In a almost unanimous voice Congress passed a bipartisan bill called the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. Wednesday President Trump signed it.
Trump’s signing of the act comes just days after pro-democracy candidates in Hong Kong won 269 out of 452 seats in 18 district council races, while pro-Beijing forces, who previously held 73 percent of the seats, won only 30. Voters came out in droves with a 71 percent turnout — up from 47 percent four years ago in the same elections, according to the Electoral Affairs Commission.
When Obama was inaugurated on January 20, 2009, the National Debt was: $10,626,877,048,913.08. When Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017, the national debt was $19.9 trillion, according to U.S. Treasury data. Here’s your obama’s legacy. Be grateful that Trump didn’t ride obama’s “coat tails.” Obama takes office 2009: National debt: $10.6 trillion.. leaves office: $20 trillion Debt per person: $31,000 $61,340 Labor force participation 65.8% 62.8% Home ownership: 67.3% 63.5% Real median household income: $57,744 $54,045 Avg. Health Ins rate family plan: $12,680 $18,142 Food stamp dependents: 32 million 43.6 million Tax to benefits ratio: <40% >60% Persons living in poverty: 38 million 45 million Sources: U.S. Treasury, U.S. Labor Statistics, U.S. Dept.of Agriculture, U.S. Congressional Budget Office
With all this Obama is trying to take credit for the Presidents turnaround of the economy. The Labor force participation rate is at 63.3 as of last month Oct. 2019. While the Democratic party still has many months to go before the 2020 vote I don’t see anyone that would not make our Country better. On the contrary, many if not all would make it even worst than President Obama did.
So do your own research and come to your own conclusions and vote in 2020. Your future could be riding on it.
Every life lost due to a shooting, any shooting is tragic. But why go after the right to defend yourself. Why is the left so intent on taking away the vast majority of law abiding citizens 2A rights? There are many many more deaths that are commited each year than those by guns. Drug overdose, medical malpractice, car accidents to name a few. I won’t even get into abortion. But why is the gun violence so more front and center and so much more publicity by the MSM and our Democratic and sadly some Republican law makers? Well if you were to listen to the People running for President on the Dem side you would know. Its a inch by inch regulation by regulation chip by chip infringement of yours and mine 2A Freedom. Until it gets to the point that they say you know what you don’t need a gun anymore you need to turn them in.
Islam is a inherently violent and intolerant totalitarian theocratic ideology. There has never been a free Islamic society and flooding the West with them threatens our liberty. Only one culture has the capacity to be free, one with Christian faith, morality, reason, a commitment to liberty and economic self sufficiency,and individuals who can take the responsibility to govern their own lives. Diversity is an excuse to engage in cultural genocide against Western Civilization and to replace people with traditional values that ensure liberty with people who can be enslaved to tyranny through demographic engineering by unscrupulous global elites.
This Congress is the most treasonous in American history hiding behind corruption, PC lies & legal abuses. A diversity of progressive, extremist and many damaging ideologies emerge, promoted, expanded & rooted to stay & deepen in our already deeply corrupted systems. Socialism, communism, terrorism, anarchism, activism & globalism ideologies converge in one party. Their utmost agenda is to deny democracy & target American’s wealth, destroy laws & orders through systematic abuses in total obscurity. There will never be any precedence for as long as dishonest media, abusive judges, corrupted politicians & agents leaders are still colluded & corrupted to plot & frame their rivals while intentionally lied & ignored and violated protocols by hundreds, still unpunished or even appraised to sell books. It was the same case for SC nominations and no legal actions were taken against smears attacks or orchestrated political lies.
A comment I found on Fox News. Thought it captured things pretty well.
What is the reason the Democrats are putting forth so many that are so far left, they are called socialists? The only one running that seems even remotely moderate is Tulsi Gabbard. Do they seriously think the American people would vote for a Socialist?
Now I know there are millions of young men and women that have little to no knowledge as to what socialism is and how its effects have killed over a hundred million people in the last century. But with all the coverage over the candidates running for President of our country. You would think the majority of them would do a little due diligence and read up on what something is about before voting for someone that will change our whole way of life.
Socialism has not worked in any country at any time in the history of the world. I am not talking about a small group or a family structure. I am talking about on a country or nation level. Every country that has tried it has failed or has had to transition to a capitalist system of some kind.
It all comes down to human nature. In a system that gives people the basic needs, it robs them of the desire to be productive. Then you have the leaders that reap all the perks and they become greedy and want more. It draws the type of people that prey on others for their own power and benefit. Once in power they almost never want to give it up.
It seems that in a nation of 350 million people, we somehow only find the most self centered people to run for office. They may start out saying that they are working for the people and whats best for the country, but soon it becomes clear that they are only in it for themselves. How is it that they can go into office firmly in the middle class and come out as multi millionaires.
Barack Obama’s IRS may have targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny, but Obama never pledged to strip tax-exempt status from organizations that disagreed with his position on an issue.
Yet on Thursday, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said he would strip tax-exempt status from any religious organization that supports traditional marriage, defined as one man and one woman. In fact, his position essentially amounts to a government preference for pro-gay marriage religious bodies that likely violates the Establishment Clause.
President Trump held a rally Minneapolis last night and again it was a sold out event. I went and looked for the headlines at all the MSM sites and it seems only Fox was covering it. As I thought about it they have not given President Trump any good coverage sense he took office. Congress has not supported him, the main street media has not supported him. But still he has achieved many good things for the people and the country. The Deep State seems determined to get him out of office by any means possible up to and including lying to the American People. Twishing things he says and does to impeach him on.
The Democrats have another whistle blower. Someone else has supposedly come forward to say they were in the room and have first hand knowledge of what happened. I don’t know what they think they heard but the President has release the transcripts of the call. The President of Ukraine has come out and said that nothing like what they are saying, happened. He felt no pressure to do anything, from the President. So if you don’t like the President and don’t believe that he is leading the country the way you think he should. You can turn whistle blower and smear him.
There are people that don’t want the President to succeed. The Democrats have been trying to get him out of office sense the election. But they are not the only ones. There are many groups along with most of the media that are if not making up stories are not reporting all the things he is doing right and good for the country.
I didn’t vote for President Obama and I don’t think he was good for the country. But I stood up and cheered when they took out Osama bin Laden. I also grudgingly always admitted he was my President.
From the media to the Congress and the average citizens that constantly attack the President of the United States of America. What has he done that is impeachable? I don’t want to hear about how you feel about him. Legally what has he done? Has he done anything that any other president has done?
The latest outrage from the left is this conversation with the Ukraine President. They want to run him out of office over third party hearsay. This was before the transcript was released or they even saw the whistle blowers statement. President Trump did release the transcript and they did release the statement from the CIA lesion to the White House. What we learned from the documents is that there is nothing wrong with what the President did. NOTHING!
