It is More Like Trump is re-fighting the Battle of the Bulge; He's Surrounded on All Sides by the Enemy

Is the American Elite Really Elite?

The public no longer believes that privilege and influence should be predicated on titles, brands, and buzz.

By Victor Davis Hanson — March 2, 2017     

Gen. McCauliffe told the surrounding enemy "Nuts!"
Establishment furor over the six-week-old Trump administration is growing.
Outraged New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman recently compared Trump’s victory to disasters in American history that killed and wounded thousands such as the Pearl Harbor surprise bombing and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The New Republic — based on no evidence — theorized that Trump could well be mentally unstable due to the effects of neurosyphilis.
Talk of removing the new president through impeachment, or opposing everything he does (the progressive “Resistance”), is commonplace. Some op-ed writers and pundits abroad have openly hoped for his violent death.
Trump is in a virtual war with the mainstream global media, the entrenched so-called deep state, the Democratic-party establishment, progressive activists, and many in the Republican party as well.
