Why would politicians want to change a system that’s totally rigged in order to keep them in power? That’s what they’re doing, folks. Why would politicians want to change a system that’s made them and their friends very, very wealthy? I beat a rigged system, by winning with overwhelming support. The only way you could have done it. Landslides all over the country, with every demographic on track to win 37 primary caucus victories in a field that began with 17 very talented people.
After years of disappointment, there’s one thing we all have learned. We can’t fix the rigged system by relying on — and I mean this so, so strongly — the very people who rigged it. And they rigged it. And do not ever think anything differently. We can’t solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems.
Donald J. Trump
(MB) A National Review By, For and Of the Few
William F. Buckley, the Founder of National Review, once said, “I would rather be governed by the first 2000 people in the Manhattan phone book than the entire faculty of Harvard.” The American people continue to uprise against the elitist deal makers in Washington DC–many Harvard alums who have given us $19 trillion dollars in debt, with no end to the spending in sight. As the American people continue to see large chunks of their hard-earned checks being taken by the government, they are also seeing large portions of their checks being taken by rising costs associated with big government. Although Obamacare promised to reduce premiums, healthcare premiums are up 20%-60% and are expected to have another double-digit spike in 2017. Soaring property taxes “for the children” are instead used to offset unfunded pension liabilities. In Nashville TN, a 50% spike in immigrant students has resulted in 120 different languages being spoken in the Metro school district. So far, a $38 million budget has been proposed and approved to solve this issue, but the legislators admit that have “no clue” how they are going to pay for it. Their constituents have a clue!
The middle class continues to shrink in an economy that barely produced 1 job for every 8000 people, and yet the growing entitlement class continues to demand more free stuff while some are paid to assault and intimidate the very people who are forced to fund a rigged system. New generational thieves of illegal and legal Democrat voters refuse to assimilate or simply refuse to face the economic and security consequences of a centralized, powerful government and a broken immigration system–a system rigged and run by progressives in both parties.
However, many Americans, like our country, are broke. Most Americans are outraged. If these Americans had an objective press, one who would report the facts, instead of conspiring with or against the leading presidential candidates, Americans would then be armed with the truth to make an informed decision. If conservative American voters weren’t betrayed by those who hide behind the image of Reagan but support the policies of Barack Obama; if these conservative americans weren’t disparaged, insulted and ridiculed by the likes of many in the GOP and the #NeverTrump movement, maybe Trump wouldn’t be in the lead. But then again, neither would Jeb!, or Mitt, or Bill Kristol’s last desperate pick to “save the world and conservatism,” David French.
I highly doubt that Bill is in the Manhattan phonebook, unlike Donald Trump, but then again, Bill has some powerful friends.
The Purge Begins
Paul Ryan, the tone-deaf leader of the GOP, decided that Omnibus was more important than the promises made to the GOP base. In a brazen display of either arrogance, stupidity, or sabotage, Speaker Ryan doubled down on his betrayal and held an actual press conference to publicly charge the presumptive Republican nominee (who questioned a judge’s objectivity) with textbook racism and dutifully provided talking points to the White House, Clinton and Sanders campaigns on the morning of Super Tuesday. The marginalized #NeverTrump movement seized and are now calling for a change of rules at the Republican convention—even though Trump decimated previous primary records by 1.4 million votes.
Oh, how I long for the days when a “wise Latina,” who was a member of the National Council of La Raza, was dutifully and rightfully scrutinized and questioned about her ability to be objective due to her affiliations, past statements and judicial decisions. The wise Latina who, on many occasions, proclaimed, “I wonder whether achieving that goal (of impartiality) is possible in all or even in most cases.”
The Council of La Raza arranged to have its voice included in congressional hearings by House and Senate leaders and garnered an extra $4 million in federal tax funds earmarked by an anonymous senator in 2007 while continuing to lobby for open borders, driver’s licenses for illegals, and amnesty leading to citizenship for all illegal immigrants in the country.
If we can no longer question a judges impartiality, or if only white judges can be scrutinized for objectivity, we should throw out the Code of Conduct for United States Judges, which safeguards the judiciary and public from political influence:
Because of the promises made and promises broken, political movements shaped this election. Those who are getting screwed, are rising. From the naive millennials and hard-core leftists who are lining up like lemmings in front of the socialist cliff of the Sanders campaign; or the working class, business class, millennials, and newly energized voters lining up to Make America Great Again and put America First, these disenfranchised voters are disrupting and exposing the charlatans in and of the Beltway. Eric Cantor was the first to be fired. Renee Elmers, who relied on the Tea Party for her rise to power, was just removed by those very same people because of her betrayal on immigration, NOT her endorsement of Donald Trump. Is Paul Ryan, next? Hopefully so.
Trump’s supposed latest gaffe, according to the Beltway Boys and the sycophants in the MSM, was his use of a teleprompter in his press conference after Super Tuesday. Hillary Clinton has yet to hold a single press conference this year. As a result, the American people may not have heard of yet another FBI secret filing or the damning IG report, because the press, given 8 minutes of her time while campaigning in Compton, CA, asked her to comment on her crying supporters. Donald Trump promises to ask her the questions the press refuses to ask; challenge her in ways which the Beltway Boys and the #NeverTrump “movement” refuses to do. Yet, as this country has done before, the people will be the ones who paint this country Red. Hard working Americans putting America and American’s first. What a concept.
(KG) Beltway Boys for Hillary
Far too many of the political professionals who’ve been paid over the years for running campaigns and consulting have run the gamut within the Republican Party structure: Rockefeller to Reagan – although they’ll all tell you they are Reagan Republicans.
The bitterness among the #NeverTrump crowd following the suspension of Sen. Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s presidential campaigns hit epic levels. #Trumpacolypse is now in full swing.
What they are really mad about is that Trump is not one of them… he didn’t hire one of them… he rebuffed them and ran his own campaign. And won.
Recently we explained that self-aggrandizement is the business of many of the Washington DC Republican political insiders and consultants all across the country. They believe in promoting themselves, and long ago disregarded Reagan Republican values.
‘It’s just business,’ they say.
They’ve had Republican candidates wrapped around their fingers so long, even when the candidate loses, the beltway wins, and it’s business as usual.
But these beltway conservative types want to turn the presidency over to Hillary Clinton to “save conservatism.”
Liar, Liar, Pantsuit on Fire
How Reaganesque is it supporting Hillary instead of the presumptive Republican nominee? And have these beltway conservative types forgotten who Hillary Clinton is… Travelgate, Filegate, Hillarycare, her scandal-laden choices of Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, and finally Janet Reno for a female attorney general, her choice of Lani Guanier for the head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, or Hillary in charge of Bill’s “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense, Whitewater, Hillary’s First Lady’s Christmas Tree decorated with drug paraphernalia, sex toys, and pornographic ornaments, or Hillary’s theft of $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork What about Hillary’s destruction of incriminating emails after willfully violating America’s Espionage Act while Secretary of State Hillary, and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation, this pantsuit-wearing Liar of Benghazi. Hillary Clinton even says that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism.
To Hillary’s loyal fans, “what difference, at this point, does it make?”
Sacramento Political Consultant Doug Elmets worked in the Reagan White House and is ostensibly a Republican. However, Elmets is organizing “Republicans for Clinton.” Apparently it doesn’t make one bit of difference to him or the other Republicans who say they will vote for Hillary – Ben Howe from Redstate, Mike Treiser, a former staffer on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, Mark Salter, a former strategist for John McCain… I rest my case.
Beltway conservatives call Trump a “New York liberal.” Meanwhile, Hillary, Bernie, Obama, the lefties, and the news media are portraying Trump as a right-wing extremist. He can’t be both.
It’s truly shocking how frightened so many are of American democracy in action. The will of the common man is dismissed and he is sneered at as an ignorant idiot.
Or is the position of the beltway insider that as long as you’re making money, all is well in the world?
This #Trumpacolypse is not really about Trump winning: It’s about maintaining the DC agenda, and the ever-expanding federal government in this one-world order. Hillary represents what the beltway insider Republican establishment wants, and is why they would rather vote for Hillary than for Trump.
They are globalists pushing their global agenda.
Someone recently left the following comment on one of my articles — he hit it out of the park:
“For all those who say Donald J. Trump is not a ‘Conservative’ is …
Securing our borders is not conservative?
Tightening visa controls is not conservative?
Ending sanctuary cities is not conservative?
Keeping out refugees who may be infiltrated by jihadists willing to poison a major city’s water supply is not conservative?
Wanting to deport illegal immigrants who commit felonies is not conservative?
Wanting to eliminate the Department of Education and return control to the states and communities is not conservative?
Wanting to support law enforcement officers is not conservative?
Wanting Europe, Japan, and South Korea to pay more for the defense we provide them is not conservative?
Wanting Europe to pay their fair share for NATO is not conservative?
Wanting the United Nations to not be the Anti-Israel Nations is not conservative?
Wanting to reduce the U.S. share of funding for the United Nations is not conservative? Wanting to move the U.S embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, is not conservative?
Wanting to cut corporate taxes and regulations to keep businesses and jobs in the United States is not conservative?
Wanting to cut taxes on middle-class families is not conservative?
Wanting to slash or eliminate the estate tax to save family farms and businesses is not conservative?
Wanting to eliminate ObamaCare is not conservative?
Wanting to allow the sale of health insurance across state lines is not conservative?
Wanting to improve health care for returning veterans is not conservative?
Wanting a tougher stance on foreign trade to help American workers is not conservative?
Wanting to avoid “nation-building” and wars when the United States is not being threatened is not conservative?
By the way, the aforementioned is way more conservative than anything I remember George W, McCain, or precious Mitt ever doing or proposing and did you #NeverTrump people vote for either of those tres amigos?”
The progressives are at war on America’s Judeo-Christian principles, substituting these with devastating political correctness.
To choose the wrong side is unscrupulous. A recent Pew poll even shows that Trump supporters are the true conservatives of the Republican Party. “Republicans for Hillary” is either a stunt, or there are many disloyal Republicans. How can they substantiate their actions or defend their motives?
There is a war over the future of the American economy – Capitalism or Socialism? What side do you stand on?
