Regarding Jeff Sessions

I campaigned for and voted for Donald Trump. I stand 100% behind Trump today. I support Trump because he’s a fighter. He’s a man of action. Trump prosecutes his causes, he doesn’t navel gaze. Jeff Sessions is a good man. He’s a good Washington man. He has standards of decorum. Standards I admire. Trump has no standards of decorum. But I voted for Trump because history has made decorum a liability, even a vice. Read more →

First 13er President: A Gen X Independence Day

“As they reach their turn for national leadership, 13ers will produce no-nonsense winners who will excel at cunning, flexibility, and deft timing.” —Neil Howe and William Strauss, 13th Gen: Abort, Retry, Ignore, Fail? I’ve written before that 2016 was the first Gen X Election. And that Donald Trump would be the first Gen X president. Not because he’s an Xer, but because he personifies our coming-of-age view of the world. Read more →

Greatest 4th of July! WrestlemaniaCNNTakeDown! (Video)

President Trump makes everything better. Everything. And this video, which he just tweeted, made this 4th of the July the best since 1776. (Click twice to get play this video) #FraudNewsCNN #FNN pic.twitter.com/WYUnHjjUjg — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2017 The left and CNN will, of course, be outraged.

I disavow every Republican who disavowed Trump’s tweets

When Reagan was president, we wanted him to hit back harder on the press. We wanted him to put Sam Donaldson in his place. We wanted him to call out the fake news. [caption id=“attachment_22208” align=“aligncenter” width=“750”]2/5/1981 President Reagan during an interview with Sam Donaldson of ABC News Leslie Stahl of CBS News and Judith Woodruff of NBC News with James Brady at the Cross Hall White House Library[/caption] But Reagan didn’t.

When the Russian Narrative Broke

When did the narrative break? Was it the assassination attempt on GOP Congressmen? Was it Comey’s admission that Trump was never under investigation? Was it Kathy Griffin’s grim ISIS imitation? Was it Trump’s 5-0 winning streak in special elections? Like the ageless question of how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie-Roll center of a Tootsie-Pop, the world may never know. Never know just when the Russian narrative broke. Read more →

Ted Cruz: Mensch!

If you read my blog, you know I’ve had differences with Senator Ted Cruz. But the Senator has stepped up. Bigly! Only a gentleman would do what Cruz just did with his El Chapo bill. Remember the GOP race? Cruz and Trump went at each other like nobody’s business. Wives and all. While Cruz couldn’t bring himself to endorse Trump at the convention, Ted has stepped up a lot since the election. Read more →

Trump Launched 59 Cruise Missiles at Leftist Narratives

No child of God should ever suffer such horror. —President Donald J. Trump The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. That’s another way of saying the pen is mightier than the sword. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. Tonight, President Trump blew up four narratives of the left. And he made America great again in the world. Read more →

Neediness

President Trump is teaching the world a huge lesson. That valuable lesson goes something like this: Don’t be needy. Jim Camp is a world-famous negotiation coach. Jim has led some enormous negotiations: labor disputes, huge multi-national buys, and mergers. This is is what Jim says about neediness in his book Start With No: It is absolutely imperative that you as a negotiator understand the importance of this point. You do NOT need this deal, because** to be needy is to lose control and make bad decisions**. Read more →
