A Tale of Two Standards:

1.  As a businessman with no prior political experience, President Trump sometimes tweets things that would be fine for someone in the private sector to say, but that violate some rule, written or unwritten, for what politicians are supposed to say.

Democratic reaction:  “Outrage! Investigation!! Special counsel!!! Impeachment!!!! PRISON!!!!!”

2.  “Democratic” socialist Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweets a threat against the President’s son to target him with House subpoenas because she doesn’t like a meme he tweeted.  She backpedals after it’s pointed out that this is a clear violation of House ethics regulations against abuse of power and targeting citizens for exercising their free speech rights. 

Democratic reaction: “Hey, she’s a newcomer to politics!  She didn’t know any better!  She didn’t mean any harm! It wasn’t really even a ‘threat!’  Say, why don’t you Republicans just chill out and quit being mean to her?!”

I think this proves how unfair it is to accuse the left of having no ethical standards.  In fact, they have so many ethical standards, it’s enough to make two completely different sets.

    Ethics are of God. The godless DNC (democratic national communists), and too many RINO’s, have no ‘ethics’.

    There is no excuse for “Democratic” socialist Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be given ANY benefit of the doubt. If she never read any accounts or listened to any news channel, I MIGHT consider excusing her for her potty mouth. That will never happen. She is nothing but a Socialist Democrat that wants the government to pay for everything. She has no clue on how to be a representative. She has no clue on where the money is coming from.

    With so many, politicians and fake news, going after our President to impeach and imprison him, he could do as many leaders of countries have done since the beginning of time. He could call out the military that he is still in control of, make a list of all those trying to impeach him and send him to prison, gather them up, line them all up against a wall and shoot them. Problem solved, now go on saving our country and our economy.

    It’s painfully obvious that Ms. Ocazio is lacking basic historical, political and legal knowledge. She has hooked her wagon to a lot of movements without any understanding of how they operate. Socialism for example and all that it entails!!

    In reality there is no difference in what Alexandra said and what some who are in prison have said. Another reason to question who stuffed the ballot boxes to get her into congress. An extremely odd and dangerous circumstance.

    I have been listening and reading ALL sortsa' crap for years and it is amazing how LITTLE is actually done about it?!?! Even when it is OBVIOUS, nothing is done?!?! I am sorry, BUT, it is kinda' obvious that we are gonna' have to wait for it ALL to fall apart and things go to, you know where and then something will have to be done, BUT, it will be ugly and it is SO unnecessary!! People like you, Rand and Ron Paul, your daughter Sarah and of course, others, are SO in the minority that ugliness and violence may be the only answer?!?!? Just take a look at Paris!!!

    I am with most AMERICANS who want this system to FINALLY WORK for THE PEOPLE...get out of out private lives, uphold the GOLDEN RULE and then let life take place; BUT bar this prisident from the internet! (tweeting)

    I am going to sound like President Trump now because I also am NOT a politician. I have become so sick and tired of the Communist/Democrat Party that when I even see their name I want to wretch. What I want to see is a LOT of them in orange jumpsuits clinging to the bars that is protecting me from their evil demonic behavior. I love it when Sarah, your sweet beautiful daughter, scowls at them. As a matter of fact we get to see very little of her nice smile as the arm of the Democrat Party that we call the media displays such bad behavior that she can't help but scowl. Love it - hope she never leaves as long as President Trump is there.

    This double standard is crushing my confidence in justice. The Mueller investigation alone depicts the biased application of justice. With the loss of control of the house I fear the future only holds greater Injustices.

    I am so sick of hearing about this unfairness and not being able to do anything about it. I think I will just go back to the sandpit and bury my head again until the next election....

    I think the Democrats are full of it they're nothing but hypocrites we might as well face the fact there's nothing that the Republicans are the conservatives will ever do that will please them they're Too Faced so that's my comment may not be what you wanted but that's what you got I cannot stand a Democrat.

    You are so right. That old saying "what is good for the goose is good for the gander" (hmm, is that a bad phrase according to PETA?) certainly must be one the democrats never grew up hearing. I do wish they would all just shut up and sit down and get to the work they were elected to do. Heck, if they weren't blowing off at the mouth constantly, President Trump wouldn't be tweeting as much.

    This woman should not be in Congress. She has no sense of history, that of her country and that of Socialism. If she thinks she can be in Congress and support her PERSONAL special agenda, she will loose. Even New Yorkers in the district that elected her will see through her callosity.

    She may call herself a Socialist Democrat but she speaks like a Communist. This "House" will go down in History for the fruit loops the voters elected; home grown in the PC religiosity-( the Tsunami that has covered the land for eight years and now we see the damage it has done to our nation.) Lord we needs You to do an intervention.

    I think the right / Republicans should get back at every accusation, slander, threat, etc. No President should get shut down by one federal judge, either. Where is the law on that? No matter who has the power and numbers on the right, the left has an excuse or bullying tactic to get in their faces!! They are utterly disgusting and bringing the culture and country to an end or a bad
    one, like the 1860's, but worse. The 9th needs to pound sand or be shut down by the other federal judges! Where are the judges that stand for the law? Why are they not speaking out in rebuttal? Why do we only hear from one bad one?

    I would love to see Twitter crash and die for at least a week. It would be awesome to not have all the noise from all sides. However it would make you work a bit harder for material for your blog sir, LOL. Love your take on things.

    Ocasio Cortez is so utterly clueless about the purpose or function of government, that she actually thinks she gets to target American citizens minus the commission of any crime. Where else but in politics does someone get hired without the slightest idea of what the organization actually does? This is beyond disturbing.

    Why doesn't our Republican Congress do something to stop these kinds of illegal actions? The democrats act and react to EVERY little thing without having any power to do so! Wait until they take over the house--it is going to be nasty! May God help us!

    Let the voters help drain the swamp, one "seat" at a time ...

    I think it's time for the liberals to just grow up, face the music, and stop criticizing everyone who disagrees with them. Otherwise, they're welcome to take a sabbatical leave to live in one of their favorite countries: Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, Honduras, or any of the countries that hand out freebies. Oh, and take their drugs with them; I want to know how other border agents deal with that.
