Who are our representatives?

During the past 2 months when the Supreme Court Justice nomination was named, all hell has broken out in the senate.  The democrats do not want this Brett Kavanaugh, who has been in the number 2 spot for the past 12 years to be raised to the number 1 spot, the Supreme Court.   Why?

For three very petty and immature reasons:

1.  Because President Trump chose him.  No other explanation needed.

2.  Because Judge Kavanaugh is a conservative and believes in the Constitution as it stands.  Again, no other explanation needed.

3.  Because with Judge Kavanaugh's conservative presence, the balance on the bench will lean and most gently always lean to the conservative resolve.  The only explanation here is the threat of the overthrowing of Roe vs Wade and all the pro-choice and abortion-happy lib's will not be able to have their freedom of being able to murder innocent babies and go on with their selfish living uncompromising.

Now for my question of who is our representatives?

When I went to the polls and put in my thoughtful vote for conservative leadership, I expected that these individuals would speak my speak, and walk my walk in DC for me.  Thankfully, my senator, Richard Burr has made it clear that he will be voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh when that vote comes up.  The others in the room, I'm not so sure are following their supporters' wishes. 

The bullying that Feinstein and Coons and other are inflicting their fellow representatives is beyond the realm of reason, maturity, and fairness.  These individuals are committing detrimental breaches of the votes that they were put in DC to do.  Each and every elected official has a duty to their citizens NOT to each other!  They do NOT have nor should they listen to this woman and her cohorts' threats and bullying.  This is pure un-American behavior.

Why are we America?  The colonies were established by human beings that were persecuted by the government for their religious beliefs.  We are America because we want the freedoms of religion, leadership, and the pursuit of happiness.

This is being lost.  Prayer for the nation is a must, phone calls, emails, and spreading the words of our displeasure is happening now.

Basically, what these people are not even thinking about is our children...they are watching, and taking notes.  Is this what we want for them?  Is this the representation example we want them to follow?  God, save us all.

The United States Constitution.

"War is sorrowful, but there is one thing infinitely more horrible than the worst horrors of war, and that is the feeling that nothing is worth fighting for..."
-- Harper's Weekly, December 31, 1864

Progress that is not in press


Nurturing a Small Business Boon
- The Washington Times
“As we mark six months since Mr. Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law, we continue to see more Americans working,” Administrator Linda McMahon, head of the Small Business Administration, writes. “With more money in their pockets, Americans are spending again — and that’s good news for small businesses.”
Supreme Court Rules that President Trump's Travel Ban is Constitutional
The Supreme Court found this week that President Trump’s order on travel restrictions falls “squarely” within his executive authority, Tucker Higgins reports for CNBC. “The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote.
American Money Flowing Back into America
- Fox Business
“America’s CEOs are not wasting anytime in taking advantage of [President Trump’s] tax reform plan. Over $300 billion was repatriated to the U.S. in the first quarter, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) — the most on record,” Suzanne O’Halloran writes. “This is why many economists are boosting their GDP forecasts to between 3% and 4%.”
Foxconn Investment is Sign of More to Come
- Journal Times
“The groundbreaking on Foxconn’s $10-billion factory to produce state-of-the-art flat-panel displays in Mount Pleasant represents a milestone for America,” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross writes. “It would never have happened without the promise of the Trump tax cuts and the President’s personal intervention.”
Stand Tough on Trade: It’s a Start to Give Support to U.S. Manufacturing
- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Editorial Board writes that President Trump “is forcing a re-examination of America’s trade policies, and making other countries consider the consequences of the trade war they have long waged upon us.” The editors remind readers that “America has been reflexively globalist and anti-protectionist for a long time now, and it has not worked. The Rust Belt has been impoverished.”
President Trump's Approval Rating Rises Among Hispanics
- RealClearPolitics
In RealClearPolitics, Steve Cortes points out that the main driver of President Trump’s growing popularity is “a stunning 10 percent rise in Trump approval among Hispanics.” Cortes explains that “as President Trump pursues policies that drive growth and public safety – such as tax cuts and cracking down on the MS-13 gang – no wonder his popularity rises apace among Latinos.”
Democracy Requires Borders
- Washington Examiner
The Washington Examiner Editorial Board argues that the open border ideology of Democrats and left-wing commentators “is as dangerous as it is unpopular.” The editors paint a stark picture of that policy’s consequencs: “Theoretically, we could give up on borders, as some seem to want. But that would mean giving up on having a democratic society.”
President Trump Will Protect US Farmers from China's Trade Retaliation
- USA Today
“President Donald Trump is standing up to China, which wrongly believes it can bully our farmers to get America to back away from defending our national interests,” Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue writes in an op-ed for USA Today. “He will not allow U.S. agriculture to bear the brunt of China’s retaliatory tactics.”
The Great Economic Comeback is Greatest for Millennials
- Washington Examiner
“Thanks to a robust economy, historically low unemployment, and the largest tax cut in history, our country is in the midst of a great American comeback, and millennials, perhaps more than any other generation, will reap the fruit of this great economic boon,” Ryan Fournier writes.
Buying American Can Help Keep the Philly Shipyard Afloat
- The Philadelphia Inquirer
“President Trump’s commitment to a 355-ship United States Navy, together with this administration’s ongoing efforts to expand opportunities for United States industry, are creating the conditions for a more vibrant maritime industry and the rejuvenation of great maritime cities such as Philadelphia,” writes Peter Navarro, Director of the White House National Trade Council.
American Natural Gas Is Fueling the World’s Future
- Washington Examiner
Energy Secretary Rick Perry writes that “the United States is now producing enough natural gas and other fuels to be on the verge of energy independence. This positive development is untying the hands of our elected leadership, and enabling it to conduct foreign policy in a way that advances this Nation and its allies’ interests.”

The Hat

There has been so much anger displayed in the streets of our country for so long now, and especially  since our new president, Donald Trump, came into office.  I have read and heard all the sides of the issues.  It broke my heart to see, on January 21st, the thousands of women (and men) who are basically misguided and enraged beyond sanity making such a disgusting display as the world watched.  There was huge disconnects in the marchers as evident by all the many many different signs with so many different messages that I found it difficult as to what the march was about.  Was it an anti-Trump march?  Was it an anti-life march, an anti-man march, anti-God march?....any thing in between?   I frankly couldn't tell and it was confusing on Facebook, a cousin of my husband ( of whom I claim as my cousin as well) asked the question, what and why are you marching?  It was a peaceful march for equality and women's rights, one said.  It was all about hate, another said....very opposing views indeed!

The most scary thing about this march on January 21 was that it was composed of hundreds and thousands of people who were outrageously angry and filled with hate toward anyone who opposed their views, especially about the unborn babies and the right to believe that abortion is murder hands discussion, and that the new administration in Washington, DC needs a chance to work before judgement cast.

More importantly to note, however, is that this January 21, 2017 "women's" march was contrived by the psychological concept of Group Think.  It was cunningly sold to these women with a hat.  A hat that was going to brand this march together with a strong message of unity and power.  At one site, there were women clamoring for the pattern to crochet, knit, or sew...for themselves or others.  The pattern was posted on ravelry, craftsy, and others.  It was the hat...the branding, that made this group of people grow into such a force that it wasn't going to be stopped.   Good or bad, this group of people were like syrup on hot pancakes...soaking it all up and seeping into their veins a cause that they themselves could not see past.  With their pink hats, they found power and a voice.  As I watched the speakers with their hateful and angry voices, none of them, I noticed wore one of these hats!  The organizer was wearing her hijab, her religious head and neck covering, and it was not even pink, Madonna wore a hat, but it was black, Cher didn't wear a hat, neither did the Planned Parenthood chairwoman, but all the cattle call did.....happily.

Did they not see this?

Looking up the term group-think, I found several definitions, but all consist of several very disturbing symptoms: Psychology Today defines it this way:

Groupthink occurs when a group values harmony and coherence over accurate analysis and critical evaluation. It causes individual members of the group to unquestioningly follow the word of the leader and it strongly discourages any disagreement with the consensus.

Symptoms of Groupthink

  1. Illusion of invulnerability –Creates excessive optimism that encourages taking extreme risks.
  2. Collective rationalization – Members discount warnings and do not reconsider their assumptions.
  3. Belief in inherent morality – Members believe in the rightness of their cause and therefore ignore the ethical or moral consequences of their decisions.
  4. Stereotyped views of out-groups – Negative views of “enemy” make effective responses to conflict seem unnecessary.
  5. Direct pressure on dissenters – Members are under pressure not to express arguments against any of the group’s views.
  6. Self-censorship – Doubts and deviations from the perceived group consensus are not expressed.
  7. Illusion of unanimity – The majority view and judgments are assumed to be unanimous.
  8. Self-appointed ‘mindguards’ – Members protect the group and the leader from information that is problematic or contradictory to the group’s cohesiveness, view, and/or decisions.

When the above symptoms exist in a group that is trying to make a decision, there is a reasonable chance that groupthink will happen, although it is not necessarily so.  Groupthink occurs when groups are highly cohesive and when they are under considerable pressure to make a quality decision.  When pressures for unanimity seem overwhelming, members are less motivated to realistically appraise the alternative courses of action available to them.  These group pressures lead to carelessness and irrational thinking since groups experiencing groupthink fail to consider all alternatives and seek to maintain unanimity.  Decisions shaped by groupthink have low probability of achieving successful outcomes.

Enough is Enough!! I'm DONE with the media and you should be too!

I'm going to stop watching the poison that is the news We know who the "players" are in this election, there is no more information that could be any more damaging to either candidate. The media bias is nauseating and childish and boring at the same time. I am mostly tired of the drama and sway the media and political camps are imposing to the citizens, playing on their gullibility and lazy ignorance
I'm sick and tired of being "played" and watching the nation dividing at such nonsense with little care at what our children and the rest of the world are witnessing. It's garbage, disrespect, a crime, irresponsible, immature, manipulating, deceitful, evil, destructive, debilitating, sinful, unrelenting, spoiled, and incomprehensible what we the people have allowed our country to sink into and I am not going to watch this media poison any longer 

Enough is enough.
Corruption IS the norm now.....lying, cheating the public, telling half-truths, not being completely open and upfront, the little white lie.......however you describe it, it is not the truth.

Frankly, I'm frightened, frightened that I can't count on the President, and those working with and for him to tell the truth.  There is an agenda in play that has literally nothing to do with the constitution, which our country was founded on. Literally nothing to do with keeping our country safe and free
for all it citizens, literally nothing to do with the freedoms of worship, speech, and the pursuit of happiness, literally nothing at all to do with common sense basically.

 Oh, and if you didn't think our racial relations were worsened since the past 8 years of a president and first lady that claim and proclaim that they are embarrassed and ashamed of being Americans you have been living in an ever loving cave!
