Does your U.S. representative represent you?

In a democratic republic, which is the type of government the U.S. has, our elected state senators and district representatives are supposed to represent the citizens in their state and districts.

Rather than the entire country voting on every issue and law, we elect these representatives to do so on our behalf.

The only problem is, we have many elected officials in government who commonly disregard the people they represent, the people they work for, and vote for things because they feel they know better, they want to draw, what they deem to be, favorable political attention to themselves, or because of “pressure” from their respective political parties.  

I’ve selected four representatives to use as examples.

Donald Trump got 68.62% of the vote in West Virginia, yet, their senator, Joe Manchin votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment.  

Donald Trump got 58.13% of the vote in Utah, yet, their senator, Mitt Romney, voted to impeach President Trump, and sides with the democrats quite often.  

Donald Trump got 56.92% of the vote in Montana, yet, their senator, Jon Tester votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment. 

Donald Trump got 69.94% of the vote in Wyoming, yet, one of their representatives, Liz Cheney, voted to impeach President Trump, and was very outspoken on the issue.  

Again, these are just the four examples I’ve chosen to use here, but there are more.

Then we have senate “majority” leader, Chuck Schumer, who really doesn’t represent a majority at all, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose democrat party holds the slimmest of majorities in the Congress, pushing radical, totalitarian, legislation, while supposedly representing most Americans, which they don’t.

And we can throw Illegitimate Joe Biden in there, as well, with his signing of radical executive orders, while purporting to desire unity among the American people.

He may want unity, but only on his terms, and only unity with people who will blindly follow his anti-American agenda.

Better said, the anti-American agenda that Illegitimate Joe has been told to follow.

Remember, Joe…, Kamala is waiting in the wings to become the Signer in Chief, should you falter or grow a conscience.  

It is now very apparent that Joe Biden and his administration was only a “trojan horse” for ultra-left-wing policies and ideology.

Hopefully America can survive until the 2022 elections, and then until the elections of 2024.

Can’t we all just get along now?

Now that President Trump is in the process of being cheated out of his re-election?

Nancy Pelosi was re-elected as the Speaker of The House of Representatives, for the 117th Congress, on January 3rd.

During her speech to the new Congress, we heard a masked Pelosi, even though there was no one within ten feet of her, declare that this is now “a time to heal.”

Excuse me…, but I can think of like 74 million Trump voters off the top of my head who would disagree with you, Nancy!

There is no “healing” anymore after the way you and your democrat friends shamefully treated our president…, President Trump, during his four years in office…, and then stole the 2020 election.

No…, there is no “getting along” or “healing anymore.

This has now become a war to save America.

You said that “prayers are needed now.”  

Who or what do you and your ilk pray to, Nancy?

You don’t really expect us to believe that God endorses your Godless beliefs and behavior, do you…, or that you ask Him for help with your depraved agenda? 

I mean, c’mon, really?

You’ve gotta give us some credit!  

Either you are a complete manipulative, hypocritical, phony, or you are just really screwed up.

My vote is you’re a complete manipulative, hypocritical, phony.

You then went on to call for “justice.”

“Economic justice,”

“Health justice,”

“Racial justice,”

And “environmental and climate justice.”

I think you think “justice” means advancing the liberal, socialist, and globalist agenda in these areas.  

The “justice” we really need is:

Justice for unborn babies in the womb,

Election justice,

Uncensored freedom of speech,

Justice in media coverage,

And most ironically, justice from the Department of Justice and the FBI.    

You then finished by saying, “no one in America should be left out or left behind.”

If that statement wasn’t so sad it would be hilarious!

Have you actually stepped foot in your own district in San Francisco, California?

Granted, you’d have to be careful so as to not step in a pile of human excrement, which is a major problem in your idyllic city!

But if you were able to visit your district without getting your shoes dirty, you would see thousands and thousands of homeless people who have been “left out or left behind.”

Doesn’t charity begin at home?

You can’t even take care of your own little district, but you want to lecture the rest of us regarding what we should strive for as a country?

These are just move disingenuous empty words from another corrupt politician.

Oh…, that reminds me…, we also need some political justice!

I won’t be holding my breath waiting for that either, however.

Trump is the big winner in this week’s primaries!

Yes…, President Trump just keeps on winning, while the democrats and the lamestream media come out the losers…, again.

acandidates 5

According to Doug Schoen, for Fox News, “Trump is big winner and Sessions is the big loser in Tuesday primaries, while Dems remain divided.”

He also reports that, “The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

“There are two key takeaways from the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama, Maine and Texas.”

“First, the big winner of the night was President Trump.  Several Trump-backed candidates defeated their opponents and unquestionably benefited significantly from The President’s support. The most notable of these was former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who defeated former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions for the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, considered a highly vulnerable incumbent.”

acandidates 6

“Second, Democratic primary results show the party is deeply divided, complicating the Democrats’ path to winning majority control of the Senate and defeating Trump in the November election.”

“Alabama was the biggest race Tuesday and of special interest to [President] Trump. The President forced out Sessions as attorney general after Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election – a decision Sessions said he was required to make because he had been involved in the Trump campaign. Trump never forgave Sessions for the recusal and considered it a betrayal.”

“In his bid to regain the Senate seat he resigned to become Trump’s attorney general, Sessions faced fierce opposition from The President, who repeatedly criticized him with harsh insults and actively supported Tuberville. Trump’s endorsement clearly carried more weight with voters than Sessions’ endorsements from prominent Republicans and his former Republican Senate colleagues, including Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.”

So, who are these other “prominent republicans who went out of their way to buck President Trump and endorse Jeff Sessions?

Ann Coulter

acandidates 10

Michelle Malkin

And republican senators:

Jim Inhoffe (OK)

Pat Roberts (KS)

Mike Enzi (WY)

Mike Crapo (ID)

John Barrasso (WY)

Roy Blunt (MO)

John Boozman (AR)

Ron Johnson (WI)

Deb Fischer (NE)

Michelle Malkin…, you have broken my heart!  Jeff “the backstabber” Sessions?!  Really?  What could you have possibly been thinking?  I’m going to have to re-evaluate our relationship.

acandidates 11

And my own senator, Ron Johnson!  Why would you endorse Jeff “the mole” Sessions?!

Very disappointing.

acandidates 12

“Meanwhile, in Texas, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was endorsed by [President] Trump, won his primary for a U.S. House seat, beating out Josh Winegarner. Winegarner was endorsed by the outgoing Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry.”

acandidates 13

“In many ways, the weight of [President] Trump’s endorsements in Alabama and Texas signals that The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

Recollecting the polls and their accuracy during the 2016 presidential election, I would say this is most definitely the case.

acandidates 3

acandidates 4

A day or so before the primaries, I can recall the media touting that the Sessions-Tuberville race was a virtual toss-up.

Tuberville crushed Sessions, 60.7% to 39.3%.

Some kind of “toss-up,” huh?

“In several U.S. House and Senate Democratic primaries held in June, progressive challengers either defeated or came close to nearly defeating their well-funded establishment opponents.”

“Likewise, the division between the progressive and moderate factions of the party was manifest in Tuesday’s primaries.”

“Given the clear progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party across the country, there will also likely be greater pressure on the party to embrace left-leaning policies, such as defunding the police, which are unpopular with the general electorate.”

You mean most people don’t want to operate under jungle rules?

You mean most people believe that criminals should be arrested?

You mean that most people believe that other people who can’t behave in a civilized manner should be dealt with accordingly?

acandidates 14

acandidates 15

acandidates 16

If that’s what you mean, well then maybe you do agree with me that these favorable polls for Sleepy Joe are seriously flawed.

It’s hard to believe the democrats believe most people in the country want the Chicago, the L.A., or the New York lifestyle of burning, looting, shooting, killing and just general lawlessness.

acandidates 2

“Doing so could cost the Democrats the presidency, the Senate, and even their current House majority.”

We can only hope!

acandidates 1

The only mention of these primary events by CNN is a whiney little article about Sessions and how he was mistreated by The President, and how he paid the price for being associated with President Trump somehow, even though The President firmly backed his opponent in the primary.

Only the “logic” of CNN can explain that “expert” analysis.

WINNING!

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 7

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.

More propaganda by omission!

Liberal propaganda, that is.

There were special elections Tuesday, May 12, for two open Congressional seats.  One in California and one in Wisconsin.

But, there was no mention of the results of these races on CNN or their website.

acnnelect 11

In their defense, it was a busy news day.

There were many stories that were much more important, like:

“A teenager accidentally hit and killed her father while learning to park truck.”

“Elle Fanning dressed up as Brad Pitt and nailed it.”

“Sharon Osbourne weighs in on body image debate after Adele’s viral Instagram post.”

“Tina Fey’s daughter crashes interview, calls mom a loser.”

“American artist Rashid Johnson: ‘Anxiety is part of my life.’”

I mean, you can only cover so much news, right?

But why on earth would CNN not even mention who won these elections?

Hmmm.  What’s going on here?

I mean, there are only 435 of these representatives, and they’re responsible for spending all of our money and making all of the federal laws.

You would think that any responsible news organization would at least mention the results.

Ahhh…, well there we have it!

CNN isn’t a responsible news organization…, it’s a part of the propaganda wing for the democrat party!

acnnelect 12

In fact, most of the mainstream, fake news media failed to offer ANY coverage of this as well.

acnnelect 8

When seen from the proper perspective…, CNN, and all of their fake news friends, not mentioning the special elections makes perfect sense.

You see, in the case of this special election, the two congressional seats were won by republicans, and Trump supporters to boot!

This does not fit the liberals’ narrative!

How could this be?

How could this be, when we are told that the whole country wants President Trump impeached?!

How could this be in the swing state of Wisconsin and the democrat stronghold of California?

acnnelect 7

And these republicans both won by substantial margins.  These were not wins that were eked out.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.”

Thank you, Mr. Wulfsohn, and thank God for Fox News.

If it wasn’t for Fox News, we would have no choice but to consume the democrat, mainstream media, fake news tripe.

“Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998.”

This isn’t news?

This doesn’t deserve ANY type of mention?

“Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.”

acnnelect 1

“Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.”

Tiffany was not only “able to maintain” control of Wisconsin’s 7th district seat, he crushed his democrat opponent.  So much so that her name isn’t even mentioned, so as not to completely ruin her political future I suppose.

I have none of those concerns.  Her name is Tricia Zunker.

acnnelect 9

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, “Because of Wisconsin’s status as a swing state in the 2020 presidential election, the May special election is expected to be closely watched for signs of strength or weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign. Trump needs large margins of victory in Wisconsin’s rural areas to win the state, and the race is seen by many as a test of Democrats’ ability to reach rural voters.”

Ha!  So, I guess they failed the test.

acnnelect 3

“Past special elections in recent memory generated plenty of news coverage, particularly when Democrats pick up congressional seats as pundits often hype that such victories are a ‘bellwether’ for what’s to come in the upcoming elections.”

“However, there was little to zero mention of Garcia and Tiffany’s victories on any of the major news networks.”

“None of the three broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired any coverage of the special election races during Wednesday’s morning programs. The networks skipped such coverage in the evening news shows as well.”

“CNN completely ignored both races throughout the day. Meanwhile, MSNBC once mentioned Garcia’s likely win on Wednesday morning but ignored Tiffany’s victory.”

acnnelect 5

acnnelect 10

Like I have been saying…, the fake news, mainstream media is really just an arm of the democrat party.

We’ve gone past the concern over biased media coverage to calling out these news outlets for what they are…, contrived and constructed liberal propaganda.

How else can you explain their behavior?

And if you’re a democrat…, is that OK?

If that is OK with you…, then you’ve gone from being a victim of the left’s deceit to being a part of the problem.

You’ve graduated from fool to tool.

acnnelect 6

Anyone who is objective and fair-minded cannot be a democrat.

If we’re going to hand money out, let’s REALLY hand some money out!

Howard Gleckman, for Forbes Media, says, “Congress is about to pass [actually has already passed] another coronavirus relief bill, adding another $500 billion to the more than $2 trillion it already spent to support business and individuals in the midst of the pandemic. And it likely will approve trillions more in future stimulus in the coming months.”

atrillion 8

And spending money “to support business and individuals” is just a portion of the spending.  There is quite a bit of spending in these “relief” bills that goes to the states and to a whole collection of non-covid related entities just looking for a hand-out.

And what do WE get from all of this spending?  WE get like $1,200…, if we’re lucky.  Many of us will get ZERO because we’re so wealthy or don’t qualify somehow.  Ha!

So, WE may get a measly $1,200 while these other governmental charities get millions and billions of dollars thrown at them.

Our representatives in Washington are already starting to argue over where the next round of trillions of dollars in “relief” spending will go.

atrillion 7

Allow me to offer a suggestion.

JUST GIVE THE PEOPLE SOME RELIEF!

If you’re going to waste OUR money…, “waste it on us!

In your own words Pelosi, quit throwing all of us “crumbs!”

atrillion 5

I’m pretty sure we would do a better job of spending our money than the government does.

Let’s amend that to ABSOLUTELY SURE.

If we gave EVERY adult in the country (209 million people) $25,000, it would cost us 5.225 trillion dollars…, or about what we’ll end up spending anyway in total, anyway.

atrillion 9

If we wanted to get a little crazier, we could give every adult $50,000 at a cost of 10.45 trillion dollars.

And really, what’s another 5 trillion bucks between friends?

No one else seems to be worried about spending money we don’t have.

So, what does a trillion of something look like, anyway?

The United States national debt is currently over 20 trillion dollars. We hear these HUGE numbers thrown around all the time, but does anyone really have a grip on what a BILLION or a TRILLION of anything really looks like?

Just for a refresher on how you get to a Trillion and beyond, recall from grade school the implications of adding three zeros after a “one”.

1 = One

1,000 = One Thousand

1,000,000 = One Million

1,000,000,000 = One Billion

1,000,000,000,000 = One Trillion

1,000,000,000,000,000 = One Quadrillion

1,000,000,000,000,000,000 = One Quintillion

Quadrillions?

Quintillions?

Our national deficit is only in the lower trillions now.

We’ve got a lot of room to grow our debt!

In fact, we’ll never run out of bigger numbers!

That’s just a fact.

The Imagination Station website asks, “OK, so what does a trillion look like?”

The problem with most answers to questions like this is that they try to put it into perspective by relating it to things normal people have no perspective for. For instance, did you know that one trillion dollars would stretch nearly from the earth to the sun?

I don’t know when the last time you traveled from the earth to the sun, but for me this comparison is just as mind-boggling as the concept of a trillion of something.

One Million Pennies

atrillion 1

The Megapenny project uses something a lot more common to most of us, a penny. Most people have a few in their pockets or in a jar and it provides a much better sense of scale. Round up 16 of them, stack them on top of each other into a little pile and it’s one inch tall. Place them side by side in a line and they stretch out one foot.

So much for what’s in your pockets, now break open your piggy banks and gather up one million pennies. One million pennies creates a wall four feet wide, five feet tall and one foot thick.

One Billion Pennies

atrillion 2

Stepping up to a billion, things start to change as we start imagining stacks of pennies the size of a typical school bus. Five school buses to be exact.

Add another three zeros and we begin to enter into the realm of the national debt (in dollars – not pennies). One trillion pennies would create a mind boggling cube with edges nearly as long as a football field.

One Trillion Pennies

atrillion 3

Of course, the final step here is to image twenty (20) of these cubes of pennies. Each penny representing one dollar of the national debt. The physical representation of large numbers is an interesting way to wrap your head around what it means to say something is in the billions or trillions, and beyond.

atrillion 6

So, Congress…, if you’re going to throw all of this “funny money” around…, remember…, it’s not YOUR money, it’s OUR money, and we want some of it back without it having to filter down through your wasteful and misdirected bureaucracy.

If we aren’t in the middle of an emergency, what would you call it?!

Jacob Pramuk for CNBC reports that, “The House will not return to Washington until May 4 ‘unless it has to pass an emergency bill.’”

“The Senate is set to return April 20 as of now.”

“The House will not come back to Washington until at least May 4 unless it needs to pass emergency measures to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, [Democrat] Majority Leader [A congressman from Maryland, and the second ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives behind Nancy Pelosi] Steny Hoyer’s office told representatives Monday.”

acongress 1

“House members, most of whom have been in their districts for all of April as Covid-19 spreads, will not have to travel to Washington before May 4 ‘absent an emergency,’ the Maryland Democrat’s office said. It added that lawmakers would get ‘sufficient notice’ if they have to travel to Washington to vote on coronavirus legislation.”

“Absent an emergency?”

Pelosi and Hoyer don’t think what the country is experiencing right now is an emergency?

acongress 3

The money set aside for small business relief, $350 billion, has already run out, and many small businesses and their employees are in jeopardy.

That’s not an emergency enough for you, Steny?

That’s not an emergency enough for you, Nancy?

acongress 2

“As efforts to stall the coronavirus’ spread have wrecked the U.S. economy…, Senate Republicans last week tried to pass a bill to inject $250 billion more into a small business loan program set up in the rescue legislation. Democrats blocked the measure, then the GOP rejected a Democratic counter offer that included more money for states and hospitals fighting the pandemic, along with funding for food assistance programs.”

Can we not just increase the money available to small businesses, and then address all of this other stuff with a separate bill?

Do we really have to muddy the waters every time with every bill?

It really shouldn’t be that difficult.

acongress 8

“While Democrats have held some discussions with the Trump administration on the issue, neither major party’s congressional leaders have showed a willingness to back down from their demands yet.”

Just like the band on board The Titanic playing while the ship was sinking.

acongress 4

“Republicans refused to back down over the weekend. In a joint statement Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, ‘they reject the Democrats’ reckless threat to continue blocking job-saving funding unless we renegotiate unrelated programs which are not in similar peril.’”

Like I said, “Can we not just increase the money available to small businesses, and then address all of this other stuff with a separate bill?”

“While Congress has been out of the Capitol, the coronavirus has taken a steeper human and economic toll. U.S. Covid-19 cases now top 560,000, and the disease has been linked to more than 22,800 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.”

“Meanwhile, more than 16 million people have filed new jobless claims over a three-week period.”

The political hypocrisy and disingenuousness just never ceases to amaze me. 

Establishment and liberal “swamp monster,” Congressman Elijah Cummings, was lauded as the “next coming” by fellow “swamp monsters,” democrats and republicans alike, at his state funeral, ala the previously deceased establishment Senator John McCain.

Brooke Singman and Alex Pappas of Fox News reported that, “The late Elijah Cummings, the powerful and long-serving Baltimore congressman who rose to chair the House Oversight Committee, was honored at a dignitary-packed funeral Friday where eulogies praised his mastery of Congress and commitment to constituents — but also took a political turn with implicit swipes at the Trump administration.”

aelijah 6

So what we have here basically is the political equivalent of The Academy Awards.  In this case, political elites taking turns praising another political elite for being a political elite.

Truth be told…, none of these political elites have ever really accomplished anything for their constituents or our country.  The only thing they managed to do was get elected and then get re-elected, over and over again, with the exception of Hillary that is!

Speaking of Hillary…, “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised the Democratic lawmaker as a ‘great man, moral leader, and a friend,’ (that’s a lie, a lie and a lie) while comparing him to the Old Testament prophet of the same name.”

Oh, this oughta be good!

‘“Our Elijah, like the prophet, could call down fire from heaven,’ Clinton said. ‘But he also prayed and worked for healing.  He weathered storms and earthquakes but never lost his faith.’”

Ya…, she went there.  She compared Elijah Cummings to The Prophet Elijah from The Bible.

First of all…, Hillary Clinton needs to keep The Bible and everyone in it out of her corrupt and lying mouth.

Then she uses The Bible, which she really knows nothing about, to attack President Trump and the First Lady…, at a funeral!

‘“Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,’ Clinton said.”

I’m telling you…, these people, these democrats, have NO decency and NO decorum.

“The line drew loud applause from the chamber, as she later raised the question of what Americans can do to ‘make sure we kept our democracy intact.’”

In the case of these democrats…, “democracy” means “our swampy and socialistic control.”

“But in between the politically tinged lines were dedications to Cummings’ legacy.”

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called him the ‘north star’ of Congress.”

She is obviously “directionally challenged,” along with her many other psychological conditions.

‘“His integrity and character, his can-do spirit, made him a guiding light in the Congress,’ Clinton similarly said. ‘He pushed back against the abuse of power.  He was unwavering in his defense of our democracy, he had little tolerance for those who put party before country or partisanship before truth.’”

Wow.  This might be the biggest bunch of horse manure ever packed into three sentences.

‘“He lifted up the next generation of leaders, he even worked a few miracles,’ Clinton said. ‘And he kept reminding us life is no dress rehearsal. The American people want to live their lives without fear of their leaders and as leaders, we have a responsibility to keep the promises made when running for office to make the lives of Americans better.’”

Like I said earlier…, he really didn’t do anything besides manage to get re-elected, over and over again…, while playing his role as a liberal puppet for his liberal, white masters.

I’m sorry, but it was, and is, what it was and is.

‘“He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity,’ his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said last week.”

aelijah 7

Ms. Rockeymoore Cummings is now the heir apparent to her ex-husbands’ congressional seat, representing Baltimore, Maryland.  The fine people of Baltimore can then expect the same level of ineptitude from her as they had come to expect from their former representative.

“In the House, Cummings, D-Md., had built a substantial power base [and a substantial bank account on his $170K a year salary]. At the time of his death, he was chairman of the Oversight Committee and a leading voice in the Congressional Black Caucus.  He played a key role in the impeachment inquiry into Trump.”

Yes…, he took his marching orders well from his establishment masters, in his persecution of President Trump, even though President Trump has done more for the African-American community than any prior president, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln.

It was reported that he was still signing subpoenas from his hospital bed, “fighting for our democracy” with his last breaths.

Yes…, such a “noble” tool he was.

If you don’t want me to speak ill of the dead, then don’t use the dead’s funeral as a platform to speak ill of my president and his wife.

The “Biased, Liberal Propaganda, Fake News Media” strikes again!!!

A day after President Trump held a rally in North Carolina, the two House Republican candidates there were victorious.

Dan Bishop, in the ninth district won by 2 percentage points, while Greg Murphy won the third district by 25 percentage points!

elecnc 4

So what were the headlines this morning at CNN and MSNBC?

elecnc 3

“House Republicans escaped disaster in North Carolina, but…”

“GOP’s narrow North Carolina victory is bad news for Trump in 2020”

“Does a tight win for NC Republican Dan Bishop spell 2020 trouble for Trump?”

And…

“Alarm bells should be ringing at Trump HQ after N.C. House scare!”

Can you imagine what they would have been like had the Republicans lost?

No liberal bias on display here at all!  NOT!

elecnc 5

elecnc 6

Over $20 million was spent on this election!

The fact of the matter is that the Democrats had a reasonably good candidate and invested millions and millions of dollars in this election for the ninth district…, AND STILL LOST.

That is the story here.

Another story here is President Trump’s influence on these elections.

I saw an article on the MSNBC website that stated, “Dems admit ‘Trump bump’ helped in North Carolina special congressional election.”

elecnc 1

Interestingly enough, the article was taken down shortly after I saw it.

It just disappeared!

Can you imagine that?

It must have been deemed “too positive” towards The President to be allowed to continue to be viewed.

elecnc 11

And how could there even be a “Trump bump” with his approval numbers supposedly dropping, the economy going into a supposed recession, along with him supposedly being a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, and any other “ist” you can think of?

elecnc 10

Like I said, “The ‘Biased, Liberal Propaganda, Fake News Media’ strikes again!!!”

WINNING!

Two ideas, regarding immigration problems, which make too much sense to ever happen!

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!

A couple politicians have actually been discovered using their heads and coming up with some creative ideas!

Imagine that?

This is the kind of stuff that could start giving politicians a good name!

The first idea was proposed by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

His idea is to use confiscated drug money to help build the wall on our southern border with Mexico…, since the Democrats in Congress can’t see fit to allocate any money for this endeavor, even though President Trump was elected amid cries at his rallies to “BUILD THAT WALL!”

ideas 8

Dominick Mastrangelo of The Washington Examiner reported that “Ted Cruz wants to use money from the ‘El Chapo’ drug empire to ‘build the wall!’”

ideas 1

“The reparations to the U.S. taxpayer are justified, prosecutors said, because Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman acquired his billions as part of his drug empire that directly led to the death of thousands of drug-addicted Americans and victims of violent drug-related crime.”

ideas 2

I would say that “reparations” by Guzman are not only justified…, they should be considered a small and required attempt at compensation for all of the suffering he has caused.

“Prosecutors stated Guzman can pay the sum because ‘criminal forfeiture is viewed as part of the sentencing process,’ according to Newsweek.”

“After a lengthy trial, Guzman was found guilty on multiple drug-related felonies and will likely face life in prison.”

Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama also deserves some credit for introducing legislation earlier in the year, “that would reserve up to $14 billion seized from ‘El Chapo’ for the construction project.”

‘“People across the United States are desperate for a sign that Washington is ready and willing to protect them from dangerous criminals and porous borders,’ Cruz wrote a month later in an op-ed for the Washington Post. ‘Congress has two clear mandates from the American people: secure the border and save money. So let’s build a wall, and make El Chapo pay for it.’”

Absolutely…, who could argue with that?

The second idea was proposed by Representative Lance Gooden from Texas.

ideas 3

His idea is to use DNA testing to aid border officials in determining whether children are really with their families, or being used by child traffickers to get across the border.

Brilliant!

Adam Shaw of Fox News reported that, “Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas., introduced the End Child Trafficking Now Act on Monday. The bill would implement DNA testing at the border, and punish those caught trying to cheat the system with up to 10 years in prison.”

I’d say 10 years would be a good start.

“The proposal comes in response to growing awareness of the fraudulent use of children by adult migrants to gain access to the U.S. The 1997 Flores court settlement limits how long children can be held in custody to just 20 days, meaning that adult migrants claiming to be family members will also be released into the homeland as their asylum cases are considered.”

ideas 4

‘“Unfortunately we see that all too often now … adults that are bringing children with them that are not their own to try and take advantage of what they perceive as a loophole in our law that would allow them to be released into the United States,’ Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan told the House Oversight Committee last week, as he described how a DNA test helped thwart one migrant who allegedly ‘bought’ a child in a bid to exploit loopholes.”

‘“We’ve had egregious cases, including a 51-year-old man who bought a six-month child for $80 in Guatemala and admitted that when confronted with a DNA test by a Homeland Security Investigations agent conducting a pilot at one of our border stations,’ he said.”

“He also testified about the problem of ‘child recycling’ that authorities were investigating, where children are used multiple times to get adults into the U.S.”

ideas 5

‘“There are one in five cases, according to ICE, of groups of people coming over with children, saying “these are our children” — when they say that they get preferential treatment through the asylum process — and then we have later found out they are not even related, so the DNA testing helps us to determine if they’re telling the truth or not,’ Gooden told Fox News.”

“Tests would consist of mouth swabs similar to those already in use by the State Department. The agency says that such tests are 99.5 percent accurate.”

Representative Gooden added, “I would be shocked to hear of anyone being opposed to preventing child trafficking, but I’ve been shocked before.”

Yes…, I’m afraid we’re all getting used to being “shocked” by how low and by how political some of our democrat friend will stoop.

You have to wonder sometimes if these loopholes are really loopholes, or if these ways of beating the system were intentionally built into the law?

Some people might be surprised by that accusation, but the law is there to be changed and corrected at any time, and Congress is refusing to do so.

Doesn’t their inaction indicate that they are okay with what’s happening with these children at the border?

What else could their inaction indicate?

ideas 6

Like I said in the beginning…, these are two ideas which make way too much sense to ever happen.
