PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STRANGE ENDORSEMENT

Sep 23, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

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.


BOYCOTT ESPN

Sep 16, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

In a hectic world, millions of Americans enjoy the pastime of watching football on the weekends. It is a nice distraction from the pressures of everyday life. Unfortunately, it is becoming more difficult to just enjoy a game any longer as, sadly, politics has entered the world of sports in a big way. This season, NFL players are continuing to protest police brutality and racial discrimination by sitting, kneeling or giving a “black power” salute during the National Anthem. This has infuriated patriotic Americans who view these protests as disrespectful toward their country. It is no doubt a contributing factor toward the declining ratings of the NFL this season.

As NFL ratings have deteriorated, one television network that is particularly suffering is ESPN. In the heyday of cable television, ESPN was considered one of the star networks. It featured great sports programming, compelling hosts and powerful interviews with athletes.


LOOK IN THE MIRROR HILLARY

Sep 9, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

Next week, the country will have to deal with another hurricane disaster as well as a national disaster, the unveiling of Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened. In the book, the former First Lady and Secretary of State blames a variety of culprits for her upset defeat. She is clearly a woman who is bitter and has not accepted her loss to a political novice, Donald Trump.

In the presidential race, Clinton had almost every advantage. Throughout the campaign, she outspent Trump by almost a two to one margin. With almost four decades of political experience and a husband who served as President, Clinton should have easily defeated the maverick businessman. In addition, Clinton was supported by almost all of the national news media. She was given very favorable media treatment, while Trump was regularly savaged by reporters who clearly hated him.


PRESIDENT TRUMP LEARNED LESSONS OF KATRINA

Sep 2, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

On August 29, 2005, monster Hurricane Katrina slammed into Louisiana and Mississippi. In the catastrophe that resulted, over 80% of New Orleans was flooded and 1,836 people in Louisiana and Mississippi died. The storm caused over $150 billion in damages and forced thousands of New Orleans and Gulf Coast residents to relocate, some permanently. Prior to Hurricane Katrina, the population of New Orleans was 484,000, while today only 391,000 people live in the city. It forever scarred a 300-year old city that has faced a number of challenges, but none greater than Hurricane Katrina.

Before the disastrous storm hit the city, President George W. Bush was at his ranch in Crawford, Texas enjoying a four week vacation. On the day Hurricane Katrina smashed into the Mississippi coast, Bush took a brief break from his vacation to visit Phoenix, AZ to promote his Medicare prescription drug legislation. He also presented a cake and posed for pictures with U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who was celebrating his 69th birthday.


WITH FRIENDS LIKE GARY COHN, WHO NEEDS ENEMIES?

Aug 26, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

President Donald Trump is attacked on a daily basis by his enemies in the media, the political establishment, and the deep state. He is under unrelenting assault, more so than any other U.S. President in recent history.

Usually, even a besieged President can count on support within the ranks of his top advisers. While they may disagree in private, top administration officials have an obligation to present a unified front to the American people. However, when a President starts getting attacked by a member of his own administration, it is time to fire that untrustworthy individual and demand loyalty of everyone else.


TRUMP’S ENEMIES ARE A CONFEDERACY OF COWARDS

Aug 20, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

A funny thing happened on the way to the Trump impeachment, the Russia story has vanished. Despite months of hyperventilating about the President being involved in nefarious “Russian collusion,” no evidence was actually produced. Despite a biased media, a biased special counsel and a legal team selected from the donor roll of the Democratic Party, Donald Trump is still President and still claiming that the whole campaign is a “witch hunt.”

With the Russian story going nowhere, the anti-Trump media, along with their deep state and political establishment colleagues, have found a new “cause celebre,” the President’s response to the Charlottesville, Virginia riots of last Saturday.


PRESIDENTIAL HOPES FOR NEW ORLEANS MAYOR GO DOWN THE DRAIN

Aug 13, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

For months, the liberal news media has been championing New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu as a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020.

Landrieu was praised for his “courageous leadership” in taking down four Confederate monuments in New Orleans earlier this year. Never mind that it was an issue manufactured by Landrieu to create racial division and publicity. In the end, the monument removal cost $2.1 million dollars, precious funds that were needed elsewhere.


MUTINY ON THE POTOMAC

Aug 6, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

The world is witnessing a political mutiny that is unprecedented in the annals of American history. Donald Trump was duly and overwhelmingly elected President of the United States on Tuesday November 8, 2016. He received the votes of almost 63 million Americans, the highest total ever for a Republican Party presidential candidate. Through a remarkably targeted campaign, he won electoral votes in 31 states, destroying his opponent in the Electoral College. For any other President, his opponents would have given him a “honeymoon,” and allowed his administration to get started and implement his agenda.


DITCH MITCH

Jul 29, 2017 — Jeff Crouere

Yesterday morning, the rationale for why conservatives across the country should support Republican Party candidates and enable the GOP to control Congress was completely shattered. By losing a 49-51 vote, the Republican led U.S. Senate failed a pass a “skinny” repeal of Obamacare, condemning the nation to more suffering from the horrors of socialized medicine.

It was a stunning failure for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who was tasked with crafting legislation that would attract at least 50 Republican votes. In the end, McConnell was only able to muster 49 Republican votes, so the reform measure failed. Three turncoat Republicans joined all 48 Democrats to defeat the best chance to repeal at least some of the most offensive aspects of Obamacare.


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.
