Greatest 4th of July! WrestlemaniaCNNTakeDown! (Video)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

President Trump makes everything better. Everything. And this video, which he just tweeted, made this 4th of the July the best since 1776. (Click twice to get play this video)

The left and CNN will, of course, be outraged. They don’t have a sense of humor.

President Trump has a fine sense of humor. I can see the grin on his face as he tapped out “#FraudNewsCNN” and hit the send button.

I know this is very un-Christian of me, but I have to admit something. It makes me happy to know that Trump’s wrestling video will ruin the holiday for hundreds of reporters, editors, producers, Hollywood outrage pornographers, and Never Trumpers. Ruin their holiday. I can see Jim Acosta screaming at his wife across the kitchen table now. “Why no corn-on-the-cob? Why no corn-on-the-cob? Why no corn-on-the-cob?” He might even get a drink thrown in his face.

Some will say that a video like this one is beneath the president. Sanctimonious puffery. Bill Clinton sort of blew those standards of decorum.

Besides, everybody who ever said they wanted new blood and fresh faces in politics? This is what non-political outsiders look like. They don’t play by your old rules because those rules were meant to preserve the elites. The rules of decorum you worry about were designed to keep Tea Partiers barefoot and parading, not winning elections. Those old rules from the 19th century were written to keep the common rabble (rabble like you, me, and Trump) away from politics.

When we stormed the steps of the Arch in 2009, we became the battering ram striking the first blow into the gates of the palace. When Donald J. Trump took the oath of office in January 2017, those palace gates swung open. Just as the American army of rabble and peasants humiliated the great British Empire at Yorktown 236 years ago.

Cornwallis’s words in The Patriot are Jeff Zucker’s words today. (Click anywhere on the video to play)

Everything has changed. Everything except the elite’s contempt for the people who make America great.

Keep tweeting, Mr. President. Your enemies deserve it.

UPDATE:

  1. The Gateway Pundit reacts.
  2. CNN reacts like Cornwallis
  3. Scott Adams perfectly explains the entire matter in few words:

 

I disavow every Republican who disavowed Trump’s tweets

When Reagan was president, we wanted him to hit back harder on the press. We wanted him to put Sam Donaldson in his place. We wanted him to call out the fake news.

But Reagan didn’t.

Reagan was a gentleman.

We respected that.

But we wanted him to break form and hit those bastards hard. With his brilliant wit.

When Trump punched Mika and Joe in their surgically-lifted faces this morning, I laughed. I cheered.

They had it coming. They EARNED a presidential takedown. They earned it. They got it.

When Nancy Pelosi, former lube rack swimsuit model, took to the podium to call Trump sexist, I laughed. What a stupid hypocrite Pelosi.

Nancy Pelosi: Lube Rack Model

When I heard Republicans disavowing Trump’s tweets, I yelled. Almost cried like Chuck Schumer.

Republicans are so weak. Weak Republicans. Man up.

The press deserves every ounce of scorn, ridicule, and condemnation it gets. There’s no life form lower than a lefty journalist. When low-IQ idiots like Mika Brzezinski get called out by a president, they have it coming. It’s just. It’s deserved.

I am damn proud that my president remains true to his rallying, street-fighter campaign. I’m proud that Trump verbally punches stupidity in its plastic-surgery-lifted face (as Michelle Moore might say).

I hope Trump’s tweets hurt their feelings. Screw their feeling.

Trump isn’t Reagan. Trump is the Wolf. Trump gets the job done. He’s filling the gaps Reagan left open. He’s punching stupidity in the mouth. And you love it.

Keep winning, Donald. We love you.

When the Russian Narrative Broke

Reading Time: 2 minutes

When did the narrative break?

Was it the assassination attempt on GOP Congressmen?

Was it Comey’s admission that Trump was never under investigation?

Was it Kathy Griffin’s grim ISIS imitation?

Was it Trump’s 5-0 winning streak in special elections?

Like the ageless question of how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie-Roll center of a Tootsie-Pop, the world may never know. Never know just when the Russian narrative broke.

But the narrative broke. Bigly.

Just a few, short months ago, celebrities and journalists could incite violence against Trump and his supporters with impunity. Now, teachers and journalists are getting fired. Celebrities are losing gigs for going over the top.

Yesterday, three fake news journalists were forced to resign from very fake news CNN. They published a false Russian story. CNN had to post a shameful, humiliating retraction. Today, a CNN producer was caught in a Project Veritas sting admitting the Russian story was fake news from day one.

And CNN’s Jim Acosta has become so unhinged his friends are asking him to take a leave of absence and get some help.

The anti-Trump forces put all their eggs in the Russian basket. But the basket broke. The narrative broke. And those anti-Trumps have nothing to turn to. They have no repertoire of tactics. Only one: Russia, Russia, Russia.

And the Russian narrative broke. Like Humpty Dumpty, all the Deep State’s horses and all the Deep State’s men can’t put the Russian narrative together again.

With their only narrative out of the way, with a huge win in the Supreme Court, expect Trump to run up the score for the rest of the summer. Happy days are here again.

By October, we’ll be talking about which loser the Democrats might offer up as cannon fodder in 2020.

 

Ted Cruz: Mensch!

Reading Time: 1

If you read my blog, you know I’ve had differences with Senator Ted Cruz. But the Senator has stepped up. Bigly! Only a gentleman would do what Cruz just did with his El Chapo bill.

Remember the GOP race? Cruz and Trump went at each other like nobody’s business. Wives and all. While Cruz couldn’t bring himself to endorse Trump at the convention, Ted has stepped up a lot since the election.

The biggest step-up to date: this El Chapo bill. Via Breitbart News:

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Trump’s most prominent issue in the campaign starting June 2015 was the Wall. You remember the rallies, don’t you? “And who’s going to pay for that big, beautiful wall?”

M E X I C O!!!!

Senator Cruz has no reason to help Trump solve his number one issue. None. No one would think less of Ted Cruz if he continued to pursue his personal goals, paying no attention to President Trump’s agenda.

But Senator Cruz has gone total mensch. He’s taken it upon himself to find a way for Mexico to pay for the Wall. A solution NO ONE can possibly object to. Making a Mexican drug lord pay for it.

Brilliant!

My hat is off to Senator Cruz. Now, if we can get some Missouri NeverTrump Republicans to step up and put America before their own egos.

Trump Launched 59 Cruise Missiles at Leftist Narratives

Reading Time: 2 minutes

No child of God should ever suffer such horror.

—President Donald J. Trump

The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative.

The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative.

That’s another way of saying the pen is mightier than the sword.

The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative.

Tonight, President Trump blew up four narratives of the left. And he made America great again in the world.

First, the Hitler narrative is dead as a doornail. A few people really believed Trump was the reincarnation of Hitler. By launching a Navy cruise missile strike on Syria, Trump used US weapons to protect and defend and avenge Muslim babies. Hitler didn’t do that. Humanitarians do what Trump did. Humanitarians. Trump just moved from Hitler to Mother Teresa. Narrative destroyed.

Second, the Russia narrative is dead as a doornail. Dead. Over. You will never hear about Russian complicity again. Trump attacked a Russian ally in living color. He punched Putin in the nose. The Russian narrative is done. Forever.

Third, the incompetent narrative is dead as a doornail. Incompetent people telegraph their moves. Trump shocked the entire world by bombing the hell out of a Syrian air base seemingly without warning. He knows what he’s doing, and that “incompetent” narrative is now dead.

Fourth, the “Trump is a lightweight” narrative is dead as a doornail. Don’t forget that commie Chinese dictator Xi is in Mar-a-Lago. Today, Xi was the senior statesman. Tomorrow, Trump will be the big bull in the room. Xi knows it. Trump just took the lead on the world’s stage.

I’m not going to debate the details of Trump’s action. Because details don’t matter. Ever. Narratives matter, because narratives are the most powerful weapons in the world.

Trump just made America great again. He made us the big kids on the block, where the block is the world.

Geopolitics is back. Realpolitik is in. America is in charge. And 18 months of leftist, anti-Trump narrative is dead as a doornail. Dead as doornail.

What is North Korea thinking now? What is Iran thinking now?

Tired of winning yet?

P.S. Two of my children are in harm’s way in the US Navy. My thanks to them for their dedication and professionalism.

UPDATE: This image and message will sink deeply into the American psyche>

New York Times emphasizes the same Trump pull quote as I did:

Neediness

Reading Time: 2 minutes

President Trump is teaching the world a huge lesson. That valuable lesson goes something like this:

Don’t be needy.

Jim Camp is a world-famous negotiation coach. Jim has led some enormous negotiations: labor disputes, huge multi-national buys, and mergers. This is is what Jim says about neediness in his book Start With No:

It is absolutely imperative that you as a negotiator understand the importance of this point. You do NOT need this deal, because to be needy is to lose control and make bad decisions.

Yesterday, I pointed out that most politicians, especially Republican politicians, need every deal. And they use time to get “some deal done.” They delay. They move deadlines (which were never really deadlines.) They change positions.

To politicians,  any deal is better than no deal. 

Republicans need to get any deal done leads to disasters. Big-league negotiators know this.

I’ve written many times about Chris Voss. Chris was the FBI’s lead hostage negotiator for years. Chris is also a big fan of Jim Camp’s methods. Here’s what Chris says about neediness in his great book Never Split the Difference:

NO NEEDINESS: HAVING THE READY-TO-WALK MINDSET

We’ve said previously that no deal is better than a bad deal. If you feel you can’t say “No” then you’ve taken yourself hostage. Once you’re clear on what your bottom line is, you have to be willing to walk away. Never be needy for a deal.

To Donald Trump, no deal beats a bad deal. 

Trump told Congress to vote on Friday. Pass or fail, he’s moving on.

That is leadership. And it teaches a lesson. It teaches people that the days of American neediness are over. Like when Ronald Reagan fired the PATCO workers.

If the bill passes, we have something to celebrate. Celebrate the fact that our President isn’t needy. Because the world now knows that Trump will walk away from a bad deal.

That’s an achievement worth celebrating.
