Donald Trump is our only hope

I told you last week that President Trump had turned a corner with his State of the Union address. He is in full campaign mode, and no one is better on the campaign trail than Donald Trump. But the liberals are handing him ammunition. The Green New Deal is a dream come true for Trump. That's why it's so important in this moment of American history that we have someone like Trump in the White House. He is the clear delineation between capitalism and socialism.

This is where the Democrats have been heading for a long time. It could be argued that this is where they've been for a long time. Tip O'Neill didn't start the slide to socialism for the Democrats, but he's emblematic of the bridge between the likes of Sam Rayburn and Nancy Pelosi. When my father was a Democrat in Congress in the '80s, people like Pelosi and Barney Frank were considered the left fringe of the party. Now they're the middle of the road of the Democrat Party. They're also being edged out by the more radical voices of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris.

Some are frightened of these radical new voices, and well they should be, but these voices also offer a clear contrast to capitalism in this country. Trump is capitalism personified. He loves this country. He knows what made it great. He's an American success story. Had we even had someone as business-minded as Mitt Romney as president we wouldn't have this clear distinction. Romney tends to be mushy on the important issues like illegal immigration and global warming. He would surely be compromising with the likes of AOC.

Trump understands his role in history. He is the bulwark against a total transformation of this country from capitalism that made it great to socialism that has failed wherever it's been tried. That is the litmus test. Ask any proponent of AOC and socialism to cite any example--past or present--where socialism has worked. They can't. The irony of all of this is they cry for taxing the 'tippy top' at 70 percent while Venezuela, which did exactly that, crumbles before our eyes.

Speaking of irony, Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced her candidacy for president and scolded the Republicans about the dangers of global warming in the midst of a blizzard. Of course, the people who spent decades telling us the earth was going to burn are now telling us the frigid weather is climate change. These are the same people who point to floods as climate change but were just telling us we were running out of water.

Any other Republican president would be buckling to the pressure from the radical global warming crowd. Not Trump. He made fun of Klobuchar's announcement, and well he should. The liberals are fond of saying, "Speak truth to power." Trump is speaking truth to liars. This Green New Deal would be a disaster for America. It would cut off the lifeblood of capitalism which is affordable energy. It would reward people who don't work. It would cost the taxpayers trillions they don't have.

Global warming like Occupy Wall Street and myriad other left-wing causes are merely vehicles to destroy capitalism and give rise to socialism. Socialism is complete government control. If you don't know what that looks like remember this. The Nazis were socialists. Like I said, socialism has been tried many times before and failed.


Trump is now above 50 percent in approval. He is what stands between us and another Venezuela. Our only hope is that he prevails.

The race to Venezuela is on
There's this guy named Andrew Yang. You've probably never heard of him. The San Francisco Chronicle is singing his praises. Why? Because he's running for president and he's promising a 'freedom dividend' to every adult American. What's a freedom dividend? It's $1,000 a month just for being alive. How does he expect to pay for this? Oh, he has no...

The America-haters
Trump Derangement Syndrome is now epidemic. We all remember when it started. It started the day Donald Trump came down that escalator at Trump Tower. It grew as his popularity did, hitting a fever pitch on Election Night 2016. Most people thought it would subside once the election was over. I knew better.TDS grows with every success of President...

The moral rot of the left is now undeniable
If you want to know how deep the moral rot is on the left in America you need look no further than the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act. The bill would do just what its name says. It protects babies that are born alive during a botched abortion and gives them the same consideration of life that any other human being is given. But all but three ...

The purposeful deception of the mainstream media
I saw a headline from PJMedia.com this week. Actually, it was a question. 'Why Does the MSM Keep Falling for Obvious Hoaxes?' It was in reference to the Jussie Smollett hoax that he was the victim of a hate crime. Smollett is one of the stars on the Fox hit Empire. To answer the question of the headline we must first look at how many hoaxes the ...

Americans now have a clear choice: Socialism or capitalism
Try as she did, Speaker Nancy Pelosi could not keep President Trump away from the American people. She knew if she allowed him to address the nation from the House chamber during the shutdown it would be game over. She may have just delayed the game, but the outcome was inevitable. Trump was going to connect with the American people one way or a...

Dems see their opportunity for socialism
The left's hatred of Donald Trump has emboldened them to do something that several years ago was unthinkable. They have now mainstreamed socialism in the Democrat Party. Of course, there have always been socialists in the party. Bernie Sanders has made no secret of his socialism, but there was little chance he was going to get the nomination for...

Pulling back the curtain on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
OK, we've had our fun with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It's time to stop pretending that she's relevant. Or even serious. Sure, she took the left-wing media by storm when she unseated the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus. That was quite a feat. Joe Crowley had been there for 20 years and had climbed the ranks of power, but his defeat was a ...

The coup attempt on Trump
OK, so now Donald Trump is a Russian agent? You'd think so by the mainstream media coverage. The New York Times ran a story that the FBI was investigating Trump right after his firing of James Comey for wittingly or unwittingly being a secret agent for the Russians. It was ridiculous on its face, but given the timing and who was involved it make...

The Chicken Littles of the government shutdown
What if they had a government shutdown and nobody noticed? If you're one of the few Americans who has actually had to go without pay, I apologize. My point is the doom and gloom and Armageddon of a partial government shutdown foretold by the Democrats never materialized. It was similar to the apocalyptic predictions of tax cuts. Instead, the eco...
