In Trump territory for a change

Not New York but Las Vegas, and not in enemy territory but at Freedomfest. For a change everyone I speak to is a supporter of PDT. Everyone naturally has something or other to grizzle about, but I am completely onside in everything he has done so far and has attempted to do. I am in particular at one with Michael Anton, formerly known as Publius Decius Mus, America Is Not the Common Property of All Mankind – nor, for that matter, is Australia – on the single most important issue facing the West:

The populace is roused. For the first time in a generation, it actually has political leaders trying to act in their interest. That is intolerable to the open borders crowd, which is reacting with fury and hysteria.

And not just there. The economy is booming, unemployment is falling, the political culture is shifting, the Supreme Court may become benign for at least a generation, the left, along with a fair chunk of the Republican Party, is being exposed as politically insane, global warming climate change is losing its grip on policy, and America’s allies are slowly, very very slowly, coming round to seeing where their interests are. From today’s news:

TRUMP STORMS LONDON…
As popular as Obama in middle of first term…

But particularly liked the story about the anti-Trump demo in Brussels that expected thousands and ended up with a handful.

Still the media, academia and the corporate world have not signed on, and with politics as perception who knows how things will go from here since there is always something about to go wrong. And that PDT is only equal to Zero at this stage is either fake news or a continuous worry.

TO WHICH MAY BE ADDED THIS:

My thoughts exactly specified here. It may not be politic to say it, or at least that’s how it used to be, but it is surely right if we are to preserve what we can while we are still able to.

    …. since there is always something about to go wrong.
    My goodness, you’re being such a pessimist. Of course the odd things will go wrong but of late these have been out-numbered by a tide of things going right for a change. The bigger players will of course take longer to come around. I think it took most corporates a couple of decades to fall for climate change (I think there was a change in sentiment around the turn of the century). There’s a glimmer of hope and it’s a wonder it hasn’t been snuffed out yet. Long may it persist. More winning please.

    The MSM is claiming that “1400” or “thousands of” anti-Trump protesters showed up in Brussels but the video shows otherwise.

    Anti-Trump Protest at NATO Draws Only a Couple Dozen (Video)

    “Make Peace Great Again” organizers were expecting few thousand protestors to gather outside the NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday evening to protest President Trump’s attendance, but only a couple dozen demonstrators showed up.

    NATO leaders cave in after Trump tirade

    Donald Trump created “utter panic’’ among NATO allies after he warned the US could withdraw from the ­organisation.

    Loving these headlines. I see Melania is dressed like a Grecian urn for the charm offensive as well. And now I am reading that Trump has delivered a broadside to May for not delivering Brexit as per the people’s will. Go you good thing.
    Trump has nothing to prove and nothing to lose. He’s fearless, telling it like it is, but better, showing just what a punch of pussies these euroweenies are and what a bigger bunch of pussies former POTUS’s were to kow tow to those paper tigers.

    From my travels in North America and a cruise one time with predominantly American passengers, I found the average person in the US has a far better grip on the realities of economics than the average Aussie. Not sure why.

    Q. What’s a Grecian urn?

    Just saw a picture of Prez Trump, Melania, Theresa the appeaser and her hubby at Blenheim (Churchill’s birthplace) taken a few hours ago. Trump looks magnificently presidential, Melania looks like the uber Greek goddess that she is, Theresa the appeaser looks like a home county housewife being propped up by either pills or life support (I suspect both and the humane thing to do is to pull that life support) and May’s hubby looks like a relic from the Faulty Tower’s bar who needs another gin and tonic and a man that even Dad’s army would have rejected in 1940.

    Lovely description there, Cassie. We will be in the UK early August and look forward to checking out what is going on re Brexit. May has been a disaster but she is attempting to tough it out. The Germans still mean to take by stealth what they couldn’t take by Blitzkrieg. The media fifth column have been very helpful to Germany on this and too many Brits have forgotten, if they ever knew given the leftism in the education system, that sovereignty is something precious that you have to fight for. Meantime, I will chase up a pic of Melania’s Grecian dressing for a quick fashion moment and compare notes tonight over Catallaxy drinkies, although sadly I don’t think a 5’3″ blonde like me could carry it off. You have to be tall. And leonine.

  10. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Cassie, just took a peek, couldn’t resist. If I wore that Grecian style with the shoulder panel drops, I would look like a pair of curtains waiting to be drawn. 🙂

    Melania only just gets away with it.

    My first day waking up in America was in Vegas. I looked out the window and saw the TRUMP sign on top of a giant gold building. A moment more profound than I thought at the time.

  12. Cassie of Sydney

    Darling Lizzie, me too though on me it would also look as though the curtains had fallen in.

    See ya tonight for a drinky-poo!

    But particularly liked the story about the anti-Trump demo in Brussels that expected thousands and ended up with a handful.

    If, as expected, the loony left unleashes its violence on the streets of London in the next 24 hours, I believe it will be a profound learning moment for the British electorate about who actually opposes Brexit and strong national sovereignty and supports open borders. Trump has a divine talent for forcing his enemies to reveal who they really are.

    He could even end up helping the British Conservative Party take out the garbage (including May).

    Trump looks magnificently presidential, Melania looks like the uber Greek goddess that she is, Theresa the appeaser looks like a home county housewife being propped up by either pills or life support and May’s hubby looks like a relic from the Fawlty Towers’ bar who needs another gin and tonic and a man that even Dad’s army would have rejected in 1940.

    And of course the Oz includes a pic of the sole photogenic protester at the demo.

    Viva Las Vegas…and while there why not talk about Trump and his Casinos…

    Trump has 6 Chapter 11 filings aka bankruptcy so far, most of these were connected with Trump Casinos of various sorts, so he managed to lose money while running casino so not really as such a successful business man as he claims to be*

    And in all of the Chapter 11 filings he was stiffing not only share holders but architects, contractors, engineers, suppliers, tradespersons…

    *But not to worry, for that is par for the course, for as Liar in Chief, in the 497 days as POTUS, President Trump has made 3,251 false or misleading claims or what most people would read as lies.

    Nice photo. I’m staying chez Trump in the Golden Tower of Vegas in a couple of months time. Will report back on decor and comfort, natch.

    Nobody quite knows what the Leavers thought would happen, but I don’t think they wanted Brexit Superlight!
    Perhaps there should have been a follow-up referendum listing the options, from really soft to hard-core? I still cannot like Trump, though Hilary would have been worse.

  18. Ubique

    Q. What’s a Grecian urn?

    It’s a top secret and certainly something the Greek Tax Office hasn’t the faintest idea about.

  19. BorisG

    Nobody quite knows what the Leavers thought would happen, but I don’t think they wanted Brexit Superlight!

    Among 52% that voted for Brexit, some wanted hard and some (probably a smaller proportion) soft Brexit. Thus if you ask the entire population, soft would be preferred.

    What Trump does is unprecedented interference in their internal affairs of another country. Obama interfered as well, which was wrong, but he did not suggest an alternative PM. This is outrageous.

  20. Spring is coming

    The headlines appear as though Trump has invaded Europe. Where was MSM when they actually were invaded by illegals? Looking fwd to the dozens of protesters with their ceremonial fires, barricades and tear gas. Should be absolutely smashing.

  21. Mother Lode

    And of course the Oz includes a pic of the sole photogenic protester at the demo.

    I think that strange cryptogram in the corner of her poster might be meant to be a swastika with a red line through it.

    That is the level of smarts of these people – they accuse him of being a Nazi but don’t really know who they were. Just bad, I suppose.

    Umm Boris, Obumma and his DNC cohorts actively campaigned against Netanyahu in the election in early 2015. That was outrageous.

    None of the 52% who voted to cease to be members of the EU were voting to become indentured serfs of the EU.

  24. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray

    Tim, the new term for indentured serfs is Europeons, from ‘peon’, peasant, or someone whom elites can safely pee on.

  25. Has anyone noticed how all of these women in influential positions look the same? I mean exactly the same – May, Merkel, Triggs etc. Have we been infiltrated by aliens who are cloning these people in preparation to taking over the world.

    Bottom of The Sun front page says:

    Trump Lets Rip: Pages 2,3,4,5,6,7

    That’s what you call making an impact, hehe.

  27. Up The Workers!

    To Nerblnob at 7.19 am, who asked:

    “What’s a Grecian Urn?”

    Answer – About two shekels an hour, if it’s a particularly good street corner.

  28. Percy Popinjay

    Brexit is Brexit is Brexit.

    Hard/soft, what a load of crap.

    It should have taken place already. May is an utterly useless collectivist frump.
