The Morning Report - 8/21/19

patttrump.jpg

Good morning, kids. Middle of the week and the officially sanctioned Democrat Party anti-Semitism remains a hot topic, but it's President Trump's reaction to it that underscores one of his greatest strengths: His willingness, even eagerness to fight back. From our Politics section, Rabbi Aryeh Spero writing in American Greatness:

...People mischaracterize and belittle Trump's tweets as un-presidential and unbecoming of his office. He can be crude, to be sure. In reality, the president is using the platform [Twitter] to deny and challenge the assertions of the people - media manipulators and rabble-rousing liberal politicians - who would disdain and debase this great country... For truly, when Trump's opponents smear him over his position on immigration, borders, nationalism, patriotism, or they call him a racist, they don't mean just him. They are talking about you and me and anyone who holds similar positions...

[UPDATE: Several commenters are correct to take exception to the Rabbi's declamation that the president "can be crude" without citing one single incident of his alleged crudeness. I agree with them. He's far from crude. He's honest. Paraphrasing Harry Truman, "he gives them the truth and they think it's hell."]

The President's taking to Twitter or any available microphone on any given occasion to defend himself, and really all of us as the good Rabbi states, has got the Democrat-Left-Media and their cuckservative confederates completely apoplectic. It's not that he offends their sensibilities and all that rot. It's because by going after them, mostly with all the subtlety and sophistication of two sets of brass knuckles and a cutting torch, he cuts through their lies and distortions, exposing them as the frauds they are and forcing them to defend the indefensible. That is something that's never been done, with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan. And if polling and anecdotal evidence showing significant defections among blacks, Latinos and other heretofore solidly Democrat constituencies is any indicator, it poses an existential threat to that party's electoral competitiveness and, what they considered as little as three years ago, electoral domination. Hence, open borders and now the "white supremacy" myth.

It's a two-fisted attack by Donny Two-Scoops; expose the lies and then make them commit multiple self-inflicted dick-punches or rake-steps in trying to defend the indefensible. All one has to do is look at the way Dubya or the past two GOP nominees handled their attackers; curl up in a ball, beg for mercy and blame their own supposed base for all their alleged sins. No more. Hell, they never once called out their opponents or policies, as was SOP for the GOP. And that was half the problem. In not responding to being tarred and feathered as the illegitimate child of Snidely Whiplash and Adolf Hitler, too many Americans were led to believe that the party of slavery, racism and in-utero (and now ex-utero) baby killing were the good guys. While it certainly helped to have virtually the entire media and academia from K to post-grad in their back pockets, especially in the pre-alternative media age, it was no excuse to not fight back. Note that it's assholes like George Will who out of one side of their cake-holes claim politics ain't beanbag while out the other proclaim fighting back in any manner, let alone the way the orange-comb-over gavone from Queens does, is beneath the dignity of elected office. But I digress.

Trump rhetorically kicking over the tables of the moneychangers in the temple I think is going to be, or has the potential to be, a sea change in American politics going forward. But, delicious as it all is, it wouldn't have been worth jack shit had his policies, especially the tax cuts and tariffs, not created the greatest economic boom in a century. That too was a slap in the face to the globalists who both poo-pooed it as "a magic wand" and because it disproved their own previously unassailable economic theories. More crucially, it threw a monkey wrench into their plot to destroy our economy and serve us up to some sort of Soros-led world dictatorship on a silver platter.

As I said, it has the potential to be a political sea change, but since sadly, Trump cannot be president for the next 40 years, the big question is will his way of doing things be the spark that ignites Trumpism as a political movement or is it going to be a mere flash in the pan (cue lyrics to We Don't Need Another Hero, in the bridge just before the sax solo)? Whatever the future holds, things cannot and will not go on as before, not with the Democrat Party fully exposed to a much broader audience as the evil tyrants we always knew them to be. For sure, come the inevitable day they do recapture the White House, "interesting times" will most definitely ensue.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

27 Perez is having fund raisers for drug money. As I listened to my wmal radio hosts wonder why Perez was doing such a thing as having a fund raiser in Mexico, it suddenly hit me that it's for the drug cartels. OF COURSE they can fake having "an american" bring in the dirty cash as necessary, I have no doubt that the cartels have "americans" they can use.

How about "bleeding from her whatever" re: Meghan Kelly? Calling people psychos and losers? It's funny, but that's not typical of an official presidential comment - they like to dress these insults up in euphemisms and in-jokes.

Trump says the things many people think, but are now afraid to say. He says the things we say among ourselves when we're being brutally honest, expressing irreverent humor. As shocking as it can sometimes be, it is a much needed course-correction to the PC/Lefty euphemisms that they use to hide their ugly, hateful ideas.

I see it as, he's saying out loud, what everyone else is thinking but too timid to say. For instance, that anti-semitic congresswoman who was using her grandmother as an excuse to go cause disruption in Israel, but then chose not to go. He said "the only person who won in that situation was her grandmother," or words to that effect. People are not used to Republican politicians being so outspoken. It might seem abrasive, until you find yourself laughing your butt off at it.

72 Term limits is an issue that I have completely changed my mind on. I used to believe that if people wanted to continue to vote for self-absorbed, murdering idiots like Ted Kennedy, fine. If they wanted him out, all they had to do was vote him out.

This no longer seems to be working, now that people have abdicated their responsibilities to be informed and smart, and not simply vote for free stuff. In retrospect, perhaps it is not term limits that need to be imposed, just voting laws that say you have to have "skin in the game": pay taxes, not simply receive gov largess. Not sure how that could be accomplished IRL.

They don't know who the Squad is. They have heard of Robert Mueller but don't know what he has to do with anything. They don't know that Ted Kennedy was a Democrat. IF they even know who he is.

109 It's interesting that reporters who are not very smart to begin with and have zero knowledge of history are criticizing the President on Greenland. Throughout our history land purchases have been greatly criticized and yet have added greatly to our nation. See The Louisiana Purchase and Alaska.

Greenland is actually a smart move. It is strategically located (Thule is there for a reason) and provides a buffer against moves such as the Russians attempt to dominate the Arctic. It is resource rich and has great economic potential. The president did laugh some of it off, but I think it was a calculated, gutsy move.

116 And yet, mocking the suburban soccer/wine moms who are swayed by that stuff isn't going to bring them back.

Explaining how the Old Grey Hag's "1619" project is nothing but lies isn't mocking soccer moms. America was not founded on slavery and everybody knows that.

"Fisking" was taking apart Progda's lies in a detailed way. There was no anger in it, just a plain statement of facts. It can be done to anything they publish, but it fell out of favor for a while during Bronco Bama's Reign of Error. We could use a renewed effort to dismantle their propaganda and expose the lies of the left.

Progressivism is a gigantic lie, but since they have control of the media, it's not easy to shout back at them. But it must be done. For example, "All white people are racists" is a damnable lie. Should we let that false assertion go unchallenged or push back against it?

It's likely that behind the scenes and quite discussions were going on regarding the purchase to the point that it merited a visit. Someone leaked the story and the PM of Denmark panicked and said publicly it was an "absurd" idea.

Trump said fine, visit is off. Oh and that visit probably had a few financial goodies(besides the purchase of greenland) attached to it.

Rabbi: This is an excellent post except for one thing.

You state that "he can be crude, to be sure." Please cite one example of him being crude, especially compared to the absolute ocean of bile and filth that has been hurled at him since day one. The fact is he's not crude; he's blunt. And he's not the one instigating the attack but defending himself and as you rightly say all of us. It sounds crude because no other Republican president or other politician has ever defended himself before. In any case, as Rush Limbaugh so rightly points out, this is what fighting back looks like. Sure, it's not pretty. But it's absolutely necessary.

My dad was one of the Army Corps of Engineers who engineered the ice tunnel. I have pictures of him escorting the queen of denmark through the tuel in the late 50s. If you look at a map, Thule is in listening distance of Russian ports and monitors their subs and ships. I'd bet there's a reactor there now, although I don't know that.

They have it coming. And I relish it. Whether that translates to the general LoFoVo remains to be seen, but I do believe he is making people open their eyes.

That the thing Trump's critics miss when the characterize him as dumb and impulsive. He didn't just randomly attack Cummings. He was responding to locals' pleas for help AND striking one of his biggest critics (win-win).

The same goes for Tlaib and Omar. How much you want to bet he's read Paul Sperry's 2009 book about CAIR working to infiltrate Congress? He's not just reacting to their theatrics du jour, he's attacking the bigger CAIR/MB plan to break the US-Israel alliance.

1) disloyal to whom? The US? Israel? Other Jews?
2) you also muddy the waters if your saying they being disloyal to ISRAEL when criticizing left wingers who accuse Jews of dual loyalties.

258 Re: PDT's presidency as a sea-change in American politics.

*drags out soapbox and Bessie The Dead Horse too*

I sincerely hope that the Trump presidency signals a resurgence of the Tea Party. The TP merely wanted a return to honest government, wanted the Constitution to be followed as it was written (not "interpreted" by leftist judges legislating from the bench), and wanted sensible spending and fiscal policies (which means a drastic reduction in size, scope and expense).

In the current political climate in DC, this is considered a radical thing. In truth, it's more a throwback to how our government was intended to operate before the infestation of Progressives (who are really Marxists and Communists bent on our destruction from within. Think Cloward-Piven.)

PDT said once that the Tea Party was a good idea, but got screwed by the establishment GOPe. Just because the TP doesn't receive the press coverage it once did doesn't mean the ideas have gone away.

The Tea Party needs to take over the Republican Party in the same way that the Progressive Movement has taken over the Democrat Party. It's my prayer that President Trump will be the beginning of that. If it doesn't happen, we will be no better than any other world power in history. We need to prove that America is truly the exception by revitalizing our core beliefs and driving our domestic enemies out of our political system. Our national decline need not happen.

329 I don't think Trump is "crude" in a lewd way; I think his vocabulary and way of speaking to be crude -- fundamental, without flourish or elegance. Like a blunt instrument rather than a scalpel. \\
*****
Actually, his vocabulary is decidedly NOT crude. He keeps it simple and direct, which is only "crude" according to the politically correct rubric. Indeed he's quite graceful in his off-the-cuff comments. Because he has a natural affinity for human beings, a sharp sense of their basic goodness and equally their rottenness.

Biden on the other hand IS crude -- a man of zero natural grace.

The President specifically nominates a Chief Justice. That's how Rehnquist became CJ when Burger passes or resigned. IIRC, Rehnquist had to go through another Senate confirmation hearing to be promoted.

Oh yeah every snowflake today would be on their fainting couches at almost every line that was said.

So, Trump talks like men have always talked in locker rooms. Men, not boys. He just does it in public now. (and he is actually way restrained, compared to how we were)

And here's something snowflake's don't know - before this generation, working men have ALWAYS talked that way. I'd lay odds on that being true all the way back to the work gangs pulling rocks up to the pyramids.

440 On Greenland. Trump is no fool.

The time for wooing Canada passed quickly, though, and the U.S. recognized Denmark's sovereignty over Greenland in 1917 after it bought the Virgin Islands, then a Danish colony. But soon enough, the world's biggest island acquired strategic importance for the U.S. again, this time as a base for warplanes during World War II. The atomic bomb made Greenland even more strategic. In the pre-missile years, it was especially important to have a base for bombers near an adversary's borders, and Greenland was close enough to the Soviet Union that the U.S. could threaten all of European Russia from it. It was also an ideal base for reconnaissance flights.

The U.S. tried to buy Greenland again, but a 1946 offer to the Danish government fell on deaf ears, even though the island housed only about 600 Danes at the time. As it turned out, the U.S. didn't need to buy the island. The formation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, of which Denmark was a founding member, and a 1951 bilateral defense agreement allowed the U.S. to establish the military presence it needed in Greenland.

448 Top of my head EU history (looking things up is cheating).

The Common Markets (note the plural) began as free trade zones for coal and steel among six European countries in 1956. The big ones were the UK, France, and Germany.

The idea was that if France and Germany became economically interdependent they might not murder each other so much.

Additional markets were added as were additional countries until it became a behemoth with a parliament but not a lot of super-sovereign power. It was called the European Community (EC).

In 1992 in Maastricht they decided to all band together and deliver national sovereignty to this instutution which would now be called the European Union (EU). The masterstroke of the EU was to scrap national currencies in favor of the Euro, which has always traded as a near equivalent of the Dollar.

The only smart thing ever done in the EU is the UK deciding to be all in except for that Euro thing. They kept the Pound. The possible second smart thing will be the UK Brexiting.

467 When I did oilfield work, a lot of times the crew would start the day in
the locker room, getting into our coveralls. Locker room talk was
funny, and harsh, and of course everyone knew you wouldn't talk like
that if women were around, but those were also some of the funniest
group conversations I've even had. Oh yeah every snowflake today would
be on their fainting couches at almost every line that was said.

The machine shops I worked in were like that, too. A lot of ball-busting in jest. Ahh, good times...

468 Yeah, so I was right and some of you can eat shit.

There were just way to many disparate societies with vastly different work ethics, if they had any at all. No unity, or not enough to effectively counter us.

And once the control-freaks and corruption set in, that was the beginning of the end. Brexit should've happened earlier. I hope we can help them, I'd rather have them as MFN instead of our sworn enemies the Chi-Coms.

477 Proof his brain is functioning:

BIDEN: "A lot of you know the Delmarva Peninsula, it's all three feet above water, a lot of great fishing and hunting, duck hunting. And I walked through the estuaries, and a hunter guy said 'Damn, Joe, what did you take my gun for?' I said, let me ask you, those cop-killer bullets, I said, how many deer you know wearing Kevlar vests? Raise your hand. You really need one? And hell, if you need 100 clips or 30 clips in a weapons, then you shouldn't be hunting, man! You're dangerous! You're dangerous. (applause) I'm not joking. You know, he'd say to me, take my shotgun. I said, I have three - now I have five, because my son died and I have three of his. That's five shotguns, but they're under lock and key. You leave your key in your car out here and a 14-year-old comes along, picks it up and takes it off and gets in a crash, you're liable. Well, if you leave a weapon sitting on the table with no trigger lock on - "

478 and of course everyone knew you wouldn't talk like
that if women were around,

Some business women I know say the most crass things when no men are around to hear. Talk about swearing like a drunken sailor, if they can't say f_cking with gusto in every sentence they aren't able to get their point across.
And what they regularly have to say about other women and about sex would make Trump blush.

Posted by: goodluckduck at August 21, 2019 09:56 AM (V8zw+)

When? Context?

The question remains -- even if so, was it "crude"? Weren't others already making veiled but no less crude deprecations of his manhood?

And what is truly "crude" -- treating your own followers like idiots, slaves, sheep and victims and your opponents as even further beneath contempt, or essentially recognizing the common dignity and humanity of all and demonstrating a natural grace of values?

Trump is the OPPOSITE of crude.

Posted by: Dan Smoot's Apprentice at August 21, 2019 10:16 AM (H8QX8)

488 Trump HAD to talk about his equipment because he was going to be running against a woman and any implication (especially from her) that his member wasn't up to scratch would have been political death because there is no answer for it. Especially against a woman. He would have lost the election. He was preempting the Left who were already rumbling about it and getting ready to deploy it at a specific time.

498 t"he big question is will his way of doing things be the spark that ignites Trumpism as a political movement or is it going to be a mere flash in the pan".

That will be decided by the Republican party - not Democrats. The GOP elites see the anti-American Democrats are the toxic sea that raises all corrupt politician's yachts.

As the Democrats batter America the GOP punches back 1% as hard. Then campaign on that 1%. Result: Government grows, produces more power and more money for the bipartisan Corruptocrat Party, aka the Establishment.
