Reality of today’s rise of Fascism in our once God-fearing America

As I understand “it”, Google dictates in Google world whether this article or any article…even if using the Prager name or otherwise….is worthy of being read ala-Google  by any  public according to  today’s LEFTIST SOCIALIST DICTATES OR HABITS OF THOSE WHO RUN and/or Decide for GOOGLE and others google-like, all apparently neo-fascists of small print, if truth could be told….but fascists none the less.

I was born in 1934…during the Depression….but  before the bombing of Pearl Harbor.   Families had mothers AND fathers in those days.  Fathers worked 48 hours a week, but were “free” with family on Sundays.   “Free with family” meant Sunday morning was for Church attendance; the rest of the day was free “with family”…..including uncles and aunts, grandparents, and in my Mother’s family case, my Great Grandmother Kraft who spoke only German, but understood English.  She possessed all of her German mind and family status faculties until she died at age 98 in 1947.

Most stores, shops, business were closed on Sundays in the Twin Cities where I lived.

And then there was THE WAR when our new 1941 Plymouth sedan became stored in our family garage until autumn, 1945.  Although there were  moments of gangster John Dillinger popping in and out of St. Paul during the 1930s,   crime seemed to have disappeared from concern in  the city until the mid 1960s when  the sexual, black,  druggie and peacenik revolution changed our American family seemingly forever.

National Socialism began to stir and explode at university.   Seeking God and Truth had begun to  disappear from America,   There were ” no longer any differences to be established between the human male and human female.  Socialist equality Soviet style became the religion of our day…..Free, free at last, to be equally controlled by the rising smoke and odor of authoritarian leftist government…one sex, one class, one Google, one Facebook, one fascist world without the JudeoChristian God.

Free, free, and “safe” at  last to live alone, think alone, know nothing alone, and talk alone.

Whatever happened to Truth?   Are humans all created Lefties, Feminists uneducated by the  dictates,  realities of Americana today…its fake news,  its CNN’s, PBS’s, MSNBC’s and their such, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post, and their  fake “Liberal Arts”  universities and school teachings?  Is  their small elite creating a dictatorship over the masses; the poor and ignorant who have not yet intellectually risen to the stature of Lying Adam Schiff, fascist Bernie Sanders or  Crooked Hillary?

Let’s play with a bit of today’s Leftism….its Love for One Party Fascism and Feminism!

They in the USA preach the human female and male are the same  beings, but its  feminists of all colors, shapes, sexes, and sizes have been made unequal due to the meanness, even the evil of the sly human male…..those foul Republicans.

So be it!  If one lives in a free country, one can still learn stupid and dangerous things, for sure!    I was lucky.  I was born an American male, genetically driven to be curious, to become  learned, “amass”  knowledge to pierce the unknown  from 1939 to about three years ago when I seemed to begin  relying more on memory  than amassing knowledge.

I,  Churched and schooled, discovered  early that the human male animal is born a killer.  Being a thinking animal I was taught to be a child of God…of goodness….decency….to do unto others as I would have them do unto me…..and so became  GodFearing  rising and living “above the animal state”  dictatorships such as NATIONAL SOCIALIST GERMANY, AND SOVIET SOCIALIST USSR AND MAO COMMUNIST-SOCIALIST CHINA, or believing in today’s American ADAM SCHIFF SOCIALIST-DEMOCRAT POLITICAL PARTY!

I learned from existing, teaching, and learning, that the human female animal is born DITSY!   She is driven primarily by ‘feelings’…..”not curiosity” to be secure rather than exploring or problem solving!

Whether in China, Russia, Central Africa, or Nordic Europe or America…..the “he” is ‘heavenly’,  ‘genetically’ gifted, driven,  to be curious, to wonder “why” and respond genetically!  He is  to find his space and role in life.  He begins  still as crawling  child,  his drive to snoop, to  explore, to  “feel” the world around him !

The she of the living  species and culture, is, of course, equal in value to  the human male, for she produces and early protects the child itself.    However, the he, as an animal,  is born  in nearly every culture  to protect ‘her and child’.   He is programmed to problem solve, to  hunt, to build, to explore, to defend, to  die to save home, country or village.


Freedom is NOT A NATURAL  FEMALE DRIVE….SECURITY IS.    Seeking Truth is also not a natural female drive.  FEELINGS ARE  by instinct!

Which American communications industry would publish or report such a Truth generalized as the above to today’s American public?

Do know and remember that fascistic Google  has zapped 80 or so of those terrific five minute  Prager University freedom articles from its ‘files’ for the American and other public to view!  Why were they made to disappear?    ANSWER….

They didn’t fit its leftist god management!?  ghr

CJack Reviews Zuckerberg’s FACEBOOK Police State Actions against American Conservatives!

—Facebook and the American Left vs. Free Speech in America—

Is it time to break up Facebook before it becomes the surreptitious arm of the DNC’s single-party police state? Is it time to revisit the *Sherman Antitrust Act before “Facebook” become the government’s big gorilla in the chat room? I say yes. In Mark Zuckerberg, the Founder and Chairman of Facebook, the enemies of the American Constitutional Republic have found a ‘deep pockets’ useful fool to monitor and suppress our right to free speech without reservations; a right of free citizens which is under a tsunami of incendiary rhetoric and charlatanry facilitated through social-media technology; a tool much more effective than Stalin’s Pravda and Tass.

But today in America the chat room democratic-socialists are contesting the ‘open borders’ globalists under new totalitarian banners sprung from the bowels of Marx’s communism; yet our overfed and over-entertained nation could care less about the conspiracy to cripple its duly elected President taking place under the bogus investigation by and unconstitutional “special counsel” and his cohorts…while the arch-enemies of free speech in Moscow and Beijing are planning to celebrate the demise of the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The anti-Trump ignoramuses in our vitriolic liberal media prefer to foment hate against our duly elected 45th President than to accept the law as stated in Section 4 of the US Constitution: “The President, Vice President, and all civil (nonmilitary) officers of the United States may be impeached and removed from office if convicted of treason, bribery (payment for favors, breaking the trust of office) a crime, or any other high crimes or misdemeanors (crimes considered less serious than felonies).” Therefore, since Mueller’s investigation has not found–after more than 18 months and the mounting millions of taxpayer dollars— evidence of any egregious misconduct against the President for Congress to impeach him. For the sake of the country, this malodorous unconstitutional investigation, conducted by the mal-intended unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller should be ended immediately. The duly elected 45th President of the United States must be permitted to govern the nation without further petulant and malicious distractions. I reiterate, thus far Mueller has not brought forth any evidence to indict the President for the House to accuse the President and for the Senate to conduct a trial of the President. By the way, Mueller has no power or authority to subpoena the President of the United States. The President would be ill advised by his lawyers to meet with the malicious, unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert “Muleface” Mueller whose attempt is to entrap him.

Let us inform the undercutting liberal media that the duties of the President include receiving ambassadors and other public ministers (representatives) from foreign countries; and to see that the laws of the United States are carried out faithfully. To invite the President of Russia, the Honorable Vladimir Putin, to a White House visit is pragmatic and wise diplomacy if we are to peacefully coexist with Russia. President Trump’s meeting with President Putin in Helsinki was not to publicly vent against Russia, it was simply the right time and opportunity to construct a new staircase for peace in our troubled world. However, for this to happen, we must crack down on the anarchists and hold the liberal media responsible for its divisive racist and political fabrications. We have had enough. Free speech must always be kept in check by our legal and moral boundaries. The idea that under free speech anything goes has been, historically, a losing societal proposition. The French Revolution offers a clear example of the incivility of a liberated citizenry without legal and moral boundaries. The ‘free’ French ended up exchanging a king for an emperor.

The liberal media has deliberately failed to inform the nation that the President, acting under his Constitutional authority, did not obstruct justice when he fired the corrupt, incompetent, leaker ex-FBI Director James Comey; the President’s subordinate. By the way, this was a firing recommended by the current Deputy USAG Rod Rosenstein who unconstitutionally appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel with a suspiciously broad scope and range to conduct an investigation of the President based on a fabricated “dossier” about a Trump-Russia collusion. The infamous “dossier” was a DNC/Clinton/Obama contingency plan in case their “sure-winner” Hillary Clinton lost the election. And it has all backfired.

So I say it is time, since there is no proof of collusion and/or obstruction of justice, for USAG Jeff Sessions to resign or to withdraw his recusal to fire Rod Rosenstein under the charge that he, Rosenstein, has improperly discharged his responsibilities as Deputy USAG. This should be immediately followed by a recommendation to end the unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Mueller’s “Trump-Russia” investigation, for the good of the country. Yet, having failed to prove collusion, Mueller is now trying to ‘spin’ the fabricated “dossier” by implying that it was really a Trump-Putin conspiracy that wrecked the old mare’s dream of winning the electoral derby.

The President should have turned the tables on Mueller by directing the DOJ to examine the actions of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Obama’s Secretary of State; the role of Robert Mueller (as director of the FBI) in the matter of the “Uranium One” transaction with the Russian corporation Rosatom; and concurrently investigate the actions of John Brennan during his tenure as CIA Director; and James Clapper, former Director of US National Intelligence. But the “deep state” made it difficult for the neophyte incoming President to quickly assemble his cabinet.

Make no mistake about the intent of Muleface Mueller and those behind this conspiracy to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States; their ultimate aim is to rewrite the US Constitution and the authority and power of the Executive Office. From all indications the transformation of America Obama promised to his blind jubilant supporters gathered at Chicago’s Grant Park on the night of his election to the White House in 2008, was truly a devilish proposition not only to rewrite the U.S. Constitution (because, as he said, it contained negative rights) but to also remodel the US Congress in the manner of yesteryear’s Soviet Union’s Politburo; or, perhaps into something closer to Red China’s current legislative model—(Note: the “Little Red Book” of the late Chairman Mao was discarded after China’s Senior Vice-Premier Deng Xiaoping visited Singapore for a discussion of free-market economics with Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew).

I therefore urge you to defend our values and ideals by firmly rejecting Barack Obama and his band of anarchists, the globalist George Soros’ open borders madness, and Facebook’s suppression of free speech.
At every opportunity I exhort you to help us energize our Conservative base to win this coming November to retain the majority in the House and Senate; and in 2020 to re-elect President Donald J. Trump to a 2nd Term in the White House. Consider this a patriotic call to arms, by way of the vote, to defend the American Constitution, its laws and legal processes. In God we trust.

To curse silent trees, autumn’s falling leaves;
Summer slides into fall; as fall shall to winter;
Cold days of snow an’ ice to sharpen her pain;
For on her way the old woman left many a lame;
Alas, a mad broken old mare at the derby ran;
But a horse from Queens, beat her at the track!

The Collapse of JudeoChristian America…..Hello Lefty Fascism!

The 10 Most Destructive Americans of My 8 Decades

by Frank Hawkins  at American Thinker:

America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

10) Mark Felt – Deputy director of the FBI, aka “Deep Throat” during the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior FBI officially directly interfering in America’s political affairs. Forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe.

9) Bill Ayers– Represents the deep and ongoing leftist ideological damage to our education system. An unrepentant American terrorist who evaded punishment, he devoted his career to radicalizing American education and pushing leftist causes. Ghost wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father.”

8) Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary Joe Kopechne to die in his car at Chappaquiddick. The real damage came after he avoided punishment for her death and became a major Democrat force in the US Senate, pushing through transformative liberal policies in health care and education.  The real damage was the 1965 Hart-Cellar immigration bill he pushed hard for that changed the quota system to increase the flow of third world people without skills into the US and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.

7) Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who began the politicalization of America’s news media with his infamous broadcast from Vietnam that described the Tet Offensive as a major victory for the Communists and significantly turned the gullible American public against the Vietnam War. In fact, the Tet offensive was a military disaster for the NVA and Viet Cong, later admitted by North Vietnamese military leaders. Decades later Cronkite admitted he got the story wrong. But it was too late.  The damage was done.

6) Bill and Hillary Clinton—It’s difficult to separate Team Clinton. Bill’s presidency was largely benign as he was a relative fiscal conservative who rode the remaining benefits of the Reagan era. But his sexual exploits badly stained the Oval Office and negatively affected America’s perception of the presidency. In exchange for financial support, he facilitated the transfer of sensitive military technology to the Chinese.  Hillary, a Saul Alinsky acolyte, is one of the most vicious politicians of my lifetime, covering up Bill’s sexual assaults by harassing and insulting the exploited women and peddling influence around the globe in exchange for funds for the corrupt Clinton Foundation. She signed off on the sale of 20% of the US uranium reserve to the Russians after Bill received a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow and the foundation (which supported the Clinton’s regal lifestyle) received hundreds of millions of dollars from those who benefited from the deal.  Between them, they killed any honor that might have existed in the dark halls of DC.

5) Valerie Jarrett – The Rasputin of the Obama administration.  A Red Diaper baby, her father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law (Vernon Jarrett who was a close friend and ally of Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis) were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government. She has been in Obama’s ear for his entire political career pushing a strong anti-American, Islamist, anti-Israeli, socialist/communist, cling-to-power agenda.

4) Jimmy Carter  – Carter ignited modern day radical Islam by abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the main state sponsor and promoter of international Islamic terrorism.  When Islamists took over our embassy in Tehran, Carter was too weak to effectively respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.

3) Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the generals instead of automaker Robert McNamara. The ultimate result was: 1) 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands of American lives damaged; and 2) a war that badly divided America and created left wing groups that evaded the draft and eventually gained control of our education system.  Even worse, his so-called War on Poverty led to the destruction of American black families with a significant escalation of welfare and policies designed to keep poor families dependent on the government (and voting Democrat) for their well-being. He deliberately created a racial holocaust that is still burning today. A strong case could be made for putting him at the top of this list.

2) Barack Hussein Obama – Obama set up America for a final defeat and stealth conversion from a free market society to socialism/communism. As we get deeper into the Trump presidency, we learn more each day about how Obama politicized and compromised key government agencies, most prominently the FBI, the CIA and the IRS, thus thoroughly shaking the public’s confidence in the federal government to be fair and unbiased in its activities. He significantly set back race and other relations between Americans by stoking black grievances and pushing radical identity politics. Obama’s open support for the Iranian mullahs and his apologetic “lead from behind” foreign policy seriously weakened America abroad. His blatant attempt to interfere in Israel’s election trying to unseat Netanyahu is one of the most shameful things ever done by an American president.

1) John Kerry – Some readers will likely say Kerry does not deserve to be number one on this list. I have him here because I regard him as the most despicable American who ever lived.  After his three faked Purple Hearts during his cowardly service in Vietnam, he was able to leave the US Navy early. As a reserve naval officer and in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris and met privately with the NVA and the Viet Cong. He returned to the United States parroting the Soviet party line about the war and testified before Congress comparing American soldiers to the hordes of Genghis Khan. It was a clear case of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. We got a second bite of the bitter Kerry apple when as Obama’s secretary of state, he fell into bed with the Iranian (“Death to America”) mullahs giving them the ultimate green light to develop nuclear weapons along with billions of dollars that further supported their terrorist activities. Only the heroic Swift Vets saved us from a Manchurian Candidate Kerry presidency. Ultimately we got Obama.


Dishonorable Mentions! (Just missed the list)

John Brennan –Obama’s CIA director who once voted for Communist Gus Hall for president. A key member of the Deep State who severely politicized the CIA. Called President Trump treasonous for meeting with the president of Russia.

Jane Fonda – movie actress who made the infamous trip to Vietnam during the war in support of the Communists. She represents hard left Hollywood that has done so much damage to our culture.

Jimmy Hendrix and Janice Joplin – Both revered entertainers helped usher in the prevailing drug culture and personally suffered the consequences. Karma’s a bitch.

Robert Johnson /BET – Helped popularize ho’s, bitches and pimps while making millions on great hits such as “Jigga my Nigga”, “Big Pimpin’”, “Niggas in Paris” and “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.”   Many scholars within the African American community maintain that BET perpetuates and justifies racism by adopting the stereotypes held about African Americans, affecting the psyche of young viewers through the bombardment of negative images of African Americans. Who can disagree?

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr./The New York Times – Once the gold standard of American journalism, the paper always had a liberal tilt and occasionally made bad mistakes. As the years have gone along, the paper has slid further and further left and today is virtually the primary propaganda arm of the increasingly radical Democrat Party. Still retains influence in Washington and New York.

George Soros – Jewish former Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary who as a self-made billionaire has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into left wing groups and causes. The damage he has caused is difficult to measure, but it’s certainly large. He has funded much of the effort to kill the Trump presidency.

Frank Marshall Davis – Anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying Soviet agent.  Probable birth father and admitted primary mentor of young Barak Hussein Obama.


Note:   I also was a lucky American…..one born and raised when USA was in its Depression and was bombed at Pearl Harbor into World War II.   We were an overwhelmingly JudeoChristian people then.    People were married and had children.   The children had Mothers……and played with neighborhood children.  Every school morning we stood to pledge allegiance to the flag and to our President…..whether  Democrat or Republican.
We had to learn knowledge to help us to know better  right from wrong.    The more knowledge we amassed made us “closer to God…..for God knows all matter”, and help us to solve problems and recognized goodness.  (in Public school, folks!)
We had to read Shakespeare’s plays, The Merchant of Venice,  Macbeth, and Hamlet in 9th grade!  I studied Latin for three years….and have never regretted it!
One did not get a passing grade merely for showing up, until my senior year in autumn 1951 when the lefties of the nation’s colleges of “education”  made  Pass or Fail  the only choices.  Too large a number of students were too competitive which made slackers feel bad, they claimed.

The Religious Right Saving America!

Musings on the President, the Religious Right, Democrats, and the Supreme Court

In this Jan. 31, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump shakes hands with 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch, his choice for Supreme Court Justices in the East Room of the White House in Washington.

By MICHAEL BROWN at the Stream:

Since there are many legal pundits far more qualified than I to debate the merits and demerits of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, I’ll focus here on some larger, related issues.

1) This is the main reason many of us voted for Donald Trump.

We do well to remember that many of us who identify as evangelicals had grave reservations about candidate Trump. Many of us said that, out of the 17 Republican candidates, he was our last choice.

Some of us (including me) frequently spoke and wrote against him during the primaries. (See, for example, this video I posted on November 27, 2015, titled, “Why Evangelical Christians Should Have a Problem with Donald Trump.” Because it was my position at the time, for the sake of integrity and honesty, we have kept it online even though I ultimately voted for Trump.)

Yet the major reason we voted for Trump in large numbers was because we hoped he would keep his word about Supreme Court nominees. We voted for him because we were voting against Hillary, which leads us to reflect on a stark reality. Had Hillary been elected, President Obama would probably have been able to get his pick for the Court: namely, Merrick Garland. And Hillary would be making her first pick now.

Help us champion truth, freedom, limited government and human dignity.Support The Stream »

So, you would have Garland instead of Neil Gorsuch, plus a presumably, far-left pick rather than Brett Kavanaugh. And maybe Justice Ginsburg would be more ready to step down, allowing for a young liberal to take her place. Then the Democrats would secure a third pick already.

The implications for America’s future — at least for the next 30-40 years — are massive.

To date, Donald Trump has not disappointed us in his picks, both for Supreme Court as well as for the many other federal appointees. This is a major reason, if not the major reason, many of us voted for him.

2) President Trump is not the puppet of the religious right.

In the days leading up to the president’s Supreme Court nominee, this was a common charge. Yet it is one that people easily dismiss.

Simply stated, if anything is clear about Trump it is that he is his own man. No one can bridle him or rein him in, to the consternation of many. And he has sometimes embarrassed conservative Christian leaders with his rhetoric and temperament. That is not the behavior of a puppet.

I’m close to faith leaders who got close to Donald Trump during his candidacy, and some of them are part of his faith advisory counsel. While he listens to them with respect, to a person they would tell you that he makes his decisions independently.

As one of the leaders told me face to face when I asked about him tempering his tweets, “It’s unlikely that a 70-year-old man is going to change.”

What is remarkable, though, is that he seems to have embraced the convictions of Christian conservatives. When it comes to crucial issues such as abortion, religious liberties, and the meaning of marriage, he has stood by the Christian viewpoint. It is a providential, quite unexpected, and apparently sovereign union that goes beyond Trump’s formula for victory. (In other words, it’s more than just good campaign strategy.)

Somehow, these issues became important to him, because of which he became close to many evangelical believers, who then earned his respect and loyalty. Again, this is a far cry from being a puppet.

3) President Obama nominated two far-left justices to the Supreme Court. What’s so terrible about President Trump nominating two solid conservatives to the Court?

Comedian Dennis Miller tweeted two days ago, “Just to keep things in perspective, or not, Trump could nominate either Amy Coney Barrett or Vladimir Putin tomorrow and the headlines would be exactly the same. #DennisMillerOption.” Exactly so.

The one thing that was certain was this: Whoever Trump nominated, there would be an outcry from the left. The sky is falling! This is the end of the world! We must go to the streets and protest!

Fox News even played video clips Monday night of college students weighing in on the Trump nominee. They were interviewed hours (if not days) before Trump’s announcement was made, but already, they were denouncing the pick as racist. One student suggested the nominee wear white robes rather than black robes!

Yet President Obama was able to make his picks. And when it comes to their ideological base, you could easily argue that they are much farther to the left than Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are to the right.

For example, in September 2014, Justice Elena Kagan “officiated for the first time at a same-sex wedding, a Maryland ceremony for her former law clerk and his husband.” Yet the Court did not rule to redefine marriage until one year later.

Already in 2010, CBS News ran this headline: “EXCLUSIVE: Documents Show Kagan’s Liberal Opinion on Social Issues.” Her decisions to date have been consistently to the left, sometimes in extreme form.

As for Justice Sonia Sotomayor (to give just one example), when it came to the Hobby Lobby decision, she claimed that it compromised “hundreds of Wheaton [University’s] employees and students of their legal entitlement to contraceptive coverage” (my emphasis).

Yet I don’t recall the same level of outcry against Obama’s nominees when compared to Trump’s. Was there very strong concern about Obama’s nominees from those of us on the right? Absolutely. Was there the same kind of hysteria? Not to my memory.

The Elephant in the Room

The real issue is that everyone knows that one of the greatest sacred cows of the left (and of the Democratic party) is now at risk: namely, Roe v. Wade. Even the possibility of this landmark ruling being threatened sends shock waves into the liberal world. The reaction will no doubt be intense, and it will go far beyond words. It will turn to acts of violence.

My hope is that the extreme, shrill, and over-the-top reaction of the left will turn moderates away.

For the moment, though, expect things to get ugly. Really ugly. May cooler heads prevail.

Donald Trump….The Man in Charge!

Trump vs. the Democrats: Aces Galore!

by  Elad Hakim   at  American Thinker:

Have you ever watched a tennis match where the server consistently loses the point because the player returning the serve is simply better, smarter, and more talented? After a while, the server gets desperate and begins to throw everything over the net in the hopes that something works.

Welcome to the modern-day Democrat. Like the server, the Democrats have tried to throw everything against President Trump and/or Republicans, hoping that something would stop his/their momentum. Despite their efforts, each attempt has been swatted away and/or returned for an ace.

First, Democrats tried to pin President Trump’s triumphant election victory on alleged Russian collusion, the nature of which they have been unable to prove despite a long and costly investigation by Robert Mueller. To date, the investigation continues, additional money and resources are being wasted, and no evidence of collusion has been found. As a matter of fact, the investigation reeks of bias given the fact that the FBI agent who originally put the investigation into motion couldn’t stand the president (and wanted him to lose) as disclosed in the IG report.

After the tragic events in Parkland, the Democrats then turned their attention to the Second Amendment and politicized this tragedy because Republicans were not necessarily willing to severely limit their right to bear arms pursuant to the Second Amendment. In response, some Republicans, including Governor Rick Scott, addressed some of their concerns by signing new gun regulations. This was not enough for the Democrats, who called for an all-out ban on semi-automatic weapons (this would cover many handguns, etc. today). Fortunately, the Second Amendment remains strong. As Democrats saw that this issue was losing steam, they moved on.

Democrats then seized on the North Korea issue. President Trump was scheduled to meet the North Korean dictator in a history-making summit. While this was an incredible accomplishment, some Democrats criticized President Trump for making certain concessions during the negotiations and/or expressed displeasure with the way that the president described the release of several prisoners who were being detained by North Korea. Chuck Schumer stated:

“We can’t be fooled into giving the North Korean regime credit for turning (over) Americans that never should have been detained in the first place,” Schumer said. “It is so troubling to hear President Trump say that Kim Jong-Un treated the Americans excellently.”

Obviously, the summit took place and, while a lot of work remains to be done, the two countries have better diplomatic relations now than they had before President Trump took office. This was yet another Democratic misstep.

Democrats then turned to immigration as their next hot-topic issue. They argued that President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy tore kids away from their families. Of course, this was the law before President Trump took office, but that was a “technicality” that the left was willing to ignore to score political points. In response, President Trump issued an executive order keeping children and families who entered the country illegally together. Of course, even though this directly addressed their initial complaints, Democrats criticized the executive order because it allowed illegal immigrants to be held “indefinitely.” To their dismay, the Supreme Court also upheld President Trump’s travel ban. Once again, Democrats were on the losing end. They needed something else.

Recently, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he will be retiring from the Supreme Court. Upon hearing this, Democrats immediately began to attack President Trump’s potential list of nominees before he even narrowed down the list of prospects. For example, Chuck Schumer threatened that no Republican nominee would be confirmed from Trump’s list of twenty-five potential candidates.

Democrats started painting a picture that a Republican-leaning Supreme Court would overturn Rose v. Wade, take away a woman’s right to choose, limit the rights of immigrants, etc. President Trump is scheduled to announce his nominee on July 9, 2018. Even though Democrats will likely refuse to confirm a Republican nominee, Republicans, including Mitch McConnell, can always resort to the “nuclear” option if need be (this does not create good precedent, however). Time will tell what happens in this chapter.

Although this piece only covers several issues, many would argue that the set and match ended long ago. Democrats are suffering losses everywhere, including in the courts, within their own party (e.g. the #WalkAway movement), and in the important court of public opinion. Americans want results, which the president and Republicans are delivering.  So long as this continues, it should be game, set, and match for the president, Republicans, and their followers.
