It's been a busy few days, reader(s). However, there is no shortage of things to write about in the stupidity "space". I do want to comment on the now out-of-date story about that Republic Airlines flight (dba United Express) fiasco, which represents a whole world of stupidity on the part of just about everyone directly involved. More coming on Ross Perot as a precursor to Donald Trump, Ronald Reagan and the 1986 illegal alien amnesty, and some humor, just to name a few things.
Anyhow, to complete the elaboration on the post regarding Trump's disappointing breach-of-contract with us, his voters, I will address point 3. Point 3 was the question of how long Trump's supporters, the regular patriotic Americans and nobody else (besides Ann Coulter), will support him. Trump had campaigned on "America First", and part of that was the pretty obvious point that actually defending the country is more important than spending money we don't have to keep meddling in affairs of the rest of the world. "Meddling" is too weak a word, anyway; it's bombing, strafing, droning, and whatever. What's been happening wrt Syria, N. Korea is the same warmongering that we would have expected from a Hildabeast administration and basically all others since Ronald Reagan (and one could arguably include him too).
Per this post on the 2nd issue raised here, Trump had better not flake out on the immigration promises or he will lose all of us supporters right away. We've been through this crap with both George Bushes. I don't mean specifically believing they would uphold our national sovereignty, just that they'd act like conservatives. They didn't, and we were fooled. We didn't want another Bush (¡Jeb!), or any of the rest of the establishment GOP this time for that reason. Patriotic American voters have FINALLY learned their lesson on this.
Ann Coulter here, as usual lately, said this all best in "We Want The “President Of America” Back—Not “The President Of The World". Here's a bit of her writing:
While most of the left wailed about the return of Nazi Germany under Trump, savvier liberals saw his vulnerability: flattery. All we have to do is praise him! You’ll be shocked at how easy it is.
And, boy, did they lay it on thick with the Syrian misadventure. No sucker’s bait was left on the floor. Cable news hosts gushed, “Trump became president of the United States tonight!” On MSNBC, Brian Williams called the bombing “beautiful” three times in less than a minute. Sen. Lindsey Graham (one of the “women of the Senate,” according to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg) compared Trump to Reagan. The New York Times headlined an article, “On Syria Attack, Trump’s Heart Came First.”
My nightmare scenario: Trump and Jared watching TV together and high-fiving: DID YOU SEE THE NEWS! THEY LOVE YOU! All Trump had to do was pointlessly bomb another country, and it was as if a genie had granted his every wish.
Looking for some upside to this fiasco, desperate Trump supporters bleated that bombing Assad had sent a message to North Korea. Yes, the message is: The Washington establishment is determined to manipulate the president into launching counterproductive military strikes. Our enemies—both foreign and domestic—would be delighted to see our broken country further weaken itself with pointless wars.
We've got to support this guy on what we want most, enforcement of our sovereignty. If that doesn't happen more seriously soon, we just can't treat this guy like our leader - there are plenty of leaders out there. So, the answer is, as soon as most of us were to realize that this guy is just playing to the crowd on border control and legal immigration, while really trying to please the Washington establishment, he will be dead to us. I am hopeful he's just been conned on the foreign policy stuff.
We can still take some time to be thankful this Easter Sunday that we don't have the Hildabeast in front of us nightly on TV (if you still have one of those - shoot it center-screen).
HAPPY EASTER, READERS! (posting will resume on Monday with extreme prejudice)
