Losing the Base?

President Trump's firing of Steve Bannon and others, such as General Michael Flynn back in February, and having a White House with an abundance of generals and closet Democrats/globalists,  appears to be base-deflating.  The president should ignore the distorting "fake news" media to a great extent, and perhaps take a page from the late President Calvin Coolidge, nicknamed "Silent Cal," who was good at ignoring the press of his era: although, from President Trump's perspective, it should be just the press/media that he ignores, more or less; not the base or the base's issues, as the base is essential to the president's re-election.

Musical Chairs in D.C.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is doing a great job as Attorney General, except for his civil forfeiture policy, so it is really dismaying that President Trump is making life a little or a lot uncomfortable for the attorney general.  Trump doesn't have a lot of friends in D.C., so why he is criticizing one of his biggest boosters since he began his run for the presidency two years ago is truly mind-boggling. 

I may agree with Trump that Sessions shouldn't have given the globalist Democratic Party what they wanted by recusing himself of the Russian matter, although I'm not aware of all the legal angles in Sessions' decision.  If anybody should be fired, it is the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, the guy who put "Agent Mueller" on Trump's case.  Trump should fire Rosenstein, but unfortunately it would be too risky, politically, to fire Robert "Agent" Mueller, who as journalist Sean Hannity reminds us, has all kinds of conflicts of interest…

May Day Crises

The globalist-inspired May Day hooligans who rioted in the streets of Western U.S. cities are truly a part of the growing internationalist factions who are trying their level best to remake America in their own ultra-liberal/radical image.  The home-grown cultural liberals who are fostering this radicalism and "anything goes" philosophy have no clue about the Frankenstein they are creating for themselves, but especially for their descendants in the not-too-distant future.  For instance, with their "do-gooder" policies, do they really want an America that has population numbers the likes of India or China?  Well, damn near none of these liberals are emigrating to either of those countries, so if they succeed beyond their wildest dreams to turn America into the type of countries they wouldn't step foot in, let alone live in, don't be surprised if Trump era nostalgia, even by them, will one day be the new craze.  Give credit where credit is due, however, at le…

Hollywood Cranks

Watching the Tucker Carlson Show on FOX-TV the other day, Carlson was needling Hollywood-types for promoting the "open-door" policy and being unabashedly critical of President Trump.  He was pretty much making the point that rich Hollywood does not have to compete for jobs, housing, or generally deal with the other, more or less, onerous circumstances of basically granting settlement rights to the worldwide multitudes outside of America.  Good point, Tucker.

Not-That-Liberal Liberals

One of the most surprising developments about the presidency of President Trump is seeing all his sanctimonious critics ranting and raving so early in time, particularly the so-called liberals and militant left-wingers who should have photos of their leading spokespersons next to the word "hypocrite" in the dictionaries.  Even the New England/Texas miscreants & crime family, the Bushes, had a little honeymoon period, but not Trump for some reason. 

The so-called left has always been the nastiest of the various political spectrums that I've witnessed in my time in politics since 1976: much rancor, disregard for decorum & courtesies, and little if any tolerance for dissenting views. Former third party politician & consumer activist, Ralph Nader, has implied much the same thing, notably speaking about Democrats.

It's been amazing these past few days that some of the liberals have even criticized the president for saying the truth regarding our country's p…

Media Nonsense and Lady Liberty

A domestic publication had President Trump blowing out the torch of Lady Liberty, and foreign publications have their own variations, cartoonish, distorting or otherwise, that reach the same conclusion, which basically feeds the narrative that Trump's tightening up a bit the open door policy, though hardly closing it, is somehow radical or unprecedented.  However, the open door policy is basically something that has been practiced in the last few decades, as America from 1920 to 1980, more or less, had a modest to moderate √©migr√© policy and never saw the likes of the current globalist fever during those 60-or-so years, and really has never seen the likes of it at all, as this generation's policies have even outpaced the Ellis Island days of the turn of the 20th century -- so much for perspective by the liberal media, that plants a false Lady Liberty narrative in order to further their globalist ideologies.

Americanism vrs. Globalism

The liberal globalist cabal who harp and carp about President Trump and his America-first, anti-globalist policies, have thus far managed (with the help of so-called conservative Republicans, by the way) to engineer a globalism that has almost doubled the populous since the 1976 Bi-centennial (even with the lowered birth rate brought about by so-called pro choice-ism), increased housing costs throughout America, increased homelessness, made it harder for college graduates and non-graduates alike to get jobs, but doubly harder for non-graduates & non-elite citizens generally. Even foreign/non-citizen globalists have the temerity to pronounce, inside or outside of America, that there is some kind of international right to settle in America, believe it or not. 

The political struggle for whether America will remain American or become purely Globalist continues, and even though the globalists have practically all the victories so far, it seems as though they won't be content until…
