  • Forgiveness and trust go hand in hand, and somehow Trump has conditioned his acolytes to endlessly forgive his incendiary statements (which send his critics into paroxysms).

    Forgiveness and trust go hand in hand, and somehow Trump has conditioned his acolytes to endlessly forgive his incendiary statements (which send his critics into paroxysms). If only we could forgive our friends and family with such easy — and that the president himself had a taste for broad forgiveness that matched what he’s been a beneficiary of. (And not just forgiving Russia!)

  • Always the insults from the Leftists. Do not appreciate being referred to as an acolyte because I voted and support President Trump. But since you brought it up, Hillary could also be described as cultish scary with her religious-like followers still exhibiting deranged behavior.

  • You guys just don't get it. You hate Trump so bad that it is unconscionable that anyone would trust him, but most of us on the right from center inward have been the recipients of that hatred for many years. For the first time in a long time we feel as though one of us has made it. He's not the man most

    You guys just don't get it. You hate Trump so bad that it is unconscionable that anyone would trust him, but most of us on the right from center inward have been the recipients of that hatred for many years. For the first time in a long time we feel as though one of us has made it. He's not the man most of us wanted for president but he has earned our respect.

    Mostly because he has refused to fold and bow down at the altar of the mighty news media. We have waited for years for someone that will stand up to the main stream media. They (the media) are weak right now because most of them don't know how to research or do real reporting. All they know how to do is regurgitate the propaganda of the left. They've tried to hide the fact that they are socialists and/or Communists. They've become proud of their own biases and they don't know enough to realize that these ideologies are un-American and the death of our freedom.

    Trump is an expert at using their hatred of him to make them look foolish. The press hates him because he doesn't respect them. We hate the press because they don't respect conservatism. For the left and the media, it's gonna be a long 6 years!

  • The history of "charismatics" in leadership roles is not an encouraging one, be it cults, governments, movements or armies.
