If you were having any doubts that the corporate left-wing mainstream media is the real opposition party and President Trump’s sworn enemy, here’s an article, more of an essay actually, published in Huffington Post, which announces its readers that after his 1st year in the White House, President Trump is winning, against all odds. The essay is signed by Earl Ofari Hutchinson and begins with:
“This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit. Trump is winning.”
Why is that, you may ask? Well, according to the author, who’s also a co-host of the Al Sharpton Show, the problem for the ‘progressives’ is that Trump really delivered on his campaign promises during his first year into office, and the left wing mainstream media views it as a bad thing. Because, after all, that’s why he was elected into office in the first place, and now he has the nerve to keep his word; that’s unheard of and deplorable to say the least.
Earl Ofari Hutchinson enumerates some of President Trump’s victories, which include the (now-debunked) Russia collusion conspiracy theory, the Republican National Committee backing Roy Moore in Alabama, the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the SCOTUS, Mick Mulvaney’s appointment to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the POTUS strong support of fossil fuels that are about to make the US energy independent, Scott Pruitt’s work at the EPA, the stock market breaking record after record (I would be more cautious about that honestly) and the passage of tax reform legislation (not there yet). However, these achievements are not even in the top three, according to Hutchinson.
The real ‘problem’ in the author’s view is that, horribile dictu, Donald Trump became the de-facto leader of the Republican Party:
“He is the point man for GOP policy and issues and, in a perverse way, the spur to get action on them,”
Another major issue with Trump is that he kept his fan base loyal and managed to rally them to support his agenda. You know, the same agenda he was put into office for. Hutchinson notes that the “overwhelming majority” of GOP voters are firmly behind the president:
“This is the voter loyalty that buys a lot of support from the GOP establishment even as they flail him or shake their head in disgust at his antics,”
Last but not least, Hutchinson thinks that Trump managed to ridicule the mainstream media, while playing them like a fiddle, by totally controlling the news cycle via tweets and things of that nature. Basically, the Donald is a master when it comes to playing the MSM in order to serve his own agenda. The author complains that:
“He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media. He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. He will continue to suck the media air out of everything that the Democrats do and try to do.”
Have no doubt, Hutchinson is a big fan of MSM’s war against Trump and his ‘America first’ agenda, and he praises the NYT’s and other liberal publications hit pieces, yet he’s aware that all these papers have lost all credibility:
“So the withering criticism of Trump in these publications is tantamount to a wolf howling in the wind,”
Even the war with the NFL described as phony, or, let me quote, the President’s “bumbling, inept, and dangerous handling of the North Korea nuclear threat,”, were finally big wins for Trump:
“this has been a win-win, and a sad one to admit,”
The fact that America is winning too shows what self-centered sellouts Democrats really are. The first step to solving a problem is admitting there’s a problem in the first place. While I get instant gratification from the Huffington Post crawling in the mud like the scum they are, I was hoping they would keep their denial going until 2020. Fortunately, most of their readers will be outraged that fool told the truth.
Whether you like Trump or not, you have to give him credit. He is playing our “we’re smarter than you” ruling class like a fine tuned fiddle, and that includes our media. They now look like they are completely unhinged and instead of being in politics should be in a home somewhere.
One Year Into Office, President Trump is Winning, and Here’s Why That’s a Bad Thing

It really appears that progressive liberals have no common sense whatsoever.
Leftists on Tuesday: “Terrorism just a way of life.”
Leftists on Monday: “Trump is president? Nooooooooooo! I’m going to scream at the sky! I refuse to believe it. I’m STILL with her! Not my president, not my president, not my president!!!!!! Waaaaaah!”
Leftism is a suicide cult…
I love it, hell, I dont even need to leave the house! I saw ANTIFA and BLM duke’n it out a few weeks ago, just stay outta the way.
We are doomed…
He’s WINNIG”! Yep, thats what is going on alright. Just like that other Guy said…”WINNING”! Just NOT Us Americans. MAGA!
Donald Trump won the Presidential election for one simple reason. He told the people what they wanted to hear and is continuing to do so. The republican candidates were all lacking in any kind of message before the primaries, so Trump won. The democrates treated their primaries as simply parades to show off a candidate the general population did not want. There is no other reason Trump should have won except for being the voters only choice.
The opposite is true in just about every way.
Trump isn’t winning. He didn’t deliver on any campaign promise that actually mattered: The wars are still on (though it looks like Russia declared victory in Syria — hardly something that happened because Trump was working towards it), with more wars appearing likely (what happened to “the time for wars of nation building are over”?), Hitlery Clinton is still moving around freely, writing fascist books and giving interviews (“Lock her up”? Not quite…), the swamp is deeper than ever and occupies key positions even in the Trump administration (Sessions, Pompeo, Cotton, … — you don’t drain the swamp by giving the alligators top jobs!)
And THAT’s a bad thing. Not just because things that need to be done aren’t getting done, but also because what most people will conclude is not so much that Trump is fake opposition (which he very likely is), but that a (any) perceived outsider will do almost exactly the same as the neocon/neoliberal establishment.
Certainly the next outsider to run for any office will have an even harder time than Trump.
Wars? MilitaryIndustrial Complex has been running things since Eisenhower’s Administration. Lol Trump’s riding the Deep State Tiger; his main success right now is that they haven’t killed him. You seem to miss the concept of judging a person by his enemies, which is well accepted by his supporters; all the Trump haters appear to be the same self-righteous “for your own good” petty dictators beaureaucrats (and syphocant mouthpieces) who have been lying to us for decades now. Funny how so many of these people are suddenly being outed for their long term crimes and perversions.
Funny how the Marines raided Langley and MSM is silent.
Lot easier to drain a swamp when the gator population is reduced.
Last election, the majority of pass over State electorats showed how tired they were with the existing “dog and pony” show.
One year in Office and Trump has kept more campaign promises than all eight years of his “Hope and Change” predecessor. Lol President Trump, first and fullmost, is a businessman. Those of us who waited 8 years for “Hope and Change” for US and were paid off in the same old crapola, are more than willing to give President Trump the same amount of time.
We no longer listen to “the boy who cried wolf” media seriously; we know it’s degenerated into a soap opera. Meaning it’s scripted on demand to create an appearance of news instead of the agenda of the six individuals/corporations that own 80+% of our countries media.
I absolutely agree about Trump’s main success being that they haven’t killed him (which is good, but not sufficient — if he manages to remain alive by “compromising” by mostly doing their bidding, that’s not going to help us much more than anything “Hope and Change” did).
I also agree about his enemies – those who scream loudest against him (even inside his own party) are usually the worst criminals we’ve seen in this country, from McCain to Hitlery Clinton to Schumer, Pelosi and Graham — and of course the corrupted lying media which rarely ever report anything but lies.
But that said, I don’t get why they don’t like him (outside of “he dared defeat our beloved Hitlery”) because on most issues he’s doing exactly what they’re saying needs to be done – not what anyone sane would say needs to be done. Bomb Afghanistan? Sure. Keep the Iraq war going? Sure. Bomb Syria even after ISIS is defeated? Sure… Keep up the saber-rattling against Russia and North Korea? Sure… Constantly threaten Iran and destroy the one and only thing Obomber did right (the Iran deal)? Done… Give tax cuts to the super rich at the expense of the middle class? On its way…
Drain the swamp? Lock her up? End the wars? Not so much…
He may be forced into that by those deeper in the swamp than him – but that doesn’t change the fact that he is mostly doing their bidding.
I’m certainly willing to give him more time (including a second term unless someone far better appears out of nowhere – which hasn’t happened so far and likely won’t happen given both parties are under the control of the swamp) – but he probably doesn’t have the time, every indication is his opponents will win big next year (by playing dirty (see Moore) or even vote theft if necessary) and then impeach him probably in the new Senate’s first session.
If he wants to change anything, his chance to do so is now. So far I don’t see him making use of it.
The only good thing he’s doing at all is calling out the media for being fake news – but that’s rather ineffective given most people seem to think he’s wrong and/or lying (they even still believe the thoroughly debunked charges against Moore – which pretty much was a test as to how many people still believe media lies).
