NeverTrump catalyst Erick Erickson backs Trump-Pence for 2020

When conservative pundit Erick Erickson declared he would never vote for then-candidate Trump in 2016, he used a hashtag that has survived until today. #NeverTrump became the rallying hashtag for many conservatives who felt Trump was too flawed as a businessman, leader, and person to be President of the United States.

Today, Erickson announced he would be backing President Trump for his reelection bid.

My Take

This isn’t too surprising. It’s not that President Trump has been shockingly different from what we expected. Those of us who were #NeverTrump knew he would be childish on Twitter. We knew he would lean towards many leftist policies like tariffs, bump stock bans, red flag gun laws, and overuse of executive powers. We knew he wouldn’t be the Bible-driven leader America has needed for some time.

On the other hand, he delivered on many things we needed such as tax cuts and deregulation. He made the bold moves of renegotiating or dropping trade agreements, leaving both the Paris Climate Accords and Iran Nuclear Deal, and the one move that truly shocked me – moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

But it isn’t in his accomplishments that many of us find ourselves reconsidering President Trump. It’s in the unprecedented lurch to the far-left the Democratic Party has embraced. They’re sprinting as fast as they possibly can towards an ideology that would destroy America. We’ve heard the warnings before from conservatives. Bill Clinton was going to be too far to the left. Then, Barack Obama was definitely going to be too far to the left. With both of these Presidents, we saw a mild shift compared to the catastrophic shift so many predicted. I’m not saying President Obama was a moderate, but compared to where many thought he’d be, he wasn’t nearly as radically progressive as billed.

When we compare President Obama to the current batch of radical progressives in Washington DC, including the majority of those running for President, it’s clear they’ve abandoned any sense of reality Obama held to and embraced a socialistic agenda that truly will destroy America if it’s ever allowed to see the light of day.

The best thing that happened to President Trump is the untenable policy proposals we’re seeing from Democrats today. From Medicare-for-All to the Green New Deal, we’re seeing the full force of leftists unleashed. They’ve detached themselves from reality in an effort to drum up support from the masses that can’t understand the intellectual difference between a billion and a trillion.

Erickson may not have technically started the #NeverTrump movement, but he started the hashtag that drew many to that side of the aisle, the side that embraced neither major candidate. Now, he’s picked a side. Are others going to follow?

    With a Never-Trump Republican before:

    And it’s no nay never
    No nay never no more
    Will I play the wild rover
    No never no more.

    So’s what is the likelihood of the reelection of Trump? NONE AT ALL.

    The very real and inevitable END to Trump messing up and around in the lives of the nation’s and world’s humanity is the reality that he and the Republicans (that cannot stand him) attempt to cover-up with blather, rigged polls and posturing. This propagandizing of Trump being a winner serves two very separate interests: (1) Trump’s effort to stay afloat on his septic-sea of the turmoil he stirs bottom-up, and (2) Republicans bent on trying to sway Democrats into nominating a conservative that will serve doing little and nothing that addresses deep interests and pressing concern of a vast majority of a totally fed-up American people.

    The ploy is fabricated in the manipulative fake of poll results that contend a large majority of Republicans still support Trump—when in fact the majority will in no way vote for him, Fake and faking Trump loyalists are attempting to scare Democrats out of delivering the real changes that the American people want and need.

    In the Democratic pool to be poisoned by this effort, fake and faking members go along with the ploy by contending that their-first-and-last support goes to the candidate that can best defeat Trump and that they have no concern that such a candidate has neither the vision nor intent to work in rendering big and needed progress.

    The defeat-Trump-at-all-costs proffers a two-way work for Republicans: (1) they get more of the same they have put in place, and (2) another opportunity blame the Democrats for being party to and Party of government being a stagnation and strangulation tool in the hands of . . . ah, the Democratic Party. Work to achieve nothing by avoiding nothing and the something you get is disastrously worse than nothing

Joe Biden invokes Charlottesville to announce his presidential campaign

Joe Biden invokes Charlottesville to announce his presidential campaign

The worst kept secret in DC has finally been made official. Former Vice President Joe Biden has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President. The Establishment wing of the party is mostly rejoicing.

Unlike many who have already announced their candidacy by going on talk shows for the audience energy, Biden’s announcement came in the form of a video, reminiscent of how Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy in 2015. In the video, Biden claims to have been driven to run against President Trump following the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally and protests in which counter-protester Heather Danielle Heyer was killed by a white supremacist. It wasn’t the event itself but the President’s infamous reaction to the incident that Biden claims was his inspiration to run.

He joins a crowded field as one of the two frontrunners. Former candidate and current Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is ahead in some polls, behind in others, but the two are far ahead of the rest of the field.

Some doubts sprung up about whether or not he would run following a report by former Democratic lawmaker Lucy Flores that Biden inappropriately touched her and kissed her on the back of her head without permission. She was appalled because, among other things, she hadn’t had time to wash her hair that morning.

Now that it’s official, Biden is sure to continue making waves. Whether or not he has enough support from the moderate wing to overtake the other candidates, nearly all of whom are radical progressives, remains to be seen.

Conspiracy Theory

Former CIA analyst: U.K. spied on Trump campaign, passed information to Obama team

Former CIA analyst UK spied on Trump campaign passed information to Obama team

OAN’s Neil W. McCabe spoke to a former CIA analyst, Larry Johnson, about the 2016 spying by the Obama administration against the Trump campaign. He indicated the British government helped participate in the spying and even gave direct information to the administration as a form of “oppo research.”

By taking advantage of the “Five Eyes Club” – a joint effort of intelligence sharing between the U.S., U.K., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia – the Obama administration was able to put together enough information to help them “find” a case they could make against the candidate. It yielded no real fruit, but that didn’t prevent the illegally gathered data from later being used to help justify the bogus Mueller probe.

It’s bad enough the former administration used American resources to try to stop an opposition candidate. It’s worse that they employed the services of our allies. This is a bombshell that mainstream media won’t discuss.

Netanyahu to push for town in Golan Heights to be named after President Trump

Netanyahu to push for town in Golan Heights to be named after President Trump

The relationship between the leaders of Israel and the United States is at its strongest point in decades, possibly ever. President Trump has fulfilled his promise to reverse the damage done by his predecessor in foreign affairs, particularly with certain allies like Israel. Now, the Prime Minister of Israel is calling for a nice tribute.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a video Tuesday detailing his desire to honor the President following the Passover holiday.

Opinion

When the President announced the need for America and the rest of the world to recognize the Golan Heights as a sovereign part of Israel, most on the right in both countries cheered. It was a departure from a long-standing policy, one that has been overdue in need of changing.

This gesture should not be dismissed. It’s significant because the United States has been one of the few allies for the Jewish state, but that status was put in jeopardy by President Obama who called for a return to the pre-1967 borders. Such a move would put Israel in a strategically untenable position, making it practically impossible for it to defend itself against attacks from the north.

Settlements in the region have been greatly misunderstood, mostly due to United Nations propaganda. These settlements are not intended as a middle finger of sorts towards the U.N. and all the nations calling for the land to be returned. It’s a strategic maneuver that empowers Israel to protect its vulnerable borders.

By naming a settlement after President Trump, Israel will help solidify the relationship for at least another two years and possibly much longer than that.

Quote

“Therefore, after the Passover holiday, I intend to bring to the government a resolution calling for a new community on the Golan Heights named after President Donald J. Trump.” – Benjamin Netanyahu

Final Thoughts

Israel is the one true democracy in the Middle East and the only ally in the region that shares our values. Our future is as tied to them as their future is tied to ours. It’s imperative that this relationship remains strong.
