It’s a new thing. Easy as pie. You don’t need facts. You don’t even need truthful information. If you have a drop of dark skin in your blood-line (even 1/1,024 or ten generations removed), yelling “racism” every time someone criticizes you⏤is a discussion-stopper. Boom! You’re a racist! You’re done! Stop talking!

Sorry, liberals and socialists, it doesn’t work that way. And you will NOT shut me up. I’m tired of your antics and your “holier than thou” attitudes that you think give you the right to brand me as a “racist” just to give yourself the platform. Your platform is rotten to the core and I will not accept your arrogant accusations as a legitimate assault on the America I love.

So here we are. The Mueller debacle is over. After two years and some $34 million down the tubes, there was never any evidence of anything for which to indict or even accuse our President. And it turns out that Mueller and his team of “investigators” were frauds from the outset. They never intended to carry out a fair investigation. They ruined the lives of good men, whose only real and relevant crime was supporting the President. And they ignored the obvious, provable crimes of Democrats (how do you spell Hillary Clinton?), because the panel’s only agenda was to destroy President Donald Trump.

Now the left is seething with hatred because this “witch hunt” (and that is exactly what it was), couldn’t find anything to pin on the President. He wasn’t guilty of anything. So, instead of moving on and getting down to the business of Congress, which they have largely ignored since January 2017, their colleagues in arms have already marshaled resources to take the fight to a new level. When do you get to “enough is enough” and move on? It seems the answer to that is “Never”.

The Democrats are so consumed with the delusion of their own wonderfulness and so overwhelmed by the debilitating Trump dystopia from which they suffer and which has virtually disabled them, that they have nothing left on their plates but hate.

But if they still think they can beat down the President with their endless and brutal barrage of harassments and accusations, they are likely in for another big disappointment.

There is a story that Abraham Lincoln was once asked to fire General Ulysses S. Grant during the American Civil War. Grant, who is known for contributing more to the defeat of the Confederacy than any other general, was also known as the “Butcher”, because so many men died under his command. But, according to the story, President Lincoln refused to fire him, saying “I must have Grant – he fights!”

Well, today we are talking about a different kind of war. Pathetic, pompous Democrats like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, who are so obsessed with destroying the President that they insist on continuing the fight they have already lost, are in for a rude awakening. Because their adversary is a President who was duly elected in November 2016 by a margin of 77 Electoral College votes . . . and, as Lincoln said,  “He fights!” 

A growing number of Americans appreciate the promises Donald Trump made and kept during his first two years in office, and the 5 million jobs his policies created in his first two years. The tens of thousands of Americans, who stand in line for endless hours to attend one of his rallies in cities around the country, represent the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for him in 2016 and are a part of a growing wave of supporters who are highly motivated to come to the polling stations and vote for Trump in 2020.

Weaponizing Hate

Even while the Democrats accuse the Republicans and Conservatives of “racism” and “hate speech”, the reality is that these highly charged words are their own coin of the realm and they’ve been spending it freely for years. 

Congressman Elijah Cummings called the President a “racist” for his comments about the horrible conditions in Cummings’ own district. But he lied. 

The President’s remarks weren’t racist. They weren’t about race, they were about the rats and garbage in which the little children in Cummings’ district are forced to live and play. Because in the twenty years that he as been their Congressman, Cummings has done nothing to address the deteriorating conditions in their own neighborhoods that are infested with rats, and whose alleys are littered with used hypodermic needles and filled with rotting garbage. This is where the constituents of his largely black community live and where their children play.

Don’t believe me? In 2018, the city’s former mayor. Democrat Catherine Pugh, was filmed as she took a tour of the neighborhoods in the district. Here’s what she said:  What the hell? We should just take all this sh*t down. … Whoa, you can smell the rats. … Whew, Jesus. … Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.”

This is not a new story. In 2015, when Bernie Sanders was running for President, he described Baltimore as a “Third World country”, and compared the city’s poorest neighborhoods to North Korea. Nobody called him a “racist”. He got a pass. It was only when Donald Trump said essentially the same thing, that he was bombarded with accusations of “racism”.

But the Democrats lied. Trump’s comments weren’t racist, they were accurate. And they weren’t about race. They were about squalor. They were about the deplorable conditions in the district that Cummings has represented for two decades. When Trump called the district “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess”, he was simply stating facts, supported by the people who live there. 

And when CNN’s Victor Blackwell also claimed on-air that the president was referring to black and brown people when he touched on Baltimore’s rat “infestation,” he was also lying. The President wasn’t blaming the victims of Cummings’ neglect. He was referring to the real rats that have taken over the district.

Did you know that last year, Baltimore was rated one of the “Rattiest Cities” in the country by Orkin pest control company? And not for the first time!

And it’s not only about the rats. In that same year, the Baltimore Sun quoted a new report by the FBI that “Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall”.

I’m tired of hearing Cummings called a “hero” by his pals. He’s no hero. He’s a corrupt, selfish, egotistical politician who uses his position to feather his own nest and support his growing power. His campaign website says, “Elijah is passionate about the work he does to ease the pain and challenges that Maryland families face.” Really? 

Then why is it that the condition of the illegal aliens on our southern border is so much more important to Cummings than his own constituents, who by electing him year after year are keeping him in his custom tailored suits, but are themselves living in squalor among the rats and the garbage? Why do they matter so little to him? And why has he done so little to help them during the 20 years that he has represented them in Congress? 

One might ask, why do they keep electing him? My guess is that over the years, he has built a powerful political machine that keeps him in office. Maybe it’s time for a change.

Is Trump a racist?

Last night I spoke to a friend in California. She wanted to know how it was that someone such as myself could possibly align myself with a white supremacist (meaning the President). I was stunned! How do you continue a conversation that begins that way?

Is the President a “white supremacist”? Is he a “racist”? Of course not! Fox’s Greg Gutfeld put it nicely, when he said, “Trump’s about to execute a white supremacist, while trying to free a black rapper from jail, as he pushes prison reform that directly benefits families of black men, while calling out a city where minorities are victims of crime & blight. If Trump’s a racist, he sucks at it!”

So who is responsible for the Hate?

The growing divide in this country should be a serious concern to all of us. This was demonstrated very clearly the other morning on the Morning Joe show with Joe Scarborough, and guest Karine Jean-Pierre, who is the chief public affairs officer for MoveOn.org. She wasted no time getting to the point. “I don’t know where Donald Trump wants to take this, but wherever it is, it’s going to be dangerous,” she said. “It could lead to some sort of horrible civil war. . . . . He’s shredding the Constitution. And so, Republicans, the leadership in the Republican Party, need to stand up. You have to speak up. Because if you don’t, you are encouraging this. You are picking Donald Trump, loyalty to Donald Trump, instead of to the country.”

In other words, according to the hysterical analysis of Jean-Pierre (and most Democrats, it seems), it is the President’s rhetoric that is dividing the country and will destroy America!

But here is an interesting observation:  Whatever the President tweets, it is almost always reactive to what some Democrat has said or done. And if his rhetoric has angers them, it is their unmitigated fury (that goes back to he election in November 2016, when they refused to accept the results) that has done more to divide this country than anything the President has said or done. It is the vendetta that the Democrats have created and nurtured against our duly elected President that is destroying the nation. And the Democrat leadership refuses to stand down.

It looks as though there is little hope for a reversal anytime soon. Such a move would have to come from the party leadership of both parties and there are no signs that any such move is being considered.

As Charles Dickens wrote, “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.” Our economy is strong and optimism is high, but our leaders are behaving like children, squabbling, blaming each other for slights real or imagined. It’s time for them all to grow up and take care of the country. Too much to hope for? Probably. But hope springs eternal and the elections are only a little more than fifteen months away.
