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.

The lines have been drawn in the Republican Party between the establishment RINOs and neocons and the grass roots who uphold the Founders’ vision and the Constitution and believe in the Bill of Rights, particularly. This nation was founded by believers in Christianity, not Muslims, and certainly not Mormons.

In 2010, grass-root Republicans had a chance to get rid of John “Songbird” McCain but Dick Armey and Freedom Works convinced the four major tea parties in Arizona to withhold their endorsements in the Arizona U.S. Senate race. Armey has a libertarian bent and a PhD in economics, yet he supported McCain on fiscal grounds, which strains credulity.

Even though the Arizona Tea Party movement was formed to combat big government and the politicians who trample the constitutional principles of limited government, the four Tea Party groups chose to ignore McCain’s TARP supporting, amnesty pushing, free speech denying, global warming pushing and sit out the primary election, which in effect was backhanded support for McCain’s reelection bid.

Make no mistake, McCain was tea party enemy number one, yet the four major Arizona Tea Parties did nothing to stop the author of the anti free speech McCain-Feingold bill, the global warming McCain-Lieberman bill, and the amnesty for illegal aliens McCain-Kennedy bill.

Then in the 2012 midterm election, the candidacy of a Missouri Republican vying for a seat in the US Senate was derailed by Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin.

Palin and Malkin castigated Todd Akin for his remarks on abortion in the case of rape. In referencing the probability of a woman becoming pregnant as a result of rape, Akin said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Malkin called Akin’s remarks “really, really stupid, ignorant, and garbled nonsense,” while Palin called for a third party challenger in the Missouri senate race. Perhaps Akin shouldn’t have said “legitimate rape,” but he was distinguishing between an actual rape claim verses a bogus rape claim. FBI and DOJ reports show that about one forth of rape allegations are fabricated.

Also, Akin’s claim that women have some defense mechanisms against pregnancy in cases of rape is not without merit. According to some pro-life physicians, the fertilization process is highly dependent on hormonal signals, and stress can disrupt the hormonal milieu and cause miscarriages. And what is more stressful than a forcible rape?

Akin wasn’t making a demeaning comment about “legitimate rape.” He didn’t say that pregnancy can’t result from forcible rape. What he tried to say but didn’t say very well was that “the chance of a pregnancy occurring is quite low.”

That said, a child conceived during a forcible rape doesn’t have less dignity than one conceived during consensual intercourse. The full dignity and sanctity of an unborn child remains regardless of the circumstance of conception.

The opportunity to take the Senate ended with the banshees’ barrage in Missouri. My point is Democrats don’t devour their own in the national media or in public. When a Democrat politician says something racist or stupid, Democrats circle the wagons, go on offense, and accuse the accuser.

The truth is I’m really conflicted when it comes to Sarah Palin. I’m beginning to dislike her almost as much as I like her.

The bottom line is you can’t be stupid or emotional when fighting spiritually wicked Democrats, and unfortunately far too many conservative women engaged in the fight are both.

Tell Levin and Hannity to Back anti-Establishment Senate Candidates

By Jerry A. Kane

If Mark Levin and Sean Hannity weren’t establishment tools, they’d be working tirelessly to promote the anti-establishment senate candidates in the upcoming GOP primaries, but they’re not.

Look, I’m not talking about a casual mention of a particular senate race here and there, or an occasional rant against one of the establishment’s candidates. I’m talking about interviewing these largely unknown candidates and dropping their names with increased frequency as each primary approaches. Name recognition is paramount for these unknown candidates to have a fighting chance against the better-known establishment incumbents and their well-financed campaigns.

If Levin and Hannity had an ounce of integrity and the courage of their professed convictions, they would be repentant for their wholehearted endorsement of Orin Hatch, a card-carrying member of the permanent political class and more RINO (Republican in name only) than Bob Bennett, who lost Utah’s 2010 primary to Mike Lee.

To jog your memory, Hatch was headed for defeat in 2012, but Mark Levin and Sean Hannity intervened to save his bacon. They endorsed Hatch, interviewed and promoted him on their shows as a stalwart conservative; then they relentlessly attacked Dan Liljenquist, Hatch’s challenger, who in truth was an actual conservative tough on fiscal issues, illegal immigration, and the GOP establishment.

Levin was the more ruthless of the two. He mercilessly attacked Liljenquist backer Freedom Works and its head Dick Armey for prompting a radical, open-borders, pro-amnesty position, and viciously smeared Liljenquist even though Hatch had been a supporter of amnesty and had sponsored the open-borders DREAM Act.

Levin endorsed Hatch without reservation knowing Hatch had been in DC since 1976; had promoted SCHIP (Obamacare for Children), TARP, the Law of the Sea Treaty, and Medicare Part D; and had voted to confirm leftists Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, and Cass Sunstein.

“I endorsed Orrin Hatch a year ago and will continue to do so,” proclaimed Levin on Facebook.

Hatch’s voting record called into question whether he would uphold the Constitution and defend liberty and freedom, but Levin was undeterred. He doubled down his support for the big-spending, Beltway-entrenched incumbents’ mascot who routinely crossed the aisle to promote and pass the Democrats’ destructive agenda.

Hatch reflected the antithesis of the spirit behind the Tea Party movement. Following his vote in support of Eric Holder as Attorney General, he said, “I like Barack Obama and I want to help him if I can.” Hatch was actually part of the overall problem. He epitomized everything Levin said he opposed on his radio talk show; yet, Levin gave Hatch his unwavering support.

Levin has a reputation for being a constitutional scholar and a solid Reagan conservative and his endorsement of the six-term senator with a big-government voting record and nearly four decades of costly progressive partnerships carried a lot of clout with the tea party faithful and the conservative grassroots. His endorsement helped Hatch gain credibility and trust among Utah Republicans in one of the nation’s reddest states.

Hatch, of course, went on to win the primary and was reelected. About eight months later during his radio talk show, Mark Levin read the names of the 14 GOP Senators who voted for amnesty; and of course, sticking out like a sore thumb was the name Orin Hatch. Levin made a half-hearted attempt at an apology for backing Hatch, saying, “I could never endorse him again.” The horse is gone, so what’s the point in locking the gate now, Mark?

Primaries are where the fight for the soul of the GOP take place. Primaries are where the GOP’s RINO establishment should be ousted. Primaries are where the grass roots lets the party know that they’re mad as hell and not gonna to take it anymore.

Unfortunately Mark Levin’s and Sean Hannity’s endorsements wield enormous credibility among the tea party faithful and conservative Republicans, but too often they put their shows’ ratings and personal interests ahead of their professed beliefs. The truth is what they say and do adheres more to management, advertising, and FCC guidelines than it does to principles of liberty and freedom. That’s the true nature of the beast, and it’s naive to think otherwise.

Looking to talk radio for heroes and champions is like looking for love in all the wrong places. People who do it are setting themselves up for a major letdown.

But don’t take my word for it; use the available social media and ask the dynamic duo if they’ll go all out to help these anti-establishment senate candidates get the name recognition and raise the money to rid the GOP of its RINOs.

Those with the convictions to take me up on my challenge should prepare for disappointment when the bloom falls off the rose.

On Friday’s Wilkow Majority radio show, Andrew Wilkow took off the gloves and unloaded on the Democrats and the Chris-Christie Republicans who are willing to work with them to further the leftist agenda.

This is the speech Wilkow said he would deliver had he been invited to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC, this past week.

Wilkow is right; the lines have been drawn. This primary season should be about turning each primary into a referendum on the Democrats and their fellow travelers in the GOP pushing the leftist agenda.

Any Republican willing to work with the Democrats needs to go.

This is revolution. Playing nice with the left is no longer acceptable. It’s time to rid the Republican Party of Congressman who won’t proclaim the principles of the US Constitution and fight the Democrats’ leftist agenda.
