Trump Is On A Roll

In case you on the left hadn’t noticed, Trump is on a roll

If you are one of those who cannot use your television remote to escape the anti-Trump drumbeat of CNN and MSNBC – and the ever-present panelists from the New York Times and the Washington Post – you are probably unaware that President Trump has been on a bit of a roll lately.  In fact, you are likely to believe that the meaningless going nowhere impeachment and the Chicken Little interpretation of the killing of terrorist Qasem Soleimani is all that is happening in the world. Oh yeah, there is also that messy situation with the British royal family.

Just as you were shocked by Trump’s election in 2016 because your favorite news outlets misinformed you – making you believe that Trump had “no path to the presidency” – they may be setting you up again.

You were probably among those deeply disappointed when Special Counsel Robert Mueller determined that neither Trump, his family nor campaign staff conspired with the Russians – again having been led down the propaganda path for more than two years by your favorite folks in the Fourth Estate.

I bet you have been left scratching your head when all those Iranians recently took to the streets chanting “death to the Supreme Leader” even after the killing of Soleimani.  In fact, many were cheering the death of Soleimani.  I understand your confusion.  After all, you had been told just days before that killing the terrorist leader had united all the Iranian people against America.

But … that is what you get for believing you are getting informed by CNN and MSNBC – and the others reporting from the east coast liberal media bubble.  And … I hate to tell you; they are at it again.

You see, while you are myopically focusing on the latest obsessive anti-Trump, anti-Republican, anti-conservative spin, a lot of good things have been happening for America.  Trump is on a roll and here are a few of the more significant examples.

  1. The stock market just cannot seem to stop breaking records – and some economic analysts believe that the Dow Jones will soar through 30,000 sometime this year. You probably hear that the stock market only helps the rich … lol.  Tell that to the millions of Americans with stock-based retirement plans.
  2. Wages are going up AND faster for the lower- and middle-class workers than others. This is particularly true in those all-important industrial battleground states.
  3. Unemployment remains at record lows – and the lowest since before the Great Depression for minorities.
  4. Consumer confidence is at an all time high. That means lots of buying, lots of work.
  5. Trump has negotiated a deal with Mexico and Guatemala to prevent the mass illegal crossing of our southern border – which has already greatly reduced the numbers. Guatemala arrested a group of Iranians trying to follow the migration route into the United States.  The new fence will further cut back on illegal border crossing.
  6. The first phase of the China trade agreement is about to be signed, which will result in the termination of some of the tariffs. Good news for American farmers and manufacturers.
  7. After an inexplicable delaying tactic, the House has passed Trump’s new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada. Though Democrats made a face-saving claim that they substantially improved the deal, their changes were minor compared to Trump’s overall provisions.
  8. You remember how it was all over the news when a federal district judge blocked Trump from transferring money from the Department of Defense to build a stretch of THE WALL? There was very little news coverage of the fact that a federal appellate court reversed the lower court decision and freed up the money – and it is unlikely that the Supreme Court will reverse the Appellate Court or even take up the case.  It is now anticipated that another 400 miles of the wall will be constructed by the end of 2020.
  9. Trump was able to change the law so that Veterans can get medical treatment expeditiously at non-VA hospitals rather than waiting in line at the VA hospitals.
  10. Trump fought for and got a significant increase in the military budget.
  11. Apart from the controversial call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky, Trump secured funding for military weapons for the embattled nation.
  12. As a result of the impeachment by the House, Trump’s polling numbers have improved – and the percentage of Americans wanting him removed from office has declined below 50 percent.
  13. A record number of federal judges have been appointed by Trump – and that process is still moving at a rapid pace.

Looking to the future, it is all but certain that Trump will be acquitted by the Senate – officially innocent of the charges ginned up by a majority of the House Democrats.  Pelosi, her fellow Democrats and their allies in the media are quick to assert that Trump will always have that bad mark on is record.  True enough, but it is also possible that future historians will not look kindly on those who pushed through the shallowest and most partisan impeachment in American history.

This commentary was written as a public service for those who know nothing beyond what the east coast left-wing media cabal tells them.  It may save them from bewilderment, shock and depression should Trump win re-election – which is definitely possible.

So, there ‘tis.

    I was not surprised by Trump’s election victory, I was not surprised about the Iranian protestors and I won’t be surprised when the Senate acquits Trump on the impeachment charges. The media has been outright lying to me for so long that I simply ignore them. When I do watch the network news, especially CBS’s Nora O’Donnell’s bias is palpable. I usually only watch the local news for weather and college sports news.
