I have just gotten home from my yearly Thanksgiving dinner at my son’s house. It was just the four of us, my husband and I, plus my son and his girlfriend, plus one, my old friend Pattie. Pattie has had a rough time the last few winters. She has lost her husband, then her mother, then her father….nobody should be alone on the Holidays. I pretty much insisted that she come to our dinner, which was much like trying to get a squirrel to take a bath. But she gave in.
Everything was going well, until, my son, trying to pick the right moment, told us all that his whole company had been laid off, even his boss. He had maybe one more week’s paycheck and then he would be back to being unemployed. Luckily, he already has a job interview lined up, but nothing is ever sure in this world. It’s a GM dealership, one of the biggest in North County (Where the famous Ferguson resides.) and it was only a matter of time before it closed. It’s bad timing because he was just starting to get back on his feet, and we all agreed at dinner, best not talk about it.
Everyone tried to be cheerful, but it’s never easy, when the news is filled with stress and worry.
As we drove down the street coming back home, the streets were full of parked cars, families visiting, eating…and I wondered to myself, how many other families had gotten bad news? I have noticed that my one neighbors, who always have their Christmas manger scene out first, are not at home much anymore. Their house was dark. It’s a good white family. (Sorry, I am counting the whites from now on.) Three kids, two grandkids. He had told me recently that sometimes he has had to work three jobs, one as far away as Texas. Yes, he drives to Texas to keep the family afloat. He would drive home on the weekends.
This is starting to be the norm in many parts of America. But the news is always, “HEY! The economy is doing good!”
Now, they just lie.
Pattie and I, were watching reruns of the Thanksgiving Parade, and stated talking. We have known each other since high school, and we started talking about how many businesses have been lost in St. Louis in our lifetime. The whole city has changed. Like the once great city of Detroit, the businesses here, have been destroyed, by unions, by globalism, by greed and corrupt politicians.
What’s left in jobs? Government jobs. Health care jobs. “Service” jobs. That’s about it.
On our way home, I didn’t even recognized some of the old neighborhoods. All changed. Not for the better either.
Getting home is always good after a big Turkey dinner. After getting the dogs out, I went and turned on our Christmas lights out in the front of the house, I didn’t really want to write, because the future, not only for our family, but for the whole country looks bleak. And what makes it especially hard to take, is it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, our economy is destroyed pretty much for all but those who are lucky enough to have the few good jobs, but more than that, our spirit is broken.
As I turn on the TV, FOX was doing a PR piece on the Bush Family. The nation is tired of the Bushes, and I thought, OH good god. They had our lives, as did the Clinton’s, and they did…nothing. Nothing. I really didn’t like Daddy Bush, I grew to be really disappointed in George W., and Jeb…stop it. Jeb isn’t going to get my son a job. He isn’t going to help us in any way. He will help, the Hispanics.
I’m starting to hate all of them. The Bushes think that just because none of the men were horn dogs in office, America should want them.
Wrong. We remember. Sorry Brit Hume, I can turn you off.
Once upon a time, even in my life, if a person worked hard, and was decent, and honest, he had a chance at the American dream….and the globalists (Clinton’s AND Bushes) have taken it away.
So, I get mad. Then I get sad. When I get sad, I read.
I went into my old closet full of books to look for some bit of history, and I found a book I really didn’t even know I had…it was even autographed. Who knows where I got it? Some book sale somewhere.
It was a book released in 2000, by Donald Trump:
The America We Deserve
Yes…guess what? Donald Trump has been wanting to run for the Presidency since 2000. Who knew?
So, I turned off the almost nauseating propaganda piece on the Bush Dynasty, being broadcasted to the whole nation on Thanksgiving Night, for god’s sake, (We’ll probably get the rerun on Christmas Day) and I picked up the book, and read a few pages.
I wanted to share with you an excerpt from The American We Deserve.(Page 27)
It’s time to look around and its tie for all of us who care about the American Dream to change the political buzz from happy talk to straight talk. Here’s the bottom line: If a policy threatens the American Dream, we need to go after it.
I’m going to shoot straight about terrorism and about the foreign threat. I’m going to talk plain about the economy and how to keep the system solid at the core. If we do that, then we can ride out any storm. I’m also going to talk about Social Security. I’m lucky enough not to have to worry about getting A Social Security check, but most American do and they’re right to be worried about their futures.
And he goes on about the kids, and ends the chapter with this:
I’m not worried about whether or not the intellectual/journalist /political establishment thinks I’ve got the stuff to talk about saving the American Dream. I believe in the American Dream. My business experience shows me that it works, and I want to do everything possible to see that regular Americans can enjoy the same opportunity for success and security that I have had. That means the American Dream unencumbered by bureaucratic ineptitude, government regulation, confiscatory tax politics, racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation.
We must all have equal access to the American Dream. It’s a dream we deserve and a dream worth fighting for.
And he wrote this in 2000.
I SWEAR to you, I had no idea that I had this in my closet. But I really needed something tonight to keep me from the hopelessness of what seems an ever ending series of political disasters making everyone’s life miserable. I happen to think God just plopped that book in front of me, as a sign, not to lose hope.
I can’t say, after seeing the entranced and powerful people coming at to destroy Trump, that even if elected, he would be able to pull of the miracle of trying to undo the damage that the Bushes, the Clinton’s and the Obama’s have done.
But…like tonight, I know deep in my heart the only answer is to have hope.
There ARE good people in the world.
And once in a while, miracles do happen. Sometimes in history, great men do make a difference.
Donald, I’m all in.
If a man can keep a dream that long, then he is truly, the real thing.
I only pray that the nation can hold on long enough to survive, until he can get into office.
Can Donald make America great again?
He is the ONLY one who wants to do it for us. For the Americans.
And we all know, who we are.
The big talk today was that Donald Trump suggests we should have a data base to track Muslims coming into the country, which had everyone in a politically correct tizzy. Why…who are WE to track people who actually hate us? That’s SO un-American.
Rush Limbaugh spend half the morning telling everyone that he actually didn’t say that…
BUT..Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, The Gateway Pundit, and just about everybody else jumped on the “OH! That’s horrible! “bandwagon.
I’m not surprised that Ben Carson didn’t look it up, as Trump is the man he is trying to beat, but I would have thought Ted Cruz’s people would have been more careful.
And by the way…talking from just a common sense point of view (As Ben Carson likes to say he ALWAYS does) why is a data base collection on a Muslim, any more insidious than the vast data the NSA is collecting on every single citizen in the country? So, let me get this straight. They collect his name and country, and that’s it? The rest of us have vast vaults of phone calls, emails, and just about everything we do stored in a vast NSA vault?
Boy, are we stupid. I want to be on THAT database!
Why is one abhorrent, and the other…not? At least the majority of Americans have not committed terrorist attacks.
Ben Carson at first said, “We should have a data base on everybody who comes in.” but afterwards he got down on Donald by saying we shouldn’t pick out one religion.
Well…sure we should. If that religion says in its Koran, “Kill all infidels.”
In the meantime, Obama is still ripping America apart on his usual vacations around the world, by telling Asia NOT to be like that God Damn America. (Okay, he didn’t say God Damn, but he might as well have repeated his mentor’s words.)
He said this:
“I really hope that all of you are fighting against the kinds of attitudes where you organize political parties or you organize interest groups just around ethnic or racial or tribal lines,” Mr. Obama said. “Because when you start doing that, it’s very easy for people to start thinking that whoever is not part of my group is somehow less than me. And once that mindset comes in, that’s how violence happens. That’s how discrimination happens. And societies that are divided ethnically and racially are almost never successful over the long-term.”
The man who single-handily divided our country on race, and hangs out with only the wealthy, acts as if…
He has NEVER committed any crimes in that area. The democrats are ALWAYS doing what they say the other party is doing, thereby trying to fool stupid people into not watching the truth.
Anyway…watch…Rush will put the country straight on Sunday, on the FOX morning show with Chris Wallace. Trump’s numbers will go higher.
The more they attack him on such ridiculous charges, the higher his numbers go. Keep it up guys!
I really hope that all of you are fighting against the kinds of attitudes where you organize political parties or you organize interest groups just around ethnic or racial or tribal lines,” Mr. Obama said. “Because when you start doing that, it’s very easy for people to start thinking that whoever is not part of my group is somehow less than me. And once that mindset comes in, that’s how violence happens. That’s how discrimination happens. And societies that are divided ethnically and racially are almost never successful over the long term.”
Here’s an email I got over the weekend, that I didn’t even know about….and I thought it was pretty cool. Trump’s creative solution to the ‘problem’ shows just WHY he would make a fantastic President.
(Thanks to Kris)
When Trump purchased and rebuilt Mar-A-Lago the Grand mansion and estate In Palm beach, Florida he got into a dispute with the city, who are well-known for being strict on zoning regulations.
Trump put up a 50 foot flag pole even though 30 foot is the maximum allowed. The city imposed a 1,000 dollar fine per day. While Trump and the city argued back and forth, the fine had reached 120,000 dollars so, Trump proposed a solution.
He would donate that amount to veterans organizations, would move the flag and pole to a different location in front of the mansion and would only use a 30 foot flag pole.
The city agreed. So Trump brought in the company who does Golf course construction had them build a 20′ foot high grassy hill and put a 30 foot flag pole on top of that…..Thank you Mr. TRUMP FOR flying our flag high and donating to our veterans you’re a TRUE AMERICAN…

For years, all through the Obama administration, all through the horrendous losses that were so hard-fought by our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, through Obamacare, through the disasters of the last seven years, I have waited for George W. Bush to say SOMETHING…anything, about what Obama has done to this country. What Obama has done to the war that was Bush’s legacy.
But he remained..silent. It’s so stupid. Jimmy Carter AND Bill Clinton have done nothing BUT talk about the republicans, but the Bush family…OH NO..they are just so above that silly gossip.
When I heard this morning that X-President…George “This mission is over” W. Bush, had come out and finally said something, I couldn’t believe my own ears. I cannot COUNT the number of times that I have been waiting for him to say something… and when he finally decides to say something he attacks…Ted Cruz?
TED CRUZ!? Seriously? How about when Obama gave Iran 150 billion and permission to go full steam ahead to make their nukes putting the whole WORLD in danger?
You could have said something, don’t ya think George? Didn’t you once say that Iran was Evil? What? Did you stop being human? An American? What?
Excuse me. You might as well slap the American people, because there really is no one closer to the Constitution than Ted Cruz.
The former president told a small group of Jeb Bush donors recently that Cruz gets under his skin and is the most serious challenge his brother faces for the Republican nomination, Politico reported.
“I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said, according to Politico, which cited more than half a dozen donors at the event.
One donor told Politico that Bush said he found Cruz to be “opportunistic” for his apparent alliance with Donald Trump.
Another said that Bush was worried Cruz would give his brother Jeb a run for his money.
So, Nobody Asks: What’s this REALLY about?
What it’s really about is George W. Bush himself. It’s not even about his brother. Donald Trump hit the Bush family where they NEVER imagined anyone would ever dare hit them…he put the blame of 9/11 square on George W….in a roundabout way.
“I really am convinced we’re in danger of the sort of terrorist attacks that will make the bombing of the Trade Center look like kids playing with firecrackers….No sensible analyst rejects this possibility, and plenty of them, like me, are not wondering if but when it will happen.”
“One day we’re told that a shadowy figure with no fixed address named Osama bin-Laden is public enemy number one, and U.S. jetfighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan….He escapes back under some rock, and a few news cycles later it’s on to a new enemy and new crisis.”
What did we hear afterwards about the 9/11 attacks from Bush? “We just couldn’t imagine this.”
Well, Donald Trump imagined it. And enough people have seen the 9/11 videos’ and some of us are starting to wonder if maybe the NEW WORLD ORDER globalists really had more to do with it than we dare imagine.
But why hate Ted Cruz?
Nobody Knows, but there is a good reason: Ted Cruz is the main guy in the Congress that is standing up for Constitution. Ted IS “We the People.” and in the Bush family, the motto is:
I’m with Trump. It’s BECAUSE of the elite greed of George W. Bush that we got Obama in the first place. He bailed out the banks, and giggled about it.
He is the elite of the elites. As George Carlin once said. “It’s a very small club, and you and I don’t belong to it.”
It’s just like George W. To not have enough guts to come out and attack Trump. He knows better. If he attacked Trump, Jeb’s polling number would go even lower. So…he goes after Cruz. Besides, there isn’t much to argue that he WAS the President when we were attacked.
Cruz, like Trump, was not afraid to speak:
“I have great respect for George W Bush, and was proud to work on his 2000 campaign and in his administration,” Cruz said. “It’s no surprise that President Bush is supporting his brother and attacking the candidates he believes pose a threat to his campaign. I have no intention of reciprocating. I met my wife Heidi working on his campaign, and so I will always be grateful to him.”
So, George Bush spoke for the first time, and attacked a fellow republican, and he did it because he doesn’t fear Ted Cruz. I’ve yet to hear him attack Obama OR Hillary.
What he DOES fear…is the American people….finding out that the elites of the world mean to do to them.
If that truth ever gets out, they might want vengeance.
For almost 8 long years, we have heard Obama blame the Bush Administration, for the economy, and the war in the Middle East. He has said that if Bush had not bombed Iraq, then this mess wouldn’t have happened and been passed on to him. And the economy was in such a mess, that it would take over ten years usually to come out of the recession. Not his fault….Bush’s.
Obama has taken NO blame, whatsoever, for anything that has happened since he has been in office. Hillary pretty much says the same thing. Looking back, the last President that I can remember accepting blame for any of his actions, was Richard Nixon. And that was because his own party helped kick him out.
So….here’s the question: Is a President responsible for whatever happens while they are in office? (Or a Secretary of State?)
That’s the argument that Trump has made against former President George W. Bush.
Trump said this to Chris Wallace in an interview last weekend:
“Jeb [Bush] said ‘We were safe with my brother. We were safe.’ Well, the World Trade Center just went down. Now, am I trying to blame him? I’m not blaming anybody, but the World Trade Center came down, so when he said we were safe, we were not safe. We lost 3,000 people. It was one of the greatest — probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country,” the Republican presidential hopeful said. “With that being said,” he added, “I’m not blaming George Bush, but I don’t want Jeb Bush to say ‘My brother kept us safe,’ because Sept. 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country.”
No matter how ‘nice’ a guy George Bush seemed to be…like Obama, not ONCE did he take any kind of blame for that day, even though, it was blatantly clear, that neither New York OR Washington D.C., had any kind of serious protection that day. That in itself is shameful. They like to BRAG about our superiority…where was it on that day?
Bush’s actions after 9/11, left many people in America wondering…what? We are going into Afghanistan and then taking out Saddam Hussein? Why? Because he once tried to kill your daddy? Because you needed to finish what your father didn’t? We…had NO clue.
We had…a frat boy, in the White House…we have one now.
The argument on the other side is: “Well, it’s not one man’s fault if we got attacked, the world is complicated. He should never be blamed for what happened. Was FDR blamed for the attack at Pearl Harbor?
No. He wasn’t. He should have been. FDR had received word several days before the attack, and didn’t pass the message on. Your top job as President is to defend your country here, FIRST…not after the fact.
The same thing happened on 9/11. The information that an attack was imminent had been going on ever since the FIRST attack on the World Trade Center when Bill Clinton was in office.
Clinton could have killed bin Laden….he left him for Bush.
“Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things as though he’s still on ‘The Apprentice,'” the former Florida governor said of his rival for the Republican presidential nomination.
“My brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country, he organized our country and he kept us safe. And there’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that.”
The trouble is, at the time, of course, we all united. But then, when Bush got on his microphone in New York, and made his little speech in the megaphone, I’m sorry. I found it lame. Like, somebody told him he should at LEAST say something. And when he took his god damn time going after ANYBODY…getting permission from this country, and whomever..
I’m sorry. Weak. Lame. Was our military that devastated? We didn’t want him to invade ANY country, just kill the guys responsible for the attack.
But, George had bigger plans. He used that attack as an opportunity to invade the Middle East. Lots of good stuff there in the Middle East.
Ben Carson just said, that while he wasn’t going to blame Bush for the deaths on 9.11, he did blame him for not going after bin Laden. The American people wanted revenge. Bush, should have made SURE we got it. But then, there’s Bush’s relations with the Saudi Family….and those…trillions of dollars worth of minerals.
Sure. Right. Obama…who needed SOME kind of foreign success after his horrible first four years, went and got him.
Today, on the Sunday talk shows, Bob Woodard said that the American people needed a Ronald Reagan, and Trump wasn’t it. Insinuating that Jeb Bush was.
NOBODY SAYS: Not in a million years does Jeb even come close to Reagan. Ronald Reagan would have said the same thing Trump is saying now about the events of 9/11.
“It wouldn’t have happened on MY watch.”
Ronald Reagan made the world safer by defeating the Russians. Both Presidents George H.W., and his son George W., have done pretty much the opposite. And when Obama got in: he just lit the match—-Fired up the engines…and put the whole Middle East into a burning hell hole.
Sorry Jeb. It’s wasn’t President George W. Bush that kept America safe the rest of his days in office, it was the American soldier, FBI, and ordinary citizens that did.
And that’s the big mistake that Jeb makes….acting like it was his brother that protected us all. He should have protected us…at FIRST.
So, the question is: Is Trump right for holding George W. Bush responsible for not protecting us?
In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Hell yes.” (Okay, I spoke for him. )
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!
Ann Coulter supports Donald Trump for President–she had this to say on the view:
During her guest appearance, Coulter also expounded on her support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Reminded that, in 2013, she said that America shouldn’t have a businessman as president, Coulter said that Trump is the exception to the rule, because while other candidates who don’t come from a political background are “not prepared for the rough and tumble of politics,” Trump has been enduring public and media criticism for decades.
She also suggested that Trump is a desirable candidate because he has nothing to gain by holding political office.
“Reagan, Romney, Trump — the only people who have run for president whose lives will be made immeasurably worse both by running and by winning,” Coulter said.
Okay, I didn’t like Romney. But the news that Ann likes Trump…means we will have a fearless fighter on our side.
Good news, don’t you think?
Pat Buchanan, has a great knack for putting into words, the obvious. In his last opinion piece he explains why many people are attracted to Trump:
When Trump says, “We never win anymore,” that resonates to these folks. They see 21st-century America as a nation that cannot win its wars, or secure its borders, or build an infrastructure of roads, bridges, rails and airports to match those rising in other countries.
Moreover, the spirit of revolt in the GOP, indeed, in both parties today, is not confined to the USA. It is roiling Europe. In Britain, France, Spain, Italy and Belgium, nationalism is tearing at the seams of nations. Secession from the EU appears to be an idea whose time is coming.
Right. Right. We see the rest of the world taking us over, while the Western Elite political families are busy making deals for their corporate friends, and their own families to stay in power…meanwhile they are building billionaire bunkers for the Holocaust they expect to happen from ‘climate change” but more than likely a Nuclear Iran.
Right now, most American would have to agree with Vladimir Putin who just said THIS about the United States:
“I think some of our partners simply have mush for brains, they do not have a clear understanding of what really happens in the country and what goals they are seeking to achieve.”
Mush. Putin masterfully explains Obama in one word.
Are you ready for the first democratic debate tonight?
I will, FORCE myself to watch it…just to let you know, the bloopers.
Since yesterday, the House has been in a Panic! The world as we know it, is about to end! All day long we saw meetings going on, congressmen being called to serve…serve…and SAVE the country!
Evidently, when McCarthy told everyone he was dropping out of the race for speaker, everyone went into shock…and tears.
From The Washington Post:
“It is total confusion — a banana republic,” said Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), a Boehner ally, as he recounted seeing a handful of House Republicans weeping Thursday over the downfall of McCarthy and the broader discord. “Any plan, anything you anticipate, who knows what’ll happen. People are crying. They don’t have any idea how this will unfold at all.”
What? There’s no crying in Congress!! What? There’s no crying in Congress!!
What a bunch of divas. What about the American people who are crying about their health care costs?
In the meantime, the rest of the nation is enjoying the most joyous video of the day…thank god for MS Columbia. We’ve had enough crying.
This was one of my favorite moments last night…both Doctor Carson and Donald Trump having a decent conversation about vaccines.
Most everyone thinks that vaccines are wonderful…look what the smallpox and polio vaccine has done around the world. Having said that….the pharmaceutical companies are going hog-wild on this vaccine and that vaccine, and too many vaccines being given at one time, that no real studies have been done on the effects of having all those different vaccines pushed on everybody.
I also don’t support the government getting into mandated vaccines…like they did in Texas when they started mandating that all teenage girls get a vaccine to prevent venereal diseases. Many veterans have complained about the side effects of their vaccines, so scientifically speaking, the science isn’t in on many of them. And big Pharma is pushing all of them. Shingles, and the flu vaccine being the two you see the most.
This week, Ben Carson and Donald Trump together share the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week, for showing the nation HOW subjects of any kind should be talked about. We need MORE discussions like this, not less.
Now…if there was a government mandated vaccine against liberal stupidity, proven to actually work…..I might consider it.
I watched Donald Trump speech last night, and one of the parts that I really enjoyed (besides the guy in the background that grinned all the way through his speech) was what the Trumpster had to say about how the Capitol Building, which has been surrounded by scaffolding since the Civil War it seems. He said it might not be finished before the inauguration.
Donald explained that SINCE it won’t be done by then, to make historical pictures look nice and wonderful, they plan to spend MILLIONS of taxpayers dollars to take the scaffolding down, and then put it back up again after the inauguration. Donald thought this was absurd.
“Why don’t you just hurry up and finish the project.” he asked the construction company. That’s what he would do, rather than take it down, and put it back up again, at the cost of millions.
Nobody is really talking about this absurdity, but almost everyone in the United States who has watched the establishes politicians in Washington D.C. know for a FACT, that that’s exactly what would happen if either Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton was elected. God FORBID their historical photo’s for their future presidential libraries be spoiled by an under construction Capitol building in the background.
I thought that was one of the most telling parts of his speech. Government waste, and the rich elites that make their millions, sucking the life out of us for their own benefit, is WHY Trump is popular.
I was so excited, I just might go out and buy one of those “Make America Great Again” hats and go visit my local Ferguson…who by the way, is getting a BRAND new fitness franchise where all the black lives that matter can join for $1 dollar, and buff up for their next riot.
Okay. On second thought: So maybe I’ll just wear it around my house.
There are better ways to solve life’s problems than by holding voodoo ceremonies, shooting your neighbors or sending twits-of-all-nations to Rio. Politics won’t do it. And politicians surely won’t. The best method of existential improvement is making money. –P.J. O’Roarke
There you go. Want to know why Trump is so popular? Money. Simple. Americans are tired of our politicians stealing our money, and our children’s future money and spreading it like free manual all over the world. NAFTA, CAFTA, and the newest let’s do it again in Asia, trade agreement, is all about stocks.
It’s not about you and me. Who makes the money off these deals? Not the American citizen. It’s Wall Street and their political butt-boys in Congress. They are all getting rich off these deals.
And as Donald Trump has said, the American people are tired of being patsies.
For instance…I can barely stand to drive around in my city anymore. It’s starting to look like Detroit. More than half of the cities in America are dying. New York–Wall Street has been thriving but how about everybody else? It took them ten years to rebuild something on ground zero. TEN years.
Detroit is such a cesspool, lions can walk around without being molested. How about L.A.? Can you still drive the streets of L.A. at night? St. Louis…the only thing still standing here is the Arch. Our once magnificent airport looks like some kind of bunker waiting for the Walking Dead. How you doing Mississippi? And how about New Orleans? Oh..it’s coming back they say…wow. But just step over those big rats on those empty houses we didn’t get around to tearing down yet. How about that Las Vegas…coming back? FOX says it is….but…somehow, I don’t believe it.
The way I see it, in this world now, there are only two ways to make money: Have a lot of it in the first place and invest, or win the lottery. Sooner rather than later, most all of us will be living paycheck to paycheck. The middle class was destroyed by Bill Clinton. He used up the last of the Reagan economy, and lots of people soared on the Tech bubble. The rest of the country was already dying,
If you don’t manufacture anything, then WHAT do you have to trade? That’s why when I read this piece by Lawrence Kudlow, I wanted to spit out my orange juice.
The rich men are raping the American taxpayer to make themselves richer and WE have subsidized their riches. Everybody knows it. It’s not rocket science. When you know that General Electric pays NO taxes, and not one Congressmen even burps up his afternoon whiskey sour about the matter, then you know, why they are so afraid of Donald Trump.
Lawrence Kudlow, works for the Washington Globalists.
For instance: Here’s his typical Wall Street thinking:
Free trade is also one of these prosperity building blocks, and Trump’s call for tariffs as high as 35% are worrisome in the extreme. We want Americans and workers all over the world to have access to the best-quality products at the lowest possible price. This is the centuries-long economic law of comparative advantage first taught to us by David Ricardo.
NOBODY: Right. Notice the words “all over the world to have access” We don’t PAY our politicians to make people rich all over the world. That’s Wall Street talking. The more people in the world that have money to buy electricity, or shop at Wal-Mart, the more Lawrence Kudlow’s doesn’t have to do anything that day but attend another GOP Bush fundraiser, and collect his dividends.
Let other countries fund their own electricity, why should we?
Do other countries take OUR products in? No. Kudlow thinks it’s a big world, and everybody should have a chance to make a buck in it..which sounds fine if the playing field is equal. BUT..it’s NOT. China won’t even allow our some of our products into their country. Kudlow, doesn’t care.
Now, watch carefully how he twist this next statement:
Nobody: Fine for you Mr. Kudlow, but not for the people here who lose their jobs.
As the supply of Mexican trucks goes up, this creates higher income for all Mexicans who then go out and spend the new money, not just at home, but in purchasing U.S. goods and services available on the market. And the purchase of American goods and services builds up the U.S. economy. It’s win-win.
Nobody: Uh— WHAT American goods do they purchase of ours? We make almost nothing here. We are SO happy to know you are thrilled that the Mexican is making himself a good living.
Because the U.S is the hub of the global trading system, a lurch toward protectionism in America would give other nations an easy excuse to erect higher trade barriers and the domino effect could shut down the global trading system. No wonder financial markets are so jittery
Nobody: What nonsense. What? They have trade barriers against us now!
But trade is also surprisingly vital to American jobs. A Heritage Foundation study finds that “international trade has boosted annual U.S. income by at least 10 percentage points of GDP relative to what it would have been without global trade, which translates into an aggregate gain of at least $1.7 trillion in 2013, or an average gain of more than $13,600 per U.S. household per year.”
Nobody: I sure as hell didn’t gain no $13,600 last year, did you? Where do they get this garbage? Who got MY money?
And here’s the REAL reason the Rino’s and established D.C. rich fat cats don’t want Trump to put America first: They are using America to subsidized their markets everywhere, and by that they get rich of the international dividends.
Free trade is also the greatest antidote to world poverty and deprivation in world history. Over the past three decades, according to the World Bank and other sources, the spread of free trade has lowered abject, dollar-a-day poverty by nearly 1 billion people.
See? They are saying Hey.. we really helped that Chinese guy, who can now buy NIKE’s! They care about the rest of the world mostly. You, they could care less about. Ask yourself why.
Money. Their money. In THEIR pockets. Zuckerface and Bill Gates wants the WHOLE WORLD to be on the internet, and so if they have to take our money to pass on to that African kid in the Congo who will also need a generator to run that computer, then so be it. America can pay for it. He’s also going to need an IPod and a Laptop.
So what if he doesn’t have indoor plumbing? He will NEED those updates.
Just put it on our tab.
THAT’s the insidious rationalization they give themselves at their dinner parties to justify the raping of the American middle class, so that, under the guise of “free trade” they can build a bigger middle class all over the world..so that the rest of the world can buy their multinational products: Like Wal- marts, and all that other stuff which is made in China. Not here. No…it’s all about THEIR flow of unending billions into their overseas bank account.
Sanders is saying the same thing as Donald Trump: BUT..Sanders wants like every liberal…socialism, and Donald trump wants real free trade.
He wants to put America first. Any fool that doesn’t want that should not be President.
Everybody has already moved out.
The good news is that the draft 14-plank economic plan that we have seen from Mr. Trump contains variations on most of these ideas. They worked. Growth exploded.
What this statement tells me is that Kudlow knows Trump is right, but he doesn’t think the average person will make it to the end of his article.
He’s probably right about that one.
It’s a quiet Sunday night here. I know there are enclaves left in America where there is still a middle class…eating out, drinking wine, going home secure in America, and they see nothing wrong with the global economy.
They live in gated communities, tied to golf courses, with locked gates.
But if Donald losses the elections, he can always make a lot of money building bigger walls around those rich people’s houses.
They’re going to need em’.
I usually try to stay away from politics on the weekends, but this was such a joy, I just had to post it.
Sarah is doing great here asking the questions. She’s on On American News Network, and looks fabulous with her American flag necklace and the flag waving behind her…
You go Sarah!
It’s so nice to see her, isn’t it?
Well–isn’t this fun? Donald Trump got into another fight with Roger Ailes, Megyn Kelly, and that poster boy for a New Mexico-America Cesspool, Jorge Ramos. All in one day.
I was watching this…Donald’s Speech in Iowa… thinking that the timing was perfect— people were sitting down to dinner –and thought it was going well, thinking about how clever Donald was for staging this…knowing full well that ALL the stations would cover it, despite the fact that the men who are running FOX especially, are probably still mad from playing his last speech that went on for hours. Is Donald taking advantage of his celebrity status and lead in the polls?
Message: I’m the winner! Join me!
DUE to the fact that the reporters did not speak into mikes and half of the question were NOT heard by the public, (intentional, you better believe it.) at first, when Donald seemed “mean” to Jorge, to some in America, it might have seemed mean on Trump’s part.
Wait. Good Americans have a right to question…right? But, Jorge was staging a protest, not a question, it was a planned attack to make Donald look mean.
How many times has Chris Christie told people to “shut up”? No matter, this was all over the news.
And Roger Ailes, is now demanding an apology from Donald to his favorite reporter, Megyn Kelly. Well..she must have broke down and cried. To THIS woman, Roger (who is a man and I’m SURE loves every one of those beautiful women he has working for him) is protecting his women…and his investment. We think men like Roger Ailes would never be a typical man. Ha.
It’s like a hormonal battle now…. I love it. America has been so devoid of ANY testosterone the last decade we are eating this up like testosterone addicts.
Trump went on to criticize Fox for attacking him, and he’s right. Donald is getting wall to wall coverage, only to have everyone go after him, and my husband said, “Don’t they realize they are just fueling his popularity?”
I had to laugh. Donald knows…he’s news now. They CAN’T ignore him, but Nobody Wonders if they think they show him too much, that he will slip up, or implode, and then they can go back to Jeb. I imagine they will continue to attack him.
And speaking of Jeb—(Do I have to?)
Jeb Bush doesn’t count Mexican babies born to illegal’s as “anchor babies.”
Jeb Bush, who favors large-scale immigration, has criticized pregnant foreigners who grab citizenship for their kids by flying into the country posing as tourists. Bush described the practice as “fraud,” and asserted that, “Frankly, it’s more related to Asian people coming into our country — having children in that organized effort, taking advantage of a noble concept, which is birthright citizenship”
So, does that mean that Chinese are NOT coming here out of love? What does Jeb have against the Chinese? So, if that’s true, why didn’t his brother do something about it? Anyway, “fraud” is a nice way of saying it’s not something that we want to worry about. Like we need not worry about giving our co worker the hot dog we dropped on the ground.
Are we ready for the Mono e Mono— Trump VS Jeb interview? Mr. Energy VS Mr. Angry Droopy?
And speaking of anchor babies…it was reported on Brett Bairt that there is an illegal anchor baby born every 93 seconds in the United States.
The rewards to the mother and father are huge. The mother, for example, can collect federal welfare on behalf of the child, and the adult child – as a U.S. citizen – will eventually be able to win a green card for his or her parents, despite their prior illegal entry into the United States.
As National Review writes:
71 percent of illegal-alien headed households with children.
Anchor babies will get bonus SAT and GPA points when they apply to college. Many corporations will continue this benefits program when considering their job applications as well. “Those are human beings and ultimately they are people, we’re not just statistics, they’re humans with stories,” Rubio said.
Well, the American citizens have a story Rubio, you might want to listen to it.
“[You start seeing massive lobbying efforts backed by fossil fuel interests, or conservative think tanks, or the Koch brothers pushing for new laws to roll back renewable energy standards or prevent new clean energy businesses from succeeding — that’s a problem.”
Charles Koch was shocked that a President would stoop so low:
Nobody Remembers that the stimulus that Obama was going to use to fix our infrastructure went to Solyndra..who went bankrupt. I don’t think the Koch Brothers were anywhere near that plant, or the failing Algae. Yes, remember Solyndra’s subsidy from Obama?
MORE OBAMA ENERGY FAILURES HERE:
Koch hit back:
“In the ’70s, I set up an organization called Council for a Competitive Economy, and I tried to recruit business people to oppose subsidies and corporate welfare,”
So, Joyanna, anything we DO know?
YES! Good news for the suffering middle class: Amazon is going to start delivering alcohol.
As National Review writes:
Amazon.com Inc. is offering
One-hour delivery of wine, beer and spirits in a U.S. city for the first time through its Prime Now program, adding a new twist to on-demand delivery starting in the Seattle area.
Nobody Knows how many of those Amazon delivery trucks is going to delivery to Ferguson and if they refuse to go there, will they get sued for being racist?
Nobody Knows...and next week, we will know even less!
I look forward to it.
Despite the fact that Jeb Bush went on the attack today, emailing Alabama republicans and making Donald Trump out to be some kind of baby killing, liberal nutcase, Donald Trump did a Trump Tsunami on the Friday night in Alabama….and it was shown on all the channels…ALMOST as if he was already President! When was the last time you can remember THAT happening? And he talked, and laughed, and was just a regular human being. They say you have to imagine yourself having a beer with the guy, and Donald does just that. .He REALLY knows how to sell himself…which is why he is going to stay ahead of the pack, because when it comes down to it, you have to sell yourself, and in this age of the camera and personality, the other guys, lets face it, in that department, they don’t stand much of a chance next to Trump.
What was really fun, was that as soon as his speech was over, NONE of the networks had any of their usual pundits on to interpret the message for you.
I think…they were all stunned. Not that we won’t hear how terrible he was on the Sunday talk shows. People love him.
Jeb Bush had this to say:
“Trump’s positions are out of step with the Alabama way of life,” reads the e-mail, which the Bush campaign shared with reporters.
Tell me, since WHEN does Jeb Bush know anything about Alabama’s way of life? When was the last time he was there? Who WRITES this stuff?
And speaking of stuff:
“Valerie sees Michelle and herself sitting on the boards of a handful of corporations, giving speeches for big bucks, writing books, and living large. Michelle has had the time of her life in the White House, and she doesn’t want to step down from that luxurious Air Force One lifestyle. Speaking to Steve Malzberg, Klein (a reporter) said he believes that such a move does not mean Michelle and Barack Obama are having marriage problems, but rather that Michelle wants to spread her wings after eight years of supporting her husband’s presidency.”
Right. How many of you out there believe that if you love someone, you go live in another country for a year, raise your hands?
Nobody Knows it, but it is being whispered that Michelle should get in the race…but I don’t know….that’s pretty far-fetched..but…uh…wait, I’m not letting it spoil my memories of Donald tonight. I wouldn’t even think about it if I was her…in fact, I hope she STAYS there.
It’s Saturday— Enough already.
