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.
The derangement of certain elements in the Democrat party and those who have been drinking their kool aid, are reaching dangerous levels.
The rabble under the radical liberal umbrella want to eradicate the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE), leaving the country vulnerable to drug smugglers, human trafficking, felonious illegals and other nefarious enterprises unchallenged. Their main goal is to confiscate our Constitution, reshape it and replace it with a Marxist line.
The hysterical display of filling the vacating Supreme Court seat rivaled that of the loss in the 2016 presidential election by Hillary Clinton, claiming people will die, no matter who the President chooses. Actually, many lives will be saved.
The battle cry is," It's my body and no one has the right to tell me how to us it." I question this person's ability to make a sound judgement about her body, who puts herself in the position of an unwanted pregnancy. Many of these so called feminists can be described as flakes.
There are exceptions, but they seem to be diminishing in the ranks of the millennials.
It is vital to maintain a Constitutional Supreme Court to interpret law, not to legislate it.
Conservative Commentary by George Giftos
When President Trump says that we should put America First, and that we are an exceptional country, he gets mocked by the lefty loons who are championing Socialism over our free enterprise Capitalist system. Those ignominious ingrates are really preaching that the United States is not exceptional, but that we are just a mediocre nation.
Listen to the feckless Democrats, they are most always seeming to denigrate the American people and our system of government, especially the people who voted for President Trump in 2016. No matter the good policies that President Trump has proposed and put into action, they cry that those policies are wrong for the country. They never want to give him credit for any of the positive things that are happening in our country through his efforts. They are like little children who don't get their way and pout.
If these lefty lunatics loved their country as much as they hate President Trump, there would be no end as to what we could achieve as a country. Imagine all that Trump has accomplished in these almost 3 years as president, even in face of almost total resistance by the Democrats and their lackey's in the “fake news media”? (a Harvard University study determined that over 90% of all news stories, in the main stream media, were negative about Trump).
During his almost 3 years at the helm of our great country, President Trump has presided over the greatest economy in modern times with employment at an all-time high and unemployment at an all-time low. In the past 3 years, we have become energy independent, no longer having to rely on unstable energy producing nations for our energy needs. We have gotten rid of a multitude of onerous business regulations, and our stock markets have been booming ever since his election, reaching all-time highs. In addition, President Trump has struck some really good trade deals with So. Korea, Japan, and he renegotiated a new NAFTA deal with Mexico and Canada (which Nancy Pelosi has not brought up for a vote in the House), how sad that politics takes over from our national interests? He is now having some results with negotiating a trade deal with China, which if it comes to fruition, would be a bonanza for our country. Also, besides the tax cuts that he orchestrated, where most everyone got a tax cut, he has found a way to get funding to build that wall at the southern border. The list of accomplishments of his go on and on, but you'd never know it if you relied on the Democrats and the news reports in the media. All these good things have happened in spite of the resistance of his political enemies.
You hear many of the Democrat candidates for president preaching from the hymnal of Bernie Sanders and the infamous anti-Semitic socialist cabal of the “Squad”, headed up by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in telling us that reality is not reality, but economic gobbledygook. Instead of proving that we are an exceptional country, they want everyone to be mediocre and dependent on an overbearing government bureaucracy, all under the guise of “fairness”, and believe it or not, many people are falling for that “snake oil”. The lefties are promising all kinds of “free stuff” to the naive groups of voters looking for something for nothing, in hopes that they will get their votes. By championing Socialism, the lefty Democrats want to make our country a mediocre country rather than an exceptional one. In the words of that great statesman, Sir Winston Churchill who said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”, he sort of hit the nail on the head. We don't want to become another Venezuela or Cuba.
We should not settle for mediocrity, we should always strive to be exceptional, and with the re-election of Donald Trump in 2020, we will be on our way to fulfilling that claim of being exceptional. Keep America great.

Shouldn't those words in the headline be heeded by Joe Biden and a host of other Democrats, especially Adam Schiff? It's been 3 years of a constant failed barrage of negative claims against President Trump, and still the Democrats won't give up their quest to have President Trump thrown out of office. And now we have Russia 2.0 in the form of an impeachment investigation by the disgruntled Democrats to try to overturn the 2016 election.
The leading Democrat candidate, as of now, Joe Biden, is a gaffe machine unparalleled in American history. He has a difficult time expressing himself in a cogent, factual way that would inspire people to feel confident of his competency to lead our country as president. He seems to have that proverbial foot in his mouth almost every time he speaks on the stump.
It seems that the Democrats are starting to get the jitters in the possibility that Biden might be the Democrat standard bearer in the 2020 election. His “foot in mouth disease” is becoming more evident, week after week. I wouldn't be surprised if Joe Biden will have to drop out for the nomination in the next few months.
Besides his verbal gaffes, Joe Biden is now under scrutiny for his actions as Obama's Vice-President in regards to his son, Hunter Biden, in 2016. It seems that Joe Biden, as Obama's emissary to the Ukraine, went to the Ukraine to deliver a $1 billion loan guarantee to the Ukrainians to help them in their defense of their country from the Russians. At that time, Joe Biden's son, Hunter, was on the Board of Directors of a Ukrainian energy company called Burisma, which was being investigated for corruption by a Ukrainian prosecutor by the name of Viktor Shokin. During this trip to deliver the loan guarantee, Joe Biden contacted Ukrainian high officials in charge and told them that in order to get the $1 billion loan guarantee, they must fire the prosecutor (Shokin) who was investigating his son Hunter and Burisma. According to a bragging session at a meeting at the Council of Foreign Relations in 2018, Joe Biden related the story of his actions in getting the prosecutor fired. Imagine, an official of the U.S. government conducting a shakedown of a foreign country for the benefit of his son who was under investigation? If that isn't a case of “foot in mouth disease”, I don't know what is.
Even though there is a video of Joe Biden making that threat to have the prosecutor fired, the Democrats have been “circling the wagons” in defense of ole Sleepy Joe. It's like they have blinders on and have completely ignored this major gaffe by Joe Biden. He admitted to the shakedown.
In addition, it seems that the Biden nepotism didn't stop in the Ukraine, it rose its ugly head in another situation in China where Hunter Biden, on a trip with his father on Air Force Two, got a sweetheart deal worth $1.5 billion for his investment company. What is ironic is that Hunter Biden had no experience in financial dealings, so why would China give Hunter such a lucrative deal? Could it be because his father was a high ranking U.S. official? And the Democrats have the nerve to continue their vendetta against Trump by claiming that he is the most corrupt president in U.S. history. Maybe they should take the advice that a closed mouth gathers no foot and that they should look in the mirror to see who the real corrupters are?

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.

Conservative Commentary by George Giftos
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.
