Guess Who Is Pulling the Rug out from under Trump, again

What’s a president to do about the crisis on our southern border?  It’s hard enough fighting a political party that owes its very existence to illegal immigration and will provide nothing to stop the flow through our border with Mexico.   However, it’s members of Trump’s own party who are pulling the rug out from under him, again.

Democrats in the House refuse to pass the laws that are needed to immediately deport those streaming into our country from Central America.  They refuse to give up the money for a border barrier or any kind of meaningful security.  They refuse to provide the money for additional detention facilities or even humanitarian aid to the illegal border crossers.  For Democrats, nothing will do other than simply releasing these gate crashers into our country.

So Trump has attempted to use the laws at his disposal to stop the flow himself.  Unfortunately, it’s his own party that is cutting him off at the knees. Continue reading “Guess Who Is Pulling the Rug out from under Trump, again”

Time to Chew Gum (Call Democrats’ Bluff on Immigration)

Democrats have an answer for their critics who question why they are spending time investigating President Trump instead of  addressing the urgent needs of the country:  “We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” they tell us.

Well its time they start chewing gum! Continue reading “Time to Chew Gum (Call Democrats’ Bluff on Immigration)”

The most Dangerous Uncle in America

Now that Joe Biden has officially entered the 2020 presidential race his poll numbers have continued to rise. While some have dismissed his early lead attributing it to nothing more than name recognition, this is wishful thinking by his Democratic opponents and many in the left-leaning media.

Let’s be clear about one thing: Most political races are nothing more than a beauty contest. The sad truth is that most voters can’t be bothered to study the issues, examine the backgrounds of the candidates, read their issue statements and, once the primaries are finished, read the party platforms. Sadly, most voters select their candidate the way a 7-year-old selects her Barbie doll – 2016 being a notable exception.

Joe Biden is a handsome older man. He wants you to think of him as “Uncle Joe,” your loving, dependable, sweet Uncle Joe. He is warm and cuddly, some say too cuddly. Nevertheless, he is viewed by most who know him, on both sides of the political aisle, as a “nice guy.”

SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)

As State of the Union speeches go they are usually yawners.  This one, with few exceptions, was a barn burner.

If you missed it, don’t worry; you will see its most dramatic moments replayed over and over in Republican 2020 campaign ads.  Trump deftly used this address to expose the Democrats soft underbelly of open borders, devoid of bipartisanship and reason.

The president set the tone when he invited Democrats to “Choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.”  Clearly the Democrats, with few exceptions, decided on, gridlock, resistance, vengeance and destruction.

Democratic women, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, did themselves no favor by wearing white, which they said was to express solidarity with working women around the country.  They want us to believe Continue reading “SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)”

The Party of Line Breakers and Gate Crashers

As children, we don’t know much about politics, but we understand the need for rules, laws if you will, and discipline for those who break them. Without rules there can be no order, no classes, no learning.

Children also understand the need for lines.  You line up for lunch, for treats, for sports equipment, etc.   It is first come; first served.  As adults we line up to get into concerts, sporting events and amusement parks; to board trains, buses and airplanes.  At the airport we have lines to go through security.  No one likes a line breaker.  We didn’t like them as children and we don’t tolerate them as adults.

So how did the Democratic Party, the party that built its reputation on fairness, become the party of line breakers at our southern border?   How do they get away with defending a practice that is despised by virtually everyone Continue reading “The Party of Line Breakers and Gate Crashers”

The News Media’s Groundhog Day

The movie classic Groundhog Day has made this popular tradition, celebrated each February 2, synonymous with something that is intolerably boring.   However, Groundhog Day has come early this year.

Instead of a surly weatherman caught in a time warp, it’s the network nightly newscasts’ coverage of President Trump and his effort to protect this country from those determined to circumvent our generous immigration laws that are boring us to death.

Those of us truly concerned about what is going on in this nation keep tuning in each night hoping to see something different, but it’s more of the same.  Democrats call his efforts to secure the border “racist” and “immoral.”  They rail against his plan to build more walls, barriers, or whatever you want to call them, in areas where people and drugs are pouring into this country and overwhelming border agents.

Where are the interviews with the border agents who say they need these barriers?   Continue reading “The News Media’s Groundhog Day”
