A Prayer Need be on Every Trump Supporter’s Lips

 

If one were to take a poll of answers of what prayer and number one concern should preoccupy every Donald Trump supporter’s lips and minds, they would get a wide and varied plethora of answers. Many would say their concern and prayer would focus on his being able to focus on the game plan and path laid out by his handlers and advisors. Others would pray for him to develop discipline as that is the most apparent trait of which Donald Trump has a deficiency. Then there is the general wish for him to stay on message of exclaiming Hillary Clinton’s numerous short-comings. There are those who want the e-mails in slot one with others wanting Benghazi to lead the list while others want the financial shenanigans and the Clinton Foundation misadventures. Some want that she sold State Department and other favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation or to her campaign funds and related 501C NGO’s, to be broadcast at every turn. Others simply want her to be pressed by Donald Trump in the remaining debates forcing her to exhibit the nasty temperament she tries so hard to conceal to be forced out on the stage of those world broadcasts. Almost all of these prayers and concerns focus on Donald Trump proving that Hillary is not fit for the office while exhibiting his qualities to be President. Believe it or not, all of these concerns or prayers miss what probably could be the single most important item, Hillary’s health and other problems remaining contained long enough for her to reach Election Day still on the ballot.

 

The problem comes for Donald Trump is that he and Hillary Clinton both have monstrous negatives with groups of the population that would never have voted for any Democrat or Republican. These people are not the problem for either candidate because diehard Democrats disgusted over Donald Trump on the ballot and similarly dedicated Republicans reviled by Hillary Clinton are all equally of no concern to either candidate. Now Democrats who are fighting their conscience in order to vote for Hillary Clinton and Republicans fighting their revulsion to vote for Donald Trump are very important as are those who are choosing third party or even voting across their party line and supporting the other major candidate are of paramount importance to both candidates. These are the voters who will be deciding this election and may even bring some surprises in any purple state and potentially even solid blue and red states. This means that both candidates are fortunate that their opponent also has a similar difficulty in retaining their party’s support. With both candidates facing a challenge in getting out their party vote, as many in each party are less than enthused over their party’s candidate, it will come down to which candidate gets their supporters to the polls and possibly gets sufficient disgusted members of their opponent’s party to the polls to vote for the opposing party. There is one more item which will have an effect one way or potentially the other; and that is Hillary Clinton’s health. So, what are the signs?

 

First Debate with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

First Debate with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

 

Well, Hillary Clinton completely collapsed at a 911 memorial ceremony. The claims that she had been suffering from pneumonia leaves other suspicions. Her smiling and almost chatty disposition and apparent robotic-like movements have left rumors that Hillary had been filled with questionable medications or stimulants to allow her to make it through the ninety-minute debate last Monday. That smile which gave the appearance of the smile worn by The Joker in the Batman movies simply fed suspicions as to what ailment of afflictions Hillary Clinton suffers. Those who continue to believe that Hillary Clinton is the next best thing to the coming of a Messiah, she has no problems and her recovery from pneumonia was nothing less than more proof of her monumental and near godlike recuperative powers. The collapse, coughing and lack of appearances including refusing media access in any unscripted scenario such as answering questions after any appearance simply added fuel to the rumors of the problems causing Hillary to avoid public appearances. Hillary has even held to a sparse number of campaign appearances presumably because she was in debate preparations, apparently for well over a month. Who knew Donald Trump might pose such a challenge for the presumably overly qualified and superior candidate Hillary who is immeasurably more qualified by any comparison reported by the mainstream media. Apparently preparation was that thorough and lengthy and who are we mortals to question Hillary Clinton, the inevitable one.

 

Here is why Donald Trump supporters had best pray that Hillary remains healthy because Donald Trump is not prepared to face any other Democrat candidate. Should Hillary Clinton fall so ill as to withdraw from the campaign and resign as the Democrat candidate then the Democrats could choose virtually anyone to take her place. This would mean that Donald Trump would need to destroy this new handpicked candidate in the remaining two debates or face a humiliating loss. Imagine the excitement that would be resultant from Hillary Clinton leaving the ticket and Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden be placed as her replacement. Each would bring a decisive alteration and the Hillary supporters would likely be beseeched by Bill Clinton to support the new candidate as this would be the best tribute they could provide and this would please Hillary and Bill Clinton and who could resist such a supplication. Additionally, there would be the additional supporters which would start coming out of the woodwork and the Democrats would soon have their entire party excited to support their candidate and Donald Trump would be facing an invigorated Democrat Party while the Republican Party would remain in its current dismal state with entire wings of the party contemptuous of their Party’s candidate. Remove Hillary and place any normal candidate with anything even approaching normal negatives and baggage, even if false identifying as a Native American or not being an actual Democrat but instead a dedicated card carrying socialist independent, would not work to the detriment that Hillary Clinton provides for the candidacy of Donald Trump to allow the necessary hope for him to win the Presidency. No, the only Democrat candidate which would allow any hope for Donald Trump to win the Presidential elections would be a Hillary Clinton and none other so her health is of paramount importance to the Trump Camp if he is to have any hope of being elected President. So, Trump supporters would be advised to add Queen Hillary having good health to their nightly prayers or whatever supplications of which they partake if they hope for Donald to have any hope of a chance to win come November 8, Election Day.

Debate One; Hillary the Destroyer

 

Hillary Clinton probably won the first debate hands down. She managed to make Donald Trump be on the defensive from the word go through to the concluding remarks. She used innuendo, smear, accusations and a steady diet of calling him a liar, cheat and some old favorites such as ‘bait and switch’ and ‘fact check’ this, that and the other. And where were we to go to fact check these presumed lies? Well, to Hillary’s web site where she had real fact checkers who were unbiasedly giving out the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. There was no way these fact checkers were from her campaign staff or that they might also need fact checking as they labeled everything Donald likely said, including the, ‘a’, ‘and’, ‘the’ and ‘good evening’ as being false. What was wrong with good evening, well it was not necessarily good and it was not evening everywhere the debate was being watched, it was 4:00 AM where I watched it and I have to agree that it was not good, I would much rather have continued sleeping. And I watched it again the past afternoon just to make sure no biases played a role in critiquing this as this is an editorial site, not the New York Times, which actually is also an editorial site. Hillary basically was a bulldog who had just been given a Donald Trump chew toy soaked in gravy.

 

Donald appeared startled by the initial assaults and the torrents which followed. He appeared to have believed the debate would be civil. He was the obvious non-political hard-nosed attack drone. He was also the obvious target of exactly that. He tried defending himself and was often reminded it was Hillary’s turn to defame and he should take it like a good little chew toy. Trump missed almost every opportunity to attack Hillary and often to do so with substance. On cyber security her e-mails hardly were mentioned. On policy there were slight mentions on her foreign policy disasters and her lack of fixing anything in her thirty years in politics, though much of those thirty years she had accomplished being her husband’s defense against charges of severe womanizing and even rape and of having attacked viciously any woman who claimed any improprieties. Trump never mentioned Benghazi and stuck mostly to Libya and Syria and did accuse her and President Obama of setting the stage for the formation of ISIS and then remaining inactive when it could have been destroyed early on. She blamed George W. Bush for setting the date for their pulling out the troops and Iraq for not delivering on demand at the twelfth hour guaranteed protection of American servicemen and women which they simply accepted without any form of argument or rebuttal demanding or even pleading, they simply responded, OK, we will leave if that is what you and your Iranian minders desire as we would not desire to impede Iran in taking over most of Iraq as we are actually Iranian Manchurian candidates and work for them. On Iran, Donald Trump did hit Hillary on that deal which was not entirely true as the final mess was more attributed to John Kerry, her successor, and President Obama.

 

When All You Have is Some Simple Slogan, that's it!!

 

The theme for the night was largely Trump is a liar and not allowing him the latitude or grace granted Clinton. She was granted far wider interruption rights and running over on her two minute limit, or it seemed so while Trump was more often remanded for interrupting and being informed it was Hillary’s turn and he need be quiet before he would be made to go sit in the corner. The moderator remained otherwise fair until the closing moments when Lester Holt joined in with Hillary Clinton in demeaning Donald Trump accusing him of womanizing, spookily hanging around beauty pageants, and calling one contestant a ‘pig’ and a variety of other misadventures and attacks, verbal in nature, against women and general debasing women. This came conveniently soon after accusing Trump of racial segregation in a housing project and being taken to court over the racial profiling and rejection of minorities. What was removed was context. Donald had just been given these properties to manage, he settled the case, ended all such profiling across the board and has never shown any racial, religious or other such improprieties in anything he has done his entire career even when advised it would make business sense to do so. Both accusations were low blows and the womanizing came when he would not be allowed a rebuttal and to have such come from the facilitator of William Jefferson Clinton’s career womanizing and proven improprieties was beyond surreal.

 

Here is our advice for Hillary. Try appearing more human and that smile does not have to be there all mechanoid-like as if it is programmed onto your face. Do not be so stiff in your movements as if you are constantly running through facts and figures looking up your next line to speak and what defamations from a list fit the subject to lead off with and which one to close with as there must be an attack at the front and back of each segment to prevent Donald from refuting both or if doing so not being able to give his positions any fleshing out in his allotted time. Relax some and use different meters when talking otherwise you may start rumors you were home with pneumonia and that was an advanced attack drone or android in your place. Furthermore, the world is not your enemies with the only trustable people are those paid to take your side. Try a smidge of humor every now and then as that is what a normal person does and most politicians attempt to emulate normal human beings. Lastly, breathe between sentences as otherwise we are back to the robotic android appearance. We can live with the never let up and always attack, attack, attack until the target resembles pancake batter. Continue stressing your plan to tax the rich and give to the rest claiming the Robin Hood award for generosity (though Robin Hood stole from those who were ruling and taxing the poor and gave it back to the taxpayers, not exactly your plan but most people are unaware of this and only know the song where he took from the rich and gave to the poor never mentioning the rich were the government of the time).

 

Here is our advice for Donald. Spend less time on defense and more on attack. Hillary has more faults than California and some of them can and will cause the BIG One. Bring these faults up regularly with one somewhere within each segment and they can and should be repeatable and used more than once. Benghazi, that is one of the most touchy. Always mention and remind people that Hillary’s tax the rich includes households making a combined income of over fifty-thousand dollars and that the middle class to her are those making under twenty-four thousand a year households which pretty much rules out all married couples where both work. Allude to the fact that should she raise the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour that that would make a household with two minimum wage workers borderline wealthy and that it will cost around half a million in lost minimum wage jobs. Point out how you will be best served should the minimum wage be increased to $15.00 an hour to replace as many minimum wage workers with automated systems and thus have zero minimum wage employees and that Wendy’s and other fast food restaurants are already heading in that direction out of fear of such a minimum wage increase. Pound her berating Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu for over half an hour demanding he surrender to President Obama’s disastrous plan to make the entire West Bank into another Gaza and give the land away without a single guarantee except that President Obama and Hillary promises that the Palestinians would behave nice, despite Mahmoud Abbas promises to do the exact opposite and continue the terror attacks. Bring up her disgraceful defense of President Clinton and his known sexual escapades and mention Monica Lewinski, Gennifer Flowers, Eileen Wellstone, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Dolly Kyle, Sally Perdue, and Elizabeth Ward Gracen. You have played the gentleman, now play the respectable man who is simply telling truths and not attempting to hurt this poor, innocent, defenseless woman. Use facts and invite people to fact check your accusations themselves and not rely on your or Hillary’s so-called fact checkers as they are paid employees, both yours and hers. Take a slight hit to give an even bigger one and take away her check my fact checkers as they are honest to the last dollar spent on them. Remember the disasters such as ISIS, Benghazi, Libya in general, Syria, the Red Line fiasco with chemical weapons with Bashir al-Assad, demeaning the Israeli Prime Minister, the Iran Deal, and of course the e-mails, their erasure when a court ordered them turned over, and how any regular citizen would be spending life in prison if they skirted justice and flaunted her refusal to obey the court and get away with it.

 

“What difference, at this point, what difference does it make?”

 

Our advice to the American People is for them to watch all the debates, even the Vice-Presidential debate and choose wisely as more than the United States rests in the balance of their choice. There is a force reawakening and the last time it awakened it almost conquered Europe if not for two battles in different times and places, one in Tours on October 10, 732, where the hero was Charles “The Hammer” Martellus (Martel) and the other two hundred years later give or take at Vienna on September 12, 1683, where the hero was King of Poland John III Sobieski. Now Europe is almost lost and if they are to make a comeback it will require a number of dedicated changes and new leaders in the mold of the Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders, actress Bridgette Bardot and others and once again the great assistance from the standard of freedoms, the United States. Yes, America will likely be called to save the western Liberal World once again and hopefully this one will be the last though that may never be possible.

The American Election Problem

 

The election is going to come down to a choice, if it can be called that, between the one least hated. The reason that has become the race is due to the fact that far too many voters will be voting to make sure the other candidate does not ruin the nation and potentially the world. That still allows for primary election coverage as that is where the only real choices are. Any normal election year none of the front-runners would be leading to receive their party’s nomination. Hillary is simply the less damaged goods still vying for the Democrat nomination while Trump is the more mainstream candidate on the Republican side of the ledger. The problem is neither one of them is a preferred choice; they are simply the masters of their neighborhood. Hillary has been running on the “It’s my turn and you had best let me run or I will scorch the earth beneath your feet,” candidate. She has become a fire-breathing dragon and the Democrats have wisely decided to turn her loose on the Republicans. Trump has become the product of the year of the ‘anybody but Hillary’ candidate and he wisely took up that mantra before any of the others realized what it was they were running for. Ted Cruz managed his second place finish because he actually has a following which survived having all the oxygen sucked out of the room. And that is why this will be the year the Presidency was lost more than it was won.

 

What has the public upset is that there are no good choices left as all the adults were kicked out of the sandbox before anyone realized what was actually happening. The only real candidates still in the running who actually have a platform are Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders. The two who are not getting the chance to run for President in November are the socialist, a real redistributionist socialist, and a man who would seem more at home on the pulpit than on the stump running for President of the United States. Instead the choices will be the man-child and the anti-man, and as for which is which, does it really matter? When other than the true believers are going to the polls in order to salvage what they can of America from ruination knowing that the person they are voting against has them more annotated to vote than does the person for whom they are voting, should tell the world that sanity has left the building. Those voting for Hillary are likely more scared of what a Trump Presidency would bring than they really believe Hillary is the best person for the White House with the exceptions being those who were with her in 2008, and even some of those have likely awakened to the horrifying allure. And for those who Hillary in the White House is more horrifying than Godzilla loose in Tokyo will not be voting for Trump as much as defending the realm from a fate worse than death. Yes, each has their core who believes they will make for a great President but neither has sufficient support to win an election except against the other. This will be the election where the majority leaving the voting booth when asked who they voted for would be more honest saying who they voted against. What was mystifying this past week was a seminal series of events at AIPAC where the candidates who felt a need to gain a stage appeared and revealed who may actually prove to earn their trip to the White House and the Presidency. Hillary gave her address and received exactly what everyone expected. Cruz gave his speech and was also well received. Kasich was Kasich. Bernie wisely skipped AIPAC knowing full well that he had few friends who honestly know his views on the Middle East.

 

Hillary Clinton for President

Donald Trump for President

Bernie Sanders for President

Ted Cruz for President

 

That leaves us with Donald Trump. He gave what was honestly a solid performance starting out slightly hesitantly. This was to be expected as he was not exactly in friendly climes. If anything he was in enemy waters as was noted by the number of those who walked out as he entered. Trump was not expected to impress and many probably stayed initially to watch him crash and burn. He did nothing of the sort. Donald Trump actually won some respect and may have made some friends. Trump started to give what was expected but at some point appeared to change gears and actually win over many listening and probably by the end were trying to figure out exactly what had happened. Donald Trump came to survive and thrived; he actually thrived and hopefully realized that he can win being himself in any room against any challenge. This appearance at AIPAC may have produced an actual honest contender if only he grows from this and not revert to his clownish easy road. Winning is a lot harder to do than simply not losing, and the difference is what makes a leader.
