DON’T HATE ME FOR TELLING YOU THIS

Sara Cox and her children wait at the gates of U.S. Steel in Granite City to welcome President Trump.

Sara Cox and her children wait at the gates of U.S. Steel in Granite City to welcome President Trump.

[Neil Steinberg is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat – and as such feels right at home reporting for the liberal Chicago Sun-Times. Last Thursday (7/26), he was in Granite City, Illinois to watch President Trump speak to the steelworkers at the recently reopened U.S. Steel plant. While he can’t help imparting his anti-Trump bias, he has the honesty to tell his Sun-Times readers – who are as anti-Trump as he is – what he learned. Full video of the President’s speech below --JW]

Donald Trump is a charming man, and people like him.

Up in Chicago we forget that. Between the attacks on immigrants, on Democrats, on the press, and the FBI, and the Justice department … well, the list goes on and on, doesn’t it? We see the damage, to our institutions, to our social fabric, our nation’s reputation, to groups and individuals, and assume he’s a reviled figure, ripe to be driven from office.

Not true. Not down here, at U.S. Steel’s sprawling works, Trump embraces and is in turn embraced.

“The moment of a lifetime,” said millwright Earl Evans, one of about 400 workers who came in on their own time to hear the President speak. “Finally someone doing something for America.”

HALF FULL REPORT 07/27/18

have-to-askWelcome to Yes the Insanity Continues, It’s Going to Get Worse for Them but Better for Us HFR.  So let’s talk about how Democrats and their Fake Newsers are drug pushers.

First, though, let me thank Jack Kelly for his great HFR last week while I was in Spitzbergen leading a small private group there.  Thanks, Jack!

Okay… the first thing to understand about Lefties today, from Democrat Congresscritters to Antifa to Miss Occasional-Whatshername, the latest 2-digit IQ Dem heartthrob, is that they are all drug addicts.  What’s the drug they’re addicted to?  Anger.  They’re anger junkies, rageaholics.

Turns out that anger addiction is a neurochemical brain disease just like addiction to opiates, alcohol, or gambling.  Google “anger addiction” and you’ll get 278,000 hits.  Here’s a good explanation of how it works in the brain from angermentor.com: Anger Addiction and Why Rage Feels So Good.

The insane levels of anger and rage reaching homicidal levels now among libtards is fomented by the anger drug pushers of CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, other such media ilk and the countless Twitter hashtags they spawn.

Just like there’s AA – Alcoholics Anonymous – for alkies, there’s RA for anger addicts: Rageaholics Anonymous.  Consider sending the link -- http://www.rageaholicsanonymous.org/ -- to folks at CNN like Jim Acosta or at MSNBC like that androgynous Madcow person, and suggest they sign up.

Okay – this HFR is really fun and really informative.  Here we go…

TRUMP AGAIN PROVES HE’S THE DEMOCRATS’ NIGHTMARE

“The United States and the European Union together count for more than 830 million citizens and more than 50 percent of the global GDP.  In other words, together, we’re more than 50 percent of trade.  If we team up, we can make our planet a better, more secure, and more prosperous place.

 

Already today, the United States and the European Union have a $1 trillion bilateral trade relationship — the largest economic relationship anywhere in the world.  We want to further strengthen this trade relationship to the benefit of all American and European citizens.

 

This is why we agreed today (7/25), first of all, to work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods.” –President Trump with EU President Juncker, White House, July 25

They must be burning whatever gallons of midnight oil they have left at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc. -- all the propaganda organs of the Democrat Party.

They’re desperately trying to figure out how to downplay the agreement Donald Trump just made with European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker, but it's not going to be easy.

This is the beginning of a massive free trade deal between Europe and the U.S. with zero tariffs outside the auto industry.  If even half of it comes true, there will be a (okay, why not?) YUUUGE growth in trade benefitting both sides of the Atlantic.  What a nightmare for the Democrats.

TRUMP’S FIVE RULES FOR RULING THE WORLD

trump-grinIt’s the middle of 2018. And after spilling several small rivers of black ink (digital and virtual) analyzing, smearing, belaboring, insulting and fact checking President Trump, the media still doesn’t understand him.

That’s not surprising. The media has been writing about America for much longer than that and has even less of a clue about how people live outside its preciously hip urban and suburban bubbles.

But there are 5 simple rules for understanding President Trump. They define how he’s lived his life until now. And what still drives him at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If you understand them, you will get what he’s doing. If you don’t, there’s always a job waiting at the New York Times.

HOW FAR WILL DEMOCRATS GO?

dems-attack-americaThere was no honeymoon for the unlikely winner of the 2016 election.

No prior president has been under investigation for 80 percent of his first two years in office, by an investigatory team that is so patently compromised by conflicts of political interest, and so unable to find collusion or wrongdoing in a sea of what is likely to turn out to be FBI, CIA, and Justice Department criminality in 2016.

There is no respite from the war against Trump. The NFL, the NBA, late-night comedy shows, cable news, sitcoms, Hollywood movies, books, and music have all found ways to turn their genres into anti-Trump theater.

There is no respite; there is no refuge—not the Super Bowl, not the Emmys, not the Grammys, not the Oscars. Almost every aspect of American culture has been weaponized to delegitimize Trump.

What is the cause of all this hate, furor, and sheer mania?  And what’s to stop it from getting worse?

AN OPEN LETTER TO MR. BRENNAN

Obama and his CIA Director John Brennan

Obama and his CIA Director John Brennan

Dear Mr. Brennan,

I understand that you are a political opponent of the current President of the United States. I understand that you are an American citizen, and you have the right to freedom of speech. I encourage you to utilize that right. I encourage you to speak your mind. I encourage you, as I do all Americans, to be heard.

I implore you, however to cease and desist from continuing to attempt to portray yourself in the public media as some sort of impartial critic concerned only with the fate of the republic. I beg you to stop attempting to portray yourself as some sort of wise, all-knowing intelligence professional with deep knowledge of national security issues and no political inclinations whatsoever.

None of this is true.

You were never a spy. You were never a case officer. You never ran operations or recruited sources or worked the streets abroad. You have no idea whatsoever of the true nature of the business of human intelligence. You have never been in harm's way. You have never heard a shot fired in anger.

SUPPORTING IRANIAN VOICES

Protestors for regime change confronting police, Tehran, June 25, 2018

Protestors for regime change confronting police, Tehran, June 25, 2018

[This is the full text of the speech by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley, California last Sunday, July 22.  It is an inspiring call for regime change in the Islamofascist Mullahcracy of Iran and deserves to be read entire. –JW]

Thanks for the kind introduction and thanks for hosting me here at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library. It’s a very special place and an honor for me to be here.

We have many members of the Iranian American community with us this evening. This is just a fraction of the quarter million Iranian Americans in Southern California alone. We have many Iranian American guests from all across the United States here as well. Thank you.

I recognize the Iranian diaspora is diverse. There are many faith backgrounds and many different walks of life, and that’s a good thing, and not all Iranian Americans see things the same way. But I think everyone can agree that the regime in Iran has been a nightmare for the Iranian people, and it is important that your unity on that point is not diminished by differences elsewhere.

To our Iranian Americans and our Iranian American friends, tonight I want to tell you that the Trump administration dreams the same dreams for the people of Iran as you do, and through our labors and God’s providence that day will come true.

THE SECOND BEST OPTION FOR DESTRUCTIVE BUREAUCRACIES

bureaucracy-status-quoThere are a number of international organizations and U.S. government agencies that should be abolished because they both destroy wealth and liberty.

Officials of the Trump administration understand the problem but do not have the ability to take the corrective measures because of the lack of political will in Congress to do the right thing.

Given the situation, the administration has opted for the second-best choice, and that is to select highly experienced and qualified individuals to lead reform efforts in the organizations and agencies they have been appointed to head.

Here are four examples – and note, all four of the President’s appointees are women.
