Three Months Ago This Would Mean The Conversation Was Over ……. I Told You So!!!! Christie Endorses Trump!!!!

Christie endorses Trump for president



I was wondering what post I would make today.  Honestly, I had ruled out a “Trump” post.  I was thinking about doing a crop production vs global warming post.  But, then, I saw this. 

I don’t recall if I stated this in a post or in the comment section, but, I did state that the establishment will coalesce around Trump.  How did I know this?  ….. I mean other than the obvious such as embracing socialized medicine and whatnot …… 

Because he’s a “negotiator”, because he’s a “deal maker”, or as Jimmy Carter stated, he’s malleable. 

Look, I’m not talking trash, I’m showing what’s real.  Chris Christie just endorsed Donald Trump.  Jimmy Carter told the Brits that Trump would be preferable to Cruz because he’s “malleable”. 

Super Tuesday is just 4 days away.  Trump supporters are getting played from two different directions, but, they’re blowing the same way. 

Care to know why Trump seems impervious to the press?  Because they don’t hound him on the same issues.  People see this as a strength of Trump.  Trump, most likely, believes he has this strength.  It’s a façade.  It’s built by the press.  Day one, after the Repub nomination, the gloves come off.  Then, all of the sudden his taxes will be a big deal.  Best case scenario, his will look similar to Romney’s.  All of the sudden his hypocrisy about bad language will be played, over and over, again.  All of the sudden, his lack of policy specifics will be a big deal.  Suddenly, he’s going to have to know the names of all the tiny little countries and what they are and who they are and how it relates to our foreign policy.  He’s going to have to know what the leftist Kurds call themselves and the difference between the rest of the Kurds are.  Then, he’s going to have to distinguish his vision of healthcare between Hillary’s.  Then, he’s going to have to explain why he outsources jobs to Mexico.  Then, he’s going to have to explain why he hired illegals.  …… BTW, I’m not making any of this up.  …… The problem is, unlike today, he’ll have to answer these questions.  No, it won’t be fair.  We all know the media is a bunch of leftarded bastages.  But, these are questions he’ll have to answer.  The problem is, he can’t answer any of them, and a lot more ….. with the exception of the “Kurds” (with a lot of future coaching). 

The fact is, Trump doesn’t know anything of any pertinence.  Well, sure, I’m certain he knows real estate ….. finally.  He’s against illegal immigration because …. why?  I mean, specifically, what is it that Trump has stated that affirms that he knows why it is so harmful to our society?  Were it me, I would hound on the security issue.  It’s a huge issue and doesn’t play into the “xenophobic” meme of the left.  He could even play up the 9/11 “I was there” bs and win some on that!  But, I would also stress the continuous downward pressure on wages it causes.  <——– That rings home to millions of Americans.  But, none of this is about policy ….. yet.  Later, it will be about policy, it will be about the past, it will be about vision.  It won’t be being able to just call someone stupid or a liar and going home the next day.  Once the nomination is over, we’ll know what Trump ate for breakfast in 1999. 

Were I a Trump supporter, all of what I stated above would be fine, if I believed the amount of Trump supporters were enough to carry the election.  But, they’re not even close.  That said, I believe there’s a fair chance, fair…… that is to say about a 30% chance, right now, that Trump will be our next president.  The Repub nomination is his to lose.  I pray for a 3rd party next election. 

Don’t blame me, or the people like me.  I stated long ago that I could not support someone like Trump.  The Repubs are going to nominate him anyway, and be mad, once again, because conservatives couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed to support someone who has no interest in supporting our ideas.  He can’t even be bothered to provide lip service in the Repub nomination process, he’s damned sure not going to be bothered if he’s president. 

From the polls, he’s going to win big on Tuesday.  I see only Texas and New Mexico in play.  Rubio is far behind in Florida, and Kasich is behind in Ohio.  It could change, but, I doubt it.  Because Cruz will probably win Texas, he’s going to stay in the race.  The rest will stay in the race because ….. well, they can and their egos prevent them from gracefully exiting.  Even if Kasich wins Ohio, he has zero chance of winning.  Why is Carson still in it?  He has less than zero chance of winning ….. anything.  He’s the only candidate less knowledgeable on policy than Trump. 

Today, with Christie supporting Trump, it’s the end for Rubio.  The establishment is going with Trump.  Even if Rubio were to win Florida, it’s too much to overcome.  But, he’ll stay in it.

And, then, the US will get the negotiating, deal making, malleable president they deserve, be it from the left, or the imaginary right.

    you know…..the exact same was said about Obama
    …and he won

    I know you like Cruz, but Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich could not fill up a local Dairy Queen
    They are just not exciting….and not a one of them could beat Hillary or even Bern

    I’ll say it again…..Americans want a rock star
    …more than they don’t want Hillary

    I just posted this on another thread…..explains it better than I can

    • Latitude says:

      you know…..I really really like Cruz….but no one is listening to him
      I want to beat Hillary….and I think Cruz has about as much chance as Sylvia the drag queen that works the window at our Dairy Queen

    • suyts says:

      It’s weird, because I see it the other way. Trump is the only Repub candidate who could possibly lose to Hillary or Sanders. None of the other ones can lose to either. Trump is the only one. Carson can beat Hillary. ….. there’s nothing there to pound on him, as the press will do, as soon as Trump wins the Repub nomination. Kasich would beat Hillary ….. Rubio and Cruz, as well. (The polls show Cruz and Rubio beating Hillary while Trump loses, this has been consistent.) The default is that a Repub will win after two miserable terms from a Dim.

      The reasoning is simple. In the election, you’re going to vote for the person who best represents you. For the leftards, that’s easy, it’s either Sanders or Hillary ….it doesn’t really matter who. For Repubs, it does matter. I’m not going to vote for someone who campaigns on supporting Planned Parenthood. I’m just not going to do that. Millions will do the same. I’m not going to support a guy who campaigns on socialized medicine. I’m just not going to do that. Millions will do likewise. I’m not going to believe a guy who says he’s going to bring back the jobs to America while his clothing line is made in Mexico. I’m just not going to do that. Millions will see it likewise.

      At this juncture, I see very little distinction between Hillary and the Donald. Well, there’s a pretend wall which Trump has no idea how to make happen, if he were to actually desire it to happen. I seriously doubt his seriousness towards such end. He claims he’ll force Mexico to pay for it, but, the damned thing has already been paid for!!!! But, he doesn’t even know that.

      I love the bluster and bravado. I hate the fact that there’s no substance behind it. But, beyond the lack of substance, what little substance he has is entirely contrary to what I would advocate.

        • DirkH says:

          Mostly good writeup by this Robinson guy, only, he thinks children are a disease:

          “Furthermore, since Trump is not an anti-Planned Parenthood zealot (being the only one willing to stick up for women’s health in a room full of Republicans), it will be hard for Clinton to paint him as the usual anti-feminist right-winger.”

          The lunatics, their madness always shines through after a few sentences.

      • Latitude says:

        Right now….Trump is trying to secure the nomination, so his attacks and jokes are directed at Cruz and Rubio mostly…
        Once he gets the nomination….he will focus on Hillary, the news media, etc

        He’s the only one that can make Hillary, the media….look like total fools
        …and he will do it, every thing they throw at him just slides right off….because he knows how to not react to it….and turn around and make fun of them
        …and he’s damn good at it and funny

  2. Me says:

    Well Mr. Christie may make good cookies, but he couldn’t get’er done. Pardon the punn! But apparently last time Mitt was the guy and then did a nose dive, and later it turns out, he was no different on Cli-Sci change and the Zero Care. So a dozen of one Half Dozen of the other. The point is last time you wanted to get people to rally around the guy you liked, and now you don’t want to do it! I liked Cruz as well but lets face it, it is tha same as Zero. But back then I Liked Ron Paul better, But that doesn’t matter because I really have no say or pull any more than my one vote up here! And I see and knew what we were going to end up with.

  3. Me says:

    Anyway I was sad to hear about what happened in your state. I wouldn’t wish that to happen to anyone, but people need to be able to fight back so this doesn’t happen again, and everytime something like that happens it because someone doesn’t want guns near them for reason. And this is always the end result.

    • suyts says:

      Thanks, Me. Your thoughts are appreciated. You can’t make sense of lunatic behavior. …..

      • Me says:

        Hey, I hear ya. And yeah, you’re right about that. Once it is out of the bottle, the only thing you can do is equalize it, meet it with opposing force. It’s sad but it is what’s you have to do.

  4. I. Lou Minotti says:

    Don’t delete me due to my new e-mail address, James. I’m the same old I. Lou Minotti but with a new permanent residence outside of the People’s Republic of New Jersey. That also means a new IP address.

    But I can’t say that I told you so if I never told you so. Lunatic political behavior is common to New Jersey–in much the same way as it’s common in the People’s Republic of North Korea. Anyone that would think about moving to either place needs their goddamn head examined, while those that leave rewarded publically for their God-blessed common sense.

    Trump and Christie are merely power-hungry butt buddies that have gained power not by adherence to principle, but (butt) by what works for them. They’re both idiots that are worried about breaking their manicured fingernails. Goddamn political pussies with a bent towards femininity and private property theft, which cunts are usually wont to do.

    I. Lou Minotti is now posting from our new, peaceful residence and beautiful home in God’s conservative countryside otherwise known as “bitter-clingerville” by a certain third-world race-baiter that now happens to occupy some official office, somewhere. South-central Pennsylvania remains a bastion of kick-ass truthspeakers, and we’re elated that we’ve been delivered.

    We thank you and JSue for your prayers, along with the steady eddies that are committed to your website/blog. There’s nothing better than living in the country:

    May our Lord and Savior continue to bless you and yours.

    • suyts says:

      Lou, I don’t check my spam bin as near as frequently as I once did. Sorry about the wait. I don’t delete (block) anyone ….. except for bizarre lunatic stalkers. (There always has to be one.)

      I would ask that we calm the language down just a peg. I understand the sentiment, but, for some people it leaves the wrong impression. The notion for this blog is to get people to think, discuss, rethink, rather than make a knee jerk reaction about the expressive words on this blog.

      Welcome back, Lou!

      God blesses every day we wake up! I’m certain He will continue to bless us as we travel through, as I’m certain He’ll continue to bless you and yours!

      • I. Lou Minotti says:

        Love you, brother. Thanks for the welcome back from our new physical and IP addresses. Mrs. Minotti & me are up to our you-know-whats in alligators otherwise called boxes and moving materials. But since we’ve got our new cable service (imagine an old dude like me pulling coax during a tornado warning preparing for a Comcast tech to show up the next day–and who would never want to break a fingernail), I’ve been logging onto Suyts as time permits.

        Before I go for probably the next day or two–Ted Cruz is the only thinking, Biblical and Constitutional candidate God has chosen to offer America in this election cycle. If we vote for the wrong person, it might be our last chance as a nation to redeem ourselves. The last thing our country or world needs is another goddamn fair-haired pompodorious statist like Hitler who thinks nothing of stealing people’s private property for his 3P pay-to-play schemes.

        Keep up your good work.

  5. DirkH says:

    “Suddenly, he’s going to have to know the names of all the tiny little countries and what they are and who they are and how it relates to our foreign policy.”

    I don’t think the press in the USA or Germany can play those games anymore. BTW even if you answer such questions correctly they’ll just look for something else to make you look bad. All of this stops working once people lose trust in the media, and sees through their game of just repeating that one soundbyte or video snippet over and over again, by now everyone knows how that works.

    They’re trying this with the AfD in Germany for months now and it doesn’t stick. We’re in total war against the media and this war will only be over when they’re all fired. What makes this total opposition easier in Germany is an 8 bn a year propaganda state media apparatus that we get forced to fund. People actually go to jail for refusing the 18 EUR a month per household.

    So, the German system is more ham-fisted in this regard. The state media are kinda MSNBC’s, quality-wise.

    Getting an endorsement from Christie is like getting one from Obama. Christie is a Progressive. That said, I will still vote for Trump if he is the alternative to the demosocialists. Sitting out elections is childish, and selfish.

    • suyts says:

      No, sitting out will signal that we won’t be conned any more. Why would I get out of bed to vote for one of two indistinguishable people? What’s the difference between an establishment Repub and a Dim? Trump is every bit the socialist the Dims are. …… and BTW, I’m not sitting out the election, I’m just not going to vote for either presidential candidate if Trump wins the Repub nomination. I won’t be a part of electing someone who I believe will be harmful to the US. I love my country and my countrymen more than that.

      • gator69 says:

        Yes! We have seen how successful sitting out elections has been in producing better candidates.

        Hillary allowed our brave men on Benghazi to be murdered by terrorists, and then lied to their families while standing over their coffins. This monster should not be rewarded by a “sit out”.

        Bernie is a proud socialist who despises capitalism, and if you cannot see the difference between him and Trump, I am sorry.

        Siting out is selfish. You are condemning the rest of us to an ever leftward shifting Overton Window. Not to mention surrendering SCOTUS nominations, further moving us to the left.

        Then there is the fact that you previously said you would not sit out.

        You cutting off everyone else’s nose to spite your face is not a noble venture, and obviously does not lead to better quality noses. I for one do not appreciate quitters who leave me to face the consequences.

        James, I love you like a brother, and I would say the same to my brother. In fact, I said as much to my mother who despises Trump. Don’t let us, and the country you love, down.

        • >>
          Yes! We have seen how successful sitting out elections has been in producing better candidates.

          I’m not sure what you mean by this, but if you mean that conservative sat out the last election, then the facts don’t support it.

          Here are the stats for the last forty years:
          1976 20% lib 49% mod 31% con
          1980 17% lib 46% mod 28% con
          1984 16% lib 42% mod 33% con
          1988 18% lib 45% mod 33% con
          1992 21% lib 49% mod 30% con
          1996 19% lib 47% mod 34% con
          2000 20% lib 50% mod 29% con
          2004 21% lib 46% mod 34% con
          2008 22% lib 44% mod 34% con
          2012 25% lib 41% mod 35% con

          More conservatives voted in 2012 than in 2008–about 3 million more. And in the last forty years, the largest percentage of conservatives voted in 2012.


        • gator69 says:

          And according to your unsourced data, even more “libs” showed up in 2012. The data you provide doesn’t say who they voted for, or wether or not the “cons” and “mods” were D’s or R’s. The fact remains that if conservatives could stop their petty infighting, and show up to vote, they would win every election.

        • You can see the data here: Their data was based on exit polls, so we’re talking about people who actually vote. The Wikipedia site shows the same numbers. There 78% of the conservatives voted for McCain in 2008 and 82% of the conservatives voted for Romney in 2012. It’s a pipe dream to believe that conservatives who never vote will someday show up and vote. If they haven’t shown up for the last forty years, they aren’t going to show up now.


        • gator69 says:

          Of course I do not expect 100% of conservatives to show up and vote, but it would be nice if conservatives could learn a lesson from the D’s, and pull together as a team. Childishly taking their marbles and going home any time they don’t get 100% of what they want is obviously not working.

        • The numbers for conservatives on that Gallup poll are smaller than they should be. I’ve hung up on telephone polls for years, so I know they aren’t counting me.


        • gator69 says:

          I have actually never been called for such a poll, and niether has my brother or mother. He who counts the votes…

      • Latitude says:

        I see your point…and in a sane world would agree with you 100%
        …this isn’t a sane world

        Republicans and democrats do not care who wins, or which side wins…and republicans will just as easily throw this election to the democrats…which is exactly what they are doing right now

      • Latitude says:

        ” What’s the difference between an establishment Repub and a Dim?”

        …….none, same dog, different collar

        The republicans will throw this election to Hillary…if they can’t get Rubio. All they want is a game player and it doesn’t matter which party.

        We’ve all been had. They have us running around waving our little red and blue flags like it makes some difference……….same dog, different collar

        The republicans will destroy Cruz if he gets the nomination.
        That’s my sole reason for voting for someone that the republican party is attacking and telling me not to vote for……the wrong people are telling me not to vote for Trump

      • ‘I won’t be a part of electing someone who I believe will be harmful to the US.’

        May be exactly what you’ll be doing.

      • suyts says:

        Hmm, let me see if I can be clearer ……. Donald Trump is a socialist. Look at his positions on healthcare and taxes. Donald Trump is also a big believer in a big and powerful central government. In other words, he stands for everything a Dim stands for. Calling yourself a Republican doesn’t mean you’re any better for the nation than a Dim.
        Now, some may believe he’s going to build a wall to protect our borders. It’s a fine idea. But, if you look at Trumps ideas and actions, my best bet is that he has no intention of building the wall, or even policing our borders.

        The way it stands right now, the top 3 candidates are a socialist, a sociopathic socialist, and a socialist who calls himself a Republican.

        For the record, I didn’t sit out any of the presidential elections since Reagan’s second term. (Too young for Reagan the first time.) Throughout all of my undying loyalty, I see that the Repub candidates have gotten progressively worse over the years.

        The fact of the matter is, we’ve already lost. And, we lost by committing to and supporting the Repub candidates, regardless of who they sent up. And, they count on our continued support. Does anyone seriously believe we’d be any better off today if McCain had won? Would we have any less entanglements abroad? Would our border be any more secure. Would McCain handle the economy any better? There is nothing in his voting record over the last 8 years that would indicate that things would even be the least bit better.

        • gator69 says:

          Of course not everything would have been a win under a McCain term, but then not everything would have been a loss.

          Given the choice of the lesser of two evils, I will always choose the lesser.

          As was once said, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice”.

          I would ask that you not choose the greater of two evils for me, my family, my friends, and all the rest who do not deserve it.

        • Latitude says:

          BINGO… you got it, I was waiting on you to spell it out better
          Let me try to wrap that up with a bow on it.

          The republicans do not care if they win or not….hear me out on this.

          For one thing, as long as we elect a player, it doesn’t matter which team they are on. Republicans ran McCain…Romney….knowing there’s no way they would beat Obama. Now they are pushing Rubio so hard it’s sickening….for the same reasons.

          For another, I think the republicans have figured out they play better when they are the underdogs….gets them more congressmen and senators etc

          But here’s the catcher….republicans did not pick Trump

          Trump may be all the things you say….or he may not…but he’s was not the republicans choice at all..and they are doing everything in their power to knock him out. There’s superpacs with tons of money they are not spending right now….they are saving it for a full out and out attack on Trump if he wins the nomination….republican superpacs! attacking the republican nomination for president!!!

          What does that tell you???? It tells me that we have been had for years….same dog…different collar…..both sides are in bed together and have been

          ..and the republicans don’t care if you sit it out and don’t vote…’re not going to be sending them some message….they are sending you the message that they want you to sit it out…and they want Hillary to win. Hillary is their player!
          …they want to give us two choices…Hillary and Rubio….both of them players for the same team

          The more republicans attack Trump…the more I’m convinced he is not their player. For some reason Trump scares the hell out of all of them…and that’s the best endorsement for him I’ve ever seen.

          McCain, Romney, Rubio…..Clinton, Biden, Obama…etc etc all the same team

        • Latitude says:

          “And, they count on our continued support”

          NO THEY DON’T………

          Both sides count on manipulating these elections so “they” win…….
          The count on us being predictable….

        • Latitude says:

          it’s a double bingo!…..

          Let’s see if I have this right.
          The republican elite are donating $25 million to Rubio..their boy of choice.
          But donating $75 million to the trash Trump fund.

          ..and it their boy doesn’t carry Florida…they are going to pull in their secret weapon game player…..a three time loser….but a player they can count on

          We have been had by the republican party.

          Bombshell: Insider Leaks Koch Bros, Rubio Plan to Stop Trump
          Bombshell: Roger Stone reveals establishment using Mitt Romney as Plan B if Rubio fails!

        • suyts says:

          Yeh, the establishment would prefer Rubio. But, they’re bailing. That’s the point of the post. Christie just endorsed Trump. Like I said, 3 months ago, this would have been a death kiss for Trump. It would have been over for Trump. Now, it boosts his creds ….. He is, btw, going to sweep the NE and most of the South. The NE, I knew and understood. The South, I don’t get it. Laughably, Cali is the game changer/hope for anyone other than Trump.

          I think Cruz will take Texas. I think Rubio will lose Florida to Trump. I think Kasich will lose Ohio to Trump. New Mexico, Arkansas, and Utah are in play with NM and Arkansas leaning towards Cruz. But, you never know how it will go if and when the others quit, or if they’ll quit. There is always the “bandwagon” effect, which favors Trump.

          I read somewhere that the blood drawing Rubio and Cruz did on Trump in the last debate actually hurt the prospects of someone else winning because it encouraged both to stay in the race. To a point, this is true. At this point, the only way for Trump to lose is if 3 other Repub candidates leave the race. I don’t really see that happening, but, I don’t see either Rubio or Kasich staying in if they lose their home state. If Cruz loses Texas he’ll drop out, but, I don’t think he’s going to lose Texas. …. It’s weird, because in the scenario I can see possibly playing out the race will depend upon states who will never vote Repub regardless of who the Repub nominee is …… Cali, Oregon, and Washington. That said, it’s probably not going to happen. If I had to bet, I’d bet that Trump will win the Repub nomination. And, I’d bet that if he does, he’ll lose in the general election. But, I’ve been wrong before.

          The thing is, it doesn’t really matter with the Dims. All the dead people in the US will turn out for the Dim nominee, regardless of who it is. It’s simply not the same dynamic for the Repubs. The wildcard this election …. as it is in most elections, is the independent voter. Most of them are uninterested voters. They can’t be bothered with history, positions, or policy, they just vote because some a$$hole taught them they needed to vote.

        • suyts says:

          Gator, my point is that I don’t see McCain as being a “lesser of two evils”. He’s just as “evil” as Obama. McCain is a moron. His view of the US is so far from my view it is that he could not possibly represent me in any manner. Again, I would ask, in what way do you believe that a McCain presidency would be better than an Obama presidency for the US? Because he ran as a Repub? Look at his voting record. He’s a scumbag. Maybe a little bit different scumbag than Obama, but, no less the scumbag Obama is.

          What good is it to gain in one area and lose in two others, when the other alternative is to lose in two areas and be less of an evil in the other?

          Liberty first, which economics then follows, and foreign policy is then dictated. Show me where McCain would have been better for the US ….. a “lesser of two evils” than Obama. McCain understands none of those! Worse, he’s demonstrated that he doesn’t care to understand these things to further American interests! He’s not a “lesser” enemy, he’s a different enemy. ….. Well, not really a different enemy, just a different label. IMHO, Trump is worse than McCain ….. a more of two evils, if you will.

          We are, as a nation, making distinctions without any real differences. Do you want your taxes raised by a Repub or a Dim? Which wars do you believe we should be fighting right now? Which wars do you believe we’ll stop fighting with Trump as president? Which wars do you believe he’ll continue? …… This nightmare we call “Obamacare” …. Trump is the lesser of what evil in this regard? His vision is exactly the same as Hillary’s in the 80s-90s!!!!! In what way or manner is this a “lesser of two evils”?

          The only difference I see is that if someone or some people question the leadership, we won’t have to have the media call us a dumbass/backwoods/racist/f’tard, our president will do it for them. …. assuming Hillary or the Donald gets elected. Bernie would probably still rely on the media.

        • gator69 says:

          So McCain would have brought us Obamacare?

          Really James, you need to do some soul searching, and get a grip on reality.

        • Me says:

          For the people and by the people is democracy, and is socialist. And yes there is a difference when people build their system and others want a free for all to get votes to gain power. And that is what borders and sovereignty are for. Our systems of demorcacy works better than the others, but now, just barely.

        • Me says:

          James, if that was the case with Christie, then they know that and that is what they were counting on to happen, and yet it backfired, just like everything else they tried.

        • Me says:

          And now that has backfired, what happened? Mit Romney suddenly appears! Wonder why?

        • Me says:

          And that will backfire as well!

        • Me says:

          And the people that done in Mit Romney, CNN, is all over that and now they are buds again err something. Until they have no need of him! That ‘s the game!

        • suyts says:

          What?!?!?!? McCain bringing us Obamacare? No, probably not, McCain is much too much the dullard to bring us something like that. But, then, you’re asking me to tip towards Trump, who believes Obamacare doesn’t go far enough. Which is it? Who needs to do some soul searching? You don’t like Obamacare, but, you want a guy who believes in socialized medicine? What are you talking about? Are you not aware of Trump’s “single payer” healthcare position?

          This is the stuff I don’t understand. It all goes to the same end! You just wish a different path to the same end? Does it really matter that we get there just a few years slower? What? That we enjoy a slow and painful destruction of our nation? And, hate a quicker death?

          There’s no “slowing” it, anymore. We’re here. We are at the point which we all knew was coming. You and I are actually discussing which socialist is less evil and discussing about which one is “best” to lead our nation.

          For review of some things we all already know. All socialism leads to, and is, totalitarianism. Losing one liberty is no less tragic than losing another. Government, in its best form is a necessary evil, in it’s worst (larger), an intolerable one.

          Gator, what are we talking about? Show me how Trump is different. Show me where he stands for a limited government. Show me where he believes in individual rights. Show me where he stands on proper taxation.

          I can show you where he stands for a more empowered central government. I can show you where he believes in an even more progressive taxation than our current government now imposes. I can show you where he used the government to impose on the individual. Worse, he’s non-repentant of his actions. He doesn’t regard private property rights as anywhere close to sacrosanct. There is no “lesser of two evils”, there is evil. I would suggest others do some “soul searching” and think about what they want, and what they want for their fellow countrymen.

          Personally, I don’t want some baby ripping, eminent domain loving, socialized medicine embracing, progressive taxation humping, scumbag to represent me. But, then, that describes the top three runners in the race for our presidency. There’s a distinction in there somewhere, I’m certain. But, again, it would be a distinction without a difference.

        • gator69 says:

          James, I am not saying that Trump is not a Progressive. Personally I cannot stand him, but even so, I do see a difference between him and the D’s. Sure he sucks on big government and abortion, but if you focus on differences instead of similarities, you can find a difference. Why you cannot, I do not know.

        • Me says:

          Janes, it all boils down to belief then, and not what you think?

        • Me says:

          Sorry, James, I misspelled it earlier, ya know Jim may satire err somethang again err something!

        • DirkH says:

          “Show me where McCain would have been better for the US ….. a “lesser of two evils” than Obama.”
          “IMHO, Trump is worse than McCain ….. a more of two evils, if you will. ”

          Obama and McCain are career politician creatures. Trump is not.

          MIGHT make a difference. Just might.

          my best bet is that he has no intention of building the wall, or even policing our borders.
          Well, the republican party firmly believes he will do it.
          ..and they are going to do everything in their power to stop him

      • Latitude says:

        Why would I get out of bed to vote for one of two indistinguishable people?
        I don’t see them as indistinguishable….I see a huge difference in one candidate that both parties would be happy with….and another candidate that the republican establishment is spending millions trying to eliminate.

        What’s the difference between an establishment Repub and a Dim?
        zero…..I’m just as sick of the republicans. The republicans are not conservatives, they are no longer our party…and they are bought and owned by the very people they claim to be against. The mob bought both parties years ago.

        The republicans are not attacking Cruz, Rubio…..if Rubio does not carry Florida….they are going to blow him off and run Romney……Koch’s are spending $75 million on a campaign to make Trump lose…..

        They are not spending $75 million on a campaign to make Hillary lose! or Cruz or Rubio

        These are the rich SOB’s, the mob, that are running this country. The own the republican and democrat parties.

        The one thing Trump has been consistent on….is stop sending our jobs and money overseas…and securing the border.

        That makes Trump a direct threat to the mobs money…..the mob makes money on illegals, these trade deals, Mexico, China…all at the expense of the middle class in this country….they are bleeding us dry. And don’t kid yourself, the mob is making tons of money on the illegal drug trade that goes along with our open borders.

        That is why the mob is spending $75 million on a campaign to stop Trump. (and not Cruz, Rubio, of Hillary)

        …..and that is the biggest endorsement for Trump there could ever be

    Fun fact: German govt official just admitted they lost track of 500,000 immigrants! Never got registered and/or disappeared.

    Americans. Get physical cash while you can. Supply is tight. There will be a run on USD notes once NIRP spreads.

    Notice that while 3.17 ratio of Fed-issued electronic “Dollars” vs. physical cash sounds like one of the better ratios, the USD notes are used all over the world as they are pretty indestructible and still hold their value.
    Best ratio is of course the ECB as Europeans still do most of their business in cash. And those Euros are mostly in Europe as we never replaced the USD in many countries as the “safe” currency.

    I’ve been hoarding Euro notes since 2014 when they turned bank deposits into unsecured credit to the bank.

    Donald Trump: The real estate mogul has repeatedly written tweets skeptical of global warming. Trump has called global warming a “hoax,” “mythical,” a “con job,” “nonexistent,” and “bullshit.” He views policies created to fight global warming as hurting U.S. manufacturing competitiveness with China.

  11. Latitude says:

    This whole GD country is being run by the mob. Both political parties are in on it. They are making billions on these trade deals, Mexico, China….and we are being had…running around waving our little red and blue flags. All making money off the middle class in this country…and all in on it.
    The one candidate that has said he would put a stop to it… the one candidate they are all out to stop at any cost.
    I was wondering why all these republican politicians were so against Trump….but never would say exactly why they are so against him. Then I read this, and it all snapped together.
    Koch….$75 million to stop Trump at any cost
    Trump is the threat to their gravy train. The gravy train they have pushing on us since day one.
    How are all these free trade agreements benefiting us?….they’re not….they are benefiting people like the Koch brothers.

    Trump’s one thing has been beating on sending jobs over seas, tariffs on imported goods, sending out money to China and Mexico, etc.

    Trump is going to kill their gravy train!…….that’s why the can’t say exactly what they don’t like about him……..

    Jeff Sessions just endorsed Trump…..Sessions is not part of the machine

    • I was listening to Todd Herman the other day. Todd Herman is a local talk show host on KTTH here in the Seattle area ( On KTTH, Rush Limbaugh comes on from 9am to noon, Michael Medved is on from noon to 3pm, and Todd Herman is on from 3pm to 6pm. Todd Herman’s guest was Michael Medved (he sometimes stays over to be on Todd’s show–they’re both local). They were discussing their vote if Trump wins the nomination. This is the first time I’ve heard Michael Medved say he would not vote for Trump (previously he said he’d vote for whomever won the Republican nomination). Todd Herman will not vote for Trump either. (Todd Herman took over the show from Bin Shapiro a few months ago.) They said Ben Shapiro won’t vote for Trump either. They mentioned a few other conservatives, but Glenn Beck is the only other name I remember.

      There’s a lot of conservatives who will abstain if Trump gets the nomination–including our host.

    ..and this proves it for me….they are just as corrupt as the democrats…and it doesn’t matter to them if they win or lose….as long as no one messes with their open borders and trade deals…their money machine….they actually prefer Hillary to someone that cuts off their money, Trump

    • DirkH says:

      Well they’re in a pickle. Trump might destroy their business model, but open treason destroys their vehicle, the GOP. Trump rightly points out that his GOP pledge works 2 ways. It’s a contract. Maybe he’d even sue them.

      So I’d expect a deal to be made, given Trump’s business acumen. Some scraps and face-saving for the GOP establishment.

      • Dirk, you’ve probably listened to Hitler. I understand his speeches were mesmerizing in German. You also understand English better than most. Does Trump sound like Hitler? I’m talking voice inflections here and not policies. Of course it’s hard, since Trump really hasn’t given many speeches and usually only tweets–dictator quotes–something Hitler never had access to.


        • DirkH says:

          Hitler had a perfectly normal voice – there’s a conversation of him with Mannerheim, the Finnish general (the fins were members of the Axis yet somehow nobody blames them).
          Secretly recorded by a technician.

          Only when Hitler adressed crowds he shouted like we all know – he was a trained speaker capable of addressing audiences of thousands of people without a PA – that’s how he campaigned; using a plane to have three events a day.

          So, the reasons for Hitlers extreme voice are entirely technical; and a comparison with other speakers meaningless – in the conversation with Mannerheim he matter-of-factly discusses the Russian tank building capacities like any military guy would.

          I won’t link to the video here but maybe you can find it using the terms Hitler’s normal voice, Mannerheim on youtube. Also, youtube blocks the video for Germans, and frequently deletes the accounts of those who post it.

          Somebody has a keen interest in hiding this fact it seems.

        • DirkH says:

          Another thing, all the microphones used in the halls in those days are carbon microphones with less than optimal linearity so the big amplitude differences lead to distortions. Giving Hitler’s speeches that special square wave flair we all know from samples of him.

          Jim, are you not getting american TV of something??
          …Trump goes on for hours…he’s getting a reputation for not shutting up

        • DirkH says:

          Or maybe they cut off the signal due to limited dynamic range of the recording medium. Which was probably a wire that would be magnetized in the days before plastic tape. Probably they didn’t have audio compressors. Early days for good live recordings.

        • Thanks Dirk. You’re very interesting, as usual.

          Jim, are you not getting american TV of something??

          It may be just me Lat. I live in the People’s Republic of Washington State, so I don’t get many Trump speeches on local TV, I don’t go to Trump rallies, and I haven’t heard many Trump speeches on national TV. I do get snippets at times. I also wasn’t expecting Dirk to be familiar with Trump speeches, but I was ready to be amazed.

          he’s getting a reputation for not shutting up

          Kinda like Cruz and the President.


        • Latitude says:

          His rallys to on for hours…and they are all live on UTube
          I had to stop on the last one….Meridian, Alabama…..and go make dinner it went on so long
          And no, he does not sound like Hitler.

          Here’s the bottom line…..this whole campaign has boiled down to just one thing
          …do you want open borders and illegal immigration?…..on not?

          Democrats will not do it….and neither will the republicans

          Republicans are not attacking Rubio or Cruz….because they know neither Cruz or Rubio will not do it.

          They are full out attacking Trump because they know he will do it. That is the one thing Trump has been consistent on…..Sessions knows it, and that’s why he endorsed Trump

          bottom line…end of story….game over

        • It now looks like Trump will lose all fifty states in the General. Add to that the effect on all Republican races, we could see a complete blow out for the Democrats–one party rule. The trouble with anger is that it doesn’t lead to good decisions. I don’t think the Republican party will survive after this election–exactly what the Democrats wanted. I still think Trump is a Democrat plant.

          bottom line…end of story….game over

          That’s what I’m seeing for our republic.

          Jim, one of my early hobbies was building audio devices, analog synth circuits before I got my hands on computers. So I know what sounds how.

          And some time in the 90ies I was at a concert of a neo-medieval band in an audience of 1000, packed room, without a PA; ex DDR musicians – they had this medieval music scene in the DDR because they were able to play anywhere in the absence of reliable tech, and pose as court jesters getting away with a lot of anti authoritarian jokes.

          Corvus Corax they’re called. THey built their own HUGE bagpipes (they had one two-person bagpipe, and bass bagpipes). And they had taught themselves to talk and sing VERY LOUD. In German. Now add a little fuzz and you’re right there.

          Jim where are you seeing that poll?
          I hope it’s not from RealClear…look who they polled.

          Who’s going to show up for Hillary? she can’t even pack a closet
          Republicans are showing up in record numbers…and Trump is having to turn people away

        • >>

          Okay, good to know. I should motivate myself and go listen to him. As I said, I’m not a Trump fan; I don’t believe him when he says whatever it is that he’s saying at the moment; and I don’t think he’ll be President. But I’m ready to be amazed.


        • Latitude says:

          I didn’t fully believe him either…none of them at first

          What convinced me 100% was when the republicans started a full out war…
          …the republicans believe he will do it
          The republican party thinks he is the biggest threat to their money machine.

          And right now I’m so pissed at the republican party for lying to us all these years..
          …they have never had any intention of closing the border or stopping illegals
          It’s all been one big lie from them all.

        • >>
          Jim where are you seeing that poll?

          I heard it today on Michael Medved. Admittedly, he’s not great in predicting elections, but he’s good with numbers.

          Republicans are showing up in record numbers.

          You do realize that almost two-thirds of Republicans don’t like Trump. Well, maybe it’s three-fifths now. I was expecting Bush’s supporters to break for Rubio or Cruz–that didn’t happen. This election is very strange, and the usual pundits are getting it wrong. But Trump has to win the General to get anything done. He also needs to get other Republicans elected. If he does win, I don’t expect his coattails to be very wide. And he’s not a conservative.

          Maybe when he releases his tax returns, that will be the end of him. (Speaking of tax returns, I have to do mine–ugh.)


        • Latitude says:

          ok, that explains it
          He’s quoting the RealClear poll.
          They polled CNN, ABC, NBC, USA Today, etc etc
          All of them liberal news…except one….FOX
          When you poll liberal news and ask…
          “if you voted republican, who would you vote for?”
          …you’re going to get the most liberal republican

          Here it is..go down and look who they polled

        • Latitude says:

          And he’s not a conservative.
          You know…I find that the height of irony

          It’s the republican party that have been trashing the TEA Party, saying this evangelical crap is causing them to lose elections, Calling them extreme right wing, the whole reach across the aisle, compromise…
          …we need a moderate conservative….blah blah blah

        • Okay, Lat. We shall see what happens next. Super Tuesday is tomorrow.

          Rubio is losing Florida–not a good sign. Kasich is losing Ohio–also not a good sign. Cruz is the only one of the three who’s winning his home state.


        • Latitude says:

          and when you factor in who’s actually showing up to vote….republicans in record numbers
          …and Trump keeps gaining

          “choice for nominee”

        • I’ve voted in every Presidential election since Nixon’s second win–1972. This MAY be the first time I don’t vote for the Republican.


        • Latitude says:

          I’m not either…..I am flat out not voting for a republican

          Those lying SOB’s have been lying to me for too long….same dog different collar

          (that said….I will hold my nose and vote against Hillary though)

    • Lars P. says:

      As The FT reports, many mainstream Republicans believe Mr Trump would struggle to beat Hillary Clinton
      and then:
      some senior Republicans saying privately that they might consider voting for Mrs Clinton if Mr Trump were to end up as their party nominee
      Which shows very clearly that their problem is not if he can beat Clinton. Why would they vote for her if they are so afraid of her winning? ROFL
