This Guy Understands – So Too Does The Majority of The Conservative Base…

It’s great, heck, it’s better than great, to see young people who are able to see through the professional political class, and the strategies deployed by the overall uni-political system.

      She just said on her show tonight that she has never known a man who would call a woman a fat pig, in public or private, and (paraphrasing) that such language bothers her, but she understands that it might not bother others.

      I think that remark should put an end to all of this- Megyn has now said that such language towards women bothers her. She’s transparent about it. I think Trump handled her question amazingly and that it helped him w/ many folks.

      (I just wish he would dump the 3rd P talk; his numbers would go even higher of he did).

        I agree that Trump handled Megyn’s question well. I have no idea the context of Trump’s remarks she took issue with about Rosie O’Donnell but the snippet below of an article from 2007 IMO describes Rosie pretty well. Would be interesting to know if her language toward men would offend Megyn?

        April 24, 2007 — ROSIE O’Donnell’s blue humor made faces red when she emceed the Matrix Awards in front of 2,000 feting New York’s most accomplished women in media at the Waldorf-Astoria Grand Ballroom yesterday.

        The loose-lipped lesbian dropped the F-bomb as Barbara Walters lowered her head on the dais and covered her face with her hand. O’Donnell concluded a rant about Donald Trump by grabbing her crotch and shouting, “Eat me!”

        O’Donnell also said she was sad when Trump called her “disgusting” and “fat” because, “it was always my dream to give an old, bald billionaire a boner.”

        The annual luncheon of N.Y. Women in Communications – which honored Cindy Adams, Meredith Vieira, Joan Didion, Susan Lyne, Arianna Huffington and Lisa Caputo, among others – featured as presenters News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, Joy Behar, Nora Ephron, and Martha Stewart.

        Also on hand were 17 sweet-faced high school girls who won scholarships to pursue their dreams of careers in media.

        “I was offended by how vulgar and common O’Donnell was,” said Robert Zimmerman, a Democrat active in progressive causes. “It was especially inappropriate with young people present.”

      Why would anyone vote for an unprincipled narcissist like The Donald who lies to all of us, regularly cheats his vendors by withholding payments, bribes politicians of both parties and robs billions of dollars from his creditors through numerous bankruptcy filings. He says he is playing the system and the law to his advantage but even if that was reasonable it is never moral and he could never be trusted to act in the country’s best interest. We do not need another Obama.

        Have you ever owned a business? If you haven’t, I’d suggest you may be speaking about things which you have no experience in. If you have owned a business, then I’d suggest you must be one of the most fortunate business owners that have never had to slow pay a vendor or use the law to your advantage to make sure your employees are paid because of circumstances beyond your control. And if you’ve never been involved in real estate development/construction, which is highly cyclical and populated by hardball-playing dens of thieves, then I’d suggest you really don’t have a clue what Trump does in his ~500 businesses/projects. Talk morality all you want, but in those fields (in which I’ve been everything from a banker, financer, lending broker, owner/rehabber/developer), I’ve seen the most moral of men and women play hardball every single day of their lives just to stay in business. You have to or you will be eaten alive. For instance, is it moral to sign a loan agreement which you have every intention of paying faithfully, and then renegotiate terms if the economy or any number of business circumstances turn against you (knowing full well that every business partner you engage with will do the exact same thing to you every day of the week?)

        In one business I paid off business lines of credit with my bank for 12 years perfectly as required by my loan agreements, only to have the bank refuse to renew them for the following 13th year. That bank decision forced me to close a 12 year-old business down entirely because I couldn’t secure alternate financing fast enough. I didn’t suffer too bad, but about a dozen employees that I had to let go did. What did the “morality” of my business ethics accomplish for those employees? On the other hand, I’ve renegotiated mortgage loan terms with lenders that helped us complete a project profitably and keep our employees paid and our honorable contractors paid. Did I intend on paying those original loan terms? Absolutely. Did I get screwed by a primary contractor that made it impossible for me to keep my original promises and loan terms without shutting down the project and laying off employees and cancelling contracts with honorable contractors that would have hurt their employees, too? Absolutely. Did that lender know it was in their interest to renegotiate those terms because if they didn’t, they would lose as much money as I would. Absolutely.

        So save your morality speeches for another venue. Business is business, and real estate development can be a cruel and heartless business for those that don’t learn to play hardball. Taking a business into Chapter 11 reorganization is nothing more than renegotiating terms with parties that know it’s in THEIR interests to renegotiate those terms. AND those creditors are in complete control of those negotiations, as they can refuse to negotiate or refuse the management’s reorganization plan and have the company liquidated.

          And by the way, those creditors know what risks they face every day doing business. These are not wide-eyes innocents that don’t know that the company they decide to do business with can file Chapter 11 reorg any day of week, just like they can do the same thing.

    By now people must realize how unfair and unbalanced Fox news is. And as far as they’re concerned, Donald Trump is not a serious candidate. That’s why he doesn’t get respectful, serious questions. The “questions” are posed to throw information out to the public. Trump called a woman a dog, he had 4 bankruptcies, blah, blah, blah. It’s a very thinly disguised attempt to blackball him, and at the same time it is designed to demoralize those of us in flyover country who support him. Try this, turn.it.off. Cancel your cable tv service. Don’t watch it. Put it out of business.

      MSM and the eGOP FEAR Donald Trump, as he is not part of the establishment, he cannot be (easily) bought and paid for, and he does not go to do their bidding. Of course he’s going to be made fun of. You didn’t hear George W get the grilling of his business failures.

      Personally, I think the appeal of a straight talker comes from the past 8 years (specifically the past 4) of Obama. The average person is sick of watching the debt spiral since 9/11, tax and spend b the Democrats and gifts to the elitists by the eGOP. The only person that’s calling out the establishment (both sides) for how bad it is – is Trump, and those that are being ‘given’ favors/money by the establishment will be crying in their beer.

None of his questions had anything to do with running the office of President but rather to assassinate his character. Now I am a Cruz girl. I want him for POTUS and Trump as VP but if it’s the other way around, I do not care! They are not giving this man a chance. I use to like Fox News. Not so much today. Let’s see if they start backpedaling on this one.

          Here’s a clip that gets a lot of answers out of The Donald; I can recommend it! 27min. and you get to hear Donald Trump pat Don Lemon on the head, gently. Why? Because Don Lemon asked questions respectfully, and actually did a good job of journalism; he got a lot of information from The Donald, especially about his feelings about Megyn Kelly and the merry band of cutthroats at Fox.

          I hope Lemon appreciates it, and I’m enjoying very much the thought of a certain blonde on the receiving end of a lot of bad news! Lemon’s a biased idiot, but he knows enough to take manna from heaven, when it comes right down the phone line. Megyn though- is regretting that she will never get another chance to put Donald on the hot seat, and is probably getting some bad, bad karma biting her right on the hiney, right about now!

The real shift to the left on Fox News, in my opinion, was after the hacking scandal in the UK. After that broke and then suddenly went to not being mentioned in the news, I noticed a slow shift to the left. Its so slow and so subtle that if you watched every day, you might not notice.

        “We have a strategic alliance with Rupert Murdoch for sure and I have been with him for the last 15 or 20 years,” the alleged al-Qaeda financier, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed said in February, 2015 as he announced that his company would shed most of its stake in Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., taking its 6.6% ownership down to 1%. Then said, “My backing of Rupert Murdoch is definitely unwavering.”

        And, Alwaleed is much more than just an investor in Murdoch’s companies. He is also a personal friend of Murdoch’s who boasted in 2005 that a phone call to Murdoch resulted in the Fox News Channel altering its coverage of Muslim riots in France, in order to eliminate references to the religious affiliation of the Muslim extremists.

    I was reading through some of my young family members facebook pages and reading comments of their friends. I wouldn’t have thought youngsters would be watching Republican debates, but it seems many of them did. Most of the comments were by late teen and early twenties young men but they seem to like Trump and thought poorly of Kelly. I won’t use some of the words some of them used in regards to her but in my day they would equate to a high society witch who thinks she can treat people how she pleases.

    I’m fully aware that young folks attention span is short and tomorrow they’ll be on to talking about something else but I was surprised that they watched at all and surprised that they seem to like an older man with b…. as most of them said. Many of them want him to win just so they can hear him tell Obama, “you’re fired,” but at least they watched.

            He doesn’t need their money. Their is no personal challenge for him in doing so. If he is “for” anything but changing the status quo, why are they attacking him?

            He said virtually the same things in 1988 in Oprah interview that he said when entering the race. Democrats today are NOT you’re father’s Democrats. Why would he align with these America killers (CoC) herding us into the NWO?

              He’s attacking himself much more than others are attacking him. To expect not to be called out on gaffes or unbelievably illogical statements is a fantasyland much more extreme than the one Obama lives in. To take every single word ever said in his direction as some kind of major offense when he’s running for the most powerful position on the planet is also taking Obamas thin-skin to hyperspeed extremes.

              And if he’s just a serious candidate anyway, why no policy positions? I’ll do better isn’t a policy. And we ate not a dictatorship, so just thinking you can wave a wand and everyone will bow before you isnt a serious stance. At some time he will present an actual policy, right? EVERYONE else has; even Hillary who refuses to take a position on most anything has some actual proposals. I mean, if he is a serious candidate at least, he’ll eventually present something, right…

                His business restructuring bankruptcies also show he is smart enough to move in a new direction if something isn’t working. And 4 times in how many years. with how many businesses? Obviously he learned well how to get it right and make it work – pretty much all the time!!!

    Donald’s response invoking Rosie will go down as one of the best debate one-liners of all time. I fell out of my chair laughing b/c it was so amazing. I also have no problem with how he snapped back @ Megs.

    However, as I’ve said before w/ respect to the raise yeah hand question- it was really a poorly worded question that contained two parts.

    First, not one of the candidates should be expected to throw their support behind the eventual winner simply b/c they are all republicans- it would be nice and the gentlemanly thing to do- but I could understand not actively supporting a few of those folks on the stage.

    The second part of the question dealt with promising to not run as a 3rd P candidate- and that should’ve been an easy response for everyone- ABSOLUTELY NOT. Unless, of course, you have no problem handing the WH to Hillary in 2016.

    I believe Trump made a serious mistake and people were angered about his refusal to rule a out 3rd P, rightfully so. Save that mistake, he would’ve walked away from that debate a borderline legendary folk hero pol of old b/c of the way he handled everything- fair and unfair- that came his way.

    I know some around here are hell bent on destroying the Republican Party status quo- even if it means giving the D’s the WH. That makes me physically ill and I hope and pray, first and foremost that it doesn’t come down to a situation where losing those folks comes into play, or that they come to their senses in the next 15 months.

      That question should have been his first major win, and he failed miserably

      Trump should have said – “look, I agree 100% with the Tea Party and am tired of more big Government politicians being crammed down our throats regardless of what the people want. If the Republican party once again attacks its own canidates to promote the one they can best control… well, to tell you the truth, I’m disappointed people like Cruz and Paul don’t have their hand up. We need real change, not more of the same. The people are desperate for it.”

      Instead he made it all about him, failing completely…

      “I cannot say. I have to respect the person that, if it’s not me, the person that wins, if I do win, and I’m leading by quite a bit, that’s what I want to do. I can totally make that pledge. If I’m the nominee, I will pledge I will not run as an independent. But — and I am discussing it with everybody, but I’m, you know, talking about a lot of leverage. We want to win, and we will win. But I want to win as the Republican. I want to run as the Republican nominee.”

        I wonder how any of us would stand up under such pressure. But Trump had the guts to tell the truth, even though he knew they were setting him up to fail. He STILL stuck to his guns. THAT’S the kind of man I want to be our President.

        It’s easy for us to say, “I wish he had answed it this way, or that way,” but we have the benefit of time to think it through, and we don’t have the pressure of the world watching.

        I wanted them to ask for a show of hands on a different question – “Who will build a wall on our border to protect the American people from illegal aliens like the MEXICAN illegal (No, Senator Rubio, they’re not all from South American countries) who just brutally attacked and killed a 64yo American citizen in her own home?

Can you name just one of the other candidates who has had the courage to speak out so boldly about the illegal immigration problems, especially the attendant crime? No you can’t because they are silent. They are hoping you won’t notice the changes occurring in our culture.

            I have thought long and hard about this and understand the frustration at the lack of results and feeling of Rs always rolling over. However, so long as BO is @ 1600 and the Hill lacks veto proof majority, we have to be realistic about what can actually be done.

            The people “we” gave power in ’10 & ’14 are a diverse bunch; rep’ing a diverse population w/ diverse goals- not to mention they are only one of 100 or one of 435. As much as we’d like them to be, not everyone voted in was in the Mike Lee/Tea Party mold (I think that’s a good example- you get the idea).

            I don’t think it’s fair to judge them until we have a R in the WH who won’t veto their stuff. That’s why I want to win the WH w/ an R at all costs- then worry about purity. If we go the other suggested route of wrecking ball blow it up all we will do is assure Dems @ 1600 while we continue to lose ground- possibly to the point where it can’t be made up for generations.

    H3LL even PUMA got the take down attempt of Trump…Very Good Article. (Snippet from the Article)
    PUMA: The Moment Donald Trump Won The #GOPDebate
    Last night Fox News did everything it could to take down Donald Trump (if you doubt us, ask Lindsey Graham who agrees with us). The first question was phrased to isolate Donald Trump. It wasn’t “raise your hands if you promise to support the nominee of the party.” The first question instead was premised in the negative to force Trump to be the outsider raising his arm. It was a direct attack on Trump meant to isolate him from the rest of the field and the Republican audience watching the debate.
    That first question could have waited for later in the show. Ask a bunch of policy questions and then ask Trump if he would support the party nominee. But the goal was to take down Trump and that is why the question was first and foremost.

    To Top it off it even seems like Lindsay Graham saw it too and talked about..yes I said Lindsay Graham, the guy who was/is pissed at Trump.
    Graham who has a running battle with Trump now.. ET TU, FOX NEWS’?: GOP presidential contender Lindsay Graham calls Fox News’ questions of Donald Trump “more of an inquisition than it was a debate.”
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is criticizing Fox News, saying the moderators of Thursday night’s debate were too harsh with GOP rival Donald Trump.
    “This was more of an inquisition than it was a debate,” Graham said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday morning. “It was a missed opportunity to talk about things that really mattered.”
    Graham charged that the debate moderators, Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly, were particularly unfair in their questioning of Trump, the outspoken billionaire who is leading many GOP polls.
    “At the end of the day, ask the man a question that explains his position and his solutions rather than a ten-minute question that describes him as the biggest bastard on the planet,” Graham quipped.
    The South Carolina lawmaker said that Thursday night’s contest resulted in a lost chance at addressing crucial issues like immigration reform.
    “Did you really understand our position on immigration after this debate?” Graham asked. http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/212090/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+pjmedia%2Finstapundit+%28Instapundit%29

      Only one candidate didn’t handle the obvious incoming questions well – and now we have to hear about some supposed conspiracy against him because he did poorly with said questions.

      I mean, poor Trump; for the 30th time this week he was asked about a 3rd party run (and didn’t have a good answer)
      …poor Trump, after a week of the media saying he’s sexist, he was asked about some of those comments (and didn’t have a good answer)
      …poor Trump, after being mocked for weeks because he was insisting he had proof Mexico was literally sending bad people to the US, he was asked for that evidence (he said people told him so weeks after the initial claim)
      …poor Trump, after weeks of statements he supported Democrat positions most of his life, including the Clintons, he got asked about said statement (and proceeded to claim he merely was participating in pay-for-play; although a small portion of his health care remarrk was okay)

      Seriously, he should have been prepared with at least some type of response to this stuff, it was all obviously coming. He wasn’t, at all, and instead dug himself deeper on most all issues. That’s not Poor Trump, that’s Duh Trump!

  35. As I have been reading, a lot of folks seem worried that Trump may run 3rd party for President. The only way Trump spends a billion dollars of his cash for a losing effort like this is revenge. He has the cash, true, but that’s not the point. The point is, he will lose. It splits the vote.. Dems win, simple math, remember Trump is a business man first & foremost.. Throwing a billion dollars away on a election bid that can’t be won is a act of lunacy ( revenge ) rest easy, Trump is not running 3rd party here, he can afford to & the GOPe knows this, Trump is playing Persian chess here..that’s my opinion on 3rd party run. ( it won’t happen ) none of the Repubs really want to anger trump, notice L.G. Speaking more favorably for trump? Apparently Fox has been secured by the CoC & GOPe to attack Trump.. The political gang is betting Trump won’t blow his cash to lose, thereby continuing to gun for him. Trump counters with saying I will run 3rd party..

            The issues seems to be that you believe he is at war with the “GOPe” – my responce was when has he just said that, why is he attacking non-GOPe guys then, and why is even an opportunity to explain himself considered an attack in his mind?

            You feel that’s not logical?

  37. Trump can win as a third party candidate. He does not need the Republicans.

    Looks like we have a few very concerned people; concerned about Trump’s motives, Trump’s choice to leave his options open; and even Trump’s ethics. I must say, I’m really tired already, when I think of all the heaps of concern we have to go through before Donald is inaugurated!

    Lots of places they call very concerned people a particular name. It’s “Concern _____.” Do you know what the missing word is? If so, give yourself a gold star! (Mr. Trump likes gold.)

    I get it that you have concerns. That’s why I wish that we had been able to watch a debate last night, instead of a putz; which failed rather spectacularly. Riveting TV, just like all the best fake reality shows; but this was supposed to be a debate. If it had been, perhaps some of your various concerns may have been answered! So I hope you’ll share your concern with Fox News, so they won’t do hit jobs ever again!

    And thanks- for your touching concern. (I’m just glad I’m not concerned!) Go Trump! 😀

      It is grueling isn’t it? The constant political nagging and outrage at him is tiresome.

      GO TRUMP! Work your magic! 😀
