The new “doctors”

Neil Cavuto seems to fancy himself a medical guru. Maybe he even believes he knows as much as doctors. Ha ha! His ego was certainly on display last night when he heatedly disagreed with President Trump’s opinion that hydroxychloriquin might help corona virus patients. Why did he think we cared what his opinion was? He is, at best, a reporter and we really do not need him pontificating about medical matters.

After all, there are as many doctors who believe hydroxychloriquin might be helpful as those who disagree with the efficacy of that drug. And, if Neil wants to be fair and balanced, why did he not bring back the doctor from Monday’s show who argued that hydroxychloriquin DOES HELP some patients? Despite her maintaining that it was proper to let the doctor and the patient decide, Neil continued to argue with her, too. And, he did NOT bring her back. Hmmmmmmmmmm

Other problems with Mr. Cavuto’s diatribe is that he isn’t considering all the other experts. Why is Mr Cavuto dismissing the White House doctor who prescribed it? Why is Cavuto ignoring what the head of the VA said about the critical problems with the “VA study”. Why is he ignoring that the study he references had 40% of patients who took hydroxychloriquin improving. He only says that 60% were not helped. Well, if you would be in the 40% group and someone offered you a potential remedy, I bet you would take the chance.

He also ignores the fact that those who gave the “results” of the VA study did not actually do the study nor did they bother to have it peer reviewed. Nor did they actually interview the patients to know what other problems they had. In fact, all of the patients of that VA study were already seriously ill. When Cavuto says that “some died!”, he might be correct. But, seriously ill patients dying is not a news flash. And, though it is tragic to hear of someone dying, they were a distinct minority of those studied.

Lastly, if the media’s golden boy, former President Obama, had mentioned taking hydroxychloriquin, the media would have thrown a ticker tape parade to honor him for his “courage” and his “willingness ” to take a drug that might harm him. They would have crowned him a hero for exposing himself to that danger!

But, Neil Cavuto has joined the media who are determined to destroy President Trump. They don’t care that President Trumphas created a historically good economy nor that his actions have improved almost everyone’s economic welfare. They don’t care that President Trump’s legacy will be one of health and wealth for America. They prefer to dwell on trivia.

Enough! Try to read your script and don’t ad lib. You’re just not good enough. You certainly don’t know enough to opine on medical matters1

If Neil wants to play doctor, let him go home and do it in the privacy of his own home. Quit pretending you know what is best for us because, most of us prefer to let our own doctor — a real doctor –advise US! And, maybe Mr. Cavuto should consider letting the White House doctor advice our President.


The doctor is in…..

But, America is still sick. But, I am not talking about the virus itself.

No. What is making me, and almost everyone else, sick is the stay-at-home order. I’m sick…..sick of not seeing our kids and grandkids…..sick of worrying about whether anyone we know will get sick, and, horror of horrors, die!  Sick of hearing about people out of work, out of money, and out of the great economic times we were living in before the corona virus hit. It is horrible to endure, but it was the right reaction to the world pandemic.

But, the way the media is acting, makes me even sicker! It, too, is horrible; however, it is NOT the right thing for them to do!

Here we are in the middle of what is probably the first pandemic that most of us have ever been through, and the “reporters” at the daily Press Briefings want to ask got’cha questions.  How awful that, rather than faithfully reporting the news to the American public, they seem to believe that their function is to make President Trump look as if he failed to protect America.

The truth is that President Trump acted before the world even acknowledged there might be a viral threat.  He assembled a corona virus task force with medical experts who have spent their life studying disease.  He signed a bill that would financially support those who were out of work when the virus threatened to explode all over America.  He hosts the corona virus task force every day in the briefing room and answers countless questions. 

And, yet, that is not enough for the “experts” who purport to give us the daily news.  My husband and I have watched all the task force briefings and, it always surprises us when we hear them detail what they heard at the briefing.  Seldom does their “reporting” match what we heard.  The subjects might be the same, but there is always a liberal slant to the story.  And, always, the slant insults the good work that President Trump, VP Mike Pence, and the task force, have done.

While there might not yet be a cure for the virus, there is a cure for the media’s obsession to destroy President Trump even when it harms our country and all Americans. That cure is to start listening to the task force’s informational meetings so we hear the real story and NOT the fictional accounts provided by CNN and MSNBC or PBS!

So, listen to the doctors on the task force who will give you the actual facts and not the gibberish those fake reporters will spew out. Listen to President Trump and Vice President Trump detail the progress of all the people working to stop the virus in its tracks.

Doctors adhere to the motto of “First, do no harm”. Maybe it’s time for reporters to try to do the same for our country.


Happy Easter

Easter represents new life. It represents a new beginning. It is a time to begin seeing the world in a new light and for us to begin acting more like we should.

Let’s hope that everyone will try to work together, even while this virus takes its toll on our friends, neighbors, and loved ones.

Politicians should stop bickering and work together for the common good.

Politicians should recognize that their job is to help unite us, not divide us nor to continually do harm to our country with unending assaults against President Trump.

Let this Easter be the beginning of a new era where we all join together and understand that Americans have dreams and aspirations that can only happen in America. And, America can only “happen” if we work together for a greater good.

Remember, united we stand and divided we fall.

E pluribus unum.


Innocent

It’s interesting to hear the Democrats try to spin their impeachment of President Trump into a conviction. “He’ll always be impeached!”, they vigorously shout.

Yes, that’s true.

And, of course, he’ll always be acquitted…..that is, innocent!

Impeachment is NOT a conviction. It is an accusation brought by the House; and, unfortunately, in this instance, by a completely partisan vote in the House. It is not a conviction. That is why an impeachment does NOT make a person guilty.

In America, a prosecutor can bring charges against someone, anyone. BUT, that person is still presumed innocent until a court convicts that person.

The impeachment process begins with the House bringing charges against the President. And, just like every other American, the President starts out with the presumption of INNOCENCE.

The U.S. Senate adjudicates the charges and, in this matter, voted to ACQUIT, thus proving the President was NOT GUILTY.

So, President Trump was innocent when impeachment began. He was innocent throughout the Senate trial. And, after the Senate voted to acquit him, President Trump remained INNOCENT.

If the House Managers, lawyers themselves, truly accept how our legal system works and how the process of impeachment is carried out, they know that President Trump was, and is, innocent. They can spin it any way they want. They can mutter in their sleep and on tv — as Nancy Pelosi did — but, the fact remains that the President is innocent of any wrong doing. And, the millions of dollars and hundreds of hours wasted in concocting meaningless charges simply to bring an impeachment do not change the end result ……………….PRESIDENT TRUMP IS INNOCENT.

Just like you or me………….innocent, innocent, innocent.


Silence is Golden…..

A contract is a binding agreement between two, or more, parties which binds all the parties to the agreement with following certain terms or conditions. An NDA is a contract that, usually, restricts what one of the parties can say or do after the contract is signed. An NDA almost always concludes with one party receiving a payment for which they agree to never reveal what the issue in the contract actually says. Many term such contracts to be “pay offs” for someone’s silence.

But, an NDA is a binding agreement for which one party probably received a lot of money. And, because it is a valid contract, it is supposed to be enforced for the duration of the terms of the contract which frequently means “forever”.

Colin Kapernick reportedly received a huge sum because it was cheaper to pay him off than go through the court process. I disagreed with any payoff to him because it certainly seemed as if he didn’t honor the terms of his NFL contract. But, Kapernick got the PC crowd behind him, and was paid to end any further litigation.

Now, Gretchen Carlson believes that she should be free to speak about her allegations of sexual harassment and that ALL who accused their boss of such harassment should be free to speak publicly about the alleged harassment. Wouldn’t Monica Lewinsky have loved to receive something monetary for her proven allegations against then President Clinton? How the times change!

The problem is that Gretchen, and the others, agreed to be NOT sue for harassment in return for a sum of money. There was a valid contract. She received an agreed upon amount of money. That was the contract which she signed.

Now, Gretchen is not offering to return the money she was paid, nor to pay the interest that money would have accrued to whoever paid it. No. She wants her cake (the money) and she wants to eat that cake, too. The question is why should she be able to negate the terms of her contract and also keep the money she was paid?

If she didn’t like the contract, she was free at that time to reject it and speak her mind. But, no. She waited until now to publicly criticize the very contract that she agreed to.

Boy. Silence was Golden for her back then. Now, she wants to keep the “gold” and speak out.

Whether her allegations were honest or not is a moot point. The fact is that she willingly signed a contract and took money for signing that contract. No one should be allowed to back out of a contract just because they want to.

Silence is Golden because…..well…..silence is part of the deal. So, Gretchen, my dear. Time for you to act like a mature adult and realize that your deal — you know, the one you signed and took money for — is binding. And just because you don’t like it now does not give you the right to challenge its authority.

Unless……………….you repay the money, with interest………..AND, have the agreement of the other parties to the contract sign off on your new “deal”.

Otherwise, be quiet. A deal is a deal. Silence is Golden for a reason.


I’d RATHER not!

I’d rather not believe Dan Rather, that is.

Once again, Dan is doing his best to sway an electorate! He is showing his Lie-beral colors again. But, why do Lie-berals feel the need to label Conservatives and then reject those they have labeled?

Dan Rather just said that Trump supporters are a cult! (https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/11/17/dan-rather-trumps-support-is-a-cult-and-cults-generally-dont-end-well)

Really? Remember Danny Boy Rather? He tried to bring down President George W Bush, # 43, by promoting false allegations. For that, he lost his job. Now, he hopes to bring down President Trump by demonizing Trump supporters.

I don’t think that Democrats nor the media understand the anger such derogatory labels promote. Dems want to lump all Trump supporters into a bunch so they can label us and then insult us. However, if you watch Trump rallies, his supporters come in all colors, shapes and sizes. So, one label is NOT going to fit us all.

I’m proud to say my husband and I support President Trump. And, I’m proud of those who refuse to be intimidated by libs. I’m proud that Trump supporters know that the impeachment effort by Schiff and his ilk is a long-shot strategy of trying to put labels of our President and then, hoping the American voter will believe the lies and innuendoes.

So, do not believe someone like Dan Rather who already is known to be guilty of malfeasance. Believe President Trump who is doing exactly what he promised to do…..and, that is, make America Great AGAIN.


“Perkin’ ” along…………….

Joni Ernst successfully passed legislation which limits the amount of taxpayer money that former Presidents can receive after serving their term.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/17/house-passes-jody-hice-joni-ernsts-presidential-perks-bill/

This is great news for every American. Most politicians earn more than enough while they serve in office AND, especially, with their lobbying and speech income after leaving office. Former President Clinton is one who made out like a bandit after leaving office with speaking engagements. Another way to make hay out of having served is exemplified by Paul Ryan of Wisconsin….now Washington, D.C. …….who has a plush job on the Murdock team, thanks to his being in the House of Representatives.

It is ridiculous, and immoral, that legislators from any branch of the government can continue to receive “pensions” and other benefits after being so well paid while in office. It is past time to end these perks for everyone in a political office. SO…………why not pass the same restrictions for ALL OF CONGRESS?!

Let’s keep “perking along” by ending these perks to public servants which the self-serving Congress routinely approves for themselves!


Your Lyin’ Eyes

Democrats have jumped on every possible pretext to scream that President Trump should be impeached. There is no need to list the debacles that befell the Dems when they insisted that the Russian collusion story would be the downfall of his Presidency. No need to list unless you have been listening to CBS, NBC, MSNBC or CNN. Their breathless exclamations regarding each and every potential disaster have been systematically reduced to the gibberish that the “news” was to begin with.

So, to even the playing field with the Truth, there was no collusion between Mr. Trump and his team with Russia. General Flynn caved to the onslaught against him, but he only do so after they threatened his family and Flynn had no resources left to fight with. They harried countless good men and women out of serving our country with half truths and innuendoes which the main media distributed ad nauseum. Forget that these were salacious lies that only fed the reporters’ egos and the networks’ desire for anything to titillate the public.

Gone is any sense that reporters’ true job is to report facts. Their mission should not be to color a story to fit their own opinions or own agenda. But, the idea of reporting being an honest profession is long gone. Nowadays, reporters are known for their political bias and their stories reflect that. They are unapologetic in their hatred of President Trump. And, because the media owns the “mouthpieces” , that is the airwaves, it is difficult to bring any rationality to today’s “news”.

So, when Rep Schiff proclaimed that he had proof positive of Mr. Trump colluding with Russia to win the election, few in the media asked him to prove it. When, after demanding that a transcript of the phone call between the Ukraine President and President Trump be released to the public — and, it was, Schumer says that the transcript is not as critical as what the whistle blower had to say. A whistleblower who, by his own admission, never heard the actual phone call. His complaints were based on “sources” at the White House! No media outlet asked Schumer why a non-participant’s opinion of a conversation that he did not hear was more critical than the actual transcript.

It is no surprise that many of us have turned off the news and tuned out of the constant barrage against President Trump. After all the lies, innuendoes, false stories, and obvious attempts to destroy Mr. Trump, we find that we are more and more inclined to believe the outspoken President than a bunch of nattering, back-stabbing reporters who, along with many Democrats, have no concern for the damage their fallacious stories are doing to our country.

It is inconceivable why our elected representatives are hell bent on destroying President Trump and, with him, our country. Their constant attacks give our enemies comfort because the enemies realize we are a divided people.

So, I say to the Democrats, “Stop this ridiculous attempt to satisfy your own egos with the impeachment of President Trump. Get busy on what we sent you to Washington to do. And, for God’s sake, close your mouths and listen to what the American people say they want!”

Else, your lyin’ eyes will destroy all that is good in America!


Out of the mouth of babes……

This Biblical phrase tells us that sometimes, innocents know and speak only the truth. That is why a child is often more believable than an adult. The child has not learned to obfuscate, lie, or mislead. Hence, an innocent child speaks the truth, regardless of the consequences.

Out of the mouths of babes might be one way to find the Truth, but only if the children have not been brainwashed, either by experience or their community. Once indoctrination has begun, it is difficult to know if children are speaking the Truth, or someone else’s “truth”.

To my way of thinking, there are too many children receiving media attention because the children have been taught a certain, ideological view point. I’m thinking of David Hogg who feels that his own, personal experience gives him the right to lecture everyone else on gun control. Though 19, he has been the media’s sweetheart for several years, long before he could possibly have understood all the ramifications of gun control and Constitutional issues. Yes, he had a traumatic experience, but that experience might also have disproportionately influenced his opinions. His youthful approach, as with most advocates for gun control, reflects the theory that only he knows the truth. Anyone who disagrees with his stance HAS to be wrong, simply because he is right.

Greta Thunberg is another child whom the media is cultivating because she is on the march against climate warming. That opinion is very popular in Sweden and, of course, the liberal media gloms onto her and her viewpoint because………..she has the same ideas as they do. It’s sad to see a child cynically used for the benefit of a political issue, yet the press has no compunction about using, and abusing, even children. And, expecting a child to be the spokesperson for anything is, indeed, child abuse.

Normally, we encourage children to be aware of their world and to learn and listen as they grow up so they can be responsible adults. The problem with these two is that they have NOT grown up yet and, thus, are being used by the media in a very cavalier and debasing manner simply to advance PC issues. It is another example of the main stream media promoting their own causes, only this time, by exploiting children and their fears. And, worse, adults are expected to bow at the knee of these two, juvenile “experts”.

CNN and MSNBC and NBC need to start doing some homework and actually studying issues before giving a breathless, dramatic headline. And, certainly, any story worth telling should have its basis in facts. Neither David Hogg nor Greta Thunberg are old enough nor educated enough to be lecturing society on anything. David seems to be scarred by the horrific event he lived through. And Greta, well, who knows if her parents or community are instigating her public comments? At any rate, neither can be considered objective observers.

To stop this foolish reliance on a mere child, we need to insist that the media stop hyping the ridiculous idea that children should choose how society lives, or even, how government should react to what are, after all, important issues. Let’s insist that the media report facts and not merely the regurgitation of a popular ideology. And, to have that happen, we must hear from adults, not children.


So, what else is new?

Just a little less than two months ago, I chastised Democrats for their never-ending name calling of President Trump, his supporters, Republican, and, anything Conservative. That was June 9th, 2019.

Now, in the aftermath of two more, unprovoked and heart-wrenching shooting sprees, the Democrats are going all out in blaming President Trump. It reminds me of that Biblical passage about looking for the mote in your own eye before calling out someone else. But, for them, it is always easier to look for someone else to blame rather than the effect of what they have said or done.

If the Democrats were at all concerned about the country and not their own political career, they would be consoling the survivors, not taking trying to gain an advantage from the deaths of the innocents. If the Democrats truly wanted to heal the divisions in this country, they would be asking their constituents, their legislative partners, and, primarily, their own heart about how to stop these tragedies. But, no. For them, accusing another is part of their stock and trade, politically speaking, of course.

Too bad they don’t take a lesson from the young man who asked people to honor El Paso’s victim by doing 22 acts of kindness.

But, that would be asking Democrats to completely overhaul their modus operandi. They would have to forget what is politically expedient and to consider that their own name calling and hateful accusations are creating more hate and more potential heart break for America.

And, that is like asking a leopard to change his spots. Democrats are just not going to stop trying to tear down President Trump with their own despicable words. I guess I hoped they would be better than this. But, ignoring their own failings and using derogatory names against political opponents is so ingrained in their psyche that this terrible habit will continue to be their “issue” of the day. It’s been this way for many years and will continue to be so.

So, what else is new?
