Objects May Appear Larger

Ant MagfdWhen initially taking office, most U.S. Presidents historically receive what has been referred to as a honeymoon period that usually lasts at least a couple of months.  In President Trump’s case, it was more like “wham, bam, thank you man” … no honeymoon, not even foreplay, just a pure, raw bumping of uglies right from the start!

The Democrats not only have a problem accepting their defeat in November, they can’t even admit to themselves the reasons they lost.  Instead of channelling their energies into rebuilding their decimated party, they have focused on discrediting the new president and trying to block his administration from achieving the goals for which the voters gave him a mandate … even bringing down The President himself, if possible.  So far, with help from a compliant media, and a few extremely wealthy donors on the left, progressive Democrats have been able to make a very small minority look as though they represent some kind of majority.  It’s sort of like looking at an ant with a magnifying glass, and equally as deceptive.

What they seem to ignore with their violent and vocal onslaughts is that, for more than a year, thousands of people turned out for Trump rallies in record numbers — braving heat, sleet, snow, verbal abuse and sometimes even physical attacks — just to be a part of his historic campaign.  With overwhelming support they made him their candidate, then in November, with an electoral landslide, made him our President!

President Trump has, in a matter of weeks, accomplished more for America and fulfilled more campaign promises than most presidents in six months … and in the case of his predecessor, more than was achieved in EIGHT years!  Is there any reason to believe, as progressive Democrats and their minions would have you believe, that all those supporters are suddenly dissatisfied and changing their minds about their presidential selection?  Many are upset with a congress that is getting cold feet about immigration restrictions, repealing the Unaffordable Care Act and implementing tax reform … furious with Democrat hacks who are engaged in outright obstruction, trying to prevent an historically smooth transition of power and the rightful formation of a new government. As for all the noise, what we mostly hear are bought and paid for agitators.   Make no mistake, voting Americans are more solidly behind our President than ever.

It’s really pretty simple:  Those on the left didn’t take Mr. Trump seriously.  They painted him as some sort of buffoon and created a false caricature that they could hold up to the public … then they fell for it themselves!  They didn’t think he could win, didn’t listen to what he was saying, didn’t understand the changes the American people were demanding, and perceived that THEY were the mainstream  of thought, the center of the universe.  Now that President Trump is in the Oval Office and keeping his word, they are SURPRISED to see what is happening … now they are imploding, because the progressive left still has nothing new to offer, nothing but the same old anarchy and national decline.  Now We The People want more and it’s a movement much bigger than even President Trump himself, and he acknowledges that reality!

The Newz-z-z-z

SigningI can’t imagine what the Democrat networks were saying, because watching even FOX today was like watching an old Abbot and Costello flick. I don’t know why I even bother anymore except it’s great entertainment, especially with the part time amateurs that show up on the weekend. They have everything backasswards and are as clueless about President Trump, and what’s coming their way, as they are about the amount of gravitational pull on Jupiter.

At one point when I stopped laughing and picked myself up off the floor, I heard one character actually said that Mr. Trump, and I quote, “Has to learn to become a political leader” since he comes from a non-political background. The same dull witted mook then offered that “Trump is moving too fast and has to slow down” because politicians aren’t used to moving at this kind of pace. Apparently he sees getting things done as a “Haphazard governing style.” This Sunday wonder has to be a ‘swamp guy‘ and he’d better be careful not to trip over the drain cork.

For the record, the so-called resistance is going to continue as long as the money financing it holds out … and, sorry, but I’m afraid this is what fixing a broken country looks like. Democrats are going to have to get used to the idea that they lost “big league” and have no power. Republicans need to get rid of their cold feet and realize that time has come to actually deliver on the campaign promises they made. EVERYONE is going to have to adjust to President Trump’s do it bigger, better, faster, and under budget mode of operation … because it isn’t going to happen any other way!

Bringing There to Here

Immigrants-EllisI’m really getting tired of hearing how we are a nation built by immigrants.  Anyone who took American History 101 knows that … unless they were educated in the past quarter century or so while it was being rewritten.  The difference between those original immigrants and today’s border-jumpers or Middle-Eastern invaders is that they came here legally, with a desire to assimilate into our culture, to follow our Constitution, contribute to our country and become Americans … not to change anything, blow it up or drain the system of its wealth.  One of my favorite political commentators likes to say, “You can’t bring there to here without changing here to there.”

The immigrants who built America were sponsored and expected to work.  They were admitted under quotas, with intense screening for health, nationality, political views, personal intent, skills and, yes, religion.  Those not meeting our criteria were sent back to their countries of origin.  They arrived here over a great many decades, not in a stampede within a few months or a few years, learned our language, abided by our laws and our customs, while [secondarily] preserving their own heritage.  They were admitted because of need or desire, not for political purposes or to satisfy an agenda.

No one has the RIGHT to come into America.  It is a privilege that we extend to those deserving of it and there are specific procedures to be followed in order to get here and to stay here.  Contrary to what many on the left or bought and paid for anarchist crowds — or illegal aliens making unwarranted demands while burning our flag — would have you believe, we are a compassionate nation but a nation of laws.  This is who we are, who we have always been, and the broad diversity of talent woven into a single fabric is what has made America exceptional, what has made America great!

Give Me Your Tired, Hungry and Loyal

screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-8-01-14-pmWouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?  I didn’t know about this act until a friend sent me the link in an eMail, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.  Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington D.C. do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).  The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.  Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our  President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.  Many took up the cry of, “We’re better than that!”  Really?

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.  Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary,  suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

Take a wild guess who last used this process?  Hint:  It’s a Democrat!  Surprise again …  it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States!  Actually Carter did even more.   He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama Administration?  By the way, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”  Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, all Muslims should be refused immigration to America!

Media Fantasy

media-childrenAt this point, I’m getting a YUUGE kick out of watching the media rush from one end of the planet to another trying to keep up with President-Elect Trump and bellyaching about having to do it! After treating him like something you’d scrape off your shoe for more than a year, do they really expect some kind of consideration? In fact, these pitiful sots are still at it, tossing everything at him but the upstairs commode! What do they think he is, a politician or something?

Even funnier is the campaign in chaos routine. I wish someone would inform the press and pundits that the campaign is over and what they are witnessing is the formation of a new, ‘action-packed’ government unlike the typical old-boy Washington model. This one will work in practice and serve The People … not the lobbyists, big buck contributors, or the politicos’ own self-interest.

As for folks leaving his organization, bear in mind the new President is very particular in his hiring practices and exacting in his expectations for performance. No less will be demanded of those in his new administration than those in current Trump corporate entities, where only the best of the best are retained!

Back To The Future?

foundersTuesday’s election is more than choosing between two people, it’s choosing between two different ways of life for ourselves, our children, and their children. Not only will the outcome affect the Supreme Court but thousands of other appointed judgeships from sea to shining sea. Do we want to be a soft dictatorship, with few rights, high taxes, limited opportunity and a bloated government making decisions for us and running our everyday lives … or a free constitutional republic, with individual liberty, a small government, keeping more of what we earn and the right to make our own decisions about how and where we live and who we are? Clinton’s appointments will tilt our courts to the left and produce the former; Trump’s appointment of Conservative judges assures the latter.
 
Hillary Clinton’s global society, with no borders and open trade will keep us on the same path of stagnation and chaos we see in the failing nations of Europe and create a wholly dependent society. Donald Trump’s vision for change will return us to the kind of personal opportunity and prosperous America our founding fathers envisioned when they designed a free and independent nation, unique in the history of mankind … a kind of back to the future. This election is NOT ABOUT OBAMA’S LEGACY, it’s about OURS!

Not Trump

14639872_1432831103398041_3804404081228099233_nFunny thing about all the Democrat attempts at condemning Donald Trump: He never raised our taxes, cost American lives, voted for a war, presided over a surrender, sponsored a wasteful stimulus, got our national credit rating lowered, embraced our enemies, insulted our allies, infringed our free speech, religious liberty or 2nd Amendment rights.

He never compromised national security, sold stockpiles of American uranium to an adversary, peddled influence, negotiated a worthless nuclear deal, paid terrorists ransom for hostages, destroyed our healthcare system, disrespected police, gutted our military, insulted our veterans, paid thugs to riot in our streets, supported anarchist groups or compromised our national sovereignty.

He never did any of those things, never had the power to, yet Mr. Trump’s detractors say he is not qualified to be president. Really?

Worth Another Look

puzzlethemissingpiece-postI keep hearing about “experience” being such an important factor in the election. First of all, nobody entering the presidency has experience … not unless they’ve done it before and, with a two term limit, they haven’t. Secondly, while Donald Trump’s experience built a large, successful business empire, Hillary’s foreign relations experience gave rise to most of the problems we have with The Middle East and Russia. She, also, clearly understands very little about how business or economics work in the private sector. Experience can be valuable all right, but only if it’s GOOD experience!

So far, as voters, we have talked out of both sides of our mouths, much like the politicians we keep electing … one standard for discussion and another when we actually cast our ballots. We keep saying we want an outsider, someone with the experience to fix the economy and get America growing again … but in the previous two elections we have opted for a “business as usual” politician and rejected the outsider, ostensibly because of a lack of “experience” in government.  Really?  So into the porcelain fixture we go, yet again, with one hand on the flusher and the other clutching our noses!  Maybe it’s time we began voting with our heads instead of our fears about the “change” we say we want.

Trump is being measured against the standards of a politician.  It’s the wrong standard … like measuring a football field with a stick graduated in meters instead of yards.  You’re going to come up short!  What if you asked Hillary, or any other politician to build a skyscraper or operate a casino, how do you suppose they would do?  Off Track Betting in New York should give you some idea: They were probably the first legal gambling operation on earth to go broke!  Isn’t it about time we started using an independent-outsider stick to measure The Donald’s worth rather than the insider stick graduated with a ‘more-of-the-same’ scale?  Trump has the proven gift of surrounding himself with exactly the right people to do the job and tolerates no incompetence.  Hillary’s choices, on the other hand, and how they have advised her speak for themselves. If we’re seeing “the high road” from the Democrats, with their daily diatribe of personal accusations instead of offering substantive programs, I’d hate to see what “the low road” looks like!

America is broken. We need jobs, economic stability and growth. We also need law and order and safety at home, respect from our allies and fear from our enemies abroad. We need a leader who is responsible to us, not to special interests and secret global arrangements. We need someone with experience in areas that serve The People and the nation, as opposed to the inner-workings of a Washington elite. Donald Trump meets those criteria. I remember Herman Cain’s answer in 2012 when asked about his knowledge of how government works in Washington and he replied, “It doesn’t.” That hasn’t changed and our present state of chaos and corruption testifies to it. America needs to be fixed.  If you had a pipe that was about to burst, do you suppose you would call a politician or might a plumber make more sense?  Think.

Quit While You’re Ahead?

crazy-hillary-1Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton is being advised to skip the last presidential debate.  It would be the final act of panic in her attempt to place the crowning jewel in her plastic tiara!  Maybe Hillary discovered during the second debate that Donald Trump is no pushover and, without a boatload of drugs to control her debilitating medical conditions, she wouldn’t last twenty minutes on her feet.  In fact, according to one Wikileaks eMail, she has been having to cling to a podium to remain vertical since at least 2009!

Typical of the Clinton politics of personal destruction, she plunged the campaign straight into the gutter, and suddenly it’s backfiring. The media has been covering for her up to now by practically ignoring the many devastating Wikileaks revelations, which she can’t afford to have ‘The Donald’ parade in front of a national audience before the election.   Then there are her phony [Bill-like] groping accusations toward him which are crumbling one-by-one and the withering firepower of Trump himself.  Add to this his call for drug testing, her inability to win on the issues, and Hillary, along with her lame excuses, is toddling toward the nearest safe space!

If she bails out, Clinton will clearly be trying to avoid confrontation with a more conservative moderator like Chris Wallace and having to respond to questions she dare not address in front of the public. If she is not adequately medicated and has to face ninety minutes of the YUUGE number of arrows Mr. Trump now has in his quiver, which could easily pierce her tissue of lies, deceit, and disdain for a wide segment of the American people, her chances of ruling our nation from the White House could finally be ended once and for all!

A Slip Of The Lip

 

Okay, so Donald Trump has said some pretty cringe worthy things. I want to meet the person who hasn’t … the ‘appropriately shocked’ Hillary Clinton is legendary for her own language, whether attacking her husband, addressing members of the military or deriding her Secret Service detail. Any woman who doesn’t think her own special heart-throb hasn’t engaged in this kind of conversation either still believes you find babies under cabbage leaves or is spending her life with some character who suffers from low testosterone, exfoliates his chest hairs and spends half his life looking for a ‘safe space’. It’s not disrespect. It’s guys! We think with our glands!

There is a YUUGE difference between talk and action. Trump has talked. He has not committed predatory acts of abuse like Bill Clinton or tried to cover them up by destroying the lives of victims like Hillary. He has also never raised our taxes, voted for a war, cost American lives, lied to families of the fallen, mishandled national security information, sold political influence to our adversaries, transferred twenty percent of American uranium deposits to the Russians or negotiated a disastrous Iranian agreement that virtually guarantees them nuclear capability. Neither has Trump plunged The Middle East into turmoil, helped give birth to the likes of ISIS, brushed aside the fact we are at war, or refused to even say the name of our enemy … Radical Islamic Terrorism.

Trump does not want open trade and open borders, is not in favor of a global society, does not want to turn American sovereignty over to the United Nations, will not import 500% more foreign invaders, will not ignore the U.S. Constitution, bypass Congress, take our 2nd Amendment rights away by executive order or curtail free speech.

What he will do is appoint Conservative judges to the Supreme Court and thousands of judgeships across the country, use his vast business experience to restore jobs and our economy, renew respect for our nation in the world, rebuild our infrastructure, restore our inner cities, put a halt to the Judeo-Christian erosion that has been occurring over the past several years, improve our educational and healthcare systems, restore law and order, and put an end to the epidemic of political correctness that has been eroding freedoms in America. Trump has a perspective for our nation above self, and will institute programs that will provide opportunity, keep us safe, keep us free and make America great again! Hillary does not.

It’s really pretty simple. Candidates aside, on November 8th we will vote either to be a nation of free individuals, making our own choices, responsible for our own lives … or a global collective, governed by a ruling class, dependent upon their authority to make our choices and dictate every aspect of our lives.

Are Donald Trump’s remarks of more than a decade ago okay? No. Are they unusual, particularly for a guy, but let’s not leave out the ladies? No … it’s everyday locker room banter. In fact, I have a feeling those acting most horrified are the ones with the most skeletons in the biggest closets! On the other hand, what a terrific opportunity for insiders dragged kicking and screaming to support an outsider in the first place, to finally bail out … just look who is running fastest for the hills leaving their candidate twisting in the wind.

I am reminded of a Woody Allen statement, “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.” If Americans are willing to let the most important election of our lifetime turn on an occasional casual comment, by a patriotic truth teller who doesn’t politically filter every utterance … thus allowing the coronation of a woman who says she needs one public persona and one private; a woman whose criminal actions have long since blurred the line between right and wrong, honesty and falsehood … then I’m ready to turn in my membership card and sit in a dark room with my tattered flag, because America has already slipped into the abyss.
