End of Year


For some reason, I’m finding it very hard to sit down and write a post at this time of year. Usually, I like to take a look back at the year that is almost complete and review the impressions that it has made upon the country. This year, it’s a mixture of highs and lows. Let me explain.

The election and swearing in of Donald Trump as President of the United States was certainly a high point for several reasons. The big one (at least for me) was the rejection of the American People of the corrupt Democratic candidate as well as a thumb in the eye of the establishment politicians. The stock market has taken off as a result, the economy is up, and jobs (for those people looking for them) are becoming available as companies are becoming more optimistic about the future. In general, the country appears to be breathing a sigh of relief that President Trump is working out better than expected. Unless, of course, you’re a Leftist Democrat…

The Democrats are still bitching and moaning about President Trump’s election, and doing their damnedest to smear and otherwise demean the man. I still think that they are sore losers, and the shenanigans that they are pulling are wearing thin. The first of this smearing is the accusation the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to sway the election.

I’m finding it fascinating that in the months since the allegation was made, not one shred of evidence has been uncovered that directly links the campaign with the Russians. Of course, this means (at least to the Democrats) that there is a link that needs to be found and duly investigated. But since that time, several links to the Democratic Party’s campaign have been found (and recently, with the Green Party as well), but we’re supposed to ignore those. But I’m not surprised in some respects…

The recent discovery of links of Special Council Mueller being politically biased against the President along with several of his investigators is troubling at best. Any sane person would expect that Mueller would recuse himself immediately along with his team of investigators. Failing that, Attorney General Sessions should grow a spine, sack Mueller, and replace him with verified neutral & objective investigators. This is the only way to restore any form of credibility to a politically charged investigation.

The next smear is the continued allegation that President Trump is a sexual predator, pointing back to the leaked tape of what was supposed to be a semi-private comment to a reporter that. Now in my mind, there is a huge difference about talking about an act vs. actually committing that act. To the best of my knowledge, there is no credible evidence that President Trump did anything but talk. However…

There has come to light massive amounts of evidence that many Congresscritters and their supporters, mostly Democrat, having assaulted numerous women and covered it up (some with taxpayer hush money). If we want to go back to President Kennedy, his brother Ted, President Clinton, and Hollywood Mogul and Democratic supporter Harvey Weinstein, then the Democrats have absolutely no moral high ground to point fingers. Those incidents have proof, and are documented. I do expect, that these sorts of attacks will continue upon both President Trump and any Republican candidate since Roy Moore was defeated in Alabama during a special election among charges of sexual impropriety from 30+ years ago.

But let’s not worry about any kind of accountability for real crimes…

Why are people like Felonia von Pantsuit and her husband (with multiple accomplices) not being held accountable for the pay-to-play schemes such as the Uranium One scandal, using their foundation as a money-laundering business, real collusion with the Russians, and multiple other felonies such as lying to the FBI, destroying government property, national security violations, & so on? That is what the investigators should be focusing on, not something made up to cast doubt and focus attention elsewhere.

Moving on…

The Republican-controlled Congress failed in their campaign promise of repealing ObamaCare. The best excuse that I can find is that they didn’t expect Trump to win the election, and were caught flat-footed without any legislation ready to go. They certainly didn’t help themselves when proposing a half-assed bill that was sunk by members of their own party. Some of these morons will not be returning to Congress come mid-term elections, and are facing challengers from their own party for their seat. I personally think that they were expecting Felonia von Pantsuit to be elected, and they could position themselves as being the voice of reason against the evil successor to the first Black president, although I have my doubts that they would have a spine or the testicular fortitude to oppose the first woman president…

Now the Republicans are moving forward with a tax-reform bill that has passed the House and Senate, although there appears to be a couple of procedural hiccups as this post is being written. I fully expect the bill to be passed and signed into law by the President. From what I understand from the language that has been analyzed, it’s a mixed bag. Overall, I think it will be good for most Americans. The losers will be in high taxation states such as California and New York. Perhaps those voters need to look at and pay attention to what their state legislators are spending their hard-earned tax money on…

…Such as protection for illegal aliens…

The “cool” thing for cities and states to do to show their independence and disrespect for President Trump & the Federal government is to declare themselves as “sanctuary cities” or in the case of California, a “sanctuary state.” These mayors, governers and other officials are now using taxpayer money to clothe, house, and defend the deportation of people who violated Federal immigration laws (i.e., criminals). These officials tend not to discriminate between hard-core criminals and those just seeking a better life for themselves and their families. In other words, they are favoring criminals over the safety and well being of their citizens.

I can think of no better example of this that the case of Kathryn Steinle who was murdered (in my opinion) in San Francisco (a sanctuary city) by an illegal immigrant with multiple violations (including seven felonies). The immigrant, Garcia Zarate, was arrested and released from custody even though the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement had a detainer issued against him. Zarate late found a gun, discharged it, and the bullet killed Steinle. Zarate was later aquitted of all murder charges (including involuntary manslaughter). In other words, if San Francisco was not a sanctuary city and complied with the Federal detention order, an American citizen would still be alive.

Other examples can be found throughout the country – illegal immigrants with criminal records being released to later commit crimes of theft, DUI, and murder. All sanctioned by elected officials violating their oaths of office and the laws of this country.

Why, in the name of all that is Holy, do we allow our elected officials to protect criminals?

Folks, I could go on and on about the ills of chain immigration policies, DACA, the identity politics practiced by the Democratic Party, and the Left’s claims of being tolerant only to qualified same-thinking people, and so on, but that is more time that I just do not have for this year.

Instead, I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
