Yep, It’s Definitely Donald Trump Who’s the Tyrant Here

Hitler. Mussolini. Stalin. Pol Pot. al-Assad. Hussein. Gaddafi. Franco. Kim Jong Il. Each one is considered a dictator, a tyrant who’s greed for power is only surpassed by their cruelty and inhumanity.

If you were to wade into the depths of #TheResistance on social media (which I don’t recommend), you’d also see a movement to brand Donald Trump a dictator and his administration a lawless tyranny over the nation.  To be sure, the Trump administration has done itself no favors is coming across as inept, overly ambitious and yet clearly out of its depth. They have said things that, yes, are frightening.

But let us be absolutely honest here. When it comes to tyranny in America, there is no tyranny except for that of the mob.

Social media is both a blessing and a curse. The instant communication of thoughts to the world allows for breaking news to break faster and hard-hitting news to hit harder. The downside is that it opens you and everyone you know and love up for ridicule, petition, and even expulsion from society.

Case in point, the lad from Google who wrote what is being called a “manifesto” opposing Google’s diversity policy. It seems that, virtually instantly, this person was the target of a mob whose sole purpose was to flush him out of The Collective.

It worked, too. Google fired the man (interestingly, a new social media platform called “Gab”, which touts itself as an ad-free, free speech platform, offered to hire him), and the Left was delighted that the wrongspeak was punished.

This is not the first time, however, that someone’s livelihood was destroyed over thinking or believing the “wrong” thing. We’ve covered countless times the bakers, photographers, and other business people whose lives were ruined and their businesses shuttered because they dared to not conform with the Left’s ideology.

“But Mr. Reagan Conservative,” some on the Left might cry, “this isn’t tyranny because mobs aren’t the government.” If you think that, you are wrong. It is with the help of the courts that these attacks on private businesses have flourished. It is the politicians who speak out and encourage this behavior that ruins the lives of people whose only crime is thoughtcrime.

For another example, take Chelsea Handler, the so-called comedienne who actually suggested we criminalize speech.

Where, exactly, does this type of legislation begin and where does it end? By the Left’s standards, virtually everything is racist, so that means if you laugh at something someone else deems is racist, you’re going to (at best) be fined. This is an actual proposal from someone who thinks there is no problem with criminalizing what someone finds funny. There is no end to this slippery slope, either.

Or take the case of Dana Loesch, who is under attack from journalists and Leftists because she appeared in an NRA video ad and says she wants to fact-check the media. The number of people who want to silence her by reporting her to the feds, threatening her husband and her children, and making graphic, sexual threats to and about her is appalling.

But this is the new norm. This is the world we live in now. We have to deal with the tyranny of the mob before we can move on to the tyranny of any White House occupant.

So, forgive me when someone calls Donald Trump a fascist dictator with one breath and turns around to advocate banning speech because they don’t like it.

 

Man Who Identifies as 6-year-old Dominates CrossFit Kids Class (Satire)

Local CrossFit enthusiast Anthony Neff walked out of his local CrossFit affiliate with a smile on his face after his 4pm class on Tuesday. He had just dominated another workout, not only setting a personal record in the snatch, but besting the next strongest athlete in the class by over 185 pounds.

Neff, who works as a sales associate at Target, was born in 1983 but is currently transitioning to a birth year of 2011. He is the first transaged individual to participate in his gym’s CrossFit Kids program.

“I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for everyone who has been supporting my transition,” Neff told The Associated Press as he boosted a fellow athlete up to the gym’s water fountain to help him take a drink. “Science has come a long way in recognizing that age isn’t just a matter of how old you are. ”

Neff began to publicly identify as a six-year-old three years ago, but didn’t tell his wife Angela until months later.

“Anthony has always been a little immature, but I thought he would grow out of it,” She explained. But over time, Angela noticed her husband playing with toy trucks instead of going to work, watching hours of Octonauts, and laughing at the words like ‘poop’ and ‘booger.’

“This is who he is, and celebrating that is more important than pressing him to conform to reality.”

The change hasn’t been easy, but Neff says he’s been treated “well and kind” at his affiliate. “The coaches are all very supportive,” he said. His treatment has included increased growth hormones to match the levels found in the bodies of growing children.

“If he has been taking hormones, or steroids, he should be training and competing against actual children,” said Melissa Jones, mother of one of the other children in Neff’s CrossFit Kids class.

Jones is not alone in her concerns, but Neff’s coach, Travis Miller disagrees.

“I asked him if he thought the growth hormones were giving him an unfair advantage against the other children in the class,” Miller told the Associated Press. “He looked right at me and said he ‘didn’t identify’ as someone who was taking growth hormones. What kind of hateful bigot would question that logic?”

At time of press, Neff was consuming a bowl of Fruit Loops and looking forward to a CrossFit Kids session consisting of front-squats and a game of burpee dodgeball.

“All I know is when I get the ball everybody on the other side better watch out.”

Calm Down Democrats, The Holy Grail of a Trump Crime Remains Missing

What has really happened since Donald Trump Jr. released his email chain setting up a meeting last June with a Russian lawyer? Are Democrats and their allies in the media any closer to having their high crime or misdemeanor?

Answer: No.

As Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz stated on July 11,

“It is unlikely that attendance at the meeting violated any criminal statute.”

Well said, Mr. Dershowitz.

And yet, the media would have you believe that the meeting Trump Jr. described as “literally just a wasted twenty minutes” is a smoking gun that will inevitably take President Trump, his administration, and his entire family down forever.

In reality, Trump Jr.’s emails show he has nothing to hide.

Further to this point, Trump Jr. recently went on “Hannity” to speak specifically about his actions. Granted, Fox News host Sean Hannity is not always interested in giving a complete, unvarnished account of what happens in Trump World and his questions are softballs, but Trump Jr. made some important points nonetheless– namely, the fact that there was no subsequent follow-up contact with the Russian lawyer and “nothing to tell” then-candidate Trump. Therefore, unless you decide to believe he is lying, there was no “collusion.” The holy grail is still missing.

I don’t think Trump Jr. went on national television and told a bunch of lies. Undoubtedly, the president’s enemies will believe that they are justified in feeling otherwise. But Trump Jr. has little incentive to do anything but tell the truth at this point.

Even if we suppose there was a follow-up from the campaign with the Russian lawyer, it is hard to say that more conversations or meetings would have amounted to a crime. And yes, something can be wrong but not illegal. However, that is not the argument Democrats and their allies in the media want to make. They want this to crack the foundation of the Trump presidency. They want it to crumble.

Blinded by disdain for the president, liberals are the media are mostly trying to create credibility for accusations of criminal violations and impeachable offenses. They embellish everything just so that they can keep the story moving. Maybe they will get a break and someone will stumble into a crime during the investigation into the non-crimes from the fall campaign.

In their search for a nonexistent smoking gun, Trump’s opponents appear at least partially satisfied by the constant hounding of the White House and the president’s family.

In politics, being innocent is just an advantage. It is not determinative. And although the fact’s do not support the left’s pursuit of criminal wrongdoing on the part of the Trump family, Trump Jr. is sure to face a lot of harassment, and he may make more “mistakes.” But that is far from being in the crosshairs of an American law enforcement investigation that could bring down a president. Sorry to the Trump haters for being such a buzzkill.

If Trump Jr. is guilty of anything, it is letting someone so lacking credibility have unfettered access to his schedule. Danger. You usually see your enemies coming, but it is your friends who will blindside you and get you in trouble.

Anyway, Trump’s enemies are desperate for something impeachable. But remember, there is no such thing as the crime of collusion. It’s not even a misdemeanor. And unless the Russian lawyer provided an illegal contribution, stolen probably, etc., to the Trump campaign, there is no crime that will take this story where the media want it to go. But that doesn’t mean they will quit trying.

My Reaction to the “Smoking Gun” of Don Jr.’s Meeting

I don’t care. I honestly don’t care. The more alarmed the press becomes, the more I believe America is becoming exhausted. These stories are becoming so intense and so over-the-top. The press is so interested in re-litagating the past, instead of the future. We know as Americans, it is not about collusion, it is about settling the score. I would also think some conservatives and Republicans might do the same thing, because we’d be angry over an election, but at some point, you have to let it go. I could redefine “collusion” as collusion between media, academia, and the entertainment industry who have been trying to brainwash us for the decades over the dumbest ideologies. We’ve all been victims of “collusions” of our lives. The narrative here is that the Trump presidency is in disarray: that’s what we know because that’s what we the people elected. We are okay with disarray, we elected someone because they don’t have any experience in politics; therefore, President Trump is surrounded by people who are not as adapted to controlling the narrative. Maybe that’s their fault, and he should have known better, but the bottom line is this: if you didn’t want this to happen, you could have had a Kasich or a Rubio, but you wouldn’t have this Trump “phenomenon/revolution” in the polling booths. We elected a bunch of outsiders, so there isn’t a bug in the system, this is the system and we (and the media) just have to deal with it and get over it. And the hyperventilation on the other networks is insane. Have you seen them recently? I worry about their health.

Heres a dumb question: How come a citizen cannot engage in a practice that a reporter can? A reporter can go to a meeting and he gets some information and he becomes a whistleblower, a hero (i.e. the Pentagon Papers and Snowden). But Donald Trump Jr., who is a citizen, not involved directly in a campaign, does it and it called collusion, but when in fact if he had found something, Trump Jr. could have been our Chelsea Manning, a hero.

The issue is that some liberals can’t grasp the idea that no matter what happens, Hillary Clinton can’t win the 2016 presidential election, it is completely impossible. Even if some evidence magically appears that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, Ms. Clinton would not be in the White House.

So here’s the big question of the day: What’s the point in bringing up all of these collusion stories and over-analyzing and over-investigating? To get President Trump removed from office? Are these liberals really going to be satisfied with a more (from an ideology standpoint) conservative President Pence? The answer is probably not. So then, some liberals say that they don’t want Trump impeached, all they want to show is how ignorant Trump and his administration are. So here’s the rewritten big question of the day: What does showing President Trump’s “ignorance” accomplish? The only answer that I can think of is more polarized, divided nation.

Speculation News Gets Trumped 

From now on, I will only refer to “fake news” as speculation news because that’s what they only embrace: speculation, not the facts. Now these speculations could be eventually proven somewhat true, however I believe that this new term effectively describes how they mislead the American people. Anyhow, here’s my commentary for today… 

You hear that? It’s absolutely nothing. Complete silence. That silence is the Trump-Russia collusion “scandal” dying. A few weeks ago, all you heard was that Trump campaign officials had contacted Russians before and after November. But this was all a diversion. 

After Hillary’s humiliating loss in November, the left began smearing Trump as a Putin puppet because they couldn’t accept defeat. We heard the words “special prosecutor”, “treason”, and even “impeachment”. Now notice that the narrative is dead. Why? Because President Trump launched missiles at Syria, right on Russia’s doorstep. You don’t do that if you’re in cahoots with the Kremlin. 

So with the collusion theory up in smoke, guess what the Democrats have been reduced to. Here’s what Congressman Swalwell tweeted out to all of his random followers:

“Help me connect the #TrumpRussia dots. Submit your tips & we’ll follow the evidence & and post online”- CONGRESSMAN ERIC SWALWELL VIA HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT 

So Democrats are setting up an internet tip hotline? Congress has investigative powers and they’re asking Joe Smith from Arkansas to see if he has any tips. Obviously they have nothing. As if they wouldn’t think that anyone wouldn’t notice that they completely dropped the Trump-Russia thing, the left has now started a new anti-Trump narrative, that President Trump completely flipped his opinions on NATO and China from the campaign trail to now. 

Donald Trump campaigned on, and stills believes, that NATO members are not equally paying their contribution costs. Now, NATO member countries have begun ponying up more money. Also, with the Russian and Syrian conflicts going on, NATO needs to be as strong and as united as possible to be an absolute pain to Putin. With China, President Trump understands that a warmer relationship with China ices out Russia and to help control the North Korean conflict. 

In conclusion, pay close attention to the ever changing anti-Trump narratives that the media spews out, they reveal more about the media and less about the President. And also the media will always be in attack mode, but the key is to know their playbook: faking (and speculating) scandals, smearing, and using flip-flop allegations will be employed interchangeably throughout the news cycle. But President Trump, unlike most Republicans, doesn’t cave in when he’s attacked; so the media will continue to be steamrolled over and is left barely and desperately grasping for straws.

Donald Trump as the Commander-In-Chief 

The president’s job approval numbers are likely to go up because he took strong action against Syria after the tyrant Assad gassed his own people.

There are also a number of developments on the military front. U.S. warships are heading toward the Korean Peninsula because the nutty dictator of that country continues to test ballistic missiles in violation of international law. Also the two U.S. warships in the eastern Mediterranean continue to monitor Syria. There’s also an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, the George H.W. Bush. 

So you can see that President Trump and the Pentagon are sending signals that if world order is threatened, America will respond. It’s just a damn shame that we are the only country willing to take this stand. 

There is no reason for Russia to prop up Assad in Syria, the man is a war criminal. Also, China does not try to control the North Korea situation when it absolutely could. Staunch allies like Britain, Australia, Canada and France do help us out, but it’s on a limited basis. Unfortunately policing the world falls to America, with all the danger and expense that entails. President Trump would be wise to pick his spots. The attack on Syria worked and was approved by most in the world who care about protecting innocent people. 

Yes, Russia and Iran are now threatening the USA, but so what? Those countries have thrown in with the devil, and we cannot back away from their bluster. 

However, a confrontation with Russia is not what anybody needs, so President Trump would be wise to talk to Putin quietly and try to get the guy to wise up by helping his economy. Iran is truly a hopeless situation, but the mullahs do not want to commit suicide. How the nuke treaty will eventually play out is one of the great world mysteries. 

It is likely that North Korea will be the next problem we have to deal with. If they test a nuclear device again in violation of international law, something must be done. 

Can Donald Trump convince the Chinese to partner up with us against North Korea? That would end the problem and be good for world order and business. Again, it is a mystery why the Chinese will not exert their strength and influence on North Korea. 

Summing up, President Trump gained a measure of respect for his actions against Syria, the U.S. military is gearing up, but caution is the word.

The US Attacks Syria 

Two nights ago, around eight o’clock (standard central time), sixty missiles were launched from American war ships in the eastern Mediterranean. Fifty-nine missiles hit their targets. The goal was to destroy an air base from which Syrian planes recently dropped sarin gas on civilians, killing thirty children and twenty women according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. According to reporting based on a variety of agencies, this is the fifth time, at least, the Syrian dictator Assad has violated the Geneva Conventions and used poison gas to kill civilian.

Back in 2012 President Barack Obama threatened Assad.

“The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences, and you will be held accountable.”- PRESIDENT OBAMA

But Assad was not held accountable. Instead the Obama administration did what it always did, talked. And announced a deal with the dictator. A fascinating footnote is that Susan Rice was on point alongside John Kerry:

“We were able to find a solution that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished.”- SUSAN RICE

“With respect to Syria, we struck a deal where we got 100% of the chemical weapons out.”- JOHN KERRY 

Obviously, a false belief. For years Assad has been protected by the Russians, who were warned the attack was coming last night so they could move their personnel out of the air field.

“Russia should be embarrassed and ashamed. They are saying there were no nerve agents or chemical weapons left. We know that for the better part of this year, Assad has been using chlorine bombs against innocent civilians and population centers, and now yesterday, a couple days ago a nerve agent, sarin. So the Russians have been covering for Assad and if it were not for the Russians, Assad would not still be in power.”- SEN. MARCO RUBIO (R-FL)

That’s true. Putin continues to prop up Assad while thousands of people die and at least five million Syrians are refugees. Most sane people support the missile attack last night. Sane is the key word here.

“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gasses. I think there is a zero chance he would have done this deliberately.”- FMR. REP. RON PAUL (R-TX)

The former congressman apparently believing Assad was set up by somebody. Now the morality of the attack is certainly acceptable. When you have war crimes being openly committed, a noble nation will confront that. Unfortunately, noble nations are in short supply these days, the USA being an exception.

Also America’s national security is in play because poison gas can be used by terrorists. Assad has a close relationship with Iran and Hezbollah. Once chemical weapons become acceptable, the world becomes an unstable place. Assad’s air force should have been destroyed a long time ago and NATO should have established safe zones inside Syria to protect the innocent. Under President Obama none of that was remotely possible because of his strategy of retreat. But now the new President Donald Trump is sending a message to the world: The US will not tolerate war crimes from nations like Syria.

The downside is for every action, there is a reaction. So security is heightened here in the USA, as we become an even bigger target for evil-doers.

Summing up, America was justified in destroying the Syrian airport, rogue nations should be dealt with by the world but if they are not, the lone superpower has a responsibility. Even most of the Trump-haters in Congress agree that if we can stop children from being gassed to death, we should do so.
