Last Attacks by the Obama Administration on Trump Administration - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

In the last hours of the Obama Administration the political hacks of the Administration are throwing out their last arrows at the new President and his team.   The process of nomination and confirmation takes time in the US Congress, the Bill Clinton Administration had to go through a few Attorney General nominees before they had a confirmation.   In the Bush 41 Administration they had a problems getting a nominee through before they picked Dick Cheney as Defence Secretary.   It is a political game in D.C the opposition Party tries to knock off a nominee, just to show they have power and political payback.  Both Parties have political hacks, it's the nature of the political game. 

The TRUMP lands in D.C - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

It was fun watching BBC News has it covered the arrival of the President - Elect in Washington D.C, it was so biased it was nuts, one interview was about the psychology of the President, and then a writer said he was afraid of the results of a Trump Presidency.  BBC News really has to grow up, is the level of coverage we are going to get, if so this blog suggests that News Junkies turn on to Fox News, at least they are objective in their coverage, a Conservative edge but objective.     The liberal mainstream press has to get over itself, this coverage recalls the early Reagan years, in around 1980 the left wing Guardian had a cartoon of Reagan in cowboy costume and the ruins of the Capital Hill, yes dear voter, they were nuts at the time.   Let us hope we get better coverage tomorrow.

Guantánamo Bay the Endless Prison - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

Gitmo should NEVER be closed, it should be kept open to take new terrorists, they are a constant threat to the US.   The new Trump Administration should carry on with the drone strikes, in fact increase them, get the lawyers out of the room and kill the terrorists.  If the terrorists can be captured they should be taken to Gitmo, waterboarding should be used to get information.   The lax Obama Administration was more interested in what the liberal NYT and the Guardian think, the main concern should be the security of the US and Europe, thus Daesh and Al Qaeda need to be destroyed, lives need to be saved, terrorists do not have rights.

The Defence Department vs. President Obama - Obama Era


Lets Get Real:

The Manning pardon by President Obama was a national disgrace, the liberal President could not help himself, he was throwing a bone to the LEFT, the US national security did not enter his mind.  There is no way of removing the pardon, but the new Trump Administration should make it clear that those release US national security secrets are traitors, and that the previous action by President Obama was a disgrace and will not happen under a Trump Administration.   One can only say that JFK and Reagan are turning in their graves, this would not have happened under their Administrations.

Obama leaves on high in polls - Obama Era


Lets Get Real:

This is a good poll rating to have at the end of two terms, it should be noted that Bill Clinton had 66% approval rating by Gallup in 2001, while Reagan had 63% in 1989, thus far the Gallup poll has not been published for Obama.   Of course Reagan had seen his VP, Bush 41 elected his successor, while Clinton saw his VP, Al Gore defeated by Bush 43, and Obama has seen the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton go down to Donald Trump.   The press really HATE the Trump, they are hardly objective when it comes to President Trump, let's hope the new President is very lucky and can produce results, if US is great again then the World is better off, if Trump is a disaster the World suffers, both in the economic and security field.

The POLLS are rigged AGAINST ME - President - Elect Trump


Lets Get Real:

One can argue from the perspective of Donald Trump that he has a point, the general election polls ALL showed that Trump was behind Clinton, but he won, thus it can be argued that the sample used by the pollsters is OFF when it comes to Republican or Trump voters.   The President - Elect is not in power yet and his polls have taken a hit due to battles on the way to January 20th.   The real polls will be those taken after a few months of a Trump Presidency, then we should see how Trump stands with the US voter.  These pre January 20th polls do not count for much, lets see the numbers after a political or international crisis and how Trump responds, that will give a fair view the Trump Presidency. 

Donald Trump DOWN in CNN Poll - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

One does feel a bit sorry for President - Elect Trump, he has not gotten it office and his honeymoon has not even happened, its straight in to Partisan fight from the start, with the Russian dossier, the arguments with Democrats, it never ends.   The President - Elect must be looking forward to Friday as a day of rest in many respects, he will be President, he can move to the press to the Old Executive Building, just far enough away from the Oval Office to get some rest.  The speech on January 20th will be interesting, one is curious, will it make real news or just the usual speech for that kind of day.   The President could be tough on Iran and come out in firm support of Israel, that would annoy then former President Obama. Or will it be the usual speech of bringing people together etc, the usual rubbish.   That would be a mistake, the US voter in the belt way elected Trump to be different, let us see what happens.
