So let’s look at the Clinton non-inditement…..
Not a single one of us had any expectation that Hillary would be indicted. None of us really believed that. It’s how she got to the top of the primaries. In a real world her party would have kept her from participating until after this date. And then they would have voted her down as being incompetent.
But this is Clinton’s world. And the rules are not their rules.
Banana Republic is what we have right here folks and it will continue and become worse without some massive tilt. And that’s where Trump comes in. Best candidate? Not by a long shot. A loooonnnnnng shot. But, is there another candidate out there that would be willing to point out all the Clinton flaws and bring them to the light of day beyond a holiday weekend? There is not. (though it’s early – so I keep hope alive)
And for me – one person out of millions? Yesterday morning I was still planning on ignoring calls to help walk the precinct. Today I will not. Yesterday afternoon I was able to look a friend in the eye and say, yes – I WILL be voting for Donald Trump. Not because I agree with his policies, his manners, or his hair, but because he is currently the only person able to stop this runaway train of political corruption most clearly noted by Hillary Clinton in many, many ways but by the email scandal yesterday. Hillary’s judgement is clearly not conducive to being president.
To be clear – I can’t stand Trump.
To be clear – the one good thing about Trump is that he is at heart a lefty, which means he knows their tactics. Now I don’t actually believe he’s clever enough to use tactics, but I do believe after being raised a lefty, that it comes automatically to him.
So this judge thing with Judge Curiel……Trump is questioning his ability to give Trump a fair trial. Why? Because of the politics of race. From the left, it is assumed that all white men are biased. It’s assumed that white police officers are biased. It’s assumed that before Sotomayer was on the court that it, by definition was biased. But now it has a wise Latina woman so it’s not, even though she will just take the left’s position every time. There is no evidence that she is not biased. It’s assumed that Tea Partiers are racists.
So why – when Trump works with these basic assumptions, he’s the bad guy? He isn’t. He’ll get through this. Judge Alberto Gonzales even agrees with him.
Republicans are telling Trump to “get on the page” or to apologize etc. Trump is digging in Democrat style. In the past Republicans have been respectful and believing in the rule of law. No one of authority questioned AG Holder NOT pressing charges against those Black Panthers intimidating voters. The media did not question Holder’s views. Instead we respectfully stepped aside.
The one good thing Trump is doing is NOT respectfully stepping aside. Is he racist? Pretty much. But aren’t all white people racist anyway? Why not work to get a sympathetic racist white judge to hear his case?
Aside to the GOP: Quit telling the man what to do. He’ll only do the opposite and you’ll end up looking like an idiot for thinking you can control him. You don’t know how to win the presidency. You don’t know what Trump’s appeal is. You only have a media echo chamber telling you why Trump can’t win. If he can’t, he can’t. Let the people know the man and decide. Quit trying to hid him.
Our other option is already a known figure. We need to assess real risks, not the caterwauling of the left.
It intrigues me about Trump how none of these “massive fails” of his, never cause him to fall. Perhaps with him absolutely refusing to work the room following the rules of civilized behavior that only fall to the right is doing the trick.
Time will tell.
While I’ll end up voting for whoever the nominee is, Jeff has taken all of my current feelings, bottled them up in good writing and shared with the rest of us.
For those of you complaining about not having your vote for Trump count, it did. It counted in your caucus when you sat back and did nothing when they were looking for folks to go to the county assembly. Then it counted again at the county assembly when you voted for who you wanted to send to the state convention.
Oh – wait, many people didn’t want to go to the state convention. It’s way over there in Co Springs. Oh well, we have enough volunteers, let’s go drink beer.
Now – NOW you are asking for the state to change the rules so that your guy can win. Bullpucky. You change the rules now and suddenly I am cheated. Let it go. You lost Colorado.
Your man is NOT organized. He doesn’t ‘hire the best people’, and he apparently can’t read. Nor can his supporters.
I’m talking to you Drudge.
(I have no idea how this might have gone if the local primaries had held votes)
Trump says a lot of ridiculous things, but his statement on abortion was one of the least and one of the MOST respectful of women that he’s made.
The first-time candidate showed how little he understands about the politics of abortion by suggesting that “there has to be some kind of punishment” if abortion were made illegal.
“For the woman?” asked progressive partisan Chris Matthews of MSNBC. Mr. Trump: “Yeah, there has to be some form.” He added that men who impregnate women who have an abortion should not be punished.
The remarks caused an uproar—on the right and left—when the network released them Wednesday. Not even the most fervent abortion opponent favors punishing a woman who has one. If Roe v. Wade were overturned, opponents would try to pass laws that punish abortion providers or the clinics where they take place. Mr. Trump’s remarks were thus a political gift to Democrats and the left, who would like nothing better than to stereotype abortion opponents as misogynists who want to put women in jail.
In other words, for those on the correct side of abortion politics, women are weak, delicate creatures who’s decisions are easily influenced by doctors and men and who are the victims of these people who must be protected.
Vs the Donald Trump world view…..If abortion is illegal and a woman chooses to have one anyway, then she understands the consequences and needs to face them.
Who respects women the most?
(ps – I am on some days a never trumpster but he made a valid point here until he had to walk it back due to the “politics of abortion”)
Though if Hillary is indicted before the election – vote for whoever, but she can not win this. As in, Dear God don’t let her win this.
This is far and away the most important issue of election 2016. All others pale compared to it. How our government — FBI and DOJ — resolves this investigation will affect the very backbone of our country: the rule of law. No democratic society can exist without it. No person, no matter how high, can be above it. Without the rule of law, the United States of America as we know it does not exist.
