“Bold Colors” Vs. “Pale Pastels”: Trump Says That He Will Not “Tone It Down”.

untitled (55)It is time to raise a banner of BOLD COLORS! Not PALE PASTELS! – Ronald Reagan, CPAC, 1975

When someone is getting the better of another person, in an argument or debate, a lot of times, you will hear the loser advise the winner to “tone it down”.

Case in point:

Foxnews.com reports that

Donald Trump showed no signs Saturday of “toning it down” on the campaign trail, attacking the Republican establishment and presidential rivals — after attempts to be “more presidential” and assurance from a top adviser a day earlier that the GOP front-runner would show more restraint.

Trump said at a rally in Bridgeport, Conn., that “being presidential is easy” but boring.

“I have to keep you people entertained and awake,” Trump told the crowd of about 1,000. “Have you seen Hillary Clinton using a teleprompter … . People starting yawning. It’s a disaster.”

He also returned to calling Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, “Crooked Hillary” and the argument that the Washington Republicans’ system of awarding delegates for primary and caucus wins is “rigged.”

Trump appeared unwilling to spare anybody on Saturday, suggesting GOP rival Ohio Gov. John Kasich change the spelling of his last name so that it could be more easily pronounced. And he returned to calling his closest primary rival, Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, “Lyin’ Ted,” after referring to him as “Senator Cruz” after Trump’s commanding victory Tuesday in the New York primary.

“I sorta don’t like toning it down,” Trump said Saturday.

Democrats and Republicans this coming Tuesday will hold primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

On Saturday, Democratic candidate Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was in Baltimore, where he continued to criticize Clinton for being supported by Wall Street and million-dollar PACs, or political action committees.

He was scheduled to make a stop in Wilmington, Del., late Saturday, while Clinton visited the Orangeside diner in New Haven, Conn., where she largely focused on such economic issues as family leave, equal pay for women and increasing the minimum wage to $15 hourly.

“We need paid family leave because it’s the most important part of anyone’s life,” she said. “Equal pay? We shouldn’t be talking about it in 2016. It’s almost embarrassing.”

Kasich was in Rhode Island, while Cruz, the most conservative in the GOP field, was in Indiana, ahead of that state’s May 3 primary.

Cruz finished third in the New York primary and is not projected to do well Tuesday, according to most polls.

Those polls show Trump with double-digit leads in Tuesday’s races.

Clinton also leads in all five states but by single-digit margins in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, according to several polls.

Trump will look to increase his delegate count toward getting 1,237 of them to secure the GOP nomination before the party’s convention in July. He now has 845 pledged delegates, followed by Cruz with 559 and Kasich with 148.

Clinton has 1,428 pledged delegates, compared to 1,153 for Sanders, toward securing their party’s presidential nomination with 2,383 delegates.

Earlier Saturday, at a rally in Waterford, Conn., Trump made similar, sarcastic remarks about appearing more presidential, a move his campaign and wife Melania apparently have urged him to make.

Trump’s new senior adviser, Paul Manafort, privately assured Republican National Committee officials at their spring meeting in Florida this week that the candidate knows he needs to tone down the vitriol and that Trump is merely “projecting an image.”

“The part that he’s been playing is now evolving,” Manafort said. “The negatives will come down. The image is going to change.”

What Trump is doing, with his refusal to “act more presidential”, is implementing a strategy.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox news, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only was to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being employed by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, named Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved and is proving effective, in the case of both Presidential Candidates.

As the polls show, and will continue to show, Trump is striking 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”.

Why is Donald J. Trump still so popular with average Americans?

The reason is very simple: WE’RE ANGRY.

Our palpable anger is one which has been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who has as much in common with average Americans as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.

That anger, a result of his 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.

You want to talk about anger and frustration?

Try looking for work, when you are over 55 years of age.

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, which has propelled Donald J. Trump to his lead in the Republican Primary Race…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo know it.

If the Republican establishment does not accept the fact that Americans are angry, they will go down to defeat again in 2016.

They will never achieve victory by trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Hence, the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

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.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down”?

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

And, we Americans have had our fill of them.

Trump Continues to Lead Republican Hopefuls. No One Likes Him But the People.

GOP-Trumped-NRD-600populism – (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) a political strategy based on a calculated appeal to the interests or prejudices of ordinary people.

For a current example, please reference “Donald J. Trump”.

The Daily Mail reports that

Step right up, children of Ottumwa, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City! No tickets needed – just put on your ‘Make America Great Again!’™ cap and make your way to the front of the line for a ride on Donald Trump’s flying fortress.

It’s the silly season in America’s midwest, and for eleven days beginning on August 13 Iowans will converge on the state fairgrounds for livestock shows, country music, fried Oreos, games, carnival rides – and pitches from presidential candidates.

This year’s main attraction, if Trump has his way, will be his $7 million Sikorsky S-76 helicopter – a one-of-a-kind campaign tool available only for children who want to see what cornfields look like from 5,000 feet above the dirt.

The billionaire told DailyMail.com on Wednesday in an exclusive interview that he’s asked the Iowa State Fair for permission to set up the thrill ride at his own risk and expense.

The lucky riders will hop aboard the same whirlybird that appeared in the openening credits of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’

‘We’re going to fly it out to Iowa and I’m going to have it there,’ he said in his Manhattan office, initially referring to the annual event as ‘The World’s Fair.’

‘I look forward to that. I went there once years ago,’ he said. ‘It was so great. So many people.’

And so many Republican primary voters. With children.

‘I’m going to try giving kids lifts in the helicopter,’ he said near the end of a half-hour interview that ranged in topics from high finance to Hillary Clinton’s ‘low class.’

‘You know, young kids. Yeah!’ Trump said, sounding like a kid who’s just built his first pinewood derby car.

‘If I can do it – if I’m allowed to do it!’

The 52-foot executive chopper seats 12 people comfortably, including the pilot. It’s unclear whether Trump would remain on board with young Iowans or remain on the ground to hand leaflets and stickers to their parents.

But he’s making plans to be there and show off one of the helicopters in his air livery.

‘I have three helicopters,’ Trump boasted on Wednesday. ‘Did you know that?’

‘I have one at Turnberry, one at Doral, and one in New York City.’

The Turnberry chopper took him Thursday to his golf course in Scotland, which is hosting the Women’s British Open golf tourney this weekend.

It’s the New York chopper that would make the two-hop, 1,000-mile trip to Iowa. Trump would take his Boeing 757 jet and meet up with his crew in the Hawkeye State.

‘I think you have to do two stops,’ he said. ‘You know, it’s like a 10-hour flight to go out.’

Aside from the obvious media value of such a spectacle – ‘It’ll be magnificent,’ Trump mused – the unlikeliest of Republican front-runners grinned broadly when he imagined the scene near Des Moines.

‘We’re asking approval,’ he said, nearly hopping out of his chair. ‘We’re really doing it!’

‘Because I would love to take some of the young kids – you know, put 10 kids into the helicopter and let ’em go up and down.’

The chopper itself was outfitted and decorated by designer Eric Roth at a cost rumored to be $750,000 – after the purchase of the aircraft itself.

Children who manage to clamber aboard will sink into cream-colored Italian-leather seating, sip Trump-brand ice water and secure themselves with 18-karat gold plated seat belt buckles.

Roth also designed the interior of Trump’s 757, using the same materials – including what pilot John Dunkin said in May was enough gold to plate the outside of a Greyhound bus.

The Iowa State Fair’s press office did not respond to requests for comment about whether Trump will get permission to launch his short-term attraction in two weeks’ time, but he’s hopeful.

The Donald said of the whole concept: ‘It’s cool. Isn’t it cool?’

 

Why is Donald Trump still the frontrunner among all the Republican Presidential Candidates?

This brash, unabashedly American, business entrepreneur and quintessential showman has dominated the media for the past several years.

The popularity of his reality program on NBC and the catch phrase that came leaping out from it, “You’re fired!”, spread across America like wildfire.

Now, his Presidential Campaign is doing the same.

It is not just his flamboyance that has caught the eye of Americans.

The fact is, after almost two terms of an Administration taking the great country in the world on a scenic tour of the Highway to Hell, Donald Trump is the only Republican Candidate shouting, “Hit the brakes, you idiots!”

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.

This is what I don’t understand about the Republican Establishment.

They run around telling everybody how Conservative they are, when in reality, they actually hold the same beliefs as Liberal Democrats.

Ronald Reagan gave a famous stump speech about the fact that the Republican Party at one time, needed “bold colors, not pale pastels”.

From what I’m seeing out of a lot of the Republicans right now, they’re not even presenting Americans with pale pastels.

…Except for Donald Trump.

Back in the day, that political strategy propelled Ronald Reagan to the Presidency of the United States.

Per learnourhistory.com:

Through the 1970s, the United States struggled through a terrible recession and government became much more involved in Americans’ lives. Additionally, America showed significant weakness globally, as the Soviet Union flexed its muscles and smaller nations began to lose both fear and respect for the United States. It was clear the country needed a change.

Ronald Reagan was the right man for the job and was elected in a landslide. He swiftly changed the course of the nation, lowering taxes and reducing regulations to stimulate the economy and standing up for America’s principles and beliefs around the world. In addition to his changes to foreign and domestic policy, Reagan was an “American Exceptionalist”, meaning that he understood that there was something special and different about America that set it apart from all other nations. During his time in office, Reagan reduced the intrusive role of the government and helped the nation re-discover its greatness, power and economic growth.

The Political Strategy of “Bold Colors” is the reason that Trump is still leading all of the Professional Politicians, who are currently seeking the Nomination for the Republican Presidential Candidacy.

The Republican Establishment continues to show their color to be Liberal Blue, while they claim to be Conservative Red.

It is almost as if they believe that the Political Tsunami, which resulted in Republicans holding both Houses of Congress, came about because they made themselves look like Democrats.

They need to come down off of Capitol Hill every now and then.

And, visit Realityville.

Perhaps then, Trump will give them a ride on his helicopter, too.

…If they ask nicely.

Until He Comes,

2 Cops Shot in Ferguson. Why #BlueLivesMatter.

 

image

Well, it finally happened. Two Missouri Police Officers are lying in a hospital, fighting for their lives, shot by the rifle of an unknown gunman, spurred on by the racial animus being ginned up by President Barack Hussein Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and the rest of America’s Professional Race-Baiters.

CNN.com reports that

With tensions running high after the shooting of two officers in Ferguson, Missouri, state and county police are once again taking over protest security in the St. Louis suburb.

St. Louis County Police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol will “assume command of the security detail regarding protests” at 6 p.m. (7 p.m. ET), St. Louis County Police said in a statement.

Ferguson Police will remain responsible for routine policing services in the city, the statement said.

The takeover comes less than a day after two police officers standing guard outside Ferguson police headquarters were shot in what St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar called an “ambush,” spurring a manhunt for those responsible for targeting the line of officers.

“We could have buried two police officers,” Belmar told reporters. “… I feel very confident that whoever did this … came there for whatever nefarious reason that it was.”

This isn’t the first time that county police and state troopers have stepped in to handle protest security.

When clashes between police and protesters boiled over last year, Missouri’s governor declared a state of emergency and tapped the State Highway Patrol to take over. After that emergency declaration expired in December, Ferguson Police resumed command of protest security. Officers from other agencies have continued to provide backup at larger protests.

Protest organizers are meeting to determine whether they’ll demonstrate again Thursday night.

“The most important thing is the safety of the protesters, so we’re meeting to organize what tonight would look like, if we’re coming out, because we know that tensions are high within the Police Department after the incident that occurred last night, so we just want to make sure that people are safe,” said Kayla Reed of the Organization for Black Struggle.

If protesters return, they’ll see a different security situation on the streets, said Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officers Association.

“It’s a very tense situation, as you can well imagine,” he told CNN’s “The Situation Room.” “In my communications as a union official with police commanders, I’ve been assured that tactics will be different tonight. I assume that means not only more officers, but a wider perimeter, with coverage, perhaps, of these blind spots from which the shots were fired last night.”

The shots rang out shortly after midnight, at the end of a protest against the Ferguson Police Department. That department has been under fire since one of its officers, Darren Wilson, shot and killed black teen Michael Brown in August, and more recently since a scathing U.S. Department of Justice report came out documenting a pattern of racial discrimination.Police Chief Thomas Jackson resigned from his post Wednesday.

While the demonstrators’ focus was Ferguson, neither of the wounded officers works in that St. Louis suburb’s police department.

One is from Webster Groves, a city about 13 miles south of Ferguson. The officer — a 32-year-old with seven years’ experience — was shot at the high point of his cheek, just under his right eye, Belmar said. The bullet that hit him was still lodged behind his ear as of late Thursday morning.

The other wounded officer was hit in the shoulder and the bullet came out the middle of his back, Belmar said. He is a 41-year-old from St. Louis County Police who has been in law enforcement for the past 14 years.

Both men were treated and released from St. Louis’ Barnes Jewish Hospital, according to a Thursday morning post on the St. Louis County Police’s Facebook page.

The officers were standing next to each other when they were struck, Belmar said.

Back in the 1970s, one of my favorite television shows was “Baretta”, starring Robert Blake. Beretta was a no-nonsense New York City Plain Clothes Cop, who wore a jaunty hat, blue jeans, and a short sleeve sweatshirt, and had a cockatoo named Fred.

The title song, “Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow”, was performed by Sammy Davis, Jr.

The catchphrase to the song, which became popular nationwide, was, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”

It meant that if you cannot take responsibility for your actions, then perhaps you should not do something illegal in the first place.

Perhaps someone should have instructed those two young men, who were killed in those unfortunate incidents in Ferguson, Missouri and New York City, as to the difference between right and wrong, and the importance of taking responsibility for one’s actions.

I find it very ironic, that the same protesters who are screaming and shouting at the top of their lungs that there is a different standard for black Americans and white Americans, in terms of dealing with our legal system, are the same ones who are expecting to be treated differently, and to have some sort of special privilege, that excuses them from unlawful behavior and the consequences of their own actions .

When you break our laws, you just cannot expect to get away scot-free. You should expect that there will be consequences for your actions. That is, unless you have broken into this country.

But, I digress…

It is also ironic that the same radical Americans, who years ago, wanted to take down the Establishment, now, actually are the Establishment.

In their quest to create a Socialist Utopia, where everyone is the same, and there are no overachievers or underachievers , the Obama Administration and their sycophants have actually set the stage for the chaos and animus regarding race relations that is gripping our country.

By promising Americans that they will take care of everything from cradle to grave, Obama and his Administration, like other Liberal administrations before them, have “freed” parents from their duties, creating a generational cycle of neediness, lawlessness, and disrespect for authority.

Without respect for our legal system, and for those in authority, whose job it is to enforce our system of laws, a civilized society can quickly evolve into a scene from The Lord of the Flies, where the most barbaric will have the most power and privilege. In other words, they will rule by intimidation.

There were protesters actually cheering and making fun of the two police officers as they were laying there, bleeding out, after being shot.

The Bible tells us that we reap what we sow.

Obama has sown Class Warfare and Racial Division… and now, America is reaping the results.

Race-Baiting, Bolsheviks, and the Thin Blue Line

AFBrancoWeCantBreathe12212014The Thin Blue Line, the Men In Blue, who protect ordinary citizens, like you and me, from criminals and nut jobs, are under attack, caused by a wave of race-baiting, which reaches all the way to the White House.

The CBS Local Affiliate in New York City reports that

New Jersey’s state police union has issued an email alert to the group’s 33,000 members warning them to take extra caution after two NYPD officers were murdered.

New Jersey State PBA Executive Vice President Marc Kovar said in the email Sunday morning that all members and officers should take extra caution and change up routines in the coming weeks.

He cites heightened hostility from nationwide protests that he says has led to a “fever pitch of anti-police sentiment.”

“This open hostility has created more tense encounters with officers even on routine incidents such as motor vehicle stops,” the alert reads.

Kovar also advised officers to be vigilant for potential ambushes after two NYPD officers were ambushed and shot to death in Brooklyn Saturday.

As NJ.com reported, the Newark Police Department will take single officer-units off of the streets, according to the union president.

“The Newark Fraternal Order of Police is primarily concerned with the safety of the officers in the street,” James Stewart, the president of the union, said late Saturday. “In the climate we face today there is nothing more important. We are happy the Director agrees with our view and is putting the safety of the men and women in the street above all else.”

On Long Island, police in Nassau and Suffolk County will be taking precaution in the wake of the murders.

As Newsday reported, Suffolk County cops have been instructed ‘to maintain a heightened level of awareness,’ police said in a statement. There was not believed to be a specific threat.

Nassau County police will also be taking appropriate precautions, a spokesman said.

Police say 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley killed two officers in Bedford-Stuyvesant after vowing online to shoot two officers in retaliation for the police chokehold death of Eric Garner. Another police officer was shot and killed in Florida Sunday morning.

The union says officers should be alert for any interaction where someone may be looking for a confrontation.

There is concern out there that the craven coward who killed two of New York’s Finest may be the first of many soulless idiots, who have police officers in their murderous sights.

As I wrote yesterday, every race-baiter, local & national, who have fanned the flames of racial hatred, has the blood of these two police officers on their hands.

The Great American Broadcaster, the late Paul Harvey, was the son of a policeman who died in the line of duty. He wrote the following tribute for one of his daily updates…

“What is a policeman?

“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.

“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.

“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.

“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.

“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

So, why do we have so many out there who are calling for “dead cops”, while protesting over the deaths of criminals?

By the time President Johnson came into office, after the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the majority of Americans totally believed that our government always had our best interest at heart.

President Johnson came into office and immediately started his push for the Great Society. These programs were designed to make Americans even more dependent on the Federal Government for their very survival.

As the Vietnam War grew more and more and unpopular, Americans’ trust in the government became more and more compromised.  Protests against the Federal Government became more and more common and it became cool to be a rebel or “hippie”.

Time passed, and while rebellious Americans calmed down, Americans’ dependence upon government programs became generational, as multiple family members from one generation to the next, relied on Uncle Sugar for their daily existence.

Meanwhile, the rebels of the 1960’s got older and began to work within the system, taking jobs within the private and public sectors.

Eventually, they moved into positions of power, becoming heads of corporations and local and national politicians.

It is not really necessary to tell you what the political ideology of these rebels was, is it?

As the last century ended and the new one began, these hippies and their offspring, solidly in place in the halls of power, began to pass more more legislation designed to keep generations of Americans enslaved to Uncle Sugar.

In this present situation, what we are seeing is the result of anti-establishment rhetoric, spewed forth by those who are now actually “the Establishment”, taking hold, and spreading Class Envy and Racial Animus in such a way as to inspire violent retaliation for perceived “grievances”, by a fictional “White Establishment”, which is actually no longer in power, and the Police, who are seen as the emissaries of “The Man”.

Meanwhile, the Community Organizer-in-Chief is on vacation in Hawaii AT THE EXPENSE OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

It’s reminiscent of Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Look it up, y’all.

Until He Comes,
