Terrible Day for NeverTrump—Great Day for the Constitution

Reading Time: 4 minutes

One way to summarize Donald Trump’s first business day in office is to say he followed through on many, many campaign promises. Another way to look at it is that Trump slaughtered NeverTrump. Both explanations are accurate, but one is the cause, the other the effect.

First, you know I pay very little attention to Facebook. Too much craziness over there. But friends of mine do occasionally send me screen shots of things they find outrageous. So I know what a lot of NeverTrumpers were posting last year, even after the election. None of those NeverTrumpers expected Trump to do what he said he’d do.

Boy, does NeverTrump look like a bunch of fools today? By doint what he said he’d do, Trump drove the last nail in NeverTrump’s coffin.

[Read how Trump Meant It All]

Here’s a brief summary of what Donald Trump has done since November 8:

  • Saved or created 1.3 million American jobs
  • Appointed the most conservative, most qualified Cabinet in US history
  • Affirmed his commitment to drain the swamp and serve only the people of the United States
  • Bombed the hell out of ISIS on Day One
  • Placed a hiring freeze on the US government (except for military)
  • Ordered government agencies to resolve disputes with citizens in the best interest of the citizen*
  • Met with CIA rank-and-file, receiving numerous standing ovations
  • Signed Executive Order halting further implementations of Obamacare
  • Signed Executive Order banning use of US tax dollars for abortions overseas
  • Signed Executive Order pulling US out of TPP
  • Restored bust of Winston Churchill to Oval Office
  • Called Benjamin Netanyahu
  • Met with business executives, promising 75% cut in regulations, huge cuts in taxes, and warning that they will be severely punished for moving US jobs overseas
  • Met with union leaders, receiving long round of applause
  • Received accolades from Teamsters Union for pulling out of TPP
  • Reaffirmed his commitment to Scalia-like appointment to Supreme Court

That’s an amazing list of accomplishments that NeverTrumpers said would never happen. And in just one working day as President!

These actions are completely consistent with everything Trump said he’d do. And they’re completely consistent with his broad philosophy of government: the government is there to serve the people, not the other way around.

But I’ll go futher: Trump is already shaping up to be the ultimate movement-conservative president in US history. In other words, he’s running ahead of Reagan at this point.

NeverTrumpers ought to read Ken Masugi’s fantastic article on American Greatness. Masugi points out that Trump’s inaugural address was the strongest defense of the Constitution in more than a century:

In truth, no inaugural address has defended the Constitution so vigorously since Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural, because none so directly confronted the foundational threat to the Constitution in Franklin Roosevelt’s First Inaugural.

Because Masugi’s piece is so important, I’m going to include an extended quote for you. It’s very important. But I really want you to go read the whole piece.

Masugi argues that Trump’s speech surpassed Reagan’s when it comes to rolling back the intrusive power of government bureaucracy. Please read this carefully:

Since 1933, all presidents, Republican as well as Democrat, have accepted this willfulness, which destroys the rule of law and even the pretense of constitutional government. Only Ronald Reagan forthrightly resisted this temptation:

From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?

Thus, Reagan argued that ordinary Americans are heroes, who can live quite well without a bureaucracy over them. But President Reagan had insufficient powers, forcing him to compromise with a House of Representatives controlled by Democrats.

Yet President Trump never even mentioned the Constitution, his critics whine, so why accept a campaign rally speech on this solemn occasion as a defense of the Constitution?

The short answer is that since Reagan, 16 years of Democratic presidents plus 12 years of Bush Republican presidents have solidified the hold of the administrative state over America. This coup against republican government is the subject of Trump’s ire and the popular anger that propelled his unlikely election.

Look, I know how NeverTrumpers became misguided and mistrustful of Trump. I was, too, for a time in 2015. I wrote a book about it.

But it’s time for all people of the right to recognize the opportunity before us now. Donald Trump is the conservative savior we’ve been asking for. He’s the only one we’re going to get for many, many decades to come. If you don’t make the most of this golden, God-given opportunity, you will take it to your grave. And, if you take this to your grave, those of us who warned you to open your damn eyes will dance on it.


*In his Obamacare EO, Trump made history according to Judge Napolitano. Via Fox News:

Napolitano said that the order directs agencies to “dial back the severity of the enforcement and [not] to punish a person or a state for what you think is their non-compliance because it might not be non-compliance in a couple of months.”

Napolitano added that he’s never before seen a president say “you will exercise your judgment against the government and in favor of the individual. That is truly revolutionary and is exactly what [Trump] promised he would do.”

Sean Spicer and the White House Press Corp Proved Me 100% Right

Reading Time: 1

It’s great to be right.

Yesterday I told you that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer played the White House press corps by telling the truth. But the press corps and many Americans have a psychosis that literally replaces some words with other words. It’s not dyslexia. It’s far worse because it’s selective.

In this case, Spicer said “witness” but journalists everywhere repeated, “attend.” I wrote about it here.

Well, today, Spicer explained the situation to a psychotic journalist almost the same way I did. Listen closely to this exchange:

Note: Starts at 25:30 mark.

Any reasonable person now realizes that journalists are psychotic. Even though they wrote down that Spicer said “witness,” their minds operated as if he’d said, “attend.”

I am right.

How to Spot Journalism’s Psychosis

Reading Time: 3 minutes

When your brain automatically alters perceptions, there’s something wrong with you.

Reporters have this psychosis. Journalists. They have very bad ADHD it seems. They can’t pay attention. Like kids with ADHD. Chuck Todd and everybody at Business Insider should probably take Ritalin or something.

Reporters are also narcissists. No one goes into journalism unless they have a pathologically inflated ego. No one.

So I’m going to walk you through the proof, slowly, so even our narcissistic, hyperactive, attention-deficit-disordered journalists can understand that Sean Spicer played with them like a cat pawing a dying moth.

The press is making much ballyhoo over Sean Spicer’s first press statement Saturday. Even the crooked liars at PolitiFact have gotten into the fray. But the press and PolitiFact are “verifying” the facts of something Spicer didn’t say. In other words, because of their maniacal hatred of Donald Trump and his voters, the narcissists in the press are verifying a “fact” that doesn’t exist.

First, let’s look at what the press heard Spicer say, then we’ll see what Spicer actually said.

The idiots in the press heard Spicer say “This was the largest audience to ever to attend an inauguration — PERIOD.”

To refute what their brains invented, the press posted about 7 terabytes of photos comparing the Washington Mall on January 20, 2009, to the same Mall on January 20, 2017. In their self-deception, they say “Hah! Spicer’s WRONG!” Then they go off to congratulate themselves.

Had Spicer said what the press heard, the press would be right. But journalist’s brains don’t register what’s said, even when the journalists write the words themselves.

Here’s what Spicer actually said: “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — PERIOD.

Over 30 million people witnessed the inauguration of Donald J. Trump–the second-most in history.  But many millions more live streamed this inauguration, like me, meaning far more people watch Trump’s inauguration than any other past President. CNN.com registered 16 million live stream viewers alone. Here’s what Entertainment Weekly said:

And actually, Trump could have been seen by more viewers than either Obama or Reagan. Nielsen ratings do not account for online viewing, which has grown sharply in recent years and is far more commonplace than even four years ago. CNN.com, for example, clocked 16.9 million live streams, tying with its Election Day coverage for the site’s top event (live stream tallies are typically not apples-to-apples with Nielsen’s strict methodology of counting average viewers, but are still additive). Plus, portals like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter offered live streams as well.

What Spicer actually said was accurate. But accuracy was never important to a journalist.

Journalists’ brains don’t work right. They’re not right in the head, as Carl Childers might say. Even when they’re staring at Spicer’s actual words, their brains substitute “attended” for “witness.” And even when I point this out to them, they are psychologically incapable of processing the actual words. Even Chris Wallace’s brain said “attend” while his eyes were reading “witness.” That’s how powerful this journalistic psychosis is. Here’s what Wallace read today on Fox News Sunday (transcript):

And then through Spicer he [Trump] said that this was the biggest audience ever to *attend* an inauguration. That’s also not true.

See how pervasive this psychosis is? Chris Wallace’s eyes saw the word “witness,” but his mind read “attend.” The two words don’t even look like each other. Dyslexia can’t account for such a word scramble. Only psychosis explains it. Only psychosis.

In the meantime, the hags who marched on Washington yesterday got kicked below the fold because the moronic press obsessed over a word substitution in their disordered brains.

Sad!
