Trump is a Genius

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for November 9, 2016 it’s the “Trump is a Genius” edition of the podcast. We’ll discuss the new reality of November 9, 2016. We’ve been wondering what this day was going to be like for *ever*. And it turns out to be better than we could possibly have imagined it! Not only did Trump win, but the sheer energy of the victory carried along almost all of his detractors on the right – at least temporarily – like a tsunami…a temporary tsunami?

We will discuss the change in the electorate that brought this about. Are the blue collar, Reagan Democrat, rust belt “leftover” voters a permanent feature of the new Republican coalition? Are Democrats in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – what Michael Moore called the “Brexit states,” destined to be a vanishing breed just as Democrats in the South have vanished?

I live in New Jersey. Here in Jersey we have crowded roads, corrupt politicians, expensive real estate, ridiculously high property taxes, and a very left leaning legislature. On the plus side, we have great pizza, great bagels, Taylor Ham (which government regulators renamed Pork Roll), and cheap gas. While you still won’t have any trouble […]

Mitt Romney’s speech criticizing Donald Trump wasn’t warmly received by everybody. Some pointed out the Romney is an out-of-touch elitist RINO who just doesn’t “get it,” and he was a terrible candidate. I won’t argue the point. More

A win-win situation: Christie is backing down from Trump, or he is doubling down on Trump. Either way, he will continue to make a fool of himself. More

In other states parents might want to keep BB guns away from their children because they are afraid they might shoot an eye out. In New Jersey the concern is not so much protecting your eyes, but staying out of Rahway State Prison. More

http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/No-Holds-Barred-What-Elie-Wiesel-told-governor-Chris-Christie-404052?utm_source=taboola&utm_medium=referral I found this via Politico and I thought some on Ricochet might find it interesting. At the very least, it depicts Christie as a staunch friend of Israel. More

While I’m aware that many on Ricochet believe this is true: http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/53713/chris-christie-officially-becomes-a-democrat/, Christie did in fact make a pro-economic growth speech in New Hampshire in which he offered a three-tier taxation rate, tax cuts (including a 25% corporate rate), and slammed the Democrats’ policies as far left and anti-growth.

Political Ebola Czar Working Exactly As Obama Intended (UPDATED)

 

After weeks of fumbling and false promises, President Obama appointed an Ebola Czar. Selecting a public face for the crisis response was designed to calm the public, quiet critics and, most importantly, redirect complex and awkward questions away from the President and his press secretary.

Instead of choosing an expert qualified in infectious disease, Obama selected Ron Klain, a longtime political fixer. Klain served as a handler for Vice Presidents Biden and Gore, and parceled out billions of stimulus dollars to politically favored interests.
