I’m Not Going Say Those Words:
I won’t write the words I want to use, because my wife and journalistic decency won’t allow it. It’s one thing if you disagree with President Trump on his press conference with President Putin, even Republicans are criticizing him for that, but they are doing it in a mature and professional manner.
Those on the left? You have got to be freaking kidding me. The words they used to rip on Trump were absolutely mind boggling. How can a person with at least an ounce of common sense and intelligence say these things, and expect to be taken seriously?
“We were burglarized this time by foreign agents and it’s just as serious to me as the Cuban Missile Crisis, in terms of an attack, or the 9/11 attack.”
“His performance today will live in infamy as much as the Pearl Harbor attack or Kristallnacht.”
“Trump’s remarks were nothing short of treason.”
Treason! Treason, you say? That is total putrid garbage. Treason against the United States consists of levying war against our country or adhering to our enemies, giving them aid or comfort. The offence is punishable by death. If these Einsteins had their way, they would want Trump punished by death.
These remarks, as well as the remarks I wrote about last week as a result of the nomination for The Supreme Court Justice are such loads of crap. It makes one wonder about the IQ level of these people. Either that, or they are so blinded by ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ they go temporarily insane.
He Screwed Up:
Okay, I get it, Trump screwed up with some of his words during the news conference with the former KGB agent (Putin), but is it the end of the world as we know it? The day after, he owned up to his mistake and made clear what he meant to say. With all the fallout from his misuse of words, you would think America is going to fold into an utter chaotic mess at the hands of Putin and the Russians.
Folks need to chill the heck out. The latest Trump gut-wrenching will pass over like climate changing cow flatulence blowing across the plains of America. Just last week, there was hysteria in the streets over the Supreme Court’s future killing of women and the repulsive Republicans giving poor Peter Strozk such a hard time during the Congressional hearing. Now, those heart-pounding issues are but a distant memory, making one wonder what’s next. But, one thing is for sure, there will be a next.
I Don’t Know How He Does It:
Believe it or not, I get asked from time to time why I don’t run for City Council. Ain’t no way that’s happening. First of all, I wouldn’t stand a chance in Hades of winning, and second of all, I would be the first council person in Santa Clarita history to tell someone from my seat on the dais to kiss my @#% and go to @#%&!
That being said, I don’t know how President Trump refrains from telling some of the idiots to @#$% off and die, because I know that I, and many others, would. With all of the negative stuff that is thrown his way from both sides of the aisle, we don’t hear much praise of the good things he has accomplished, and that’s what would drive me bat-crap-crazy, and I bet it would for you, too.
I would be saying, “Hey, have you nimrods noticed the economy thriving from tax cuts and deregulation? Does that matter a hill of fake news to you? What about the Supreme Court Justices? How about me getting us out of that crazy Climate Change Accord with those tree-huggers in Paris?”
“If I’m such a terrible statesman, what about the billions of dollars I got from those NATO free-loaders? While I may have messed up during the press conference with Putin, what about me enforcing the red line Obama was too chicken to do in Syria?”
“Have you people happened to have noticed that we’re on our way to energy independence with the lifting of restrictions on oil exploration? If the left had their way, we would be on the road to 100 percent reliance on other countries.”
“Come on, give me a break!”
How Will It Fly From the Fan, Then?
In this day and age of whirlwind negative Trump news, I find it interesting that the sound of crickets is all we hear when it comes to the fake collusion mess. That can of worms has only just begun to open, and when it is clear the whole collusion investigation was instigated based on fraudulent evidence bought and paid for by the Democrats, which way will the crap fly from the fan then?
Quips, Quotes & Headlines:
“If a fetus is not a human until life is born, why do abortion-supporting women follow their doctor’s orders to refrain from smoking, drinking, and taking drugs during pregnancy, so as to not harm the baby.” (Terry Lovell, president of Santa Clarita Republican Women Federated, from her column in The Signal on 7/14)
*Lovell’s piece was very good, she made some excellent points. I highly recommend you read it, if you haven’t already. (Me)
“We must not be surprised when we hear of murders; of killings, of war, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?” (Mother Teresa)
*This quote from Mother Teresa was included in Terry Lovell’s column. (Me)
“And just like that, they went from freaking out about babies being separated to freaking out about The Supreme Court taking away their right to kill babies.” (Meme)
*Go figure on that one. (Me)
“As I flip from Fox to CNN I might as well be watching two entirely different newscasts. It isn’t just the slant and opinions, it’s what each network is leaving out to support their own agenda. The mainstream media bashing of our President, from NPR, to MSNBC and CNN has brought a new low to journalism.
It’s important for our local media to rise above the national media nonsense. KHTS applauds the changes at the Signal newspaper. We believe under the new leadership of Richard and Chris Budman the paper will shift to one of friendly competitors, with both media entities working toward the benefit of our valley instead of trying to destroy it. (Carl Goldman, Co-Owner KHTS Radio)
*This is a portion of an excellent piece written by Carl. Check it out on the KHTS website. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the Gazette not being included in his local media reference. (Me)
“Peter Strzok loves the FBI, and his wife, and his mistress and he f***ed them all.” (James Wood, Actor)
“There’s a large group of people who blindly follow what this man (Trump) says, that don’t think for themselves, that is a cult.” (Tara Setmayer, while guest hosting on ‘The View’)
“I have made the conscious choice, and I have more reason than anyone in here to dislike President Trump. I’m sorry but I’ve made the conscious choice to try and understand his voters, I think when we sit here, in studios in Manhattan judging the middle of the country we make no waves whatsoever.” (Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter and a regular on ‘The View’)
*She does have good reasons not to like Trump for the things he said about her Dad, and yet she is clear-minded enough to recognize the validity of his presidency. I wish others could take the emotions out of their thinking when judging The President like Ms. McCain has. (Me)
Letters to the Ranter:
Some random thoughts about what is going on in this crazy world. A despondent Phillip Germain should take the time to read the U.S. Constitution. NIFLA v. Becerra is not about abortion. It is about the First Amendment i.e. free speech. Does he really think that women are so uninformed as to not know where to go to get an abortion? Apparently so because he believes that they need the state of California forcing NIFLA to inform them.
It’s been about two months now and Blair Bess has not accused Trump in particular and Republicans in general of being racists. Someone had better check to make sure it is really Blair writing under his byline.
Why isn’t Alan Ferdman on the Santa Clarita City Council? He seems to be the only person who knows the law and has a clue as to what is going on.
I would encourage Democrats/leftists (but I repeat myself) like “Mad Max”(ine) Waters, Michael Moore etc. to keep hounding and flash mobbing Trump staffers and Republican Senators and Congressmen. It pretty much assures me that Republicans will retain and gain seats in the Senate but will also maintain a majority in the House too.
And finally: Doug keep on holding Gary Horton to account. I get a kick out of his articles telling us how we need to do more for the homeless and downtrodden while he and his wife a cruisin’ down the 126 in their ‘Vetter to Oxnard to spend a day on their yacht.
What a great week or so for our great President. His trip to NATO has to be a clear victory for the U S A as other countries finally step up to pay their fair share. His meeting with Putin was tremendous, another giant step in the right direction. (I love those on the left that say “He shouldn’t meet with that guy”. Do they think that by ignoring him he will go away?) I am beginning to wonder more and more why so much of the media remains anti Trump. Surely they see the immense progress being made by this country since he has been in office and still they take cheap shots at him. Have they looked at their 401K’s lately? The country is doing great.
I do not wonder so much about congress, right and left. I will not be surprised if probably in his second term he tries to unify the retirement programs in the country. So that when congress decides to give away our Social Security their money will be in the game too. Seems fair to me. He will need the media on his side to maybe get that done.
I haven’t heard much about DACA lately, I wonder how many of the kids deemed illegal because they were brought in to the country at a young age by their parents took steps to become citizens through legal channels.
How about the people that have been waiting patiently and legally in line to gain admission in to our country? I wonder what they think as the flood of illegals continues. Dan
