Looking at points from previous letters

With some of the laughable letters locals have been writing, I never lack for inspiration or material for my monthly letter. Last month, it was Sherry Keith Kelley, chairwoman of the Hardin County Democratic Party, who was my muse. This month, Mike Wilson and Jack Herrmann share that honor. Both seem to share a condition common to many of their fellow Democrats: Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Mr. Wilson seems unwilling to accept the simple fact the Mueller Report found no probable cause to support prosection for either election collusion with the Russian government by the Trump campaign or obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump. It never was Robert Mueller’s job to find someone innocent or guilty. Anyone not completely ignorant of the judicial process would have known that already.

Mr. Herrmann claims President Trump is tearing this country apart while ignoring the antics of his own party which have in fact been doing just that. Ever heard of ANTIFA? Who set up “The Resistance” shortly after the last presidential election?

So, what exactly is behind the Democrats being so hell bent on destroying President Trump? It’s fear.

Fear that what he has been doing is working. Fear that this might cost them the power they lust for. And mostly, the fear that they are bankrupt of any real ideas on how to make life better for the people of America. Is it any wonder Democrats want to distract us with their politics of personal destruction?

You did not say whether you agreed with Nolte on the two points I mentioned, so I'll rephrase them as questions --

1) Do you think Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein are "dirty cops,"

2) Do you think the New York Times and Washington Post are the "fake news media".....

-- Greg

LINDA DUV

Greg, Nolte is definitely biased but no more than Chuck Todd, Martha Raddatz or ANYONE from the far left networks CNN or MSNBC. As far as WAPO and the NY Times being biased, answer me when the last time either paper endorsed a Republican presidential nominee. Remember Michael Dukakis? lol

Linda, do you believe a far-right blog post by John Nolte is a good source of non-biased information? Assuming you agree with Nolte,

1) You think Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein are "dirty cops,"

2) You think the New York Times and Washington Post are the "fake news media".....

If that is not the case, please say so, I don't want to waste a letter to the editor.... lol

See attached. The real numbers. The Texas numbers are completely devastating. Over 1,300 murders in 7 years.

Wow, another article and web site promoting Conservative ideology and propaganda. If you had bothered to check the author used to work for The Heritage Foundation. His article has no real solutions nor any positives about legal immigrants. Instead, he wants restrictions on legal immigrants which is the Trump agenda. Big surprise.

Michael93v4

Completely devastating? Texas has over 1,400 murders a year. Over seven years that means 185.7 murders allegedly committed by illegals. So 1,200 murders committed in Texas by Americans and you don't blink. Keep hating legal and illegal immigrants because that is what Jesus would do. And if you want to know why so many are leaving South America. Look up how are CIA have disrupted the governments in South America. How we abanded the war on drugs and left drug lords and ex-American South American loyalist who are now local warlords. American Corporations did not want competition from South American countries or corporations. It is a mess past administrations created. Donald Trump just made it worse by stopping foreign aid. Now South Americans will either join gangs, drug lords or warlords. Or they flee the country. Anyway, you look at it America created and sustained the problems in South America.
And over the last few decades since Ronald Reagan, we have made it more difficult to immigrate into America. Ronald Reagan warned against these actions but the Conservatives were already infecting the GOP with their racist policies and outlooks.

FOX news articles. Well that is obvious truth because FOX news is always truthful. I wonder why Rosensein or FOX news never mentioned Conservative Republican Mitch McConnell or all the other Conservaive Republicans sitting on these Intellegnce committees who knew everything President Obama knew. Oh yea FOX News only attacks Democrats.

Breitbart is a self-proclaimed Conservative organization. What Democrat have they supported? To repeat or forward their hate articles is just pure propaganda. Why not just quote Alex Jones as a source.

Kenneth L Randall a typical Donald Trump cultist. Attacking those who disapprove of Trump's lies and deceptions. Since "your the guy" perhaps you would care to actually refute peoples comments you disagree with. Instead you cultist just think anyone who writes unflattering comments about Donald Trump does so because they just hate them. That is because you and your fellow cultist did that to President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. We never saw any love written by you people for them or any Democrat. So you writing about opinions expressed by people who disapprove of Donald Trump and calling it some sort of derangement syndrome is hilarious. You have been hating on Democrats from your very first letter to the editor. I have talked to you and you are wrong on about every political subject.
Try answering these questions:
Donald Trump's tariff war has cost more American jobs then they have created.
Donald Trump's National emergency about Steel and aluminum was really corporate welfare for a failing American industry.
Donald Trump's failed attempt to bond with North Korea was a publicity stunt that failed.
Donald Trump's name calling and personal attacks on Democrats have divided this Nation beyond repair.
Donald Trump's lying about what the Mueller report actually said has created a mental illness among his cultist about the Mueller report. Donald Trump was proven to have tried to obstruct justice but since his staff refused to do what he said he was not charged with obstruction of justice. But the Congress and Senate can take action for his attempt.
Donald Trump's tariff war has hurt the American farmer. He is now having to bail the American Farmer out.
Donald Trump said he would release his tax returns and then after he was elected said he would not. He is under investigation by the federal government, state governments, and international governments over taxes and business practices including lying to investors about his actual wealth. Donald Trump has five bankruptcies and he is under investigation for possibly lying about his losses to get the bankruptcies approved.
Donald Trump has used his properties to make money while president. That is illegal.
Donald Trump's economy growth statements have had to be restated down after every quarter.
Donald Trump has made illegal immigrants from Mexico and South America the enemy of America. He blames them for high crime and murder and now disease. All of that is lies. Illegal immigrant crime accounts for .1% of all crime in America. And there is no evidence illegal immigrants are bringing in any diseases. Illegal immigrants contribute more to the American economy than they cost.
When it comes to Illegal immigration it has been the Tea Party and the most conservative Republicans who have created this mess. Declaring no immigration reform with any form of a pathway to citizenship has prevented any reform. It is delusional to think that all illegal immigrants must leave the country and then apply to get back in. A wall is a 15th-century solution to a modern problem.
Donald Trump has used his Presidentcy to benefit his own family. His son was given a security clearance that he did not deserve. His daughter received lucrative Chinese patents.
Donald Trump took the side of the North Korean leader, the Russian leader and the Israeli leader over our own National Intelligence agencies.
Donald Trump has not given any proof to support his election fraud claim, no proof that his National Security declaration on Steel and Aluminum was warranted, No proof that any of his National Security declarations are valid. The only reason why he was not called out was the spineless Conservative Republican Congress and Senate. They fought President Obama over every breath he took and then they bend over and take whatever President Trump does.
After eight years of Conservative Republican hate-filled comments about the so-called "King Obama" and Hillary Clinton, I think your seriously delusional to think we could possibly respect Donald Trump and his loyal cultist.

He either enforces the laws on the books–as he was hired and elected to do–or he leaves Congress no option. This is not our choice, this is the President’s choice and I would advise him to uphold the law on the books.

But I think it's an important argument to make that there are a number of things this president has done in the overuse of the executive power, his complete ignoring of the law, even his own law.
