Why Trump

Daniel McCarthy is the editor of The American Conservative. Like me, he is a member of Scholars and Writers for America, a group that drew the ire of Ross Douthat, the token conservative columnist for the New York Times. McCarthy responded in the Spectator.

From McCarthy:
This is why I support him and why I signed on to ‘Scholars and Writers for America’. If President Trump does keep out of wars like the one the last Republican president started in Iraq, if he limits immigration and helps restore the US labour force to prosperity, he will have done what no other Republican or Democrat could do. On the other hand, should he live down to the worst expectations — getting into wars like Iraq to, as he puts it, ‘seize the oil’, or inflaming racial tensions at home — I have no doubt that he would be even more effectively opposed in his folly than George W. Bush was. The anti-war and civil-libertarian left, which has been conspicuously silent in the Obama years, would roar back to life.
The opposite would be true with President Hillary Clinton: in advancing globalist economics and pushing a foreign policy of interventionism and nation-building, she would have the support of many Republicans in Congress — and of Acela conservatives in the pages of the New York Times and Washington Post. She will reduce the left to sycophancy and make accomplices of the right’s ‘wets’. (Or ‘squishes’, as we call them here.) Whether Trump succeeds or fails as a president, he will force American politics to make a choice between globalism and the nation. With Clinton there will be no choice, only more of the same disastrous policies we have seen under both of the last two presidents. With Clinton, there is neither hope nor change.
Cal Thomas, whom I ripped in Trump the Press, saw the light last week.

From Cal Thomas:
Donald Trump is addressing the legitimate concerns of a large number of Americans who increasingly feel ignored by their government. These concerns include anemic economic growth. A growing economy produces private-sector jobs that create capital and wealth. These forgotten Americans are against open borders, which the president seemed to champion in his final speech to the United Nations General Assembly. Billionaire George Soros has pledged “to invest up to $500 million in programs and companies benefiting migrants and refugees fleeing life-threatening situations.”
Many are tired of fighting wars we don’t win and fighting terrorism with no clear strategy, all the while admitting more “refugees” from countries where terrorism is a way of death. They are weary of the denigration of law enforcement. Hardworking people are tired of being told they are not paying enough in taxes to a government that only wastes it.
The ignored are tired of being branded racists. Christians are tired of being called homophobes and Islamophobes and told their beliefs are inferior to those who want to destroy the country and undermine values that were once widely held. If the secular progressive agenda is considered progress, as they claim, what would regress look like?
Remember when I said Trump who overturn the tables and chase people with a whip of cords?

Thomas wrote, "Only one candidate for president is capable of overturning the money changers in Washington. The political, governmental and media elites have had their chance to turn things around and they have failed. Now it’s time for Trump."

What would Jesus do is always a good question. I have come to the conclusion that separation of church from state is a lousy idea. Government needs the guidance of God. We can quibble over whether it is OK to eat bacon, or drink beer. But let's agree on the big things: Greed is bad. Lying is bad. Abusing the public trust is bad.

We no longer do. Look at how corrupt the FBI is.

We who support Trump are not alone, nor are we stupid. We just haven't spent a hundred grand we don't have to get indoctrinated by some socialist professor.

(For the record, I graduated from Cleveland State thanks to the GI Bill.)

  3. George Soros wants “to invest up to $500 million in programs and companies benefiting migrants and refugees fleeing life-threatening situations.”

    Isn't that SWEET? What a compassionate guy!

    Remember that as a young man, Soros took the Nazi police around door to door, ratting out his jewish neighbors for a trip to the ovens.

    1. He also shared in all the loot confiscated.

      And he did it at age 14.

      Imagine how evil he is now.

  5. Separation of church from state was something Thomas Jefferson discussed with a friend in a letter.

    It's nowhere in the Constitution nor anywhere in the amendments. Prohibiting an "Establishment of Religion" does not mean separation of church from state. It means no state religion with legal proscriptions as they have in Saudi Arabia.

    Nice to see the real intellect is still on the Right.
