Top 10 US Presidents Of All Time

Check out this cool list of the Top 10 Presidents of all time!

Published

on

The conventional ranking of US Presidents has been done by leftist historians who, lets face it, hate America and all that she stands for. As such, those rankings are completely useless.

Politiscrossing has put together this list because we believe that a pro American list would be more valuable to the American people, and in helping to educate the next generation.

Number 10: Dwight Eisenhower — “Ike”.

Ike was a great man even before he ran for President. After all, he led the Allied coalition that defeated Nazi Germany in World War 2. But his accomplishments as President were very impressive. He presided over an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity. He ended the Korean War, stood firm against Soviet aggression, and Federalized the National Guard to enforce a desegregation order in Arkansas.  Not too shabby.

# 9 Andrew Jackson — “Old Hickory”

Jackson was the founder of the Democratic Party, and was the first populist elected to the Presidency. Like Ike, he was a war hero before he ever ran for office. He also had the distinction of being the first candidate to have a presidential election stolen from him, the election of 1824. Jackson fight against a central bank and the monies interests, and stood for the common man. He was also a serious badass and not a man to be trifled with. He had a hair trigger temper and would engage in a duel at any perceived or real insult.

# 8 Richard Nixon — “Tricky Dick”

Richard Nixon will forever be remembered for Watergate. That’s unfortunate, because Nixon was a seriously great President. He ended the Vietnam War.  He engaged in detente with the Soviets, thus lowering the chance of nuclear war. He opened the door to normalizing relations with China. He broke the back of segregation in the South with the Justice Department. He won the biggest Presidential election victory in US history, defeating his opponent by over 18 million votes and 520 electoral votes. And his finest hour came in 1973, when he staunchly stood with Israel as she was on the brink of annihilation in the Yom Kippur war and ensured her survival by overruling his advisers and sending Israel a massive amount of weapons with which to Defend herself and launch a massive counter attack.

Oh yeah, and he was the 3rd person to ever have a Presidential election stolen from him, the 1960 election, where JFK’s dad, LBJ, and Richard Daley worked together to deny him wins in Illinois and Texas.

Number #7 Thomas Jefferson — The author of the Declaration Of Independence

Jefferson was also a great man before becoming President, by virtue of his penning the greatest document in human history, the Declaration Of Independence.

But as President, his biggest accomplishment was the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the size of the United States, and laid the groundwork for her rise to great power status. He also defeated the Barbary Pirates, who were the Islamic terrorists of their day, engaging in piracy and taking over 12 million European, American and Middle Eastern slaves.

# 6 Teddy Roosevelt — “Teddy”

Teddy was America’s most vigorous President, engaging in daily physical activity. The man would go on long hikes, engage in calisthenics, box, and swim, daily!  He also helped negotiate the end of the Russo-Japanese war, and used America’s incredible might to spread her influence in global politics. He built the US Navy into a world class fighting force, and used it to great effect in promulgating his “Speak softly and carry a big stick” brand of diplomacy. And he too, was a war hero before he ran for President, winning the Medal of Honour for his insanely brave charge up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War.

 

#5 James Monroe — “The Virginian”

James Monroe was one of the many Virginians who became President in the early days of the Republic. His main contribution as President was to create the Monroe Doctrine, which warned off European and other powers from interfering in the domestic and regional affairs of the nations of the Western Hemisphere. The Monroe Doctrine has been a cornerstone of US foreign policy ever since, for over 200 years. It is the most successful Doctrine governing policy in world history, because is was not seriously tested until the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. The United States has for the most part, successfully kept foreign powers out of its backyard, and retained its influence in the region as a result.

#4 Donald Trump — “The Donald”

Donald Trump’s one term Presidency is the most successful single term in American history. He defeated ISIS, signed 6 (six!) peace treaties, moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and created the single greatest economy of all time. He created the lowest unemployment rate for women, blacks and hispanics ever.

Trump put his money where his mouth was when it came to helping black Americans who have been unfairly singled out by the justice system.  He signed the First Step Act, which overturned much of the racist impact of Joe Biden’s 1994 crime bill. That crime bill, championed by Biden, over-sentenced and over-incarcerated two generations of young black men. The impact of this heinous bill, which Democrats Biden and Clinton are largely responsible for, on black families cannot be overstated.

Trump also tackled the pandemic and rebuilt the US economy which was devastated by it. His Operation Warp Speed created a vaccine against the virus in record time. He delivered 3 solid Supreme Court Justices, and hundreds of other judges who will interpret the Constitution, not legislate form the bench. And he did all this in the face of the most virulent hostility ever faced by a President,  attacked by the legacy media, Hollywood, and the entrenched political class of both parties. Bravo.

#3 Ronald Reagan — “The Gipper”

Reagan was another outsider who won the Presidency and delivered big for America. He was the first pro-life President, and took a strong stand against abortion and infanticide. His tax and economic policies were wildly successful, and enabled him to create the longest peacetime expansion of the US economy in history. His policy of “peace through strength”, massive military build-up, as well as his mindset that the Cold War needed to be won by America, represented a break with the decades-long bipartisan foreign policy consensus.  This allowed him to rally America to defeat the Soviet Union in the Cold War, ending that decades-long conflict in record time.

He gave America her confidence back, and thoroughly demoralized the left and laid the groundwork for a patriotic American Renaissance. He gave us Justice Antonin Scalia, and because of Reagan, the forces that hate America were on defence for a little while.

#2 Abraham Lincoln — “The Great Emancipator”

Lincoln freed the slaves, and kept the Union together. He ended the stain of racism that was infecting America’s soul, and preventing it from living up to the ideals of the Declaration Of Independence. The Emancipation Proclamation was a beacon and model for spreading human liberty that still stirs the soul. The Gettysburg Address, which he delivered after the horrible carnage of the Battle of Gettysburg, is the greatest speech of all time. Lincoln has the power to inspire Americans and freedom-loving people all over the world, over 150 years after his death. Remarkable.

He was the first Republican President, and his original platform has informed the Republican party and its stand for human liberty, national unity, and limited government ever since. The generosity in his soul and his magnificent temperament were unmatched. He was able to deal with many prickly personalities to keep his Cabinet together and functioning well, all united in favour of his vision to keep the Union together. Like Trump, he too, faced vicious attacks from the media of his day, and handled them all with good cheer and a Christ-like understanding and even love for his detractors. He represents the best of America, and justifiably earns his spot as the second greatest President of all time.

#1 George Washington — “Father Of Our Country”

Washington is the greatest President of all time for one reason only, but it is one heck of a reason. He was the first President, and as such had an opportunity shape that office in any way he chose. He could have become dictator for life had he wanted to, and would not have faced any real opposition.

But he refused to do that.

He served 2 terms, and then went home to Mount Vernon to live out his days. There were many who wanted him to become a dictator, a king, a “savior’ to his country.  But to his everlasting credit, he would not do it. By doing so, he bequeathed America a true Republic, and prevented her from becoming a quasi-banana republic, where the powerful mouth the slogans of freedom, but don’t mean it, and oppress the people to their own benefit. Had a lesser man been President, one who had succumbed to the temptation to permanently seize power, there would be no America as  we know it. The freedoms we enjoy, the example we are that inspires so many from around the world to want to be Americans, exist because George Washington was a great man.

Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind: California and its Epic Wildfires

Published

Like the 2018 Camp Fire, California’s Dixie Fire is epic. It has burned more than 220,000 acres and at least 40 structures. It’s the largest conflagration since the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise. Sadly, California wildfires are becoming as common as Florida hurricanes. Why is this happening and who’s to blame? In a word, California.

By mismanaging its forests and water sources and enabling a power provider to place profits over people, the Golden State has sown the wind and is reaping the whirlwind.

Why is every California fire season scarier and more destructive than the last? The reasons can be boiled down to these:

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Less Stress, Starting Now

  1. Decades of forest mismanagement caused by environmentalists shaping policy
  2. Co-opted Northern California watersheds and water supply diversion
  3. Hotter temperatures and historic drought conditions caused by climate change
  4. Failing PG&E infrastructure
Forest mismanagement

We live five miles from the southeastern edge of the Dixie Fire. Our little mountain town of Quincy is under an evacuation warning. Many of our fellow residents live in areas of mandatory evacuation and some have lost their homes. Local firefighters and forest experts have known for years this was inevitable.

It’s common sense, really. When forest undergrowth and dead limbs and logs are allowed to pile up between trees, you may as well stack logs at their bases and light a match. Wise forest managers remove forest floor fuels and keep forests from growing dangerously dense.

Foolish forest managers allow undergrowth to flourish in order to “protect” ecological environments of certain species at the expense of overall forest ecology. This hands-off approach is pushed in Sacramento by those who think we’re only one species sharing our environment rather than caretakers of our environment.

Wise gardeners prevent weeds from diverting moisture from produce plants by removing them. This ensures a healthy garden. Why wouldn’t smart forest management include removal of undergrowth and dead or dying trees?

Water diversion

A few years ago, state biologists “gill-netted” vast quantities of fish in our local Silver Lake in order to prevent them from feeding on a certain frog. This decimated the fish population in favor of the frog population. How is this an ecological balance?

Similarly, allowing natural water sources to feed rivers and streams provides better hydration for trees—and raises critical moisture levels for forests. Diverting water from Northern California sources when levels are low exacerbates the deadly dryness of moisture-starved Sierra forests. Shouldn’t there be a better balance based on water levels?

As climate change continues to affect moisture and heat, smart and balanced water management becomes more critical. Yet California continues to base policy decisions reactively rather than proactively. If Northern California watershed areas burn for lack of moisture, poor water management will be partially to blame.

So will California’s reliance on hydroelectric power over traditional (and more effective) fossil-fuel plants. The state gets nearly 2/3 of its power from non-fossil fuel production, which is why it has to buy electricity from states like Oregon, Arizona and others.

Failing PG&E

Failed PG&E power lines are responsible for devastating California wildfires for the last five fire seasons. According to PG&E’s initial report the day the Dixie Fire started, an employee responding to an outage noticed a blown fuse at Cresta Dam in a heavily forested area of Butte County around the Feather River Canyon. He found two blown fuses and a tree leaning on a power conductor. He also found a fire on the ground near the base of the tree.

When the 2018 Camp Fire erupted, a PG&E employee noticed flames caused by a faulty transmission line in Feather River Canyon. Many of these lines are supported by electrical towers from the early 1900s. PG&E customers pay modern rates for modern electricity delivered via century-old towers.

In fairness, PG&E is finally taking steps to modernize its infrastructure with underground line burial and other measures. Sadly, these measures are long overdue and are too little too late for victims of the Camp Fire and now for those dealing with the Dixie Fire. Worse, PG&E seems to be continuing their foot-dragging regarding reporting system failures when they point to a wildfire start.

Closed market

According to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), PG&E ignored regulations that require it to report wildfire-related infrastructure failures within two hours of the event. PG&E took five days to report the Dixie Fire-related failure to CPUC. As a state agency, CPUC answers to Governor Gavin Newsom and Sacramento politicians. PG&E is supposed to answer to CPUC, yet is still failing to follow the rules.

Not only is there a lack of meaningful accountability, the relationship between California and PG&E is dysfunctional. The average citizen wonders why Sacramento continues enabling a repeat offender of a power company. Another question is why California refuses to open up its utility market to competitors in order to force PG&E to modernize its infrastructure.

Something has to change or California will continue to burn every fire season. Close to home, people in our community love living in Northern California, but the Golden State will lose even more citizens if residents have to flee the flames every summer.
