Have we jumped the tracks or is their still hope to MAGA?

To the surprise of many of his own supporters, President Donald Trump came out as the biggest advocate for the American Health Care Act (RyanCare) and was also its biggest defender.

Trump, who campaigned on a promise to “Repeal and Replace” ObamaCare, settled on a plan that didn’t replace any of the regulatory framework of ObamaCare and still carried a $1.42 TRILLION price tag, while guaranteeing that insurance premiums would increase by another 20%.

The move by Trump has many at least scratching their heads, while others are fuming with anger.

While libertarian leaning members of the Freedom Caucus refuse to support the bill as it creates new entitlements and does not repeal ObamaCare, even moderates are refusing to support the bill.

Republican moderate Congressman Charlie Dent refuses to support the bill because it will drive up the cost of health insurance, making it unaffordable to many.

Dent told Politico, “After careful deliberation, I cannot support the bill and will oppose it.”

Among Trump’s grassroots supporters, another reality is starting to sink in: Trump is not a conservative.

Those who are attracted to Trump during the election made an assumption that the then candidate supported a pro-liberty agenda and would shrink the size and power of government.

The assumption was based on Trump’s disdain for the establishment and aggressive, protectionist views on immigration.

However, if supporters look back at his messaging, Trump very rarely used the words “small government,” never opposed the rampant spying on Americans (until it happened to him), and even praised socialized medicine.

When asked about “Universal health care” then candidate Trump responded, “I am going to take care of everybody, I don’t care if it costs me votes or not . . . the government’s gonna pay for it.”

For those who paid attention to the details during the campaign, Trump’s support of RyanCare should come as no surprise as it is yet another step close to socialized medicine.

A minority of supporterss want blind allegiance to the President in order to maintain his power, credibility, and ability to win future elections.

Here’s an example of that thinking from online commenter “wren”:

Everyone needs to let him do his job. You may not like it, but in 2 years we could lose the majority and that’s it folks because Dem’s don’t break party lines. So when your congressmen vote remember this. They are either voting for Obamacare or against Obamacare. This bill is either better than Obamacare or it is worse than Obamacare. Your congressmen will be showing you what they prefer soon and I think a bunch of them will need replacing.

So basically, toe the party line regardless of consequences? Isn’t that how we got into this mess to begin with.

Others remain in a state of denial and believe Trump’s support of RyanCare is an elaborate plot to undermine and out Paul Ryan as speaker.

Those who are supporting Trump due to party loyalty, or loyalty to his brand, would be wise to go back and read the words of General George Washington that he wrote as part of his Farewell Address in 1796:

Let me now take a more comprehensive view, & warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the Spirit of Party, generally.

. . .

There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the Administration of the Government and serve to keep alive the spirit of Liberty.

. . .

But in those of the popular character, in Governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be, by force of public opinion, to mitigate & assuage it. A fire not to be quenched; it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest instead of warming it should consume.

Has Trump lost credibility over RyanCare? Vote in our poll.

Support isn't blind.

Typically when a strong “personality candidate” like Donald Trump or Barack Obama rises to the top, a sheep-like mentality quickly emerges to support every move of the politician.

During President Obama’s eight years in office, some called his supporters “ObamaZombies.”

George Bush’s blind backers were called “BushBots.”

With Bill Clinton, they were just called “dipshits.”

Whether under Obama, Bush or Clinton, their supporters who blindly went along with every move were a powerful, vocal force.

But within the first months of Donald Trump’s administration, something radically different is happening among the President’s most loyal supporters.

They are holding him accountable for his campaign promises.

Rather than jumping on board with RyanCare as President Trump has requested, pro-liberty voters are saying, “absolutely not, get it right and repeal!”

In addition to nearly every conservative group opposing the bill, from Heritage Action to the libertarian groups Cato Institute and Liberty Guard, diehard Trump supporters are telling the President to get it right.

When President Trump tweeted this morning, “Big day for healthcare. Working hard!” the response was overwhelming . . . against the President . . . by his own people.

Here’s just a sampling:

Even typically quiet members of Congress like Dave Brat (who led a revolt against the establishment by beating Eric Cantor) said, “We want Trump to be hugely successful, so we don’t want to handle a bill that’s going to fail in a few years.”

The Republican Congressman called RyanCare a “perverse economic system.”

To the credit of the grassroots movement that elected Donald Trump, they’re not going to toe the line just because they were told to do so.

Just as Trump was an unconventional candidate that won the election based on faith in his ability to deliver . . . his support base is also unconventional in that they are showing something rarely seen in politics . . . collective intelligence.

While Ryan, Trump and even Fox News are calling the American Health Care Act the “Repeal and Replace Bill,” nearly all of Trump’s supports can easily see through that lie and know it’s nothing more than a fresh coat of paint on ObamaCare.

Make no mistake, Trump’s supporters are not turning on the President, quite the opposite, they are serving as guiding force to get him on track when he swerves off course.

When Fox News Contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano stated that, “He [Obama] used GCHQ . . . the initials for the British spying agency . . . they have 24 hour access to the NSA database . . . and there’s no American fingerprints” he ended up being sidelined by his corporate bosses.

Napolitano was referring to FISA in the interview on Fox & Friends, however, what he really meant was an agreement known as “Project ECHELON.”

When the Judge was just a 21 year-old, a government project named ECHELON, was formerly established.

ECHELON is a spying agreement between Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The 46 year-old program allows nations that cannot spy on their own people and companies, per their own laws and constitutions to, well . . . spy on their own people and companies.

While the United States government cannot legally spy on citizens without cause and procedure, Australia, Canada, etc., can spy on Americans without any laws stopping them.

In turn, the United States can spy on all of the other nations.

When any of those nations, known as the FIVE, need information on their own people, they simply “share” data.

Project ECHELON, which was investigated by the European Parliament in 2000, and finally acknowledge in 2015 with the release of information by Edward Snowden.

The massive, worldwide spying program is not that big of a secret. Heck, even Hollywood made a movie loosely based on it . . . and even named the film the “Echelon Conspiracy.”

According to the Snowden documents, the program is run through “intercept stations” around the world managed by the NSA, CIA, Air Force, GCHQ (Britain), GCSB (New Zealand), ASD (Australia), and BND (German). As with many other international agreements, Canada doesn’t pull its own weight and does not operate an intercept station.

Germany, while not a member of the original “FIVE” operates an intercept station in Munich with the NSA as support.

Of the 16 known intercept stations, 11 have an NSA presence.

While Andrew Napolitano may have seemed like a conspiracy theorist to Fox News executives when he brought up the possibility that Donald Trump was spied on by the UK, in reality, those executives are simply ignorant of the history and depth of spying by our own government . . . and others.

Of course the UK would respond with “outrageous” when accused of spying on a presidential candidate at the request of a sitting United States President.

Their response is no different in force when the UK was investigating ECHELON in 2001. European investigators flew into the United States to meet with officials with the CIA and NSA.

When it was revealed that the purpose of the meetings were to discuss Project ECHELON, the meetings were cancelled and the delegation was forced to fly home.

Sixteen years later, the program rolls on, but if you dare talk about it like Judge Napolitano did, you may be out of a job.

Big Bird walks he way onto the chopping block.

With the budget proposal submitted by the Trump Administration, backers of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, National Public Radio, National Endowment for the Arts and PBS are literally freaking out and trying to deceive the public to continue support.

The Corporation of Public Broadcasting defended itself by saying, “The cost of public broadcasting is small, only $1.35 per citizen per year, and the benefits are tangible.”

There we go with fuzzy math.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting receives $445 million a year from the federal government.

Even if we spread that cost across all adults in the United States, the cost is $1.83 per person.

But the reality is that given nearly half of Americans pay no income tax, there are only 122 million taxpayers in the United States.

So the number is actually $3.64 per taxpayer – higher per household.

Big deal right?

It’s only $3.64 a year. That’s a gallon of milk or almost a McDonalds Quarter Pounder.

It’s the cost of a Fast Pass toll.

But let’s really think about that.

If someone were to steal $3.64 out of our wallet, would you shrug your shoulders and say, “eh, it’s just the cost of a gallon of milk.”

No, you wouldn’t. You would be chasing someone down the street.

Stealing $3.64 or even $1.35 from taxpayers to cover the cost of biased reporting and racist programming directed at our children is not just theft, it’s infuriating theft.

Wait, did I just say “racist”?

Yes.

A publically funded organization should at least be representative of America.

Take a minute to google “Sesame Street Cast.”

How many Caucasians do you see over the years? Very, very few.

Watch a few episodes and you’ll notice that the only white kids who are on the show are likely either wearing a helmet or sporting some other type of disability.

Sesame Street is a program designed to force children to think about race. In a supposedly post-racial America (at least up to the election of Barack Obama), Sesame Street, funded with your tax dollars, does nothing more than further racial divides.

For most American taxpayers, I suspect they prefer to keep their $3.64. If America’s non-taxpayers want to keep the alphabet soup of media welfare, they can pony up.

Washington's full!

Politicians will never openly admit that personal responsibility is . . . well . . . a responsibility.

The amendment to ObamaCare that was presented by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and is being vigorously backed by President Trump is nothing more than a fresh coat of paint on the (un)Affordable Care Act.

It’s also endemic of the overarching problem in Washington that it appears that not even Trump is immune from.

If they dare say that voters, regardless of their economic status, must provide for their own phones, food, shelter and doctors, they would dread a massive loss of votes.

You may be thinking, “So what if they lose a few votes?”

That’s the problem . . . it’s not “a few” votes. It’s half of them.

According to a report by Forbes Magazine, 49% of households receive some form of government assistance.

Even the U.S. Census Bureau admits that at least 21% of Americans participate in a “major” government assistance program.

Basically, Democrats and Republicans have been paying off voters with free stuff for decades and now that we’re past the tipping point and have to scale back these programs, they literally cannot do it and keep their jobs.

So as an eye opener to politicians and those receiving government assistance, here’s a tip . . . if it’s not free, people will pay for it if they actually need it.

Before Obamaphones, countless women had to choose between getting their “hair did” and paying their cell phone bills. What did they choose? They most likely grabbed a brush and paid a bill.

Before ObamaCare, if a poor, uninsured family had a medical emergency and needed care, what did they do? They humbled themselves and asked for help through the countless free clinics and grant programs that exist thanks to charitable Americans.

If a faithful family is struggling to pay their electric bill this month, what can they do? They can ask the church and their needs will most assuredly be met.

So when the media and politicians from both sides of the isle go apoplectic at the CBO’s report that 24 million Americans will lose coverage with the new (and fatally flawed) RyanCare bill, it’s clear that these people can’t see the forest for the trees.

A health insurance policy is not a basic human right. Air is. Freedom is. Aetna is not.

If you don’t pay for someone’s insurance policy, are you really blocking them from accessing health care?

If I don’t quickly dole out four dollars for a Happy Meal, am I preventing you from eating?

No, I’m telling you to find a way.

Human beings are incredibly resourceful. When forced to choose between death or discomfort and picking themselves up, they’ll pick themselves up.

Human beings are also caring. When they see someone physically or mentally unable to care for themselves, they will grab them by the shoulders and lift them up.

But here’s the catch, most people will always place their personal interests first. If a politician gives them something for free, will they return the favor with a vote to keep their free stuff?

Of course they will.

Washington’s solution to health care in America is like giving each taxpayer a Cousin Eddie. He’s always present, always eating our resources, and he’s never going to leave.

Whether we call it RyanCare or ObamaCare, it will be burden on productive Americans until the system collapses . . . or we do.

Right on.

50 Days, or 1,200 hours have passed since the swearing in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

While in any other circumstance with any other human being it would be completely unfair to review a President’s performance at the 50-day mark, but President Trump is no mere mortal.

The man makes the Tasmanian Devil look “low energy.”

And since the billionaire turned president is a man who puts accomplishment first, it’s fair to throw in a quick and honest evaluation.

To back up a bit, when I initially endorsed Donald Trump during the primary, it was not because I thought he was a conservative, or even a man who understands the value of a small government. He is a man who has little understanding of Liberty. That’s undeniable and displayed in his actions since becoming President.

Being a libertarian, why in the heck would I back a man like Trump?

It was an easy decision for me.

First, there was no libertarian candidate on the ballot (don’t get me started on Gary “Let Them Eat Nazi Cake” Johnson), and even if there were, I still would have likely backed Donald Trump.

And I have a very, very good reason for that.

Trump is a modern day Conan the Barbarian. Instead of muscles and a sword, he wields disdain for the Establishment and can strike hard blows through the power of the White House.

When you diminish the power of the Establishment, you put massive cracks in the foundation of the government largess they have built.

In the simplest terms, whether or not it’s his intent, Trump is going to rattle the walls protecting government so much, that others can rush in and do lasting damage.

Time Magazine wrote in their latest edition, “Trump is a Threat to Democracy.”

They meant to say, “Trump is a Threat to Government.”

Yes . . . he . . . is.

Now, on to that 50-day critique.

The Trump Administration moved quickly to disrupt Washington since Day 1. The hiring freeze, travel ban, restarts on pipelines and a focus on industry were no surprise and all what was promised.

However, what happened behind the scenes was not expected by most people in or out of Washington. The government bureaucrats (not just the politicians) fought back.

We refer to them as the Deep State.

They are the government workers that you and I pay for who are protecting their way of life that comes from the massive size, power and expense of the federal government.

They ignored his hiring freeze, leaked any details at all to the press, and even overtly disobeyed him (specifically the acting Attorney General who was fired).

Worse, they decided to put their disdain for Trump above the law and national security, leaking classified material to the press . . . and we now find out that the material may have been collected illegally.

The Deep State has been engaging in Guerrilla Warfare with the President of United States.

We couldn’t ask for more.

You see, Trump is a man with little patience, a quick temper and a long, vindictive memory.

The secrecy and power embedded within the Deep State will have to be dismantled for Trump to end this conflict . . . and if he wins, we’ll all be a bit more safe from our own government.

So how did Trump do in his first 50 Days? Better than we could have ever expected . . . with one exception.

His vocal support for ObamaCare 2.0 shows that he has likely been co-opted by the Republican Establishment.

There is nothing honest about the Republican plan to “Repeal and Replace” ObamaCare as it doesn’t even carry out the first goal to “repeal” the legislation.

Paul Ryan and other big government Republicans have his ear for now.

That’s where we come in.

Trump needs to hear the truth from his own supporters. They cannot fall into the trap of genuflecting to the promise of the President rather holding to his promises to America.

On the issue of ObamaCare 2.0, the calls to “give him time,” or worse the bleat of the sheeple, “let’s trust him” are long gone on this one.

Obligation goes both ways.

Trump has obligations to the American People that are unbreakable, and we have an obligation to hold politicians accountable for their actions.

Donald Trump needs to be reminded that he’s our President, or he runs the risk of becoming a puppet to the GOP Establishment.

So let’s get to it.

Let us know what you think by voting in our poll.

Con Man Paul Ryan presenting ObamaCare 2.0 to President Trump

Across the country, from the top of the ticket to the bottom of any federal race, Republican politicians promised the repeal of ObamCare.

When they rolled out their plan to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act on Monday, it was clear . . . they lied.

If you read the first page, specifically the first paragraph, you’ll see that the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), “is amended.”

Let me make this clear: this is no repeal of the ObamaCare monstrosity.

In addition to House conservatives, Americans for Prosperity, Liberty Guard, Heritage Action, Freedom Works and the Cato Institute have all come out swinging against the plan.

Cato Scholar Michael Cannon put it best, “The House Republican leadership bill does not replace ObamaCare. It merely applies a new coat of paint to a building that Republicans themselves have already condemned.”

Paul Ryan and his establishment lackeys are not only amending the ACA, they are expanding it by creating more entitlements to the public and the states.

Personally, it is shocking that Paul Ryan could be either this dumb, or this arrogant . . . or worse.

And we know that Ryan isn’t dumb.

While his arrogance is a given, you don’t make moves like this without a Machiavellian purpose.

Please let me explain.

It’s clear that Ryan and Republican leaders have convinced President Trump that this is the right way to go.

How did they do it?

While Donald Trump has many strengths, he was one significant weakness: he chooses not to read.

He admits to making decisions “with very little knowledge other than the knowledge I had, plus the words ‘common sense’.”

Trump has historically relied on hiring good people, and when they don’t do what they say they’ll do, he fires them.

Easy stuff and a known factor with the President.

And Paul Ryan took advantage of that weakness knowing he would not read the new health care bill.

Here’s what likely happened when Trump met with Ryan and other authors of ObamaCare 2.0:

President Trump: Do you have it ready?

Speaker Ryan: Yes Mr. President, and you’re going to love it.

President Trump: Good, good. Will it lower costs, kill ObamaCare taxes and open competition?

Speaker Ryan: Of course Mr. President, we eliminate all ObamaCare taxes and subsidies and the American people will spend less while getting better care.

President Trump: Great job. Let’s get it passed in record time. Just let me know what you need.

Speaker Ryan: Yes, Mr. President [the speaker slinks out of the Oval Office].

When it comes to Washington politics, Trump is a neophyte. And that’s why he was elected. Americans were near the brink of societal breakdown due to their hatred of Washington politicians like Ryan.

And now we see why.

But that’s no excuse for Trump and his team.

He hasn’t just been betrayed by Paul Ryan who clearly lied to him about the contents of this bill, Trump’s staff failed to catch and stop this attempt to undermine Trump’s integrity in the eyes of the American people.

Paul Ryan knew exactly what he was doing. If you watched his press conference announcing the plan, Ryan started out by giving credit to both “President Trump and Vice President Pence” for making this happen.

Slimy Ryan wants this failure to be known as “TrumpCare” and with those too busy to know the difference, it’s working.

President Trump will be best served by tweeting: “Paul Ryan and GOP lied to me about new bill. I demand complete repeal! No more games!”

Then he needs to fire those in his White House who were tasked with vetting this bill along with this spokespeople like Spicer and Conway who failed to do their homework before participating in this con.

Most importantly, Donald Trump cannot forget this and when it comes to the next election cycle, he needs to start campaigning for a clean sweep of Congress.

Seriously?!?

After seven years of campaigning to repeal Obamacare, Paul Ryan and his GOP Republicans unveiled their healthcare replacement . . . and Americans should be pissed.

There was a reason this plan was under lock and key for the last week.

Like a unwashed meth head fiending for his next hit, the GOP healthcare bill should have never been released until it was cleaned up.

Here’s a quick recap on “American Health Care Act” (note that these geniuses couldn’t come up with a decent name):

Plays a shell game between subsidies and tax breaks. Insurance providers still get their money at the expense of the working class.

Does not open competition between state lines.

Maintains requirements on preexisting conditions.

Twists the individual mandate penalty to a 30% fine paid to insurance companies for those who drop coverage and then re-enroll.

Gives states $10 billion to expand Medicaid.

Throws a jaw-dropping $100 billion to states to expand services for the “poor” and “sick.”

Keeps a 40% tax on “Cadillac” health care plans.

Grandfathers Obamacare Expansion and . . . get this, allows enrollment in Obamacare for another two years.

On top of all of this, the GOP plan includes Obama’s request for a bailout for insurance companies!

This plan is not “Obamacare Lite” this is, in its worst connotation, RINOCare.

To be fair, the “what’s good about it” question now must be addressed.

What’s good about it?

The best thing about this proposal is that American voters can now wake up from the fantasy that politicians look out for their interests because of a party label.

Politicians on the Hill are looking out for one thing: the lobbying interests of the health care industry.

Health care companies and their investors began popping bottles yesterday as the plan – that they wrote – was revealed.

Two months ago, I was personally told by a source who has made many millions off of Obamacare, “we don’t want anything to change.”

They got their wish.

And to some, it’s no surprise.

Former House Speaker John Boehner, who was collecting a speaking fee for an appearance at a health care conference, told the group of well heeled executives that the repeal and replacement of Obamacare is, “not going to happen.”

He was spot on.

RINOCare maintains Obamacare in its current form, and makes it worse.

By keeping the requirement to provide coverage for preexisting conditions – while backending subsidies in the form of tax breaks, insurance premiums will skyrocket yet again.

Many Americans support preexisting conditions, but it’s wrong headed.

I’ll explain.

My 22-year-old sister-in-law is one of the worst drivers I know. If you take a car, park it in the middle of an empty parking lot and surround it with barricades, she’ll still find a way to hit it.

Imagine if we all had to pay the same auto insurance rates of my sister-in-law?

That’s what happens with preexisting coverage requirements.

That’s why all of us are paying significantly more for health insurance.

The biggest tell from RINOCare is that they didn’t open competition among insurance providers across state lines.

Republicans are for free markets right?

Wrong, Republicans are for winning reelection and that’s about it.

The health care industry DOES NOT WANT competition across state lines. Why would they? They would actually have to offer competitive pricing and spend money on advertising.

Limiting competition is great for the companies that currently have all of the business. It’s a state-by-state monopoly and they love it.

As Bill Walden and other Republicans march from microphone to microphone promoting this trash bill, do not be fooled for a second.

This GOP proposal is the biggest scam they have ever attempted to pass.

Not only is the bill worse than Obamacare, its mere proposal is a betrayal of everything that was promised by these politicians for the last seven years.

And if Donald Trump goes along with it, he will be the biggest betrayer of all.

When politicians have to “get into the weeds” and explain with high complexity why this plan is better, you know they are simply full of crap.

The solution to healthcare is the same as the solution to every other issue out there: Liberty.

As a crusty old activist has said for years, “Liberty is the answer, what’s the question?”

Drop Obamacare, drop regulations on competition, drop employer requirements, and let the industry sort itself out.

If Republicans were to do that, they would never get anther dime or dinner from a health industry lobbyist – but they would finally gain the respect of the American people.

Turn on the lights and get back to work.

While it is obvious that President Trump has spent the first 45 days of his administration battling both Democrats and the corporate media, the billionaire president’s biggest obstacles are coming from within.

As with everything Trump does, even his conflicts are atypical.

First, President Trump is dealing with the Deep State. It may be better stated that the Deep State is dealing with President Trump.

This is not to be taken lightly as it’s clear that in this case, the Deep State is chockfull of government holdovers and employees from the Obama Administration.

But that is nothing new.

Throughout Grover Cleveland’s two terms in office, he struggled with federal employees and the new Pendleton Act that prevented government employees from being fired by a new president due to party loyalty or affiliation.

Cleveland believed that civil service was a privilege and like Thomas Jefferson, favored rotation of government workers. While it took time, the 22nd (and 24th) President of the United States slowly but surely fired disloyal government workers.

If you dig into the details of recent history, you’ll remember the obstruction of George W. Bush’s first term that seemed chaotic until he displayed the leadership that the nation needed after the attacks of September 11th.

In Trump’s case, his problem with the Deep State may be the worst we’ve seen in the history of our republic.

While it’s acceptable for government workers to hold dissenting views from the President, it is not acceptable or common for federal employees to break law and meddle with the release of state secrets just to embarrass or disrupt a sitting president.

And when it does happen, it has the potential to be devastating to the nation. Just look at Richard Nixon who was forced to resign after the meddling of a top official within the FBI (Deepthroat).

Although the woes of Deep State disruption are beyond concerning, they could be addressed by a functional leadership staff within the White House.

And that’s the second group that is working against Trump . . .

While they have good intentions, the internal conflicts within the Executive Office of the President are only providing fuel to the fire of the media’s ongoing bonfire of the Trump Administration.

Today’s headlines of massive internal chaos, while certainly overblown, do carry some truths.

If you read between the headlines and are familiar with some of the players, you will find two camps within senior leadership of the White House: the Party Players and Mercer’s Mercenaries.

Reince Prebius, Sean Spicer, et al, of course are the Party Players while Conway and Bannon were installed by Rebekah Mercer whose influence comes from her billionaire father’s bank account.

While it’s unlikely the two sides are engaged in an all-out battle, it’s clear that they are constantly jockeying for position and influence to President Trump while Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner play the role of issue-based floaters (and oddly voices of reason despite their inexperience in government and politics).

There is no greater evidence of the discord than in today’s headlines on the Drudge Report.

Mercer’s camp was able to secure the headline of “Knives out for Reince,” while the Party Players placed the headline directly below it about Trump’s “Furious argument with Bannon.”

Neither headline should exist and instead, the nation would be better served with this imaginary headline: “After Mass Firings Across Government, White House Staff Leads Obamacare Repeal and Budget Cuts.”

President Trump is best served by people who place their loyalty to the interests of the nation above their desire to accrue more access and power for themselves.

Make no mistake, Reince, Bannon, Conway and others are quality people. They are incredibly hard workers who are caught up in an environment of uncertainty and reacting to their perception of standing in the White House pecking order.

But if they were to study Trump and his history with executives and employees, he’s a man who favors achievement over anything else. Those who are wasting time attempting to be the one whispering into the President’s ear, would be far better served being the one who gets things done.

Get on with it.

Over the last few weeks, stories have streamed across the wires of one illegal immigrant after another being arrested and deported.

The corporate media, which is attempting to create an uproar among sympathetic liberals, are actually doing the opposite.

For once, the corporate media is doing its job and showing the positive work that the Federal Government is finally doing . . . after years of refusing to enforce the law.

For the last eight or so years, President Obama maintained wide-open and welcoming borders and a very generous Welfare State.

How did that work out for us?

Aside from the mountains of money lost to maintaining the health, education and general prosperity for non-citizens who did not legally contribute to our national treasure, we allowed an insurgency to exist within our own land.

We saw this in California when Donald Trump staged a rally there and his supporters were met with violence.

We see it in the students who march on American streets while angrily waving Mexicans flags.

We see it in the tears of 15 year old Nisa Mickens’ mother. Nisa, a high school student, was brutally beaten to death by members of MS-13 gang members from El Salvador and confirmed illegal immigrants.

Obama and the social justice warriors who have cropped up under his presidency, can whine, cry, march, rally, and bitch and moan all they want.

By ignoring immigration laws, we have fostered lawlessness.

While each immigrant who illegally crosses our borders will look into a camera and say “I’m not a criminal,” their very act of crossing our border was a crime.

Let me say this clearly, “They are all criminals.”

So when 22 year-old illegal immigrant Daniela Vargas, a so-called “Dreamer”, holds a press conference to demand change from our president, and is subsequently arrested and deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement . . . I cheer.

The Trump administration had the courtesy of flying Vargas back to her true home of Argentina when she was entitled, at best, to get an escorted bus ride across the border to Mexico.

The lesbian activist for illegal immigrants can hoof it back to Argentina for all I care.

While deportations for men and women like Vargas are cheered, there are exceptions.

The ten illegal immigrants who killed teenage girls Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas under their gay MS-13 banner . . . well, they’re not going home . . . ever.

If justice is to be truly served for these punks, they should be bound and locked in a room with the families of the slain teenage girls.

It is impossible to sympathize with the plight of illegal immigrants when they are literally killing our children.

Deport them all, and then we can provide a route to entry for those who would benefit our nation and society.
