Why would we abandon Trump? He’s
doing what he said he would do.

Washington Post, by Gary Abernathy

HILLSBORO, Ohio — A year removed from our newspaper’s endorsement of Donald Trump for president, the most frequent question I get in emails and letters are from Trump critics asking whether I regret the endorsement. I find it an odd question. It’s reflective of a similar theme often directed at Trump supporters in columns from many of our nation’s leading op-ed writers, especially after a presidential tweet-storm or inflammatory comment or action. “Will President Trump’s supporters finally desert him?” they ask. Through the years, it became an accepted tenet of American politics that promises made and personas adopted by presidential candidates to

Excellent piece, the author explains to the idiot antiTrumpers the "mystery" of why Trump´s base is sticking with him. No mystery, chuckleheads, he is doing something that is unheard of for most politicians - he is doing what he said he would do.

We like it, the Enemedia is baffled, as usual.

It was very disorienting to find it in the BezosComPost and saying "our newspaper´s endorsement of Donald Trump" without an explanation.

Poor journalism on the part of the ComPost not to put a short explanatory note at the top, before the articla, that they put at the bottom, after it.

FTA:Gary Abernathy, a contributing columnist for The Post, is publisher and editor of the Hillsboro (Ohio) Times-Gazette.

Look at the comments after the article. The swamp came out in force to denounce the author.
They really hate our President and they really hate our guts.

We are taking heavy flack. So we know we are over the target, burning our enemies metaphorical cities to the ground.

Yes he is! If Congress could get on board much more would get done. And THIS success is what defines Trump as a President and as a person. Further, not only the WHAT but the HOW. Trump repeatedly returns issues to the Congress where the decisions rightfully belong. This shows a deep respect for our Constitutional government structure. Yes, Congress has mangled things up but it was STILL the right thing, the LASTING way to go.

As to the "tape" and allegations, what we have is a stupid boastful GENERIC conversation. NO specific woman was talked about. All the allegations have faded away because there was NOTHING to substantiate them. Beyond that, in NONE of Trumps vast business practices does ANY sexual bias show itself. That´s simply amazing and tells more truth about Trump than rigged dem accusations.

hoped ... Trump would “pivot,” becoming “more presidential.”

When given half a chance, Trump has shined. Several of his speeches have been blockbusters and almost perfectly delivered. Because Trump fights back hard against insane enemies, he is not "Presidential"? His Asian trip was stunningly received and generated GREAT respect for Trump and the US. People who don´t see Trump as presidential are blinded by their hate.

"in addition to consistently exhibiting what many see as negative attributes" - "The outrageous tweets, the bluster, the self-aggrandizement, the insults"

These are not "negative" attributes. They are absolutely essential, and effective, ways to deal will the unrelentless negativism, slander, and lies of the dems, media, deep state, and Left in general. These fools take polite actions as an invitation for vicious attacks. W Bush tried being a "gentleman". He was skewered personally and his agenda was torpedoed. Through necessary brute force, Trump is almost single handedly eviscerating the Left. Yup, it´s ugly. The Left gives us no other option.

LANSING, Mich. — The judge overseeing the sentencing of disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar said Monday that more than 120 girls and women who had given statements so far at the five-day hearing were "sister survivor warriors." "I want you to know that your face and the face of all of the sister survivor warriors — the whole army of you — I´ve heard your words," Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said after a woman spoke in her Michigan courtroom.

Christian churches were among the Kurds begging for international assistance to stop Turkey´s assault on a northern Syrian city to clear it of Kurdish forces that have been fighting ISIS. Turkish forces began bombing the city of Afrin from the air on Saturday and sent in ground troops on Sunday. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday that “Operation Olive Branch" against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) "will be resolved" and "there will be no step back" as he claims the Kurds are terrorists.

Mind you, what is taking place in the West makes Greek politics seem ideal by comparison. The witch hunt is on, and it’s as phony as the one that burned those poor women in Salem long ago.

Paul appended former US Attorned/former Independent Counsel Joseph diGenova’s interview with Ginni Thomas to his update on “That explosive House Intel Committee document.” In the interview diGenova lucidly exposes the Trump/Russia collusion illusion for what it is and name checks the principal malefactors. It is well worth the time to take it in. As a commenter on Paul’s post pointed out, diGenova also appeared on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall with Mary Walter and Vince Coglianese this morning for a 15-minutes interview. The interview (audio below after a 3-second advertisement) brings the story up to date with diGenova’s comments on the

As they gear up for November’s Congressional election, the Democrats are peddling a fantasy view of events in America: Trump the racist, Trump the trampler on the First Amendment, Trump the warmonger (or something), Trump-Russia collusion, the Republicans as servants of the rich. To an even greater degree than usual, this election will feature a head-on collision between such fantasies and reality. The reality is that the Trump administration’s policies have been remarkably successful. This is most triumphantly illustrated by the GOP tax reform package, which no Democratic president would have signed into law. Its beneficial effects have already been widely

We learn from Senator Johnson’s letter to FBI Director Wray that the Department of Justice has turned over 384 pages of text messages between FBI counterintelligence officer Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page. (We also learn that five months’ of text messages between the infamous FBI couple during the critical period culminating in the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel have disappeared.) What do the newly disclosed text messages reveal? Strzok and Page seem to have been in the loop on then FBI Director’s forthcoming exoneration of Hillary Clinton.

There´s no way to sugar coat this story! A North Carolina man who won first prize in an eating competition against some police officers, found himself with a glazed look of his own when they arrested him a day after his victorious binge.

LAKE WALES — Police say two improvised explosive devices ignited inside a mall in central Florida on Sunday do not appear to be an act of terrorism. Lake Wales police Deputy Chief Troy Schulze tells news outlets that at 5:22 p.m., the Lake Wales Fire Department received an alarm call at the Eagle Ridge Mall. While en route to that call, their alarm for smoke was turned into a structure fire call. As they arrived, they found smoke in the service corridor just outside J.C. Penney. They discovered an IED that ignited or detonated inside that service corridor as they went inside. Schulze

Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said people were entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. Clearly, Moynihan never dealt with Florida legislators. Because around Tallahassee, facts are fungible. They aren’t just up for debate, they’re up for purchase. You can find legislative priorities that are written like an online dating profile. Some fudging here, some exaggeration there. If the data doesn’t fit your political objective, just commission a study to twist the narrative in your favor and .?.?. Voila!

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest

Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that.

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair. It´s probably safe to say there is not a single

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months´ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok.

The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump´s move away from global leadership, and China´s eagerness to fill the

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

"We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years.

It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview
