Considering the amount of ridiculous articles the MSM has written over the past couple of years, it’s honestly surprising for an MSM source (The New York Times) to write something like this.
According to The New York Times: “support for the [tax] law has grown significantly over the past month, and more Americans believe that they will receive a tax cut. Forty-six percent of Americans strongly or somewhat approved of the law in early January, up from 37 percent when the bill was nearing passage in December. At the same time, falling unemployment, accelerating economic growth and a surging stock market have made Americans increasingly positive about both their own finances and the overall economy.”
Gotta say, I never expected a Mainstream Media source to actually write something truthful, or even acknowledge the surging economy under Trump.
Frankly, that’s merely one of the reasons people like the tax cut. Individually, of course people want to keep more of their hard-earned money. But in terms of overall prospects for the future of the economy, people are seeing unemployment numbers plummeting and more jobs being created.
Even Apple has announced that, due to the tax cuts, they “will bring hundreds of billions of overseas dollars back to the U.S., pay about $38 billion in taxes on the money and invest tens of billions on domestic jobs, manufacturing and data centers in the coming years,” according to Fortune.
Not to mention that, according to an article written on January 14th by the Washington Examiner: “A list of 40 firms offering millions of employees bonuses and customers fee cuts has surged to 164 in just 10 days as the likely financial benefit of President Trump’s tax reform.”
“Jet Blue… is offering a $1000 bonus to 21,000 employees,” said the article. “Some companies are offering bonuses up to $3000 increases in 401k contributions and wage hikes.”
And let’s not forget that Walmart (and other companies) are raising their minimum wage thanks to the tax cuts.
It’s really no surprise, then, that more and more Americans are more supportive of the tax bill, which House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed would be “the end of the world.”
It’s not the end of the world. It’s the end of the Democrat Party’s chances to retake Congress in 2018.
Honestly, all Republican candidates would have to do is remind people that the Democrats didn’t want them to keep more of their money. That the Democrats didn’t want jobs returning to the country. That nothing like this ever happened while Obama was President. That nothing like this would ever happen with Democrats at the helm.
Add that to the fact that Democrats really don’t have any actual agenda other than “we hate Trump”, then I really wouldn’t be too surprised if they lost MORE seats rather than gain more. Of course, that all depends on the Republicans and the candidates. But the 2018 midterms really is the Republicans’ to lose. If the economy is doing far better by November of this year, unless the Republican candidate absolutely sucks, I don’t see any Democrat candidate being too successful this coming election.
I mean, considering everything we’ve talked about and adding the fact that black and Hispanic unemployment rates are dropping like flies, along with the overall unemployment rate, why would anyone ever vote Democrat again?
Like I said, the Democrats don’t really have an agenda. All they will run on is “we hate Trump and we’ll work to impeach him”. Well, if Trump is fulfilling his promise to Make America Great Again at least economically (he’s also doing that in other aspects, but we’ll stick with economics), then why would people want to vote for people who don’t want Trump in office?
Not a single Democrat voted to pass the tax bill that is helping millions of employees get bonuses and helping Americans across the country to keep more of their money. Not one Democrat thought that companies would be more willing to invest more of their money in the U.S. economy. Not one Democrat wanted more jobs coming into the country. Not one.
So why would anyone want them back in power? Even from a liberal’s point of view, I would be able to see that the economy is doing far better than anyone expected. I would be able to see that Trump and the GOP have helped us keep more of the money we earn and helped people who are struggling to find a job to actually get a job.
That’s precisely why even The New York Times of all people have to acknowledge that more Americans are happier with the bill than before it passed. That’s something we conservatives saw coming.
While the Democrats can try all they want to say that this bill is actual “Armageddon”, people will notice a difference in their bank accounts and their paychecks. And they will realize just where this extra money is coming from. They will realize what has helped the unemployed to become employed. They will realize that lower taxes is a good thing for everyone, including the government in the long-term.
And they will realize that Democrats aren’t the ones who want to lower taxes. Quite the opposite, in fact, they want to increase your taxes by trying to sell you on the ridiculous idea that if the government gets more money, more good things will happen and it will be able to help more people. They try to sell you the idea that higher taxes are a good thing, when everything including economics and logic tells you differently.
If Republicans run on this economic point at least, I doubt many Democrats will be successful in 2018.
Regardless that’s a matter to be discussed in the future. For now, we’ll delight in the fact that the American economy is doing fantastic and the future looks bright.

Earlier this week, President Trump went through a physical and mental fitness test performed by White House Doctor Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was also Obama’s and Bush’s doctor while they were presidents.
Reporting on the president’s health, Dr. Jackson praised Trump’s overall health, saying it was very good for someone his age. “It is called genetics,” said Dr. Jackson. “I don’t know. Some people have great genes… he has incredible genes and that’s the way God made him.”
The doctor suggested to Trump that he lose 10-15 pounds through diet and exercise, to which the President agreed. “He is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we’re going to do both,” Dr. Jackson said.
Overall, Dr. Jackson thinks Trump is “fit for duty… I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even the remainder of another term if he is elected.”
No doubt this further cements the frown on the Left’s faces, but that’s just the physical. Even if Trump is physically fit for his age, they’re still hoping he bombed the mental test… which he didn’t.
In fact, he scored perfectly in the mental acuity test (30 for 30). Oh boy, it seems the Left has lost yet another card for them to use against Trump.
Remember how one of the biggest, if not the biggest, arguments made against Trump during the election was that he was “unfit for office”? How he was “mentally unstable” and showed signs that he had dementia and/or Alzheimer’s? Well, it seems the President has a perfectly sound mind.
Not that this will really matter to the Left. It’s not about facts, you see. It’s about narratives. About how they feel and what they think. They think and feel that he is mentally unstable and will wholeheartedly believe it to be true despite facts. If that in itself is not mental instability, I don’t know what is.
They will believe everything they report about him. If they honestly believe he did hire a couple of prostitutes to urinate on a bed the Obamas slept on, they will believe anything about him. If they could, they would even report that Trump is an alien from outer space who’s here to turn this country into a dictatorship.
Heck, even Jeff Snowflake might believe Trump to be the reincarnation of Stalin with his comparisons to the socialist serial murderer.
While they have been claiming and shouting at the top of their lungs that Trump is mentally unfit, they themselves have shown to be mentally unstable. We like to call it “Trump Derangement Syndrome”. This has been in effect ever since Trump defeated Hillary.
The entire Left suffers from this. They believe everything bad that happens is Trump’s fault (just look at Jamie Lee Curtis blaming Trump for the false alarm in Hawaii) and believe nothing good that happens is thanks to Trump. They insanely believe and give credit to Obama for the economy doing so well.
They believe Trump colluded with Russia despite a year-long investigation that has yielded not a single shred of evidence. They believe his attacks against the media are unnecessary and he’s only doing it because he’s a “bully”.
That’s like pushing back against a school-yard bully and he sits there astonished, believing you pushed back against him for no good reason. The media really can’t take any hits well whatsoever and believe any attacks against them to be attacks against the first amendment.
News flash, MSM, YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFAME PEOPLE! You can say whatever you want about them, think whatever you want, but you can’t pass off what you believe about someone as being the truth.
But that won’t stop them. Nothing short of a straitjacket will stop them. They will continue to believe what they believe about Trump. Continue to report what they believe about him as being factual and continue to use untrustworthy sources to defame Trump at every chance they get.
What they’re doing is not journalism, it’s propaganda. Jeff Flake comparing Trump to Stalin highlights just how unhinged and out of his mind the weenie Senator is. And he even dares say that the media are the ones telling the truth? Now THAT is actual insanity.
The truth is that Trump is perfectly mentally sound and over the end of 2016, all of 2017, and this early part of 2018, the Left, the Mainstream Media and the Washington Establishment have been losing all of their marbles.
They go insane over how Trump is as popular as he is. They go insane over how Trump is as successful as he is. They go insane over the mere fact that Trump ISN’T insane.
And we haven’t even reached half of his first term. I’m kind of worried about what their collective mental health will be if and when he gets reelected. I don’t think there are enough mental asylums in the world to contain these lunatics.
They will wholeheartedly believe that Dr. Jackson is either lying under orders of Trump or is simply wrong. CNN already had Dr. Sanjay Gupta diagnose Trump with heart-disease despite having never examined him and going off of a single score from the medical report (coronary calcium score).
But Dr. Jackson, having actually examined the President, was convinced that despite that score, “his cardiac health is excellent… He doesn’t have, really, a family history of premature cardiac disease, he doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t have diabetes… I think those things, in combination with the excellent cardiac results that we got from the exercise stress test, I think, are very reassuring.”
And when asked directly about heart disease, the doctor said: “No, he does not have heart disease… technically, he has nonclinical atherosclerotic coronary – coronary atherosclerosis… He had a coronary calcium score done in 2009. It was 34. He had a coronary calcium score done in 2013 that was 98. And then we did get a calcium score from this one… it was 133. So I had a long conversation with the cardiologist (one from Walter Reed and another from the Cleveland Clinic) and everyone saw that as reassuring that he’s gone this period of time and he’s had that much – or that little of a change in his coronary calcium load. So that I think, overall, his coronary calcium score is very reassuring and goes along with the rest of his cardiac workup.”
In short, the doctor that actually examined the President informs us that Trump doesn’t have heart-disease. But that clearly didn’t stop Dr. Gupta from saying Trump does have heart-disease based off of the coronary calcium score. CNN was clearly looking for any confirmation that Trump was unfit for office in any way, be it physical or mental.
Clearly, he’s mentally fit for duty, so they had to go with physical health. They were searching for anything that could fit into their narrative and had to dig deep into the barrel of b.s. to get anything remotely close to solid… which they failed to do.
They were looking for evidence of mental or physical unfitness and they found nothing. They’ve been looking for evidence of collusion for over a year and have found nothing. They’ve been pushing for these narratives that have proven to be false or at least that haven’t been proven right.
Not that this will stop them. As long as they can convince even one person that he’s insane, they will run with that narrative.
Truly, it will only be insane people that believe he’s insane.

“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
Author: Freddie Drake Marinelli.
I recall having ended my last article with a little reminder of who Democrats are: racists. And that extends to being racist against white people. And in case any of you didn’t know: yes, it’s possible to be racist against white people.
While Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world where his children and his African-American brethren may be judged not on the color of their skin but rather on the content of their character, Chelsea Handler dreams a different dream. A world where people are judged very much so on the color of their skin,
Here’s what the lunatic tweeted: “Happy Martin Luther King day to a true hero. This day means more today than it ever has. We all must honor the spirit of his fairness and equality and tireless search for justice. It is up to white people to honor Dr King, and to think about what it must be like to not be white.”
Chelsea is in the lead for the “single stupidest tweet of 2018” award.
I can just picture Dr. King rolling over in his grave at this racist tweet. Chelsea, it’s not up to white people to honor Dr. King. It’s up to EVERYONE WHO WISHES FOR EQUALITY OF PEOPLE to honor him. His message was against judging people over the color of their skin. A point that Chelsea horrendously misses.
To address the last part of the tweet: I’m Hispanic and I feel pretty white. If being white means having a nice house, a decent job and living comfortably, then I feel pretty white. I don’t feel like a “typical” Hispanic. To Chelsea, a Hispanic typically is cleaning some rich folks’ toilets, mowing the lawn or doing any sort of medial housework for inhumanely low wages.
To Chelsea, a “typical” black person is someone who lives in the ghetto (a concept originated by the Nazis to “ghettoize” the Jews), is part of a gang, is having children at 16 if she chooses to keep the children and lives off of welfare.
To Chelsea, a “typical” Asian person is someone who is good at math, eats rice, is good in school and is an engineer working in Silicon Valley.
If “not being white” means being stereotyped as doing or being anything described above, that’s a horrible statement to make. The way I see things, a Hispanic can “live like a white person” if living like a white person means living in comfort. A black person can live that way. An Asian person can live that way.
You see, the point is that YOUR SKIN COLOR DOESN’T MATTER WHATSOEVER! You’d think I wouldn’t have to say that, but Democrats are so fixated on the color of people’s skin that they don’t care that they’re being the opposite of progressive.
If anyone is thinking backwards, it’s the Democrat Party and its advocates like this moron.
Thankfully, other Twitter users were quick to point out the hypocrisy and outright racism of her statement.
“OUT: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. IN: White people are bad,” said one user.
“’I have a dream one day that people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ When you talk about whiteness, clearly you have failed to see this dream through, Chelsea,” said another user.
And my personal favorite: “Every time I read your posts, I think what it must be like to not be sane.”
I doubt Chelsea has the mental capability of recognizing the racism of her words, so I doubt she will think that these people are right. For that matter, I doubt many Democrats will think these people are right.
So many things that you see today are all about race. Harvard worries about their “diversity” in campus rather than getting the best students they can get. Democrats attack Trump for not “diversifying” his cabinet rather than think he’s getting the best possible candidate at each position that he can find.
The Left calls white people racist on a mere whim even if nothing remotely close to racism is ever said. They believe white people are horrible, should recompense black people with “reparations” and will go as far as to say that white people should die. And I’ll remind you, it’s white Democrats who are typically the ones who hate white people the most, as you can see here.
Chelsea HATES white people, though she’s white herself. But she excuses her whiteness by being “woke”, an honest-to-God idiotic term to support the Black Lives Matter movement (which coincidentally also goes against Dr. King’s wishes). Being “woke” is their excuse for being racist against white people while being white themselves. It’s their excuse for “living like a white person”.
Just as Bernie Sanders is excused for living like a capitalist by preaching socialism. Just like any Democrat is excused for being rich by pushing for higher taxes on the rich. Just like Antifa is excused for using fascist tactics of violence by claiming to be against fascism.
There is no bigger hypocritical entity in the universe than the Democrat Party. No greater racist entity. They were racist against people of color since Andrew Jackson founded the Party and continue to be racist against people to this day. Being racist against white people is just as bad as being racist against black people.
But the Democrat Party is so blinded by their hatred and racism that they fail to see that. They see defending anyone who’s white as being a “white supremacist” and “Nazi”. They don’t understand the meaning of racism.
If you’re against someone simply because of their skin color, that’s racism. If you’re against someone because of anything else, that’s not racism.
The Left would often brand people racist if they were against Obama. If those people were against him because Obama was black, then yes, they were racist. But if they were against Obama because of his policies and ideologies, then that’s not racist. The very fact that they would attack people with that was inherently racist.
All that argument made was that people should support Obama, if for nothing else, because he was black. Anyone who voted for him just because he was black is just as racist as anyone who voted against him just because he was black. Likewise, anyone who voted for Hillary just because she’s a woman is just as sexist as someone who voted against her just because she’s a woman.
I’ve made that point before, but I felt it was necessary to reiterate it since the Left has seemingly gotten dumber since the last time I said that.
So for Chelsea to say something like that exposes her true nature: that of a racist. Being racist isn’t just about discriminating against black people. Anyone who thinks that is, himself, a racist. If someone thinks black people can’t be racist, or Hispanics can’t be racist or any other minority can’t be racist simply because they’re a minority, they themselves are racist.
And that perfectly describes the Left. They make faux claims of not being racist while at the same time showing the world that that’s precisely what they are.
This is why I said racism flows through their veins. They can’t escape it historically. And certainly not ideologically. For all their talks about being “progressive” they are among the world’s most backwards-thinking group of people.

After last week’s reported comments about immigration and bringing people in from “s**thole” countries, the Left and the media have all gone into a frenzy to call Trump a racist. But there are plenty of people who don’t believe what he said was racist or that he is racist in general. And that includes Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s niece.
In an interview with Breitbart, Dr. Alveda King said: “I agree that President Trump is not a racist. He has done so much… Just now, [Trump signed] the bill that was sponsored by Congressman John Lewis making the Martin Luther King Jr. historic site in Atlanta a national park – the first park to be named after an African-American man.”
You wouldn’t know about that from watching the fake news media. Had this happened during Obama’s tenure as President, this would be one of the biggest stories out there. “President Obama Signs Historic Bill Into Law, Making MLK Historic Site Into National Park – Marking This To Be The First Park To Be Named After African-American,” is what the headlines would say.
But what do the headlines read today? From CNN: “Why focusing on ‘s**thole* (and no, they didn’t censor it) totally misses the point – Trump’s sentiment toward nations populated by people of color is much more important than his word choice.”
From The Washington Post: “Trump says ‘I’m not a racist,’ accuses Democrats of impeding DACA deal.”
From the New York Times: “Donald Trump’s Racism: The Definitive List.”
All the media outlets are focusing on Trump’s reported remarks. None have mentioned this bill. None have mentioned the falling unemployment rate for Blacks and how it's the lowest since the 1970s, when such a statistic was first recorded. And when it comes to the tax cuts that help everyone, the Left MOCKS the “chump change” businesses like Walmart give their employees.
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic," Nancy Pelosi said about businesses giving their employees thousand-dollar bonuses.
Well, I don’t expect someone with a $30 million net worth to value a couple of extra thousand dollars. But to these employees, that’s a MASSIVE bonus. Some are even raising the minimum wage they give their employees to $15 an hour.
THAT is how you raise the minimum wage. Not through forcing it on businesses but through helping businesses grow and the businesses WILLINGLY raising the wages of their employees.
What’s so wrong with corporate America getting a big bonus if it helps a lot of people? What kind of jealous, evil person do you have to be to despise that? Short answer: a Democrat.
Returning to Dr. King, she continues with: “And there’s all other kind of legislation and things that President Trump is passing, including getting a lot of black folks out of jail – he’s working on doing that, believe it or not, and putting them back to work. And putting America back to work – African-Americans especially because our job rate or our hiring rate was so low and it’s going up along with everybody else’s rate. So President Trump is not a racist. He cares about America period. And he said, ‘No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.’ So he sees black people, all people as people. He sees Americans as the people he is supposed to serve and he’s doing that. And he is not a racist. I just really want to say that.”
While Obama saw the American people as his subjects, given his “Emperor of America” remarks, Trump sees the American people as his boss. He knows we put him there and he knows what we want to see him do.
Breitbart then went on to write: “King, who has been increasingly active in conservative politics and reportedly voted for Trump in his presidential campaign, backed him up by saying, ‘[Trump] cares about this country. He cares about the plight of everybody who’s been under-served, mis-served, mistreated, and he’s equalizing that. And he means that and I believe him, I really do.’”
As part of being increasingly active in conservative politics, she had been battling Facebook over a pro-life documentary about Roe v. Wade, which Facebook had been “taking it down, not letting the paid ads go forth and all that,” according to Dr. King.
Thankfully, Breitbart informs us that: “Facebook later yielded to pressure and allowed the team to crowdfund.”
I’m certainly happy to hear such good news.
But returning to the topic at hand, it’s truly significant for Dr. Alveda King to back up President Trump when it comes to the claims that he’s racist. Claims which had been made since the very day he announced he would run for President.
Upon his candidacy announcement, Trump talked about Mexicans crossing the border bringing crime, drugs, rapists and all kinds of bad people into the country. Despite being right, the media branded him a racist immediately, though at the time, they weren’t really taking Trump as a serious candidate either. But the point is that they’ve been calling Trump a racist since the day he ANNOUNCED his candidacy.
It didn’t work back then. It didn’t work when he became a serious threat to Hillary (even if they still didn’t think he’d come close to winning). It didn’t work on Election Day. And it hasn’t worked any day they’ve tried.
I think the Left might be running out of plays to use out of their playbook if they’re circling back to racism. Racism which is being heavily rebutted by the very actions he’s partaken and the people behind him, including a Hispanic millennial (yours truly) and Dr. Alveda King.
If you want to find evidence of racism within anyone, search almost anyone within the Democrat Party. Obama was a terrible president for everyone, but even more so for people of his own race.
Dick Durbin is making ridiculous and, frankly, racist claims that the term “chain migration” is racist towards black people because “they came to the country in chains.” Yes, claiming something is racist for a specific race when it’s not is racism in itself.
Responding to Teddy Roosevelt’s dinner with Booker T. Washington in 1901, Democrat Senator James Vardaman said: “I’m just as opposed to Booker T. Washington with all his Anglo-Saxon reinforcements as I am to the coconut-headed, chocolate-colored typical little coon Andy Dotson who blacks my shoes every morning.” Democrat Senator Benjamin Tillman added: “Now that Roosevelt has eaten with that n****r in Washington, we shall have to kill a thousand n****rs to get them back to their place.”
I’m not done.
Democrat Senator Theodore Bilbo during one of FDR’s reelection campaigns, said: “White people will be justified in going to any extreme to keep the n****r from voting. You do it the night before the election. I don’t have to tell you any more than that. Red-blooded men know what I mean.”
Here’s a quote from Democrat Robert Byrd (from when he was a soldier fighting in WWII) about fighting alongside black people: “I am loyal to my country and know but reverence to her flag BUT I shall never submit to fight beneath that banner with a negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see this old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimens from the wilds.”
It’s not just elected Democrats that have proven to be racists. Early twentieth century Democrat advocates also wrote racist books. Charles Carroll wrote a book titled: “The Negro a Beast” (1900). Robert Shufeldt: “The Negro: A Menace to American Civilization” (1907) as well as: “America’s Greatest Problem: The Negro” (1915). Charles Harvey McCord: “The American Negro as a Dependent, Defective and Delinquent” (1914).
I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point and I don’t want to make this article too long.
To reiterate my point: if you want to find evidence of racism within anyone, search almost anyone within the Democrat Party.
It’s truly a joke for any Democrat to call anyone a racist. Racism, bigotry and hatred courses through their veins.

WARNING, THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MATERIAL NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER AUDIENCES.
On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Trump made a very outrageous comment about countries like Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. The Post reports that unnamed sources – specifically, “several people briefed on the meeting”, aka people who weren’t even there – informed the Post that President Trump asked: “Why are we having all these people from s**thole countries come here?”
The President denies that he used such a derogatory term to describe these countries, saying: “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
And in classic Trump fashion, he managed to turn it around on the Democrats by saying: “The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process…”
And while ignorant Leftists come to the defense of Haiti and the aforementioned countries, they manage to, in a sense, destroy a liberal argument: “these immigrants should be here because the countries they come from are very bad and dangerous.”
Stephen Colbert defended these countries by saying “They’re not s**hole countries… Donald Trump isn’t their president.” Insinuating that the United States is a s**thole because Trump IS our president.
If they indeed are not s**holes, then it should be ok to send these people back, right? Why would anyone be opposed to sending these great people back home if those countries are far better than ours? Shouldn’t we be merciful and compassionate people and help these immigrants return home?
Whether or not Trump used that word to describe these countries hardly matters. The meaning behind the reported comment is truthful: these countries are horrible.
According to World Atlas, Colombia is the 7th most dangerous country in the world. Sudan is 6th, Nigeria 5th, Congo 2nd and the Central African Republic is the most dangerous country in the world.
According to the UK Independent, Jamaica is the 18th most dangerous country in the world. South Africa immediately follows it at number 17, Guatemala at 16, Chad at 15, Mali at 13, Honduras at 9, Kenya at 8, Egypt at 7, Venezuela (Bernie’s favorite country) at 6, Nigeria at 5, El Salvador (well, look at that) at 3 and Colombia at number 1.
Many other sources often name the same countries, albeit in a different position. HIV/AIDS cases are the worst in many of these countries but that’s just one of their many problems.
If you don’t think those countries are s**holes, you don’t have a functioning brain.
Meanwhile, Trump is also reported to have insisted we take more immigrants from places like Norway. According to World Atlas, Norway ranks 14th among the world’s SAFEST countries.
Now, even though Trump says that he never said anything derogatory about those countries, the comment was still not racist in any way.
He reportedly said the COUNTRIES are s**holes, not the people. And the stats do indeed show that the countries are, in fact, s**holes.
It makes no sense to defend them because to defend them means to lie about them. But the funny thing is that they’re only now defending them simply because of what Trump reportedly said.
Jason Cone, USA executive director of Doctors Without Borders, said earlier this week: “The US is sending Salvadorans back to one of the most violent places in the world, and putting them at risk of death”.
If a country is considered one of the most violent places on Earth and puts its own people at risk of death by just being there, then it’s a s**hole country.
If a country is totalitarian and its people often try to escape via raft (I’m, of course, talking about Cuba), then that’s a s**hole country.
If a country is so poor that its people are forced to eat their own pets just so they don’t starve to death, then it’s a s**hole country.
Truth be told, most other countries on Earth are total s**holes. And unfortunately, some countries are beginning to turn into s**holes themselves. The massive refugee “crisis” threatens to turn the U.K, Germany, France and other European countries (or really any country that takes in these “refugees”) into Muslim s**holes. And yes, many Muslim countries are among the most dangerous countries in the world in the very sources I used earlier in the article.
I didn’t want to have to use that bad word so much, but even CNN is unapologetic about using the word. One host even wrote the word to describe who Trump is. He even attacks the President for reportedly having used the word.
Funny how he forgets that Joe Biden once said that Obamacare was a “big f**ing deal”. The Democrats even sold a t-shirt with the abbreviation for that description: “Health Reform is a BFD”.
It’s also funny how he forgets Dick Cheney once told Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy to “go f**k yourself.”
Or that Barack Obama used many, and I mean MANY expletives in his book: Dreams From My Father.
No, since it’s Trump, it’s only bad if HE says it. And it’s not even confirmed that he actually said it, at that. Multiple “celebrities” went on twitter to attack the President, many of whom used the very same word to describe him.
Funny how they all think Trump’s a s**hole, but still likely think very highly of Meryl Streep’s “God”: Harvey Weinstein. You can add Hollywood to the list of s**tholes in the world. I won’t throw all of California under that description since it’s really just the coastal cities that are garbage. There were a good number of counties in California that voted for Trump in 2016, so I won’t attack the whole state, even though its Governor is complete Leftist garbage.
Regardless, all of these places are actual s**holes that I would never dream setting foot on. I’ve lived in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. I was too young to properly remember Argentina and Brazil, but I remember Mexico pretty well. While the area I lived in wasn’t a complete s**hole (Mexico City), it is when you compare it to the places I’ve lived in in the States… except maybe Portland, Oregon.
Maybe they’re on par. Although, it’s important to establish that not every single place in those cities is awful. Downtown Portland is a complete garbage-fest (I’ve grown tired of using the same bad word over and over again), but the rest of the city wasn’t really bad. Downtown Portland is where the freaks are, but the rest of the city isn’t too bad. Liberal, sure, but not too bad.
But while I can stand living in such a place, I would never dream of travelling to any of the aforementioned dangerous nations. I might be interested in places like Norway now, but I would never go to South America again, except maybe Chile, the only South American country in World Atlas’ top 25 safest countries on Earth, even though it sits at number 24. Even the U.S. is not on that list, largely due to Obama and the Democrats.
Still, I end with my main point: the countries mentioned in the immigration meeting with lawmakers, with the exception of Norway, are total s**holes.
And even though the MSM won’t feel sorry whatsoever for using the word, I will apologize for using it myself, especially to the extent that I did. Not that I never curse, it’s just that it doesn’t feel right to curse this much.

As you know, once Presidents leave the White House, Presidential library plans begin and new buildings flourish in the location desired by the respective President. George W. Bush’s Presidential library is located in Dallas, Texas. Bill Clinton’s is in Little Rock, Arkansas. Ronald Reagan’s is in Simi Valley, California. It’s really no surprise that Barack Obama’s will be in Chicago, Illinois. Specifically, on the University of Chicago’s campus.
The funny thing is that, according to Campus Reform: “more than 150 University of Chicago professors and lecturers are protesting a ‘socially regressive’ plan to build an ‘Obama Center’ next to the school’s campus.”
I don’t think I’ve ever heard such harsh words spoken by college professors about anything related to Barack Obama. Don’t misunderstand, they still want the Obama Center in Chicago, but they do have concerns about where exactly the former President intends to have it built.
In a letter signed by faculty members, the professors write: “First, there are concerns that the Obama Center as currently planned will not provide the promised development or economic benefits to the neighborhood.”
Gee, Obama failing to deliver on a promise? That’s new.
The letter continues: “Because the current plans place the Center next to the Museum of Science and Industry and across the street from the University of Chicago campus, there is no available adjacent land in which to start a new business, set up a new café or restaurant, [or] bring another cultural center to the neighborhood.”
Putting aside the fact that I’m surprised these college professors care at all about the possibility of a new business starting there, it really seems like the Obama Center will really inconvenience the community in multiple ways. After 8 years of heavily inconveniencing the country (and that’s putting it lightly), he seemingly is looking for smaller ways in which he can inconvenience people he couldn’t care less about.
But the letter is not done. “At a time of increasing complexity and pressure in urban life, Chicago should be dedicated to preserving our public parks as open areas for relaxation and play for all its citizens.” This in particular criticizes the intrusion the Center will have on the neighboring public parks: the Midway Plaisance and Jackson Park.
The professors also criticize plans to construct an above-ground parking garage which takes up some of the space of the parks, protesting that although "public lands are being given away, all the profits from this parking lot will go to the Obama Foundation. None of the funds will go back to the City to improve train lines and public transportation infrastructure. Overall, this is a socially regressive plan.”
According to the Associated Press, the Foundation has opted to drop the plans for the above-ground garage. Instead, it will be underground. And, of course, there will be a parking fee.
The letter makes one final criticism of the Obama Center by saying: “Finally, it is the taxpayers of Chicago who are going to be forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars for this project… The required widening of Lake Shore Drive alone is estimated to be over $100 million.” The entire project is estimated to cost half a billion dollars.
The letter ends by saying: “We are concerned that rather than becoming a bold vision for urban living in the future it will soon become an object-lesson in the mistakes of the past… We would be pleased to support the Obama Center if the plan genuinely promoted economic development in our neighborhoods and respected our precious public urban parks.”
When did any Obama plan genuinely promote any sort of economic development anywhere in the country? We had 8 years of a terrible economy that was on life support. Obama didn’t help the national economy, how could you expect him to help a local economy? How can you expect him to care whatsoever about it?
Of course, these college professors are liberals themselves, so they have certain expectations that Obama isn’t the incarnation of Satan.
Regardless, it fascinates me that even after leaving the White House, Obama can still find ways to screw people, albeit in a far smaller scale. He no longer has Presidential power. He does have power, but not nearly as much as he did before. No doubt that’s a fact that irks him.
Now, the letter only addresses the fact that it will be a massive economic and urban inconvenience. And it is important to establish that. But you also have to look at the very design of the building. Ben Shapiro said that it looks like a Chinese takeout container. To me, it looks like a poorly-designed and borderline-useless candle. It also sort of looks like an ancient Mayan structure.
I’m no architect, but I do have functioning eyes. The Obama Center is an eye-sore. Not only is it economically inconvenient, but it’s honestly rather ugly to look at.
Just another way Obama looks to mess with people he doesn’t care about. And even though the population of Chicago is largely liberal, especially the University of Chicago, I can’t help but feel sorry for them. They made very good points on why it shouldn’t be where it is, but I also feel sorry that it’s something these people will have to look at every time they’re in the area.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that the Obama Foundation will care enough to move the site somewhere more economically advantageous for the city.

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump met with Congressional lawmakers to discuss immigration, DACA and the Wall. During this meeting, the President made some comments that have conservatives worried he might surrender DACA and perhaps the biggest item that got him elected: the Wall at the southern border.
The President said that he’d be willing to sign anything that comes from Congress about immigration, and you can clearly see why that has conservatives and Trump supporters worried.
Conservatives like Mark Levin, Ann Coulter and James Woods have voiced their opinions after the televised meeting.
Mark Levin played a clip of what the President said: “And, Chuck, I will say, when this group comes back – hopefully with an agreement – this group and others from the Senate, from the House, comes back with an agreement, I’m signing it. I mean, I will be signing it. I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, gee, I want this or I want that.’ I’ll be signing it, because I have a lot of confidence in the people in this room that they’re going to come up with something really good.”
Then, Levin voiced his concern: “That’s no Art of the Deal, that’s complete surrender. Now I suspect the President will realize that and try to talk some of that back, but that is very bad.”
Ann Coulter went on a twitter rant about how this will hurt the President, saying: “Trump, flanked by Dems & open-borders GOPS, announces plan for 100% open-ended amnesty (per courts).” “But don’t worry! There will be ‘border security’! (Political euphemism for: You’re not getting a wall.)” “This DACA lovefest confirms a main thesis of Michael Wolff’s book: When Bannon left, liberal Dems Jared, Ivanka, Cohn & Goldman Sachs took over.” “After agreeing with DiFi (Agency for Public Management and eGovernment) that stand-alone DACA will come FIRST, Trump’s muscle memory kicks in & he cites Israel saying NOTHING BUT A WALL WILL WORK.” Finally ending with: “Nothing Michael Wolff could say about Donald Trump has hurt him as much as the DACA lovefest right now.”
And conservative actor James Woods also went on a bit of a rant, saying: “If you fold on immigration, you are a one term president.” “That’s it. If Trump rolls over on DACA, he loses my vote. That is a promise.” “End DACA completely, build the wall, defund sanctuary cities, end chain migration, enforce voter ID, and deport all lawbreakers. Democrats never listened to us when they were in control. Wake up, Republicans. You have the power. Use it, for God’s sake!”
That’s a lot of things to say. Because of that, I won’t break down and analyze every single thing they said, as that would make this article far too long.
Let’s just take the most significant comments from each.
Levin said that this is surrendering to the Democrats on DACA and immigration reform. That may be so on the outset, but I have a little more faith in the President than that. He’s not the idiot the Left and MSM make him out to be. He’s a thinker. A strategist. And most importantly in this case, a negotiator.
Levin mentioned the Art of the Deal, the book Trump wrote. It’s precisely BECAUSE he wrote the Art of the Deal that I trust him to make the best deal he can make on this. He knows a bad deal when he sees it. He’s not going to fold on this issue just so the Democrats and the media will like him. He knows who got him elected. He knows what his supporters want.
None of us want DACA. None of us want chain migration. None of us want open borders. We want an end to DACA, an end to chain migration, to that stupid lottery system and most of all, WE WANT A WALL!
But you have to remember, Trump himself is the very person who brought up the Wall. That’s been his biggest promise that Congress hasn’t allowed him to fulfill. While many of the other promises he’s fulfilled or is in the process of fulfilling (stronger economy, bringing back jobs, defeating ISIS), promises like the Wall are beyond the executive branch and for good reason.
While I believe many of the things he says on many issues, I don’t believe that he will simply sign anything that’s brought to his desk. That would guarantee that he becomes a one-term president, as Woods said. Again, he’s not dumb.
Next, we have Ann Coulter. She has had a history of making very explosive tweets in the past. Back in September of 2017, we were in a similar position. Trump had seemingly softened on DACA and conservatives, particularly Ann, exploded over his comments. If you remember, she had tweeted: “At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?” Remember what happened afterwards? Nothing.
No change was made on the DACA decision, which is why Democrats and some RINOs are still fighting for it today.
Now, she does make one good point. Nothing Michel Wolff could say could hurt Trump more than what Trump could say or do. I believe there are only two beings in existence that can destroy Trump: God and Trump himself.
Again I find myself making this point: he’s not an idiot. He’s not going to self-destruct.
One of the reasons he tweets so much is so that he can maintain contact with regular Americans as much as he can. The media is full of lies. He knows he can’t trust them, so he chooses to use a direct network with his millions of followers. He has paid attention. He knows what his supporters want. We want to Make America Great Again and building the Wall will be a major step towards doing so. He knows this very well.
Now, you may be asking: “Why would he essentially promise to sign anything that comes to his desk?”
I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t know for sure, mostly because I’m not Trump and don’t know what he thinks all the time. But there’re some possibilities.
Possibility #1: To ditch the “divisive” association made to him in a show of solidarity with members of Congress. Even Senator Jeff Flake said that the meeting was far more constructive than he expected it to be and he was “impressed” by the President’s flexibility. For the first time in a long time, the media reports positively about him.
Possibility #2: To get members of Congress to attend his State of the Union address later this month so that they may directly listen to what he has to say, to the accomplishments he’s made in the last year and perhaps to further drive his desire to build the Wall. Trump is a showman. He enjoys an audience. He might want these people to pay close attention to what he wants and what he looks to do this calendar year 2018.
Possibility #3: To show that it’s possible for Congress to work together and get something done. During the campaign trail, there were times when Trump bashed Congress for not being able to get anything done, a point which was made obvious throughout 2017. He might want to make an example out of them by showing the American people and members of Congress that when united, Congress can achieve plenty of things. Perhaps this is merely to put pressure on Congress to pass more MAGA legislation in the future. Personally, I don’t think that would work, but Trump may be looking to see what he can get Congress to do.
I’ll grant you, those are not the only possibilities. It’s entirely possible that none of these are right or only a bit of all of them is right, but we won’t know until the President does or doesn’t do something on this issue.
Now, notice how I don’t mention him folding on immigration as a possibility. That’s because of the very point I’ve been making throughout this article: he’s not dumb. He’s not dumb enough to abandon his base. He knows Democrats will still try to impeach him and when that fails, to defeat him in 2020. I seriously doubt he’s simply looking to be well-liked by the enemy. And I seriously doubt he’d be looking to do that through surrendering everything he stands for.
I think he’s done enough great things to Make America Great Again throughout his tenure as President to warrant a little faith in the guy. He’s often shown to be witty and, to use his own words, a “very stable genius”. And while the Left mocks him for that, it’s a very truthful statement.
I have faith that Trump will not concede to the Democrats and accept whatever deal they want. He’s not going to let them scam him.

In my last article, I briefly mentioned how even Oprah Winfrey running for President wouldn’t save the Democrat Party and the Left from the disaster that they currently are. Here, I want to further talk about this topic and point out many reasons why Oprah Winfrey would not beat Donald Trump and win the 2020 Presidential election should she choose to run.
First, I want to bring up the only point I made about this topic from the last article: she’s a Leftist who would bring back Obama policies.
Having endorsed then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008, it’s not crazy to think she would attempt to bring back Obama-type policies. Policies which had torn down America as much as possible for 8 years. Policies that were partly responsible for the rise and election of Donald Trump. Policies that put us in the mess we were in for nearly a decade and we’re still trying to get out of. And with Trump, we’re doing a pretty decent job so far of getting out of the mess Obama put us in.
Aside from policies, the Daily Wire gives us a countdown of five “fails” Oprah has made in her career (which translate into reasons she shouldn’t be elected).
According to the Daily Wire, number 5 is her Golden Globes Award Speech.
“Hollywood and the mainstream media promoted Oprah as ‘brave’ following her speech at the 75th Golden Globes Awards, but, as Shapiro pointed out (in an interview with Fox News), ‘What the hell kind of risk was she taking?’”, saying that “She was standing in front of an entire town filled with sexual abusers and harassers. She said nothing about it for 20 years; she was being cheered by people who said nothing about it for 20 years, and there she is pretending that she’s leading the fight.”
He continued: “Well, I was under the impression that most of us agreed with that stuff when this stuff first broke and she lauded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Where were they reporting on the sexual harassment and abuse scandal for the last 20 years?... Where was the Hollywood Press Association that was receiving such plaudits at the hands of Oprah Winfrey, again, a woman who was good friends with Harvey Weinstein, being cheered by Meryl Streep, a woman who gave a standing ovation to Roman Polanski?”
I would add on to that Streep comment by mentioning that she once referred to Weinstein as “God”. More importantly, TheGuardian.com reports that Polanski won’t face criminal charges for the allegations made in 1975 when he molested a 10-year-old girl. The reason? You honestly won’t believe it.
Because the allegations are too old.
Remind me again how old the allegations made against Roy Moore are? And yet that battle is still going on.
Regardless, we continue.
According to the Daily Wire, number 4 is that “Oprah suggests Americans are racist – even if they do not have ill will toward black people.”
“In a 2013 interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker, stars in ‘The Butler,’ strongly hinted that Americans were racist – even if they did not have any ‘ill will’ toward the black community.”
Winfrey said that “People don’t feel it’s race because people don’t call it race… A lot of people think if they think they’re not using the n-word themselves… and do not harbor ill will towards black people that it’s not racist. But to me, it’s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved.”
So we’re racist even if we harbor no ill will against the black community? By the same token, isn’t assuming something like that inherently racist in itself? If you assume everyone else who is not black is racist, isn’t that racist itself? The funny thing is that, with everything the Left says about white people, if they replaced the word “white” with the word “black”, I can just imagine the shock they would get to find that what they’re saying is racist.
Racism is a two-way street. A black person can be racist against white people (case in point, the apparent Democrat front-runner) as much as a white person can be racist against black people. Neither is right. Neither should be accepted.
Alas, we move on.
The Daily Wire then says number 3 is: “Oprah gives platform to an Islamic scholar who says Islamic jihad is only a spiritual battle – not a ‘Holy War’.”
“Varun Soni, the dean of Religious Life at the University of Southern California, appeared on Winfrey’s ‘Belief’ series where she explained that all of the horrifying acts of violence committed in the name of Islam were all just great big misunderstandings of a core Islamic belief.”
“One of the most misunderstood concepts of Islam is ‘jihad’, which many people interpret as a ‘holy war’”, Soni said. “But there is nothing holy about war. What ‘jihad’ actually represents is an internal struggle, the battle that is raging in our own heart. And all of our religious traditions talk about that internal struggle. In that respect, jihad is not just a Muslim idea but it’s a reality of the human condition.”
Thankfully, the Daily Wire is quick to call out the b.s. “In the Quran, Mohammad speaks of jihad, or holy war, repeatedly. Though the concept of ‘greater jihad’ (internal spiritual battle against sin) has been a part of Islamic teaching since at least the 11th century, the word jihad is most often used in canonical writings to refer to armed conflict.”
What’s interesting is that the Quran also teaches its followers that it’s ok to deceive non-believers if it benefits Islam. They can even lie about rejecting Allah as long as they are not sincere about the rejection. They can deceive people that way if it means saving their lives (which in turn helps further the growth if Islam).
So it’s not surprising to see this Muslim “scholar” lying to Oprah and her viewers about what “jihad” means. If it were strictly an internal struggle, Muslims wouldn’t be killing people and calling it jihad!
Regardless, we move on.
According to the Daily Wire, number 2 is “Oprah makes ‘absolutely not true’ racism allegations against a store clerk in Europe.”
“Winfrey, the most powerful woman in the world, accused a clerk at a small store in Europe of being racist towards her but refused to offer any identifying information of the alleged incident. Eventually, the store and the clerk were discovered and they said Winfrey was a liar.”
This really is somewhat of an extension of the 4th “fail”. The one about how all Americans are racist. Although this one is more about a poor European store clerk. I don’t want to spend too much time on this one since it’s very similar to that 4th fail, but it’s worth mentioning that she is not hesitant of accusing people of being racist. Then again, she’s a Leftist, so it’s expected that she’ll accuse people of that.
Finally, and perhaps the most crushing to her potential presidential bid: “Oprah says older generations ‘just have to die’ to solve the problem of racism.”
While this also deals with the topic of racism, it’s more noteworthy considering the ACTUAL WORDS SHE USED to suggest a way to end racism.
“In a 2013 interview with BBC, Winfrey said that entire generations ‘just have to die’ to cure the problem of racism.”
The actual quote: “Of course [the problem of racism] is not solved. You know, as long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, problem’s not solved. As long as there are people who still, there’s a whole generation – I say this, you know, I said this, you know, for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, community in the south – there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”
Man, Oprah Winfrey really doesn’t like old white people. She’s not saying that the concept of racism and practice of it has to die. She’s not saying that the mindset of racism has to die. No, she’s saying that old people who were “born and bred and marinated in it” have to die. Let’s not even give them a chance to change. No, because they were merely BORN into it, they have to die.
Funny enough, that’s awfully similar to the Nuremberg Laws established in Nazi Germany. Jewish people had to die (partly) if they could not or would not help the German War Machine. But even the Nazis were interested in at least somewhat keeping their Jewish captives alive, even if it’s at the edge of death. Not to take away anything from the horrors of the Holocaust, but it seems that Oprah would be more than ok with a genocide of old people.
Ok, that may be a bit much, but it’s clear she holds no love for old people if she doesn’t even want to give them the chance to change and makes assumptions that all old people are racist. That, in itself, is very hateful and bigoted.
To sum up, there’s no way Oprah would or even SHOULD beat Donald Trump in 2020. If the country does spectacularly well with Trump, there’s no reason for anyone to vote against him. There’s especially no reason to vote for someone who is as hypocritical and hateful as Oprah Winfrey is.
Ben Shapiro made the point that a presidential run would hurt her image of being a “uniter”. He says that merely getting political would hurt her image, since politics are always polarizing. Well, after reading all of this, it’s pretty clear that she’s not a “uniter” as people call her. She’s a hypocrite for covering for Harvey Weinstein. She’s judgmental of white people even if they harbor no ill will towards black people. She’s allowed a Muslim to spread misinformation about jihad. She’s made accusations against people based on nothing and she’s hateful of people simply for having been born in the era they were.
America doesn’t need someone as despicable as Oprah Winfrey in the White House.

One of the biggest news pieces of the New Year has been Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
His book details things that Steve Bannon supposedly said about Trump and his family, and details of how Trump is “intellectually incapable of being the President of the United States,” according to Wolff during an interview with BBC.
In fact, it’s during this interview with BBC that he claims: “The story that I’ve told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can’t do his job, the emperor has no clothes. And suddenly, everywhere, people are going ‘Oh my God, it’s true, he has no clothes.’ That’s the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end this – that will end this presidency.”
I would just like to remind Mr. Wolff that Hillary Clinton tried this tactic during the election. She, too, would claim that Trump is unfit for presidency. She would often make this claim and it was one of her biggest arguments against her opponent. Need I remind you how that turned out?
Multiple people have called out Wolff and his book for having untrue things within it. In one of the chapters, Wolff claims that Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh tried to distance themselves from “Trumpism” and Trump himself at Roger Ailes’ funeral. Both Rush and Laura have said that that is a false statement, with Rush saying on his show that no one outside of Ailes’ family spoke during the funeral. During the memorial service? Sure. But not the funeral. And even during the service, Rush recalls that “Trumpism” was not even brought up and the topic of Trump’s presidency never came up either.
Other claims are that Melania Trump was “saddened” when her husband won the election, and that Donald Trump didn’t even want to win the election in the first place, going so far as to saying he HOPED he would lose.
If he wanted to lose, why would he tarnish his reputation with his liberal friends? If he wanted to lose, why would he be willing to lose so much money doing this? Why spend his own money during the campaign and not accept major donations? Why abandon all chance of him returning to reality t.v.? Why become one of the most polarizing figures in world history?
Not to mention that this argument by Wolff contradicts the whole Russia narrative. If he wanted to lose, why would he then collude with Russia to steal the election from Hillary?
Wolff has been called out as a liar and he thinks his book of lies will get Trump removed from office? WHAT A JOKE!
This is perhaps one of the weakest attempts at removing Trump from office. Gossip? Seriously?
According to Breitbart, Wolff described the POTUS as: “’ineffectual,’ incapable of passing legislation, implementing policy, or producing regulations.”
Well, here’s how I respond. America is in a far better shape today than it was a year ago or during any of Obama’s 8 years in office. The Dow Jones has broken multiple records, unemployment rates are hitting all-time lows, millions of jobs have been created since Trump took office, ISIS has been almost entirely defeated, taxes have been cut, people are keeping more of their money, Hollywood and media perverts are being destroyed (tell me Harvey Weinstein, a very good friend of the Democrats, would still have been ousted with Hillary as President), and the future overall looks very bright.
I would even joke about Trump actually beating global warming with the cold weather we’ve been having over the last couple of weeks, but then I’d be conceding the ridiculous point that Man can affect the climate in such a way.
Either he’s the single luckiest President to have ever worked in the Oval Office or he’s insanely efficient at his job.
“Incapable of passing legislation”. Right, that’s not up to him. That’s up to members of Congress. Tax cuts are the only major piece of legislation to pass Congress because Republicans decided not to be total jerks for once and passed it.
“[incapable of] implementing policy”. Many of the aforementioned achievements wouldn’t have even happened if he was actually incapable of implementing policy. He’s not just implementing policy efficiently, he’s also fulfilling many of the promises he made during the campaign trail. How many politicians can say they’ve done that?
“Producing regulations”. Here’s the only thing I agree on and that’s only because TRUMP DOESN’T WANT MORE REGULATIONS! In fact, much of the credit for the growing economy at 3% growth goes to the fact that Trump has been DEREGULATING businesses. And this tax cut will help to further serve that purpose, in a sense. A tax cut is a deregulation of how much (in this case, businesses) have to pay the government.
Like I said, he’s either the luckiest POTUS ever, or he’s perfectly efficient at his job.
So, no, Mr. Wolff. Your book won’t even make a dent in his status as President. But it’s good to know that that’s the intention of your book. I could easily write an entirely untruthful book about Obama with the purpose of jailing him. The ironic thing is that I wouldn’t need to lie to do that. Literally, all I would need is the TRUTH.
But this is nothing more than another attempt at undermining Trump and his presidency. In all their efforts to call him “incompetent”, “unfit for office” and “insane”, the Left has nearly lost all of their marbles. They’ve gone coo-coo for Coco Puffs. They’ve gone bananas.
Their efforts to destroy Trump have left them a shell of their former selves. Before, they had great (or at least decent) reputations and much of their sanity. Now, there aren’t enough mental hospitals in the world to admit the whole of the Left.
They’ve desperately tried and failed to destroy Trump, both before and after his election. The Democrat Party is in shambles, Hollywood is very much despised and hated (for multiple reasons, really), and the Mainstream Media’s credibility has gone up in flames.
Nancy Pelosi said that the tax cuts would be the “end of the world”. No, the end of the world, at least for Democrats, came on November 8th, 2016. But that was only the beginning of the end for them.
And no, people everywhere aren’t going “Oh my God, the emperor has no clothes.” People everywhere are going “Oh my God, the Left is done.”
And it’s not like Oprah Winfrey could save them either. All she’ll promise is more Obama policies and the country has grown tired of them. We’re doing well with Trump. There’s no way we’d let another insane Leftist in the White House when the country just got it back from them.

When you think about it, that title really is an oddity. For any Leftist to worry about the millennial generation voting Republican in the future is rather stunning. But why does Phillip Reines, former Hillary Clinton advisor, worry that millennials might vote more for Republicans in the future? Short answer: tax cuts.
At a panel with the Washington Center, Phillip said that he doesn’t “know how millennials think… It’s unclear what will get them going… Someone like Sanders and Warren seem to tap into that… But you can’t just assume that people last year (2016 election) would’ve gotten what Hillary Clinton got and add it on to it… But I think millennials have to, they more than anyone, have to say this is not normal and there’s a lot of pressure to shut up… Donald Trump and his people want everyone to shut up, get over the election, Hillary Clinton go away. That’s in their best interest. But that’s not how it works. We’re supposed to oppose what we disagree with. And I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull of accepting this is what it is. God knows how many will see their taxes go down and base it just on that… They are a key demographic that voted oddly in 2016… I’m not sure that people understand how to get them to vote productively in 2020.”
Ok, that’s an awful lot to talk about.
Let’s go step by step. First, of course he doesn’t know how millennials think. He himself is not a millennial. But he’s right in saying that someone like Sanders and Warren seem to tap into that. Sanders and Warren know (at least to a decent extent) how millennials think. The way millennials think, unfortunately, is very much socialistic. They want everything to be free, not want to work for anything and want things to just be given to them.
Millennials want to be taken care of by their parents for as long as they live. But since parents can’t do that, that’s where the state comes in. I remember Mark Zuckerberg giving a speech to a graduating class at Harvard. In that speech he talked about how everyone should have a fixed income no matter what, even if they don’t have a job. That the government should just give people money for living.
I don’t think I have to go into too much detail on why that’s a very stupid idea, but to millennials, that’s a great idea! They don’t consider the economic consequences of such an idea. They just want free money for doing nothing. No nation can afford to do that and survive. Moreover, no CIVILIZATION can afford to do that. If no one works, nothing gets done. If you’re going to get paid for doing nothing, you might as well do nothing.
Society was made by people who DID stuff. If no one worked anymore, no more iPhones would be made, no servers would be maintained, there’d be no running water, no electricity. Millennials, if you want to know a sure-fire way to actually kill the internet, it’s not through repealing Net Neutrality. It’s through no work being done by anyone.
But ideas like those sound good to millennials because they can’t really be bothered to think too hard about it. Without a doubt, if there’s any Deadly Sin that plagues the millennial generation, it’s sloth.
Second, he says that millennials have to understand that this (I’m presuming, world) is not normal. That “there’s a lot of pressure to shut up.” And that “Donald Trump and his people want everyone to shut up, get over the election, Hillary Clinton go away.”
I would like to respond by saying that no one is pressuring anyone to shut up, especially Trump. Doing so would call for a violation of people’s first amendment rights, which is why he doesn’t do that. Wanna know who pressures people to shut up? The Left. They pressure Christians to shut up about God. Pressure conservatives to shut up about how great our country is.
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen or watched a story about a kid somewhere in the country being ordered by teachers to take off a shirt with the American flag on it because it’s “offensive”. And don’t get me started with college students and their “safe zones”. Every time someone mentions Donald Trump in a college campus, the kids will begin to freak out and run to the “safe zone” to be away from things that “could severely impact someone’s mental health.” No joke, I’ve seen that b.s. excuse thrown around to protect these children.
And yes, I call them children despite the fact that I, myself, am 21 years old and college-aged.
But Donald Trump most certainly does not pressure anyone to shut up.
Phillip mentions getting over the election. To which I say, yes, we have told people to do that. Why? Because there’s no point in still being upset about it anymore! Sure, just after the election, I can’t blame any liberal for being upset about the results. But after A WHOLE YEAR?! If people haven’t gotten over the election results yet, they have some serious problems to deal with. Even the Russia probe has lost almost all traction.
I was upset about the 2012 election results for a week at the most.
And about Hillary Clinton going away, Phillip couldn’t be more wrong. I, for one, LOVE IT whenever Hillary Clinton makes any sort of public appearance. Why? Because she’s essentially a ghost haunting the Democrat Party. She’s a candidate the Democrat Party wants to forget. Even they realize Hillary is far too much of a liability for them to still support unabashedly.
I don’t want Hillary Clinton to go away simply because she always manages to make the Democrat Party look bad. And if there’s anyone I can say has any right to still be upset about the election, it’s her.
Next, he talks about opposing what you disagree with. Ironically, I actually agree with him on this. I wanted the GOP to oppose Obama on everything he did, but they barely even tried. I don’t expect the Democrats to simply back down.
Then, he talks about hoping millennials don’t fall into a lull of accepting this is what it is. Now what does he mean by that? That he hopes millennials won’t just accept the results of the election? Quite possibly. But one thing comes to mind that could also be a strong possibility.
He doesn’t want millennials to think this Make America Great Again campaign is normal for the country. He doesn’t want them to think there’s any chance of making America great. With ISIS being almost entirely defeated, the Dow Jones at record-highs, a tax cut that benefits nearly everyone and massive drops in unemployment rates, these are things that are not normal to millennials.
Us millennials didn’t get to experience the Reagan years. Many of us were born in the 90s, when Bill was President. We grew up in the 90s and 2000s. Those were our childhood years. Children tend not to pay too much attention to the world. For many of us, Obama’s America was normal. And that’s saying a lot.
For us, difficulty getting jobs was normal. A declining economy was normal. America getting disrespected by both Americans and non-Americans was normal. We truly believed that America’s best days were behind her. And I think Phillip wants millennials to continue believing Obama’s America is normal, not Trump’s.
And he clearly shows that he’s afraid millennials will see a new standard of normalcy with Trump’s presidency. He’s worried that the tax cuts letting them keep more of their money will lead them to vote more Republican.
Personally, I don’t know about that. I’m not going to raise my hopes and believe they will start voting more Republican (or at least more conservative). Like I said, my generation is more socialistic. One piece of legislation like tax reform won’t do that much. Millennials tend to believe the Left, which is a scary thought. If the Left claims credit for millennials keeping more of their money, millennials might believe them.
If millennials don’t think too hard about the consequences of a fixed income for everyone, they likely won’t think too hard about who they should thank for them having more money.
I might be a bit too harsh about my generation, but they’ve barely given me any reason to have high hopes for them. Although, one thing is for certain: millennials are a wildcard.
During high school, I’ve met some millennials (not a lot) that are rather socialistic but, funny enough, support the 2nd Amendment and the troops. That revelation stunned me. I would’ve expected these millennial classmates of mine to be full-on socialistic, particularly on issues like guns and our troops.
Of course, these are rather individual cases. I’ve met just as many millennials who are opposed to guns entirely. But these classmates have made me think that this generation isn’t all that different from previous ones. Each individual has their own opinion and beliefs.
What I’m trying to say is that not all is lost with my generation. We’re an odd bunch, but there’s some hope for us yet. The very fact that I myself believe and know these things, that I’m a Christian conservative, gives me hope for the future.
The Left has done a lot of damage to my generation. It’s up to us, conservatives of all ages, to reverse that damage as much as we can.
