Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
I astonishes me how much law enforcement has improved during the Trump Administration. He should get more credit for it.
No, really: remember last Summer when thousands of people demonstrated against police, insisting that Black Lives Matter? They shut down Snelling for the State Fair, shut down freeways, marched all over, all the time, all for the same purpose — to protest unfair treatment of Blacks by law enforcement.
There hasn’t been one such march since Trump took office; therefore, Trump solved the problem and he ought to get credit for it.
Either that, or there never was a problem, the whole thing was a billionaire-financed fake movement intended solely to whip up minority support for the Democrat candidate for President. Now that she’s lost, there’d be no need to spend money on agitators and consequently no marches. Who could believe such a cynical thing? That can’t possibly be the reason. No, it must be all Trump’s doing. He saved the nation from a heinous and ongoing civil rights injustice. Good for him.
As we noted earlier this week, the Obama Administration’s big “victory” was fairly destroying race relations in this country.
Did Trump do anything wrong? We don’t know – that’s what trials (and the whole “innocent until proven guilty”) thing is all about.
But the firestorm of agitation that Big Left and the Media are whipping up, in the absence of any hard evidence, has nothing to do with right, wrong or justice, says Kurt Schlichter:
The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.
This is a coup against us. It’s a coordinated campaign by liberals and their allies in the bureaucracy and media to once and for all ensure their perpetual rule over us. We need to fight it, here and now, so we don’t have to fight it down at the bottom of this slippery slope.
There are times I wonder if this nation shouldn’t just call it quits and split into 2-5 other nations, and let the coasts rot in their own splendid filth.
