For those keeping score, the American Foreign policy and intelligence Super Bowl reveals that the President's Intel Chiefs are not willing to be benched as to the way they see the world. However, the President hired them all and can fire them all without cause. And he can publicly insult their individual and collective intelligence as he has done to others in his administration who have disagreed with him.
To many of the radical leftists who inhabit the interconnected worlds of the media, Hollywood and the Democratic Party, the red hat with the words “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) has become the new similar of racism. According to left wing activist and actress Alyssa Milano, wearing the MAGA hat is akin to wearing a “white hood.”
Thus, supporting Donald Trump is the same thing as belonging to a terrorist group like the KKK. Never mind that the MAGA slogan was also used by former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, it is now incredibly racist because it was resurrected by Donald Trump. To the left, he is the epitome of evil.
In his campaign for President, Donald Trump made building the wall across the southern border with Mexico his signature pledge. In fact, it started on the first day of his presidential campaign when Trump highlighted the problems of illegal immigration. He famously said, “When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best... They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them]. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” These remarks led to a swift backlash as he was denounced by Macy’s, Univision, NBC among other corporate giants.
So often, I hear my pro-Trump defenders claim the media hates him, they are evil, fake newsers and enemies of the people.
I try to tell them that yes, the media is biased against Trump, but for good reasons. He lies or exaggerates so often that the media is simply challenging his or his administration comments, to get the facts.
That’s what they do. That's their job. It is also human nature. When you know that someone is not being honest, you make extra efforts to get to the truth.
Now that the mid-terms are over, and the new Congress has started, political observers have already started to focus on the 2020 presidential campaign. Every election, it begins earlier, especially in this case because the Democrats and their supporters in the media are obsessed with defeating President Donald Trump.
The hatred from the left for Donald Trump is off the charts and it is getting worse all the time. This anger is fueling the 2020 presidential contest for Democrats and, as a result, contenders are moving to the far left to pick up support.
In 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump as the President of the United States. His top campaign pledge was to build a border wall. It was the most popular slogan at his rallies and at the GOP 2016 Convention in Cleveland.
After two years of waiting, it is time for the President to deliver on his pledge. Of course, nothing happened with the Republicans in charge of Congress and nothing is happening now that the Democrats control the House of Representatives. Despite years of strong statements advocating a wall and border security, top Democrats are adamantly opposed to giving President Trump any funds for a border wall. It has been called “racist,” “immoral,” and “ineffective,” among other highly critical comments.
Louisiana is going into its fourth year of John Bel Edwards at its helm. The first three years have been quite rocky, in large part due to his predecessor, Governor Bobby Jindal, leaving a major budget deficit that needed filling. As a result, numerous special sessions, a few totally unsuccessful, ultimately balanced the budget. Today, Edwards, a Democrat, says the days of raising taxes are over, that the budget has been stabilized.
President Donald Trump’s net approval rating of Louisiana voters has plummeted over the roughly two years that he has presided over the nation.
According to a Morning Consult poll of registered voters, released Monday morning, Trump’s net approval sits at 13 percent, that is, positive minus negative rating.
His overall rating nationwide sits at 44 percent approval, versus 52 percent disapproval.
The 116th Congress will be one for the record books, but not in a positive way. Already, one member of Congress, U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), has used a vulgar expletive to refer to the President of the United States. Her vow to “impeach the mother…er” was greeted by cheers from a group of progressive supporters at a reception Thursday night. This type of insult is certainly unprecedented in recent political history.
We’re hitting the last day of 2018, with thousands of men and women on furlough or staying on their jobs without pay due to a government shutdown. Wouldn’t it be nice if, just for one last day of 2018, we could make sense of this border wall debate separating them from their paychecks?
Can't we, as a New Year's resolution, make up our mind that common sense and facts prime over politics?
After all, we’re talking about The Wall.
