Connie Hanna is a friend who writes a column for The County Compass, a local newspaper. Her column is called the “Trump Report Card.” One of her recent columns was particularly insightful, and I want to share it below:
It has been said that a socialist is a person who is too stupid to know that they’re a communist! Our government is littered with these people. Very few will even call themselves a socialist; Bernie Sanders is the exception. They prefer to hide behind the moniker, “progressive.” They are primarily also known as Democrats, but there are more than a few Republicans involved as well. However, the logical, practical conclusion is that progressive = socialist =communist. Many of the people involved (elected lawmakers and unelected bureaucrats alike) are willing to further the “progressive” agenda for the massive amounts of cash and perks available to them from lobbyists and foreign governments. Regardless of their personal motive, they are enabling and abetting the very people who have a blatant and callous disregard for the well-being of the American people. They have become part of the problem.
If President Trump had any doubts (which is not likely) as to the nature or the identity of the enemy, it has become evident during the time that the country has been shut-down. The governors, mayors, and sheriffs of several states seem to be trying to outdo each other with their edicts and mandates. The governors of the states of Washington, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania are a few of those who have overstepped their legal authority in several ways. Gretchen Whitmer, Governor of Michigan, actually BANNED TRAVEL BETWEEN TWO RESIDENCES. In addition, although she deems marijuana to be essential, she’s declared vegetable garden seeds to be off limits. The mayor of Louisville, Kentucky prohibited drive-in church services on Easter. A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order to block it. The fragile economic state of our country right now which was caused by a need to protect the American people from the nasty virus which originated in Wuhan, China has emboldened the very people who are the most dangerous to our way of life. They actually have no authority to force people to remain at home or force businesses to close, but that fact hasn’t stopped their tyrannical actions. What we are experiencing is just a small taste of what we would have to endure if people with this personal and political philosophy were in charge. Remember this and choose wisely in November.
The President’s message to the governors on April 13thvia Twitter was, “Governors, get your states’ testing programs & apparatus perfected. Be ready, big things are happening. No excuses! The Federal Government is there to help. We are testing more than any country in the World. Also, gear up with Face Masks!” He sent a strong, decisive, no nonsense message, don’t you think? The President sees some of the states descending into tyranny, and he knows it could become an explosive situation considering all the other stresses people are facing right now. The American people have been very patient, but there is a limit, and we need to get back to a semblance of normal. President Trump is sending signals that we need to move in that direction at every press conference recently, and April 13th was no exception. (As usual, you’re on the right track, Mr. President. “A+.”)
In addition to the power grabbing governors, President Trump has had to contend with attempts at sabotage by “journalists” during the press briefings which he holds each and every day of the week. The briefings are usually scheduled for 5:00 p.m. They are very informative, but they are carried by very few news outlets. However, FOX News and One America News (oann.com) both carry the entire presidential briefing each day. In addition, they are streaming to the internet and can be seen on YouTube. There have actually been two reporters on two different days who attended the press briefings who represent “news” outlets based in China and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). These two have outlets are here, but they are basically Chinese propaganda machines; how in the world was this allowed to happen? They lied of course to gain entrance, and when the President questioned them, they lied to him. Fortunately, we haven’t seen either of them again, but there are just so many people working against him, and yet he continues to prevail. Great swaths of the American “media” represent and sell the world-views of subversive, evil people. Their orders are to do whatever is necessary to denigrate and destroy the President. He is calm and even tempered which is remarkable considering the pure vitriol coming from them. As author, John LeCarre, said, ”Some things are a necessary evil, and some things are more evil than necessary.” Stay strong Mr. President and remember, GOD WINS! (And by the way, sir, another ”A+++!”)
Thank you, Connie, for sharing the truth.
