With Trump, Libs Are Against It Even If They Are For It


Famous comedian Groucho Marx once sang, “Whatever it is I’m against it.” The same could be said for today’s liberals when it comes to Trump. They’re against it Even if it’s something they support.

With Judge Kavanaugh, it’s not so much him they are against, but the constitution. Liberals like to change things by the bench and need liberal judges to do that who will waver. Judge Kavanaugh is an originalist which means he goes strictly by the constitution and said that’s how he would judge things. The Supreme Court is not supposed to make new laws or get rid of old ones, but just adjudicate on certain cases and render an opinion for others to decide.

As Rush Limbaugh recently stated on his show “The thing you need to understand about that, among all other things, the left is not opposed to Justice Kavanaugh. They are opposed to the Constitution. It’s the Constitution that scares them. It is the Constitution that threatens them. That’s the nature of their opposition.

Before Judge Kavanaugh was even nominated the Women’s March group had posters printed up slamming whoever Trump nominated with fill in the blank spots to insert a name. No matter who he nominated they were against it.

Now, the left is also scared to death of next potential nomination. They’re scared to death of the future of Ruth “Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg has been in poor health and over 80. If Obama and Hillary had known what they were doing, they would have cajoled Ruth Ginsburg into retiring while Obama was president so that he could name her appointment and have that seat guaranteed for the Democrats for the next 40 years, but they calculated there was no way Hillary could lose.

It didn’t even occur to them that Donald Trump would win. It never occurred to them that a Republican might have a chance to appoint the next couple of justices, or three. They assumed that would be their exclusive right. And so they didn’t make any suggestion to Ruth Ginsburg that she retire. Now they are freaking out that Trump can name two more judges.

For decades now ever since the cold war, libs have been demanding that we pull out militarily from European nations saying they should build up their own defenses instead of us funding them.  Now Trump is over there saying just that. Actually, he was saying that long before he even became a candidate.

President Trump on Wednesday demanded that NATO allies increase defense spending immediately and double their current goal for burden-sharing in the defense alliance.  Trump stood up to our allies in Europe and told them the U.S. will no longer be Europe’s ATM machine.  As of now, we pay 70% of NATO’s budget, that’s 70 cents for every dollar NATO spends and Trump told them this will end. As Trump gathered with leaders of NATO countries for a summit in Brussels, he also repeatedly said Germany’s energy dependence on Russia undermines its independence.

He blasted the German government for not spending more on defense and suggested that a 3-year-old energy supply agreement has left Germany “captive” to Russia. Trump urged Merkel to buy natural gas from the U.S. Hours later, though, Trump took a softer line during a face-to-face photo op with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“What good is NATO if Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars for gas and energy? Why are there only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment?” The president tweeted. “The U.S. is paying for Europe’s protection, then loses billions on Trade.   Europe Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025.”

Liberals who once accused Trump of being Putin’s puppet now accused him of being too harsh on Putin. They can’t have it both ways. Dems have nothing to offer so all they do is complain and attack.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that he agrees with President Trump on spending issues and thinks Trump’s leadership was responsible for making other NATO countries pay more.

Trump took to opportunity to blast the media for not reporting it.

During a joint appearance, Stoltenberg said, “First of all, it’s great to see you again, Mr. President.  And good to have you here for a summit. And we are going to discuss many important issues at the summit. Among them is defense spending. And we all agree that we have to do more. I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. The good news is that allies have started to invest more in defense.”


He continued, “After years of cutting defense budgets, they have started to add billions to their defense budgets. And last year was the biggest increase in defense spending across Europe and Canada in that generation.”

Trump then asked why the spending increase happened last year.

“Why was that last year?” Trump asked.

“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message…” Stoltenberg responded.

Trump then pointed to the press and poked at the media for not reporting on his successes.

“They won’t write that, but that’s okay,” Trump said.

“No, I have said it before, but the thing is that it really has,” Stoltenberg said. “And your message is having an impact, and we are going to build on that to make sure that we have further increases.”

Now libs in the media are blasting him for wanting to pull out of NATO even though they were all for it for decades now.

On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh explained the deal between Putin and Merkel with Germany receiving cheap gas from Russia:

The Nord Stream pipeline, the special pipeline direct to Germany from Russia, a deal made between Putin and Angela Merkel which  Trump called them out on it today. This pipeline strikes at the heart of NATO unity. This is Angela Merkel sabotaging other NATO nations by making a straight deal with Putin while every other pipeline goes through all the other European nations. This pipeline gets… For now, ’cause Putin controls the price, it gets cheap Russian gas to Germany and bypasses all of the smaller eastern European nations, and this gives Russia incredible leverage over Merkel! It allows Russia to pressure them while Germany is held harmless. It’s bad policy for NATO countries, and Trump has the guts to call ’em out on this!

President Trump’s fiery salvo at German President Angela Merkel in today’s NATO summit is spot on, according to the Daily Mail:

Donald Trump’s claim that Germany imports 70 percent of its gas from Russia at a fiery Nato summit today is correct – and the country will soon receive even more.

The EU’s statistics agency, Eurostat, says that Russia is responsible for up to 75% of Germany’s total gas imports.

And experts say that figure could dramatically increase after a new pipeline between Russia and Germany opens in two years time.

Germany already imports 55 billion cubic meters of gas from Russia via the Nord Stream pipeline and will pump another 55 billion cubic meters through the new Nord Stream 2 network.

Trump also stated that Germany spends billions annually relying on Russian gas. Again, he’s correct.

Germany’s gas bill from the Russian Federation’s state-run company Gazprom last year amounted to a staggering 17 billion euros ($21 billion).

Suddenly liberals are OK with the use of pipelines that endanger the environment to transport fossil fuels that are causing global warming that will exterminate life on Earth.

Meanwhile back home here over 200,000 jobs were added in June as the number of employed Americans set its 10th record since Trump took office. Additionally, Trump sums up America’s economic policy as “jobs, jobs, jobs.” Also, just in time for the midterms, the Democrat party issued a statement calling Trump’s jobs agenda “reckless.” Isn’t that what Joe Biden always campaigned on when he said “Jobs, jobs, jobs?”

So whatever Trump is for liberals are against it even if they support it.

  1. Difference of opinions if just fine and melding of them often brings great results….BUT only if they are ‘actual’ opinions. The noise we hear as objection and protest are a jungle full of parrots eating free crackers! They live in fear that the freebie train will derail if they ‘think’ for themselves.

    What we ‘think’ is what we know’….If allowing others to think for you, then you know nothing. The media is so involved in trying to out headline the others they don’t let anything get in their way…not even truth. I’d bet that most in Congress relies on this same media as their main source of information. Just to darn much trouble to check things out for themselves.

    Guess I’ll put the soapbox up before I’m echoing other ‘real’ Americans.

    Jim, do you still have my email? Yours was lost when computer crashed, send it ok?
