FOR DEMOCRATS, THERE’S NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL

Jul 23, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

Despite the continual drama surrounding President Trump and his administration, it is comforting to know that his political opposition is in total chaos. Since the 2008 presidential election of Barack Obama, Democrats have lost over 1,000 state legislative seats across the country. While Democrats have total control of the Governorship and state legislatures in only five states, today Republicans have the most legislative seats in the history of the party.

With 33 GOP Governors, control of the U.S. House, Senate and White House, the Republican Party dominates the national political scene today. Unfortunately for the President, Democrats still maintain control over the liberal media and the “deep state,” the mammoth and powerful federal bureaucracy. Thus, the President has to endure an unfair, biased and ever expanding investigation by a Special Prosecutor, who should have never been appointed.

PRESIDENTS JEFFERSON & JACKSON DISOWNED BY DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Jul 15, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

A once proud political party has now been completely overtaken by the insidious forces of political correctness. For decades, Democrats celebrated two of their founders, Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, with an annual banquet. This event was held across the country as a fundraiser for local and state Democratic Party organizations. Yet, in an era when historical revisionism and political correctness runs amok, state party organizations have begun to change the names of the annual event. 

The Louisiana Democratic Party has become the latest state organization to join the bandwagon and disown Jefferson and Jackson. Their upcoming banquet, which will be held in New Orleans on August 26, will now be called the “True Blue Gala.” Presumably, no one will be offended by the word “blue,” but in this age of snowflakes and professional protesters, we can never be sure.

NEVER TRUMP CRITICS LOOK FOOLISH TODAY

Jul 8, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

During the 2016 election, the “Never Trump” conservative critics of Donald Trump predicted a catastrophe for the country if he was elected President. Well, as we approach the six-month anniversary, America is witnessing our most successful presidency since Ronald Reagan.

Contrary to worries from movement conservatives, the President assembled a stellar cabinet and appointed a solid strict constructionist, Justice Neil Gorsuch, to the Supreme Court.

He instituted a travel ban, upheld by the Supreme Court, on six majority Muslim countries that harbor terrorists and cannot provide adequate vetting of their citizens who want to visit the United States. While we await construction of the border wall, deportations of illegal aliens have increased and the flow of undocumented immigrants across the southern border has dropped dramatically.

KEEP TWEETING MR. PRESIDENT

Jul 2, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

The more the media and the establishment politicians scream about the President’s tweets, the more obvious it becomes that he should keep tweeting. President Trump has over 33 million followers on Twitter and his tweets are a terrific way to connect with his supporters without the filter of the liberal media.

This week he tweeted about critical issues such as the House passage of “Kate’s Law” and the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.” These bills fulfill the President’s campaign promises to take decisive action against the threat of illegal aliens in this country.

He also tweeted about his meeting with the President of South Korea and his speech touting his plan to unleash the American energy industry. Predictably, none of those issues received any coverage as all the media focused on was his tweets about the low rated MSNBC show, “Morning Joe.”

HOLLYWOOD GOES OFF THE DEPP END

Jun 25, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

It is getting extremely difficult to keep track of the ever increasing number of fading Hollywood stars threatening to harm or kill President Donald Trump. The latest outrage occurred when overrated actor Johnny Depp joked about assassinating the President at a U.K. music festival. He asked the crowd “When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?” This was obviously a reference to actor John Wilkes Booth who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. He dug an even deeper hole when he followed his question by making a thinly veiled threat on the President’s life.  Amazingly, he told the crowd, “it’s been a while, maybe it is time.”
                             
For these remarks, Depp should be visited by the Secret Service and possibly charged with threatening the life of President Trump. It is a Class E felony; punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine.

A GOOD WEEK FOR GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS

Jun 17, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.”—Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President, National Rifle Association

Despite the horrible news of the week, including the killing of two prison guards in Georgia and the attempted assassination of Republican congressmen in Arlington, VA on Wednesday it was a good week for good guys with guns.

Donnie Rowe and James Dubose are accused of killing two prison guards early Tuesday morning as they were being transferred between detention facilities southeast of Atlanta. After their escape, they spent two days on the run until they were spotted by Tennessee state troopers.

REALITY BITES WINNER AS SHE FACES LONG PRISON SENTENCE

Jun 10, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

To maintain the security of our homeland, our federal government depends on the services of contractors who work with our intelligence agencies. It is imperative that these contractors employ individuals of high character and integrity for their mission is so important to the security of our nation. Sadly, one such contractor in Augusta, Georgia, Pluribus International Corporation, made a terrible mistake when it hired an unstable 25-year old woman who legally changed her name to Reality Leigh Winner.

Ms. Winner was arrested last weekend for illegally removing a top secret report from a secure government facility and sending it to an Internet based news outlet, The Intercept, which published the material. The National Security Agency document detailed attempts by Russian hackers to compromise U.S. voting software in states across the nation prior to the November 8, 2016 presidential election.

For these alleged activities, Winner was officially charged with leaking classified U.S. documents. If convicted, Winner, who pleaded not guilty, faces a potential sentence of 10 years in federal prison.

First Redskins, Now LSU Tigers are targets of PC Lunatics

Jun 3, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

In our toxic age of political correctness, nothing is immune from liberal political attacks, even the beautiful, majestic and endangered tigers. It seems obvious that tigers should be supported since their numbers are dwindling the in the wild and their natural habitats are constantly shrinking.

Most people probably think it is innocent for Louisiana State University (LSU) to feature tigers as their mascot and display a well maintained “Mike the Tiger” in an air conditioned, deluxe enclosure right outside the football stadium. This $3 million habitat is a mansion that tigers in the wild or any animal for that matter would love to call home.

Unfortunately, all those assumptions are incorrect in an age of stifling political correctness. Today, it seems that the “Fighting Tigers” are racist symbols of oppression to African American students at LSU.

MEDIA LOVES NEW ORLEANS MAYOR STILL FIGHTING CIVIL WAR

May 29, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

As the Robert E. Lee monument was being removed last Friday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu gave a victory speech to a select group of supporters at Gallier Hall, ironically, a former slave auction house.

In the last week, the speech received lavish praise from the liberal media, both locally and nationally. Landrieu received glowing tributes throughout the mainstream news media, from the pages of the liberal Times Picayune in New Orleans to the editorial page of the liberal New York Times.

In fact, on Sunday, Landrieu will achieve the ultimate award bestowed to a liberal politician, an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press.

PRESIDENT MUST DECLARE WAR ON MEDIA, THE TRUE ENEMY

May 21, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

The media smells blood in the Potomac River. They sense the President they hate could be removed from office. Never mind that he won a landslide, winning electoral votes in 31 states. The media hate the President’s agenda and they hate that he defied their wishes and expectations by winning last November.

What has happened since his election is the equivalent of an attempted media coup d’état. According to the Media Research Center (MRC), 89% of the coverage of President Trump by the network news programs of CBS, NBC and ABC has been negative. According to the MRC’s Rich Noyes, “the elite liberal media do not think that Donald Trump is worthy of being president. They don’t like his policies. They don’t like his character.”

TIM ALLEN IS NO LONGER THE LAST MAN STANDING

May 14, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

Despite healthy ratings, ABC promptly cancelled Tim Allen’s popular sitcom, Last Man Standing this week. The show was a successful part of the ABC line-up for six years.  While some media reports claim that ABC cancelled the show due to poor ratings, the truth is that the program was the second highest rated comedy and the third highest rated “scripted” show on the network. In fact, during the final years of the show, Last Man Standing drew an impressive average of 8.1 million viewers each week.

Allen’s real crime was not poor ratings, but having the audacity to announce he was a conservative. He understood the challenge he faced in Hollywood. In an interview with ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel, Allen lamented that “You gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ‘30s Germany.”

HILLARY CLINTON, SOREST LOSER IN HISTORY

May 7, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

It has been six months since the political world was rocked to its core with the upset election of Donald Trump as President. One person who has not gotten over Trump’s victory is his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Of course, in the days before the election, almost every pollster and commentator predicted a Clinton victory. She was overconfident and believed the media spin. Incredibly, she was outperformed by a political novice, who won 306 electoral votes in 31 states, an unexpected landslide.

LEFT WING NEW ORLEANS MAYOR DECLARES WAR ON HISTORY

May 1, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

It is quite ironic that the liberal Democrat Mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, is trying to erase uncomfortable parts of the city’s rich history while simultaneously preparing to celebrate the tri-centennial next year. A world-renowned city known for priceless architecture and monuments is becoming less interesting, all because of Landrieu’s insatiable political aspirations. 

The march toward political correctness began early Monday morning at 1:30 a.m. as masked men in unmarked vehicles with no license plates removed the Liberty Place Monument. It will be the first of four Confederate monuments removed in New Orleans. All of them were declared “nuisances” by the New Orleans City Council in a 6-1 vote after unrelenting pressure from Landrieu. The Liberty Place monument is now being stored in an unknown location. The Mayor has not announced any final plans on what will happen to the monuments or the sites where they were displayed.

TRUMP’S ARTFUL EGYPTIAN DEAL

Apr 22, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

With the release of an American charity worker Aya Hijazi, who was unjustly imprisoned in an Egyptian prison for three years, President Trump’s innovative approach to the Middle East has been vindicated. For weeks, Trump administration officials had been working behind the scenes to secure the release of Ms. Hijazi, her husband and four other humanitarian aid workers. The administration was working to fulfill President Trump’s directive to bring the group back home to the United States.

The negotiations paid off on Thursday when all criminal charges were dropped and the Americans were given permission to leave Egypt and return home to the United States. The President sent his military aide Air Force Major Wes Spurlock to personally oversee the transfer of the former prisoners to American custody. On Friday, the President welcomed Ms. Hijazi to the White House and praised her “great strength” during her time in prison.

MR. PRESIDENT, FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF REAGAN NOT BUSH

Apr 17, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

In 1986, United States President Ronald Reagan authorized military aircraft to unleash a torrent of bombs in Tripoli, Libya to send a strong message to Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The attack was in response to Gaddafi’s involvement in the terrorist bombing of a Berlin disco that resulted in the death of American soldiers.

After the successful attack, terrorists around the world understood that President Reagan was a serious adversary who would not hesitate to utilize the American military if necessary. Thankfully, Reagan did not follow the bombing with an invasion of Libya or additional military actions in the country. He realized that the military should be used sparingly and only when the national security interests of the United States were threatened.
