What Is Wrong with America?

This evening we will set up the final presidential debate in Las Vegas tomorrow night.

In just a few moments, we'll show you why Donald Trump has to win decisively in Vegas or he will lose the general election.

Mr. Trump should absolutely capitalize on what is wrong in America because there's no doubt we are in trouble here.

First, the economy growth is less than two percent.

That means that well-paying jobs are scarce and workers have to take what's available.

The unemployment rate doesn't mean much when new jobs come with low salaries.

With all the resources we have in the USA, growth should be far more than two percent.

On the immigration front, after all these years, people still can walk across our southern border, establish residency illegally in this country and then have the government actually pay them entitlements.

Does that sound like a fair system to you?

When Kate's Law was destroyed by the awful Senator Harry Reid, critical mass was reached.

All that law would have done was require a mandatory prison sentence for a violent illegal alien felon who defied deportation.

Reid and other Democrats in the Senate killed it.

Nov. 4, 2015

HARRY REID (D-NV), SENATE MINORITY LEADER: “The new mandatory minimum sentences this bill would create would have a crippling financial effect – and that’s an understatement - with no evidence that they would deter future violations of law.  This legislation would require about 20,000 new prison beds, 20,000; 12 new prisons that cost over $3 billion.  This is yet another attack on the immigrant community.”

So let me get this straight, to punish violent illegal alien felons who cross back into this country after being deported is an attack on the immigrant community?

And the prison stuff is just untrue - the numbers of criminal aliens would fall drastically once they knew they'd be harshly punished just for standing on American soil.

The kind of insanity that Reid puts forth is why many Americans are so angry.

How about crime in the poor precincts?

Last night in Chicago, 12 people were shot including a 13-year-old boy.

That brings the total number of Americans shot in the Windy City, this year alone, to 3,476.

Chicago is more dangerous than Kabul, Afghanistan.

And it is clear that Democratic Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and Republican Governor Bruce Rauner will not stop the violence in poor black Chicago neighborhoods.

Will not stop it.

That is true racism for you PC people.

Let's go overseas.  A major battle is underway right now to remove ISIS from Iraq's second largest city, Mosul.

The hard truth is, ISIS should never have been allowed to take Mosul, or any other Iraqi territory, in the first place.

The only reason that happened was a huge foreign policy blunder by President Obama.

As you may know, he withdrew all American troops from Iraq in 2011.

Without American forces there, ISIS grew in power.

And who was the architect of that policy?  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Finally, what about our national spirit?

One word - terrible.

With all the muck, WikiLeaks, media bias and chaos surrounding the presidential campaign, Americans are disgusted.

We are a divided nation.  Most folks are voting against a candidate rather than for one and the politically correct culture that is being imposed on us by the media is rapidly destroying traditional values.

All religious Americans know that.

So it seems to me that the challenger in the presidential race -- Trump -- should have an advantage because Secretary Clinton is embracing the policies of Mr. Obama.

But it has not turned out that way.

And Trump is down to his last chance tomorrow night.

And that's the memo.
