Still supporting trump


#21

Well, I am glad some have seen the light. AS for the Egghead Progressive, who seems more moral? John F Kennedy, or Donald Trump?

Yeah, progs always resort to the morality clause, or the decent Human scenario when they have zero else to criticize. It happens when someone they fear, excels. The HAVE to bring him down, before anyone gets wise. It is all political.

They are unaware that Trump was the first Resort owner in West Palm Beach, to petition to allow Blacks and Jews into his Country Club.
They forget that Trump sent his own 757 to bring a very sick boy East for a life saving operation, and has to spend tens of thousands of dollars to provide needed medical equipment for the boy, in spite of the Airlines refusing to do so.
They forgot that Trump bought Ed McMahon’s home out of foreclosure when Johnny Carson quit the Tonight Show, and allowed Ed to live there rent free, until he passed away.
Trump let Jennifer Hudson’s family stay at Trump Towers Rent free after the murders of her family.
Donald Trump gave the job of constructing Trump Tower to Barbara Res, making her the 1st woman to build a skyscraper.
Trump saved a Family Farm from Foreclosure, after hearing about the Husband committing Suicide trying to collect Insurance money to save the farm.
Trump sent a bus drive 10 grand for saving a woman from jumping off a bridge.
Trump sent Tahmooressi a nice 25,000 dollar check to help him get started after he was imprisoned in a Mexican Jail, chained to a bed for seven months.
Trump flew 200 stranded Marines home, when they became stranded due to logistics. No charge.

In '95, Trump’s limo had a flat tire. A couple noticed the problem, and the man fixed the tire. Trump asked how he could repay the kindness. The man asked Trump to send his wife, some flowers. When the flowers arrived, a note said, “We’ve paid off your mortgage.”

Trump is a good man and a Great President. For those of you who still hate the tweets, suffice it to say, that Trump is humiliating his opponents daily, and with the dishonesty and bias of the MSM, it is the only way we can be sure that we are getting the truth about Trump.
No one is perfect, but I’d have Trump over for BBQ, before I’d have any Democommie.

Trump helps people with his money. The democrat/socialists want to “help” people with other peoples money. Which one is morally bankrupt and which one has true Christian principles?

So he chases skirts, it’s a big club and nobody’s perfect. If he didn’t have some fault we’d have to canonize him.


#23

J. Anderson thinks that all presidents should grow government and raise taxes like Obama did. The Democratic Party is now predominantly socialist, and those who are not will be expelled shortly. Any president who does not support that agenda should be removed from office in the Democrat world.

We didn’t like Obama, but we tolerated him. That’s a big difference between the parties.

I am a totally unapologetic capitalist. I have studied how socialism works from the economic and historical perspectives, and the results have frequently been quite ugly. Democrats love to point to Scandinavia say that is their ideal. What they don’t realize is that the governments have very high taxes and promises of great social services, but the government does not own the means of production. Scandinavian governments even have less regulations than we do.


#24

But almost INFINITELY higher taxes than we do, Sendgop. The AVERAGE Swede pays about 65% in all forms of taxation. The wealthiest, often pay as much as 80%. Denmark is nearly as bad and it’s becoming almost IMPOSSIBLE for the average Dane to save enough to buy a house or even a car.


#25

Yeah and I almost forgot that the Anointed One was a self-confessed dope smoking slacker before he became a undocumented Ivy League student, a Community Organizer AKA Shakedown Artist, play for pay state legislator and domestic terrorist BFF. Moral clarity for sure.


#26

I’m sure all of you passionate capitalists are therefore outraged by Trump’s crony capitalism, destructive protectionism, and his commie belief that government picking winners and losers works better than free markets.


#27

What “crony capitalism” are you referring to, JA? And there’s nothing “destructive” about the protectionism that’s being practiced by President Trump and he CERTAINLY doesn’t believe in picking winners and losers. You’re confusing him with his predecessor, apparently.


#28

For arguments from professional economists, see, for example:

Samuel Staley (the author of this piece accusing Trump of crony capitalism, and worse) is a conservative economist whose previous work has included arguing that Obamacare was akin to fascism.

The irony is hard to ignore. Trump was elected on a wave of conservative populism fed up with the progressive policies of Barack Obama. The Tea Party was the tangible political backlash to federal overreach, Wall Street bailouts, and government takeovers of failing private businesses deemed “too big to fail.” Yet now, President Trump is blowing big holes through what few barriers still existed to protect private enterprise from federal government meddling.

In jettisoning a free market, the Trump administration is showing little restraint in adopting the same tactics used by political progressives to pursue his own priorities, which are becoming more partisan and less principled with each passing month.


#29

Trump is not engaged in “protectionism;” it is negotiation, which something you Democrats know nothing about. If you spent more time studying the news instead of hating Trump, you might have noticed that. Trump has already stated that he would prefer a world without tariffs, but I’m sure you have missed that during you continuous fits of rage.

The good paying jobs are in manufacturing. Many of the low paying ones are in the service industries. Trump is negotiating to get a fair deal for U.S. workers. Obama told us those jobs were gone and not coming back. Obama has already been proven wrong on that point.


#30

We have also been told that Paul Krugman of the New York Times is also a “conservative.” That statement is a joke. You put a label on anybody, but it doesn’t give them credentials.


#31

I will admit that there were some Republicans running in 2016 that were worse or no better than Hillary and I would not have voted for them, Donald Trump was NOT one of then. I’m thinking of Kasich and JEB. While there is evidence of corruption against Hillary, Biden and Obama, I have yet to see any evidence of corruption in the Trump administration. It might be there, somewhere, do you have any examples?

  1. He follows the rule of law, complying with ridiculous court orders until they are overturned.

  2. He has gone overboard in his co-operation with the fraudulent Mueller investigation, e.g. not claiming attorney-client privilege or executive privilege in many cases where he arguably could have.

  3. He has moved our embassy to the capital city of our best ally, Israel.

  4. He has made sincere efforts with the Democrats to normalize the DACA aliens in exchange for common sense immigration reforms.

  5. He has met Syrian use of chemical weapons with action and not just pious words.

  6. He is working constantly to correct unfair trade practices against America.

  7. He is confronting the quagmire of Iran and the PRK that ALL of his predecessors have created.

  8. He has pressured NATO to step up to the plate and comply with their financial obligations now that they are only ones truly benefiting from its existence.

  9. He has drastically reduced oppressive bureaucratic regulations as he promised to do.

  10. He has given the green light to Keystone.

  11. He has promoted and signed tax cuts which, with his other actions, has propelled our economy.

  12. He has nominated judges who respect the Constitution as he promised he would.

I could go on but yes, I contend that he is a great president.


#32

I agree. I’m at a loss to understand from where the left gets the idea that ANYTHING that this President OR members of his administration have done are “corrupt.” The only thing that makes any sense is that they think it’s somehow “corrupt” to beat Hillary when their polls all assured them she was a shue-in. They’ve never even considered that maybe it was the polls that were corrupt…which they were. They were DESIGNED to convince voters that “resistance” is futile. That Hillary WAS going to be the next President and there was no use wasting their votes on Trump…or even on the “Green Party” candidate.


#33

I believe that the uber-left is competing on another plane of existence. Post-Modernism: there are no objective facts or objective definitions with name-calling, intimidation, blackmail and violence as their substitutes and their only “arguments” against anything contrary to their “infallible” group-think. Logical arguments, rational thought are, in their religion, not useful tools but part of the problem and must be eliminated.

Ask them to define racism, fascism, or any of their phobia slurs and their brains will short circuit and they will return to the name-calling mantras.

Most of the remaining traditional liberal democrats are being intimidated into embracing this insanity or being purged. The GOP has it’s problems but the democrats are in a much deeper hole.


#34

The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting process here.

To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.

But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.

The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making.

Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people. At best, he has invoked these ideals in scripted settings. At worst, he has attacked them outright.

In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic.

And on it goes.


#35

A senior member of Trump’s administration is saying that the president has no moral principles (which is obvious, let’s be honest), and that many other members of the administration agree with him. It’s worth reading the entire piece.

Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.

But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.


#36

No one who is afraid to add his name to such a piece can be believed about ANYTHING. If this “anonymous source” thinks him keeping his/her job is more important than telling the truth, then he/she is a corrupt idiot.


#37

You elected a monster. Try to have the grace, wits, and moral decency to admit it and help us clean up this mess.


#38

BS. President Trump is doing a magnificent job as President. We don’t CARE if he’s pissing off a bunch of career bureaucrats who aren’t used to his “style”.


#39

Anonymous. New York Times. Gimme a break.

I’ll judge the President by the FACTS outlined in my last post.

You got any FACTS J?


#40

I can answer FOR him. He has NONE.

The left is GREAT at throwing out accusations. After that trip down that escalator, Trump suddenly, for the first time in his life, became a racist, homophobe, xenophobe and a woman-hating idiot. PRIOR to that escalator ride, he was the darling of the so-called “intelligencia” and they clamored to be seen and photographed with him, awarded him kudos for “caring” about those in need and lauded him for his philanthropy. They immediately hated him for the off-chance that he might threaten their annointed one, Hillary Rodham Clinton even while insisting that he had NO POSSIBLE CHANCE of beating her. When he DID beat her, they refused to internalize the reality of that win and IMMEDIATELY got their minions to start the process of invalidating the election. J. Anderson is merely ONE of those minions.
