Trump is the “un-Obama” of our time.

A little more than a year into President Donald Trump’s term and much remains the same. Liberals still claim he is the modern incarnation of Hitler or Satan. Never-Trumpers continue to wait for the Administration to implode. Even so, if you look beneath the surface of rhetoric and denial, it quickly becomes clear the President Trump has become the “un-Obama”, acting “to reduce government employment, deregulate, sanction radical expansion of fossil-fuel production, question the economic effects of globalization on Americans between the coasts, address deindustrialization, recalibrate the tax code, rein in the EPA, secure the border, reduce illegal immigration, or question transnational organizations.”

According to the National Review, Obama was the first modern president to figure out how to prevent the national economy from growing 3% in a single year. He did so through “the efforts of a 24/7 redistributionist agenda of tax increases, federalizing health care, massive new debt, layers of more regulation, zero-interest rates, neo-socialist regulatory appointments, expansionary eligibility for entitlements, and constant anti-free-market jawboning that created a psychological atmosphere conducive to real retrenchment, mental holding patterns, and legitimate fears over discernable success.” Add to that the militarization of agencies like the IRS and the DOJ, not to mention the EPA. Is it any wonder so many look at the Feds with suspicion and fear these days?

Despite his detractors—or perhaps to spite them—Trump has acted to undo the damage done by the Obama Administration. He withdrew from the Paris Accords. He thumbed his nose at the Palestinians by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He appointed Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis as Secretary of Defense.

If that wasn’t enough to cause our allies and enemies alike to sit up and take notice, President Trump appointed H. R. McMaster as his National Security Advisor. McMaster hasn’t minced words about the danger North Korea presents to the United States and it allies. In fact, over the weekend, he met with representatives of South Korea and Japan to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

No more taking a soft stance on defense or on the economy and it shows. Trump has proven to not only be the opposite of Obama, he has acted to push back against the surge toward not just progressivism but socialism we’ve been winding our way toward for so long.

“One would have thought that all Republican presidents and presidential candidate would be something like the antitheses to progressivism. In truth, few really were. So given the lateness of the national hour, a President Nobama could prove to be quite a change,” writes Victor Hanson Davis.

As Hanson wrote in another article, “We’ve gone from hard left, under Obama, to hard right, under Trump. Judge the ideologies by their results.” While he feels we have to wait the full four years of Trump’s, hopefully, first term in office, I suggest we are already seeing the results. For the first time in years, we are standing up to our enemies instead of bowing in their presence. The new tax laws—you know, the ones the liberals said wouldn’t help anyone but the rich—has seen company after company pledging to invest more money into research and infrastructure while, at the same time, giving employees bonuses and, in some cases, increasing their hourly wage. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take the Nobama over Obama and sleep well doing so.

    Every time I look at my investments for retirement, I am reminded that President Trump is Nobama.

      Same here. I keep wondering if the nay-sayers will keep up their screeches of “Hitler!” and “Satan!” throughout the four years of this term? Probably, but I keep hoping they finally lose their “voices”.

  • Appalled By The World says:

    In all honesty it wouldn’t have taken much to be the antithesis of the treasonous and verminous Nerobama (MCF)-but Trump has taken the ball and run with it-far far away. The more the Progs hate him, the more I like him because then I know he’s doing things right. If anything I find him to be too restrained at times as he has put up with more BS in one year than any president ever had in eight-I don’t think I would have held my tongue as much as he has given the antics of the usual suspects.

  • John says:

    Secretary Mattis’ actual callsign was “Chaos”. He does not appreciate the “Mad Dog” moniker, because he is so far from that.


    I get up happy every day and thank God for Trump.

    Trump has and is doing a great many things for the country to overturn the excellent job that Obama did when he tried to destroy America.

    From the economy to immigration to international efforts to adherence to the constitution we are now moving in the right direction.

    Go TRUMP!!!
