The continued harassment of President Donald Trump

The treatment of this President by the Democrat Party, the media and Washington insiders  is unlike anything that we have ever witnessed in the history of this country. The daily  attempts to sabotage the Presidency of Donald Trump is just stunning to behold. What is even more unbelievable is to see the media go along with these acts of sabotage all in the effort to take down a President they do not like. 

It is not unusual to oppose the party in power. That is standard operating procedure, but the hate towards this man, the personal attacks against him and his family, the non ending attempts to bring down his Presidency based on nothing but innuendo and wishful thinking is way outside the bounds of normal political gamesmanship. 

This is sick, this is evil! 

To watch the news media and their Democrat allies revel in the attempts to personally destroy Trump makes one wonder if these people even have souls. How is it possible to hate someone so much that these people are willing to say and do the things that they have engaged in for the last three years? 

These people actually started talk of impeachment before Trump even took took the oath of office. Since then they have called on members of the electoral college to not certify the election. They have baselessly called for Trump’s cabinet to invoke the 25th amendment, and they have called for their supporters to harass members of Trump’s cabinet when these cabinet members are in public spaces. 

Celebrities and other prominent people joke about the prospect of violent acts being committed against the President, and they call the President the most vulgar names imaginable. All the while no one in the media makes the familiar “call for civility” that they often make if a Republican or conservative steps out of line. Every day there is a constant barrage of nothing but nasty, hostile coverage against the President without ever giving him credit for any of the things he has accomplished. 

One Congresswoman on the night she was elected shouted to her enthusiastic crowd of  supporters that “we’re gonna impeach the muther f*****,” but not even that comment was enough to cause the charlatan media alarm. And so it has gone since this guy has been elected.

 Again, it is normal for the party in power to face opposition, but this is just crazy. When Obama was elected the Republicans infamously said that they will do everyting in their power to make Obama a one term President. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that statement based on their stark policy differences. It is the job of the party in the opposition to highlight the differences between the two parties, and try to regain power based on the idea that their policies are better. That is the nature of politics. 

What we are seeing with Trump though is Democrats and the media trying to undermine the President at every turn, using the most underhanded tricks in their attempt to stage a soft coup. 

The President has been under investigation since he first came into office. Not one of these investigations is based on evidence of wrongdoing by by him, but simply in the effort to find dirt on him.  When have we seen a President treated this way before? 

The media and the Democrats hated President Ronald Reagan with a fiery passion, but not even Reagan experiesced this.

Now the latest act of sabotage is that some low level employee listening in on the President’s decided to snitch on the President’s conversation with another world leader, because that low level employee thinks he heard something fishy. Is this really what we have come to as a country? Think about this for one moment and let it sink in to the consciousness. A low level employee is second guessing the President’s discussion with another world leader because that low level employee thinks that the President is saying something inappropriate. 

Imagine during the Cuban Missile Crisis that some low level employee who has no idea of  what is going on behind the scenes, who has no idea of the back and forth negotions, the feeling out of each other that the two leaders are doing, or any of the intricate detalils that the President and his team knows. Imagine that low level employee listening in on a conversation between Kennedy and Kruschev and deciding that Kennedy is out of line in his negotions, and then goes snitching to Congress that he believes Kennedy has stepped out of line. 

Does anyone understand how ridiculous that would be. Folks the bar for anyone who is privy to the President’s conversations with wolrld leaders, discussing what he or she may have heard in those discussions with anyone must be very high. 

The President of the United States must be allowed a lot of leverage to discuss issues with world leaders without worrying that his conversations would be leaked. Are we saying that world leaders now have to worry about the conversations they have with the President of the United States being leaked, because as one person says, the very act of being President is now impeachable?

It does not matter who the President is. What we are witnessing at the moment with the so called whistle blower and members of the Democrat Party is just wrong, and the fact that people are willing to go along with this simply because they hate the man in the White House is so very troubling. 

This nonesense has to stop!

Mass shootings!

Three mass killings over the course of a week! There is no way to make sense of this kind of violence and reconcile it with a civil society. What possible answers can there be to this kind of carnage taking place in our society?  It is natural to ask questions and seek answers to what triggers this kind of violence, and what society’s response should be, but people have to be careful about using these incidents to push political agendas. 

First of all, it is important to state unequivocally, any ideology that drives people to gun down their fellow citzens is evil. That goes without saying. The families of victims find themselves overcome by unconsolable grief and they ask the eternal question why. 

What do you say to someone who lost a father, a brother, a son, a daughter, a grandmother or a sister under such horrendous circumstances? 

The thought that a person would never see his or her loved one on this earth ever again is heart rending in itself, but add to that the absolute horror of knowing how that loved on died, and it is is so much harder to bear. It is impossible to imagine the pain that people go through under these circumstances. 

This following is not meant to minimize people’s pain and anger, only to state what is a hard ugly truth, and that is that evil exists in this sinful world. 

As human beings, as Americans we must be there for our fellow citizens in times like these and  despite what the mockers of prayer may say, offer a prayer on their behalf and let them know that you support them. Be a shoulder to cry on, be there just to listen, to just be present without saying anything, or to offer a comforting word when needed. In addition to all of this, as a nation; we must also look for ways to try and stop these incidets from recurring. 

In the search for answers leaders and citizens must keep in mind that external applications are not the only remedies to solving these deeply rooted societal problems. Sure, new laws may be neccessary as part of an overall approach to tackling these issues, but people bent on committing evil acts do not worry too much about breaking the law. By definition, these people are law breakers. If Americans were forced to turn in all of their guns, people would still find ways to commit murder, because the heart of the issue is not the tool that people use to kill. It is the individual!

Despite what you may hear in the media, these incidents are not happening more frequently today than they did in the last fifty years, neither are mass shootings unique to the United States. In fact America is not even in the top 10 among nations when it comes to mass shootings. 

That may be difficult to absorb and accept because of all the emotions that wrap people’s minds when they do happen, and because of the hypersensationalism that takes place in the media when these mass killings do occur. 

Today, because of the internet, news seems to travel at the speed of light, and in the age of the 24 hour news cycle, incidents like the mass shootings that took place over the last weekend appear to happen more frequently. 

Do not misunderstand the call to keep things in perspective. It is not an attempt to minimize these awful acts of violence that do occur. In an ideal, perfect world none of these acts of violence would take place, but we do not live in a perfect world. Bad things happen! Once again, that is the sad ugly truth.  

The best that we can hope to do this is keep  the occurence of these godawful incidents at a minimum, and as noted earlier, currently these acts are at the lowest they have been in decades. 

Pointing this out does not bring any comfort to those who have lost their loved ones, and society should never become callous and or lose sensitivity to these things. Data and statistics do not mean a thing to the mother whose daughter will never again be walking through the front door simply because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

Society should not be comfortable even if only one of these incidents happened once every ten years because this behavior simply is not acceptable in a civil society. 

People should be putting their heads together to find ways to confront this issue. At the top of the list should be the question of evil and what needs to be done to stop people from lashing out in such a violent manner.
