        I had the bad luck to catch a bit of CNN coverage at my father-in-law’s house on a visit. Their topic of reportage? Melinda didn’t go with Don to Davos so their marriage is (probably) on the rocks. That’s the best they can do. Pathetic. They will soon be FORCED to report on the Big Ugly or lose even more ratings. So when the fake pope talks about how bad fake news is, we can assume he’s talking about the MSM and CNN.

      Every time our President travels abroad, he is well received and even the negative press has to say positive things about him. Shortly after he returns home, predictably and systematically, the press will come out with some big negative bombshell and they suck everything good out of the air and the trip. It has happened every single time.

        Not even day and night, not even the same ball park. Obama was a fraud. Obama had no understanding of who these business leaders were in the room; Trump is the real thing.

        Hard to imagine what this means for the US future.

        Regulation impact biggest problems are massive uncertainty and massive project delay. People can understand a little what uncertainty does to a project, but in this age, small delays can be killers, small delays, and regulations can cause years of delay.

        Takes a business man to grasp the significance. Obama was a fraud, an imposter (I don’t even care about that fraudulent birth certificate, paper, he himself was a fraud.)

          “Obama was a fraud. Obama had no understanding of who these business leaders were in the room”

          Obama did not EVER go to DAVOS because Obama had no earthly idea how business actually works and knew he was out of his league. The Titans are at the grown up table– Obama was at the kiddy table. In order to discuss a matter you must understand the subject matter. Obama was very good at destroying business he had/has no idea on how to build a successful business.

          Meanwhile President Trump weaves seamless among these titans as in his business, he has dealt with them directly or a purchaser of the goods and products they sell in one way or another.

          Name one leader that gets the reception President Trump does- the people in that room were excited ! The know a solid leader when they see one. They know a successful leader when they see one.

          My Dad had a dozen companies — in every sector-at one point he was a keynote speaker on Business Leadership. Anyway, I would watch him pack for these trips and would ask him what he was going to talk about and he always just said “Leadership”. I finally asked him again on trip number 10— ” Why do you keep talking about the same thing every time” !

          I’ll never forget what he said…. He said, “in a room of 3000 people there might be one or two TRUE leaders”. I said, “that does not sounds like there are many leaders”, He said — “Exactly– some are born Leaders some can be trained, but born leaders have something inside that cannot be taught and that is rare”.

All serious, smart people in this meeting, all truly respectful and sincerely appreciative of Trump. They understand the real work Trump has done and that the man before them was a good and effective force in the world. What a breath of fresh air to watch these actual doers, versus the superficial nitwit punditry going on about prostitutes and golden showers.

        I actually despise commercials that promote liquor or beer or any other alcoholic beverage that people drink themselves into a stupor with and then drive into and kill others or go home and beat up the wife and kids or a woman stabs her husband while drunk and etc.

        As a Christian I pray that some of these purveyors of death and destruction will repent and cease producing these things before they move on into eternity to receive recompense for their ungodly offerings. So many have suffered needlessly from their products.

        It doesn’t end with the adults either. I worked in drug and alcohol rehabilitation for about ten years and watched an eleven year old boy so addicted to alcohol and drugs that he could not be persuaded to change. Some people decided to adopt him and soon after he was in their home and out of rehab he returned to his vices and we never heard from him after that. The people who adopted him were heart-broken. We also grieved with them.

        I was heavily into alcohol and drugs. Alcohol for 12 years and six of those year in drugs using and dealing on the street. I have seen first hand what both do to people including my own attempted suicide while using them. They are evil beyond our understanding.

        Long ago I read a scripture that has stuck with me for all 43 years of my life as a Christian. The scripture was speaking of Paul and of the possibility of putting a stumbling block in the path of another person.

        When I read that I thought of Christians who drink and the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the scripture Paul wrote. This is where my thinking is ever since.

        Suppose a new convert comes to my house and asks for a drink of water. I tell him to go get one not knowing he just recovered from alcoholism. He opens the door of my refrigerator and says in his mind; “C R Lord has beer in his house so it must be alright for Christians to do that. I might be strong enough to resist the temptation to get drunk but he isn’t and so he goes home and gets a beer for his refrigerator after my example. One beer doesn’t satisfy him so he immediately goes and gets a case thinking he could restrain himself and just have a little now and then. He ends up drunk and never follows through on restraints on the booze, turns his back on his new faith and is eternally damned.

        It started in my refrigerator. I put that block in his way to stumble over. Even if there is a remote chance of any kind that I could be the cause of another’s ending such as that I will not have a single drop of alcoholic stuff in my house now or forever. There is plenty of good stuff to drink so I can forego my personal pleasure for the sake of others.

    This is absolutely great and it was a master PR move by PDJT to go to Davos (in addition to the practical considerations of “doing business.” Why?

    1) It shows these business leaders showing deference and good will to PDJT, and taking him with the utmost seriousness. This directly contradicts the media narrative both in the U.S. and Europe of Trump being incompetent, a buffoon, a clown, or a threat to the world. 2) Every last one of them thanked him for what he has done and promised that they would make further investments and create more jobs in the U.S. This is the best commercial Trump could have for his MAGA economic agenda.

    These men care basically about one thing: making as much money for their companies as possible. Let’s put it this way: they don’t like PDJT because of his haircut. This video signals that they now see investing in the U.S. as a great opportunity, an opportunity that wasn’t there one year ago. They know who to thank for that! Now the rest of the world sees this, too.

    Sundance, thank you so much for posting the introductions at this dinner meeting! Just fascinating!

    First, the room is awful…is this Davos ‘DevilDesign’? Yuk.

    Second, President Trump slyly mentioned that the US solar panel business will be completely redesigned or revamped…cannot remember his exact words. Does this have anything to do with the fact that 14 out of 16 solar energy companies in the US under O were given billions of stimulus cash and then became bankrupt? Not to mention that the owners of said fourteen were bundlers for Obama? So, just wondering if the laundering will be exposed.

    Third, is ABB looking at purchasing GE? I will be asking my sources, but are there any financial advisor or broker Treepers here who would know if the toxic GE might actually be able to be saved under their direction?

      Don’t forget. Becoming POTUS made Trump the most powerful man on earth. These people are kissing the royal ass and seeking to curry favor(s), because there is too much $$ at stake. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are true friends of his at Davos, but they have all bought into Globalism. They respect Trump because he is one of them, AND he is POTUS. Davos is also one of the most heavily guarded meetings in the world. It would be a MASSIVE embarrassment to the world business community if POTUS were harmed while attending their event. And all would come under suspicion by the US gov’t and it’s people. None of them want that, even those who would like to see harm come to him. Just ask Bin Laden how that turned out, as an example of the long memory and reach of the USA. So they fear him, too, and rightly so. He is no longer Donald Trump, he is POTUS, and all that implies.

    One of Trump’s greatest attributes is that he is not overwhelmed and overly impressed with anyone. He has a focus when he walks in and when he’s at the table, MAGA. Obama’s focus was himself and photo ops. World leaders knew he was a pushover with his cadre of mediocre intellects supporting him. Think of Trump walking into glittering Davos with the world’s business and political leaders, as James Bond walking into his bedroom to find PuṢṢy Galore waiting for him, “But of course you are.” As for Obama, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl_NpdAy3WY
