Trump Takes A Stand!

By: Richard H. Frank

Americans now have an alternative to the once great Barnum and Bailey Circus which is no longer in existence. All we must do is tune our TV to C-SPAN and watch the House of Representatives oversight committee Chaired by Congressman Jerry Nadler. Since release of the Mueller Report Congressional Democrats have become paranoid with the never-ending quest to find something they can use to impeach President Trump. They will launch investigation after investigation to find some shred of evidence regarding the President, his family, staff and Cabinet appointees with which to finalize their silent coup. At best their search has been futile if not entertaining.

Today President Trump has had enough. Following Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments that Donald Trump is involved in a coverup, the President attended a previously scheduled meeting on infrastructure with Pelosi and Senator Schumer and announced that there would be no legislation approved so long as these scurrilous, unending investigations continued. He then proceeded to the Rose Garden and addressed the Press with a review of the two-year activities by Mueller’s Special Counsel team. He expressed his respect for Congressional oversight, the Department of Justice, and the Courts in conducting legitimate inquiries but not for harassment of the President and his Administration. His remarks were heated and represented the feelings of the majority of Americans regarding how the Democrats in Congress are abusing their power instead of legislating on behalf of the people they are supposed to represent.

Having failed to find anything that rises to the level of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” they have once again fallen back on their crusade of personal destruction casting a broad net over President Trump, his family and members of his Administration. I think the Democrats should take heed of the statement made by their hero Barack Obama when he told John McCain that elections have consequences. Should they pursue their present path to impeach the President and therefore halt his agenda they may feel the wrath of the voters come 2020.

Were the situation at our southern border and the need to address our flailing infrastructure and trade deficit not so crucial, the actions being pursued by the Democrats in the House of Representatives would make for a must see soap opera on television. Now is the time to get serious and begin to govern instead of unending investigations. Should this personal hatred for Trump persist and continue in the attempt for impeachment, or a silent coup the voters will settle this dispute between branches of Government one way or the other. In either case I don’t think the Washington elites and professional politicians will like the outcome.

The Deep State has been proven to exist and is populated with unelected bureaucrats doing everything to perpetuate their power and move this nation closer and closer to socialism. American voters must remain vigilant and protect against legislation that erodes our Constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms and upholds the rule of law. The Progressives in Government, Local, State and Federal, are moving further and further away from the principles upon which this nation was founded. Sanctuary cities and states pass ordinances that restrict law enforcement and challenge the very tenets of the Constitution, i.e. the Electoral College, and supremacy clauses. “A nation divided cannot stand.”

Americans Deserve The Government They Vote Into Power.

Following the re-election of Barack Obama as President in 2012, I decided that the Country deserved what they voted for and that many would spend the next four years experiencing buyer’s remorse. As a result my posts to this blog have become more infrequent as I observed the media and the public in general turn a deaf ear to the scandals being perpetuated by the Obama Administration.

How ignorant or apathetic have the citizens of this great nation become when they ignore the lies perpetuated by this President and his Administration? Every prediction related to Obamacare and the devastating impact it would have on the nation when the government controls one sixth of the economy are all coming to fruition. Domestically the Veterans Administration scandal along with the IRS targeting of organizations in opposition to Obama’s policies seem to have struck a nerve with the public but are characterized by Obama as phony scandals. Not withstanding the media’s ignoring the mounting evidence of criminal activity on the part of officials in the IRS and possible complicity of the Justice Department and the White House, Eric Holder refuses to appoint a Special Prosecutor to take charge of the investigation. Obama’s answer to every crisis or scandal is to appoint a team to study the situation and make recommendations as to how they can be avoided in the future. He is always caught by surprise and his lame excuse that he was not aware of the issue has worn thin to the point of his making a fool of himself with every speech he makes when attempting to show leadership to the public. 

Having been struck down by the Supreme Court numerous times for overstepping his authority when issuing Executive Orders, his response is to double down and side step the Constitution and the Congress whenever he thinks he can get away with it. Thus far he has rewritten the immigration law to allow minor children of illegals to avoid deportation sparking thousands of illegal children to cross our southern border believing they will be admitted to the United States without fear of being returned to their home country. He now threatens to take action on comprehensive immigration reform as Congress refused to take action pending securing of the border.  These actions along with rewriting of the Health care Law more than thirty times and selective enforcement of other existing laws would result in impeachment of any other President.  No where in any of his speeches deriding the Republicans does he say that his own Democrat party in the Senate, aided and abetted by Harry Reid, has stopped every single piece of legislation sent from the House by not allowing those votes to come to the Senate floor.

Obama’s foreign policy and his pension for leading from behind  have resulted in reconstituting fanatic elements of Al Qaeda  and the formation of ISAS in Syria and Iraq to the extent that the blood and treasure of this Nation over the past Decade have been wasted. Today his dithering as Commander-in-Chief has resulted in the loss of respect by our allies around the world. He can never admit that it is his policies and decisions that have led us to the turmoil we must face in the Mideast.   It is no longer a matter of if but when the next attack upon America will happen; but rest assured it will come as a complete surprise to Barack Obama and his Administration.

The only thing that has kept Barack Obama from being impeached is the historic nature of his being the first black man elected to the Presidency. His performance in office has proven that he was never qualified or equipped to be President of the United States. That said his position in history insulates him from impeachment and scrutiny for commission of high crimes and misdemeanors. As a result there is only one way “We the People” can restrain Obama from doing further damage to this nation in his quest to “Fundamentally Change America.” We must exercise our right to vote in the 2014 mid-term election and assure that Republicans retain the House of Representatives and gain sufficient seats in the Senate to control both houses in Congress.  Americans who are disgusted at the course our Country is taking cannot afford to stay home again rather than get out and vote! The balance of power must be restored in government and the Executive branch restrained in their march toward socialism if the Republic is to be preserved as intended by the Founding Fathers.

Barack Obama has succeeded in bringing the nation’s economy from the strongest producer in the world to that of a dependent  society resembling France. More people have left the work force and given up as contributors than jobs have been created in the private sector due directly to Obama’s policies on energy independence and his war against the Coal Industry in America. As energy costs continue to rise and income shrinks or remain stagnant this Administration doubles down on regulatory rules from the EPA and other agencies that are strangling investment and growth in this nations GDP.  The rising prices in food and energy are taking a terrible toll on the senior citizens and poor in the country. How long under Obama’s policies will it be before we run out of other people’s money to borrow to pay for his idea of Utopia? As we approach $20 trillion in the national debt it won’t take much before our creditors decide to foreclose on the United States of America.

Our last chance to change course for the nation rests in the decisions we make in the voting booth this coming November. Keep in mind we have no one to blame but ourselves for the government and representatives we elect. We deserve what we get.
