Four possible reasons Trump’s approval rating is suddenly on the rise

Let’s not get carried away here. President Trump’s latest approval rating of 43 percent isn’t going to land him atop the list of most popular presidents ever. But it is a three-point jump from last month, and you can be forgiven for finding it extraordinary considering the constant pounding the president takes from the press and the influential-for-some-reason late night talk hosts.

To listen to some of them, you’d think we had elected a completely incompetent, racist liar to serve as our president. How could it be that even 43 percent of Americans would approve of such a man?

For the first eight months of his presidency, Donald Trump has been continually thwarted by a combination of the left-wing media, the “deep state” bureaucracy, the Democrats and the establishment Republicans. On his own, President Trump has made dramatic and positive executive orders, but his legislative accomplishments have been disappointing due to the powerful forces arrayed against him.

Theoretically, the President should have been able to achieve all of his goals because the Republicans control all branches of government. Regrettably, the uncooperative congressional leadership has not produced any major victories for the President or his 63 million supporters.

U.N. globalists anticipate with glee any clash between you and North Korea

Mr. President:

The globalists are seeking to instigate worldwide terror with the design of eliciting worldwide support for an empowered United Nations, so let us not empower their design.

U.N. globalists anticipate with glee any clash between you and North Korea, as their plan is to have a global emergency that will justify their intervention as international “peace-keepers.” The U.N. would call upon the nations to comply with internationalist rule, thus fulfilling their plan to subjugate the nations to a central world authority whereby the sovereignty of each nation is relinquished in the name of world peace. It’s a stratagem to submerge us under a one-world government. Rocket-man and his global puppeteers are trying to tempt you into a fight, so beware.

At the same time, we can’t allow Kim Jong-brat to get away with murder, so, while maintaining a healthy show of military force, you should call upon nations to join you in a consolidated effort to deprive North Korea in every which way, i.e. no food, no supplies, no money, etc. Just make sure the U.N. is kept out of this. Peace loving nations would support and appreciate this approach, so here is where you can employ all your skill in wheeling and dealing. Gain their support for a peaceful solution, but I wouldn’t strike North Korea, because fighting with them will only strengthen the internationalist plan against America.

President Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power was reportedly “unmasking” Americans almost on a daily basis right up to President Trump’s inauguration, which bolsters Trump’s claim that the Obama administration tried to rig last year’s election by spying on the then-GOP candidate’s campaign.

Fox News is reporting that in the closing months of the Obama administration, Irish-born Power reportedly made more than 260 requests to identify Americans whose names turned up in foreign intelligence collection, a process called unmasking. Why an envoy to the United Nations would be involved in unmasking anyone, in this case focusing on the private communications of hundreds of Americans, has not been explained.

The protector of Obama’s legacy declares he will not vote for Graham-Cassidy

This might turn out worse than “skinny repeal.” I really thought the fact that it was his buddy’s bill might get him on board. Guess not:

Communism Never Died, It Was Cleverly Repackaged for the Historically Impaired and Useful Idiots

“For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog. For many people in the West, it is still a living lion.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

In 1950 Congress passed the Internal Security Act and, four years later, the Communist Control Act. It condemned communism and the Communist Party of the United States. Today a sizeable portion of Congress actually belongs to the Communist Party U.S.A. or is sympathetic to it. In a recent poll, 40 percent of Americans prefer communism to capitalism.

In 1954 Congress delineated penalties for anyone belonging to a party or a group calling for the violent overthrow of the United States. Just being a member, however, was not enough reason for arrest or penalty.  Today members of Congress, public citizens, and illegals call for the overthrow of our government without any penalties.

Kimmel prescribes ignorance, again

In his latest health care diatribe, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel says that health care is not his “area of expertise.”

Truer words have never been spoken.

Jimmy Kimmel on health care: ‘Am I supposed to just be quiet about this?’

I rather like Jimmy Kimmel when he’s just being funny. But for whatever lamentable reason, that’s no longer the job description of late night television talk hosts. Whereas Johnny Carson gabbed with celebrities and the younger version of David Letterman gave us stupid pet tricks, today’s late night hosts have decided their job is to moralize over political issues and bash Donald Trump at every opportunity.

Kimmel has been especially lauded for this because of his emotional tale of his young son with heart problems. Because Kimmel thinks (incorrectly) that children like his son couldn’t get coverage without ObamaCare, he has tabbed himself the moral conscience of health care reform - and an awful lot of other people have decided to cede him this role.

NYT Reporter: Hillary thinks it was the media’s ‘job to get Hillary Clinton elected.’ ...Well, wasn’

It doesn’t happen often but when it does - when I agree with Hillary Clinton - I like to make sure everyone knows about it.  I’m fair and unbiased like that. In this case, I’m talking about Hillary Clinton’s assertion that the “press didn’t do its job in 2016.” She’s 100% right. They didn’t.

You may think I’m going to go into a rant about how the media has been giving Hillary Clinton a free pass since the 80’s, but I’m not.  That’s not the point she’s making either.  She thinks the press failed because its job was to get her elected.  She, as we all know, was not elected.  That can’t be allowed to be her fault, so the media has become one of her scapegoats.

Tucker Carlson calls out Rob Meathead Reiner over Hollywood’s collusion with China

Hollywood loves China. Despite the country’s longstanding tradition of fascism, human rights abuses, and anti-American geopolitical efforts, movie studios just can’t wait to bow down before the Chinese government. A film that bombs in its native U.S. can turn a massive profit - sometimes even earning a sequel - thanks to the power of that sweet, sweet, communist moolah. In short, China spends a lot of money on movies.

...At least, it spends a lot of money on movies approved by its hyper-authoritarian censorship board.

Seattle’s pedophile mayor resigns under pressure

Seven months ago, openly gay Seattle Mayor Ed Murray (D), who resigned his office last week, angrily asserted that charges of child molestation against him were untrue.

Channeling Bill and Hillary Clinton, he called his alleged sexual victims liars and claimed he was the victim of a right-wing witch-hunt because he was gay:

Murray—who has championed gay rights over his career in the Legislature and now as mayor—has claimed the accusations against him are false and part of an anti-gay political conspiracy against him.

The left’s low power coup

Summary: The Left has discovered a new front in the ever-shifting war for media control: low power FM radio. It’s an innocuous-seeming concept with big repercussions for future audiences. But for conservatives, the fight may have been lost before it began.

The medium known as low power FM radio (LPFM) is, on the surface, hardly the stuff revolutions are made of. Yet this veteran medium is beloved of the free speech-hating Left because it offers a cheap buy-in with enormous gains. Since 2001, LPFM radio stations have rapidly developed in cities and regions across the United States. With an established network of leftist “free radio” groups ready to train, advise, and equip them, activists with no prior experience in broadcasting have the capability to organize people and spread their anti-American message.

For decades, left-wing ideologues have dreamed of utilizing low power radio as an organizing tool. Radio reaches an estimated 93 percent of everyone over 12 years old, and 200 million Americans tune in each week. It’s an enormous opportunity for the far Left, and one that conservative groups have totally ignored and are unprepared to face. With minimal funding and a handful of volunteers, progressives working in tandem with the federal government have the opportunity to monopolize thousands of licenses for low power radio stations nationwide—and all they need to run them is the power of a lightbulb.

Graham-Cassidy is far from a full ObamaCare repeal, but everything in it is good

There’s no question we’ve fallen a long way from the heady days of, er, January 2017, when we thought we were going to get a quick repeal of ObamaCare. Republican Congresses never fail to fail, and it should not be forgotten that the latest failure to repeal ObamaCare was very much the work of Lindsey Graham’s best buddy.

But here’s what I believe about legislation: You don’t vote for something just because it can pass, but you don’t oppose something just because it isn’t everything you’ve ever wanted. If the country would be better off with a bill’s passage - even if only a little better - then you vote for the bill. If you’ve left problems unsolved, then it’s your job to come back later and solve the other problems too. But opposing the solution of Problem A just because Problems B through Z are not being solve simultaneously makes no sense. Solving Problem A is better than not solving Problem A, so solve Problem A.

Build the Wall Build the Wall Build the Wall

President Trump’s speech before the UN was interesting in many ways.

He put the multinational globalists on official notice that he has their number and as far as he’s concerned their number is up. He let the UN bureaucrats know that their red tape parades have got to be reined in. He called socialism what it is, a failure. He held up capitalism as the means for raising people out of poverty and ignorance. He made the case for sovereignty both national, personal, and individual freedom. He pointed out that the US carries a disproportionate load for the support of the UN and that this has got to change or they might be looking for spare change if America cuts its funding for what has become an anti-American debating society. In other words, he let the world know that as far as his administration is concerned from now on it’s going to be America First.

Revisiting Orwell to Understand our Times

Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it. Big Brother, a term that many people still casually use to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the society that Orwell describes, all citizens are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of a constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class.

Orwell’s warnings about totalitarianism written in novel form in Animal Farm and 1984 came shortly after Freidrich Hayek’s Road to Serfdom was published at the end of World War II. But it took the shocking revelations from books on Nazism and Soviet Communism, by scholars like William Shirer and Robert Conquest in the 1960s to really make Orwell relevant to the masses educated in American public schools.  And it was not just an academic exercise, insofar as Stalin was at that time brutally crushing all resistance, enforcing the Soviet model of totalitarian control on East European countries that became satellite states of Moscow.

It’s looking like Obama and Comey wire-tapped Trump Tower after all, and that’s just the start

Here’s a question to ponder about the “Russia interfered” story that has thus far produced nothing of substance to justify its own existence: Was the whole thing contrived in order to justify a Democratic administration wiretapping a Republican campaign?

When the FBI wants to wiretap someone, it has to go to a judge under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and present reasonable cause to believe that someone is acting as an agent of a foreign government. Paul Manafort, who briefly served as chairman of the Trump campaign in 2016, has had lots of business dealings with Russia over the years, so if you wanted to catch him talking to Russians, it wouldn’t be hard to do so.

Pelosi: illegal immigrants ‘did a great thing for our country’ by bringing their DACA kids here

They broke our laws, entered the country illegally, in most cases use falsified documents or stolen social security numbers to obtain housing and employment, and created an immigration crisis that’s currently dividing the nation.  But ignore all that.  According to Nancy Pelosi, they’ve done us a huge favor!

You see, illegal immigrants brought their kids here - you’ll know them better as “dreamers” - and they’re just wonderful. If it wasn’t for their illegal-immigrant parents, DACA recipients wouldn’t be here, so Pelosi is grateful to illegal parents.

As she puts it, they “did a great thing for our country” by violating U.S. borders:

Nancy Pelosi meets her base

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was confronted by an angry mob of protesters at a town hall-type event on Monday. Along with Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), she organized the public meeting to promote the DREAM Act, the long-stalled proposed legislation grants generous benefits to illegal aliens. They were suddenly confronted with dozens of loud, well-organized protesters apparently angry that she had dared to negotiate with President Trump about the future of Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, the DREAM Act, and border security issues.


“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”—G.K. Chesterson

Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals.

Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that “male” and “female” are merely social constructs.
