Photo made possible by electing Donald Trump president



Electing Donald John Trump president did not ignite World War 3.

Instead, we postponed such a war indefinitely.

As president, Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do nearly 20 years ago.


The self-appointed experts -- snobs who know nothing of how the world works -- sneered at President Trump throughout this whole process.

Fareed Zakaria at CNN is a clown. A truly free press would dump every single one of these dummies for incompetence. Instead, expect more of the same.

But that is their problem, not ours.

Instead, Foster Krug of the Associated Press brings us the good news we have waited for.

"GOYANG, South Korea (AP) -- With a single step over a weathered, cracked slab of concrete, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made history Friday by crossing over the world's most heavily armed border to greet South Korean President Moon Jae-in for talks on North Korea's nuclear weapons. Kim then invited Moon to cross briefly back into the north with him before they returned to the southern side," Krug wrote.

Note, the Associated Press made Kim the hero.

And Trump isn't mentioned until the 11th paragraph. It's as if the man who arranged this meeting were a bit player. The United States getting tough on North Korean sanctions (and quite possibly disabling Kim's nuke program) did not exist.

No, Moon and Kim just spontaneously agreed to stroll down the lane hand-in-hand and end a war that is now in its 68th year.

Trump supporters know better. The truth matters, no matter how much the media hates it.

UPDATE: History repeats (thank you, Papa Buckland).

    3. “With God, all things are possible.”

      Lotta test pilots ... of whom a disproportionate number were Appalachian ... have always said that.

      And a big part of that is, “God helps those who help themselves.”

    4. “God helps those who help themselves.” Sorry, not in the Bible! And it greatly depends on what you're talking about. In this case, it is true. If we live righteously, God will bless us. That's in the bible big time.

    5. “God helps those who help themselves.”

      A man in a flood-zone was sitting on the roof of his house surrounded by rising waters.

      A fellow in a rowboat came by.

      “Swim on over, and I’ll take you aboard!”, he yelled.

      “No need!”, said the man on the house roof. “God will save me!”

      So the boatman went on his way.

      The floodwaters rose some more.

      Soon a motorboat came by.

      “Climb down, swim on over, and we’ll take you aboard!”, yelled one of the men.

      “No need!”, said the man on the house roof. “God will save me!”

      So the motorboat went on its way.

      The floodwaters continued to rise.

      Eventually a helicopter hovered above the floodbound man.

      “Catch hold of this rope, and we’ll pull you up!”, they yelled.

      “No need!”, said the man on the house roof. “God will save me!”

      So the helicopter flew off.

      And the floodwaters finally rose to top of the roof, and drowned that man.

      Shortly afterwards, there was a commotion at the Pearly Gates.

      “I trusted in God to save me from the floodwaters!”, yelled the man at Saint Peter, “and yet I drowned!”

      “Well, I can’t think why”, replied Saint Peter. “We sent a rowboat, a motorboat, a chopper...”

    6. “God helps those who help themselves.”

      Nope.

      Aesop's Fables - The gods help those who help themselves.

      Uh, no. If we could help ourselves in complete free will, the Cross of Christ would have been unnecessary.

      Can we, in faith, think and act more logically? Of course. But we ought not to borrow from fables and pretend it is Christian theology.

    7. Well, we're each of us entitled to our opinions.

      Mine rests in the missionary tradition of presenting the Gospel, not as a repudiation of people's beliefs and traditions, but as a correction of them.

  4. Wasn't it Reagan who said "There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don't insist on taking the credit?"

    2. It goes way back, a number of people getting credit. It was Reagan who made it prominent in the modern era.

      Your point, however, is well taken. I believe that denuclearization is a done deal. What remains is an elaborate Kabuki wherein Kim and his regime will be praised lavishly and credited with being saviors of humanity. It's the booby prize.

    3. Yep. I hunnerd percent agree.
      Now on to bed. I am tired from all those retirement naps I took today.

  5. The media "experts" who said this summit would never happen are now throwing shade by saying we can't trust the Norks to keep their word. Wasn't it Reagan who said "trust but verify"?

    1. And the dems said, "Trust, but who cares if we verify."

    2. We may have already verified they have no nuke program :)

  6. " A truly free press would dump every single one of these dummies for incompetence." They ARE free, Don; free to spout lies and shade (or completely black out) the truth. Replace "A truly free" with "An honest and truthful", and then you've got it.

    "And Trump isn't mentioned until the 11th paragraph. It's as if the man who arranged this meeting were a bit player." Note that the Trump reputation(?) for self-aggrandizement is NOT in evidence.

      President Trump, now starring as "The Invisible Diplomatic Man!"

      His unseen hands work miracles, all without being visible to the FakeNewsMedia who hang on Trump's every move! Is his hand quicker than their eye? See for yourself!

      Ambulances are ready outside the theater, to take away any Acostas or other urinalists who faint at this marvellous performance!

      Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime Invisible Show, from the greatest Invisible Actor of All Time!

  10. No one was expecting The Trumpish Demolition.

  11. Trump could save the planet from Space Invaders, repel a Zombie Apocalypse, single-handedly stuff sausages with grunting ideologues from Maduro More to Bad Vlad Putin and Xi Jinping, and no dull-eyed, gap-toothed, hagridden Nobel Committee member would raise an eyebrow.

    After genuflecting before benedict Baract Gangrenous, SHD, these bumwads have nothing to offer anyway. Not to insult Trump, but if we were in his shoes any gritted-teeth call from Scandia would elicit a response from Gen. Mattis to effect that, "Thank you, and goodbye. No need to return this call."
