MUTINY TO PROTECT THE BOUNTY: 22 "BANKRUPT" MILLIONAIRES "REVOLT"
Donald Trump leads the polls nationally and in most states in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. There are understandable reasons for his eminence, and he has shown impressive gut-level skill as a campaigner. But he is not deserving of conservative support in the caucuses and primaries. Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones.
Trump’s political opinions have wobbled all over the lot. The real-estate mogul and reality-TV star has supported abortion, gun control, single-payer health care à la Canada, and punitive taxes on the wealthy. (He and Bernie Sanders have shared more than funky outer-borough accents.) Since declaring his candidacy he has taken a more conservative line, yet there are great gaping holes in it.
His signature issue is concern over immigration — from Latin America but also, after Paris and San Bernardino, from the Middle East. He has exploited the yawning gap between elite opinion in both parties and the public on the issue, and feasted on the discontent over a government that can’t be bothered to enforce its own laws no matter how many times it says it will (President Obama has dispensed even with the pretense). But even on immigration, Trump often makes no sense and can’t be relied upon. A few short years ago, he was criticizing Mitt Romney for having the temerity to propose “self-deportation,” or the entirely reasonable policy of reducing the illegal population through attrition while enforcing the nation’s laws. Now, Trump is a hawk’s hawk.
He pledges to build a wall along the southern border and to make Mexico pay for it. We need more fencing at the border, but the promise to make Mexico pay for it is silly bluster. Trump says he will put a big door in his beautiful wall, an implicit endorsement of the dismayingly conventional view that current levels of legal immigration are fine. Trump seems unaware that a major contribution of his own written immigration plan is to question the economic impact of legal immigration and to call for reform of the H-1B–visa program. Indeed, in one Republican debate he clearly had no idea what’s in that plan and advocated increased legal immigration, which is completely at odds with it. These are not the meanderings of someone with well-informed, deeply held views on the topic.
As for illegal immigration, Trump pledges to deport the 11 million illegals here in the United States, a herculean administrative and logistical task beyond the capacity of the federal government. Trump piles on the absurdity by saying he would re-import many of the illegal immigrants once they had been deported, which makes his policy a poorly disguised amnesty (and a version of a similarly idiotic idea that appeared in one of Washington’s periodic “comprehensive” immigration reforms). This plan wouldn’t survive its first contact with reality.
THE SQUALOR OF ARROGANCE of Mark Levin and his cadre of Status Quo Media millionaires, is breathtaking.
Trump has lost ~$300-$500M in lost hard revenues, lost contracts and lost brand goodwill, over the past 7 months, fighting against the Establishment and the Establishment Media, to try to save America.
Trump alone has reversed the election playing field, from complete Democrat Media control of America's narrative, to Trump controlling every narrative, over the past 7 months, on each of dozens of far more vicious media attacks (FOX News War on Trump, wholesale defamation, nightly network news opening story attacks, NRO baseless defamation) than necessary to have ended ANY other campaign, and that did destroy the Romney campaign (Todd Akins, binder of women, 47%)
For Levin and his mob of Status Quo Media millionaire hijackers to now try to appropriate the media sea change Trump alone created, insanely thinking that the Canadian funeral director could assume Trump's media command, after 3 years of Cast Away Cruz on Pariah Island, is pristine delusion.
No one with two brain cells to rub together gives a flying fig about what Trump says to get elected in this, the most fraudulent GOP/FOX News/Rove/Bush/Limbaugh/Levin Rigged SPLIT THE VOTE AMONG 16 GOP Establishment Weasels primary ever devised.
Bravo Trump for doing whatever it takes to beat the Establishment and their rabid Establishment Media jackals.
"Whatever", beats another 700,000 civil war deaths to restore the Constitution.
Be certain: Trump is all about the Constitution.
Nothing he has proposed is anything but law and order, Constitutional law and order.
Ethanol, lol. Cruzbot Status Quo Media millionaire Levin, is willing to throw America to the invading democrat hordes because Trump wants to win Iowa, to save America.
Trump/Wall/SelfDeport/Deport, ASAP America, or die.
