And from a Clinton News Network staffer.

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics ... ailsignout
Donald Trump may have never had a better time being President.

Only a re-election party on the night of November 3, 2020, could possibly offer the same vindication for America's most unconventional commander in chief as the 36 hours in which two foundational strands of his political career are combining in a sudden burst of history.

Trump will become an undeniably consequential President with the Senate due to vote Saturday to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, consecrating the conservative majority that has long been the impossible dream of the GOP.

On Friday, Trump had celebrated the best jobs data for 49 years as the unemployment rate dipped to 3.7%, offering more proof of a vibrant economy that the President says has been unshackled by his tax-reduction program and scything cuts to business regulations.

While his 2016 election campaign was most notable for swirling chaos and shattered norms, Trump's vows to nominate conservative judges to the Supreme Court and to fire up the economy were the glue for his winning coalition.

The struggle to confirm Kavanaugh split the country, deepened mistrust festering between rival lawmakers and threatens to further drag the Supreme Court into Washington's poisoned political stew. But Trump stuck with it and ground out a win.

So he has every right to return to voters in the next four weeks ahead of the midterm elections to argue he has done exactly what he said he would do. He now has a strong message to convince grass-roots Republicans that it's well worth showing up at the polls.

Testing the new message
He will get his first chance to road-test his new, improved message at a campaign rally in Topeka, Kansas, on Saturday night.

It's ironic that it was Trump, a late convert to conservatism -- not authentic Republicans like President Ronald Reagan, both Bush presidents and beaten GOP nominees Mitt Romney and John McCain -- who finally delivered the Supreme Court majority.

If he is confirmed as expected, Kavanaugh will be Trump's second nominee to reach the court in less than two years, following Neil Gorsuch.

Of course, the Supreme Court win is the culmination of decades of work by conservative activists and was masterminded by the cunning of Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell. But Presidents get credit when they are in the Oval Office when things go well and Trump, whether it is his fault or not, has taken more than his share of criticism.

Trump has so far been uncharacteristically quiet about his banner day -- perhaps to avoid any last upsets before Saturday's scheduled Senate vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

He did pump out two short tweets.

"Very proud of the U.S. Senate for voting 'YES' to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh!" he wrote.

Earlier, he had tweeted: "Just out: 3.7% Unemployment is the lowest number since 1969!"

A President of consequence
There is more evidence than the soon-to-be reshaped Supreme Court and the roaring economy to make a case that Trump is building a substantial presidency that in many ways looks like a historic pivot point, despite its extremely controversial nature.

Largely unnoticed in the Washington imbroglio over sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, the Trump administration is engineering significant changes at home and abroad that often represent sharp revisions of direction from traditional American positions.

This week, for instance, the White House initiated a potentially momentous shift in the US approach to China, recognizing the Asian giant as a global competitor and a threat to American security, prosperity and interests -- reversing decades of policy designed to manage Beijing's ascent as a major power and eventual partner.

The administration is also tightening a vise around Iran in a strategy that threatens to escalate into open confrontation with the Islamic Republic. Elsewhere in the Middle East, a bolstered anti-ISIS strategy has blasted the radical group from its strongholds in shattered Syria. And Trump has rejected decades of US orthodoxy in managing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which could have uncertain results.

Trump's bullying approach to trade negotiations has recently yielded remodeled agreements with Canada, Mexico and South Korea. While he exaggerates how much he changed existing deals, he can still boast that his "Art of the Deal" negotiating strategy -- another core component of his appeal to his supporters -- is working.


An announcement of a deeper slashing of refugee admissions by the United States further cements the "America First" philosophy that has changed global strategic assumptions.

At home, Trump's assault on regulations at agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency is accelerating, in a blitz against what Steve Bannon once called the administrative state that fulfills another long-dreamed-of goal of the conservative movement.

The voters will choose

It will be up to voters in November and in 2020 to decide which of the two interpretations of Trump's presidency -- an era of conservative achievement or a disastrous national distraction -- becomes dominant.

But it already seems that Trump's grand design will be difficult for a future President to quickly reverse.

Less than two weeks ago, foreign diplomats at the United Nations laughed at Trump when he boasted about the historic sweep of his presidency -- and there was no doubt that he was, as usual, exaggerating.

But it's also no longer possible to credibly argue -- despite the distracting blizzard of controversy, busted decorum and staff chaos constantly lashing Washington -- that there is not something significant taking place that is changing the political and economic character of the nation itself.

Yeah I think he is more reagan than reagan was. I have only seen one major misstep with Trump. he should have vetoed the previous two big spending budgets. Other than that I cannot think of anything major.

In the meantime he has grown GDP to four percent when Obama said it couldn't be done. Unemployment is the lowest since the 60s. He has successfully re-negotiated several trade deals and made them more beneficial to the US. He has just about wiped out ISIS, Rocketman Kim has stopped the rockets. And He has done everything he could to change our immigration system, but unfortunately gets no help from republicans.

And trump has done it all in the face of the biggest media led hate campaign I have ever seen. Most republicans would melt in a day under this pressure, but he keeps right on going undaunted. He is literally saving america. probably in the long haul we are doomed. But I think he has done an amazing job so far.

And the truth is starting to win out. His approval rating with likely voters is now 51%. Even with the media running non stop 24/7 campaign commercials against him.

Yes. Hanson is as good as it gets. Good spotting

On the same theme, I refer to an article I posted earlier on "How trump Wins and How He Taught Reps to Fight to Win" (finally, sigh)

It appears that other countries are starting to give a fuck about what America says again.

Who'da thunk it??

Whatever.

Its still the Republican Party thats voting for all these exhorbitant spending bills & massive tax cuts which are pushing up the US deficits.

Trillion dollar deficits year after year is surely to catch up to the USA one day.

BTW Fashionista, i think Trudeau is also spending too much.

I may even vote for Scheer & the Tories if they promise to pay down the debt & balance the budget.

Same time my mind isnt made up who I will vote for in the next Canadian election.

Funny. Joe's hate-on for the US dominates his mind ... as the country he lives and posts in slides into the sewer

Even funnier, no matter how many negative posts he writes, they will never let him back in ... ever

Well cc, I admit, While I could be persuaded to vote Conservative federally in Canadian elections, I’d never vote for a party like the Republicans in the States. Actually, I admire some aspects of moderate conservatism, such as balancing budgets & dping whats best for the nation. However I think the Current crop of Republicans in the US are batshit crazy & they dont appear to care at all about their nation’s future nor the legacy they will leave future generations of Americans.

Well Joe, I really don't care what you could be persuaded to do in Canada .. a country that has nothing to do with this thread

nor do I care what you think of in another country that you seem consistently able to view only through the prism of long time and apparently personal "batshit crazy" hatred that goes way back in time

Hey cc - if thinking that the party of Lincoln & Ike has lost its way & is now batshit crazy is anti-American , then listen to what one of its members & congressman has criticized the GOP & what it once stood for:



Oh & btw while George W Bush & Donald Trump avoided Vietnam & partied like frat boys, Ron Paul enlisted and did his tour there in a war he actually opposed. So is Ron Paul an ‘American Hater’ too?

And it was under Eisenhower that the GOP delivered consecutive balanced budgets & surpluses

When it comes to debt Feminist joe never mentions obama the king of debt. Even though Obama doubled the national debt of every president before him while giving us the worst economic recovery since wwII. He also says republicans are bad because voters gave them power. Which is how its done in a representative democracy. While he never says anything negative about the anti-democracy tactics of the left-like intimidation, violence and mob tactics. Nor does he mention how the democrats have become increasingly extreme.

Feminist Joe's TDS is getting worse and worse. He's starting to sound a like full fledged, foaming mouthed progtard.

No one knows for sure what will happen at the November elections. The polls are not reliable and the same goes for the predictions of the wanna-be experts. The separation of families at the border hurts the Trump administration as well as the Kavanaugh spectacle. Now the response to the disappearance of Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi could tip the scales even more. The public is fickle. That has always been the case.

The kavanaugh thing hurt democrats not republicans. maybe that's what you meant. I don't know if that will carry over into the next 20 days. Other news items in the meantime may hurt either side.

I think the republicans will narrowly keep the house and make modest gains in the senate.

Anything can happen though.
