The Demolition President

Authored by Dilbert Creator Scott Adams,

President Trump has delivered on a number of promises for his base. But there was an impressive amount of breakage along the way.

1

You might say he President Trump did as much demolition as he did construction.

The press is doing a good job of telling us what he accomplished in 2017. But they keep leaving out all the stuff he broke that probably needed to be broken.

I’ll fix that for you here.

GOP – Trump broke the GOP and reconstructed it along his terms, successfully it seems.

DNC – The DNC has no charismatic leader, no game plan, and little money.

Clinton Dynasty – Done

Bush Dynasty – Done

Mainstream Media – The public learned that news coverage is based on bias as much as fact.

NFL – Ratings down, attendance down.

If President Trump were a large piece of construction equipment, which one would he be?

 

1

FBI (leadership) – The FBI as a whole is still highly credible, but the leadership is not.

Pundits – Nearly all the pundits were wrong about Trump’s nomination, election, and successful (by Republican standards) first year.

Government Regulations – For good or bad, we have fewer regulations now.

Hollywood – Big stars are alienating 40% of their potential audience whenever they take time off from groping.

North Korea – They used to have a pathetic but functioning economy. That situation is changing rapidly.

ISIS – Remember ISIS? They used to be a big deal.

TPP – Pulled out

Paris Climate Accord – Pulled out

Reality – I told you in 2015 that candidate Trump would change more than politics. I told you he would change the way we saw reality. Do you remember when you thought the news reported facts and that humans used those facts to make reasoned decisions? You probably don’t think that anymore.

I’m probably leaving out some stuff that got broken. It’s been a busy year.

We may have something here.I've said it before:

I've come to the conclusion that the Donald was selected to preside over the restructuring of the US. The tired ,well worn- out slogan that he is "better than Hillary" is inconsequential considering how bad Hillary was. Being"better" than a criminal,crook,treasonous ,abject psychopath isn't really an accomplishment.

I don't know how this restructuring will be achieved and what the result will be,but I am sure this is the case.

US is beyond any possible saving. Look at the debts(government,personal,corporations),trade deficit(700 Bil each year),the  outsourcing of everything(they even outsourced false flags ,like 911,done mostly by Mo$$ad,how sick is that?),total collapse of the infrastructure,a sick population on every level(physical,moral,spiritual,social,educational,cultural combined with the entitlement and exceptional mentality),an Empire spread to thin all over the world,policing it(900+ military bases,financial bribes,wars and threats of wars).

And something nobody likes to talk about and which is also unsustainable: 5% of the world population consumes 50% of its resources and produces 40% of its waste.

These are the facts and are unarguable and irrefutable.

So US ,in its actual form ,has to go. Will it collapse in multiple smaller states?Possible.If you look closely,(they )are nudging for a civil war or big social upheaval.( see 1/2 country "with her"hating the other 1/2 ,Antifa,BLM,immigration which continues)

The Donald ,who has great experience with bankruptcy,was "selected" to preside over the US bankruptcy.

This is what I believe ,after observing what has/is happening.

But,I could be wrong,I'm not part of the CLUB(The Donald,as wealthy as he is,is only the doorman of the BIG CLUB,in my opinion).

The wrecking ball visual is apt. Trump is the Dada president, no mere Impressionist breaking down the optics. He crashed the party of the reflexively revered Fake News Media. Adams is right about that. But I still say Trump has not come through on his central promise: ending wage-demolishing illegal immigration. He is more like a fly swatter than a bulldozer there.

Trump will soon have have other matters on his mind, such as his valuing an abandoned golf course at $100 million as a charitable contribution tax write-off.  

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5209701/Eerie-pictures-abandone…

  • Donald J. Trump State Park is in Westchester County, New York, just 45 miles north of Manhattan 
  • The president intended to develop it into a golf course, but couldn't get the proper permits
  • He subsequently claimed a $100m tax write-off after donating the land to the New York government in 2006

Excellent business decision. You should buy it and build a home for all the fucking liberals in that shit bag State. You and your fellow lazy whining misfits can meet and wish that Hillary would have won and do what all you Liberals do best ...molest children ...you sick bunch of weirdos . You can build a cage in the middle of it and put Michele Obama in it where she can sit on a perch ... shit in her hand and throw it on you and your fellow loser Liberals:)) ha ha ha ha

Donald J Trump continues to bank $433,000 every year selling bottled NYC tap water as Trump Ice Natural Spring Water. This is the same bloviating bunko artist who promised "You will have the best healthcare ... the best! It will be so cheap ... and so easy!", ...then blew up the USA healthcare system, and took massive corporate tax cuts, to be paid for by looting $1,500,000,000,000 from our healthcare system for the elderly.

My new website WhatTheFuck is signing up expert mesmerists who will convince the USAryan public that Trump walks on water and is the next best thing after sliced bread, ... because it's better to be deplorably mesmerized, than to be at War in yet another G-dforsaken Sandbox with no exit strategy, just to hold onto a thin Deep State majority in November.

“Trump Steaks, 

Trump Water” 

Even taking into account the Q-Tip wrecking ball on immigration, it is still better than an listening to this:

“Russia, Russia, Russia....sexism, racism, xenophobia, xenophobia, racism, sexism.....groping, groping, groping..........”

If you can’t have real news, addressing real economic issues, you may as well have a funny infomercial that, at least, makes you laugh at the Fake News pomposity.

Question:  Is there anything else you think or talk about than Trump, Trump, Trump.  You are nuts.  I read your blogs and you seem to think he is the source of all your ills.  It isn't like he's been in power 50 years like Uncle Joe Stalin.  Not even the John Birch Society blamed the Great Magic Negro for all their individual problems........

Scott Adams is just a cartoonist:

http://blog.dilbert.com/2015/08/13/clown-genius/

"... I’m going to predict he will be our next president ..."

13th August 2015.

I think he's a little more than just a cartoonist.  And notice the beginning of that sentence I referenced.  It starts with, "Now that Trump owns FOX ..."

Why would the cartoonist say such a thing?  What was all media like pre-8/2015?  I'm not going to paste the whole article here.  You're just going to have to look at the link yourself.  Can you even remember the political landscape of August 2015?  Trump was little more than a minor sideshow.

Scott Adams blogs are all there for the world to see as they are posted and/or to refer back to as necessary.
Please try to keep up.

That's a handy website for competent engineers to verify there aren't any competent engineers there.  Amazingly, they have a link to a competent paper (pile-driver model) which discusses the failure mechanics in a lucid technical manner.  However, it's not highly approachable for those lacking a mechanical engineering background.  I hadn't read the paper before just now, but it uses the same basic comceptual model I've argued for here before (that everyone hated), so save yourself some time by just down-voting me and continuing to pretend the Dunning-Kruger effect somehow doesn't apply.

I'll go beyond the paper into debunk mode.  However bizarrely (from my POV), people here do seem to think that lateral ejection is a sign of "controlled demolition", even though the ejection lasts for some time (following the "pile-driver" action downwards).  Look at any good video of the collapse.  At any point (particularly the beginning of the collapse), does any of the ejected material move upwards (relative to the earth, not the building) as it flies out?  It would if propelled by an actual explosion, right?  Alas, the material travels in a downward parabolic trajectory (just like the [gravity-based] Pile Driver model would suggest).

Anyone who still believes the (((official))) 9/11 story is either a retard or an Israeli/MIC shill or perhaps both. You probably would say that USS Liberty was just a case of mistaken identity too though right?

  1. If business confidence is up enough to hire more full-time employees at decent wage levels, why is tax revenue down?
  2. If confidence-infused employers are paying wages that exceed the earned-income limit for welfare, why is EBT usage still so high?
  3. If the jobs are not mostly part time, temp, high turnover and 1099 gigs at low-wage levels, why do we need to bust the deficit through the roof — wrecking-ball style — by doubling a non refundable / refundable child tax credit that already issues tax-welfare checks to single moms, legal and illegal immigrants that, at the $6,444 max, equal 3 to 4 months of full-time wages in many jobs?
