Response to Charles Krauthammer’s Call to Reinforce Guardrails against President Trump 5/20/2017

For my morning chuckle, I giggle over my local paper’s selection of 2 “conservative” columnists to counter their overwhelming left wing bias - especially against the President. Seems George Will, once conservative, now just another MSM robot is gone. That leaves Dr. Krauthammer - at least capable of rational discourse.

Three points from Krauthammer’s article jumped out at me…

1. “Republicans beginning to panic…” As a lifelong Republican, I can tell you they always panic and start shooting each other while the Democrats hang together and proselytize with one lie after another in the fine tradition of their demigod Saul Alinsky. The GOP falls for it every time with all the help they need from the robotic MSM taking its cues from totalitarians who hate the makeup of the USA.

2. “Internal maelstrom that is the mind of Donald Trump…” Psychologist Dr. Robert Ornstein once defined the childlike person as one who has equal access to his left and right brain hemispheres. He also noted our education system has made it a point to drive out childlikeness in favor of the “pure” logic of the left brain hemisphere. This Jewish scholar ended his Philadelphia speech to the APA with a quote from Jesus Christ, “Unless you become as a little child, you cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven.” Donald Trump is IMHO childlike. also fully capable of being childish at times. So, who’s perfect?

Face it, the typical pundit, politician and other “expert” is incapable of understanding the mind of a Donald Trump. He has proven himself to be a spiritual man - if not in our knowledge, religious. We are, after all, in all out spiritual warfare - even Alinsky dedicated his “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer. Progressives are the ones who defined the battlefield while most of us didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and let them walk all over us – even the Little Sisters of the Poor. Faithful Jews and Christians have an obligation to counter Alinsky and all the demons who surround his evangelists – even among church leaders who have been drawn in by the lure of money and Liberation Theology.

St, Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:12 - 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.[c] 14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?”[d]

For the most part, Trump's visionary outlook has carried him through over 500 successful, beautiful, high quality projects around the world, mainly in the USA. The nature of his developments, from high rises to golf courses, is such that they require a broad range of skills, from the creative, artisan and care taking - from the most brilliant designer, craftsman, caretaker to the mentally challenged who find pride and dignity in menial tasks. This is a far cry from the current disposable “big box” mentality we are stuck with today. If we are to reach full employment of the infinitely diverse skills and talents available and opportune because of the vision of our Founders, we must emphasize Beauty and Quality again. With that comes serious Stewardship of the environment progressives fail to grasp.

3, "Chaos.” There are two kinds of Chaos at play in our body politic -

The Chaos of the streets fostered, encouraged and paid for by the likes of George Soros and others of his ilk. Paid community organizers stir up the useful idiots in the cities and on college campuses, all hell breaks loose. This is the Chaos of the Democrats, the MSM and the dirty money of one world government types who keep us in turmoil with a new and imagined scandal every week.

The Chaos of Donald Trump is that of unexpected meetings, ideas, visions that lead to real progress across the board. Who knew the technician who left his coffee cup next to a Radar experiment to find the coffee hot? It would lead to the microwave oven we can’t get along without. Who could believe that water passed through a pulsed magnetic field would make it so efficient that plants and trees and cows and chickens grew much better on far less water, fertilizer and chemicals - It took entrepreneurs to stick with the concept until it was perfected to help feed the world and maintain its beauty.

How many talented designers and construction and facility management people just happened to meet Donald Trump and found meaningful opportunities to test their collective mettle? How many of the phony diversity of race, gender and sexual urge have produced anything of value if they relied on that societal misfeasance to build their lives on?

Donald Trump couldn't build a thing without the skilled hand of the carpenter, steelworker, landscaper, the designer and builder of fine furnishings and those who manage and tend the end product for the appreciation of all and for the glory of God. Trump has to draw on this appreciation for Beauty in everything he builds and in his surroundings. These require the attention and love of people of like mind exercising their own best talents in what they do for a living. You don't get full employment out of slipshod construction, restoration, maintenance of operations – or from the stilted minds of all too many government bureaucrats. The good ones often suffer for standing above the crowd. They too must be edified.
