Musings on the Week
February 16, 2019
Immigration – “Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” Theodore Roosevelt.
Politics – The Republican 2020 political strategy should be to debunk the socialism myth and expose each program in the Democrat “Green New Deal” as ineffective, unachievable and unaffordable, and then unveil next steps in the MAGA plan to “Build on America’s Success.”
Politics – No matter how much the Democrats demonize President Trump, they will fail in direct proportion to their openness about their radical leftist agenda.
Politics – It seems that Americans on the left and on the right now occupy “alternate realities,” and those of us on the right can only pity the Left their self-induced (but media-abetted) culture of doom, aggrievement and vilification.
Politics – Since Congress was unable to fund building the border wall in its budget resolutions, President Trump was forced to resort to declaring a “national emergency” to get it done.
Politics – The “Green New Deal” wish list demonstrates the absurd Democrat future: a meatless, car-less, plane-less existence where we shuffle to work every day so that we can pay our gargantuan energy bills and support those “unwilling to work.”
Politics – The Democrat political strategy is attack Trump with “death by a thousand cuts”, from Congressional investigations and Southern District of New York investigations, meanwhile distracting Democrats from doing anything useful, or politically viability.
Politics – Ilhan Omar (D-Minneapoli-stan), Rashida Tlaib (D-Dearborn-istan) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Illegalalien-istan) are the poster children for the new Alinskyite-Socialists.
Politics – Antifa is the 21st century equivalent of the 19th century Ku Klux Klan, providing the terrorist action wing of the Democrat Party to enforce unpalatable policies.
Politics – How many times must we hear that no evidence was found of any collusion between Trump and the Russians on the 2016 election before Congress admits the politically inspired Mueller investigation was a complete waste of time and resources?
Politics – It is clear that the U.S. government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign, with the Obama administration using its power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump.
Media – The mainstream media pretends that the President is universally hated overseas, but Trump is actually a hero to the growing number of anti-globalist populists around the world.
Immigration – “Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.” Theodore Roosevelt.
Labor – There are more than 91,000 federal employees who out-earn the governor of their states, even some painters, mechanics, electricians, and welders who out-earn governors.
Healthcare – The Democrat Medicare-for-All focus is on insuring everyone, but does not guarantee access to actual medical care, which is where every single-payer system fails.
Healthcare – The public has already been burnt once with ObamaCare broken promises, so we now know that “Medicare-for-All” will abolish private insurance for everyone.
Emergency – There is something wrong with the process to declare a National Emergency when these “temporary” Executive Orders remain open for decades, with no end in sight.
Civil Rights – The Trump administration is withdrawing support for the “disparate-impact” theory which asserts that statistical disparities can be proof of discrimination when no intention is clear, which has been misused to find racial bias where it does not exist.
Sexuality – Gender theory is a tragic hoax perpetrated by angry, jealous leftists threatened by the self-evident truth of human nature, formed man and woman together.
Immigration – “There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” Theodore Roosevelt.
Foreign Policy - "America First" is not a policy of hate or exclusivity, but rather, it means that we look out for our own first, and thus are better able to help others.
