Why Americans hate the swamp

Today is an example of why Congress' approval rating is 20 percent.

It doesn't take a polling expert to tell you that a majority of Americans want Washington to work on solving problems that make their lives better, not on advancing their own Beltway careers through noisy, never-ending spectacles of partisan theater.

Americans know the drill by now: Careerist politicians yell. They hold hearings. They call on witnesses. They make themselves look busy. And then they do nothing of actual substance to help the very people who elected them in the first place.

No ordinary citizen thinks for a second that Congressional Democrats are making a principled stand for a Constitution they readily ignored through eight years of Obama Administration executive overreach. Voters see how the political establishment treats the Constitution as a tool of convenience—useful to praise at times, then easily ignored when it gets in the way. Everyone knows today’s performance is about one thing only: power.

Congressional Democrats don't even pretend to care about governing anymore. Not fixing our broken immigration system. Not rebuilding infrastructure. Not jobs. Not trade. Not manufacturing. Not anything the American people want and need Washington to help fix.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement today in response to House Democrats’ ongoing refusal to accept the conclusions of the Mueller Report—and, by extension, their refusal to accept the legitimacy of the 2016 election. It reads in part:

The American people see through Chairman Nadler’s desperate ploy to distract from the President’s historically successful agenda and our booming economy. Neither the White House nor Attorney General Barr will comply with Chairman Nadler’s unlawful and reckless demands . . . The American people deserve a Congress that is focused on solving real problems like the crisis at the border, high prescription drug prices, our country’s crumbling infrastructure, and so much more.

Donald J. Trump is President largely because Americans couldn’t stand another minute of Washington’s do-nothing, business-as-usual, insider political circus. Today, in the halls of the United States Congress, the swamp proved that it hasn’t listened to a single word of it.

See the Press Secretary’s full statement.
One year after leaving the disastrous Iran deal

One year ago, President Trump officially withdrew the United States from the fatally flawed, one-sided Iran nuclear deal—under which Iran was free to sponsor terrorist networks, develop its missile force, and brutalize its own people. Today, the President imposed tough new sanctions to further deprive Iran of funds for its campaign of violent terror.

“We are successfully imposing the most powerful maximum pressure campaign ever witnessed, which today’s action will further strengthen,” President Trump said in a statement. “Tehran can expect further actions unless it fundamentally alters its conduct.”

See President Trump’s official statement on Iran.

Get the facts: America is cutting off the Iranian regime’s cash flow
Video of the day: President Trump heads to Air Force base in Florida
This afternoon, President Trump took off for Panama City, Florida, to visit the Tyndall Air Force Base that was ravaged by Hurricane Michael last year. Despite the base seeing most of its structures damaged from the storm, the United States Air Force is determined to build Tyndall into the “base of the future.”

For National Hurricane Preparedness Week, President Trump is encouraging all Americans who reside in hurricane-prone areas to safeguard their families and homes.

“As a Nation, we are sadly too familiar with the destructive force of hurricanes,” the President said in his proclamation. “To help prevent and mitigate hurricane-related harm, it is critically important that we prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, which starts next month.”

One helpful tool the President called attention to this week is the Ready Campaign. Led by FEMA, the campaign is an online resource for all disaster planning needs.

It's a swamp because they don't work together nor do they trust each other. Too much bad blood in the election and the last two years. Both sides can not agree to anything I see this going on for quite some time. No business is getting done. Throwing stones at each other only in flames the non-workmanship this country needs resolved.

I've yet to hear anything positive other than the stock market is tanking and I feel a recession is the making. Tax's are still going up and each State is increasing property taxes for God only knows what.

If Washington doesn't clean up their act the States will suffer as will our relationship with the world.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
