77 Percent of Americans Support President Trump and Kim Jong-un Summit…

A recent CNN poll (full pdf below) of how President Trump is handling North-Korea has the moonbats going bananas. A sea change in the behavior of North Korea led to a historic meeting between South Korea and the DPRK. Quite simply, President Trump’s strategic policy worked.

With advancing optimism for peaceful relationships, and against the backdrop of an upcoming summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un, CNN took a poll to evaluate opinion. WATCH:

.

As noted by PJ Media:

[…] “In keeping with this sea change in the course of events, Americans have swung heavily in favor of Trump’s handling of North Korea.

In November of last year, only 35 percent approved of the president’s handling of the issue, while 58 percent disapproved. In the most recent poll, a majority (53 percent) said they approved of Trump’s engagement with North Korea, while only 35 percent said they disapproved of it.

This represented a powerful 41-point (!!) swing from a negative 23-point approval rating to a positive 18-point approval rating. (read more)

              ________________

              Because Fox News, like ALL of the others, is enemy media.

              Think about it.

              If you are the globalist Marxist anti-American Left, you already have your own demographic sown up, with blanket coverage, ownership and control of every major media outlet in the country.

              Even so, and as much as you hate it, you realize there is a large swathe of the country that purposely rejects all of your propaganda and control/manipulation efforts.

              How can you reach them, and influence them?

              What other model for this already exists and has been working well for decades (Uni-Party…).

              So what better plan than to present the fallacy of false choice, by having a globalist foreigner known as ‘Mr. Wall Street’ start up a media company to manipulate, deceive, abuse and propagandize Conservatives, just as the establishment GOP has done so successfully for the last several decades?

              Before, they only controlled ‘one side’ of the narrative. With Fox News, they control both sides of the script. Like a soap opera, they can pit individuals against each other, and the next day they’re getting married (again). They control not just the action, but also the reaction. That’s much easier. You don’t need to think on your feet like an individual in real time — you have time to brainstorm with others and map it all out, knowing how each episode will ‘end’ and then constructing the storyline to that effect.

              Hollywood, government, media — it’s all intertwined. Think how much easier it would be for ‘narrative writers’ to construct the storylines when they control nearly all of the characters on both sides of a false dichotomy, instead of just the characters on their own side?

              The gaslighting, the Potemkin villages, the false flags, the psy-ops, the outright lies — we catch them doing it all the time. But we are creatures of habit, and tribalistic, we want to choose a side and root for our ‘team’.

              And they know it.

              That’s why they own both teams.

              Imagine if you found out that the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes football teams (and universities) were owned by the same people? What if you found out that the ‘rivalry’ was all manufactured, like Big Time Wrestling, and all the games had been fixed, going back decades?

              What if that is what’s going on with Faux News and all the other fake news outlets?

          Because Fox News is on his side, and he is on their side, and neither of them are on ours.

          But we want desperately to think they are on our side. So like an abused spouse, we ignore all the obvious betrayals, the beatings, the psychological abuse, and fixate on the one or two good things they do. Now and then. Or at least we think we remember when they did something good.

          It’s easier that way, to take the abuse.

        Absolutely!

        This is a very important issue and has been for some time. It’s easy to sideline and demonize a leader from another country. It makes it even worse when the deep state is the engineer behind all the bluster that includes exporting uranium one into NK and then use it to threaten this country as though it directly came from Kim.

        President Trump is a just man and approaches issues and subject on his own turf and understanding looking at both sides. In this case NK and Kim also have been bamboozled by Clinton, Bush and Hussein playing Russian roulette.

        That’s over thankfully and the president uses a strategy which he always has used as described in “The Art of The Deal”.

        Nk’s leader also benefits from the face to face meeting as it helps him and his country to the elevation of a legitimate leader and country rather than all the hellish reports we received periodically. Thinking about it – how much of was really true or honestly reported? Judging by the fake news media and their collaboration with the deep state – most likely 90+% were lies to shape opinions.

      From the article linked above:

      The old conventional wisdom: What if Democrats take back both chambers of Congress this fall?

      The new conventional wisdom: What if Republicans never lose another election?

      Seriously, it’s a cinch that the GOP will lose House seats this fall. The growing mystery is whether they’ll lose enough to actually return Nancy Pelosi to power.

      Yesterday CNN found the Democratic advantage on the generic ballot down to three points.

      Today Reuters finds it down to one.

      Given the feelgood spectacle this morning of Trump and Pence greeting American hostages on their return home from North Korea, it’s quite possible that a poll next week will show the GOP even — or ahead! — on the generic ballot.

      On Christmas Day 2017, they trailed by 13 points on average.

        Surely, they have figured out that they have to calculate differently nowadays – now, mid-terms are not national, so they can only achieve so much with Auto-Voto. But genuine vote only matters so much when the Progs know exactly how many Auto-Voto votes to plug in.

      Case in point—-

      I went over to my friends house with my dog ( she has a dog too and they are dog buddies ) — anyway she has twins boys and in their room they have the twin beds separated by a night stand, so there is obviously a space between the beds. I was in their room playing with the kids and the dogs on the beds. Her dog was jumping from one bed to the other over the space between and the kids are squealing and laughing but my little dog Bree was running along the side of the one bed and whimpering and carrying on because she did not know how to jump across the space to get across.

      I explained to the kids that Bree is a little afraid, because she has not done this before, so I am having Thor jump from one bed to the other to show Bree how to do it. Bree is watching still trying to figure it out. She is still afraid.

      I finally get on the opposite bed with the kids and Thor and I said let’s call Bree to come to us since we are all on one bed–so we are all in unison are saying “Come on Bree !! You can do it ! We are patting the bed ( signal to her to come ) and after a bit she FINALLY makes the leap across the space to the other bed. . Yay Bree !! You did it !! The kids and I are all yelling YAY Bree ! Hugs and cuddles -Bree is happy doing her wiggle butt thing.

      This is what I see with people and Trump. They might have been afraid of what Trump would do or not do. They has a predetermined idea of what kind of a President he would be. When they started see that he was not an idiot or reckless ( from the MSM bleating non stop nonsense ) they stated to really look at him– They see the people that support him and that number is growing. There is a divide we are on the other side of the divide encouraging them to join us despite their fears. With encouragement and understanding their fears we can help them make that leap to join us and to further understand there is safety in numbers.

      ps . Bree can now jump from bed to bed like a champ, because NOW she knows how. ; )

Rather, I believe that Trump felt the same way as most did, that is, that we were losing the country, and that as a result he decided to do something about it by running for the presidency. From the day in 2015 when he announced his candidacy I knew he would become president because he was saying out loud what many of us were thinking.

    The Democrat world is going to come crashing down starting in November 2018 and concluding in 2020! The data over the past 2 months is absolutely frightening. Richard Baris from PPD is one of the most accurate pollster’s out there. He successfully predicated Florida (his prediction of 1.8 versus actual margin of 1.2) and that our President would win both Michigan and Pennsylvania one day before the election.

    He just tweeted the following in reference to Likely Voters (LV):

    M.Joseph Sheppard wrote the following that was published in The Federalist:

    From the article linked above:

    The latest YouGov/Economist poll (May 6-8), one of a few that comprehensively breaks down support by ethnicity, has some frightening news for the Democratic Party.

    While President Trump’s approval holds steady among registered voters at 41%, his support among blacks in this poll is striking. If it holds for 2020, it could be devastating for Democrats. Among African-Americans, 16% approve of Trump, 10% are not sure, and 75% disapprove.

    Of course, one polling company’s report could be a fluke. Some firms use different methodology, and some don’t break down approval ratings by ethnicity, but the bigger picture is clear.

    Marist’s March 19-21 approval for Trump among black Americans was 6%; 17% were unsure, and 77% disapproved.

    The Quinnipiac poll, which is consistently negative to Trump, on March 21 found black approval at 11%, “Don’t Know” at 4%, and disapproval at 84%.

    Taken in the aggregate, the three polls have Trump’s approval at 11%, at 12% for not sure or don’t know, and disapproval at 77%.

    Again, while the negatives are high, the positives are higher than is typical for Republicans, and if black Americans vote in accord with these approval ratings it would be easily enough to tip a tight election.

    Whenever a change occurs, there’s usually a catalyst that brings the change about. This is especially true when it comes to the thought process, especially when dealing with ones long held belief system

    Almost 80% of Americans are in favor of the way the President is handling the North Korea situation? My God, that percentage includes many many democrats, & many of those democrats must be adamant Trump haters

    When those democrats see their party twisting & turning a wonderful development into a partisan talking point born of lies & malicious intent, they just may begin to think, to really think

    That just might be the catalyst that begins the detoxing & the reversing of the brainwashing / mind manipulation of some of them

    I’ve always said, at some point, reality is going to hit some people hard. When the economy is taking off, when you have more money in your pockets & more opportunities & when you suddenly feel more safe & secure in your own country, those realities are hard to dismiss

    Unless you’ve completely succumbed to the leftist brainwashing, there has to come a time where you begin to question what you’re being told when the reality doesn’t match the rhetoric

    President Trump is giving many of them the catalysts they need to jump start their rational thinking skills

      I have a lot of customers who are liberals, and I am liking things I am starting to them say. Aside from die-hard never-Trumpers, I am hearing more positive comments than ever, like:

      “I didn’t vote for him, but I am starting to like the things he is doing”
      “Hey, the economy is picking up – so is my business”
      “He is getting a lot more stuff done than BO ever did”
      “You can’t argue with his results”
      “If he can pull off this Korea deal, I might actually vote for him”
      “At least we aren’t looking like a bunch of wimps now”
      “This Russia thing is getting really stupid”
      “I never thought he could get this much stuff done”

      I know comments like these are anecdotal, but when liberals start talking this way its clear people are starting to admit to themselves that President Trump is performing much better than all his detractors ever thought he would. But, we have got to get the investigation findings released and out there – so people can see what has really been happening.

    This is all great if it is as it seems. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but, we mustn’t forget the Norks talked piece and reunification back in the 1960s. All the while they were tunneling toward Seoul to launch a surprise invasion. I’m just hoping President Trump can make it real peace this time.

      Agreed, however there are two factors that I think change the outcome this time:

      One: NK’s nuclear program collapsed. Literally. Kim just lost his leverage.

      Two: with strong sanctions, food scarcity becomes an issue. At some point the military, if not being fed adequately, is going to turn on Kim, the “what the hell do you have to lose” theory. Self-preservation is at the top of Kim’s mind.

      I’m cautious as well but I really do think we are going to see something magical occur next month.

        I am hoping that much of China’s leverage over NK was that nobody else would trade with NK except China. I also hope that given the chance to join the nations of the world and start trading with others can help Kim look like a great man to his people. Especially if he loosens his grip on their necks and starts allowing more freedoms, some will react positively. While there are always those who have suffered immensely and will never forgive or forget, if Kim starts to treat his own people well, then their anger may cool a bit and no longer be white hot.

        PDJT will give Kim a way out of the mess he is now in, with Kims recent nuke failure which results in him not actually being able to carry out the worst of his threats anyway. The more that NK starts trading with others, the less leverage that China will have over Kim. While China could give Kim nukes if China really wanted Kim to start a war, the US would notice this and stop it anyway. That being said, it is probably still a good idea to pray. I know I will.

          What does Kim tell his people after years of propaganda blasting from loudspeakers that all of the other countries are evil and that is why they try to destroy North Korea. They have been indoctrinated that their starvation and desperate plight is OUR fault.

          Maybe Kim can pin it all on the Macedonians, but I really don’t know how he is going to throw his country mentally and emotionally into ‘reverse.’

        That literal collapse is a big thing that I’m not seeing VSGPDJT getting credit for. If the collapse was not due to an external action (you know what I’m saying) then it was due to too many tests being run too quickly. That happened because our president pushed and taunted Kim which led him to make rash, emotional decisions – testing too much, too fast.

        So, either way VSGPDJT gets credit for that collapse in my mind.

    I know we aren’t there yet so it is probably too soon to take a victory lap. I remain suspicious of China and NK. But where it looks like we are heading is such a relief for me. Before PDJT I would turn on the TV when I would wake up in the middle of the night just to check if the Norks had fired one off yet.

    So grateful to our VSG, and to Sundance for his insight and “Lion ‘Splaining” because it has been so helpful to me to understand what PDJT was doing with China because of the relationship between China and NK. This would have had me pulling my hair out without that background of understanding.

    And so grateful that God put PDJT in leadership over this country. Sometimes I’m just so happy and relieved I tear up unexpectedly because I am overwhelmed by the gift we were given.

    (That’s when I’m not angry and gloomy over the ongoing coup and the plotters still at large and unpunished…)

      This is one where I actually fall back on the norms of statecraft — it’s highly unusual to show such optimism at such a high level if it’s not a done deal. Sure, it’s a little “deceptive” not to announce the exact status of a deal immediately, but it’s how these things tend to work — probably due to the substantive importance that the world actually SEE the leaders shake hands to make the deal “real,” and conservatism over the fact that until that happens, nothing’s assured.

      But from a technical standpoint, everything is put in place first, THEN leaders start expressing cautious optimism, then agree to meet to “seal the deal,” which effectively is already sealed.

      Not saying it’s IMPOSSIBLE things might fall apart; just that I think the status quo now is that there effectively is a deal.

    The thing is, there are those with TERMINAL TDS; they will despise DJT, till the day they die, no matter what he does.
    But then there are the useful idiots, deluded by the msm, those who were asleep. Every day, more and more are waking up to what a VSG DJT is.

    “Some people think politics is about 2 competing answers to policy questions. ITS NOT! Its about framing the question.
    Our VSG is a MASTER at reframing the question.
    Early on in the campaign, I started to keep a mental list of the times DJT said something, msm called him liar, time proved him true. Lost count, a LOOONG time ago. American people arent stupid, they notice this, even on subliminal level.
    Black male support didnt double in 2 weeks cause of Kanye tweets. They just felt more comfortable saying what they felt. The ‘hidden’ DJT supporter.

    Every day, in every way, his opponents are shooting themselves in the foot. In part, they are still answering the ‘old’ question, not even recognising he’s changed the question.
    Its amazing to watch.

    This is great news! But as much as I agree with and love what President Trump is and has done for restoring our great nation, and as much as I’ve read here about the Trump doctrine, and our VSG’s use of economic leverage against Chy-nah, I’ve got a feeling the current Administration has given either China or NK lilrocketman(or both) a glimpse of some of our newer defense weaponry. For lil rocketman to do such an abrupt about face, makes me think he was given a “demonstration” of our capabilities. Silently. And I think Russia has been quiet on this for the same reason. Could the “Rods from God” be real and already into play?

    Are they ‘moonbats going bananas’?

    Or are the dedicated, professional, hardline propagandists carrying out their mission and doing their job, for which they are highly paid?

    Seems like a very reasonable question with the revelations of each passing day.

    There may be ideology behind it, but more and more it appears that the entire media apparatus has been nothing more than a highly paid propaganda outlet for corporate multinational globalists and their agenda(s).

    In which case (and wholly by design) the general public’s (and to a lesser but still significant extent, ours) perception of reality and knowledge of world and national events is grotesquely distorted for political/ideological/financial gain.

    So are they ‘moonbats’, or well-paid mercenaries in a critical propaganda war on the American People?

    Trump’s results on North Korea are absolutely game changing; by that I mean the single biggest development in his campaign or presidency, suggesting to skeptics that MAGA may just be the real deal. It’s a remarkable, unqualified achievement, and any discerning, fair-minded person has to set aside assumptions and interrogate what they think they know.

    My (unsolicited) advice: Realize this is a win so big and significant that US/THEM victory laps aimed at fellow countrymen hurt the cause. Derisive broad-stroke condemnation of “liberalism” or “the left” or “blue” this or that might seem righteous and wholly earned — but it’s the dim view, the low path. Choose the high ground and look from 10,000 feet. Welcome allies. Perhaps more importantly — consider that you *have* allies.

    Consider a posture of generosity toward others of good faith who might at this moment be seeing things differently. Realize that partisan politics and corrosive media games can make decent people with different perspectives/experience/assumptions look at each other and treat each other as the enemy; ascribe to fellow citizens character defects and delusions so deep we write them off.

    Don’t let the swamp define and create divisions so absolute that we fail to maintain bridges, even if the bridges are there just in hopes they might one day be used. Joyous moments for our country are times those bridges get used.

    The battle lines are NOT “right”/”left” or “capitalist”/”socialist” or those who love freedom vs. those who worship govt, etc. The battle lines are between those ready and struggling to cast off the terms thrust upon vs. those still willing in complacency to think/act along familiar poles. Realize that these “socialists” or “communists” or fill-in-label are your fellow countrymen and a good many (maybe most, maybe nearly all) are also honest and struggling, perhaps just with a different perspective; actually do celebrate America and want to see it flourish and prosper and persevere; actually do want to see our leaders act in good faith and do the right thing, and succeed.

    You’re winning. MAGA is winning. Don’t let the MSM be the foil. Realize your power, and that the single biggest threat posed by that power (from the perspective of the establishment) is for it to expand across and beyond conventional party lines and power bases. Allow for the possibility that non-MAGA citizens are not the mortal enemy. Consider the paradox that some of the socialists or communists are unlikely allies and are what you think they are, or what they have been made to seem.

    MAGA’s greatest promise is the truth, borne out by the actions and results of the president. Those things speak for themselves, and the movement will thrive or falter on that axis — even among those who may not specifically agree with everything. If truth prevails, citizens of good conscience will rally. MAGA doesn’t need to label enemies; it needs faith that the movement is working, and that there are more persons of decency than not, who respond to truth — maybe not all at once or in obvious ways — and who may need a bridge to get there.

    My rant for the day. Thanks for listening. 🙂
