Britain: Back on Track?
A hearty thumbs up from those of us at WaddyIsRight (so mainly me) to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who, by his prorogation of Parliament, is throwing down the gauntlet to Brexit saboteurs: they must now either throw him out of office, pass a law preventing Brexit on October 31st, or get used to the fact that the will of the British people will FINALLY be done, despite their bellyaching. Well done, Boris! Make those Europhiles sweat! Even the New York Times seems to be swooning over you, just a bit:
Another big thumbs up to President Trump who, despite the unpatriotic whining of the mainstream media, is sticking to his guns in our trade war with China. Why the Chinese have been so obstinate I still can't fathom, but we certainly can't afford to buckle under. Does the current round of tariffs weigh on the economy and American consumers? You bet. But it's a means to an end, and the end we seek is trade fairness and a more balanced trading relationship with China, which will ultimately be in everyone's interests. All Americans ought to be lending their support to the only U.S. President bold and public-spirited enough to challenge the Chinese. Instead, all too often Trump is going it alone. That's a disgrace, but we happy few who love this country and honor our President are still with him!
Finally, a big thumbs down to James Comey, former Director of the FBI, who this week was rebuked by the DOJ's Inspector General for repeated violations of procedures, including leaking secret and privileged information to engineer a special counsel's investigation into the President. Comey, my only regret (and I suspect one of Trump's biggest) is that you weren't fired on January 20th, 2017. You're an embarrassment to American law enforcement, and all the book deals and CNN appearances in the world won't change that. Shame on you! You were supposed to serve the public, not twist it around your little finger.
