    Well, I don't know what he should do, because I think he shouldn't be there. Worse, there is no one or no strategy that I think would be effective that the base would allow, so it's pretty much a moot point. The base wanted a bull in a china shop and that's what it got.

    Deleted 4 posts on the topic of "rape rings". Doesn't really belong in a discussion of Trump domestic policy. Don't reply to this message -- contact me if you want to discuss..

    He and his press secretary can identify journalists and bloggers who aren't attack dog deviants, and reasonably objective and not fashion victims, an invite those to the press conferences and leave the likes of CNN and the Democratic Party and Republican establishment water carriers out of the loop; this would give a huge boost in visibility for some of the responsible reporters and wonks out there.

    The real problem with the MSM is they stand to lose billions in revenue from political campaigns if they can't deliver votes and consensus to the establishments of either Party, individual 'journalists' don't get the 'exclusive clubiness' and 'private puff piece opportunities and all the rest. Campaign spending is a huge cash cow for them.

    They brought it on themselves, and he happens to be right about them, and most people on all sides of the political spectrum know it. They were never ever going to be objective about him or his Presidency, and he owes them less than nothing. He has no incentive to pander to them.

    Yes. It seems contradictory, but the country needs a radical in your face Moderates Jihad. Both left and right wings have had a field day for decades ripping up the center, only to find neither can do a thing without them.

    Anything non violent is fine. And violence would be fine if he declares martial law.....till then, the left needs to chill out.

    Leakers go to jail, they broke the law and more than likely violated their oaths of office.

    But if the leak was actually doing the public a service then it must be justified and the leaker must be protected.
    Its a matter of public interest.
