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

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.

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.

Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Moreno    Original Article

President Trump nominated his justice quickly; Republican senators need to act just as fast. If history tells us anything, it’s that they may not get another chance, even if Trump is re-elected in 2020. Clarence Thomas is now the only Supreme Court justice nominated by a president of one party and confirmed (narrowly) by a Senate controlled by the other party. The rest were appointed and confirmed in the brief periods when one party controlled both the White House and the Senate. Former President Barack Obama got Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor through in the first half of his first

An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that he took down the controversial drawing after threats from Trump supporters and a request from his landlord. The gallery founder asked to remain anonymous for fear that someone would try to harm him. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trump’s head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from

Trump and Putin’s OJ-like search

When did OJ become POTUS? President Trump told a Helsinki press conference Monday that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has an “interesting idea” about resolving questions on election meddling in the 2016 election: create a joint American-Russian committee on inquiry. That is, Moscow and Washington will together investigate whether Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC computers, as a US prosecutor answerable to Trump alleged late last week. They’ll find who’s responsible for other election shenanigans, which Trump’s top intel officials believe to be Russia’s handiwork. In other words, Putin — like OJ Simpson after his acquittal — will be looking for the

The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant “must be dismissed.” “Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive

U.S. immigration officials took aim at San Francisco’s sanctuary city law Monday in the case of the San Mateo man accused of being the “Rideshare Rapist.” In a statement, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the city’s policy of not honoring ICE holds “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community.” The suspect, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is being held in jail in San Francisco in lieu of $4.2 million bail and faces life in prison in connection with the rapes of four women who got into his car believing him to be a ride-hail driver, police said.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the

Veni, vidi, vici. That’s what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says “The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt.” Delete “almost” and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trump’s tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failed—ending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in

Yesterday’s hearing on Capitol Hill featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok quickly turned into a political firefight among lawmakers, but overall it was a damning illustration of the toxic culture that exists within the Washington, D.C., beltway. At one point, Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy confronted the former investigator over some anti-Trump texts he had sent. In 2016, after FBI lawyer Lisa Page asked Strzok if Trump would ever become the president, his response was, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” Republican committee members read a number of Strzok’s vitriolic texts about Donald Trump and his supporters, and at one point

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over
