The inauguration, despite the very best efforts of the left, was hardly disrupted by the hate-Trumpers. Yes, they did wreak destruction on innocent business-persons with glass-front windows. Yes, they did get a chance to show us just how creepily diverse a bunch they are. But they didn’t convince us that our choice was wrong. On the contrary, watching them in action made all of us who support the President shudder with the close miss we had just experienced. The Election Deniers aren’t done yet. The very next day mobs of left-wing women gathered together in Washington to listen to hate speech and calls to violence from a bunch of Hollywood celebrities with a combined IQ of 75 and multiple stints in expensive loony-bins. Madonna led the spewers of bile with her dreams of blowing up the President. She is now reportedly being investigated for her incitement of violence. At the very least, I hope she gets escorted to FBI headquarters, one guy on each side, for a warning that her speech is not protected and that, should she continue such talk, a criminal case will be opened against her. Same should go for all the others on the left who think it’s not illegal to threaten to murder any Republican or disloyal Democrat, white, black or Hispanic, for nothing more than spite. These guys refuse to even consider a possible neutral position. As Lenin said, “He is who is not with us is against us.” These women get it.
Back to the marchers. They wore on their outraged heads inane little pink caps they knitted with their very own moral hands and called “pussies” (not, thankfully, anatomically correct). The adorable pussy outfits were accompanied by chants of childish angry slogans and expressions of cosmic unity and oneness among all women and the men in the crowd who also showed up as pussies. The ladies were up in arms that a man they dislike so much as they hate Trump could be president, and offered up a sea of fear and loathing for our amusement. Trump is now on notice that if he dares to declare abortion dead, he’ll be in trouble; or if he declares rape of women okay, he’s also gonna be in trouble. Likewise if he demands that all women immediately cease receiving any form of public assistance, Big Trouble awaits. If he opens internment camps for women, or tries to forcefully abort left-wing babies, just wait. Aside from all those warnings, they also tell us they want all their rights, which is a real head-scratcher. I think they think of “rights” as in “a right to engage in frequent irresponsible sexual encounters with or without birth control and to demand that other taxpayers pay for one’s birth control, STD treatments, abortions, or life-time costs for raising children born without the vaguest idea who their fathers were.” Those are what we call “aspirational” rights, i.e. the ones nobody can possibly guarantee. I’m really comforted to know that these women are out there, looking out for my interests. I’d like to know what rights I don’t have, too.
It’s hard for me to figure out if Trump is Hitler or Stalin, because the women frequently mentioned both Hitler and Vladimir Putin when dumping on our President (not theirs, of course). Trump is so bad, he could start his own world war.
I heard Trump’s inaugural speech the first time only in bits and pieces as I attended to other things, and it seemed a bit shallow. But when I heard the whole thing, I saw that it was an integral message and the message to the country’s leaders was clear. Take care of the people you represent. Stop enriching yourselves and blaming others for your failures. The time to stand up and take responsibility is today. We will no longer be in operation to take care of the elite. I think it was a fine message for a country that has grown a nearly autonomous government that barely recognizes the public as a significant consideration beyond election day.
Yes, this is populism. Yup, he’s thumbing his nose at the moneyed and powered elite, yeah, he is talking to regular Americans. Half the country hates him, but the other half feels like they finally found somebody who can cut through the lies and excuses. And it is the working middle class pillar of American stability who are liking the Trump populism, the people referenced in the terms vox populi and hoi polloi. (An aside: at the conclusion of the speech, the cameras panned and stopped on Bill Clinton’s beaming face as he applauded. Take a look for yourself. He is by nature a populist and you can see that he loved the energy of Trump’s populist declarations, the kind he himself had been trying to make for Hillary to the derision of her campaign gurus.)
I like Trump’s foreign policy message as well. Who needs a war when you can have peace? But at the same time, anybody who isn’t properly defended even as it defends everybody else is an idiot. So we will review our foreign policy script, which is incredibly bad, and see what must go and what should stay, and where changes are needed. We will decide that today’s enemies can be tomorrow’s allies, and that those we raised to great heights through free trade can be tomorrow’s enemies. We need flexibility instead of treaty constraints. We need to think first of our security, not Europe’s. They became rich socialist states because we bankrolled them by providing for their defense. That has to stop.
It is so refreshing to me to have that rank pro-war stench gone. The proponents of war against Russia and a NATO on steroids are still there and agitating. But their power was badly wounded with the Warrior Queen’s defeat. Unless somebody attacks us, we ought to just mind our own business and work on prosperity and security at home. The only real war I see is against the terrorists and we should make whatever alliance necessary for the purpose of defeating them. Beyond that, what I think is that war makes the rich richer. Peace raises the rest of us.
Finally, I think that Barron Trump is a very handsome kid who is going to wow the girls in a few more years. He seemed an eager learner and I wish him and all his family well. They need our best wishes to counter all the bad juju coming out of the left.
God preserve our Republic and our President.
