Why Trump Wins

I know that some of my readers believe that I sit around all day reading every Leftist site I can get my hands on…..as usual they would be mistaken….you see I like to get a total overview of any situation or issue…..I even read the American Conservative…..

Regardless of how the election turns out in November the one underlying fact is…..Trump wins…..or should I call it…Trunpism?

The candidate has changed the very complexion of the GOP (you may take that any way you prefer)…….

Everything that has happened in the past 20 years has widened the opportunity for the nationalist persuasion in American politics. Pat Buchanan cracked open the door in the GOP; Perot widened it further, as did, in idiosyncratic ways, Ron Paul. But Trump, with a unique blend of showmanship, independent means, and sheer nerve, has blown this door wide open. It remains open because globalist policies have failed a growing number of Americans. Trump’s weaknesses as a candidate, well known to everyone, may keep him from winning. But his run will change the nature of the GOP, and it is very hard to see how the old GOP elites and neoconservative establishment will put the lid on the aspirations Trump has unleashed, in this election cycle or those to come.

I believe that the GOP is changing….but the question is…..for better or for worse?

‘Absolutely no value’

As with anything that the mentally challenged do not understand then they say it is “in the Constitution” and if they disagree then they totally ignore any constitutional value…..there are even some politicians that carry a pocket copy of the document and wipe it out whenever they try to make a lame point…..and at one point the GOp after taking control opf Congress passed a deal that the Constitution reference would be attacked to every bill……that like all things GOP went like the Do-Do……

I have even heard of one judge that said there was “no value” in studying the Constitution….that ought to get him in some sort of trouble with the Repubs…….

Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner stated Friday that he sees “no value” in studying the U.S. Constitution.

Posner, a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, alleges in an op-ed for Slate that there is “absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation” because he believes the founding document is no longer relevant to contemporary society.

“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century,” Posner argues, adding, “the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.”

My thought is that we either take the Constitution as written or we change it……I will agree with this judge that it does need to be modernized to bring it into the 21st century.

But can you imagine the total bullsh*t that would transpire with a Constitutional Convention?

What would you say about this idea?

Talk And No One Listens

I could go on and on about the latest attack in Turkey..,..but why?  Everyone’s minds are made up and nothing anyone says, no matter how rational it may be will they change their minds….

So I just want to point out  a thing that seems that is a universal form of stupidity…..

Before the last attack in the US……Orlando to be exact……the FBI had the shooter in the sights but decided that he was not of any threat….there was a report that some owner of a gun store try to warn the FBI of the guy and the strange questions he was asking….to be fair there is also a report that this owner had little info on the shooter so we can sort of let the FBI off the hook….well you can…I will not.

I bring this up because of a report I read about the attack in Istanbul……

Turkish intelligence units allegedly warned relevant government bodies about a possible attack by Islamic State terrorist in Istanbul week before Tuesday night’s deadly attack by three suspected ISIS suicide bombers.

According to Turkish media Wednesday, the country’s intelligence apparatus sent a warning letter to state institutions some 20 days ago about a potential attack.

Turkish Hurriyet Daily News cited Doğan TV as reporting that the June warning message mentioned the names of potential targets, including Istanbul Atatürk Airport.

These types of reports keep coming out….and each time some vital piece of intel has been missed or ignored….

Is that a coincidence or by design?

Just asking

Income Inequality Will Get Worse

The Dems and their candidates have all jumped on the income inequality thing….they have set about outlining so many different programs that will eliminate this growing problem if they are elected……to that I has Bullsh*t!

Why would I say that?

They are lying…..they are promising something they cannot deliver….all to get a vote and to go to the Big House of government…….

It will get worse before it gets better…if it ever does……

We’ve all heard about rising income inequality, and for good reason: It’s a huge problem. Just consider the fact that the wealthiest 1% of Americans accounted for roughly 21.2% of all earnings in 2012, compared to just 8.9% in 1973, according to UC Berkeley’s Center for Equitable Growth.

But far less obvious is the eventuality that things will get much worse before they get better. Don’t believe it? Here are a couple of specific reasons why we’re in for more darkness before dawn, plus some ideas on how we can fix the underlying problems.
