Why Trump

From Thomas E. Brennan, lawyer and former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Michigan, at a Right to Life rally on Monday:
We will vote for Donald Trump. Not because we like him. We don’t. Not because he is a role model for our children. He isn’t. Not because he is some great successful, charismatic leader who promises to make America great again. That remains to be seen. 
We will vote for Donald Trump for one reason and one reason only: because he has heard what we are saying; because he has picked up the pro life banner; because he is committed to the cause of the unborn.
It's for the children.

  1. A caveat-laden, fingers-crossed-behind-the-back endorsement. I am very pro-life and have been since the beginning. Brennan does not speak for all of us "we's." He should speak for himself.

    1. Just go ahead and tell us that you are voting for the baby- killing lesbian warmonger. We'll understand.

    2. Yo! Doc!

      My last sentence makes my statement quite clear If you are still scratching your head trying to figure it out, Brennan's comment was very much like the NeverTrumpers now trickling back home.

      "With friends like this" sort of thing.

      I have been pro-Donald since even before he made it official on 6/16/2015. jb

  2. This is a time when Dems will not vote "for the children".

  3. I can't recall Trump putting forth Pro Life signals in recent weeks (months?). When both candidates were asked at the town hall debate to describe their SC nominees, Hillary mentioned it would be a judge who would uphold Roe v Wade. When Trump spoke two minutes later, he made no mention of R v W.

    1. Trump got burned by the Right to lifers when he said that there should be some penalty having an abortion. They all came out and said that was wrong. Apparently they don't even want a fine for killing a baby. They aren't really pro life. It's conservative virtue signalling.

  4. Any society that wholesale slaughters its unborn is doomed.
    Story has it that President Reagan was once cornered by a rabid press that were looking for a 'gottcha' moment. When asked about his views on abortion, his thoughtful reply was to look around at his antagonists and state that he was quite sure that the mothers of all present had not gone that route.

  5. Unlike Thomas E. Brennan, lawyer and pompous asshole, I *proudly* cast my ballot this morning for Donald J. Trump!

    He is the first candidate since Ronald Reagan that I whole-heartedly support without reservation! Sure, he's not perfect. Tell me who (that's living) is? He's above Clinton in every respect; he is a maker, not a taker.

    Thank God that Trump decided to run, and may God guide him and keep him safe!

  6. I do like Trump.

    He fights and he fights back (even more important).

    If he's mended his ways over the years, good for him, but he's the best man this year.

    And I looked at just about everybody before coming to that conclusion.

  7. So how much has Trump donated to save the unborn? As best that I can determine, hardly anything at all. His commitment out loud has all those unconvincing exceptions that politicians spew:

    “But I am a person that feels very, very strongly about, you know, I am pro-life,” said Trump. “I'm strongly about pro-life.”

    “But I also feel that you go with the exceptions” for abortion in cases of rape or incest or to save the life of the mother, he said.

    We certainly love his "one-trick" pony impression.

  8. As recently as 3 years ago Trump said he was pro choice. I'm with Brennan, I'll vote Trump, but when it comes to any of his avowed policies, actions speak a hell of a lot louder than words.

  9. My take on Mr. Trump:
    Mrs. Clinton has stated that that Mr. Trump is “unfit for the presidency”. One could believe that based on her violations of national security, Mrs. Clinton is herself unfit for the Presidency.
    The experienced individuals that Mr. Trump has surrounded himself with, like Mr. Rudy Giuliani, General Flynn and Mr. Newt Gingrich, would not suffer a fool as President. If needed, our Constitution provides for the cabinet and Vice President to replace the President with the Vice President with the concurrence of Congress under the 25th Amendment, Section 4.
    Additionally, as Mr. Rand Simbery wrote on the Ricochet Blog, “. . . a President Trump will be on probation with both parties from the moment he takes the oath of office. He is not a black man, or a woman of any color, so the Republicans won’t have to worry about going after one of the victim classes . . . . He will operate within the Constitution, or there will be bipartisan desire to stop him, and few on either side of the aisle will have any qualms in doing so.”
    Mrs. Clinton has had no divisions in her party over her unsecured E-mail server and national security scandal; even Mr. Sanders is still supporting her. So why should anyone believe that the Democratic Party would help rein in Mrs. Clinton.
    Mrs. Clinton, like when Secretary of State, will fill her cabinet with party first yes people so expect no opposition to her actions.
