If Coronavirus Doesn’t Kill the U.S., Corruption in Government Will

Guest piece by Gregg Updike

After we won WWII in 1945, the US had about 75% of the world’s manufacturing capability with about 7% of the world’s population. We lost over 400,000 (overwhelmingly white males) and spent about four Trillion of today’s Dollars in that effort to “Save the World for Democracy”.

Today we can’t address anything without spending at least a TRILLION DOLLARS!  By the way, a TRILLION DOLLARS equals about $3,050.00 per person.

Today, after 75 years of implementing the globalists’ “New World Order” via the FDR-created UN, which has done nothing but bleed the US of its wealth, we have less than 10% of the world’s manufacturing capability and about 4.7% of the world’s population. One must ask: What exactly did we gain for such sacrifice?

We gained no territory, no resources, no wealth from our effort. It is as if we played poker, risked (and spent a lot – built the casino) everything, won big, and then not only gave back the winnings, but also gave up almost all the assets we brought to the table.

For the last 100-plus years we have been the most generous nation in the world saving much of Europe from oppressive tyranny and providing aid and comfort to virtually all of the world when natural and some man made disasters have occurred, yet we are the most criticized, and disrespected country in the world.

For perspective: Google Gordon Sinclair’s book, “The Americans, a Canadian Opinion” that came out almost 50 years ago.

The UN, just like its predecessor – the League of Nations – has never solved anything in a permanent way. Yet it is the go-to place to solve the world’s problems.

No victorious nation has ever done more to defeat itself than the U.S., and this must stop. We have the means and the resources, to tell the world to go to hell; the question is do we have the national will.

With the revelation that at least two, and possibly four, or more, senators sold a lot of their stock after being briefed on the severity of the CHINA Virus shows that we have a real internal enemy, an existential threat if you will.

Our country simply cannot survive as founded, and continue to allow/condone the rampant corruption such as insider trading by senators (and probably many other officials), the coup against our duly elected president, the quid pro quos, influence pedaling through bogus “Charity” foundations, pay to play, a largely corrupt judiciary, DOJ/FBI/IC, media (D), academia, and many other institutions.

Attorney General Barr, you took the job, and took an oath to defend the constitution. It is time to see something positive from your department for America, its constitution, and its people happen! DC is a target rich environment and so far your department is isn’t even firing duds at the target that a blind and deaf person could find; sloths are acting with more alacrity than you and your department – the same goes for the chief justice of the SC.

Time to make something happen, or admit that you are (like Sessions) in over your head or are just too much of a swamp creature to effect needed change. The fact that you wanted the FISA renewed without change and have not indicted anyone who has been referred to YOU by the your IG speaks volumes. Schiff or get off the pot.

President Trump, you have been masterful in getting things done under the radar noise of the media’s crisis de jour, it is time to do wholesale firings which would go largely unnoticed during the current CHINA virus “crisis”.

When I was in the navy and the naval reserve we periodically got training on a wide variety of non-military subjects. Here is the one we got on ethics:

A junior officer was an aid to an admiral who sat on a board that was to make the decision on whether the navy was going to continue to buy the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, or instead, stop the Tomcat program and purchase the new McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. He was present at the meeting which made the decision to cancel the Tomcat and go with the Hornet – this was a multi billion dollar decision which was made several days before the official announcement. Predictably Grumman stock plummeted and McDonnell Douglas stock rose when the decision was made public.

He was in a position to either sell his Grumman stock and/or buy McDonnell Douglas stock to his personal advantage. He told us that had he done such a transaction, it would be INSIDER TRADING and illegal and immoral. He went on to further state that military personnel who were found to be USING THEIR POSITION FOR PERSONAL GAIN would be severely punished to include at least fines, restriction, and quite possibly at least an other than honorable discharge.

I received similar introductory training when I became a civilian government employee. We also got required yearly online training on this and other matters on how to conduct ourselves while employed in a trusted position with the US Government. We were required to certify that we understood and would faithfully follow the rules and regulations in order to maintain our clearances and employment.

Last I checked, representatives and senators, and their staffs are GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES who are bound by the same rules and regulations as are the thousands of peons work for the US (and not foreign) government.

I have to hope and believe that they got the same training., but maybe not – it is congress after all, and we know they live under a different set of rules…

Regardless, ignorance of the law is no excuse and it is not a viable defense.

If the government (DOJ) won’t do its job, it is time for we, the people, to Schiff-can these traitors.

Inhofe (R) OK, 85 years old is up this year – primary time!

Burr (RINO) NC, 64 years old is up in 2022, but has announced he will not seek re-election – resignation and prosecution time!

Loeffler (RINO) GA, 49 years old – appointed to fill the retired Johnny Isakson’s seat by Gov. Kemp. The seat is up in 2022, but, depending on GA law, she could be forced to run for election this year. Don’t really want to have to defend another GOP senate seat, but corrupt and/or RINOs are not needed from a solid RED state.

Feinstein (D) CA, 86 years old is up in 2024 – regardless of what happens to her between now and then it doesn’t matter because the CA Gov. Newsom would probably name Schiff or some other radical for the remainder of her term.

That is all.

Greta Thunberg Needs a Caring Adult in her Life

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ok, so, you’re saying nothing’s changed, then? – The Washington Post breathlessly reports today that 1 in 7 adults in New Orleans has a warrant out for their arrest. This is “news” in Washington, D.C., but in New Orleans it’s called laissez les bon temps rouler.

Whatever happened to Matt Drudge? – The Drudge Report once was a great place to get a balanced cross-section of actual news. For many years it was the best news accumulator site on the web. But about two years ago, Drudge went completely off into the fake news establishment universe. Maybe he was threatened, maybe he was bought off – who knows? Whatever the motivation, his site is useless at this point. Here’s what it looks like this morning:

Who needs the Weekly World News anymore when Matt Drudge is around?

In all seriousness, there was a time when Matt Drudge had a good nose for when the Democrats and establishment media were lying to us in unison. That’s the only reason why the Monica Lewinsky story ever made it into the public domain, in fact, given that several major establishment news outlets had had that story for months but intended to keep it quiet.

But now Drudge just uses his site as a tool to push out and perpetuate these Democrat fantasy plays. Which of course is why everyone should stop visiting his site and rely on Whatfinger.com instead.

Everyone should feel nothing but sympathy and pity for Greta Thunberg. – Not sympathy for anything she has to say about “climate change” – that’s all just parroting alarmist talking points prepared for her by a bunch abusive adults. If you missed it, take the 2 minutes required to watch her very deranged speech given at the UN on Monday:

No, we should feel sympathy for the way this 16 year-old child has been abused by those adult activists who put her up to all of this and by pretty much every other adult she has ever had in her life. As Tiana Lowe, writing in the Washington Examiner, put it recently:

“The case of Greta Thunberg is even more egregious. Thunberg began suffering from depression as a child, by her own admission, in part because she learned about climate change at age eight. She was later diagnosed with autism and obsessive compulsive disorder and gradually became despondent as she obsessed over her fear of climate change. She developed mutism and an eating disorder so severe that she once went two months without food, and she stopped going to school. Her only sibling, a sister named Beata, also suffers from Asperger’s and OCD, as well as ADHD.

“Now tell me, does it seem healthy to place a child with this many mental illnesses under the spotlight of public scrutiny, with a sole focus on the very phenomenon and associated alarmism that triggered her in the first place?”

Indeed, her mother – a former opera performer – is so desperate for attention that she actually wrote a book about her child’s many mental issues. Both of her parents – her father is an actor and director – are so uncaring about their child’s well-being that they have allowed her to be used as a poster child for a what is without any real question anymore a global religious cult.

The leaders of that global cult, having succeeded in frightening this poor child and millions of others across the globe with their alarmist nonsense that has spread throughout our education systems and news media, are only too happy to put her up on stage at a global event. There, she comes across to any thinking person who is not a part of the cult as exactly what she is: A very frightened little child who has no adult in her life to cares enough about her to offer her some comfort.

She deserves our sympathy. She deserves our pity. And the adults who surround her deserve nothing but our scorn.

In his opening monologue Monday night, Tucker Carlson got it exactly right when he compared the religious cult’s use of Thunberg to terrorists’ use of children as human shields:

“When you use children to demand power, they become a kind of human shield. You can hide safely behind them. No one can criticize you. Anyone who would do that is someone who would literally do anything to seize control, and that’s exactly what they are doing.”

This is child abuse.

That is all.

AOC is Not Stupid – She’s Just “Educated”

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Don’t blame her, she’s just like 74% of other Democrats. – The pathetically misinformed, abject ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told an interviewer on Monday that  “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?”

Yes, friends, it seems our planet has an expiration date now, and AOC has determined it to be the year 2031. So, to hell with saving for retirement or paying those bills, let’s just all go out to Vegas and blow it all on slot machines and craps tables between now and then.

Seriously, the most fascinating part of that statement is the phrase “how are we gonna pay for it?” Her dimwitted interviewer lacked the presence of mind to ask her to explain what, exactly, would we be paying for between now and then, and how rapidly we’d have to ‘pay for it’ in order to stop the dreaded boogeyman “Climate Change” from ending our world in a dozen years.  But wouldn’t it have been fun to have this particular socialist ignoramus’s answer on video so we could make fun of it for the next dozen years, and the dozen years after that?

I mean, do we have to, like, pay for it all now, Alex?  Fork over that 30 trillion dollars we don’t have to do what – build gigantic vacuum cleaners to suck all of that evil carbon dioxide out of the air? Can we wait for a few years and then “pay for it”, maybe just put a down payment on it now? And what do we do when all of that CO2 has vanished down the nozzles of those gigantic machines and all the trees and plants die and everybody’s starving? Do we fork over another 30 trillion or so we don’t have to put it all back out again? Or is starving everyone part of the socialist play, too? One can only imagine what might have come out of her never-closed mouth had the right question been asked.

Not even the alarmists at the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claim to have discovered the world’s expiration date.  The most they’re willing to say is that we might have 3 degrees of warming between now and 2100.  The Pope of the Church of Climate Change his own self, Al Gore, keeps saying “we only have 10 years left!!!” to address Climate Change’s ravages on our planet, but he’s been saying that every year for the last 30 years, so it’s always hard to figure out exactly what he means at any given time and temperature.

But now the new darling of the Democrat left says we only have a dozen years to live, and hey, 74% of all of our country’s self-described Democrats agree and are willing to vote for her for president, if only she were old enough to run.  Yes, friends, I swear I’m not making this stuff up:

“Exclusive: A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president. (She’s 29; you have to be at least 35.)”

How does one even respond to that finding? What would an actual sentient human being even say to a friend who came up to them and said he or she would just love to vote for possibly the most ignorant public figure on the entire planet if she were on the presidential ballot? Is it the appeal of voting for someone whose mind is apparently just a blank slate through which false information flows like a rancid river?

We should not blame AOC for any of this, by the way.  She is simply the personification of the state of education in America today. If you follow her Twitter feed, it becomes quickly obvious that she is not dimwitted, not what you would call a “stupid” person. She’s actually pretty quick-witted and funny when she wants to be.

No, what she is is hopelessly ignorant.  She says all sorts of things that in and of themselves are incredibly wrong and stupid, but that’s only because she is just regurgitating what she was taught in school. She obviously managed to obtain a college degree without learning a single actual true fact, but has survived in life and managed to get elected to congress based on her wits and innate intelligence. That’s actually pretty impressive when you think about it.

Like everyone else, AOC is the product of her upbringing and education. Her parents didn’t fail her – her upbringing was apparently very solid since she is poised, articulate, confident and carries herself very well in public.

What failed AOC is what has failed so many millions of Americans over the decades (apparently that includes 74% of self-described Democrats) and that is our education system. Like so many other people we all run into and deal with in our daily lives, AOC is not stupid, she just doesn’t know anything that’s actually true.

It’s not what AOC knows that’s the problem, it’s what she thinks she knows that just isn’t so. Of course, that just makes her a pretty typical Democrat member of congress, doesn’t it?

Wait, who? – Hey, y’all, Pete Buttigieg is running for president!  Isn’t that fantastic?  Oh, happy day! Buttieg 2020!!!!! Wait, B-u-t-t-i-g-i-e-g 2020!!!!!! Yeah, that’s right.  Woooo-hoooo!!!!!!!!

Uh, ok, who exactly is Pete Buttigieg? Why, he’s the 37 year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana. At least if the Washington Post is to be believed, and yes, I know that’s pretty much a crap shoot in and of itself these days.

Uh, ok, so how do you pronounce his last name?  Hell, I don’t know – maybe AOC can tell you.

*sigh*

The Church of Climate Change Adds Another Arrow to Trump’s Quiver

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News your fake news media will pretty much ignore. –  Erik Solheim, the fake Chief of the UN’s fake environment division, resigned this week after it was revealed that he had racked up travel expenses totaling $488,518 in a span of 668 days.  The UK Guardian reports that Solheim was on the road, traveling on carbon-dioxide-spewing planes, trains and automobiles, for fully 529 of those 668 days, which has to be some sort of record.

The role of the fake agency Solheim led, “UN Environment”, is to highlight “green issues and sustainability.” Obviously, Solheim’s boss decided that his travel bills were neither green nor sustainable.

Although, I have to wonder what the big deal is here.  After all, Solheim’s travel charges pale in comparison to other leaders of the world’s largest leftist religion, i.e. the Climate Scam.

The Pope of the Church of Climate Change, Al Gore, travels all over the world in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet, and lives in a massive home whose carbon footprint is roughly equal to that of Rhode Island. The most visible Cardinal of that false Church, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, lives and flies in similar luxury, and also owns a gasoline-powered yacht that is similar in size to a Chinese aircraft carrier. Gore and DiCaprio each rack up higher bills traveling the world in most weeks than Solheim did in his infamous 668 days, and nobody’s firing them.

And what about all these various “Climate” conferences this religious cult holds in various parts of the world 10-12 times every year? These conferences see thousands of cultists, along with the Church’s royalty, clogging air traffic and overwhelming local airport capacities with their private jets and tying up 100% of the assets of gas-and-diesel-fueled limousine services for weeks at a time.

My point is not to defend Solheim for his profligacy – paid in large part by U.S. taxpayers, by the way – but to note just how ordinary he really is when taken in context of the Climate Scam movement writ large. In a rather perverse sense, maybe that’s why the U.S. news media is studiously ignoring his story.

Hey, why are we a part of the U.N. again? – Perhaps Solheim’s story, pedestrian as it seems in the context of the Climate Scam, is relevant in another way: It does provide just one more reason for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) to question the wisdom of the U.S. remaining a member of this despicable and depraved collection of despots, thugs and grifters from around the world. Solheim is one of the grifters, and the U.N. employs thousands of them.

The President regularly questions the utility of the U.S. remaining a part of the international body, whose main mission in recent years has been to issue resolutions condemning America’s most important ally in the Middle East, Israel.  The most recent example of this came on November 16, when the question was raised once again in the wake of the U.N.’s annual vote on a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the Golan Heights.

Donald Trump is going to be President for at least two more years, and most likely for another six. The despots, thugs and grifters at the U.N. just keep poking this increasingly impatient bear, and do so at their own risk.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

 

Why do liberals hate women, Part 6,563. – In a move as predictable as the sun rising in the East, the LA County District Attorney’s office refused to bring charges against The Creepy Porn Lawyer for his alleged assault on his girlfriend a couple of weeks ago:

Thus, after more than a year of screaming “we must believe all women in these domestic abuse accusations!!!!” and the Creepy Porn Lawyer himself attempting to derail a Supreme Court nominee with false charges of rape, liberals in power demonstrate one more time that their rhetoric where protecting abused women is concerned is utterly meaningless.

Ladies, wake up.  The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you. It just elected a woman-abusing thug to become Attorney General in Minnesota. One of its judges just ruled a law banning genital mutilation of females to be unconstitutional (think about that). That Party has been completely co-opted by radical Islamism, trans-genderism and the woman-and-child-abusing Hollywood culture.

You continue voting for its candidates at your own risk. How many more examples do you need?

That is all.

Our Fake News Media – The Willing Enablers of Democrat Depravity

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Another Trump tour de force. – One day after giving possibly the greatest pro-America speech ever delivered by any U.S. representative at the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) conducted one of the most amazing, wide-ranging press conferences ever conducted by a president in an international setting.  It was filled with humor, biting commentary on current events, amazing new nuggets of information (such as the President’s preference that oily Rod Rosenstein stay on the job at least for now) and even another humiliation of CNN’s pathetic, preening peacock Jim Acosta.

Some of the best highlights of the press conference can be found here.  You can no doubt watch it in its entirety at any of a dozen places – just Google it.

The humorless fake news media naturally blasted and intentionally mis-reported the presser, just as they had blasted and mis-reported the President’s speech.  Which is what the fake news media does in this country.

The takeaway, though, is this:  President Trump should be doing these press conferences far more often.  He is far and away his own most effective spokesman, and he needs to stop allowing his communications advisors to bottle him up.  He should hold a presser just like he did yesterday every Friday afternoon and let it dominate the news cycle for every weekend.  It is maddening that he continues to take such bad communications advice from his team.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer takes things a step too far. – Here’s what I wrote on my Facebook page yesterday, shortly after the Creepy Porn Lawyer had made his latest outrageous effort to attract attention by exploiting another woman:

I gotta tell ya, I’m beginning to think the Creepy Porn Lawyer is actually a Trump plant.

I think this latest stunt is going to completely backfire on the Democrats. I think it is so outrageously unbelievable that it is going to infuriate millions of ordinary Americans who might have to this point been on the fence about the nomination.

Think about it: Brett Kavanaugh has been subjected to SIX FBI BACKGROUND CHECKS. These things are like full-fledged anal examinations in which every aspect of your life is looked at, all the way back to your birth. Every friend and acquaintance you have ever had is contacted by the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION and asked about your character.

So now we are expected to believe that, during the course of SIX of these intrusive investigations, the FBI failed to come across a shred of information from any of the hundreds of people they spoke with about a drugging, rape-train operation that Kavanaugh and several friends operated for more than TWO YEARS?

I have never been more disgusted in my life about anything outside of my own personal behavior than I am right now. I swear, if I was in the same room as Avenatti today, one of us would not leave it alive.

This is vile, demented and just plain evil.

[End]

Here’s a personal incident that illustrates just how utterly ridiculous this woman’s claim truly is:  In the summer of 1974, a friend and I got the big idea to imitate the streaker who ran behind David Niven at that year’s Academy Awards show by streaking through the parking lot at a local Circle K food store where our high school friends liked to gather on Friday evenings.

Within about 30 seconds of our little frolic across the asphalt, a call from a horrified fellow high school student had gone into the local police department, and my pal and I were arrested a few hours later.  That’s how socially unacceptable doing such a thing was in a small town in America at that time.

But the Creepy Porn Lawyer wants you all to believe that our Supreme Court Nominee spent no fewer than two solid years running a punch-spiking, girl-drugging, rape-train party ring in a small town among the students at a high school with a total enrollment of about 400, and nobody called the police, everybody – even the victims – kept it all a big secret, and no one said a word about any of it until 37 years later.  If you are dumb enough to believe any of that, please seek help.

Because, after all, this…is CNN. – Some anonymous guy “came forward” yesterday afternoon to accuse Judge Kavanaugh of raping an unidentified woman on a boat in 1995.  When it was within an hour revealed that this guy was a nutjob who has made violent threats against President Trump, he withdrew his accusation.  Naturally, many hours later, CNN still has an uncorrected report up on its website claiming this clown’s accusation represents a fourth accuser.  What else would we expect?

The Fake News Media – depravity’s willing facilitators. – That brings me around to the actual point I want to make in this long and winding piece, which is that the Democrats feel free to engage in the vile, evil, demented behaviors in which they have engaged related to this nomination (and everything else for that matter) because they know they will never be held accountable for doing so by our fake news media.

While most of us – me included – have expressed our disgust over what we have witnessed during the confirmation process by targeting the Democrats who have organized and paid for all of it, that is really missing the point to some extent.  Because the root of the problem here is that our country no longer has a legitimate, functioning fourth estate.

The freedom of the press guaranteed in the first amendment to the Constitution was placed there because the founders of this country knew it was critical to have a free press that would hold those in power accountable for their bad actions.  The history of mankind that had gone before the founding of our country clearly told them that, where no such accountability exists, political organizations would almost without exception resort to destructive behavior in the pursuit of political power.

In our society, the role of the free press is supposed to be to serve as that watchdog, that entity that will inform the public whenever the members of either major party engage in behavior that is destructive to the foundations of our republic.  Sadly, in recent years, our major media outlets have completely abandoned that role in the name of the pursuit of their demented view of what constitutes “social justice.”  The belief that conservatism and capitalism are evil is ingrained into their tiny minds by the leftist professors who dominate our nation’s college campuses, and that belief system colors everything they do once they are on the job.

The result is that our major media organizations, with only a handful of exceptions, now perform as nothing more than propaganda outlets for the Democrat Party, and more specifically for its increasingly radicalized voter base.  The consequence of that is what we have witnessed on our television screens for the past two years, as the Democrat Party funds and coordinates the rising level of leftist violence on our streets, and mounts the disgraceful political circus designed to destroy not just the reputation of Judge Kavanaugh, but his family and his life as well.

For all you Millennials, there is this great book called “Animal Farm” that your parents and grandparents were forced to read when they were in high school.  That book perfectly describes how a society degenerates into absolute chaos when there is no societal mechanism for holding those in power accountable for their bad actions.  You should go out to Amazon and pay a few bucks to read it, because it perfectly describes what is happening in our society today, thanks to the Democrats and their willing enablers in our national fake news media.

Trump UN Speech Provides an Inspiring Example of American Leadership

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Donald Trump was at the UN on Tuesday. There he delivered one of the most grand, soaring and inspirational speeches ever delivered by a U.S. president.  It will be largely ignored and/or mis-portrayed by our fake national news media who hate everything this President says or does, but it will not and cannot be ignored by the array of despotic, globalist thugs and grifters who by and large make up the UN general assembly.

The President drew a stark contrast between himself and his four immediate predecessors in the job, standing firmly up for the sovereign rights of America and its people and culture, while at the same time extending the hand of peace and cooperation on terms that, if accepted by the other nations in the room, would be mutually beneficial for everyone.  It was a magnificent moment of true American leadership that we could have never expected from Barack Obama or other globalist members of either major U.S. political party.

The full text of the speech can be found here, and I urge everyone to read it.  But I want to print the closing 500 words or so here, because they are especially inspiring and do a great job of summing up the major points the President was making today.

===========================

Looking around this hall where so much history has transpired, we think of the many before us who have come here to address the challenges of their nations and of their times. And our thoughts turn to the same question that ran through all their speeches and resolutions, through every word and every hope. It is the question of what kind of world will we leave for our children and what kind of nations they will inherit.

The dreams that fill this hall today are as diverse as the people who have stood at this podium, and as varied as the countries represented right here in this body are. It really is something. It really is great, great history.

There is India, a free society over a billion people, successfully lifting countless millions out of poverty and into the middle class.

There is Saudi Arabia, where King Salman and the Crown Prince are pursuing bold new reforms.

There is Israel, proudly celebrating its 70th anniversary as a thriving democracy in the Holy Land.

In Poland, a great people are standing up for their independence, their security, and their sovereignty.

Many countries are pursuing their own unique visions, building their own hopeful futures, and chasing their own wonderful dreams of destiny, of legacy, and of a home.

The whole world is richer, humanity is better, because of this beautiful constellation of nations, each very special, each very unique, and each shining brightly in its part of the world.

In each one, we see awesome promise of a people bound together by a shared past and working toward a common future.

As for Americans, we know what kind of future we want for ourselves. We know what kind of a nation America must always be.

In America, we believe in the majesty of freedom and the dignity of the individual. We believe in self-government and the rule of law. And we prize the culture that sustains our liberty -– a culture built on strong families, deep faith, and fierce independence. We celebrate our heroes, we treasure our traditions, and above all, we love our country.

Inside everyone in this great chamber today, and everyone listening all around the globe, there is the heart of a patriot that feels the same powerful love for your nation, the same intense loyalty to your homeland.

The passion that burns in the hearts of patriots and the souls of nations has inspired reform and revolution, sacrifice and selflessness, scientific breakthroughs, and magnificent works of art.

Our task is not to erase it, but to embrace it. To build with it. To draw on its ancient wisdom. And to find within it the will to make our nations greater, our regions safer, and the world better.

To unleash this incredible potential in our people, we must defend the foundations that make it all possible. Sovereign and independent nations are the only vehicle where freedom has ever survived, democracy has ever endured, or peace has ever prospered. And so we must protect our sovereignty and our cherished independence above all.

When we do, we will find new avenues for cooperation unfolding before us. We will find new passion for peacemaking rising within us. We will find new purpose, new resolve, and new spirit flourishing all around us, and making this a more beautiful world in which to live.

So together, let us choose a future of patriotism, prosperity, and pride. Let us choose peace and freedom over domination and defeat. And let us come here to this place to stand for our people and their nations, forever strong, forever sovereign, forever just, and forever thankful for the grace and the goodness and the glory of God.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the nations of the world.

================================

Magnificent.  Let it sink in, and then think of what kind of speech would have been delivered to the UN by a President Hillary Clinton.  Then, after you’ve done that, thank the good Lord for his divine providence of intervention into the 2016 presidential election, because that’s what it was.

That is all.

While the Fake News Media Tears its Hair out, Trump Achieves Major Policy Wins

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

While the fake news media was sleeping…  – Hey, y’all, while all the lunatic democrats and fake journalists were tearing their hair out and tossing hissy fits about this fake border issue yesterday, President Trump used the opportunity to take the following actions:

– He pulled the U.S. out of the worthless UN Human Rights Council, which has been nothing more than a forum for bashing Israel; and
 
– He issued an executive order reversing Obama’s extremely idiotic 2010 Oceans Policy, replacing it with a policy of his own.  Thus, yet another aspect of the extreme un-American Obama legacy bites the dust, thanks to Donald J. Trump.
 
And the fake news media barely mentioned the Human Rights Council pullout, and still hasn’t even noticed the Oceans Policy reversal. Cool, huh?
For those unfamiliar with it, here is a good write-up on the Oceans Policy executive order:

Yesterday, President Trump issued an executive order from the White House establishing directions for revoking and revamping the Obama 2010 oceans policy. The Obama policy adopted a comprehensive management plan for the nation’s oceans, coastal waters and the Great Lakes. The new direction proposed by the Trump administration emphasizes economic and security concerns over marine conservation, sustainable use and climate change. Moving a national ocean policy away from data collection to providing opportunities and encouragement to state and local agencies for managing and guiding marine activities.

The Trump order stresses economic and security concerns. Stating that U.S. waters “are foundational to the economy, security, global competitiveness, and well-being of the United States.”

The Executive Order states that: “Ocean industries employ millions of Americans and support a strong national economy. Domestic energy production from Federal waters strengthens the Nation’s security and reduces reliance on imported energy.”

Obama’s policy was “protect, maintain, and restore the health and biological diversity” and boost “conservation and sustainable uses” of resources, and using “the best available science and knowledge to inform” management decisions and “understand, respond, and adapt to a changing global environment” have been superseded by the Trump Administration’s new priorities.

President Trump’s priority is directing federal agencies to coordinate on providing “economic, security, and environmental benefits for present and future generations of Americans,” and stresses the need to “promote the lawful use of the ocean by agencies, including United States Armed Forces.” A Trump policy priority is to “facilitate the economic growth of coastal communities and promote ocean industries,” “advance ocean science and technology,” “enhance America’s energy security,” and ensure that “Federal regulations and management decisions do not prevent productive and sustainable use of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes waters.”.

So, a shift from a policy that is based on a leftist fantasy to a policy that emphasizes and promotes the gigantic economic opportunities and national security enhancements offered by the major waters of the United States.  Three years ago, this would have been the lead story on every evening newscast as liberals responded to the shift with their typical lunatic hysteria.  Today, it isn’t even a blink on the screen.

Genius.

That is all.

Nancy Pelosi: Leadership Through XX Chromosomes

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Presumably, they picked Mugabe because Idi Amin is dead. – If you wonder why supporters of President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing that) have no regard at all for international multi-lateral organizations, look no further than the decision by the sleazebags who run the World Health Organization (WHO) to name Zimbabwe thug Robert Mugabe as its newest “World Health Ambassador.”  Yes, Robert Mugabe – I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  For those out of this particular loop, Mugabe has brutalized the Zimbabwean population for decades now, murdering and maiming its citizens on a scale comparable to Fidel Castro.  During his reign of terror, Mugabe has utterly destroyed the nation’s healthcare system for the vast majority of the population there, a system that was once the envy of Africa.  The situation with healthcare in Zimbabwe is so awful, in fact, that Mugabe himself goes to other countries for his own treatments.
  • So naturally, this is the guy who the utterly corrupt people in charge at the WHO, a UN-affiliated organization, choose to honor.  It shouldn’t even need saying at this point, but stuff like this is why Donald Trump is President today.
  • Hey, why not deed that spot to Rep. Clowny McPartyBarn of Florida?  Xe’d be great, and we’re pretty sure xe’s a woman. – Nancy Pelosi appeared with the four screechers on “The View” Friday, and told them that the reason why she needs to remain the head of the Democrat minority in the U.S. House of Representatives is based entirely on her gender.  Not kidding:  “I was ready to go if Hillary won, have a woman at the top of the table, protecting the Affordable Care Act, which is to me similar to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid,” she told the assembled hosts, but she said that she was the only woman at her table at a White House dinner a month ago, so  “that’s why I have to stay there, to be one of the top women, top people at the table.”
  • Well, darn, if the only qualification to be House Minority Leader these days is being a woman, there are plenty of other Democrat women in the House.  Why not give the spot to Maxine Waters?  Doesn’t she count?  How about Debbie Wasserman-Schulz?  She as corrupt as the people at the WHO, and even ran the whole Democrat Party into the ground while Obama was President – why not her?  Or how about Linda Sanchez?  She’s a woman, she’s Hispanic, AND she’s from California, too.  She can sit at a table as well as any other woman, right?  Or how about Clowny McPartyBarn?  She’s a woman, plus she’d be the first rodeo clown to ever become minority leader.  Why not her?
  • Altogether, there are currently 62 Democrat women serving in the House of Representatives today.  If the only qualification to be the Democrats’ minority leader is the possession of two X chromosomes, then why should the Party allow itself to continue to be saddled with SanFranNan’s X chromosomes as its public face?
  • Of course, the truth here is that conservatives everywhere are thrilled to death that Nancy Pelosi remains the face of the Democrat Party, and are hoping and praying she will remain its face through at least the 2018 mid-term elections, and longer.  Her ongoing presence as the dominant Democrat on the national stage virtually ensures that the GOP will increase its Senate majority next year and hold onto its majority in the House.  Republicans love, love, love having SanFranNan to campaign against, and will do anything they can to ensure she continues to cling to power.
  • Speaking of corrupt women who just won’t go away, Hillary Clinton, still shamelessly hawking her terrible book in Britain, told an interviewer on Saturday that she and hubby Bill seriously considered not attending the Trump inauguration, but were convinced otherwise only when they learned the Bushes and Carters would be in attendance.  That claim came just two days after she told another interviewer that she and Bill never even thought about not going, because attending was their duty.  The woman would rather lie than tell the truth, even when it does her no good.  She will never change.

Just another day SanFranNan’s America.

That is all.

Trump Delivers A Speech Ordinary Americans Have Waited 30 Years To Hear

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • In response to President Donald Trump’s (I never get tired of typing that) soaring speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Venezuelan Envoy Jorge Arreaza said “For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or President Trump in 2017.”  Well, yes, that is exactly why Mr. Trump is President of the United States today.
  • Mr. Arreaza, of course, thought his statement was an insult to the current U.S. President, as did every fake reporter in the fake news media, many of whom were no doubt getting major cases of the vapors as they listened to the President’s speech.  CNN’s Jim Acosta publicly wet his diapers over the decision by President Trump to refer to North Korea’s dictator as “Rocket Man.”  ABC’s Terry Moran said the President’s statement that the U.S. may find it necessary to “destroy” North Korea borders on a war crime, apparently unaware that his hero Barack Obama had made the very same threat towards the Norks while he was occupying the White House.
  • Can it be a coincidence that America’s community of fake journalists, its population of liberal/progressive/socialist/communist voters and politicians, the snakes and skunks who infest the Deep State in Washington, and leaders of despotic regimes around the globe all had exactly the same reaction to a speech in which the President of the United States emphasized he plans to put the interests of the American people above the interests of the globalist community?  Well, no, it’s no coincidence at all, is it?
  • Meanwhile, the normal people of America – the people who inhabit the 95% of the country outside of New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and San Francisco – have been waiting 30 years to hear an American President deliver exactly this speech, a speech before the international globalist community that firmly places their safety, their security, their families, and their prosperity as the President’s number one priority in his job.  These Americans have spent the last three decades literally longing to hear such a speech from George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Hussein Obama, and have come away uniformly disappointed at every turn.  Normal Americans were especially hopeful for a President who puts their interests first after the unending, eight year-long apology tour by Barack Hussein.
  • So Mr. Arreaza was right, if unwittingly so, to say that at times it was hard to know if we were hearing a speech from Donald Trump or Ronald Reagan, because the last time Americans heard such a speech escape the lips from their national leader, it came from Mr. Reagan.
  • The last time Americans heard such a speech from one of their Presidents, it was June 12, 1987.  Ronald Reagan, speaking to an audience of international leaders from a podium placed in front of the Berlin Wall, said “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
  • Two years later, that wall came down, and the Soviet Union collapsed.  These were lines that Mr. Reagan’s squeamish advisors had repeatedly removed from his speech for fear of offending the “international community”, only to have the President himself re-insert the passage to their great frustration.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • No doubt we will find out in coming days that several lines spoken by President Trump in Tuesday’s speech were placed there against the will of his own squeamish advisors, some of whom are globalists who live in fear of offending the Maduros and Merkels of the world.  It’s a safe bet that much of the President’s strong rhetoric aimed at the despotic dictators of North Korea, Iran and Venezuela were spoken over and above the disapproval of H.R. McMaster and John Kelly.  It is similarly safe to bet that much of the President’s stern language scolding of the U.N. itself over its wastefulness and ineffectiveness were delivered over the objections of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.  That’s courage, that’s vision, that is presidential leadership.
  • So Mr. Arreaza had it right:  For 40 minutes on Tuesday, we had an American President delivering a speech to the international community that could easily have been delivered by the Great Ronald Wilson Reagan.  The time and place were different, the accent and cadence of the two speakers are different, but the courage, leadership and rhetoric on display were completely indistinguishable.
  • In the end, this key early passage set the tone for President Trump’s entire speech:  “In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people where it belongs.”
  • Those are two sentences Ronald Reagan would have been happy to deliver as well, and those two sentences explain why this is a speech normal Americans loved, and the globalists detest.  God Bless Donald Trump for having the courage necessary to be mistaken for Ronald Reagan.  It’s been 30 long years since anyone had that to say about an American president.

Just another day in Donald Trump’s America.

That is all.
