Trump vs. Kim Jong Un

Forget about the WWE, if you want a real-time feud these days, just turn on the news and chances are you will hear about the latest war of words between President Trump and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. Both men have very unique, stubborn personalities and this feud will intensify in the upcoming weeks. Unfortunately for this country, it may mean military action against a leader who has basically stuck his middle finger out against the world. Finally, there is a leader who is willing to stand up to him and how this feud will end is anyone’s guess. One thing is for certain, Kim Jong Un is a very dangerous man and the world might be a better place without him in power.

One of the scary things about this whole story is the fact that some nut case like Kim Jong Un has the capability to have nuclear weapons and this fact should send shivers to anyone living in this country or any ally of the United States. There are probably several other rogue leaders who would not think twice about sending some missile our way which could cause massive casualties. The fact that leaders of these rogue nations have that capability is very concerning to say the least. In the near future, those capabilities will only get stronger as well as our risk of being attacked.

Some people claim that President Trump should tone down his rhetoric towards North Korea and Kim Jong Un. I completely disagree. It is refreshing to finally see our President take a harsh stand against one of our biggest enemies. A strong leader will stand up for us and our allies when some head case wants to do harm to innocent people. Why people are outraged over his statements is simply appalling. Leading from the front is what we should expect from our nation. Former President Ronald Reagan was the same way. He was not afraid to confront our enemies and our country was safer because of it.

I also find it ridiculous to be extremely concerned whether Trump has the mental capacity to handle this foreign crisis. Not only does he, but his team of advisors is very experienced and knowledgeable in foreign affairs. I have the utmost confidence in this group of people in making good and wise decisions in the best interests of the nation and world.

North Korea and Kim Jong Un has been a problem for far too long and it is time for him to face the music. We cannot tolerate his evil and disrespectful ways any longer. I have to give the Trump administration credit for trying to do a job other administrations have by-passed. North Korea is a problem that has to be dealt with now before it is too late.

Those Trump tweets

Unless you have been in a terrible coma for the past couple of years, you might have noticed that our newly elected president loves to tweet. President Barack Obama had a Twitter account, but the frequency of his tweets paled in comparison to President Trump. The question I have is this; is it a good idea for a President or any politician to engage heavily on Twitter? There are varying opinions on this topic and I will share a few myself.

Part of being a good politician is getting your message out to the public. With so many people using Twitter these days, you would think that it would be wise for a lawmaker to use Twitter to persuade the public on a particular issue. For example, a lawmaker can make a short, but very compelling case on why we need to repeal Obamacare. An account with Trump’s popular can reach millions of people with just a quick send button.

On the other hand, I find it rather difficult to articulate a view with only 140 characters allowed. Sure you can send multiple tweets on a particular topic, but I find it very hard to uphold any type of good conversation when I am limited. Perhaps a blog post might be a better idea for the President. On top of that, Twitter is filled with a bunch of wackos who will not think twice about sending you some mean and ignorant tweets. I would think that the President has better things to do with his time than getting involved in a Twitter war.

It is no secret that many media figures do not like President Trump and will do anything to discredit his achievements. Having the option to reply back at his critics is a wonderful way for him to use Twitter and you might say, set the record straight. Yes, there are times when I think Trump should be above some of the cheap shots that delivered to him, but I admire him for fighting back at some of ridiculous things that are said and written about him.

Having said all these things, I do think eventually that his Twitter use could get him in deep trouble some day. And that goes for any politician who uses Twitter regularly. Anyone who uses Twitter probably has had those moments where you send a tweet that you wish you had not. Many famous athletes and politicians have gotten into huge trouble from what they have said on Twitter. Furthermore, I would expect my President to show some class in his or her tweets instead of sending juvenile tweets about how stupid a certain news anchor might be or how fat a celebrity critic of his may be. You are expected to uphold the office with some dignity and some of Trumps tweets have crossed the line, no doubt about it.

President Trump’s twitter account is one of many politicians that I follow from both sides. I think it is a very useful tool that can help him out in achieving his agenda. How there is a great risk involved and hopefully President Trump will be wise enough to understand that there are many vultures out there just waiting for him to send that one regrettable tweet.

Much hype, little drama over the Comey testimony

It was the testimony that everyone was waiting for especially those many Trump haters. The recently fired FBI director James Comey was set to give his testimony before a Senate Intelligence Committee. Could this be the moment when President Trump is exposed for several wrong doings? Cable news stations had countdown clocks in anticipation of probably the biggest high-profile testimony of any government official in many years. Millions skipped work and crowded local bars for this event of a lifetime. In the end, I think many regretted skipping work. The testimony revealed little that we had not already known.

There is little doubt in my mind that many media outlets came out of this hearing rather disappointed. They were banking on seeing some explosive testimony indicting Trump. Imagine if that had occurred? CNN, The New York Times and the Washington Post would have a field day. It would further vindicate their claims that this election was not a legitimate one and Trump has no business being the President of this country. The same can be said of the many folks in this country affected with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). A damning testimony by Comey could have further enhanced their claims that the election was rigged.

Unfortunately for these folks, nothing that was revealed really hurt President Trump. In fact, this testimony may eventually come back to haunt a few Democrats and Comey instead. His admission that he leaked important information could lead to his own investigation. Furthermore, the former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch’s request to downplay the handling of Hillary Clinton’s alleged dealings with classified information seems to fall in line with what Trump was requesting for Michael Flynn. How can you in good faith investigate the dealings of Trump and Flynn without equally pursuing any ties between Lynch and the Clinton campaign? It seems to me that this hearing opened up a whole new can or worms that anti-Trump fans did not bargain for. Why the double standards?

Just maybe in the near future, this ridiculous notion that the Russians colluded with President Trump to helped him win the election will go away and Trump can proceed with his agenda for helping this country. There is absolutely no evidence at this time that any collusion took place. It is time to move on and maybe this hearing will eliminate any doubts that some people may have. However, I highly doubt it. Talk of Russia and Trump colluding in this election will be a topic that will never go away. Trump won the election fair and square. I hope people will finally accept that fact some day.

Calling out Kathy Griffin and Hillary Clinton.

A couple of left leaning women garnered lots of attention in the news last week. Prior to last week, I knew little about Kathy Griffin other than seeing her on CNN a few times. After last week, I believe I have seen and heard all that I want from this idiot. I have known about Hillary Clinton for decades and her excuse tour last week only cemented my very negative views about her. Maybe we can learn a lot from the actions of these two women and what liberalism is all about.

Griffin got a lot of heat for holding a fake decapitated head of President Trump in a photo. It was a totally tasteless act and she deserved every ounce of criticism that she received. I don’t care who the President is, Democrat or Republican, that totally crosses the line of decency. She apologized a few days later and I thought that was the end of that rather disturbing story. Well was I ever wrong! Griffin held a press conference yesterday in which she suddenly declared herself a victim in all of this. Apparently, she feels the Trumps and “old white men” (some will say this blogger is one of them) are out to get her. This prank¬† comes out of the playbook of liberalism.¬† Everyone is a victim of some sort. You can commit the biggest crime ever but you did it because you are a victim of society. Instead of just letting this controversy go, she continues to build a deeper hole for herself. There are indeed consequences for foolish actions and Griffin apparently fails to understand that simple fact of life.

Just when you thought Hillary Clinton would never be in the political spotlight again, she appears as a guest on a few shows and talks about how she lost the election. The excuses she used were many and varied. Like Griffin, Clinton also seemed to think that she was a victim as well. Heavens forbid she would ever take personal responsibility for losing the election. She blamed others for her failures. That is another thing that liberals do. They like to blame others for their failures.

I would suggest that both Clinton and Griffin buy a mirror someday. They do not cost that much. Look into that mirror and maybe you will both see the real problem. These women apparently do not know the meaning of taking personal responsibility for their actions. But should that surprise you when you are dealing with radical liberals like these two women?

The sky is falling after the Paris accord withdrawal

In the aftermath of President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, you would be led to believe that the end of civilization is just a few years away. Many have come out on social media declaring this decision will have dire consequences in the future. The Governor of California even went as far as saying that people will die. How can the United States be so cruel and stupid? Several Hollywood celebrities have gone on record condemning this act as well, but it has not stopped them from hopping in their expensive jets or gas guzzling cars.

I have a few things to say to all you climate change alarmists who are predicting doom and gloom for the world in a few short years. Please relax and take a chill pill! Pulling out of this deal might actually be a very wise decision. The cost of staying in this deal is not something this country can afford. It is far too costly and would severely ruin our economy. It is estimated that about 2.7 million jobs would be lost due to this agreement. Don’t get me wrong, I think controlling pollution is an important topic that all countries should talk about, but is there a way that we can balance our economy and making sure we have clean energy in the process? This Paris accord agreement appears to have far too many question marks for the United States to continue with. We need to come up with a better solution that will not bankrupt our nation.

We have lots of natural resources at our disposal that could our nation the leader in clean energy technology. Many good private companies could start up and produce many good paying jobs. Perhaps we should as a nation start concentrating on using our resources instead of worrying about some costly multi-nation agreement.

One of my biggest gripes with the climate change disciples is their constant insistence that man can control the temperature of the earth and the weather. I strongly disagree. Anyone who thinks man can control and stop the earth from getting a few degrees warmer is highly delusional. Many of these countries who are part of this Paris agreement seem to think we can. Our President does not see it that way and perhaps in the long run, it might be one of his best decisions ever while being in office. Furthermore, are there not more important things for the world to worry about than climate change? Why not have multi-nation pact on fighting terrorism instead? Spending billions of dollars to try and fight something that only nature can control seems to be rather foolish in my eyes.

The epidemic of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome)

It may be your neighbor or perhaps a co-worker, family or very close friend. Maybe you have a Facebook friend or friends who constantly post negative stuff about President Trump. Chances are that you know someone who is quickly becoming affected by this fast sweeping epidemic. It is known as TDS or “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and thousands of people are falling to this mental condition.

Main symptoms include an obsession with wanting our newly elected president removed from office as quickly as possible. You suddenly have this urge to spread your hatred of Trump to others through social media posts on Facebook or Twitter. Never mind that there is very little evidence that Russia helped Trump win the election. You will post and share anything you find fact or fiction. Watching CNN becomes a high priority throughout the day. They are now reporting that President Trump falsely lied about what he had for dinner last night to a curious reporter. Oh the nerve of that guy! He must be, no don’t say it, impeached? Yes, when people start calling for impeachment, such as several idiot politicians have done in the past several days, you know they are in advanced stages of this horrible disease.

With most terrible diseases, there has to be a source which it originates from. Could it possibly be from Trump himself? Does his egotistical, brash nature add to people’s hatred towards him? That could very well be true. The fact that he is a Republican to boot only adds to the hysteria. But I believe the media in this country is more than responsible for creating this derangement syndrome of our newly elected president. I have never seen a president so mistreated by the media in all my days on this earth. It is no secret that many journalists absolutely hate the guy and will do anything in their power to get him removed from office. Log onto many news sites on the internet and you are bound to new a negative story about the president. The positive stories about him get shoved under the rug. It is incredibly biased reporting that only adds fuel to people’s rage.

I have a few questions for those Trump haters who have this disease. If you succeed in pushing Trump out the door, will you be fine with Mike Pence as our president? Or will this start all over again? Sadly, I find many of these outspoken Trump critics surprisingly quiet during the 8 year reign of President Obama. Why? Once again, is it the fact that we have a Republican president now?

Whether this epidemic of hate towards our new president will succeed anytime soon is anyone’s guess. It is highly unlikely that this newly appointed special counsel will find any collusion with Trump’s campaign and Russia. Then what? Will the haters find something else about Trump? In all likelihood, yes, they will. Hopefully those with this condition will get over it fast before they go to their early graves. Instead of spewing so much hate towards Trump, use the same energy to find a candidate that can actually beat him. No, Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are not the answers! The best cure is finding a strong candidate who can actually beat Mr. Trump and watching him go down on election day 2020. Until then, the derangement will never end until Trump is out of office. My recommendation for those affected with this disease is chill out, relax and wait until 2020. Life is way too short to lose your mind over some politician or president.

A few thoughts on President Trump’s first 100 days in office

Yesterday marked the 100 day anniversary of President Trump’s first term in office. Political pundits everywhere are talking at great lengths about what he has accomplished and what he has failed to do. Some have even gone as far as saying that his presidency is a failed one so far. As one of many registered voters, I would like to weigh in on what I have seen so far from the administration.

First of all, the 100 day mark is far too short of a time period to judge a president. Political experts are saying that he has no major pieces of legislation passed during his first 100 days and therefore his term has been a failure so far. That is complete and utter nonsense! Repealing and replacing the health care law is a long process that requires more time. Expecting this to be done in the first 100 days is being very delusional. The same goes with coming up with immigration reform as well as tax reform. I would rather see these important issues be dealt with in a timely and well thought out process rather than hastily done. One could argue that the travel ban was one of the biggest failures of the Trump presidency so far and that appeared to be rather quickly put together. Perhaps too quickly.

I like many of the things that he has done already with executive orders doing away with many of the needless regulations that seem to be hurting economic growth in this country. He seems to be very committed in keeping jobs in this country and you have to give him credit for that. I really like the initial reports of his tax plan which can only help our economy grow. Finally we seem to have a politician who gets it when it comes to taxes unlike many of today’s Democrats. He seems to be making waves in cracking down on illegal immigration and he will not let our country be pushed around overseas. I greatly love that he is sending a few messages to foreign leaders that there is a new sheriff in town.

Having said those things, there are a few things about his presidency so far that really concern me and much of it really has nothing to do with him. It is his opposition and a lot of that opposition comes from his own party. His party controls both the House and Senate, therefore, you would think that he would not have any problems passing major legislation, but that is not the case. If he cannot garner enough support from his own party, then he will have a tough time passing anything. It appears the Democratic party is hell-bent on resisting any type of legislation that Trump comes up with. One has to wonder if he will ever get any type of bi-partisan support at all. It is unfortunate that Democratic members of the House and Senate seem to be more interested in making Trump look bad than helping the American people. Come election time, people will not forget! And let us not forget the regular mainstream media who has taken journalism to a new low. Some of their criticism of Trump is valid, but much of it is not. Some members of the press seem to be on some sort of mission to knock Trump out of office. That is one of the things that I have really noticed in his first 100 days and this will probably continue for the unforeseeable future.

All and all, I think Trump will get better and pass more legislation in the next year or so. His popularity should grown if the economy starts to take off and people are making more money. Maybe then, that huge opposition to Trump will decline a bit. But until then, Trump seems to have a rather uphill battle in his presidency that the first 100 days really illustrates. As his boss, yes he works for us, I expect more in the future and also I expect more cooperation from Congress in helping him make us a better country. It is only fair at this point to give him more time. I rate his performance so far to be slightly above average.
