By Kelleigh Nelson:
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. — Proverbs 29:2
When one goes for a job interview, one does not talk about how horrible your former/present employer was/is, but rather, you tell about what you have accomplished for the company, and what you can bring to your new employer. You would think the men/women running for president would know that, but obviously they don’t.
Rather than blasting their fellow candidates, they should have told just exactly what they can do for the country and how they’d lead America. I wonder if all these elitists have been told to attack Trump no matter what. Even so, they have made fools of themselves. Trump has fired back at them, and he keeps scoring points.
Rick Perry and Lindsey Graham on Trump
Rick Perry and Lindsey Graham hit Donald Trump very hard. Here’s Perry’s speech against Trump, comparing Trump to a cancer. Perry has now dropped out of the race and Lindsey Graham (who wants us to take in Syrian Refugees) is at the bottom of the polls. Graham actually called Trump a complete idiot, and said he’d beat Trump’s brains out in South Carolina. Link Since Trump has made himself $10 billion, I highly doubt he’s an idiot. Poor Graham…does anyone really like this man?
Ben Carson on Trump
Ben Carson was in Anaheim, California giving a speech, and a reporter asked him to differentiate himself from his fellow non-establishment candidates. “I’ve realized where my success has come from, and I don’t in any way deny my faith in God,” Carson said. “And I think that is the big difference.” Carson also said he does not get the sense that faith is a major part of Trump’s life. “I haven’t seen it,” he said. The former neurosurgeon quoted one of his favorite Bible passages – Proverbs 22:4: “By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life,” adding, “that’s a very big part of who I am. I don’t get that impression [from Trump], maybe I’m wrong but I don’t get that,” said Carson.
Trump responded by tweeting:
Earlier this month, Trump said of Carson, “I like Ben a lot. He’s a good guy,” but Carson’s remarks clearly stirred anger in the billionaire candidate. He insisted he was only discussing Carson because he was questioning Trump’s faith. “I happen to be a great believer in God and a great believer in the Bible.”
My question to Ben Carson is why he even had to mention Donald Trump at all…unless again, they’ve all been told to attack Trump at every opportunity, or they’re so jealous, they all are striving to take Donald down.
Rand Paul on Trump
Apparently Rand Paul was on Hannity’s show and couldn’t stop disparaging Donald Trump. Hannity tried to steer the conversation in another area, but Rand just kept going on about Trump. Now, Rand’s put out anti-Trump ads where Trump basically says he identifies as a Democrat, and that the economy does better under Democrats. However, it doesn’t show to whom he was speaking or when. One must always remember that Trump is a businessman who has to butter his bread on both sides. I know this to be true from having worked as Marketing and Communications Manager for a Fortune 100 company.
Trump swatted back at Rand saying, “He’s failing in the polls, he’s weak on the military, and I actually think he’s a far better doctor than he is a senator. He’s a mess, there’s no question about it.”
Willard Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney attacked real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump telling a CNN reporter he thinks Trump’s remarks on illegal immigrants were a “severe error.” Romney hosted a slumber party one recent weekend for two of the 2016 GOP presidential candidates, Senator Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Then Rubio got in on slamming Trump. “Trump’s comments are not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive,” Rubio said. “Our next president needs to be someone who brings Americans together – not someone who continues to divide. Our broken immigration system is something that needs to be solved, and comments like this move us further from – not closer to – a solution. We need leaders who offer serious solutions to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system.”
As if right on cue, after Romney and Rubio, Bush joined the coordinated parade of establishment Republicans attacking Trump. The escalation comes as the Bush campaign has determined they believe there is a strategic benefit in attacking Trump, potentially helping their candidate shore up support on his vulnerable right flank. The campaign had previously hoped to ignore Trump’s rise throughout the summer.
“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think,” Bush said in New Hampshire. “No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders – everybody has a belief that we should control our borders. But to make these extraordinarily ugly kind of comments is not reflective of the Republican Party. Trump is wrong on this.” Read more on this at Breitbart.
More and more people are saying Beck has lost it, he’s in a nose dive, he’s gone over the cliff. First he came out and claimed he’d save more Christians from Syria than Schindler saved Jewish people during WWII. Link
He said, “I asked if my audience could raise $10 million before Christmas to bring the Christians in from Syria,” Beck explained. “We will vet them ourselves. We have former CIA people that are going over and they’re vetting everybody right now. We can save more people by Christmas than Oscar Schindler saved. Okay? Well, what are you going to do with them? What are you going to do with them? How are you going to get them in here? State Department won’t let them in. Really? Because I know some bridges over a river in Texas that doesn’t seem to matter. It doesn’t seem to matter. And if they want to say, ‘Now you can’t bring those people in, now you can’t, that’s somehow illegal, we’ll put you in jail’ – I will so gladly grace a jail for the justice cause of saving people’s lives. I don’t need your permission at all to do the right thing! That’s who we need to be now! Forget about Washington! You don’t need permission to do the right thing.”
Now he’s having a meltdown over Donald Trump’s popularity which has reached it’s critical point. Glenn Beck has gone full progressive playing the race card with the tea party. According to Glenn Beck, if you are a tea party member and support Donald Trump, you must be a racist. Beck claims that if you are/were a tea party person who supports Trump then your lack of support for Obama was because he was black. Link
Thirdly, Beck is not only for a Constitutional Convention, he is also for amnesty. Beck was bashing Americans opposed to illegal immigration, decrying partisan politics, and positioning himself toward the center just as he was reportedly trying to strike a deal to get his programming on CNN. Link
I don’t know who Beck is taking direction from, but he is definitely losing his audience, and his continual attacks against Trump have been the main reason.
Club for Growth
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is demanding that Club for Growth (CfG) president David McIntosh resign his position. Why? Because before McIntosh criticized Trump’s candidacy for the White House, he begged Trump for a million dollars. Here’s CfG’s request letter.
McIntosh, Trump charges, dismissed him as “not a serious candidate” after Trump declined to donate $1 million to his group. “I am appalled by Mr. McIntosh’s shameless pandering and blatant shakedown attempt, exposing him and the CfG as a fraud,” said Trump. Now CfG is going for Trump’s throat. Link Link Link
So, let’s take a look at just who is involved with and who funds Club for Growth.
Stephen Moore was the founder of Club for Growth, and he is now chief economist at the Heritage Foundation and was the former Wall Street Journal editorial writer who championed tax cuts. WSJ is owned by CFR member Rupert Murdoch and Saudi Prince, Alwaleed bin Talal who owns 7%. Moore has been paid to promote policies for the Koch funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP), owned by David Koch, who is a member of the globalist Aspen Institute. ( Please see Part 14 of my series for information on the leftist Koch brothers). Aspen Institute’s former director was none other than Maurice Strong, of UN Agenda 21 fame. Moore is also an American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) “scholar” as of 2011. On August 4th, 2011, he spoke at a Shell Oil-sponsored plenary session of the 38th Annual ALEC Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, along with fellow ALEC “scholar” Arthur B. Laffer. ALEC has long been a proponent of destroying our Constitution. Link
CfG’s partners and allies include the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. Peterson is chairman emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations and former chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Another ally is the US Chamber of Commerce, who is so behind the invasion of illegal aliens on our southern borders. [Link] See Erica Carle’s short three-part article, “Who is in Charge of the New World Order?” about the Chamber of Commerce.
Besides the CFR and Chamber control, CfG has three very frightening goals, first is “School Choice,” which actually eliminates choice because once one penny of tax money goes to a private, religious, or home schooled student, all the federal government regulations go with it.
Secondly CfG wants to “replace the tax code with a flat or Fair Tax.” Reagan tried a flat tax when he was president and it was soundly rejected. The Fair Tax (video)is not what many people believe it is, but it also requires a Constitutional Convention according to Herman Cain, Libertarian Neal Boortz, and John Linder.
“Free trade” is the third problem. We have counterfeit regulated regional trade agreements which have cost us not only millions of jobs, but also our sovereignty. Please note that Ted Cruz was for fast tracking for Obama’s TPP trade deal.
CfG also wants to add a balanced budget amendment, which really is not a solution to our financial problems, as it will legalize the unconstitutional spending the Congress is doing, as well as allowing them to raise taxes every time their budget doesn’t balance. Link Link Link
The left hates Trump, the right hates Trump, the GOP and DNC candidates hate Trump, Fox News hates Trump, CNN hates Trump, the entire MSM hates Trump, and the American people still like him. Why? Because he’s filling a void, he’s saying the things we say to each other, he’s not afraid to speak his mind, and bottom line, he’s not a DC politician. Unlike Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Bobby Jindal, Trump is totally eligible to be the President of the United States. Read Devvy Kidd’s article on why Jindal, Cruz and Rubio are ineligible, and why they all had to be declared eligible. Link
Love or hate him, Trump’s a force to be reckoned with, and he’s shaking up the status quo, which is an absolutely delightful thing to watch.
