Greetings fellow American Patriot Trumpublicans, and welcome to the Charlottesville riot, Tear down our history, North Korea blinks, and Iran Nuclear deal breaker episode of Trump Talk Live, the home of fearless Truth-telling about President Donald Trump, whether the fake news media approves or not.
There was a time when the words of a President would bind a nation together. That time has passed, and contrary to all the wailing, whining and weeping of the lunatic left, President Donald Trump is not the sole reason for our division.

Amidst the scolding and the scorn of the pampered and sheltered commentariat and compliant political opportunists, Donald Trump speaks the common sense language of an America we once shared with pride. (CONSTITUTION IMAGE)
That nation, albeit imperfect, was always capable of becoming a “more perfect union” because of the brilliant governing mechanisms crafted by founding fathers endowed by their Creator with the wisdom of the ages. (WE THE PEOPLE)
They knew that human nature in its abounding imperfection, would require checks and balances to prevent the menacing mob or the tyranny of a select few from infringing on our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Our founders were brilliant men who lived in a time flawed by glaring hypocrisy. Yet they created a framework of government capable of fixing the worst of those flaws over time.
(AMERICAN PEOPLE IMAGE)
This nation has incurred a deep moral debt to native Americans who lost their lands, their lives and tradition to American settlers, to generations of Africans imported here and bound into slavery, to women who were denied full participation in decisions that affected their lives. (CONSTITUTION IMAGE)
Over time, the Constitution authored by Madison and other founders discovered ways to right many of the wrongs, and to create a “more perfect union.” Yet it’s not perfect today, nor will it ever achieve perfection as long as human flaws hold sway.
(AMERICAN PEOPLE IMAGE)
We cannot change mistakes of the past. We are free to build a better America informed by our understanding of those mistakes. That’s all the more reason why we should not seek to erase the historical record that stands to illuminate current and future generations to a more noble path. (VIC WEBCAM 1)
But alas, instead of a nation of pioneers, innovators, and leaders, we are becoming a land of victims, grievance-holders and finger-pointers.
President Donald Trump said these words on August 12th, the day of the Charlottesville riot:
(TRUMP AUGUST 12 IMAGE)(VIRGINIA RIOT AUDIO CLIP CUT 1)
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.
It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives.
(VIRGINIA RIOT AUDIO CLIP 2)
I just got off the phone with the Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and we agreed that the hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection -- really -- and I say this so strongly -- true affection for each other.”
(VIC WEBCAM 1)
Those words were appropriate. But because they came from President Trump, the statement was found wanting by his harshest critics and their willing accomplices. They cried, ‘where was the specific condemnation of extreme-right, neo-Nazis or KKK members involved in the riot? How DARE he draw a “moral equivalency with the violence committed by the hard left?’
After a weekend of caterwauling, President Trump issued another statement on Monday, August 14th, this time specifically calling out those responsible for the violence, including the KKK and Neo-Nazis:
(TRUMP AUGUST 14 IMAGE) (CONDEMNATION AUDIO CUT 1 1:40)
“I just met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation into the deadly car attack that killed one innocent Ameri- can and wounded 20 others. To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered.
As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America.
And as I have said many times before: No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.
Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.
(AMERICAN PEOPLE IMAGE) (CONDEMNATION CUT 2 :23)
We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.
(VIC WEBCAM 1)
This was not going to satisfy President Trump’s hard-left critics who expressed shock and outrage once again. That’s because the President said violence was perpetrated by both sides in this tragic episode, which resulted in the deaths of an innocent woman hit by a killer’s car and two law enforcers lost in a chopper crash.
(KKK, ANTIFA, BLACK LIVES MATTER IMAGES)
The media arbiters of public morality seem to conveniently forget that the Ku Klux Klan was a creation of Democrats, that the Antifa and Black Lives Matter movements are funded and organized by hard-left individuals and groups and they are known for violence.
(13TH AMENDMENT IMAGE
Historically, the Democrat Party opposed amendments that granted full emancipation, citizenship and the vote to former slaves after the Civil War. Those amendments were ratified by Republicans without Democrat votes. (JIM CROW IMAGE)
Democrats imposed Jim Crow laws and opposed desegregation.
Even though Democrat President Lyndon Johnson pushed for Civil Rights and Voting Rights Bills, that legislation was opposed by Southern Democrats and could not have passed without Republican support. Behind the scenes, Johnson was commonly known for racist remarks that have been documented by his biographer.
The Democrat Party has taken the black electorate for granted over many generations, buying support through welfare, public housing, and affirmative action. The so called War on Poverty has failed. As President Trump has pointed out, many African Americans are still mired in poverty living in decaying cities ruled by Democrats even today. He asked them: “What the hell do you have to lose by voting for me instead?”
The President tried to hold a Trump Tower News Conference Tuesday August 15th to discuss his plan to expedite the rebuilding of America by cutting red tape. That infrastructure plan includes a heavy focus on rebuilding the infrastructure in America’s dying inner cities.
Instead, he was confronted with red-faced rage from a media mob intent on devouring him in a feeding frenzy of moral indignation.
(GEORGE WASHINGTON IMAGE
The President presented them with the absurdity of their holdings. Which statue goes next? He asked. “What about George Washington? He was a slave owner. How about
Thomas Jefferson?” The President was prophetic. A day later a Chicago Pastor petitioned Mayor Rahm Emanuel to remove a statue of
George Washington from public view. What’s next on the hit list?

Mount Rushmore? The Taliban and ISIS would be proud of our new Orwellian American urge to purge.
(VIC WEBCAM 1)
The Loony Lefty Media are devoted to the utter destruction of our 45th President. Their relentless daily inventions of Russian collusion delusions, North Korea war mongering, race baiting historical revision, and identity politics have prevented the true story of the Trump Presidency from emerging.
Weak-kneed Republicans like Mitt Romney, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and the never Trumpers are quick to pile on, sensing they would be trampled by the rabid PC herd unless they join the stampede.
What they’re not telling you is that Donald Trump’s Presidency is succeeding in spite of all these rampaging media narratives:
Our laws are being enforced.
Our border is more secure.
Bullies like North Korea are backing down.
ISIS is in retreat.
NATO nations are starting to pay their fair share for the common defense.
The stock market is at record highs.
Consumer confidence, business growth, jobs, and economic optimism are
on the rise.
Worker participation is at record levels.
Food stamp use is down
The choke-hold of government regulation is easing,
America is becoming energy independent.
You won’t hear much of this from the so-called main-stream media. CBS devoted its ENTIRE Tuesday Evening News to the Trump news conference smackdown with reporters. Nothing about infrastructure, tax reform, a million new jobs since January, or the fact that Donald Trump is the first President in modern times to make North Korea back away from the brink.
(FIRE AND FURY IMAGE)
When he warned Kim Jong Un of “Fire & Fury”, the critics called him a war monger maniac. Yet Kim backed down.
(VIC WEBCAM 1)
When he used his Constitutional authority to limit immigration, they called him a racist, yet our nation is more secure.
When he called on the Muslim world to lower the boom on terrorists, they scoffed. Yet Muslim nations are embracing his call to “drive them out.”
When he stood tall in Warsaw and called on nations to stand for Western Civilization against Radical Islamic Terrorists, skeptics scoffed, yet his words echoed those of Ronald Reagan in Berlin when he called on Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.”
When he withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord, they called him reckless and predicted global doom. But he spoke a truth that others would not dare. The accord a global scam intended to rob the United States of its prosperity and sovereignty.
Donald Trump is a leader who speaks plain and obvious common sense truth to those who’ve been indoctrinated to believe a Marxist, leftist extremist narrative that seeks to erase all of our founding anchors, values and cherished American traditions.
Donald Trump is not a racist. But he is also not willing to fall prey to a politically “correct” narrative that seeks to outlaw free speech unless it's sanctioned by the left and its media propagandists.
Alveda King, niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King has credibility to speak to the issue. She came to the President’s defense:
(ALVEDA KING IMAGE) (ALVEDA CUT 1 &2)
“Here in the 21st Century, President Trump is following something that I learned in the King Family legacy during the 20th Century, in the 1960’s:
Get your facts, educate your public, examine your own heart, negotiate peacefully, protest to get to non-violent peaceful reconciliation.”
“He was right when he made his first remarks. He said, cease fire. Stop all the violence. Just stop it. Then he examined all the facts and began to point out where the evil is seeded in violence.”
“So he was very correct with that. He often says, ‘no matter what color our skin is, our blood is red. Learn to love & respect each other.’” (VIC WEBCAM 1)
America, GET A GRIP!
You are losing sight of what really matters: Individual freedom, respect for free speech, tolerance for differing viewpoints, and a commitment to achieve a UNITED STATES OF AMERICA as that shining city on a hill, a beacon of hope for those who seek liberty and the right to PURSUE happiness in the land of the free and home of the brave.
