No, you didn’t misread that. No, that’s not a typo. A gift from God is what this is. I can assure you I never expected to ever utter those words. I never expected what I will share with you to happen. I never expected the head of the Democrat Party to throw Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama under the bus.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about a Politico article that took some excerpts from Donna Brazile’s book to be published on November 7th, 2017: “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House.”
The article is quite long and takes a lot from the book, but there are some VERY key pieces that need to be shared. The article talks about how Donna wanted to look into the scandal that Hillary Clinton might’ve rigged the election and screwed Bernie from the beginning.
We begin with the first instance of throwing someone under the bus: “My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.”
Wow. We begin with a big one. In that paragraph alone, she threw three Democrats under the bus: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Obama and Hillary. She essentially said that Schultz was doing next to nothing in terms of fundraising, but more significantly, she ACCUSED Obama of neglecting the party financially.
And that’s something I truly never thought I’d see. For as much as they loved Hillary, even they knew that she was a pretty terrible candidate. They knew the only thing she had going for herself was her gender. They were banking on that, since that was her only “positive”. I put positive between quotation marks because gender shouldn’t really be a significant factor in choosing a candidate for President. Just as voting for a black guy because he’s black is just as racist as voting against him because he’s black, voting for a woman because she’s a woman is just as sexist as voting against a woman because she’s a woman.
But let’s not get sidetracked too much. This revelation from Brazile is simply too astonishing to go down a tangent that I can talk about at any other point. The article continues with more under-the-bus-throwing: “Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party – she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks. By September 7th, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.”
Then, we move on to a phone call made to Gary Gensler, the chief financial officer of the Clinton campaign. “The Saturday morning after the convention in July, I called Gary Gensler… He wasted no words. He told me the Democratic Party was broke and $2 million in debt.” She then responded to Gensler with: “I am an officer of the party and they’ve been telling us everything is fine and they were raising money with no problems.”
And then, comes the detailed revelation from Gensler: “That wasn’t true”, he said. “Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt - $15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign – and had been paying that off very slowly. Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.”
Oh my God. I honestly can’t believe this is being released for the public (that at least researches a little) to see. Earlier, Brazile had thrown Obama under the bus by saying he neglected the party financially. Well, this is throwing Obama under the Space Shuttle. She’s revealing that Obama was terrible with even his own PARTY’S finances.
I’ve mentioned that Obama essentially killed the Democrat Party in the past, but this goes a step even further. Back then, I only meant that in terms of politics. People didn’t like what he did with the country, and decided to vote against Democrats. But now, we see that he even did his best in killing his party FINANCIALLY.
Regardless, we move on to the other target for the DNC bus: Hillary Clinton. The article continues: “On the phone Gary told me the DNC had needed a $2 million loan, which the campaign had arranged. ‘No! That can’t be true!’ I said. ‘The party cannot take out a loan without the unanimous agreement of all the officers.’ ‘Gary, how did they do this without me knowing?’ I asked. ‘I don’t know how Debbie relates to the officers,’ Gary said. He described the party as fully under the control of Hillary’s campaign, which seemed to confirm the suspicions of the Bernie camp. The campaign had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse. Under FEC law, an individual can contribute a maximum of $2,700 directly to a presidential campaign. But the limits are much higher for contributions to state parties and a party’s national committee.”
“Individuals who had maxed out their $2,700 contribution limit to the campaign could write an additional check for $353,400 to the Hillary Victory Fund – that figure represented $10,000 to each of the 32 states’ parties who were part of the Victory Fund agreement - $320,000 – and $33,400 to the DNC. The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.”
Ok, that’s a lot of information to look at, so I’ll break down what it means. Gary informed Donna that the Clinton campaign had full control of the party. Meaning that the FEC contribution limit doesn’t matter at all. The money contributed to either the Hillary Victory Fund or the individual states’ local Democrat party went straight to the DNC. And since the party was under the control of the Clinton campaign, that means that the money then could go straight to the campaign.
In essence, what Donna mentioned earlier was right: the Clinton campaign was using the party as a cash cow. A mere platform for fundraisers.
Now, parties do everything they can to raise money for their respective campaigns. And campaigns typically control the party when they have an incumbent, such as in 2012 when Obama was the incumbent Democrat president. But parties typically aren’t controlled by the campaign until a victor is declared. And Donna makes the shocking revelation (though, shocking to us conservatives for different reasons) that the Clinton campaign had full control of the DNC BEFORE she was the party’s nominee.
“I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary, but I could not find any in party affairs or among the staff… Then I found this agreement. The funding agreement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters decided which one they wanted to lead… I told Bernie I had found Hillary’s Joint Fundraising Agreement. I explained that… she had exerted this control of the party long before she became its nominee.”
That proves it. The agreement Donna is talking about shows that the Clinton campaign had full control of the party before Hillary was even the nominee. Now, I’m not shocked by this like, say, a liberal would be. I've known for a long time now that Hillary and the DNC screwed Bernie. What I’m shocked by is the fact that the current DNC head is REVEALING ALL OF THIS! She’s revealed right there that Hillary and the DNC screwed Bernie’s chances long before a nominee was even decided upon. Hillary had the nomination in the bag from almost the get-go.
I could talk so much more about this, but time constraints exist for me in these articles, so I’ll try to summarize my thoughts as opposed to expressing them with as much detail as I usually do.
When reading that Politico article, the first thing that came to mind was how the Left said that Republicans were being torn apart because of Trump. That we’re divided. That there’s no unity. But in reality, while there are RINOs that divide the party, most Republicans are in favor of Trump. We’re united with him.
But when we take a look at the DNC, we see nothing more than a dumpster fire. They are screwed financially. They are screwed politically. And they have no real sense of reality. At one point in the article, Donna even mentioned to Bernie that she did not believe the polls that had Hillary winning! Even THE DNC CHAIRWOMAN was hesitant about Clinton’s chances!
I’ll end this article with these words: the Democrat Party is in total shambles and I couldn’t be happier about it.

There come points in time in which the Left is simply very predictable. How they will respond to certain news such as terrorist attacks and shootings seem as though they are parts of a script. A script that tells them “blame gun owners during shootings and claim Islam is a religion of peace when Muslim terrorists kill people.”
This latest attack in New York City on Halloween is no different. You see people like the Deputy Commissioner of the NYPD Intelligence and Counterterrorism saying things like: “This isn’t about Islam. It’s not about what mosque he attends.”
I don’t care what mosque he attends, but THIS IS ABOUT ISLAM! The terrorist, Sayfullo Saipov, pledged allegiance to ISIS and shouted “Allahu Akhbar” on the streets of New York. He intended to kill infidels and did it for his murderous religion and god. This is about Islam.
The Deputy is not the only Leftist that makes sure to not blame Islam, however. Chuck Schumer said in a statement to Trump’s response to the attack: “I have always believed and continue to believe that immigration is good for America. President Trump, instead of politicizing and dividing America, which he always seems to do at times of national tragedy, should be focusing on the real solution – anti-terrorism funding – which he proposed cutting in his most recent budget.”
It’s honestly hilarious for him to say something like that, considering that the terrorist got into the country through the Employment-Related Immigration Act of 1990, otherwise known as the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, a program that randomly selects people from countries that barely migrate any people into the U.S. Why mention this when talking about Schumer, you may ask? BECAUSE THIS WAS HIS PROGRAM! HIS BILL! HIS BILL ALLOWED FOR THIS TERRORIST TO ENTER THE COUNTRY!
This bill, which was for whatever reason passed by Congress through super majority vote and signed into law by Bush Sr., is an incredibly ridiculous bill. This bill benefits people from countries that have relatively few people migrating to the U.S. Wouldn’t that mean that most people in those countries DON’T WANT TO MIGRATE TO THE U.S.? Certainly not to become Americans, at least. And yet, this bill exists.
But let’s return to the topic of this article. Why mention hypocrisy when talking about the attack? Let’s go back to early last month, shall we? The biggest mass shooting in American history: the Vegas shooting.
I doubt you’ve forgotten how the Left reacted to the shooting. How did they react? The same way they react to any other shooting: demanding gun-control. Whenever a shooting happens, regardless of the damage, the Left always blames law-abiding citizens, Republicans, and the guns themselves. They blame people that had nothing to do with the attack. They blame an entire ideology. During terrorist attacks, however, they don’t blame the ideology that encourages people to murder others.
Whenever there’s a terrorist attack, the Left immediately goes to the defense of Muslims, saying they’re not to blame. But whenever there’s a shooting, they immediately attack all gun owners. After a terror attack, they single the terrorist out and say not everyone is like that. After a shooting, they blame everyone that owns a gun.
Now, a Leftist could say that we do the same. That during a shooting, we single the guy out and during a terrorist attack, we blame the entire religion. Here’s the thing: ISLAM TELLS ITS FOLLOWERS TO KILL INFIDELS! THE NRA ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES! It’s literally offense vs. defense. Muslims are always the attackers, while law-abiding citizens are always the ones being attacked.
And there’s not rebuttal to that argument. Look back at every Islamic terror attack. Was the perpetrator Muslim? Yes. Were the victims law-abiding citizens? Most likely. Wanna know why that is? Because a law-abiding citizen OBEYS THE LAW! Muslim terrorists DON’T!
Why do we come to the defense of gun owners whenever there’s a shooting? Because gun owners are almost entirely law-abiding. You’ve seen the stats I shared after the shooting. You know that there are more registered guns out there than there are PEOPLE in the country. If guns were the problem, we’d know it.
Why do we group Muslim terrorists with other Muslims? Because they all follow the same death cult of a religion. They all read the same religious texts. They all understand what the texts say. They all follow the texts as much as they possibly can. No, not all of them will kill people. No, not all of them will break the law… quite yet. Their Sharia Law is the law they seek to follow. And only that Law. They don’t care for the Constitution. They don’t care for the country. They HOPE the Constitution and the country will fall.
I’ve seen this metaphor on Facebook every now and then. To paraphrase: “Muslim terrorists are snakes in the grass. Muslims are the grass the snakes hide in.” Regardless of the particular actions individual Muslims partake, they all follow the same laws, the same rules, the same ideologies and the same deity and “prophet”. The laws tell them to lie to infidels, take from infidels, kill infidels and that they will be rewarded with sex with 72 virgins.
These are the people the Left LOVES. The people the Left PROTECTS and comes to the defense of whenever one of their own kills people. It happens over and over and over again. And their solution? BRING MORE OF THEM IN AND MAKE THEM A PRIORITY FOR THE COUNTRY!
My solution? Common-sense vetting procedures! Eliminate the ridiculous Lottery Immigration system! Deny refugees entry to the U.S. if they’re Muslim! Oh, and ACTUALLY ERADICATE ISIS FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH!
Now, I’m not so naïve as to think that eliminating ISIS means no more terrorism ever. But the destruction of our enemies who don’t wish to be peaceful with us is a priority. I want to eliminate Islam not with guns, but with words. I’ve seen plenty of Muslims convert to Christianity, but never once have I seen a Christian (a true Christian, that is) convert to Islam.
Why? Islam doesn’t offer salvation, it offers sex. Mohammed didn’t offer salvation, but sexual pleasure in the afterlife. Pleasure that comes if the followers of Islam destroy the livelihoods of other people who are not like them.
I call Islam the “death cult of Islam” and for good reason: that’s exactly what they are. Not only is that exactly what they are, that’s ALL they are. It’s a sick, sick religion with equally sick followers. And yet, the Left loves them. It’s not hard to see why: the Left is just as sick.
No, the Left doesn’t go around the streets of New York killing people, but their version of “killing” people is destroying their lives. Big government is something they salivate over, even though it controls and destroys lives – often in that order. Actually, let me rephrase that. It’s not despite the fact that big government controls and destroys people why the Left loves it. They love it BECAUSE it controls and destroys people.
I’m never surprised at how the Left reacts to terrorist attacks. I’m never surprised at how they defend Muslims. Why would I be? Both are equally evil. The only difference is that the Left doesn't go around killing people. They go around punching people *ahem* Antifa *ahem*, but they aren't killing people on the street. They do mass-murder people in their mother's womb, though.
But both being evil, both face the same fate: death at the hands of the Lord. I’m not talking about physical death. Yes, they will all eventually die, because they are all mortal. But I’m specifically talking about spiritual death. That’s a fate they both share and can’t escape from no matter what they do (aside from repenting and accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior).
And that message they may not like. But it’s the Truth. It’s not a warning to the Left – it’s literal prophecy.
“For they cannot rest until they do evil; they are robbed of sleep until they make someone stumble.”

I don’t often talk much about the economy, since other areas of politics simply intrigue me more and draw all my attention and focus. Things such as the Russian dossier, the Weinstein scandal, and more recently, Manafort’s indictment (which, as I expected, shows no signs of making things worse for Trump).
But it’s important to take notice of the economy – even the Left knows this. All throughout Obama’s 8 years, they vaunted how Obama was making the greatest economic recovery in history, even though reality was entirely different. And in less than a year before Trump was even ELECTED, the economic climate is far more optimistic for the future than it ever was under Obama.
In his first six months, Trump helped create a million new jobs. I’ve seen reports that the economy is growing at a far faster rate than anticipated in the third-quarter (3.0% as opposed to the projected 2.5%), after having grown 3.1% in the second-quarter. We’ve seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average break record after record. And now, CNBC (who also reported that 3% third-quarter growth) is reporting that “Consumer confidence hits highest level since December 2000”.
“Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board. The rating is at the highest level since December 2000. This accounts for Americans’ views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months.”
Now, I don’t know what that rating means in terms of people. I don’t know how it’s calculated or what that number is based off of, but that matters little to the topic of this article. The number is entirely irrelevant. What I’m focusing on is the fact that CNBC is basically FORCED to report this because they simply can’t ignore the improvement Trump has made for the economy.
It’s beyond even any sort of policy. It’s about ATTITUDE. If consumer confidence is at its highest since December 2000, that means people are very HOPEFUL for the future of the economy and, by extension, the country. If anything, this is a measure as to how people feel about Trump. Trust me, the economic climate wouldn’t be this way if the media was right and most people hated Trump.
I remember CNN reporting months before the election that “Mark Cuban believes a Donald Trump victory would be a big loss for everyone with money in the stock market.” That, according to Cuban, “there is a really good chance we could see a huge, huge correction.”
Well, Donald Trump won, and the stock market SKYROCKETED the day he was elected! And it has only been going up ever since. Again, it’s been breaking record after record, as well as breaking Leftist heart after Leftist heart.
And even the Left has to take notice of it. They certainly don’t like it. They hate it, in fact. But they still have to report it, because it’s still happening. People are optimistic and confident about the direction the economy is going in. They are optimistic for the future of the country.
And that’s very different than what the MSM reports. They report that Trump’s approval numbers are horrible. That he’s the most hated man in America. That he’s going to fall and fall hard. And yet, reality is far different. People are optimistic. People like what Trump is doing and they LOVE that he’s President as opposed to Hillary, who pitifully joked that she’d be dressing up as the president for Halloween.
You and I both know that the economy can be very reactionary. We saw, upon knowing the election results, that the Dow Jones jumped up dramatically and it’s only been improving since. We’re seeing TRUE economic recovery. The media, for 8 years, had been lying about how the economy was doing. Yes, the Dow Jones was going up, but there was never any real confidence in consumers. The economy under Obama never grew to the rate it has been this year.
Trump, in less than a year as President, has done far more for the economy than Obama did in 8 years. Obama didn’t do things for the economy, he did things TO it. Trump is helping the economy, while Obama was essentially pulling a “Weekend at Bernie’s”. The economy was pretty much dying and he was dressing it up and pretending it was doing great. There was no truth to anything he said about the well-being of the economy.
And yet, despite the “savant” the media had been calling him, not once could they report that the economy was improving at these kinds of rates. They, and certainly we, know that Obama’s economy never improved at the rate Trump’s is. Of course, they hate that. But they have to report it.
If the Left ever used any sort of logic, they would conclude that what they report in terms of Trump’s popularity and approval is far from the truth. Like I said, the economy is reactionary. The economic climate is as well. If things are looking up for consumers, that means that they are liking what the future holds under Trump - something they never felt under Obama.
Alas, the Left, given their nature, will never see the logic behind my statement. They will never accept that the American people love that Trump is president. They can’t possibly accept reality. And they don’t realize that, with these reports, they’ve been closer to reality than at any other point. But they just can’t see the connection between consumer confidence and Trump’s status as President.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

The biggest piece of news this week so far is the indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. While his indictment shouldn’t come as a surprise given that Mueller leaked that they would be filing charges on someone the previous Friday (which is illegal, by the way), and given that Manafort’s home was raided months prior by the FBI, something like this shouldn’t really be a big shocker.
But do you want to know what’s funny about this entire ordeal? IT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ELECTION! Do you want to know what the charges are? Conspiracy against the United States, even though there’s not even a single mention of Russian collusion. It talks about Manafort and Gates lying to the FBI about having worked with the Ukranian government, which leads to the following charges: Conspiracy to launder money and Failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts for calendar years 2011-2014.
That’s it. There’s nothing about Russian collusion. Manafort and Gates aren’t even being CHARGED for it, but the Left still wants to pretend that’s what it’s about because Mueller was the one who pulled the trigger on this.
As a reminder, Mueller is investigating Trump, Russia and the 2016 Presidential election. The only reason Manafort and Gates are being indicted with this is because of their ties to Trump. Manafort was his former campaign chairman before Kelly Ann Conway and Gates was a “deputy campaign manager”, according to Fox News.
Despite of what they may or may not have done, there’s no doubt that the biggest reason they were indicted is because of their ties to Trump. And, to the MSM, this will seem as an effort to prove Russian collusion and would ultimately lead to the impeachment of Trump… but they are very wrong about that.
The official charges written by Mueller’s special counsel don’t even mention Russia. The charges aren’t for Russian collusion. And the only time the number “2016” is used is as a timeline for the money laundering charges they have on Manafort and Gates. There’s nothing on the election because there’s no evidence of collusion.
But Mueller saw some people calling for his resignation coming from the Left and he decided to pull the trigger on something. Anything to make himself look good, at least for now, in the eyes of the Left. Even though this has nothing to do with Trump, the Left and the MSM will see it as a step towards impeaching him, even though this won’t lead to anything of the sort.
But the MSM will take anything they can get. They’ve successfully convinced their viewers and readers that this indictment is about Russian collusion. But upon doing even a little bit of research, I found that this has nothing to do about the election. Unfortunately, many people won’t do research. They will be convinced this is about collusion, even though it’s clearly not.
I’ve seen trolls on pro-Trump pages saying things like: “Are you Trump supporters starting to s**t in your pants?” Even though this has nothing to do with Trump, Russia or the election, these people are convinced this will lead to the impeachment of Trump. This won’t even come close to that.
Do you want to know why Manafort’s indictment will backfire on the Left? Because this will be an example of them hyping something up, creating fake news, and disappointing their base. This won’t lead to impeachment as they hope. This will hardly even be a big deal by the end of next week. This doesn’t bring them one step closer to impeaching Trump because it has nothing to do with him, Russia or the election.
But they’ve reached this point of desperation. With Harvey Weinstein being exposed as a serial rapist, the Uranium One deal being a big talking point last week since it has ties to the Clintons and Obama, they needed ANYTHING to be happy about. Like a fan of a terrible sports team, they were hoping to have SOMETHING to cheer about while they get blown out.
They will take this very miniscule victory and make it a far bigger deal than it really is. They will hype this up as the beginning of the end for Trump and then they will fail to deliver on that promise. Just like they failed to stop Trump from becoming the Republican nominee, just like they failed to stop Trump from becoming President, they will also fail at impeaching Trump.
They’ve found no evidence of collusion for months now and they never will find any evidence of collusion. This doesn’t get them any closer to finding evidence of collusion. This doesn’t get them any closer to their dream of impeaching Trump. This will ultimately lead to a massive letdown for the Leftist base. It’s just another example of fake news.
They will celebrate for a very short time until they realize this won’t lead to anything of substance for them. Sure, Manafort and Gates are being targeted and prosecuted, but this won’t lead to anything more than that because of the charges set before them.
No matter what happens with Manafort or Gates, Trump won’t be affected in the least. His presidency isn’t at stake. The Left isn’t any closer to finding collusion. They’re not even closer to impeaching Trump. This certainly won’t even be the vaunted “First Step” the Left hopes it will be.
However, this could backfire even more for the Left than they realize. The indictment of Manafort and Gates could be the trigger for Trump to order Sessions to go after the Clintons and Obama for their involvement in the Uranium One deal. Or Hillary’s e-mail scandal. Or Obama’s fast and furious scandal. Or Benghazi. And/or every illegal thing the Democrats have done over this century.
Of course, I don’t know if Trump will do that. I don’t know if he will order Sessions to do it. But if there ever was a time or even one more reason to do it (other than delivering justice) this would be it. If anything, this might lead to the eventual indictment of the Clintons and/or Barack Obama.
So the Left can pretend this is a huge victory for them. Reality will hit them harder than a ton of bricks.
It’s coming too. According to Fox News: “Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman, John Podesta, has resigned from his lobbying firm amid reports he is under scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.” This means that the Special Counsel is investigating him too.
I may have been too generous when I said that this would hardly be a big deal by the end of next week. We’ll see if this is even somewhat relevant by the end of THIS week.
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
Author: Freddie Drake.
The Left simply can’t let go of this argument. It’s the only one they have to go on. They are too stubborn to admit they lost to Trump. And with GOP leaders announcing their plan to end their investigations into the election, the MSM wants to continue the fight that was born of nothing and will lead to nothing.
There’s a story on Politico with the following title: “GOP eyes end of Russia probes with Trump collusion unanswered.” It’s already been answered! THERE WAS NO COLLUSION! If there was, at least ONE piece of evidence would’ve surfaced by now given how many people are looking into it. The FBI, Congress, Mueller and MSM have all been looking into it for MONTHS and not a single thing to show for it.
The FBI began their investigation due to a b.s. dossier that only NOW has been revealed to the world to be absolutely b.s., Mueller has a team of DEMOCRATS looking into everything Trump has done since he learned to talk, and the MSM has been spending months covering a story that even one CNN producer has admitted to be fake.
The entire investigation was fabricated of absolutely nothing and, surprise, surprise, will result in absolutely nothing. But the Left can’t simply end it like that. They refuse to allow this story to die. They CAN’T admit that Trump beat Hillary fair and square and simply MUST reach a conclusion that Trump cheated and asked Russia for help. Hey, even the Politico article says that Trump INTENDED to collude, when that’s entirely false.
Let’s go through the important parts of the article:
First, the article begins: “Republican lawmakers say they’re approaching the end of their investigations into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election even though the most politically explosive issue – whether associates of President Donald Trump colluded with the Kremlin – remains unresolved.”
The Left has been looking into this fervently and have yet to come up with a single piece of evidence. Either the FBI, members of Congress, Mueller and MSM are all Homer-Simpson-working-at-the-nuclear-plant levels of inept or there simply is nothing there to criminalize Trump for.
Next, “Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) has suggested his panel’s investigation will end early next year, emphasizing that he wants to wrap up by February… ‘If there’s evidence that there was something there, that will all be laid out. If there’s no evidence, how could anybody object to it?’ Burr said.”
Mr. Burr, the Left will object to it. By the time of your scheduled end to the probes, the Left will have spent nearly a year and a half on this story. If there’s no evidence, they will lose whatever they have left of their minds. To not object to it would surely mean the Left admitting defeat, and they’re simply too arrogant to do that. They were too arrogant in 2000, when Bush won. They are even more arrogant today. At least the 2000 election was close. 2016 was a nuke to the Left.
Then the article talks about Democrats wanting to meet with Republican leaders before the probes end and hope to “come to a unified bipartisan conclusion.” Quoting Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA): “I think, frankly, it would be a good idea for the four of us (him, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) and Burr) to be collaborating as we go along rather than wait until the conclusion of our investigation.”
Oh, I don’t doubt that Schiff wants that. Historically, coming to a “bipartisan conclusion” or agreement usually means Republicans caving and Democrats getting their way. If Democrats want a conclusion, it will be one that will somehow result in the impeachment of Trump. They will b.s. harder than they ever have if that’s what it takes.
The article later on says: “Schiff and fellow California Rep. Eric Swalwell, two of the most outspoken House Intelligence Committee Democrats, say they too hope for unity but emphasized that despite the absence of a smoking gun, they’ve seen compelling evidence of Trump allies’ ‘intent to collude.’”
That’s what they’re down to? Intent? There was never any sort of attempt to collude. No INTENT to collude. This falls under the category of NO EVIDENCE FOR THE PAST 10 MONTHS! Let’s see what the article lists as intent, shall we?
First: “There’s the secret meeting with Kremlin-connected Russians that the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., organized in Trump Tower ostensibly to obtain documents unfavorable to Hillary Clinton, as well as attempts by two Trump business associates to seek Kremlin help for a Trump Tower development in Moscow just as the presidential campaign was beginning to earnest.”
Let’s begin with the first part. Attempting to get information about a political opponent is as much a part of politics as the Parties. It’s called “opposition research”, a concept that the Left is very familiar with. Trump Jr. didn’t get anything out of said meeting, anyway. Not to mention that the dossier points to Clinton-Russia ties far more than Trump-Russia ties. If anyone should be under investigation, it should be Hillary. Not just for absolutely everything else that has earned her the name “Crooked Hillary”, but for the dossier as well.
The second part is even more ridiculous. What exactly does a Trump Tower development in Moscow have to do with collusion? When you’re in real estate, you have to get permission from the government of wherever you want to build something. He’s had to get permits from New York City, Miami and wherever a Trump Tower is in order to build there. Maybe New York City interfered in the election, if you’re following this logic. Maybe Miami interfered too. Give me a break.
Continuing with “examples of intent”: “There are also lingering questions about Trump’s first pick for national security adviser, Mike Flynn, and allegations he secretly assured Russia’s ambassador that Trump would lift Obama-imposed sanctions on Russia. And there’s the mysterious admission by a GOP operative, who claimed connections to the Trump campaign, that he sought help from Russians to expose thousands of emails deleted from Clinton’s private server.”
Ok, let’s break those down as well. First, the only reason anyone even knows about Mike Flynn is due to the fact that he was illegally unmasked. Holding a private conversation with someone from Russia about sanctions means nothing. Knowing what Obama has done in the past, lifting certain sanctions would be a good thing. It would strengthen America’s relationship with an enemy state.
Finally, the emails. Yes, can’t forget the emails, especially if you’re a Leftist. Try as you might, it’s still there. Never mind the fact that Hillary did hold confidential emails in a private server and proceeded to frantically delete the emails when it was discovered. No, that’s not shady at all. Let’s point to Trump making a JOKE that Russians should look for the emails. THAT is what we should be focused on.
Let’s also ignore the fact that the DNC WAS hacked by Russians and they adamantly refused to allow the FBI to look into it and opted to have their own people look into it. Yeah, not shady at all.
I can understand why the Left doesn’t want this investigation to come to an end. It’s everything they have. Nothing else has worked thus far and this is the one thing they lie to themselves about that it could work. We conservatives have warehouses-worth of ammunition against any Leftist argument, but the collusion story is one of their last lines of defense.
Calling him a racist hasn’t worked, as no one with a brain believes them. Calling him a predator while hiding the hundreds of skeletons in their own closet is laughable. Having an organization call him a fascist as they themselves act like fascists is worthy of a facepalm.
The media is no longer seen as trustworthy by the majority of Americans and the slow decent into insanity we’re witnessing by the Left is amusing.
They’re losing election after election and show no signs of improvement. They simply can’t allow this investigation to be ended. They can’t lose their story.
And no matter what verdict is found on the subject, the Left will always believe with all their being that Trump colluded with Russia. Facts have never mattered to these people, so why should they matter now?
But that’s ok. They can keep lying all they want. As long as there are people who speak the truth, the evils of their ways will continue to get exposed.

One of the bigger news pieces floating around these days after the big Harvey Weinstein scandal is the fact that Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his retirement from Congress, thus opting to not seek reelection.
In his retirement speech, Flake said that “There are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles. Now is such a time.” He’s essentially saying that the reason he’s retiring is because he feels as though he would be compromising his “principles” by running as a Republican under “Trump’s Republican party”. Yeah, never mind the fact that he was down by double digits to a candidate that lost to John McCain of all people in 2016. Never mind that he wasn’t going to have a career in Congress come the 2018 midterms anyway.
No, it’s compromising his “principles” that has him worried.
But why do I specifically mention the Mainstream Media in the headline? Simply because of the title of an article on CNN written by Chris Cillizza: “Jeff Flake just flew a kamikaze mission against Donald Trump.”
When was the last time you’ve heard anyone in the MSM write an article about how an opponent of Donald Trump was doomed, seemingly from the beginning? You know what a kamikaze mission is, right? Where a fighter pilot of an aircraft willingly crashes into an enemy, hoping to kill him as well as himself? Do you know why that analogy doesn’t quite work in this scenario? Because Flake’s “kamikaze” mission against Trump would be about as damaging as a fly running into your head, for Trump that is. For Flake, it’s about as damaging as a plane flying into a nuclear reactor.
No damage was made to Trump and Flake simply committed political suicide. The intriguing part, however, is that Chris seemingly took notice of the effort and likely result: Jeff’s defeat.
Perhaps what’s more intriguing is what Chris wrote at one point in his article. After noting that Steve Bannon is aiding Kelli Ward (the challenger Flake was losing by double digits to), Chris wrote: “It quickly became clear that in a fight between Trump/Bannon and Flake, the senator was going to lose – and lose badly.”
Again, when was the last time you’ve seen someone from the MSM admit that Trump would be the clear winner in a fight against an opponent? Up until the last few hours on election night, none of them were ready to report that Hillary would lose and Trump would be elected President of the United States. They wanted to believe there was no way Trump could win until reality hit them like a truck. This is quite possibly the first time we’ve seen someone from the MSM admit that Trump would come out of this fight as the clear winner.
The article later says: “This will be touted by the Trump forces as a victory. A chance to get rid of one of the burrs in the President’s saddle. A chance to further destroy the GOP establishment. And maybe it is. There’s little indication that outside of the likes of Flake, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and McCain, Flake’s retirement – and the speech he gave announcing it – will have any significant impact on how Republican leaders in the Senate and House react to Trump’s presidency. If anything, they may look to Flake as a cautionary tale of what happens when you publicly cross Trump and his base. If so, Flake will have failed. But he will have failed trying to show his party that, in his mind, following Trump blindly down the path he is heading could lead to the end of the Republican Party as currently compromised.”
There’s a decent bit from that quote, but here are the important parts:
1. Chris recognizes that this fight against Flake was another fight against the Republican Establishment and that it’s very clearly a victory for Trump. A part of “draining the swamp”.
2. Chris recognizes that Flake’s retirement will have little to no effect on other Republicans about Trump’s presidency. He knows that, other than some Republican RINO’s, Flake’s retirement really doesn’t mean much. Flake’s voting record is very down-the-middle Republican. He’s voted conservatively sometimes, knowing something won’t get passed such as Obamacare repeal efforts and voted against his Party in other occasions such as relief efforts for Harvey victims.
3. Chris recognizes one of the effects of opposing Trump publicly: utter backlash and defeat. Now, he’s not saying Trump is unbeatable and he’s certainly not suggesting that Democrats and people in general shouldn’t oppose him. But he at least pays enough attention to see what happens when someone publicly goes against Trump, particularly someone from the Republican Party.
4. Flake is both right and wrong about one thing: the fate of the Republican Party.
What do I mean by the last point? Let’s go back to the quote: “… he will have failed trying to show his party that, in his mind, following Trump blindly down the path he is heading could lead to the end of the Republican Party as currently compromised.” Flake is wrong in that it would mean the end of the Republican Party as a political party, but he’s right in that, as currently compromised, the end of the Republican Party is nigh.
When you hear Trump say “drain the swamp”, what exactly do you think he means by that? To me, it means defeating the Washington Establishment that cares only for itself and ignores the will of We the People and giving We the People back control over our country. Part of that process includes defeating not just already-elected Establishment people, but also reforming the Party’s leadership.
The Republican Party Jeff Flake fears will cease to exist is the one that’s been promising to repeal Obamacare for 7 years and has yet to deliver on that promise, no matter how many great opportunities they have to do it. The one that, during rallies, sounds super conservative but winds up voting liberal. The one that in one moment promises to defeat Barack Obama swiftly and then does nothing to make it happen.
That Republican Party is the one we’ve had to deal with for DECADES! The Republican Party led by the Bush’s, McCain, Romney, Ryan, McConnell and the like. THAT is the Republican Party Flake fears for, THAT is the Party that faces extinction and THAT is the Party that I want to see be destroyed. The Party of Lincoln, the Party of Reagan, the Party of Trump is the one I want in Washington. The one that will actually FIGHT the evil that is the Left and not merely allow them to do as they wish because it means the media won’t get too mad at them.
In Trump's Republican Party, there is no room for Establishment RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only, in case you didn’t know). In Trump's Republican Party, we only accept those who are willing to fight the Left and their anti-American ways. We don’t accept those who would undermine the Presidential administration that wants to Make America Great Again.
To use the ever-popular phrase: “You are either with us, or against us.” There’s no middle-ground here. If you’re against Trump and what he stands for, you’re siding with the Left. No other way around it. And if you’re siding with the Left, you’re ultimately siding with evil.
“What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Ever since Trump became president, the Left have whined and moaned that he somehow cheated to get elected and that he collaborated with Russia to beat Hillary in the election. We’ve known it was utter b.s. for a long time now, but now we’re starting to see the real scandal surrounding the election.
No, Russia didn’t do anything to alter the election results, but that hasn’t stopped the DNC from accusing Trump of collusion with a dossier. You know the one, right? The Russian dossier that says Russia and Trump were working together for 5 years (a ridiculous claim), that Russia had been giving Trump information on Hillary for 5 years (an even more ridiculous claim, considering we didn’t know who was going to be the nominees of the parties back then), oh, and that Trump hired prostitutes to pee on a bed in a presidential suite that the Obamas used once.
The ridiculous dossier, as it turns out, was FUNDED BY THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND DNC! And what’s the media doing? What they always do whenever the Democrats do something terrible: ignore it and try to redirect the blame on Republicans.
The Daily Caller talks about how many people in the media are trying to falsely claim the GOP funded the dossier first and, with one person in particular saying to the POTUS in a tweet: “… your son, son-in-law, and campaign manager met with Russians claiming to have dirt on Clinton.” So Clinton trying to spread b.s. dirt on Trump is fine but meeting with Russians (who didn’t have anything and never did) is treason?
Do you know what that b.s. dossier led to? THE ENTIRE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION BY THE FBI! Comey said that the dossier was the basis for the investigation. Now, knowing that the DNC funded the dossier, we know FOR SURE that the investigation will lead nowhere. Granted, we’ve known that for a long time now. But knowing the DNC funded the basis for the investigation completely kills the efforts made by the FBI, MSM and special counsel for the past 10 MONTHS!
So now it’s clear to everyone who has an ear to hear that the Russian investigation is based on nothing of substance. However, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some sort of collusion between a former candidate and Russia.
No, there was no collusion in the election. There was no hack or anything of the sort. There was, however, collusion between Hillary Clinton, her husband Bill, as well as the then-president Obama and Russia: in a little deal called THE URANIUM ONE DEAL! Unsurprisingly, this is not something being talked about by the media. But The Hill wrote a story on it.
The title: “FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow.”
The article is very detailed, but Breitbart made sure to highlight key factors about the Uranium One deal.
According to Breitbart: “The Hill reported last week that ahead of the deal, the FBI had uncovered ‘substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering’ to expand Russia’s nuclear footprint in the U.S. as early as 2009. The agency also found that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. to benefit the Clinton Foundation…”
Later on, they focus a bit more on the Clinton Foundation: “The Clinton Foundation took big bucks from Uranium investors. According to the Times, the Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, a mining investor who was also the chairman of Uranium One when Rosatom (a Russian company) acquired it. It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.”
It’s clear to me and to anyone who reads this that there is more collusion between the Clintons and Russia than between Trump and Russia. That there’s more collusion between Obama and Russia than Trump and Russia.
Friends, THIS is the real Russian collusion story. This just helps put the Clintons in a far darker light than they ever were before. That, alongside the fact that they, along with the DNC, helped fund that b.s. dossier that accuses Trump of collusion with Russia.
If there was an award for “biggest crook”, that award would have to be shared amongst Obama, the Clintons and the DNC. Do you see why Trump won? Ignore the fact that millions of people felt as though they were losing the country and Trump offered them hope for a better future and is thus far delivering on it. It’s not just that Trump was heavily favored by many Americans, it’s also that Hillary was INSANELY CROOKED!
The Clintons live and breathe corruption. Everything that they’ve done up to this point has been corrupted. Hillary was a corrupt Secretary of State, why else would she try so diligently to get rid of tens of thousands of emails and wipe the server that contained them clean? She was also a crooked candidate, screwing over Bernie Sanders by making it utterly impossible for him to be the Democrat nominee. She is a crooked politician who takes money from foreign governments in exchange for favors.
The Democrat Party is probably the most corrupt political party the world’s ever seen. And like the propagandists they are, the Mainstream Media chooses to ignore the Left’s corruption and instead tries to accuse their opponents of being corrupt.
Knowing all of this, I hope AG Jeff Sessions is useful at least one more time for Trump as opposed to just kinda being there and launches an investigation on the Clinton Foundation, the Obamas and the Democrat Party.
Those people deserve to go to jail.

It’s nothing new to know that when a liberal man does something nice for women, they get praised. It’s also not new to know that when a conservative man does the same, he gets criticized and is labeled a sexist.
What exactly am I talking about here? The double-standard that exists when a conservative man and liberal man both treat a woman with care and respect, yet the conservative guy gets bashed and liberal guy gets praised.
A story on the Daily Wire depicts the time when former “Friends” star David Schwimmer was interviewed by a female critic. The title: “David Schwimmer Did Something Awesome To Make A Female Critic Feel Comfortable. The Media Cheer Him. So Why Did They Target Mike Pence?”
It begins: “On Tuesday, critic Nell Minow revealed a little-known story about former Friends star David Schwimmer – a story that shows how classy Schwimmer is, and how hypocritical the Leftists in the media are… Schwimmer was doing a press junket for his film ‘Poynter’. She was supposed to interview Schwimmer in the bar of the hotel, but it was too loud, so Schwimmer offered to do the interview in his room.”
According to Indy 100 (the source for the Daily Wire article): “Perhaps realizing that this might be an uncomfortable and potentially dangerous situation for a woman, Schwimmer added that he could guarantee that a third person would be present in the room… Nell didn’t feel threatened and declined Schwimmer’s offer but appreciated the star’s sensitivity and consideration.”
Schwimmer clearly did the right thing. He offered a better place to have the interview and made sure that his female critic didn’t feel threatened or in danger, and thus offered that a third party be present with them to alleviate the critic. I praise him for it, as does the media. Particularly given the Harvey Weinstein bombshell that hit Hollywood a couple of weeks ago.
However, at this point you may be asking “where’s the double-standard you were talking about earlier?” Well, for that, let’s continue with the Daily Wire article.
The article, after praising Schwimmer themselves, continues with: “Flash back to April. Vice President Mike Pence found himself raked over the coals for the sin of stating that he would not dine alone with a woman not his wife, or attend functions at which drinking took place without his wife present.”
Pretty noble, if I dare say so myself. He makes sure to respect women by not dining alone with them without his wife present and refuses to go anywhere that might include drinking if his wife wasn’t with him there either. He doesn’t want to make his female counterpart feel nervous or scared. He doesn’t want to run the risk of hurting someone else by requiring himself to be with his wife at such events.
He’s quite the gentleman, isn’t he? Worthy of at least a thumbs up or an approving nod if you can’t bring yourself to say something nice about the VP, right? Wrong, apparently.
According to the Los Angeles Times: “If professional women and men cannot be alone together, women are the ones who will pay a price. They will not have the kind of mentoring that promotes workplace advancement. They will not develop the same kinds of relationships with bosses that their male colleagues do. They will lose out. ‘I believe this is gender discrimination,’ said Kim Elsesser, 52, a UCLA lecturer on gender and psychology who founded a proprietary quantitative hedge fund at Morgan Stanley after graduation from Vassar and MIT.”
And according to The Atlantic: “When men avoid professional relationships with women, even if for noble reasons, it actually hurts women in the end.”
Yep, Mike Pence is discriminating against women when he prefers to not make them feel unsafe, but Schwimmer is a perfect gentleman when he does the same. Not to take anything away from Schwimmer - his actions were praise-worthy. But when a conservative man wishes to respect women in that particular manner, why is it considered sexist?
There’s not just a conservative-liberal double-standard, but also a man-woman double-standard. In the Times article, the author talks about men and women not being able to be alone together affecting the woman but not the man. But that’s only assuming that the man is the mentor and the woman the mentee. What if the roles are reversed? What if a 20-something year old guy wants to be mentored by, say, Jennifer Aniston and she says no? Is that discrimination against the guy? Of course not!
The Left makes victims of women, so they are the only ones that can be discriminated against. Same thing happens when race is involved. So there’s a double-standard to how they react when a guy is “discriminated against” and when a woman is “discriminated against.”
It’s the same (though slightly different) when it’s a conservative and a liberal guy. Schwimmer made sure to make the female critic feel safe and was praised for it (as he should be), but when Pence says he doesn’t want to be alone with a woman other than his wife and wants to be a perfectly fine gentleman, he’s bashed and attacked for “discriminating against women.”
The Daily Wire summed it up perfectly: “If they participate in precisely the same behavior, religious conservatives do it because they’re supposedly sexist, and secular Leftists do it because they’re supposedly glorious and caring.”
It doesn’t surprise me that the media reacted the way they did about Pence’s decision to be A GOOD GUY. He will never be a good guy in their eyes. Everything he does must be for a malicious reason, even if it’s clearly not. He could donate baskets of muffins to a children’s hospital and they would think he’s poisoning the muffins and killing sick children.
It’s beyond the Isaiah 5:20 verse about people calling evil “good” and good “evil”. It’s people calling good “good” only when a liberal does it but calling it “evil” when a conservative does it.
To the Left, anything we ever do is considered evil. Why else do you think those college students I talked about last week thought Trump’s plan was bad before they even heard it? They thought it was going to be bad simply because it had the word “Trump” next to it. They thought it was going to damage the middle and lower classes and benefit only the rich - a lie that the Leftist media continues to spew no matter what.
I don’t expect this to ever end, which is why I added “constant” in the title. I don’t expect the Left to ever come to their senses, admit to their hypocrisy and sinful and evil nature. I’d be the most naïve person in the world to expect as much. But it’s important that I (as well as other conservatives) write articles like these to highlight the hypocrisy and disgust of the Left as much as I can. I may not be able to convince Obama or Hillary to progressively become more conservative, but I can convince people outside the Establishment to be more conservative, and therefore, be closer to Christ.
And in the end, that’s really the main goal of this site. To tell you the Truth and call out lies, deceit and overall evil in the world.

It isn’t uncommon for former presidents to wish to continue doing things in public once they are done being POTUS. Obama has gone back to his “community organizer” days in the hopes to further destroy the country, albeit at a relatively smaller scale (at least in public).
Jimmy Carter is no different. After 4 years of being the, then, worst president the country had ever seen, Carter decided to continue to be relevant by creating The Carter Center, a way for him to continue to do things on an international level.
And now, he hopes to be sent to North Korea by President Trump to try and alleviate tensions between the two nations. And the way he’s doing it? Appear to be more conservative than he’s ever been... sort of.
In an interview with the New York Times, Carter defended the President from the media, saying: “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about. I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
And that’s not all. The New York Times interviewer asked the former president about many different issues.
On North Korea, the largest reason he’s even doing this: “I’m afraid of a situation. I don’t know what they’ll do. Because they want to save their regime. And we greatly overestimate China’s influence on North Korea. Particularly to Kim Jong-un…” He also said that he’s spoken with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, and said to the interviewer: “I told him that I was available if they ever needed me.”
On Trump’s “souring our image in the world”, according to the New York Times: “Well, I think he might be escalating it but I think that precedes Trump. The United States has been the dominant character in the whole world and now we’re not anymore. And we’re not going to be. Russia’s coming back and India and China are coming forward.”
While I commend Carter’s comments (a sentence I thought I’d never say), I have to also raise a point here. He’s not very optimistic about the country, is he? I think America can go back to being the “dominant character in the whole world”. Why? Because Trump is a lot like Reagan, who MADE America the dominant character in the whole world. When Trump says he wants to Make America Great Again, that’s what he’s talking about: American dominance in the world stage. Yes, Russia is coming back and China (not so sure about India) is growing as well. But I’m certain that we can beat them to return to being the absolute hyper power we were at the fall of the Soviet Union.
On Obama: “He made some very wonderful statements, in my opinion (when talking about the Middle East), when he first got in office, and then he reneged on that.” According to the New York Times, Carter “complained that Obama ‘refused’ to talk to North Korea more…”
On “Russian collusion” in the election: “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes.”
On Confederate statues: “That’s a hard one for me. My great-grandfather was at Gettysburg on the Southern side and his two brothers were with him in the Sumter artillery… I never have looked on the carvings on Stone Mountain or the statues as being racist in their intent. But I can understand African-Americans’ aversion to them, and I sympathize with them. But I don’t have any objection to them being labeled with explanatory labels or that sort of thing.”
On NFL players kneeling: “I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate. I would rather see all the players stand during the American anthem.”
On Trump “deepening racial divisions”, according to the New York Times: “Yes, I think he is exacerbating it. But maybe not deliberately.”
While Carter isn’t full-on defending Trump on everything (such as the bogus claim that he’s deepening racial divisions, something Obama is the biggest culprit for), he’s still trying to make himself out to be a bit more likable to Trump, while not completely abandoning his Leftist ways.
However, there are some problems with that. First, HE ALREADY TRIED THE NORTH KOREA THING! Not in recent times, mind you. No, he tried it in 1994. You know, the year the U.S. made a deal with the Norks that eventually led to North Korea building nukes? Yeah, that one. He’s already royally screwed up one deal with the communist nation, why would we send him again? We’d be better off selling Dennis Rodman to Little Rocket Man in exchange for peace. (Yes, I’m aware Rodman is black. No, this isn’t a race thing. Relax, potential liberal reader if there are any).
Secondly, it’s painfully obvious that he’s just selling himself to the President. While he may truly believe the things he said about the way the media treats Trump and that NFL players should stand and look to protest another way, his end-goal is clear: do something somewhat relevant this millennium. Ok, maybe that’s a bit harsh, but it’s the truth. The only reason he did this interview is so that Trump would consider sending him to North Korea for peace talks simply because he doesn’t hate Trump as much as everyone else.
Lastly, negotiations aren’t going anywhere. Little Rocket Man hasn’t fired a nuke yet because 1), they’re absolutely screwed if they dare do anything of the sort and 2) they don’t want to tick off China. China has said that if North Korea attacks first and the U.S. retaliates, they will not interfere AKA they will allow North Korea to be utterly destroyed. But China doesn’t want that. If North Korea falls, especially to the U.S., it means one less communist state in the world, and one less communist puppet in the world.
So with all that, there’s absolutely no reason for Trump to send Carter to North Korea. Not to mention that Carter could be captured, made a political prisoner, and be forced to reveal sensitive info about the country. It’s safer for everyone, including Carter, if Trump denies Carter’s request.
Not to mention that the interview was an obvious façade. Like I said, the point of the interview was not to get on Trump’s good side, but to try to go to North Korea, try to fix that hot mess and be relevant at least once in the last 20 years - he just has to actually make the effort to be liked by Trump. Earlier I said that he may truly believe the things he’s saying, but it’s just as possible that he DOESN’T believe those things. He’s a Leftist and a life-long member of the Establishment. I don’t trust those snakes. While his intentions may not be malevolent, I still wouldn’t trust Carter no matter what he says.

I believe there’s a bit of conservatism within all of us who are not in the Establishment. I remember seeing a tweet by basketball superstar LeBron James that came off as rather conservative, saying that the Golden State Warriors (who are worth roughly $2.6 billion, according to Forbes) should be able to use however amount of money they want in the NBA’s free agency period BECAUSE they’re worth so much. Unfortunately, the NBA only allows teams to use a certain amount of “cap space” to sign players and their worth as teams don’t matter.
I’d say that’s a rather conservative tweet coming from a largely Leftist athlete. Why? Because conservatism involves COMMON SENSE! However, LeBron’s tweet isn’t the topic of today’s article. The topic of the article is what was discovered by a journalist working for CampusReform.org. The journalist went to George Washington University to ask some students how they felt about Trump’s tax plan.
Initially, they were all against it. None of them knew what was in it, but because it has Trump’s name attached to it, they think it’s a heartless, cold tax plan that will benefit the rich at the expense of the middle and lower classes. The students said things along the lines of: “It’s better for the upper class than for anyone else.” As well as: “It’s probably not the most efficient nor beneficial to the general populous.” They all felt negative towards Trump’s plan, having never heard it… then, they heard it just not the way they thought they would.
The journalist then told the students: “So, Bernie Sanders came out with his plan. Some people are calling it a ‘compassionate alternative’”, and then, he told them the details of TRUMP’S plan. “First, one of ‘Bernie Sanders’ plans is to increase the Child Tax Credits, which is tax money given back to families when they have children.” That was just the FIRST part of the plan.
When asked how they felt about that part, the students all felt POSITIVE about it. One said: “Parents who have children go through a lot… getting money back really helps the children.” And another saying: “I think that’s great.”
Then, the journalist detailed the second part of the plan, which is to eliminate the Death Tax, a tax that takes some money from those who die by taxing their estate and such things, while the rest would go to the family. This way, the family keeps ALL of the benefits during their time of grief. When asked about this particular point, the students reacted the same as with the previous one. They loved it.
“I think that’s definitely something that we should be doing.”, said one of the students. “I think that’s a good idea because I’m from New Jersey and we used to have like a really heavy inheritance tax.”, said another.
Then, the journalist reveals part 3 of the plan, which is to lower small business rates to a maximum of 25%. This means that small businesses can’t be taxed more than 25% on what they make. And THIS ONE is really the one that students should’ve realized that this was not Bernie’s plan. Bernie would NEVER try to lower taxes for any sort of business because he’s a communist lunatic who thinks capitalism and competition are evil and bad for people.
And yet, the students also reacted positively to that part as well. With one of them saying: “My family has a small business, so I would definitely think that’s a positive.” And, perhaps my favorite comment: “Taxing them less makes more sense.” What did I tell you? There’s a bit of conservatism within all of us simply because it involves common sense.
Finally, he asks the students if they think “Bernie” did a good job with this tax plan, and they all think he did, indeed, do a good job, with one of them saying: “I think it’s pretty good. Definitely better than whatever Trump is proposing.” … and then, comes the reveal. He says “What if I told you that this is actually Trump’s tax plan, not Bernie’s”. And that simply leaves them stunned.
With one of them saying: “I am shocked that I do agree with Trump on certain things.” And another saying: “I’m definitely happily surprised that it sounds a lot better than I would’ve expected it to.”
They were all shocked to see it, with another one saying: “I would’ve imagined he would be a little more stupid than that.” And then the same student says that she doesn’t think it’s a stupid plan.
Then the students reflect back on their initial feelings towards Trump’s plan, now knowing what it is. They realize that, because Trump’s name is attached to it, they would’ve expected it to be some sort of evil scheme to screw everyone in America except for the 1%. To their credit, they realize they were simply being biased against Trump for it, believing the plan was good when they thought it was Bernie’s.
And, surprisingly, one of the students said that because people tend to go to one source of media, and they don’t go to others, it’s “tough to get other points of views”. Kudos to that particular student, realizing (at least for that particular moment) that getting news from only one source is not going to get you the whole truth (or any part of the truth at all).
Now, I say “at least for that particular moment” because it’s entirely possible that some of them will simply go back to being how they were about everything Trump does and proposes. Some of them might learn to do their research on something before immediately believing the MSM and what other people think of it, but it’s also possible that they will be biased against future Trump proposals simply because of the negative connotation they believe there is with Trump’s name.
I certainly do hope that all of these students learn that just because Trump’s name is attached to something it doesn’t mean that it will be a plot for world domination. But it’s refreshing to see at least some shred of conservatism (even if they claim to be hardcore Leftists) within these college students. They know a good tax plan when they see one, but first they actually have to SEE IT as opposed to being told by their favorite politician what is in it.
If everyone did research, learned history and found out what exactly the Left proposes, no one would ever vote Democrat. The reason why Democrats win in the first place is because they deceive people into believing that something bad for them will be good and something good for them will be bad.
Deceit is the only way the Left can ever win. They can’t win in the realm of ideas because no one would ever back their ideas if people knew what they were. People were deceived into loving Obamacare, when it’s insanely unaffordable and covers things people simply don’t need. It’s a terrible piece of legislation, but people were deceived by the Left into thinking it was great and affordable.
If people actually knew what was in the bill, they would want it repealed immediately. It’s the whole issue about wicked people vs. weak people. The wicked lie to the weak. But when told the truth, the weak don’t fall to the wicked and become strong.
But that’s a topic for another time. As of now, I will simply delight in the fact that, when people use common sense, they tend to be more conservative, even if they think they’re being liberal.
