Trump’s Only Real Weakness
Is His Style

This is the time for President Trump to deprive his enemies of the last weapon that could be employed against him that could cause him any harm: the largely false, but still troublesome, issue of his personality and routine behavior. Other lines of attack have come to naught: Collusion with Russia, accusations of racism provoking outbursts of mass murder (by uttering “racially charged statements,” in the inadvertently Orwellian words of CNN’s most witless talking head, Don Lemon), the verbal recession confected by the world-renowned economists of CNN and MSNBC, all of it has collapsed. Illegal border crossings are in sharp decline as the wall is steadily extended,

Trump is Trump. He will neither change nor moderate. We elected Trump, we got Trump. He only attacks when being attacked. He must have been sick during the Sunday school lesson to turn the other cheek. However, Bushie did this, and the media destroyed his administration in the second term. Bushie was "above it all" but this did not prevent the media from hanging his administration, and ushering in Madame Pelosi as speaker. Everything went south after the 2006 election.

Conrad, an undoubtedly classy kind of guy, generally likes President Trump but can't quite understand or tolerate his bombastic personality. He's not alone. However, there are millions of us average American people out in the boonies who accept our President's foibles and enjoy his free spirit of expression.

My brother doesn't like PDJT personally, so I tell him to imagine the Prez as a Black Box from which comes judicial appointments, tax cuts, foreign policy wins, deregulation, and other things dear to conservatives. Ignore the human baggage, I say. But I personally admire PDJT. I can't imagine anyone else with the strength and courage to fight against the relentless attacks, the smear campaigns, the betrayals, etc.

Dear Conrad, And all this time I thought you were a really smart guy. Now you would have us believe that our President should change his “personality and routine behavior”. Are you about to change yours? Could you? He’s doing just fine. Leave him alone.

Turn the other cheek? I see nothing wrong with defending my character or credibility. And the smearing of his character and credibility has been relentless.

If this had been the first Conrad Black piece I ever read, I never would have read another. His hoity-toityness is offputting. Pretentious, supercilious, and effectively setting himself up as an arbiter of correct behavior for presidents. “Being presidential.” Conrad just went down a few notches. Just another jealous Canadian...

President Trump's style does seem to distract his detractors while he quietly advances his agenda, unnoticed until it's too late. People who can't logically or intelligently argue against policies also seem to gravitate to the style criticism, which is nothing more than OPINION.

For a smart man Conrad Black is sure is dumb. I usually enjoy Black's articles, but I won't open this one - even for the $3 words. His total premise is wrong. It is precisely Trump's "style" that has enabled the long list of accomplishments that Black admires. Garden Party sensibilities do not clean up street gangs, and the Left is the political equivalent of the Crips and Bloods. President Trump is truly a president for the people and for the Constitution. He is all that stands between us and disaster. I'll not question any device of his. MAGA - Whether they like it or not.

I agree with Conrad Black. President Trump’s personal attracts are cringe worthy and do not attract new supporters. He must pull out all the stops to win re-election. Is it really too much to ask him to tone it back when so much is at stake? I know he is capable of behaving in a more gracious manner. We see his easy charm when he welcomes people to the Whitehouse.

Sit silent like George Bush did and let enemies take you down like Trump bashers try to do. That really worked out well for Bush. When I get really excited is when President Trump and First Lady are on the world stage to watch in awe how polite and glassy they both are unlike the clutcy stupid Obamas . Leaders of other nations gravitate to them some are jealous but supporters, the real Americans, are proud. Conrad Bleeck is stupid and doesn't know a thing about 'the man' Donald J.

In a lot of ways, I think his style is one of his strengths. He takes no BS from anyone. Look how far Dubya's above-it-all mind-set got him when he was being maliciously trashed. I use the word maliciously intentionally, since "absence of malice" applies to slander / libel. I'd far rather a president to stands up to bullies, domestic and abroad, and takes no guff. People are always saying, "I wish he'd stop tweeting," as if that would make the haters back off, but it wouldn't, and the low-info voter wouldn't even know he had stopped.

One more comment that I forgot to mention previously. Donald Trump is resolute in defending his character and credibility. He does not use vulgar language but he is swift and matter-of-fact in his delivery. Some may find this to be uncomfortable but George Bush's silence was very confusing to his supporters. I used to admire him but the way he has handled situations recently about Donald Trump, I find it to be double-speak confusion.

I want President Trump to be re-elected, which is not a sure thing for 2020, despite the optimism from the A-men corner, that didn't foresee losing the House to increasingly open communist wannabes in 2018. Over the course of life, career-wise or personal, most adults willingly modify their behavior in order to achieve a higher-level purpose. Would not a 30-year Navy Chief Bosun Mate who retires to become an ordained minister be expected to make a few modest "adjustments" in speech patterns? Aren't the truly accomplished warriors in history who display a touch of humility and grace celebrated in Western Culture? I'm thinking of Lincoln and the words of a Johnny Horton song come to mind ":..but he asked the band to play the song, 'Dixie,' for you Johnny Reb and all that you believe." I believe that if President Trump knew that the stakes of him losing to any of the democrats increases the probability of America going down the tubes, that he'd not kill a friendly messenger trying to help his reelection odds and he'd embrace few adjustments not in conflict with his core beliefs.

Just another attempt to convince everyone that Trump should be quiet. It won't work. Trump's style is one of his strengths, and he knows it. Surprising this came from Conrad Black. Have a hard time this is about style, so what is really bothering Conrad Black? Have to admit if I worked for Trump, I would presume it would be a temporary job. :-)

His daughter Ivanka said “He is blunt”… That pretty well covers it. Some don’t do blunt. Direct. Straightforward. They will use the knife in a velvet sheath? Or maybe they will just dance around tough issues and hope they go away. I have seen absolutely nothing about President Trump that I would call “cringeworthy” (is that even a word?). Those who cringe are too often snowflakes… or trying to be the manners versions of social justice warriors. Manners warriors? Manners nannies? Interesting: To cringe is to bend one’s head in fear or in a servile manner.

Maybe it’s just me but I am sick and tired of famous people from other countries jumping in the fray of American politics and sounding off. It’s just rude. I’m referring to people like Conrad Black, Jim Carrey, Eric McCormack, Seth Rogen, Mick Jagger, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, etc. I lived in Canada for many years but stayed away from commenting on their politics and leaders. I lived in Germany, too, but bit my lip about their politics when they sounded off on ours. Conrad Black may believe Trump isn’t polite enough but Black was born and raised in another country and his native country right now has perhaps the most ridiculous leader of any civilized nation I know of.

All Darrin Kelly wanted for the energy workers in Western Pennsylvania was that the Democratic presidential hopefuls would talk to them before going to war against shale. That opportunity slipped away last Friday when Elizabeth Warren joined Bernie Sanders in calling for a total fracking ban. “On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil-fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands.

I’ve gotten out of the prediction business when it comes to American politics. Primarily because I no longer trust the information on which I used to rely to make predictions. Mainstream American news media continues their Wile E. Coyote routine with President Trump. And just like the cartoon, you quickly figure out after a couple of episodes they’re never going to catch Trump’s roadrunner. This week’s episode featured Media Coyote telling us President Roadrunner has lost his magic in North Carolina and in no way would Dan Bishop be able to pull off a victory in the state’s 9th Congressional District because of the roadrunner’s unpopularity.

The Green New Deal betrayed the climate crusade’s outlandish demands in its starkest, darkest terms yet, and a seven-hour climate change “town hall” on CNN this month featured Democratic presidential hopefuls promising everything from abortion and plastic straw bans to government-ordered veganism as solutions to halt supposed climate change.

Nadler’s Fake Impeachment Inquiry 5 replies
Posted by Garnet 9/9/2019 5:38:16 AM Post Reply
The impeachment of a president, parliamentary esoterica notwithstanding, involves three straightforward steps. First, the House authorizes the Judiciary Committee to open a formal impeachment inquiry. Next, that committee conducts an investigation to determine if the president has committed any offense justifying his removal from office. Finally, if such evidence is discovered, the full House votes to approve one or more articles of impeachment. The Democrats, despite their accusations of dark doings at the White House, can’t muster enough votes in the House to complete the first step toward removing President Trump. Consequently, Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has decided to conduct a fake impeachment inquiry.

To date, five congressmen from Texas have resigned instead of seeking re-election in 2020. Their resignations signal two things from GOP leadership. The first is the realization that Texas is now lost. The second is that this loss is due entirely to the changing demographics resulting from legal and illegal immigration. The five congressmen that have resigned are Bill Flores (17th), Will Hurd (23rd), Pete Olson (22nd), Kenny Marchant (24th), and Mike Conaway (11th). Of these five, Congressman Conaway is unique in that his district will likely remain red for some time. He has not faced an opponent in numerous election cycles.

After O’Rourke told gun owners that “Hell, yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15″ during the Democrat debate on Thursday, Cain dared Beto O’Rourke on Twitter to come and take his AR-15. Buttigieg agreed with O’Rourke that Cain’s comment on Twitter was a “death threat,” and the South Bend mayor admonished Cain for failing to have a more intelligent conversation about gun issues.

Loudest among them is Robert Francis "Horse Mouth" O'Rourke
