World Series Opening Pitch - 17 Years Ago

  • World Series Opening Pitch - 17 Years Ago

 By Capt Joseph R. John, December 27, 2018: Op Ed # 419

Seventeen years ago, America was a much different nation, it was united.  Please click on the below listed link to watch a video that will demonstrate that fact. 


When United, Americans can easily to prevail against all enemies “Foreign and Domestic.”  Unfortunately, the “vicious” attacks by the left of center liberal media establishment against the President of the United States, every day for the last two years without fail, continues unabated, and has been effective in dividing the nation. 


Much of the media reporting on President Trump has been inaccurate, while at the same time, the liberal media establishment has refused to report on any of the 289 accomplishments listed below, which President Trump was able to accomplish in the last 20 months despite unrelenting opposition, in some cases, on both sides of the aisle.

Despite that opposition, President has been demonstrating his “relentless” promise-keeping, that very few Americans have ever seen politicians keep in Washington.   


The vicious attacks against President Trump is not a demonstration of “Freedom Of The Press,” just as yelling “Fire” in a crowded theatre is not a demonstration of “Freedom Of Speech."  It is a demonstration of the desire to see the President of the United States fail.


The press has even attacked President Trump for visiting US Military personnel in a War Zone, the day after Christmas!


To cover up President Trump’s below listed accomplishments, is not in the best interest of the Republic.

Trump’s list: 289 accomplishments in just 20 months, ‘relentless’ promise-keeping

The Trump administration’s often overlooked list of achievements has surpassed those of former President Ronald Reagan at this time and more than doubled since the last tally of accomplishments after his first year in office, giving President Trump a solid platform to run for re-election on. 

As Trump nears the two-year mark of his historic election and conducts political rallies around the country, during which he talks up his wins in hopes it will energize Republican voters, the administration has counted up 289 accomplishments in 18 categories, capped by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. 

They include 173 major wins, such as adding more than 4 million jobs, and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsize importance, such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members. 

 “Trump’s successes in reducing the cost of taxes and regulations, rebuilding our military, avoiding wars of choice and changing the courts rival those of all previous Republican presidents,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. 

“Trump has an advantage over Ronald Reagan: He has a Reagan Republican House and Senate while Reagan had a [Democratic Speaker] Tip O’Neill House and a pre-Reagan Republican Senate. Reagan and [former GOP Speaker] Newt Gingrich were the ice breakers that allowed Trump’s victories to grow in number and significance,” he added. 

Unlike the Year One list which included many proposals and orders still to be acted on, the new collection includes dozens of actions already in place, signed legislation, and enforced executive orders. 

For example, while the Year One list bragged about the administration’s efforts to rewrite the much-maligned NAFTA trade deal with Canada and Mexico, the Year Two list said: “Negotiated an historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement to replace NAFTA.” 

In December, Secrets reported on the first list of White House accomplishments. 

And shockingly the NAFTA achievement is presented as a sidebar to the larger achievement that reads, “President Trump is negotiating and renegotiating better trade deals, achieving free, fair, and reciprocal trade for the United States.” Under that umbrella are eight trade deals cut with Japan, South Korea, Europe and China. 

“President Trump is a truly unique leader in American history. He’s a kid from Queens who became an international business leader and made billions by getting things when no one said he could,” said Trump’s 2016 campaign pollster John McLaughlin. 

“They told him he couldn’t be president and beat the establishment and he did. For two years the establishment is telling him he can’t do things in Washington and he’s succeeding in spite of them. He never retreats. He doesn’t back up. He’s relentless. He just wins,” he added. 

Comparing the two years shows that the latest has an expanded group of economic achievements while the pro-life category was folded into the health care section. 

Along the way, there have been some disappointments, such as failing to replace Obamacare, fund a big infrastructure plan, and build the border wall. 

But the White House believes that despite a lack of media coverage of his accomplishments, supporters know about them and will head to the voting polls to help the GOP maintain control of the House and keep the president on what CNN dubbed a “winning streak.” 

In the Washington Post Friday, former Bush speechwriter and columnist Marc Thiessen agreed and said that Trump has proven to be successful at keeping his campaign promises. He wrote, “The fact is, in his first two years, Trump has compiled a remarkable record of presidential promise-keeping.”
