Liberals admit Trump succeeds

Since passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, liberals have lost the House, the Senate, most governorships, most state legislatures, and any hope of a majority in the Supreme Court for a generation.

Now they've lost the presidency, Donald Trump is unraveling their Gordian Knot of regulations that strangle the economy and the American way of life. How do we know this?

The Washington Post is calling him centrist.


From the Prince of Darkness Post:
Trump backs off fiscal pledges and adopts centrist policies that he once fought
President Trump is abandoning a number of his key campaign promises on economic policy, adopting instead many of the centrist positions he railed against while campaigning as a populist.
Trump will not label China a “currency manipulator,” he told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, despite a campaign pledge that he would apply the label on his first day in office. He also said he was open to reappointing Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet L. Yellen after saying last year that the central banker should be “ashamed” of what she was doing to the country.
Translation: President Trump said he would re-negotiate with China, and it worked. Plus the economy is working.

There they go again, proving Salena Zito right when she said:
The press takes him literally, but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously, but not literally.
She does not say why supporters don't give him great leeway: They are not pushing a political agenda.

The reporters are.

But both sides realize that Trump is negotiating when he says things. His supporters take his statements with a grain of salt because they want him to succeed.

Reporters take him pedantically take him literal because they want him to fail.

Aha, they now say as he succeeds, he did not do what he said. This was after saying we should not vote for him because of all these terrible things he was saying.

The Post lives in La La Land:
The reversals come amid a period of rapid evolution for Trump on both foreign and domestic issues.
As if, sonny.

Trump went outside the political, military, and academic world to select a businessman as secretary of State. In 40-plus years at Exxon, Rex Tillerson dealt with many people in many countries and many cultures. Unlike some in Washington, he knows the difference between the Soviet Union and Russia. One was an Evil Empire, the other is a large country desperately seeking to rejoin the First World.

I liked this observation:
Trump has also sharpened his criticism of Russia, a major break from the praise he lavished on Russian President Vladimir Putin during the campaign.
Translation: We hope no one remembers us calling him Putin's puppet.

There's a Looney Tunes quality to the press efforts to destroy President Trump. They keep getting him wrong. I keep correcting them.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post kept Daniel Drezner on the payroll after he lied and said Jeff Sessions called immigrant "filth." Drezner also dropped an F-bomb in that lying tweet.

The original lying tweet was re-tweeted 5,290 times at last count. The apology, 148.

The Washington Post lies because it knows it can get away with it.



The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  3. In exchange for working with China, the hammer is being laid down on North Korea and we are going to be selling coal to China. Cost to our military - $0.

  4. Selling coal to China just makes Warren Buffett that much richer. Buffett's conglomerate owns the railroads that transport the coal across country to the West Coast ports from which the coal is then shipped overseas. I wonder if Warren is now paying a higher income tax rate than his executive assistant. Maybe he should release his tax returns.

    1. Selling coal also keeps some of the best jobs in my state from going away. It must really anger the Democrats to see their war on blue-collar jobs thwarted.

  5. "She does not say why supporters don't give him great leeway: They are not pushing a political agenda."

    Those who are political reporters, or follow politics in any way, (Guilty!) are more ideological than other people - sort of how people who are sports reporters or who closely follow a sports team are intense fans.

    Trump's supporters are not ideological, they do not care if he follows this theory or that, if he knows this philosopher or the one over there. His supporters just want results.

    If Donald Trump can deliver results that are, in a nutshell - having the mail delivered, the roads paved, and the navy at sea - then he wins. I really cannot say much more about the peace and quiet that everyone other than the monster raving loony wants to have the president actually deliver.
