Government policy affects our lives. So it is necessary to follow politics. Political party affiliation is not necessary though. All political parties are flawed. I’m neither Republican nor Democrat but lean Libertarian. It’s the policy which becomes law that’s important no matter who initiates it -- not the party. Too many good people forget that. I like all my Democrat affiliated friends, for instance, but in today’s toxic political atmosphere, more than at any other time in history, the letter “D” in Democrat stands for deceit.
Party affiliated Democrats today are infected by an irrational hatred for President Donald Trump bordering on pathological. Lacking any credible evidence to support their hatred they consistently employ the artifice of deceit. They lie about the facts. They repeat the lies over and over again in the mainstream media until the people are inundated by falsehoods and deceit. The politically uninformed are conditioned to believe the lies.
Trump is a racist Democrats chant again and again without any evidence. I’ve observed and responded to that lie on these pages with of mountains of evidence to the contrary. He’s not a racist. In fact, he’s accomplished more for race relations during his life than most politicians.
Trump is mentally and physically ill claim the Democrats. He’s crazy. He’s demented. He exhibits early Alzheimer’s disease. He suffers dementia and serious cognitive impairments. He has heart disease. So he’s both mentally and physically unfit to be President of the United States. This is just more deceit. These are bald faced lies.
White House physician, Admiral Ronny Jackson – the same physician who treated Trump’s predecessors, Obama and Bush – shot down every single one of these lies in detail last week at an official press briefing, calling the 71 year old’s physical and mental health “excellent.” He’s absolutely “fit for duty,” and will likely be in good health for the rest of his term, as well as a possible second term, Jackson confirmed. In fact, Trump performed “exceedingly well,” scoring 30 out of 30 questions on a cognitive assessment test and showed no signs of cognitive decline.
“The pipe dream of using ‘incapacity’ via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove Mr. Trump, came to a crashing halt this week courtesy of Dr. Ronny Jackson, former President Barack Obama’s doctor,” observed New York Times best-selling author, Tammy Bruce. “I can reliably say, and I think that the folks in the mental health [field] would back me up on the fact that if he had some kind of mental, cognitive issue, that this test is sensitive enough, it would have picked up on it. He would not have got 30 out of 30. … And my personal experience is that he has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever,” said the physician who actually examined Trump.
Now Democrats’ deceitfully claim that Republicans are to blame for the “Trump government shutdown.” The facts, however, clearly show that the Democrats insisted on the “Schumer shutdown,” all because of their irrational hatred for Trump.
Republicans passed a continuing resolution in the House to fund the government. Only three Democrats voted for it even though no Democrats objected to any of its provisions. Sixty votes were required in the Senate to make it law. Senator Schumer objected to Senator McConnell’s motion of unanimous consent for a 50-vote final passage vote, effectively killing it and thereby causing the government shutdown.
These lies represent only the tip of the Democrat iceberg of political deceit. (more to come next week)
The letter “D” in Democrat stands for deceit.
