Necessary

Does President-elect DJT have the gravitas to do what is necessary?  Without compromising the Constitution?

AH! There’s the rub.

No extra-constitutional executive orders.  No bulls-in-china-shops (in spite of the fact he has no verbal filters!)

Of course, as with GWB, it won’t matter what he does or says to some people, just because he’s (in their view) the wrong person.

Bayou Renaissance Man has a take on the recent (and ongoing) unpleasantness (in part):

Black Lives Matter, the ND Pipeline and the anti-Trump protests: same old, same old

I’m astonished that no-one has yet pointed out, publicly and loudly, that the organized anti-Trump protests following his victory in last Tuesday’s election are as organized, and as manipulative, as most of the other protests we’ve seen all year long.  It’s the same professional agitators, going from issue to issue and from state to state, seizing on any popular idea and transforming it into a lever to undermine our nation, our democracy and our constitution.Consider:

  • The Black Lives Matter protests were very clearly organized.  Numerous police forces admitted or asserted that ‘outsiders‘ came into town to make trouble, then moved on to the next protest.  They were funded by the same source that bankrolled the Ferguson riots ‘protests’.
  • As soon as the North Dakota pipeline protests geared up a few months ago, what happened to the BLM protests?  Suddenly there was hardly a mention of them.  The reason was simple – the activists turning the pipeline protests into a violent anti-police, anti-The-Man free-for-all were often the same ones that had been behind the BLM nastiness.
  • Now that President-elect Trump is the focus, what’s happened to the pipeline protests?  All of a sudden we don’t hear Word One about them in the media . . . because those organizing them, and spearheading the violence there, are now organizing the protests and spearheading the violence in the anti-Trump protests.

I’d love to be able to examine arrest records, or attendance records, from police forces all over the country, to see how many names and how many faces cropped up at all of the above protests over the past year.  I’m willing to bet money there’ll be a lot of overlap.

One hopes Mr. Trump will find a way to cut the Gordian knot that ties all these anti-constitutional, anti-democratic, anti-American organizations and individuals together.  It’s long overdue . . . and entirely necessary, IMHO.

Peter

An interesting perspective.  Could it be that the same protesters move from protest to protest – almost as if it is their job?
(Remembering the OWS protesters and the similar folks who appear after mass shootings)
Finding a way to ‘cut the Gordian knot’ (as Peter puts it) + my .02…
CONSTITUTIONALLY!
And, of course, recognizing the other guy remains President for a while longer…

  1. Given the persistent trail of evidence that they’ve received payment via answering Craigslist ads, and the literal train of dozens of buses, and their own statements to that effect … then yes, OF COURSE they’re paid to protest. How is this still in question?

  2. You have hired protesters and full time malcontents. I believe they’re called jerks, and they need to be kicked.

    Real protest I can respect. Heavy gauge whining requires headbutt logic.
