Thanks, Marsha

Friday, March 15, 2019

Last year I wrote posts supporting Marsha Blackburn for the U.S. Senate from Tennessee. Her opponent, multi-millionaire Democrat Phil Bredesen, spent months dancing around many of the big issues hoping to waltz his way into office. One of those big issues was the border wall.

I appreciate every single voter who examined the candidates and decided which would support the man Tennessee helped to elected president in 2016. And they saw through the DNC commercials designed to bamboozle voters into supporting their candidate. This week, the candidate we elected voted no to the Democrats’ resolution condemning President Trump’s declaration of an emergency regarding the southern border. I’ll leave the readers to imagine how Waltzin’ Phil would have voted.

In July of 2014, Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post described the tens of thousands of immigrant children streaming across the border as a “crisis.” Further in her article she called it an “emergency.”

But on Jan. 8 of this year, Tumulty changed her tune in order to fit their current narrative. Appearing on MSNBC, Tumulty said regarding the current border situation, “We are headed to this extraordinary situation where the president (Trump) declares a state of emergency that doesn’t exist.” Seventy-six thousand people came into America illegally across the southern border last month (Source: New York Times, March 5, 2019) but now Tumulty doesn’t call that a crisis. Thousands more were turned away by the Border Patrol, but that doesn’t constitute an emergency to Ms. Tumulty either. Disingenuous stuff posing as journalism is exactly why Trump and Blackburn were elected. 

With Democrats and the subjective news media a crisis is only a crisis or an emergency an emergency when one of their side is using it to bash their enemies.

This pathetic farce played out in the Congress was nothing more than another obstructionist step in the plan Democrats have been waging since Trump was elected. What their party has to offer is nothing but “resistance” and the weekly promise of a new giveaway program requiring more confiscation of our hard earned wages. No wonder they want to raise the minimum wage, they plan to gobble it up in new taxes to pay for their latest trillion dollar giveaway scheme.

It should be obvious to Americans all Democrats have is their fanatic obsession with trying to overturn the last presidential election before President Trump can appoint more constitutionalists to federal judgeships. And failing at that, they hope to get in power by promising more and more “free stuff.” 

So thank you, Marsha, for keeping your promise to support the President. And thank you again Tennesseans for rejecting the solicitous candidate who would now be eating a sack lunch with a group of actors while a real crisis is ongoing at our southern border.

Perhaps Waltzin’ Phil can have more time to eat and possibly take a few lessons from Beto O’Rourke on how to dance on lunch counters after he finishes his sack lunch.
