Reminder of why you should support Trump

with 62 comments

Only Trump could have beaten Hillary (there’s no way Jeb Bush would have won Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin), and because Trump won something is finally being done about immigration, and we have a conservative being appointed to the Supreme Court instead of an extreme liberal.

  1. Trump is trying to save America and Western Civilization along with it. I am not exagerrating. Did you see the Joe Rogan podcast with Alex Jones?

  2. I supported him from day one.

    I don’t know about any of this god emperor or master persuader stuff but he was so much better than any of the other Republican candidates that it really was no contest.

    • I didn’t, and I admit I was wrong. I didn’t think he could win either the nomination or the presidency.

      He did a lot of good in raising the immigration issue and being willing to put America first. I have my severe reservations about the guy but I think he is what we need in this time period.

  3. Don’t forget trade.

    And waking up a lot of slumbering, mostly non-voting or largely apolitical but inherently conservative Americans who thought this was still their country.

    And preventing the full merger of the mainstream media with the Democratic party.

    And rolling back all of Obama’s social engineering legislation from his 2nd term. Hillary would’ve continued that work and start getting more stringent about tying state/local compliance to federal funding.

    • I agree, but I’d say ‘exposing’ the full merger of the MSM with the Dems. It’s pretty obvious they’re on one side now.

      And we finally have a chance of rolling back this college campus garbage.

      • Based on number of hours watched per week, people watch youtube more than television.

        People are tuning out the mainstream media and tuning in to others.

        no too late

      • Fox News is the mainstream media in every sense. Corporate owned, watched by millions, and usually the default TV channel in most bars, auto repair shops, laundromats, military bases, etc. Is Fox owned by the Democratic Party? It is interesting that proles have such low self-esteem that the New York Times & Washington Post, consumed by hundreds of thousands, mostly in a limited geographical area, are “MSM” whereas Fox News is not.

        Really most Americans get their news from local news channels, and those seem to vary by region. More conservative in Red states, more liberal in Blue, but generally pretty vacuous everywhere.

      • Broadcast network news viewer numbers dwarf those of any cable network, including FNC, I’m not sure I disagree with you that FNC is mainstream media, but the argument that it’s not isn’t entirely without merit.

      • Based on what?

        The polls are only wrong about Trump but right about everything else?
        The election proved that Hillary’s love was pretty shallow but the hate for her was pretty strong.

      • Anonymous bro – you are right. Not a single one of the 17 Republican declared candidates would have won (I never had a second doubt , from the first day, that Trump was the best of the bunch – I agreed with Cruz on almost everything and Santorum as well, but neither one of them were tough guys. And, at that level, if you are not a tough guy, you are a taker, not a giver. And takers do not deserve our votes). Of the guys who did not run, maybe Curt Schilling, Jeff Sessions, or Tommy Franks could have won. Well and maybe Ann Coulter, but she was never a starter, and she is nowhere near as bright as Trump. The funny thing is that Hillary and her gang could have released the Billy Bush tapes at a time when that would have given the nomination to Bush (early on) or Cruz or Rubio (later on) – and if they did, Trump could not have continued winning primaries, and Hillary would have eventually beaten Bush or Cruz or Rubio in the key states – but the Hillary strategists hilariously believed that Trump would be a push-over. Hilariousness ensued, as we now know.

      • Also, for those who quote the better vote number of Republican Congressional candidates , compared to Trump – none of them were fighting against billions of dollars of Democratic money and the entire established MSM. Think of it this way – the veterans who fought in the Aleutians in WWII were fantastically brave but they did not quite face the same opposition as the veterans who fought at Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. If you don’t know what I am talking about look up a few facts about the Pacific Theater.

  7. There is only one reason why any of your readers would support Trump, and it’s close to nil, when it comes to fulfillment.

    Most of Middle America will become the next Manhattan or Brooklyn, and cities like NYC and San Francisco will set to lose their residents, because they can now live for dirt cheap with all the amenities of these cities.

    I agree that Middle America has bad food, especially when it comes to baked goods.

    • Indeed you can’t get a decent croissant outside of Manhattan.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      March 5, 2017 at 5:05 pm

      • Sure, like nobody knows how to bake in the US.

        I have had good croissants.

        I am sure there are great pies and cakes all over the US.

        Although a good baguette is hard to find. Most in the US aren’t that good.

        One thing I found in the UK, France and Switzerland are good baguettes. They have small ones you can buy individually. You can eat them by themselves or buy some cheese or meat for them.

        You can also buy pre-made baguette sandwiches in the 3 countries above, which I like.

        I didn’t really find good bread in Italy. The bakeries I went to were mediocre for bread. Maybe I just missed the good ones.

      • I find plenty of excellent whole wheat bread in America. I dunno about cakes and croissants, I don’t eat those. This is just so stupid! America has the best of everything. Why is it that I can find it, but you guys can’t? I think it’s the problem with you, not with America.

    • What, immigration? Look, I think it’s been good for the country at various times in the past. This isn’t one of those times. We’ve got a surplus of labor, jobs are disappearing due to automation, and while I don’t know if they’re rapists, Mexico is definitely not sending their best.

      • Fun fact from a recent Slate Star Codex post: a mainstream economist calculated that for every robot installed, seven jobs are permanently eliminated, net.

        Thus, continued import of low human capital masses from The Third World not only solves the problems of those countries’ globalist elites, but it lifts up the U.S. economy. Obviously. Or something.

    • What a retarded statement. What you can’t get in middle America (apparently – I’ve only been to St. Louis) is a decent selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. I assume NYC gets everything good that leaves California. By the way, Clinton won Nevada.

  8. I think the NSA records most telecommunications in the USA at key locations especially going overseas. Searching the databases, metadata, and transferring the records is what FISA requests are about. Everyone is vulnerable including Trump, politicians, and criminals.

    • I was pulling out of the school parking lot a few years ago and stopped at the red light at the corner. While stopped, I went to look up something on my phone. As I did, it listed the wifi networks in range. One of them was “NSA listening post 63” I only remember it because it was so strange. There is a huge tower behind the gas station at the corner. I showed it to my son and he was really surprised.

      no too late

        Not as dumb, though, of setting your password to “password” as Podesta allegedly did for his email account.

        Also, nondescript names for your wifi would be “linksys,” “netgear” and so on.

        https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/22335

        Podesta/Hillary were so incompetent on security that I’m sure the Russians did hack them — along with dozens if not hundreds of others.

  9. For a supposed master of hiring + firing, Trump has been bad doing so in government:

    – Fires Flynn on a bad pretext, tries hiring Robert Harward who is GC + deep state, then hires McMaster who is also GC + deep state + pro-Islam

    – Doesn’t fire Comey who’s a known piece of shit when he becomes president

    – Hires Kelly at DHS who is GC + deep state + pro-economic immigration instead of Kobach

    – Hires Tillerson who is GC + believes in global warming + not pulling out of climate accords

    – Doesn’t fire most of the top level Obama appointees that are doing lots of the leaks. See : http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/18/top-ten-holdover-obama-bureaucrats-president-trump-can-fire-today/

    – Doesn’t fire the Obama acting head AG until she publicly refuses to defend Trump’s immigration ban

    – Doesn’t control Sessions + lets Sessions recuse himself without Trump’s permission

    – Doesn’t get rid of GC Paul Ryan when he could have, now we’ll be getting Obamacare lite

    List can continue…

    • The article headline is misleading. Trump’s executive orders on coal and energy are going to take the US out of compliance with the Paris Accord eventually. The debate is over whether to formally announce withdrawal from the treaty now as Bannon wants or wait a couple years until the effects of the energy orders take us out of compliance and then quietly announce we are leaving.

  12. Lion, left ignoramuses attacking the US/worker culture…I’m amazed at the nonsense on Trump liking well-done steak (or eating fried chicken or pizza with a fork, especially by the middle aged as they develop jaw problems, as done by Southern and NY homes and in Europe) . Here is a debunking article from several years ago: https://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation/is-ordering-well-done-steak-bad-in-defense-of-the-well-done-steak-and-those-who-order-it and here is a study on US habits https://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/how-americans-like-their-steak/

    Many people like steak medium to well-done, indeed as the article suggests about a third of the US population and especially if there is a German thing going in my experience, and it is traditional among many families in the US though declining as more people discover the wonders of a rarer ‘Texas’ steak. Chefs prefer you order it rarer, so that may be a factor in the outcry, as many DON’T know how to prepare a well-done steak and feel they can’t uncook a steak you feel is too cooked but can always adjust a rarer steak.

    Mom might do it so-so, but a high-priced chef who can’t produce a flavorful, juicy, well-done steak (which will taste somewhat like a Pot-Roast) should be fired. Not just the US. When I was in Argentina years ago they served a small well-done steak as a side with everything but ice cream, and they were all very tasty.

    BTW, the New York Strip cut Trump eats is particularly suited to being well-done and is traditionally served with ketchup or a tomato dish–regular US spicy ketchup, once known as ‘diablo sauce’–since Diamond Jim Brady popularized the dish over a century ago down the street from where Trump lives. A variant is a side of tomatoes with a sweet-spicy sauce, as done at Peter Luger’s.

    Ignoramuses.

  13. Lion, you have made arguments why we should have voted for Trump. But Trump won, that’s settled. The question conservatives need to consider now is whether it is better to support Trump or Pence.

    Pros for Pence – he will probably be more effective at getting legislation passed; won’t go golfing every week-end; won’t cost the taxpayers millions of dollars keeping his wife and son living in luxury in New York; doesn’t have compromising business connections to Russia, Dubai, Azerbaijan, etc.; won’t tank the economy pursuing 1950s style economic policies; and is probably less likely to annoy moderates in general, improving the Republicans chances to retain control in 2018.

    Negatives for Pence – he might wuss out on immigration; he will lose a lot of core Trump voters (even if Trump just resign for health reasons); doesn’t have the charisma Trump has so could get clobbered in 2020 if the Democrats find someone halfway exciting.

    Personally I don’t think Pence can turn back the clock on the Republicans’ positions on Russia, and probably not on immigration either. As long as Trump resigns before a major scandal breaks, Trump has already destroyed neocon influence in those areas and Pence would tread carefully before trying to shift the party back to the Bush/Romney positions.

    • Pence would turn into George W. Bush as soon as Trump leaves.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      March 6, 2017 at 9:33 am

      • Maybe. I think a lot of Republicans actually want a harder line on immigration though, including Pence. And until Trump came along they were just too afraid to stand up and be counted. Even if Trump had to step down, I don’t think the GOP will find it easy to stuff that genie back in the bottle.

        Peter Akuleyev

        March 6, 2017 at 9:52 am

      • If Trump leaves, Sessions will probably get taken down also, and Bannon, Stephen Miller will also be out of there. Pence will bring in a bunch of Christian Right types to replace them.

      • Hard to imagine anything good coming out of the WH in the next 4 years without Trump. I have a shred of hope that Mattis or McMaster will turn out to be a born-again-hard anti-globalist/populist/nationalist and will be the nominee in 2020 … anybody less annoying that Trump, please …

        Greg Pandatshang

        March 6, 2017 at 10:47 am

  14. Trump is the only one who will not sell out America. Everyone else is worthless without him. They will do nothing to stop and reverse the immigration disaster, just like they had done nothing until now. Remember a simple rule: American first, anything else is treason. This is so obvious that I don’t know why I’m even saying it.

    • The complete electromagnetic spectrum including light and the vibration of the air surrounding Trump is being monitored 24/7 and recorded by opponents and his own government. He will not be successful unless he takes some counter measures so he can do things secretly and insidiously. Example is the video showing the light coming from white house windows. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4284566/Video-emerges-Trump-s-Oval-Office-row-Bannon.html
