This is obviously not a complete list of America’s current problems but it is indicative of the depth of problems America is facing after eight years of Democratic control of the White House:
The absolute destruction of the American healthcare system, to the point it may be unsalvageable. The new Democratic proposal to fix it is to replace it with a “single payer” healthcare system. If you want to know how a “single payer” healthcare system works take a look our VA healthcare system and the recent baby Gard case in England. Instituting a “single payer” healthcare system would require a huge expansion of our Federal Government bureaucracy, which would create another massive “transfer of power” to the “Washington Cesspool”.
The final transition of the Democratic Party to an anti-American Socialist party being led by self-centered ego maniacs who refuse to acknowledge what happened to their party in recent elections (they now have less Democrats in elected state and national positions than they have had in almost 100 years). And they continue to obsess with overturning the November 2016 election and putting Hillary and Kaine in the White House!
A totally corrupt, anti-American and dysfunctional Democratic National Committee.
The final death throes of American media that actually reported news. We now have a Main Stream Media (MSM) that loudly obsesses with “fake news” based on un-named sources or obviously fabricated lies. These are recent examples of what we get from the MSM:
- A widely circulated article that claimed General Kelly called Comey and threatened to resign his position as head of Homeland Security because of Comey’s firing. If you look at any of General Kelly’s long career you will see that he would NEVER take any action like this. This “article” was allegedly based on two un-named sources.
- CNN host Fareed Zakaria did an on camera analysis of the 2016 Presidential election that can only be described as arrogant and elitist. He actually said that Trump was elected by angry, white, blue collar men who were opposed to the growing influence of women and people of color in American politics!
- A report that Donald Jr’s written description of his meeting with the Russians last year was dictated by President Trump, while he was on Air Force One returning from one of his international trips, and was fabricated to take attention off of the“ Russian Investigations”. This report was allegedly based on a leak from inside Air Force One.
- Maxine Waters’ endless media exposure to demand that President Trump be impeached.
- Barbara Lee gets national media coverage of her claim that, “Trump is militarizing the White House with his appointment of General Kelly as White House Chief of Staff and this is putting America at rik”
International threats to America are at the highest point in American history:
- More countries are becoming nuclear powers and some are openly threatening to attack America. The most notable are Iran and North Korea.
- Putin is openly obsessed with restoring the Soviet Union and becoming the most powerful and influential head of state in the world, by any means necessary.
- The entire Middle East continues to become more unstable with no reasonable solution to improve the situation.
- Venezuela is descending into total chaos and many Central and South American countries appear to be poised to have their own internal problems due to government corruption and growing gang and drug cartel violence. This will cause total chaos on our southern border.
Several states and many major cities in America are openly defying the rule of law regarding illegal immigrants in exchange for votes and cheap labor.
The US legal immigration system is an engine for graft (dirty money) and corruption.
Various Federal judges are openly defying the rule of law in America and “legislating from the bench”.
We have what can only be described as an unsolvable US debt crisis.
The biggest expansion of entitlement programs in US history.
A dramatic increase in the number of children growing up in broken homes in America.
A dramatic increase in the number of people in America who are unemployable.
A population that is so fragmented that practically no level of Government can function properly.
A dramatic increase in the number of young people in America who feel “entitled” and have no respect for authority.
Opioid addiction crisis in many states.
A dramatic increase in violent gangs in America, including MS13.
A Washington bureaucracy that prefers to destroy America rather than have the “Cesspool” they live in drained!
“Washington Cesspool” – Democrats, RINO Republicans, self-appointed members of the “Washington Elite”, Washington career bureaucrats, Federal Government employees, Lobbyist.
17 US intelligence agencies that are increasingly self-serving rather than putting America’s best interest first. Obama made this dramatically worse during his final months in office by unilaterally changing various government rules relating to agency sharing of information (unmasking of Americans).
A Pentagon immigrant recruitment program that had to be suspended when it became obvious that it had been “infiltrated” with immigrants that had been poorly vetted and did not meet the program’s requirements. Some of the immigrants working in the program have “disappeared” (are unaccounted for and are assumed to be somewhere in America).
An overall level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and in many cases treason in every Obama Administration agency and department. This level of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, and treason never existed in any previous President’s Administration. This was especially true in the IRS, FEC, BATF and DOJ. Some examples of this are Benghazi, ”Fast and Furious”, “Operation Choke Point”, the illegal withholding, destruction of and altering of subpoenaed records, contempt of Congress, an endless stream of new Government regulations issued by bureaucrats and Presidential executive orders without Congressional input…… And many “Obama holdovers” are still in their government positions today doing everything they can to bring down the Trump Presidency!
