LYING WITH A PURPOSE

Trial lawyers, while trying cases, often utilize a slick trick to sway a jury. An attorney for one side will ask the witness an improper question, knowing the opposing attorney will object and the objection will be sustained. Even though the witness was not allowed to answer the question, the jury heard the question and can’t possibly un-hear it.

Democrats, in a concerted effort to destroy the Donald Trump presidency constantly lie about the president, his administration, Republicans in general, and Trump supporters. They lie, they know they’re lying, and they don’t care that they’re lying.

Not all citizens are as politically astute as I am, and my readers are. They’re clueless when it comes to current events and politics, only getting what little knowledge they have from snippets of news they hear in passing. They may watch part of the evening network news before tuning in to their favorite sitcoms and dramas on TV after eating dinner. Then it’s off to bed. Rinse and repeat.

It’s these folks that liberals are targeting. The liberal media, including the networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, etc. run a story that everyone knows is a lie. So, what, if it’s a lie. They want the folks I described above to hear it or read it and think,” Gee, this president is an awful person to say the things he says.” Two or three days later the truth come out that the president didn’t actually say that, or what he said was taken out of context. A retraction may be run correcting the record, or not.

The Democrats have achieved their goal. People like I described above heard the original story, but there’s a good chance they didn’t hear the truth.

Like I’ve been saying for years, Democrats don’t care about the truth. They tell lies and they know they are telling lies. It’s okay, though. They have each other’s’ backs. They have their own little lying clique. No one inside the clique is going to call them out or say the false story should not have been run.

Yes, conservatives and conservative media are going to call them out. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, all the way down to Nancy Graham are going to investigate and obtain the truth. But how many of the people I described above follow Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, etc? Virtually none. And because Rush, Sean, Bill, Tucker, etc. are continuous targets for the left to direct their venomous hate, most of the above folks would rather be struck dead than spend even a few minutes listening the these talking heads. They have no interest in pursuing other angles, it’s time for “Dancing with the Stars.”

WING NUT GAL ON THE AHCA

According to 8 Need to Know Facts About the AHCA from housegop.leadpages.co/healthcare, the following is what you need to know about the AHCA legislation that was withdrawn prior to vote the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday, March 23, 2017.

  1. Dismantles the Obamacare taxes that have hurt job creators, increased premium costs, and limited options for patients and health care providers, including taxes on prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, health insurance premiums, and medical devices.
  2. Eliminates the individual and employer mandate penalties, which forced millions of workers, families, and job creators into expensive, inadequate Obamacare plans they don’t want and cannot afford.
  3. Prohibits health insurers from denying coverage or charging more money to patients based on pre-existing conditions.
  4. Helps young adults access health insurance and stabilize the marketplace by allowing dependents to continue staying on their parents’ plan until they are 26.
  5. Establishes a Patient and State Stability Fund, which provides states with $100 billion to design programs that meet the unique needs of their patient populations and help low-income Americans afford health care.
  6. Modernizes and strengthens Medicaid by transitioning to a “per capita allotment” so states can better serve the patients most in need.
  7. Empowers individuals and families to spend their health care dollars the way they want and need by enhancing and expanding Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), nearly doubling the amount of money people can contribute and broadening how people can use it.
  8. Helps Americans access affordable, quality health care by providing a monthly tax credit, between $2000 and $25,000 a year, for low and middle income individuals and families who don’t receive insurance through work or a government program.

I have always said, even dating back to the days when the Clinton administration was attempting to pass “Hillary Care,” if we allow government run health care to pass and the federal government to grab 14% of the nation’s economy, that would the beginning of the end of the United States of America. I also said that the un-doing of such a hideous piece of legislation would be all but impossible.

When President Trump was elected, in part, because he promised to get rid of Obamacare, I knew it couldn’t be done in a day, or in weeks, or maybe even in months. The Democrats totally own Obamacare and could rightfully be blamed for its flaws. Once the Republicans came in and began to make changes, no matter now minor or how extensive, they would then own it. Democrats, along with the mainstream media were sure to trash it and claim how many Americans it is killing and will continue to kill; and the ones it doesn’t kill will suffer unbearably. Remember, Democrats don’t care about the truth or about facts. In other words, this had to be done right, no mistakes! Even though I am anxious for my premiums to decrease, I wasn’t in a hurry because again, I wanted this done right.

As much as I would like to go back to when Obamacare didn’t exit, unfortunately, that’s going to be impossible. Much of Obamacare is entitlements and once you’ve granted entitlements, it is next to impossible to pull them back. Examples include the allowing of children to be on their parents’ healthcare plan until age 26 and the inability to deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions.

When House Speaker, Paul Ryan pulled the AHCA legislation and didn’t allow a vote because there were not enough votes to pass it, I was disappointed because I felt that this was the best we were going to be able to do in getting rid of the most evil piece of legislation ever wrought on the American people.

I might be wrong, though. In fact, I hope I am wrong. I would certainly support something that would make it so that Obamacare never even existed. I would love to have my premiums at the level they were three years ago. Three years ago, I was on a COBRA plan, and while it wasn’t cheap, it was affordable, and I had good insurance. For those of you who may not ever have had the need to check into Cobra prices, they are comparable to prices you would pay for health insurance should you have to procure it on your own.

What is the White House doing now since the AHCA wasn’t voted on? I’m getting mixed signals from the media outlets about what next. I’m hearing that work has already begun to revive “repeal and replace.” I’m also hearing that AHCA is dead in the water and the White House is moving on to tax reform. While it would have been nice to have the taxes in Obamacare repealed before moving further on tax reform, it wasn’t going to happen.

There’s no way you can spin this to say that it wasn’t a big setback for President Trump and the Republican party. But that’s what it was, a setback. The Trump presidency is not coming to an end like many on the left would have you believe. Like Rush Limbaugh said on his 3/27 monologue, “Trump’s voters do not blame him for this. Trump’s the new guy. The people that have been there all along appear to be the people that can’t get anything done, but Trump was gonna be the guy to go in there and change all of this and didn’t.”

Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich thinks that the Trump White House, instead of attacking tax reform, should focus on an infrastructure bill, something in which the Democrats will work with him, and give him a legislative victory. Not sure I agree with that because I really want to see tax reform take place, and I will admit that it’s for personal reasons.

Rush Limbaugh has also indicated that he thinks that the Democrats are salivating at the opportunity to work with Donald Trump. He thinks they will jump at the chance to work on an infrastructure bill and even on fixing Obamacare. I don’t necessarily agree with Rush on this. The Democrats have so much hate for Republicans and anyone who disagrees with them, plus they’ve continuously maintained that they will not work with President Trump. Instead, they will do everything they can to wreck his presidency.

I’ve said this many times. Donald Trump is a business man and in his conglomerate, when he says jump, employees say, “How high.” That’s not the case in the public sector, and he just got his reminder of that. The facts are: Donald Trump is the President of the United States for at least the next three years and ten months. He will continue to work on his agenda of limited government, tax reform, and the diminution of Islamic terrorism. Democrats will continue to fight him tooth and nail with nothing but hate in their hearts for Donald Trump, his administration, and his supporters.

What’s going to happen with health care? Obamacare is and has always been a train wreck. It’s close to imploding. And when it does, it will still be owned by the Democrats.

SABOTAGE OF DONALD TRUMP

In one of his monologues for his March 2, 2017 radio show, media mogul, Rush Limbaugh, stated that Barack Obama and his deep state operatives are attempting to sabotage the duly elected president of the United States.

Rush touched on everyone’s desire to defend Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, by pointing out Democrat hypocrisy. However, Rush rightly points out that there is no such thing as Democrat hypocrisy in the media. “You’re never going to beat these people back by pointing out how they’ve done the same thing that they’re accusing the Republicans of doing.

Rush further indicated that the story is not about Jeff Sessions, nor is it about illegal talks between Donald Trump and his campaign people with the Russians. Instead, the story is about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to sabotage the Trump presidency and do everything they can to render it meaningless and ineffective, or to get him impeached, or to force him to resign.

It seems as though the Republicans are on the defensive all of the time and there’s no reason for that because the Republicans won the election, taking the House and the Senate, and taking many state governorships and legislatures. Plus, there is no evidence of any illegal contact taking place between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

The only option that the Democrats have at their fingertips is to try to convince as many people as possible that Hillary should have won the election, that Trump is illegitimate, that Trump’s victory was the result of cheating, fake news, and maybe foreign espionage.

Upon close examination of the activities of the Democrats, it is obvious that they’re going after all of the people who are the closest advisers to President Trump. They took out Rudy Giuliani right after the election with stories about his supposed ties to foreign governments. Then they took out Michael Flynn by deciding to harp on the fact that Flynn had liked to Pence about something of tremendous, major import, forcing the President to get rid of Flynn on the basis that he’s not trustworthy.

Now, the left is going after AG, Jeff Sessions, stating that Sessions like to Al Franken during his Senate confirmation hearing. These are tactics and strategies of the Democrat party. The immediate knee-jerk reaction when these allegations surface is to accept their premise, and once we do that, we’re cooked.

Rush’s opinion as to what is driving this is the speech that President Trump made on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. The Democrats thought that Trump was going to continue to be what they consider a bumbling fool. Instead, they were treated to a great presidential speech, ratcheting up their intensity.

Rush indicated that Sessions, when asked about his conversations with the Russian ambassador, should have said, “Yeah, yeah, I talked to the Russian ambassador about our grandchildren.” That’s what I thought and I’m sure that many people thought that also. While we could have certainly pointed out the Clinton/Lynch meeting, things don’t work that way for Republicans. The Democrats are never held accountable for hypocrisy.

Thus, the Democrats are going after Sessions for the same reason they made Trump get rid of Michael Flynn. He’s not trustworthy. He like, etc. So, here come the calls from the Democrats: Impeachment! Special Prosecutor!

In conclusion, there is no evidence except the Obama administration and its holdovers in the deep state tried to sabotage the duly elected president of the United States. This is the story and this is what’s happening.

In calling for a special prosecutor, what is there to investigate? Allegations? Seriousness of the charge? The Democrats are trying to isolate Donald Trump from the people he trusts, trying to isolate him from the best people around him because they believe that Trump, without intelligence and guidance will fumble and stumble on his own because he doesn’t have a brain, nor political instincts, nor does he know what’s going on.

There’s a story out there about how Obama and his people are running a resistance operation from the former president’s Washington, D.C. home. Obama’s agenda has been totally rebuked by the American people. Now Obama is humiliated, angry, and embarrassed that his efforts to transform the United States of America into some sort of socialist paradise has been thwarted. Also, that Obama was the architect of the Democrat party defeat. That cannot be part of the history books. So, this story is all about the Democrat party trying to rewrite history and make it look like they actually won, except for the cheating of the Russians and Donald Trump.

In conclusion, Rush indicates that the Democrats are trying to convince the Europeans of this, plus, they’re doing everything they can to delegitimize President Trump, his administration, and his victory. Be that as it may, this is the story on which the American people need to focus.

Note from WNG: According to various news sources, newly confirmed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson, compared slavery to immigration in the United States, stating that there were other immigrants who came here on the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. For this, he was immediately ridiculed by the left. Later, on the Armstrong Williams Show, Dr. Carson clarified his comments by stating that “slaves came here as involuntary immigrants, but they still had the strength to hold on.” Will the left except Dr. Carson’s clarification or will they continue to berate him as they have done to Michael Flynn and Jeff Sessions?

UNLEASHED LIBERALS

Years and years ago, I heard Rush Limbaugh comment that liberals were the craziest when they were out of power.

Now that the left no longer has the presidency, the Congress, and hopefully soon, power will return to the right on the Supreme Court, we have unleashed liberals, saying anything to get attention, not caring if it is true or false.

I often use the term, “tolerant left.” I have even told some folks that I coined the term. Bill O’Reilly has used the term, but only after I used it. It’s no secret to anyone that liberals are the most tolerant and open-minded people on earth except when you don’t agree with them and where they stand on political issues. Then you are subject to ridicule and being called a moron, idiot, clueless, and a few other monikers which I won’t put in print.

A week ago, an interesting looking article appeared on my newsfeed. The headline read: Trump Takes Breather from White House, Hold Rally this Weekend

This article was shared by a liberal and contained comments by unleashed liberals. According to most news outlets, President Trump has worked every day since he’s been in office, but these unleashed liberals were accusing him of taking the weekends off. In fact, on this particular weekend, it was announced early on Friday (February 17, 2017) that after going to the Charleston Boeing plant for the unveiling of a new plane, that he would be spending a weekend working at Mar-a-Lago. The unleashed liberals claimed that he had already taken three vacations since becoming president. The unleashed liberals were also complaining about the so-called campaign rally that he was holding late Saturday afternoon, saying that he had better things to do with his time that attend a rally. One poster on another thread implied that the president only worked 9-5, five days a week.

The problems with these unleashed liberals, among other things, is they can’t seem to understand what they read. Ever since I’ve been commenting on liberal threads, I often must explain what I write two or three times to get a liberal to understand what I’m writing about. It makes me wonder if, to avoid admitting to being wrong, they’re attempting to change the subject.

When I commented, asking the participants on the thread, would they rather the president play golf or go on a date night like Obama was continuously doing, the comments were generally that he should be doing the country’s work, instead. One commenter even said there was no precedence for such a rally. Again, the unleashed liberals can’t comprehend what they read or hear. No precedence for such a rally? Does there have to be. Remember, Jimmy Carter started his presidency out with those fireside chats, a new thing in the era of television. Not since Franklin Roosevelt had that been done. I further pointed out to the unleashed liberals that Obama held multiple rallies when foisting Obamacare on the American people. They denied it, but, as usual, they were wrong. After one commenter kept insisting that he had better things with that two hours Saturday evening that to hold a rally, I got a little chippy and indicated that she should apply for the position of scheduling advisor.

These threads, whether they are conservative leaning or liberal leaning always get off subject. One commenter asked about FEMA aid for the New Orleans tornado victims and for the Oroville damn scenario in California. I had read where California Governor Moonbeam had an acknowledgement from President Trump that assistance was approved and on the way. While I never heard anything about FEMA assistance to New Orleans. If it had been delayed, we would have heard about it. You can “betcha” bottom dollar. Of course, one unleashed liberal whined because she thought President Trump should have said something about the disasters. Upon this, I informed her that during the Nashville, Tennessee flood of 2010, Obama never talked about it, nor did he visit the Nashville area. I then threw in the fact that after the generational tornado outbreak on April 27, 2011 where parts of the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia were devastated by long-form violent tornadoes, the only thing Obama did was visit Tuscaloosa, Alabama a few weeks after the fact.

The thread got very contentions with a number of the commenters piling on me, which is nothing new. At one point, one of the commenters attacked me in way that I have never been attacked, even by the most hate-filled unleashed liberals. At first, I laughed and shook my head. But after several hours, I started thinking that this particular attack was way out of line. I responded to the commenter that his/her (couldn’t tell from first name if man or woman) comments may have crossed the line when it comes to appropriateness. I then asked this person to take the comments down. I wasn’t holding my breath that the comments would be removed, but in less than twenty-four hours, they were.

Before their gal lost the election, liberals were the real haters, racists, bigots, and liars. Plus, they’ve always had trouble with reading comprehension and don’t care about the truth. Get ready, this new wave of unleashed liberals is becoming their former selves on steroids.

TRUMP WIN, NOW WHAT?

“The Fox News Decision Desk has called Pennsylvania for Donald Trump. This means that Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth President of the United States.”

Those were the words of Fox News Anchor, Bret Baier, in the wee hours of the morning on November 9, 2016 telling Fox News viewers of the Trump win.

As a reserved person, I didn’t jump up and down, I didn’t scream. Instead, I smiled and prayed a short prayer to God, thanking him for putting Donald Trump as the next leader of our country. God is in control and he puts kings in power and he strips kings of power. Those are the words that were used in Biblical times, but of course today, the leaders of the many countries on the planet have different names for their leaders. Here in the United States, we call our leader, President.

I continued to listen to the commentary and flipped to different channels, laughing to myself at the commentators of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and CBS. They were all so solemn, wondering how a Trump win could possibly have taken place.

In my mind, I was thinking about all the things that worried me when Obama and the Democrats had hold of this nation. I worried about being able to own firearms, I worried about how the Obama administration had treated Israel, I worried about the Iran nuclear deal, and how the Iranians were violating the stipulations and pursuing nuclear weapons. I also worried what a continuation of the Obama administration would have on businesses, our job creators. In the liberal quest to inflict pain upon those who sign our paychecks, would more people lose their jobs and would the prices of their goods and services increase. The Middle East is in ruins and ISIS has vowed to destroy the United States of America with Obama and the Democrats not seeming to care. During the eight years of Obama, I worried about my own personal situation. My health insurance premiums had sky-rocketed to the point that they were within a few dollars of my house payment. If we were to go to a single-payer healthcare system where the government had total control over our bodies, would I be able to get the health care I needed or would they give me pills and let me die. Maybe that wouldn’t be so bad. If a continuation of the Obama administration implemented major distribution of wealth programs, would I even had money to live? As a small business owner who is trying to “make it,” would I also be subjected to the many punishments a Hillary Clinton administration would certainly inflict on private businesses. As a result of not having to worry about the items I mentioned above, a burden was lifted off of me.

As I continued watching the election results, I remembered something Rush Limbaugh said a long time ago. Rush said that liberals are at their craziest when they are out of power. And as of the election results, they are certainly out of power.

Liberals/Democrats/progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves, accuse conservatives of being haters, racists, misogynists, xenophobes, homophobes, etc. If you disagreed with Obama’s policies, you were a hater, a racist, and many other things. If you were against illegal immigration, you were a xenophobe and a racist, if you believed that marriage should be between one man and one woman, you were a homophobe.

I’ve expressed in writing many times that it’s the liberals/Democrats/progressives who are the real haters, the real racists, the real bigots, etc. And if you ever want to enrage a liberal, just turn it around on them. They can’t take it.

We all know about the riots, the whining, the threats, etc. made by liberals after the Trump win. We’ve experienced nothing but hatred from the “tolerant” left. I’ve been on many liberal threads and I can tell you that these people are crazy, they’re delusional, and they’re demented. Some of the posts I’ve read are scary beyond the pale.

Yes, there was expressions of concern and maybe even some comments and statements that weren’t in the best of taste when Obama was elected in 2008 and then re-elected in 2012. But nothing any conservatives could say during the Obama years can compare with the vitriolic hate that the left has expressed, not only for Donald Trump, but for conservatives, white people, straight people, and Christians. Even white liberals are going after their white conservative counterparts. There was not one liberal friend or acquaintance of mine who would denounce the “Rape Melania” sign that was displayed by protestors outside of Trump Tower in New York after I denounced an improper comment that was made by a conservative.

Monday and Tuesday of this week, I spend several hours monitoring some liberal threads. In one, I chose to comment. Because of that comment, I was called the usual and was attacked because of my skin color (my skin color is white and so was the person who attacked me because of it), my sexual orientation, my religious beliefs, my views on the issues, and of all things, where I live and have lived all my life. Talk about tolerance!

On another thread, President Elect Trump was called unspeakable names and what was said about God took my breath away. It was horrible.

Folks, we’re going to have to get used to this. We’re going to have to brush it off and continue to push policies that will make America great again. Because I am a political writer, I have to explore these areas and I have to see this stuff, even though at times, it does upset me. Disagreements on the issues are expected and welcomed by most of us. Yes, let’s have a discussion on Obamacare. Let’s discuss the fine points of the Iran nuclear agreement. Let’s have a discussion on the pros and cons of gun control and our foreign policy. This is what we Americans are all about, This is what made this country great.

What we have become, though, is not good. The left refuses to discuss pertinent issues while focusing on how horrible America and conservatives are. All they want to talk about is racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, bigotry, etc. Maybe if we were able to discuss the issues I cited in the previous paragraph on an adult level, racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, and bigotry would greatly diminish. But as long as we have the left doing little else but hurling those accusations at anyone who dares not tow their line, we’re facing an uphill battle in making this country great again. Uphill battle or not, I believe that we can do it.

Liberals are doing everything they can to disrupt what has always been a peaceful transition of power after presidential elections. They’re currently in the process of recounting votes in certain states where they were certain Hillary Clinton would take. They’ve also promised to protest at Trump’s inauguration. They’re going to make life in American as miserable as possible for every man, woman, and child in this country. White folks will be vehemently attacked, conservatives will be vehemently attacked, heterosexuals will be vehemently attacked, Christians will be vehemently attacked, gun owners will be attacked. If you’re a white deplorable uneducated redneck, you’re going to be attacked. It’s going to be a rough ride.
