People that never liked or supported President Trump are now saying because of events in Virginia that have nothing to do with Trump that his Presidency is over. They could not be more wrong. These naysayers are deliberately taking what Trump said about those for or against removing statues of Confederates out of context. He said "there were fine people on both sides" about the proposed removal. He was not saying there are "fine people" among the Nazis and Ku Klux Klan. The President has numerous Jews in his own family and certainly does not have sympathy for Nazis.

Washington elite, the mainstream press, and even some former Trump insiders are trying to crucify Steve Bannon. They are doing this because Bannon knows the populist pulse of the American people and they do not want those workaday Americans to have Trump's ear or a voice in DC.

I am Jewish. Some of my family members were murdered by the Nazis. I absolutely despise Nazis. I am reading friends' social media posts saying that Nazis must not be allowed to speak in America. While I agree that what Nazis say is reprehensible, I have to say that those calling for depriving them of that right have little understanding of the US Constitution. Only controversial speech needs Constitutional protection. If I say "nice weather we're having", no one is going to try to stifle my speech. If I say "I love pasta", no one will try to silence me. If I say something utterly objectionable like "Hitler was right", many people might try to deny my right to speak. It is precisely that kind of inflammatory agitation that necessitates the First Amendment. To love the Constitution, occasionally means tolerating those with no tolerance for our values.

I had always heard "politics stop at the water's edge" meaning that America would present a unified foreign policy. I was aghast when I heard Democrats blaming President Trump for the situation in North Korea. At this time, the US most needs a united front, Democrats and their main stream media mouthpieces are not attacking the North Korean despot but their own President.

Huge swathes of today's Democrat leadership would gladly turn the United States into a "socialist paradise" like the one we see in Venezuela today. These Democrats are nothing like JFK or even Ed Koch. They hate achievers and want to tax them out of existence. How many times has a poor person hired you? If you put confiscatory taxes on the wealthy, they can not create the private sector employment they otherwise would and private sector employment has always stood a better chance of enriching people than anything "planned economies" have ever produced.

Is it not astoundingly sad that in Venezuela with tremendous natural resources, the socialist despots have ruined the country so badly that people are literally starving to death? Venezuela has some of the largest proven oil reserves in the world. There is no reason beyond atrocious mismanagement by government that Venezuelans should suffer the type of privation they have been forced to endure.

US Senators of both parties seem willing to work together, so long as it hurts President Trump and stymies his agenda. Huge majorities of Americans support the President on immigration, but instead of building walls and closing borders, US Senators are still pushing for an amnesty for illegal aliens.

During the campaign, now President Trump was characterized as a non-ideological pragmatist by Rush Limbaugh. I think that was good analysis. Trump was and is no ardent right winger. Trump has been demonized by many, and clearly does have a "huge" ego, but he has been governing as a moderate.

Washington elite from both parties are trying to tamp down Trump. The Federal Reserve that propped up Obama and his socialism is trying to knock down economic growth so Trump receives no accolades. The Wall Street press and supposed wizards like Greenspan are trying to knock the legs from the Trump stock rally, but so far all have failed because less regulation really means more economic freedom which always stimulates growth.
