The Method To Trump’s Supposed Madness
White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 7/3/2017 10:24:08 AM

It’s a funny thing how none of President Trump’s critics and haters, particularly the putatively smart observers in the press, ever get what he is doing. He’s a step ahead of them and he’s outwitting them, even as they preach to him from what they think is a perch at least twenty IQ points above his. But as Trump said Saturday night at a gathering of veterans in Washington, the media are in fact looking up to him as he stands upon on the presidential bully pulpit. “I’m president and they’re not,” he noted. There is a method to President Trump’s madness,

There are only two ways that you can be conned.

1. By someone who made you feel they were
smarter than you.

2. By someone who made you feel they were dumber than you.

The left never sees #2 coming.

He keeps them constantly off balance and confused. Part of the reason is they always underestimate him. I think they really believe he is not very smart - certainly not as smart as they are! It is very dangerous to not to understand and respect your opponents capabilities. But liberals are not smart enough to realize that.

A comment below the article that is worth repeating:

I somewhat disagree with your assessment of “conservatives who were outraged that Barack Obama had his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office but who somehow think [Trump’s wrestling video] is acceptable.” Your contrast lacks the temporal context that defines it: Obama put his feet on the desk at a time when George Bush had most recently exemplified “presidential,” so it was shocking. Eight years later, the standard of what is considered “presidential” is based on Obama’s disrespectful, divisive and deceptive example. So, to me, Trump’s tweets are tame by comparison. As someone clever noted, “We all know the president likes to yell at the television.” So we Trump supporters are judging him by his actions, and he’s keeping his promises. Amazing. I love the man.

Me, too.

I see some who "like him but… “ Always poking and prodding, trying to change this or that, the way some women are accused of treating their husbands.

Right, #7! These people also whine that the tweet could influence people to attack people in the news media.

So, if they are sincere, they ought to have vigorously condemned the dangerous and threatening leftist rendition of Julius Casear and what´s-her-name´s beheading video. But they didn´t... NOT EVEN AFTER the attempted mass assassination by a virulent leftist, which gravely wounded Congressman Scalise.

For my part, however, i do not like the kind of tweets that goad the bull, or are "boob bait for the bubbas" (who happen to be in the Left in general and media in particular) BECAUSE they distract from the truly great accomplisments being made by POTUS and his Government.

For the entire week and still the media dolts are blabbing about that Joe and Mika tweet.

The left are deranged fools, so I have no problem with Trump trolling them. They deserve it (and worse). But it´s not clear that this serves any purpose. Trump has been successful in some of the things he´s done in office, but not in others. I´m not complaining because he´s light years better than crooked Hillary, who would have turned the country into a third world hellhole.

FTA: I am concerned that the next people who will go subdermal on Trump are Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, should he still be alive.

Scant chance of that ever happening! Trump is a counter-puncher, how likely is it that true politicians such as Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping or even ideologue Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will taunt Trump for having "teensy" hands or an orange complexion?? He only tweets about those who insult him in a personal manner.

I´ve never put much stock in publicly stated impressions of a celebrity´s IQ, mostly because the people who make those pronouncements are very biased, but I do think President Trump has a very high EQ (emotional quotient)...he is able to "read" other people very well and has an instinct for knowing who will respond to flattery and who needs to be knocked down a few notches.

Why did KK even bother to write this. His attempt at faint praise falls far short of the liberal standard. His subulty is so subtle, he has to tell the reader what he is doing. Obviously, he thinks his IQ is 20 points higher than Trump. Based on this article, it is 20 points lower.

I´m really getting a kick out of the press and its cluelessness. It so reminds me of the atomic situp. Trump is the set up guy with the blindfold showing the mark how it´s impossible to do a situp blindfolded. The mark demands to show everyone that he can easily do a situp with his eyes blindfolded so he takes the situp position, ties the blindfold tight and sits up right into the public´s waiting naked backside. The incredible thing is that after they do it and make complete fools of themselves, they demand to try it again to demonstrate their fantastic abilities.

Trump just continues to get them to do atomic situps over and over and over again, I guess in hopes that they will someday realize they are fidiots. Sadly though, that´s never going to happen but it is getting pretty funny watching them "prove" that they can do an atomic situp. Yes, they can and please do another one.

Only a few questions that matter: does he get the job done? Is he keeping his campaign promises? Is he working hard for the American people? Is he reversing the horrors visited on the country by the august Fauxbama?

So far, yes to all of them.

Trump´s tweets are to throw the media off their game. When they are getting ready to attack a policy position and legislation like immigration, he throws out a personal attack which throws all the media into a tizzy and completely gets them off message. This allows him to work on things and push through policy with no interference from the press. Think about it - spend 5 minutes sending out a tweet which requires no thought or effort, to send the media running in all directions and to distract them from what they had been working on. Brilliant!

The godless enemedia probably have no awareness of their Biblical situation; they are obsessing over the sliver in Trump’s eye while completely ignoring the 2x4 in their own. Koffler sees Trump’s tweets serve a purpose but still clucks about them as if “boorishness” was new. What is new and upsetting is that the tweets are directed at the enemedia. Trump is conducting business with the coin of the realm. Bullies always hate it when the victim picks up the rock and throws it back.

#8 “For my part, however, I do not like the kind of tweets that goad the bull … BECAUSE they distract from the truly great accomplishments being made by POTUS and his Government.”

Gentle Ldotter, you rightly recognize that Trump’s tweets distract from his accomplishments receiving wider reporting. However, that’s the feature not a bug. Be assured that President Trump is not thin-skinned, nor are these tweets reflexive responses to bruised ego. His messages are carefully crafted Progressive “triggers” designed to keep them distracted and serve two different purposes; the first is to shatter their credibility and the second is to keep them from reporting the implementation of the MAGA agenda.

It is crucial that the foundations of MAGA be laid and the cement cured before the average Lefty has any idea what has happened. Would you prefer the enemedia to be mounting a sustained opposition and whipping up the masses with the details of oil drilling on federal lands, the resurrection of the coal industry, the roll-back of EPA regulations, and our military being unleashed? Trump is a genius. Trust him. Take a step back and don’t get caught up in the daily soap opera and instead witness an enemy in chaos.

Have a MAGA Fourth of July!

The theatrical left media loves to consider itself totally in charge of, ´writing the script,´ according to their PC agenda using demeaning labels & bogus stereotypes regardless of reality. -They think we don´t notice?! ...Increasingly even the dems´ ´news,´ media sifts anything from their reports which they deem out of sync with their pre-fabricated scenarios. They even brag about their presumed power.

Funny thing is, the public already knew about the sift & spin which media routinely dishes out and finally we see a courageous President who is actually confronting the press and holding them accountable for their theatrical productions by calling them out about their sloppy, deceptive reporting. ...´It´s a very good thing.´

WASHINGTON - The White House said Thursday it had withdrawn or removed from active consideration more than 800 proposed regulations that were never finalized during the Obama administration as it works to shrink the federal government´s regulatory footprint. In a report, the Trump administration said it had withdrawn 469 planned regulatory actions that had been part of the Obama administration´s regulatory agenda published last fall. Officials also reconsidered 391 active regulatory proceedings actions by reclassifying them as long-term or inactive "allowing for further careful review," the White House said. The administration´s move to eliminate regulations makes good on a much-repeated Trump campaign

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions deflected questions on Thursday about whether he can stay in his post after President Trump expressed a lack of confidence in Mr. Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Mr. Sessions said he loves his job and will continue to serve “as long as that is appropriate.” Asked whether he is considering resigning, Mr. Sessions said he and his colleagues intend to continue to do their jobs. “We are serving right now.

The public learned on March 10, 2015 that Hillary Clinton had more than 60,000 emails on her private email system, and that she had turned over "about half" of them to the State Department and destroyed the rest, which she said were "personal" and "not in any way related" to her work as Secretary of State. The public learned later the lengths to which Clinton went to make sure the "personal" emails were completely and permanently deleted. Her team used a commercial-strength program called BleachBit to erase all traces of the emails, and they used hammers to physically destroy mobile devices

Donald Trump is less than six months into his presidency, yet one of the organizing principles of his political operation is already becoming clear: Payback. In private, Trump has spoken of spending $10 million out of his own pocket to defeat an incumbent senator of his own party, Jeff Flake of Arizona, according to two sources familiar with the conversation last fall. More recently, the president celebrated the attacks orchestrated by a White House-sanctioned outside group against another Republican senator, Dean Heller of Nevada, who has also been openly critical of him. Fear of Trump reprisals has led one Republican congresswoman, Martha

President Donald Trump´s face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin stretched on for two hours – and was quickly followed by news the U.S. and Russia had reached an agreement on a cease fire in Syria. The cease fire is to take effect Sunday at noon in Damascus, the Associated Press reported, without adding further details. Israel and Jordan were reported to be part of the agreement. The sign of possible progress in Syria – where Russia is the primary backer of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad – came more than two hours after Trump said it was ´an honor´ to

The White House is briefing that there is “no fixed agenda” for the meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin, though the Kremlin said that this will be a “fully fledged seated meeting”, expected to last 15 minutes.

I don’t remember any of Obama’s speeches approaching the profundity and understanding of the world that President Trump displayed in remarks delivered today, appropriately enough, in Warsaw, Poland. For those who think Trump is a buffoon, if they watched today, they witnessed a president with a rare understanding that ideas and principles matter, far more than bombs or feel-good false assurances.

Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting.

Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has

The Humiliation Of Jeff Sessions- There is something more than a little jarring in the ongoing humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In an ill-timed, ill-focused interview with the NYT, President Trump revisited his disdain for Sessions, his first, most-ardent and most-loyal supporter in the Senate. When supporting Trump was still considered career suicide, Sessions donned the red cap anyway. Maybe it will prove fatal for Sessions’ career, after all. The president has not made a secret of the fact that he blames Sessions for the scandal that now engulfs the Trump administration, claiming in

The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said Wednesday. The tumor was discovered after the senior Arizona senator underwent a minor procedure last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. "Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," the hospital said in a statement. “The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe. The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe. FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments

Target Corp.

They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.
