Paging Robert Mueller…, paging Robert Mueller…, are you there Mr. Mueller?

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his “SWAT” (Search for Whatever Against Trump) team, has been missing in action for quite a while now.

Are you still out there chasing your Trump Russian collusion fantasy?

Or maybe it’s your Trump obstruction of justice fantasy?

Or maybe you’re just trying to scrape up anything on anybody who has ever come in contact with President Trump?  Ya, that’s probably it.

Hey…, whatever happened to all of that hoopla surrounding President Trump’s old lawyer anyway?  It would be a shame to let that FBI raid of his home and office go to waste.

You mean to tell us that you can’t even come up with anything against The President with all of those unethical, and probably illegal, recordings between The President and his attorney?

That’s pretty sad on your part.

You know, there’s only like three weeks until the midterm election.  “The swamp” could sure use a little help anytime now.

Then there are all of your followers and supporters who have so willingly bought into your witch hunt, Mr. Mueller.  They are desperately expecting you to ride in on your white horse and save the liberal day with a plethora of criminal indictments in your slimy hands.

I’m predicting you’ll be huge disappointment to your horde of hopefully ignorant groupies in that regard.

Rod Rosenstein has done an admirable job of buying you time, but it will probably end up costing him his job.  And Jeff Sessions effectively neutered himself regarding this whole situation.  I expect his head will be on the chopping block soon after the midterms as well.

You, then, Mr. Mueller, and your motley crew, will be the next to go.

What an incredible waste of time and money.

We really have no choice but to classify you and your efforts as historic failures, at least in the eyes of “the swamp” and pathetically gullible lefties everywhere.

To the rest of us, you’re just an ill-intentioned tool…, and a loser.

WINNING!

Oh, hey, Bob…, and weren’t you the FBI Director when terrorists attacked us on 9/11?  Your incompetence and ineptitude were on full display for all to see during that historic and epic failure as well.

This kind of track record will only earn you brownie points with the liberal History professors throughout the country, as they spin their twisted view of history to present to their students.  Or, they just may choose to leave you out of their view of history altogether.

You’re not only a lefty loser, you’re a disgrace to American patriots everywhere.

Picture me dropping the mike.

Mueller-Nothing

 

Kanye West pushes Trump’s support among African-Americans North, while sending the democrat narrative and ideology South. 

Kanye West and Jim Brown stopped by The White House, last Thursday, October 11, 2018, after being invited by President Trump, for lunch and to discuss prison reform, jobs for African-Americans and Chicago violence.  It turned into an impromptu press conference with the three men.

West began the much-anticipated sit-down by praising Trump’s efforts in North Korea saying, “On day one you solved one of [Obama’s] biggest troubles.”

The conversation turned to West discussing the lack of support he received from his Hollywood cohorts with regards to his support of the president.

“They tried to scare me to not wear this hat,” West said, referring to his “Make America Great Again” hat he wore to the meeting and on a recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

“When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman, my favorite superhero. You made a Superman cape for me.”

The rapper went on to chastise “SNL” and other liberal-leaning media members for their portrayal and constant demeaning of President Trump.

“What I need ‘SNL’ and liberals to improve on is, if he don’t look good, we don’t look good.  This is our President!” West said.

Regarding Chicago’s gun violence problems, “Illegal guns is the problem, not legal guns, we have the right to bear arms,” West said bluntly.

Trump continued to compliment the West, who talked about spreading love throughout the country.

“He can speak for me any time he wants, he’s a smart cookie,” President Trump said. “He gets it.”

West discussed many topics that included everything from bringing manufacturing back to our country, his personal business deals, ending the “stop-and-frisk” policy in Chicago and the 13th Amendment (the amendment that abolished slavery).

Kanye said his 10 minute speech was “from the soul, and I just channeled it.”

“That was quite something,” said President Trump, who was joined in the Oval Office by Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown, who smiled and sat quietly through most of event.

Kanye clearly came to the White House with a lot on his mind, chiefly his support for the president.

“I had the balls to put on this hat,” Kanye said in defending the red “Make America Great Again” hat that he wore for the meeting.

“People expect that if you’re black you have to be a democrat,” he said. “What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, what I need the liberals to improve on is if he don’t look good, we don’t look good,” Kanye said, gesturing at Trump.

West said that when he tells liberals that he likes Trump, they tell him, “Oh, but he’s racist.” His voice rising, West said, “You think racism can control me?  That don’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.”

Before they adjourned for a roasted chicken lunch, Kanye stood up, walked over to Trump and gave him a bear hug.

“I love this guy right here. Let me give this guy a hug,” he said.

President Trump responded by saying, “That’s really nice. That’s from the heart.”

During lunch they discussed prison reform, the African American unemployment rate and the surge in violence in West’s hometown of Chicago, according to a statement from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Kanye West and Jim Brown are two amazing individuals.

They ignore and wade through all of the pretentious static from the left, while following their own minds in the pursuit of making our country better and the lives of many African-Americans better.

They understand that President Trump isn’t just in this for a photo-op or to blow smoke.  He is a person that actually produces results and gets things done.

When asked if he would run for president, Kanye West replied, “Only after, 2024.”

“Let’s stop worrying about the future…, all we have is today,” West added. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now.”

Afterwards, standing in front of the White House, where he met with President Trump, Jim Brown was asked about the issue of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem, and he had a red-blooded American response.  “That flag is my flag … I don’t think that we should take knees in protest instead of be standing up for our flag.”

“I can be very blunt about taking a knee.  See, first of all, I’m an American.  That flag is my flag.  Things that I’ve overcome in this country have allowed me to make me a better person.  I don’t think that we should take knees in protest instead of be standing up for our flag.  I think we should work out our problems as a family. And that’s what I would advocate to my children and to all the young people that I deal with.”

Brown concluded by saying, “I am an American. That flag is my flag. And I want to represent it that way.”

Brown added before he left that he felt, “Their White House visit was very positive,” and that he had “zero regrets about the Oval Office meeting today with President Trump and Kanye, saying “it was an incredible opportunity and he’s thankful to 45.”

The “biased fake news media,” and other liberal entertainers, of course, could not help themselves, and they had to attack the meeting, Kanye West and President Trump.

Saturday Night Live wasted no time, creating a parody of the meeting as well.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo said, “Trump looked like he was thinking racist thoughts while talking to Kanye West.”

What?  What is he talking about?  Did Cuomo ever make any similar comments when President Obama sat down and had a beer with the white police officer he had previously bad mouthed and offended?

Do you hear crickets?  I do.

Cuomo also criticized the media for giving the meeting all the hype that they did, acting like it was an important summit between two world leaders.

They covered the meeting, like they should have.  All of the “summit between world leaders” stuff is all in your imagination Chris.

“Why fan the flames of the foolish?” he then asked.

Don’t even get me started about “fanning the flames of the foolish.”  CNN has a long and undistinguished track record for dragging a laundry list of fools onto its stage for commentary.

Cuomo then accused the president of not caring about West’s wellbeing.  “He’s just concerned about getting his black approval numbers above a pathetic 10 percent.”

Wow!  CNN should market Cuomo as the next “Long Island Medium!”  Although I think he’s pretty low on that 10 percent black approval number.

CNN host Don Lemon went on a 5-minute tirade against President Trump for hosting the rapper in the Oval Office with a room full of cameras on Thursday.  He accused the president of “exploiting” West and said that the rapper put on a “minstrel show” for Trump.

A “minstrel show?”  No racist intonations there!

Lemon asked people to imagine if President Barack Obama had Kanye West in the Oval Office what the reaction to that would be by networks like FOX News.

Ya, think about it.  I don’t think anyone would really have cared, considering how Obama loved to regularly rub elbows with his entertainment and Hollywood friends.

The “CNN Tonight” host said the media needs to take the cameras away from West because the man is in need of mental help and it is obvious that he needs a father figure. Lemon said West’s mom is “rolling over in her grave” right now. He said he spoke to a family friend who said West’s late mother would be “terribly disturbed” by this.

Wow!  Another contender for the CNN’s version of the next “Long Island Medium!”

“He needs a father figure,” Lemon suggested. “He needs someone to help him and to guide him and he needs a hug more than anything.”

Can these guys get anymore disparaging and denigrating?

Rapper T.I., whoever he is, said Kanye was, “A puppet,” and he was “Ashamed to be associated with Kanye West.”

“Your ass kissing and bootlicking is on a whole new level, and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak an inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of all our people,” T.I. continued.

So this “T.I.” person is apparently now the spokesperson for all black people?  I was not aware of this…, but it is good to know.

“If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor,” T.I. concluded.

Sooo dramatic “T.I.”  Your ancestors do have a lot to cry about, but Kanye West would not be high on the list in my opinion.

“All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially done with Trump and his little cookie boy!”

He then went on to call West a “sambo” for meeting with President Trump.

Sooo patronizing T.I. and the “biased fake news media” loves to just proliferate all of this racist character assassination.

One of CNN’s contributors, Tara Setmeyer, referred to Kanye West as Donald Trump’s “token negro,” during a panel hosted by Don Lemon.  She also made some disparaging comments about his mental health.

“He’s an attention whore, like the president,” she said. “He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson.  He’s the token negro of the Trump administration.  This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously.  He clearly has issues.”

Yes, we know, Tara.  Anyone who walks off the leftist plantation will get unceremoniously attacked and shunned by the liberal propaganda machine.

Another panelist, former Congressman Bakari Sellers, used the same type of language when describing Kanye.  “Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” he said.

So, just to sum things up here, Kanye West has been called: dumb, mentally ill, a house negro, a token negro, a sambo, a puppet, a little cookie boy, a minstrel, and even a white supremacist!

Isn’t it amazing what kind of stuff CNN and its minions are able to get away with in the defense of the leftist narrative?

The left’s propagandizing and reaction to anything President Trump does is so pathetic and so predictable.

Like I have said before, we’re paying attention now “biased fake news media.”  You can say whatever you want, but we’re wise to your intentions, and you’re just basically preaching to your own confused and anti-American choir.

WINNING!

Not so fast there, Pocahontas!

Democrat Senator, Elizabeth Warren, has released DNA test results examining her possible Native American ancestry, in an apparent response to persistent criticism from President Trump and other Republicans.

The results reportedly reveal “strong evidence” the Massachusetts senator had a Native American ancestor dating back six to ten generations.

At the same time, this really only shows trace amounts of that heritage, which Republicans have charged she used to advance her career at Harvard.

According to the analysis, if Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother were Native American, she would be considered 1/32 Native American. If Warren’s ancestor date back 10 generations, she would be only 1/1,024 Native American.

“To put that in perspective, Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American,” Republican National Committee Deputy Communications Director Mike Reed said in an email, while saying this would “not give you the right to claim minority status.”

Even though Harvard used her supposed “Native American Heritage,” via their newspaper, the Harvard Crimson, as a way to show the school had a diverse faculty.

As Warren considers a presidential run in 2020, her Senate re-election campaign produced a video playing up the results.

In it, Warren says, “The president likes to call my mom a liar. What do the facts say?”

Stanford University Professor Carlos D. Bustamante replies, “The facts suggest that you absolutely have Native American ancestry in your pedigree.”

Bustamante authored the six-page report and conducted the analysis after Warren released a sample of her DNA to a private lab in Georgia over the summer.  Warren did not use a commercial service for her DNA analysis, but rather Bustamante, who is on the scientific advisory board for Ancestry.

Yes Senator Warren, we all know why you didn’t use a commercial service, but rather “a private lab” and a handpicked Stanford University professor.

How much was this private lab paid, and why was this lab selected?

How do we know whose DNA sample the lab was given?

How much was Mr. Bustamante paid for his services?

Why would a senator from Massachusetts select someone in California to do her DNA analysis?

Inquiring minds want to know this stuff Senator Warren.  We’re not as lazy and gullible as we used to be!

Bustamante found that “the vast majority” of Warren’s family tree is European, but added that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor … in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”

“Unadmixed” isn’t a word, so I’m not really sure what Bustamante is actually claiming here.

Warren has been repeatedly criticized by President Trump over her heritage claims, including last week at a rally, when he once again used his “Pocahontas” nickname for her.

“I’ve got more Indian blood in me than Pocahontas, and I have none,” Trump said. “Hey, I have high cheekbones too, maybe I’m Indian!”

Over the summer, Trump said that if Warren did mount a presidential run in 2020 and the two faced off in a general election debate, he would offer $1 million to her favorite charity on the spot if she took a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.

Senator Warren is, of course, now calling on President Trump to pay up.

She is confused as usual.

Let’s review.

President Trump said, “If Warren mounted a presidential run in 2020, and the two faced off in a general election debate, he would offer $1 million to her favorite charity on the spot if she took a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.”

First of all, Senator Warren has a long way to go to be in the position to face President Trump in a debate.  Second of all, only then would he offer the $1 million wager, and third of all, I have a feeling that before paying out the million dollars, President Trump would prefer to have her submit to a test of his liking.  For all of my liberal friends, that’s usually how it works.

I wonder what the results of an unbiased test process would be?

Do you think she’d be willing to match President Trump’s wager that she has Native American ancestry in her DNA?

Somehow I’m thinking she wouldn’t be willing to do that.

I would probably have to side with President Trump on this one!

Oh, hey, and whatever happened to the liberal concept of people identifying as whoever (or whatever) they want to identify as?  It seems like that is all going by the wayside now.  Thanks to Elizabeth Warren we’ll all end up taking DNA tests to determine what heritage we have.  We will all be judged less by the “content of our character” and more by content of our DNA.  Wasn’t that originally a concept employed by the Nazi’s?

The best way, and the real way, to increase the “minimum wage,” and wages in general.

“If socialists understood economics, they wouldn’t be socialists.” – Nobel Prize winner in economics, Friedrich Von Hayek

Amazon, the second largest private employer in the U.S. (Walmart is the largest), is raising the minimum wage for its full-time and temporary workers to $15 per hour!

Here is a list of the top employers in the United States:

Employer

Number of employees

Average annual pay

 

Walmart

2,300,000

$19,177

 

Amazon

541,900

$28,466

 

Kroger

443,000

$21,075

 

Yum! Brands (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut)

420,000

$9,111

 

The Home Depot

406,000

$21,095

 

IBM

380,000

$54,491

 

McDonald’s

375,000

$7,017

 

When we see Walmart make a similar type of move, and then the “fast food” companies, we’ll know the economy is really cooking!

According to Krystal Hu for Yahoo Finance, “The decision comes at a time when the e-commerce giant has been under mounting pressure for low wages and draconian working conditions.  Analysts see it as a good public relations move and believe the economics behind it makes sense, especially before another busy holiday hiring season.  That’s the real reason why Amazon is raising the minimum wage.”

Do we really have to look a gift horse in the mouth every time there is good news regarding the economy and the jobs outlook?  If you’re getting a sizable raise out of the blue or a new job at a higher wage, do you really care why?

The unnamed “analysts” noted here say they, “…see it as a good public relations move and believe the economics behind it makes sense, especially before another busy holiday hiring season.”

Isn’t that why most companies do what they do?  Because the economics behind doing what they are doing make sense?  Or because it is a good PR move?

What amazing insight from the “analysts” here!

“In a statement on Tuesday, Amazon admitted it has taken recent attacks into consideration. ‘We listened to our critics, thought hard about what we wanted to do, and decided we want to lead,’ said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO.”

“Senator Bernie Sanders, one of Amazon’s most prominent critics, has repeatedly called out Bezos.  Sanders said many Amazon employees are receiving federal benefits like food stamps while working for ‘the wealthiest people in the U.S.’ Last April, he introduced a bill that called to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.”

What we see here is the model way to increase wages versus the failed, socialist way of raising wages.

In the model way, the capitalist way, the preferred way, the economy and business improve to the point where there is an increased need for workers, thus companies offer higher wages and incentives to lure them to their companies.  In an ideal situation, this compounds upon itself over and over again, constantly providing new job opportunities and higher wages.

Bernie’s way, the socialist way, arbitrarily raises wages, causing lay-offs, a loss of jobs entirely and in some cases the failure and shut down of companies and businesses altogether.

Recall the quote from our Nobel Prize winning economist at the top of this piece.

In another article by Christopher Rugaber, Associated Press economics writer, he says, “After years of sluggish pay gains, the economy may be starting to work for America’s low-wage workers.  Amazon’s announcement that it will raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour will intensify pressure on other companies to lift their pay levels as well.  Among the most likely to do so: Amazon’s rival retailers and warehouse operators, many of which are facing the prospect of staff shortages as they ramp up for the holiday shopping season.”

That’s the way it works, Bernie!  An expanding economy, because of lower taxes and lessened restrictions, eventually creates better opportunities for workers up and down the jobs ladder.

“Now, with the unemployment rate near a 50-year low and the number of job openings exceeding the number of unemployed, more lower-income Americans are finally receiving meaningful raises.”

“Accordingly, retailers, who employ a sizable share of the nation’s lower-paid workers, have been stepping up pay increases.  Average hourly wages for retail workers, excluding managers, rose 4 percent in August compared with 12 months earlier.”

Rugaber then cites someone named Marshall Steinbaum, a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute (a socialist organization).  Steinbaum says, “Now that activists have succeeded, they can now take that demand to other employers.  You say you can’t afford this, but your competitor obviously can.”

Paging Mr. Steinbaum.

Paging Mr. Steinbaum.

Your level of confusion is impressive Mr. Steinbaum.

The fact that you think “activists” had anything to do with this is quite amazing.

Let me be perfectly clear when I say…

WE CAN THANK PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS FOR THIS BOOMING ECONOMY.

PERIOD.

END OF STORY.

WINNING!

What NOT to forget about President Trump…, so far.  

As we are approaching the two year, halfway point, of President Trump’s first term in office, there are a few things we should NOT forget about our President.

Don’t forget that Donald Trump was not a politician.

Don’t forget that the primary elections and the presidential election were his first elections ever.

Don’t forget that President Trump was the underdog of ALL underdogs.

Don’t forget that nobody gave him a chance to win the presidential election in 2016, much less his party’s nomination.

Don’t forget that broadcasters and analysts regularly laughed at the suggestion that Donald Trump could become president.

Don’t forget that none of the national polls gave him any kind of chance of winning the election, or of even being close.

Don’t forget that the DNC and the “fake news” were caught feeding questions to Hillary Clinton during the debates…, with no consequences.

Don’t forget that besides the democrat party being against him, most establishment republicans were against him as well.

Don’t forget that Donald Trump basically only spent his own money on the election, while Hillary Clinton spent close to a billion dollars from foreign donors, big business donors, lobbyists and various political advocacy groups, at a margin of 10 to 1.

Don’t forget that the so-called “free press” was “all-in” on Hillary Clinton, and that 99% of their “reporting” was pro-Clinton” and “anti-Trump.”

Don’t forget that the Obama administration, the Obama “Department of Justice” and the Obama FBI, did everything they could do legally and illegally to sidetrack the Trump campaign, including spying on his campaign.

Don’t forget that Donald Trump shocked himself, Hillary Clinton, republicans and democrats, and all of the American voters, on either side, when he won the Presidency early in the morning of November 9, 2016.

Don’t forget that President Trump and his family have been under attack from liberals, the democrat party, the “biased fake news media” and most of Hollywood since day one of him winning the election.

Don’t forget that President Trump has kept many of his promises, and is working on keeping the rest.  Here is what he has managed to accomplish in his first 21 months in office:

Regarding Right to Life

President Trump has taken extensive steps to dismantle Title X of the Public Health and Human Service Act, which would prevent further funding of all programs where abortion is a method of family planning.

The reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy, allowed for an initial push to defund abortion providers.

President Trump discontinued funding the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in support of the administration’s anti-abortion policy.

The President has pushed to unite Congress around the preservation of life through the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Regarding Israel

President Trump has formally recognized Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the nation of Israel.

The relocation of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, is one more fulfilled promise to stand alongside Israel in the face of anti-Semitism across the globe.

President Trump nominated Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, a pro-Israel champion for the United States on the global stage.

The United States has pulled out of the UN Human Rights Council based on the fact that it is a poor defender of human rights.

Regarding Judicial Appointments

On January 31st, 2017, President Trump nominated constitutional originalist Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. In only his first year, Gorsuch has proven himself to be a champion of the Constitution and of religious freedom.

On July 9th, 2018, President Trump nominated Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement. Judge Kavanaugh is the best of the best, who builds consensus and decides cases based on the law, not personal policy preferences.

President Trump has the most circuit court judges confirmed of any President in their first year, and secured Justice Neil Gorsuch’s and Bret Kavanaugh’s confirmations to the United States Supreme Court.

Regarding Religious Freedom

President Trump signed the Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty.  All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall, to the greatest extent practicable and to the extent permitted by law, respect and protect the freedom of persons and organizations to engage in religious and political speech.  Merry Christmas!

Former Pro-Life Governor of Kansas, Sam Brownback, was successfully confirmed as ambassador of International Religious Freedom, which has the mission of promoting religious freedom as a core objective of U.S. foreign policy.

The Trump administration has created a Conscience and Religious Freedom Division of the Department of Health and Human Services, prioritizing the protection of religious rights of all Americans.

The President announced an Executive Order On the National Day of Prayer concerning religious freedoms which provides a greater opportunity for community building, faith-based organizations to compete for federal grants, contracts, programs and other funding opportunities.

Regarding Tax Reform

‘Historic tax cuts’ would be an understatement as the Trump administration spearheaded the successful initiative to return taxpayer dollars to the wallets of working Americans.

Commercial taxes have been slashed, allowing businesses to expand, creating jobs and giving back to their employees.

The administration doubled the standard deduction as well as doubled the child tax credit.

Regarding the Economy

Over 4 million jobs have been created under President Trump’s administration, so far.

Unemployment has fallen to 3.7% – lowest rate in 34 years.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has hit all-time highs over 70 separate times.

More regulatory restrictions have been removed than at any time in the history of our country.

African-American, Hispanic and Asian-American unemployment rates are at ALL-TIME lows.

The unemployment rate for women is at a 56 year low.

More people are working now that at any time in our nation’s history.

President Trump got us out of the unfair World Trade Organization (WTO).

President Trump declined to continue participating in The Paris Climate Accord, which unfairly limited The United States economically.

Many trade deals have been cancelled or renegotiated to be fairer, bringing many jobs back to the USA and evening the playing field regarding international trade.

Regarding Illegal immigration

His travel ban from questionable countries was finally allowed to be put in place.

Work on “the wall” has begun.

Policies have been implemented that support more active intervention by ICE and the Border Patrol.

Regarding VA Oversight

Laws were passed that allow workers in the VA system to be fired for their poor performance or poor behavior.

Laws were passed which allow veterans to seek private health care options if they are put on a long waiting list or if their care is less than satisfactory.

Regarding Combating the Opioid Crisis

The President has called a Nationwide Public Health Emergency in response to the opioid crisis.

President Trump signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis.

Resources have been allocated to states to fight drug addiction and begin rehabilitation for those who have been affected by opioid abuse.

Regarding National Security and Foreign Relations

Under the direction of President Trump, the rebuilding of the United States military has become a priority and a reality.

The President has empowered the U.S. armed forces to dismantle ISIS in the Middle East.

President Trump backed us out of the poorly conceived Iran Nuclear Deal and reinstated economic sanctions.

President Trump has taken major steps in negotiating peace on the Korean Peninsula, including getting the North Korean regime to agree to a total denuclearization of the peninsula.

President Trump has instructed the Pentagon to begin the process of establishing another branch of the service, The Space Force.

NATO nations have been pushed to pay their fair share regarding support of the organization.

Member nations of The United Nations have been put on notice that they need to increase their monetary support, as The United States will no longer carry over 80% of the institution’s weight.

 

President Trump says that he and his administration have accomplished more in the first two years of his first term than any other President in History.  I guess I would have to agree.  His list of accomplishments is long and impressive.

Don’t forget that President Trump said if he were to be elected president that there would be so much WINNING that we would get tired of it.

You were right, Sir.  There has been an incredible amount of winning, but I’m not tired of it yet!

Oh, and don’t forget that President Trump needs our support during the November midterm elections!

Imagine all that President Trump could accomplish in another two years if he would continue to have majorities in The House and the Senate!

Please get out and vote in November in support of the republicans and President Trump.

100 chance of winning

 

 

Excuse me!?  Who can’t be civil with who!?

In a recent television interview, Hillary Clinton rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach.

What!?  Wait!!!  Oh no she didn’t just go there!!

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Mrs. Clinton said.

So she apparently thinks that the left’s actions up until now have been “civil?!”

Wow.  I’m afraid to see what your idea of “uncivil” is then!

She continued by saying, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

What was all that “respecting the results of an election” stuff we heard from you in 2016 Hillary?  We realize now that liberals only respect election results when the election turns out the way they want it to.

Hillary is making these comments just as the left and their activists (many of whom we have learned are paid) have chosen to escalate their attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials by left-wing activists.

Shouldn’t we come up with a new term to identify these paid “activists?”  I don’t have any problem with people protesting, but only if it is genuine.  Paying someone to protest for you seems a bit unethical.  Maybe we should refer to these people as “political mercenaries.”  Ya, I like that.  “Political mercenaries.”

In addition, it is so typical of the left to accuse the opposition of exactly what they are doing.

Republican Senator, Cory Gardner, said Sunday his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, after Gardner voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Before and after the vote, hundreds of demonstrators (again, many paid) flooded the halls of Congress and showed up on the steps of the Supreme Court to protest Kavanaugh.

Last week, a Democratic intern Jackson Cosko, who worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, of Texas, was also arrested for posting the personal information of Republican Senators Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee, and Orrin Hatch, on Wikipedia (an on-line “public” encyclopedia), including their home addresses.

This relatively new form of political terrorism is called “doxing.”  “Doxxing is the publishing of private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.

During the Kavanaugh battle, two (paid) female activists cornered Republican Senator. Jeff Flake, in an elevator and screamed at him, with one of them repeatedly demanding he look at her as she accused him of suggesting her own sexual assault “doesn’t matter.”

And days earlier, Senator Ted Cruz, of Texas, and his wife were harassed out of a restaurant by protesters yelling at the senator with questions about Kavanaugh and chanting “we believe survivors” and “cancel Kavanaugh.”

The tactic of harassing conservative lawmakers and Trump officials out of restaurants became more prevalent in June, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were driven out of restaurants amid the backlash over the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border.

These confrontations were encouraged by democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, of California, who days later called on supporters to confront and attack Trump officials in public spaces.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she told a crowd.  She, of course, never intended her words to be taken in an “uncivil” way, right Hillary?

Where are all the examples of conservatives being “uncivil” Hillary?  Where are all of the examples of what you referred to as “a more confrontational and aggressive political approach” by conservatives?

How about one example?

This week, Republicans began pushing back against these types of tactics.

Hopefully a majority of voters will vote against the unseemly tactics that are becoming more commonplace by the left in November.

Hopefully a majority of the voters still have a sense of fairness and a sense of acceptable behavior.

New ad asks young people to “rock the vote” by NOT voting!

The ad, titled “They’re doing fine, are you?” was created as part of the “Knock the Vote” movement, started by ACRONYM, an organization that claims to be the largest digital program focused on electing Democrats to state legislative seats across the country.

Funded by that little old fascist/socialist, George Soros, no doubt.

The ad is intended to be satirical, but it is so “spot on” that I feel it rises above the satirical level into the “hysterically funny and true realm.”

Here is how the ad goes:

Older woman 1 (OW 1):  Dear young people…

Older man 1 (OM 1):  Don’t vote.

OW 2: Don’t vote.

OM 2: Everything is fine the way it is.

OW 3: Trump…, that was us.

OM 2: He’s our guy.

OM 3: Tax cuts for the rich?  Hell yeah…, I’m rich as f*ck!

OW 4: Climate change?  That’s a “you” problem.  I’ll be dead soon.

OW 1: Sure, school shootings are sad…

OW 2: …but I haven’t been in a school for 50 years!

OW 3: I can’t keep track of which lives matter.

OW 2: Sure you don’t like it…

OM 1: So, you don’t like some meme (Pronounced “meem.” A humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied, often with slight variations, and spread rapidly by Internet users) on Instagram…

OW 1: If the weather is nice, maybe you could go to one of those little marches?

OW 2: You might even share this video on Facebook…

OM 3: …but you won’t vote…

OW 4: …you young people never do.

OM 2: But I do.

OM 1: I do.

OW 2: I do.

OW 1: …midterms, primaries…

OM 2: …every single election…

OM 3: We’ll be there…, ha, ha, but you won’t.

OM 1: Because we’re a generation of doers…

OW 2: …not whiners…

OM 1: …and we’re doing great!

 

Like I said before, this ad is hilarious.  But it’s funny because it’s so true.  The creators of the ad don’t even realize that they’re probably hurting their own cause.  It’s a beautiful thing.

Young Americans have a historically low turnout for elections, even though many of them say they’ll vote beforehand, either on social media or to their friends.

Whatever the case, and whoever is trying to get whoever to do whatever, I love it.

I highly recommend you take the time to view the ad.

dear young people

 

“YAHOO,” your level of confusion is impressive.

Ok, here we go again with the “biased fake new media” anti-Trump propaganda and disinformation.

Please allow MrEricksonRules to put a couple recent articles by “YAHOO News” in the proper perspective.

Both of these articles appeared in “YAHOO’s” Finance News.

The first article was titled, “Trump amassed massive fortune through tax fraud.”

“The New York Times claims President Trump received $413 million from his father by helping him dodge the IRS.”

First of all “Yahoo Finance News,” There is a big difference between “tax fraud” and an attempt to “dodge the IRS.”

Tax fraud is illegal, while attempting to dodge the IRS is not.  Do we not all attempt to pay the least amount of taxes possible?  Do we not use any and all options out there in this endeavor?  Apparently this is a foreign concept to these “reporters,” or at least they want us to think so.

Does anyone believe that if President Trump had, sometime in the past, been guilty of tax fraud that the IRS would not have come after him?

Exactly.  Case closed, and once again the failing New York Times goes barking up the wrong tree.  There’s a tree right next to “Trump’s tree” called the “Clinton’s tree,” but “reporters” tend to stay away from that tree for some reason.  The “biased fake news media.”

The next article is titled, “The world’s view of America has collapsed.”

In this article, “Economist Jeff Sachs slams President Trump’s trade policy and says the world’s view of America is in ‘free fall.’”

All I can say is they must hand out the title of “Economist” like they hand out free turkey dinners on Thanksgiving.

What is it exactly that you don’t like about President Trump’s trade policy, Mr. Jeff Sachs?

Would you prefer it if the U.S. ships thousands of its jobs to foreign countries?

Do you not like it when our trading partners treat us fairly and not like economic fools?

Do you not like it when American companies prosper via our trade deals as opposed to being forced to compete with one hand tied behind their backs?

C’mon Mr. Sachs, what is it?

You also claim that, “…the world’s view of America is in a ‘free fall.’”

May I suggest that the world’s view of American has changed for the better, from an American’s point of view?

Of course all of the other countries in the world don’t particularly like it when they can’t take advantage of us anymore, both economically and foreign policy wise.

Yes, it’s a good time to be an American…, unless you’re confused liberal or a liberal propagandist.

Winning!

He said that she said, that he said that she said. Get it?

The Judge Kavanaugh confirmation process has taken another interesting turn.  A turn, which of course, has not managed to make its way onto the “biased fake news media.”

As part of the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation process, the republican senators chose a separate prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, to question Christine Blasey Ford.

The democrats have repeatedly waved Blasey Ford’s polygraph test in front of the committee, and everyone else, as something to validate her testimony, since she has no direct corroborating witnesses regarding anything she has said.

A portion of Rachel Mitchell’s questioning went like this:

Mitchell:  “Have you ever had discussions with anyone, besides your attorneys, on how to take a polygraph?”

Blasey Ford:  “Never.”

Mitchell:  “And I don’t just mean counter-measures, but I mean just any sort of tips or anything like that?”

Blasey Ford:  “No.”

Mitchell:  “Have you ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test?”

Blasey Ford:  “Never.”

 

So I think we can safely say that as far as Blasey Ford testified, under oath, she has “never” advised anybody in anyway regarding a polygraph test.

Yes?

No.

Never say “never.”

Now, a boyfriend of six years, who lived with Blasey Ford, said she lied during the hearing, and has come out and contradicted Blasey Ford’s sworn testimony.

The boyfriend says, regarding Blasey Ford and her friend, Monica McLean, who is a former FBI agent by the way:

“I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam.  Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam.  Dr. Ford was able to help because of her background in psychology.”

This obviously does not agree with what Dr. Ford testified to last week, under oath, at the Kavanaugh hearing.

Of course, the democrats are choosing to ignore the claims of Blasey Ford’s longtime boyfriend, and the “biased fake news media” remains complicit by choosing to “spin” the news by not reporting about it at all.

I guess one good accusation does not deserve another.

And we know that all accusations are not treated equally, unless you meet the proper, liberal, political criteria.

I’m sure Dr. Blasey Ford sees herself as a hero, and a defender of a noble cause (all of those poor women who can’t wait to have abortions, and all of the Planned Parenthood centers that can’t wait to perform them ), and this justifies, in her mind, anything she has to say in an effort to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The problem is she just isn’t quite smart enough to pull it off.

And her democrat senator friends aren’t quite smart enough either.

Thankfully…, for the rest of us.

Winning!
