TO WIN IN 2020 TRUMP MUST BUILD THE WALL

Jan 19, 2019 — Jeff Crouere

TO WIN IN 2020 TRUMP MUST BUILD THE WALLIn his address to the nation, President Trump once again offered an olive branch to the Democrats. In exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall, he gave his support for a three-year extension of protection for the 700,000 immigrants who arrived in the country as children. This group was protected from deportation by former President Obama in his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

His previous offers to negotiate and compromise have been rejected by Democrats, who are being held captive by their far-left wing, which supports open borders. The President may soon come to the realization that the only way to end the government shutdown is to give up on a deal with the Democrats and declare a national emergency and start building the wall on his own.


The Democrat Freak Show has Begun

The Democrat Freak Show has Begun
Now that the mid-terms are over, and the new Congress has started, political observers have already started to focus on the 2020 presidential campaign. Every election cycle it begins earlier, especially in this case, because the Democrats and their supporters in the media are obsessed with defeating President Donald Trump.


IN CONGRESS, THE INMATES ARE NOW RUNNING THE ASYLUM

IN CONGRESS, THE INMATES ARE NOW RUNNING THE ASYLUM
The 116th Congress will be one for the record books, but not in a positive way. Sadly, the United States House of Representatives is now controlled by the Democratic Party for the first time in eight years.

The Republicans lost their grip on power for a variety of reasons including their refusal to enact the agenda endorsed by the American people in the 2016 election. As a result, Democrats have the spotlight and the ability to consider horrible ideas such as the “Green New Deal” proposal being floated by 29-year-old socialist superstar U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to raise the top income tax rate from 37%to 70% to move the country toward zero carbon emissions. If any of her proposals are ever enacted into law, Venezuela here we come!


MELANIA TRUMP IS THE RINGSIDE POLITICS CHAMPION OF THE YEAR

MELANIA TRUMP IS THE RINGSIDE POLITICS CHAMPION OF THE YEAR
Every year on the Ringside Politics program, we award our “Turkey” of the year during Thanksgiving and our “Champion” of the year in late December. This year, the “winner” of our turkey award was House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fitting choice for such a failed leader. However, our “Champion” award was a more difficult selection. During the past year, many fine people distinguished themselves in a positive way Finally, after input from our great listening audience, our decision was clear. For many reasons, including her grace and style under unrelenting criticism and pressure, First Lady Melania Trump was chosen as our Ringside Politics Champion of the Year.


Time For United States to Police Our Own Neighborhood

Time For United States to Police Our Own Neighborhood
In November of 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump to be our nation’s 45th President. He campaigned on a platform of bringing our troops back home from Syria and Afghanistan and focusing on an “America First” foreign policy. By announcing he was removing our 2,000 troops from Syria, the President is following through on another campaign promise.

Syria is a hodgepodge of multiple terrorist groups, regional forces, foreign troops and religious fighters exerting influence. Our forces have been working with the Kurdish fighters in the Northeast section of the country fighting Islamic State terrorists. The operation has been an amazing success and the Islamic State has suffered tremendous losses. In both Iraq and Syria, the terrorists now control only 1% of the land they used to dominate.


BABY, IT’S PC OUTSIDE

BABY, IT’S PC OUTSIDE
In this holiday season, the leftists who constantly promote politically correct (PC) causes have been working overtime. Instead of just enjoying this special time of the year with their families and friends, liberal activists have been on a search and destroy mission, targeting American cultural classics.

Their first victim was the innocent television special that airs on ABC, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. This cartoon has been broadcast for 45 years with no controversy; however, in our country today millions of people are now “woke.”  After the show aired in November, social media erupted with critics wondering why the show’s only black character “Franklin” was seated alone on one side of the table while three white characters were on the other side during Thanksgiving dinner.


Et tu Tucker?

Et tu Tucker?
Any American who follows the news coverage of President Trump knows that the mainstream media is completely opposed to him. Their coverage of his administration is biased, relentlessly negative and needlessly nasty. These haters could not even take a break from their Trump bashing during the funeral of former President George H. W. Bush. Liberal activists, masquerading as journalists on MSNBC and CNN, criticized the President for such trivia as folding his arms during the service and not singing from the hymnal like the other former Presidents. This pettiness is typical from a media that is afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.


BUILD THE BORDER WALL OR SAY GOODBYE TO AMERICA

Dec 2, 2018 — Jeff Crouere

BUILD THE BORDER WALL OR SAY GOODBYE TO AMERICA
We have heard the chants for three years, “Build the Wall!” It was the number one reason why Americans elected Donald Trump as President in 2016. Unfortunately, it is the most glaring unfulfilled promise of the Trump presidency.

Although the President wants a border wall, he needs Congress to fund the construction. Until now, Congress has only provided an anemic $1.6 billion for the border wall. This pathetic amount is nowhere near the $25 billion that is actually needed to properly build a wall that will stop the influx of illegal aliens.


RINGSIDE POLITICS TURKEY OF THE YEAR:  HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN

RINGSIDE POLITICS TURKEY OF THE YEAR: HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN
Throughout our 20 years of Ringside Politics TV and radio programs, we have established an annual contest of awarding our “Turkey of the Year.” This Thanksgiving tradition was started to recognize those individuals who distinguished themselves in a particularly idiotic way. It seems appropriate since turkeys are commonly regarded as one of the dumbest animals on the planet.

Every year, the competition is fierce for there are many deserving celebrities and politicians. Previous winners have included filmmaker Michael Moore, former House Speakers John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi, former President Barack Obama and former New Orleans Mayor, current federal inmate, Ray Nagin.


TIME TO REIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS CORPS

TIME TO REIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS CORPS
In the aftermath of U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly’s ruling that reinstated the White House press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta, the President outlined some overdue changes that will be implemented. Hereafter, the White House will be “writing up rules and regulations,” according to the President. He also predicted that “if they don’t listen to the rules and regulations, we’ll end up back in court, and we’ll win.”

This is necessary after the grandstanding Acosta made a mockery of the President’s post mid-term election news conference. It was another example of Acosta’s bad behavior. After asking several questions, the President tried to move on to another reporter. Incredibly, Acosta refused to relinquish the microphone to the intern who was trying to allow another reporter to ask a question.


A NEW LOW FOR CNN’S PRIMA DONNA

A NEW LOW FOR CNN’S PRIMA DONNA
The President’s first post midterm election news conference was a rowdy spectacle at the White House. It was an 87-minute marathon with almost universally hostile questions from liberal reporters and combative answers from the President.

The entire episode exposed the horrible relationship that exists between the mostly liberal media and President Trump. This type of craziness would have never happened during the Obama presidency. Of course, the media did not ask tough questions to President Obama and gave him the type of respect that President Trump never receives. During the Obama years, the media acted like obedient lap dogs, but, in this administration, they have transformed into rabid attack dogs.


Make Media Miserable Again

Make Media Miserable Again
If you are ever feeling unhappy and need a lift in spirits, a great idea is to go back and watch the online videos showing the liberal media literally crying after the election of Donald Trump as President in 2016. Their reactions are hysterical as the so-called experts in the media were totally dumbfounded that Trump was elected.

In the weeks before the 2016 election, network news anchors and reporters were convinced that Hillary Clinton would win. They were confidently predicting that Trump could do nothing to change the outcome of the election. In fact, in the early part of the Election Night coverage, there was celebration and eager anticipation of a Hillary Clinton victory speech.


Secure The Border Before It Is Too Late

Oct 28, 2018 — Jeff Crouere

SECURE THE BORDER BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
With an army of 10,000 migrants closing in on the Southern border, The White House is considering a range of options including a temporary halt to asylum. On Friday, it was reported that approximately 1,000 troops would be deployed to the border to provide additional resources to the U.S. Border Patrol. While this will be a good first step, it is woefully inadequate. The entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico should be secured with a heavy presence of our military and National Guard,

The time is now for President Donald Trump to take dramatic action to secure the border. Any bold steps he takes will have the support of the American people. For decades, Americans have been promised border security, but we have never received anything but hollow rhetoric from both parties.


No Hope For Democrats

No Hope For Democrats
Over the next several weeks, Americans will be going to the polls in the most eagerly anticipated and consequential midterm election in our nation’s history. Voters will decide whether to continue the President’s agenda which includes cutting regulations and taxes, boosting our military, renegotiating our trade deals, and focusing on border security.

This agenda has produced incredible economic results in less than two years. This week, the World Economic Forum rated the United States as the most competitive economy among the 140 countries ranked. This is the first time since 2008 that the United States has topped this important list. This report follows an amazing list of positive economic indicators in recent weeks. The United States is enjoying an incredibly low unemployment rate, robust economic growth, and stellar consumer and small business confidence. It is a great time to be living in our country.


BETO IS AS PHONY AS BARACK

Beto is as Phony as Barack
In 2008, the national news media swooned over the prospect of an African American President of the United States. The Democratic Party’s presidential nominee was freshman U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL). He was treated to kid glove treatment by the media. There were no hard questions and no real examination of his background. He was carried into the Oval Office on the shoulders of an adoring press. He spouted the slogan “Hope and Change” and the media, Hollywood and millions of poorly informed American voters swooned.


THE TRUMP ECONOMIC MIRACLE

Oct 8, 2018 — Jeff Crouere

THE TRUMP ECONOMIC MIRACLE
The U.S. economy is the strongest in the world and it shows no signs of slowing down. On Friday, another incredible economic report was released as the September unemployment rate dropped to 3.7%, the lowest since 1969. Among Hispanics and Latinos, the unemployment rate was only 4.5%, the all-time lowest level in history, while among African Americans, the unemployment rate was 6.0%, near the record low.

Not only are people finding work, but Americans are earning more. Compared to September of 2017, wages increased 2.8%, while the typical work week remained steady at 34.5 hours. While only 134,000 new jobs were created in September, the employment numbers for August were revised upward to 270,000. Thus, over the last year, an average of 201,000 new jobs were created each month.


HIS FINEST HOUR

HIS FINEST HOUR
It had been a long day at the U.S. Senate as the Judiciary Committee heard from both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Millions of Americans witnessed an incredible spectacle as both people claimed 100% confidence in their recollection of events.

During the questioning of Dr. Ford, Republicans turned over the duties to an Arizona prosecutor who seemed to miss many opportunities to highlight discrepancies in the statements of the accuser. Of course, the Senate Democrats spent almost all their time praising Dr. Ford for her courage.


Kavanaugh Should Respond Like Clarence Thomas

Sep 22, 2018 — Jeff Crouere

Kavanaugh Should Respond Like Clarence Thomas
In 1991, Clarence Thomas, nominated for the Supreme Court by President George H. W. Bush, was facing unfair and unprecedented attacks from partisan Democrats.

A former co-worker, Anita Hill, had accused Thomas of making unwanted sexual advances, discussing pornography at work and making a crude reference to a pubic hair on a can of coke. Once her allegations were revealed to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Hill was invited to give her testimony. The nation was riveted as Hill, the alleged victim, totally trashed the good name of a man who had spent a lifetime building his reputation.


DEMOCRATS HOPING FOR ANOTHER ANITA HILL

DEMOCRATS HOPING FOR ANOTHER ANITA HILL
During this age of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats sink to new levels of lunacy every day.

As Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to encourage liberals to harass Trump administration officials and supporters, several crazed activists have gone too far. This week, a GOP office in Wyoming was set on fire by an arsonist, likely a far-left Democrat extremist.


TRUMP TOP TEN TO-DO LIST

TRUMP TOP TEN TO-DO LIST
To:    President Trump
From: Jeff Crouere, Trump Delegate, LA Co-Chair, Talk Show Host
Date:  September 8, 2018
Re:    Helpful Suggestions

President Trump, it has been a rough few weeks. The “Deep State” has literally thrown everything including the kitchen sink at you, but, thankfully, you are still standing.

First it was the betrayal from a woman who you made into a reality TV star, Omarosa Manigault Newman. Then it was the dual blow of the Michael Cohen guilty plea and allegations that you directed him to supposedly make illegal payments to women alleging affairs. Simultaneously, your former campaign manager Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight counts and might face the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison.
