Trump Praises Robert E. Lee As a ‘Great General’ He Mentions Abe Lincoln And The Crowd Went Wild

Published

on

While the left is hyperventilating over ‘mobs’ and trying to silence conservatives, President Trump is rallying the faithful in ever larger crowds. In Lebanon, Ohio, Friday night, he packed out the house and was received as though he was a rock star.

According to Breitbart, “Trump, who has been on a campaign and media blitz, will travel to Kentucky on Saturday evening for another rally as he barnstorms across the country to boost Republican candidates in key congressional races.”

The left, however, lasered in on one statement by President Trump so they could throw the ‘racist’ card at him again. Trump praised Confederate General Robert E. Lee as “a great general.” That’s because historically… he was. I can hear the gasps out there already over that statement. And no, I’m about as far from being a racist as you can get. As a matter of fact, so is President Trump. Read actual history and learn from it.

“So Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee,” Trump said before launching into a monologue about Lee, Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. That is an established fact of history. It really doesn’t matter if the left likes it or not.

“He was going crazy. I don’t know if you know this story. But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle. And Abraham Lincoln came home, he said, ‘I can’t beat Robert E. Lee,'” Trump stated.

“And he had all of his generals, they looked great, they were the top of their class at West Point. They were the greatest people. There’s only one problem — they didn’t know how the hell to win. They didn’t know how to fight. They didn’t know how,” Trump went on.

Trump also pointed out several times that Grant had a drinking problem. Then he said that the former president “knocked the hell out of everyone” as a Union general. “Man was he a good general. And he’s finally being recognized as a great general,” Trump added.

Because of political correctness out there, Trump has drawn criticism for his defense of Confederate statues, including those of Robert E. Lee. But I agree with the president here… it is history. You can’t just pretend none of this ever happened, you have to learn from it. And there was good and bad on both sides, not just one in my opinion.

What I love about Trump is that he’s fearless. He doesn’t cave to the left and whimper in retreat. He says what he believes for better or worse.

From The Hill:

“He drew widespread condemnation last year following a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Va., saying that white nationalist protesters were there to oppose the removal of a “very, very important” statue.

“They were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee,” Trump said at the time. “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”

“Trump, speaking at another rally in Ohio last year, said that he can be one of the “most presidential” presidents to hold office. “…With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office,” he said to a crowd in Youngstown.”

And when Trump mentioned Lincoln, the crowd went wild.

One of those that Trump mentioned during the rally was Kanye West. And Trump is convinced that we are winning over black voters. But he also had a number of other topics including immigration that he covered – all of them are priceless.

From Fox News:

“The president addressed a number of topics during the rally, calling it “horrible” how newly installed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated “unfairly” during the confirmation process. He repeatedly referred to the increasingly aggressive liberal protests as a “mob.” And he repeatedly implored attendees to get out the vote for Republicans in next month’s elections.

“He also took aim again at Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, joking that Democrats have “have become radicalized” to the point that she now seems “mainstream,” Warren says she is considering a run for president against Trump in 2020.

“I mean Pocahontas – Elizabeth Warren – she’s becoming mainstream, you believe that one?” Trump said.”

If this rally is an indicator of the midterms and beyond, the Democrats are in deep doo-doo. It’s standing room only at his events and Trump is just getting more and more popular out there despite what the left does or throws at him. Trump is taking the fight to them and Americans are lining up behind him.

Meghan McCain Cold-Cocks Trump While Explaining Her Break From ‘The View’

Published

* By

Perhaps Meghan McCain moving to The View from Fox was a better fit than anyone knew at the time. She’s carrying forward her late father’s criticism of President Trump. This time she’s slapping at Trump for not going after Russia and Putin harder.

McCain took advantage of the fact that she is traveling to Britain to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of her father. Her charges against President Trump are unfounded. He has aggressively fought against both Russia and China while in office. The Daily Caller has more on McCain’s bitter vitriol:

Meghan McCain criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for failing to “fight against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime.”

“I will be gone from @TheView tomorrow and Friday. I am going to London to speak @HouseofCommons and then to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of my father and all who continue the fight against Putin’s tyrannous KGB dictatorship,” the co-host of the ABC talk show tweeted ahead of accepting the award for the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.

“While the Trump’s and their administration continue to be too ignorant or too unscrupulous to fight against Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime -I promise on behalf of my father to spend the rest of my life doing all that I can to help fight and speak out against it,” she added.

McCain’s father passed away in August following a year-long battle with brain cancer. During her father’s eulogy, she appeared to use the opportunity to call out Trump over his “Make America Great” slogan.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” McCain shared. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”

Daniel Vajdich, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, and others have shared their beliefs that Trump’s been tougher on Russia than his predecessors.

“When you actually look at the substance of what this administration has done, not the rhetoric but the substance, this administration has been much tougher on Russia than any in the post-Cold War era,” Vajdich explained.

Under Trump’s administration, “some of the toughest sanctions in years” have been brought against Russia’s elite, according to a CNBC report. The president also approved the sale of weapons to Ukraine, something former President Barack Obama declined to do. He has also openly targeted Russia’s allies and strategic operations by ordering missiles to be fired at Syrian military sites.

The London event titled, “The McCain Legacy and the Magnitsky Act” will involve discussions about McCain’s role in passing the 2012 human rights act named after Sergei Magnitsky, who exposed money laundering and corruption in Putin’s regime, according to Newsweek.

The legislation promises to impose sanctions against countries found to have committed human rights abuses.

GOP Announced That They’re Confirming Trump’s Picks – Dems About To UNLOAD

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Washington Times:

Republican senators will work through New Year’s Eve to confirm all of President Trump’s pending judicial nominees before the end of the year if Democrats try to obstruct the confirmation votes, Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, has made remaking the federal bench with a conservative bent a priority, and has more than 40 judicial nominees awaiting floor votes.

Before leaving Capitol Hill prior to the midterms, Republicans vowed to get them all confirmed during the lame-duck session before the incoming Congress begins in January.

“I know that Sen. McConnell has made a commitment that we’re not going to leave any judges behind over these next two months,” the Arkansas Republican told conservative host Hugh Hewitt.

He said Democrats have shown unprecedented obstruction, demanding the maximum amount of floor time to debate the president’s judicial picks.

“So it’s really up to them whether they want to confirm those on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve, or whether they want to confirm them earlier in December by yielding back the time,” Mr. Cotton said.

It’s not clear how much is possible.

Republicans and Democrats have been striking deals this year to go on vacation but before leaving confirming as many nominees as would have been approved had the Senate remained in session.

For example, before leaving Washington a month ago before the midterm elections, GOP leaders struck a deal with Democrats to confirm 15 judicial nominees.

While the Senate was away, the Judiciary Committee held confirmation hearings for 10 more judicial nominees over objections from Democrats.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, Tuesday demanding a second hearing for them.

No Democrats and fewer than three GOP members of the committee appeared at the hearings where three circuit court picks were considered.

“Every other Senate committee that had previously scheduled hearings when the Senate went into recess postponed their hearings. And, as you know, holding nominations hearings during a recess had never been done before in this committee without the consent of the minority,” Ms. Feinstein said in her letter.
