Tiresome Trump Derangement

Over the last couple of weeks, the Democrat Party has come out on the side of the terrorists who planned 9-11, the fanatical mullahs who run Iran and foment global terror, and the murderously violent street gang MS-13 who are known for hacking people to death with machetes.

The attacks against CIA nominee Gina Haspel are particularly disingenuous. If she had been nominated by Obama, the Democrats and media would be replete with stories about courageously shattering the glass ceilings at Langley by appointing the first female CIA Director. Instead, they thought about bringing one of the terrorists who plotted the 9-11 attacks in to testify against her. They wanted to make the case that she was unfit to serve because of “torture” policies that were in place under her boss and predecessor, John Brennan, who was appointed by Obama and approved by a Democrat Majority Senate 63-34.

Democrats also postured when Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal. Remember, Slate once ran an article titled “What Iran Can Teach America About LGBTQ Rights.” Their thesis was that even though Iran is an oppressive, Islamic-Supremacist regime that systematically butchers gays. Donald Trump was actually worse because… well, he just was. And so, LGBTQ had to protest, resist, and vote Democrat forever.

Then, earlier this week, Trump fulfilled a campaign promise made by both his Republican and Democrat predecessors and moved the US embassy in Israel to the Israel capital of Jerusalem. Palestinians tried to rush the Israeli border with Molotov cocktails and small arms, 50 Hamas terrorists and 12 human shields got themselves killed, and the media blamed Trump, of course. The left claims to be outraged that Israel used “disproportionate force” in repelling the Palestinian attack. What a stupid, stupid talking point. Why the hell would anyone be obligated to only use proportional force in defending oneself from an attack? The aggressor does not get to choose how the defender is allowed to defend himself.

Also, during the Gaza riots, a miracle happened: a crippled Palestinian got up and walked.

Then, yesterday, PDT was at a Sanctuary Cities forum in California where he referred to the violent, malevolent animals of MS-13 as “animals.” The media edited his comments and claimed he was referring to all illegal immigrants as “animals.” The same people who have no problem calling NRA members “terrorists” are suddenly incensed that the president called a violent criminal gang “animals.”

But I begin to think that even the people who hate Trump are beginning to tire of it. CNN (and I know this because it’s on in the break room at work) has become a round-the-clock Trump-slam. It’s anti-Trump derangement verges into Onion-territory sometimes (the pic below is not a ‘shop). And it’s ratings, which weren’t good to begin with, are off 30%.

The least covered Big Story in the media right now is the severe leftward lurch of the Democrat Party. Four avowed Socialists won primary elections in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Democrats on the city council of Seattle, led by an avowed socialist who once proposed confiscating the Boeing aircraft factory, just forced through a punitive anti-business tax. Progressive Democrats from Andrew Cuomo to Dianne Feinstein are being challenged from their left by candidates in the socialist Bernie Sanders mode. Sanders himself, absent some chicanery from the DNC, would very likely have been the party’s nominee for president in 2016.

  1. What a stupid, stupid talking point. Why the hell would anyone be obligated to only use proportional force in defending oneself from an attack? The aggressor does not get to choose how the defender is allowed to defend himself.

    Well, yes, but… how dare you…

  3. All the Democrats have to do to win is be sane, and they can’t manage it.

  4. But they aren’t making mistakes, TnnseNe1, as I am sure you know…that’s the really sad part…it’s all deliberate…deliberate and liberal have the same root word by the way…interesting……the most irritating thing about all of this the liberals are deliberate liars

  5. As far as I am concerned, it’s just super annoying, beyond silly, that to only convey a proper meaning, we have to systematically put the qualifier “classical” in front of “liberal”, which has otherwise been hijacked by socialists and communists for decades by now.

  6. “Tiresome” indeed. A mild way to put it.

    Must be some kind of marathon or sumthin’

  7. Tadford, the Democrat’s plan, in of itself, is a mistake. Let them run with it. The voting base is almost equally split between liberals, conservatives and moderates. The Democrat’s plan really only appeals to liberals. I find that liberals, for the most part, live in echo chambers and do not associate with those outside their chamber. Therefore, they think everyone thinks as they do. This is their mistake.

  8. I agree with you, TnnsNe1. They really do not associate with ANYONE outside their think bubble.

    So, let them think everyone is like them.

    It will lead to a lot of errors on their part, I believe.

  10. You are right Tnnsen1 and Charlotte. This makes them more bigoted than most too

  11. Per the last paragraph, Keith Ellison wants to decide corporate pay scales.

    Comment by Ignatius — May 17, 2018 @ 1:52 pm - May 17, 2018

  12. Among the wet dreams of Bernie Sanders, Keith Ellison, and the likes of them, it likely includes turning the whole of corporate America into a mix of the DMV and US Post Office of giant proportions — one might then wonder if the late USSR was nothing but a collective hallucination.

    Comment by Cyril J. — May 17, 2018 @ 3:24 pm - May 17, 2018

  13. Ellison makes $174,000 per year as a Senator. His net worth in 2016 was : -$149,498.

    That is freaking funny.

  14. is the Israeli border the new Lourdes?

    @3 all the democrats need to do to take the senate and the house is repeal obamacare

  15. @12 – Cyril: as an aside, I’ve spent the last year or so attempting to manage my parents’ affairs. This has involved interacting with various bureaucracies, public and private.

    So far, government agencies, including the IRS(!) have been much easier to deal with than private businesses that are shot through with willful stupidity and incorrigible incompetence.

    My point is that bureaucracy-hell isn’t restricted to the DMV (which, here in my corner of Kansas, is fairly well run).

    It’s been quite an education – privatization isn’t a cure-all.

    @13: A congress-critter with a modest net worth isn’t near as disturbing as a congressional lifer with a net worth in seven or eight figures.

  16. The New York Times comes clean in regards to the misleading article about the Russian investigation back in October. Huh.

  17. A congress-critter with a [declared*] modest net worth isn’t near as disturbing as a congressional lifer with a net worth in seven or eight figures.

    * – That just means he’s either much-better than most concealing his gains, or he’s too-incompetent to be a Federal politician. Either-way he deserves even greater scrutiny. Wife, children, brother, cousin, in-laws; someone’s on the take or has both hands in the till.

    i.e. Former Sen. Harry Reid was a cop before graduating law school, and was in appointed or elected political office since law school; yet somehow accumulated a 8-digit personal fortune, as well as his sons becoming millionaires.

  18. @15, “that are shot through with willful stupidity and incorrigible incompetence.” A side effect of low unemployment.

    It is not a modest net worth, it is a negative net worth.

  19. Great points. If I was from Mars, I’d wonder why the Dems are campaigning for their opponent in 2020.

  20. Hi V the K,
    “If she had been nominated by Obama…”
    Yep, if that happened, it would be hypocritical. Out of curiosity, do you think that Obama would have nominated her? I don’t think so and I am betting you think the same way. He wouldn’t because he wouldn’t want to go through the whole torture thing again–and because he knew that plenty Dems would be pissed at that nomination. I think Republicans would have liked it though …

    “Democrats also postured when Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal…” As well as plenty of world leaders, past and present security specialists, etc. But Netanyahu and the Saudi Crown Prince like it, including Gulf States, since oil prices will likely recover …

    ” 50 Hamas terrorists and 12 human shields got themselves killed, and the media blamed Trump, of course. The left claims to be outraged that Israel used “disproportionate force” in repelling the Palestinian attack. ”
    A good point to make, but then, why not talk about the > 1000 wounded? Are those Hamas, or human shields, or protestors or what? I think it is the level of those casualties that is making people take notice as it does not fit the neat narrative you want to offer.

    “The least covered Big Story in the media right now is the severe leftward lurch of the Democrat Party. Four avowed Socialists won primary elections in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Democrats on the city council of Seattle, led… just forced through a punitive anti-business tax.”
    SO, its interesting that the four socialist candidates are women–they unseated four male opponents. Score one for women and potential female representation in the currently all male representation. As for Seattle, yes, the tax is not well thought out, but do you know why they raised it? To pay for more police; i.e., to get more law and order. Who would have thought a soft on crime socialist would do that?

    The cases you choose are more interesting than you give them credit for, V the K. They “sort of” support your narrative if you look at them sideways AND they also support other narratives that do not fit so neatly into your view of the world.
    Cheers
    Cas

  21. Cats, the wounded are 1) Hamas or other terrorist groups or 2) willing human shields for the same. Israel didn’t seem them out — they charged at the border, openly stating their intention to break into Israel and murder people.

    The Israelis actually showed incredible restraint. They could have — justifiably — used heavy weapons like mortars or machine guns.

  22. Cas (#20), the Seattle tax was not for police, as I understand it, but for homeless programs. I think it’s a stupid tax as it punishes the achievers in the city.

    Pawfurbehr (#9), that (and the resulting taxes) is why I am not returning to my ancestral home.

  24. Hi TheQuietMan,
    Thanks for your reply. I checked out your claim. You are right. I had looked up another proposed increase from the year before! Thanks for spotting my error.

  25. USA today actually agreed with Trump that the MS 13 are animals.

  26. USA today actually agreed with Trump that the MS 13 are animals.

    Pawfurbehr, that column was written by Caleb Howe (who, with his brother Ben, are conservative writers), a member of their Board Of Contributors, which is a stable of wackjobs-with-a-rational-one-or-two-thrown-in columnists so they can say they represent a variety of viewpoints.

    Rest assured, their editorial board agrees that the comment by POTUS reflected his deep hatred of The Other, but most especially racial minorities and immigrants and that he was expressing that animus in his “animals” remark, which had absolutely nothing to do with violent gang members from Latin & Central America (who, as we are told, would make better dating partners than the average Republican).

    Yeah, I’m much more distrustful of someone who has a negative net worth or claims that he/she “can’t afford to live in Washington”. It’s one thing to be frugal and live modestly but to claim that you have to sleep in your office in order to make ends meet on a salary that is upwards of $200K/year strikes most Americans as a little out-of-touch, even in an area with a high cost-of-living. I remember an anecdote from the House Bank scandal which mentioned that the majority of congressmembers in office at that time had credit records so poor that they would be unable to qualify for a credit card if not for the courtesy card issued to Members Of Congress by American Express. And these are the people who are deciding how the federal government should raise and spend money?

    One can say many things about Nancy Pelosi, but as one of the wealthiest congressmembers and someone who is truly a Rich [Noun that rhymes with ‘witch’], I’m reasonably confident that she hasn’t abused her position to become so, even if it means having a successful husband to make that happen. Same with Representative Darrell “Protected by Viper!” Issa, who, for most filing periods, has been the wealthiest Member Of Congress. The Dingy Harry Reids are the exception to that, but it seems more of the current crop of senators and representatives (though mostly House members) are of the less-than-financially-successful variety.
