Some of my readers may think that I spend all my time watching and analyzing what is happening in the Middle East…..but they would be mistaken…..for you see I can multi-task and I can watch the American political climate at the same time…..sorry to burst anyone’s bubble…….
I have watched the rise of Trump from the day he announced his candidacy…..it has been an interesting ride….but the best ride are those people that support him…..I wish I could get excited about him as some of the people I see…..I like the idea of an outsider….but not one that spend all his time talking in riddles and about himself…..
Most of them, Trump supporters, say they are worried about the direction of this country…..that is a deception……most are just disgruntled party supporters….whichever party that may be…..but we get the same reaction….they want change….which is the biggest joke there is in American politics. It is a slogan! No matter which party utters it…..it is not only a lie……. but a goddamn lie!
These people, the voters, are lying to themselves…..there is NO change coming! Since you may support Trump I will repeat that….THERE IS NO CHANGE COMING!
Why? You will get at best reform…..the only way you will get change is to replace the entire system beginning with the Congress and which of you has that kind of BALLS?
That’s what I thought.
Of course the people that support Trump take every opportunity to point out that whatever they say may be seen as racism…..then maybe if they would not use derogatory terms like “swarm”, “horde” and “pack” when referring to refugees then others would not be suspect. Just a thought.
Trump is NO way capable of leading an entire country….his handling of a racist tirade by a member of his veterans audience……
More trouble in camp Trump? After a debate performance seen as less-than-stellar, Trump’s failure to correct a man’s public assertion that President Obama is a non-American Muslim continues to resonate. Amid the backlash from both fellow Republicans and Democrats, Trump skipped a major forum for GOP candidates last night by excusing himself from the Heritage Action Presidential Forum. His campaign explained that it was because of a “significant business transaction” that required his attention, but not everyone was buying it. The Hill calls his absence “significant” given the stature of the event. Here’s a sample of some of the criticism he’s getting, via the Hill, Politico and the New York Times:
- Bobby Jindal: After expressing mock sympathy that Trump canceled, he added, “Filing for bankruptcy again? Perhaps 5th time is the charm…”
- Jeb Bush: “By the way, he’s an American, he’s a Christian,” he said of Obama during a speech. “His problem isn’t that he was born here or what his religion is.”
- White House: “I don’t think anybody who’s been paying attention to Republican politics is at all surprised. … The people who hold these offensive views are part of Mr. Trump’s base.”
- Bernie Sanders: “I think it’s a disgrace. … I thought we were beyond that.”
- Lindsey Graham: “At the end of the day, this is a defining moment for Mr. Trump. The man in the audience who asked that question needs to be put in his place.”
I agree with Graham on this……it is pathetic pandering….and funny how those sunshine supporters are silent on this…..and another indication of cowardice. But I know he is a birther and it is still part of who he is……
Speaking of veterans…..Trump did a fund raiser for a veterans group, Vets for a Strong America, with claims of 100’s of thousand’s of vets…..when the group is basically one group with $30 in the bank……
The event was sponsored by a group called Veterans for a Strong America. It’s a PAC, a political action committee, and a PAC, like all others, that’s tax exempt. But the founder of Veterans for a Strong America apparently forgot to tell the Trump campaign the group’s tax exempt status was revoked by the IRS last May.
The event was as powerful as the guns he stood under. Donald Trump, Tuesday night, on deck of the decommissioned battleship USS Iowa, there to pick up the endorsement of a group touting in its news release as having more than half a million supporters across the U.S.
“An endorsement from your group, with so many veterans, hundreds of thousands of veterans. I really appreciate that, Joe.”
But the group does not have a good track record of disclosing where its money goes. A quick check with the IRS finds the Veterans for a Strong America actually lost its tax exempt status last May for failing to file required reports. Here’s the document from the IRS, which shows that the group is appealing.
Another prime example of the trashiness of Trump’s supporters. Not one of the so-called supporters have condemned this act against veterans and to them veterans are a prop….ONLY. They like the rest of the country have NO true support for the veterans…..only when it is convenient……
Now the conclusion…..supporters are giddy over a person that has not given one idea for a solution other than a wall…..as if the wall will solve all our problems…..least not we forget that Trump is very good a tooting his own horn….if that is what it takes to be prez then by all means vote for him and with a little luck he will become president and then the whiners will truly have something to whine about….
Please vote for Donald Trump…..it will be the best thing that ever happen to politics in America! The voter will awaken to see just how fucking stupid they have been for the last 50 years.
Let the Age Of Realization Begin!
