Socialism brings with it a slew of massive problems that are extremely difficult to overcome, which is why the economic and governmental system is basically always a death sentence for any nation. Venezuela is currently experiencing this slow and painful death.
If they aren’t finding problems with gas and oil (despite being one of the most oil-rich nations in the world), they are finding problems with food sources. If not that, it’s medical problems. If not that, it’s electricity problems. If not that, it’s election integrity problems. Usually, these problems are not mutually exclusive and happen all at once. And most recently, we find that the country’s education system is all but obliterated.
The New York Times (of all people) published a story highlighting the fact that many kids pass out during class or school-hours in general due to a lack of food.
“Hundreds of children filed into their school courtyard to hear a local Catholic bishop lead prayers for their education… By the end of the 15-minute ceremony, five children had fainted and two of them were whisked away in an ambulance. The faintings at the primary school have become a regular occurrence because so many students come to class without eating breakfast, or dinner the night before.”
What’s more, many students have altogether stopped attending school ever since the schools stopped providing lunches. Others have also stopped attending due to an inability by parents to afford school uniforms.
In general, kids are far more encouraged to get a job and begin to help in providing their families with food and money than go to school. This sort of thing happens in two places: the Middle Ages and socialist countries.
I’ve already explained in multiple articles that socialism brings people to slavery and to antiquated times – times when people lived far worse lives and with less-advanced commodities afforded to them.
But a lack of food is far from the only problem the education system in Venezuela has to face. A lack of teachers is also a major concern. With the GDP per capita in Venezuela at about $2,500 a year, compared to the $55,000 in the US, teachers make almost nothing, as the NYT further reports:
“’An entire generation is being left behind,’ said Luis Bravo, an education researcher at the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas. ‘Today’s education system doesn’t allow children to become meaningful members of society.’”
“The government stopped publishing education statistics in 2014. But visits to more than a dozen schools in five Venezuelan states and interviews with dozens of teachers and parents indicate that attendance has plummeted this year. Many schools are shuttering in the once-wealthy nation as malnourished children and teachers who earn almost nothing abandon classrooms to scratch out a living on the streets or flee abroad…”
“In Venezuela’s most-populous state of Zulia, up to 60 percent of about 65,000 teachers have deserted in recent years, according to estimates by Alexander Castro, head of the local teacher’s union. ‘They tell us that they prefer painting nails for a few dollars than work for a minimum wage,’ Mr. Castro said… Maracaibo’s biggest school no longer has any functioning bathrooms. It was designed for 3,000 students; only 100 now show up.”
This, of course, is pretty bad news for the future of the country. With few children and even fewer teachers being around, there will be less high-skill workers available in the future. Children who perhaps had ambitions to become doctors and help out sick people might no longer have such an option due to hunger, a family struggling to just survive and needing all available hands on deck to bring in money and food, and people actually qualified to teach children becoming more and more scarce as time goes on.
And the biggest culprit here is none other than socialism. I’m not surprised whatsoever that the government of Venezuela stopped publishing education statistics in 2014. They would’ve been embarrassed and told that something was going terribly wrong in their little paradise.
If you remember, back in February of this year, Univision’s Jorge Ramos was detained by Maduro’s officials, who had him and his crew thrown into a security room and their equipment confiscated after Ramos made the mistake of showing Maduro, whom he was interviewing, a video of kids rummaging through a trash truck in search of food.
Clearly, Maduro doesn’t like to be told or shown that his socialist paradise is anything but that, and punished the American journalist as much as he could without violating international law. So it’s no surprise that in 2014, the same Maduro had ordered for information relating to education statistics to no longer be published and made known to the public. Anything that makes him look like a terrible leader and anything that could jeopardize his own power must be eliminated, even if it’s just a spreadsheet.
This is the way that socialist/communist dictators act. Maduro doesn’t care that his people are starving. He doesn’t care that there are electricity problems. He doesn’t care that there is a gas and oil shortage. He doesn’t care that people are dying due to the extremely shoddy healthcare system. He doesn’t care that schools are essentially being abandoned both by teachers and by students who can no longer afford to attend what are supposed to be considered “free” education facilities. He doesn’t care that children have to rummage through garbage in search of food. In his own eyes, he’s God.
He thinks he is beloved because everyone around him would risk execution if they told him THE TRUTH. He thinks there is no actual problem in Venezuela and any problems that may exist are either due to the “far-right” or they are just fabrications created by said “far-right”. He lives in his own little world, ignoring what his socialist policies are doing to his people, and living a grand life in his own palace.
He is the epitome of a socialist elite, much as the elites in D.C. are. These people live in their own little bubble, which is why the American elites bring in Harvard and Stanford Law professors (who have extensive records of anti-Trump sentiment and one of them might’ve become a Supreme Court Justice had Hillary won) to impeachment hearings to further spread hearsay and pass it off as objective fact. They think most Americans will be impressed by Ivy League Law professors but this very sentiment proves the elitist, snobbish culture of the Washington Elites.
Maduro is not too different, only he already has the kind of power the American Left wishes they had. But the problems that face Venezuela, though will absolutely never be remedied by Maduro, largely due to the fact that his ideology is the biggest reason for these problems in the first place, will only get worse as time goes by.
Like I said, kids not going to school is largely a problem for a country, and particularly, a country’s economy. Now, the economy is already in the toilet and no efforts are being made to improve it, but the future only looks worse for Venezuela if the trend continues. Never mind being a third-world country, Venezuela runs the risk of outright becoming a nation that is centuries behind the modern world.
Most children, if this trend continues, will only know how to perform manual labor or other generally low-skilled jobs. Jobs like doctors, lawyers, engineers, scientists and other generally high-skilled jobs will become more and more rare unless something drastic happens that changes things.
This is what rampant socialism does to a country. The U.S. wouldn’t be very different if it implemented socialism and totally, or mostly, replaced capitalism. The problems we see happening in Venezuela are problems that can happen in this country and, funny enough, tend to happen wherever there are socialists in charge. California is just one of these examples and would in all likelihood be a failing economy if it weren’t part of the United States.
Socialism/communism, like I said in my previous article, is a plague that must be eliminated completely.

Every year, a Senate Republican writes up a “Wastebook”, a report of numerous unnecessary and highly wasteful spending that our government partakes as though we have a limitless supply of money. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been in charge of making this report for a few years now. Here are some of the things that our government chooses to waste our tax money on:
1) $153,000,000 on the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority (WMATA).
Spending money on public transport is expected; spending millions upon millions of dollars on a failing system in the hopes of fixing problems by throwing money at it, however, is wasteful. Yet, this is what the government did in 2019 and will likely continue doing for years to come: throw money at problems and hope they magically get resolved. Money can, indeed, help with this problem, but it has to be spent wisely.
2) $300,000 to fund debates and Model U.N. competitions… in Afghanistan.
Ignoring how much of a miserable joke the actual U.N. is, why would we fund debates and Model U.N. competitions outside of the country? Wouldn’t it make more sense for, oh, I don’t know, AFGHANISTAN to be funding things that happen in their country?
And by the way, this is a point I will make more than once in this article, so brace yourselves.
3) $708,466 to fund research involving making Zebrafish addicted to nicotine.
Literally why? What purpose does this serve? To discover the effects of nicotine on fish? Who does that help? We already know what it does to humans, what information could we gain from doing this research? And why so much of it? What is the money going towards, giving the fish expensive Cuban cigars? Research to figuring out how to light a cigarette underwater? Figuring out if the fish prefer using pipes while reading the morning newspaper?
4) $84,375 purchasing a statue from American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan to place in the U.S. embassy in Mozambique.
… I don’t even know what to say about this. Ironically, this was in the middle of the government shutdown back in February, back when Leftists were “worried” about how the government was going to pay government workers and help the poor. I don’t know, maybe not paying for a statue made by Bob Dylan might help there, wasteful Washington Establishment.
5) $4,658,865 to study the connection between drinking alcohol and ending up in the ER.
Alcohol makes people dumb. Dumb people make bad decisions. Dumb people hurt themselves. Dumb people sometimes end up in the ER. Can I get my government grant now?
6) $16,000,000 to improve the quality of schools… in Egypt.
Like with the Afghanistan point, why does THE U.S. have to pay for this? Shouldn’t the task of funding education in Egypt go to the Muslim Brotherhood, who control the nation? We have our own problems with the quality of our schools. Kids don’t even know WHY WE FOUGHT WORLD WAR II FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! THEY THINK WE DID IT TO GAIN OUR INDEPENDENCE! RASMUSSEN SAYS THAT 42% OF YOUNG PEOPLE SUPPORT SOCIALISM! Obviously, that last one is because of the Marxist professors and curricula that has deeply poisoned our education system, but still. Young Americans are airheads, for the most part, which is the precise reason Pelosi and Democrats want to lower the voting age to 16.
7) $33,921,175 to buy textbooks for students… in Afghanistan.
One thing I would like to ask is why it is we are still fighting a war there, 18 years after 9/11, when they get such nice, incredibly undeserved treatment from us. Like I said before, shouldn’t this type of stuff fall on the Afghanistan government to take care of? And if someone wants to argue “they’re too poor, they need help”, then why do We the People need to pay with our tax dollars? There are organizations out there that help with funding for school supplies, textbooks included, which are mostly funded by willing donations from people. Why do we have to foot the bill for the education of people who hate us?
8) $22,000,000 to bring Serbian cheese up to international standards.
Look, I like cheese as much as the next guy. But why in the world are we spending upwards of $20M to help Serbian farmers improve the standard of their cheese? Shouldn’t that fall on the farmers themselves if they hope to compete in the marketplace? Or, if you wish to go the socialist route, at the very least, shouldn’t the Serbian government be in charge of that if government assistance is so necessary? Why are we wasting $22M on cheese many of us will likely never have? I didn’t even know Serbia made their own particular kind of cheese! For all the money going to them, they better be able to compete with Kraft, or else, that is an even bigger waste of money.
In total, these things add up to $230,672,881 in unnecessary and highly wasteful spending. And before any liberals want to cry out to me “but Trump is President now! The spending is on him!” keep in mind that Congress has power of the purse, meaning that they decide what the federal budget would be for a particular year. The Washington Establishment rules in Congress, so they get to decide how much of our money to spend each year. If Trump vetoes those budgets, the government shuts down and we get weeks upon weeks of the media yelling that Trump is starving families and that whistleblowers get left out on the streets.
Want to know why our national debt is at $23 trillion? Because we are funding for research regarding making fish addicted to nicotine and trying to figure out why drunk people end up in the hospital so much. Things that either are ridiculous to fund or unnecessary, or both. If the idiots in Congress ever get the bright idea to stop wasting money on vanity projects like these, we would be an unstoppable juggernaut in the world, at least financially.
And sure, at the end of the day, $230M plus in a multi-trillion dollar federal budget isn’t much, but this only looks at a FEW things that the government unnecessarily wastes money on. This is far from the dumbest things the government funds, but is a small sample of those things.
War with Iran, North Korea, China, or Russia would not destroy us. Trade wars with China and Russia would not destroy us. Foreign interference into our elections wouldn’t destroy us. Wasteful spending like this, and particularly, the ramped up wasteful spending that the Left plans to do when they eventually win elections again, such as Medicare for All and GND, is what will destroy us.
We can’t continue spending money we don’t have. That’s simply not sustainable.

I wrote at the end of my previous article, the one discussing how Trump is not caving on the wall, that I might write an article discussing the various reasons not to allow any democrat to beat Trump in the 2020 Presidential election.
Well, here’s my list for as many reasons as I can think of (that won’t make this article as long as an encyclopedia because I could probably list many more reasons).
Reason number one: No matter who becomes the Democrat Party nominee, they are all basically the same. What do I mean by that? Well, unlike the Republican Party, which is stupidly split on a lot of issues such as immigration, healthcare and many other things, the Democrats, to their credit, actually know how to stay united.
They may debate with one another as to what might be the best option, but at the end of the day, they manage to come together and actually get things done in their agenda. And their agenda really differs little from person to person.
While Trump’s and Jeb’s, or Cruz’s, or Rubio’s agenda are fairly different, the Democrats all follow the Leftist agenda. Sure, one might prioritize something different from another, but it all leads them to the same place: the growing in size and scope of the government and their own power, while taking your freedoms away.
It doesn’t matter if they prioritize gun control, climate change, LGBT “rights”, healthcare, it all leads to the Left getting more and more power. Ultimately, these are all things every Leftist agrees on. So it doesn’t matter if Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Beto O’Rourke becomes President, they would all basically be the same and support the exact same things. There really is no good option among them, just the least likely to utterly screw over the country (and there is little difference in that area as well).
Reason number two: Just as Trump was able to dismantle Obama’s legacy, so would any Democrat be able to do that to Trump’s.
The unfortunate thing about the GOP stabbing Trump in the back repeatedly is that they don’t get much done. And what they get done can easily be overturned. And what is overturned, even if unconstitutionally, they will not seriously fight against. The proof is in the fact that they had ample opportunity in the past couple of years to get rid of Obamacare and did not bother to do so. As far as the tax cuts go, as good as those are, they can easily be taken away. With a Democrat running the country again, the GOP would do little to actually fight back, just like during the Obama years.
This means saying goodbye to our tax cuts and being faced with job-killing tax rates. It means the dismantling of our border. It means the ultimate destruction of our freedoms. Maybe not with the next Democrat President, but it would certainly lead to that in the future.
Reason number 3: We now know the Left’s true face. I often say that Trump’s election victory didn’t create this Leftist insanity, but it did let the mask slip from the Left’s face. In the past, the Left would at least pretend to be a little more reasonable. That is long gone now.
I’m not saying that had Hillary won, we would be in a better place. Far from it, the magnitude at which we’d be screwed is incalculable. Not to mention that the very reason Bernie Sanders felt confident to come out as socialist, and other people have felt confident to come out as socialist, is 8 years of Obama moving the needle of our country’s governmental system farther and farther to the Left.
Trump didn’t create Bernie Sanders or help Bernie come out as socialist, but it did get the Left to more aggressively embrace socialism. No, maybe not everyone on the Democrat Party is quite so willing to call themselves socialist, but that’s where they’re headed. If socialism is what sells and gets them votes, that’s what they’ll embrace (not that they weren’t embracing it before, but they were at least trying to not come right out as socialists).
This means implementing more and more socialist policies that will lead to the United States emulating China at the very least. Since we are still a super power and the wealthiest country in the world, we can take some hits, but if the trend goes farther and farther Left, we will eventually not be the wealthiest country in the world and we will quickly fall from grace as a super power.
Again, maybe not with the next immediate Democrat President, but that’s what it would lead to.
Reason number 4: there is no other Republican out there that has the cojones to do what Trump is trying to do.
One thing that we’ve all noticed in the past couple of years (and really throughout Obama’s tenure as well) is the fact that the GOP tends to be pretty chummy with the Democrat Party and often ignores the very constituents that elected them into power. In what can only be considered an abusive relationship, the GOP tries to appease Democrats and the media, all the while pretending to be fighting for something, but ultimately not getting anything done. Whenever the media calls them racist, they bow their heads in shame and say “I’m sorry, I will never do something like that again”. Regardless of what they do, it’s never enough for the Democrats and the media, with them demanding the Republicans hand over everything including the kitchen sink.
These past two years in particular have shown this level of cowardice. While not all Republicans are guilty of this, far too many have been complacent at the least. John McCain, up to his death, opposed Trump (and I imagine he was all too happy to have his funeral be a massive Trump-bashing fest). Jeff Flake is still a nuisance. Bob Corker ditto. And incoming GOPe (GOP establishment) people like Romney certainly will take up the mantle left behind by these people.
The evidence to this is clear when they made their best efforts to try and legitimize the illegitimate Mueller investigation, with Flake actually trying to pass legislation that protects the crooked prosecutor.
With Trump out of the picture, what Republican in Washington or in government in general would be willing to do what Trump’s been trying to do: take on the Deep State? I wouldn’t put my trust in Ted Cruz, as conservative as I think he is. Same goes for people like Rep. Mark Meadows or Rep. Jim Jordan, as good as I think they are (and they’re really trying to help Trump build the wall here).
Now, I know I said in a previous article that I did not picture Trump doing this back in 2014, two years before the 2016 election. So someone could potentially come up and try to take on the Deep State, but I don’t think there’s much of a chance of that. Even less that they’d succeed at any capacity.
Not trying to be pessimistic here, just trying to highlight the importance of helping Trump win in 2020.
The next Democrat President, whether he or she comes into power after 2020, 2024, 2028, or whatever, will most likely be the most Leftist and socialist President we will ever have seen. One who would make Obama look like Reagan by comparison. And the ones to follow the next Democrat POTUS will only move the line farther to the Left until we reach the end: complete and total communism.
Even if Republican Presidents were to be elected in between those Democrats, there’d be little they could do, even if they were willing to.
This is why it’s so important that we help Trump win 2020 no matter what. Of course, not building a wall would be a huge detriment, but that’d still be no reason to allow a Democrat to take over, ensuring that the borders get even less security and more lives grow at stake.
It’s also why it’s so important to elect truly conservative, truly CHRISTIAN people to government and to get truly conservative and truly CHRISTIAN SCOTUS justices.
For as much as I talked about Kavanaugh being conservative and a Christian, I might have to eat my own words, given what he’s done so far. Of course, there is still a possibility for redemption for him (both in terms of redeeming himself to conservatives and being redeemed by Christ), so I’m not quite ready to say he was a mistake of a pick (Amy Coney Barrett wouldn’t have done what Kavanaugh did, though), but he’s got a lot to make up for.
If we can get more and more conservatives and Christians into power, then there is a chance at truly defeating the Left, but that will have to come with a complete Christian revival and the ability and willingness to go after the Deep State’s crookedness, not just in calling them out over it, but to execute justice as well.
Trump won’t be around forever. Unlike Xi Jinping, Trump can’t declare himself President For Life (I imagine a future Democrat President would try that, though). So once Trump is gone from office, what comes after? That’s something we have to come to answer sooner rather than later, because for as much as I hope and think Trump can be re-elected, there is a chance he won’t be.
When the time comes for him to leave office, we will have to brace ourselves for what would come after. And there is no better way to do that than to consult and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
You see, while I’ve given a few reasons to not allow the Democrats to beat Trump in 2020 (and I think there are a bunch more, but I don’t want to make this article too long), the matter of fact is that I’m probably right about what would come with a Trump defeat. As a result, nothing good will be brought about, and we could well be facing the beginning of the end of America as we know it (unless we have the aforementioned Christian revival, but God knows if or when that would happen).
That’s not to say there wouldn’t be a United States of America in, say, 50 or 100 years, but it would be practically unrecognizable from the one that was founded.
But the good news about even such a scenario happening is that we are not only citizens of the United States, but also citizens of the Kingdom of God. I saw this often during both the 2012 election and 2016 election (and I’ll probably also see it in 2020), but I remember a post that read “regardless of who’s President, Jesus is King,” or something to that nature. And it’s true.
Jesus was King before America was founded. He has been King for as long as America has been around, and He will be King after America falls.
One of the main objectives of this site has been to try to direct people to Christ. Though I don’t always get to that point, I think I really should start doing this far more often. Because the unfortunate reality is that, eventually, one of these lunatics is going to be in the White House. As a result, we really must brace for what is to come. And there is no better way to brace for disaster than in the comfort of Christ.
My mission is not just to fight for the survival of America, which really is only a secondary mission, but to also fight for the survival and growth of Christianity; helping as many people to receive Christ as I possibly can.
So that’s the good news regardless of what may happen from here on out. Even if evil wins against America, Jesus has already won against evil. That being said, I think we all should try and fight against the evil that wishes to destroy America. Though that really goes without saying.

I had written an article fairly similar to this one back in September of 2017 after Trump reportedly made a deal with Schumer and Pelosi regarding DACA that excluded the wall (and such a report was later debunked). So we’ve been here before, with conservatives and Trump supporters sitting at the edge of the cliff believing that they’re being thrown over. I can tell you right now, relax. Allow me to explain the situation.
This time is different from the September article because that article talked about an MSM report about Trump caving on the wall, which I explained why that was bogus. The way it’s different this time is that Trump himself tweeted something that, at first glance, can be seen as potentially caving (if you don’t look at the other things the Trump administration is saying, of course). But even in those tweets, you can also see that he is not caving on the wall.
Here are the tweets that I’m sure you’ve seen float around if you have a Twitter account and are following Donald Trump: “The Democrats, are saying loud and clear that they do not want to build a Concrete Wall – but we are not building a Concrete Wall, we are building artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it…” “…It will be beautiful and, at the same time, give our Country the security that our citizens deserve. It will go up fast and save us BILLIONS of dollars a month once completed!”
At first glance, it certainly looks like Trump is caving on the wall. Literally saying “we are not building a Concrete Wall” will naturally and understandably lead people to think he’s caving. But here’s the thing: a concrete wall would be next to useless and worthless to have at the Southern Border.
First, a concrete wall is not see-through, so you can’t see people coming on the other side unless you get a lot more Border Patrol agents. Having a see-through steel slat wall is far more cost-effective and effective in general.
Second, a concrete wall is not indestructible. Matter of fact, it wouldn’t take all that much to break through or dig through or simply blow it up. And since you can’t see through it, you don’t have much of a chance to catch anyone trying anything there.
Now, I can definitely understand why there are Trump supporters out there who legitimately think he’s caving. When Trump first brought up the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall”, I think a lot of people had a pretty good idea as to what it would look like: a concrete, stone or even steel wall (not see-through) that is pretty much similar to a prison wall (only instead of keeping people in, it keeps people out).
Or at the very least, a wall that is similar to the one in Israel that separates them from the Palestinian terrorists trying to invade and destroy Israel in the West Bank.
Here’s the thing about that: Israel’s wall is covering the border between Israel and the West Bank, with 272 miles already finished (as of 2011), 36 miles under construction (as of 2011) and 132 miles planned (as of 2011). In total, that’s a planned wall that covers 440 miles. Of course, Israel has more than just the West Bank to worry about in terms of border security, but in other areas, such as in its border with Egypt, they have chosen to build up fences that are reportedly more effective than ours, according to the Washington Examiner.
440 miles along the West Bank in comparison to around 2,000 miles in our southern border. Pretty big difference.
Now, returning to Trump himself, there’s more to look at than just the tweets. Yes, the tweets could bring people to the wrong conclusion, but it’s definitely that: the WRONG conclusion.
Sarah Sanders and Trump have said as much that they were looking for other ways to fund the wall, at least $5 billion to start it, apart from having to deal with the Democrats. That’s not caving, that’s having a plan B.
Democrats are most likely not going to give Trump any money for a border wall, and Trump himself is acutely aware of that. As a result, in order to fulfill the biggest promise he made during the campaign, he’s looking at other options to get the wall funded, such as signing an executive order and having the military pay for the wall.
Trump looking for ways to build the wall that don’t lead to a government shutdown (which I would be okay with) is not an indication of Trump caving on the wall whatsoever.
Now, I can understand people’s frustrations here. The best chance we have at building the wall is with a Republican Congress, which we will only have for a few more weeks. Personally, I wish I had not expected so much out of traitorous RINOs like McCain and Paul Ryan because if we did not fund a wall in the first two years of Trump’s presidency, we won’t likely fund the wall in the next few weeks either.
But that doesn’t fall on Trump’s feet. It falls on the Republican Establishment being unwilling to listen to their constituents… again. The real ire ought to fall on the Republican Establishment that kept Obamacare funded, kept Planned Parenthood funded, and kept our borders unsecured.
Trump is fighting with these guys when he should only be fighting with Democrats. Of course, I do think Trump has the ability to do more than he’s doing right now, but any sort of anguish directed at him is really misplaced.
I’m not saying he doesn’t make mistakes. I think that Omnibus bill he signed was a pretty big one. But the real people that should be earning people’s scorn are people like Paul Ryan, who was Democrats’ best friend throughout these last two years, even when he got none of the credit and he was still attacked because he had an “R” next to his name. People like John McCain who, up to the moment he died, was a big obstructionist holding the Republican Party hostage (let’s not forget he was the deciding factor in not repealing and replacing Obamacare). People like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker who decided to switch sides under the guise of “country over party” which is a massive sham.
Trump is not caving on the wall. He’s not a quitter. Watching The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, one recurring theme throughout the seasons that I’ve watched is that he hates it when someone just decides to quit or doesn’t give their best efforts. He hates quitters, so he would not be willing to quit himself.
But again, there’s really no actual and substantial indication that he is caving or quitting in any way. He has a tough job ahead of him and many in the Republican Party like the aforementioned people (except McCain at this point, but Romney will replace him in this obstructionist capacity in the new Congress) are all too happy to stab him in the back on this issue and let the blame fall on him… and it seems to be working, sadly.
So no, Trump’s not caving on the wall. I think he may have thought that once he became President that everyone would automatically love and support him, particularly on the wall. But he soon came to the realization there are seriously depraved and evil S.O.B’s out there in Washington.
And unfortunately, Democrats took control of the House, so there is not much chance at all that the wall will be built through Congress once the new Congress assembles, which is largely the reason for Trump to be looking for another way to get the wall.
It certainly won’t be easy to get it done and we might even have to wait until after the 2020 election to get a wall funded (hopefully it won’t come to that). But under such circumstance, the choice still remains pretty clear. It’s either the chance at building a wall with a newly re-elected and re-inaugurated Trump or zero chance at building a wall with a newly elected and newly inaugurated President Bernie Sanders, or President Joe Biden or whoever wins the Democrat nomination.
I’m not saying this is a good position to be in – it’s certainly not. But unfortunately, it might well come to that and we have to be ready to face reality.
Like during the midterms, I’ll take Republicans sometimes doing something good over Democrats purging this country from its foundation and turning it into something it was never intended to become: another China, Soviet Russia, Cuba or Venezuela.
I could write every single reason not to allow any Democrat to beat Trump (something both Trump supporters and NeverTrump conservatives should consider), but that will have to wait for another time. As it is, the main point to take away from this article is right in the title: Trump is NOT giving up on the wall. Whether he succeeds or not is a different story, but I think he can do it. We just need to pray to God that we can overcome the evils of the Left.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

Last Friday, despite having promised to vote in favor of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to make him a Supreme Court Justice, Sen. Jeff “Snow” Flake (R-AZ) asked that a one-week FBI investigation on the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh be made before they hold the vote they were originally going to hold the week prior to the last.
Can’t say I’m surprised by Flake’s decision to Flake out of the vote, having talked with Democrats shortly before making this request. While Lindsey Graham seems to have turned over a new leaf (I operate under the Reagan motto of “trust, but verify” with him), Jeff Flake is being his same spineless self.
Let me tell you why an FBI investigation is entirely irrelevant in this case, particularly after Dr. Ford’s hearing.
First and foremost, it’s simply a delay tactic. Have you ever heard of an FBI investigation starting, investigating and wrapping something up in a week? I never have. The FBI investigating Dr. Ford’s allegations would definitely take longer than a week. After a week of investigating, they wouldn’t find anything substantial, so they would likely need more time to investigate, thus further delaying the vote.
It’s also a delay tactic in that the Left can definitely find another woman who wishes to be a hero to the Left and accuse Kavanaugh of something horrific. And if/when they do, then obviously, they would need the FBI to look into that, further delaying the vote.
Second, it’s not within the FBI’s jurisdiction to investigate this sort of thing. They investigate federal crimes, not local ones. So the only law enforcement agency that can investigate this is the police department of the area the party took place.
Third, the FBI has already extensively vetted Kavanaugh and not one of these stories ever came up. By the looks of things, every allegation has people there to witness and corroborate the occurrence. No one ever mentioned anything like this and I would seriously doubt everyone Kavanaugh went to school with and everyone he knew was a staunch conservative who would support him or even go as far as to lie to the FBI to protect him if they saw him do what he’s accused of.
Fourth and finally, the FBI would get no farther than the Senate Judiciary Committee has in investigating this matter. Dr. Ford does not remember the time or the place of the alleged groping. Every witness Dr. Ford brought up has either denied such party even happening or being there to witness the alleged sexual assault. Not to mention this happened well over 30 years ago, so any search would likely come up fruitless.
If you go to the FBI with the story that you were sexually assaulted, but offer no evidence at all, offer no witness that can corroborate your story and cannot offer even the basic information of the where and when of the assault, the investigation ends before it even began. There’s just not enough there to begin an investigation, let alone conduct one and complete one.
For anyone to request or demand an FBI investigation into the matter is indicative of the kind of mentality they have: delay this vote until Kavanaugh is destroyed or pulls out. No rational and logical person would believe the FBI could do much here, let alone demand they do something.
Flake’s request that the FBI investigate this matter is not sane, it’s not justice for Dr. Ford or any of the accusers. It’s his final betrayal to the United States as an outgoing Senator, given his approval numbers are so low he could not even hope to run in his own state. Ironically, it’s this kind of crap that plunged his numbers in the first place.
But my overall point is that it was always irrelevant for the FBI to investigate this, but particularly so after Thursday’s testimony from Dr. Ford. She offered no more evidence than she did in her letter to Feinstein or in the days and weeks running up to the vote. In the meantime, more and more women stepped forth to accuse him of even more unbelievable and uncorroborated crap, all of which the Left and now Flake are demanding be investigated by the FBI.
Again, with what little information Dr. Ford and the other accusers (one of which is anonymous) have given, an investigation cannot actually be made, especially for Dr. Ford’s accusation, which is at the center of this whole thing.
It especially cannot be made in the span of a single week. That’s ludicrous. The FBI and Special Counsel have spent roughly a year and a half and longer investigating Trump-Russia collusion and have found nothing substantial. And that’s still ongoing, though falling apart as it may be.
So the FBI absolutely cannot investigate anything in a single week even with more information than what they would be given. Which means this investigation is not made to find out the truth. Ford’s hearing on Thursday supposedly was about finding out the truth and nothing was learned that was not already known.
This investigation is not meant to find out the truth but to delay the vote as much as they can. I would be naïve to believe that another delay would not be called. And then another. And then another.
But even with all of this b.s. going on, I will still vote Republican in November. Not because I appreciate what the establishment Republicans are doing. I abhor it. But rather because I do not want to be in this position or in a worse position after November.
What I mean by that is that we need to flood the Senate with Republicans. Right now, we depend too much on too few people who can change their mind on a whim and side with the Left. With more Republicans in the Senate (and the House, but that’s another story), we would likely have more dependable people to vote for things that are favorable to the country and against things that are not favorable to us.
Yes, there would still be establishment people like Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, etc., but there would be more conservatives in the mix as well.
Not to mention that there’s no way I would allow the alternative to take over the country. The alternative, of course, being Democrats who will likely fully and openly embrace socialism to the level of Nazism and punish all of us who dared defy the entitled brats in the Establishment.
I’m already energized to vote Republican, but if the GOP Establishment fails to confirm Kavanaugh, I will be voting with a vengeance. But not in favor of Democrats, that’d be actual insanity. Rather, voting for Republicans who will not betray the people they are representing.
We need to drain the swamp at all levels of the government. Pronto.

It’s been reported lately that the FBI had planted a spy in the Trump campaign, further signifying the Deep State’s desire to get rid of Donald Trump before he was even President. Even as a candidate, he posed a threat to the Establishment, which is a no no, in their minds.
Trump even tweeted: “Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true – all time biggest political scandal!”
So, in a flimsy attempt of damage control, the fake news media, particularly the Washington Post and NYT, released stories saying the FBI’s intentions were to “protect” Trump, not spy on him.
The Washington Post’s headline: “The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him.”
Really? Let me ask how this line would hold up: “You got it all wrong, Your Honor. I didn’t rob that bank to steal the money; I robbed the bank to keep the money from being stolen by other people.” Or “You’re wrong, Mr. Principal. I didn’t stuff little Jimmy in a locker to be mean to him. I stuffed him in there to protect him from other bullies.”
The Post article was written by, well, what do you know, a former FBI agent. It reads: “Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously – perhaps too cautiously – to protect the campaign not undermine it.”
Oh, so the FBI was only trying to protect the Trump campaign? From foreign intelligence? How nice of them. But let me ask one question: if the FBI was only looking to protect the Trump campaign from foreign intelligence, why didn’t they do the same with the Clinton campaign?
Why didn’t they plant a spy in the Clinton campaign as well? If the sole purpose of the FBI spy was to look into foreign intelligence in order to protect a campaign, why not do it for both campaigns? Surely Obama would be more interested in protecting the Clinton campaign than the Trump campaign. Why would he only “help” Trump’s campaign and not Hillary’s? Does he not like Hillary? Did he want her to lose? Why only put a spy in Trump’s campaign if the entire reason for a spy was for national security reasons?
Of course, you and I both know the answer to these questions. The FBI didn’t spy on the Trump campaign to protect it. They were spying on it to destroy it, if at all possible. Which clearly didn’t work.
Now, what did the NYT say about this? Here’s their headline: “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.”
If the FBI knew the Trump campaign had ties to Russia, wouldn’t that have made a major headline at some point during the election? This whole “Russia ties to Trump” only started AFTER Trump won, not before. If the FBI had even somewhat of a hunch that Trump had ties to Russia, it would certainly have leaked to the press.
The funny thing is that the Times says this: “Details about the informant’s relationship with the FBI remain scant. It is not clear how long the relationship existed and whether the FBI paid the source or assigned the person to other cases.”
So the MSM has next to no facts regarding the FBI spy, his or her relationship with the FBI, or the information he or she gathered, but still wants to say the intentions were only to protect Trump.
Read those headlines again. They read matter-of-factly, don’t they? As if to say: “No, Trump. You’re wrong! The FBI was only trying to protect you because they’re the good guys and were only looking into your ties to Russia. They were not focused on you.”
Those are CLAIMS the Post and NYT are making, and yet, both are entirely wrong based on fact and logic.
Again, if the purpose of having a spy in the Trump campaign was to investigate possible ties to Russia in order to protect the campaign, why wouldn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign?
So far, without having the FBI or a special counsel looking into it, we have found far more evidence of the Clinton campaign rigging the 2016 election (both for the primaries and the general election). We have found more Russian collusion within the Clinton campaign. We have found more foreign intelligence used against Trump than we have found foreign intelligence used against Hillary. Remember Christopher Steele? The author of the Golden Showers dossier? British.
If the FBI felt it necessary to spy on the Trump campaign to protect it from foreign entities, why didn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign? And if people in the Clinton campaign knew the campaign was dealing with foreign entities, why didn’t they blow the whistle or inform the FBI or DOJ? If such a thing is a threat to the campaign, why wouldn’t they talk?
I feel it’s unnecessary to be asking all of these questions when the answer is as clear as glass. The FBI wasn’t looking to protect Trump – but rather destroy him. The FBI didn’t put a spy in the Clinton campaign because Clinton is part of the Establishment. You don’t go about spying on your own people like that. And even if you do, you certainly don’t bring what they are doing to people’s attention, much less prosecute or bash them for it.
This is the Deep State we are talking about. The Obama DOJ. The Obama FBI. There was no justice with Obama’s DOJ and FBI – only corruption.
Even then, I find it hard to use the word “corruption”. It’s the Deep State. There is no corruption there. Why? Because you can’t corrupt what was never honest. What was never moral. What was never right. Frankly, corruption within the Deep State would mean delineating from the status quo of the Establishment, which no member does.
The Establishment, for as long as it’s been around, has always been immoral. Its very definition is unjust. And they could never allow someone like Trump to be in power. Never mind what they think of him. Never mind that they believe he is brutish and stupid. That’s not what bothers them. Frankly, they are ok with brutish and stupid people. The elected bunch of the Deep State DEPENDS on brutish and stupid people. No, what they truly hate the guy for, what drives them to destroy him isn’t his attitude or behavior or demeanor. It’s his status as an outsider.
A man who has lived his entire life as an outsider cannot be allowed to come in and run the place. He’s meant to stay an outsider. He’s meant to remain out of power. He’s meant to deal with the things THEY want to implement on people, whatever strikes their fancy. He’s meant to SUBMIT to the Deep State as pretty much everyone else is meant to. And he’s not supposed to call them out. He’s not supposed to let people know that there are people in power with more control than civilians believe.
It’s those things that tick off the Deep State the most. The fact that he’s an outsider coming in and not only running the place, but doing it SUCCESSFULLY AND WITH TONS OF SUPPORT. But perhaps what ticks them off the most is not just that he’s an outsider. It’s that they haven’t beaten him thus far.
Every attempt at thwarting him, destroying him and his reputation, has resulted in utter failure. The Establishment has never had so much trouble getting rid of someone in the past. They would either convert them and make them part of the Establishment, like with Lindsay Graham, or scare them into silence.
Not one of their tactics has worked so far, and that is what annoys them the most.
So, they do what they can with what they’ve got. They spy on their opponent and disregard any consequence that may follow in their public view. They don’t honestly care. They want Trump gone through whatever means necessary.
The only problem with that is what happens if they succeed. If they take out Trump through illegitimate means, that will enrage much of America. No Democrat would be elected for a generation. And if they take out Pence as well, let me tell you, there is a reason the 2nd Amendment still exists.
While I hope it never comes to it, if pushed around enough, the American people will take up arms against a tyrannical government once again.
That being said, there isn’t much, if any, indication of such a thing coming to pass. Like I said, the Deep State’s attempts at destroying Trump have all ended in failure. Not to mention that the more they fight him, the more people will be willing to support him. Meaning, the more people will be willing to vote Democrats (and RINOs) out of Congress. That only chips away at the power and influence they have.
Regardless, with all of that said, it’s honestly funny seeing the MSM trying to defend the FBI’s actions in such a way. First of all, those actions are indefensible. Second, those headlines indicate a very flimsy attempt at defending this. Honestly, who would believe this garbage?
Well, to their credit, it’s entirely possible that more people will honestly believe this trash than their attempts at protecting MS-13.
“Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
One rather major theme this past year has been that the media wishes to portray Trump as a very unpopular and toxic president. That whoever he endorses in elections would be destined to lose, simply because of such an endorsement. However, this past weekend, an ABC network analyst, Cokie Roberts, admitted that “it will be hard to defeat [Moore] in the general election.”
Here’s specifically what she said: “[Trump] doesn’t have to go to Alabama. He’s done plenty for Roy Moore. Moore can put it in his ads, which he’s doing. He’s clearly got the endorsement of President Trump. Without the endorsement of President Trump, he won the primary. I think with the endorsement of President Trump, it will be hard to defeat him in the general election.”
Now THAT I did not see coming. A network analyst for a major fake news source admits that Trump’s endorsement of Moore makes it more difficult for the Democrat candidate to win? THEY NEVER DO THESE KINDS OF THINGS!
In the Left’s own little world, they assume every Democrat candidate everwhere is going to win either in a rather close race or a landslide victory. So for one of these people to admit that TRUMP’S endorsement of a Republican candidate makes things HARDER for Democrats is shocking.
Now, I do agree that Trump’s endorsement of Moore certainly helps. But even without it, I’m entirely confident Moore will defeat his opponent, Doug Jones.
Why? A couple of reasons, actually.
First, with the constant attacks against Moore, all the attention of the voters in Alabama has gone to him. Fake allegation after fake allegation, conservative voters in Alabama are doing with Moore what American voters have been doing with Trump: get even closer to him.
Trump proved himself to be a massive threat to the Left, resulting in the onslaught of attacks made against him before and after the elections. Every time they’ve attacked him, his base and supporters have only grown closer to him. We see the same with Moore.
Moore is proving himself to be a massive threat to the Left as well. In their desire to destroy him, they’ve only made him more powerful. Truth be told, before the allegations, I still would’ve voted for him simply because he’s a Christian and conservative. But now, I’m PASSIONATE about voting for him. And that’s simply because the Left made it known that they do not want him in Congress. And if the Left doesn’t want him in Congress this badly, I WANT HIM IN CONGRESS JUST AS BADLY!
But that’s only one of the reasons I think he’ll beat Doug Jones.
The second reason is that Alabama is a very Christian state. Christians tend to not be in favor of abortion or those who promote or accept abortion. Doug Jones believes that abortion should be an option until A BABY IS BORN!
Meaning that at any point in the 9 month pregnancy, Doug Jones believes it’s ok to kill the child. Even though a fetus can survive outside of its mother’s womb after 5 or 6 months, even then it doesn’t have a right to life according to Jones.
This very issue can boil any Christian’s blood. And as I’ve told you in the past, 86% of people in Alabama as of 2014 identify as Christian. It would be insanely difficult for anyone to run on “I think killing babies inside the womb at any point in time is ok” in Alabama and win a majority vote. Alabama is LIGHT YEARS away from California by that standard.
Now, I can see why Cokie Roberts believes it’s difficult to defeat Moore. Aside from Trump’s endorsement, Moore is basically the Senatorial candidate version of Trump. They both believe in many of the same things and hope to achieve many of the same things in their positions. They both want to Make America Great Again in every way they possibly can.
They both have been viciously attacked by the Left and the fake news media. They both have passionate supporters behind them due to those very attacks. They both wish to drain the swamp. They both want to Make America OURS Again.
They both have faced Establishment opposition who wish to maintain the status quo and keep America for themselves. They both seek to defeat said opposition at every turn they can.
Cokie Roberts is entirely right (something I thought I’d never say of someone from a fake news network). It will be very difficult for Democrats to win in Alabama. But that’s nothing new. Like I said in a previous article, Alabama has voted solidly Republican since Reagan. For the longest time, Democrats have had a difficult time winning in Alabama. It’s no different now.
Of course, I can’t see into the future. I can’t definitely tell you that Moore will win. But I personally have no doubt that he’s in prime position to win. Of course, the GOP will likely look to expel him and deny Alabama voters their preferred candidate, but that’s an issue to tackle after the election.
And I can assure you, I will be on top of that when and if it happens.
But for now, I shall enjoy the fact that even someone from a fake news source comes to the realization that the Democrats will likely experience yet another loss in a significant election.

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.”
Author: Freddie Drake.
One of the biggest news pieces this week (aside from the seemingly endless stream of Hollywood elites being exposed as predators) has been the hit pieces against Judge Roy Moore (R), who is running for a Senate seat for Alabama in December.
The hit pieces, of course, include the allegations made by the Left that Moore had an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old girl 40 years ago. Given just how Christian and conservative Roy Moore is, I can see why the Left feels the necessity to smear him. They are afraid of him.
Let me leave you with some food for thought: if Roy Moore did really do that 40 years ago, how come we’re only finding this out now when he’s running as a Republican for Senate? He was a Democrat before switching to the Republican Party, much akin to Reagan. In those 40 years, I imagine he’s had a share of political opponents. So why now? Why are people saying this now, a month before the Alabama elections?
Because he’s a threat to a Democrat Party that has been almost completely dismantled.
And do you want to know what’s funny? Check out this article published by the Washington Post: “Roy Moore is unfit to serve.”
Gee, where have I heard that before? You’d think that, after Trump’s crushing victory over Hillary Clinton, the Left would at least TRY to adopt different political strategies and attacks. Throughout the election, they called Trump “unfit to serve”. Calling him delusional, crazy and unstable. Yet, he won. So why do they think this would work on other Christian conservatives?
Granted, the Democrat Party is using the same playbook that’s often times won them elections. But with Trump’s victory, that playbook is quickly becoming outdated. It’s the equivalent to running the Triangle Offense in today’s NBA: it just doesn’t work anymore.
And now, a genius at the Washington Post decided to use the same words they used to describe Trump with? Brilliant.
But what exactly does the article say? Well, it begins with this: “Alabama voters will pick a new senator in December, and their choice is between one of the most divisive, counterproductive figures in U.S. politics and a well-qualified, even-tempered former prosecutor. In other words, there is no choice. Former Judge Roy Moore (R) is unfit to serve. Former prosecutor Doug Jones (D) would be a credit to the state.”
Ha! Good one. Notice the specific words the writer chooses to describe Moore. Do they sound familiar to you? “Divisive and counterproductive.” Doesn’t that sound like they’re describing Trump?
And it just keeps getting better. “… electing Mr. Moore would be a sure way to worsen Washington’s problems. His unapologetic extremism would pour gasoline on the already raging fire of partisanship and dysfunction.”
It’s like they’re ENDORSING Moore at this point. They call him an extremist, and you know what that means whenever a Leftist calls a conservative “extremist”. They say he’s unapologetic about it and that it would “worsen Washington’s problems.”
But you see, THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WE WANT HIM THERE! Ever since the election of Trump, the Establishment has been trying to essentially put out a fire in Washington. Electing Roy Moore would be like pouring gasoline on it. But that’s the thing: THAT’S WHAT WE WANT!
Now, to any Leftists reading this, don’t misconstrue what I’m saying. I’m not saying I want anarchy and chaos running around in Washington. I’m saying that I want the Washington Establishment to essentially burn to the ground. I want it destroyed. I want for it to cease to exist, or at least be rendered entirely powerless.
Electing Roy Moore would be a step towards Making America Great Again. It would mean that the Washington Establishment has one less vote to kill the Trump agenda. It would mean one more vote towards repealing Obamacare, passing tax reform (in the likelihood that it won’t happen this year), passing a better spending bill and BUILDING THE WALL!
And the WaPo article even dares bring the Founding Fathers into this conversation. The article reads: “[Moore] called for a de facto religious test when he argued that Muslims elected to represent their communities should not be seated in Congress. This would have appalled the Founding Fathers and should alarm believers of all stripes.”
Really? That would’ve alarmed the Founding Fathers? Arguing that members of a death cult should not be in Congress would alarm the Founding Fathers, but outrageous increases in the size of government, increases in government spending, government-funded abortion clinics, gay marriage, transgender “rights” debates and a call for sweeping gun control wouldn't alarm them? Give me a break. Must I remind this ignoramus that our Founding Fathers were CHRISTIANS?!
And the writer of this article thinks that these are reasons to not elect him? Does he even know who the target audience is? Hint: it’s not Leftist Virginia, New Jersey or New York. It’s ALABAMA! A state where, according to Wikipedia, 86% of people in Alabama (as of 2014) identify as CHRISTIAN! A state where Trump won 62% of the vote! A state that has voted solidly Republican since REAGAN!
That’s why I’m saying that the WaPo article is inadvertently making the best case for Roy Moore. He’s solidly Christian! Solidly conservative! And attacking those very things won’t get the Left anywhere.
Why else do you think they’re trying to pin him with allegations that supposedly took place 40 YEARS AGO! Because they can’t realistically try to beat him with anything else, and even this will end with failure.
This is roughly the same tactic they tried on Trump. Three weeks before the election, the Left had women accusing Trump of sexually assaulting them years prior. The details of the accusations are different but the overall message is the same: don’t vote for this guy because he’s a sexual predator.
If that tactic didn’t work on Trump, it surely won’t work on Moore. But I’m glad to see them try. Because it just goes to show all Alabama voters just how much of a threat Moore is to the Left. The more the Left attacks him, the more I like him.

Author: Freddie Drake.
You’ve read my previous article on this topic. I focused mostly on the Democrat winner of the election and how the Left thinks that this is a major push against the President and his policies and agenda.
I also explained how that is not the case, but I’ll explain that in greater detail in this article.
I usually answer a title question later in the article, but in this case, I shall begin the article with the answer and explain why my answer is correct as we go along, with the help of a Breitbart article I’ve recently read.
Now, who exactly lost on Election Day 2017? Well, the easiest answer would be “Republicans.” But that’s only half right. Yes, Democrats won in Virginia, New Jersey and New York. Even a Transgender “woman” defeated the Republican incumbent in Virginia, which goes to show just how Leftist they are turning.
But why do I say that the answer is only half right? Because the actual loser of the elections is the Republican Establishment, not Republicans as a whole.
Ed Gillespie ran a campaign that didn’t embrace Trump or his policies until it was too late. And by that point, embracing such policies seemed insincere and like he was only doing it for the votes – which he was.
And so, Breitbart published an article titled: “What GOP Must Learn From The 12 Reasons Virginia Went Democrat In 2017.”
According to Breitbart, the 12 reasons Virginia went Democrat are:
The article also covers three reasons why all is not lost for the GOP, saying that “The Left is already overreaching… Most Democrats’ 2018 and 2020 candidates will not resemble Northam” and that “Republicans might be turning the corner.”
But that’s where they’re wrong. All IS lost for the GOP. For a long time now (since long before Trump was even President), I had one concise thought in my mind about the Republican Party: They will never win another election again if their candidate is Establishment. And looking back, I know I was right then, just as much as I am now. After 8 years of Obama, and just one year of Trump, we can see the Establishment for who they are. They pretended to fight for what Americans want, “trying” to repeal Obamacare, knowing that Obama would veto it every time. And now, they have the votes and a President who will sign the same bills they wanted when Obama was President and they just don’t want to do it.
More than that, they’re not even pretending to be on Americans’ side anymore. They are proudly and unabashedly against Trump and his agenda. They will announce ahead of time their plans to kill any effort to repeal Obamacare in any way, any effort to bring about good tax reform and just about any effort that would Make America Great Again. Why? Because they HATE America just as much as the Left does. They don’t want to Make America Great Again. They want to Make America THEIRS Again.
They want America to belong to the Washington Establishment again. To the Elites in Washington again.
They. Want. To. Be. Kings.
Any effort to Make America Great Again will be halted and killed by the Establishment. Do you want to know why I wasn’t sad or annoyed that Democrats won November 7? Because they were going to win no matter what. Their opposition was nothing more than a charade. They had not true opposition.
Obama had no true opposition in 2008 or 2012. McCain is an Establishment lifer. An elite among elites. The head of the Republican effort to impede Trump. Romney is less talked about only because he isn’t in the spotlight as much as McCain. They were both more than ok with Obama winning. They were both HOPING that Hillary would win.
It’s not that they’re spineless. It’s not that they don’t have guts. It’s that they’re evil. They have hatred and evil in their hearts. They put on a show in front of people, pretending they’re opposing the Democrats and promising the American people that they will fight their hardest to repeal Obamacare, smiling as they say those things – not because they’re sincere, but because they’re devious. They smile because they know that they’re tricking people – deceiving them.
The Breitbart article ends with: “… it is possible that enough politicians are figuring out that the MAGA agenda… may be the key to their success in 2018 and 2020.” That’s certainly something to take away from the Republicans’ losses. That people running for office should embrace the MAGA agenda. But Establishment Republicans would rather lose to Democrats (other Establishment politicians) than allow Trump to win any more than he already has.
Come 2018, it’s entirely likely that we’ll begin to see the Republican Party being destroyed. Not because Democrats will defeat them, but because actual pro-Trump and pro-America people will defeat them.
As voters, we’ll do our best to Make America Great Again, and that includes voting for people who’ll strive to do that.
The draining of the swamp has only just begun.

The President had recently endorsed Sen. Luther Strange for election to the U.S. Senate later this year. Strange had replaced Jeff Sessions when he was appointed by the President to be Attorney General.
But even though Luther Strange lost his Party’s nomination for Congress (now, the race is between (R) Roy Moore and (D) Doug Jones) and was endorsed by the President, this is not really a loss for the POTUS.
Luther Strange was the Establishment candidate for Congress between him and Moore. And Strange is the sitting senator, who will stay there until a new candidate is elected in December. So, for as long as Strange is there, Trump wants to be on his good side. For as long as Strange is in Congress, he will count as one vote to help Trump pass legislation. And Trump wants Congress to pass the Graham-Cassidy bill which will do a little bit to repeal and replace Obamacare (though not too much). That’s really the BIGGEST and likely ONLY reason he chose to endorse Strange as opposed to Moore.
And even though Moore is against the bill for not being conservative enough (and I agree), his primary election victory is actually very good for Trump. No, Trump didn’t endorse him, but he knows what Moore wants. And he, too, wants to Make America Great Again.
Moore was called the “more conservative” candidate and for good reason. According to the Washington Post, “In three books, Moore has described his legal opinion that the United States was founded a Christian nation that ultimately answered to the ‘laws of nature and nature’s God.’… As a judge, Moore refused to obey a federal court order to remove from his courthouse a monument to the Ten Commandments he had installed to underscore his belief. He was removed from his job as a result.”
So he agrees with us that this country was founded A CHRISTIAN NATION and that our laws are based off of God’s laws. And when he was removed from his job for defying the court order to remove the Ten Commandments, he followed one of God’s rules! Acts 5:29: “But Peter and the apostles answered: ‘we must obey God rather than men.’”
So he knows that God’s law is far more important to follow than any country’s law. Which brings us to another time that he was removed from his post. According to the Washington Post: “In a 2002 legal opinion, he described homosexual conduct as ‘an inherent evil’, and he has argued that the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage should not be considered the rule of law.” So he’s AGAINST the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage and believes that homosexual conduct is inherently evil.
So, he’s very clearly a conservative and someone I can get behind. He’s very clearly a Christian and someone who wants our nation to go back to our Christian roots. In his victory speech after the primary election, he said: “We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress. We have become a nation that has distanced ourselves from the very foundation.”
Do you know what that sounds like to me? He seems like he wants to Make America Great Again. And part of Making America Great Again includes Making America Christian Again. Making America God’s Again. So that we can truly say “God bless America”.
So then why would people think that Moore’s election victory is a loss to Trump? According to CNN, Trump was infuriated that he backed the loser of the election. “Returning from a high-dollar fundraiser in Manhattan on Tuesday evening, an infuriated President Donald Trump watched aboard Air Force One as Fox News called the Alabama Senate primary for Roy Moore against Trump’s favored candidate, Luther Strange.”
Really, “infuriated”? Then how do you explain that he said that he “might have made a mistake” at a STRANGE rally the Friday before the election? According to the Washington Post: “If Moore won the primary, Trump said to applause, ‘I’m going to be here campaigning like hell for him.’” That doesn’t sound like someone who would be too heartbroken about his endorsed candidate losing.
Trump knows that Moore is one of the good guys. He’s anti-establishment, Christian and very conservative. And he KNOWS that that’s the kind of person he wants in Congress. The Republican Establishment has been completely USELESS in passing any significant legislation in Trump’s first year as POTUS. He doesn’t want to deal with and appease Establishment candidates and Congressmen. He doesn’t want to deal with the Democrats either, as I’ve said in a previous article. He wants people who will be on his side on MANY issues.
Trump wants to repeal and replace Obamacare. Moore wants much of the same, so he will vote for a VERY conservative repeal bill. He won’t vote for a “let’s get rid of this one tiny thing so that the media isn’t too mad at us” bill. Moore is as close to Trump’s perfect candidate as you can get. He’s certainly as close to a grass-roots Christian conservative as you can get. And if the people of Alabama can get him into office (which I believe will happen), then I certainly think that we’ll be dealing a serious blow to the Establishment and will be getting closer to Making America Great Again.
Strange’s loss isn’t a loss for Trump. It’s a loss for the Establishment, and potentially a MASSIVE loss for the Democrats. Alabama is very conservative. Liberal policies and candidates are VERY difficult to sell there. But even more so if that liberal candidate is going up against a very CONSERVATIVE candidate.
I can’t wait for the December special election in Alabama. It will mark another step forward to Making America Great Again and Making America WE THE PEOPLE’S Again.
