Those democrats sure do love them some China!

Well, I suppose…, China is a communist country after all.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “House Dem praises China’s ‘discipline’ on coronavirus, and says Trump brings US into ‘parallel universe.’”

‘“They’re [China is] faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she said.”

achina 6

“Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif. [a Nancy Pelosi wannabe], ripped the federal government’s response to the coronavirus, comparing it unfavorably to the way China handled the disease.”

achina 1

Is there no end to these brain-dead representatives from California?

It seems like we just continue to hear this “stupidness” from one after the other.

It’s a virtual parade of liberal fools trying to outdo each other!

‘“You look at China with so much more in terms of population … and they’re faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she told MSNBC [MSDNC] on Monday.”

Oh yes, Jackie…, their discipline is just soooo impressive!

I didn’t hear you mention how China reacted very quickly…, restricting flights within their own country, in and out of Wuhan, while allowing international flights to spread their virus around the rest of the world.

Wasn’t that an awesome way of handling the disease, Ms. Speier?

The fact that you are giving China ANY kind of praise in this matter is utterly disgusting.

In my opinion, the rest of the world should isolate China, and hold them accountable, make them pay, and pay dearly, for all of the lives lost and hardship they inflicted on the rest of the world.

But you wouldn’t have any interest in that would you, Ms. Speier?

achina 8

achina 9

“She called out President Trump, accusing him of spreading false information and failing to provide leadership for the states.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd.  When’s the last time you heard a democrat congressperson from California accusing President Trump of something?

I believe it only occurs on a daily basis.

‘“Unfortunately, the president brings us into this parallel universe, where he talks about hydroxychloroquine as if that’s going to be a solution, and then we find out that can actually hurt people and create heart problems,’ she said.”

Thank you for your input “Dr.” Speier…, albeit misleading and disingenuous.

And talk about living in a “parallel universe!”

‘“He said anyone can get a test that wants a test. That of course isn’t the case – and he’s never really invoked the Defense Production Act. So, we are scraping for the testing agents that we need. So, there’s a total lack of leadership on the federal level. So you have states doing very different things. And that’s why we are not being able to rein in this virus.’”

So, so…, so, so, so.

The facts are, Ms. Speier, that we lead the world in testing, by a wide margin.  No one is even close…, not even your beloved China.

And he hasn’t really invoked the Defense Production Act because he didn’t have to!

Manufacturers from across the country stepped up and did what was needed to be done at the request of The President, in cooperation, as opposed to by order.

And, yes, states are doing different things, because different states are in different situations, regarding the Chinese virus.

“Her comments came amid a broader debate about the way U.S. media outlets covered China’s response. The issue garnered renewed attention after reports surfaced indicating that China had suppressed information about the pandemic’s impact on the country.”

Really?!

China “suppressed information?”

No way!

achina 10

achina 12

Who’da thunk it?

“Some outlets have favorably compared China’s response to that of the U.S., while other reports have uncritically repeated China’s claim that it saw no new coronavirus deaths in April.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”

achina 5

“Writing in the Washington Examiner last week, T. Beckett Adams accused media outlets of spreading ‘Chinese communist propaganda.’”

Ya think?

There’s no end to the collection of Chinese “tools” and useful idiots out there to help China put themselves in the best light.

“Adams highlighted a Foreign Policy report alleging that China’s government directed media outlets not to publish negative information about its response to the pandemic.”

“In the Foreign Policy article, reporter Tracy Wen Liu said she was ‘repeatedly shut down by authorities’ when she tried reporting on the virus. She added ‘that [t]he government sent dozens of journalists to Wuhan to shape the narrative around the virus.’”

That’s what communist regimes, and the American fake news media, do.  They “shape” their liberal narrative rather than report the facts.

“Liu said Beijing’s suppression included mass removals of COVID-19 patients’ online pleas for help.”

“Similarly, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, has accused the Chinese government of knowing about the coronavirus long before it acknowledged its existence to the world.”

What is Representative Speier’s opinion about that?

Imagine yourself waiting for a very long time while only hearing the sound of crickets in the background.

That’s the democrat’s, and the fake news media’s, response to that accusation.

And who is this Congresswoman Jackie Speier?

We haven’t really heard much from her up until now, but she does have an interesting past.

It turns out she was one of the people shot and left for dead at the site of the “Jonestown Massacre,” over 40 years ago.

On Nov. 18, 1978, she was shot five times on a remote airstrip in Guyana, South America.  Her boss, Rep. Leo J. Ryan and four others lay dead nearby, killed by gunfire as they tried to escape Jonestown, the commune built by cult leader Jim Jones.

achina 3

She didn’t suffer any brain damage as a result of the shooting, did she?

That would help explain things.

She accompanied Ryan and 23 other people to Guyana, on the northeastern coast of South America, attempting to visit Jim Jones and nearly 1,000 followers he’d amassed.

By the end of the trip, Ryan was dead, the first and only congressman to be assassinated in office, along with three journalists and one cult defector. Speier and nine others had been shot and left for dead at a remote air strip.  They waited 22 hours there for help to arrive.

Immediately following the shootings, Jones and more than 900 of his followers died from self-inflicted cyanide poisoning in what was seen as a mass suicide at the time, but is now widely considered a mass murder.

Speier has occupied Ryan’s former seat in Congress since 2008.

achina 2

Speier had a long recovery ahead.  Shot five times, she spent two months in the hospital and had 10 surgeries.

Speier is now a member of the nefarious House Intelligence Committee…, led by her treasonous congressional cohort, Adam Schiff.

The most important election of our lifetimes…, WAS THE LAST ONE!

Matt Flegenheimer for The New York Times asks, “What if the Most Important Election of Our Lifetimes Was the Last One?”

aimelect 1

My response to him would be the last election, in 2016, was definitely the most important election of our lifetimes.

The election of 2016 showed that the people who really care about our country could still win a national election, regardless of the blatant liberal propaganda media and the millions of fraudulent votes fabricated by the liberal democrats.

The election of 2016 put an end to the appeasement of Muslim terrorists and those who support them.

The election of 2016 put an end to the wholesale shipment of American jobs overseas.

The election of 2016 put an end to the allowance of virtually every foreign country taking advantage of us via unfair trade agreements and policies.

The election of 2016 ended our dependence on oil from the Middle East.

The election of 2016 brought manufacturing back to America, most importantly of steel, which was a national defense concern.

The election of 2016 has put a finger in the dyke of the seemingly never ending leak of illegal and dangerous immigrants into our country.

The election of 2016 has brought to light many abuses perpetrated by the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA and more, which would have never even been known had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

The election of 2016 forced the liberal propaganda, fake news media to finally, and unquestionably, show themselves for who they are…, an arm of the democrat party, an enemy of our country an enemy of the American people.

The election of 2016 short circuited the unconstitutional UN-Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, and the attempted government takeover of our private healthcare system.

The election of 2016 brought long awaited reforms which improved the performance of the VA system and the overall treatment of our veterans.

The election of 2016 resulted in the rebuilding and upgrading of our military across the board.

The election of 2016 also resulted in the slashing of thousands and thousands of suffocating and obstructing federal regulations.

Other than that, the election of 2016 wasn’t important at all!

Flegenheimer continues, “Politics runs on superlative: the best plan, the biggest rally, the most votes.”

“And one trope [a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression] has proved most enduring of all, repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

Hold on a minute.

What is it with these “reporters” from The Times and The Post?  Why do they always feel the need to interject some word that no one ever uses?

I’m sure Flegenheimer spent quite a bit of time coming up with that “elitist word of the day.”

Anyway…, back to the one “figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression which has proved most enduring of all, and repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

‘“This is the most important election of our lifetimes,’ Bernie Sanders said of 2020 last month.”

‘“The most important election of our lives,’ Pete Buttigieg agreed in February.”

‘“Maybe the most important election,’ Joe Biden ruled last year, hedging slightly, ‘no matter how young or old you are.’”

“Maybe. But what if they’re wrong this time? What if the other clichés — of dice cast and Rubicons [defining moments] crossed [there we go again] — have finally overwritten this one? [I actually think he meant to say ‘dies cast.’]”

aimelect 4

“What if the most important election of our lifetimes happened already?”

“[President] Trump is in charge during a generational emergency, briefing the nation on life and death with an eye toward television ratings and miracle cures. It can feel unlikely that any choice in 2020 will be as consequential as the fact that he won in the first place.”

“Another Democratic primary day passed on Tuesday, this one in Wisconsin, and with it another reminder of the present limits of presidential politics, of how large the last decision looms and how distant the next one seems.”

Regarding the 2016 election, ‘“It was the rejection of business as usual,’ said Rebecca Kirszner Katz, a progressive Democratic strategist. ‘And that includes any form of competent governing.’”

The word “competent” being a matter of opinion, of course.

To be sure the 2016 election was “the rejection of business as usual.” And if you believe career establishment politicians and anti-American policies represent competency, then Ms. Kirszner Katz is your girl.

“Recent weeks have at once exposed the messiness of the federal virus response and the consistency of [President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts, delivering a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

Okay, Mr. Flegenheimer, I just have to dissect this last remark.

“The messiness of the federal virus response?”

At least we have a federal response!

And what is “messy” about it?  We have daily, transparent, briefings from The President and his team, and plan of action that’s endorsed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

What kind of “response” was put together by any other president in the last 50+ years regarding a “response” to a potentially dangerous virus?

Go ahead Flegenheimer…, talk amongst your friends…, I’ll wait.

I hate to interrupt, but…

Don’t you recall other presidents banning travel from foreign countries?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering that people be quarantined before reentering our country?

Don’t you recall other presidents shutting down educational systems across the country in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering all non-essential business be suspended and all personal interactions be limited in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

NO, OF COURSE YOU DON’T, Flegenheimer!

YOU DON’T RECALL ANY OTHER PRESIDENTS DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING…, BESIDES GIVE US ALL A BUNCH OF MEANINGLESS LIP SERVICE!

aimelect 2

Please let me remind you, Flegenheimer, since you seem to be factually challenged…,

… we currently have seen 1.9 million coronavirus cases worldwide, resulting in 120,500 deaths.

… we currently have seen 555,000 cases in the United States, resulting in 21,900 deaths.

aimelect 9

… in 2009, the H1N1 virus, or the Swine Flu, effected a billion people worldwide, with 284,000 estimated fatalities.  How come our country wasn’t shut down for this outbreak, President Obama?  Sleepy Joe Biden?  Anybody?

… in 2003 we had the SARS virus.

… in 1999 we had the West Nile Virus.

… in 1968 we had the H3N2 virus, or the Hong Kong Flu, where 33,800 people died in the U.S.

… and in 1957 over a million people died from the Asian Flu worldwide, while 116,000 died in the United States.

When have we cancelled, closed, or shut down anything before because of a virus?

The correct answer is NEVER.

aimelect 10

Getting back to your remark…, “[President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts,” could also be referred to as decisive, informed leadership, which has saved tens of thousands of lives.

And then you talk about “a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

May I suggest that any “chaos” in the White House, if there is any, is instigated and nurtured by you and your friends in the liberal propaganda, fake news media, and your democrat friends.

aimelect 5

aimelect 6

‘“What do you have to lose?’ [President] Trump famously asked black voters in 2016, suggesting he was a risk worth taking. He has repeated the question more recently in a new context: to encourage stricken citizens, in defiance of expert opinion, to try an anti-malarial drug to combat the coronavirus.”

Again, aiding you in your “factual challengedness,” Mr. Flegenheimer, the drug you’re referring to is hydroxychloroquine, and it has been proven to be quite effective in many cases.  In fact, many have given the drug credit for saving their lives.

“Of course, the answer to [President] Trump’s initial prompt has always been evident to most Democrats. At stake were health care plans, immigration policies, a generation of court seats and now, they say, many lives that would not have been lost to the coronavirus under more capable executive stewardship.”

And, of course, “the answer” to your answer is that your answer is all politically motivated anti-Trump propaganda and fake news.

‘“I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time,’ Biden said in his announcement video last year. ‘But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.’”

Only in a positive way, Sleepy Joe…, only in a positive way.

aimelect 8

Oh, and by the way, Sleepy Joe, wasn’t it you who called President Trump a “xenophobe” [a person having a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries] for blocking any travel from China at the onset of the outbreak, and probably saving tens of thousands of American lives as a result?

aimelect 3

Yes…, it was you Sleepy Joe…, don’t be shy!

‘“The striking thing about the first term is how much damage he was able to inflict,’ said Robert [the third] Reich, a former labor secretary under Bill Clinton who endorsed Sanders in the primary. ‘At the margin, he probably could do more with two terms, and I wouldn’t wish that on this nation. But he’s already done a huge amount.’”

Reich’s level of confusion here is both stunning and impressive.

How could a former labor secretary describe President Trump’s accomplishments regarding the lowest unemployment rates across the board, in history, as “damage?”

“In less trying times, Biden’s record on the subject had been consistent.”

Yes…, consistently a bunch of hot air.

‘“The most important election you’ve ever been part of,’ he told voters in 2018, rallying for midterm candidates.”

‘“The most important election,’ he said in 2016, stumping for Hillary Clinton, ‘in any of your lives.’”

Yeah…, we know…, it’s like, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.  Period.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan.  Period.”

They’re all just disingenuous words spouting out of an establishment politician’s mouth for the sake of those ignorant enough to believe them.

WINNING!

The White House is “smoking out the rats!”

alist 8

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “The Trump administration has been working with allies to assemble lists of officials [unelected bureaucrats] it considers ‘disloyal’ to the president and come up with potential replacements, according to an Axios report.”

alist 2

The only thing I have to say about this is…,

“IT’S ABOUT FRIGGIN’ TIME!!!!!

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

“The report, based on anonymous sources [Are there any other kind of sources when dealing with the fake news?!], alleges that the memos have circulated in the White House, produced by individuals including a GOP Senate staffer and a group of conservative activists named ‘Groundswell,’ which is led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.”

You go, Ginni Thomas!

And “alleges?”

As if The White House or this conservative group is guilty of anything.

“Anonymous sources” is fake news code words for “our embedded deep state, swampy, anti-Trump, “Benedict Arnolds.”

The exact same people President Trump wants to “reassign.”

alist 4

“On Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered Overtime’ with Harris Faulkner, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway defended [President] Trump’s right to hire and fire as he wishes and emphasized that the president is the person who sets executive branch policy.”

‘“We should not have people in government who are undermining the president’s agenda. The president got elected because his ideas prevailed,’ Conway said, when asked about the report. ‘If you want your views to become policy, you need to put your name on the ballot and become president of the United States.’”

Amen to that, sister!

alist 4

“According to Axios, Thomas at one point handed one of the memos produced by Groundswell directly to President Trump, which included the names of several conservatives loyal to Trump which the group recommended that he hire for various positions, including former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security.”

OMG!!!  She actually handed it to the President?! How dare she!

And who was the person who witnessed this and passed the information on to Axios?

PRECISELY ONE OF THE DISLOYAL DEEP STATERS THE WHITE HOUSE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!  THAT’S WHO!

How can any organization operate effectively with a bunch people intent on making that organization fail operating from within that organization?

These swampy bureaucrats seem to think they have some sort of right to whatever position they have.

These people are not elected.

alist 3

And again…, like Kellyanne Conway stated, President Trump has the right to hire and fire as he wishes and he is the person who sets executive branch policy.

“This development comes on the heels of news, also reported by Axios, that the new head of the Office of Presidential Personnel, Johnny McEntee, asked White House aides to identify members of the government who might be anti-Trump.”

Again…, so what?

In many other countries these people would be lined-up and shot or jailed.

In President Trump’s case, he just wants these rats reassigned or let go so he can work without their constant interference and undermining.

Not too much to ask for I don’t think.

Do these people think President Obama was loading up his staff with people that were opposed to him or his policies?

Do these people expect us to believe that anyone opposed to President Obama or his policies wasn’t shown the door pretty quickly?

I wouldn’t even hold it against President Obama.  It’s something I would expect.

“One memo that Axios reports on specifically involves the former nominee to be Treasury Department undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes Jessie Liu. The memo spelled out why Liu was not sufficiently pro-Trump at her previous post as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.”

“Reasons included Liu not pursuing criminal referrals that came from the Senate Judiciary Committee on the heels of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, asking for jail time for ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, not indicting former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and more.”

“Trump later withdrew Liu’s nomination to the Treasury Department post.”

Again…, so what?  And good. These nominations are entirely his, President Trump’s, prerogative.

“There were other memos like the Liu memo that made it to Trump’s desk, according to Axios, including one that named several State Department officers.”

Again…, who was the person who witnessed this and passed the information on to Axios?

ONE OF THE DISLOYAL DEEP STATE WEASELS THE WHITE HOUSE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!

alist 6

If I was President Trump, I’d leave some particularly juicy [but specifically] fake memos laying around, monitored by a video camera, just to see what got leaked and by whom.

Hey…, that’s how I roll.

“The Trump administration has taken action against other figures that might be perceived as disloyal to Trump, such as recalling U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from his post earlier this month and removing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council. Both actions, against officials who testified to the House of Representatives in its impeachment inquiry into Trump, came in the immediate wake of the Senate’s acquittal of Trump on both impeachment articles passed by the House.”

HIP, HIP, HOORAY!

HIP, HIP, HOORAY!

Get ‘em outta there!

The move regarding Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman particularly warmed my heart.

alist 1

WINNING…, WHILE DRAINING THE SWAMP!

Thank you for all of your misinformation and disingenuous hyping of the whole coronavirus situation.

acnncon 1

The world and the United States has faced many infectious diseases before, and we face the common flu every year, but we have never seen this level of outright hysteria demonstrated before.

“The annual flu” routinely kills hundreds and hundreds of times the people that the coronavirus has, and will, kill, and we already have a vaccine for it as well!

Where has the hysteria been about that?

Where have the quarantines been about that?

Where have the school and business closings been about that?

Why are tens of thousands of deaths acceptable every year from one virus, but these thousands of deaths are not from another virus?

acnncon 3

Thanks to the fake news’ eagerness to hang any bit of bad news on President Trump, they have now established a precedent that is going to make everyone’s life a living hell every year or every other year at least.

acnncon 2

acnncon 4

The threat of getting sick is now going to be dictating how we live our lives.

How are all of the politicians going to have to respond in the future to any disease floating around out there?

Are we going to have case counts and death counts for the flu every year now as well?

I hope not…, because those numbers would really be scary…, not like these wimpy coronavirus numbers.

Is it ever going to be “safe” again to gather together in large numbers?

Has the era of going to the movies, concerts, and sporting events come to an end?

Are we doomed to watch everything from remotely from the safety of our homes now?

Think about it.

I’m afraid the world has let the fake news media talk it into believing that our governments can, and should, protect us from anything and everything, including diseases and acts of nature.

Our lives are NEVER going to be the same now.

Your desire to control us has lowered our quality of life…, forever, which I know you’re not really concerned about, but your actions have ended up lowering the quality of your own lives as well.  This, I know, had not been considered before you (the fake news media and the democrats) decided to go down this path.

I see CNN has finally posted some news about the stock market! 

Yes folks, and if you see CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, The Huffington Post (HuffPost), The New York Times or The Washington Post reporting news about Wall Street, or the economy in general, it’s bad news.

acnn3 9

In this case, CNN Business’ David Goldman reports, “US stocks plummet on Coronavirus fears: March 9, 2020.  Dow falls 2,100 points.”

Well, that is definitely news Mr. Goldman…, but it was news too when the stock market hit record highs like over 30 times this last year.

It’s funny how I didn’t see any mention of those economic events.

I wonder why?

acnn3 3

CNN must be doubly excited about this news…, as their hyping of the coronavirus seems to be working and that in turn is causing negative economic news.

Please check out my previous blogs regarding the coronavirus:

You scared of the Coronavirus?  From March 3, 2020

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/03/you-scared-of-the-coronavirus/

and,

Death toll hits 14,000!  But I’m not talking about the coronavirus. From March 9, 2020.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/09/death-toll-hits-14000-but-im-not-talking-about-the-coronavirus/

Another article out there by David Goldman today reports, “It’s a bad day to be an energy company.”

Wow…, two articles in one day!  Mr. Goldman must be extra charged up by all of this bad news!

acnn3 8

Goldman reports, ‘“The rapidly falling price of oil [due to an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia] is likely to put more pressure on energy companies in the United States, which will hurt the banks with the most credit exposure to the oil industry,’ according to CFRA Research analyst Pauline Bell.”

Yes, Mr. Goldman…, again, this is definitely news.

But it was also news when President Trump pushed to open-up more areas for oil exploration and when he got all of the pipelines approved.  Not to mention when we gained our independence from Middle Eastern oil, and in fact, became the world’s number one producer of oil again!

Not to mention how low the price of gas has been for over three years now.

This “good stuff” was also news that I didn’t catch you or CNN reporting about, or even bothering to mention in most cases.

Again, I wonder why?

acnn3 7

Actually, I don’t “wonder why” at all.

I know very well why all of the liberal propaganda, fake news, shamelessly tries to manipulate the news.

It’s all in an effort to support their anti-Trump narrative.

acnn3 1

acnn3 5

It’s just amazing to me how many people are still falling for this fake news.

acnn3 4

acnn3 2

Just watch the fanfare (I’m being sarcastic) about the market bouncing back on the fake news today.

There won’t be any.

The Coronavirus, Mexico and illegal immigration.

acorona 2

Right now, the coronavirus is not a problem in Mexico.

There have been some suspected cases, but nothing confirmed.

But what if the virus spreads to Mexico?

Better said, what about WHEN the virus spreads to Mexico…, because you know it will.

Then how will democrats spin their love of illegal immigration?

acorona 6

Even though President Trump has managed to greatly reduce illegal immigration from Mexico, there is still an average of over 30,000 illegal immigrants crossing over into our country on a monthly basis.

acorona 7

That’s over 30,000 people, A MONTH, just walking into our country, unscreened for the coronavirus, or any other virus or disease for that matter.

When the virus starts showing up in Mexico, that’s when we’ll really see the effects of not being able to control our borders.

I’m sure President Trump will ask for the means to exert additional control over the border (which would be a completely reasonable and appropriate request), and I’m sure the democrats will fight him every step of the way on this.

acorona 8

We already understand that democrats have NO concern for the safety of American citizens when it comes to illegal immigrants…, so I’m sure passing the coronavirus onto us all (but not them of course) won’t bother them at all.

acorona 3

I can hear all of the democrats now…

“Donald Trump is to blame!”

Donald Trump is just using the coronavirus as an excuse to expand his racist border practices.”

acorona 12

“Immigrants (referring to illegal immigrants) have a right to the best treatment for the virus, just like American citizens.”

acorona 10

“It isn’t right to discriminate against individuals who are sick by no fault of their own.

“We are a caring nation and we shouldn’t turn anyone away for any reason.”

acorona 5

Keep your ears open and see how long it takes to start hearing comments like these from the democrats and their co-conspirators in the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

The Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”

It doesn’t say anything about sending your sick people here!

Especially your sick people who have the potential of spreading an epidemic across our country and killing thousands, perhaps millions of Americans.

This popular high school cheer seems to be the new motto for many confused liberals out there!

We’ve seen quite a few cases lately of deranged liberal politicians calling for physical action against the evil, Trump supporting, conservatives.

aasses 5

We have also seen these physical interactions come to fruition all across the country…, but mostly in liberal hotbeds, where this type of behavior is becoming more and more acceptable.

Like college campuses for example.

aasses 1

In the latest incident, “A New Hampshire man [using the term “man” in its loosest of terms] was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a polling site during the state’s first-in-the-nation primary earlier this week,” according to Brooke Singman of Fox News.

aasses 11

“The teen’s mother said in an exclusive interview with Fox News after the arrest that her son is ‘traumatized.”

And rightly so.

“Fox News has learned that the suspect got in the face of the teenage boy who was wearing a red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and volunteering at the Trump tent at Windham High School, a polling location for the New Hampshire primary.”

Oh my God!  A red, ‘Make America Great Again’ hat!  That’s a green light for any liberal idiot to do anything they want to the person wearing the hat! So much for freedom of speech and freedom of expression in the liberal fascists’ America!

aasses 2

“Police said the incident happened Tuesday as Bradley [otherwise known as “that disgusting liberal turd”] exited the voting location inside the high school and was walking by a Trump campaign tent occupied by several supporters. As he passed by the tent, police said, Bradley [“the disgusting liberal turd”] slapped a 15-year old juvenile across the face and then assaulted two other adults who attempted to intercede.”

“The Windham Police Department said Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct.”

“Bradley is also accused of throwing Trump campaign signs and attempting to knock over the campaign tent, police said.”

“In the interview with Fox News, the boy’s mother, Cathy Campbell, described the incident involving her son, requesting he remains anonymous.”

‘“My son stayed home from school on Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment and we drove by the high school to go vote. When we got there, we saw Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, and my son was over the moon,’ she said. ‘My son is the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life.”’

aasses 12

“The Trump campaign confirmed that both Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle were at the polling place on Tuesday.”

“Campbell told Fox News that later in the day, her son was invited to volunteer at the polling site and hold Trump signs outside the school.”

‘“I was apprehensive about him wearing the MAGA hat, because we know it can provoke and we know people don’t like Trump,’ she explained. ‘But he wore the hat because he’s a proud 15-year-old and he doesn’t know what people are going to be like.’”

It’s a damn shame that anyone should have to feel any concern about wearing anything they want.  Thanks for that fascist liberals.

‘“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said “have a nice night,” he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered,’ Campbell explained. ‘He said ‘f— you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.’”

Typical “brave” liberal tough guy…, attacking a kid.

If you notice, all of these attacks are either on a kid, an old person, or by a group that all of these cowards can hide out in.

Wouldn’t assaulting a minor be more than just a “simple assault?”

Just sayin’.

And wouldn’t this fall under the category of a “hate crime?”

Just sayin’ again.

“Campbell said that a man, also wearing a MAGA hat, came over to intervene. According to Campbell, that man now has a fractured jaw.”

So that’s multiple assaults?!  I really don’t see anything “simple” about what this liberal coward did, do you?

“Campbell told Fox News that her husband is a firefighter in town and was on duty during the incident.”

‘“He got the call about the assault and didn’t know it was our son until he got there,’ she explained.”

‘“He’s the sweetest kid,” Campbell said of her son. ‘He was so excited and not realizing that something like this could happen.’”

And he was right to think that.  Something like this definitely shouldn’t happen.

“Since the incident Tuesday, Campbell said her son is ‘pretty traumatized.’”

And again, rightly so.

But what about all of the incidents of Trump supporters attacking liberals you might ask?

Why don’t I make a big deal about those incidents you might ask?

BECAUSE THERE AREN’T ANY INCIDENTS OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS ATTACKING LIBERALS!  THAT’S WHY!

‘“This guy lives in our town. It’s pretty unnerving,’ she [Campbell] said, but added that her son has been going to school and is getting ‘a lot of support from his peers.’”

Good for all of those kids.

‘“There will always be the people who try to blame the victim,’ she said. ‘But he certainly did nothing wrong.’”

‘“It sickens me that people would be angry at a kid for wearing a stupid hat,’ she said.”

“Campbell also explained that she and her family are ‘Republicans, and we are Trump supporters.  He’s not perfect, but he’s our president and we support him,’ she said.”

‘“So a leftist attacks 3 Trump supporters, including a 15 year old child, in NH this week,’ the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted Thursday.  ‘Last week a deranged leftist attempted to run over a group of Trump supporters with a car in FL. What will it take for the MSM [Main stream media] to finally call out leftwing violence?’”

Don’t hold your breath, Don.  The media is not even pretending to be fair, by any stretch of the imagination.

“Donald Trump Jr. reached out to the 15-year-old Trump supporter who was allegedly assaulted outside a polling place on New Hampshire primary day this week, telling him that ‘the Trump family has your back.’”

‘“So it turns out that I actually met the 15 year old victim shortly before he was attacked by a sick leftist,’ Trump Jr. tweeted. ‘I asked an aide to find his number & just got off the phone with him & his mother. I thanked them for being such strong supporters. My family has your back Nate! #MAGA.’”

“Meanwhile, on Friday, Trump Jr. slammed media outlets for not giving Campbell’s incident more coverage.”

‘“Given the main stream media’s willingness to destroy the lives of teenage conservatives, like the Covington Catholic kids, it should come as no surprise that they would barely touch this story of an adult far left Democrat assaulting a 15 year old,’ he tweeted. ‘Where are you clowns on this?’”

“According to the Windham Police Department, Bradley [“the disgusting liberal turd”], was transported to the Rockingham County Jail where he is being held on a $5,000 cash bail, as well as an administrative hold for a probation violation. Bradley [“the disgusting liberal turd”] is expected to be arraigned Friday.”

“The incident follows other violence against Trump supporters. A Florida man, Gregory Timm [also known as “a disgusting liberal turd”], 27, is accused of ramming his van into a Republican Party voter registration tent on Saturday. An arrest report said Timm told deputies he did not like Trump and ‘someone had to take a stand.’”

Yes sir…, there IS going to come a time soon where we’re all going to have to take a stand…, and it is going to get real ugly, real fast, for these liberal fascists.  Then they’ll really have something to cry about.

As usual, the democrats just don’t get it, or they refuse to acknowledge reality.

adems 7

As reported in the annual Annenberg survey, only 32% of Americans can name our three branches of government and 33% can’t name any of the branches of our government!

adems 1

With that in mind, I realize I’m going a little out on a limb here discussing British politics…, but I believe MrEricksonRules’ readers are well informed and interested in how the recent British elections may relate to the upcoming U.S. election in 2020.

According to Adam Shaw, Paul Steinhauser and Kelly Phares of Fox News, “Left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn saw his party mauled in Britain’s general election Thursday as its strongholds across the country fell to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party — a dramatic result that commentators on both sides of the pond are seeing as a warning to socialist-leaning Democrats ahead of the U.S. presidential election.”

adems 9

“And for those who have openly cautioned about the party’s drift to the left, the U.K. results were treated as nothing short of a wake-up call. A sign, for some, that even a populist incumbent as irreverent and contentious as Johnson could ride to victory when the alternative is an equally controversial leftist vowing massive government expansion.”

Or perhaps an irreverent populist is just what the British people are looking for!

The liberals would never admit that, however.  This was obviously just some sort of mistake or a strategical miscalculation.

‘“Maybe this is the canary in the coal mine,’ Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg, who has tried to sell himself as a more electable alternative to candidates like Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders since entering the race last month, told reporters Friday.”

adems 6

And therein lies the problem with the democrats…, they’re always trying to “sell themselves” as something they’re not rather than just being honest about what they stand for.

Anyway…, nice analogy Mr. Bloomberg!

Only you think the canary dying symbolizes some sort of a warning for liberals, while I think it is symbolizing the death of the Democrat Party!

‘“The public clearly wanted a change in the U.K. The change was much more rapid and [had] greater magnitude than anyone had predicted. And I think it’s sort of a catastrophic warning to the Democratic Party that you’re just going to have to have somebody that can beat Donald Trump, and that is not going to be easy.”

adems 2

The problem here is, “Bloomy,” otherwise known as “Mr. Excitement…,” the majority of the people have to want a change for some reason, and President Trump hasn’t given them one. In fact, he has acquired supporters who feel he has, and is, doing a good job.

President Trump has proven he’s not your typical politician.

He has kept all of his campaign promises, and has accumulated quite a list of accomplishments along the way regarding the economy, energy, VA policies, positive minority policies, trade imbalances and foreign policy, just to name a few.

“Americans want change, but I think they don’t want revolutionary change,” the centrist billionaire said. “They want evolutionary change.”

What does that mean?

Please…, don’t even pretend to know what most Americans want, “Bloomy.”

adems 3

“[Boris] Johnson’s Tories won 365 seats in Parliament’s lower chamber, with Labour picking up just 203. It hands the Conservatives their biggest majority since the days of Margaret Thatcher and marks the worst showing for Labour since the 1930s. The left-wing party was left shell-shocked after a night that saw once-safe seats in working-class areas turn Tory, with enormous swings that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.”

Ha!  Ya…, we know what “shell-shocked liberals look like!

adems 10

“Seats in places such as Bolsover, Workington, Blyth Valley, Burnley, Wrexham and Stoke-on-Trent toppled one after another, each one yet another nail in the coffin of Labour’s hopes of ushering in a socialist government and preventing Britain’s departure from the European Union. It represented what many commentators are seeing as a realignment in British politics, as the Conservatives ripped up the electoral map and made gains in the North East, the North West and Wales in particular.”

This is comparable to President Trump winning the “rust belt” manufacturing states, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in the 2016 presidential election.

adems 11

“Corbyn announced that he would eventually step down, promising not to lead the party in another general election, but saying that would come after a ‘period of reflection.’ He quickly tried to set the narrative that it was questions over Brexit, not his brand of hard-left policies that had ‘ultimately doomed the party.’”

Like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it.

There won’t be any “period of reflection…,” only a period of “restrategization.”

‘“All those policies were extremely popular during the election campaign and remain policies that have huge popular support all across this country,’ he said. ‘However Brexit has so polarized and divided debate in this country it has overriden so much of a normal political debate and I recognize that has contributed to the results the Labour Party has received all across this country.’”

Please stop trying to kid yourself and the British people.  I mean, we can all see exactly how “extremely popular” your policies were across your country.

Wa, wa, wa, waaaaaa.

“But while many of the seats that fell represent ‘pro-Leave’ [pro-Brexit] areas, polls suggested that it was Corbyn — and his extreme brand of left-wing politics — that was a more significant factor for Brits. Corbyn had taken over the party leadership in 2015 and dragged it to the left in a rejection of the kind of centrism embodied by three-term Prime Minister Tony Blair.”

Like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it, and they are refusing to allow the will of the people to affect their narrative.

“It’s a lesson that many in the U.K. and the U.S. are saying should be a warning for Democrats who may think that victory lies with an uncompromising agenda featuring government health care, immigration enforcement rollbacks and more. Democrats like Sens. Sanders, I-Vt., and Warren, D-Mass., have promoted far-reaching policies such as ‘Medicare-for-all’ and a halt to deportations of illegal immigrants — leading some to fear they may be out of step with the country.”

They’re only “out of step” with those of us who want to see America succeed.

They’re only “out of step” with those of us who work, or have worked, for a living.

And they’re only “out of step” with those of us who are informed and use our common sense.

adems 12

‘“One lesson from the UK: if the Democrats don’t stop their hard-left slide, they’ll suffer the same fate as Labour,’ commentator Andrew Sullivan tweeted. ‘If they don’t move off their support for mass immigration, they’re toast. Ditto the “wokeness.” Left [leaning] Twitter is not reality.’”

No worries there!

Toast it is!

“Former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan warned also about the Twitter bubble, and that Democrats should be careful about picking someone too far on the fringes.”

‘“Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren both share Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist agenda and both appear to be as popular as him on Twitter,’ Morgan said in an op-ed. ‘But Twitter’s not the real world.’”

“He also drew comparisons between the British Left’s effort to thwart Brexit and the Democratic push to impeach Trump, rather than beat him at the ballot box.”

‘“Those who voted for Brexit and Trump don’t take kindly to their democratic vote being abused in this way and their retribution comes at the ballot box,’ he said. ‘If people think Boris Johnson’s earthquake was big, just wait until the Senate acquits President Trump and he uses that victory to storm to re-election.’”

Amen!

adems 10

“But if there is that kind of warning for Americans, it may be a message that meets significant resistance from activists hoping for their own version of a Corbynite revolution, and who may not be put off by the warning signs in Thursday’s vote.”

In other words…, the anti-American liberals, “the swamp,” RINOs (Mitt Romney for example), and the generally clueless.

adems 5

“MSNBC host Chris Hayes pointed out that Corbyn is running in a way that many Democrats would like to see.”

Again…, like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it, and they are refusing to allow the will of the people to affect their narrative.

‘“One thing you can’t say about the Corbyn campaign was that he was “Tory lite” [conservative lite] or too neoliberal or too establishment. He ran unabashedly from the left in a way many leftists want Democrats to run here in the U.S.,’ he tweeted. But after some criticism he deleted it, saying it was a ‘bad take.’”

And that was his problem!

Here we had a liberal that didn’t pretend to be something he wasn’t.

And that’s exactly why he and his party got whooped so bad!

“But the message of the U.K. election had also resonated in the White House. On Friday, [President] Trump suggested that just as the 2016 Brexit referendum foreshadowed his own presidential win a few months later, the 2019 U.K. election forecasts a win for him in 2020.”

‘“I want to congratulate Boris Johnson on a terrific victory. I think that might be a harbinger of what’s to come in our country,’ he said. ‘It was last time.’”

It might very well be a “harbinger of what’s to come in our country,” Mr. President.

adems 13

And if that were the case, that would mean a landslide victory you.

But what would a “landslide” victory look like for you?

First of all, a landslide victory for you would include your personal victory as well as maintaining control of the senate and regaining control of the House of Representatives.

Second, we would see you capturing a considerable majority of electoral votes.

What do I mean by a “considerable majority of electoral votes?”

Well, there are 538 total electoral votes that can be won.

The winner is the first candidate to win 270 of those votes.

The democrat in the race is virtually guaranteed to win 151 votes because of the liberal dominance in states like California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia.

That means a landslide victory for President Trump would be in the range of 340-350 electoral votes.  He won 304 electoral votes in 2016.

Lastly, President Trump would come very close to, if not winning the popular vote outright.

It is my belief that President Trump WILL win re-election in a “landslide” victory in 2020.

WINNING!

Lisa “the lover” Page is suing the FBI and the DOJ.  Well isn’t that special!

Yes folks…, Lisa (the lying, treasonous, adulteress) Page is suing her own deep state friends at the FBI and the DOJ.

afbi 1

How the world turns!

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “Lisa Page sues FBI and DOJ, citing ‘cost of therapy’ after Trump mocked her salacious text messages.”

afbi 10

Please refer to my previous blog, “Lisa “one of ‘the treasonous lovers’” Page is outraged at President Trump?! From December 3, 2019.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2019/12/03/lisa-one-of-the-treasonous-lovers-page-is-outraged-at-president-trump/

“Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is suing the FBI and Department of Justice, alleging that the government’s publication of her salacious text messages with anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok constituted a breach of the Federal Privacy Act.”

afbi 6

“In the complaint filed Tuesday, the 39-year-old Page said she suffered numerous damages, including a ‘permanent loss of earning capacity due to reputational damage’ and ‘the cost of therapy to cope with unwanted national media exposure and harassment’ caused by the disclosure.”

What was the extent of the damage suffered by President Trump as a result of your treasonous behavior, Lisa?

Just the fact that you have the nerve to sue the government because of their reaction and President Trump’s reaction to your treasonous coup, with your co-conspirator “lover,” Peter Stzrok, exhibits your perceived and twisted level of entitlement and privilege.

afbi 7

“Page’s complaint also sought reimbursement for ‘the cost of childcare during and transportation to multiple investigative reviews and appearances before Congress,’ the ‘cost of paying a data-privacy service to protect her personal information,’ and attorney’s fees.”

“On Dec. 12, 2017, Page said in the complaint, ‘DOJ and/or FBI officials disclosed’ her sensitive text messages ‘directly to a select group of reporters to ensure they would become public.’ Page alleged that after discovery, she would be able to prove that senior officials knew they were violating the law, and that their conduct was ‘willful and intentional.’”

Oh…, you mean they leaked information to the press like your “lover” did as part of the treasonous coup against President Trump?

Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it?

afbi 8

“Page’s lawsuit lamented that [President] Trump’s tweets about Page’s texts ‘have been retweeted and favorited millions of times.’ Trump, Page went on, has ‘targeted’ her ‘by name in more than 40 tweets and dozens of interviews, press conferences, and statements from the White House, fueling unwanted media attention that has radically altered her day-to-day life.’”

Awwwww.

afbi 3

That’s typically what people do when they’re attacked, Lisa…, they defend themselves.

The plain and simple truth is “you started it.”

Apparently your slutty and treasonous brain was writing checks it wasn’t prepared to cash.

afbi 2

“She argued that federal law prevents agencies from disclosing personal records about individuals ‘unless an exception applies or the individual who is the subject of the record consents in writing to the disclosure.’”

I would say plotting a treasonous coup against The President of the United States would constitute an “exception.”

afbi 4

“Page’s lawsuit claimed that there was no public-interest justification for the government’s leak.”

Au contraire “lover girl!”

There is tons of “public interest” regarding you and your treasonous co-conspirator, who was also your illicit “lover!’

Are you kidding?!

This whole thing is better than watching “Game of Thrones!”

We all just can’t wait for the conclusion when you and “lover” boy are “perp walked” into custody!

“In a separate bombshell report issued Monday, Horowitz [Inspector General Michael Horowitz] extensively faulted the FBI’s secretive efforts to surveil a former Trump aide, which involved both Page and Strzok.”

afbi 11

Well there you go…, and there’s more coming where that came from.

“Page’s suit will likely face an immediate challenge from the government. The Supreme Court has previously ruled that suits against the government under the Privacy Act for mental and emotional distress are not immune from the doctrine of sovereign immunity, which limits the right of individuals to sue the federal government.”

Taking this into consideration, Lisa “the treasonous lover” Page must have an ulterior motive for filing the lawsuit…, since she has virtually no chance of winning it.

Perhaps she is trying to muster up as much sympathy for herself as she can before she get indicted.

afbi 5

“Her lawsuit does not contain an apology for her conduct, and she has long maintained that her anti-Trump views — which she shared with Strzok using FBI phones even as the two played key roles in the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes — did not affect her official duties.”

Of course not!

Not when your “official duties” included trying to take down a duly elected president!

“Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent who led FBI investigations into Clinton’s use of a private email server and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after his anti-Trump texts with Page came to light.  He was [FIRED!] from the FBI last August.

afbi 12

“Lisa Page left the FBI in May of 2018.”

“Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of our lives.”

WINNING!

afbi 12

President Trump is absolutely right…, AGAIN!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “[President] Trump says America would be better off without the ‘CNNs of the world’ after fiery news conference.”

“President Trump ended Wednesday’s White House joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö by taking a shot at CNN.”

‘“The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation,’ Trump said.”

anocnn 9

anocnn 10

Can anyone possibly argue the validity of that statement?

Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of that statement?

It is now commonly acknowledged that our “press” has a definite liberal bias.

It has also become apparent, particularly within the last five to ten years, that the “press” has gone beyond being bias to promoting the liberal narrative of the moment.

anocnn 2

anocnn 3

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press….”

The founders of our country saw “the press” as an important component towards a healthy government and a healthy democracy.

According to Eugene Volokh and Gary T. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, for the Heritage.org website, “

This writing by the First Continental Congress in 1774, says, “The last right we shall mention regards the freedom of the press. The importance of this consists, besides the advancement of truth, science, morality, and arts in general, in its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Government, its ready communication of thoughts between subjects, and its consequential promotion of union among them, whereby oppressive officers are shamed or intimidated into more honorable and just modes of conducting affairs.”

So what are reasonable or accepted journalistic standards?

While various codes may have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

It is not “the job” of “the press” to be oppositional or propositional.

So, again I ask, can anyone possibly argue the validity of President Trump’s statement?  Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of President Trump’s statement?

Apparently it is “the press” itself who is ready to argue The President’s point.

Again, President Trump commented “The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”

No sooner had the words left President Trump’s mouth, a male voice from somewhere in the room shouted, “We are, Mr. President!”

“A source inside the room told Fox News the person who shouted was CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.”

anocnn 1

anocnn 5

“Trump’s retort? ‘We would be far greater when we don’t have the CNNs of the world, who are corrupt people.’”

“Trump then thanked the attendees and walked off.”

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And don’t hold your breath waiting either.

anocnn 12

In this instance, it is safe to use Jim Acosta as an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

Instead of recording and reporting, we have Jim Acosta choosing to interject himself into the story.

Again…, Acosta is an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

It also seems that CNN played right along…, demonstrating exactly what The President was referring to…, and making his point for him.

WINNING!
