The Clinton News Network continues to trash Donald Trump at every opportunity, and now Chris Cillizza is accusing the president of having a “fake-it-until-you-make-it strategy”…
This fake-it-until-you-make-it strategy is pure Trump. And not just in politics: It’s a defining element of his life.
There’s a moment in the 2016 “Frontline” documentary on Trump and Hillary Clinton — a must-watch if you haven’t already — in which a former associate of Trump is describing how the real estate magnate handled bad news and bad deals. Paraphrasing, the associate said: “He’ll just declare victory and move on. It’s what he does.”
That approach to life is how Trump has weathered — and even prospered! — amid three bankruptcies and as many marriages.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
