It’s pretty hard to write …

Posted on January 22, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (4)


It’s pretty hard to write about anything else when Trump and Hillary are making this perhaps the most remarkable presidential campaign in history. I won’t make any bold predictions at this point, but, based on events of the past week or so, here’s what I believe is most likely to happen with these two polar opposites.

I assume that anyone who would take the trouble to read this post is already convinced that Hillary is guilty of multiple — probably scores — of felonies, so I won’t bore you with what you already know.

But what I will tell you is that I think the odds are that Hillary is either going to be indicted or there will be mass hysteria coming out of the FBI — hysteria that I believe would blow this whole mess into a scandal that would make Watergate look like a speeding ticket.

Either way, I believe the odds are strong that panicked Democratic chieftains, knowing Hillary cannot win, will push Biden, Kerry, or Gore into the race. Heck, at some point in time they’ll be so panicked that they might even ask Anthony Weiner to run. Don’t laugh — he knows how to get attention.

So forget Hillary. She was dead meat years ago, even though few people understood it — and millions still don’t. What a blow this is going to be to her army of lackey followers.

As to Trump, I guess it’s possible he could lose Iowa and, ultimately, the nomination. But I think it’s much more likely he’ll win Iowa by an unexpectedly huge margin and sweep through the remaining states with landslide victories. I think something of historic proportions is happening here that most people still don’t get.

Barry Goldwater (who, in my opinion, would have been the greatest president of all time) was the right man at the wrong time. Ronald Reagan was the right man at the right time. But Donald Trump appears to be the PERFECT man at the PERFECT time. That’s a potent combination.

So forget conservatism. Forget libertarianism. Forget liberalism. They don’t matter. Everything is out the window on this one. The designed destruction of America has awakened voters, and they’re angry as hell. Which is why they’re attracted to an angry guy with a proven track record of getting his way by whatever means necessary.

Kind of reminds me of the words of Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor: “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.” Sounds like 2016 to me.

    "So forget conservatism. Forget libertarianism. Forget liberalism. They don’t matter. Everything is out the window on this one."

    Yes, I agree. Trump has a lot of crossover support. Even people who don't like or completely trust him shall support him. Even long-term enemies are forming alliances in support of Trump. No place is this more apparent than when Alex Jones recently interviewed Louis Farrakhan. When both of those men found common ground in important issues, including Trump, you know something is different this time. This time is historic. This time shall be one for the books. People will be talking about the upcoming election long after it's over.

    Even I find myself forming alliances for the sake of self-preservation. I'm tolerating people's ignorance and seeking common ground in support of DT.

    It reminds me of the stories that my native American step-grandfather told me about how some of his people allied with the British and other members of his tribe with the Founders. Indeed, there are times in history that race, culture, religion and ideology are left behind as people unite in pursuit of a common goal. This is one of those times.

    Personally, Trump is my middle-finger vote against the Washington establishment. Moreover, I think he can be trusted with the nukes. I'm not so sure Goldwater could have been. Maybe Goldwater was smeared, but many good men didn't trust him to not move too soon and recklessly launch a nuclear attack.

      Not just nuclear. I remember writing home to my parents begging them not to vote for Goldwater in '64, because the Army Times seemed concerned that he would start a war with China. I was stationed at a key communications facility less than 5 miles from the DMZ, and we knew the North Korean puppets of China had our strategic hilltop site already zeroed in with artillery.

      It took reading his campaign book, "None Dare Call It Treason," soon after my discharge in '66, to square me away in time to vote for Reagan for Governor of California. :)

      I am still cheering Trump on, and becoming ever more disgusted by the GOP establishment, including all those so-called conservatives writing for "National Review"; but you have not yet convinced me to actually vote for him or anyone else.

      Have you seen the YouTube video of him praying with all those evangelical shamans? I get the necessity of pandering to the Piously Correct crowd for their votes; but that he didn't deck that Oral Roberts wannabe jerk, for sticking his clawed hand on his face, or at least push it away, was inexcusable. How anyone could want the job bad enough to put up with such nonsense, is beyond my ken. ◄Dave►

    In my opinion Goldwater would have been the best president since Thomas Jefferson, except his trigger finger was a bit too itchy. Russia was doomed to collapse on its own. War was totally unnecessary. A massive military buildup for the sole purpose of defense was all that was needed, i.e., MAD.

    This is still true, today. War is unnecessary; however, America must arm itself to the teeth. Why? Just to let the other world powers know that nobody wins a nuclear war with America.

    I believe that Trump would not pursue the Wolfowitz Doctrine. Trump would rather negotiate with the Russians and Chinese like Reagan and Nixon. And that's why Trump has my vote. For me, it's about self-preservation for my family. I want my grandchildren to have a future. And that's not possible if a warmonger with an itchy trigger finger gets elected.

    I mostly agree with you. Yes, Trump is going to do some very offensive things, but I also agree with RJR: " Donald Trump appears to be the PERFECT man at the PERFECT time." That's not to say Trump is perfect, but he is the perfect man to run the United States of Empire.

    Have a great weekend.

    It’s pretty hard to write anything, I agree with you. That is why writing resource and services for students becomes such popular now. If you just see review you will understand what I am saying. It is really useful: you can just order an article or thesis paper here and make your time for other things. The best decision and for students now and for people on the go. The faster way to meet your deadlines everywhere.
