Media Bias Against Trump

If you need any evidence that the major news media is out to harm and discredit President Trump you only have to look at the amount of time the network news programs spent covering Trump’s recent battle with the media during yesterday’s new conference. NBC and ABC spent 70% of their air time bashing President Trump and twisting his comments to mean something other than what he said. CBS devoted the entire evening, 100% of their broadcast to the task of attacking Trump. It’s so very clear to me that the major news media in this country will do whatever it takes to demonize the Trump administration. They started out yesterday by badgering Trump with the same question over and…

Media Deception

I hate the media and their continued efforts to show President Trump in a bad light. We’re being threatened by this nut case in North Korea. Several countries (including those that we aren’t all that friendly with) have joined together in initiating new strong sanctions against the rouge regime, which has Kim Jong Unl lashing out toward the United States with what we all hope are idle threats. However when President Trump comments: “He (Kim Jong Un) has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before” the media conveniently leaves off the part that explains that he is responding to a…

Obamacare Lives On

The third attempt by the Republican controlled Senate at getting something started that will end the nightmare we call Obamacare failed last night. John McCain was one of the three traitors on the conservative side of the isle and apparently the deciding vote that put the measure down to defeat. Personally I believe that John McCain has become an embarrassment for the Republican Party and a slap in the face to conservatives all across our great land that are expecting the people they have put in power to do what they campaigned on and derail the liberal push toward a single payer system once and for all. The master plan B is to now sit back and watch our health…

Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Special Election

Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in the special election to fill the seat vacated when Tom Price took a position on President Trump’s Cabinet. The way the campaign was financed really disturbs me because every one in the media seems to think its okay for funds to pour into any political race uninhibited from outside sources. In this case the Democrat outspent the Republican by a heavy margin and they still lost, which I hope gnaws at the democrat party for long time. I thought since campaign finance seems to be the topic of the day that this would be as good a time as any to restate my idea for campaign finance reform… something the politicians have…

Paris Accord

President Trump has pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord and the liberal Trump haters are loosing their minds. They want us to believe that it’s all about the environment. If they were listening to the President speak yesterday when he made the announcement that he was pulling us out of the agreement then they choose to ignore every thing he said. President Trump’s decision isn’t because he doesn’t care about the environment, which he reiterated several times during his announcement; it was made because he’s putting a stop to the rest of the world using us for a door mat. The agreement is hugely lopsided against the United States both in regulations and monetary concerns. If…

Mark Zuckerberg Preaching Utopia

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, during his Harvard Commencement Speech said; “Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract. We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” Personally I think it’s dangerous to be filling our graduate’s minds with the idea that the government should just give everyone a basic living wage… especially when there is nothing expected of them in return. We’re raising a generation of lazy uninspired idealistic morons who think…

Bethune-Cookman University Commencement

Betsy DeVoss, the new Education Secretary under President Donald Trump was invited to speak at the graduation ceremony at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach. In case you don’t know Bethuce-Cookman is one of the leading primarily black collages in the southeast. As might be expected the student body along with several of this countries top race baiting organizations went berserk over the invitation and the protests only intensified as the press escalated their coverage. I believe the real problem runs far deeper than the liberal objections to Secretary DeVoss’ policy beliefs. I truly believe that most of the student’s objection was to a white person giving their commencement address. After all they are attending a race based university… where the stereo…

Total Eclipse Forever Stamp

The US Postal Service is outdoing even it own capacity to waste money by coming out with a stamp that has a picture that changes when heat is applied to it. These unique postage stamps have a picture of a total solar eclipse on them that changes to show the detail of the moon’s surface when you apply the heat from a finger or thumb. High tech and all so slick, however I’d like to know how much money the postal service spent developing and perfecting this printing technique and how much more each stamp is costing the post office to produce… because they sure aren’t selling them for more than the normal stamp. Why should any of this concern…

Trump’s Tax Plan

President Trump unveiled the details of his tax reform legislation and I liked almost everything that was said. Now as long as we don’t get a few brain dead legislators on our side of the isle we might actually see some real progress in getting our stagnate economy moving in the right direction again. The one thing that I heard said today which bugs the crap out of me is when they mention that back prior to the Regan tax cuts the top personal tax rate was 90% without following that up with some form of statement that the 90% was on a much lower taxable income figure due to the almost endless itemized deductions that were allowed at the…

Nuclear Blast Simulation Over Manhatten

Several agencies from federal, state and city emergency services will come together this Monday April 24, 2017 to participate in a 3 day mock drill that will simulate a nuclear blast over the island of Manhattan. It’s being called Operation Gotham Shield. So just how do you simulate the devastation and loss of life that would result in a nuclear bomb being detonated over one of our nations most populated cities? Do you get everyone inside a two mile radius of ground zero to lie down and play dead because that is what would happen. There would be no emergency response anywhere near ground zero because the emergency responders would also be dead. The devastation would stretch out for up to a hundred…
