Update: “Even many Ted Cruz supporters are seeing him for the reptile he is tonight.
Ted Cruz might have united the GOP more with his nasty speech than even with an endorsement.
An endorsement might have been an OK thing to do but most people would know it was not sincere and just politically expedient (like Marco Rubio). But the snake move, the disgusting reptilian speech by Lyin’ Ted has revealed to many of his supporter that Trump was right. Trump called him “lyin’ Ted” for a reason. Ted Cruz is a liar.”
There is now a visceral loathing of Lyin’ Ted Cruz. Trump tried to unite the party and therefore invited Lyin’ Ted Cruz to speak to the RNC. Then Ted Cruz proved he is a reptile, a snake, scumbag. The Art of the Deal. Trump gave Lyin’ Ted enough rope. Lyin’ Ted Cruz used that rope to hang himself.
Who’s more clueless? Ted Cruz, The Dimocrats, John Kasich, Big Media, or Hillary Clinton?
None of the above see what is happening at the Republican National Convention even as they write and talk about the Republican National Convention. Plagiarism? That’s penny ante. It’s wholesale theft and it’s the Dims, Hillary Clinton, and Big Media helping the Republican load up the trucks. The future? Ted Cruz and John Kasich can’t see how the future has been taken from them already. Let’s discuss all of this.
In October 2015 we wrote @RealDonaldTrump Walks Away With The Clinton Coalition. The wholesale theft is happening in prime time and none of the clueless see it. Some excerpts of what we wrote that October 2015 day:
The white working class should have been the bedrock of Hillary2016. The white working class support for Hillary Clinton in 2008 provided grand victories of 40 point margins when Hillary was most wounded. Now Hillary2016 has repeatedly abandoned those voters. [snip]
The bedrock of a winning coalition, the people Barack Obama dismissed in 2008 as “bitter” and clinging to their guns and Bibles, used to be the FDR coalition and the Clinton coalition. No longer. They are now part of the Trump Triumph. Hillary2016 has abandoned them so they have abandoned her.
The counter argument to Trump winning the white working class vote is that Trump won’t get the nomination. At every turn we hear of a new pawn up to the job of destroying Donald J. Trump. [snip]
Donald J. Trump is not a conservative the GOP establishment likes nor a liberal the Democratic Party likes. Donald Trump will destroy the Republican Party as we now know it because Barack Obama destroyed the Democratic Party as we once knew it. The GOP has long contained a struggle between it’s populist voters and the big money Chamber of Commerce types that want a low wage society. Donald Trump is against a low wage society and therefore against illegal immigration. The white working class understands this. Enough of the black working class and the Latino working class understands this too.
The white working class chased out of the Democratic Party by Obama’s Kook coalition had no where to go but to the Republican Party. Now the former Democrats join in solidarity with the long time populist Republicans – ergo TRUMP.
There’s a wholesale theft going on every night in Cleveland and all Big Media and the dummies talk about is “plagiarism”. They don’t see the obvious. Every time that magnificently beautiful Melania Trump gets negative or positive Big Media coverage comparing her in any way to Michelle Obama it is a boon for Trump2016. Why? Because the medium is the message! It’s teleVISION. You see that gorgeous exotic bird Melania Trump. Then you see what looks like a Moose in high heels.
In rap music it’s called “sampling” but in order to damage Trump2016 all Big Media and the dummy ally Dimocrats want to wail about is “plagiarism” – not realizing the beautiful bird wins over the high heeled moose. While the dummies caterwaul about “plagiarism” the wholesale theft of the working class voters and what used to be Democratic Party themes is being stolen by the truckload.
Some see the wholesale theft and watch with glee. Barack Obama destroyed the Democratic Party and its winning FDR/Kennedy/Clinton coalition therefore homeless Democrats have gone to Trump. The latest prime time laugh is how the Republicans, in full prime time Klieg lights have put in their platform a return of Glass Steagall:
Republican Platform Under Trump Backs Glass-Steagall’s Return
Republican National Convention delegates approved a platform Monday that calls for reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act and scaling back the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul, calling it the Democrats’ “legislative Godzilla.”
The Glass-Steagall measure puts presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump and his party in the company of unlikely allies such as Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist who ran against Democrat Hillary Clinton on a plan that included Glass-Steagall reinstatement, underscoring the blurring of political lines in the 2016 race. [snip]
Trump has been a vocal critic of trade deals such as the TPP and the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying they have cost U.S. jobs and should be renegotiated. His stance has pitted him against some party stalwarts and pro-business groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“We support reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 which prohibits commercial banks from engaging in high-risk investment,” said the platform released by the Republican National Committee.
Clinton, whose husband signed a repeal of the law in 1999, doesn’t advocate for its return.
“We believe that the Obama-Clinton years have passed legislation that has been favorable to the big banks, which is one of the reason why you see all of the Wall Street money going to her,” Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort told reporters prior to the platform’s approval.
“We are supporting the small banks and Main Street. We talk about legislation that affects, you know, some of the mistakes made in repealing Glass-Steagall and some of the mistakes made in imposing Dodd-Frank. The platform reflects those things,” Manafort said.
It’s a wholesale theft in prime time Klieg lights but all Big Media and Dimocrats want to do is give more publicity to that beautiful bird of happiness Melania Trump.
It’s wholesale theft in prime time Klieg lights with trucks lined up for miles as they load up on the stolen goods. Goldfinger never dreamed so big.
The wholesale theft goes on every night! Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign slogan was Putting People First. Tonight’s theme at the Donald J. Trump RNC is “Make America First Again. Last night the theme was “Make America Work Again which we noted was the old “JOBS, JOBS, JOBS” recycled for a new era and new leadership.
Tonight’s theme is a variant of Putting People First although Big Media and the rest of the clueless insist on slapping on nationalist paint to cover the appeal of the message to the working class. Even the first night’s Make America Safe Again was a retread of the old “security mom” argument designed to appeal to women.
The Donald J. Trump #RNCinCle convention is the greatest robbery of a grave site since Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon looted the tomb of King Tut.
Clueless Big Media, Hillary Clinton, the Obama Dimocrats, are not the only clueless clowns. After all Lyin’ Ted Cruz and John Kasich are still alive.
Last night a spectacular speech was given by Donald Trump, Jr. The speech by Trump Jr. was very well delivered and full of powerful messages. In that speech the Donald J. Trump movement became greater and long-lasting.
The speech by Trump Jr. was very effective as a boost to Donald J. Trump. But much more happened in that speech. The transcript of Donald Trump, Jr.’s speech to the RNC reveals the golden nuggets:
For the first time, parents no longer think that their kids will be as well off as we were. We’ve lost the confidence in our leaders and the faith in our institutions. [snip]
He didn’t hide out behind some desk in an executive suite. He spent his career with regular Americans. He hung out with the guys on construction sites, pouring sheet rock and pouring concrete and hanging sheet rock. He listened to them and he valued their opinions as much and often more than the guys from Harvard and Wharton locked away in offices, away from the real work.
He’s recognized the talent and the drive that all Americans have.
He’s promoted people based on their character, their street smarts, and their work ethic, not simply paper credentials.
To this day, many of the top executives in our company are individuals that started out in positions that were blue collar. But he saw something in them and he pushed them to succeed.
The true gift as a leader is that he sees the potential in people that they don’t even see in themselves – the potential that other executives would overlook because their resumes don’t include the names of fancy colleges and degrees.
I know he values those workers and those qualities in people, because those are the individuals he had my sibling and me work under when we started out.
That he would trust his own children’s formative years to these men and women says all you need to know about Donald Trump.
We didn’t learn from MBAs. We learned from people who had doctorates in common sense. Guys like Vinny Stellio [sp], who taught us how to drive heavy equipment, operate tractors and chainsaws, who worked his way through the ranks to become a trusted adviser of my father.
It’s why we’re the only children of billionaires as comfortable in a D10 Caterpillar as we are in our own cars.
My father knew that those were the guys and gals that would teach us the dignity of hard work from a very young age.
He knows that at the heart of the American dream is the idea that whoever we are, wherever we’re from, we can get ahead, where everyone can prosper together.
The other party also tells us they believe in the American dream. They say we should worry about economic inequality and immobility.
You know what? They’re right. But they don’t tell you that it was their policies that caused the problem and it was their policies that have no accountability.
They gave us the worst immigration system in the world, one that imports immobility, one that drives down employment and wages for Hispanic Americans, for African Americans, and for everyone. An immigration system that favors illegals over those trying to go through the process legally and, at times, even over law-abiding citizens.
It was Bernie Sanders himself who warned that a large tide of new workers keeps wages low and poverty high.
The other party gave us public schools that far too often fail our students, especially those who have no options. [snip]
They want to run everything top-down from Washington. They tell us they’re the experts and they know what’s best.
The other party gave us a regulatory state on steroids. [snip]
Imagine trying to digest all that before you even open your doors for business. That doesn’t help consumers. What it does is destroy small business in favor of big businesses who can afford the vast number of lawyers and accountants needed to comply. Dodd-Frank is consumer protection for billionaires.
We’ve produced the thickest network of patronage and influence of any country at any time in world history. It’s composed of a self-satisfied people at the top – our new aristocrats. We can’t live that way any longer, it’s too risky.
“Our new aristocrats!” That’s revolutionary stuff and delivered at the New Republican Party convention! Our excerpts are from only half of the speech delivered by Donald Trump, Jr. There’s plenty more.
Donald Trump, Jr.’s speech is a speech that long ago could have been delivered at a Democratic Party Convention to great applause if it was delivered by a rich Kennedy or a rich Roosevelt. Listen to the echoes of what once was the great Democratic Party in defense of the working class as delivered by Donald Trump, Jr.:
We will not accept the current state of our country because it’s too hard to change. That’s not the America I know.
We’re going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans.
We’re going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background.
We’re going to put Americans first. All Americans. Not a special class of crony elites at the top of the heap.
We’re going to elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again.
It’s an astonishing speech in defense of the working class and the American people.
The Donald Trump Jr. speech is very positive and with every positive it is an attack against the opposition party. But it is much more than that.
Clueless John Kasich, Ted Cruz, believe that if they can sink Donald J. Trump in 2016 they will be positioned for victory in 2020. That is delusional.
Jeb Bush thought he was destined to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016 because the primary schedule and every rule was designed to fix the election for Jeb’s victory. All the rules Jeb Bush set in place insured the nomination of Donald J. Trump. Jeb! only received 3 delegate votes from the convention which means Jeb! spend $50 million per delegate.
John Kasich and Ted Cruz think if they sabotage Trump2016 and fix the rules to their benefit somehow they will be the future. They are clueless.
The Republican National Convention has created a New Republican Party. Donald J. Trump is the future of the Republican Party no matter what happens in November. If Trump wins that is an obvious truth. But even if Trump would lose, Trumpism will rule the day at the New Republican Party.
The moment Donald Trump Jr. spoke it became clear there was one obvious heir to Donald J. Trump and many others lined up with the movement. Clueless Ted Cruz and Clueless John Kasich can’t see the future is now. Neither can the other clueless, their pockets picked, houses empty, as the future rolls forward by the truckload.
