COMMON SENSE: In football, it’s always a good thing when the coach yells at you because, when he stops yelling, it means he has made a decision about you that you are no longer worth coaching. Thus, in an interesting way, being scolded in sports is very affirming.
The same thing is true in politics. I have been particularly hard on Governor Kemp the past few days because of his desire to appoint Kelly Loeffler to fill Senator Isakson’s seat. Like President Trump, I want Kemp to name Rep. Doug Collins to the position.
Kemp, who thinks Kelly will help recapture female voters in GA, is determined to appoint Loeffler, even though she’s a RINO at best. I want Collins because he has what it takes to be a floor general in support of Trump in the Senate, much like Lindsay Graham from SC. In the past, Georgia has always had a strong Conservative voice in the Senate, which Collins is capable of continuing. Loeffler probably isn’t.
I’m not going to criticize kemp any more though. He’s not worth the effort, nor is he capable of being what we need in Georgia. Like many others, I will be looking for a new candidate to challenge Kemp when he runs for reelection. I have zero intention of supporting him, not after this.

COMMON SENSE: Governor Brian Kemp is a political imbecile. We had to beat Stacy Abrams so I supported him, but he is a clueless buffoon.
Kemp needs to appoint Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) to fill the Senate seat of Johnny Isakson who is retiring for health reasons. Collins can defeat whoever the Democrats run against him, but Kemp, fool that he is, wants to appoint Kelly Loeffler, a man nobody knows. Kemps wants this so badly that he secretly flew to the White House to lobby for his choice.
Trump, who has the best political instincts I have ever seen, couldn’t be swayed, but that doesn’t mean that our Governor, who could not have won without Trump, will do what needs to be done. If anybody has any influence with out low IQ Governor, tell him to appoint Collins, who would make an outstanding Senator. Sorry to be so blunt, but this decision may make the difference between the Republicans retaining control of the Senate and relinquishing it to Schumer.

COMMON SENSE: When you are motivated by malice and revenge, as the cynically devious Rep. Adan Schiff (D-CA) is, then you must go to extraordinary lengths to justify your actions. Schiff, whose impeachment efforts are backfiring, maintains that Republicans will have to explain to their children and grandchildren why they refused to remove President Trump from office.
I don’t need to wait. I’ll explain right here and now why I do not support the efforts of Pelosi, Schiff Nadler and the Squad. It’s because they have manufactured the current crisis. They have been looking for something since 2016, but what they found is trivial, not illegal, and a waste of time and energy.
Trump, although clearly unorthodox, has turned our economy around. Instead of supporting impeachment, I support a second term for him based on his record of accomplishments. Let Schiff whine all he wants, it makes no difference to me. What I want is four more years.

COMMON SENSE: Since President Trump has taken office, new numbers indicate that the U.S. economy has grown by $11.3 trillion. That’s an increase of just over six months of our annual GDP. By any standard, this is outstanding, and the average American worker is the greatest beneficiary of this added wealth.
The Democrats would have you believe that only the top 1 percent are enjoying this prosperity, but this simply isn’t true. In the USA, 55 million have 401k’s and and additional 35 million have IRA’s. These eighty million have seen their retirement income increase by 30-to-40 percent since Trump became President.
If the House Democrats would do their jobs and pass the USMCA, our economy would even do better, but they won’t, will they? Instead, they are obsessed with removing Trump from office over a phone call. They are obsessing over a pimple rather than enjoying the beauty of the face, mean-spirited fools that they are. To ensure our prosperity, it is time to flip the House.

COMMON SENSE: If ratified, the USMCA trade agreement is so significant that it would add a point to the USA’s GDP. That would equate to about $1 trillion in added wealth. It would also add close to 200,000 additional jobs. The deal is completely done and has been for more than six months. All that is necessary for it to go into effect is for the House of Representatives to take up the bill and pass it. If they do, it will quickly become law.
There is no opposition to the USMCA. The Democrats want and need it as much as the Republicans do. Mexico and Canada have already ratified it. So, all that is needed is for the House to do its job, but they refuse to do it. The USMCA is just sitting there waiting for Speaker Pelosi to take it up, but she hasn’t, has she?
Why hasn’t she? There are two reasons. First, to ratify the USMCA would give President Trump a victory, which she definitely doesn’t want to do. That it would benefit farmers and workers is beside the point. Denying Trump is more important than benefitting Americans, Mexicans and Canadians, at least to House Democrats like Speaker Pelosi.
Second, the House is so consumed with its lust for impeachment that there is no time or inclination to do anything else. Because this is true, the USMCA languishes along with everything else. All that is important is getting Trump by whatever means possible, including trying to throw him out of office for a phone call.
America needs legislators who are willing to do their jobs rather than becoming so obsessed with President Trump that they refuse to do their jobs. Since becoming the majority, the Democratic House has not done one thing to help the American people . . . not one! If I’m wrong, name what they have done.

COMMON SENSE: The day after Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election, “The Resistance” began. Its one goal was to remove Trump from office, by whatever means possible, while simultaneously destroying his ability to govern in the process.
Their opposition was not resistance in the traditional sense of the word. It was being the “loyal opposition” that those of us who opposed President Obama ascribed to, when we criticized his failed policies. What Trump’s Resistance was and has been since the very beginning is a group of committed Deep State operatives in league with the Leftwing media to use every means possible, whether legal or illegal, to destroy his Presidency.
But why do they hate Trump so badly? It’s because he is not one of them, and he is doing everything in his considerable power to fulfill his campaign promises. This is why he is loved and championed by the people but loathed and feared by the governmental and media elites.
Since day one, those of us who have supported the President have been on the defensive. First, we were scolded into revering Mueller’s professional integrity, only to learn nearly three years later that the man’s mind is on the senility continuum. Now, we are being told that it is dishonorable to criticize Lt. Colonel Vindman—the man behind the whistleblower—because of his service to the country. We have been told this by the same people who had absolutely no trouble destroying the life of General Michael Flynn in an unsuccessful effort to hurt Trump.
Now, with their focus-group impeachment effort headed for trial in the Senate, The Resistance may believe that they have won, but this is an illusion. Trump will not be removed from office. Instead, he will be rewarded with a resounding 2020 victory, while the Durham investigation methodically ferrets out the criminal elements of The Resistance. I hope many end up doing hard time for their crimes.

COMMON SENSE: I watched Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman’s testimony yesterday in its entirety. Knowing he is the man behind the impeachment hearings and the man who initially informed the whistleblower, I wanted to know precisely what he had to say. I also wanted to get a feel for the man.
Let me say I was not impressed. Despite his uniform and his puffed up countenance, what i saw was another disgruntled employee. His self-importance and his desire to make his role appear to be more than it was spoke volumes about the man.
In dealing with Ukraine, President Trump didn’t follow the script set out for him by Vindman and others. That Trump didn’t was an unforgivable breach of what was normal for Vindman, so he felt justified in trying to bring down the administration. That Vindman had so many of his superiors who questioned his motivations let me know that the Lieutenant Colonel is not a man to be trusted.
Nevertheless, even Vindman was forced to admit that the President never committed bribery or any other crime. This entire fiasco is destined to do nothing other than divide us further than we already are.
