Closing Thought–03Apr19

I have been accused of hating Pres. Trump…..that is a mis-statement by whoever repeats it.

The truth is I dislike the man and his arrogance……I have always disliked arrogance wherever I find it and I found it in this person who pretends to be a president of the US…..

What arrogance I would imagine that some micro brain individual may be asking themselves (for they will not ask me)…..so I give you an example…..

President Trump continued his Mueller report victory lap with a rally in Michigan on Thursday night, where he ripped into the “fake news media,” Democrats, and the FBI, among others, and declared that “the Russia hoax is finally dead.” At the Grand Rapids rally—his first since Attorney General William Barr released his summary of the special counsel’s report—the president slammed DC “elites” and listed ways in which he sees himself as better than them. “I have a better education than them, I’m smarter than them, I went to the best schools; they didn’t. Much more beautiful house, much more beautiful apartment. Much more beautiful everything. And I’m president and they’re not,” he told the packed arena, per Fox News.

You see I do not believe a word of this……why? If he was truly all those things he would not need to taunt his stuff.

I will call out arrogance wherever I find it….and I find a shit load of it in the person we call president.

You may like to belittled and talked down to but I do not and I refuse to stand by while some blow hard bumps his gums with bullshit.

Enough said!

TTFN!

Feel The Bern (Again)

2020 is quickly approaching and the energy in the MSM is at fever pitch already…..they have 2 new guy candidates that they, MSM, can fixate on…..they have a bundle of women running they can lavish praise upon….and they have “Uncle Joe” Biden that they can always dredge up when the news of the day is slow…..finally they have an old white Jew that they can use as a punching bag by keeping the age old BS of socialism front and center instead of his policies that are truly popular with the voter.

2016 saw the rise of Bernie to everyone’s surprise…so much so that he challenged the Clinton machine and damn near beat her pants off (no insult or pun intended) so much so that the DNC had to resort to trickery to keep him from winning the nomination….but like I say that was 2016 and we are entering into a new election cycle.

In 2016 his appeal to younger voters was something that did not get the attention it deserved and so far looks like 2020 will be no different…

A new national poll of young Democratic voters released Monday shows Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the crowded 2020 field with a double-digit lead over the second most popular candidate, Joe Biden.

According to the survey by the Institute of Politics (IOP) at the Harvard Kennedy School, the U.S. senator from Vermont is preferred by 31 percent of likely Democratic primary voters between the ages of 18 and 29 years old.

While Biden came in second place with 20 percent and Beto O’Rourke of Texas nabbed the third spot with 10 percent, none of the other candidates garnered more than single digits in the poll. After O’Rourke, IOP noted the following support for the remaining candidates:

Sen. Kamala Harris (5%), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (4%), Sen. Cory Booker (3%), Andrew Yang (2%), Mayor Pete Buttigieg (1%), former Sec. Julian Castro (1%), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (1%), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (1%), Gov. Jay Inslee (1%) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (1%). Several other candidates polled at less than one percent at this early stage.

The big news recently with the MSM was that candidate Buttigieg hauled in $7 million in the first quarter and they went on and on about how important this cash will be……and yet Bernie brought in more than double and his totals were not even a mention……

Bernie Sanders is the third Democratic candidate to release first-quarter fundraising figures, and he easily jumps to No. 1. Sanders says he pulled in $18.2 million in the first three months of the year, with 88% coming from donations of $200 or less, reports the New York Times. Earlier, Kamala Harris announced she raised $12 million and Pete Buttigieg $7 million. A big remaining question: How much will Beto O’Rourke get? Like Sanders, he had raised about $6 million on his campaign’s first day. Politico notes that Sanders surpassed his fundraising from the first quarter of his 2016 campaign, when he pulled in $15 million.

Bernie is still as popular as he was in the 2016 cycle…..but will he be as successful as he was last time and will the DNC play the same games it played in 2016?

The MSM will avoid Bernie as long as there are as many candidates that they can use as an excuse….this trend of popularity may not continue but for now the younger voters are…..Feeling The Bern!

 

That Pesky Health Care

After the Mueller report was released to the AG and he did his best to make it fit with the Trump bullshit for the last two years then the president started his usual crap about his perfect health care and that everyone would be covered regardless….a health plan the entire nation will love has NEVER come about…..empty promises and lies about Obamacare is all the nation ever got from this poser……and as sad as that is it is better than what we got from the GOP…..the same GOP that voted 50+ times to try and repeal Obamacare…..these same cowards have NOTHING to say and when they talk crickets is all we hear.

And as of recently Mr. Trump has done what he does best…..he waffles and changes direction……

President Trump shifted strategy on ObamaCare in a series of late-night tweets: He still hates it, but he won’t push for a Republican alternative until after the 2020 election, reports Bloomberg. “Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work,” he wrote. “Premiums & deductibles are far too high.” He said the GOP is working on a better, cheaper solution, adding, “Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House.” The tweets come after a week in which Trump’s White House got newly aggressive against ObamaCare, first by arguing in court that the entire law should be declared unconstitutional. Then Trump himself promised that the GOP “will soon be known as the party of health care.”


However, Politico reports that GOP leaders made clear to the White House they did not want to make ObamaCare a focal part of the 2020 election, because they were hurt on the issue in the midterms. As Bloomberg points out, the law has gradually become more popular with voters. Democrats already have seized on the administration’s aggressive court strategy and are planning a resolution to condemn an “unacceptable assault on the health care of the American people,” per USA Today. That would force House Republicans, assuming they back the president, to go on the record as agreeing with the strategy to kill the entire law. One thing not changing: Both Trump and Republicans are still going after Democrats’ “Medicare for All” initiatives.

I love it when this poser says the GOP will soon be known as the party of health care……seriously? The party that has not had an alternative to Obamacare in 9 years.exercise or smoking….cannot get any more pathetic……

The president (I use the term loosely) is afraid of losing so he will waffle whenever it suits him…regardless what he has promised in the past….it is always about the knee jerk response and then the back pedal……typical coward tactics.

Thanx to the GOP the most important factors determining a person’s health is not diet or exercise of even smoking…..the most important factors are social class and race. Period!

The one thing that the GOP and this president do not realize is that health care is the single most important issue to most Americans.

Time for Americans to vote their need.

Leadership We Americans Deserve

Let me say before I begin….it is amazing how many GOPers are jumping on the Obamacare bandwagon….when just short of a decade ago it was socialism at its worse. This illustrates just how cowardly the elected representatives truly are…….

That brings me to the batch of freshman representatives and how they are an illustration of the representation we truly deserve…..not the old fart cowards that have ruled the Congress for over 50 years.

For instance…AOC…..this woman shows the balls that the men in Congress cannot muster……she is an excellent rep of her district…….

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken Washington, D.C by storm.

She successfully ran an insurgent, grass-roots Congressional campaign. She is exceptionally bright. She is incredibly media savvy. She is hugely charismatic, because she is telegenic and photogenic, but also because she consistently seems to be a sincere, authentic, and truly nice and caring human being. In an age of bullshit, she is “real.” And she has the courage of her convictions.

She has thus quickly been embraced by the left, reviled by the right, and treated with enormous skepticism by the center.

AOC is no moderate. She candidly denounces injustice. She celebrates activists who confront fellow members of Congress (like Ana Maria Archila, who confronted Senator Jeff Flake during the Kavanaugh hearings) and even visits protestors conducting a sit-in at the office of her party’s legislative leader, Nancy Pelosi. And she advances bold new visionary policy ideas, like the Green New Deal, which she not only helped to catapult to political center stage, but managed to get senior Democratic leaders, such as Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, to co-sponsor.

 
She scares the crap out of the old white guys in both parties and the corporate controlled officials like the Dems leadership…..AOC is showing Americans what happens when we elect real fighters and forego the cowardice of the Congressional leadership.
 
She gets my vote and more candidates should follow her lead and we would have a great country.
