While the losers out there are whining about all the stuff that makes no difference at all unless you are a snowflake, Trump is slowing down the illegal invasion, in fact, they are starting to sneak OUT over the Canadian border, and the economy is running full steam - should break 3% and come in just under 4 this quarter...something democratic insanity was not able to do for years.

And he is doing it without the help anyone in UseLess, er, Congress.

Yeah, whine about the stupid stuff, guys.

The last guy was was the racist pig...

Bannon going back to Briebart is just preaching to the choir.

Go President Trump go.
Down here in Texas some are talking about 35-50% increases in sales since Trump was elected. The minute he won the election things changed. A local radio host did a show recently where business owners called in to relate their experiences. All talked about optimism.

Good thing only a few items are on the agenda when Congress gets back.
I just don't see it.

Many people on the left may hate this entire list, but this is the kind of stuff he campaigned on.

1. Conservatives and libertarians loved his Supreme court selection and he got him through.

2. The economy is still doing well, jobs are being created at a rapid rate, he's out of TPP, renegotiation of NAFTA with more favorable terms for the US is getting underway, and the US manufacturing index is at a 33 year high. (notice I did not give him credit for the stock market because that's a bubble that's the Fed's fault)

3. He's been tougher on ISIS than Obama

4. He's making slow progress on illegal and other risky immigration (more resources to Homeland Security, better vetting, slowly increasing the arrest and deportation of illegal immigrant gang members etc.)

5. He's at least trying to deal with the impossible situation in North Korea instead of allowing it to fester like the last 3 presidents. So far N Korea seems to have backed down a bit.

6. He's reducing regulations on manufacturing, putting rules in place that stifle the creation of new regulations, etc...

7. Unlike his moronic predecessor, he's made it clear he thinks the police are not the bad guy and he's trying to help them.

8. There's a hiring freeze on federal employees.


Other than the Russia fiasco (which is mostly left wing and media bullsh$t), claims that he's racist (which is mostly left wing and media bullsh$t), and a failed attempt at passing a BAD healthcare package that the Senate put together, I think about 90% of everything that people are screaming about is media hype, lies, spin, BS and honest political disagreement. If you hate what he's doing, that's a political perspective, but he's slowly getting things done.

Tax reform may be complicated, but I don't see how he doesn't get TAX CUTS to pass a republican congress eventually. They may argue about which candy to give out, who to give it to, and how much, but it's still hard to reject giving out candy.

The same thing with infrastructure spending. If he's willing to send billions of dollars to California, NY, and other liberal states do you really think they are all going to say no even if they don't get to spend it exactly how they would like?

It is so much easier to say what they are told to say by the media.
Feeble minds are the fodder of the left.

The only chaos out there is the left- worst political shape since the 1920s. Trump threw water on the wicked witch and the flying monkeys are in a tizzy.

OOOOO eeee OOOOO

Of course, "media hype, lies, spin, BS and honest political disagreement" is at least 90% of everything people are screaming about. In fact, I have no idea what you think the other 10% is.

You know what is crazy, Classy. For 8 years you kept saying you were ready to leave the country because everything was just too depressing. Now we get a flake running the show and you see nothing but blue skies and rainbows.

Of course I'm leaving out the mooch who only made it ten days as WH Comms Director.

It would also be another thing if all these people shared similar ideologies but that can't be further from the truth. Just like the post earlier talking about how Trumps base is growing (even those the articles cited don't back up that statement). The President was right when he joked he could shoot someone and not lose a supporter but to any rational being the SS Trump is very listlessly lost at sea.

Edit) oh how could I forget both his SOS and SOD also walked back hos brilliant Korea comments as well. Wonder how long they're safe.
Just because people leave because their job is done does not mean the administration is in disarray (as opposed to a previous administration that just lied when they screwed up and nobody was ever fired). Bannon signed up for 8-12 months, and spent more than 12 months with the campaign/early presidency. He will be able to do more to help 'drain the swamp' back with Breitbart News.

That is so right, his job (charter) was done. There is no doubt in my mind that the minority leaders in both chambers are now on Stephen K. Bannon's destroy list. Political careers of RINO's are also in danger, and those who would put our civil liberty's in danger. Watch Mr Stephen K. Bannon crusade against those who oppose the President.

Spelling out "Stephen K. Bannon" reminds me of another iconic figure who was revered by more than a few -

"Alfred E. Neuman"

I often copy and paste from Wikipedia to include exact name including middle.

I am consistent for our President, previous Presidents, our current Attorney General and so on. Not because of revered of anything, just consistent.

I just don't think that you get it fast4522, the RINOs, who I take to mean the traditional Republicans, have won. They will moderate Trump. Bannon is fringe; always was, always will be.

Yup, Bannon was the anti-globalist in the administration.

He gone now.

As an article at "Conservative Review" points out, this administration started out with three factions in Trump's West Wing, each pushing their own agenda. They were the NY liberals, led by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the establishment GOP, led by Reince Priebus, and the nationalist populists, led by Steve Bannon.

Priebus is gone and Bannon is gone, and the West Wing is staffed by more NY liberals like Gary Cohn and Dina Powell.
