Trump goes high, while the Democrats go low

Less than 4 minute read

August 9, 2019

Unlike many people in the media and DC political bubbles, I try to stay in touch with what Americans who don’t talk for a living are thinking.  And I’m definitely getting the sense that the liberal media outlets and Democrat politicians have greatly overplayed their hand with this whole “Trump is a racist white supremacist who hates brown people and he and his supporters are responsible for all mass shootings, including the one committed by a socialist Elizabeth Warren supporter” crusade. 

(FYI: Conservative comedian and commentator Mark Dice has put together a compilation video of Trump denouncing racism, white supremacy and the Klan, with clips stretching all the way back to 2000.  During that same year, Joe Biden was still proudly serving in the Senate alongside Democratic Party elder statesman and former “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK, Robert Byrd, who would remain in office until his death in 2010):  )

The first regular Americans who got a chance to appear on a camera that “Beto” or Cory wasn’t hogging were the San Antonio residents who got doxed by Rep. Joaquin Castro and exposed to possible violence from the unhinged left for donating to Trump’s campaign.  They were understandably furious.  Some had also donated to Castro and his brother, Julian (probably just business owners covering all bets), but I’m sure that won’t ever happen again. They’re going to remember this in San Antonio longer than they remember the Alamo. Anyone thinking of challenging Castro for his House seat might want to file now and avoid the rush.

Next, we heard from the victims of the shooters and their families.  The hotheads were screaming that Trump shouldn’t visit El Paso and Dayton (according to the obviously focus-group-tested phrase of the day, he had “blood on his hands.”) Trump ignored them and did the right thing anyway.  While they tried to gin up hatred and division for political advantage, he was doing what Presidents are supposed to do: comforting the victims and attempting to heal and reassure the nation.  And surprise!  The people he came to visit were grateful.  In fact, they remarked that the Trump they met surprised them by being nothing like the ogre depicted in the media (this theme has been repeated many times over the past couple of years by people who meet Trump in person.)

And I already told you how liberals are fuming because some Trump supporters staged a volunteer clean-up in Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore district, the one that Trump was branded as a racist and “white supremacist” for calling crime-ridden and rat-infested, even though everyone knows that it is.  But the residents not only welcomed and thanked the volunteers, many went on camera to say Trump’s comments weren’t racist, and they appreciated someone in power finally calling out Baltimore’s Democratic government for ignoring their problems for so long.

And now, we know why Trump called out Cummings on the condition of his district, and it wasn’t about racism or political sniping.  He was asked to do it by retired NFL player Jack Brewer, who is black.  Brewer says he had a chance to meet Trump in July and “I told him please call out Elijah Cummings and Baltimore.” Brewer said he’d just left Baltimore, where he’d seen what kids were growing up in, “and the reason why is because their politicians, their political leaders, are going out and they’re worrying about the issues that raise them money…and that is not the poor, black kid.”  He pointed out that on the same weekend as the El Paso and Dayton shootings, a total of 51 people were shot in Chicago and Baltimore, “and no one says anything.”

That’s because the politicians who are responsible for those cities would rather attack people who point out the problems than do anything to fix them.

After two years of hearing that Trump isn’t “presidential,” this week, he not only appeared presidential, but his opponents appeared so unpresidential that they made him look like Abe Lincoln – another Republican whom Democrats of the time hated and ridiculed as unfit to be President.

    Listening to my car radio on the way to do errands, I heard Rush say that the business man who was names by the Castro brothers who they hoped to ruin his business, had people lined up to do business. People are not as uninformed or uneducated as the media seems to think. Too bad the majority of media people don't talk about the good things that come from bad or evil. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed with wit and facts.

    The incredible thing is how insulting this candidates and media are against the American voters. They seem to think that they are some kind of superior beings. How pompous and arrogant they sound. Thank for letting me say my piece. By the way, I am Venezuela by birth and a citizen by choice and I support the president’s policies at least he does not act like a wannabe dictator

    I am from Illinois and had the same thought about the correlation between
    Trump and Lincoln. I visited his museum in Springfield and was surprised at
    the posters of the day that were so vile and mocking of Lincoln. I guess admiring
    Lincoln all my life made me blind to his critics. I can only hope for a better outcome for Trump.

    I'm a supporter of you and president Trump, but please look into the facts about abraham Lincoln who could have prevented the civil war from happening. He refused to negotiate with the confederacy. Let's be honest, and not like "honest Abe."

    President Trump is the man for our times. Our country is sick and is in need of "medication" and inoculation from the "diseases" we see played out on secular TV and people in American who do not believe in the American values, dream or God. Pres. Trump is the only reason America is
    standing (teetering) as he is a true American and so are his supporters. We live in the greatest country in history and true Americans know it. If in any other country these "trouble makers" would be taken care of and not put on the news. Are you better off now than you were past
    20 years or so - I believe yes and we see a President with the PEOPLE not the DC politicians which look only after themselves and who pays them. Pres. Trump is self made and loves his/our USA. 2020 Pres. Trump will win again God willing...Pray for this man, his family and those
    in authority wanting to good for our beloved USA - like Mr. Huckabee.

    Every situation that the libs are blasting towards President Trump seems to be more in the line of "distraction" from what President Trump is ACCOMPLISHING. They are so very jealous with ENVOY they cannot CONTROL their blatant RAGE. They cannot ACCOMPLISH even a MINUTE FRACTION OF WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS.
    God Bless and keep you and President Trump SAFE.

    once again, you are right on the MARK. And I would venture to guess that 75 - 80% of all Americans would agree with you. But don't put it past the Democrats to play as dirty as they have to, to undermine President Trump's re-election. This isn't really about politics (although they pretend that it is). It's about money - and who controls the purse strings. They would start a war if they had to - just to keep Trump from being reelected. Collateral damages are not a concern for them. One does not have to look much further than Benghazi for proof of that.

    I really feel that the left is scared to death that the era of the ever expanding government may have met its match in President Trump! They see the end of their power and prestige! They are also seeing that the free market actually works and they can't stand being wrong for the last 80 years!

    The bloodbath someone mentioned on FB just got some more ammo with Trump in El Paso and Dayton. Real people are seeing what the real DT is all about and they appreciate it. The failure of libs in cities is even MORE apparent now that we had the clean up in Baltimore. Where were dems? Nowhere NEAR the clean up effort. 2020 is shaping up very nicely. All Trump has to do is be him in all the rallies and the humiliation of the century will take place. 1984 squared? We as conservatives can laugh at how foolish and blind libs are. Alinsky didn't prepare them for their foolishness. And the Democratic Socialists? What a laughable bunch. They are going to die from their own foolishness and division. they have no clue how to do anything but complain.

    Mike Help me with this People of color have a lot to offer what is the problem with people like A. Sharpton C. Booker E. Cummings M. Watters D. Brazile J Williams these people want to keep people of color where they are at in the inner cities no one in America deserves that. They fight against the President that wants to help with economic issues educational issues and I wish he could help them with Family issues people you need to figure that out a person with children could use 3 adults in keeping up with kids not one person can do it by itself bring children into the world stay with them most animals do not abandon their offspring why do humans do it that's a start. People from the Left side of Congress get out of the way for 2 decades let real Conservatives fix what you have ruined plan a trip all of you to North Korea you will blend in better with your ideas you may be a bit taller your ideas there will be a better fit for the people there. Lefties you are on a dead end street with your ideas Really China North Korea would like to adopt them Oh wait they already have!!!!!!!!!

    You would think that members of U.S. House of Representatives would be subject to some form of a Code of Conduct. If what Castro did is not some form, and a big one, of a violation then what the heck does? Waiting to see if Pelosi gets involved but I won't hold my breath. Maybe someone should release the names and businesses of a Democrat or two. Nadler and Schiff come to mine.

    It's the same old tired thing day after day. The liberals have done nothing to help so they divert any attention brought to them by pointing a finger at something or someone else. The problem with that is there are three fingers pointing back at them and God knows what is going on even if they don't believe in Him. I really mean it when I say I feel sorry for them. They just have no idea what they are doing to themselves.

    It seems all the hate, anger and vilification of every day Americans is coming from the democrats and MSM. I don't even watch the news anymore because of the lunacy spewed by the left. There is no logical, rational discourse on any subject. When will the Republicans as a party stand up and call BS this disgrace.

    The SMS has derided Trump at every turn. That he still performs his function as President is amazing, because many Americans would not stay in a job that resulted in false insults and horrible labels being applied to them and their family. I'm pleased that President Trump has risen above the insults and name-calling to remain in the job to which he was elected. It is evident that he has great love for America and its people.
