I repeatedly asked myself this question over the last few months as I watched the Left (Democrats, RINO Republicans, and MSM) publicly and loudly display their anti-American agenda. Every time I log into the internet or turn on the TV I see or hear someone on the Left ranting about how bad things are in America and insisting that their way is the only way to fix everything that is wrong in America. (Definition of rant: speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way). As the volume and intensity of the rants increased over the last few months I increasingly asked myself several questions:
- Does the Left really believe what they are saying is true?
- Does the Left really believe that the majority of the people in America are so uninformed, naive or self-centered that they believe that the Left’s rants are true?
- And even more importantly, what is happening in America now that is so bad? As I look past the rants and the fake news I see more good things happening in America, and the world than I have seen for many years!
Here are a few examples of the most recent rants:
- After being sworn in on her first day in Washington new Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib spoke at a rally organized by MoveOn,org. While speaking she repeated a conversation she had with her young son after winning her congressional race in November. She said that she told her son that she was going to Washington to “impeach the mother f…..”! This was a conversation she had with her young son and she repeated it while speaking into a microphone at a public rally in front of cameras. And the crowd roared in approval! After publicly refusing to apologize she posted a picture of herself on social media with the Palestine flag!
- Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the 29-year-old new Congresswoman from NY has been in front of every TV camera and microphone that she can find ranting about her plans to dramatically raise taxes in America to help pay for her totally socialist agenda. Her agenda includes free health care and college tuition for everyone. She also wants to eliminate the use of fossil fuels in America. She has become so popular with the Left that the MSM has given her a special pet name, “AOC”.
- When he was sworn into his 3rd term as NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo gave an impassioned speech about everything his administration plans to do in his new term in office. In the speech he took a direct shot at President Trump and his supporters when he said, “we are going to build infrastructure, not walls” and that everyone was “welcome in America”
- Tom Steyer, a Silicon Valley billionaire is continuing his 100-million-dollar TV advertising campaign demanding that President Trump is removed from office now, not voted out in 2020. He just announced that he is going on a fact-finding trip to Iowa indicating that he is considering running for president in 2020. At last count that brings the official number of people who are “considering running as a Democrat in 2020 to somewhere around 40, and they all have one thing in common. That is an obsessive hatred for President Trump and his supporters.
- On his first official day back in Washington Al Green from Texas co-authored a new bill to impeach President Trump.
- Congressman Nadler from NY, the new chairperson of the House Judiciary committee, held a press conference before Presidents Trump’s oval office address. During the press conference, he ranted about Trump being such a liar that there should be a banner running across the screen while Trump was speaking warning everyone who watched that everything Trump was saying was a lie. He joined the MSM’s demand that President Trump’s planned speech be released prior to it being broadcast so it could be “vetted by the media prior to it being broadcast”.
- The Left demanded that they be given equal time immediately after the oval office address so they could rebut Trump’s lies. The MSM quickly agreed and scheduled time for Pelosi and Schumer to speak live. In the speech they demanded that President Trump agree to reopen the government now without anything in the budget for border security, ”then we can talk about border security”. This is the new Democratic talking point intended to take the focus off their role in the shutdown.
- NY mayor De Blasio held a press conference where he announced his plans to offer free Medicare for anyone in New York city that needed it.
- When he was sworn in as the next governor of California Gavin Newsom announced that California was going to, “offer sanctuary for everyone”. He has been involved in politics in California his entire adult life. He is also Nancy Pelosi’s nephew.
- It is interesting to note that many of the people on the Left who are the most outspoken against any form of a physical “barrier” at the border live in private gated communities or condos with armed security controlling access to the property. A perfect example of this is Maxine Waters who lives in a multi-million dollar home in a private gated community that is not in her district. With the unemployment rate in her district at 22% it seems to me that is what she should be focusing on rather than open borders?
As noted above this is just a small sample of the Left’s recent rants about “everything Trump”. While all this is happening I have not seen or heard a single person on the Left acknowledge that there is anything good happening in America? The GOOD list is also very long, but just two things at the top of the list are all we need to see to prove that President Trump’s actions and policies are “Making America Great Again”. The two things are:
- The Labor Participation Rate in America now is the best it has been for decades.
- Annual income in America is up 3.2%, which is higher than our current inflation rate.
These two things together are undeniable proof that a larger percentage of our population is working in America now than has been for decades, and they are making more money.
In addition to these two key economic indicators, there is something else that proves President Trump’s policies and actions are “Making America Great Again”. America is now the world’s largest oil and gas producer! And what really makes this special is that while accomplishing this America met the goals set for it in the Paris Climate Accord!
While all these good things are happening in America the Trump Administration also got new (much more favorable trade agreements) with Mexico and Canada. And China is at the trade agreement negotiating table NOW, and all indications are that is going in our favor too! The new trade agreement with China will be part of the new trade agreements we will have in place of the disastrous planned TPP agreement that the Obama Administration had negotiated with that part of the world. Note: Regarding the Obama proposed TPP agreement I used the word “negotiating” very loosely.
As I sit here and look at the two extremely different world views I have described it is obvious to me that the Left has dramatically increased its “everything anti-Trump” rants. The more President Trump accomplishes, the more frantic the Left becomes in its efforts to destroy his Presidency! This is happening because the Left knows that every campaign promise that President Trump fulfills reduces their “POWER” and consequently reduces their ability to destroy our Constitution and make America be part of their dream of a “One World Order”.
This week I read Laura Ingraham’s book, “Billionaire at the Barricades” subtitled, “The Populist Revolution From Reagan to Trump”. It is a long and fascinating book that details the history of the Republican party and American politics from Reagan to Trump. She is an excellent writer, commentator and has a remarkable resume. In one of the last chapters, there is one sentence that “jumped off my iPad” as I read it. It was, “The Left hates Trump and Republicans”. I am sure that in this case, she was referring to real Republicans, not RINO Republicans. She is so right! I firmly believe that we are at a point in America where the Left has decided that the Trump Presidency cannot be allowed to survive! But, as I wrote last week, I am confident that President Trump will out-work and outlast all of his attackers and “Make America Great Again”!
