Is Trump clever or just lost?
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm

Posted By:SurferLad, 4/18/2017 6:53:10 AM

There seem to be a fair number of people these days loudly complaining that the unpredictable presidential candidate named Donald J. Trump has become the unpredictable president named Donald J. Trump. Imagine that. Less than three months into their standard-bearer’s presidency, Trump supporters openly fret that the man who made billions selling customers and investors everything from condos to casinos, from steaks to university degrees, is changing course on them. Just like a real pol. Of course, the 70-year-old real estate baron isn’t a real pol. Most pols have some kind of ideological tethering

Neither one. He´s simply learning on the job and dealing with things on an as-needed basis. Everyone should have expected this and it´s way too early to judge his success or failure.

Love it when left and right coast media tell Trump supporters what they think. Trump has proposed nothing that would be considered liberal. The media start rumors than report on them like they are fact.

The dismantling and selling of America requires a ´Predictable´ and purchasable and slovenly President.

How can we complete the transformation with this goof-ball, Eagle-Scout, America Lover at the helm ?

Thank you, #3. I´m confused by these articles that tell me how I´m fretting that my president sold me a bill of goods. And yet, I haven´t seen any liberal executive orders or proposals. What am I missing?

The problem for the left is that their Alinsky tactics are no longer secret. We read the book too. This leftist tactic of fabricating a narrative, then reporting it until it dies is getting really old, and makes even tepid Trump voters hotter and hotter (as in angry). As angry as it makes me, it makes me look forward to contributing to the campaign´s of the candidates where Democrats are vulnerable in 2018.

These headlines 24/7 are get very wearisome. A glance for me today of the headlines on Drudge and here are just so negative towards President Trump. As they are every single day. I realize now that the left and many of our own will not stop. It will be like this for the next four years. It seems best to stop reading them so often. I need to tamper down my "news" consumption.

The only Trump "supporters" that are questioning his actions are liberals in Conservative clothing (or bitter eRepublicans). They throw up a straw man of what Conservatives supposedly expect, something they don´t understand in the first place, and then try to show how Trump has let us down.

Well I don´t feel let down in the least. Trump has made excellent appointments. He nominated a stellar SCOTUS judge and forced the dems to go nuts in opposing him. He has issued many executive orders that unwind BO´s insanity. He has signed CRA laws that undo BO´s last minute regulations push. He has made very precise and strategic military strikes on evil people and set a new tone in the world. He has met with many foreign leaders and seems to have established a rapport with them. He continues to pound the dishonest media into the ground as they so richly deserve. He continues to push Congress for laws to accomplish his agenda. He has weathered the "Russians are Coming" meme and has helped turn it on its head so dems are now coming under fire and being exposed. He has shown well considered and measured presidential actions.

Expecting perfection from anyone is a fools game but so far, Trump has vastly exceeded my expectations. Every week I see something he does and think, "Great job!". I can´t wait to see what he has accomplished by the end of his first year in office.

Well, it’s about time. After some Confederate statue-topplings, but before any Confederate book burnings, California protesters are now targeting a horse. A beautiful Arabian. The creature’s unforgivable crime? His name is similar to the horse ridden by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee 152 years ago, Traveler. Only Lee’s horse used two L’s–Traveller. Traveler is the official mascot of the University of Southern California. With a sword-waving, faux warrior in the saddle, he gallops all over the home field whenever the USC Trojan football team scores, which it’s expected to do a lot this season.

One of the more intriguing and lesser-known stories of World War II is the USS Indianapolis, a heavy cruiser that played a crucial role in ending the war against Japan but did not survive to see it. This weekend, 26,319 days after the fatally-wounded ship capsized and quickly sank creating one of the worst single-ship loss of life in U.S. Navy history, an expedition led by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen found the wreckage. It was far deeper even than the Titanic, nearly 3.5 miles beneath the surface of the Philippine Sea northeast

To better understand the ominous ongoing North Korean crisis, let’s view it from Kim Jong Un’s point of view.

While President Trump spends the next two weeks away from the White House, scores of workers will undertake the next steps in a long-planned renovation of the West Wing. White House staffers have been relocated while stairs and leaks are repaired, electrical systems upgraded, walls repainted, drapes cleaned and a modernized system of heating and air conditioning is installed. The massive 24/7 repair work area is an ideal metaphor for the troubled Trump administration rolling toward its eighth month.

While political Washington indulged its obsession over the latest toxic Trump turmoil, North Korea launched another ICBM test, the second in July and 12th this year, in its relentless quest for a weapon of mass destruction to deliver upon the United States. This is not an idle mid-summer fantasy. [Snip] The communist North Korea could be ready by this time next summer or soon after. That could be wrong too.

WASHINGTON – Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) said many federal employees are leaving the Environmental Protection Agency and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration over “fear” that the Trump administration is going to “suppress their viewpoints” or move them to irrelevant positions. Beyer, ranking member of the House Science, Space and Technology Subcommittee on Oversight, was asked if he would have full access to the “unfiltered” final version of the latest federal government report on climate change.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White House, so at the very least they should try to retain their House majority. The directive came during a conference call, Gohmert told The Daily Caller in a video interview and then confirmed again during his appearance on "Fox & Friends" Sunday.

As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin.

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.

WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies. Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220

Trust in the mass media is at an all-time low. Two-thirds of Americans believe the mainstream press publishes fake news. Yes, there’s still much good journalism to be found, if you know where to look. Yet, ask reporters who’ve been around a while, and many will tell you that a lot of good journalism is being left unpublished. Good journalists hate what’s happening to the news. We have only ourselves to blame. Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines.
