Politically Speaking – February 14, 2017
I watched Meet the Press Sunday morning as usual and was disenchanted with Chuck Todd as usual.
This week Bernie Sanders called President Donald Trump a pathological liar, among other things. Whether or not I like Senator Sanders is a moot point. To show that kind of disrespect is something I personally can’t excuse. Had someone called Barack Obama the same, I would have felt no different!
However, what really set me back was Senator Sanders said next — which was of great concern to me — that there would be spontaneous protests across the country on February 25, including in conservative areas. If it’s spontaneous, how the hell would he know?
Is this what you call trying to bring a divided country together? Senator Sanders, on more than one occasion, has said his goal is to pull together. That’s not going to happen the way he and others are behaving!
But in my opinion, there’s another purpose for this total disregard of respect from the Senator and others like him. Taking a close look, I believe there is a movement surrounding the Senator and those like him, and their goal is to add fuel to the fire, alongside the liberal media, and the Washington Democratic Party, to discredit Donald Trump every day of his Presidency.
Why? It’s quite simple. 2018 elections are just around the corner, and don’t think for a minute they haven’t concerned themselves with even more eventual losses. But as long as the leaders of the Democratic Party are people like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, and of course Pocahontas (Elizabeth Warren). In other words, the old guard. The Party will continue to lose until it doesn’t exist. I would strongly recommend they began to look for new candidates that care about the American people instead of trying to stay in control just to be in control.
But stepping back, to prove my point, I watched some interviews during one of the recent protests with college students. I found it disturbing that the majority of these young adults didn’t have a clue why they were there and couldn’t even name the seven countries the president had tried to ban or didn’t know why. What the hell are these young people learning? But what I found even more disturbing is when the students informed their professors that they were skipping class, these classroom rocket scientists encouraged the actions. Now if that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what to say. This is all part of the grand plan.
We have six grandchildren. Four are old enough to vote, and each did. I don’t know how they voted, I didn’t ask. That’s their business. But what I can say is that each has common sense, and if they protested something, they would know why! And that’s not because of me or their grandfather, but because they have always had parental involvement. They went to college to learn, and not to find a safety room. They don’t need safety pins. Thank goodness.
Now the fact remains, protests take money. I ask you to wonder who’s behind these spontaneous protests? Could it be George Soros?
Leaving you with this thought this week: I was raised by a staunch Democrat, my father. I was a registered Democrat for most of my adult life. What am I today? I would say an Independent, because frankly, I’m not that impressed with the Republican Party either!
And as we look ahead to 2018, all parties should realize that President Trump wasn’t elected by the Republican Party alone, but by many of today’s Independent voters (the fastest growing voting block in the nation). Many of these people are former Republican and Democrat voters who have grown tired of the gridlock of Washington and the chess game our Congress is playing with our country, because of their self interests and reelection efforts, rather than the interest of working together to improve our great nation.
Until next week.
