Commentary: Liberals going overboard in trashing Trump

Seems as if I’ve been a writer all my life. Most of it has been technical jargon from a military base and the other parts are on outdoor topics that I’ve a bit of experience in. In that time, I learned that the only way to produce a good science fiction offering was to preface it with historical and scientific facts.

Once that was done, then the subject matter was twisted to tell the tale you intended and to convince the reader that there was a significant chance the entire premise was plausible.

A recent letter by Mr. Jack Hoban (“Saddle up for the next election”) played that hand to the hilt. He spent half of his two-column tome squeezing in history and then managed to subvert it into a screed about our president.

As an old guy, I’ve lived through more presidents that most. I started with Truman to give you some idea, but in all that time, I have never seen the total lack of humanity being exhibited today by the rank and file Democrats. There is never anything positive said about the president and just as common is the use of innuendos and parroted phrases from the DNC. Forget getting proof of such statements.

As for his accomplishments, in the face of the most ridiculous claims that he inherited it, he’s actually made America great again, some pundit or politician is going to find disfavor.

First we hear that he was a warmonger and dealing with North Korea would get us into a nuclear conflagration. When that fell flat, they now accuse him of being milquetoast in responding to Iran’s shooting down an unmanned drone. Are Democrats incapable, unwilling, or just too ignorant to see the obvious hypocrisy?

Mr. Hoban’s talking points are simply silly at best. Perspective makes the world of difference. He did make one point that I must agree with. He chose President Eisenhower’s warning that if America failed it would come within.

Mr. Hoban carefully ignores that Eisenhower made these remarks in 1956 immediately after Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev remarked in the UN, “We will take America without firing a shot … we will bury you! We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism. We do not have to invade the United States; we will destroy you from within.”

Sadly, the advent of those remarks came to fruition when a child, raised by Communist grandparents and mentored by an avowed Communist anarchist became president in 2009. Surrounding himself with radical “progressives,” Barack Obama subverted our democratic republic with abandon and openly stated that he didn’t need Congress as he had a pen and a phone. He appointed “czars” over Cabinet positions to preclude congressional control and began to dismantle the mantra that America had spent over 230 years building.

He doubled the national debt of all other presidents combined and weaponized the major positions inside the sanctity of the White House. He nationalized major corporations with taxpayer money and created golden parachutes when they filed for bankruptcy. He spied on American citizens and even the media with impunity and he lied openly to an adoring media who had been integrated with communist ideals by the academia of this nation.

Yet through it all, conservatives held their tongues. They had faith in the system our Founding Fathers had designed and in 2016, got their retribution in spades. Sadly they also unleashed the mongrel who’d mauled our lifestyles for the past eight years.

At no time in my lifetime (and from history, I gather in no time since the republic was formed) has one duly elected p;resident been more vilified by the radical leftists in this country than Donald Trump has been. Nothing is sacred to these people and in pure communist fashion stolen from Joseph Goebbels learned that by telling lies often enough, gullible and uneducated people will soon believe it to be factual without questions.

Yet through it all, American conservatives kept the high moral ground and maintained a respect for the office even though the person serving it was an aberration to us.

I would like to provide a quote more relevant to Mr. Hoban. It was spoken by a Ronald Reagan, a president who liberals hated but respected. He said, “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

The United States is now under attack from the radical left and of the 20-plus candidates vying for the office of president, each and every one of them is promoting the Communist byline of open borders, increased taxes, reduced military and “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage ” (Herbert Hoover before leading America into the Great Depression).

Beware of the charlatans trying to convince you that our current president seeks to dictate how we live and look closely to see who’s actually campaigning to do just that.
