    Donald J Trump - Pissing Me Off Again - Updated!

    Note: Significant edit to this post.

    Gawd, Donald Trump is a frickin' idiot.

    What is Kellyanne Conway doing letting this dumb SOB have his twitter account back?

    The reason he's tweeting at 3am is because that's when he could get online without his handlers watching him.

    I am going to reconsider remaining in the #reluctantTrump camp.  I'm committed.  As soon as early voting opens here in Georgia, I am going to go vote for the Orange Idiot so nothing he does can change that.

    Good Lord, this moron has simply got to stop making Hillary Clinton look like an idiot savant.

    I implore his campaign team to explain to this fool that the response to these attacks is a quick one line reply then shift the attention to the opponent.

    He can't resist defending himself, and that will be the end of him, I think.

    Donald - you were on a glide path to victory.  Although I though the 45 minutes of the debate I watched was tedious, boring, and you both sucked, the consensus was you won the first part, so, that was probably a net win, since I expect most people, like me, got tired of it and turned it off.

    Nooooooooooooooooooo, you are so stupid, you took her bait on the last question about the fat beauty queen (and yes, she got fat, so what) and had to defend yourself.

    The answer, Donald, is something along the lines of:

    "I may have said intemperate things about a disgruntled employee who didn't maintain the brand image, but I have never, and would never, defend a rapist or turn on his victims."
    Period.  Done.  Your last word.

    Let Hillary defend that.

    When Hillary comes out with her news minions and their stories, yours is, "She's a disgruntled employee with an axe to grind and that was 20 years ago.  20 years ago Hillary Clinton was dragging rape victims names through the mud to ensure her access to power.  There's a difference."

    Let your supporters and others handle the dirty stuff.  The dredging up her past indiscretions.  You then STFU.  There is nothing to be gained by you tweeting at 3am.  Nothing.

    Don't do it.

    Dear Donald, When She Says You Lie, Keep it Simple


    Hillary Clinton is telegraphing that she intends to portray you as a big fat liar.

    When you're principally known as a liar, as Hillary is, I suppose the path to beating your opponent is to paint them as an EVEN.BIGGER.LIAR.

    So, tonight she's going to call you a liar, and she's trying to use an appeal to authority (the moderator) to get them to pile on.

    The reply is simple, simple, simple.

    "Hillary Clinton wants to paint me as a liar.  Her campaign has even berated the moderator tonight to get him to 'fact check' (use the scare quotes) me tonight.

    Folks, you know that I embarked on this campaign not to get rich (I already am), but because I am very concerned about the future of our great country.  That has meant telling some hard truths about the way things are, and the way things will be, and the things Hillary Clinton and President Obama have done to make your lives more difficult.

    You have responded by coming to my rallies and listening politely, but with great energy, because you know these things to be true and you know I am the only person you hear speaking to you truthfully. YOU know these things to be true, and that's why I have 10,000, 20,000 people at my events and Hillary has 50.  People don't come to hear more of the same lies, they come to hear the truth, because it's so refreshing to them.  That's why this movement is so powerful.

    Hillary and her media friends don't want you to know the truth.  They go so far as to claim things that Bernie Sanders said were true, and when I say the exact same thing, they say it is false.  They are the liars.

    Hillary Clinton has a 30 year history of lying to the American people.  It is all she does.  You know it, she lied about what happened in Whitewater, she lied about the White House travel office, she lied about cattle futures, she lied about Benghazi, she lied about her emails, she lies about the Clinton Foundation.  Of course, she is lying about me, too.

    But, I am not with Her, I am with YOU, the American people, and you know, I will NOT lie to you for political gain, and in my administration, we will tell you the truth, even when it is not convenient for us.  On that, you have my solemn pledge.

    VDH Lays Out the Trump Case, or Why #nevertrump needs to give it up

    You should read Victor Davis Hanson’s latest piece on why the GOP should support Trump, but I’ll help with some tidbits.

    Hanson riffs on how the media treats all GOP candidates:

    “When the media got through with a good man like McCain, he was left an adulterous, confused septuagenarian, unsure of how many mansions he owned, and a likely closeted bigot. Another gentleman like Romney was reduced to a comic-book Ri¢hie Ri¢h, who owned an elevator, never talked to his garbage man, hazed innocents in prep school, and tortured his dog on the roof of his car.”

    He similarly laments how the media (and this includes our side as well) now sees the way Trump is succeeding as a bad thing, when before…

    “Trump’s ball-and-chain flail, such as it can be fathomed, is in large part overdue.  In the old days, any candidates who met with the press, held news conferences, were easily cross-examined, gave out their blood tests and EKG results (did Obama or Hillary?), had small staffs and few TV ads, raised little outside money, spoke extemporaneously, and were not prepped by legions of handlers were considered ‘different’ in the sense that they were welcomed mavericks to an otherwise scripted campaign season.”

    Does Trumo say stupid stuff?  Yes, but, so does his opponent, and HER stupid stuff brought me right back to Trump:

    “Replying in kind to a Gold Star Muslim family or attacking a Mexican-American judge who is a member of a La Raza legal group is, of course, stupid and crass, but perhaps not as stupid as Hillary, before a Manhattan crowd of millionaires, writing off a quarter of America as deplorable, not American, and reprobate racists and bigots.”

    It’s a long essay, and if you’re TrumpCurious, or a #nevertrumper who’s willing to self-reflect, do read the entire essay.

    Donald J Trump's Statement on The President's Birth (as proposed by me)

    President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is an American.  Period.

    As we learned this week, the rumors of President Obama’s birth in Kenya were begun in 2008 by key Hillary Clinton Senior Advisor, Sid Blumenthal and shopped to various news organizations in 2008.  As a high-level Clinton lieutenant and long-time friend of Hillary, Blumenthal was considered such a credible source that the McClatchy News Service sent a reporter to Kenya to look into the allegations.

    However, the press, as Democratic party lapdogs and dishonest arbiters of their own “truth” failed to fully investigate and put this issue to rest, so it was left to fester for 3 more years.

    In 2011, as I became much more concerned about the direction of our country, which was then, and continues to be the wrong direction, I decided to take this issue head-on.  The lack of transparency from the current administration - regarding the Fast and Furious scandal at the time, and as we saw with the IRS scandal later, and the Benghazi coverup in 2012, bothered me greatly.

    My fear was something was being hidden from the American people.

    The Constitution only has 2 requirements for a President - to be 35 years old and a “natural-born” citizen, I felt it was important that we get complete disclosure on this issue, so I pushed to have the original documents that confirmed the President’s birth released.  This is something a media seeking the truth could have easily accomplished in 2008, but it took a citizen with some means and a platform to make it happen.  That says more about the media than it does Donald J Trump.

    This issue is behind us, and it should remain so.  It is, as those on the Left are so want to say, “settled science” at this point.

    That Hillary Clinton and her campaign would start such a rumor, based on no actual facts, is a sad testimony to the kind of “say anything” campaigns Hillary Clinton runs. It is the way she will govern, if elected, because that is how Clinton’s always govern.

    That the media would do nothing to fully close these rumors indicates how in the tank they are for Democrat candidates and can not be trusted to provide you the truth.  Fortunately, today, you have choices other than the mainstream media outlets who seek to only provide one side of the story.

    This will be the last time I speak of this.

    Thank you,
    Donald J Trump

    Islam - Not a Race

    Hillary Clinton recently included in the things she finds deplorable, "Islamophobia."

    Despite this not being an actual, thing, it also is not a serious charge.  And by not "serious," I mean the person leveling it is not serious.

    As Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch), Andrew McCarthy, Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugged) or Mark Steyn (SteynOnline) will attest, it also is not a phobia if the fear is rational.

    I'll take on anyone who wants to debate that we should not have a rational fear of Islam and especially it's most fervent adherents, who I will refer to as Islamists, or Islamofascists to more precisely target it to those who push the teachings of Mohammad and the tenets of political Islam, including Sharia, to achieve their goal of a Global Caliphate.

    All one has to do is look around and see the havoc being wreaked across the globe, including here in America, by these murderous thugs, operating under the banner of Islam.  Are there others committing acts of terror in the name of their God?  Well, yes, there are, and people love to point to Christian terrorists like Eric Rudolph, but, let's please be honest, nearly 100% of Christians denounce these people, and the vast, vast, vast majority of acts of terror committed now are committed in the name of Allah.  Sure the SPLC likes to catalog "hate crimes" committed against innocent Muslims, and these exist to be sure, but none approach in the remotest way possible, the acts carried out in this country at Fort Hood, San Bernardino, Orlando, Chattanooga, Fort Dix, or Washington DC and New York City.  

    There simply is no comparison.

    Alayna Hirsi Ali can tell you what practitioners of Sharia do to women.  I encourage you to read her work.  Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller catalog the works of Islamofascists.  

    The Charlie Hebdo writers should have had a greater Islamophobia.  Many more of them might be alive today had they taken the threats more seriously and protected themselves better.

    The fact is that in a world of 1.2 billion Muslims, where polls show 20-40% do not disavow these extreme elements amongst their co-religionists, that means you have at a minimum 240 million people who are A-OK with what these murderers are doing.  If only 0.1% of Muslims are part of the death cult that wants to establish the caliphate and do it by murdering the infidels, that means there are 120,000 people willing to meet Allah and get their 72 virgins.  So, is it irrational to be concerned about 120,000 potential terrorists?  What if it's .01%?  Is it still irrational if the number is only 12,000?  When does it become irrational?

    The other thing Clinton's and the Left's approach to this is to lump Islamophobics in with racists and homophobes.

    Little different, in that you can't change your race, and pretty much everyone agrees sexual preference is baked in.  Does the Left think that Islam is a race?  Newsflash - Islam is a religion that also includes a political element, with sharia as the law.  People do have a choice when it comes to religions, and this one has proved all-too-willing to spread itself by the sword.  In fact, there are teachings in the Quran that preach just this.  

    Do I want to rid the world of Islam? Not unless this minority of Islamofascists decide they want to rid the world of me and my co-religionists (and Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Wiccans, and yes, even you atheists out there).  If that's the battle they want, I am more than willing to enjoin them.  However, I fear few leaders in the West are as well.

    And they're preaching to their minions to just keep their heads down.  Treat this as a phobia.  This ugly people who recognize the threat will just go away or be marginalized.  They think there is no threat, or maybe they can negotiate it away when it reaches our shores and becomes truly a daily threat.  They're wrong.

    There are moderate Muslims who understand the problem Islam faces.  Egypt's president al Sisi is one of them.  Jordan's king another.  There are others, but for now, their voices are really kept from us.  How many of you even knew that one of our allies in the Middle East, Egypt's current president, is a voice of reason in this crowd of lunatics?  You don't because the Western media don't want to cover a Muslim who admits and is willing to take on islam's problems directly.  That would be giving cover to those who they prefer to call Islamophobes, and we can't have that, can we?

    What a Difference a Month Makes - Trump (reluctantly)

    My last post here was all about why I opposed Trump and how I thought he wouldn't be much worse than Hillary.

    I still think that's a possibility, but, a month closer to the election, I have decided to side with the Ace's of the world,vice the Jonah Goldberg's (look it up yourself).

    After a month that included the wretched DNC, the loss of Debbie Wasserman-Schultzas DNC Chair (sad), more Hillary email and DNC revelations, the elevation of Kellyanne Conway to Trump campaign manager, Hillary's failing health, and Trump behaving like...well, an actual presidential candidate, I have decided that I can't stand by and accept a Hillary win by going third party.

    Plus, Gary Johnson made it clear he was not after disaffected conservatives, he was getting to 15% on the backs of Bernie supporters, and Evan McMullin's campaign is a vanity butt-hurt affair run by #nevertrumpers.

    Finally, the a-holes who are Liberals, decided they were winning so big they could start telling the truth.  Hillary went out and made her "deplorables" comment and promptly got served a cup of karma that her sycophantic media toe lickers couldn't cover up because of citizen journalists. NFL football players decided to give the flag a big "FU" and the ACC and NCAA decided men and women should use the same toilet and check out each other's privates.  I can't wait for dudes who identify as women to start using Title IX to kill women's college athletics.  Karma.

    More than anything else, it is the attitude of the Left that has brought me into the Trump camp.  Hillary Clinton is an historically corrupt individual who doesn't deserve to be near the levers of power.  People bash Trump for his multiple positions (and yes, he has them), and the unknown factor of Trump, but, guess what folks, we absolutely know what Hillary will do, and it will be horrible.  She will run the Clinton administration as her personal power center, and it will be 4 years of enriching Clintons.

    There's still a chance Trump will manage to shoot off his big fat, stupid mouth, and turn this thing back to Hillary, but for now, less than 60 days out, the wind is at his back.  

    Donald J Trump is no Ronald Reagan, but this election is starting to have a feel much like 1980 in the sense of momentum.  Republican senate candidates are polling very strongly and they are usually trailing indicators.  I don't believe that Trump trails these candidates by as much as the polls indicate.  I think that there are actually people who won't say they are voting for him in polls, and I know that Hillary Clinton may get the same percentage of black and latino voters as Obama, but she won't get the same raw number, and Trump is going to increase his white percentage and white turnout.

    I still consider Trump a huge risk, but, of the  candidates who can win, he is by far the most conservative option, and in keeping with the Buckley rule, I am compelled to support him.
