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.

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.

Hours after Houthi militants in Yemen launched a new missile at Saudi Arabia on December 19, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, took her blue seat at the horseshoe-shaped table of the Security Council. “Thankfully,” she said, “the missile was intercepted before it could hit its intended target,” which apparently was a palace in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. “But the very fact of this attack is a flashing red siren for this council.” Backed by Iran, Haley said, the Houthis have fired missiles at civilians before. “Unless we act,” she warned, the latest one “won’t be the

How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed
power to force government shutdown
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/22/2018 4:42:20     Post Reply
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

The Hollywood Tide Turns on Woody Allen

Woody Allen won an Academy Award, the fourth of his career, just six years ago for writing Midnight in Paris. He was nominated again two years later for Blue Jasmine, a film that won Cate Blanchett a Best Actress Oscar. The last year that Allen didn’t release a movie in theaters that he wrote and directed was 1981. Despite the controversy that has dogged him since the early 1990s—when he was revealed to be having an affair with his girlfriend’s daughter and was subsequently accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow—Allen has continued to make movies with the same

You wouldn´t know these were boom times with the stock market at all-time highs and unemployment near all-time lows if you were in the nation´s capital. Washington, D.C., is a city of hate. When you visit, it appears no one can stand each other. The two political sides are at each other´s throats so constantly it´s hard to imagine they sleep. Maybe they don´t. And then there are the sides within the sides, always ready for more gnashing of teeth, mutual hostility, and endless contempt. Talk about the cliché "can´t stand prosperity" — that´s what we have.

Kelly, who takes over “Today” at 9 a.m., had “congratulated” Kotb, “Mean Girls”-style, when the latter landed Matt Lauer’s job.

Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has abandoned objective journalism to cultivate obsessive hatred for President Donald Trump. It has “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once distinguished broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit TV show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie, literally jumped over a shark while water skiing with his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and

The partial shutdown of the U.S. government that started Saturday is a testament to the inability of our two major political parties to do anything but kowtow to their respective bases, and their failure to sit down together to work out a deal. Isn´t it great? Far from being an embarrassment, these shutdowns show regular Americans, wielding only the power to vote in national elections every two years, are kings and queens of the realm. Look what politicians will do for a vote. Democrats will let the government shut down just to show their allegiance to the Dreamers. Republicans will let it shut

It has been nearly a month since Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code since the 1980s. Of the 185-page bill’s many provisions, perhaps the most consequential is a reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Among the tax bill’s leading opponents was Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who was scathing in her denunciation of what she called the “GOP Tax Scam.” Shortly before the final vote, she delivered a blistering speech on the Senate floor. “Today is

Democrats are threatening to shut down the federal government, refusing to pass a spending bill unless it contains a path to legal status for the so-called “Dreamers” protected under President Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. Are the Democrats really concerned with the status of these young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, or with reforming our broken immigration system? No. They are trying to score political points. Let’s review: Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., recently went to a closed-door meeting at the White House to push his immigration plan. He was so genuinely intent on getting a bipartisan deal

Welcome to what’s arguably the nation’s largest infrastructure project and California’s biggest boondoggle. The highly hyped bullet train has been a challenge from the start. No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers.
