America Took A Step Back
On Tuesday night this week America took a huge step back. In 2016 we took a step forward in the process of restoring America, but they couldn’t seem to get running on all eight cylinders. Speaker Paul Ryan has been bent on initiating his agenda over President Trumps. He couldn’t get the funding for the wall together because he didn’t want the wall funded. His donors are open border people. He stabbed the American people in the back on that. The stupidity of Tuesday night is putting the Democrats in charge of the purse strings gives us an absolute guarantee that all we will have for the next two years are investigations, attempts to raise taxes, attempts to impeach Trump, no border security and we may even see an attempt to impeach Kavanaugh.
The frustration of voters is understandable. But to put the Party that has no interest at all in the American people in charge of the House is about as dumb as it gets. What needed to happen is replace the Republicans that refused to support Trumps agenda. Sometimes I look at the actions of the voters and I see why we have idiots in D.C. They switch the Parties without changing the members of those Parties. You can only make a change when you change what you are doing. Einstein said the definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
Our Founders intended for there to be a steady stream of different people holding office to keep everything fresh and new, but we have members in Congress that have been there for 30-40 years. Then we have a Congress full of lawyers and according to the real 13th Amendment, published in at least 18 separate publications by 11 different States and territories from 1819 to 1868, declares that lawyers were prohibited from serving in government. But somehow that amendment was quietly removed and replaced by a slavery amendment. But that is a story for another time.
What is totally baffling to me is how uninformed or how apathetic the American voting base is. When we look at all of our history, we can see that Democrats have never had good economic policies, ever. Woodrow Wilson gave us the Federal Reserve which is run by foreign banks controlled by the Rothchilds and other foreign entities. Franklin D. Roosevelt turned an eighteen-month recession into a ten-year depression. Granted he came in three years after it started, and Herbert Hoover didn’t do what was necessary to reverse the recession either but we didn’t come out of that recession until WWII in 1941, nine years after Roosevelt took office. His own economic advisor said his policies didn’t work and later studies have proved that his policies prolonged the depression. After scrutinizing Roosevelt’s record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.
“Why the Great Depression lasted so long has always been a great mystery, and because we never really knew the reason, we have always worried whether we would have another 10- to 15-year economic slump,” said Ohanian, vice chair of UCLA’s Department of Economics. “We found that a relapse isn’t likely unless lawmakers gum up a recovery with ill-conceived stimulus policies.”
In an article in the August issue of the Journal of Political Economy, Ohanian and Cole blame specific anti-competition and pro-labor measures that Roosevelt promoted and signed into law June 16, 1933.
“President Roosevelt believed that excessive competition was responsible for the Depression by reducing prices and wages, and by extension reducing employment and demand for goods and services,” said Cole, also a UCLA professor of economics. “So he came up with a recovery package that would be unimaginable today, allowing businesses in every industry to collude without the threat of antitrust prosecution and workers to demand salaries about 25 percent above where they ought to have been, given market forces. The economy was poised for a beautiful recovery, but that recovery was stalled by these misguided policies.”
John Kennedy did do what was needed. He cut taxes and government spending, which is why he could not run as a Democrat today. Jimmy Carter did the same thing that FDR did, raised taxes and increased government spending and them over regulated businesses. Recovery didn’t come until Reagan was elected, cut taxes, some government spending and de-regulated businesses so they could operate again. This caused an economic boom that lasted into the new century twenty years later and was given a boost with tax cuts by George W. Bush. Bus, however increased spending way too much.
Obama came on the scene and repeated the stupidity of Carter and FDR of spending, increased taxed and burdened business with regulations like no other president. He averaged about 65 new regulations a day for every day he was in office that cost businesses well over $20 billion a year!
I bring up all this to point out that this is the only kind of garbage governance that you are going to get from the Democrat Party because it isn’t about the American people with them, it’s only about them. Example, the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. It wasn’t about his character flaws because there are many within the Democrat Party on that committee that has much worse character flaws that Kavanaugh has. Kamal Harris slept her way up the political ladder with married men, Cory Booker sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in college, by his own admission, Diane Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her pay role for over twenty years, and Richard Blumenthal faked being a Viet Nam veteran for years. The question here is why do we vote these people back into power when all they do is make sure they benefit at your expense?
Consider their stance on illegal immigration. They literally demand that they be allowed to let these illegals in and give them things that our homeless should be getting. They do it because they know when they are able to vote they will vote Democrat. Chuck Schumer and many other Democrats voter to fund sanctuary cities, voted no on making English the official language of the US government, voted YES to building a fence on the border then voted no on funding that fence. He did this, so he could say he voted to build the fence. Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security, YES on giving Guest Workers a path to citizenship, NO on limiting immigrant benefits & controlling borders more tightly, and voted to provide funding for social services for noncitizens.
I stated at the top of this column that we took a step back. Knowing what the Democrats do, allowing them to be back in power in the House is insane! Mad Maxine Waters who has only one purpose in life and that is impeach Trump. Adam Schiff who has only one purpose and that is to start 18-20 investigations on Trump, Nancy Pelosi who just wants that gavel back in her hand. She only has a 27.5% approval rating! They want the power, so they can destroy their enemy, conservatives any and all. Pelosi refers to conservatives being hurt as ‘collateral’ damage. “We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.” They won’t do anything that the American people will benefit from and we insanely put them back in power. Even Lindsey Graham said during the Kavanaugh hearings that power is all they want and don’t care how they get it and he hoped they never get it. We gave it to them. Stupid on steroids. There is no question as to why we are in the shape we are in.
Republican lost the House but there were no riots, no protests, no one sobbing uncontrollably, nobody’s moving to Canada, nobody burned cars or businesses and there is a good reason why, conservatives are adults which is more than you can say for liberals. A lot more. We will put up with the Democrats BS for two years and then vote them out. But I still think it was really stupid to put them back in power. Too many people didn’t vote and when that happens, we elect bad politicians. We’ll just have to see how bad they really are.
