Attacks on Trump Continue

If you are like me, then you were extremely frustrated this morning when the announcement came about President Trump's taxes. A judge, appointed by Bill Clinton, ruled that Trump has to turn over his tax returns to a New York DA. Consequently, that DA is another Democrat. The order covers taxes back to 2011.   The IRS has already stated that Democrats are trying to weaponize Trump's tax returns.  I have to say, I agree with the IRS and many other assessments.  It merely seems like the Democrats are trying to attack Trump on any point they can muster up even down to his tax returns. 

Naturally, Trump's lawyers are already in the process of filing an appeal to the recent "Democrat Motivated" move to obtain tax returns.  Democrat's failed in Congress to get the returns, so they have targetted two states - New York and California.  California actually passed an unconstitutional law that requires a Presidential candidate to release his tax returns.  Notice what I said there by the way, "Unconstitutional."  Nowhere in any law is a presidential candidate, much less a candidate for any office, required to release his or her tax returns.  Democrats simply hope to find some error, some mistake, or maybe the fact is that Trump had so many business deductions he paid low taxes.  

Consider this for a moment - what if the Democrats do get Trump's returns? Maybe he did pay low taxes, or there is some other mistake in those tax documents. What does it all mean? It's simple; it means that there was a failure and someone failed?   When you're a billionaire, you usually don't sit down at the table and complete your tax returns on April 14 and run to the post office and get them off to the IRS.  When you are a billionaire, you have tax information all year long.  Before Trump was President, that is precisely what he was doing - running businesses.  So, he was not the guy sweating at 7:15 p.m. on April 14, trying to finish his taxes.  So if there is a mistake in Trump's taxes, who do you think is to blame?  Well, here's a list for you:
1.  The office staff handling the return information such as deductions, cost, and income.  
2. The accounting firm handling Trump's taxes would be the first to make a mistake.
3.  The state income tax in New York or whatever state the business files in would be liable for an error they failed to catch. 
4.  The IRS - they reviewed, stamped, and accepted the returns.  If they had a problem with them, then they would initiate a review or audit - otherwise, they are accepted and not even considered after seven years.

Even if by some Democrat, Magical Blessing, Democrats do obtain Trump's tax returns, it is highly unlikely that any mistake made would be directly attributed to him.  He pays people to handle this daily, and those people are professionals with liability insurance - yes, insurance to cover if THEY make a mistake.  Whether you like Trump or not, he is a billionaire, and like others in business and money, he has precautions in place.  Again, he is simply not the guy sitting at the table on April 14, trying to get that envelop to the post office.  Any review of Trump's taxes and any mistakes which may be found is ultimately going to show that someone made a mistake. It will show that either an employee, accountant, state employee, or a federal employee made that mistake.  It is not going to be an error that Trump personally made so the Democrats could plaster it all over their campaign posters.  I guess you do have to applaud the Democrats for trying...after all, none of their other lies about Trump are being bought by the American people.

Congressional Democrats Continue to Get NOTHING and Do NOTHING

There is an ancient saying... "Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice shame on me," and the Democrats simply do not get it.  They have collectively allowed, if not outright encouraged, President Trump to make them look like fools on several occasions. Now the Democrats have decided to continue this foolish path with impeachment proceedings. 

Consider the Democrat Machine's history to this point:
  1.  They yelled before Trump could even be sworn in that he had ties to Russia and was conducting business with Russia.  They yelled this even as he was stepping down from his companies to work as the President, but they still yelled about his worldwide business and NOTHING came from it.

2.  They conjured up a porn star to say she was paid to keep her mouth shut about sexual relationships with Trump.  The case was dismissed, and in fact, the judge ruled that the porn star and her lawyer had to pay Trump's legal fees.   While we would like to say NOTHING came of this, the fact is Trump's legal costs were covered - finally, the Democrats had some success!  Later the lawyer was arrested, and it has since been reported in some circles that the porn star was lying.

3. They attempted to block Trump's Supreme Court Nomination by having a woman come up to testify - you know because she is so brave now 30 years later - about a sexual encounter where the future judge forced himself on her in a sexual nature - 30 years ago, at a party, located someplace, somewhere, on some date, that nobody could seem to remember the exact details including this woman.  The woman was surprisingly able to pay off her new beach home, disappeared after testifying and was hailed as a "Hero" by Democrats - not sure what their definition of a hero is at this point BTW.   In the end, there was NOTHING for them to use.   Even now, there are reports it was all a lie -you know, from someday, somewhere, someplace, at some point in the past - but who the heck knows for sure!

 4.  They then continued their Russia Collusion claims and tried to show how the President allegedly cooperated with Russia to work on winning the elections.  Naturally, they never mentioned the various ties that Hillary Clinton had to Russia - not as a businesswoman, but as the Secretary of State of the United States, a former member of Congress, and a former first lady of the United States - no, somehow all of that was ignored only to have a report that showed Trump had NOTHING to do with Russia during the elections.

5.  Then the Democrats attempted to use their power in Congress to get Trump's tax returns.  It was a move that even the IRS said was politically motivated when they said that they would not allow a citizen's tax returns to be "weaponized."  They filed and pushed, and in the end, Democrats got NOTHING to this day.

6.  Democrats then turned to states and local cities where they had friends and pushed to get rules to where President Trump had to release his tax returns to them or in some places he could not be on the ballot without releasing his tax returns.  Federal courts continue to strike that purely political move down and again the Democrats get NOTHING.

7.  Now Democrats are yelling for impeachment.  They are not only citing the old, disproven information again - cause apparently, they do not understand when you have NOTHING that you have "NOTHING."   So impeachment is going to proceed with full Democrat support and what are they going to get?  NOTHING.  The push will not make it through the Senate, and once again Democrats will be left with egg on their face for their futile, waste of time.

While it is easy to dismiss and laugh at all the complete failures of the Democrat Party to attack Trump, it equally disturbing.  Since before Trump took office, Democrats have worked, tried to pull strings, pushed for outside help, and done everything in their power to discredit and now they are pushing to remove the lawfully elected President of the United States.  They want to remove him, not because he has done anything illegal or wrong, but because they don't like him.   The Democrat dislike for the President is so severe for one reason and one reason only - he is doing precisely what he said he would do for the nation, and he can not be bought.  They can not walk into the President's office and buy him.  Democrats simply do not like that.

They have attacked the President and his supporters and gotten NOTHING.

They have slandered the President and his supporters and gotten NOTHING.

They have used their positions to attack the President and his supporters and got NOTHING.

They have used their supporters and friends to attack the President and their supporters, and they have gotten NOTHING. 

The sad thing is we have allowed the Democrats in Congress to receive a yearly salary for nearly four years now to do NOTHING except attack a President with baseless lies and false accusations.  The people in those districts represented by Democrats should think long and hard the next time they go to the polls. While these Democrats have focussed on Trump, they have completed neglected the people who elected them, and that is the ultimate shame in all this fiasco.

Beto O'Rourke Masters "Flip-Flop Magic"

Beto O’Rourke shared his "Flip-Flop Magic" with America last night. You know the type of magic that can have a person saying one thing one day and the complete opposite the next day? Yeah, that's "Flip-Flop Magic."

In 2018, Beto sounded like the Democrats of old - you know the ones with the"Put a man on the moon," and "We'll die with our guns in our hands" type of Democrat that many of us grew up around. These Democrats often were in close alignment with Republicans on many issues. It made it easy for us to all come to the table, discuss issues and compromise, develop policies, and move America forward. In those glory days- that's what I'll call them - of our Democrat friends, these words by Beto should not only sound familiar, but they should stir you:

“Well, to be clear, they should have them. If you purchased that AR-15, if you own it, keep it. Continue to use it responsibly,” said O’Rourke. “I think Texas has a real opportunity to lead on this issue right now because we so jealously guard that Second Amendment. We believe in it. We’ll defend it.” - Beto O'Rouke on “The Chad Hasty Show” April 2018

Beto actually looks like an American there, doesn't he? Well, that all changed last night. Whether Beto was playing to a specific audience, trying to sound tough on guns, or just showing off his "Flip-Flop Magic" abilities, he suddenly seemed like a Socialist Dictator from some third world country trying to impress himself and elevate himself as the top ruler, lawgiver, and enforcer for the entire nation. Beto's "Flip-Flop Magic" became glaringly apparent as he told a story about children being killed by AR-15's and then made the following statement:

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” - Beto O'Rourke Third Democrat Debates 9-2019

No, you are not reading that wrong. "Flip-Flop Magic" Beto O'Rourke has gone from respecting law-abiding gun owners to outright screaming curse words and telling America on live television that if elected, he will - note this is not he might, he might ask you, he might ask you to give it up - no, he is "GOING TO TAKE YOUR AR-15, YOUR AK-47". This is not a debate, it's not a discussion, it's not a "We'll negotiate." No, this is an outright declaration that if elected President of the United States, he will throw the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights out the window and take your guns.

To my Democrat friends - is this the type of candidate you want to support? Do you want someone who will take your guns? Maybe you don't have an AR-15 or an AK-47. Perhaps you just have a hunting rifle or a handgun or a shotgun. I mean surely he did not mean he would take those too, did he? I mean if a person will take one gun away from you, what would stop him from taking another firearm away from you? What would stop him from suddenly deciding that since we don't need the Second Amendment, we really don't need the First, Third, Fourth and so on - after all, wouldn't "illegal search and seizure" need to be tossed out too so that he could take your guns? Wouldn't the "freedom of speech" need to be removed so he could keep you silent about his actions? Do you really think Beto would stop with just two types of guns? Do you think he would finish with only one set of your rights?

Well, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe Beto doesn't have that "Flip-Flop Magic" going. Perhaps he is just blowing smoke as he screams and yells his plans to a cheering audience. I mean, it's not like anyone else in history has ever screamed, yelled, listened to the cheering crowds and then removed guns, rights and eventually lives that interfered with his plans, right? ...

2020 Elections: A Time to Stand

You are not alone!
Elections 2020 will be here before we know it and politicians from all major parties will be mailing flyers, doing interviews, campaigning in their areas, and promoting their agendas for the next few years after they are elected.   Politics in America has always been a wild ride, but for Republicans, it is about to get not only wild but potentially dangerous.  The fact is, as Republicans, we face an election year where Democrats really have nothing to stand on for election or reelection.  They have spent four years chasing a President with porn stars, and "Russian Collusion" only to have it all blow up in their face.  They have spent four years as virtually a "Do Nothing other than chase Trump" party.  Now it's election time, and they have nothing to run on as a platform.  Since they have nothing, they will do the next best thing they can think of to do...they will stand on and attack you.

This election season will be like none before.  Because opponents of the President have nothing, they are going to intensify their attacks on his supporters.  Let's face it, nothing phases President Trump.  They call him names, he just strikes back on Twitter.  They say he is a traitor, he just calls them out for their failures in their own districts.  They attack him and Israel, and he tells them to go home.  To be straightforward, not only is President Trump blunt, but he doesn't care what the opposition does or thinks about him.  Because President Trump is unlike any other President in the history of the United States, the Democrats simply do not know how to handle him and his supporters.  In the end, they resort to the only thing they can cling to against Trump and Republicans.  They resort to name-calling, threatening, yelling, vandalism, and even physical violence.  Democrats have decided to take their own history (racism, segregation, buying votes, etc.) and turn it against Republicans.  A necessary playbook call is to "Accuse others of that which you yourself are guilty of doing," and the Democrats have mastered this playbook.  So, this election will be like none before. 

What can you expect?  You can expect it is going to get worse before it gets better.  Do not be surprised if when you put out your Republican signs out,  bumper stickers on cars, or wear your MAGA hats if any of the following does not happen to you:
 You will be called a racist - regardless of your heritage, you are a racist according to Democrats.
 You will have your yard signs removed - they will steal them, even as you watch.
 You may have your car keyed or damaged or your stickers removed.
 You may be harassed if you wear a Trump hat, shirt, button, etc. and it will be harsh verbally.
 You may be called many other names such as "Nazi," "Fascist" "Traitor," and others.
 You may, as horrible as it is, be attacked physically for your Republican support. 
 Your headquarters may be attacked through vandalism or some other means.

The fact is, this election season the Republican voter is going to be singled out.  The Democrats and their liberal supporters are going to try to scare you, intimidate you, threaten you, and do whatever it takes to get you to shut up and hide.  That is what they want.  They want Republicans to hide away, say nothing, show no support, or they want us to not be seen.  They fear our visibility because when we are seen, others will become less afraid to stand up as well.  When Republicans stand together and say, "No, we will not go quietly.  We will not be silenced.  We will not have our right to freedom of speech destroyed by you," then Democrats become very afraid.  It not only upsets them, but it bothers their image.  They want a picture that Trump can not and will not win.  They want to discourage us, disenfranchise us, and make us feel alone.  They really do not care how we vote in the booth.  They know they will not change that secret and sacred ballot, but they want to ensure that we do not influence anyone else.  They want us silent so that those undecided voters will not hear what we have to say.  It's going to be a scary time for Republicans....it's going to be an election like none you have seen. 

As the 2020 election draws near, you have to make a choice.  You are either going to stand up and support your Republican candidate, or you are going to allow the Democrats to cause you to cower, hide, and sneak into a booth to vote.  How will you handle it?  Will you let them intimidate you into silence?  Personally, there are few things I do not like in this life, and perhaps one of the top things I do not like is being told when I can and can not speak my mind.  Trust me, the Democrats are going to single you out and try to knock you down.  But you have one advantage that they are not prepared for and it is your most substantial advantage yet-they have knocked us down before and we always get back up stronger and better prepared.  We are Republicans. We are the party that stood up to slavery when few others would, we are the party that stood up for former slaves rights to vote, we are the party that supported the women's right to vote, and we are the party that pushed to see Civil Rights become law.  We are the party that sent troops when Democrats said "No" to desegregation, and we are the party that pushed to win the cold war.  We have a long history of fighting the uphill battles, but we also have a long account of winning them. 

YOU are not alone.  YOU are a Republican, and there are more of us out there than they can count.   When one of them knocks you down, one of us will step and tell them, "Why don't you try to knock me down now."  We are together, and we will stick together through it all.   This election season we are going to stand.  Our headquarters are going to open across the state and the nation, and we are going to be prepared.  Our signs are going up, and if they take them down, we will put more up in the same place.  Our flag has 50 stars, and that means there are 50 states where Republicans live, thrive, work, and vote.  You can reach out, you have the support, and we will support your right to free speech and your freedom to support the candidate of your choice.  We are Republicans...YOU ARE REPUBLICAN... and we will never back down from the fight to save this nation we love.  Always remember, you are not alone.   Perhaps Fredrick Douglass summed it all up best when he said, "I am a Republican...and I never intend to belong to any other party other than the party of freedom and progress." The fate of this nation is now your shoulders.  Will you decide that now is a time to stand?  Don't worry, there's an entire herd of us elephants out there, and if it comes to Democrats knocking us down, they are going to find there are some mighty big elephants in our herd that will be hard to knockdown.
