American Rennissaince


I'm optimistic about America's future both at home and abroad. The inauguration of President Trump will change the malaise that hung over the nation for a long time. 

Despite what Barack would have you believe, the American economy has been stagnant and depressing during his watch. It worked out well for those living in the beltway or who were the recipients of $10 trillion in deficit spending during his term in office, but most of America has felt deflated. That was reflected in the election of President Trump. Things have gone wrong and they need to be changed in so many ways. 

America's relationships with other countries will be redefined. There is a pending trade deal with the UK that will pick up any remaining hardship from BREXIT. I see that carved out in the first 60 days of the Trump presidency. Britain and the US have a traditional special relationship that Barack shat on. That's about to be repaired. It's emblematic of the massive repair job that America needs.

You don't hear much from the Islamic states bashing the USA these days. Iran doesn't want us to participate in the Syrian peace talks, but the rhetoric is dialed way back. I expect that the chatter will resume, but possibly in a far more circumspect way. Barack, the apologist has been replaced by a man who is less likely to use military force than his predecessor -- but if pushed to it, will let slip Mad Dog Mattis and his team of professionals. This is not lost on the Middle Eastern kingdoms.

The Obama Years, or the ObamaNation, exemplified mediocrity. I've heard Afro-American commentators on Fox News who are concerned by "mediocre negroes". I think that they were concerned about the wrong one - except that the one they should have been worried about is half white. Be that as it may,

Times are changing, the progs are in full melt down and we will see America become great again.

I don't think that you will see President Trump go on an "American apology tour" and I think that it will be a cold day in hell before he bows to petty potentates and dictators around the world.  Progs bemoan that, but I think that it's a very good thing.

  1. Watching the cabinet he is selecting and his not "making nice" with the people who hate him anyway is beginning to make me a fan.

  2. Maybe that bust of Sir Winston Churchill that Barry sent back to the UK will reappear in the Oval Office, where it belongs. Barry sure didn't think much of our traditional allies, such as the Brits and the Israelis. He considered Cuba and Iran friendlier than those guys.

    Yes, it will be a nice change of scenery. And don't get too comfy cozy about the meltdown currently in progress on the left. They will eventually regroup and come after our freedoms from a different angle. It's what they do.

    1. I've thought about the Churchill bust too. Maybe Barack will take the MLK bust (that he replaced Churchill with) when he leaves. Barack was very friendly with communists, all of whom considered him a naif and a buffoon.

      The progs will be relentless. This is a breath of fresh air, but you're right. They won't stop until we're all slaves.

    2. This is odd. I was just talking about the Churchill bust that Barack scorned in favor of MLK.

      It seems there's a popular movement to restore the bust that the buffoon didn't like.

    3. The Kenyan felt that Great Britain treated Kenya unfairly. HOWEVER, if you speak to anyone on the street in Nairobi, they would tell you that they'd welcome a return of British rule.

  3. Finally, the time has come for us! Prayers that our new President will stay the course, and keeps the left from taking back any of their lost ground.
    What are each of us doing to make sure that happens?

  4. Less than 24 hours remaining in The ObamaNation!

    And if the progs try and pull any funny stuff at the Inauguration, I hope the streets run red with their blood....

  6. I'll watch the inaugural ceremonies just to enjoy the weeping and lamentations of the liberal lady boys. I wish we could still make mounds from the skulls of the vanquished. Place in right in front of the Capitol.

  8. Of course, I live in a fixed income bubble, but... I think America has reached that stage where our poor are overweight (not just because cheap food is generally bad for you, but because you can get ALOT of it for cheap), most poverty level households have multiple smart phones and big screen flat TVs, survival rates for many diseases are up, good quality fashionable clothing is extremely affordable, you can "rent" movies in your home for $1, the "free market" is making strides in ride sharing and vacation rentals... even our down times are not "down" as the rest of the world sees it. Sure, everything I want - organic foods, brand name shoes, going to the movies the in the theaters, a house on the left coast - is expensive, but those are luxuries.

    Obama was able to talk up the economy and make 1% growth the "new normal" because of this (and because of fake statistics like unemployment, not his fault, but he took full advantage of it)...but I can imagine America "great again" - college is just the new high school - almost everybody goes so while its dumbed down from what it was, the population is better off (even that can improve with technical "colleges" in all industries, and a blood letting of the leftist hold on it), housing has started its rebound (hopefully slow and steady), and with a shift towards deregulation manufacturing (high end) could revitalize the rust belt, the south, etc.

    The growing pains will be there, but just like the 50s and the late 80s/90s the millennials will get a taste of the fast train, get a job and forget about who is going to the bathroom where, and what halloween costume people are wearing.
