Chris Koos: Trump Derangement Syndrome

By:  Diane Benjamin

At 9:26 last night Chris Koos posted this to Facebook:

Why does the left always call us a democracy?

We aren’t a democracy, that means mob rule.  Somebody wants your bike, the mob can vote to steal it from you.  That’s democracy.

We are a Republic where we elect people to represent us.  Laws matter and property rights matter.  In a democracy they don’t.

Poor Chris appears to have Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Unemployment is extremely low – record low for blacks and hispanics.  We got some of our money back from government, I’m sure Chris hated that.  Actual GDP growth is around 4% after suffering through 8 years of the last administration telling us 1-2% is the new norm.  We were told jobs aren’t coming back, meanwhile 3.2 million have been created since Trump took office.

Maybe Chris is upset because this is Illinois.  His people are running the place into bankruptcy, so we don’t see the prosperity most of the country is enjoying.  Maybe JB can polish off Illinois for good.  Until illegals aren’t on Medicaid and pensions collapse, Illinois will never prosper.

Maybe Koos is finally seeing his party has nothing to run on.  He shouldn’t stay silent.  There is no nationwide “blue wave” coming in November.  We’ve seen and heard what Democrats stand for, socialism is how to lose elections.

We were on a dangerous path Chris, we are returning to the days when the Constitution mattered.  Instead of trying to usurp the Constitution, amend it.

So speak your mind mayor, this post says nothing other than you are depressed.  Leftists should be.  I assume he is feeling like we did when Obamacare was pushed through based on lies.  Trump is cleaning up the mess Obama left for him.  It looks like Chris still doesn’t understand why he just barely won his last election.

Trump is no saint and certainly wasn’t close to my top choice, but thank God Hillary lost.  The people now working who couldn’t find jobs likely agree.  Too bad those jobs aren’t in Illinois.  Koos should be talking about that!

Maybe he can say what he isn’t going to be silent about tonight.

    • I agree, the only point he actually makes is “You must lose for me to win”. Seems to me that is the Dem party line. So, to me he is saying that his idea of change is just more of the same.

      Speaking of Lies……………..

      Keeping a strict count of President Donald Trump’s many misstatements, untruths and outright lies. Oover the weekend at a rally in Michigan, Trump hit a(nother) milestone: He topped 3,000 untrue or misleading statements in 466 days in office.
      That means that, on average, Trump says 6.5 things that aren’t true a day. Every. Single. Day. (Trump is actually picking up the pace when it comes to not telling the truth; he has averaged nine untruths or misleading statements a day over the past two months

        Diane, you are either spreading falsehoods knowingly or simply uninformed.

        Q: Was the Clinton Foundation ordered to cease operations and Chelsea Clinton charged with fraud?
        A: No. Those baseless claims were made up by a self-described “satirical” website.

        FULL QUESTION
        Has the Clinton Foundation been found to have committed fraud?
        FULL ANSWER
        The Clinton Foundation — the sprawling non-profit charity founded by Bill Clinton — has not been shut down, and Chelsea Clinton has not been charged with fraud. Those bogus charges were made in a May story about the foundation’s “newest scandal” on Clear Politics, which Facebook users flagged as potentially fake.

        Diane, you appear to have fallen for some Fake News!

        InfoWars is notorious for propagating conspiracy theories and publishing thinly sourced stories, but a search for “Clinton Foundation” on the website doesn’t return any results about it being shut down. Nor does a search for “Chelsea Clinton” produce results about a fraud charge or an arrest warrant. There were no such results on FoxNews.com, either.

        The only seemingly related story on either website was about the Clinton Global Initiative, a Clinton Foundation offshoot, voluntarily downsizing operations in January 2017. Bill Clinton had previously announced in an August 2016 letter that CGI would no longer hold its annual conferences, whether Hillary Clinton was elected president or not.

        Rush Limbaugh did falsely say “it is disbanded” when talking about the Clinton Foundation with a caller on his conservative radio show in March, but that isn’t where Clear Politics got its claims. Instead, the first half of its story originated at a prolific “satirical” website, America’s Last Line of Defense, last year.

        “At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.” https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ap-many-donors-to-clinton-foundation-met-with-her-at-state/

        There you go again Diane, the concerns of trafficking were not noted in the briefs against the Government., nor in the Governments reply.

        The U.S. government, under court order to quickly reunify parents and children who were separated after crossing illegally into the United States from Mexico, has expanded its use of DNA tests to establish paternity in immigration matters.

        The filing was made in a class-action lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union against Immigration and Customs Enforcement on behalf of parents who were separated from their children by immigration officials. The judge in that case has ordered that children under age 5 be reunited with their parents by Tuesday, and that all minors separated from their parents be reunited by July 26.

  6. “Washington’s Prayer for the Nation” (Written at Newburg. June 8, 1873, and sent to the governors of all the States) :
    Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in thy holy protection, that Thou will incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.
    And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.
    Grant our supplications, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  7. Trump has an unusual talent stack that is very well suited for solving the problems we face now. I know some of you are going to say… what is a talent stack? As a early adopter of Twitter and someone who actually teaches it to business people, I can tell you that he is a master tweeter. He uses Twitter like FDR used the Fireside chats… he directly speaks to his followers (me) in an unedited form. Non-Twitter people don’t understand what he is doing… but he is a master. He knows exactly how to change the focus of the debate and call people out. He is also a master deal maker. First he declares economic war on North Korea… brings them to the bargaining table and now is working the “Art of the Deal” on poor little Kim. So the left thought he was going to war with North Korea is beside themselves trying to understand how he could get them to the peace table. It is a lot of fun to watch the idiot left spin as one after one win is chalked up to Trump. Turns out he is not Hitler after all. My father (who fought in the Korean War) would be very happy we have a president who is making peace finally. Koos is an idiot and will go down in history who was the one who led Normal into default with the Upscale Normal $100 Million boondoggle. Anyone listening to him about anything is as big an idiot as he his.

If fact they were rewarded with huge bonuses for almost destroying our economy. This same guy who I was on stage with in 2004 and to told me he was going to stop the unnecessary wars. He then turned 2 wars into 7 and with his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s insistence turned Libya into a failed state that later became a spawning ground and weapons cache for ISS. And this guys name was Obama and talking about Trump’s love of eminent domain like it is some sort of horrible strike against him is ludicrous. It is Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who are directly responsible for making Libya into a failed state with the loss of untold thousands of lives (many of them children). Where is the outrage at the children killed or now being sold in slave markets in Libya as I write this? The left and mainstream fake news networks lose their minds about the separation of illegal immigrant children. Where were they at when our president and his rodeo goat crazy secretary of state was killing children in Libya? No big deal right?

It sends them into a babbling incoherent rant in most instances because their programming is not designed to deal with actual confrontation containing undeniable facts. They are NEVER challenged in the bubble that they dwell in, they just constantly nod in agreement and praise each other for being so brilliant and/or “woke”. I find this to be particularly true with those who have buried themselves into academia and thus manage to live a rather juvenile existence their entire adult lives.

Their movie (reinforced constantly by the mainstream corporate media) shows them the new Hitler destroying our democracy and our movie shows us a populist deal maker delivering on ALL of his promises to make America great again. They are essentially living in an alternative reality driven by lies and propaganda. This is why they act so crazy. They are not living in the real world. And yes facts are not part of the equation here. That is why you see these people not addressing the issues and using personal attacks or gaslighting as weapons. They literally have nothing else.
