Imagine that you have a neighbor that lives all alone and is so sick that they can’t take care for themselves and you volunteer to take care of them until they get better. In order to do so, you leave your family behind for a few days and you have to spend night after night in your neighbor’s home, making sure he or she takes their medicine, and that their temperature doesn’t go up too much. In the process, you’ve consumed electricity and some food that your neighbor had in his/her house.
Now your neighbor is doing much better and you’re ready to go back home to continue taking care of your family. Before you leave your neighbor’s home, he/she hands a bill over to you with all that you consumed during the time you spent there, that they expect you to pay: electricity, cereal, milk, bread, etc plus rent. You are shocked, because you left your own family and didn’t take care of them just to take care of your neighbor, and THIS is the thanks you get?
That’s what’s happening to the hundreds of volunteer health care workers who left their families to go to New York to help the State and its COVID-19 patients during this pandemic.
You see, Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that volunteer health care workers who traveled to NY to help his people out will have to pay State Income Tax there for as long as they were in the State doing their jobs. Here’s what he said during his Tuesday news conference:
"We're not in a position to provide any subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit […] If we don't get more money from Washington, we can't fund schools, right, so at the rate we want to fund them. We are in dire financial need".
The issue first came up when the temporary hospital in Central Park was being erected by Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian aid organization led by Franklin Graham:
"Our financial comptroller called me, and he said, 'Do you know that all of you are going to be liable for New York state income tax?'" said Ken Isaacs, a Vice President for Samaritan's Purse. "I said, 'What?' [The comptroller] said, 'Yeah, there's a law. If you work in New York State for more than 14 days, you have to pay state income tax.' I didn't know that."
Isaacs said he’s actually more concerned by the paperwork that will go into paying those taxes:
"I think that once that's unleashed...once you start filing that, you have to do that for like a whole year or something," he said.
According to a partner at accounting firm Spielman, Koenigsberg & Parker, LLP, entities from "these other states will have to register in New York and do withholding here in New York."
Any out-of-state resident who's come to New York to work on Coronavirus relief is subject to the tax after 14 days, just like any other worker in New York who goes to the State to work on anything else. The tragedy here is that all these people were moved by compassion and did what they felt was right to help their fellow Americans…and THIS is the thanks they get?
Not only that, it was Cuomo himself who ASKED for help from all of these people. So did New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. They both asked for help. Imagine that! Many of these health care workers are collecting paychecks from companies back in their home states, which allowed them to go to New York to volunteer, and now they're obligated to pay State Income Tax...
The insanity of this is unbelievable. Who in their right mind would go to New York to help the next time something like this happens? The people of New York are mostly liberals who elect people like Cuomo, who has the highest Coronavirus mortality rate IN THE NATION. The governor has caused more deaths than needed, and now he wants to collect income tax from the very people he BEGGED for help? Why would anyone want to do this again in the future? Particularly if New York INSISTS on electing corrupt and incompetent people like De Blasio or Cuomo? The 13 Billion Deficit was NOT created by COVID-19 – this deficit was built up by years of incompetent management by Cuomo himself.
I won’t EVER go to New York for as long as this insanity continues. After all, Cuomo himself said conservatives are not welcome in New York a few years ago. Why pay them to be insulted like this?

Starbucks has been under fire lately, seemingly for “racial bias” due to a video showing two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks and another story of a black man being denied entry to a restroom. I won’t go into a whole lot of detail about it, just know that, according to the woman who recorded the video, the staff at the shop called the police because the men hadn’t ordered anything while they waited for a friend to arrive and another incident in which a black man needed to use the restroom, having not made a purchase, and was denied entry despite the fact that another man, who was white, also had not made a purchase but was allowed entry.
The first situation is rather strange, as the two black men seemingly were not doing anything wrong, just sitting in the shop and waiting for their friend. I don’t know what warranted the manager to call the police or what warranted the police to arrest the two men. Thankfully, they were both released some hours later, but you really have to wonder what could have been going on there.
According to witnesses, the two men weren’t doing anything.
Due to these two circumstances, Starbucks has been under fire, with the hashtag “#BoycottStarbucks” popping up, prompting Starbucks CEO to do some damage control and conduct a “racial-bias education program”.
Now, I’m not going to defend Starbucks in the least. They are progressive loons and I’ve been doing my own “#BoycottStarbucks” movement for a very long time for different reasons. But it’s very interesting to see a company that has a brand of progressivism seem so racist.
Of course, they’re Leftists, so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised, but still. Their whole brand is that of “progressives” who are only biased against police and military. They don’t tend to show bias against black people, so it’s very interesting to see this.
But I really should be getting to the bigger reason I’m writing this article. I, for one, don’t really care for Starbucks’ reputation or what people think about them. That’s not the reason I’m writing this article. The reason for this article is that a black man shared a video on Twitter in which he, in essence, took advantage of the scrutiny Starbucks has been getting and managed to convince a barista to give him a free coffee.
The video shows the man telling the barista: “I heard ya’ll was racist, so I came to get my free coffee.”
The barista, who is a white female, responds: “I saw that!”
Prompting the man to say: “I heard you guys don’t like black people, so I came to get my Starbucks reparations voucher.”
The barista then said: “Is that a real thing?” It’s not. “I mean, I’ll give it to you, I saw that on my Twitter last night and I was like, what the f**k!”
The barista then proceeds to make the man the coffee and the man sarcastically said: “That’s what I’m talking about! This is justice.”
Now, there’s nothing malicious about this video or what I’m saying about the man. The man, whom I’ll refer to as Bryan Sharpe, his name, was simply taking advantage of the ignorance of the company and the barista. As a matter of fact, he even commented with: "Black privilege gets me free coffee. I love racism. Only in America." Clearly, all he was doing was trolling the barista.
All he had to do was claim Starbucks is racist and the barista complied, giving him free coffee, which is most likely a violation of company policy, but since this is “reparations” in the barista’s mind, it’s fine.
The barista didn’t want to make it seem as though she was racist herself, and so she complied with Sharpe’s request to get some coffee free of charge. It’s more funny than it is anything else.
But this does highlight how tightly wound the Left is when it comes to racial issues. If they appear to have been racist, even if they weren’t, they will immediately submit and apologize. The ironic part in their efforts to restrict free speech is that they end up restricting their own free speech some times.
I recall a time when Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter, Kelly, was on The View and proceeded to say something that was viewed as racist. This was back during the 2016 election and they were talking about Donald Trump. Kelly Osbourne said: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”
Of course, she immediately had to apologize and attempt to rephrase it. Frankly, as a Latino, I found that to be more funny than offensive. Personally, I don’t really get offended if someone attacks my race. If someone refers to me as a Mexican, I’ll correct them since that’s a nationality, not a race, but I won’t get offended.
I’m not petty and shallow enough to be offended by something so silly. Someone could call me a “beaner” and I still wouldn’t care. But the interesting thing is that, Leftists do care about that.
They don’t ever want to offend anyone, unless that person is a Christian, conservative, Trump supporter and Republican, but they don’t want to offend other people. So, they restrict even their own speech.
Now, I’m not saying we should all start saying the N-word, or call gay people the F-word. It’s in pretty bad taste to do something like that. But people shouldn’t be so concerned about “offending” people. Cotton shouldn’t offend black people. A cross shouldn’t offend Atheists. Darwin’s Origin of the Species certainly doesn’t offend me.
The American flag shouldn’t offend people. Kelly Osbourne’s comment shouldn’t offend Latinos. It should be refuted, since she’s making the assumption that Trump wants to deport all Latinos, which is simply not true, but it shouldn’t offend people.
Likewise, the Starbucks barista shouldn’t risk her own job (though this being Starbucks, and given the reasons she gave free coffee to the guy, I don’t think there’s much risk anyway) just to “appease” someone who is very clearly taking advantage of the company’s situation.
Now, I’m not saying there shouldn’t be anything that offends us. Of course, there are legitimate reasons to be offended. I was certainly offended when Joy Behar insulted the Vice President’s Christian beliefs. I was also offended that it took her about a month to apologize.
I was offended at the “art” piece of Jesus Christ in a jar of urine. I’m offended every time NFL players protest the National Anthem. I’m offended every time someone burns the American flag or flies it upside down.
I’m offended every time someone is discriminated against for their Christian or Jewish faith, their conservative views or their support of Trump.
Why? Because these are legitimate reasons to be offended. Cotton is not something to be offended over. No black person today has had to pick cotton under the threat of a white master. No white person today has owned a slave.
The Starbucks barista shouldn’t feel as though she’d commit some sort of hate crime by denying the guy some free coffee. And notice how every time I refer to Sharpe, unless it’s important to take notice, I never refer to him as “the black man”? Just “the man”? That’s because, unless it’s necessary to point it out, I don’t care about the guy’s race. Same goes for the barista. I could’ve referred to her as “the white barista” or “the female barista”, but neither is necessary to point out every single time.
THAT is what real progress looks like. What real EQUALITY looks like. Not looking at someone and referring to them as their race unless it’s absolutely necessary and certainly not taking advantage of my own race to make someone else feel guilty. I don’t care about the guy’s or the barista’s race or gender. But that is all liberals and Leftists can focus on.
If someone didn’t get a job in a company and they tell their liberal friend about it, they might think there’s race discrimination going on.
Remember the Canadian superintendent in the “white privilege” poster? That she claimed that her skin color had given her unfair advantages?
How is that in any way progressive? How is that in any way equalizing? How is a Starbucks barista giving free coffee to a black man “reparations” for at least the incidents surrounding the company?
How are reparations a way to move forward? All they are is an excuse not to try to be successful and asking for things to be given to you, forcing a member of another race to feel guilty for transgressions that had nothing to do with them and had everything to do with the Democrat Party.
The way to move forward isn’t to essentially put white people in the place of black people of the past. That would literally be regression. The way to move forward isn’t also shaming and attacking someone for being white. That’s also regression.
The way to move forward is to study history so that we may never again repeat it.
Alas, I digress. Returning to Sharpe, I’m not trying to call him out for anything. If anything, I’m calling out the fear and ignorance coming from the barista. She seemed like a nice enough kid trying to do the right thing, but she shouldn’t be so worried about appearing racist if she were to say “no”. If there’s a racial problem with Starbucks or its employees, that’s up to the company and the individual employees, not her necessarily.
“For God shows no partiality.”
James Comey is set to release his book: “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” on April 17th, 2018. Expectedly, the Left, upon reading excerpts from the book, is praising it and making the claim that there are issues in that book that could really hurt Trump. Spoiler alert: they’re all nothing-burgers.
But that’s a different matter entirely. What I’m focusing on is the fact that, because the media is praising the book and saying this will hurt Trump, the RNC released a video that shows Leftist hypocrisy at its highest.
The video is a compilation of Democrats calling into question Comey’s integrity, credibility and judgment.
The video features short clips of people like Sen. Chuck Schumer saying that he was “appalled by what Director Comey did” upon re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails; Sen. Bernie Sanders saying: “Comey acted in an outrageous way”; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saying: “[Comey] made a mistake… not in the right job”; and even a tweet from Howard Dean reading: “[Comey] may have destroyed the credibility of the FBI forever.”
Which is really saying something when you fast-forward from that moment to today, when the FBI’s credibility as a whole is in tatters.
But perhaps one of the most telling quotes comes from Rep. Jerry Nadler, who said: “The President should fire Comey immediately and he ought to initiate an investigation.”
Now, unfortunately, I couldn’t quite confirm when Nadler said this, but I have every reason to believe he was talking about Obama, not Trump.
Furthermore, upon doing some more research, I came across an article, interestingly enough published on ABC News’ website, that depicts some of the very same Democrats in the video calling on Comey to resign.
First, they have Chuck Schumer, who said: “I do not have confidence in him any longer.”
Then, Nancy Pelosi, whom they quote with the very same quote from this video, saying that he’s not right for the job.
They also have Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN): “If Director Comey cares about the bureau and the rule of law… I’m sure upon reflection of this action, he will submit his letter of resignation for the nation’s good.”
They quote Rep. Maxine Waters: “All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility. That’s it.” And even said, in an interview with MSNBC in which she complained about Trump firing Comey, that “If [Clinton] had won the White House, I believe that, given what he did to her and what he tried to do, she should have fired him.”
I just love the Left’s hypocrisy some times.
From now on, every time you see James Comey tweeting at Trump and you see your friend retweeting what he said to or about him, remind them that even Democrats thought he was not credible and lacking in integrity.
Now, going beyond all of that, I believe this is a teachable moment.
You can clearly see what the Left thinks of James Comey when he acts in a way that they do not like. When he steps out of line. When he has some influence in the election and it’s not to hurt the Republican candidate. They attack, bash and destroy him. They question his credibility, his integrity, his judgment and even whether he’s the right person for the job… all of which is something we have been doing since Comey’s firing.
They loved him when he closed the investigation on the Clinton e-mails and let a criminal walk free but berate him when he re-opens the investigation and dealing a blow to Hillary’s chances of winning the election.
Now, I’m not going to say that that very action is what cost Hillary the election. Obama was the worst President of all time and she was just going to be more of the same and the country was tired of it. She was likely going to lose, open investigation or not. But I won’t deny that the re-opening of the investigation hurt Hillary to a certain extent.
Upon the closing of the investigation (the first time), the media had prime opportunity to bury any remnants of an investigation having ever taken place and focus more of their time on Trump. Closing the investigation would’ve allowed the Democrats to claim Hillary’s innocence, but all of those opportunities went out the window when Comey re-opened the investigation (before promptly closing it once more soon after because his friends were angry with him).
The Left’s bias is evident. When Comey helped Hillary, he was a “good guy”, “full of integrity” and “perfectly credible”. But when he steps out of line and does something to anger the Democrats aka doing the right thing, they berate and bash him, hoping to assassinate his character.
Now, he’s back where the Left wants him to be, as a martyr for the Leftist cause to take down Donald Trump, and they have nothing but good things to say about him and his book.
But all of that is irrelevant when there’s very accessible records of Democrats attacking Comey in much a similar way that Donald Trump attacks him. He has questioned his credibility, and evidently, so have the Democrats.
Now, if they’re hoping this book will be the end of Trump, they will be very much disappointed. I doubt this book, particularly when reminding people of what Democrats have said about the author, will do much if anything to harm Trump. If Michael Wolff’s book did nothing, neither will this.
At least this attempt at taking down Trump is a nice change of pace from giving credibility to a porn star. Though they will get back to her once the “hype” for this book dies down.
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”
There’s no denying that a big part of the reason Donald Trump won was because he managed to get a lot of Democrat votes in 2016. Given his message of Making America Great Again, there was little reason for people to not vote for him. That is not a Republican message. It’s not a Democrat message. It’s an American message. And red-blooded Americans want just that.
So, we go to Youngstown, Ohio, where CNN asked a group of five former Democrat voters who voted for Trump about how they feel with the state of the country and how well a job Trump is doing.
And the answer visibly astounds CNN’s Martin Savage, the man asking the questions.
The interview begins with an iron worker by the name of Rick Green saying: “I realized that the core foundation for the country is slipping away.” Another person in the panel, a mother of four children by the name of Anna Para, said: “It got to a point where I did not like the direction that my country was going.”
The narrator, Savage himself, then informs us that in 2016, according to the Mahoning County Board of Elections: “approximately 7000 registered Democrats switched parties to become Republicans.”
Now, just from reading that text, all we get is the number of Democrats who switched to Republican. But if you watch the video down below, you can actually hear the disdain in the narrator’s voice when he says “Republicans.” He actually sounds disgusted to even have to say something like that. And that just made me laugh the first time I watched the video.
Regardless, returning to the panel of interviewees, another Democrat, this time a pastor by the name of Derrick Anderson, said: “[Trump] said he’s gonna make America first and he’s gonna bring jobs back.” Then, another interviewee, this time a machine shop worker by the name of Geno DiFabio, said: “Donald Trump says ‘you’re in lousy trade deals’. We fixed that, the jobs can come back.”
And the final interviewee, a minority student by the name of Justis Harrison, said: “Something that [Trump] said that really sticks with me is that he wants to give the power back to the American people and that’s something that I can certainly get behind.”
When Martin Savage asked how Trump is doing, they responded with “fantastic” and “phenomenal”, with Anna saying: “Better that I ever would have dreamt”. To which Savage, somewhat shocked, asks “Really?” And they all answer with a resounding “yes”, with Derrick adding: “He’s doing wonderful. He’s staying on task.”
Savage then asks: “How big an issue, to all of you, is immigration?” Notice how he asks about immigration, not ILLEGAL immigration. As though there was no real difference. Regardless, the panel answers: “Huge.”
Now, THAT, really shocks Savage, who asked: “Really? In Youngstown, Ohio?” As though the issue of ILLEGAL immigration should really only matter to those living in border states. Yes, Mr. Savage, this is an issue that matters to Trump supporters from California to Maine. From Arizona to Washington. From Florida to Alaska. From Texas to North Dakota.
Illegal immigration is something that mostly affects border states, but it’s something that matters to all Trump supporters.
Which is something that the panel makes sure to inform Savage about with them all saying “absolutely”. Rick went further, saying: “And as far as I’m concerned, they’re stealing jobs of rightful citizens.” And Justis added: “I feel like when people come here illegally that’s just very disrespectful. You don’t respect our laws you shouldn’t be able to come here freewheeling like that.”
Which is a very good point that the Left misses. When the Left talks about Trump and illegal immigration, they always play the race card and claim he’s racist for wanting to kick these people out and make sure they stay out. In truth, it’s not about race.
If it were about race, as a Hispanic, I’d be quaking in my boots about the thought of getting deported. If it were about race, I wouldn’t have supported Trump in 2016 and wouldn’t ardently continue supporting him throughout the coming elections. But it’s not about race. It’s about rule of law. Those who break the law are punished. Race has nothing to do with that.
Which is precisely why whenever idiots like Colin Kaepernick claim cops are racist, I can’t help but to cringe. To paraphrase a line from the movie Liar, Liar, STOP BREAKING THE LAW, A**HOLES! People who obey the law tend to not be threatened by the police. That’s something that applies to everyone, regardless of race.
Likewise, those who break the law by coming here illegally deserve the punishment dictated by the statutes. Illegals coming here should be punished. I don’t care if they’re from Mexico, Haiti, or Norway. You come here illegally, you have to be punished.
And thankfully, this is a point that these Youngstown, Ohio citizens understand perfectly well.
Returning to the video, Savage then talks about Trump’s tweets which used to cause Geno to cringe, but they don’t anymore.
“So you don’t cringe anymore because you’ve grown numb to it, or…?”, asked Savage. Geno answered with: “Not at all. I know what he’s done and I’m starting to get an inkling why he uses Twitter in the way he does. Because if all he had to rely on is what people say about him, oh my God, I might not like the guy. I love the job he’s doing.”
In a perfect world, this would help Savage understand why Trump supporters like it when Trump uses Twitter in the manner that he does. But this is not a perfect world, and he’ll probably still think Trump is a crazy man with a Twitter account and his supporters are all mindless sheep reading what the crazy guy is saying and believing every word of it.
The Left claims to not understand why Trump uses Twitter, but even they know why. Because if it was left up to the MSM alone, his support wouldn’t be as much as it is today. That’s why they say that he should stop tweeting so much.
Moving on, Savage talks about the claims made against Trump that he’s a racist. Justis, the minority student, said that she had met Trump at a rally, that he’s not a racist and that he “was just the nicest person and if he was a racist as everyone paints him out to be, he could have just walked right past me and not even said a word.”
Aside from the anecdote about the rally, she basically says what all Trump supporters, regardless of their race, say about him. “He’s not a racist.” “He’s a nice guy”. I don’t know Trump personally, unfortunately, but he seems to be a far nicer and kinder guy than Obama. To Obama’s credit, he was charming, which is why he was as popular as he was. But Trump has a lot of charm as well. The difference is that much of that charm comes DESPITE what the media says about him.
Truth be told, had the media been as tough on Obama as they are on Trump, I doubt he would’ve been even a quarter as charming or popular as he was.
Regardless, we move on with the following topic Savage brings up: the lies. Savage asks: “Do you think he’s a liar?”
Geno answers with: “No. I think he’s falling short on some of his goals. We all do.”
Which is a valid point. At this point in time, we had hoped and expected that tax reform and Obamacare would be things that were taken care of a few months into his presidency and we’d be farther along in Making America Great Again than we are. But we put too much trust in the Republican Establishment and so far, we’ve only managed to bring about tax reform.
Not to take anything away from that achievement in itself, but many of us hoped we’d be farther along by this point in time. Then again, that’s not really something Trump had that much control over. The President, thankfully, doesn’t control Congress. The branches have to work together to get things done. That’s a system that I wouldn’t dream of changing. What I do dream of changing is the jerks in Capitol Hill obstructing the MAGA agenda every chance they get.
But this is not something Trump directly controls. When it comes to things he can directly control, such as the military and influencing the economy, he’s doing fantastic. ISIS is in a worse state at this point than many of us even imagined they’d be. The economy is growing at rates Obama never accomplished. Overall, as the head of the Executive Branch, Trump is doing fantastic.
And even the panel recognizes that the economy is truly booming. While Savage points out that the Youngstown, Ohio economy isn’t booming (no wonder, since they have a Democrat mayor), other places in the country are flourishing. And Rick mentions that small businesses are starting to pick up in the area and that Trump’s tax reform will help the economy in the long-run.
When talking about how the media treats Trump, the panel agrees that the media doesn’t give the President a fair shake.
Wrapping this article up since it’s running a bit long, all I’ll say is that CNN clearly didn’t expect to see DEMOCRAT voters still supporting the Republican President. I can tell Savage was shocked by every answer these people gave him. And that’s something I’m very happy to see.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
WARNING, THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MATERIAL NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER AUDIENCES.
On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Trump made a very outrageous comment about countries like Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. The Post reports that unnamed sources – specifically, “several people briefed on the meeting”, aka people who weren’t even there – informed the Post that President Trump asked: “Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?”
The President denies that he used such a derogatory term to describe these countries, saying: “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
And in classic Trump fashion, he managed to turn it around on the Democrats by saying: “The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process…”
And while ignorant Leftists come to the defense of Haiti and the aforementioned countries, they manage to, in a sense, destroy a liberal argument: “these immigrants should be here because the countries they come from are very bad and dangerous.”
Stephen Colbert defended these countries by saying “They’re not s**hole countries… Donald Trump isn’t their president.” Insinuating that the United States is a s**thole because Trump IS our president.
If they indeed are not s**holes, then it should be ok to send these people back, right? Why would anyone be opposed to sending these great people back home if those countries are far better than ours? Shouldn’t we be merciful and compassionate people and help these immigrants return home?
Whether or not Trump used that word to describe these countries hardly matters. The meaning behind the reported comment is truthful: these countries are horrible.
According to World Atlas, Colombia is the 7th most dangerous country in the world. Sudan is 6th, Nigeria 5th, Congo 2nd and the Central African Republic is the most dangerous country in the world.
According to the UK Independent, Jamaica is the 18th most dangerous country in the world. South Africa immediately follows it at number 17, Guatemala at 16, Chad at 15, Mali at 13, Honduras at 9, Kenya at 8, Egypt at 7, Venezuela (Bernie’s favorite country) at 6, Nigeria at 5, El Salvador (well, look at that) at 3 and Colombia at number 1.
Many other sources often name the same countries, albeit in a different position. HIV/AIDS cases are the worst in many of these countries but that’s just one of their many problems.
If you don’t think those countries are s**holes, you don’t have a functioning brain.
Meanwhile, Trump is also reported to have insisted we take more immigrants from places like Norway. According to World Atlas, Norway ranks 14th among the world’s SAFEST countries.
Now, even though Trump says that he never said anything derogatory about those countries, the comment was still not racist in any way.
He reportedly said the COUNTRIES are s**holes, not the people. And the stats do indeed show that the countries are, in fact, s**holes.
It makes no sense to defend them because to defend them means to lie about them. But the funny thing is that they’re only now defending them simply because of what Trump reportedly said.
Jason Cone, USA executive director of Doctors Without Borders, said earlier this week: “The US is sending Salvadorans back to one of the most violent places in the world, and putting them at risk of death”.
If a country is considered one of the most violent places on Earth and puts its own people at risk of death by just being there, then it’s a s**hole country.
If a country is totalitarian and its people often try to escape via raft (I’m, of course, talking about Cuba), then that’s a s**hole country.
If a country is so poor that its people are forced to eat their own pets just so they don’t starve to death, then it’s a s**hole country.
Truth be told, most other countries on Earth are total s**holes. And unfortunately, some countries are beginning to turn into s**holes themselves. The massive refugee “crisis” threatens to turn the U.K, Germany, France and other European countries (or really any country that takes in these “refugees”) into Muslim s**holes. And yes, many Muslim countries are among the most dangerous countries in the world in the very sources I used earlier in the article.
I didn’t want to have to use that bad word so much, but even CNN is unapologetic about using the word. One host even wrote the word to describe who Trump is. He even attacks the President for reportedly having used the word.
Funny how he forgets that Joe Biden once said that Obamacare was a “big f**ing deal”. The Democrats even sold a t-shirt with the abbreviation for that description: “Health Reform is a BFD”.
It’s also funny how he forgets Dick Cheney once told Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy to “go f**k yourself.”
Or that Barack Obama used many, and I mean MANY expletives in his book: Dreams From My Father.
No, since it’s Trump, it’s only bad if HE says it. And it’s not even confirmed that he actually said it, at that. Multiple “celebrities” went on twitter to attack the President, many of whom used the very same word to describe him.
Funny how they all think Trump’s a s**hole, but still likely think very highly of Meryl Streep’s “God”: Harvey Weinstein. You can add Hollywood to the list of s**tholes in the world. I won’t throw all of California under that description since it’s really just the coastal cities that are garbage. There were a good number of counties in California that voted for Trump in 2016, so I won’t attack the whole state, even though its Governor is complete Leftist garbage.
Regardless, all of these places are actual s**holes that I would never dream setting foot on. I’ve lived in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. I was too young to properly remember Argentina and Brazil, but I remember Mexico pretty well. While the area I lived in wasn’t a complete s**hole (Mexico City), it is when you compare it to the places I’ve lived in in the States… except maybe Portland, Oregon.
Maybe they’re on par. Although, it’s important to establish that not every single place in those cities is awful. Downtown Portland is a complete garbage-fest (I’ve grown tired of using the same bad word over and over again), but the rest of the city wasn’t really bad. Downtown Portland is where the freaks are, but the rest of the city isn’t too bad. Liberal, sure, but not too bad.
But while I can stand living in such a place, I would never dream of travelling to any of the aforementioned dangerous nations. I might be interested in places like Norway now, but I would never go to South America again, except maybe Chile, the only South American country in World Atlas’ top 25 safest countries on Earth, even though it sits at number 24. Even the U.S. is not on that list, largely due to Obama and the Democrats.
Still, I end with my main point: the countries mentioned in the immigration meeting with lawmakers, with the exception of Norway, are total s**holes.
And even though the MSM won’t feel sorry whatsoever for using the word, I will apologize for using it myself, especially to the extent that I did. Not that I never curse, it’s just that it doesn’t feel right to curse this much.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!”
When Donald Trump was elected, there were a good few of us hoping that, with the help of Republican Congressmen and women, we’d be able to Make America Great Again. This past year has been a demonstration of just how much the Republican Establishment is against the American people and just how much they’d rather maintain their status quo of submitting to the Democrats rather than working hard to beat them.
But one Republican Senator has shown that he’s tired of the constant attacks by the Left. He’s tired of the constant smear campaign the Left runs and the constant deceitful tactics they employ. Tactics such as, specifically, “Republicans only want to help the rich, not everyone else.”
That Republican Senator is Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). According to RealClearPolitics, Hatch “admonished Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) for accusing Republicans of writing the tax bill ‘for the rich’ at a late night hearing on amendments and markups.”
Brown said to Hatch: “With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer.”
Hatch responded with: “I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin’ career for people who don’t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I’m doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I think you guys overplay all the time, and it gets old. And frankly, you ought to quit it.”
Mighty powerful stuff from an elected Republican Senator. But he’s not done. He continued with: “What you said was not right (referring to Brown’s claim that the tax cut will benefit the rich). I come from the lower-middle class, originally. We didn’t have anything. So don’t spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that crap. Let me just say something. If we worked together, we could pull this country out of every mess it is in. We could do a lot of the things that you are talking about, too. I think I have had a reputation for working together. I like you very much personally, but this bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while. And then to do it right at the end of this is just not right.”
Bravo! Way to stand up to the Democrats! And for once, I don’t mean this sarcastically!
Do you have any idea how long people have been hoping Republicans in Congress would do something like this? Putting Democrat liars in their place? Pushing back against the false notion that Republicans’ only intentions are to help the rich get richer?
What Brown said was entirely wrong. The bill doesn’t help the rich all that much. It helps to a certain extent, but they’ll still be paying almost all of the tax revenue the federal government receives. And yet, the Left makes it their mission to deceive the public into believing every single Republican effort when it comes to taxes will benefit the rich and only the rich.
In reality, the Democrat Party has been the most Wall-Street-friendly party in politics. On the outside, they claim that rich people should pay “their fair share”, but ensure that their friends get tax breaks or the ability to avoid paying taxes.
When was the last time Al Sharpton paid taxes? He’s been a tax evader for many many years now, but he’s still not just walking free, but also out in public claiming every white person is racist just because they’re white and that black people are always the victims of police brutality. That criminals who end up getting shot are sweet angels helping their communities.
But returning to taxes, we conservatives have had to endure a relentless assault coming from the Left without seeing much Republican push-back. Hey, forget taxes, THAT HAPPENS WITH ALMOST EVERY ISSUE!
The Democrats lie about an issue and Republicans make no noticeable effort to push back against their outrageous claims. On some issues, the GOP even SIDES with the Democrats. Take Roy Moore, for example. He’s been accused of things that haven’t been proven, but the Republicans were the first to demand he quit the race and resign should he win (even planning on expelling him from Senate).
Now take Al Franken. He’s a well-documented SEX OFFENDER and the most Republicans demand of him is that there be an “investigation”. An investigation that will likely take years to resolve and will amount to exactly nothing. No calls for his resignation coming from his political opponents. At most, I’ve seen ONE (ironically, Democrat) Senator calling for him to resign. Sen. Rebecca Otto (D-MN) called for him to resign, but she’s the only person I’ve seen call for it.
Moore has everyone in the Establishment calling for him to quit the race vs. one Dem senator calling for Franken to do the right thing.
President Trump hopes Congress will pass tax reform by the end of this year, and so far, I can see at least one Republican seemingly looking to do that.
Looking at Hatch’s voting record, he’s voted solidly conservative for a while now, even during the Obama era and especially during the Trump era. He’s voted to repeal Obamacare every time it’s come up this year. And seemingly, he’s looking to pass tax reform when that issue comes to the Senate.
I just wish every Republican pushed back against the Left like Hatch did. I wish every Republican would vote like Hatch has been.
Earlier, he said “if we worked together, we could pull this country out of every mess it is in.” And that’s right. If Republicans and Democrats worked together, they COULD do that. But Democrats don’t want that. Beyond that, enough Republicans don’t even want that.
When he said that, he meant working through bipartisanship. But that doesn’t even need to happen. Republicans own the majority in Congress. THEY DON’T HAVE TO WORK WITH DEMOCRATS TO PULL THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THESE MESSES! Messes, I’ll remind you, that were created by the Democrats.
If Republicans wanted to work together, Obamacare would’ve been repealed and replaced MONTHS ago, tax reform would’ve been taken care of and we’d be in a far better position to Make America Great Again than we are. Alas, the GOP doesn’t want to Make America Great Again. The Democrats certainly don’t want to Make America Great Again. They’re the REASON why we’re trying to Make America Great Again.
I don’t expect Senate Republicans to do the right thing and pass tax reform (I’m honestly hoping they’ll surprise me), but regardless of the result, I say “kudos” to Hatch for actually (though, not literally) showing that he does indeed have male genitalia.
Here’s hoping and praying the GOP doesn’t give me yet another reason to absolutely hate their guts.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
In the latter half of 2017, countless accusations against powerful people have come out, with some being utter b.s. *ahem* Moore *ahem* Trump *ahem*, while others are earth-shattering, such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, George Takei and others.
Most recently, another accusation was made, this time about yet another Democrat: Sen. Al Franken. And not only is this just an accusation, there’s also tangible proof of the act.
As you can see from the picture above, Al Franken is seen groping a woman by the name of Leeann Tweeden, who is clearly asleep.
There’s more. Leeann also wrote a story on her local radio station’s website “790 KABC”, for which she works. The story is titled: “Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It.”
Without seeing the picture, you might be confused as to why she mentions that last part, about it not being funny. Of course it’s not funny. Sexual assault isn’t funny… well, to the normal person.
As you can see, Al Franken is not only groping her breasts, but he’s also smiling at the camera, as though to say “Yeah, I know what I’m doing and I don’t really care.”
Leeann gives us the context to the situation. She begins with: “In December of 2006, I embarked on my ninth USO Tour to entertain our troops, my eighth to the Middle East since the 9/11 attacks… Also on the trip were country music artists Darryl Worley, Mark Wills, Keni Thomas, and some cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys. The headliner was comedian and now-senator, Al Franken. Franken had written some skits for the show… Like many USO shows before and since, the skits were full of sexual innuendo geared toward a young, male audience…”
“Franken said he had written a part for me that he thought would be funny… When I saw the script, Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a ‘kiss’. I suspected what he was after, but I figured I could turn my head at the last minute, or put my hand over his mouth, to get more laughs from the crowd.”
She then writes that Franken insisted that they rehearse the “kiss”. Not once, but multiple times. He continued to badger her to rehearse the scene and she began to feel uncomfortable. Eventually, she said “ok”.
According to Leeann: “We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth… I felt disgusted and violated.”
Yeah, I bet. For someone of his caliber to force himself on anyone is a disgusting thought.
She then details that after the incident, she decided against telling the Sergeant Major of the Army, the person who sponsored the tour. She decided against telling anyone of importance. According to her, she did tell “a few others on the tour”, but it’s unlikely that they were anyone of importance. Just people who were there for her when she needed them.
Leeann then writes that after the incident, she avoided Franken as much as she could. No one can blame her… well, except Franken, I guess. According to Leeann, Franken “repaid me with petty insults, including drawing devil horns on at least one of the headshots I was autographing for the troops. But he didn’t stop there.”
When the tour was over and they were heading back to the U.S., “After 2 weeks of grueling travel and performing I was exhausted. When our C-17 cargo plane took off from Afghanistan I immediately fell asleep, even though I was still wearing my flak vest and Kevlar helmet. It wasn’t until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of the photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one:…”
At this point, she shows the picture above.
“I couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, when I was asleep.”
She then writes that she wanted to scream out to the world what Franken had done to her, but that she was afraid at the time. Afraid of the potential backlash and damage done to her career as a broadcaster. But she also says that now, she’s no longer afraid. That she had debated in her mind whether or not to go public. Whether it’d be worth telling her story. That finally, she decided it WAS worth it.
Now, why did I title this article “Why Democrats Will Never Hold The Moral High Ground On Anything”? Because I believe that one of the reasons the Left is throwing Bill Clinton under the bus is because they want the moral high ground when it comes to accusing conservatives such as Roy Moore of sexual assault.
The Left believes that if they apologize for excusing Bill’s behavior, they will be rectified and be free to accuse conservatives of this stuff without the constant reminder that they were ok with Bill doing his intern.
But it’s stories like these the reason as to why they will never hold the moral high ground on anything. They have set up a new rule of “always believing the women accusing men of sexual assault.” The Left can’t go back on that after doubling down on it against Moore. They would have to either abandon Al Franken or be called hypocrites again for defending him.
I honestly don’t think they’d do the latter, because there’s clear photographic evidence of his misdeeds, not just an accusation.
But even if they do abandon Franken, their problem doesn’t end there. At the beginning of the article, I mentioned the likes of Weinstein, Takei, Spacey, and such. Of course, that’s a small percentage of Leftists who have been accused of sexual assault.
Do you wanna know why the Democrats will never hold the moral high ground on anything? BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MORAL GROUND TO COVER! Morality is a total joke to them. Or at least something for them to mold to their liking.
The fact that they WANT full-grown men to have the right to enter women’s restrooms shows you what kind of morals they have. The fact that they WANT women to have the right to kill their own unborn children in the name of “healthcare” shows you what kind of morals they have. The fact that Hollywood makes movie after movie depicting a woman being a sex object and nothing else shows you what kind of morals they have. The fact that the Hollywood men such women work with are likely to ASSAULT THEM sexually and try to keep it a secret shows you what kind of morals they have.
They have no morals. That’s just what happens when you not only shut Christ out of your life, but you also make fun of Him and His followers. Morality, conscience, much like everything else in this world, comes from God.
Evil, sin, these things come from Satan. A fallen angel without morals. Without a sense of decency. Democrats are much like him.
Look at today’s society. It’s the direct result of Democrat brainwashing children in schools and people using t.v., or other entertainment media.
Look at any show on Netflix’s or Hulu’s lineup and I dare you to find one righteous show. One show where the characters don’t talk about sex half the time. One show where they show a family going to church, praying and worshipping the Lord.
The closest thing I can think of a “righteous” show is “Blue Bloods”, but even that show has been going less and less Christian. In a show about a family of Catholic police officers in New York City, you’d expect them to be shown praying (something which they have done a maximum number of once in the latest season) and thanking the Lord not just for the food they are about to eat, but for keeping them safe in one of the most dangerous cities in the country.
My point is that today’s society is not very morally sound. A good character is attacked while evil is appreciated to near levels of worship.
The Democrats will never hold the moral high ground on anything because they’re too evil and wicked to hold something like that over anyone else. And when I say “Democrats” I of course mean all of the Left. I include Establishment Republicans as well because they’re no better.
The only time Evil will hold the moral high ground will be during Armageddon. During the fulfilment of the prophecies in the Book of Revelation. And that’s only because by that point, Christians will no longer be on Earth. They will be in Heaven. Earth will be populated by these kinds of people.
Democrats will never hold the moral high ground because God and God alone occupies it. And no one can ever take that away from Him.
“’Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear not the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their revilings. For the moth will eat them up like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool; but my righteousness will be forever, and my salvation to all generations.”
Over this past week or so, I’ve gone back and forth calling the Left either sick or amusing. That’s because, while most of the time they’re sick, there are times when they’re simply amusing. How they react to certain things such as shootings and terror attacks have been the main focus whenever I talk about them being amusing. Well, these Democrat victories in Virginia, New Jersey and New York are just as amusing.
“How is it amusing if Democrats win elections?”, you may be wondering. Well, consider what elections they’ve won. Democrats won in Virginia, New Jersey and New York in 2016. They won again this year... what a shocker.
And the amusing part is that they’re pretending this is a major victory. One writer in the New York Times titled his article: “Virginia Rejects Your Hateful Politics, Mr. Trump.”
The article begins: “Ralph Northam’s election as Virginia governor amid reportedly high turnout on Tuesday is a stinging and welcome rebuke to President Trump and white nationalism.”
Ok, what’s white nationalism got to do with anything here? This person is simply trying to use the typical Leftist tactic of tying a Republican with something they deem as “bad”. Regardless, this is honestly an intriguing and amusing article.
The article continues: “Having been nearly vanquished in the primary by Corey Stewart, an anti-immigrant conspiracy theorist who played on issues like preserving Confederate monuments, Mr. Gillespie (the loser of the gubernatorial election), at the advice of Republican leaders, took up race-baiting. His ads, featuring menacing tattooed men, accused Mr. Northam of being ‘weak on MS-13’ the gang formed by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles that now threatens Virginia suburbs…”
So they’re accusing Gillespie of race-baiting? Sure! It’s not like Democrats don’t play the race card whenever they deem it advantageous!
What? The Democrats ran an ad that featured a menacing-looking, black pick-up truck with a Confederate flag in the back and with a Gillespie bumper-sticker that appears to be hunting down and attempting to run over Hispanic children? Well… uhh… what does that have to do with race-baiting?
Honestly, it’s like the Left sometimes ANNOUNCES their hypocrisy.
But do you want to know what else is funny? Even the writer slams the Democrat victor to an extent. At one point, the article says: “Mr. Northam was a lackluster campaigner in his own right. Despite mountains of post-2016 evidence that Democrats need to present voters with an inclusive and compelling economic message, he didn’t hone his own until late in the race. Then, he lost support from the progressive wing of his party after he seemed to suggest he’d oppose sanctuary cities and, at the request of unions, omitted Justin Fairfax, his African-American running mate in the lieutenant governor’s race, from the campaign pamphlets.”
Right, three things stand out here: that “inclusive and compelling economic message” part, the part about Northam supposedly opposing sanctuary cities, and that racist act of omitting the African-American running-mate from the pamphlets. Let’s go over each one.
First, the “inclusive and compelling economic message”. Right, what exactly would that entail? An economy that works for everyone? That’s what a capitalist economy is for. That’s what we have. Everyone that has the drive to work and work very hard can become successful. Those who don’t want to do anything are the ones who are not successful. Not even in a socialist economy.
Next, the supposed “opposing sanctuary cities” part. This one is actually pretty interesting. You see, Gillespie ran “an ad that claimed Northam cast a deciding vote on Feb. 22 in favor of sanctuary cities”, according to the Daily Signal. However, Mark Krikorian said that Northam’s stance on immigration changed after that ad: “[Since] Gillespie’s ads criticizing MS-13 and sanctuary cities, Northam has now flipped and said that if some city did declare it a sanctuary, he would act to stop it if he were governor.”
Of course, this is just one guy talking. I mean, who even is this guy, anyway? Mark Krikorian, according to the Daily Signal, is an “executive director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a nonpartisan immigration research organization.”
Right, that’s fine and dandy, but just because this guy says something doesn’t make it true… unless Northam himself confirms it. You see, according to the Richmond-Times Dispatch: “In an interview… with the Norfolk TV station WAVY, Northam said for the first time that, under certain circumstances, he would sign a bill similar to the one he voted against this year, a vote that spawned a wave of ominous ads from the Gillespie campaign linking Northam to the Latino gang MS-13. ‘If that bill comes to my desk… I sure will. I’ve always been opposed to sanctuary cities. He knows that,’ Northam said of Gillespie…”
Well, that changes things. That makes me somewhat more ok with the Democrat’s victory… if he sticks to those beliefs, that is. And since what he said makes me somewhat happier, that can only make the Left somewhat less happy. I guess that’s equivalent exchange for you. My happiness about his victory rose after finding this out, and the Left’s happiness somewhat must’ve declined.
Don’t get me wrong, he’s still a Democrat and he’ll likely still vote according to what his Democrat overlords want done in Virginia. But still, this at least puts somewhat of a smile on my face after Democrat victories.
Lastly: omitting his African-American running mate from the pamphlets. Need I say more?
Now, you’ve seen the title of this article. Why is it sad for Democrats to have won in Virginia, New Jersey and New York? Because they’re pretending this is a major victory and an indicator to how 2018 will go.
They’re acting the exact same way they would’ve acted if they had won in Georgia and Montana. They would write articles that say “State X rejects your hateful politics, Mr. Trump.”
Even the NYT article I’m talking about touts this victory as something more than it really is.
The article ends with: “Mr. Gillespie’s choice to lay his principles on the altar of Trumpism made Mr. Northam’s win doubly important, as a triumph over the politics of racial division, and as a lesson for other Republicans tempted to adopt Mr. Trump’s vile tactics as their own.”
Right, of course this guy’s gonna say something like that. This Democrat win is a shocker to exactly no one. Virginia voted Democrat in 2016. They clearly didn’t learn their lesson and voted Democrat again this year. But it’s sad for them to pretend this expected victory is anything more than it really is.
A Democrat won in New Jersey - who didn’t see that coming? De Blassio was reelected as mayor of New York City - what a surprise. Virginia voted for a Democrat - I’m so shocked.
Let’s not forget that these states have been true-blue for ages. And let’s not forget REPUBLICANS WON IN GEORGIA AND MONTANA - two states where the Democrats expected landslide victories, but were absolutely destroyed in the results.
Let them believe this small victory will lead to anything more. And let them believe that this small victory should be a warning to other Republicans. The guy says this is a “lesson for other Republicans tempted to adopt Mr. Trump’s vile tactics as their own”. Vile tactics, you say? You mean how he partially funded a fake Russian dossier about his opponent… oh, wait, that was Hillary. Or maybe when he paid women to accuse his opponent of sexual harassment and assault… oh, wait, Hillary again. Oh! How about when he paid for the answers to debate questions? No, wait, that was also Hillary.
But I see what this person is writing about. He’s trying to get Republicans to not adopt Trump’s agenda and policies as their own. Hmmm, I wonder why that is. Maybe because HIS AGENDA AND POLICIES ARE VASTLY POPULAR WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY AND WOULD LEAD TO MOST REPUBLICANS WINNING IN MOST STATES?!
Regardless, the Democrats can have their small celebration. Their small victories. Meanwhile, the rest of the country will continue to vote for people who will passionately seek to Make America Great Again.
“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.”
Whenever a shooting occurs, people tend to focus on being sympathetic towards the victims and their families… unless they’re Republicans, I guess.
Now, I don’t know whether the victims of the shooting were Republicans and Trump supporters, but that really doesn’t matter. However, to one particular Leftist woman, the fact that they may have been Republicans means that she has no sympathy over their deaths whatsoever.
According to the Daily Caller: “A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold said she ‘is not even sympathetic’ for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival…” Hayley had said: “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered, I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic because country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
Wow, what a special lady, huh? Now, she clearly references Sandy Hook here... or maybe she references the 58 million dead babies since Roe v. Wade. Ah, wait. Nope, hold on. She's a Leftist. Right. They don't show remorse about THOSE dead children, do they? Forgot.
And she says that taking guns away from people is “the right thing”. There’s not a single law that could’ve prevented what happened in Vegas. There’s not a single law that would’ve prevented Paddock from killing 59 and injuring over 500 others. Know why? BECAUSE IT’S ALREADY ILLEGAL TO DO EVERYTHING HE DID!
You can’t own an automatic weapon in this country. According to reports, the weapon he used was converted to fully auto, but guess what? THAT’S ILLEGAL TOO! Purchasing/owning a fully automatic weapon is entirely ILLEGAL for civilians. There already are gun control laws about the weapons he used, and yet, he massacred 59 people and wounded 500 more.
But that’s not the topic of this particular article. I’ve already written an article explaining why it doesn’t make sense to attack the 2nd amendment, and I’ve already explained my points thoroughly in that article. The topic of this article is the insensitivity, bigotry and hatred of the Left. This woman feels absolutely nothing for the victims of the shooting, but only as long as they are assumed Trump supporters.
No doubt she’d be crying if the victims were Democrats. But since there is a chance that there was a mixed political crowd, no doubt she would only cry for the Democrats slaughtered there, and not shed a single tear over the Republican deaths.
This is simply more identity politics, only in a twisted way. This particular Leftist’s message is: don’t cry for the deaths of Trump supporters, for they are your enemy. No doubt she was sad about the terror attack in an Orlando night club, since the victims were gay people. But if the victims are her political enemies? Forget about it. Not a single tear shed for them.
Leftists don’t feel sympathy for Right-wingers. I even saw one Twitter user (whose identity will remain private for their safety) tweeting: “I honestly want every single Trump supporter dead. This isn’t a tweet for attention. If you support Trump, I want you 6 feet in the ground.” Gee, love you too, friend.
But this is what I’m talking about. Could you imagine if any conservative person said that of Leftists? The FBI would storm into their home in a heartbeat! This person clearly has no sympathy for the victims of the Vegas shooting either, since they just so happened to have tweeted that the day after the shooting.
The Left is inherently evil and sick. They want evil things to happen to people they disagree with and pretend as though they are in the right. They pretend they are sympathetic and open-minded about everyone, when they’re not. They are close-minded bigots. If you disagree with them in any way, you become less than a person to them immediately.
If it’s confirmed that Trump supporters were, indeed, targeted at the Vegas shooting, one of two things will happen: 1) either the media will immediately stop talking about it, or simply slow down the talks about it, or 2) they will blame it all on Trump and supporters for “getting themselves killed”.
I’ve already seen Jimmy Kimmel blame Trump and Republicans for this. In his show, Kimmel said: “they should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.” So he’s already blaming Trump, and he definitely won’t be the last one to do so. They don’t blame Islamic terrorism when a terrorist attack happens, but they blame the NRA and Republicans when a shooter (who is almost always a Democrat) kills people.
They want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens when someone that will not obey the law breaks it. They miss the common sense point that if a bad guy wants to get a gun HE WILL GET ONE NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT! There is such a thing as the black market. There is such a thing as BREAKING THE LAW TO GET THINGS THAT ARE ILLEGAL! It’s the same principle as a drug addict: if a drug addict wants to get a drug, he will get one, no matter what.
They pretend to have compassion when they wholly lack it. Kimmel actually cried when he gave the message that he wanted people’s guns taken away. He pretended he had any sort of compassion within him, but the message he gave out would cause only more deaths and heart-break in this country.
AEI (American Enterprise Institute), a “conservative think tank” as described by Google, published an article about the number of homicides occurred by guns from 1993 to 2013 and the number of gun ownership in that same timespan.
The article shows that Gun Homicide Rate has gone down 49% in that 20 year timespan, and that gun ownership has gone up by 56% in that same timespan. They explain that an increase in gun ownership seems to be correlated to the decrease in homicide rate using a firearm. They also explain the fact that “the number of privately owned firearms in U.S. increased from about 185 million in 1993 to 357 million in 2013.”
This means that if more people have guns, the less likely people will try to kill someone else with a gun. That won’t stop them completely, but it’s clear that if there are more people with guns out there, bad people will be more hesitant to try and kill people. Because it doesn’t make sense to try to mass murder people who are likely armed themselves.
So it’s safer for people to own guns than for them to be taken away, and yet, Jimmy Kimmel and the Left want guns to be taken away from people? That’s, factually and realistically speaking, very insensitive and devoid of any sort of compassion for your fellow man.
But alas, the Left doesn’t run on facts. They run solely on emotion. “One bad person killed people with an illegal gun, so guns should be illegal!” “The world is on fire, so we have to pass laws and regulations that screw businesses to keep the world from getting too hot or too cold, we haven’t decided yet.”
For all the emotion the Left uses to drive its agenda, they sure are devoid of any of it when it comes to the deaths of their opposition.
“’But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you’”
Gee, you think? The Mainstream Media paints a false portrait of Trump’s image for America. They think that nearly everyone and their grandmothers hate Trump and are progressive. In reality, however, many people love Trump (over 60 million people, I might add) and are not progressive socialists. They may not all be super conservative, but they have all seen what “progressivism” has done to the country in the 8 years of Obama and they don’t like it.
The Hill published an article on September 29th, talking about how all the negative attacks on Trump might not be a good strategy, particularly for the 2018 mid-term elections. “Dem addiction to Trump attacks gives party cause for concern” is the title for the article. The article begins: “Democrats are linking Republican gubernatorial candidates to President Trump in New Jersey and Virginia, two states won by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election where the attacks could drive base voters to the polls.”
“But some Democrats are concerned about their party’s strategy. Even if Democrats win the two contests, they say it could give the party a false sense of confidence that attacking Trump is the best way to win the House and Senate in 2018”. Right, and here’s the thing: linking Republican candidates to Trump can only work in a certain few places. Yes, this could work in New Jersey and maybe even Virginia, but this certainly won’t work everywhere else, and it seems as though people are beginning to notice.
And what are they noticing? That Trump is popular and well-liked by many, many people. I know, that’s completely crazy if you’re a Leftist. That very thought is insane, but it’s the truth. It’s as true today as it was throughout 2016, before and after the election.
So when I see the Left linking candidates to Trump, to me, that’s a good thing. Now, not everyone they’re linking to Trump is legitimately going to be a conservative or pro-Trump guy. But when I see them using that particular strategy, it gets me to want to look into those people to see if they truly would want to Make America Great Again and if they could work alongside the President to reach that end.
But the article is entirely right in the concept that, even if the Democrat candidates win in those states, it would give them a false sense of confidence for the mid-term elections. Every single time this past year that there’s been a special election, the MSM’s narrative would be “If the Republican guy loses, it means that Trump has lost support and the Democrats are on a fast track to winning back Congress in 2018.” And when Democrats end up losing, their narrative “switches” to “this election meant nothing, but since the difference was barely double digits, it means that Trump is losing support and Democrats are on a fast track to winning back Congress in 2018.”
They refuse to believe that Trump is well-liked. Now, Virginia is technically part of the South, which is very much pro-Trump, so I’m not entirely sure that the Democrat candidate is THAT likely to win there. But New Jersey is largely liberal, and their outgoing governor (who endorsed Trump) was wildly unpopular in his state. So I wouldn’t be too surprised if the Democrat candidate wins in New Jersey.
But the fact remains that the media will make that potential victory a far bigger deal than it really would be. And if the Republican guy wins, they would make HIS victory a far lesser deal than it really would be. But still, the Left, if the Democrats win, would falsely believe that Trump is losing support at an ugly pace and that Congress is theirs in 2018. Reality, however, is very different.
We The People voted for and elected Donald Trump to the White House in 2016. Since then, Congress has been nothing but useless to help Make America Great Again, because they DON’T want to Make America Great Again. They want to make America THEIRS again. They want to Make America THE GOVERNMENT’S Again. And We The People completely abhor that idea. We The People will be looking to elect anti-establishment, conservative, pro-America and pro-Trump people to Congress.
We The People want Congress to help Trump Make America Great Again by passing legislation that would immediately begin construction for the Wall, repeal Obamacare and generally do things we wanted them to do for Trump’s first 2 years in office.
So when I see the MSM writing articles that say “Democrats attacking Trump all the time might be a bad idea”, I just have to roll my eyes and say: “Duh!”
Among the reasons they state that Clinton lost to Trump was because her campaign focused too much on being negative against him. Well, can you blame them? CLINTON WAS AN INSANELY FLAWED CANDIDATE! She was (and still is) viewed as a crook. SHE STILL IS ONE! She was viewed as someone you wouldn’t trust to take care of your PENCIL, let alone the country. Her campaign focused on being negative towards Trump because THEY SIMPLY HAD NOTHING TO WORK WITH TO BE POSITIVE ABOUT HER!
The only thing she had going for herself (and was basically her only selling point to people) is that she’s a woman. And if elected, she would be the first woman president. But that alone isn’t enough to win elections, and she was good for nothing else, so she had to continuously attack her opponent because there was nothing good about her to sell to people.
But that’s merely ONE of the MANY reasons she lost. She also lost because people were getting frustrated and tired of seeing their country be reduced to an ever-apologizing joke of a country in front of the world. Because they were tired of seeing their country be less than it possibly could be. They wanted to see America prosper, but no Democrat wants to do that.
Trump is working his butt off to Make America Great Again and people love that about him. So when Democrats try to attack him, his support grows, rather than diminish. When they say that he’s a failure because he couldn’t pass significant legislation in his first year so far, we come to his aide to point out that it’s CONGRESS’ fault for not helping HIM!
And wanna know what? His support has only INCREASED since he took office. I remember Mark Levin being an anti-Trump person during the campaign, but he’s since realized his mistake and realized that Trump is entirely dedicated to Making America Great Again. So Trump has gained the support of former “Never Trumpers” like Mark Levin, who also happens to be a patriot. There are many more patriots that have since began to support Trump after seeing the great things he’s done for this country without the help or support of Congress.
And I’m sure they will look to vote for people that will help the President to improve the country at a far faster rate. So of course attacking Trump unceasingly would harm the Democrat party. They aren’t attacking an unpopular president. On contraire, they are attacking a VERY POPULAR President. That being said, I do hope they continue attacking Trump. If it harms them to no end, I say let them do as they please.
The Left continues to lose support and Trump continues to gain it. If Democrats think they can win by simply being against Trump, then fine. Let them think that. The results will only prove them wrong.
“The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
