Obama is out and the rebuilding begins!

We all have our favorite moments in the inaugural speech. What are yours?

I was pleased that Trump said, "We stand at the birth of a new millennium ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow." Sounds like he's been listening to Peter Thiel. Obviously I hope the private sector leads the way. This future-focus is what the economy needs and these aspirations reflect the best of the human spirit.

CONGRATULATIONS, PRESIDENT SCHUMER!

6:30 AM - Mar 24, 2018

@AnnCoulter
MASSIVE DEFENSE SPENDING to induct transgenders & build BIG BEAUTIFUL walls ... in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and Tunisia.

6:35 AM - Mar 24, 2018

@AnnCoulter
IT'S 3-D CHESS! (There's never going to be a wall.)

GOOD GOD! Will @realDonaldTrump talk about ANYTHING but defense spending???? Per Obama: The 1980s called & they want their foreign policy back.

6:38 AM - Mar 24, 2018

@AnnCoulter
This would be like Reagan signing a bill that hiked taxes, slashed defense spending -- but spent gobs of $$ on the Teapot Dome scandal.

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

to save money

Brant Gaede's picture

To save money don't save wealth in a fiat currency.

If you buy a share of stock for X dollars and the dollar goes to hell all else being equal qua inflation the dollar value of the stock will go up, say, to 2X. If the dollar disappears the stock will be revalued in a new or different currency. This is one way to buy a true asset.

Future Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid can and will only be paid for by the government writing checks in the money it manufactures at will. That will continue unless the government is destroyed.

Cutting government spending without the compensation of cutting taxes and deregulation of the economy will merely cause a recession. Most of the economy is attached to the tit of government spending. The deficits will continue regardless.

Cutting federal government spending per se is not a good thing. (This is only true for the federal government.)

As an aside, raising interest rates, as has been going on now since December 2015 and will continue, does not make the dollar stronger. Since it increases the price of money that in itself is inflationary. (Inflation being price increases.) That's why the dollar went from 105 euros to 123 today in that time period.

Money For Everything But The Wall

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Not only are Trump and the Republicans devastating the American economy with their drunken-sailor spending, but not a penny of it goes toward building the southern border wall. The prospects that even one percent of it will be built seems about nil. Angry

https://www.commentarymagazine...

excerpts:

Does Trump Want the Wall or the Betrayal?

"President Donald Trump loves to talk about 'the Wall' that he claims will be built on the U.S-Mexico border. On the campaign trail, Trump wasn’t shy about reminding anyone who would listen that the sprawling barrier of his imagination was thrusting ever skyward in defiance of its critics. As president, Trump continues to tout the virtues of his wall, though he’s less theatrical about it. This month, Trump traveled to California for a photo shoot in front of a series of imposing prototype wall segments. The evidence suggests that Donald Trump clearly wants to make good on his promised border barrier. Right? Maybe not. When it comes to the 15-month legislative fight over the wall, the president has had a number of opportunities to declare his mission accomplished. He has conspicuously passed on all of them.

"On Thursday, the president once again insisted that defeat was some rare species of victory. After he won a meager $1.6 billion from Congress, explicitly allocated to existing border fencing and levees, Trump claimed that this was just a down payment on the wall. This is the second time in as many years that Congress has provided Trump with a pittance for border security, and it’s the second time Trump has taken the deal.

"The 'rest will be forthcoming,' he assured his supporters this week. When, however, remains a mystery. Along with a permanent resolution to the status of the nearly 700,000 DACA beneficiaries, Trump had requested from Congress $25 billion in a border-security trust fund that would bankroll the wall’s construction. Democrats did not object to the price tag but insisted that DACA’s resolution must consist of a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million DACA-eligible illegal immigrants. That was it; there was no counter proposal from the White House. That’s where negotiations with Democrats ended..."

All Is Forgiven!

Betrayal

Lindsay Perigo's picture

I am sick to the pit of my stomach at Trump's capitulation to The Swamp re their abominable budget. He tweeted that he *had* to waste money on Dem-Scum boondoggles in exchange for the Wall (which he didn't get) and military build-up. I replied:

You didn't have to waste money on Dem giveaways. You chose to. You sold out. You caved. You choked. You embraced The Swamp. Sanctuary Cities? Planned Parenthood? Chuck Schumer's pork? Record deficits? You betrayed your base. Shame on you! One-term president.

He's now nearly as low as Obleftivists in my book. And he was doing so well. I guess we were lucky to get one year of things as they might be and ought to be. Now, business as usual. RINOs and Dem-Scum rule. Bwook the Cwook will love it.

If your blood doesn't boil, you're a waste of space.

Trump Wants to Murder Innocent Drug Sellers

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-...

Excerpts:

Trump urges death penalty for drug dealers

"US President Donald Trump has called for drug traffickers to face the death penalty as part of his plan to combat the US painkiller-addiction epidemic.

"He outlined the proposal during a speech in New Hampshire, a state badly affected by the opioid crisis.

"Mr Trump said his administration was attempting to change the law to execute drug dealers..."

*******************************

Murdering innocent people for no real reason -- for merely selling a badly-wanted product which someone else freely and happily elects to purchase -- is stunningly bad political policy and profoundly evil morally. It will be interesting to see if Donald Trump -- this pragmatic man of no political philosophy, who rules without political principles to guide him -- will be able to improve and enlighten himself on this over the next few days, weeks, and months. Trump evidently thinks about, and tries to solve, social and political problems based on simple reason and common sense. It will be fascinating to watch this no-nonsense, direct-to-the-point, no-political-agenda political leader -- along with his handful of Objectivist and libertarian advisors -- try to correct his horrific error here.

Anti-totalitarian tariffs

Lindsay Perigo's picture

I'm interested to hear Ed Hudgins' take on this, since he's an economist and yet unbeholden to rationalistic dogma. Of course the Obleftivists are already going berserk over the tariffs—see Airhead Amy. No doubt Islamo-Marxist Obleftivist Bwook will be scweeching away soon enough. But are Trump's claims about EU/Chinese tariffs on US goods true? Maddeningly but unsurprisingly, no media (part of The Filth) seem willing to investigate. Journalism is not what it was when I was a journalist. Of course, even if his claims are wrong, it remains true that a free country shouldn't bolster a totalitarian one via the very free trade that it, the latter, is ideologically opposed to. Trade imbalances as such between nations don't matter a damn, all things being equal, but if totalitarian nations are manipulating "free" trade to prop themselves up, all things are not equal. The repressiveness of the Chinese regime has only become worse since it entered the WTO (and why does free trade require a global bureaucracy?!). Big mistake. No more!

If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!

Donald J. Trump

Year Two

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Trump did pretty well in his first year in office. Smiling For his next year he seems to be about to hike the deficit sky-high, spend 1.5 trillion dollars on an infrastructure boondoggle, implement protectionist tariffs and start a trade war, give amnesty to a lot of illegal aliens, pass a new "entitlement" program for mothers, take away some gun rights, not actually confront North Korea, not actually build the southern wall, not actually lock up Hillary, appease China, appease Muslims, appease tyrannies worldwide, continue to spy heavily on all Americans, carelessly raise government spending wildly, and more. Trump does his best, relying upon direct reason and common sense, but he has no pro-freedom principles or philosophy to tell him that the above policies are morally and practically wrong. Sad

After

Brant Gaede's picture

After Rand it devolved to power and prestige then to money. It was set up that way--by her. It was foreshadowed by Peikoff displacing Branden as her right-hand man (1968) then Peikoff being the beneficiary of her estate (1982). Peikoff then went off the rails when Barbara Branden published her Rand bio/memoir (1986). The bio deserved criticism, but he was too high above such, never mind he was swimming in rot.

Authoritarian Yaron Brook

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

At 35:16 of Yaron Brook's radio show he says: "Trump is deep down an authoritarian." At 35:36 Brook says: "[Trump]'s got the mentality of an authoritarian."

This exactly describes Brook, Peikoff, Binswanger, Schwartz, Amy Peikoff, etc. They are all intellectual authoritarians. They're cultists who wish to dictate to servile philosophical followers. They do not wish to discuss or debate the issues or philosophy. Thus these evil, phony Objectivist leaders are grossly antithetical to the nature and spirit of philosophy, reason, Objectivism, and Ayn Rand. Indeed, they're utter enemies of them.

But Brook is so stupid and slimy he glibly yammers on, and hasn't a clue about this, or about what he's secretly intellectually confessing! Shocked

p.s. I posted the above to Brook's radio show. I bet he censors it within a matter of hours -- not days. He certainly will not address the important issue I raise.

Trump is basically pro-Western and pro-American. Not steadily or based on principles, but still, he somewhat transcends Right and Left. His aggressive, winner, alpha-male persona and ambition partially tells him which is the best of both.

Richard G McGrath's picture

Appalling manners by the stony-faced Democrats sitting in the front. Utterly lacking in class. Overall I thought this was a very uplifting address from President Trump. I can forgive his economic nationalism, and other deviations from a free market agenda, because of the overwhelmingly positive message he continues to put out. I am just loving this presidency after eight long years of identity politics and anti-Americanism. Tax cuts, massive deregulation, gangbusters on oil production, strengthened ties with Israel - what a first year! Just need to do what Reagan failed to do: start slashing government spending. That said, these are good times. Amazing energy for a 71 year old, unbelievable really.

Obvious and Unmentioned

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

The obvious point here -- which not one person has mentioned, to my knowledge -- is Trump was condemning countries and regions, not races. If people interpret that to mean he's condemning blacks and Hispanics then they are the racists. They're inadvertently confessing that they think the low quality of the countries and regions Trump mentioned is a direct or inevitable product of the low quality of the people inside it.

Centipede's Dilemma, or, "Let Trump be Trump"

Jmaurone's picture

"He's doing magnificently on his own philosophy and instincts - the Libertarians failed considerably to counteract the Gramsci-fication of their whole fucking culture. "

I was just thinking that, yesterday. All too true.

If the Libertarians were to "get a hold of him", I doubt the result would be to give him" some semi-solid philosophy and values to stand upon, and guide him thru, these next 3 years". As Rand said, "It's earlier than you think."

It would be more like the parable of "The Centipede's Dilemma", where a jealous bug asks the centipede to demonstrate how it walks with 100 feet, resulting in the centipede tripping over himself, and forgetting how to walk.

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

"The Centipede's Dilemma" is a short poem that has lent its name to a psychological effect called the centipede effect or centipede syndrome. The centipede effect occurs when a normally automatic or unconscious activity is disrupted by consciousness of it or reflection on it. For example, a golfer thinking too closely about their swing or someone thinking too much about how they knot their tie may find their performance of the task impaired. The effect is also known as hyper-reflection...".

The Libertarians, at this point, would be the bug that gets jealous of the centipede, who has already done more in one year than they have in decades, to have an impact. He's not Galt, but to paraphrase THE DARK KNIGHT, "he's not the hero we deserve, but the one we need, right now."

Brava Olivia!

Today Trump got his tax plan through. Bwook, Ghastly and the rest of Obleftivist ARISIS and possibly Kyrel will say that because it doesn't make income tax voluntary tomorrow, Trump is "the villain of our times" and a "cancer." Bwook is a cancer. Obleftivism is a cancer.

As I type I'm watching Jonas Kaufmann's "My Italy." Jonas is no Mario, just as Trump is not John Galt. Doesn't make Jonas "the villain of our time." FFS!!!!!

Trump is, on the evidence thus far, better than Reagan, easily the greatest president in my lifetime. The question is, is he too late? Gramscification has now enabled the Islamisation of Europe, aided and abetted by Obleftivism, and manifested thus ...

I hope like hell nobody 'gets a hold of' Trump - just let him keep doing what he wants to do. Let Trump be Trump! He is buying America time so it doesn't turn into Europe - that is: until his time is up and you guys go back to another Dem-scum administration in keeping with Gramsci, as Yawon Bwook et al would have it if they get their way.

America seems like Germany to me: overwhelmed with guilt. Americans hate what happened to blacks in their past, just as Germans hate what happened to Jews, Gypsies, the crippled, etc. in their past. Both nations seek to make amends via current immigration self-immolation and demographic suicide. But the barbarian immigrants will benefit little long-term, while the native Westerners will suffer a lot.

I say: Keep the savages out. Instead, tell them in cold, harsh terms to embrace economic capitalism and social libertarianism. And tell the foolish, depraved, guilt-ridden, self-hating Americans and Germans the same.

Elan Journo

Bruno Turner's picture

He weasel-worded a tacit approval of the decision in order to virtue signal his distaste for Trump while maintaning his unconditioned support for Israel, the Jewish ethno-nationalist state.

Trump is the greatest US President since Reagan. He is a strong masculine and Alpha male. Weak men instinctively dislike him. They are intimidated by him.

The "horror" Beta males experienced when Trump's private conversation about "pussy grabbing" came out was emblematic. You could immediately tell by people's reaction whether they were men with big cojones or thirsty Beta male white knights who have no idea whatsoever of how women act around a confident and dominant masculine force.

I'm not talking specifically of Journo here, I'm just making a general point. His weak and undecisive style in this video does not however particularly exude testosterone fumes.

Vis à vis ethno-nationalism, I can tell you right here that he is against the secession of Lombardy and presumably Catalonia and Scotland as well. Ethno-nationalism for whitey is wacist. Jews on the other hand are a "special case". Never forget that.

It's marvelous to see how all the forces of evil, weakness, and appeasement worldwide are united in opposing this move. If America really does moves its embassy to Jerusalem, which is questionable, it will be a symbolic victory of civilization over barbarism.

Way of the world

Brant Gaede's picture

The Moslem fascists use their Jerusalem claims to wage war on Israel, but the Muslim religion has no historically based claim on the place. I understand it's not even mentioned in the Koran and the one vague reference is actually to Medina.

The left hates Israel like the Nazis hated Jews. For PR reasons genocide as such isn't mentioned, but a great portion of world Jewry is in Israel. So just go ahead and clobber Israel.

POTUS moves US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Islamosavages caterwaul in protest. Trump is making Reagan look like a wimp!

Freedom Leading to Wealth

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Lindsay -- I think all of Trump's executive-fiat deregulation of the economy caused that 3% growth. Tax simplification and repealing ObamaCare might raise the growth to 5% or so. But Trump can't do this on his own. So will the anti-freedom, pro-welfare state Republican and Democrat legislators actually go for it?

3% GDP Growth last quarter ...

... what do the economics-obsessed Never Trumpers have to say about that?!

Just to be clear: culture trumps economics, which is a truth OrthOists and Obleftivists will struggle with. They should try to keep up, since the truth of it is already manifesting far more quickly than their thought processes.

Where's Trump's Plan?

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

It's a shame Trump can't come up with his own medical care plan to promote, fight for, and possibly triumph with. Since Trump is famously a pragmatist and non-ideologue with few principles, maybe he can gather together many experts on medicine and doctoring and then have them debate it out. Hopefully Trump and everyone will gradually -- over many months -- realize the value of liberty and capitalism in health care.

But...lacking virtually all skills in philosophy and conceptual, principled thinking, How can President Trump come within even a million miles of TRUE freedom in health care?

Macho Military

Lindsay Perigo's picture

I think transgenders can fight in the military, and do virtually everything else, as well as regular folks. I can't imagine what "tremendous medical costs and disruption" Trump is referring to.

The costs of sex "changes" now borne by the taxpayer since the regime of Barack and Michael Obama.

Regardless of matters of cost, I contend transgenders shouldn't be allowed into the military, and neither should actual women. The defence of rights requires the toughest of the tough. Only real men (gay or straight) should be entrusted with it. Military operations shouldn't be compromised because of periods and inherent sub-optimal physical strength!

Wait for Bwook to denounce Twump for the twansgender ban.

Oh, and where would Ayn Rand have stood? Anyone want to say, with Bwook?

I wonder ...

whether they fear the 'disruption' of her (http://www.reuters.com/article...) fighting her way right into the seals or the 'costs' of pink uniforms she'd then be entitled to ; P
Don't they have anything KASSier to do ... or is it just (as Kyrel suggests) a diversion and everybody is slobbering it up ...

I don't differentiate between commies and Nazis. But I see your point. I don't see the schools identifying that synonymity. Transgender types are not fit for service due to their psychological issues. I wish Trump would stop pandering to god-botherers in the video Linz put up, but hell, isn't he a breath of fresher air?!

Absurd and Monstrous Clubs

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Thanks for the (surprising) link, Ed! Commie clubs in high schools are depressing to think about. And yet they are forming in America's commie ("public" i.e. government) schools. So it's appropriate.

But do the public (sic) schools allow Nazi clubs too?

Either way, I bet the libertarian clubs are far larger, and will soon dwarf their pathetic communist rivals. Smiling

So Odd

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

I think transgenders can fight in the military, and do virtually everything else, as well as regular folks. I can't imagine what "tremendous medical costs and disruption" Trump is referring to. I think any gender-change surgery the trans folks may desire is properly considered 'cosmetic' or volitional -- not a battlefield or training injury -- and thus not something the taxpayer should ever have to fund. This ban on a category of people with civil rights seems like a tiny but odd, inexplicable, pointless, doomed act of bigotry by Trump.

(But it is raw meat for the press and punditry, thus maybe it's camouflage or misdirection for something good which Trump is really up to!) Eye

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow...... ....Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming.........victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.

I've stopped listening to him. A couple weeks ago he was attacking Jesus, Christianity, Christiniaty's influence on Europe. It's always "we aren't the left, we aren't the right," Trump and Clinton are two sides of the same coin, etc.

I still listen to Amy. She's less dogmatic and her show discusses news stories, so it moves at a good pace. Both of them should drop the callers though. Very few of them have anything to say.

Evidence?

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Did anyone else hear the broadcast Anoop refers to? Did it indeed contain a glimmer of sanity? I can't imagine the person who exhorted us to stop fearing Muslims would suddenly "sober down." His problem is not lack of sobriety, it's a treasonous commitment to evil Obleftivism.

MOGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Change in Objectivist attitude to Trump

Chanakya's picture

I don't know if you all have noticed, but I think that the philosophers at the ARI are now waking up to fact that they can't sustain their irrational and dogmatic opposition to Donald Trump for too long.

By the videos, i can make out that they attacked Trump quite viciously at the OCON2017. But since then they seem to be sobering down.

In his last week's podcast, Dr. Yaron Brook defined why "only" America was great among nations and what it would really take to Make America Great Again. I think he sounded quite balanced, philosophical and politically reasonable after a long time.

If Dr. Brook is changing his stance on Trump, then rest of the herd is sure to follow. Make ARI Sane Again! (MASA)

On Trump

Chanakya's picture

Lindsay you are right.

It is quite surprising for me that a nation like US is unable or unwilling to cleanse its electoral system. Democracy, by itself, is a highly *flawed* model of governance. And unfortunately, now US is no longer a Republic, it is a de facto *democracy.*

Only thing worse than a democracy, is a democracy where there is illegal voting. So the priority for the Conservatives should also be to cleanse the electoral system.

Anoop

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Yes, the margin of victory was very small, but I think Trump is making a serious point when he says that lot of people voted for Hillary illegally.

Fascinating that 16 states are refusing to cooperate with the voter fraud investigation. Millions of "votes" at stake, I suspect. The Filth will be outed in the end, though—no thanks to ARISIS, who applaud, sponsor and employ The Filth and who are themselves The Filth.
