Jordan Peterson Reveals His Hopes for the Midterm Elections, Defends President Trump

He hit the nail on the head.

Published

The ever popular psychology professor and modern day speaker of concrete truths, Jordan Peterson, recently came to the defense of President Donald Trump, stating that during his time in office he’s made some positive headway.

Peterson, who is originally from Canada not only backed the president, but also delivered a rather harsh message to the Democratic Party, stating that he hopes they get “walloped” in the midterm elections.

Peterson, who has been on a tour promoting his best-selling book, “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos,” made the remarks at a packed house at The Cambridge Union in the United Kingdom.

“I’m hoping the Democrats get walloped,” Peterson told Innes-Smith ahead of his address at the Union, adding that he believes the party is determined to appeal to a “tiny radical faction of the voter base.”

“I don’t think they’re going to wake up until they get defeated,” he added.

Peterson went on to discuss Trump and said that it’s nothing short of absurd to call Trump “far-right.”

“It’s ridiculous to label Trump as far-right; he’s certainly an anomaly,” Peterson said. “As a personality, he’s more of a libertarian. He’s not a traditional Republican, and he’s certainly not a traditional right-wing figure apart from the fact that he has this large populist base.”

Peterson went on to express his disgust with folks who are trying to use Trump as a scapegoat for the recent Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.

“We should leave the racist label to people who deserve it,” Peterson warned, “otherwise, we debase the currency. Once everyone’s a racist, well — that’s the end of that as a useful epithet.”

The bestselling author also stated that he couldn’t understand why President Trump has become such a controversial figure and so hated by folks in the United States. He hypothesized that it might have something to do with the fact that Trump is wealthy.

“The one thing the intellectual elite will never understand is that if you are poor you can become rich, but if you are not part of the establishment elite, you will never become part of it,” Peterson explained.

“Wages are rising, unemployment is down to levels not seen since the early Sixties and the economy is growing at a phenomenal rate,” Peterson said. “Trump is noisy and bombastic and he has a narcissistic edge, but he certainly hasn’t turned out to be the absolute disaster that his enemies predicted. He’s even making headway in North Korea.”

Peterson is clearly a smart man and a much needed voice of reason in the world of academia that has sold common sense down the river in exchange for an ideology that is both immoral and unsustainable.

Here’s to hoping he continues to challenge young and old alike to apply a little critical thinking to their current worldview.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

on

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

on

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
