What Matters to 46.4% of Americans

Clinton and Putin
Clinton and Putin; looks like he’s moving in for a wet one!

Last night President Trump visited Bashar al-Assad with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles built right here in the good ‘ol U S of A, and a lot more Americans than Liberals really want to believe wholeheartedly approve of that move.  The Russians and the bleeding heart, nothing-is-worth-war crowd on the American Left… well, not so much.

Tough.  Get over it.  “Elections have consequences” to quote a former U.S. President.

Since the election last November, I’ve tried to take a little time off to let my blood pressure get back to normal, but I feel compelled to address the insane circumstances that have developed recently, especially around the botched attempt to repeal ObamaCare, and this ongoing “Trump-Russia Connection” business.

Then right in the middle of writing this article President Trump obliterates a Syrian airbase in retaliation for their use of chemical weapons on innocent people, and all I got to say is… HELL YA!

ObamaCare: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, host of “The Last Word” program thinks Trump’s administration is over… “OK, it’s time to discuss the legislative leadership and powers of the Presidency, and it is impossible… impossible to exaggerate the enormity of what happened to Donald Trump today (the President’s decision to withdraw from the House vote on the repeal of ObamaCare).  His Presidency effectively ended today.  He will retain the office of course, but not the powers because he demonstrated today that he has none.  He is a powerless President.”  Oh my God Lawrence!  Relax!  Take a breath or two!  We WILL see ObamaCare repealed and replaced, although it now looks as if President Trump intends to let it implode first… probably a wise decision.

The “Trump-Russia Connection”: First both Obama and Clinton make fun of Trump’s suggestion that the Russians might be trying to hack our election process.  Then when Clinton loses, her campaign staff and the entire Left wing spin machine go into overdrive to prove that Trump colluded with the Russians to hack our election process!  Now apparently, according to that narrative, the whole concept seems quite logical and likely to them!  When searching for exactly who might be leaking all of this information the Left has actually suggested that it may be the Trump administration themselves!  This is nothing short of insane!  Now of course it turns out that, in fact, Susan Rice DID use her position as Obama’s National Security Advisor to unmask Trump campaign officials’ names, so she moves into first place as the person most likely to have leaked that information to the media – which is a felony… and the media ignores the story.  It seems quite clear to me that if anybody cut a deal with the Russians it was Hillary Clinton…

Spicer; There’s a Clearer Connection With Russia and Clinton Than There is Trump

Remember when Obama told Trump to ‘stop whining’ about ‘rigged election’?

Hillary’s Russia Connection

Obama-Clinton uranium scandal w/Russia exposed?

The truth is that Trump’s supporters – obviously, myself among them – have lost faith in the media in general so we’re not even listening to all of this back and forth, he-said-she-said, who-knew-what-when BS.  We’ve also lost all faith in the entrenched Republican millionaire aristocracy that is our Congress.  Of course, we’ve already given up on any hope that the Democratic Party will ever acknowledge the results of the 2016 Presidential election, come to the “middle”, and try to work with the Republican Party!

What we are holding out hope for is that President Trump will somehow actually managed to “drain the swamp” that is our Congress and the bureaucracy in Washington DC.  In the meantime, we hope he kicks some long overdue ass around the world to make up for the past eight years and all that bowing and scraping.

I personally also hold out hope that come November of 2018 Americans will once again rise up, and boot out every damn sitting member of Congress and vote in entirely new blood.

Our Politicians – Democrats and Republicans – will say ANYTHING to get re-elected.  That’s called lying.

Our media knowingly misleads the American people.  That’s also called lying.

Our pollsters knowingly manipulate polling questions to skew their presentation of “American opinion.”  Today the Real Clear Politics average (the average of nine Leftist polls) has President Trump’s approval at 40.2%, and his numbers have been slowly dropping since his election.  These same polls were at least a full 10 points off about the elections, so why should I believe their polling now?  Is that “lying?”  Maybe not.  But at the very least it is manipulative.

What I’m trying to say is that the BS coming from out of our politicians (from both parties), our media and from the pollsters no longer matters to at least 45% of America (those who elected Trump) … and I think that percentage is growing.

What we are seeing now is a federal government, a media and a collection of pollsters who are fighting for their very survival against a President who owes nothing to anyone – someone they cannot threaten or manipulate… someone who arrived in the White House totally unexpectedly without having sold his soul to the bureaucracy on his way up.

They’re terrified!

So, here’s list of things that I think just don’t matter to the Conservative American voters who voted for Donald Trump (about 46.4% of Americans according to CNN):

  • DNC and Left-Wing charges that Trump colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 Presidential Election, that GEN Michael Flynn was forced to step down as Trump’s first National Security Advisor, or why.
  • DNC and Left-Wing media allegations that Trump’s Presidency is “effectively over” because he was initially unable to push through Paul Ryan’s botched plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, or that President Trump shouldn’t use Twitter, or that he’s a foul-mouthed womanizer.
  • Literally ANYTHING that the following individuals and categories of people say… and I mean quite literally ANYTHING that they say:
    • Any Democrat… literally ANY Democrat.
    • The media, to include most of what Fox News says (even though they eventually did manage to fire Megyn Kelly), but especially any of the long-standing fake news stories like the Conservative War on Women or how Islam is a “religion of peace”.
    • Senior Republican members of Congress – like Senator McCain – who they see as “sell-outs” and entrenched career politicians who are only out for their own re-election.

Now here’s list of things that don’t matter to Liberal voters and those Independent and Conservative voters (the “Never Trumpers”) who either stayed home, or held their noses and voted for Bernie or Hillary (about 48.5% of America according to CNN):

  • Who committed a felony by leaking the names of American citizens who were incidentally collected on during routine surveillance of Russians in the U.S. Liberals are fixated on this fake news story and are hoping that it will lead to Trump’s impeachment.
  • How good a job Trump is doing already as President… in fact quite literally ANYTHING that Trump does – good or bad. In their minds, it is, and will continue to be, ALL bad, and will probably lead to (dare I say) “the end of the world as we know it.”
  • How badly many on the far Left have been behaving – and apparently will continue to behave – since the end of the 2016 Presidential Election. For the most part Liberals either participate in this insanity, whole-heartedly support it, or are totally unaware of the whole mess because the Left-wing media completely ignores it.
  • What may have happened in Benghazi… or for that matter ANY of the REAL scandals and illegalities of the Obama years.
  • The national debt, and how their hero Barrack Obama managed to double that in just eight years.
  • Anything negative about Hillary Clinton, who in their minds can do no wrong and is, indeed the victim of a “vast Right-wing conspiracy”.

To be sure, not much common ground with any of that.  America is more polarized now than I have seen during my lifetime.

OK, now here’s what DOES matter to that 46.4% of Americans who DID vote for Trump:

  • The repeal of ObamaCare because real Americans can clearly see that their premiums and co-pays have skyrocketed, that they have fewer options, and that fewer doctors will take the insurance they are able to procure… and they don’t much give a damn about the supposed “millions of Americans” who are now insured because of ObamaCare – because those people voted for Clinton, and the DNC and all the “free stuff” they were promised. Only the poor and unemployed give a damn about ObamaCare, and they will vote DNC till their condition changes.  Don’t mean to sound heartless, but that’s the unfortunate truth.
  • Their guns and their Bibles, and they cheer Trump’s initial moves – and promised future moves to protect their Second Amendment rights.
  • Today’s installment of a Conservative Supreme Court Justice in the person of Neil Gorsuch replacing Justice Antonin Scalia – may God rest his soul… and of course, the hope that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, now 84 years of age, will step down soon to be replaced by yet another Conservative member – because Conservatives have finally woken up to the fact that if the Supreme Court becomes majority Liberal then they will forever live in a Liberal America.
  • Unemployment… because if you’re unemployed you KNOW you’re unemployed and take no solace in carefully manipulated Federal unemployment figures and the steady stream of “everything’s fine” BS being spewed by the Liberal media. Unemployment and underemployment are of great concern to Trump supporters.  The chronically poor in Americas Democrat controlled big cities don’t want jobs they just want more government handouts.
  • Small business… because there are 27.9 MILLION small businesses in America and they employ MOST Americans… and those Americans have a pretty good idea of the health of that huge portion of our economy. They see their repressed wages, their fellows who have been laid off to make ends meet, and hear their employers bemoan the repressive mountain of regulations heaped upon them.
  • Seeing the reigning-in or outright elimination of the corrupt and out-of-control IRS and EPA – two of the most hated organizations in America.
  • Seeing an end to Obama’s war on coal and oil that has driven energy costs through the roof, because everyday Americans can see their utility bill with their own eyes and have to write out that ever-growing check to pay that bill every month with their own hands.
  • And a lot of social issues that were so aggressively advanced by Obama and the DNC for the past eight years and have really fired up Conservative America such as:
    • The whole “any gender you feel like today” business, because rational Americans – including a lot of Democrats – understand that there are only two sexes and they do NOT support homosexuality, despite what the media would have us believe.
    • Political correctness, because rational Americans – including a lot of Democrats – can clearly see that political correctness has gotten completely out of control.
    • Sanctuary cities, because rational Americans – including a lot of Democrats – realize that it’s not jobs illegals may “take from unemployed American citizens”, or the validity of the controversial crime statistics… it’s about the unsustainable social welfare debt they represent and our $20 TRILLION national debt!
    • Having to worry about their little girls being flashed by perverts in school bathrooms, because we ALL – Conservative or Democrat – have a little daughter, or a niece or a granddaughter.

I could go on, but I think you get the point.  America is has lived with the Liberal agenda for long enough and we’re tired of it!

The “Great Liberal Lie” worked as long as small town America stayed home and didn’t vote.  Rich Hollywood actors and other elitists ate it all up, and Leftist media outlets told America how great things were going.  But that finally changed in 2016 when small town America finally woke up, headed for the polls, and voted for change.

Thank God and our Founding Fathers for the good sense to create the Electoral College!

The real question – and the unknown that absolutely terrifies the DNC – is how many of that 48.5% of Americans that did NOT vote for Trump in 2016 will come to understand the scam that has been perpetrated on them by the DNC and the elitist, Leftist, Socialist media… and will vote for Trump in 2020.

This is why the Leftist media will NEVER tell the story of anything Trump does right over the next four years, and will do everything they can to keep the focus on fake news like this whole Trump-Russia “connection”, even as Susan Rice floats to the top of the cesspool that is the Washington DC swamp.

Americans living in small town American and working for small businesses across the country heard the lies espoused by the Obama administration and parroted by DNC talking heads on the Liberal media outlets for years… and didn’t believe any of that because they were living through REAL life in America and suffering.

Leading up to the election in 2016 they read the falsified polling and heard the reports of how Clinton was a shoe-in for the White House.  In November of 2016 they expressed their dissatisfaction and elected Trump against all odds.

What is truly astounding to me is that the politically savvy members of the DNC have considered all of these things and have concluded that their path back to power is to double-down on extreme, elitist, Leftist Socialism.

I think that finally the American people are waking up.  They see that they have been lied to.  They know that our elitist class of career politicians are still lying to them.  They know that the elitist Socialist media and pollsters are still lying to them.  They love Trump and what he promises to do… at least methinks enough to re-elect him in 2020.

I think the DNC is making a critical strategic mistake.  In November of 2018 – the off-cycle election – we’ll have the first indication of whether or not I am right.

In a related story, as the world watched in horror as new reports of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people – innocent women and children – and as President Trump responds with the proper, timely and appropriate use of American military force, the Conservative website blog American Thinker recalls Susan Rice’s words of only a few days prior writing…

“The chemical weapon attack by the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad on the rebel-held town Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib Province on April 4 once again underscores what a foreign policy failure President Obama was and what a serial liar Susan Rice is.

On January 16, 2017, Rice, who served as U.N. ambassador during Obama’s first term and was rewarded for her Benghazi lies with the post of National Security Advisor, where she could be compelled to testify before Congress, gave what amounted to an exit interview with NPR. During the interview, she crowed about the Obama administration’s success in eliminating the threat of Syrian chemical weapons:

‘We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the (UN) Security Council. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.’

Tell that, Ms. Rice, to the children of Khan Sheikoun who succumbed to the horrible effects of the sarin gas dropped on them by Syrian forces with the support of their Russian allies. You and your boss colluded with the Russians to keep Assad in power and give Russia a free hand in Syria. Your claim of having removed the threat of Syrian chemical weapons was a lie.”

Excerpt from Daniel John Sobieski’s April 6th article “Susan Rice Lied about Syrian Chemical Weapons”.

Obama lied continuously to the American people for eight years.  Susan Rice lied – and like a good little Obama soldier – will continue to lie.  The Democrat politicians in Washington will also continue to lie, and the corrupt Leftist elitist media spin machine and their crony Leftist pollsters will support all of that with their own lies.  Of course, Hillary Clinton lied – about a great many things.  Even the “Never Trumpers” in President Trump’s own party lie to America.

The question many Americans are asking themselves today is this – where’s the truth?

One thing we DO know is that the truth cannot be found among the elitist millionaire aristocracy entrenched in Washington DC, or on cable news, or in the polls we are spoon-fed on a daily basis.
