Trump’s nastiness
is making him look weak

Original Article

Donald Trump wants people to think he’s a winner. So why does he act like a loser? Winners convey a sense of effortless superiority. They don’t have to work at it. You just know they’re above it all. If someone tries to criticize them, it’s beneath their dignity to worry about it. It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. The Brits are good at that, Boris Johnson especially. We still don’t know how things will turn out there, but I expect his aplomb will carry him through. “There are no disasters,” he once joked. “Only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”

"We weren’t always like this." No, we were losers. If the dems weren't allowed to lie and carry out criminal activity without cost and if the media wasn't the propaganda wing of the dem party, maybe we could have rational and respectful discussions about policy. Instead, the dems and media have set the playing field as it is and Trump is playing by their rules and beating them at every turn. To win under the current set of rules requires some punch back when attacked. Here's an example. In the coverage of a hurricane that leveled the Bahamas, the media decided, as it continually decides, to take a poke at Trump, over a comment he made about Alabama. The comment is proving, as usual, to be correct but WHY was it so important to the media in the midst of the very real tragedy? It was trivia at best but the media tried to make it into an "issue" to get Trump. Trump doesn't let such things pass because he has learned that when you let such issues pile up without contesting them, eventually, the opponents of today will roll out a laundry list of your failures to beat you over the head with. They will all be lies but, being uncontested at the time, no one will know that. As it is, some still whine that he said "wiretapping" incorrectly even though it has become clear that a high tech "wiretapping" WAS used illegally. When you have a media and the party it supports providing a near constant negative drumbeat, you have to set the record straight. Without Trump's pushback people would think the 92% negative coverage was justified. Now the voters know it is not and the media and dems are not trusted ... because they don't deserve to be.

Well Mr Buckley, after you become a billionaire (with a b) and then become President, and then endure 3 years of non-governing because the media and Swamp are circling like ancient, prehistoric belly crawlers, THEN you can talk about nasty. Until then . . .

Keep going Mr. President! You are on the right track! Critics have been trying to silence President Trump since before he won office. Why? So their criticism would be left unchecked, and more people would believe the critics. President Trump is entitled to defend himself. It does not make him mean. If the President did not defend himself, it would make him weak, and he would lose support. The President is doing the right thing by responding to his critics. Most of the criticism of the President is lies and triviality. Very little is genuine.

It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. Yeah, that's been the winning strategy of Republicans, especially RINO's since 1995 and it has worked so very well. In fact, there is a political name for what the Republicans do. It's called "Fall Down, Roll Over, and Poop Self" whenever ANY kind of challenge comes their way. And, with a case of Depends to keep them looking so very brave, "they don't have to work at it."

PDT probably only responds to 30-40% of the criticism that he gets from people like the author and other leftists. He just picks the right ones to respond to, and it works every time. Admit it, Buckley, he's good at it, and you're jealous. Now, go someplace and hide before a leftist criticizes you. Boo!

Where's the author's criticism about the super-nasty dems? They are the one's who call him every name in the book, plus a few not there. He is not George Bush, who just took it and appeared weak. Trump is anything but weak! Democrats want him to be like the little kid that gets bullied. This kid punches back, and twice as hard.

Does anyone remember when a shoe was thrown at George W. Bush and he ducked away from it and smiled? You throw a shoe at President Trump and you'll promptly get two or three thrown back at you and not with a smile on his face. George Bush never pushed back and what did that get him with the nasty people on the left?

I read F.H. Buckley's Wikipedia page to check his lineage (no relation) and found out he's a conservative from Saskatoon. I thought there was only one. I was also pleased to see that he has both supported Trump in the past and written speeches for him. So, this isn't an attack editorial; it's friendly advice. Which brings us to the question, is it good advice? Buckley quotes Saint Paul of Tarsus: "If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink. For in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.” Robert A. Heinlein was even more pithy: "When the fox gnaws--smile!" There is wisdom in both, but I fear Buckley is missing some of that wisdom. You don't treat your enemies with kindness because it's good for you; you do it because it's bad for them. You rise above them by showing them that their attacks are beneath you. You shame them by refusing to respond in kind. However, that only works if your enemies are capable of shame, and that is not how the political world works now. President Trump's enemies are shameless. Their false accusations, if left unchallenged, are assumed to be true and real political damage is done. Trump's enemies don't care what's true, and they certainly aren't worried about what's right. They just want to destroy our President. And when someone sets out to destroy you, you need to destroy them back. President Trump is the only American in public life today who has never been forced to issue a humiliating and pointless apology to the uncaring and hypocritical mob that is ruining this country. That fact alone makes me want to support him. Which brings me in closing to the wisdom of Saint John of Wayne: "Never apologize and never explain--it's a sign of weakness." - John Wayne in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949)

Trump has to defend himself by any means necessary, to coin a phrase, because his own Republican party does not ever defend him or their own party. Talk about staying mute and showing strength, Republicans did that for decades and because of it, the Republican brand has been shredded. If staying "silent and strong" was the way, Republicans would be kicking butt. But no. Instead, they are feckless, weak and cowardly, cowering under their beds, as Trump defends himself and tries to drag the Republican party along with him. FW Buckley, you are so wrong. Stand in president DJ Trump's shoes for five minutes and let's see what you have to say then.

Give us a break, President Trump has essentially been defending himself and America against the nasty Democrat socialists. That’s completely the opposite of what G.W. Bush did as the Democrat socialists kicked him, and his personal, and professional reputations and policies into the gutter for years, with no response from him, that helped in part to beget Barack Obama.

I dare say that if anybody has endured 3 years of unending malicious and slanderous attacks, that person has a right to be offended. If it had been just a little speck, I am sure President Trump would have brushed it off his shoulder. Instead, he has had a huge hot steaming mess dumped on him on a daily basis.

Who cares what a Canadian thinks? Bush I and II tried his advice, it destroyed 41 and crippled 43 by the time he left office. And McCain? He carried the Democrat water for years and his reward was to be flat out accused of wanting to repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and making black people slaves again. I remember Gore saying it on the podium at the DNC in '08, and when McCain went on the View during the campaign Whoopie Goldberg accused him of it to his face.When he stood there mutely and let the Democrat Party and it's allies in the MSM/DNC complex pour bucket after bucket of filth over his head, that was the last straw for me. Romney tried the same thing and they destroyed him too. Whatever his flaws may be, The Donald™ understands, from years in close proximity to them, that Democrats have no honor, no integrity, and no shame and acts accordingly. We've learned that if you refuse to defend yourselves from thier lies, they will define you and you will be done. Personally, when it comes to the Democrat Party the policy should be "escalate to De-escalate". Only when we inflict enough metaphorical pain on them will they start showing some manners.

It is a wonder that our enemies still initiate attacks on President Trump. The Great Communicator only counterpunches and the Marxists keep coming for more. Trump has to defend himself because the Republicans will not stand for truth and the American way. I will vote for Trump 2020 even if I have to crawl over red-hot coals.

The media pounded W. He was smart enough to know that, if he answered back, they would just pound harder, so he ignored it. I don’t call that a weakness because it’s harder to ignore things sometimes. Trump fights back even harder, and the media pounds back harder. He could stop answering every petty thing that comes his way, but seems to enjoy the back and forth, so he can do as he pleases. If we haven’t learned one thing, we’re not paying attention. That one thing is Republicans will always be the “bad” guys in the eyes of the media. And that is why I watch and listen to the noise less and less. It makes my life more pleasant.

Even I--a strong DJT supporter --went a teensy bit wobbly with the Sharpie edit. I thought he should have left it with the NOAA map pointed toward Alabama and drop it. But time, and time, and time again The Donald proves to be correct. On the other hand, that which does not kill you, makes you stronger and that's what I feel is happening. Media is getting killed, such that any criticisms are automatically thought to be baseless by more and more. And it's doubly delicious that it was video on Don Lemon's CNN show that provided the kill shot.

Since I swore off watching TV news in 2000, what I know about the Dorian hurricane path prediction controversy, I've gleaned from reading the articles and the following the comments posted to this site. So the president rapidly responds to and wins the 'where the weather media once guessed the hurricane might go' argument and receives unanimous praise from his base for doing so. but has not acted with such dispatch and fortitude in bringing actual presidential coup plotters, many of whom are still working within his administration, to any form of justice. I want the president to be a wickedly shrewd and tenacious fighter, especially on matters that threaten our republic.

First of all, Kudos To Reply Number 19! Now then, our President is not a politician who'll say or do anything just to grab a vote. Donald Trump is a businessman, a successful one. He's been a businessman most of his life. He wings it. He takes advantage of favorable opportunities if and when they show up. He doesn't require a scheduled, formal, pre-announced press/news conference. He makes news, even accompanied by the sound in the background of his air transportation warming up in his backyard. Envy, thy name is Democrats!

I hate science, evidently, because I’m woke to the manifest truth about what the leftist elite currently calls “climate change."

"This is beyond just a fiscal problem,” Jeb Hensarling said in 2017. “This is a moral problem." The former Texas congressman and Financial Services chairman was specifically addressing the federal National Flood Insurance Program. At the time, the program was about to be tapped to pay claims by residents along the Texas Gulf Coast after Hurricane Harvey. It was already $25 billion in debt. Today, with new claims on the way, it is only $21 billion in the red, but that’s only because Congress forgave an additional $16 billion that the program owed the U.S. Treasury — owed, that is, to taxpayers. But money is not and never has been the real issue.

For the first time in the US Army's 244 year history, two sisters have attained the rank of general. Maj. Gen. Maria Barrett and her younger sister, Brig. Gen. Paula Lodi, grew up in a military family. Their father, Ruston Lodi, served in World War II and received the Silver Star. Both have impressive resumes: Maj. Gen. Barrett is the Commanding General of NETCOM, while Brig. Gen. Lodi is the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations at the Office of the Surgeon General, USA Today reports. But while fathers and sons have risen to general in the past, the Army believes this pair are the first sisters with the distinction.

Liar or idiot. It is hard to tell which of these best describes former Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, I really don’t understand how he can even be a contender considering his past. During the summer of my freshman year in college, then-U.S. Sen. Biden plagiarized the words of the leader of the British Labor Party, Neil Kinnock.

CNN is a mid-tier cable news network that provides non-stop breaking news to bored airport travelers and internet journalists. The network has breathlessly covered President Donald Trump's every fart and utterance since 2015 and has contributed to the "national dialogue" through countless interviews with serious public intellectuals. Michael Avenatti, for example. One of CNN's most recent hires, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, was found to have lied to federal investigators under oath prior to his firing in March 2018. In addition to his role as CNN contributor, McCabe has a new side hustle: Keynote speaker at Democratic Party fundraisers. And speaking of the network's keen eye for talent, CNN invited celebrity

A gain for Elizabeth Warren and a slip in support for Kamala Harris place Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Warren atop the field in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, days in advance of the Sept. 12 Democratic debate in Houston, sponsored by ABC and Univision. The poll finds Biden, this summer’s front-runner, far better rated for electability than for being “the best president for the country.” Still, his supporters are more committed than those of other candidates, and electability has advanced as a priority, helping him hold his ground -- albeit not advance.

The M.I.T.

Dozens of pages of e-mails and other documents obtained by The New Yorker reveal that, although Epstein was listed as “disqualified” in M.I.T.’s official donor database, the Media Lab continued to accept gifts from him, consulted him about the use of the funds, and, by marking his contributions as anonymous, avoided disclosing their full extent, both publicly and within the university.

The comedian said shaming and judging are necessary and the first step in reform. "I know this is a controversial thing to say now in today's America but being fat is a bad thing," Maher said.

That’s what being on a war footing meant. The state became all powerful. In order to survive, we were told, individual choice was a luxury Britain could no longer afford.
