As a leftist in Trump's corner from now, this hyper-protest/activism is unsustainable and currently hypocritical. Its disappointing to see. By the time Trump makes his play on the establishment, Clinton's and corruption (if he does) he'll red pill everyone but the most brainwashed status quo zombies.

What do you mean by leftist if I may ask? Becuase a lot of what he is doing is what my "leftist" (scotsman here) da would approve of. Workers jobs, state infrastrucure, forcing big companies to invest in the state/its workers. Would be good to hear what you mean because I only have a UK perspective. Here it can mean anything from protecting the workers from big companies and investing in improvements like my da or to full blown marxist ideas that most of the youth I work with enjoy.

Edit.. asking because the left or right idea seems like a distraction to me. There is much common ground that has been fallow due to the distraction of the left/right thing.

Trump is a classic or traditional Democrat who ran on the Republican ticket. He's what is known as a RINO. Or, a republican in name only.

The last classic Democrat this country had was JFK. He also lashed out at the corruption and corporate evil within our government. One of the last things JFK did was remove us from the federal reserve. The day after he died it was restored.

Remember: Trump used to be a democrat. Now both sides have gotten so extreme that he is only nominally a republican.

He has a majority of leftist views, but his stance on abortion is different so he is labeled as right wing. It's stupid.

What do you think people mean by leftist these days? If you have to ask, maybe you should be on Reddit instead, they LOVE people being overly semantic there.

Just came from reddit and I'm shocked/so happy that you didn't get downvoated to oblivion for this post. I definitely made the correct decision to move over, fuck reddit.

It gets better: They did not catch that he filed the FEC paperwork for the 2020 election. This means that any nonprofit that attacked trump after jan 25 could lose their IRS status from the Trump IRS.

So now all the 501c3s have to keep their mouths shut, or lose their status.

4d chess.

It's so beautiful. Trump really is a very bright guy, I don't think the other side appreciates what they're up against. MAGA Baby!!!

Wait for them to try and change the rules so that status can't be applied so early.

I hope so. The shills everywhere are so goddamn annoying. And I'm sure there are some people that don't realize they're being shilled to.

Trump is destroying the 1 to 2 week news cycle by working fast and efficiently. He's bringing that news cycle down to 1 or 2 days tops.

With that, this whole immigration ban will be forgotten about tomorrow night because like you said, Supreme Court pick.

He'll string these leftists along for a while and hopefully drain Soros dry

Moreover, it's difficult to organize protests - no matter how well funded you might be - on such a short notice; that and protest fatigue might set in, even amongst the most devoted participants; I know it's not as if they have jobs to go back to, but it takes time away from their yoga classes and kale shopping...

As much as I would like Trump to drain Soros dry, the guy makes 3-4 billion a year in interest/dividends. I don't think he'll ever run out of money. He'll die before that happens.

Speaking as a journalist... After about noon on Friday is the best time for that kind of news because print is mostly already wrapped for the weekend, no one watches news again until Monday and everyone has basically checked out for the better part of 3 days. There's even a burn-out level on social. People are mostly thinking about drinking, not world affairs.

Trump's team has been really interesting to watch so far when it comes to strategy. There's basically a three-day cycle to news, so he's been dumping info in shorter time frames. It's hard to generate that minimum required level of outrage when your opposition is divided in their narrative. You don't get the required call/response that you do when you've allowed the messaging enough time to bounce off social and flow back into the news room. It's a great strategy when you know you're going to piss a lot of people off. I'm surprised more people haven't done it.

The SCOTUS nomination is going to blow immigration out of the headlines...

DIVIDE and CONQUER has been used successfully by the ruling class to keep us bashing each other while they run off with all the money. They'll keep on getting away with it until we work together to make corruption illegal again and Represent.Us has the best plan I've seen to do this. The beauty of it is 1) totally non-partisan and 2) goes around the dirty politicians. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhe286ky-9A

Scott Adams wrote about this in his blog last week. He called it "outrage dilution"

The left gets outraged at anything they disagree with. When everything is outrageous, nothing is.
