While there are good things in President Trump’s tax plan, there are some serious poison pills to watch out for. The first problem is that fewer and fewer people will pay federal income taxes, while still receiving government benefits. The second problem is that Trump has left open the possibility for a new top tax bracket that Democrat leadership will surely use to exploit and divide. Also, we have no idea what the definition of rich is according to them. The difference between populists and conservatives is that we don’t play class warfare. Ronald Reagan didn’t play the class warfare game, but cut taxes across the board for all Americans. This is about Americanism and capitalism when we talk about tax cuts. The elite needs to stop assigning Americans fictional titles and labels. The only way to create true economic success in America is to take on the left and those who believe in Marxism. In addition, camera operators were ordered to avoid filming counter protestors at NFL games. Sports media wants to censor this and they are digging a deep hole for themselves. To add, NFL players who take a knee during the National Anthem are thoroughly disrespectful to the country but look at what they are taking the knee for. They are taking a knee for an anti-law and order, anti-cop and an anti-system cause. Finally, it’s the good old conservative values of the American people that led to Roy Moore’s victory over Luther Strange in Alabama. These conservative values will never die and the liberal media will never get it. Roy Moore was forced off the Supreme Court in Alabama because he stood for what he believed in. The media accuse Moore of being a radical yet they ignore Bernie Sanders. Why is it when the left does such things it is ok?
Bill Cunningham fills in for Mark. Pundits at CNN, MSNBC and ESPN talk about the NFL players having a right to speak under the 1st Amendment. However, the 1st Amendment does not and never will apply to private employers. Also, the NFL owners have prohibited all kinds of expression. Last year the Dallas Cowboys were prohibited from honoring murdered cops with police decals. And Avery Williams wanted to wear a patch that said “never forget” to honor 9/11 but the NFL would not let him to wear it. How in the world was it possible for the NFL to let Colin Kaepernick begin this protest is beyond reason? Sports should not be a venture which communicate the most radical elements of the progressive agenda. After that, there is a differential to one’s opposition to the president and one’s opposition to the American flag. We may disagree with President Trump’s policies, but this hatred must not be transferred into disrespecting symbols of America’s greatness. To add, Barack Obama invited Black Lives Matter organizers into the White House after the Dallas police shootings in 2016. Obama failed to condemn BLM and took pictures with those who incited murder of police. The media didn’t point this out because the media supports BLM. What if Trump invited white supremacists to the White House after Charlottesville? What Obama did was analogous. Finally, one of the building blocks of society is law enforcement. Without cops there is a thin blue line between civilization and anarchy. If it was announced tonight that all law enforcement will go on a 48 hour strike, all hell would break loose. Law enforcement must be supported.
Samantha Power, a former U.S. ambassador to the UN, was unmasking at the rate of one person per day in 2016. The Obama administration’s abuse of power with respect to domestic surveillance is being exposed. We have Susan Rice unmasking despite her argument and Power unmasking like a crazy person. However it is much broader than Rice or Power. You would have to be blind to not see how the Obama administration violated our trust and the law to target people that they disagreed with. This is not a joke but issue number one at the domestic level. The media says that we have freedom of the press, but they and the Obama administration are in full cover up mode. This is big and we have barely gotten to the surface. The buck stops with Obama. After that, your healthcare is up for debate again. The average American has no say in how the nation’s healthcare system is going to be structured. The truth is it is none of the government’s business. However, Bernie Sanders is supporting single payer healthcare and under his plan, private insurance will be eliminated and we would be stuck with relying on the government. Later, Rick Santorum calls into talk about the Graham-Cassidy healthcare reform bill. This is a similar approach to welfare reform done in the 1990’s. You give states the flexibility to fix the problem and you will drive down costs and get innovation. For example, states can come up with different ways to deal with preexisting conditions. In addition, America needs to deal with North Korea and the best way to do that is through China has a massive debt as a percentage of their economy. The U.S. ought to treat China like Ronald Reagan treated the Soviet Union. We need to put economic pressure on China and put nuclear warheads in South Korea. What President Trump is doing with North Korea is more effective than past presidents. Also, when it comes to Iran, we can go it alone with sanctions. Iran is on its way to a nuclear weapon under the current Iran deal. We need to delegitimize Iran and shut off our agreement with them.
