161534_100003471255753_672416768_nCOMMON SENSE: Having to face relentless daily attacks by the bitter mainstream media is the new normal for us. This is not going to change. Regardless of how successful President Trump’s agenda is, as long as he is President, he is going to be hounded by a hostile press. This will test his resolve, and it will test ours as well.
 
It will help to start thinking of Trump like Nehemiah, who rebuilt the wall to Jerusalem, while simultaneously having to ward off repeated attacks by his adversaries. Trump is having to do the same thing, which means we have to redouble our efforts to undergird his Presidency with prayer and immovable support. We must stand in the breach of the wall and fight with him to protect our nation from the Progressives.
 
The future of America depends on it. We must not allow the constant naysaying of the Progressives in the media to wear us down. Our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren are depending on us to remain faithful.

COMMON SENSE: President Trump knows what kind of man Comey really is. This is why he waited for Comey to be in Los Angeles to fire him. What looked thoughtless to most was actually orchestrated very carefully.

 
While Comey was away from his office and completely unaware of what was going to happen, the DOJ delivered a letter to the FBI terminating Comey. Then, they removed everything from the Director’s office. So, if Comey took notes about others, the DOJ has them—tapes too. It’s what the Tweet about tapes was all about.
 
Comey’s goal was to entrap Trump into Obstruction so that Trump would be forced to resign, but Trump was too smart to allow that to happen. Comey is part of the Deep State and had to go. Trump cannot Drain the Swamp with Comey in charge of the FBI.
 
All of this is going to get very interesting. Better buy some Pepsid Complete. This may sound crazy to you, but it’s not. Also, I’m not suicidal.

COMMON SENSE: Surprisingly, so far in his Presidency, Donald Trump, the successful businessman, has been more successful in foreign policy than he has with his domestic agenda. There is a reason for this.
 
Other nations worldwide, having been adversely impacted by the absence of American leadership under Obama, are anxious for our new President to restore order throughout the world, which he is doing. In the Middle East, President Trump has gained the cooperation of fifty Muslim nations to fight terror at the grassroots. In Asia, he has confronted North Korea head on, and has also eased tensions with China—no small task.
 
Now, he is in Belgium, addressing the problems of NATO, our primary alliance in the world. At this point, 24 of our 29 partners are not keeping their commitments to spend 2% of GDP on defense, while we are increasing our indebtedness by spending nearly 4% to defend them. Instead of begging our allies to pay their fair share, like George W. Bush and Barack Obama did, Trump should demand that they pay up or leave the alliance. That will get their attention. Why should we pay for defending them, when we are in debt and they are thriving?
 
Trump’s domestic agenda isn’t doing as well, primarily because the Progressive Democrats have forced him to remain on the defense. Led by the media, who have viciously opposed Trump and everything he wants, Trump hasn’t gained the traction he needs to move us forward. Despite this, so far this quarter, our growth rate is above 4%, something Obama never came close to achieving.

th-2COMMON SENSE: The mainstream media has charged that the 1st Amendment is under attack because President Trump calls their reporting “Fake News,” but is the press’ assertion accurate? I don’t think so.
 
First, Trump gives the press more access to him than any President in recent history, and the White House holds daily press briefings. Second, unlike Obama, Trump hasn’t used the power of his office to squelch reporters he holds in disdain, which is what Obama did to Fox News’ James Rosen. Third, the press corps accompanies the President, wherever he goes, on Air Force One. So, why does the press insist there is a problem?
 
It’s because President Trump does not, and will not, submit to the press’ way of thinking. Trump refuses to submit to their “Totalitarianism of Thought.” Instead, he ridicules it, calling it “Fake News.”
 
Because Trump is not a Progressive, his worldview is not the same as the Washington media’s. Its entirely different. Trump is not a Globalist, which the members of the media are. He puts America first; the media doesn’t. Trump wants growth, a strong military, and strong borders, none of which are highly valued by the media.
 
So, when they say that the 1st Amendment is under attack, it simply means that Trump will not knuckle under to the media’s way of thinking. Thank God he doesn’t. I like this about Trump.

COMMON SENSE: It’s no secret that the Democrats and the Leftwing Media have been relentless in their criticism of President Trump’s America first agenda. Their attack has been vicious and personal, and it has gone unchecked for too long.

 
The one promise that Candidate Trump made that has made no progress, however, at least as far as I can tell, is his commitment to Drain the Swamp. This needs to change, and it needs to change immediately.
 
The criminals from the Obama administration who have undermined our national security for profit need to be held to account, including people from the White House. Endless investigations about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting of Conservatives, and the Bowe Bergdahl deal have never been finalized or brought to prosecution. This is unacceptable. The Swamp must be drained.
 
Now, the ill-advised Iran Nuclear Deal has taken a sinister turn that may involve criminality on the part of President Obama as well as Hillary Clinton. It involves seven men, six of whom were Iranians. While under indictment for espionage by Obama’s own Department of Justice, Obama had them spirited away in the middle of the night and returned to Iran. He told the American people they were businessmen, which was a lie—Obama’s specialty.
 
This incident, like all the others, needs to be pursued like a spurned wife pursues her ex-husband for alimony. Drain the Swamp, Mr. President. You promised you would. Do it now.

thCOMMON SENSE: There is a reason why President Trump’s foreign policy is proving to be more effective than his domestic agenda—at least so far. When the Commander-in-Chief gives an order, it is obeyed, and when the Commander-in-Chief does not micromanage, our military, being the best in the world by far, oyr armed forces can definitely get the job done.
 
There’s another reason too. The world is starved for American leadership. After years of fecklessness, vacillation, and incompetence, our allies are thrilled to see America take a strong stand once again. The vacuum created by Obama’s retreat emboldened our enemies, especially ISIS, Russia, Iran, and North Korea. Now, to put a halt to this, President Trump is demonstrating just how powerful we actually are. This will ultimately re-stabilize the world, but not in the short-term.
 
Domestically, President Trump is being confronted with repeated attacks by the mainstream media, obstructionist Democrats, and Republicans who talk-the-talk but do not walk-the-walk. Despite this, the economy is bustling, stifling regulations are being repealed, and our energy sector is being cut loose. This means prosperity ahead, but it will continue to be a dogfight to get things done, especially with victories being depicted as defeats

160118134132-donald-trump-nigel-parry-large-169COMMON SENSE: What is the #1 promise Donald Trump made to the American people? Wasn’t it to “Make America Great Again?” Of course it was.
 
All other promises subordinate themselves to this one, but to Make America Great Again, we must reassume our role as the leader of the Free World. This means the fecklessness and incompetence of the Obama White House has needed to be given a transformation and complete overhaul, which is exactly what President Trump has been doing in his first three months as President.
 
The mainstream media, who can never acknowledge anything positive about Trump, is saying that Trump is flip-flopping on his core promises, but nothing could be further from the truth. Because of Obama’s micro-management style and avoidance of global leadership, our enemies have been emboldened worldwide, requiring decisive action by our new President.
 
So far, Trump has received commitments from our NATO partners to pay their fair share of expenses for defense, which Obama could never do. The result is a solid check on Russian expansionism. Second, by sending cruse missiles into Syria, Trump has signaled to enemies and allies alike that the US retreat from the Middle East has ended. Third, by enhancing our trade relations with China, Trump has checked the belligerence of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, but more may need to be done. Fourth, by dropping the MOAB bomb on ISIS, Trump has signaled to Jihadists and everybody else in the world that America will once again take its rightful leadership role in fighting global terrorism.
 
Not bad for the first three months of Trump’s Presidency. Just because the Progressives in the mainstream media refuse to give Trump credit doesn’t mean a thing. The rest of the world—the non-Alinsky world—sees that America is back in the game, and they love us for it.
