First,prayers for Sen John McCain. Didn’t like his politics but as a human being will pray for him and his family.I know he’s not well thought of with some veterans and conservatives-but we all need prayer especially through difficult times.BTW.My mother spent most of her later years fighting cancer.It’s devastating especially when you’re in recession and don’t see it coming.I would never hesitate to criticize his politics,policies and actions but going through cancer is no picnic for anyone.(You don’t have to agree with me here. Not willing to lose a friendship over a disagreement).
Second,the main reason I’m writing today is in re to our President and his criticism of Jeff Sessions to the NYTimes. I wish our President would stay away from this rag. They’re no friend. I also wish he had kept his feelings private and spoken directly to Jeff Sessions.That said, I can understand his frustration and anger. He’s a human being and it’s been no small battle since he got elected.
The members of Congress are bought and paid for. I’m not saying by and large that they’re not good people.Many are,some aren’t. We all know that when someone knocks on their door or picks up the phone and offers campaign contributions/support they’re all ears. It’s hard to turn that down;but it does make them beholden to that party.Donald Trump did no such thing.He’s not beholden to anyone except the American people. We knew he was not a politician* when we elected him. He was on the other side of that fence supporting Dems and Republicans both. As a businessman you look out for your own best interests. Now he’s in the ugly world of politics with a business background. He’s not an ideologue.He wants 1 thing: results.He made several promises KEY on the campaign trail.
1.build the wall
2. repeal/replace Obamacare
3.lower and simplify taxes
4. bring justice to the corrupt(DRAIN THE SWAMP)
He intends to keep them. Where are the Republicans?
Let’s see: They found money to pay for transgender surgery in the military.They have yet to defund Planned Parenthood,NPR or the NEA.Pass the repeal and replace they PROMISED 7 yr ago? NOPE.All they did was cry for 7 yr about Obama and swore up and down they had a plan if only they had the Senate,House and White House.Swore the only one standing in their way was Obama. Now President Trump has pen in hand ready to sign and they’re-as Mark Levin put it-imploding.
What else does Pres Trump have to deal with? A hostile media whose one goal is to take him out.We know the Democrat party wants to take him out but there are any number of people in the Republican party that would gladly let them. Then you have Antifa,the Resistance,Deep State,Soros,Obama himself and the Obama holdovers wreaking havoc.Add to that the Russia B.S. story and Mueller witch hunt.
In spite of all the opposition look at what he’s managed to accomplish in 6 months. So he’s not as politically ‘savvy’ as some people think he should be(meaning do all the dirty work behind closed doors)but i didn’t think he was going to be a politically ‘savvy’ President anyway.I also intend to support him 100% all the way. There’s too many dark forces working on a soft coup. We’re either on his side or as Andrew Breitbart once said,”you’re on the other side.”
You can knock me for tolerating his flaws.I don’t really care as long as he’s not doing anything criminal or cheating on his wife ala Bill Clinton.The only thing that would destroy his presidency is his base abandoning him. We can’t.This is our last shot people.We have to hang tough and win.You see,the opposing forces won’t stab him in the back outright.Not that they wouldn’t like to(ie.impeach,force resignation).They’ll do death by a 1k cuts if they have to.Does that mean looking the other way at some of his flaws? Yep.In the larger scheme of things they’re insignificant.The other side is dangerous.The only one that’s ever really stood up to them IS Trump.
It also means supporting the people in Congress that support him and OUR agenda.Trump and his base are simpatico.All the folks are saying to Congress is,support the person WE elected and KEEP YOUR PROMISES.You support him,we’ll support you.It’s that simple.You go ‘never Trump’ on us-you’re TOAST. It would be something to see the people we put into office[ year after year] looking out for someone besides themselves and their next election.KEEP YOUR WORD Congress. PERIOD.
*Candidate Trump could communicate with the American people.In fact we were all on the same page. On the other hand he was so much so NOT a politician he didn’t get the gist of the convoluted delegate system(neither did I)-enter Paul Manafort who DID.
