The Left’s War Against Trump and the Media

 

Well, the leftist temper tantrum is a month old today so it only seemed right to acknowledge the courage, dedication and stamina of so many of these demonstrators to continue this long and with such enthusiasm, it is almost admirable. One might ask to what end they believe they are working towards but that would be silly, they have made that evidently clear. Their aim is to drive President Trump from office and put the rightful winner of the election in the Oval Office, Hillary Clinton. Somebody should inform them that there is a huge snag in their plan, that darned Constitution thing again. Drive Donald Trump from office and then there will be Mike Pence taking the Oath of Office. And should they then chase Mike Pence from office before he could have his appointment for his replacement through the Senate, something their allies in the Senate appear to be quite adept at doing, then the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, would become the President. I’m not sure if this force Trump from office idea has been completely thought out as each step appears to make things get even worse as people more familiar with how to get things through Washington come into power and each time with even further right views. As a matter of fact, if one goes through the entire list of progression you need to go really deep, wait a minute, no, Hillary Clinton is nowhere on that list whatsoever. Well, perhaps they have some other ideas on how to get Hillary Clinton or whomever they desire into the Oval Office, though short of a revolution I do not see how. We gave that idea a brief glancing concern in our article The Fascist Playbook is Being Repeated Now all in hopes that whoever and whatever is behind, pushing and financing these protests, and especially the senseless violence, are not hoping to force a revolution and end the great experiment in self-governance which is the United States of America.

 

There has always been a group of elitists who held that mankind is too ignorant, too stupid, too impatient, too selfish, too immature, too anything you could mention to be permitted the luxury of ruling themselves. Initially they were the royalty, the emperors, kings, queens, barons and the land owners. At the same time there was a second group who also believed mankind, including the ruling class of kings, queens, etcetera were too limited in all manner of ways to rule themselves; this was the Church centered in Rome. The kings and queens and their ilk figured their exceptional breeding made them the special chosen by Hashem to rule and this gave them the right and wisdom to rule. That idea does not even deserve argument as a simple perusing through the kings and queens and other nobles and one sees they were so wrong as many were seriously flawed and ignorant little people. The Church was a different subject as the Church could rely on a group intellect which gave them a better position for wisdom and proper rule but they too had a damning limitation, their reliance on the Bible as they interpreted it and their blindness to science and change. They saw science as a threat rather than a tool and refused to use any of its wisdom or ideas which had them living with falsehoods similar to the fake news of today. The Church splintered in the Protestant Reformation and never recovered their lost power and today only maintains an advisory role with merely a fragment of their former power. Now there are some elites with great wealth who believe their wealth means they have the superior abilities and should craft the society in their images. One such is George Soros who once stated, “I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control otherwise they might get me into trouble.” Just like those elitists from the past, today’s wunderkind are just as clueless and blind to their weaknesses and faults which will have their attempts to guide humanity fail just as have the previous attempts. There is another group which has always believed they are actually the ones who should lead the whole of humankind as they have this concept where the savior is government and if only the government with its collective wisdom was granted ultimate power they could solve every problem and steer society through all the potential storms, threats and difficulties.

This group is made up of predominantly the socialist, big government, regulation intensive leftists. These politically active individuals believe that they are correct and know the only solutions which could possibly work and insist that because of their superior intellects and greater education and other singular attributes, they should be the sole people to hold the reins of power. That is the problem, their selected candidate, Hillary Clinton, somehow was not as unbeatable as the media had painted her during the campaign. Making matters all the worse, the candidate who won the election was, according to the leftist elites, an idiot and incompetent buffoon full of bluster, braggadocios and simple minded to boot. They view President Donald Trump as completely unfit to hold the office of President and are willing to go to any extent to remove him from office and place somebody who is knowledgeable and competent into the Oval Office. One recent example comes from President Trump’s claim that he has tried and tried to arrange a meeting with Maryland Representative and Chairman of the Congressional Black Congress Elijah Cummings stating inferring actuality that, “He [Congressman Elijah Cummings], wanted it [a meeting], but we called, called, called, called. They can’t make a meeting with him. Every day I walk in I say, ‘I would like to meet with him, because I do want to solve the problem.’ But he probably was told by [Senator Chuck] Schumer or somebody like that — some other lightweight — he was probably told, ‘Don’t meet with Trump. It’s bad politics.’ And that’s part of the problem with this country.” It will be a matter of time, if it has not already happened, that some journalist or political figure will come out stating that they have talked with or have it on the highest authority that Donald Trump has not asked to meet Representative Cummings more than one reference in a speech somewhere or that Senator Schumer has not told Representative Cummings whether or not to meet with the President, that is if they refer to President Trump by his office or simply as Donald Trump as some have a habit claiming he is not dignified, intelligent, decent or sophisticated enough to deserve such reference. Apparently for Donald Trump winning the election was insufficient for him to have earned being referred to as President, imagine if such were to have been said of Hillary Clinton had she won the election by the Wall Street Journal or Glen Beck; the liberal media would come unglued.

 

Then there is the whole dust-up over “Fake News” and all which such entails. There have been some misleading stories and other simply made-up out of whole cloth stories either making the “Fake News” label valid or the entire “Fake News” story is “Fake News” all depending on which side of the political spectrum one resides. That is the basis of the problem in the United States, which we had pointed to first with The Mirage of the Unaligned Middle Voters back on June 17, 2011 and much later in Republicans Need a Real, Honest and True Blue Candidate on February 18, 2016, is the near complete lack of a true and palpable number of middle of the political spectrum voters. The American public has split nearly evenly and has polarized near completely. This has been the case for quite some time and everybody in the game understands this though often they wish to deny such and claim there is still huge numbers of middle of the road votes to be had. The media likes to pretend that there are votes to be gained by catering to the middle and running a campaign to match. Often we will see the Democrat candidate make speeches sounding out middle of the road principles and the media making a big deal about the Democrats playing it smart and running towards the middle. The reality is their voters are fully aware that it is all an act made to try and force the republican candidate to do likewise. Often this ploy in tandem with the media trumpeting the wisdom and campaign advisors who still remember what can only be called ‘the good old days’ when winning the middle of the road vote was essential and they advise the Republican to fish in those same waters as the Democrat using the old agenda that the true conservatives have no other choice and they may as well compete for the middle voters against the Democrats. The problem is in recent elections the conservative voters have been burned so often they stay home if they doubt the true intentions of the Republican candidate hoping that by doing so they can force the Republicans to nominate a true and real conservative. The Republicans, for reasons unknown, continued to play for the nonexistent center and lose with few exceptions. This last election Donald Trump refused to run to the center and simply stayed on his message and battled head to head with the media and his formula won.

 

The media is upset with President Trump because he did not fall for their trap of moving to the middle which would have cost him the election. They are upset that President Trump appears to have gotten the better of the media by winning the election. They have become even further enraged because President Trump refuses to let up on their biases and have been giving as good as he has gotten. They are furious that he defeated Hillary Clinton, the candidate they had all but elected a week before the election and that President Trump has not been humble in his victory and refuses to allow himself to be humbled by the media. He has called the media out for their lies and false accusations against him. The media simply wants President Trump to respect them as the holders of the holy grail by telling the stories as they see fit except President Trump just continues to insist on telling the stories his way and managing to get his side out to the people with or without the media. His Tweets drive them completely up the wall and into the crazy places of the attic as it allows President Trump access to his supporters without going through the formerly all-powerful media. He ignores them and then goads them whenever he deals with them. President Trump refuses to respect the media in the way they have grown accustomed to having politicians grovel. That President Trump basically used the media as an arm of his campaign by using a mixture of policy statements and completely ludicrous and taunting statements which they carried. The media saw Donald Trump as a series of insane commentary and ignored his policy statements while carrying them because they saw them as wrong-headed and unpopular while his supporters ignored his inane, insane, accusational statements which the media took as so important and loved his message and policy statements to heart and these won him the election. The election came down to the media and Democrat Party and Hillary Clinton using their tried and true personal attacks and characterization of Trump as a dangerous and evil, hateful and mean-spirited old fool while Trump ignored every nasty attack except for the occasional quoting of these nasty commentaries or mean coverage and otherwise stuck to his message pretending that he had seldom heard a discouraging word. In the end message won over accusations. The biggest drawing from the Trump campaign was the message on immigration while the most crucial is the one least talked about as if to talk about it is stepping on the third rail of journalism, but we are not journalists or normal, so here it is as plain as we can state it, the reason that Trump won. Donald Trump remembered from history that the British said much the same disparaging things calling Winston Churchill an old fool ringing the bells of war and hatred and seeing evil hiding behind every tree and that that same old fool saved the Western World from the evil clutches of fascism. Trump also sees a rising fascism in the world in the form of radicalized Islamic extremism and names it as such and Hillary Clinton claims there is no such threat and wanted to open the floodgates allowing in as many refugees from areas where just such threats are most rampant. Donald Trump saw the danger and Hillary Clinton did not thus Donald Trump won because he was willing to call things exactly as they appear and Hillary Clinton insisted on painting pretty pictures of Kumbaya and Shangri-La where nothing was wrong and everybody was playing nice together. That was the deciding factor and nobody really wants to talk about it in the media, nobody.

How Much of a Hint Does it Take Netanyahu?

 

Trump and those around him as well as many others in and out of the media and throughout the blogosphere have been all but screaming repeatedly that Israel had the blessings of the White House to annex all of Judea and Samaria. There have even been those, and we may as well join this group as it is our hope as well, that Netanyahu could exile Mahmoud Abbas and his entire band of merry terrorists and nobody in the White House would utter a peep of objection. There are teeming commentaries all puzzled and confused at why Netanyahu and the rest of the Israeli political leaders are so filled with trepidations over doing what needs be done. It is as if they believe that Israel is loved and respected throughout Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and in all the leftist and Arabist capitals of the world and acting to annex lands which belongs to Israel by International Law and even the United Nations Charter in Article 80 would somehow make Israel disliked, unfriended on Facebook or something equally horrible. News flash; much of Europe hates Israel and are already making plans to boycott Israeli goods even with Israel doing little or nothing. The world is going to condemn Israel for simply existing and nothing the leadership does or does not do short of marching the Israeli Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims into the Mediterranean Sea will make any difference. There is nothing standing between Israel and a solution to the Arab difficulties simply by allowing the Palestinian Arabs to rule themselves in each city and community where they currently live and grant them alien resident status. Israel could end the laws restricting the sale of land by Arabs to anybody other than another Arab and even give a financial award to those Arabs who desired to move elsewhere. All of this could be done and within a few years the world would adjust to the new reality, especially if the lives of the Palestinian Arabs improved, something all but inevitable once the crooks running the Palestinian Authority (PA) are removed from the scene. That would be even more true should the world continue their financial support even at one quarter the level now being granted. Simply removing the United Nations and European Union NGOs and other organizations and replacing them with local elected Arab governance in each location and having Israel establish infrastructure and other basic services and government services would serve the Arab Palestinian population bringing them quickly near the same level as the rest of Israel in opportunities and services.

 

We have repeatedly spelled out how Israel could liberate the Arab Palestinians and even allow them a path for becoming Israelis if they so desired. In the meantime allowing them to elect new leadership is a healthy first step to solving many of their problems. Secondly, having their education system teach skills, math, science and the rest of a regular curriculum instead of using the schools for fomenting hatred and terrorism would ready their youth for a rewarding future filled with opportunity. Giving them a culture based on living and promise rather than on death and destruction and removing the oppressive governance and dictatorship of corruption and violence which has been imposed upon their society under the PA and Mahmoud Abbas. When one discovers that Mahmoud Abbas and many of his cronies have embezzled hundreds of millions of dollars and Euros since taking over the PA after Arafat died with billions of dollars and Euros in Swiss accounts which his wife now lives a royal life in Paris, their anger should assist in the impetus to drive them into exile. Right now if an Arab living under the PA is accused of selling land or even an apartment to a Jew they can be sentenced to death. What is even worse is that once one is accused of such a serious criminal act under the Jordanian Law which Israel allows the PA to impose, whether they are found guilty or not makes little difference. What is horrifying is that despite Abbas not allowing a single execution for committing this crime there have been numerous individuals executed by enforcers often from the PA security forces or simply their fellow Arabs simply because of the anger quipped up by their peers. Removing such a societal violence and the rewarding encouragement by officials and replacing them with normal civilization based on law and order enforced fairly with a high level of normalcy will alter their subconscious normalcy to that of a productive society. With time and positive enforcement the Arab Palestinian society can be returned to a civil and ordered society based on the greatest good rather than their current societal norm of hate, violence and destructive behavior. None of this is possible without the initial step of Israel taking responsibility for all the people living within her borders and granting to all the same opportunity for well-being, wealth and a normal and healthy life equipped with an education which allows for the pursuit of a happy and productive future.

The sooner that Israeli leadership takes responsibility and gives equal opportunity for a productive and normal future, the sooner such will become the norm for both Palestinian Arab and the rest of Israeli population. The biggest problem is the Palestinian Arabs are now forced to live under corrupt and unhealthy governance and are being forced by the world to undergo such negative reality. The Palestinian Arab population should be annexed and granted the same opportunity, education, societal normalcy and employment granting them a positive future free of the PA oppressive governance, then they will emerge in time to accept the normalcy and join in striving for a better future and adopt normalcy. So, what are you waiting for, Netanyahu, somebody to spell out that you have the world’s permission to do the right thing for all involved? That is never going to happen as the world does not want Israel to succeed. The world wants Israel to fail and be destroyed. Israel will not be rewarded for any act and each time Israel gives in and surrenders even an inch, the result will always be demands for a yard or two. Israel cannot give enough to make the world accept her amongst the nations of the world. Israel surrendered the entire Sinai Peninsula and the world turned around and claimed that Israel had not sacrificed for peace. Israel returned all of the area of Lebanon after the attacks by Hezballah and the world demanded the Sheba Farms and the Golan Heights, both areas which were never part of Lebanon. Israel gave the PA Gaza and they lost it to Hamas. Now they demand Israel give Judea, Samaria and half, the old city and Temple Mount included, of Jerusalem to the same PA claiming that Israel has not given them a chance at governing themselves. What about giving them Gaza? The world acts as if Israel gave Gaza to Hamas, not the PA. Does anybody believe that after giving the PA all the lands that constitute the area Jordan occupied illegally will be the end of things? Trust us when we tell you that if we give the PA all the world is demanding for them the next thing will be a demand that the Negev belongs to the Bedouins or that the Galilee belongs to some other Arabs or that Israel should accept eight to ten million Arab refugees and allow them to be instant citizens. The world will continue to demand until Israel is subsumed by its enemies and will not allow the Jews to retain even Tel Aviv. The world wants to have their nationless Jews living at the behest and under the kindness or hostility of others. Truth be told, the world will not be happy until the Jews completely disappear by whatever means they must find. The only means the Jews have of honestly surviving is to annex all of the lands we were promised by the San Remo Conference and a series of other treaties and charters, period. Once we have all of our land we can then work for the betterment of all the people within the borders including the Palestinian Arabs living as legal resident aliens, like many Baha’I, Philippines, Indians and others who have been hired to assist the many elderly to reside on their own despite requiring a legal helper to do shopping and other services. These people are allowed to reside in Israel as legal resident aliens thus legal but not voting residents of Israel. So, Prime Minister Netanyahu, be bold, act now, stop putting off that which most of the population of Israel would advise, if only you would ask. If you refuse to act, then allow a new leader who is willing to act for the future of Israel to lead. We believe you can find it within yourself to act and there is no requirement to ask Donald Trump even though he is the President of the United States. You do not need to wait for him to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, you annex our ancient core of the homelands, all of Jerusalem has been annexed but the world is still attempting to steal away half of our eternal capital including the Temple Mount, the Old City and the Jewish Quarter. The world will never say we can have our land, any of our land. Declare our sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and send Mahmoud Abbas and his merry band of crooks back into exile. Be bold like your military background should have granted you as an ability somewhere in your memory. Reach back and grab your boldness and do what you know is the right thing and annex our land and send that nemesis back into oblivion. Do it now as we have the coverage in Washington D.C. as he signaled during the campaign. We all but guarantee that once you annex that which is ours and guarantee that for the future all of Jerusalem will remain in the hands of Israel, then we will find an American Embassy being constructed in Jerusalem before you know it. Not only will you feel better, you will be elected for the next decade and we will not even begrudge you all the ice cream you can eat.

Super Tuesday Results with Maps

 

We are going to hear much about the Republican race being between Trump and Rubio trying to minimize Cruz as the Republican Party can only beat Trump if they can put every last non-Trump Vote to one candidate even if it was a more popular Donald, that being Donald Duck. Cruz and Rubio are going to continue to split the voters leaving Trump slowly eclipsing them both right out of the delegate count, especially as the winner take all states start appearing rather than the proportional representation they are facing now. The results in the Republican primaries will not change the fight but simply serve to fortify the three man race plus Kasich will claim he has not been ruled out and he will come roaring back once he wins Ohio which is becoming more unlikely as the delegates are divided up and him just missing threshold after threshold. But the Republicans will continue as advertised but the Democrats the fat lady may be singing.

 

Probably the stake through the heart of the Sanders campaign was losing Massachusetts as well as every other state looking being eclipsed in the eye. Bernie Sanders may as well thank his supporters and workers for their faith and hope in him and recognize that H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary has won the nomination with little if any potential for doubt. So, now H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary can campaign on a low keyed style taking extra care to not say anything which might be used against her in the general elections. All H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary need do is keep her mainstay base of minorities to remain committed and have a level of excitement to produce them at the polls in November. She can float trial balloons testing how they play with the public. Bernie Sanders cannot claim to have any hope when the only states won so far are New Hampshire, Vermont, and Oklahoma while losing Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. These were the results in the early states and the projections look very much like same as above with H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary winning and winning. We could go with so many ways of trivializing the results claiming the fat lady is singing, turn out the lights the party’s over, or put a fork in him, he’s done. So, what is next for H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary?

 

The questions now will revolve around who will H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary choose as her running mate, her Secretary of State, her this, that and the other. That will be the news cycle over and over as they try to keep H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary in the news reminding everybody how popular H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary is with so many different demographics making it appear so clear that she will win the all-important elections come November. They will mostly avoid those death subjects such as her e-mail server, her mishandling of top secret and more secure information, Benghazi, telling lies to bereaved parents about why their children gave their lives, and every other scandal she hides from the public with the complicity of the mainstream media. This election may hinge on whether or not H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary will be indicted which may remain hanging over her head with many claiming the election is also about whether or not H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary wins and avoids a messy trial dominating every new hour. The Democrat Party now has the luxury of knowing who their candidate will be for the election in November. This can also be a downside as they will face the challenge of keeping their candidate in each news cycle in a positive light avoiding the obvious sinkholes.

What did Super Tuesday do to the two parties can be summarized in two words, H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary and Trump. That will most likely be the candidates the American public will have to choose between. This may be a more interesting race than the pundits might believe as both parties will be facing a single challenge of getting out their voters. Both candidates will necessarily need to announce their preferred appointments to the major cabinet posts such as to define them beyond their own persona of simply thirsting for power. This election will necessarily be a referendum on which of the far from perfect candidates, Trump and H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary, will be capable of bringing forth the votes while leaving the base for the other side from awakening. If history is any measure, H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary would be more likely to manage such a feat as the Democrats have traditionally been better able of getting their voters to the polls and pulling out the close races but that will be made more difficult with their having a wounded candidate in H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectillary just as the Republicans apparently will also have apparently an injured and bloodied candidate in Donald Trump as he will have challengers continuing through the remainder of the primaries until he freezes all others out in the delegate count. Let the games begin.
