Trump!

This blog is witness to my approval of both candidate Trump and President Trump. I was not a Never Trumper or a RINO. Conservatives felt that he was not conservative enough, but President Trump never was a conservative. He truly wanted/wants to make America great again and followed an agenda that would set many issues to right: defending the second amendment, trade imbalance, rebuilding the military, reversing the Obama Agenda in its entirety, building a wall and so forth. If you've read this blog before, you know that it's a MUCH longer list and I won't belabor the issue in detail.

The Trump Presidency has branded the president as pro-America, lower taxes, and protecting the nation (as we defeat ISIS, engage North Korea diplomatically rather than militarily, etc). His followers, likewise, are people with an American agenda, to benefit all Americans, rather than small knots of people with an axe to grind (the grievances), whether it be the weather, race, sexual preference, or that want to kill babies at the moment of birth.

I don't often lift quotes and drop them onto my blog, but I liked what the author said at the conclusion of a larger article about President Trump. (link)
Donald Trump’s greatest achievement may be the total annihilation of the Democratic Party in its present mutated and degraded form. The Democrats have been allowed to slither to their present state of moral degradation with the witless and spineless collaboration of look-alike Republicans who are easy to defeat, like McCain and Romney, or can be survived, like Reagan and the Bushes, or destroyed, like Nixon. 
Faced with a Trump they could not defeat and cannot destroy, Democrats appear to be entering a frenzy of primal extremism. If the Democrats go to the voters next year as the party of infanticide, open borders, a 70 percent top personal income tax rate, and the practical abolition of private health care, they will vanish more quickly, and with less distinction, than the Whigs, who at least had serious leaders like Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and Abraham Lincoln before their party imploded. This thronging riff-raff of Democratic presidential aspirants couldn’t lead the country across Washington’s Francis Scott Key Bridge, and won’t get an invitation to try.
TRUMP!

  1. You did not mention the Democrat's new plank in their presidential platform: The Green New Deal. That is the kiss of death for any seeker of public office outside of New York, LA or Boston (and Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Austin, you get the point). The rest of us, which are A LOT of us, both Dem and GOP, like our steaks, burgers, airline flights and cars. We like them A LOT. Woe be it to those dopes who campaign on eliminating such things from our lives.

    1. Hence the effort to nullify the Electoral College.

    2. The Green New Deal is discussed in tomorrow's Sunday Sermonette. They'll put us all afoot in an effort to save the planet. The Cortez moron says that we only have 12 years to live, which tells me one thing - PARTY.

    3. Nullifying the Electoral College means civil war. I don't think that the prog are smart enough to know that the police and military would back the revolutionary movement to restore the Constitution. And of course it would mean head shots for Pelosi, Cortez and the rest of those freaks.

  2. Which is why they need many people who can neither speak nor read English, and have nor desire to do so.
    When they have enough of those people, they will allow voter id- because they will help those people "vote correctly". They might not even need the dead voters any more...

  3. It will be interesting to see how the zombies coming out of our schools and the mind washed TV generation react , that is if they realize they will also have their rights and everything else taken away. After all, the "privileged" don't like being like the rest and we all know the "leaders" are the only privileged in a Socialist system

  4. Great quote. I like "frenzy of primal extremism." Of course they're insane.

  5. The GND can be summarized in one line: "Destroy Western civilization, as soon as possible!".

    Hopefully this concept will prove as abhorrent to the greater electorate as it does to us, here (fingers crossed, but not overly confident).

    Trump, politically, is a lot more like Ted Kennedy than not (not a Union man, not a drunk, but still). That the current crop or Marxists in the Democrat Party call him an "extreme, radical right-winger" just shows how batshit crazy the American Left got once they became The Establishment. They did it practically overnight, too.

    1. Klebert: have confidence, there buddy. Even loathsome, evil Democrats like their steaks, their Big Macs, their Corvettes and their Jaguars. And they like flying to see their relatives in distant states. You think that the GND will appeal to THESE guys? Evil as they are? Not a chance in hell, Klebert. This GND is going nowhere in a big hurry. Just watch when the Dems start looking at their internal polls showing them that this idiocy is the kiss of death at the ballot box.

      Buck up, Kle. Dems are evil, true enough, but they are not stupid.

    2. The Green New Deal will assure the re-election of Donald J. Trump and if they keep pushing it, maybe a Trump Dynasty?

    3. But, Fredd - the commie/marxist/libtards do not believe the GND applies to them. It only applies to the dirt peeps. There is a reason they're called useful idiots.

    4. oh, I get it: this wonderful Green New Deal is for THEE! (but not for me...). Where have I heard that before? I'll tell you where: every syllable out of a liberal's mouth. They want everybody else to sacrifice, but they are above it all, don't you know.

    5. Fredd and Adrienne, you both need to respect your betters in the Deep State.

  6. Fool: the Electoral College is here to stay. No way to nullify it, that would take an amendment to the Constitution, 2/3 of all states to ratify. What's the odds that Wyoming, Rhode Island, Alaska, Vermont, ND, SD, and so on and so forth, would piss away their electoral college clout by ratifying an amendment to do away with it?

    Never ever going to happen, no way, no how, regardless of how much pissing and moaning we hear about popular vote totals getting kaibashed by electoral vote totals.

    1. I agree, Fredd. It's a lot of fear mongering by CNN to puff their ratings.

  7. I know one thing for sure, as outlandishly un-American as the democrat platform becomes, the GOP won't win if they don't get off their arses and go vote. Eschewing the good in search of the perfect won't get us a win.

  9. There's a notion that the dems are going nuts (far left) in reaction to Trump.
    Works for me.

    1. The very notion of President Trump seems to drive them into a type of communist frenzy. I don't understand it, frankly, but we see it all around us. It's like pouring salt on a snail, or dumping water on the Wicked Witch.

      TRUMP!

    2. Too bad it doesn't end with the same result.

  10. For the most part I agree regarding Trump with one glaring exception. He is NOT pro Second Amendment...he merely pretends to be to win votes. Under his tenure we saw the enacting of the "bump stock ban"....a rule that is pointless in regards to crime and safety. It is however a thumb in the eye of those who ARE pro 2A.
    This major faux law will cost Trump bigly next year. Trump is now responsible for more anti 2A rules than the hated Obama and could conceivably be primaried. And enough gun owners will not vote for him and just stay home that he will probably lose in Nov even if he does appear on the ballot. In short he screwed the pooch big time and the only way he wins a second term is by pulling an enormous rabbit out of his ass or if the demonrats totally implode.....which while possible is not likely.

    1. There may be some Second Amendment concerns over bump stocks, but I don't think that will change his support in a very significant way. While I agree with you that the ban was ill advised and flies in the face of the Second Amendment, I had never even heard of a bump stock until the mutant opened fire in Las Vegas. I may or may not be typical, but Trump, the populist made a populist move as a sop. Whether or not it actually weakens the Second Amendment legally remains to be seen. I would still vote for Trump over Hillary, or Spartacus, or Occasional Kotex, or Poke-a-haunt-us, or Bloomberg, or anyone else in the Democrat line-up. Staying home is essentially saying, "I VOTED FOR HILLARY".
