2017: The year angry populists rose
to the top — and fell on their faces

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/1/2018 6:01:17 AM

Among the nearly 250 years of American politics, 2017 will stand out, along with 1829 (when Andrew Jackson was sworn in), as a moment when populists didn’t merely rattle the political establishment, but actually won a national election and gained real political power. And 2017 will also stand as a year in which the populists most proximate to political power fell flat on their faces. The problem isn’t populism per se. The problem is that much of the populism accompanying (and also powering) Donald Trump’s rise has been purely negative — vacuous populism whose beginning, middle, and end is inchoate anger

You mean like: "vacuous leftism whose beginning, middle, and end is inchoate anger?" Like that?

His definition of "vacuous populism" is rather odd. He uses people like Roy Moore and Yiannopoulos - popular speakers and idealists as examples? Boy, that dropping your line down a very narrow well expecting to catch a whale. Trump might be a nationalistic idealist- one who love his country above all others and has ideas that will make that country greater. But, considering the vast (95%) media hatred spewed forth on President Trump, I doubt you could call him a "Vacuous Populist". We voters, "re-defined by all the Liberal Greats as "Deplorables" seemed to agree with President trump. So, that makes him popular with us, as as it turned out, we were a vast majority (except in leftist enclaves like California´s two raging socialist cities packed with leftists and illegals). That hardly makes him or us "vacuous", though. I guess the writers main problem is, his dying brand of America Hate is powerless to stop America Love. So, "Ed" has to rail against it and offer absolutely nothing to make his brand of vacuous socialism more digestible to more voters.

Bull !

Our Feral Government has been weaponized against us. The awsome powers of the IRS used to strangle the Tea Party in it´s cradle in an election year. The State Dept is run by a Raging, drunken Kleptocrat and America´s safety and freedom is being sold piecemeal. Wires are being tapped. The President is a Jihadi. The economy sucks and we have "EMPTY POPULISM" driven only by mindless hate ?

You, Sir, can kiss my highly privileged white posterior.

...and peddle this Leftist Lunacy to those who never lived through it or, more likely, to those who were a part of it and benefited from this era of State Sponsored Criminality.

Build that wall, enforce laws of the land (put her in jail), there is no MANMADE global warming, feds are too big and outside of the lines delineated by the charter given to the federal government by the CITIZENS, respect the 4th Amendment, respect the 2nd Amendment, respect the 1st Amendment, stop penalizing US companies that do no export AMERICAN jobs that power the AMERICAN economy. That sounds pretty positive to almost all flyover country TAXPAYING American CITIZENS.

What is not uplifting about that positive message? Please direct your questions to our representative - PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP.

Meanwhile, back in alternative leftist reality:
Democrats are jubilant and the last pockets of conservative resistance are being mopped up.
All hail President Hillary!

Now back to actual reality.

Reality - It is VERY hard for populists to take any power from the government that is ensconced to protect it. It takes a person of unusual ability and focus. And, there are not many Donald Trumps running around.

“Populism is a political approach that seeks to disrupt the existing social order by solidifying and mobilizing the animosity of the "commoner" or "the people" against "privileged elites" and the “establishment"

#3 Blue, "Our Feral Government has been weaponized against us."

Several hundred agencies and thousands of sub-committees devised to protect US have become mechanisms to control US.

EPA, FEC, NEA, DOE, FBI, CIA, FDA, DEA, IRS, to name just a few.

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Lord Acton

As I watched President Trump´s campaign unfold with thousands at his campaign stops, it became obvious that Patriotic Americans and constitutionalists were fed up. President Trump is giving freedom back to the people as is the intent of the US Constitution. It is going to be a long and arduous road, but I truly believe that Our President not only has the will but also the stamina to turn our government back to US. I´m waiting for him to push "term limits."

God Bless America and keep OUR President safe!

The only successful populist is the one who had a national media soapbox and held nothing back in continually attacking his political enemies and the enemies of the United States. PDT has survived by the very Twitter feed that every talking twit on TV predicted would lead to his downfall.

The Tea Party never got to a microphone before they were tarred and feathered as racist, mouth-breathing troglodytes. And when they did talk, it was far too milquetoast.

You cannot survive a political street fight abiding the Marcus of Queensbury Rules. You have to be out there and kick your enemy when they are down at every turn. And they are perpetually down, because they are universally wrong about everything. They are universally wrong about everything, because they follow a Marxist ideological playbook that they know will destroy our country, because it has never succeeded in practice anywhere in the world at any time.

Jokes on you pal. I didn´t dress up in a black outfit or hit anyone with a bicycle lock. Not one smashed window last year, so take a hike.

BTW the swamp stinks. It is funny how being so absolutely corrupt, they can´t do a witch hunt on President Trump without uncovering massive corruption of the status quo. People tend to notice that sort of thing, even dopes educated by TV.

When did the Washington Examiner turn NeverTrump? Did this guy stop to think that maybe populists are angry because he and the rest of the media, along with DC have ignored the will of the MAJORITY for decades now?

Being ignored like that tends to put people off and make them angry. Rightfully so too.

“It’s pretty embarrassing when you have to take your children out of the room to report the news,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, whined Monday. Mr. Graham, longtime pal of Sen. John McCain, was complaining about President Trump’s alleged use of the word “s–hole” to describe Haiti and some other nations in Africa and Latin America in a meeting Thursday. Both Mr. Trump and the White House said he didn’t say the word, but the media and liberals (along with “Republicans In Name Only” like Mr. Graham) had already gotten their undies in a wad.

Get Off the Couch, If You Want Medicaid
American Spectator, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article

Last week the Trump administration announced it will allow states to impose a “community engagement” requirement on healthy adults getting Medicaid, the public health insurance program for lower income people. So far, ten states intend to do it, though not welfare-haven New York. To get Medicaid, adults in these states will have to work or look for a job, study for a high school diploma, learn English as a second language, volunteer, get addiction treatment, or take care of a family member. In short, do something. Democrats and the liberal media call the requirement “cruel” and “pathological.” Baloney. There’s no

Have you you ever noticed that for today’s civil rights movement, every racial problem is the equivalent of the Edmund Pettus Bridge? Everything is Selma! And have you ever noticed that for modern environmentalists, the Cuyahoga River is burning forever? What would have happened if the Edmund Pettus Bridge had been built over the Cuyahoga River? You’d get climate change uber alles.

Hillary Clinton was not a role model

The New York Times dragged out a sanitized version of Hillary Clinton once again, in a lament that she had to expire politically to create an uprising. But people who want to see women advancing in politics should be glad that she lost. Clinton was not a role model, as her model wasn’t available to anyone who hadn’t married a president. A bad politician, she was dependent upon him, and when he turned out to be a chronic seducer and even abuser of women, she was willing to threaten and even destroy his victims to assure his success. Hillary Clinton’s biggest moments

Uranium Indictment in Maryland
Not ´Coincidental,´ Tom Fitton Says

A Maryland transportation firm executive´s indictment last week in the FBI investigation of a corrupt uranium deal was not "coincidental," Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton suggested on Fox and Friends Monday morning. The charges come after reports released in late December revealed that the Justice Department was taking a fresh look at the Uranium One deal that gave a Russian company control of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium industry while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. Fitton couldn´t say for sure if the fresh scrutiny led to the indictment, but added, "It´s, I don´t think, coincidental, a few months after it´s

Georgia lawmaker Rep. John Lewis said he gets taunted in public, recalling a specific account of boarding a plane where someone was shouting "Trump!" at him. On Lift Every Voice, a new podcast by Sen. Cory Booker, Lewis said the taunt happened on a recent flight he had taken from Atlanta to Washington. "I was coming back to Washington on Sunday night," Lewis said. "I was on a flight from Atlanta. And I´m walking down the aisle and the gentleman said as loud as he could, ´Trump!´ So I didn´t — I just kept walking. I didn´t say anything. And sometimes I´m

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards explained how the abortion giant’s business model works in a Monday interview, unveiling the various ways the company seeks to further its business activities. Richards encouraged pro-abortion civilians to come up with and act on their own creative ideas. She referred to the numerous Planned Parenthood products on Etsy like T-shirts, candles, buttons, and hats that advertise the abortion organization’s activities. “Don’t wait for instructions. Just do it, whatever it is you’re going to do,” Richards told FastCompany in an interview. “It’s going to be everybody doing their part.” Richards also touted the abortion organization’s text-chat service, which

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values.

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
