TRUMP: AN UNCONVENTIONAL FIGHTING PRESIDENT!!!

Unconventional describes Trump from the beginning. Trump is a real estate tycoon with TV celebrity status but no official political experience in running for or serving in local or state government. With his celebrity status, charismatic personality, demeanor, organizational skill, oratory skill, and personal wealth he miraculously managed to win an election and became president of the United States against all odds.

He fought the Republican establishment and won, fought the Democratic establishment and won, and now is in a battle with the establishment media and Democrats and hopes to win again in 2020.

Since almost his first day in office as president, the media along with the Democrats have tried to remove him from office and he fought back for about 2 and a half years and escaped prosecution for alleged collusion with Russia. Some of his associates like Manafort wound up in jail for illegal behavior having nothing to do with Trump personally.

Trump has been accused of many illegalities such as using campaign funds to pay off women who claimed to have had sexual relations with him, accused of allegedly extorting dirt on Biden by withholding military aid to Ukraine, obstructing justice, lying thousands of times to the public, using the presidency to enrich his personal wealth and status, and generally doing many things which are allegedly illegal and unbecoming of a president. So far, no illegalities have been proven to be serious crimes and misdemeanors with actual irrefutable evidence.

Now Trump is fighting against a frame up by an unknown whistleblower with political bias and an impeachment inquiry process heavily Democratically biased. There are serious constitutional questions being raised about the functioning of and the powers of the Executive branch versus the House of Representatives
Democrat majority during an attempted impeachment process. The constitution unfortunately doesn’t have answers to an impeachment process and there is a dearth of legal precedent to consult in how to proceed with impeachment.

How do you make the impeachment process fair to both the Executive and Legislative branch? The constitution has no firm answers so everyone, especially political pundits, are pontificating on the impeachment process by impulse not with any actual real knowledge.

Trump’s leadership style is authoritarian and he expects loyalty from his subordinates. His one weakness is that he is not very good at listening to top advisers, questioning them, reaching a consensus, and then organizing follow through with the Congress. He doesn’t always seem to trust the advice of his advisors and is especially wary of the deep state leadership and bureaucratic leadership, especially those appointed during the Obama era. Just like during his TV show, the Apprentice, he has fired or relieved many in leadership positions and has tried to install some with hopefully some loyalty to him.

Trump’s unorthodox leadership style in the presidency has made him unpopular with the establishment and the absence of civility in his rhetoric has infiltrated the media as it becomes more tabloid in style with its own dose of deceptions, fake news, severe criticism, insults, name calling, put downs, ridicule, and humiliation. As a result of this no holds bared battle with Trump the public at large no longer knows what to believe and is largely tuning off to political concerns. If you can’t trust the president or the media or the Democrats and many Republicans then who can you trust?

Trump continues to fight against the establishment by trying to secure borders, trying to withdraw military forces from abroad such as from Syria and Afghanistan, trying to create friendly relationships with Russia and North Korea, imposing tariffs and trying to cure a massive trade imbalance with nations such as China, trying to get nuclear and military behavioral concessions from Iran, trying to get other nations to pay more for United States military presence abroad, cutting corporate taxes and trying to get companies to invest more in the United States, and generally trying to regain what greatness the United States had historically.

There is no doubt that Trump is an unconventional maverick who is not going to change much while in the presidential office. Being very different is something the status quo establishment isn’t very fond of. Judging by the disarray in the Democratic candidates for president, it seems on the surface that Trump has succeeded in almost destroying the Democratic leadership single handedly.

The internet has atomized society and also the leadership of both political parties. A recurrence of the Trump celebrity phenomenon is no longer possible after the demise of establishment MASS media who historically used to play a major role in presidential success. Without a mass media whom most of the population listens to, it is virtually impossible for a relatively obscure politician to reach national prominence in the eyes of the public. Whether this media failure in propaganda control over the public is a good or bad thing is debatable but one thing is sure. Overwhelming national public consensus on one political leader is becoming almost mission impossible and that is the state of the presidency today.

How this presidential battle will end and when is a debatable question as Trump continues to wage war in his unconventional style, making politics very unconventional too in the process. Whether the Trump phenomenon is a good or bad thing in the long duration is debatable but one thing is sure. Politics will probably never be the same again.

THE INTERNET HAS DESTROYED THE MASS PROPAGANDA PRESS OR MEDIA!!!

The media no longer has a mass captive audience willing to spend a half an hour or an hour of their time on the same publication or media device because they are used to instant gratification and have short attention spans. Unless you have been taught to love reading, reading is a rather tedious task and verbosity has been and still is a fault of both writers and video commentators. In a word- boring.

Desperate to try and maintain readership the press has become a tabloid press with emotional  sensationalism, much biased opinion, and quite a bit of fake or untrue information heavily laced with a globalist ideology and what apparently passes for political correctness. Humans frankly no longer trust what they read, hear, or see so there is a credibility crisis in the elite press or media.

Many prefer to spend time on social media with friends, playing games, and often use search engines or keywords to find information which they are interested in at the moment. So brainwashing via mass media is no longer possible and humans are retreating into their own worlds on the internet.

Conclusion: Mass media is just as good as dead and the internet has killed it.

MASS MEDIA IS DEAD AND SO ARE SHARED CULTURAL TRADITIONS IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

The internet and technology opened the door to worldwide communications and made information from almost unlimited sources to become available. The long duration result was an atomized existence for most humans pursuing their own interests, wanting instant gratification, and not being brainwashed by a dominant media with just one basic cultural agenda.

More articles and books are published on a yearly basis than ever before but fewer and fewer humans are spending their time reading them. The traditional half hour or hour programs on radio and TV are fast losing their appeal as humans more and more want their information in short sound and video bytes and are quick to change channels, shows, or videos if they can’t maintain their interest.

The net result is a loss in cultural traditions and shared opinions on many things. Traditional moral values are being assaulted and immorality is on the rise. Almost nothing is sacred anymore and deviant lifestyles run rampant destroying family life and social cohesion. Trust in the leadership is at an all time low and relatively few leaders remain with impeccable reputations.

A descent into social chaos is occurring and almost no one has a solution on how to prevent the destructive forces and emerge with an effective antidote or solutions to the increasing problems of addictions to bad behavior and drugs.

The fundamental problem is a moral corruption which the left leaning academia, celebrities, media, and even deep state are trying to cure with a left wing ideology and censorship of opposing views which exacerbates the problem and doesn’t really cure the dysfunctional morality and lifestyles. Left wing propaganda not guided by reason, morality, and just legal traditions will not work in the long run and has to be enforced by coercive means and oppressive censorship.

Is there room for optimistic views about the future? Yes, smart robots and smart interactive audio visual software will eventually teach young offspring a commonly believed secular moral code and by the age of about 13 most will know what is impulsively right or wrong to do. A useful education which includes math and basic scientific principles will be taught to everyone who puts in the time and effort to learn to the best of their ability and the rest will be destined to live on welfare with free useful education available to all who want to rejoin the workforce and become contributing members of society. The amount of welfare given will be directly proportional to the amount of useful education which they have learned even if they remain unemployed.

We can have a moral nation or world where ability and effort will be rewarded and if you chose not to participate in usefully educating yourself further for free then you will exist for the rest of your life on a safety net of minimal welfare support, and probably without a family.

What is this secular moral code? In non emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

Call this social proposal a dystopian or utopian world but it is the most just social order imaginable for all practical purposes in a future world ruled by a technological elite with most of the population effectively unemployed for a lifetime.
