The Donald promised to drain the swamp.  Don’t look now, but the task is well underway.

Yes—the swamp has begun to drain;  how else to explain the panic in both parties as they seek to determine just who they are and whom they represent?  How else to explain the disarray in long-established(?) political parties, both of which are losing their original purpose?   How else to explain the virtual collapse of ‘the establishment’ as a non-politician expands his popularity of the ‘deplorables’ who elected him? Those same folks who came out of the woodwork to topple the political establishment by electing a populist who spoke directly to them and for their dissatisfaction with politics as usual?

Mr. Trump is making good on this promise, and a few others as well.  Talk about a third-party movement; we now have a democratic party in shambles and a

Can TRUMP Drain The Swamp?

ethics in politics?


Don’t be so quick to write it off.  Republicans have a  l o n g  history of profound change, in spite of having suffered for it.  Lincoln was assassinated.  So was McKinley.  Reagan came close.  Even Kennedy, far from a hard-line Progressive, suffered the fate.  Meaningful change isn’t done on the cheap.  Or even without great cost.  Don’t cave, Donald…  And watch your back…

Obama?  Change was advertised but not delivered.  Progressivism can’t make it in this world.  Ask the Trump Brigade who stopped the Progressive onslaught, and ushered in promises of draining the swamp.

Yes—the swamp will be drained—at least some of it.  What took so long to build will take more than one man to bring down, even if necessary.  Until term limits become law, the

DONALD TRUMP: An Unusual President?

Not if you’re paying attention. President Trump is not a Republican, nor is he a Democrat, because President Trump is not a politician. He owes no allegiance to either party, because neither party elected him. Both parties’ establishments were against his presidency, and remain so. No. Mr. Trump is The President—nothing less.
President Trump is President of the people, elected by the people, just as presidents are supposed to be. What a concept! A President Of The People! Why hadn’t someone thought of this before? Answer: They did. Back in the 18th Century. Just as legislatures were supposed to do their elected duty and then go home, So was the President. Nobody said he had to be a politician; he was just supposed to be The President. Elected by the people: a President Of The People. Nobody said there had to be politicians elected for life. They were supposed to

Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as our next Secretary of Education.  This is one of the most important of the Trump nominations to date.

Our public educational system has been hampered by public-sector unions for ages past.  Unions have served the teachers rather than the students with the result that educational standards have been on the decrease for as long.  Part of the problem is that alternative systems (such as the use of charter schools not under control of unions) have been kept out of the mainstream in spite of their clear superiority.  With the confirmation of Ms. DeVos, this is about to change.  DeVos is a champion of (and substantial donor to) the charter school alternative and has been active as a private citizen in the betterment of inner-city education.

“The times they are a-changin’ .”  For the

CLIMATE CHANGE – The Saga Continues

Yes, Earth’s climate is changing (it’s getting warmer) and no, there’s no need for immediate panic. That still sums up the current state of affairs re: climate change/global warming.
The major problem comes to light through the politics of the issue. Why is it that Progressives are all in a dither about it (global warming), while Conservatives seem to play down the situation (climate change)? It turns out that the Progressives’ solution is to throw massive amounts of tax money at the problem and fatten government in the process—to stop progress while they try to figure out how to stop or even reverse the phenomenon.
Well, the fact was stated at the outset of this piece: warming is happening and man can’t control climate. Then what to do? Do we just sit and wait to be burned away? Or do we do something, even if it’s wrong or even useless?

It’s hard to keep up with what’s happening, if only because it’s happening so fast. Mr. Trump seems to be trying to do it all at once–which is what he promised, after all. But he also is continuing to keep the opposition off-balance–which is what he campaigned on, after all. The trick seems to be to let him rant on and take what he says at face value, knowing that he’s purposefully keeping the left off-balance, and wait it out as he plunges into the future. Something good is bound to come out of it, even though there will be mistakes made.

Everything can’t be done at once, but an awful lot can be started in only slightly more time. When he has a full cabinet and his advisors are in place, things will be sorted out and the opposition will still be wondering what’s happening.
