Donald Trump Mocked a Reporter with a Disability – Or Did He?

trump-vets
The media got it SO wrong, BUT do you know WHY they force-feed this story?

You’ll be very surprised! Even as much as I support Donald Trump, this is one of those stories that really bothered me. But, like everyone else, I was only getting a small bit of the whole story.
  
I’ll say it again, believe HALF what you see and NONE of what you hear – UNLESS you do extensive research and find the absolute, verifiable proof to support the claim. And, unless it comes from the DNC or Hillary, then of course, believe NOTHING!

Check this…Democrats and establishment GOP opponents of Donald Trump, over the past year, push the “MYTH” that Donald Trump MOCKED the disability of New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski.

Granted, this accusation has served them very well as a convenient tool to smear Trump’s character AND to avoid having to confront him on substantive political issues.

But is it true?

Without reinventing the wheel, I found this article on Catholics for Trump. Don’t let the name fool you, they have done an excellent job at providing links, images and VIDEO to support their research.

THIS is the story the media is not telling you along with a VERY clear explanation of WHY they are not telling you the truth! I urge you to take a few minutes to read this article, watch the video samples and click on their links. SEE the TRUTH with your OWN two eyes and hear it with your OWN two ears!

Labor Unions Including the UAW Invest Millions of Member Dues in Hillary Clinton

 labor unions political contributions

Never more than this year. The Union Leadership will take member dues and spend them to support Democratic Candidates that the members don’t support. 40% of Union members vote Republican but 90% of Union money goes to Democrats. We support Unions and we support Union workers when done right. The problem is that Leftist Union Leadership has hijacked the Unions just like they have hijacked our government and other institutions. Many unions no longer represent the best interests of their members. They shake their members down for money to support other leftist who are destroying our nation.

Here is a list of Union donations and their rankings – 90% of which went to Democrat Candidates in 2014 and the trend continues. This list of unions top the Koch Brothers in political donations. Via Open Secrets:

2.) American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees $60,667,379
4.) National Education Assn $53,594,488
7.) Intl Brotherhood of Electrical Workers $44,478,789
8.) United Auto Workers $41,667,858
9.) Carpenters & Joiners Union $39,260,371
10.) Service Employees International Union $38,395,690
11.) Laborers Union $37,494,010
12.) American Federation of Teachers $36,713,325
13.) Communications Workers of America $36,188,135
14.) Teamsters Union $36,123,209
16.) United Food & Commercial Workers Union $33,756,550
20.) Machinists & Aerospace Workers Union $31,313,097
23.) AFL-CIO $30,938,977
32.) National Assn of Letter Carriers $26,106,359
39.) Plumbers & Pipefitters Union $23,886,248
42.) Operating Engineers Union $23,036,848
43.) International Assn of Fire Fighters $22,963,260
46.) Sheet Metal Workers Union $22,372,978
59.) Koch Industries $18,083,948

According to this Rasmussen Report of August 10, 2016, most voters – including those who are now or have been union members – believe the majority of union leaders are out of touch with their membership nationwide.

The Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 20% of Likely U.S. Voters think most organized labor leaders do a good job representing union members. Fifty-seven percent (57%) say most union leaders are out of touch with most of their members from throughout the nation. One-in-four (24%) are undecided.

To see the survey questions and wording of this national survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters conducted August 3-4, 2016, click here.

Even among voters who are now or have been a member of a labor union, only 25% think union leaders do a good job representing their membership. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of these voters say most organized labor leaders are out of touch with their members. This is a concern to Democrats this election cycle with many union members reportedly leaning toward Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump because of his positions on jobs and free trade even though union leaders are solidly behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Labor unions donated nearly a half-billion dollars to Democrats and left-wing causes from 2012 to 2014, according to this report. The $418 million identified in the report from Center for Union Facts is in addition to millions more spent in 2015 and this year by organized labor, long a reliable backer of Democrat and left-wing causes.

Do Your Own Research: 
 
The Center for Union Facts (CUF) has compiled the single most comprehensive database of information about labor unions in the United States. The database contains more than 100 million facts, ranging from basic union finances and leader salaries, to political operations, to strikes and unfair labor practices, and much more. The data comes from various local, state, and federal government agencies that track labor union operations.

Here’s How Second Amendment People Can Deal with Hillary Clinton

This is just one more example of people hearing what the media TELLS them to hear. I watched it as it was happening and was SHOCKED to see people getting their panties in a wad. What I HEARD was the 2nd Amendment people - either voters or the NRA with all the massive amount of money they spend on lobbying, special interests and political contributions MIGHT be able to prevent her from getting to the place where she COULD appoint SCOTUS. Stop being so damn dramatic people!

Seriously, check out the dollar amounts and rankings on this screenshot from OpenSecrets.org National Rifle Association page and tell me you don’t think the “Second Amendment People” can do anything about her and helping her LOSE the election! NRA IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Donald Trump set off a massive shit-storm earlier today with remarks about the right to bear arms that were surprisingly interpreted as a threat against Hillary Clinton. Here’s what he said…
"Hillary wants to abolish, essentially the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know. But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if Hillary gets to put her judges in, right now we're tied."
Trump's comments alarmed some overly-dramatic liberals as to whether he was threatening her life or calling for increased political activity. Watch for yourself here:
Imagine that! If you support your second amendment right – make sure you are registered to vote. Make sure you are registered properly and do your part!

Louisiana Flooding and Disgusting News Media


Why isn’t the news media reporting about what’s going on with the flooding down in Louisiana? Does anyone remember Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans? Everyone gave President George W. Bush such a hard time because he didn’t react quickly enough to their liking. During Hurricane Katrina it seemed the news media at the time would only report from New Orleans. I know for a fact that New Orleans wasn’t the only location hard hit at that time. Gulfport and Biloxi Mississippi suffered greatly but you didn’t hear much about that because it wasn’t divisive enough or headline grabbing. You know, it’s all about the ratings with the news media.

Remember corrupt Mayor Ray Nagin being featured on beloved-by-everyone Oprah Winfrey’s talk show? It was the beginning of the end of my respect for Oprah Winfrey. I’m sure she meant well but her reporting of what was going on in New Orleans wasn’t 100% truthful. She contributed to the false narrative of black people not being helped by our Government. To me, this seems to be the typical liberal narrative.

Remember when Kanye West got on the television and said that President George W. Bush hated black people? I wonder if Kanye Kardashian West is paying attention!? Last time I checked, black people still live in Louisiana. I wonder if Kanye is as critical of President Obama as he was of President George W. Bush – I doubt it! By the way, where is President Obama?

You cannot trust what is being reported in the news. What you see on television is not the complete truth. It’s only a slant depending upon who is in power. If the President of the United States were conservative they’d be getting at it, trying to make it a story about racial bias, or some other story to try and spoon feed more lies to the masses in order to keep us divided and subservient.

I feel sorry for ALL the people in Louisiana and I am praying this disaster subsides quickly so people can get back to their lives. You read that right – I said, “ALL the people in Louisiana.”

When Hillary Points a Finger at Donald Trump She Actually Points Three Fingers Back at Herself

New Hillary Clinton attack ad targets Donald Trump for outsourcing the manufacturing of his products featuring a clip of David Letterman.

This morning, a friend of mine, Angela F, shared this commercial with me. Throughout the election season, she’s been on the fence on how to vote in the general election. She did state that she voted for Donald Trump in the primaries. There have been a few times that Hillary has said things or done things that have completely turned her off to Hillary. When she shared this commercial with me, it included her comment “Here is one of those Hitlary commercials!! Was not gonna Vote for him, but I don’t want Hillary in office!! So I have to vote Trump.



ABOUT THE COMMERCIAL:
 
In 2012, Donald Trump was not a presidential candidate. He was a a businessman and a TV star, with diversified holdings including real estate and a clothing line (then available at Macy’s). He went on David Letterman’s “The Late Show” to plug his new product, as many celebrities do.

But when the topic turned to outsourcing, things got a little awkward.

The Hillary Clinton campaign has re-purposed that interview for a new campaign ad. The entirety of the ad is that snippet of interview.

Letterman holds up shirts and ties and asks where they were made. China for one, Bangladesh another.

MY RESPONSE: 
 
When Angela F shared the commercial with me along with her comment, I responded with the following…

You know, when I saw that commercial I saw it very differently than how the Hillary camp likely intended. How I saw it… Donald Trump has always been a business man. Our government and their taxation tactics and NAFTA made it impossible for businesses to compete and remain in the U.S. Donald Trump did what SO many other businesses did – he took his manufacturing outside the country where he could make a greater profit.

Trump has been very honest and vocal about knowing the system from the OTHER side because he WAS the other side. It is because of THAT kind of knowledge, he will be able to do what is necessary to bring businesses BACK to the U.S. not continue to drive them out as Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton have done.

Donald Trump was on the hot seat on Letterman BECAUSE of Hillary and HER HUSBAND NOT because they created a country that was suitable for him to KEEP his business here, but because they created a country where it was IMPOSSIBLE for him to keep his business here.

Hillary just wants to give everyone the same chance to be successful

Keep in mind, I used to be one who believed that statement. I used to be one who believed everyone deserves the same opportunities and that the government should do their part to make that happen. During my time as a Democrat, I really believed that socialism wasn’t about “giving” everyone the same thing, it’s giving everyone the same chance to be successful.
 
Now, just for a minute, think about that statement. Repeat it a couple of times to yourself, let it sink in real good.

Got it?

Good.

Now, what I have come to realize over the last year, throughout my personal healing from my old beliefs is – that just does NOT make sense. Here’s why…

First of all, free market capitalism IS what made America the greatest country in the world. So IF socialism IS “giving everyone the same chance to be successful”, why then is our “elite establishment” government doing everything humanly possible to place caps on just how successful you can be?
 
Again, take a minute, think about that second statement. Repeat it a couple of times to yourself, let it sink in real good and see if everything doesn’t become much more clear to you like it has for me.

Watch our politicians closely. Listen carefully to what they say – listen for all the little financial motivations that drive them toward running our lives, stealing our ambition and taking our hard earned money to line their pockets by calling it equality, sharing the wealth, corporate tax or whatever the hell they try to mask it with to make it sound like they are doing it FOR YOU.

What will become of us, as a nation, as a workforce, as students if our government gains so much control that it is no longer beneficial to work hard and be as successful as we can possibly be?

A Government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything you have. ~ Ronald Reagan
Take 5 minutes to watch this video – it’s both entertaining and educational. It explains everything in very elementary terms so anyone and everyone can understand more why our government should only protect our rights, not control how successful we can be.

Chris Quinn Accuses Donald Trump and Marco Rubio of Attending Anti-Gay Event in Florida


Chris Quinn shouts at Kayleigh Mcenany Last night while watching the Clinton News Network, Hillary Clinton supporter Christine Quinn and Donald Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany erupted on CNN over the Orlando shooter’s father sitting prominently behind Clinton at her Florida rally this week. McEnany said that “we cannot control how third parties support us,” but made the case that Mateen is with Clinton because of her “weak” policies on ISIS.

McEnany had a massive grin for most of the segment, probably because she was getting to go after Clinton instead of having to excuse Trump’s latest screw-up. She called it “unfathomable” that Seddique Mateen may have been put there by the campaign.

Quinn EXPLODED and said “they” fully disavowed him, calling her insinuations “beyond offensive.” When McEnany tried to jump in, Quinn shouted, “Wait a minute, no!… You can’t ask me a question!”

MY COMMENT: I’ve searched HIGH and LOW for PROOF that Hillary Clinton disavowed Seddique Mateen and find NOTHING. All I have been able to find is that Spokesman, Nick Merrill has said “Hillary Clinton disagrees with Seddique Mateen’s “views and disavows his support.

However, unlike the calls and attacks against Donald Trump for not publically and verbally disavowing David Duke of the KKK, Hillary Clinton has not and the Hillary Campaign has done nothing more than play down the appearance of Saddique Mateen at her Kissimmee rally earlier this week.  

Quinn goes on to list her ABC’s in defense of Hillary Clinton. On her list, ITEM C is the one that caught my attention most. “C – Donald Trump is GOING tomorrow, WITH Marc Rubio, IN Florida, NOT far from the Pulse nightclub, where 49 LGBT people were massacred to an anti-gay organization event. So DO NOT try to equate the mistake the was made by her campaign staff, and I agree with Tara, that whoever was in charge of crowds last night should LOSE THEIR JOB.” 
 
McEnany responded, “Can I ask you a question?”

Quinn, still shouting, “and wait a minute, wait a minute, NO YOU CAN’T ASK ME A QUESTION!”

McEnany said, “‘Cause you can’t answer the question!”

Quinn shot back, “Oh, you can’t ask me a question, honey, I can’t answer!”

The question was “What attracted the father of the Orlando terrorist to you candidate?”
 
Quinn went on with some mumbo-jumbo about the man being mentally ill.

Watch the exchange on YouTube here
 
Now, back to Quinn’s point C! I couldn’t stop thinking about her statement about Donald Trump attending an event with an anti-gay organization. So, as usual, I had to find the TRUTH!

Once I found the TRUTH, I just sat and shook my head, like I do often these days at every bit of shit the Clinton campaign or her supporters throw at Donald Trump.

Here’s the TRUTH!
 
The Wall Street Journal reports Donald Trump is scheduled on Thursday to attend a private gathering of PASTORS in Orlando with Marco Rubio. This event is hosted by the America Renewal Project, which describes itself as “people of faith affecting public policy.” When I clicked through the link they had described as “propagates anti-gay bias” to see just WHY and HOW this organization got the label of being anti-gay, this is what I saw! Screenshot below or you can click the image to see the page for yourself.

donald trump marco rubio attend anti gay event in florida
How in the name of ALL that is Holy they can twist that so ridiculously to make it an anti-gay thing, is beyond me. It is a luncheon for PASTORS and their SPOUSES.
 
Again, believe half what you see and none of what you hear.

Chris Quinn is a loud-mouthed buffoon! She HARDLY has any room to point the finger at anyone and call them bully to any degree!

In Depth Analysis Reveals Trump Will Defeat Clinton in Landslide

Trump Will Defeat Clinton in Landslide

The takeaway from the 2012 election, as it relates to 2016, is that Barack Obama was a ONCE in a lifetime type of candidate. The first African-American candidate. He was young. He was fresh and his candidacy embodied the sort of ‘change’ that so many dissatisfied American’s felt following a long war in Iraq and the financial collapse of the U.S. housing market.

And despite all that popularity, enthusiasm and African-American turnout, he still only attained 51.1% of the popular vote in 2012.

Hillary Clinton stands no chance of besting the numbers of Barack Obama from 2012.  She is far less popular.  She has far less charisma.  She does not inspire enthusiasm, and she comes with a lifetime of corrupt decisions and illegal behavior.

Did Hillary Clinton Lie in Her Interview with Chris Wallace?

Hillary Clinton repeatedly denies a MAJOR part of her original statements regarding the Benghazi attack. In her recent interview with Chris Wallace, she DENIED telling family members that the attack was sparked by an anti-Islam video and that it was not an act of terrorism. Here is a bit of the narrative from the Chris Wallace interview along with the actual words from Hillary Clinton at Andrew’s Air Force Base the day the Benghazi victims were brought home.  The video below is recorded at the actual event at Andrews Air Force Base.



Chris Wallace: One reason people question your account, and this gets to the important question of trust, is because that day at Andrews, you never talked about terrorism. You talked about the video.

Hillary Clinton (comment at AAFB): We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.

Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): No, that’s not – that’s not fair. If you go back and read everything that I said that day, I quoted people who talked about it being terrorism.

Hillary Clinton (comment at AAFB): The President of the Palestinian Authority who worked closely with Chris when he served in Jerusalem, sent me a letter remembering his energy and integrity and deploring and I quote, “an act of ugly terror.”

Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): I had already said it was terrorism. There was no doubt it was terrorism. I think there has been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others. But, look at everything I said. Because, and this goes back to all the investigators that were carried out. There were riots. There were protests. There were efforts to breach our embassies.

Chris Wallace: Yeah, but not in Benghazi. That wasn’t what this was about.

Hillary Clinton (response to Chris Wallace): No, but I’m just telling you, we were looking at the whole world. The whole world was aflame.

My Comment: To be fair and as honest as I can possibly be, I did actually go back, watch the entire event and found that where she claims to have quoted people who talked about it being terrorism, that was actually ONE person. Hillary DID absolutely, without doubt, blame “an awful internet video” and both she and President Obama promised the families that “those responsible” would be brought to justice which was obviously VERY misleading.

As always, I am not asking you to take my word for it. I am presenting the facts and links to where you can review the facts yourself to draw your own conclusion. It is my own personal conclusion that Hillary did and does continually lie when it comes to her comments to the families of those murdered in Benghazi.

Watch this video from 13:00 to 15:00 to hear exactly what she said!

Loving God and Supporting Donald Trump at the Same Time - It is Possible

Recently I found myself in the middle of a Twitter discussion regarding this New York Times video where apparently reporters have covered Donald Trump's rallies for more than a year. They report that Trump supporters at these events often express their views in angry and provocative ways.


First of all, I’d like to point out they did point out they have covered Trump rallies for MORE than a year and then I’d like to point out that this video is 3 minutes 11 seconds long. So you do the math!

Now, in this discussion, KR asked repeatedly how someone who loves God can support someone who supports the “hate” expressed in the video. In return, I reminded her of the “hate” that had been expressed many times over by Trump protesters that went out of their way to go where they had no business going only to cause trouble.

Of course, like many Hillary and Bernie supporters do, she pointed out that examples such as those in the video did not and do not happen at Bernie or Hillary rallies.

Well of course it doesn’t because Trump supporters don’t care to take time out of their schedule, take time off WORK or go out of their way to go hear the same political crap from those two that has been spewed by politicians for decades. Trump supporters go to Trump rallies! They don’t go looking for trouble.

Of course one can talk until they are blue in the face trying to get the Free Lunch Crowd to see WHY the handful of episodes from INSIDE Trump rallies have occurred, but they’ll never get it. More than likely it’s because many of them tend to have an inflated sense of entitlement and think they belong wherever the hell they want to go – even if it is to stir up trouble.

I informed KR that I’ve had SEVERAL friends who have actually attended Trump rallies and they had a VERY different story to tell than the one the New York Times video shows. Remember, that video is 3 minutes and 11 seconds long. Out of HOW many HOURS of rallies?

My friends have all reported the positive, uplifting feeling they got while attending. I am far more inclined to believe the personal experiences of my friends than whatever the media can capture and report.

So back to the question posed by KR – How can anyone who loves God support Donald Trump?
 
My answer is fairly simple – If I were looking to elect a new minister at my church or a new Sunday school teacher, it’s very unlikely that Donald Trump would not be my choice. However, that’s not what we are doing, is it? I support Trump and look forward to him being the next President of the United States!

The absolute most defining factor for me supporting Donald Trump is the very fact that SO many within the DC Establishment, on BOTH sides of the isle despise him. To me, that means he MUST be doing something right and they are doing everything in their power to keep him from upsetting their golden apple cart!

The Liberal Effort to Segregate Society – They Call it Equality

NYC gender ID card
New York City’s Commission on Human Rights has released a document that lists the 31 gender identity and expression types the city officially recognizes. The list is supposed to reinforce the city’s respect and protection of one of the most vulnerable American minority groups.

The document states:
“In New York City, it’s illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and gender expression in the workplace, in public spaces, and in housing,” the new document reads. “The NYC Commission on Human Rights is committed to ensuring that transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers are treated with dignity and respect and without threat of discrimination or harassment.”
The document also provides instruction on business owners and employees on how to respectfully treat all the gender identities and expressions the city officially and legally recognizes.

Identities recognized are:
 
Bi-Gendered
Cross-Dresser
Drag-King
Drag-Queen
Femme Queen
Female-to-Male
FTM
Gender Bender
Genderqueer
Male-To-Female
MTF

This is a GLOWING example of one of the many reasons I am an EX Democrat! I used to buy into their concept of “equality” but thanks to the Kate Steinle case, my eyes were opened and since then I have easily recognized the veiled efforts of the Democrats to segregate society into as many micro-groups as humanly possible.

When people realize the exhausting effort of liberals, to segregate society down into extreme micro-groups and identities in the name of equality, perhaps then we may actually see their real agenda exposed! And then, maybe, just maybe, everyone will see that ALL LIVES DO MATTER!
