Yeah yeah. As if a little good old fashioned authoritarianism ever hurt anyone.

How is trump authoritarian?

CNN told Marcus he was.

Koolaid anyone?

Why is Trump authoritarian ?

* Look at the number of his appointees (Cabinet Secretaries ) who have left because they did not get along with Trump and his policies. Trump runs on guts and Fox news, neither of which is very comforting. Trump's guts have resulted in many bankruptcies, upteen lawsuits and so many investigations.

* He has no regard for laws and is ready to break them at any time ( remember he could shoot anyone on Fifth Avenue and have no consequences) .

* He was ready to reject the election result unless he won . He still questions when his candidates lose . The only valid case of voter fraud is ia Republican in NC.

* His and his followers assertion that his version of reality is the only legitimate one, and that all others are ‘fake'

You also have the billionaire heirs, typically useless pieces of sh*t,

Isn't Trump a heir . His net worth ( who knows what it is ) is no more than his inheritance put in stock market. That after many bankruptcies, upteen money laundering and many more lawsuits .

These are men like Soros who mess with politics and attempt to influence popular opinion with their media corporations.

Isn't Fox news owned by Murdoch who was born outside USA. That is even bigger than Soros's empire and much more directly controlled. You just like them because it blows your beagle (actually Trump-et).

Trump done more so far than Obama did in 8 years.

He has broken more alliances than any other President before him

Not any more treasonous than Merkle and Tony Blair pumping for Obama and Hillary. Or Norway, Ireland, and Saudi Arabia giving money to the Clintons, Paul Ryan, etc.

The real treason is leaking the fake dossier to the Press, then using an article based on the leak to justify a FISA warrant against a Political Campaign without revealing the chain of evidence to the Judge.

I guess we agree to disagree.

Lol, the way that Democrats cannot admit there are easily distinguishable races both visually and genetically, or exactly two sexes like everyone's two parents, or that the two sexes have distinct thought patterns?

I don't personally know any democrats that question any of those things.


How about the Liberal belief that a 3rd trimester baby is nothing but "a clump of cells" and deserves no legal protections from being ripped limb from limb for the mother's convenience?

These are social issues being clumped in as scientific issues. Let us refrain from muddying the waters

The Special Prosecutor has spent two years and has come up with little more than a handful of rinky-dink “process crimes” — mainly lying under oath, engineered by Mr. Mueller’s legal team and old friends in the FBI and DOJ after-the-fact. The Mueller investigation started with a false predicate — collusion with Russia — and entailed loads of prosecutorial mischief. ...

They have had more than that. Flynn lying was not a mere lying but a potential blackmail issue. Many Russians have been indicted and new stuff comes out every day. Trump keeps on breaking ( and not just bending) the rules.

Health Care is simply unaffordable for a growing demographic of the sinking middle class. Much of that is due to plain old racketeering, and I propose that it could be mitigated to some degree if a simple law were passed that required doctors, surgeons, hospitals, labs, and other players to publicly post prices for their services ..

The author is going all over the map and this article seems more like a rant rather than raising any serious issue.

The Left especially has no inclination to address immigration reform. As long as they mendaciously refuse to even make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration, nothing can be done. The Right is also dishonest and cowardly about it, fearing to alienate the ballooning Hispanic voter bloc. ...

Not true. While the right is more stringent about immigration, left will support an immigration reform that will allow only needed ( read highly skilled) workers in USA. Heck, as long as it is not racial or stupid ( read the wall) , left is ready to engage on the immigration issue and if we ( read the Tech companies) can work without immigrants, that should be good too.

Fix economy duh!

Debt will fix when we cut off government spending.

Republicans had the house, senate and Presidency. They passed what they considered will fix the economy and debt. Where is it?

Welfare barely exists? Really??

Stick to the topic. Why is the debt 1.4 Trillion ( increased by ~ 1 Trillion) and no change in economy instead of going all over the map. Welfare has not increased and did not contribute to the increase. Of course we could argue many things such as getting rid of the military or all welfare and all SS and medicare but that is not the topic

Point being that the Conservative states are poor because they pay lot less importance to the education. Education is an investment and breeds startups and moves for existing companies. Not every penny spent by the state is welfare but it can be an investment. Blindly branding every penny spent by state as waste is a very short sighted view.

California is the number one Welfare state in the country.

even more importantly, no one here has answered a simple question: if D's are so much better for poor people, then why do working poor move from CA to TX in droves? Why is it that mega-rich are the ones moving to worker's paradise CA?

There are many reasons for people to migrate out of dem state ( BTW California is not one of the states where people are moving out of and Texas is not one of the top ten in inward migration either) . People are still moving westward, farming states and rust belt is also losing people.

* Weather : Northern states are colder
* Higher cost : Rich states real estate would be more expensive because they are more desirable. Once retired or semi retired, it make no sense to pay higher real estate cost when you can move to a bigger house and cheaper place.
* There is still a westward movement

You do not see people moving into deep red states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee or Kentucky (Alabama is an exception)

Is Trump actually Dracula who wants to drink People's blood ( actually that maybe true) but above all with the attention Clinton's get, either they are genius to not get caught or the Republicans are lying. Tell me which one is it.

+1. While I cannot vouch for each and every point made here, the writer has made a genuine effort to understand a phenomenon , Trump. Good or bad aside, Trump is unique in getting away with lies and disinformation. As much as I disagree with the cult , he is a master salesman and a bad administrator ( and I say knowing that many of his businesses went bankrupt)

That is pretty funny, so incredibly removed from the reality of what the WaPo actually publishes.

WaPo is nothing but another mouthpiece of the Democratic Party. That's why is so amazing that they gave any time at all to letting someone praise Trump's actions.

Why would you repeat the SAME lie over again, when anyone paying attention knows how biased WaPo is?

Please provide proof in number of daily articles WaPo publishes that they are equal in number.

OK, I agree that it is not the same # of articles in WaPo and it is Progressive leaning. But many times you can find opinion pieces from very reputable conservatives.

True, but individuals with Trump Derangement Syndrome (which is 95% of media) would argue that sky is green if Trump said that it is blue.

Well if Trump says the sky is blue, you have to literally go out and determine if it is grey and vice-versa( remember his inaugural speech)

His behaviour has raised a lot of questions

1. Calling Russia for help followed by Russia interfering in the election
2. Invitation to Russians in the WH
3. His joint press conference with Putin

and many more. And this is not deep state or mainstream press but a general observation.

Where does Mueller get his power? From a government agency. He was not appointed by congress and it is a travesty of justice that this unfounded probe is allowed to continue. Mueller still has not uncovered a single shred of evidence to support Russian collusion and I doubt he ever will. Instead he will set up his lie traps like he did with Flynn and indict people like Manafort for tax evasion from years ago. Cohen plead guilty to campaign finance violations when it is questionable he even broke the law. The Mueller probe is nothing more than the deep state trying to take down a fine president who fulfills h

The State of California has now spent over $5 billion on its long-delayed high-speed rail project — roughly the same amount of money that Democrats are refusing to provide President Donald Trump for his border wall proposal.

God willing she will

Yeah, God is going to help out the side that butchers unborn babies wholesale.

No God will help the side where priests are allowed to molest or where people are allowed to kill in the name of religion (Islamic terrorists) Snide remark aside, God is unique to everyone and you do not have a trademark on God. Abortion ( as long as it is not late term) allows women to control if she wants to bring a child to this world. Maybe she is a teen mother, maybe she was molested or maybe she is just not ready. You are no one to tell me which God to believe and it does not have anything to do with OP's question..

You can say that with a straight face when the country has millions of illegals that got past this security and plenty more on the way

The net immigration from Mexico has been negative ( means more people are going back than coming in) . Economic illegals to US are dropping because other countries are getting richer.

The caravan is not illegal. They are coming here for asylum, mostly from Central America

Most illegals (overstaying)and drugs come through normal ports

Kevin Corke, @FoxNews “Don’t forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars....” Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!

Some of the ways people deal with truths they would rather not hear:

* silence
* change the topic
* blame the speaker for creating bad feelings
* misrepresent the speaker's point, and them shame him for making a point he did not


Or they could believe the alternate truths spewed by the competitor/opposition.
