Trump Has Made Progressives Reveal their True Agenda -- Open Borders, Amnesty, Mob Harassment
THE MIDTERMS ARE TAKING SHAPE. And the Democrats ought to be scared stiff. • • • BERNIE'S CANDIDATE TAKES ON ELITE DEMOCRAT CROWLEY AND WALLOPS HIM. TheHill reported it at 1 AM Tuesday night : "Veteran Rep. Joe Crowley’s (D-N.Y.) stunning defeat on Tuesday night rocked the political world, as Progressive candidates stormed to victory in primaries held across the country. Crowley, the chairman of the House Democratic caucus who was seen as a potential future speaker, lost in a massive upset to Progressive challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old organizer for Senator Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign." • Other Progressive candidates won primary challenges in top House and gubernatorial races -- from Sanders-endorsed former NAACP President Ben Jealous, who won the Democratic primary in Maryland’s governor race to activist Dana Balter, who won her House primary in upstate New York. Those victories deliver a huge message -- Democrat voters are ready to buck the political establishment and vote for Progressives who want to move the Democrat Party even farther to the left. • Clearly, the big news of Tuesday night was the victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. TheHill called it the Democrat "Cantor moment" : "Crowley’s loss is as stunning as then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R) primary defeat in 2014 -- maybe more so, because while Cantor spent his fateful primary hobnobbing in Washington, Crowley had taken his challenge more seriously, actively campaigning for his own seat in a borough where he still runs the Democratic machine. But the result was the same : A member of Congress once poised for the speakership is now out of a job." • The New York Democrat leadership's scheduling of primary elections for federal contests separately from those for statewide office was supposed to mean a low-turnout affair that party bosses could control. It turned into a perfect opportunity for Sanders backers to score their biggest goal of the year -- so far. As TheHill pointed out : "Crowley, 56, faced his first primary challenge in 14 years. He was seen as a potential successor to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. And he had longtime roots in his deep-blue New York City district that include parts of Queens and the Bronx. He’s also chairman of the Queens County Democratic Party. That didn't matter. Ocasio-Cortez beat Crowley 57.5% to 42.5%, in a victory showing that voters were ready for change in one of the most diverse districts in the country. Hispanics make up half of the 14th District’s population. Ocasio-Cortez ran on the need for new representation, criticizing Crowley for living outside the district and for taking corporate donations. The 28-year-old challenger gained some last-minute traction, especially after her viral campaign video where she said this race is about 'people versus money.' She garnered a number of Progressive endorsements from Our Revolution [a Progressive political action organization spun out of Senator Sanders's 2016 presidential campaign to continue its work], MoveOn.org [a George Soros organization] and Justice Democrats." • Crowley was an old-style machine boss, and like Nancy Pelosi, an insider’s insider. New York Daily News couldn't resist saying : "The King of Queens has been dethroned....as the head of the Queens County machine, he is essentially the definition of a candidate with all of the institutional support. He had raised $3.35 million in the race -- compared with just over $300,000 raised by Ocasio-Cortez." Among New Yorkers absorbing the shock on the morning after was Democrat incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo : "On hand at her victory party was Cynthia Nixon -- who is hoping to pull off a similar upset against Governor Cuomo in the Democrat gubernatorial primary in September. 'She ran an amazing campaign. She really spoke to her community,' Nixon said. 'If you give them the chance, they will embrace a female leader who really speaks to them. If you give them a chance, they will buck the status quo. They will elect a female leader who will really speak to them.' " The New York Post agreed on the magnitude of the shock : "Crowley’s defeat is a political earthquake in New York City politics where political machines dominate low-turnout elections and incumbents often go unchallenged....Ocasio-Cortez was endorsed by the New York City Democratic Socialists of America and recently told Vogue she was a member of the group because : 'When we talk about the word socialism, I think what it really means is just democratic participation in our economic dignity, and our economic, social, and racial dignity.' ” • Never mind that Ocasio-Cortez' campaign posters were in both English and Spanish and that she speaks Spanish -- she apparently doesn't have a clue about what socialism means in either language. Take Venezuela, for example, and its "socialist paradise" where people are starving and fleeing hundreds of miles through tropical forests on foot to escape. • • • PROGRESSIVE VICTORIES ELSEWHERE. Sanders didn't win only in New York. Progressives and Sanders allies were victorious in several other high-profile races in Tuesday’s multi-state primaries. • In Maryland’s Democratic primary for governor, Ben Jealous, a first-time candidate, defeated Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker for the right to take on Gov. Larry Hogan (R) in November. Jealous touted his endorsements from national figures in the Progressive movement like Sanders and Senator Kamala Harris. Baker's support came from local Democrat elite leaders like Senator Chris Van Hollen, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, and former Governor Martin O'Malley. Jealous backs many of Sanders’s core issues including “Medicare for All” legislation, free college, and a $15 minimum wage. But, Jealous will face a tough general election race against the very popular Hogan, who has strong job approval ratings. • In New York’s 24th District, Dana Balter cruised to victory in a race where local and national Democrats clashed over their preferred candidates to take on GOP Representative John Katko in a top swing seat. Balter, a professor at Syracuse University and progressive activist, consoldiated support from four local Democratic county committees. Balter was also backed by Our Revolution. But, just weeks from the filing deadline, national Democrats made a last-minute recruitment that angered local activists. They encouraged former US Navy Officer and prosecutor Juanita Perez Williams to jump into the race. National Democrats have waded in a number of high-profile primaries where they worked to get a candidate through that they believe would be a stronger general election candidate. So, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) added Perez Williams to its candidate program where those on the list benefit from financial and organizational support. While Balter and Perez Williams didn’t differ on many issues, local Democratic leaders accused the DCCC of meddling in its primary. It showed on election day -- Balter beat Juanita Perez Williams 62% to 38%. • LGBT candidates have made enormous strides. On Tuesday, Rep. Jared Polis (D) won the Democratic nomination for governor of Colorado, becoming the third member of the LGBT community to win a gubernatorial nomination so far this year. In a state like Colorado where Progressive Democrats compete with libertarian-minded Republicans, being gay is not a deal-breaker for voters. Polis's biggest hurdle in November won't be that he's gay -- it will be convincing voters to back his strongly Progressive agenda -- "Medicare for All," universal pre-K, and slowly transitioning Colorado, a state with plenty of oil and gas business, to all-renewable energy. But Polis has the money to make his case. He built a fortune by running several internet startups and has already spent $10 million of that fortune on his race for governor. Polis will face Walker Stapleton, the two-term state treasurer and Bush family relative, who is ttying to become only the second Republican elected Colorado governor in 44 years. • • • TRUMP HAS CLOUT. Trump flexed his presidential MAGA muscle and solidified his political clout in primaries on Tuesday, helping to shepherd two incumbents lawmakers he backed -- Representative Dan Donovan of New York and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster -- through their respective primaries. • In one of the most bitter primary battles of the cycle, Donovan trounced former GOP Representative Michael Grimm in the Staten Island primary. Grimm was looking to make a political comeback after serving an eight-month prison sentence for tax fraud. Trump took center stage in New York’s 11th District primary, where the two Republicans battled over their loyalty to the president. Grimm sought to fashion himself as a fierce ally of the president, arguing that Donovan doesn’t support Trump since he voted against the GOP’s tax overhaul. But Donovan earned a critical endorsement from Trump, who warned that backing Grimm could lead to another Alabama, where Republicans last year ceded a winnable race to Democrats. And in the final days of the race, Donovan got reinforcements from the White House, including Donald Trump Jr. and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who’s now Trump’s personal lawyer. • In South Carolina, McMaster also won his GOP primary runoff against businessman John Warren. McMaster faced three well-funded challengers in a primary earlier this month, but failed to avert a runoff, which triggered Tuesday’s race. Trump made a last-minute swing through South Carolina on the eve of Tuesday’s primary on behalf of McMaster, who was the first statewide official to back Trump in the 2016 GOP presidential primary. McMaster spent the primary campaign telling voters South Carolina was in good shape, and that he is the experienced candidate to keep the winning streak going. The governor, the lieutenant governor who took over when governor Nikki Haley wentto the UN as ambassador, beat the charge that he is not conservative enough to win the SC governor's race. McMaster won the Republican governor runoff Tuesday against political newcomer John Warren, a Greenville business owner and Marine veteran who self-financed his campaign while billing himself as a political outsider. • And, we now have Mitt Romney back. Trump endorsed him, but I still feel very negative about this #NeverTrumper getting into the Senate. Yet, Romney took the Republican nomination in Utah’s US Senate runoff race with 73% of the vote. His opponent, state Representative Mike Kennedy, got about 25%. In his laidback style, Romney said at 8:24 PM on Tuesday : "Well, it looks like our team won the primary." He and his wife, Ann, delivered brief remarks at 8:40 PM.” That was it. • • • WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? American Thinker's Thomas Lifson talked about the Crowley defeat : "The architecture of the 20th century Democratic Party is slowly dissolving before our eyes, as identity politics and socialism replace the old center-left coalition. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28 year-old Bernie Sanders organizer and endorsee of the Democratic Socialists of America, resoundingly defeated Rep. Joe Crowley, a ten-term incumbent who hadn’t faced a primary opponent in 14 years, and who spent at least ten times as much money in the race. Ocasio-Cortez’s face at her campaign party when she realized she had won reveals the extent of the shock." • Ocasio-Coirtez' primary victory means that she will almost certainly win election to the House in November. Her district that gave 78% of its vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016, and is 49.8% Hispanic and about 20% white. She will replace Minnesota’s Keith Ellison as the radical socialist/identity politics standard-bearer in Congress. Lifson said : "A comparison of Crowley’s defeat to that of Eric Cantor, also a member of his party’s congressional leadership, is reasonable. Both incumbents grew out of touch with their constituents and focused on internal party politics and maneuvering. CNN quoted Ocasio-Cortez harping on one theme similar to that used by Rep. Dave Bratt to defeat Cantor : 'This is not an end, this is the beginning. This is the beginning because the message that we sent the world tonight is that it's not OK to put donors before your community,'....The New York Times published a scathing editorial criticizing him [Crowley] for skipping a debate with his opponent. The pair had debated days before, and met again for a debate shortly after the editorial published....she focused on grass roots organizing and was not taken seriously by the party establishment....She said she also benefited from supporters across the country phone-banking and writing postcards to voters in the district. Ocasio-Cortez said her campaign had five core staffers and a couple of hundred volunteers....Ocasio-Cortez, like President Trump, did not spend money on the old guard political consultants, and had a lean campaign. She also has a good visual sense, as her campaign graphics were striking, and appealed to non-English speakers. As a visually striking, young embodiment of the New Democratic Party of minorities seeking socialism while denying the reality of its practice, Ocasio-Cortez will attract national attention in the campaign and when she is seated in Congress. In the immediate prospect, she may help the GOP. But if her version of the Democratic Party ever holds power, God save the United States." • American Thinker's Patricia McCarthy wrote on Tuesday before the primary results were in, but her focus was right, noting "the face of the Democratic Party...that lovely duo, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi....So deluded as to why Trump won, they seem to think their particular brand of madness that includes the public shaming of anyone and everyone in the Trump administration is going to win back the House and Senate for their party." McCarthy is right about the state of the Democrat Party : "It is by now undeniable that the hate-Trump left has gone stark- raving mad. Its members have lost all semblance of sanity, decorum, and class. With Mad Maxine Waters leading the way, they are encouraging public interference and assaults in the form of hastily assembled mobs to shame anyone connected to the Trump administration who has the temerity to venture out in public....They think the American people are so stupid, so thoroughly uninformed, that they will fall for the lie that what Trump is doing at the border is unlawful and cruel. In fact, the practice of separating migrant children from the lawbreakers who show up at the border with children in tow is of long standing throughout the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. The conditions in which the Obama administration kept unaccompanied children was far worse than how they are being cared for now. Obama's policy was to simply turn them over to so-called care facilities, many of which were fronts for child sex-trafficking. Obama lost track of thousands of young children he encouraged to come to the southern border, who then simply disappeared into the interior of the country. To where and to whom, no one knows. Many of them are sent as potential mules for the drug cartels, others to be trafficked by the enormous network of pedophiles on which AG Sessions has been cracking down hard....The senseless murders of innocents like Kate Steinle mean nothing to Nancy Pelosi, and that murder happened on her watch, in her district. Her city has been ravaged by her ruinous progressive policies. Like Los Angeles, it is overrun with homeless people, drug addicts who urinate, defecate, and cast off their dirty needles anywhere they please, all over the city. No one goes to San Francisco as a tourist anymore. It's blighted and dangerous. This is what the policies of our left hath wrought." • • • MAD MAXINE WATERS. The Democrat Party's troubles in Tuesday's primaries was driven home in the outrageous calls for mob action by Maxine Waters, who has become the face of the radical Progressive left side of the Democrat Party. Waters is 80 years old and ought to know better than to incite violence. Her Los Angeles 43rd District, which includes Watts, must remember the Watts riots of 1965 and 1992. But, Waters lives and votes in what the LA Times calls a $4.5 million mansion in Vermont Knolls, just outside California's 43rd District. The house was located in the 43rd District when she purchased it in 2004, but redistricting that followed placed Waters’ home a few blocks outside her home district. Some real estate estimates disagree with the LA Times, placing a value of $2.8 million on the house -- still not bad -- and not really indicative of the already high and escalating real estate valuations in LA since Waters bought the properrty in 2004. Mad Maxine also reportedly owns another property worth up to $1.1 million and a time-share property in Palm Springs. Maxine’s husband, Sidney Waters, is a former NFL football player, Mercedes dealer and minority business dealer who has partnered with former teammate and NFL great Jim Brown. Sidney also receives pensions from the NFL and Mercedes-Benz, in addition to a few other sources of income, according to the couple’s financial disclosures. Hre 2018 net worth is estiamted at $5 million. • MSNBC and CNN defend Maxine, of course, apparently finding her calls for mob harassment of public officials with undertones of violence okay -- while most Americans are horrified by her calls. But, there she is -- alongside Nancy Pelosi -- the face of the Democrat Party. And, even Nancy Pelosi has enough brains to realize that openly advocating mob action against high-level federal officers and ICE agents might not play well back home. On Monday, Pelosi and others tried to walk back Maxine Waters's odious calls for such acts. • GOP Representative Andy Biggs wasn't satisfied with Pelosi's slap on the wrist -- or Speaker Paul Ryan's either. Biggs has introduced a measure that would censure Representative Waters over her speech to constituents that urged supporters to confront and harass Trump administration officials. In her speech, Mad Maxine shouted at ther supporters : "And so, let's stay the course. Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere....Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!" Biggs believes that Waters should not only apologize for the remarks, but resign her seat in Congress as well. Biggs told TheHill that Waters' comments do "not become somebody who's in Congress" and warrant disciplinary action : "So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the President's cabinet....And also spread that out to more people. Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did." But, the Biggs censure resolution won't get much traction. Repulbicans are afraid of criticizing the senior Black House member and taking the catcalls of 'racist' and 'bigot' that would follow. So, no matter how crazy or unbalanced Waters and other black Democratic congressmen are, the potential backlash against Republicans has them lying low. That is too bad, because forcing Democrats to vote to condemn violence or support Waters would present them with the choice of being representatives of all of America of supporting identity group politics as usual. • Former Bush administration Ari Fleischer also called for Congress to censure Waters : "There's enough in this society, you don't engage in those types of practices. And, Maxine basically denied that she called on people to harass others. No peace, no rest. So she is still sticking by what she has done. The press needs to have a feeding frenzy among the left as they always do on the right. It's her turn now. Frankly I'm at the point where, if she continues to double down the House ought to take up a motion to censure her. Because this does lead to violence." • • • THE DEMOCRAT MIDTERM PLATFORM. What we saw on Tuesday was a fleshing out of the Democrat platform for November. It is being written by the radical Progressive wing of the Party and it is a far cry from the center-left Democrat platforms of the Kennedy-Clinton eras. It calls for OPEN BORDERS with no right of defense for America as potentially hundreds of thousands of migrants with no asylum justification storm into the US -- think Europe today. It calls for public MOB HARASSMENT of Republicans, conservatives, and everyone now working in the Trump administration, including all ICE employees, hounding them out of restaurants, theaters, and hotels, and threatening their families and children -- think extreme socialism like that in Venezuela or Cuba today. • American Thinker labels the Democrat platform clearly : "When a major figure in the Democratic Party issues a call to hound, threaten, and harass federal officials and law enforcement personnel, it is the duty of every Republican campaign official and candidate to set that call with a branding iron into the forehead of the Democratic Party and all its candidates. The Democratic Party and its irresponsible fellow travelers and propagandists in the corporate media have created the climate of hate for this president that, predictably and inevitably, produced a call for action approaching violence. That call is unprecedented in American history and deeply ominous for the near-term future of the Republic. The Democratic Party should be made to pay a heavy electoral price for Maxine Waters's call to harassment, intimidation, and the illegal obstruction of immigration law enforcement. By defining itself as the party of open borders and endless illegal immigration, and by calling for un-American mass intimidation of federal officials and obstruction of immigration law enforcement, the Democratic Party has handed the president, the Republican Party, and every embattled Republican congressional candidate two huge electoral issues. We already know that the President is a fighter. He proves that again and again simply by going to the office every day in this unprecedented atmosphere of hatred and media propaganda masquerading as 'news.' He has earned, many times over, the intense admiration, gratitude, and devotion of the overwhelming majority of those who voted for him. As a fighter, the President no doubt knows how to use the two powerful electoral issues he has been handed over the last couple weeks by the unhinged new Democratic Party. Can the same be said for those running the national Republican congressional and senatorial campaigns?" • • • TRUMP WILL FIGHT, BUT WILL THE GOP ELITES? That is the real issue. Can we depend on the traditional Republican Party elites to stand up for America and stand beside President Trump. Will the GOP elites, for example, follow William Sullivan's advice about amnesty? Sullivan wrote in American Thinker on Tuesday : "Amnesty for illegal aliens has never been a winning issue for Democrats. Barack Obama seemed to operate with this knowledge. But his successors obviously don't share his political cunning....Deportations had to happen by law, he asserted. But beneath the table, he was undermining the laws of the people as only the shiftiest despot might. Take what's commonly become known as his 'catch and release' policy, more formally known as his administration's 'prosecutorial discretion' guidelines. Under these guidelines, ICE data from 2013 reveal, 'hundreds of thousands [of illegal aliens] who were identified in the interior of the country were released instead of removed.' In that year, only 25% of criminal trespassers in America were charged with their crime. To make matters worse, a large number of those released were criminals, even beyond their having committed the crime of entering this country illegally. In fact, 68,000 (or 35% of the illegal aliens encountered by officers) had 'criminal convictions,' and they were released into the population 'without formal notice to law enforcement agencies and victims.' For the record, more than 80% of Americans disagree with this 'catch and release' policy to this day." Sullivan points out that : "Three quarters of illegal trespassers not being charged with a crime and being released into the 'shadows' is not something easily missed by those desiring to break the law, you see. The summer of 2014 saw illegal aliens, and peculiarly massive numbers of unattended children, surge across the border by the tens of thousands. The American people witnessed this spectacle and became angry at the policies of the administration that led to it....In mid-June of 2014, he told the Mexican government, then facilitating much of the flow-through of migrants from Central America, that immigrants crossing illegally 'won't qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children.' This was damage control in anticipation of the coming election, and in response to his dismal approval polling (which, by the way, was significantly lower in June 2014 than Trump's current approval rating)....In 2013 alone, the administration's Health and Human Services Department had 'as many as 25,000 unaccompanied children in its care across 80 shelters.' That is, these were the same shelters being hyperbolically likened to Auschwitz by some sympathetic observers now that Donald Trump is the President but that went curiously undiscussed in previous years. November of 2014 was the most immediate reckoning for all of Obama's shenanigans around illegal immigration. Republicans showed up in huge numbers to vote Democrats out in November of 2014, and few honest observers would say that the election was not predicated upon the central issues of Obamacare and illegal immigration policy." • Fast forward to 2016. Donald Trump drove home the illegal immigration and 'catch and release' poliices of Obama and created a politicla force around that building of a wall and secure America's borders by applying US immigration laws strictly until they could be revised by Congress. And, in 2018, when Democrats argue that 800,000 DREAMers should be made legal citizens, President Trump upped the ante by offering that 1,800,000 of them be made legal citizens -- BUT only in exchange for stronger border control measures and a wall to curb illegal immigration. Democrat leaders were defiantly opposed to Trump's deal. Instead, ProgDems jumped on the "zero-tolerance" policy as it applies to separating children from their parents who've been incarcerated for having broken our immigration laws. Trump again called their bluff, ordering federal border enforcement to hold children and the parents in incarceration together. Within four hours of her demand, Democrat leaders said that solution "will not fix the problem." • Of course it won't. Trump knows that. But, what he had done was to tell Democrats -- you can have families together, but only in incarcetaion circumstances. What the ProgDems wanted was a return to Obama's "catch and release" policies. • Sullivan says the real problem for Democrats is "no longer that they're being 'ripped' or 'torn' from their parents, but that the children get to stay with their parents in incarceration for having broken our laws. What ProgDems are demanding from President trump is "the absolute decriminalization of illegal entry into this country." Hoxever, says Sullivan : "Absolute amnesty is still not a winning position with the American people. Democrats would do far better by going back to the drawing board to drum up new outrage about climate change or doubling down on transgender rights as their flagship issue, something like that. Trump has forced Democrats to show their hand on illegal immigration, and in so doing, he may have ensured that the 'blue wave' Democrats were once optimistic would sweep America this November will become little more than a fanciful myth some media outlets and college professors told to hopeful leftist dupes in early 2018." • • • THERE IS PLENTY TO FIGHT ABOUT. Peter Fonda callaing for pedophiles to rape Barron. Kathy Griffin symbolically beheading Trump. Soros's Black Lives Matter calling for the killing of police and whites. Mad Maxine Waters saying God supports her call for mob harassment of Trump cabinet members and the President himself. Snoop Dog portrayed shooting President Trump in the head. with its agenda. Democrat Laurence Key vowing to kill Republican Brian Mast's kids over our immigration policy. Schumer refusing any negotiation on immigration reform or DREAMER solution becasue he does not xant to close the border wiht a wall. • WHY? Because all ProgDems really care about is flooding our country with unskilled illegals who will be dependent on government and vote for Democrats whether as citizens or as ringers. • • • DEAR READERS, where is the Democrat or mainstream media approval for Trump having reduced Black or Hispanic unemployemt to their lowest recorded levels? Where is their rejoicing over Trump's 3.8% unemployment rate that now means there are more jobs than people to fill them? Where is their satisfaction over the fact that Trump has increased petroleum production so much that the US now has enough for domestic uses and exports 3 million barrels a day, instead of importing the bulk of its own needs? Where is the ProgDem relief that ISIS is shattered? Where is their pleasure in seeing Trump actually reach out to dangerous nuclear nations like North Korea, while taking measures to force Iran out of the nuclear business? Where is the salute for Trump's ability to get NATO funded more equitably and to call out the UN when it abuses Israel? Where is the Democrat voice that speaks up positively for reduced taxes and regulation that benefit Americans and small businesses and set big business booming in the US? • Every Trump victory for America only leads to more vicious and greater noise from the radical left Progressive Democrat Party -- more insanity, more outrage, and more dangerous efforts to destroy the America that Donald Trump has gotten off its knees and into its rightful place as world leader on every issue. • These achievements are why it is critical that we make sure the GOP maintains a majority in the House and Senate in November. And, not just a majority but an increased majority with new members whose conservative MAGA-Trump-supporting credentials are upfront. • And, this should be our message to Mitt Romney and every other Republican elected in November -- if you come to Washington as a Swamp Creature ready to join the #NeverTrump losers, we will sideline you as we have done to others who see government as a playpen for elites. • President Donald Trump spoke to young people in Washington on Wednesday, urging them forward in their lives and careers. The President had a stirring message for them : "There’s never been a better time to be young and American. We’re citizens of the freest strongest and greatest nation on earth. Greatest nation ever to exist, and we’re getting stronger every day....You bring fresh eyes to old problems because as young people you’re not burdened about the failed thinking of the past....“You got to love what you’re doing and if you don’t, then just do something else....Never, ever quit. I see people quitting. And if they had just hung on a little longer, they would've won." • President Trump has lifted the Grand Old Party far above the losing ways of 2008 and 2012. He is lifting America to its shining hill. Now is the time to hold our position and add more Americans who support our winning agenda. Making America Great Again is everybody's job.
