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.

Fox News, the satellite television news channel, has relinquished every pretense of “fair and balanced” reporting to purposely destroy Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The cable “news” giant now bashes Trump or features Trump haters 24/7.

Last night on Fox Faux News’ Kelly File, Rich Lowry, editor of the conservative neoconservative National Review Peeyew magazine, told host Megyn “Me-Womyn” Kelly “that last debate … Carly [Fiorina] cut his [Donald Trump] balls off with the precision of a surgeon and he knows it.”

Lowry has never, nor would he ever, make such a crude comment or use such vulgar language on a talking-head news show to describe what happened to Hussein I (peace be upon him), Hillary Clinton, or any Democrat during a nationally-televised primary debate.

Lowry’s contemptible remarks regarding Trump are far more damaging to the Republican Party and its conservative wing than are the combined attacks from the left-leaning pundits at CNN, MSNBC, and the alphabet networks.

Unlike low-life Lowry, the networks’ left-leaning pundits will never brutally attack a Democrat presidential candidate with significant base support. And on those rare occasions when they do criticize a Democrat presidential candidate, they are careful not to offend and alienate the base constituents who support that candidate.

Lowry’s impudence and girly-man male qualities make testosterone-challenged dweebs the likes of Byron York and George Will look masculine by comparison.

Byron York Dork George Georgy-Boy Will

If NR Publisher‎, ‎Jack Fowler, had Trump’s balls, which are allegedly missing due to Fiorina’s surgical skills, he would fire the rumpswab Lowry so fast that his pointy little head would spin.

Incidentally, Chris Salcedo, political pundit from the Blaze Blasé Radio Network, joined Lowry as Kelly’s other “Trump-bashing” guest. His school-girl giggling at Lowry’s remarks brought to mind Anderson Vanderbilt-Cooper’s hysterics on CNN.

Fox News Lurches Left as Murdoch’s Sons Take Control of Media Dynasty

By Jerry A. Kane

Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected.

For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A 21st Century Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter from now on, “Roger will report to Lachlan and James.”

“For Ailes, it was a stinging smack-down and effectively a demotion.”

To say that Ailes and Murdoch’s son James have a strained relationship would be a bit of an understatement. James, whose wife once worked for the Clinton Foundation, is a rabid environmentalist who led the campaign to make News Corp a carbon-neutral company. Conversely, Ailes is a “fierce climate-change denier,” who allegedly has called James a “fucking dope” and “Fredo.”

Ailes was not notified of the management change in advance. Apparently, Murdoch has been convinced that Fox News will continue do well without Ailes at the helm. Last year Ailes took a leave of absence due to an illness, and the network’s ratings didn’t slide.

Now that control of Fox News has been given to Murdoch’s sons Ailes’ fair and balanced reporting and conservative punditry will soon fall by the wayside.

“I think the boys are back … yoked together in a sort of competitive collaboration,” said David Folkenflik, author of Murdoch’s World: The Last of the Old Media Empires.

Last month at the behest of Ailes, Fox News gave Trump more airtime than any other candidate, and analysts and hosts made pro-Trump arguments and gushed over him. But then the network jumped the shark at the Republican Party’s first presidential primary debate in Cleveland, Ohio, last Thursday.

Murdoch’s message to blunt Trump’s rise in the polls came loud and clear over his social media and publishing outlets, and the Fox News debate moderators tried to destroy his candidacy in a single night by unleashing an all-out character assassination to discredit him.

“This wasn’t a debate, at least not like most of those I’ve seen. This was an inquisition.”—Frank Bruni, journalist, New York Times

Throughout the night, Fox News moderators, Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, and Megyn Kelly, deluged Trump with cheap shots and sophomoric “gotcha” questions, while pitting the candidates and the audience against him.

It was an obvious planned hit to destroy Trump’s candidacy, a failed bread and circus show that left viewers with nothing substantive but a foul taste in their mouths. Cyberspace erupted with “disappointing, disgusting, embarrassing, appalling, shocking, and shameful.”

In spite of the moderators’ collective efforts to take care of “This Trump Thing,” Trump managed to survive their inquisition, but the network that Ailes had built over the past 15 years did not. Fox News died a humiliating death at Quicken Loans Arena August 6, 2015, in front of 24 million viewers. In display of solidarity with its leftist alphabet and cable network counterparts, the network relinquished any pretense of credibility.

The weight of this sad time we must obey,

Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.

The oldest hath borne most: we that are young

Shall never see so much, nor live so long.”

― William Shakespeare, King Lear

The Viewer’s View is hosted by two black ladies who just happen to be enthusiastic supporters of the Donald. In the video below, the ladies take on Megyn Kelly of Fox News for “trying to destroy our future president Mr. Donald Trump, and vow they “won’t let that happen.”

Trump’s poll numbers didn’t nose dive, and he didn’t crash and burn after Thursday night’s debate as predicted by Fox News punditry. And what’s more, he still seems to be resonating with “the folks” out there.

Think about it. Two black women come to the defense of a white republican who was accused by a popular female journalist and news pundit of displaying a history of anti-woman behavior.

The faux conservatives at Fox News and the Republican establishment must be downing a few extra boilermakers due to the amount of backlash they’ve received from their failure to destroy Trump.

He’s still upright, while they are spinning like mad and preparing for some serious damage control.

Give the video below a tumble; these two ladies are a hoot. You go girls.

Republican political consultant Karl Rove, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz have decided not to take Barack Obama’s executive action on amnesty lying down.

Christie did not mince words in condemning Obama’s lawless action, while Rove hailed the GOP response as complete and adequate.
