“It’s Trump. Get Over It!”

It’s Trump.  Get Over it!

by Thomas Lifson   at American Thinker

“To the dismay of many serious conservatives, including many in our AT family, the Republican primary voters have spoken, and barring black swan events, Donald Trump will be the GOP nominee.  He is not a perfect man, but those Republicans contemplating a cup of hemlock instead of coffee this morning (as one well-known writer told me he was – jokingly, I hope – in the wake of Indiana) need to take a deep breath and contemplate Trump’s upside potential – for America, for conservatives, and for the Republican Party.

Let’s face it: America has been locked into a downward spiral under the permanent grip that a corrupt system has had on power.  Politicians bent on reform, representing voters demanding it, arrive in Washington, D.C. only to discover the impossibility of breaking the hold on the levers of governance of lobbyists, bureaucrats, and politicians in their pockets.  Washington, D.C. thrives, becoming the richest city in the country, as most of the rest of the nation stagnates and declines.  Businesses discover that it is far more important to cultivate government support than to innovate.  Rent-seeking becomes the path to riches.

Ted Cruz, who deserves enormous credit for suspending his campaign last night, swallowing his anger over Trump’s escalating personal attacks on him and his family, has demonstrated the futility of reforming the federal government from the inside.  A man of fierce intelligence and determination, he ran into a buzzsaw in the Senate and became the most hated man there in decades.  He stood up for principle but was unable to move Congress in his (and conservatives’) direction.

A strong majority of Americans across the ideological spectrum understand how broken the system is.  Something like two thirds of the electorate realize that the federal government is working to protect those who grease its wheels and feather its nest.  Nobody exemplifies this corrupt system better than Hillary Clinton, now the Democrats’ presumptive nominee (again, barring black swan events).

Trump’s chosen profession, building, is an apt metaphor for what needs to be done for the GOP and America.  Before you can build a new building on the urban sites Trump prefers, you have to tear down what was there before.  Some heavy-duty political demolition needs to be undertaken.  The Republican Party was locked into a downward spiral, with Democrats having re-engineered the voting population in their favor, importing millions of immigrants lacking the skills necessary to prosper in a 21st-century economy and therefore dependent on subsidies from a big government that would buy their fealty in return for the votes to keep big government’s handmaidens in power forever…..”  (Please read on)

Hillary Says She “Misspoke” When She Spoke about Killing the Coal Industry

Oh my, how our Donald will make news about Crooked Hill’s ability to “Misspeak” if he continues to do well in his campaign to battle against our nation’s Madame Defarge.  She does it so often….indeed, nearly every time this breed of human ugliness opens her amoral mouth.

Thank God this champ feminist  is a lefty.

Please do read the following article and listen to the Queen of Misspeak, our Hillary herself:

Clinton to Unemployed Coal Miner: Sorry You Were Upset When I Said We Will Put Coal Out Of Business

GOP Elite Michael Barone Bemoans GOP Should Have Cheated to be More Like Hillary

The only politico I have ever known personally was Rudy Perpich, Governor of Minnesota nearly 40 years ago.  A Democrat by label, Iron Ranger by birth, but a devoted  Minnesotan by action and heart.

What I know about others is from the communications world.   I was taught by my war time old maid school teachers that I had to amass knowledge in school for two vital reasons;  one….That accumulating knowledge would make me closer to God, for God was all knowing….and two….accumulating knowledge would help me become a better voter at the ballot box.

(I was lucky for their patience, for I was terribly dyslexic long  before the word was invented.  I loved accumulating knowledge visually, but couldn’t read a word for years except for newspapers, atlases and road map stuff.  I also was great at spelling.   My teachers kept nagging me about my reading problems by telling me my life’s future depended upon me accumulating knowledge.

Republican Michael Barone has been around the political scene for a very long time.  He seems a steady, honest, patient guy captivated by analyzing quite accurately what is going on politically from a mildly GOP point of view whether or not it favors  his party.    His dislike for our Donald has been steady but modest.   He worries most about HIS GOP.

I am not surprised he writes the following article envying the sleaze of Hillary and her Democrat Party for stashing away hundreds of  sly, behind the scenes political hacks, especially those with wads of money.

Nevertheless, Mr. Barone is always  good for an  honest read even those usually very lengthy.   He’s bemoaning the fact his GOP didn’t copy the  the  Hillary candidacy plan  for running with a two hundred delegate head start against all competition, gifted by the most leftist among the reliable of left wing Democrats.    Read on, please:

NATO’s Islamic Turkey Seizing Christian Churches Again

by Fran Fawcett Peterson   at  American Thinker:

“Father Joseph (Yusuf) Akbulut is one brave man.  He is a soft spoken, highly intelligent, Syrian Orthodox Priest I had the honor to meet in November 2013 at his parish, the 1700 year old Church of the Virgin Mary in the Sur district of Diyarbakir, Syria.  The Church, and the rectory in which Father Joseph, his wife and six children lived, were in the crossfire of the 10-month war between Kurdish fighters and the Turkish military.

In January they were in the Church with bombs exploding all around. A rocket-propelled grenade destroyed a portion of the wall surrounding the Church. Initially, Father Joseph refused to leave the Church he has overseen for 23 years, fearing it would be leveled if left empty. Unfortunately, he did have to leave – it became too dangerous. Now, the state has seized it along with all the other Christian Churches in Sur, including one of the largest Armenian Churches in the Middle East, Surp (Saint) Giragos……”   Please continue:

Tucker Carlson an Important Convert to Our Donald

Tucker Carlson last late summer was more than a grumpbler at Fox regarding the Trump interference into GOP national affairs.  “What right had he to……” well, you finish the sentence but be sure to include  the word “Republican”.

I found him a party hack.   Party hacks are needed in politics….whether in the press OR the party.   These are the steady people who practically never change their core.   Hillary is a perfect example of the leftist brand…..although many, the more intelligent folks into the American scene, don’t believe she has a core beyond Hillary making money and pushing people and the country around to fit her needs.  And then there’s that piercing God-awful noise called a voice she shrews whenever she opens her mouth to tell her tales.

Mr. Tucker, it turned out, made serious attempts to find out why our Donald, with all of his peculiarities, was resonating with the folks.  Our Donald is so winsome, especially  when he talks Donaldese.   And he’s bright…..and has a number of conservative corpuscles in his mind and body as starters, to make him a Republican.

The Donald has actually built something….done something requiring talent, skill, guts, disappointment and loss, success and gain if things work out right.   The Donald has made all of his opponents appear ‘unqualified’ as competitors.

The Donald, most of all, has a feel, at least the verbal ‘feel’ for the nation’s middle class and lower class pain, struggle and disorder…..

Please read the following article by Tucker Carlson, the brightest of the bright at Fox:
