I'M SO HAPPY TOO!!!!

Thank you, Dwight, for that much-needed dose of sanity in my life. Nearly all of my friends have been deluded by the current administration and the media.

You've heard of the 5 stages of grief? I have discovered the 5 stages of realizing you live in a microcosm of brain-dead, socialist lemmings. Here was my first (Facebook) reaction after the election: "I'm so energized by this win and so proud that we got it right yesterday, but we do need to bond together and use every resource that we have, Republican, Democrat and Independent, in order to rebuild our strength and solidify our independence. Let's make America great again!!!"

Within a day, I went from that level of positivity and exuberance to this: "The MSM should be ashamed... People are hunkering down and expecting the world to end. They are waiting for President Trump to round up every minority in the country and ship them out. They are so pitifully deluded..."

In another day, to this: "This is why we need to be really careful, guys. Conservatives, we have a responsibility now to stop the fear that's been coming from all sides and make people realize that we are not monsters and we don't hate everyone."

Later that day, to this: "There are nasty people on both sides, guys. It's important to remember that arrogance, ignorance, hypocrisy and divisiveness are not exclusive to a political party. Let's stop fighting. The only "losers" yesterday are those who didn't take the time to make an educated decision and go vote. And of course the media, and the Hollywood elite - who REALLY deserved to be exposed."

And finally (after being flamed and threatened to the point of complete apathy), to this: "Thank you for completely ruining my faith in our ability to unite as Americans. You narcissistic, sanctimonious douchebags. I give up. This is what happens when you raise kids to be special little snowflakes. This is why millennials can't cope with the real world. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang - with a microaggression."

So optimism, concern, urging, deflection, and disgust. 5 stages of dealing with modern American liberals.

Now that I've gone through that, I'm back to being hopeful that we'll rise out of this terrible situation the last eight years have produced. I agree with Dwight that the media needs to admit its role in pushing the establishment progressivism and propaganda that gave us Obama and nearly stuck us with Clinton. I read an interesting opinion piece on this subject earlier today. And as much as I liked and supported Marco Rubio in the primary, I had to agree - An establishment conservative candidate would never have had the power to usurp the collective media in concert with corrupt establishment Democrats. Crazy Bernie Sanders with his hordes of whiny millennial supporters didn't stand a chance against Hillary, and the weakening, splintered GOP we once knew was not going to fare any better. Trump has started a 'national populist' movement, a pragmatic but unencumbered conservative movement not restrained by the broken DC political system, attractive to the rust belt working class as well as the disenchanted moderate-conservative middle class, as well as traditional, constitutional conservatives such as myself - and even since his very recent election, Trump is showing his true colors; he is not thoughtless, high-strung maniac the GOP establishment originally feared. And the more he asserts his rational and cooperative side, the more our now Republican (thank God!) congress is going to listen to him and get things accomplished. I want to see a stronger military, secure borders, law and order, a push for nationalism and respect for authority (especially among the younger generation), and complete economic reform, starting with the dissolution of Obamacare, corporate tax easement and the retraction of failed trade policies. I'd like to feel secure in my job and stop seeing my colleagues laid off as their jobs are outsourced to India and China... I want government to work to sever the partnership between the Democratic party, the media, Hollywood and academia to influence popular perceptions of politics and social issues - which will hopefully force people to start thinking for themselves. I want the government to fund non-partisan public education initiatives via TV and internet outlets to demonstrate how and why our system of government works. People just don't get it now. We are going to work to improve our relations with other world powers while showing a strong enough presence of leadership to earn back the level of respect that has been decimated by Obama, with his submission to Islamic terror and his apology tours... That's my hope for the next eight years. We'll see how it plays out, but I am cautiously optimistic.

And I'm happy that Dwight is happy. :)

Just one thing I forgot to mention... I can't take Shep Smith either (I think he does have fake eyelashes!... and wears way too much makeup for a man...) However, it's not just the news media that's to blame for the subliminal (and often overt) left-wing messages. It's entertainment media, too. Almost every show I watch has a progressive/liberal, anti-conservative message.

I always liked Kiefer Sutherland and the show "24" so naturally I was excited when his new show, "Designated Survivor" was introduced this season. It's a show about a HUD Secretary who is designated to remain outside the Capitol for a congressional session in which the President is speaking. Terrorists hit the Capitol, killing everyone except the HUD Secretary who then must be sworn in as President, and make drastic decisions related to the terrorist groups - yada, yada, yada. It's a great plot, great acting, and exciting action and suspense in every episode. Honestly, I don't know who else watches it but I'm sure it's a popular show. My husband and I DVR it every week. Now it's political, and I get that. But EVERY scene has a little nugget of 'progressive thinking' in it. The governors who want to keep refugees from coming in are the bad guys. It wouldn't be so bad that it sends these little messages, if it didn't so precisely mirror what's going on in our country right now. The whole show is a left-wing argument. So last night I'm watching, and there's a scene where the President and his wife, an immigration lawyer, are discussing a plane full of refugees sitting on the tarmac (in Michigan, I think) waiting for a decision to be made about whether they'll be allowed to deplane. Kiefer explains to his wife that he has to take both sides of the argument into consideration. Mind you, the Capitol was just bombed and all of Congress, and the President, assassinated by terrorists from this country. Kiefer suggests that there is not a good enough vetting process. Wife says the vetting process is so good, most Americans won't pass the test. Then she goes on to question why Americans are the only ones who have a problem accepting refugees (women and children - whine, whine - those racist Republican jerks...) She says "What about the millions of refugees taken in by Europe. And nothing has happened there!" I almost spit out my tea. The problem is, people are watching this crap and believing it parallels actual events in the world. And for the most part, it does! So why wouldn't they believe refugees are harmless after watching this show? Why are Americans such selfish jerks that we won't let Syrian refugees in? It's those darn Republicans. Refugees have never been a problem anywhere else... Smh.

BTW, Angela Merkel has spoken out against Trump's refugee and immigration policies. I don't know much, but I'm pretty sure if Angela Merkel disagrees with your immigration plan, you're doing something right!

It is good to hear and see you all so happy!

The Myron Ebell pick to head the transition team at the EPA is sure to endear the Libertarians (and Conservatives) to him. The number one thing that the EPA could use is a staunch Libertarian, governmental non-interference unless there is a compelling interest, to get them back on track. Without question, the smaller farmers are thrilled. I am absolutely tickled. :)

To me, this appointment signals that Trump is reaching across the aisle at the outset. The Libertarian groups that I follow online are definitely warming to him.

After eight years of put downs and accusations that most in "flyover country" are xenophobes and morons, no one should be shocked that Trump won the election. Our current President's delight in seeing coal miners put on the unemployment lines via his policies turned many in mining areas away from the Democrats. The fishermen in Alaska were looking at an end to generations at sea with Hillary's plans. People voted for their jobs and their honor. Ridiculing the farmers, ranchers, factory workers, and others who perform hard work as Obama, his administration of elites, and the MSM did is the way to divide a people. And, we are greatly divided. That will all be passed to Trump very soon. He has his work cut out for him.

I'm glad he's happy. :D I admit that I stopped the recording after a while because I'm not knowledgeable enough about the subject.

It made me wonder though if he ever will make non political podcasts again. You know space, social/psychological etc I really liked those!

I, too, would like to see Dwight get back on the podcasting train again, and with subjects that are other than political. Quite frankly, I'm wholeheartedly tired of hearing "BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA" repeated over and over again. Yea, yea, got it, already. It's a vitriol eats up so many of his 'casts that I can't even go back and listen to previous 'casts. It's too much negativity in an already-difficult life, and I don't need the added fuel on my depression issues.

Dwight is an intelligent, educated and, in the end, a very nice man. He has so much more to offer in terms of educating people in, as you said, "space, social/psychological, etc." Things that don't polarize people.

I don't think being passionate about your political or moral convictions makes you any less of a nice person.

This is a political thread under a political topic header and every podcast that is posted comes with the "don't listen to this if it is going to upset you" disclaimer. I don't think it's fair to join a discussion thread on the show and say you don't like the show and want him to stop doing it. I think a better place to request a different flavor of podcast would be on a separate thread...

That said, I know I post some provocative rants when I respond to podcasts. It's just an immediate reaction - stream-of-consciousness, meandering thoughts - and I don't always choose my words well. If they are upsetting to *anyone* I will stop. It certainly isn't my intent to stress people out. There are a lot of very smart people on this forum and I was just enjoying the banter.

I really enjoy and look forward to these shows. I don't *think* I'm the only one...

Dwight, please, PLEASE don't stop the HM World Review! It's the main reason I joined the forum in the first place.

Oh no I don't mean stop! I just stopped the recording because it really went over my head, not because I hated it. I don't mean he shouldn't do these podcasts anymore.

I would like some non political podcasts too though.

I love to hear Dwight's insights on politics. :)

Certainly those outside of the US would not be as up on the political scene as those of us following the news in the US on a daily basis. Discussions of internal politics of other countries goes over my head rather rapidly.

One of the reasons I find these podcast so delightful, even when Dwight is wrong :lol:, is that he has a keen mind and he uses it. There are loads of mindless politics out of the acting field. We all know that. If one wants to hear from that rather large group, it is as simple as turning on a television or going to YouTube and hitting play on the first videos available under Politics.

I would like to hear Dwight's thoughts on some of the appointments that Trump is making. There is also the rather tricky, and somewhat disturbing, issue of potential conflicts of interest with all of Trump's international businesses. Here, we are dealing with someone who has worked to make his name itself the big draw. Argentina may well have decided in Trump's favor, but it is hard to know that just watching from afar. Since his election the brand name "Trump" has certainly gained in value. Usually business ventures are put into a blind trust. Doing that in this case seems tricky at best.

Dwight was interested in unusual or unexplained phenomena a number of years ago, including UFOs as I recall. That is a topic that I find fascinating.

Honestly I don't know much about the EPA leadership changes. He mentioned a lot of regulations are about to be cut in favor of creating more jobs and becoming more energy-independent. I'm on board with that.

I think it's interesting that nearly everything the media predicted hasn't happened. Isn't it funny how the media fell all over themselves the night of the election, screaming about the stock market plummeting because of the Trump win? And within days the Dow was at its highest level since 2011.

The cabinet appointments are a great topic for discussion. Particularly Jeff Sessions and Nikki Haley. Reince Priebus was the perfect choice for Chief of Staff, but I was floored that he's even considering Romney. I think he is trying to pull the far-right wing to the center and mend fences with the establishment Republicans who didn't always support him. But I'm just guessing. I'm sure he has other motives related to the specific people chosen. It's refreshing that he doesn't have any favors to repay. He's making reason-based choices based on what seem to be "job interviews" he's holding, and not just doling out favors the way others have done.

He's creating a boardroom cabinet, as opposed to a caucus. Very interesting!

And Trump has just chosen a third general for his cabinet. I'm very OK with this! :)
