Partisan Politics at its Worst in the Washington Cesspool!

Merriam Webster definition of Partisan: a firm adherent to a party, faction, cause or person: especially one exhibiting blind, prejudiced and unreasoning allegiance: example – political partisans who only see one side of the problem

I have been closely watching current events and their effects on the US economy for over fifty years. During all this time it seemed to me that partisan politics steadily went to even more extreme levels than it was in previous years. This was especially noticeable beginning in the 70’s and it seemed to always peak around national elections. The advent of cell phones, computers, the internet and cable TV made partisan politics much more visible and gave partisan politicians a very “public platform” to promote their, and/or their party’s agendas. As this “public platform” became “24/7 and 365” more politicians, especially on the national level realized that they could use it to promote their personal agendas, not just their party’s. This is how the “Washington Cesspool” became so full of politicians who are obsessed with their own personal WEALTH and POWER!  And they will say or do anything to amass and hold on to personal wealth and power, especially the POWER.

A study referred to in a Wikipedia article, the “American National Election Study”, came to the same conclusion that I described above regarding partisan politics in America. The “Study”, which began in 1952, concluded that over 60 years, “the meaning of the term (partisan politics) in America has changed dramatically over the last 60 years”. The “Study” concluded that originally a person’s voting record determined if they were partisan. Now it is defined as a person who is psychologically attached to an agenda or party platform. Based on the Left’s behavior today that works for me.

The change in partisan politics from support for party platform planks to personal aggrandizement and ideology is by far the most visible on the Left side of politics in America. The Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM) are so obsessed with their personal agendas that they will not let anything, including our Constitution interfere with their efforts to expand their personal power. In fact, they see our Constitution as the main thing standing between them and their personal agendas! They are so obsessed with destroying our Constitution they have taken their open attacks on our Constitution to unprecedented levels, and with the eager assistance of the MSM, they are flaunting it! Here are a few recent examples:

  • The Electoral College: People on the left have been working to destroy this core part of our Constitutional Republic election process for 20 years. Kristian Gillibrand, a New York Senator and Democratic candidate for president recently announced that she was going to introduce an amendment to a bill in congress to eliminate it! Ten states with liberal elected officials have passed, or introduced, state laws that change the way their states electors are allocated to candidates. These laws are in direct violation of our Constitution, but the Left does not care and insist this is a battle they can win.
  • Free Speech: Christiane Amanpour, during a CNN interview with James Comey asked why the FBI did not shut down “hate speech” like “lock her up”. She insisted that “hate speech” like that coming from the Trump campaign was “dangerous” and should be shut down. She only referenced “hate speech” coming for the Trump campaign, nothing about the blatant lies and accusations the Left is constantly spewing.
  • Religious Freedom: This freedom has been under constant attack for decades but during the past few years they seem to be especially focused on practicing Christians, while the Left is loudly insisting that people who are Muslims be protected from any form of discrimination.
  • Freedom of the Press: The Obama Administration illegally wire tapped Fox News reporter James Rosen and his family because they did not like his reporting as part of the White House Press Corps. This illegal spying on an American citizen morphed into a massive attack on many American’s “Freedom of Speech” when it became S.O.P. with the Obama Administration, especially during his second term. Practically everyone that publicly opposed the Left’s agenda was targeted. Not only did the Obama administration illegally spy on an untold number of American’s communications, their names and selected parts of their communications that could be used against them politically were “leaked” to members of the media that shared the Left’s views. This included the Trump campaign headquarters in Trump Tower! After the November 2016 election Obama ordered all US intelligence agencies to ramp up their surveillance efforts on the Trump campaign and transition team.
  • Gun Control: This Freedom has been under constant attack on a national, state and local level for decades. In recent years it has developed into a national movement with many organized and heavily funded groups working full time to destroy this freedom bit by bit. Their latest organized effort is to destroy the NRA financially. They are putting huge pressure on all financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers, large retail conglomerates and sporting goods companies to refuse to do business with the NRA, or associate with the NRA in any way. This effort is beginning to yield results and could destroy the NRA. The NRA is, in affect the last thing standing between us and the elimination of our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. As usual the Left wants a double standard for themselves and us. The “elite” can afford to live and work in places that have security systems, and in many places armed guards, but they do not think those of us in “Middle America (deplorables) should have the right to “own and bear arms”.
  • In one of my past articles I wrote about the Obama administration “stacking the deck” against Conservatives, especially after the November 2016 election. The Obama Administration’s policy was to hire as many Federal employees as possible and promote as many Federal employees as possible to positions of power in every Federal agency and department. After President Trump was elected Obama ordered every Federal agency and department to accelerate their hiring and promotion efforts to assure there were as many “Obamaites” (Obama worshipers and Trump haters) as possible in our Federal government. These people are still sabotaging the Trump administration every day in every way possible. One example that is happening right now is Congressman Elijah Cummings, Chair of the House Oversight Committee grossly misusing his position to promote claims made by a White House “whistle blower” (an Obamaite) that President Trump violated White House security approval procedures. According to the “Obamaite” the President ordered that dozens of his staff members, including members of his family be immediately given high level security clearances so they could begin work in his administration. Where were these “Security Officials” during the time between the election in November and the January 19 Presidential inauguration? This is just one of many constant examples of ranking Democrats continuing to use positions of power to unethically, and in many cases, illegally work at trying to destroy the Trump Presidency.

The double standard of justice in the Washington Cesspool is becoming even more visible!

What I have noted here is just more evidence that what I wrote about in previous articles was correct. The Left is totally obsessed with total power over everyone and everything in America and will go to any lengths to accomplish that. The first step in achieving that goal is to shred our Constitution. If they accomplish that America will be “Fundamentally Changed” FOREVER!

We cannot let any of this happen! Many times over the years I have talked about how brilliant and far seeing our Founding Fathers were! This is one of those times. I still wonder how they developed and got a Constitution ratified over 200 years ago that is still so relevant and strong in today’s world!

The Left’s Behavior is Guaranteeing President Trump Will Be Re-elected on November 5, 2020!

The Left, Democrats (especially their leadership in Washington), the RINO Republicans and the MSM are so obsessed with their hatred for President Trump and his supporters they have become completely irrational. Not only is everything they are doing going to guarantee his re-election, but he will win by an even bigger margin than he did in 2016. He will begin his second term with an even stronger mandate to “Make America Great Again” than he began his first term with. I also expect many of the hard-left anti-American Democrats will have a harder time getting re-elected than they have in the past! I do not understand how blind the Left is to how angry they are making “middle America” with their blatantly anti-American behavior! Here are just a few examples of how delusional and totally irrational the Left has become:

The Mueller probe lasted 675 days. To date they spent 40 million dollars (that the public has been made aware of?), 25 million by the Mueller team and another 15 million by the FBI and DOJ. Mueller had 19 high profile lawyers working on his team, predominantly liberals. There were 40 FBI agents and specialist working full time on the investigation. They issued over 2800 subpoenas, over 100 search warrants, over 230 orders for communication records, almost 50 “pen request” which allowed them to see every communication record of an individual or entity, 13 evidence request to foreign governments, and interviewed over 500 witnesses. And they got nothing on collusion or obstruction of justice! The only convictions they got were for things that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign! IT DID NOT HAPPEN! THIS WAS A TOTALLY ILLEGAL AND TREASONOUS INVESTIGATION STARTED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND PERPETUATED BY “OBAMAITES” STILL WORKING IN VARIOUS FEDERAL JOBS.

Now the Democrats, and their supporters are refusing to accept that they lost what they were sure was their immediate route to the White House! They are making what they know are unreasonable demands that confidential information be released to everyone (which would be a direct violation of federal law). They are also insisting that the summary report is a “cover up” and that they will escalate their congressional investigations to “find the truth”.

Many of the Democrats running for president are demanding that the selection process for the Supreme Court and the composition of the Court be drastically changed! Some even want term limits for the judges! It is interesting to note that the Democrats want to term limit the Judges, but not themselves! The reason for all this is because they know that with President Trump still in office for a full first term and being re-elected for a second term, he will make sure that the Court is a conservative one that follows the Constitution as it is written for many years! The Left wants a Supreme Court that is loaded with Liberals like Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her dislike for our Constitution is so strong that in 2012 she traveled to Egypt to give a series of speeches and recorded interviews. At the time Egypt was working on developing a new more Democratic Constitution of their own. In some of her remarks she said, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution” as a model for their new Constitution.

Another idea the Democrats are pushing is to make Puerto Rica and Washington DC states! This would instantly give the Democrats a (probably permanent) majority in the Senate and strengthen their majority in the House.

The Democrats also want to give convicted felons the right to vote. I believe that a felon that has paid their debt to society and wants to return to being a productive citizen should have the opportunity to earn back their right to vote. However, instantly giving all convicted felons back the right to vote would immediately deliver a huge voting bloc to the Democrats. In recent elections felons were caught absentee voting while they were still in jail!

The Democrats also want to eliminate the Electoral College. If this happens there would not be a reason for most people in “middle America” to vote!

The Democrats also want to lower the voting age to 16. With our education system increasingly dominated by Liberals this would instantly deliver a huge new voting bloc to the Democrats.

The Democrats also want to drastically change the composition of (the number of Senators) and the selection process for the senate. They also want to change the senate rules to do away with the 60-vote rule and the filibuster. The way they want to do this would guarantee the Democrats a permanent super majority in the Senate! With this they would totally control everything, including the Supreme Court!

The Democrats also want to limit free speech! The way they want to do this is by changing FCC rules in ways that would increase government controls over public communications and would benefit the Left!!

As you can see everything the Democrats want to do would take a huge bite out of the Constitution! That is their goal. They want a permanent super majority in both houses of congress and control of the White House. With that control the Constitution would be completely shredded and America would be “fundamentally changed” FOREVER! And they are openly talking about all this and even flaunting what their plans are!

We cannot let any of this happen! Many times over the years I have talked about how brilliant and far seeing our Founding Fathers were! This is one of those times. I still wonder how they developed and got a Constitution ratified over 200 years ago that is still so relevant and strong in today’s world!

The Left is Dangerously Delusional!

I consider the Left to be almost all Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM

Dictionary.com: Delusional – Adjective – Having false or unrealistic beliefs or opinions.  (used in a sentence) Senators who think they will get agreement on a compromise tax bill are delusional.

Every time I turn on the TV, read a new current events book or see an article headline on the internet I have trouble believing the Left really thinks what they are saying and doing is good for America. I continue to believe that all that matters to the Left is personal power and money, and they will never have enough of either one. Here are a few recent examples of the Left’s delusion:

  • In a recent interview with David Axelrod, former Obama Senior Advisor and CNN Political Commentator, Jeb Bush talked at length about why he feels that President Trump needs to have a Republican primary challenger.
  • RINO Maryland Governor Hogan continues to talk publicly about the possibility that he will launch a primary campaign against President Trump. Several other RINO’s have also said they are considering doing the same thing. This is in spite of the fact that the RNC has made it crystal clear that they will not support a Republican primary challenger in any way.
  • Beto suddenly reversed his position and jumped into the Democratic primary campaign with some of the most bizarre statements and campaign planks I have ever heard. It has also been made public that he has some really bad “baggage” from his younger days that some of the MSM knew about when he was challenging Senator Cruz in 2016 but did not report on it? He wrecked his vehicle while trying to run from a DUI arrest and was a member of an organized criminal hacker group. Beto raised and spent over 80 million dollars in that losing campaign. Cruz spent less than 40 million. When Pelosi and prominent Democrats in Texas were asked to name one thing that Beto accomplished when he was in an elected office all they could come up with was a bill to name a post office.  After his formal announcement he got over 6 million dollars in donations in his first 24 hours. This was 100 thousand dollars more than Bernie Sanders raised in his first 24 hours. Where is all the money coming from?
  • Stacy Abrams, the handpicked, almost governor of Georgia is in Washington deciding if she is going to enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary. In an interview with Steven Ginsberg, the National Editor of The Washington Post she said, “I think that I am a skilled communicator, I think I’m a very good thinker. No, I know I’m a good thinker. I know I have policy chops. I have foreign policy experience. . . . I’ve done a great deal of work on a number of issues”. When she announced her run for Georgia Governor she had over $250,000 in credit card debt and owed the IRS $50,000. Now she is a potential presidential candidate with no known source of income? “If she decides to make the leap, the campaign would talk about race and identity, organizing, voter engagement and voter suppression, among other things”. Her position is that she lost the Georgia race because elections in Georgia, “are neither fair or free”. Based on some pretty credible reports it was her campaign that had a “large warehouse operation” doing everything possible to “stuff the ballot boxes”. Where is the money coming from? 
  • Even Chelsea Clinton has been attacked by the Left! At a vigil in N.Y. for the New Zealand mosque victims she was confronted by a group of students who claimed that she was partially responsible for the shootings because she had previously “stoked hatred against Muslims”. Her “sin” was making a public statement against Rep Omar’s anti-sematic public policy statements! Chelsea was invited to be part of that vigil?
  • Special Council Mueller filed documents in the U.S. District Court in Washington indicating that his “Russia interference with our elections probe” is ongoing. This is the clearest indication to date that the Left intends to keep this unjustified “investigation in search of a crime” going as long as they can. Tens of Millions of taxpayer dollars spent so far (that we know about) and many lives ruined with the only clear evidence so far indicating that the Obama White House, the DOJ, the FBI, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign all broke numerous laws and spent millions of dollars colluding and illegally trying to fix the election for Hillary.
  • The U.S. House of Representatives spent days last week passing a meaningless resolution demanding that the Mueller report (whenever it gets delivered to the A.G.) be made public in its entirety (which cannot be done for many legal reasons including national security). The only reason for doing this was to try and make the Republicans look bad when they did not vote for it. With President Trump’s full public support all the Republicans joined all the Democrats in voting for the meaningless resolution. This was nothing but a useless Democrat publicity stunt that wasted a lot of taxpayer money.
  • All indications are that “Speaker” Pelosi is losing control of her party in the House. I am reminded of when she was Speaker before and said this about Obamacare, “we must pass the bill so we can see what is in it”. Yes, there is TV footage of her saying that. I am now certain that she is that delusional. Under her leadership none of “the People’s Business” is getting done in the House.
  • Pelosi went public with her plans to support changing the voting age in America from 18 years old to 16 years old!
  • When an Army General was reporting to a congressional committee regarding the U.S. military’s needs in the upcoming budget year some representatives demanded our military remove an aircraft carrier and other ships from their requested items and replace them with airplanes that they said they did not need or want. With China rapidly becoming the number one threat to the world on the seas our military really needed the aircraft carrier and ships. I wonder how much money the lobbyist spent to get that done?
  • When Joe Biden said publicly that V.P. Pence is a “nice guy” the current Democrat declared presidential candidates “lined up” to denigrate Biden for saying that!
  • When it was reported that people in ICE detention centers were quarantined as a result of an outbreaks of mumps, measles and other contagious diseases the on-line attacks from the left went ballistic. They said things like this was “Trump’s Nazi death camps” and “they were for genocide on US soil. Repeat it with filthy MAGAs”. There were hundreds of comments like this on one CNN article.
  • When asked about the college admissions cheating scandal in a televised interview Senator Warren immediately condemned them. This is the person who signed forms at Harvard claiming to be part Native American so she would get special status as a minority on the staff.  She did the same thing on her Texas Bar application and in other places.
  • During an interview at the SXSW conference recently AOC said. “we must overhaul America’s garbage status quo, which is enslaved to irredeemable capitalism”. She also said that, “in America if you are unemployed you are left to die in the streets”.
  • Chris Wallace is increasingly showing his liberal side. In a recent interview with another Trump hater on Fox, Shepard Smith he said that, “there is no way Donald Trump can win a second term with just his base and he doesn’t seem to care about anyone else”. From what I have seen this is absolutely NOT TRUE!

Definitely DELUSIONAL!

When you add to the above the daily increase of Democrats officially declaring they are running for president, all with the same “capitalism bad, socialism good, raise taxes on corporations and the rich” platform, it is going to be an INTERESTING media circus from now until November 3, 2020!  And I still think that the Left will not succeed in removing President Trump from office and middle America will vote overwhelmingly to re-elect Him!

The Left is Openly Executing its Detailed Plan to Replace President Trump With Pelosi!

If President Trump is forced out of office the V.P. becomes President. If Pence is forced out after he became President without a V.P. in office (Pence would never get a two thirds majority in both houses no matter who he wanted as V.P.) Pelosi would become President. In this situation Pelosi would name a V.P. of her choice, subject to majority approval by both houses of Congress. Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller are the only examples of this in our history.

I think that the Left knows it cannot defeat Donald Trump in November 2020. They will never admit this but everything they are doing is aimed at destroying his Administration and as many of his family and supporters they can, even if it happens after he is re-elected. Note: I consider the Left to be almost all Democrats, the RINO Republicans and the MSM. They are all eager participants in the detailed traitorous plan to take the White House away from those of us that elected Donald Trump. A look at some facts proves that this is happening, and the Left is no longer concerned about what they are doing being unethical, illegal and in some cases Treason. As noted in my article last week thefirst part of the Merriam Webster definition of Treason is: “the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country”.

I am not the only person who thinks that the Left knows it cannot defeat President Trump in November 2020 but will never admit it. Rush Limbaugh talked about this at length on his radio show one afternoon last week, and I have heard other people talk about this on Fox News.

Here are a few examples of the Left’s deliberate efforts to destroy the Trump Administration, and totally take over America:

  • California, including Los Angeles county is being forced to clean up their voter registration rolls as a result of the settlement agreement of a Judicial Watch law suit against them. California and many of its counties have refused to clean up their voter registration rolls even though it is required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA requires states and counties to remove voter registrations when the voter does not vote in two consecutive general federal elections. These are usually people who have moved to another county or state or have died. It is interesting to note that Los Angeles county has a total population that is larger than the total population of 41 of our states. Judicial Watch reported that Los Angeles county has more people on its voter registration rolls than it has citizens old enough to vote. These numbers are the reason the Left is so obsessed with getting rid of the Electoral College and letting illegals vote. Accomplishing either of these goals will guarantee that a Conservative Republican will probably never win a national election again and America will become a one-party Socialist country. The Democrats took the first step in getting illegals to vote recently when they passed legislation in the House that made it easier for people to commit voter fraud. After the bill passed Pelosi and other prominent Democrats went on record publicly encouraging illegals to vote whenever they could. The Democrat Party position is that everyone should be allowed to vote in local and state elections! NVRA prevents illegals from voting in national elections (for now) but state, county and municipal elections are not regulated by the NVRA!
  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass) proposed an amendment to HR1 that would change the legal voting age to 16! People who are 16 years old are usually less informed about politics than people who are 18 and more easily influenced. People who are 16 years old usually have two more years in school which makes them prime targets for liberal educator’s indoctrination.
  • Rep Schiff and his staff made four trips to N.Y. City to meet with Cohen and his “Clinton Fixer” lawyer, Lanny Davis to prepare Cohen for his testimony before Schiff’s committee. Schiff initially denied this but when it became public (thanks to Fox News) the Democrats issued a public statement insisting that this was perfectly OK and was “Standard Operating Procedure” in situations like this. I am now absolutely convinced that the Democrats are colluding with Cohen to get him to say what they want him to say in exchange for reconsideration of his pending prison sentence.
  • The recent release of the transcript of Bruce Ohr’s testimony before a congressional committee proves without any doubt that Rep Schiff, and other Democrats lied publicly and colluded with top FBI and DOJ officials to influence the election and later to try to impeach President Trump. Ohr was an associate Attorney General at the DOJ and is just one of the top FBI and DOJ officials who have been fired or forced out of office since President Trump was sworn in for inappropriate and\or illegal behavior while in office.
  • Tom Perez, the Chairman of the DNC publicly announced that Fox News would not be allowed to host any of the 12 scheduled Democratic Presidential Candidate debates, “because they are not a news organization”. I do not believe that any other media organization has a potential debate moderator team that is as honest, balanced, knowledgeable and professional as a Bret Bair, Martha McCallum and Chris Wallace team would be and has been in the past!
  • Every House committee and sub-committee chair is dramatically ramping up investigations of “everything Trump” and spending many millions of taxpayer dollars in the process. Rep. Nadler and Rep. Schiff are two of the most aggressive chairs. Schiff even hired a former federal prosecutor and recent MSNBC legal analyst to “lead his committee’s investigations into Trump’s Russia collusion”.  
  • Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, General Flynn and their family’s lives have been totally destroyed based on Mueller investigations that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign and were way outside Mueller’s special prosecutor mandate. Mueller and his staff covered this up by referring these prosecutions to state prosecutors. John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff and Hillary’s campaign chair, and his brother Tony did some of the same things Manafort has been convicted of but no one seems to be concerned about that? Manafort has been held in federal prison in solitary confinement pending sentencing for FINANCIAL CRIMES! His initial sentencing was earlier this week. He was sentenced to 4.7 years in federal prison. His health has deteriorated to the point that he will most certainly die in prison. When the sentence was announced the Democrats immediately began to loudly and publicly say that the length of the sentence was an, “outrageous miscarriage of justice”! They insisted that it should have been much longer!
  • Rep. Tlaib held a press conference this week to announce that she was going to introduce a resolution calling for Trump’s Impeachment.
  • The Democrats refused to say that anything Rep. Omar has said or done has been wrong or out of order. All you have to do to see that this is not right is log into the internet or turn on a TV! Instead of condemning Omar in any way the Democrats passed an “all encompassing” bill condemning all forms of hate speech or discriminating behavior by anyone. This was an absolute and unnecessary waste of legislative time and taxpayer dollars! 

As predicted the Left has succeeded in the first part of their plan to take over the White House. That was to prevent anything from getting done in Washington until they destroy the Trump Presidency. However, I still think that they are grossly underestimating President Trump and his patriotic supporters!

Post Script: In a press interview with The Washington Post on Monday, March 11, 2019 Pelosi said she would not pursue impeachment against Trump because he “was not worth it”. However, she left herself an “out” when she said, “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan”. She is also letting all her House committee chairs continue to waste millions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of legislative hours digging for dirt on the Trump administration. It appears that she had to make this statement because Mueller is about to end his unethical and illegal investigation with nothing to show for it! The radical wing of her party is openly rebelling against this.

When Did the Left Transition From Partisan Politics to Treason?

As I wrote last week, I have been reluctant to use the word “Treason” to describe the Left’s behavior in the “Washington Cesspool” and some of the state governments. But after much thought, I am now convinced that what the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM) is saying and doing clearly meets the first part of the Merriam Webster definition of “Treason”.

Merriam Webster definition of Treason: “the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically: the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance”.

When the new Congress was sworn in on January 3, 2019 a handpicked by Pelosi, hard Left, America hating, power mad Democrat became the chairperson of every committee, and sub-committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. These people apparently have unlimited power and unlimited budgets (it is not supposed to be this way in America, but it is now)! All of these people are openly using their unlimited power and unlimited budget to accomplish the same thing. That one thing is to destroy the Trump Presidency. Over the last few days these people have also made it clear that now they will not be satisfied with destroying the Trump Presidency (“attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country”)! Now they are making it crystal clear that they are also going to destroy members of President Trump’s family and as many of his close associates and supporters as they can! It is not supposed to be this way in America! This is what happens in third world countries when one group of people forcibly takes power over another group of people and immediately takes everything of value from every member of the former ruling family, and in some instances imprisons or kills them.

Here are a few examples of the Left’s current actions aimed at accomplishing their one goal:

  • Jerrold Nadler, chairperson of the House Judiciary Committee made the rounds on the Sunday MSM shows to announce that his committee, “would seek documents from more than 80 people and entities as part of a probe into possible obstruction of justice and abuse of power by President Trump. Some of the entities and people he named as examples were the DOJ, Donald Trump Jr, and the CFO of the Trump organization, Allen Weisselberg. Nadler also said, “we are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption and into obstruction of justice. It’s our job to protect the rule of law (really?). It is very clear that the president obstructed justice”.
  • The first day of Michael Cohen’s (one of Trump’s former personal lawyers) testimony before Congress this week was a closed-door hearing before a House Committee. He was allowed to give a lengthy opening statement, that was leaked to the NY Times immediately by someone in the hearing and published by the Times while the hearing was in progress!
  • Cohen’s second day of hearings was public and broadcast by many of the networks. I had the privilege of watching and listening to most of this hearing while working on projects in my shop. It was truly “epic”.

Some of the things that were revealed during that hearing, that was sworn testimony and recorded were:

  • Cohen’s lawyer is lifelong Clinton “fixer” Lanny Davis who is allegedly representing Cohen FREE! 
    • Cohen did not volunteer to testify before Congress again just before going to prison for lying to Congress under oath and income tax fraud, among other things. Lanny Davis and other “powerful Democrats”, including current committee chairs collaborated and then “invited him” to testify again before selected committees just before reporting to prison.
    • Cohen is hopping for “re-consideration” for his pending prison sentence in exchange for his co-operating with Congress and the attorneys in the Southern District of N.Y. who are investigating President Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice.
    • Cohen’s statements and the documents and evidence he shared with the committee could not have been put together solely by him in the short period of time between when he was asked to testify again and his testimony. He obviously had “assistance” from knowledgeable people with a lot of resources. The documents were probably prepared by Lanny Davis and an experienced team of Democrats, lawyers and staff, and Cohen was well coached to say what they wanted him to say. Unfortunately, the results of the day of public hearing was that Cohen lied under oath again a number of times and will get more time in prison, not less.
  • Adam Schiff, one of the most unethical partisan Democrats in the “Washington Cesspool” chaired the committee that Cohen testified before, in private the third day. When the hearing ended Schiff, Cohen and every Democrat that was on the committee was “all smiles” for the TV cameras as they proclaimed it was a very productive hearing and Cohen was coming back for an additional day of testimony behind closed doors next week.
  • The hearings were deliberately scheduled to “compete” with President Trump’s meeting with North Korea’s dictator in Vietnam regarding the possible de-nuclearization of North Korea. This is unprecedented in American politics! What happened to the unbreakable rule that “politics stop at the water’s edge”?
  • Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law is another member of the Trump family that the Democrats are lazar focused on destroying (he is Jewish). The Democrats, with the eager assistance of the MSM, are leaking that, “members of the intelligence community” were strongly opposed to him getting a White House security clearance. None of the “officials” have been named and none of the reasons for their opposition have been made public?
  • Brietbart reported that, “Left -wing HBO host Bill Maher mocked voters in middle America on Friday’s (Feb 22) edition of “Real Time” explaining that less “affluent and educated” people in red states are jealous of those living in more prosperous states that tend to vote Democrat”. That was just part of his disgusting monologue. If you have not seen it the entire tirade of demeaning insults against Conservatives is available on the internet.

These are just a small sample of the Left’s OPEN EFFORTS to “overthrow” a Constitutionally elected President and destroy him, his family and as many of his supporters as they can, while making themselves and their party invincible! However, I still believe that they are all grossly underestimating President Trump and Middle America!

The Left Gets More Unhinged Every Day

Teachers brought “coached” students to confront Senator Feinstein in her California office about AOC’s “Green New Deal”. It was obvious that the students had been brain washed to the point of being frightened about what is going to happen to them in 12 years. One young girl holding a protest sign said to the Senator that, “scientist have said that we have 12 years to deal with this” When Senator Feinstein pushed back in a reasonable way the adults with the group, I assume they were teachers, became indignant. As expected the MSM has “selectively” released parts of the student’s visit to make the Senator look bad about her position on the “Green New Deal”. The trip was organized by the “Sunrise Movement Bay Area” and is being used by them to put pressure on elected officials like Feinstein. The students appeared to me to be elementary and middle school students, but the organizers claim that they are middle school and high school students. Either way this is an improper way to use students.

Kamala Harris’ family owned a large farm in Jamaica and used slaves to work it! Per a number of unrelated articles posted on the internet, “While Democratic 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif) is making calls for some form of reparations for slavery, her father revealed that their family has a history of being violent slave owners”. No surprise, I have not seen any of the MSM reporting on this?

Kamala Harris openly admitted in a live interview on a talk radio show to smoking marijuana in the past. When the host seemed surprised about this open admission by a sitting Senator and active Presidential candidate, she laughed it off and said, “I am Jamaican”. Her father did not respond well to her “I am Jamaican” comment. When the, still surprised, show host asked if she supported the legalization of recreational marijuana, she did not hesitate to say that she did. The MSM is burying this one too.

Recently the MSM began to obsess about how much time the President spends on “twitter”. One major station, I believe it was CBS, announced that they had assigned staff to monitor President Trump’s time on twitter and keep detailed records of how much time he spent on twitter every day.

With Washington grinding to a halt Nancy Pelosi got rock star treatment at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy’s party. She got a standing ovation and a long line of “stars” stood in line to get pictures with her recreating her “mocking Trump clap’ during his SOTU speech.

Disgraced and fired FBI Deputy Director, and Acting Director briefly, Andrew McCabe has been on a mind-boggling media tour promoting his new book and blaming everyone but himself for his firing. He has even named Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Director of the DOJ as being the person who suggested they use the 25th amendment to remove Trump from the White House, the person that said at least two cabinet members would support this and that he “would wear a wire to the White House to record President Trump”. When asked who the cabinet members were McCabe “could not remember”. He has repeatedly insisted that Trump “colluded” with the Russians to “fix the election”. Based on several articles posted on various internet sites, and reports on Fox News, McCabe is guilty of lying under oath on at least three occasions during recorded testimony.

McCabe failed to report a $700,000 campaign contribution from Terry McAuliffe, a high-ranking Clinton operative, to his wife for a failed run for political office in Virginia. He was required by law to report this on his financial disclosure forms at the time, but somehow this is not an issue for a career Democrat in the “Washington Cesspool”? Remember the “Washington Cesspool Double Standard of Justice” I wrote about last week?

Special Council Mueller continues to spend millions of taxpayer dollars and destroy families’ lives, General Flynn, Manafort, Stone, while he searches for “crimes that the Trump family may have committed”. This is how things are done in ruthless dictatorships, not in America. Stalin actually bragged about doing this. When Mueller could not find anything that he could prosecute Trump for he widened his investigation way beyond his original Justice Department mandate. Mueller did this with the full support of the leadership of the FBI and DOJ (who have all been forced to resign or were fired)!

Recently it was made public that in 1996 the IRS began issuing ITIN (Individual Tax Identification Numbers) to foreigners working in the U.S. who could not get Social Security numbers. This was intended for them to be able to legally file tax returns for money earned in the U.S. Somewhere along the way it became a way for illegals to file bogus tax returns with under reported incomes and inflated claims for child care credits. This has resulted in the IRS issuing huge tax refunds for bogus claims, and they are still doing it! In one case that was reported by a “whistle blower” in Detroit $28,000 was paid out in tax refunds to multiple illegals who were supposed to be living in a mobile home and claimed excessive child care credits for nieces and nephews. When reporters visited the mobile home only one couple with one child lived there. 

A number of people in the MSM have started monitoring President Trumps “Executive Time” and gleefully reporting it as excessive and unproductive. From what I have seen, and I am a news junky, this President works more and harder than any President in my memory and has accomplished more in two years than I believed possible. He has done this with more open opposition to everything he tries to do than any President that I am aware of. Who else in the White House had the leadership of the FBI and DOJ openly plotting to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment, with ranking members of the Left in Washington eagerly supporting them?

Schiff, Blumenthal, and a number of other hard Left Democrats are plotting with Mueller and State AG’s to make sure Manafort and Stone are charged with serious crimes at the state level. They are loudly bragging about this being done because the President cannot pardon people for crimes they are charged with in State Courts. 

Schiff, Nadler and other ranking Democrats are opening new and very expensive investigations into “everything Trump”. They are also issuing press releases and giving interviews to anyone in the MSM that will give them camera time insisting that they will subpoena Mueller if he does not immediately publicly release all the records from his investigations, as soon as he completes the investigations (which would be a serious violation of a number of Federal laws), and if he does not bring criminal charges against Trump. Various “Washington and New York insiders” are all saying that this is an indication that the Mueller investigations are winding down and no criminal collision has been found.

Obviously I could write a long book with examples like these, all easily documented, but I think the ones I listed here make it clear how bad things have gotten in Washington.

Up until now I have avoided using the word “treason” in any of my articles. I have tried to label everything the Left is doing as a new level of dishonest and nasty national politics. However, I am ending this article with the Merriam Webster definition of Treason: “the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically: the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance”. If the leadership of multiple Federal Government departments and ranking elected officials plotting to remove a sitting president simply because they do like him is not Treason, it is sure getting close to being!

I Really Hope the Democrats Keep Doing What They are doing Until November 3, 2020!

When President Trump won the 2016 election the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) became obsessed with hatred for him and destroying his presidency. This has been obvious to anyone who follows the news at any level. For at least a year many Conservatives have said publicly that the Democrat’s sole agenda was to destroy the Trump Presidency. It is obvious to me that they are correct, and that now the “destroy Trump agenda” is a carefully planned and organized three-part plan. They are aggressively executing all three parts simultaneously in case they fail to destroy his presidency before November 6, 2020. The three parts are:

  • Destroy the Trump Administration and force him out of office with the ultimate goal of putting him in jail.
  • Prevent the Federal Government from doing anything until November 6, 2020 so they (with the eager assistance of the MSM) can blame Trump for all the Federal Government’s failures until then. They believe that this will make conditions in America so bad it will cause him to lose that election. I overheard a person on Fox News one day last week say, “The Democrat’s agenda was no agenda”. As I thought about that it confirmed what I have been thinking for months. The Democrats, led by Pelosi and Schumer, are deliberately hurting America to defeat Trump!
  • Bury President Trump’s re-election campaign in the media with an avalanche of opposing candidates. As of this weekend there are already over 20 Democrats who have publicly declared they are running for President. There are over 20 more Democrats who have publicly said they are strongly considering running. There is at least one well known billionaire who has said publicly that he is researching running as an Independent and believes he can win by the numbers. Democrat party leadership is furious about this because they think he will take votes from Democrats. Several RINO Republicans have said they are considering running against President Trump on the Republican party ticket. Running against a sitting president on the same party ticket is something that is just not done! The Democrats love this idea and are encouraging it.

In addition to the Democrat’s three-part plan, various Democrats are taking (preapproved by party leadership) ridiculous public shots at President Trump and his supporters: Here a few of the most recent:

  • The Democrats on the Bicameral Congressional committee that is supposed to be putting together a compromise border security plan initially refused to discuss any budget for any form of border barriers. Last week it appeared that they might be willing to agree on a compromise bill that did budget some money for some border barriers. Last Friday, 2/08/19 the committee announced that the Democrats suddenly began to insist that any budget for any barriers would only be approved by the Democrats if the number of beds ICE has available to use to detain illegals was substantially reduced! This would effectively force ICE to release thousands of violent illegals if they could not immediately deport them! Many of these are illegals who committed crimes, here in America after they got in the country illegally! With a 2/15/19 deadline to have a compromise bill approved by Congress and signed by the President, an acceptable compromise bill had to be submitted to congress by the committee on 2/11/19. If the committee failed to submit an acceptable bill to congress by this deadline it would effectively kill the bill. This would be just one more carefully planned and orchestrated (poison pill) effort by the Democrats to hurt America and blame President Trump for it! Update: Thecommittee reached a compromise deal on Monday night, but it may not pass through congress and the President may not sign it. Complete details about what is in the bill have not been made public yet. What has been reported is that parts of the bill are BLANK, to be filled in after the bill is passed by congress and is signed by the President, if it passes and is signed by the President! Update: this morning, 2/14/19 the bill has not been placed before the House for a vote and people from both parties have referred to “poison pills” in the bill. Both parties are unhappy with the bill. President Trump said last night that he had not seen the bill yet, he was unhappy with what he knew about the bill, but liked the direction it was going in.
  • California governor Newsome and New Mexico governor Grisham both ordered the National Guard troops off their southern border! Yes, they can legally do this. Coincidence? Grisham also ordered the concertina wire that the troops had installed on the state’s border be removed.
  • Senator Warren joined a long list of prominent Democrats who are publicly saying that in November 2020 Trump may not still be the President, and in fact he may be in jail!
  • Cory Booker joined a growing list of prominent Democrats who are publicly declaring their support for AOC’s “Green New deal”. He said that denying that global warming (now called climate change) is an immediate threat to the world is the equivalent of denying the Nazis existed in World War 2!
  • The Democrats continue to angrily declare that “Trump is lying about a crisis on our southern border and the number of arrest and drug seizers on the border are actually declining”. According to what the Border Patrol publicly told President Trump on his recent trip to the border it is the Democrats who are blatantly lying about conditions on the Border. Over 200,000 illegals were apprehended on the border between October 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019! This is an 84% increase over the same time period a year ago! Border patrol agents cited two examples of recent apprehensions that highlighted how serious the crisis is. Border Patrol agents noticed smoke from a large camp fire along the border. When they approached the campfire they found 151 illegals waiting to be taken into custody. The second example was that in January they apprehended illegals from 17 different countries, including two from Pakistan! The media that was traveling with President Trump on this trip, and the MSM have made sure this information was buried.

It is clear to me that the “Washington Cesspool’s” survival depends on destroying President Trump any way they can, regardless of how much damage they do to America along the way. In addition to all the other positive things President Trump has accomplished in his first two years, his insistence on making our southern border secure is a key part of defeating the Left’s plan to ultimately take total control of our government. Without millions of illegals voting (almost all for Democrats) the Left cannot ever totally take over our government (at least until the millennials become the ruling class, but that is another problem on its own!).

The Left Believes So Strongly That They Are Invincible They Have Become Irrational and Un-American!

As I wrote last week, the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM) has become so obsessed with what they believe is their total power over America they think they are invincible. This is especially true as they display their open hatred for President Trump and his supporters. That is the only explanation for their irrational and un-American behavior. Everybody on the Left loudly insist that they know what is “wrong with America” and they know how to “fix it”. They are all mired so deep in this mindset that they stubbornly refuse to admit that anything good has happened in America since President Trump was elected. Anytime anyone tries to ask them a question they do not like they ignore the question, denigrate the question, or my favorite, they deflect the question by blaming Trump and his supporters for something else. The latest example of their puppet like deflection is the steady stream of people on the left being “talking heads” and somehow blaming President Trump and other prominent Republicans for “creating an environment” that caused so much negative focus on Virginia Governor Northam’s 34 year old racist picture, that he now denies was him. They clearly have a prepared script with specifics allegations against President Trump, Representative Scalise and Representative King to use to deflect any focus on the governor. The Left’s own attacks on the governor are also a deflection. The Left is using the racist claims to deflect attention away from their extreme stance on abortion. This is now their S.O.P. Deny, deflect, attack and then claim they are the only ones who can, “make America right again”. This is all they can do now because the Trump Administration has accomplished so much in his first two years!

Since President Trump was sworn in we have:

  • More Americans working than ever before. The highest labor participation rate we have had in decades.
  • Average increased income for working Americans of 3.3% in 2018. Working Americans also got bigger pay checks as a result of the Trump tax cuts.
  • America became the number one oil and gas producer in the world while meeting the goals set for it in the Paris Climate Agreement, even after President Trump withdrew us from the agreement. It is interesting to note that some of the other countries that are still part of the agreement did NOT meet their goals!
  • In recent trade talks between China and President Trump China committed to purchase a lot of American goods, including a large amount of soybeans, and to make Fentanyl be a controlled substance in China! Fentanyl overdoes in America has become a growing epidemic. There were 18,000 Fentanyl overdose deaths in America in 2018. Recently 254 lbs. of illegal Fentanyl were discovered in a load of cucumbers coming into the U.S. from Mexico. Experts say that a small amount no bigger than a few grains of salt can be a deadly overdose, so 254 lbs. would be enough to overdose millions of people.
  • GDP in America in 2018 was a record 3.2%. During Obama’s eight years GDP was dramatically below this every year he was in office.
  • 304,000 new jobs were created in January, in spite of the shutdown!  During President Trump’s two years in office American businesses have created an average of 250,000 new jobs per month. During Obama’s eight years in office there were times when you could add up the new jobs created in America for many months and it would not total 250,000. Obama even said that “those jobs are not coming back”.
  • There is a power generating plant in the county south of me. It had five towers working before the Obama Administration killed coal production. Four were shut down and one was converted to natural gas. The last one was shut down in 2015. For years there were miles of empty coal rail cars sitting idle, abandoned at the rail yard at the plant. Last Saturday as I passed by the plant I noticed all the rail cars were GONE. The railroad is using them to haul coal again! And there is a major construction project going on at the plant.

If the Left is not successful in destroying the Trump Administration before November 6, 2020, President Trump will be re-elected. The Left will never admit it but they know that is true. That is why they are so obsessed with attacking President Trump and his supporters. I am going to continue to support and bet on President Trump!

Postscript: I have been following politics my whole adult life, closely for over 40 years. During all this time I have never seen such disgusting un-American behavior like I witnessed from the Left before, during and after the 2/05/19 State of The Union address, especially during the address!

The Left Has Become So Obsessed With Power That They Believe They Are Invincible!

The Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) has become so obsessed with their Power they are deliberately putting the future of America at risk! In fact their actions are so extreme now that it looks like the destruction of our Constitution, as declared by Obama when he said, “we are going to fundamentally change America”, is their ultimate objective. As I think back about watching him say that on TV I had no idea that was really going to happen, much less this soon! Here are a few recent examples that prove that is happening now, and is a planned, organized and inflexible effort with everybody on the Left eagerly working to achieve that goal:

  • The Mueller pre-dawn raid on Roger Stone’s home is the latest and clearest example of the Left’s obsession with their own power and is undeniable proof that they believe they are so powerful they have become invincible (Merriam Webster definition of invincible: incapable of being conquered, overcome, or subdued). Several things make the Mueller raid one of the most glaring examples of the Left’s open disdain for our Constitution. The carefully planned and coordinated raid happened before daylight on Friday morning,1/25/19. The warrants for Roger Stone’s arrest were served by FBI officers in NINETEEN VEHICLES. SOME OF THE OFFICERS WERE WEARING RIOT GEAR AND CARRYING LONG GUNS. A HELICOPTER WAS HOVERING OVER THE BOAT DOCK ON THE RIVER BEHIND HIS HOUSE! AND CNN WAS COVERING IT AND BROADCASING IT LIVE (BUT CNN DENIED BEING TIPPED OFF IN ADVANCE?)! The alleged crimes Stone was charged with all happened after the 2016 election and had nothing to do with the election, including allegedly lying to Congress? A number of recognized legal experts have stated publicly that this raid is absolutely unprecedented in America! Pam Bondi, former Attorney General of Florida said in a Fox News interview that she had worked as a prosecutor since she was in her 20’s, had been on raids where dangerous career criminals with multiple outstanding warrants were taken into custody, and she had never seen anything like the Mueller raid. Greg Jarrett, Fox News legal analyst said the same thing. Alan Dershowitz, a former Constitutional law professor, practicing attorney, author of many books about the Constitution and American legal system, and a hard Left Liberal, said the same thing. He reiterated that everything Stone was charged with allegedly happened after the 2016 election and had nothing to do with the election! Several of the legal experts came to the conclusion that this raid was Mueller sending a message to the world that he can and will do this to anyone he chooses, and that he is invincible (subordinate to NO ONE). If there was any doubt about this conclusion, leaking it to CNN in advance and letting them send a reporter and camera crew to report on the raid, as it was happening is proof that this conclusion is undeniable. Mueller deliberately made the raid be extreme and public! One of the legal experts noted that this kind of thing happens in other countries that are ruled by dictators, NOT in America! A final note on what makes this raid so un-American is that the judge that Stone appeared before after his arrest released him on “his own recognizance” (he was allowed to sign his own bail and did not have to post bond). This is a clear indication that the normal procedure would have been to notify Stone, through his attorney, that he was being ordered to voluntarily surrender to authorities at the appointed time and place. Not execute a raid of any kind.
  • Nancy Pelosi is also acting as if she is so powerful she has become invincible! She cancelled the President’s scheduled “State of the Union” speech, in writing! She agreed to reschedule the speech at a time of her choosing. She has repeatedly refused to even discuss the President’s border security plans and continues to do so. When asked recently by a reporter if she was willing to negotiate on a new border security plan she angrily replied, “have I not made my position on border security clear?”. She even refuses to acknowledge that her inflexible “no barriers stance” is in direct contradiction to her long public record of supporting border walls (and her state already has a wall)!
  • When the President agreed to sign a new bill reopening the government, based on a number of Democrats verbally agreeing (some publicly) to negotiate on a border security plan that did include barriers in some places, Pelosi and Schumer immediately held a joint press conference. In the press conference they gleefully declared total victory over the President and denigrated him in the worse possibly ways. Schumer even said twice that he, “hoped the President had learned his lesson and would not make the same mistake again”!
  • When a reporter recently asked Pelosi about the President having special legal protections while he was in office, she angrily denied that he does. One more example of the Left openly ignoring the existence of our Constitution.


America is clearly at a “fork in the road” where there are only two possible directions we can go. If we keep going to the Left our Constitution will be shredded and America will be, “fundamentally changed” forever. Or we can demand that we go to the Right and be that “shining city on the hill” that President Reagan described and moved us toward being. I firmly believe that with our support President Trump will continue to “Make America Great Again”, in spite of the Left’s obsession with wielding complete power over everyone who does not blindly follow them!  

Can America Survive the Left’s Vicious Attacks on Our Constitution?

Early in 2008 I was talking to a friend who is as politically active as I am. We were talking about how divisive politics had become, especially on a national level. At one point during the conversation he asked me a simple question. It was, “how did we get to this place in America”. I have thought back to that conversation a number of times over the years and every time I thought that we had to be at rock bottom politically. I thought that destructive divisive politics could not possibly get any worse than they were at that time. And each time they immediately got worse! That is still true!

All day every day I see and hear things from the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and the MSM) that I have trouble comprehending. Their open hatred for “everything Trump” and his supporters is beyond description. It does not matter to the Left how much good news is available at the moment. All that matters to them is to highlight bad news for the Trump presidency, even if it is not true.

The Left has only one goal. Destroy the Trump presidency now. He cannot be allowed to still be in office on November 6, 2020! The Left is willing to pay any price to achieve that goal, even if it means the long-term destruction of America. They are the adult version of a spoiled child who deliberately breaks his favorite toy rather than share it with another child. But they claim, “Trump constantly throws temper tantrums”!

As I wrote last week, it is inarguable that the left has a detailed and carefully coordinated plan to take back the White House on November 6, 2020, if not before. They will not let anything stop them from accomplishing that goal. Nothing matters to them but having total power over and control of our government so they can make America be part of their dream of a one party “One World Order” and consolidate their power forever. Here is a small sample of the Left’s recent actions as they initiate their carefully coordinated plan to destroy the Trump presidency at any cost:

  • Nancy Pelosi informed President Trump, in writing that he could not give his annual “State of the Union” speech to Congress! This is unheard of!
  • More hard left Democrats formally announced that they were running for president in 2020. And they all had the same message. It was, “they are running because they are the only one who can fix everything that is wrong with America now and according to them it is all Trumps fault”. Every Democrat that could find a TV camera and microphone during the three-day MLK weekend specifically attacked Trump in very nasty ways. Candidates Biden, Sanders, Harris, Booker, Gillibrand and others like Representative Clyburn said that Trump was racist, a pathological liar, and could not be trusted in any way. The head of the Democratic Caucus, Hakeem Jeffries went even further when he said, in front of cameras and a microphone on MLK day, that Trump was the Grand Wizard of the KKK and the White House was now the KKK headquarters!  Alyssa Milano joined in the KKK references when she tweeted that “MAGA hats are the new white hood”.
  • At the RNC winter meeting there was an attempt to introduce a resolution as part of the party’s platform that President Trump’s bid to be re-elected on November 6, 2020 be unopposed on the Republican party ticket. I never thought that I would see something like this be an issue at the RNC! This is unheard of!
  • Alan Dershowitz, a former constitutional law professor and lifelong liberal Democrat recently published a long and detailed book titled, “The Case Against The Democratic House Impeaching Trump”. It was a legal analysis of our Constitution regarding impeaching a U.S. president. He lives in ultra-liberal Martha’s Vineyard. He openly contributed to Hillary’s campaign, campaigned for her and brags about voting for her. But as a result of him publishing this book he and his wife are being shunned by former friends and neighbors. Some former friends have publicly said that they would not attend any event if he was going to be there! He is also getting death threats!
  • The Left is refusing to consider any form of new wall being built on our southern border and is demanding that ICE be abolished. Their reasoning is that a wall is ineffective and immoral, and ICE is mistreating immigrants, especially children. A very brave and enterprising reporter took a film crew inside an immigrant child care facility in Broward county Florida. When she made her report after the visit she was furious with the Left’s outright lies about how ICE is mistreating immigrant children. She went into great detail about how well equipped and staffed the facility was. She even compared it to schools in minority areas, including the schools she went to when she was growing up and in college. At this point she became so angry that she actually began to use expletives to describe the Left’s lies about how bad the ICE facilities are! She angrily said that every child in America deserved to have their schools and home be as good as this ICE facility! I am sure the MSM will bury this report.

And then we had the Buzzfeed article claiming that President Trump told Cohen to lie when he testified under oath about Trump’s alleged plans to build a hotel in Russia and his alleged Russia connections. As soon as this hit the internet the Left went completely off the rails in their excitement about finally having a way to impeach and maybe even jail Trump. Even after the Mueller team made a public statement that this was NOT TRUE, the Left refused to “let it go”. While this was happening a number of Conservatives pointed out this was a perfect example of how unreasonable and irrational the Left’s hatred is for Trump. Several of these people noted that the Left’s hatred for Trump was so bad that they always rush to believe anything bad about Trump, and then refuse to acknowledge any corrections of that information proving it to be false.

I firmly believe that this is what the Left plans to do all day every day until the Trump presidency is destroyed, or until November 6, 2020. As I have written in the past, the Left sees the Trump presidency as a death sentence to their power and their dream to “fundamentally change America”. However, I see so much GOOD happening in America now and President Trump being so strong and determined to fulfill his promises to his supporters that we will win this battle for America.

Buckle Your Seat Belts! The Left is Going to Make Every Day from Now Until the November 6, 2020 Election a Very Rough Ride!

In his book “SPYGATE” Dan Bongino said that there are two different reasons the Left wants the Trump presidency destroyed. These two reasons are:

  • The Democrats because, “they do not want Barack Obama’s policies reversed, and they don’t wish Trumps victory to be a repudiation of his presidency. They want Obama’s legacy preserved unblemished”. 
  • The Never Trump (RINO) Republicans because, “they want the power he took by becoming the unlikely president “of the people” returned to the safe keeping of the establishment class”.

I believe that Bongino’s analysis was correct initially, but it has gone way past that now!

Every day it becomes more obvious that the left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) have become so desperate to destroy the Trump presidency they do not have any limits on what they will say or do. They are not satisfied with the possibility of beating him in the November 2020 election. They will never admit it, but if his presidency does survive until November 2020, they will not be able to beat him in that election. If the Left does not succeed in their frantic efforts to destroy his presidency before the November 2020 election President Trump will be re-elected, and the Left will not win a national election for many years to come! The Left will never admit this, but they know it!

The Left is so consumed with destroying the Trump presidency that it is the only thing they are focusing on, and any pretense of them exhibiting any morality, ethics or integrity in their actions no longer exist. They are also very organized and inflexible in all their efforts to achieve this goal. Here are a few recent examples:

  • They suddenly got a new talking point to denigrate the President’s demands for a wall on parts of our southern border. They are all now referring to the wall as nothing but a Trump “vanity project”.
  • They still angrily insist that the U.S. simply cannot afford to waste money on a wall. This is a ridiculous statement coming from the Left when it has a history of wasting money. Like the trillions of dollars the illegal immigrants have cost American taxpayers already and are continuing to cost us because of the lack of proper border security.
  • They still insist that the Obama Administration did not ever do anything wrong. A glaring example of this was Maria Bartiromo’s interview with a Connecticut congressman on her Sunday morning show on 1/13/2019. She asked the congressman about the Obama administration illegally obtaining FISA warrants during the 2016 presidential campaign, using those FISA warrants to illegally surveil American citizens, and then illegally unmasking a lot of those American citizens. The congressman, with a straight face, denied the warrants were illegally obtained. When Maria called him out on that blatant lie he tried to change the subject with his answer. But Maria refused to let him off the hook. She confronted him with specific details about how the DOJ and FBI misled the FISA court judges to get the warrants, and then used the FISA warrants illegally over and over again. I got so disgusted by the congressman’s behavior that I turned the TV off! This was not an isolated incident of the Left blatantly lying about the Obama administration’s illegal activities as it worked to elect Hillary.
  • The number of Democrats who are planning to run for president in the 2020 elections is literally beyond comprehension. When the number of candidates began to grow so rapidly I wondered why the party leadership, that is so inflexible and focused on its efforts to destroy the Trump presidency, was allowing this to happen? And then it occurred to me that this is by design!  With 30, 40, 50 or more prominent Democrats campaigning in the Democratic presidential primary they will overwhelm all the media in America. Especially with the MSM’s open hatred for President Trump and his supporters. As I thought about this it occurred to me that this is a brilliant anti-Trump strategy. With this many people campaigning on the national stage they will dramatically reduce President Trump’s visibility in the media. They will also overwhelm the national media with constant attacks on the Trump administration. It does not matter to the Democrats which one of their candidates wins the primary as long as they all focus on attacking Trump and do not attack each other. This strategy also has the added benefit of showcasing to the general public how deep the Democratic party’s pool of powerful and well qualified people is (powerful and well qualified by their hard-Left standards). And the candidates have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Even when all but one loses the primary they all will walk away with overflowing campaign war chests. This is money that they can spend just about any way they want to in the future, and they will have a huge boost in name recognition on the national level. Only time will tell if the party leadership can keep them all focused on attacking Trump and not each other?
  • And then you have the never-ending Trump Russia investigation! While this alleged collusion was happening, with no proof of criminal behavior what so ever uncovered so far, the Obama administration was openly meddling in elections in other countries on a regular basis! And they were doing this with U.S. taxpayer money and U.S. taxpayer funded staff! This was being done through a little-known U.S. government agency that is part of our State Department, “USAID” (United States Agency International Development). From 2012 to 2016 this agency gave Soros’ Open Society Foundation almost five million dollars to fund its operations in Macedonia named “Open Society Foundation – Macedonia”. This is just one glaring example of the Obama administration’s constant meddling in other countries’ politics, using U.S. tax payer dollars!

It is obvious that the Left’s singular objective from now until the November 2020 elections is to drown out any and all GOOD news from the Trump administration and replace it with their propaganda. I think the Left is totally underestimating President Trump and all his middle America supporters!

Why Does the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) No Longer Feel the Need to Hide Its Anti-American Agenda?

I repeatedly asked myself this question over the last few months as I watched the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans and MSM) publicly and loudly display their anti-American agenda. Every time I log into the internet or turn on the TV I see or hear someone on the Left ranting about how bad things are in America and insisting that their way is the only way to fix everything that is wrong in America. (Definition of rant: speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way). As the volume and intensity of the rants increased over the last few months I increasingly asked myself several questions:

  • Does the Left really believe what they are saying is true?
  • Does the Left really believe that the majority of the people in America are so uninformed, naive or self-centered that they believe that the Left’s rants are true?
  • And even more importantly, what is happening in America now that is so bad? As I look past the rants and the fake news I see more good things happening in America, and the world than I have seen for many years!

Here are a few examples of the most recent rants:

  • After being sworn in on her first day in Washington new Congress woman Rashida Tlaib spoke at a rally organized by moveon,org. While speaking she repeated a conversation she had with her young son after winning her congressional race in November. She said that she told her son that she was going to Washington to “impeach the mother f…..”! This was a conversation she had with her young son and she repeated it while speaking into a microphone at a public rally in front of cameras. And the crowd roared in approval! After publicly refusing to apologize she posted a picture of herself on social media with the Palestine flag!
  • Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the 29 year old new Congress woman from NY has been in front of ever TV camera and microphone that she can find ranting about her plans to dramatically raise taxes in America to help pay for her totally socialist agenda. Her agenda includes free health care and college tuition for everyone. She also wants to eliminate the use of fossil fuels in America. She has become so popular with the Left that the MSM has given her a special pet name, “AOC”.
  • When he was sworn in to his 3rd term as NY Governor, Andrew Coumo gave an impassioned speech about everything his administration plans to do in his new term in office. In the speech he took a direct shot at President Trump and his supporters when he said, “we are going to build infrastructure not walls” and that everyone was “welcome in America”
  • Tom Steyer, a Silicon Valley billionaire is continuing his 100-million-dollar TV advertising campaign demanding that President Trump be removed from office now, not voted out in 2020. He just announced that he is going on a fact-finding trip to Iowa indicating that he is considering running for president in 2020. At last count that brings the official number of people who are “considering running as a Democrat in 2020 to somewhere around 40, and they all have one thing in common. That is an obsessive hatred for President Trump and his supporters.
  • On his first official day back in Washington Al Green from Texas co-authored a new bill to impeach President Trump.
  • Congressman Nadler from NY, the new chairperson of the House Judiciary committee, held a press conference before Presidents Trump’s oval office address. During the press conference he ranted about Trump being such a liar that there should be a banner running across the screen while Trump was speaking warning everyone who watched that everything Trump was saying was a lie. He joined the MSM’s demand that President Trump’s planned speech be released prior to it being broadcast so it could be “vetted by the media prior to it being broadcast”.
  • The Left demanded that they be given equal time immediately after the oval office address so they could rebut Trump’s lies. The MSM quickly agreed and scheduled time for Pelosi and Schumer to speak live. In the speech they demanded that President Trump agree to reopen the government now without anything in the budget for border security, ”then we can talk about border security”. This is the new Democratic talking point intended to take the focus off their role in the shutdown.
  • NY mayor De Blasio held a press conference where he announced his plans to offer free Medicare for anyone in New York city that needed it.
  • When he was sworn in as the next governor of California Gavin Newsom announced that California was going to, “offer sanctuary for everyone”. He has been involved in politics in California his entire adult life. He is also Nancy Pelosi’s nephew. 
  • It is interesting to note that many of the people on the Left who are the most outspoken against any form of a physical “barrier” at the border live in private gated communities or condos with armed security controlling access to the property. A perfect example of this is Maxine Waters who lives in a multi-million dollar home in a private gated community that is not in her district. With the unemployment rate in her district at 22% it seems to me that is what she should be focusing on rather than open borders?

As noted above this is just a small sample of the Left’s recent rants about “everything Trump”. While all this is happening I have not seen or heard a single person on the Left acknowledge that there is anything good happening in America? The GOOD list is also very long, but just two things at the top of the list are all we need to see to prove that President Trump’s actions and policies are “Making America Great Again”. The two things are:

  • The Labor Participation Rate in America now is the best it has been for decades.
  • Annual income in America is up 3.2%, which is higher than our current inflation rate.

These two things together are undeniable proof that a larger percentage of our population is working in America now than has been for decades, and they are making more money.

In addition to these two key economic indicators, there is something else that proves President Trump’s policies and actions are “Making America Great Again”. America is now the world’s largest oil and gas producer! And what really makes this special is that while accomplishing this America met the goals set for it in the Paris Climate Accord! 

While all these good things are happening in America the Trump Administration also got new (much more favorable trade agreements) with Mexico and Canada.  And China is at the trade agreement negotiating table NOW, and all indications are that is going in our favor too! The new trade agreement with China will be part of the new trade agreements we will have in place of the disastrous planned TPP agreement that the Obama Administration had negotiated with that part of the world. Note: Regarding the Obama proposed TPP agreement I used the word “negotiating” very loosely.

As I sit here and look at the two extremely different world views I have described it is obvious to me that the Left has dramatically increased its “everything anti-Trump” rants. The more President Trump accomplishes, the more frantic the Left becomes in its efforts to destroy his Presidency! This is happening because the Left knows that every campaign promise that President Trump fulfills reduces their “POWER” and consequently reduces their ability to destroy our Constitution and make America be part of their dream of a “One World Order”.

This week I read Laura Ingraham’s book, “Billionaire at the Barricades” subtitled, “The Populist Revolution From Reagan to Trump”. It is a long and fascinating book that details the history of the Republican party and American politics from Reagan to Trump. She is an excellent writer, commentator and has a remarkable resume. In one of the last chapters there is one sentence that “jumped off my iPad” as I read it. It was, “The Left hates Trump and Republicans”. I am sure that in this case she was referring to real Republicans, not RINO Republicans. She is so right! I firmly believe that we are at a point in America where the Left has decided that the Trump Presidency cannot be allowed to survive! But, as I wrote last week, I am confident that President Trump will out work and out last all of his attackers and “Make America Great Again”!

Why Does the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans, and MSM) Hate America so Badly?

As I watched and listened to the Left during the holidays, I was constantly reminded of how much open hatred the Left has for President Trump and America. As President Trump approaches his second year anniversary in office the hatred toward him is so bad that the haters no longer appear to be rational. It is obvious that the haters have reached a point where they will say and do anything to hurt America in their efforts to destroy the Trump presidency. The only thing that appears to matter to these people is POWER, and they see President Trump as a threat to their agenda and therefore their personal power. Based on what we are seeing and hearing from the Left now, it is going to be a nasty 23 month run up to the next elections!  Here are a few examples:

  • New York city’s incoming Attorney General has threatened President Trump and his family members with legal warfare. She made a public announcement that she will, “use every area of the law to investigate the president and his family”. She publicly declared that she would use her new elected office to destroy the Trump presidency and his family!
  • Elijah Cummings, who will now be the chairperson of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has already sent 51 separate letters to the White House demanding documents and information on a wide range of White House policies and actions.
  • Maxine Waters, who will now be the Chairperson of the House Banking and Finance Committee, is still screaming “Impeach, Impeach, Impeach”. She has publicly promised that as soon as she officially becomes the chairperson she will use her power to, “crack down on America’s banks” (whatever that means?). If you have ever watched her behavior during a congressional hearing you would swear that she is functionally illiterate and unstable. Years ago I watched segments of a committee hearing, before our banking system did crash, where banking regulators were testifying about the possibility of a banking system crisis based on the Federal Government’s enforcement of bank lending policies at the time. Maxine literally jumped up out of her chair and screamed at the regulator that was testifying. She screamed that, “we will nationalize this thing” (whatever that meant?).  She was so irrational that the other Representatives sitting around her could not resist laughing at her. When our banking system did crash she illegally funneled government bank bailout money to a California bank that she and her husband owned stock in, and he was on the Board of Directors. She does not even live in her district. She lives in a private gated community that is not in her district!
  • As of January 3,2019 every U.S. House of Representative’s committee chairperson will be a Democrat, like Cummings and Waters. That means they will have a majority vote on their committees and will totally control what the committees do or do not do. And every one of them has declared that they will use the committees to destroy the Trump presidency.
  • The border patrol just issued a report that between December 22nd – 31st,  2018 they took 451 people into custody on our southern border that required immediate medical attention. 19 required hospitalization. 259 were children. Their illnesses included various forms of the flu, and phenomena. During this ten day period there has been a constant stream of people on the Left, including RINO Republicans making public statements against President Trump’s demands for a wall on portions of our southern border. They are publicly using words like “immoral, archaic, medieval, too costly, and ineffective” to describe it? They are even declaring the “majority of Americans do not want a wall built on our southern border”. They are all claiming this last statement was based on “recent surveys”. However everyone that I have spoken too since I started hearing the Left make this declaration thinks it is a deliberate fabrication. “Irrational” is the only word I can think of to describe what they are saying, and they are insulting everyone in middle America by expecting us to believe this! The Left is obviously reading published Democratic leadership talking points.
  • Incoming RINO Republican Senator Mitt Romney recently published a nasty op-ed in the Washington Post about the Trump Presidency and President Trump personally. In the op-ed Romney said things like “Trump’s shortfall set a poor example for America’s public character, while alienating U.S. allies”. Romney has even let it be made public that he is considering running against President Trump on the Republican ticket in 2020. Challenging a sitting President in your own party in a presidential election is unheard of! To say that I am disappointed in a man I once admired and supported is an understatement!
  • Another really disappointing RINO is John Kasich from Ohio. He is another person that I admired and supported in the past. He was elected to congress, worked on wall street, got elected as governor of Ohio, and re-elected in a predominantly Democratic state. And then along came Donald Trump. Kasich led the charge from the other Republican candidates demanding that Trump publicly take the oath to support the winner of the Republican presidential primary, no matter who it was. When Trump won the primary Kasich was the first person to publicly denounce his pledge and even tried to mount a 3rd party campaign to run against Trump. This would have guaranteed a Hillary victory. Kasich is also saying publicly that he is considering running against Trump in the 2020 Republican presidential primary!
  • Another RINO who is making a complete fool of himself publicly is Jeff Flake from Arizona. He is “retiring” from the senate (he would have lost his re-election bid badly due to his anti-Trump actions during the 2016 campaign). He spent his last days in the senate openly saying and doing everything he could to hurt the Trump agenda, including helping block Trump appointees to federal judgeships and the Trump administration. Yes, after two years in office President Trump still has unfilled positions in his administration and federal courts. But, with the help of RINO’s, led by McCain, the senate literally rushed to approve Obama’s appointees as quickly as possible. McCain even made a public statement to the MSM that, “President Obama deserved to have who he wanted in his administration”. Note, this is why there are so many Obama supporters still working in federal government positions and doing everything they can to disrupt the Trump agenda! RINO Flake has also stated publicly that he is, “considering running against President Trump in the 2020 Republican presidential primary”.

It appears that the original Trump disease, “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has morphed into an irrational open hatred for everything Trump. This does not bode well for America or the world. But I still think that President Trump will out work and out last all the haters, and 2019 will be another good year to be an American!

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!
