Why would Donald Trump expect car-chasing, tire-biting, mad-dog Democrats to accept his recent  “suggestions for a border security compromise deal?”

The answer is he didn’t.

Trump knew perfectly well that Nancy Pelosi and her raging Democrat True Believers would reject his proposals. So why did he bother?

What Trump did, and what the Democrats did in return, is all part of their shadow-dance. Like  Japanese Kabuki, or Chinese Opera, it’s about the visuals, presentation, and audience involvement. It’s meant to grab you and make you believe whatever it wants you to believe.

Trump was setting the stage for his next move.

 “The president has once again shown he is willing to work with Democrats to end this shutdown and find a compromise that will secure our border,” Blackburn said.

“This proposal that has bipartisan support would provide the much-needed $5.7 billion for a border barrier.”

Trump wants to show you he’s beeing fair to DACA, and to most of what Pelosi and her Democrats say they want. He wants to show you what Pelosi really is.

Pelosi is stupid. She seems to always play into the Master’s hands. She’s unreasonable.

Nancy Pelosi wants you to think she and her illegals, and her entourage—and you—are being cheated and abused by Trump. She never pulls it off for the uncommitted or fence-sitting voter. Her themes and memes just don’t work. She tries.

This is Kabuki. Chinese Opera. It’s John-Wilkes-Booth theater. While you watch, your mind and emotions are entrapped in the story being told. Your vision is blinded by Distraction. Until the hammer falls, and the shocking plot twist is revealed.

Current mega-themes (or memes) dominate your “today’s news,” as follows:

I’ve been nibbling on popcorn all week as Nancy Pelosi learned a lesson about presidential power and the media was gut checked by the special prosecutor.

While the various shows played out—popcorn, and all—nothing you saw or heard was un-scripted.

Reason should lead you to the truth—that it’s a performance. That Nancy is a liar. But the power of  production distracts your reasoning, so that the purveyor can try and work the “truth” of their magically-induced, sea-change. On you and your world.

All Leftist politics is like that. All Leftist politics is….

A VIEW FROM THE STREET: Does 80 year old, ex-Private Eye, Jeff Friedberg, want to be described as, "a serious observer," a "respectable, civil cataloger of the times," one who should be quoted and spoken of reverently as a competent gatherer of polite, intelligent opinion? 'No, godammit. Because, I'M OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE REAL AMERICA. I want to get a Message out---past the commie bastard liars infesting the corrupt MSM and political ruling class.
