President Trump Did What Ross Perot Could Not

When I watch the news and read statements and opinions written by non-left politicians and pundits, I can’t help but notice a number of disagreements, contentious disputes, and quarrels that at times, end up with name-calling and pejorative epithets. Under normal circumstances, lively debate would be a sign of a healthy political system that has incorporated the idea of divided government and checks and balances as a practical remedy against dictatorship, totalitarianism, and similar forms of oppression against the common people. But these days, the political situation is far from being normal as our great republic and its bedrock of time-proven principles are attacked by a well-organized syndicate

Thank you for posting, OP. Special thanks to Mark Andrew Dwyer for expressing the thoughts of so many Trump supporters so well. FTA: “One of Trump’s remarkable virtues has been making his (and our) adversaries show their true colors. Without his direct tweets and bold approach that can lack political correctness and a sugar coat, we would have no idea that many of our “conservative allies” were actually corrupt, or self-centered, or weak, or cowardly, or outright sellouts, or neo-conservatives, or on the leash of enemies of our republic…or all of the above….. As a result of Trump’s rare talent to make our adversaries unmask themselves, we now know who really wants to preserve America as it has been described in the Constitution, and build on the solid foundations expressed in the Declaration of Independence, and who does not.” We know everything we need to know (and more!) about Trump - warts and all! We know what he was able to do to Make America Great Again despite the deceitfully contrived & vicious attacks. We don’t know anyone else so we’ll. We cannot rely on the hope that help to save our constitutional republic might come from the same GOP establishment types who promised what Trump actually delivered, or from anyone who aligns themselves with them. They dashed our hopes repeatedly. Surely they could have used their power to accomplish what Trump did. Ask yourself why they didn’t, and why do they despise Trump & befriend & aid his attackers? When someone shows you who they are by this kind of behavior, believe them!

Perot gave us The Clintons - twice ! Imagine how much better this country would be if those clowns had been kicked off the national stage in 1992. Dole would have succeeded Bush in 1996 and we wouldn’t be at each other’s throats as we are now thanks to the divisiveness the Clintons stirred up.

#5 is dead on! H. Ross Perot gained a whopping 19% of the popular vote in 1992 when it was only expected to be about 10% tops, and that gave BJ Clinton a PLURALITY f the vote as neither Clintoon, Bush or Perot got 50%. Poppy Bush was a one-termer mostly because he flat out lied to the American People-- "Read My lips, no new taxes" and he cut a 'deal' to go into more debt with the promise that some of the debt money would be spent to 'lower the deficit". RFJ, Jr. has that kind of 'common sense' appeal, but some of the policies he supports are somewhat "off center". One thing is for certain SURE, and that is the party his father was involved in during the 1968 campaign no longer exists-- it been replaced with wackos, socialists, and perverts.

Have you ever considered that perhaps God was trying to show WTP the depth of corruption then, that so many have come to realize today because Trump was used to reveal it. There were people in power who knew things about our government that were still hidden from US at that point. We were still trusting those in power to do what was needed to be done to protect & preserve our republic. We know differently now. It still remains to be seen whether we will do anything more to correct it now, than we did back then.

Perot's biggest mistake was in putting his presidential run on the shelf for two weeks to take care of his daughter's romantic and wedding problems. Not a smooth move and it cost him. Running the government like a business was the best idea going at the time.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the all-volunteer force, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin traveled to Fort Meade, Maryland by Black Hawk helicopter on Wednesday to administer the military oath of office to 85 brave young men and women. 67 of these new recruits shipped out to basic training just hours after the ceremony, leaving for bases all across the country, including Parris Island, South Carolina and Fort Moore, Georgia.

Asylum seekers that show up at the border without having secured an appointment are subject to a 'common-sense condition' and will likely will be turned away.

Video posted of Hunter Biden while watching the Fourth of July fireworks show from the Truman Balcony at the White House Tuesday night has people wondering if the First Son had a case of the sniffles–or something else– in the wake of the Secret Service discovering cocaine in the White House West Wing on Sunday while the Biden family was away at Camp David.

Former President Donald Trump said the security tapes would “quickly” reveal who smuggled cocaine into President Joe Biden’s White House after the drug was reportedly found in the West Wing. Over the weekend, a substance was found inside the White House that reportedly tested positive for cocaine.On Monday, U.S. Secret Service spokesman Steven Kopek confirmed an “ongoing investigation” into the matter, but did not confirm whether the substance contained cocaine. In response, Trump predicted the “Fake News Media” will downplay the substance’s finding.

President Joe Biden laughed and again ignored questions about the cocaine found at the White House - as the administration tried to distance the first family and staff from the shocking discovery by suggesting it was a visitor. Biden sat and watched reporters as they tried and failed to get his response to the drug scandal while he was in the Oval Office with Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson on Wednesday. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre implied in her daily briefing that a member of the public left the Schedule A substance in a 'heavily-traveled area' of the West Wing -

Furious ice cream fans are promising to boycott the iconic Ben & Jerry's brand, accusing the company of 'going woke' following a July 4th tweet in which it said that it was 'committed' to returning 'stolen' lands to indigenous peoples.

US health officials were criticized today for advocating that trans women can breastfeed — without highlighting the health risks to the baby. Several information pages on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website appear to endorse 'chestfeeding' — a term used to describe feeding an infant milk directly from the breast by trans and non-binary parents. One section, titled 'Health Equity Considerations', claims 'an individual does not need to have given birth to breastfeed or chestfeed.'

Depending on your point of view, the Supreme Court’s Friday decision in 303 Creative v. Elenis was either a great moment in American jurisprudence or a day that will live in infamy. There are accusations floating around the MSM that a piece of evidence referenced by each side was falsified. Alongside that story, there are whispers of attorneys being disbarred over the matter. That didn’t take long, did it? But even before that, leftists were quick to stand up in outrage and state that the ruling gave them the right to refuse service to conservatives, notably Trump supporters.

In particular, Rutgers University researchers say, gun ownership is something many Americans decline to reveal when questioned by people they don't know. That's especially true of women and minorities newly among the ranks of gun owners amidst the chaos of recent years. Academics are unhappy that privacy-minded respondents impair their understanding of the world we live in, but such evasion is an inevitable consequence of decades of fiery debate and punitive gun policies.

Shouldn't it be a huge national story that a big city like LA has had a record stretch where it didn't hit 80 degrees in 60 days in May and June? After all, the media always warns us that the earth is getting dangerously warmer? We are told constantly that there are too many people, and that causes warming, so isn’t it amazing that the population of LA County in 1880 was around 33,000 and today it is over 10 million? How is it possible that the population is 300 times higher, yet the temperature is lower than at any time in 145 years.

It's still not clear how cocaine made its way into the White House, but new reporting indicates it was found in a dime-sized bag in a storage facility regularly used by staff and guests. U.S. Secret Service declined to comment on the ongoing investigation to on Wednesday, but doubled-down that the white powder substance was found in a 'work area within the West Wing' of the White House. It appears the federal law enforcement agency is still on the hunt for who brought the cocaine into the White House – while Republican lawmakers and conservative trolls immediately suggested that Biden's addict son Hunter, 52, was the source.
