Interesting take. It could explain a lot about today’s sudden “woke” corporatism.
The only question is: did Michelle Obama ask her to do it, or was it implied?
After President Trump’s less than stellar press conference performance with Putin Monday, the far-left and Never Trump (media, pols, populace) has predictably thrown a temper tantrum over it. Was it wise to publicly suck-up to Putin? Not in my opinion. However, the normal over-the-top rhetoric from the far-left wackos now borders on silly. “Treason, impeachment, high crimes and misdemeanors!” are just a few of the words being thrown around by the unhinged Trump-hating cabal. Let us remind these people what occurred on Obama’s watch:
The “reset” button. “I will have more ‘flexibility’ once I am re-elected. “The cold war wants its’ foreign policy back.” The Syrian “red-line”. Threats on Russian incursions into Crimea and the Ukraine not followed through on. Ect, ect.
Exit question: if you replace Trump with Obama last Monday, how much do you want to bet that these same haters of all things Trump would be lauding “a new diplomacy” or some stupidity.
I count nine or even ten major ones, if his administration in fact spied on the Trump campaign.
Cultural rot and misguided Obama policies are largely to blame, not “guns”. Under Obama, the Department of Education stupidly passed rules making it nearly impossible to punish or expel troubled, often violent students, under the guise that it was unfair or “racist” to do so. Unbelievable. What did Oblunder and his odious Education Secretary Arne Duncan think would happen? Hopefully Trump will rescind this idiotic rules. Ironically, some of these same leftists are now proposing that public school students now “walk-out” or no longer show up for school until action is taken on gun-control. I applaud this totally – it will help private schools and home-schooling even more.
Remember when Obama and his leftist minions argued that something called “smart power”; that is, their brilliant intellect and soaring rhetoric; would strengthen America’s position in the world and disarm our adversaries? Well, here is what it got us:
An expansionary Russia.
ISIS, now thankfully seemingly on the run
An empowered Iran, now with a path to the bomb
A nuclear North Korea with growing missile capabilities
In summation, a total disaster. And Trump has to clean it up. Thank you, American left and the Democrat party.
“Transformation”. One estimate is that Federal regulations new cost the country $1.9T in compliance and lost productivity. That is $5919 for every person in the country. Getting your money’s worth?
President Trump has certainly not helped himself with his tweets, contradicting statements and shoot-from-the-hip approach (firing Comey?). However, the attacks on him from the far-left, the left-wing media and even some Republicans is so over-the-top it defies description. Treasonous comes close to describing their behavior, not his. Cutting through the crap, here are some facts.
Suggesting to former FBI director Comey that he would like General Flynn to not be investigated or prosecuted further doesn’t come close to obstruction of justice. If it did, Comey was obligated BY LAW to immediately contact the Justice Department that a possible violation had taken place. If he did not (as is apparent) Comey himself is guilty of a felony. Furthermore, by dismissing Comey, Trump is not guilty of obstruction even if it was over the Russian investigation, as the director does not head up an investigation and it will continue. Calls for impeachment on this basis are stupid, dishonest or both. And oh, by the way, what did Obama do when he publicly proclaimed Hillary Clinton’s innocence before the FBI or Justice weighed in?
Next, regarding Trump sharing intelligence with Russia, that is his right to do even if it is misguided. And oh, it is something Obama did repeatedly. And now we are getting a special prosecutor to look into the Russian ties, so our side caved. Maybe it’s a good thing for transparency sake but it is unnecessary and unprecedented. In eight years of non-stop Obama corruption not one was appointed during that time. Not for fast and furious, DOJ spying, the IRS disgrace, Benghazi or Hillary Clinton.
The real scandal here is the corruption of the media and within the government bureaucracy. Crimes are being committed daily by anti-Trump bureaucrats, and they need to be rooted out and prosecuted. All the sources for these stories are unnamed leakers. If this had happened to Obama the media would be have a hissyfit and calling it all “racist!” The deep state bureaucracy of government agencies appears to be attempting to take down a duly elected president in some kind of illegal coup. The left plays very dirty, and it is way past time for Trump, his supporters, and those on the right who are infuriated by these illegal, undemocratic and unconstitutional actions to fight back just as hard. The GOP controls every branch of the government but it appears that the Democrats are running things…it is an outrage! Comey has notes on Trump? Supoena all his notes, especially those on Obama and Clinton. They are government property, not his. Reopen investigations into all of the Obama scandals. That will get their attention.
Washington is a den of thieves, whores, rats and vipers. I thought Trump would be better prepared for political hardball, but hopefully he will learn. It is obvious that the left and even some who are supposed to be on our side are out to destroy his presidency, and they will stop at nothing to accomplish it.
Obstruction of justice for thee but not for me:
Trump shared intel, so what?
And the most outrageous story, a so-called “conservative” want to enact the 25th Amendment to remove Trump:
He equates progressivism with patriotism. He is delusional. He sees any accomplishment, no matter how trivial, as outstanding. He is a theocrat and government is his church.
