Donald Trump for president? I don’t think anything has so irked me since that image of Herr Pelosi–massive phallic gavel in both hands– strutting to the Capitol throwing her head back in a manic, evil, tyrannical laugh. This image:
In case you’ve forgotten (and sadly it seems that far too many patriots HAVE forgotten), this was Pelosi’s victory walk. This was her leading her traitorous horde to the chamber to vote to shove that healthcare monstrosity down our throats. This is when she was seconds from sealing the deal, forcing a totally-partisan overhaul of 6% of our nation’s economy, handing it over to federal government control. This was her, strutting with transparent arrogance, greatly pleased with herself for willfully ignoring the will of the people. Patriots had assembled how many times in DC? Been vocal in how many town halls? Made their wishes known, loudly and clearly. This is Pelosi’s shining moment: kicking us in the teeth and forcing passage of a bill that she hadn’t read. THIS is Nancy Pelosi.
And Donald Trump thinks she did an great job. That she’s fantastic.
Look, I get it. I was warming to Trump. Big. I even told Adrienne that he was the top of my list of potentials. But then I started watching him more closely, listening more closely, and doing a fair bit of googling (it’s amazing what pops up when you search “Soros Trump”). The thing that first garnered my attention and suspicion was the donations to democrat candidates, including (horrifyingly) Harry Reid. Against Sharron Angle, who was up in the polls. Not in some distant past, but last November. OUR November. “Remember November” November.
We mock BO’s insane narcissism, but we embrace Trump? Someone who is at least as, if not more, narcissistic? We are concerned by BO’s complete disregard for the balance of power laid out in the Constitution, but we think that Trump would have any more regard for it? He’s a progressive, he supports big government universal health care and a host of other unAmerican ideas. He wanted Bush impeached over Iraq, believed that Bush had lied (even though he hadn’t, as we know now from the wikileaks documents). Do you really think someone with Trump’s strong sense of his own judgment, of himself, would ever listen to the will of the people? Do you really think that Trump would ever give a rip what we say if we disagree with him or his policies? If you believe that, you haven’t been paying attention (or haven’t ever seen an episode of The Apprentice). We disdain BO for being a Soros stooge, placed in that position to advance Soros’ and the leftist agenda (until Soros tired of him and decided to replace him with . . . someone.). But we ignore Trump’s long-standing and unsavory ties to Soros?
The left has one playbook. One. And we are being played. Oh yes, Trump is a leftist–he’s calling himself a “compassionate conservative” nowadays, and we all know that means nanny state entitlements and big government. Remember how we’d raise questions about BO to his supporters? Remember how we’d warn about the “spreading the wealth” red flag? About his ties to Bill Ayers and Reverend Wright? And remember how we were told to shut up, that BO’s not a socialist, that it doesn’t matter who his friends or associates or acquaintances were? Remember how we kept saying “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”? And how we were told that was narrow-minded, paranoid, and stoooopid?
I certainly remember. Very clearly.
And I’m seeing the exact same thing happen now. Only now we are the dupes, the koolaid-slurping loons who won’t hear a word against our new messiah. We poo-poo the associations with Soros, the donations to numerous progressives (high-ranking, out-of-the-closet commies) . . . well, he’s just a business man, he’s being shrewd. So what if Soros and Soros-related organizations (including one that supports “Palestine”) invested in Trump Towers? Where else would Trump get the money to build his empire? He’s shrewd, after all. It doesn’t matter if he and Soros were both named in the same suit for racketeering and fraud and money laundering. Nothing came of it, after all. Smoke doesn’t mean there‘s a fire, you’re being stooooopid. And paranoid. And narrow-minded.
It’s deja flipping vu all over again, only we’re the sheeple now. Blindly following our new pied piper whose only tune is destroying BO, causing a constitutional crisis, and unseating the emperor with no clothes. And seating in his stead another, equally-naked emperor who has the exact same agenda, the exact same ideology.
We can’t be that stupid.
[Update: I thought I’d share this tidbit with you, too. Apparently, Trump needed a new parking lot for some hotel or casino in Atlantic City, and in order to get it, he decided to “convince” a state agency to use eminent domain to take a woman’s home (source for all quotes in link). She’d lived in that home “for more than three decades,” but hey, Trump needed somewhere for his customers to park their limos, so the state stepped in on Trump’s behalf. She sued. She won.
But Trump’s a heartless creep who would always put his own interests before those of the people of this nation. We know this because we know his record. Anyone who could raze a woman’s home for a limo parking lot is not fit to be president of this nation. Eminent domain was never intended for private use, nor to be loosely defined as “community good” or whatever they’re using to justify taking people’s homes against their will to put up shopping malls and parking lots. This sort of thing is exactly what is wrong with big, over-reaching government.]
