  • Who is Donald Trump and what does he really stand for?

    So eloquent! Sooooo persuasive! So diplomatic with voters you need to persuade! My IQ is 163. What's yours?

    America is far too important to allow principled conservatives or anyone else who loves America to vote for an absolute POS like Willard. If that also turns out to be true of Trump, I will vote for a conservative whether the party hacks like it or not. I won't be bought. I won't be bossed. Neither will an ever increasing number of and percentage of conservatives.

    When the GOP-E and its $$$$ (read Wall Street, K Street, US Chamber of Crony Commerce) nominated Willard, Obozo was re-elected then and there. The US was guaranteed to be in ruins by 2016. The remains of the GOP would still exist and make it possible to defeat the Demonrats in the future. If Willard had been elected, the GOP would have been in final ruins as well. No thanks! Therefore Willard would have been even WORSE than comrade Obozo.

    If this nation crashes and burns, look in the mirror and thank yourself. If you don't want the nation to further crash and burn, then you had better see to it that the GOP whores nominate candidates WORTH VOTING FOR. If not, oh well.... Wanna lose again? Re-nominate Willard or any POS like him and down ya go again! Got it?

    Your last paragraph suggests that even Willard could get your vote. Ummmmm, that is NOT a conservative credential. Any old leftist POS running on the GOP brand is NOT the standard unless you are hoping for a choice appointment or lucrative contracts from the usual gang of corrupt Wall Street GOP-E whores.

    I, as an actual conservative, will withhold my vote from any candidate of any party for any office who is NOT conservative. Sorry about you. If that be "purist" behavior, make the most of it as a growing number of former Republicans torpedo the usual GOP-E trash. Around my house, we call that something known as "principle." Don't like it? Tooooooooo BAAAAADDDD!

    So, in lieu of the usual undocumented insult to Trump Skeptics, do you have some specifics as to why you claim that Verga is "disgusting?"

    Is it that he does not blindly worship at the altar of the Trump or reflexively and unreservedly kiss Trump's rump? Or is it that he does not reduce all of the magnificent tapestry that is conservatism to knee jerk bordermania. I want the border closed too but Trump is going to have to explain himself on a much broader range of issues IN DETAIL if he wants actual conservative support either for the nomination or in November, 2016.

    I respect you for your encyclopedic political knowledge and grasp of political history. I tended to disagree with you previously only on the border issue and, after modifying my own view a bit, as to its importance in the hierarchy of issues. I had hoped that I had earned your respect as well but that is up to you, as it must be.

    On Megyn Kelly and her monthlies, I adamantly disagree with any claim that this was a figment of Eric Erickson's imagination. OTOH, Erickson is neither a leftist hack nor a conservative hero. Check the article on Erickson in Wikipedia which attributes the "blood coming out of her wherever to Fox News and not to Erickson.

    Trump has been cozy with Her Satanic Majesty, with the Clinton Family Crime Foundation, with Chicago's The Rahmfather, etc., etc., etc. This is excused as a cost of doing real estate business by The Donald. Bribery of leftists is still bribery of leftists. What are the sultans of Brunei and Abu Dhabi doing that Trump is not doing?

    When Willard tries to get in again, I will join you in attacking him but, until then, you and I must agree to disagree.

    When Trump is over with, as I suspect he will be when he fails to navigate the ideological waters, I promise to be kind.

    God bless you and yours! I

    Well, one good story begets another. Enjoy!

    I attended a national convention of Young Americans for Freedom (likely in 1975) after Feckless Gerald Ford had inherited the job of POTUS courtesy of the Trickster who probably saw Ford's status as VPOTUS as Nixon's guaranty that Congress would not do such damage to America as to remove Nixon in favor of a dangerous dolt like Ford. That certainly worked out well didn't it? Even Nixon failed to gasp what enemies of our country the Demonrat Congressional majority had become after McGovern's hostile takeover of that party.

    We conservatives were enraged with Nixon over the China trip, wage and price controls, devaluing the dollar, creating the Envirowhacko Protection Agency, appointing Herod Blackmun and Clueless Lewis Powell to SCOTUS, Roe vs. Wade, the SALT Treaty, detente, and many. many other issues.

    Next up as (the only unelected) POTUS: Bumbling Gerry Ford. He named Nelson Rockefeller as VPOTUS, shut down the Vietnam War altogether that had cost us 50,000 young men at arms, demoralized the Gulag prisoners by snuggling with Brezhnev, continued Nixon/Kissinger cowardice in the face of Brezhnev, was willing to negotiate away our weapons advantages, was downright hostile (along with his wife Betty) to any and all social conservatives, enacted a 55 MPH national speed limit, refused to invite Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn to the White House lest we offend the soviets in the same year when Solzhenitsyn was the commencement speaker at Harvard!

    One asset that Ford did have was his verrrrry lovely seventeen year old daughter Susan. Betty Ford was invited by CBS Network to be interviewed by Morley Safer. This became fodder for Bill to address the social liberalism of Gerald and Betty Ford for an appreciative and largely young male audience, eagerly contemplating Susan in spite of her ancestry.

    Safer asked the clueless Betty Ford as to her views on teenaged Susan becoming perhaps involved in a sexual affair. Betty, not bright enough to recognize that this question was supposed to elicit a response from Betty that, like all fashionable and responsible parents, she would take "nubile young Susan" (as Buckley memorably phrased it) right on down to Planned Barrenhood to get a prescription for birth control pills, be fitted for an IUD or diaphragm, a supply of spermicide, and a frank discussion on the easy availability of abortion if chosen contraceptive methods failed and, of course, nary a word on abstinence.

    Instead Betty said it would depend on the "qualifications of the young man." Bill asked: What qualifications might pique Mrs. Ford's interest in a young man? That he be handsome? Certainly Susan herself would be a better judge of the looks of a potential lover! That he be rich? That would seem to violate the spirit of the age of relentless equality! That he be of high social standing? Ditto! That he be a high-powered intellectual? How would Betty Ford know?

    Bill Buckley wrapped up by saying that inevitably we are led to the conclusion that Mrs. Ford had not thought the matter through and that she was quite incapable of thinking the matter through. Elegantly, Bill left the bleeding corpse of Betty Ford's reputation in the gutters. We left, determined to nominate Ronaldus Maximus instead and it took two more tries but it was well worth it.

    May God bless you and yours!

    But for the fact that death comes for us all and that the actors were mortal, MASH probably WOULD have lasted longer than the 100 Years’ War if the Hollywood left (but I repeat myself) had its way. Personally, I hope that Mark Steyn will have his chance at the gold ring. If Rush should ever (God forbid!) retire or be unable to continue, Steyn should be next in line. As always, he is right that the show was really part of the propaganda against the effort to defeat Ho Chi Minh.

    I asked my wife about what she thought Buckley might say about Trump in light of his famous quote about supporting the most conservative but electable candidate. She said: Trump is neither electable nor conservative. What's the question?

    I recognize that speaking on Bill Buckley's behalf when he has been dead since 2/27/08, is an inexact science. Tempus fugit. He has been gone now for 7 1/2 years. I have every confidence that Bill's response to Trump would have been both incisive and humorous. He was 84 when he died and had every marble he was born with. He was a gentleman.

    Now, political correctness had nothing to do with Bill and vice versa. Famously, in 1968 or 1972, he and Gore Vidal were hired by ABC News as commentators at the GOP convention. Vidal called Bill a fascist or a Nazi or some such and Bill got out of his chair on camera and headed in Vidal's direction saying; Take that back you GD little faggot or I'll break your jaw (or something similar). Bill was called on the carpet by PBS which broadcast his Firing Line program and demanded that Bill apologize. So Bill addressed the subject at his next show by saying: I apologize to the GD little faggot for calling him a GD little faggot. So much for PC and for apologies.

    While my wife worked for Bill Buckley, his annual Christmas party at his town house in Manhattan was a cherished experience.

    I understand full well that Trump's populism is killing the media and the RINOs. However, I am skeptical as to his conservatism and hope that he won't wind up killing us.

    God bless you and yours!

    That must be why Bill Buckley and Bill Rusher and others supported John Ashbrook's primary candidacy against Nixon in 1972. Now was it because Ashbrook could win? If you think that overused quote reflects Bill Buckley comprehensively, then you did not know him. I did know him and my wife was employed by him.

    Bill was a gentleman and an elegant one and would have been appalled by Trump.

    I know a lot of pro-military folks and some MAY support Trump but I have yet to hear anyone say they support him for his detailed plans to rebuild our military strength and that is because he has expressed no such plans.

    Candidates just love to be for motherhood (at least GOP candidates) and the flag (ditto) and apple pie and hot dogs and Chevrolet and patriotism (ditto), national defense second to none (megadittoes) and religion (megadittos), all without particulars that can come back to haunt them after they have sold us the snake oil, achieved office and want to screw us over because they imagine they know better than we ever could.

    Perhaps you can cure what you imagine to be my "ignorance" by telling me, among other issue specifics, Trump's SPECIFIC plans for taking SCOTUS and fedcourts back for Western Civilization, turning BATF into a toothless convenience store, bringing us back to a Reagan level 600 ship Navy, saving Social Security and Medicare, cutting the taxes of ordinary Americans for a change rather than Wall Street zillionaires, or just what he will DO to improve a Veteran's Department in desperate need of improvement. It just will not suffice for him to say he will do better than the communist in the White Mosque. Nor to claim he will be better than whatever boogieman the Demonrat crime conspiracy chooses to nominate. That was not good enough for Willard and it won't be good enough for anyone else.

    The only votes I have ever been in charge of have been my own, no less and no more than you control your own vote. They call it democracy or a democratic republic.

    In my distant youth, I took up a dating relationship with a young woman somewhat younger than I. I asked her if she regarded herself as "liberated." She replied immediately that she did not have to be liberated since she had never been captured in the first place.

    We exist in Western Civilization. I do not quite share the passionate commitment of fundamentalist Evangelicals and Pentecostals to pour over Scripture again and again but I do recognize that anyone seeking the job of POTUS is seeking to lead Western Civilization and darn well ought to be familiar with substantial amounts of Scripture. Trump seems to think that it is enough to say that he is a sort of Presbyterian and, according to you, blows off any attempt to learn what that means to him.

    No questions, not even our southern border immigration, have greater implications for our society and its future than whether those governing us believe in God, sin, virtue, heaven and hell. For the alternative see Hitler's Germany, Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist USSR and Red China, Ho Chi Minh's North Vietnam, the North Korea of the three Kims, the Cambodia of Pol Pot. America is increasingly secular because religious matters make the lowinfos's heads explode with a complexity they just cannot handle.

    If demanding the specifics of Trump's or any other candidate's policy proposals makes me a "hater," I've got news for you. Our nation depends on informed voters. It ill behooves you or anyone else to demand of voters the ignorance of which you imagine you are accusing me.

    I know, I know, all this talk of actual issues is just soooooo confusing that it may make your head hurt. Why can't you just elect the Rump today before he gets tripped up by all those, those, those conservatives. All they want is some boringly complex old public policy when you want emotional satisfaction and you want it NOW!

    Those who oppose Trump for his lowbrow and low info campaign have not hit any walls. No votes have been counted. No delegates chosen. No electoral votes determined. Fifteen months to an election is an eternity in politics. We could not prevent Romney from BUYING the 2012 nomination but we did make Romney hit his wall and unless The Donald improves his specificity and his politeness we can help him to the same fate before (if possible) or after (if necessary) the GOP convention.

    Those who yearn for a Trump presidency because it would FEEEEEEL sooooooo gooooood should bear in mind that you would be wiser to convert his skeptics than to attack us. Romney never got that message until election day.

    INDEED! If his Trumpness manages to buy the nomination as Willard did, we will be hearing about how we have an obligation to run off the cliff with the GOP lemmings just as we heard last time. Not only ought we not to vote for RINOs or CINOs, we ought also to avoid voting for the candidates who refuse to articulate their positions on issues. That too is a form of political correctness. It is not enough to simply refrain from discussing Megan Kelly's menstrual cycles in public much less on the campaign trail. If Trump's mama were alive, she would probably take his sorry backside to the woodshed.

    If Bill Buckley were alive, he would be flaying Trump alive.

    I generally agree with you but do you have any evidence that this lifelong Democrat Trump is anything better than a political panderer on the border issue who talks dirty? Do I really want, out of a field of 17 candidates, the one who wants to discuss Megan Kelly's menstrual periods (if, at her age, she still has them)? That would be a no unless and until Trump takes on more substance at the expense of brainless bombast. For all we know, he is nothing but Willard with a coarser mouth and no track record to be held against him (at least in public office).

    All I am asking is that, before people start stampeding off a cliff, we ought to know what his policies are, force him to make promises which can be used to destroy him (a la Bush the Elder's no new taxes) if he is lying. I don't know the Donald personally. From the moment Ronaldus Maximus left the White House, we have witnessed an unrelieved parade of worthless second raters or worse (Slick Willie or Comrade Obozo) as POTUS. I'm looking for quality this time.

    When you say Trump might stand up and call a spade a spade, I somehow do not imagine that to be n exercise in masculinity but rather an unacceptable verbal mugging of an impertinent reporter.

    Again, Trump is no Patton.

    When I was in law school, I could only afford to see movies in the dollar theater in my neighborhood. Lest anyone get upset with the theaters, they insisted on pairing Patton with MASH. I paid to see Patton again and again but, unfortunately a tiny amount of money went to the MASH folks.

    I confess that after seeing the movie MASH, I made it a matter of principle NEVER to see the TV show. I had the definite impression that the MASH crowd on screen were generally not too eager to defeat the North Korean and Red Chinese enemies of our country but rather just to get home and party on! The left's most effective slogan of the early 1970s was: Dare to struggle! Dare to win! (over the USA of course). We satirized them by changing their cherished slogan to: Dare to snuggle! Dare to Sin! A lot of what the New Left was about was the implied promise of morals free sex. Of course, few of them could be credible on that up close.

    Alda's entire life is one of unrelieved leftist airheadedness. See most of his cinematic roles and all of his talk show appearances.

    Korea was the first war that we did not win in nearly two hundred years. It was in Asia, against some Asians, against the sainted communists during our next war (Vietnam) which became our first outright loss. MASH was a natural for the Hollywood left and they also got to make it into a comedy poking fun at our efforts to resist the inevitable (as they saw it), communization of Asia.

    I wish I could give you a more humorous response but I am a bit tired. I had a first cousin (one of my favorites) who was a Marine Corps veteran of Korea. I find little humor in the Korean War or its outcome.

    I'd like to see Alan Alda yukking it up over Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath at a convention of armed Korean War veterans with, perhaps, a contingent of North Koreans now suffering under Kim Jong Mentally Ill as the did under his father and grandfather.

    There is one consolation. Obozo has not figured out how to arm treasonous Hollywood with nuclear weapons.

    Sorry for the gloom and doom. You know I value you above almostal other FReepers. God bless you and yours!

    That is quite a fantasy you have written up here.

    No, what is insanity is sacrificing anything and everything good that America ever was or ever could be to rage against Mexicans. I have come to agree with the bordermania types at this point on closing the border but in spite of single issue fanatics who seem to live, breathe and act only on their despising of Mexicans not because of those fanatics.

    God protects drunks, cripples and the USA and not necessarily in that order. He appears to have been on vacation since 2007, but not really.

    I get it. You don't like Mexicans and you will take for POTUS any old POS, regardless of his positions or lack thereof on any and all other issues. National defense? Who cares, right? The babies? Let 'em die if the Rump almighty says so (AFTER he is in office, of course). Gun grabbing? Hey, what the heck? The Rump's new anti-Mexican policy will take care of any need for, well, GUNS! You don't think car-jackings and home invasions are perpetrated by anyone other than Mexicans, right?

    Not that anyone cares but Social Security and Midicare are rapidly going bankrupt as the Demonrats DENY that there is a problem and "Republicans" like the Rump simply don't give a damn. Do you really believe him when he says he wants to pay more taxes so you can pay less?

    If you are sufficiently hysterical over the Mexicans, The Donald is eager to send a few 44 gallon drums of Dr. Feelgood rhetoric to you and, by damn, that should just be enough.

    Has anyone seen this guy in church, ANY church, more recently than Obozo? Doesn't matter! He'll make the da*n Mexican gummint pay the whole freight for that new fence. And it is only right! You've been beside yourself with anger over the border for years and years and years and NO ONE paid you lip service. Well The Donald is paying you lip service and that makes you FEEEEEEL soooooo gooooood!

    Note that the only other issue you raised was the shameful treatment of our veterans by Obozo's Islamocommunist cadre running the nation. Of course, it would have been no better under Willard.

    As to the Rump's language, my purpose was defending a fine Christian gentleman and actual conservative GeronL from the abuse he was getting unjustifiably here from those who ought to know better just because he does not worship The Rump. GeronL and I have, no doubt, differences on the details of our respective theologies but neither of us is into Rump worship.

    The Donald wants to be elected? He would do well to do a bit more than read a few issues of conservative publications to learn how to pander to the base. I gave him credit for his immigration position paper and expressed interest in seeing similarly detailed position papers on a LOT of other conservative issues. If he wants my vote, even next November, his billions and his loud boorish mouth don't make him any more likely to get it. He will have to EARN it the old-fashioned way by inspiring confidence as neither Obozo nor Willard did in 2012.

    Whatever you may imagine, I am open minded on the Rump but so far. he is showing NOTHING other than on immigration and that is not enough. Most actual conservatives become conservative by THINKING and not by becoming lemmings. I was a Reagan state chair when he challenged the airheaded Feckless Gerald Ford. Like all officeholders and less than most, Reagan made mistakes but I don't remember him attributing media questions from reporterettes to their menstrual cycles much less in public.

    If you really, really, really want to see The Donald sworn in as POTUS, hs mouth is his and your worst enemy. I never had reason to be embarrassed by Ronaldus Maximus, a true gentleman. I wonder, if you are honest with yourself and others, if you will be able to say the same of the bordercentric fad of the month.

    I am sorry that you are jealous of the fabulous luxuries you imagine are enjoyed by Mexican immigrants but you will probably get over it once the border is closed and you have some chance to ponder abortion, "gay" everything, the state of gummint indoctrination in gummint skewels, RTKBA, the collapse of the US industrial base, tax favoritism for the plutocrats who bribe (by political "contributions") politicians for the immigration non-policy which you reasonably hate, the rebuilding of our Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, the extermination of ISIS and Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood and Al Fatah, and Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Iranians who are nuking up as you have anti-Mexican temper tantrums, and the rest of conservatism which you are comfortable ignoring.

    Wanna disagree? Feel free. Being retired, I have time on my hands and generally give at least as well as I take. Bring it on!

    Fantasywriter and Patton@Bastogne:

    Patton was famous for his vulgar language. His job (and he did a magnificent job of it) was killing our nation's enemies wholesale. As a movement, we knew Patton historically. He was the anti-MASH, the antithesis of uberwimp Alan Alda. Patton was a friend of ours and of Western Civilization. Trump is NO Patton. Trump won't get the same pass if nominated. Nor should he.

    My parents taught me manners. Your parents undoubtedly taught you manners. Even The Donald's parents taught him manners but he rebels against the very notion.

    GeronL is advocating civilized standards and language in our culture. There is a difference between civilization and "political correctness" which threatens civilization.

    Whatever else Trump may represent, he has very little "class." He is doing politics as performance art. If he took off his clothes on stage and smeared himself with melting chocolate, his supporters would make lame arguments for how brilliant such behavior really is.

    Trump's supporters ought to expect more of a candidate. He is capable of making serious policy proposals as indicated by his release of his policy proposals on immigration. Now let's hear a similar level of specifics on:

    Baby-killing, SCOTUS and other fedcourt nominations, eliminating OBOZO/Romneyare, environmental policy including winding down the EPA, giving up the excessive fedcontrol of Western land, the right to keep and bear arms, kicking ISIS's collective patoot and finishing the SOBs off once and for all together with finishing off their Islamofascist brethren, restoring America's "greatness" as the sole remaining superpower in world affairs, restoring the US industrial base whether the wussies of Wall Street like it or not, restoring the funding of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force to Reagan era levels such as a 600 ship Navy, dealing with the menace that is the United Nations (united against us), enforcing the right of Americans to freedom of worship as included in the First Amendment, public recognition that our rights as Americans come from God and not from government (which has the obligation to secure those rights), etc. ,etc., etc.

    Getting to work on those and other priority issues should take precedence over making an embarrassing low-rent fool of himself with linguistic temper tantrums about how Megan Kelly had blood coming from her eyes or her "wherever."

    I would also like some serious explanation of his prior support of "single payer" Obozo/Romneycare, abortion on demand, allowing a "transgender contestant to compete in his "Miss" Universe competition, his apparent prior weakness on RTKBA, how he would never appoint the likes of his militant pro-abort federal judge sister to ANY judgeship, an how he came to change his mind on these and so many other issues. Is he consciously pandering to the base or, as with Reagan on abortion, did he genuinely change his mind and, if so, why?

    I refused to vote for one "Republican" Obozo in whiteface known as Mitt Romney. I think I agree with Trump a lot more than I ever could or did with Romney. OTOH, recognize that Trump will lose many votes unless he cleans up his act and his mouth and emphasizes detailed substance over flash. Neither Obozo nor Romney were adequately vetted. How did that work out?

    Bush the Elder was a WW II hero. In the White House, however, his highest ambition was creating a "New World Order." I voted for him in 1988 against Mike Dukakis who, as a state legislator in Taxachusetts, filed bills which would have abolished criminal sanctions on those engaged in sexual relations with non-human animals, among many other moral atrocities.

    Then Bush the Elder's policies had become obvious when he ran for POTUS again in 1992. I am ashamed to say that I voted for him in 1992 as well. Perot was just another malefactor of wealth abusing the system (not that Bush the Elder was any better in that respect just less bizarre as a personality).

    I am also ashamed that I voted in 1996, for Robert Dole, also a WW II hero, in spite of the fact that he was certainly the "Tax Collector for the Welfare State," because four years of Slick Willy was quite enough. I could vote with satisfaction FOR the far more conservative and trustworthy Jack Kemp as the VPOTUS candidate.

    Then there was the matter of John McCain in 2008, another war hero (whatever Trump may fantasize). His opponent was Obozo. One more time the GOP fog machine convinced me that Obozo was the boogieman. They convinced me to vote for McCain who seems likely insane and definitely untrustworthy on so many, many other issues. He is also the air-headed Miss Piggy's daddy for which he should never be forgiven.

    You can see a couple of patterns here. One I was voting for war heroes. Two I really voted for Sarah Palin. Three, as to McCain, and Dole and Bush the Elder (and Feckless Gerald Ford and Tricky Dick before them) I was embarrassing myself by voting for any old POS with a "Republican" label.

    A dwindling number of "Republicans" still do.

    They even voted for a leftist absolute POS like Romney who BOUGHT his nomination and then went non-combatant in the face of his disciple Obozo. The moment that Willard was nominated ripped it for me. If I cannot even argue for such a POS, why should I vote for him? Why should anyone? When I die, I shall not have that baby-killing, marriage destroying, gun grabbing, anti-military, medicine destroying, nationalism despising, clueless pimp Romney on my conscience and I shall not have to attempt in vain to explain such a vote to my Creator who certainly knows better than the transparent advocates of the likes of Romney

    OOOOOOOH but the intentions and MORALS of the voter mean nothing according to the GOP-E ringmasters because they have no morals of their own. But, but: Willard's opponent was another in the George McGovern era quadrennial demonrat boggiemen! Or should that be boogiepersons? We'll have to ask the RNC whores, right? No sense being EXTREME and embarrassing all those crony capitalist "respectables just because they are selling out us, our (former) party and our nation! It's just not NICE!

    The "idiots who voted us in bammy and then voted him in again" are the ones that VOTED FOR OBOZO. The other idiots settled for Romney who would have added the wreckage of the Republican brand to Obozo's wreckage of America which Willard would have enthusiastically continued.

    The numbers of brain dead automatic slaves to GOP-E corruption will certainly decrease because of demographics and an absolutely fatal lack of principle and creativity (other than coddling the rich and servicing the Wall Street, K Street and US Chamber of Crony Commerce gang).

    Want the votes of actual CONSERVATIVES for the pathetic GOP's candidates? Stop nominating quislings. Stop trying to sell out every conservative principle in order to create a "New World Order" and to fatten up privileged but vacant-headed Muffie and Skipper's trust funds, beef up their strings of polo ponies and making big business profits the ONLY operative principle of the hollowed out shell of what was once (three decades ago and then skip back to Calvin Coolidge) a great political party and a force for actual good. Start nominating (at every level) candidates WORTH VOTING FOR.

    Voting for the GOP-E trash that they usually nominate only encourages these criminals. If this country simply MUST be ruined, let it be ruined by expert Demonrats and revolution will follow sooner. Meanwhile, our response to the GOP-E enablers should be: Rule or Ruin! They don't get our votes EVER AGAIN! If you hallucinate otherwise, you will find out just how wrong you are the hard way.

    If you think I or anyone else OWE the GOP-E our votes at election time, four million of us said otherwise last time. GOP-E candidate in 2016? How many will join actual conservatives in voting third party or boycotting? Another million? More? Willard is actually sending out feelers about 2016. Some enemies of our nation and of conservatism just don't get it! Go ahead and do it and see what happens! Third party voting or boycotting any GOP-E ridden race altogether are each well within our rights. If you want to vote for some quisling, feel free. That is YOUR right. As Finny has eloquently explained, when we vote (no matter the candidate) we vote FOR not AGAINST.

    Finally, spare me the nonsense that you favored many or all of the other Republican candidates until finally there was only Willard. If you voted for Willard, you are an enabler of conservatives, an enemy of the future (if any) of the Republican Party and an enemy of the future (if any) of our nation, as a result. That trumps your claim that I somehow voted for Obama.

    Of course, actual talent is necessary to publish successful comics, produce successful films, present stage performances or novels of excellence. To a large extent, the nihilists, leftists, and neo-Bolsheviks have dominated popular culture.

    Your solution is the ONLY antidote.

    My favorite countercultural movies that were verrrry well done include Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ which despite the absolute refusal of Hollweird cooperation or even tolerance was magnificently successful at the box office as well and the great fact about the movie on the business side was that Gibson directed it, produced it, oversaw distribution of it and did not have to share the vast profit with the usual gang of Hollywood suspects. In having God working through Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as the writer, Gibson was quite likely to succeed. The man has personal flaws as do we all and has fallen short of the glory of God as do we all. His cinematic achievement with this movie should earn him support in all things moral and should never be forgotten.

    Gibson also directed and starred in Braveheart which despite his adultery with the wife of the lavender crown prince (Edward II) had a raft of moral high points. That adultery did not occur since the lady in question (a French princess and daughter of King Philip the Fair) was a ten year old child living in France when William Wallace was executed. Edward III was her illegitimate son by a knight who was executed by Edward III upon attaining his majority and the throne.

    Another favorite was For Greater Glory about the Catholic revolution in Mexico in the 1920s and 1930s against the utterly evil regime of Mexican el presidente Plutarco Calles, an enemy of all religions. Peter O'Toole as a martyred pastor (one of his final roles), Andy Garcia as the previously atheist general who was the military leader of the revolution who became a Catholic. A great, true and seldom told story. During the final credits, the film shows actual footage of the execution by firing squad of the young Jesuit priest and martyr Miguel Pro who was condemned by a kangaroo court for the "crime" of saying Mass in the basement of a Mexico City home. The distribution of the film was severely restricted but it is available on DVD and well worth watching.

    Hollywood was once a force for good. Louis Mayer of MGM was approached by a "friend" who complained about all those wholesome MGM films and particularly the Andy Hardy movies. The "friend" urged Mayer to make movies that would accept adultery and other evils as "normal" and were "more fit for adults."

    Mayer was a Jew who came to the US as a refugee from Czarist Russia during the pogroms that resulted from the aborted revolution of 1905. Mayer told his "friend" that America and its people had taken him in, as a stranger, during his hour of greatest need and allowed him to become a very successful man making moral movies and that he would NEVER make movies that would harm the US or its people. Then he told his "friend" to get lost. We also need men who are good Jews like Louis Mayer.

    God bless you and yours!

    Stuart was undoubtedly a great man and a great cavalry commander. Would you really rate him over Nathan Bedford Forrest? Or in the modern mechanized cavalry George S. Patton, Jr.? They were both Southern by heritage. I believe that Forrest suffered a certain lack of stature among Confederate leaders because he lacked much formal education but few fought and led more capably and forcefully on the battlefield. If Stonewall Jackson had not died and he and Forrest had served under, the result at Gettysburg might well have been very different.

    In any event, Julianne Moore can take her silly impertinent Hollyweird nonsense and put it where the sun shineth not. Acting in a few movies does not make her fit to muck the stalls of Stuart's horses.

    You may well be right in this. IIRC, Ronaldus Maximus spent his early Hollywood years as a somewhat secular fellow who did not put religion at the center of his life. That may still have been true when he became governor. I don't know. I do know that he became a serious Christian at some point and the greatest POTUS of our lives thereafter.

    God may well have plans for Trump and the ability to deliver the graces to him to bring him much closer to his Creator. I am fond of reflecting that it is foolish to yearn for another (name your favorite dead folks) JP II, JP I, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa, etc. We won't get one. Each was unique and brought special talents to the table that were needed in their respective times and places.

    Likewise, there won't be another Albert Einstein, nor another Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, nor another Ronald Reagan. However, both in religious life and in secular pursuits, the God who created each of them and so many other magnificent people who have passed away other people in mind who will make as significant a mark, each in his or her own way.

    There will be great and yet flawed heroes as necessary from now right to the end of the battle of Armageddon. If God can convert a rich young powerful man named Saul who, for the Sanhedrin, martyred early Christians including his own cousin St. Stephen to become Paul, the greatest missionary of at least the early Church, then converting Trump's heart will be child's play for Him IF that is His plan.

    However bleak things may sometimes seem, we know the end of the story and its outcome. God sent a man named John in the late First Century to write the Apocalypse aka Revelations for our reassurance and to give us warning of the tribulations before Christ's final victory. As it is, by His stripes we have been healed.

    God bless you and yours, Rita!

    There are several candidates that I would prefer over Trump. Scott Walker and Ted Cruz come immediately to mind and are not alone. Nonetheless, it makes no sense to blame Trump for this jackass Cobb. When Reagan was publicly supported by prominent Birchers in a his first California governor’s race, he was grilled by the usual media suspects. Reagan answered: They chose me. I didn’t choose them. It’s a free country. Trump should follow his example or ignore this pipsqueak altogether.
