Here we go again – “Trump said” and everybody reacts. Let me put this up front, I am not here to make you feel good or feel bad or to debate your opposing views. The matter at hand is not grey, black or white, it’s getting real with America.
I simply don’t like it when I see those on the liberal left “stacking the deck” to the detriment of President Donald J. Trump without reason.
So according to a friend when it comes to “Immigration, Trump’s latest alleged comments, current postings by those who don’t support him and his agenda……in your eyes, Mr. Trump can do no wrong, it seems.“
Well contrary to what you may think, Trump is not perfect.
(There I said it, take it to the bank; print the headlines)!
Trump definitely has his flaws. Which liberals on the left are only too quick to point out on an hour by hour, day by day basis, as they have for the past 2 years or longer?
What I take issue with is when people make a habit of saying that Trump said something outrageous without even saying “Trump allegedly said”, and everybody goes nuts.
What I read, then heard about what was said in the so called private meeting (what’s so private now) did not make me happy. Like many of you at home and around the world I was upset.
Here is what the White House officially released:
What exactly DID the President say in the private meeting? The White House issued this statement:
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people. The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration – two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country. Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation. He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway.”
I doubt that those shouting from the rooftops took the time to wait for a response from President Trump?
It didn’t take long for the president to put out his own tweets about what he did or did not say.
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by the Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
I have questioned the integrity of any politician who goes into political office and decides to make personal political gains at the expense of others, no matter what political party they aspire to belong. It is easy to see how this meeting quite possibly went down.
In the meeting there were politicians present who support President Trumps concerns on the DACA program and who came to the table to make a difference. Also present were politicians who thought they could force their version on the president. When they didn’t get what they wanted, an old Saul Alinsky tactic was used to divert public attention away from their own despicable actions by just throwing something outrageous out there, whether it’s true or not. That tactic has often worked to distract, and draw outrage over a “non-event”. We use to call that “Making a mountain out of a mole hill.”
I’m not falling for it.
It really goes to the credibility of the democratic senator involved. He purposefully “leaked” false information so as to derail the DACA negotiations, bringing his morals to be in question.
Anyone who cares to look back at recent events can see the same tactics have been used over and over in an attempt to divert President Trump from his agenda. Failing that another tactic of “resistance” has been and is being used to impede the current administration from going forth with the president’s agenda.
This same tactic was tried just a day or so earlier to bring false allegations of sexual misconduct against the president. (It worked on flaky congressmen who fled like the swamp rats they were, and because they were guilty of wrongdoing.) It worked to prevent an opponent from being elected to political office and the public outrage was too overwhelming, and when falsely accused it wouldn’t surprise me if legal suit is not soon forthcoming.
I was born at night, but not last night.
These politicians have a habit of using “Politicspeak” when talking to the American people. They utter absolute nonsense and by the time they’re done it seems almost believable. (Almost being the operative word).
Trump uses something called “Trumpspeak” which is straight out, in your face and often crude, or more importantly not the way a proper politician talks. Whether it’s over the phone, online thru Twitter, or at a news conference, or in the privacy of a football game, the president shows up in the news over something someone thinks he said, done or implied by doing.
This past year on a confidential phone call consoling family members of soldiers killed in the service of OUR country, it was a democratic politician looking for headlines who “leaked” a false narrative of what the president said. Has she been held accountable for her despicable actions?
When college football players turned thieves in China while representing the USA, it was the president who secured their release from jail and arranged their return to America. Trump tweeted that he wondered if they would be grateful for his intervening. The media went nuts over Trumps comment, but said nothing when one of the parents in China at the time said it was no big deal and the offenders were later “made” to apologize by their college faculty. Their misconduct became just a “non-story” and disappeared.
The president made a disparaging comment about NFL players disrespecting the flag before football games and now disrespect is the new norm. Players are either kept in the locker room or under the stadium so as not to draw attention to their disrespect, another new norm. The networks say they will now cover the kneeling protests live, another new norm.
More recently when the president stands for the national anthem at a football game, the pundits are quick to mock him on late night talk shows and on major network news, still another new norm.
All of this after 8 years of Barack Obama giving voice in the white house to BLM activists, calling out law enforcement, directing DOJ to ignore federal immigration laws and going so far as to issue an executive order protecting immigrants without documents, without pushing congress to enact or change the immigration laws as per the constitution. This unlawful order has affected 3M + immigrants and congress did nothing about it since 2012.
But let Donald Trump tell congress UNLESS they correct this situation the DACA program will end shortly. Now congress is fighting President Trump over the unlawful DACA act?
Look at the events of the past year, when Trump speaks to people in private or in confidence it shows up in the headlines?
Coincidence, I don’t think so.
It may come down to the point where Trump may have to have all of his interactions with others recorded (or maybe just get the tape from the CIA who seem to do it anyway)?
If I get frustrated with all the negativity and I’m sure the president is frustrated, yet he remains focused on doing what he said he was going to do in spite of the tantrums of the liberal left.
So you can stay out of it or you can take a critical look at what’s going on and make up your mind, as I have. I will not just sit idly by as you trash our president, our country, our flag, or our constitution!
I took the Oath! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
