In 2013 Trump defended Bob Woodward His words may prove to be correct

The last time Bob Woodward wrote a book about a United States President, the Obama administration attacked its validity. They defended decisions by President Obama regarding his handling of the war in Afghanistan.

Even Osama bin Laden made a video encouraging Americans to read the book. When a leftist reporter is willing to go after Obama and a terrorist leader is willing to recommend the book, you know it’s pretty bad.

Donald Trump didn’t like the way the administration was responding to the book, so he Tweeted his perspective.

As it turned out, Obama did get away with attacking Bob Woodward. Not much came from the book nor the administration’s reaction to it. Now that he has a book about him, the attacks he once condemned are now the centerpiece of his staff’s strategy. They are going after the writer, the book, those quoted in it, and anything else associated with it.

If it’s as bad as most people believe it is, then the President’s old Tweet may come to pass. Obama may really be the only one who could get away with attacking Bob Woodward. His administration likely won’t get away with their own attacks unscathed.

Mark Levin on conservatives and tyranny

There are times when I really hate government. It’s not that I’m an anarchist or I believe there should be no laws or rules, but in recent years it seems as if government is the root cause for many of our problems. This is why it perplexes me so that people willingly ask the government to intervene in their affairs. For leftists, this is understandable as they are entitled to have the government solve all of their problems. But when I hear conservatives ask for government intervention on particular issues, I cringe.

Perhaps conservative commentator Mark Levin said it best to describe how I and many other conservatives feel. Those of us who appreciate the need for government to handle many issues such as national defense and infrastructure but who despise it when government gets involved in so many issues where it simply doesn’t belong can break our feelings down with this one line from Levin:

“The Conservative does not despise government. He despises tyranny. This is precisely why the Conservative reveres the Constitution and insists on adherence to it.”

The Constitution is not a document that grants us rights, despite what many claim. It’s a document that prevents government from trying to take away our rights bestowed on us by our Creator and affirmed by our free will.

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

Thomas Sowell makes a clear point about Medicare-for-All

How was the left able to take heat away from their Medicare-for-All proposal, and more specifically the estimated $32 trillion price tag over a decade? They tripled down with the Green New Deal, which some estimate would cost upwards near $100 trillion.

So, the price tag of the Democrats’ desired replacement for utterly failing Obamacare is to take current government control over healthcare and put it on a regiment of steroids and methamphetamine. When you’re going through Hell, keep going, I suppose.

But all of this could be alleviated if voters and politicians took a moment to think about the prospects of Medicare-for-All logically. Let’s erase, for a moment, the Utopian notion that taxing rich people extreme amounts will give us enough money to make healthcare free for everyone while also improving the quality. That’s the goal, right? Cheaper, better healthcare is what most people want. Conservatives believe it’s best to pull government administration out of the equation and put it all on a competitive capitalist model that has worked for nearly every other industry for over a century. Hyper-leftists want to add more government control.

Conservative commentator Thomas Sowell has some thoughts on the matter. One in particular can be wrapped up into an eloquent quote that should be ideological checkmate allowing us to win the healthcare debate.

“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.”

Of course, our version of checkmate requires common sense, logic, and basic math skills. These attributes aren’t as readily present on the left, therefore they might hear this logic and still think single-payer makes sense.

Alexander Hamilton predicted Trump Derangement Syndrome

Alexander Hamilton predicted Trump Derangement Syndrome

Federalist Alexander Hamilton is known for many things. His contributions to the Federalist Papers were some of the strongest. Even his death is a thing of lore. Then, of course, there’s the Broadway hit of his namesake. But what many don’t know is that he was also a fortune teller.

Okay, so technically he wasn’t really a fortune teller, but he seems to have been very prescient in the way he analyzed potential problems within government. One of his “predictions” was Trump Derangement Syndrome and one of the unfortunate side-effects – hating the messenger instead of the message. There are plenty of things that could make anyone, from leftist to conservative, quite upset. But those who are fair realize there have been some great things that have also happened during his short time as President. One needs only look at the state of the economy to realize he’s doing something right compared to his predecessor.

Here’s the quote from Hamilton that characterizes TDS perfectly:

“Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike.”

If President Obama had called for a border wall, he would get bipartisan support. But he didn’t. President Trump did. That makes it anathema in the eyes of leftists.
