bring subjugation and looking to “radically change” a nation, all in the name of “Fairness and Equality”.

The first thing I would do, when I took office, would be to send money around the world, to finance abortions. In this way, I would show the world that there is a new boss in the United States, who wants to radically change the Shining City on a Hill into just another country.

Next, I would push for the passage of an outrageous spending bill that would actually be a cover for paying back political favors.

I would invite the already-sycophantic Main Stream Media to come to the White House for closed-door meetings, where I would tell them to “get with the program”, if they wanted to receive any news stories from this White House at all.

I would make speeches about how marvelous a Government-run National Healthcare  System would be, making hollow promises like,

If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

…all the while knowing that I was lying my hindquarters off.

Once I got my slaves in the Congress to pass this nation-changing National Healthcare Law, I would put the pedal to the metal and continuously push for other outrageous and expensive programs designed to grow the central government.

I would convince Americans that growing the central government is the only solution to a rapidly failing economy and that being unemployed and unable to provide for your family is actually a “fun-cation”.

And, while Americans were suffering through this Economic Depression, I would rant and rave about “Income Inequality”, while my family and I would take frequent vacations, costing the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and throw lavish private parties at the White House, in a manner reminiscent of the old Soviet Union’s Politburo.

Realizing that the Heartland of America was still Conservative in nature, I would reach out to those Americans who believe themselves to be a mistreated minority. I would reach out to those on the fringes of society. Those Americans, who because of poor upbringing, poor education, or simply making bad decisions concerning their lives, now consider themselves deprived of the American Dream.

These people would compose about 47 percent of the population. They would be my core supporters, much like Nikolai Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Having done a miserable job in my First Term as President, I would promise these Bolsheviks that if reelected, I would be their Santa Claus.

And, I would continue to blame my predecessor for the wretched state of the economy, even though, by now, it would be my responsibility.

Once I was reelected, there would be no stopping me. It would not matter to me what the popularity polls said, I would continue to claim that those who provide Americans with jobs were “the evil 1%” and identify their success in creating the Greatest Economic System in the World, as the “real reason” for the Economic Depression that America was in.

I would change the Moderate political stances which I “supposedly” held during the campaign for my first election as President, and show my true colors, following a political path pursuant to my true Far Left Radical Political Ideology.

Reverting back to the one job in my life that I was good at, that of being a “Community Organizer”, I would encourage an “Us Vs. Them” Racial Division in America, supporting out-of-control rioters over those who protect the Citizens of the United States, the Thin Blue Line, America’s Police Departments, because then, I could use the situation to create my own National Police Force.

I would alienate Conservative Christians living in America’s Heartland by vilifying them as “Bitter Clingers”, marginalizing them throughout my presidency, even to the point of lecturing them in my Easter Address, telling them to get off their “high horse”, basically saying that the followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, are no better than the murderous followers of Mohammed, whose Ideological Brethren continue to murder Christians in the Middle East.

I would push for “gay marriage”,  demonizing Bible-believing Christians, who might oppose it as “bigots” and “haters” and I would voice my support for the legalization of marijuana.

Through redefining the definition of the family unit, and eliminating Christianity from everyday American Life, I will eliminate the “backbone” of the nation…the two main barriers that will keep me from radically changing America into a socialist nation.

Through pushing for the legalization of marijuana, I would succeed in dumbing down the population and eliminating their desire to succeed as individuals, making them even more subservient and reliant on the Almighty State for their very existence, thus creating a new “Proletariat”.

Regarding Foreign Policy, I would bow in deference to other world leaders, demonstrating to them and the rest of the world, that I do not believe that the United States of America, whom I am supposed to be the Biggest Advocate for, is exceptional in any way.

I would not negotiate with America’s Enemies from a position of strength. Instead, I would blindly trust those who have sworn to kill us, even if they are on the threshold of building a nuclear bomb, simply because I identify with their Political Ideology, which masquerades as a religion.

I would pull out of still turbulent areas in the Middle East, encouraging the Barbaric Forces of Radical Islam to move in and conquer the very cities where our Brightest and Best sacrificed their lives in service to America.

On the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, I would sit at a solemn International Memorial Service, smacking my gum like a cow chews his cud, as if I was behind the bench at a Chicago Bulls Basketball Game, dishonoring our fallen and enraging our allies.

In other words, I would embrace America’s Enemies, and alienate America’s Friends.

I would use the finest military in the world as a subject for Social Engineering Experiments, ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and moving women into combat positions, even though their lack of physical strength would endanger the American Soldiers they are fighting beside.

Following this, I would  eventually allowing the “Transgendered” to serve in our Armed Forces.

I would remove God from the Armed Forces and forbid soldiers from speaking about Christ to others. I would also begin Military Training which would identify Evangelicals as “Terrorists”.

While I am at it, I would push for my wife to be able to place the military on a diet plan that is similar to the one which would already be failing in America’s Public Schools.

I would trade 5 Murderous Muslim Terrorist Generals, for one useless, traitorous, American Army Deserter, who was discharged in 2006 from the Coast Guard for Psychological Issues, who later converted to the Religious/Political Ideology of his Captors, and whose Father’s Youtube Account praised the same Radical Muslims and their Political Ideology which poses as a religion, just because I wish to make a Political Point about closing the prison in which the enemies of our country were being held.

I would use the Judicial System, The Department of Justice, the NSA, and  Internal Revenue Service as my Palace Guard, using Activist judges to overturn the will of the people and harassing political opposition through uncalled-for Tax Audits.

I would use unmanned drones and blimps for unwarranted surveillance on American Citizens.

I would push for Gun Confiscation, calling it “Gun Control”, in the “name of the children”, all the while supporting the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs, because having a baby is “a punishment”.

Because, after all, as Vladimir Lenin said,

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

I would imperiously announce that if Congress did not pass the laws that I wanted them to pass, I would go around them and rule by Executive Order.

I would open our Southern Borders, bypassing our immigration laws, encouraging millions of illegal aliens to enter our nation, including unaccompanied minors, spurred on by propaganda intentionally leaked to their Latin American Home Nations in support of this Mexican Munchkin Migration.

All the while, pushing Congress for “Immigration Reform”, i.e., “Amnesty”, in order to assure that my Political Party would hold onto their Political Power, in order to finish the intentional “Radical Change” of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

And, if Congress refused to follow my wishes, I would attempt to grant Amnesty through “Executive Order”, bypassing the System of Checks and Balances that America’s Founding Fathers put into place, so long ago, in order to avoid a monarchy, such as they rebelled against.

Finally, if I were a Socialist U.S. President, I would blame others for my incompetency. I would portray myself as a victim of a Capitalist System and a Racist Ideology that was still prevalent in a nation that was too narrow-minded to allow me to lead them to a Socialist Paradise, even though my wife and I were worth millions or dollars, I was the President of the United States of America, and we took numerous vacations and went on “fact-finding missions” at the expense of the American Taxpayers.

Of course, that could never happen HERE, could it?

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

And, that’s where I stopped my analysis.

Mr. Thomas was almost right.

However, he underestimated the American People.

And, because of that, we have a Former President going on a streaming talk show hosted by a Far Left Skirt-chasing retired former employee of CBS and telling Americans who watch the leader in Cable News that there is something wrong with us for not listening to the Main Stream Media, the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

Stay classy…and clueless, Petulant President Pantywaist.

Until He Comes,

KJ
