One of my mother’s favorite sayings was “you made your bed now lay in it.” That may sound rather archaic and rightfully so, if my mother was alive, she would have been 107 years old last month.

We now have millions of people in this country who choose to ignore the logic of the old sayings like “you made your bed . . .” because to not ignore them would put them face to face with reality, a face-off most people will avoid at all costs.

Yes, reality is very harsh an very unforgiving; the reality of what happens to you when you choose to ignore  a law is a great and current example. We have millions (no one seems to know how many millions) of people in this country who entered here knowing they were breaking our immigration laws and understanding that if they were caught they would get sent back to  where they came from. They took a chance!

Some of them were lucky and managed to stay here, hiding from our immigration enforcement agents for many years, some are still hiding, others managed to get permanent residency or even full citizenship.

Some of them were caught and deported, some were detained and then either allowed to stay because of some special program or finally deported.

Some, as we see in the headlines today, were thoughtless or irresponsible enough to bring their minor children with them.

All of them and all of us have at some point proven my mother’s generation right by being forced to “lay in the bed” they carelessly made.

All of these illegal immigrants in America however, in spite of cries off anguish and charges of inhumane treatment, can consider themselves fortunate. In may countries they would have been thrown in jail, tortured and even executed for ignoring the sovereignty of a country’s borders. Not in America!

Sovereignty — “a country’s independent authority and right of self-control.” Now there is a concept that many of the far Left and many in the media would love to ignore and/or redefine.

One China! Maybe not for long!

Since 1979, America has towed the line over China policy. Not one time in those 37 years has an American President made or taken a phone call to or from the then President of Taiwan. Correction: Not one time . . . until NOW!

The American news-media is busily manufacturing an international incident.

It was the news-media that turned a simple congratulatory phone call from Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen  (pictured above) to President-elect Trump, into an International incident and put the president-elect into a position where he had no choice but to fight back against the news-media’s hyperbole. Did they really expect Trump to say: “Hey! About all that stuff I said when I ran for president; I was only kidding?”

Make no mistake about it . . . the Liberal news media obviously did not want Donald J Trump to win his election and now after he did win, they will do everything they can to assure that he fails. That’s how stupid and egocentric Liberal journalists and commentators are! After a long 18 month lead-up to an election and after the American People have spoken up and elected Donald Trump, they still believe that their opinions and biases will make a difference to the American electorate. These people do not seem to understand that our newly elected president has millions of Americans rooting for him and wanting him to shake up the policies that have threatened the American economy and America’s very sovereignty.

Diplomats and politicians, Chinese as well as American, will eventually wake up to the fact that on January 20, 2017 there will begin a new era in American foreign relations. On that date when President-elect Trump becomes President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States we will have a president who is proud to proclaim that he is an “America First” president. And it’s about damn time!

We may not be the richest country on earth (we’re #11, behind Hong Kong), but we are the most powerful, the most benevolent, absolutely the freest and, as far as most Americans are concerned, the very best!
