The Donald: Doing the Job the Media Won’t Do

Pages: 1 2

Donald Trump isn’t going to run for president.

He is rich, enjoys himself, says bold and often stupid things, trades his wife in for a younger model every few years, and calls Rosie O’Donnell a “big fat pig.” What’s not to like?

But President The Donald Trump? Really?!

He couldn’t take the scrutiny. Given his swashbuckling life and the media’s heightened scrutiny of things Republican, Trump would spend his entire campaign putting out fires. Whether it be shady-side-of-the-line business deals, “bimbo eruptions,” tax shenanigans, enemies looking to get even, or Lord knows what else, he’d barely have time to round up enough B-listers to keep “Celebrity Apprentice” afloat.

Then there is the matter of his ideology — as in, what exactly is it? Trump has alternately called Jimmy Carter the worst president ever, then George W. Bush the worst president ever, and now Barack Obama the worst president ever. This nouveau “conservative Republican” supported “universal health care”; advocated a tax on the rich; stood pro-choice on abortion; supported Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; called George W. Bush “evil”; proposed a 25 percent tariff on Chinese imports; and has contributed more money to Democrats than to Republicans. Whew!

Like Ross Perot — an earlier rich, thin-skinned businessman-turned-presidential-aspirant — Trump barks out orders, says jump and expects people to do so. Doesn’t work that way in politics. Try jabbing an index finger at an obnoxious New York Times reporter or a pesky rival Republican and saying, “You’re fired!”

Nor will he run as an independent — as he once threatened and then un-threatened to do. An indie candidacy would siphon votes away from the Republican candidate, requiring Trump to spend the rest of his life deflecting the blame for Obama’s re-election. No fun being the next Ralph Nader, who, after costing Al Gore Florida and the presidency in ’00, can’t get a table at Chuck E. Cheese’s.

This brings us to the only reason to pay attention to The Donald. He’s turning over rocks the media can’t even locate with a guide dog and a treasure map.

Take the “wacky” birther issue. Polls show that most Republicans question whether Obama was born in America. The Supreme Court calls this a “political question” and, therefore, outside of its power of judicial review. So legally, the birther issue is deader than Elvis. Besides, Obama’s principal 2008 primary opponent, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, couldn’t nail him on the issue.

If there were something there, the hounds of the Clintons would have found it.

But are the “birther” folks wackier than the majority of Democrats who believe George W. Bush had prior knowledge of 9/11 or are unsure that he did?

Are the “birther” folks wackier than the majority of Democrats who believe that “Bush Lied, People Died” our way into the Iraq War or are unsure that he did?

Are they wackier than the majority of Democrats who, in 2008, held Bush responsible when gas prices hit $4 a gallon?

    I'll vote for him. Why? Because he is the only man out there who still has a set of balls. Besides Hilary of course.

  • Jim

    Trump was right about who the worst presidents ever were.

    Since I am such a coward that I couldn't face the ridicule that a birther must face I have to move to a fall back position. That being that Obama was never born.

    Neither party or mainstream candidates have any idea what to do about the economy.Remind you of the Wiemar Government?

    Obama as a President is kind of G-d punishment for our country sins, for so many people stop to think rationaly and believe to demagogery and rethoric of Lefts/Marxists.
    How is it happened at all that more than half of voters after 9/11 voted for Barack Hussein Obama at all? What BHO did for two years he managed to distroy our country. He failed in domestic policy, he failed in foreign policy. But MSM still are washing many people brains to convince that he is Survivor. Still many ignorant, lazy, stupid are still swallow it. Unbelievable.
    Any Republican candidate is incomperably better than that supporter of Islamic terrorists, lawer-liar, incompetent poseur. G-d forbid!

      When G_d hates the same things you hate, that's a pretty good indicator you are breaking the commandments against both idolatry and using His name in vain.

    Trump is on record supporting putting the US Mililtary on the Republic's southern border, is against homosexual marriage, would likely appoint Rudy as AG and John Bolton as Sec of State. He's a strong supporter of Israel and has made it clear he would carry a big stick and use it. What's not to like? Attacks on Mr. Trump? The Left will let the Taliban wing of the GOP do it's work. The Republic is threatened by enemies inside the gates in a way it never has been in the past. Only a person of special courage, experience and charisma can hope to prevail. If not Mr. Trump, who?

    This author too is incapable to see the violations more obvious than uncertain birth place of the impostor, or the author deliberately and deceitfully equates natural born and common citizenship. Again: Obama's foreign father alone disqualifies him. Obama's Indonesian citizenship alone abrogates whichever birth citizenship he had. And on the top of it, there are plain felonies on him like fraudulent SSN, and others.

    It is not the "birther issue which is wacky": It is the party line to make America belive as though it is so.


  • Alexander Gofen

    Similarly, it is not as though Obama's principal 2008 primary opponent Sen. Hillary Clinton "couldn't nail him on the issue". She stopped doing it when she was told so. And even uglier: treasonous Repooblicans had never wished to nail the opponent because their role was designed to be the mere Plan B team of the same Soros party. Some "prominent Repooblicans" in fact campaigned for the opponent!

    The "parties" go out of their skin to burry the illegitimacy issue because this issue will inevitably burry them!

    Unlike Perrot-the spoiler, when both party wings remained intact, D. Trump will hopefully usher the "parties" into the grave where they do belong. Only that can possibly save America.

    I like Trump’s idea to seize the world’s second largest oilfields in Iraq. We conquered Iraq and to the victor go the spoils. If we don’t seize them, the Iraqi oilfields will be Iran’s oil fields in about 2 seconds after we leave.

    We also need to oust the Saudis, confiscate their oil wealth, and seize those oilfields too. Otherwise the Saudis will continue using those resources to finance and fund jihad against unbelievers perpetually. We need to neutralize the House of Islam and their global jihad, which threatens the entire free world, and there isn’t a faster or better way to do that than by seizing their oilfields and the Saudis massive wealth. Without oilfields and the Saudis massive wealth, the House of Islam can’t fund and finance the global jihad.

    We also need to ban and reverse Muhammadan immigration and convince our allies that they need to do the same thing as well.

      "We also need to oust the Saudis, confiscate their oil wealth, and seize those oilfields too."

      Do you really think our country can support the loss of blood and treasure such a move would take?

      I get venting, but try to be rational for one second.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Actually, Jim C, everyone that posts regularly on knows already that you are one of the most irrational posters to grace this website. In any event, if we don’t confiscate the enormous oil wealth of the Saudis along with their oilfields, the Saudis will simply continue using those resources against us as they already are, by the way, to fund the global jihad you are oblivious of and in the long run we will end up sacrificing far more than just blood and treasure, as we will also sacrifice our freedom as well.

        Hence, it’s either we take care of the problem now while it is still relatively small or otherwise keep denying it and kicking the can down the road until it mushrooms into all out thermo-nuclear war. You know it’s sort of like finding a small oil leak in your car and ignoring it until you blow your engine and you have to buy a whole new car, when you could have easily fixed the leak for pennies on the dollar. In other words, it’s common sense, but apparently you don’t have any.

        Indeed, according to you, why should we tolerate people to use their oil wealth and oil production to wage jihad against us? Now if they didn’t use their oil wealth and oil production to wage jihad against us I wouldn’t have any problem with it. Nevertheless, that is not the case.

      You are "Spot on" my friend!!! Agree!!!!

    • Alexander Gofen

      ObamaYoMoma: You are absolutely correct! To put it in other words, we are living in the time when a very wrong paradigm dominates the minds: the paradigm as though trade – even the trade of strategic resources – is always the answer.

      Yet it is a suicidal answer when this trade in fact transfers the immense wealth to our deadly enemies like Islamic nations (or even China).

      Our tragedy is that now we are much farther from changing this paradigm than ever. In fact with the Islamic impostor in the White House and all his clique we are much deeper in this suicidal paradigm than ever.

      The unique moment was missed on 9/12/2001 when Mecca and Medina ought to be nuked.

    Run, Trump, run!

    (He's not, but we can dream, can't we?)

  • Jim_C

    Again, "the media," and the tired, goofball trope that it's your embattled little coterie of freedom fighters against the monolith of Katie Couric and George Stephanopolous. What can these magical, all-powerful beings do, again, that Hillary Clinton and every single Republican involved with the legal system couldn't do?

    Well, nothing, and Elder knows it; but he also knows its his job to keep the monkey cage's bars rattling!

    The Donald had to open with something and why not question Obama's
    eligibility, it gets attention and is a fine place to start and move on to the
    bigger issues, the glaring facts that are so stark that the American voters
    minds need to wake up to our distress. Living in denial is what Trump
    must cure Americans of and how silly to think this is his platform, it is
    just the opening pizazz which will possibly astound the critics who are
    against anyone not for Leftist/Islamist poison. It is just starting, sit back
    and learn if you must but do not forget that this may be enjoyable as
    someone with the gravitas to shove it down their throats is on the move.
