IS BARACK OBAMA THE MESSIAH?
"... A LIGHT WILL SHINE THROUGH THAT WINDOW, A BEAM OF LIGHT WILL COME DOWN UPON YOU, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE AN EPIPHANY ... AND YOU WILL SUDDENLY REALIZE THAT YOU MUST GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE FOR OBAMA" - BARACK OBAMA LEBANON, NEW HAMPSHIRE.
JANUARY 7, 2008.
Since the start of Donald Trump's historic campaign for the presidency and rise to power his political adversaries from Left, Right and Center have been consistently wrong in their predictions about his fate right up to Election Day. And they haven't stopped being wrong since, as we saw on Tuesday with Karen Handel's upset victory in Georgia.
First treating Trump as a clown they roared with laughter when he announced his candidacy saying that his inexperience, ignorance of policy and mediocre debating skills would make him the laughing-stock of the race and failure a certainty. Indeed, they predicted that Trump wouldn't survive the first GOP debate; that his rivals on the dabate stage - savvy, experienced, gifted politicians like Christe, Cruz, Bush, Kasich and Rubio - would cut Trump to ribbons and quickly end his run. But the exact opposite happened: he won that first debate and went on to do well in the others growing in popularity with Republicans and Independents.
Then they predicted that he could never surmount the opposition of the GOP establishment, the viciously, negative, hostile press and false image as a racist, sexist, xenophobic bully to win the GOP primaries; and again they were wrong as he tapped into the anger of a forgotten and collapsing middle class who wanted a President who'd reverse their fortunes and make them great and prosperous again.
Then it was predicted that the GOPe fearing Trump would take down the party and cost it the House and Senate would deny him the nomination at the Convention and choose Ted Cruz or someone else. But again they were wrong as his support with Republican voters was just too damn strong.
Then in late September with Trump unexpectedly surging in the polls and tying Hillary (see) it was predicted that the "world's greatest woman" (and most qualified candidate ever to seek the presidency) would crush Trump in debate, show voters how unfit he was for office, and runaway with the election. And though HIllary bested Trump in their first debate and pulled ahead in the polls by several points (see) it wasn't enough to make the Clinton machine comfortable that she'd win.
So they came up with an 'October surprise' that they thought would do Trump in: the leaking of the Billy Bush "Access Hollywood" tape where Trump said denigrating things about women (he was, btw, a liberal Democrat at the time). Because of the tape and subsequent multiple groping allegations (whatever happened to them?) Trump's poll numbers took a nose dive (see) as his enemies were uncorking the champagne in expectation of a Hillaryslide.
Trump beating Hillary would crash the Dow and world economy causing a domestic and global recession or worse.
But again from their broken, clouded, hate filled crystal balls the anti-Trumpers made yet another bad call. Predictably (immediately after the election) the very opposite occurred: the market began climbing after a slight fall, then soared into the stratosphere to record highs risng and rising as investors saw economic nirvava ahead.
What was the reason for the sudden upsurge of investor confidence and optimism?
IT WAS THE TRUMP EFFECT, STUPID!
The promise of MAGANOMICS: tax and regulatory relief (shrinking the size of our massively intrusive government) plus other business friendly polices (repeal of Obamacare, infrastructure rebuilding, trade renegotiation, etc.) designed to unleash the pent up GDP growth that Obamunism was suppressing.
It's no coincidence that before the election (going back to January 2009) the Fed hiked interest rates only once (showing little faith in Obama's abysmally bad recovery and redistributionist-social justice-fake climate science policies); while since, Janet Yellen raised rates not once, not twice, but a whopping THREE times. Why? In anticipation of a "TRICKLE DOWN" economic boom like Coolidge had in the 1920s, John Kennedy in the 1960s, and Reagan in the 1980s when there was "Morning in America."
Look at this Fed timeline:
THEN AT ITS JANUARY MEETING THE FED ACKNOWLEDGES THE "TRUMP EFFECT"
IT'S TIME TO DESTROY TRUMP
The only real difference between the radical, psycho, leftist loser on the left and the unhinged, brain broken billionaire on the right is that the one wanted to kill President Trump physically (and took out his rage on Republican Congressmen during a practice baseball game), and the other wants to kill him politically and takes aim and fires with lies, leaks, innuendo and character assassination. Otherwise they're of one mind and spirit, comrades in arms joined to the hip fighting in the same failing cause to unseat a U.S. President they hysterically fear more than hacking Russians, Moslem terrorists and fake science climate change.

Don Trump Jr. to Judge Pirro:
"You and I both know my father a long time. When he tells you to do something, guess what? There's no ambiguity in it."
After 24 months on the American political and world stage everyone knows who Donlad Trump is; they know that he's a brutally blunt, direct, straightforward man who hits back harder when he's hit; and pulls no punches holding nothing back when he fights to achieve his aims. Indeed, he was that way before his election; and defying expectations he'd be different once in office (softening his rhetoric and crude, harsh, aggressive style) he's hardly changed a bit.
in the blockbuster film Democrat Party, GOPe, liberal media for example
Indeed, the extreme politically incorrect Trump loves tormenting his opponents and eating them alive then spitting them out. Recall how this 900 pound gorilla treated his political rivals and enemies heaping a torrent of abuse and insults on them during the campaign: there was Carley Fiorina's looks, John Kasich's dining manners, Jeb's low energy, Rick Perry's IQ; there was "sad, lyin Ted" whose dad "killed JFK;" "crooked, weak Hillary" with her pathetic lack of "stamina and energy;" look how he eviscerated "little" Marco Rubio, called Obama "sick," and recently started in on Comey calling him a "nutjob." Earlier this year The New York Times compiled a list of 332 people, places and things that Trump has insulted on Twitter. For a good laugh you can read them here
I have written on the topic of President Trump winning the 2016 election in the wee hours of the morning on November 9th or 11/9 when the great Rust Belt state of Pennsylvania put him over the 270 electoral votes he needed to win. But what I wrote was a defense against those shell-shocked Trump haters on the Left who seized on the date "11/9" and spun it into an ominous sign that Trump would be a 9/11 disaster (11/9 reverse) as president:
Result: Wednesday, December 12, 1787
But there's more:
Result: 2776 days
It is days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date
Responding, the presumptive Republican nominee said:
“He doesn’t know me, never met me, doesn’t know what I am all about. I think they are very rude statements. Frankly tell him I will remember those statements. They are very nasty. It is ignorant for him to say that.
“When he won I wished him well. Now, I don’t care about him. I mean it doesn’t make any difference to me. Let’s see how he does, let’s see if he is a good mayor.”
A spokesman for Khan then hit back, saying:
“Donald Trump’s views are ignorant, divisive and dangerous - it’s the politics of fear at its worst and will be rejected at the ballot box just as it was in London.”
But it wasn't rejected. Trump having the last laugh over Sadiq Kahn (and that other idiot Pakistani Khirz Khan who slandered him at the DNC) was elected POTUS by a nation hurting economically and rightly fearful of radical Islamic terror. And to worsen the humiliation and anger of both Khans the president of Pakistan together with 53 other Sunni leaders (representing 1 billion Moslems and caring nothing about his ban) embraced the "ignorant," "bigoted," "divisive" Trump in Saudi Arabia as a good, wise and courageous man - the leader uniting them in the war against ISIS, al Qaida and Islamonazi terrorist Iran.
Perhaps never in the history of the world have so many Moslem heads of state joined forces behind a leader of a powerful infidel country. It's unprecedented and awesome and will go far in crushing and demoralizing the scourge of violent Islamic jihad .
"Tell Khan I will remember his rude statements about me."
Trump has kept his word.
Germany’s Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen announced today that Germany will be deploying a substantial force of tanks and armored vehicles to Lithuania, along the Russian border, where they will be joining the NATO anti-Russia force in the region, which already has upwards of 1,000 German troops involved.
While the timing would aim to directly link Germany’s military growth with its anti-Russia deployments, the reality is that the effort is also meant as a way to increase spending in an effort to PLACATE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION...
The French Parliament has approved an EUR600 million increase to the country's defence budget above current-year levels.
In total the 2017 budget will sit at EUR32.44 billion, a 1.8% increase over 2016. This is the latest in upward revisions of the French defence budget, with the new 2017 figures about EUR1.1 billion higher than was envisaged by the 2014-2019 Military Programming Law (LPM) and EUR775 million higher than the revised LPM of July 2015. Approximately EUR250 million of 'exceptional income' is included in the new budget figures, set to be sourced by land and property sales.

BRATISLAVA (Reuters) - Slovakia approved on Wednesday plans to spend 1.2 billion euros ($1.33 billion) by 2029 to replace the army's outdated armored personnel carriers, in the biggest defense modernization project in the country's history.
Slovakia is stepping up defense spending and its military presence in NATO missions after calls by U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP on allies to recommit themselves to the alliance.

Lithuania is determined to increase its defense spending amid US calls to meet the alliance's 2 percent defense spending target, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius told reporters on Tuesday.
“Security is not cheap. Otherwise the price is the entire country,” Bergmanis said. “Latvia’s government is committed to increase the country’s defense budget to 2% of GDP next year. As Latvia’s defense minister, I will fight to ensure this decision is not changed.”
March 22, 2017 WASHINGTON, Mar 21 — RIA Novosti. Turkey will increase defense spending in 2017, and thus closer to the goal to allocate 2% of its budget on defense, said Tuesday the Minister of foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu.
Last week, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis signed into law Romania’s annual budget, which for the first time provides for a defense authorization share equal to 2% of GDP. The budget drafted by the Government of Romania had received prior approval by the Parliament and the defense authorization provisions have been unanimously supported by all political parties.....
Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged on Friday that he wants NATO to "fall apart," as he criticized President Trump for urging allies to increase their defense spending.
"[T]hey should completely be falling apart, that will help," Putin said during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. "But we don't see that falling [apart] just yet."
June 28, 2017
Europe and Canada will raise defense spending at the fastest pace for three years in 2017, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday, partly aimed at showing the United States they are committed to shouldering more costs.
HANSEN AND TRUMP AGREE
EX-NASA SCIENTIST JAMES HANSEN SAYS PARIS ACCORD IS "BULL SH*T" AND "FRAUD"
Hansen, arguably the leading scientific voice of the global warming movement, said that the Paris Accord was "useless for reversing human CO2 emissions because it's based on promises, and lacks an enforcement mechanism." Isn't that what Trump is saying coming from as different direction?
In other words, both men are agreed that the Paris Accord (with more signatures) is another worthless Kyoto; for like Kyoto it won't stop the massive growing use of fossil fuels - the cheapest, most efficient, and wealth creating form of energy known to man - especially in industrializing third world states that won't go green unless we pay them billions...which isn't going to happen.
