“If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean”

Black Entertainment Television founder and longtime Democrat Robert Johnson said in an interview that aired Tuesday that the Democratic Party has become too liberal to defeat President Trump in 2020, unless major changes are made. “The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left."

“I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that,” Johnson said. “The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people.”

The BET founder, who supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, even praised some of Trump’s recent accomplishments.

 “I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,” Johnson said. “African-American unemployment is at its lowest level…  I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans.”

Johnson also told CNBC that he thinks tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy, whereas partisan politics have gone too far.

“I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going,” Johnson said. “If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the clear, clear partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean.” Johnson said he gives Trump an “A+” for the economy but added that divisive politics are “not helping America as a global nation.”

The 73-year-old entrepreneur founded BET in 1980 with a $150,000 loan and sold it for $3 billion in 2001, according toForbes.

VP Michael Pence: “It's true — our alliance with Israel has never been stronger"

"We must never allow the memory of those lost in the Holocaust to be cheapened as a cliché to advance some left-wing political narrative. Last month, a leading Democrat in Congress actually compared our U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facilities to concentration camps. Her allies in Congress, the Left, and in the media shamefully came to her defense."


He was talking about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democrat who accused the Trump administration of establishing "concentration camp systems" on the southern border.

“To compare the humane work of the dedicated men and women of Customs and Border Protection with the horrors of the Holocaust is an outrage,” Pence said. "And make no mistake about it: This slander of law enforcement was an insult to the six million killed in the Holocaust. And it should be condemned by every American of every political party everywhere."

Pence also highlighted recent disputes over the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement, which has been endorsed by another first-term House Democrat, Minnesota's Ilhan Omar.

The campaign, an effort to target Israel with the kind of economic and diplomatic pressure that brought down the apartheid South African government at the end of the Cold War, prompted Republicans to draft legislation that would allow states to blacklist from contracts companies that cooperate with the BDS movement.

"Remarkably, today, all but one Democrat running for president voted against the Combating BDS Act in the United States Senate," he said. 

“Anyone who aspires to the highest office in the land should not be afraid to stand with Israel.”

Ayatollahs in check as sanctions bring Iran's economy down

UPDATE: 

Iran Warns - Will turn Persian Gulf into 'sea of blood'...

 

Iranian oil tanker impounded by UK Marines on its way to Syria. Troops of the Royal Marines boarded and impounded the vessel in keeping with European Union sanctions in force against Syria since 2011.

President Trump has shown insight and deliberation on Iran as he attempts to renegotiate what was a horribly bad deal brought forward by the Obama team and his Secretary of State, Kerry in particular. It was a sellout. That deal did not achieve what it sought, failed on many areas and sent money to a terrorist state without getting sufficient benefits. It was in other words, what Trump has termed, “a very bad deal.”

What Trump is doing on Iran is trying to fix decades of bad policy and deflect their atrocious behavior in the region and as the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism. The pressure Trump has applied and the persistence to stay the course is increasingly likely to achieve another outcome. It is something Trump would applaud, and his advisors would all support, namely: regime collapse.

That is not military based regime change. Here is what it means: the Iranian economy suffers and suffers and then suffers some more. Inflation is out of control; the currency falls precipitously; goods are hard to find and dearly expensive; oil revenues plummet; and GNP continues to decline. All of this, in time could cause implosion—or regime collapse.

“A Republic ... If You Can Keep It”

"We will always be the people who defeated a tyrant, crossed a continent, harnessed science, took to the skies, and soared into the heavens. Because we will never forget that we are Americans and the future belongs to us. The future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud and the free.

We are one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny. We all share the same heroes, the same home, the same heart, and we are all made by the same almighty God. From the banks of the Chesapeake to the cliffs of California, from the humming shores of the Great Lakes to the sand dunes of the Carolinas, from the fields of the heartland to the Everglades of Florida, the spirit of American independence will never fade, never fail, but will reign for ever and ever and ever."

President gives Salute to America speech at the Lincoln Memorial

Click on link

President Trump’s role as Commander in Chief of the American military is more important now than ever, with the neoconservative wing agitating for a costly war with Iran and with left-wing radicals staging violence in the streets that many fear could threaten the stability of the American homeland.

America’s borders are under siege as migrants from Central America, Mexico and the Ebola-ridden Congo breach the border and gain entry into our country.

Control of the military will be a paramount issue in the 2020 election. Can Americans trust any Democrat at this point to properly preside over the most powerful military in the world? Americans must understand the dire situation we would be in if that scenario becomes a horrifying reality.

Maryann Pistilli - RE-ELECT THE PRESIDENT

 

Regional Field Director at Republican Party of Florida

Volusia County

In the last weeks of the 2016 campaign, Maryann was appointed RPOF Field Director after the promotion and transfer of her predecessor. And we all know how important Volusia County was on that amazing November 8th night. Trump won Volusia by 33,970 votes. That was nearly a 13-percentage-point difference in a county that eight years earlier had backed Barack Obama by nearly 14,000 votes.

Maryann Pistilli, from New Smyrna Beach, led a core group of women in Southeast Volusia who knocked on thousands of doors, encouraging the unregistered to register, Democrats to switch to Republican, and – most of all – to vote for Trump.

When those people answered the door and talked with her, the same subjects tended to arise. “Jobs. Jobs. Jobs,” Pistilli said. “National security. ... People know they’ve been lied to every day when they turn on the media.”

And in Trump, they trusted. “Being from New Jersey, and having been in real estate, I’ve known about Donald Trump for years,” she said. “He’s a huge job maker.”

TRUMP RELENTLESS - TRUMP ASTOUNDING

Click on UPDATE:

Watch: President Trump meets Chairman Kim at the DMZ

With President Donald Trump making massive strides toward peace and stability surrounding North Korea, the media cannot accept -nor allow- the common sense solutions to succeed.  President Trump is clearly perceived as a risk because his success highlights just how useless and manipulative a professional political class of consultants, advisors and DC think-tanks really are.

The U.S. media are desperate to find something to criticize and openly cheering for failure, so long as it provides fuel for their anti-Trump narrative.  It is stunning to watch against the backdrop of President Trump cutting the Gordian knot known as North Korea.

It all began on August 15, 1945 with the creation of the 38th Parallel.

Click on Image 

 38th Parallel Created, Korea is divided - August 15, 1945

From 1910 to 1945, Korea was ruled by Japan, but when Japan surrendered at the end of World War II, the United States, the USSR, and Great Britain agreed at the Yalta Conference to divide Korea into two parts along the 38th parallel, with the Soviet Union controlling the northern part and the United States controlling the southern part. In 1948, the People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea was established.

  North Korea invades South Korea - June 25, 1950

5 years after Korea was separated, the leader of North Korea, Kim II Sung, decided to launch an invasion on June 25, 1950, to try to reunify Korea. American officials were surprised by this attack and suspected that the Soviet Union was behind this. They feared that this would result in communists taking over the world. For this reason, the United States decided to provide military force to South Korea to stop North Korea’s invasion.

 North Korea and South Korea agree to a truce - July 27, 1953. 

After two years of peace talks, in which the two sides continued to fight in the brutal war, North Korea and South Korea finally agreed to a truce. The truce marked the end of the Korean War on July 27, 1953. The negotiations had been extremely difficult.

 Talks at Geneva fail to unite Korea - April 1954

When peace talks resulted in a truce, they still left the two halves of Korea divided. The Geneva conference aimed to unite them into a country. However,  the diplomats from the United States, China, Soviet Union, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, and the Republic of Korea couldn't agree on favorable terms for their respective countries. Thus, the country remained divided.

Then at the DMZ, an incredible moment

Click to Watch

President Trump and Chairman Kim leaders shook hands over the concrete slab that forms the military demarcation line between South and North Korea. “Good to see you again”, said Kim in English, adding that he would have “never expected” to see President Trump “at this place”.

At 3:46pm, President Trump crossed the demarcation line, becoming the first sitting US president to ever step into North Korea. President Trump then walked a few meters into the North together with Kim. “Good progress, good progress”, he said as the two leaders crossed back to the South.

Asked to recount the moment and first words with Kim when they approached the North-South line of demarcation, President Trump later said he asked Kim: “would you like me to come across. Kim said he would be honored. It was my honor to do it,” said Pres Trump.

Then Chariman Kim crossed into South Korea and the two leaders met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The North Korea problem goes back to 1950 and Harry Truman. For 69 years and after 11 presidents, No one had been able to get a grip on what to do about NK -- until now. Our POTUS will earn the Nobel Peace Prize .. and this time it won't be a joke.
