That is basically the running theme of the main stream media who continue to go after President Trump for his twitter post wondering if any of the UCLA freshmen players will think to say “Thank You” after he intervened during his recent trip to China by asking President Xi Jinping to help resolve this before it became an international incident.
It’s now been two weeks since three young UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in Hanzhou, China on Tuesday, November 7th, after they were caught on surveillance video shoplifting from three stores next to the hotel where their team was staying during their opening season game against Georgia Tech.
President Trump has publically thanked Chinese President Xi for securing the release of the UCLA freshmen and tweeted Wednesday morning, “Do you think the three UCLA basketball players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!”
LiAngelo’s father, LaVar Ball who was in China with the team made this statement that in part said, “Everybody making it a big deal; it ain’t that big of a deal.”
Ball has since been picked up by the media refusing to acknowledge President Trump for making it possible for his son and the other two players to be able to come home from China.
On Wednesday afternoon, after all three freshmen were back on US soil at a packed press conference from the UCLA Pauley Pavilion publically thanked the president and the U.S. government for their help in getting them home.
UCLA has suspended the three freshmen indefinitely.
In response to LaVar Ball’s statements, the President Trump took to Twitter with this “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal, I should have left them in jail!”
It is reported that the president even suggested on twitter that maybe he should have left them in jail until his next trip to China so that they would understand the seriousness of their offense.
Some have even said, and I agree that maybe LaVar Ball would have benefited by spending time in a Chinese prison too.
Contrary to what is being taught in present day America, criminal behavior is not acceptable. If you’ve ever ventured outside the United States, the world is a very different place. Imprisonment, torture and death are common place. There are no “country club” cells, no TVs, workout areas, no libraries.
Life in a Chinese prison would be many people in common area cells, food comes in a bucket, showers are none, toilets are a hole or bucket in the corner of the room.
So LaVar Ball it is a big deal; it is public humiliation, intimidation, and the law of the jungle inside a Chinese prison.
I normally don’t watch main stream media or much of Fox news but last night on a new show, the host had two African-American gentlemen, one elderly conservative, the other a young liberal.
I only watched a portion of it but I could see that
- When the liberal spoke he blamed Trump for only attacking African-American males like the UCLA freshmen, then he brought up the taking a knee crowd of Kapernick.
- When the conservative began speaking, he was interrupted by the liberal and had to be stopped by the host. The conservative stated it was black-on-black crime and black lives didn’t really matter to those who kill other blacks.
- The liberal went on to say Trump’s use of Twitter was something on other president had done before him and it was wrong of him to use Twitter.
I had to laugh and change the channel because of the absurd logic (or lack of it) of the liberal left.
It is not seen as wrong to kill, steal or destroy when liberals do it, but it’s an offense to blacks for the president to use twitter in a manner that would bring shame on the wrong doers?
I watch as President Trump highlights his agenda and accomplishments on TV, the news media and on Twitter and how hard the liberal left (Democrats and Republicans) go after him with a vengeance for his use of Twitter.
I would rather see our government come together in support of the American people by eliminating laws, rules and regulations that hinder the American spirit and stifle the growth and economy of America, than simply go after President Trump because he uses Twitter.
And the media’s latest politicizing the death of Charles Manson by comparing his and the presidents use of words to get people to follow them? Come on now, use some common sense or at least follow it thru logically.
I firmly believe that God has placed Donald Trump as President of the United States for such a time as this, not the savior of the world, but as an instrument that God can use to bring about order out of chaos in America.
There is so much negativity out there and what we see around us is a world that is imploding upon its self.
Imagine a world without God.
It would be a world without good.
God is good – all the time.
People need to believe in God again.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in America.
We must make it a time of thankfulness for what God has done, not for ourselves but for everyone.
We have life, family, friends, food and opportunity – to help others.
God doesn’t need people, people need God.
God made a way through his son Jesus where mankind can find their way back to God.
