Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
There are three branches of government to maintain the balance of power in our system. The Executive, the Legislature and the Judicial. Since the 2018 election that gave majority power to the Democrats in the House of the legislature part, there have been senior members, heading important committees, abusing their new found power to depose the duly elected President of the United States, because they do not accept the results of the electoral college method of electing our Chief Executive, as set forth in our Constitution.
Ever since losing the 2016 Presidential election, they have been on a manic crusade to find something nefarious not there, to manufacturing one, in order to create an impeachable reason to continue this quest. So far, they have not been successful in this endeavor.
Their new strategy now, is to issue subpoenas in gay abandon, to any one with any connection to Donald Trump, to appear behind closed door hearings, that operate like Kangaroo Courts, denying their targets the protection of the 6th Amendment, that availing them of the right to cross examine their accuser and the application of the confrontational clause.
A Kangaroo Court is held by a legitimate judiciary authority who intentionally disregards legal or ethical obligations. It appears Chairman Adam Schiff, conducting these court interrogations, is on the wrong side of the bench.

After 3 years of calling for the impeachment of President Trump, the feckless Democrats have now latched onto a benign conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky, as evidence that Trump committed an impeachable act. Does any sane, non-partisan person really think that President Trump has committed a high crime or misdemeanor, and therefore, should be impeached?
Well, that's what the Democrats are hanging their hats on and are putting the citizens of the United States through the divisive misuse of the impeachment process. What a disgrace !
Since the Mueller probe turned up no collusion (conspiracy) by Trump, to the chagrin of the Democrats who thought for sure that Mueller was going to give them fodder for impeachment, they are now looking for anything to tie around the neck of the president to justify their insane quest to throw Trump out of office. So, what are the damning words that Trump supposedly said that would rise to an impeachable offense? You could classify the charges by the Democrats (and their flunky's in the media) as liars par excellence.
Let's examine what these lies are, by examining the words that Trump actually said in the phone conversation. The Democrats, mainly Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Jerrold Nadler, and other Democrats with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), are claiming that Trump offered a “quid pro quo” to Zelensky. A critical reading of the conversation showed that nothing of value was offered, therefore, there was no “quid pro quo”. Next, they claimed that Trump asked for a favor to dig up “dirt” on Joe Biden and his son Hunter. What Trump was asking a favor for was for Zelensky, as the new president of
Ukraine, to help in investigating attempts by the previous government to interfere in our 2016 election. There was no mention of Biden until 540 words later in the call. Another claim by the Democrats was that Trump threatened to withhold aid to the Ukraine unless Zelensky did us a favor. The fact is that Ukraine did not know that aid was put on hold by Trump until a month after the phone call. There was no “quid pro quo”. The aid was released sometime in August, it had nothing to do with the conversation between Trump and Zelensky.
The so-called “whistle blower” (supposedly a CIA worker in the White House) had no first hand knowledge of what was said on the phone call. He reported only hearsay and gossip from others. Many of the charges he made in his charge were incorrect which the transcript showed when it was released, making what he said moot and irrelevent.
Of course, to prove malfeasance by Trump, they claimed that he orchestrated a cover up. Are they kidding? What was the presentation to the public of the phone call transcript and the permission by Trump of his National Security Adviser and his emissary to Ukraine to testify
before Congress? That's a cover up?
This whole exercise, by the Democrats, is nothing more than a “Kangaroo Court Inquiry”, used to try to negate the will of the people and to overturn the election of a duly elected president, therefore, they continue this charade in hopes that this baseless charges will damage him in the eyes of the electorate. Even if the House votes for impeachment, the Senate will not convict him. This whole thing is a complete waste of time and money. They should all be ashamed of
themselves for putting the country though this..
The “fake news media” and their biased polls showing that Trump would lose to any of the Democrats running for president are just as reliable as the polls that showed Hillary Clinton winning in a landslide in 2016. The betting odds by the bookmakers in Las Vegas predict that Trump will win in 2020. I'll stick with the Las Vegas bookmakers not the biased press in determining the outcome of the next election, impeachment or no impeachment.
Hallelujah, 4 more years of Trump keeping America great!

That's the popular song made famous by Fats Domino (may he R.I.P.) in the 1950's, but the title has pertinence today as to what is gong on as our culture has come under attack by Progressives (a/k/a Liberals, Democrat Socialists).
Within the last few years, we've seen one tradition after another come under attack by the Progressives and in its place, laws have been enacted and court decisions have been reached making prevailing morality and social order the enemy and instituting a “feel good” anything goes mentality on how we should conduct our affairs and our lives. Political correctness reigns supreme.
This assault on our traditional values began in the 1960's when we passed “feel good” legislation declaring a “War on Poverty” under President Lyndon Johnson. The good intentions of helping the poor morphed into a plan to take from the successful in our society (a/k/a the rich and successful) and give to the less than successful by means of “income redistribution”. Instead of helping the poor better themselves, and after spending nearly $20 trillion since 1965, we have seen no marked improvement of the poor except that they have become more dependent upon the government for their everyday sustenance. In addition, the “War on Poverty” laws have had a deleterious effect upon the family, especially among the black community where over 70% of all black births are to single women without a father at home. The social consequences of this is now being manifested in the increase of criminal activity in that social class. Children growing up in a one-parent fatherless homes are many times more prone to drop out of school, indulge in petty crime as youngsters, get involved in gangs, and finally leading up to becoming adult criminals. As Fats Domino would say, “Ain't That A
Look around, what do you see? Drug use is being legalized in many states (and we have an opioid crisis to boot), and just lately we've had a couple of U.S. Supreme Court decisions that have turned our Constitution on its head. Those decisions were not based on constitutional law, but were based on the emotions of those judges own personal viewpoints and interpretations of what the law they thought it meant, not what the law actually meant.
It seems that Americans have become so “non-judgmental” that many people can no longer tell the difference between good and evil or right or wrong. Over the last few years, we have witnessed a lack of common sense morality that has real consequences for our nation. Here are some of the negatives I'm referring to: 1) The collapse of marriage (roughly 40% of marriages now end in divorce). 2) Violent crime, especially in inner cities, has reached epidemic proportions (ex: Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis etc.). 3) Poor government (one of the biggest factors is the dishonesty of our own politicians). 4) Dependence by people on the government for their sustenance (1 out of 5 people are getting some sort of a government handout). 5) The lack of civility and manners (especially among the young people who mostly come from single parent households (no father at home to give guidance).
Finally, there is a concerted assault on our Judeo Christian heritage. Members of the media, academics, gays, George Soros, Democrat Party, and race baiters like Al Sharpton, Black Lives Matter, and Jesse Jackson, along with that “Fascist anti-Fascist” group called ANTIFA, have banded together to undo hundreds of years of traditions, traditions that have made the U.S.A. the greatest country and the envy of the entire world. Remember, in 2008, Barack Obama said that, if elected, he would “transform America”. Now, after his 8 years in office, what does that “transformation” look like? Now we have Donald Trump as president who is trying to undo what Obama did during his tenure in the White House. Will he succeed before the next election in 2020? It all depends on the electorate in November 2020, whether common sense will prevail or will we fall further into the abyss of Marxism/Socialism which the Democrats (including Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders etc.) will be offering up as an alternative to Trump? If they succeed, then Fats Domino's song of “Ain't That a Shame” will be the cry of American patriots and grass-roots citizens as the USA slowly slips into what happened in the demise of the Roman Empire or what is happening in Venezuela today under Marxist/Socialist Nicolas Maduro, and in Castro's Cuba. Let's hope that the song “Ain't That a Shame” is not revived in the future over the demise of the U.S.A.

Remember when the 3R's were “Readin, wRitin, and Rithmetic” , well now we have a form of the 3R's which is promoted by the loony left liberals, the phrase is now “Russia, Racist, and Recession”. All those R's are meant to denigrate and demean our president, Donald Trump, in their concerted attempt to remove our duly elected president from office.
The loony left cannot get over the fact that a non-politician outsider, like Donald Trump, was able to beat the the liberal establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, when 95% of the
media said that she was a shoo-in to be elected in 2016. Especially now since Trump has had such great success in the face of such overwhelming opposition by the media and the Democrats in challenging the “status quo”, they have become more unhinged than ever. No matter what the loony liberals throw at him, which doesn't stick, the more they conjure up something negative to try to undermine his presidency and the more unhinged and negative they become.
With all his personal “warts”, Trump has gotten things done and the more frustrated his enemies become as a result. Nominating two “originalist” Supreme Court justices; lowering the tax rates for all taxpayers; abolishing onerous Obama regulations on business; negotiating better trade deals around the world; and using his authority as Commander-in-Chief to stem the flow of invading illegals entering our country; etc., etc., all accomplishments that the loony left can't stomach. As the stock market goes up and the unemployment rate goes down, Trump's enemies go nuts. It seems that if his enemies love their country as much as they hate Trump, our country would be vastly better off.
So, instead of putting our country first, the Democrats (a/k/a Progressives, Democrat Socialists) they are hell-bent on trying to impeach President Trump. All sane people know that that would be an impossible task, but they as so blinded to the facts by their loony liberal ideology that they can't see the fallacy of their actions.
It seems that the loony liberal Democrats can't seem to let go of their animosity for President Trump, they are like a pit bull who won't let go of its victim. We've just spent 2 3⁄4 years investigating a non-crime called Trump's “Russian Collusion” (a/k/a conspiracy) in which the Special Counsel (Robert Mueller) found that Trump didn't collude with the Russians. That made the 4th investigative group to find that result (the FBI, the House, the Senate, and the Mueller investigation).
After that ignominious defeat, the Democrats and their media flunky's latched onto the term racist to hang around Trump's neck. That didn't seem to work either, so they then put their “blood money” on the term recession, hoping that that would be the straw that broke the back of the Trump re-election campaign. Imagine hoping that millions of workers would lose their jobs as the result of a recession? What kind of wish is that just to try to get rid of our duly elected president?
Now that these outrageous attempts of removing Trump from office have failed, what is the the next step on the part of these losers? Stay tuned, it is not the end of this anti-American foolishness on the part of Trump's enemies.

Shouldn't that headline be the new motto of the New York Times? After another untrue story making its way into print, at the once beloved New York Times, you'd think that they would change the direction of the paper to make sure that the stories they print are both truthful and verified?
For years now, and especially since the election of President Trump, the “Grey Lady” (maybe the paper should be called the “Red Lady”) they have been on a mission to do anything that might hurt the presidency of Donald Trump. “Trumped up stories” (no pun intended) about Trump and his administration have been fodder for quite a few apologies and excuses by the paper as to why they can't present the news truthfully and without bias.
They, along with other news outlets including the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, etc. have been over 90% negative about Trump and his administration (a figure by the Harvard University). Never in our history has there been such an organized effort to undermine a sitting president. Day after day, the attack against the president is relentless, not only about Trump, but to his associates who work for him, and to his immediate family. Nothing is sacred to these bullies in the press.
Some people say that journalism is dead and that the main stream media is now the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Hardly ever is there a positive word mentioned or any credit given for the policies put forth by President Trump. Even if the media is silent about his successes, that omission is tantamount to saying something negative. It seems the N.Y. Times and the others can't get over the fact that Donald Trump won the last election. It has been noted that 95% of the media in the 2016 election endorsed Hillary Clinton editorially, and still he won the presidency. And even during his 2 1/2 years in office, the animus toward him seems to have gotten worse. There really is a “Trump Derangement Syndrome” in play here.
The one positive thing is that the electorate seems to be saying is “enough is enough”, with the exception of the loony liberal left (a/k/a Progressives) who can't seem to let go. Trump just endured 22 months of a “fake” conspiracy put forth by the Democrats and their flunky's in the news media, and they still won't let go as they are still looking for another “bite of the apple” by continuing the charade with faux impeachment hearings. What a waste of time and money. Instead of legislating, the Democrat politicians are still investigating a non-crime, which was found by the FBI, a House committee, a Senate committee, and the Mueller Report to be a figment of the imagination of his enemies.
Yes, a free press is one of the cornerstones of our democratic republic, but the actions of the N.Y. Times, and the other media outlets, are abusing their rights by incorporating false news and peddling it as the truth. The N.Y. Times, was once called the “paper of record” for many years, but it has now become a partisan propaganda publication. That's why the motto of the paper should be changed to “All the News That's “Unfit” to Print”

You will need a program to follow who the racists really are. The politically correct proponents, who are holier than thou, offers a clue by their opposition of logic against emotion. Logic requires a certain amount of intelligence, lacking in the Democrat side of the House of Representatives, whose sole purpose is to cause chaos and havoc for President Donald Trump, in his endeavor to repair the damage done to our Republic by the Obama administration.
You don't have to be a genius to know what will happen if the Democrats gain the upper hand in the Senate and regain the executive branch of government. It will seal the fate of the country, because they will have the power over Justice and the Supreme Court, to mandate the direction our country will take.
There is a new breed of "DINOS" (Democrats in name only) metastasizing within the Democratic Party, identified by names like the "SQUAD" who operate by reverse racism
and bigotry, aimed at the "White Male Christian" and America's conservative values.
They are waging a war against our Founding Fathers, because they were white.
Tyranny takes root when sane voices remain mute.

The full context of that quote in the headline is: “Democrats Say No One is Above the Law, but My Question is, How Come Illegals Are”? To listen to the Democrat candidates for president, you'd think that anyone who can enter our country illegally should be accepted and taken care of, no ifs, ands, or buts. Doesn't that show that the Democrats are using a double-standard to justify their views on illegal immigration?
Since the Democrats and their acolytes in the main stream media (a/k/a fake news), parse every word or action of President Trump to make him look bad and unworthy of being president, they all seem to excuse the illegal acts of their own cronies such as Hillary and Bill Clinton, James Comey and assorted others from the Obama administration. It seems they turn a blind-eye when one of their own has skirted the law. In other words, their friends are “above the law”, which is the height of hypocrisy.
The American public, from most all polls, are against the free flow of illegal immigrants into our country, but the Democrat candidates all seem to take the opposite view of the “hated” President Trump. No sane person could or should embrace illegal entry into our country. In fact, just a few short years ago, many of these same Democrats were in favor of strict enforcement of the border, just as President Trump has. They have included such Democrat powerhouses as ex-President Obama, Senator Chuck Schumer, Senator Diane Feinstein, and former Senate Democrat leader, Harry Reid, among many others. Since President Trump took office, these feckless Democrats views have done a 180 degree turn and opposed the Trump decisions regarding the border, and have accused him of being a racist, a bigot, and a clone of Hitler. I guess the same could be said of those Democrats who supported Trump's policies in the past? A typical Democrat double- standard.
Besides turning a blind-eye on the conditions at our border, they also have turned a blind-eye on the actions of Hillary Clinton and her actions while our Secretary of State in the Obama administration. She blatantly disregarded the rules and regulations of her office, but no outrage on the part of her fellow Democrats. Was she “above the law”? It'll be interesting to see what Attorney General Barr, Inspector General Horowitz, and Special Investigator Durham will come up with and expose when their investigations are disclosed to the public. I believe it will be an eye-opener and a black eye on the Democrats and the hierarchy of the FBI and the Obama Department of Justice in their quest to undermine the Trump candidacy and the eventual Trump presidency.
Yes Democrats, no one should be above the law and to your chagrin, it'll be your compatriots who will feel the wrath of the law when all the damning facts come out in the near future. The beneficiary of these reports will be none other than the “evil” President Trump, who will be running for re-election in 2020. Isn't that ironic?
