Trump at Lake Charles MAGA Rally: Dems are “Pursuing an Illegal B******t Impeachment”! Why He’s Right

Screen-Shot-2019-10-11-at-8.07.20-PM-1

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at his second campaign rally in as many nights Friday, saying “Nancy Pelosi hates the United States of America.”

Trump ridiculed the ongoing impeachment inquiry spearheaded by House Democrats, who he called “scammers and con artists,”

“They know they can’t win an election so they’re pursuing an illegal unconstitutional b—s— impeachment,” the president roared before a packed arena in Lake Charles, La.

Trump also attacked Joe and Hunter Biden over their Ukrainian business dealings for the second night in a row, accusing the media of covering up potential Biden corruption and complaining that if any of his children were similarly accused, the media wouldn’t call the allegations unsubstantiated — “They would be saying, ‘Where’s the nearest cell?'”

The president decried the “rage-filled Democrat party that has gone completely insane” accusing them of waging a “nonstop battle” to “overthrow” his presidency.

Trump also mocked ex-FBI officials and lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page again saying “these people are corrupt. These people are disgusting.”

“This is the witch hunt,” he said. “They’ve been trying to stop us for three years with a lot of crap.”

Trump’s appearance in Louisiana was scheduled to help rally Republican voters against the state’s Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards.

“Tomorrow you will head to the polls and vote to replace a liberal Democrat who has sold you out, John Bel Edwards, with a great Republican governor,” Trump said in his remarks, encouraging Louisianians to get to the polls before Saturday night’s big college football matchup between unbeaten Louisiana State University and the University of Florida or else they would feel guilty and “it will ruin your entire afternoon.”

The president was joined onstage by both U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone, but did not endorse either candidate in order to maximize chances that Edwards will fall below the 50 percent vote threshold needed to avoid a runoff in Saturday’s gubernatorial “jungle primary,” in which all the candidates appear on a single ballot.

“You’re not allowed to hit your Republican opponent, you’re only allowed to hit John Bel Edwards,” Trump said, extending an olive branch between the two GOP candidates, who have been at loggerheads in the race to the governor’s mansion.

The president’s trip to Louisiana comes one day after another fiery rally in Minneapolis, Minn., during which Trump also slammed House Democrats and their impeachment inquiry against him.

The president touted the country’s economy and boasted about the truce reached with China just hours before he landed in Louisiana, which stipulates that China will purchase up to $50 billion worth of agricultural goods from American farmers and also will postpone tariffs on Chinese goods that were originally set to take effect next week.

“I just made a great China deal today for energy, for the farmers, for the banks… I want to tell you, I got China to order a lot!”

He did not mention the growing issue of censorship in the U.S. over ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

“We’ve ended the war on American energy, and with your help, right here in Louisiana, the United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere on the planet!” Trump also boasted.

He also slammed Edwards for the state’s tax hike, which was passed with Republican support.

“You are going to fire your Democratic governor who has done a lousy job and send a great Republican to the governor’s mansion,” Trump said.

Other top Republicans, including Vice President Pence and Donald Trump Jr., have paid visits to the state, which Trump won by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016.

Neither Abraham nor Rispone has been able to break away as the top competitor, even as Rispone poured $11 million of his own personal wealth into the campaign. Party leaders’ efforts to keep the men from fighting each other have failed, raising concerns the backbiting could wound both GOP contenders and help Edwards. Republicans blame attacks among their own candidates for helping to elect Edwards four years ago.

Edwards isn’t the type of liberal, anti-Trump Democrat with whom the president usually clashes.

Louisiana’s governor is an anti-abortion, pro-gun West Point graduate who avoids criticizing Trump, talks about his strong rapport with the White House and calls the impeachment inquiry a distraction for Washington.

“He’s 100 percent going to drop the second Amendment … John Bel Edwards will not protect your second amendment,” Trump told the crowd.

While Edwards’ efforts to keep the president at bay in the governor’s race have been unsuccessful, the Democratic incumbent isn’t complaining about the rallies. Instead, he has downplayed them, calling it unsurprising that Trump backs members of his own party in the “hyperpartisan” environment of Washington. He said he would continue to “work well” with the president and focus on his own, bipartisan approach to governing.

“When my opponents realized just how much support my campaign had from the people of Louisiana, they started calling in help from forces in Washington, D.C.,” Edwards said. “My opponents are obsessed with political partisanship because the only way they think they can win is to divide the state of Louisiana.”

Republicans nationally have targeted Edwards for ouster since his longshot election victory four years ago. But work to unify around one major contender failed, with the state’s top-tier, well-known GOP officials passing on the race.

Trump was also joined on stage by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who said: “I told you, Donald J. Trump loves Louisiana like the devil loves sin.”

He also invited the Eastbank All-Stars, the Little League baseball championship team that joined him at the White House earlier in the day and then flew on Air Force One to the rally, to come on stage in Louisiana.

President Trump is amazing, isn’t he?

He continues his tireless work for our country and goes out on the stump for Republican Candidates from coast to coast.

All while dealing with a Democratic Party who has literally gone insane after throwing a nonstop national temper tantrum since the night of November 8, 2016

The very fact that a Deep State Operation involving members of a previous Administration, including members of the DOJ and FBI, designed to prevent him from becoming the Republican Presidential Candidate and later, attempting to frame him for “colluding with the Russian failed miserably, has driven the Democrat Hierarchy, including Nancy Pelosi, absolutely stark raving mad.

The House Democrats have thrown all pretense to the wind and are now holding secret meetings and interviews just like the days of the Politboro in the Soviet Union where innocent people were pronounced guilty without a trial and sentenced to hard labor in the Siberian Gulags.

The President was exactly right to call this Marxist-style mockery a “b******t impeachment.”

And he was exactly right about San Fran Nan Pelosi, also.

She could care less about the United States of America and what Americans want.

What we are witnessing, boys and girls, is sedition, a planned coup d’etat against Trump which, after going awry, has morphed into a “Star Chamber”, where the House Democrats are playing judge, jury, and executioner.

Stalin and Breshnev would be proud of Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff.

Just like President Trump and the rest of my fellow “Deplorables”, I think those Dems stink on ice.

Ending on a positive note,

Today was a day that the players and coaches of the Eastbanks All-Stars will remember the rest of their lives.

And, rightfully so.

They got to ride in Air Force One with a GENUINE AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

God bless him for his kindness to the Eastbank All-Stars and for his tireless work toward

Making America Great Again!

Jessica Chambers Trial Ends in Mistrial. Suspect Still Faces Another Murder Trial in Louisiana. Will Justice Be Served?

jessica-chambers-quinton-tellis

At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst. – Aristotle

The Jackson (MS) Clarion-Ledger reported yesterday that

A mistrial was declared Monday in the murder case surrounding the 2014 burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers after the jury came back with a not guilty verdict before deciding they were hopelessly deadlocked. Quinton Tellis, the man accused of burning the Panola County resident to death, will likely face a new trial following the decision, continuing what has been an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved for almost three years.

Tellis, 29, who pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the Dec. 6, 2014, burning death of Chambers, did not take the stand during the trial that started Oct. 9. He could have faced life in prison without parole if convicted.

Circuit Judge Gerald Chatham declared a mistrial Monday afternoon. District Attorney John Champion said the prosecution will try the case again, but at this point a timeframe is not clear, nor is from where the jury will be drawn. The jury in this trial was drawn from Pike County after extensive media coverage of the case.

Meanwhile, Chambers’ family filled up the center rows of the courtroom, where they have been every day since the case began. Family and friends of Tellis filled the right side.

The deadlock came from a misunderstanding of the jury instructions, officials said. The instructions said that a guilty verdict had to be unanimous, but didn’t directly say that about a not guilty verdict. It appeared the jury thought since they couldn’t unanimously decide that Tellis was guilty, that made him not guilty.

“You take the range of emotions that occurred in that short amount of time,” Champion said. “We felt like it was probably a misinterpretation of a jury instruction, so we added to one of the jury instructions to make it more simplistic.”

The emotional toll was felt strongly by both sides. 

“I can’t say what Quinton felt but the moment you’re in the midst of a week trial and the jury comes back and says, ‘We find the defendant not guilty,’ and there’s a great sense of relief there,” said defense attorney Alton Peterson. “Then, you find out that’s not valid and is the result of confusion in the jury box. I don’t know how to describe that.”

Among Judge Gerald Chatham, prosecutors Champion and Jay Hale, and defense attorneys Peterson and Darla Palmer, there are more than 100 years of legal experience. They’d never seen anything like a jury that tried to return a verdict twice before deadlocking.

The prosecution felt throughout the week that they had a strong case even in the face of the fact that first responders said that Chambers told them someone named Eric set her on fire. Their last two witnesses, Mississippi Bureau of Investigations Detective Tim Douglas and U.S. Attorney’s office Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett, were able to add visuals to the prosecution’s presentation that turned the tide in the opinion of many watching the case. 

Jury deliberations began around 4 p.m. Sunday and continued until about 8:30 p.m. in the capital murder trial. The jury reconvened at 9 a.m. Monday to continue deliberations. The court was told the jury came up with the verdict around 1:30 p.m. after nearly eight hours of deliberations.

However, when Chatham brought the jury back into court and asked them if they all agreed with the decision, one juror said he did not. The judge then went into chambers with the attorneys. A few minutes later, the judge came back to court and read the specific jury instruction that states all 12 members must be unanimous in the verdict. Then the jury was sent back to continue deliberations at 1:50 p.m. 

After that, the jury came back saying they had reached a verdict. However, the decision wasn’t unanimous. The verdict they reached was not guilty but after Chatham polled the jurors, it was clear the decision was split. The jury was sent back again to continue deliberations around 2:15 p.m. or so.

They came back with the deadlock around 4 p.m. 

The Chambers family quickly exited the courtroom, without comment.

Rebecca Tellis, Quinton Tellis’ mother, said she’s just happy he wasn’t convicted and that she’s leaning on her faith.

“They won’t let me talk to him, but my son is fine. He’s fine I could see it in his eyes. If he’s fine, I’m fine,” she said. “No matter what’s going on, God’s still going to have the say so at the last end.”

Rebecca Tellis also had a message for Chambers’ family. She said she still wants Jessica’s killer found and brought to justice.

“My heart goes out for them, too,” she said. “I don’t want my son guilty for a crime I know he didn’t do. But my heart goes out to them.”

At this point it’s unclear if Tellis goes back to Louisiana, where he’s serving time for a conviction of using the credit cards of a woman in whose death he also faces murder charges. Authorities said it’s too early to know what the timeline will look like between Mississippi and Louisiana as the two cases move forward.

So, justice has been delayed.

“Confusion in the jury box”, Huh?

Forgive my bluntness, but I am betting that it was purposeful confusion and that the deadlock was due to a disagreement along racial lines.

As I wrote recently, Mississippi has had a problem for several years now with an influx of gangs from up north, such as the Gangster Disciples, coming into both the Metropolitan Areas, such as Jackson, and the smaller cities, such as Clarksdale.

Just as it is with every other area that these parasites infest, crime begins to take over, ranging from drug dealing to violent crimes like the murder of Jessica Chambers.

Poor young Jessica, from all reports, was a known Marijuana dealer.

However, that was no excuse for the horrible tortuous death that she endured at the hands of a monster.

From what we know about Tellis, the career criminal accused of her murder, this is not his first rodeo.

He still faces a separate trial in Louisiana for murder, as well, where he is already presently serving time.

Per the local Fox Affiliate in Memphis in a story posted on February 25, 2016…

Monroe police told FOX13 Tellis is the only suspect in the killing of Ming-Chen Hsiao, an exchange student at the University of Louisiana Monroe.

On the school’s campus, friends called the 34-year-old murder victim ‘Mandy’ for short.  She had just graduated with a master’s in education and was seeking employment.

“She was very active on campus. She was very vocal in her beliefs and she would let people know about that. She enjoyed life,” a university administrator told FOX13.

“The people who know her say she was a nice person,” student Darrius Jones added. “She was a sweet girl. She never really bothered anybody.”

When police found her stabbed to death in July, investigators caught Quinton Tellis with her debit card. Witnesses had placed him at her apartment just days before her murder.

“We can place him at the apartment shortly before the murder. And with the victim, a day or two before the murder,” Detective Duane Cookson of the Monroe Police Department said.

Louisiana investigators said Mandy rode her bike and was friendly to the local children. One of the kids was the seven-year-old stepson of Quinton Tellis.

“Mandy would ride up and down the street. She invited the children in to get some candy one time, and he became acquainted with in that manner,” Detective Cookson said.

Tellis is a suspect in the murder, but he not charged because police need more physical evidence.

“It’s a circumstantial evidence case, and Mississippi I understand has DNA and more physical evidence,” Veteran criminal prosecutor Neil Johnson told FOX13.

Batesville District Attorney John Champion told FOX13 he would not deny what Johnson said about DNA.

Panola County will have to wait until after Tellis’ trial in May before they can extradite him back to Mississippi.  The Police Chief told FOX13 if Tellis is convicted in either state, he could face life in prison.

“Quinten Tellis will not harm to any citizen outside of prison again,” Monroe Police Chief Quinten Holmes.

Since then, Tellis was charged with that young girls murder, also, as referred to earlier in this post.

I hope that trial procedes swiftly and smoothly in the case of “Mandy” and I hope that Mississippi retries Tellis for the murder of Jessica, as well.

Animals like this “suspected” murderer are not just a burden on society, they are a plague upon it.

Neither of these young women deserved the fate bestowed upon them.

It remains up to the citizens of Louisiana and Mississippi, if they decide on a retrial, to make sure that justice is served.

Until He Comes,

The Louisiana Flood: Trump Gives Obama a Lesson in How to Lead

th0KR1VAQHYesterday, America witnessed a Citizen Statesman, a leader who actually cares, in action.

Yahoonews.com reports that

Chicago (AFP) – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visited flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday, criticizing the US president for not doing the same, as the region grapples with a historic disaster that killed 13 people.

Trump and his vice presidential nominee Mike Pence met with local Republican leaders and emergency officials, and toured areas that just a few days ago were inundated with several feet of water.

President Barack Obama meanwhile announced he is headed to Louisiana on Tuesday, after days of criticism from some in the southern state for not visiting during the week-long ordeal, which culminated with the Republican candidate on the ground and the president still on vacation.

“Honestly, Obama ought to get off the golf course and get down there,” Trump said at a campaign rally later in the day in Michigan, alluding to the president’s Wednesday golf game.

Officials said about 40,000 homes were impacted by the floods, and more than 86,000 people had so far registered for federal aid — with that number expected to grow.

In announcing Obama’s planned visit, the White House said the president would be “mindful of the impact that his travel has on first responders” and did not want to “interfere with ongoing recovery efforts.”

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards had previously indicated he would prefer Obama wait at least a week before visiting, to avoid pulling law enforcement officers away from the recovery effort in order to implement presidential security.

“We need every person to focus on continuing to rescue people,” the state’s lieutenant governor Billy Nungesser told MSNBC, agreeing with Edwards.

“The team he (Obama) has on the ground in Louisiana is doing a great job,” said Nungesser, a Republican who greeted Trump when he arrived in Louisiana.

Asked during a late afternoon news conference to comment on Trump’s visit, Edwards avoided the subject.

His office had put out a statement earlier in the day saying he had not been informed of Trump’s visit, but welcomed him as long as it was not “for a photo-op.”

“Instead, we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA (Louisiana) Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of this storm,” the statement read.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton released a statement saying she had spoken with Edwards and the best course of action was to highlight the need for donations.

“Right now, the relief effort can’t afford any distractions,” Clinton said. “The very best way this team can help is to make sure Louisianans have the resources they need.”

– Trump ‘very gracious’ –

The first financial analysis of the disaster was released Friday by the Baton Rouge Area Chamber, an economic development group. It suggested that the flood impact may be greater than first thought.

The analysis found that as many as 110,000 homes worth $20.7 billion — most without flood insurance — were likely damaged in about half of the flooded parishes.

While in Louisiana, Trump and Pence saw some of that damage first-hand, meeting with disaster relief volunteers, touring damaged structures, meeting an elderly couple who climbed to the roof of their home to survive the flood, and joining a short briefing with emergency officials.

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeffrey Wiley, who said he was in the briefing, told CNN that the candidate’s visit helped bring much-needed national attention to the disaster.

“I will tell you he was very gracious and a good listener,” Wiley said.

As the catastrophe unfolded over the past seven days, many in the state lamented the lack of national media coverage which would help bring more donations for victims.

The White House has said the president received daily updates on the disaster, but the Baton Rouge newspaper The Advocate took him to task for not yet visiting in person.

“Obama should recognize that leadership involves symbolism as well as substance. In times of profound need, people need to see their president up close,” The Advocate said in an editorial.

The newspaper did give credit to the president for quickly responding when the state requested a federal disaster designation for much of its southern areas.

Obama granted the designation to 20 of the state’s 64 parishes — Louisiana’s equivalent to counties.

The president also sent surrogates to monitor and help in the disaster response, including Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

The White House said that in his visit next week, the president will get “a first-hand look at the impact of the devastating floods… and tell the people of Louisiana that the American people will be with them.”

About the Democrat Louisiana Governor’s “wishes”…

When Trump and Pence touched ground yesterday, they were joined by Reverend Franklin Graham, head of the International Charity “Samaritan’s Purse”. They were also joined by  Louisiana Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and Attorney General Jeff Landry.

If Governor John Bel Edwards were truly upset about Trump being there, he would not have allowed his Lt. Governor and the State Attorney General to be there.

By the way, for you Liberals out there who are complaining that Trump’s visit was a “photo op”.

You carry both a camera which takes still photographs and one which shoots videos in your pocket.

It’s called a “cellular telephone”.

Americans were their own reporters yesterday, once again doing the job that the Main Stream Media refuses to do.

Being a good Democratic Party Operative, he was covering for Obama, so that “the Fresh Prince of Martha’s Vineyard” could finish his 16 day taxpayer-funded vacation. (His family’s entourage of Secret Service Agents, assistants, etc., do not work for free.)

Unfortunately for the “Imperious President”, Trump, by demonstrating how an American President should act, placed Obama in a situation in which he had to schedule a trip next Tuesday to the flood-ravaged region, in a weak attempt to pretend like he actually cares about us “common folk”

Are you old enough to remember when we had an actual American President?

I sure am.

We all remember the first time we went into a voting booth and got to pull the lever for the candidate of our choice.

I was especially blessed as a 22 year old college senior. My very first vote, in any sort of election, was when I got to pull the lever for Ronald Wilson Reagan.

In 1974, at the very first Conservative Political Action Conference, the future President of the United States said the following:

Somehow America has bred a kindliness into our people unmatched anywhere, as has been pointed out in that best-selling record by a Canadian journalist. We are not a sick society. A sick society could not produce the men that set foot on the moon, or who are now circling the earth above us in the Skylab. A sick society bereft of morality and courage did not produce the men who went through those years of torture and captivity in Vietnam. Where did we find such men? They are typical of this land as the Founding Fathers were typical. We found them in our streets, in the offices, the shops and the working places of our country and on the farms.

We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, “The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind.

We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.

And when Reagan became president, he did everything within his power to uphold these lofty words.

I suppose that is why I hold Barack Hussein Obama in such disdain. As a young man just starting my new life in the business world, I was able to watch the economy start to turn around under the greatest president in our lifetime. There was a confidence in our strength as an American people that I had never seen before.

You could see it in people’s faces as you walked past them on the street… or at the gas station, as we all watched the price of a gallon of gas finally go down after the pain at the pump that we experienced during the Carter Presidency.

People who had been out of work and suffering along with their families were beginning to be hired again. And, young Americans who had no confidence in the previous commander in chief, were once again going to military recruiters asking to sign up to serve our country.

Yes, indeed. Once again, it was “Morning in America”.

We knew that President Regan cared about us and our country.

However, the popularity of our president was not just limited to the boundaries of our nation. Reagan was admired the world over. The things that he accomplished, along with his friends, Prime Minister of Britain Margaret Thatcher, Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, and Pope John Paul II, have caused the decade of the 1980s to be recorded as a seminal moment in world history.

I remember watching President Reagan speak at the Berlin Wall. When he said, “Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall!”, I was never prouder to be an American and of an American president, than at that moment.

The Liberal Democrats lost their collective minds.

For you see, Liberal Democrats, just as they do now, hate it when an American President shows strength and places America and her people first.

Nothing bothers them more than when a strong American President is at the forefront of a conquering moment, when a strong foreign policy based on the reality that negotiating from a position of strength is always more effective than negotiating from a position of weakness.

Fast forward to the present, where an ineffective President Barack Hussein Obama is looking like a fool to a world who used to look to America as a bastion of strength and freedom, not weakness and political expediencies.

Obama’s weakness and penchant to act upon political expediencies first are not only found within the arena of Foreign Policy. With his scheduled visit to the disaster scene in Louisiana an obvious reaction to the visit of the Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald J. Trump, he has unequivocally shown where his priorities lie in the area of Domestic Policy.

In the case of Louisiana, Tee Time triumphed over compassion.

And, sipping a libation with a little umbrella in it at “the 19th Green” took priority over holding an American’s hands and saying, “I care.”.

Priorities, Priorities: Trump to Visit Americans in Flooded Louisiana. Obama and Hillary Golfing and Resting.

th1YUJE1B0Yesterday, the big story on the National News was that some ignorant Liberal “Artist” had sculpted naked statues of Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald J. Trump, placing them in several major cities, in an effort to show that “the emperor had no clothes”.

How can Trump be an “Emperor”? He holds no political power.

Anyway, besides being an absolutely ignorant, juvenile, and disgusting move, it has proven to be an object lesson in both karma and irony.

By the way, I heard that they sculpted a naked statue of Hillary also. However, for some reason it could not stand up on its own…and it frightened small children.

But, I digress…

Foxnews.com reports that

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.

Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.

Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”

“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this,” Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”

However, a spokesman for Louisiana’s governor said his office had not been contacted by the Trump campaign.

Richard Carbo, spokesman for Gov. John Bel Edwards, told the Associated Press Trump was welcome to Louisiana, “but not for a photo-op.” Instead, Carbo proposed Trump “consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of this storm.”

Earlier Thursday, the Baton Rouge Advocate called on President Barack Obama to cut short his Martha’s Vineyard vacation and visit the affected area. 

“The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking,” an editorial said. “It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to [Hurricane Katrina] in 2005, a chapter of history no one should ever repeat.”

In response, a senior White House official cited Louisiana Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, a Republican with a history of criticizing the Obama administration. 

“FEMA has been on the ground, and has really done a good job thus far through this disaster,” Nungesser told National Public Radio. “There’s been a huge change since Katrina in the response, in wanting to get people on the ground.”

Uh huh.

Well, I mean, after all, the President is too busy inspecting the local gold courses to be interrupted by disaster striking us “common folk”.

Especially us “ignorant rednecks” below the Mason/Dixon Line.

After all, as Boston.com reported earlier this week, a president has to have his priorities…

CHILMARK, Mass. (AP) — Adding a touch of politics to his vacation, President Barack Obama on Monday urged Democrats to campaign aggressively for the next 80 days to elect presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying “if we do not do our jobs, then it’s still possible for her to lose.”

“When I say do our jobs, what I mean is we are going to have to continue to be engaged, we are going to continue to have to write checks, we are going to continue to have to make phone calls and rally people behind her candidacy,” Obama said.

He also urged the Democratic donors at a Clinton fundraiser to help counter an “unrelenting negative campaign” against the former secretary of state “that has made a dent in the opinion of people even who are inclined to vote for her.”

Clinton’s standing among voters has suffered from perceptions that she is dishonest, along with her use of a private email server when she ran the State Department and the appearance of conflicts of interest between the department when she was in charge and her family foundation.

“We have to be aggressive in our campaign for 80 days, and that’s not a lot,” Obama said. “But when you think about the stakes, there’s nothing more important” than electing Clinton to continue the economic and other progress he described under his leadership.

Democrats Hank Goldberg and his wife, Carol Brown Goldberg, hosted the event at their home in Chilmark, the same town where the president is renting a vacation home. About 60 Obama and Clinton supporters paid between $10,000 and $33,400 to attend the event that was held in a tent on the sprawling property. Servers wore white aprons that said, “Thank You, President Obama.”

The proceeds will benefit Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties across the country.

Obama pointedly did not mention Donald Trump, Clinton’s Republican opponent, by name and said he’s tired of talking about the New York businessman he earlier this month dismissed as “unfit to serve.”

“I don’t have to make the case against her opponent because every time he talks he makes the case against his own candidacy,” Obama said.

The president said his wife, Michelle, is “very strict” about him actually being on vacation when he goes on vacation. But, he said, “she gave me special dispensation for this evening because she understands, just as all of you understand, how important this is.”

Obama is expected to campaign aggressively for Clinton in the fall run-up to the Nov. 8 elections.

Clinton did not join Obama at the fundraiser. Earlier Monday, she made her first campaign appearance with Vice President Joe Biden in his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, a state both she and Trump are competing to win.

Let this sink in for moment, boys and girls.

While Americans were suffering, a sitting President of the United States of America placed campaigning for his party’s Presidential Candidate, his potential successor to “the throne” above going to offer support and condolences to those Americans whose lives have been changed forever by a natural disaster.

Additionally, the before-mentioned Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, has chosen not to travel to that area, either, possibly due to the fact that not only is she unwilling to do so, the frail condition of her personal health will not allow her to.

The only one in this political scenario who is demonstrating that he actually cares about the people of Louisiana is Donald J. Trump, the American Businessman and Entrepreneur, the Citizen Statesman if you will, whom the President of the United States said was “unfit to serve”.

Irony is embarrassed.

Not since Marie Antoinette supposedly quipped that the starving French living under her and her husband’s rule should “eat cake”, has there been such an obvious disconnect between those in authority and “common folk”.

The fact of the matter is, these two representatives of “The Smartest and Most Caring People in the Room”, are once again showing to the American Public that they are neither smart nor caring.

Obama and Hillary both are looking like the Machiavellian Professional Politicians that they are.

They have clearly placed power before principle.

And, Trump, whom they have both claimed is “unfit to serve”, is making them both look very small.

Until He Comes,
