One who would place the Sovereignty of America and the Economic Prosperity of our citizens, first?
Or one who would, literally, “give away the store”, in an attempt to make other countries “like” him and to cement his “legacy”?
The Washington Post reports that
Donald Trump said in an interview that economic conditions are so perilous that the country is headed for a “very massive recession” and that “it’s a terrible time right now” to invest in the stock market, embracing a distinctly gloomy view of the economy that counters mainstream economic forecasts.
The New York billionaire dismissed concern that his comments — which are exceedingly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a major party front-runner — could potentially affect financial markets.
“I know the Wall Street people probably better than anybody knows them,” said Trump, who has misfired on such predictions in the past. “I don’t need them.”
Trump’s go-it-alone instincts were a consistent refrain — “I’m the Lone Ranger,” he said at one point — during a 96-minute interview Thursday in which he talked candidly about his aggressive style of campaigning and offered new details about what he would do as president.
The real estate mogul, top aides and his son Don Jr. gathered over lunch at a makeshift conference table set amid construction debris at Trump’s soon-to-be-finished hotel five blocks from the White House. Just before, he had met there with his foreign-policy advisers and just after he visited officials at the Republican National Committee — signs that, in spite of his Trump-knows-best manner, the political novice is making efforts to build a more well-rounded bid.
Over the course of the discussion, the candidate made clear that he would govern in the same nontraditional way that he has campaigned, tossing aside decades of American policy and custom in favor of a new, Trumpian approach to the world.
In his first 100 days, Trump said, he would cut taxes, “renegotiate trade deals and renegotiate military deals,” including altering the U.S. role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
He insisted that he would be able to get rid of the nation’s more than $19 trillion national debt “over a period of eight years.”
Most economists would consider this impossible because it could require taking more than $2 trillion a year out of the annual $4 trillion budget to pay off holders of the debt.
Trump vehemently disagrees: “I’m renegotiating all of our deals, the big trade deals that we’re doing so badly on. With China, $505 billion this year in trade.” He said that economic growth he foresees as a consequence of renegotiated deals would enable the United States to pay down the debt — although many economists have said the exact opposite, that a trade war would be crippling to the U.S. economy.
Trump also said that the United States has lost its standing in the world and that he would make people “respect our country. I want them to respect our leader.” Asked how he would do so, Trump cited an “aura of personality.”
Almost a month ago, on March 8th, I posted a blog detailing why Foreign leaders do not want Sonald J. Trump to become President of the United States.
Under the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, they have been able to make out like bandits.
Foreign Leaders, who like the advantage that they have gained, under the weak and vacillating Foreign Policy of Barack Hussein Obama, do not want the United States to regain our position as the Leader of the Free World.
It is far more lucrative for them, when the United States “negotiates from a position of weakness”.
They certainly do not want to negotiate with an American President who has mastered “The Art of the Deal”.
…as opposed to Barack Hussein Obama…who has mastered the “Art of Giving Away the Store” and compromising America’s Sovereignty in the process.
As we journey through this Quixotic Quest, known as our everyday lives, we come across windmills, which we must tilt with daily, known as “priorities”.
Priorities are unique, perplexing things, as they vary from individual to individual.
For those of us between employment, it is finding a meaningful, well-paying job, so that we may provide for our families. For other Americans, it could be the care of their elderly loved ones. For others, their priority may be to climb the Corporate Ladder at their place of employment.
For the parents of 30-year-old Liberals and “puff puff” “l”ibertarians, it may be that their priority is to get their slacker of a “kid” to move out of the basement.
But, I digress…
Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), the 44th President of these United States, has a problem.
(No, I don’t mean his overbearing wife, Mooch, and her desire to build shopping carts, which will tell us what “healthy” foods to buy. That’s a subject for another blog. Besides, it takes that heifer two rips to haul a.. …well, you know.)
Americans have noticed that there is a great disconnect between the citizens of the United States and their president. It’s not just his stand-offish behavior. There’s something else going on. He was not raised like the majority of Americans.
He didn’t have rubber dart gun wars in the neighborhood backyards. He didn’t play Nerf football in the front yards. He didn’t go to Vacation Bible School. I don’t know if he was ever told to stand with his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance.
It is this disconnect that is at the heart of the trouble with Obama’s presidency. Hope and Change have turned into despair and disbelief. Obama has never understood the shared values of average Americans, because the people who raised him did not share those values, either. It is the concern that we feel for one another, that shared American value system, that is causing a great awakening. One of the main reasons Obama wants control of the internet is so we can’t communicate with each other and he can control the message.
One of Obama’s problems, among a very long list of them, is MISPLACED PRIORITIES.
This problem started the very first time he took the Oath of Office, which clearly outlines his duties as President of the United States of America…
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
It is very obvious, to even the most casual observer that Obama cares more for those in other countries than he does for American Citizens.
Over 93,000,000 Americans remain expunged from America’s Workforce and here is the President of the United States replacing them with foreigners.
Any way you approach this fact, it remains indefensible.
I realize that I could have grown this post exponentially, by listing all of Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES en masse.
However, I believe that simplicity in communication is the best way to get one’s point across.
The point I have been attempting to make today, is a rather simplistic one, in deference to the Liberals whom I know read this blog on a daily basis, attempting to catch me in some sort of “lie”, which only they can see.
Obama’s MISPLACED PRIORITIES have not only tarnished this Shining City Upon a Hill, but it has endangered the continued existence of America and her citizens, with every day this past week, bringing a new example of Obama’s deliberate ineptness and shallow behavior, in the poor fulfillment of his Oath of Office, to the degree to which average Americans are concerned about their children’s’ and grandchildren’ s future.
Obama has failed miserably in his sworn duties as President of the United States.
But, then again, perhaps the only promise he intended to keep, was to “radically change” America.
…for the worse.
On the other hand, Donald J. Trump, love him or hate him, is unabashedly Pro-American.
He believes in American Exceptionalism.
As I have previously stated, the American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.
Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.
Trump’s straightforwardness has struck a chord in the hearts of average Americans, tired of the wussification of America, being so relentlessly pushed by both modern political parties.
If Trump receives the overwhelming plurality of the votes from the Primary Elections, and the Republican Establishment takes the nomination away from him, by means of a Brokered Convention, Hillary Clinton will become President.
Americans are tired of being told that our “votes don’t matter” and “we know what’s good for you”.
That’s the attitude of America’s Modern Professional Political Class.
Americans want someone who will stand up for us.
We want someone who will place our Economic Strength and our citizens’ well-being above that of the rest of the countries of the world.
And, that is why he is still leading the Republican Primaries.
American’s are tired of being treated by Professional Politicians like Second-Class Citizens.
Trump is not a professional Politician.
He is a “Citizen Statesman”.
Now, where did I hear this foreign-sounding concept of being a “Citizen Statesman” before?
That’s the way the Founding Fathers envisioned our system of government, led by citizens, who served their terms as public servants…AND THEN WENT HOME.
That is what we need today.
We need someone who has mastered “The Art of the Deal”.
Not someone who will “Give Away the Store”.
Until He Comes,
