    NYT: The Side that reacts emotionally is not the side that does well

    LOLOL Wow. LOLOL

    “[T]he side that reacts emotionally generally is the side that does not do well”

    All the nyt is doing here is to diminish the president...but what they actually do is to showcase their lack of self awareness.


    As he arrived in France for the annual meeting of the Group of 7 powers, Mr. Trump posted a message on Twitter citing the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977 — a law meant to enable a president to isolate criminal regimes but not intended to be used to cut off economic ties with a major trading partner because of a disagreement over tariffs…

    “In negotiations, and especially in high-stakes negotiations, the side that reacts emotionally generally is the side that does not do well,” he said. “The U.S. side is approaching this from a more emotional side, while China is more calm and calculating.”

    Mr. Trump’s threat to invoke the 1977 act to force companies to leave China would be his most recent unorthodox use of authorities that Congress delegated to the presidency for exigent circumstances.

    The president previously threatened to use emergency powers to impose tariffs on Mexican goods, unless the Mexican government did more to stop migrants from illegally entering the United States. He backed off after Mexico promised to take tougher action.

    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Lefties have been wussifying white men and encouraging them to be "metrosexuals" and "get in touch with their feelings" for 40 years, at least.

    The message that us white men have received is that it is OK to cry, but it is not OK to be white.

    BS!

    The lefties eat their own. I was reading an article the other day which told a story of a "anti-racism" training class where a white woman broke down in tears after learning how she had "oppressed" "people of color" just by being born white!

    The article went on to suggest that white people should leave those "spaces" and process their emotions in private, because doing it in front of "people of color" makes the feelings of white people more primary than the "pain" of "people of color".

    In short they told her, "shut up, bitch!"

    Democrats in congress are like having the Fox construct the hen house then installing the security system.

    The problem with that is that they call President Trump an authoritarian. Calling the Dems the same just sounds reactionary to their ears.

    I was sitting in a college class four years ago and the professor had the audacity to say "communism is dead".

    No it isn't. It has been assimilated by the Democratic Party. The proper term to call Democrats is communists, Bolsheviks, or dare I say it, Stalinists.

    Stalin wasn't a liberal? Che Guevara wasn't a liberal? Richard Nixon wasn't a liberal? President Obama, who hates America, isn't a liberal? The liberal nest includes Democrats, progressives, socialists, communists, and those who call themselves liberals.
