The NFL Blinks

A Fox News story is headlined “NFL owners are ‘f—–g terrified’ of Trump, report says”

I agree the NFL owners are terrified but not of President Trump, the answer is obvious but whoever used this quote as the headline for this story isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

President Trump voiced his opinion that the NFL should take a stand against their players who kneel during the National Anthem. The NFL suffered last season.

“After a tumultuous 2017 season, which saw NFL attendance and TV ratings drop as President Donald Trump and others criticized on-field protests by many of the league’s players, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced this week that the league would fine any team or league employee if they failed “to stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.””

The tumultuous 2017 season wasn’t because of President Trump, the serious drop in attendance and TV viewers was because President Trump understands what the people of this country feel. They’re associating President Trump with the patriotism, with the contempt we hold for those who disrespect the flag and by association disrespect for our veterans who fight for that flag, and with the spirit of middle America. They’re right to associate him with us, but they fear those of us who are the patriots who live, work, and buy tickets in this country.

President Trump didn’t fail to buy tickets for the NFL games, President Trump didn’t refuse to watch the NFL on TV, we did; they fear us and they should fear us, we expect millionaires who play a game for a living to respect what we respect. They are absolutely free to disrespect it if they choose to, they have the same freedom of speech that we do, but there are consequences.

Spit on my flag and I’ll spit on your game, they spit on our flag all year we spit on their game all year, the NFL just blinked. The NFL is a business, it needs to make money, it needs to pay cry baby millionaires who play a game for a living millionaire money that they don’t deserve. Their bottom line took a big hit, their bottom line will take another big hit this year and next year.

The NFL owners just woke up and did what they should have done when President Trump made the Comments about shutting down any player who kneels during the anthem last year. They do enough research to understand what to advertise during their games, they know who makes up their audience, people who won’t put up with disrespect to the flag. President Trump didn’t need an analysis to tell him America wouldn’t put up with that kind of disrespect, he knew it and he stood up and said it.

President Trump is Middle America that’s why we elected him. The NFL, the media, the left, they were all afraid to stand up for what they believed because a few players felt the need to protest what was important to them. While they have the right to express themselves as they wish, it was done while they were engaged in the performance of their duties for the paycheck they receive. The employer, the NFL, can and is finally setting guidelines on what and how they can protest on company time. They should have found their intestinal fortitude sooner. It was never an issue of race; it was always an issue of patriotism. It was never an issue of freedom of speech, it was always an issue of patriotism.

Protesting the National Anthem impacts the bottom line in a serious negative manner. They’re just now figuring out that they are all getting pay cuts and some may not get a contract in the future.

President Trump was the voice, but the NFL fears the American Patriots who used to love football. The NFL spit on the flag and America spit on the NFL, America won and the NFL lost, shame on them for taking so long to smarten up. If they came around last year when President Trump recommended it, they would have had a much better year last year and this year would have been better.

The NFL is a business, they should have run it as a business, they didn’t and it hurt them badly.

Instead of fighting because they think President Trump is wrong, listen to him and compare what he says to what Joe and Jane six pack think and I bet you see he’s right, because Joe and Jane six pack think he’s right.

Mueller will Fold

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/388417-the-memo-will-mueller-play-hardball-with-trump

The Memo: Will Mueller play hardball with Trump?

I read this article and it describes the pros and cons of Mueller pushing the point to interview the President. Rudi Guliani and Joe DeGenova make very strong Points for the President not only to avoid testifying but to continue to push back against the investigation to get them to indict or close shop.

Mueller is a bully; bullies back down, so the answer to this is no he won’t play hard ball because he can’t win. I don’t believe he has any evidence that the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia to cheat Hillary out of the Presidency; I don’t believe it because if it happened they would have discovered something to prove it and we would have heard about it in the news already. They can’t keep that big a secret.

Every time they thought that had the Holy Grail the news went crazy reporting that now they have it and now they can Impeach Trump, but every time they had to back down and admit they still had nothing.

It’s unlikely in the extreme that Trump Colluded with Russia to win the election, therefore there won’t be any evidence to prove it. They went into this investigation convinced the Trump cheated so there must be evidence! Early on they must have realized there was no evidence, they also had to realize the fake dossier is the basis for the collusion theory so they knew they were chasing ghosts. There only way out was to find something dirty to hang on Trump. Trump is a Billionaire and a Loudmouth without a filter, two of the reasons I voted for him, so I’m sure there is some dirt somewhere that they can hang on him, but that wasn’t the purpose of this investigation.

Seventeen out of twenty-two lawyers on Mueller’s team are registered democrats, those who aren’t democrats have no known political affiliation, they were motivated to hang Trump, very motivated, but they came up empty.

Mueller’s team is turning over every rock looking for that dirt. With an unlimited budget and no real oversight, they feel that they can did and dig until they get something. If this were a game of poker President Trump is holding a pair of Jacks and Mueller is holding a pair of deuces.

President Trump knows he has a strong hand and only a stronger hand can beat him. He knows there wasn’t any collusion so he’s confident that Mueller has little to nothing in his hand. Mueller has the Deep State and the resistance behind him, but they’re not a viable backup for him. When things get ugly they’ll only start pointing fingers and fail to remember anything. Mueller is the face of the investigation, he knows he has a pair of Deuces and he knows that won’t get him anywhere. There’re only two reasons he could want to question President Trump, to clarify a few points that almost certainly they don’t need very much, or to set a perjury trap.

The process of getting a subpoena for the President of the US is a process that will require some substance to justify, substance that I doubt Mueller has. I doubt he’ll go there with a weak hand.

This process started with the media holding Mueller over their shoulders as a shining knight to go slay the dragon, President Trump was the dragon. Now it’s a year later, the shine has dulled on his armor, his shield is dented and tarnished and he lost all his weapons fighting shadows. President Trump is still standing and Rudi Giuliani is fighting the knight and starting to win.

Mueller is looking for an honorable way to fold his hand and slink out of town with as little of the stink on him as possible, the Deep State and the resistance are soon to take a beating when the Inspector General’s report is released.

The tide has turned, it was everybody against Trump a year ago, but now the shift has Trump on top and the resistance in retreat. Whatever the Deep State and the resistance is, it’s partisan and political, areas not known for honor and integrity. The Inspector General’s report will identify players who followed instructions from players who were trying to keep their hands clean.

President Trump has to keep succeeding in his job as our President, and he and Rudi have to stand tall and keep shouting about the witch hunt, the public is starting to agree. It is a witch hunt and the public are agreeing it’s a witch hunt.

We may not like some of what Senator John McCain may be saying lately, but as a POW who was being tortured he never ratted out another POW or his country. Senator McCain is a sailor who embodies honor and integrity, we will not be seeing any of his qualities as the rats from the Deep State and the resistance are questioned, they will rat out every body they can to get a lighter sentence.

The Emotional Resistance

Political discourse in today’s world is more than an examination of facts and opinions. There’re some deep emotional feelings intertwined in the process. Those on the left who have passionate negative feelings toward the President can only see evil and bad in him. When I read the facts in the news and I see how clearly the issue is in the President’s favor, I’m shocked how those on the Left see 180 degrees away from what I see.

If President Trump turned water into wine, the story wouldn’t be about a miracle it would be about how President Trump stole jobs from California vineyards and wineries. That’s how he’s treated in the media and that’s how he’s viewed by those on the left. Their emotion prevents them from seeing the facts.

They suspend facts and reason; they are searching for justification of their opinion. A great example of this is President Trump’s recent comment about MS-13 Gang members being animals, he was clearly only calling the gang members and the killers, animals, but the media and the left jumped at the chance to condemn him for that comment. The facts were irrelevant, he called immigrants animals and he must be condemned for it. The media doesn’t even want to appear to be fair, they will use anything to further their agenda, they want the President out of office or at least to fail while in office.

Most of the opposition see President Trump as a menace and a threat to the country; most of his supporters see him as an amazing President who is achieving far more in less than two years than most presidents achieve who served eight years.

The same set of facts are being interpreted in two or more ways, how is this possible? He’s an incredible President accomplishing a lot of what he promised when he campaigned for office, or he’s a menace to society. History will clearly sort this out over time. During the fifties and early sixties President Eisenhower was not thought of as such a strong President, but as time passed he become seen as a very good President with some great accomplishments.

Ike was responsible for all of our early space accomplishments, and our success in the early stages of the Cold War, he created the Interstate Highway system, not for vacationing tourists, or to improve commercial traffic, but to help the country in time of war to move men and materials across country quicker and cheaper. Lessons learned from WWII, caused him to push for and support the interstate highways. The Suez Crisis, the U2 shoot down and the end of the Korean War are some of his foreign policy accomplishments; these are some of his accomplishments that are more highly thought of now than when he left office.

Before the end of his Presidency, President Trump will be known for his accomplishments because the media’s credibility is so poor. As the story is clearly white and the media is screaming black the audience can tell the difference. Those on the left, with their emotional commitment to their own point of view, will clearly only see the black because that’s what they need to see. They will look at it through an emotional filter not a clear set of objective eyes.

It won’t take long for history to recognize these first couple of years of the Trump Presidency had some incredible accomplishments, but that’s only part of the story. These accomplishments came while there was an active, determined resistance to his Presidency in the media and in his own administration. In spite of the resistance he accomplished a lot. The resistance is made up of partisan players who were determined to make sure Hillary was elected, they knew it was going to happen because Trump was so evil no one would vote for him. They all recognized that Trump couldn’t win but they were worried that Hillary could lose. The resistance did what they could to prop up Hillary and hold back Trump. The election did not take place on a level playing field.

The field was tilted in Hillary’s favor, but Trump still won, so they had to run interference against Trump to make sure his was either an illegitimate presidency or a failed one. It’s possible that it was a carefully planned and focused operation or different players from different areas just piled on doing whatever possible to throw road blocks in the President’s path.

There was even mention of an insurance plan, in case the unthinkable happened. It appears that the resistance is or is part of the insurance plan.

The media has abandoned its position as the public watchdog. They have no interest in being fair and impartial, they only want to embolden or assist the resistance. The facts are in front of them, they are clear and the contrast is black and white, there’s very little grey. Their emotion is in the way; they can’t see the facts in front of them. They refuse to see right and wrong, they only see what they feel supports their love, their emotion for the point of view that they have, that president Trump is a hate filled racist, who is incapable of being President.

They’ll have to face the fact that the House and Senate both investigated and the results from both investigations will not match what the narrative they have been trying to present to the country. The Inspector General’s report will be even more devastating. Members of the resistance will take a few hits in the public’s eye as well as in the court system, possibly even serve jail time. The media will have a difficult time explaining this, but they will have to and when they try to spin it as a negative for President Trump they’ll lose the last scraps of credibility that they have.

As the President is more and more successful and the threads of the Mueller investigation continue to unravel the public will see the truth. While the FBI stonewalling of the House Subpoenas finally gets to the end of the rope and they have to produce the evidence, and the impending IG Report is released, the resistance will get weaker and weaker. The media will be forced, reluctantly and slanted, but reported to the world as it happens. The media will be the unindicted coconspirators of the resistance, explaining their role as their former unnamed Senior Justice Department or FBI source for the resistance version of the narrative over the past year and a half will be difficult.

Members of the resistance are not honorable or noble people; they will fight over gets to rat out other members of the resistance first. They will admit how they used the media as the puppets and trolls they are to assist them do their best to damage our President. It won’t be pretty, and I can’t wait to see it happen.

Credibility

Credibility is the quality of being believed or trusted. How much credibility can the media and the left get by tying to shoot down everything the President does. President Trump is experiencing a great deal of success and he is achieving a lot, but the left and the media are sniping at his heels over nonsense.

The tax bill that passed this year lowers taxes for everyone, but reduces the deduction for state taxes, that does provide an inconvenience for the high tax states. Revenues at both the Federal and State levels are rising, the unemployment rate is still going down. During the Obama years the unemployment rate went down but the workforce participation rate went down as well. With fewer people looking for jobs the unemployment rate when down without new jobs and more people working. In the Trump years more than one million people went back into the workforce and the unemployment rate still went down. The corporate tax breaks caused the creation of more jobs and more people are working, earning money and paying taxes. The media and the left are criticizing the tax bill because it gives a tax break to the wealthy; The wealthy pay more taxes than all of us, they will always get a break when taxes are lowered, but that is a good thing, they have the money to spend and invest, their tax breaks are a big reason more money is invested and more jobs are created.

North Korea released three men who were detained. As talks approach with South Korea, North Korea, and the USA North Korea released these three hostages in a show of good faith. This positive step in relations with an aggressive potential nuclear power, President Trump has been criticized and chastised for how he’s talked to and about North Korea. Significant progress has been made in relations between North Korea and the USA, because of President Trump, but the media only criticizes him for his tone, his language and his attitude.

He moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, that was a promise that he made while campaigning for office, but he did it, previous Presidents promised it but failed to deliver. That was a big step forward in Middle East Peace.

At what point does the media lose all credibility for failing to report the facts. The media is still screaming how he isn’t fit for the office, they still scream about how he’s an embarrassment, but he keeps moving forward and achieving real results.

As we approach the mid-term elections, there’s going to be a great deal of coverage on the performance of the republican party and the President, that coverage will almost certainly not be positive and encouraging. The success of the President and his Administration will be obvious and it will be reported by some organizations. President Trump will Tweet his accomplishments regularly. Republican Candidates will use that success in their campaigns, Democrat candidates will argue the success and the facts, but the facts will be the facts and can be supported. Failing to report accurately will be very obvious, their failure to report accurately will be a topic of discussion in this election, Credibility will be an issue.

The amount of success the President is achieving and the piss ant media sniping at his heels doesn’t give the media much credibility, those people who haven’t already lose faith with the media will lose it during this election because the contrast is going to be so stark. It’s going to be more black and white and less gray.

More candidates that are not from the political class will be running for office. More of them will win, more will be in office. Much of President Trump’s success comes from his “outsider” Experience and so will theirs.

The credibility of the media and the democrats will be big news as this year’s campaigns progress. You can’t shine shit! The media’s credibility has been shit for many years and it’s has dropped since President Trump was elected.

Trump the Outsider

President Trump has been in the public eye since the early eighties, there was nothing about him between his arrival in the public eye and the election season for the 2016 Presidential Election that caused him to be known as such a racist, a misogynist and an all-around dirty rotten bastard.

He was considered a blow hard, a conceited billionaire, a reality show celebrity, and a character, but never a racist, never a woman abuser, and certainly never so despicable that you had to loath him. The loathing only came when he decided he wanted to be the President.

Based on this I think it’s safe to assume that President Trumps overall behavior and personality had nothing to do with the loathing he must endure from so many people, it’s his position as the President that caused it. He is not a product of the political class, he’s his own man with his own principles and his own agenda, to Make America Great Again.

His crude behavior hasn’t changed in the past forty years; he’s a wealthy man with large appetites. He’s cycled through several very attractive wives and he knows how to have a good time. When not in front of a camera he is almost certainly guilty of several levels of bad behavior but that’s not news now.

The point that I’m trying to make is that President Trump isn’t such a bad person because of his character, his personality, or behavior. The loathing for him only started after he said he was running for President. That means Donald Trump isn’t the dirty rotten bastard, President Trump is the Dirty Rotten bastard. It’s a matter of credibility; if you didn’t loath Donald Trump the Billionaire, you really don’t have the right to loath him now.

It’s not only the loyal opposition who loathes him, many on the same side as President Trump loath him as well.

The political class doesn’t want him in office because he’s a wild card, he’s his own man and he can’t be controlled. He’s getting things done that some people may not want to get done. He passed a tax reform bill, he made progress in the middle east and in North Korea, even though that seems to be stuck in a setback, it is still moving ahead slowly.

He’s making things happen and getting things done. He spent his life as a successful businessman, of course he could run the Executive Branch of the United States Government. Those who were saying he was going to get in over his head were clueless not him. He knows how to run a large organization and he knows how to compromise and get a deal done.

Progress in government requires legislation not cash and loans, but he knows how to make a deal and he knows how to come to consensus. The Political Class has lost touch with the real world or they’re jealous of outsiders getting into their world, but the way they’ve been running things something had to give.

The Founding Fathers had someone like Donald Trump in mind when they wrote the Constitution, they didn’t anticipate full time political hacks making a living and getting rich as public servants.

The loathing for President Trump is based on him rocking the boat from the outside, not based on him the man.

Many people voted for President Trump because he is from the outside, we need more outsiders getting into government and a lot of insiders to start getting out.

Trump is Winning

President Trump is being successful; he’s making advances in the Foreign Policy, on the economy, in Immigration and in his fight against the witch hunt. You can’t beat success; you can’t take credit for what another guy does either.

President Trump is moving forward living up to his campaign promises and Making America Great Again. This is driving many people crazy.

It was a rigged election, Hillary was supposed to win, it was her turn. Trump won, he didn’t cheat and he won an election rigged against him. That’s what set off the witch hunt. The witch hunt is only turning up evidence against those who are shouting “Collusion” at him.

November 2018 will come and go without a blue wave and with Trump still in office still making progress in spite of the screaming piss ants who want him to fail.

The anger and the hatred for President Trump isn’t because he’s a despicable person, it’s because all their scheming and treachery hasn’t brought him down. He’s supposed to roll over and submit to their accusations without fighting back and to be terrorized frozen as they destroy his presidency. His ability to keep making progress and moving forward makes them more mad.

Keep moving forward Mr. President

The Political Class and the Media

Fourth Estate Sale

The political class is getting smaller; some are going to jail for financial or sexual misdeeds, some are retiring, and some are being elected out of office. These are baby steps, good baby steps but nothing like the real steps of progress we need.

Most taxpayers and voters are in favor term limits, but the office holders themselves, the men and women who represent us the taxpayers and voters are against term limits.

Public Service is the business of supplying an essential commodity, as gas or electricity, or a service, to the public or government employment; civil service. Elected officials are public servants, they are in office to make life better for the taxpayer and the voter.

Too many public servants are more interested in taking care of themselves and their campaign donors than taking care of those of us who put them into office. It’s a rare occasion when the taxpayers or the voters decide who will run for office for a given party; that’s usually a decision made by the party hacks at the political party headquarters with input or direction from the big money donors.

It’s not always as stark a comparison as we saw in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” The young and Idealistic Senator Jefferson Smith who was young, naïve, and full of optimism; and Senator Joseph Paine who was part of the institution that was run by the Political Boss and not the people. As these two bump heads over right and wrong we saw how powerful the political class can be. We were finally brought to a climatic ending on the floor of the Senate where good did beat evil.

Some are as corrupt and selfish as Senator Joe Paine without his final pangs of guilt, but few are as innocent and naïve as Senator Jefferson Smith. The honorable men and women who take a couple of years out of their successful lives to serve their communities are long gone, if they ever existed. Politicians get in office and then we can’t get them out. They lie, misrepresent the truth, and twist facts to their own advantage. They are like rats and roaches, once you have them getting rid of them is difficult.

Now we need to add the media into the mix. When the media acts as the public watchdog and does their job with a minimum level of ethics and a sense of fair play, which we haven’t seen since God Knows when, the public watchdog would hold politicians accountable for their weasel words.

A fair and impartial media would pay attention to every politician’s remarks and when a politician that promised while campaigning they would fight against a tax hike, but voted for a tax hike while in office, that would be big news and would be reported. Our politicians lie, cheat, and steal because we let them. No one is watching them, no one cares what they’re doing because they’re part of the political class.

Recently the Attorney General of New York resigned from office because several women came forward with charges that he mistreated them sexually. It appears that his poor treatment of women was well known, it was accepted because he was “an import democratic politician” One victim was talked out of coming forward because this slug was too important to too many people. His sexual offenses are just as offensive as if they were committed by an ex-convict living in your community who abuse the mayor’s adult daughter. However severely the community would investigate and prosecute the ex-convict, the system should be more severe with a public servant. Yes, I believe that the act of self-sacrifice and public service requires you to live to a higher standard.

We let the political class take advantage of us. We the People forget that they derive their power from us the People. They think they’re in power and in charge, they think they make decisions and do what we want for us. They have taken over and we’re their subjects.

The political class doesn’t like President Trump because he’s his own man, he acts like he’s a businessman getting things done and satisfying his customers in the process. If President Trump thinks of the US Government as his business, and he sees the taxpayers and voters as his customer base, that’s not a bad thing. The US Government should be working for us; it should be working in our best interests. The government has deteriorated into a political class that takes care of the voter and tax payer as it takes care of itself better. Our needs and concerns are secondary to their needs. They only need and want our votes, so we’re manipulated to vote for them.

We need more candidates like President Trump, we need more candidates who are motivated to be public servants, not politicians. Our politicians do, on occasion go in clean, but after a while they get dirty and should be recycled. There’s no reason why anyone should object to term limits. There’s no reason why a limit of two, 2-year terms wouldn’t be acceptable to any reasonable person. The only people who would object to term limits are those who are in office to make money and get rich.

Without a public watchdog, as the media was intended to be, we don’t have a critical eye on the lies public figures tell us. A fair and impartial media would investigate corruption and malfeasance in office and make big headlines about it. A fair and impartial media would investigate and report the sexual misconduct of an important political figure of any party because that’s big news. A fair and impartial media would investigate and report the misrepresentations made by political campaigns to keep a level playing field and warn us about the lies from the campaigners.

We need more public servants who are true public servants; we don’t need or want the political class. Anyone in office for a third time is part of the political class and must go. Vote them out.

Results Count

There is a great line from the movie Ghostbusters, Dan Akroyd as Ray Stanz says “I love the university they gave us money and facilities; we didn’t have to produce anything! You’ve never been out of college! You don’t know what it’s like out there! I’ve worked in the private sector. They expect results.”

The private sector expects results; that’s a simple statement but a powerful statement. The private sector works with a bottom line, whether they realize it or not families work with a bottom line too. Most families strive to still have some paycheck left when they run out of month, that gets difficult if you have the wrong kind of economy working.

President Trump is being successful at being the President, so successful that as his poll numbers rise, some publications are reluctant to publish the results because they feel that his high poll numbers are the result of an outlier not a true picture. The media only tells us how bad he is or how rotten he is; they never report his accomplishments unless they have to.

Results also known as substance count for something. Appearance, or intentions are misleading and non-binding. Appearance and intentions are usually associated with politicians; they want to give the appearance of taking a stand for or against something without being anchored to that stand, they want to offer the appearance that they are doing something but they don’t want to be tied too tightly to it if the need arises for them to have to abandon that position.

President Trump, the outsider, the nonprofessional politician, is from the private sector and he not only expects results, he demands them. Time is money, money is results. President Trump doesn’t have time for appearances he has time for results. He has been getting results in spite of the opposition to him, and there has been a great deal of opposition to him.

The Trump resistance and the media don’t quite understand results because they never live in the private sector or the real world. They all live in their cocoons and have no contact with the rest of the country. The media has decided that they won’t show any more of President Trump’s live appearances. They have an alleged business reason not to do that anymore, but I think they hate to show their audience the support he gets when he goes out in the world. Jane and Joe Sixpack love him and what he’s doing.

Those of us not on the left or in the media love this country and love what President Trump is doing. We are becoming great again, and that excites us. We want to be the super power again, we want to be led by a man or a woman who is real and sincere. A person who loves this country and wants us to shine. President Trump is doing that.

The tax bill, the progress with North Korea, the deregulation and the job growth are all things that the President and the Republicans can brag about. Results count in the real world. “Money talks, Bull Shit walks” is a phrase from Middle America, and it makes sense.

Accomplishments are hard to challenge, results count. Not one democrat voted for the tax reform bill, that will be the single biggest obstacle for the democrats to have to jump over. How can you explain that I didn’t vote for a tax cut that lowered your taxes and let you keep more of what you earned? They’ll attempt to make it look like the bill was bad and should have been be voted down, but too many voters got more money in their checks and less money withheld, so that’s hard to explain away. The republicans are going to drive that point over and over forcing their opponents, the democrats who didn’t vote for it, to have to explain why they voted against a tax cut.

The democrats are going to be tied to the notion that they want President Trump impeached and removed from office, but his accomplishments get in the way. A solution to the North Korean problem, more jobs less unemployment, progress in trade and in immigration, the roll back of regulations alone is worth billions of dollars, all these things will count in favor of the President and his administration.

Results matter, when you have a job to do and you get it done it tells a story. When Joe Shit the Raggpicker picks up every rag in the shop, his supervisor knows that Joe Shit is a good employee. When Crazy Billy’s Liquor store is always filled with customers and you always find the liquor you want at a price you can afford you know that Crazy Billy knows how to run a liquor store. When Congressman Lying Sack of Shit tells you after the election he will cut your taxes and increase your pay and make sure your wife loves you every day of the week and twice on payday, but you never see anything he promises, you start to realize Congressman Lying Sack of Shit was named well.

General Eisenhower may be the closest we’ve come to electing anyone like President Trump. Ike was a General and was used to results, but he was never in the private sector, he didn’t have to make a payroll or a profit. Don’t get me wrong; I’ll take a successful military officer over a politician, but a businessman or woman I think would be best.

The long list of accomplishments that this President will have to brag about for the midterm elections will be impressive, the voters will love them in spite of the media telling us how bad they are.

After two terms of President Trump will we be able to accept a politician as our President again?

The way things are going it’s possible that in the past fifty years the strongest Presidents could be a B movie actor and a Reality TV star with an inclination towards Porn Stars.

Results matter, Results tell a story of accomplishment.

The Mid Term Elections

The mid-term elections are coming up and the talking heads and pundits are expecting a Democratic wave to overwhelm the country. That won’t happen because the country isn’t that stupid. Some pundits, and talking heads are that stupid, but the country isn’t.

Historically the midterm elections are a boon to the party out of power because the party in power is forced to act and not pontificate. The phrase “The Pioneers take the arrows” seems to fit here. When forced to actually govern you have to take a stand and do things. The act of governing requires action and communication; both of those things will be used against a politician in future elections. When forced to take a stand a politician has something that can used against them.

The current situation doesn’t fit into history. President Trump is not a politician, he is a wild card and his own man. He is also rude, crude, and socially unacceptable, but so what, where does he fit when compared to Andrew Jackson, Warren Harding, Harry Truman, John F Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Bill Clinton? I say he falls a little below some and a little above other on the rude, crude and socially unacceptable scale.

President Trump is an outsider and doesn’t represent the status quo, he represents the voter and the tax payer, that’s his problem. The establishment has been in power for quite some time and they haven’t authorized someone like President Trump to be elected. He pissed them all off when he won. He won in spite of the game being fixed against him, that’s not supposed to happen.

It’s possible that the republicans will lose some seats in the mid-terms but not enough to lose the House. One benefit we have thanks to the Obama years is we hold the majority in 32 state legislatures, 33 if you count Nebraska, which has only one house and is allegedly nonpartisan.

This advantage gave us the opportunity to used Gerrymandering to a republican advantage.

Another benefit in the favor of republicans is the legislation that they have passed. President Trump signed 96 bills into law in his first year in office. One in particular will put money back in the hands of every tax payer who earns a salary. The Tax Reform Bill will be a big boost for many republicans running for office. Voting for a bill that allows hard working people to keep the money they earn is a big winner for most voters. No democrats voted for that bill, they won’t campaign on the reasons that they didn’t vote for it but the republicans will. All the republicans running will highlight the actions of the democratic party and their opposition to President Trump.

Appointing Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was a big winner even if it wasn’t a legislative achievement. Many voters will vote for that as a positive thing. Conservative voices on the Supreme Court moves the Court to a more tradition position where it won’t try to legislate by judicial edict.

Another big achievement for the republicans are the roll back of regulations. This is having a big positive impact on business and jobs. The economy is starting to roar, it’s in much better shape than it was in when President Trump took over, these are achievements that people can see and feel.

The talks between North and South Korea seem to be a big diplomatic achievement for the President, as well as his progress in Europe and the Middle East. Apparently he’s not too rude, Crude, or Socially Unacceptable to the rest of the world. Positive talking points for Republican candidates.

The Travel Ban and the Wall are achievements that have not been fully realized but the fight is still active and the potential is there for success.

The republicans have positive issues to fight with, the democrats can only tell us what a dirty rotten bastard President Trump is. Then they can talk about Impeachment.

The Mueller investigation is collapsing so there will be indictments and terminations that include members of the Obama administration not the Trump administration. More details from this failed Ponzi Scheme will made public be election day so that will help the republicans a lot.

Right now we are in early May there are more things for us to achieve, President Trump said we were going to get tired of winning and maybe we will.

We will keep the House; we will get more seats in the Senate, President Trump will campaign for many republican candidates and that will help them not hurt them. The mid-term elections will look good for the country, the republicans and President Trump, but not so good for CNN, CNN will be sad.

President Trump won 2623 counties in 2016, Hillary won 489. There aren’t enough dead people to change the balance in favor of the democrats.

Republican win, and win big.

PS Stormy Daniels and President Trump.

I don’t know this as a fact but I strongly suspect that this is true. Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels were naked in the same bed for a period of time.

Not only that, take your 14 and 15-year-old sexual fantasies, multiply them by your 25 and 30-year-old sexual fantasies, and the shit those two did in that hotel room was at least 5 times dirtier and nastier and hotter than that.

He didn’t drug her, or lie to her or coerce her in any way other than to promise value in the form of cash or merchandise for hot dirty sex.

We know she is a porn star and border line whore and President Trump should be ashamed of himself for doing it, but he almost certainly did SO WHAT!
