Trump getting the job done

Dear Editor,

Four days after Trump’s inauguration, Dennis Pager wrote an article titled “America’s Second Civil War.” What has happened since is proving such is true.

For 50 years, the political left has been growing in the fields of academia, press, the entertainment industry, liberal Democrats and courts. This results in erasing some of America’s Judeo-Christian foundations and disregarding the rule of law.

As soon as President Trump was elected, the left increased its unprecedented resistance, including Antifa. Most disturbing is that some senior unelected FBI, Justice Department and a few upper intelligence community employees/ex-employees began to act as a 4th wing of government, which is how “banana republics” start.

For a very disturbing revelation about this I highly recommend legal analyst Gregg Jarrett’s “The Russian Hoax: The illicit scheme to clear Hillary Clinton and frame Donald Trump.” It is very readable with the 793 footnotes at the end.

Due to a lie, a FISA Court permitted wiretapping of some of Trump’s people. Next, a leak from former FBI Director James Comey wove its way to Rod Rosenstein, who appointed their mutual friend Robert Mueller as Special Counsel 17 months ago. So far there is zero evidence about Trump colluding with the Russians.

I find it mindboggling that the left supports open borders, doing away with ICE and supports 550+ cities/states supporting sanctuary cities hindering federal law enforcement from arresting illegal immigrants with felony charges. Have any of them thought through the unintended consequences of that?

Trump was elected with 304 electoral votes versus Secretary Clinton’s 227, so Donald J. Trump is our president!

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House. says, “Trump’s greatest strength has been his ability to understand that clearly confronting an unacceptable reality and articulating its failure with passion and conviction can change history.”

The administration and Republican majorities in the House and Senate are making excellent progress, despite all of the aforementioned resistance. To see a list, simply Google “289 accomplishments of the Trump administration.”

I will mention but three accomplishments. By far the most consequential is the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, which will influence Supreme Court decisions for decades.

Second is the strength of the economy, which has resulted in record employment for African-Americans, Hispanics and all others.

Third is what the Trump administration is doing internationally, such as defusing possible nuclear attacks by negotiating with North Korea, cancelling the Iran Nuclear Deal and withdrawing us from the one-sided Paris Accord and Trans-Pacific Partnership. Additionally, he has worked with China and our allies to change China’s growing but unchecked domination.

There are many problems where Democrats and Republicans have “kicked the can down the street” for decades. Problems such as immigration, health care, climate change, a debt of $21.5 trillion, the opioid crisis and underfunding Medicare by $37 trillion. Despite this, the left wants “Medicare for all” which is estimated to cost $32.6 trillion in the first 10 years!

The synagogue killings and pipe bombs once again alert us to the mentally deranged in our society and what we can do.

If the Republicans maintain control of the House and Senate, I am confident the economy will continue to grow, the size of government will continue to get smaller and the aforementioned problems will be addressed. If the left wins the House, they will concentrate on impeaching Trump, but the Senate will not find him guilty just as they did not with President Clinton. I’m not here to defend some of Trumps words, but I find what he has done and will do to be much more consequential. Republican and Democrat presidents over the past 50 years were no doubt “more presidential” but look where that got us.

We are at a fork in the road and depending on how the midterm elections go will significantly impact which fork we as a country take.
