With just over a week until the first 2016 election contest, Donald Trump takes the lead in Iowa — and maintains his big advantage in New Hampshire.
That’s according to the latest round of Fox News state polls on the Republican presidential nomination contest.
Trump bests Ted Cruz in Iowa and now receives 34 percent support among Republican caucus-goers. Trump was at 23 percent in the Fox News Poll two weeks ago (January 4-7).
Cruz is down at 23%. Trump! Before Sarah Palin it was Trump at 23%. After Sarah Palin The Donald is at 34%. Trump’s relentless attacks against Cruz have succeeded. Trump’s numbers went up. Cruz’ numbers went down. Nationally and in Iowa and in New Hampshire.
Every phony “surge” candidate against Trump has been defeated. The big question now is who will be anointed by the GOP establishment to be the next “surge” candidate against Trump after Thursday’s debate. Maybe it will be Jeb the next “surge” candidate – after all he finally got his mother’s endorsement.
NRO won’t understand. It’s all over for Trump. In a good way. Nuke.
Forget guns. Every American has the right to carry a nuclear weapon. That nuclear weapon is called the vote.
On June 16, 2015 Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign. Unlike just about everybody else on the left and especially the right, we sang his praises that very day. We warned that Donald Trump should not be sold short, that Trump could become the nominee and that Trump could become president in January 2017.
By the first week of July it was clear that The Donald held several trump cards which he played adroitly, like early James Bond in the casino playing chemin de fer, cigarette dangling from his lips.
By the end of July, more and more, even the dunces began to see what we saw on Trump announcement day. Many still derided Trump and disagreed with us that Trump could win the nomination and the general election. But the desperation and fear could be smelled from the anti-Trump toilets. So strong was Trump we wrote up the near impossible task “How To Destroy Donald Trump“.
By the time we wrote How To Destroy Donald Trump we knew it was already too too late. We knew much earlier that the moment Donald Trump got on the first debate stage despite every GOP establishment attempt to block him from a platform next to governors and senators, it was over and Trump was on his way – in. Which brings us to why that is true and what the NRO and the anti-Trump right wing toilets need to know.
The attacks came too late. Donald Trump preempted all the attacks with Sarah Palin. But even if Trump had not tactically outmaneuvered the authors of the attacks, they were still too too late.
Here’s what the NRO needs to know. The attacks against Trump won’t work because Trump is not their problem. The problem is the damn American voter with that nuclear weapon ready, able, and willing, nay, joyously about to detonate.
NRO and the anti-Trump toilets should have read what we wrote back in early July, before the first debate, shortly after Donald Trump announced. We wrote about the Donald Trump mystique before the American people went nuclear on the political class:
We explain in simple English the Donald Trump mystique:
WHEN YOU ARE IN A SNAKE PIT YOU DON’T CARE WHO HANDS YOU A STICK. [snip]
Eventually voters catch on and they decide to vote for the biggest motherf*cker around who will do what they want. The voters find themselves in a snake pit, surrounded by vipers, and they reach up to grab whatever stick is handed to them. [snip]
The voters are in a snake pit and Donald Trump is the stick they will use to beat back the vipers.
You don’t have to like Donald Trump to love Donald Trump. You can detest Donald Trump as crass and love the fact that he fights back and has the resources to fight back.
Donald Trump is the stick that hits. And voters trapped in the snake pit need a stick.
Whatever Trump quote NRO trots out, or whatever anti-Trump story Weekly Standard regurgitates to question Trump’s credentials as a conservative or Republican or whatever don’t matter. The problem for NRO and their fellow travelers is not Trump. The problem for NRO and the political establishment is the nuclear armed voter.
The voters are about to nuke the political establishment.
In 2008, the P.U.M.A. movement was born. Party Unity My Ass.
What was P.U.M.A.? It was a country over party movement. This website remained true to what we wrote. Throughout 2007 and 2008 we wrote that treacherous Barack Obama should not be president. Ordinarily, as in every election we would have fallen in line and voted for the Democrat. But party over country guided us. We believe we have been proven right.
Many of those who stood with us during the primaries, that excoriated Barack Obama for his many corruptions, failings, treacheries, and dubious history, about-faced everything they thought, once the Political Party waved the red flag of battle. We stood athwart history yelling Stop!
Many establishment Republicans in 2008 put aside the obvious about Obama, admired the crease in his pants, and exhorted a vote for Obama. Many of those who lubricated history to elect Obama are now the ones against Trump. The political establishment that did nothing to stop Obama, that did everything to enable Obama, now wants to stand athwart history yelling “Stop Trump!” Fu*k You.
Back when we warned that the voters were trapped in a snake pit and would reach for any stick to beat back the vipers there was a chance for the vipers to learn and survive. There was a chance for the vipers to back off. There was a chance for the vipers to sheath their fangs. There was a chance for the vipers to provide space and hope the voters’ anger would be soothed. But the vipers bared their fangs.
The voters in the snake pit took the stick Donald J. Trump offered. The snakes coiled, ready to strike. The voters could have cooled their anger if only the vipers in the pit had learned and backed off, understood the anger, addressed the grievances, raised candidates with messages that understood the anger – if only to try to stop the retribution to come.
Now the stick is set aside. It is time for retribution. The stick is no longer enough. The ultimate weapon will be unleashed. The nuclear weapon will explode. In less than 10 days.
