The Trump Press Conference of February 16th: A world watching and learning what a tough American looks like

How big was the noon day press conference with President Trump announcing his new labor secretary and answering questions about Michael Flynn, the Russians, Iran, Fake News and the state of his White House? Well, I am writing this from the United Kingdom and I can report that it was carried live for the entire duration and the faces of Europe melted off in horror.  It was just wonderful.  In fact, it was another game changing press conference that altered the way presidents act toward the media in the future. It was a new standard of unprecedented aggressiveness and confidence that pushed back against a global media that had been ankle biting Trump constantly over the last couple of weeks fully expecting the president to do nothing but take it. The media, as a whole had been caught poking the dog too many times and now it had finally turned around and bit them in ways they never expected.

The honestly was refreshing. Obama administration left overs from the intelligence community had been spying on Donald Trump and his people then leaked news about Michael Flynn to the press in a highly illegal endeavor in order to utterly destroy the new administration.  The action was vicious, so they had what has been coming.  Trump had every right to do what he did and hold such an unusual press conference.  He had every right to stick it to the media.  Who did they think they were to lash out at him and not get it back?  That’s not what we elected Trump for.  Trump was elected to prevent a civil war, not to create one.  Trump is our offering to prevent armed conflict—or did the media already forget that?  The old way was never acceptable.

And in the wake of the press conference the media was aghast. In England it was all the talk of the day, it was on the front cover of every newspaper and served as wall to wall coverage on every channel.  In Europe, they had simply never seen anything like what the American Donald Trump had done to its media.  When Trump lacerated the BBC you would have thought that all of England was insulted—at least those progressive holdovers who didn’t understand that France was about to be overtaken by a conservative party—just as what was happening in the UK.  They were oblivious as to the lack of protocol Trump exhibited and it obviously scared the world who had learned to take it for granted that American presidents were paper tigers—and never followed up with anything.   When Trump indicated that he wasn’t going to tell the media what he was going to do to Iran, and North Korea for their recent hostile actions—the press seemed shocked that Trump had actually been thinking about it—and wasn’t waiting for some advisor to tell him what to do.  The thought that Trump wasn’t clamped to some advisors of the old world was more terrifying to them than what was actually said.

I was on a train to London watching the people reading the papers on the Friday after the press conference. It was my wife’s birthday and I had something really special planned for her and we were on our way.  The conversation on the train was curious disdain.  Many of the people riding were obviously people who supported staying with the European Union.  Some who sat quietly reading the newspapers with Trump’s image blasted on the covers digested the information quietly, perhaps they were supporters of Brexit.  But to the un-American minds of the world, they simply were shocked by Trump’s audacity which brought a smile to my face.  The impact wasn’t just in America, it was clearly a press conference that changed the world.  Normally presidents of the United States don’t command live coverage on foreign networks, but Trump had and the results had shocked everyone.

Everywhere I have gone in Europe Trump’s name has come up. People would ask me what I thought of the Yank and when they learned that I was a supporter they would shortly respond—“well, you can keep him then,” then change the subject to something more friendly.  But Trump was on their minds and he was making news in ways that most people just weren’t used to.  This was exactly why I voted for him—because honestly, I wanted to save people from the potential of armed conflict by putting someone like us in the White House who would never back down, would never yield to the media or the political machine and had a mind to utterly destroy the established order if it stood in his way.  In England the people have never had such personalities in their life, and if they ever did, they killed them during the many rebellions that had previously been crushed by the kings and the churches.  The English people who had survived were nice compliant people who didn’t like to disturb established orders.  They just simply overlooked the power-hungry and put up with them as a nuisance, so what was happening in America was simply unfathomable to them.  As a country, they have chosen a more passive aggressive course through life—so they aren’t used to people saying what they mean then acting on it.

Yet it made me proud to see President Trump fighting back the way I hoped he would all those months that I picked him to win and supported his candidacy, even when it was unpopular. Nothing against Ted Cruz and some of the other Republicans running—but it should be clear to them by now that they didn’t stand a chance in hell at standing up to these forces.  Only someone like Trump can do it—when you have your own spy agency eavesdropping on you working hand in hand with the mainstream media while hostile countries around the world tested the new president with pressure that would destroy any normal man—I always knew the game that had to be played to win, and Trump was my pick from the outset—and it’s nice to see everything coming together in my mind.   It was even better to see the reaction on foreign soil to really get a sense of the changes happening across the world as a result of Donald Trump.  Trump is pushing all these negative forces to their own collapse and that is better than any armed conflict.  What Trump is doing is the most humane way to preserve that beacon that the world looks to in America.  Even though they secretly resent America because they aren’t in the United States, most people around the world are better off because of America.  Even as foreigners in Europe snarl at American life as too fast paced and loose—they enjoy Kentucky Fried Chicken which is everywhere and the golden arches of McDonald’s.  Without American capitalism, most of the people in Europe wouldn’t have much to do but wait for some king to give them some land or a court appointment to raise their station in life.   Even on the trip to London, the people critical of Trump secretly rooted for him because he was the great underdog they dared not to be themselves, but hoped would stick his thumb in the eye of the world that suppressed them—yet they dared not admit such a thing publicly.   For their ancestors swung by the gallows for such thoughts—or were burned at the stake.  Not in America.  And especially not this American president.  Trump was something special, and I am so glad we have him—and it won’t take the world long to join me in that sentiment.

The Canterbury Cathedral: A step on the way to eternity

canterbury-4It was something I’ve wanted to see for many years because of its place at the center of western civilization. Standing for over a millennium to shape the ideology of the civilized world—to be one of the only lasting vestiges of the Roman Empire for which it was born and gave birth to the nation of England in the form we know it today—the Cathedral of Canterbury is an awesome thing to behold.  It sits atop the highest point of that little pilgrimaging town protected by law not to have any rivals holding the progress of mankind to its history it still sits perched above all else in a way that just isn’t seen in America anywhere.  In New York skyscrapers would have long overtaken such a structure, but not in Canterbury where its Cathedral is still the star of the show and will remain that way for the rest of the foreseeable future.  In many ways the Canterbury Cathedral is the very definition of America’s desire to have a separation of “Church and State” as defined by our Constitution which essentially changed the world and launched the most productive country on earth because the pent-up abilities of the human race had been stuck for over two thousand years under the weight of places like the Canterbury Cathedral and the kings who held the throne in London—which evolved directly out of the Roman Empire in Italy.canterbury6

The figure I’ve long admired was Thomas Beckett the Archbishop of Canterbury. If you’ve ever wondered why there is a piece called “bishop” in the game of chess—you’d have to understand the role they played in monarchal politics as for many centuries they were directly challenged by power-hungry kings for the right to rule the minds of mankind.  And kings often used them to acquire power and to keep them busy so not to allow the church to impose itself on the aggressions of the monarchy.  So bishops—especially archbishops, had their role in European politics that were quite spectacular from the perspective of a scholar, but a pain to the public stuck between the church and the state.  In fact, it was in Canterbury that the pilgrims which left for America and started the Holiday Thanksgiving launched—because they had enough of being stuck between the church of Canterbury and the politics of London.canterbury7

Henry the II had pushed Thomas Beckett beyond his limits and provoked four knights to seek out the big man at the Cathedral to murder him in cold blood to appease the king. The reason was that Beckett refused to allow the king to believe he was superior to the papacy.  King Henry II really didn’t mean to, because Beckett had been his friend for a long time, but his quest for power overtook him to the point of murder.  Beckett was killed right in the Cathedral which made it an interesting place to visit, I wanted to stand in the spot where the knights had spilled out his entrails and stained the floor with blood.  I felt fortunate to go through the door where the knights had come through to kill Beckett and to stand and face a murder I had read about for years.  To me it was like visiting the site of the murders of Helter Skelter—an event of such evil and propensity that to attempt to understand it, you have to see and touch the surroundings.   After all, Beckett knew they were coming to kill him and he refused to lock the door to prevent it. And for the knights to approach the Cathedral knowing what they intended to do—I had to see it for myself.canterbury8

Once Beckett had been buried at the Cathedral down in the crypt which I was also able to see, pilgrims began to flock to Canterbury to visit the tomb of the slain and beloved Archbishop. It was this action that provoked the entire novel, (poem) The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer which chronicled the many pilgrimages to Beckett’s tomb from all levels of society—and is one of my favorite works in literature.  It was Chaucer in fact that launched the age of great literature which then launched the western world.  For me it was interesting to walk the streets that Charles Dickens, Chaucer and many others had walked before to see the roots of their musings.  But there was nothing like the Cathedral to lay eyes on because of the ruckus it caused in the minds of mankind in so many ways—and to see it, and touch it was something that was for me necessary.canterbury9

As my wife and I went to visit the site it was obvious the church had long lost its power and what we were seeing was simply a ghost from the past. Canterbury is stuck in the shadow of its own history as immigration has fundamentally changed the nature of the old town into something less English and more European.  The days of great literature were gone as the minds of the inhabitants either settled into those shadows or left for their own glory leaving behind directionless ambition to study the old monuments with open notebooks only to learn nothing applicable to the modern world.  The caretakers of the Cathedral were quick to emphasize that the place was a nondenominational church now.  In 1536 the Reformation was well underway and the government turned against the papacy once and for all.  After a hundred years of that the pilgrims tired of the struggle between church and state left for North America to live as freely as they could.  From the time of Beckett’s slaughter on December 29th 1170 to the writing of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in 1389 AD to the destruction and looting of Beckett’s tomb in 1538 a very careful and pointed ache of understanding had attached itself to the human race.  The kings of England had lost their godly justification to rule and turned more toward war to keep their people busy colonizing the world with empire pride to unify their kingdom.  These forces of course would collide once and for all in America—the pilgrims who had left centuries earlier with the immigrants fleeing the king’s influence now that the Reformation had destroyed the church which built their country and people became free for the first time in all of human civilization.  It was something to walk about the Cathedral and see the tomb of Henry the IV, the Black Prince, and the spot in the crypts where Beckett had rested—along with many hundreds of others buried in that historic place haunting the modern world with a foot back in time to when human beings were still trying to invent themselves in the wake of the Romans, the Greeks, and the Minoans (Atlanteans)—The Sumerians, and whatever came before them which is likely long gone now to the eyes of history. The Canterbury Cathedral served as a testament to mankind’s history and eventual evolution so it was a place to visit that was necessary.canterbury11

Whereas the church has lost its power in Europe the effort has not led to a gain of intelligence. It can’t be helped but to notice that people are not better off without the church and its influence, but worse.  Their freedom from religion and the state has not given them boundless philosophic presence, but left them standing naked and exposed to the cosmos—and an anxiety has emerged that cannot be covered up with drunkenness or upward social mobility.  At the Cathedral, monks spent their time reading and contemplating—thinking which was the real magic of the place.  If you take away religion, the scholarship offered by the church made people better because it at least encouraged people to be smarter.  These days the shaping of minds has moved from religion to our modern media—but the imprisonment of reason is the same.  To understand it, it helps to walk an ancient cathedral and visit the tombs of the most powerful people of their day and see how small their highest aims at life really where.  And to notice how the cathedral architecture aimed to be bigger than anything human beings should build for worldly affairs—to reach up and touch the majestic of something greater.  But they missed the point, and not all to their fault.  After all they were the first to get there and we today have the benefit of hindsight.  It is in that context that I found the Cathedral not a tomb of the dead, or place of the murdered, or even the destination of many pilgrimages over the centuries—but a step on the way to a heaven that isn’t so much “out there,” but much more personal.  It is certainly a place worth seeing, especially to those who love books and scholarship and the zeal to be greater than our terrestrial surroundings.canterbury5

The New Rebel Fashion: Joy Villa wears Donald Trump dress to the 2017 Grammy ceremony

It took a lot of guts for Joy Villa to show up at the Grammy’s dressed in this fabulous evening wear.  Talk about fashion.  I’m sure the faces of the liberal left of Hollywood melted off.  But hey, for years those American insurgents showed up at these award shows in Che shirts and celebrated Mao openly.  And at parties before the drugs and the orgies, they toasted to Fidel Castro.  So they have it coming—Donald Trump is the new rebel fashion and they have to face the fact that their sun has set and Trump is the new fashion for the rebellious creative types.  And they better get used to it.

Trump Gets an A+: Entertaining Prime Minister Abe the right way

This is what negotiations look like. I have wanted to see this for years and I watched most of the day with all the wonders that my new iPhone 7 could provide.  Let me just say that the iPhone 7 Plus is a fantastic device.  It literally gives me the world in the palm of my hand better than anything ever has.  I’m extremely impressed with it.  Anyway, because of it, I was able to watch my president wine and dine the Japanese Prime Minister Abe nearly all of Friday and Saturday.  After two days of observation, I gave President Trump an A+ on his accomplishments.  Whoever was worried about tearing up the TPP deal severely underestimated Donald Trump.  The man worked a magic that maybe a handful of people in the entire world understood as it was happening and it was a beautiful site.  Let me explain.

After a day of treating Prime Minister Abe and his wife to the extensive trappings of the White House with a joint press conference around 1 PM Trump used the tax payer funded quarters to rain dignity on his Japanese guests.  If the visit had ended there it would have matched the best of all previous efforts by other presidents not so gifted with Donald Trump’s other accomplishments, and the meeting would have been a success.  But Donald Trump was just getting started.  Here’s where things get interesting.

For dinner Trump didn’t hang around the White House to have a big banquette style state affair the way one might have expected—he flew in Melania who greeted them at the airport for a trip down to Mar-a-Lago—the “winter White House” as its now called for a very luxurious dinner in a much more exotic setting—which was fully owned by the President.  The symbolism of this was quite stunning.  Trump turned toward his own luxurious properties, not the tax payer funded White House to show Abe and his wife a nice weekend—which no doubt deeply impressed the Japanese Prime Minister.  One thing you can say that is stereotypically complementary about the Japanese is that they admire personal achievement and the trappings of wealth won through extremely hard work—and Trump obviously understands that after years of successful negotiations.  The best foot to stand on in negotiations isn’t fluffy exuberance exhibited on the coattails of those who came before you; it is through your own merit.  That is a huge difference.

From there the two couples sat down for dinner at Mar-a-Lago and were joined at that table by Bob Craft, the owner of the recent Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots as they were surrounded with Trump’s luxurious personal resort and many truly successful people from American industry.  After a day of Washington D.C. cold and fairly confined quarters within the few city blocks the White House sits on Trump had put Abe into the lush tropical reassurance of a warm Florida evening surrounded by competence—in the same day.  The psychological impact of this is that this American president was bigger than just the tax payer supplies provided by the people and was functioning off the merits of his own personal successes.

After retiring for the night enchanted Trump took Abe out for some golf on his private course on Saturday further driving home the point that this American president was something special and brought with him into the White House vast experience and great wealth.  After all, Abe had dinner the night before with a supermodel first lady, the winner of the latest Superbowl and the man who had just won the most shocking presidential election in American history at a resort not owned by some big donor friend—but by the president himself.  He was his own man and everything around him had been built by him.  And now Abe was out in the nice Florida sun playing golf with that same man leisurely talking about big, big things in the world from the psychological comfort of one of the best golf courses in the world.

How about all that trouble with North Korea—what to do about the currency devaluations in China, and how to apply a squeeze play on them over the South China Sea aggressions?  Take a sip of water, admire the sun on the horizon of the well tended grass of the course and line up a shot for birdie.  How about getting more Japanese investment into the “safe” lands of America as opposed to the very crowded mainland of Japan with aggressive neighbors and potential earthquakes threatening those investments back home—“how about making Japan the 51st state and we can do this all the time—just kidding.” (cough) “maybe not, let’s get to the next hole, nice shooting.”

It would be impossible for Abe to leave back to Japan with his wife without this trip to visit Trump as being one of the best things he had ever done at any point in his life. A weekend visit to the White House then Mar-a-Lago under the premise of a very successful rock star celebrity like Trump and all the trappings of success earned well before the man ever became president of the United States would have been enough.  But to walk away as friends who shared such an exuberant, and honest experience together are the kind of bonds that extend well beyond signatures on a treaty of any kind.  There was honor earned in the experience which extends well into the diplomacy that runs the world and it was simply beautiful to witness.

There are lots of tactical reasons the United States would want to earn the real friendship of Japan.  The Japanese are very hard working people and it’s always good to know such people on a friendly basis.  And along the Asian corridor which is mostly communist led countries, like Vietnam, China and North Korea all united in the region toward collectivist—and hostile aims—Japan is the most like us.  Also, a good friendship with them launches respectable relationships with Russia.  And if friendship with Russia is achieved then China is cut off in its influence to the north and North Korea loses some of its important cover—and so does Iran.  So there’s a lot going on with that simple golf trip on a Saturday afternoon at Mar-a-Lago.

But no president but Trump could have done it in the history of our republic and that makes it vastly different than the many golf trips Obama took where people were invited to play with him, but it was more out of celebrity than productivity.  With Trump, he has been there and done that and Mar-a-lago served like an exhibition of a great hunters’ trophies on the wall to prove that the man talking had been to wonderful places and done great things providing a foundation for negotiations that were well beyond the earning trust phase—which Obama never achieved with any world leader in his entire eight years, or Bush achieved in his eight years—or Clinton ever hoped at any point.  Each of those previous efforts came out looking like tax payer funded exuberance whereas Trump doesn’t even take a paycheck for this job he’s doing and Mar-a-lago was his own property, so essentially the expense was on him—at least the way it looks to a foreign dignitary.  And the world was watching closely, in every corner of it—just as I was on my wonderful iPhone 7 Plus.  It was really something to see for those with the wherewithal to examine what was happening and how different it was on the world stage this early in the 21st Century.

How to Beat a Radicalized Judiciary: Why the Ninth Circuit of Appeals judges are so incredibly stupid

I have a lot of experience with judges.  I’ve known them very personally, and I’ve been in front of them…………a lot.  I know a lot of lawyers too and I have watched over the last 25 years or so the severe degradation of the legal professions due to the declining intellect of those who would seek such occupations.  But never have I heard such sheer stupidity reflecting the destruction of the American intellect to such an extent as I did in listening to Judge Friedland, Judge Clifton and Judge Canby of the Ninth Circuit of Appeals as they considered solicitor general Noah Purcell’s argument that President Trump’s Executive Order calling for extreme vetting from seven countries seething with terrorist plots was justified.  After listing to the following oral debates, if I were President Trump I’d simply write another executive order that goes far beyond this current one and keep these guys busy in contemplation for the next year to simply wipe them out-of-the-way.  Because these guys weren’t interested in the merit of the Executive Order or the rights of the president—they were simply using case-law as a means to rewrite the intent of the Constitution which grants a president of the United States the privilege of protecting our borders from hostilities interpreted by him.

https://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/content/view.php?pk_id=0000000860

Being a judge and even an attorney of the legal profession—the way that John Adams practiced it, was a noble profession which required ceaseless reading and a yearning for the blindness of justice from the philosophic position of high ethics and personal nobility—when a person decided to become a judge, or an attorney, they were dedicating themselves toward the intelligent pursuit of scholarship for life.  The best of them would stay up all night reading briefs and case-law always yearning to understand a foundation argument to solidify a baseline philosophy of justice as understood by the architecture of a civilization’s common understandings.  That is not the quality of any of the minds arguing the immigration executive order from Donald Trump.  Not a single person on that call was what I’d consider an intelligent person which perfectly illustrates the deplorable condition of our current legal system.

Those participants were either activist judges seeking to make their mark in history by defying a president they politically disagreed with or they were just incompetent for a job of this magnitude and had become soft over time intellectually because they had spent their careers essentially unchallenged.  It is quite obvious that these judges around the country are planning to be activists that reflect the political left and see themselves not as stalwarts of justice, but as soldiers for the Ideas of Woodstock which emerged in 1969 upon a muddy field of degradation and anti-Americanism.  These are not the type of people who can sustain a republic such as what we are in the United States.

Those in our legal professions need to be the best and brightest of our young people.  They need to love the idea of justice and the role of articulated philosophy tested against other bright minds in pursuit of the purity of deductive thinking—or otherwise the Socratic principle of oratory discrimination so that the stupid are slapped away from the gates of judgment and only the best and brightest among us write the laws for which the philosophy of our nation grows.  The members of the Ninth Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco on this highly contested case are not those types of people.  They are terrestrial slugs meddling among the animal desires of mankind seething with an artificial compassion rooted in liberal activism without the merit of sustained thought to challenge their premise. They just assume by default that their method of thinking is the blind eyes of justice—only because they have closed their eyes not to the facts, but the illusion of sentiment.

If I were Trump and I heard the condition of the current Department of Justice attorneys available to argue this case since he has not yet had time to reform that corrupted arm of the law—destroyed literally by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch recently—I’d write several executive orders that essentially do much the same thing and I’d overload these courts with mindless debate for years crushing their minds with their own mundane yearning for starlit success and a gravestone that indicates they fought against Trump.  Because that’s all they really want to do—is defy Trump.  They don’t care about the intelligence reports available to Trump that they don’t have access to.  They don’t care about the covert operations that are going on in Yemen, Libya and Iraq as I write this, that might spark retaliation against our domestic interests.  They only want to be on the record in defying the president of the United States so that the judiciary can make their claim at running the country and setting the stage for a future battle in the Supreme Court over Roe v. Wade.  If they win this fight—they think—then Trump’s appointees may have second thoughts of overturning that unconstitutional ruling which was allowed by these same type of activist judges to interpret the facts to suit their liberal sentiment painted with a modern brush against the tapestry of stupidity.

What these judges really fear is work, so give them so much to discuss at such a pace that they don’t have the man-hours to possibly ever do it all, and crush them with their own mediocrity.  That’s what I would do if I were Trump.  I wouldn’t wait for these idiots to rule in your favor or even to challenge them in the Supreme Court.  I’d just overload their plate until they choke on their own inefficiencies.  Write an executive order that calls for extreme vetting for all countries so that they can’t proclaim that the issue is one of religion.  And let people complain to the courts that they’ve been inconvenienced by a radical court system that forced the issue for the security of the nation.  We’ve never said that President Trump’s Executive Order denied people entry into the United States—instead it was “extreme vetting.”  Well, that could apply to anybody.  If the courts want to make a big deal about religion, well take away that excuse and make it about everyone.  Why not, the TSA already does that with every hot woman who goes through their scanners, and white guy who looks like they won’t beat the shit out of them for trying to look like they are doing their jobs while they let a turban headed migrant with a full beard carrying a Quran marked up with “Death to America” written across its cover to walk right on by without incident because they don’t want to be blamed for being “insensitive” to a “religion.”  Make the next executive order not about the 7 most suspect countries but include all of the current caliphate countries including those of the central African nations—and let’s see where that puts us.

There are more ways to skin a cat folks, and when we are dealing with people who are this stupid, they are easy to beat.  So let them argue this case in court for the next two years.  Meanwhile, let’s load them up with so much work that they just throw up their arms and beg for retirement.  Because we don’t need people with such low intellectual ability to be making such important decisions on our behalf because it weakens the success of our republic—which stands on the foundations of law and order.  Such people are not capable of interpreting either and they need to be forced into retirement so we can appoint people of a higher intellect, because they are out there.  But they are sitting on the bench waiting for these lifetime appointments to expire who were given the job due to their political activism in the first place like that Judge Friedland joke appointed by Obama.  Give them so much work to do that they are forced to retire and give up the seat so that Trump can appoint much more sensible appointees.   Attack them at their true weaknesses—their lack of real intellect and their inherit laziness—and that is how to beat a radicalized judiciary. Load up the scales of justice so that they are forced to lift up the blindfold across their eyes so they can see that where they are standing is not in the republic of the United States, but the eroded away ideas of Oxford and the last remnants of the Roman Empire as it slowly crumbled away in modern Europe where judges like these have already destroyed that culture.  And force those judges aside so that much more intelligent legal minds can emerge and do the job that is required to sustain our sovereignty against the failures of the current world.

The Weakness of Judge James L. Robart’s Position: How to beat that bow tie wearing loser into oblivion and protect Trump’s E.O.

As we look around to the villains who have caused so much destruction to the American way of life over the last few decades the mechanisms of tyranny have certainly showed themselves publicly after Donald Trump’s inauguration.  Many of us who voted for Trump suspected the depth of the situation, but I think we are all surprised at how radical and openly anti-American they truly have been—and the case of Judge James L. Robart is a perfect example.  As an appointed U.S. District Judge from the socialist utopia of Seattle, Washington he took great pride in thumbing his nose at the civilian appointment of Donald Trump to the Executive Branch stopping the Executive Order temporarily that aggressively investigates refugees from terrorist inspired countries to prevent their border transfer like a Trojan Horse into our domestic concerns.  And to read his reasoning as objectively as possible the only determination that can be made is that he’s simply a radical left-winged loon that has a sole function protecting the open border concerns of the globalist left-leaning insurgents who have targeted the United States as the last bastion of freedom. Two sources that talk about this issue are listed below to provide some backdrop along with some specific text to explain why the Department of Justice was blocked by an appeals court preserving the Judge’s attack on Trump’s Executive Order. Then I of course outline how this case can be won since the Department of Justice wavered in its oral arguments on February 3rd.  Since they can’t figure it out on their own I tell them how to win this case in favor of Donald Trump.  (Get with the program people, these losers are easy to beat)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/seattle-judge-used-broad-power-to-halt-executive-order-1486232039

Judge James L. Robart did not have to actually rule on the legality of President Donald Trump’s executive order barring people from seven countries from entering the United States.

In granting a temporary restraining order, the judge essentially had to decide that the plaintiffs (the states of Washington and Minnesota):

  1. were likely to succeed at a later date
  2. that people in those states could suffer irreparable harm if the ban continued
  3. that blocking the President’s order was in the public interest.

In other words, he decided there was more harm letting the ban continue than there was blocking it until the full case could be heard.

He questioned Department of Justice lawyer Michelle Bennett, who was representing the Trump administration, asking, “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals from those seven countries since 9/11”?

The Sept. 11 attack was one of the rationales behind the executive order, according to the Trump administration.

“I don’t know the specific details of attacks or planned attacks,” said Bennett, who is from the DOJ’s Civil Division.

“The answer to that is none, as best I can tell,” said the judge.

“The rationale was not only 9/11,” Bennett said. “It was to protect the United States from the potential for terrorism.”

Congress gives the president wide latitude in foreign affairs, which includes granting visas.

“The court doesn’t get to look behind those determinations,” she added.

But the judge answered: “I’m also asked to look and determine if the executive order is rationally based. And rationally based, to some extent, means I have to find it grounded in fact instead of fiction.”

Temporary restraining orders generally last up to 14 days. They can be extended, but the idea is to hold a full hearing on an injunction instead. Of course, a higher court can overturn the restraining order in the meantime.

Robart has a history of saying what he thinks. He was nominated for the federal bench by President George W. Bush in 2003. He was confirmed unanimously in a 99-0 vote by the Senate in June 2004.

Before that, he was a lawyer in private practice in Seattle. He has worked with at-risk youth in that city and, before becoming a judge, Robart represented refugees from Southeast Asia.

Last year, Robart presided over a case alleging excessive force by Seattle police brought be the Obama administration’s Justice Department. During a hearing, he used FBI statistics to note that police use of deadly force in cities in the U.S. involved 41 percent of black people, despite them being only 20 percent of the population living in those cities.

Robart took a breath and said, “black lives matter.”

Essentially what all that means is that the swamp in Washington D.C. extends well beyond into every aspect of our legal system and has been corrupted there by many years of liberal instruction in our university system for which our law schools are grossly left-leaning.  So the first step is in forcing radical judges to reveal themselves as this Robart guy has, then taking action to minimize their assault against American interests.  People like this Judge Robart lunatic are like cat people who take in every stray animal on the street then wonder why they piss all over the house, and nobody wants to date them for the odor and narcosis of their bad decisions.  As well-meaning as Robart thinks he is, the ultimate meaning behind his actions is defiance toward national sovereignty with an emphasis on spreading the world’s problems to every crevice of society.  And if the first function of government is to protect the American people from threats foreign and domestic—which is what Trump has done with his Executive Order.  The actions of this judge are a hostile action taken against our Constitutional government.

As is clear from the provided text in the NPR report Judge Robart is a “black lives matters” supporter which is another extreme radical organization sponsored by communist insurgents designed to overthrow order in our cities where the minority population of only 20 percent do most of the damage involving crime, murder, and consumption of law enforcement resources.  So this Seattle judge has “change” in mind, not “order” while making a determination if Trump’s Executive Order is rooted in “fact” instead of “fiction” based on using 9/11 standards as the foundations for determining terrorist patterns of attack. The fact of the matter is that future terrorists will likely come from other places—such as the 7 scrutinized countries identified by Trump’s E.O. and not those from the past leaving strategic assessment to be based on incoming intelligence which Robart doesn’t have and could never have—so his scope of the facts are tainted negating him from even providing a judgment on the matter.

Not to tell Department of Justice lawyer Michelle Bennett how to do her job, but, seriously, Judge James L. Robart based his entire challenge on the foundations of fiction because only the Trump administration had the facts to make such determinations which created the language of the Executive Order mentioned.  Some radical loon from Seattle doesn’t get to decide national security so the argument had nothing to do with an executive order being “rationally based” as determined by the cast of Saturday Night Live for which the Judge is obviously a fan.  (He’s actually funnier)  He has simply overstepped his authority, the appeals process has shown that it is in lockstep with the radicalism of these circuit judges—making decisions on activism desires and not legal necessity.

If the Department of Justice would like me to argue the case for them I’d be happy to, and additionally would enjoy blasting the reputation of this fool Judge James L. Robart into oblivion in the process.  I’m sure Michelle can turn this situation around now that the shock of the arrogance of this ruling has been revealed and the chess moves by the political left have been witnessed-from the press conference to the way outlets like CNN ran with the story.  It is easy at this point to destroy the Robart case for his preservation of terrorist expansion from the war-torn regions of the world and onto our door steps because he’s working from a corrupted mind polluted with liberal values and talking points—like “black lives matters” rhetoric.  Such a person shouldn’t even be on any government payroll because he fails to do the first function of government—protecting the American citizens.  In order to do that you have to define America’s borders and begin from that basic foundation which leftists seek to erase allowing judges like Robart to act in such a way without detection of their true intentions.  But now that this issue has been exposed, President Trump can act accordingly in his future judicial appointments.  After all, we now know that James L. Robart was appointed by George W. Bush so over Trump’s years in office a lot of this radicalism can be undone with his future appointments.  Bush was a globalist and part of the mistakes of the past and Trump has been the answer.  Fixing these issues are part of draining the swamp—but as we can see—that process extends well beyond Washington D.C. into the target audience of the average Starbucks consumer—in Seattle, Washington where they are out of control under a socialist city council and a progressive civil war with the more rural residents of their state.  And we are just getting started.

It is important to understand that Trump’s Executive Order was not unjustified; it was just weakly protected by Michelle Bennett from the Department of Justice.  She obviously got jostled in her arguments by a bunch of radical lunatics.  If she’d like help, just call me.  I’d love to argue the beard off that fat face of a bow tie wearing bitch and disgrace him verbally to such an extent that he’d be haunted into the netherworld of the hereafter. The judge and the state did not base their opinion of the Executive Order based on the facts of the intelligence available to Donald J. Trump and that invalidates their criteria.  So get in there on Monday and give these idiots hell, because they deserve it—and then some.  Additionally, understand that you can never trust a person who wears a bow tie.  Like mustaches, bow ties indicate that something is wrong with the person wearing it—so you cannot trust their sanity. Remember that during the next oral argument.

Restoring Masculinity in the Trump White House: Taking on Arnold Schwarzenegger to save the world from itself

Forgetting about partisan politics and other modern definitions to ancient things I remember vividly a Joseph Campbell lecture I heard many years ago about the sad state of the destruction of male oriented institutions.  Campbell spoke to his fans, many who were bleeding heart liberals from California universities who were fully behind the feminist movement—yet the old mythology professor spoke about the sensitive subject anyway wondering what might happen to the United States, and Europe if masculinity was stripped away from our cultures and replaced with something which didn’t celebrate the sexes and their differences.  Many years later he would be proven right to bring up the topic, because at the core of most liberal protests and value systems in this modern age is a dire hatred of masculinity leaving men from those viewpoints to be desperately seeking meaning within themselves as they grow into maturity.  Most cultures around the world have built into their mythologies very specific roles for men and women to do together as the primary concerns of sex and food dominate our minute to minute thoughts throughout our waking hours—and those societies are successful.  For instance, you just don’t think of belly dancers from Morocco that are men.  And you would never have a male Geisha in Japan—at least not openly accepted.  That would kind of ruin the point of what their role is in those societies.  Men traditionally bring war and aggression to social tapestries whereas women softness and reassurance—and thus we have a dance which advances humankind both with procreation, respectful maturity, and philosophic advancement.  One of the worst things to have ever happened to the United States was the integration of women into male roles in a pursuit of equality which in the beds of married couples—neither really wanted.

Thankfully, masculinity is back in style with Donald Trump in the White House and what he’s doing to restore these traditional roles between the sexes may have far more impact on American culture than any enforced rule or legislation proposed.  And I am pretty sure Trump is aware of what he’s doing and why.  For instance, he picked a fight with Arnold Schwarzenegger during an annual prayer breakfast this week which book ended several contentious calls with world leaders over the phone that was being leaked to the media.  Arnold Schwarzenegger is of course an internationally recognized actor who represents the baseline activity for the world as to what “maleness” is.  So Trump being the ultimate alpha male wanted to make sure that everyone knew that the new definition of maleness is in the White House, not on the silver screen—so Trump is challenging the basic assumption of masculinity by picking on Arnold Schwarzenegger for the world to see.

In a legal setback for the Trump Administration, a federal judge in Washington State issued a temporary restraining order against President Trump’s immigration order, putting the entire program on hold, as the legal fight intensified against the President’s efforts to temporarily keep both refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim nations out of the United States.  As the judge proudly issued his challenge to Trump’s executive order you could see the body language of the man protect more than legal integrity—it was the hope that the masculinity which propelled Trump’s swift decision might be upheld by modern progressivism.  Which it won’t.

 “The state met its burden in demonstrating immediate and irreparable injury,” said Federal Judge James Robart, who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush.

In his ruling, Judge Robart said states are being harmed by the immigration restrictions.

“In addition, the States themselves are harmed by virtue of the damage that implementation of the Executive Order has inflicted upon the operations and missions of their public universities and other institutions of higher learning, as well as injury to the States’ operations, tax bases and public funds,” Judge Robart wrote.

The Judge also spelled out a series of orders to insure that federal immigration officials observe his ruling, which many expect to be appealed.  Although, those observations won’t hold a glass of water, and the immigration ban will resume—as it should.

As that story was breaking Friday February 3rd another one was emerging from the Hollywood Reporter about how Donald Trump has encouraged his staffers to “dress like a girl.”  As word spread many thousands of women put images of themselves on Twitter dressed in various important jobs mocking Trump’s old fashioned sense of femininity.  Sadly, the many angry remarks from women toward Trump’s implied dress code stem from the same anger that drove the lunatics in the recent Women’s March around the world to their activism.  While the women were protesting at that march the image of what a woman should be as defined by modern politics, many men were at home happy to be rid of such pains in their ass as many were unhappy to have such loud mouths in their lives bitching about every little thing.  Thus, this is what the liberal left has done to womanhood—turned them into perpetual chatterboxes that want to look like ugly men and complain about everything—instead of being graceful gateways into the better parts of human hood—as they have traditionally been in countless goddess motifs. Publications like The Hollywood Reporter and The Huffington Post are feeding this frenzy of image which runs counter to our biological instincts—yet Trump doesn’t back down from any of it in the least.

As the world attempted to gather itself to stand up to Donald Trump and the image of raw maleness that he represents boldly and without apology—the President met with his wife for the first time since the inauguration on the tarmac at the Palm Springs airport where Air Force One delivered him to Melania as she was dressed in a hot red dress with a skirt over the knees looking very elegant.  No human being male or female could deny that the First Lady wasn’t a stunning beauty defined by every human attribute which has decided such things for many millennia and Trump understood that just by walking with her for a weekend retreat smacked back all his critics of that particular day with his mere existence and the exasperation of his enemies followed.  Trump wasn’t just enforcing laws that needed to restore America back to its rightful place as a leader of the of the world—he was restoring masculinity to the grateful sighs of many women who have been hiding in the shadows with their 50 Shades of Grey novels bought at Wal-Mart hoping for their own version of a prince to rescue them from the feminazies of progressivism.  For them just watching Melania walk with her husband with Air Force One in the background was enough to inspire hope in a return to masculinity—where men don’t cry like babies over every little bit of spilled milk, where men defend their women as recognition that the birth of entire families comes from the beautiful gifts of our American women, and that men actually grow up with something to fight for because they want to retain the unique sentiments that only come from the approval of a woman they respect and want to sleep with in a bed.  Behind The Hollywood Reporter ranting on the topic and the feminized Washington judge are hopes that Trump’s work toward restoring masculinity to American society will fail.  But as Trump knows, as his enemies run to put on one fire burning away the liberal influence on our most basic human relationships—he starts another far away spreading their efforts far and wide until the can do nothing in response due to their sheer exhaustion but break windows in the streets and dress in black to hide their identities as they scream for communism.

When Arnold Schwarzenegger had a baby with his maid his career was over.  People, mostly males, understood immediately what that meant—the woman was a very average person and if Schwarzeneggar truly was an essence of masculinity his mistress would have been someone much more beautiful.  That’s not to say the lady didn’t have value, but to have a child with such an average women when Arnold was supposed to be the essence of masculinity—then it was clear that someone was lying about their public image.  After all Maria Shriver who used to be married to Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn’t too bad, she was attractive, a member of the Kennedy family and a television host—so she had a lot going for her.  It was an honor for her to marry someone she felt was the best pick of the male litter—Arnold Schwarzenegger—a muscleman from across the pond with great charisma, a lot of money, and a potential governor of California.  But Arnold couldn’t translate all that image into reality and his wife left him as he had sex with someone of his own personal value system and they had a child.  Schwarzenegger’s proclamation to the world was that he was just an actor and that he really suffered from many insecurities and sought the arms of his maid to reassure him of his values—which was a big letdown for many men around the world.

So Donald Trump’s calculated attack on Schwarzenegger went further than a little revenge for the movie actor not supporting him during the presidential campaign where Arnold supported the liberal John Kasich instead.  It was to attack the grip that Schwarzenegger had on the institution of maleness—and to take it back so that Hollywood didn’t define that image any more, but that it came from the Executive Branch.  And by doing that, Trump performed a brilliant move as he came out against Israeli settlements paving the way for negotiates with Palestine, and slapped sanctions on Iran for launching a missile in defiance of United Nations proclamations, or chastised Russia for incursions into Ukraine—Trump was reclaiming manhood which is a universal understanding that extends well beyond political definitions.  And from there he has plans to restore masculinity to the human race in ways that were not even possible a month ago.  Because what’s been missing from all these negotiations with world leaders has been the threat of masculinity supported by a goddess from heaven and performing as such.  Men and women at the bargaining table knows that when a woman like Melania walks with a man like Trump on an airport runway that there is power in the matchup that defies what is taught in schools.  And when Trump sits down with them to negotiate nuclear arms, or state boundaries, or even the distribution of refugees from around the world—it is masculinity which gives the edge toward victory in almost every case.  Trump took that honor away from Hollywood’s last symbol of masculinity and put it on his mantel proudly as a declaration to the world—masculinity had returned to the United States and it was coming for them.
