Big President Trump, Tiny Speaker Pelosi

Opinion

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Over the last few weeks the stature gap between President Donald Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi has grown dramatically.

While President Trump became the first foreign leader to meet with the new Emperor of Japan, Pelosi announced she would like to see Trump in jail.

President Trump then had a widely-watched dinner with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. The President seemed entirely at home as a world leader dining with the royals. The following day, the President had an interview with Piers Morgan, which was the most controlled and nuanced interview I have seen him give. He was truly presidential(except for his comments about gun silencers.)

The meetings with Prime Minister May and other government leaders also went well.

The anti-Trump crowds in London were tiny compared to the massive crowds that used to oppose Reagan (of course Putin is not spending the kind of money the Soviet Union used to spend on the so-called peace movement).

The President’s recitation at Portsmouth of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s prayer on D-Day June 6, 1944, was stunning and widely replayed in the news.

Then the President went to Normandy and gave one of the most powerful and moving speeches of his career. When even liberals and anti-Trumpers were comparing his speech to President Reagan’s historic 1984 oration, you know President Trump had achieved an extraordinary impact.

Shortly after the speech, the President met with French President Emmanuel Macron, who told the news media he and Trump were good friends.

A brief stop in Ireland to meet with the Irish Prime Minister (and play a little golf) wrapped up the most successful trip so far in the Trump presidency.

While the President was overseas, he was also orchestrating the first really tough negotiation with Mexico over immigration. Largely because the Congress has consistently failed to take control of the border and deal with illegal immigration, the President decided to focus on a strategy of getting Mexico to help control the illegal immigration that pours across its territory.

President Trump’s threat to impose harsh tariffs brought Mexico to make historic changes in its approach to controlling illegal immigration. Some 6,000 Mexican troops are being sent to their southern border in a first step toward getting control of illegal immigration.

While there was widespread criticism and opposition to Trump’s threats when he first announced them, within a few days they achieved more progress with Mexico than we had made in years.

While President Trump was proving he was a world leader in Japan, Britain, France, Ireland and Mexico, Speaker Pelosi’s House Democrats were ineffectually talking about subpoenas and investigations – and asserting that there is no border problem.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer: Speaker Pelosi’s shrinking stature is more than matched by the decay of the Democratic presidential field.

The stature gap just kept growing.

Speaker Pelosi’s shrinking stature is more than matched by the decay of the Democratic presidential field.

The only Democratic candidate with real national stature is Vice President Joe Biden. Biden’s 36 years in the Senate and eight years as vice president serving with President Barack Obama give him both name identity and acceptability. Unfortunately for Biden, three things are undermining his candidacy.

  • First, his own record since he entered the Senate in 1972 makes him vulnerable on issue after issue. From apologizing to Anita Hill to explaining votes and statements that offend modern radicals, Biden’s record has kept him on defense.
  • Second, the dynamic, militant elements of the Democratic Party are all on the Left. A recent uprising forced Biden to repudiate a lifetime commitment to support the 1976 Hyde Amendment – which prevents taxpayers’ money from paying for abortions. After a few days of pressure, Biden caved to the Left. A lifetime career of citing his Catholicism was washed away by the radical Left in less than a week.

On the environment and other issues, Biden is going to be driven to the Left. The heart of his candidacy — the stable, seasoned centrist — is being crushed by the energy and vitriol of the Left.

  • Third, Biden has always been a weak, self-destructive candidate and he is still a weak, self-destructive candidate. From defending the Chinese, to sniffing people’s hair, to plagiarizing others, there is a “Bidenness” that plagued his first two campaigns for president and will probably destroy this one.

If Biden does fade — and recent Iowa polls certainly make this possible — the Democrats will have no national candidate.

Bernie Sanders’ past as a pro-Soviet, pro-Castro, genuinely hard Left socialist is beginning to limit his appeal.

Behind Sanders is a wave of left-wing radicals who will be more alien to most Americans than Senator George McGovern was in 1972 (he only carried Massachusetts and the District of Columbia and lost to Nixon in the larges popular vote landslide in modern history (60.7% to 37.5%).

As President Trump grows in stature as a genuine world leader and the Democrats continue to shrink, the election of 2020 may be vastly different than the so-called experts currently think.

    When the Congress did not pass any restrictions on bump stocks, nor change the definition of “machine gun”, let us not forget who did. Let us not forget who reversed decades old “grandfathered law”, thus making a joke of the commerce clause – what is legal today can now be illegal decades later with criminal penalties attached. Let us not forget who said take guns first, due process second, supporting Red Flag Laws. Let us not forget who recently said they did not like suppressors, just before the Supremes refused to hear a case challenging NFA laws as unconstitutional. It… Read more »

    “Nancy Pelosi did you wonder away from the assisted living nursing home again? You know (or perhaps don’t!), that you are confused and lost and have dementia, please come back so that the nice nurse can give you your meds and put you to bed so you can take a nap, and when you wake up, the nice nurse will give you an enema and take you to the bathroom so you can make a poop!”

    FDR……..One of the biggest Traitors we’ve ever had. His kooky wife and all his Communist (Zionist) friends in his cabinet etc. Wouldn’t have had to have a ‘D Day’ if not for him and his buddy Churchill. (among others)

    The two biggest weasels would have to be Woodrow Wilson and followed up by FDR building on what Wilson achieved in the way of the destruction of the Republic ,since then every occupant of 1600 have nibbled away at it.

    Judicial supremacists portray the Constitution as a “living document.” What they envision is a constitution in perpetual evolution, where its words change by means of judicial precedent, or, “precedent upon precedent.” Such thinking can be traced to the time of Woodrow Wilson, who campaigned for president on the proposition that “constitutions must be Darwinian in structure and in practice.” Under this view, the Constitution would be fluid, not solid; elastic, not set; expansive, not limited – and the judiciary would be empowered to arbitrarily rewrite constitutional provisions. But none of that doctrine is found in Marbury. Rather, John Marshall stressed… Read more »

    Had there not been a D-Day, What about all the D-Days in the Pacific? do you think they would not have been necessary either? FDR was the cause of war on a global scale? If FDR had all those “Zionist” friends in his cabinet, why did the Holocaust happen? Why were Jews turned away from the US by the FDR government during the war if he had all those Zionists in his cabinet? FDR had socialist ideas but as with every other socialist ideas, none of them have ever produced anything as great or economically as powerful as the United… Read more »

    FDR did a lot of damage to the country that is only recently (last 20-30 years) coming to light. The Social Security time-bomb. The Great Depression lingering for a decade. The Yalta shortcomings. However, I do not believe he was a traitor. Nor that he knew about Pearl Harbor in advance. He wanted to go to war with Germany, not necessarily Japan. That said he was hardly the saint/savior that the liberal/progressives make him out to be.

    Vern, WW2 perhaps would not have happened. Not just D Day and the Pacific.
    Zionists in his cabinet etc………he had lots.The only “Holocaust” was WW2 itself.
    “If FDR was a traitor,this country would not be in existence today” is ludicrous to say the least.
    A bit more research on your part is needed.

    WWII would have happened with or without FDR, that is a fact. FDR was a sympathizer with socialism, as has the democratic party been since Wilson. The Jews do not rule this country, they have been instrumental in helping this country not only come into existence but also to stay into existence. Jews have backed the left heavily in the past but are now turning away as the Jew hatred of the left is becoming ever more prevalent. This country is in existence because of the promise in Genesis 12:3. The left wants to terminate this country but as the… Read more »

    Newt’s spin on these events are nice and maybe even true. What really worries me is that all of the low information voters believe all the crap that the media spews. Why are there no press conferences from the more conservative politicians? Why does no one stand up for ALL of our rights? Articles like this preach to the choir. We’re is the voice of We the People? I have known for some time that our rights are slowly being stripped from us and the worst part is that we have, and continue, to allow it to happen.

    Chuck & Nancy brought out 6 flags again for the pic. They sure like those 666’s.

    Hammond at GOA is far less impressed with Trump the gun grabber and offers far less Kool-Aid than tyrantland.

    All very true, but lets not forget the fiasco bump stock ban, and Trump bagging about how he didn’t fear the NRA ( basically gun owners ), what will he do during his second term when he no longer needs gun owners votes. His accomplishments are miles ahead of anybody who ran against him in 2016, be I keep thinking an assault weapons ban, federal red flag law, common sense gun safety is something he would be happy to support when its all about legacy.

    Sadly, I think you are exactly right. I believe we need a true 2A candidate with conservative values and I believe they could get elected if they didn’t get wrapped up in the race to the bottom. Unfortunately no one is stepping forward that would fit that description, the few Republicans that have flown test balloons are certainly not going to be of any help to us. I voted for Trump once as many of us did but I won’t again. His true colors have been shown and I think you said it perfectly when you said, “When he no… Read more »

    @AMIII, So we temporarily have some juice? Maybe we better use it while we can. Trump gets my “No Second Amendment. No second term!” message every day. Please see whitehouse.gov/contact.
    A post care company called Zazzle makes a “Politicians prefer unarmed peasants” post card for cheap; postage on a post card is cheap, too!
    Recently, I sent the Trumpet a “Sound suppressors are like mufflers on the car, and are good for the American manufacturing economy.” personal letter. Its funny annoying my employees in DC.

    @Austim Miller III If you are not going to vote for Trump who is left? all the democrats are vowing to take all the guns and I can assure you that the 8 years of Obumer was like a walk in the park if one of these clowns get elected. Your world and mine will be turned upside down and at the same time you will think you are living in Venezuela. Staying home is no option at all.
