Democrats Put USA in Danger

Democrats and their allies are putting the United States of America in serious danger. Their tactics of delay, demagoguery, and disruption of the function of the Executive Branch of our federal government put the American people on the front line as targets for harm and maybe even death. No one knows what the delay in closing immigration and travel from seven of the world’s worst hotbeds of Islamic radical terrorism to this country has done. One can only imagine the clerics of ISIS who preach jihad have smiles from ear to ear about how stupid Democrats are. As of now, the immigration flood gates are open. It is the height of naivete to believe that will not be fully exploited. Maybe it will take another domestic catastrophe to fully awaken the public and put a stop to the insanity. Homeland Security Secretary Kelly said we will not know anything is wrong until it “just goes BOOM”.

The law is crystal clear. The President of the United States has the power to stop immigration from anywhere and for any reason. The law is as follows: “Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, [the president] may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate,” reads the relevant statute.

Yet we have a Washington state federal court judge who has decided he knows best. He has blocked the President’s executive order to stop immigration temporarily from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Surely the President knows more about the risks of doing nothing over that of a single Federal judge, Judge James Robart.

Then we have the District Court of Appeals in California. That court has had more reversals than any in the country when decisions have been pushed up to the Supreme Court. And all of this plays out on the west coast of the country in states that voted for Hillary Clinton for President and have such as Congressional representation as  Representative Maxine Waters (D) who thinks Russia is about to invade Korea and Representative Nancy Polosi (D) who thinks President Bush still holds office. Senile?

The antics of Democrats in the US Senate are not just political theater. They are acts of delay and subterfuge bordering on treasonous. The United States of America needs a full Presidential cabinet to properly function. Donald J. Trump as the Republican nominee won the office of the Presidency. The majority of both houses of Congress are held by Republicans as are the majority of governorships and legislative bodies of the 50 states. The voters have chosen. It is past time for Democrats to cease the delays… delays…. DELAYS. The acts of even not showing up for hearings or votes tell the tale of a Party that deserves to be ostracized and shunned. This goes for paid “protesters” and perpetrators of fake news: many of the main stream media.

There was a recent meeting of Democrat large donors and supporters in Florida sponsored by David Brock, the founder of Media Matters. They are determined to undermine the Trump administration with everything they have. This includes an army of paid agitators, legislative tactics, lawsuits to tie up courts, even impeachment of President Trump, and on and on. The people cannot let this happen. We must fight back by exposing all of this to the light of day. This exposure includes actions of many in the mass media who have become propagandists rather than journalists. The goal is to hurt President Trump in any way possible. It makes no difference if the American people are put in danger. The Democrat Party and its allies are willing to gamble with your life. The president is not.

In Indiana, we have one Democrat US Senator, Joe Donnelly, and one Republican, Todd Young . In the House of Representatives, Indiana has 9 representatives of which only 2 are Democrats, Andre Carson and Peter Visclosky. The Senate is the hold up in getting the administration staffed with a full Presidential cabinet. Donnelly voted against Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, against Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General and against Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.

Carson and Visclosky are not vulnerable, but Senator Joe Donnelly is. His Senatorial seat is up for election in November 2018. The State of Indiana voters went heavily for President Donald Trump, elected Senator Todd Young (R) over former Senator Evan Bayh (D) who the voters saw through completely, and elected 7 Republican Representatives verses 2 Democrats. The two Democrats represent a part of inner city Indianapolis and the district closest to Chicago in Northwest Indiana. No surprise.

It is time for Indiana’s one Democrat senator to remove himself completely from the “Hate Trump Train” and get on the “American Train”. It is time for Democrats to accept the results of an election and stop the objections and Kabuki theater. The president and the country deserve a full, functional cabinet.  Donnelly needs to show up and vote “yes” for cabinet nominees. If he does not, the voters should remember come 2018.

In the meanwhile….we pray for the best.
