Has he been reading my blog?

Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.) says that Trump is as “bozo.” Has he been reading by blog? I wrote on January 21, 2014 that Trump shouldn’t run because he’s a “bozo.”

I may have been wrong about that; not the part about him being a bozo, but the part where I said he shouldn’t run. I now think that a bozo like Trump is exactly what the country needs. People say there was no substance in the debate, but Trump’s answer about how he uses money to buy politicians because that’s how the game is played and everyone does it, that was one of the most significant statements in the history of debates.

  1. It’s like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington– if Jimmy Stewart was a douchebag billionaire.

  2. “…Trumps answer about how he uses money to buy politicians because that’s how the game is played and everyone does it, that was one of the most significant statements in the history of debates.”

    Notice that no one, during the debate or afterwards, has challenged that.

    • Exactly. The left ate it up. Look at a few of the prominent left wing blogs and e-publications. “Hey look! It’s true! Rich people own the political process and the state! We’ve been saying it all along! A rich guy finally admitted it!”

      As much as I see “He’s not presidential” in the traditionalist diplomatic technical form of the expression, who cares? Trump is correct. This society needs a wake-up call more than someone who was groomed to run a large social institution. This society needs 4 years of real talk, a cultural intervention. We can go back to the technical process after the intervention is over. Proles and their overseers are deeply invested in a lot of bullshit even though a lot of that bullshit hurts proles as much as it helps them. Everyone knows it’s going on, but no one ever brings it up when an authority is present. Now the privileged are scared that Trump said what he said because it’s unheard of that something like that was actually uttered in public during a broadcasting event. What’s more important was who said it, a member of their own class!

      • What worthwhile real talk? All I see is some unsubstantiated claims about hispanic crime that he hasn’t repeated and bunch of oafishness. I agree there are taboos in our political culture that desperately need to be broken but Trump isn’t breaking those he’s just acting like an asshole.

      • @Lloyd

        Illegals are overrepresented in prisons. If 2% of US residents are illegal aliens and 5% of prison inmates are illegals, then, heck yeah, there is a problem with crime coming from them. Without them, crime would be at least 5% lower. 100% of crimes from illegals is preventable by just keeping them out of the country. Other crime might also be reduced because of their absence because of a lower level of general degeneracy they bring in with them.

        not too late

      • First of all we don’t know how many illegal immigrants there are, secondly you have to distinguish between immigration crimes and non-immigration crimes (it’s obvious that all illegal immigrants are criminals when it comes to immigration crimes), third you have to correct for age (Hispanics and illegal immigrants are very young groups and younger members of all groups commit more crime), and fourth you have to correct for the fact that many non imprisoned illegal immigrants have left the country while those who are imprisoned can’t leave, and I’m sure there are many other things you have to adjust for.

        100% of crimes from illegals is preventable by just keeping them out of the country

        By that logic we should get rid of all crime by getting rid of all the people.

        I am super opposed to Hispanic immigration, i believe we should kick out all the ones we can can kick out and pay the rest substantial sums to renounce their citizenship and they may indeed have higher crime rates but the evidence I’ve seen isn’t very convincing

  3. More proof Scott Walker’s the man. He went on Hannity and clearly stated he opposes any amnesty *and* wants a legal migration reduction. http://www.vdare.com/posts/walker-on-hannity-im-fairly-unique-on-reduction-of-legal-immigration

      Walker was leading Jeb in many polls until Trump appeared. If Trump does fade, Walker stands to benefit.

      • I would agree. In a post-Trump primary race, Walker is the only candidate stating opposition to amnesty and reduction in legal immigration.

  4. Matt Yglesias said Trump had the best policy answer when he talked about single-payer in Canada, and explained why the US couldn’t switch because of path dependency (US system built around private insurance tied to work).

    • Trump should’ve used Israel’s system as an example of socialized medicine that works – that would’ve really warped Republican minds. They wouldn’t know what to say or think.

      • It works good enough until you need a serious procedure performed and you go on a waiting list. But it’s better than nothing and I would rather have it than what we’ve got now.

        It works the best for wounded terrorists and ISIS fighters straggling across the Syrian border. The bastard get free medical treatment instead of being shot. They call it ‘humanitarian’.

      • Who’s talking about the train? Ride a bike, obviously, so that you work up an appetite. The moral of the story is that Yossi and Trump are similar personality types. If you want meat go to ‘Big Fleishig’ on 16 and 58th, or ‘VIP Grill’ on 13th and 37th St. I get a feeling that you are not a serious customer, Lion.

        Incidentally, I was thinking why is still life always fruit or flowers, can it be an animal or no? I think I saw fish. Do they have to be dead? What’s the rules?

    • Nothing can faze Trump supporters. Trump is cute in his viciousness. Love him.

      Look there was this Jewish guy who’s cafe ‘Yossi’s’ was shut down by the health department. A TV crew came to interview him about the issue. They asked him to comment on the 400 mice or rat droppings found in his Hallah. So the guy turns to the camera and says: ‘Don’t listen to them. They don’t no nothing. I have the best coffee, the best Danish, the best sandwich and the best Hallah in town. I’m gonna reopen in couple of weeks so come and see for yourself and I’m gonna have a special discount for anyone who mentions this program. Come and see for yourself and don’t listen to them. They don’t know nothing!’ And guess what? He actuality does have the best coffee and the best avocado sandwich in town! I buy it every day. You can check it out at New Utrecht and 53rd St. Have it on a toasted sesame roll and take cream with your coffe. Simply the best!

      • Yeah, he’s got three more branches, but this is the only one that has cream for coffee. The Orthodox Jews are not big tipers, but the steady customers tip a lot. Us, working guys, appreciate what we get. I get practically a whole avocado in my sandwich. $4.50 is cheap and I don’t mind leaving a $1.00 tip. The owner is never there. A smart guy.

  8. “Xavier Becerra” — the name says BOZO to me.

    “From California” — BOZO.

    Democrat — BOZO.

    “Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus” — BOZO.

    Only briefly did he ever have a quasi-real job, and the rest of his life he has been spending Other People’s Money — BOZO.

    Hell, I would be suspicious of anyone this clown didn’t hate.

    And oh by the way, I really hope he reads this!

    The game’s afoot truly if Trump admits to having transferred value from the Lion for fuck’all knows how many millions in illegal real estate, casino, and hotel proceeds.

  10. It has been repeatedly shown that politics is a matter of genetically driven emotion; debate has no real effect. Trump is tapping into a suppressed rage in the public. The socalled real Rebulicans have to figure out how to deal with and moderate that rage. If they don’t, the Republican Party will die.

    Over on the left, Black and White Democrats are shouting each other down at the Sanders gatherings. It looks like the race war in the streets is coming to the Party itself.

      • Trump has a lot more confidence and presence. He appeals to their Big Man preferences.

        Sanders, on the other hand, is a soft spoken nerdy old man. Blacks dont respect nerds.

    • The Republican party as currently constituted deserves to die, because it does not respond to the clearly stated desires of a very large number of Republican voters. That is the source of the rage — the GOP exists for the benefit of the elite class, and the middle class and the proles get the shaft. At present there is exactly NO reason for the average Republican to care whether or not the GOP wins, especially at the national level, because the GOP leadership despises the average Republican every bit as much as the Democrat leader despises the average Republican.
