BaiTED – Donald Trump and Sarah Palin Team Up To Expose The Deep GOPe – Divide and Conquer….

Palin endorses Trump:  No-one will be more visibly filled with elitist too-cute-by-half smarm than FOX’s Megyn Kelly, or Nicole Wallace, or Kathleen Parker….  And no-one will be more visibly filled with rabid hatred than the same Wall Street cocktail class GOPe crew from ’08/’09/’10….

Sarah_Palin_850trump cruz - debate break

To use a fishing analogy – Donald Trump and Sarah Palin have put the best baits on the spread.  The outriggers, flat lines and down riggers are perfectly positioned as Palin/Trump steer directly over the top of the target.

Now, sit back and witness their slow troll directly over the heart of the GOPe Wahoo lair. This will force the GOPe to rise, become visible and take the bait.

The same professional political class (GOPe) voices who accused Donald Trump of sexism, misogyny and vitriol, will now be baited to the surface to expose their sexism, misogyny, vitriol and elitism.  Watch.

The same voices who advocated for McCain (’08), Romney (’12) and now Bush/Rubio or Cruz (’16) will become exponentially desperate as their place at the crony-capitalistic trough is now at risk.  Watch.

The primary attacks upon Trump and Palin, over the next two months, will specifically come from the exclusive interests of Wall Street elites, financiers and those who benefit from the K-street lobbying business/influence therein.  Watch.

There are trillions at stake, and the endorsement of Sarah Palin identifies a very specific strategy.  Donald Trump will campaign for office, Sarah Palin will campaign against the GOPe “establishment” – and provide cover for Trump to run for office.

The elements who corrupted the original Tea Party movement, the Mitch McConnell Orin Hatch, John Cornyn, Thad Cochran, John McCain and now Paul Ryan types, will now use the full force of Wall Street to attack the both Palin and Trump.

However, Palin will now play the role of ‘American Sniper Covering Trump’s Six‘.  It is a righteous role she is well trained to fulfill; and a role for which she possesses a very specific skill-set.   Theirs’ is a target rich environment.

The GOPe strategists are now forced to adjust their attack approach and quickly formulate a plan to get past Palin in order to reach their target, Trump.

In order to get past Palin, they will have to deploy the same attack approach against her they used in ’08/’09, only this time Palin has the benefit of experience.  She can call them out, as she began to do in Iowa today.

This is going to be a lot of fun to watch.

Slow troll, right over the target…..

…Watch who surfaces.

        “I’ve seen first hand that his staff loves him and is loyal to him,” Falwell said, adding that Trump “lives a life of loving and helping others as Jesus taught in the great commandment.”

        Falwell said his father was criticized for supporting Ronald Reagan because Reagan was from Hollywood and not a Sunday school teacher. “I see a lot of parallels between my father and Donald Trump,” he added.

        “He honors his fiduciary responsibilities…he speaks the truth publically even if it is uncomfortable for people to hear,” Falwell said of Trump, adding that he has “stunned the political world.”

        “Donald Trump is a breath of fresh air in a nation where the political establishment from both parties has betrayed their constituencies,” Falwell said, adding that Trump is the only candidate who can claim he’s “not a puppet on a string,” while the wealthy campaign donors are the puppet masters.

              The closest any minister got to asking O that was when one asked him about prayer.
              Obama actually said (and I’m paraphrasing here) that he doesn’t pray to God, he prays to himself and he listens to his own inner voice giving him answers as to whether he’s doing the right thing or not.
              This is akin to a Bible verse about how our own consciences either ”accuses us or excuses us” when we do right or wrong.
              But the Bible adds the importance of prayer to that.
              Anyway, Obama admitted he’s such a terrific BS’er that sometimes he even believes his BS himself!

            Trump also said his greatest fault is that he doesn’t forgive. I don’t think Trump feels mercy should be exploited, even Christians believe mercy was God’s greatest gift to humanity through his only begotten Son. To me, this shows a profound humility forged from a strict father who disowned his son, Donald’s older brother Freddy, his heir apparent.

            True, budmc. Also, Luntz the Duntz, Christian Theologian/sarc, knows so much about it, right? The funny thing, is while that must be a big deal for Evangelicals, and Catholics have confession, all my years of a Mainline Protestant congregation from childhood, I’ve no recollection of any emphasis on ‘asking God for forgiveness’. The big deal was knowing right from wrong, doing the right thing, and making amends or fixing the wrong if you messed up.

            IOW, all about personal responsibility.

            Frankly, with my background, the concept of being encouraged to beg for forgiveness from the Almighty or confessing to a mortal in the confessional booth feels like trying to abdicate responsibility for ones actions.

            • budmc says:

              My take is this. It’s not the asking for forgiveness but the believing you have been forgiven that’s most important. Believing you are forgiven changes your relationship with Our Father. How did you feel when you thought your dad was mad at you?

              You also will never know peace until you know you are forgiven. Forgiveness is to help you. (The reason we forgive other’s is so they don’t live in our heads rent free,

              Think peace. ) Not so much to clear your record with Our Father. Think, if Our Father was mad at you and didn’t forgive you, you could live in his head rent free.

              You could have emotional control over God if he didn’t you. Forgiveness is a two way street. Most people don’t see it like that because all they know is “facts” about God and don’t have a personal relationship.

              Instead of seeing God as a loving Father that is personally concerned about you and only wants what’s best for you. It’s God as dictator of the universe, God as errand boy God do this, God do that.

              God as Santa Claus – gimme. God as ____. Fill in the blank. Anything but a loving Father that loves you unconditionally. Make sense?

Lists all the sensible things that must be done and with his past record of successes intends to succeed doing them. We admire him we don’t worship him.

I avoided the big rally and debate shows and watched his first hand dialog. What I found I really liked. He was not scripted, looked the interviewer in the eye and dealt business and his perspective. No teleprompter and practical direct answers. So it is what he says, what he’s done and how he says it.
                  So not to confuse Trumps’ rise with irrational zeal or wishful thinking, I instead look at the most significant contributor to Reagan’s election; Jimmy Carter.

                Or you can pick up the current copy of National Enquirer and read about “The Donald Trump Nobody Knows”.

                A caller to a radio talk show told this story back several months ago. He was from FL and told about being a contractor on the Taj Mahal building when Trump decided to pull the plug on building it. … he sent Trump a letter explaining the investment he had already made in people/payroll/expenses to get onsite and stated he believed Trump would honor the contract they signed for $85,000 and sent it to Trump by FedEX. The next day after Trump received the letter the contractor received a check personally signed Trump on a personal account in the amount of $85,000.

                There are many, many more stories from real people whose lives have been touched by Trump but the best evidence of who Trump really is are his children and their cores values and work ethic and wanting others to prosper as they have.

            Hi Amanda,

            I was once a Ted Cruz supporter. I didn’t, or wouldn’t, believe Sundance’s warnings about him for a long time. I thought Cruz’s stand for the repeal of Obamacare was courageous and awesome. It didn’t work, but I thought, hey, at least there’s someone who will at least try to do SOMETHING.

            I was also pulled towards him because of his Christianity. I thought, finally, a leader who will stand for the principles that have been so severely lacking in DC.

            I heard the warnings here, the red flags that Sundance saw – Cruz’s refusal to help any candidate in 2012 that was going against an incumbent, establishment or not. Mr. Cruz said nothing when the GOPe used mob-style tactics in Mississippi to defeat a real Conservative, and re-elect a man not fit to serve.

            His support and votes for TPA and TPP, his lack of commitment on immigration, his wife’s connections to Goldman Sachs, and her work towards a North American union, his father’s really out-there statements about Ted’s destiny, his father’s religious connections to dominionism and Benny Hinn, etc… I can’t think of them all because I’m tired. :/ But they’re all here in the archives. Just search Ted Cruz on this site – it’s all documented.

            Still, I made excuses for him, still believed he was a good guy. What finally got through to me was the deceit on his financial disclosures. He has left off loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank, and money from an off-shore holding company that he had co-owned. In all of these cases, he has claimed forgetfulness. I can’t buy that. There is more now that I’m learning about his duplicity, but that was what finally opened my eyes.

            I am profoundly disappointed in him, and angry that he is using his (claimed) Christianity to rally support, when his actions just do not support his words.

            Throughout all of this, I supported Trump, too. I am excited about Trump – his message, his complete independence from the Uniparty in DC and the money and power they wield, the grassroots movement that is still growing. I thought a Trump/Cruz ticket would be great. Not anymore.

            I trust Donald Trump and I trust Sarah Palin. I don’t believe she is doing this for money or selfish reasons. She’s doing it because she loves our country. Why in the world would she put herself through this torture again for any other reason? She’s being hit hard out there, from all sides. She’s not supporting Cruz because she probably figured all of this out, too.

            I do not believe Donald Trump is a charlatan. I’ve listened to him, I’ve watched him with people, ordinary people. He has genuine compassion for them. He truly is doing this for America.

            Finally, I trust Sundance and the wonderful people on this site. I’ve been hanging out here for several years. THIS is the place to find the truth…whether you like that truth or not (said sheepishly).

            I hope you’ll stick around and check it all out.

            Sorry for such a long reply, but I think it’s important.

              Janet, I have been interested in “sundance’s” evaluation of the GOPe’s plans to win the nomination, but have thought his/her critiques of Cruz were odd- and I still do.

              Beyond anything else, I would assert two things:
              1) The posts on this site regarding Trump remind me of the attitudes about Obama prior to his election- that he would “heal” the planet, stop the rise of the oceans, etc. “Hope and Change,” but with a Trumpian turn of the phrase.
              2) The Iowa primaries could be like a scene from “Rollerball,” the jammer takes out Cruz, and Kasich or Rubio (both GOPe candidates) pull ahead. Be careful what you wish for.

              I don’t think ANY politician (and Trump IS a politician, now) is totally trustworthy, BUT I do think Cruz understands the Constitution and would do everything in his power to restore Constitutional balances. Trump will not- he will use executive orders just as Obama has done and will appropriate even more power to the executive branch- something we must NOT tolerate.

                I concur with both Janet and Amanda, in measure. Trump will HAVE to use EO’s to revoke Obama’s EOs, that’s just the way it’s done. The question is whether or not he will CONTINUE to use them as a governing style, when he runs up against the inevitable obstruction of both the Dims and the GOPe in Congress. THIS WILL BE THE TEST.

                I would personally like to see him simultaneously devolve power out of the executive branch in smart ways, giving power back to the states in education and other ways, so that EOs would have less and less power. They are only supposed to have power over functions of the executive branch anyway, but nobody is holding Obama to that, either.

                I would love to see Trump, when he has done what he needs to do thorugh EOs to revoke previous ones, ask Congress to pass a law invalidating EOs for the future, taking that power away from the President forever (including “signing statements, EOs, and “executive actions”). The REAL problem is the concentration of power in the executive branch anyway, and the evolution of the “administrative state”, which is a shadow government all its own. I remember Reagan trying to deal with that after his Grace Commission report, but he ran smack dab into the immovable bureaucracy, which survives administrations, and is equivalent to the AS of today.

                We will not get a perfect President, and the country is far gone, maybe too far gone, for all the damage to be corrected. The rot is deep, deep, deep, and firmly entrenched. I wish Trump were less vindictive and more tactful. In a normal election, he would not be my first choice. BUT THIS IS NOT A NORMAL ELECTION, AND THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY IS AT STAKE. I can’t think of another candidate I would trust besides him. But he is not perfect.

                The critiques of Cruz have come as the events have occurred. I’m not sure why you think they’re odd or orchestrated. Everything is documented on this site – easily verified.

                Obama’s message – totally different from Trump’s. And, oh, the warning signs that people would just not listen to! Trump’s is the most conservative message out there, and his position as an outsider to DC politics is unique. Passionate, informed support is not the same as blind allegiance.

                When it comes down to it, you’ve got to trust somebody. No candidate is going to be a sure thing as to how they act once they’re in office (see the last 7 years). Dr. Carter is just not the man for the job – not President. Ted Cruz, because of his lies and duplicity just cannot be trusted. All the rest – too much a part of the establishment to be trusted.

                You said in an earlier comment you thought Sundance had not looked into Trump enough. How do you know he hasn’t? Maybe there’s nothing of substance to find. Don’t you think if there was something that could be used against him, one of his many, many enemies would have found it? He’s had thousands of employees, worked with people all over the world – no one is shouting out objections.

                This election is it. I believe we either give Trump a chance to bring us back from the brink, or we lose the country.

        The Wayne Allen Root interview up thread was great, because he made the point that evangelicals gave their own stars aside from the tea party and the establishment. Palin’s pro-life credentials are unimpeachable. Nobody has made a more compelling case for the sanctity of life than Palin. The left and the establishment tut tutted that her family wasn’t perfect, but that’s the point. People in perfect situations don’t consider abortion. Palin promoted a culture of life saying when the choice comes, choose life, no matter how daunting it may seem at the time.

        Cruz really ticked me off questioning whether Trump had genuinely evolved on abortion over the years. I don’t think we should ever attack people’s motives if they are making a common point and bringing more people to our side, people who are persuadable. You catch more flies with honey.

        If the question is about Supreme Court appointments, Trump is right that Cruz lobbying for Roberts is a liability. Cruz knows it, too, because he says he’ll pick an “originalist” with a long paper trail. Roberts did not have this. That’s why so many opposed him, and Cruz went all out vouching for his character.

        Trump is correct in saying Thomas is a better asset to the right than Roberts. He should go a step further and use Cruz’ tactics on him. Say he would only appoint someone with a paper trail, unlike Roberts, when he was recommended by Cruz.

      The real problem w/ ethanol is it uses more energy to produce, than it provides per unit. That said, Cruz’s proposed legislation to cut the subsidies off overnight is one of the most ignorant, ill-advised I’ve ever read. The government encouraged farmers and industry to do what it wanted and needed the subsidies to make doing so profitable.

      IOW, the farmers and industry weren’t going there until the government set it up to get buy in. Pulling the rug out from under, costing jobs, plants, etc, is the height of foolishness.

      At least it’s US made energy and does provide decent paying jobs.

      Ethanol, on a list of all of our national woes and international troubles is so far down on the list, it’s genuinely a non-starter and is being used solely for the purposes of a wedge issue.

      In Cruz’s case, I suspect not only for donors…but also as another measure of his ideological purity. I cannot stand that smarmy hypocrite. Ugh.

      The side effects of these psychotropic drugs are horrendous. Homicidal and suicidal tendencies are common place while on these drugs.

        Some ‘helpful’ types inc 2 vets w/ PTSD are claiming that it’s no excuse for his behavior. Others are suggesting Track was troubled before his service and thus, has nothing to do w/ PTSD. My inexpert take is whatever shortcomings one had before PTSD are likely to be WORSE afterward,

    Sarah Palin, like Donald Trump, glories in political combat.

    Trump, unlike McCain, will use her to do just that.

    Trump not only intends to destroy the Wall-street Republicans hold on the Republican party, He is going to fracture the Democratic party coalition by pulling the entire working class of all races out of it.

    And as Trump blows through the politically correct structures the Uniparty has set up to protect their power, their only response will be:

    “You can’t say that because…politically incorrect.”

    Trump and Sarah willl simply say “Get used to it, there is more coming.”

    Score a lot for Sundance for seeing how that is going to play out.

    Love the fishing analogy Sundance !!

    Sarah Palin has endured attacks on her and her family since McCain announced her as his VP Choice .

    As the apparatchik media move in for the BAIT

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/track-palin-sarah-palin-adult-son-arrested-alaska-article-1.2502319

    to diminish and marginalize her on this story ……the same as Trump has exposed the MSM and the GOPe ..she will expose as Sundance said …the TRUE misogynists , sexists and most hateful among us . The vile she is about to receive would overwhelm most mere mortals ….as she sets the trap and waits for the snare to trip !!

    watch for it …” Sarah Palin’s son red neck values meets New York values ” and just enough people to sway Iowa will reel from these attacks on her !!

    EVANGELICALS WILL NOTICE !!! KEY TO IOWA !!

    They will literally be appalled at the level of attacks on this woman …She’s a brave soul !!

    I support her and Trump …….Sarah Palin is a proven kingmaker on the campaign trail .

    VP pick …I don’t think so as she is too polarizing …How about the woman who put her finger in Obama’s face on the tarmac in Arizona ….Governor Jan Brewer !! shes VULGARIAN TOO

    YOU are watching the KUNG FU MASTER of media . Entire books will be written but Trump needs your help on this . He needs you to maintain a civil discourse as this thing steps off . The Ted Cruz supporters will be the WORST in all this !! Don’t get drawn in to the hatred

    Keep calm …AMERICA ON !!

    Just like the game of SURVIVOR on TV …in the end you need the votes of the same people you took out to get to the nomination . Ultimately Trump need Cruzs supporters to some level to vote for him as the nominee .
    Many will get mad and join the surrender voter base . All registered and eligible to vote but ticked off at something enough to SURRENDER THEIR VOTE !

    The level of discourse we are about to witness will surpass anything I have seen in my lifetime . As Sundance points out in the post …TRILLIONS of dollars are at stake !!

    THIS is the point at which Sarah Palin draws the ire of the MSM and the GOPe right while Mr Trump collects endorsements and delegates .

    Our role is to elevate our game as supporters and stay out of the TRAP that Sarah Palin has set .

    When our enemies are clamoring to get at Sarah Palin ….step back from the fray and don’t be drawn in . Be magnanimous and gracious .

    By November the Cruz supporters will only remember how you acted toward them in their moment of desperation. They won’t remember any facts or even why they lost …only that YOU were considerate of their feelings at the time their guy lost !!

    THE ESTABLISHMENT wants voters …to STAY HOME !! don’t give them what they want

    just my opinion !!

      We do not need to act like trolls or leftists on the blogs. Answer them respectfully and with links, evidence, videos and quotes, as well as legal precedent.

      Sundance and Treepers provide a daily abundance of that.

      We must not stoop to their level – but maintain the highest standard of conduct as befitting the Lord and our candidate.

    The quadriplegic lib who reported for n.y. times rented the house right next door to Palin in Wasilla, to record the family’s every move. The same one who Trump accurately mocked.

    Sarah Palin’s re-emergence is making me think…

    Do any of you think that McCain et al deliberately LOST the 2008 election?

    At the time of the VP pick, Sarah was basically an unknown. It takes little to no effort to imagine the GOPe leadership, looking for a VP for a losing ticket, considering Sarah Palin nothing more than an unwashed heathen from a backwater state. Considering her to be a nobody, without any way to get in support, draw in crowds, or sway the election.

    And then, all of a sudden, Sarah shows up and starts kicking butt and taking names. Shows up and nearly upset the plan already in motion. Consider the absolutely over the top, vitriolic, knee-jerk vilification of Sarah by the media. Consider that McCain effectively muzzled Sarah.

    And now, Sarah’s effectively a power broker, backing the candidate that the GOPe wants desperately to disappear.

        I think the Uniparty also had a huge realization that they didn’t want Sarah Palin anywhere near power because she’d break every bone in their pathetic bodies.

        Pretty sure the Uniparty had fields of cows when Mama Grizzly started landing punches.

      Not that it matters now but I wondered the same back then . Why would McCain chain up the Alaskan Pit bull Sarah Palin from exposing Obama ?

      It may very well all be exposed now that McCain being full on uni-party was just an actor in the staged event called the election of 2008.

      As evidenced by all the establishment hit men out for Trump’s blood . Sunlight is the best disinfectant …Sundance too

      They kicked me out a couple of years ago. I mistakenly suggested a few other charities to contribute to other than the one they suggested. Wasn’t the first time so they must have been watching for me. The first time was when they were all in for Santorum who wasn’t even a good pimple on a real conservatives whtchmacallit. I of course was for Gingrich the only person with the bonifides to take on…well anyone. For some reason checked their site today. They’ve gone steadily down, from 30 k to 20 k and today it was 10k. That’s what happens when you specialize about the wrong thing. They also worship Levin.

    H/T & Thanks to Ladoj who left this over on Pamela Geller’s Blog. Pamela, who has a legitimate beef with TRUMP, has Jumped the Shark over Sarah joining TRUMP. Now she is also trashing Sarah. I won’t waste my time linking to her article, but a kindly soul, Ladoj, left this for Pamela to think about.

    It is a great reminder of who and what Sarah has gone through at the hands of our gubt.

    I had a wonderful thought this morning…pray that Donald Trump comes to know Christ .
    He is, at this time in his life, spending time around believers as he travels to these different states.
    Probably the first time he has been exposed to the Truth…where he could be influenced by people of faith.

    He needs the Lord as much as anyone else.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if he became a disciple of Christ.

      What makes you think he doesn’t???
      I think he lives his life of Spirit within. My father was like that. I strive to be like that.
      There is a picture posted here on occasion of Trump displaying a freshly signed RNC Pledge; he is turned toward the camera, seated at his desk, in his office, current work neatly stacked for perusal; and at the end of the desk, ready to hand, bright in window light, is a Bible.
      You know :: the kind you use a lot.
      One of his children, during a house tour, indicated a room devoted to displaying his extensive collection of old Bibles.
      There are other hints I have collected of Trumps quiet, steady side…
