Let's talk Trump
Gary Meinert

To the Liberals President Trump is an enigma. They've never seen anyone like him and he's moving so fast they're bumping into each other trying to explain why we should all loathe him. Their whimpers and tantrums on election eve have turned to shrieks of terror as their visions of reality begin to slowly sink in. He's our President regardless of what your little signs say!

Liberals have become accustomed to "politicians" who have never done anything other than be "politicians," and it disrupts their senses. During the campaign we saw Trump as a GOP candidate respond to questions occasionally with a relatively liberal view which caused conservatives some trepidation, but not panic. He's so focused on what has to be done he's not harnessed to methods or ideologies which have failed time and time over the years. Trump is a businessman uninterested in political philosophy who became tired of watching the cesspool of Washington politics destroy our country, and decided he had to do something about it. To the unfamiliar, that's what businessmen do!

He dearly loves the business he built but generously backed away from it to serve his country. True to his word he used his own money to campaign as not to be beholding to outside interests or party politics. He refused his presidential annual salary of $400,000 accepting only one dollar as required. His goals are simply what he unabashedly promised on his campaign. To him, nothing else matters! He's comfortable and experienced making "deals" which require his strength of resolve and experience. But there are those who are unable to grasp the simple concept of what appears to them to be intimidation but is merely strong confidence. If you haven't noticed that in his first three weeks you're not paying attention.

The leftists can't debate President Trump or drag him into their cesspool, so attack and delay is their only choice. So what does one do with a president who doesn't drink, smoke, use drugs, consort with women and has an intelligent, handsome, successful family? Chuck Schumer, the sultan of sleaze, steps in with his loyal media.

Schumer's first volley came as a rebuttal to the Republican Senate's refusal to vote on Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland. To the Democrats it was an injustice perpetrated on the noble. For the Republicans it was a strategically defensive move which would have only been successful if Trump won, but of course that was a silly notion.

With hatred bubbling like Mt. Vesuvius, Schumer echoed his faithful that the Trump administration was smothered in a "mess," in "turmoil," and thrown into "chaos." With unhidden glee he trumpeted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's resignation as a catastrophic failure of President Trump's "vetting process." He assumed that citizens had forgotten the mayhem of President Obama's vetting skills.

He overlooked Obama's pick for National Intelligence Council Chairman, Charles Freeman, who had more baggage than O'Hare Airport's claim department. He withdrew the nomination.

Again he overlooked former Democrat New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's failed nomination as Commerce Secretary due to his long record of corruption and incompetence which earned him the title of "Dollar Bill."

Once again he overlooked Richardson's replacement, former GOP Sen. Judd Gregg's withdrawal due to one of Obama's farcical stimulus proposals.

And again his memory failed regarding former Democrat South Dakota Sen. Tom Daschle who was drop-kicked out of the park as Health and Human Services secretary over multiple ethical scandals and tax evasions.

Continuing his forgetfulness, he overlooked Secretary Geithner's confession of "tax problems" which included failure to pay $43,000 to the Feds. At the end of Obama's first 100 days five other Treasury picks withdrew because of a plethora of tax problems.

Even with an overwhelming Senate majority at his disposal, Obama had filled less than half of the positions needed. It appeared that Schumer's sage advice wasn't helpful to Obama with his vetting practices but is still severely critical of President Trump's.

The President's order to block immigrants from countries for which we lacked ability to properly vet was overturned by the 9th "Circus" Court of Appeals. This order was for no other reason than to protect our citizens as Obama had done previously. However, Schumer jumped on that like a duck on a June bug instead of supporting the President on a vital security manner. The depth to which Schumer will stoop apparently is fathoms below.

An off colored audio tape of locker room bantering labeled Trump a misogynist. His often offensive "off the cuff," comments regarding Hispanics branded him as a racist. Of course these are ridiculous and unnecessary remarks; however they were not examples of his base principles. Those who know him, including Schumer, understand Trump's business empire is replete with talented women of all races including Hispanics and African Americans. By all accounts they admire and respect President Trump.

We must ponder an important concern. Is the loss of an election a cause for liberals rioting, burning and attacking law enforcers? Unquestionably Obama was the worst president in memory, but Conservatives never rioted in disgust for the man. However, in a great measure the election results were in response to President Obama's lawlessness.

It's time for Senator Schumer to put on his big boy pants, act like a Senator and work together to put this once great nation back to its rightful place in the world.
