Is there a more useless politician than Mitt Romney? Not only is he a massive snake in the Republican Party, but he also apparently is so sensitive to criticism and maintaining his image that he had a burner account for years, with tweets all either defending something he was doing, praising himself, or attacking Trump (which he does personally anyway).
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) recently revealed that he had a “lurker” Twitter account to The Atlantic McKay Coppins, though he did not disclose what the name of the account actually was. However, he gave them enough information about the account for them to discover what it was. His now-not-so-secret burner account is called Pierre Delecto, with the handle “@qaws9876”. Not sure what that’s supposed to mean, but when asked about it, Romney confirmed it by saying “C’est moi”, which is French for “it’s me.”
Of course, scorn and ridicule are some of what Romney received as a result. The guy is too worried about his own image, wherein he faults Donald Trump for tweeting too much and engaging in pointless Twitter debates with people, and yet does the exact same thing with a burner account.
Now, the reason I call it a “burner” account is because this is sometimes used when it comes to other celebrities, namely sports figures, when they use accounts other than their official ones to defend themselves or to attack someone else. People like former Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Bryan Colangelo and Brooklyn Nets superstar forward Kevin Durant have all been found to have used burner accounts for various reasons, though often for some of the same reasons as Romney does.
However, there is a difference between a sports star using a burner account and a 72-YEAR-OLD SITTING UNITED STATES SENATOR USING A BURNER ACCOUNT. Dumb as it may have been, Durant’s burner accounts (yes, plural) aren’t really a big deal because the guy is considerably younger and more naïve. But what excuse does Romney have?
The guy is less than a year younger than Trump and yet has the mental capacity of a child. And I honestly mean that. You have to be fundamentally dumb to side with the people and party who destroyed you in 2012 just because you have a personal vendetta against the Republican president.
You have to be stupid to think you can honestly primary Donald Trump and actually expect to win. Anthony Scaramucci has said that he believes Trump “will not be the [Republican] nominee come November.” This guy also has a personal vendetta against Trump for having fired him (and likely other reasons) but he’s an idiot for actually expecting this.
Similarly, with reports saying Romney was asking other Republicans about primarying Trump, he falls into a similar category of stupidity as a result.
But it’s not just stupidity; it’s hypocrisy. Many people have attacked Trump for being on Twitter so much and for engaging in pointless and needless arguments with other people, whether they be politicians or even celebrities who hate his guts. Romney is one of them, but he’s apparently been doing this LONG BEFORE Trump even showed up.
“Pierre Delecto”’s Twitter account was created in July of 2011, only one month after Romney announced he would be running for president.
Among Pierre’s tweets, at least recently, we find tweets replying to supposed conservative journalist Jennifer Rubin saying Romney is spineless because he won’t confront Trump by replying: “Jennifer, you need to take a breath. Maybe you can then acknowledge the people who agree with you in large measure even if not in every measure.”
In other words, he’s telling her: “Hey, don’t be mean to me because we are on the same side on this issue.” Only he’s too scared to use his actual account to say that because he has an image of a morally and intellectually superior political prince who finds such confrontation to be beneath someone of his stature.
He’s a fool and he doesn’t even know it.
And people certainly aren’t defending him for this either. Even former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said having a fake Twitter account for this reason is “the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts like Carlos Danger.”
I wholeheartedly agree. Romney is like a 14-year-old girl. He won’t directly fight with someone outright, but will talk trash about them in secret or behind their backs, trying to ruin the reputations of the people they hate. Teenage girls can be vindictive like that (not that I would personally know, being a guy) and that’s what Romney is acting like. He has the mind of a child.
He doesn’t have the spine to directly stand up to anyone or do much to defend himself, so he sets up fake Twitter accounts to do it in total obscurity. Unfortunately, he made Pierre’s account private, but I wish I could’ve seen what he said when Harry Reid said he put his dog on top of his car during a road-trip or when he was accused of not caring about an employee’s wife dying of cancer or when the whole “binders full of women” fiasco occurred.
The guy is a total coward and is the face of the Republican Never Trump movement. I’d say it’s a great fit.

I wrote at the end of my previous article, the one discussing how Trump is not caving on the wall, that I might write an article discussing the various reasons not to allow any democrat to beat Trump in the 2020 Presidential election.
Well, here’s my list for as many reasons as I can think of (that won’t make this article as long as an encyclopedia because I could probably list many more reasons).
Reason number one: No matter who becomes the Democrat Party nominee, they are all basically the same. What do I mean by that? Well, unlike the Republican Party, which is stupidly split on a lot of issues such as immigration, healthcare and many other things, the Democrats, to their credit, actually know how to stay united.
They may debate with one another as to what might be the best option, but at the end of the day, they manage to come together and actually get things done in their agenda. And their agenda really differs little from person to person.
While Trump’s and Jeb’s, or Cruz’s, or Rubio’s agenda are fairly different, the Democrats all follow the Leftist agenda. Sure, one might prioritize something different from another, but it all leads them to the same place: the growing in size and scope of the government and their own power, while taking your freedoms away.
It doesn’t matter if they prioritize gun control, climate change, LGBT “rights”, healthcare, it all leads to the Left getting more and more power. Ultimately, these are all things every Leftist agrees on. So it doesn’t matter if Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Beto O’Rourke becomes President, they would all basically be the same and support the exact same things. There really is no good option among them, just the least likely to utterly screw over the country (and there is little difference in that area as well).
Reason number two: Just as Trump was able to dismantle Obama’s legacy, so would any Democrat be able to do that to Trump’s.
The unfortunate thing about the GOP stabbing Trump in the back repeatedly is that they don’t get much done. And what they get done can easily be overturned. And what is overturned, even if unconstitutionally, they will not seriously fight against. The proof is in the fact that they had ample opportunity in the past couple of years to get rid of Obamacare and did not bother to do so. As far as the tax cuts go, as good as those are, they can easily be taken away. With a Democrat running the country again, the GOP would do little to actually fight back, just like during the Obama years.
This means saying goodbye to our tax cuts and being faced with job-killing tax rates. It means the dismantling of our border. It means the ultimate destruction of our freedoms. Maybe not with the next Democrat President, but it would certainly lead to that in the future.
Reason number 3: We now know the Left’s true face. I often say that Trump’s election victory didn’t create this Leftist insanity, but it did let the mask slip from the Left’s face. In the past, the Left would at least pretend to be a little more reasonable. That is long gone now.
I’m not saying that had Hillary won, we would be in a better place. Far from it, the magnitude at which we’d be screwed is incalculable. Not to mention that the very reason Bernie Sanders felt confident to come out as socialist, and other people have felt confident to come out as socialist, is 8 years of Obama moving the needle of our country’s governmental system farther and farther to the Left.
Trump didn’t create Bernie Sanders or help Bernie come out as socialist, but it did get the Left to more aggressively embrace socialism. No, maybe not everyone on the Democrat Party is quite so willing to call themselves socialist, but that’s where they’re headed. If socialism is what sells and gets them votes, that’s what they’ll embrace (not that they weren’t embracing it before, but they were at least trying to not come right out as socialists).
This means implementing more and more socialist policies that will lead to the United States emulating China at the very least. Since we are still a super power and the wealthiest country in the world, we can take some hits, but if the trend goes farther and farther Left, we will eventually not be the wealthiest country in the world and we will quickly fall from grace as a super power.
Again, maybe not with the next immediate Democrat President, but that’s what it would lead to.
Reason number 4: there is no other Republican out there that has the cojones to do what Trump is trying to do.
One thing that we’ve all noticed in the past couple of years (and really throughout Obama’s tenure as well) is the fact that the GOP tends to be pretty chummy with the Democrat Party and often ignores the very constituents that elected them into power. In what can only be considered an abusive relationship, the GOP tries to appease Democrats and the media, all the while pretending to be fighting for something, but ultimately not getting anything done. Whenever the media calls them racist, they bow their heads in shame and say “I’m sorry, I will never do something like that again”. Regardless of what they do, it’s never enough for the Democrats and the media, with them demanding the Republicans hand over everything including the kitchen sink.
These past two years in particular have shown this level of cowardice. While not all Republicans are guilty of this, far too many have been complacent at the least. John McCain, up to his death, opposed Trump (and I imagine he was all too happy to have his funeral be a massive Trump-bashing fest). Jeff Flake is still a nuisance. Bob Corker ditto. And incoming GOPe (GOP establishment) people like Romney certainly will take up the mantle left behind by these people.
The evidence to this is clear when they made their best efforts to try and legitimize the illegitimate Mueller investigation, with Flake actually trying to pass legislation that protects the crooked prosecutor.
With Trump out of the picture, what Republican in Washington or in government in general would be willing to do what Trump’s been trying to do: take on the Deep State? I wouldn’t put my trust in Ted Cruz, as conservative as I think he is. Same goes for people like Rep. Mark Meadows or Rep. Jim Jordan, as good as I think they are (and they’re really trying to help Trump build the wall here).
Now, I know I said in a previous article that I did not picture Trump doing this back in 2014, two years before the 2016 election. So someone could potentially come up and try to take on the Deep State, but I don’t think there’s much of a chance of that. Even less that they’d succeed at any capacity.
Not trying to be pessimistic here, just trying to highlight the importance of helping Trump win in 2020.
The next Democrat President, whether he or she comes into power after 2020, 2024, 2028, or whatever, will most likely be the most Leftist and socialist President we will ever have seen. One who would make Obama look like Reagan by comparison. And the ones to follow the next Democrat POTUS will only move the line farther to the Left until we reach the end: complete and total communism.
Even if Republican Presidents were to be elected in between those Democrats, there’d be little they could do, even if they were willing to.
This is why it’s so important that we help Trump win 2020 no matter what. Of course, not building a wall would be a huge detriment, but that’d still be no reason to allow a Democrat to take over, ensuring that the borders get even less security and more lives grow at stake.
It’s also why it’s so important to elect truly conservative, truly CHRISTIAN people to government and to get truly conservative and truly CHRISTIAN SCOTUS justices.
For as much as I talked about Kavanaugh being conservative and a Christian, I might have to eat my own words, given what he’s done so far. Of course, there is still a possibility for redemption for him (both in terms of redeeming himself to conservatives and being redeemed by Christ), so I’m not quite ready to say he was a mistake of a pick (Amy Coney Barrett wouldn’t have done what Kavanaugh did, though), but he’s got a lot to make up for.
If we can get more and more conservatives and Christians into power, then there is a chance at truly defeating the Left, but that will have to come with a complete Christian revival and the ability and willingness to go after the Deep State’s crookedness, not just in calling them out over it, but to execute justice as well.
Trump won’t be around forever. Unlike Xi Jinping, Trump can’t declare himself President For Life (I imagine a future Democrat President would try that, though). So once Trump is gone from office, what comes after? That’s something we have to come to answer sooner rather than later, because for as much as I hope and think Trump can be re-elected, there is a chance he won’t be.
When the time comes for him to leave office, we will have to brace ourselves for what would come after. And there is no better way to do that than to consult and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
You see, while I’ve given a few reasons to not allow the Democrats to beat Trump in 2020 (and I think there are a bunch more, but I don’t want to make this article too long), the matter of fact is that I’m probably right about what would come with a Trump defeat. As a result, nothing good will be brought about, and we could well be facing the beginning of the end of America as we know it (unless we have the aforementioned Christian revival, but God knows if or when that would happen).
That’s not to say there wouldn’t be a United States of America in, say, 50 or 100 years, but it would be practically unrecognizable from the one that was founded.
But the good news about even such a scenario happening is that we are not only citizens of the United States, but also citizens of the Kingdom of God. I saw this often during both the 2012 election and 2016 election (and I’ll probably also see it in 2020), but I remember a post that read “regardless of who’s President, Jesus is King,” or something to that nature. And it’s true.
Jesus was King before America was founded. He has been King for as long as America has been around, and He will be King after America falls.
One of the main objectives of this site has been to try to direct people to Christ. Though I don’t always get to that point, I think I really should start doing this far more often. Because the unfortunate reality is that, eventually, one of these lunatics is going to be in the White House. As a result, we really must brace for what is to come. And there is no better way to brace for disaster than in the comfort of Christ.
My mission is not just to fight for the survival of America, which really is only a secondary mission, but to also fight for the survival and growth of Christianity; helping as many people to receive Christ as I possibly can.
So that’s the good news regardless of what may happen from here on out. Even if evil wins against America, Jesus has already won against evil. That being said, I think we all should try and fight against the evil that wishes to destroy America. Though that really goes without saying.

I had written an article fairly similar to this one back in September of 2017 after Trump reportedly made a deal with Schumer and Pelosi regarding DACA that excluded the wall (and such a report was later debunked). So we’ve been here before, with conservatives and Trump supporters sitting at the edge of the cliff believing that they’re being thrown over. I can tell you right now, relax. Allow me to explain the situation.
This time is different from the September article because that article talked about an MSM report about Trump caving on the wall, which I explained why that was bogus. The way it’s different this time is that Trump himself tweeted something that, at first glance, can be seen as potentially caving (if you don’t look at the other things the Trump administration is saying, of course). But even in those tweets, you can also see that he is not caving on the wall.
Here are the tweets that I’m sure you’ve seen float around if you have a Twitter account and are following Donald Trump: “The Democrats, are saying loud and clear that they do not want to build a Concrete Wall – but we are not building a Concrete Wall, we are building artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it…” “…It will be beautiful and, at the same time, give our Country the security that our citizens deserve. It will go up fast and save us BILLIONS of dollars a month once completed!”
At first glance, it certainly looks like Trump is caving on the wall. Literally saying “we are not building a Concrete Wall” will naturally and understandably lead people to think he’s caving. But here’s the thing: a concrete wall would be next to useless and worthless to have at the Southern Border.
First, a concrete wall is not see-through, so you can’t see people coming on the other side unless you get a lot more Border Patrol agents. Having a see-through steel slat wall is far more cost-effective and effective in general.
Second, a concrete wall is not indestructible. Matter of fact, it wouldn’t take all that much to break through or dig through or simply blow it up. And since you can’t see through it, you don’t have much of a chance to catch anyone trying anything there.
Now, I can definitely understand why there are Trump supporters out there who legitimately think he’s caving. When Trump first brought up the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall”, I think a lot of people had a pretty good idea as to what it would look like: a concrete, stone or even steel wall (not see-through) that is pretty much similar to a prison wall (only instead of keeping people in, it keeps people out).
Or at the very least, a wall that is similar to the one in Israel that separates them from the Palestinian terrorists trying to invade and destroy Israel in the West Bank.
Here’s the thing about that: Israel’s wall is covering the border between Israel and the West Bank, with 272 miles already finished (as of 2011), 36 miles under construction (as of 2011) and 132 miles planned (as of 2011). In total, that’s a planned wall that covers 440 miles. Of course, Israel has more than just the West Bank to worry about in terms of border security, but in other areas, such as in its border with Egypt, they have chosen to build up fences that are reportedly more effective than ours, according to the Washington Examiner.
440 miles along the West Bank in comparison to around 2,000 miles in our southern border. Pretty big difference.
Now, returning to Trump himself, there’s more to look at than just the tweets. Yes, the tweets could bring people to the wrong conclusion, but it’s definitely that: the WRONG conclusion.
Sarah Sanders and Trump have said as much that they were looking for other ways to fund the wall, at least $5 billion to start it, apart from having to deal with the Democrats. That’s not caving, that’s having a plan B.
Democrats are most likely not going to give Trump any money for a border wall, and Trump himself is acutely aware of that. As a result, in order to fulfill the biggest promise he made during the campaign, he’s looking at other options to get the wall funded, such as signing an executive order and having the military pay for the wall.
Trump looking for ways to build the wall that don’t lead to a government shutdown (which I would be okay with) is not an indication of Trump caving on the wall whatsoever.
Now, I can understand people’s frustrations here. The best chance we have at building the wall is with a Republican Congress, which we will only have for a few more weeks. Personally, I wish I had not expected so much out of traitorous RINOs like McCain and Paul Ryan because if we did not fund a wall in the first two years of Trump’s presidency, we won’t likely fund the wall in the next few weeks either.
But that doesn’t fall on Trump’s feet. It falls on the Republican Establishment being unwilling to listen to their constituents… again. The real ire ought to fall on the Republican Establishment that kept Obamacare funded, kept Planned Parenthood funded, and kept our borders unsecured.
Trump is fighting with these guys when he should only be fighting with Democrats. Of course, I do think Trump has the ability to do more than he’s doing right now, but any sort of anguish directed at him is really misplaced.
I’m not saying he doesn’t make mistakes. I think that Omnibus bill he signed was a pretty big one. But the real people that should be earning people’s scorn are people like Paul Ryan, who was Democrats’ best friend throughout these last two years, even when he got none of the credit and he was still attacked because he had an “R” next to his name. People like John McCain who, up to the moment he died, was a big obstructionist holding the Republican Party hostage (let’s not forget he was the deciding factor in not repealing and replacing Obamacare). People like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker who decided to switch sides under the guise of “country over party” which is a massive sham.
Trump is not caving on the wall. He’s not a quitter. Watching The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, one recurring theme throughout the seasons that I’ve watched is that he hates it when someone just decides to quit or doesn’t give their best efforts. He hates quitters, so he would not be willing to quit himself.
But again, there’s really no actual and substantial indication that he is caving or quitting in any way. He has a tough job ahead of him and many in the Republican Party like the aforementioned people (except McCain at this point, but Romney will replace him in this obstructionist capacity in the new Congress) are all too happy to stab him in the back on this issue and let the blame fall on him… and it seems to be working, sadly.
So no, Trump’s not caving on the wall. I think he may have thought that once he became President that everyone would automatically love and support him, particularly on the wall. But he soon came to the realization there are seriously depraved and evil S.O.B’s out there in Washington.
And unfortunately, Democrats took control of the House, so there is not much chance at all that the wall will be built through Congress once the new Congress assembles, which is largely the reason for Trump to be looking for another way to get the wall.
It certainly won’t be easy to get it done and we might even have to wait until after the 2020 election to get a wall funded (hopefully it won’t come to that). But under such circumstance, the choice still remains pretty clear. It’s either the chance at building a wall with a newly re-elected and re-inaugurated Trump or zero chance at building a wall with a newly elected and newly inaugurated President Bernie Sanders, or President Joe Biden or whoever wins the Democrat nomination.
I’m not saying this is a good position to be in – it’s certainly not. But unfortunately, it might well come to that and we have to be ready to face reality.
Like during the midterms, I’ll take Republicans sometimes doing something good over Democrats purging this country from its foundation and turning it into something it was never intended to become: another China, Soviet Russia, Cuba or Venezuela.
I could write every single reason not to allow any Democrat to beat Trump (something both Trump supporters and NeverTrump conservatives should consider), but that will have to wait for another time. As it is, the main point to take away from this article is right in the title: Trump is NOT giving up on the wall. Whether he succeeds or not is a different story, but I think he can do it. We just need to pray to God that we can overcome the evils of the Left.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

Last Friday, despite having promised to vote in favor of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to make him a Supreme Court Justice, Sen. Jeff “Snow” Flake (R-AZ) asked that a one-week FBI investigation on the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh be made before they hold the vote they were originally going to hold the week prior to the last.
Can’t say I’m surprised by Flake’s decision to Flake out of the vote, having talked with Democrats shortly before making this request. While Lindsey Graham seems to have turned over a new leaf (I operate under the Reagan motto of “trust, but verify” with him), Jeff Flake is being his same spineless self.
Let me tell you why an FBI investigation is entirely irrelevant in this case, particularly after Dr. Ford’s hearing.
First and foremost, it’s simply a delay tactic. Have you ever heard of an FBI investigation starting, investigating and wrapping something up in a week? I never have. The FBI investigating Dr. Ford’s allegations would definitely take longer than a week. After a week of investigating, they wouldn’t find anything substantial, so they would likely need more time to investigate, thus further delaying the vote.
It’s also a delay tactic in that the Left can definitely find another woman who wishes to be a hero to the Left and accuse Kavanaugh of something horrific. And if/when they do, then obviously, they would need the FBI to look into that, further delaying the vote.
Second, it’s not within the FBI’s jurisdiction to investigate this sort of thing. They investigate federal crimes, not local ones. So the only law enforcement agency that can investigate this is the police department of the area the party took place.
Third, the FBI has already extensively vetted Kavanaugh and not one of these stories ever came up. By the looks of things, every allegation has people there to witness and corroborate the occurrence. No one ever mentioned anything like this and I would seriously doubt everyone Kavanaugh went to school with and everyone he knew was a staunch conservative who would support him or even go as far as to lie to the FBI to protect him if they saw him do what he’s accused of.
Fourth and finally, the FBI would get no farther than the Senate Judiciary Committee has in investigating this matter. Dr. Ford does not remember the time or the place of the alleged groping. Every witness Dr. Ford brought up has either denied such party even happening or being there to witness the alleged sexual assault. Not to mention this happened well over 30 years ago, so any search would likely come up fruitless.
If you go to the FBI with the story that you were sexually assaulted, but offer no evidence at all, offer no witness that can corroborate your story and cannot offer even the basic information of the where and when of the assault, the investigation ends before it even began. There’s just not enough there to begin an investigation, let alone conduct one and complete one.
For anyone to request or demand an FBI investigation into the matter is indicative of the kind of mentality they have: delay this vote until Kavanaugh is destroyed or pulls out. No rational and logical person would believe the FBI could do much here, let alone demand they do something.
Flake’s request that the FBI investigate this matter is not sane, it’s not justice for Dr. Ford or any of the accusers. It’s his final betrayal to the United States as an outgoing Senator, given his approval numbers are so low he could not even hope to run in his own state. Ironically, it’s this kind of crap that plunged his numbers in the first place.
But my overall point is that it was always irrelevant for the FBI to investigate this, but particularly so after Thursday’s testimony from Dr. Ford. She offered no more evidence than she did in her letter to Feinstein or in the days and weeks running up to the vote. In the meantime, more and more women stepped forth to accuse him of even more unbelievable and uncorroborated crap, all of which the Left and now Flake are demanding be investigated by the FBI.
Again, with what little information Dr. Ford and the other accusers (one of which is anonymous) have given, an investigation cannot actually be made, especially for Dr. Ford’s accusation, which is at the center of this whole thing.
It especially cannot be made in the span of a single week. That’s ludicrous. The FBI and Special Counsel have spent roughly a year and a half and longer investigating Trump-Russia collusion and have found nothing substantial. And that’s still ongoing, though falling apart as it may be.
So the FBI absolutely cannot investigate anything in a single week even with more information than what they would be given. Which means this investigation is not made to find out the truth. Ford’s hearing on Thursday supposedly was about finding out the truth and nothing was learned that was not already known.
This investigation is not meant to find out the truth but to delay the vote as much as they can. I would be naïve to believe that another delay would not be called. And then another. And then another.
But even with all of this b.s. going on, I will still vote Republican in November. Not because I appreciate what the establishment Republicans are doing. I abhor it. But rather because I do not want to be in this position or in a worse position after November.
What I mean by that is that we need to flood the Senate with Republicans. Right now, we depend too much on too few people who can change their mind on a whim and side with the Left. With more Republicans in the Senate (and the House, but that’s another story), we would likely have more dependable people to vote for things that are favorable to the country and against things that are not favorable to us.
Yes, there would still be establishment people like Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, etc., but there would be more conservatives in the mix as well.
Not to mention that there’s no way I would allow the alternative to take over the country. The alternative, of course, being Democrats who will likely fully and openly embrace socialism to the level of Nazism and punish all of us who dared defy the entitled brats in the Establishment.
I’m already energized to vote Republican, but if the GOP Establishment fails to confirm Kavanaugh, I will be voting with a vengeance. But not in favor of Democrats, that’d be actual insanity. Rather, voting for Republicans who will not betray the people they are representing.
We need to drain the swamp at all levels of the government. Pronto.

I have talked previously about NeverTrumpers after roughly a year or so of Trump’s presidency and that they were nothing but stubborn at best and flat out traitors to their core values at worst.
And this remains to be the case, with achievement after achievement in the Trump Presidency coming about and proving himself to be a strong conservative President.
But while the NeverTrump crowd may have had some argument against Trump’s actual conservative nature (meaning he had not quite proven himself as a true conservative at the time), after a year and a half, even NeverTrumpers agree that his policy has actually been conservative. But that hasn’t stopped them from remaining NeverTrumpers.
Most recently, NeverTrump “conservative” Jonah Goldberg posed this challenge for those who support Trump and follow him anyway: “Please come up with a definition of good character that Donald Trump can clear.”
So now, it’s not that Donald Trump isn’t conservative. He clearly is. What has people like Goldberg remain NeverTrump is the POTUS’s character. And at that point, if that is their argument, I can’t help but believe these people are nothing but crybabies.
Seriously? His character is the reason you don’t support him? Never mind the fact that Trump HAS proven himself to be a solid conservative, if inarticulate at times, and HAS passed multiple policies that would have any true conservative giggle like a schoolgirl. Never mind that Trump is the closest thing to Reagan we have had since the Big Dipper himself. Never mind all the actual progress we are witnessing economically, internationally, etc. No, all that goes out the window because Trump does not have good character in these people’s eyes.
Only problem is that they are wrong about him even with that “argument”.
David Horowitz tried to explain some good character traits, all of which I agree with, by saying: “He has an amazing family. He’s loyal to a fault. He loves the country that gave him a privileged life. He works around the clock for ordinary Americans & their security. He would never appoint a treacherous individual to head the CIA. Wake up Jonah. It’s a war & u can’t be neutral.”
Unfortunately, Jonah decided to act like a typical Leftist and flat out attack David: “This is total nonsense David. He’s not loyal to his wives. Read up on how he treated Roy Cohn ffs. He doesn’t work around the clock. He won’t read and won’t stop watching TV. I can’t tell if your head is up your ass or his.”
Civility going out the window is synonymous with Leftist behavior, so I’m not surprised a NeverTrumper said this. At this point, there are no NeverTrump conservatives, just people who used to be conservative but have switched sides effectively just because they don’t like Trump on a personal basis.
David, in an article talking about this Twitter exchange, tries to clarify that his “loyal to a fault” example was about sticking with Omarosa despite other people saying she was no good, as well as sticking with Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions when he first entered office, saying that any other Republican would have thrown them under the bus, regardless of the truthfulness of any accusations against them.
David also defends Trump’s marriages, saying we all have our faults. And finally, David defends Trump by saying that no other Republican would stand up to the unending hatred of the Left and the media, and that no other Republican would stay the course of working for the benefit of the American people and keep his promises.
So I say kudos to David for this defense of Trump against someone who would rather see our country continue Obama’s stagnation than see Trump help heal our nation but with subjectively bad character.
However, I have my own response to Jonah’s original tweet.
Do you want to know Trump’s primary positive character trait? He is selfless.
Donald Trump was the last person in the world who needed to run for office. He had built a billion-dollar company, established a solid brand with his name, and set up his family to live in the lap of luxury for generations.
He owned multiple buildings with his name on them, lived in one of them in New York City, and was friends with both Democrats and Republicans, living as the golden standard for American exceptionalism and the American Dream’s fullest potential.
He was set for the rest of his life, his children’s lives and his grandchildren’s lives. The Trump name would likely go down in history among the Rockefellers as top American families.
And yet, despite him living in luxury buildings that he built; despite having a vast fortune; despite living with the knowledge that he had done enough work for his family to be set for a very long time despite the economic climates they may see, he still chose to run for office.
It wasn’t a financial decision. He would LOSE money running for office and donates the salary he is given as POTUS. It wasn’t a PR decision to heighten his image. If it were, he would have run as a Democrat or not at all.
It wasn’t a decision for the benefit of his own family. Like I said, the Trumps already had it made.
It was a decision to truly help out those who had been suffering the most after 8 years of Obama’s socialist policies.
It was a decision to help out the 99% of Americans who would be forced to pay for Obama’s social programs and ludicrous spending. It was a decision to Make America Great Again.
But why? Why him? He already had it made, and he stood the most to lose. By running Republican, particularly with such a message, he stood to lose just about everything. The very second he strayed from the Democrat Party’s slave plantation of thought (yes, all races are subject to their brainwashing tactics), he became an enemy of the Democrat Party.
Granted, the Left didn’t take him seriously at the time. But such words against Obama and the Democrats most certainly ticked them off. No doubt, he lost a lot of friends on Day 1 of the campaign trail.
So running for POTUS as a Republican and with such a message of Making America Great Again wasn’t going to help him make or retain friends within the swamp.
He knew perfectly well what he stood to lose. Had he lost the election, with how fervently the media and the Left were going after him (though somehow, they were less rabid than today), it’s likely that the Trump brand would have lost a lot of value for Democrats and Republicans alike.
This still stands to be the case once he leaves office after the 2024 election. He will go back to living a private life, maybe trying to continue running his business, but even if he retires, his successor will have to deal with the attacks from the Left and some on the Right.
So why? Why risk it all to enter the most polarizing business known to Man? For people like you and me.
He’s not doing this for himself, or his family, or the elites in Washington or elsewhere. Whenever someone like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Colin Kaepernick, etc. attacks Trump, I can’t help but to think these people simply do not get it.
Regardless of who wins presidential elections, people like the ones mentioned above will always be fine. Matter of fact, even people like Trump, regardless of who wins presidential elections, will always be fine.
As long as they don’t waste all their money and are smart with it, they don’t have to fear economic collapses (unless the government confiscates their money, and then, big government becomes a problem for them).
But most people are not in their position. Most people are severely affected by Presidential elections. Why? Because Democrats, particularly today, do not know how to handle and grow an economy. Obama certainly never tried to grow the economy. He HATES this country, why would he help grow its economic strength?
Democrats do not have good policy when it comes to economics. They only know how to spend money, not make it. They only know how to destroy wealth, not create it (unless it’s for themselves).
If Hillary had won, we would only have seen 4 or maybe 8 more years of stagnation. The unemployment rates would only go up and the regular Joe would be left to pay for the tab that Hillary and the Democrats would run up.
We had next to no voice in Washington. No one who would fight as fervently as Trump does. Sure, there were some conservatives like Ted Cruz, Trey Gowdy, Rand Paul, etc. But none of them have the same fighting spirit that Trump has. None of them would fight so fervently against the Left as Trump does. They would fight, no doubt, but they would not believe we are at war, as David said, against the Left.
It’s a war for the future of our country. Either we will go back to our capitalist roots that helped build this country into the superpower that it is, or fall to socialism and see the world’s best hope for liberty fade away into history.
Trump exposed this war. But at the end of the day, he is the last person on Earth who needed to do this.
It’s also why, whenever people like Jonah Goldberg or Bret Stephens, who wrote that he still wishes Hillary were President, attack Trump for something as asinine as supposedly bad character flaws, I can’t help but think they miss the bigger picture.
That war that I just mentioned is the bigger picture. And in war, we need a General. I believe Trump, for the time being, is that General. No, Trump isn’t perfect. His past is not the best. But if someone’s past were the deciding factor of who we support, no progress would be made.
I can’t imagine a single Jew looked at Moses and thought they should remain slaves in Egypt because Moses killed an Egyptian guard and was a fugitive.
The point isn’t that someone’s past ought to deter us from liking or following that person. The point is that, if that person has changed, and I mean truly changed, knows that what they did was wrong, tries not to do it again, and depends on the Lord Jesus Christ to give him strength every day, then that person is worthy of forgiveness.
I don’t like what Trump did in the past, with his affairs and cover ups. But if he has since asked for forgiveness from the Lord, who am I to not then forgive him for those things? Who am I to judge him for his past? Matter of fact, who is Jonah or any Leftist to judge him for his past?
We all are sinful. It’s in our nature. None of us can possibly claim to be perfect. The only perfect being to have walked this Earth was Jesus Christ, who lived without sin, but died for ours.
Focusing on Trump’s past is simply a childish reason to still be against him. And focusing on his supposed character flaws is asinine. Because Trump is, I believe, a pretty good person to go through the Hell he’s going through and going through it with a smile on his face, knowing he’s doing the right thing in the eyes of the Lord – doing the right thing for the benefit of the United States of America, the country he loves with all his heart.
Any NeverTrumper that attacks him for “bad character” simply has no argument. They are simply self-righteous and stubborn people who either fail to see the war against the Left or altogether betray the Right, as Bill Kristol has done.
I simply hope, knowing that these people are supposed conservatives, that they will come around to the side of rationality and logic, knowing that there are more important things at hand than bickering about the way Trump does things rather than what he actually does.

Earlier this week, President Trump held a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which members of the media and Democrat Party, for some reason, expected him to address the Russian meddling into U.S. elections following the indictment of 13 Russian entities by the Mueller investigation. (Now I understand the reason for bringing up these charges again: to cause the firestorm we’re seeing).
And because he did not address the issue, even going so far as to say he trusts Putin more than U.S. intelligence, he is being attacked and berated by people on both sides of the aisle.
The media is calling his meeting “disgraceful”, John Brennan is calling it “treason” and more than “high crimes and misdemeanors”, RINOs are joining the Left once again in attacking Trump and even conservative figures such as Ben Shapiro, Newt Gingrich, and others have said it was a disgraceful meeting.
However, I see it entirely differently. Trump did what was best for his presidency in the long-term, even if it draws criticism and ire in the short-term. To even admit or give credence to the Mueller investigation means to give an inch to the opposition. That’s something you never do.
If you give an inch to the Left, they will take a mile. If Trump mentions, at least on camera, to Putin that they meddled in the elections and will be punished for it, not only does that tick off Putin, which is not the aim of Trump, but it gives legitimacy to the insane witch-hunt.
But there’s one thing that really needs to be said, regardless of your political leanings: while there was Russian ENTITIES meddling in the election, we have not seen any sort of Trump-Russia collusion, we have not seen Russia actually hacking anything (in regards to the DNC servers, it was Podesta’s fault for being stupid enough to fall for one of the most obvious scams on the internet), and we have not seen any vote, popular or electoral, be affected by this meddling.
The outcome of the election was not affected by this case, as even Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has said TWICE now.
But Trump has absolutely no reason to back the same intelligence agencies that have worked and conspired to keep him out of office since his nomination, perhaps even longer. He has no reason to support traitors in the Deep State who literally make up dossiers of urinating hookers to destroy him.
In my mind, the only thing he did wrong was saying he trusts Putin more than U.S. Intelligence. While the Intelligence community is not to be trusted, Putin is a dictatorial gangster who has literally killed his opposition. He runs sham elections and strongly intends to take back the now-sovereign nations who were once part of the Soviet Union.
Putin would love nothing more than to see a destabilized America. The Deep State and the Left are in the same boat. The difference is that Putin goes as far as to kill and imprison his opposition on the regular. I’m not defending the Deep State by any means, but I would be naïve to say that Putin is any better.
That being said, I understand why Trump said what he said. Trump is a negotiator. A deal-maker. You don’t make mutually-beneficial deals by antagonizing the other party. Trump was not going to publicly berate and try to embarrass Putin by calling out meddling that had nothing to do with the Kremlin, as far as we know, and that ultimately did nothing to change the outcome of the election.
Trump is a man who tends to treat people the way he wants to be treated. Unless you publicly attack and berate him, Trump can be your absolute best and most loyal friend. Putin, so far, has treated Trump far, FAR better than people within OUR OWN GOVERNMENT have.
As for the people that attack Trump for this, and I mean people who call themselves conservatives, I cannot honestly understand their rhetoric here. Take, for example, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro. Even Ben has called this meeting “disgraceful”.
What he calls disgraceful was Trump calling out U.S. Intelligence’s hand in the deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations and saying he supported Putin’s claim that he did not meddle in the elections, saying: “I have confidence in both parties.”
Ben Shapiro responded by saying: “Both parties. One party being a murderous dictator, and the other the intelligence community that works for him.”
He is only half right in this instance. Yes, Putin is a murderous dictator, as I have said earlier, but the intelligence community does not work for Trump. It’s SUPPOSED to work for him, but it doesn’t. If it did, it would not be working 24/7 to try to undermine and destroy him. And let’s not forget that it’s not just his own intelligence community that he’s talking about here.
Do you know what Trump’s intelligence community is? Obama’s intelligence community. The same one that tried to keep Trump from becoming President. Again, why would he support a treasonous community like that?
But do you really want to know what is interesting about all of this. Aside from people like Ben Shapiro and other conservatives, it seems that the Democrat and Republican Parties, as well as the media seem to care more about what Trump did or did not say instead of what PETER STRZOK, LISA PAGE, AND THE FBI TRIED TO DO IN THE ELECTIONS!
People like Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake, John McCain, and other establishment RINOs are more outraged at this subjectively “bad” meeting than they were at Peter Strzok’s narcissistic cockiness in his House hearing. The guy threatened to “stop Trump”, refused to turn over crucial evidence for HIS OWN HEARING, worked in the Clinton email case and the Mueller investigation. But what did we hear from the GOP Establishment? Crickets.
And now they say Trump was the disgraceful one? Thanks for reminding me how strongly I heavily dislike these people.
Then again, it’s not really surprising. What was surprising was conservatives turning on Trump for this. No, I don’t like Putin either and no, I don’t consider him an ally to the U.S., but the U.S. Intelligence community has done EVERYTHING to make me dislike and distrust them. And Trump must think the same.
Supporting the Intelligence community over another country does not make you a patriot if that intelligence community is as rotten and corrupt as it is. Heck, supporting the government altogether, regardless of who is in power, does not make you a patriot. Supporting your country does. Supporting your troops does. Supporting your fellow Americans does.
This attack against Trump, at least from fellow conservatives, is simply asinine. Trump did what he thought was the best thing to do. Now, he has also backtracked on some things, particularly in regards to the intelligence agencies saying he has "full faith and support" in them and accepts their conclusions on Russian meddling in the election.
However, the point remains that no one can honestly blame him for being distrustful of the intelligence communities. Like I said, trusting Putin over them is questionable, but the intelligence community has lost many people's trust in the past few years. You can't trust either.
And let's not forget that the biggest part of all this comes from the DNC servers, which we do not know if Russians actually hacked them since the Democrat Party refused to turn the servers over to the FBI and the FBI was just fine with it.
But with what Trump did, all that would really come of this is people being ticked off at him, as we've seen. The Left is always ticked off at him, so who cares about that? But even the conservatives who are ticked off at him will eventually let go of that anger because they are not emotionally-disturbed liberal crybabies.
They know Trump has been a fantastic President so far and won’t push for impeachment if he ticks them off on occasion. But as for the Deep State and the media, they will always want to impeach Trump. The important thing to consider is that Republicans have to at least have some quasi-legitimate reason for it, which they so far do not have, even with today's backtracking of Trump's words.
Like I said, we have not seen evidence suggesting a single vote was affected in the election and that's all the meddling we have actually seen. Otherwise, the DNC server hack is merely speculation from the Left, as is collusion and everything else.
Overall, while his meeting with Putin was not something that I could say is groundbreaking or helps our relations with Russia all too much, I will say that it was not the apocalyptic and treasonous meeting people might say it is. Actually, I would say it was quite the opposite. I think it was a pretty good meeting. What with Putin and Trump both mocking the collusion narrative and Trump pointing back at the DNC’s servers, I would say it was not a bad meeting at all.
But even if the meeting was just fine, I would not be willing to throw Trump under the bus for it. And I do not think he has a darn thing to apologize for, even if he is backtracking on certain things.
The overall point is that the Intelligence community is not to be trusted in certain matters (not necessarily for absolutely everything). I don't blame Trump for wanting to backtrack on his trust of them. He should try to refocus the attention on the DNC server.. But the fact remains that the Intelligence community is rotten and corrupt and only marginally better than Putin when it comes to trustworthiness.

On Thursday, April 26, 2018, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve a bipartisan bill aimed at protecting special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by President Trump. But allow me to tell you why this is nothing more than a PR stunt and would actually be bad for the Left in the long run.
Now, it’s pretty obvious to tell why this is nothing more than a PR stunt. President Trump has not made any indication that he is even thinking, let alone planning, on firing Mueller. He himself has even said that if he was planning on firing Mueller, he would’ve done so last year. The biggest reason the Left is aiming to do this is simply to create a fictitious “victory” over Trump, and gloat over the fact that he would not be able to fire Mueller. But there are some problems with that.
First, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would not bring the bill on to the Senate floor, even if it were to be approved by the committee. Now, I don’t trust a darn thing this snake says. Frankly, I would expect him to either flip on this or act as though he’s caving and allow the full Senate to vote on the bill.
Second, even if the bill passes in the Senate, it still has to go through the House. The bill could be stopped right in its tracks by Republicans in the House of Representatives, but I think there are still too many Establishment Republicans even there to allow that. Regardless, there is still SOME chance it could be stopped there, however slim that chance may be.
Lastly, even if it were to pass both chambers of Congress, why would Trump ever sign it? He could easily veto the bill and send it back to Congress, where enough of a majority would have to be there to override his veto, which means getting a two-thirds vote in both chambers of Congress. I can hardly see that happening, particularly just a few months away from the midterms.
Trust me, as much as Establishment Republicans hate Trump, they still want to keep their jobs.
Now, if this whole thing is simply a self-sabotaging act on the part of the GOP to give Congress to the Democrats and ensure Trump’s impeachment, I don’t think this would work quite the way they would hope. As traitorous and as useless as they’ve been for most things (I’ll give them credit for the tax cuts), while they have not given anyone much incentive to vote Republican, the Democrats have given enough incentive for people to vote Republican.
Democrats were against the tax cuts that are healing the nation’s families. They are against protecting American citizens and are prioritizing illegals over us. They constantly show their true colors as Marxists who punish those who diverge from their line of thought. If Kanye had attacked Trump, do you think the Left would be attacking him? If Kyle Kashuv were part of the anti-gun club in Parkland, would one of his teachers have called him Hitler?
Time and time again, these people have shown their true colors as hateful and disgusting people who want to raise your taxes, keep African Americans and Hispanics unemployed (because a minority that doesn’t need the government should not be a possibility, in their minds), protect illegal killers and rapists while making you pay for it with the higher taxes they will bring back.
What reason does anyone really have to vote Democrat? They are not even hiding who they are anymore!
As scummy as the Republican Party has been so far, I’d much prefer their useless behinds over blood-thirsty, actually insane and enraged Leftists who will impeach Trump on the simple basis that they think he should’ve lost. No actual crime committed is necessary for them. The simple fact that Trump beat Hillary is enough for Democrats to look to impeach him. Why would Trump supporters allow them the opportunity to overturn everything good that’s been happening over these last 2 years?
I shall leave it at that, since that is a rhetorical question and there is another matter I wish to attend to regarding this vote to protect Mueller.
I said in the title that this is the last thing the Left wants in the long run. Sure, this is a good PR stunt, but that’s all it will give them: immediate gratification. On a practical level, they don’t want to keep Trump from firing Mueller.
Do you have any idea the firestorm that would occur if Trump fires Mueller? That would give the REPUBLICANS in Congress enough ammo to take him out! All they need is even the slightest evidence or “reasonable” suspicion of obstruction of justice, which the firing of Mueller would provide.
Trust me, many GOPers want Trump out too, but they will need something substantial. The only silver-lining of Republicans always “taking the high ground” is that they will not get rid of Trump for the same reasons the Democrats want him out. If they were to take him out only because they wanted him out, that would mark the definitive end of the Republican Party.
Now, you may be thinking: “So what? What is stopping the Republicans from destroying the GOP and simply switching to the Democrat Party and make this country a one-party system?” The simple fact that another Party will eventually rise up and contest the Democrat Party far more heavily than the current GOP.
This new Party would not have the same leadership as the current GOP. It would be led by actual Trump supporters and conservatives. And there goes the best chance the Establishment has at keeping control of the country. Because that Party would be INSANELY popular and would likely win many, MANY elections in the future, thus chipping away at the power the Establishment holds in Washington little by little. Perhaps not immediately, but certainly eventually. And such a strong opposition to the Establishment cannot be allowed to flourish, so they must keep the GOP afloat, at least for the time being.
So the Republicans will absolutely need a SUBSTANTIAL reason to impeach Trump. The firing of Robert Mueller could very well provide that substantial reason and simply accuse Trump of obstruction of justice. It wouldn’t be obstruction, but that’s irrelevant to these overlords. If they can even make it slightly seem like obstruction, that’s enough to keep some NeverTrumpers on their side. And it would be enough to at least keep their Party afloat, if severely weakened. Huge, wealthy donors like the Koch brothers would ensure the GOP’s survival, even if the base has jumped ship.
All things considered, with the fact that the investigation has turned up absolutely nothing on collusion, pressuring Trump into firing Mueller is their best shot at impeaching him. This investigation, on its own, will not lead to Trump’s impeachment. Unfortunately, it will hurt people like Michael Cohen, who’s only crime is being Trump’s lawyer, but it will not result in the impeachment of Donald Trump directly.
Now, if the Democrats were to get a super-majority, then the investigation could be the basis for their impeachment (at least officially), but the investigation itself will not get Trump impeached.
And that’s why I shake my head at the Left’s efforts here. Why would they go for something like this if it could backfire so easily against them in a practical sense? It would get their base to be happy for all of 5 minutes and would serve as a nice distraction from the seemingly-enlightened Kanye West and Chance the Rapper. But in their effort to impeach Trump, this would not help them if passed.
Their goal is to get a super-majority anyway. Why keep the Republicans from having an even slightly legitimate-looking reason to side with them prior to the midterms? If they can get Trump to fire Mueller and get the GOP to side with them in their impeachment efforts, that would at least somewhat preserve the fictitious image that there is bipartisanship and a rule of law in Washington. Such an image, people like you and me can see through. But there are plenty of people who still believe the law applies equally to everyone.
If that were actually the case, Bill and Hillary would’ve long been indicted and sent to jail, Comey would have been indicted, and Obama wouldn’t have even fully served his FIRST term, let alone have a second one.
Now, with all of that said, I have my doubts that this will even pass, let alone be signed into law. If their goal is to get Trump to veto it and accuse him of obstruction, big whoop. They’ve been trying this for A YEAR AND A HALF! Vetoing that bill would not be enough for Republicans to impeach him without utterly destroying the GOP, and thus, debilitating the Establishment in the future.
But let’s allow things to play out here. The Left may get their little emotional “victory”, but this will not amount to anything beneficial to them in terms of actually getting rid of Trump. Meanwhile, I’m still planning on going out to vote this November, all for Republican candidates regardless of whether they are Establishment or not.
My ultimate goal is to simply help Trump remain in office. Hopefully, you share a similar goal with me.

Usually, attacking an opponent’s family is uncalled for and distasteful (unless that family member is or was in politics themselves, such as Bill Clinton). It’s a tactic that the Left uses sometimes, and a tactic that failed Republican nominee Jeb Bush used recently.
According to the Daily Wire, the biggest failure of the Bush family (and that’s saying something) had a talk “sponsored by The William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale University,” where he said that “after the 2016 Republican primary in South Carolina, he returned home to children who ‘actually love me,’” thus attacking both Trump and his family.
His anger after the 2016 primary loss is clear and present. Much like Hillary Clinton, Jeb’s defeat has severely affected him, given that during that appearance at Yale University, he also said: “I’m not going to talk about the 2016 election. I’m still in therapy.”
I don’t know if he meant that as a joke or not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he really was in therapy. Particularly given the response from Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter: “Jeb! I love everything about my father. I love that he’s a fighter, I love that he has guts, I love that he’s President (all those things you’re not). Also love that he learned enough about politics in a few weeks to dismantle you piece by piece despite it being your life’s work.”
Here’s some advice for Jeb Bush: apply cold water to the burned area.
All of those things are hard truths about Jeb Bush. He’s not a fighter (something that I think even he knows). That much was evident during the campaign. And that much would’ve been expected had he become the Republican candidate. He wouldn’t have fought hard against Hillary. Much like Romney didn’t fight hard against Obama. Same goes for McCain (though I doubt he would’ve won against him even if he had actually fought hard).
The Establishment’s darlings don’t ever fight hard. They are more than happy with being the gracious losers of elections. They don’t fight the fire with fire. They fight fire with ice. And they’re more than happy to keep things that way. It’s part of the reason they hate Trump as much as they do.
He also is lacking in guts. Part of fighting hard is having the willingness and the guts to do it. While Bush’s pride may make him believe that he does have guts, reality is far different from his imagination.
The third truth is one that surely stings more than the previous two: Trump is President and he’s not. Now, without the guts and willingness to fight hard against Hillary, he likely was not going to be President anyway. But what stings him more than not being President is seeing that the man he hates most in this world is sitting at the Oval Office and running this country.
Like I said, the Establishment is more than happy with being gracious losers. Not being President is not what stings Jeb more. It’s the fact that Trump actually IS President that angers him.
But the final comment, and hard truth, in Trump Jr’s. tweet is what surely destroys Jeb the most. It’s not that he is not a fighter that hurts him. He knows he’s not a fighter. It’s not that he’s gutless. It’s not even that he’s not President and Trump is that hurts him the most. It’s the fact that, despite being a career politician, being in the Establishment, being a member of the Bush family and having been a governor of one of the largest states in the country (Florida), he was soundly beaten by someone who’s never held political office before.
He was beaten by someone who’s only had to play politics in order to gain favor in building projects. He was beaten by someone who wasn’t simply outside of the Establishment, but was outside of the career of POLITICS altogether.
And all of this happened, resulting in an embarrassing loss for Jeb Bush. Donald Trump ended the primaries with 1,457 pledged delegates. Jeb ended the primaries with 4.
Jeb was nowhere near among the biggest contenders for the nomination. Even his fellow Establishment candidates, Marco Rubio and John Kasich did considerably better, with 166 and 160 delegates respectively.
Aside from being a massive defeat for the Republican Establishment, this was an even bigger defeat for Jeb, someone who was born into the right family, ran at the right time when America was getting sick of Obama’s policies and the likelihood of a Republican winning was a tad higher than the previous two elections, and had made a career within the realm of politics to understand it and experience it up close.
He had a lot of things going for himself and ended up being utterly spanked by someone who had spent less than a year in politics by the time he announced his withdrawal from the primaries.
His anger is clear as well as the reason for it. At least he’s likely doing considerably better than Hillary Clinton. If there’s any former candidate from the 2016 election that needs therapy it would be her.

Day in and day out our President is fighting the deep state – John McCain opposing the Obamacare repeal which he himself ran on, judges blocking Trump’s travel ban, Special counsel Muller ‘investigating’ the Russia hoax. The GOP establishment and the democrats are all embarked on a massive effort to destroy Trump, his voters, his agenda and to make sure no other outsider in the future even dreams about messing with the swamp.
What a wonderful and different story this would be if Republicans in Congress sided with the people who voted Trump into office. They don’t seem to understand their base is no longer their base – it’s Trumps base. My colleague Freddie Drake pointed this out in his article ‘Turns Out That Dems Are Divided On Immigration Too’.
The GOP refused to embrace the Tea Party – the very first attempt to get the party back on the path of conservatism. And the GOP now refuses to embrace Trump.
We, conservatives, have seen enough.
We know better now – we now that the swamp is so deep that it’s almost an impossibility to influence on it to course correct to preserve our Constitution and freedoms.
Abraham Lincoln said it correctly: ‘America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves’.
And President Lincoln was right – we’re witnessing the destruction of America as we know it. Not just by the Left, which most people will recognize as the enemy of freedom. This kind of evil is easy to identify.
But America is a target for the GOP establishment as well – the only GOP that matters. Perhaps it’s time to just call it the swamp? There is no other GOP than the establishment. But this kind of evil is much more difficult to identify – behind Paul Ryan’s goofy smile is the devil himself guiding Ryan’s steps to stop Trump. Behind Jeff Sessions’ angel face is the devil himself guiding his steps in recusing himself from enforcing the law on Hillary, Comey, Susan Rice and all the rest.
This kind of evil is much more difficult to identify because they’re wolves in sheep’s clothing. The Bible warns us about them in Matthew 7:15: ‘Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves’.
How can we, the people, take our country back among these wolves who control the government?
It’s widely known that Trump’s base is not just conservatives (the old Republican base) but also Democrats. The white working class in America, once the Democrat Party’s darling, has been neglected by the democrats for too long. The dems stand for nothing nowadays – other than transgender rights. They jumped on the ‘Sex Life Matters’ wagon in the hopes that they would turn the discussion of this private matter into a civil rights discussion – something very few everyday Americans would agree with.
So Trump’s base is, in fact, larger than just Republicans.
Trump is a practical person who cares about RESULTS. He’s not an ideologue – he gave up his business and his peace to try to do something good for the American people. And the white working class democrats have noticed. The vast majority of the people are concerned about jobs, security and general well-being. They’re not too worried about transgender rights – there is no such thing as a transgender right issue. Transgenders have the same rights as the rest of us. But my main point is: Trump’s not an ideologue and neither is his base. We just want jobs, security and general well-being.
If Trump forms his own party, smart GOP and democrat leaders will follow him – and the rest of us would as well. After all, we’re Trump’s first supporters.
It wouldn’t be too crazy and it would succeed. There’s an example in Argentina – the current President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, is, like Trump, a businessman who formed his own party. Much like with the Democrat and Republican parties today, the two main parties in Argentina were also struggling to define themselves – and to hold on to their power. But, much like the DNC and GOP in America today, neither party cared in the least about the Argentine people. So Argentines grew tired and when Mauricio Macri ran for office, they supported him. Granted, it took him several iterations before he became president – but he is the first independent Argentine President to beat the two dominant parties since 1916!
Government exists for one reason only: to protect the life and property of its people.
When government moves away from those reasons and engages in self-preservation and power expansion, it becomes a tyranny – like the one we’re witnessing. A place where the Clintons can do whatever they want without facing legal consequences and the FBI can spy on you and drag you from your bedroom like they did Manafort. They don’t need a crime to investigate you – they can investigate you and then find or, better yet, make up a crime. Like with the phony Russian dossier, which the deep state created to start the Russia hoax. Like in a banana republic...
Trump owns the ENTIRE Republican base, and SOME of the Democrat base. I don’t know if he’s thinking about forming his own party. If he does, the American people will have one last chance to take our country back.

Recently, Congress passed a spending bill that would allow for sanctuary cities, Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare to remain funded and untouched, leaving absolutely no money to pay for Trump’s border wall. As you can imagine, this severely displeases many conservatives, and likely, the President himself.
But you have to ask yourself, “Did we (conservatives) gain anything at all from passing this bill?” The answer is: ABSOLUTELY NOT! All Republicans got was avoiding a government shutdown. The elected Republicans in Congress only cared about avoiding a shutdown. “But why?” you may ask. “Why would Republicans pass this bill that would get absolutely nothing done when all that’s at stake is a government shutdown?” Well, here’s the thing: Republicans in Congress are scared little girls when it comes to government shutdowns. And the reason is because shutdowns always get blamed on Republicans.
The Fake News media always blames government shutdowns on Republicans. Although, since the media blames absolutely everything bad that happens in the world, even natural disasters (mostly ones that can be blamed on Climate Change), on Republicans, you’d think that Republicans would’ve gotten used to being the scapegoats.
Now, there’s a larger underlying issue here: the Republicans in Congress are PART OF THE SWAMP. There’s a reason Trump wants to ‘drain the swamp’. ‘Draining the swamp’ doesn’t just refer to defeating and neutralizing Democrats. Republicans are part of the swamp too. These are the Republican Establishment types that make up part of the swamp. These are the people that are Democrats in Republican’s clothing. These Republicans couldn’t care less if there’s a wall at the Mexican-American border. In fact, they’d rather not see a wall there. Because, like Democrats, they too want illegal immigrants to come in and vote for them.
Jeb Bush, back when he was a candidate for the Republican nomination, said that “There should be a path to earn legal status for those (illegal immigrants) who are here…” While he said he didn’t want amnesty, like Democrats do, he did want illegals to have a path to citizenship. Basically eventually rewarding those breaking the law to affect how this country is run, which is exactly what Democrats want in the first place.
Trump needs to learn that Republicans that are part of the Establishment will never be on his side. Republicans like Lindsey Graham and John McCain. Those are the kind of Republicans that are hidden in Congress. Some of them may not be as outspoken about opposing the President as Graham or McCain, but their votes clearly speak for them.
The Devil can take any shape and form. And he can even look like someone who would supposedly be your friend. He can be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, or a Democrat in a Republican’s seat, in this case. Both Democrats and Republicans are a part of the Establishment. The Establishment doesn’t want to see the things Trump wants to be done in the country. There’s a status quo that the Establishment wants to keep and will go to any advance to make sure the status quo remains in place.
These are the evils that plague the country. Abraham Lincoln once said that “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” If America is destroyed, it won’t be because North Korea got lucky and successfully launched a missile sent to Washington D.C. It won’t come from a war against Russia or China. It won’t be from a WWIII. If America is destroyed, it will be because the people working on the inside, those who were elected to run this country successfully and to make sure it will thrive, failed to do their jobs, or simply didn’t want to do what they were elected to do.
Republicans were elected to Congress in 2010 and 2014 to stop Obama, and they failed to do that.
Republicans were elected to Congress in 2016 to help Trump, and so far, have failed to do that as well.
I don’t know what God’s plan for America is, but I’m sure He’s not too happy with the fact that the person He appointed to run this country is practically alone in the government. But like it’s been said in a previous article: the Deep State is no match for God. And if God be for Trump, whosoever dares be against him is against the Lord as well.
