Donald Trump is an Authoritarian Bully.

Press Updates:

Donald Trump pisses me off — even though I favor many of his positions:

I want the southern border sealed, and I want every last person in the United States illegally deported. I want employers hiring illegals arrested, tried and heavily fined or jailed. Period.

I want our vets treated with the respect they deserve; unlike Trump, however, I want to see the Veterans Administration shut down, with vets given access to universal unlimited health care.

I want our laws enforced, I want our Second Amendment respected, and I want the proverbial book thrown at anyone who commits a crime while carrying a gun.

On those things, Trump and I see eye to eye, and that’s why I find myself so conflicted – I don’t want to vote for him in November.

I detest bullies, and Donald Trump is a bully.

When I was in high school, there were guys  who just loved pushing me around…until I finally lost it and beat the crap out of one of them. I’ve hated bullies ever since.

Consider this headline: “Trump: Let’s face it, Ted Cruz trying to hide his Goldman Sachs loan is worse than Hillary”

Really, Donald? Here’s what AllahPundit had to offer:

“This is a smear, by the way. He’s seizing on the revelation last week that Cruz never disclosed a margin loan from Goldman Sachs, where his wife works, during his first Senate run. That’s true, sort of — he never disclosed it to the FEC, which Cruz blamed on afiling error.’ But it’s not true that he never disclosed the loan publicly.

Let me translate that for you: Trump is lying. Bullies lie.

“He’s saying this, by the way, at a moment when Clintonworld is under FBI investigation for possibly having traded government favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Democratic frontrunner is being scrutinized by federal law enforcement for public corruption and Trump wants you to believe that Cruz is arguably the shadier operator of the two.”

Trump is lying. Bullies lie.

Saul Alinsky’s Guide For Activists, RULE 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame. The real action is in the enemy’s reaction. The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.

Trump’s lie about Cruz’s margin loan is classic Rule 13 – the same tactic so often employed by the Marxists who now comprise at least a third of the Democratic Party. The same tactic, in fact, so often employed by President Barack Obama, the nation’s Bully-in-Chief.

Just as Obama’s bullying is been endorsed and employed by avid sycophants, so, too is Trump’s bullying endorsed and used by his avid supporters.

Fawning loyalty to Alinsky among some Trump supporters is evident on Twitter, where shots like this are common:

Cruz Smear #1
Cruz Smear #1

 Is there a link to any article documenting these charges? Of course not – Rule 13 doesn’t require honesty – it is enough simply to smear and duck.  Here’s another example:

Cruz Smear #2
Cruz Smear #2

 No citation, no links, nothing whatsoever to document the charge that Sen. Cruz is a “bought & paid for DC insider.” This is the sort of unadulterated horsepucky we’ve come to expect from progressives!

Is Ted Cruz an “amnesty lover”?

Cruz-03Does Senator Cruz support open borders? Here’s what he has to say:

Mr. Trump, on the other hand, clearly supports amnesty. Here’s the first clue:

Donald Trump's Amnesty Support
Donald Trump’s Amnesty Support

Senator Cruz explains Trump’s amnesty plan during an ABC interview:

“So Donald Trump’s position is once you deport them, it’s what’s called touchback. A lot of establishment Republicans had touchback,” Cruz said in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “Basically you make them fly back to their country for a minute, touch the ground, and then they come back with amnesty as citizens. Now, Donald is entitled to do that. He can advance that position, but he doesn’t get to pretend that it’s not amnesty if he’s legalizing 12 million people [who are] here illegally.”–Ted Cruz

Open borders? Pure Alinsky Rule 13.

Is Senator Cruz a Canadian citizen?

Cruz was born in Canada as a dual citizen, American and Canadian. Dual citizenship is common in Canada – just ask me; I’m a “duely” too. Senator Cruz, however, is no longer a Canadian citizen:

Ted Cruz is not a Canadian citizen
Ted Cruz is not a Canadian citizen

Canadian citizen? Pure Alinsky Rule 13.

Does Ted Cruz support amnesty?

Here’s what he has to say:

  • It’s not that we don’t know how to solve illegal immigration. What is missing is the political will to get it done. As President, Ted Cruz will do what he says. He will stop illegal immigration. He will build a wall that works, triple border security, and put in place the surveillance and biometric tracking to secure the border.
  • Ted Cruz will end Obama’s amnesty on day one, will end catch-and-release, increase deportations, stop sanctuary policies, and strengthen E-verify.
  • In order to protect our national security and serve American workers, he will suspend and audit H-1B visas and halt any increase in legal immigration so long as American unemployment remains unacceptably high.
  • Cruz led the fight in Congress to defeat the Gang of Eight amnesty bill, he has introduced strong legislation to stop illegal immigration, and he has outlined a detailed immigration plan to protect Americans.

 “Amnesty lover?” Pure Alinsky Rule 13.

America has lived with a bully in the White House since January, 2009. Do we really want another one?

Trump seems to delight in insulting his opponents, in violation of the GOP’s 11th Commandment (H/T to Tom Murse):

Reagan is often mistakenly given credit with coining the 11th commandment because he was a devout believer in it since first running for political office in California. Reagan wrote in the autobiography “An American Life:”

“The personal attacks against me during the primary finally became so heavy that the state Republican chairman, Gaylord Parkinson, postulated what he called the Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. It’s a rule I followed during that campaign and have ever since.” (Read more…)

Trump, unfortunately, shows no respect for his Republican opponents, as his steady stream of insults and innuendo has shown.

I don’t want such a man in the White House.

Ted Cruz, to his everlasting credit, told Mark Levin, “I’m Not Going Into The Mud With Donald Trump

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reacted to the recent attacks from his Republican presidential opponent Donald Trump yesterday in an interview with talk radio host Mark Levin.

I’m not going to respond in kind I am not going to attack Donald personally, I like him, I respect him, and I’m not going into the mud with personal insults and attacks.

Cruz asserted that the only reason political candidates decided to get personal was because they didn’t want to be challenged on the issues.

“They don’t want to talk about their own records, and so they try instead just to engage personal attacks,” he said.

Cruz reminded the audience that Trump argued for expanding Obamacare into socialized medicine and thought the Wall Street TARP bailouts were a “great idea.” He also pointed out that Trump was a supporter of President Obama’s stimulus program as well as an expansion of the ethanol mandate.


Jan. 30, 2016: CNN Anchor Admits Chilling Effect: Journalists Scared to Criticize Trump

This morning on CNN, Alisyn Camerota said that journalists are scared to criticize Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump continues to call Megyn Kelly names, he continues to tweet out, this is what he does, to journalists he isn’t happy with,” said Camerota.

“It is troubling, and of course, we’ve talked about this. It does have a chilling effect, ’cause you do watch your words more. You don’t want all of his Twitter followers to come at you with that Twitter hate.”

Is this arrogant, petulant, narcissistic bully really fit to assume the mantle of “the most powerful man in the world,” my friends?

Wasn’t Barack Obama, who also has a disgraceful track record of intimidating the media, particularly FOX, enough?


Jan. 26, 2016: Problem is, Trump is a bully (Tip o’ the hat to Nancy McAnally, who nails it in this American Thinker piece:

[Big snips] We are weary of feeling like victims of our own government and we are enraged, to put it mildly. So, here comes this knight in glitzy media armor, wild hair and all, billionaire Donald Trump, smelling the blood in the water. He’s tough, aggressive, is the center of the media spotlight and uses hyperaggressive rhetoric. He is here to save the day for us. Smart, adaptive guy that Trump is, he quickly flipped on most of his lifelong liberal policy positions so he could readily tap into our anger at seven years of abuse. He’s an intuitive opportunist. Narcissists focus with laser-like precision on their victims’ fears and weaknesses to manipulate them. Trump says he is here to rescue with his unmatched deal making to get things done. His theme is “Make America Great Again!” Rah, rah, rah! In fact, the other day he said he is better than Ronald Reagan.

Problem is, Trump is a bully and lacks consistency in his words and actions. He has a history of supporting liberal policies and candidates, lacks any sense of diplomacy, and has been part of many unethical and questionable business deals. He is emotionally unpredictable, volatile, and even unhinged at times.

Trump acts like a bratty young child, calling his highly accomplished opponents names: fat, ugly, very nasty, low-energy, mentally unstable, and more. His jokes include making despicable physical impressions of the disabled. When was the last time you saw this behavior — in the third grade? He assaults people in personal ways, not on policy differences. Yet, Trump is idolized.

With Trump, one minute when you are good graces, he is lavishing you with glowing accolades. The next minute, as in the case of Ted Cruz, he is irate because Cruz stepped onto his entitled turf. He carries out personal attacks of the lowest kind. His dramatic inconsistencies just don’t square for a rational thinking person. The problem is, his victim supporters are not rational. They are emotionally hooked on his red meat rhetoric after years of governmental abuse. What is scary is that they are relying on one bully to destroy the other.

With Trump’s narcissistic and self-grandiose approach, he tries to sell us on the fact that only he, “the Donald”, can fix this country’s mess and make America great again. Donald Trump is a hero in his own mind. Sadly, victim supporters in great numbers are buying it. What they fail to realize is that Trump will do more harm than good if he is given the opportunity.

Goodbye, Sweden – Sweden goes insane. #Multiculturalism #Islam #Muslims

Hi, I’m Pat Condell.

I don’t respect your beliefs and I don’t care if you’re offended.

Cheers.

Condell’s introduction to his own website certainly sets the stage for what follows – a brutally honest series of videos containing truths Europeans would rather ignore. Here are two of them, both dealing with the impact of unrestricted Muslim Hijra upon the people of Sweden – now the rape capital of the world:

2010-11-20: A Constitution for a Non-Existent People

“So the EU has been written into the constitution, foreigners may hold high office, and ethnic separateness will be officially promoted.”

2010-11-25: Scandalous constitution passed

The multiculturalism is from now constitutional. It is now imperative to financially support ethnic, cultural and religious groups with the taxpayers’ money. A disastrous policy is cemented.

The significance of the Swedish citizenship is undermined when foreigners are broadly placed on an equal footing with Swedish citizens and thus enjoy the same rights. On top of this there will no longer be any insistence on Swedish citizenship for positions of sensible nature, which implies that foreigners are allowed to have the positions that are structurally important for the society.

The only existing Swedish journalist that publishes critical texts of the regime, and therefore has to write under the pseudonym ofJulia Caesar, in spite of the fact that she is an experienced and well-renowned journalist with several published books, has commented on this:

“It feels like a long and evil nightmare that you just wish to wake up from. This just cannot be true!”

Islam 101: Islam 101 is meant to help people become better educated about the fundamentals of Islam and to help the more knowledgeable better convey the facts to others. Similarly, my book and documentary are meant to serve as concise explanations of the major moving parts of Islam and their implications for Western society. Islam 101 is a condensation of the book and documentary with the aim of lending clarity to the public understanding of Islam and of exposing the inadequacy of prevailing views. All should feel free to distribute and/or reproduce it.

Virtual President Bill Whittle Offers 7 Awesome Minutes of #GunSense!

In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the case for the Second Amendment self-evident. 

Gun ownership

Why should ordinary citizens own a gun?

Because owning a police officer is too expensive. Time and time again, statistics show that the that law enforcement arrives usually just in time, to draw the chalk outline around your body.

Why do some states have a mandatory waiting period, after purchasing a gun?

Some states, such as Illinois and others, have a mandatory “cooling off period” when purchasing a firearm. We do not support this. As a former Illinois resident, I can personally attest to the fact that nobody went back to retrieve their firearm after the mandatory wait, and said “I’m not mad anymore.” This is just another silly restriction that some liberal states impose, to create more useless restrictions.

Open carry / Concealed carry

Why do some states allow ordinary law abiding citizens to carry a firearm?

I say why not! The key word is law abiding. 49 of 50 states currently have legislation for citizens to train, qualify, and carry a firearm. As an American, our second amendment guarantees us this freedom, and we will fight to keep it.

Which is better? Open carry or concealed carry?

Ahhh, yes, the age old debate. Open carry is a deterrent. Concealed carry gives you the element of surprise. Given both options, I carry concealed, but that’s just my personal preference. There’s advantages and disadvantages to both. If you do open carry, you do have to be much more alert to your “personal space” and surroundings. We support both methods 100%.

Senator Paul Creates Top Ten Reasons #Obama is Unfit for Office

Presidential candidate Paul was not amused at presidential pimp Josh Rarely-Ernest’s attack on fellow GOP candidate Donald Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslim entry into the United States.

Trump’s call for a ban on Muslim entry, for those brain-dead politicians who loudly climbed on the Donald Trump is Hitler schtick, was not only 100% in conformation with existing law, but that law itself was passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by a Democratic president. I present 8(f) USC 1182 for your elucidation and chagrin:

Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president.

“Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Meanwhile, back at the Facebook Ranch, Senator Paul cuts Obama down a notch or three:

Yesterday the Obama White House had the nerve to say someone else was unqualified for office. After 5 years of acting like a King and ignoring our constitution, that takes a lot of nerve. Today I would like to put a mirror in front of the Obama White House and show them the top ten things that make HIM unqualified

1. Tried to take over 1/6 of economy in Obamacare, wrecked the system and hurt patients and taxpayers

2. Thinks an executive order is legislation and how you make law

3. Fought an undeclared, unconstitutional war in Libya, turned it into jihadist wonderland

4. Fighting an undeclared, unconstitutional war in Syria, trying to put ISIS in Damascus

5. Signed into law the indefinite detention of American citizens

6. His copy of the bill of rights obviously goes from 1 to 2, skipping 2nd amendment

7. Court ruled his NSA spying on every American was illegal

8. He has added more debt than anyone in history

9. Appointed an attorney general who thinks speech against Muslims is a bigger threat than terrorism

10. EPA rules by executive FIAT trying to kill an entire American industry and way of life (coal).]

Good for you, Senator Paul – it’s about time someone told it like it is.

Egyptian TV host’s searing rant against #Obama, “Ally of Terrorists”

Egyptian TV Host Ahmed Moussa on California Terror Attack: Americans Should Stick Obama on an Impalement Rod (Transcript below)

I found this video disturbing. Not because I want Obama impaled (although the image is enticing), but because this TV host reaches millions of Middle Eastern viewers who may well share his indignation at our feckless President. Moussa’s mouth has gotten him into trouble in the past, and is believed by some to be a shill for the Egyptian government of Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

Is this what Barack Obama has done to America’s reputation throughout the world?

Transcript

You should beware not to raise a lion, or it will devour you. You should never think…It was America that raised and funded terrorism.  We’ve said to them a hundred times, a million times, and we are still saying:

America will pay the price in a way it cannot even imagine.

Obama the liar, the ally of the terrorists…I call him a liar. He’s a liar! He is the ally of the terrorists. This Obama deserves to stand trial.

If the American people… By the way, the American people is our friend. We are not against the American people, who are very respectful. They love Egypt very much. They teach Egyptian Pharaonic history in their schools. We have no problem whatsoever with the American people.

But I would like the Congress to send Obama to the guillotine, because three days before the (San Bernardino) terror attack… The attack was on Wednesday. On Tuesday or on Monday, he appeared and lied, like he always does, that liar.

All the allies of terrorism are liars.

He said, “There is no threat to American citizens.” It was as if he was trying to cover… Today, I suspect that Obama is connected to the terrorists who carried out the attack. When he says something like this, he numbs the security agencies, the military and the intelligence agencies.

If this had happened in a respectful country, Obama would have been placed on trial.

The US Congress should ask: How come you said that according to your information, no terrorist attack was imminent?

(Obama  said) “Our intelligence agencies have no information of real threats against citizens on our soil.” Less than 72 hours later, a terror attack took place.  Yes, today you concluded that it was (terrorism), on the basis of information and surveillance.

What is the worthy punishment? He should be sat on an impalement rod. They should take Obama and stick him on an Impalement Rod.  That is what they would do in a respectful country.

If Obama had any courage and dignity – which he has not – he would have said: “I resign today to face trial.” This is how it’s done in respectful countries.

Just another fun-loving, Bitter-clinging, gun loving right wing extremist…
