Demonstrations by groups of protesters unhappy with election of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States has unleashed unprecedented volumes of violence and property damage across the nation. It is suggested the demonstrators be named “Whiner’s Resistance” as an example of treachery to the nation long exemplified by Benedict Arnold.
Activities are so numerous it is impossible to name all of them. We have Madonna at the January 21 Washington D. C. “Women’s March” in profanity-laced comments saying she dreamed of “blowing up the White House”. Even worse is a report from the Dallas Morning News, “A Dallas ISD teacher has been placed on administrative leave by the district for posting a video on social media that shows her shooting a water gun at an image of President Donald Trump and yelling “Die!” in a classroom.” The teacher is Payal Modi, an art teacher at W. H. Adamson High School.
A more bizarre story is a paid advertisement on Page A2 in the January 27 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “A message to black America from a concerned black American:”. The ad claims election of President Trump shows white Americans don’t care about black Americans and numerous signs to show this will appear in the next four years. Black Americans should vote to overturn the Trump Administration and “If all else fails, consider emigrating to another country.”
Whiner’s Resistance demonstrations across the country, and with unlimited plans for future demonstrations, have created violent confrontations, considerable property damage, and perhaps billions of dollars cost to tax payers. Vast law enforcement personnel are diverted to control these activities which provide opportunities for criminals to pursue their unlawful exploits.
This has to impact future recruitment of police officers who don’t want to confront Whiner’s Resistance mob rule. Greater pay is needed to keep present and future law enforcement personnel who spend numerous hours in these unpleasant activities.
Whiner’s Resistance members pay no attention to the activities of President Trump. As of this writing, he has completed exactly one week as President. This week is probably unprecedented in restoring economic health of the Nation. Ordering completion of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines contributes billions to the economy in new employment, lower fuel prices, and increased royalty and tax revenue. Freeing federal lands for logging, mining, and drilling accomplishes similar economic benefits. Reversing oppressive regulations from the Obama Administration leads to lower energy prices, smaller government, and more profitable businesses. Withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership enables negotiating more favorable trade agreements with countries involved. Ordering EPA and other agencies stop awarding new grants or contracts saves millions of dollars spent promoting the global warming scare.
President Trump is also providing service on a local level. On January 21-22, devastating tornadoes passed through several South-west Georgia counties causing great loss of life and damage. President Trump’s involvement is reported in the January 26 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution by the following:
President Donald Trump hasn’t been in office for a week, and he’s already talked twice to Gov. Nathan Deal about the deadly storms that struck south Georgia over the weekend. The governor said Wednesday he talked to Trump a second time as he was touring a trailer park in this Georgia town where seven people were killed, many side-by-side with loved ones.
It was a brief but cordial conversation with Trump, who informed him the Federal Emergency Management Agency had signed off on federal aid for an earlier round of tornadoes that struck Albany on Jan. 2. “My team tells me we’ve approved your recommendation in record time,” Deal said Trump told him. The governor then urged him to quickly approve a second disaster request for the violent storms that struck over the weekend, killing at least 15 in Georgia. “He was very upbeat, very concerned about the loss of life. He did not know how large the number was – he thought it was eight, and I told him it was larger than that,” said Deal. “He expressed his condolences to the people here in Georgia and I am just very thankful.
Speaking to reporters in Adel, Deal then drew a parallel with Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama. “This is the second phone call I’ve received from the president of the United States regarding these tornadoes,” said Deal. “I can tell you, this is my seventh year as governor of this state. And we’ve had other tragedies in the past. This is the first time I’ve spoken with the president about these types of circumstances. I’m very pleased with his attention to these challenges.”
President Trump had a very impressive first week in office. It would probably slow down activities of the Whiner’s Resistance if the mainstream media stopped showcasing their activities and gave President Trump his due credit.
