Bill Whittle: “It’s a Miracle”…

Through the 2016 election Bill Whittle never believed.  He, like many other patriots, had lost all hope. Here’s his take:

      Whittle was not on the Trump Train either. I have always found him a little off-target anyway – enough to be called gas-lighting – or deflecting.

                I agree with you; Whittle has his place, but he seems to have blinders on; or his political philosophy is somewhat naive, lacking acuteness.
                I would recommend the work of Diana West during the primaries as she was exposing the nefarious underbelly of the neverTrumpers — very much like we learned from CTH, but with a somewhat difference emphasis. By recommend, I mean that Whittle could use his upcoming travel time to begin getting up to speed.
                And if he really wants an education, the voluminous archives of the late Lawrence Auster represent the best and most thorough treatment of what it means to be a conservative: a traditionalist conservative, that is; aka a real conservative.

                OK, I’m relatively new here. I’ve been reading articles for about a year or more, and started browsing through the comments during the primaries, so I don’t want to talk out of order or anything, but reading these posts I get the impression that you think that Trump is a Conservative.
                I voted for Trump, and am glad that he won, and I loved his Gettysburg speech – that was the moment that I became hopeful that he would actually accomplish something great. I am willing to believe that he believes these things, but I have seen little evidence yet to say that I am convinced. He was a Democrat for most of his life, and only recently became a Republican. I HOPE that he can embrace and advocate for genuine constitutional conservatism, but I have nothing more than words so far to convince me, and he has changed positions a lot over the years. He is a deal-maker, and a great negotiator – I fear that he will make deals and compromise, and call it the best he could get.
                So I guess my questions are:
                1) Do you believe that Trump is a conservative? and
                2) Why do you believe this?

                  Trump has been a Republican for several administrations. He supported both party candidates as a businessman in Democrat NY, as most businesses do.

                  His definition of Conservative is Constitutional and ‘conserving’ our fiscal assets (not over spending, balancing budget) conserving our security, conserving assets (protecting from fraud, theft, bad trade policies, etc.)

                  Our legislators, despite their protestations, are not very conservative. The Bushes are not all that conservative either, according to their debt, spending, use of our military, throwing billions to foreign governments, some unsavory such as Saudi Arabia.

                  Around here, we don’t think a lot about Will, Levin, Romney’s or Cruz’s pretense of conservatism.

                • IMO Donald Trump has been a republican since prior to the Reagan Administration.
                  Perhaps a reason that some interpret him a democrat in the past is because he’s a republican whose business is centered within New York City, a liberal democrat controlled environment. Donald Trump has publicly admitted that he’s made contributions to & attended events hosted by both sides of the political spectrum because he’s a businessman that’s had to grease both wheels to get stuff done.
                  I’ve no problem with Donald Trump’s early opinions regarding abortion, his maturity through life experience has enabled him to better see the light over the years & improve his viewpoints on life.

                  Welcome Chris, always glad to meet new people.

                  To answer your question Trump is a populist. I support him because he believes in and loves this country and it’s people.

                  I’ve been waiting for many years for someone to step forward who will stop illegal immigration and build a wall. Someone who will put America first, someone who who will re-negotiate our bad trade deals and punish companies who ripping off America by transferring our manufacturing jobs to low wage nations, then turn around and sell products back to us with no penalty. That is going to end under a Trump admin.

                  Trump will select conservative justices to the SCOTUS, so important to protect our constitutional rights. We don’t need liberal justices legislating from the bench. Trump’s SCOTUS picks will secure our rights for generations, securing our children’s future.

                  He will repeal and replace Obamacare, restore the rule of law, rebuild our military, rebuild our infrastructure and reach out to our allies to strengthen alliances from a position of strength . He has vowed to wipe out ISIS but does not want protracted wars that spill American blood and treasure.

                  For these and many other reasons I support Donald Trump. He’s the right person for the country at the right time and that’s conservative enough for me.

                  Chris, Here’s a rundown of Trumps political affiliations.
                  Republican (????-1999) Reagan/Bush/Clinton Years
                  Reform Party (1999–2001) I do believe he seriously thought to run on the Reform Party in 2000.
                  Democratic (2001–09) The Bush Years
                  Republican (2009-11) The Obama Years
                  Independent (2011–12) He was testing his own exploration at this time. Also donated to and campaigned for Romney.
                  Republican (2012-Present)

                  I read about a year ago that after serious consideration and even throwing out the idea of running, in 2012 he decided the field of candidates was very strong. Paying for his own campaign, he wisely waited until 2015 to run where the field of candidates were much weaker, and indeed it was.

                  The term ‘conservative’ has been a bit ‘used’ in the wrong way of late. What we have seen in recent years out of the so called conservatives within the Republican Party were anything but. Think of it as this. If the Republican’s in DC had really been as conservative as they ‘said’ they were, why did they fight the Tea Party so hard. Case in point: Mitch McConnell: ‘We are going to crush’ the Tea Party in 2014 elections.

                  Hence…Donald J Trump.

                  If you’ll notice he was the only one to take a stance on issues early on and spoke of his ideas as to deal with them. (Cruz mimicked much of Trumps talking points until the race became closer between them, then hastily put together a set of ideas.) His ideas are the most conservative plans to come out of DC in decades, in fact, I don’t think anyone ever had plans in DC.

                  OK, thanks for the great replies, I get it now.
                  I agree that the Conservative label has been distorted by the establishment, and needs careful definition – my own bias is to wait to see what they do, as opposed to what they say, but in DJTs case, we don’t have a record (as a politican) to go on, so I am cautious. I have been burned too many times by false conservatives (I am in KY, so ‘Mitch the b*tch’ is the toughest example for me), and find it hard to trust any of them.
                  I think that I have been disappointed so many times by the professional politicians that it is hard for me to have any real enthusiasm for what anyone in power SAYS that they will do. I cheered DJTs Gettysburg Address, but will really stand up and applaud when he makes some of those things happen. I just remember the promises the GOP made every election season, then failed to deliver.
                  I understand that he is not GOP (in the Uniparty sense), and that is a good thing as far as I am concerned, I just can’t tell if DJT has embraced conservative ideals, or just understood that these were the things to say to get out the base and win. I’m still too cynical to trust that this is a real revolution.
                  As I have told my friends since the election, I am cautiously optimistic.

He is God’s choice to bring America back to greatness – militarily, economically, morally, fiscally, industrially and even Spiritually. We need to support his good intentions with prayer. Unless this nation turns back to God, our hope and aspirations for a better future are futile.

        I think Bill’s biggest failing is his loyalty to his friends, Scott Ott and Steve Green. Ott has been rude and arrogant and just plain nasty to Trump and his supporters. I wrote to Bill on Facebook and in email expressing my opinion that they would diminish the good that Bill does.

        Bill has always been honest, and if he doesn’t always agree with me, that’s okay. The Scott Ott thing, however, caused me to drop my membership to billwhittle.com. I think Scott is an anchor, rather than an asset.

            Just because you don’t know about him doesn’t mean he hasn’t talked about it MANY times. He’s a UF dropout. His dad managed a large hotel on Bermuda and believe was in the military prior. His life was changed when he saw either the blue angels or the thunderbirds (can’t remember) at an air show on the island. Again, went to Florida but didn’t have the work ethic. While there he learned that he loved theater/movie arts. I believe that was how he ended up in Hollywood. Gah, I can’t remember it all but he’s never been mysterious about his shortcomings or life history. He’s just a regular guy who can spin a good yarn and communicate. Trump should have been everything he wanted in a candidate, however he didn’t support him until finally penning a letter saying how he intended to vote.

            That’s not really the case. He has written and talked a lot about his background. If you are interested, I’ll point you in the right direction.

            The basics: His dad, a WWII vet, was a hotel manager, and his mother was from England. Bill spent his earliest years in Bermuda, then the family moved to Florida. He has always been crazy about aviation and space travel, and volunteered as a teen at a planetarium. He is a pilot and has his own plane.He attended college in Florida, and later moved to California, where he got work wherever he could, including as a cab driver, and sometimes lived on the kindness of friends. He wasn’t successful for a very long time. There’s lots more!

          You hit the nail on the head. His libertarian friends have been a bad influence on him and he doesn’t want to lose his friends. He tried one time to defend Trump but gave up because it was in disagreement with Ott and Green. He’s a brilliant guy but that’s his weak spot. In my opinion he’d be fully on the Trump train if not for his associations with not just those two but other no Trumpers (libertarians) from his earlier days (cant’ remember the internet news show they started) Malkin was on it to. I wonder what his new girl friend is like? If she’s from the same group (likely) I think he’s going to be held back from the true popularity and support he would garner on his own.

              Me, too, Stella, re his engagement. Bill has always been a sweet man with a great heart for people and America. I shed a tear or two when he said he’d found a wonderful woman to share his life.

              His Eject, Eject, Eject columns were instrumental to changing my thinking from uber-left to conservative. If it hadn’t been for the Internet and reading the “conversion” stories of all the other libs who came in from the dark, I’d probably still be hanging out with the leftie Hollywood crowd and voting for Hillary.

              Though I disagree with Scott Ott’s stand as a NeverTrumper, the truth is he’s a devout and caring Christian man who had a blind spot regarding Mr. Trump’s virtues because Mr. Trump is a “street fighting” New Yorker who hides his big heart behind that roughness and occasional questionable language. Scott Ott and I pray to the same God, and I hope our God will bring him to an understanding that a man is never too old to change and grow as a human being, throwing out the rough and keeping the heart…just as a man is never too old to recognize the true value of a man like Donald Trump.

            I’d say that Bill is a bit more “libertarian” than Ott, (who is more of a traditionalist than anything) as he thinks marijuana legalization isn’t that much of a bad idea and has usually approached issues from a freedom-based perspective. A lot of the Never Trumpers including Ott were more of the Priesthood Rising type who believed that a perfect Christian with not a single moral stain would rise from whatever ashes were left from America after a Clinton victory. They perceive Trump as a threat to the Constitution even though he’s never advocated for actions that would break it, when Trump speaks like any normal American, it sends shivers down their “holier-than-thou” spines.

And he didn’t back stab Trump; he always said that he would vote for Trump as the nominee, even if Trump wasn’t his first choice. Lots of people felt that way.

You probably won’t like everything in it, because he criticizes Trump, but he also says that he wouldn’t try to change the mind of the American voters, who he respects (so much for the name calling). This video was made last January – long before Trump won the nomination.

                  OK – I watched the video and made notes:

                  Trump has never said he was for Single Payer Universal Healthcare. Trump has always talked about Privatized Health Care and Insurance companies competiting across state lines, but continue and strengthen Medicaid by cleaning out fraud and abuse. 3/2/2016 – https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/healthcare-reform/
                  Trump did not vote for Obama but endorsed McCain/Palin – http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/18/trump-endorses-mccain/ Trump said he admired Obama’s campaign style. Looks like Trump managed to accomplish something similar in 2016. Whittle did correct that statement – but there is no date to indicate when the correction was made. Was it prior to publication of the video or months later?
                  Eminent domain – Whittle casts a political pall on Trump. Without eminent domain, we can’t have roads, railroads, gas pipelines, etc. Trump didn’t take the ‘poor old’ woman’s home as alleged – it’s still standing. Eminent domain was NOT employed in that case. The woman was offered a huge amount of money, but refused it.
                  Supreme Court justices – Is Whittle insinuating Trump’s nominees would be leftists? (Trump’s lists 5/18/16 and 9/23/16 are stellar rock-solid Constitutionalists)
                  Is Whittle saying Trump contradicts conservative principles? Or not? As the election went along, we certainly saw that ‘consistent, conservative’ Cruz was not as conservative as he pretended. Nor were Levin and the NRO 22 authors. They were globalist/amnesty wolves in conservative sheep’s clothing.
                  Did Trump and his supporters call others names as Whittle insinuated – or did the cocktail class, elite pundits and politicians call Trump and his supporters names (whackos, crazies, vulgarians, red-necks, uninformed, un-educated, deplorable, etc.) I think we know the answer to that. And, as Sundance said, it looks like the cocktail class stayed home and refused to vote for a sovereign, strong, solvent America.

                  Sorry, Miss Stella – but my feelings about Mr. Whittle are not changed by this video.

                  There are things in that video that I don’t agree with either, but you were WRONG to say that Whittle was a Never Trump, and WRONG to say that he supported Bush and Romney. You are also WRONG to insinuate that WHITTLE is part of the “cocktail class that stayed home and refused to vote for a sovereign, strong, solvent America.” Sundance doesn’t agree with you about that, so don’t invoke his name to strengthen your opinion.

                  Neither was WHITTLE a buddy of Levin or the NRO authors that you describe try to lump him with as globalist/amnesty wolves in conservative sheep’s clothing.

                  Trump did support Universal Health Care when he was thinking of running for Pres back in 1999: If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. I mean, it’s no good. So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better. … and I think it is. It’s an entitlement to this country, and too bad the world can’t be, you know, in this country. But the fact is, it’s an entitlement to this country if we’re going to have a great country. http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/stories/1999/10/08/trump.transcript/

                  I agree that the eminent domain statements were taken out of context.

                  As you pointed out, Bill admitted he was wrong about Trump voting for Obama, and apologized for the error. When he apologized isn’t important really. he did it. Trump also endorsed Romney, so nobody is always right, are they?

                  So you are WRONG at least as often as Whittle. Should I shun you?

      • Agreed. I noticed in this video Bill Whittle didn’t really mention DONALD TRUMP nor congratulate him. Instead he went on about himself and a quick excusing of the never trumpers who caused Trump and us so much pain and trouble and wasted so much time and energy.

        If he did and I missed it I apologize, but I found Whittle’s video odd because it was about being happy that Hillary and them are crushed but no mention of all Donald Trump gave for America to be the one to lead this. We all had a collective part in the defeat of the wicked witch of Arkansas but we would be fools to think we could’ve done any of it without a leader like Trump at the helm.

        The nevertrumpers, no Bill, we don’t just forget and go on and no Bill they cannot just climb in our fun bus as though they paid their ticket like nothing ever happened. They need to at least publicly apologize AND recognize Trump and all he’s done for America.

        I think at the root of a lot of this jealousy of Trump is the fact that God chose him and not them. They think God chooses religious people but obviously He chooses whom He pleases and whom pleases Him. And this is what they are so jealous about. Just like Joseph and his brothers who were so jealous of him and the favor God gave him that they sold him to slavery and who became a great king. They think they are so “good” and “righteous” with their churchianity or whatever worldly criteria they’ve applied to God and they all missed God’s pick because of it. Now they just want to hop on the bus without a ticket. God can chose a donkey to speak for Him if He so chooses and in the bible that actually happened. These men need to drop their over-inflated pride and stand side by side with Trump and recognize!

        I say buy a ticket or walk!

        If Bill Whittle was so “in tuned” then why did he make a video for both Hillary and a Trump win? He didn’t know Trump would win? How is that possible for a man who says they know God? If he knew God he would’ve easily seen God’s hand on Trump from the beginning. Same with the nevertrumpers. Same with Cruz. Same with a lot of these pretend “men of God.” And now they cannot even admit it? And it’s not just the religious self-righteous type, it’s the Mark Cubans and others too. All who could not and would not see God’s hand on Trump and literally lived each day to torment and tear Trump down.

        Yes there’s forgiveness but these men cannot even apologize? Buy a ticket or walk!

          Here’s what I got from the video. When we have discussed NeverTrump on CTR, it has typically been with regards to pearl-clutching politicians and talking heads who came up with bogus reasons they couldn’t follow their “conscience” and vote Trump. This includes people like Mitt Romney and John Kasich and Bill Kristol. We know these are bogus reasons because these people were always in the pocket of Wall Street as part of the UniParty. It was always about the money, the pearl clutching was just a front. These people will never apologize, and they can’t disappear into the night soon enough. To these people, good riddance.

          What I think Whittle was talking about, though, are the poor fools who let themselves get convinced by professional NeverTrumpers, or let themselves get convinced by relentless media gaslighting that Trump was deplorable and never had a chance (I think it’s the latter that Whittle himself falls under). He’s talking about the people who still suffer from “Battered Conservative Syndrome”. The people who lost hope because the elites made them lose hope. Whittle slowly started coming around to Trump and now that Trump won he has no reservations about boarding the Trump Train. There will still be people who either reluctantly boarded the Trump Train, or call themselves conservative and refuse to follow Trump. Now that Trump has been elected President, these people have no goal. We could hold it against them, refuse to let them join the fun bus without first apologizing. Or, we could invite them on the fun bus, convince them that President Trump will be great for them (which is a lot easier to do now that NeverTrump has no goal and no message), and that he will Make America Great Again, and help cure them of Battered Conservative Syndrome.

          The professional NeverTrumpers will never apologize. Forget them. The regular people who fell for it, however, are our fellow Americans. We should heed Donald Trump’s call, “to bind the wounds of division”. Forgive them, show them the truth, help them break out of the cycle of Battered Conservative Syndrome, and lets celebrate and Make America Great Again together.

            Jeb Bush & Ted Cruz refused to honor the pledge they & the other republican candidates made to support the nominee. Bush did his thing & then faded away, but Lyin Ted Cruz refused to swallow his pride & instead actively campaigned against Donald Trump. Cruz worked against the movement & in doing so he betrayed every republican & American that supported the movement to save America from the globalists. Cruz is an adulterous, deceitful egomaniac that dishonored the people he swore to represent. Republicans have a big enough mountain to climb without having deceitful moles sabotaging efforts, I hope to God that the Republican Party primaries Cruz in 2018 & gets his wretched axx out of there.

          TRUE STORY: Franklin Graham’s OPERATION CHILD CHRISTMAS-Samaritan Purse where you fill a shoebox for a needy child. One year our Church announced they were doing the Christmas boxes for the needy children. Toothbrushes, soap, cups, dish, toys, washcloth, clothes, whatever can fit in the size of a SHOEBOX. So I went out and filled a box full of things for a child. But I noticed I had a lot of items left over so I decided to get another box and fill that with the extra things, but then I noticed it was not quite full so I got another box and the same thing kept happening for weeks until I had filled 33 boxes.

          I kept watching my credit card go up and up but I could not help myself. It was so fun and rewarding filling those boxes so I through up my hands and just kept spending.. After it was said and done and the postage it came to a whopping $900.00! I was sort of sick to see that big bill but I had so enjoyed doing the packages that I frankly didn’t care.

          But what happened next was amazing. I went to pay a the balance I owed for a bill of $465 for a crown (dental work) but when I went to pay they said my bill was only $11. The $465 WAS the discounted price (original price without my insurance would’ve been around $1200.). So I was surprised to hear her say I only owed $11. So I saved around $450 !!

          Next thing that happened I sent a check for $450 to my HOA for my home owner dues for the new year but it came back returned to me. I called them and they said “we show your account had already been paid.” I said how can that be? I don’t recall ever paying twice last year?” I checked all my records and there was no record that I had doubled paid the year before. Also, it would be very hard to “forget” $450 twice surely I would’ve noticed that for sure! So I called her back and told her there must be a mistake, but she insisted and said no, you do not owe anything. Our records show you are paid up for the entire year. Another $450 saved!

          So there was my $900 reimbursed back to me. This is when I really knew how wonderful and of God that Samaritan Purse program for the children is. FRANKLIN GRAHAM IS THE ONE THAT STARTED THIS CHRISTMAS PROGRAM!

      There is no way for me to know, but my belief is that the election results were a consequence of Hillary’s vote hack and a counter hack by some other group. Truth be known, Trump had a landslide turnout, but that was screwed with.

          As Trump, you and other remark, the work has just begun. Putting the MSM where they belong and leveraging the GOP to get the right leadership is necessary for a lasting and substantive “path forward, together”…. What a BS line, lets just make America Great Again!

        • Bill needs to be HUMBLED. He lifts up the nevertrumpers higher than he lifts up Trump. I didn’t hear him mention Donald J. Trump’s name in respect nor honor once. Yet Trump was willing to take a bullet for him and all of us Americans. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13]

          And by “honor” I mean at least a simple THANK YOU and gratitude. If the nevertrumpers want forgiveness let THEM come and ask. We don’t need Bill to be their advocate. Let them pay for their own ticket or walk!

          Just think of all the times that the attempts against Trump’s life were thwarted that we never heard about. Talk about being under sniper attack. And what did the nevertrumpers do when Trump supporters were getting beaten up like little old ladies getting punched and terrorized at rallies? They BLAMED THE VICTIM! PUBLICLY BLAMED EVEN TRUMP HIMSELF!! Now that O’Keefe exposed the Dems were paying agitators to do this stuff HAVE ANY OF THE NEVERTRUMPERS COME FORWARD TO APOLOGIZE? Or even recognize how wicked they were to blame us and Trump?

          Nevertrumpers must get through this, buy a ticket, before they can get on the bus. Otherwise walk.

            I’m sorry, Monique, but that’s crap. Bill Whittle made this video 14 months ago. Trump wasn’t his favorite candidate, but he makes the very important point that Donald Trump is much, much, better than Barack Obama.

            Bill Whittle is not, and has never been, a NeverTrumper. He had a different preferred candidate, which many people did. In American politics, that’s allowed. It’s what makes our country great.

            What bugs me about a lot of the people who have been hanging out here the past year is that you insist that everyone must pass some made-up loyalty test. Support DJT without question, or you must be banished as a troll.

          That’s what is so odd about it. Whittle did a magnificent video after Bamster was elected stating the the GOP predicting that someone from the “pop culture” world would be needed to step up to the plate for a viable candidate instead of pallid people like Romney etc. So when it did happen, (and who could better understand how broken our government is than a businessman who lost millions from the financial crash caused by bad policy) and Mr. Trump took on the monster – Whittle should have been first in line to support him. His political and cultural analysis is clear and articulated well; he knows the power of the media to shape young people towards appreciating and understanding our political heritage as a good thing in the world. Was hugely disappointed with this because before finding CTH, Whittle’s essays, Stratosphere lounge webcast, and Firewall videos were about the only thing clearly pointing out the gaslighting and machinations of leftists in our country…..

Or they couldn’t deal with his personality. Or something. That’s a world of difference to those GOPe NeverTrumpers, who hated and still hate, the message.

      DarnHardWorker,

      If you recall in the beginning of the video, Bill Whittle said, “We now have a man who is totally unqualified to be president…” As if the usurper Muslim was qualified. Trump is/was the president of a large International Corporation, employing literally thousands of people, obama never signed the front of a checking his life.

      BECAUSE TRUMP IS NOT A POLITICAN And a good deal of his campaign was self-funded, he will have no special interest groups who ‘invest’ big donations, looking for their ROI.

      I was hoping that Bill Whittle ‘clarified’ that remark, but unfortunately he didn’t. This not to say, that I am not a fan of his, he usually ‘tells it like it is’.

        I can forgive him because I look at it this way…..do you think George Washington told volunteers to go back home, that they were not needed in the fight because they didn’t join the cause early on? More likely he said…glad to have you on board….better late than never.

So the analogy would be more accurate to say that these latecomers want to come to the battlefield without any proper weapons. And THAT is not how a war is won. And George Washington’s late comers DID recognize him as their general.

          These men must align and stand with Trump in battle and carry arms of truth and recognize Trump is their leader. Late comers welcome but not if they are not prepared for the battle. Recognizing the leader is a prerequisite.

When you have to put out a statement the week before the election saying who you are voting for, then you don’t get to make a video acting like ‘WE’ did it. Sorry but you weren’t a part of the WE. As the song says, it’s too late to apologize. We have recorded and taken into account all the false ‘Conservatives’ and their actions to not support the nominee. Maybe in time others will forget, however this was personal and when someone you respected lets you down that bad, you remember it forever.

        Part of that miracle, however, is NOT to sit around expecting it will cost nothing. It may, but we should never assume it will be free. It could come at the cost of years; it could come at the cost of incarceration for “crimes” declared by an uncaring governing body (Saint Paul); it could come at the cost of losing everything before gaining it back (story of Job).

        America was at the brink of losing it all with the possibility of never gaining it back. But God answered our prayers–the billions of prayers thrown up during these last months prayed specifically for the man we perceived could fulfill that role of keeping America from going over the precipice.

        And WE are a miracle, too…we caring, loving and concerned Americans who worked hard, diligently and with great purpose to bring this about. God and man–a great partnership.

When Trump came on the scene, we knew this was the man. Rush never endorses anyone, just gives fair treatment to any candidate. We listeners knew Rush was for Trump (I believe his brother was anti-Trump). His program provided valuable information about both candidates.

He has done a remarkable job educating the people about what is at stake in this election . . . no other program on TV has done that. Most importantly, he was well-informed enough to not let any Dem talking points stand, as all the others did. I’m new here so I can’t compare Sundance to Rush, but what I have seen is excellent. Comparing the written word with a radio show is not comparable. If you read Rush’s words, they too, are excellent. A live radio program can contain fillers, be repetitive and contain uninteresting (to the listener) topics.. But I have found the hard information gleaned from his programs are the best. He also has the gift of making a worried listener cool and calm amidst a storm (a lot of those in the last 8 years). I find Sundance too, is the calm within the storm.

    From a foreigner’s viewpoint, Whittle has long felt in his gut the problem of the progressive mindset and has been trying to articulate it, but was somewhat limited in his analysis by his personal experience and not being able to step out of the fog of toxic mess to really see it. A couple years outside the US, come back and the horrible dysfunction everywhere is glaringly obvious. Glaringly. So plainly, Whittle at first couldn’t foresee or see how Trump had what it took to cut ’em off at the ankles, but this week he’s in stunned awe – not unhappy at all about what he perhaps once believed was an impossible achievement.

    Trump may be the last president of the USA! This is definitely a biblical double en tender to let us know Trump signals the end of days (but not in an evil way like the liberals think in their perverted view, as they see Lucifer as the Lightbringer and Knowledge Giver, we know he is EVIL!). Donald Trump is our end times King David, our Good King Hezekiah in a time of moral decay, to reform the nation from evil and prepare us for the second coming! And yes, I know all about his life story and various moral failings, I know he is on the right path with God and his instincts are RIGHTEOUS! That is the Holy Spirit speaking to him wisdom that most of our religious leaders don’t have.

    Stella, you asked me to watch this video:

    I did and made notes:

    1) Trump has never said he was for Single Payer Universal Healthcare. Trump has always talked about Privatized Health Care and Insurance companies competiting across state lines, but continue and strengthen Medicaid by cleaning out fraud and abuse. 3/2/2016 – https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/healthcare-reform/

    2) Trump did not vote for Obama but endorsed McCain/Palin -http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/18/trump-endorses-mccain/ Trump said he admired Obama’s campaign style. Looks like Trump managed to accomplish something similar in 2016. Whittle did correct that statement – but there is no date to indicate when the correction was made. Was it prior to publication of the video or months later?

    3) Eminent domain – Whittle repeats the left’s talking points to cast a negative pall on Trump. Without eminent domain, we can’t have roads, railroads, gas pipelines, etc. Trump didn’t take the ‘poor old’ woman’s home as alleged – it’s still standing. Eminent domain was NOT employed in that case. The woman was offered a huge amount of money, but refused it.

    4) Supreme Court justices – Is Whittle insinuating Trump’s nominees would be leftists? (Trump’s lists 5/18/16 and 9/23/16 are stellar rock-solid Constitutionalists)

    5) Whittle seems to be saying Trump contradicts conservative principles? As the election went along, we certainly saw that ‘consistent, conservative’ Cruz was not as conservative as he pretended. Nor were Levin and the NRO 22 authors. They were globalist/amnesty wolves in conservative sheep’s clothing.

    6) Did Trump and his supporters call others names as Whittle insinuated – or did the cocktail class, elite pundits and politicians call Trump and his supporters names (whackos, crazies, vulgarians, red-necks, uninformed, un-educated, deplorable, etc.) I think we know the answer to that. And, as Sundance said, it looks like the cocktail class stayed home and refused to vote for a sovereign, strong, solvent America.

    Sorry, Miss Stella – but my feelings about Mr. Whittle are not changed by this particular video.

    Sorry for coming late to the party. I feel your pain Sundance about posting something and so many commenting without even reading, watching, etc.

    “Donald Trump, that speech tonight was superb. If you’ve been watching me starting with the third debate I would say this is not he same guy. I would criticize Trump because I thought he was dropping opportunities to defeat these people. My job is to be honest, truth is my profession, I’d like to think that it is anyway.” 8:40 into the video

    Whittle was never a “NEVERTRUMPER.” He has been fighting for conservatism for years. Thank you Stella and team for introducing me to Whittle during the Trayvon/Zimmerman case. When I first started listening to Trump I thought this is what Whittle has been talking about and was surprised he was not more forthcoming in support of Trump but Trump seemed to have come in a wrapping they did not expect (Jesus came in a manger not with an army {Trump is not Jesus}).

    I recall Whittle after Romney lost, saying things along the lines of conservatives need to go into the cities, the democratic strongholds and say this is what I am presenting and giving them an option rather than ignoring them. Trump did just that.

    Bill Whittle is fighting his own fight. He has a pocket of people fighting for the resistance and he will never stop. His approach is different and every goal is not identical to that of the Treehouse but he is fighting for the same outcomes as the people here.

      If we review Trump during the primary and Trump during the general, it’s plain there are two wildly different Trumps — Trump’s first job was to get rid of the mass of primary candidates by acting like Jon Stewart – he mocked them out. Only unlike Stewart who promoted stereotypes, Trump hit genuine weaknesses in each candidate. They proved to the public they couldn’t figure out how to defend themselves and dropped out one by one.
      Then Trump campaigned as Winston Churchill.
      This confused the pundits. Obviously they aren’t used to such an adaptive and clever person. They begged him to stop the ‘juvenile’ behavior. But logically, Trump could not have built the business he has by behaving like Stewart, therefore it was a savvy and bold tactic designed expressly for the primary – the goal was to eliminate the competition ASAP. Once the nominee, Trump then shifted to what was needed to capture the public in the general. Clueless pundits applauded his ‘growth.’ Among the typical punditry, the lack of comprehension of the complexities that Trump is used to handling every day in his business is rather embarrassing.
      It’s also terrifying to look back at last year’s line-up being completely eviscerated on their very first outing on stage – how utterly bottom tier and un-equipped they were to run against Hillary’s machine. Pull Trump out of that line up and consider who the political class had put up. Terrifying.

    Whittle was very gracious to those of us who have been with Trump for a long time. That was very much appreciated.

    This was a hard election. We had 16 ways (maybe 17) to bring down The Eye of Sauron, and picking the one that could do it was hard. But we did it.

    Much wisdom in what Whittle says. But this most of all. NOW is the time for us to actually do it – to make America great – with the left kicking, screaming, and spitting, every inch of the way.
