Is war with N Korea inevitable.  I suspect it is if Trump is Trump and "fat Boy" remains "Fat Boy." (See 2 below.)
The uncivil left would have you believe Trump is the brute.

The left is a ball of repugnant intimidation. Whether they realize it or not the radical leftists are proving that Trump is tough, not likely to bend/cave and , in time, the nation's admiration for him will rise even more.

As for the mass media they are digging their grave.  When you throw dirt it eventually is used on your own grave. (See 3 below.)
Obama remains sinister and intent on destroying America. His dream of transforming America mostly came about because American's were afraid and too intimidated to challenge and rebuke him. They feared being called racist.. (See 4 below.)

Obama is a master at using the words which suggest he favors what he most opposes like "obeying the rule of law" etc. (See 4a below.)

Why the generation after millennials will vote Republican

ERIE, Pa. — Max Bloomstine has a positive view of the nation’s growing diversity, believes the American dream is attainable (but doesn’t believe he’s entitled to it) and is more into the “we” instead of the “me.”
He is politically independent but leans conservative, attends church on a regular basis, and views his parents — not sports figures or celebrities — as role models.

Right now, though, two things weigh heavily on his mind: where to attend college next year (it’s either going to be the University of Pittsburgh or Rochester) and working on a summer job.

“I am a good entrepreneur when it comes to online gaming administration,” he said
Say hello to Generation Z, the most recent to come of age. It is the youth of America, with its oldest members in their early 20s.

Sometimes referred to as the iGeneration, as they literally grew up with technology and social media in their hands, they are poised to dramatically change the cultural, economic and political landscape for some time to come.

Born between 1996 and 2010, they are very similar to their Gen X parents, that small, pragmatic generation that fell between the larger baby boomer and millennial generations.

“Gen Z actually like and trust their parents, who have been transparent with them, much more than any generation before,” said Jeff Brauer, a political science professor at Keystone College in suburban Scranton, Pa., who has produced one of the first comprehensive studies on the next generation.

Analyzing research from Wright State University in Ohio on 1,200 Generation Z students at 15 colleges and universities across the country, Brauer also used exit polling from CNN and census data to draw his conclusions.
‘Gen Z actually like and trust their parents, who have been transparent with them, much more than any generation before.’
 - Jeff Brauer, political science professor

“They are not as impressed with fame — celebrities, athletes, politicians — as are their predecessors, since fame in their lifetime has become rather easy to obtain with social media and reality TV,” Brauer added.
Generation Z is diverse. They are only 55 percent white and will be the last majority-white generation in America. And they have the most positive outlook toward the nation’s growing diversity of any previous generation.

Generation Z is a product of 9/11, global terrorism, school shootings, perpetual wars, the Great Recession, high unemployment and constant budget cuts. Because of all that, they are cautious, even fearful, of an uncertain world and economy. Security and safety are very important to them, as they have grown up in such an unstable society.

They are distrustful of “big” employers because they’ve seen good people, who did all the right things, get laid off from longstanding jobs and careers. They are cautious with finances, always looking for the best deals and the best value.

“When I shop, which I do almost exclusively online, I compare everything until I get the best quality for the least cost,” said Bloomstine.

Generation Z is also more religious than preceding generations — attending organized weekly church services at about twice the rate of millennials, Generation Xers and baby boomers.

They are interested in issues that involve themselves but that also impact the broader community — education, employment, security and the environment all concern them.

“Politically, Generation Z is liberal-moderate with social issues, like support for marriage equality and civil rights, and moderate-conservative with fiscal and security issues,” said Brauer.

“While many are not connected to the two major parties and lean independent, Gen Z’s inclinations generally fit moderate Republicans.”

The Republican Party, if it plays its cards right, could make lasting inroads with this generation, even at an early age — something the GOP has struggled with for decades.

Had he been able to vote last November, Bloomstine definitely would have picked Donald Trump for president.
“I was not old enough to vote for him, but I was very engaged and informed all throughout the election,” 

Bloomstine said. “I liked most his independence from the political parties and his willingness to challenge them when he felt they were not serving the American people.”

If Trump runs in four years, would Bloomstine vote for him? “As long as he continues to be himself, absolutely.”

Last year was the first presidential election in which Generation Z voted, according to Brauer, “yet there was virtually no attention paid to this demographic.”

In fact, in almost every case, its members were simply lumped in with their significantly different counterparts, the millennials, in the 18-to-29 age group.

“This was disingenuous and unfortunate and didn’t give the true picture of the election,” said Brauer. “Looking at the data, there was virtually no attempt to separate these two very different generations of voters.”
Brauer explains that, from 2012 to 2016, Democratic candidates lost 5 percent of the youth vote nationally (down from 60 percent to 55 percent). In Florida, Democrats’ margin of victory among the young dropped 16 percentage points. In both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the drop was 19 points. In Wisconsin, 20 points.
“It is unlikely that such significant drops were simply due to the more liberal millennial generation changing their minds from one election to the next,” said Brauer.

“It is much more likely the precipitous drops were due to the more conservative Generation Z being able, for the first time, to express their political inclinations, especially in the economically hard-hit swing states.”

Therefore, Generation Z possibly had a major, yet completely overlooked, impact in this historic election. “Generation Z voters were likely attracted to Trump because of his strong stances on national security and economic recovery — the main concerns of that generation,” said Brauer.

“This generation is different, and they are about to have a profound impact on commerce, politics and trends,” Brauer concludes. “If politicians and business leaders aren’t paying attention yet, they better, because they are about to change the world.”
2) Trump Is Drawing Up Military Options Against North Korea

President Trump’s national security adviser said Wednesday that the administration is considering a wider range of strategies on how to deal with North Korea, including the military option.
“The threat is much more immediate now and so it’s clear that we can’t repeat the same approach – failed approach of the past,” H.R. McMaster, the adviser, said during a security conference with Homeland Security Chief John Kelly.
He said it would be insanity to continue to do the same thing the U.S. has done for years and expect a different result.
McMaster’s comments come a day before Trump is scheduled to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. South Korea’s new leader vowed to stand firmly with Trump against North Korea, downplaying his past advocacy for a softer approach toward the isolated regime.

The Most Abused President in History

There's no doubt that President Trump is the most abused president in modern history – more so than George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Richard Nixon, all of whom caught their share of flak.  That's the judgment of Fox News's Brit Hume, who sees today's partisanship as "the most intensely hostile political atmosphere" in memory – in his case, a memory stretching back almost 50 years.  Hume believes that the treatment of President Trump is "the most biased coverage" he's ever seen.

The bias continues in spite of the brief détente following the shooting of Steve Scalise and other GOP lawmakers and associates this month.  Ava Navarro's labeling of the president as a "crazy lunatic, 70-year-old man-baby" is yet another uncivil attack from the left – in this case, one that appears to combine unwarranted abuse with blatant age bias.  Would the left have questioned Hillary's abilities, or those of Bernie Sanders, on the basis of age?

I wonder how Trump can stand it.  The president must be incredibly thick-skinned or possessed of a truly magnanimous soul.  Although he often defends himself by striking back, it's hardly proportional.  For every Trump tweet, there are thousands of attacks from the liberal media.

It's clear that the left is grasping at straws and has now descended into name-calling, the lowest form of rhetoric.  If the attacks were based on substance, they might be taken seriously.  But "crazy lunatic"?  That is the stuff of an affronted seven-year-old, not of an educated adult.

Now that Russiagate has unraveled and "collusion" has gained little traction, what's next?  More name-calling, accompanied by an endless string of groundless charges, all of them the purported basis for impeachment – everything from continuing refusal to release his tax returns to receiving "foreign emoluments."

The progressive website "" hosts plenty of this sort of talk.  Nate Silver recently pointed to what he views as the president's "escalating pattern of [alleged] misconduct," whatever that is supposed to mean.  At least Silver noted that the misconduct is "alleged."

That doesn't stop Silver from proclaiming that there's already a basis for impeachment and speculating that Congress "will probably wind up with more before long."  Nor does it stop him, in a very long-winded discussion of impeachment history, from noting that impeachment is "more likely if Democrats take over the House in 2019" and that Trump's conviction is possible if enough Republican senators come to view the president as a political liability.  Or if Trump continues to antagonize members of Congress.  Or if Trump becomes unpopular with voters...

Silver admits at one point that he is "deep into speculative territory."  That's where the left dwells these days.  They were stunned by Trump's election victory, and they've been in denial ever since.  Their response is abuse, profanity, obstruction, and fantasies of impeachment, or worse.

Barring impeachment, for example, Silver points to the fact that "eight presidents died during their term," a statement that seems highly provocative and inappropriate – but apparently not to Silver's readers at five thirty eight.  The ubiquity of such violent fantasies is a comment on the current state of the progressive movement.

The American media, including social media, is overwhelmingly anti-Trump.  The heart of the matter is that the left does not wish to make America great again.  Leftists wish to see America diminished.  They do not favor "America First," "more and better jobs for American workers," "lower taxes for individuals and businesses," "repealing and replacing Obamacare," "greater national security," "immigration security," and other Trump initiatives.  They favor fewer good jobs, higher taxes, less military spending, open borders, and bowing to the world outside the U.S.

The media are guilt-ridden over our national history, as they see it, of racism and class oppression.  They despise the middle class, and they live in a politically correct nightmare of benefiting from any sort of privilege or unfair advantage.  On the contrary, they are intent on conferring unfair advantages to minorities and the socially oppressed, especially when this diminishes the opportunities of the white middle class.

Trump stands in the way of this agenda of relinquishment and repudiation.  Once the American people, with Trump's help, turn their back on the politics of white guilt and income inequality, the progressive movement will deflate like a punctured balloon.  That's why they are in a panic to stop him.
And that's why they must insist that Trump is the worst president in history.

Ironically, the better Trump does, the worse he can be made to appear with voters on the left.  Already, American mining and energy sectors have seen a resurgence, but what should be good news is bad, according to the left, whose intent is to kill off both sectors.  Already, key alliances have been strengthened with Britain and Saudi Arabia, among others, and border security has been improved.  But that's bad news for those who wish to weaken the U.S.  Already, economic projections have turned up – more bad news for the left, because with wage growth, more Americans are entering the much despised middle class. 
Yes, Trump is "guilty" of restoring jobs to the middle class, increasing national security, and blocking terrorism, to say nothing of proposed health care reform and tax cuts.  But in the eyes of the left, he is guilty of something worse: blatant disregard for what constitutes the moral basis of the American progressive movement – that is, political correctness and class guilt.  Trump's nonchalant disregard for the left's condemnation of America is the unforgivable sin.

Without race, class, and gender, and the guilt that for many attaches reflexively to each of these categories, the American left has no basis for existence.  The same goes for the mainstream media, much of which, as Brit Hume put it, has abandoned the idea that they should be "neutral" in presenting the news.  Hume is correct in suggesting that the media are now largely incapable of fair reporting.

Far from it.  Like the left in general, the mainstream media will continue portraying Trump as the worst president in history – even as he shows promise of becoming one of the best.

4) Organizing for Action

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and for the first time in history , suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for
Action",  (OFA) 30,000 strong working to disrupt everything that our current president is trying to do.  
This goes against our Democracy , it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing.
It goes against our Constitution, our laws , and the process established over 200 years ago. If this is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run.  What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?  If this does not scare you, then we
are in worse trouble than you know.
It is explained below.  Do your part , read it and at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against.
We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT  TARGET" for our enemy!
Article from the New York Post.......
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America.
The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues, and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA). OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and
politically active courts are providing the leverage for this
OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. 
Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual
equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.
OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows:
"Organizing is the building block of everything great we've
accomplished. Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities-and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines...Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond."
OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the
ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement.

In short, it's the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic.  AMERICA
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA  will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president "will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House." Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of  non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest
(more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office near the White House.
Think about how this work, for example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; violence follows- all emanating from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.
If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

4a)  Obama Warns Against an 'Aggressive Kind of Nationalism'

Former President Barack Obama has spoken on the dangers of nationalism and President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement, without actually mentioning him by name.  

Obama spoke to the Fourth Congress of the Indonesian Diaspora while visiting Jakarta Saturday, according to the Hill.

"We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics," Obama said. "We start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism. We start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who don’t look like us or practice the same faith as us."

He also spoke about the importance of the Paris Climate Agreement.

"In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history to fight climate change," Obama said.

The former president also spoke on preserving religious freedom and freedom of the press in America saying, "If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue."
