A year ago, Matt K. Lewis, a Senior Columnist at the Daily Beast, did a column of concern trolling called, “‘Anybody but Trump’ Is the Only Way Forward for the GOP.” Lewis wrote, “The GOP’s never been closer to moving on from Donald Trump. “The Jan 6. Committee hearings, coupled with Trump’s mixed record of midterm primary endorsements, have left the 45th president bloodied and bruised even in the eyes of loyal Republican voters. And that’s generating speculation that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis may eventually supplant Trump as the party’s standard bearer.”
Excellent post. Easy poll. Fuck Joe Biden.
MAGA, or we will surely perish!
You have no choice but Trump, and thank GOD Trump is willing.
I was Cruz in 16 Primary, convinced that Trump would be Bush III. His ability to dispense with decade old swamp paradigms and act decisively won me over. His sincere push to decouple our economy from the CCP and pass lasting peace deals in Middle East won me over. Even when I was not a fan, I had always admired his bluntness and bluster, I just didn’t trust he had abandoned his friends’ politics in the Manhattan cocktail circuit. He proved me wrong,
He also changed millions of peoples’ worldviews and exposed the corruption rampant in the halls of power of so many institutions: federal law enforcement, federal courts, intelligence, diplomatic corps. defense, education, technology, and the corporate boardrooms. Multigenerational warfare against American ideals had been waged at the halls of power and Trump’s leadership exposed it all to everyone
I am reminded of the Roman Republic. Fearing that Caesar would name himself a king and disrupt their constitutional order the Senate conspired and murdered him. This absolutely shredded what was left of their constitutional order and set in motion the elevation of Augustus as Emperor.
The Dems would heed this history if they could think more than one corrupt move ahead.
Now, see if the Donald can restrain himself from childishly attacking any politician who fails to be sufficiently worshipful. It really is unattractive and will cost votes that might otherwise be his.
Lies...Lies...and Damned Lies....We now have the most dishonest and corrupt presidency hellbent on destroying the American way of life. It's as if NO ONE wants to hear the truth because it would be an admission of fault. Compare our situation now to the Eastern Front in WWII. The German and Russian people kept hearing how Stalingrad was "In German Hands from October 1, 1942 on." So what did Stalin do? He finally brought all his field commanders in and said "I need to hear the truth. Has Stalingrad fallen?" Even Stalin didn't know. When he was told the truth that Stalingrad was still (Barely) in Russian hands. one of the greatest military plans in history was formed and the once powerful German 6th army was destroyed and the German troops massacred.
As bad as things look now, in November 1942, the Russian front, things looked a lot worse and then the impossible happened.
Stalin wasn't known to be a religious man, but a lot of his countrymen were. I know it seems as if we are surrounded by these Godless whores, but there is a light, a small one right now, but it is getting brighter.
Remember your purchasing power in Feb 2020, the highest of your life. This was due to Trump unleashing cheap, American fossil fuel energy - the absolute basis of our economy; Biden reversed this on his day one leading to your current predicaments. This is undeniable, wonderful people.
And then he 'fought wars' by using said economic power to quell anything Russian, Iranian, or North Korean. Oh, and he sent one of your beautiful cruise missiles to KILL the worlds leading terrorist who was coddled by European 'elites' for years(Qassem Soleimani) rather than sending your men downrange for 20 years. Oh, and he lowered your corporate tax rate from the highest in the world(39% to 21%) which is prolly the sole reason we are not in a depression as we are bringing work back. Oh, he deregulated you by the tens-of-thousands.
There is no other choice, wonderful People. Turn off the boob tube and work to clean your voter rolls like DeSantis and Reynolds have done = full red states which means Normal, anti-racist life again.
Trump is the so obvious choice. At this point there are no fence sitters or undecideds, and in a real one person, one vote, inked finger election we all know who’d win.
But it isn’t and not only we know it but so does T. He can’t be making all this noise, having these blow out gatherings and parties for nothing. He must have an alternative plan beyond ‘Vote Harvesting’.
Let’s pray he does or the Country, the Constitution and all of us and our children are lost!
The democrat party is broken, the republican party is broken, and they're working to break America whether they realize it or not.
Remember a lot of people didn't support Trump before he was nominated the last time. Why they waffle now is beyond me.
Truth Don, and damn, you are good soldier doing work earlier than us!
"and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"
That is the sixth clause of the 1st Amendment Trump was expressing on Jan 6 2021. Molly Ball at Time told us he was right in her Feb 4 2021 essay on how to 'save' elections for the Acela corridor:
Don, you nailed it. I hope Kane puts this on CFP. These are very scary times.
I have really tried to understand the failed support for Trump by the GOP. It is blatantly obvious the government is corrupt and they are part of it. My only conclusion is they know how deeply rooted the corruption is and do not believe they can change it. They have given up. I hate to say it but if Trump beats all the fake charges against him to become the nominee, they (the idiots) won’t let him live to see his inauguration. They will do whatever it takes. The FBI/CIA will make it look like Iran did it.
Trump will get my vote. I am reminded of the 70s song by Stealer’s Wheel: Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
If they can stop Trump, game over. Who would risk their fortune and life for conservative people who are shockingly ungrateful? Or is there a new, improved definition of "conservative"? The Tea Party is at the root of all this.....the people....the ones who would throw the tea in the harbor. The Republicon Party doesn't seem to have many tea chunkers.
This commentary should be shared with every true American citizen . We are in very serious times .
"Is Donald Trump a uniquely dangerous person?"
You bet Trump is dangerous, in the same way that every superhero is dangerous. He is an existential threat to entrenched power and corruption.
Will the cage match Surber v. Schlichter be on pay-per-view?
