HuffPo Leftist Admits: President Trump is WINNING!
I have always loved winning. The only thing I love more than winning is NOT losing!
And when we Conservatives hitched our wagon to the Trump Train, we finally understood what it feels like to win.
For far too long, Conservatives became disciplined to losing. The establishment Republican politicians got us “moral victories,” and we felt good. Remember when the Republicans voted 100 percent against Obamacare, yet we still lost. And we had the majority in the Senate.
Most Conservatives walked away mumbling, “Well at least they tried.”
Trying isn’t good enough. We needed to win. And now we have a president in office who knows how to win.
That’s what it took, a person used to winning, achieving. You can’t buy a plot of land and not develop it into something magnificent, if you’re Donald Trump. He sees every issue in America as politicians creating ghettos where beautiful resorts should be.
Look at one of Donald Trump’s first proclamations around illegal immigration. He spoke truth about the topic, which certainly vexed the Left. He promised to stop illegal immigration and build a wall. Now as president, the wall plan is under development, and the impact of illegal immigration has lessened geometrically.
Next, Donald Trump tackled trade. President Trump has single-handedly taken over America’s trade policy, and reduced the trade deficit significantly. His recent visit to China will go down in history as one of the best trade negotiations in history, as he brought back $250 billion of business to American companies. Further, the Chinese significantly reduced tariffs on 183 products, thus allowing even more ability for America to balance our almost $350 billion deficit.
I could do on, but as HuffPo admits Trump is winning.
This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit: Trump is winning. In the brief space of a week, he won a brief court fight to shove Mick Mulvaney to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney wasted no time in unhinging a spate of consumer protection rulings, regulations, and personnel hires made during the Obama years.
His SCOTUS pick, Neil Gorsuch, eagerly cast a vote to impose the Muslim travel ban. His EPA head, Scott Pruitt, delivered a couple million acres of public monument land in the West to oil, gas, and coal industry developers. Trump busily continues to pack the federal judiciary with a parade of ultra-conservative, strict, constructionist Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia clones.
He switched gears and backed alleged pedophile Alabama judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, who almost certainly will win. The Republican National Committee, which had practically declared Moore a pariah, quickly jumped in and said it would back him. He got another sweet perk when Senate Democrats turned with a vengeance on Minnesota Senator Al Franken and virtually ordered him out of office. His subsequent resignation got rid of a pesky thorn for Trump. Franken had a big voice, lots of name recognition and popularity, and was not afraid to take shots at Trump.
He pooh-poohed the guilty plea of his former National Security Advisor Mike T. Flynn as no big deal while shouting “no collusion, no collusion” and got away with it.
Go ahead; have a good hearty winner’s laugh!
I love how Leftists see President Trump’s accomplishments. Losers now see what winning looks like.
Consider the dichotomy, as the Left lament all these “bad” decisions by President Trump, yet their lives improve dramatically. Try to rationalize how bad things are, as your job improves, your savings account grows, and you get more free time to enjoy America. At some point the realization kicks in that you’ve been lied to.
The article continues,
He got his tax heist for the rich and corporations through the Senate, and as an extra bonus, brought his long-held dream of dumping the Affordable Care Act closer to reality when the Senate tacked on a provision to the bill wiping out the mandate requirement. When the markets took another tick up he crowed even louder that he was the man who brought the good times rolling to America. As always, he did all this with the sheepish connivance of much of the mainstream media, which is always off to the races in giving round-the-clock coverage to his self-serving, vapid tweets as if they were the word from the Mount.
Trump’s biggest win, though, has come on three fronts. One is the GOP. It can rail and curse at him publicly and privately, but it needs Trump. He is more than the titular head of the GOP. He is the point man for GOP policy and issues and, in a perverse way, the spur to get action on them.
In other words, President Trump now teaches Republicans how to win.
Even the bonehead Leftist who authored this piece sees that. He realizes that it’s one thing for Trump to be a winner. But if he teaches others, Leftists are screwed.
Which brings me to his next point: Trump’s base.
The second front he’s winning on is the continuing love fest that his devout base has with him. While polls show that his overall approval ratings consistently wallow under forty percent, buried in the polling fine print is the numbers that mean the most to him and the GOP. That’s Republican voters. The overwhelming majority of whom back him. Even though his approval rating has dropped among white males without a college degree and Christian evangelicals, polls show that he still gets majority approval from them. These are the voters that the GOP will need Trump to rev up in the key swing districts in 2018. They’ll look to him to do just that. This is the voter loyalty that buys a lot of support from the GOP establishment even as they flail him or shake their head in disgust at his antics.
What an amazing admission!
The Left know that polls don’t matter, when it comes to President Trump’s support. Further, he realizes that President Trump pulls the GOP establishment along in the riptide of his popularity. He does this in the most unique way for politicians. He accomplishes things.
Finally, the writer notices who really controls the media.
The third winning front for Trump is his perennial ace in the hole: the media. He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media. He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. He will continue to suck the media air out of everything that the Democrats do and try to do. Take his phony war with the NFL owners over the national anthem protest by a handful of Black players. A couple of tweets from him knocking the owners for alleging caving into the players was more than enough to distract from his bumbling, inept, and dangerous handling of the North Korea nuclear threat, and his clueless saber rattle of Iran over the nuclear curtailment pact with the U.S.
This has been his patent ploy, distract and deflect. The public and networks take the bait every time. Other than in the New York Times and other liberal print publications, there is no real sobering, in-depth discussion of the dangerous and destructive consequences of his administration’s policies. But those publications are anathema to Trump devotees in the heartland and the south anyway. So the withering criticism of Trump in these publications is tantamount to a wolf howling in the wind.
Translated from “Bonehead” to sanity: Trump uses even the negative media of the Left to his advantage.
Look at the spate of fake news stories in the past week, and from multiple outlets. ABC apologized, as did the Washington Post. CNN has become a joke. Soon, America will see the media reporting the truth.
The Left have a long way to go to see things our way. But without Trump, we had no shot of showing them what winning looks like. It will take a bit longer, however they will adjust to the new normal.
