Five minutes of good cheer

Sky News Australia never ceases to inform and entertain, especially the delightful Rita Panahi. And there’s the stupidity of Hunter Biden.

Plus, Hunter’s daddy, the daffy, old man drooling in the Oval Office. What an administration! Afghanistan returned to the fanatical Taliban, something Trump had well in hand with minimal troops and cash. Trump also had ISIS virtually eliminated in his first year. We’ll soon see how the Biden Team lets them regroup.

Trump had the southern U.S. border quiet and calm. Adiós to that! Mobs pouring in. Gas prices up, inflation in general. No more energy independence. America is back on the tit of foreign oil.

With Trump in Mar-A-Lago, America is being run like Portland, Chicago, New York City and the entire State of California. Democrats rule!

Adiós, Mr. President

The racist president meets with supporters in the Oval Office.

Donald Trump was not my first choice during the Republican primaries in 2016. Ted Cruz was, and I still think Cruz would make a superlative president. Maybe in 2024. My fingers are crossed. He’s as pugilistic as Trump.

But I quickly came to love and admire Trump after he took office. I believe him to be one of the best presidents in U.S. history, especially if you consider the challenging times in which we now live. In my mind, Trump is tied with Abraham Lincoln.

The accomplishments of the Trump Administration are legion. I’m not going to write a long list here. However, if you’re interested, just do an internet search. But below is a short list of my favorites. Before I do that, however, I will point you to an article in The American Mind, a publication of the Claremont Institute.

They cite what they consider his greatest achievement, that he exposed the corruption of the American ruling class. And he surely did, which explains the ongoing venom he faced throughout his four years in office from the “powers that be,” the powers that, seeing their last chance to avoid another four years, blatantly blocked his reelection.

Here are just a few of my favorite Trump accomplishments:

  1. Thriving economy.
  2. Trade deal that replaced NAFTA.
  3. Departing the ill-conceived Paris Climate Accords.
  4. Low jobless rate, for blacks the lowest in half a century.
  5. Tax cuts, both for individuals and businesses. Yes, spending cuts were needed too.
  6. Slashing regulations. Hard to overstate the importance of this one.
  7. Increased border security.
  8. Increased military spending.
  9. Embrace of Israel, the only Mideast nation where women walk free.
  10. Putting China in its place.
  11. Mideast peace agreements.
  12. Not one new foreign war.
  13. American energy independence.
  14. End of ISIS.
  15. Not so much an accomplishment as recognition of accomplishments were the five Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Five, count ’em.

If you’re a Democrat Socialist you’re unaware of these things because your “news sources” never mentioned them.

President Trump is one of a kind, in a very good way. America will be far worse off without him at the helm, punching the politically correct in the nose every darn day.

Smart young German

IT’S AN OVERCAST, cool morning here at the Hacienda. I’ve been outside doing chores like cleaning the birdbath, wiping the patio table and chairs, chopping up banana leaves, that sort of thing. Abel the Deadpan Yardman comes mañana for what likely will be the final grass cutting of the season. The rains seem to have ended.

Back indoors now, and I found this video and a few more featuring this young German woman. She’s 19 and apparently making quite a splash online with straight talking against the excessive leftist nincompoopery in the Western World.

She is Naomi Seibt.

Some are calling her the conservative answer to that unfortunate, manipulated, uninformed, mentally ill, strident, Swedish girl Greta Thunberg. I am not badmouthing Greta. All of those adjectives are lamentably accurate. Her hippie parents should be jailed.

I enjoy bringing intelligence to your attention. If I had a Patreon account you could reward me financially, but I do not have a Patreon account, but thanks anyway.

While on things political, I would like to point you again to the just-published Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of his Presidency by Doug Wead, a former adviser to two U.S. presidents. I mentioned this book in passing on another post recently. I had just begun reading it then, but now I’m on the home stretch of the 448-page work.

It’s incredible and sad that so little is known about the very significant accomplishments of the Trump Administration due to the news media’s deliberate obfuscation since Trump took office almost three years ago. As I’ve mentioned here repeatedly, about the sole source of accurate info has been White House newsletters. You must subscribe.

But now this excellent, informative book is available.

Wead points out that the Trump phenomenon is unique in that his election win was not the traditional matter of one party defeating the other party. It is more accurately described as the Outsiders defeating the Insiders. The Insiders include Republicans and Democrats both, which explains why so many establishment Republicans oppose him still.

And it explains why the Insiders, particularly hysterical Democrats, are still pushing anything they can invent to eject the Outsider Trump from the Oval Office.

The book cites the huge economic successes, the defeat of ISIS (heard much about that?), the release of numerous American hostages, the resurgence of U.S. manufacturing, the big employment gains, getting NATO nations to pay their “fair share” for defense, the improved NAFTA (still not ratified due to Democrat stonewalling) and the considerable reduction of federal regulations that gets government off your back.

The list is very long, and most of it is ignored by the partisan news media and their apoplectic clients in the Democrat Party.

Buy the book. If you’re a clear-headed conservative, you’ll love it. If you’re a confused leftist, well, you’re not going to buy the book, are you? I’ve led you to the water trough, and now it’s up to you to insert your snout. You’ll be a better person for it. Trust me.

The morning overcast is burning off now, and it’s time to go downstairs for cereal and banana. Lunch at 2 p.m. will be smoked chops, stir-fried zucchini and tiny pasta.

Did you listen to Naomi?

The blessings of Trump

I BRING THIS to you as a public service.

If you’re already a Trump fan, it will just reinforce your wise choice. If you’re not, then it will just twist your knickers! So this video is dual-purpose.

Enjoy.
