Worth Another Look

puzzlethemissingpiece-postI keep hearing about “experience” being such an important factor in the election. First of all, nobody entering the presidency has experience … not unless they’ve done it before and, with a two term limit, they haven’t. Secondly, while Donald Trump’s experience built a large, successful business empire, Hillary’s foreign relations experience gave rise to most of the problems we have with The Middle East and Russia. She, also, clearly understands very little about how business or economics work in the private sector. Experience can be valuable all right, but only if it’s GOOD experience!

So far, as voters, we have talked out of both sides of our mouths, much like the politicians we keep electing … one standard for discussion and another when we actually cast our ballots. We keep saying we want an outsider, someone with the experience to fix the economy and get America growing again … but in the previous two elections we have opted for a “business as usual” politician and rejected the outsider, ostensibly because of a lack of “experience” in government.  Really?  So into the porcelain fixture we go, yet again, with one hand on the flusher and the other clutching our noses!  Maybe it’s time we began voting with our heads instead of our fears about the “change” we say we want.

Trump is being measured against the standards of a politician.  It’s the wrong standard … like measuring a football field with a stick graduated in meters instead of yards.  You’re going to come up short!  What if you asked Hillary, or any other politician to build a skyscraper or operate a casino, how do you suppose they would do?  Off Track Betting in New York should give you some idea: They were probably the first legal gambling operation on earth to go broke!  Isn’t it about time we started using an independent-outsider stick to measure The Donald’s worth rather than the insider stick graduated with a ‘more-of-the-same’ scale?  Trump has the proven gift of surrounding himself with exactly the right people to do the job and tolerates no incompetence.  Hillary’s choices, on the other hand, and how they have advised her speak for themselves. If we’re seeing “the high road” from the Democrats, with their daily diatribe of personal accusations instead of offering substantive programs, I’d hate to see what “the low road” looks like!

America is broken. We need jobs, economic stability and growth. We also need law and order and safety at home, respect from our allies and fear from our enemies abroad. We need a leader who is responsible to us, not to special interests and secret global arrangements. We need someone with experience in areas that serve The People and the nation, as opposed to the inner-workings of a Washington elite. Donald Trump meets those criteria. I remember Herman Cain’s answer in 2012 when asked about his knowledge of how government works in Washington and he replied, “It doesn’t.” That hasn’t changed and our present state of chaos and corruption testifies to it. America needs to be fixed.  If you had a pipe that was about to burst, do you suppose you would call a politician or might a plumber make more sense?  Think.

Quit While You’re Ahead?

crazy-hillary-1Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton is being advised to skip the last presidential debate.  It would be the final act of panic in her attempt to place the crowning jewel in her plastic tiara!  Maybe Hillary discovered during the second debate that Donald Trump is no pushover and, without a boatload of drugs to control her debilitating medical conditions, she wouldn’t last twenty minutes on her feet.  In fact, according to one Wikileaks eMail, she has been having to cling to a podium to remain vertical since at least 2009!

Typical of the Clinton politics of personal destruction, she plunged the campaign straight into the gutter, and suddenly it’s backfiring. The media has been covering for her up to now by practically ignoring the many devastating Wikileaks revelations, which she can’t afford to have ‘The Donald’ parade in front of a national audience before the election.   Then there are her phony [Bill-like] groping accusations toward him which are crumbling one-by-one and the withering firepower of Trump himself.  Add to this his call for drug testing, her inability to win on the issues, and Hillary, along with her lame excuses, is toddling toward the nearest safe space!

If she bails out, Clinton will clearly be trying to avoid confrontation with a more conservative moderator like Chris Wallace and having to respond to questions she dare not address in front of the public. If she is not adequately medicated and has to face ninety minutes of the YUUGE number of arrows Mr. Trump now has in his quiver, which could easily pierce her tissue of lies, deceit, and disdain for a wide segment of the American people, her chances of ruling our nation from the White House could finally be ended once and for all!

A Slip Of The Lip


Okay, so Donald Trump has said some pretty cringe worthy things. I want to meet the person who hasn’t … the ‘appropriately shocked’ Hillary Clinton is legendary for her own language, whether attacking her husband, addressing members of the military or deriding her Secret Service detail. Any woman who doesn’t think her own special heart-throb hasn’t engaged in this kind of conversation either still believes you find babies under cabbage leaves or is spending her life with some character who suffers from low testosterone, exfoliates his chest hairs and spends half his life looking for a ‘safe space’. It’s not disrespect. It’s guys! We think with our glands!

There is a YUUGE difference between talk and action. Trump has talked. He has not committed predatory acts of abuse like Bill Clinton or tried to cover them up by destroying the lives of victims like Hillary. He has also never raised our taxes, voted for a war, cost American lives, lied to families of the fallen, mishandled national security information, sold political influence to our adversaries, transferred twenty percent of American uranium deposits to the Russians or negotiated a disastrous Iranian agreement that virtually guarantees them nuclear capability. Neither has Trump plunged The Middle East into turmoil, helped give birth to the likes of ISIS, brushed aside the fact we are at war, or refused to even say the name of our enemy … Radical Islamic Terrorism.

Trump does not want open trade and open borders, is not in favor of a global society, does not want to turn American sovereignty over to the United Nations, will not import 500% more foreign invaders, will not ignore the U.S. Constitution, bypass Congress, take our 2nd Amendment rights away by executive order or curtail free speech.

What he will do is appoint Conservative judges to the Supreme Court and thousands of judgeships across the country, use his vast business experience to restore jobs and our economy, renew respect for our nation in the world, rebuild our infrastructure, restore our inner cities, put a halt to the Judeo-Christian erosion that has been occurring over the past several years, improve our educational and healthcare systems, restore law and order, and put an end to the epidemic of political correctness that has been eroding freedoms in America. Trump has a perspective for our nation above self, and will institute programs that will provide opportunity, keep us safe, keep us free and make America great again! Hillary does not.

It’s really pretty simple. Candidates aside, on November 8th we will vote either to be a nation of free individuals, making our own choices, responsible for our own lives … or a global collective, governed by a ruling class, dependent upon their authority to make our choices and dictate every aspect of our lives.

Are Donald Trump’s remarks of more than a decade ago okay? No. Are they unusual, particularly for a guy, but let’s not leave out the ladies? No … it’s everyday locker room banter. In fact, I have a feeling those acting most horrified are the ones with the most skeletons in the biggest closets! On the other hand, what a terrific opportunity for insiders dragged kicking and screaming to support an outsider in the first place, to finally bail out … just look who is running fastest for the hills leaving their candidate twisting in the wind.

I am reminded of a Woody Allen statement, “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.” If Americans are willing to let the most important election of our lifetime turn on an occasional casual comment, by a patriotic truth teller who doesn’t politically filter every utterance … thus allowing the coronation of a woman who says she needs one public persona and one private; a woman whose criminal actions have long since blurred the line between right and wrong, honesty and falsehood … then I’m ready to turn in my membership card and sit in a dark room with my tattered flag, because America has already slipped into the abyss.

Trump Lawsuits Exposed

Hillary Clinton has charged that Donald Trump doesn’t pay his employees, doesn’t pay his bills and is being sued by all sorts of disgruntled clients and contractors for ripping them off.  Once and for all, let’s look at his record and tear through this tissue of Democrat lies.

Over the past 30 years, Mr. Trump has been involved with 3,500 lawsuits, which break down as follows:

  • 1,900 he was the plaintiff
  • 1,450 he was the defendant
  • 150 were bankruptcy or third party lawsuits
  • 451 Trump won
  • 38 Trump lost
  • 500 suits were dismissed
  • 175 were settled

Not a bad average for a reprobate … if he were playing baseball instead of building skyscrapers, Trump would be Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig all rolled into one!   Looking at the nature of these actions only 60, or about 1.7 lawsuits per year, were not because he was ‘stiffing’ anyone but because work that he had contracted for was either done poorly or not completed.  When I built our home (55 different sub-contractors – can’t imagine how many for a 100 story building), I didn’t pay for shoddy or incomplete work either … so sue me!

About half, or 1700, were ‘ordinary American’ lawsuits.  Most had to do with Mr. Trump’s casinos where either patrons didn’t pay their debts and collection actions were necessary, or ‘slip and fall’ type cases where someone may have skated on a wet floor or perhaps had a hand nipped by a hungry elevator door.

By the way, as for his four highly touted bankruptcies:  The average business fails an average of 3 to 4 times before, if ever, achieving success.  Given his many hundreds of businesses, and possibly thousands of deals, four is an astonishingly low number.  That either makes Donald Trump a bonafide genius or a mighty lucky man … or maybe some of each.

So the next time you hear Hillary Clinton, the media or any other Democrat operative bad mouthing Mr. Trump’s business acumen, remember to do a little digging.  There is usually the story you heard and then there is the truth!

Not What They Seem

Cruz-KasichI’ve stopped listening to anything either Ted Cruz or John Kasich are saying anymore. I’m looking only at their behavior and if I hadn’t been for Trump from the beginning, I’d have been driven to support him by now. I can’t believe there are still people who don’t recognize the overwhelming lack of integrity, absence of ethics, paucity of scruples and perhaps even morals in the actions of these two sorry sots. They have come to represent all of the insults we have been forced to endure for the past 7-1/2 years … everything they’ve claimed to be running against, the very things that have given rise to the candidacies of Trump and even Sanders as outsiders.

Their desperation has driven these two colluders into an unholy alliance that ignores any sense of fair play, marginalizes the role of The American People and focuses only upon their own political self-interest, not the good of the country. Our nation’s capitol is already overflowing with these types. This is not how you win an American election. With each passing day, Cruz and Kasich become more distant from the kind of leaders our country needs at this point in history … they are the wrong men at the wrong time, attempting to snake their way into the wrong job. They are not unknown but are unpredictable. We had such a candidate in both 2008 and 2012 and we see how that has turned out!  Fool me … thrice?  Really?  How can we trust either of these men in the Oval Office if they show such a lack of trustworthiness and contempt for The People already?

In a race you win by running, by competing, not by coercing or pilfering, whether it’s backdoor deals or delegates. At best, it can only lead to hollow victory.  At worst, there is no honor in tripping your competitor before he reaches he finish line, and men without honor never really win but only live on in disgrace. Whatever else one may think of Donald Trump, he is an honorable man and is running to serve America, not some arcane ideology. He is a man of principle, integrity and good will, not a man of deceit as the actions of Cruz and Kasich are revealing them to be!

Political Tyranny

smoky roomsThe Grand Old Party is rigging their presidential primary race even worse than the Democrats!  Donald Trump is winning with the American People but the election is being stolen in those clichéd smokey back rooms.  They’re dealing for delegates even before the primary voting takes place!  In case you thought your vote — fought and paid for by millions of heroes for more than 200 years — means something, think again!  We need Trump and Cruz to, somehow, bury their differences and unite as a third party, relegating whatever candidate the establishment inserts to third place and the GOP to oblivion!

Many Republican elitists who say they would rather lose the election than see Mr. Trump in the White House had better be ready to give up both houses of Congress and the Supreme Court for generations to come if they permit the Democrats to win.  That would mean losing America permanently!  Right now, they are on just such a suicide mission.  Losing one third of the GOP electorate is probably a conservative estimate, if they continue on their present course.

We The People on both sides of the aisle have had it to the brim with authoritarians shoving their collective will down our throats and, today, may easily have more reason to make systemic adjustments than our forefathers did in 1776.

Teddy Goes To New York

CruzNow, this is the big city Ted and people walk real fast, sometimes they even bump into you and don’t even apologize. The choo-choo runs underground here, so the rumble you hear isn’t an earthquake and yes, it does stop so you can get on … yes, it does stop Ted.

If you see a marquis that says “Live Nudes” it doesn’t mean as opposed to dead ones, it means instead of moving pictures … and you might hear people say words like “hell” and “damn” or even worse. Folks in the big city pretty much say what they mean, so don’t hurt your head trying to figure out what they are really trying to say. If tell you they don’t llke you, chances are they don’t. Sometimes when people run, they aren’t always exercising … someone might be chasing them so you might want to stand clear and not try to explain your fiscal policy or hand out a campaign button just then. Most of these folks are probably Democrats anyway, so you won’t be losing very much by giving it an “Aw shucks” shuffle and focusing on your shoe tops.
Many people here are fairly emotional about things, so your silver tongued logic may not work on, say, a guy standing in front of a bar who asks you for a buck to buy dinner. If someone living in a doorway tells you it’s his, it probably is. If anyone calls you “Sucka'”, talks about his “Homies” or refers to you as “Bro” just smile and keep walking. I wish I had the room here to tell you more about what you will encounter in this strange, enchanting land … the attitude, the morals, the New York values, but I think you’ll discover the rest for yourself by the time you’ve had your good suit cleaned and your stitches are ready to come out!

Ruining For President

Voting-smI just watched an hour of news … an hour of hate! Everyone but the voters seems to be out to get Donald Trump … and Cruz whom I once liked, has turned into one of the most lying, devious SOBs I’ve seen in politics during my lifetime and there have been quite a few. Personal destruction is not supposed to be how we pick a president in the United States.  Funny thing is, Cruz and the Kasich are so busy bad-mouthing The Donald that he turns out to be the only one whose programs I actually understand.  The other two aren’t talking about issues … except making an issue of propelling Hillary Clinton into the presidency, by way of their misguided vitriol!

By the way, as to Ted Cruz’s allegations that Mr. Trump may, in the past, have had some kind of ties to organized crime, it didn’t seem to hurt JFK while he was in office or trying to get there … and some of his ties were pretty tight!  As for Ted, he has ties to folks in Washington that make the Mafia look like a bunch of choir boys! (Of course, we all know there is no such thing as the Mafia, but there are plenty of politicians to go ’round).

I hope the Republican party understands the reality that, if they listen to panicky Democrats and lose the November election by not supporting The People’s choice, they will exist no more.  Stick a fork in ’em, they’re done, finished, “goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu” as they sang in The Sound of Music … only this will truly be the GOP’s swan song and it won’t be pretty!

Who’s In The Tank

Establishment-smI keep hearing Ted Cruz interviews where he insists that Mr. Trump is not just part of but IS the establishment. First, let’s define what the establishment is … there are two. One is the POLITICAL establishment, where anything is possible, except for the American dream anymore. The other is most of the rest of us folks who are law abiding, work hard and generally play by the rules. Trump is part of the latter while Cruz is part of the former, like it or not.
Problem is, if you’re using a yardstick graduated in meters to measure a football field, you’re going to come up short. That is what a lot of people, including Cruz, are doing when they look at The Donald. Even if ol’ Twistin’ Ted were right … if they want to catch a jewel thief, who do the cops hire, another cop? No. They hire (wait for it) A JEWEL THIEF! Either way, Ted had better concentrate on Ted, not on Donald, because the sharks in the political establishment tank are after him too … they’re only chasing Trump first because, right now, he’s swimming faster!

A Question of Values

valuesIt was most interesting to spend a few hours of sanity, watching the grace and elegance of the Nancy Reagan funeral … to spend a few hours back in America! It stood in stark contrast to the ‘hallelujah anointing’ of Ted Cruz as president by the Holy Ghost and the paid violence by the great unwashed in Chicago at the Trump rally. It also contrasted sharply with the following Neil Cavuto show, which picked right up on FOX’s Trash Trump Campaign where Mayhem Kelly and company left off when I last mistakenly tried to watch the station.

Cavuto opened with the verbal emissions of some young punk named Ron Meyer, purportedly from The Washington Examiner, who didn’t look old enough to even have an opinion, let alone spew it to an audience. He needs to pay more attention to healing that big cut under his nose, rather than picking it open in public. I’m sick and tired of hearing people like Obama, Clinton or this little puke telling me what ‘our’ values are or aren’t. I can promise you this kid does not have values shared by most Americans or even have an inkling of what they might be.

The amazing thing to me is how all of these Trash Trump Guys just don’t get it … the more you falsely attack the man, the more you cement the bond with his supporters. Critics wonder what the big attraction is? Simple. Trump reflects the anger, fears and concerns of most Americans … what they feel, what they think, and what they have been brow-beaten into not expressing publicly.

What do folks want? What are ‘our’ values? Refer to the Nancy Reagan funeral and the profound utterances of the man she loved so dearly. Then realize that a great number of people believe that an avenger like Donald Trump may be the fastest way back to the real America!  As for FOX … I really can’t abide their new leftist mantle anymore and I’m guessing there are plenty of people who feel the same way.  I think they’d better look at some old broadcast tapes before it’s too late.
