The Professional Political Machine Says: “Donald Trump is Not Conservative” (Part 1)…

PART I – The professional political class continue to say candidate Donald J Trump is not conservative enough on his positions.  Various voices proclaim ownership of some arbitrary defining litmus test – that apparently moves depending on the definition of the person making the proclamation.

… so let’s cut through the BS and take a look at the issues.

Trump rubio bush

♦ On Immigration – Donald Trump is the originator of the entire immigration debate platform.  His position is outlined HERE, and is the ONLY candidate who proposed to build a wall, deport those who are here illegally, and use existing law to ensure enforcement mechanisms are deployed to stop illegal influx.

Including a critical proposal to use federal banking and money services regulations (wire transfer rules to Mexico) to aid in creating an incentive to become compliant with immigration law.

Trump has proposed removing executive restrictions on deportation through ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officers, allowing immediate deportation for undocumented illegal aliens.   The media call this “the deportation force”.

In addition, candidate Trump has proposed an end to the concept of “birthright citizenship” or “anchor babies”, which has never been adjudicated as a valid method for attaining citizenship and most legal minds believe is nonsense.  Candidate Ted Cruz believes “anchor babies” are U.S. citizens at birth.

No-one is more “conservative” on Immigration than Donald J Trump.

♦ On Second Amendment – Donald Trump has proposed the end of “gun free zones” on military bases and federal properties, allowing the individual states to determine where citizens are allowed to carry firearms.  Full Policy Outline HERE.

In addition, Trump has proposed that all states observe reciprocity with regard to concealed carry permits.  Meaning anyone can travel anywhere in the country using their concealed carry permit from their home state.   Essentially the same reciprocal arrangement and consideration that applies to drivers licensees.

No-one is more “conservative” on Second Amendment Rights.

♦ On Taxes – Donald Trump has a fully outlined tax policy available HERE.  Which includes provisions to stop corporate inversion and return U.S. corporate monetary assets to the U.S. without penalty.

Additionally, the tax rates are substantially reformed and streamlined where income tax payments do not begin until the wage earner surpasses $50,000 in annual income.  Trump is also proposing that Wall Street Hedge Fund operators cannot use capital gains rates to avoid their income tax bracket which would insure that very wealthy individuals cannot use loopholes and multiple accounting gimmicks to remove their own tax liability.

The Trump Tax proposal is a populist approach to improving the “middle class” wage earner, and providing upward mobility.  However, it is also one small part of a larger economic plan that unleashes economic growth.

On Trade – Candidate Trump folds the Tax Proposal into a more broad America-First economic policy through renegotiated trade deals.  The policy on China Trade specifically is available HERE.

Candidate Trump is against the Obama negotiated Trans-Pacific Trade Deal which has the blessing of congress (thanks to Ted Cruz and Trade Promotion Authority) and approvals of Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (crony capitalists).

Candidate Trump was the first to stand against TPP and also boldly propose that the 20-year-old NAFTA (North American Free Trade Alliance) trade treaties should be renegotiated to insure the Mexican trade economy is not longer able to skirt manufacturing rules and create outsourced jobs and manufacturing from the U.S.

The Trump platform on trade is “fair deals, and fair markets” that benefit U.S. jobs and the U.S. economy, not just one-way free market arrangements.

No-One is more “conservative” on U.S. Jobs, Trade or the U.S. economy.

♦ On Energy Policy – Candidate Trump supports the Keystone oil Pipeline a collaborative effort between the U.S. and Canada.  In addition Trump supports broad U.S. energy resource development to include execution of, and development of, U.S. Oil Leases in all regions of fossil fuel development.

Trump has proposed continued investment and exploration of “clean coal” technology using the vast coal mine resources in the Appalachian Range throughout West Virginia and into Pennsylvania.   Trump has proposed energy export leverage (oil, coal, natural gas) as part of the larger Trade-deal packages.

The U.S. can negotiate a resurgence of U.S. manufacturing with lower fully developed energy costs, a competitive advantage; and simultaneously our abundant resources in energy fuels also provide trade leverage (standards and tariffs) through energy export.

With a fully utilized energy sector, the U.S. can also use the accompanying economic growth to invest in alternative resource development such as nuclear, solar and wind.  The costs of alternative fuel research and development become underwritten by the expansive use of current resources.

No-one is more “conservative” and smart on fully developed energy use.

♦ On Education – Candidate Trump has clearly stated his opposition to Federal Common Core programs which mandate education policy from bureaucrats in Washington DC.  Trump does not believe in federal control of eduction and has clearly and succinctly stated that educational standards should be developed, and carried out, by those closest to the schools, parents and teachers.

Trump does not, and will not, support programs like “race to the top” (Obama), or “no child left behind (G.W. Bush).  Instead he prefers decisions regarding standards be made by individual states and local communities.

Candidate Trump, unlike Jeb Bush, would not support withholding funds from states, as blackmail to insure common core is used.

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Trump hugs a U.S. flag as he takes the stage for a campaign town hall meeting in Derry♦ On Military – Candidate Donald Trump has proposed a similar Reagan-era approach toward rebuilding the U.S. Military apparatus as a professional fighting force.   Throughout Trump’s campaign he has highlighted his intention to strengthen the U.S. modern military assets and build a comprehensive modern-era military.

However, candidate Trump views the U.S. military as a national force, and nation’s military, and runs counter to modern military industrial complex (neo-con) approach by eliminating military “outsourcing” or contractors (ex Blackwater).

Trump believes the collaborative private/government sector military partnership should be limited to the modernization of equipment and material (research and development), and never the deployment of soldiers or U.S. fighting forces.

Trump has expressed that American sons and daughters who serve in the military should be commanded by the best military and civilian leadership possible.  However, our soldiers should never be deployed through the use of private contractors who operate within a grey area, and whose objectives can become detached and end up serving their own best interests.

Candidate Donald Trump is nationally loyal to U.S. interests and extraordinarily “conservative” with reverence, to the traditions of the U.S. military.  (Reagan approach)

On Foreign Policy – Donald J Trump is neither an “isolationist” nor an “interventionist”.  Instead, as Trump has outlined numerous times, our approach to foreign affairs should always be through the prism of U.S. interests first and foremost.

Lead when prudent, support when needed.

Two Current Examples include:

•  Syria – Monitor closely, but allow Russia to fight ISIS in Syria to the extent their interests do not conflict with our own.   Build an international coalition to make a geographic “safe zone” within Syria where allied forces can protect Syrian refugees on the ground from any ISIS attacks – open direct lines of communication with Bashir Assad and negotiate with Vladimir Putin to use Russia’s military deployment and insure a stable transitional government for the people of Syria.

•  Ukraine – Monitor closely, support Germany and European allies in their efforts to work through the conflict with Russia and Ukraine.   Any “coalition development or intervention” must come from Germany as lead, with our support.  Germany is the regional economic powerhouse and nation dependent on Russian energy use.

Our actions within the global community should be well known, well defined, exceptionally forthright, direct, strong and unequivocal.   The American people should know what we are doing internationally, why we are doing it, and be able to see what value there is in our endeavors.  It is important to return to an era of clarity.

While Donald Trump’s foreign policy approach might not make the interventionist crowd (Neo-cons) happy, it will also not make the isolationist crowd (libertarians) happy.  The influence of the U.S. is only as strong as our ability to have our own national house in order.

After years of poor investment in U.S. infrastructure, lack of expansive economic development, burdensome regulations and trade/manufacturing deals antithetical to the U.S. middle class – Trumps proposals to look inward, put America first, and spend time polishing the lens on the ‘beacon of freedom’, are prudent, necessary and wise.

Simply, lets…

“Make America Great Again !”

Trump flag

If that’s not conservative enough for you, I honestly don’t know what could be.

        I would bet he initially wouldn’t shut down any (the laws of unintended consequences) but rather would appoint HIS people to head the departments with instructions to dig into the rot — sort of like a surgeon exploring the margins of a gangrenous leg. Then, if the rot is too great and the department (limb) cannot be saved – amputate. If the department is unnecessary (like an extra leg that doesn’t work), amputate. I suggest Education is unnecessary. Energy might be unnecessary. The problem is dumping all these “workers” (and I use the term loosely) onto the unemployment rolls. This is going to take years. First would be not to replace the retirees or those who resign, then start transferring those who can be transferred into departments that ARE necessary but who have retirements and/or resignations. But he knows how to do all this far better than I.

    Well said. And fact is, even if Trump may not be the exact type of conservative that I would prefer – neither are any of the others. And indeed, he is the ONLY one who I believe will at least sincerely try to implement some conservative policy because he is not bought and paid for. With the others, it is virtually guaranteed that regardless of what they say, we will see more GOPe corruption.

    One other thing – since Trump is NOT bought and paid for, we can at least respect that he is his own man and acting of his own accord. So where we disagree, it can be at least a respectful disagreement.

    • Trump himself debunks single payer. Big Mama Tea pointed me to the video. Removed all my doubts.

      My guess is that if Trump is considering some kind of VA/Medicaid payer for those who get payment from .gov (poor, devastating condition, etc.), the left is conflating that kind of “single payer” with a single payer for everybody, which is the absolute OPPOSITE of what Trump is talking about.

      Supporting eminent domain is supporting Keystone, etc. Goes all the way back to the start of civilization. It’s like taxes per se – we’re not going to get rid of it. Sadly, it’s just become a leftist F.U.D. point, IMO.

      Proper eminent domain means market or better payments and total fairness or better – very unlike the leftist tactic of ruining the person’s property and then forcing them to sell, or just absconding in the name of the state.

    I think it is fair to say Trump -is not- a small government conservative.

    Trump is a Populist Big Government conservative.

    A Real Border Wall is Big Government.

    Enforcing the Federal law on illegal immigrants to include preventing identity theft of people’s social security numbers via E-Verify is big government.

    The issue here is -whose interests- that big government is serving.

    As for Making Mexico pay for the borders wall, consider the concept of a “Mexico Border Wall Toll Authority.”

    A complete Mexican border wall will drive all vehicular traffic through a limited number of ports of entry through the Wall.”

    If you charge entry fees AKA tolls. Mexico pays for the wall.

    And the rest of use -do not- pay for future welfare, education and healthcare costs of all the illegal migrants.

    Further, once you get a toll authority building and maintaining the wall via tolls. It will keep upgrading the wall and builld a huge government construction/civil engineering/border sensor federal contractor base and work force supporting the Border Wall in Federal budgets versus the open borders fat cats.
    …forever.

    There is nothing more perminent that a temporary tax — AKA border toli — and a real border wall will create an iron triangle of interest like the one that created the interstate highway system in the 20th century at the expense of the rail road robber baron fat cats of the 19th century.

    Re-claiming the right of the people to print our own money is a scary thought but I think it is essential. If you read this excerpt you will see just how long the these globalist plan.

    Lincoln was considering having the United States of America print it’s own money (1876):

    “The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the US, if they remained as one block, and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world.”

    “Otto von Bismark chancellor of Germany 1876 On the 12th of April 1861 this economic war began. Predictably Lincoln, needing money to finance his war effort, went with his secretary of the treasury to New York to apply for the necessary loans. The money changers wishing the Union to fail offered loans at 24% to 36%. Lincoln declined the offer. An old friend of Lincoln’s, Colonel Dick Taylor of Chicago was put in charge of solving the problem of how to finance the war. His solution is recorded as this. “Just get Congress to pass a bill authorising the printing of full legal tender treasury notes… and pay your soldiers with them and go ahead and win your war with them also.”

This would have been great for everyone except the money changers who quickly realised how dangerous this policy would be for them. They wasted no time in expressing their view in the London Times. Oddly enough, while the article seems to have been designed to discourage this creative financial policy, in its put down we’re clearly able to see the policies goodness. “If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

    Blackwater Is Soaked

    The colonel was furious. “Can you believe it? They actually drew their weapons on U.S. soldiers.”

    The colonel, who was involved in a follow-up investigation and spoke on the condition he not be named, said the Blackwater guards disarmed the U.S. Army soldiers and made them lie on the ground at gunpoint until they could disentangle the SUV. His account was confirmed by the head of another private security company.

    One military contractor, who spoke anonymously for fear of retribution in his industry, recounted the story of a Blackwater operative who answered a Marine officer’s order to put his pistol on safety when entering a base post office by saying, “This is my safety,” and wiggling his trigger finger in the air. “Their attitude was, ‘We’re f—ing security; we don’t have to answer to anybody’.”

    Blackwater Guards Fired at Fleeing Cars, Soldiers Say

    Blackwater USA guards shot at Iraqi civilians as they tried to drive away from a Baghdad square on Sept. 16, according to a report compiled by the first U.S. soldiers to arrive at the scene, where they found no evidence that Iraqis had fired weapons.

    “It appeared to me they were fleeing the scene when they were engaged. It had every indication of an excessive shooting,” said Lt. Col. Mike Tarsa, whose soldiers reached Nisoor Square 20 to 25 minutes after the gunfire subsided.

    His soldiers’ report — based upon their observations at the scene, eyewitness interviews and discussions with Iraqi police — concluded that there was “no enemy activity involved” and described the shootings as a “criminal event.” Their conclusions mirrored those reached by the Iraqi government, which has said the Blackwater guards killed 17 people.

    Tarsa said they found no evidence to indicate that the Blackwater guards were provoked or entered into a confrontation. “I did not see anything that indicated they were fired upon,” said Tarsa, 42, commander of the 3rd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division. He also said it appeared that several drivers had made U-turns and were moving away from Nisoor Square when their vehicles were hit by gunfire from Blackwater guards.

        The issue of small versus big government always boils down to corruption.

        There is no more reality to a “High government services” than the Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy.

        You can have a high tax government or a low tax government, and both will be low services over time as corruption.eats all the big government’s taxes. You have much higher econoomic growth over time with a smaller gioovernment.

        In that vein a military should be as small as you can safely get away with, because military procurement degenerates into fraud and professional soldiers without war are armed civil servants or draft-indentured servants run/lorded over by armed civil servants..

The politicians are the product of a depraved and decadent system and they have become depraved and decadent by long time association. They aren’t in Trump’s league. He is devouring them.

    Plus, when the ‘is he conservative on this or that issue’ comes up, there is this: there are not ‘issues’. There is only ONE issue and that is the tidal wave of foreigners flooding in from our unguarded southern border. All other issues are trifling and inconsequential, like arguing about where to hang the pictures while the house is burning down. If the border is not sealed and the illegals deported we won’t have a country.

    TRUMP 2016!!!

    Could Trump please cut off all the Western Union stations at Wal-Mart at the customer service desk so people can make their returns instead of waiting in line for the illegals sending their money back to Mexico? That money alone could pay for the wall.

      I believe once they have to fill out “remittance affidavits” those lines will necessarily disappear.

      Once Trump cuts off welfare for illegals you should see those lines shorten too.

        I am SO fed up with the “you can’t deport 11 million people”! Why NOT? We IMPORTED them, didn’t we? What’s so different about showing them the way to go home? Kidding aside, the first step has to be target the employers. Your nanny is illegal? OK so long as we don’t catch you. But if we do, then you get SIX MONTHS in the slammer — no exceptions — and SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR fine. Your gardener is an illegal. Maybe he’s married to the nanny. Well,honey, that is 12 months in the slammer and 12K$ fine. Have a nice day. Naturally, welfare for non citizens is cut off. Might be able to sell that one by promising the citizen welfare recipients that they’ll get a raise once we clean out the illegals receiving welfare. It can be done. It just requires the will. So far as the anchor babies who are citizens? Here’s the choice. Take the infant/child back with you or leave the American citizen here and we’ll put him/her into foster care. S/he might even learn English that way. I am FED UP.

      I believe you are right and I believe a tough guy could bring Mexico to its knees in short order, not that that’s the thing to do. It is just an honest appraisal of the relative strengths of the two countries.

      We need to calculate the cost the US has borne and sanction Mexico for reparations. Furthermore they should be sanctioned for social crimes against the Indian and mestizos that have driven them from their ancestral homes. Mexico is a rich country. What kind of nonsense is going on down their because it is a very rich country in natural resources and plenty of fertile land?

      This game will be quickly won when we shift subject from where it is to where it should be, in Mexico. The ethnic Spaniards that have dominated Mexico for the past 500 years are driving their own citizen across the border on purpose. Demand Crimes Against Humanity charges be brought against the ruling class and $10,000.00 cash for each returning Mexican.

      Don’t talk about anything else. Just talk about Mexico’s criminal activity and what needs to stop down there so these poor illegals can return to their homes promptly. Sen As long as it’s on us, it is constant struggle, turn it around. This is MEXICO’S problem. Don’t talk about anything else. This is Mexico’s problem. Don’t talk about anything else. This is Mexico’s problem. Don’t talk about anything else. This is Mexico’s problem. Don’t talk about anything else. This is Mexico’s problem.

    So it appears that Trump is actually more “conservative” than any GOPe now serving in the House or Senate as well as any “Republican” (with the possible exception of Ted Cruz) now running for office! The time has come to unmask the “so called” leaders of the Republican Party for the corrupt socialistic big spenders they are!

    I agree with Ann Coulter, there really is only one issue, IMMIGRATION. If we can’t stop the elites from replacing Americans with a new populace, one they can manipulate, than it’s game over and all other issues won’t matter. We have to stop this bloodless coup that’s changing our culture and country at such a rapid rate that in the not so distant future there will be a point of no return. I really believe that Trump is our final hope.

    First, the PC part: I think that Trump and Cruz are the lesser of the evils.

    Now, after dutifully pouring over the article and comments, I cannot find the Trump position on abortion. He did say that his sister would be an excellent SCOTUS justice which troubles me because she is reportedly very pro-choice. Being a conservative evangelical, abortion is important — unborn human beings are being killed.

    I am curious why abortion was omitted from the article.

    The republican establishment is as screwed up as the democrats.They have gone so far rhino that they want to just go along to get along while selling our country down the river and falling to political correctness
    We will be seriously be remiss if we don’t elect Donald Trump
    The only sane true conservative. Rubio has already fallen to.the establishment republicans. He is getting the talking points and the financing from them. He’s smooth and practiced. Too smooth. Cruise is a firebrand but won’t be able to get things done because he’s disliked in the extreme. He’s a lot of things and could be a good VP, but not the president. Do your country a big blessing and vote for Trump. The media hates him so that should be a great endorsement right there.
