Here is what I said about something from nothing.

It's amazing how different things look when spun by the other side.

The winning is happening and battles are being won but I think he's losing the war. Especially by attacking some of his staunches allies. Sessions and now Tillerson is "taking a few days off" coincidentally after not toeing the presidents line on the Saudi/Qatar issue.

If Trump wants to be surrounded by Yes men he may as well just fire everyone and run the goddamn government by himself. He wanted experts but he seems to value loyalty far above expertise.

Despite that he's more than happy to fill in spots with Never Trumpers, his buddies from the silver spoon brigade, and people known the have donated massively to democrats before.

His initiatives have gone to shit
  • we have no wall and funding has been ripped out of the language of every budget
  • we have no Obamacare repeal, much less replacement
  • we have no Congressional support
  • we have accidental and anecdotal lower illegal immigration numbers
  • in the meantime scores of federally funded institutions are taking it upon themselves to blithely spit in the face of his immigration stance and are getting away with it
  • his 2nd amendment promises haven't even been brought up

It's like Obama is till in office.

I understand there is only so much he can do in 7 months but so far he's not been able to make any progress on the two large ticket items he campaigned on. Repealing Obamacare and illegal immigration.

Not only that but he's been slapped in the face at every turn on these two issues by the decidedly liberal media and every institution with a voice while conservative institutions have largely tried to take the moral high ground and stayed above the fray.

Just look at the mess around the colleges. No one stands up for the hardworking American students or even international students paying good money and in the country legally.

One bite at a time but we're not seeing ANY short term bites that make any sense.

10,000 new ICE agents are going to help... over the next few years.
Law suits against Sanctuary cities will help... over the next few years

Revoke federal funds from bunch of these colleges before the next school year starts, and do it in a location in the states where the courts are friendly to conservative values, and let's see what happens.

LOL. Lunacy.

* The most conservative SCOTUS judge in generations; at 49 his impact will continue for decades.
* Conservative judges being placed all throughout the federal system.
* Regulation after regulation tossed aside through executive action; fourteen particularly terrible Obama regs are dead permanently through use of the Congressional Review Act.
* Oil pipelines back in business.
* TPP (sellout of American workers to corporate interests) is dead.
* Out of the Paris climate deal (sellout of American taxpayers to liberal elites, liberal global institutional interests, and lying liars using pseudo-science to line their pockets).
* Illegal immigration collapsing and deportations up.
* Mexico city abortion policy back in business, stopping taxpayer money going to international abortion.
* The media, the academy, Hollywood, and liberal elites in general FREAKING THE HELL OUT and exposing themselves for the lunatics they actually are.

This is "like Obama is still in office?" lol, nope.

He can win battles and lose the war. Among those I'll definitely agree SCOTUS might be worth the Trump win in and of itself.

A majority of the remaining issues are one act of our rebellious and shitty federal Congress or appeasement focused state legislatures away from reversal or nullification.

What's left is just 3.5 years away from renewal when Trump loses because he can't win the tent pole issues on Immigration and Obamacare. Much less all the distractions he causes himself, especially when he turns on his allies.

Jeff Sessions does NOT deserve the public dressing down he is getting. Flynn did not deserve being left out in the wind. Tillerson should not be "taking a break". Spicer should not have felt forced to resign.

The White House should not be the D.C. branch of Goldman Sachs.

These are all troubling things and point to systemic problems if speed bumps and disagreements are all it takes to gain Trumps ire enough for the inner circle to consider or actually leave the position.

Yes men don't get shit done.

At this time in history I completely agree with the assertion Germany needs more real Germans who won't grovel and feel their version of "White Guilt". For them the wound is still very raw so they cut deeper to bleed more and hope to show the arterial suffering they are willing to go through to make amends.

Sweden needs more Swedes, Britain more actual Brits and the Eastern Block states are on the right track fighting the EU to protect their sovereignty.

No. You're wrong.

* Conservative SCOTUS - not going anywhere.
* Conservative judges - not going anywhere.
* Congressional Review Act - used to toss 14 onerous Obama regs...which can NEVER be reimplemented as is. EVER, as per the CRA law.
* Oil pipelines - the spigot doesn't turn off very easily.
* TPP - This is a political loser the Dems won't be reanimating any time soon.
* Paris climate deal - The senate, including Dems, will not be voting this into force under ANY president.

Illegal immigration and funding abortions are the only two on the list that would surely rise again with a Dem president. The rest are solid and long lasting accomplishments.

To me it looks like they set a trap for stupid Democrats that feel they can open up with those people. Anything they learn will be reported back to Trump and at the same time bogus information is fed back, which always "leaks" to the mainstream media. In the end the Republicans are several steps ahead (they've won every special election this year) and the media falls for more fake news looking even more irrelevant by the day.

Again, I'm not saying he's not winning battles, but he's losing the war. He needs more organized outreach and less talking about him and his personal and personnel issues. Twitter and MSM isn't doing it. It's time for his own channel or something so these victories are compiled by more than "awful" Alt-Right white nationalist scum like Dice (which is how he's usually described and why most of his YouTube videos aren't monetized).

If it takes a Dice video to show the Winning, we are in trouble because Progressives show footage and montages every day, every hour, of every Trump misstep.

We already discussed this one. Hopefully he gets at least one more before he's done when Gisburg retires, but I think she'll try to hold out as long as possible. She may end up dying before retiring, out of spite.

Quote:

And the next Progressive President will just replace as many conservative judges with Progressive judges, just like Trump is doing. This is not an irreversible act.

Semantics can reintroduce anything.

Quote:

Yes, this one is pretty much in place. Glad those obstructions were finally removed. Even with EPA restrictions later on people will revolt if the price of energy goes up too much because of interference here.

Quote:

I'm less worried about Dems here than I am RINOs which still make up a vast majority of the houses of Congress. It is massively clear as we can see their yellow belly attempts to deal with Obamacare and push through actual immigration reform while they have control of the entire legislative process.

Quote:

Reducing America's prosperity at the alter of Climate Change will last only as long as Trump is around to Veto any National effort. Local and State efforts are already underway and painful. For example the new $0.12 per gallon gas tax in CA in part due to environmental efforts soaking money from other coffers. On what is already one of, if not the, highest gas tax in the nation.

You don't think they'll come up with something worse than Paris to combat the Climate Change boogeyman? Especially since "we've lost so much traction since Trump took office we need to be extra aggressive".

Wrong perspective. The next president may appoint judges to positions previously held by liberals, by conservatives, or by a balanced mix of the two. The point is that Trump is putting conservative judges in place NOW and that will not be reversible. That's a WIN.

Overturning progressive regulations and sticking a fork in the reintroduction of the same thing is a WIN. Those regs are dead and reintroducing anything similar would take years of studies, bureaucratic hoops, and the like.

Politicians like to be reelected, and massive trade deals that harm American workers are very, very negative politically right now. Getting out of the TPP is a WIN and a big one.

Quote:

Pulling out of the Paris 'accords' (an illegally entered into treaty that Obama refused to submit to the Senate for ratification, the same thing he did with his 'deal' with Iran) is a WIN.

I think living in California has so steeped you in progressive fascism that you are almost unable to recognize the wins. There have been a lot of them, even in the face of 'D' and 'GOPe/RINO' resistance.

Cheer up! Enjoy the fireworks as progs and RINOs go nuts!

But the conventional wisdom is wrong. Trump isn't merely going to lose. He's going to lose in the biggest popular vote landslide in modern presidential history.
lulz.

Yes, the progressiveness here is OPPRESSIVE to anyone not in the Prog gang.

I feel like part of the 5th column or something. Can't let anyone know I'm a Christian Conservative NRA member or it'll put a target on my back. Just gotta keep on the downlow, follow up on all the NRA bulletins, and vote for REAL conservative stuff when I can.

I have no idea how much damage would happen to my car if I put a Trump or anti-immigration bumper sticker on it. Probably like Patrick Swayze's car in Roadhouse after they got done slashing the tires and breaking all the windows.
