He’s right on the money.

President Trump recently sat down for an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson in Japan, where he took an opportunity to shred Democrats for their awful policies that have destroyed so many of America’s major cities causing soaring homelessness and filth to run rampant on the streets.

He pointed to these as examples of what he is personally up against in the fight to help America regain prosperity in the aftermath of eight years of Barack Obama and radical left-wing policies, claiming the left is destroying an entire way of life.

Trending: Bill Barr Goes On Record, Says Dems ‘Engaged In A War’ to Systemically Sabotage Trump Admin

“They’re run by very liberal people and the states are run by very liberal people … Do they really think this is okay? Because it’s not. It’s destroying their city and it’s destroying a whole way of life.” Trump said bluntly, “We may intercede.”

The exchange began with Carlson noting, “You come to where we are now, Osaka, or Tokyo, and the cities are clean; there’s no graffiti; there’s no one going to the bathroom on the street; you don’t see junkies … ”

Trump replied, “It’s very nice, isn’t it.”

Carlson pointed out, “It’s very different from our cities.”

Trump agreed, “Yup. Some of our cities.”

Carlson repeated, “Some of our cities. But New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles; they’ve got a major problem with filth.”

Trump said, “It’s very sad. It’s very sad.”

Carlson then prompted Trump, asking, “Why is that?”

Trump answered:

It’s a phenomenon that started two years ago; it’s disgraceful; I’m gonna maybe — and I’m looking at it very seriously— we’re doing some other things, as you probably notice, like some of the very important things we’re doing now; where but we’re looking at it very seriously because you can’t do that. You can’t have what’s happening, where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat, I mean. They’re getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick; people living there are living in hell, too, although some of them have mental problems where they don’t even know they’re living that way, in fact, perhaps they like living that way. They can’ do that. They cannot ruin our cities.

And you have people who work in those cities; they work in office buildings and to get into the building they have to walk though a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago. This is the liberal establishment; this is what I’m fighting. I don’t know if they’re afraid of votes; I don’t know if they really believe that this should be taking place, but it’s a terrible thing that’s taking place and we may be — you know, I had a situation when I first became president, we had certain areas in Washington, D.C. where that was starting to happen. And I ended it very quickly. I said, “You can’t do that. When we have leaders of the world coming in to see the president of the United States and they’re riding down a highway, they can’t be looking at that.”

I really believe that it hurts our country. They can’t be looking at scenes like you see in Los Angeles and San Francisco. San Francisco, I own property in San Francisco so I don’t care except it was so beautiful. And now areas that you used to think as being, really something very special, you take a look at what’s going on with San Francisco and it’s terrible. So we’re looking at it very seriously. We may intercede. We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up. It’s inappropriate. Now, we have to take the people and do something; we have to do something. And, you know, we’re really not very equipped as a government to be doing that kind of work; that’s not really the kind of work that the government probably should be doing — we’ve never had this in our lives before in our country, and it’s not only those few cities; it’s a couple of other cities

Trump concluded by stating, “At the same time, most of our cities are doing great; but if you look at some of these; they’re usually sanctuary cities; they’re run by very liberal people and the states are run by very liberal people. But the thing that nobody can figure out is, are these governors or mayors, do they really think this is a positive? Do they really think this is okay? Because it’s not. It’s destroying their city and it’s destroying a whole way of life. And it’s not our country; it’s not what our country’s all about.”

The main reason liberal policies leave such a wide path of destruction and devastation whereever they are put into practice is because they violate the invisible hand of the free market, the universal principles recognized and discussed by Adam Smith in his book “The Wealth of Nations.”

God, the Creator of the universe, made all things ruled and governed by certain principles that simply cannot be violated. When people try to violate those principles of reality, bad things happen. Like the decay happening in major cities run by progressives for decades.

Only when policies that line up with these principles are put in place do things begin to improve and function more appropriately. No system is perfect, because systems are implemented by people and we’re all imperfect beings.

However, liberal policies are a disaster, and thus if we want to see cities return to success, we must stop trying the same failed left-wing strategies and actually get back to the free market system.

Meghan McCain Says Trump Admin Using West As ‘Slush Fund’ For Putin

Published

on

Meghan McCain, co-host of “The View,” is making some rather strange allegations against the Trump administration, claiming that she believes they are using their positions to create a “slush fund” for Russia and its president Vladimir Putin. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: McCain, 35, made the comment during a brief moment on Monday’s show in which she addressed her presentation of the Magnitsky Award to Oleg Sentsov, who was imprisoned in Russia for coming out against Russia’s annexation of Crimea, last week. “I was at the Magnitsky Human Rights Awards in London, and Sergei Magnitsky was someone who found corruption in Russia, was subsequently tortured and killed because of it, and there is now an act that is in the United States, and we’re trying to make it expand globally where basically Russia can’t use the West and democracy for their dirty money, that they can’t launder it in countries that love and utilize democracy and freedom every single day,” she said. Before the show went to a commercial break, she added, “I believe there are people in the Trump administration that are trying to use the West as a slush fund for Vladimir Putin and Russia, and we cannot let it happen.” https://youtu.be/yCYam09arxU Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya stated previously she discussed the reexamination of the Magnitsky law with President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., here referenced by McCain, during a meeting that took place back at Trump Tower back in 2016 before Trump won the election.

Navy SEAL From Bin Laden Raid Calls Out Biden For Saying Trump ‘Not Fit To Command’ Troops, Says ‘How Dare You’

Published

on

Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, the man who claims to have killed radical Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden, let it be known in no uncertain terms that he was not happy with a recent statement made by former Vice President Joe Biden stating President Trump is not fit to command U.S. troops. Biden posted up a tweet on Sunday about Trump’s decision to pardon three military members who had been accused or convicted of war crimes. The president cleared Army Special Forces Maj. Mathew Golsteyn and Army Lt. Clint Lorance and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. The list of crimes they had been charged with included killing a suspected Taliban bomb maker, taking photographs of an Islamic State fighter’s dead body, and killing two civilians. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump claimed he intervened because he wants Americans fighting overseas to have the “confidence to fight.” Biden claimed Trump’s decision “betrayed the rule of law” and those who fight honorably. O’Neill, who claims he was the SEAL responsible for killing Osama bin Laden, shot down the 2020 Democrat’s tweet by highlighting his own foreign policy flaws. He noted that Biden reportedly opposed the 2011 raid to kill bin Laden and that he announced SEAL Team 6 was responsible for the operation. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1196093459486191616 Many individuals think that Biden’s admission of SEAL Team 6’s involvement in the death of bin Laden put the team’s members in danger, including an attack on one of the team’s helicopters which resulted in the death of several individuals who participated in the raid. https://twitter.com/mchooyah/status/1196291215844495360 Lest anyone think O’Neill is a die-hard Trump supporter, it’s important to note he’s been critical of the commander-in-chief on many occasions, including the president’s call for a military parade, which he called “third world bulls***.”
