By: Brenson Stivitch. Whether you want to admit it or not, Donald Trump is succeeding. The stock market is at an all-time high. GDP growth is above 3%. He has appointed a conservative a Supreme Court Justice…with the possibility of appointing more (which may be the ultimate reason for Trump Derangement Syndrome). He has revitalized NATO. He has finally doing something about North Korea. He has succeeded in dealing with 4 major US tragedies in as many weeks with flying colors. He has re-stated Freedom of Religion as a foundation belief in the United States. He has called off the EPA. The stock market is at an all time high. Wages are rising again. All of this while Congress decides what a Republican majority should actually be doing.
He has reduced regulations in ways not seen before. He has called out the hypocrisy of the Washington establishment. His popularity rate is at 45%…add 10% on to that because he can’t be measured in normal polling…or much of the current polling was and is rigged. He has withstood non-stop attacks from left wing media types who have thrown everything they have at him and he is still standing. According to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Hillary Clinton’s wet dream Russian “collusion” investigation has gone nowhere…but they are going to keep it going just because. He re-established damaged ties with Israel. He has allowed a reboot of the military’s Rules of Engagement. He is rebuilding the military.
He has maneuvered through an inner circle of enemies. That may appear to be chaos, but he has the best Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State I have seen in my lifetime; the leaks have dried up; those that still happen are proven wrong over and over again. He is addressing the collapse of due process when males, accused of sexual impropriety, are viewed as being guilty until proven innocent. His Attorney General is addressing the collapse of free speech on American campuses. He is enforcing the immigration laws that are on the books while looking for ways to deal with problems such as the Dreamer issue. He has called out the violence on the left with groups like Antifa who have made left wing violence acceptable as political speech. He stood up to the NFL players and squishy team owners.
His most vocal critics have monopolized the airwaves, movies, theaters, television, sports…all aimed at crippling his presidency. He is bashed non-stop on late night television. It hasn’t worked and now these so-called late-night comedians are resorting to simple name calling and profanity. Threats of violence and portrayals of acts of violence against him and his supporters have become commonplace. But he continues unabated and unabashed.
More importantly…we finally have a politician who is not afraid to say what he thinks. How refreshing. If you don’t like it, that is your problem…not his.
If you are a left-wing whack job, you aren’t going to like him. If you are an establishment Republican, you aren’t going to like him. If you are global tech company trying to establish a monopoly, you aren’t going to like. If you are an environmental extremist, you aren’t going to like him. If you are a man-hater feminist, you aren’t going to like him . If you are a John Lennon “Imagine” no-borders person, you aren’t going to like him. If you are an educator who is steeped in American self-loathing and guilt, you aren’t going to like him. If you are a socialist, you aren’t going to like him.
Unfortunately, those are the people who have been running the show up until now. It may seem like a lot of people, but they are just the fringe of more central and normal groups of people. Those are the ones who like him.
For those who continue to whine, cry and complain…you have three more years to go. He doesn’t care what you think, and neither do I. Losing control of what you thought not only you owned but were entitled to is never easy. You don’t own this nation or its government. It belongs to all of us. Not just you. Get used to it.
