Donald J Trump – Creator of Fake News, Destroyer of Democracy

As vocal as Donald Trump has been about the existence of “fake news,” he always seems to be the source of it.  Again, I call on Trump supporters to stop being closed minded and stop hanging onto every word Rush Limbaugh says, and genuinely look for the truth.

Trump has been great at rallying crowds of hardcore Republicans with false claims about the media being out to get him, but it’s all nonsense and it needs to stop.

Recent claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Towers have not only been proven to be false, but even GOP leaders have stepped up and admitted that they have ZERO evidence to support these claims.

In an age where politics tend to override common sense, common decency, and accountability, it’s refreshing to see some GOP leaders put party aside and admit that the President’s claims are nonsense.

For that I applaud them.

America deserves better than a President that feels the need to create fake stories to divert attention from his scandal of the week.  We need to restore integrity and honor to the White House or risk losing the respect of the world, and that can only be done if Republicans and Democrats work together to put an end to fabricated news coming from Washington.

Trump has time and time again thrown out unsubstantiated claims as a smoke screen to the truth.  It’s like clock work.  As soon as the heat starts building on him, a new and wild allegation comes out.  It’s juvenile and beneath the office of the President of the United States of America.

It’s time that America unites and holds him accountable for his actions, his words and his nonsensical fake news.

Trumpocrisy Strikes Again

 

As inept and unstable POTUS Donald Trump was giving a speech about Making America Great Again by buying American and Hiring American, and claiming that it’s not just a motto – it’s a pledge, news spread that his daughter currently has approximately 53 tons of Chinese products in shipping containers on their way to the United States.

So my question to Disastrous Donald…Is Ivanka going to send back the 53 tons of Chinese shoes and clothing and pay a fair price to make them in the United States?

We all know the answer and we once again see proof that Donald Trump is in this for the Trump Organization, not the American people.

On the “Hire American” front, you may remember that Trump claims that he has to hire immigrant workers at his Florida golf club because “getting help in Palm Beach during the season is almost impossible.”

Records show that since 2010, approximately 300 U.S. residents have applied for waitstaff and housekeeping jobs at Mar-a-Lago, but only 17 have been hired.

Trump supporters need to open their eyes and open their minds just a little and start facing the truth. Donald Trump’s hypocritical actions speak louder than the words written for him on the teleprompters.

War in Iran is “not a game!”

After four years of bashing the President about government spending as he tries to bail the nation out from the mess that Republican President George W. Bush got us into, Republican candidates are now bashing him for not jumping into a war with Iran.

President Obama continues to maintain peace the best he can through diplomacy and strict sanctions, but GOP candidates apparently believe that America should drop bombs first and ask questions last.  Did any of these candidates witness the Bush administration’s years in the White House?

In an address to a pro-Israel group meeting in Washington, Mitt Romney declared that, “as president, I will be ready to engage in diplomacy, but I will be just as ready to engage our military might.”

Is he implying that the President isn’t willing to engage in military action when necessary?  Did he forget who got Osama Bin Laden after a Republican President chased him for eight years?

This attitude that America is the super power that should flex its “military might” anytime anyone in the world does anything against our policies is the attitude that makes America the most hated nation in the world.

President Obama has flexed enough power already with the implementation of some of the strictest sanctions ever and at this point there is no reason to jump into a war that will further cripple our economy.

It is also funny that all of the GOP candidates are blaming the Obama Administration for gas prices to try to win votes of people who aren’t smart enough to understand that the accusations are ridiculous yet every one of them is ready to start bombing Iran immediately, which would send gas prices easily into the $5.00 range.

Only Ron Paul, who I normally disagree with, is intelligent enough to understand that Iran is not an immediate threat and that diplomacy, not the immediate use or threat of force is needed.

If diplomacy fails, then let’s put the military into action.  But at this point it would not be wise to go in with guns blazing.  The President’s response was exactly right when he said that “war in Iran is not a game.”

President Obama went on to say “When I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war, I’m reminded of the costs involved in war; I’m reminded of the decision that I have to make, in terms of sending our young men and women into battle, and the impacts that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy.”

Let’s not forget that even though we’re in an election year and it’s easy to get caught up in a campaign and winning, we still have a nation to run and we must continue to do what is in the best interest of our nation and put the politics aside.

I think it’s important for everyone in America to understand that the two-party system is supposed to be there for checks and balances, not to create two Americas. 

Let’s start working together instead of fighting each other based solely on party affiliations.  God Bless the USA
