As I wrote last week, the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans, and the MSM) has become so obsessed with what they believe is their total power over America they think they are invincible. This is especially true as they display their open hatred for President Trump and his supporters. That is the only explanation for their irrational and un-American behavior. Everybody on the Left loudly insists that they know what is “wrong with America” and they know how to “fix it”.
They are all mired so deep in this mindset that they stubbornly refuse to admit that anything good has happened in America since President Trump was elected. Anytime anyone tries to ask them a question they do not like they ignore the question, denigrate the question, or my favorite, they deflect the question by blaming Trump and his supporters for something else.
The latest example of their puppet like deflection is the steady stream of people on the left being “talking heads” and somehow blaming President Trump and other prominent Republicans for “creating an environment” that caused so much negative focus on Virginia Governor Northam’s 34 year old racist picture, that he now denies was him.
They clearly have a prepared script with specifics allegations against President Trump, Representative Scalise and Representative King to use to deflect any focus on the governor. The Left’s own attacks on the governor are also a deflection. The Left is using the racist claims to deflect attention away from their extreme stance on abortion.
This is now their S.O.P. Deny, deflect, attack and then claim they are the only ones who can, “make America right again”. This is all they can do now because the Trump Administration has accomplished so much in his first two years!
Since President Trump was sworn in we have:
- More Americans working than ever before. The highest labor participation rate we have had in decades.
- Average increased income for working Americans of 3.3% in 2018. Working Americans also got bigger paychecks as a result of the Trump tax cuts.
- America became the number one oil and gas producer in the world while meeting the goals set for it in the Paris Climate Agreement, even after President Trump withdrew us from the agreement. It is interesting to note that some of the other countries that are still part of the agreement did NOT meet their goals!
- In recent trade talks between China and President Trump China committed to purchase a lot of American goods, including a large number of soybeans, and to make Fentanyl be a controlled substance in China! Fentanyl overdoes in America has become a growing epidemic. There were 18,000 Fentanyl overdose deaths in America in 2018. Recently 254 lbs. of illegal Fentanyl were discovered in a load of cucumbers coming into the U.S. from Mexico. Experts say that a small amount no bigger than a few grains of salt can be a deadly overdose, so 254 lbs. would be enough to overdose millions of people.
- GDP in America in 2018 was a record 3.2%. During Obama’s eight years GDP was dramatically below this every year he was in office.
- 304,000 new jobs were created in January, in spite of the shutdown! During President Trump’s two years in office, American businesses have created an average of 250,000 new jobs per month. During Obama’s eight years in office, there were times when you could add up the new jobs created in America for many months and it would not total 250,000. Obama even said that “those jobs are not coming back”.
- There is a power generating plant in the county south of me. It had five towers working before the Obama Administration killed coal production. Four were shut down and one was converted to natural gas. The last one was shut down in 2015. For years there were miles of empty coal rail cars sitting idle, abandoned at the rail yard at the plant. Last Saturday as I passed by the plant I noticed all the rail cars were GONE. The railroad is using them to haul coal again! And there is a major construction project going on at the plant.
If the Left is not successful in destroying the Trump Administration before November 6, 2020, President Trump will be re-elected. The Left will never admit it but they know that is true. That is why they are so obsessed with attacking President Trump and his supporters. I am going to continue to support and bet on President Trump!
Postscript: I have been following politics my whole adult life, closely for over 40 years. During all this time I have never seen such disgusting un-American behavior as I witnessed from the Left before, during and after the 2/05/19 State of The Union address, especially during the address!
