The Triumph of Donald Trump


Recommended Posts

indeed Vautrin, on the day the aca is repealed it's gonna be just like november 8th all over again...

 

obama will probably lose his cool and say something publically. :lol:

but in the short term democrats will flip out and go ballistic, won't they? :D

 

 

...and in so doing inflict incredible political damage on themselves. :lol:

I doubt they will go ballistic, though they will certainly be public about

the harm it very likely will cause. And if it does, that will be bad news

for the GOP in 2018.

The 100 Days That Turned America Upside Down--

Trump, promised to disrupt the country. He has —

 

"Donald Trump hasn’t just sought to destroy these bonds that united us, however tenuously; he has sought to invert them, to create a world in which each of these has been replaced by its opposite so that we can no longer tell up from down or day from night or truth from lies. Trump, using the buzzword of contemporary business, promised to disrupt the country. He has. And more.

 

His disruption has been of the epistemological and moral sort. Not for nothing is the key adjective of Trump’s new America “fake,” as in fake news, fake history, fake photos, fake charitable contributions, fake promises and fake achievements.

 

We used to be bolted to certain verities. We used to agree on the idea of truth, the verifiability of facts, even if we disagreed on what constituted each. We used to agree on the basis of morality, even when we disagreed about particulars. We knew that groping women, leering at little girls, lying, stealing, bullying, hurting people whose only crime was powerlessness — we knew these things were wrong, and we gave them our opprobrium. Our society could not have existed without this general consensus.

 

Now Donald Trump has blown the bolts off the verities that anchored us. And in doing so, he performed his inversion, elevating lies over facts and bluster over moral values. That is a lot to accomplish in 100 days — to shatter not only what made us proud Americans, but what also made us human.....

 

He showed that there were, indeed, millions of Americans for whom the flipping of sense and values took precedence over their own interests, and they will not give him up — even if, as he once famously said, he shot someone in broad daylight on Fifth Avenue.

Can there be any more damning indictment of his supporters than that, any more damning indictment of the country he rules?....

I perceive a lot of truth in what you say, mr6666, but....

 

but if american progressivism had just moderated itself a little over the past 50 or 60 years in ridiculing and denegrating judeo-christian moral standards maybe deplorable americans would not have arrived at the point where they no longer care!

 

thatz on your sides head, mr6666, and not ours. american secularists and their associated sympathizers went just a little bit to far in trashing everything that a mere 100 years ago, most americans did believe.

 

And now it is our turn to indict and demand recompense. we now reject and indict municipal civic leaders in certain american cities who do place a higher price on political correctness than the very life and limb, the actual physical well-being and safety of law-abiding american citizenry. a breaking of moral and ethical standards to which their is no moral and ethical defense for doing.

 

deplorable americans empowered trump for a return to reality and responsible governing aka sanity.

 

too many have suffered victimization at the alter of liberal political correctness...

when I am of a glad spirit I always like to listen to this...

 

 

 

Thanks for posting that.  Use to have the 8 track back in the early 70's, never got around to getting a replacement - found the selections I liked on Youtube - converted them to MP3, will burn CD later.  Percy Faith was one of the greats.

What the progressives should have done is to criticize Jud-Chris

morality for a few decades and then gradually move onto eo-

tian criticism. But nooooo, they had to do the whole thing at

one fell swoop.

There are some companies that sell new Percy Faith, Ray Conniff and similar CD's, many a combination of two albums.  Digitally remastered and all that good stuff.  Also a couple of bonus tracks.  I've got two  Faith's with Held Over, Leaving on a Jet Plane, Those Were the Days and Love Theme From Romeo and Juliet.

well my point is the constant denegration over the decades is indicative of great hostility torwards religious faith...

 

and it was coming from people who out of the other side of their mouths were preaching for tolerance...

 

yeah, tolerance for non judeo-christian thinking...but here's the thing. they never said that.

 

over the decades all I ever heard was tolerance for everyone and what they respectively believe.

 

now many americans with traditional moral compasses can plainly see that they never meant it!

 

when you say you mean something but you really don't, that's lying.

 

it was a con job to feign an air of fairness torwards those they hate and despise. reasonable moral standards and it's advocates.

 

they are the ones who associate traditional morality and religious faith with being synonymous with hate, bigotry and racism.

 

and they have the gall to talk about tolerance.

so now the haters of trump and his deplorable supporters want to indict him and us...for what?

 

opposing godless secularism? it's still a free country and what progressivism has tried so hard over the decades to stamp out of existence with the tools of political correctness and liberal judicial activism still exists! they have failed.

 

they want us to stay in our homes and out of sight and be quiet while they serve as supposedly benevolent harbingers for an aldous huxley-esque brave new world. that's what they want. how supremely tolerant of them.  :angry: ain't gonna happen.

 

they will probably get what they want anyway. when I look at today's iphone-toting millennial generation...

 

 

well sir...

 

 

I can only hope that the events described in the book of revelation come about real soon. :)

Now the Trump White House is blaming the Obama admin for giving him security clearance for their not properly investigating Michael Flynn prior to their decision to make him national security advisor. (Despite the fact that he was controversial as a conspiracy kook, everyone under the sun had seen that photo of him as a dinner guest with Putin, and the Obama admin had fired Flynn).

 

Trump, the "extreme vetting" President, didn't do so with his own national security advisor!

 

Now they're not taking the blame for their OWN decision and saying, "It's Obama's fault." Now where have I heard that before?

 

 

 

Oh, yeh! How are you, Movie Madness?

It baffles me how anyone can be so enamoured by someone who constantly displays the temperament of a four year old.  Braindead.

I doubt most progressives have a deep hostility to religion or are

even godless. They just disagree with some of the beliefs of

fundamentalists. That doesn't make them hostile to religion or

mean they are denigrating it. For a long time racism was a

traditional moral value, though no more. And tolerance is not

boundless. If someone showed no tolerance for the beliefs of

Nazis would that mean they were intolerant? I don't think so.

progressives never see judeo-christian values in positive terms. the left has been trashing traditional moral beliefs since the vietnam era...and they still are.

 

they preached tolerance for everybody and everything but when the time came to practice their own preachments their hypocrisy became clear.

 

and that is what you cannot obfuscate away, Vautrin. the american left now labels any sincere religious moral objection they doan agree with as bigotry and prejudice.

 

islamophobia, homophobia and what is next?  how about pedophobia? a bigoted fear of child molesters? :huh:

Give clear examples. Stop dancing around the subject. Show the power of your convictions and lay it on the line. Your vague accusations do nothing but paint your position as delusional or unfounded. Give clear, direct examples of how "progressives" have not seen "juedo-christian values" in "positive terms." Tell us which specific moral beliefs have been trashed to the detriment of society.
