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.

when nobody cares is priceless. Negative Nancy the Nut. Her facials throughout the speech were plain odd and freakish.

Yes, the panic is all consuming, especially considering that only a week ago, none of the Left's news channels wanted anything to do with the story.

Superb

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.

Racist Divisiveness

These types would have offered their stern condemnation of the Boston Tea Party due to the trespassing & property damage.

Worse, the Boston Tea Party was sexist, racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, misogynist and divisive. So too the Declaration of Independence.

As I type some loathsome fry-quacking moronnial professor is telling Tucker that Yoga contributes to White Supremacy. If I weren't doing it already, I'd take it up.

re: tweet

Sam Pierson's picture

Someone seems not to have yet caught on that public righteousness is always & everywhere just so lame.

These types would have offered their stern condemnation of the Boston Tea Party due to the trespassing & property damage.

It's a trait that seems to attach itself to, & mark out, the second rate. The regular third rate guy really can't stand them & the first rate have no time for the tedium.

Jordan Peterson names it 'ideological possession.' Some souls will never escape it.

If you're unlucky to serve under such, they'll forsure get you killed.

Anyhoo, President Badass continues magnificently to put a sudden end to 30 years of lame America. And might just pull it off. Good times, really good times...

Great SOTU

Excellent speech by the President. I can't wait to hear Obleftivists shreek in horror on their podcasts.

The appetizer comes from Quent Cordair's tweet (that Amy and Yaron "liked"):

Meanwhile the Atlas Society's Jennifer Grossman (nice Dollar Sign pin btw) gave good and reasonable interviews on FOX before the SOTU. Let's see what they'll say about it once they've heard it:

That was a great line ...

Very pointed. Lots in the audience seemed to miss it. Or maybe they couldn't believe he said it after the pre-show hype about reaching out and all that BS.

Fantastic SOTU from a fantastic POTUS.

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.

Future Freedom

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Donald Trump continues to function mostly as an implicit and de facto pro-Western, pro-American, pro-capitalist, pro-libertarian, pro-liberty politician. I think the possibility today of being a successful explicit and principled one is quite a bit higher than most people previously assumed, including me.

Here's an interesting article claiming that part of the reason the Iranians are currently rising up against their religious enslavers is due to President Trump:

Good summary of Trump's achievements ...

Lindsay Perigo's picture

... by Ben Garrison:

https://grrrgraphics.com/trump...

"Naturally, to those possessed with ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome,’ all of his accomplishments are the acme of evil. This is to be expected. The left’s precious socialism and political correctness are finally getting the pushback they’ve long deserved, thanks to President Trump.

"There remains much work to be done. Our infrastructure needs rebuilding. The wall needs to be built. The Deep State Swamp needs a lot more draining. Hillary still needs to be locked up. President Trump remains the best man for the job."

As usual, a plethora of misstatements and false speculations attributed to me. I haven't the time or interest to deny things I never said or address obscure references I don't understand.

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!

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Just let Trump be Trump. Kyrel recently told us the allegedly complete inaction on the wall was "inexcusable." When I pointed out how far advanced the planning is ... blank-out. Kyrel?

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 ...

http://www.breitbart.com/londo...

... and the Islamisation of America is proceeding apace—and there are only about twenty people on earth with the courage to speak up.

Bullshit

Olivia's picture

I hope he hangs tough. I especially hope some libertarian somewhere somehow gets a hold of him and gives him some semi-solid philosophy and values to stand upon, and guide him thru, these next 3 years.

He's doing magnificently on his own philosophy and instincts - the Libertarians failed considerably to counteract the Gramsci-fication of their whole fucking culture. They're too busy legalising dope and philosophising about open borders. Idiots. Not men of action, just wankers.

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.

Wise up Kyrel.

Implicit Slight Libertarian

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Trump has been in office for almost a year now, and so far he seems to have stuck to his guns, and is about the same person he was when he was elected. He hasn't much become corrupted or deterred. Independent conservatives and progressives still tend to like and root for him, while establishment conservatives and progressives still tend to fear and loath him.

I hope he hangs tough. I especially hope some libertarian somewhere somehow gets a hold of him and gives him some semi-solid philosophy and values to stand upon, and guide him thru, these next 3 years. Smiling

It still tickles me...

Build that Wall

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Lindsay -- That internet link may be defective. Maybe try: http://www.independent.co.uk/l...

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.

Hurrah!

Bruno is right. Build that damn wall! Trump has been in office for almost a year and thus far he's built NOTHING. Not an inch. That's inexcusable. He doesn't even have any written or formal plans, so far as I can tell. NOTHING.

Illegal immigration seems way up these 6 months or so.

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.

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.

Freedom Leading to Wealth

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?

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?

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!

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

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.

Donald Trump's Victory

Chanakya's picture

Ed Hudgins you are right.

Trump simply could not loose because of the large crowds that he was attracting. Where ever he went during the campaign there used to be thousands people to greet him. Whereas Hillary was finding it difficult to gather even 100 to 150 people for her shows.

All Trump related posts in social media were being liked and shared by tens of thousands of people, whereas Hillary was being neglected.

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. I believe that there was some kind of attempt made to steal the election from Trump. There is no way he could have won by such small margin. His margin of victory would have been much-much higher if this were a totally fair election with NO illegal voting.

I am personally horrified to even think what would have happened to the world of ***The Clinton Foundation*** had become the president of USA. They would have wreaked havoc around the world. Look at what she did during the period when she was Secretary of State. As a President her potential to do damage would have been higher.

It is a good thing that Trump was able to win. Now there is a "small chance" that modern civilization will survive. We will not be lost to the socialist and religious zombies.

Calling Trump's triumph

Ed Hudgins's picture

You were out there early with calling it for Trump!

Perhaps one bit of evidence you appreciated better than others was the real enthusiasm for Trump who was unlike Obama talking down to people as if they were stupid or Hillary mouthing bromides and the usual "I'll promise you anything, just elect me because of my gender." Trump supporters were rightly disgusted with the direction of the country. As they watched their health insurance premiums skyrocket and the economy remain soft, they were ready for someone to say "Enough of this BS!"

I will note that a vote change of .25% in Michigan and .75% in Pennsylvania (a total of about 54,000 votes our of 136,000,000 would have given the election to Hillary. So after the fact we see the election was still close.

Trump will have to earn reelection with deeds. So far, his actions on energy, environment, regulations, telecom, and much else is putting him on just that path. And if he continues with the message we heard in Warsaw, his position is strengthened further because he is indeed defining the central issues in the moral battle of our age.

And as Linz notes, the contrast with a vision of a civilization that writes symphonies and celebrates achievement vs. the mindless destroyers in the streets of Hamburg (and American cities) could not be more stark.

I predicted Trump victory in May 2016

Chanakya's picture

I am sure Ed Hudgins will back me on this, if he still remembers the discussion that we had in his Facebook timeline in May 2016.

In that conversation on Hudgins's FB timeline I said that Donald Trump is sure to win. No one belived me then, but I continued to stick to my point and I said: "Neither heaven nor hell can defeat Trump. He will win 100%." Smiling Smiling

I also predicted Trump victory in a discussion on Greg Salimieri's timeline in May 2016. There also no one believed me. They said that Trump cannot win because he does not have the numbers. But I insisted that he will win. Smiling Smiling Smiling

A bonus ...

... was to hear the crowd chant "Donald Trump" and "USA!" More audible in this version, which includes some preliminaries including Melania's introduction. These are joyous times:

Then on to Hamburg where The Filth were out in force, as if to underscore everything Trump said in Warsaw. I'm surpwised Yawon Bwook wasn't there demonstwating. Wemember, Bwook-Filth called Trump "the villain of our time." Has that POS been wemoved yet?

"The West will never be broken."

MAGA!!

Trump's speech...

Olivia's picture

about Western Civilisation proves he really gets it. The comment: "The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?" … was nothing short of profound (and Churchillian to boot) - that right there is the essence of the battle in front of us. It's just so good knowing that there is now an American President who will fight that fight with everything he has.

Meanwhile, on another battlefield of civilization versus the destroyers, a group of envy-driven moral midgets attack the creators. I hope more American Jews wake up to the fact that the left hates them for their virtues.

Magnificent! It's Western Civilization vs The Filth. Now there's hope for the former.

Trump did talk about borders and defending our civilization. It's more than you'd get from most conservatives.

Some clown at the Wapo (Bezos Blog) said it was a "dog whistle" to "white nationalists."

That being said, I believe that Trump should recognize the annexation of Crimea tomorrow.

Syria would be better off under Assad. And the Russians need a Mediteranean port.

You miss the essence of his speech. It was standard pro-establishment foreign policy. It was extremely anti-Russia which is wrong. Russia has acted with more moral legitimacy than America. Trump was spouting pure bullshit with his NeoCon take on the Ukraine. Yes he uses better language than Bush or Obama but the spirit of it is the same.

He campaigned as Pat Buchanan but he is governing as a typical Republican. He should hire Buchanan as the head of his foreign policy team.

Trump in Poland: “The West will never, ever be broken!”

Trump in Poland, a powerful statement worthy of Reagan:

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? …

“Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield. It begins with our minds, our wills and our souls….

“Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph….”

CNN despair over Georgia GOP win

Ed Hudgins's picture

CNN despair over GOP Georgia win. A Dem challenger in a special election to fill a congressional seat was touted by the left as the "Trump slayer" who was going to turn back the tide of Republican wins. He lost and the Republican lady won. The looks on the faces of the CNN wing of the Democrat Party says it all!

Trump's pretty words and indirection

Mark Hunter's picture

The Paris agreement debate is a lot of fuss over nothing, both from pro and anti-Trumpers.

1. There never was a treaty. A treaty to be in force requires 2/3 of the Senate to vote for it. Obama never asked for a vote.

2. The treaty had no enforcement provision whatsoever.

3. Except for Nicaragua and Syria every country on the planet agreed to it, because everyone knew it was meaningless.

Recall that Trump has extended Obama’s “dreamer” immigration program, DACA and the end of April he told “dreamers” they should “rest easy” because he was only going after “criminals” – the usual cuck Republican line. To repeat, he refuses to reverse or even stop DACA.

Covering Trump with praise over nothing doesn’t help our cause. He likes to be liked. He needs to be covered with abuse for what he is not doing.

Of course Trump is infinitely better than Hillary would have been, but so far – I haven’t given up hope – he has been disappointing. The appointment of Sessions was a great move, Gorsuch not so good – he has cucked on immigration earlier in his judicial career. Linz is right to suspect he will cuck again when it comes to adjudicating the Muslim ban – which itself was a milquetoast act of little consequence. Maybe Trump did it as a tiny first step of a larger program, one can always hope.

Get past the Illuminati stuff

I don't mind Rense. Yes, he overdoes the conspiracies but I'm not fanatical with right wing sources. Plus, I like Rense's sense of life. He's clearly a good man. You can tell just by listening to him. Now that I know he is a Mario fan that makes sense. He interviews *many* knowledgable and informed people on many subjects. The fact that he has the Alex Jones illuminati disease is something I can overlook. Give me Rense over Yaron Brook or Harry Binswanger any day.

I also think its important to not just look at "philosophic premises" whereby you always decry "those damn empiricists!" It *is* important to bury yourself in the trees and get the details right. This is something basically NO ONE in the Objectivist movement does. This was something that Rothbard excelled in whereas Rand took no notice. Rothbard knew all the major power brokers that both influenced (directed actually) and benefitted from the "altruist and collectivist" public policy; ie the Rockefellas, the Morgans, etc. These powerful men and families *did* influence politics, and in a terrible way. Businessmen were not "America's most persecuted minority". Far from it. Big businessmen have often been crony scumbags who were influential in the rise and dominance of Progressivism.

This is another reason why I can't stand the Objectivist movement. It blindly idolizes "value producers" and NEVER looks at their very large seedy side; ie "Steve Jobs was a heroic value producer who changed the world!!" instead of a more sober appraisal of an icon of the Left (much in the way that Elon Musk is another Leftist favorite). Jeff Rense is someone who is interested in the details. I like listening to those people to balance out the "premises only" gang.

Trump indeed making the right decision...

Ed Hudgins's picture

Trump indeed making the right decision and offering powerful explanations. Elites here and around the world are universally condemning him. But he offered cogent arguments and if those who disagree want to do the same on the other side, let's hear them. But global warming alarmists offer package deals that fail to address all of the underlying questions and assumptions:

*Is the planet actually warming?

*By how much?

*Is the warming unprecedented or just part of a pattern that has occurred over thousands or even millions of years?

*What is the evidence that human activity contributes to warming?

*By how much?

*What are the demonstrable downsides of warming?

*What are the demonstrable benefits of warming?

*What is the likely impact on temperature of the various draconian measured proposed in the Paris Accords, Al Gore's plans. Etc? [Here Trump nailed it, pointing out that the impact would be a fraction of a degree.]

*What would be the demonstrable harm and downsides of such policies? ["Yooooge," as Trump would say.]

*Would the harm fall disproportionately on certain countries, i.e., the U.S. and EU ones?

And these questions don't even address underlying ideologies, dogmas and motives. Trump made the right decision, but the battle is far from over. It will be fought in state houses, city council meetings, civic organizations, schools (the indoctrination that gave rise to the fact that so few people ask the questions above continues), the media, churches, and elsewhere. It's time to go on the offensive with an "America First" energy plan that could set the model for any country that wants affordable energy and that wants to flourish.

I wrote a few years ago "that the renewable energy surcharge will increase the electricity bills for Germans by 20 percent, just to start; Germany already has the highest electricity prices in Europe. Germans also must cover the €20 billion costs of generating €3 billion worth of electricity via solar, wind, and biogas plants. (Gee, I thoughts Germans were good at math!)

"Further, the flow of 'green' electricity can vary erratically depending on weather. Thus, German factories have been asked at times to shut down when the electricity supply didn’t correspond properly with use. Germany is recklessly, bit by bit, destroying its economy and harming its own citizens as precaution against an improbable future harm."

Trump has taken us off this dangerous path.

Pittsburgh, not Paris!

Trump's best moment yet. Now wait for Bwook-Filth to pwattle about "economic nationalism."
