“Lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
“Numbers don’t lie.”
Which of the two quips is true of Ann Coulter’s March 13th column, Trump by the Numbers?
I haven’t written off this administration. Four reasons for that. One: his appearance on the primaries scene in 2015 that humiliated the ruling class and their cuckservative collaborators. Two: his astounding, and some would say providential, 2016 election victory that inspired the world. With the perspective of time, those two things alone will be understood as revolutionary. Three: I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes, which is where the real action’s at. It’s impossible to tell whether Trump is beaten or selling out, or dismantling the enemy’s infrastructure, or playing possum, or buying off the adversary. Opinions are abundant but those are just opinions. Four: his first term isn’t over yet. The overthrowing of predatory globalism isn’t over yet. The 21st century has barely begun.
On the other hand, morale is low. See Ann Coulter’s numbers. A normal person cannot listen to his leader call for more legal immigration and not lose some of his faith in the future. The United States is observably becoming more, not less, invaded. It’s a testament to the malaise, that the only event over the past year to disspell Western man’s despair over his destiny, to alleviate his feeling of political impotence, to pump a shot of testosterone into his veins, was the past weekend’s operation on the opposite side of the world.
