In the two and a half years of the Trump administration, things are looking up on all fronts. I called this the Trump Effect because it is happening because of Trump and no one else. Like him or hate him, depending on which political leaning, he is going down in history as a most consequential figure. It is ironic that the media, who is hell bent on destroying this President, played an active role in helping him succeed.

- Sept. 2019


Here are just a few of the top issues where Trump is succeeding...

  • appointments to the Supreme court and numerous circuit and district court justices.
  • tax reform, a major overhaul of our tax code in 30 years.
  • energy independence. His support of coal and natural gas and the pipeline and fracking has made our nation a net export of energy.
  • Jobs and employment stats is at a record high across all demographics.
  • Wages are rising adjusted for inflation.
  • manufacturing jobs are coming back to the homeland.
  • our military is rebuilding their reserves.
  • trade deals like the USMCA renegotiated more favorable for the American workers.
  • wall street at record highs, up 56% since the election of 2016.
  • We are starting to build the wall despite opposition from the Democratic controlled House.
  • ISIS decimated.
  • Working on a new trade deal with China...
  • pulling out of the Paris Accord.
  • Ending the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by John Kerry and the Obama admin.
  • initiated talks with North Korea...
  • support Israel by moving our embassy to Jerusalem.
  • Prison incarceration reform.

The End of ISIS

Contrast with Previous Administration

One of the key to Trump’s success is the proper use of executive orders and legislation. Contrary to President Obama, who chose to use executive orders to get his way, Those orders are easily rescinded. A bill or legislation passed through Congress is much harder to get but long lasting. The ACA of President Obama is a case in point. It is one of the few accomplishments of Obama which was a terrible piece of legislation but yet survived attempts by Trump and the GOP to repeal it.

Some Repeals...

  • the Dreamer executive order DACA
  • Paris Accord
  • Iran Nuclear Deal
  • EPA attack on coal industry

The Biased Media

One of the side benefit of Trump is exposing the corrupt and biased main stream media. Some media personalities has contracted TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Here is the poster child of this real affliction.

Brian Ross of ABC miss reported a news story about Trump which caused the DOW to drop 350 points.

The New York Times has been a liberal press for a long long time. Lately, it has fallen off the deep end. It is plain for everyone to see. Shocking but true and they just don’t care anymore. They have lost all sense of objectivity when it comes to Trump and his associates. His appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the SCOTUS is case in point...


Trump is winning for America and the American people. His simple message of MAGA is helping our country get out of the economic morose of the Obama years. This is helping everyone from all economic strata. He has singlehanded raised our collective wealth. Everyone with an IRA or a 401K or a 403B has benefited. Going forward, his current trade tariff with China is going to help us be more competitive in the global economy. It is the right thing to do at this time. China is a force to be reckoned with. They have a huge population and a super power in its own right. We have no problem with China in a level playing field. The problem has been they were cheating at our expense. Trump is trying to put a stop to it. He is the only President from either party willing to take this on. That is leadership

Finally, the media has been exposed for who they really are. A bonus that came with a Trump presidency. For conservatives, this is long over due.

      John, I totally agree with you about the deficits. The problem was made worst after the mid-term election when the Democrats took majority in the House. They control the spending and Trump could not get his requested spending to revamp the military without caving to the Democrats on domestic spending...still we should not be running such high deficits when the economy is humming.

      On the Iran deal and the Paris accord, Trump was right and did the right thing. On the CAFE standards, we have improved car efficiency to the point where any more would impact safety. In order to get the high gas mileage, you would need to reduce the weight of these cars and SUVs which would make them less safe...

      A very good article.

      It makes it easy to see why those who want open borders, a one world order, or foreign nations like China who wants to supplant America as the global leader are all arrayed against him.

      He has a formidable group of opponents, who have worked diligently to convince Americans that he is an evil tyrant that has no equal, and many are duped into believing it.

      That's not to say Trump is perfect, far from it, but the actions of Congress, and the media, are far more concerning... like the effort to impeach SCJ Kavanaugh, over blatantly false accusations.

      All that done while doubling the national annual deficit during a time when the economy is expanding (it's not supposed to work that way), which is something the Republicans are supposedly against.

      What has pulling out of the Iran deal done except unleashing Iran to bomb and seize oil tankers and brazenly attack Saudi Arabia's biggest oil complex. Now there are no inspectors checking on whether Iran is developing a nuclear bomb and they have resumed development. I would hardly call that a success.

      Pulling out of the Paris climate change accords will be proven short-sighted over time. The rest of the world is moving ahead wthout us and developing new technologies to address the changing world of the future. Trump has left us dwelling in the past focusing on losing technologies like burning coal.

      Energy independence is good (although we still import a lot of crude since we don't actually use all of our sour crude and need higher quality crude from other countries. Another aspect of energy independence is energy efficiency which for some not so odd reason (like boosting oil company profits) Trump has cut back on regarding CAFE standards and other energy efficiency goals throughout the economy. We would need A LOT more oil now in 2019 if our politicans of the past didn't implement the CAFE standards after the Arab oil embargo in 1973. It has been good policy that has made cars and trucks a lot more efficient, cleaner, and less costly to operate.

      Bill O’Reilly just published a book on Trump...and it will be another beat seller, his number 15 or 16 on the NYT bestsellers list.

      This is a great book to learn about Trump, love him or hate him...

      Bill is a close friend of Trump for over 20 years, he is a best selling author of history books, and he used first hand accounts including direct interview with President Trump...and his family members...

      This will tell you more a out who Donald Trump is than anything the press digs up.

      I am a fan of Bill and his writing style. Very easy to read, and straight to the point.

      It's going to be interesting for sure Jack Lee,

      I've never thought about it in a way that goes through the stages of grief, but that makes a lot of sense. I'm looking forward to the "acceptance," part.

      Betty, thanks. I think 2020 will be a watershed moment. There are some neverTrump die hards who will not know what to do if he wins re-election. The media is going through the last stages of grief...

      The 7 stages of grief include: 1. shock and denial 2. pain and guilt 3. anger and bargaining 4. depression, reflection, loneliness 5. the upward turn 6. reconstruction and working through 7. acceptance and hope

      Another great article Jack Lee,

      I'm also glad the media has been exposed. Before now they've had the power to completely destroy people and they have done just that.

      I've never seen a President treated worse by the media, and I've never seen such disrespectful press conference reporters. I don't blame the President from ending regular press conferences.

      You are correct. Trump is being more conservative than some GOP politicians. More importantly, he is getting results.

      "Like him or hate him, depending on which political leaning, he is going down in history as a most consequential figure."

      Trump tackled issues that even Reagan failed to do, such as exposing a powerful and corrupt media establishment and protecting our borders

      He's dealing with long-range issues that seldom ever get dealt with. The growing threat of China as you mentioned, keeping nuclear weapons from despotic governments, and appointing and nominated constitutional conservatives to the courts.
