Breaking news: President threatens journalist with violence !

February 9, 2017

If Americans haven’t already had enough, the President has now threatened a journalist with violence. The president’s crude remarks implied that he would injure the man’s genitals and smash his face. He also attacked the man’s ancestry.

This president already has the lowest approval rating of any other in American history. His profanity laced speeches and public comments have demeaned the office. And some of his crude private remarks, which have come to light, are deeply offensive to decent women and young ladies.

I am speaking, of course, about Harry S. Truman. Often ranked by historians as one of the greatest presidents in American history.

While the national media gives the impression that Donald J. Trump’s approval rating is at record lows, it is actually twice as high as Harry Truman’s low moment, which once dipped to 22%.

The media says that Trump’s contempt for them is dangerous and a threat to democracy, but it pales when compared to Harry Truman, Richard Nixon and even Bill Clinton. Both Truman and Clinton threatened physical violence against journalists in their time. Clinton threatened to punch William Safire in the face when he called his wife, Hillary Clinton, a congenital liar in a column in the New York Times.

Truman, like Trump, was incensed about how his daughter was being treated. Donald Trump saw Nordstrom’s drop her line of merchandise, their nod to the politically correct Leftists, who now berate the American people in street riots and entertaining YouTube messages filled with the F word.

President Harry Truman directed his anger at a music critic who panned his daughter, Margaret. But Truman was far more belligerent than Donald Trump. He called the writer, an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”

Said Truman, “It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

“Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

“Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.”

History deprived journalists, some obvious products of the American public school system, without the advantages of a private education, which presidents and their children enjoy, are quick to label everything that Trump is doing as unprecedented and alarming. Which may reveal more about them than about Trump.

The only thing unprecedented is his non political way of running the office. Which is rather comforting to those of us who were hoping he wasn’t a politician.

And then there is the fact that he seems to be keeping his word. Now, that’s a switch from recent occupants of the White House.

How well we remember.”Read my lips no new taxes.”

Or, “I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.”

Or, “The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.”

Or, “You can even keep your own doctor.”

No, Trump hasn’t threatened to punch anybody in the nose, like Truman. He doesn’t have a Fiddle and Faddle on staff to service his sexual needs as did allegedly, John F. Kennedy. He hasn’t appointed his best friend to run the IRS, which Hillary Clinton did, who  then just happened to audit the president’s enemies, including the women who accused her husband of sexual assault.

At some point, hyper ventilating, arrogant journalists, who insisted that American had to choose between Trump and Clinton, and no one else, must accept the results of an election they tried to manipulate. So let us get on with restoring the greatness of America.

You journalists have your job, dictating to all the rest of us how to talk and think and live, how about letting us get a paying job for ourselves?

Thanks, President Trump, for Carrier, for Ford and now for Intel. And thanks for refusing to take your own salary. Nobody mentions that. And like all the presidents before you, keep standing up for your daughter! That’s a dad’s right. All dad’s. Even if that dad is president.

Give Charlie Black a Break

June 27, 2008

C’mon.  You got be kidding?  Charlie Black, one of American’s most veteran, experienced, professional political operators, is asked by a journalist if a terrorist attack on American soil would work to John McCain’s advantage and he says yes.  And that is a scandal? Naaah. Tell me this ain’t happening?

And then Obama spokesman, Bill Burton says that Black’s comments are “a complete disgrace.” Te, he, he.

And then McCain says of Charlie Black, his own political strategist, “I cannot imagine why he would say it.  It’s not true.” Oh my goodness. Did McCain really say that?

This is just too comical.  At least thirty million people have said and thought that a terrorist act on American soil would work to McCain’s advantage that includes everyone who has read a headline or watched the evening news at least once in the last month.  It doesn’t mean they want it to happen or that they don’t care about their fellow Americans, they are just thinking the same things that any political observer with an I.Q. of 85 and above would be thinking.  Sort of like, the continued downturn in the economy helps Obama.

I’ll tell you what would have been a scandal, if Charlie Black had said no.  Now, that would have confirmed to us all that he is either a blooming idiot or a hypocrite.  Which is what McCain looks like for saying what we all know is an absolute bald faced lie.  I mean, I may vote for the man, but for him to get up and say that it is not true, that a terrorist act on American soil would not raise our concerns about security and make us more likely to vote for him, is just gaggable.  If it is not true then why is he running for president?  He needs to change his speeches and pull all his proposed ads for the fall.

I’ll tell you what would have been impressive.  If the Obama camp had just overlooked it, or said something gracious like they did when Hillary mused about the tidings of June.  That would have made them look really big.

And sooner or later, McCain has got to demonstrate loyalty to somebody.  Other than George W. Bush, that is, and the media drummers to whose beat he, McCain, faithfully jumps.

Look at Barack Obama’s difficulty in breaking with Rev. Wright?  In fact, one could make the case that he didn’t break with him at all.  It was the other way around.  And Obama stood by his foreign advisor who made the ill timed remarks at that conference in Canada.  It smacks of Harry Truman’s touching loyalty to Thomas Pendergast.  It makes him look good, like a leader.  Like someone who will not drop you when you’re down.

And then compare that to McCain’s dumping of John Hagee, who raised $30 million for Israeli – Jewish causes but was left to look like some anti-semite bigot because it was too complicated to explain predestination.  And now, McCain dumps on his own political strategist. Hmmm.

“I cannot imagine why he would say it.  It’s not true.”  Yeah, right.
