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.


Oh dear, Hillary!

Our Filthy Media

The Filthy Media in NZ just re-publish Washington Post garbage. Wapo and Stuff are components of The Filth. There is no journalism, just sneering, snarling pomowankery:

Yes, Reaganesque & Jeffersonian in one...

“In America, we believe in the majesty of freedom and the dignity of the individual. We believe in self-government and the rule of law. We prize the culture that sustains our liberty, a culture built on strong families, deep faith, and fierce independence. We celebrate our heroes, we treasure our traditions, and, above all, we love our country. Inside everyone in this great chamber today, and everyone listening all around the globe, there is the heart of a patriot that feels the same powerful love for your nation, the same intense loyalty to your homeland, the passion that burns in the hearts of patriots and the souls of nations has inspired reform and revolution, sacrifice and selflessness, scientific breakthroughs and magnificent works of art.”

Soaring rhetoric!
Stunning speech all round.
Even the funny bit at the beginning was handled beautifully by him - and the crowd applauded in appreciation, not mockery as our filthy media are spinning it.

As Good As It Gets

This is as good as it has ever been in my lifetime, which includes the Reagan presidency. Note the reactions of various components of The Filth as they get called out:

Anti-Rand Institute shill speaks for Pelosi!

gregster's picture

Grant Jones has kindly alerted us to young Stuey Hayashi's latest perversion of common sense on F*c*book. For laughs.

Stuey says:

I had not anticipated the day on which I would be rooting for Nancy Pelosi to reclaim her position as Speaker of the House.

__
Nonetheless, that day has arrived.

When asked why:

I want Congress to consider impeaching President Trump. For that to happen, the Democrats need to reclaim the House.

Mike Pence is much more ideological than Trump, but he also has a better understanding of the separation of powers. He is accustomed to the ACLU challenging him in court, and he doesn't have a public meltdown every time a judge thwarts his plans.

Much ridicule follows.

Stellar Piece about Ghastly McCain

Lindsay Perigo's picture

"Yesterday the country was forced to endure an extravagant display of the Uniparty’s self-regard, and of the media’s boundless dishonesty, when everyone who represents everything that is wrong with America gathered in the National Cathedral for the funeral service of John McCain. Suddenly, politicians and news outlets joined together in a repulsive, over the top, thoroughly embarrassing display of propaganda regarding a military hero and a political cretin. There was to be no dissent because the occasion was weaponized to disparage President Trump. ..."

The Fate of Trump

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Trump has an infinite number of flaws: He's a slimeball, liar, political moron, vain, petty, small-minded, mean-spirited, etc. But he's also an amazing and stalwart hero holding out against an incredible array of verminous enemies with hardly any help. No Democrats or mainstream Republicans truly back him. Maybe only 40% of the American people support him. And they're quite noble to intransigently do so! Shocked

But how long can he hold out? And with all that malicious criticism and so little moral support, why would he want to? He's an absolutely beleaguered pro-Western, pro-American, pro-civilization paladin and road warrior.

But his future isn't bright. And his replacement will likely be far inferior and do far worse. Sad

The hysterical Left now want to declare Trump a non-person and a non-President. See the 1984 thread to understand how The Filth, including ARISIS, are making Orwell come true:

The fourth--it's Trump!

Brant Gaede's picture

IMHO the United States has had three seminal Presidents and one great seminal one, the great one being George Washington. Lincoln was the second--and he was bad--and Wilson was worse. Trump is on track to be the fourth and I think the second great. What Lincoln did was mostly confined to this country, but at the cost of 700,000 American lives (half to disease). That was 5% of the population. Wilson screwed up the Great War and made it World War One and the end of war peace process which ran over Germany like a bulldozer and made WW Two possible--possible though not necessary.

Stock Forecasting

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Studying the stock market is fun. No, I don't know too much about it. Yes, Trump's current trade war is scary. Yes, Doug seems quite correct that the rather stunning ten-year bull market in America is due for a fall.

Still, the market is always doing something new. So you never know. Trump may keep American stocks rising for the next few years, or more, due to all his recent economic deregulation. Maybe his seemingly top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, can convert Trump and other important folk to semi-capitalism. Even without this, high tech stocks continue to seem promising.

Michael Hurd

gregster's picture

He's a great writer regularly publishing his opinion from an intellectually honest perspective. That "capitalism will be blamed" trope is also regularly heard from ARI and its second hander 'shills.' Keith Weiner comes quickly to mind as having tried that argument from ignorance many times on F*c*book.

Obleftivists of course are for intrinsicist rights for savages, and this is why Trump annoys them with his old-fashioned common self defense sense. Not PC? Not the old PC that's for sure.

Maybe

Doug Bandler The Second's picture

In a jackass, half-ass way the world's understanding of the truth and value of capitalism and economic liberty is growing from China, to India, to Africa, to America.

I hope you're right. And forecasting the future both politically and economically is very difficult. Libertarian economists are always perma-bears. I agree with that in one sense; the foundations of our system are deeply corrupt. But there is alot of wealth in America and the 1st world. The markets might not collapse and there might not be another recession just yet.

But the stock market expansion is getting very long in the tooth, second longest bull market ever, and the fundamentals look very bad (ie looming yield curve inversion, etc). Trump campaigned on the economy being a bubble. Now he is taking credit for that same bubble. That's why I say his language is dangerous.

Great piece by Anti-Obleftivist Michael Hurd

"If you really cherish and love the ideas of individual rights and freedom, then you ought to fight for those ideas while supporting the next best things available in our candidates — and eschewing the totally toxic, self-destructive totalitarian brew of the left."

A Semi-Trustworthy Recent Rise

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

I don't think America is necessarily in an economic bubble -- despite the remarkable ten-year rise in the stock market since the 2008 Great Recession. In a jackass, half-ass way the world's understanding of the truth and value of capitalism and economic liberty is growing from China, to India, to Africa, to America. Even during the current rather dreadful trade war initiated by America's president. Thus the current economic semi-boom may continue for many more years. Maybe even thru all eight years of Trump and beyond! Smiling

Dangerous Speech for Trump

Doug Bandler The Second's picture

The growth we're seeing is illusory. This is a bubble. Trump no matter how noble he is for challenging the Left is still an economic illiterate. My great fear is that this bubble will burst before he's re-elected and he will lose to a truly evil leftist. Maybe Bernie but maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And she is a white hating racial socialist that would initiate the race war. She also wants to break open the floodgates for non-white immigration; a favorite policy prescription of Objectivists.

Sam Pierson's picture

The US President, or - to use his official title - Our God-Emperor, is taking a break from his "Liberate Europe & Great Britain Again" tour with a cup of tea with the Queen. Rumour is she'll thank him & the US for once again coming to their aid, and enquire a little about his curious & rather unorthodox methods. She'll also commend him for doing in one week what took FDR & Eisenhower four years, & Reagan eight.
The President is expected to be modest in his response.

Dick Morris summarises the IG report

Richard G McGrath's picture

In a less-than-busy half hour at work today I re-read the thread below and realised how much I had missed the first time around. Firstly the video clip of the choir at Ronald Reagan's inauguration, which I have just watched. I wasn't so much moved by the video but by the comments below it on YouTube which showed the love so many Americans still have for Reagan. And so many of those adoring comments came from people with Hispanic names. Made me think that if Trump pushes ahead with lifting America back to greatness, his support from Hispanic Americans will soar and he will romp home against whichever criminal the Democrats nominate in 2020.

The second thing I noticed which had me laughing was Sam Pierson's paraphrasing of Shakespeare: "Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this son of New York." Thank you, Sam, it made my day!

Finally, thought I would share this video this morning from Dick Morris, famous for his pastel coloured shirts, which neatly sums up the IG report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Hatred

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Why do people hate Donald Trump so much? Why do these football and basketball championship teams do something which is unprecedented and truly ugly, which is to refuse to show up at the White House to be honored? Even Ronald Reagan wasn't hated so much, maybe.

Here's my guess as to why Trump is so hated: More than anyone else ever before -- and in the tradition of Milo and Pamela Geller -- Trump is joyfully at war with the post-modernist values of political correctness, multi-culturalism, diversity, inclusion, sensitivity, etc. He confidently mocks and insults them and their supporters. And, in his own inarticulate, unprincipled way, Trump is also pro-Western, pro-American, pro-white, and pro-male. This drives the energetic, ambitious, post-modernists wild. They're besides themselves with amazement, indignation, horror, loathing, and sputtering rage.

Woo-hoo!

I don't give a damn about the Gobby talk, sacrifism etc. I'll ecstatically settle for this after the 8 years of Obafilth, endorsed by Obleftifilth.

"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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

To President Badass!!

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.

Bwook the Cwook and the rest of ARISIS will be hysterical.

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.

If Trump ...

... really said that about "shithole countries" than he's a bigger hero than I thought. Next thing he'll be talking about "dinky little savages." And yes, it's great to see The Filth having paroxysms in response. Is anyone monitoring Yawon?

A great question. The Filth's reaction gives away their game.

... 2018 promises to be The Most Interesting Year Ever in the History of the World. I give the good guys a 30% chance of coming out on top. Steven Mallory's "drooling beast" is ubiquitous, prowling through the world at every turn. It's even prowling through Objectivism in the form of ARISIS. We are up against not just the hatred of the good for being the good but the worship of evil for being the evil, every which way.

2018 opens with a hiss and a roar...

North Korea talks to South Korea - and asks if its athletes can compete at the upcoming winter Olympics.
Bannon shows his grossly indiscreet colours by "opening up" to a scummy Washington journalist/writer who has TDS, earning him the Trump designated title of 'Sloppy Steve' - methinks that one will stick!
The FBI opens a probe into the Clinton Foundation... finally.
What will the rest of the year bring?? I feel it's going to be one hell of a ride. Smiling

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:

to see President Trump's great tweets in support of the protests in Iran. I bet their evil regime is quaking in its totalitarian boots.

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."

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

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.

But certainly Trump and every other political leader could do far better if guided by knowledge rather than instinct.

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.
