Yes, Trump is Winning

Last week, I went to a dinner event at social club of which I am a member but rarely patronize. You will guess why when I tell you I ran into a friend of longstanding—someone I know well, but hadn’t seen in a couple of years—and she greeted me with the exclamation, “Here’s a Trumpster!” I could see that that was partly for the benefit of the gents she was talking to, a sort of tribal-marking announcement (“He’s one of those, boys”) but I couldn’t immediately tell whether the glint in her eye was friendly or otherwise. She soon cleared up that ambiguity. I said something about “our president.” “He’s not my president,” she snapped, adding that Donald Trump was deeply unpopular and would probably be driven from office soon.

“Actually,” I offered, “his approval ratings are on the rise.”

“So were Mussolini’s,” came the icy rejoinder.

Got it. At least I knew where we stood.

One is encouraged to leave politics at the front door of this particular club (unlike London’s “Other Club” where Rule 12 stipulates that “Nothing in the rules or intercourse of the Club shall interfere with the rancour or asperity of party politics”). But so thoroughly pink is the majority of the membership that the issue rarely arises. For the herd of independent minds, unanimity is a consoling patent of authenticity. “We all believe this, ergo it must be true—indeed, it is invisible. It simply is.”

Hence a defining irony of the contemporary progressive (one cannot truthfully call it “liberal”) dispensation: convinced that their opinions represent not their opinions but, on the contrary, that they mirror a virtuous state of nature, they regard dissent not as disagreement but as either heresy or insanity. The former calls for condemnation or ostracism, the latter for pity tinctured by contempt.

Donald Trump has introduced several novelties into this dynamic. From the point of view of my (I suspect former) friend, Trump is both (never mind the contradiction) an impossibility and an affront. Everyone she talks to knows this.

And yet on the ground, in the real world, Trump is methodically pushing ahead with the agenda he campaigned on. That includes:

  1. Nominating judges and justices who can be counted on to interpret and enforce the law but do not endeavor to use the law to promote their social agenda;
  2. Addressing the problem of illegal immigration and securing the borders of the United States;
  3. Developing America’s vast energy resources;
  4. Rolling back the regulatory state, especially the administrative overreach of agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency;
  5. Pursuing policies that put America, and American workers, first, not to the detriment of our relationships with our international partners but through a recognition that strength and sovereign independence make nations more reliable actors;
  6. Restoring the combat readiness and morale of the United States military;
  7. Simplifying the U.S. tax code, making it more competitive for U.S. businesses and more equitable for individuals;
  8. Getting a handle on the unconstitutional and shockingly inefficient monstrosity ironically called the Affordable Care Act;
  9. Putting a stop to the obscene violation of due process that Title IX fanatics brought to college campuses across the country.

And many other initiatives large and small.

In all of these areas, Trump is proceeding not as a wrecking ball but as a deliberate, if often voluble and sometimes exasperating, agent of change.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised that, if elected, the American people would start “winning” again. “You’ll have so much winning,” he said, “you’ll get bored with winning.”

Now, almost nine months into his first term, how is he doing? Real unemployment is on the wane. The stock market is at an historic high. So is consumer confidence. Illegal immigration is down nearly 70 percent. America is now a net exporter of energy. Just a few days ago, Trump declined to re-certify the malevolent nuclear deal that Obama made with Iran, winning from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu this commendation: “I congratulate President Trump for his courageous decision today. He boldly confronted Iran’s terrorist regime. . . . If the Iran deal is left unchanged, one thing is absolutely certain—in a few years’ time, the world’s foremost terrorist regime will have an arsenal of nuclear weapons and that’s a tremendous danger for our collective future.”

Just a couple of days ago, Trump, having been disappointed by a supine Republican Congress, issued an executive order that will make it easier for people to band together to obtain health insurance tailored to their needs (instead of being forced into federally defined, one-size-fits-all plans) while also ending the unconstitutional federal subsidies (unconstitutional because the money wasn’t appropriated by Congress) to big insurance companies, amounting to some $7 billion per year (the price of getting those companies on board with Obamacare in the first place).

In any normal world, these would be called significant accomplishments. But in the NeverTrump bubble, none of these victories can evade the protective refracting mirrors that intercept and distort the message. For months, the Huffington Post ran the following disclaimer after every article about Trump: “Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims—1.6 billion members of an entire religion—from entering the U.S.” Even now, according to the Pew Research Center, only 5 percent of news stories about Trump are positive.

Moreover, in the surreal and paranoid precincts of the NeverTrump bubble, fake news and outright fabrication proliferate. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is going to quit—say “sources”—only he isn’t. Chief of Staff John Kelly is keeping people from seeing Trump, is irritated by his tweets, is frustrated by the president’s behavior. Only he isn’t. As Kelly said at a press conference last week, Trump’s agenda is pursuing “what’s good for America.” Asked directly whether Trump’s tweets made his job more difficult, Kelly said “No.” Trump himself he described as a “decisive” and “thoughtful” man of action who was sometimes impatient with the slow-moving habits of Congress. His chief frustration, said Kelly, was with the press for reporting things that were simply not true. Asked by one reporter what he expected them to do, he said: “Maybe develop better sources.”

Kelly’s presser represented a wrinkle in the bubble—there are more and more of them these days—and it will be interesting to watch what happens when the wind finally changes.

Trump’s victorious battle with the NFL represents another wrinkle in the bubble. Football is supposed to be a beloved American pastime, not an opportunity for overpaid beefcakes to act out their adolescent political grievances. So far, it’s Trump:1. NFL: 0.

Over the past several weeks, one source of putative moral authority after the next has been snatched from the Left. The Harvey-Weinstein-Ben-Affleck-Oliver-Stone sexual assault nexus has broken a spell that not even mega-donations to the Clinton Foundation can redeem. When Donald Trump went to Warsaw and spoke up in defense of “Western civilization,” the NeverTrump bubble vibrated with cacophonous vituperation. How dare he!?

But he did dare, and just this week Trump upped the ante and announced that his administration was “returning moral clarity to our view of the world,” “stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values,” including those who condemn people for wishing one another “Merry Christmas.”

There’s a disturbance in the bubble. What just happened to the NFL and Hollywood is happening in many other avenues of our culture. Sometimes, when a thunderstorm is nigh, the wind suddenly shifts and picks up, the birds get nervous, and you can feel the storm arriving before the rain actually starts. I believe that is about to happen in American culture, though who exactly will be left standing out in the rain is a little unclear. I do expect, however, that fewer and fewer redoubts of anti- or NeverTrump complacency will remain as his policies continue to deliver winning scenarios for Americans. Maybe the next time I go to that club there will be less Mussolini and more comity.

  • Anne Berry DeRuiter

    Several years ago I noticed that people were giving their children more formal names: Nicholas instead of Nick and Catherine instead of Kathy. I wondered if we were going to see a cultural swing back toward a time of better behavior, more formality and better manners – maybe like the ’40s? I am hoping these current culture explosions will propel us in that direction. I REALLY hope so.

    • 419boi

      it’s 2017. You may not notice but every generation do things differently from the past. Fantasizing about the 40’s shows a mindset unwilling to grow. A sadist who think the world should operate at their behest. Rather than celebrate the world and people you are comfortable criticizing and always searching for what is wrong. Look in the mirror, you’re what is wrong with this world.

      • Bill Mannion

        wow. you’re unhappy. she was just hoping for “better behavior, more formality, better manners”, and she’s what is wrong with this world? Oh right, you’re a “progressive”.

        • Michael Meers

          What specifically about the 40s does she want to bring back? The segregation? The Japanese internment camps? You can’t just point to a period in time and claim that everything from then was perfect without acknowledging the flaws. It’s ridiculous to claim that their was some halcyon days of the past where everything was better and we should aspire to return to that better. It ignores history and simply points to ignorance of our own past. I doubt people were ‘more polite’ simply because they had more formal sounding names.

          • sotto voce

            Are you referring to the segregation and Japanese interrnment camps that were implemented and defended by Democrats? We are human and will always have to deal with good and evil, but there is nothing wrong with yearning for civility and decency even when the worst among us practice unspeakable wrongs. If we at least cling to kindness and manners reminds us that we are capable of higher things.

          • sotto voce

      • CapitalistRoader

        it’s 2017. You may not notice but every generation do things differently from the past.

        I’m fantasizing that commenters use understandable tenses and at least try to remember to capitalize the first letter of a paragraph.

        After all, it is 2017.

  • Forbes

    What is amusing is the ankle-biting media, i.e. the Pew survey mentioned above found that 2/3s of the reporting on Trump was about his personality, while 1/3 was on policy, is so slanted, they hope the public doesn’t notice Trump’s progress on policy. The media just bangs away–as in the Puffington Host editor’s note–hoping The Narrative sticks, e.g. racist, sexist, et al., as if The Big Lie repeated is a novel concept, and the knuckle-draggers won’t notice.

    • ajwpip

      I wonder if they are helping us by focusing on fantasies like this. One could mount a credible critique and resistance to Trump’s policies if one was sober and substantive. This hysteria allows him freedom to operate in some ways. If only the republicans weren’t useless how much could be done!

    • Forbes (?) writes, “What is amusing is the ankle-biting media” LOL, exactly. Big media followed this imbecile president like dogs following a boy with a stale ham sandwich. Trump is a stale ham sandwich with an image of Jesus. Except the Jesus part. We elected a lying orange fence post president.

    • MoreFreedom2

      It seems so important for progressives/socialists to out people for the politics, as the author states to condemn, ostracize, and pity. I wonder what a politically unbiased psychiatrist would say of them. I hate to bring up Nazis, but it certainly reminds me of them and how they treated the Jews, because it did start with condemnation and ostracization. And they relentlessly refuse to accept the outcome of an election, after telling Trump he should.

      They seem pretty messed up mentally to me. Perhaps Scott Adams got it right: they all told us Trump was worse than Hitler, and now that’s what they want because otherwise means admitting they’re the idiots they’ve shown themselves to be.

      • Matthew_Snow

        Ironic to compare liberals to Nazis. Seems like Trump was the one who said there were ‘some good guys’ in the Alt right March rife with Nazi symbolism.

        • Dicky

          He said there was good people on both sides. And there were. Not all of the folks protesting the removal of those statues are racists or members of any racially motivated group. Not all folks protesting against the statues/ethical deviance of Nazi and KKK groups are members of the cowardly/anarchist Antifa. Your President told the truth, but you prefer to obfuscate because the truth doesn’t fit your desired narrative.

          • Matthew_Snow

            I didn’t see any of those good people objecting to KKK symbolic torches or clearly nazi symbols. And nary a Robert E. Lee sign or chant. They were white nationalists. All you had to do was turn on your tv to see that. Guess that live footage is fake news now too.

          • Dicky

            Haha what a terrible argument. I watched what happened as well. I didn’t see leftists objecting to Antifa’s tactics or anarchist messages. What we all saw was a brawl between a bunch of cowards end in tragedy for some good people. There were good people on both sides, just because you didn’t see a video of one them stopping to argue with Nazis doesn’t mean they weren’t there and haven’t spoken up for their perspective. The same goes for those who didn’t stand up to Antifa. Btw real Nazis were socialist progressives :).

          • acidulous

            Don’t tell the dimwit that. He and his ilk have been trying to change the definition since it was revealed someone with their politics was a monster. So they settled on being big admirers of Stalin, who murdered many millions more.

          • SensibleStater

            It was very selective news footage. Nobody is denying that the were pinheads there, but there were also others just protesting the revision of history.

          • Dave781

            What makes you think that someone who was just protesting the revision of history would march with the KKK and Nazis? They wouldn’t. The “good people” protesting the removal of the statue are just a figment of your imagination.

          • SensibleStater

            Are you saying that good people were not there also. Antifa is just as bad, maybe worse, than the KKK and Nazis. From what I have heard, the girl that was killed was a “good person”. I can envision many of the people that I went to college with in the state of Virginia participating, as they are proud southerners, but they were not KKK or Nazis.

          • Michael Meers

            Just as bad, maybe worse? Really? You actually typed those words? A group of people who represent white nationalism, genocide, racism, and terror are maybe not as bad as the group that protests them? Do you think the one group would exist if not for the Nazi’s and KKK?

            I don’t think antifa’s tactics will reach their desired goal but how can you argue against their goal of eliminating the influence of Nazis?

          • LionHeart0712

            And I, an independent and die hard President Trump supporter, would like to get rid of all you ult leftys but I believe you are free, you can “speak” whatever anti USA propaganda you want, the line is provoking violence as in Virginia.
            We’ll get rid of your influence at the ballot box. But keep pushing violence and that will take yous out for good. Either way you are done!

          • Michael Meers

            So the actual Nazis, including a member that ran over multiple pedestrians, do not get the blame but the people protesting said Nazis do? Ok guess we know which side of WW2 you would have been on.

          • LionHeart0712

            Glad you said “guess”. I have no dog in the hunt.
            If anti protesters didn’t show up and insight violence, there would not have been violence and there would not be a dead girl.

            Twist much?

          • Michael Meers

            How do you blame everyone but the group that actually ran over people?

          • whyIoughta

            First it’s a pedestrian that got hit, now it’s a group of pedestrians that got hit, and now the whole damn group ran over people versus one driver, whose group he identified with is under wraps? Michael, are you a grown up?

          • Michael Meers

            We’ve all seen the video. Nobody incited the guy in the car to plow into a group of pedestrians. He was not being attacked.

            By your own logic if the Nazis weren’t there the protestors wouldn’t have been there and no violence. But you keep blaming everyone but the actual person who killed someone and what brought him to the rally that day.

          • Yoda0060

            You can’t be so brain-dead as to make that comment and actually believe it. We’re talking about events that occurred 70+ years ago – and you’re still clinging to them. How very sad!

          • SensibleStater

            Their goal is not eliminating the influence of Nazis. Their goal is to silence, using violence when needed, anybody who does not agree with their pro-gay, pro-baby killing, pro-illegal, ani-Christian, anti-manufacturing agenda… so, yes, I typed those words and I stand by them. Antifa is the antithesis of what this country was founded on.

          • LionHeart0712

            It isn’t really about those issues you list, they use those to get votes. It is about Socialism, the plan is to get people, useful idiots, to vote for them so they can gain power. Elite leftys actually don’t like gays as much as Christians. They do like abortion to control mostly minority population, they don’t really like minorities other than to get their vote just look at how the Dems. keep minorities with hands out and keep them wallering in S. If we could be flies on their walls we would see. I’ve known, still do, many Dems. lefty and other, many of them are the most racist, anti gay and men that see woman as sexual toys, look at Hollywood and the movies, shows.
            It comes down to Socialist ideology. They treat Conservative minorities, gays, women and so on, horribly.

          • frankstclair

            If the left had the power, all those they deem deplorable would be killed.

          • LionHeart0712

            Exactly!

          • Michael Meers

            Any actual evidence for that assertation?

          • frankstclair

            Shooting at congresscritters, beatings of Trump supporters, Democrat killing Republican neighbor, Kathy Griffin with her severed head photo…….gosh, no indication at all. Oh yeah, the fact that every leftist government in history, just about, ended up by killing mass quantities of citizens. Like, you know, the hero of the left, dear Che.

          • Michael Meers

            But somehow Nazis aren’t as bad. They stand for actual genocide, racial superiority, antisemitism and authoritarianism.

            You are claiming a whole lot of things antifa is agaisnt. I’ll give you a clue it’s right in the name, they are anti fascist. You claim all kinds of motivations for them not in evidence and unsupported. But all I have to do to show what the Nazis want is take a look at the daily stormer and their own quoted goals.

            You somehow are on the side of the people in WW2 that used gas chambers on millions of their own citizens and see nothing wrong with it. Might want to reflect on that.

          • NDForever

            Huey “When fascism comes to America it will be called anti-fascism.”

          • Michael Meers

            What’s the position then? Nazi’s are ok because they only want jews and nonwhites to be second class citizens or exterminated but antifa uses tactics you don’t like?

            Again I don’t like antifa’s tactics. I think the violence is counter productive. Doesn’t make actual Nazi’s good people. I can dislike both groups but you seem to be defending Nazis including the guy who killed someone.

          • NDForever

            I don’t seem to be anything of the kind. You’re a bit sensitive for someone who says he doesn’t like antifa tactics, but appears willing to tolerate them as long as they are bashing Klanners. Maybe you never heard of this but the US Supreme Court has held that even the Klan has first amendment rights. Antifa thinks otherwise. So where do you stand? Does the Klan have first amendment rights to protest things they don’t agree with? Or just nice, but confused folk like yourself?

          • Michael Meers

            That quote is not actually anything that Long said. Some attribute the quote as ‘When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in a flag and we’ll call it something else.’ I have found other formulations of it but never the one you used. Also all the contemporaries thought Long was speaking about the Klan when he said it from everything I can find. Not exactly helping your case out.

          • NDForever

            Yours is attributed to Sinclair Lewis, but never mind.

          • Borealis

            No, they are Anti-F.A. (as in, First Amendment). To claim that an organization that acts like fascists is against fascism is laughable, and everyone with a brain sees right through it. Names are meaningless; the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is proof enough of that, since it’s made health insurance virtually unaffordable for millions of people. But as for Antifa’s motives, they’re most certainly in evidence. Shutting down any speaker whose words they cannot stand to hear, with open violence, makes their motives clear.

          • Michael Meers

            Again I think antifa is wrong in the use of their violent tactics. I said that multiple times now. Do I think advocating against white nationalism and Nazis is worthwhile, yes. Seems a lot of posters here disagree. The one poster even said antifa is worse than Nazis despite the fact that one of the Nazis ran into a crowd of people with a car and they advocate genocide.

          • Yoda0060

            So, what are we Americans supposed to be so frightened by, in respects to either the Nazis or white nationalists, that is so important for us to be protected from? Personally, I just ignore them, like all the other crazies out there. As for the bullies from Antifa and BLM. those are the dangerous ones that actually frighten me.

          • Michael Meers

            Depends on who you mean by Americans. Your aren’t the one that Nazis and white supremicists want to see exterminated or made into second class citizens. Being of pale skin you won’t have to worry if they get their way.

            I have said several times in this thread that Antifa’s tactics are wrong and counter productive. I think counter protesting works but using violence besides being illegal is wrong and won’t achieve their desired result. Ridicule works better at making racists ashamed of their views whereas physical resistance makes them think they are persecuted.

            BLM groups, if you actually read their mission statements, have some very reasonable demands as far as police training and community interaction go. There are of course people who chant things like kill cops and fry piggies and I think they are wrong. But you easily dismiss white supremecists calling for genocide so I see no reason why you can’t do the same here unless you have some other reason not to.

          • whyIoughta

            Are you sure the driver of the car was a Nazi? Because I see that he was a socialist, Bernie supporter…..

          • Yoda0060

            So when was the last time that Nazis involved themselves in something in this country, in the past 50 years, that somehow resulted in the loss of life, aside from their partial responsibility, in the incident that recently occurred in Charlottesville? Personally, I would be far more concerned about a group of Antifa or BLM members coming near me, than I would be of a bunch of Nazis.

          • frankstclair

            If you’re not for us, you are against us. How Nazi of you.

          • Michael Meers

            When did I say anything even close to that sentiment?

          • NDForever

            I’m in agreement with limiting the influence of Nazi’s and, hence, I’m for the investigation and prosecution of Antifa.

          • Borealis

            Because that’s not their actual goal. Their actual goal is the overthrow of the United States government. When one uses the exact same tactics as the Nazi Brownshirts, cloaking your actions with righteous rhetoric about ‘opposing Nazis’ doesn’t hide the truth. Antifa are a combination of Nazis (tactics) and ISIS (costume). They are a domestic terror group, and should be labeled as such and prosecuted, all the way to their primary benefactor, George Soros.

            Do you know why the KKK only has about 4,000 members now? Less than a century ago, their membership was in seven figures, and they openly paraded at the Democrat National Convention in 1924. So what happened? Democracy happened, that’s what. Nobody forced them to shut up; they had the right to freedom of speech, and they used it. And people listened to them, and decided they were morons. And thus, their numbers declined to the point where they should be placed on the Endangered Species list. All thanks to the First Amendment, which Antifa is (of course) opposed to.

          • Reimund Krohn

            And I would add: The funder of Antifa, whom you mention, George Soros, actually WORKED for the Nazi’s, and assisted in the confiscation of property from the Jews of Hungary in WW2. He has never repented of that, and even laughed about it on 60 Minutes. If Antifa is really against Nazi’s then why do they let one of them FUND them?!!

            ליברל נבער

          • Reimund Krohn

            Stop saying “Nazis” like such a thing exists as a real movement in the United States. What kind of a shill do you have to be to call everyone who opposes you a “Nazi”. Do you not understand who the Nazis were?? How dare you project this delusion on the American people, and perpetuate your hateful narrative. It is “Antifa” who are the fascists, banning language and opposition and assaulting all who oppose them! These are the brown shirts of our time, you imbecile!

          • Michael Meers

            In this case I am calling the group that self identifies as Nazis as Nazis. Not exactly a stretch seeing as they brandish all the paraphernalia and ideology of the historical group.

            I have said several times that Antifa’s tactics are wrong, even as I think opposing Nazis and White Supremicists is the right thing to do. Stifling free speech through intimidation and violence is counter to the ideals of the first amendment. At the same time we are not too far removed from a war with a group that was genocidal. If these groups had their way and actually were exterminating large groups of minorities and jews physical resistance would be warranted and neccessary.

          • Kraythe

            Nazis are Socialists. KKK Was started by democrats to intimidate black republicans after the civil war. No the parties didn’t switch in the 60s, blacks started voting for Democrats under FDR in a faustian bargain. Naziism cannot exist without autocratical control of everything from education to reproduction. Trumpists seek LESS government control. MAGA people seek the government out of their lives. There is only one party in America advocating full government control down to what you are allowed to say and think. That party is the democrats. The Charlottesville thing was between two LEFTIST groups, just like the clashes between Hitler’s brown shirts and communists. Nothing has changed. Leftists devalue the individual and value the state, a facet of socialism, marxism and fascism.

            Get educated please.

          • Michael Meers

            Oh I have read all about these issues. The southern strategy under Nixon did exactly what you claimed didn’t happen. Nixon deliberately appealed to the discontented southern whites after Johnson passed the civil rights act. The south went from solidly democratic to republican over the course of 3 election cycles and has been republican ever since.

            Yes southern white democrats started the KKK during reconstruction. The parties have shifted quite a bit since then. The Democrats are now a progressive party and Republicans conservative. This is all easily documented. Simply waving your hands and saying it didn’t happen does not make it true.

          • NDForever

            Hmmm. Have you seen some sign-in sheet for the march? If your making judgments based on a handful of photos and some videos you have seen, you’re the most naive consumer of news I’ve ever come across.

          • Dave781

            I am basing my judgement on the fact that Nazis and the KKK ORGANIZED the march, not on any videos. I am capable of making the judgement that anyone who joins a march ORGANIZED by Nazis is not a good person no matter what the alleged purpose of the march is. It has nothing to do with statues.

            Now we have to take into account what you “see”!

            Garbage.

          • Matthew_Snow

            In 1933, the Marx brothers had a great line ‘who are you going to trust, me or your own lying eyes’. Quite a statement that Marx brothers jokes can’t be grasped by Trump followers.

          • Joe_NS

            What’s Quite amazing is that you’re such a birdbrain that you expect now to pretend that your use of the word “see” above was a “joke.”

            Get lost, you creepy troll.

          • Matthew_Snow

            Somehow you can’t follow. What happened was not a joke, what you are saying could well be followed by the Marx brothers line. Get it?

            One could see with your own eyes the marchers and hear what they were saying, which was white nationalist if not nazi. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what ‘blood and soil’ comes from. Any you deny this, essentially because your desire to be right blinds you from applying common sense.

          • Joe_NS

            And you don’t get it at all, your farfetched invocation of the Marx Bros. notwithstanding. There is a certain crowd of mediocrities who imagine that shoehorning Grouch into a discussion is equivalent to writing QED at the end of a logical demonstration. It’s not. And in your example, it painfully an irrelevant imposture.

            It’s obvious, however, that matters must ever be kept very, very simple in your case. The evidence you are offering and have offered is what you saw. Got that, moron? What you saw on a television screen, the images of which were beyond reach of cavil or quibble selected to to instigate phony politically correct outrage in the collection of imbeciles known as the progressive left.

            That was it. What “you saw” was all you offered. I did not see the enormity you did, which is to be expected. I’m not you, the point being—and I really should not have to bring this up—that no one is obliged to take seriously what someone else claims to see. Accordingly, I would never proffer what I didn’t see on tv as evidence of anything.

            So please, just go away, you creepy little troll.

          • frankstclair

            Funny you would use the name Marx. Karl comes to mind when you speak.

          • NDForever

            It seems that your position is that anyone who opposes the dismantling of Confederacy statuary is either a Nazi or a member or sympathizer with the KKK? Is that your belief? It strikes me as tremendously ill-informed, but pray tell, is that what you believe?

          • Matthew_Snow

            Of course not. But I didn’t see marchers who’ through words or symbols celebrate the gallant war of northern aggression. I did hear ‘blood and soil’ and see torches, symbols of the Nazis and KKK respectively. Based on that alone, it looked like the preponderance of the marchers were using Lee as ‘cover’. Tell me how ‘blood and soil’ relates to the civil war other than the racist aspect.

          • NDForever

            The point is this. You see a bunch of photos of KKK sign carrying trash. Immediately you assume that no one else, ordinary folks with an interest in preserving historical memories of the Civil War and statuary commemorating confederate generals/soldiers were not also present for their own purposes. TV reports at the time talked about protesters who were not associated with the KKK variety being their to protest the vandalizing of historical statuary. Your comments assume all of them are KKK adherents. Hardly true, but you have nothing to show otherwise. Pictures of guys carrying KKK signs does not mean other legitimate protesters weren’t there. Now you say, the “preponderance”. Please define for us what makes a “preponderance” for you? But even a preponderance means some were NOT as you say sullied by association with the KKK folks. You should chill out and don’t get beyond your actual brief.

          • Matthew_Snow

            Preponderance: most of. if you need me to define that, your time would be more productively spent elsewhere. Looked like the preponderance of people were crashing torches. Zero who I saw had any non-racist Civil War symbols. Probable were some.

          • Matthew_Snow

            Goes along with supporting the Vietnam war shirking Trump (I can play sports but I can’t go to war) and opposing the hero and patriot McCain.

          • Matthew_Snow

            This is what a leader and hero says, in an obvious reference.

            “We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil. We are the custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad. We have done great good in the world. That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did. We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”

          • Kevin Pearson

            If McCain had taken his service and his flight training seriously, he would not have been shot down

          • Yoda0060

            Yeah, good ole John “songbird” McCain. Called a hero by those back home, but a snitch, by those who shared the luxuries of the Hanoi Hilton with him. I understand John was quite the movie star, in and around Hanoi, where he appeared in 30+ propaganda films for the North Vietnamese.

          • NDForever

            Anyone who thinks you can make the judgement you made from a handful of photos posted on some website needs to rethink how they exercise their judgment.

          • Matthew_Snow

            It was extensively covered on tv. They won’t show everyone, but I saw hundreds at least, and the only symbols I saw were those of racist organizations. I said preponderance, acknowledging a mix. That is a rational inference. As opposed to your ‘because I said so’.

          • Matthew_Snow

            In other words, a racist wrapped in a flag is still a racist, to a patriot.

          • whyIoughta

            I am white and I love my country, therefore I am a White Nationalist. I am not any other -ists or -isms with which you try and label me. In fact, you regressives and your identity politics can take your box and shove it.

          • Dave781

            Yes, ALL of the “folks” marching in a Nazi/KKK protest are members of the KKK or Nazis. Good people who are opposed to the removal of the statue in Charlottesville did not march with Nazis.

        • James Hendrixs

          Ironic that you support a virulent form of national socialism while pointing the finger at someone trying to expand freedoms and reduce government. But hey, that’s what the left does.

        • acidulous

          It’s not “ironic”. Liberals aren’t “liberal”. They are the fascists in America today. BTW – there is no such thing as the “alt right”. That’s just another fascist smear.

          • Matthew_Snow

            Ok, I’ll say “racists” instead. You guys basically use words describing concepts you don’t understand. You can’t be both socialists and fascists. Although it’s much easier to throw “ists” labels that sound bad.

  • Dan Schwartz

    At least Roger wasn’t called a “Trumpanzee” by his erstwhile “friend” — I doubt she’s a die-hard Cruzlim, either.

  • sancho panzo

    Trump has more competence in the tip of his little finger than ten thousand obamas have in their whole bodies. He must be doing something right or all of those academic fools,pigs feeding at the public tough, clueless feckless incompetent fools who have been in charge for the past 8 years would not hate him so much. The louder their chorus, the better trump is doing

  • The winds are indeed blowing in President Trump’s favor, as they did for Ronald Reagan after the American people began to realize he was not the dullard and warmongering ogre the press depicted him. There are still pitfalls for Mr Trump though, especially the Big Lie of ‘Russian Collusion’ in the campaign, and the hanging posse the Special Prosecutor Mueller has assembled, digging for any misdemeanor that might linger in the pst business dealings of Donald Trump or his associates. That these dark suits might succeed is the great unspoken hope of the anti-Trumpers in the Deep State, and maybe in the Congress, too.

    The real collusion, of course, is among this cabal of deposed Obamunists. At some point, either the President or his erstwhile Attorney General (or a replacement) will have to take action to neuter or defeat them. See here for more:

        Upside down US flag? How is socialism working out in Caracas? Are the people of the DPRK well-fed? It seems progressive socialism is at a dead end! There is no hope for you, only reminders of impotence and failure every day until 2024.

    • Matthew_Snow

      Just to pick one.. ‘XL approved for construction using American steel’. Apparently you don’t understand that the President doesn’t get to tell businesses what to buy and who to buy it from. It’s called capitalism. I could go on, but it would be a wasted effort.

      • JamesDrouin

        Hey, STUPID, let’s do talk stupid … the government, and in this case, the government headed by President Donald J. Trump, can and does and has been imposing terms and conditions on capitalism FOR MORE DECADES THAN YOUR WORTHLESS EXCUSE FOR A CARCASS HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE.

        Now, “I” could go one, listing MILLIONS of those terms and conditions, but you have demonstrated a level of ignorance, laziness, and stupidity that not even God can explain.

        Any other “STUPID” remarks you want to post???

        • Matthew_Snow

          Sure! What I said was widely reported. When there are existing laws, the president can apply them. When there is no law existing, like one requiring private construction projects to use American steel, the President can not ‘make one up’. That’s how our system works.. have to start with the basics it seems.

          • JamesDrouin

            Oh, so your EXCUSE now is that you brainlessly repeated some stupidity you heard on the news … I am sooooooo impressed.

            Now, go to your parents, and apologize to them for being a failure.

        Well aren’t you special? Picking out ONE thing you think is wrong. My, my…petty little person!

    • Kuhu Kweli

      XL – approved for construction using American steel.
      This is incorrect. Trump granted waiver.
      I will not call it a lie on your part because I do not know you or your intent.
      Some of the others things on the list, too many to list, are wishful thinking since they haven’t happened, at least not in this world.

      • JamesDrouin

        It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant, lazy, and stupid Democrats, entitlement monkeys, and liberals are.

        You could have found that info in less than 30 seconds.

        Oh, and just an FYI, don’t depend on the Fake News, Very Fake News, or other such brain dead groups such as the Democrat Party or Snopes for your ‘fact checking’ … they’ve been LYING TO YOU for more decades than you’ve been alive.

        • tom f

          James, lots of insults about ignorance and laziness, but apparently Kuhu did better research than you –

          “White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says that’s due to language in a presidential directive Trump issued in January. Sanders says the directive applies to new pipelines or those being repaired. She says it would be hard to do an about face on Keystone because it’s already under construction and the steel has been acquired.”

          The quote is from a FOX news station.

          • JamesDrouin

            OMG, OMG, OMG … you mean President Trump is NOT telling pipeline companies, who have already bought billions of dollars of line pipe (the stuff used to make pipelines), that they have to scrap all that perfectly good steel and spend even more billions???

            Do you have even the first clue about ANYTHING???

          • Insanitea

            You said that XL was using US steel and when it was pointed out that you were wrong, you accuse others of being clueless? How does that work, exactly?

          • JamesDrouin

            Ahhh … so you ARE clueless about EVERYTHING!!!

            Including the myriad reasons why President Trump is “winning”.

            I do so enjoy watching your covfefe fits!!!

          • tom f

            James, You make a mistake, and then insult the person who points out your mistake. When called on that, you again spew insults while trying to pretend you never said it. James, you are the reason for the discord in this country. You are a sad man, or maybe a Russian troll.

          • JamesDrouin

            Ahhhh yes, even though the EOs exist, and they’re publicly available, and you’re ignorant of them, and you’re too lazy to find them, and you’re too stupid to apply critical thinking, according to you, somehow I’m the one who made a mistake.

            You’re completely clueless about why President Trump is kicking your bvtt, aren’t you.

          • tom f

            James this is your post –

            “XL – approved for construction using American steel”

            not mine, not Kuhu’s. It is just plain wrong. All your insults won’t change the fact that you were wrong. And by the way Trump is kicking no one’s butt. He has either failed or not succeeded in most of what he’s tried to do.

          • JamesDrouin

            Fact: The EO’s exist.

            Fact: The EOs specifically state US manufactured steel must be used.

            Fact: President Trump supports America business (contrary to you and your America-hating friends), thus they do NOT extort pipeline companies by making them scrap their multi-billion dollar inventories simply to replace it.

            Fact: YOUR swimming in the River Denial is YOUR problem … just as your LYING in an attempt to salvage your hurt feelings over President Trump “winning”.

          • tom f

            Fact: Neither Kuhu nor I denied the existence of the E.O.

            Fact: Neither Kuhu nor I denied that the E.O. required American steel.

            Fact: You specifically said the XL pipeline would be built with American steel.

            Fact: The White House admitted that the XL pipeline would not use American steel.

            Fact: Both Kuhu and I corrected your mistake on the XL pipeline.

            Fact: In defending your error, you keep attributing to us things we never said.

            It’s obvious James, that you have to rely on lying about what people actually said, rely on calling them names to justify your own mistake. So good bye.

          • JamesDrouin

            Hey, tommie boy, did your group of village idiots tell you that “monkey see, monkey copy” was a really ‘smart’ tactic???

            Ah well, be that as it is, since you’re all monkeyed up on words AND you indirectly assert to be really, really, REALLY familiar with the two EO’s at issue, maybe you can help …

            Can you show me the place in the EOs where it states that XL shall be built “ONLY” or “EXCLUSIVELY” with US steel???

            Hey, if you can find that, maybe you can find the spot where “I” state that XL shall be built “ONLY” or “EXCLUSIVELY” with US steel???

            Now, if you CANNOT find those two spots, don’t hesitate to ask your village idiot buds, you know, the “monkey see, monkey copy” crowd.

          • tom f

            Geez James can you ever write a civil post or are you programmed to be a jerk. I followed your style hoping that you would be able to understand both what you said and I said. Apparently I was mistaken about your ability to understand or your ability to accept what you yourself said.

            But I did follow your request and read Trump’s Executive Memorandum (not Executive Order, I know I’m splitting hairs but that seems to be your modus operandi) and you’re right it does not mention anywhere about exclusively using American steel. In fact in does not mention using American steel anywhere in the memorandum. Here’s the link.

            https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/01/24/presidential-memorandum-regarding-construction-keystone-xl-pipeline

            Since you have been demanding that Kuhu and I read the executive order (actually memorandum), I have to assume that you already did. So apparently you were well aware that it contained no instructions or mention of American steel. So all I can conclude is that you knowingly lied in your original statement –

            XL – approved for construction using American steel.

            and lied in every subsequent post concerning American steel.

            So James, post again. Post another lie. Post more insults. As I said above James, You are a sad man.

          • JamesDrouin

            Okay, now that you’ve admitted to being ignorant of the issue, really, really, really, bvtt-ugly ignorant, AND both too lazy and too stupid to perform adequate research on an issue, do you have any other confessions on your failings as a human you want to make???

            Hey, dumbflvck, YES, YOU, TOMMIE BOY THE SELF ADMITTED IGNORANT, LAZY, AND STUPID DUMBFLVCK, THERE ARE TWO EXECUTIVE ORDERS!!!

            And, not only that, I POSTED LINKS TO BOTH YET YOU MANAGED TO FIND ONLY ONE … ARE YOU RETARDED???

            Here, you stupid dumbflvck, READ BOTH EOs:

            No Lionheart, bad behavior (like name calling and insults) is on the person perpetrating it not the person receiving it. And yes I returned an insult hoping that he would see what it was like and change his behavior. As you can see that hope was in vain.

          • JustData

            Social Security is earned by Americans who paid in their entire career. It’s only a handout when foreign nationals get citizenship and then get SS without paying in much.
            Welfare is a handout that Grandma should be ashamed of if she was on it for most of her working life.

        Ahhhh … a witless poster with the avatar of a pre-pubescent 12-year old has taken the motto “monkey see, monkey copy” and converted it to “monkey see, monkey lie”, what a surprise.

        To pick another, the XL didn’t go “through” Native American territory,

        either way, but refused when the builders had offered to pay to go
        through it.

        Oh, and it’s not “humane” to protect people from deportation. They’re doing it for Democrat votes, not charity.

    There won’t be more comity.

    They don’t understand, none of their predictions have borne fruit, and they are frustrated and angry as hell.

    It will only get worse.

      Yes, and, alas, that cloud bubble of the fabricating American media still influences media outside the USA, which tries to report real news. I see the ‘chaos’ meme infection, because I mostly read news reported elsewhere. POTUS and FLOTUS have been doing an outstanding job in the conduct of foreign relations, efforts almost totally ignored by our hysterics. It is the American media, including the global StyleCultureFashionMedia, that is the great threat to America, not Russia!

      It would help if our clear-eyed pundits, like Roger Kimball here, would notice this.

  • Roy_Lofquist

    “Nothing succeeds like success.”

  • geokstr

    Is there any evidence whatsoever that an actual, real conservative would not have done far more, and much faster than Trump, but without the foot-in-mouth clown show? I guarantee you he had no clue who any of those judicial nominees were until someone else compiled the list for him, nor which regulations to go after.. He’s getting so much credit now from the Trumpets for sounding so presidential, when it’s obvious he’s still very much uncomfortable reading from a teleprompter the words of others.

    We had such a conservative, who could give better speeches than Trump’s off the top of his head because the words come from deeply-held principles. His debate skills would have crushed the Red Queen in all three debates, and his experience, knowledge and organizational skills would have had him on a fast track to trump Trump’s record from Day 1.

    Then the RINOs and the media allowed Trump to pull off a sleazy, dirty, dishonest campaign and steal the nomination because the media thought he’d be the easiest to beat and the RINOs knew he’d be easier to box in and manipulate. They were both right. Trump nearly lost in a year when everything was going against the Marxists, and look how the GOPe has him in a cage, unable for any conservative voice to get to him.

    I don’t even have to mention his name, because the alt-right Stormtroopers will be here in a flash to show you what hate speech really looks like.

    • MarkInKansas

      That “true” conservative you’re referring to was my guy. I even sent Ted Cruz some money.

      There’s never any evidence of what would have been had we done something different. There’s only evidence of what we did.

      I’m thrilled that Donald Trump is President. He keeps the leftists distracted with his words while he accomplishes the agenda unimpeded and nearly uncriticized. As I said, there’s never any evidence of what would have been. I know that I see no evidence now that Senator Cruz possesses any skill in the “sleight of hand” which Donald Trump is skillfully now using.

    • ek ErilaR

      Who do you have in mind as being a “real conservative,” Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell?

      • GlennPMorris

        And this: RINO’s are on the run in AZ and TN and the post election wins in GA and elsewhere are just a warmup for the main event in 2018 with Bannon running interference.

    • JDL

      Ted Cruz, your ‘true conservative,’ wouldn’t have had a chance against the Clinton machine. We hired Trump specifically because he is NOT a ‘true conservative’ spewing daily about abortion while the world spins around him. Many of us that were former Republicans now independent totally REJECT the notion of ‘true conservatism’ in governance, understand that winning elections is much harder than just losing them, and that an electoral college win takes inclusion rather than judgmentalism and litmus tests. Witness the Democratic party surging leftward and how completely out of touch they have become. NeverTrumpers–we are watching you!

      • traeh

        Cruz was respected by conservatives, but there was a charisma deficit there. People are tired of overprocessed professional politicians, and Cruz was highly processed. He would have been hated by the left almost as much as Trump is, but would not have had the ability to drive events and the media the way Trump has done. For his supporters, Trump has charisma and even many who hate him admit that he gets ratings. I doubt Cruz ever mobilized such support and interest when he spoke. Cruz, however sincere he was, often sounded a little inauthentic, or like an actor who can’t act but tries to pretend anyway. Furthermore, he did not transgress political correctness of the Republican sort, which is not all that different from the Dem kind of PC. Trump dealt with the elephant in the room that required the most courage to deal with: Islamic immigration. The whole establishment was not dealing with that issue — some sincerely, but perhaps a third or half out of sheer cowardice before the twofold threat of the PC police and the worldwide jihad. Trump was the only one who both understood and had the courage to try to begin to deal with the situation. Even Bush had gone the PC route of calling Islam a religion of peace. Trump did the “unthinkable” — announcing that there is “something going on” with the religion and that “they hate us.” He proposed an immigration moratorium. Others either thought that monstrous (wrong), or just did not dare make such a proposition. At this point, I think Trump has a chance to succeed as president. I would not support him if I believed the willful misinterpretation that calls him racist. At the same time, I can understand how someone would misinterpret his words about Charlottesville. I think he deserves some blame for not speaking clearly enough in the beginning, although anyone with a little bit of thoroughness and good will should have been able to see that Trump meant nothing racist by his remarks and was not saying that there were good people in the Nazis or KKK. Just watching the whole video where he spoke initially about the situation makes that perfectly clear, especially if one knows Trump’s history.

        • JDL

          Agreed! Republicans have to use extra care to avoid leftist labeling as bigot, misogynist, racist, xenophobe. The left likes very much to make the labels stick as it avoids any need to actually debate issues. Calling Trump racist makes it unnecessary to discuss black violence, BLM, or black on black shootings.

        • bsetrader

          This time around, conservatives learned and did not fall for the media preferred and safe choice, like Romney in 2012. And what did the media do to Romney, who was scandal free and supposedly squeaky clean after the primaries? Tax dodger, latent sexist, and the same old play book of the left. Trump reminds me of Jonathan in Rollerball(movie)!

Hey, did you see that Bergdahl, the ‘war hero’ that Obama traded for 5 top radical Islamists is on his way to Leavenworth? Or that the Iran deal he paid $400M in cash ransom to get through is now decertified? Perhaps you haven’t heard that Obamacare took a big hit last week or that the regulatory state is being peeled back. DOW @ 22,950. Gun rights secure. Getting on to campus free speech and looking for next conservative supreme court judge. North Korea officially on notice and the UN told to feck off. If I live another 100 years, I can only hope never to see such a stooge as Obama again and to hope another president accomplishes half of what Trump has gotten done in his/her first 6 months.

          • Danny Alt

            Please explain how your (possibly valid) argument that Obama was less than a good president, thereby makes Trump a good president.
            In addition, please explain how one who is critical of Trump, and deservedly so, is “no doubt” a past political supporter, and 2 time voter, of Obama.

          • JDL

            IMHO, Trump is a reaction to Obama. He has exposed corruption that Obama and the media were complicit in hiding. He has yet to prove himself a good or bad president. Name calling (bigot, racist, xenophobe, misogynist, moron, imbecile, insane, narcissist) is not intelligent critique of the United States president and connotes only one’s hatred, to which by the way, they are completely entitled. People hated Obama; people hate Trump. Welcome to America where the experiment in self governance continues to pay out.

            Here is your new playbook;

            Spring 2017: “Trump is Hitler!”

            Summer 2017: “Okay, Trump isn’t Hitler. But he’s incompetent!”

            End of year 2017: “Crap. He’s effective. But we don’t like it.”

    Being a bully and winning a fight are two does mean you are winning in a lasting way. Here’s a piece by Charles Blow in the NYT. I am sure the writer and the institution are anathema to you and your commenters, but I think you should read what he says and consider it instead of promulgating your stream of ad hominem arguments against Obama and the Dems. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/15/opinion/columnists/trump-spite-obama-legacy.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=opinion-c-col-left-region&region=opinion-c-col-left-region&WT.nav=opinion-c-col-left-region

      • hollywood

        Thanks for the editing assist, Mark. Now let me assist you. When arguing the merits of a piece it helps to marshal facts to support your opinion. You don’t do this, so apparently there are no facts, just the usual “[the writer I disagree with] sucks.” You should know that Trump’s ill-fated attempt to disrupt Obamacare is going to increase premiums 20%, cost the federal government $194 million, increase the ranks of the uninsured, etc. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/16/16480438/obamacare-trump-csrs
        You might ask yourself, “Why?” Because he can? Because he’s a fool? Because his idea of winning is for him to win and the rest of us to lose? What’s the rationale? Where’s the logic?
        For that matter, where’s the logic of making our nation a laughing stock with his brinksmanship with North Korea and Iran?
        If you want our country to lose standing in the world and our government to become mired in the daily chaos that is Trump, you’ve got your man. But why not think about where this is headed? http://robertreich.org/post/165912138010

    • Michael A. Schimp

      I read that piece. In summary, Blow tells the reader that Obama is smart and classy, therefore he is the greatest president ever. What a bore. Having trouble falling asleep, read the NYTimes comment section, snoozarama.

    • Matthew_Snow

      Brexit is indeed taking hold: “Ben Martin, the founder of the BrexitTracker (a dashboard that reviews more than 130 economic indicators) says: “Since the referendum, Brits are already spending 9.9 per cent more on their foreign holidays, 7.5 per cent more on fuels and 5.50 per cent more on tobacco and newspapers. And we’re getting paid less, as overall wages only grew by 0.30 per cent, far below consumer inflation.”

      • DisgustedwithElitism

    As Mr. Trump is demonstrating with his Executive Orders, that which can be done and undone with a pen and phone, can just as easily be undone and done with a pen and phone. His accomplishments in partnership with a feckless and inept Congress are nothing more than equivalent to the accomplishments of Obama in his partnership with an obstructive and resistant Congress.

      Me too. I was initially in it for SCOTUS because the mere thought of Hillary appointing as many as four new justices was just too horrible to contemplate, not to mention the tsunami of the cynical corruption that would have slithered into office with her. President Trump, while definitely an imperfect, occasionally crude
      bull-in-the-china-shop guy, is a vastly superior solution to Hillary who, had she followed the 8 horrid years of Obama could very probably have finished us off.

      • Dr.Megan

        The thought of Hillary as president definitely motivated me to vote Trump, probably more than anything else could have.

  • yikesboy

    Chaos, dysfunction, and a long list of stymied legislative efforts is what our current President has brought to the office. And although I’m sure someone here will decry all the polls as being ‘wrong’ and in the hands of the ‘elite media’ (or worse), his ongoing sub 40% approval rating must be a hit on that king-sized ego of his and a thorn in the side of his diehard supporters. It’s sad that the SC appointment of Judge Gorsuch remains his single biggest accomplishment. And his current skirmishing with the use of executive orders towards the Iran deal etc only shows how bad things are with a party that completely dominates the legislative branches of government.
    He is wholly unprepared to be in Washington, and it’s truly sad to watch.

          The arrogance of the Dems and their media psychophants was breathtaking. It was pure joy watching them break down on election night.

  • Daniel Brezenoff

    As usual, you demonstrate that delusionality wins out over accepting defeat. he has no accomplishments that are not gimmes. Every single thing you listed, he had the power to do unilaterally once he was elected. Executive orders and judicial appointments. That’s about it.

    Nothing that requires convincing people or negotiating. Because he has no skills in those areas whatsoever.

    Furthermore, most of what you listed is unpopular with the American people. He is fulfilling the wishes of one third of the country and pretending it’s a popular mandate. But meanwhile his biggest promises remain untouched.

    And no, his popularity isnt on the rise. Sure, after it hit record lows of 37%, it went up for a week – wow, all the way to 41! – while the nation united after three huge hurricanes and a mass shooting.

    But it’s trending down again already, and remains far and away the worst rating of any modern president for this time in the term.

    Wishful thinking and willful delusionality is all you have.

    These are the death throes of the Reagan era. Enjoy.

    • Dave781

      Death throes of the Reagan era? Trump is the opposite of Reagan.

    • yikesboy

      Agreed. I think that the death throes are not only due to his crazed ignorant flailing, but also the steady march of demographics that dooms his most ardent supporter base of rural/exurb white men. Every election sees the decline of this demographic, and in 2016, even he was surprised he won. It’s over even if Trump manages to get to that elusive 50% approval range.

        • yikesboy

          If you remove economic ‘accomplishments’ — after all economic trends are longer term and not applicable for Trump until 2018 or so at the earliest — there’s precious few to talk about: No Mexican funding for the wall; we’re still in NAFTA (but complaining about it); Obamacare still in place (although hobbled and destined to punish some of his poorest supporters); playing with the Iran deal against the best advice from his own team…sadly the list of shame is long. The Climate Accord was a stupid and shameful act that represents nothing but ceding leadership to other countries. It seems that everyday he sullies the office with his willful ignorance.

      • David Lilly

        Whatever it is, it is far better than what the marxist community agitator with the funny sounding name ever did. Now that we have a President who does NOT have deep, twisted loyalties to those whom he should not we will not add the sound of an Iranian nuke to the top of the former leaders “sweetest sounds I ever heard”.

      • CapitalistRoader

        Can you imagine what the US would be like if that corrupt, warmongering old bitch had got in? She had four-times the defense contractor contributions to pay back vs. either Trump or Sanders. It’s scary to think how many “conflicts” we’d find ourselves in.

        Thank all that’s holy that we aren’t facing that nightmare.

  • David Lilly

    Woe is upon the country as they fondly recall obama and his .9% economic growth in his final full quarter of his presidency. Remember how all the obama fan boys, led by Paul Krugman and his ilk, testified to America that 3% GDP was of a bygone era and now an impossibility ?
    If you think they hate President Trump now just you wait for the sure fire coming of 4% GDP.

    I wish President Trump could get more of his agenda through Congress, remember that only the gop hated obama as you ponder the hatred for the President from both parties.
    Not to worry. Reality will crush the ACA unlike no limp wristed Arizona senator could ever dream. Well, reality and actually obeying the law that determines what the federal government can legally fund.

    Here is hoping for a Hillary?Sanders pairing in 2020 !!!!!

      It is the Nationalists/Populists who are going to impose totalitarian poverty on us with their protectionist trade policies.

      • CapitalistRoader

        I don’t think so, Dave. Unlike Obama, Trump has almost certainly taken standard, non-Marxist economics and US history classes. He of course knows that the Great Depression was caused by idiotic protectionist tariffs.

        In all likelihood he’s just negotiating for better deals.

        • Dave781

          Almost certainly he has taken economics and history? Maybe, but he didn’t learn anything. That is probably why his college grades are a secret.

          Until recently Trump didn’t even know that the government could print money and he didn’t know that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. The list of things Trump doesn’t know is a very long list indeed.

          Given his long history of supporting protectionist (and even mercantilist) trade policies it is very unlikely that he knows that the Great Depression was caused by protectionist tariffs. In Trump’s mind “better” trade deals means deals in which the US has higher tariffs. And if you really believe in free market capitalism you should favor free trade.

        Nonsense. They will renegotiate these policies so they don’t hurt the country in order to make a very few people rich.

        Meanwhile, globalists use environmentalism and climatism to shut down modern industrial economies , transfer wealth to other countries (but not their own), and create an international superstate.

        • Dave781

          So you think trade hurts the economy in order to make a very few people rich? That means that you are opposed to free market capitalism and favor a government planned economy – you know, socialism. That is what I mean by totalitarian poverty.

    I strongly recommend that Never Trumpers watch the new Ken Burns series on Vietnam, the whole thing. Because they are like the generals, bureaucrats, and politicians who kept fighting a war at huge cost long after it had been lost, because they refused to admit the reality.

    • Pat Woods

      Vietnam was winnable, early on.

      Defense Secretary McNamara devised a plan in early 1965 to build a mile wide DMZ from Hue on the Vietnamese coast all the way to Laos, and up along the Laotian/North Vietnamese border, all the way to China, in the most ambitious version of the plan.

      Much like the DNZ separating North Korea, South Korea or between Nato/Warsaw Pact nations in Europe.

      Fences, mine fields, artillery fire bases every 4-5 miles, special forces in Laos, US military units further south in northern S. Vietnam, all to stop the flow of arms southward along the budding Ho Chi Minh Trail.

      In early 1965, when it was proposed, it would have cost $1.5 to $3.0 billion for the really ambitious option, and would have required 2 yrs to build.

      Instead the US command dithered, and implemented half measures, trying to scrimp and save money.

      State Dept. never got the foolish Laotian Royals on board, who were mostly rounded up and murdered in 1975 by the Pathet Lao Communists, when they organized and overthrew the Laotian monarchy.

      The NVA turned Laos and Cambodia into a super-highway of arms shipments, and the rest is history.

      The US ultimately spent $173 billion and we suffered 58,000 military personnel killed.

      We should have chosen the $3 billion barrier option in 1965. It would have prevented NVA personnel and arms infiltration, for the most part.

      • JohnnyClams

        Fantasy. It wasn’t just the NVA; it was the fact that 70-80% of the rural population hated the SV government, and huge majorities North and South simply wanted foreigners out of their country–French, Japanese, and American. We fundamentally miscalculated the war, seeing it primarily in Cold War rather than nationalistic terms–and as a result, the Communist were able to assume leadership of the nationalist movement. We had an early opportunity to work with Ho before the Viet Minh was replaced by the Communists. We ended up supporting a corrupt regime incapable if not unwilling to defend itself. And totally underestimate the patriotic sentiment of the Vietnamese and confused it with communist ideology.

        Many of our problems today flow from the radical failure of our elites then, as now. We keep repeating the same mistake.

    “Actually,” I offered, “his approval ratings are on the rise.” Nope, it is declining, mostly (from 44 in january to 38 now, or from 40 to 38 in the last month), his favourability Rating is also declining; from 44 in Dec. to 39 now (even 41 was very low for a president elect). Direction of the Country is 63.5 wrong track to 28.5 right track.
    So nope again, it Looks like the majority is not behind Trump.

    Trump fights back ACA: Nope, he lost, ACA is still here (Obama 1 – Trump 0 ; even though Obama isn’t even playing…). Trump also promised to give us a better solution, but now, he is only cutting back health care, without a better solution.
    The tax code is still in the air (and may make a very hard landing).
    Infrastructure is nowhere on the horizon, and the wall won’t be built anytime soon either. But yeah, Trump is winning, because People still belive him when he brags about his winning.
    And yes, he won against the NFL, but does that make my life better?

  • bloopville

    I have heard many people report that “Trump’s approval rating are on the rise.” Statistics are my hobby. You can only make the case that Trump’s approval rating are on the rise if you take his lowest rating and track it against now.

    There are polls that show him consistently in the mid -20s in differential between “approve” and “disapprove” like Gallup and Reuters/Ipsos. And, then there are polls that show him in the low to mid -teens, like Rasmussen and Economist/YouGov. If you pick a day in which the polls have been skewed to the highest unfavorable rating, and then track it against one of the more favorable ratings, then you could make the case that his favorability is improving. But, if you look at it in larger time blocks, his unfavorability is still within a point and a half (statistical noise) of his all time low. Basically, he seems to have permanently lost about 54% of the American public, and only some drastic change in condition (war with Korea or say, 2 years of 4% GDP growth) will change that.

    It is possible. For the first 3 years of Obama’s second administration, his favorability differential was also in the negative mid-teens. He was consistently in the positive his last few months (they compared him to both Hillary Clinton and Trump). So, it is possible to regain the support of Americans, but, at this point, Trump is a long way from that.

    So, what is the upshot of this? For passing his domestic agenda, Trump doesn’t need to be in the positive. He only needs to retain high favorablity among his base (this also has statistically weakened, with a shift from highly favorable to favorable, in some areas). But, if we were to embark a shared national adventure, like a war, then his unfavorability would tear the country apart, if the war lasts longer than a short period. This is the fate of all presidents with low approval ratings.

    • Matthew_Snow

      Well done post. There’s a level ‘somewhere’ (high 20s/30) where backers peel away, as they no longer feel threatened. It is possible that the mishandling of some event could get Trump there; he hasn’t been tested with any crisis yet, but he has still struggled with responses.

      • George Dixon

        Like most Liberals, you can spell Fascism but have no clue as to what it was. Fascism was a Marxist inspired national socialist Italian movement.

        “he (Mussolini) was rewarded the editorship of the Socialist Party newspaper Avanti! Under his leadership, its circulation soon rose from 20,000 to 100,000.[34] At this time, Mussolini was so familiar with Marxist literature that in his own writings he would not only quote from well-known Marxist works but also from the relatively obscure works.[35] During this period, Mussolini, like all revolutionaries, considered himself a Marxist and he described Marx as “the greatest of all theorists of socialism.”[36]”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benito_Mussolini

        • Matthew_Snow

          Yes, he was a socialist when he was young, when he was the editor of Avanti. He was kicked out of the Socialist party, and formed the Fascist party, which became virulently anti-communist. Kind of like calling Reagan a democrat because he was one in his youth.

          • Matthew_Snow

            Fascism is considered hard right, profoundly nationalistic by the way. Sound familiar?

  • Pooch15

    This is so well written and packed with truth right up until ” “stopping cold the attacks on
    Judeo-Christian values,” including those who condemn people for wishing
    one another “Merry Christmas.”” What I’ve seen is those who condemn people for wishing one another anything but “Merry Christmas.” That war started because business owners dared to include their customers/clients/patrons of all beliefs who celebrate during that time of year. Daring to say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” brought calls from good Christians to boycott and destroy the livelihood of those who would dare not to say “Merry Christmas.”

    I love this article. Sadly, I can’t share it.

  • Tomas Vallidulur

    I think one of the worst side effects of this election, is to have people I have worked with and liked all these years, in spite of their wacky liberalness, turn so mean and horrible. I still have to work with many of them, but my opinion of them has totally changed.
    Inside- I do not like them nor do I have the respect I used to hold for them. They are nasty, and rude and say the rudest things about President Trump and conservatives. It is ugly and horrible. They have shown me an anti conservative bigoted side of them, that has altered my perception of them for good.

    • James Hendrixs

  • RAM500

    Regarding the Republican Congress defying Trump at every turn:
    Today, we read reports that Russian bribery, extortion, etc. led to the Federal approval of a deal to give %20 of our uranium to Russian interests. This happened under Obama and, of course, Democrats including Hillary were implicated but not brought to justice. But I have a question: Since the deal was unanimously approved in Congress, which Republicans were personally part of that? Don’t we owe them the favor of rejection in the next primary?

    • Dave781

      Today? That uranium story is a lie that came from the book “Clinton Cash” which was published YEARS ago. It was a lie then and it is a lie today. So where did you read these lies TODAY?

  • buckwheat

    I love the MERRY CHRISTMAS thing. Trump clearly enjoys saying this. He enjoys saying things that the left says “you can’t say” and nothing makes the left madder than showing them they don’t have the power they think they have. And getting away with it.
    Do you know anybody who is offended by MERRY CHRISTMAS? I don’t. Yet somehow everyone cowers to this mysterious “they” that does not allow us to say it. Instead of saying “Christmas” people say “the Holidays.” Advertising is more likely to use “the c-word that women hate” than they are to use the word “Christmas.” What really drives me up the wall is the singular use of the word, if somebody is referring to December 25 instead of a broader time period they call it “Holiday” instead of “Christmas.” Just who are these dictators of what we can and cannot say? Who gave them the power? Who is offended? If you find somebody who is offended by Christmas why aren’t they taking a diversity training class?
    Again Trump is winning! I heard a New York Times writer on a financial show on the radio the other day talking about the best time to buy airplane tickets for Christmas. He actually said “Christmas” twice when he meant Christmas. Astounding.

    • Dave781

      Exactly – who ARE these people who tell us that we can’t say “Merry Christmas”? They seem to exist only in your head.

      • buckwheat

        Somebody has convinced us they exist. This is why a friend will ask me “Where are you going for the Holidays.” There is a different answer for: 1) Thanksgiving, 2) Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 3) New Year’s Eve, and 4) New Year’s Day.
        Trump is making it fashionable to say “Merry Christmas” again. Not the most important thing he will accomplish but I like it.

  • Sean

    The best off-the-cuff response to a boorish “Here’s a Trumper!” indictment in the kangaroo court of leftardedness might be: “Well, you’re a Kunstler!” followed by a comic pause and the follow-up “You know, the great lib attorney Wm. Kuntsler!”

  • Rightway

    I know what I would have said to that NeverTrumper imbecile at the club–after I threw my drink in her face.

  • But let’s not overlook that everything good accomplished by Trump can and inevitably will be overturned by a future President and/or Congress.This is the inherent volatile nature of the humanistic government of, by, and for the people based upon capricious man-made traditions.

    The following example illustrates the disparity between man’s ever-changing standard and Yahweh’s never-changing standard:

    “Two people could have walked down any U.S. street in 1930 – one with a bottle of whiskey under his arm and one with a bar of gold in his pocket, and the one with the whiskey would have been a criminal whereas the one with the bar of gold would have been considered a good law abiding citizen. If the same thing happened in any U.S. city in 1970, the one with the whiskey would be the law abiding citizen and the one with the gold bar would be the criminal.” (W.W. Turner, The Amazing Story of the British Sovereign (Nashville, TN: 1970) p. 4)

    In a mere forty-year period, man’s standard had completely reversed itself. The same transposition of ethics has occurred innumerable times under all governments based upon the traditions of man.

    “…Constitutionalists believe the superiority of the United States juridical system is demonstrated in that even Supreme Court decisions can be overturned and made right by either future Supreme Court justices or by constitutional amendment. But history has proven the opposite is more likely. Furthermore, the injustices that often occur in the interim between a bad decision and a better decision would seldom, if ever, occur in a Biblical court.

    “Nothing demonstrates this fundamental defect better than Roe v. Wade, which constitutionally has provided for an endless number of infants to be murdered. While Christian Constitutionalists wait for the Constitutional Republic’s system to (they hope) correct itself, millions more infants are being murdered. Under Yahweh’s law, not one infant would have been murdered.

    “Even when wrong decisions are overturned, they can be overturned again by a later court. Judicial records expose this capricious tendency of the United States juridical system:

    ‘…law not founded upon absolutes is very dangerous to society. Consider that without absolutes, the Supreme Court has reversed itself over 100 separate times!’28

    “The actual number is more than double this figure….

    “Judicial “standards now change as rapidly as the Justices. This causes an uncertainty for society; and, in fact, often establishes a dubious standard which, in effect, is no standard at all.”30 Unlike the Bible, the Constitution is not an infallible standard. Returning to a more “pure” constitutionalism is not the answer. The answer is found in returning to Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments….”

  • Lamont McAmis

    I am a fellow writer, although not a professional, an admitted amateur. But I just wanted to say, at the risk of being considered impudent, That Mr. Kimball, his article “Yes, Trump is winning”, while incisive and right on the money regarding the liberal, destroy Trump media and their agenda, seems none the less just a little sophomoric, if you will forgive me. He seems to be reaching to impress readers with his vocabulary rather then using less arcane words to get the message across clearer and to reach a larger readership. And thats the idea, right? For example, where he uses the word “putative”, he could have simply used the word “philosophical”. And where he uses “voluble” he could have used “talkative”. And where he states “pity tinctured by contempt” he could have said “pity with contemptuous undertones”. Having a large vocabulary is great, especially for a writer, but I think that needs to be balance with the prime objective of getting your idea across. Just a suggestion from a humble amateur.
