Trump makes this an idea election

The political experts say that this election is about the lesser of two evils, that both candidates are so hated, and that this is bad for America.

Remember, these are the same experts who said a year ago Trump had no chance of winning the nomination. And once again they are wrong, and for the same reason because they still are not listening.

They missed this huge election because they sat around mocking Trump's hair, language ("did he just say 'yuge'?") and celebrity. Had these self-described experts heard a word he said, they would not look so foolish today.

This election is about substance, not style. If it were about style, Trump would have never lasted past July last year. His opponents raised $700 million. He raised $17 million. On top of that he weathered the worst, most nasty and hostile press any candidate has had since Richard Nixon.

Trump not only survived but he thrived because he the right message: Make America Great Again.

Most Americans long for American greatness. The post-Reagan New World Order has America sacrificing its factories to free trade, its borders to ingrates, and its military leadership to a puny army run by Putin.

For this we are called racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, moronic, and now that Hillary is the Democratic nominee, misogynist.

Guess what?

We don't care.

Trump said something about Judge Curiel's ancestry?

Too damned bad.

The same people who gleefully call him Drumpf now dare to complain about "racism."

But the others side of the argument has no argument. From an American point of view there is no benefit for the country behind open borders and unbridled free trade. The results are indefensible. And yet the stuck-ups at National Review mock rural communities for having problems adjusting to the loss of the factory or mine in that town.

They live in a town whose company is government.

I can hear the howling if the FBI Fingerprinting Center were moved from DC and re-located to West Virginia. In fact I did when Byrd moved it there in 1991.

The dirty little secret is many DC conservatives live off tax-deductible donations.

Imagine if the sugar daddies stopped writing the checks that keep the magazine afloat, as well as pay the think tanks that employ so many National Review writers. They are stuck with their ahistorical New World Order in which the European Union runs England, and the United Nations eventually runs the rest of the world.

The question this election is simple: Do we want to continue down this path away from greatness or not?

Most of the press hates the answer to that question from most Americans.

  1. During one of the first debates, Oompa Loopa Trump said his top three priorities as president would be: Build a wall (we got that Donald, move on); Clean up the VA; and repeal Obamacare. So whatever happened to the latter two OLT?
    Trump is going to make our military strong again, even though he wants to pull out of NATO and withdraw troops from many hot spots (is that before or after we "bomb the s--- out of ISIS and kill their families too?).
    Surber touts the billions of dollars in free press Trump has earned ... but it was all mean, so mean.
    Trump is going to make America great again even though Surber said back in a 2015 post that America is still great.
    Face it, Trump has about as many ideas -with any degree of credible details - to make America great again as Hillary.

    1. Look, dooshbag, show your face. Or you will be consigned to the ash heap of history. Which is where you probably belong anyways.

    2. And "zregime" is your real name? Thanks for proving me right with your insult (which aren't very clever).

    3. Trump could make America great by passing legislation allowing the "press" to be sued for liable without having to prove malicious intent. A nicely packed Supreme Court would help with that job. He has taken on the enslaving effects of PC so I would hope he would follow up with a revision of the 14th amendment to help free us from the PC industry in general.

    4. Pass legislation to sue the press? Like I have said many time already, the principals and ideals that were the foundation of this country and made America great will never be more compromised more than any other time in history under the next president. And complicit citizens like you will be the reason why, whether your blind loyalty is to the Dump or the Crook.

    5. what is left of the press mentioned in the first amendment still exists on this blog in the fine and careful persona of its creator. The press you are referring to is really about four or five men who control large corporations in the entertainment industry and who see competitive advantage in a woman they know will be easily bribed to do their bidding. They are in short monopolists of the sort the country would best be rid of, pardon the preposition. They could stand some suing. Trump is their enemy because he threatens that monopoly and the vast riches that flow from it. He is feared and hated for that reason alone. There is no other, no matter their eye bleeding protests to virtue. You have come here and been heard, but if you went to one of them with some contrary opinion, you would not receive even a teaspoon of warm spit. The country you say you admire is now like the back of an old elegant rug, colors but no definition. I hope Trump can reconstruct it back to its great and vivid glory, even if you get to walk on it.

    6. Professional news media should not be regulated by the government any more than a blogger should be regulated. They should have the same right to write what they wish about politicians and public figures, whether it's in open editorials or in slanted articles they mislabel as "news." However, news media should receive no special legal protection that ordinary citizens lack against being sued for defamation, even by a public figure who is running for office. Public figures have a harder time suing for defamation, and that's understandable when it serves the public interest. A small bias towards the less powerful in society who take on the more powerful in the name of liberty makes some sense to me. But professional news media like the NYT or the Amazon Post are not "little guys." They can fight toe-to-toe with the powerful. The scales of justice should be neutral when it comes to issues involving the press. If a candidate for office feels he's been defamed by the news media and decides to sue, the press should have to defend itself like an ordinary defendant, without the favor of having the government put its thumb on the scales. If the press chooses to step into the boxing ring to fight, it should have to wear the same weight boxing gloves as everyone else and should not be allowed to get away with hitting below the belt and fouling without penalty.

    7. He has actually come out with a few details but you have been too busy bashing him or Surber to look them up. We know what Hillary will do. She will continue the failed policies of Obongo. BTW, the most important issue of this election is to stop the invasion of this country which is exactly what is happening. We are losing our country and if we don't wake up, we will become a failed republic. Oboner has showed just how easy it could be to become a dictator with a spineless opposition and a compliant press.

  2. Donald, do you have access to election result data? I'm curious if Trump's share of the June 7th primary voters went down compared to early voters (mail in ballots). If not, then the faux controversy over the judge from Las Raza couldn't have hurt Trump very much and was just a manufactured controversy.

    The NYT has a graphic that shows Trump's lead in conservative Southern California was Yuge! It just shows that the conservative intelligentsia is way out of step with the folks at home.

  4. It's not his ancestry, it's what Curiel wants to do with it. The fact he wants to wave it like a flag does.

    A La Raza judge has no business sitting on his case.

    1. What would happen if all the white, ethnically European judges got together and formed a professional group called The Association of White Judges? Would a black defendant feel comfortable being tried before a member of a League of White Judges, or would he be inclined to ask the judge to recuse himself? Would his request be understandable and even justifiable, or should we call him a racist? And what if a poor African-American defendant's public defender were a member of a professional group called White Lawyers of New York? Would he have grounds for asking for a different lawyer? Or should we label him a racist for asking?

  5. A la raza judge has no place sitting in a US court.

  6. Anon at 2:21: We don't see Hillary as wanting to make America great again.
    Anon at 2:55: "Thanks for proving me right with your insult (which aren't very clever)."
    That should be either "...insult(which isn't...", or "...insults (which aren't..."

    1. So I messed up my subject-verb agreement. Sue me, which you could under the most absurd proposal by another Anon poster.

  7. America once put a man on the moon. Now we have to buy rides from Russia to get our astronauts to the ISS. NASA's mission has changed to Mooslime outreach when it isn't valuing Diversity (All Hail Diversity!). I want to see America great again and Crookedcankles sure won't do that. She'll be too busy money grubbing and renting out the Lincoln Bedroom again.

  8. I hate to say this, but Nonnyass is right! We need to stay the course. The Uniparty strategy hasn't been tried and found wanting. It hasn't really been tried. David French for president! Who cares if he's not running. Write him in.
