Kissing President Trump's ring

Never Trump and its Obamanaut friends think we are a bunch of rubes being played for suckas by President Trump because he held a meeting with Al Gore, or someone in his upcoming Cabinet donated to Planned Parenthood, or someone associated with him lobbied sometime somewhere.

Just remember: Never Trump and its Obamanaut friends got the election wrong. They want to plant seeds of doubt. Why listen to those losers? Listen to a real expert, billionaire Conrad Black.

Black is a Canadian newspaper tycoon who knows Trump. He knows American politics. And he knows what is going on.

From Conrad Black:
Donald Trump is the only person in history to be elected president of the United States without having held a prominent public office or military command, the only one to have paid for his own campaign for the nomination, the only one to have run successfully against the leadership and all the principal factions of both parties, the oldest and wealthiest person to be elected, and the first of a business background. 
He ran against the system, both parties, and almost all the media and the polls, to “drain the swamp,” against the OBushtons: all the Clintons and Obamas and Bushes and the Republican and Democratic lookalike also-rans (Carter, Dukakis, Quayle, Gore, Kerry, McCain, Romney). The only alumnus of that latter school still in good odor is the 93-year old Robert Dole, vice-presidential candidate in 1976 and presidential candidate in 1996. Trump is not a new broom sweeping clean; this was the big wolf blowing the house down into rubble and splinters and shards.
President Trump is the American Cromwell. Trump's was a bloodless uprising of the peasants in the outer provinces, as the delightful Twitter parody of North Korean propaganda might put it.

But unlike Cromwell, President Trump does not need that old castle in Washington. He has a bigger and bolder one in Manhattan that is taller with a better view.

He uses it to his advantage. Thanks to C-Span, the public sees who crosses the gilded drawbridge and rises up the golden shaft to the penthouse. Some seek jobs. Some seek favors. Some seek friendship. He is Don Corleone on his daughter's wedding day.

Frenemies are punished. Mitt Romney's head was placed on a spike and paraded in public. Twice. The message was clear. And when Harry Reid attacked The Donald, Romney bit back. Hard. That was something Romney failed to do when Reid attacked him four years ago.

Enemies are made to toe the line. He summoned media moguls one day. Tech giants another day.

Meanwhile, the revolutionary government assembles.

From Conrad Black:
Each major domestic-policy department of government is being entrusted to people dedicated to radical change, to the uprooting of a whole generation of error.
Education will go to a great champion of chartered schools (Betsy DeVos), in the hope of wrenching the country’s failed public-education system from the palsied hands of the Democratic party’s decayed allies in the teachers’ unions.
Labor itself will be in the hands of someone (Andrew Puzder) who supports the workers by guaranteeing their rights and liberating them from the corrupt enemies of workplace efficiency and cooperation in organized labor – a barely living group reduced now to the infestation of public-sector unions (only 6.7 percent of the country’s shrinking work force is now unionized).
The Environmental Protection Agency will be in the hands of someone (Scott Pruitt) who does not believe the unsubstantiated ecoterrorism about global warming and will protect the environment without throwing millions of people in carbon-related energy into unemployment in the fatuous professed expectation that they will be reemployed building windmills and solar panels.
Health care will be in the hands of the greatest expert in the Congress (Tom Price) on how to introduce a dual-payer (where affordable to the insured family) universal-health-care system that does not lie to the taxpayer, separate the patients from their doctors, or preserve statewide insurance fiefdoms.
Taxation, campaign-finance reform, and the budget will be in the hands of people (Steven Mnuchin at Treasury) who will raise revenue from elective transactions and reduce taxes for small personal and business income earners.
This is a Team of Competents.

All those fake conservatives in Washington should be ashamed. They totally misjudged the man. A fool does not put in 10 to 15 hour days working on this. A Cheetos Bandito could not possibly comprehend the enormity of the task before him. A publicity hound would not take on this task.

But a CEO workaholic about to turn his empire over to his children after 40 years at the plow would leap at the opportunity to build one last skyscraper -- the biggest and tallest of all. President Trump relishes the opportunity.

Do you think for one moment I have any doubt of the outcome?

You want a laugh? Of course you do. Read Politico's Meet Trump's "Cabinet-in-waiting" from the day after the election.

Fake news. No mention of Mattis. No mention of Tillerson. Sessions was mentioned, but not as attorney general.

That was the work of fourteen reporters. 14!

The transition team had been working since August and these bozos at Politico -- Politibozo -- were cluelessly grasping at straws because they have no sources in this administration. The people who know do not need them, and enjoy watching the press squirm.

That 60 MPH bulldozer has leveled the press corps.

The press will continue railing on Putin and President Trump will play along. Let them stew in the juices of their own misery. He will cut a deal with Russia and Israel, and end the troubles in Syria by disemboweling the Islamic State. Then he will move the embassy to Jerusalem.

After that, he will care nothing about the Middle East or Persia. Not his circus. He has nothing to gain there.

President Trump eyes China. Nixon adopted the two China policy to create an ally against the Soviet Union. Now Trump uses the other side of that sword to coax Russia to help rein in the Dragon. The key to reviving our economy is to eliminate that trade deficit that rises by $1 billion a day.

Oh and then there is that Make America Great Again Wall. It would be a nice thing to dedicate on the Fourth of July.

But make no mistake. President Trump is no super genius playing seventh dimensional chess underwater in space. He is a well-trained CEO who can run a dozen companies at once. Ambition, discipline, and hard work are his closest tools.

  1. It just gets better every day - and he hasn't even been inaugurated yet. Obama blew his chance and ended up making a mess. I keep hearing Rush singing "Something For Nothing." The lyrics are rather appropriate.

    2. My son used to be married to Alex Lifeson's niece some years back.

      He used to call them up when he was playing in Vancouver BC (Canada) and they would tool around on the town with him in his limo.
      He divorced her about ten years ago...dumb...not only was she nice people but a looker and smart as well.
      I liked her lots and she and I had a lot of laughs together.
      I never did meet Alex though.

  2. Black's analysis of the Cabinet is right on it.

    Trump is hiring managers to run divisions of his company while everybody else wants a band of ideological brothers.

    They will never get it.

  4. Further to Don's Three Little Hacks analogy, the MSM strike me as being the hipster crowd at the Dew Drop Inn. Remember them?

    "From the crowd came an angry shout
    Stop the music! Throw the square out!"

    And do you recall what happen to them right after that?

    "The Big Bad Wolf was really sore
    If they’re gonna get tough I’ll give 'em more
    They don’t know talent in this here town
    I’ll huff and I’ll puff and blow da place down."

  5. Politico's article was based on "conversations with policy experts, lobbyists, academics, congressional staffers and people close to Trump.".

    All of the losers we are sick of hearing from, except Trump's people, who were probably misdirecting. No leakers there.

  6. This may be the best article of yours I've ever read. It gives me chills. The wins just keep coming.

    Trump is a new Cyrus, of God's own choosing, and so far every element of the Biblical prophesies, Biblical history, and secular record are coming together. It will be hard work for all of us and we must be vigilant and prepared to fight when called on. Thank you Father God for allowing us to see this time!

  9. Trump just picked my Congressman, Ryan Zinke, to head the Department of the Interior. Zinke is a former Navy Seal officer and a strong conservative:

    --President-elect Donald Trump announced Thursday he plans to nominate former Navy SEAL and Montana Republican Rep. Ryan Zinke for secretary of the Interior.

    “I am pleased to nominate Congressman Ryan Zinke as our Secretary of the Interior. He has built one of the strongest track records on championing regulatory relief, forest management, responsible energy development and public land issues,” Trump said in a statement.

    Trump called for “smart management of our federal lands” while reiterating his goal to “repeal bad regulations and use our natural resources to create jobs and wealth for the American people.” He said Zinke “will explore every possibility for how we can safely and responsibly do that.”--

  12. I'm convinced that when Trump turns things around progressives will lockstep into a narrative that gives Obama credit. It will be Politico's "Trump Inherits Obama Boom" writ large.

    Already they have sanctified the idea that nobody saw Trump's appeal. We tried to tell them. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=h6hfkOGo9ME

  13. Another fan of Conrad Black! A much maligned but very smart man and one of great intestinal fortitude.

    The parade of people going up to the heavens to swear allegiance to ZeusTrump has been invigorating, as has the city of NY's whining about the cost of protecting Trump Tower. Can't wait for this very smart and successful Cabinet to start working on fixing our country.

  15. Glad you mention working with Russia in re China. I have given that considerable thought for years in an even larger context but still aimed at triangulating China. I call it Three Brothers Doctrine. Begging your indulgence, here is the URL: http://theological-geography.net/?p=27675

  16. Yeah, Don, that crow keeps tasting better. I like what I'm seeing from Trump. I'm still waiting, though, to see that first SCOTUS appointment confirmed and first gubmint agency closed down.

    Evidently, you cannot be a true gentleman like Ronald Reagan and be successful in politics today. Kudos to Trump for recognizing what it took to get elected.

    1. No disrespect to Reagan, but we need to see that times change. Reagan was needed as the antidote for the 1970s but wouldn't fit today. Now we need the antidote to globalism and elitism. Trump is it. Leave Reagan in peace.

  17. During the campaign, I was a Trump agnostic. I was a Scott Walker supporter, so most of the campaign I didn't have my preferred candidate. I guess Cruz was 2. I thought that the Media would grind down, otherize, hyperventilate enough, and ultimately beat Trump.

    I'm giddy that he (and we) won. And he wants to keep winning. And he's going to govern as if he wants to be the fifth face on Mt. Rushmore. It's a healthy ego: he wants to succeed, but he understands that success doesn't come from the media, or the think tanks, or the advisers, it comes from actual tangible results to everyday Americans. My gosh I think he's going to be great.

  18. You have a typo, if you care.

    And when Harry Reid attacked The Donald, Romney bit back. Hard. That was something Romney failed to do when Reid attacked him four years ago.
