The Why of Donald Trump, This Time, This Place
Right-thinking people have tried dignity, and statesmanship.
Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as Ronald Reagan?
And the results were always the same.
The Big Q: Why?
The Big A: Well, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a street fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky.
I do not find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Hussein Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson, Missours in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
I do not see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.
I do not see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.
Yes, Mr. Hussein Obama was “articulate”, “polished” and “presidential” whatever that means, but in no way was he “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”`
Since the rise of the Love children of the 1960’s the Left has been engaged in a war against America.
To the Left it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.
It has been a war the Left has fought from the 1st day with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies.
The violent take-over of the universities from then to today.
The problem is that, over those years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a shot at anyone who stands in their way, we on the Right continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.
With Donald J. Trump, this all has come to an end, a Key reversal in the pattern, and painful in the extreme to America’s Marxist progressive left.
President Donald Trump is America ’s 1st Culture War President, he has rocked the boat that was set sail under Globalist George HW Bush (41).
And during wartime, “dignity” and “collegiality” simply are not the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.
Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.
Honest Abe Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”
US Army General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, anti-Semitic. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Delano Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be 50 years into their 1000-yr Reich.
President Trump is fighting to Make America Great Again, and put America First.
And what is really delightful, is that, like General Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent Bastard, I read your book!” I will take no prisoners!
And, not only is President Trump fighting, he is defeating the Left using their own back alley tactics.
That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the book so essential to the Marxist’s Left’s war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Hussein Obama Admin, and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s (nee Rodham) senior thesis.
It is a book of such pure Evil, that, author Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer; aka “The Devil.”
President Trump’s tweets may seem rash, not Presidential and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Saul Alinsky suggested his followers do.
First, instead of going after “the fake media” and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, Pesident Trump has isolated CNN, MSNBS and the others, by making it personal.
And, as Mr. Alinsky suggests,President Trump employs ridicule which Mr. Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”
President Trump’s Tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. One where they need to respond.
This leaves them with just 2 choices.
They can either go high and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can 2X-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat President Trump with 2X their usual hysteria and demagoguery.
The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.
It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news that keeps the unabashedly repressive Left alive.
Imagine, then if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Hussein Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church with indisputable ties to Louis Farrakhan.
Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of The Hussein Obama Admin’s weaponization of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and The Hussein Obama Administration’s cover-up.
So, I would like to live in a time when our President might always be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”
We are not in those times.
This is War, a painful Culture War, and it a war that the Left has been fighting without real opposition for the 50 years.
Donald J. Trump is the right President for these times.
The Trump Policy: America First
The Trump Mission: MAGA
And what ever it takes + tax and license will be done, and that may be why Gitmo is still open.
Have a terrific weekend.
