Victor Davis Hanson: Why GOP Will Vote Trump

Why Republicans Will Vote For Trump

by Victor Davis Hanson    at Hoover Institute

“If Donald Trump manages to curb most of his more outrageous outbursts by November, most Republicans who would have preferred that he did not receive the nomination will probably hold their noses and vote for him.

How could that be when a profane Trump has boasted that he would limit Muslim immigration into the United States, talked cavalierly about torturing terrorist suspects and executing their relatives, promised to deport all eleven-million Mexican nationals who are residing illegally in the U.S., and threatened a trade war with China by slapping steep tariffs on their imports?

A number of reasons come to mind.

First, Trump stays in the news not just by taking extreme positions, but also by taking extreme positions on issues that are already extreme. When Mexico prints comic books advising its own citizens on how to enter the U.S. illegally, when the major illegal-alien lobbying group is called The National Council of La Raza (“The Race”), and when major U.S. cities, in Confederate-style, declare themselves “sanctuaries” in which U.S. federal immigration law does not apply, then we long ago entered zones of extremism……(Please continue.)

The Importance of Indicting that Hillary

James Comey:  Enforcing the Law Requires Indicting Hillary Clinton

by Scott S. Powell   at American Thinker

“When James Comey was appointed FBI Director by President Obama, he became the “hands on” chief law enforcement officer of the U.S. As he laid his hand on the Bible and recited his oath of office on September 4, 2013, swearing to “faithfully discharge the duties of the office… without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion,” Mr. Comey never thought he would face indicting the heir apparent leader of the party under which he would serve.

The facts known about Secretary Hillary Clinton’s actions surrounding the use of an unsecure private email server for conducting State Department business, show that she acted with reckless disregard of the security interests of the United States and violated some ten federal statutes. Several are national security-related felonies, just three of which include: 1) disclosure of classified information (22 of which documents were Top Secret); 2) unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents; and 3) destruction of evidence (erasure of the hard drive and deletion of some 30,000 emails by Secretary Clinton), after a government investigation had commenced (Benghazi hearings began October 10, 2012).

Mr. Comey can’t give Secretary Clinton a pass without trouble because a related, but lesser violation in handling classified material by General David Petraeus was recently adjudicated, resulting in a $100,000 fine  a two years’ probation. Petraeus merely gave his personal notebooks, which contained classified information to his biographer, who never disclosed any secrets. Hillary Clinton showed reckless disregard for the nation’s security; her email server — hosting voluminous classified and Top Secret information — was repeatedly breached and exposed by notorious Romanian hacker “Guccifer” and by the Russians (who have 20,000 Clinton server emails in their possession).

The fact that the administration under which Mr. Comey serves has conducted itself with unprecedented partisanship and lawlessness makes it even more important for him to uphold the law and proceed with indictment. The American people need to see that both lawlessness and dereliction of duty are not given a pass and that no one is exempt or above the law.

But the reasons for this step go deeper. Hillary Clinton has been an integral part of the Clinton Foundation, which is unprecedented in size and global scope as an influence peddling political slush fund. According to the foundation’s own recent tax returns, just 10% of expenditures go to charitable grants, with the bulk of the expenditure balance spent on salaries and benefits, lavish life-style travel and conference organizing. The record shows that the Clinton Foundation took large contributions from several business magnates who soon thereafter received clearance for controversial international business deals. Saudi Arabia contributed $10 million to the Clinton Foundation before Hillary became secretary of state. A few years later the Hillary Clinton State Department formally cleared the largest single sale of military aircraft to the Saudis.

The most plausible explanation for Hillary Clinton’s circumventing longstanding Federal government rules on secure communication and for her insistence on implementing a private email server, was simply to conceal a conflict of interest in continuing a role in the Clinton Foundation while also serving as secretary of state. It is instructive that Secretary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, was simultaneously on payrolls of both the State Department and the Teneo Group, a consulting operation founded by a Clinton confidant with influence peddling activities similar to the Clinton Foundation. Additionally, a private email server would protect disclosure of quid pro quos and fundraising activities for Hillary Clinton’s anticipated run for president.”   Please continue:

Mark Levin: HILLARY DIDN’T BREAK EMAIL RULES…SHE BROKE FEDERAL LAW

Article written by Larry O’Connor  at HotAir.com:

“Radio talk show host Mark Levin blew apart the media narrative that Hillary Clinton “broke email rules” at the State Department.

Wednesday’s release of the State Department’s Inspector General emphasized Clinton’s violation of internal email policies, but Levin went right to the core of the matter explaining that these “policies” are in place because of federal law:

“You’ve heard by now, Hillary Clinton violated email rules. What? There’s email rules? Thats how Politico headlined their breaking story. ‘State Dept watchdog: Clinton violated email rules.’ No. She didn’t violate email rules, she violated federal law. ‘The State Department Inspector General concluded that hc didn’t comply with the agency’s policy on records.’ Guilty. GUILTY!  She’s guilty of violating a federal law. It’s not just the State Department that comes up with these policies. These policies are put in place to undergird the federal records act.”……”  Please read on:

WILLFUL DISREGARD FOR THE RULES

Dennis Prager, Despite His Own Stench, Will Vote For Our Donald!

I have been a devoted radio  fan of Dennis Prager since October, 2004 when I first heard his voice describing the empty suited, presidential candidate of the Left,  John F. Kerry.

Dennis’ vocabulary exposing his vast knowledge describing this phony Democrat sans suit plus an emotion which came from both heart and body was worth some kind of a world championship medal.

No one I have ever known has so matched my thinking, political, social, religious, cultural than this Dennis Prager……..until the arrival of guess who???

Our Donald……

Not that I hadn’t thought ill of our Donald over the 30 or more years I have known the man via television and newsprint.   His culture, religion,  language,  and wealth were certainly not mine, yet  I only had read about him in papers and knew he performed occasionally on television.

I actually prefer the company of the fellow artist- laborers in our landscape garden company.    They are as talented in their outdoor field of art, construction,  and creativity  as Dennis and his talk-alikes  are in their  indoor field of political  cultural persuasion  and preachment….but I can’t imagine Dennis and associates could really understand  the meaning of my statement.   Nor would decent Jonah Goldberg, and the other conservatives on Dennis’ hate Trump list.  These are indoor preachers,  teams teeming  in today’s  indoor culture who  make their fortunes telling listeners how to live, think, and vote.

They claim to be the real conservative.   They have despised Mr. Trump, almost brain-dead since the man entered the  2016 presidential contest as a Republican.

Mr. Trump didn’t match Pragerpeople standards…… These snob superior GOP railed  over this flamboyant, in ones face business man, who as it turns out, likes to tell things as he actually sees and feels about them.   But, the elite shouted, “He’s not even a conservative”….and “He doesn’t even have a foreign policy”…..and worse, Mr. Trump mouthed in public  what he (and countless others) saw in Fiorina’s new  face….plastic rather than character.   How modern!

It turned out there was something terribly plastic about almost all of the 17 or so Republican candidates vying for the White House life.   Only our Donald was pricelessly different, actually unique.   I especially noticed that on the evening of August 6, when arrogant Fox gal,  Megyn Kelly,  introduced herself to our Donald attacking him to advance her own reputation as a feminist ‘tough’ quoting from comments made about some women he’s known in the past.

Dennis never interviewed our Donald on his radio show.      Never to shame his own self esteem, our Dennis,  now that Mr. Trump is the winning GOP candidate to face dame Hillary, although still   ‘despises’ our Donald, but despises him  less than he despises Mrs. Clinton’s leftist fascists he so correctly describes as tyrants coming to roost if Mr. Trump doesn’t win in November.

I do confess, I have come to love our Donald with all his faults Dennis snarls about, even more than the respect I have had all  these twelve years of knowing our Dennis.  My country’s future is in Mr. Trump’s mind and hands.  That does please me very much!

From that very August 6th evening when assaulted by feminist Kelly our Donald first answered “Only Rosie O’Donnell” referring to remarks about mouth-ugly  women,  I knew this guy was not  just another boring GOP automaton mouthing words with more words loser.   He was a business man, a builder not a political hack, a real guy American who reeked personality and seemed as profoundly pissed at what has become of the country’s business, beliefs,  and ignorance as I was.

I loved his language and tone……at last someone is poking holes into the leftist wall of political correctness.  I love his tempo,  humor, his personality.  He’s winsome!!

And he is NOT a hack politician, but a conservative business man who knows what he wants…..TO MAKE AMERICA  GREAT AGAIN!!  Where can I sign up!

Poor, lonely, misguided, isolated, indoorman, Dennis Prager…..hasn’t a clue, yet!

It might conversion painful, but he’ll get there when the real battle begins.

The following Prager confession is about the best Dennis  can do at present, to write something less nasty, less bigoted  than his daily assaults on our Donald almost to this very day.

Well, as the old saying goes:  “Halitosis is better than no breath at all!”

A Response to My Conservative #NeverTrump Friends

Dennis Prager

5/24/2016 12:01:00 AM – Dennis Prager

When you differ from people you admire, you have to question yourself. After all, what is the purpose of admiring people if they aren’t capable of influencing you?

So, I have had to challenge my position — stated since the outset of the Republican presidential debates — that if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, I will vote for him over Hillary Clinton, or any Democrat for that matter.

I devoted many hours of radio and many columns to criticizing Trump. His virtually assured nomination has therefore caused me grief as an American, a Republican and a conservative. That his character defects, gaps in knowledge on some important issues, and lack of identifiably conservative principles came to mean little to so many Republican voters is quite troubling. (Though, I might add, it is even more troubling that virtually all Democrats ignore the even worse character of Hillary Clinton, as well as the idiotic socialist ideas of Sen. Bernie Sanders.)

#NeverTrump conservatives, such as (in alphabetical order) Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, Bret Stephens and George Will are not merely people I admire — they are friends and colleagues. Goldberg, Stephens and Will have made multiple videos for Prager University, which receive millions of views. Shapiro and I have spent Shabbat together. I have had the privilege of writing for Kristol’s The Weekly Standard and having him on my show many times. And I have enthusiastically promoted their books. These individuals are special to me not only as thinkers, but as people.

However, in the final analysis, I do not find their arguments compelling.

Take the “conscience” argument that one can sleep with a clear conscience by not voting for Trump. I don’t find it compelling because it means that your conscience is clear after making it possible for Clinton or any other Democrat to win.

In fact, the “conscience” argument is so weak that Goldberg — to his credit — published a column two days ago titled “Sorry, I Still Won’t Ever Vote for Trump.” He wrote, “If the election were a perfect tie, and the vote fell to me and me alone, I’d probably vote for none other than Donald Trump.”

Shouldn’t all Americans vote as if their vote were the deciding vote? Including those whose votes “don’t count” because they live in states that are so left-wing they would still vote Democrat if Vladimir Lenin headed the Democratic ticket?

The choice this November is tragic. As it often happens in life, this choice is between bad and worse, not bad and good.

But America has made that choice before. When forced to choose between bad and worse, we supported Joseph Stalin against Adolf Hitler, and we supported right-wing authoritarians against Communist totalitarians.

It seems to me that the #NeverTrump conservatives want to remain morally pure. I understand that temptation. I am tempted, too. But if you wish to vanquish the bad, it is not possible — at least not on this side of the afterlife — to remain pure.

The most moving interview of my 33 years in radio was with Irene Opdyke, a Polish Catholic woman. Opdyke became the mistress of a married Nazi officer in order to save the lives of 12 Jews. She hid them in the cellar of the officer’s house in Warsaw. There were some Christians who called my show to say that Opdyke’s actions were wrong, that she had in fact sinned because she knowingly committed a mortal sin. In their view, she compromised Catholic/Christian doctrine.

In my view — and, I believe, the view of most Catholics and other Christians — she brought glory to her God and her faith. Why? Because (SET ITAL) circumstances almost always determine what is moral (END ITAL), even for religious people like myself who believe in moral absolutes. That’s why the act of dropping atom bombs on Japan was moral. The circumstances (ending a war that would otherwise continue taking millions of lives) made moral what under other circumstances would be immoral.

In the 2016 presidential race, I am not interested in moral purity. I am interested in defeating the left and its party, the Democratic Party. The notion (expressed by virtually every #NeverTrump advocate) that we can live with another four years of a Democratic president is, forgive me, mind-boggling. To that end, with at least one, and probably multiple, additional leftists on the Supreme Court, a Republican presidential victory in 2020 would mean little. All the left needs is the judicial branch, especially the Supreme Court. Left-wing judges pass so many left-wing laws that they render those who control Congress, and even the White House, almost irrelevant.

Here, then, are nine reasons (there are more) why a conservative should prefer a Trump presidency to a Democrat presidency:

–Prevent a left-wing Supreme Court.

–Increase the defense budget.

–Repeal, or at least modify, the Dodd-Frank act.

–Prevent Washington, D.C. from becoming a state and giving the Democrats another two permanent senators.

–Repeal Obamacare.

–Curtail illegal immigration, a goal that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with xenophobia or nativism (just look at Western Europe).

–Reduce job-killing regulations on large and small businesses.

–Lower the corporate income tax and bring back hundreds of billions of offshore dollars to the United States.

–Continue fracking, which the left, in its science-rejecting hysteria, opposes.

For these reasons, I, unlike my friends, could not live with my conscience if I voted to help the America-destroying left win the presidency in any way.

I just don’t understand how anyone who understands the threat the left and the Democrats pose on America will refuse to vote for the only person who can stop them.
