What is there to like about President Donald Trump?

Fox News recently took its poster boy President (Donald) Trump to task for lying about Hurricane Dorian, Russian meddling, crowd sizes, the Wall, etc.

Add cheating on his wives, affairs with shady ladies, reporting taxes, the NRA, avoiding the draft, etc.

You now have a broader picture of what sort of person our president is. Oh, and throw in his outrageous statements about undocumented Bahamans not welcome in the U.S. (knowing full well most of them lost EVERYTHING) and that makes them “very bad people” — you know, murderers, rapists, just like the Mexicans!

The man is heartless and uncaring except about himself and no one else. His simplistic (and often foul-mouthed) views on domestic and foreign issues are downright scary, but he’s discovered the use of a Sharpie can cure just about anything.  

Impeachment long-past due! Remember this post when you go to vote in the 2020 elections.

On another topic, in the aftermath firing of National Security Advisor John Bolton, it seems the game of “Who’s Next” is in full swing.  

Perhaps President Trump should take some advice from children’s author Dr, Seuss and consider renaming Washington, D.C.

“Whoville” befits the current chaotic goings on and hope to return to some sense of normalcy come Election Day 2020!

‘The Trump Effect’ is real; benefits every American

“The Trump Effect”

That is the title of an article in the AMAC magazine by Robert Charles awhile back and pretty well sizes up President (Donald) Trump’s effect on everything from our economy to foreign relations. Paraphrasing part of the article: 

The biggest tax cut in 37 years, the most since Reagan; the stock market is on a tear, up 31 percent in the first year and record highs since, while some detractors predicted a crash if Trump was elected (how is your 401-K doing?). 

Even CNBC called it “the best performance during the first year of a president since FDR;” record-setting rollbacks of business-killing regulations, thus raising profits across the economy; annual GDP growth near 3 percent when pundits said it couldn’t be done on his watch; dramatic increases in employment across all demographics, especially minority employment at the highest in 50 years; resurgent manufacturing in the U.S., with corporations and companies bringing manufacturing home to the U.S. that had been shipped overseas for decades, with mining up near 30 percent and retail, services and technology up markedly;an end to Obamacare’s mandate, thus getting rid of economy-choking penalties; an economic boom with amazingly low inflation; millions of dollars paid out in reduced taxes and bonuses that House Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi called “crumbs.”

My observation is that investor and consumer confidence in the U.S. is way up over the previous eight years to Trump. 

Overseas money is pouring in to America since other country’s interest rates are near zero or negative, including Germany, Italy and Japan. The U.S. has renewed stature in the world and once again is the world’s leader. NATO is finally beginning to pay their share of defense instead of the U.S. subsidizing their socialist entitlements by paying most of the NATO bill. The U.S. Embassy is finally in Jerusalem, the war in Iraq and against ISIS is over, Iran is crumbling due to our sanctions, as is North Korea, which no longer is testing nuclear inter-continental ballistic missiles. 

Most significantly, China no longer has a stranglehold on our economy, enabling it to build its military on the backs of the American consumer and is blocked from stealing American technology. 

Russian adventurism in Ukraine and other areas is thwarted and their economy suffers from sanctions and America’s energy independence. 

Make no mistake, the Trump Effect is real and benefits each and every American!

When Trump pulls out of race, try Haley or Fiorina


t is my expectation that President (Donald) Trump is going to do all of us a big favor and decide some time in early-to-mid 2020 not to run for re-election partly because of a slow-down in the economy.

When that happens, I hope that the Republicans will nominate someone of good character, such as Nikki Haley or Carly Fiorina.

Personally, I don’t know what I find to be more despicable about the guy — the way that he makes fun of and insults people’s physical appearance, or the way that he views women as sex-objects.

Let’s cease promoting America’s 2nd ‘Civil War’

Paramount TRUTH: Every individual has the Creator-given Natural Right of Self-Defense, which has absolutely nothing to do with the kind of personal armament.

Every gun regulation passed by bureaucrats in the U.S/ Congress and state legislatures violates this Creator-given natural right, and therefore violates the U.S. Constitution (the “Law of the Land”) which was constructed with the sole purpose of being the legal defense of ALL our natural rights.

Putting all the deceitful rhetoric and insanity of the gun-grabbers aside in order to clearly embrace reality, the FACT is that any object can be used as a weapon, and any weapon can be used for BOTH assault AND defense, OR as a so called “weapon of war.”

Further, every rationally minded individual knows full well that murder is never committed by any object being used as a weapon, but rather is always committed by mentally unstable individuals who willingly choose to violate the Natural Right of Life of another individual.

Yet, the actions of gun-grabbers exemplify their desire to prohibit and prevent us from protecting ourselves, our loved ones, and our neighbors from such deranged and violent individuals.

Many among the ruling class are now even calling us “domestic terrorists” in their campaign drivel for simply longing to do so, while hypocritically using public funding to cover the cost of armed body guards for themselves.

Gun regulations like “Gun Free Zones” (Helpless Victim Zones) have increased violence, especially mass shootings, yet the gun-grabbers advocate exacerbating this course of destruction as if they actually want to continue creating a fertile environment for mass shootings to occur more frequently.

Upon the whims of collectivists becoming “triggered” over mere disagreement with individualists exercising their Natural Right of Free Speech & Thought, “Red Flag Laws” (Neighborhood Pre-Crime Watch) will continue to allow thug LEOs to legally murder innocent people who resist this tyranny lacking legal due process, and will serve to drive Neo-Amerika directly into a second so called “Civil War.”

Those among both the ruling and working classes who advocate any of these violations against our Natural Right of Self-Defense are largely responsible for its resultant violence and death, placing the blood of many innocent lives upon their own hands.

Neo-Amerika has come to a point whereby the people will have to commit acts of civil disobedience in defiance of these tyrants who continue to embrace and instill various attributes of collectivism, which is at enmity with maximizing peace, prosperity, and liberty. 

These bureaucrats have utterly FAILED to honor their oath of office to uphold the US Constitution that was created with primary purpose of legally protecting our Natural Rights, proving themselves to be not only unfit for office, but also proving their “official” decisions to be legally unbinding.

Therefore if these bureaucrats do not repent of their actions, We the People having been left with no other option in defense of LIFE & LIBERTY must resist such tyranny with equal force when LEOs failing to honor their own sworn oath of office while “just following [NAZI-like] orders” continue to confiscate firearms from innocent non-violent citizens.

Due to the continued unjust actions and threats by the the masses who are indoctrinated into the tyrannical principles of Collectivism, We the People among the working class who recognize these attacks upon our Natural Rights are now being forced to draw a stark line in the sand with one simple message to those among the ruling class:

WE WILL NOT COMPLY WITH TYRANNY ANY LONGER — DON’T TREAD ON US!
