President Trump’s Speech to Congress

by Jack

“To any in Congress who do not believe we should enforce our laws, I would ask you this question: what would you say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or a loved one, because America refused to uphold its laws and defend its borders?

Our obligation is to serve, protect, and defend the citizens of the United States. We are also taking strong measures to protect our Nation from Radical Islamic Terrorism.”

It was his finest hour and perhaps one of the best speeches by any president ever given to Congress. Yes, it was that good. However, if you were one of the lefty nay-sayers on a scavenger hunt looking for flaws, hoping that President Trump would somehow fail, then you must be extremely disappointed. The President reached out to all Americans tonight and offer a plan for American success, one that is reasonable, believable and doable.

“We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a 5 year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials — and a lifetime ban on becoming lobbyists for a foreign government.”

There were many times that democrats, who sat across the isle from the republicans, found it difficult to stay in their seats, surrounded by a resounding applause for school choice, backing up our law enforcement community, honoring our veterans, regulatory reform, tax reform, keeping jobs at home, wiping ISIS the murderers of so many innocent men, women and children, off the face of the earth. He spoke of rebuilding our infrastructure, and fair merit-based immigration reform and so much more. This was truly a great time for those of us who have previously only seen one side of Donald Trump. Tonight we saw a leader who reached across party lines and spoke about core American issues and core American values, this what we can all support and should support.

The republican party has been berated, vilified and beaten down for years. They (GOP) are not used to this kind victory and they’re still in shock, still making adjustments and acclimating. For many of those in Congress who are true patriots, who may have become disillusioned with the division, bickering and unending roadblocks, this speech is just what they needed to hear to get back in the game. Their mission has never been made more clear, do it for America, put America first, leave partisan politics behind and lets get America back on track. These are my words, but it’s what I took away from the president’s message.

Let me make this absolutely clear, Trump was more bi-partisan than ever before and he delivered exactly what the left and the right needed to hear. He was eloquent, succinct and reassuring to all. If you missed this speech I urge you to do yourself a favor, seek it out and read or listen for yourself. For the full context of his speech click the following link.

Trump Proposes Downsizing Big Government

Posted by Tina

Cutting the size of government back is a popular concept for many on the right so you can imagine my JOY when, a few moments ago, I heard Rush say that Trump may propose a big cut in the State Department budget. So naturally I went looking for evidence. Lo and behold there is a story in the Wall Street Journal, “Trump Proposes Cutting State Department Budget by 37%.”

Trump has talked before about his intention for all department heads to clean out the excesses, cut out the bloat, and operate on a much more lean and mean budget. I have a feeling his budget will contain many such surprises as the businessman president takes his red pencil to the big government bureaucracy.

Trump has said he will not cut entitlements to pay for his budget increases and been criticized and ridiculed. Looks like Trump will “pay for” his effort to reclaim military preparedness by asking our government bureaucracy to operate responsibly as they serve the people (More work; fewer parties and less travel)!

On Oscar Night the Trumps Hosted the Governors

Posted by Tina

While the stars were celebrating themselves and seeing which would give the most despicable political speech of the evening our new president and first lady hosted our nation’s governors at a ball held in their honor. After months of being shunned by celebrities the first couple and their guests enjoyed an evenings entertainment provided by our military. See the story, with more photo’s in the Independent Journal Review, “While Hollywood Gave Awards to Make-Believe Heroes, Trump Was at Governor’s Ball… Honoring Actual Ones.”

I hope this is a trend that continues…who needs celebrities when talented people can be found in alternative places…like our military. I also hope the Oscars goes back to being a private dinner in Hollywood. seems they may be well on their way since this years audience on television was down significantly, “Oscar Ratings Down Double Digits In Demo; 32.9M Viewership Hits 9-Year Low.”

Remember when actors and actresses had the good sense to be humble and classy at the awards? Most of America tuned in to see the Oscars then.

Our First Lady could show this new crop of actors a thing or two about humility and class.

The Democrat Message Stinks

by Jack

In every election there are winners and losers, but the democrats are having a hard time accepting this simple reality. They deny they lost the presidential election and they deny their candidate and their message had anything to do with it. They blame the Russians, they blame the Electoral College and to a smaller extent they blame failing to reach their grass roots with their message.

However, not one of those excuses accounts for their stunning losses in the Senate, Congress and Governorships. Fortunately, they don’t get it and they’re going with repeating their tired old far left rhetoric, but saying it louder because not enough of us could hear it, or so they think.

Well, we did hear him; we just didn’t like what they were saying. Democrats have relied on playing the race card, the wealth card, the gender card, and most recently the gender identity (trans-gender) card. They’ve pushed for more taxes, more sanctuary cities and open borders. They’ve repeatedly failed to discern between legal and illegal immigration, the lawful and unlawful and they wanted us to buy into that junk? And they call Trump nuts!

These issues may make for headlines in the mainstream media, but they do not resonate with the average American voter. We’re a lot more concerned about a skyrocketing national debt, jobs, scaling back government to increase personal freedom and enhancing investment in America to give our children a brighter future.

The average voter wants to see American dollars and American jobs kept right here in America. President Trump speaks to these issues, democrats do not and this is why they lose, but this is unthinkable for dems.  Democrats do not want to acknowledge that the GOP now controls a record 68% of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation. That’s more than twice the number (31) that Democrats hold.

Since 2009, when President Obama took office, democrats have lost a total of 919 seats in state legislatures. That is a record high.  To the chagrin of democrats, the GOP controls Congress, the Senate and the White House for reasons that have nothing to do with gender identity or race baiting.   The truth be known, Russia has had about as much to do with their last loss as global warming and crop circles.

Let’s hope they continue to double down on their unpopular message. That is guaranteed to insure more conservative victories, if the conservatives will just follow through and do what we elected them to do. Otherwise, we’re going to see a 3rd party come into play.

New EPA Chief: Obama Administration Neglected Important Environmental Issues to Focus on Climate Change Agenda

Posted by Tina

Scott Pruitt, the new head of the EPA, had some interesting things to say on Saturday when he spoke at CPAC:

“I wanted to send a message to those at the agency — there are some very important things that the EPA does for this country,” Mr. Pruitt said on the final day of the Conservative Political Action Conference. “There are air quality issues and water quality issues that cross state line[s].”

“There’s some very important work to protect and provide leadership … but what’s happened over the last several years is the previous administration was so focused on climate change and so focused on CO2 that some of those other priorities were left behind,” he said.

He said some regulations will be rolled back in the near term “in a very aggressive way.”

“Next week, you may be hearing about some of those,” he said….”I think people across this country look at the EPA much like they look at the IRS,” he said, also saying he hoped to change that.

The left think Trumps administration is in “disarray.” I have a feeling that a year from now they are going to be surprised (and dismayed, poor dears) at the amount of work that gets done.

Militant Women Organizing Another Woman’s March

Posted by Tina

A great follow up to Jack’s last post in which he wrote that the Democrat Party is our nation’s “largest hate group” is a story today about three radical militant women organizing another women’s march. It will be very interesting to see who participates in this one. It’s being organized by a convicted terrorist, an indicted sixties radical, and an avowed Maoist. You heard that right, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, Angela Davis, and Tithi Bhattachary have co-authored a manifesto calling for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle” that begins with a strike they’ve dubbed, “a day without women.” Women are encouraged to spend their day “blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work” and “boycotting” pro-Trump businesses. Also every woman who participates is instructed to wear red (what else) in solidarity.

I imagine this stunt is meant to show the nation that it cannot get along without crazy radical bitchy militant feminists with thoughts of murder and mayhem in their heads. What a complete crock! The arrogance is astounding. And if you have to go to extremes isn’t that an admission that the power you imagine you have is pretty weak. Oh I forgot, these women are victims seeking power. I repeat, what a crock!

My advice to those businesses who’s female employees are absent on the day because they’ve found a better use for their time? Fire them! Fire them and replace every single one with a high priority focused on hiring men.

CPAC Attendees Wave Russian Flags

by Jack

A sly democrat operative slipped into CPAC and started passing out little Russian flags with Trumps name on it to mostly college age attendees.    Then moments later they were waving the Russian flags  during Trump’s speech.

CPAC organizers quickly spotted the ruse and started collecting the flags, but not before the press has a wonderful photo op.  But, the really embarrassing part is that not one of the college kids had a clue they were waving the Russian flag!

The story went out on the internet almost immediately (hmmm… that’s seems suspiciously coincidental), but it was not revealed as a hoax for hours.  But, in the end at lot of democrats had a good laugh at the expense of the humiliated republicans.

I’m sure Putin would have appreciated the gesture, if he saw it.   Heck he might have  been so pleased and so moved by it,  that he may have backed off from invading the Ukraine, who knows! lol (I’m kidding)

“What happened was these little flags they had, they were branded with “Trump” on them, and they were the Russian flag, and they were manufactured by a Democrat hate group, because that’s what the Democrat Party is. The Democrat Party, my friends, is the largest hate group in the country. Bar none. So, anyway, they pass these flags out, and they’ve got “Trump” on them. They are facsimiles or replicas of the Russian flag, and people are waving them around and so forth, and then here they come and they come confiscate them because they’re plants.

It’s a good trick, don’t misunderstand. The problem here is there’s coordination between the guy who planted the flags and the media. The media is reporting this as though these Trump people were eager to wave Russian flags, because don’t you know there’s a connection between Trump and the Russians, and everybody that voted for Trump knows if it hadn’t been for the Russians, why, Trump would have never been elected. This is the big lie.” Rush Limbaugh

Trump is Moving Fast But, Not Congress

Posted by Jack

He’s done much morde than the items listed below from Town Hall, but this is what they consider his 10 best….

10) Freezing all Federal Hiring Outside of the Military: Trump followed in Ronald Reagan’s footsteps by putting a federal hiring freeze in place almost immediately after he became president. That’s big, because the first step to shrinking government is to stop adding more people to it.

9) Pulling Support for the Obama Drive to Force Women to Allow Men in Their Bathrooms: This was a bit surprising, because Trump has generally been supportive of allowing transgender women to use women’s bathrooms, but he also said he believes the issue should be left to the states. Towards that end, he ordered the DOJ to “withdraw a motion filed by former President Barack Obama seeking to allow transgender students in public schools to use the restroom with which they identify.” That will probably lead to the issue being left to the states, which is how it should be.

8) Reinstating The Mexico City Policy: Barring U.S. government funding to international non-governmental agencies that promote or perform abortions is a big deal for pro-lifers. Because of Trump, your tax dollars are no longer going to be used to murder children overseas.

7) Ordered Federal Agencies To Cut Two Regulations For Every New One They Propose: Not only will this lead to fewer regulations, Trump has also decreed that the net cost of any new regulation that is added after cutting the old regulations should be zero. In other words, the regulatory burden on the American people can only go in one direction: down. If you want to help the economy, one of the best ways to do it is to stop strangling American businesses with red tape. Trump understands that.

6) Putting Out An Executive Order Asking The DOJ And Homeland Security to Withhold “Federal Funds, Except As Mandated By Law” From Sanctuary Cities: Trump talked a lot about sanctuary cities on the campaign trail and it’s great to see him taking action against these lawless cities. The fewer sanctuary cities we have, the fewer Americans like Kate Steinle will be raped, robbed or murdered as a result. There is no such thing as the “rule of law” when a protected class of foreign trespassers don’t live under the same laws as the rest of us.

5) Approving The Dakota Access Pipeline And The Keystone Pipeline: Not only will both those pipelines produce jobs without harming the environment, over the long haul they’ll help reduce gas prices. Liberals may not care about Americans spending less on gas, but it’s great that Trump does.

4) Killing The Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal: As Jeff Sessions has noted, the TPP was a bad agreement that dangerously eroded America sovereignty,

“The TPP is about a goal of creating a new global regulatory structure, what I have called a Pacific union, transferring power from individual Americans and power from Congress once more. Eroding Congress to an unaccountable, unelected international bureaucratic committee. In other words, we are empowering the Trans-Pacific Partnership countries to create really a new Congress of sorts, a group with delegates that goes and meets and decides important issues that can impact everyday life of Americans. So the American representative in this commission, which will operate in many ways like the UN, will not be answerable to voters anywhere.”

For liberals, transferring American sovereignty to an unelected international group is a feature. It’s great that Trump sees it as a bug.

3) Undermining Obamacare: While there’s still lots of talk about how the GOP should repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump has already stuck a shiv in the heart of the program by ordering the government to “exercise all authority and discretion available to them” to delay the law and grant exemptions. There are still legal questions to be answered about the long term impact of this executive order, but as a practical matter, it appears to have already done away with the IRS enforcing a penalty on people who don’t have healthcare. Technically, the law is still on the books, but if you no longer have to report to the IRS whether you have health insurance or not, that makes it nearly impossible for it to be enforced. Obamacare is already in a death spiral and this executive order will speed things along.

2) Ordering The Construction Of The Border Wall: If you had to pick a central promise of Trump’s campaign, it was building a border wall. He’s already ordered construction to begin and as an extra added bonus, he signed an executive order increasing the number of border patrol agents and staffers for deportations. Of course ultimately, Trump will be judged on getting the wall finished, but you have to start somewhere and it’s good to see him taking that big first step right out of the gate.

1) Selecting Neil Gorsuch For The Supreme Court: Gorsuch is an eminently qualified 49 year old originalist and if conservatives were fantasy league picking their top five selections for the court, he’d be on it. Trump did his job; now it’s up to Mitch McConnell to get Gorsuch confirmed via hook, crook or nuclear option.

Crude, Rude…Fascists? Get Real!

Posted by Tina

Okay…it’s time to put up or shut up. Lefty media, democrats and blog junkies are furious over the tone and content of President Trump’s remarks. They say he’s crude and authoritarian…unlike any other. Never mind Obamacare was shoved down our throats without representation from the right. Never mind their standard bearer for eight years was a man who encouraged his supporters to “get in their face.” Never mind his slams on police officers created an atmosphere for violence, property destruction, and murder. Never mind opposition party leaders are now paying people (brown shirts) to agitate in the streets with signs urging the ousting of our newly elected president, a fascist tactic employed by both Hitler and Mussolini! Isn’t all of this rage and outrage just that, a fantastically modeled game? They also feign outrage over Trumps crude unseemly rhetoric. But they know their own are, and have always been, crude, rude, nasty and therefore, “unfit to lead.” They demonstrate it all the time.

Grabien posts a quote from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski in an article titled, , “Brzezinski: ‘Our Job’ Is to Control ‘Exactly What People Think'”:

While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.

“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.”

SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”

BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.

Rep. Maxine Waters, Democrat CA, once again MSNBC offers the platform:

Maxine Waters: I just think the American people need to know what is going on. This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are. They’re all organized around making money. (video at the link)…this Kremlin Clan….

I thought about posting even more examples but I think the point here is made. The left sees in Trump what has always been there within their own ranks. Radical screamers and news agitators hated and disparaged the Tea Party…now they want to be them. This hypocrisy adds weight to the fact that the left is phony. Unfortunately they still do not get what the Tea Party was or what the people who joined up wanted. They think it was just about agitating, yelling and screaming. They see it through the lens of their own fascistic game. These games mess with our lives. They cost communities and individuals a lot of money, especially when they devolve into violence.

Civility! It’s a word. You on the left might want to chill, shut your mouths for awhile, and study it’s meaning. You are not better than others. You do not own the high road. You are as flawed as anyone else and your leaders have been as flawed as you claim Donald Trump is. You loved and promoted Clinton even after he diddled with an intern and was accused by several women of misogyny and violent rape. Your entertainment arm supports and excuses the behavior of Roman Polanski. It’s time to get real before you turn even more people against you.

Patheos, “Forget Millennials. A new generation is coming of age: Generation-Z. It’s being heralded as the most conservative generation since 1945.”

LA Times, “Millennials are more conservative than Boomers or Gen Xers were at their age, study finds”

Sweden’s Immigration Problem

by Jack

“For years Sweden has regarded itself as a “humanitarian superpower” – making its mark by offering refugee to those fleeing war and persecution.

But people’s patience with their visitors is wearing thin following a year of violence, sickening sex assaults and the death of social worker Alexandra Mezher, 22, who was knifed to death at an asylum center for unaccompanied children at the hands of a Somalian migrant who claimed he was 15.

At the time, her grieving mother, an immigrant herself from the Middle East said: “Immigration has destroyed Sweden.”

Sweden, a country of 9.8million, took 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015, in 2016 it was more and currently 16% of Sweden’s population is due to immigration from middle eastern countries and from other Muslim war zones. Why? Because Swedish people are warm, caring, generous and liberal to a fault.

Ask your average Swede about the spike in sexual assaults, shootings, robbery and thefts and they will likely say it’s not a Muslim problem, it’s just a problem that coincidentally arrived at the same time the mass immigration arrived.

They prefer to be in denial than to admit these ills came with the hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants. Swedes are very sensitive about not being called racist. This is why they won’t even record the offenders race on crime reports, this is how they bend over backwards to avoid any hint of bias towards anyone for any reason.

But, the times are changing. They are beginning to realize what they have brought into their country. They are beginning to fear that more than they fear being called an Islamophobe. The anger and resistance is growing among the Swedes and that is saying something. Swedes are so slow to anger over anything, they would rather just roll with the punches…but, as we are seeing, they do have limits.

Sweden’s socialist system worked well enough for their indigenous population, even though they had to pay taxes of up to 80% of their income, but now that system is being overwhelmed. They’ve brought in so many people asking for asylum without any thought of if they had jobs for them or not? This has further burdened their system to the point of exhaustion.

As one Swedish critic put it, “We brought people in from countries that have a medieval understanding of human rights, science, and religion and somehow we expected them to just blend in to an advanced and enlightened Swedish society. Of course, we hoped they would, but what did we base that on? Nothing. We just had hope. Now we have Muslims trying to assimilate us and our country, this is crazy!”

Yep, it is. I feel sorry for Sweden with your “no go” zones for police. Seems like you have lost control over parts of your country. But, if its any consolation, America is trying very hard not to learn from your mistakes.
