Like a lot of conservatives, I was very skeptical of Trump throughout the primary.

I didn't like his style and a lot of his rhetoric, and I had doubts how committed he'd be to conservative and Free Market principles.

But his cabinet pick and policy promises are outstanding, with some exceptions like his protectionism and his meddling in business decisions.

Here's a strong Trump critic who is also largely won over.
Many Republicans (like me) were unimpressed by Donald Trump during the primary season, got behind him once he won the nomination, and now are blown away by his appointments as president-elect.Paul wrote a great post about Trump’s nominations of successful people, businessmen and others, which may have inspired the Michael Ramirez cartoon below.
Michael’s web site reproduced Paul’s post as commentary on this cartoon, titled “Metamorphosis.” It sums up the way a lot of conservatives feel about Trump’s evolution from oddball candidate to president-elect.

A couple of days after the election, while guest hosting the Laura Ingraham radio show, I interviewed Steve Moore, who served as an economic adviser to Trump’s campaign. Steve was positively giddy: he was convinced that on the large majority of issues, free marketeers like himself and Larry Kudlow have Trump’s ear.
Today I attended a lunch sponsored by the Economic Club of Minnesota, which is run by several friends of mine. It was a big event, and Steve Moore was the speaker. What struck me was that Steve is just as excited about the prospects of a Trump presidency today as he was on November 9, if not more so. That is what a series of excellent appointments will do.

They did not give her ALL the debate questions and could have called Trump Hitler a few more times. That would have been more fair.

I borrowed this off another site....but it rings true!

The drawing back from the rush to globalism in Europe and the US has nothing to do with Putin. Borders and culture still matter to some in the West. Putin shares those values. Certainly, it plays into Putin's hands. Whether it is a voluntary rush towards Putin or not is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. It benefits Putin enormously, since he can run roughshod over America and fulfill his life-long dream of 'Making Russia Great Again'. In the meantime, America will continue to get browner and the Dems will continue to win the popular vote (meaning majority support). The Republicans may very well ride the nationalist/populist wave into power for some years, but it will be a Pyrrhic victory since they will have allowed a con man and a con movement to take over their party and bankrupt them ideologically (the pretense of being a moral values party is effectively dead and buried at this point). History will not remember them well.

I personally think Trump is being taken for a ride. He has the Likud party exploiting him, the Alt-Right exploiting him, Putin exploiting him, Wall Street exploiting him. All these players are whispering in his ear, and he doesn't have the qualities to repel them. He thinks that 'Hey, they like me, so I like them!' This is destined to explode in his face.

He needs to stand up against these agendas!

At this stage, I'm observing. Thankful that sack of **** traitorous lying **** HRC didn't win. Hopeful the PC and safe space agenda world is getting the last spittle from the fat lady singing their death song.

But when the rubber hits the road in January, I want to see a strong spined leader leading. I don't want to see someone caving to the usual influence that runs DC. I voted for the guy for two reasons - a vote against business as usual with the Clinton machine - but also a vote against business as usual of the silent mass money influence peddlers that run these goon puppets in DC.

If **** seems to be turning to "business as usual", I'll be as pissed as the left - just for different reasons. Obozo has turned the country and a full generation into a bunch of pussies - I truly want to see America made great again.

Let's hope tRump doesn't double the debt and get us in a quagmire like what happened the last time you people were "winners."

There are still a hundred and fifty soldiers a week dying from sucking on pistol barrels, thanks to bush's ill-advised, ill-managed, corrupt Iraq "war" shenanigans.

This will be the second time this century repukes have held hegemony, and it will likely end - as last time did - in you making effeminate excuses and blaming dems.

AS far as debt, the dems are in a corner. Their mantra has been infrastructure spending. If it happens and debt occurs they can't say ****.

Well gosh, I'd hate to go through a huge economic boom like Reagan brought about with large gains in Americans' incomes. I mean, who would?

Not a Dim, for sure!
It seems clear that Donald Trump will end up with the most conservative Cabinet of any president in my lifetime. And yes, that includes Ronald Reagan...
How did this happen? Maybe Trump, who never seemed all that conservative, has come to embrace conservatism nearly across the board.

Meanwhile, back to Trump's and conservatives excellent prospects.

Thank you Harry Reid for dumping the filibuster! Excellent timing!
Trump with historic opportunity to reshape federal judiciary
By Rick Moran

Donald Trump will enter office in January with an unprecedented opportunity to immediately place his mark on the federal judiciary. According to the Washington Post, Trump will be able to fill more than 100 slots on the federal court at all levels, in addition to the vacant Supreme Court justice. Contrast that with the 54 vacancies President Obama faced when he took office in 2009.
Trump will have a Republican Senate eager to do his bidding - just as long as his nominees are conservative enough to pass muster.
The judiciary also is a top priority for McConnell, who stands ready to help the Trump White House identify candidates and grease the sometimes-laborious Senate confirmation process.
