The Left Cannot Believe That it Lost the Election and Continues to lose!

In several of my past articles I noted that the Democrats get up every morning with a text message, voice mail or electronic memo telling them what the party’s talking points are for the day. All you have to do to recognize this is watch and listen anytime a Democrat steps up to a microphone. The Democratic Party leadership also keeps a tight rein on its member to assure that they stay “on” these talking points. Note to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Tom Perez and Keith Ellison: This is NOT working well for your party now, but please keep doing it!

The Democratic Party’s obsession with “our way or else” has been happening for a long time, but now it has reached a point where the party’s leadership has completely lost touch with what is actually happening in America. It appears that the party’s leadership also still believes that anyone who helps carry out the party’s agenda is immune to any negative consequences, regardless of what they do.

What is happening in America now:

  • After many months of investigations by Congressional committees and the Special Council, and a waste of millions of dollars of taxpayer money, there has not been a single thread of evidence produced confirming any Trump Russian collusion, or any attempts to interfere in the November 2018 election. The “Russia, Russia, Russia Collision” story is not only dying, it is focusing unwanted attention on the Democrats (who did actually collude with Russia).
  • The “Russia, Russia, Russia Collision” story has been replaced with the Democrats loudly claiming that Trump “Obstructed” justice when he fired Comey in an attempt to cover up the “Russia Collusion”. The “Obstruction of Justice” claim includes a reference to it being the basis for impeaching Trump.
  • The Main Stream Media continues to help the “Washington Cesspool” attack everything Trump, including fabricating “news” that is very detrimental to the Trump Presidency and America. One recent “fake news” report caused a short lived stock market crash, forced CNN to issue a public retraction of the report and the “reporter” who wrote the “fake news” story was suspended.
  • Information is becoming public that Mueller and various high ranking people in the DOJ and FBI were involved in Hillary’s “e-mail gate” cover up. Hillary and her staff were basically given a free pass while General Flynn and several other people are being prosecuted for allegedly lying to the FBI (not colluding with Russia).
  • Undeniable proof is being made public about various ranking DOJ and FBI staff working to protect Hillary and defeat Trump, and now they are working to impeach President Trump. The information that was made public about their unethical, and in some cases criminal activities is so “damning” that some of the Clinton/Obama “holdovers” had to be “reassigned” to try and cover up their activities.
  • Four Clinton/Obama “holdovers” have been charged with and convicted of crimes for illegally “unmasking” Trump campaign staff, transition staff, or staff members after he was sworn in. Information obtained in the illegal “unmasking” was then illegally leaked to the MSM. This is just the cases that have been publicly acknowledged. I am sure there are a lot more that are still sealed.
  • There are currently 27 open active investigations about Clinton/Obama “holdovers” illegally “unmasking” Trump campaign staff, transition staff and staff members after he was sworn in, and then illegally leaking information obtained during the illegal “unmasking” to the MSM. This is just the number of cases that has been publicly acknowledged. I am sure there are a lot more that have not been publicly acknowledged yet.
  • Obama and his supporters continue to constantly and publicly blast President Trump and his supporters. In a recent speech at an international climate change forum Obama apologized for America not being part of the forum, said that absence was “temporary” and that it was due to America “being leaderless right now”! And we thought that Jimmy Carter was a mean spirited, small, little man after he left the White House!

This is just a small sample of what the “Washington Cesspool” is doing in its continuing efforts to destroy America and make it part of a “One World Order”.

The Left is really going to “freak out” after the November 2018 and 2020 elections!  Wake up “Washington Cesspool”.  Middle America is wide awake and angry.

 

 

Washington is Rotten to the Core! Shut it Down December 8, 2017!

This article was originally published in May 2017. It has been rewritten for the looming December 8, 2017 budget deadline.

Congress, and consequently the entire Federal Government, has been increasingly dysfunctional for decades. Unfortunately eight years of the Obama Administration took the level of dysfunction to a “point of no return”. Democrats and RINO Republicans (Republican in name only) are equally at fault.

It is obvious that the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) are already painting a bright target on the chest and back of every Republican that is up for re-election in the mid-term elections in 2018.  What the President and Republicans do, or do not do between now and November 2018, will not change the Democrat’s and MSM’S plans for the Democrats to take over every branch of Government in November 2018 and 2020, and then make America part of the “One World Order”.  However what the President and actual Conservative Republicans do will determine who is elected in November 2018 and 2020.I am convinced that “Middle America” has become more attuned to what is happening in Washington, so they will not place all the blame for a government shutdown on December 8, 2017 on all Republicans!

I have written a number of articles where I said that the Democrats get up every morning with a daily message waiting for them with the specific Democrat Party talking points and marching orders for the day, and the Democrats all stick to those talking points and marching orders no matter what happens. The opposite is true for the Republicans. Some Republicans are actually trying to listen to their constituents and the rest (RINOs) are also playing the “Washington Game”, which is:

  • How do I stay in office?
  • How do I get more rich and powerful while I am here?

Elected members of Congress alone are not the entire “Washington problem”. Many people appointed to positions of power are also part of the “Washington problem”. Federal Judges who “legislate from the bench” and people like Jim Comey and Robert Mueller who use their position, or prior position, to assure that they continue to be an integral part of what they see as the “Washington Elite”.

It is inarguable that Congress does not remotely resemble what our Founding Fathers planned for it to be. The Founding Fathers believed that elected officials should serve America out of a sense of patriotism. They should go to Washington, do their job and then go back home to their family and personal businesses. THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL CAREER POLITICIANS!  ESPECIALLY NOT POLITICIANS THAT PROMOTE DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR OR VIOLENCE!

Why did I say in the title of this article, “SHUT IT DOWN December 8, 2017”?  Because I am now convinced that shutting the Federal Government down is the only way to begin to fix it (other than an actual revolution).

There are two points regarding a Federal Government shut down that are important to know:

  1. Critical services continue to function during a shut down. Anyone who says things like old people will not get their social security checks if we shut the government down is an absolute liar!
  2. Government employees are still paid when they are not working due to a shut down! This should not happen!

President Trump, please do not agree to anything Congress proposes that does not meet the mandate you were sent to Washington to do. Shut the Federal Government down December 8, 2017 and keep it shut down as long as necessary to force needed changes (no more Federal budget “continuing resolutions”). Use your “phone and pen” to conduct Washington’s business until you are convinced that Congress may be willing to actually do what it is supposed to do. Direct your Cabinet Secretaries to cut their departments like you proposed for them to do, not what Congress wants. Stop trying to “fix” Obamacare. Let it collapse and then replace it. INSIST on a Constitutional Amendment establishing TERM LIMITS for all members of the U.S. Congress and Senate! And please keep tweeting regardless of who suggest that you stop. You are communicating directly with Americans and not allowing the corrupt, deranged Main Stream Media to “filter” what you say! I am absolutely convinced that there are enough people in America now who have “had enough of the Washington problem” and will fully support you ANY WAY THAT IS NEEDED to fix the “Washington problem”.

The Obamaites are Still Doing Everything They Can to Destroy the Trump Presidency!

Urban Dictionary: Obamaite  – A blind follower of the prophet Obama. A person who pays no attention to his socialist policies or his radical associations with people like Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and will refute any negative claim about him, even if it is fact. He will say that you are smearing Obama, and that Obama never plays those political games.

Based on my observations the “Obamaites” have little to no concern that what they are doing is unethical, criminal, or even treasonous

“Obamaites” come from many segments of our population. Two things make them “Obamaites”:

  • An obsession with all things Obama.
  • An extreme hatred for any political belief that opposes Obama’s political views.

“Obamaites” usually fit into one of the following categories:

  • They are still working in various Federal Government jobs. These are Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Obama “holdovers” that have not been fired yet. Many of them are in positions of authority. These “Obamaites” are especially unconcerned that what they are doing is unethical, criminal or even treasonous. The number of “Obamaites” still working in Federal Government positions is slowly being reduced. It is being reduced slowly because of the depth and size of the “Washington Cesspool”.
  • Former Clinton and Obama Administration officials that have become public figures like Brennen and Clapper who are spending as much time in front of TV cameras as they can attacking everything Trump. Note: Brennen and Clapper were typical Obama Administration staffers. They lied to Congress under oath about their Department’s activities on more than one occasion.
  • Members of organized groups like “Antifa” and “BLM” with an expressed desire to destroy America and make it part of the “one world order”, and a willingness to accomplish this by any means necessary.
  • Elected officials whose only interest is self-aggrandizement regardless of the effect of their actions on America.
  • “Sheeple” – People who blindly follow the political entity that promises them the most freebies from the government.

Those of us that believe in the Constitution and America must do three things to assure that the “Obamaites” do not win.

  • Turn off and stand against the Main Stream Media.
  • Stay active politically to assure that there is a big turnover in elected officials in the November 2018 elections.
  • Give the Trump Administration the time it needs to drain the “Washington Cesspool”.

We can defeat the “Obamaites” if we preserver!

 

President Trump is Decisively Dealing With America’s Problems!

Pesident Trump is taking bold and LEGAL action to solve many of America’s long running problems in spite of a worthless Congress. Trump’s actions are forcing our self-centered and “do nothing” Congress to take legal action to deal with these things like they were supposed to do originally. In addition to Congress President Trump is also working against a totally dishonest Main Stream Media that is obsessed with helping destroy the Trump Presidency.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.  The recension gives Congress six months to solve the problem legally. With the clear understanding that Congress is going to have to negotiate with him or he will veto whatever they send to his desk.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally. Congress still has a short window to repeal and replace Obamacare with something that could actually work for the American people.

He signed an Executive Order directing the insurance regulatory agencies to remove any regulations that prevented people or groups from buying insurance across state lines. The order also directed the regulatory agencies to allow individuals to form groups, or join existing groups so they could buy insurance at lower group rates and to allow individuals to buy lower priced insurance plans that did not require people to buy coverage they did not need, like single males being required to buy coverage that had maternity benefits.

He refused to re-certify the ridiculous Iran Nuclear Deal. This effectively throws it back into Congress’ lap to try and make it better for America and the rest of the free world.

He and his Administration have dealt quickly and decisively with multiple disastrous hurricanes, multiple disastrous California wild fires and the worse mass murder in modern U.S. history.

He has met, and positively influenced, more world leaders in his first few months in office than Obama did in his eight years in office. Many world leaders are beginning to respect America again, and in many cases actually work with us to solve some of the world’s problems. This is happening in spite of the Democrat’s and RINO Republican’s rants to the contrary, the Main Stream Media’s obsession with dishonest reporting and fake news, and Obama “holdover’s” who are continuing their efforts to sabotage the Trump Presidency.

Nine months after President Trump was sworn in the ISIS capital of Raqqa was taken by a U.S. backed coalition of fighting forces!  It is amazing what is being accomplished with a change in the Commander in Chief, new battle tested military Commanders with the authority to make the decisions necessary to accomplish their objectives, and a change in the “Rules of Engagement”!

President Trump is accomplishing all this and more in spite of the fact that many of his chosen appointees, to various top positions in his administration, are being deliberately delayed by the Senate. This is another way that President Trump has exhibited his Senior Executive and Manager skills. He simply appointed qualified people to “acting positions” and watched the results to assure that they are doing the jobs well.

This is only a sample of what an amazing job President Trump is doing in spite of an unbelievable number of road blocks being constantly thrown out in front of him by the America hating “Never Trumpers”. This is a classic example of the difference between a highly qualified, skilled and successful MANAGER (President Trump) compared to an incompetent loser who constantly surrounds himself with incompetent sycophants and fails at everything (Obama). I wrote a detailed article about this in April and posted it here:  http://www.onlymakessense.com/business-management-101-trump-versus-obama-what-is-the-difference-between-successful-business-managers-and-incompetent-looser-managers/

 

 

The Washington Cesspool is Now Totally Dysfunctional and Combative!

How I defined the “Washington Cesspool”:

The “Washington Cesspool” is huge! It includes the Democrats, RINO Republicans, Main Stream Media, self-appointed members of the “Washington Elite”, most of the Washington career bureaucrats, and many federal employees. In fact the “Cesspool” has become so big it literally drowns out any one outside the cesspool who attempts to “call out” any of its members for anything they do or question anything any of its members says.

Tom Fitton, President of “Judicial Watch” calls it the “Deep State” and describes it as “legions of political appointees, career civil servants, and powerful private contractors who run the government no matter who is in the Oval Office. No matter which political party controls Congress. And, no matter what is the will of the American people. No matter who is in power they exert control. Oftentimes the liberal media effectively operates as the propaganda arm for the “Deep State”.

Regardless of what you call it, the “Swamp”, “Washington Cesspool”, or “Deep State” it is obvious that its inhabitants are becoming more obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency by any means necessary!

Here are just a few recent examples:

  • Nancy Pelosi publicly threatened to shut the Federal government down if President Trump continues to insist that a border wall be part of immigration reform. Senator Schumer immediately agreed with her.
  • During a speech about U.S. foreign policy at a New York think tank “Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden praised members of the audience as being leaders of U.S. foreign policy in the past, while bashing the Trump Presidency’s foreign policy decisions and actions, and even called the Trump foreign policy
  • Practically all of Obama’s political appointees were “rubber stamped” immediately by the Democrats and RINO Republicans in the senate. But after nine months in office President Trump still has many unfilled positions, even with a Republican majority in the senate!
  • Republican Senator Bob Corker made very demeaning public statements about President Trump.
  • Congress is spending millions of dollars and thousands of hours keeping the alleged Russian Trump campaign collusion investigation going, with the Main Stream Media’s eager assistance. Democrats and RINO Republicans continue to hold hearings and press conferences about this even though there has not been any actual evidence of Russian meddling in the election uncovered. This continues to happen while they have much more pressing issues like tax reform, the Federal budget, immigration reform, and Obamacare that really need to be worked on.
  • Congressman Al Green is planning to introduce legislation, with co-sponsors, to impeach President Trump.
  • Clinton and Obama “holdovers” in every government agency continue to violate laws, including acts of treason, on a daily basis in an organized effort to sabotage the Trump Presidency. Tom Fitton calls these people the “Obama Shadow Government”. Many of these people were actively involved in ILLEGALLY spying on the Trump Campaign and illegally releasing selected bits of information. INITIALLY THIS WAS A CAREFULLY COORDINATED EFFORT TO TRY AND INFLUENCE THE ELECTION. After the election they continued to spy on the Trump Transition Team and then the new Trump Presidency and illegally release bits of information in an ongoing effort to destroy the Trump Presidency.

As noted these are just a few examples of how far the “Never Trumpers” are willing to go to destroy the Trump Presidency. These people must be “called out” as the traitors that they are, and where ever possible replaced with patriotic Americans!

The “Cesspool” has been growing steadily for decades so draining it is going to be a long slow process. However, I am confident that President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and the President’s Cabinet Secretaries will steadily chip away at it over time.

 

 

A Total Disrespect for Authority and Open Hatred for America. How Did We Get to Such a Dark Place in America?

The Main Stream Media continues to “report” open displays of hatred for everything American. The most recent and visible examples of this were the over-paid professional athletes’ deliberate and disgusting disrespect for our flag and national anthem. One of the worst examples of this was the Baltimore Ravens refusing to stand up while our national anthem was playing before a game in England , and then they stood up to honor the playing of England’s national anthem, “God Save the Queen’!  This was a glaring example of how far the “America haters” are willing, and eager to go to show their hatred for everything American.

Based on my own life experiences I am really having a problem understanding how so many people in America openly hate America. From my earliest memories as a child I was taught that there were certain basic rules that I was expected to live by throughout my life. These basic rules were not complicated. They were:

  1. Respect the American flag and everything it stands for.
  2. Respect authority.

In addition to these two basic rules I was also taught that I was, “Blessed to be born in America”! Throughout my childhood and teen years I was reminded of this “blessing” on a periodic basis. The people that taught me this insisted that I understand that “being born in America” meant that I had unlimited opportunity to lead a happy and successful life and could overcome almost any obstacles that life placed in my path, if I really wanted to do that. Most over-paid professional athletics are perfect examples of being “blessed to be born in America”, but some of them are leading the anti-American protest?

Unfortunately there are a lot of people in America now who do not believe in the basic rules noted above, and do not believe that it is a “blessing to be born in America”. However, they do have a strong belief that they are somehow “entitled” to do as they please and be given anything they want with no negative consequences?

How did we did get to this “dark place in America” where so many people in America are willing, and in some cases eager to publicly display open hatred for everything American? It did not happen overnight. It has been building up for decades, became more visible during Obama’s eight years in office and then literally exploded onto the “national stage” during the last few months as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” reached epidemic proportions.

As I watched the “America haters” publicly attack everything American and flaunt it, it occurred to me that America is being viciously attacked from two directions. The primary attack is from the hard Left people who are obsessed with destroying America and making America become part of their “One World Order”. The second attack is coming from people in America who have become convinced that they are “entitled” and that “respect for authority” is an old and outdated principle that no longer has a place in America. The people in this second group are so obsessed with their belief that they are “entitled”, they are easily manipulated by the hard Left, ”new world order” America haters. That is why they are referred to by some people as “useful idiots”.

When Patriotic Americans stood up in November 2016 and elected Donald Trump as President of the United States of America the America haters and all the people in the “Washington Swamp” were literally shocked. They did not believe that anyone but their anointed one, Hillary could be elected. Clearly the “shock” has worn off now and the America haters have come together and are obsessed with one goal, destroy the Trump Presidency by ”any means necessary”. They are well aware that if the Trump Presidency survives their dreams of a “One world order” are finished or at least delayed indefinitely. Those of us who want America to survive must be vigilant and stand up for America as aggressively as the America haters are working to tear it down.

The America haters have good reason to be panicking. President Trump will never quit! He will drain the “Washington Cesspool” and “make America great again” if enough of us stand with him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Congress so Broken That It Cannot Be Fixed?

All indications are that the answer to that question is YES, but we are about to find out for sure.

Here are just a few of the things Congress must get done, many of them this month:

  • Hurricane Harvey relief
  • Probably hurricane Irma relief
  • Re-approve the FAA
  • Raise the federal debt ceiling
  • Renew CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program)
  • Approve a Federal budget.
  • Solve the DACA issue/Immigration Reform.
  • Fix or replace Obamacare
  • Pass comprehensive tax reform
  • Pass an infrastructure bill
  • Fix the budget cuts forced on the military, homeland security, and the VA by the 2011 Budget Control Bill (Sequestration)

When the Democrats held the majority position in both Houses of Congress and had Obama in the White House for two years, all they accomplished was to pass a badly flawed healthcare bill. In fact Obamacare was so flawed that Obama had to illegally modify it repeatedly with executive orders. When the Democrats lost the majority position in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 Harry Reid used his leadership position in the Senate to block practically every bill the House passed for the next four years. When the Republicans got a Senate majority position in 2014 Obama vetoed any bills that got to his desk that he or the Democrats did not like, which was just about all bills passed by the Republican controlled Congress. While Harry Reid blocked and Obama vetoed, Obama continued to “rule” America by executive order.

From 2010 through 2016 the Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) constantly blamed a totally dysfunctional Federal Government on “Republican obstruction” when most Republicans were just refusing to support Congressional, Federal agency, and White House actions that they truly believed were not good for America. Now that the Republicans hold a majority in both Houses of Congress and a Republican is President many Democrats are publicly saying that they will refuse to support any Republican proposals regardless of what they are, but I am not hearing the MSM calling them “obstructionist”?

With some Republicans being RINOs (Republican in name only), especially in the Senate, I do not believe the level of dysfunction that exist in Washington today will change until 2019 (after the November 2018 elections). The “Washington Cesspool” has become too self-serving and too “tone deaf” to recognize what is happening in Middle America now. It is going to take another Conservative Patriotic turnout at the ballot boxes in Middle America in November 2018 to begin to empty the “Cesspool”.

 

 

Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Reached Epidemic Proportions!

Whenever I think that open hatred for President Trump could not get any worse, it does! Every time I turn on the TV or log into the internet I see new levels of dishonesty (fake news) and hear loud, virtually venomous rants directed at President Trump and anyone who supports him. New “media” outlets or outlets that in the past have never been involved with current events are joining in the attacks with poorly written and grossly inaccurate articles.

Here are a few recent examples:

  • Secretary Tillerson is being attacked for “destroying” the State Department?
  • Condoleezza Rice and Bob Gates are being attacked for endorsing Secretary Tillerson.
  • Wolf Blitzer stared solemnly into the camera and blamed President Trump for Charlottesville and the terrorism in Barcelona! According to him the terrorist in Barcelona were inspired by the car attack in Charlottesville! This is a new level of absurdity even for CNN.
  • Anderson Cooper opened his CNN show with a lengthy monologue describing President Trump as a “white power supporting racist”. Apparently Cooper did not see any of the video footage of what actually happened in Charlottesville? For example the clear photo of an anti-rally protester that was using an aerosol spray can and a cigarette lighter to make an improvised flame thrower that he was using to try and burn people passing by in the legal rally! Whether or not you support the rally participant’s beliefs does not matter in this case. They had a rally permit and the anti-rally protesters did not. Clearly the Charlottesville violence was organized and incited by Antifa and BLM paid protesters, and allowed to happen by the Charlottesville authorities. In fact it seems pretty obvious that the actions of the Charlottesville authorities made sure the violence happened and reached the levels that it did. But, according to the Trump haters, somehow President Trump is to blame for the violence in Charlottesville because he is a white supremacy racist?
  • It is interesting that the MSM is still obsessing with Charlottesville with limited coverage of how well the Boston authorities maintained control of the protesters last weekend. The difference in Charlottesville and Boston adds credibility to the belief that the violence in Charlottesville was intended to happen and the Charlottesville authorities are at least partially responsible.
  • Secretary Mnuchin continues to be publicly attacked for refusing to resign because President Trump is anti-Semitic! Another absurd lie! President Trump’s son-in-law and key advisor is Jewish and his daughter converted to Judaism! Another new low from the Left.
  • There has not been any MSM reporting on an illegal march in Dallas with the protesters blocking a street and refusing to disburse while carrying signs and chanting, “cops and the Klan go hand in hand, oink oink bang bang” .
  • Everywhere they show up the Antifa and BLM paid protesters come prepared for violence. They wear mask, hoods, protective gear and bring weapons, including urine and feces filled balloons and sling shots to launch the balloons at the police and legal rally participant’s .This has been happening since early in the last Presidential campaign and is getting worse every week. How much has the MSM reported on this?
  • James Clapper, DNI during the Obama Administration, told CNN’s Don Lemon that President Trump is unfit for office, unstable and is a danger to the world due to his access to the nuclear codes. Note: While he was DNI Clapper openly lied to Congress on live TV about US Intelligence agencies collecting data on U.S. citizens.

“But it is all Trump’s fault”……

I have been asking myself and other people why the Trump haters are getting louder and more extreme every week? There are only two possible explanations:

  1. They think that there is so much resistance to the Trump Presidency that he cannot survive much longer.
  2. They think President Trump is going to survive and is beginning to flush the “Washington Cesspool” down the drain. Consequently they are becoming desperate to preserve their decades old corrupt and un-American way of life.

I think it is some of both but number “2” is beginning to be more prevalent because President Trump is not giving any indication that he is weakening, and some of the “Washing Cesspool’s” corruption is beginning to be exposed.

I have written and published a number of articles about what I have noted here and other similar topics. You can find them all here on my website.
