#TheResistance Crumbles: #SCOTUS Justice Gorsuch Plus 4 More

This is the story of three missiles. One missile is surrounded by 58 other Tomahawk missiles that struck at Syria. Another missile is the heat seeking missile Obama Dimocrats fired at President Trump. This second missile has gone rogue, changed target, and instead of chasing President Trump is now fixed upon Barack Obama’s leading-from-his-behind ass and about to penetrate that well used tunnel.

The third missile? Gorsuch. Neil Gorsuch. Associate Justice to the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch. That’s the missile with the biggest payload. This multiple warhead missile will keep destroying its targets for twenty, thirty, or forty years.

As we do, President Donald J. Trump expects to appoint more missiles to the high court. As we do, President Donald J. Trump believes there will be four more:

President Trump believes that he will have the opportunity to pack the Supreme Court with five judges, making him only the seventh president to appoint a majority and potentially cementing his legacy and that of the conservative court well past 2055.

Today the Scalia replacement. Probably in June the Anthony Kennedy replacement. The relatively young Clarence Thomas at 71 will resign too and President Trump will appoint a much younger version.
We suspect Stephen Breyer will recognize the ceaseless 5-4 victories will not validate his continued presence away from retirement. After that, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will succumb to a life away from the court too.

At today’s ceremony at the White House, President Trump slathered Justice Anthony Kennedy with so much praise it reminded us of that line from The Women. As chimes play in “Black’s Fifth Avenue” department store one woman asks “What’s that?” The other woman responds “The bums rush in melody dear.”



Do you hear those chimes sing Justice Anthony Kennedy?

President Donald J. Trump is ready for the Kennedy retirement. Politico has the details:

After Donald Trump wrapped up his first speech to Congress and worked his way through the crowd, he lingered on his handshake with Anthony Kennedy, the 80-year-old Supreme Court justice.

The boom mics picked up their seemingly private conversation.

Say hello to your boy,” Trump said, “Special guy.” “Your kids have been very nice to him,” Kennedy replied. “Well,” Trump said, “they love him, and they love him in New York.”

While the White House is focused this week on shepherding Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, through the Senate confirmation process, the president and his team are obsessed with the next possible vacancy. [snip]

One back channel is the fact that Kennedy’s son, Justin, knows Donald Trump Jr. through New York real estate circles. Another is through Kennedy’s other son, Gregory, and Trump’s Silicon Valley adviser Peter Thiel. They went to Stanford Law School together and served as president of the Federalist Society in back-to-back years, according to school records. More recently, Kennedy’s firm, Disruptive Technology Advisers, has worked with Thiel’s company Palantir Technologies.

In fact, during the early months of the Trump administration, Gregory Kennedy has worked at NASA as a senior financial adviser as part of the so-called “beachhead” team. Both Kennedy boys were spotted at the White House last month for the administration’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration (Justice Kennedy is Irish Catholic). In February, Ivanka Trump attended oral arguments of the Supreme Court with her daughter. She was a guest of Justice Kennedy. [snip]

Those close to Trump’s judicial-selection process stress that they’re not pressuring Kennedy to hang up his robe, only seeking to put him at ease.

Um, “only seeking to put him at ease” is the bum’s rush in melody dear. Those lines of communication from the Trump family and allies should have Chuck Stumbler and his Obama Dimocrats worried sick.

That list of of potential Supreme Court appointments? That’s also a list of potential President Trump appointments to the Appellate Circuit. Many of those soon to be announced appointments are undergoing F.B.I. background checks. Neil Gorsuch is not the sole move on the judicial chessboard by President Trump. And, after Neil Gorsuch, it all becomes easier for President Trump which is why we understood the Obama Dimocrats would filibuster – even though that was a suicide move.

Because of the extreme foolishness of #TheResistance Obama Dimocrats, which we have laughed about for a while now, even CNN recognizes that Obama Dimocrats are as fertile as dildos without batteries:

Democrats have zero leverage after Gorsuch [snip]

The exercise of the “nuclear option” returns Senate procedures to what they were 15 years ago. The filibuster was simply not employed for partisan purposes against a nominee who had majority support before Harry Reid started filibustering George W. Bush’s lower-court nominees in 2003. (Infamously, the Senate denied Miguel Estrada an up-or-down vote seven times to prevent Bush from later having the opportunity to elevate the first Hispanic justice.) Reid used the “nuclear option” to eliminate that sort of filibuster a decade later, so perhaps this week’s action should be called “thermonuclear.” [snip]

The next nominee. By filibustering the milquetoast Gorsuch despite the high probability and repeatedly expressed intention of the Republicans to go nuclear, the Democrats have destroyed any leverage they had over the next nominee. Should there be another vacancy under President Trump while the GOP controls the Senate, there will be zero incentive for the President to moderate his choice. It’s not at all clear that Republican senators such as Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other “institutionalists” would’ve gone along with a “nuclear option” to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a nominee more controversial than Gorsuch. But now they won’t face that dilemma.

Until President Donald J. Trump, Republicans have faced an ugly dilemma with appointments to the Supreme Court:

Whoever said you can’t win by picking unwinnable battles never said it to Chuck Schumer. Democrats opted to fight the good fight, which tends to undermine future attempts to fight the winning fight. This represents a role-reversal of sorts for Democrats and Republicans. Until recently, conservative legislators played Charlie Brown kicking the football to the role of Lucy pulling it away played by Republican presidents, whose stealth nominees invariably revealed themselves as liberals once on the court.

Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court. But because Republican presidents nominated the likes of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, and David Souter, liberal majorities ruled the Supreme Court throughout the lifetimes of just about everybody reading this. The phenomenon, captured in the title of Patrick Buchanan’s 1975 book Conservative Votes, Liberal Victories, effectively meant a veto on conservative laws, particularly ones passed at the state level. Jurists nominated by Republicans authored the decisions in Roe v. Wade, Kelo v. New London, National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius, and so many lesser-known cases whose decisions usurped the rights of states and individuals.

John Stuart Mill didn’t call conservatives “the stupid party” for nothing. But even slow people figure it out, albeit, as their name suggests, more slowly, and conservatives blocked George W. Bush’s suspected stealth pick Harriet Miers and stood firmly in blocking a vote on Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. [snip]

The payoff for McConnell’s gambit on Garland appears especially generous given the widespread declarations that replacing Antonin Scalia with a consistent liberal vote represented a historic sea change. “The Supreme Court’s Conservative Run Is Over” (Politico), “The Conservative Era of the Supreme Court Is Over” (Los Angeles Times), and “After 45 Years of Conservative Rulings, Here’s What a Liberal Supreme Court Would Do” (Washington Post) read a few of the headlines. What a difference a year makes!

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch via the destruction of the filibuster is a major immediate and long term victory for President Trump. “Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court.” But because of obstruction, their nominees were not ideologically committed and soon moved to the left. From now on that won’t happen. And if President Trump appoints 5 young Justices to the high court, the likelihood that Obama Dimocrats will appoint even a single Supreme Court Justice in the next 25 years is de minimus. Thank Barack Obama and the Mistake in ’08.

On April 17, the Supreme Court returns to work and the influence of Justice Gorsuch will be felt on the calendar of the court. And this schedule does not include, yet, President Trump’s “nexus issue” -immigration – on which Justice Gorsuch will have a profound effect.

This Holy Week, with Passover holidays under threat and the slaughter in Egypt of Christians on Palm Sunday and throughout the middle east in our minds, should remind us all that President Trump is on the job and as bad as things are the Republic is in good hands. As busy making America Great Again as he is, President Trump has proven he can play a winning game of chess on multiple boards.

Chess GrandMaster Trump? Even the Trump hating Washington Post is forced to agree with our analysis:

Could it be? Is President Trump on a roll?

I don’t want to jinx anything, but President Trump may be experiencing the best sequence of events since he became president. Just this week, he received bipartisan support for his military strike in Syria, secured Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court, had impressive meetings with both King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi of Egypt, caught a break with the Susan Rice scandal, and it appears he has walked away from a successful encounter with Chinese President Xi Jinping — all without knocking it off the rails with a wayward tweet. And it’s not just me saying that, no less than Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass wrote that this was “arguably [the] best of Donald Trump’s still young presidency, from [a] successful strike in Syria to confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.” [snip]

McConnell was correct in saying, “Certainly, this is an important day in the history of the Senate and in the Supreme Court.” And if Gorsuch’s confirmation is the only legacy Trump walks away from office with, it will be a great one.

In politics, just like in golf, luck counts. The fact that Trump launched an attack against Syria while his Chinese counterpart was present and able to witness the aftermath in the media was a powerful stroke of good luck for the White House. In case Xi needed any reminding of just how serious Trump may be about taking action in North Korea, the Syria attack couldn’t have been a better example or come at a better time. By all accounts, expectations for their meeting were low. But reports indicate that Trump and Xi had substantive, mostly positive conversations, perhaps leaving the Chinese president with a lot to think about. [snip]

But Trump’s luck didn’t end there. He caught another break with the Rice scandal being revealed when it was. The story has legs, and it’s become a counterweight to the media’s appetite for a Trump-Russia connection. The unmasking fiasco is distracting from the circus show that is the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation, but it won’t peak until Rice testifies under oath. And at that point, who knows which direction the investigation will take? For now, the intensity of the media’s search for a silver bullet in the faux Trump-Russia connection has subsided.

Um, it wasn’t “luck”. President Trump knows who did what to whom on the Rice story. What is happening now is a theatrical lifting of the curtain and a spot light hitting the culprits. President Trump made his own “luck” on Susan Rice.

President Trump also prepared for “luck” on the meeting with President Xi by hiring some tough hombres who have studied China trade policies for a long time. President Trump also sent top emissaries such as Secretary of State Tillerson to South Korea in previous weeks to pave the way for action on North Korea. As President Xi had his entrée served, President Trump knew what was about to happen in Syria. President Trump knew that the main course at dinner was a lesson to President Xi on what to do about North Korea.

North Korea itself was on the menu.

Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Obama Dimocrats, are about to get a fork stuck in them too.

The Miracle Called President Trump And The Salvation Of Our Republic

Update: Thursday, April 6, 2017 via President Trump can be summarized “during the day he nuked the Senate, at night he bombed Syria“. Yet some dolts don’t see the brilliance and miracle of President Trump.

Let’s quickly answer the question the dolts (Conservative Treehouse as usual does not understand complicated matters and after the Syria attack many commenters began to attack President Trump) don’t get. The dolts stupidly declared “There is ZERO motive for President Bashir Assad to weaponize chemical weapons against his people.” Um, idiots the motive for Assad, and Putin for that matter is the same motive all tin pot dictators always have: They are testing the new American president.

With every new administration come tests from foreign enemies of the United States. Why did Syria’s Assad burn his own people with chemical weapons? Because Assad and the Russians and IRAN wanted to slap President Donald J. Trump in the same way every lowlife in the world enjoyed slapping Barack Obama. Back in April 4, 2009 we wrote about the time Barack Obama was tested by America’s enemies. The dolts at the Treehouse should read our smart analysis to understand how foreign enemies test new presidents and see what smart analysis looks like: World Leaders And North Korea To Barack Obama: “Sucker”. That’s right you dolts, in April 2009 the new Obama administration was tested by North Korea. In April 2017, it is President Donald J. Trump who is tested.

How well did President Trump do on his first major test? It’s a miracle. Check out our comments section to get more details as they come in but first reactions from Big Pink were right on target:

For the record we are not in favor of military involvement in Syria. But this chemical attack was a direct challenge to President Trump to test him and see if he was as weak as Obama.

President Trump has turned lemons into lemonade. President Trump with this attack, which took place during President Xi and Trump at dinner, sends a message to China, North Korea and every adversary:I am not weak Obama. My name is Trump. Donald J. Trump!

Look at what President Trump managed to do with his first international crisis:

(1) He had a peaceful dinner with President Xi of China after he secretly ordered the calibrated attack on Syria. Before President Trump made the public announcement of the attack he politely informed President Xi. The unstated message to President Xi: “I am not Barack Hussein Obama. Tell that to the North Korean freaks you’ve been helping. If you don’t want a massive immigration crisis on your southern border get these North Korean freaks back in the circus and off the streets or I will do the job for you.” China and North Korea get the message and American allies in the region such as Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, respect the new President of the United States.

(2) Russia’s Vladimir Putin just got schlonged by testicular fortitude Trump. There goes the notion that Trump is Putin’s plant. Iran got schlonged too. You’re not dealing with Barack Hussein Obama – You’re dealing with President Donald J. Trump. Freaks. As to American allies like Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the rest, they too have respect for the new President of the United States and know that unlike Barack Hussein Obama, President Donald J. Trump is the one that does the schlonging and the slapping. The Egyptian President and the Jordanian King both of whom visited President Trump this past week must have especially wide smiles – but not as wide as the grin on Prime Minister Netanyahu.

(3) American allies world-wide, in North and South America, in the European Union, in Asia, Great Britain, everywhere know there is an American President in charge once again that they can rely on. America’s enemies world-wide know there is an American President in charge once again that they must fear and negotiate with out of respect.

(4) President Trump dealt with America’s enemies foreign and domestic. Remember, the toilet known as the U.S. Congress goes on vacation, they call it “recess”, on Friday. What will these useless goofballs do? They can no longer claim that Trump is Putin’s plant. Will they stay on the job to deal with the ramifications of President Trump’s attack on Syria? Or will these useless pieces of baggage go home and leave foreign policy to President Trump? Those that want to stay to demand President Trump do their bidding will have to confront those that want to go on vacation.

If the Congress persists and insists on vacation as their priority, President Trump can make recess appointments. If the Congress goes on vacation President Trump will continue to have a free hand on foreign policy. If the Congress decides to shock us all and stay in Washington to work, President Trump can demand they also work on ObamaCare repeal, the budget that is due and the debt ceiling. President Trump wins and wins.

As we enter the season of miracles, more miracles – via the miraculous President Donald J. Trump.

————————————————–

This week the right, left, and center, can see the amazing miracle called President Trump. It’s not just the obvious things like Gorsuch or the Jerusalem shocker. On election night and the day following the election we declared that the immense vastness of the Trump victory was immeasurable. This week we continue to try to measure the immeasurable.

Consider the Susan Rice scandal. Take a step back from the daily/hourly to-and-fro developments in that scandal which is itself but a part of the Russia nonsense from Obama Dimocrats. Can you see how miraculous this Susan Rice scandal makes the Trump election victory? Can you?

Remember all the many indisputable reasons from Big Media and the political establishment as to why Trump could never win? Remember all the many times it was declared by Big Media and the GOP and Dimocrat political establishments, along with all the economic and educational institutions of power that “it’s over for Trump”? Now add to all that what we have learned from the Susan Rice scandal. The Trump election victory becomes even more incredible, yea “miraculous” than any have previously understood.

TabletMag lays it all out. The TabletMag article was summarized in our comments section, but we recommend a full read to understand the gargantuan beast that opposed Donald J. Trump’s election, inauguration, and eventual presidency:

“At some point, the administration weaponized the NSA’s legitimate monitoring of communications of foreign officials to stay one step ahead of domestic political opponents,” says a pro-Israel political operative who was deeply involved in the day-to-day fight over the Iran Deal. “The NSA’s collections of foreigners became a means of gathering real-time intelligence on Americans engaged in perfectly legitimate political activism—activism, due to the nature of the issue, that naturally involved conversations with foreigners. We began to notice the White House was responding immediately, sometimes within 24 hours, to specific conversations we were having. At first, we thought it was a coincidence being amplified by our own paranoia. After a while, it simply became our working assumption that we were being spied on.”

This is what systematic abuse of foreign-intelligence collection for domestic political purposes looks like: Intelligence collected on Americans, lawmakers, and figures in the pro-Israel community was fed back to the Obama White House as part of its political operations. The administration got the drop on its opponents by using classified information, which it then used to draw up its own game plan to block and freeze those on the other side. And—with the help of certain journalists whose stories (and thus careers) depend on high-level access—terrorize them.

Barack Obama weaponized the intelligence gathering machine on behalf of his Iran terrorist pals. Then Barack Obama used the weaponized intelligence apparatus to target and destroy Donald J. Trump. It’s a miracle that Donald Trump survived and thrived to become President Donald J. Trump.

Fox News in 2015 reported on the Obama corruption of the intelligence apparatus in this country to benefit his Iran terrorist pals:

The sweeping up of conversations between Israeli officials and U.S. lawmakers began in earnest earlier this year, ahead of a March visit to Capitol Hill by Netanyahu to speak out against the developing Iran nuclear deal, and continued through this past September, when the deadline for Congress to block the deal passed.

The Wall Street Journal also reported on the Obama corruption of intelligence gathering for his Watergating of Iran terrorist opponents:

The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

The Obama corruption of the government intelligence agencies, whose mission is to protect the Republic from foreign enemies, turned those intelligence agencies into a threat on the Republic. Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence apparatus to attack Israel and defend Iran terrorists. Then Barack Obama turned that vast apparatus against Donald J. Trump.

It is a miracle. Nothing less than a miracle. Donald J. Trump overcame all the insurmountable odds that are somewhat “normal” in a political campaign. Donald J. Trump also overcame all the corrupt insurmountable corruptions of a politicized and weaponized intelligence gathering infrastructure to become President Donald J. Trump. It is nothing less than a miracle.

As the indefatigable Catherine Herridge reports the spying on American citizens associated with Trump was total:

Reports in unmasking controversy were detailed, had info about ‘everyday lives’

The intelligence reports at the center of the Susan Rice unmasking controversy were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file, according to a Republican congressman familiar with the documents.

This is information about their everyday lives,” Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence committee said. “Sort of like in a divorce case where lawyers are hired, investigators are hired just to find out what the other person is doing from morning until night and then you try to piece it together later on.” [snip]

Nunes has consistently stated that the files caused him deep concern because the unmasking went beyond the former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and the information was not related to Moscow.

Herridge details how only 20 persons are authorized to approve “unmasking” requests so eventually we will see who it was that helped Susan Rice in her corruptions. Herridge also details how unusual what Susan Rice did is by showing how very rare it is. Herridge makes it clear that the corruption of the intelligence agency started before the presidential election in 2016. Herridge quotes Trey Gowdy of the intelligence committee as saying “It would be nice to know the universe of people who have the power to unmask a U.S. citizen’s name, because that might provide something of a roadmap to investigate who might’ve actually disseminated a masked U.S. citizen’s name.

There is an “extensive government paper trail, that can be audited within the NSA, that shows who requested the unmasking, on what basis, and whether it was granted. This raises more questions about Rice, her motivation and whether it was authorized higher up, offering cover.”

Chicken littles and their ilk, not fit for foxholes in battle, will bemoan and whine about Chairman Devin Nunes recusal today from the Intelligence Committee investigation into Russia and the election. These Chicken Little types always whine that the sky is falling. But Trey Gowdy and his allies are still on the Intelligence Committee. Chairman Nunes now does not have to reveal anything to the Schiff-heads on the Committee. And the fact that Obama Dimocrats took out Chairman Nunes by filing complaints about his handling of classified information with the Ethics Committee will continue the inquiry into the corruptions by Obama and Obama thugs of classified information.

Chicken Little and her ilk of losers will not understand that it does not matter if there is a fight, what matters is that there is a fighter. Fighters win fights whether the fight is sought or comes unbidden. What matters is that President Trump is a fighter:

The Trump administration has escalated its feud with the Obama administration, creating a virtually unprecedented situation in which the current and former U.S. executive branches are openly fighting.

President Trump on Wednesday said Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice might have committed a crime by requesting the identities of Trump associates who were incidentally swept up in surveillance, though he cited no evidence to back up his claim.

I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Trump told The New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.

Gowdy at the Intelligence Committee. Big Pink on the job. President Trump in a fight for the Republic.

This is a fight for the Republic. Ann Althouse makes a smart observation:

I hope Susan Rice was keeping tabs on Trump’s Russia ties.
By Michelle Goldberg at Slate.

I love the way the messaging turns on a dime.

One minute it’s ridiculous to think that the Obama administration was doing surveillance on the Trump campaign. The next minute the Obama administration was doing the right thing if it did surveillance on the Trump campaign.

The Obama Dimocrat messaging has changed. That clues you in on the true impact of the Susan Rice revelations. Before, the Obama Dimocrat claim was that spying on Trump was crazy talk from a deranged President Trump. Now, the Obama Dimocrat claim is that spying on Trump was the necessary and smart thing to do. Winner? President Donald J. Trump the Miraculous savior of the Republic.

Want more miracles? A new Gallup poll, always an unfriendly poll for Trump, makes clear that despite all the attacks on President Trump from Big Media, President Trump has won the battle against Big Media:

Six in 10 in US See Partisan Bias in News Media

62% say news media favors one political party over the other
More believe media favors Democrats than Republicans
Clear majority of Americans say media is “often inaccurate”

In a contentious political landscape, Americans increasingly believe the news media generally favors one political party over the other. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the media has a favorite, up from about 50% in past years. Just 27% now say the media favors neither major party. [snip]

Gallup asked those who perceive political bias in the news media to say which party the news media favors. Almost two-thirds (64%) of those who believe the media favors a political party say it is the Democratic Party. Only about a third as many (22%) believe the media favors Republicans.

Game Over! Miraculous President Donald J. Trump has won the battle against Big Media although Big Media won’t report the news.

Think we exaggerate about the miraculous power of President Donald J. Trump? Remember all that talk about President Donald J. Trump moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and how that would bring on World War III? Remember how recently despite Obama Dimocrat opposition the Trump American ambassador to Israel – who advocates for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem – David Friedman was confirmed which would surely bring on World War III?

Well, David Friedman is not yet the American ambassador to Israel but there is a President Donald J. Trump miracle in Israel now that Iran pal Obama is hiding out in Polynesia. Yeah, Russia is catching up to President Trump:

Russia recognizes west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated in a surprise announcement on Thursday, obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post. [snip]

No other country in the world recognizes any part of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry reads, “We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

This is a sharp shift in Russian policy, which until now has formally held that Jerusalem should eventually be under a permanent international regime. The statement appears in English on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Russian web site.

While officials in Jerusalem interpreted this to mean that recognition of west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will only come once east Jerusalem becomes the capital of a Palestinian state, The Jerusalem Post has learned that Moscow intends this recognition to go into effect immediately.

Russia moved to President Trump’s daring position on Israel, before David Friedman could bring on “World War III” doing what Russia has done. Because of Passover holidays and the “weeklong shutdown” in Israel which starts on April 10, Trump’s approved ambassador to Israel won’t be on the job in Israel. Because of protocol decisions by the Israeli government it is likely that David Friedman will be welcomed as the American ambassador to Israel in June. But the miracle, the embassy move reason Obama Dimocrats offered to not confirm David Friedman, has already happened. Jerusalem is now recognized as the capital of Israel by Russia and the United States will soon also confirm the position of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. World War III averted. A President Donald J. Trump miracle.

Why did Russia make this startling declaration? Perhaps this was all a well-timed dance by President Trump to allow Russia to take the credit for a President Trump policy. It could be. But we suspect that it is a President Trump miracle. The miracle in this case is that President Trump’s clear-eyed assessment of the political situation in the world is now accepted by Russia.

Why would Russia wake up? Maybe it is this very underreported story by American Big Media:

At least 14 people were murdered and 50 injured in the blast and horrifying pictures show bodies, blood and wreckage strewn across the carriage of the train blown up between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations in Russia’s second city.

Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the suspected attacked who also planted a second device hidden in a fire extinguisher that failed to explode. [snip]

Police believe he has close links to radical Islamists.

Jalilov’s home country of Kyrgyzstan, which borders Kazakhstan and China in central Asia, is predominately Muslim and has seen up to 500 citizens travel to Syria to join ISIS. Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were also born there.

Candidate for president Donald J. Trump frequently declared that he thought Russia could be a partner against Muslim terrorists. Russia this week got a taste of Muslim terror from the same source Boston sampled. Quislings in the West, particularly in Germany, don’t want to fight Muslim terrorists:

A decision by the city of Berlin not to illuminate its most famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate, in the colors of the Russian flag to show solidarity with St Petersburg after an attack has provoked anger, with critics calling it a scandal.

In the past after attacks in other countries, the city has beamed the colors of flags of France, Turkey, Britain and the Netherlands onto the Brandenburg Gate, which divided East and West Berlin in the Cold War. [snip]

While lights at the Eiffel Tower in Paris will be switched off at midnight on Tuesday as a mark of respect for the victims of the St Petersburg attack, other European landmarks have been lit in their usual way.

The head of German broadcaster Deutsche Welle’s Russian service Ingo Mannteufel said the decision belittled victims of the St Petersburg attack at a time when the German government says it values the Russian people even if it disagrees with the Kremlin.

(The West) has a moral and political duty to show solidarity with the victims of terrorism in Russia. That the Brandenburg Gate was not illuminated in the Russian colors was therefore wrong, yes, it is even a scandal,” he wrote.

There are those in the West that want war with Russia. These same forces do everything to appease Muslim terrorists. Every attempt is made to goad President Trump to turn his eyes from Muslim terrorism and onto Russia. Thus far it has not worked.

The Susan Rice scandal and all the Obama Dimocrat perversions of the intelligence apparatus in this country have been geared towards leading President Trump into conflict with Russia. But even in the most totalitarian leftist precincts, warnings are sounded about this soon to fail tactic:

Putin Derangement Syndrome Arrives

Whatever the truth about Trump and Russia, the speculation surrounding it has become a dangerous case of mass hysteria [snip]

For seemingly the 100th time, social media is exploding. This is it! The big reveal! [snip]

One way we recognize a mass hysteria movement is that everyone who doesn’t believe is accused of being in on the plot. This has been going on virtually unrestrained in both political and media circles in recent weeks.

The aforementioned Mensch, a noted loon who thinks Putin murdered Andrew Breitbart but has somehow been put front and center by The Times and HBO’s Real Time, has denounced an extraordinary list of Kremlin plants.

She’s tabbed everyone from Jeff Sessions (“a Russian partisan”) to Rudy Giuliani and former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom (“agents of influence”) to Glenn Greenwald (“Russian shill”) to ProPublica and Democracy Now! (also “Russian shills”), to the 15-year-old girl with whom Anthony Weiner sexted (really, she says, a Russian hacker group called “Crackas With Attitudes”) to an unnamed number of FBI agents in the New York field office (“moles”). And that’s just for starters.

Others are doing the same. Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, upon seeing the strange behavior of Republican Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes, asked “what kind of dossier” the Kremlin has on Nunes. [snip]

Even Bernie Sanders has himself been accused of being a Putin plant by Mensch. But even he’s gotten on board of late, asking, “What do the Russians have on Mr. Trump?”

So even people who themselves have been accused of being Russian plants are now accusing people of being Russian plants. As the Russians would say, it’s enough to make your bashka hurt.

The entire article from leftist Matt Taibbi is worth reading to fully understand the crackpot left. At times it is comic as when it describes Senator Mark Warner’s antics which merit a trip to Bellevue insane asylum. But mostly it is a map of leftist lunacy. Even leftist loon Noam Chomsky thinks the entire Russia crackpottery is “a joke”.

Mostly though the Taibbi article is a summary of the miracle that is President Donald J. Trump. How did Donald J. Trump, short of a miracle possibly win the presidential election???

Since 2012 we often declared that all you needed to know was that 2016 would be a “change” election. We predicted a Trump victory on the Friday before the election and put forth our election map – which left open as “too close to call” the pivotal states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. We knew Trump would win and endorsed him because Trump was the change candidate. We were sure the candidate of change would win. But really!!!! With all the Susan Rice/Barack Obama corruptions of the election process how in hell did Donald J. Trump manage to win??? The odds against this victory become more vast, more immeasurable, the more this scandal develops.

It was a miracle.

President Trump today, against the weak Republican leadership, against the always ready to cave Republican senate, effectively managed to get Neil Gorsuch confirmed. The official vote will be tomorrow but it is a miracle that this has happened. We thought it would happen, but still, it is a miracle.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds Trump became President. Now we discover that Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence agencies to attack Trump.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds from Obama Dimocrats he is protecting America’s allies like Israel and attacking America’s enemies.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against Obama Dimocrat attempts to subvert the Constitution and GOP weaklings afraid of their own shadows, Donald J. Trump will be able to appoint his nominees to the Supreme Court.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. The great miracle is that President Donald J. Trump is the salvation of the Republic.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrats will not subvert the Constitution further in their attempt to only allow a Supreme Court justice of their own choosing from confirmation. The democratic election will have consequences. President Donald J. Trump will be able to follow the Constitution and appoint Supreme Court Justices.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrat attempts to bring about war with Russia and protect Muslim terrorist nations will not succeed.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Here the people rule. Government Of, By, and For the people, shall not perish from the Earth. It is not the intelligence agencies that will determine our elections. Here the people rule.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle and the salvation of our Republic.

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!: Gorsuch Filibuster Reality

The left is disgusting, but the right ain’t too bright. On March 2, we wrote Conservative Treehouse doesn’t make sense:

Some on the right foolishly and mistakenly believe the madness will break during the Supreme Court confirmation fight for soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. Some on the right, not understanding Obama Dimocrats, foolishly don’t understand the political battle as they concoct wild theories about why the filibuster won’t be deployed against soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. These are dangerous delusions. The left is not even near full madness.

Conservative Treehouse dreamed up some silly scenario, so bizarre that you can read and reread it and it still can’t be understood, not even by the initial commentors, about why Neil Gorsuch was a shoe-in and no filibuster would be deployed by Chuck Schumer. The “rationale” for such a bizarre conclusion was too silly to even explain in any reality-based way. The Conservative Treehouse “analysis”: “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will not filibuster the nomination. Relax, it’s 100%. 100%. Done.

That Treehouse analysis is nutty as a squirrel’s sac. It did not get any better after Chuck Schumer confirmed that indeed, as we predicted, there will be a filibuster. After delusional theory #1 exploded, the Treehouse churned up some more nutty butter to spread which made as little sense as their first flub. It was something about Russians and… well… this latest theory was again too silly to give serious consideration to.

Let’s explain political reality, as seen by Obama Dimocrats, to Conservative Treehouse so they can begin to add some bit of obvious to the discussion.

First, Conservative Treehouse and the not-too-bright right, think that it is the next Supreme Court confirmation battle or the one after that (when presumably a left wing Justice leaves the high court) that matters and that Gorsuch’s seat on the high court is somewhat of an afterthought. This is supremely stupid.

In all caps: GORSUCH IS THE BATTLE THAT MUST BE WON! It is not the next confirmation, nor the one after that that matters. Chuck Schumer understands that Neil Gorsuch must be defeated because Gorsuch’s confirmation will be a devastating blow to the left from which the left will not recover for generations. Neil Gorsuch returns the court to a conservative majority. That majority might not be the perfect conservative majority of the ideologically right wing – but Neil Gorsuch will return a 5-4 majority to the Supreme Court. THAT IS THE BATTLE. THAT IS EVERYTHING.

After the GOP ObamaCare repeal and replace defeat, Chuck Schumer knows that one more big defeat for President Trump and the Republicans will mean the GOP is neutered and the 2018 elections become a real contest with likely Obama Dimocrat victories unimaginable until now. The consequences of a Neil Gorsuch defeat means that President Trump would have to name a new nominee to the Supreme Court who would have to be a centrist (and still not be confirmed) and more time would be burned up and less and less could be accomplished by President Trump.

Chuck Schumer is doing what any brilliant General knows to do when your forces are weak and outmatched by the opposition: stall for time. In time, the stronger forces grow weaker and the weaker forces grow stronger.

Now, some on the not-too-bright-right will respond that “no, the big battle will be the one to replace the dead Justice Ginsberg.” Um, stupid. If Justice Ginsberg dies (or resigns) while Trump is president, President Trump does not really have to do anything. The Supreme Court would go from a 5-4 conservative majority to a 5-3 conservative majority on the court via subtraction. A one vote majority would become a two vote majority automatically. Of course, President Trump would make a nomination and then the majority would become a 6-3 majority. But 5-3 or 6-3 the left can add single digits. The Obama Dimocrats like Chuck Schumer understand all this. The left knows Neil Gorsuch is THE battle even if the right is not too bright. Conservative Treehouse and the not-too-bright-right hallucinated themselves into a dream that Gorsuch is not the most important battle for the left.

In addition, the left will frequently circumvent the political process by going to the courts to gain in the judicial arena what they lost in the political arena. That’s why Barack Obama and Harry Reid destroyed the judicial filibuster to get Obama nominees to the district and appellate courts confirmed.

For the left, Gorsuch is everything. For the left all the gains at the district and appellate level will be eliminated if the high court regains a conservative majority. The left is correct, the right is wrong, in this analysis.

Chuck Schumer also understands that 2018 will be a very difficult election for Obama Dimocrats because so many Dimocrats are running and many of those will fight for reelection in red states that Donald J. Trump won with wide margins; while few Republicans are up for reelection at all and most of those are in red states. Chuck Schumer also understands that the dimwits on the left, unlike the right, rarely vote in off year elections.

Chuck Schumer and the left further understand that their hope in 2018 and 2020 is to run a “base” election. To run a “base” election the base has to be happy. The DailyKooks left base will not be happy if Schumer does not filibuster Gorsuch.

Once again, for the left the Gorsuch confirmation battle is the battle of all battles. They know there is no “next”.

The left also understands the weakness on the right. There are several GOP senators that are in many ways closer to the left than they are to the right. Senators Murkowski, Collins, Graham, and McCain, are always ready to join a “gang” of eight or four to block victory and grasp defeat. For these four senators what matters is the traditions of the senate and collegiality but most of all flattery from Big Media. They also don’t want to see the filibuster destroyed because that would make the senate too much like the low rent House.

Some senators also know that “what goes around comes around”. Get rid of the minority friendly judicial filibuster now, and when the majority becomes the minority they will have lost a last resort weapon.

Because the GOP only has 52 votes out of 100 in the senate Senators Murkowski, Collins, Graham, and McCain can sorta filibuster the death of the filibuster. Yes, these four can kill the kill-the-filibuster crew. That the confirmation filibuster will be killed by the Obama Dimocrats the moment they seize power and it becomes advantageous to do so does not mean much to these four.

Or… maybe not? There is some good and unexpected news on this judicial confirmation filibuster fight:

Eliminating the filibuster would break Senate precedent and make it impossible for Democrats to hold the nominee to a 60-vote threshold, allowing Republicans to approve Gorsuch with a simple majority.

Graham told conservative radio show host Mike Gallagher that he would vote for the nuclear option if necessary.

Whatever it takes to get him on the court, I will do,” Graham said, after being asked about using the nuclear option.

If my Democratic colleagues choose to filibuster this guy, then they will be telling me that they don’t accept the election results — 306 electoral votes — that they’re trying to delegitimize President Trump,” Graham continued. “And that’s not right, and we would have to change the rules to have the Supreme Court like everybody else.” [snip]

I hope that we can get 60 votes and not change 200-plus years of history, but I will do whatever’s necessary, but I’ve been a pretty balanced guy and enough is enough,” Graham said.

If Graham won’t crumble, will McCain? Good news there too:

In a closely divided Senate (Republicans hold a 52-48 majority), it would only take three Republicans to let Schumer have his way, but comments from several Senate Republicans suggest they’re not going to give in to Democratic demands.

Arizona senator John McCain hinted Thursday afternoon that he’s ready to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch with a simple majority if Senate Democrats take the unprecedented step of filibustering a Supreme Court nominee. Asked what Republicans should do if 41 or more Democrats try to block Gorsuch, McCain told THE WEEKLY STANDARD: “I think we’ll address it when it happens. None of us want to do it, but we’re going to confirm Gorsuch.” [snip]

Arizona’s Jeff Flake told TWS: “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, but I think we’ll get him confirmed.”

“There’s no reason for anybody to filibuster,” said Lisa Murkowski, a moderate from Alaska. “Gorsuch is a good guy.”

You can’t take anything for granted with that crew but at least for now they are making the right noises. Not that Chuck Schumer believes them. Chuck Schumer is playing for time and he knows how to play these Big Media compliant senators. Chuck Schumer thinks he will get himself a traitor or two and win the big battle:

Schumer confident Democrats have votes to block Gorsuch
The Senate minority leader is prepared to force Mitch McConnell to try to invoke the ‘nuclear option.’

Chuck Schumer is prepared to push the Senate into a nuclear confrontation over the Supreme Court. [snip]

Dismissing the notion of a deal to confirm Gorsuch floated by some members of his caucus this week, Schumer all but declared that Donald Trump’s nominee will not receive the requisite eight Democratic votes — and that it will be up to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as to whether to try to blow up the filibuster to get Gorsuch through. [snip]

If Schumer stops Gorsuch during a filibuster vote in early April — and the New Yorker was brimming with confidence that he will — it will almost certainly force McConnell’s hand on the so-called nuclear option. Schumer is betting McConnell does not have the votes to do away with the 60-vote requirement for Supreme Court nominees.

“I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion that Mitch McConnell changes the rules,” Schumer said. “There are people in his caucus who really don’t want to change the rules, OK?

This is not about “payback” for Merrick Garland. The wilted Garland confirmation that never was excuse is a way for Obama Dimocrats and Big Media to justify the filibuster to the public. The right wing delusionalists do not get it but the leftists understand that Gorsuch is the big battle:

Liberal activists warn party’s lawmakers: Primaries are coming [snip]

Frustrated by the party’s performance on Capitol Hill and emboldened by the mass protests against President Donald Trump, a coalition of progressive groups say they are open to supporting primary challengers next year against Democratic members of the House and Senate – even if many inside the party believe that intra-party races might ultimately only help the Republican Party gain more power. [snip]

“Every single Democratic incumbent considering aiding and abetting the Trump administration needs to consider their jobs at high risk,” said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America, a grassroots progressive advocacy group based in Vermont. [snip]

The base is more than restless – it’s furious,” said Ben Wikler, Washington director for MoveOn.org, a longtime and well-known liberal advocacy group. “It’s up to each and every elected Democrat: If they want to be part of the resistance, they’ll have an army by their side.

“And if they don’t, they’ll have to face the biggest grassroots movement that I’ve seen in my life,” he added.

The threats are representative of a rift within the Democratic Party over its midterm election strategy, between its more moderate establishment and an emboldened liberal faction. Many members of the party establishment think its lawmakers, especially those who represent states of districts won by Trump last year, must win over Republican voters by finding times to cooperate with the president.

Adding to the tension is that 10 Senate Democrats are running for re-election next year in states Trump won during last year’s presidential campaign. Five of the states were also won by former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012. [snip]

Anything short of an all-out effort from Democrats to stop the judge, including forcing Senate Republicans to lower the existing 60-vote threshold for confirmation of Supreme Court justices, will incite the base, they say.

The not-too-bright right must understand the mentality of the left and not succumb to nuts-falling-from-the-tree theories. For the left, Gorsuch is THE battle. And the left is correct. Gorsuch is THE battle! Gorsuch means 5-4 for generations (or 6-3, or 7-2). For Obama Dimocrats up for reelection in 2018 the crossfire of left and right attacks will be most bloody. Everyway you look at it they lose.

So why is this a “Glory, Glory, Hallelujah” moment? For four reasons.

Reason #1: A Gorsuch confirmation victory on April 3 (when the Judiciary Committee votes) and on April 8 (or before, when the entire U.S. Senate votes) will wipe away the defeat on the ObamaCare battle for the GOP. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #2: A Gorsuch confirmation victory means more victories as the 5-4 majority will be restored. On President Trump’s immigration policies these will be especially important victories as they will on those ObamaCare cases which will finish off ObamaCare, all thus far stifled by the current 4-4 split on the high court. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #3: A Gorsuch confirmation victory means that as we have long suggested and advocated, if you are going to get rid of the judicial confirmation filibuster do it as early as possible so that President Trump can effect his policies more easily for eight years. As we wrote previously, Barack Obama dumped the filibuster for the lower court confirmations very late in his term instead of early on when the boob could have done even more damage than he did. The GOP with President Trump should not make the same stupid mistake. If it is to be done, do it quickly and early – a philosophy we share with the Bard. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #4: This confirmation will make later confirmations faster, easier. There will be other confirmation battles if the Gorsuch battle goes well and Gorsuch gets on the high court before the late April arguments are heard and voted on. The end of the judicial filibuster means that President Trump will be free to appoint whom he wants without fear of the Obama Dimocrats.

Contrary to what the TreeHouse theorizes about, a Gorsuch victory will make it more likely that the high court majority will be strengthened. That nonsense about Justice Kennedy assumes so much it is laughable. The facts are that once Neil Gorsuch is Justice Gorsuch – due to the end of the filibuster, some of the older conservative Justices will feel free to resign and be replaced with younger versions of themselves that will continue the Trump Legacy for generations.

Forty-nine year old Gorsuch replacing Scalia will be followed by forty-something year old replacements for Thomas and Kennedy (a more consistently conservative version too). On the left our bet is that faced with a younger and stronger 5-4 majority and the futility of resistance, Justice Breyer will call it quits to be followed by Justice Ginsberg.

The left could try to thwart all this via cooperation with President Trump. Schumer could try to work out deals with President Trump and cajole and sweet talk the President into going a bit more center on nominations and policy.

But Schumer and the left won’t cooperate. They will filibuster. They will fight. And President Trump will fight back. That’s why we say, Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Great News: Alcoholics And Drug Addicts Against @RealDonaldTrump!!! Part I

Update: It’s over for Trump! 🙂 🙂 🙂 He’s now President-Elect Donald J. Trump. The Electoral College has voted and opposition to Donald J. Trump has proven to be an illusion/delusion/hallucination. Blame it on Hoaxium!

In 2008 Barack Obama supporters snorted Hopium and believed in their tin plated squirrel king who has led the Dim Party to historic losses without the aid of Putin or other bogeymen fictions. Post-election 2016 the losers snort Hoaxium, a powerful Hopium derivative and hallucinogenic. Such is the power of 2016 Hoaxium that millions of dollars were given by Hillary Clinton supporters to Dr. Jill Stein who ceaselessly attacked Hillary Clinton during the election. The Hoaxium led to millions of dollars wasted in recounts instead of electoral efforts in the future. The Hoaxium led to deliriums that Republican activist electors would repudiate themselves and their life work to elect someone else. Hoaxium is a strong drug.

The results of these Hoaxium election tremens is that Donald J. Trump gained votes during the recounts and today, as in the recounts, Hillary Clinton lost more electoral votes – four in Washington State mostly given instead to RINO Republican Colin Powell – Hillary loses again to a black man. Trump? He’s not tired of winning and neither are his 304 electors and millions of supporters.

——————————————–

President-Elect Donald J. Trump does not drink alcohol nor indulge in mind altering drugs. Judging by their Eichenwaldian style meltdowns post election, Obama Dimcrats appear to only drink alcohol and ingest mind altering drugs. These mind bending behaviors by Obama Dimcrats are great news for soon to be President Donald J. Trump.

The Jill Stein recounts (which served only to relive election night victories by Trump), the Electoral College coup attempts by NeverTrump loons doomed to more disappointments, the “Russians did it” theories of election theft propounded by Hillary Clinton, Hillary2016, and Podesta/Pelosi, the “blame Bernie Sanders” theories, the “Big Media unfair to Hillary” theories, the “blame voter ID requirements”, the “Comey is to blame” theories, the “Hillary won millions more votes which means the election was hacked or otherwise stolen”, all these theories and excuses are indicators of severe drug/alcohol abuse akin to the 2007/2008 Hopium crisis.

Is there a theory or someone that has not been blamed yet for Hillary Clinton’s election loss? Who’s next on the blame train? Should we blame Marlon Brando (waddaya got?), or O.J. Simpson (who me?), or Charles Manson (I wasn’t there!), or Jon-Benet Ramsey’s parents (our daughter is not pimped out), Bugs Bunny (what’s up doc?) or those pesky grey aliens (bow down to your alien overlords)? On Monday when Donald J. Trump is voted President-Elect Donald J. Trump by the Electoral College the mental hospitals and drug wards will fill up, as they did on election night, with pajama boy leftists who were convinced by Big Media that Donald J. Trump had no chance to win.

This is all great news for soon to be President Donald J. Trump. Why? Well, let’s turn to Alcoholics Anonymous and other addiction programs for the tried and true methodology to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction, for the answer:

admitting that one cannot control one’s alcoholism, addiction or compulsion;
recognizing a higher power that can give strength;
examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);
making amends for these errors;
learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;
helping others who suffer from the same alcoholism, addictions or compulsions.

Here’s the key Obama Dimcrats and crushed Hillary Clinton voters looking for someone to blame: first, you must admit you have a problem. Without admitting you have a problem you cannot move forward. Without admitting you have a problem nothing will change and you will continue to be losers.

See why this is such great news for President Donald J. Trump? As long as Obama Dimcrats and Hillary Clinton voters refuse to admit they need to change, nothing will change for them. This means President Donald J. Trump will be alone on the fast lane of success as he speeds by his drugged/drunken political opponents on the far far far out out out left left left.

In one sense the Obama Dimcrat escape-from-reality strategy is necessary if they are to avoid catatonic madness. These delusions and escapes from reality can be considered necessary because Obama Dimcrats and the Obama Third Term fools at Hillary2016 know what’s coming. The Obama years will be erased the same way a mother scrapes the feces from a baby’s bottom. The Obama Dimcrats read Mark Meadows’ plan for the first 100 days and how Republicans will eliminate the Obama feces from law and in order to avoid catatonic madness they have escaped into a world of delusion.

Add the Mark Meadows plan to the President-Elect Donald J. Trump cabinet appointees, the coming Supreme Court nomination(s), the total destruction of hated ObamaCare, the destruction of the Obama Dimocrat Party at the national, state and local levels, the Republican Party control of Senate, House, and White House, the total control of the Federal bureaucracy and all the agencies and departments of the Federal government, control by soon to be President Trump of the Border Patrol, control by soon to be President Trump of the investigative powers of the Federal government and it’s army of prosecutors along with the ability of the Justice Department to eliminate court orders imposed by the Justice Department on states and localities over the years, the total control by President Trump of the armed forces of the United States – Navy, Army, Air Force, – and all the police agencies of all the departments of government, the total control by President Trump of boards which regulate labor unions and businesses, the total control by President Trump of toxic environmental agencies which have used their power well outside legal authority, the ability of President Trump to immediately throw out Obama legacy items such as the Iran deal and the Paris Accords on environment which were imposed by executive overreach which can be overcome by the new executive, the stunning victory of Donald J. Trump over Big Media, Academia, and other institutions of power which opposed his election and how President Trump will be able to use his communicative skills via Twitter, FaceBook, and rallies of tens of thousands of supporters once in office to further geld Big Media and the allies of the left, along with others in the immeasurable vastness of the Trump victory – and you can see how retreat into delusion is the only safety valve for Obama Dimocrats from Eichenwaldian hysterical madness.

This numbing future for the left is why so many indulge themselves in fantasy therapies with cuddly Teddy Bears about how they are not to blame for their own defeat but rather it is mean ol’ Vlad Putin, as Hillary Clinton says that caused the historic defeat of the left and the Obama Third Term. Vlad Putin and the Russians cannot single-handedly be apportion credit for the massive election defeat so all the other excuses come into play.

Into the fray comes Al From. Al From of the hated Democratic Leadership Council helped Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992 by demanding the Democratic Party abandon the crazy politics of the left. Now Al From remembers and has advice for the leftist losers of 2016:

Lessons From Our Last Comeback

Political memories tend to be short. As Democrats debate the causes and remedies for our recent losses, we sometimes forget that we’ve been here before. We would do well to remember the lessons of our last comeback as we plan our next one.

Between 1968 and 1988, Democrats lost five out of six presidential elections. It looked like the Republicans would have a permanent lock on the White House. We didn’t just lose the Electoral College, we lost 49 states—twice.

It had become painfully clear that we were trying to sell a product the American people did not want to buy. No amount of money, technology, or campaign strategy or tactics could reverse our losses. We needed new ideas. We needed to change our message.

President Bill Clinton and the New Democrats offered new ideas that fueled our party’s political comeback. That insurgent effort retooled the party’s message. [snip]

As Democrats plot our comeback, once again, there’s far too much talk about demographics, strategies and tactics and far too little focus on what we stand for. I believe our core problem is that too many Americans are not buying what we’re selling. It’s time to modernize our message once again. [snip]

First, honor core Democratic principles; don’t abandon them.

The New Democrat core principles—opportunity, responsibility, community—reconnected our party to its first principles and grandest traditions. [snip]

Second, grow the private economy. [snip]

Third, remember the forgotten middle class. [snip]

Fourth, reclaim the mantle of reform. [snip]

Fifth, close the national security gap. [snip]

Sixth, challenge the status quo with bold ideas. [snip]

Seventh, ask Americans to give something back to their country.

The problem for Al From is the left hates those prescriptions. The bigger problem is the left of 2016 has nothing left but the delusion that they really won and Trump really lost. The biggest problem, as in all addictions and flights from reality is that you have to admit you have a problem before you can be cured and restored to good health.

Al From’s prescriptions for a return to victory are really descriptions of how Donald J. Trump won – Make America Great Again is #7, Trump is #6, national security #5, reform #4, middle class #3, #2 is Trump’s jobs-jobs-jobs, and Trump is the one honoring what used to be “Democratic principles”. Al From is describing the Trump agenda not the lunatic party of Obama. Hillary Clinton embraced Barack Obama and turned herself into the Obama Third Term, abandoned the Clinton Coalition to Donald J. Trump, and thereby deservedly lost. That’s reality, not the delusion excuses so embraced by Hillary voters on the left.

That’s where things stand as the Electoral College prepares to meet and proclaim Donald J. Trump President-Elect. Obama Dimocrats find the Hopium of 2008 is not strong enough to overcome reality. So new, stronger drugs, CrackBarackaine are prescribed. Michelle Obama is mainlining CrackBarackaine and proving she is “hopeless”.



Michelle Obama fresh from being rescued from a frozen Canadian lake went on the bovine Oprah show to declare herself, as we all suspected, “hopeless”:

Michelle Obama fed her husband’s feud with Donald Trump on Friday as she gave a gloomy description of the hopeless climate his election win has created.

The First Lady used her final interview in the White House to tell Oprah Winfrey that a ‘grown up’ should be in charge of the country.

Looking forward to president-elect Trump’s looming inauguration, she said even though hope was lost, it was necessary to move on.

Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary,’ she said in her first direct response to the November 9 election result.

Mrs Obama’s remarks come within hours of her husband’s announcement Russian hackers interfered with the election to help his successor. [snip]

In her interview with Oprah, the First Lady said the president needs to be someone ‘who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil: “hey, it’s gonna be ok”‘.

She said she was assured her husband had achieved his goal of setting a hope-fueled agenda because of the contrasting mood brought by Trump’s victory.

‘Your husband’s administration, everything, the election, was all about hope. Do you think that this administration achieved that?’ asked Winfrey.

In a lengthy reply, Mrs Obama said calmly: ‘Yes. I do. Because we feel the difference now.

Now, we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept.

‘What else do you have if you don’t have hope?’

In a glowing assessment of her husband’s tenure, Mrs Obama likened him to the calming parent of the panicked toddler nation.

‘Our children respond to crisis the way they see us respond. You know, it’s like the toddler bumps his head on the table and they look up at you to figure out whether it hurts and if you’re like (gasp) “oh my god” they’re crying but if you’re like “you know what, babe it’s OK”…

‘And I feel that way about the nation, I feel that Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate.



This is not a nation of toddlers and pajama boys and girls. Hope is not policy. Hope is not achievement.

Barack Obama’s failures, which we predicted in 2007, are explained vividly by Michelle Obama in this bizarre Eichenwaldian interview. No, Moose, this is not a nation of toddlers in need of safety zones, play dough, cuddly toys and delusions. No, Moose, false hope and chump change are not a formula for success for anyone other than a flim-flam con man.

Michelle Obama and her Hopium addict squirrelly husband are hopeless. Obama Dimcrats are unable to move on as they take drugs, ingest alcohol, and invent ever more complex delusions to explain away the disaster we all saw back in 2007.

On Monday, December 19, Donald J. Trump will be elected President by the Electoral College in the real world, not the delusional drug dens of Obama Dimcrats.

Nasty Moose and other Obama Dimcrats are hopeless – but real Americans are happy and full of real hope for real change!!! January 20, 2017 cannot come fast enough.

The Vastness Of The Trump Revolution Is Immeasurable

Consider this article the latest in our long running series “Mistake In ’08” or proof that we have been so absolutely brilliant in our long running “Situation Comedy” series of analysis. Herein we discuss the 10 year plan that failed again, the 40 year plan that failed again, the cremation of the Democratic Party, the Clinton coalition renamed the Trump coalition, and assorted disasters inflicted by President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Revolution upon his enemies.

* * * * * *

Archimedes postulated that if he had a lever long enough and firm ground underneath he could move the world. In that spirit we note that if we had a measuring tape that could circumnavigate the political world it would fall short of measuring the immeasurable Trump triumph of 2016.

Those demonstrations and riots against the presidential election which resulted in President-elect Donald J. Trump? Excellent, most excellent. Those demonstrations are the death rattle of the Obamas choking in their own feces.

To try to measure the Obama catastrophe, the Mistake in ’08, we begin with the very premise of the Obama destruction of the Democratic Party in 2008. Recall that Obama and the Obamaroids rejected the FDR coalition and the updates to that coalition implemented by JFK and Bill Clinton. The new Obama coalition was “the coalition of the ascendant” which we declared to be nothing but a cult of personality.

There is no doubt now that we were right about “the coalition of the ascendant” being a “creative class” cult of personality for a tin plated wannabee “transformational” flim-flam man. The proof? The elections of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. In the election years 2008 and 2012 the Obama cult successfully elected their tin plated object of worship. But that cult, that “coalition of the ascendant” was not transferable and in 2009, 2010!!!, 2014!!!, and 2016 without Obama explicitly on the ballot, the cult of the ascendant failed.

Remember what that “coalition of the ascendant” was? We explained it and the disasters for the Democratic Party that would result back in 2008’s Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy. That new coalition for the Democratic Party was blacks, young white liberals, enough Latinos, and the gentry class in the suburbs protected by wealth and class from their foolish choices.

We explained it all in “The Shield Maiden Of Chappaqua”:

For years we explained (see, “Mistake In ’08” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII, and the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV) that to build and grow a political party you first gather a core constituency then slowly grow the party by the addition of like-minded individuals and groups which share those interests of the core constituency.

The modern Democratic Party built by Franklin Delano Roosevelt had as a core constituency the white working class. This working class provided the party of FDR with guideposts on policy and guided the party in everything it did. The working class core of the party was white because it reflected the same characteristics as the general population.

Over the years groups were added to the FDR coalition. Senior citizens joined in on the coalition attracted by promises such as “Social Security”. In the 1960s John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a Boston Brahmin added black Americans into the Democratic Party fold with some deft politicking (and his father’s vast wealth) which smudged away the racist past of the party. JFK grew the Democratic Party by addition not subtraction.

In 2008, Barack Obama and assorted kooks decided to purposefully destroy the Democratic Party of FDR. Barack Obama and these kooks willfully embraced the idea of the new “coalition of the ascendant”. This “coalition of the ascendant” and their interests – which conflicted with the interests of the FDR coalition – made it necessary to kick out core Democratic Party constituencies such as senior citizens and the white working class.

The Barack Obama coalition slogan was a variation of the race riot 1960s slogan “burn, baby, burn”.

By the time of our last installment of “Mistake In ’08” we fearlessly declared:

What happened in 2008 is not a question of historical interpretation. The “mistake in ’08” is the defining question for 2016.

Now the question[s] has been answered. The Mistake In ’08 is the greatest political miscalculation in American history that led to the destruction of the world’s oldest political party and the ascension of the new Trump Republican Party. That Hillary2016 did not read and absorb the lessons we wrote about, particularly in that last Mistake In ’08 article is why Hillary2016 failed and why Hillary Clinton deserved to lose.

In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we wrote:

The selection of Barack Obama is an historical mistake which will continue to unravel the Dimocratic Party for generations. Only now are honest Democrats beginning to assess the damage done. “Mistake In ’08” is the first installment in a multi-part series which will detail how big a mistake was self-inflicted by Democrats in 2008.

The consequences of that “Mistake In ’08” are many, as we now begin to describe.

* * * * * *

The 10 year plan. In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we discussed “the 10 year plan”:

What was that 10-year plan?

The six letter word is “census”. “The Census is the count of the US population conducted every ten years mandated by the Constitution. Redistricting is the process of drawing political borders to reflect changes in population.” Post-census redistricting was the Democratic 10 year plan which Obama has already effectively destroyed. 10 years of planning gone in a puff of smoke.

The 10 year plan for 2010, as we predicted in 2009, was destroyed by Barack Obama. In 2010 an entire generation of Democrats was beheaded and Republicans won a massive victory. This meant the Republicans would determine the redistricted lines for congressional districts after the 2010 census. The Republicans redistricted and ensured a Republican House of Representatives for the foreseeable future.

The next census will be in 2020 and already we can safely predict more Republican victories and another failure for the Dimocrats 10 year plan.

By the way, did we mention that white millennials voted for Donald J. Trump?:

This comes as evidence mounts that US millennials are more likely to identify as conservative than either Generation Xers or Baby Boomers were at the same age. [snip]

Trump’s level of support amongst white college-educated voters and white female voters was also unexpected.

CNN’s data put the Republican candidate ahead by 10 points among white women (among black women he was 90 points behind). Trump also polled 15 points ahead of Clinton among white male college graduates.

Trump also gained vast margins among white voters without college degrees.

In other words, as we wrote in October of 2015, Donald J. Trump walked away with the winning “Clinton Coalition” which Hillary Clinton stupidly discarded in favor of the Obama kookdom:

As we predicted long before conventional wisdom caught up to us this past weekend – Yes, Donald Trump looks to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. [snip]

The white working class should have been the bedrock of Hillary2016. The white working class support for Hillary Clinton in 2008 provided grand victories of 40 point margins when Hillary was most wounded. Now Hillary2016 has repeatedly abandoned those voters. [snip]

The bedrock of a winning coalition, the people Barack Obama dismissed in 2008 as “bitter” and clinging to their guns and Bibles, used to be the FDR coalition and the Clinton coalition. No longer. They are now part of the Trump Triumph. Hillary2016 has abandoned them so they have abandoned her. [snip]

In 2008 Hillary Clinton survived and thrived because she marched alongside the white working class. Now, the white working class is marching with Donald J. Trump – towards victory.

The real ascendant are ascendant for Trump. And therein lies the most catastrophic consequences for Barack Obama, the Clintons, Big Media, and the Dimocrats/Democrats.

Remember our argument that the FDR coalition which JFK and Bill Clinton built upon was the winning coalition? There is another aspect of the FDR victories which Democrats have dreamed of recreating. Think of it as a 40 year plan which led to the “Mistake In ’08” and other disasters. James Carville outlined the modest 40 year plan:

Now, no less a pundit than James Carville has stepped into the breach with his new book, 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation, an extended boast that demographic trends, particularly the partisan preferences of young people, will ensure an era of Democratic dominance.

A Democratic majority is emerging,” Carville declares. “This majority will guarantee that the Democrats remain in power for the next forty years.

Carville admitted after the 2010 elections that the 40 years boast would not come to pass. The failures of 2009 and 2010 forced Carville to that admission. But that boast was not the real 40 year plan.

The real 40 year plan was that Democrats had to win in 2008 and thereby replicate the lasting victories of FDR. The Democrats thought if they gifted the nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama great things would happen. It was a “make Democrats great again” plan. The delusion was this: Barack Obama and the coalition of the ascendant would win in 2008 and soon there would be an economic revival such that Democrats would get all the credit. This would lead to 40 years of voters rewarding the Democratic Party with victory just as voters rewarded Democrats for 40 years after FDR – until it all came crashing down with the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in 1994.

Of course, Barack Obama bungled the supposed economic recovery. In 2008 Obama inflicted his flim-flam stimulus and the deadly ObamaCare plans on the nation. Both such disasters that by the time they passed the nation revolted and rewarded Republicans.

The failed Obama economy of the first term did not sober up the Dimocrats. This time they were doubly sure of the 40 year plan. The thinking was “well, it didn’t work in 2008 but boy oh boy it will work in 2012 for sure by golly”. Again the notion was that in 2012 Barack Obama would win reelection and that would lead to a massive economic recovery and once again the Democrats would get the credit, as they got the credit for FDR, and that economic revival would lead to 40 years of voter rewards and endless power for Obama Dimocrats.

Now the 40 year plan works in favor of President-elect Donald J. Trump. If, as we suspect, President Donald J. Trump leads the nation to a great economic boom and lives up to “Make America Great Again” it will be President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans who will be rewarded for generations by the voters.

Already we see the road is clear for a massive generations-long Republican victory under the banner of President Donald J. Trump. How? The Dimocrats in 2016 knew they had to, had to, win the Senate. That’s because in 2018 there will be 25 Dimocrats up for reelection, many in Republican states, while only eight Republicans, mostly in red states, will be up for reelection.

So many endangered Dimocrats will make it easy for President Donald J. Trump to force his will on them. We expect Donald J. Trump Republicans will win at least 13 of those Senate seats in 2018 and build a super majority in the Senate that will last a very long time. In the House, the Republicans will redistrict after President Donald J. Trump is reelected and thereby keep their majorities for generations. The Supreme Court appointments by President Donald J. Trump will mean conservative majorities for generations as well.

The Obama controlled Dimocratic Party response to this catastrophic series of easily predictable events? A Muslim left wing loon to run the Obama Dimocrat Party.

The temper tantrum loons in the streets protesting the election of Donald J. Trump and those losers who can’t go to work or take exams because they are so very distraught are on to something. Deep down they realize that they are lost for generations and that Barack Obama is the tin plated calf god that failed. What they don’t realize is that the more they protest the more they help President-elect Donald J. Trump by alienating the American voter. The lessons of the failures of the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter loons are lessons lost on these latest loons and kooks.

President-elect Donald J. Trump has accomplished many great victories already. President Donald J. Trump’s victories are so many, so immeasurable, even he might get tired of winning.

@RealDonaldTrump Wins Election In High Stakes Poker Game Against Back Stabber @SpeakerRyan

This here Trump feller is one smart cookie. He’s a chess player yes. But he’s an even better poker player. During the primaries when the election was fixed against him in favor of Jeb Bush, Trump repeatedly said that if the Republican Party did not treat him fairly he would walk, and take his millions of voters along. The result was the Republican Party forced a loyalty oath on him, which Trump craftily used to trap the other nominees and the Party hierarchy, which in the end resulted in a Trump nomination victory.

Trump knew all about the art of the deal and Trump knew the GOP could not afford to lose his voters. As Trump won primaries, the GOP establishment in the form of the Mitt Romney clowns tried to use Ted Cruz as their cat’s paw to destroy Trump. Instead Trump beat them all. But rust never sleeps and these rusty political clowns continued to troll the streets in an attempt to scare Donald J. Trump.

Twelve days into October we can see the green felt table in the Riverboat with Donald J. Trump, in a vest, bands around his biceps, over his white cotton shirt, a Maverick style cowboy hat with silver band on his head tilted back, playing high stakes poker with blue eyed pus*y boy Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan attempted a coup this past weekend. A Bush tape was released on Friday with Trump goofing around with a boisterous little Bush boy talking about women. It reminded us of that Hartford Courant interview with another Bush:

Question: “When you’re not talking about politics, what do you and your father talk about?”
Bush: “Pussy.”

When you see a bush, a pus*y boy is not far behind…

Paul Ryan thought he was clever. The tricks the little blue eyed pus*y boy plays on Capitol Hill, he thought, would be used against Trump to great effect. First, before-during-after the convention, attack Trump every chance you get for whatever Trump says all the while pretending you have made your peace with the Trump nomination. Second, at a crucial moment before a debate and a few weeks before the election, finally announce at the end of a press release that you invited Donald J. Trump for the first time to a campaign event in your home district. Third, after the invitation release the tape that shocks pus*y boys, in order to destroy Trump. Fourth, signal the grassy knoll firing squad with a very public “disinvitation” and denunciation of Trump. Fifth, get pus*y boy Mormon and Romney ally Jason Chaffetz to withdraw his endorsement. Sixth, get more pus*sies to disendorse Trump. Seven, after Ayotte, McCain, and tens of other GOPers denounce Trump, have everyone call on Trump to withdraw and hint the replacement will be the VP nominee Mike Pence even though everyone knows it would be Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan’s plan never would have worked but Ryan never thought of that, because Ryan is a pus*y boy about to be schlonged by the big fingered Trump.

Why would the Paul Ryan plan never have worked? Because Trump is a fighter that does not quit. Trump wrote the Art of the Deal so he knows how to negotiate. Trump knows when to hold them and when to fold them. In short, Trump is a smart man and Paul Ryan is a pus*y boy. The definition of a pus*y boy? A pus*y boy does not have a strong woman’s vagina – he is only good at getting fuc*ed.

So after all the plotting, pus*y boy Paul Ryan found himself at a green felt table, in a Riverboat, playing poker with Donald J. Trump, six-shooters at his side fully loaded and rarin’ to blast. Trump got dealt his hand and then pus*y boy grabbed his, um, cards. Pus*y boy Paul placed his bet that Trump would get out after Trump saw all the chips arrayed against him.

Pus*y boy Paul placed his chips on the table – Chaffetz, the Gropinator Arnold Schwarzenegger (the guy that groped all those women and who while married to a Kennedy, impregnated his own maid), John McCain (the guy that has the dirtiest mouth in D.C. having even called his own wife a “cunt” and a “whore”), and threats of more, although Trump knew pus*y boy Paul had no more chips to play. Trump knew that at the Wisconsin event Trump was disinvited from some in the home town crowd booed the pus*y boy. Trump knew that Joe Heck of Nevada was also booed for his attacks on Trump. Trump knew he held, the trump cards.

So after pus*y boy Paul placed his bet, piled all his chips in the center of the table, the moment arrived. Would Trump meet the bet? Or would Trump fold, throw down his cards in surrender? Trump did what the pus*y boy never expected. Trump not only met the bet, Trump did what Trump does – TRUMP RAISED THE STAKES!!!!!

Trump put his chips on the table. Trump’s chips are the Republican Party at every level, the House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. Trump made it clear: “if I walk, I take my voters with me and you lose not only the White House, the Supreme Court, the Senate but you also lose all your power in the House of Representatives.” Trump made it clear he understood that a House of Representatives run by a Republican pus*y boy and a Senate run by a self interested conniver would stand up to the next president about as much as they stood up to Barack Obama. Trump knew without him in the White House TPP would pass almost immediately as would illegal immigration amnesty – and the Supreme Court that bowed to Obama on ObamaCare would be even worse. So Trump knew his voters and the American People had nothing to lose. Without Trump in the White House it was all over. So Trump raised the stakes in an international game of poker that even James Bond would not dare play.

Louie Gohmert, not an original Trump backer made it very clear that the current Republican leadership of the Congress will do nothing but make, then break promises:

Members on the call with Ryan described tense exchanges. The call lasted for about 45 minutes, before abruptly ending.

However, the Republican National Committee has pledged its continued support.

Some of the GOP’s most conservative lawmakers also continue to back Trump and chastise those who have abandoned him.

We have to get on board. It’s all in or nothing,” Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, who was on Ryan’s call, told Fox News on Tuesday.

He said 11 House members are with Ryan, whom Gohmert also lambasted for saying his focus is now on ensuring that Clinton doesn’t enter the White House with Democrats having taken control of the House, too.

It’s not going to happen,” said Gohmert, arguing the Republicans now control the House and Senate but have not effectively stopped the Obama administration’s agenda.

Another House member on the call said outspoken California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher called Republican leaders “cowards.”

Pus*y Ryan and the GOP establishment only have energy to attack Donald J. Trump. The GOP establishment coddles Obama. Promises from the GOP of future action are null and void ab initio.


Pus*y boy Paul thought he could play his games and win. Then Trump raised the stakes. In retrospect, Trump was always going to win.

There are some Trump supporters, Monica Crowley on Tuesday night for instance, who believe that Donald J. Trump should let surrogates attack the GOP and that Trump should only go after Hillary2016. We respectfully disagree.

We believe Donald J. Trump should continue to be unshackled for the remainder of the week. Trump has been getting his kicks in at the opposition party in the form of Hillary2016. But Donald J. Trump’s real opposition is the ruling class establishment – particularly the establishment of the Republican Party – and Big Media. We think Trump should continue to break the GOP Quislings and Big Media all this week and into next.

Trump can turn his attacks and attention against Hillary2016 after he dispatches his GOP opposition party. Next week there will be another debate. Trump can go to the debate having defeated the GOP establishment and Big Media. Then Trump can take on Hillary2016.

A few days before the debate Trump can highlight the latest nuclear bombs exploding inside Hillary2016. The constant bombardment of the Wikileak emails will be an endless source of ammunition.



Donald J. Trump loves Wikileaks. Donald J. Trump loves to play high stakes poker. Donald J. Trump loves to win.

Donald J. Trump holds the trump cards. Despite all the cooked polls immediately after Friday to be followed by a dramatic rise after the second debate all the higher, Donald J. Trump will win. Why? Because it’s a change election. That’s all you need to know.

The Art Of The Comeback: #Debate Winner @RealDonaldTrump – #Debate Loser Paul Ryan

Update: “Free at last, Free at last” we wrote below, about where Trump is now, quoting the Negro spiritual. Donald J. Trump sings along now:

As Establishment GOP Backs Away, Trump Says ‘The Shackles Have Been Taken Off Me’

As the Republican establishment backs away from him, Donald Trump says he now feels like “the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.” [snip]

Speaking of Ryan, Trump tweeted. “Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty. Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!”

On Monday, Trump said of the speaker: “Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee.”

Donald J. Trump tried to make peace. When Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment pretended to accept unity, the polls showed a president Trump would have a GOP House and GOP Senate. Now with the Ryan back stab the House and Senate will be lost to the Republicans if Trump loses. Trump voters will not vote for back stabbers of Trump. Ayotte, Heck, Kirk, McCain, will lose then drag down the House members. Either Ryan and the back stabbers surrender to the GOP voters or they will die political deaths not only of themselves but of their entire party.

The only solution is for Trump to attack the ruling political class regardless of alleged party ties. It was always going to have to be this way. Trump is the Final Avenger destined to destroy the ruling political class. As Trump attacks the ruling class wing of the GOP the back stabbers’ choice will be to submit to the will of the voters who support Trump or face destruction. Trump is no chump. Trump knows how to fight. Trump wrote the Art of the Deal. Trump negotiates from strength.


Trump has not forgotten McCain:


Trump will destroy the GOP establishment and the ruling political class:


Donald J. Trump will teach them. Donald J. Trump voters will teach them with finality.

————————————————————————–

Big Media is in shock. As we wrote, Donald J. Trump used the second debate to demonstrate command (circa Monica Lewinsky Bill Clinton) of the issues and situation to stage a massive comeback. Hillary2016 once again proved to be massively stupid in their move away from policy (where Hillary is supposed to be strong) to a gutter street fight about sex (which is where Trump’s decades long tabloid personality was honed) in Trump’s comfort zone. Hillary’s stupid Tweet played right into Trump’s hands at the debate and enabled Trump to go after Bill Clinton’s “horrific” activities in the White House.


Trump beat Bill Clinton like a rented mule, thanks to Hillary’s ill-advised Tweet. Trump’s best line to our ears was the bit about Lincoln.



It was an ad-lib line that devastated Hillary’s well prepared, over rehearsed nonsense to explain away the ‘ya gotta say one thing to rich donors behind closed Wall Street doors and another thing to the yokels in public who want to be pandered to’. Others cite the ‘I’ll appoint a special prosecutor’ line or the “because you’d be in jail” by Trump as their favorite moment.



But neither the Lincoln nor the special prosecutor lines should take away from Trump’s great moment of emancipation.

Donald J. Trump is, in the words of the old Negro spiritual “Free at last, Free at last.” At the debate Sunday night Donald J. Trump liberated himself from the toxic Republican Congress that enables Barack Obama. Trump said, And I’ll be honest, I am so disappointed in congressmen, including Republicans, for allowing this to happen.

That is a moment of liberation. Like Bill Clinton with “triangulation” Donald Trump rebuilds the Republican Party by discarding the establishment of the Republican Party. This is a war that always needed to happen. Donald J. Trump sounds the death knell of the ruling political class and that includes the Republican Party ruling class. The establishment of the Republican Party knows Trump is a threat to them. That is why so many used the video as an excuse to attack Trump. Today, Paul Ryan, the illegal immigration amnesty advocate declared he will not help Donald Trump nor campaign with Donald Trump.

Donald J. Trump has already responded with a fist in the face:


Paul Ryan is a dope. He somehow thinks he can attack Donald J. Trump and get away with it. But Donald J. Trump is a fighter. Worse, for Paul Ryan and the establishment, Donald Trump voters love a fight too. Donald Trump voters will vote for Trump and abandon the Quisling Republican Party ruling class that reigns over disaster. Paul Ryan somehow thinks he can denounce Trump and Trump voters won’t care. Paul Ryan is a back stabbing weasel who leads the Republican majority into peril:

Trump’s Solid Debate Could Hurt GOP Defectors
Their hasty repudiation of the candidate may cost them the votes of his supporters
.

The Re­pub­lic­an pan­ic was pre­ma­ture.[snip]

After the Trump tape leaked Fri­day af­ter­noon and gen­er­ated non­stop cable-news cov­er­age, many Re­pub­lic­ans had a col­lect­ive pan­ic at­tack. In­stead of wait­ing to see polling on how voters would re­act, many chose to cut bait with their nom­in­ee. The Re­pub­lic­an Na­tion­al Com­mit­tee, which has been re­li­ably boost­ing Trump since he locked the nom­in­a­tion, re­mained si­lent. [snip]

Re­pub­lic­an party lead­ers have been grap­pling with an un­com­fort­able real­ity: Their most re­li­able voters are en­tirely dis­con­nec­ted from the GOP lead­er­ship. The grass­roots don’t in­ter­pret these con­tro­ver­sies the same way as the party elite. The res­ults of a Politico/Morn­ing Con­sult on­line pan­el sur­vey, con­duc­ted in the im­me­di­ate af­ter­math of the re­lease of the Trump tape, il­lus­trated this dy­nam­ic in stark terms. A whop­ping 74 per­cent of GOP re­spond­ents wanted party of­fi­cials to con­tin­ue to stand by Trump; only 13 per­cent dis­agreed. The one-day poll, con­duc­ted on Sat­urday, showed Trump trail­ing Clin­ton by only 4 points.

At the same time, sev­er­al top Re­pub­lic­an elec­ted of­fi­cials, from House Speak­er Paul Ry­an to Nevada GOP Sen­ate nom­in­ee Joe Heck, were booed when they re­buked Trump in cam­paign ap­pear­ances Sat­urday. In­deed, the Re­pub­lic­an polit­ic­al grave­yard is littered with can­did­ates who took on Trump only to see their polit­ic­al ca­reers im­plode. Ted Cruz was so polit­ic­ally dam­aged after re­fus­ing to en­dorse Trump at the con­ven­tion that he back­tracked months later in hopes of sal­va­ging his polit­ic­al stand­ing back home.

For months, the polit­ic­al cal­cu­la­tion for swing-state Re­pub­lic­ans was to sup­port Trump but not en­dorse him. That for­mu­la­tion was re­mark­ably awk­ward, but it was work­ing. Most Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ates were run­ning well ahead of Trump, even in the midst of his many con­tro­ver­sies. Be­fore the Trump tape, anti-Trump Re­pub­lic­ans were still likely to show up at the polls and vote for Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ates lower on the bal­lot. Trump voters were sat­is­fied that even these luke­warm sup­port­ers were with their can­did­ate, and would re­ward them ac­cord­ingly. Both those as­sump­tions are now in flux.

The anti-Trump Re­pub­lic­ans now could simply stay home out of dis­en­chant­ment with their party’s weak-kneed re­sponse to the em­bar­rass­ing tape. Or Trump sup­port­ers could pun­ish new de­fect­ors like Heck and Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hamp­shire by leav­ing the down-bal­lot por­tion of their bal­lot blank. It’s a worst-case scen­ario that was pre­vent­able if the can­did­ates had just held out for one more month.

At Tues­day’s de­bate, Trump proved that he’s the same can­did­ate that he’s been all along—and more ag­gress­ive and nimble than he was in the first de­bate. That was enough to shut down any dis­cus­sion of him drop­ping out of the race. But now the GOP has to worry that by im­puls­ively break­ing their Faus­ti­an bar­gain be­cause of a dec­ade-old video­tape, they may have cost them­selves con­trol of the Sen­ate.

It’s not just the senate in peril now. If Trump voters decide by even a small margin to dump Ayotte, Heck, Kirk, and the rest of the Quislings in the senate, the cascade effect will also take down the House majority. Paul Ryan and the rest of the Quislings could have given Trump a chance to explain himself before a national debate audience before “impulsively” attacking Donald Trump. But such is the fear of the ruling class that the Republican establishment thought they could kill Donald Trump without facing the guillotine and the wrath of the people.

The GOP Quisling ruling class did not act “impulsively”. They acted with relish. It was the perfumed nobility of the ruling class behind their Versailles windows plotting to crush the revolution that threatens to engulf their world in flames. Likewise, Roger Simon gets it wrong when he declares the GOP establishment cowardly politicians. It’s not cowardice. It is calculation. The ruling class thinks it can squash the revolution with a little sex, lies, and videotape:

Panicky GOP Leaders Should Come Home after Trump Wins Debate #2

I was disturbed so many Republican leaders deserted Donald Trump within hours of the publication of the now infamous 2005 video, though I wasn’t surprised. Most politicians are cowards, prone to panic. But they didn’t stop to think. [snip]

No doubt many of those Republican leaders are now weighing their choices. Should I go back? What if more garbage comes out? (It will, but so what?) What if I remain a Trump critic? Will he be vindictive if he wins?

There is no need to fear a “vindictive” victorious Trump. What the ruling political class has to fear are the people in the streets, not shouting “bread, bread, we want bread” but rather “change, change, we want change!!!” It is Trump VOTERS the ruling class must fear. Trump voters will turn their wrath on the Quisling ruling class and run them out like fire drives out vermin.

Donald J. Trump at the second debate stoked the fires of revolutionary change. Big Media and their cohort ruling class vermin are terrified. Many advised Trump to not bring forth Bill Clinton sex scandals. Trump did not listen to them. Trump staged a clever press conference before the debate with women who claim Bill Clinton attacked them. These women then appeared at the debate with the effect that the Clintons dared not risk a trip to the “spin room” afterwards. Expect these women to show up at the next debate to act as wolfbane and garlic against vampires. As we wrote, it was foolish of Hillary2016 to attack Trump on sex:

They will continue with their Pussy riot. At that point we will discard all our previously held opinions which are that sex scandals against the Clintons don’t profit Republicans. At that point Donald J. Trump can make a very spirited and successful attack against Bill Clinton’s predatory behaviors and Hillary Clinton’s defense of same. Republicans will finally get the fight on sex they always wanted. This time they will finally win.

It was 3 to 1 against Trump. The moderators again unfair. Martha Raddatz morphed into Candy Crowley and Lester Holt as she argued with Trump about Syria. A Mitt Romney or another weak candidate would have bowed before the power of the Big Media moderator. But Donald J. Trump fought back and mocked Raddatz’s shouts that there were reasons to warn ISIS about attacks to come in Syria. Common sense Trump stood by his strong stance that warning the enemy of an attack to come is entirely foolish.

Now the fight will continue. Trump, as demonstrated in his slap to Paul Ryan, will continue to pummel the Quisling ruling political class on illegal immigration. It will be a fight to the finish with Hillary’s dream of “open borders” as the atomic bomb. Paul Ryan will continue to fight for “open borders” too because that is the dream of the Chamber of Commerce low wage “dreamers”.

Donald J. Trump won the second debate and set the stage to win the third debate and the election. For a man who was pronounced dead by idiots such as Ben Smith who called it vindication for Big Media, it was an amazing performance.

Bill Clinton, the original triangulator, called himself the “comeback kid”. But the Comeback King is Donald J. Trump. No surprise. Donald J. Trump wrote the book. At the second debate Donald J. Trump lived his book. It was the Art Of The Comeback come to life.

Why @RealDonaldTrump Wins: Don King For Trump And A Bush Tells A Kennedy He Will Vote For A Clinton

Donald J. Trump could not ask for a more powerful endorsement of his message than the latest Bush-Kennedy-Clinton news. Trump wins when Americans see the ruling political establishment lined up across party lines, in solidarity for the ruling political class establishment, and against Trump, the Final Avenger.

The ruling political establishment is doing everything to stop Trump and the “Deplorables”. The “racist” race card is played against Trump, the “birther” card is played against Trump, but all the news plays FOR Trump. Look at the news. Nate Silver, Al-Sisi, Don King, blacks, TrumpOcrats, Never-NeverTrump, Anthony’s weiner, the bombings – everything’s coming up roses for Trump.

What stinks more of a royal ruling class against the “deplorable” people, what reeks more of a “let them eat cake” retort against the masses demanding “bread” than a Bush telling a Kennedy he will vote for a Clinton?:

Over a 24-hour span that began with Jeb Bush’s surprising and sardonic cameo in Sunday’s Emmy Awards broadcast and Monday night’s reports that his father, former President George H.W. Bush, had told a family friend privately that he intended to support Hillary Clinton, the Bushes returned to the headlines, and are giving Trump just the establishment foil he so capably exploits.

“He probably loves that former President Bush isn’t backing him because it underlines his whole case against the establishment,” one former Jeb Bush campaign staffer said. “I bet he’s highlighting it in his stump speech before long.” [snip]

There is a mutual regard that exists, despite their obvious political differences, between the families,” one source close to the Bush family said. “And also a mutual disregard, a shared disgust for Trump as someone so far outside of that club.” [snip]

The elder Bush’s admission that he plans to vote for Clinton occurred during a board meeting for the former president’s Thousand Points of Light Foundation. Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, asked Bush about his choice during a receiving line and got a frank answer—which she then posted to her Facebook page, prompting news reports Monday and Tuesday confirming that Bush indeed plans to vote for Clinton. [snip]

“The reality is, if all of this meant something, Donald Trump would not be the nominee,” said Bruce Haynes, a GOP consultant in Washington. “Out in Raleigh and Des Moines, people don’t give a damn about what the Bushes say or do. If anything, they see the establishment politicians closing ranks around Clinton and are more emboldened to do the opposite.”

This is a remarkably transparent exhibition of the out of touch ruling political class. The American political class pimps out endorsements to their fellow dwarfs like hemophiliac blue-bloods on the Spanish throne deformed by generations of inbreeding.

These pimp endorsements might have worked wonders against dwarfs like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. But against Donald J. Trump they fail.

The racist card fails against Trump when very famous African-Americans endorse Trump.


Trump has made “massive gains with black voters“. Without doubt, The Democratic Party’s worse nightmare happened when Donald Trump reached out to black Americans at a campaign rally in Wisconsin.Democrats Are Losing Control of Black Americans.”

It’s not just black voters! Hispanics too! Even some principled establishment courtiers are moving to Trump. One of Robert Kennedy’s top aides, Adam Walinsky who many will remember, is on board the TrumpTrain:

I Was RFK’s Speechwriter. Now I’m Voting for Trump. Here’s Why.

The Democratic Party has become something both JFK and RFK would deplore—the party of war.
By Adam Walinsky
September 21, 2016

I was a Democrat all my life. I came to Washington to serve President John Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy. When the president was murdered and his brother struck off on his own, I joined his Senate campaign and staff as his legislative assistant and speechwriter, until his presidential campaign ended with his own assassination. I ran on a (losing) Democratic ticket in the New York state elections of 1970. When I was working to enact my own program of police reform in the 1980s and 1990s, then-Governor Bill Clinton was chairman of my National Committee for the Police Corps.

This year, I will vote to elect Donald Trump as president of the United States. [snip]

In fact, in all the years of the so-called War on Terror, only one potential American president has had the intelligence, the vision, the sheer sanity to see that America cannot fight the entire world at once; who sees that America’s natural and necessary allies in this fight must include the advanced and civilized nations that are most exposed and experienced in their own terror wars, and have the requisite military power and willingness to use it. Only one American candidate has pointed out how senseless it is to seek confrontation with Russia and China, at the same time that we are trying to suppress the very jihadist movements that they also are attacking.

That candidate is Donald Trump. Throughout this campaign, he has said that as president, he would quickly sit down with President Putin and seek relaxation of tensions between our nations, and possible collaboration in the fight against terrorists. On this ground alone, he marks himself as greatly superior to all his competitors, earlier in the primaries and now in the general election. [snip]

Moreover Trump marks himself as a man of singular political courage, willing to defy the hysteria of the Washington war hawks, the establishment and the mainstream media who daily describe him as virtually anti-American for daring to voice ideas and opinions at variance with their one-note devotion to war. [snip]

Truly, America first, last and always; for ourselves and for our posterity. These are the reasons why I will vote for Donald Trump for president.

It’s a blistering denunciation of the political establishment and a powerful call to arms for Donald J. Trump from Adam Walinsky.

Adam Walinsky is not alone. The TrumpOcrats are building up a wave of insurrection against the political establishment. In electoral vote rich Ohio, CBS News reports, the insurrectionist forces are in control of large swaths of territory for Trump:

STRUTHERS, OHIO — On a recent Saturday, standing in her driveway, Halle Minchin Skook could not fathom why her neighbor was pissing on Youngstown’s Democratic tradition and voting for Donald Trump this election cycle. [snip]

Standing in the driveway outside her hunter green wood paneled childhood home where she still lived, Skook was scornful of the following that Trump has developed in Struthers, a traditionally Democratic stronghold in the heart of working class Mahoning County, along the eastern flank of Ohio. [snip]

But here on Como Street in Struthers, where CBS News spent a recent weekend knocking on every door on the block, Skook was in the minority. All around her, the community was ditching their Democratic roots and flocking to Trump.

Paul Sracic, who has lived in the area for years and is chair of the department of politics and international relations at Youngstown University, described Trump’s “blue-collar billionaire” identity as the perfect cocktail to attract onetime Democrats here.

They know he’s not really a Republican, and that Mitt Romney hates him, so that helps,” Psaric said of the voters in his community. “So instead it’s like, ‘I’m not becoming a country club Republican, I’m a part of Trump’s party.’” [snip]

The story of these defections goes back to March when over 6,171 registered Democrats voted in the GOP primary that was a showdown between Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Even the Democratic mayor of Struthers was caught with a Trump For President sign in his front yard.

But the Democrats here have not come back home. Instead, many of them are still looking to Trump.

I’ve been a lifelong union guy, a working guy,” said Jeff Kulow, a 25-year member of the Teamsters who recently retired. “Can you imagine people like me going to Trump or going Republican?

Kulow said President Obama, a politician “against everything I believe in,” has been the tipping point. He blamed a $650 increase in his health care premiums directly on the Affordable Care Act​.

“They just don’t get it anymore with us,” Kulow said of the Democratic Party. “Maybe in an upscale area or downscale, maybe they’ll resonate. But around here — all working class and middle class, everyone has left the Democratic party. I can’t see myself ever going back.”

The “basket of deplorables” contempt felt by the Democratic Party against what used to be their base voters is not a figment of imagination. Leftist Robert Kuttner of the Leftist American Prospect is forced to admit that we have been right and the Dimocratic Party has turned against the white working class and the white working class has turned against the Dimocratic Party:

Hard to Believe, but Trump Could Win

Democrats’ longstanding failure to address inequality and insecurity among the white working class helped set the stage for 2016. [snip]

One factor is that political elites have underestimated the deep disaffection of middle- and working-class, downwardly mobile white people. Working-class whites may be well off compared to most blacks, Latinos, and immigrants, but they don’t see it that way, and not without reason.

For decades, two trends have been converging: increasing economic insecurity and falling earnings among white men, and the belated, entirely legitimate claims of out-groups.

The Democratic Party has embraced those demands—of women, blacks, gays, lesbians and transgender people, immigrants, and refugees. That is to the Democrats’ great credit.

This election would be a very different story if they also championed working-class people against economic elites, but they have done that more hesitantly. On the contrary, too much of the white working class, Democrats seem to be in the pockets of bankers as much as Republicans are.

The political class of inbred idiots must be overthrown and every day the slicing machine screeches can be heard as it grinds to razor sharpness. Big Pink hater Nate Silver is now forced to admit that instead of impossible, Donald J. Trump might easily become the next President of the United States:

Nate Silver: Trump surges from 3% to 48% chance of winning

The latest vote projection from elections guru Nate Silver has Republican Donald Trump just six electoral votes short of winning and one point away from equaling Hillary Clinton’s popular vote.

The newest Five Thirty Eight survey Trump at 264 and Clinton at 272, two more than needed. It’s the closest in recent weeks.

Nate Silver is respected by idiots in the ruling political class. We don’t respect his analysis. His attacks on this website are not the cause of our scorn. To our thinking smart political analysis predicts from far away what will happen. We knew back in August of 2015 Donald J. Trump would be the Republican nominee at a time Silver thought Trump’s chances of winning were in the low single digits. What use is Silver now, a few weeks before the election, confirming what is obvious?

Likewise, Trump hater Larry Sabato is quickly revisiting his dumb predictions of a Trump trounce into a possible Trump triumph, bitchy little anti-Trump swipes and snipes included:

The Trump Surge

And then, everything changed.

Well, not everything, but enough to generate the first major revision in our electoral map, and all of it is in Donald Trump’s direction for now. [snip]

One more thing before we get to the new map: It’s reasonable to ask why we are making substantial changes to our ratings in a special Monday issue just four days after an update where we made only minor alterations.

In the midst of writing that earlier update, we were stunned by the flood of bad numbers for Clinton, which compounded erosion that had been taking place over the course of the previous few weeks. Some of this was natural — Clinton’s post-convention lead was probably artificially high — but late last week her numbers started to curdle, both before and after our regular Crystal Ball release on Thursday. Credible pollsters like CNN/ORC, Bloomberg/Selzer, CBS News/New York Times and others produced polls showing Trump up three to five points in the typically critical state of Ohio, up in Florida, up in Iowa, and virtually tied nationally. [snip]

Simultaneously, and related, the Democratic position in the fierce battle to control the U.S. Senate has deteriorated. Naturally, in an age with relatively little ticket-splitting, when Trump moves up, so do GOP chances to hold the upper chamber. Democrats had counted on a big Clinton victory to lift them to at least 50 Senate seats, if not an outright majority.

That isn’t currently happening, as we explain below.

The latest bombings only help Trump. The exposed Weiner with rape fantasies of a 15 year old girl only helps Trump against the corrupt ruling political class.

Donald J. Trump can only hope that the Bush clan of blue-bloods unites on the campaign trail with the Kennedys to stump for the Clintons. The “deplorables” will be ready with the scythes.

The political class is ripe for the leveling harvest of the guillotine.

Let Trump Be Trump Power Pivot: The @RealDonaldTrump Rope-a-Dope Double Punch Speech Strategy, Part II

Make that three speeches, not the two speeches we referenced in Part I, that shook the world. In this Part II we’ll discuss Trump’s rope-a-dope, now triple punch, speech strategy. We begin with a Trump hater extraordinaire who took this long to see what we saw last year when Trump announced.

Trump hater Matt Bai at Rolling Stone drunkenly stumbled into a topic we have discussed long ago and many times. We wrote long ago that Trump destroyed the old corrupt Republican Party because Obama destroyed the old Democratic Party coalition of FDR/Kennedy/Bill Clinton. Obama’s stupidity opened a path for the white working class and seniors to go to the Republican Party and provide success to Donald J. Trump in this year’s GOP primaries.

But Donald J. Trump not only destroyed the old corrupt Republican Party. Trump is building a new home for seniors and the white working class. Donald J. Trump is building a massive new tower soon to be called the New Republican Party. That’s what the triple powerful speeches have been about. The stunning news for Trump haters and the ancien régime of the GOP is that Donald J. Trump is not only bringing in seniors and the white working class. Donald J. Trump is bringing in a whole lotta love from groups long abandoned by the GOP. Donald J. Trump has Make The GOP Great Again ambitions.

Here is Trump hater Matt Bai, full of Trump fear and loathing:

A Republican Workers’ Party?

Democratic incompetence has made the previously unthinkable possible: Republicans are reimagining themselves as a labor party

A horrifying article appeared in The New York Times last week, entitled “They Want Trump to Make the G.O.P. a Workers’ Party.”

In it, conservative intellectuals say they disavow Donald Trump, but also see in his rise a reason to shift their party’s focus.

The new Republicans would no longer be the party of “business and the privileged,” but the protector of a disenfranchised working class.

This was unplanned. If it happens, it’ll be a change that takes place not because conservative leaders ever wanted it, but because voters demanded it.

Basically, large numbers of working-class voters, particularly white working-class voters, long ago abandoned the Democratic Party in favor of the Republicans. [snip]

All of this soul-searching is happening now because the maniac Trump has hijacked a portion of the Republican base and is driving it off an electoral cliff. (He will clutch his own hand all the way down in the inevitable Thelma & Louise crash ending.)

Republican propaganda for decades pushed magical-thinking concepts like “trickle-down economics” that asked lower-income voters to accept present sacrifices for theoretical bigger payoffs down the road.

Until this year, Republican voters mostly bought it. But Trump was their way of telling their leaders they’re done waiting. They want their piece of the pie now, even if it means unleashing the Trumpinator to get it.

People have been conscious of the defection of working-class voters to the Republican Party for years, but this has always been dismissed as the consequence of skillfull propaganda. It’s the What’s the Matter With Kansas? creation story, i.e., that the white working class has been hoodwinked into going against its own economic interests thanks to cynical/backward appeals to race, religion and culture.

But that isn’t the whole story, as some leading Democrats are beginning to realize. Joe Biden went on Morning Joe a few weeks ago and admitted that “the Democratic Party over all hasn’t spoken enough to [working-class voters],” the “ordinary people busting their necks.” [snip]

The problem with all of this is that the Democrats went so far in the direction of advocacy for the global religion that they made something as idiotic as the rise of unabashed nativist Donald Trump possible.

Worse, Trump’s rise will give the Globalist Faith Militant an automatic argument for more time. They will decry any criticism of free trade or globalization as racist Trumpism, and Trump is such a galactic jackass that this will work, his vast inventory of offensive bleatings discrediting even the legitimate economic concerns of his voters.

But expecting American politicians to advocate first and foremost for their own constituents isn’t isolationism. It’s just rational self-interest, which neoliberals only seem to disbelieve in when it pertains to labor. Moreover we didn’t call movements to disinvest from South Africa or the Soviet Union “nativism.” We called that idealism.

Matt Bai is so stupid, so full of hate, he can’t see past his anti-Trump jingoism. If Matt Bai had an ounce of intellectual honesty he would praise Trump for telling the truth and fighting for the working class. But the left is so corrupt we cannot expect anything like honesty from their precincts.

As we wrote long ago, Donald J. Trump destroyed the Republican Party. Now Donald J. Trump builds the new GOP:

Consider, both major political parties for their own selfish reasons, seek to impose illegal immigration amnesty, common core, disaster trade policies such as TPP. Both parties are in cahoots on these issues. Donald J. Trump is against illegal immigration amnesty, common core, disaster trade policies.

The GOP establishment wants to sell the notion that the problem with Donald J. Trump is one of “tone” and bombastic “personality”. But the GOP establishment’s problem with Donald J. Trump is one of policy. That’s why there can be no peace. One must die for the other to live.

Donald J. Trump is against what both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party want to impose on this nation. Recall that many of the abominations of the Obama gangster government were birthed by Republicans. TARP, Common Core, bailouts, trade deals – were authored by George W. Bush and then co-authored by Barack Obama. ObamaCare? It used to be called RomneyCare.

Donald J. Trump is against what both the Democratic Party of Barack Obama and the Republican Party of George W. Bush have imposed on American citizens. The American people are against what the Democratic Party of Barack Obama and the Republican Party of George W. Bush have wrought. That’s why there is a New Republican Party rising.

Donald J. Trump, aided and abetted by the voters, will bring about a realignment – a New Republican Party.

The last three Donald J. Trump speeches are the building blocks of the New Republican Party. The first speech was a tough discussion on terrorism. The second speech is the one we focused on in Part I. This second speech was a direct appeal to black voters (and a clever way to appeal to white suburban voters who don’t want to be perceived as “racist”) and an attack on lobbyists and the “rigged system”. At the end of the second speech Trump summed it all up – an appeal to blacks and the poor and an attack on the rigged system that benefits the powerful political establishment:

Let’s talk about what this means for the inner cities of America. It’s time to break through the television noise, the entrenched interests. I understand that a lot of powerful people in our political system – a lot of people who’ve created our problems – will lose a lot of their contracts, and their special gigs, if African-American voters, and all minority voters, support my campaign.

It’s time to stop making the special interests rich. It’s time to make the American people rich.

I am going to Make America Wealthy Again.

The Democratic Party has run nearly every inner city in this country for 50 years, and run them into financial ruin.

They’ve ruined the schools.

They’ve driven out the jobs.

They’ve tolerated a level of crime no American should consider acceptable.

Violent crime has risen 17% in America’s 50 largest cities last year. Killings of police officers this year is up nearly 50 percent. Homicides are up more than 60% in Baltimore. They are up more than 50% in Washington, D.C.

This is the future offered by Hillary Clinton. More poverty, more crime, and more of the same. The future she offers is the most pessimistic thing I can possibly imagine.

It is time for a different future.

Here is what I am proposing.

First, on immigration. No community in this country has been hurt worse by Hillary Clinton’s immigration policies than the African-American community. Now she is proposing to print instant work permits for millions of illegal immigrants, taking jobs directly from low-income Americans. [snip]

On trade, I am going to renegotiate NAFTA, stand up to China, withdraw from the TPP, and protect every last American job.

On taxes, I am going to give a massive tax cut to every worker and small business in this country, bring thousands of new companies and millions of new jobs onto our shores – and make it very difficult for our businesses to leave.

I am going to reform our regulations so jobs stay in America, and new businesses come to America to hire workers right here in Milwaukee. Every policy my opponent has sends jobs overseas. I am going to bring trillions in new wealth back to the United States.

On education, it is time to have school choice, merit pay for teachers, and to end the tenure policies that hurt good teachers and reward bad teachers. We are going to put students and parents first.

Hillary Clinton would rather deny opportunities to millions of young African-American children, just so she can curry favor with the education bureaucracy.

I am going to allow charter schools to thrive, and help young kids get on the American ladder of success: a good education, and a good-paying job.

On crime, I am going to support more police in our communities, appoint the best prosecutors and judges in the country, pursue strong enforcement of federal laws, and I am going to break up the gangs, the cartels and criminal syndicates terrorizing our neighborhoods. To every lawbreaker hurting innocent people in this country, I say: your free reign will soon come crashing to an end.

On healthcare, we are going to get rid of Obamacare – which has caused soaring double-digit premium increases – and give choice to patients and consumers. Aetna, just today, announced they are dropping out – as are many of the major insurance companies.

On government corruption, I am going to restore honor to our government. We’ve seen the corruption of Hillary Clinton, the mass email deletions, the pay-for-play at the State Department, the profiteering, the favors given to foreign corporations and governments at your expense. We’ve seen a former Secretary of State lie to Congress about her illegal email scheme, risk innocent American lives, and bring dishonor onto our government.

In my Administration, I am going to enforce all laws concerning the protection of classified information. No one will be above the law.

I am going to forbid senior officials from trading favors for cash by preventing them from collecting lavish speaking fees through their spouses when they serve.

I am going to ask my senior officials to sign an agreement not to accept speaking fees from corporations with a registered lobbyist for five years after leaving office, or from any entity tied to a foreign government. This is all just the beginning.

We are going to make this a government of the people once again. This is our chance to take back power from all the people who’ve taken it from you. The reason you see the establishment media lining up behind my opponent is because they are scared that you, with your vote, can take away their power and return it to your family and community.

These are tough times. But I know we can make American Greater Than Ever Before.

To do this, we are going to need a fighter in the White House.

I will be your fighter. [snip]

The only individuals she’s ever delivered for is her donors – not the people.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. My opponent asks her supporters to repeat a three-word pledge. Her pledge reads: “I’m With Her”

I choose to recite a different pledge. My pledge reads: “I’m With You – the American people.”

I will fight to ensure that every American is treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally. We will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all of its forms, and seek a new future of security, prosperity and opportunity – a future built on our common culture and values as one American people.

I am asking for your vote so I can be your champion in the White House. We will once again be a country of law and order, and a country of great success.

To every parent who dreams for their children, and to every child who dreams for their future, I say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make American Safe Again.

And We Will Make America Great Again.

That’s a New Republican Party speech not an old GOP speech. The third Trump speech is of a like manner. An outstanding line from the third speech is Trump taking on both parties and allocating a share of the blame to the Republican Party. The entire speech is a summation of the two earlier speeches:

On Monday, I laid out my plan to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism.

On Tuesday, in Wisconsin, I talked about how we are going to restore law and order to this country. [snip]

I speak the truth for all of you, and for everyone in this country who doesn’t have a voice.

I speak the truth on behalf of the factory worker who lost his or her job.

I speak the truth on behalf of the Veteran who has been denied the medical care they need – and so many are not making it. They are dying.

I speak the truth on behalf of the family living near the border that deserves to be safe in their own country but is instead living with no security at all.

Our campaign is about representing the great majority of Americans – Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Conservatives and Liberals – who read the newspaper, or turn on the TV, and don’t hear anyone speaking for them. All they hear are insiders fighting for insiders.

These are the forgotten men and women in our society, and they are angry at so much on so many levels. The poverty, the unemployment, the failing schools, the jobs moving to other countries.

I am fighting for these forgotten Americans.

Trump also addressed the world he comes from which helps to explain the departure of Paul Manafort and Corey Lewandowski as well as the new team Trump has assembled. A builder like Trump understands that you hire the crane operator only for as long as she is needed, once the job is done, the project moves forward. Manafort’s job was to appease the Republican establishment during the Republican convention and to make sure Trump secured the delegates for the convention. Manafort did his job. Now a new team was needed.

In the world of Trump you do your job. The mission comes first. The excavator arrives to dig the earth so the foundation can be laid and once that job is done the excavators leave. The iron workers arrive to build the skeletal frame then the iron workers leave. The bricklayers arrive to their job followed by the contractors who border rooms with their plasterboard, followed by the carpenters, painters, floor installers, electricians, and eventually the tenants.

Trump comes from a world of easy to see achievements:

In the world I come from, if something is broken, you fix it.

If something isn’t working, you replace it.

If a product doesn’t deliver, you make a change.

I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens.

That’s why I am running: to end the decades of bitter failure and to offer the American people a new future of honesty, justice and opportunity. A future where America, and its people, always – and I mean always – come first.

Aren’t you tired of a system that gets rich at your expense?

Aren’t you tired of the same old lies and the same old broken promises? And Hillary Clinton has proven to be one of the greatest liars of all time.

Aren’t you tired of arrogant leaders who look down on you, instead of serving and protecting you?

That is all about to change – and it’s about to change soon. We are going to put the American people first again. [snip]

Instead, every story is told from the perspective of the insiders. It’s the narrative of the people who rigged the system, never the voice of the people it’s been rigged against.

So many people suffering in silence. No cameras, no coverage, no outrage from a media class that seems to get outraged over just about everything else.

So again, it’s not about me. It’s never been about me. It’s about all the people in this country who don’t have a voice.

I am running to be their voice.

I am running to be the voice for every forgotten part of this country that has been waiting and hoping for a better future.

I am glad that I make the powerful a little uncomfortable now and again – INCLUDING SOME POWERFUL PEOPLE IN MY OWN PARTY. Because it means I am fighting for real change.

There’s a reason the hedge fund managers, the financial lobbyists, the Wall Street investors, are throwing their money at Hillary Clinton. Because they know she will make sure the system stays rigged in their favor.

It’s the powerful protecting the powerful.

The insiders fighting for the insiders.

I am fighting for you.

Them’s fighting words. Trump is birthing a New Republican Party with appeals to all the disaffected.

Perhaps that is why Trump is rising in the polls nationally and in Pennsylvania.

One last point, the rope-a-dope. While Hillary has disappeared more or less from the campaign trail, on most days Donald Trump is active every day. Trump and Hillary both knew that the stupid Olympic games (can’t we rid ourselves of this silliness or relegate the games to every ten years?) would suck up the news cycle. Hillary effectively disappeared during this period. Trump’s strategy has been to soak up attention with campaign appearances in state after state knowing he could break on local television through the sports fog.

But Donald J. Trump’s most audacious rope-a-dope strategy, the most nerve racking strategy, has been to rely on free attention from Big Media and not spend cash this summer season. Hillary2016 by contrast has spent money hand over fist which has led to higher poll ratings. The results are classic Muhammad Ali rope-a-dope:

Trump’s campaign spending at half the rate of Clinton’s

Donald Trump doubled his campaign expenses last month yet was still spending at a far slower clip than Hillary Clinton.

New finance documents show the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign spent about $18.5 million in July. By comparison, the Democratic presidential nominee spent about $38 million.



Boxer Muhammad Ali had a boxing strategy. Knowing his opponent’s strength and fully aware of that power, Ali went to the ropes surrounding the boxing ring. There, Ali took blow after blow, brutal punch after brutal punch. Ali only jabbing back sufficiently to convince the referee that he was still able to fight so the ref would not end the fight. Ali, in his “protective stance” against the ropes encouraged the beating delivered by his opponent, who now sells hamburger grills. Ali, took to the ropes to rope himself a dope. “The plan is to cause the opponent to punch himself out and make mistakes which the boxer can then exploit in a counter-attack.” Compare Ali, to Trump:

At the time some observers thought that Ali was being horribly beaten and worried that they might see him get killed in the ring. [snip] However, far from being brutalized, Ali was relatively protected from Foreman’s blows. Norman Mailer described the advantage of Ali’s rope-a-dope this way: “Standing on one’s feet, it is painful to absorb a heavy body punch even when blocked with one’s arm. The torso, the legs and the spine take the shock. Leaning on the ropes, however, Ali can pass it along; the rope will receive the strain.”[2] Ali’s preparation for the fight, which involved toughening himself up by allowing his sparring partners to pummel him, contributed to observers’ sense that Ali was outmatched. But when Foreman became tired from the beating he was delivering, Ali took advantage and won the match.

The dumb observers were wrong. Like Ali, Donald J. Trump has been considered out for the count. But like Ali, Trump comes out punching at a time of his choosing, in accord with his strategy. The time to punch forward starts this week, just before Labor Day as attention to political campaigns increases, as the Olympic tomfoolery ends.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

Let Trump Be Trump Power Pivot: The @RealDonaldTrump Rope-a-Dope Double Punch Speech Strategy, Part I

Update: As we write at the end of our article, Big Media hates Donald J. Trump for ideological reasons and because Big Media has financial interests at stake. Donald J. Trump uses Big Media like a dog uses a chew toy then Trump does not give Big Media what Big Media wants: respect and money. Big Media is scum and Donald J. Trump hits them where it hurts:

Spending on political advertising during the U.S. presidential election has dropped 60 percent from 2012, a troubling sign for local TV broadcasters that were counting on a windfall. [snip]

Spending is down in part because Trump’s campaign has relied instead on getting his message across in a steady stream of media interviews and tweets.

In other news, Donald J. Trump is in Baton Rouge, Paul Manafort is no longer with the Trump campaign, and Barack Obama continues to golf and give his daughter advice on how to join the Choom gang. Trump it up:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence were in Louisiana Friday to survey the flood damage that killed at least 13 people and displaced thousands more.

The visit comes amid an ongoing staff shakeup. Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort resigned Friday following revelations about his work for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. In a statement, Trump praised Manafort’s work on the campaign and called him a “true professional.” [snip]

In East Baton Rouge Parish, Friday, Trump’s motorcade drove through hard-hit communities, where ripped up carpet and flooring, furniture and the entire contents of homes were piled on the curb. People who were still mucking out their homes, in some instances, came out to wave at the motorcade with gloved hands dirty from their house-gutting work. He and Pence then met a group of volunteers at a Baptist church who have been cooking meals for flood victims and helping the elderly gut their homes.

“Thank you for coming, Mr. Trump,” one woman screamed.

“We knew you would be here for us!” another shouted.

We’ll discuss all this good news in Part II.

As millions suffer, Barack Obama is still golfing in playground for the wealthy, Martha’s Vineyard. Choom Gang leader Barack also gave his daughter advice based on personal experience on how to pack a doobie, avoid arrest when police break up a pot party, and not let pictures be taken when you shake your bare ass and take a toke.

———————————————————

Two speeches, two hires, that shook the world. Have no doubt, we witness a stupendous series of moves by Donald Trump this past week.

The remaining question about Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign is answered. The fury from the political establishment will be enormous.

What was the “remaining question about Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign”? It was the “pivot” question. Whether Trump would bow to the establishment and become a conventional candidate in a conventional campaign that in our opinion would lead to a conventional loss. That question has been answered in a series of power punches.

Today Trump hired a woman to be his campaign manager, pollster Kellyanne Conway, and from Breitbart, Steve Bannon to be the campaign CEO. These hires indicate the Trump campaign will now let Trump be Trump. From our campaign experience we have many suggestions as to what the next steps should be for the two new hires, but this is not the place to make these suggestions. What does matter is that both
these new hires want to fight. Trump to wants to fight.

In a sense what has happened is that Donald J. Trump has been beaten to a pulp by reality. The reality always has been that Donald J. Trump is the burning fire that devours the political establishment and brings about a new politics. For a while there the question lingered about whether Trump would embrace reality or continue to try to appease his political enemies and preserve the old order. Today, beyond dispute, Trump embraces reality.

What is that reality in toto? We understand the critique from those that want Trump to win (and those that want Trump to lose) that Trump should devote himself to raising money then spend money on ads, Trump should give carefully crafted regurgitation speeches that force him to “stay on message”, Trump should not be “distracted”, Trump should run as the head of the political party, Trump should cut his balls off in order to win because only a neutered dull candidate can win the general election. We understand that critique but we reject it.

Why do we reject that critique? First of all we remember 2008. We learned in that campaign that BIG MEDIA IS THE ENEMY. We coined the phrase “Big Media” and explained the usage during the 2008 campaign. We were very happy to see Donald J. Trump use the phrase “Big Media” in his speech Tuesday night.

The “stay on message” critique against Trump is foolish because no matter what Trump says he will be attacked. If Trump says “it’s a lovely day” Big Media will point out a flood or disaster somewhere in the world and thereby denounce Trump as cruel or evil or even, as in 2008, “racist”.

If Trump stays “on message” and says I want to do “this”, Big Media along with the #NeverTrump loons and the Obama Dimocrat authoritarians will attack. If Trump says “on message” and says little but pablum rhetoric, the same creeps will denounce Trump as “without substance”. If Trump walks on water, Big Media, the #NeverTrump loons, and the Obama Dimocrat creeps will say “Trump can’t swim”.

Donald J. Trump will not win with appeasement as his policy. Donald J. Trump will win if he embraces reality and remains the voice of those that demand CHANGE!!! The “change” will only come to fruition with the destruction of the old order in the Republican Party, the destruction of the Obama Dimocrat Party, and the destruction of Big Media.

With his new hires Trump has embraced reality. The proof is that astounding speech on Tuesday night in riot torn Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


The first astounding speech punched like a powerhouse boxer from Donald J. Trump, about Muslim terrorism and foreign policy, was a masterpiece we discussed previously. The foreign policy Trump speech is a massive call for CHANGE and traps Hillary Clinton into a hellhole with Bush era neocons.



On Tuesday night, Donald Trump delivered his domestic policy punch. It’s a magnificent speech as the transcript attests. In Part II of this article we will examine further some of the ramifications of the speech. For now, we will excerpt highlights. The speech starts with a strong analysis of the black community and the need for law and order as benefits to the poor:

We are at a decisive moment in this election.

Last week, I laid out my plan to bring jobs back to our country. Yesterday, I laid out my plan to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism. Tonight, I am going to talk about how to make our communities safe again from crime and lawlessness.

Let me begin by thanking the law enforcement officers here in this city, and across this country, for their service and sacrifice in difficult times.

The violence, riots and destruction that have taken place in Milwaukee is an assault on the right of all citizens to live in security and peace.

Law and order must be restored. It must be restored for the sake of all, but most especially the sake of those living in the affected communities.

The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods. It is their jobs, their homes, their schools and communities which will suffer as a result.

There is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct. Crime and violence is an attack on the poor, and will never be accepted in a Trump Administration.

The narrative that has been pushed aggressively for years now by our current Administration, and pushed by my opponent Hillary Clinton, is a false one. The problem in our poorest communities is not that there are too many police, the problem is that there are not enough police.

More law enforcement, more community engagement, more effective policing is what our country needs.

Just like Hillary Clinton is against the miners, she is against the police. You know it, and I know it.

Those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society – a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent – share directly in the responsibility for the unrest in Milwaukee, and many other places within our country.

They have fostered the dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America.

Everytime we rush to judgment with false facts and narratives – whether in Ferguson or in Baltimore – and foment further unrest, we do a direct disservice to poor African-American residents who are hurt by the high crime in their communities.

During the last 72 hours, while protestors have raged against the police here in Milwaukee, another 9 were killed in Chicago and another 46 were wounded. More than 2,600 people have been shot in Chicago since the beginning of the year, and almost 4,000 killed in President Obama’s hometown area since his presidency began.

How are we serving these American victims by attacking law enforcement officers?

The war on our police must end. It must end now.

The war on our police is a war on all peaceful citizens who want to be able to work and live and send their kids to school in safety.

Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, the violent disruptor. Our job is to make life more comfortable for the African-American parent who wants their kids to be able to safely walk the streets. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school.

For every one violent protestor, there are a hundred moms and dads and kids on that same city block who just want to be able to sleep safely at night. My opponent would rather protect the offender than the victim.

Hillary Clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today, and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime, and lost opportunities.

In that section Trump acknowledges reality and declares war on the established order which ordains that criminals be turned into heroes even as decent citizens, especially decent citizens in poor or black neighborhoods, be imprisoned in the homes so the criminals can be free to terrorize and oppress.

Donald J. Trump then turned his attention to Hillary Clinton Obama Third Term policies as well as other culprits of the old order responsible for the depraved conditions certain American citizens are forced to endure by political correctness and tolerance for criminal society:

Imagine how many lives could have been saved, all across this country, if Democratic politicians hadn’t blocked in their cities what Rudy did in New York City? I’ll make sure we deliver safe neighborhoods here in Milwaukee, and all across this country.

It’s easy for Hillary Clinton to turn a blind eye to crime when she has her own private security force. I believe all Americans, not just the powerful, are entitled to security.

Hillary Clinton has had her chance. She failed. Now it’s time for new leadership.

The Hillary Clinton agenda hurts poor people the most.

There is no compassion in allowing drug dealers, gang members, and felons to prey on innocent people. It is the first duty of government to keep the innocent safe, and when I am President I will fight for the safety of every American – and especially those Americans who have not known safety for a very, very long time.

I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future.

It is time for our society to address some honest and very difficult truths.

The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community. Democratic crime policies, education policies, and economic policies have produced only more crime, more broken homes, and more poverty.

Let us look at the situation right here in Milwaukee, a city run by Democrats for decade after decade. [snip]

1 in 5 manufacturing jobs has disappeared in Milwaukee since we fully opened our markets to China, and many African-American neighborhoods have borne the brunt of this hit.

To every voter in Milwaukee, to every voter living in every inner city, or every forgotten stretch of our society, I am running to offer you a better future.

The Democratic Party has taken the votes of African-Americans for granted. They’ve just assumed they’ll get your support and done nothing in return for it. It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes, and it’s time to rebuild the inner cities of America – and to reject the failed leadership of a rigged political system.

I’m not part of the corrupt system. In fact, the corrupt system is trying to stop me. I’ve been paying my own way. The voters in the Republican Party this year defied the donors, the consultants, the power brokers, and choose a nominee from outside our failed and corrupt and broken system.

Again, the above is astounding. Donald J. Trump is a “nominee from outside our failed and corrupt and broken system” and he beat the Republican establishment. Trump then asks black Americans to join him in the battle to destroy the entire political establishment that degrades us all. Trump then becomes a Pillar of Fire leading black America out of bondage:

I am running to listen to your voice, to hear your cries for help. The quiet voices in our society, not the loudest demonstrators, need to have their demands heard.

Jobs. Safety. Opportunity. Fair and equal representation.

We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. She doesn’t care at all about the hurting people of this country, or the suffering she has caused them.

The African-American community has been taken for granted for decades by the Democratic Party. It’s time to break with the failures of the past – I want to offer Americans a new future.

It is time for rule by the people, not rule by special interests.

Every insider, getting rich off of our broken system, is throwing money at Hillary Clinton. The hedge fund managers, the Wall Street investors, the professional political class.

It’s the powerful protecting the powerful.

Insiders fighting for insiders.

I am fighting for you.

The only thing missing is Donald J. Trump shouting “Power to the People” and the black power salute. But it is not just black Americans who suffer and who Donald J. Trump promises to protect. Trump elevates his critique of the old established order to the high places:

When we talk about the insider, who are we talking about? It’s the comfortable politicians looking out for their own interests. It’s the lobbyists who know how to insert that perfect loophole into every bill. It’s the financial industry that knows how to regulate their competition out of existence. The insiders also include the media executives, anchors and journalists in Washington, Los Angeles, and New York City, who are part of the same failed status quo and want nothing to change.

Every day you pick up a newspaper, or turn on the nightly news, and you hear about some self-interest banker or some discredited Washington insider says they oppose our campaign. Or some encrusted old politician says they oppose our campaign. Or some big time lobbyist says they oppose our campaign.

I wear their opposition as a badge of honor. Because it means I am fighting for REAL change, not just partisan change. I am fighting – all of us across the country are fighting – for peaceful regime change in our own country. The media-donor-political complex that’s bled this country dry has to be replaced with a new government of, by and for the people.

The leadership class in Washington D.C., of which Hillary Clinton has been a member for thirty years, has abandoned the people of this country.

I am going to give the people their voice back.

This is an astounding revolutionary tub-thumper of a speech. “Power to the People!” Notice how Trump does not distinguish between Republicans, Democrats, Obama Dimocrats, Hillary, McConnell, Ryan. Trump denounces “The leadership class in Washington D.C.”, the entire rotted, rotten, rotting, structure. “Power to the People!” It’s the political establishment Trump promises to tear down:

Think about it. The people opposing our campaign are the same people who have left our border open and let innocent people suffer as a result.

The people opposing our campaign are the same people who have led us into one disastrous foreign war after another.

The people opposing our campaign are the same people who lied to us about one trade deal after another.

Aren’t you tired of a system that gets rich at your expense?

Aren’t you tired of big media, big businesses, and big donors rigging the system to keep your voice from being heard?

Are you ready for change?

Are you ready for leadership that puts you, the American people, first? That puts your country first? That puts your family first?

You had us at “big media” big guy. Trump understands Big Media is the enemy. The Big Media Political Party is the enemy as we wrote in 2007 – Trump understands that.

We don’t use the term “mainstream media” or “lamestream media” for a very real set of reasons. Big Media sees itself as a political party that makes or breaks candidates. In 2008 Big Media was all in for Barack Obama against Hillary Clinton and John McCain. In 2012 Big Media was all in for Barack Obama against hapless Mitt Romney. In 2016, what goes around comes around (that’s a warning to Hillary2016) and Hillary Clinton is the Big Media Party favor because she is on the Obama leash, caged.

Another aspect of Big Media and why we reject the advice for Trump to run a “conventional” campaign is MONEY. Big Media hates Trump because he is not like the boob Barack Obama. But don’t rule out self interest either. At this point in a campaign Big Media expected profits from Donald J. Trump in the hundreds of millions of dollars. We’re not talking about increased revenues from the higher ratings Trump continues to bring. We’re talking dollars, dollars, dollars!

Big Media expected the Republican nominee to spend hundreds of millions of dollars in ads. Donald Trump has not done that. So Big Media is angry. Big Media wanted Trump to waste his money on ads no one cares to watch. Instead Big Media sees Donald J. Trump using Big Media as his cat’s paw, beating Big Media incessantly – to bolster himself – but not giving Big Media the hundreds of millions of dollars in ad revenue they expected. Sure, Donald J. Trump will soon begin to air ads, on his own time in his own interest in states such as Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. But Big Media wanted that cash and much more. Like small time hoods Big Media expects money to grease their palms. So Big Media attacks Donald J. Trump as an ideological enemy and as someone who refuses to fill their coffers.

Donald J. Trump is the revolutionary Pillar of Fire which consumes Big Media and the exhausted established order. In Part II, we will discuss the Workers’ Party and how to “rope-a-dope”.
