Trump Asks "How Has The 'System' Worked Out For You?"

On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.

In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again. If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.

Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.

Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.

The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.

Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?

Thanks.

I just want to say its great to see you back Dee

The ferral guvment puts it to me hourly.  The state guvment only puts it to one or two times a day.

 This  One party system is NOT working for me  it's  all the same just different  name REP. DEM. one party . we do have  the best  Gov. that money can buy  the shame of it is  is WE the People Can't afford it . I was on the fence  But now i 'm 100% behind Donald Trump no matter what. Nice to see you back Dee!!.

For me,n or any hard working,proud patriot!It is now bring used to decide for US what is tight for US!VERY UNAMERICAN.DC IS AS CORRUPT AS ANY EU GOV'T OR ANY ASIAN GOV'T. WE THE PEO PEOPLE want a complete overhaul.Nosocialism,not
Acceptable.We want our liberties and freedoms as set up in our US CONSTITUTION,as it stands originally and must be kept as our greatest gift to the World that cherishes the GOD given right for freedom for all !GOD BLESS AMERICA

John,

    I agree with you.  Enough of this one party system.

Steven,

  I agree with You! .   enough is enough ! Nice to talk to you again  it's been awhile since i recived one of these command center forum .

Your back Ms. Dee,

a lot of people here missed you, I do not know you very well, but hey welcome back !!!!!!

Seriously? Are we bound by a system of a few greedy people or are we a free people living in the land of the free? How can this be? Colorado had an election without voters? As you can see, I have many questions here and am in need of some answers!

Tell them Mr. Trump. The system is in need of an overhaul! Not working out too well for me!

Welcome back, Dee.

This corrupt gruberment and both parties have made it impossible to actually live your life without a lawyer in hand to make sure you are following all the rules, guidelines, applications, procedures, permits, fines, penalties and permissions. oh, and LAWS. What the repukes did in Colorado was reprehensible. Yes they did it awhile ago, but dam, this process should be transparent and simple. They are TRYING to overload us with Government and Party and Media Propaganda.

We could, I bet, throw out everything that has been written, ruled, legislated, permitted, and sold to us as a package full of BS, throw out EVERYTHING that they have done over the last 40 years—AND WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF.

We the people need to prepare for fighting the enemies we have elected. We allowed the enemy access to govern.

People have COMPLAINED about this for years now, but you ask them " When was the last time YOU went to a city meeting, county or let your voice be heard at state or party meetings ? " I'll bet that is far and few between , MAYBE  4 years ago. We hear about how busy we are and how they don't listen to us, maybe if they saw US FACE TO FACE in mass they would get the message.

  We the people need to GET INVOLED , go to the school board meetings and see what they are teaching our future generations ( Civics , History ) . Don't assume that all this revisionist history and Government classes are teaching is right. They need to use the ORIGINAL DOC'S and then they can teach the real current material with REFERENCES so that they ( the kids ) can learn to be able to research and think for them selves instead of what the MSM wants them to hear.

 THE BOTTOM LINE IS GET INVOLED , IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW !

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
