We Remember Mississippi 2014 !
There is an expression:
“I will leave you naked before your enemies”…
A proactive assertion essentially stating: if you chose to engage in war with me – not only do I promise your defeat against my interests, but I will lay you open to exposure from all adversaries – who will then take advantage of your new vulnerability.
Presidential Candidate Donald Trump is doing a remarkable job filling the role behind this proclamation. In a seismic political shift Trump has gone far beyond drawing a line in the sand. He has openly dug a trench on his pre-selected battle space within conservative encampments.
Without any apology or hidden motive, he has filled the trench with a highly explosive electorate fuel (the result from years of Republican lies and deceit) and he is openly standing behind his formation twirling a Zippo while looking toward the deceivers.
As a direct result of this approach the enemy inside the wire is being forced to expose themselves. The various “Robert’s-The Bruce”, per se’, are in a precarious position of attacking -in vain effort to retain the necessary ruse- however, consequently exposing their alignment with usurping powers of Machiavellian intent.
A widely read initial letter to the conservative self-interested, “An Open Letter To Jonah Goldberg“ was never advancing the proposition that Donald Trump was the be-all-end-all harbinger of conservatism, nor was it a part of his campaign. Donald Trump is focused exclusively on simply Making America Great Again.
Those who follow politics know our motives for supporting Donald Trump are specifically because all other candidates represent a systemic problem of deception within the Republic. They are part of a machine which operates on scheme and graft. SEE: “Why I Support Donald Trump” Part I, Part 2 and Part 3.
We stand open with our motive – opponents do not. We have previously used the metaphor that our constitutional republic was akin to the most beautiful classic car ever created, a beauty that is now in desperate need of restoration.
This metaphor allowed us to present the question: Do we begin restoration to remove the rust with a ground up painstaking process intended to regain the full value, but will be exceedingly costly; or, do we as a nation once again put bondo over the rot and give it an appearance only paint job to maintain the impression?
Supporting Donald Trump means admitting the rot and disrepair we know exists. Supporting Donald Trump means not ignoring the insufferable issues evident by hiding problems, the rust, represented by Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, et al under layers of shiny paint (See: McCain, Romney, Jeb).
Trump has proposed, and many like-minded agree, we tear it down and begin an arduous but worthy process of rebuilding. Given that proposition, it would be silly to think we should take Lady Liberty to the restoration “finisher”.
We first need to take her to the world class “Trump body team” who will take her down to the frame, cut out the rust, and rebuild the foundation. This is the essential element in a proper restoration.
Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Jonah Goldberg, and to a larger extent all the insufferable talking heads inside the Gang-of-22 mindset, are presenting a conflated argument.
They decry the laying of facts for why it is better to take Lady Liberty down to the foundation (removal of the rot), by arguing the body team is not experienced enough in the art of finishing.
In doing so they both defend years of associations with vested interests (Beltway DC political crowd) who hold a like-minded view of the body politic (bondo just fine), by claiming restoration proponents are not delivering an appropriate curriculum vitae for the chosen “finishing” contractor.
However, worse than just defending the “status quo” approach, they hide their agenda and thus become “the enemy inside the wire” that Donald Trump is exposing.
… And I will leave you naked before your enemies !
After the fiasco that was John McCain, and after the ridiculous 2012 election cycle which ended with Mitt Romney, for over two years each of these “conservative voices” at one point or another have called for the broader conservative electorate, the generalized “right” or “center-right”, to unite in support behind one candidate who can defeat the leftist agenda, and WIN.
While railing at “drive-bys“, “corporate interests“, “manufactured politics” and various catch phrases, the voices of Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh have engaged a national audience and delivered opinion. Increasingly it appears it was all BS ?
Because for the past eight months a Republican front-runner has not only emerged, but has worked his ass off to earn the massive support he holds.
Have you noticed a campaign rally for Ted Cruz with 20,000+ in attendance? Have you seen Democrats switching parties just so they can support Marco Rubio? Are there grass roots websites helping Jeb-Democrats to register as primary supporting Republicans?
See the point?
Have you noticed another candidate, as in “any other” candidate, willing to put his butt on the line to unapologetically discuss, advocate and advance the same issues important to your audience? Well?
For 8 months only one candidate has waged war, when needed, against a corrupt industrial media complex in order to insure the delivery of his message, our message.
Only one candidate has pushed forward against the strongest adversaries in the media -forcing them to engage in policies, platforms and issue discussion they would never allow- and never backing down, always forward.
For eight months only one candidate has put his entire brand, reputation, financials and honor at risk – with zero self-benefit as an outcome of the effort. For eight months one candidate has campaigned for the most support, generated the most excitement, and coalesced the largest base.
One candidate. Working exhaustively.
Have you seen another candidate with polling showing such diversity in support? Have you seen 25%-40% black support for Cruz, or Rubio, or Jeb? Have you seen the pipe fitters union or any union openly stating their support for a blue collar billionaire?
Does anyone else carry such a consequential broad base? No, and no you haven’t.
Have you seen any other candidate lead the polls amid every age group, every gender, every category of personage with such dominance?
Have you seen another candidate hold so many campaign rallies in all of the important states? … with packed audiences? …with filled arenas? ….. with thousands-upon-thousands in attendance? …day-after-day-after day, often in the same week?
Have you seen another candidate’s audience response so committed, so engaged, so enthusiastic? No, no you haven’t.
Have you seen any other candidate directly align with the principles and positions of the majority of the patriotic working class, the middle class, The American Class?
Have you seen any other candidate willing to take on Wall Street, Tom Donohue and the parasitic U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is no longer representing national best interests but promoting ‘globalist’ best interests ? No, no you haven’t.
Have you seen any other candidate who is not beholden to the financial corporate interests of Wall Street? Have you noticed any other candidate with such overwhelming real and grass-roots financial support from “Main Street”, middle America?
No, being honest with yourself, you haven’t noticed that either.
So what is it exactly you are advocating for. You advocated for a specific action – for center-right Americans to come together and support a single candidate. These words were spoken by each of you, repeatedly, over the broadcast airways for the past several years. These are YOUR WORDS, not ours – YOURS – as broadcast.
While “coming together” middle America has been ridiculed, marginalized, assaulted, called names, belittled, disregarded, attacked, besmirched and ignored. We battled through, and retained our assembly.
So here we stand. Millions of us – right here in a big, broad, united group; the largest single mass of people in the entire center-right country; standing directly in front of you, just like you asked; and we have selected our candidate.
As we stand here staring directly at you, we present a single question:
…”Do you choose to be our enemy”?
