Trump may be outside our norms. But he is succeeding for all of us.



By Hugh Hewitt
October 7 at 7:46 PM
Washington Post
Excerpt:

As President Trump’s first two years in office come to a close, we’ve seen two originalist justices confirmed to the Supreme Court, 26 originalist appeals court judges confirmed, 10 more nominated , and 41 new district court judges on the bench and dozens more pending. Add to that: the repeal of the sequester on defense spending and a massive military rebuild underway; a massive tax cut of unprecedented depth and structural change; a renegotiated trade deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada; withdrawals from the awful Iran deal and, in effect, the absurdist Paris accord; the rollback of job-killing and bureaucrat-empowering regulations by the hundreds; an economy surging while unemployment drops to 3.7 percent ; and a new entente in the Middle East (one that arose despite U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel) that sees the United States and Israel aligned and cooperating closely with Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain and now a new government in Iraq against the expansionist Iranian theocrats.

Did I mention the devastation and defeat of ISIS in its physical “caliphate”?

That’s not even the entire list of accomplishments, but it’s enough to have silenced the #NeverTrumpers who used to mock Trump-supporting conservatives by posting a street sign carrying the name “Gorsuch” above rising floodwaters. Those of us who follow the president’s often confusing, loud, extemporaneous and disruptive presidency not by his tweets but by his administration’s deeds and those of congressional Republicans are amused that the #NeverTrump rump has stopped the “but Gorsuch” nonsense.

Many of the successes, especially with regard to the judiciary, are because of the unparalleled skill of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), supported by Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and the Senate GOP caucus, which has almost always held together as a whole. McConnell is, as I’ve said before, the single most effective congressional leader the GOP has had in my lifetime. And it looks as if his majority will grow in November. The Republican House Majority may be preserved as well. Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and their caucus crafted and passed the tax bill as well as 14 Congressional Review Act resolutions and the robust military spending bills. Republican candidates should point both to the achievements outlined above and the rapidly expanding economy in their closing campaigns.

They should also dwell on the prospect of the enraged left controlling anything in government. Democrat Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), who would take the gavel of the House Judiciary Committee, has already promised a pursuit of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to satisfy his party’s fringe. Democrat Maxine Waters (Calif.), who would gain the gavel of the House Financial Services Committee, has urged the physical pursuit of her Republican colleagues across and out of public places. The radical rump of the Democrats, led again by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), would set out to destroy the Trump economic momentum and to paralyze the regulatory rollback with a hundred hearings and inquisitions.

Trump is as wearying today as Andrew Jackson must have been in 1829 to the people of both parties who are used to different rules sets. I am one of them. Thus my criticisms of the president are many and detailed. But my fear of the wild-eyed left is far greater than my discomfort with his bull-in-china shop politics.

Funny this President of ours is exactly what a lot of us wanted. Someone to stop being a punching bag for the left. When we get this sort of man we suddenly get weak kneed and cry when he fights back. It's time to realize that there is no real problem, it's just what happens when you stand up for yourself.

Trump has led the way in showing how much greatness there still is left in America and how we can even halt the spiral of decline if just stand up fierce and unafraid of the demoralizing, degenerate, decadent Left. A “gentlemanly” swamp-thing could never have done that; it took an old school New York wiseass tapping in to the tens of millions of Americans all over this country who, in spite of the media and establishment’s best propaganda efforts, still have their heads screwed on straight. These have been great times for this country and Lord do I hope they continue with not just a Republican Senate but a House, as well, one that will come around even more and REALLY start having the President’s back.

When you stop and think about it, what has the President done other than do away with the Left's policies, programs and trade deals that had us slowly headed towards third world status as a nation. Unlike his predecessor, he knew EXACTLY what had to be done to turn the country around. And even today, the Left's still getting in the way. On closing the border, on working with Federal Immigration Authorities, on shutting down sanctuary cities and states, etc., with a promise to rescind the tax cuts if they regain control in Congress. Our two party system has devolved into Conservatives defending their country against people who would destroy it...

Hugh Hewitt was a big time nevertrumper. Sounds like he's coming around some, just like Mitch McCommie whom he gives far too much credit to for all of the things that Trump has accomplished on his own without any help from the establishment.

Just looking at his accomplishments so far, I am certain President Trump will go down in history, even that written by libturd professors, as the greatest President EVER. He is a powerful lesson on why we need non politicians in office, just like the Founders planned. IF, and it is a big "IF", we take the Hose and Senate in 2018, his successes will grow even greater. We finally have someone with big brass ones in charge. :2cents:

Democrats don’t intend to have a structure that benefits us the people. They intend to have a structure that benefits them the leftwing rulers.

The way they get there is by riling up easy to influence people with singular issues that make use of envy, limited pie worldview, fear mongering, singular emotional issues and blatant lying to depict the other side as greedy heartless racist misogynist bigoted old king wannabes, thus attemping to get people angry, upset, hateful and emotional to be AGAINST things ather than for anything. This is essentially mental terrorism, and because tearing stuff down is always much easier, they’re more successful than their actual truthful positions merit.

Voter education has started though, largely via the internet, and people are waking up to simple truths about democrat/socialist failures, with a few notable exceptions of course.

The left, we saw this week and last, contrasts unfavorably with the president’s hyperbole and occasional cruelty. It is now a snarling, enraged collective scream. To give it power would be to risk fraying even further the common bonds of citizenship.


On the one hand, Hewitt praises McConnell (and his caucus) for his ruthless effectiveness; on the other hand, he chides "the left" for not (in his view) maintaining the common bonds we're all supposed to share as citizens.

Hewitt either doesn't realize that he/we can't simultaneously have partisan political effectiveness and common bonds of citizenship, or he's a hypocrite who simply doesn't care.

To give power to a party which effective believes in "guilty until proven innocent" definitely supports the argument with no hypocrisy whatsoever. Democrats look at me as a older white male and assume I'm guilty of something at worst, or benefiting from some sort of contrived notion of "privilege" at best. This is the poisoned mind and fever-dreams of today's left.

The left IS toxic to the bonds of citizenship.

I think the "common bonds we're all supposed to share" refers to something other than the Left's attempted destruction of Brett Kavanaugh, you peoples' willingness to commit infanticide, let men in girls' bathrooms, gender confusion, etc. Unfortunately, there isn't much we have in common when you come right down to it...

I think support for the advise and consent role of the Legislative Branch is pretty universal.

you peoples' willingness to commit infanticide,


Is also known as an individual right to privacy.

This is a myth.

gender confusion, etc.


Is also known as freedom to choose a gender identity other than the one you were born with.

By all means, feel free to live your life the way you choose - you have that right.

The Left is toxic to everything it touches, including the very power it craves.

Then why did your side just try to undermine it with lies, fraud, and corruption (again)?

Does this trump the right to life?

Too bad. The science is settled.

Your post pretty much proves my point, the Left's total lack of common sense...

What you don't realize is that your party lost touch/bond with the people because all of you blatantly lie too much. You all also cheat, commit fraud, break the law and champion criminals and deviants over innocents.

People are wide awake and are sick and tired of it and your kind.

Only if you're a completely retarded murderer.

What you're saying basically boils down to "As long as you commit murder in private, it's no longer murder."

Wow, you have no self-awareness. Who turned the whole Supreme Court nomination process into one big partisan fiasco? And don’t say “but muh Merrick Garland.” That boat sailed with Joe Biden. Your side was hoisted on its own petard (I know, I’m kind of mixing metaphors!) so don’t complain now. After all, as your hero Obama says, elections have consequences.
