RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
Rand Paul's been a bit flakey lately. He sometimes seems like he's trying to demonstrate his "national defense" cred to the neocons. I don't like that. Maybe he's just talking shit to give himself more appeal for the primaries (that's what I assume), but that strategy has proven to be a failure. I also haven't seen him take such a forceful stance on immigration, and that's my #1 specific issue right now.

Trump right now seems to be my first choice, though I need to see more about his foreign policy stances.

As others have said, fringe candidates with a lot of presence can often make a difference in the mainstream. One of the reasons for the Progressive Era at the turn of the 20th century was because populist and socialist candidates got a very large share of the popular vote in the late 19th century even though they never won anything. The mainstream was still forced to respond. This is why voting for a third party is not a wasted vote.

So if Donald trump is successful at showing just how pissed off most people are about immigration and these so-called "free trade" agreements, he can definitely make a positive difference. I just wish I'd see him talking about men's issues in particular and that would be a perfect trifecta.

When Rick Santorum starts to sound reasonable to me as he's talking about the destruction of the family and the will of society to make fathers irrelevant, you know things have gotten bad.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
Watching Trump has been such a breath of fresh air its insane, and the fact that an illegal who had been deported 5 times just killed an innocent woman in SF came at a perfect time for him. It shows how ridiculous the media is when NBC boycots him for calling attention to the fact that many violent criminals are coming up through the unsecured border, yet NBC supports that lying fag Brian Williams and that race baiting huckster Al Sharpton.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
I am so pissed at this woman in SF being killed by a 5 time illegal immigration felon who seemed high as a kite talking and spilling his guts to a reporter interviewing him after the shooting that I decided to sign up and volunteer for Trump since he does not need my money... but a Veteran supporting him in New Hampshire ought to garner a few more votes than otherwise might go to the Media fave RINOs so that the media darling Hillary can win in New Hampshire without debating, without giving interviews and without a truthful position paper because an old fossil saber toothed tiger like Hillary is truthiness challenged to say the least.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
Lmao... Trump is pretty much as redpill as it gets.

Here he is talking to the writer of "Modern Family," a show about homos raising kids, interracial couples, and God knows what else:

[Image: AAaUnRL.jpg]

[Image: 8lnsr88.png]

[Image: bwV8LlI.png]

Laugh5

He'll even call out a Jew by name:

[Image: 2GdjoYY.jpg]

Ohshit2

And yet, despite calling out shitty Jews for bad behavior, it looks like he'll have the Jews anyways:

http://www.jewishpress.com/news/breaking...015/06/16/

Quote:Being a maverick gives him the image of sticking by his word. When he says he loves Israel, he puts his money where his mouth is. Trump has a huge real estate project in Netanya, and his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, looks favorably on Israel for real estate investment.

Her husband is from an Orthodox Jewish family, and she has taken her conversion seriously, adding “Yael” to her name and saying that “we’re pretty observant, more than some, less than others.”

If “the Donald” is elected president, the United States will have its first Jewish daughter in the White House.

Her father hates President Obama with a passion and has said that he is Israel’s greatest enemy. Trump also is a fan of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Dude is pulling out all the stops and going for the jugular of the SJW machine. He has more balls than all of the Republican candidates put together right now.

[Image: iszSsb7.jpg]

Anyone who crosses him gets shit on and crawls back apologizing:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/break-dona...27049.html

Quote:Real-estate magnate Donald Trump is out with a fiery new statement mocking the media for its coverage of his presidential campaign.
Trump's Tuesday statement focused on ESPN, which canceled an upcoming tournament at a Trump golf course, and NASCAR, which is moving an upcoming banquet from a Trump resort.

Both moves, the Republican businessman said, are not a big deal at all.

"The disassociation of ESPN and NASCAR with the Trump Organization was covered by the press in headlines all over the world as though it was a major setback for me. Really? What were the losses?" Trump asked.

He added that he would now be able to rent out space to new groups of people, boosting his profit margins, and that both ESPN and NASCAR would be losing their deposits.

Trump also extensively praised the properties the events were scheduled to take place at.

"One NASCAR banquet in a magnificent ballroom at Trump National Doral in Miami for which I will keep their very substantial deposit and rent the ballroom to someone else that night — in other words, two fees instead of one (NASCAR has already apologized to me)!" Trump exclaimed. "In the case of ESPN ... they lost a large deposit. I will now let people use the course on that day, receiving substantial additional greens fee income. Again, I get two fees instead of one."

This is the best fucking thing to happen to American politics in my entire life

I don't always agree with Samseau here, but he is right on the mark with this.

Trump is hitting it out of the park.

And enjoying every bit of free advertising he is getting.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
The twist in the case continues. The gun was once owned by a federal agent:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/ap-s...cid=SMSDHP

The criminal is claiming that "he found it and it went off." Laugh

I wonder if this was some kind of secret program. After Fast and Furious, there's certainly a precedent.

Meanwhile you have now some outrage about this - the classic outrage is cutting the other way. Even Hilldebeast is saying shit like this:

Quote:Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CNN that San Francisco was wrong to ignore the ICE detainer request and release Sanchez from custody.

"The city made a mistake, not to deport someone that the federal government strongly felt should be deported," Clinton said.

The Federal government needs to enforce its laws. Those sanctuary policies are clear as day unconstitutional and if we're gonna get outraged over the Confederate flag, this is the same logic at work that the Confederacy had. Gentlemen, this is a real opportunity to exploit the outrage from our own end. Let's take advantage of it and use it for our own purposes, whether to boost Trump or elsewhere. Maybe I will write an ROK entry.

I really hope he wins. What do you guys think his chances are?

Thought of 8 years of Bush turn my stomach.

I also think that people may say they're not voting for him but behind the curtain will.

He is a real threat to the existing power structure. The Republicans have successfully trotted out this line about stopping Obama, all the while they do little to nothing in turning around his disastrous policies. Then they go and back Obama strongly on things like the Pacific Trade Plan, that looks like a real rotten deal for the middle class.

All of a sudden they have a guy they cannot silence that speaks for a huge majority of the GOP voting base. I think the Republicans will do all they can to shut Trump down, by any means possible. So I don't see Trump getting the Republican nomination. I don't know if he would run 3rd party or not, but he will not win as a 3rd party candidate, the Democrat would win easily.

If Trump can get the nomination of the Republican party it will be the true litmus test for the USA. If he can't win running on such a common sense message of more jobs and more security for Americans, then the country is done for and the SJW have won for good. If he does win, there might just be a chance to turn this country around from heading to bizzaro world.

I would say a 10% chance he gets the GOP nomination. Not because he is not popular enough among the base, but because the GOP is controlled by the same guys as the Democrats and they would lose lots of money with Trump running things.

If he can get the GOP nomination I would say a 60% chance of winning, simply because people would realize he is serious and we are badly hurting and 4 more years of Obama/Bush are too much for us to stomach in the same shit plans from Hillary. At least I hope the majority of people realize this.

I hope Trump stays in, simply to tell me if this country is done for good or not.

If he keeps it up I think he has a very good chance. Next he has to talk shit about Blacks and he'll be good to go Laugh maybe Muslims too. He's basically adopting Ronald Reagan's Southern Strategy of focusing solely on the white vote and appealing to hardcore white conservatives. Southern Strategy 2.0.


I think Trump listened to Ann Coulter's advice.

Coulter: Driving up the White Vote the Key to GOP's Success

Quote:According to Coulter, the way Republicans win is by instead looking to bolster the white vote and appeal to the base.


“The way that Republicans win is by driving up the white vote,” she said. “It’s not by appealing to women or Hispanics or blacks. In fact, those groups are going to start fighting among one another.”

“How about for once appealing to your base?” she continued. “The Democrats don’t obsess on ‘how do we get gun rights owners to support us a tiny bit more? How do we get pro-lifers to support us? Let’s get a slice of the evangelicals.’ The Republicans have been tricked into a suicidal electoral strategy. If [Mitt] Romney had gotten 71 percent of the Hispanic vote, which by the way Bush didn’t get … he didn’t get 51 [percent]. If you’re not getting 51 percent, you’re losing.”


If what Ann Coulter says is true. That you don't need Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, or women to win an election, just the white male vote, well Donald Trump is well on his way to the white house. The only other Republican candidate out there who may pose a challenge is Jeb Bush since he's well respected in many Republican circles. Even though it would be bad for another Bush to be in office, a lot of conservatives still have nostalgia for the George Bush years especially after Obama's presidency so don't underestimate Jeb Bush one bit since he's still leading in the polls. To many conservatives, bringing in another Bush will almost be like reliving the times without Obamacare, without higher taxes, no gay marriage and an array of of other things that happened under Obama. Donald Trump though if he keeps up with his strategy and stay true to his stances by shitting on minorities and rile up his base, he should win. Should be great to see the debates and it will interesting how it all plays out.

When are the Republican debates by the way?

Like I explained to you earlier in this thread, the open border hurts minorities far more than whites. Trump just needs to explain this in his debates and continue to reach out to the common sense people who want to provide for themselves if only given the opportunity to do so.

He can't appeal to all whites. There are those who are die hard Obama fans. He won't appeal to Latino culture either.

Does the core white vote contain any power in the USA?

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
^ I think it's way more likely Trump will take the GOP nomination than win the nationals. The primaries are when the hardcore conservatives vote. NO ONE LIKES Bush, Rubio, etc. All are scammers. Even if they kick Trump out of the debates, Trump still has the money and clout to be heard.

Across the conservative and racist blogosphere, Trump is getting huge praise right now. Unless they can take Trump's name off the ballot (good luck with that and keeping the GOP voter base intact) he's going to win the primary because primaries are when the hardcore vote.

At the nationals, however, the latinos will be against him 80% or more. Whites will be divided, perhaps with a small majority in his favor (60% in favor of Trump). The question are the Blacks. How would they vote? Will they side with the Democrat freebies, or will the Blacks decide they've had enough of the Latinos and vote for Trump?

Trump is playing to racial interests very shrewdly. He knows there is a chance the Blacks will side with him because Blacks are not exactly huge fans of illegal immigration, and the Democrats haven't done shit for the Black community in the past 8 years even with a "Black" (he's half-White btw) president. And if it comes down to voting for Hillary or Trump, most Blacks will find it difficult to get out of bed on election day. Two White candidates, a Democrat woman vs. Republican man? How many Blacks are going to give a fuck?

I agree primaries bring out the hard core conservatives. That is why in the primaries you have to be aggressively to the right to make them happy and win the nomination. But then trying to swing back to the middle after saying a lot of stuff to get the nomination provides plenty of ammo for the democrats to use in carpet bombing whoever wins the Republican primaries.

I saw somewhere that there are not enough white voters that even if they all voted one way would it guarantee a win. Also in the electoral system the states with more votes tend to have a significant population of minorities and liberals.

Shrewdly to raise awareness to a real problem that needs to be solved, not shrewdly to win a Presidential election. Hispanics will be heavily against him, a few more whites will be mobilized for him, but blacks will stay in the Democratic camp, especially riding in the wake of Obama. They've been on that reservation for 50 years. Illegal immigration is an issue that doesn't have a visibly direct enough impact on the lives of blacks to mobilize large quantities of them to the polls. No doubt it does negatively impact black communities, most viscerally in the race crimes by latino gangs against black residents in Los Angeles. Trump would need a strong piece of news coming from the streets of L.A. telling of a race war or vicious crime to go viral to even have a chance at bringing this into the minds of black voters.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
This is what Trump really needs to push and focus on - a giant fence and crushing both the supply by burning out the growing fields and the demand by wiping out much of the supply like what was done by the DEA in Columbia - if he does he crushes the other GOP RINOs, Indies, Socialists and Hildebeastie Social Obamunista Democrats:

http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/28/opinions/w...war-folly/

I honestly had no idea that heroin was so much more profitable than cocaine or marijuana... no wonder there is such an opiod epidemic in the USA...

Seizures of marijuana at the border are down almost 40% since several states in the U.S. have legalized it, The Washington Post reported. Mexican marijuana traffickers will tell you that it's not worth it anymore -- they can't compete with the domestic American price and quality. The wholesale price of Mexican marijuana has dropped from $100 a kilogram to $25. Growers in Durango and Sinaloa have stopped planting the crop.

We've cut marijuana imports almost in half within the last two years by legalizing it...

Don Winslow

So we're winning the war on marijuana along the border -- costing the violent sociopaths of the cartels millions of dollars -- by legalizing it.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that the cartels have responded to this loss by shipping more coke, meth and especially heroin. The heroin epidemic in the Northeast is mostly supplied by the Sinaloa cartel, by far the dominant drug trafficking organization in Mexico today. Addicts who were using prescription opiates are turning to Mexican heroin because it's cheaper.

Cheaper -- at $40,000 to $50,000 a kilo by the time it hits, say, New York City.

A kilo of raw opium sap produced in Mexico costs about $1,500. That's $1,500 on one side of the border, $50,000 on the other. That's a pretty good profit margin. A kilogram of cocaine costs about $12,000 to buy in Mexico but is worth $27,000 once it crosses that border.

So after four decades of the war on drugs, we've cut marijuana imports almost in half within the last two years by legalizing it, while the heroin, coke and meth just keep coming.

In essence, when we stop fighting, we win.

When we keep fighting, the cartels win.

When the drug bosses look at the border, they don't see fences or walls -- they see money.

The border is siempre verde -- always green -- to drug traffickers.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
A Canadian blogger's perspective of Donald's rise in the polls (one I mostly agree with):

http://canadiancincinnatus.typepad.com/m...fight.html

Quote:After Donald Trump’s speech announcing his Presidential campaign, many conservative pundits laughed at The Donald. After that, Trump shot up in the polls – which says something about the state of conservative punditry as well as the state of the country.

Why is Trump doing well? When Abraham Lincoln was asked why he supported a drunkard like Ulysses S Grant, he said it was because he fights. At another time, when challenged about Grant, he asked what brand of whiskey Grant favoured and asked that a case be delivered to all his other field commanders. Right now Republican voters are as exasperated as Abraham Lincoln before Grant delivered him the victory at Vicksburg. Lincoln had suffered a succession of weak, incompetent, and gutless generals in his fight against the Army of Northern Virginia, but every time he replaced one (usually after a battlefield disaster), the man he chose proved to be equally feckless against the wily Robert E. Lee. That is, until Grant. Just like today, when rank-and-file Republicans are sick and tired of incompetent standard-bearers like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell - the Ambrose Burnside and Fightin’ Joe Hooker of the Grand Old Party.

...

... Trump took a minor PR fiasco and turned it into a triumph. All because he fought back. And don’t kid yourself; this kind of stuff really matters. It is via anecdotes like this by which the Low Information Voter assesses the alpha male qualities of the candidates he is presented with.

...

This is not to say that I endorse Fiorina, much less Trump. In the case of the latter, I do believe he has serious and potentially debilitating personality flaws that disqualify him, at least in my eyes. My aim in this post is merely to point out the importance of the fighting spirit in a Presidential candidate and how this most precious quality has been notably lacking in many (most) establishment Republican politicians - and that the Republican rank-and-file are hungry to see this in their champions. Personally I think Scott Walker is probably the best choice for the GOP, but if Walker does win the nomination, may I suggest Carly Fiorina as his running mate.

She would positively crush Hillary.

I agree his over-the-top personality will likely cost him a chance at the nomination. It's too bad, because he is the only candidate seemingly interested at all in securing the US border, something you guys down South really, really need. Also from a purely selfish perspective, I anticipate resource trade with Canada would be a priority to his administration, as he is nothing if not practical. That damn pipeline might finally be finished.

RE: The Trump Card: Donald Wants To Fire Obama
I'll say this, if Donald can actually push legislation and bring jobs back to the US, I will be highly impressed. I do think he tends to bully/push his way to get his way, which is fine, but I think dealing with Congress isn't that easy. Unless he has LBJ's touch. From what I understand LBJ really had a way of getting his votes.

If he truly wants to grow the middle class and fuck all his wealthy friends, then he would be doing a service to the country. It is just hard to know what he can really do. As the saying goes talk is cheap, just because he is a good business man doesn't mean he will be a good politician.

Trump leading North Carolina polls for 3rd week in a row:

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/...olina.html

Quote: He's the top choice of Republican primary voters in the state, getting 16% to 12% for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 11% for Mike Huckabee, 9% for Ben Carson and Marco Rubio, 7% for Rand Paul, 6% for Ted Cruz, 5% for Chris Christie, 4% for Carly Fiorina, 2% for Rick Perry, 1% each for Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Santorum, and less than 1% each for John Kasich and George Pataki.

Trump's favorability rating in North Carolina is 55/32, much higher than we were finding in national polls prior to his entry into the race. Trump's really caught fire with voters on the far right- 66% of 'very conservative' voters see him favorably to only 24% with a negative view of him. Trump is polling particularly well with younger voters (29%) and men (20%).

Jeb Bush had been leading our previous few polls in North Carolina. But he continues to struggle with conservatives. Among 'very conservative' Republicans, only 37% see him favorably to 44% who have a negative opinion of him and only 7% of those voters support him for the nomination, putting him in 7th place in the GOP field. Bush's overall 43/35 favorability is the second worst of any of the 10 candidates we measured that for, besting only Chris Christie's 27/41 standing.

Jeb Bush is a RINO. Dude supports amnesty and open borders. Voting for him is no different than voting for Hillary. Of course Trump will annihilate him in the primary, there was never a doubt in my mind.

Samseau my prediction remains that the media will tear Trump down before any of the voting gets underway. They can do anything they want, make up any lie they need to, but he will be destroyed.
