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

June 20, 2018

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 Quotes Bible About “Separated Children”…No, Really

June 19, 2018

hillary-clinton-covfefe

Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice—not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. – Hillary Clinton, “Women in the Word Summit”, April 2015

Average Americans have all known for sometime that this is not our fathers’ Democratic Party. Conservatives have been driven out and “Moderates” are an endangered species.

Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Political Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being…until they need to reference Him for political leverage and justification.

Don’t believe me?

FoxNews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton on Monday slammed the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy that has left hundreds of children separated from their parents, calling it a “moral and humanitarian crisis.”

Speaking at a women’s event in New York, the former secretary of state said President Trump’s claim that breaking apart adults and their children who enter the U.S. illegally is a law instilled by Democrats is “an outright lie.”

Her remarks at the Women’s Forum of New York awards lunch were followed up by a tweet on Monday afternoon in which Clinton said: “Every parent who has ever held a child in their arms, every human behind with a sense of compassion and decency, should be outraged.”

Clinton also took a swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who, on Thursday, cited the Bible to defend the border policy, and added that recent criticisms were not “fair or logical and some are contrary to law.”

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” Sessions said. “Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.”

Clinton said that “those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity.”

“I’ve studied the bible, both the Old and the New Testament,” the 2016 presidential candidate said. “What is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught.”

She invoked her own quote from the Bible — Matthew 19:14 — in response, saying that “Jesus said suffer the little children unto me. He did not say let the children suffer.”

Clinton added that former First Lady Laura Bush’s sentiments published Sunday in an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which she referred to the the administration’s policy as “cruel” and “immoral” and it “breaks [her] heart, are “absolutely right.”

First, as I wrote in a post published yesterday, President Barack Hussein Obama separated illegal immigrant children from their families during his use of ATEP.

So, Hillary is actually the one who told an outright lie, which is nothing unusual for her.

Somehow, Hillary and other vocal members of the Far left Democratic Party somehow believe that they can appeal to the Christian Faith of average Americans and somehow gain a political advantage in both the upcoming 2018 Midterm Elections and their ongoing effort to undermine the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The problem with this strategy is one of their own making.

After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.

And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.

What is amazing to me, though, is how American Christianity is still constantly attacked by Liberals such as Hillary on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22

When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.

There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.

At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14

This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to do in our society.

If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, and now, more than a year and a half after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.

It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.

Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way…as the days since November 8th, 2016 have plainly showed.

For Liberal Democrats such as Hillary Clinton to now attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against an immigration policy which they created, in order to oppose the presidency of President Trump, after turning their back on God for years, is a display of hypocrisy that would had made even the ancient Pharisees blush.

In fact, their desperation reminds me of a passage found in the New Testament,

22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ – Matthew 7:22-23

Hillary and the Democrats , as polls published the last few days are showing, are hurting no one but themselves.

They remain oblivious to the fact that one must always be careful…because when you point a finger at someone, there are always four pointing back at you.

Why Didn’t Dems Care About “Separated Families” Under Obama’s ATEP?

June 18, 2018

1528204092329

FoxNews.com reports that

The head of the Department of Homeland Security bashed the media Sunday for their reporting on the increasingly volatile immigration controversy, writing in a string of tweets: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen added: “This misreporting by Members, press & advocacy groups must stop. It is irresponsible and unproductive. As I have said many times before, if you are seeking asylum for your family, there is no reason to break the law and illegally cross between ports of entry.”

She noted that no one is “breaking the law by seeking asylum at a port of entry.”

The head of the Department of Homeland Security bashed the media Sunday for their reporting on the increasingly volatile immigration controversy, writing in a string of tweets: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”

The Trump administration, which has called it “horrible” that illegal-immigrant children are sometimes separated from their parents when their parents enter criminal proceedings, has been criticized in recent weeks for increasing the prosecutions of illegal immigrants under a “zero-tolerance” policy that critics say leads to those separations.

A child illegally entering the U.S. is generally separated from adults at the border if the child is in danger, has no clear relationship to the adult, or if the adult enters criminal proceedings.

Through Twitter, Nielsen reiterated that current policies are derived from laws already in the books: “For those seeking asylum at ports of entry, we have continued the policy from previous Administrations and will only separate if the child is in danger, there is no custodial relationship between ‘family’ members, or if the adult has broken a law.”

She added: “DHS takes very seriously its duty to protect minors in our temporary custody from gangs, traffickers, criminals and abuse.”

This push by the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, to paint the President as a heartless monster is very hypocritical and disingenuous.

Per rewire.news,

The practice of separating immigrant families at the border isn’t new.

The Alien Transfer Exit Program

The United States since 2008 has had a policy called the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP), which detains male Mexican migrants near the border and, instead of repatriating them to their area of origin, leaves them hundreds—and sometimes thousands—of miles away at the opposite end of the U.S.-Mexico border. They are often released from custody at unusual times of day in completely unfamiliar areas where they have no family or other support system. The practice is supposed to deter further border crossing attempts, but instead it subjects migrants to crime and danger.

In 2011, the Alien Transfer Exit Program affected an estimated one-fifth of migrants detained by Border Patrol along the southwest border. That’s because ATEP ramped up under the Obama administration as a way to handle the spike in Mexican migrants attempting to enter the United States.

…“Under the transfer program, many immigrants who are caught in California are flown to Texas border cities, and the flights return west filled with immigrants caught in Texas. In Arizona, immigrant groups are divided, with some deported through Texas and others through California,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

Federal immigration agencies have long claimed that ATEP “breaks the smuggling cycle by physically separating aliens from the smuggling organizations that will repeatedly attempt to bring guide them into this country,” but the program—called “cruel and unusual punishment” by human rights’ advocates—has separated families.

‘Lateral Repatriation’ Is Family Separation

While ATEP targets Mexican men attempting to enter the United States, the program doesn’t just nab men traveling alone. Men migrating with their families are separated from them, detained, and transported to an unfamiliar place in Mexico, while their partners and children are left to languish in detention centers. In 2011, during the height of ATEP, almost none of the reporting about the program focused on family separation.

The Arizona-based organization No More Deaths refers to ATEP as “lateral repatriation,” noting that the program often separates family members and purposely sends them to cities far from one other. Families aren’t notified of where each member ends up, leaving them unaware of where their partners and children are.

In other words, gentle readers, the Democrats really do not care about these “poor separated children”.

If they actually did, they would have protested ATEP under Obama.

Just like Obama used children as human political props after the Sandy Hook Massacre and Democratic Activists have been using children in school walkouts to try to achieve the taking away of guns from Americans, this sudden “concern” over the welfare of the children of those who wish to illegally enter our Sovereign Nation is nothing but a political ploy.

It is a plan born out of a Democratic desperation to avoid a Republican Sweep in the Midterm Elections by somehow damaging President Trump.

I mean, they had to do SOMETHING.

Mueller and his investigators have produced nothing but a big fat zero in their attempt to prove that the Russians got Trump elected President.

The Dems’ “Stormy” attempt to re-invent a porn actress into a saint fizzled out.

Their attacks on the integrity of the Trump Marriage through accusations of spousal abuse after Melania was under doctor’s orders to stay at home after her kidney surgery just brought the MSM more ridicule.

And, De Niro showing his hindquarters hasn’t helped the Democrats , either.

So, they decided to prove that they are the “Party That Cares” by trying to “protect the children” through staging photo ops of them attempting to forcibly enter the centers where the illegal immigrant children are being cared for.

Heck, if they actually cared about the welfare of children, they wouldn’t advocate for a million of them to be yanked out of their mothers’ wombs every year in America.

Oh, the irony.

God help us.

CBS Posts “Fake News” Story About Sarah Huckabee Sanders

June 14, 2018

Sanders holds the daily briefing at the White House in Washington

FoxNews.com reports that

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back Wednesday night against a report that she was considering leaving her role, saying she “loves” her job and is “honored” to work with President Trump.

Sanders was replying to an earlier CBS News report that both she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah have considered leaving their positions in the administration.

“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future,” Sanders asked in a tweet. “I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me.” [as seen above]

Both Sanders and Shah are weighing future options, Fox News has learned, which may or may not include their departures from the White House.

Sanders has talked about departing sometime after November’s mid-term elections and although Shah’s timetable is unclear, it could possibly come sooner – although both could remain in their roles, too.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah is considering leaving his role, a new report claims.  (AP)

Sanders recently returned from a lengthy trip abroad with Trump which culminated in the president’s historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore Tuesday morning.

The daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sanders managed her father’s presidential campaign in 2016 before joining Trump’s. She was later promoted to White House press secretary following the July 2017 resignation of Sean Spicer.

Shah, who was promoted to the deputy press secretary position last September after working as the Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Communications Director, did not immediately respond to the conjecture about his future. 

So, Fake News strikes again.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so blindingly desperate to bring down a successful President Donald J. Trump that they have targeted his staff through the continuation of their strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own still hurt feelings over their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

And now, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has to deal with their boorish behavior after hours since they can’t get the best of her in the Daily Press Briefings.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bringing home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies that have continuously been peddled by the Main Stream Media during the tenure of our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news is that the majority of Americans, no matter what the Democrat-heavy polls continue to say, are still not buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

President Trump figured out a long time ago will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he ever have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is the Main Stream Media refuses to end their conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point of insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump by us “rubes” here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also faced the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who, for the past year, has treated them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump was speaking, only to find out that they had been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he was trying to forward that day.

He also refuses to play nice with them when they slander him and everyone around him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

Please refer to Acosta’s asinine behavior at the North Korean Summit and the just treatment which he received from President Trump.

Additionally, The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Principled reporters, such as the late Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin, turned up the heat on the MSM, by providing an alternative source through which Americans could receive news, unfiltered by those in the Halls of Power.

Unfortunately for the MSM , as 2016 Presidential Campaign and the first year and a half of President Trump’s First Term have shown, and as I have documented along the way, Americans have become our own “reporters” thanks to the “New Media”.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes appears daily through  live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, like the little Dutch Boy, the MSM does not know which hole to plug, in the leaking dam, first.

Just like the Internet Trolls, who invade Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, in order to disrupt conversation and call attention to themselves, the MSM, through the creation of their own facts, has permanently damaged their own credibility, quite probably beyond all repair.

Because, to put it quite simply, once you torque off the American Public, you never get them back.

Just ask the Dixie Chicks….and the NFL.

McCabe Sues DOJ Over Firing Just Before IG Report Release…Squirrel!

June 13, 2018

untitled (244)

Remember when you were a child and you did something wrong, like breaking your Mom’s favorite vase and when she asked you about it, you claimed that you did not know what happened?

A disgraced Former Deputy Director of the FBI and his lawyers are attempting the same strategy.

FoxNews.com reports that

Lawyers representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a suit against the Justice Department and FBI on Tuesday, alleging that they wouldn’t give up files connected to his ouster.

McCabe’s lawyers claimed the Justice Department has denied access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said. The suit also named the office of the DOJ inspector general.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer representing McCabe, told The Associated Press.

A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

McCabe was fired in March just a few days shy of his retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after it was reported that McCabe leaked a story to the press and later lied about it to former FBI Director James Comey.

His dismissal followed a report from the inspector general’s office earlier this year that concluded McCabe repeatedly deceived investigators. It referred the matter for potential criminal prosecution to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington. McCabe has denied the allegations and said that when he thought his answers were being misunderstood during interviews with investigators, he tried to correct the record.

According to the lawsuit, McCabe’s firing came after “proceedings that violated federal law and departed from applicable administrative rules, standards, policies and procedures.” It noted that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires related documents to be produced for review.

“Defendants, however, have not disclosed those materials, whether proactively or upon request from Plaintiff as counsel for Mr. McCabe. That failure is contrary to law,” the lawsuit said. “It is incongruous with Defendants’ public, and repeated, representations to the effect that Mr. McCabe was dismissed from the FBI following an ‘extensive and fair investigation’ which was carried out ‘according to Department of Justice procedure.'”

McCabe’s lawyers signaled they wanted “immediate” access to documents including an inspector general manual outlining the guidelines governing the office and FBI policy guides on how disciplinary matters should be handled.

McCabe’s lawyers said they wanted the records as they “seek to vindicate Mr. McCabe’s rights and restore his good name,” and as they weighed whether to take more legal action.

Why should you have been fired, Former Deputy Director McCade?

Well, for starters a very revealing report was issued by the Department of Justice back in April, revealed that you misled investigators multiple times about your role in a news media leak. The report states that investigators

“…concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

Also…

The DOJ’s April report found that McCabe authorized a leak to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the contents of a telephone call in August 2016.

“Among the purposes of the disclosure was to rebut a narrative that had been developing following a story in the WSJ on October 23, 2016, that questioned McCabe’s impartiality in overseeing FBI investigations involving [Clinton], and claimed that McCabe had ordered the termination of the [FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation] due to Department of Justice pressure,” the report says.

In January, The Journal reported that McCabe knew of thousands of emails related to the Clinton investigation for at least a month before Comey told Congress about them. 

The day he was fired, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that “the FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.” 

About that whole “integrity” thingy…

McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015. The political action committee for then-Virginia Governor McAuliffe, a Democrat and Clinton ally, donated $467,500 to her campaign, while the Virginia Democratic party gave $207,788, The Journal reported. Andrew McCabe was associate deputy director of the FBI at the time.

McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind,” the FBI told The Journal in a statement. “Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Even with McAuliffe’s help, Dr. McCabe lost the election.

A Former Presidential Administration weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from Becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

And now, with the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of the FBI concerning their involvement with Hillary Clinton’s “E-mailgate”, one of those whose activities will most certainly be included in said report is throwing a “Hail Mary” Legal Maneuver” in hopes of distracting from the fact that he knows exactly why he was fired.

Just as Former FBI Director James Comey published a book and went on a press tour in order to attempt to cover his duplicitous activities, so is Former Deputy Director McCabe attempting to change the public’s perception of him by acting “innocent”.

Considering how poorly Comey’s effort was received, one would have thought that McCabe would have learned a lesson.

It appears that he hasn’t.

However, he had better “study up on it”.

There will be a “Pop Quiz” tomorrow.

Until He Comes,

The Summit…Why Liberals Don’t Want Trump to Succeed

June 12, 2018

1232492255-Trump-Skipping-Prep-For-North-Korean-Summit_hires.jpg

On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. This invasion was the first military action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Korea’s behalf. As far as American officials were concerned, it was a war against the forces of international communism itself. After some early back-and-forth across the 38th parallel, the fighting stalled and casualties mounted with nothing to show for them. Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans. The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III. Finally, in July 1953, the Korean War came to an end. In all, some 5 million soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the war. The Korean peninsula is still divided today. (courtesy of history.com)

Now, 65 years later, after failure upon failure to negotiate some sort of resolution to a bloody conflict which was suspended via a truce and never actually ended, a Citizen Statesman stands poised to possibly accomplish something no Professional Politician elected American President has been able to.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump shook hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore shortly after 9 a.m. local time Tuesday, kicking off a historic summit meeting and marking a new era in relations between the U.S. and the totalitarian state known as the Hermit Kingdom.

Moments later, as Trump and Kim sat side-by-side, the American president told a group of reporters: “We will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.” Kim said through an interpreter that it “was not easy to get here” and that there “were obstacles, but we overcame them to be here.”

About 40 minutes later, the two leaders emerged from one-on-one talks accompanied by their interpreters and made a brief appearance on a balcony. When asked how talks were progressing, Trump said: “Very good. Very, very good. Excellent relationship, thank you.”

Moments later, Trump and Kim were joined by their aides for expanded discussions and a working lunch. On the U.S. side, Trump was accompanied by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Meanwhile back home in the good ol’ U.S.A., ideally one might expect for the entire nation to be rooting our President on in his efforts to disarm the “Little Rocket Man”, Kim Jong Un.

There’s just one problem: Modern American Liberals, led by those in Hollywood, and “Never Trumpers”, like Republican Senator John McCain, want President Trump to fail.

A prime example of this self-destructive behavior is movie “tough guy” Robert De Niro using the venue of the Tony Awards , which was televised live on Sunday Night, to shout “F*** Trump”!

Why don’t these idiots want America to succeed?

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh once again his the nail on the head when he observed that

….They look at Donald Trump and here are massive achievements left and right, serious policy improvements and implementations, foreign policy, domestic policy, economic policy were off and running, and everybody seems to condemn that ’cause of the way Trump talks. It reminds me of an observation I came up with early in this history of the program where liberals and Washington are devoted to symbolism over substance. Now it’s now become style over substance. But it’s still true. And I think, when you boil it down, the people in Washington, what they’re having trouble with here is the genuine substance of things because I think they are very rarely devoted to substance or involved. Everything’s symbolism; everything is perception; everything is PR; everything’s spin; very little is real.

And now a whole bunch of reality is hitting people upside the head day in and day out, and they simply don’t know how to deal with it, from Republican Never Trumpers to the Democrat Party, the American left, the media, and on and on and on.

Liberals’ Never-ending National Temper Tantrum which they have been throwing non-stop since the night of November 8, 2016 has caused their collective Hive-Mind to experience a break with reality.

Their desire to somehow get Trump out of office has caused them all to revert back to their early childhood when the only word in their limited vocabulary that mattered to them was

Mine! Mine! Mine!

Modern American Liberals from Hollywood to Washington, DC could care less about you and me and our children and our grandchildren.

They don’t care if the North Korean Summit fails. They will blame Trump.

They don’t care that Chicago is nothing but a killing field every weekend. They blame Trump.

They don’t care that average Americans are seeing extra money on our paychecks. It’s only “crumbs” because it is due to Trump’s Tax Cut.

Are you beginning to see the picture, gentle readers?

Modern American Liberals, such as Robert De Niro and Nancy Pelosi are SELFISH.

They could care less what happens to average Americans and our Sovereign Nation as long as they get theirs.

And, that’s fine.

As others have pointed out, all they are doing is ensuring President Trump’s Reelection.

Until He Comes,

Soros’ Candidates Lose in California, But They Were Just the Tip of The Iceberg

June 11, 2018

untitled (243)

With such a big week ahead for us as Americans, featuring our President’s historical meeting with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un and the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of Hillary Clinton, et all, due out on Thursday, one might think, judging from Trump’s continuous rise in the popularity polls, that we, as Americans, are well on our way to “Make America Great Again”.

Unfortunately, there remains a speed bump in the road again.

The following information comes courtesy of an article titled “Billionaire George Soros faces renewed attacks with defiance” which first appeared WashingtonPost.com

…Earlier this year, Patrick Gaspard, the former Obama White House political director who now runs Soros’ Open Society Foundations, said he asked the billionaire how he viewed the organization’s role at a time when so much of Soros’ work is under assault.

“This is the moment we were built for,” Soros responded, according to Gaspard.

The Hungarian-born Soros, who became one of the world’s wealthiest people by managing hedge funds and betting on currency changes, has given away billions of dollars to groups promoting human rights, democracy and liberal causes.

His New York-based Open Society Foundations now spends $940 million a year in 100 countries, promoting values such as free speech and free elections, according to the group. In the United States, the Open Society spends $150 million a year financing groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

For a period of time, Soros was the largest private donor in Russia, funding initiatives such as an anti-torture program, according to the foundation. Two years ago, Putin’s government effectively banned Soros’ group from distributing funds in the country, calling it “undesirable” and “a threat to the fundamentals of the constitutional system.”

Last week, Putin suggested that Soros’s spending around the world resembles the kind of political interference that U.S. intelligence officials blame on Russia.

“He intervenes in things all over the world,” Putin told Austrian television. “But the State Department will tell you that it has nothing to do with that, that this is the personal business of Mr. Soros.”

Elsewhere in Europe, Soros has also come under attack. This year, Viktor Orban, the right-wing prime minister of Hungary, won reelection after charging that Soros wanted to flood Europe with Muslim immigrants. Orban said one of his first efforts would be to pass a “Stop Soros” bill, aimed at cracking down on organizations he views as countering his agenda.

“I’m painfully aware that they are against the ideas that I stand for,” Soros said of his critics around the world.

In the United States, Soros was initially seen as an ally by Republicans who shared his opposition to communist dictators. He made modest donations to support the GOP in the 1980s and 1990s, according to campaign finance reports.

But he turned decisively against Republicans after President George W. Bush invaded Iraq in 2003 based on faulty intelligence about weapons of mass destruction.

Since then, his political spending – a fraction of the money he gives away every year – has made him one of the Democratic Party’s most reliable and generous donors.

In 2016, he poured at least $25 million into mobilizing Democratic voters in an effort to bolster Clinton and other candidates on the left, a Soros spokesman said.

…This cycle, Soros has focused his political investments on congressional races and mobilizing voters on the left. His largest donation this year has been $5 million to Win Justice, a voter-mobilization group focused on minorities, women and young voters in Florida, Michigan and Nevada.

He has also continued to invest in district attorney races, saying prosecutors are “the linchpin of the judicial system” and key to his effort to reduce prison sentences. He sent $1.45 million to a group that supported civil rights attorney Larry Krasner in his successful race for Philadelphia district attorney last year. A spokesman said Krasner had never met Soros or anyone in his organization.

Soros’ recent efforts in California were not so successful. Three of his candidates for district attorney in California lost their primaries, and a fourth faces a runoff.

His financial support became a political issue in some of the campaigns. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, who defeated her challenger Tuesday, claimed that the city was “under attack” from the billionaire, “who has brought his war against law enforcement” to Sacramento.

The breadth of Soros’ spending has made him a frequent target of critics on the right, who suggest he is secretly backing movements that appear to be driven by the grass roots.

Former congressman Jack Kingston, a Georgia Republican who is a CNN commentator, suggested on Twitter in February that Soros and other activists, rather than students, were behind a protest in the wake of a Florida high school shooting in which a gunman killed 17 people.

A spokesman said Soros had no involvement with the protest.

Actually, he did.

Remember the National School Walkout?

Last Year, Feminist Writer Asri Q. Normani of The New York Times reported concerning the funding for the “Women’s March on Washington” that

Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, a march “partner,” told me his organization was “nonpartisan” but has “many concerns about the incoming Trump administration that include what we see as a misogynist approach to women.” Nick Fish, national program director of the American Atheists, another march partner, told me, “This is not a ‘partisan’ event.” Dennis Wiley, pastor of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ, another march “partner,” returned my call and said, “This is not a partisan march.”

Really? UniteWomen.org, another partner, features videos with the hashtags #ImWithHer, #DemsInPhily and #ThanksObama. Following the money, I pored through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?

I found out: plenty.

By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

Have you ever noticed how secretive the inner workings of the groups who are financed by the Puppet Master George Soros are?

It is reminiscent of the history of secretive meetings held by Lenin and his Bolsheviks before the Russian Revolution. Or those held by Germany’s National Socialist Party before the Beer Hall Putsch.

As was the case in both of these examples, any “Democratic Socialist” nation we see around our Modern World, went through a course-altering revolution, whether through a violent overthrow of the Government or through a “radical change” in the political ideology of their nation and the way that their populace voted in the subsequent election.

I firmly believe that the mission of George Soros, from the moment he landed on our shores to this very day, has been exactly what his political puppet, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama, said that his was during his first presidential campaign: to “radically change” our nation into something that every patriotic American will no longer recognize.

America’s Alt-Left, which President Trump identified by name during the “Press Conference” which shall forever be known as the “Trump Tower Thrashing” is a generation of radicalized young people, who grew up during the Obama Administration being funded by those who wish to “radically change” America and who have been programmed by “Organizing for America”, Liberal College Professors, and a pop culture which told them that to love America and to respect her history and those who had gone before them, was “”jingoistic”.

They were told that it was evil to try to be better than others….to achieve and make their own way.

They were told that everyone “should be equal” and those who do achieve should “share the wealth”.

This programming led these young minds full of mush to become the “useful idiots” (as Communists used to call their dupes in the Cold War) whom we have been watching on television as they attack America’s History, our Constitutional method of deciding our leaders, and our duly elected President.

Add to that the rights of American citizens being granted to illegal aliens by Democrat Operatives, Un-vetted Radical Muslim “Refugees” pouring in by the thousands, and Soros’ covert and overt support of perpetually grieved protesters, paid to stage organized demonstrations which morph into riots, and the Alt-Left, through funding by Soros, Communist Organizations, and other sources, and it all adds up to America having to deal with our own version of Lenin’s Bolsheviks, holding meetings in secret because they know better than to allow the true motives of their political philosophy to be made public.

That is why the election of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency was so very important.

And, why the defeat of Soros’ California Democratic Candidates for the 2018 Mid-Term Elections is a very good sign.

Someone must stand in the way of George Soros and these “New Bolsheviks”, before history repeats itself on this side of the Atlantic, over 100 years later.

America’s survival as a free nation depends on it.

Trump’s 7 Big Accomplishments that Christian American Conservatives Should Love

June 10, 2018

 

US-POLITICS-TRUMP-SIGNING

I have known Donald Trump for almost 30 years. And he has created and accomplished great things. But beyond that, this is a man with a big heart. – Rudy Giuliani

The Christian Post reports that

Speaking to a ballroom filled with Christian conservatives Thursday, 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz reflected on seven of the biggest victories for faith and families achieved since Donald Trump took over the White House in January 2017.

During a luncheon kicking off the annual Road to Majority Conference hosted by the influential social conservative advocacy group Faith & Freedom Coalition, the Texas senator celebrated the conservative political accomplishments of the last year and a half.

1. The appointment of “principled, constitutionalist judges”

Conservatives were delighted when Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the bench. The former Tenth Circuit Court judge was confirmed on April 7, 2017.

In addition to the Gorsuch nomination, Trump has been successful in rapidly nominating federal judges at other levels of the judiciary.

2. Human Life

One of the first moves Trump made on the pro-life front was reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits foreign aid from going to organizations and clinics around the world that perform abortions.

3. Tax Cut

Cutting taxes on small businesses, cutting taxes on farmers, cutting taxes on ranchers, cutting taxes on families, doubling the standard deduction, What does that mean?” Cruz asked. “For a couple, standard deduction goes from $12,000 to $24,000. That means next year, 90 percent of Americans will be able to fill out your taxes on a postcard.”

4. Repealing of the Obamacare individual mandate

“That is a big conservative victory that no one in Washington thought we would win,” he [Cruz] said. “Look, Obamacare is clearly the biggest unfinished promise that Republicans have. We need to finish the job. We need to keep rolling up our sleeves and finish the job and repeal every single word of Obamacare.”

5. School choice tax bill amendment

Under the expansion, parents can withdraw up to $10,000 per year from their 529 plans to pay for their children’s primary or secondary education.

“With that, we saw the most far-reaching, federal school choice legislation that has ever passed come into law providing benefits to up to 50 million school kids across the country, enabling parents and grandparents to save for your kids and to save for your grandkids and choose the best education options for them.”

6. Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

“We had a year-and-a-half battle in the Trump administration. I interjetically argued for moving the embassy and President Trump made the right decision and now our embassy is in Jerusalem, the once and eternal capital of Israel.”

7. Withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal

“The president made the right decision to withdraw from the disastrous Obama-Iran nuclear deal. Obama had sent tens of billions of dollars to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, the Ayatollah Khomeini, who chants ‘Death to America and death to Israel.’ When he says that, I believe him,” Cruz said during the conference.

He asserted that the deal would have led to Iran having nuclear weapons.

It’s funny how a lot of us thought that Senator Cruz was going to be the Republican Presidential Candidate when the Primaries first began.

I’m glad that we were wrong.

For someone who is a pragmatist, Trump, as described by Senator Cruz has done a lot of things that Christian American Conservatives should love.

I know that for a fact because I am one.

During the past eighteen months, Americans have begun to witness a return to the values that made this country the greatest on the face of the Earth.

If you go to my personal website at www.kingsjester.wordpress.com, you will see the subtitle “Opinions from a Christian American Conservative”

Some of you may still be uncertain as to what the phrase “Christian American Conservative” means.  Please allow me to explain.

First word:  Christian – A follower of Jesus Christ.

I was raised as a Christian by my parents and accepted Christ as my personal Savior many years ago.

Here are some interesting things about Christianity to consider, written by Dr. Ray Pritchard and posted on christianity.com:

1) The name “Christian” was not invented by early Christians. It was a name given to them by others.
2) Christians called themselves by different names—disciples, believers, brethren, saints, the elect, etc.
3) The term apparently had a negative meaning in the beginning: “those belonging to the Christ party.”
4) It was a term of contempt or derision.
5) We can get a flavor for it if we take the word “Christ” and keep that pronunciation. You “Christ-ians.”
6) It literally means “Christ-followers.”
7) Over time a derogatory term became a positive designation.
8) Occasionally you will hear someone spit the term out in the same way it was used in the beginning. “You Christians think you’re the only ones going to heaven.”
9) There was a sense of suffering and reproach attached to the word in the New Testament.

In working my way toward an answer to “What is a Christian?” I decided to check out the dictionary. I found these two definitions:

1. One who professes belief in Jesus as Christ or follows the religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus. 2. One who lives according to the teachings of Jesus.”

That’s actually quite helpful because it gives some content to the word. To be a Christian means that you . . .

Believe Something
Follow Something
Live Something
A Fully Devoted Follower To borrow a contemporary phrase, we could simply say that a Christian is a “fully devoted follower of Jesus.” As I think about that, two insights come to mind.

1) It doesn’t happen by accident. You are not “born” a Christian nor are you a Christian because of your family heritage. Being a Christian is not like being Irish. You aren’t a Christian simply because you were born into a Christian family.
2) It requires conversion of the heart. By using the term “conversion,” I simply mean what Jesus meant when he said that to be his disciple meant to deny yourself, take up your cross and follow him (Luke 9:23). The heart itself must be changed so that you become a follower of the Lord.

Second word: American – A citizen of the United States of America.

Stephen M. Warchawsky, wrote the following in an article foramericanthinker.org:

So what, then, does it mean to be an American? I suspect that most of us believe, like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart in describing pornography, that we “know it when we see it.” For example, John Wayne, Amelia Earhart, and Bill Cosby definitely are Americans. The day laborers standing on the street corner probably are not. But how do we put this inner understanding into words? It’s not easy. Unlike most other nations on Earth, the American nation is not strictly defined in terms of race or ethnicity or ancestry or religion. George Washington may be the Father of Our Country (in my opinion, the greatest American who ever lived), but there have been in the past, and are today, many millions of patriotic, hardworking, upstanding Americans who are not Caucasian, or Christian, or of Western European ancestry. Yet they are undeniably as American as you or I (by the way, I am Jewish of predominantly Eastern European ancestry). Any definition of “American” that excludes such folks — let alone one that excludes me! — cannot be right.

Consequently, it is just not good enough to say, as some immigration restrictionists do, that this is a “white-majority, Western country.” Yes, it is. But so are, for example, Ireland and Sweden and Portugal. Clearly, this level of abstraction does not take us very far towards understanding what it means to be “an American.” Nor is it all that helpful to say that this is an English-speaking, predominately Christian country. While I think these features get us closer to the answer, there are millions of English-speaking (and non-English-speaking) Christians in the world who are not Americans, and millions of non-Christians who are. Certainly, these fundamental historical characteristics are important elements in determining who we are as a nation. Like other restrictionists, I am opposed to public policies that seek, by design or by default, to significantly alter the nation’s “demographic profile.” Still, it must be recognized that demography alone does not, and cannot, explain what it means to be an American.

So where does that leave us? I think the answer to our question, ultimately, must be found in the realms of ideology and culture. What distinguishes the United States from other nations, and what unites the disparate peoples who make up our country, are our unique political, economic, and social values, beliefs, and institutions. Not race, or religion, or ancestry.

Third word: Conservative – A person who holds to traditional values and attitudes.

J. Matt Barber wrote in the Washington Times that

Ronald Reagan often spoke of a “three-legged stool” that undergirds true conservatism. The legs are represented by a strong defense, strong free-market economic policies and strong social values. For the stool to remain upright, it must be supported by all three legs. If you snap off even one leg, the stool collapses under its own weight.

A Republican, for instance, who is conservative on social and national defense issues but liberal on fiscal issues is not a Reagan conservative. He is a quasi-conservative socialist.

A Republican who is conservative on fiscal and social issues but liberal on national defense issues is not a Reagan conservative. He is a quasi-conservative dove.

By the same token, a Republican who is conservative on fiscal and national defense issues but liberal on social issues – such as abortion, so-called gay rights or the Second Amendment – is not a Reagan conservative. He is a socio-liberal libertarian.

Put another way: A Republican who is one part William F. Buckley Jr., one part Oliver North and one part Rachel Maddow is no true conservative. He is – well, I’m not exactly sure what he is, but it ain’t pretty.

Even the Brits understand what American Conservatism is.

Per blogs.telegraph.co.uk:

Conservatism is thriving in America today because liberty, freedom and individual responsibility are at the heart of its ideology, one that rejects the foolish notion that government knows best. And its strength owes a great debt to the conviction and ideals of Ronald Reagan, who always believed that America’s best days are ahead of her, and for whom the notion of decline was unacceptable. As the Gipper famously put it, in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in 1988:

Those who underestimate the conservative movement are the same people who always underestimate the American people.

No, President Donald J. Trump is not perfect. None of us are.

However, as I write this, his Presidential Popularity Poll Numbers are highest than both Ronald Reagan’s and Barack Hussein Obama’s were at this point in their Presidencies.

There was only One Perfect Man.

However, to repeat myself, Trump is accomplishing a lot of things that make a whole lot of us Christian American Conservatives very happy.

In conclusion, I, a Christian American Conservative, am a follower of Jesus Christ and a citizen of the United States of America (by the Grace of God), who holds to traditional values and attitudes.

I pray that you, the reader, are able to glean that from my daily musings.  Because, as Matthew 6:21 tells us:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

I believe that President Trump’s heart is with the God of Abraham, Whom he is not ashamed to reference in his speeches, and with the Country he loves and the citizens whom he sworn to serve.

My hope is that, during these troubled times, your heart is held by that same God of Our Fathers.

May God bless you and yours.

Until He Comes,

Trump at G-7 to Undo Bad Deals and to Explain How “America First” Works

June 9, 2018

TOPSHOT-ITALY-G7-SUMMIT

The Washington Post, as viewed on msn.com, is very worried about the “World Order” because of the words and actions of “mean ol’ President Trump”…

When does a feud become a separation? A separation a divorce? When do arguments, sharp-tongued put-downs and perceived betrayal among allies become the collapse of the Western-dominated order that has ruled the world, under U.S. leadership, for the past seven decades?

As each day brings a new series of punches and counterpunches between President Trump and longtime U.S. partners, the question appears to be moving beyond the realm of the academic.

The most recent episode began with Friday’s Group of Seven summit in Quebec, the annual chat-fest with the United States and the world’s other self-described economic leaders, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. It followed Trump’s decision not to exempt any of them from new U.S. “national security” tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

That ruling came on the heels of nearly 18 months of clashes over climate change, trade, NATO, Iran and other issues on a list so long it is hard to remember everything on it.

“What worries me most . . . is the fact that the rules-based international order is being challenged,” European Council President Donald Tusk said as the G-7 summit got underway. What is surprising, Tusk said, is that the challenge is driven not by the “usual suspects, but by its main architect and guarantor, the U.S.”

Trump’s actions, he said, “play into the hands of those who seek a new post-West order where liberal democracy and fundamental freedoms would cease to exist.” Tusk’s usual suspects certainly include China and Russia, the latter suspended from the group after its 2014 annexation of Crimea. As Trump left Washington early Friday, he said Russia should be invited “back in” to the club.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron held a news conference in Quebec on Thursday to hail their own close relations and said they would continue, politely, to try to convince Trump that his actions are “unacceptable” and counterproductive, even for American workers.

Trump responded with a series of tweets Friday morning, saying he was headed to Quebec to “straighten out” U.S. allies. “If it doesn’t happen,” he declared, “we come out even better.”

In any case, Trump told reporters as he left the White House for Canada, eventually “we’ll all be in love again.”

Maybe.

…Trump’s attitude is often as irritating to allied leaders as are his policies, according to numerous European officials, who consistently address such issues only on the condition of anonymity to avoid making the situation worse.

Two administration officials acknowledged that Trump simply does not see allies and adversaries in the traditional way, nor any reason to couch his views in diplomatic niceties. He often describes countries that have been historically aligned with the United States, including Germany, France and Canada, as “so-called allies” who take advantage of the nation.

Trump cares very little about the traditional world order, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about what the president has said in private.

And, that is a bad thing, why?

For decades now, America has gotten the short end of the stick in trade deals involving countries who were supposed to be our friends.

Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States of America because he promised to dig us out of the economic hole which the Democrats’ fiscal mismanagement of America’s assets had put us in.

True to his word, Trump is succeeding in fulfilling his promises and now the Democrats are all terribly upset that he is making our “friends” angry at us.

So what?

If the professional politicians sitting on their duffs all these years in the Capitol Rotunda had gotten angry when these one sided trade deals were made in the first place, then President Trump would not have to tackle the problem now.

What did the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, expect to happen in the area of Foreign Trade when average Americans elected a mega-successful billionaire who had written a book titled “The Art of the Deal” as the 45th President of the United States of America?

Did they expect President Trump to just roll over and perform a Neville Chamberlain impression when negotiating trade at the G-7?

If they did, then they are more clueless than I thought that they were, and that is saying a lot.

President Trump is more than willing to negotiate trade deals with the countries represented at the G-7. However, when he was campaigning and later after he became president, he kept repeating “American First” and he meant it.

President Trump will not accept any deal that is not in the best interests of the United States of America, no matter how loudly Democrats and the leaders of those nations who claim to be our allies whine and cry about the “necessity” of America compromising and giving up things in trade deals in order to maintain the “World Order”.

President Trump’s first priority at the G-7 is to make deals that benefit America and her people.

And, that is a good thing.

Americans Approve of Trump’s Economic Policy, Think Trump Can Make Good NK Deal

June 8, 2018

day-500-600-li

“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s overall job rating is holding steady, buoyed by a record number approving of his handling of the economy. A Fox News poll released Thursday also finds that most like that he’s meeting with North Korea.

……A strong jobs report released June 1 showed the U.S. with a seasonally adjusted 3.8 percent unemployment rate. The president seems to get some credit for that. His handling of the economy brings his most positive job ratings, as a record 52 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove.

There was a bump in economic optimism when Trump first took office: the number feeling optimistic went from 49 percent (January 2016) to 66 percent (January 2017). Now, that number sits at 59 percent. Since his inauguration, optimism is up 19 percentage points among Republicans, down 31 points among Democrats, and holding steady among independents.

Optimism is increasing on North Korea, as more voters now think it could be convinced to give up its nuclear weapons. Twenty-eight percent feel that way, up 12 points from 16 percent three months ago (March 2018). Still, a majority, 60 percent, says North Korea won’t let go of its nukes.

By a narrow margin, voters think war with North Korea is less likely than it was two years ago (33 percent less likely, 28 percent more likely, 35 percent the same), and most approve of the president meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un (66-24 percent).

More expect Trump (40 percent) than Kim (30 percent) to negotiate the “better deal.”

“Americans have mixed feelings on North Korea. They want the U.S. to negotiate with Kim Jong Un even though they doubt the North Koreans would ever concede on the main sticking point between our countries: nuclear weapons,” says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson.

“They also seem to think President Trump might be able to get a good deal, even though no one has a clue as to what that deal might entail.”

…The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,001 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from June 3-6, 2018. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

Trump has delivered what he promised: a stronger economy and more jobs.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Party, which is being run by the Far Left, continues to play.

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Trump is in the process of doing, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

But, I digress…

Make no mistake, granting amnesty to millions of unskilled, underage illegal aliens would have done and still would do nothing for the health of our economy.

This action would simply provide future voters for the Democrat Party, which is now, as I wrote earlier, firmly in the control of the Far Left.

A popular Liberal Defense that was going around during Obama’s Presidency was the claim that President Ronald Reagan actually had a bigger Federal Government than Obama.

The funny part is: It’s true.

It was larger because President Reagan, through his sound Economic Policy, actually increased tax revenues.

American Production rose, therefore, TAX REVENUES INCREASED.

Yes, “Trickle-Down Economics”, “trickled up”, allowing for a well-funded, strong American Military and Administration.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy. American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

Now, as far as President Trump’s success in his dealings with “Little Rocket Man” and North Korea, what did the Democrats expect would happen when average Americans elected an American Businessman who had written a book titled “The Art of the Deal”?

President Trump is also a great judge of talent. His selection of Mike Pompeo as the new Secretary of State was brilliant.

Through hard work and intuitive, decisive leadership, The Trump Administration is on the verge of making history in regards to a possible denuclearization of North Korea, something that was previously thought to be impossible to accomplish.

It would have been, except Americas did not elect another politician.

Americans elected a Citizen Statesman with Real World Experience who is not afraid to remind those whom he is negotiating with that he has the enormous firepower of the United States Armed Forces to back him up in Foreign Policy Negotiations, as the world saw when Kim Jong Un decided to come back to the negotiating table.

President Trump is succeeding as President because of his ability to focus on the challenges he faces and to come up with innovative, common-sense solutions.

His popularity continues to rise dues to average Americans’ appreciation of a President who puts America first.

And as Trump continues on his mission to Make American Great Again, as the Democrats have to contribute is hate and divisiveness.

And, that is not an election-winning Party Platform to run on.

Until He Comes,
