RightNation.US: Why Trump is Trumping the Rest - RightNation.US

Jump to content

-----
There is a reason why Trump is running away with it right now.

More than a decade ago Fox News, Talk Radio and Conservative web sites such as RightNation woke us Conservatives up and made us realize we weren't the only ones who believed as we did. There were actually others out in this great land of ours that held much of our same beliefs. While we weren’t clones and differed on some legs of Conservatism, we knew that we did not belong on the left side of the aisle despite what we might have once believed during our early years.

Once we were awake, we watched the GOP elites keep playing the same bait and switch games with us election after election. They kept singing to the choir during the primaries but once they won the party nomination and were running against the left, they suddenly turned left. Besides, we Conservatives were all extremists and embarrassing as all get out at their cocktail parties with the media elites.

Moderate after moderate, loss after loss, Obamacare and stealth Roberts, it all kept slapping us in the face. And still we kept electing them and giving them majorities in both houses of congress and many state governorships.

And yet with all of these powers they had said they needed in order to get things done, all they kept doing was getting Obama’s agenda passed. And don’t even get me started on Ryan. Not that I expected anything more from Romney’s running mate.

Speaking of presidential candidates, we watched our ‘conservative’ candidates in every election cycle get taken down like a game of whack-a-mole where every time one of ours rose in the polls, attacks would come out of the woodwork to where the final one standing was always the one the establishment had chosen originally. What a coincidence!

Which brings me to the reason I believe Trump is trumping all the rest. I believe it has to do with so many on the right not believing our guys or gals could stand up against the GOP elites so we need Trump and his bravado or whatever you want to call it to be able to withstand the arrows and all out assaults from the GOP powerbrokers.

While I am personally hoping that Cruz will save the day, I’ve gotten so used to losing I don’t really have my hopes up for much of anything. I still don’t trust Trump while at the same time appreciate him for changing the pace of the Mole. He knows how to take a hit, bounce right back up and throw any crazy punch of his own to where even if it’s something totally outrageous, he gets so much media attention that the noise of the massive attention seems to drown out what he actually said.

Besides who can trust the GOP anymore?

Elusively yours,

That's about my take on it too. Trump at least is fighting back, against the GOP Establishment, against the Democrats, and against the media, and he's winning. For that reason alone, I'm willing to give him a shot. I've completely abandoned the GOP. They're Democrat-lite. I'm hoping Trump or Cruz will rally enough people to force the GOP elite to join the Democrats and we can take back the Republican party, or to simply move into another party, give a few elections to the Democrats and let the GOP die. At this point, we've got nothing to lose.

The recent actions of the insipid turncoat Paul Ryan pretty much finished me off for the GOP. What next? Not sure....

Good blog, Ilja. It's true I'm no Republican (nor even conservative), but you're definitely hitting those nails squarely on the head. The GOP has nobody to blame but themselves for the rebellion going on in their ranks.

If you go back to the Sixties, seventies and early eighties and look at what the "elites" were saying about Goldwater and later Reagan.."He can't win in the primary...We need the seventies version of Romney because Reagan was going to get us into a nuclear war...or the "moderates" won't vote for him or...well basically the same line of gas their peddling now...Deja vu all over again.

I can't even give that a limp wrist bit of hope. I can however hope I'm wrong.

I'm more surprised by the surprise to Ryan's actions. Anyone who applies for a job with a twist of blackmail, well, his behavior is par for the course.

Exactly.

One thing I have gotten a kick out of was all of their well-paid political pundits constantly wearing egg on their faces for the first few months of the Trump trouncing after each time they declared but this outrageous statement is going to be the one to bring him down.

Yeah, I really do need to go back and read up on those years.

Disgusted with GOP spinelessness. Trump is saying what we hear around the water cooler (from non-liberals, that is). Some impractical, but always fire and brimstone. He doesn't care what we think, except as it helps him gain traction in the polls.

Will it equate to votes? Not mine. I'm still heavy in the Cruz camp. Of course, by the time Pennsylvania holds it's primary, it is largely irrelevant anyway HOW we vote.

A Doctor, A Lawyer, A Little Boy And A Priest
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and then he bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

John Mauldin relates the details of a conversation he had with John Boehner, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

At the :50 Maudlin describes Boehner telling him that Obama has,
“…balls made out of marshmallows…”

If that is true, why do we see Boehner continually backing down and rolling over while Obama stands firm and never compromises?

NEVER FORGET!

Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin’s long road home ended Saturday in a blaze of yellow ribbons, the silent tribute of people who lined the roads, and the respect of thousands more who filed past his coffin at a public visitation . . . “If four people showed up, that’s OK with me,” said Keith Maupin, the soldier’s father, as he took a mid-afternoon break outside the Civic Center, where many came up to him to shake his hand or give him a hug . . . Matt Maupin became the face of the war in Iraq for thousands here and across the country in April 2004, when an Arab TV station aired a tape showing the Union Township soldier kneeling and surrounded by masked men carrying automatic rifles . . .Four years and millions of prayers later, a tip from an Iraqi citizen led U.S. soldiers to the farm area northwest of Baghdad where Matt Maupin’s remains were found on March 20 . . .Scoutmaster David Bacon said the boys of Troop 511 had been well aware of the story of Matt Maupin and wanted to pay their own tribute.“I’ve talked to them many times about Matt,” said Bacon, whose cousin, Lance Cpl. David Kreuter, was killed in Iraq in 2005. “They understand it was the sacrifice of young men like Matt that gives us the freedom to meet every Monday night. There are places in the world where Boy Scouting is not allowed.” http://i147.photobuc.../3yqo3h0.gifPFC Keith Matthew MaupinCaptured in IraqApril 9, 2004

An Email From God?

I got this in an email today and though it doesn't say who wrote it, I don't doubt these things could have happened.'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL' You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I. I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK..I am ready to go.' I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night. I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said. 'Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.' I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered. I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them. I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan ... I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor. Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there. I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are 'ready to go.' I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
