Fight on, Trump – “You magnificent bastard”

He Fights. by Evan Sayet
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.
They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.
Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety: has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one the violent take-over of the universities till today.
The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.
During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights…”
General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.
That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted.Â
Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.
Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.
It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.
So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this warrior. He fights for America! Fight on you magnificent bastard!
Those who ask questions about the significance of “man-made global warming” are labeled “climate change deniers.” Using the word “denier” has been pointed out to be an attempt to draw a parallel to “holocaust deniers.” I get the whole propaganda/psyops technique used to drive political messaging.
However, Karma can be a bitch. Those who deny the unprecedented economic boom can easily be classified as “Trump Economy Deniers.”
The top Democrat in the House, Nancy Pelosi actually said tax reform is “Armageddon.” (She thinks it is worse than Iran or North Korea getting Nukes!) Suddenly I hear “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine” in my head. (I paid way too much attention to music growing up.) I suppose Nancy and all the Democrats can be called “Tax Reform Deniers.”
Do Democrats have any credibility or self-respect left? You may not like the President but you should love the results of his policies. President Trump likely has done more for the “War on Poverty” than Democrats have done in the last 53 years since it began. We will have to give it another year or so to get the stats.
Let’s see what kind of denier your relatives are this Christmas. I’m sure the subject will come up in a lot of households. Ask them if they deny any of the below items.
- Economy on steroids – Unemployment, Stock Market, Job Creation, GDP all doing amazingly better.
- Tax Reform – Not what President Trump wanted but he has to rely on the House and Senate for this.
- Bad Regulations Repealed – We never needed these regulations and all they did was stifle our economy.
- ISIS Caliphate Gone – Sure, they will move but they are on the run and that’s a good thing.
- NATO Paying – For the first time they are starting to step up. More money for our people.
- UN Put On Notice – Nikki Haley calls out bad actors and corruption at the United Nations.
- China and Russia Sanction North Korea – First time in history.
- Pipelines Opened – Construction begins and fuel will be safer to transport and will lower prices.
- VA Employees Fired – Over 500 worthless VA employees fired since Jan 20th.
- Vets Get Healthcare – Veterans can now see civilian doctors when wait times are too long.
- Illegal Border Crossings Down – Just by enforcing the law border crossings down by 76%.
- Foreign Drug Gangs Kicked Out – Deportations of illegal gang members is a priority under Trump.
- Country Ban Enforced – A win in the Supreme Court now allows the Country Ban, making us safer.
- Fine For Healthcare Repealed – As part of the tax reform play you are no longer fined for not having Obamacare. $695 per uninsured person and $347.50 per child (up to a $975 maximum) savings.
I’m sure there are many accomplishments I missed. However, if you can deny the great accomplishments of President Trump then you are a Truth Denier.
Scott Uehlinger is the right man for the job. A fellow Veteran with great experience and a Trump supporter. We fully endorse Scott for the 15th Congressional District in Pennsylvania. See a letter from Scott to his fellow Pennsylvanians below:
Hello fellow Pennsylvanian,
I’m Scott Uehlinger, and I am a Republican running for United States Congress in Pennsylvania’s 15th Congressional District.
My story is not one typical of a career politician. It began by pursuing my dream of a military career with an appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and entering the United States Navy as a commissioned officer upon graduation. I saw the world at its best and worst while serving at sea during my four years on active duty. Upon leaving Navy active duty, I returned to sea as a merchant marine still serving our country by delivering fuel to our troops in the Persian Gulf War zone.
Long fascinated by history and foreign cultures, and a desire to continuing serving this great nation, I joined the Central Intelligence Agency in 1996 as an Operations Officer and quickly realized I had an aptitude for languages. In short order, I found myself fluent in four languages including Russian and Spanish. That unique skill enabled me to operate in the former Soviet Union, recruiting spies for the United States for over 12 years.
My career included intelligence operations against Russian, Iranian, terror, and weapons proliferation targets, and I was awarded five exceptional performance awards for my service.
This unfiltered real-world experience, not a career in big government political bureaucracy, is the perspective I will bring to Washington D.C..
In 2014 I retired as a CIA Station Chief and Naval Reserve Officer, settling in Topton (Berks County) with my beautiful wife Veronica and wonderful daughter, Mihaela.
Other accomplishments include a having held a faculty position at New York University, and being a sought-after expert on intelligence and national security matters for Fox News, Sirus XM Patriot, Breitbart Radio, and many others. I also publish a blog called, ‘The Station Chief’ at newsmax.com, and am an NRA Life Member.
A very early supporter of President Trump, in May 2016 I was elected by the voters in PA’s 15th Congressional District to represent them as a Donald Trump Delegate at the Republican National Convention.
Now I have been called to serve again as the voice of the people in the 15th Congressional District. As a non-politician, I will bring a lifetime of national security experience and military discipline to Congress, where I will uphold the interests of our district and our great republic, and join others in returning our federal government to where it rightfully belongs. In the hands of the American people.
However, I cannot do this without your help. We need your support now more than ever because now is the time to put citizen-politicians into office.
Let’s start here in the 15th Congressional District of Pennsylvania!

Christina Hagan is the only pro-Trump candidate in the race for Ohio’s 16th congressional district. Veterans for Trump exists to promote worthy people and causes and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is why we are announcing our official support of Christina Hagan for Congress. Christina is a proven constitutional warrior who will cut through the bureaucratic bog and get to work on the MAGA agenda we voted for and continue to support.
There’s a war going on in the heart of D.C. and President Trump needs a MAGA warrior like Christina to fight with him against the Establishment of the people’s agenda.
I had the opportunity to speak with Christina a few days ago. We submitted her information to our members and she is being endorsed by 100% of our membership! In addition, one of our members, Navyman Norm, volunteered to work for Christiana in Ohio.
I am inserting a portion of a video from YouTube. After speaking with Christina and watching this video I was very impressed with her. Christina fits in with Vets For Trump nicely. She has the courage & heart of a warrior! In the video, you will hear her support and defend the President of the United States knowing it will make her unpopular with a group of women. Christina is clear about President Trump. He is the President the country needs and that he treated her with more respect than many in the GOP establishment.
Please share this post with all your friends. We are spread out across this nation but we can support her by helping to amplify her voice! A voice that needs to be heard by others running for Congress.
Nothing brings people together in the United States like a threat from the outside. It is sad that it takes the threat of war to unite the majority of us. Remember 911? I was very pleased to see Lindsey Graham support President Trump on CNN (of all places).
“I don’t want a war. He doesn’t want a war,” Graham said, referring to Trump. “But we’re not going to let this crazy man in North Korea have the capability to hit the homeland.”
Maybe this is a turning point for the anti-Trump people in the Republican Party. I have little hope that many Democratic leaders will put America first, even in a time of crisis. However, the leadership of the party is NOT the people. I believe most Americans will support President Trump if we go to war.
This is a good time to appeal to your friends who have not been on board with President Trump. The threat from North Korea has been growing under previous administrations. It is now falling into the lap of President Trump. We must all support him.
The decision to go to war will not be an easy thing for the President. It is going to be very sobering. We all know the loss of life will be significant. However, if we wait it will be much worse.
The President is giving China one last chance to fix this. I cannot imagine President Trump will wait too much longer if the Chinese fail to stop the insane North Korean leader. We should all pray North Korean Generals turn on Kim Jong Un and put someone in charge that sees the benefits of peace.
