French’s response to criticisms like mine is to say that Trump is not pro-life even if his policies and judicial appointees were. This is, to quote French, a “miserable political take.” I’ve long heard similar arguments about the Roman Emperor Constantine’s conversion to Christianity and the Edict of Milan which he issued in 313 A.D. declaring his chosen faith a religio licita (“tolerated religion”). He wasn’t really a Christian, some historians say. That may be. But for the sake of his soul, the point is irrelevant. The fact is, Constantine’s policy ended almost two centuries of Christian persecution. Yet in French’s moral universe, Constantine is no better than Nero, and Trump is not to be preferred to Biden.So incensed was French by the prospects of a Trump presidency (not a Biden presidency if word count is any indicator) that he considered his own presidential run. Since Trump lacked “character and competence,” French decided America needed a man like, well, himself. This is a bit like Marshal Philippe Pétain saying he would give France “The gift of his person.” Don’t be fooled by the niceties. French has just the sort of monumental hubris he decries in the former president, it’s just that Trump makes no effort to hide his own. In the end, French decided to forego the Oval Office and instead use his platform at National Review to attack Trump and his supporters — not Biden and his. (You know, the ones who were burning cities and sentencing your grandmother to a lonely death in isolation.)In an article titled “How to be Pro-Life in Biden’s America,” French wrings his hands over the now-imperiled Hyde Amendment, which prevents an estimated 50,000 additional abortions per year. 50,000 human lives, not abstractions. In the column, he tries to reassure Christians disturbed by what a Biden presidency means for the unborn:“In the days and weeks since Biden’s election, I’ve heard a number of Christians express genuine anguish about the prospects for defending life during the Biden administration. Make no mistake, there is cause for deep concern about the administration’s policies.”“Cause for deep concern.” Ya think, David? This is the political and cultural Armageddon that people like French have given us. They brought us here. His whole article reads like it was written by someone who aided arsonists in burning your house down but who now wants to offer you the comfort of his counsel, all the while never comprehending the hypocrisy of his actions.

Conservatism is not a little clubhouse where only a certain few are given the password to get in with [by people like French].When Romney ran i plugged my nose and voted for him because the alternative was worse. When McCain ran i plugged my nose and voted for him because, again, the alternative was worse. i know people sometimes write in a candidate or stay home on principle. Unfortunately i don’t think it helps the cause. The alternative IS worse. If we can’t get the better choice into office we can at least limit the damage.
I agreed with Trump on almost every issue even his style if that’s what you want to call it.The one exception was re same sex marriage. Trump was more accepting than most conservatives including myself and definitely opposed to Catholic and evangelical teachings; on the other hand it took the issue off the table and Trump at the least stood up for the freedom to oppose it. I doubt having the issue on the table would have changed its ‘legalization’ anyway. We have a huge battle on the issue of abortion and given a choice between the 2-homosexual marriage and abortion-i believe we win more ground on the life issues. While homosexual behavior is grave it does not take the life of the unborn. We just have to make sure that the person we elect is willing to protect OUR RIGHT not to accept same sex ‘marriage.’.When you force people to violate their conscience that is a problem. Trump never did that. He just didn’t discuss the issue on the campaign trail; he only let it be known it was not a problem for him personally. To Trump’s credit he was the most PRO LIFE president we have had to date.
Thank God he was elected. The powers that be would have taken down another man one way or the other by getting them to compromise or totally destroying them. Not that they haven’t tried with Trump. Trump had what none of other candidates had; 1. he was not beholden to anyone. He did not accept money from special interests AND NEVER backed down to the media. He flat out went after them. I’ve never seen anyone who ran for office stand up to them like he did! 2. he was not tied to the establishment (uniparty) 3. he’s not the kind of person to roll over for anyone.On the down side it looks like hubris and it probably is. On the up side he had the spine to stand up to the worst assaults.
Conservatism has 3 camps. Some Republicans are fiscal conservatives and liberals on the social issues. Other Republicans are on the flip side. Not so conservative when it comes to economic policy but very resolute when it comes to the social issues like abortion. Then there’s the Republicans who are conservative first and Republican 2nd. They’re conservative on the economic AND social issues. In order to win elections Republicans have to bring all 3 to the table and hopefully pull in some Democrats. Rarely does a presidential candidate win if they can’t pull in people outside the base.Trump was able to do it in spades.
Trump is not driven by ideology. He’s driven by competent governance and results. Once he became pro life (for whatever reason)he defended life like no other so i can’t say he is not a man of principle either. Evidently it means something to him. You have to admit he did what needed to be done come hell or high water and a lot of both came at him.
Was he perfect? Nope. Was he a flawless man? Nope . The hypocritical left were good at pointing that out and so were the Never Trumpers. i do recall one King David who committed adultery and had the woman’s husband sent into battle deliberately in the hopes it would get him killed (it did). It doesn’t excuse the behavior but it does speak to the truth that God can use wounded people to accomplish His will. (We are all wounded people). i will say this; Trump respected the office. He didn’t do anything there he would have to be ashamed of.
Did Trump make some strategical mistakes [ie he should have canned Wray and declared Antifa/BLM riots an insurrection]? Absolutely but i have to admit i didn’t know how deep and wide the swamp was either. The last 4-5 yrs have been a real eye opener. We’ve never had a president who didn’t make some mistakes of varying consequence, We always will. Biden has done far worse than just make some mistakes. He’s proven to be just plain incompetent and lacking the mental capacity to make any good decisions; plus he’s corrupt to the core.
Now here we are stuck with Biden; someone some of the Never Trumpers admitted to voting for. They better never speak to us about principle or what ‘true’ conservatism is again. Look at the Republicans who voted forTrump’s impeachment.Look at the Republicans who cave to the Democrats when the going gets tough.
Look at George W Bush. Never said a peep when Obama was President. He hasn’t said squid about Biden either. i voted for Bush twice. He claimed when Obama was elected, a former President shouldn’t comment on the President currently in office. He didn’t practice that principle when Trump was in office.There are times he should have spoken out about Obama’s policies and definitely should speak up against the Marxism and corruption in our government now. Nope. Not a peep.
it’s obvious Joe is not fit for the office. He’s mentally incapable but he is also corrupt. Jake Tapper has some nerve. it was saint media that helped get Joe into office.
China owns Joe. Hunter’s lap top proves it.

CNN host Jake Tapper was seemingly shocked this week when he reported on Joe Biden’s sinking poll numbers.During a segment Tuesday night on CNN’s “The Lead,” Tapper called Biden’s slumping approval rating “brutal.”“These new poll numbers are frankly brutal for the president,” Tapper said.
My next question is, what is there about Biden to defend? After the media pulled the Russia Hoax on you for 4 yrs do you really buy all the crap that told you about President Trump? You mean they lied to your for 4 yrs, actually helped the cabal perpetrate the collusion hoax and you still think they’re not feeding you lies? Do you have any clue what really happened when Trump got elected or you just don’t care? You’re willing to participate in your own demise?
See the flood of people at the border? Those are the people who are going to replace you in the voting booth.If it ever comes down to your desire to elect someone the Democrat establishment doesn’t they aren’t going to care. They won’t need you. They rig it against their own let alone the other party.
You do know Biden abandoned our people behind enemy lines-they are in grave danger-but he looked you right in the eye and said they would get everyone out. They didn’t and now he hasn’t said a word has he? Know why-he doesn’t care. Did that ever occur to you? Then he tells you Trump was getting out too so it was his fault. Did the media bother to tell you about the conditional agreement Trump had? I’ve read it and can tell you the media deliberately left that out of Biden’s narrative.
Doesn’t it rankle you one little bit that the media pounded the Russia Hoax for 4 yr when they knew it was a lie yet when the Hunter Biden laptop story was about to break it was censored? They made sure you didn’t hear about it until AFTER the election. That doesn’t bother you?
I love when i go on Twitter and read your tweets about Trump being racist.
Before Trump ran for office People magazine ran this story: https://people.com/celebrity/donald-trump-shelters-jennifer-hudson/
You people do know he dated a lady that was bi-racial? She talked about her relationship with Trump to First Edition.
i would guess you don’t know that the media deliberately edited his Charlottes comments? https://time.com/4899813/donald-trump-charlottes-ville-remarks-transcript/
When Antifa and BLM were burning down our cities, attacking police, assaulting innocent people and even murdering some the media was silent in asking for condemnations from the Democrats. There were none. Both groups made their intentions clear; they were intent on getting Trump out of office. They said so. That’s an insurrection but you never heard the Democrats condemn them. Why? Because they were on the same side. The media called them ‘mostly peaceful protestors.’ They raised funds to bail them out.
What a difference between that and the aggressiveness towards Jan 6 and calling that an insurrection when it didn’t even come close to everything Antifa and BLM had done.
Now the Biden admin has instructed the DOJ and FBI to go after parents who protest their own school boards calling them domestic terrorists. If you’re ok with all this there is really something wrong with you.
It gets worse because with this weak failed so called President in the oval office China and all our enemies have been emboldened. You said Trump would start a war. Remember that? i’m sorry to say that was all bunk and now we really are on the verge of WWIII thanks to Biden.
You’re warned here.
It‘s not socialism. It’s Marxism and it aint pretty. It never ends well. China owns Joe.
i also recall you people calling Trump a nazi all the time when his daughter, son in law and grandchild are all Jewish. You called him Hitler and Biden is the one going after ordinary citizens who exercise their right to protest. Eventually you’ll be next but if this isn’t stopped now, you won’t be able to stop it then.
Time is running out liberals. This is your warning. i’d heed it before the country that afforded you the liberty to be stupid is going to take away your rights as much as ours. For those that think it can’t happen here i hope you can see the parallels to Venezuela and realize yes it can.
I have no patience for you people anymore. If you’re ok with everything the Biden people and the media have done [and are doing]there’s no hope for you at all. You’re ok with being lied to and used.
Fox News host Jesse Watters broke ranks at the network and spoke about the election audit that took place in Maricopa County, Arizona.During a segment on his Fox program, Watters began discussing the immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, corruption at the FBI, Hunter Biden’s shady business deals, and many other scandals to make a point about lawmakers and politicians being “all talk and no action.”“The F.B.I. exposed again this week for odious corruption. The I.G. report found the Bureau systematically lied and tricked the FISA Court for years into getting warrants to spy on American citizens. They faked evidence, hid evidence, abused our privacy, and the media again hiding this sleaze from the country,” Watters began.
“Jim Comey signed off on all of it. But the most corrupt F.B.I. Chief since Hoover skedaddled with a Fed book deal and just basked in the glow of left-wing worship. That’s the retirement package when you run the resistance,” he continued.
“They’re throwing it in our faces now. POLITICO just confirmed Hunter Biden’s laptop was legit, and that’s how you rig a vote. Run the October surprise a year after the election,” he said.
“So Biden lied, the family was in business with the Chinese communists and they were holding 10 for the big guy. Don’t hold your breath for a prosecution. So, there’s a dangerous pattern in the United States. Politicians, prosecutors, and the press are abusing their power to wage political warfare against innocent people. And even when the abuse is exposed, the press runs cover for the conspiracy,” he said.
Watters then mentioned the audit.
“In Arizona, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by 11,000 votes. An audit in Maricopa County done by an outside firm found 57,000 questionable ballots just in that one county. The media wasn’t interested in this, and the audit wasn’t as thorough as it could have been because Arizona officials wouldn’t fully cooperate and some evidence was removed and destroyed,” he said.
“We’re picking it apart, but we need more honest Americans on the inside run for office, be a reporter. I’d tell you to be a lawyer, but this country does not need any more lawyers, just the right ones in the right places. So, get it right — or be a judge,” Watters declared.
“We can’t win the battle from the outside. You know what you need to do,” he concluded before speaking with Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz.

Because the Election was rigged, and America now has weak and corrupt leadership, we may very well end up in a war with China who no longer respects the USA. They witnessed firsthand our television generals’ complete surrender to the Taliban with the loss of 13 great Warriors and the handing over of $85 billion of the best and most expensive Military equipment in the World—China and Russia are already reverse engineering the equipment so they can build it for themselves. The only thing the Radical Left Democrats, who are destroying our Nation, are good at is rigging Elections and criminal activity, while always blaming the other side through corrupt prosecutors and prosecutions. Our Country is in big trouble—we better get going fast!
Vice President Mike Pence’s statement during his interview with the great Sean Hannity very much destroys and discredits the Unselect Committees Witch Hunt on the events of January 6th. It will continue anyways, however, because the Fake News doesn’t want to focus on Afghanistan, Russia, Taiwan and China, the Border, inflation, and a failing economy.
Looks like Mitch McConnell is folding to the Democrats, again. He’s got all of the cards with the debt ceiling, it’s time to play the hand. Don’t let them destroy our Country!
