The Underreported Success 
of the Trump Presidency

American Thinker

May 20, 2017

Something is afoot.   Even the circumspect Tucker Carlson has been warning how divided and close to losing it we are.   The left is full of “passionate intensity” (a euphemism), while many of us on the right are lacking conviction to fight for good.

However, there are a lot of positive moves coming from Washington, and it’s important that we highlight them, since the media won’t.  We have a gifted group in power, they are doing what is necessary to allow us to hold.   As conservatives, it’s important to understand what their accomplishments are, how they are helping, and do what we can in support.

The underreported:

While the Democrat/media complex tries to whip their base, and the country into a frenzy, this administration is putting good things in place.   First and foremost for our culture is the restoration of law and order.   That begins with giving the respect due to our law enforcement officials, which has been a hallmark of this administration.  The outrageous demonization of law enforcement by the previous administration is gone.  The ongoing praise of and cooperation with our police from Trump et al is not only refreshing, it’s going to have a long term positive effect.  Violent demonstrators are no longer being coddled (except in Berkeley), instead they are prosecuted.   Eventually, they won’t even get away with being lawless thugs in Berkeley.

The existing border laws are being enforced.  Illegal crossings are down 70%.  ICE agents have been reenergized, rounding up criminals and deporting them.   Bad guys are on notice.  Drug trafficking will slow.  MS-13 is being fought.  This is just the beginning.  The Attorney General is simply enforcing laws that exist.   With Trump’s resolve to control the borders, these border issues will get better, and become reasonably controlled.  If this is successful, the nation will be able to take a deep breath.  Genuine assimilation will have a chance to succeed.

Having been a GOP poll watcher in a Democrat precinct, I have witnessed the Democrat drive to encourage vote fraud.   Watching my Democrat counterpart demand that anyone be allowed to vote, regardless of identification, regardless of being on the precinct rolls, regardless of their legal status as citizens -- I knew this was a problem.  Trump was laughed at when he claimed that Hillary’s popular vote margin was due to vote fraud, yet having been up close and personal, I am certain that more than just a couple of percentage points of voter fraud has gone on many places for many years, including 2016. 

We now have an administration that intends to do something to ensure vote fraud is curtailed.  A few may have complained before, but no member of the GOP has seriously challenged this crime.  The new executive order, along with the new investigative commission is long overdue.  It is certain they will allow states to clean up voter rolls, press for the common-sense demand that voters have proper ID, are US citizens, and vote only once.   Other ways to ensure a true vote will be recommended and put in place.  We can now be assured there will be less Democrat crime on this front; those who commit vote fraud will be fearful of real prosecution, and our precious franchise will see enhanced integrity.  This is an important issue, far more so than discussed.  It’s a great move for our country and it will change elections.

Another major push is for economic revitalization.  The administration’s proposed policies in this area are wonderful.  The response of American business to the Trump administration is a good indicator.  The undoing of so many bad regulations from prior administrations is one giant step, with more underway.  The unleashing of our energy resources and businesses has been a major win.  The first step in positive change to the failing Obamacare is a good sign.   If health care legislation, and economic reforms pass, we will be on an economic trajectory that will be exciting, one that will repudiate the failings of Obama’s policies, and we can be confident of another Reagan style recovery.

In foreign relations, nothing has been a bigger surprise than Team Trump’s many successes.  In spite of the media perception of disarray, the Trump team has put together a burgeoning alliance in the Middle East, one that includes Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt and others.  This alliance will be key in dealing with the noxious mess left by the Obama/Clinton years.  When Iran tries to flex its might, we will need the repair that the Trump team is working on.

Likewise in Asia.  The disaster left us by the feckless Clinton/Albright deal with North Korea is being navigated well.  There is no easy fix to having been duped by a mad dictator into enabling his acquisititon of nuclear weapons.   Democrats can take solace that most people don’t know the degree of stupidity of their policies  with North Korea, and don’t yet grasp the elevl of peril. Trump’s clear skill in negotiating and forming relations with China’s premier was extraordinary.  That China is helping us with the Korean mess, perhaps for the first time, is a testament to Trump’s skills.

All of this as a reminder that there is much to be praised since the Trump administration took office.  The leftist media wants us to think all is horrible, every day being a constitutional crisis that will end the world, and it’s all Trump’s fault.  Truth be known, it’s the reverse.  Trump’s successes are finally beginning to overcome the awful years of the Obama/media collusion and their inept failures.   Failures in virtually everything they did.

These examples of unreported Trump team success are remarkable.  The country is changing direction.  In the face of almost total media opposition, the intransigence and destructive behavior of an entire political party, good things have been done, and better things are on the horizon. 
This is why we supported Trump, this is why we voted for him and still support his administration whole heartedly.  America is reviving, be prepared to take part in this new American renaissance, because it’s coming.  Through the smog, haze, and ugliness of the Democrat/media complex, you can barely see it.  Nonetheless, it’s there; here it comes.

Be encouraged

Still winning? You bet!


  1. Thank you for this morale boost, sir!

    President Trump is a law and order man. That is most likely what pisses off the left the most.

  2. Trump's Bigliest FanMay 22, 2017 at 7:57 AM

    I'm encouraged. Bigly encouraged. Nobody is as encouraged as I am, believe me.

    1. Whom do you think you're kidding, farceur?

      Certainly not I!

  3. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. This thread is not about President Obama's FAILINGS; it is about President Trump's SUCCESSES.

  4. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. This thread is not itended to be a showcase for extraneous, nonsensical gossip about foolish people who do not matter. Instead, we mean to concentrate on the POSITIVE ASPECTS of President's Trump's accomlishments to date.

      If you don't bother to read the post, and don't want to relate your remarks to its content, please DON'T COMMENT.

    2. Well sir, I thought an update on Billy Bush poking his girlish head back up after trying to Sabotage Trump's campaign was pertinent!

      Point is, as your fine article states, they keep firing at President Trump, but he just keeps rolling along with his agenda.

      My apologies, I guess I need to read the fine print better.

    3. Were doing our best to encourage POSITVE thinking. We;re also trying to discourage dwelling on minutiae.

      Besides, I don't think Billy B. took it upon himself to try to damage Mr. Trump's chances in the election. I'm sure that untoward incident in the past was cynically USED by DNC operatives, although we know only too well how the Bush Family has resented Donald Trump for humiliating their Jeb. Understandable even if unjustifiable.

  5. Thank you for posting this morale boost!

    Law and order! DemonRats hate that.

    1. Pease thank David Prentice of American Thinker, not I.

      HE wrote the article. I only reprinted it, because I thought it had great value.

      I'm glad you concur,

  6. In foreign relations, nothing has been a bigger surprise than Team Trump’s many successes. In spite of the media perception of disarray, the Trump team has put together a burgeoning alliance in the Middle East, one that includes Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt and others. This alliance will be key in dealing with the noxious mess left by the Obama/Clinton years. When Iran tries to flex its might, we will need the repair that the Trump team is working on.

    I hate to use the word "reset," but I think that yesterday President Trump attempted a long-needed reset with the Arab nations of the Middle East.

    Trump's carefully worded Riyadh speech was quite daring -- particularly because it was delivered on the soil of Arabia, yet gave Saudi Arabia an ultimatum.

    The House of Saud now has a reason to reform. Saudi Arabia's days of living high on oil are over.

    1. President Trump is truly indomitable as well as indefatigable. It never occurs to him even to CONSIDER giving up, or giving in to his adversaries.

      He reminds me of the story of John Paul Jones, captain of the warship Bonhomme Richard. I'm sure you know it better than I, but others may not.

      The Bonhome Richard suffered severe damage from enemy ships, caught fire, and threatened to sink, but John Paul Jones shouted above the fray to the commander of the Serapis, the enemy ship which had so damaged the Bonhomme Richard, "I have not yet begun to fight."

      Against all odds John Paul Jones WON that battle, took command of the Serapis, and transferred his men to safety aboard the conquered vessel. The Bonhomme Richard sank the next day.

      He is also noted for saying "If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.

  7. Forget most of FNC to bring out any of Trump's successes. Instead, go to Fox Business Channel and watch Lou Dobbs.

    1. Good advice! FOX has become a travesty of its former self, yet the Fox BUSINESS channel retains the basic Conservative-Libertaran orientation on which the Fox organization built its reputation.

      How long FBC will be permitted to function in its present capacity remains to be seen. Only time will tell ...

  8. Trump's Welcome in Saudi Arabia was filled with tough words and action!
    Unlike the corrupt left wing “Nut Jobs” who complain about the “Russian Connections” or the on the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals in the United States who tried to paint Trump as anti-Islamic, and who cats like a true leader should when trying to combat the terrorists. And unlike Obama bowing to the Saudi King or giving a speech long on apologies and false moral equivalence in Cairo in 2009 Trump's speech [full text] was aimed solely on combating terrorist ideologies. He did so before an "unprecedented" gathering of leaders from Muslim nations.
    Quite a contrast with the start of Obama's presidency and his speech in Cario. .
    His speech was the strongest, clearest, and to the point delivered by ANY U.S. President had EVER given on the subject of Terrorism. This speech was as strong a speech that ANY American President could give on Arabia's turf. And certainly, in recent memory, NO American President has ever uttered words like this to their faces
    I couldn't be any more impressed with a speech from the president of the United States. And all the Lefties got from it was that he “Bowed Down”! When he actually leaned down to let King Salman to put a medal around his neck, as he is over a foot taller than the presenter was.
    Trump shuck hands with the Saudi King and didn’t bow down as Obama did. And as a American President shouldn’t. There is a huge difference between lowering your head to receive an award and bowing down

    And Maxine Waters is talking “Impeachment”? Some one should ask Maxine Waters if she can even name the amount of senators need for impeachment! I would think that all 123 senators would rather impeach Maxine Waters just for being so dumb! And Chuckie Schumer along with her.
    And as for Hillary Clinton, she let four men die in Benghazi and she ran for the Presidency.

    1. Perhaps so, LOM, but they have little or nothing to do with President Trump's considerable successes s ur president, do they?

    2. Gasoline Maxine is high on her own fumes. She and Pelousi need to be dragged off to an old age home for the criminally insane

      Please understand we MEAN what we SAY, and we SAY what we MEAN.

  10. Well, ol' FT, I have give you kudos for doing something extremely rare in the blogosphere - touting the positive (subjective "positive," but positive nonetheless)!

    I have a few takes on these, of course...

    "(R)estoration of law and order" from the "outrageous demonization of law enforcement by the previous administration," seems superficial and hyperbolic, respectively. However, there is more to it. I worry about a Justice Department turning a blind eye to civil rights abuses at, in particular, the local level. I don't want malicious local police departments, and they ARE out there, to be getting away with abusing people. As it is, we have a police state run amok, with more people in prison than most countries have people. This should concern conservatives and libertarians much more than it does. While they fuss over silly things like be able to say violence-inciting rude things in public, or being allowed to drive around with profane bumper stickers, while they say gun-wielding coercion is the greatest threat to our liberty, they say nothing of the heavy-handed police state. No, instead they demand more of it! Strikes me as hypocrisy.

    The slowing of immigration at the border seems to be a result of fear of the Trump administration. Whatever the cause, it is a good thing. We don't want people just willy-nilly crossing the border, smuggling drugs and indentured labor (slaves). But we've had around net-zero illegal immigration for years now, really ever since the Great Recession. And the drugs and bad guys just seem to keep coming in. We'll see, after a couple of years, if this continues. It's nice to keep the illegal immigration down, but of the drugs and bad guys keep getting in anyway, than it's only accomplishing so much. I worry far more about drug cartels and recidivist violent criminals being endless deported only to endlessly keep coming back than I do about migrant farm hands.

    Voter fraud means nothing to me. Every study on the subject shows it is utterly negligible. But hey, if they want to really look at it, that's fine. Most districts are Red, so I get the feeling they won't really be putting too much effort into this. If they're only going to be looking in blue districts, than it's just partisan nastiness.

    I have no idea what "economic revitalization" you're talking about. All the numbers show we've been on the same path for years now - a slow recovery from a terrible recession. The job market is s#it. Demand is low. Supply-side economics will do nothing. This is not 1980. The entire field has changed. There is no 70% marginal rate to cut, there is no high inflation to fight, interest rates are stuck at the bottom, adjustable only up, cutting their usefulness in half. Cutting corporate taxes is just nominal, as the effective rates are about average, internationally, though they may help spur a little more spending as corporate taxes are really just sales taxes. But the effective change would be so marginal, it's hard to imagine it doing much more than lining the pockets of CEO's and lawyers and some other "small business" professionals who are not suffering from any great tax burden anyway.

    I'm not sure what success Trump has had abroad. I can't think of anything. From everything I've read, foreign governments do not take him seriously. We're going to need more time to see what effect he might have.

    As for destroying Obamacare, some may think that's a great thing, but for millions of people it will be a disaster. It's not that the ACA was so great, it's not, but what we had before was worse.

    What's his administration is doing with the ACA, the CFPA, the FCC, the DoE, is, IMHO, disgusting. Morally degenerate. Some may call it "success," but to "successfully" hurt people and hurt the country is nothing to brag about.


    1. Jersey,
      Some of your points are well taken but the question is how many civil rights violations have been tried since DJT was elected. The anti DJT riots are being contained by law enforcement something that was not accomplished in several incidents while king barry was in office.

      I think you need to rethink your stance on voter fraud. This puts you in conflict with queen -H- and the democratic news networks. They have said repeatedly that massive bus loads of Russians came into the US to vote for DJT. If that if not voter fraud I don't know what is.

      Don't tell those of us who lived through carter and then Reagan that supply side economics doesn't work. As to the 70% marginal rate that rhetoric is garbage and most who have any knowledge of economics knows better. As to small business not suffering from tax burden puts you in the unknowing. Small business does not pay taxes because it is passed through to the owner and if you are not one you have no clue what the last eight years has been like.

      While I agree that changing the structure where corporations pay taxes eliminating BS regulations will help everyone.

      Obamacare is imploding because it is a terrible program and the democrats know it. That is one reason Chuckie is in a hurry to pass it on to the republicans. It cost queen -H- the election, that and busloads of russians. Guess the best way to provide healthcare is a job.

    2. Skud, Trump hasn't had time to do much yet, but from what Sessions and he have said, I fear ne'er-do-well local police departments are going to feel pretty free to get away with nastiness.

      As for voter fraud, I don't think that's what people mean when they say the Russians meddled in the election. If they want to look at the issue, then fine, but I think it's a waste of time.

      Supply-side economics never work, never have. They just make the wealthy wealthier. People are not going to invest in something for which there is no demand. They've done nothing to help anything or anyone else. GHWB coined the term "VooDoo Economics" because he understood that in a capitalist system, it is demand that creates new jobs and growth, innovation and investment, not just the money supply. Why would someone invest money in something if there is no demand for it? Sure, you can create demand, and Lord knows Americans love to buy frivolous crap, but if they don't have the money, then they don't have the demand. It goes to show just how little conservatives understand capitalism and economics. After all these years of economic stagnancy for the vast majority of Americans, you'd think that would be proof enough of the failure of Voo Doo Economics, but no, you guys just keep believing in it. Amazing.

      As for BS regulations, you have to be specific. Which regulation would you like to away with? Things involving safety? Thing involving national security? Things involving embezzlement and money laundering? Which regulation? To be just flat-out anti-regulation is stupid. Pick a regulation. Make and argument for or against it. But don't just throw out simple-minded all-encompassing sound-bites and pretend they will do anything of value or good.

      Obamacare has many problems, but what we had before was worse, and I see the Right offering NOTHING to make things better, they are and have been intentionally undermining it, and that6 sleazy comment about jobs? Yeah, tell that to some kid born with serious congenital health issues. Sleazy. Social Darwinist sleaze at it's worst. 'Get a job with good benefits or go die.' Yeah? Well, fuck you. ;)

      (If you notice, I'm a little more lax with my language horseplay here than I am at other sites, out of respect for them, so please feel free to throw it right back at me, and please don't be too offended, as it's just my personal 'artistic license' to communicate that way). ;)


    3. Oh shoot! I thought I was on my site! OMG! FT - ??? Probably wanna delete or edit my last comment! I'm losing it. Got an epidural today and really shouldn't be blogging!!!


    4. Jersey,

      Like the proof that DJT had Russia influence the election civil rights violations are unsubstantiated under the law and order mantra of the current administration. Did Russia have a hand in leaking -H- emails, probably but keep in mind that they were her emails and her screw up but placing blame on others is the clinton way. Right wing conspiracy until that damn blue dress showed up. If rumor is to be believed BJC was a serial rapist and had several people taken out. Rumor is Obama is a Muslim and not born in the US and his wife hates America. I'm sure some of this is true on all sides but until proven it is rumor.

      The predecessor to obamacare was medicaid. Not great and could have been better with some work but the democrats decided to slam through a plan that is worse than medicaid. One size fits all that few can afford and less than 30% have signed up for. The republicans have had eight years to come up with something and I doubt if they will in another ten years. When I said get a job with benefits and you responded with colorful language, remember that swearing is just a lack of a vocabulary, it was obamacare that forced many companies to discontinue providing healthcare because of the one size fits all. Does the kid born with a congenital defect get help under obamacare, probably not. Prior to obamacare my son could get a high deductible policy for a little over $150 a month. Now he can get a high deductible policy for $600 a month but he is covered if he gets pregnant.

      How many administrations have committed to tax reform. How many have accomplished it. The answer is all/none. How has the dodd/frank act affected small business and their ability to borrow. 21,000 new regulations seems a little excessive even for the all knowing government.

      The democrats have no desire to make the country function again they only care about regaining power and to hell with the citizens.

    5. Skud,

      Thank you for doing my job for me so well. I appreciate your thoughtful comprehensive comments, politeness, and measured tone


      I believe you are well-informed –– but by all the WRONG sources. Unfortunately, you consult too many, heavily biased, agenda-driven leftwing publications, and have absorbed their propaganda, and acquired their talking points.

      I believe that YOU honestly do believe what you tell us. I'm sorry but I simply CANNOT accept most of it, because it flies in the face of Common Sense, and is motivated primarily by a fierce desire to denounce, discredit, defame, derail and DESTROY EVERYTHING emanating from the Right ––or, indeed, ANY source that fails to swallow the Left Wing Agenda and give it full, unquestioning support.

      But I credit you with no Ill Will, Unkindness, or lack of Decency, which is a lot more than I could say about too many who claim to be Conservative-Libertarians.

      You may be wrong much of the time, but I've never thought you were nasty.

      I hope you mght think the same of me. ;-)

    7. Thanks for the get out of jail free card on that one, my friend. ;) I just a three-shot in the back that afternoon. It helps a little, but your kindness always helps a lot. And do think I of you the same way! LOL! Of course!

      I am genuinely concerned with the Justice Department openly reining in federal civil rights oversight of the police. I've been around. I've dealt with some pretty crooked police departments. From the reports I read about what was going on in Ferguson, for example, it's amazing the people did rise up in open revolution against them. They showed amazing restraint!

      The policeman has a LOT of power, the power over your life, and he's really just a lower-middle paid civil servant, often with meager education, regular kinda folk - with the power over your life. Some of these departments out there are very crooked and abusive, with sleazy traps, with ticket and arrest and drug quotas, with targeting certain groups, to flat-out protection or abetting schemes.

      There are almost 20,000 police-type entities in the United States, including college cops, state, city, sheriffs, etc. If even 1% of those have serious problems, that's 200 really bad, dangerous places out there.

      It deeply bothers me that Sessions just came right out and said he's backing off. It's bad enough to do it, but to announce it? It's like he wants it. I am NOT a fan of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions.

      Skud, what we had before had greater inflation, millions fewer insured - including by Medicaid (so your point about that makes no sense at all - millions fewer had Medcaid), hospitals closing at a faster rate, lifetime caps, SOL for people with preexisting conditions, and on and on. Things were not better. And certainly, had the states acted in good faith and worked with instead of actively against it, it would have been much better.


  11. This just in:
    MSNBC Begins pulling back on Russia narrative.. Lowering expectations to ZERO for evidence.
    Showing that the Leftist Have been lying alll along.
    Or just hoping that the Crap they have been flinging against the wall and hoping it would stick.... didn't stick st sll

  12. FT, I liked your selection and agree with the point made about Trump's actual achievements not being acknowledged. It's sickening and disgusting to watch the Trump bashing on both CNN and MSNBC.

    I don't like his coddling of Saudi Arabia. I guess most people forget that Saudi Arabia was involved in some ways in 9/11 at least in issuing passports to the perps or patsies that acted on that day.

    And, of course, Saudi Arabia is at the center of Wahhabi Islam, a violent and extreme form of Islam, and financing its spread across the world.

    1. In a world as complex and fraught with extreme tensiions as ours, Waylon, often there are NO really GOOD CHOICES, but we can't afford just to sit on our hands and do nothing.

      The dictates of REALPOLITIK require us to do busuness with all sorts of people we may not like, personally, or wish to endorse politically. That's ust a Fact of Life.

      I doubt if the president is as much "in love" with the Saudis as the Bush and Clinton clans –– committed flobalsts that they are –– , but I am reasonably sure that President Trump has has had great success with enough large-scale international business deals to understand "people" well enough to deal with them astutely and effectively on almost any level one might imagine.

      Mr. Trump knows, I'm sure, the wisdom contained in this famous maxim: "Keep your friends close, and you enemies closer."

      REALPOLITIK, which all we have in the temporal world, tells us that in politics EFFECTIVENESS trumps MORALITY every single time. In other words WINNING is EVERYTHING –– no matter what they told you in Sunday School.

    2. I suppose that somebody has to keep their eye on the North Star as a guiding light, otherwise we'll all be doing a sword dance and grabbing our ankles, too.

    3. "Render unto Cesar the things that are Caesar's, but unto God the things that are God's."

  13. NO Apologies from our President to the King this time

    1. Of course not. Affecting a posture of modesty, self-effacement, and self-abnegation would never be Donald Trump's style –– which is, of course, one of the primary reasons he got elected.

  14. Shaw's nemesis JoanMay 22, 2017 at 12:17 PM

    President Trumps presidency has revealed the utter contempt the Regressive Left has for our most important freedom, and it's certainly nice to see so many decent, honest liberals make the Regressives look even worse, but I think this has happened more by default than what Trump has done directly.

    Even being in direct conflict with people like Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren and Noam Chomsky won't slow these people down. Their hatred for this country's institutions, traditions and values runs too deep.

    1. That may well be true of Britain, France, Germany and the rest of Europe, but of it were true of US, we would have suffered many more –– and far deadlier –– attacks than we have to date.

      Adn PLEASE refrain form using this blog to smear Obama and the Democrats. "WE" are in ;ower now, and that m/eans that "WE" –– not the Democrats –– are responsible for what happens on "OUR" watch.

      Recriminations are a WASTE of TIME.

  15. This (Trump's successes) all goes to prove, that if a tree falls in the forest (Trump does good), and no one hears it fall (and the Press doesn't report it), it makes no sound (so Trump MUST Tweeet!). :(

  17. The man who Knows it all.May 23, 2017 at 7:27 AM

    Well, here we go again!
    Lets face it, in the past Eight Years, we have done absolutely, and TOTALLY, NOTHING to stop and prevent these terrorist acts from coming, and happening here. Except for Drawing Red Lines, and bringing in UN-Vetted Muslims
    From who knows where!

  18. What has happened yesterday in Manchester, should be an awakening to us all, all of us around the Globe that Islam is a terrorist threat to us all. Especially to the Christians and Jews allover the world.
    And a REMINDER!!!
    A reminder to the Jews, that Israel is the exact site on the earth where human life began, and where their religion began with the story of Abraham and Isaac. And a reminder to Christians, that Jerusalem it is the exact site is where Jesus died on the cross which signaled the true beginning of their religious beliefs.

    To Islam, Jerusalem has never been anything but a place on the map until it became politically significant in their quest to build an empire, and so, for political purposes only, it also became the place to construct a Mosque. Why? Don’t you remember that right after the destruction of the World Trade Center then called “Ground Zero” on September the 11th, had the Muslims wanted to and pressured us so much to construct a Mosque right near by the site. Remember how they were willing to spend hundred of millions of dollars to do so?
    Do you remember how the Former president Barrack Hussain Obama DEFENDED the Muslims to do so!
    Obama said that Muslims have the right to build a mosque near New York's Ground Zero, but he did not say that it was a good idea to do so.
    And the former House Minority Leader John Boehner said "The fact that someone has the right to do something doesn't necessarily make it the right thing to do,"
    President Obama had this all wrong and John Boehner said that he strongly opposed his support for building a mosque near ground zero especially since Islamic terrorists have bragged and celebrated destroying the Twin Towers and killing nearly 3,000 Americans.". "Freedom of religion might provide the right to build the mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero, but Common sense and the Respect for those who lost their lives and loved ones gives sensible reason to build the Mosque someplace else. Ring in the Foot Stepts of Ground Zero was NOT the place for it. Ground Zero is a War Memorial, a burial ground. Respect it."

    And the discussion or should I say the fight against it went on and on for years. Well, this is the same. They do this to “Stick It To Us” To put it right in our faces. And we MUST NOT allow them to do so. We MUST fight them.

    I would like some of these Holier than Thou Liberals for a walk through Arlington Cemetery and learn about the people and stories of Americans and others who have died in service to our country. They should also learn a bit more about the victims of 9/11

  21. As for the Investigation(s) of Donald Trump’s Ties to Russia, and Other Fairy Tales. The democrats are apparently losing their minds. It was FUN FOR A WHILE and I thought they would get over it but apparently not.
    That whole "Russian election interference" thing was made up by CNN and Buzzfeed.
    Also apparently leaking classified information (if done) is only a crime if a Republican does it. Hillary and Huma has been doing it for years and nothing was done about it because She didn’t have any “INTENT”! No isn’t that a crock of crap! Apparently Democrats are ONLY concerned about treason when it comes to Donald Trump!
    Anyone else remember Obama getting caught on an open Mic saying
    to the outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Vladimir Putin should give him more "space" and that "After My Election I Have More Flexibility”! And "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

    And Dmitry Medvedev answered, "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you."
    Going out on a limb here but, I Gotta wonder, WAS THAT WORTH AN INVESTIGATION? WAS THAT TREASONOUS?
    Congress should have spent the last eight years working that, but they apparently had better things to do.
    So don't believe everything the media tells you, in fact don't believe any of it. I don't even think Trump sleeps at night, he is always working, but that’s what conservatives do.. Trump has been accomplishing more of his promises in one month than most in their entire administration. And whatever he does is for the good of the country! And he would even be accomplishing more if it weren’t for the bunch of hysterical lefty loons who grab onto anything, and everything to harass him..

    Anyone with a working brain would wait to find out exactly what happened before they go off on hysterics . But it seems like the lefty loons are still sore losers and are grabbing anything and everything to keep the leaky lefty boat from sinking.

    I'm more concerned with whoever leaked the info the press. The idiots like Shummer, and Waters, and even that 2 faced John McCain are the prime suspect right now, along with the NY Slimes., and CNN... They hates Trump and wouldn’t put it past any of them.
    Also I think that Crooked Hitlery created the entire "Russia stole the election for Trump" FAKE NEWS because her fragile little ego couldn't handle defeat. Like all left-wing snowflakes with a thirst for power, she felt entitled to the White House. Just about everyone in BOTH parties already said that they don’t believe it, and that there is NO evidence, so what exactly what is there to "investigate". Even some of the most prominent progressives are now waving the white-flag and acknowledging that there is absolutely nothing here but left-wing hyperbole and propaganda. No evidence exists whatsoever!

  22. 1. Obama used tax dollars to try to interfere in our Ally Israel's election. Obama also put his nose into the last French election

    2. Obama successfully helped oust ally Egypt's US-friendly leader and helped the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood take over.

    3. Obama took the US Un-Constitutionally and without authorization to do so to war to help Al Qaeda - who slaughtered 3k Americans on 9/11/01 - take over Libya.

    4. Obama took the US to war, again Un-Constitutionally and without Authorization to do so, in Syria in an attempt to undermine Al-Assad.

    5. Obama and his DHS un-successfully attempted 14 times to hack the states of Georgia's and Indiana's election systems right before the 2016 election...

    So why didn't Barry make any effort to interfere in Iran's latest election to undermine President Rouhani. Perhaps that was one condition Obama agreed to in his Un-Constitutional treaty with Iran or one of the conditions - along with the ransom money - to get US hostages back from Iran.

    And they want to Investigate and Impeach Donald Trump?

  23. That was GREAT FT, I for one am encouraged!

    1. Thank you, DD. I believe the way we choose to THINK ultimately determines the way we truly ARE.

      Which means to me .that we need to cultivate a less captious, less critical more positive, more affirmative attitude. Look for the GOOD in EVERYTHING.

      STARVE the BAD into submission by not acknowledging it.

    There are 22 innocent people are dead because of political correctness and its false belief that everyone just loves everyone else and wants to live in peace and harmony.

  26. Trump has accomplished more than obama and Bush combined.
    He just gave a speech in SA that will be remembered for 1000 years or more.

  27. Now that the Progressive Liberals have effectively dealt with the latest Bull Shit ,i.e. first lady Melania “swatting” Donald’s hand away from hers!
    Can we get back to some Real news? Like Russia, Russia, and Russia!

    I'm just still if anybody here can give me one example of Russians hacking the US elections yet? I've asked this question a dozen times at least. No response. And wasn’t it Barack Obama who said, “AMERICAN ELECTIONS ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO HACK?”

    The Russians may have hacked the DNC, that has been acknowledged, that is a Fact! . What has also been acknowledged it that there is ZERO EVIDENCE the had any impact on the outcome! Although it has been proven that the DNC was responsible for Bernie Sanders being stabbed in his back!

    Also, this is what CNN had to say the last time I checked:
    “No, the 2016 presidential election can't be hacked”-
    My, oh My, How Have the Times Changed... in Only a Few Months.

    It appears that the Democrats believe that Donald Trump’s beating the hell out of Hillary Clinton is considered "Hacking".
    The Sore-losing, crybaby, Democrats have been using the Russian hacking episode as an excuse for why Hillary lost, and they are implying if not saying it outright that it lead to Trump's win, thereby trying to de-legitimize it, and claiming that he is illegitimate! Well wasn’t that to be expected?
    It was a landslide win for Trump whether you think the Russians were involved or not. Where would anyone get off by de-legitimizing the Trump voters? I think the people who voted for Trump were going to do so PERIOD, this business with the Russians hacking the DNC was just a confirmation of the intense dislike there is out there with the Washington establishment. And what exactly do you think the entire issue was? It's called campaigning and free speech.
    It may leave a bad taste in some of our mouths when the Russians or other foreigners become active in our politics, but NOTHING that was done was illegal.
    It is an issue for voters. If a voter doesn't like a candidate or those supporting that candidate then they get to vote.
    As long as people don't break campaign laws, or finance laws, there are no crimes committed.
    Unfortunately, communication via the internet has opened the door for the world to participate .In other words there is NO evidence of the Russian government committing any illegal acts that influenced the election only a load of theories, rumors, and BS stories put out there by the leftist news stations.
    Just baseless allegations that the Left uses themselves as the proof of the allegation. It all stems from the theory that if You Keep Telling a Lie Often Enough, Eventually it Will Be Believed as Truth. The Left ran out of facts on their side a long time ago so bullshit is all they got now.

    As for Comey what ever happened to the Fact that Hillary Clinton took money from people who are Terrorists? And all the evidence about the classified information Is that forgotten and replaced by the Trump-Russian headings? Bottom line is that the Democrats never should have nominated her ... or even Bernie the Socialist either.
    Also where is the outcry that Obama tried to influence other Nation's elections far more than the Russians apparently ever tried?

    And that the Election WASN'T hacked or Influenced . People in all fifty states voted even in Chicago the dead people God bless them and elected electors to the electoral college. And the electoral college selected Trump for President.,
    Have a Great Holiday Week-end.

  28. The Democratic Party and the lamestream media keep pushing the Russian Trump collusion false narrative as the reason for Hillary's loss of 2016 presidential election, they've spun it a hundred different ways. But the real she lost was because enough Americans saw right through her hypocrisy along with her "shill" the leftist media with their one-sided reporting. To name just a few her lies which led to her defeat

  30. Does it matter if No evidence of Trump 'collusion' with Russia was ever found?
    And another thing, who really cares if Trump has had contacts with Russia? Russia is not an enemy country, is it? It would be desirable instead that the relations with Russia could increase. Russia is the only country which has taken seriously the war against terror. The other countries, let alone Saudi Arabia and its akin (the Emirates of the Gulf) are lukewarm and inadequate, specially Italy where the leftists are ruling and where there is the Vatican with a Pope who is dominated by Muslims and Leftists

    And isn’t it weird how invoking the 5th was fine for Lois Lerner, Brian Pagliano, and Hillary Clinton (as far as demwits are concerned). And it was even OK for Eric Holder to refuse to testify to Congress.
    ...BUT Flynn invoking the 5th now supposedly implicates Trump? Double standard much?
    This whole thing is a ruse was designed to inflict political damage on Trump. Nothing more. There's no evidence Trump did or directed someone to commit a crime. Even the allegations do not raise to the level of a crime. Talking with someone or expressing an opinion is not a crime. See what Alan Dershowitz a well know liberal stated these facts perfectly; and he's not a Trump supporter -- not even close! We can all agree or disagree on policies but... Come on people, this is all just political theater! Rational minds need to prevail or the damage that's being done to this country may be irreparable. Don't let your personal dislike of Trump's stance on a given issue blind you to the bigger picture.. Grow up. You liberals have nothing. Nothing but conspiracy theories.
    What about Obama, ? What about Shrillary? What about Susan Rice? What about Donna Brazile? Why are we badgering Donald Trump? Why don't we look where there is actually some concern? I'm so sick of this... Why haven't they named at least one Russian fact, that cost Hillary the election?
    And I will be here to humiliate you when spread you Bull Shit and when you post those dumb, childish Photo shopped Pictures, , you can count on it.
