The New York Times cries, “Democracy is not going to save itself!”

Ahhh, the noble and misguided New York Times.

What are we referring to here?

David Montanaro of Fox News reported, “In a new op-ed Friday, author and columnist Michelle Goldberg warned that President Trump is “unbound,” arguing that his remark this week on potentially accepting dirt from foreign countries on his political rivals shows he has “no loyalty” to the United States.”

“In the New York Times piece, titled ‘Trump to America: Who’s Going to Stop Me?’ Goldberg questions whether the ‘alarming’ moment will galvanize the opposition.”

‘“Maybe the insult of it can jolt the country out of its current stasis,’ she wrote.”

OK…, time out Michelle.

President Trump was only talking…, responding to a hypothetical question posed to him.

fake 4

While your friend, Hillary Clinton, not only accepted “dirt” from a foreign country, during the 2016 election…, she actually paid to get that “dirt.”

Where was your outrage at her actual actions as opposed to the President’s hypothetical words?

fake 5

I just can’t believe you are that ignorant Michelle, so I just have to assume you are simply a manipulative, liberal propagandist.

“Trump said in an interview with ABC News that he would listen to information from foreign governments, saying that ‘there isn’t anything wrong with listening.’ He also gave conflicting answers on whether he’d contact the FBI, saying at one point that he would not.”

Who could blame the President if he had second thoughts on sharing anything with the FBI, since they were illegally spying on him and basically planning a coup against him over there.

Just some minor considerations that Michelle Goldberg would never dignify with a mention (propaganda by omission).

“Goldberg said the so-called Trump ‘Resistance is exhausted by last year’s push to retake the House and deflated by the anti-climactic aftermath of the Mueller report.’”

Awww…, do all of the hardworking, anti-American, liberal babies need a nappy wappy?

Good!

‘“For two and a half years, as Trump has treated his oath of office the way he’s rumored to have treated a Moscow hotel bed, it’s felt as if something has to give. But day by day, what’s giving is the will to stop him,’ she wrote.”

I’m not really sure what Michelle is talking about here, but I hope she’s not referring to allegations in the discredited Steele dossier!

In either case, her message here is confused one and an illegitimate one, as well as being disingenuous.  All qualities of a good little liberal “journalist!”

fake 3

‘“Two years ago the president basically admitted to obstruction of justice on television when he told an interviewer, Lester Holt of NBC, that he’d fired James Comey as F.B.I. director because of the Russia investigation. Now he’s telling us, again on TV, that having gotten away with accepting foreign help in an election once, he’s planning to do it again. I know everyone’s tired. But democracy is not going to save itself,’ she concluded.”

Geez Michelle…, you are just full of disinformation, and full of sh%t!

I’ll tell you what…, you go ahead and worry about saving whatever you think “democracy” is, and President Trump and the rest of us will continue to worry about saving America!

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

The Office of Special Counsel recommends firing the President’s counselor, Kellyanne Conway, over alleged Hatch Act violations!?

First of all…, what the heck is “The Office of Special Counsel?!”

And second of all, what the heck is the Hatch Act?!

According to online-sources, “The United States Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is a permanent independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency.”

Please note that “independent” is usually a code word that actually means “liberal.”

“The OSC’s primary mission is the safeguarding of the merit system in federal employment by protecting employees and applicants from ‘prohibited personnel practices,’ especially reprisal for ‘whistleblowing.’”

Ahhh yes…, “safeguarding” and “whistleblowing.”  Let’s be clear…, the only “safeguarding” that takes place is reserved for members of “the swamp.”  Regarding “whistleblowing,” the OSC protects federal employees who are whistleblowers UNLESS that whistleblowing has to do with liberal activity or liberal individuals…, in which case the whistleblowers are either ignored or vilified.

“The agency also operates a secure channel for federal whistleblower disclosures of violations of law, rule, or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; abuse of authority; and substantial and specific danger to public health and safety.”

For example…, how many charges of “gross mismanagement” or “gross waste of funds” have you ever heard come out of this office before?

None, right?

I sure don’t remember any.

So, I guess there has never been any “gross mismanagement” or “gross waste of funds” in the federal government!

That’s really good to know!

I’m sooo relieved!

Again…, this “secure channel” is really a “secure filter” that determines whether the allegation ever sees the light of day.

“In addition, OSC issues advice on the Hatch Act and enforces its restrictions on partisan political activity by government employees.”

This is the area we are dealing with in this case.

“OSC has a staff of around 120 and is currently run by Henry Kerner.”

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “The Office of Special Counsel recommended Thursday that Kellyanne Conway be fired from the federal government for violating the Hatch Act on ‘numerous occasions.’”

“The OSC said, in a report released Thursday, that White House Counselor Conway violated the Hatch Act by ‘disparaging Democratic presidential candidates’ while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”

kelly 5

‘“Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions. Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system—the rule of law,’ the OSC said in a statement Thursday, noting that Conway has been a ‘repeat offender.’”

In review…, the Hatch Act deals with enforcing restrictions on partisan political activity by government employees.

Please enlighten me as to which spokesperson, for any president, has dealt in a non-partisan manner?

If I were to list all of the government employees here that were ever “guilty” of partisan political statements and activities here, the list would virtually be endless.

kelly 8

What we have here is another case of “swamp fever” and/or “Trump derangement syndrome” rearing its ugly head.

kelly 7

kelly 6

These people have to be kidding, right?

Meanwhile, “The White House on Thursday blasted the OSC ruling as ‘unprecedented.’”

Yes…, and that’s EXACTLY what it was…, “UNPRECEDENTED.”

‘“The Office of Special Counsel’s (OSC) unprecedented actions against Kellyanne Conway are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process.  Others, of all political views, have objected to the OSC’s unclear and unevenly applied rules which have a chilling effect on free speech for all federal employees,’ deputy press secretary Steven Groves said in a statement Thursday. ‘Its decisions seem to be influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations – and perhaps OSC should be mindful of its own mandate to act in a fair, impartial, non-political manner, and not misinterpret or weaponize the Hatch Act.’”

kelly 3

Well, that’s really putting it nicely.

What happens when The Office of Special Counsel is the one displaying “partisan political activity by government employees?”

Just sayin’.

Senator Bernie Sanders and “the big lie(s).”

Watching some news clips recently from a couple of Bernie Sanders’ campaign speeches, Bernie impressed upon me the level of disdain he and many of his friends actually have for President Trump.

It is so apparent that they are all deathly afraid of President Trump and how he is able to drag them and their motives out into the sunlight.

They will literally say and/or do ANYTHING to delegitimize and obstruct him.

He began by stating that President Trump, “is the worst president in the history of the country.”

bernie 10

He then said that President Trump’s administration is, “the most corrupt administration in history.”

He then added that President Trump “is a pathological liar.”

Not just a liar, mind you, but a “pathological liar.”

We’ll get back to this pathological liar thing later.

anti bernie sanders memes Pretty Anti Government Jokes

The democrats and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” certainly have pushed these three false narratives, but they are all undeniably unfounded by any measure. But this is the way of the socialist and fascist political establishment.

bernie 4

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

I believe Joseph Goebbels would be proud of Bernie Sanders’ efforts in the regard!

bernie 1

Bernie then proceeded to accuse President Trump of being:

A racist.

A sexist.

A bigot.

A religious bigot.

A homophobe.

A xenophobe.

A transphobe.

And last but not least…, an Islamophobe.

Then, of course, we have a whole list of things President Trump is “anti.”

He’s anti-this, anti-that, anti-this and anti-that.

Is there ANY negative type of connotation that hasn’t been attached to President Trump?

And they complain about President Trump’s name calling!

The only name he ever called Bernie was “crazy!”

Now there’s a name I think you could make a case for!

The Washington Post…, “Democracy dies on its pages.” 

I’m responding to a recent article in The Washington Post titled, “Sarah Sanders Watch: ‘Mouthpiece for fascism’?”

The article is by Erik Wemple, a media critic for The Washington Post, whose tag line is “Democracy dies in darkness.”

It must be getting pretty “dark” over there at the old Washington Post.

sanders 4

In the article, Mr. Wemple whines about the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, not having had a traditional White House briefing in quite a while.

Do you really wonder why that is Mr. Wemple, or are you just pretending not to know?

Well…, in case it is the former, I’ll clue you in.

First of all, it’s not written anywhere that these press briefings have to occur at all.

Second, most of the media that attended these briefings were not interested in getting briefed.  They were only interested in attacking President Trump, his administration, and Sarah Sanders.

Is it any wonder this is one tradition The President isn’t too concerned about honoring?

Mr. Wemple then continues to whine that Sarah Sanders seems to prefer to discuss her talking points with more “sympathetic” Fox News interviewers.

sanders 3

I don’t think “Sympathetic” is quite the right word here.  I think I would go with the term “fair and balanced.”

It wasn’t too long ago that I can remember Obama’s press secretaries avoiding the reporters from Fox News as opposed to any of the remaining horde of truly “sympathetic,” liberal propaganda reporters.

I can also recall the Obama administration actually spying on reporters who didn’t play by his “swampy” rules…, but I digress.

Mr. Wemple then proceeds to dredge up the tired “obstruction of justice” topic…, again…, claiming, “The Mueller report documented close to a dozen instances of possible obstruction of justice by President Trump,” while claiming Mueller “did not charge any crimes in deference to Justice Department policy toward sitting presidents.”

If I’ve said this once I’ve said this a hundred times…, IF ROBERT MUELLER COULD HAVE CHARGED PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G…, BELIEVE ME, HE WOULD HAVE.

IF ROBERT MUELLER COULD HAVE RECOMMENDED CHARGING PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G…, BELIEVE ME, HE WOULD HAVE.

Mr. Wemple then continues to cry about Sarah Sanders “hitting back” at charges made by various democrats, and actually defending The President and his administration.

You do understand that is precisely what her job is don’t you Mr. Wemple?

sanders 2

He then refers to a tweet by Alec Baldwin (that wise old sage and ever on duty guardian of democracy…, cough, cough), where he referred to Sarah Sanders as a “mouthpiece-for-fascism…,” a claim Mr. Wemple obviously supports.

Fascism?

Fascism, Mr. Wemple?

Ok…, let’s talk about fascism and fascists a little bit.

Have you heard of The Poynter Institute, Mr. Wemple?  I’m sure you have, but most other people haven’t.  It’s kind of a well-kept and camouflaged secret.  In a nutshell, The Poynter Institute is a boot camp for liberal, socialist, fascist, “journalists.”  It’s the kind of “journalism” school that Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, could really appreciate, and a school that is well represented by many members of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” who make Washington D.C. their home.

Oh…, and by the way…, was it Sarah Sanders who was pushing the false narrative of Russian collusion for the last 2 years, or was it the “liberal propaganda,” “mainstream” media?

Who again are the fascists attempting to control the media?

In addition…, who in “the media” are the ones accounting for over 90% negative articles concerning President Trump?  If you take out the positive stories (or at least the non-negative ones) by Fox News, that means the rest of “the media” is basically 100% negative 100% of the time.  And saying that doesn’t even cause me to flinch.

Who again are the fascists attempting to control the narrative through negative propaganda and by omission?

Your cover has been blown Eric Wemple.  Just like the cover has been blown for all of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” since President Trump ran for president.

The “mainstream” media being anywhere close to fair and balanced is the problem here, not Sarah Sanders.

John “the weasel,” “the rat,” “the snitch,” the squealer,” “the stool pigeon,” “the tattletale,” “the back-stabber,” “the double-crosser,” “Judas” Dean is back and getting a little attention from our pathetic democrats in Congress.

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “Former Nixon White House counsel John Dean said Monday, after testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, that he is ‘honored’ to be considered an enemy by President Trump.”

He’s “honored to be considered an enemy” of the President of the United States.

dean 1

That makes him an enemy of the state, doesn’t it?

That makes him a subversive, doesn’t it?

That may even make him a traitor, does it not?

Well…, it’s not too far of a leap from being a “Judas” or a “double-crosser” to being a traitor.

‘“I think he was disbarred and he went to prison.  Other than that, he’s doing a great job,’ Trump said Monday afternoon.”

Ha!

Joe diGenova, a former US Attorney for the District of Columbia and an Independent Counsel, and now a contributor at Fox News added, “As many have pointed out, Dean is a convicted felon who was disbarred following his criminal role in the Watergate scandal. More important for this farce of a hearing, though, is that Dean has absolutely no first-hand knowledge of the events in question. He’s no more qualified to testify about Russiagate than CNN’s Jim Acosta is to testify about real news.”

“Dean has become a liberal activist since getting out of jail, publishing no fewer than four books blasting Republicans, including one in which he called for President George W. Bush to be impeached long before Donald Trump even announced his run for president.”

So he didn’t have any problems with Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama at all, but Ronald Reagan, The Bushes, and President Trump were and are “threats” to our country?

“Dean, a CNN contributor (So he isn’t biased at all!), was asked by Anderson Cooper about Trump attacking him as a ‘loser for many years’ and a ‘sleazebag attorney.’”

dean 3

‘“Well, I’m honored to be on his enemies list,’ Dean responded. ‘I was able to make Nixon’s at the end, and so I’m pleased that I’m on Trump’s given my feelings about the threat he is to this country.’”

Remember…, when these liberals refer to the “country,” they really mean “the swamp.” The really mean the establishment politicians and bureaucrats who are only concerned with their own backsides and the rest of the country be damned.

‘“One of the reasons that I did what I did back during Watergate was the thought that this will never happen again. And one of the reasons I’ve had a knot in my stomach, one of the reasons I’m on CNN is because I’m deeply troubled by the presidency we’re living with,’ he said.”

Yes…, please…, try and justify to us again why you flipped on your boss and snitched him out.

dean 6

News flash…, Watergate was 45 years ago!  45 years ago!  Nobody cares anymore!  Most of the people in this country were not even born yet when John “the loser” Dean was spilling his guts, to save his own backside, on live TV every day.

dean 4

Oh, and John…, you have a “knot” in your stomach because that’s what happens to nervous little weasels, like yourself…, you get scared…, because deep down…, not even too deep down…, you’re just a liberal chicken sh%t who wants some attention and any validation he can get.

“Dean was hammered by House Republicans on the Judiciary Committee Monday. At one point, the hearing room broke out into laughter, as Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz grilled Dean for turning Nixon comparisons into a profitable ‘cottage industry’ for himself.”

“Dean assisted with the Watergate cover up and pleaded guilty to obstruction before becoming a key prosecution witness.”

Maybe Mr. Dean could really put his expertise to work and predict for us who will become the new “John Dean,” regarding the current investigation of the investigators at the FBI and the DOJ.  Which of these weasels going to start singing to save their own backsides, ala John “the weasel” Dean?  Peter Strzok?  Andrew McCabe?  Bruce Ohr?  Lisa Page?  It’s hard to predict because there are so many rats to choose from.

dean 5

In summary, “… outside of Dean’s fantasy land, there is no similarity [between the phony Russian collusion scandal and Watergate]. In Watergate, there were real underlying crimes. Operatives linked to the Nixon Campaign committed numerous felonies as they broke into the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters in the Watergate Hotel.”

“After that, genuine obstruction of justice took place, committed in large part by the Democrats’ own star witness, then-White House Counsel John Dean, who physically destroyed evidence as part of the cover-up.”

“In ‘Russiagate,’ however, there was no underlying crime. There was only the Democrat fantasy, cooked up by the Hillary Clinton campaign, that the Trump Campaign had ‘colluded’ with Russians to steal the 2016 election. That was a lie, as the Mueller report conclusively established.”

“There was also no obstruction of justice. Given that the president knew all along that he was innocent, nothing he did could possibly have constituted the ‘corrupt intent’ necessary for an obstruction charge.”

And that, as they say folks, is that.

If there wasn’t any negative news about President Trump there’d be no news at all!

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is just relentless when it comes bashing our president.

In an editorial on the “Investor’s Business Daily” website, they claim, “Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage of His Presidency: Study”

trump neg 7

They continue by saying, “Anti-Trump Media: To say that the big networks haven’t exactly had a love affair with Donald Trump, as they plainly did with President Obama, is an understatement. A new survey shows that not only is coverage of Trump overwhelmingly negative, but the president’s biggest accomplishment — the roaring economy — gets almost no attention.”

No…, not “almost no attention,” NO attention!

trump neg 9

“What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: ‘Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive.’”

I would argue that even these numbers are a misnomer.  I would say news coverage is 92% negative, 7% is just “non-negative” and 1% or less are actually positive.

trump neg 2

“Moreover, the very focus of what the media cover is highly selective. Some two-thirds of the Trump coverage came from five topics, including the Russia investigation, immigration, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination, North Korea, and U.S.-Russia relations.

Let’s see, what’s missing from that list? Oh yes, the one thing that’s overwhelmingly positive for President Trump: the economy.”

In other words…, propaganda by omission.

“If we don’t report it, it didn’t happen, or it’s not important.”

Even when they report something of a positive nature, it always has to come with a caveat.

For example, here we have typical negative Trump headline by Joe Williams for FOX Business:

“US adds 75,000 jobs in May, far less than expected.”

Can we not just be glad that we added 75,000 jobs in May?

And what about the unemployment rate in the country that remains at 3.6 percent…, the lowest since 1969?  I haven’t heard much about that.

Propaganda by omission and the “but” news.

President Trump cut taxes for everyone, but…

President Trump has brought manufacturing jobs back to America, but…

President Trump is making NATO allies finally pay their fair share, but…

President Trump is making other countries deal fairly with us regarding trade, but…

But, but, but.

trump neg 6

In addition to the “but” news, we also see bizarre, negative, fake news articles that just leaves you scratching your head.

For example:

“Washington Post columnist links Trump’s UK fashion choices to life missteps.”

By Bradford Betz for Fox News.

“If you can’t properly wear a tux, you’re going to have a lot of problems in life, according to Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan.”

trump neg 1

“Her 965-word, June 5 article dresses down President Trump, the First Lady– and to a lesser extent– his family – for what she called poor fashion sensibilities during an appearance the Buckingham Palace Banquet this week.”

“Givhan goes on to equate fashion with diplomacy. With this equation, Givhan’s concludes, we can gain subtle insights into the president’s mind.’

What?

The “fashion critic” feels the need to join in the Trump bashing as well?

It also appears that “the fashion critic,” an esteemed and necessary position in its own right, is also a qualified psychoanalyst!

Then we have another article published by “Yahoo Style UK,” titled:

“Disrespectful Melania Trump criticized for leaving sunglasses on during D-Day ceremony.”

Excuse me?

How is this this being “disrespectful?”

trump neg1306-donald-trump-dday.w700.h700

If anything, Yahoo is being disrespectful of the First Lady.

Then we have an article for the “Style” section of “The Daily Beast,” by   Alaina Demopoulos and Tim Teeman titled:

“Is That a Hat or UFO? Melania and Ivanka Trump Bid a Fashionably Fierce Farewell to U.K.”

Can you ever imagine these people taking pot shots at Michelle Obama’s wardrobe?

Of course not.

The article went on and on about all of the poor Trump fashion choices in their opinion, and finished off by saying, “The queen, meanwhile, looked her usual, utterly on-point distinctive self, in a wonderful hot pink coat dress and hat (with non-life-threatening brim), while imminently doomed British Prime Minister Theresa May donned a curious spearmint coat, with turned in collars, over white dress and a hat that was a complementary satellite dish shape to Melania’s UFO.”

trump neg 3

So the bottom line is…, all of the fashion choices made by royals, socialists and liberals are exquisite, while those made by conservatives are horrendous.

Lastly, we have a typical “fake news,” “liberal propaganda” article by   Heather Timmons, titled, “Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas presidential poll.”

Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump in Texas?

Of course not.

They don’t tell us that the poll question that was asked was, “Who is the creepiest presidential candidate?”

In this instance, Joe Biden wins hands down!

Try and impeach President Trump!  We dare ‘ya!  We double dare ‘ya!  We double-dog dare ‘ya!!!

What do you call it when an investigator ignores obvious evidence to pursue desired evidence and a desired outcome?

This is what you would call a prejudiced witch hunt.

impeach 6

This is exactly what Robert Mueller, and his partisan team, did for over two years.

I heard Judge Andrew Napolitano, a contributor on Fox News say we should remember that “Robert Mueller was a Marine” and that he still felt that, “Robert Mueller was an honorable man.”

I beg to differ Judge.

It looks like Mr. Mueller traded in his “Marine card” for a “swamp card!”

And that’s coming from another Marine.

“Being a Marine” may buy you a certain level of credibility with some people for starters, but it’s not “credibility carte blanche!”

For an example, Lee Harvey Oswald was a Marine.

And how you can describe Mueller as anything remotely close to honorable is beyond me.

Unless you’re talking about “honor among thieves?!”  This is the understanding that criminals do not compromise the activities of other criminals!

If that’s the kind of honor you’re referring to, Judge…, I guess I could go along with that.

impeach 5

Even though Robert Mueller failed in his mission to find (or produce) any legal means to take down President Trump, he’s still doing what he can to pathetically hand-off this invalid and ill-gotten investigation to Congress, so that they may continue their own prejudiced, partisan, witch hunt.

This brings us to Nancy “Chicken Little, the sky is falling” Pelosi!

impeach 3

Could it be that “Chicken Little” is chicken?

Could it be that Nancy “Chicken Little, the sky is falling” Pelosi is the voice of reason for the democrats right now?

That’s a scary thought, but it looks like that is the case.

All it would take would be for Nancy to cut the swamp dogs loose and this impeachment circus would be off and running.

impeach 2

This first part of the impeachment process only “brings charges against a civil officer of government for crimes alleged to have been committed.”

You can charge anyone with anything and allege anyone did anything as well.

impeach 4

“Impeachment” is solely a political process…, not a criminal process.

The “impeachment game” is not a game that would end well for the democrats…, and “Negative Nancy” is at least smart enough to realize that.

She likes being in charge of the U.S. Congress more than she hates President Trump…, but the rest of the democrats in Congress don’t have that position of power to consider.  They’ve invested so much time and effort into this fairy tale that they just can’t get away from taking a bite out of that poison apple!

Poster boy for term limits, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, is off the mark on trade tariffs.  

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa is currently in his seventh term in the U.S. Senate!

Seventh term!

Seven terms is 42 years!

He was first elected in 1980, 39 years ago!

He is 85 years old.

Like I said…, a poster boy for term limits.

tariffs 12id-hate-to-have-someone-ask-me-what-i-did-36356312

I don’t care if these career establishment politicians are republicans, democrats, or disingenuous “independents;” serve your state or your district…, serve a couple terms, then get out and give someone else a chance. The longer these people are entrenched in Washington, the more corrupt and full of themselves they get.  Period.

Too be fair…, Senator Grassley and I generally agree more often than not, but he’s just been in politics way too long.  It’s time.

Stephen Gruber-Miller of USA TODAY reports that, “Chuck Grassley says he tries to remind Trump that tariffs ‘brought about Adolf Hitler’”

He goes on to say that, “Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley on Wednesday blamed a 1930 tariff law for bringing about the Great Depression, the rise of Adolf Hitler and World War II.”

‘“As I like to tell the president when he says he likes tariffs, I try to remind him that Smoot-Hawley brought about the Great Depression, brought about Adolf Hitler, brought about World War II, brought about 60 million people losing their lives as a result of it,’ Grassley said. He was speaking to the National Association of Farm Broadcasting about tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump.”

First of all Mr. Grassley…, let’s be clear…, President Trump has never said he “likes” tariffs.  In fact, he has said exactly the opposite.  He has said he would be happy if all tariffs were removed and there really was “free” trade.

President Trump is only proposing raising tariffs in cases where our trading partners refuse to treat us fairly, after years of one-sidedness I might add.

tariffs 1

This scenario is quite different from the Smoot-Hawley Act, of 90 years ago, that you love to refer to.

The Smoot-Hawley Act INITIATED and ESTABLISHED U.S. tariffs with other countries around the world.

President Trump is only attempting to level out the tariff playing field with countries that have been taking advantage of us and our inept leaders for decades.

tarifffs 5

And yes, Mr. Grassley, Smoot-Hawley may have contributed to “bringing about the Great Depression,” but you attribute the rise of Adolf Hitler, World War II, and the deaths of 60 million people around the world to it as well?

That, I believe, is what people refer to as a stretch!

Hitler’s inherent evilness and his unquenchable desire for power and control were enough to stand on their own. Toss in another madman, Mussolini in Italy, who was happy to tag along, and then add the Empire of Japan to the “axis of evil,” which was also looking to expand its control in the world, and we have a “perfect storm.”

I’m sorry Mr. Grassley…, but all of this was not caused by a tariff increase of up to 20%.

“[President] Trump last week said he would hike tariffs to 25% on $200 billion in Chinese imports after trade negotiations stalled. Chinese officials said in return it would raise tariffs up to 25% on $60 billion in U.S. goods. Trump’s administration also seeks to place tariffs on another $325 billion in Chinese goods.”

“Grassley said on Wednesday that the United States then reduced its tariffs and that poverty has dropped worldwide since the end of World War II.”

“I like to tell the president that globalism has helped everybody. Freeing up trade has helped everybody,” Grassley said.

How would you know Mr. Grassley…, we haven’t had “free trade” in decades and decades…, unless you’re referring to our end of the bargain being free, while the U.S. loses hundreds of thousands of jobs, hundreds of thousands of manufacturing plants, and most of our respect around the world.  Is that the “free trade” that you’re referring to?  Is that what you would propose we do in order to avoid World War III; bend over and let our “friends” and our enemies screw us over?

I think I’ll take a pass on that and see what President Trump do.

WINNING!

 

This article in USA TODAY originally appeared in the Des Moines Register: Chuck Grassley says he tries to remind Trump that tariffs ‘brought about Adolf Hitler.’

Is Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren kidding or is she just “speaking with a forked tongue…, again?”

First of all, I debated whether or not it was even worth commenting about Senator Warren, since she’s only polling like 1%-2% support among democrats in her run for president…, but in the end, I just couldn’t let her get away with her false narratives and “fake news” (lies).

According to David Knowles, an Editor at Yahoo News, “Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday she would take a “hard pass” on a Fox News invitation to hold a televised town hall event, saying she didn’t want to help the conservative network build credibility with advertisers.”

Ha!  Now that’s a true “holier than thou” liberal elite attitude if I ever saw one!

So having you on their network, Elizabeth…, a person who has defrauded the Native Americans in our country…, and our college education system…, that would help “build credibility with advertisers?”

Hmmm.

I think you’re just mad at the Fox News Network for holding you accountable for your racial and cultural identification scandals…, while the rest of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” looked the other way…, but I could be wrong.

“Four of her rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination — Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Kirsten Gillibrand — have agreed to the events, in which candidates take questions from moderators and voters. Sanders and Klobuchar have already appeared.”

‘“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why…— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) May 14, 2019”

‘“Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money,’ Warren wrote.”

Wow!  Pocahontas’ level of confusion is quite impressive!

warren 3

Have any networks demonstrated a more “hate-for-profit” approach than CNN and MSNBC?

No.

Take the last 2 years of fake Russian collusion coverage as well as the “all negative Trump news all the time strategy.”

And which networks exactly have displayed more bigotry and racism than CNN and MSNBC?

No one…, hands down.

And which networks exactly have been caught in intentional lies more often than CNN and MSNBC?

Again…, no one.

So please, Senator Warren…, take your “fake news” story walking.

‘“But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not).’”

Ha!  So “Fox News is struggling?”

Hasn’t Fox News been the #1 cable news in the ratings for like…, forever?

Hasn’t Fox News been destroying CNN and MSNBC by HUGE margins for like…, forever?

She should quit drinking that “firewater!”  Just more “fake news.”

“In March, citing what it called the ‘inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News,’ Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez announced that he would not allow Fox News to broadcast any of the party’s 2020 presidential primary debates.”

Oh…, so “Mr. Tolerance,” Tom Perez won’t “allow” Fox News to be a part of the 2020 democrat presidential primary debates?  Because Fox “has an inappropriate relationship” with President Trump?

What?

warren 10

In Perez’s mind, it’s an “inappropriate relationship” because Fox treats The President fairly.

The President responded by tweeting, “Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2019”

Huh?  You may want to get together with your “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” friends, Mr. Perez, and rethink your position about the debates.

WINNING!
