Trump’s Presidency Ended When He Signed the Omnibus Bill

Jerry A. Kane 

Instead of holding President Donald J. Trump accountable for signing the UniParty’s Porkulus II spending bill into law, the President’s mau mauing spinmeisters are affixing blame to UniParty weasels Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer for drafting and passing it.

The truth is Trump could’ve vetoed the bill because the House of Representatives didn’t have enough votes to override a presidential  veto. Or he could’ve told Congress to send him a separate appropriations bill for the defense department, which is the normal way of appropriating spending bills for a major department of government.

If Trump had a smidgen of integrity, he would’ve honored his promises and stood with the people who elected him and forced the UniParty weasels in Congress to negotiate a better bill, which would’ve energized and emboldened the members of his party’s base, and they would’ve elevated him to sainthood.

Instead Trump chose to ignore the will of the majority of his party’s base and permanently fracture the Republican Party and banish its  base to a no man’s land without a leader or a compass.

Believe it or not there is a country with a leader who actually does what he was elected to do. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán actually represents the people who elected him. No fooling. Orbán stands toe-to-toe with the European Union’s political weasels and refuses to cave to the pressures of political correctness:

“I can only speak for the Hungarian people, and they don’t want any migration. In my understanding, it’s not possible for the people to have a will on a fundamental issue and for the government not to comply with it.”

The majority of Hungarians oppose opening their borders for people the EU labels as “refugees,” and Prime Minister Orbán has upheld the people’s will and has kept the EU’s refugee designates from being relocated in Hungary.

We remember President Harry Truman for saying “the buck stops here,” i.e., with the President. The UniParty’s Porkulus II became law for one reason and one reason only, Trump signed it. Only the President could sign that bill into law and the buck stops with the President.

Imagine for a moment if Trump would’ve acted like Orbán and stood tall and vetoed the bill; and then with one fell swoop of his arm knocked the two-thousand-plus pages of Porkulus II into the trash can by his desk and onto the trash heap of history.

How “yuge” would that gesture have been in the eyes of his party’s base and of freedom-loving patriots throughout the nation? Such an  act would’ve become the defining moment of his presidency, and he would have gone on to become a legend, like Ronald Reagan, in the minds of conservative Republicans and freedom-loving Americans.

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.” ― Harriet Beecher Stowe

It’s time for Trump supporters to face the truth and stop living in denial. At heart Trump is a Democrat with New York values, and he gave the elitist UniParty what they wanted in their Omnibus bill. He lied to evangelicals, conservatives, and patriots telling them what they wanted to hear. He gave them words, which he refused to back up with actions.

With the way things are shaping up politically in the country, the Democrats will control Congress in November. With the help of the RINOs and the NeverTrump Republicans, the Democrats will impeach Trump, and he’ll be like a drowning man flailing his arms to stay afloat until his term ends in 2020.

If he is the Republican Party’s nominee in 2020, he will lose the election in a landslide, and the American electorate will follow California’s lead and acquiesce to a fascist government and one-party rule run by leftist Democrats.

My fears regarding a Trump presidency have reached fruition. I feared Trump would destroy the Republican Party and in so doing turn over this nation to a Democrat Party that will impose a fascist government and rule in perpetuity.

AMERICA CHOOSES DIRECTION

William E. Been

CURRENT SITUATION

On November 4, 2014, American voters will go to the polls and either choose to pursue a different direction or confirm the policies that have dominated during the Obama Administration. While this is an opportunity for those who believe that our country is going in the wrong direction, the same divisiveness within the right-of-center voters that existed prior to the 2012 disaster is still prevalent.

While books have been written citing the various causes for the 2012 GOP failure, the reality is that there were not enough right-of center voters that understood the need to seek a different direction. Various analyses show that 4-8 million GOP voters stayed home in addition to the Libertarian voters.

Effectively, these citizens chose another four years of Barack Obama and Democrat Party control of Washington. Accentuating this failure was the success the Democrat Party had in Congress where the GOP lost seats in the House and the Senate remained in the control of Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, future demographics and polls of current voters strongly indicate that America is very close to being governed by a permanent Democrat Party majority. It is this belief that is prompting me to write this article with the hope that there are still enough Americans left who understand the dire consequences of the current transformational direction if allowed to continue without meaningful opposition.

My first article addressed how we got to where we are from a political perspective. My second article addressed the need to understand “How” current Obama Administration policies are creating multiple scandals while demeaning our Judeo-Christian heritage. My third article addressed the corruption of the Democrat Party that is leading the Progressive transformation of America.

This article will address what is perhaps the last opportunity to accomplish meaningful restoration of America in accordance with the Constitution and the intent of the Founding Fathers including the belief in a Higher Authority.

POLITICAL KNOWLEDGE

One of the most alarming elements that has become apparent is the lack of understanding of how the legislative branch of our government is constructed and how it is designed to operate. In the current situation, it still appears that a great percentage of the right-of-center voters do not understand the role of the Senate in terms of passing meaningful legislation.

There is a good reason why Barack Obama has never vetoed any of the legislative actions initiated by the House of Representatives. Not one piece of legislation that supports Republican principles has reached the president for a very simple reason–the Majority in the Senate belongs to the Democrats.

President Obama consistently blames congress to the point that he has declared that he is being forced to work around congress because of the obstructionist Republican House. Meanwhile, the Democrat Senate refuses to even debate House approved bills that fail the litmus test of Harry Reid and the Democrat majority.

The media sings in tune with Obama while conservative media personalities provide validation to the Democrat position by constantly and repetitively blaming John Boehner and the Republican House for not getting anything done.

The reality of the current capabilities of the United States congress is that no legislation will be passed, come out of committee, or be debated in the Senate unless it meets the agenda of Barack Obama and the National Progressive Democrat Party. As long as the Democrats have a simple majority in the Senate, the only impact the Republican House can have is to block Democrat legislation and to shut down the government through ill-conceived defunding efforts.

If readers know anyone who believes otherwise, then please educate them. (Also, recall that Boehner and the House gave the Senate a bill defunding Obamacare during the recent budget crisis and the Senate would not even allow it to come out of committee for debate, let alone a floor vote.)

RIGHT OF CENTER UNITY OR LACK THEREOF

Very simply, if the Republicans do not take the Senate and maintain the House, it will be strictly because the right-of-center voters did not go to the polls.

While a large contingent of right-of-center voters continue to play “the Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats” game, some of us are appalled that we are not united in an attempt to elect Republicans in the upcoming elections to create a super majority in the Senate.

With a super majority in the Senate, the Republicans could pass any legislation without a single Democrat vote thereby forcing Barack Obama either to veto bills or throw the Constitution totally in the scrap heap while dictating through regulations and Executive Orders.

It is time to stop the RINO hunting and work to take back our country because the clock is ticking in the final minutes of the final hour in this writer’s opinion.

It will probably again be the case when we wake up after the next election that it will be evident that many right-of-center voters stayed home. Never have we had such corrupted national leadership as that residing in the Executive Branch under Barack Obama and we still refuse to unite behind the only political force that has even a remote chance of stopping and then repealing the damage done by the Progressive Democrats.

In many of my presentations given since the election of Barack Obama, the plea has been to unite behind the GOP candidates to stop the Progressive Democrat destruction of our country, its traditions, and its heritage. That this plea has fallen on deaf ears is clearly substantiated by calls for a 3rd Party, calls to support Libertarians, failure of 10-15% of Christians to even register to vote, and the constant negativism directed toward the GOP.

Another of the most aggravating and potentially damaging factors to achieving unity of purpose is the behavior of conservative opinion leaders who constantly chastise the GOP for not standing for anything.

While typing this paragraph, an email was received from the NRSC that expressed the GOP candidate’s objectives in five debates held recently—Replace Obamacare, Balance the Federal Budget, Secure Our Borders, Repeal Anti-Business Regulations, Energy Independence, and Fix Tax Code.

In addition, referencing the GOP Platform prepared in 2012, the objectives are stated clearly including Jobs Creation, Economic Growth, Business Tax Policy, Oppose Common Core, Oppose Agenda 21, and 62 pages more that encompass the scope of meaningful government.

It is time to put the many litmus tests being used to criticize and even destroy potential candidacies and unite behind the clearly stated principles and objectives that are extensively documented by the Republican Party. Failure to do so will only assure the final steps required to complete the Progressive Transformation of America.

We have awakened to the magnitude of the problem that we face, now let us awaken to recognize that the only pathway to stop and then reverse the Progressive Movement runs through the Republican Party.
