Why Do We Eat Our Own?

“The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally – not a 20 percent traitor.”
Ronald Reagan

Trump Derangement Syndrome

The obsession to mock, slander, make fun of, and defame Trump at any moment possible. A result of the 2016 presidential election were Hillary lost spectacularly, the media is the biggest perpetrator, dashing 24/7 fake news about the U.S. president.

Michigan Citizens,

Eating our ownWhy do we eat our own?

Amid the organized insanity of the Left, several incidents happened that have cause some to start the sky is falling narrative, the “Trump Presidency is over.”
Specifically, Steve Bannon leaving the White House,and Bannon ally national security adviser Sebastian Gorka resigning.  Apparently both left chiefly over President Trump changing his mind about our Afganistan foreign policy and how to deal with North Korea. (I didn’t see the same reaction when Chief of Staff Reince left.) And the concern of a moderate Republican take over of the White House.

Both Bannon and Gorka have stated that they will be more effective unfettered from the restraints of an administration.

I agree

“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon told Bloomberg News Friday in his first public comments after his departure was announced.

Bannon returned to work as executive chairman at Breitbart News

Is Bannon and Gorka leaving cause for concern for the Trump administration?
Perhaps but does it mean the “Trump Presidency is over?”
(By the way why is the foreign policy called a “flip flop” but becoming pro-life is a change based on personal experience or facts?)



Has he changed his mind on appointing a Conservative judge(s) to the SCOTUS?
Has he changed his mind about being pro-life?
Has he changed his mind on our 2nd Amendment Rights?
Has he changed his mind on immigration?
Has he changed his mind on Planned Parenthood?
Has he changed his mind about reducing taxes?
Has he changed his mind of building the Wall?
Has he changed his mind on better treatment for our Veterans?
Has he changed his mind about transgendered in our military?
Has he changed his mind on rebuilding our aging Infrastructure?
Has he changed his mind on repealing Obama Care?
Has he changed his mind on reversing EPA policies that hinder the coal industry?
Has he changed his mind about supporting our police and military?
Has he changed his mind about Swamp Draining? etc.
If he changes his mind on many other campaign promises I could or would change mind.

And President Trump may be many things, depending on whom you ask but he isn’t a stupid man.
However, after mere months in office and the organized efforts of Liberal leaders and groups leading their crazed, violent Trump Derangement Syndrome minions to take him out, I am not throwing in the towel yet.
2018 is coming and there are opportunities to vote in the most Conservative candidates who will replace the political class cartel Liberals and RINOs with candidates who will move forward and not hinder MAGA policies.
So I also refuse to start the piling on of negative finger pointing narrative.

Does that mean you should be lock step, never disagree or point out key issues?
Of course not! But expressions of opinions CAN be done in a manner that disagrees with an issue instead of agreeing with the opposition.

Reagan on LiberalismAn 80%er (or more) Trump isn’t the enemy, Leftist’s policy pushers and their enablers are. And after eight years of Obama I am not yet willing to start to behave like the defeated. Isn’t that exactly what the political class cartel wants??

This isn’t about Trump it is about the chance to really move the ball forward in a way we have not been able to do in years.

Just to remind ourselves, this is a list of how President Trump is moving the ball forward
You may not agree with everything on this list but I bet as a Conservative you will agree with 80% or more.
