Recently, it seems as though a firestorm has been occurring in the country and seems as though most of America thought Trump did a poor or horrendous job in Helsinki some days ago in a meeting with Putin.
However, as usual, that seeming outrage across the country is anything but.
A new Axios/Survey Monkey poll (not necessarily an MSM source, but they are Millennials) shows that, of 2,100 total adults surveyed, 58% disapproved of “the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin”, with 40% approving.
Yes, that is a massive gap, but here’s the thing: 79% of Republicans say they APPROVED of Trump’s handling of Putin while 91% of Democrats and 68% of Independents disapproved. When it comes to Democrats, if it involves Trump unless he’s not specifically mentioned, they disapprove of his job. The Independent number is the only one that is remotely concerning, but not for the long-term, as this will easily blow over in a week or so and the country will get back to focusing on great jobs numbers, the booming economy, and all the other things that make the touted Blue Wave evaporate into mist.
The poll then goes on to talk about Russia in general, as well as Russian interference.
“Americans are split on whether the allegations of Russian interference are a serious issue (50%) or a distraction (47%). This breaks cleanly along party lines, with 85 percent of Republicans seeing it as a distraction and 85 percent of Democrats seeing it as a serious issue. Among Independents, 56 percent see it as a serious issue.”
As I sometimes do, I myself shall answer this poll question. I align myself with the 85% of Republicans who see this is as a distraction. Why? Because that’s precisely what it is. That’s precisely what the Mueller investigation is: a distraction. A distraction from the collusion that happened between the Clinton campaign and Obama DOJ. A distraction from the fact that there WAS collusion in the elections between a major political party and what was supposed to be an unbiased branch of government to rig an election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
A distraction from the fact that there was more illegal immigrant interference in the election than Russian interference. That there were more votes for Hillary than were counted in Michigan. That there was voter fraud taking place wherever the Left saw fit to do it without getting caught.
Regardless, Axios continues: “More than half of Americans (55%) don’t trust the Trump administration to take steps to prevent foreign interference in November’s midterms.”
Of course, I would say that I do trust the Trump administration to ensure this. What I don’t trust is the Democrats taking steps from preventing illegal immigrant foreign interference in November’s midterms, particularly in San Francisco.
Now, the interesting thing is that Gallup also had a poll recently (granted, taken before the July 16 press conference) which shows statistically no one cares about the “Situation with Russia”.
In the poll, when asked “what do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?”, people responded with illegal immigration, dissatisfaction with the government, racism, unifying the country and lack of respect for others as the top 5. The topic “Situation with Russia” received an asterisk next to it, signifying that not enough poll-takers chose that answer to statistically determine its importance.
Now, again, this was before the press conference, but considering everything else going on right now, as well as the fact that it’s mostly the media, the deep state and a slew of Never Trumpers who are against Trump on this, I would say that perhaps there would be a shift of 2 or 3% of people caring. The media, as I’ve shared before, is largely untrusted and the deep state and Never Trumpers have always had it out for Trump, so it’s not surprising.
With all of this said, I don’t blame anyone for believing Trump is not strong with Putin. Without the evidence to show us that he is, anyone can believe that Trump is dealing with Putin in the same way that Obama and George W. Bush did.
However, it is always important to know the facts.
Breitbart News provides a list of 7 ways Trump has been tough on Russia since his presidency began.
First, they mention the sanctions made against Russia.
“The Trump administration imposed several rounds of tough sanctions against Russian individuals and entities over the past two years. The sanctions announced in March and June of 2018 were explicitly in response to Russian cyberwarfare, which somewhat perplexed media organizations comfortable with the storyline that Trump does not care about hackers and had to be restrained by Congress from lifting every sanction against Russia.”
“Quite a few of the persons and operations targeted by Trump administration sanctions were directly linked to the 2016 ‘election meddling’ case. Others were sanctioned over Russia’s actions in Ukraine and Crimea, and for helping Iran and North Korea evade sanctions against them.”
Then, the article notes Russian diplomats and intelligence officers being expelled from the country.
“Another action Trump voiced reservations about but proceeded with anyway was the shuttering of the Russian consulate in Seattle in March, along with the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomatic personnel and intelligence officers.”
The article also mentions cybersecurity, with the Trump administration banning the use of software from Kaspersky Labs, a Russian cybersecurity giant back in December of 2017; enforcing arms control violations, meaning the Trump administration punishing Russian companies for helping the Kremlin create a cruise missile that violates Cold War arms control treaties; selling weapons to Ukraine to help them combat Russian aggression; enforcing the “red line” in Syria with his strike against Bashar Assad as punishment for his use of chemical weapons against his own people; and finally, Trump approving pre-summit indictments of the 12 Russians charged against meddling in the 2016 election.
Yes, the President was made aware of the charges before the summit, which isn’t really surprising, considering it’s his DOJ that is announcing the charges. Trust me, Trump doesn’t get to learn about this from “reading the newspaper” like a certain lying former commander-in-chief.
The Breitbart article goes into more detail, but it’s clear that, regardless of what Trump actually says about some of these things, or even about Putin and Russia themselves, Trump is actually pretty tough on Russia in his deeds.
At the end of the day, that is what ultimately matters. Results over rhetoric. And as I said before, I understand why Trump wants to appear like he’s buddy-buddy with Putin. He’s a deal-maker. He flatters people when he feels it’s necessary and is tough on people when actually necessary.
So at the end of the day, I completely understand why Republicans largely approve of Trump’s handling of the press conference while Democrats and Independents largely disapproved. I’m not saying that all of the Republicans were well-informed on Trump’s actions against Russia, but that serves as one explanation for a good number of them.
Not to mention that Trump is innumerably better than anything the Democrats or GOP Establishment offer in a presidential candidate.

Author: Freddie Marinelli.
In the age of Ocasio-Cortez seemingly being the face of the Democrat Party, established Party members are being left behind and if they do not do something soon, they will lose their Party and it will ultimately disappear, as I have said in pervious articles.
Here is where Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) comes in. Speaking to the New England Council during an event used to launch national campaigns, Warren said: “I am a capitalist to my bones.”
This is interesting because we have been seeing a trend toward open admittance of socialism in the Democrat Party. For one of its members, particularly Warren of all people, who is as far from capitalist as Bernie Sanders, is truly interesting.
Now, chances are that she will walk these comments back soon enough, but the fact remains that she is trying to position herself as at least more center-Left, ala Bill Clinton, than full-fledged Left. And this could be in response to the mere fact that people are walking away from the Democrat Party because they can no longer recognize it.
Do not misunderstand, she is as socialist as she ever was, but at least she is trying to put the mask back on. The problem is that, once the monster is revealed behind the mask, putting the mask back on does not matter at all.
In recent time, we’ve seen only escalation from the Democrat Party, not de-escalation. With people like Maxine Waters encouraging violence against Trump staffers and, subsequently, Trump supporters, people’s image of the Democrat Party has been deteriorating. Every time they call for either the impeachment of Donald Trump for the tiniest of things that trigger them, the American People see the Democrat Party as the socialist monsters that they are. And only now, after nearly TWO years of Trump’s presidency, are we seeing some form of course-correction from the Left.
Make no mistake, it’s not that Warren actually wants to go back center-Left. It’s that she may want the Democrat Party, or at least herself, to APPEAR center-Left. Deception has been their greatest weapon against Republicans, but they have abandoned it trying to match Trump’s “extremism”. But before Trump came along, the Democrats were happy to appear centrist while applying socialist policies.
Actually, that’s not entirely true. Bernie Sanders came out as an open socialist before Trump became President. And Obama accelerated the Party’s shift farther to the Left. But even still, people like Hillary Clinton were not quite ready to oust themselves as socialists, since socialism still has a negative connotation with most people.
But the rise of Bernie’s popularity and the emergence of Trump as a “hard-Right” President, they felt compelled to unmask themselves and openly admit to their socialist ideologies (not necessarily all of them, but enough to make socialism the Party’s main ideology).
However, despite their attempt at fighting strong capitalism with open socialism, Trump has not only remained popular with his base but has also GAINED popularity with approval numbers hitting the high 40s and low 50s on a good day.
Not only has he become more and more popular, but he’s also succeeded in many, MANY things he wanted to accomplish in his agenda. And it’s only been A YEAR AND A HALF!
Every attempt made against Trump has ultimately backfired on them and made them less popular. Sure, they’ve won a few elections here and there, most notably in Alabama, but their commitment to going completely bananas is and will backfire on them massively, particularly in a big election like the Midterms.
The threatening “Blue Wave” the Left had been touting at the beginning of the year has all but dissipated, even after arguing against Trump’s Helsinki meeting. And even with Ocasio-Cortez’s success over the incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley, there is not much hope for the Left in the midterms. The turnout was pretty small for the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is the socialist leader for the Democrat Party now.
Now, I know what you’re going to say. “It was just a primary election. They don’t usually get that much turnout.” I would agree with you if it weren’t for the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is a very open socialist in NEW YORK! If socialism is the Party’s future and people like Ocasio-Cortez are its future, you would think more people in her district would have been more excited to vote for her. According to the New York Post, of the 214,750 registered Democrat voters in Ocasio-Cortez’s district, only 27,744 voted. Ocasio-Cortez won by 4,000 votes.
Only 13% of registered Democrats in the district turned out to vote. In another Democrat race, only 9% of registered Democrats turned out to vote. In contrast, a GOP primary in the 11th Congressional District turned out 18% of the vote. Again, THIS IS NEW YORK!
People were not that excited for Ocasio-Cortez as a candidate in her PRIMARY! Of course, I fully expect more people to vote for her in the general election. That’s only logical. But there doesn’t seem to be too much excitement for her anyway. Let’s not forget that she seems to be like Hillary Clinton in that the more she speaks, the dumber she sounds, if her comments on Israel “invading” Palestine and low unemployment numbers being due to people having two jobs is anything to go by.
Since this is the direction the Democrat Party seems to be going, people like Elizabeth Warren might just be smart enough to realize that such open socialist ideologies that will destroy the fabric of society might not be such a good idea. And so, she claims to be a capitalist, despite knowing full well that she is anything but.
However, with such a claim comes backlash from her own supporters, with some on Twitter claiming to abandon their support for Warren after such comments (which is why I believe she will try to walk them back).
She has been one of the most socialist Senators in Congress for a long time, so she will never receive support from Right-leaning Independents and Republicans. These claims will now cause a rift between her and her base, which is full of mind-numbed socialists all the same. The result? An unpopular Senator who has no one to support her anymore except a few centrist Democrats who somehow might believe her claims.
But this is just talking about Warren. What about the rest of the Democrat Party? Well, I believe we are seeing a silent civil war. The young open socialists challenging the old establishment Democrats who know how to survive in politics. Again, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are smart enough to survive calls of stepping down. They will fight back against people like Ocasio-Cortez if they feel threatened by her, and I believe they do. Even Bernie Sanders, who seemingly has embraced the establishment since his endorsement of Clinton might be willing to fight back, given his willingness to not abolish ICE (don’t misunderstand, he simply wants to reform it, not protect it) and his doubling down on it.
At this point, I think some of the establishment Democrats are beginning to realize that in order to help their Party survive, they cannot allow such wild calls for full-fledged socialism. As I said, make no mistake. That is precisely what they want, but they do not feel they can accomplish that just yet. They want socialism but can’t afford to call it that quite yet, at least not a lot.
That is, in my mind, at least one explanation for Warren’s claims. Despite the fact that it’d be easier to prove she’s a Native American than a capitalist, the reasoning behind such a claim might be to help the Party survive, at least until Trump is out of the picture.
Sometime in the near future, I expect the Party to go full-fledged openly socialist. But the Democrat Establishment is set in their ways and does not want to be replaced. They ensured that in the DNC primaries. They might ensure it here. The biggest and most significant difference is that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is no longer the head of the DNC. Keith Ellison, the man PROMOTING Ocasio-Cortez, is.
This is why I believe it might be a toss-up between the Party trying to centralize themselves at least in speech and the Party committing to its eventual self-destruction.
Where do I, as a Christian, conservative and Trump supporter, stand? I’m not quite sure. I’m conflicted about all of this. On the one hand, I want to see the Democrat Party completely implode, but on the other, such a thing could lead to a one-party system of government. Even if that party is the GOP, I would not want a one-party system.
Of course, nothing is ever quite so simple. There would be a lot of factors and variables in place that would have to be calculated to fully know whether the Democrat Party would completely collapse if they went full-on socialist. In my understanding, there are not enough people in America to want socialism, which is why I doubt they would ultimately win big elections, but I could be wrong.
And in my understanding, even if they were to win elections and run the country, they would be so destructive that no one would ever want another socialist in power ever again, or at least for a few generations.
I don’t say that the things socialist want would destroy the fabric of society for no reason. I have said multiple times and explained it thoroughly that the things they want would ultimately destroy society. They can’t realistically implement everything they want, but even what they can implement would cause havoc.
The implementation of complete socialism would ultimately destroy society and the Democrat Party. And don’t tell me China is doing fine or even great because they have communism. Even they don’t implement complete communism. If they did, they would sink and bankrupt themselves within a decade.
Now, as a Christian, I hope and pray that the Democrat Party sheds their socialist tendencies in favor of free market capitalism. Of course, I do not think the Lord will have them do that, but one can only hope.

Earlier this week, President Trump held a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which members of the media and Democrat Party, for some reason, expected him to address the Russian meddling into U.S. elections following the indictment of 13 Russian entities by the Mueller investigation. (Now I understand the reason for bringing up these charges again: to cause the firestorm we’re seeing).
And because he did not address the issue, even going so far as to say he trusts Putin more than U.S. intelligence, he is being attacked and berated by people on both sides of the aisle.
The media is calling his meeting “disgraceful”, John Brennan is calling it “treason” and more than “high crimes and misdemeanors”, RINOs are joining the Left once again in attacking Trump and even conservative figures such as Ben Shapiro, Newt Gingrich, and others have said it was a disgraceful meeting.
However, I see it entirely differently. Trump did what was best for his presidency in the long-term, even if it draws criticism and ire in the short-term. To even admit or give credence to the Mueller investigation means to give an inch to the opposition. That’s something you never do.
If you give an inch to the Left, they will take a mile. If Trump mentions, at least on camera, to Putin that they meddled in the elections and will be punished for it, not only does that tick off Putin, which is not the aim of Trump, but it gives legitimacy to the insane witch-hunt.
But there’s one thing that really needs to be said, regardless of your political leanings: while there was Russian ENTITIES meddling in the election, we have not seen any sort of Trump-Russia collusion, we have not seen Russia actually hacking anything (in regards to the DNC servers, it was Podesta’s fault for being stupid enough to fall for one of the most obvious scams on the internet), and we have not seen any vote, popular or electoral, be affected by this meddling.
The outcome of the election was not affected by this case, as even Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has said TWICE now.
But Trump has absolutely no reason to back the same intelligence agencies that have worked and conspired to keep him out of office since his nomination, perhaps even longer. He has no reason to support traitors in the Deep State who literally make up dossiers of urinating hookers to destroy him.
In my mind, the only thing he did wrong was saying he trusts Putin more than U.S. Intelligence. While the Intelligence community is not to be trusted, Putin is a dictatorial gangster who has literally killed his opposition. He runs sham elections and strongly intends to take back the now-sovereign nations who were once part of the Soviet Union.
Putin would love nothing more than to see a destabilized America. The Deep State and the Left are in the same boat. The difference is that Putin goes as far as to kill and imprison his opposition on the regular. I’m not defending the Deep State by any means, but I would be naïve to say that Putin is any better.
That being said, I understand why Trump said what he said. Trump is a negotiator. A deal-maker. You don’t make mutually-beneficial deals by antagonizing the other party. Trump was not going to publicly berate and try to embarrass Putin by calling out meddling that had nothing to do with the Kremlin, as far as we know, and that ultimately did nothing to change the outcome of the election.
Trump is a man who tends to treat people the way he wants to be treated. Unless you publicly attack and berate him, Trump can be your absolute best and most loyal friend. Putin, so far, has treated Trump far, FAR better than people within OUR OWN GOVERNMENT have.
As for the people that attack Trump for this, and I mean people who call themselves conservatives, I cannot honestly understand their rhetoric here. Take, for example, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro. Even Ben has called this meeting “disgraceful”.
What he calls disgraceful was Trump calling out U.S. Intelligence’s hand in the deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations and saying he supported Putin’s claim that he did not meddle in the elections, saying: “I have confidence in both parties.”
Ben Shapiro responded by saying: “Both parties. One party being a murderous dictator, and the other the intelligence community that works for him.”
He is only half right in this instance. Yes, Putin is a murderous dictator, as I have said earlier, but the intelligence community does not work for Trump. It’s SUPPOSED to work for him, but it doesn’t. If it did, it would not be working 24/7 to try to undermine and destroy him. And let’s not forget that it’s not just his own intelligence community that he’s talking about here.
Do you know what Trump’s intelligence community is? Obama’s intelligence community. The same one that tried to keep Trump from becoming President. Again, why would he support a treasonous community like that?
But do you really want to know what is interesting about all of this. Aside from people like Ben Shapiro and other conservatives, it seems that the Democrat and Republican Parties, as well as the media seem to care more about what Trump did or did not say instead of what PETER STRZOK, LISA PAGE, AND THE FBI TRIED TO DO IN THE ELECTIONS!
People like Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake, John McCain, and other establishment RINOs are more outraged at this subjectively “bad” meeting than they were at Peter Strzok’s narcissistic cockiness in his House hearing. The guy threatened to “stop Trump”, refused to turn over crucial evidence for HIS OWN HEARING, worked in the Clinton email case and the Mueller investigation. But what did we hear from the GOP Establishment? Crickets.
And now they say Trump was the disgraceful one? Thanks for reminding me how strongly I heavily dislike these people.
Then again, it’s not really surprising. What was surprising was conservatives turning on Trump for this. No, I don’t like Putin either and no, I don’t consider him an ally to the U.S., but the U.S. Intelligence community has done EVERYTHING to make me dislike and distrust them. And Trump must think the same.
Supporting the Intelligence community over another country does not make you a patriot if that intelligence community is as rotten and corrupt as it is. Heck, supporting the government altogether, regardless of who is in power, does not make you a patriot. Supporting your country does. Supporting your troops does. Supporting your fellow Americans does.
This attack against Trump, at least from fellow conservatives, is simply asinine. Trump did what he thought was the best thing to do. Now, he has also backtracked on some things, particularly in regards to the intelligence agencies saying he has "full faith and support" in them and accepts their conclusions on Russian meddling in the election.
However, the point remains that no one can honestly blame him for being distrustful of the intelligence communities. Like I said, trusting Putin over them is questionable, but the intelligence community has lost many people's trust in the past few years. You can't trust either.
And let's not forget that the biggest part of all this comes from the DNC servers, which we do not know if Russians actually hacked them since the Democrat Party refused to turn the servers over to the FBI and the FBI was just fine with it.
But with what Trump did, all that would really come of this is people being ticked off at him, as we've seen. The Left is always ticked off at him, so who cares about that? But even the conservatives who are ticked off at him will eventually let go of that anger because they are not emotionally-disturbed liberal crybabies.
They know Trump has been a fantastic President so far and won’t push for impeachment if he ticks them off on occasion. But as for the Deep State and the media, they will always want to impeach Trump. The important thing to consider is that Republicans have to at least have some quasi-legitimate reason for it, which they so far do not have, even with today's backtracking of Trump's words.
Like I said, we have not seen evidence suggesting a single vote was affected in the election and that's all the meddling we have actually seen. Otherwise, the DNC server hack is merely speculation from the Left, as is collusion and everything else.
Overall, while his meeting with Putin was not something that I could say is groundbreaking or helps our relations with Russia all too much, I will say that it was not the apocalyptic and treasonous meeting people might say it is. Actually, I would say it was quite the opposite. I think it was a pretty good meeting. What with Putin and Trump both mocking the collusion narrative and Trump pointing back at the DNC’s servers, I would say it was not a bad meeting at all.
But even if the meeting was just fine, I would not be willing to throw Trump under the bus for it. And I do not think he has a darn thing to apologize for, even if he is backtracking on certain things.
The overall point is that the Intelligence community is not to be trusted in certain matters (not necessarily for absolutely everything). I don't blame Trump for wanting to backtrack on his trust of them. He should try to refocus the attention on the DNC server.. But the fact remains that the Intelligence community is rotten and corrupt and only marginally better than Putin when it comes to trustworthiness.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
Last week, running on the fumes of the massive illegal immigration debate centered around children separated from their “parents”, three Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced a bill calling on the abolishment of ICE. The three Democrats were Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY).
However, House Republicans called their bluff and agreed to bring the measure up to the House floor so the Democrats could be on record supporting the abolishment of ICE. And so, the three Democrat representatives said they would vote “no” on the measure if it is brought up to the House floor.
For their part, they’re also trying to salvage the little dignity they have left, saying: “We know Speaker Ryan is not serious about passing our ‘Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,’ so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt.”
Yeah, it’s not that he’s not serious about such a bill. Whether he is or isn’t is beside the point. The point is that these Democrats wanted to have some good p.r. by seemingly wanting to back the abolishment of ICE but their bluff was called. It’s them who were not serious about the bill, they just wanted some good rep.
Of course, this is not entirely surprising. According to polls, only 25% of Americans think ICE should be abolished (which is still too high, if you ask me). If they were to seriously go for such a measure, while it wouldn’t pass anyway since even some Democrats are against the idea, Republican candidates could use those votes in their campaigns to highlight the damage the Democrats could cause were they to win any seats in Congress.
Now, here’s the thing: we know this is the direction the Democrat Party is headed. Everyone from Keith Ellison to former PP CEO Cecile Richards is insisting that the future of the Democrat Party lies with people like Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist who defeated Democrat incumbent Joseph Crowley. If open socialism is the Democrat Party’s future, the Democrat Party has no future.
Regardless, they believe this is the direction their base wants to go. In this direction lies the destruction of the very fabric of society, as I have said in the past. Abolishing ICE is what socialists like Ocasio-Cortez want and will eventually try to go for, regardless of what the polls say. The only reason these three Democrats even brought up such a bill is because of Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over Crowley. It’s one of the things she’s been looking to do in Congress.
But due to this very act of cowardice on the part of the three Democrats, the Party must face the truth: this kind of rhetoric isn’t going to get them far. As it stands, the Democrat Party is too afraid to actually pull the trigger on supporting the abolishment of ICE. The problem is they’ve been in this kind of situation in the past.
Democrats used to be against gay marriage until they believed people wanted it. Democrats used to be against illegal immigration until they realized illegals mean free votes. As it stands, the Democrat Party is split on the abolishment of ICE, but they will eventually be unified again, likely against ICE and the country.
The only problem for them is that, with the demands the socialists in the Democrat Party are making now, just about any fool can torch them in an election. Let’s review a list I shared with you some articles ago about the demands these socialists are making. These socialists want to abolish ICE, abolish prisons, abolish profits, guaranteed income for everyone, no borders, no deportation of illegals, supposedly free healthcare, supposedly free education, and the complete and utter destruction of the 2nd Amendment, guaranteeing only the government has guns.
In that previous article, I made the case for why these are all terrible ideas (not that it’s not obvious to sane people) and any candidate can use those arguments to destroy these points. Like I said in that article, abolishing ICE means more crime, more drugs, more guns pouring into the country that will land in the hands of criminals and, least of all, more illegal immigrants coming into the country.
The only people who would deny these facts are those who should be considered insane. Which is why I say the Democrat Party has no future if people like Ocasio-Cortez are the future.
Now, don’t get me wrong. The Democrats have wanted a lot of the things they’ve recently been campaigning on for ages. The difference is that they used to lie about what they wanted (don’t misunderstand, they still do in some cases). In the past, in order to get what they wanted, they had to lie about what they wanted.
If Obama had been entirely honest about Obamacare, how likely would it have been to pass? Containing death panels, mandating people to get it or pay a fee and knowing it would increase premiums twice-fold, no one in their right mind would be okay with having Obamacare if they knew about these things.
If Obama had been entirely honest about the Iran Nuke Deal, how likely would it have been viewed as a good thing by the American people and the media? Sending billions upon billions of dollars to an enemy who constantly calls for our deaths in order to help them build the most dangerous weapons known to man? No one in their right mind would say “sign me up!”
But now, with certain things, the Democrats are abandoning any semblance of subtlety. They are, for once, honest with their words. They are looking to do what they say they want to do. Why? Because the emergence of Trump, as well as his sustained popularity, have driven the Left insane. They see Trump as a radical and think their best chance is to fight fire with fire.
They see Trump as far-right, so they believe they must go far-left. The problem is that it’s messing with the formula in a dangerous way. They are exposing themselves as socialists. And while half the Millennial generation may be with them (God knows why), most of America is still sour on the idea of turning into a socialist/communist nation.
We need only see Venezuela, North Korea, China, the Soviet Union, and Europe to see how terrible socialism is. Socialism has amounted to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people and counting. It’s almost too easy to destroy any socialist argument.
Now, I understand that many people vote with their hearts and not their brains. Looking at today’s political climate of Leftist whack-jobs attacking Trump supporters, those people are not very likely to listen to reason when it comes to socialism. But the thing about living life with such unreasonableness is that it can’t last forever.
At one point or another, people are faced with reality and will accept the truth. I’ve used this example before, but I think it’s a good one, so I will restate it.
Picture yourself driving down the road, coming up to an intersection. You see that you have a red light and there’s a big truck about to cross the intersection. Living unreasonably, you theorize that the truck is not actually there, despite all evidence against your theory, and drive through the intersection.
That’s living without reason. But eventually, reason always returns to you, and it can return the easy way or the hard way.
Translating this into political terms, people will realize the horrors of socialism the easy way or the hard way.
The good news is we don’t need to risk learning this the hard way. We have real-world examples that speak against socialism, including simple logic. The other good news is that the people who want full-on communism and socialism and the things written in the aforementioned list are in the minority.
We saw, during the 2016 presidential election, many former Democrat voters voting for Trump because they were disillusioned with the job Obama did and thought Hillary would be more of the same. Recently, we’ve been seeing a quiet movement (which has only been quiet because the MSM wouldn’t dare cover it, as it goes against their narrative) called the “Walk Away” movement in which people expressed their disappointment with the Democrat Party going farther and farther to the Left that they can’t even recognize the Party anymore.
The vast majority of America does not want socialism. It’s for these very reasons that I say the Democrat Party has no future if Ocasio-Cortez is their future. And some Democrats are smart enough to know that.
For the many, MANY dumb things Schumer and Pelosi say, they are actually pretty smart. They have to be in order to survive calls of stepping down. For as Leftist as they are, they still remain somewhat sane and reasonable – particularly compared with Warren, Sanders (although he’s also smart enough, seemingly, to be against abolishing ICE) and the crazy lady I’ve been talking about throughout this article. They represent a Democrat Party that is still not completely screwed. And I think they know that in order to return to power, they need to continue lying about what they want.
So there will be a sort of civil war in the Democrat Party in the near future. That much is for sure.
But returning to the three Democrats “looking” to abolish ICE, it’s quite clear that this was nothing but a political stunt. They want their voters to think they want to go through with abolishing ICE but never had any actual intentions on voting on the measure. Their bluff was expertly called and they were left obliterated.
However, as quiet as this measure was, if things go the way I think they will, there will be another similar measure that will be as loud as any bill could be. Here’s hoping and praying these socialists are soundly defeated and sent home with their tail between their legs.

The answer to that question is the exact same answer for the question “what’s so wrong about being a black female?”, which is: absolutely nothing. And yet, the Left is always the one to bring up race and gender in every issue. They always have problems with someone’s skin color.
Earlier this week, President Trump announced the nomination for Justice Anthony Kennedy’s replacement for the Supreme Court. Trump chose D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a solidly conservative judge who would most likely have a hand in overturning Roe v. Wade if the case is brought up again to the Supreme Court. He just so happens to be a white man. GASP! The horror! How can President Donald Trump select someone who is a member of the majority race in this country?! How could he select yet another white man?!
The thing is that, regardless of who he chose, the Left would have utterly trashed that person, if the Women’s March statement opposing the nomination of judge “XX” is anything to go by. Had it been Barrett (my personal favorite), Trump would’ve been attacked for trying to play the “woman” card and she would’ve been attacked for “betraying women” for being pro-life.
So, with the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, the Left is attacking him for everything (even saying he will kill millions of people), including for his race and gender. If you’re still wondering if the Left is racist and sexist, there’s your answer.
Supposed comedian Stephen Colbert joked about this whole thing, saying that Kavanaugh fills Trump’s BINGO card for nomination. He literally pulled out a BINGO card that only had “white guy” squares.
Fellow butcher of comedy Jimmy Kimmel joked: “[Trump] narrowed his candidates down to three but, in the end, Brett Kavanaugh was the white guy for the job.”
And it’s not just washed-up comedians who are taking a jab at Kavanaugh’s race. The New York Daily News attacked not only Kavanaugh’s race and gender, but the race and gender of those who support and praise him. “After President Trump picked a man who many believe will be the deciding vote on reversing Roe v. Wade, the White House released a list of praise from 34 members of Congress – all of whom are white men.”
I’ve used this argument before, but I believe it to be effective and relevant, so I will use it again here. Replace the word “white” with the word “black” or “Hispanic” and the word “man” with the word “woman” and you can’t help but notice the racism on display.
To better picture it, I’ll rewrite some of the aforementioned statements and “jokes”.
Picture Stephen Colbert pulling out a BINGO book that only had “black chick” on it. Picture Colbert bashing Trump for choosing a black woman for Supreme Court based only on the fact that the nominee is black and female.
Or how about what Kimmel said? “He narrowed his candidates down to three but, in the end, [Judge XX] was the black woman for the job.” I get he’s using a pun, so this doesn’t have the same effect, but picture Kimmel also attacking the nominee’s race and gender.
Or the NY Daily News: “The White House released a list of praise from 34 members of Congress… all of whom are black women.”
So, again, I ask: what is so wrong with being white and a man? And don’t tell me I’m being a white supremacist sympathizer for defending white men or white people in general. Were people who defended black people before the 60s called “black supremacist sympathizers”? No. And considering it’s white people being attacked for absolutely no reason, of course I’m going to defend them. Same way I would defend black people being attacked for absolutely no reason. Same goes for Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Muslims, gay people, transgenders, liberals, conservatives, atheists, Christians, etc.
It’s not right to attack people for no reason. But the most important thing is recognizing just who are the ones attacking people: those who consider themselves “tolerant” and “loving” and “caring”.
The truth is they only tolerate you if you agree with them. The Democrat Party’s slogan for 2018 and 2020 should honestly be: “Join us in tolerating and loving people who are different or die.” Considering their constant (and sometimes violent) attacks against Christians, conservatives and Trump supporters, I’d say that slogan fits them perfectly.
They don’t tolerate others. They HATE others. Anyone who is different, who thinks differently from them, cannot be tolerated. Their speech must be eliminated and censored. And when they set their sights on a particular group of people, they don’t let up.
Historically, the biggest reason the KKK was formed was not simply to attack and kill black people. It was formed to attack and kill Republicans. When Lincoln freed the slaves, black people had no real reason to vote Democrat, considering they were the ones who fought for their “right” to keep them slaves. So, the KKK formed to attack and kill Republicans and black people were usually Republicans.
Today, while not always necessarily the case, white people are sometimes associated with the Republican Party. And unless they denounce the GOP, like the black people who began voting Democrat to keep themselves out of trouble, those white people will be attacked and/or harassed.
Everything the Left does, historically, is fueled by hatred. They hated black people who would vote Republican (don’t misunderstand, they still do). They hate white people who vote Republican, calling them racists. They hate Hispanics who vote Republican, believing them to be abandoning their “brethren” at the border.
Make no mistake, I do not consider a single person who breaks the law to enter the country a “brother” or “sister”. And it also speaks to the Left’s racism to assume all Hispanics disapprove of Trump’s handling of immigration.
It speaks to their racism for them to assume all black people are Democrats. Even more so to assume they MUST vote Democrat.
The truth is that the Left does not tolerate white people who do not denounce their “whiteness” or the GOP. That is why they excuse their prominent Democrats who are white such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren (go ahead and tell me she’s Native American, I could use a laugh), etc. They are excused of their “whiteness” because they support the Leftist agenda. Same reason they excuse Al Gore’s and DiCaprio’s massive carbon footprints. They support the Leftist agenda as well.
Now, in all of this, you really have to ask why they would attack white people. It’s not like they have to fill some quota of being racist towards a group of people every other century. Well, the reason they attack white people is because they see it as an opportunity. An opportunity to garner more votes. You see, despite the Left having been the ones to most strongly support slavery and segregation, they’ve managed to distort history, in their takeover of the education system, to make it seem like it’s not the Left’s fault, but rather, white people in general. And more specifically, America’s fault.
Their arguments and attacks against black people were that they were inferior to the white man. Their arguments and attacks against white people are that their ancestors thought themselves superior to the black man. You see their tricks? It’s them who attacked black people but make it seem as though it was generally white people (and even Republicans) who made those attacks.
And so, they attack white people today for the atrocities of DEMOCRATS’ past. This is deception at its finest. They are making racism seem acceptable again. For what reason? To create more issues of race so they can continue getting elected. If you lived in the Left’s mind, you would believe America is as racist today as it was in the time before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and before the Emancipation Proclamation.
Race relations in the U.S. can’t be allowed to improve. For Democrats to be elected, people must be divided. They must be divided in terms of race, gender, class, etc. Black people must blame white people for things Democrats committed. Women must believe men are holding them back. The proletariat must believe the bourgeoisie are taking advantage of them.
This is how the Left wins. But the thing is that facts do not support this. White people do not treat black people the same today as in the past. Men don’t have more rights than women do. The working class isn’t being taken advantage of by the rich class.
But this doesn’t matter to the Left. In fact, these things are nothing but a bother to them. They MUST create division. They MUST attack white people to make it seem as though the Democrats have always been on the side of black people.
It’s nothing but a farce.
Regardless, it’s always necessary to point out the Left’s history of racism that continues to this day. They simply can’t help but be racist. It’s in their genes.

I know I’ve said this multiple times in the past, but it’s one of the few things I honestly cannot say enough: thank the Almighty Lord for choosing Trump to be POTUS. He’s truly Making America Great Again, and at even faster rates than any of us could have imagined. But this would not have happened had NeverTrumpers and Democrats gotten what they wanted: another President Clinton.
An article on Breitbart News correctly acknowledges this and takes note of the latest Supreme Court cases that have preserved free speech, which would not have happened under a President Clinton.
John Nolte, the writer of the article, writes: “Had NeverTrump got what they wanted in 2016… Justice Antonin Scalia would have already been replaced with another Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which ensured an immediate 5-4 left-wing majority… Wednesday’s retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy would have increased that already unthinkable majority to 6-3, ensuring a left-wing court rewriting the Constitution for decades to come.”
Looking back, the 2016 Presidential election was probably the single most important election this country ever had. Why do I say that? Let me explain:
With the way the Left has been acting, it was only a matter of time until they went full-on socialist. Sure, Trump’s election forced them to rush into this open ideology, but we knew that this is what they were. This election was a huge fork in the road. On the one side, you had Trump, who would Make America more Capitalist Again, cutting regulations, lowering taxes, having a booming economy. It’s no guarantee by any stretch of the imagination, but his work could set up a cultural shift away from socialism, by exposing it for what it is and offering the absolute best solution: capitalism.
On the other side, you had Clinton, who would run the country like an auction for the highest bidder to influence, incorporate more socialist policies and effectively run this country into the ground, farther than Obama managed. It cannot be overstated the massive bullet we dodged by not electing her. As the Breitbart article correctly points out, the Supreme Court would have a 5-4 Leftist majority with a future 6-3 Leftist majority.
This means that bake shops would have been forced to bake cakes for same-sex weddings or face severe punishment, unions would continue to be able to force non-members to pay fees, pro-life pregnancy centers would be forced to advertise abortion for its customers and religious freedom would be down the drain. America would have effectively fallen, not by any outside threat (though ISIS, North Korea and Iran would make their share of threats), but by an inside threat known as Communism.
America under a President Clinton would be entirely unrecognizable from the America the Founders envisioned and founded. And this is without even taking into consideration our 2nd Amendment rights, which might have been done away with shortly after the Parkland shooting, as well as illegal immigration, which she would have opened our borders and turned us into a sanctuary nation.
I have to confess something. Prior to the election, I foolishly believed a Clinton presidency would not have been so bad. I foolishly believed she would have maybe run the country like her husband did. As much of a disgusting animal as he is, he was not a horrible President, at least in terms of the economy. I foolishly believed she would have been alright, and considering the standard Obama set for Democrat Presidents in my mind, she would have been better than him.
Oh, how wrong I was. Thankfully, this is a lesson I (and the nation) did not have to learn the hard way. Because Hillary is not Bill. She’s not smart, not even a little. If she were, she would not have gotten caught using a private server. She still would have done it, but she wouldn’t have gotten caught. If she were smart, she would not have underestimated her opposition and assumed she would be crowned as POTUS. If she were smart, she would've left Bill after the first rape case and forged a successful career without him. Clearly she felt she needed Bill, so she stayed. Even she knows she's not very smart.
She would have likely put the final nail in the coffin Obama crafted for the country. She would have effectively turned this country to complete socialism, maybe not as an official form of government, but more in the shape of Venezuela: sham elections to elect their dictator.
Looking back, the country had two choices that day: socialism (even if we didn’t quite know it), or abundant and powerful capitalism (even if we didn’t quite know it, or were skeptical of Trump but still chose him over the nasty woman). Looking back, we can see the massive miracle that Trump’s victory was.
What do I mean? Think about it. Think about the obstacles he had to face. Not only did he have to face 15 other Republican candidates, many of whom would make great Presidents themselves, but had to also defeat one of the most crooked and corrupt politicians in American history, defeat an FBI and DOJ who, under orders of then-President Obama, were out to destroy him, and he had to face a fake news media that would lie so much, if they were Pinocchio, their noses would cover all 57 states.
Add all this to the fact that, had he lost, America would have gone down a path from which there was likely no return – a path that would ultimately have utterly changed the country as founded, just as Obama sought to do – and you really have to acknowledge the massive miracle God performed for us.
He decided that, at least for now, we can have the chance to return to Him, to trust in Him again and to make this country His again. He decided that we would not go further down the socialist rabbit hole. And He has decided that the Left would expose themselves for the evil they are. This is why I keep saying there might not be a Democrat Party in the near future. Socialism is evil, we’re witnessing it, and most people don’t want to follow.
Of course, there are those who do wish to follow, and those people are either wicked or weak. They either don’t know the evils of socialism and blindly follow it, or know the evils of socialism and simply don’t care. Worse yet, some could both know the evils of socialism and that’s the precise reason they want it.
By “those people” I mean every-day voters, not elected officials. Elected officials almost exclusively know about the evils of socialism and that’s why they want it. They want all of that power that socialism would bring them.
This is what we could have had with a President Clinton. What we could have had if the NeverTrumpers had gotten their way, according to the Breitbart article.
Now, the article does mention that these NeverTrumpers, while citing morality and principle, chose to be against Trump because of their own vanity. Because of their supposed desire to be on CNN and MSNBC.
In the article’s words: “Never Trump is and was only about one thing – a bunch of spoiled, petty, small-minded, bigoted sore losers who desperately want to be on CNN and MSNBC.”
While I do agree that they are spoiled, petty, small-minded, bigoted losers, I don’t quite think it was their vanity that made them NeverTrumpers.
I believe it’s somewhat multi-faceted. For some, it might be their egos. By which I mean that, at the time of Trump’s nomination, they were against him because they did not want to associate with someone whom, in their mind, was barbaric and uncivilized. And now that Trump has shown to be very conservative and doing exactly what these supposed conservatives wanted out of a Republican President, their egos will not let them admit they were wrong. They still see him as an inarticulate brute, despite his conservative and pro-America accomplishments. They are too stubborn to admit they were wrong about him.
This, however, only covers some NeverTrumpers. Those within the media like Jonah Goldberg, David Frum and such. However, there is another kind of NeverTrumper: current and former elected Republicans and former workers of elected Republicans. This includes people like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell (though he’s playing ball for right now. Still don’t trust him, though), Jeff Flake, John McCain, Mitt Romney, etc. They are NeverTrumpers, not simply because of their egos, but because they are not true conservatives. They belong to an exclusive club known as the Washington Establishment. And this club resents the heck out of Trump not just for winning, but for surviving their attacks, thriving even DESPITE these attacks and effectively showing everyone how much of a scam these Washington elites are. Showing everyone how a government can run right and that these people have been stalling and stonewalling virtually everything, running an ineffective government that was best left up to the executive branch.
And THAT is the ultimate desire of the Washington Establishment. To turn Congress into a slow and ineffective branch that would be best usurped by the POTUS, getting us a step closer to actual Fascism and socialism. Funny enough, it’s not too dissimilar to what Germany did under Hitler.
This brand of NeverTrumpers are all effectively Democrats (again, putting an asterisk next to McConnell for now).
So while Nolte may believe these people are all about vanity (admittedly, that’s a small part of it), it’s also a lot more than that. NeverTrumpers of the Republicrat variety are not necessarily about vanity (thought they love the adulation they sometimes receive from the media when attacking Trump) but rather about furthering the Leftist goal of increasing the size of the government to U.S.S.R levels.
In their minds, the U.S.S.R will be succeeded by the U.S.S.A. – the United Socialist States of America. This is why they aligned themselves with Hillary. This is what her legacy would have brought on us.
It cannot be overstated how much we owe the Lord for keeping the Clintons out of the White House. We already owe Him our very lives because of the sacrifice of His Son, but now, we owe Him even more than that. A debt that is already unrepayable has become even more unrepayable.
Which is why I constantly offer Him my thanks, my worship and my undying faith. It’s really the most I could possibly do for Him.

This week has truly been devastating for the Left. With regards to Supreme Court matters alone, they faced loss after loss with 5-4 decisions on pro-life pregnancy centers no longer being forced to promote abortion and public sector unions no longer being able to force non-union-members to pay fees.
But both of those news are tame in comparison to hearing that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy would be retiring at the end of the Court’s annual term (end of June). This opens the door to President Donald Trump nominating another possible Constitutionalist like Gorsuch to the Court, handing conservatives a reliable majority in the Supreme Court.
Despite the fact that Justice Kennedy was nominated by President Ronald Reagan, he has proven to be wildly unpredictable, a moderate and often a swing voter in the Court alongside Chief Justice John Roberts.
He upheld Obamacare as Constitutional, was the key vote that legalized same-sex marriage and upheld women’s “right” to abortion in 1992.
He was a liberal in all but name. And now, Trump has the prime opportunity to nominate yet another Gorsuch and deal a major blow to decades of Leftist Justices getting their way. Of course, that includes such things as Obamacare, DACA, illegal immigration, sanctuary cities and states, same-sex marriage, and perhaps the single biggest issue: abortion.
Now, the White House has narrowed a list of over 20 picks down to 5. This list includes people like Brett Kavanaugh, Amul Thapar, Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman and Raymond Kethledge.
From what we know about them, while they all have voted conservatively in many issues, people like Kavanaugh and Hardiman have shown to be relatively moderate in other areas, with Kavanaugh upholding Obamacare in a couple of cases, saying that Obamacare penalties were actually “taxes” in one of those cases, and with Hardiman seemingly buckling to typical Leftist hysteria of racism and discrimination when he struck down a fire department’s residency requirement, which he termed “racially motivated” and went on record saying: “minority workforce representation that low suggests discrimination”.
So, in my mind, both Kavanaugh and Hardiman are too unreliable. The other three seem to be the most conservative, as well as true Constitutionalists who will stick with the written text in the Constitution, as well as the intentions of the people who wrote the Constitutional amendments, in their decisions rather than go with what they like or don’t like.
But in any case, most of these picks are true conservatives who will surely and seriously challenge the horrendous 1973 Roe v. Wade case that has resulted in 60.5 million abortions since 1973 in the U.S.
Successfully criminalizing abortion will likely be Trump’s lasting achievement, particularly since Court justices can serve for an entire generation or even more depending on their age. Gorsuch’s selection has already solidified a relatively conservative Court for decades to come. This will further solidify a conservative Court, leaving Roberts as the last swing voter, who has occasionally shown to be conservative himself. Add that to the fact that the two oldest Justices in the Court are liberals (Ginsburg, 85, and Breyer, 79) and you could potentially replace those two at some point at the end of Trump’s second term or beginning of Pence’s first term. Almost certainly by the end of Pence’s second term and most definitely by the beginning of Ivanka’s first term.
Jokes aside, it cannot be overstated how massive this is for America. For life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While a Presidential election will only guarantee a political side’s success for 4 years, and midterm elections for 2 years, whoever’s side gets to pick a new Supreme Court Justice could influence the country for decades.
Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court will almost certainly guarantee a very conservative Court for the next half century. This means that almost regardless of who wins elections in the next ten to twenty years, the Supreme Court will likely maintain the Constitution even in the case of a President Bernie Sanders (which will almost certainly never happen).
Now, with these news comes yet another reason for conservatives to vote in the November mid-term elections. Securing a Republican majority, or perhaps even a supermajority, as I think will occur, means that for the next two years, we will have one of the most conservative Presidents in history, a very solidly pro-Trump and conservative Congress and a very conservative Supreme Court for decades to come.
Man, if I were a liberal, I’d be panicking right now. I suppose the only thing that has kept them from completely running amok (yes, it can get worse) is the hope that Democrats might be able to take back the House at the very least. But if and perhaps when Republicans not only retain Congress but add more seats to amount to a supermajority, the Left might honestly panic and start another Civil War.
I don’t know, I wouldn’t put it past them to do it again. If the situation I describe becomes reality, the Left will be at its most powerless it has ever been. They might panic and do something stupid.
Not to compare this situation to a video game I know, but I will draw a fair comparison anyway. There’s this video game series titled Fallout, in which you play as a character in a post-nuclear war America set hundreds of years from now. In this series, America is utterly devastated by nukes after a war over resources with Communist China. According to the game’s lore, China invaded Anchorage, Alaska in search for oil and the U.S. counter-attacked, eventually invading main-land China. While it is unclear exactly what caused the Chinese to launch nukes at the U.S., it was most likely out of desperation to try to win an unwinnable war.
Now, what the heck does a game have to do with a real life situation? Like the Chinese Communists, the Left might feel cornered and trapped and feel as though they need to explore extreme situations to try and fight back. If they feel they don’t really have much to lose, the Left might go to any extreme necessary to try and reclaim the country they believe is theirs. Ironically, in the video game series, launching nukes wound up destroying China as well. This could also be the fate of the Democrat Party.
In resorting to desperate measures far worse than the incivility we’re already witnessing, the Democrat Party might well see itself destroyed.
Of course, the ideologies won’t die until God has destroyed the world, but the major political party of the Left might well cease to exist in the near future.
Regardless, that’s not what I want to take away from the retirement of Justice Kennedy. While it’s still something to be aware of, as of right now, I just want to delight in the fact that horrible Leftist cases decades-old will likely face their biggest and toughest challenge yet.

It is rare for me to share polls in back to back articles, but I honestly think this particular poll is noteworthy and even more important than the Obama poll.
In a recent poll released by Axios, 92% of Republicans and right-wing-leaning Independents say that “traditional news outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories at least sometimes”.
Now, that’s not really the most important part of the poll. While this is noteworthy as well, it’s expected for Republicans and conservative-leaning Independents to be distrustful of the media. But still, if the Left hopes to ever turn some Trump supporters into Democrats, they’re in for quite the uphill battle.
But perhaps more important than the Republicans’ views on MSM is the rest of the country, including other Independents and Democrats.
The results don’t look good for either one, surprisingly (or perhaps, unsurprisingly).
According to the poll, 79% of Independents (in general) believe the MSM deliberately makes up the news they’re reporting.
This could be potentially devastating for Democrats in the coming elections, if the highly-sought-after Independents largely distrust the news they see reported.
But while that could be devastating for Democrats, the numbers they pull from Democrat-leaning people could prove to be their Armageddon.
Asked the same question, 53% of Democrats believe the MSM is reporting fake news, compared to 46%. As expected, it’s far less than Republicans and Independents, but this is honestly huge.
Axios tells us that they polled nearly 4000 adults so if well over half of the Democrats said that they believe news sources deliberately report fake news, Democrats seeking election will be lucky to even see a blue drop of water in November.
In total, the Axios poll determines that 72% of the people surveyed are distrustful of the media. Now, one can legitimately say that this is just one poll and that the source may not be all that credible. I would agree with you if Axios weren’t one of the more popular news sources for Millennials.
While they don’t necessarily seem to be insanely anti-Trump, as many of their articles have to do with technology and other things Millennials go crazy about, they’re not exactly conservative by any stretch of the imagination. So if these relatively Left-wing people saw these kinds of results in their surveys, that’s eye-catching.
But the poll didn’t end there. It also asked people whether they think the MSM deliberately reports fake news, with 65% saying “they have an agenda”, 30% believing it’s just laziness or poor fact-checking and only 3% believe it’s accidental.
I, for one, believe it’s a combination of having an agenda and being lazy, at least in some occasions. For example, at some point last year, CNN was forced to retract a story regarding Trump Jr. and Russians. The reason for the retraction is that they got the dates wrong and thus, wouldn’t help the Mueller investigation prove any sort of collusion. This, I believe, was laziness on the part of CNN simply because they saw “Trump” and “Russia” and soiled themselves with excitement. But it’s also clearly part of the agenda-driven news we have been seeing for a while now. So that’s the reason I believe it’s a combination of both on occasion.
Although, most of the time, I believe they are deliberately lying (and have proven they are lying) in order to drive their agenda forward.
The Axios poll also asked people whether they believe they can spot fake news, with 78% of Republicans saying they believe they can spot fake news and 73% of Democrats saying the same.
And when it comes to checking facts and sources, Axios found that 57% of Democrats “say they use Google search to verify facts” compared to 48% of Republicans and 55% of Independents.
Looking at this, you might believe that’s actually bad for Republicans. Here’s why it’s not: Google is very Left-wing. They ensure their algorithms are favorable to Democrats and socialists and unfavorable to Republicans. If you remember, some time ago, Google deemed California’s Republican Party to have an ideology of Nazism. When it was brought to their attention, they removed it. Google is incredibly biased against conservatives, so why would Republicans trust what Google says?
Not to mention that the Axios poll also finds that 43% of Democrats use “fact-checking” websites such as FactCheck.org and Snopes.com. Neither is a fact-checking website, despite what they try to tell you. Want proof? Look up whether Hitler was a socialist in Snopes. They will deem that to be false, despite the fact that Hitler was the FOUNDER of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. It’s literally in the NAME and they claim Nazis weren’t socialists. Give me a break.
Oh, and by the way, the first few search results on Google are pages that say Nazis and Hitler weren’t socialist. Wonder how that could be.
What that particular poll question showed is not that Republicans don’t do research or won’t fact-check the information we receive. We just don’t use websites that are just as likely to lie to us as the fake news media.
Regardless, what’s really the most important part of the survey is the number of people who are distrustful of the MSM. If even more than HALF of the Democrats surveyed were distrustful of the media, that doesn’t bode well for Democrats one bit.
This kind of coincides with a little movement I noticed over this past weekend on Twitter. It was called the “#WalkAway” movement, where long-time Democrat voters were walking away from the Democrat Party because the Party is going too far Left and they simply can’t recognize it.
And if more candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is a radical socialist, keep winning their primaries over other Democrats, more and more Democrat voters will begin leaving the Party as well.
It’s hardly surprising. Many Democrats were disenchanted with the way Obama handled the country and decided to support and vote Trump. Since his election, we’ve seen the Democrats in Congress and in the Media be nothing more than obstructionist children throwing hissy-fits and crying foul, doing what they can to destroy Trump’s reputation at the least and his entire administration at most. That hasn’t changed.
Last year, a socialist whacko decided to shoot up a baseball field full of elected Republicans. Why would anyone sane want to align themselves with someone of his caliber?
And more recently, Maxine Waters has been endorsing harassment and uncivil behavior against Trump staffers. This is highly dangerous behavior, as harassment can easily turn into violence and death. And harassment against Trump staffers can easily turn into harassment against Trump voters and supporters. Matter of fact, that’s already been happening, if you recall the time when Cheesecake Factory employees harassed a black Trump supporter and his family, making violent threats against him.
A few articles ago, I said that this is what the Left has been reduced to. Nothing but savages. Is it really any wonder so many long-time Democrats are eager to jump off of that sinking ship? And make no mistake, it’s a sinking ship. The farther Left they go, the less support they’ll have. The less support they have, the less power they can acquire.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democrat Party ceased to exist in 30 or 40 years, at most. They’ve turned into radical anti-Americans, anti-Christians, anti-Founding principles, anti-capitalists. They’ve long ceased to be the Democrat Party of Bill Clinton. For as flawed as that piece of crap is, he was not a radical. He was a decent capitalist. His economy, as agreed by both sides of the aisle, is the second best economy of the 20th century, only following Reagan’s. You can’t have a successful economy without capitalism and capitalist policies.
Obama has taken the Party too far to the Left and not many people want to follow. This isn’t even about hatred of Trump anymore. Trump has been doing marvels for the country, especially for the economy. By the end of this century, unless someone better comes along, people will remember Trump’s economy to be the best of the 21st century, perhaps even rivaling and besting Reagan’s. And the Democrats are adamantly against it. They still want to impeach Trump on b.s. grounds today as much as when he first won the election.
But while their desire to impeach the President is undying, more and more people, including Democrats, are seeing what the Democrat Party is doing and what Trump is doing. They see Trump as far better than the Democrats at this point. Let me share with you a tweet from someone (I don’t know this person) about their decision to “#WalkAway” from the Democrat Party.
“I was ride or die Bernie. My folks were seriously angry w/me because after the DNC BS I refused to vote for Her. When I stopped watching Bill Maher, they started not liking me much. Think I got tossed from the will when I defended our POTUS. Yeah, I did a #WalkAway and I am proud.”
And here’s another tweet from someone else regarding the movement: “Some of my Democrat friends are not happy and considering leaving the Democrat Party and going independent. They feel the Democrat Party has gone so radical left and now refer to themselves ‘Progressive Democrats’. They are leaving the true Democrats behind…”
The Democrat Party is entirely unrecognizable from the Democrat Party of even the early 2000s. Don’t get me wrong, they’ve always been evil and have vaunted socialism and communism, but at least they used to pretend not to like them and even had some members who were totally against communism. JFK was hugely anti-communist. He was a pro-lifer and a Catholic. If he were alive today, he would not find a home in the Democrat Party. This is what many people are coming to find. Long-time Democrat voters and supporters who no longer feel can belong to the Democrat Party.
We really must thank the Lord for Trump’s election. Aside from the obvious good things of Making America Great Again, his presidency and immunity to Leftist attacks has caused the Left to unmask themselves. Like I said, they’ve been reduced to savages, but what they were before were simply savages donning a civil outfit. One can hardly say that this Democrat Party is all that dissimilar to the Democrat Party that would conduct public lynchings and go to war over their supposed “right” to own another human.
With the way they are currently acting, as utter savages against those who disagree with them, I wonder how long it will be until they demand erecting separate drinking fountains and public restrooms for us.
Jokes (perhaps) aside, you honestly can’t blame anyone for wanting to jump off of the sinking Democrat ship. They need to seriously course-correct and become far more centrist, at least, in order to even survive at this point. I don’t see anyone willing to lead the Democrat Party back to the center, so I don’t see that happening any time soon. I might be wrong in the future, but this will most likely lead to the utter destruction and dissolution of the Democrat Party.

Yesterday, I shared with you a nice story about Chris Pratt giving a good, wholesome, pro-God acceptance speech at the MTV Movie awards. Unfortunately, the Left is loud enough in their asinine outrage that they warrant some form of attention.
Amidst the controversy of children being separated from their “families” (unsure how many of them are simply using children to enter the country), actor Peter Fonda, Jane Fonda’s younger but equally as disturbed brother, sent out a series of disgusting tweets attacking DHS secretary Kristjen Nielsen and Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron.
Why do they continually attack an 11-year-old? Because they’re bullies, that’s why.
The tweets he sent out are vile, so I will censor the disgusting excuse for a human being’s language.
Let’s begin with his attack on Barron, which has since been deleted (it’s all in caps, because he is insane and loud, but it’s annoying so I will write it out like a normal human being who hasn’t lost all his marbles): “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant a**hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F***.”
Boy, can I have a lot of fun with this tweet alone, but I don’t want to make this too long. First, this is hundreds of times worse than what Border Patrol is doing. They aren’t ripping kids from their “parents’” arms. The parents willingly leave them when seeking asylum, otherwise they get deported. Second, no one is putting these kids with Polanski- I mean pedophiles. They are taken by government workers. Third, you can’t even get 90 million people to vote for the disaster candidate that was Hillary, how can you get 90 million people to march on the streets? That would take more than the entire population of the three biggest states: California, Texas and Florida.
Not everyone in California is a mind-numbed Leftist. Even less people are in Texas and Florida. Getting 90 million people to march on something would be taking nearly a third of the entire country’s population. You’re not gonna get that.
Regardless, let’s continue with the insane actor’s tweets.
This one is directed at Nielsen: “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passerby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passerby while being filmed for posterity.”
A couple of things regarding this. First, eww. Second, Democrats don’t get to whip people anymore. They lost that right when they lost the Civil War. Third, this, among the other vile things, goes to show how twisted and demented this p.o.c. is. Lastly, this jerk made me look up the term “gash” in a vulgar sense. I won’t share it with you because I do not wish to taint your minds to the levels of this demented dude.
This next tweet attacks ICE agents and their families (again, in all caps to show how insane he is): “We should hack this system, get the addresses of the ICE agents, CBP agents and surround their homes in protest. We should find out what schools their children go to and surround the schools in protest. These agents are doing this cuz they want to do it. They like doing this. F***.”
Does he have Tourette’s or something? Why does he have to end these tweets with that profanity? He already shows his literally insane outrage, why end it with that word? Also, again, this is far worse than what ICE and Border Patrol are doing. This is stalking and harassment. And that’s best case scenario.
Why does the Left feel as though violence is the only solution? Why do they feel they have to shout at people to “win” their arguments? Oh, right, because they can’t fight in the realm of ideas and their collective IQ barely reaches the double digit mark. And no, I’m not talking about ALL Left-leaning people here. I don’t refer to liberals as stupid. I refer to these Leftists with some semblance of power as stupid.
Now, I won’t share all of his vile, disgusting tweets because I think this is enough to show how insane these people are. I’m actually running out of adjectives to describe these people and their behavior. It’s vile, disgusting, volatile, asinine, insane, ridiculous… you get the idea.
But do you want to know what makes this entire hysteria laughable? It’s so obvious it’s just to score political points that it hurts.
First, this policy is not Trump’s. He didn’t enact anything, as I’ve honestly seen someone on Twitter complain about. This isn’t Trump’s doing. This is the result of a 1997 federal government agreement on the Flores v. Sessions case and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that accompanied children could not be held in custody under the terms of the settlement. This follows the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996. Who was the POTUS who signed this bill into law? Bill Clinton.
Second, Chuck Schumer and the Democrats rejected a bill proposed by the GOP to fix this issue. The reason? To “keep the focus on Trump”, according to Chuck Schumer in an interview with The Hill. When presented with a piece of legislation that would effectively end their cries and would mean a longer-term solution than an Executive Order (which Trump has signed), they reject it in order to continue this cockamamie fight.
The truth is that Democrats couldn’t care less about children. They are the ones who want to continue funding Planned Parenthood, the world’s biggest child-killing organization. They constantly separate children from their families, and that’s honestly the nicest thing that horrible organization does. Yet, we are to believe these evil people care about these children?
And let’s not forget, these are the “children” of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! Not the children of people who want to enter the country legally, but the children of people who want to enter the country so bad they would use children as anchors to seek asylum. It’s these parents that are WILLINGLY separating themselves from their children.
As an immigrant who came to this country as a child, I can assure you that there’s no way in Hell my mother would agree to being separated from me for more than 20 days just so she could enter the country. There’s no way in Hell any good parent would do that to their children. You’ve seen the pictures of Obama’s separation of children from their parents. You’ve seen them cry. What good parent would do that to their child? To enter the country? Sure, wherever they are coming from is most likely a “s**thole” country, but no good parent would willingly separate themselves from their children just for a shot at a better life. They would stay with their children and figure out another way.
Wanna know why this is such a big deal? A couple of reasons. More and more people are using this method of entering the country illegally. Why? Because Trump has taken away many other options for these people. Using a child to seek “asylum” is just a new, more popular way to have a decent shot at entering the country. Not to mention the hundreds of cases in which people have fraudulently used children to enter the country, according to the Washington Examiner. In fact, “301 children who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border with an accompanying adult from October 2017 to April 2018 were found to have no relation to the adult who posed as their parent or guardian.”
So people are clearly using children as a scam to enter the country.
Another reason this is such a big deal is because the Left has absolutely no other arrows in their quiver. With the economy roaring, ISIS basically defeated and NK agreeing to denuclearize, among many other great things, the Democrats have had nothing to sell people on. This is purely an effort to revive the long-since-dead “Blue Wave”. Not to mention this is meant to take us to “Let’s not separate families and just open the borders”.
Elections and open borders are all the Democrats care about here. Not the children, nor their families. If they cared at all about the children, they wouldn’t have signed this into law back in 1996. They wouldn’t have enforced this law while Obama was still President. They wouldn’t have waited until they exhausted all other options to attack Trump for.
They would’ve taken care of this when they had ultimate power back in 2009, or even at any point during Obama’s presidency, given that the GOP wants to put an end to this policy as well.
The Democrats don’t want a fix to this, they want something to fight over. They can’t win anywhere else. They can’t win with Trump’s economy kicking butt. They can’t win with unemployment numbers hitting record-lows. They can’t win with Trump making the world a little bit safer. Ironically, they will try to win with arguably the biggest issue Trump won: immigration.
But with Trump’s decision to sign an EO and working with the GOP to make this a more long-term thing, the Democrats won’t have much to fight over by the time November rolls around. The majority of the country still wants Trump’s agenda dictating immigration reform.
Now, I fully expect Paul Ryan to use the momentum of this farce of a fight to push his amnesty bill, thus hurting Republicans in November, but we’ll see what happens. Trump won’t sign an amnesty bill, that’s for sure.
Returning to Peter Fonda, I don’t think I need to say anything more. His disgusting psyche speaks for itself.

Recently, a myriad of pro-Trump candidates won their primary races against NeverTrump RINOs, and this has caused the Left and NeverTrumpers to go into absolute panic.
For one, I will mention that MSBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough is essentially calling the Republican Party a Trumpist cult in his little rant against the conservative candidates winning over the swamp-dwellers.
However, he is not the big focus for me today. In another MSNBC show hosted by Stephanie Ruhle, former George H.W. Bush aide Mark Leibovich, and speechwriter for George W. Bush, Peter Wehner, also attacked Trump, those who voted for him and those within the GOP who are smart and conservative enough to support the POTUS.
Ruhle began by asking where the “conscience" of the GOP was. Wehner made the claim that Republicans no longer had a conscience.
“Well, it doesn’t exist anymore. And the results of last night are going to make it even truer.” Wehner also claimed that many high-ranking Republicans were fellow NeverTrumpers but “they won’t speak publicly because they are afraid of losing.”
Yeah, I am very much aware of that fact. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have always been NeverTrumpers, although McConnell has been making some effort of crediting the President for being the most conservative President in his era. This crediting of Trump by McConnell, to Wehner, was baffling.
“That claim by McConnell is ridiculous, even on the grounds of policy, Trump has not achieved that much. The tax cut was the big thing. The reality is that if you look at what he’s achieved versus Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush or any other President, Republican or Democrat in the first year it’s pretty minimal.”
You really have to laugh at this moron. Let’s take a look back, shall we? In his first year, he immediately began attacking ISIS relentlessly, even driving them away from a lot of the territory they had captured thanks to Obama’s inaction in the region. In his first year, he immediately began deregulating businesses and corporations and employing a rule of “for every new regulation put in place, two others must be eliminated.” In his first year in office, he helped create 2 million jobs, and setting record-lows for unemployment across the board, as well as setting record-highs for the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Fast forward to a year and a half later, and unemployment is sitting at all-time lows in recorded history, ISIS has been nearly eradicated entirely, consumer confidence it at an 18-year high, oh, and NORTH KOREA HAS AGREED TO DENUCLEARIZE!
And if you really want to stick with just Trump’s first year in office, the Heritage Foundation completely disagrees with this outrageous faux-Republican. I wrote an article about half a year ago detailing the Heritage Foundation’s ranking of Trump in terms of conservatism in his first year in office. They ranked him as more conservative than Reagan. And Charlie Kirk offered us some numbers, saying “President Trump has cancelled and killed more than 1,500 regulations in the last 11 months. The most of any President in history in first year of a Presidency.”
So, as you can see, Wehner, Trump is the most conservative President in terms of policy we have ever had.
And since he didn’t have the evidence to back up his bogus claim, he decided to personally attack the President over his “lack of morals.”
“This is a man who is a pathological liar, who is not only engaged on an assault on truth, he’s trying to annihilate truth. The Republican Party is his sword and shield. And they’re complicit in the lies and complicit in the deep immorality, and I don’t just mean morality in terms of his sexual ethics, I’m talking about a man who’s basically at his heart, a nihilist, a kind of Niesche and a person who believes that might makes right. And the Republican Party which was born in the era of the Civil War and Lincoln, who is the greatest moral leader that America’s ever produced is now aligned with this person who is a moral idiot.”
Ruhle also questioned how evangelical Christians could essentially align themselves with Trump.
Boy, do I have a lot to talk about here.
First, what lies? He doesn’t mention anything specific. He just parrots the b.s. that members of the fake news media and Democrat Party have said. The most notable pathological liars who have held the highest office in the land have been Mr. “You Can Keep Your Doctor” Obama and Mr. “I Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Woman” Clinton. In case you haven’t noticed, they were both DEMOCRATS!
Second, what immorality? I will admit that he has made mistakes in the past (over a DECADE ago), but so have many people… in the Bible. In case this self-righteous heathen has forgotten, both Samson and King David were sexually immoral and both are regarded as great Judeo-Christian heroes. Why? Because both showed remorse and repentance to their sinful actions and were ultimately forgiven by the Lord.
Third, does this ignoramus not realize the kind of people he is aligning himself with? The kind of people who consider black infanticide en masse to be a healthcare issue. The kind of people who consider illegal immigrant rapist killers to have a “spark of divinity” in them. The kind of people who consider a severe mental illness to be gender liberation. These people are the very people Isaiah referred to in chapter 5 verse 20: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
Wehner is the very embodiment of that verse, as is the rest of the Left who consider themselves morally superior to CHRISTIANS!
But in reading these attacks against Trump, one can’t help but to think these people are getting more and more jumpy. They are beginning to panic more and more, and for good reason.
Every single attack they have laid out against Trump has massively backfired on them. The Russian collusion story is all but dead, Stormy Daniels is no longer in the spotlight, there’s nothing they can find that Trump has done that is an impeachable offense, and to make matters worse for them, he’s only GAINING popularity. His approval ratings are climbing, with more and more people being supportive of his dealings with North Korea, his withdrawal from the Iran nuke deal and just about everything he’s doing.
Nothing has worked thus far and now, they are searching the bottom of the barrel. And what do they find? Robert De Niro saying “f*** Trump” and this fake Republican calling Trump a “moral idiot”. This is what the Left has been reduced to. With the economy being the best we’ve seen in ages, getting a step closer in achieving world peace (though it will never happen) with North Korea, and America being made great again, all the Democrats can run on is “we don’t like this,” which is really a losing campaign, since all of these things are great for the world and the country.
Trust me, voters are noticing Democrats and the fake news media siding against Trump in his dealing with Kim Jong-un. They are rooting for North Korea to keep their nukes, and thus, remain a nuclear threat to the U.S. and its allies all for the satisfaction of knowing Trump would be humiliated.
They have always been anti-war and anti-nukes, but the minute Trump, as a Republican, takes a step towards making the world a little bit safer, they root for an enemy to keep their nuclear arsenal. At this point, they are essentially betraying core beliefs simply because Trump is doing something they would have praised Obama to the hills for had he done it.
Seriously, if Obama had done this, they would be demanding that his head would be placed on Mount Rushmore.
This NeverTrump strategy will ultimately backfire on these people. The very reason this panel was even put together was because NeverTrump candidates were destroyed in their primaries by pro-Trump candidates. That’s an indication that a good number of people are liking what Trump is doing and want to put in Congress people who will help pass the MAGA agenda. Further resistance coming from people who consider themselves Republicans will ultimately lead to their defeat.
But let these idiots blabber on about Trump not being conservative or moral. At least this way, we know who our friends are and who our enemies are.
