THE TRUMP TRAIN

Let me begin by saying I want Killary as President as much as I want cancer. And I fully intend to vote for Trump to make sure that doesn’t happen……but I’ve been desperately looking for a reason to not to need sedation to vote for Trump.

I looked hopefully to the Convention for validation that I could feel good about voting for Trump. I REALLY want to believe he is what all you Trumpeters believe he is.

The first day of the Convention I loved. I loved Melania Trump’s speech and Sheriff Clarke, Marcus Lutrell and the Benghazi heroes. Later, I loved Don Jr’s speech and Ben Carson’s and Rudy’s. The first few days I was feeling hopeful. Today I’m exhausted, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, ideologically and every other way I can think of. Last night Ivanka Trump came out. She is beautiful, intelligent, accomplished, poised…. a truly lovely young woman. She spoke lovingly about her Dad and then she said she wasn’t a Republican or a Democrat, that she voted her conscience (Isn’t that what Cruz got booed for saying?). She then went on to say how she’d fight for affordable childcare and pay equality. I thought I was at the Democrat Convention. Then Trump gave his acceptance speech and said everything every “strong man” has said in history…..and that has never ended well. I have said all my life, when you hear someone say they are the only one who has the answers….RUN!!

History has shown us when people are afraid they want a strong man to take over and fix things but history has also shown us those strong men have led to tyranny. There was no mention of the Constitution or limited government last night. In fact Trump said he’d give student loan relief (with what money? And why should we pay for someone’s irresponsible decision?). Recently he said he didn’t care if the GOP kept the majority in Congress. How does he think he can “fix” anything if Congress stands in his way?

But what really concerns me is his very obvious vindictiveness and need to retaliate. I thought Obama’s vindictiveness was scary but it was mostly hidden. Trump’s is right out there. Regardless of how you feel about Ted Cruz, Trump’s interview this morning on CNN was vindictive and childish. He won, he’s the candidate, why is he trashing Cruz and his father AGAIN instead of talking about his plans or Clinton? And please, don’t anyone tell me Cruz should have taken the “high ground” and endorsed Trump. Or that Cruz didn’t honor his pledge. He pledged to “support” the candidate, NOT to “endorse” and Trump said he wouldn’t honor his pledge either if he wasn’t treated fairly. Trump doesn’t have a high ground. Trump slandered Cruz’s father. I’ve met Ted’s father several times and spent time with him. I spent three days in Mississippi with him and he is a kind, gentle man. What’s happened to us that we don’t find that despicable?

But what I’m most heartbroken about is what I’ve learned about what I thought was “my side”. People I’ve trusted and fought side by side with for the last 8 years now call me names. People I thought believed in constitutionally limited government don’t seem to care if Trump uses a pen and a phone as long as their guy is doing it. I can’t listen to Hannity or Laura Ingram or Ann Coulter anymore and not because they support Trump, but because they are so happily dancing on the graves of those who were not Trump supporters.

Believe me I hope and PRAY I’m wrong and if I am, I’ll be the first to admit it. Unlike people who say, better the evil you know than the evil you don’t know, I’ll take my chances with the evil I don’t know because I could be wrong. We KNOW Killary will take our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights and pack the courts with Liberal judges who will rubber stamp every Liberal idea….the Constitution be damned. We know she will sign every UN treaty that relinquishes our sovereignty.

I will vote for Trump but please don’t ask me to be happy about it.

    I am hoping he hires an advisor who isn’t afraid to stand up to him and set him straight. He has been a bully his entire life–I can just see him as the dweeby fat kit, pants up to his armpits, pocket protectors everywhere, standing there sniffing his fingers while hoarding all his toys–the BEST ones of course because that’s what his father bought for him (probably to make up for the other kids never wanting Little Donald on their team). The one saving grace is that his children mostly did not learn their father’s techniques on “how to ‘win’ friends.” They seem fairly competent, fair-minded individuals who may not understand what pay equality means. (I mean, if pay equality were an issue, why aren’t businesses hiring nothing but women? Certainly seems to be the cheaper way to go). Anyway, if Donald’s chief of staff is a strong person and one that he trusts–and that person understands the constitution and limits of the office of President–we’ll not see a wild child sneering with his phone and his pen and jamming a lot of big government crap down our throats. The person will be able to guide Donald “to the right” and fix things in this country. I’m praying for that very thing to happen ever since it was obvious that Trump would be the nominee.

  2. Jack says:

    This may be the finest article you have written over the years. (If you don’t want to be called names, I suggest you lose the “Killary” labels–they lower your legitimacy)

    We both recognize Trump would be a disaster if he is elected. Voting for him is voting for WW3, a 20th century-like depression–only this time on a global scale and the USA in chaos. Look at the geography and topography of the southern border. It is impossible to build a fence. So, that will never happen.

    Whether or not you agree with proven climate change science, Trump sides with the Fox News/uneducated electorate and incredibly, denies facts that cannot be refuted.

    I think it might be better for you to bite your tongue and hold your breath and either not vote or vote for Hillary (she will only be in office for four years) and the world will be much safer with her than the bombastic policies of Donald Trump.

  3. I don’t know where to begin. I would never vote for Killary if Satan, himself, were her opponent (and he may be). I HAVE seen the geography of the Southern border and yes, we can build a fence. We’ve ALREADY approved one, it just hasn’t been built. And you couldn’t be more wrong about “proven” climate change science. The GW Alarmists have proven nothing. I could flood you with information from Noble Prize winners and thousands of other scientists that disagree. At this moment my organization is trying to get two Alarmists to debate two Skeptics and the Alarmists refuse. The Skeptics are ready and willing to debate, it’s the Alarmists who won’t because they can’t. And now we have the government trying to make it illegal to be a skeptic. That ought to scare the daylights out of you. Science is based on skepticism. Anytime a person or a group says their’s is the ONLY answer and you shouldn’t even question it, it’s BS!

    The MAIN reason I will vote for Trump is that he’ll stop the war on energy. You know, the LIFE’S BLOOD of the economy!

  4. Jack says:

    Your article was about how you would reluctantly vote for Trump and how those you admired on Fox have disappointed you. It was not exclusively about climate change.

    There are two ways the planet/world can end. One is by electing Trump as president…who will shun our allies, create chaos in our economy, and possibly start World War 3.

    The other way our planet will end is global climate change. (But I know we disagree on that fact) Either way, a vote for Trump is most probably a vote for the end of the planet as we know it.

    Hillary will be POTUS for only four years. Probably Paul Ryan will get elected in 2020. Maybe it is time to swallow your pride and do the right thing. We both can hold our collective breaths for only 4 years.

    • Gary Aminoff says:

      I would rather take my chances with Trump than Hillary. Hillary can do a LOT of damage in four years. The country might not be recoverable. Trump was not my first, nor my fifth choice for President, but he is surrounding himself with responsible people. He will not destroy the planet. He is wise enough to seek counsel before making important decisions. No. He isn’t a conservative, nor a constitutionalist, but, then again, neither is Hillary. But Mike Pence is. I would never willingly turn our government over to the Democrats. And, don’t worry about climate change. That isn’t going to destroy the planet either.

      • Jack says:

        Some “real facts” huh? You send me some unknown blog that begins: “A highly qualified scientist, Roy Warren Spencer, Ph.D., has prepared a paper which puts forth facts relating to global warming/cooling (climate change).” What exactly is a “highly qualified scientist? From where did this person get his/her education and how many white papers has he/she written and where can I find them?

        Here are the actual facts sir. I suggest you read them and consider what is fact compared to opinion in the future. http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

        You have a nice life!

      • Gary Aminoff says:

        Here are his qualifications. I would say he was pretty qualified:

        Roy Warren Spencer, Ph.D., is a meteorologist,
        principal research scientist at the University
        of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), and the U.S.
        Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave
        Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-E) on NASA’s Aqua
        satellite. Spencer also served as senior scientist for
        climate studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight
        Center, and is known for his satellite-based temperature
        monitoring work, for which he was awarded the American
        Meteorological Society’s Special Award.

        Spencer received a B.S. in atmospheric sciences from the University
        of Michigan in 1978 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in meteorology from the
        University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1980 and 1982. He then worked
        for two years as a research scientist in the Space Science and Engineering
        Center at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and later joined
        NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center as a visiting scientist in 1984.
        After leaving NASA in 2001, Spencer attained his current position at
        UAH and continued his work for NASA’s Aqua satellite, a position he
        has held since 1994.

        Spencer has been a member of several science teams: the Tropical
        Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Space Station Accommodations
        Analysis Study Team, Science Steering Group for TRMM, TOVS
        Pathfinder Working Group, NASA Headquarters Earth Science and
        Applications Advisory Subcommittee, and two National Research
        Council (NRC) study panels.

        He is also on the board of advisors of the Cornwall Alliance for the
        Stewardship of Creation. Spencer’s research work is funded by NASA,
        NOAA, DOE and the DOT.

    • I doubt we can survive Hillary. She will pack the courts with judges who will legislate from the bench and a new administration can’t do anything about it. She will take our guns and being in so many illegal aliens that the Democrats will have a permanent majority forever.

      No, the Democrat party has moved SO far left I would never vote for one. Demi’s are voting communists into office. They are insane.

      • Jack says:

        The president has no power to repeal a constitutional amendment (including the 2nd Amendment), or even to participate in its repeal. That would take a vote of 2/3 of the members of each house of Congress and approval of 3/4 of the state legislatures. Even if Hillary Clinton wanted to repeal the Second Amendment, she cannot do it. Such discussion is just silly.

        There is a strong possibility Allen West may jump in according to Steve King of Iowa…but it’s just conjecture at this point.

  5. Jack says:

    If you are talking about the Supreme Court, Hillary will not appoint any judges during her 4 years as POTUS. Ginsberg refuses to step down and Thomas staunchly will stay until a Conservative president is elected in 2020. The others are too young or are too liberal to call it quits.

    It is impossible for anyone to take away our guns. The logistics of that are impossible. Imagine armed soldiers going to each and every home, apartment, condo…etc. searching for our guns. That will never happen.

    So, that leads us back to your article. Is Trump really capable of leading this country? I think we both agree he is not. The consequences of him in the White House should scare even the most extreme Conservatives.

    • There is nothing you can teach Gary or myself about Climate Change. We are members of an organization that brings scientists and world leaders here to speak on the subject.

    • Clinton certainly WILL appoint Justices. There is a vacant seat RIGHT NOW. Apparently, you don’t realize it hasn’t been filled. She will appoint a VERY Liberal Justice and that will make it a 5-4 Liberal SCOTUS. You can forget about the Constitution being followed then.

      Clinton doesn’t need to repeal the 2nd Amendment. She will just use EO’s to make it impossible to carry a gun or buy one. Obama is already forcing banks not to do business with gun manufacturers and dealers. And the SCOTUS will back her up.

      California has already made it very hard to own or use a gun. You need a background check just to buy ammunition.

      Sorry, no, the consequences of a Clinton presidency scares even most democrats.

      Don’t bother replying. This conversation is over.

  6. What planet are you living on? It’s likely she will appoint two or three. There is an empty seat AT THE MOMENT, or did you forget that. That seat pushes it to a 5/4 Liberal bias. Ginsberg could die in the next four years. She can hardly stay awake for ten minutes now. And you are forgetting about Breyer. But those aren’t the only courts she will pack. The federal courts are just as important. Obama has already packed many of them with judges who completely disregard the Constitution.

    It’s NOT impossible to take away our guns. Look at California. And Obama’s “choke point”. the government it pressuring banks to not do business with gun dealers or manufacturers. Clinton said she would go after manufacturers. In California now you have to have a background check to buy ammo and can only buy a certain amount. My ex-husband can’t give his hunting rifles (he’s an avid hunter who is too old to hunt anymore) to his grandsons. No one can sell a gun to a friend without going through aa gun dealer. There are MANY ways they can take our guns…..and ARE! Of course, all they are really doing is making criminals out of law abiding citizens. But what a good excuse to prosecute political opponents.

    Is he capable? My dog is capable if he was surrounded by people like Pence. The one thing I don’t believe Trump is and that is a global government fan. Clinton’s are and so are the Bushes. He WILL stop the war on energy and that ALONE is reason to vote for him.

  7. Jack says:

    I think it is time all of us take a deep breath and get back to the roots of Conservatism. Trump is dangerous and an unknown quantity. Let’s listen to the party’s elders: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/09/us/politics/national-security-gop-donald-trump.html?action=click&contentCollection=Politics&module=RelatedCoverage&region=EndOfArticle&pgtype=article

    Hillary will last for only 4 years.

    • How do you get back to Conservatism by voting for Hillary? And no, Hillary won’t last for 4 years. She will leave the borders WIDE open and bring in 500 times more Muslims. That will change our demographics permanently to mostly poor, under educated minorities that will vote Democrat. We will never have another Republican in the White House, let alone a Conservative.

      You keep ignoring that she will also nominate two or more Justices to the SCOTUS as well as Federal judges across the nation that will rubber stamp her unConstitutional policies.

      If Trump does only a few of the things he says he’s going to do, it will improve our lives. Hillary WILL make things worse.

  8. joanncedar says:

    How in the world do we put a man in the Oval Office who thinks NATO is a shopping mall where the tenants aren’t paying enough rent to the U.S. landlord?

    NATO is not a shopping mall; it is a strategic alliance that won the Cold War, keeps Europe a stable trading partner for U.S. companies and prevents every European country — particularly Germany — from getting their own nukes to counterbalance Russia, by sheltering them all under America’s nuclear umbrella.

    How do we put in the Oval Office a man who does not know enough “beef” about key policies to finish a two-minute answer on any issue without the hamburger helper of bluster, insults and repetition?

    How do we put in the Oval Office a man who suggests that the recent spate of cyberattacks — which any senior U.S. intelligence official will tell you came without question from Russia — might not have come from Russia but could have been done by “somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds”?

    How do we put in the Oval Office a man who boasts that he tries to pay zero federal taxes but then complains that our airports and roads are falling apart and there is not enough money for our veterans?

    How do we put in the Oval Office a man who claims he was against the Iraq war, because he said he privately told that to his pal Sean Hannity of Fox News — even though he publicly supported the war when it began. Trump is so obsessed with proving his infallibility that he missed scoring an easy debate point for himself by saying, “Yes, I supported the Iraq war as a citizen, but Hillary voted for it as a senator when she had access to the intelligence and her job was to make the right judgment.”

    How do we put in the Oval Office someone who says we should not have gone into Iraq, but since we did, “we should have taken the oil — ISIS would not have been able to form … because the oil was their primary source of income.”

    • How do we put in office a woman who put our country at RISK by putting classified intelligence on an unsecured private server.

      How do we put in office a woman who ignored HUNDREDS of requests from a friend and Ambassador for more security and then left him and other Americans to DIE in Benghazi for POLITICAL reasons. We don’t leave Americans to die. And WORSE LIED to the families of the victims over the coffins of their loved ones. AND brought an Iman (although none of the victims were Muslim) whose “prayer” was to damn the victims to hell. THEN lied to the American public as well.

      How can we put a woman in office who has so little regard for the Constitution that she will take our FIRST AND SECOND Amensdments from us by any means possible. In the most dangerous world in my lifetime she wants to leave law abiding citizens vulnerable to being killed while buying a lipstick at the mall, running in a marathon or partying at a club.

      How can we put a woman in office who just called ALL OF US racists? Especially in the least racist country in the world. Who supports Federalizing Police forces. The results would be similar to the results of the Department of Education on our schools.

      How can we put in office a woman who spent her time as Secretary of State selling influence to our enemies for her OWN personal gain. Who completely destabilized the Middle East that resulted in the rise of ISIS, terrorism IN OUR COUNTRY and the obliteration of Christians and Christianity in the region.

      How can we put in office a woman who LIED about sending and receiving classified information via unsecured email. FBI director Comby said they DID find classified information she sent and received.

      How can we put in office a woman who will drive more businesses and jobs from America by increasing the ALREADY highest business taxes in the world. A woman who is a flat out communist who wants to FORCE businesses to “share” their profits…..which would result in businesses not being able to grow, hire more employees and develope more products.

      How can we put in office a woman who will double down on the war on energy (THE LIFES BLOOD OF THE ECONOMY) and drive the cost of energy to the point people won’t be able to heat or cool their homes or fill their cars. “Green energy” isn’t capable of replacing fossil fuels and destroys MORE jobs that it creates.

      How can we put in office a woman who promises “debt free college” that would require the rest of us to pay for it when we are $20 TRILLION in debt. A woman who completely ignores that we HAVE NO MONEY for her social engineering.

      How can we put in office a woman who spent 8 years in the WH supposedly being co-President, 4 years as Senator and 4 years as Sec. Of State who certainly had the opportunity to do all the things she is proposing to do but didn’t do them then. A woman who knows the financial meltdown was caused by HER husband’s expansion of the Neighborhood Reinestment Act that required banks to make sub-prime mortgages to low income families who couldn’t pay them back. Then she tries to blame it on Reagan’s tax cuts. HELLO! The 80’s are calling, they want their Progressive talking points back.

      How can we put in office a woman who has never created a job, made a payroll, had to deal with government regulations that add costs, delays and generally hamper progress, and think she knows how to fix the economy.

      How can we put a woman in office who won’t secure our borders when our country has never been in more danger. When terrorist acts committed by Islamists are increasing daily she plans to increase the number of Islamist refugees. When Islam TELLS us they want Islam to be the only religion in the world and Sharia the old law, she will appoint more Islamists to sensitive government jobs.

      How can we put in office a woman who will continue Obama’s policies of ceding more and more of America’s sovereignty to the United Nations.

      Trump may be the second worst candidate for President to ever run, but he hasn’t committed treason, he’s made his fortune in real estate NOT selling influence to our enemies. He will not pit Blacks against Whites. He will not pack the courts with Jdges that will legislate from the bench and ignore the Constitution. He’s not a communist, he won’t punish the successful and reward those not willing to try. He will stop the suicidal influx of people incompatable with our culture, traditions and rule of law, who hate us and whose religion calls for our death. And he won’t take our guns.

  9. So Matthew didn’t turn out to be any worse than any other hurricane in history. Everyone agrees there is climate change. The climate changes all the time. It has since the beginning of time and would continue to change if man never existed. If man has ANY effect, it is minimal. CO2 is only a little more than 3% of what is called “greenhouse gases” and man only contributes a little over 2% to that 3%. If every country did EVERYTHING the Paris climate treaty calls for (and they won’t) it would only reduce (MAYBE) temperature 0.05 C. You’d destroy our economy, do with out cars, air conditioning, etc to reduce temperature 0.05 C? You’d go back to a pre-industrialized world? Really? Not me. What mystifies me is how people believe man is the problem when NONE of the predictions have happened and NONE of the computer models have been close to what is happening. http://principia-scientific.org/ice-growing-poles-global-warming-theories-implode/
