Why I Have Given Up on Trumpism
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/14/2017 6:30:28 AM

I have given up on Trumpism. I realize this declaration will come as a surprise to some readers. I should mention, therefore, that it is a decision to which I came only after considerable reflection. It was not easy. I have plenty of friends who endorse Trumpism. I acknowledge that I did as well. I labored assiduously in those vineyards. But I have changed my mind. Why? A decent respect for the opinions of mankind requires that I should declare the reasons that impelled me to this separation. One factor was the increasingly surreal commentary that surrounds the whole enterprise of Trumpism. I

Comments:
Kimball is a fan of President Trump. He has come to discover that what the #NeverTrumpers who have never accepted President Trump’s presidency call “Trumpism” is their own concoction and far removed from the reality of what is happening. But they - the Kristols, the Boots - are still smarting that he could have been elected without their permission. A good read.

Love the comment that Trumpism, like the unicorn, has a "notional existence." Clever, but he finally gets down to the business of praising the acts of the President.

Kimball is one or ours and those who are interested in his CV will find a brief bio at the end of the article.

If readers read only the headline and the intro it will be easy for them to fall into the trap of believing this is a hit piece. It is, but not on President Trump.

Not for drivebys.

Kimball reveals the irrationality of the establishment types, who never got over Trump´s election and are too warped by their own egos and hide-bound prejudices to accept him as POTUS. They cannot, in their minds, unstick all the pejorative labels they slapped on him.

Who is the lesser of the two evils? It is Trump. Max seems to be brainwashed. Max will be going down the RED brick road of progressivism, with Bill Kristol, if we lose the mid-terms. Good luck with that. Trump is the best choice when you put him up against ANY Democrat. Hang in there Trump will suffice.

I am completely in agreement with Roger. Trumpism is a mantra coming from the Left aimed primarily at establishing a public definition of President Trump. It tries to paint PDT as a creature of their own design, which of course, has nothing what-so-ever to do with what President Trump really is all about. I have my own image of what the President represents, and, you may be surprised to learn, it has very little to do with the ideology and function of the man Donald Trump. It has everything to do with the function and role of the Presidency, though. If that sounds confusing, I am sorry. But, it is as clear as ice water to me. It merely defines Trump more by what he is not than what he is. Thus every time I hear of some wag, like McConnell or McCain bad mouthing or impeding the President, I know my definition is accurate. And, let us face facts- they despise him for the very reasons I like him. Win-win!

MAGA!

We owe President Trump a debt of Gratitude for exposing a government of liers and thieves who can not make it in the real world!
Regular Order as Speaker Ryan said is this, travel, spend, raise money and pretend! Think of the active work hours of President Trump. Up at dawn and never to sleep, wheels turn with one great goal bring America to the front of the class again! Now contrast that to republican and Democrat leadership and rank and file! They are milk toast!
All these little boys and girls dressed up like adults playing in the corner! Trump is a giant who has shined a bright light on a privileged class of legislators and beaucrats who can not even find the right restroom!
Go Trump

Thanks to OP for posting. This is a good one.

Recently Tucker Carlson had Max Boot on his show, and Boot appeared to be suffering from both dyspepsia and constipation, similar to Dan Aykroyd on Weekend Update with Jane "you ignorant slut" Curtain, albeit without the humor. I found myself talking to the television screen: "C´mon, Max. You´re going to pull a hernia just before you spontaneously combust."

Same as most #NeverTrumpers, I made no secret that I supported Ted Cruz in the primaries last year. However, shortly after the Convention and after some calm thought, I came out as a fervent Trump supporter--I still am his supporter--understanding as all rational conservatives should that a PIAPS presidency would lock into place all of Obama´s deliberate anti-American policies, and that America was in real danger of descending into Europe´s social democratic maelstrom that ultimately dooms Europeans to, at best, economic stagnation and domestic unease, vulnerable to every ill wind wafting from humanity´s backwaters.

Kimball´s list of President Trump´s positive accomplishments already--after only ten months--should be committed to memory by those who stand up for PDT in public (as most of us here do). He has done almost everything humanly possible so far to improve the lot of Americans. If the establishment GOP refuse to move on repealing Obamacare and simplifying the tax code and reducing taxes, the blame should properly rest with them. At primary time, these principle free pols should be retired by voters.

The NeverTrumpers are proving to be actually deranged, unable to function, unable to get past it like a normal person. Regardless of the good things that Trump accomplishes, things that had they been accomplished by any other person would have gotten glowing accolades from these people, they are relentlessly opposed. Because Trump did it. I never bothered with psychology, still think it is at best a dash of science flavoring a giant morass of voodoo, but there might be some particular psychological name for this extreme aversion to one person for no knowable reason.

In any case, if Trump´s entire first term were nothing but the demolition phase of the Great American Remodeling Project, that would still be a huge plus. The reality is far better. While there is a good amount of demolition, especially to recent leftist regulations - which Congress has permanently blocked from reregulation, and there is also some significant chance of a major tax reduction. This will truly Make America Great Again - which is why NeverTurmp fools like McHate, Flake and Corker may well "cut off their nose to spite their face" as my mother used to say.

Go Trump. Max Boot, Bill Kristol, George Will, David French and more are circling the drain, screaming impotently at the sky like the deranged fools that they are.

Good article.

The methods of the Left, and the establishment, are to pin a label on something and then demonize it. The best labels are the ones that already carry a negative connotation, like "racist". The Left has found you don´t need to establish an actual connection, just throw the mud and rant about how dirty the person is.

Trump is defying all their labels and it is driving them insane. The American People decided that Trump wanted good things for America in the face of the Left and the establishment that have done little to really help the people in decades.

What else is required?

Sure Trump has his rough edges. Those are the ones he jabs into the media and dems while we applaud his refusal to roll over for them. He knows their games and beats them almost every time.

I don´t need a president to follow. I need a president to lead and do good for the Country.

Trump is delivering.

As he prepares to bring the first tax code re-write since 1986 to the Senate floor, Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah is saying his Senate service might not be nearing its end. In a report published Tuesday, Hatch told the Wall Street Journal he does intend to seek another term. “I’m planning on running again because I still have the chairmanship of the Finance Committee and they’ll never be another Utahn that’s chairman of the committee, at least not for 40 or 50 years,” Hatch said.

Court documents involving Leigh Corfman, who says that Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore tried to engage in a sexual encounter with her when she was 14, raise questions about the timeline and narrative of Corfman’s accusations against the politician. Those accusations were first publicly disclosed in a Washington Post story citing Corfman and her mother, Nancy Wells, as saying that in early 1979, Roy Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, allegedly asked Wells to watch her fourteen-year-old daughter while Wells went into a courtroom for a custody hearing.(Snip)A thorough search of court documents finds one court case in February 1979—a

FAIRBANKS —I have always supported the freedom to choose. I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy in order to avoid being taxed.

And that is why I support the repeal of that tax today. Over the course of this year, the Senate has considered bills that would have repealed Medicaid expansion, completely transformed the

To ask the question why liberals have been such hypocrites about their treatment of women and about women´s rights is not to say that conservatives haven´t been. They have. And some of their actions have been pretty bad. But by comparison, GOP hypocrisy in this area has been quite literally dwarfed by the Democrats. Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton are the most recent spiritual fathers of this atrocious behavior. Both extreme sexual predators -- Teddy to the extent of walking away from the corpse of Mary Jo Kopechne and other improprieties, Bill for, well, practically everything from rape to cigars --

Republican Roy Moore is increasingly running against the GOP establishment in Washington after top elected officials called for him to exit the race amid allegations of sexual assault and improper relationships with teenagers decades ago. Moore’s struggles and the shock of the allegations against him have tilted the race significantly, providing an opening for Democrat Doug Jones to compete in ruby red Alabama, which supported President Trump by nearly 30 points over Hillary Clinton last November.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

The American political community has not taken adequate notice of Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened (the title is not posed as a question). It was generally panned when it came out a couple of months ago for blaming everyone but herself for her defeat. I have never been a Clinton-basher, and I was astonished by the venom, untruthfulness, and zealotry of her account. Mrs. Clinton writes persuasively of seeking “grace” after her defeat, and concluded most of her speeches throughout the 2016 campaign calling for “love and kindness,” yet she is unrelievedly ungracious. She describes her opponent as a clear
