    The peak comedy were all the 100% "fact-based" predictions (including Colbert big league) and their faces after the big day and how they're all trying to crawl back into the "believe us, please...our opinion still matters!"

    It gets worse, the state senate leader in CA admitted that more than half his extended family are in the US illegally.

    Obama specifically also encouraged such people to vote in the last election....that they could not be prosecuted.

    Dumbocrats are going to get a very rude awakening in the coming months and years indeed.

    From what I gather, Trump seems to have made good on all his promises on all matters that aren't sticking up for the working class when it comes matters of the economy, environment, bank regulations, and social programs.
    Unfortunately, even for what that is worth, all his promises are what I gather to constitute rule by popular referendum.

    People appear to distrust complex bureaucracy they cannot understand, so they want to sacrifice nuanced, researched policy stance to experiment with policy based on their own ideas of how the world should work. They will suffer for it in the longer term. Perhaps the government could have been more transparent but governing a large modern nation is a monumentally complex undertaking and it is not reasonable for the average citizen to expect to understand all the decisions being made by various subcommittees staffed with experts that have in some cases invested much of their lives researching the matters they are tasked to develop policy for. If they try, then countries that have a culture that does give value and deference to academic merit and intellectualism will overtake the US in development because they will be able to develop and implement more sophisticated policy while government in the US will remain at the mercy of popular sentiment due to the level of distrust between society and expert opinion. Sometimes it's preferable to just have well-researched and coordinated strategy than trial-and-error.

    Additionally, somewhere in Trump's platform is a sensible position on immigration and culture. Westerners tired of traditional parties' apathy on immigration and cultural integration and they went for the only option that was offered, along with whatever else that came with. If other parties want to be taken seriously in the future, they will have to take seriously the fear of white people with respect to being in cultural / ethnic demographic freefall. Even the muslim mayor of London came into office because he was willing to speak openly about the importance of western values in UK society.

    I am still waiting for a 40% duty on Chinese goods. That will be the best move. Chinese bubble will blow up with a force greater than Tsar Bomba.

    United States President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday: "The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo."

    Sun will also rise tomorrow. I wonder if he will tweet thanking himself and blaming media for not praising him enough for bringing light to all americans each morning.

    Swapan Dasgupta in the Jaipur Lit Fest 2017.While it doesn't directly pertain to the topic , his views on the right wing Renaissance in nations as diverse as India , the US , Russia , GB and other nations in the EU , would certainly be of interest to the Indian member here & perhaps the non Indian members too.
