Let’s face it – Donald Trump is a preposterous nominee and an easy mark for a thousand different caustic and clever jokes. He’s not a good Republican and he just isn’t a very good politician. Of course, let us not forget that this is exactly why Donald Trump was so successful during the Republican Primary. Ted Cruz, having served a few short years in the Senate was billed as a Washington Insider, the head of an alternative establishment, no less potent or entrenched than those belonging to the Boehner/McConnell coalition.
The Donald drives me crazy.
He says things that make me laugh, that makes me want to cry, to pull my hair out, to throw things at my laptop. He’s a hard man to pull for, if you are serious about government and politics.
Donald Trump has got more in common with progressive democrats than he does with conservative Republicans. He’s the furthest thing from a Libertarian and a Constitutionalist the Republican Party can find. Hence the rise of the Libertarian and Constitutional Party’s and a renewed interest in their utterly ridiculous candidates.
All that said, his opposition doesn’t really represent the Democrat Party, liberalism, or progressivism. Hillary Clinton is the Clinton Foundations’ candidate and it’s the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Foundations’ donors that she’ll represent. In all honesty, I’m not afraid of Donald Trump selling out America to the Ruskies, when Hillary Clinton helped sign off on a deal selling strategic uranium to Russia.
In his entire life, Donald Trump has never advocated for anything that stupid or dangerous.
Democrats and Republicans ought to understand that Hillary Clinton is not an American Candidate for President. Hillary Clinton represents every corporation, every cartel, and every foreign nation that has “donated” a dime to The Clinton Foundation.
From 2001 to 2015, the Clinton Foundation raised over $2 billion in donations. From February 2001 to May 2015, Bill Clinton gave 637 speeches and made $132,021,691 in speaking fees alone. Hillary gave 92 speeches from February 2013 to March 2015. She was paid $21,648,000. While the Clintons made speeches to Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, it was the foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation that were the most disturbing. –The American Spectator
I mean, if Democrats and Republicans are really that upset with “corporatism” and “globalism”, then Hillary Clinton is the worst candidate for President I can imagine. Hillary Clinton is the corporate matriarch of the Clinton Family – a mafia organization for rich white Europeans and Middle Eastern oil tycoons. Her entire time at the State Department was criminal, at best, and treasonous at worst, as she sold out American interests for donations to her family’s “charity”.
According to Peter Schweizer’s book, “Days after Hillary left Bogota, Prima Colombia Properties, which Frank Giustra has ownership interest in through a shell company called Flagship Industries, announced that it had acquired the right to cut timber in a biologically diverse forest on the pristine Colombian shoreline.” Giustra’s other company, Pacific Rubiales Energy, got the right to drill for oil on six Colombian fields shortly after Hillary left. – The American Spectator
If you have the slightest tendency toward The Green Party and the environmentalist movement, then Hillary Clinton is the last person you want to vote for. She’s a villain from a James Bond film.
Deciding between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump seems difficult, if you are simply judging the two candidates by virtue of their personalities alone. Yet, if you dig into their business practices, it becomes clear that Hillary Clinton really is an international Crime Lord and a traitor. This isn’t hyperbole or rhetoric. She really has been selling out The United States of America for cash.
In 2011, the Clinton Foundation lobbied the State Department to transfer funding away from AIDS programs to a training program for health professionals in Rwanda. This idea was approved over the explicit objections of some State Department officials. Although Secretary Clinton officially recused herself, she had her Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills decide the issue. The problem is that before Mills got her job in the State Department, she was a board member at the Clinton Foundation.
She actually remained on the Clinton Foundation board briefly as an unpaid member for a few months while working for State Department. For her first four months at the State Department, Cheryl Mills also worked for NYU and got paid $198,000 in 2009. She also received another $330,000 package in severance and vacation payments. – The American Spectator
Since the 1980s, AIDS has been a hot button issue for Democrats. Yet, while Republican ridicule Donald Trump for his curious idiosyncrasies, Hillary Clinton was undermining efforts in Africa to reduce AIDS and the Democrats haven’t taken their nominee to task.
The Democrat Party is anything if not an exercise in groupthink, mob action, and party discipline. Republicans don’t behave that way. When our nominee fails to represent our values, we freak out and announce to the world that we will not be supporting Donald Trump. We’ve got defunct and disgraced Republican candidates desperately trying to get the newspapers to pay attention to them, announcing that they will vote for Gary Johnson or Hillary Clinton. That this is even possible plays into all the narratives that got Republicans to vote for Trump in the first place.
We’ve got Virginia bloggers who are hedging their bets that Trump will lose – and so they spend all day, every day, attacking Trump, blogging and posting memes on Facebook, undermining Trump, because Trump doesn’t perfectly represent their values. He doesn’t represent our values.
Meanwhile, the Democrats remain silent as the most anti-gay, anti-environment, anti-AIDS funding candidate and friend of Wall Street, K Street, and the international lobby sells out the Democrat Party for a global agenda which neither serves, nor benefits, Democrat voters in the United States.
There are too many stories to tell about the corruption at the Clinton Foundation for just one article. The most unbelievable story was how the Clinton Foundation helped its donors profit from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, which killed approximately 200,000 Haitians. After the earthquake, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID set up the Haiti Mobile Phone Initiative. In January 2011, Digicel received the first award of $2.5 million so that Haitians could receive money over a mobile phone network. The Digicel Group is owned by Irish billionaire Denis O’Brien. By 2012, only two years after the earthquake, Digicel’s operation in Haiti made a profit of $86 million from $439 million in revenues in 2012.
It was no surprise to find out that O’Brien was a Clinton Foundation donor. O’Brien gave between $5 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In October 2010, two months before Digicel was awarded the money for helping Haiti, the company sponsored an event in Jamaica where Bill Clinton got paid $225,000 to give a speech. – The American Spectator
The Clinton’s don’t even care about the victims of natural disasters… or the poor.
In truth, Hillary Clinton isn’t a Democrat. She doesn’t represent liberals or Marxists or the folks brought into the Democrat Party by Bernie Sanders. She represents Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, and a dozen other countries that execute homosexuals, allow husbands to beat their wives, and allow people to own slaves.
This doesn’t matter, because the Democrats will support her regardless. Yet, we Republicans cannot support Donald Trump – a man, who, throughout his entire life hasn’t collected a record of wrongs egregious enough to equal but one of Hillary’s crimes against humanity and against the United States. Not to mention her crimes against the values of the Democrat Party.
All this ridiculous talk about us not having a moral reason to vote for Donald Trump…all these allusions to Trump as being an evil man…are ridiculous. Compared to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is an angel and anyone who cannot see this is simply angry for other reasons. I am not pleading to anyone to like Donald Trump. I sure as hell don’t. I’m just asking that we, for a moment, focus.
Look – I’m not going to defend Donald Trumps’ attitude or policies or speeches. Half the stuff he says makes me want to throw things. Let’s not, however, confuse a populist and a progressive Republican Candidate, with a woman who has sold out The United States, Africans with AIDS, poverty torn victims in South America, and her own political party.
Trump may not be a good Republican, but Republicans no longer seem to have faith in their party. They’ve voted. They’ve placed their faith in Donald Trump – and as crazy as that might sound, it’s not as crazy as electing Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States of America. Nothing could justify such reckless or cynical behavior.
