Over the last few days, everyone from the President of the United States of America to local news anchors have been pushing the supposed “fact” that Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump’s mercurial nature is causing his Presidential Campaign to “implode”.
The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, made a great point during his program, yesterday.
Top Republicans and political allies to Donald Trump are planning an ‘intervention’ with the candidate following a disastrous two days and political firestorm encircling … the nominee. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Speaker [Newton] Gingrich are among those looking to talk with the businessman…” Now, didn’t we assume they were talking to him every day anyway? I mean, I thought Newt was an advisor. I thought Rudy was an advisor. I certainly thought that the chairman of the RNC was. Anyway, they want to do an “intervention” ’cause it just isn’t working. I mean, he’s imploding! He won’t listen to anybody! (This is what they’re saying.) He won’t listen to anybody! He’s taking everything way too personally. He’s asking people to feel sorry for him. You don’t go anywhere in politics doing that. “The group hopes to enlist Trump’s children, who have proven pivotal in advising the businessman’s candidacy, in their effort to get Trump back on track after days of feuding” on Trump’s part.
…Bill Hemmer was talking to Karl Rove, and Rove is probably — like many people — thinking: “What in the world is going on?
“This guy owned it! Trump was on top of the world, and is now just imploding. None of what Trump’s doing is making any sense.” People are coming up with theories. Bill Hemmer asked Rove a question ’cause Karl was quoting from polling data and basically analyzing this from the standard, inside-the-Beltway, Washington establishment political handbook. So Hemmer said (summarized), “Karl, what if we’re all wrong about this?
“What if the way you see everything that’s happening is not the way the people of this country see it? There’s evidence… There’s abundant evidence…” This is Hemmer talking to Rove. He wasn’t trying to entrap Rove. It was a legitimate question. He was saying, “Karl, what if the people in this country are so divorced now from standard, ordinary, everyday politics — they have such a distaste for it — that they have nothing in common with it anymore?
“What if that the way you’re looking at this is not at all the way a majority of people the country are looking at it, and certainly not the way Trump supporters see it? What are the odds, Karl, that everything in politics has done a 180, has been turned totally upside down and all of this traditional understanding of politics has to be thrown out the window?” I didn’t get all of Karl’s answer. He, of course, rejected the premise.
It looks to standard, ordinary, everyday political operatives like Trump is imploding. It looks like, “Oh, my God, it’s a disaster! Oh, gee, this guy is just all over the map, doesn’t have a message anymore.” But out there Trump is the vessel for the gazillions of people who are fed up with politics-as-usual and want no part of it. And they don’t care. None of this traditional analysis of Trump imploding. Trump blowing it. Trump going off message. That was the premise behind Hemmer’s question, ’cause I don’t know how he feels about it.
Of course, he’s an objective journalist, but you wonder. You know that people in traditional politics are scratching their heads, and they have been. And they are trying… There’s another story here in the Stack that another group of Republicans has launched a brand-new effort to find a way to get Trump off the presidential ballot, and there’s a story with a list of new Republicans publicly saying they’re voting for Hillary. You go through the list; it’s not a bunch of big names. Most of the names you wouldn’t know.But they are big in the bowels of the GOP. There’s one elected official, and he’s a congressman from New York. I think his last name is Hanna. The name added to the list today is Meg Whitman, who was on McCain’s short list to be vice president. She’s always been a RINO or a moderate Republican. She never has been a conservative. It’s not at all shocking that Meg Whitman would vote for Hillary.
“Karl, what if the people in this country are so divorced now from standard, ordinary, everyday politics — they have such a distaste for it — that they have nothing in common with it anymore?”
Rush’s summary of the point that Hemmer was trying to make with his question to Professional Political Pundit Karl Rove, boys and girls, is the salient point of today’s post.
The Professional Politicians in Washington dismissed the opinion of us “commoners” a long time ago.
That was the reason for the birth of the Tea Party Movement.
The corruption, “political incest”, and purposeful obtuseness as regards the traditional faith and values of average Americans, is what lead to Trump becoming the Republican Party Presidential Candidate in the first place.
Americans’ palpable anger is one which has been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who seems to have as much in common with us as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.
That anger, a result of Obama’s anti-American actions and resulting policies, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, has been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from the Conservative Voting Base, who elected them to Congress in the first place.
Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remain mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fearing of drowning in an ocean of debt.
Seemingly forgotten, in all of the forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, are the 94 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.
Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.
It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.
It is this anger, aimed at Professional Politicians and the Washingtonian Status has propelled Donald J. Trump and those who prefer that things remain the same, know it.
The indisputable fact of the matter is that, in “Open” Primaries, Trump did even better than he did in those primaries in which only Republicans could vote.
Americans are fed up with the Washingtonian Status Quo.
We are tired of professional politicians’ empty promises and their failure to properly address the issues facing America, in any way, except a self-serving one.
Paul Ryan and the Vichy Republicans, as I dubbed the Republican Establishment a while back, even after Trump became their nominee, still, incredulously, hold onto a slim hope that they can, perhaps, somehow derail “The Trump Train”, through the “power” of Republican Moderation, a “power” which has turned out to be as big a gross overestimation as the one regarding the invincibility of the RMS Titanic.
Average Americans will no longer tolerate a Republican Party who would rather be enablers of those who wish to “radically change” America, than be seen as opposing them.
The meteoric political success of Trump’s is partially a matter of timing.
Also, Trump is not afraid of hard work, as shown by his successful business career.
Trump has demonstrated at the past, as Rush mentioned, that he has great instincts.
These instincts have served him well in his Presidential Campaign.
Trump was in the right place at the right time with the right message.
The Democrats, along with their enablers in the Main Stream Media and the Republican Party Establishment, along with those “Conservative Voters”, who are unconsciously supporting them in their blind rage over Trump’s Victory are attacking Trump harder and harder everyday.
My question to those who are on “our side” is simple and direct…
Why would you want The Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, the Butcher of Benghazi, whom the majority of Americans overwhelmingly view as untrustworthy, to be the Leader of the Free World, putting us through at least four more years of the same economically debilitating Hell that her Former Boss Barack Hussein Obama, has put us through?
Are you insane?
Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.
It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).
We already have a congenital liar in the White House.
We certainly do not need another one.
It would be the height of irony and a disservice to American Conservatives who have gone before, if a bunch of voters with hurt feelings destroys all the hard work of those who have tried to prevent this country’s destruction by an out-of-control Federal Government which panders to Special Interest Groups, instead of the American voters, while inadvertently aligning themselves with these Establishment Republicans.
Now is not the time for temper tantrums, now is the time for maturity.
It is time to begin the process of taking America back.
Donald J. Trump is unabashedly American and an advocate for American Exceptionalism.
Trump has struck a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
Trump speaks of “possibilities” and is offering a view from outside of the Washington Beltway.
Bill Hemmer hit the nail on the proverbial head.
Average Americans do not see things the way that the Professional Pundits do.
We see things in terms of our day-to-day lives.
We live in Realityville.
In summation, 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.
He is offering the possibility of a brand new “Morning in America”.
And, voters are desperate to wake up from this Long National Nightmare.
Until He Comes,
