Thorner/Hasty: Is Trump bashing merited or blatant, emotionally-charged hatred?




By Nancy Thorner and Elvira Hasty - 

The Republican Establishment has become unhinged on its hatred for Donald Trump.  As Steven Simpson mused in his December 14, 2015 American Thinker article, "Donald Trump: Right as Usual:"

At this juncture, the election is almost a year away.  Much will occur in that period.  One thing is for sure:  Donald Trump is his own man, and as long as the Man Upstairs protects him from all his enemies, he is not going away.  The political elitists of both parties have better accept it.  Perhaps the Silent Majority is indeed back again.

This article by Kelleigh Nelson dated October 27, 2015, "Why the GOP Establishment Hates Trump", gets down to the nuts and bolts of why Trump is so despised.  It's because "he's thrown a money-wrench into the plans of the New World Order." (To understand the NWO, read Dr. Dennis Cuddy's chronology of same.) 

Kelleigh goes on to say: 

Who would have thought that an outsider, like billionaire Donald Trump, would capture the attention of the American people, and at the same time, infuriate the GOP, DNC, and MSM, but mostly his own party!". . . . Trump stands for "the opposite of what the New World Order gang wants! And that gang includes both the left and the right, and has for over 50 years now. Without Trump in the race, the Globalist, Wall Street, Corporate Media and RNC/GOP delivery of Jeb Bush would ultimately be the outcome. So, Mr. Donald Trump has struck fear in the hearts of the elitist globalists, and Donald is beholden to no one…not one special interest, nope, not one.

As Kelleigh further notes: 

The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he's had and all the business deals he's made, there is a massive void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.

It is indeed appalling how much time and energy is spent denouncing Trump and trying to make him look bad. They keep talking about Trump’s rudeness but not a word about how others have insulted him.  Jeb Bush called Trump a jerk.  For someone at 3% in the polls, he should instead stop insulting the over 30% who choose Trump and re-evaluate his candidacy. It tells me these individuals care more for their elitist positions in D.C. than for their country and the American people.

"Intellectuals" and their ill-advised Trump Fury

Fox News likewise spends more time bashing Trump than exposing Obama and Hillary for their treason. It happens with the 6:00 p.m. news (EST) with Bret Baier and his crony panel and old timers Brit Hume, Stephen Hayes, George Will, Charles Krauthammer.  Fox News even wants to bring Megyn Kelly back to its final presidential debate as moderator. Really?  We have likewise seen a real effort to trash Trump in Pajamas Media, particularly by Roger Simon and lately by Victor D. Hansen, who should stick to history. “Intellectuals” think trashing Trump elevates them because Trump refuses to be PC like they are.  Might intellectuals even be considered losers who have never contributed to any good thing in our society? 

Donald Trump has provided jobs for many people, who then pay taxes and raise families.  This benefits our country. Intellectuals, on the other hand, write and espouse and comment but don’t create jobs for anybody else except themselves. Their jobs often contribute little of anything except “entertainment”. Frequently intellectuals cannot even give us straight news; watching the world, as they do, from the inbreeding chit chats at DC cocktail parties.  Could it be that their inner selves tell them how useless their lives have been in the D.C. circle, making their hatred for Trump nothing more than jealousy at a man who has achieved the American Dream.

Recently the label of a dictator has been foisted upon Trump by some writers. Daniel Greenfield excellently explains in his latest blog how this wouldn’t be so out-of-line since for the past seven years this Congress has allowed Obama to trash the Constitution and rule as a dictator.  As Greenfield says:

The conservative establishment has all sorts of replies, but none of them amount to much. Yes, the rule of law is important. But when the other side is breaking the law to destroy the law, the contention that it should be allowed to destroy the Constitution rather than violate the Constitution becomes idealistic absurdity.  

Regarding the inappropriate dictator label ascribed to Trump, its purpose it to portray Trump as a bully instead of a decisive leader.  In the business world one has to work with several people and be able to delegate in order to be successful.  Perhaps to the media “getting things done” means it can happen only by force, since D.C. seems to be populated by mostly those who talk for a living.

Americans reject PC of Washington, D.C. elitists

The American people are frustrated with Congress.  The Republican Party has twice been rescued by voters, once in 2010 when they won the House of Representatives, and then in 2014 when the people gave them the Senate.  What has happened since we placed Republicans in charge of Congress?  Obama has been allowed to continue to rule by executive order and obtain every single desire in his progressive agenda with help from a majority of Republicans.  We have had a few loyal conservatives in Congress who have voted against the leadership and have brought hearings on certain scandals, such the IRS targeting of conservatives and the Benghazi crime, but even these conservatives have not been able to accomplish anything other than their NO votes and some eloquent rhetoric against the corruption.

Why is everyone in D.C. so afraid to tell the truth?  Most Americans of average intelligence already know:  Obama and his minions are traitors. Obama dislikes our country.  Obama is a dedicated Alinsky disciple who will never bend our way.  He is also, if not a Muslim, someone who admires Islam and blames the White European Christians for all the world’s inequalities and troubles.  Obama has given us countless unconstitutional decisions that are indeed impeachable, but not one Congressman has ever admitted to it.

Why then do the D.C. elitists wonder what makes Donald Trump so popular?  Trump is the only person in America who tells the truth and is not politically correct, even if it sounds rude to the delicate ears of the GOP establishment.  The authors believe that allowing Muslim refugees into our country, having an unprotected border, helping to establish ISIS in the Middle East, and the nuclear deal with Iran, happen to be much more important to our national security and way of life than how rude a candidate may sound to some when on the campaign trail. Undoubtedly Trump will clean up his campaign-style rhetoric if elected president.

DC elitists, which of course includes the GOP establishment, seem to think that good manners and friendliness are important qualifications for our leaders when negotiating with our enemies.  Remember how George W. Bush kept telling us that Islam was “a religion of peace.” This was the same President who allowed the Clintons’ crimes to go unpunished.  George W's father, G. H. Bush came to adore Bill Clinton. Some have even likened it to a father/son relationship. And what about Jeb Bush?  It was on September 10th, 2013, the eve of the first anniversary of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, that Jeb Bush, as chairman of the board of trustees of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, presented Hillary Clinton with that year's Liberty Medal, at which time he offered this laudatory Hillary statement:

Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy. These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.

Yes, this is the same public service that brought millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation to sell their country out to our enemies.

Trump Not the Problem, but the Solution to Many Americans

Our Founding Fathers were very intelligent, but they were human.  John Adams had commented that the Constitution was meant for a moral people. That in itself tells us that it then fails to take into account the sinfulness of man.  We now see the emergence of this arrogance and fear of the “DC inner class” (Republican Establishment) to lose their power and prestige under a so-called Donald Trump “dictatorship.”

As was stated by Rush Limbaugh on December 10, 2015 as part of a long commentary:

The entire Washington establish is like a bunch of parents and grandparents, just in absolute shock over what Trump is doing and saying, and they're out there condemning it. But they don't have the moral authority to pass judgment on Donald Trump, or anybody else.  Nor does the media.  They've squandered it all with the majority of the American people.  They have squandered it all with the Republican base.  So deep and wide is this disconnect.

Hear also what Laura Hollis has to say in her Townhall commentary of December 31, 2015, "Understanding Trump": 

People are tired of being silenced. A lot of Americans — not just middle-class whites — are tired of being told that their concerns are stupid, that they are racist or sexist or ableist or otherwise biased and should shut the hell up. They have questions. They have concerns. They have opinions; they have something to say. In comes Trump, who says what he thinks, insulated from political consequences by his fortune, and undaunted by the shame-and-blame game that the press has dutifully doled out for years to protect Democrat candidates and whittle the Republican herd. He has thumbed his nose at those who think they control the message in this country; he is speaking for a lot of people, and they are cheering for him.

If you really want to know what Donald Trump stands for and believes, here is an article from Doug Johnson's, Horse Sense blog that spells it out clearly and succinctly, and should make every conservative pleased to have Donald Trump as the Republican Presidential Candidate for 2016.

We the People must rise up in 2016 not only against the political class but also against the media, entertainment, and academic groups that have contributed for years to the decline of our moral values, our Founding Fathers principles and our Judeo/Christian values.  Donald Trump is not our problem.  To millions of Americans he is the solution.

  1. Sorry, but the track record of Trump is he has done the quickest and biggest flip-flops in U.S. political history. Even Romney had 5 years after being a liberal governor to pretend to be a conservative. One year ago Trump was a litmus test liberal Democrat. http://www.buzzfeed.com/christophermassie/a-guide-to-the-radical-left-wing-ideology-and-flip-flops-of?utm_term=.upZaYLvDj#.yrKvd7NZe Even this article misses his flips on immigration: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Donald-Trump-Ronald-Kessler/2012/11/26/id/465363/ and http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/08/dreamers_convinced_trump_to_support_amnestyin_2014.html
    I still don’t like Trump’s present position on single payer health care, no discernible cuts in spending, supporting the Kelo decision and, especially, that his ultraliberal sister is the type of judge he would like on the Supreme Court. The fact he wrecked his first marriage with adultery and is on his third wife, his coziness with the mob and casino gambling and his insult style of going after anyone in his way now even if he praised them in the past contrast Reagan who was consistently tough but classy with political opponents) and to me, I think the evidence is pretty clear that Trump of the past is closer to what he would be as President than the Trump of the present.

  2. Below are things you may not know about Trump. I have friends who are lawyers, those who hold Ph.D. degrees, and others who are well versed on politics. They don’t see Trump the way you do, Grant. Having never held office, Trump would really shake up the Establishment, which is composed of New World Order individuals, this is why the Establishment and Country Club Republicans hate him so much.
    Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up. The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think. And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t.
    1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
    2.) Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
    3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles American interests come first. Always. No apologies. Maximum firepower and military preparedness. Only go to war to win. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.Keep the technological sword razor sharp. See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. Respect and support our present and past warriors.
    4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them. 5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U.S., once again creating jobs here.
    6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
    7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.
    8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.
    9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
    10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.
    11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
    12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
    13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
    14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
    15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
    16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
    17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.
    18.) Trump support the death penalt
    Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

  3. And you will be calling the hysterical baby “Mr President” soon enough, you unworthy cretin.
    Enjoy your final few months of queer-baiting, baby-killing, Muslim-loving, black-lives-mattering ‘relevance’.
    The dustbin of history awaits you and your ‘folks’.

  4. Trump is bold and dumb like a fox. People have been so upset and angry with what has happened under the Obama-Clinton-Pelosi-Reed administration that they are willing to support any candidate that promises to sweep away the last vestiges of what this current inept regime has done to our country. Boldness is what has been required to catch the attention of the voters. Trump simply sells to the public whatever product that they are looking for. In this case it is “Boldness” and not the “Timidity” and “Gridlock” that the Washington DC Republican have been feeding us.
