The political vitriol and rancor that currently exist nationwide reached a boiling point last week with the horrendous shooting spree in Washington DC.
Complete mayhem was averted by the quick action of the White House Guards who returned fire and took the assailant down.
Unfortunately, Congressman Scalise was the most severely wounded and is still undergoing critical surgery.
Leading up to the shooting we thought we had seen the worst as far as animosity towards President Trump. First there was the hideous picture by so-called comedian Kathy Griffin holding the severed head of the President by the hair. Second, there was the ongoing criticism of so-called comedians against Trump, which hit a low point in comments from Steven Colbert and Bill Maher. Maher and Colbert are about as funny as a pair of rubber crutches. They were joined by another so-called entertainer, the aptly named Snoop Dogg, who did a fake assassination with a toy pistol against Trump. Currently, there’s a play in New York that is a take-off on the assassination of Julius Caesar and shows President Trump being murdered.
For some reason, the art world is immune to any criticism when they provide disgusting acts of slander. Whether it occurs in music, performances, cartoons or motion pictures, it is not to be criticized. The same might apply to some politicians that speak out of both sides of their mouths, such as Nancy Pelosi when she uttered great sympathy for Scalise and shortly afterwards castigated the Republicans for somehow being responsible for the tragedy. Adding to today’s high-combustion divide is the so-called “mainstream media” that exists primarily in New York. This maelstrom of negativity is like a hurricane with two eyes. One eye is in Washington and the other in New York City. The constant exposure of news stories credited to unnamed sources and the continual lambasting of the White House by Democrat officials such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer continue to pour gasoline on the fiery and toxic situation.
On another note, it was revealed that the shooter in the Washington incident was a proud supporter and volunteer of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Although Sanders himself quickly condemned the shooting and disavowed the perpetrator, it is interesting to note Webster’s definition of revolution, which was a word continually used by Sanders when he was running. It reads, “A radical change in Constitution of a country after revolt marked by great and violent changes”.
Speaking of the past presidential campaign, the constant theme used by both Hillary and her surrogates, particularly President Obama, was the statement that Donald Trump was “unfit” to be President. If that were true, then it stands to reason that Hillary is more “unfit” than Trump since he easily defeated her.
As of this writing, President Trump is set to make a speech in Miami, Florida in which he will announce radical changes to the agenda pushed by President Obama re: US Cuba relations. Instead of doing “the wave” with Fidel’s brother as Obama did, Trump will push for American dollars going to the populace instead of to the onerous Castro military machine.
