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!

Happy Holidays!

In spite of what the media is saying it is great to be an American and to live in America this holiday season! Everywhere I go I see good things happening and everyone I talk to tells me that they are doing better now financially than they have for many years:

  • I see huge new retail, manufacturing and distribution centers being built and large tracts of timber land being cleared for more construction, and some of these are huge speculative developments.
  • I have friends that own businesses who all tell me that their only problem now is having enough employees to handle the work that is available to them.
  • Recently I noticed that an entire block of an older part of a neighboring town had been leveled to build new commercial businesses.
  • In the area where I live two different older, but well-maintained homes were sold and then leveled so larger new homes could be built (and I live in a somewhat rural area of my county).
  • I see “Help Wanted” and “Now Hiring” signs everywhere I go and on practically every commercial vehicle.
  • Two different tracts of land in my county that had been zoned agricultural since the county started zoning in 1970 are being rezoned to residential, so new homes can be built on them.
  • Tracts of land that were being developed for new homes and an apartment complex in my county were abandoned when the Clinton Administration caused the housing market and U.S. economy to collapse. They sat idle all these years but have now been reopened and are being developed.
  • There is new commercial development on all four sides of the city that is five miles West of my home, and around the city that is nine miles North of my home.

As I see all the good things that are happening in America this holiday season, I find myself wondering how there could be so much hatred for America from the Left and the media?

Based on my observations of what I can clearly see versus what I hear, it looks like the vast majority of the media in America, broadcast, print and the internet, is “cheer leading” for the Left’s efforts to fulfill Obama’s dream of “fundamentally changing America”. Some of the media’s recent negative “reporting” (I use the term loosely here) was that:

  • Working class Americans are having a harder time making ends meet now than in previous years.
  • The job market in America is the worst it has been since 2010.
  • Trump’s tax cuts were only helping the rich and corporations.
  • In a published interview Laura Ingraham’s estranged brother said that she was “an angry monster”. Laura is a very successful Conservative writer and commentator. She is also a single mom with FOUR ADOPTED CHILDREN.
  • Rich people do not give anyone jobs, poor people create jobs by spending every dollar they get, while the rich get richer.
  • Many people on the Left, including in the media are still insisting that “Trump is a declared racist” because he publicly stated that he is a “Nationalist”. They refuse to acknowledge the definition of a “Nationalist”. Which means putting your country first! Being a declared “Nationalist” has absolutely nothing to do with being a racist. A “Nationalist” is a person who loves his country while a racist is a person who selectively hates!

As I thought about the good things that are happening in America, I made a conscious decision to focus on the holidays and do everything I can to make the holidays as positive as I can for everyone that I come in contact with. And to continue to do what I can to make people aware of how much opportunity there is in America now for people to achieve their dreams. That is why so many people from so many other countries want to come to America. We cannot let the “America haters” win!

The Left Cannot Wait Until the New Congress is Sworn In on the 5th of January to Make Fools of Themselves

Thanks to the Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM America is in a growing state of chaos ten days after the mid-term elections were supposed to be over!

It has been ten days since the mid-term election polls closed and we still have undecided federal and state elections, with numerous deadlines being missed and many FEDERAL AND STATE LAWS BEING OPENLY VIOLATED! In a number of these elections the loser does not have a valid path to victory, but they refuse to concede and continue to have lawyers pile up lawsuit after lawsuit trying to change the election results. We also had elections, like Arizona where the Conservative candidate had a comfortable lead when the polls closed but days later the hard-Left candidate was declared the winner by a comfortable margin. It is interesting to me that in every one of the contested elections the majority of the ballots that were “found” were Democrat! Some ballots are still being “found”!

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are in a verbal battle over who will be “Speaker of the House”.

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are running in every direction to get in front of TV cameras to talk about what they are going to do in their new role as the majority party in the House of Representatives.

The Democrats in the Senate are running in every direction to get in front of TV cameras to talk about what they are going to do as they work with the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives to “defeat everything Trump”. The Democrats in the Senate seem to have forgotten that the Senate is known as the “upper chamber” for a reason. The Senate can override practically everything the House may try to do, like trying to impeach the President or Judge Kavanaugh.

RINO Republican Jeff Flake, who is “retiring”, joined with a Senate Democrat to hold a press conference to announce that he will join with the Democrats to block every judge that is waiting on Senate approval unless Congress passes a bill to “protect” Mueller from President Trump. This is beyond comprehension! Flake is “retiring” because it was obvious to everyone that it was doubtful that he could get re-elected because of his anti-Trump activity during the 2016 elections.

RINO Republican Jeff Flake is also getting in front of every TV camera he can find to denigrate the President’s decision to send troops to help the Border Patrol secure our southern border. He is using some of the Democrat’s and MSM’s favorite terms like calling it a “stunt” that is “preventing those troops from spending the holidays with their families” and saying the caravans are not a “threat”. Note to Flake: One part of one caravan is already in Tijuana Mexico trying to get into California to take advantage of the states pro-immigrant policies. If they succeed it will be like the “opening of the flood gates” on a large damn that will rush in the tens of thousands of people in the additional caravans following the illegals already at our border.

Representative Adam Schiff is getting in front of every TV camera he can find to talk about all the subpoenas the Democrats are going to issue to “investigate everything Trump”. The phrase that is being used to describe this plan by the MSM is, “the Democrats are loading their subpoena cannon”.

Representative Maxine Waters, who does not live in her district, made a public statement that as Chairperson of the House Financial Services Committee, “the days of being easy on banks are over” (whatever that means?). Does she want to recreate the housing market crash that Bill Clinton created by forcing banks to make loans to people who were not eligible for them and could not pay them back? This is the Congress Woman who illegally funneled bank bail-out funds to a minority owned bank in California that she and her husband owned stock in and her husband was a member of the bank’s Board of Directors. Even though what she did was blatantly illegal the Congressional Ethics committee declined to censor her in any way. Note: The Congressional ethics Committee has an equal number of Democrat and Republican members virtually assuring that no one in Congress will be censored for anything. It was designed to protect all members of Congress, not to assure that they are ethical.

Practically everyone in the MSM loudly and happily talked about how “bitter and withdrawn Trump is over losing the House majority”. While they were doing this President Trump was holding a White House press conference announcing his support for bi-partisan legislation that would enact prison reform and criminal sentencing reform to correct some of the serious problems created in our justice system by Bill Clinton’s “three strikes and you are out” legislation. This bill will do a lot to reduce the number of people in our prison system and help many people who do go to jail become productive members of our communities when they get out of jail. President Trump was surrounded at the press conference by bi-partisan members of Congress and representatives of influential law enforcement and prison staff organizations. This bill has passed the House with bi-partisan support and President Trump promised to sign it when the Senate passes it and sends it to his desk.

Unfortunately, these examples are just a small sample of how obsessed the Left is with their plans to destroy the Trump Presidency (RESIST and OBSTRUCT) and make America be part of their dream of a “One World Order”. As I wrote last week, it is going to be really interesting to watch the “news” from now until the November 2020 elections!

The Democrat’s and MSM’s Irrational Behavior is Becoming More Extreme Every Day!

Every day that we get closer to the November 6 mid-term elections the Left’s behavior becomes more extreme, anti-American and desperate. This tells me that they are lying about their supposed “blue wave”. Here are some recent examples:

  • MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brezezinski talked about using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office. She said, “at some point, you are working for a president who is not fit to lead, who is going to do something crazy in five minutes, one hour, tonight or tomorrow”.
  • Don Lemon on CNN talked about President Trump’s appearance! He even said, “Does he not own a mirror”!
  • A four person CNN panel talked about Trump supporters at his rallies in very negative terms.
  • A Democratic Party Executive Director in Pennsylvania was forced to resign when someone discovered that he posted on Face Book over a year ago that he, “Stood for the flag and knelt at the alter”. He is a Marine veteran who also posted about his support for police officers.
  • Mary Bono, the interim CEO of the USA’s Olympics Gymnastics program was forced to resign five days after she was appointed when someone pointed out that she tweeted a negative photo about the Nike logo and Colin Kaepernick in September.
  • In a speech at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics Nancy Pelosi said that the wall was a manhood issue for President Trump. She actually said, “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that”.
  • Ted Cruz was verbally assaulted in an airport by two women because he voted for Judge Kavanaugh. Cruz’s response was priceless. He said, “Thank you for expressing your First Amendment rights” and “God bless you, ma’am”.
  • Two Republican’s running for office in Minnesota were physically assaulted in unprovoked public attacks. One sustained a concussion when he was blindsided in a bar. The other one sustained bruises on her upper arm.
  • After ANTIFA and BLM members vandalized the “Metropolitan Republican Club” late last week NY Governor Cuomo publicly called for the FBI and NY City police to investigate the Republicans for “inciting a riot”!
  • Natalie Mayflowers Sours Edwards is a senior official in the Treasury Department’s “Financial Crimes Enforcement Network”. She was arrested and charged with leaking confidential banking reports to a reporter. When she was arrested she had a flash drive that contained confidential reports involving Paul Manafort.
  • While discussing Donald Trump’s public statements about Saudi Arabia’s possible involvement in the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi on CNN Jake Tapper said that President Trump is tougher on Taylor Swift than he is on Saudi Arabia.
  • In a speech at a political rally with Senator Warren, Stacy Abrams, the Democratic candidate in the Georgia Governor race said that the “blue wave” includes everyone. She said, “It is made up of those who’ve been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented”.
  • LaDawn Blackett Jones, a municipal court prosecutor in South Fulton county Georgia offered everyone who had a case before the court to have their fines reduced by $50 dollars if they registered to vote or proved that they were already registered to vote. Tiffany Sellers, the court judge agreed to the reduction in fines offer and denied that it was illegal. However an election law attorney said that it was a violation of state and federal law to offer anything of value in exchange for a person registering to vote. Court records for that day indicate that there were 110 cases on Judge Tiffany Sellers docket and approximately 90% took the reduction in fine.

As noted above this list is just a sample of what the Left said and did over the last few days. To put this into perspective Brietbart News recently published a “rap sheet” listing 600 incidences of violence and harassment toward Conservatives and Trump supporters.

As I wrote last week, “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES! Vote Republican on November 6! Early voting begins in Georgia on October 15! 37 states and the District of Columbia have some form of early voting. This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime!”

I am totally convinced that these mid-term elections will determine America’s future for many years to come. I got a sample ballot on Monday and then came home and researched everything on the ballot. I already knew every person on the ballot and that I was going to vote a straight Republican ticket, but I was not knowledgeable about the proposed State Constitutional Amendments or other Referendums on the ballot. After doing my research I went back and voted on Tuesday comfortable that I had made the right choices. Please do the same and VOTE Republican!

We Are One Election Away From Saving America or the End of America!

The “gloves are off”! The Democrats are not even trying to hide their “destroy America Agenda” now. They are that obsessed with keeping and building their POWER. Without their POWER they cannot constantly feed their insatiable egos and add to their wealth. And unfortunately it is not just the Democrats in the Washington Cesspool. It is the self-appointed Washington elite, the so called Hollywood elite, the RINO Republicans, college professors and administrators (especially the elite liberal college and law school professors and administrators), all the spoiled kids who are being brain washed by liberal teachers and professors (in some cases beginning in grade school) and the Main Stream Media. The Judge Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court by President Trump has suddenly made all the America haters see President Trump as what he really is. The first real threat to their POWER in decades, which is the first real threat to their decade’s long personal obsession with “fundamentally changing” America!

When Judge Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court everyone on the “LEFT” also realized that the November 6 elections are the next “last stand” for them and the rest of us in America who opposes them. If he is approved it will be another loud and clear signal to the world that Middle America has had enough of the Washington Cesspool and wants it to change. The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America became the symbolic opening shot in the final battle in the long running war between the Left and the Right for America. The appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court will be an equally loud shot in this war. 

As Sean Hannity said last night the Democrats no longer believe in, “due process, the rule of law or the Constitution”.  He is spot on in that analysis. It also appears to me that the Left believes that there are no longer any consequences for anything they choose to do to maintain their POWER in Washington. I believe that this last part about there not being any consequences for anything that they choose to do is really a last desperate shot at staying in POWER, and proof that they are LOSING!

As I wrote last week the effort to destroy the Kavanaugh appointment is the most organized and dirty political effort I ever recall seeing in my lifetime. U.S. Senators disgustingly attacked this man for over 32 hours over two days with him staying totally professional the entire time, in spite of the added distractions of paid, irrational protesters constantly disrupting the hearings and attacking conservative Senators. The Democrat Senators even withheld a confidential letter with unsubstantiated decades old allegations against Judge Kavanaugh until it was obvious they could not stop Judge Kavanaugh from being appointed. Then they launched an all-out carefully coordinated attack intended to destroy this man and his family, with the eager assistance of the RINO Republicans and MSM. When that did not work they took their efforts national and even leaked the confidential letter and compelled the accuser to go public. When this happened it became public that the accuser had already gone public with interviews with selected news outlets and was represented by a number of high profile hard Left lawyers. When the Republicans finally got her, with two of her lawyers to testify before the committee debating Kavanaugh’s appointment she was probably the worst witness I have ever seen! When it became obvious that even this would not stop Kavanaugh’s appointment the Democrats, with the help of the RINO Republicans and MSM started a new tactic. They demanded another FBI background investigation and insisted on delaying, delaying, delaying Kavanaugh’s final up or down vote in the Senate. When it became apparent that the 7th FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh’s background would not produce any evidence that he was guilty of anything that would prevent him for being confirmed, they launched a new attach insisting that he did not have the “temperament” to be a Supreme Court Justice. This was based on him forcefully defending himself and his family when he testified before the committee after his accuser had failed miserably to deliver verifiable testimony to the committee that he had been a drunk and sexual predator when he was in high school. Now that the 7th FBI background check has been delivered to the White House and Senate without uncovering any new evidence that Kavanaugh is unfit to be a Supreme Court Justice the Democrats and their supporters are now insisting that the 7th FBI background check was inadequate! Delay, Delay, Delay!

The news about the “Lefts” disgusting and in many cases desperate criminal efforts to stop this nomination is overwhelming! One glaring example of how far the “Left” will go to destroy the Kavanaugh nomination was the FBI arrest of a congressional aid to Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee on FELONY DOXXING charges. He published the private confidential phone numbers and home addresses (in Washington and their home states) of three ranking Republican Senators on social media putting them and their families at risk of physical harm! It should also be noted that this staffer previously worked for two Democrat Senators including Barbara Boxer!

Another glaring example of how far the Left will go to destroy the Kavanaugh nomination happened earlier this week on a Texas University campus. A group of pro-Kavanaugh students organized a rally on campus in support of Judge Kavanaugh. They were quickly surrounded by a much larger and angry group of anti-Kavanaugh students who tore the rally attendee’s posters from their hands, ripped them to shreds and threw the pieces back at the Kavanaugh supporters while screaming at them. As usual the campus police and administrators were “invisible and silent”. Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson are correct when they say the Left hates FREE SPEECH unless it agrees with them!

As I said above we are one election away from losing the “war for America”. We can win this war by keeping control of the House and Senate on November 6 and even better by adding to the Republican majority in both!  Vote on November 6 and vote Republican!      

The Democrat Party and the MSM No Longer have a Conscience!

Egos, Money and POWER, with emphasis on POWER. That is all that seems to be driving the Democratic Party and the MSM now. All you had to do to see this was watch what happened in the “Washington Cesspool” over the last few weeks, especially this week. In an interview on Tucker Carlson’s show last night, September 4, Britt Hume explained what is happening in a remarkably clear and concise way. He said that the Democrats have been using the Supreme Court to shape America’s legal system for many years. They have deliberately used the Supreme Court to get laws in place that they could not get passed in legislation in Congress, or signed into law by a President, that would not be overturned on appeal. As I listened to his detailed explanation it became crystal clear to me that he was correct. He used abortion rights and Obamacare as perfect examples of this and how both of these became fixed law after they worked their way through our justice system and were ultimately decided by the Supreme Court. This is why the Democrats are so obsessed with destroying the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination. If he is approved and sworn in it will create a conservative, Constitutional leaning court for decades. And if President Trump gets to appoint another Supreme Court Justice it will be virtually impossible to change the make-up of the Court in any of our lifetimes! This is the Left’s worst nightmare coming true, so their objective is to stop the Kavanaugh appointment at any cost.

The first day of the Kavanaugh hearing was not like anything I have seen in my lifetime. The Democrats only have one chance of keeping the Supreme Court from shifting to the Right, and it is a poor one. Their only chance is too delay the hearing until after the mid-terms and hope they can take control of the Senate during those elections. And even that is weak because the Republicans will still control the Senate until January 2019, even if they lose the Senate on November 6. I personally do not think the Republicans will lose the majority in the Senate regardless of how the MSM is frantically trying to spin it.

The first day of the Kavanaugh hearing was interrupted 63 Times by the Democrats! These interruptions were obviously carefully pre-planned and choreographed to maximize their affect. This was what can only be described as a “last ditch” effort to shut the hearings down indefinitely. Thanks to strong Republican leadership the Left failed miserably. All they accomplished was to make themselves look un-American and totally self- serving. Richard Blumenthal, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker all set the drama performance bar especially high for their fellow Democrats with their totally out of order, carefully planned and choreographed interruptions of the proceedings. Blumenthal even made an obviously well-rehearsed attempt to appeal to Kavanaugh to “voluntarily withdraw from the proceeding until the Democrats had adequate time to review all his records”. It is important to note that almost all the Democratic Senators refused to even meet with Kavanaugh prior to the hearing making it clear that they were already an absolute NO vote. Delaying the hearing will only give the Democrats more time to try and find ways to destroy his appointment. This is dirty politics at its worse.

In addition to the organized and carefully choreographed Democratic outburst we also saw the same organized and carefully choreographed “spontaneous” disruptive outbursts from protestors who managed to get into the hearing room. The Democratic Senators, with the help of the protestors managed to continually disrupt the hearing the entire time that it was in session. 70 protestors were arrested!

And let’s not forget the MSM’s role in all this! Bob Woodard, a long time Washington Post journalist announced this week that his new book, which has not been released yet, is an absolute “tell all” about the Trump Presidency being in a total state of turmoil. I use the word “journalist” very loosely in this case because it appears that all of his sources were second or third hand. None of the exerts out of the book that have been selectively pre- released so far has been originally sourced! The pre-releases of these exerts were done specifically to hype the book and hurt the Kavanaugh appointment, and ultimately the Trump Presidency. Woodard originally made his fame when he helped expose the Nixon “cover up”, which resulted in Nixon’s resignation. He has been at the Washington Post since 1971 (57 years). This book is obviously a feeble attempt at remaining relevant in the “Washington Cesspool”.

Chuck Todd, the Political Director for NBC and host of “Meet the Press” is another hard left member of the MSM. He recently posted a lengthy essay in “The Atlantic” arguing that the media needs to “start fighting back “ against its critics. He specifically called for a more aggressive press with a lower tolerance for talking points. I find this call for more “intolerance in the MSM”, coming from one of the most intolerant hard Left members of the MSM, to be absolutely inconceivable! The timing of this essay also appears to be carefully choreographed to impact the Kavanaugh appointment and mid-term elections.

Those of us who want America to be “great again” must not be silent. We must continue to stand up and support President Trump’s tireless efforts to “make America great again”, especially at the ballot box!
