I just have to ask, what kind of a responsible news organization publishes the transcripts of a Presidential conversation with other heads of state knowing that these transcripts were illegally released? This Trump Derangement Syndrome is really getting out of hand. Maybe it is time to resist the resistance!
There is no logical reason for it. Have you seen the “new” new Democratic platform? They rail against the evils of unrestrained capitalism, but their proposed solutions, with the exception of building the wall, are copied from the Trump playbook … only smaller-minded. How can President Trump be that evil, if they want to do what he is already doing, but on a more limited scale? If capitalism was the devil they portray it to be, they should want to take much more drastic action. Their actions and their rhetoric do not jive. And, they accuse President Trump of being unbalanced?
Despite our differences, we came together whenever the Country was threatened. What changed? We no longer have allegiance to the ideals that made our County great. The Left has worked so hard to ridicule, remove, denigrate, destroy and rebuke what it means to be an American.
The liberal-left and their media lapdogs have truly lost their minds. They have no concerns about the integrity of our government, the safety of its people, or the welfare of our Country. As long as they “resist” they think they can attack President Trump with impunity. Right or wrong … they will do it … regardless of the Constitutional, Legal, Ethical, or International consequences. It is insane! And, it is a very real threat to the American people. Let me say that again, another way … the media has indeed become the enemy of the American people. President Trump got it right
We Now Have a Criminal Mass Media
The FBI should arrest the Editor-in-Chief of the Washington Post. Charges of treason may be a bit unreachable, but knowingly releasing classified information to the public is a crime! Even if somebody else leaked it to him. Let him sweat through a few FBI interrogations. Maybe some of this insane, and illegal, leaking of classified information will stop
Democrats totally ignore the many good things the President has already done. I think it is simply because they cannot get over the fact that he won. They somehow cannot forgive him, or themselves, for that. Furthermore, they attack his Presidency at the expense of the American people. They ignore the fact that the world is about to go up in flames. We have highly volatile situations with Russia, Iran, and North Korea, mostly because of the Marvin Milktoast policies of the former president, Barack Obama. Yet, they ignore all that so they can play “blame President Trump” and wage unrelenting war on the Trump Presidency. The really scary part is, they do it to the detriment and endangerment of us all.
Resist the Unhinged Resistance
That is what is truly unforgivable! Yes, this Administration has certainly had some issues and some shake-ups. Let us remember it is only his 8th month in office. I can remember a few other Administrations that had some shake-ups and problems as well. This situation in the media is very much like the Pot calling the Kettle black
In conclusion, let me just say that it may be time for President Trump’s supporters to wage a little counter-war. And, no I am not calling for violence in the streets. It is simply time for his supporters to speak up, to protest the protestors, resist the “Resist” group, and try to get a little equal time in the spotlight.
How I long for the good old days. Do you remember back when it was just so cool to scoff at any and all warnings about new American foreign policies or old potential threats by anybody who actually knew what they were talking about? I remember when highly intelligent, arrogant, Ivory Tower progressive-liberals with no real-world experience or common sense were boldly trashing the comments of anyone one who did not see things their way?
Do you remember the debate where Barack Obama haughtily “schooled” Mitt Romney about his lack of understanding of foreign policy after Romney made comments about the potential threat Russia still presented. How did that work out?
We have unresolved Russian aggression in Ukraine.
Russian bombers are currently flying missions over the Gulf of Mexico
Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua are forming stronger military ties with Russia and can provide bases for Russian combat aircraft and missiles.
I remember when George W. Bush was ridiculed for his comments about the Axis of Evil in which he included Iran, Iraq and North Korea. Today we see:
ISIS / ISIL / DAESH or whatever you want to call it … in Iraq and Syria, forming alliances and sponsoring attacks her in the U.S. Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Israel are doing their own thing … tired of waiting for the Anointed One to declare which side of the war on terror he is on. Yes …Yes … I know we are not “at war” with them, however, they are at war with us and have been since the 70s.Obama’s efforts at containment and degradation certainly didn’t stop ISIS fanatics from shooting up a cartoon contest here in the U.S. Tell me …. how do you contain a threat that recruits via twitter and Facebook?
We are facing a nuclear-armed North Korea who’s leader just executed a loyal, longtime senior member of his own government who, by the way, also loyally served his father … by shooting him with an anti-aircraft gun! And for what you might ask? Dozing off in a meeting. And this idiot is just itching for a reason to launch a missile at someone!
We have a president who is so blinded by ideology and so anxious to be seen doing something … that he is willing to sign a disastrous deal with Iran; one that we know they will not adhere to and will practically guarantee them nuclear weapons shortly after he leaves office. Iran’s leaders just keep stringing Obama and Kerry along like a couple of organ grinder monkeys! It is freaking embarrassing!
However, the real icing on the cake is this:
CNN REPORTS U.S. STRATEGY TO CONTAIN ISIS SEEMS TO BE UNRAVELING.
Don’t you have to have some sort of a recognizable strategy … before it can actually begin to unravel? Guess not!!
Isn’t it a wonderful life here in the U.S. of Obama? According to the Washington Post 15 Baltimore, MD neighborhoods have a lower life expectancy rate than that of North Korea! May I also point out that since 1967, Baltimore has had nothing but Democratic mayors.
On the national scene, police officers are being murdered weekly thanks to the “racial leadership” provided by Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton! I understand Al Sharpton’s daughter is suing New York City for $5 million for a sprained ankle. Must be one hell of a sprain! Hey … maybe I can get $2.5 million for my jammed finger!
Here is an interesting idea! With all the heat Jeb Bush has been taking for answering a question truthfully about whether or not he would have ordered U.S. Forces into Iraq like his brother George W. did ….. I would like to suggest a few other questions be asked as well.
For Barack Obama:
1) If you knew then what you know now about what would happen if we left Iraq too soon, would you still have pulled all American forces out of Iraq so irresponsibly and without an actual adult negotiating a status-of-forces agreement first?
Knowing full well that Obama will certainly point the finger at someone else (probably George W. Bush), the follow-up question should be:
2) When in your presidency do you actually start taking responsibility for the decisions and actions of your presidency?
Hillary Clinton, since she wants to be the “Working Peoples’ President (Gosh … that has such a Communist ring to it, doesn’t it?),’ could also be asked the first question.
Despite all this, we hear from John Kerry that we should simply be calm, we don’t have to worry! All is well. The world is safer than it has ever been! Safer though it may be, according to Kerry it is still “possible to have the kind of attack we’ve seen in Ramadi.” I feel so much better knowing that … don’t you? I am sure the 4000+ American soldiers who gave their lives in Iraq would have been so happy to hear this.
And yes, we may have to kill many more members of Daesh (or ISIS or ISIL or Islamic Terrorists or whatever the hell the name of the week is). But the question is who is going to kill them. The area surrounding the Daesh forces at Ramadi is currently filled with Iranian militia. Iran is predominantly Shia and Iraqi’s in the area are mostly Sunni. That should work out well … don’t you think? Especially with Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Israel deciding to go it alone due to their extreme lack of faith in the current American leadership!
But hey … things are going so well in the Middle East … just relax! Take a chill pill! Move to Colorado and smoke a doobie! Global Warming is a much more dangerous threat! Oh Wait … according to NASA’s records we haven’t seen any global warming in 17 years …. oops!
Strangely, I remain unconvinced! There are estimated to be between 0.7 billion (700,000,000) to 1.9 billion (1,900,000,000) Muslims in the world. This is 25% of the world’s population or 1 in 4. There are estimated to be around 9.9 million (9,900,000); about 3.75 % of the total US population.
According to ACT! for America’s president and founder Bridgett Gabriel, the radicals are estimated to be between 15 to 25 percent of the Muslim population… at least according to all intelligence services around the world,” That means we are looking at 105 million to 475 million people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization. However, Bridgett Gabriel is after all a favorite of conservatives who are concerned about terrorism. Therefore, we should not listen to her! A much more conservative (no pun intended) estimate put forth is .01 percent of all Muslims being radicalized. I feel much better now. After all, that is only 7,000,000 to 19,000,000 people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization! We should all sleep much better at night knowing that!
Still waiting for all those moderate Muslims to stand up and shout … “Not in the name of our religion!!”
