In a far cry from the classic Frank Capra film “Mr. Deeds goes to Washington” starring Jimmy Stewart as the sympathetic, wide eyed idealist turned overnight Senator clashing face first into the reality of Washington power politics; President Trump came out swinging at the sound of the bell, knocking out opponents, and head banging longtime political bosses, in a fierce take over of the sandlot.
He campaigned on a policy of commonsense. He dismissed elitist interest. He took on the Main-Stream Media. He operated outside all conventional rules of Washington insider politics. That is what got him elected.
It is undeniable that President Donald J. Trump has by every measure of analysis shaken up the Washington, DC elitist, political establishment across the board. Much to their consternation, he has defied them all, be they heavy hitter lobbyist, high paid political consultants, professional pollsters, media pundits, all of the K. Street regulars, and elected officials from both parties.
Recall, during the campaign, every pollster, candidate, and talking head all but coronated Hillary R. Clinton as the next President. Stunningly, the American voters rejected the establishment candidates and delivered the White House in a populist landslide to the ultimate outsider.
In a cascade of furious tirades, reeling back from the rejection, disbelief, and bruised ego’s, every quarter of the political elites lashed out at the President. They continue to delay confirmation of his cabinet picks, and denigrate the voters themselves. They orchestrated protest that turned into street riots, burning and looting in an orgy of anarchy.
The establishment insiders are unmasked. They dropped the pretense of tolerance and displayed their hypocrisy for all to see. They denuded the mainstream media from any vestige of impartiality. They are unabashedly biased, vengeful, and plotting open sedition.
From this point onward, they cannot be taken at face value or even seriously because they just hate how President Trump exposed their nefarious globalist, open border agenda, as much as they hate the man himself. They brashly published their plan for the takedown of the President and lawmakers voted into the majority, by plotting a soft coup.
Here is why: President Trump is willing to take the political heat and pay the price to keep his word. They are stymied by a political opponent who welcomes political attack because the more he is attacked, the more immune he becomes to it, because the more the public grows tired of it. Here is a President who then goes over their heads, sidesteps their media filters, and takes his case directly to the people. Middle America just wants someone to get the job done.
The establishment are in a panic over losing power, privilege, and position. Truth be told, they are furious at you, the American people, who had the temerity to vote them out. You must be punished for your insolence. So we see they must demoralize and denigrate, through blame and shame, to ridicule all Trump voters as racist, homophobic, misogynist, deplorable, and uneducated.
Outsmarted and outmaneuvered by a campaign strategy and unorthodoxy, unlike any other in the history of American politics, they have yet to accept the blame for presenting an un-american statist platform that is deeply offensive to the American working class.
President Trump has shifted the central core of power and money in Washington, from the elites back to the working class. This has compelling populist appeal and he knows it. He told them to their face and promised the American people at the inauguration;
“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left. And the factories closed.”
President Trump’s cabinet picks were skillfully plotted and could have been drawn out from Hollywood’s central casting. For top diplomat, Rex Tillerson, congenial, world class negotiator. He established lasting relationships with the leaders of oil producing nations as a professional deal maker and consensus builder. This is the guy they have to make a deal with and who already laid down a foundation of trust by the many far more important oil deals they have already struck with him.
Our adversaries know if they cannot reach a meeting of the minds with this nice guy, they must eventually face down the Secretary of Defense, who is a former Marine combat commander, whose own men under his command nicknamed him “Mad-dog.”
The President proclaimed that our border control system is broken and set out to fix it. The leftist Judge shopped until they found a compliant progressive left wing judge who would play their game and overreach their authority into what is exclusive Executive branch responsibility.
The policy of common sense applies to not opening up the door without checking who you let in first. The Founder’s empowered the President with the same instructions every parent give their children when they tell them do not open the door to strangers.
They want to paint the President’s order as racist, when that is just not the truth. The Executive Branch is privy to information that the Judiciary is not nor in the case of national security cannot be in the public domain.
Commonsense dictates that Customs Agents are screening for Jihadist. Not all Muslims are Jihadist, but of a certainty all Jihadist are Muslims. The denomination of Jihadist Muslims fall into the fringe category of “salafist”, who adhere specifically to murder and mayhem against “kafir” , us infidels.
Muslim nations in the region bar Salafist from entering their countries also. ISIS [Daisch] and Al Qaeda are Salafist. Islamists of this nature are sworn to the violent overthrow of the US government and plot the murder of anyone they deem unfit.
Additionally, National Security/Homeland Security, along with the highest levels of the Intelligence Community, report in classified and unclassified findings that an undisclosed quantity of blank U.S. Passports have been stolen, and counterfeit Visas/ Green Cards are in circulation in these 7 failed states.
It is within the fiduciary and constitutional authority of the executive branch to take these precautions, as set by precedent in past administrations to scrutinize entry and craft remedies to these known breaches to our security.
If we knew that 19 Saudi hijackers were mixed in with 1000 Saudi visa holders, we would be wise and within jurisprudence to detain and delay them, until such time we could identify or apprehend the threat.
In present day Washington, as in Frank Capra’s cinematic tale of graft, corruption and power politics, is also where an astounding lack of commonsense permeate.
This time the voters didn’t send Mr. Deeds, boy ranger to Washington, they sent Bruce Banner, aka the Incredible Hulk. His famous tag line was: “Don’t get me mad. You won’t like it when I get mad.”
As for the American people; they are the one’s who sent him there in the first place to do precisely what he is doing. His election sent a message: “Don’t get us mad, you will not like it, if you get us mad.”
