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.
Hatred is an emotion that can make formerly sane people, insane. Ever since Donald Trump was elected, hate has consumed the minds of formerly rational people, which includes both Democrats and some Republicans (RINO's).
Never in my long life, have I seen such vitriol directed at a sitting president, mostly phony and unwarranted. From day one, Trump's political enemies have tried to undermine his Presidency, starting with a bogus charge accusing him of colluding with the Russians, leading up to the 2016 election. It took 2 ½ years and $30 million to put that phony accusation to rest, despite going up against a “stacked deck” of anti-Trump lawyers on Robert Mueller's investigative team.
Next on the vindictive Democrat agenda, after the Mueller probe fizzled out, was the phony impeachment exercise accusing Trump of colluding with the Ukrainian president. Once again, Trump was cleared by the Senate, turning down the overly partisan House impeachment resolution.
Now, as we approach the Presidential election of 2020, we have the Democrats nominating a ticket of two, far left of center party hacks, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. So far, their only platform seems to be “Vote for us, Biden/Harris” and not for the “evil” Trump/Pence ticket. After bashing Trump during the recent Democratic National Convention, the two Democrat candidates proclaimed that they want to complete the failed Obama Administration attempt at “Transforming America”. What is the Biden/Harris team proposing to make the United States “better”. Here's a list:
These Democratic proposals would decimate our economy and further perpetuate the havoc and destruction now being played out across the country in Democrat controlled cities and states. Weak, Democratic 'leadership' has turned a blind eye to the riots and attacks committed by the domestic terrorist organizations of ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. (BLM). Are these proposals that you favor?
How can supposedly sane people support and encourage the flawed, Democratic ticket of Biden/Harris, simply because they hold a personal, misguided hatred towards Donald Trump? It's like “cutting off your nose to spite your face”. Should we conveniently disregard the numerous accomplishments of President Trump and his administration simply because his personality, demeanor, or tweets may sometimes rub us the wrong way? Ask yourself, "What has Biden accomplished during his time in public office?"
Hatred must be rejected and common sense must be injected back into our political arena. Vote to “Make America Great Again” and not imitate the failed Marxist/Socialist nation states of Cuba and Venezuela. Your vote should go to the Trump/Pence ticket for the good of our country and all Americans.

And NOW, it Begins!
Selective journalism can no longer ignore facts exposed by the Liberals’ dreaded nemesis, Fox News. The new sheriff in town has begun the long awaited cleanup of the messes left by previous administrations, revealing a subversion to contaminate the system we inherited from our forefathers. Hopefully, the injustices have reached a climax with Obama’s attempts to change the face of America with deception, taking control of entities meant for the safety and security of its people, for nefarious uses in a power grab. The rule of law stands in the way of the Democrats agenda, exempting them from following it as the rest of us do. With declassification and release of pertinent documents, there is a crack in the dam that is starting to spew the names of the bad actors involved in this drama.
The usual Liberal media facets will try to defame the White Hats, Attorney General Bill Barr and Attorney John Durham, who are working to right the wrong, with prosecutorial power against the plotters involved in this scheme to depose President Donald Trump, a plot that can be regarded as an act of treason. When Senator Lindsey Graham’s judiciary committee opens hearings on the Democrats’ Russia collusion hoax, it is going to be a “Bad Day at Swampville!”

Well, the waiting is over, Joe Biden (or the Democrat insiders) has chosen Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. The question is, will she enhance the Biden ticket or will she be a dud and flame out like she did during the Democrat primary?
During the primary, Harris started off with a bang with an estimated 20,000 people rally in her hometown of Oakland, California. But, as it turned out, it was just a flash in the pan introduction that went downhill from there. As our headline implies, Kamala Harris has a lot baggage to haul around as a campaigner for Vice-President on the Joe Biden ticket. Let's see how she has gotten to the position that she finds herself today, and what is in the baggage she is carrying around.
For starters, she was a protege of former San Francisco Mayor and Speaker of the California Assembly, Willie Brown, who was also known as her paramour as she advanced up the political ladder in California. She began her career as a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, California where she met Willie Brown.
Subsequently, Harris became part of the San Francisco Attorney's Division of Families and Children. In 2003, she was elected as District Attorney of San Francisco. She held that office till 2011.
From there, she was elected to be Attorney General of California. Harris held that position from 2012 to 2017. In 2016, she ran for the U.S. Senate seat of Barbara Boxer who stepped down. She was then elected as the junior senator of California from 2017 to the present.
Her position of senator, in the largest state in the union, catapulted Harris into throwing her hat into the ring to become the Democrat nominee for President in 2020. Her major attraction as a candidate is that she is a minority woman (she's half Asian and black) which today seems to be a plus in our race conscious society. However, after an early rush of enthusiasm, Harris' presidential campaign petered out as she couldn't last in the primary field to make it to her own state's primary.
She had few moments of fame in one of the debates when she went after (her now running mate) by implying that Biden was racist, accusing him of being pals with segregationist fellow senators and opposing busing of minority school children. As a counter to her rant, fellow candidate, Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, accused Kamala Harris of being overly harsh on certain criminals while she was Attorney General. From there it was downhill for her campaign. She was only able to get 2% of the delegates which placed her 8th in the field of candidates.
In addition, her theatrics during the confirmation hearing of of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, brought many negative comments about how she used her law enforcement legal skills in her interrogation of Judge Kavanaugh. Harris sided with Kavanaugh's accuser before all the facts were revealed, and which later on, the accusers' account was discredited by most people as being untrustworthy. Harris also, during an interview with a talk show host, laughed about her using marijuana, when she was accused by her critics of being overly tough on marijuana users in her capacity as Attorney General. She was accused of being a hypocrite and a phony.
Harris' record in the U.S. Senate has been rated as being the most liberal senator of the 100 senators, which sort of challenges her claim of being a moderate. Her positions on the following issues, such as: being a sponsor of the Green New Deal, her being in favor of “Sanctuary Cities”, her being in favor of giving illegal aliens health care and citizenship, she supports Bernie's “Medicare for All”, she'd like to “Defund” the police, her support of late term abortion, and her favoring of getting rid of the Trump tax cuts, are all policies that create a lot of the baggage that she carries with her as a Vice- President nominee. Along with the change of policy positions of Joe Biden, as he tries to win over the Bernie Sanders supporters, she compliments him as being a far-left “Progressive”, instead of being the moderate that her friends in the media are trying to convince us into thinking she is.
So, in conclusion, we won't know if the baggage Kamala Harris brings to the Biden ticket will either help or hurt them until we find out on election day. I say it doesn't really matter as I think President Trump will win in a landslide come November regardless.

The term “Useful Idiot” (as defined by Merriam-Webster) is: “A naive or credulous person who can be manipulated or exploited to advance a cause or political agenda”. The term was popularized by Communist Vladimir Lenin back during the Russian Revolution. In using the term “Useful Idiot” in reference to Joe Biden, it can be justified by his “waffling” on issues in trying to appease the left-wing members of the Democrat Party.
Joe Biden wants us to believe that he is a “moderate” and not an extremist, but when he entered into a compact with Socialist Bernie Sanders and the “Squad”, he has lost all claim to being called a moderate. He is now a full-blown adherent to the socialist wing of the Democrat Party. Even Comrade Bernie Sanders has proclaimed that if Joe Biden wins the presidency, he will become the most “Progressive” president since President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In other words, if Biden looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, he must be duck (in this case a card-carrying Marxist/Socialist).
Joe Biden has been a professional politician for 48 years, in many different offices over that period of time. You'd think that in all that time he would've racked up a record of accomplishments. But, what has been his accomplishments over that period of time? When average people are asked the question, “What accomplishments is Joe Biden noted for”, the answers are, “He's a nice man”, “He was Obama's Vice-President”, and that's it. His record of accomplishment are practically zero, and his positions on many issues have changed dramatically over the years. You could say he stands for “whatever and wherever the wind blows”.
Besides changing his views on abortion (as a Catholic he was once opposed, now he favors it up to breech); he's become a critic of the police and would like to see funding for the police re-directed to liberal social programs; he wants to rescind the Trump tax cuts and wants to restore onerous government regulations; and he now favors instituting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez', “Green New Deal” (a budget buster if there ever was one); he's for open borders and a path to citizenship, free medical, and free college to illegal aliens and he is in favor of “sanctuary cities”. Yes, his views have changed as he tries to appease the Bernie voters. In other words, he has no principal positions on issues except what might win him votes.
In addition, Joe Biden, at 77 years of age, has shown a tendency to have a cognitive problem in being able to express himself in a cogent manner, and he has a tendency to make noticeable “gaffes” on a regular basis. That's one of the reasons why his handlers are keeping him holed up in his basement in Delaware. He also has avoided any meaningful interaction with the press. How long he can keep continuing doing that is anybody's guess?
The choice between Joe Biden and President Trump couldn't be more clear. Should we go back to the disastrous economic Obama years of mediocre growth, or should we continue with the Trump positive growth policies that Trump brought us before the China virus caused havoc to our economy. Do you really think the socialist policies espoused by Joe Biden will get us out of the economic malaise that the China virus has caused us, or do you think that Trump would be the better overseer of the recovery by using his proven business acumen?
It is quite obvious that Joe Biden is being used and manipulated by the loony left, and yes, he has become their “Useful Idiot”.

It has been reported that many people want to vote against President Trump (instead of just voting for Joe Biden), because they don't like his personality, but they must ask themselves, which affects them more in life, his personality or their pocketbook? I can't believe that the voters would be so dense as to “cut off their noses to spite their faces”, because that's what they would be doing if that thought carried the day.
Nobody is perfect, even the President of the United States. President Trump is not the smoothest, most tactful person in expressing himself, but should that take precedence over his policies that, by all objective people, have been beneficial to most people in the United States.
The phrase, that is taken from the Gospel of John in the bible of “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone”, might be applied to the people who are obsessed with the personality and character of Donald Trump. The bible states that we are all sinners and that only those who are faultless have the right to pass judgment on others. Since no one is faultless, they can't pass judgment on President Trump. It does not mean that you have to approve of him, his lifestyle, in the past or in the present, but when judging a leader, more than personality or demeanor should be considered in deciding if that person is doing a competent job in performing his duties as president.
The question this November is whether or not President Trump's job performance should be rewarded by re-electing him back for a second term. The choice between President Trump and Joe Biden is quite easy to discern, do you want continued economic success or do you want the government to be the major force in our lives?
During his first three years, President Trump presided over the best economy in modern history, but then the China virus hit us like a sledge hammer and we had to shut down our booming economy to combat this plague. We are now trying to bring our economy back to where it was before the China virus hit us. The Democrats seem hellbent on taking the road that they should do all that they can to keep things from succeeding so that it hurts Trump's chances for re-election, so that they can reclaim control of the government. It seems politics takes precedence over our economy and citizen well-being. I don't think the majority of voters will use personal animus against Trump, as their 401K goes into the dumper.
Voters - use your head not your emotions - you and your family deserve a strong economy not a Marxist/Socialist disaster like we see in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. Remember, as Bill Clinton's surrogate, James Carville, once stated, “It's the economy, stupid”. Keep that in mind when casting your ballot for president. KEEP AMERICA GREAT – VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP for re-election.

CNN and MSNBC are two single dimensional cable outlets praising the progressive message that is the foundation of the Democrat philosophy, mutating into socialism. If you tune in for honest news and commentary, you will instead get a monotone chorus of Trump haters, spewing ridiculous accusations and innuendo.
Their sparse viewership has been reduced to hard-nosed liberal loyalists, and the Trump haters needing to refuel their narrative of fading lies. They are sworn by a code of honor, never to watch the Fox News Channel, because it is a multi-dimensional service, with a hint of conservatism, providing a variety of viewpoints from a mixed pallet of contributors and hosts, many of whom are old school Democrats, like Chris Wallace, Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Howie Kurtz, Jessica Tarlov, Donna Brazille and dozens of others who offer their opinions contrary to the Republican dogma and Trump policies.
There is no depth to a one dimension picture.
