The Coming Crisis

The Coming Crisis

According to a new commentary from CBS News, Donald Trump is "getting stronger".  His poll average has gone up a couple points. His popularity is not too far behind what it was when he won the election. He has no room for error electorally, but if he runs again in 2020 the current numbers indicate he would have a fighting chance of being re-elected. 

To me, and I am sure to tens of millions of Americans, this begs the question, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH AMERICA?

We have 42% of the population that is willing to accept Donald Trump as the leader of our nation. Objectively, that is an astonishing fact. The Washington Post just announced that Trump has now lied over 3000 times since taking office. 

42% of Americans do not care, at all, that their president is a serial liar. 

In Trump's main method of communication, the social media vehicle Twitter, the president of the United States repeatedly makes things up out of thin air, insults people senselessly and needlessly, exaggerates his own achievements out of all proportion, takes credit for things that were done by others, and butchers the English language on a regular basis. 

Beyond that, Donald Trump shows no indication of understanding any of the major issues facing the nation and the world. This is a man who has NEVER sat down for an interview that verifies that he has knowledge of anything pertaining to his job. If you disagree, please point me to one interview , video or print, where Trump explains policy positions in a way that exceeds regurgitating talking points. 

Donald Trump is being investigated for criminal activity across numerous areas. His campaign, his finances, his personal life, obstruction of justice. 

He has an abhorrent personality, vain, bullying, deceitful, boorish, Trump is the kind of person very few people on earth would want as a personal friend. 

What we have here is the reality that a sizable chunk of people, who we can generally categorize as the religious right, have sold their souls in their acceptance of Donald Trump, whose every behavior goes against the principles the religious right has previously claimed to adhere to and promote. But because Trump has been willing to push through policies that they like they turn the blind eye to his monumental personal failings and obvious inadequacy for the job. Perhaps most alarmingly his supporters turn the blind eye to the massive and egregious corruption in the Trump administration. 

Something like 80% of evangelical Christians support Donald Trump, and since evangelicals represent about a quarter of all Americans, the 20% of all voters who are religious right ,that will support Trump if he shoots someone in Times Square , are more than enough to determine the course of an election.

Thus the coming crisis. 

I think there is very little chance that the 55% who think Trump is an immoral moron will change their mind. There is far too much irrefutable proof of Trump's monumental personal and professional shortcomings. The "Resistance" is here to stay and will not be budged or slack off.  And the "Deplorables" have for some inexplicable reason found comfort and joy in Trump's tweets and bizarre version of presidential behavior. 

It is highly likely that Special Counsel Mueller will give a report that concludes Trump is not fit for office, either because he is a criminal or because he should be impeached for malfeasance. When that happens Trump will rally his base around the idea that he has been terribly mistreated by the "deep state" and the media, that he is an innocent and magnificent guy who is being railroaded by the haters and the jealous. The 3000 lies are immaterial to him. 

The opposition will not falter, and the deplorables will not self-examine, and I think the country is headed for an internal crisis the likes of which people alive today have never seen.

To all the #NeverTrump Republicans hoping to dump the Donald in 2020, an update:

You're not going to do it in New Hampshire.

In the past, the Granite State's "First In The Nation" primary has proved troublesome for incumbent presidents. Some have performed so poorly they either dropped out of the race (LBJ) or went on to lose the general election (George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter).  But a new poll from Suffolk University's Political Research Center finds that, for the moment, President Trump has nothing to worry about.

If the New Hampshire primary were held today, Trump would trounce the field. He beats Ohio governor and "No Labels" heartthrob John Kasich 68-23 percent, and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake by an eye-popping 72-15 percent.

(Both Kasich and Flake have made recent high-profile appearances in New Hampshire, by the way.)

My mischievous pal David Paleologos, Suffolk's polling director, also threw in the name of soon-to-be-Utah-Senator Mitt Romney. Once again, it's not even close: Trump wins, 63-28 percent.

This is welcome news at the White House. In another New Hampshire poll just two months ago, President Trump couldn't break 50 percent against these same candidates. He had a narrow 48-42 percent lead over Gov. Kasich and 49-33 over Sen. Flake, which was hardly impressive.

Now he's crushing them by 50 points.  Why this shift from "a horse race" to "Bambi vs. Godzilla?" To quote a favorite pollster cliché, his base has come home. And not just in New Hampshire.

Six months ago in the Gallup weekly tracking poll, President Trump's approval was under water by 25 points: 35-60 percent. Last week, he hit an 11-month high. And it's almost entirely thanks to the GOP.

As the data experts at FiveThirtyEight.com and others have noted, most presidents maintain overwhelming support from their own parties. Neither George W. Bush nor Obama's approval rating ever fell below 85 percent among the party faithful during their first year in office.

The same was not true for Trump. As recently as December, his approval among Republican voters was down in the 70s. But in the newest Gallup tracking poll, that support is up to 89 percent. (Among Democrats? Nine.)

Which raises a question for the John Kasichs and Bill Kristols of the nation: Exactly who are you "saving" the GOP from?

Republican voters have had two years of watching Trump as a candidate and president and husband and Twitterer and embarrassing, tantrum-throwing child and—to their credit or shame—they've decided to stick with him. It truly isTrump's party, and every other Republican is just renting space.

So unless Robert Mueller drags him out of the Oval Office by his artificially-golden locks, Trump will be on top of the ticket in 2020.

And if he heads into that election with an energized GOP base, he has a chance to win it, too.

According to the latest Real Clear Politics polling average, Trump's job approval has inched up to 43.5 percent. Add in the 3 percent or so "don't ask, won't tell" Trump supporters and suddenly you're back around the 46 percent support Trump had when he beat Hillary Clinton.

Being above 50 percent would be better (obviously) but that's just not going to happen with this president. Trump needs a re-play of 2016. 

And what are the Democrats giving him? Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Oh, and Nancy Pelosi just promised "I'm not going anywhere," while Congressional Democrats are debating what they want to do first once they take back the House: Impeach Donald Trump, or pass new gun control laws?

By every historic measure, President Trump should be the Walking Dead of American politics. But put him up against a Democratic campaign of "Pelosi, Pocahontas and Impeachment!" and he may walk right back into the White House.

The country is in a deep crisis. 

By the way, it was announced this morning that wages increased 2.6% in April, which I believe is a little less than the wage increase percentage a year ago. This begs the question, what was done with the savings companies gained from the corporate tax cut?  We were told that this windfall would be put back into, among other things, wage increases for workers.  This does not appear to be happening, despite the anecdotal bs the Trump apologists spread.

The monthly report says that wages went up 2.6%. That is less than a year ago before the tax cuts. The companies are giving the windfall to their shareholders and managers.

To me, and I am sure to tens of millions of Americans, this begs the question, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH AMERICA?  
Nothing is wrong with America...the problem resides within people who think like you. Half of the nation decided we needed to go in another direction during the last election. For some reason, many on the left cannot accept or deal with it.

42% of Americans do not care, at all, that their president is a serial liar.
What's conveniently forgotten is all the lies of the Clinton's and Obama over the years. Trump is an amateur compared to those clowns. Trump has an answer for everything the left throws at him, and he is constantly thinking at least two steps ahead of them 

And what are the Democrats giving him? Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Oh, and Nancy Pelosi just promised "I'm not going anywhere," while Congressional Democrats are debating what they want to do first once they take back the House: Impeach Donald Trump, or pass new gun control laws?

The Dims are doing nothing to win back the hearts and minds of the people, which they have forgotten about in their diabolical attempt to overturn the election. They most likely will not win back Congress either. The people are getting tired of this fake and tainted Mueller investigation.

Including Clinton how many Obama campaign or administration officials were ever indicted for malfeasance in office? Here is a hint. It is less than one. Trump already cannot say that. Zero Obama campaign or administration officials have ever been indicted for crimes in office. Some federal correctional facility will need to add a new wing to house all the trumpsters once all of their cases are tried. "Lock Them Up!"...

Mistaking your personal emotional distress for that of the rest of the country's is a mistake. There is no crisis for the majority of us as we except election results no matter how disappointing.

Find a viable candidate in 2020 and vote for them.

Maybe in the meantime find a hobby, make new friends or read a book. Find something constructive to do instead of wasting your time with horde of rabid chihuahuas. It's just not healthy.

BF, the majority of Americans agree with me and I am very confident Trump will lose, not only in 2020 but this year too. 

That doesn't change the fact that he shouldn't even be there. Our history books will now contain the acknowledgement that the country was led by someone who lied to the public thousands of times.  A thousand years from now this will be how our Trump era is characterized. 'The people didnt care enough to keep out  the most immoral man in political history from the highest office.'

The "resistance" will never stop, and will likely grow more vocal and obvious.

The idea that we could still have years more to go through this is nauseating.

Lol, one wonders if you really believe the vitriolic narrative you shovel here each day John.    Here, I’ll help you with a more honest analysis.

Obama’s approval rating hovered around 50%, plus or minus a few percentage points, for his entire presidency and therefore was not appreciably  different than Trump has been so far.    And this after Obama had the advantage of the mass media slathered praise on him non stop and while they’ve alternately bagged on Trump endlessly..

So the point you are attempting make here is moot at best and completely disingenuous at worst.    Perhaps you could use some money to take a current events class because it appears you aren’t keeping up

This will create a great crisis for this country in the near futire

Trump, tweets and porn stars aside, has been an ordinary President, whose made no dramatic changes to our governing process. 

It's the left wing and it's obsessive compulsion to overturn the results  last election by any means that are the true danger to the future of this country.  A subpoena by Mueller, an inferior member of the executive branch employee,  predicated on determining Trump's  state of mind when Trump exercised his constitutional powers, would be the truly revolutionary move that would cause a constitutional crises. 

The nutters better aside their obsessive hatred and realize soon and realize the Presidency is not Trump and vice versa. Mueller appears on the recipe of some truly radical acts that will have longstanding implications on our Constitution.  Congress is the check on the Presidency, not an unelected partisan warrior who wants to control the executive branch without being elected President.

Trump is destroying the public's faith in not only the government, but also in each other. He was CLEARLY not qualified to be president of the United States. Leaving aside his monumental personal character flaws, cheating, fraud, pathological lying, narcissism, he did not know anything about the issues facing the country, and by all appearances still doesn't. If you asked him right now to explain in some detail the situation in the middle east, in Korea, in the US defense dept., in welfare reform or health care, he could not do any of it. 

You know that, and you know he is a piece of shit as a human being, and still you support him. That is why the crisis is just about at hand.

There is no crisis. We have a mid-term election coming up. The only crisis is that both parties have fractured. The alt-right is currently running the GOP and the progressives are fighting the DNC for control. Most of us are caught in the middle. If the DNC can coalesce around a inclusive message before the mid-terms and pick a good 2020 candidate without in-fighting the GOP will have to do the same to stay relevant.

The crisis is the presidency of Donald Trump.  He is going to be impeached and is going to be impugned by the special counsel. His lying has gotten to the point, and the subservience of his followers has gotten to the point that there will be civil trouble when Trump is brought to justice. 

I have to laugh at people who think that this will all die down and trump will be accepted as MAGA by the majority. That is never going to happen. 

How do you condone this clown's daily behavior?

He was asked today about his open lying about Stormy Daniels. Besides saying "excuse me" (interrupting) to the reporter 5 or 6 times he changed the subject to Korea. 

When the president is allowed to lie to the people as often as Trump does, there will always be constant trouble. Things are not going to get "better".

I don't.

It's a statistical fact that conservatives are a minority. The trick is getting the majority to the polls. I was told by more than one person during 2016 that the Dems didn't want, or need, my vote. Continue with that attitude and things won't get better.

Indeed. The vitriol spewing from both fringes is neither an accurate depiction of our comparatively easy lives nor an accurate predictor of the imminent collapse of our system due to the shenanigans of those on the 'other' side. We do have a leadership vacuum and as long as politicians pander to their respective bases , the current dysfunction will continue. I don't believe anything coming from inside the beltway, but have trust in our system of government and believe it will eventually right itself. How can it be worse than the condition we see right now? (now I've gone and jinxed it)  In totality, we live a pretty darn comfortable existence. But I could be wrong.

Point taken, and I agree with your conclusions. It starts at the precinct level and oozes up from there. When I mention leadership, I long for the candidate who states his/her opinion knowing it will not appeal to half the electorate (given our R vs. D myopia), but is confident enough in their convictions to stand by them. Ideology will always a part of the equation, but ideologues morph into demagogues with rationality and compromise the losers. (or is it loosers now)

And we could sure use dose of eloquence and deportment in the whole process...add those who cover it and opine about it.

To me, and I am sure to tens of millions of Americans, this begs the question, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH AMERICA?

Well, for one thing, the country hasn't gone completely to Hell like everyone on the Left so breathlessly predicted. 

Contrary to predictions, we are not at nuclear war, people of color are not being rounded up and herded into concentration camps, the country's media outlets have not been commandeered for propaganda dissemination, and the country has not been sold to Russia. Meanwhile, he actually did sign a tax-cut bill into law, unemployment remains in decline, he seems to have responded effectively to ISIS and to Syrian chemical weapons attacks, and Trump may be on the verge of compelling an end to the 70 year war in Korea. (Those are all good things)

So America is looking around and realizing that things are not nearly as bad as they were led to believe they would be. In fact, the country in general is doing pretty well. Here's a good read:

Trump’s first year: truth gets lost in hysteria


42% of Americans do not care, at all, that their president is a serial liar.

Lying about the electorate doesn't help your cause. People do care about Trump's personality shortcomings. But in November 2016, they had to choose between Hillary Clinton and a party that had not been improving working class lives or Trump, who seemed to care a great deal about that kind of thing. They weren't running for Nice Guy in Chief.

It is highly likely that Special Counsel Mueller will give a report that concludes Trump is not fit for office, either because he is a criminal or because he should be impeached for malfeasance. When that happens Trump will rally his base around the idea that he has been terribly mistreated by the "deep state" and the media

Who wouldn't? The people pushing for his lynching have WAY overplayed their hand. They have made him out to be the greatest criminal in the history of American politics. How many times has Watergate been invoked as the standard far exceeded by Trump's epic corruption (alleged)? We have never seen hype like this. 

And if it turns out to be 100% nothing? The Left and its supportive media will have lost all credibility. Trump will be totally justified in ripping the Left and the media everywhere he goes. 

Many on the Right have been warning about this from the beginning. Some Democrats have even been savvy enough to pay attention. Notice that you don't hear the hysterical cries for impeachment from the Democratic leadership (like Pelosi) and they have tried to warn their junior members against it as well. The real harm is being done by CNN, MSNBC, and the Adam Schiff's of the world.
