Finally!

Yesterday, a new President was sworn into office.  But it wasn’t without, well, issues…

Some 60 Democrats boycotted the Inauguration of the 45th President.  Protestors became unruly and trashed several businesses while others blocked access to the event.  And “entertainers” attacked the President’s youngest son via the media.

From the Party and it’s followers that supposedly preaches & teaches tolerance, acceptance, and anti-bullying, don’t you find this just a tad hypocritical?  Those that have placed themselves on the moral high ground have come up extremely short when compared to the reactions of the opposition from the Inauguration ceremonies of four and eight years ago.  But then again, what do you expect from those who state that they stand for one thing, do the complete opposite, and are completely oblivious to their hypocrisy?

Regardless, the Inauguration of President Trump could not have come soon enough.  The direction of the country from sliding into the dustbin of history should be reversed if even part of President Trump’s Inauguration speech comes true.  But it’s not going to happen without its challenges.

President Trump (oh how I’m going to love typing that!) has two years before the next election cycle to show progress on his campaign promises.  The Senate will be in play as there is a bare majority of Republicans in that Congressional house.  If the Democrats show complete obstructionism, that could backfire on them.  If they show “reasonable” bipartisanship, then they may pick up some seats in Congress, and in the critical Senate.  But let’s consider the following that has occurred under the previous President (from an email that has been making the rounds):

  • Democrats lost the House and ceded the majority of governorships in 2010, held the Senate in 2012 with Obama’s re-election, then lost control of the Senate in 2014 and control of the White House this year. All told, Democrats have shed 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 12 governorships.
  • Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend. Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy. Liberals think they know what is best for everyone. Liberals are not happy until they are running and ruining YOUR life.
  • Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

I can only hope that the Progressive Left continue to demand their safe spaces, diaper pins, and bad behavior – it will serve as a reminder to all decent Americans that the adults need to be in charge, not a bunch of temper-tantrum throwing ill mannered adolescents looking for their next handout fix.

We The People need to remember what the politicians, especially the Progressive Liberal Democrats, have done to this country.  We must hold the President, Congress, and the Judiciary accountable for their actions.  We must also hold our State and Local government officials accountable as well – we cannot continue to elect politicians and then place our attention on autopilot.

Be well, my Friends.

Really?

This upcoming Friday will see the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  What is so unusual about this event is the response of the losing party and their supporters.

Protests, disruptions, and political impediments are all planned for the event and beyond.  Hollywood actors, performers, political pundits, students, politicians, and others are all getting in the act of civil disobedience and/or spouting off.  And yet, I really wonder if they really understand what they are doing…

Many of them state that the incoming President represents an end to Democracy, and blame the Russians for hacking or otherwise influencing the election.  When questioned how the election of Trump is an end of Democracy, they state that a misogynist, racist, anti-gay, anti-immigration (insert anything else here) President was elected and will promptly be taking over the country. 

Sort of like Obama with his pen, phone, and Executive orders, I presume…

The Hollywood and entertainment crowd has been especially vocal, putting out commercials and speeches calling for public pressure to demand that the President-Elect step down.  Let’s have a moment of clarity here, shall we?

Actors and entertainers, in general, are paid performers who’s purpose is to create an alternate reality for their customers (you and I) that is believable.  In other words, to become someone or something that they are not for the purposes of entertainment.  Why these folks believe that the popular status they have as professional liars translates over to influencing rational, thinking people is beyond me, especially if that performer is a drug-addled self-indulgent self-promoting moron.  Now I realize that these folks have an opinion, and it is their right to put it out there for all to hear if they so wish, however, it is also my right to reject their opinion.

Come to think of it, actors and professional politicians have a lot in common…I’ll let you make the connection…But let’s get back to the reality of it all.

Many of these protestors state that they are protesting in order to save the United States from the effects of a Donald Trump Presidency.  Other than character assassinations, they haven’t really brought out any credible arguments that the United States will self-destruct under a President Trump.  Some of the arguments that I have heard over the past couple of weeks include:

The number of people that will not be insured will increase if ObamaCare is repealed.  The reality is that Obamacare is imploding under it’s own inefficiency, and is not living up to a fraction of what the Democrats promised over seven years ago.  People are not able to afford some of the most basic insurance packages.  Government should not be in the health-care business at all.  ObamaCare does need to go.

A Trump Administration will not be immigrant friendly.  The purpose of the Executive Branch is to enforce the laws that are passed by Congress, of which are the Immigration Laws that state under what conditions a person may legally immigrate to this country and become a citizen.  For those people who are in this country illegally, either by crossing the border without papers or here on an expired visa, they have broken the laws of this country and can be deported if/when apprehended.  Sanctuary cities, by their very nature, are illegal on both State and Federal levels, and the mayors/administrators of these cities can also be prosecuted.  These are facts that those on the Progressive Left seem to want to ignore.

The civil rights of minorities and LGBT will be under attack.  No where in the statements of the Trump campaign has there been a statement that the civil rights of various groups would be repealed or under attack.  The impression that I get is that rights of all people, regardless of who or what they are, will be supported.  Perhaps those who received “special treatment” from the last Administration are afraid that their privileges are about to be revoked.

The Russians influenced the election by leaking emails in order to defeat Clinton.  I haven’t seen any direct evidence that Russia leaked the emails, by Wikileaks or anyone else.  Of a bigger concern, of which the protestors conveniently ignore, is that no one at the DNC denied that the content of the emails was false!!  I would also like to point out the glass-house these same twits are ignoring – the Obama Administration spent millions of American tax dollars trying to influence the election process in Israel.  Last, Clinton illegally set up a private, relatively unsecure server to conduct State Department business, of which was hacked by multiple foreign entities, compromising the United States foreign policy.  As far as I’m concerned, Clinton and the DNC set themselves up for failure by engaging in shady and illegal activities, and they got what they deserved – defeat.

Our foreign policy will become a shambles!!  Compared to what the Obama administration has done, anything would be an improvement.  Disastrous deals with Iran and alienating our allies has been the norm for the past eight years.  We’re already a laughingstock, and need to build up a lot of credibility – fast.

 He’s not my President!  Oh, grow up already!  Obama was my President even though I didn’t vote for him.  Suck it up, Buttercup!  (Perhaps it is appropriate that the new Liberal symbol is a safety pin…)

Diaper

Quite frankly, I do not see an end to the infantile actions of the Progressive Left and their sycophants – I see an increase in their activities even after the inauguration.  The only way that a Trump Presidency will shut down their critics is to be hugely successful.  Perhaps then we’ll all see what the politicians have screwed up all these years.

Until next time…
