With few exceptions, every time I turn on a news program or open a website, the so-called reporters or journalists are screaming “the sky is falling!”
In the mainstream media, there’s always some catastrophic reportage about the President Trump and/or Mrs. Trump. So many great things are happening in this country, but you’d never know it listening to them.
The Trumps aren’t bowing or curtsying when meeting Queen Elizabeth II. OMG! The world is coming to an end! Whether the Trumps are holding hands is another concern for angst. Really?
President Trump is the first President to ask our NATO allies to pay their fair share and this, according to the media, is considered negatively confrontational. When President Obama did it, I didn’t hear a peep from the Left. But because President Trump doesn’t think the taxpayers of the United States should be carrying about 70% of the financial burden of NATO, it’s the end of the NATO alliance.
Germany chooses to buy natural gas from Russia using the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline and President Trump expresses concern that such a deal will give Russia “undue influence over Berlin and, by extension, fracturing the solidarity of NATO” and the press goes wild. Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden, during the Obama administration, didn’t think it was a good idea and the press sat on their hands and said nothing. Difference? It’s President Trump.
After the Helsinki meeting with Vladimir Putin, Mr. Trump, according to some, is treasonous, has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, is now impeachable and is in “Putin’s pocket.” While I readily agree that the President is not always the most articulate, and corrected a misspoken word the day after the summit, I have no idea what went on behind closed doors …. and no talking head does either. Yet, the hysterics on tv are having a collective meltdown.
The nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh will bring the world as we know it to an end. Anyone who knows anything about the separation of powers, knows the job of the judicial branch of government is to interpret laws. The legislative branch of government makes laws. The Left obviously doesn’t know the distinction.
Then, of course, we have the Democrats who are blasting President Trump as sexist for not nominating a woman to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett; yet the same people collectively said they wouldn’t support her anyway. Insanity.
When I turn on CNN or MSNBC to see what these haters are actually saying, I have to conclude either of two things. These “analysts” are ignorant OR they’re deliberately misleading their viewers in an attempt to frighten them into believing the appointment of a conservative Justice to the Supreme Court will do away with gay marriage and make abortion illegal.
Anyone who knows anything about the Supreme Court and stare decisis knows the likelihood of either happening is practically nil. The system doesn’t work that way.
I still recall listening to a woman at my gym the day after Election Day 2016. After her 4-letter tirade against then newly-elected Donald Trump, she said she told her lesbian daughter to get married immediately before a justice of the peace (rather than wait until her August pre-planned wedding) because come January 20, 2017, gay marriage would no longer be legal. I can’t imagine how stupid this woman would have to be to believe that.
The same concerns are now being expressed regarding abortion. The Left wants people to believe that if Justice Kavanaugh is confirmed, come October 1, 2018, when the Supreme Court convenes, abortion will be illegal. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, incredulously, went so far as to threaten to “sue the Supreme Court” if Roe v. Wade is overturned. I really hate using this word yet again, but how stupid is Gov. Cuomo?
It’s obvious that Civics is no longer taught in school. Students have no idea what the three branches of government are. Based upon the continuing cries from the Left that Hillary Clinton was robbed because she won the popular vote, they clearly have no understanding of how the Electoral College works.
Listening to the Left, you’d swear life on Earth, as we know it, is coming to an end.
I don’t get it, but if you do, God bless you.
