Conservatives Need be More Understanding, Really?

 

Bear with us as we cover a delicate subject of the feelings of rage from our leftist adversaries, or shall we be kind and refer to them as our friendly rivals on the political battlefield. (If liberal-leftist-speak, as Orwell might have referred to it, bothers you then please take advice and skip until after a familiar picture below.) Liberals, those conservatives attempt to malign by calling them leftists or liberal extremists, are simply more in touch with their feelings than are those stuffy and self-critical conservative cold-hearted elitists. These conservatives stand aloof in their steel and glass towers demanding that police go forth and do what they are too afraid to do, stand before liberals and defend their man, the clown in the White House. They know their chosen leader is nothing but a loud mouthed, brash, ignorant, uneducated lout and a bully whose chosen weapon is obscene tweets. All they are capable of doing is claiming they were just as upset four years ago but were too busy making money and suppressing their emotions to be capable of any noticeable reactions. They admit all they were capable of was calling for their tools, the Republicans in Congress, to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. Now they are crying in their cold potato soup, Vichyssoise they call it. Then they follow this up with salted and spiced snails, Escargot they call it, and finally the entrée of raw ground beef with a nice raw egg dropped in the middle, Steak Tartare they call it, and their belief and trust in the man they bought into the White House is just as fake as their names for what most would call inedible foods. They claim they cannot understand the people demonstrating the fact they stole an election using the tricks of bending the rules in their favor while they know that factually Hillary won the popular vote and in any real democracy, not this farm ridden excuse where they use rubes to elect their excuse for a man, she would be sitting properly in the White House and the United States would not be the laughing stock of the world across Europe. Perhaps we need to spell out the reasons behind what they are witnessing and the why’s and wherefores’ of what is being called the Resistance and what they are labeling the hyper-political rejectionism being committed by Democrats in Congress.

 

First let’s talk about the political reaction in Congress, which is no different than the refusals of the Republicans to cooperate with President Obama for eight years. Despite what they point to of the Republicans working to assist with the budget proposals which kept the government operating, they cannot deny that many of the most innovative and important pieces of legislation passed without either a single Republican vote or a mere smattering of Republicans willing to do the people’s work. They invented obstructionism during the Obama Presidency where they never did accept that a minority person of color was in the White House. If they thought there was even a glimmer of a chance, they would have brought impeachment charges against President Obama their hatred was so obviously visceral. They seethed with disgust. They thought they were sophisticated and it did not show, but we could see it on plain display in their every word dripping with bile. Their ridicules in private, we heard as some could not hide their feelings and shared the poisons spoken by their friends in their smoke-filled rooms where the money passes hands to make the decisions against the will of the people. The same way the money passed hands and the fix was put in to deny Hillary her prize, her due of the Presidency because they simply hate.

 

Now we are protesting using legal demonstrations and they are hyperventilating over these displays of popularist emotions. We are in the streets giving display to the feelings of the majority of Americans that there is an unfit lunatic now representing our once proud nation. For the past eight years Americans could hold their heads high as we were represented by grace, charm and intelligence and now we cringe at every display of raw idiocy and hate pouring from the centers of power in the White House. His Twitter posts are an embarrassment which apparently nobody on his staff is capable of reeling Trump in and getting Trump under any control whatsoever. Even typing his name is difficult but we are liberals and thus we are the polite and wonderful people who are really trying to be accepting, but you make it so difficult. We understand when you ask how could we nominate Hillary, but what is your excuse, Trump? I mean like really? And conservatives ask why the left is out protesting. Can you actually have any doubt as to why with Trump in the White House? Then there are the claims of violence when obviously the violence is being orchestrated from those shady backroom deals with the cigar smoke and the bourbon whiskey glasses ringing as you toast the brilliance of sending ninjas to discredit the throngs of peaceful protesters. Our protesters would never partake of such violence and have you noticed that the stores they attack are all owned by our supporters such as Starbucks etc. Why would these thugs have been attacking our friends? These are obviously hateful extreme right wing agitators using rioting in order to discredit lawful and righteous demonstrations against this thug and illegitimate usurper sitting in Hillary’s Oval Office.

 

But let us set your minds at ease. We are not interested in a revolution or any other improper forceful reaction as we are law-abiding citizens who love our nation. What we desire is for our rightful government to be returned to the rightful majority of citizens who elected the true President of the United States, Hillary Clinton, the only correct President who was chosen by the majority of all the people. You know the Electoral College is an archaic invention of white slave owners simply to protect their white privilege and position of wealthy land owners and the elitists of society. They invented the Electoral College as a tool for the propagation of their rule while giving the people a feeling of voting rights and power. It was invented to give a visage of fairness while preserving the rule of the White wealthy class and their proper place ruling over the lesser peoples. We understand that you have fudged the system because it failed to prevent the election of a President who was not of the White privileged class and you have worked the system to assure that no minority ever makes it into the White House again. That is why the majority of Americans have been dispossessed by your Electoral College and you have usurped power placing a buffoon into power as he is really under your control while giving the image of an uncontrollable child on a temper tantrum. We are not fooled and we will prevent your oppressive white privileged power play to forever change the America we love and the America we have worked so hard and long to bring into the world of nations and to give all the people the right to power. And this has been the tone of all too many leftist news and internet locations and outlet since Election Day.

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu

This was the Meeting of the Minds from Yesterday
May it Appeared for all Intents and Purposes to have been a
Mind Melding with both Leaders on the Same Page
For Fulfilling all the Promises from San Remo Forward

 

Now for a more centered look and our regular readers can breathe easier, we have not gone over to the dark side of the farce. The left believed the media predictions after the resounding reelection of President Obama and did not notice their losses in virtually every other level of governance from the local dog catcher to governors to Congress and virtually everywhere with the once glaring exception, the major cities. There, where these leftists live among the more normal liberals who are just as much victims to the leftist hijacking of their Democrat Party as the nation is to their destructive members of “The Revolution” being waged across the cities and university campuses. Do not be fooled, they mean revolution and are fully intending to do whatever it may take to install their idea of a perfect governance, fascist leftist government where conservatives are kept subordinate and their leadership sent off to the reeducation camps. While the rest of the United States have been struggling with a lethargic economy and elevated unemployment while the level of workforce participation became more a measurement of workfarce participation with ever more people, largely millennials, finding there no entry level positions and the job market all but closed to them despite having college degrees in the social sciences which they had been assured were highly valued. There are those surprised that their major of Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets does not actually qualify them for any position outside teaching Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets, of which there are almost three dozen positions in the world. Now they are angry and when they were sold that Hillary Clinton would remedy this situation and when she lost they lost it. Some were caught up in the movement which has offered them a new solution, taking the power they lack.

 

There is a problem which the conservatives have foolishly believed will work itself out as these demonstrators get tired and lose interest and return to whatever occupied their time previously. Were these regular people with regular jobs, the demonstrations and the riots would have already dwindled out as have previous such demonstrations. Perhaps we can remind people of the former renditions of what we are seeing. There had been the Occupy Wall Street and the Other 99% otherwise called the Anti 1 Percenters and then all the way over in Israel, the Cottage Cheese Demonstrations which were thankfully ended by that demand to return to classes when the university classes resumed. All of these demonstrations started and continued through mid and late summers as there were large numbers of unemployed and bored college students and an equal number of easily amused high school students who would come and protest during the day and return to their suburban homes red-eyed each night. The attraction of free drink and drugs proved irresistible to these kids and their parents seemed oblivious to their activities or possible a calm supportive feeling that this was simply a phase. Well, now there are groups with paid full-time organizers and often seed moneys to be spread to those who are capable of bringing with them additional bodies to swell the ranks. These riots and the demonstrations within which they are being couched are not about to die down and their anger is palpable. They mean revolution or at least their leaders and the moneyed interests fueling these actions believe. The police being told to stand off and allow the rioters as well as the demonstrators free ranging freedoms is intended to simply allow the demonstrations to grow and for larger and larger groups to cross over from the demonstrations to the rioting and joining the black clad ninja warriors of the left.

 

This is the beginning of a revolution and there is only one meaningful means of bringing it to an end. This is where the good news arises and President Donald Trump may just be the antidote. The one thing which will rob these demonstrations and thus the rioting of numbers would be a thriving economy which is why we will witness these demonstrations attempt to do whatever is required to prevent a return to prosperity, at least in and around the major cities. There will be efforts to destroy any growth of the economy in the cities with the intention of causing economic collapse of the cities and soon thereafter the suburbs as well hoping to collapse the job market and building the discontent. This is being orchestrated in order to well the ranks of those who are unemployed, underemployed and dispossessed in the society and thus the disenchanted willing to join “The Revolution” allowing for a potential real revolution. When the point is finally reached that the cities are starting to be burned by the rioters and the White House has to act and send in National Guard to quell the violence we will hear the screams of fascism. What is so ridiculously pathetic is that those who want a revolution are intent on installing an actual fascist governance which suspends elections with them never to return in the lifetimes of the cheering throngs thinking they have won not realizing what they have borne. Trump will not only not be remaining in office one second longer than elected, he may desire getting out of the hot seat after a single term and who could blame him. Even if he is not as wealthy as he claims, he still earns more than the Presidential salary he would be receiving if he were not giving it to charity. Trump has no desire to be king despite the accusations coming from the left. He simply may be a victim of his campaign’s success and counting the days until he is a free man again or he might be bathing in the believed admirations he thinks he is receiving, either way he will leave once his time is done. With any luck he will be able to jumpstart the American economic engine which has been fuel starved for the past decade and to release the horses that charge the money flow from their strangling regulations allowing them to run free and spread wealth in their wake. The American economy is likely just waiting to be permitted to jump at the opportunities if only permitted unfettered access to the drivers of economic freedom. This is job one just as Trump claimed during the campaign and the faster the regulational drawback and the release of the investment cycle through tax rate adjustments permitting for the easy movement of monies from investment to investment and across different means of entrepreneurial enterprises, the faster the jobs will multiply and the sooner there will be more jobs than people to fill them. This will allow for a healthy new immigration system streamlined benefiting the needs of the nation to bring in the people required to even further enhance the capital investment cycles and increased profit margins, the best means of a healthy economy. These increases will result in greater funds and possibly ending the yearly debt cycle which has strangled the United States and doubled the debt over the last decade. The future is full of hope providing that President Trump’s team are prudent and allow for an untethered economic environment and a return to American exceptionalism which will serve not only the United States but hopefully serve as an example which the rest of the industrialized world will follow, though Europe may be mired in their own sorry history and bad choices of late.

Things We Need Know for After Inauguration

 

The mainstream media does have some useful information if one can stand reading long enough to glean something useful. What one need remember is the mainstream media is also the playbook, play caller, coach, quarterback, message board, megaphone and the best comical future picture painter imaginable for the extreme left and Democrat Party, though we repeat ourselves. Despite great agony and struggling through as many typos and misspelled words, we would like to think even more than we miss here at BTC; these are a few of the items we found.

 

The most important item which has been made clear in so many ways is that the Presidency of Donald Trump will have been the greatest disaster in American history. Once in office, President Donald Trump will have wasted the talent, what little there may be, of his Cabinet and anybody who is worth a plug nickel will have quit within the first six months, if not weeks or days, because they will find they cannot work with such a megalomaniacal dunce whose brightest ideas will be which club to use when playing miniature golf as he will not even be capable of playing real golf as well a President Barack Obama had. The American people will find that they miss having President Obama in the White House with his steady hand guiding the nation through peril after peril while a President Trump will be have been causing peril after peril. The predictions of disasters continued with the statement that President Trump will have started a war with China, Mexico, most of Europe, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, much of South America, possibly Canada and will be in bed with the Russians serving the demands and at the beck and call of Putin and being led around through Russian hackers feeding him information through Twitter posts. These were some of the highlights but there was far more.

 

The Congress will revolt against President Trump as the legislation he sends them will appear to have been written by one of the beauty queens from his pageant days or one of the fired apprentices. Congress will be forced to be the adult in the government and the Democrats are prepared to prevent President Trump from causing any real or serious damage to the standing of the United States in the world. The Democrats will follow through magnificently in their promise to protect the high standards set by President Obama in his dealing in foreign policy. The Democrats will have found many the Republican allies who also understand the need to protect the United States from President Trump and are prepared to block everything sent to Congress by President Trump (this one almost has a ring of validity even we must admit). There will prove to be many Republican lawmakers who will be adult enough to admit their party sent a man-child to do the grown-up job of president and will work to message this childish egomaniac’s feelings of self-worth by stroking his self-image while rewriting any legislation making it work for the people and help those who require government to assist them in managing their lives rather than giving the rich more wealth taken from the backs of the most needy. The idea that the wealthy can be enriched by taking wealth from the most needy has always baffled us as the most needy do not have sufficient wealth to even make the average American wealthier by any actual measure, let alone the wealthy. Of course we realize they really mean giving largess from the government coffers to the wealthiest rather than giving it to the most needy, though the government does appear to do a great amount of both. This can be seen in the fact that many on welfare have a decent apartment with air-conditioning, at least one television, more often than not at least one computer or game console, a microwave, cable television feed, Internet access and most have at least one vehicle. This is about average for a middle class family back in the 1970’s had with obvious changes due to technological advancements. Let us return to what we found in the media, mostly online versions of print media.

 

By the end of President Trump’s first year even the most stalwart Republicans will have fallen in line with bringing impeachment against the President simply out of abject fear he is on track to force the next world war, had proven dangerously reckless with threats of using nuclear weapons and the Joint Chiefs of Staff will have reportedly had to step into the breach and invalidate Presidential orders to launch nuclear missiles. The similarities of the accusation for President Trump once in office to start wars, infuriate adversaries and allies alike and threaten the future existence of the world through madly wild and careless use of nuclear weapons as a threat and actually attempting to launch nuclear missiles to be similar but even more over the top than the predictions made about Ronald Reagan after he won the election and both before and while he was in office. The madness the mainstream media is predicting can only be found in rare old movie plots where somebody goes off their rocker and orders nuclear weapons use such as in the movies “Failsafe” and “Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” The ever more hyped predictions of doom are only exceeded by the forlorn lamentations over the fact that President Obama is not permitted to continue in office and remold the United States as had the nearly four terms of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. These discussions almost universally then diverge into discussions of how had President Obama run against Donald Trump how Barack Obama would have won in the largest and most humiliating landslide even beyond President Reagan. Some even add how had Bernie Sanders won the primaries, then he too would have cleaned Donald Trump’s clock easily gliding to victory. And then we get the Russians stole the election for Donald Trump and from there we find ourselves back in the Donald Trump will simply be the puppet of Vladimir Putin and he will be the Manchurian Candidate preprogrammed by Russian hackers to do Putin’s bidding. Those Russian hackers are good if they can reprogram people wirelessly, or is it Donald Trump is a Russian built android sent to run the United States for their needs? That is about the only stories not found in the mainstream media, yet.

 

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

 

With all this, there will be wild speculation on how the world and the nation of the United States will be dependent upon Congress, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and just about every proper-thinking American working tirelessly to protect the nation from the inevitable debacles which will be coming from the White House and raining ruin everywhere if not checked. This presumed future is then compared with the glory which was President Obama who for eight long and challenging years arduously and tirelessly worked to prevent the economic collapse of the world (or was it universe) and prevent ever more wars and so gloriously earned that Nobel Peace Prize and was worthy of so many more honors. We are forewarned how we will be shell-shocked by the bald faced incompetence of the incoming President and how his Cabinet will resemble a three ring circus after the initial appointees realize that President Trump is merely using them as window dressing and targets on which to place the blame when President Trump’s harebrained ideas explode on contact with reality. I guess that hope that things would return to normal with the United States playing a steadying role in the world are simply pipe-dreams as the media has explained in gruesome details. The United States presumably is about to crash and burn under President Trump as compared to the glorious years under President Obama’s tutelage.

 

All this pessimism demands we give our idea as to what is coming after January 20, 2017. Unfortunately, the initial actions of a Trump Presidency are dependent upon what outgoing President Obama does in the next days leading up to noon of Inauguration Day. We really do mean up until noon on that day and perhaps past if the ceremony takes place minutes late as is usually the case. Should President Obama take a Paris conference accord proposal for the establishment and invention of an Arab state called Palestine carved from the lands legally belonging to Israel and without Israeli consent and signature on a treaty, then President Trump will have a difficult task facing him immediately after taking office. Should President Obama have his co-conspirators bring a Chapter Seven Resolution declaring Palestine a reality with full Statehood recognized by the UNSC with the Green Line (the 1949 Armistice Line between Jordan and Israel demarking the front lines and the Israeli lands illegally occupied by Jordan) then President Trump will need coordinate with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu a response and course of action to overturn the decision. This will be possible and an eventuality as such a resolution, Chapter Seven or any other manner of resolution, is illegal as it breaks the United Nations Charter Article 80 which recognized all the demarcations and wordings of the Mandate System and all other resolutions in effect from the League of Nations. This makes the Jordan River the eastern border of the Jewish State of Israel. That is the international law recognizing the Israeli eastern border and there is no mention whatsoever of any Arab entity or Nation west of the Jordan River. This was also the reason behind an Egyptian Justice who sat on the International Court of Justice when the UNGA requested a ruling on the Security Barrier Israel had erected to prevent further suicide bombers and other terrorism. The barrier accomplished much of what it was intended to accomplish and the ICJ did not demand it be removed. As noted yesterday, the Honorable Justice El Araby warned the UNGA and others that filing further ran some risks, as he stated,

 

“The international legal status of the Palestinian Territory (paras. 70-71 of the Advisory Opinion), in my view, merits more comprehensive treatment. A historical survey is relevant to the question posed by the General Assembly, for it serves as the background to understanding the legal status of the Palestinian Territory on the one hand and underlines the special and continuing responsibility of the General Assembly on the other. This may appear as academic, without relevance to the present events. The present is however determined by the accumulation of past events and no reasonable and fair concern for the future can possibly disregard a firm grasp of past events. In particular, when on more than one occasion, the rule of law was consistently side-stepped. The point of departure, or one can say in legal jargon, the critical date, is the League of Nations Mandate which was entrusted to Great Britain.”

 

Beyond this, President Trump has already indicated he will work towards repeal of UNSC Resolution 2334 recently passed under Chapter Six due to the United States efforts behind the scenes and their blatant determination to injure Israel punishing her because she refused to roll over and die when demanded to do so by President Obama and his team during the Iran farce of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program and their drive for nuclear weapons parity with the United States or, at the least, Israel as well as only complying with most but not every demand for concessions to the Palestinian Authority (PA) while the PA simply sent more requests for concessions for the President and State Department to draw out of Israel. This was payback for the lack of subservient compliance with edicts from upon high, or at least the second floor of the White House.

 

Then there are the promises made by candidate Trump which a President Trump will need to deliver. The first and biggest is tax reform. Trump made some bold statements for initiatives for tax reform. His plans realize that all taxes are actually paid by the people and that such taxes as sales tax and taxes on businesses and industry are simply folded into the price of products which serves two counterproductive results, first the increased price makes United States products priced from the world market where if the prices were more competitive with the other nations, especially those which subsidize their industries generously making United States products unaffordable by comparison and second the higher price hurts the middle and low income people the most as they are paying the taxes and fees. Removing taxes on industry and businesses will make for lower prices on products and slower rate of inflation as sales beyond the border will increase simply due to this one tax being eliminated thus allowing for increased production to meet the new demand which will provide more jobs and eventually rising wages as employment reaches higher percentages as there will be increasing demands for workers. Second the simplification of the income tax levels making them generally lower across all salary ranges and the reduction of claimable deductions will make taxes more fair as with fewer deductions the wealthy will have fewer shelters from income taxes and thus will be paying tax on greater percentages of their income though the lower rate will make this reality less painful for most. Finally, lowering Capital Gains taxes will result in more fluidity in the investment business which will allow the movement of investments to more promising industries and will subsidize innovations. The resetting of Capital Gains such that it does not penalize investors moving funds from one investment to another facilitates start-up companies as there will be more funds available from which to get seed monies invested. Hopefully the congress will resist any urges for recalcitrance and the Republican majorities can show spine and certitude of their convictions and enact the changes to the tax codes and systems.

 

Repeal of Obamacare will be another big challenge as there are some vested interests and too many of those sit in congress. Obamacare grants power over healthcare and its being provided to the people and despite the refusal of Democrats to admit there are established committees which will decide when a person is no longer a viable contribution to society and thus will receive only the most marginal of healthcare and will not receive any life prolonging treatments which are expensive as such high priced care is out of the question. These health panels are not referred to as death panels but that is one of the functions they provide. Still, there are some provisions of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act (ACPPA) such as the provision which makes denial of insurance due to preexisting conditions is liked by most as the provision for retaining children under their parents’ insurance through age twenty-six appeals to young adults as well as parent with children in college or graduate school seeking advanced degrees. On the other hand, insurance companies are finding the ACPPA to be a disaster and many are pulling from providing insurance under the law. What need be is return much of the pricing of insurance and the setting of levels of coverage by different plans instead of a one size out of three or four is all you get. The ACPPA also demands certain items be provided coverage and everyone must include such items in their plans. Prenatal care is no more universally necessary as people over sixty have little use for prenatal care just as people who will be having children usually do not need assisted living coverage. Allowing for the tailoring of insurance plans to fit the individual would allow for greater coverage at reasonable prices. All that is actually required for near universal coverage would be a few simple requirements. First and of great importance is all plans covering hospital care past two or three days of being hospitalized with full coverage costing additionally, what used to be called major medical care while leaving routine care payments the responsibility of the patient, prescription drug minimal plan which would cover the price of medications after a minimum is cleared or a set percentage and priced accordingly, and there have to be other such items which would represent minimal coverage or the base plan. Then insurance companies can offer different plans or even a cafeteria style insuring where you choose exactly the parts you desire with price breaks for say every five items granting a percentage in savings. The final item is portability, the ability to take your health insurance across state lines, from one job to the next and other similar challenges. By having employers provide a healthcare bonus if they desire rather than their providing their idea of a great plan for their employees, this too would bring down the general cost of health insurance and could also slow the increases in healthcare costs.

 

This should be sufficient start of ideas to chew upon. Our final item is about how the atmosphere and entire mood of the media has changed since the election. First we have the panicking over the rise in “fake news stories” which have appeared of late. What is most amazing about the “fake news stories” is that many are carried by the mainstream media and not alternative media as much. Another anomaly is that much of the “fake news stories” come from leftist sources and are amplified as they spread across platforms and blogs take these “fake news stories” as being real news and thus making themselves less credible for using what they thought was actual vetted news as they found it in the New York Times, Salon or other such news sources. The uproar over “fake news stories” coming from the media was confusing until we found that there have been a number of nations, the United States and Germany, which have set in place a Department of Information which is designated the ultimate source for real news and for debunking “fake news stories” printed and placed before the public. We gave this deeper coverage in a recent article titled, “The Emergence of Departments of Official Government Truths”. There has also been a resurgence, a rediscovery even, in the fact that there are homeless people and greater care for our mentally challenged citizens who all too many are left out on the streets. Crime rates have become an issue as has any even hint of hate crimes. The greatest fake news and hate crime combination has been the Great Hijab Crime Wave we discussed where a series of Trump supporters attacking, taunting or otherwise belittling and intimidating young college women on university campuses who were wearing a hijab which apparently caused these white males to turn into vicious and demanding monsters. All of the stories proved to be unsubstantiated and were retracted by the very women who brought them forward. Then there are all manner of societal ills which we have not seen coverage of for the past eight years which are creeping back into the new and we can expect the floodgates to fly open on January 20, 2017 in such ferocity that these reports will seem to be as manufactured as the “fake news stories” have struck. Hold on, it is going to be a wild ride going forward, but let us hope we actually do go forward and not flying off into some dark hidden side track which leads to someplace nobody knows for sure.

It’s In, Trump’s Failed Presidency

 

The headlines almost uniformly report the Trump Presidency was a failure. Trump was a complete and total disaster and everything he touched turned to liberal progressive pain and disgust. The media all over has it figured and the problem is that Trump cannot do anything right. Or maybe it is he does everything right when to succeed everybody knows you have to be on the left, not just right. You see left is good, left is correct and right is just plain wrong. And whatever you do, do not come forward and say that Trump has not even been sworn in yet because that doesn’t matter, he’s a failure and nothing you or he can do will change that.

 

What if the economy takes off and both the markets, numbers of people employed and all other indicators fly high after he takes office? Well, obviously you must have missed the eight years of dedications and making the hard choices by President Obama which are finally paying off. Trump is simply reaping the rewards of all of President Obama’s brilliant handling of the economy. Had President Obama been permitted a third term or Hillary Clinton been elected, then they would have gained and gleaned all the glory but instead it is falling undeservedly on Donald Trump. No, there is little hope that the average American will understand these things as they are just so complex. This is how it always happens that a Democrat’s hard work is then claimed by their Republican successor when the difficult work was done before the Republican came into office. Reagan gained acclaim for all the work done by Jimmy Carter. It was President Carter’s examples of selflessness and showing that even a Capitalist can have a heart which wore down the USSR and not that military wastefulness of Reagan who claimed to have spent the Soviets into ruin. Have you ever heard anything so preposterous? They were brought low by love and caring of President Carter and not the brashness and impolite efforts of that brutish Reagan and everybody who knows anything knows that. Reagan also took credit for the economy made possible by President Carter’s fiscal policies. Like President Obama, President Carter inherited an economy teetering on the edge of oblivion and saved the United States from guaranteed ruination but does he ever get the credit for that miracle, no. Instead the historians have been pulled in by Reagan’s allure and simple charm. Simple charm, it was more like simpleton charlatan than simple charm. What they will not claim despite all the honest evidence.

 

Everybody who understands reality knows the truth and knows that the truth is often sacrificed because it is simpler to cheer and root for the new kid than recognize the dedication and hard work done by the predecessor who actually set the stage for the triumphant simpleton who lucked into the glories made possible by leftist policies carried out by the hard work of the previous administration. One great example has been Carrier deciding to keep a fair number of jobs and production in the United States rather than move it to Mexico. We understand that you heard it was because of efforts by Trump and Pence which arranged for these jobs to be kept in the United States rather than transferred to Mexico. Well, they have tried to steal the glory but remember who is in the White House and finally should be receiving the credits he is due. President Obama saved those jobs with his well-crafted policies designed to retain jobs in the United States finally paying dividends, but as is the Republican way, they stole the glory and thunder of a Democrat administration’s accomplishments. Their blatant disregard for facts is just appalling.

 

What will they claim next, that they are able to rebuild the military? The sole reason they are able to rebuild anything concerning the military has been due to the marshalling of efforts and the cutting of numerous wasteful military projects in favor of a more integrated military with a shared ability with their European counterparts. The Obama Administration had streamlined the military and its prolific spending and made it into a lean, green fighting machine and now Trump thinks he can simple ride in on his white steed and claim all the glory. Well, not if the media has anything to say about this glory hound who is never there for the hard work but first in line when taking credit is due. It has already been made clear that Donald Trump has no shame and will bathe himself in the glories only made possible by the hard and dedicated work of his predecessor who will receive no credit for his efforts. Donald Trump, just like Ronald Reagan, will be front and center to claim the great leaps and gains of the American economy which is simply responding to the inevitable wondrous gains in leaps and bounds due to what President Obama managed to accomplish despite a do nothing Congress and all the chips down against his success. While nothing could prevent the great recovery put in place by the policies of President Obama, heaven knows that Trump tried to ruin everything with his fiscal policies. It was simply more in place thanks to President Obama and his dedication setting the stage for a recovery which unfortunately for President Obama will come too little too late. Still, the historians will likely get everything sorted out and President Obama will rise meteorically and rival any President before and likely after him in what he accomplished.

 

Donald Trump

 

How else can the media report the greatness and the legacy which rightfully belongs to President Obama but will be stolen by his Republican successor. It is such an old trend where President Eisenhower inherited the result of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and continued by Harry Truman. We saw it with Ronald Reagan, a man who knew how to milk a scene from his days in Hollywood. Now we sit prepared to hear how Donald Trump will be appointing a man responsible for this betrayal as the bird awaits orders for the glamour shots to be taken. It was made all the more obvious as the President Elect stole the wonder which rightfully belonged to the team of the Obama Presidency. Be prepared for stories such as these as Trump’s policy reversals and smart management start to take hold. The one thing the media will have gotten correct is that President Obama may never get the credit he deserves for rescuing America from ruin.

 

The preceding was an exercise in sarcasm though this may be exactly what we are bound to hear for the next decade and possibly longer. We on the conservative end of the political spectrum can expect to read article after article in the likes of the New York Times just like what is written above except they will be serious as a heart attack. Their famous Pulitzer Prize winning writers will return and do their best to eviscerate Trump, his Cabinet choices and anything they have a hand in creating. Finally, the newsprint accusations will flirt with the truth just enough to make their condemnations sound credible. What Americans can do is ignore the media and take their news from their own lives and those of their friends, neighbors and yes, even liberals. Just nod knowingly as they explain how everything Trump accomplishes was actually due to President Obama who did all the heavy lifting. We know that there will be need for people capable of herculean abilities if the United States is to be rescued and placed back on the rails. All the way along the Progressives will be digging up the tracks and dynamiting the bridges in attempts to force Trump failures but even after such subterfuge The Donald will prevail. What will happen is that as long as Trump is in office, and presumably Pence after Trump leaves office, there will be sniping and biting at the ankles in attempts to destabilize the economy as well as governance in order to blame Trump. The secret to preventing such is to elect like-minded people to serve with the next Congress making Trump’s task that much easier. But do know the mainstream media will stop at nothing to undercut your efforts and those of Donald Trump. Do not fret as The Donald is a big boy and has taken down his share of bullies and these paper tigers of the media have absolutely no clue what is coming their way. Pop some popcorn and sit back after January 20, 2017 and prepare for the greatest show on Earth, and should we send the right thinking candidates to Congress for the next six years, three elections, then it just may be possible to wrest the United States from the death-grip of the looney left and put America on the tracks of being great again.
