After the above items this one takes more of a positive turn. Quote: "This is not a time for blue-ribbon panels or ten-year projections or hand wringing from the usual suspects about how hard change is. We needed a force of nature, a nuclear reactor of change energy that will upset countless apple carts and raise countless eyebrows. And we got it. Trump sees issues as a negotiation. He opens with a position that may seem absurd, then dials it back, seeming more reasonable and measured in the process, pleased to reach what looks like a compromise but was really what he wanted all along. If that seems like a haphazard way to govern, it is worth reviewing whether any other way has been worth a flip for the last few decades. So here it is. Real change. Bringing with it real nervousness, real opposition, even real hysteria from some. But if President Donald Trump can surprise us in office as thoroughly as he did on the way to that office, the future may hold something that has become a ridiculed concept hijacked in the bombast of the era of Obama: real hope." http://townhall.com/columnists/markdavis/2017/01/20/this-is-what-real-change-was-always-going-to-look-like-n2274236?
This is an interesting discussion of the rise of leftist dysfunction. The losses suffered in the election are consequencial. Quote: "Not a single person -- more than 60 million fellow citizens -- can be forgiven or excused for casting a ballot for Donald Trump. Each and every one of them (including millions of racial minorities, it must be said) did so for unacceptable reasons, rendering them unworthy of empathy. Ironically, this is precisely the sort of "dehumanization" leftists constantly and often hysterically lament; a right-wing phenomenon they perceive around every corner. But this is different, you see, because shut up. When Hillary Clinton attacked "half" of Trump's backers as "deplorable," millions of people rightly objected. She retreated. Now faced with a crushing political loss, some of the Left's worst offenders have taken to lashing out in an even nastier clumsier manner, apparently determined to step up their demeaning slanders against tens of millions of Americans. This attitude has already backfired on them, but they're doubling down. Perhaps because they've forgotten how to argue in good faith. Or perhaps because they never learned in the first place." http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2016/11/16/liberal-writer-theres-no-such-thing-as-a-good-trump-voter-n2246396?
After reading the above this item exposes the truth regarding "oh so concerned liberals, progressives and Democrats". https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/one-takeaway-from-trumps-inauguration-speech-gangs/ She is the kind of person the progressive/liberal left admire. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/madonna-womens-march-washington-march/2017/01/21/id/769778/? Secret Service is investigating Madonna. https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/24/secret-service-to-investigate-madonna/ Here is another one. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/01/rachel_maddow_stupidly_compares_trump_to_nazis.html One more. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4142950/Thousands-women-head-Washington-protest-Trump.html Lastly, consider this. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/01/half_a_million_women_marching_for_hypocrisy.html Such a shame the sorry excuses the icons the political left hold in high regard. Dishonesty and destruction are words that fit so many of their words and deeds. The irony is that what they attribute to those who oppose them is exactly what they are and do.
The left claims they own the high ground of moral superiority in most things, including in this case the claim total absence of any racist proclivities whatever. The lack of decency, honesty and extreme hypocrisy belies their self righteous claims. http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/7-other-extremist-outrages-from-democrat-john-lewis/ Another view of this so called "icon". http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/01/sorry_but_i_do_not_concede_moral_authority_to_john_lewis.html
But, the fact is as this item suggests they are the party of "Hate That Hates Hate". Quote: "Liberals find themselves supporting violent criminals and Communists because, in the partisan political calculus of the Democrat Party, all Republicans are presumed to be guilty of “hate.” The anti-Trump media ignore any evidence that contradicts this claim, so that Madonna’s fantasies of blowing up the White House and the insane rage of inauguration protesters are not viewed as dangerous. Instead, allegedly objective journalists like NBC’s Chuck Todd denounce Trump as “surprisingly divisive.” This description of the president’s inaugural address made no sense to anyone outside the Beltway media bubble. Trump’s speech actually expressed a non-partisan spirit: “What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.” https://spectator.org/the-hate-that-hates-hate/
What a difference!!! Obama's presidency was always about Obama. Trump's first speech as President was all about "We the people". http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/20/trump-inaugural-address-focuses-on-we-leaves-himself-out-of-speech-almost-entirely/
This item provides insight into a book written by a veteran reporter and author which that unless we do something and soon the problems Europe is facing will start happening here. http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/americans-must-act-or-suffer-europes-islamic-fate/
The political left has long sponsored civil unrest/anarchy for political purposes. This item provides a brief summary. Quote: "Opponents of President-elect Donald Trump's have accused him of "inspiring violence" and bringing out the worst in people. Wrong. The active and passive sponsors of left-wing political mayhem are the ones guilty of enabling it over the past quarter-century. Restoring peace and justice starts with restoring law and order. Either you're against the rule of the mob or you're with it." http://townhall.com/columnists/michellemalkin/2017/01/18/sponsors-of-anarchy-n2273011?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl&newsletterad
This is a logical follow-on to the previous item. The left can be expected to disrupt normal life for most of us for at least the next four years. Quote: "Normalcy. It’s what we want, and liberals want to deny it to us in order to doom Donald Trump and reopen their path back into power. So how will they do it? Constant resistance at every turn. They will ignore norms and rules – remember, norms and rules are only supposed to constrain us. They will lie, cheat, and engage in any conduct that they believe will help their hateful cause. A huge part of the progressive effort will go toward policing their own for any weakness or faltering in their lockstep opposition to everything Trump and the GOP do. Take that, Springsteen cover band! How dare you perform the Boss’s hackneyed anthems for the president? The good thing is we will get to watch four to eight years of the left devouring itself. I’m already stockpiling the popcorn." http://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/01/18/and-now-the-lefts-war-on-normal-americans-truly-begins-n2273101?
This is a good assessment of the massive failures of following progressive policies. It is a warning to us all that we must reject the delusions they espouse, propaganda they spew, hateful mantras they chant and unsavory actions they take. http://townhall.com/columnists/allenwest/2017/01/23/the-grand-delusion-of-the-progressive-left-n2275721?
These are the type leaders the political left lauds. People who bash Republicans and extol the wonders of socialism and communism. That is where they want to take us. Why else do you think their language is used to belittle, impugn, degrade Republicans and conservatives in general and Trump in specific? They can see his cabinet members and publically stated policies are far superior to Obama's surpass anything Hillary would/could do. They see that his performance even before taking office makes Obama look terribly inept. They don't like that so they are doing everything possible to publically run him down. Meanwhile they fondly recall the wondrous Obama reign. The fact is that their own political interests trump those of the county. They cannot stand Trump's promises to reduce government oppression of the people at every turn. http://www.redstate.com/jimjamitis/2017/01/16/martin-omalley-equates-republicans-nazis-kkk-serenades-utah-commie-anthem/
This item discusses the nefarious activities the vastly wealthy Rockefeller family and their consequential results/implications, especially in the area of climate change. Quote: "As the man-made global-warming theory implodes amid decades with no warming, and the theory's backers are left with egg all over their faces, it is time for Americans and perhaps even Congress to take a more serious look at the Rockefeller machine. In addition to the “climate” scam, the Rockefellers have bankrolled everything from racist eugenics and abortion to the deliberate dumbing down of the American people via so-called “education.” It is time for the light to be shined on their machinations." http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/24980-new-report-exposes-rockefeller-dynasty-s-role-in-climate-scam
