A Policeman Shows He Is a True Peace Officer

Published

More Andy Griffith, less Rambo. Kudos to Officer Gaetano Acerra of Sumter, SC… well done.
From Officer.com:

A Sumter, S.C. police officer recently went above and beyond the call of duty for a 13-year-old boy.

Last month, Cameron Simmons called police because he was upset after fighting with his mother and didn’t want to live in the house with his family, according to WIS-TV.

Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to the call and tried to talk to him.

“I said, ‘You have it good, you have a roof over your head,’ ” Acerra told the news station. “I told him I would try to help him out, and here we are now.”

The officer brought him home, but soon realized some of the boy’s hardships. Simmons didn’t have a real bed or furniture for his bedroom.

“My heart went out for him. I thought the little things that he needed I could give him; to make him a happier kid.”

A few weeks after the call, the officer showed up at Simmons’ home with a truck-full of gifts including a bed, TV, desk, chair and a Wii game system that someone donated after hearing the boy’s story.

Simmons, who was sleeping on an inflatable mattress, told Acerra that because of the new bed his back won’t hurt anymore and was grateful for the gifts.

Capping it off, I love it that the story only came out because someone saw a picture posted to the officer’s brother’s Facebook page–it wasn’t done to be noticed.
We need many more like Acerra, AND… many more of US need to be like this officer.

Infamous California Congresswoman Calls Trump ‘Incompetent Idiot’

This is not the time, Congresswoman.

Published

on

In these trying times – an era of global crisis – those who despise President Trump have ceaselessly lambasted him with anything and everything that they can muster.

The “resistance” is still in full effect during the COVID-19 global pandemic, with many of the usual suspects taking time out of there day to distract from the task at hand, in favor of scoring political points during an election year.

That’s not to say a President can’t be criticized or questioned during a time of crisis, but these heavy times require sharp critiques, not pedantic pageantry.

Maxine Waters hasn’t quite grasped this concept as of yet.

 

Waters has been an unrepentant critic of President Trump, and has even gone so far as to demand that her constituents seek out conservatives in public and make them feel “unwelcome”.

Lindsey Graham Says Pelosi Made The ‘Most Shameful, Disgusting Statement By Any Politician In Modern History’

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the “most shameful, disgusting statement by any politician in modern history,” Senator Lindsey Graham said today.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, criticized Pelosi after she railed against President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pelosi said: “His denial at the beginning was deadly,” and as he “fiddles, people are dying” during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts held up the relief bill, and she wants to accuse President Trump?

John Kerry Profanely Curses Lone Congressman Who Voted ‘No’ on Virus Relief

President chimed in as well, calling the publicity stunt the work of a “third rate grandstander”.

Published

on

First, the good news is that the federal government has passed an enormous, $2 trillion economic relief package aimed at helping Americans survive the coming economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.  The bad news is that one of our elected officials exploited the legislative process to make a political point.

Here’s how it went down:

The House initially planned to pass the coronavirus stimulus package by unanimous consent or voice vote with a skeleton crew of legislators present in order to minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus among its members. The body, under its rules, can pass legislation by unanimous consent – with no representative in the chamber objecting – or a voice vote — an exercise in which those for and against a bill yell yea or nay, and the loudest side wins.

But either method can be shut down by a “point of order” from a member who could argue a lack of quorum, meaning less than half of the House’s total members are present in the chamber. At that point, it would need at least 216 total members present to hold a recorded vote.

Massie has indicated to House leaders, despite significant efforts from Republican leadership, that he may force a recorded vote by suggesting the lack of quorum. House leadership is also concerned a handful of other members –Republicans and Democrats – might be considering taking the same action.

That threat forced several elected officials to travel back to DC in order to vote – an unnecessary risk to health and resources.

President Trump was quite unhappy with the move.

Then came John Kerry, former Secretary of State, to pile some additional shame on Massie.

“Breaking news: Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an a–hole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity,” Kerry tweeted. “He’s given new meaning to the term #M-sshole.”

Kerry added: “Finally, something the president and I can agree on!”

The Commander in Chief acknowledged Kerry’s take.

We should allow this brief bit of profane bipartisanship to guide us in these troubled times, because if John Kerry and Donald Trump can agree on something, then Americans can come together to defeat this dastardly COVID-19.

Trump Approval Rating Takes Unexpected Turn in Nation Crippled by Coronavirus

BOOM!

Published

on

One would think that we cooped up Americans, stressed as ever as to how long we’ll be confined to our “social distancing”, might be angry at the world.  But we’re not.

Some of this ironically hopeful sentiment comes from knowing that, when the chips are down, US citizens unite.  Instead of bickering and dividing, a great many of us shove the national electorate into a grandiose, higher life-form.  We’re no longer Americans but, instead, we are America herself.

And, despite what you may see on the evening news, or on the surface of the mainstream media, this cohesive unit is rooting for President Trump’s success with everything that we’ve got.

So far, we like what we’re seeing.

President Trump’s job approval numbers are surging to the best figures of his 3.5 year-old presidency.

According to the RealClearPoltiics poll of polls, Trump’s approval rating sits at a very healthy 47 percent, beating his previous record of 46 percent by a full point.

What’s more, Trump’s disapproval rating dipped to 49.5 percent, his best showing since February of 2017, the month after he assumed the presidency. In fact, this is the first time his disapproval rating has been below 50 percent since February of 2017.

Here’s some context…

Ten days ago, Trump’s average approval rating was three points lower at 44 percent, while his disapproval rating was 3.5 points higher at 53 percent.

In just a little over a week, Trump’s numbers have improved by a net 6.5 points.

You see, he’s not my President when times are well and angst is all that the left has.  But when we’re backed into a corner, all of that partisan lip flapping goes right out the window.

Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter Tweets Support of Neighbor Who Assaulted Rand Paul

This was simply incorrigible.

Published

on

So much for Americans sticking together in this time of need.

While teamwork may be the name of the game for many during the COVID-19 crisis, there are some rather apparent gaps in that thinking – particularly in the realm of American politics.  Of course, some of the issue seems to stem from the “resistance” and their undying devotion to disrespecting The Donald.

But there are other targets out there as well, including Senator Rand Paul who recently tested positive for the deadly virus.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Christine took an ugly cheap shot at Paul on Twitter this week.

Christine Pelosi, a political strategist and daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is under fire over a tweet that appears to endorse the 2017 assault of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., after the lawmaker revealed he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Paul’s announcement this past Sunday that he had contracted the virus led some other GOP lawmakers to self-quarantine, including Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.

Washington Post congressional reporter Paul Kane echoed Romney’s concerns about contracting the virus because of his wife, Ann Romney, who has multiple sclerosis.

“He told us the other day his biggest personal concern was not getting this because his wife has MS. Now he can’t see her for almost 2 weeks,” Kane tweeted.

“Rand Paul’s neighbor was right,” Christine Pelosi reacted Sunday evening.

Paul was tested for the coronavirus before he showed any symptoms, which is rare, due to the fact that part of his lung had been removed after he was brutally beaten by his neighbor, placing the Kentucky Senator in an “at-risk” population with preexisting conditions.

Hillary Clinton Accused of Absurd and Pedantic Plagiarism of Fellow Liberal

For many voters, both Democrat and Republican alike, the real joke is that Hillary Clinton has remained relevant all these years. 

Published

on

Hillary Clinton doesn’t need much help in being envisioned as some sort of villain; she plays the part extremely well all on her own.

Clinton has cultivated quite the reputation for herself over the course of the last few decades.  She’s ruthless, cold, calculating, and omnipresent within the Democratic ranks.  She drives the liberal narrative by tweet and speech, while assuming no political risk herself thanks to her independent wealth.

In 2020, Hillary has heaved herself into the fracas on the regular, lobbing shots at both President Trump and Vermont Senator Bernies Sanders…much to the ire of the Democratic voters.

Now, as if Clinton wasn’t already loathed enough, she’s apparently stealing jokes from comedians.

On Monday, the two-time presidential whiffer tweeted, “Please do not take medical advice from a man who looked directly at a solar eclipse.”

The joke obviously refers to Donald Trump and that fake news moment of 2017 when the corrupt media claimed the president looked directly into the sun during an eclipse.

Even the far-left Boston Globe was forced to concede that “videos showed that Trump wasn’t as cavalier as the still images made it seem: He looked up for a brief moment with his naked eyes beforehand in what appeared to be a joking manner before putting on his glasses.”

But here’s where it gets weird.

Anyway, regardless of the truth, a meme was born, which Bill Maher took advantage of a couple weeks ago, with this joke….

“Trump said he had a hunch that the virus wasn’t as bad as the World Health Organization says,” Maher tweeted on March 7. “So on the one side, you have the World Health Organization. On the other side, you have a guy who stared at an eclipse.”

For many voters, both Democrat and Republican alike, the real joke is that Hillary Clinton has remained relevant all these years.

Quarantined Senators May Show Up In Hazmat-Like Protective Gear To Vote

Published

on

Quarantined senators may show up in hazmat suits to vote.

There is talk that if push comes to shove the GOP senators who are quarantined may show up in the Senate to vote while wearing hazmat-like protective gear.

American Mirror:

Despite vows not to vote for any package from the White House, notwithstanding House Speaker Nancy “Nanking” Pelosi (D-CA) writing a bill of her own, although media attacks persisted on the GOP legislation, it looks like today the Senate will vote for the nearly $2 trillion Trump relief package and send it to the president for his signature.

“Nanking”? Well, if the Democrats are going to do the bidding of the Chinese Propaganda Ministry their public labels ought to reek of it.

Shanghai Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and the Democrats have given way on more than several budget proposals they tried to include in the bill that had nothing to do with the virus.

So far the GOP only had to agree to an oversight mechanism for a business fund that will be used by the Federal Reserve to pump more than $4 trillion back into the economy.

DC GOP insiders say that oversight was intentionally left out of the plan by the president, knowing the Democrats would balk, so that he could look like he was compromising on something he had already planned on doing.

It’s the old political trick of asking for the stars so you can get the moon.

There is also word that if push comes to shove the GOP senators who are quarantined may show up in the Senate to vote while wearing hazmat-like protective gear. More

I am very glad that we have a great leader like President Trump in charge during this time of crisis. According to reports from the Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg News, the federal stockpile of N95 respirator masks was depleted under the Obama administration but never replenished, despite two separate recommendations to do so.

Republicans must do whatever necessary to stand firm against all of the unrelated pork Nancy Pelosi tried to push into the bill. With November coming, both parties are being watched closely.
