Who Is He?

This essay by Don Fredrick, ©2015, complements my earlier post titled Why Not?

“Who is Donald Trump?” The better question may be, “What is Donald Trump?”
The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment.
Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the “Republicans In Name Only.” They know there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.
Ben Carson is not an “establishment” candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides, lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an Islamo-Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)
Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why?
Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.
No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] will slash federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.) No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation’s major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New Hampshire.
Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
1. Anyone named Bush
2. Anyone named Clinton
3. Anyone who’s held political office
4. Political correctness
5. Illegal immigration
6. Massive unemployment
7. Phony “official” unemployment and inflation figures
8. Welfare waste and fraud
9. People faking disabilities to go on the dole
But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a new engine installed by experts – and neither Rodham nor Bush are mechanics with the skills or experience to install it. Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned. Jeb Bush is not a mechanic; he merely inherited a garage. Granted, Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage. He won’t hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.
“How dare they revolt!” the “elites” are bellowing. Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. “But Trump will hand the election to Clinton!” That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved “Maverick” McCain down GOP throats in 2008 – knowing he would lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would not be dramatically different than Bush or most of his fellow candidates. They would be nothing more than caretakers, not working to restore America’s greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can survive both – and there is little evidence that the establishment candidates of either party understand that.
The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.
Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes). The world is at war with radical Islamists; all the world’s glaciers are not melting; and Rosie O’Donnell is a fat pig.
Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan. But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant.
· One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands.
· One jihadist poisoning a city’s water supply could kill tens of thousands.
· One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions.
Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don’t care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations. While Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [Islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.
The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much.
You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016, …[their] cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we’ve seen before. The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge. The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots.
Whether it is Bush’s Karl Rove or Clinton’s John Podesta who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little. If the establishment wins, America loses.

Obama: The Lamest Duck

Socialism is not the Answer

PJ Media
By Victor Davis Hanson

President Obama is boxed in a state of paralysis—more so than typical lame-duck presidents.

His hard-left politics have insidiously eroded the Democratic Party, which has lost both houses of Congress and the vast majority of the state legislatures, state elected offices, and governorships. Obama has redefined the black vote, as a necessary, no-margin-of-error 95% bloc majority to offset his similar creation of an increasingly monolithic 65% bloc white vote. We are no longer individual voters, but, in Chicago-politics style, merely faceless “Latinos,” “Asians,” “African-Americans,” “gays,” “women,” and now “whites.”

Obama issues a new initiative—and the nation snoozes. He wastes the day on the golf links—and the nation snoozes. He smear his critics, invites a rapper to the White House whose latest album cover has a dead white judge lying in front of the White House—and the nation snoozes. He cozies up to America’s…

Why Not?

I have often said that the USA needs to be run like a business, and lawyer-politicians are the wrong people to become Administrators and Commanders-in-Chief. Now that we have a businessman running for office, and my vision has been achieved I am beginning to run scared. The problem stems from the fact that We the People have been conditioned over many years to listen to the rhetoric of polished lawyers who are honed in wordmanship, and debate. Donald Trump the current Republican front runner has none of these qualities, but instead he is a street fighter. He has no problem attacking his opponent without regard  to the etiquette of debate. A smash at an opponents character or his standing in the polls takes precedence over logical argument of the issues. The end result is a debate that resembles a street brawl rather than polite argument of ideas.

Our media does not help the matter  because they love the brawling. It gives them fodder for sound bites and analysis that keeps people listening and customers paying for commercial air time. The First Amendment of the Constitution allows freedom of speech for the purpose of giving the press the ability to ask tough questions of candidates and to dig for answers and the truth. Modern day media outlets avoid spending money on digging for answers. Instead many of them create answers or avoid answers by sticking to analyzing the brawls and poll numbers.

People ask me If I will vote for Trump. My answer is that I like Trump because he has upset the established organization of politicians and is redefining the rules of running for office. He continues to poke his finger into the eyes of the establishment and We the People are loving it. Why? We the People are sick and tired of the elected establishment ignoring our voices. They pander and say what they have to say to get our votes, then forget about us until the next election. They become the elites who don’t work very hard, have eons of time off, and plenty of money to spend when they are vacationing. In the meantime our country suffers from massive numbers of people unemployed or under-employed without a single ounce of effort being expended to change things.

What scares me about Trump is his fix for leveling the playing field with China. He continues to spew rhetoric about installing tariffs to make China pay. A friend reminded me of a former business man president who did much the same thing. He installed tariffs on countries getting the benefit of our market and they in turn installed tariffs on our products coming into their country. The resulting trade war only exacerbated the Great Depression. The president’s name is Herbert Hoover. It frightens me to hear a businessman spewing such nonsensical rhetoric about tariffs. I agree that China should be more grateful for the gift we gave them beginning in the seventies when Richard Nixon visited and opened the doors of trade. Ever since the USA has rushed to send all of its manufacturing jobs and machines to them. The Chinese should be kissing our butt for opening that door for them. Instead, they celebrate having more billionaires than the USA.

Capitalism survives by making profit. Without profit companies die. In order to make profit, companies must continuously cut their costs. Cost cutting is necessary to compete in a world market. China can out compete with US companies because they play low wages. Their starving people are very happy to make a dollar a day or hour because it is more money than they have ever seen in their wretched lives. Suddenly these dirt poor farmers have cash to live on. They can afford to go to the market to buy a cat for Sunday dinner rather than have to search the neighborhood for strays.

Cheap labor comes from poor people who are starving and will do anything for money. They don’t care about minimum wages, they care about having a few dollars to spend on food for their kids. They are willing to work for those few dollars and avoid protesting for more. They just work. Where do these poor people come from? They are immigrants. That is why the governments across the world are now competing for immigrants. The US economy needs immigrants willing to do the work our native born people won’t do. Why won’t our natives do the work? Most of them are too highly educated to get their hands dirty. We have brain washed our kids to go to school and get smart so they don’t have to work hard. The end result is we have bred generations of kids who don’t know what physical work is, nor do they know the value of physical work.

I taught my kids that they should be willing to work at  many jobs. That way they will understand the value of going to school. They will understand what kind of education they need to earn a living. All of my kids have done that. They all began working when they were fifteen. My oldest son worked on a maintenance crew for a manufacturing pant. His summers consisted of painting a cyclone fence with a brush; he is now an engineer. My daughter found work in a nursing home changing diapers and feeding patients, she became a nurse, my youngest son worked in a video store as a clerk then promoted himself to become burger flipper at the Golden Arches, He is now a computer scientist. My grand children are being taught similar values. Work be it physical, or mundane repetitive tasks is good experience for life.

So why does Donald Trump scare me? He isn’t talking about making America competitive with the world market. He wants to make America Great again, but he hasn’t showed me how he is going to do it. Perhaps it is his campaigning technique to not show his hand sooner than needed, but right now his brawling ways are his strongest suite. He needs to show us how he is going to stimulate the economy to resurrect the 93,000,000 jobs that disappeared from our country.
