I do love the Trump insurgency.
I do hope he wins the nomination; it gives me everything I have always wanted. Sure he could beat Hillary (or Bernie) and become President –but then my attitude would be that if a plurality of people voted him in- then Americans would simply have gotten what they deserved, a culmination of idiocy that has been brewing for far too long, a poison that has been poised to reach the heart of the nation, a sickness that must be confronted head on.
President Trump would simply reveal a culture that had become so lacking in introspection, general knowledge, critical thinking and a reality so absurd that it cannot simply be explained within the confines of a single fairy tale—we will need to bring a Cornucopia of children’s literature to help us retain our sanity.
A President Trump, the fairy sugar daddy of them all, would mean that Americans are happy to stand naked in front of an international audience and declare “yes we a nation of morons” and here is our Emperor—who is also standing naked before all of humanity, for we are one. Now we are going to need mighty hands to cover our pride and joy—“Come on baby, drive me crazy goodness gracious great balls of fire”
So today we are facing a Great moment–Trump can indeed make us great again. He is the culmination of a number of factors.

Why don’t you try simply reading a book
Or could you just not bear to look
Imagine that we are all in one massive poker game. We have been on the sidelines terrified of losing money, but our cost of merely playing the game adds up. This has not worked–and by waiting for a big hand (people to simply use their brains) we constantly find our resources drained. We must go all in and win or lose everything.
Even the party with a small hand can win by merely bluffing.
I find this to be a more palatable option than someone like Rubio or Kasich taking the helm and somehow putting the pieces of Humpty Dumpty back on the wall and nothing really changing–all the kings men will simply continue to guide the inevitable slide into the Koch’s and clan Bran castle, situated in Galt’s kingdom—a lifeblood draining Oligarchy, which is an event that many argue has already happened. Regardless of who is correct I still hold out hope that such a path (or destination) is reversible.
So what great things has Trump done?
Well think about the Supreme Court. Justice Captain Antonin Hook, the rottenest of the rotten apples has gone off to Never Never land in order to rekindle his Childhood innocence and salvage his soul. Trump had a perfectly feasible idea–delay, delay, delay. Stick your finger in the dyke and try and save the day. But the people who built Trump never thought that their creation would gain self-awareness let alone immediately become more intelligent than his creators, who are now terrified of their own creation. No, these Walter Mitty’s (the Stupidparty establishment) have gotten so used to winning the day by dreaming up fantastical hateful nonsense and getting instant gratification that they thought that this could go on forever. By constantly playing to their base, they have become like the base—losing the ability to think critically. They ignore Trump’s advice and decide that they are simply not going to entertain any candidate for the Supreme court. Obama could nominate a Stupidparty hero like David Duke or Chuck Norris, the Riddler, the Joker OR the Penguin, and the GOP would still not even discuss the once in a lifetime opportunity to bring someone to the court so awful that this appointee would make Clarence Thomas look like Thomas Jefferson.
But it all gets greater, much greater.
Chuck Grassley – head of the Senate Judiciary (who probably knows how dumb this is) was pressured by the establishment to go ahead with this scheme. Now I strongly suspect that the party felt that they could get away with this because Obama is a Black guy who has somehow usurped the southern gentleman’s club, strutting around as if he is a member rather than the clubs landscaper. They might have gotten away with that–after all the birthers are still around to tell the story. But it seems that they did not consider the new landscape that they have just unveiled–the extreme likelihood that their monster would plant his bean and climb the stalk all the way to becoming their nominee–servant turned master.
So now look at the logic–they cannot look at any Supreme Court nominee until their sorry creation gets to pick one sometime after February 2017. It gets better. Chuck Grassley’s, the goliath of Iowan politics is up for election and is suddenly facing a strong opponent armed with sling full of irritated voters. Likewise John McCain is suddenly looking more vulnerable and I am sure more blowback will gradually build –since most people have contempt for the unconstitutional shenanigans that the Senate has embarked upon–all to allow Donald Trump to shape the future of the Supreme Court. This is a scenario that is likely to be far scarier to Conservatives than to progressives–if for no other reason than the Conservative brain is far more prone to fear. Their whole intellectual foundation is built on sand, and the big bad wolf is on the prowl.
Donald Trump has done more to expose stupidity than any other politician. He has done this by charismatically bringing all who fight him down to his level. This has been remarkably easy, because the trip is such a short one. He watches on with a bemused expression as Palin, whose foot in mouth will never fit into the glass slipper, endorses him in a manner that once again demonstrates just what a spiritually ugly imbecile she is.
Here is a list of reasons why Fagin Trump, the artful dodger, a con artist (when it comes to the gullible Stupidparty voters) is not the Conservative savior that they have been dreaming about— this list as provided by PHILIP KLEIN Managing Editor of the conservative Washington Examiner. Now normal people might consider some of this stuff as endearing, but always bear in mind that Trump is only interested in one constituent – Donald Trump.
- Trump has no actual political record, but his previous political persona is liberal
- He’s been a supporter of socialized medicine
- He thinks government should be empowered to trample on private property rights
- He will perpetuate the federal government’s war on youth
“Trump talks about the debt problem, but he has offered no plans for resolving it and would likely make it worse. He is opposed to broad reforms of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security – the primary contributors to our long-term debt crisis – and has made a laundry list of promised new spending, including on infrastructure projects.”
- He won’t respect gun rights
- Trump doesn’t care about protecting the unborn
- I don’t want Republicanism that’s served with an entree of racism and sexism
- I don’t want to spend more money because of his promised trade war
- Trump doesn’t care about policy
- He’s a megalomaniac who doesn’t understand constitutional limits on executive power
Trump spends an inordinate amount of his speeches talking about his sheer awesomeness. It’s tiresome and easy to mock, but it’s also a troubling character trait for somebody seeking the most powerful office in the world. During the Obama administration, conservatives have criticized his tendency to bypass Congress and attempt to impose his will through executive action. Trump has made a number of assertions that reveal his ignorance about the limitations of presidential power – such as his vow to give the death penalty to cop killers. This even though the president cannot simply execute criminals and the death penalty is governed by state laws in and its use in specific cases is dictated by courts. Add to this the fact that Trump has had kind words for the leadership styles of autocrats Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un.
Trump has built his candidacy on the idea that he’ll say whatever pops into his mind without fear. He’s attacked a reporter for being disabled, attacked John McCain for having been captured in Vietnam, claimed Cruz stole Iowa only to back off and then claim it again, bailed out of a debate because he didn’t like the moderator, repeatedly vowed to sue people, among other examples of his impulse control problems. It presents a troubling picture of how he’ll react if he doesn’t get his way in Congress or on the world stage.
11. He won’t appoint judges who will interpret the Constitution based on its original meaning”
Oh, and unlike this above mentioned conservative commentator we should not likewise fail to mention one vital educational titbit that Trump has so magnanimously provided, that George W Bush failed to keep the country safe, ignoring CIA warnings, misled the Country into war and failed to capture Bin Laden when he had the chance.
The irony – a party hoisted by its own petard. The artful dodger, the fraudster, the man best suited to take the Con out of Conservative.
But back to Palin: Trump heads into an Iowan church and that is evidently enough for her:
“He’s a multi-billionaire. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But, it’s amazing; he is not elitist at all. Oh, I just hope you all get to know him more and more as a person and a family man. What he’s been able to accomplish, with his, um, it’s kind of this quiet generosity. Yeah, maybe his largess, kind of, I don’t know, some would say gets in the way of that quiet generosity, and, uh, well, his compassion, but if you know him as a person and you’ll get to know him more and more, you’ll have even more respect. Not just for his record of success, and the good intentions for America, but who he is as a person. He’s not an elitist. And yes, as a multi-billionaire, we still root him on because he roots us on.”
I will let the Red State blog explain the sheer Greatness of this moment:
“She could have endorsed literally ANYBODY else running, but she threw her full-throated support behind a man who has said he identifies as a Democrat, has backed single payer healthcare, eminent domain, abortion, and a progressive tax on the wealthy. He has attacked real conservatives, shows a glaring lack of knowledge on most every important issue facing our nation, and covers it all with a gross layer of incivility and arrogance towards any who question him or hold him to task. He is all these things and will be the death of the GOP, or any chance of growing conservatism in this nation, again, if he is not stopped”
But Trump is going to have a lot more fun serving up indigestible scones at the numerous mad haters tea parties before he is done. Just watch how he has inspired his fellow candidates to reveal how absurd they truly are:
Having a circular firing squad of pathological liars calling each other pathological liars is truly a joyful and fulfilling experience. To have a group of individuals that makes the Romney Ryan Pinocchio duo seem virtuous by comparison is a phenomenon that surpasses reality, yet proves that fact can be stranger than any scary fairy tale. No fiction author could make this stuff up:
Trump wants to escape his ivory tower and mingle with the people in his private aircraft hanger.
But Trump is doing something amazing. He is not so much Frankenstein – he is more the Pied Piper. America has been suffering from ever increasing numbers of people who are no longer capable of critical thinking, they have withdrawn into their caves, they have intravenously hooked up their empty heads to Fox news, hate radio –all funded by the Oligarchs who live in Mordor ?– or Palm Beach or Galt’s kingdom.
But Trump – he has no interest in his Palm Beach neighbors, I am sure they regard him as vulgar. Trumps personal ambition is a threat to such Oligarchs – Trump is simply not capable of sharing power. Trump simple looks into his mirror and it will always tell him that he has the biggest and most powerful hands of them all. Trump has no interest in the party, or the party’s agenda. His way to power is to play his flute and encourage the army of Zombie brats hiding in their caves to come out into the open. That is precisely where I want them –but for different reasons.

Trump wants these poor souls to come out and destroy the Stupidparty establishment; I want them to do precisely the same thing, but then to throw themselves off the cliff (or watch President Trump do it). Well not really—rather shine the torch of truth and facts onto this sad mass of humanity, watch them confront their defeat (this moment would merely be delayed if Trump became president), see them go through the five stages of being a bunch of losers and eventually accept that they have found themselves so embarrassingly and pointlessly exposed . They no longer need to be night walkers, exposure to the sun allowing wisdom, dispelling the darkness within their hearts, the fears haunting the recesses of their brains and watch the expansion of their intellectual horizons. Freedom to be free of ignorance and bigotry, restoring patriotic pride in their Country’s maturity, no more shooting from the hip— adopting a new heritage of inclusiveness. May the Eagle soar safely over protected areas, cruising through clean air, gliding over pristine lakes and unpolluted landscapes. Now and only now they might be open to start using their brains, engage in critical thinking – become aware of the facts and see the obvious solutions –solutions that only Americans have not yet figured out.
As for Trump having made the US great – yes that will happen on one marvelous day, for his illusionary sun will surely set.
