Long-Time Friend Unfriends Me Over Trump Support
I put up a reality check on my Facebook page about how Democrat Congressman Earl Blumenauer, was intimidating one of the Democrat’s witnesses who was testifying at the impeachment hearings by calling on Americans to “boycott Provenance properties—including six hotels in downtown Portland—until Sondland testified in a congressional impeachment inquiry.” Sondland said, “We have countless emails, apparently, to my wife Our properties are being picketed and boycotted. As I understand it, [protests] are going on as we speak.”
Was this a less-than-veiled attempt for Gordon Sondland to give testimony at the hearing that would lead to Trump’s impeachment or force him to leave office? Here’s what he tweeted when Sondland testified:
“Resistance” is coup talk. No longer is the Democrat Party the “Loyal Opposition.” It’s in overthrow mode.
I used Democrat Congressman Earl Blumenauer actions as an example of how the Democrats are the intimidators and haters. This was not a singular incident. Nearly every college campus in the United States is a warzone against conservative thought, so much so that these leftist radicals won’t even permit a contrary opinion to be uttered on campus. These people are the real haters.
Leftist protesters … formed a human wall [and] repeatedly pushed away and intimidated people trying to attend a speech by conservative commentator Ann Coulter at the University of California, Berkeley, on Wednesday [11/20/2019] night.
The following is from Campus Reform:
In s new video obtained exclusively by Campus Reform, a protester who was escorted out of the College Republicans’ Ann Coulter event Wednesday evening calls the police offers who removed her “f**king pigs,” after she flipped off Coulter and shouted “You are a f**king nazi, Ann.”
“F**king pig,” the protester shouted while surrounded by police outside the door to the venue where Coulter was speaking.
Here’s what a Democrat member of Congress said in a speech:
“Our democracy teeters on the brink of failure,” Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson said at an event held by the Atlanta NAACP in January of 2019. “Americans elected an authoritarian, racist, anti-immigrant strongman to the nation’s highest office.”
Trump has been declared to be a Nazi numerous times.
Some people in Hollywood want to punch him in the face. Kathy Griffin held up a bloody severed head of Pres. Trump.
Peter Fonda, brother of Jane Fonda, said the following:
We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant a–hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F—.
The Secret Service was called.
Watch this from Robert De Niro
Anyone paying attention to the news knows all of this.
Here’s another example of Democrat ad hominem attacks on Republicans. When they can’t argue facts and substance, they resort to personal attacks: “Rep. Jim Jordan attacked by Ohio newspaper in shocking personal, partisan column.”
After detailing how Democrat Congressman Earl Blumenauer tried to blackmail Gordon Sondland with protests against his wife’s businesses, I commented at the end of my post that anyone who did not support Trump in 2020 should let me know now since there are nearly 1000 people who are looking to be added to my friend roster.
Here’s what my person wrote:
Sorry, Gary, count me gone. Very sad that a 60-year friendship is lost over Trump. To be honest tho, it broke my heart when you declared Republicans were at war with Democrats. Our dads and [others] won a war against attack by a foreign power. Our war is against poverty, ignorance, bigotry, cancer, racism and all other forms of inequality and most importantly, hatred. Ill I’ll continue to pray for you and our president and our country.
I’m not sure that I understand all of what this person wrote, especially about my father and her father serving in World War II. They didn’t fight for some of the outrageous policies being forced upon us by the Democrat Party.
It’s the Democrats that are at war with the Republicans and the rest of America. Three years of an unofficial coup against Pres. Trump is a sure indication of it. Here are some comments by Victor David Hanson:
For most of the last three years, Donald Trump’s critics have scoffed at supposed “conspiracy theories” that claimed a “deep state” of bureaucrats were aborting the Trump presidency. We have been told the word “coup” is hyperbole that reveals the paranoid minds of Trump supporters.
Yet oddly, many people brag that they are proud members of a deep state and occasionally boast about the idea of a coup.
Recently, former acting CIA chief John McLaughlin proclaimed in a public forum, “Thank God for the deep state.” Former CIA Director John Brennan agreed and praised the “deep state people” for their opposition to Trump.
My friend wrote that “Our war is against poverty, ignorance, bigotry, cancer, racism and all other forms of inequality and most importantly, hatred. Ill I’ll continue to pray for you and our president and our country.”
The war on poverty has been a failure. Poverty statistics were going down when Pres. Johnson’s War on Poverty was implemented. It created a permanent poverty class. My friend seems to think that the government is the solution to some of the above problems. In fact, the government (both parties are guilty) has made some of these problems worse. The race card is played for almost any infraction. Trump’s policies have lowered black unemployment that even CNN Had to recognize:
Black unemployment fell to a record low in August , helped by a jump in the number of black women on the job. The unemployment rate for black workers fell to 5.5% from 6%, according to the Labor Department data. The previous record low of 5.9% was set in May 2018.
The unemployment rate for black women fell to a record 4.4% from 5.2% in July. The unemployment rate for black men crept up to 5.9% from 5.8%. But the previous month’s rate was a record, so the rate is still near its historic low.
Unemployment among workers who identify themselves as Hispanic or Latino also fell in August to 4.2%, which matched a record low set earlier this year.
This happened because of economic and taxing policies that affected everyone. It didn’t happen because of more social welfare programs.
Governments can’t fix inequality; they can only make it worse by making everyone equally poor. The Democrats’ move toward socialism proves the point.
What about “hatred”? Which political party is spewing hate? It’s the Democrats.
What political party supports abortion up until a baby is born and even beyond? The Democrats. What Party has redefined marriage? The Democrats. What party has pushed the irrational transgender worldview on all of us? Story hours with drag queens? Democrats. Men pretending to be women in women’s sports and girls’ locker rooms? Democrats. High taxes? Democrats. Wanting to tax churches that address politics, something black churches have done for decades? Democrats.
WHAT I SENT TO A REPORTER AT THE ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION ABOUT TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS
The Democrat Party’s absurd laws keep on trucking:
All New Jersey law enforcement officers now must conform to the state’s new transgender guidelines, which compel officers — among other things — to conduct body searches based on a person’s gender identity “regardless of the gender that individual was assigned at birth and/or their anatomical characteristics,” the Burlington County Times reported. (The Blaze)
If anything should dissuade anyone from letting the Democrats get back in power in 2020 it’s this charade of an impeachment hearing that is an extension of every other failed attempt to overturn an election that the Democrats lost in 2016.
My friend David Bahnsen has written Elizabeth Warren: How Her Presidency Would Destroy the Middle Class and the American Dream due out February 11, 2020: “Elizabeth Warren is a progressive radical explicitly running on the most anti-American concepts and policies any candidate has ever run on—and may very well be the next President of the United States.”
If you want to see the stock market and the economy tank, vote for a Democrat in 2020 and you’ll see class warfare like you’ve never seen before. A cure for cancer? We’ll be lucky if people with cancer will even be treated since “Medicare For All” means rationing for everyone. As my friend (a cancer survivor) and I turn 70 next year, don’t be surprised if we are excluded from medical treatment in the near future.
