A tale of two standards

December 8, 2018

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.

    Before long she will make such a huge mistake they will throw her out.

    I don't think she will last long! But then, she is a Democrat. My goodness, is she lacking an education!

    People make fun of O-C because she says the dumbest things and doesn’t even understand how government works! She shouldn’t be there - which reveals how STUPID New Yorkers are. Sorry ... the truth hurts.

    Someone needs to wise up this person from being an idiot. She has no idea about anything. Ignorance is no excuse for her.

    I agree with you. I don't understand Mueller's investigation of things that happened before Trump was elected President when there is so much about the Clinton Foundation begging to be examined and so much that Obama and Biden have said and done since the Election that undermine our nation and the President. That is a horse of another color but it is proof of the double standard we are battling.

    As for the Trump tweets and comments... He is brash and he speaks off the cuff and he says what he thinks. His filter is not fine tuned but I find it refreshing!

    As for the young newbie, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who does not have a clue as to what her duties are or what her responsibilities are. I do believe an Ethics Complaint should be filed against her. She needs to learn there are consequences and she needs to learn what her limits are. What better way to learn than to suffer consequences? We don't want her to grow up to be like Maxine Waters or Nancy Pelosi or Diane Feinstein so we better start the "tough love" now!

    I am so sick and tired of liberals double standards! It’s time their treasonous act were dealt with one way are the other. They think they can do are saying anything they want! But God help us if we confront them on their stupidity!

    We, the American people, are so sick and fed up with all of the double standards it's nauseating!!! And yet it continues unabated and we feel absolutely helpless to do anything about it. The Clintons, obama, Comey, Mueller, all of them and they walk the streets free as birds, with no fear of any punishment for the many crimes they committed against the United States. And most of us know, nothing ever will happen. I so appreciate your newsletters and read them every evening, so please keep them coming!! And thank your daughter from the American people for the wonderful job she's doing in the thankless position she's in as Press Secretary!! We do love her!!!

    So sick and tired of this double standard. The standard of, "Its OK if I or we do it, but its not OK if you or anyone that isn't on their side does it." I pray the radical left comes tumbling down right now.
