Trump Derangement Syndrome is a disease

They first tried to keep Donald Trump from being president. That conspiracy reached the highest levels of the FBI, maybe the highest levels of our government. When that didn't work they demanded a recount. Then they demanded the Electoral College not seat him. That failed and they moved to impeachment talk, impeachment over nothing remotely resembling an impeachable offense. Then they tried to shout down his policies. The tax cuts would be 'Armageddon,' remember? Again they were wrong and the economy is at the best place it's been in decades.

They thought they had created a lethal issue in family separation at the border. The left-wing media have been exposed for lying to the American people about it. They didn't tell them that Obama detained children in far worse conditions. They didn't tell them that 80 percent of the children held in detention came with no parent at all. They didn't tell them that the viral photo of a little boy in a cage was a fraud or that the little girl, looked down upon menacingly by the president on the cover of Time, was never separated from her mother. In fact, her mother had kidnapped her from her father in Honduras. They didn't tell them, but word got out. Now a majority of Americans, according to a CBS poll, favor building the wall. This isn't how this issue was supposed to end.

What's more troublesome to the left is now, according to a CNBC survey, the majority of Americans favor the president's handling of the economy. That's a tipping point in American politics. Pocketbook issues usually hold the strongest sway over American voters. Pretty soon some of the staunchest opponents of Trump will say, "I still think Donald Trump is a vulgarian, but " Once that 'but' creeps into the conversation, it's all over.

So, there's only one thing left for those with Trump Derangement Syndrome to do. Sow utter chaos in the country.

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, is kicked out of a Virginia restaurant because the owner says she works for an 'inhumane' administration. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is screamed at and harassed out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC. Florida's AG, Pam Bondi, can't even attend a screening of a Mister Rogers movie without being accosted by deranged anti-Trump fanatics. Maxine 'Mad Max' Waters throws gasoline on the fire by encouraging everyone everywhere to harangue Trump administration officials. "If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."

They've lost. Not just their minds, they've lost the cause. It's no coincidence that the better the country does the more deranged they become. America's prosperity through tax cuts and capitalism is the worst news these people could get. They felt they were so close to fundamentally transforming this country under eight years of Obama only to see most of what he built on sand washed away in a torrent of supply-side economics.

If you've been waiting for these Never-Trumpers to calm down it should be clear to you that they're not going to. The more they see their precious socialist utopia slipping away the more hysterical they become. Many of these people are ashamed of what made this country great. They think capitalism is cruel and capitalists are evil. They despise the direction we're going.


They see only one option left, and that is to burn society to the ground.

The bums are out of control
Homeless people are taking over. I know we're supposed to be sympathetic, and I am. I've worked with the homeless in varying capacities. I've given my time and money. I have a special place in my heart for the truly needy. But I fear too many are taking advantage of our generosity. Take the ubiquitous person at the off-ramp with the sign....

Is going back to the moon worth it?
Before we get into this I don't want anyone thinking I'm a space curmudgeon. I loved Star Trek. (Star Wars, not so much.) I think space exploration is exciting. I'm old enough to remember when we landed on the moon. You'd be amazed at how many people are alive today who weren't even born the last time we went to the moon in 1972. Now it's been r...

Don't fear the Chinese trade war
Everybody's freaking out about a trade war with China. What's the worst case scenario? That we no longer do business with China? That would be fine by me. China is on just about every group's top 10 list of human rights violators, usually at the very top. It's a brutal communist regime that's killed tens of millions of people. An estimated 45 mi...

Mayor Pete is NOT president-ready
What qualifies a person to be president? Interesting question. Pose it to a hundred people you'll probably get a hundred answers. Most will say experience. That can either be in the business world, as in President Trump's case, or political. What kind of political experience? Most of our presidents have first been governor somewhere. A few, like...

Thirty years asleep
I read an article in The National, a publication from the United Arab Emirates, about an Emirati woman who awakened from a coma after nearly 30 years. Can you imagine that? It got me to thinking whether someone in that situation would find the world a better or worse place after 30 years.Just think of what has transpired over the past 30 years. ...

Reparations make victims out of the victimless
Georgetown University students recently voted 2-1 to create a $27 student fee to pay reparations to descendants of slaves sold by the university in 1838 in order to save it. Descendants of those 272 slaves are treated as legacy students by the university, giving them preferential treatment in admissions. The liberal world rejoiced, but it was si...

At war with socialism
This is almost like a war. We're fighting socialism on so many fronts. One wave of the dreaded enemy is approaching from the west as California seeks to tax soft drinks, tires, guns, car batteries, even lawyers. Anything the socialists don't like they tax. Another big battle front is in the southwest. The one at the southern border. They've pene...

The left must stop Joe Biden at all cost
You would think with the resume of Joe Biden you'd be embraced by your own party. This ain't Joe's party any longer. It's the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. You wonder why the Democrats aren't rushing to Joe's defense over accusations of inappropriate touching? The truth is the socialist wing of the Democrat Party is behind th...

After Mueller, now what?
I think everyone can agree, regardless of political ideology, the Trump-Russia issue turned into a big mess. The news media detest not knowing. In place of good, solid information on just what may have transpired between the Trump campaign and Russia, or just what may not have transpired, they chose to fill in the blanks with rampant negative sp...

The race to Venezuela is on
There's this guy named Andrew Yang. You've probably never heard of him. The San Francisco Chronicle is singing his praises. Why? Because he's running for president and he's promising a 'freedom dividend' to every adult American. What's a freedom dividend? It's $1,000 a month just for being alive. How does he expect to pay for this? Oh, he has no...
