28NOV2018 – My Take on Things

Here’s a quick review of where everything stands.  The President comes out of the mid-terms losing the possibility of getting things easily through the Congress because of the Democrat capture of the House.  But he gains a reliable Senate majority for appointments to the Supreme Court Bench and the Cabinet.  Having disposed of Jeff Sessions and seeing the Mueller investigation blind-sided by a Manafort defection on his plea bargain it looks like the President is maneuvering to a place where he can deal with Mueller.  His temporary appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Attorney General is angering the Progressives so it must be a good move.  The strong stand the President is taking at the southern border is the right move and I hope he holds firm on that front.  It will win him support and help make clear that a wall at the border is a necessity.  It might even force the Democrats in the House to support funding out of fear of losing re-election in 2020.

The economy continues to move forward and unless you have all your money in the stock market (which is finally seeing a long overdue correction) this will be a very Merry Christmas.

The bad publicity and federal investigations examining anti-conservative deplatforming in the social media and on-line circles hasn’t materially helped our side very much yet.  But the comments by the President and other government leaders have had some effect on Silicon Valley and if there is more than just threat associated with this talk maybe we can see some pushback.  It would be nice if paypal and the other fund transfer vendors are slapped down and forced to play nice.

And finally, the continuing awakening of Americans to the reality of the assault on their way of life and even their identity is moving apace and is having a powerful effect on attitudes and actions.  Many people have gone from mindlessly following the proclamations of the left-wing media to seeing for themselves who is on their side and who is selling them out to the progressives.  This doesn’t involve the Millenials unfortunately, they are pretty much hopelessly in thrall to the Narrative and will continue to be the most loyal proponents of the Progressive path.  But I think it’s apparent that older folk will have to help steer the next generation (Gen Z?) into a better mode of thinking.  That is something I have thinking about myself.  Hopefully other are too.

All in all, we go into December in a better place than we were last year and with a clear path to improving things on all fronts.  It still remains for President Trump to resolve the Mueller situation.  But he seems much better suited than I to decide how that should be done.  And he needs to get his Justice Department working on bringing relief to all of us suffering at the hands of Progressive tech barons and lower court judges who attack conservatives whenever they can.  And I think he will.  So, paint me optimistic and here we are at the quick sprint to Christmas and New Year.  Ho, ho, ho.

I can live with all that. Pretty sound take all around. Nobody has seen Trump yet on the national scene at his best comeuppance for those who try to play dirty politics with him. The left better tread carefully, they are all front of the bus and everything right now talking smack how they are gonna use the house as their private muck racking machine. They are dumber than a box of rocks, don’t remember, as POTUS he gets to see shit about anyone nobody else does. And he has all those yet to be released papers. Wanna take bets… Read more »

Indeed. Art of The Deal. A very salient point right there, now that you brought it up. Its certainly war of winning hearts and minds, and Trump has the market cornered. He offers something. Tangible things. He’s a happy warrior. He treat dirt people with dignity, the true only equality which exists. Merit. Its not rocket science. If your not hive collective NPC or consumed with Trump derangement syndrome, its not difficult to find value in what he has accomplished. Definitely his use of social media and owing the news cycles he has full control to deliver his messages by… Read more »

I was wrong about Nancy Palsi, she won speaker by like 92%, had it transposed.
Doubling down is a feature of the leftists. What is it about the botox skank of the left coast elites that is attractive to them. Got to be some Hvy Dty corruption.

Moar! They are hoping to turn it into the brown virtue signaling/reparations pig trough from the looks of the ascendent crop of third world shithole marxists who displaced the old red diaper babies in November who are long in the tooth and big on the offshore bank accounts. Once the Normies get a good local look at what they been ignoring, some interesting dynamics from that newly awoke demographic is going re-elect the God Emperor. But then again, nothings awoke them yet. Maybe all’s gonna wake up has, the rest will when the death squads come knocking at 3am for… Read more »

Be some internal coup right there. The lefts golden inviolate rule to never attack fellow democrats is being violated. I think that is an indication there’s a larger power struggle than we know with a koolaid carrying media gatekeepers. The new kids aren’t mincing words about anything. How’s the older guard to counter their appeals to the never-assimilated’s? It is messaging they must like to hear from their fellow non assimilating congressional invaders. Non of them have an iota of care about the dirt people of the country who has given them shelter, to them america is something which must… Read more »
