Members of the mainstream media are coming down on Donald Trump like
the German Luftwaffe came down on London. Ruthlessly biased, they are obsessed
with sabotaging this maverick businessman-turned-politician in hopes of electing
their statist champion, Hillary, to the presidency.
The American people, however, are not overly eager to buy MSM's
leftist bias. The majority of them still believe in free enterprise and limited
government. Unfortunately The Donald is not exactly a "free-enterpriser" or a
"limited government" advocate. But then no one else out there is either.
Thus the choice is clear for patriots. If we wish to keep Hillary -
who will destroy what last semblance of freedom we have left - out of the White
House, we must support Trump. Despite his flaws, he will vehemently challenge
the establishment and restore freedom and growth to the wreckage Bill Clinton,
the Bushes, and Barack Obama have cursed us with over the past 28 years.
None of our problems, however, are going to be truly solved by a "new
political administration." America crossed the Rubicon of political sanity long
ago, and is now going to crash horrendously because of the fallacies of
Keynesianism and social welfarism, either slowly over the next two decades, or
suddenly in a gigantic collapse of banking that takes only a couple of years to
All Trump can do is buy some time by restoring productivity to
the economy, along with sanity to immigration, trade and foreign policy, which
would give us a chance to educate some of the powerful intelligentsia prior to
the inevitable economic crash that is coming. Then after the crash when we are
climbing out, perhaps we can guide America back toward the Founders' ideal,
rather than toward the globalist vision of today's collectivist establishment.
So there is no alternative to Trump if we wish to have any chance of directing
the country back to freedom after the coming collapse of the economy and
everything tied to it.
Jack Nicholson is smiling brightly these days, for his comrades from
the Cuckoo's Nest have taken over MSM. The members of today's media have gone
truly, irreparably insane, in full panic fearing that Donald Trump might
actually win. Thus they are willing to sacrifice all integrity and patriotism to
serve the super state headquartered in Washington and Wall Street. Their panic
is like what one encounters when he shines a flashlight on a dumpster while it's
still dark and confronts rats scurrying in all directions.
But these leftist rats and cuckoos are reluctant to attack Trump on
the critical issues (such as the sputtering economy, immigration, trade,
imperialism, etc.) because they can't. The people support Trump on such issues.
So MSM resorts to egregious smears and distortions of Trump's temperment and
For example, Trump was not advocating
assassination in a recent speech. Anyone who is intelligent realizes that. Yet
MSM hopped all over his Second Amendment terminology to try and intimate that he
Trump is simply not refined with political-speak. He hasn't played in
the game of politics for his life's work like the Bushes, Obamas and Clintons.
Thus he occasionally lets fly with awkward phrasings and stupid statements in
the emotion of a rally. But he's an advocate of assassination like Pope Francis
is an advocate of fornication.
Likewise, was Trump actually saying that Obama and Clinton were the
"personal" founders of ICIS? Of course not. He was saying that their naivety
about Islam, their appeasement of it, and their premature abandonment of Iraq
created the rise of ICIS. In his mind, this made them the "founders" of ICIS,
but certainly not the "personal" or "physical" founders. Again awkward phrasing
and a stupid statement. Obviously more clarity could have been used. But surely
members of MSM knew what Trump meant. They simply chose to distort it and smear
him with the ambiguity of the phrasing by conveying that he meant Obama and
Hillary were "personal" founders. MSM has to do this because Hillary offers them
no rational campaign to support; thus they must smear Trump's missteps and hope
this will carry the day for their cause of mega-statism.
this Smearing Be Circumvented?
The major strength we have is that Hillary is as corrupt as the
sleaziest of banana republic dictators and is a pathological liar. Even when the
truth would serve nicely, she is compelled to lie. Moreover her economics will
destroy America and drive us deeper into the permanent recessionary malaise we
suffer from now. Trump's economics will rejuvenate America. If the people can
distinguish between the productivity-increasing free-market jobs of Trump's
economic vision and the productivity-stifling bureaucratic jobs of Hillary's
economic vision, then Trump will win. He proposes to reduce business taxes to
15%; Hillary wants to raise them to 50%.
The two visions couldn't be
more starkly opposed. Hillary will plunge America into European socialism and
all its tyrannical misery. This is the iron law of ideology. Once it takes over
one's mind (and socialism took over Hillary in her early twenties), there is no
escape from its hold over you even when it shows itself as catastrophic and
nefarious. Hillary is a mindless tool of the socialist ideology, and she will
employ it to destroy America if the people are stupid enough to vote her
How will Trump overcome this? Hammer home his vision on 1) restoring
jobs and economic growth via lower taxes and regulations, 2) closing our open
borders, 3) cutting better trade deals, 4) ending imperialistic foreign policy,
and 5) appointing conservative judges to the Supreme Court. Point out the
profound specifics where his vision differs dramatically from Hillary's on these
five points. Shame the quisling RINOs with the fact that if they support
Hillary, they will be dooming America to destruction. They know this; they just
have to be reminded of it repeatedly between now and November.
will also continue to call attention to the criminality of Hillary, then this is
all he needs to do to win. Emphasize the above five policy proposals and remind
the people repeatedly that they will be putting a Bernie Madoff / Leona Helmsley
clone into the White House by voting for Hillary. If he sticks to this format,
he will overpower her. She stands directly opposed to the above five policy
proposals, yet a definite majority of the people have indicated that they
Many voters are unsophisticated when it comes to politics, but
most of them do understand the basics of political taxation and regulation and
its stultification of jobs and economic growth. They also understand the basics
of political corruptions such as "pay for play," which the Clinton Foundation is
waist deep in.
Why the Polls Are Not Valid
Hillary's present lead in the polls is not valid. Here's why. I
believe that most RINOs want the statist establishment to see them as
anti-Trump. This will keep them in good standing with the establishment's power
elites and point of view. So they proclaim from the rooftops how they dislike
The Donald and now support Hillary. This is what all good "herd mentalities" do.
But when Election Day arrives most of them will not, in good conscience, be able
to consummate their proclamations with action. In the privacy of the voting
booth, they will "do the right thing," and vote against the destruction of
America. Most of them will pull the lever for Trump even though they publicly
denounced him because their denunciations were only for show so as to curry
popularity with the establishment's elites.
Many blue-collar Democrats
will cross over and pull the lever for Trump, even though most of them are
presently telling the pollsters that they support Hillary because that's what
good Democrats do. But when the time comes to act in the privacy of the voting
booth, they will "do the right thing." They will pull the lever for Trump
because they know down deep that Hillary is just an extension of Obama and would
further destroy America. This is why all the polls are such garbage. They paint
a false picture of what is really banging around in the voters' heads, and which
will manifest only on Election Day.
The only hitch in the above scenario
unfolding is Trump. Can he get on message and stay on it, refraining from all
the flamboyant statements that get him in hot water with the MSM? If he can do
this, then MSM will have no kerosene to build their destructive fires with, and
the overwhelming logic of Trump's Reaganesque economic plan will dominate the
minds of blue-collar Democrats, independents, and RINOs on Election Day. This
will compel them to "do the right thing." A 4-point deficit in the pre-election
polls will turn into a 4-point surplus on the day of
