Trump is Smart Like a Fox

trumpTrump is smart like a fox.  The Democrat-dominated media is all awash in the latest fundraising numbers, showing that – ever since Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, soon a Justice – Democrat fundraising has exploded.   The media miss a key point.

Yes, Amy Coney Barrett is a strict constructionist, textualist, former Scalia clerk – judicial conservative.  Yes, she will soon wear the robes of a Justice.  Yes, she will bring considerable intellectual firepower and judicial acumen to bear – reviewing Obamacare and Roe v. Wade.  Yes, the Democrat obsession with socialized medicine and abortion was triggered.

But bigger things are afoot.  Trump knows it.  First, the Republican base knows restoring the judiciary to a faithful reading of the Constitution may be Trump’s most significant and enduring legacy.  Saying “go” to Barrett’s appointment did three things.  It reminded us the next four years decide the next 40, Trump never backs down, and Trump keeps promises.

Second, it lit a stick of dynamite, bringing back to the surface two wedge issues – the failures, premium hikes, and unworkable nature of socialist Obamacare, and the morally indefensible nature of on-demand-abortion, now including at-birth – both defended by Democrats.  The fact that these two issues are now in play – although Democrats do not get it– is huge.

Understand that, on broad polling, Obamacare is favored by a small minority of Americans.  While 8.5 million signed up in 2019, many younger Americans are taking a pass – and most working Americans prefer coverage through better private insurance from their employer.

With Biden-Harris vowing to end private health insurance, pushing Americans into high-cost-low-quality care, Democrats misunderstand the American temperament.  Americans prefer higher quality, personally tailored, affordable, private insurance.  Just as they prefer to work than be locked down, they prefer their employer’s insurance coverage to Obamacare.

Likewise, the numbers on abortion are stunning.  Please read slowly:  A Harvard-Harris poll shows only eight percent of Americans favor third-trimester abortion; only six percent favor it at birth.  Put differently, 94 percent disapprove of the Democrat position.  This is significant.  See, e.g., https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/01/poll-8-americans-abortion-legal-third-trimester/.

Notably, Trump knows it.  Like President Trump, AMAC has staked out a strong position against abortion.  Most recently, AMAC supported the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” protecting children at birth, imposing consequences on those who do not.

But the bigger point is that Trump understood where Democrats would go, beat them at their own game.  He knew they would play their extreme positions – in a time when Americans were no longer willing to play along.  Americans are – on balance– not stupid or immoral.  They know Obamacare has failed; they know later term abortion is wrong.   So does Trump.

But Trump’s biggest insight – believe it or not – was on media.  He knew, appealing to their extreme base, that Democrats would jump on Barrett.  He knew she would acquit herself well in congressional hearings, was smart, poised, honorable, affable, and irrepressibly irrepressible.  In sum, she was what America needs on the High Court.  He knew the media would trumpet the hearings – and thus her acumen, decency, and innate goodness.

At the same time, he knew that this nomination – together with the constellation of issues afoot at this moment, from foreign policy and national security to border sanctity, threat of unrestrained socialism to Biden’s fragility, economic concerns to an independent judiciary- would enliven, perhaps even enrage, the Democrat media.

The result has been remarkable, and predictable.  While Democrats raised money on the Barrett nomination, something bigger is happening.  President Trump is producing billions of dollars in earned media.  In 2016, a relative unknown yet admirably defiant Trump earned roughly two billion in “earned media” – that is stories, for which he did not pay.  This cycle, the numbers are well beyond that.

Most interestingly, as Biden camps out in his basement – “poster child” for political cowardice, personal arrogance, and socialist assumptions about  indifference or naivete of the American people – Trump is on the trail, fighting, working, advancing the cause of the Constitution – and gaining earned media daily.

Trump knows that high office is earned, never given.  He knows effort is respected, along with fidelity to principle.  He is a born fighter, not interested in a pass, bye, or basement.  He set up the Barrett appointment, and advanced it as methodically as any president in modern history.  He was surefooted, his faith in the future and American people unbounded.  He is now pressing his advantage – and to good effect.

While the media mumbles and fumbles, reporting Democrat fundraising numbers, do not doubt the wider strategy.  Trump is pulling billions in earned media – and for all the right reasons, on all the right issues, for all Americans who believe in this nation.  Trump is ahead by several moves, as Biden takes America by bunny hops.  Trump is … smart like a fox.

Trump at rally yesterday “that he might fire Fauci when elected: this to chants of Fire Fauci from crowd! Trump also said now do not tell the news people. Amazes me that crowd would chant to fire Fauci ( how would they know what is right). This causes a divided nation & is not Smart as a Fox but very arrogant to people that still listen to Fauci.

The truth of what is going in within the Democrat Party, which I seldom see addressed in the media, is many in the leadership of the Democrat Party are Communist. Reading the book “You Can trust the Communists (to be Communists).pdf provides the Communists steps used since the time of Lenin to implement Communist into a country’s government. The book can be found for free online by searching the title.
 
This book reminded me about Bill Clinton’s desire to visit Russia and Russia allowed him in.
 
This book states the USSR only allowed those to visit that they believed they could use and then remember, they gave permission for Bill Clinton to visit when he was a Rhodes scholar.
 
Bernie Sanders was able to visit. People should ask, why were these two men were so infatuated with Russia.
 
Obama also has Communism in his upbringing. Remember Obama and Michelle hung Mao Christmas ornaments on the White House tree and no one made a big deal out it.
 
Nancy Pelosi’s mentor was Vivian Halinan whose far left lawyer husband defended Communists and hosted parties for the CPUSA. And then there was her Chinese chauffeur who worked for her for decades.
 
Dems are working to destroy our country by creating chaos as well as attempting to remove history & they have already taken over education.

We need to keep vigilant and be prepared for what they may promote in the near future.

Good article. I have to make a comment on the fox is smart. I am a Native American. We have a story about the fox, in fact, (2) stories. #1, The fox joined a race where the turtle won. He thought that the turtle is so slow, so he napped along the way. But the good story and true one is the when the wars were going on, on the tribes, they used the fox to delivered message. He did it. But GO TRUMP….

It should be the goal of ALL citizens and even more so political leaders to follow the letter of the constitution. Even if people have a different view on political and social issues than those of the conservative view, they need to acknowledge priority of following the constitution. The test of passing law over a conservative view is important for future rights of our people. Without, or even changing the constitution should be guarded against. That is really what these judges are called to do and paid to do. Any lawyer worth his or her salt should know this. Clearly, this fine judge sees that responsibility as #1 priority. Some laws may seem to be a good idea at the time, but as time goes on they become a burden and simply wrong for a free society. The watchful eye of judges in this position is how this is done. A very wise system when not abused.

I would like everybody to follow the Ten Commandments & this world would be better in a moment. Communism wants religion taken out of our lives and schools so they can get a little further into your head.

US has another factor that President Trump battles on a daily basis known as the DC swamp aided and funded by China and Russia and possibly other countries who view a super power based on a democrcy as a threat to their dictatorships. Those riots on the street have been rumored to be infiltrated by foreign fighters as have organizations like BLM. MSM and social media fights President Trump on daily basis!with their disinformation. . President Trump can’t do it by himself. Vote to preserve what our founding fathers gifted us.

Trump is really making fun of Covid at rally the last few times. Today, he said after Nov. 4th you will hear no more. What did he mean by comment?? And yesterday, Mark Meadows said they will not defeat the virus, but treat it with therapeutics & vaccines. Does this mean that herd immunity & vaccines are going to be the Covid19 plan if Trump wins election? lots of little hints to what ?? Also today, Trump said will take care of older people as the young people bounce right back if positive. Pray for USA to do the right thing to get back to normal.

I hope the US electorate is as smart as you are giving them credit. I started to loose faith in the intelligence of the American voter when they elected Obama the second time.

If the democrats think “in the street mass demonstrations” can overturn the elections outcome, they badly, & poorly underestimate our National Guard. ANTIFA & BLM punks, even pushing “Chick’s up front” won’t last minutes, when the Guard is let loose, the day after the Election. Maneuver & enclose & put them down.

I, We, can only hope this election results in a Red Wave carrying in enough GOP Congressmen & Senators to have support on all these issues for Americans.
Every life is precious, matters, & every baby should live. Abortion must go back to only a medical necessity, first trimester or Mother’s Life, matter. Not up to birth, or even after birth, as some radicals are calling for.
We can — Trump is — reforming health care. Get rid of obama care & the $500 million drain on Medicare it created. Come up with sensible, patient-doctor based health care, not another government bureaucratic nightmare.
Bring factories back to the USA for all medical needs, defense needs, & consumer goods. Not be dependent on China or anywhere else.
Praying for RED WAVE!

Only in the Vacuum of Collages and Universities does Socialism work. Why? Because that is the system they use to educate. at all Education levels. Yes, K thru 12 does qualify!
If you have ever been in a College or University. Once you walk on campus. It is an entirely different world. The Staff Rules! No matter what you may say or do. The Staff, and that includes the Professors and Educators licensed to educate at that institution rules! It is called an Institution for a reason? Disagree with Professor or Educator and you will be thrown out of class as a disturbance to other students. Reality. Do as I say and not as I do! or What ever you have learned up to this stage in your life goes into the garbage!

We need to return the schools to the community/county/state they serve. Rid the schools of the nea/teachers unions of any form. Fire the prof’s/instructors/teachers that teach any thing but the three “R”, true history, United States Constitution, this is for K-12. At the college level allow true critical thinking, not forced socialism thinking, when no other idea is accepted except socialism. Our school tax dollars are being wasted!

I got out of college in the mid-seventies & will proudly admit that I got a well-rounded education that prepared me to seek a job in the world. The professors at Montana college did not dwell on politics, but did beat the drum for honesty & integrity in the workplace. Sorry that you are not happy with your college days.
