Face it: He isn't even inaugurated and sworn-in yet, and he's already making a huge, positive difference. The whole attitude of the population has taken a major positive and optimistic turn.
In Chapter 10 of Culture=Religion+Politics we laid out a plan to take down the News Media, which has become more and more Culturally Marxist since Woodrow Wilson's "seduction" of the whole news media industry. The whole media is now Marxist to the core, even if most Journalists don't even know what they are. They still lie, as all Marxists do, ostensibly for the betterment of society, having been indoctrinated into becoming Useful Idiots in the service of Marxist Social Justice. And they have come to believe their own lies.
But our not-yet-inaugurated new President is already taking down the media, just as part of his own natural inclination. He doesn't need anyone's advice to do it; he's just doing it, and doing it very effectively.
One day this week, while in the lobby of one of my customers, the large screen TV was on CNN, and I saw a banner running across the bottom saying "President Elect Trump has not had one single press conference since the election!". The sound was down, but the faces of the commentators showed shock and awe; they were obviously outraged.
And his announcement that he was handing over the reigns of his businesses to his children, was given to the world through a video-taped speech, which I'm sure is available on YouTube. No called press conference for this announcement, simply because he didn't need one to get his message out, undiluted, and unedited, and un-propagandized by them.
President Elect Trump Tweets to the world, and he Tweets prodigiously. The big-shot, multi-million dollar contracted Talking Heads have been turned into nothing more than re-tweeters of Trump's original tweets. And there's nothing they can do about it.
What happened to their privileged "Access"?
Are they all still worth all the megabucks they are paid, when their ratings are about to plummet, if they aren't plummeting already?
President Elect Trump has no need of any Press Secretary. He has no need of ever holding a press conference again. He has no need of allowing correspondents to maintain facilities and or even a presence in the White House, on Air Force One, in any travel entourages, or even to allow press "credentials" to be recognized, allowing any access not available to the rest of the non-government citizenry.
Last time I looked, the press was not mentioned in Article One Section Eight of the Constitution, and so they are not any legitimate part of the federal government.
As no part of the government, the press should be made to compete for elbow-room behind the rope-lines and in the visitor's galleries with the rest of us ordinary citizens. This would not be any kind of attack on "Freedom of the Press", because they would still be perfectly free to publish and broadcast whatever they chose to publish and broadcast.
In this technological and highly communicative day and age, why should the media Marxists get any more access to power than anyone else, especially when we all know what they are?
I don't know about you, but I'm loving it.

Absolutely spot on. Almost all so-called news anchors, reporters, and the like do not report the news but report their biased "opinions" about the news. Anyone with even a modicum understanding of how propaganda techniques (as exampled by accusatory journalism) are employed to influence a viewer/reader/listener should notice what is taken place. I've known this since my service during the Vietnam War (the misreporting of the war), my attendance at University (the influence of socialist/communist leaning professors over thought), and just in general.

Exactly right. For years and years my chief worry was that not enough of us were recognizing it. But now, perhaps, more and more are waking up to it. As a vet, you might be interested in the Vietnam War page, having been there.

I started out a solid Ted Cruz supporter, until Trump won and I had no choice. However, now it seems likely that Cruz might have taken a more conventional approach, gentleman that he is. (Maybe.)
And Trump just keeps proving (to me) that what's really needed now is a Bull in the China shop, Git-R-Done, strong, decisive manager type, who will not hesitate to kick any ass that needs kicking.
I believe, and pray, that for whatever Trump may lack in Constitutional understanding he will make up for with love of America, good business/economic sense, recognition of our enemies and simple common sense.
And that he will learn (and love) the Constitution as he goes.
At the root, he may be more like all of us than anyone else in Washington DC.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Trump Phenomenon Pages
Donald Trump rose in the public estimation because he started talking about stopping the illegal invasion of foreign intruders into America, which was not only allowed, but encouraged by the Obama regime and the Democrat Party, and not stopped by the Republican Party. Untold millions were pouring across our Mexican border, for government benefits. The American government was doing this on purpose, and elements of the Catholic Church and others were supporting it. That is the single issue that put Trump at the top of all political polls and kept him there so long.
We Gotta Impeach Trump, for Being Elected, Among Other Crimes. We were Nailing Down the Coffin Lid on American Capitalism, Building True Socialist Justice and Saving the Planet, and He Stopped the Whole Process!
Satanic Unreason in Modern Liberal Thought. Satanic Unreason, Unreality and Insanity rule the Left, in philosophy, theology, material science, mathematics, politics, psychology, you name it. Is Trump instinctively above it all?
The Marxist Cloward-Pivoning of Trump's Administration. Overloading Government at every level of Marxist Organization.
Can we, in our majority, even recognize the diabolical any more? Are we all so busy and so hypnotized by the world that Satan and all his evil works are the absolute farthest things from our minds?
Trumping the Media, Trumping The Establishment, and Trumping Marxism. President Elect Trump is Trumping the System that has been running us into the ground, and he is just Trumping it "naturally".
Catholicism in America: Bringing Order to a Disordered Politics. Is Catholicism in America to be increasingly relegated to discredited "Outsider" minority status, or might it actually restore Good Social Order?
Emoticon Bigotry: the induced bigotry symptom within Emoticon Syndrome. The Educationally Induced Emoticon Syndrome project introduces Emoticon Bigotry, making the student a hopeless bigot, just like his teachers.
The Making of Emoticons: Highly "Educated" Emotional Cripples. Our Universities are not merely cranking out anti-American Marxists, but also Emoticons. Trained Emoters, as opposed to trained Thinkers.

Leftist Rioters need our empathy; law enforcement against them is a no-no. Leftist rioters and anarchists are publicly sympathized with, even at the expense of civil order, public safety and property rights.
Rush hit another home run describing all the "PC Vapors" after the last debate. The whole Media, and even Glenn Beck, got the PC Vapors and nearly feinted, trying to shield the children's ears during the debate.

Trump and Palin: Why are they considered to be the incompatible "Odd Couple"? If there's an incompatible "Odd Couple" it is the Tea Party and the Republicrat Party, not Trump and Palin, both of whom fully intend to stop exactly what we the people want stopped.
How "Trumpism" trumps pseudo-conservatism, and is not Obamunism. Trumpism: A turning away from the treacherous Republicrat Party's treason, toward the only imperfect alternative.
Cruz and Trump Rise Again, and the Elites still don't get it. The Candidate who actually recognizes the existing war and then properly prosecutes it will win all the marbles.
Trump Confounds the Republicrats and Flummoxes the Marxocrat Party's Media. Trump continues to confound the Left, including the "Bipartisan" Republicrat Party.
A prayer for President Trump, that through him we may return to justice. That the huge responsibility may humble him to his knees, bless and inspire him to lead us in a return to True Justice.
Trump v Clinton = Ignorance & Indifference v Machiavellian Evil. Choosing Trump v Clinton is easy; it's choosing amoral love of country v pure, deceitful, evil intending, flat out immorality.

A Trump Inspired Global Turning: A World Returning to Cultural Sanity. Kiss the notions of a "Post-Christian World" and a "Post-American World" goodbye. We may be seeing a Massive Global Turning Away from Imminent Global Disaster.
Trump Hitting Syrian Airbase was the Right Thing To Do. "Do the Right Thing." Advice you should have gotten from your Father, Mother, Priest, Elders, Teachers. etc. A thing is either Right or Wrong. It's not Democratic; it's Right or Wrong.
Why does Flynn need Legal Immunity? Because the Legal Process is so Corrupt. So long as the Senate, the House and Courts, Judges and Justices up and down the line are driven by Political Party Agenda and not by the Constitution or the Law as written, Truth does not matter.
Repealing Obamacare means getting the federal government completely out of it. The Political Parties will never repeal it. Repeal it Hell; Kill it, and the States and Private Sector will scramble for the business. Strike it down as flagrantly unconstitutional and illegal law.
Trump, the Freedom Caucus and the Bogus Health Care "Entitlement". The Freedom Caucus was right; but Dead Right; the rest of the Party Opposed them. Trump is making them unite, as a Party, while fracturing a unified Marxocrat Party.
Trumping The Parties: President Trump is Changing American Politics. President Trump's Deal Making is out manipulating the professional manipulators of the Washington Establishment Club, and picking apart their Political Parties.
Breaking Government "Sausage-Making" to Repeal Obamacare. Political Government Sausage Making versus plain and simple Constitutional Government is the sole problem with repealing Obamacare.

Trump Rising: "We'll fully fund Planned Parenthood if they stop Abortions." Planned Parenthood's Answer: No! We're PROUD to be committing Abortions!
Unconstitutional Obamacare, and Unconstitutional Replacementcare. If federal control of private industry is illegal, then why would any sworn-in, honest and fully conscious Congress simply replace one blatant illegality with another?
Wiretapping Trump: Why is anyone surprised? Wiretapping Trump may be among the least of all the Obamunist - Marxocrat Party crimes against the Constitution and the Citizenry of the USA.

Trump Speak: What's new in Trump's speech to Congress? Nothing whatsoever. Trump Speak is People Speak. He's been saying the exact same things from the very beginning. The Establishment, the Media and all other Globalists and Cultural Marxists were never even listening, until now.
Amnesty Schmamnesty! Feelings are feelings and the law is the law. "Feelings" and "Values" and "Who We Are" and other Freudian-Marxian tricks are not the law, and they do nothing for National Security other than to harm it.

The Inaugural aftermath shows that the Establishment still doesn't get it. Horror of horrors! Trump keeps saying what he always keeps saying! And the Marxocrats may be Marxified, but the Republicrats are just plain Stupidified.
Praying for President Trump on Inauguration Day.
Invoking the Protection of the Holy Spirit on our new President as all

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
