I don’t understand why the Left is so upset with the President’s plan to withdraw US troops from Syria. And there is potential talk of getting our forces out of other areas in the Middle East as well. Why does the Left hate this idea?
In 2008, then US Senator and candidate for President, Obama made the campaign promise to end US involvement in the Middle East that was started by President Bush after the events of 9-11. Obama also campaigned on closing the military prison at Gitmo as well. You would think the Left would be enthusiastic about the end to these American Imperialistic hostilities.
Except to the Left a campaign promise is just a vote grabbing tool. They are not anything that is going to be kept. Get the useful idiots to vote you into office and then keep them fighting each other in little factions while working on the true Leftist agenda. That is to destroy the American Republic from within.
But because President Trump is not only fulfilling campaign promises, he is doing so against the total opposition of the Washington Democratic Republican establishment swamp. President Trump has proved that promises made to voters can be kept. And we will be expecting all of our elected officials to do so in the future. That is why the Left hates this idea now.
The reason why there aren’t enough votes in the Senate to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare is very simple. The proposed legislation does not repeal and replace Obamacare. It’s that simple.
The proposed legislation modifies Obamacare but it is not a repeal and replace which was mandated by the People. And thankfully there are some Senators who know and recognize this fact. Thus there aren’t enough votes for it to pass.
With the mid-term elections just around the corner those wise Senators don’t want to come home to their People and explain why they voted for legislation that breaks their promise. And those that were in favor of the bill will have a lot of explaining to do when they get home.
Both the House and Senate Republicans need to grow a pair, as the saying goes, and pass the complete repeal of Obamacare. Then work on getting the health insurance industry in line and get reforms in on actual health care as well.
There is a lot of flak out there right now against Donald Trump and the payments made to Veterans groups. This is just basically hate speech against The Donald. And used as a false narrative to “prove” the view held by those who are against a Trump Administration.
Donald Trump held a fundraiser with about a day’s notice near the beginning of the year. It was the night that the Republican debate was held in Des Moines. Trump decided to skip that debate and hold a veteran fundraising event instead.
At the event he was joined by two of the 2nd tier candidates at that time. Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. Since they weren’t participating in the main debate they joined Donald Trump in this worthy cause of supporting our veterans.
It seems that many people don’t know how fundraisers work. During a fundraiser you get as much real cash and checks as you can plus as many high dollar pledges as possible. Together this makes a total amount the fundraiser makes. In the case of Donald Trump’s Veteran Fundraiser. That was about $6,000,000. A good chuck of change. Most of it in pledges.
A pledge is where someone promises to pay at a later date, sometimes making multiple payments overtime. Public Television does this sort of thing every year. And like Public Television, sometimes those donors don’t follow through for one reason or another. Even in the case of veterans.
So it’s not Donald Trump being dishonest to veterans. Far from it. It’s the donors to his fundraiser that haven’t come through yet. Mr Trump had distributed a large amount of funds already and more are on the way.
So The Donald, is keeping his promise to the veterans while others are attempting to smear The Donald’s name for their own agenda.
