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.
You've got to hand it to the Democrats (a/k/a liberals, Progressives and Socialists) for latching onto a word or phrase like a pit bull latches onto its victim. Since the Mueller Report fizzled out out for the Democrats by finding President Trump not guilty of collusion (i.e. conspiracy) with the Russians, the liberal radicals are now incessantly using the word “racist” to label President Trump and his supporters. All sense of decency is being thrown out the window in their quest to undermine the president and to hopefully, for them, to win back the White House in 2020.
The question is, will this slander and libel work against the president or will the electorate say enough is enough and and send his detractors (the anti-Trumper's) packing and re-elect the president for 4 more years?
Never in all my years have I seen such a concerted effort to disparage and vilify an individual, in this case President Trump, like the Democrats and their flunky's in the media have been trying to do ever since he announced that he was running for president. With little to no facts, only emotion and innuendo, they have systematically been on a crusade to delegitimize President Trump by constantly using half-truths and outright lies about him, his family, and those who surround him. It seems to be a 24/7 assault on his character and his policies no
matter what the truth might be. These attacks remind one of the Soviet Union and the KGB as they tried to purge all who might be a thorn in the side of the oppressive regime.
The United States is not the Soviet Union and to imply otherwise is disingenuous to say the least. Just because the last election didn't turn out the outcome they thought was in the bag for Hillary Clinton, doesn't give them the right to use the tactics of the KGB to reverse a result the electorate voted for.
One thing in President Trump's favor is that he doesn't take personal assaults laying down. He comes right back at his critics by using Twitter and Facebook to get his side of the story out to the cyber universe, and he generally gives back twice as much as he gets. Of course, he then gets criticized by his political enemies for defending himself like any wounded “animal” would do to protect himself and his family. When 90% of the main street media is against him and his Administration, he has no choice or recourse than to fight back. Yes, he might be crude and gruff at times, which some might find offensive, but at least you know where he stands on the issues. He says what he means and means what he says. How refreshing is that?
Remember, we didn't elect a Pope, we elected a leader, and President Trump is that leader. So will the latest charge against him as being a “racist” stick with the public or will they conclude that this is a cheap slur against him for purely partisan reasons with no real basis in fact. His actions speak louder than his words and that will be the reason why he will be re-elected in 2020.

That seems to be the thinking of the 20 plus candidates for the Democrat nomination. All decry the shootings in Texas and Ohio, but is the shootings of 53 and the killing of 7 in Chicago over a weekend any different from the shootings in El Paso and Dayton? Also, include the fact that Baltimore has reached 200 murders this year alone, thereby taking over the top spot of murders per 100,000 residents in the United States. Where's the outrage with those damning statistics? Is it less of a crime that murders in those cities are less important than the shootings in Texas and Ohio?
Before all the bodies were recovered in El Paso and Dayton, the feckless Democrats (and their main stream media cohorts) were accusing President Trump of being part of these massacres. How ridiculous is that? Does politics trump (no pun intended) all sense of propriety? Who are those who pass judgment on others because of partisan considerations? Even after President Trump gave his heart felt condolences to the victims and their families, and his recommendations for possible future legislation, some of the Democrat candidates accused him of encouraging those demented individuals to commit those horrendous crimes. Some even used this tragedy to fund raise (the Democrat National Congressional Committee did this). Have they no conscience of what is right and wrong? Calling the president of the United States a racist, a bigot, a clone of Hitler etc. is beyond the pale, and these people want to be the
If you listened to the main stream media, mainly CNN, MSNBC, NPR etc., you'd think that President Trump was leading the charge of encouraging these shootings by giving aid and comfort to these mental-case killers (shooters). Can't they let their hatred and animosity against President Trump be muted at a time of national mourning over the victims of these shootings?
Using the reasons they give for using this inflammatory rhetoric, makes common sense appear non-existent. Was Bernie Sanders responsible for the shootings of the Republican baseball players by one of his ardent supporters? Also, what about the rhetoric of Representative Maxine Waters, who implored people to confront and harass Trump supporters, and for the other Democrats who have been calling our president a traitor, a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, among other epithets? Aren't those incendiary words? Why do these people get a pass while condemning President Trump? In addition, what about the words and deeds of the liberal and progressive Hollywood types such as Robert DiNero, Kathy Griffen, Tom Arnold, Rob Reiner, Alyssa Milano, Madonna etc., etc. Their words and deeds are even worse than what they accuse President Trump of saying and doing. President Trump is a “politically incorrect” counter-puncher who fights back when his critics falsely accuse him of bad behavior or being unpatriotic. As the old saying goes, “people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones”.
Using President Trump as the “pinata” every time some nut-job commits a senseless massacre, is a disgrace, especially by the same phonies who preach tolerance, but are the one's who are grossly intolerant. Shame on their duplicity.

Rhetoric from Democrats to the horrific killings in El Paso, TX. and Dayton, OH. is disgusting. Using the tragedies to score points against the President has no foundation other than to disrupt his administration.
Using their own hatred in accusation of him stirring the hatred pot is ludicrous, when considering persons like Maxine Waters, Madonna and other staunch liberals, who endorse using any method to discredit and destroy him, including violence.
Unrestrained interpretation of the First Amendment gives license for the loonies to use that right for heinous deeds, and needs to be revisited to tighten up its frayed ends and still maintain its meaning for innocent and responsible citizenry.
Weapons are inanimate and can't be manipulated to function on their own. They are objects that require intelligence to operate for their purpose.
A chisel and hammer in a sculptor's hand creates art; in the hands of a deranged person, it can be a shiv to be plunged into a body and a weapon to crack open a skull.
Media, technology, entertainment, religion and mental health are some of the things that influence intelligence, Not the real hate mongers with an agenda, disguised in empathy clothing, who search for somebody to blame and not to find solutions.

That song by Kenny Rogers should be played before any gathering of Democrats who are pushing to impeach the president.
It seems the “egg on their face” Democrats can't seem to let go of their narrative that President Trump committed impeachable crimes of which four agencies said he didn't commit (the FBI, the House Committee on Oversight, and the Senate Committee on Oversight, and the Mueller Report). Even after the disastrous performance of the so-called architect of the Mueller Report, Robert Mueller, they (the Democrats) want to continue the charade of harassing the president by continuing the witch hunt that was started under the previous administration of President Obama. When will the saner heads of the Democrat Party raise its ugly head and start doing the business of the American people? Instead of wasting time and money trying to unseat
a duly elected president, why don't the House of Representatives address the problems of illegal immigration, repair of the country's infrastructure, and add to the economy etc.? Those areas affect people's lives, not the incessant investigation of the president of the United States which has been shown to be a hoax and a vindictive exercise of hatred for another person (in the case the president of the United States).
After The Mueller hearing, which was a disaster for the vengeful Democrats, and from which the Democrats did not get the “smoking gun” that they thought that Mueller was going to give them by his halting, out-of-touch, frail looking presentation, the Democrats have now doubled-down on their quest to continue their desire to unseat our president or to try to make him lose his re-election bid in 2020.
As the one of the anti-Trump FBI agents, at the beginning of the Mueller Investigation who said of the charges of Trump's conspiracy (a/k/a collusion) with the Russians, that there was no “there there” to hang the noose around the neck of President Trump in colluding with the Russians, it should have ended there. These frustrated Hillary Clinton Democrats are like a crazed pit bull who won't let go of its victim. Until the leadership of the Democrats can convince the radical Democrat Trump haters from continuing their misguided “coup attempt” against the president, they will forego any chance of defeating President Trump at the polls in the 2020 election. Those members with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) will lead their party into oblivion for the next few election cycles.
President Trump and the Republicans should encourage the path these disgruntled Democrats are pursuing because they are “the gift that keeps on giving” to their chances of maintaining the White House and to take back the House of Representatives and keeping the Senate.
So what Kenny Roger's song advised to potential losers (in this case the Democrats) of “Know When to Fold 'Em”, should be sufficient to bring sanity back into our political discourse, but I fear, with the hatred of President Trump so intense and ingrained among the Democrats, they will bury themselves without even the help of the Republicans.

That phrase cannot be attributed to any one particular person, but the gist of that saying gives poignancy to today’s liberal (a/k/a Progressive) thinking of the many government policies and programs that have not turned out the way they were originally intended. Do any government policies ever turn out the way they were intended?
Many of the social programs of the 20th Century were enacted with the intention of doing “good” for society, but after trial and error, the results, of these social experiments, have been less than was envisioned by the “benevolent” people (mainly liberal politicians) making those proposals. Feel good legislation, like trying to help the needy and downtrodden, trying to make amends for the “sins” of the past, and trying to even the “playing field” to make situations more “fair”, have, in many cases, turned out badly, much to the chagrin of the proponents of these misguided programs, but still they push on. The old saying, “Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up” seems to be the “modus operandi” of today's liberal (a/k/a Progressive/Socialist).
A perfect example of the effects of this phrase is the consequences that resulted from the enactment of President Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” in 1965. The intentions of making life more livable for the old and the poor were honorable and compassionate, but the results have been less than fulfilling and, in many cases, downright disastrous. This was the epitome of trying to institute the “Nanny State” mentality into the fabric of our society, and which the Obama Administration tried to do in the 8 years of its presidency in trying to complete the job started by Lyndon Johnson. Not only has it not eradicated poverty, but it has had some very harmful effects upon some of our most vulnerable citizens. Medicare and Medicaid were setup to make life better for both our senior citizens and the poor. No doubt Medicare has helped seniors who have or had health problems, but like most all benevolent government programs, waste, fraud, and inefficiency were prevalent in the administration of this program. Both these programs are going broke in a few short years, and in order to sustain them; massive infusions of government (our tax dollars) money will be needed to keep these programs afloat. Along with Social Security, these programs are nothing more than a government “Ponzi” scheme that will come crashing down in the near future, especially since the “baby boomers” are retiring at a really fast clip. It'll make Bernie Madoff look like a piker.
The “War on Poverty” also exacerbated a problem in the inner cities by encouraging couples not to marry, thereby causing the out-of-wedlock births in the black community to approach 73%, thereby relegating many of these poor people to remain on the government dole with little hope that many of them will be able to free themselves of being dependent on the government for a handout.
Another area where good intentions have gone awry has been in the area of so-called “climate change” (a/k/a global warming). Most all of us, if not all, want clean air, clean water and less pollution in our lives, but some people have perverted this cause by trying to cash in financially by purposely scaring the people into believing that more rules and regulations are needed or we will be confronted with dire environmental consequences. In other words, they think they can change Mother Nature, an almost impossible task. Of the bills that the Democrats have pushed in the past, one was called “Cap and Trade” (the word tax should be used in place of the word trade), this was a perfect example of government sticking its nose into places that it has no business to be in. If it had passed (no chance today since Republicans control the presidency and the Senate), it would have raised all our taxes dramatically (it would be especially harmful in this time of economic progress) and it would've put a dagger through the heart of our job generating private businesses. It was an anti-business, anti-free enterprise piece of legislation that would've prolonged our slow recovery well into the future. Even if it was passed, it would have had little or no effect upon our environment, as man, as stated before, cannot control Mother Nature, even if “faux” recipients of the Nobel Prize, Barack Hussein Obama and Al Gore, have told us otherwise.
Yes, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”, but we can bring back some rational reality in our country and in our lives by electing politicians with a strong conservative background, like we did on Nov. 8, 2016, and a philosophy of helping people to help themselves with a minimal amount of government interference. A helping hand instead of a handout is the role of a compassionate government. This philosophy is one of the reasons why President Trump was elected. Let's hope he can get it passed into law.

The behavior of some congressional legislators is alarming. Especially four female radical left freshmen House members, who appear to resemble sleeper agents for a nefarious system of governance, abusing First Amendment rights, to subvert the principals and laws of our United States.
The apocalypse four are Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. The latter two are Muslim with strong anti Semitic rhetoric.
After listening to them constantly expressing how America sucks, they formed a press conference to tell everyone how they love and how great the country is and how their contribution adds to it, while like a cow relieving its udder, using the press conference to empty the venom from their fangs on President Trump.
Taking only two questions, one of them directed to Ilhan Oma, wasn't liked and she shook it off with saying, she didn't want to dignify that question with an answer. A dishonest dodge to avoid implication.
Through millennia, claimants' of being "Champions of the People," many have turned into tyrants.
I don't care if these four were born in this country or are citizens, or what color they may be; but you can be sure it's not red, white and blue the way they have been disparaging the country.
They are a danger to our country and never be taken lightly.

The complete quote by Sir Walter Scott (an Eighteenth Century Scottish author) is, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”.
Doesn't that quote sort of describe the present-day politicians who are now running our country? No matter what party you are affiliated with or support, you'll have to admit that deception (and obfuscation) are endemic as to how they operate in the pursuit of their political
It seems that all politicians are not in favor of excess government spending, but how come we have excess government spending? It seems that all politicians are against poverty and for the poor people, so why do we have more poverty and poor people today than in the past? It seems that all politicians are against excess taxation, but why do they continue to raise our taxes (at least the Democrats want to do that), especially against the the job-producing entrepreneur class, the “doer's not the takers”? Many politicians (mainly all Democrats) say they are in favor of border security, but why are they against the wall that would cut down on illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling? Most all the politicians seem to be against all the excesses of government, but we seem to have more excesses than ever before. Is that the “tangled web” Sir Walter Scott was referring to?
In this, one of the best stock market and economy in years, we have a group of politicians ( mostly liberal Democrats) who are continually bad-mouthing the economy and its present architect, President Donald Trump. What could be up is down (food stamps usage, unemployment rates (especially black and Hispanic), and poverty is the lowest in years. And, what could be down is up (wages, the stock market, consumer confidence etc.), yet all you hear from the Democrats and the “fake news” media is nothing but “doom and gloom”. It's like they are living in a fantasy world all their own.
Compare these results with the mediocre economic results of the Obama years, where we never averaged more than a 2% GDP in any of his 8 years. Today our GDP is averaging around 3% and 3.5%. Doesn't that demand some praise, especially for President Donald Trump?
Look at the most recent election where the Democrats wrested control of the House of Representatives from the Republicans. Most all their candidates, with a few “socialist” oriented candidate exceptions, ran a campaign that was basically moderate in tone (many distancing themselves from Nancy Pelosi and the extreme leftward tilt of the established Democrat Party). So now after the election, these “moderates” fell into line and backed Pelosi for Speaker of the House and many have reverted back to bashing President Trump, 24/7. They
are claiming that they will have one investigation after another in order to possibly tarnish the president enough so that he will not run for re-election or that he will lose in 2020, if he runs, as a result of the constant negativity being heaped upon him by the Democrats and their cohorts in the main stream media. I wonder if this is what the voters who voted to turn the Congress over to the Democrats, really wanted? Many of these successful “moderates” won in districts in 2018 that was won by Trump in 2016, but in 2020 Trump will be heading the ticket so many of them might just get the boot for their anti-Trump rhetoric and actions.
Do we really need anymore verification as to what Sir Walter Scott opined in the Eighteenth Century when he said, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”? I think that many of today's elected politicians will find out that the electorate has finally figured out that they have been deceived by the people they elected to represent them, and come the next election they will meet the same fate as the candidates they beat in the last election due to this “tangled web of deception”.
