What Middle America is Talking About: President Trump

For the past 10 years, I’ve been meeting with a group of friends at our local coffee shop in my Midwestern town. Each morning, we talk about a very heated subject… POLITICS! Since 2008 and up until Primaries and General Election of last year, it has been a very depressing conversation with all that President Obama has turned, our once great nation, in to.

When Donald J. Trump decided to throw his hat in the ring, I was ecstatic. Finally, a non-politician that  owes nothing to the political elite and their donors. I knew I wasn’t alone in my thinking, but it took a good year to convince my buddies that he is the right man at the right time and that he can win. Each day, I took a beating from my friends. Most were ticked off at what the past 8 years had brought us but they were looking for a more “conventional” candidate. Me, I was looking for a bull in a China shop. I wanted what Trump was. Non PC, average Joe billionaire. Right away, I connected with him. I loved the way he went after the Mainstream Media, kicked Jorge Ramos out of a press conference, called Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary”. I loved that he was his own man and had a pulse for what the forgotten man and women wanted and needed in a President.

I’ve been a Republican since I was old enough to vote. I thought John McCain was great in 2008- but he didn’t know how to close it out. I thought Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, were excellent picks for GOP President and Vice Presidential candidates. Again, they let me down. I wanted a fighter. I wanted a winner. I wanted Trump.

Some of my friends liked Sen. Ted Cruz, some liked Governor John Kasich, while some liked others, but they were true politicians. Politicians that shared the same “values” as McCain and Romney. Trump was different. He turned the whole political arena upside down. With one Tweet, he could send the Mainstream Media into a tailspin. In a group of about 12 Alpha men, I was the calm one. That in itself was a surprise to my buddies as well as myself.

Trump was unconventional, a pragmatist. He was never a true GOP favorite. That’s what caught my attention. Prior to Trump running, if one had an “R” before his or her name, I was for them. AT (After Trump), I realized that there was very little differentiating a REP from a DEM. Hell, most have the same donors and lobbyists. How many truly care about the average American? As one of my friends always said “If they (political elite & corporations) would just wet our beeks and give us a little piece of the pie, we wouldn’t be so ticked off”. But, they didn’t. The rich got richer under a Democratic President while us average Joe’s lost our 401K’s and savings. We saw both parties take away our rights and livelihoods. We worked harder with less pay. We had no choice. Most of us have families and we saw our healthcare premiums rise and our doctors leave our insurance networks. What connected each of us is that we were pissed off at the political establishment and corporate elites.

After Trump won’t the GOP primaries, we had one common opponent: Hillary Rodham Clinton. If we couldn’t all get behind Trump for the fight of our lifetime, we wouldn’t ever have another chance to. This was it. We all knew what the Clinton Machine was about. How they played their political games, the media on their side as well as many GOP establishment elites. We now understood what we were in for. We were fighting our own party most of the time. But, we knew what the outcome would be  if we didn’t . It was crystal clear.

Having grown up in Chicago and knowing how the Daley Machine operated…Obama and Clinton took that to a national level. I knew that Trump had to be one of the toughest human beings that God has ever put on this earth. There was no one in that field of 17 that could have survived one quarter of the onslaught from MSM, Clinton and some of our own GOP elites. Hell, there may be no one on this earth that could handle what he went through.

So, now we have President Trump. The people’s President that is getting our jobs back from the elites that brought them oversees. We have an all time high consumer confidence, the stock market is at an all time high…we have someone who is finally fighting back for “US”. We have the respect from other nations back and we have our mojo back.

We’re simple people. We just want to be able to take care of our families, work a job that we like and be left alone without the government hounding us. We want a United States of America where we all get along where we love and respect our neighbors and citizens. We want a strong military. We want these brave men and women, that we send into senseless battles at times, to be taken care of and not have to beg for respect and healthcare. We want our 1st Responders to be able to do their jobs and not feel that the politicians are on the criminals side instead of theirs. We want our children taught History without having a liberal bent to it. We want our children to have a better future than we have, then our parents and grandparents had. We want the USA to lead and not follow. We want our citizens to be proud of their country again.

We want what the past 8 plus years of our political elites and corporate elites have taken away from us. Europe and the other countries will survive without the USA having to pay for being a great nation. Let the other nations build themselves up and use the great USA as their role model instead of wanting to tear us down or bring us down to their level. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, is it?

North Korea rules out negotiations on nuclear weapons

From Reuters

North Korea on Friday ruled out negotiations with Washington as long as joint U.S-South Korea military exercises continue, and said that Pyongyang’s atomic weapons program would remain as a deterrent against a U.S. nuclear threat.

In an interview with Reuters, Han Tae Song, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, brushed off the new sanctions which the Trump administration has said it is preparing, as well as the possibility of North Korea being added to a U.S. list of states sponsoring terrorism.

South Korea and the United States agreed on Friday to keep working for a peaceful end to the North Korean nuclear crisis, but a U.S. envoy said it was difficult to gauge the reclusive North’s intentions as there has been “no signal”.

Han, asked about those bilateral talks in Seoul, replied: “As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the U.S. and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations.”

“There are continued military exercises using nuclear assets as well as aircraft carriers, and strategic bombers and then…raising such kinds of military exercises against my country,” he said.

He, who is ambassador to the U.N.’s Conference on Disarmament, was speaking at the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) mission in Geneva, where the DPRK and the United States secured a 1994 nuclear deal which later fell apart.

“The DPRK, my country, will continue to build-up its self-defense capability, the pivot of which is nuclear forces and capability for a triumphant…strike as long as U.S. and hostile forces keep up nuclear threat and blackmail,” Han said.

“Our country plans ultimate completion of the nuclear force,” he said.

‘NUCLEAR DETERRENT’

China said on Thursday that a “dual suspension” proposal to handle North Korea was still the best option, after U.S. President Donald Trump said he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had rejected a “freeze for freeze” agreement.

Han, asked about China’s latest appeal for a freeze, said “the situation is far from those things”.

Han said that U.S. administrations had “never accepted” halting joint military exercises, adding: “So if they accept such things, then we will think what we do in the future.”

North Korea could not consider abandoning its nuclear program, he said, adding: “This is the deterrent, the nuclear deterrent to cope with the nuclear threat from America.”

Han said that Trump was expected to announce further sanctions against North Korea. Existing sanctions have constituted “large-scale human rights violations” that had delayed delivery of aid and consumer goods, he said.

“It is obvious that the aim of the sanctions is to overthrow the system of my country by isolating and stifling it and to intentionally bring about humanitarian disaster instead of preventing weapons development as claimed by the U.S. and its followers,” he said.

Han, asked whether new U.S. sanctions were expected against North Korean individuals or financial structures, said:

”The media is saying the Americans and Trump are considering such things.

”But that is their business and then we don’t mind what they want to do against my country since the aim is quite clear.

“So we are ready for such kinds of measures taken by America against my country,” he said.

Oops! Russia’s $100K Facebook Ad-Buy was ANTI-Trump

Jacob Wohl

Published

on

Spread the Truth

For the first time, lawmakers have released the Facebook ads purchased by Russian entities. Unsurprisingly, the ads were anti-Trump. Facebooks release of the Russian ads raises questions about the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia aimed to help President Trump get elected.

The ads range from messages supporting Black Lives Matter to ads saying that Trump is “Not My President”.

While some of the ads racked up just a few hundred views, others were seen close to a million times.

Ads targeting Hillary supporting Muslim demographics were among the most provocative.

One ad targeting LGBT voters appeared to support the Campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (D).

Many of the ads supported the Black Lives Matter movement. While some of the Black Live Matter ads were vague, others promoted specific events, referring to them as “Blactivist”.

Bob Corker Tries to Snatch the Nuclear Codes from President Trump

Mike Antebi

Published

Spread the Truth

On Tuesday the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing to discuss the President’s ability to launch a Nuclear Attack with almost no oversight and without approval from Congress. This is the first time in over four decades that the committee has discussed this matter and was spearheaded by Senator Bob Corker, a Republican Senator who has an ongoing feud with the President after being turned down from serving as Secretary of State.

The longstanding precedent of Presidents being able to launch an unrestricted nuclear strike comes from the idea that the US must be able to provide a credible deterrent to other nuclear-armed nations. This precedent dates back to the start of the Cold War, during the Eisenhower Administration.

A Russian or Chinese nuclear ICBM could reach the United States in about 6 minutes. A preemptive strike from Russia or China would likely hit US Missle Silos, leading to an almost immediate loss of capability to retaliate with land-based missiles.

If awaken in the middle of the night, and told that Kim Jong Un has launched a nuclear ICBM towards Los Angeles, President Trump would have just minutes to respond. Installing a bureaucracy around nuclear retaliation would place the United States at an inarguable strategic disadvantage.

The President just finished a successful foreign trip and nothing about his policies or behavior throughout his trip should suggest that his policies are done on a whim, quite the contrary in fact. The entire trip was a success at putting America First while still building major relationships with foreign leaders.

Past administrations have struggled and thought the only way to maintain a good relationship was by giving diplomatic concessions without demanding anything in return. President Trump has shown that leading with strength works. This begs the question: why does Senator Bob Corker, along with his fellow Democrats feel that the President is unhinged and unfit to make a clear decision about launching a nuclear strike?

The only logical answer is that these Senators have contempt for the President, whether it’s because they were not offered top jobs in this administration or because their candidate had a stunning defeat last November. Be that as it may, they are looking to undermine President Trump at every turn, even if it puts our national security at risk.
