It is Going to be a Great New Year, except for the Left!

So many good things are happening in America, but the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) are obsessed with stopping it from happening, or outright denying it is happening. Here are a few recent examples:

  • ABC published an article about President Trump being the first President in years that did not visit troops during the holidays, as he and the First Lady were landing in Iraq! What did the MSM do then? They did not retract the article but instead took issue with how many days he was in office before he made the historic visit. They also took to twitter to mock the First Lady’s choice of foot wear (again). She was wearing Timberland boots in a war zone!
  • The stock market had the highest one-day gain in history on December 26, 2018, but the MSM is ignoring this and continuing to talk about the days it lost points up to Christmas eve.
  • The Left, including Obama, Schumer, and Pelosi publicly advocated for a secure border, including a fence for years, until Donald Trump was elected. Now the Left insist that a “wall is immoral” and the “American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to a wall”. Neither of these proclamations is remotely true! Sometimes I wonder if the Left does not know that years of video and audio tape exist of what they said and did in the past?
  • When Obama was in the White House ISIS grew so fast and became so powerful they were able to create their own country. President Trump, as Commander in Chief gave our military what they needed to finally defeat ISIS. Then he gave the order to the top commanders to devise a plan to get all our troops out of Syria. When the deadline came and went without his orders being carried out he announced that we were no longer needed in Syria and were pulling our remaining forces out. Our troops are being replaced by a much larger force of Turkish trained Syrian fighters with a pledge from the President of Turkey to finish off any remaining ISIS cells in that part of the world. Syrians cleaning up what is left of ISIS in Syria with the support of Turkey. How can that not be a good thing? Now the Left suddenly hates the idea that President Trump is putting America first and bringing our troops home! Some even ridiculed his speech where he told our troops, “we are going to have to stop being the policemen of the world”. Securing our own borders instead of another country’s and strengthening our own economy instead of another country’s? How can this suddenly be a bad thing?
  • Yahoo View published an article claiming that FOX NEWS host like Sean Hannity were losing viewers as a result of their constant support for President Trump. In the article they did acknowledge that Hannity was still the number one rated show but made a point that his numbers were off somewhat in December. If you took the article title at face value instead of looking at the numbers you would probably believe the title was true. They also did not mention how strong the FOX line up is in every afternoon and evening time slot, especially from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.   
  • Retiring Senator Bob Corker blasted President Trump on twitter over the partial government shut down. He actually posted “alert the day care staff“ because President Trump is insisting on funds for a border wall! This RINO is “retiring”, which means that he was so anti-Trump during the 2016 campaign that he could not possibly get re-elected in Tennessee.
  • One of the ”talking heads” on CNN had a banner headline that said Trump was a “Failure as America’s CEO”? Apparently this was based solely on the partial government shut down?
  • The Federal Reserve Bank board dictates what the prime interest rate is in America. This power is supposed to be used to maintain a stable American business climate. Raising or lowering the prime borrowing rate banks must pay as they borrow funds from the Federal Reserve bank to maintain their daily cash flow needs affects the rates the banks charge their customers, so it affects every business transaction in America in some way. The Federal Reserve Bank board is supposed to be non-political. However, they only raised rates one time during Obama’s eight years in office. But they have raised rates constantly during President Trumps first two years in office. Every time they raise rates it slows down business expansion in America because it increases the cost of business expansion. It also increases the cost of all consumer credit, which reduces the amount of money consumers have to spend on other things. The Fed Chairman’s reasons for the rapid and constant rate increases is that they are preventing the economy from “overheating” and “working to control inflation”. Somehow that sounds to me like they think that things are going “too well” in America now?

At the risk of being redundant I am going to repeat something I said in my article last week. It is the only way I know to explain the Left being totally out of touch with reality on everything. Every time I see or hear something from the Left, I can close my eyes and clearly hear them say, “or you going to believe me or your lying eyes”?

It is Great to be an American, Except for the Left!

It is a Great Time to be an American, Except for the Left!

Every where I go I still see many great things happening in America. Shopping, new construction, people saying Merry Christmas. Yet everyone on the Left (Democrats, the MSM and RINO Republicans) are getting angrier and more irrational by the day? Every time I hear something from the Left I am reminded of the saying, “are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?”. Here are some examples of how angry and irrational the Left is and the obvious double standard of justice we have in the Washington Cesspool:

  • Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe program referred to Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo as “Trump’s b… boy” on the air! She did apologize for the disgusting crude remark on the air the next day, but I suspect it was not by choice. Her remark was so crude that it fell below the MSM’s usual anti-Trump hatred. Imagine if someone on FOX made a remark like that!
  • Chris Matthews, another MSNBC host angrily said on air that “Trump will resign in the next few weeks”.
  • Mueller has now spent over $30 million on the alleged Russia collusion special council investigation and is still going forward. This is in spite of the fact that there has not been a single shred of evidence discovered that proves there was any Russia campaign collusion, except by the Democrats. This is clearly “an investigation in search of a crime”, which is blatantly illegal and un-Constitutional.
  • The Steele Dossier, which is the basis for the Mueller special council investigation, was initiated by the Clinton campaign and paid for by the Clinton campaign, the DNC and OUR FBI!
  • Every aspect of the Steele Dossier has been totally debunked by a wide variety of credible people. For example, the dossier claims that Trump’s former lawyer, Cohen went to Russia to arrange the collusion. There is absolutely no evidence that Cohen went to Russia.
  • The Steele Dossier was used to launch the Trump Russia collusion special council investigation while Comey was Director of the FBI. It was also used to get illegal FISA warrants to spy on Americans by the Obama Administration.
  • The FBI used search warrants to stage predawn raids on various Trump campaign staff where they seized documents and took people away in handcuffs. But not a single Democrat has been subjected to this level of “investigation”. Just compare it to Hillary’s “e-mailgate non-investigation”!
  • After each of Jim Comey’s recent two days of testimony before a congressional committee he held an impromptu press conference. What he said at these press conferences and his demeanor reminded me of a petulant spoiled brat who did not get what he wanted. According to the transcripts of his testimony, and according to people in the hearing, he repeatedly lied under oath. No one has even mentioned that he would be charged with these crimes. Cohen and Flynn have both been charged with the same crimes and forced to plead guilty!
  • After his second day of testimony Comey’s behavior and comments were even more petulant than they were at his previous press conference. He loudly complained that he was repeatedly asked to explain his handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation versus his desire to talk about the Russia campaign collusion. Note: in recent days new evidence has been made public about how deeply he was involved in “fixing” the Clinton investigation. According to the new evidence he was involved in the “cover up” to the point of breaking a number of laws and illegally colluding with the Clinton campaign to assure that she won the election. In fact he was an integral part of the top FBI staff that developed the “insurance policy” that was intended to assure that Trump did not win the election.
  • John Pedosta, Clinton’s campaign chair and his brother Anthony had an international consulting firm that took in millions of dollars, without being in compliance with all the federal regulations required to represent foreign entities. The company was immediately shut down when Clinton lost the election. This was obviously part of the vast Clinton “pay to play” network. But, so far, the MSM and FBI have failed to acknowledge any of this. Cohen and Flynn were both charged with violating the same laws that the Podesta brothers violated and then they were forced to plead guilty.
  • The MSM posted the results of a “national poll” that said that “now the majority of Americans believe that America is in worse shape economically than it was during the Obama Administration”. Every measure of our current economy indicates that this is not based on any facts.

Based on everything I see and hear (other than from the Left) I still believe that it is a great time to be an American! President Trump, his staff and supporters will prevail!

Merry Christmas!

There is so Much Good Happening in America, and the Left Hates it!

As I have written in the past, everywhere I go I see GOOD things happening. Large commercial developments, new homes being built, people shopping and Help Wanted signs.

An unemployment rate of 3.7% confirms that GOOD things are happening all over America. Many economists consider a 5% unemployment rate as being an economy that is at full employment. When I questioned this 5% theory in an economics class in college the professor explained that there will always be some people who are unemployed for a variety of reasons. As we discussed this further it then made sense to me.

When you consider that we have a 3.7% unemployment rate with a Labor Participation Rate at one of the highest points in history this is even more remarkable. Labor Force Participation Rate definition: the percentage of the population that is of working age (16) and are also members of the work force. If you look at unemployment rate charts for the last ten years you will see that they indicate that the rate went up quickly during Obama’s first years in office (he blamed it on Bush 43). During this time the Democrats also had a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. And then the unemployment rate began to fall every month. One month when there were only 13,000 new jobs reported the Obama Administration declared that the unemployment rate dropped a tenth of a point to 4.7 percent. This is statistically impossible! When I saw this, I did some research and discovered that the Obama Administration was “manipulating” the number of people that they counted as being part of the workforce! They significantly reduced the number of weeks that anyone who became unemployed was eligible for unemployment benefits, and then stopped counting them as being part of the workforce when they were not drawing unemployment benefit checks.

While his administration was manipulating the numbers, Obama was giving speeches where he said things like, “those jobs are never coming back”, “we cannot drill our way out of high gas prices” and “we cannot drill our way to energy independence”. Every time I saw this in the news I wondered why he was giving speeches that directly contradicted the manipulated unemployment rate numbers his administration was publishing? Each time I thought about this the only conclusion I could come to was that the Left does not care about anything but their own agenda, and they believe that the rest of us are too stupid or uninformed to know any better!

The Trump Administration is not manipulating the numbers. The Labor Force Participation Rate and the unemployment rate prove that many GOOD things are happening in America.

The Left (Democrats, MSM and RINO Republicans) hate President Trump so badly that they will say and do anything to hurt America just to prevent him from “getting a WIN” on anything. They believe that if he gets a “WIN on anything” it will be a major loss for them and their agenda. The current “continuing” Federal budget crisis is a perfect example of the Left’s hatred for every Conservative’s idea to better America. Now this all centers around President Trump’s border wall demands. In the past many of the Left’s prominent members including, Obama, Pelosi, Schumer and Hillary gave public speeches about the need for a secure border, including a wall. In the past many of them, including Schumer supported budget amendments with funding for a wall. Now that we have an undeniable illegal immigrant crisis at our southern border the Left is angrily declaring we do not have a crisis at our southern border, and even saying things like “a wall is immoral”. This ridiculous “RESIST everything Trump at any cost” mindset came to a head in the oval office this week, 12/11/ 2018 in front of the entire White House Press Corp. and their TV cameras! Pelosi and Schumer got so visibly upset because they were not getting the response from President Trump they wanted, they demanded that the press be ordered out the room. President Trump refused and reminded them that he was “being completely transparent with the American people”. I have seen many things in my long and full life, but this was truly epic! I love seeing the Left saying and doing things like this in front of the nation’s TV cameras! 

Many GOOD things are happening in America and the Left (Democrats, MSM and RINO Republicans) really hate it!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

There is So Much Good Happening in America! It is Going to be a Great Christmas Season!

As I have written recently, everywhere I go around the state I see major construction projects happening. Yesterday I took a friend that lives south of Atlanta for a medical procedure that required sedation. As I drove south on state highway 42 out of McDonough, Ga. I was amazed at how much major construction I saw. One large area being cleared had a sign posted next to the highway announcing that the development was going to be over one million square feet of available commercial space (it is speculative!). Across the road from that development another huge building was being built that appeared to be one of the largest commercial warehouse and distribution centers I have ever seen. It was so long that I could not count the loading dock doors on the side facing the road. In addition to these two large commercial developments there were several other properties being developed in that area and one of the largest grading and clearing contractors in the southeastern U.S. was clearing another huge tract of land. There was also a new four lane road being paved into another large tract of uncleared land. Several of the larger developments had set up cement manufacturing plants on the property and had a fleet of cement trucks and a fleet of tandem axle dump trucks hauling the raw materials to the cement plant (only a really big project could justify that expense!). As I looked at all this commercial development, I asked myself where are all these companies going to find employees to fill all these jobs? With the U.S. already being above what most economist consider to be “full employment”, with one of the highest “labor participation rates” in America’s history, this is going to be an issue, but what a great problem for America to be dealing with!

On the way back home, I got off I-75 at Griffin, Ga. and came back through Newnan, Ga. Along the way I noticed a lot of new construction, including new custom-built homes on large tracts of land. Just south of Newnan a large tract of land that was a farm in the past was being cleared. A sign posted next to the highway indicated the area being developed was 213 acres. The highway through that area was being widened to become a four lane and a new street going into the development was being constructed complete with new commercial specification curbs and street gutters being poured.

This morning I went back to my local Home Depot to return some materials that I did not actually need on a project I am working on for a friend. At 10:00 A.M. on a really cold Thursday morning the parking lot was almost full again, with most of the vehicles being some sort of commercial vehicle, all loaded or being loaded with construction or landscape materials. As I was loading the materials off my trailer and onto a lumber cart a kind gentleman walking by stopped and asked if I needed any help! What a great Christmas season we are having!

I have been seeing positive things like this everywhere I went for many months now. This is why almost every federal and state agency, that reports honestly, is reporting that consumer confidence in America is at an all-time high as we approach the 2nd anniversary of President Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of America!

However, if you listen to the “Left” (Democrats, MSM and RINO Republicans) Trump is rapidly destroying America, at home and abroad. These people are so desperate to destroy the Trump presidency (and save their own power) that nothing is too low for them to say or do. As I watch and listen to them, I actually think that some of what they are saying and doing to hurt America should qualify as TREASON! They literally refuse to believe that Trump is still our President and are becoming more “unhinged” by the day as we approach the beginning of President Trump’s 3rd year in office. Some of the RINOs have even announced that they are considering running against President Trump in the 2020 Republican primary!

We cannot let the “haters” win! We must stay positive and focus on all the good things that are happening in America!

Merry Christmas to everyone!
