Characteristic behaviors. Compare and Contrast.

ABC seethes over Trump presidency by Don Surber – “What his state of mind was when he tweeted, no one can say.” Hyperbolic adjectives are a clue that a reporter has a problem.

“These are hot words. Seeth means “to be violently excited or agitated.”

What evidence of seething do they have? Did he throw an ashtray at his husband for being caught cheating?

Tirade means “a long angry speech, usually of a censorious or denunciatory nature; a diatribe.”

Trump was not speaking. I suppose colloquially we can say that of a string of tweets, but where is the anger or denunciation?

His was not a diatribe but rather a statement of facts.

Fake News tries to portray him as an out-of-control nut, casting every tweet in the worst possible manner.

No insane person would get to where he is.

Trump’s excellent letter to Kim by Paul Mirengoff – “Trump’s letter to Kim is a fine piece of one-upsmanship, but it’s more than just that.” contrast reality to media headlines.

Raging leftist spits on Chicago cops as they hold pro-police rally. Is this part of a disturbing pattern? by Frieda Powers – “During a pro-police march on City Hall, demonstrators displayed their vulgar and unhinged reactions as one woman literally spit on Chicago police officers.”

“Pearl-clutching liberals feign shock and horror over President Donald Trump referring to brutal MS-13 gang members as “animals,” but then resort to vulgar outbursts at anything even remotely conservative.

Here’s The NRA Video Calling For ‘Common Sense Media Control’ That’s Causing A Stir by James Barrett – “many sounding the alarm over it either failed to watch the whole video or failed to get the point.”

“Noir begins by underscoring the role fame plays in inspiring mass shootings (video below). “Can anyone tell me the last time a mass school shooter left a manifesto, a comment on social media, or a video where they said they were inspired to commit their atrocity because of a firearm?” he asks. … as much as the media love to pivot the conversation after a mass school shooting to gun control, the pen is still mightier than the sword.

“These kids aren’t being inspired by inert hunk of plastic and metal lying on a table,” he continues. “They’re inspired by the infamous glory of past shooters, who they relate to. And no entity on the planet does a better job, whether directly or indirectly, of glorifying these killers and thereby providing the inspiration for the next one.”

Trump cracks his whip: Now North Korea wants to talk by Thomas Lifson – “you don’t play chicken with Donald Trump

“Trump validated his earlier statements that while he prefers negotiations, if necessary, he will take action to accomplish his goals (i.e., destroy the North Korean facilities) in the event that negotiations don’t work.

His many, highly vocal, TDS-suffering critics – the ones who claim he is “insane,” impetuous, and “dangerous” and will “blunder into nuclear war” – turn out to be his unwilling allies in the effort to make the North Korans believe that his threats are real.

It was no coincidence that yesterday, the House of Representative passed legislation authorizing a new generation of tactical nuclear weapons launched from submarines – with the support of 131 Democrats. But the TDS gang was right there, doing its part to scare North Korea and China

From the standpoint of domestic politics, Democrats stepped up yesterday to cover their own faces with egg.

There will be more twists and turns, but President Trump’s perceived willingness to use military force if talks fail is his Trump Card. Yes, he is breaking the norms of diplomacy – the norms that have gotten North Korea to the brink of a nuclear arsenal that can be delivered to our shores. Those who mock his willingness to change the game do so at their own peril.

How to Create a Cooperative and Mutually Beneficial Environment, Even When Dealing With People Who are Uncooperative and Sneaky by Ace of Spades –

“I don’t like social justice mobbing. Or boycotts. Or the rest of the coercions — rather than persuasions — that are currently the default method of political “argumentation” in this country in Current Year.

But: The way to stop this regime is to inflict the same tactics on our enemies (and yes, I think “enemies” is an apt term at this point) until they stop using those tactics against us.

There is a famous study — look it up — about how to push noncooperative opponents into behaving cooperatively, how to force them to start acting in a fair way instead of a self-serving, aggressive, hostile way.

Spare me your crocodile tears about the new NFL Anthem rule by Jazz Shaw – “This has long since passed the point of being merely tiresome.”

The Great German Meltdown by Victor Davis Hanson – “Every 20 to 50 years in Germany, things start unraveling.”

“In a perfect world, Germany would address its frustrations through introspection. After all, no one forced Berlin to take in over a million problematic refugees from the Middle East. No one forced it to export goods on easy credit to leveraged buyers who visibly lived far above their means. No one forced it to renege on its NATO defense promises and responsibilities. No one forced it to have a long and catastrophic history with the Jewish people. And no one forces it to expect perpetual U.S. military protection while continually setting record trade surpluses.

Despite the long postwar history of U.S.-German friendship, and despite Germany’s financial and economic power, the country is becoming psychologically isolated, if not unhinged. While Germans broadcast their anti-Americanism, they seem oblivious that Americans may likewise be tiring of German petulance.

If we are entering yet another historical period of dangerous German resentment, the ensuing result will bode ill for everyone involved.

James Clapper deceives again by Paul Mirengoff – “In short, cracker barrel speculation entitled to no weight is masquerading as akin to intelligence. And for purely partisan purposes.” Another dissection contrasting with the empty allegation.
