“State Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, said the amended Senate Bill 30 will prohibit the state from contracting with any person or organization that provides any goods or services for the wall.” Of course we are used to seeing virtue signaling bills being passed by all branches of California government where they threaten to not do business with states or companies within those states when those states pass legislation with which they disagree, but I think this might be the first time in which they are threatening actions against individuals.
You ever watch a video online and have to double check that it is not fake. I was watching video from MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with anchor Lawrence O’Donnell and I began to wonder if maybe the first successful brain transplant had been performed between O’Donnell and Alex Jones. If you have read my blog for any length of time then you know I have issues when mundane events are explained with overly complex and dramatic conspiracy theories because while they can be entertaining they are just lazy thinking in the way that they hammer square facts into round story holes.
President Trump promised on the campaign trail that we would get sick of winning. Well I certainly have not bagged my limit yet and every little win is especially sweet as I watch the Left either ignore it completely and not report it in mainstream media or utterly meltdown. Either way the truth will ultimately get out because even the media cannot hide everyone’s 401K and pay raises from them. The job growth numbers were pretty weak, but it looks as if this was impacted more by weather and one month does not make a trend. President Trump will get a lot of leeway for his reelection if the economic numbers keep climbing and because liberal tears are sweet like wine.
First let me start by saying that I am of two minds on the Syrian strike. I have been watching the debate rage back and forth all day across every social media platform. If the decision is clear cut for you on what the appropriate action should have been congratulations. For me situations like this are always difficult because they are not black and white. On one hand you have serious atrocities being committed against women and children and on the other you have a quagmire in which America has been seemingly stuck for the last 20 years.
Since February I have seen several articles where it appeared that many Senators seemed on the fence for supporting border security and may be ready to use it as a bargaining chip to gain concessions from Democrats. Republicans this would be a mistake as this is one of three items that if you clearly stand against it, the people will not show up to support you in the future. The voters sent you to Washington to fight for the values we hold dear not to compromise on the safety and sovereignty of America.
Americans are many things, but ultimately we are pragmatists. When we step into a voting booth many times our decisions are driven by what is best for our 401K, college savings accounts and our wallets. In this sense Obama was a horrible president. The numbers are in and despite have carte blanch on zero percent interest rates, 9 trillion in added debt and a compliant media that thought he walked on water Obama failed to reach a mark that every president prior to him had achieve for at least one quarter during their presidency… 3% economic growth.
On the day that several news sources all confirmed that Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was the person responsible for the unmasking of American citizens in intelligence reports, one has to wonder why so many of the left leaning media outlets refused to run the story or worse set out to report the story in a manner to downplay its significance. Many “so called journalist” like our buddy Don Lemon even went as far to lecture their viewers on why this was a non-story and immediately went right back to the Trump – Russia well.
