We Didn't Elect a Pope, We Elected a Leader

With all the pious whining about the crudeness of Pres. Trump's speech, you'd think the Democrats would reflect upon their own crude members, including JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters, Al Franken, Al Sharpton, Harvey Weinstein etc., all who who have used crude words, phrases and actions in the course of their public and private lives. Pres. Trump is a down-to-earth “blue collar” billionaire who says what's on his mind without a “crudeness” filter. In other words, you get what you see and hear, and remember, we didn't elect a Pope, we elected a leader.

The unrelenting anti-Trump news media and disgruntled Democrats, who still can't believe that their flawed candidate, Hillary Clinton, didn't win the presidency, will jump on anything Pres. Trump says or does and spin it it in a negative way to try to diminish him in the eyes of the public. This phony “selective” outrage over his behavior is becoming quite apparent as the rhetoric against Pres. Trump continually goes “over the top”. In their eyes, he can't do anything right. I believe that if Pres. Trump came down from the Mount with 10 Commandments under his arm, his vicious detractors would criticize him for not having 11 Commandments. That's how much animus has infected the media and the Democrats, it's unprecedented.

With today's instantaneous access to communications and social media, the public is inundated with stories, some true and some false, that push a particular agenda depending on a particular political viewpoint. This wasn't the case 20 or 30 years ago. A lie reported on a media site today can be sent around the world in only a few hours, and if the lie is disproven, it is very difficult to set the record straight and overcome the lie. This is what Pres. Trump faces on a daily basis. That's why he “Tweets” like he does, as the outlets for him, to defend himself, are restricted and very unfriendly.

Nobody said Pres. Trump was an “angel” in his personal and professional life , but when his detractors criticize him constantly with overtly personal attacks, they forget that his actions speak louder than his words. With all the negative press Pres. Trump received during his 1st year in office, he has racked up an impressive record of achievements, which seem to be hidden by the news media on purpose. Starting with his unlikely election (over 90% of the media thought he'd lose) win over Hillary Clinton; he first off appointed a true conservative judge to the Supreme Court in Neal Gorsuch; he rescinded many business killing restrictions that the Obama administration put in place; he untied the military's hands in fighting ISIS which has now resulted in decimating ISIS in both Iraq and Syria; he has encouraged companies to return to the U.S., thereby creating more jobs (over 2 million jobs have been created since Trump took office); he approved the Keystone and Dakota pipelines to make us more energy independent from the rest of the world; the unemployment rate is the lowest in decades; and his greatest achievement of all, was the passage of the largest tax cut and reform of our tax code in our country's history, which has triggered the stock market to reach an all-time high. These are “wins” the “fake media” doesn't play up and report on.

As the headline of this editorial states, we didn't elect a Pope, we elected a leader who is fulfilling his promises and the expectations of the people who voted for him, even with a chorus of detractors nipping at his heels in a constant barrage of negative comments trying to undermine his presidency.

MORT’s meanderings

The Cheap Suit Complex.
At what point did Republicans let themselves come apart like a cheap suit when being confronted by loud, bullying Democrats?

Democrats, that is those whose idea of engaging in polite political discourse is to shout down any opposing viewpoints and resort to name-calling right from the get-go, take particular delight in intimidating more peace-loving Republicans.

Typically over the past several decades Republicans have been more likely to avoid the onslaught of bellicose ‘Progressives’ by simply burying their chins in their chests.  The more genteel folks of a conservative bent, do not enjoy engaging in shout sessions.  If they engage in controversial politics (Are there any other kind?) at all, it is likely to be in a more conversational tone.  Hence, political discussions heretofore, have customarily been dominated by the loud & the profane. I cannot recall any Republicans or Conservatives being called loud & profane.

Republicans seem all too willing to accept blame for Government shutdowns or anything else that the loud & profane Democrats care to assign to them.  One wonders when the increasing number of veterans of our Armed Forces who have been elected to the Congress – or are seeking election – will manifest the courage to confront and beat down the loud & profane bellicose ‘Progressives’.  The term ‘Progressive’ is a misnomer if ever there was one.  Every effort to scoff at laws that are on the books; every effort to denigrate the principles upon which this nation was founded; every slur upon our history, heritage & traditions can be laid directly at the feet of the disgustingly delusional & corrupt, tax & spend Democrats.  They exist solely to gain office so that they can control everyone and everything.  Their M.O. is to out-shout all opposition and when possible, to destroy anyone and anything that they find in their path to dominate the Federal Government.
Care to argue with any of the above?

The “Collusion Delusion”

After over a year of investigating Pres. Trump for collusion with the Russians, nothing has been found to justify the narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians (zero, nada, nil). During the past year three members of the Obama security team, John Brennan, James Clapper, and James Comey, all said that they found no evidence that during the presidential campaign, and during the transition, that the Trump people or Trump colluded with the Russians. When Trump won the election (against all odds), the cry of the astounded Democrats was that it was impossible that Trump, a political neophyte, should've or could've won the election fair and square. They came up with the phony charge that the Trump team must have colluded with the Russians in efforts to undermine the Clinton campaign. There was no proof then, only assumptions, and there has been no proof now, even after one year, that the Russians colluded with Trump. The whole thing is a “collusion delusion”.

It seems that the Democrats and the “Never-Trumpers” (including some disgruntled Republicans), are throwing anything up against the wall hoping that something negative about Trump and his administration will stick, and which might then lead to his impeachment or resignation from office.

The only Russian collusion was not perpetrated by Trump, it was really perpetrated by Pres. Obama, Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Starting with the ridiculous “reset” button that Clinton used as a P.R. stunt with the Russians; the comment made to the Russian president by Pres. Obama, that after his re-election (in 2012) he would have more flexibility in dealing with the Russians; the signing off on the Uranium One deal by Hillary and Obama's other cronies, which turned over 20% of our uranium deposits to the Russians; to the fact that her husband, former president Bill Clinton, got a $500,000 speaking fee, around the time of the Uranium One deal, by a Russian bank with ties to the Kremlin, in addition to a $140 million donation to the Clinton Foundation; to the total indifference of the Obama Administration to the Russian expansion in Ukraine and the financing and the encouraging of anti-Ukraine rebels; and finally, with the payment of $12 million to the Fusion GPS group, with ties to Russian operatives, by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to get salacious and negative information against Trump. These actions show that the real Russian collusion was not with Pres. Trump, but with the Obama Administration, the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

Pres. Trump has called the whole Mueller investigation a “witch hunt”, and it looks like he was correct that this whole collusion scenario was a “put-up job” by Trump's enemies to undermine his administration, including high ranking officials in the Obama Justice Department and the FBI, two agencies that were supposed to be non-partisan and above the fray.

Now that the Trump-Russian collusion scam has turned out to be just that, the Democrats and the “Never-Trumpers” have latched onto the claim of a lack of mental capacity of Pres. Trump. It seems nothing will satisfy their addiction to bringing down Pres. Trump at any cost. The truth be damned.

Finally, the Justice Department. has started to re-open the investigation of the real scandals that have its roots in the “Washington Swamp”, the crimes committed by the Clinton's and Clinton flunky's in the government whose main job this past year was the undermining of the Trump Administration. Let's hope the Republicans do not get cold feet and that they continue to root out the “deep state” operatives that have caused so much division in our our government and in the politics of the country.

The “Collusion Delusion” hopefully will pass against Pres. Trump and will show that the real collusion with the Russians was between the Obama Administration, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the DNC.

Being an American is What You Contribute to Becoming One; Not How Much You Can Squeeze Out of It

Democrats a.k.a. sleeper socialists, have a myopic deficiency
differentiating their view between legal and illegal.
Perhaps I can offer some assistance so that they may not look
so ignorant when presenting their case about DACA/Dreamers
and any other immigration discrepancies.

If a person has a savings or checking account in a bank, he or
she is legally able to make a withdrawal, depending on how much
money was deposited.

If a stranger goes to the same bank and takes money from it at
gunpoint, this is not legal.

A person born in the United States is an American. A person who
has applied for admission into the United States and after meeting
all required criteria, including swearing allegiance to it is a
naturalized citizen and an American.

Gate crashing by crossing our borders, avoiding requirements of
the law of our country, then availing themselves of entitlements
meant for our own needy citizenry is illegal. When the fact of their
illegitimacy is revealed, they resent it and take to the street in
protest, waiving the flag of the country they came from.

Our southwest contains many non- simulating, non-English speaking
barrios within sanctuary cities which contain havens for Mara
Salvatrucha 13 (MS 13) one of the most vicious gangs in our country
and the world.

They are not Americans and they will never be, because of the
circumstance of their arrival.

Being an American is what you contribute to becoming one, not how
much you can squeeze out of it.

"The Boy Who Cried Wolf"

The story of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, is one of Aesop's fables. It is a tale about a boy who gave false alarms too many times so that future true claims were disbelieved. The moral of the tale is that it shows how liars are rewarded, even if they tell the truth, no one believes them.

This tale could be used to explain what is happening in our country today.... in the irresponsible use of the term “racist” (or racism or other inflammatory terms). It seems if you are on the left side of the political spectrum, if somebody challenges your views, you immediately cry “racism”, whether it is present or not.

It seems that this highly emotional term is used to shut down debate, especially if it concerns a challenge to liberal orthodoxy or opinion. The “racial arsonists” including Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus etc. have been using this anti-free speech method of political dialogue for years in promoting their theory of “black victimology”.

It has gotten so bad that in recent years that that charge has become a hackneyed prime example of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, by using the term “racism” (or racist) indiscriminately in trying to promote their agenda of assigning guilt to others (especially others who disagree with them and especially if you are “white”).

A prime example of this highly emotional attack on free speech, is the constant attacks against President Trump by the far-left liberals (a/k/a Democrats) and some anti-Trumper Republicans. No matter what Pres. Trump says (or tweets) or does, he is accused of being a “racist” or worse (including the words Fascist, incompetent, stupid, and the ever present accusation, congenital liar). In the eyes of his enemies, he can do nothing right ( ex: if he came down from the mount with the 10 Commandments under his arm, his critics would criticize him for not having 11 Commandments). Another example of this irresponsible use of the term “racism”, was when Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D) was given a first-class plane seat, that was purchased by an “ordinary” person, by the airline company. When the person who bought the seat complained, Cong. Jackson-Lee claimed it was because she was black (i.e, racism). By the way, when the “bumped” woman first complained she didn't know who got her seat. Who in their right mind believes the congresswoman and her charge of racism?

During the debate on the Trump tax and reform bill in Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, said that passage of this bill was tantamount of being another “Armageddon” (another boy crying wolf statement). How many believed that giving 80 to 90% of taxpayers more money in their pockets would be “Armageddon”? Only die-hard anti-Trumpers and Democrats would agree with that outrageous statement by Nancy Pelosi.

So, in conclusion, the fable of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” has relevance today, especially in our political dialogue and political climate. Over-the-top criticism of your political opponents shows that the people using these highly emotional terms have not learned their lesson as set forth in Aesop's fable.
