I hope not. Here it is, two days before the Inauguration, and we all know, because Mr. Trump told us, that he has already written his speech. I wouldn't have done that. I would have waited until today, so I could more effectively answer Barack O'Blowhard's smarmy "final presser".
No matter. POTUS45 will say what he is going to say. I put together a little list, in no particular order, of what I hope he DOESN'T say.
Mr. Trump, Rule #1 says "keep your base together". You don't do that with concessions. Here is what I don't want to see:
- No talk of "Healing", please. In the fighting biz, and I fought in the 'Nam and in the Cold War for 22 years in the Air Force, then put in 25 years fighting crime and crooks on the mean streets/rivers with the Multnomah County Sheriff as a Patrol Deputy, you don't offer "healing" until the conflict is concluded. Period. Full Stop. The oppo gets to deal with our best conflict styles until the oppo decides that they don't want to conflict any more. THEN, and only then, do we talk Conflict Resolution. The democraps are still in full-blown conflict mode, hell, a significant number of them are even refusing to attend the Inauguration, and many of them are spouting the idiotarian "he's not MY President". Here's a clue, ass-nuggets, the Hillaroid wouldn't have been your President, either. Nope, no "healing" with the Democrats until they grow up. What would indicate that they want to grow up? For starters, the Party could dump the Hard Left. Plenty of room for the Hard Left with the Commies and/or Socialists/Greens. Yep, dump that faction right out of the Party and start over with Americans, many of whom voted for DJT this year. Yes, those Blue-collar Unionists, who SHOULD be a part of this Great America, because they are going to re-build it, partly for Mr. Trump, but mostly for all of us.
- No Accommodation with Islam. No "Healing" words there, either. Yes, there ARE Imams and Mosques who/which practice the actual RELIGION of Islam, which has it's flaws, (and so does mine), but as of now, those Imams/Mosques refuse to stand up to the small minority of radicals amongst them, so yes, that IS a "Poisonous Tree". Refusing to "Heal" this rift means absolutely excluding any more refugees from Islamic nations until a full vetting dossier can be established on each and every one. It will be expensive, but we must also go back and "vet" every Muslim refugee Obama had admitted in his attempt to give radical Islam cover in this country. A simple hot-line with a "turn them all in, Mr. and Mrs. America" will work for identifying the Obama Hijrah infiltrators.
- No Accommodation for "Sanctuary Cities" (and Counties and States). Withdraw as much Federal Funding from cities refusing to accommodate ALL Federal law, including Immigration, as the Courts will allow. Sound the Deguello on these Leftist enclaves, and that will help with both the illegal immigration issue AND the Obama Hijrah.
- No Accommodation with Marxists at all. Forget the radical professors of Academia, the Black Thugs Matter, Radical Envirowhackos, even the Congressional Black Caucus, which is more about Marx than Equality these days. Just let the fools drool and babble in their beards, ride their bikes naked and pub-crawl in baby-sleepers.
No, Mr. Trump, first you establish your strength, and when you have proven that strength to Make America Great Again, then you can think about healing some rifts. Until then, those rifts are tearing the Left apart, not our #MAGA coalition, so let the rifts continue.
