Newsmax.com reports that

The House this week will take up a resolution to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time in less than two years over his actions encouraging a mob that stormed the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi said in a letter Sunday to House Democrats. “As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

Pelosi said Democratic leaders on Monday will request unanimous consent for a separate resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to convene the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution “to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office.” She said Pence should respond within 24 hours.

More than 200 House Democrats have signed on to co-sponsor an impeachment resolution accusing Trump of “Incitement of Insurrection,” and says he engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States” in connection with the storming of the Capitol Wednesday by throngs of his supporters.

The 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution states that

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

This amendment was put in place to ensure a legal and aboveboard transfer of power incase the President were to become incapacitated to the point to where he could not fulfill his duties.

It was never meant to be used as a political weapon by one political party to get a president in good health out of the way, disgracing him just days before his term ends.

Speaking of political weapons, regarding Nancy Pelosi’s call to impeach President Trump AGAIN…according to constitution.congress.gov

At the time of ratification of the Constitution, the phrase high crimes and misdemeanors thus appears understood to have applied to uniquely political offenses, or misdeeds committed by public officials against the state. Alexander Hamilton, in explaining the Constitution’s impeachment provisions, described impeachable offenses as arising from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. Such offenses were Political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. In the centuries following the Constitution’s ratification, precisely what behavior constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor has been the subject of much debate.

Because of the vagueness of the definition of the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors”, Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite and the Vichy Republicans are using President Trump’s speech in which he invited the crowd to go and “peacefully protest” in front of the Capitol Building as a means to ensure that he can not run for President in 2024 and kick their butts again.

I cannot even imagine what it must have been like for President Trump and his family to have been subjected to the treatment which they have received since he declared that he was going to run for President.

I have never seen a United States President and his family subjected to the degradation and barbaric treatment which Donald J. Trump and his family have had to endure.

And now, after the Democrats and their Vichy Republican stooges have succeeded in driving Trump from office via means of an obviously rigged election, they want to pile on, in a display of tone-deaf arrogance that makes their cries for “unity” hysterically funny…if they weren’t so maddeningly sickening.

I believe that Pelosi and that bunch of losers who consider themselves to be “the smartest people in the room” are trying to goad average Americans living in the Heartland into another Civil War.

At this point, anything is possible.

Dick Morris: After this, Pence Won’t Be Able to “Get Nominated for Dog Catcher”, Will He Attend Biden Inauguration?

skynews-mike-pence-congress_5229612

 

Newsmax.com reports that

Former Democratic strategist and White House adviser Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Thursday that Vice President Mike Pence won’t be able to ”get nominated for dog catcher” after choosing to accept electors from disputed states and certify the Electoral College victory for Joe Biden.

 

Morris’ comment came in response to eponymous host Sean Spicer’s question about if criticism of Pence — who he said had been very loyal throughout President Donald Trump’s presidency — was unwarranted.

 

”That’s like asking ‘How did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln?’ after the assassination at Ford’s Theatre,” Morris said on ”Spicer & Co.” ”When the push came to shove, Mike Pence was as disloyal as you can get. He has a pure constitutional way of sending this stuff back to the legislators. He chose not to do it. I don’t think he could get nominated for dog catcher in the Republican Party.”

 

Morris, who has been a staunch ally and adviser to Trump, suggested the president enjoy the remainder of his presidency, reflect and relish his time in Florida.

 

”I think he could use a vacation,” Morris added. ”I think he’s going through stages of grief and depression, which includes anger, and I don’t think he’s doing himself any good by that. I think he’s had an incredible record as president. He’s done amazing things. And he should rest on those laurels, and begin to position himself for 2024.

 

”He should borrow a page from what Ronald Reagan did in ’77 after he lost the nomination to Gerald Ford. He set up a PAC. He set up a leadership committee and he worked on changing the Republican Party into one that was user friendly to him. … But for the next two weeks, he should be in Mar-a-Lago.”

 

In a related story from Newsmax.com

Vice President Mike Pence will make an appearance at Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, Politico reported citing unidentified sources, despite an official statement from his spokesman that he has not made any decision.

Politico said it had three unidentified ”sources close to Pence” tell them that he ”would likely make an appearance.”

Pence spokesman Devin O’Malley told Politico that the vice president and second lady “have not yet made a decision on their attendance.”

CNN, also quoting an anonymous source, reported that Pence was planning on attending but was awaiting an invitation. CNN added that Pence has ”faced pressure from many of those around him” to attend.

I was truly shocked when Mike Pence turned on President Donald J. Trump.

Perhaps, I shouldn’t have been.

The things who drew a lot of average Americans to literally fall in love with Candidate and then President Donald J. Trump was the fact that he was “one of us”.

He was not a professional politicians.

He knew how to laugh and he spoke to us, whether in one of his live appearances or on television, as if we were close friends who had known each other all of our lives.

He was authentic.

And now, it appears that his Vice-President, Mike Pence, is not.

And, that really disillusions me.

Pence proclaims himself to be a Christian.

Well, that’s not for me to judge.

However, he turned his back on a man whom Dr. James Dobson described after sitting down with him before the 2016 Presidential Election as “a new Christian”…to side with individuals who want to legalize full-term abortions and who believe in 36 genders.

One of the “Fruits (or Gifts) of the Holy Spirit” described in the Bible is that of “discernment”.

I think that Brother Pence needs to exchange his “gift of discernment” for one that actually works.

Vichy Republican Kinzinger Thinks That “Upwards of” 100 GOP Representatives Will Refuse to Certify Biden’s “Victory” on January 6th

Newsmax.com reports that

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., thinks “upwards of” 100 GOP lawmakers will vote to not accept Joe Biden’s victory when Congress convenes on Jan. 6 to count the Electoral College votes.

“I hope I’m wrong. I’m guessing it will be upwards of 100,” Kinzinger told Charlie Sykes Wednesday during an appearance on “The Bulwark Podcast.”

“I think you’re going to have some people that come out and take a strong stand but man, I hope I’m wrong. I’m not going to be surprised if it approaches three figures.”

Kinzinger, one of the few Republicans to speak out against the conspiracy theories President Donald Trump embraces surrounding the election, told Sykes that he’s “over the undermining of democracy and frankly, the massive damage that’s being done with this.

“It is a scam,” he said of the effort to get the election reversed, specifically calling out Rep-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, the pair of House Republicans leading the Jan. 6 effort.

“It is going to disappoint the people that believe this election was stolen, that think this is an opportunity to change it. But instead of being disappointed in the people that led them on this grifting scam, they’re going to somehow try to convince these people that it was the RINO’s in Congress or something like that and not the Constitution that prevents this from happening in the first place.

“All they’re doing is getting a ton of followers, raising a ton of money and they’re taking people that are hurting right now during a pandemic and taking their money from them, not because they’re telling them the truth but because they’re giving them false hope,” he added.

It is not a scam. It is a procedure, according to ConstitutionCenter.org…

Federal law requires the states to deliver certified electoral college results to the vice president, serving as president of the Senate, and other parties by December 23. Then a joint meeting of Congress is required by the 12th Amendment to count the electoral votes and declare the winners of the presidential election. The session on January 6, 2021 starts at 1 p.m.

Objections at that meeting about electors will be settled using a process established by the Electoral Count Act of 1887. The law has its origins in the contested presidential election of 1876 between Samuel Tilden and Rutherford B. Hayes. Several states during the 1876 election sent rival electoral ballots to be considered by Congress, which lacked a procedure to decide among contested slates of electors. The short-term solution was a special 15-person commission (including five House Representatives, five Senators, and five Supreme Court justices) to decide the election, which went to Hayes. In the end, the participating Supreme Court justices cast the deciding votes, after the House and Senate members voted on party lines.

The Electoral Count Act of 1887 and several federal statutes address questions about contested electors that land in Congress. The Congressional Research Service’s current interpretation of the Electoral Count Act explains its understanding of the process when it comes to objections to electoral votes.

“Objections to individual state returns must be made in writing by at least one Member each of the Senate and House of Representatives. If an objection meets these requirements, the joint session recesses and the two houses separate and debate the question in their respective chambers for a maximum of two hours,” the CRS said. “The two houses then vote separately to accept or reject the objection. They then reassemble in joint session, and announce the results of their respective votes. An objection to a state’s electoral vote must be approved by both houses in order for any contested votes to be excluded.”

Never-Trumper Kinzinger, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Vichy Republicans know that the election was rigged.

THEY DO NOT CARE.

To them, preserving the Washington Status Quo is more important that doing what is morally just and right.

Even after the magnificent job which President Donald J. Trump has done leading our nation over the last four years, these tone-deaf Vichy Republicans would rather have a demented old Democrat and his handlers running our country back into the same open grave which Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama dug for it.

Just look at the tone-deaf political game which Mitch McConnell is playing with the proposed dispersion of $2,000 COVID-19 Relief Funds to every American citizen.

Negotiation is fine.

But, Mitch’s timing just plain stinks to high Heaven.

Average Americans and small business owners are suffering economically from uneven Draconian policies when vary from state to state.

It is bad enough that Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats do not care about average Americans.

But, when Republicans revert back to being spineless jellyfish, instead of following the lead of their fellow Republican , who happens to be the 45th President of the United States, it makes for an intolerable situation and a non-functioning Legislative Branch of our Federal Government, which is supposed to write bills and pass laws based on OUR needs, not their own.

So, with both sides attempting to screw President Trump and average Americans royally, it will be up to Vice-President Mike Pence to bring order from chaos.

His choice will be to either preserve our Constitutional Republic or to allow the certification of an obviously-rigged Presidential Election, a move which would mean the end of America as we know it, setting the stage for a governmental shift to “Democratic Socialism”.

I pray that he makes the right one.

May God protect us all.

Are Democrats Beginning to Have a Feeling of Deja Vu About the 2020 Presidential Election? They’d Better

FoxNews.com reports that

Public polls show former Vice President Joe Biden entering the post-Labor Day sprint to November holding a substantial lead over President Trump — and all Democratic Party activists and operatives can think of is the looming sense of déjà vu hanging over their heads.

In interviews, those who work on Democratic campaigns voice suspicion over Biden’s lead, confident that something else will go wrong just as it did four years ago when Hillary Clinton’s advantage evaporated in the weeks leading up to Election Day. Many go so far as to compare their skepticism to a form of post-traumatic stress.


“It’s just PTSD,” said Steve Schale, a Florida Democratic strategist who runs a pro-Biden super PAC. “There’s nobody actually working on this race that feels overly confident at this point. There’s a long way to go.”


Some Democrats worried that Trump’s focus on protests in big cities would swing an electorate that has so far paid more attention to the botched handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic downturn. 

But a new round of polls show Biden maintaining his advantage after both the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Since the end of the GOP convention, Biden has led public surveys in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, Wisconsin and Florida. Trump has led in one survey of Florida voters, and the two men are tied in another, released Tuesday by NBC News.


Nationally, Biden’s post-convention lead stands anywhere between 2 points, in an Emerson survey, and 10 points, in polls conducted by Quinnipiac University, the University of Southern California and CBS News.


Democrats say they aren’t buying it.


“The polls are good omens, but if you didn’t think Trump could win in 2016 and you don’t trust him now given all his administration has done to break trust with American citizens, then you’re hesitant to call it,” said Katy Siddall, a Democratic strategist in Iowa, another state where polls have showed a surprisingly close race.


…“In 2016, it was cool to criticize people raising concerns in the Clinton-Trump polling as ‘bed-wetters’ and confidently point to the blue wall. Today that’s not really an acceptable point of view, so instead everyone is over-indexing for doom and gloom,” said Andy Barr, who runs a Democratic consulting firm in Arizona. “As an industry we’re always more cocky after winning the previous cycle and always more nervous after losing.”


But with hindsight, Democrats say they underestimated Trump’s appeal to voters and that some may have allowed their certainty that he could not win to get the better of them.

There is no such apathy this year.


“Democrats could almost not conceive of a path to a loss,” said Joe Zepecki, a Wisconsin-based Democratic strategist. “It’s better to be holding a statistically significant lead and be nervous as all hell than to hold a modest lead and not be nervous at all.”


Democrats also marvel at the zeal that Trump’s most committed fans show. Flotilla parades, like one this weekend on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas, that inadvertently sank five boats, are easy punch lines, but the Trump flags that fly from homes are not so easily dismissed.


“The devotion of Trump voters, the many flags and homemade signs they fly, and the level of ardor they are showing is remarkable. Those visible signs you don’t usually see for a political candidate,” said Dave Waymire, a Michigan-based operative. “You see those signs and go, whoa.”


Some party strategists roll their eyes at the constant paranoia, the sense that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. But they say they can use those nerves to keep up a frenetic pace through Election Day.


“The wild swings between complacency and panic are not helpful, but I’d rather have people be nervous than take anything for granted,” said Josh Schwerin, a senior adviser to Priorities USA, the largest Democratic super PAC. “Our expectation is that the race will tighten as we get closer to Election Day, and it’s going to take a level-headed grind from everyone involved to win this thing.”


Every four years, presidential contenders tell their voters that the upcoming election is the most important in their lifetime. This time, as the pandemic spreads and the economy lies in tatters, the party strategists working on the race believe it to their core.


“The stakes are just off the charts,” said Brian Brokaw, who ran Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-Calif.) 2010 campaign for state attorney general. “It’s better to be up in the polls than down, but on the other hand at this point we’re smart enough to know that you can never get comfortable.”

I do not believe that the Democratic Analysts are any more aware of the political opinions of average Americans living in the Heartland than they were 4 years ago.

Today’s Democrats, for all of their “common man” B.S., still believe that all of America is like the Northeastern Beltway and the Left Coast…and it they aren’t, they should be.

If the Democrats were confident in he ability of Biden and Harris to win in November, they would have to have their minions in the Main Stream Media publish fake news stories featuring anonymous sources designed to bring President Trump down or at least hurt his reelection campaign.

Their plans to bring Trump down have all failed and will continue to fail.

The devotion of “Trump fans” which the Democrats have “noticed” is not being swayed by the Democrats’ fake news stories and propaganda videos.

Average Americans, just as they did in 2016, are paying attention to what they see and hear on Fox News, OANN, and social Media.

That is why Trump continues to pack them in at his MAGA Rallies and Biden can’t fill a church in Kenosha.

Americans still vote with their pocket books. They can see that the economy is coming back.

They also know who is going to increase their taxes in order to “share the wealth”.

The false bravado of Kamala Harris notwithstanding, the Dems know that they are going to lose again to Donald J. Trump unless they can limit the appearances of both Biden and Harris, who have become liabilities.

And, even that has not helped.

It is hard to hide the fact that Biden is suffering from dementia and that Harris has the personality of a cheese grater.

I know…they could have them both drop out due to “Health Concerns” and have “Mooch” Obama and “San Fran Nan” Pelosi run in their place.

Oh, wait…that would not be any better, would it?

Some Progressive Political Activists Are Not Happy That Biden Picked Harris

kamala-harris-california

https://twitter.com/Lrihendry/status/1293312053583675397?s=20

FoxNews.com reports that

Some progressives expressed their frustration and condemnation of Joe Biden’s selection of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate.

Ever since Biden became the presumptive Democratic nominee, there has been an ongoing debate on the left as to who he could pick as his vice president that can motivate enough of the base, including supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to support the ticket in November.

On Tuesday, Biden announced that Harris would be his vice president.

Sanders himself extended his support for his Senate colleague and former 2020 rival.

“Congratulations to @KamalaHarris, who will make history as our next Vice President. She understands what it takes to stand up for working people, fight for health care for all, and take down the most corrupt administration in history. Let’s get to work and win,” the Vermont senator tweeted.

However, several Bernie supporters and other progressive journalists slammed the Biden-Harris ticket.

Briahna Joy Gray, who previously served as Sanders’ national press secretary and has been an outspoken critic of Biden since her former boss withdrew from the race, invoked Harris’ tenure as the California attorney general.

“We are in the midst of the largest protest movement in American history, the subject of which is excessive policing, and the Democratic Party chose a “top cop” and the author of the Joe Biden crime bill to save us from Trump. The contempt for the base is, wow,” Gray reacted.

Left-leaning journalist Michael Tracey called Biden’s selection a “nightmarishly bad pick in every way.”

“Kamala’s presidential campaign was a total humiliating disaster. One of the worst of all time, considering the amount of unearned hype she received. Did everybody miss that, or what?” Tracey asked.

“Well, there you have it. @JoeBiden gives the middle finger to progressives, #BlackLivesMatter protesters, and black voters under the age of 50,” Status Coup co-founder Jordan Chariton tweeted.

“Crime bill author Joe Biden selects ‘top cop’ Kamala Harris for VP as racial justice and police abolition protests continue across the country,” progressive journalist Walker Bragman wrote.

“Apparently the answer to a movement for black lives is someone who helped perpetuate a lock em up regime while letting the powerful in Silicon Valley and Wall Streeters like Steve Mnuchin loot with impunity. Happy 2020,” The Hill’s Krystal Ball wrote.

“Biden going with the strategically brilliant move of picking somebody for VP who is despised by both the right and the left,” progressive commentator Kyle Kulinski quipped.

“This is when everyone who either said they would never vote for Bernie in the general or argued that he could never win bc he’s a socialist Jew will attack anyone criticizing Harris for strategic or moral reasons as handing the election to Trump,” podcast host Katie Halper tweeted.

So, we have quite a Presidential ticket on the Democrat side…a serial groper and a woman who, as Roseanne Barr described her to Candace Owens, “slept her way to he bottom”.

Yesterday morning, the following story ran on nypost.com

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown has urged ex-girlfriend Sen. Kamala Harris to reject presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden if he asks her to be his running mate.

In an op-ed published in the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend, Brown advised his ex to “politely decline” Biden’s vice presidential offer, arguing that she should instead aim for US attorney general.

“Harris is a tested and proven campaigner who will work her backside off to get Biden elected. That said, the vice presidency is not the job she should go for — asking to be considered as attorney general in a Biden administration would be more like it,” Brown wrote of the California Democrat, who is widely considered to be the front-runner in the VP race.

Brown, 86, argued that while being included on a presidential ticket “is obviously a huge honor … the glory would be short-lived.”

“Historically, the vice presidency has often ended up being a dead end. For every George H.W. Bush, who ascended from the job to the presidency, there’s an Al Gore, who never got there.”

By the way, Willie Brown was still married while he and Kamala Harris were “dating”.

Classy, huh?

During the upcoming campaign, Harris will probably describe herself as a “progressive prosecutor”, according to University of San Francisco Law Professor Lara Bazelon, in an article she wrote for the New York Times, which was published on January 17, 2019, don’t you believe it.

Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.

Consider her record as San Francisco’s district attorney from 2004 to 2011. Ms. Harris was criticized in 2010 for withholding information about a police laboratory technician who had been accused of “intentionally sabotaging” her work and stealing drugs from the lab. After a memo surfaced showing that Ms. Harris’s deputies knew about the technician’s wrongdoing and recent conviction, but failed to alert defense lawyers, a judge condemned Ms. Harris’s indifference to the systemic violation of the defendants’ constitutional rights.

Ms. Harris contested the ruling by arguing that the judge, whose husband was a defense attorney and had spoken publicly about the importance of disclosing evidence, had a conflict of interest. Ms. Harris lost. More than 600 cases handled by the corrupt technician were dismissed.

Impressive legal career? Hardly.

As the Fox News article above shows, her behavior as prosecutor is not going to make her a popular Vice-residential choice among the members of Black Lives Matter.

Come to think of it, her beneficial “romance” with a married man is not going o endear her to black church-going Americans, either.

Okay, so to say that the choice of Harris as VP Candidate is going to offend some Democrats is an understatement. And, that being the case, her and Sleepy Joe are going t have to present a united front.

But, can they?

Yesterday, FoxNews.com posted the following reminder…

Sen. Kamala Harris, who was announced as presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate on Tuesday, once said that she believed women who accused Biden of inappropriate touching.

“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” the California senator told reporters in April 2019.

Biden had been accused by a number of women of inappropriate touching and kissing, including by a Nevada politician who said he came up behind her at a 2014 campaign stop and kissed her on the back of her head.

“He’s going to have to make that decision for himself,” Harris said when asked if Biden, who hadn’t announced a presidential bid at the point, should still run. “I wouldn’t tell him what to do.”

Well, I was going to call Kamala Harris a hypocrite for accepting the offer to be Sleepy Joe’s VP.

But, considering the fact that she not only was “in a relationship” with a married man but flaunted it around town and as prosecutor she violated defendant’s rights, I would say that she really does not have a moral and ethical stance which she could betray through hypocrisy.

That being said, she and the serial groper should get along just fine.

Trump and Pence Join Over 700 Pastors on Conference Call to Pray for Strength and Stamina During Coronavirus Pandemic

Open Bible on American Flag

Here is a story that you probably did not hear about in the Main Stream Media.

ChristianPost.com reports that

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence joined over 700 pastors on a conference call Friday to pray for strength and stamina amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.

In a one-hour call organized by the Christian conservative activist group Family Research Council, Trump told pastors that the outbreak “came upon us so suddenly.” 

“[W]e were doing better than we’ve ever done before as a country in terms of the economy — and then, all of the sudden, we got hit with this,” Trump was quoted as saying by FRC President Tony Perkins. “So we had to close it down.”

“We’re actually paying a big price to close it down,” Trump continued. “Never happened before.”

However, Trump assured the religious leaders that he believes “we’re going to come back stronger than ever before.”

“I want to thank you for praying for our country and for those who are sick,” the president said. “You do such an incredible job. You’re very inspirational people. And I’m with you all the way. You know that you see what we’ve done for right to life and all of the things that we’ve been working so hard together. I’ve been working with many of the people on the call. Many, many of the people. We’ve had tremendous support. But we are going to get over this.”

Pence told the pastors that when he informed Trump that he was going to be on the call with pastors on Friday, Trump asked if he could join despite a full schedule.

“When I told the president I was going to be speaking to all of you, [he was] in the midst of an extraordinarily busy day. [But] he looked at me and said, ‘I have to find time. I need to find time,’” Pence told the pastors. “[T]he prayers of the people on this call mean [everything] to him.”

Before leaving the call, Perkins asked the president what he’d most like people to pray for during this time of crisis and uncertainty. Trump replied by urging the pastors to pray for the “health” and “strength” of the country.

“We were doing something amazing, and then one day, it just ended. So that would be it,” Trump said, urging Americans to “make the right choice” on [election day], Nov. 3. 

Pence told the pastors that he and the president “couldn’t be more inspired by the way communities of faith have been stepping up.”

According to Perkins, Pence talked about how congregations are keeping their food banks going and finding ways to work within the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pence also thanked churches for offering child care to healthcare workers on the front line of battling the coronavirus.

“You know, the president has said many times that we are going to bring the full resources of our federal government to bear on this,” the vice president said. “But by all of you being here today, and by the energies and ministries that you have [used to respond] to the coronavirus in your communities, you’re really putting hands and feet on your faith. And you are demonstrating what the president today called ‘the greatness of American character.’”

Pence said that “we want a full partnership with you in sharing best practices again.”

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson also participated in the call. According to Perkins, Carson told the pastors that “God is merciful.” 

“And we will get through this,” Carson assured, adding that this could be an opportunity for God to show His power in a way that will “help us return to Him.”

“God still has His hand on this nation,” Carson was quoted as saying.  “And He has His hand on all of us.”

According to the Christian Broadcasting Network, pastors discussed during the call ways in which churches can assemble during the coronavirus outbreak when so many of them have halted in-person worship services. 

While several churches have moved services online, others have held “drive-in” worship services to maintain social distancing. 

During the call, Trump, Pence and Carson encouraged churches to comply with federal guidelines. Pence thanked pastors for suspending their services during the outbreak and said that he would encourage Americans to continue giving to churches and ministries even though they may not be attending in person. 

In a White House press briefing on Saturday, Pence formally urged Americans to continue giving to ministries during the outbreak.

On Tuesday, Trump drew criticism when he said that he wanted the U.S. to be “opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” which is just over two-and-a-half weeks away. However, some health experts have warned that more time may be needed to curb the spread of the virus.

With the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic claiming the lives of more and more Americans, the Democratic Elite and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media  continue to wonder why the President’s Job Approval Polls are not dropping but rather rising and why Americans are not buying what they are so desperately attempting to sell.

Perhaps it has to do with what Dr. James Dobson, the Christian Leader who founded “Focus on the Family” said before the 2016 Presidential Election about Trump’s faith.

Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No. Do I know the details of that alleged conversion? I can’t say that I do. But there are many Christian leaders who are serving on a faith advisory committee for Trump in the future. I am among them. There are about 25 of us that include Jerry Falwell, Jr., Robert Jeffress, Jack Graham, Ben Carson, James Robison, Michele Bachmann, and many others whom you would probably know. We’ve all agreed to serve. How will that play out if Trump becomes president? I don’t know. It is a good start, I would think.

If anything, this man is a baby Christian who doesn’t have a clue about how believers think, talk and act. All I can tell you is that we have only two choices, Hillary or Donald. Hillary scares me to death. And, if Christians stay home because he isn’t a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought of that haunts my nights and days. One thing is sure: we need to be in prayer for our nation at this time of crisis.

Dr. Dobson was not alone.

The thought of Hillary becoming President of the United States of America scared a lot of Americans…and still does.

But, I digress…

So, why are Christian Americans still supporting President Trump?

Our Salvation is not determined by the support of our American President…but, by God’s Grace.

As Christians we are instructed to individually listen to that “Still Small Voice” inside us.

While Christians, in church and outside of it, represent the corporate Body of Christ, according to scripture, we each possess the Spiritual Gifts of Free Will and Discernment.

These gifts are used by each of us on a daily basis, including aiding in our decision to continue to support President Trump.

Unlike Liberals and Marxists (but, I may be repeating myself), we do not make our political decisions or vote as a collective, nor should we.

There were no Saints who ran in 2016 for the President of the United States of America, on either side.

And, there are certainly no Saints vying to be the Democratic Party Candidate for President in 2020.

Our choice in 2016 was between a flawed man, as we all are, and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.

When President Trump, watches a church service online or on television, like a lot of us will on this Palm Sunday, he is not in the company of Saints. He is sitting in a Virtual Hospital for Sinners.

The Modern American Liberals of the Democratic Party continue to act as if they are holier-than-thou, while believing in relative morality and situational ethics.

They still have not figured it out.

no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD.” – Isaiah 54:17 (ESV)

Like the rest of us Christians, President Trump does not have to be perfect…just FORGIVEN.

And, if you object to President Trump and Vice-President Pence talking to and praying with 700 Pastors about the dire situation which our nation finds itself in…

You just simply do not have a clue.

I’m just sayin’.

Rush: MSM Reporting Coronavirus Like an Oncoming Hurricane in Order to Blame Trump…Until They Can’t

map-cases-us_json&theme=theme-cyan&host=www_cdc

From CDC.gov

Updated March 10, 2020

This page will be updated regularly at noon Mondays through Fridays. Numbers close out at 4 p.m. the day before reporting.

CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The outbreak first started in Wuhan, China, but cases have been identified in a growing number of other locations internationally, including the United States. In addition to CDC, many public health laboratories are now testing for the virus that causes COVID-19.

COVID-19: U.S. at a Glance*
Total cases: 647
Total deaths: 25
Jurisdictions reporting cases: 36 (includes District of Columbia)
* Data include both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 reported to CDC or tested at CDC since January 21, 2020, with the exception of testing results for persons repatriated to the United States from Wuhan, China and Japan. State and local public health departments are now testing and publicly reporting their cases. In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.

According to the CDC, 528 of the cases which have been reported are still under investigation.

The states which have been hardest hit at New York with 142 reported cases, Washington State with 162, and California with 135.

My state of birth, Tennessee, has 5 cases reported, driving the Demcrats in my Hometown of Memphis to wrap themselves in garbage bags to go out in public and to spray their children down with Lysol and Clorox.

And, as Forrest Gump said, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that”.

The state in which I live, Mississippi, does not have any cases reported.

Conservative Talk Show Legend, Rush Limbaugh, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (I love writing that!) made the following astute observation on yesterday’s program…

You know, watching the coverage of this and the ongoing effort to create a panic — and let’s make no mistake here that that’s exactly what is happening here — I finally came up with what I think is a good analogy. The coronavirus is like a hurricane several days away from making landfall.Take your pick of any hurricane out there in recent memory — if you want to use Katrina, any hurricane — and then remember how the media covers it. “It’s going to devastate wherever it’s headed. It’s gonna just obliterate! It’s a Cat 5. It’s going to mean total destruction.” No one knows the strength when it hits, despite their predictions. No one knows where it’s gonna hit. No one knows when.

Our forecasts have gotten better, but it’s still a gigantic crapshoot, particularly the farther out at sea the hurricane is. But the media knows that it’s gonna deliver clicks, it’s gonna deliver hits, it’s gonna deliver massive headlines, it’s gonna create massive attention by the public. It will deliver eyeballs — and they know they can blame Trump, right up until the moment they can’t. They know.

They know and they salivate over the chance to blame Trump. You’ve got an oncoming hurricane here. The outer bands have begun to strike the Continental United States. The evidence is there! They’ve got the reporters out on the beaches out on the Outer Banks, for example, of North Carolina, and they’re showing us the waves are about six inches higher than usual.

“See, it’s coming! It’s coming! There may be a flood here, a flood there. The initial reports of damage are coming in, and it all means it’s gonna be a grand disaster.” The Drive-Bys are all collected out on the beach. Their cameras are pointed westward, eastward, wherever it takes to get this hurricane, any indication of it whatsoever. The same thing was true of the impeachment hearings. The same exact thing was true of the impeachment hearings.

All we had was hearsay evidence.

We had endless speculation.

The same thing was true with the Russia-Trump collusion story. There was never any evidence, there was never a shred of evidence, and yet look at what we were told was coming. The walls were closing in on Donald Trump! We had these endless anonymous sources from the intelligence community who were telling us that it was only a matter of time before the evidence would be forthcoming.

Hearsay evidence before the impeachment hearings, endless speculation.

It was the same thing with the Mueller report.

The coronavirus is one of those moments for the Drive-By Media, and just as a hurricane is an opportunity to blame people who don’t believe in climate change — man-made climate change. Just as a hurricane is exaggerated and built up and lied about before anybody knows its true strength and nature in order to advance a political agenda (i.e., climate change), coronavirus is being used to advance the agenda that Donald Trump:

A. Doesn’t care about you; he only cares about himself.

B. Donald Trump is incompetent.

C. Donald Trump’s not taking it seriously enough.

D. You might die; it’s all gonna be Donald Trump’s fault.

E. It’s an opening for the Democrats!

It’s an opportunity for the Democrats, just like impeachment was an opportunity for the Democrats, like the Mueller hearings an opportunity for the Democrats, and a gigantic hurricane is an opportunity for the Democrats and the climate change crowd. So the coronavirus is one of these moments.

This is the pattern. This is what Drive-By Media is. This is the utter definition. You’re looking at it here. The problem for them is, they have been wrong every time during the Trump administration. They have been wrong about every dire prediction they have made, and they have made these predictions with ontological certitude.

Per usual, Rush is absolutely correct.

The problem is that in their attempt to bring down the President, the MSM is scaring a lot of average Americans half to death.

Monday, my wife, having had enough of watching me go to work last week while seriously ill, after being up all night coughing and running fever, took advantage of both of us being off for a few days to chauffeur me to the doctor’s office.

One of my longtime doctor’s nurse practitioners, a very smart and nice young lady, asked me what was going on.

Being a severe asthmatic, I already knew: asthmatic bronchitis.

So, she listened to my chest and looked at the chart to see what my temperature and blood pressure were and smiled at me and said, “You’re right.” I then had a couple of x-rays to make sure that it was not pneumonia.

Needless to say, I got a Steroid Sinus Cocktail shot and was sent home with some more prednisone and an antibiotic to knock it out.

I told her about the column I write everyday and I asked her about what effect the coronavirus was having on their office in East Memphis.

She said that a great number of their elderly patients and some not so elderly were calling in wanting Coronavirus Vaccines which have not even been developed, yet.

She also agreed with me that the flu kills more Americans on a yearly basis than the coronavirus will and that the reports of the virus were being used as a political weapon.

As my wife and I were leaving the office, I was looking at the average Americans sitting in the waiting room.

I was wondering what kind of people would use a virus as a political weapon, affecting the lives of innocent Americans, without giving them a second thought.

And then, I remembered how Lenin, Stalin, and Mao acquired power through fear.

And, I just shook my head as I got into our car and we headed to the pharmacy.

Strzok/Page Texts Show They Discussed Sending Spies to Trump Briefings After Election

FBI-Strzok-Page-1

FoxNews.com reports that

Text messages between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page indicate they discussed using briefings to the Trump team after the 2016 election to identify people they could “develop for potential relationships,” track lines of questioning and “assess” changes in “demeanor” – language one GOP lawmaker called “more evidence” of irregular conduct in the original Russia probe.

Fox News has learned the texts, initially released in 2018 by a Senate committee, are under renewed scrutiny, with GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Homeland Security Committee chair Ron Johnson sending a letter Thursday night to Attorney General Bill Barr pushing for more information on the matter.

“Any improper FBI surveillance activities that were conducted before or after the 2016 election must be brought to light and properly addressed,” the senators wrote.

President Trump, speaking to Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday night, responded to this report by unloading on Strzok and Page.

“They were trying to infiltrate the administration,” Trump told host Sean Hannity. “Really, it’s a coup. It’s spying. It’s hard to believe in this country we would have had that.” Trump called the news “very disconcerting,” and emphasized that the Justice Department’s watchdog previously faulted Strzok’s communications with Page.

The text messages begin on the evening of Nov. 17 — nine days after the election. The string discusses an email and briefing to “Pence,” presumably Vice President-elect Mike Pence – and appears to refer to another upcoming briefing.

The messages show Strzok and Page debating staffing for the upcoming briefing and whether it would make sense to stay with the same agent or send a different one. It is unclear from the texts whether these were part of the formal transition-period briefings between outgoing or incoming administrations or routine intelligence briefings.

“Re above re email, it might be more important for (redacted) to know that (redacted) briefed Pence, no?” Page writes.

Strzok responds: “I think that’s a good idea. I”ll talk with (redacted) so they build messaging/don’t overlap.”

The texts continue with Strzok telling Page he consulted “Bill” – a possible reference to his supervisor, Bill Priestap – about who to send to handle the briefing.

Strzok: “Talking with Bill. Do we want (redacted) to go with (redacted) instead of (redacted) for a variety of [reasons]?”

Page: “Hmm. Not sure. Would it be unusual to have show up again? Maybe another agent from the team?”

Strzok: “Or, he’s ‘the CI [counter-intelligence] guy.’ Same.might make sense. He can assess if [there] are any new Qs, or different demeanor. If (redacted’s) husband is there, he can see if there are people we can develop for potential relationships.”

Lawyers for Strzok and Page did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Barr was criticized by Democrats for testifying earlier this month that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign – an apparent reference to a well-documented surveillance warrant against Trump adviser Carter Page, among other incidents.

The incestuous nature of the Deep State’s Silent Coup Attempt and the intricacies of its covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why they continue to attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election to this very day.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens remain under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by members of our own Department of Justice.

I believe that it is way past time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos, to assuage their hurt and anger from a lost Presidential Election, and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.

I also believe that simply calling McCade, Comey, et al, back in front of Congressional Committees will not accomplish anything.

Attorney General Barr needs to ramp up his investigation of the Silent Coup Attempt and convene a special Grand Jury to investigate and indict all of those former and present “public servants” who have engaged in this Seditious Conspiracy to subjugate the will of the American people and to overthrow our nation’s government from within.

Our Sovereign Nation must remain a Constitutional Republic in order to preserve our liberty.

Libs Attack VP Pence and Wife for Her Part-Time Job at Christian School…First Covington, Now This…

pence

“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while but I have to tell you, to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive. We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined. We celebrate it. The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution prohibits a religious test for holding public office, so we’ll let the critics roll off our back. But this criticism of Christian education in America should stop.” – Vice-President Mike Pence

FoxNews.com reports that

Lady Gaga took time out of one of her performances in Las Vegas over the weekend to sound off on the Trump administration, specifically Vice President Mike Pence for his wife’s decision to work at a school with anti-LGBTQ policies.

The “Born This Way” singer broke during a performance of the song “Million Reasons” to speak about the president and vice president before jumping right back into her set.

“If the f—ing president of the United States could please put our government back in business,” she said during the break.

The star continued by discussing the federal workers who are living paycheck-to-paycheck needing their money amid the ongoing government shutdown. From there, she launched into the real crux of her tirade, the Pence family.

“To Mike Pence, who thinks it’s acceptable that his wife work at a school that bans LGBTQ,” she said. “You are wrong.”

Pence previously spoke out against the backlash his wife was receiving for her new job, tweeting ”We’ll let the critics roll off our back. But the criticism of Christian education in America must stop.”

Gaga, who recently won a Golden Globe for best original song for her work on “A Star is Born,” continued her onstage musings by denouncing Pence’s defense of his wife and the school.

“’You say we should not discriminate against Christianity — you are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian,” she said. “I am a Christian woman and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome.”

She concluded saying: “So you can take all that disgrace Mr. Pence and you can look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”

From there, the star made a quick comment on how far off track the setlist had gone and jumped right back into her performance while the crowd cheered her on.

Between this unprovoked attack by “That’s no lady. That’s a man, baby!” Gaga and the attack by Nathan Phillips and the Main Stream and Social Media against the students from #CovingtonCatholic, you have probably noticed that the New Bolsheviks of the Far Left Democratic Party absolutely HATE Christian Americans.

This is nothing new.

During the Obama Administration, I wrote an ongoing series of articles highlighting “The War on Christianity” being waged on an almost daily basis by that President and his Administration, along with the Democratic Party’s minions in the Main Stream Media.

Now, we have a President and Vice-President, who, gasp, actually support Christianity in America and are not shy about invoking the Name of God Almighty in their public speeches.

Heaven forbid! Well…Heaven doesn’t forbid…it encourages.

However, the self-appointed Pharisees of the Far Left certainly want to.

The thought of an omnipresent God interferes with Modern Liberals’ belief that they are the most important thing in the universe.

You see, as long as they are the master of their own destiny, which in fact they are, because God gives us free will, their selfish behavior and their sinful lifestyle, present no personal consequences to them, and therefore, do not keep them awake at night. And yet, when you enter into a conversation with a member of this hedonistic generation, you soon find out that they aren’t as personally happy with their lifestyle choices, as they want you to believe that they are. Consequently, this whole effort by Political and Social Liberals alike, to push a new set of morals, values, and ethics on average Christian Americans, stems from the fact that they are all miserable, selfish, little cretins, who want their poor lifestyle choices validated and deemed as normal.

As I have stated before, America remains 75% Christian. And, this fact drives the Far left, including the current “Selfish Generation”, absolutely crazy….and desperate.

The Pharisitical reaction of these Liberals to Vice-President Pence’s wife working at a Christian School which actually teaches the Bible along with Readin’, Writin’, and ‘Rithmetic, boggles the mind…but, it shouldn’t.

The disconnect shown by the self-appointed tribunal of all that is Liberally deemed to be acceptable Christianity is the same exact disconnect shown by the East and Left Coasts in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Unlike Modern Liberalism, Christianity as practiced by Americans is not just one “flavor”, or a “Hive-mind”, if you will.

And, while Lady Gaga and the rest of them are having a great time sitting in judgment of Vice-President Pence and his wife and their relationship with Our Lord and Savior, the overwhelming majority of Americans who proclaim Him to be their Savior, as well, have become offended by the intolerance of those who bill themselves as being the most tolerant people in any room that they walk into.

For you see, gentle readers, Christianity has never been about who can talk the talk.

It’s about walking The Walk.

Mike Pence and his wife walk The Walk.

And, like the Liberal Woman whom they supported in the 2016 Presidential Election, it is very apparent that the Modern Day Pharisees of the Democratic Party and their propaganda Arm the Main Stream Media, only talk the talk.

And, in the end, as history is their witness, they will appear to have overestimated their collective intelligence, also.

George Will, Mike Pence, and Why the DC Elite Just Doesn’t Get It

Mike Pence

Last Wednesday, triblive.com ran an editorial by Former Republican and self-proclaimed Conservative George Will, in which he attacked Vice-President Mike Pence.

Here is the hit piece…

Donald Trump, with his feral cunning, knew. Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America’s most repulsive public figure. And Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge.

Because his is the authentic voice of today’s lickspittle Republican party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing.

Last June, a Trump Cabinet meeting featured testimonials offered to Dear Leader by his forelock-tugging colleagues. His chief of staff, Reince Priebus, caught the spirit of the worship service by thanking Trump for the “blessing” of being allowed to serve him. The hosannas poured forth from around the table, unredeemed by even a scintilla of insincerity.

Pence chimed in but saved his best riff for a December Cabinet meeting when, as The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake calculated, Pence praised Trump once every 12 seconds for three minutes: “I’m deeply humbled. …” Judging by the number of times Pence announces himself “humbled,” he might seem proud of his humility, but that is impossible because he is conspicuously devout and pride is a sin.

Between those two Cabinet meetings, Pence and his retinue flew to Indiana for the purpose of walking out of an Indianapolis Colts football game, thereby demonstrating that football players kneeling during the national anthem are intolerable to someone of Pence’s refined sense of right and wrong. Which brings us to his Arizona salute last week to Joe Arpaio, who was sheriff of Maricopa County until in 2016 voters wearied of his act.

Noting that Arpaio was in his Tempe audience, Pence, oozing unctuousness from every pore, called Arpaio “another favorite,” professed himself “honored” by Arpaio’s presence, and praised him as “a tireless champion of … the rule of law.” Arpaio, a grandstanding bully and darling of the thuggish right, is also a criminal, convicted of contempt of court for ignoring a federal judge’s order to desist from certain illegal law enforcement practices. Pence’s performance occurred eight miles from the home of John McCain, who could teach Pence — or perhaps not — something about honor.

Henry Adams said that “practical politics consists in ignoring facts,” but what was the practicality in Pence’s disregard of the facts about Arpaio? His pandering had no purpose beyond serving Pence’s vocation, which is to ingratiate himself with his audience of the moment. The audience for his praise of Arpaio was given to chanting “Build the wall!” and applauded Arpaio.

It is said that one cannot blame people who applaud Arpaio and support his rehabilitators (Trump, Pence, etc.) because, well, globalization or health care costs or something. Actually, one must either blame them or condescend to them as lacking moral agency. Republicans silent about Pence have no such excuse.

There will be negligible legislating by the next Congress, so ballots cast this November will be most important as validations or repudiations of the harmonizing voices of Trump, Pence, Arpaio and the like. Trump is what he is, a floundering, inarticulate jumble of gnawing insecurities and not-at-all compensating vanities, which is pathetic. Pence is what he has chosen to be, which is horrifying.

A Christian American Conservative is horrifying?

I’ve always thought that we were pretty cool.

But, I digress…

Remember, this is the same snob who wrote the following about good old-fashioned American blue jeans on April 16, 2009:

Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances. But the appearances that people choose to present in public are cues from which we make inferences about their maturity and respect for those to whom they are presenting themselves.

…Today it is silly for Americans whose closest approximation of physical labor consists of loading their bags of clubs into golf carts to go around in public dressed for driving steers up the Chisholm Trail to the railhead in Abilene.

This is not complicated. For men, sartorial good taste can be reduced to one rule: If Fred Astaire would not have worn it, don’t wear it. For women, substitute Grace Kelly.

If it had been up to Beltway Boys like Mr. Will, Conservatives would have behaved like good little sheeple and shut up and voted for Jeb! in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primaries.

Elitist snobs like George Will will never understand the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

They thought for sure that Hillary had it won.

Remember the faces of the Talking Heads on MSNBC that fateful night?

As soon as Trump’s victory was announced, I switched from watching Fox News to MSNBC just to have the satisfaction of seeing the looks on their faces of disbelief.

It was great.

Just like the Modern American Liberals in the Democratic Party, the GOP Elite, including, at the time, George Will, believed that there was no way that Trump would become President and resigned themselves to the “fact” that Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States of America.

To snobs like George Will, the results were “horrifying”.

As you can see by reading his editorial, Will, like the rest of his co-workers at MSNBC have not gotten over the fact that Trump is President and that Mike Pence is his Vice-President.

Just imagine…a President and Vice-President who actually love America and her citizens,

And, who unashamedly reference the God of Abraham in their speeches as being the Author of our FREEDOM.

Why, how “gauche”.

How, “horrifying”.

WHAT A BLESSING.

Enjoy the next seven and one-half years, Mr. Will.

We “horrifying” Christian American Conservatives sure will.
