Trump, the Lunch Pail Billionaire, has Driven the Left Mad

It was August 1, 1988. Remember the date? Maybe not, unless you’re a common sense, right thinking conservative. It was the first day of Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio talk show. And it was the beginning of the new conservative movement. One that the everyman, like you and me, could be part of.

The show took off like a rocket. No one had ever heard such things, particularly from the boring, deadpan, AM dial.

And why did it become an instant an enduring success? First was the shock factor. People, me included, couldn’t believe what we were hearing. “Can you believe what that Limbaugh guy said on the radio,” was a common refrain.

And second, and more importantly, Rush gave voice to what we were thinking. It’s just that simple. Finally there was a guy in the media who actually thought like us – believed what we did, and was not shy about expressing it. In a sea of liberalism from the left and measured politispeak from the right, Limbaugh was breath of fresh air. read more

Another Trump Derangement Mishap by the Left

I know it’s not charitable, but there’s a certain amount of satisfaction obtained by seeing radical leftists in the main stream media twist in the wind as they scramble about trying to cover up yet another Trump Derangement mishap. Their hatred of Trump is so blinding that they’ve completely abandoned any fact-checking in order to advance the anti-Trump train down the tracks. Thankfully for us, the more they jump the gun, the more the voting public sees what disingenuous liars they are, and how they really are just the media arm of the democrat party.

Ivanka Unfairly Attacked by Leftists

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let me state at the outset. I’m not a fan of Ivanka Trump. At least not politically. She certainly appears to be a good person, a good wife and a wonderful and caring mother.

Her political/social views are another thing all together. Ivanka is no conservative. She is liberal on immigration and climate change. She is for paid family leave, special rights for the LGBTQ – Ei-Ei-O crowd, and supports universal pre-k. That’s just some of her stances, but it’s enough for me to take a pass.

However, I find myself coming to her defense as she is once again personally attacked by the vile hellions of the left.

And what was her crime this time? Well, she had the nerve to post an Instagram photo of her lovingly holding her youngest son Theodore. Oh the horror. But how could such a sweet and simple photo trigger the left?

That’s easy. Her last name is Trump. That and the left had such high hopes that the more liberal Ivanka and her husband Jared would be able to influence the president when it came to policy issues. They’ve been demonstrably disappointed.

So they’ve taken to attacking her personally for her father’s political positions. read more

The Left Is Becoming More Desperate

from the American Thinker:

Progressives on the Brink

The Trump era has exposed the dark, vindictive, and oppressive side of liberalism, but that side has always existed.  “Progressives,” as they prefer to be known, have a long history of extremism going back to Woodrow Wilson’s Sedition Act of 1918 and FDR’s many power-grabbing activities, including the 1937 attempt to pack the Supreme Court.  Progressive thinking, because it attempts to impose an extreme vision of society on a public that resists its measures, is by its very nature authoritarian, antidemocratic, and elitist.  Liberalism is not the “party of the people,” as it has long claimed to be: it is, rather, a despotic philosophy that because of its intention of imposing “advanced” thinking on the masses can govern only through deceit and force.

Despite the Naysaying, States Benefit from Trump Tax Cuts

from IBD:

States Get A Windfall From GOP Tax Cuts, But Will They Return The Money To Taxpayers?

When Republicans were putting together their tax reform plan last year, a chorus of critics warned that it would devastate state budgets. Like so many other claims, this turned out to be false.

The New York Times reported in November, for example, that “state and local officials in high-tax states like New York, New Jersey and California are warning the tax plan will strain state budgets.”

A “news analysis” in the Washington Post said the tax law would make “it harder for states and cities to pay their bills.” read more

Podcast – Increasing Racial Tensions and Nancy Pelosi’s Gift

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Racial tensions in America seem to be getting worse over the years – not better. And we’re struggling for a reason as to why it is.

And no where does it appear more prevalent than the recent rash of traffic stops by white police officers and persons of color.

Many believe that the reason is simply race-baiting, but I beg to differ. Instead I believe the problem is similar to that of the Palestinians, who have grown up being taught and brainwashed to hate and fear the Jews.

I also discuss Nancy Pelosi – the gift to Republicans that keeps on giving. Her insanity and Trump derangement syndrome has reached what may be a pinnacle as she comes to the defense of the evil street gang – MS-13. read more

Iran Doing Everything it can to Keep the Cash Rolling In

from The Washington Free Beacon:

Iran in Panic Mode, Scrambles to Save Nuclear Deal

The Iranian ruling regime is racing to save the landmark nuclear deal after President Donald Trump bucked European powers and walked away from the agreement with a vow to reimpose a package of harsh sanctions on the Islamic Republic, according to U.S. officials and regional experts who say the hardline regime is scared about losing the sweetheart deal.

Leading Iranian officials have been locked in tense meetings with European countries and former U.S. officials to ensure they continue to uphold the deal and keep doing business with the Islamic Republic.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, one of the country’s lead negotiators, held a series of meetings with European Union countries on Tuesday to plead with them about saving the deal and ensuring Tehran remains open for business as the United States tees up a package of sanctions that could cripple Iran’s already ailing economy. read more

Stop Calling them Palestinian Protests

Yesterday, The New York posted published an article chronicling the clash between Palestinians and Israeli troops on the Gaza border.

They write that, “At least 52 Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops Monday, casting a pall on the inauguration of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem – and marking the deadliest violence since the 2014 Gaza cross-border war,” officials said.

Obviously, these “clashes” were the result of the Trump administration’s decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Well, that’s not really accurate, now is it. The U.S. embassy in Israel is the only American embassy not located in a nations’ capital city. Trump is merely setting things right. Yet we’re not supposed to question the oddity of this. read more

Dems Give no Credit to Trump for Tax Cuts

from IBD:

Tax Revenues Jump 13% To Record High In April — When Will Dems Admit They Were Wrong About Trump’s Tax Cuts?

The federal government collected far more taxes this April than it did a year ago, despite the “budget busting” Trump tax cuts. So, we’ll ask again: Are the tax cuts paying for themselves?

According to the latest monthly report from the Congressional Budget Office, revenues in April totaled $515 billion — a 13% increase over last April and an all-time high for the month. read more

Trump Declares Dead, the One-Sided, Unsigned, Un-Agreed-Upon, Non-Agreement

On Tuesday night, Mark Levin was speaking of the Iran Nuclear deal that was just sent to the scrap heap by president Trump. To this Levin said it was a great decision. And he added that it was also a Statesmen’s decision with an accompanying Statesmen-like speech to the American people. I agree.

However, as Mark continued, he said something I disagree with and which I thing is quite important – ultimately the most important thing to be gleaned from this whole Obama/Kerry foreign policy scam.

That is that this deal wasn’t and isn’t foreign policy. It’s not a deal, an agreement, a treaty or anything else. It was merely a wish list laid out by Obama and his anti-colonialist, anti-Semitic brothers and sisters – no different than ones crafted for Santa Claus.

But then Mark went on to say that, “Barack Obama cut a deal with this rogue regime. John Kerry negotiated it.” Unfortunately this is not accurate. I know that Mark knows this and was merely making a point, but many less erudite do not – which is why I think it important to boil this Iran “agreement” down to its essence.

The essence of the agreement between the United States and Iran is as real as are unicorns. There is no essence because there is no deal. Never was one. read more
