The Rise of the “Decepticons!”

The term “Decepticon” may be a foreign one to many of my readers, and a very familiar term to others.

The “Decepticons” are a part of the “Transformers” family. That may help more of my readers.  

The name “Decepticon” refers to deception, or attempting to deceive.

That’s where I’m trying to go with this.

Let’s call out some of our political “decepticons”…, those pretending to be Independents, those pretending to be Republicans, and those pretending to be Americans!

Regarding The Senate…, they say the democrats “control The Senate,” which means they control the agenda, and what gets voted on and what doesn’t. This is because the Senate is split 50-50, with Vice President Harris breaking the tie, making it 51-50. 

But wait…, is it really? How can that be?  There are only 48 democrat senators in The Senate.

It’s true.

If you look at the make-up of The Senate, there are 50 republicans, 48 democrats, and 2 “independents.”

The two senators who identify as being an “independent” are Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Angus King of Maine, however, they also say these senators choose to caucus with the democrats, thus adding to their numbers.

I say they shouldn’t be able to have it both ways.  Either identify as a democrat or not.

This brings to the forefront the most egregious “decepticon” of all, Senator Bernie Sanders. Honestly, I had never even heard of Senator Angus King before.

Does anyone actually believe that Bernie Sanders is an Independent?

I mean he has run for president as a democrat (TWICE), and his socialist ideologies would even place him on the far left edge of the democrat party these days, which is really saying something! Russia and China would probably even have to reign him in a bit!

Our next group of “decepticons” would be those “republicans” who should really identify as democrats, and those whose allegiance really lies with “the swamp.”

Heading up the “swamp” list of “decepticons” are Senators Mitch “Swamp Turtle” McConnell and Lindsey Graham.  

Those “republicans” who we see “transforming” into democrats from time to time are, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski.

The list of the democrat “decepticons” masquerading as Americans, while disregarding the oath they all took to follow and protect The Constitution, is quite long, in fact.

Just for starters, this list would include “the big guy,” the “illegitimate guy,” Joe Biden, “Cackling” Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Pramiya Jayapal, Eric Swalwell, and Cori Bush. And again, that’s just for starters.

Yes, my friends, it’s getting to the point where the democrat “decepticons” don’t even bother to hide the fact that they’re anti-American anymore. This can be done when they aren’t even worried about the opinion of voters anymore, since the democrats can just manipulate the vote in their favor…, and get away with it.

President Trump asks The Congress to choose greatness.  My State of the Union address analysis: Part 1.

There were quite a few memorable moments from President Trump’s State of the Union address last night.  But it was at the end of his speech, when he was appealing directly to The Congress, that The President’s message especially resonated.

As the cameras panned the audience of elected Congress people and Senators, you could see that they were actually paying attention, intently listening to The President, as he pulled them in and attempted to enlist them all in his cause:

“Here tonight, we have legislators from across this magnificent republic. You have come from the rocky shores of Maine and the volcanic peaks of Hawaii; from the snowy woods of Wisconsin and the red deserts of Arizona; from the green farms of Kentucky and the golden beaches of California. Together, we represent the most extraordinary Nation in all of history.”

“What will we do with this moment?  How will we be remembered?”

“I ask the men and women of this Congress: Look at the opportunities before us! Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead. Our most exciting journeys still await. Our biggest victories are still to come. We have not yet begun to dream.”

“We must choose whether we are defined by our differences, or whether we dare to transcend them.”

“We must choose whether we will squander our inheritance, or whether we will proudly declare that we are Americans.  We do the incredible. We defy the impossible.  We conquer the unknown.”

“This is the time to re-ignite the American imagination.  This is the time to search for the tallest summit, and set our sights on the brightest star. This is the time to rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.”

“This is our future, our fate, and our choice to make.  I am asking you to choose greatness.”

“No matter the trials we face, no matter the challenges to come, we must go forward together.”

“We must keep America first in our hearts.  We must keep freedom alive in our souls.  And we must always keep faith in America’s destiny, that one Nation, under God, must be the hope and the promise and the light and the glory among all the nations of the world!”

“Thank you. God Bless You, God Bless America, and good night!”

By the time he hit “thank you,’ it seemed like he had the audience mesmerized.

It seemed like for those last two minutes they all had dropped their partisan political guards just a bit, and we were all able to glimpse some of the potential that exists when our representatives choose to do their jobs like they were intended to do in the spirit of constructive compromise, with the best interests of our country and its people in mind.

Stay tuned for my more detailed analysis of The State of the Union address: Part 2 tomorrow.
