My Latest Article - A Challenge to All Americans who still challenge The Presidency of Donald Trump, to set aside their preconceived ideas and prejudices! - Please Share. https://shar.es/1O48DL
I write to you at a time when we all should be celebrating and looking forward to better times. We have just inaugurated a brand new President, for four years, and even though some are unwilling or unable to accept it, the fact he is President remains unchanged.
The Presidential Race was hard and for most of us went on far too long. The Media decided to support Hillary Clinton, even to the extent of lying about Donald Trump. Accusation after accusation, without evidence or base. His every commentary twisted and taken out of context and whilst he was far from perfect, he did not deserve that level of response.
Whilst Hillary was off conspiring with George Soros and accepting donations from any who felt they could gain influence over and above that which she gave whilst in the State office, Mr Trump campaigned tirelessly. All of this was under the eyes of then President Barack Obama who failed to ensure the cleanliness of his staff, even to the point of allowing them to commit treasonous acts.
In the debates Hillary said that anyone unwilling to accept the outcome of the election was a threat to democracy, unless it was her of course. When it was revealed that Mr Trump had won, she beat her staffers & got drunk, again. Her whole strategy was that people wanted more of the same and it became her downfall. America didn't want a white Obama lady in a pantsuit, they wanted change.
After all was said and done Donald trump won the election and chaos for The democrats ensued. Every excuse for him winning was brought to table including the Russians, cheating, global warming, flexible rostering & witchcraft. Even though the Electoral College votes may have sealed the deal, it was an accepted part of the process, until it went badly for Hillary.
Even when Jill Stein from The Green Party raised funds for recounts and didn't spend all of the money on recounts it highlighted more votes for The Donald. It also highlighted more dishonesty from Hillary's team including voter fraud, double voting, dead people voting, illegals voting etc. Still the democrats were unwilling to accept the results.
Broadway then got in on the act (no pun intended) when the cast of Hamilton decided to give unsolicited statements from the stage to Mike Pence and his family when they attended the theater. I was left wondering when people paid to entertain us were given license to share their political theories when we had paid them to well... perform.
Hollywood then stepped in, as if they have some amazing power over us. Strikes were threatened, but were really empty in all honesty. None of the celebs who threatened to leave if Mr Trump won actually did, they just chose to whine about it, to the public's chagrin. Chelsea Handler who had threatened to move to Spain blamed The Kardashian Sister for Mr Trumps meteoric win as the USA was now a Reality Show.
Even Meryl Streep or Meryl Sheep as I call her now decided to use her acceptance speech to trash Mr Trump. Many switched off and whilst some applauded you could see a lot of the audience were uncomfortable. She took the opportunity to talk about Mr Trumps alleged attack on a disabled person, yet failed to mention the disabled person attacked by 5 black youths just days before. Streep throat indeed cough cough!
When President Obama was elected in 2008 I was still a Democrat. I remember the ideology of wanting The President to fail meant that you wanted the USA to fail. I am sitting here wondering what has changed? There was a lot of opposition to Barry & his Bodgers. The world was going to end, we would all be forced to become Muslims, and Republicans would be persecuted. None of it happened apart from the fact that Republicans were persecuted by his admin. Thank you IRS!
Obama in his last days freed drug dealers, thugs & trans traitors just for being trans. He ignored those with legitimate need for sentence commutation, like Kristian Saucier. Kris was jailed for a yr, lost his job, his pension and his family, a wife and a young child were left destitute. He took 6 selfies on a 40 yr old submarine and as Mr Trump said, anyone who wanted pics had them years ago.
Saucier's family lost their life savings paying for his defense in what was clearly a political imprisonment. Hillary walked free and ran for president for doing a thousand times more, but no, not even a pardon for this young man. While he rots in federal prison and his family suffer daily. If this is how we treat Patriots who serve our country I wonder why the hell they bother #FreeKrisSaucier.
I particularly enjoyed President Trumps speech especially the part were he reiterated that his administration was for the people, yet still some of the people object. At a time when America needs to come together united to begin afresh and correct the wrongs of the previous administration, the divide widens further.
My heart is sad that so many women marched against Mr Trump for comments he made in private 11 years ago. How about marching for the women in the Arab world who are stoned and have their clitoris removed or the gays who are thrown of roofs every day. These same people who commit such atrocities funded Hillary and you choose to march against Mr Trump? Wake the hell up America.
This talk of The Resistance movement is indeed futile and farcical. So what you marched, you protested, you tweeted your anger about the lack of free tampons and guess what? Donald Trump is still President and will be for the next four years and possibly eight.
Those who oppose Donald trump as far as I can see have two realistic choices. Suck it up and work together to make America great again and if you are still unhappy in four years, then vote someone else in. You may be very surprised in that president Trump might do such a good job you will want him for another four years.
Your other choice is to opine and complain for four years to anyone who will listen, but as I said this is futile. What change can you effect by working against the new President? He will still be the President after your march, tirade,complaint etc is over.
We need to come together and stop with the negativity as that will only benefit those who's m.o is to divide us further. We need to stop listening to the dishonest media who are paid to increase the divide and provide opinion rather than fact to sell their gutter rags. You are better than to be used as a tool of divide and allowing yourself to be brainwashed further is most concerning.
Whilst I am one of President Trumps fiercest champions I will also be one of his fiercest critics. He has set a challenge for himself and us to make America great again and I for one will be continuing to see he is charged with that task. As a commentator my job is to comment on all aspects of his Presidency, not just the good bits.
It is no secret that I did not like Mr Trump when he first ran for President. I based my perception on his TV persona which was nothing more that a character. Once he won the nomination to be the candidate I decided to put my preconceived ideas aside for the good of my country. I actually grew to like and respect this man once I separated him from his TV persona. I challenge you to do the same.
An open letter to Marina Sirtis & all celebrities, minor celebrities & has beens practicing to be a never was that are trash talking Trump! Dear Marina Sirtis Firstly, thanks so much for your appearance on Star Trek The Next Generation as Deanna Troi. Your performance was impeccable and the wardrobe department’s bold use of spandex was most definitely a genius step. I would like to add to your list of acting prowess but the only other thing I can think of is your appearance in Stargate SG1, The TV Series. Yes I did check IMDB but as we both know as actors, minor roles are just filler!
Whilst I was a fan and don’t want to be rude to you I am really disappointed at not only your foolishness as an actor, and your lack of Business Acumen, but your attempts to make me look unprofessional for merely disagreeing with you. May I remind you that it was your character that was empathic, not you and although you may think having one starring role qualifies you to be a Political Commentator, I am here to inform you that it doesn't!
Your Timeline on Twitter stinks of Liberal Logic and Anti Trump sentiment and you slanderous accusations would only be tolerated by those with no intellect. Calling Donald Trump a racist in order to further the political aspirations of Hillary Clinton or to boost your own flagging career is suicidal and your fan base dwindles daily.
This is before we even consider how many Casting Agents and TV Show Executives actually know and support Donald Trump and will be aware of your commentary. I for one am no longer a fan and will not support you anymore, but will observe your career suicide from afar. Even hard core fans will not tolerate your lies and misrepresentations of Mr Trump based upon the watered down perceptions you have gleaned from others.
When I called you out for an example regarding your assumptions that Donald Trump is racist, you cited commentary that had been generalised regarding his suggestion some Mexicans in The USA Illegally, had raped and murdered people. His reference was directly relating to those who had and was not a generalization about all Mexicans.
Your choice to misappropriate Mr Trump's commentary is directly and intentionally designed to draw focus from Mrs Clinton's own racism. Her best friend was head of The KKK. Robert Bird, The Grand Dragon of The KKK was the Clinton's best friend. Talk about hypocrisy!
You then had the audacity to criticize me by saying I didn't understand the concept of fact checking. Well my dear Marina, who hasn't had a major role since Star Trek, let me correct you for one moment. I have among other things been a fair and objective journalist for over 20 years. I have hosted, written and produced a Radio Show & a TV Show for four years and have checked my facts meticulously. What gives you the right to question my fact checking? Your guest appearance in Casualty maybe? It is one thing to disagree but to assert superiority based on the fact that you're a 61 year old British Actress who had one successful role that required cleavage and spandex is preposterous. I would even go so far as to say your knowledge of American Politics is minimal at best and clearly because you voted Labour and loved Tony Blair that makes you a Democrat. As for fact checking, I suggest you check out Hillary's racist commentary, maybe she still want's to refer to Black People as predatory and wants to bring them to heel.
Don't think for one minute that once the election is over fans will forget how you and others have behaved. You are slowly but surely isolating your fan base and encouraging those who could give you work not to do so. Let's face it Marina, your career has been far from successful since Star Trek, can you really afford to isolate fans and potential employers further with your level of dishonest commentary? I think not!
Sirtis is not the only celeb/minor celeb enticed by Clinton's brand of dishonesty, oh no sirree! Both Cher and Barbra Streisand have also been duped. At a recent fundraiser Streisand reworded "Send in the clowns" and was offensive about Trump. It is interesting how these people forget that probably half their fan base if not more could be supporting Trump. Even the gays have support for Trump and more than any other Republican Candidate in history, Donald supports the gays.
Think on celebs/minor celebs and wannabes. The fans you lose during this election cycle are not coming back and I am sure some of you really can't afford to hemorrhage more fans. What of my fan base you say? Well interestingly enough my fan base found me and support me because of my leanings. As a Talk Show Host, Writer & Political Commentator my followers are very specific, but I am wondering, can you say the same Marina, Cher, Babs and others? I think not!
