Introduction

This past week was undoubtedly the best week for President Trump. In the three years since his election, he has won against the Democrats, the media and Never Trumpers.

This week, he was acquitted of the impeachment. He gave a great State of the Union speech. His approval rating reached the highest since being in office at 49%.

- Feb. 2020

Impeachment

The impeachment is finally over. It came down to a partisan vote with the one exception of Senator Mitt Romney. His one vote to convict was the worst political move in his career. He has enshrined himself as the ultimate betrayer. To think he almost became President in 2012. The irony is if he had learned from Trump, he would be. The lesson for all Republican is - the media is your enemy.

SOTUS

This speech is the best SOTUS so far. He was reporting on real results of his accomplishments. His highlights of various Americans in the gallery was great. Each had a unique story and added to his theme. America is on the mend, we are great again and we are exceptional. Our people are diverse and we are stronger for it.

The highlight for me was paying tribute to Rush Limbaugh, an America icon and a treasure. His unabashed conservatism was what lead to his success on talk radio for over 30 years.

The speech was liked by 90% of Republicans and 60% of independents and even some Democrats.

Presidential Job Approval

In the wake of his acquittal, his job approval rating reached the highest of his administration so far at 49%. This is higher than President Obama in the same 3 years following his election in 2008. That is saying a lot. This was accomplished with the constant attack by the media which has reported on Trump negatively 90% of the time.

The Losers of the Week

  • Nancy Pelosi
  • Adam Schiff
  • Jerry Nadler
  • DNC - Iowa Caucus
  • Mitt Romney
  • The Main Stream Media
  • Joe and Hunter Biden
  • Vindman brothers

The Winners

  • President Trump
  • Fox News
  • Maria Bartiromo
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • The American people

Summary

Trump had a great week. He is finally vindicated in the eyes of the American people. He survived an impeachment, an investigation into Russian collusion, a 24/7 attack by the media and the lies from the Deep State.

He came out of this stronger and more presidential in his first three years as President. He also produced the economic results that were his policies of tax reform, trade renegotiations and reduced regulations.

No wonder his approval is on the rise and the Democrats running against him are floundering.

2020 is going to be a landslide victory comparable to the Reagan re-election of 1984.

      marie, thanks for the detail comments. I would agree with you if this was a normal times in our country. As you may admit, it is not normal. It is highly abnormal for a party to reject the will of the people in a presidential election and then work to un-seat him any means possible.

      The details is not totally exposed but more will be forth coming.

      Consider this...

      What if the previous administration broke our laws and spied on the Trump campaign in 2016, using our intelligence service.

      What if they falsified evidence to get FISA warrants to surveil Trump campaign staffers.

      What if they wanted to create an "insurance policy" so that in case Trump won the election, they could use the intelligence to go after him.

      What if high ranking people in our government, including the FBI, the DOJ and the NSA and NSC all colluded to get Trump.

      And what if these same people leaked info to the media, and worked along with House members to create a false narrative of Russian collusion, and later a false narrative that Trump used coercion to get Ukraine president to investigate Joe Bidden and his son Hunter...

      What if you were President Trump? after 3 years of these shenanigans by the deep state, what would you do?

      Time will tell if I am right.

      President Trump came through the proceedings, but not cleanly, as the difference in the ayes and nays were not dramatic. From what I understand, the Democrats intend to continue investigating, but this is going to be difficult for them, as they need to focus their attention on the election campaign.

      Our dear president (and I do mean the term with respect) seems to be acting as a "sore loser" in his need to let everyone go who sided with the move for his removal. I can understand this efficacy to some degree, but what a greater man he would be if he told his "betrayers," that they have fulfilled their responsibilities in reporting what they perceived as inappropriate presidential action. "I can count on you to keep me on my toes, thank you. Now let's move forward." Rather, he's getting rid of these people from his staff--people whom he had respected and trusted. Will his new selections meet his standards of perfection when he himself takes controlling measures, rather than working with people who are human as he is? I wonder.

      Ultimately, there are no winners or losers in politics. Politics are politics. The Republican Party in the past has always favored less government and tended to please businessmen, the "white collar" folk. The Democrats, on the other hand, tended to focus on the laborers, farmers, and the poorer citizens to give them an opportunity (not a handout, which implies laziness) to bring their standards of living closer to what the middle class, a class which seems to have disappeared, had.

      People are funny. They exhibit biases, which are only preferences until uncontrolled emotion enters the picture.

      Frankly speaking, had I been in the President's shoes and wanted to know about the possible corruption of another politician, I never would have even implied wanting help from a foreign statesman; I would want my intelligent agencies to present to me any facts they may have uncovered and suggested there be a congressional hearing if enough facts had surfaced.

      Well, that's my two-cents worth, and though the President claims he dislikes people who pray because they're praying for something they know to be a lie, I will pray for him--for his health, the safety of his family, and for the wisdom in leading our country.

      T, you are right. There are many more losers like the Vindmen brothers, too numerous to mention. Jerry Nadler is another one.

      Right on Jack!

      That week could have been a satirical episode for

      “That was the week that was”

      Add the Vindman brothers to your losers of the week.

      I read this twice. I'm a contentious person, and I couldn't find a single thing anywhere with which I could disagree. You have a very very impressive way of stating things cleanly, clearly, and well, perfectly.
