Trump Hits a Home Run

Trumpby Anniel11/22/15
I had made a pledge to eschew politics for now. It lasted just a few weeks. And to think that today I’m using a sport’s theme astounds even me. But — here I go.

I have only been to one Big League Ballgame. It was in Detroit back in the day when it was a great city. I was given a free ticket to a Tigers’ game, so why not go? Oh, it was so much fun. Shocked, I found I was caught up in the emotional excitement and found myself shouting for the home team.

To me, Donald Trump was a big, bad businessman I had heard about from time to time, but reading “The Art of the Deal” wasn’t big on my list, and, as a compulsive Gambler, I stay away from Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Heck, I don’t even play Bingo. Needless to say, I don’t hang out with the Trump kind of crowd.

This election season rolled around and I heard all the hoopla about Trump. Fed up with “politics as usual” I heard sound bytes about him but never really took the time to listen to what he had to say. I just knew I agreed with him on building the fence and securing the border.

I read some articles and followed some debates. Trump impressed me but Cruz would have been OK, too, although I was leaning towards Trump, much to some of my children’s horror. They don’t have to agree with me, nor I with them.

Two weeks ago I decided to finally listen and pay attention to a couple of Trump’s rallies. I was so impressed with the way he conducted himself and the people he gave a chance to speak, particularly the ones from the Remembrance Project whose loved ones had been brutalized and killed by illegal aliens. Everyone was in tears, including me.

When he requested the media to pan the cameras to show the size of the crowd, and they absolutely refused, was very telling. They do try to stack the deck if they think they can get away with it.

I was also impressed with the way he spoke to the American people as “we”, never “I”, especially when he used the theme “Making America Great Again.” WE will do it together.

The reaction of the Beltway gaggle to Trump and his followers shows how out-of-touch both parties are to the regular Americans in the Heartland. The Democrats are totally worthless, and the Republicans, for the most part, aren’t any better, so insulting to their own base.

Then came Donald Trump, speaking in Hartford, Connecticut at a Townhall. Asked to speak as a fill-in at almost the last minute, he was upbeat and funny, then he ended the meeting, boldly saying:

“THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GET IT. THEY’RE NOT STUPID. THEY ARE SMART, REALLY SMART, AND THEY SEE THE TRUTH. DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE.”

I was suddenly watching a Home Run with the bases loaded, and I was back cheering a Major League team again. My heart leaped, my spine straightened, and my lungs filled with fresh air. I said to my husband, “That’s the moment Trump won the election. All he needs to do is repeat his love for and trust in the people that way and no one can beat him.”

So, “Take THAT Barack Obama, Slimy Harry and Nancy Pelosi, Josh Earnest and all you other liars. Take THAT Hillary Clinton and John Kerry in the State and Loretta Lynch in the Justice Department.Take THAT all you Rinos who have disgraced yourselves and called us names. Take THAT Charlie Rose, Chris Matthews, and other members of the lame stream media who think you’re so much better than the American people. Stop what you are doing.

There is more than enough blame to go around for causing the peril we live in. The race hustlers and traitors abound. It is still beyond me why they don’t see their OWN danger.

I believe more than ever that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God who loves this land, raises up men for the times each generation faces. We have to recognize them when our time comes. The George Washingtons, the heroes may not be who we expect them to be.

God Bless America. • (1104 views)

    I forgot to mention that I’m giving up Oreos as soon as our last package is finished.

    Our middle son came over to plow a foot of snow out of our driveway today. I talked to him about Trump and he was telling me what he didn’t like about him. After some discussion he said, “Well, I can tell you love him and think he’s sexy.” “Sorry”, I said, “But I have no desire to kiss him, just vote for him and tell you why you should.”

    We’ll see how nasty the Dems and Rinos get.

      To be fair, the reason businesses move overseas is usually the high corporate income taxes in America. Some specific businesses move away for specific reasons. High sugar prices (a result of import quotas at the behest of large sugar cane planters) drive some producers of candy elsewhere, and this may also be the case with Oreos. A friend once mentioned that football equipment is made in foreign countries even though the game is only played here — because of the legal system.

      What’s the saying, “there is none so blind as he who will not see”?

      The attack on Pearl Harbor, the trigger to WWII, was a day that really did go down in infamy. Another day that should be similarly noted, is the day that the most recent Omnibus Spending Bill was passed by both the House and Senate and quickly signed into law by a simply radiant President. Euphoria, anyone? We can now add Paul Ryan to the list of multitudes that have partaken of the Beltway Cool Aide (sp). He has crossed the proverbial line, never to return to the ranks of the honorable and trusted. Along with him march the multitude of Representatives and Senator’s that, behind Speaker Ryan’s lead, boldly sold us out.

      The reason I mention Paul Ryan and his sellout minions is because it leads into the reason Donald Trump is leading in the polls: we have been sold down the river for decades now by both parties and we know it; we know it! To rub salt in our festering wounds they exempt themselves and their loved ones from the odorous and disgusting laws they shove down our throats. It is absolutely infuriating. It sets one’s hair on fire and leads to an angry and deeper frustration. Are the leaders of our country living in some kind of parallel universe? Are they on the same planet we are? What the hell is going on in Washington, D.C.? Answer: those elected into power are only using the power we trusted them with to feather their own nests and future well being. They are not cognizant of the concerns and hopes of the average man on the street, at least not the streets in middle America, not the streets we live on. And, relative to those that are cognizant, they have made the personal decision to disregard the wishes and will of the people. Why not? They have been getting away with this type of incredulous behavior for decades. What is the incentive to change? Even with the threat of Donald Trump, Senator Cruz and others, they carry on with some unknown inner assurance that their actions will never bite them in the posterior; there will be no consequence of any consequence. They think they can rig the system with a brokered convention or stop Trump and others by shoveling hundreds of millions of PAC dollars at besmirching their records and honest intentions. Their message to us, Mr. and Mrs. America, is, “Up yours”. And they are probably right. Please tell me where I am wrong here. Please convince me I am wrong. The fate of our country DEPENDS on me being wrong.

      I am one of millions of people who have had enough. I am mad enough to spit. I am near the breaking point. I am in the corner and. as the tormented reporter in, “Network” lamented, “am not going to take it anymore” (or something like that). That is why I support Donald Trump with every fiber and being in my body and soul. I am only one vote. Eventually there will be enough single votes to run the liars, criminals and misfits that are presently leading our country out of office and keep them out. It is possible to achieve term limits and send honest people into office who will remain honest through their one or two terms in office. Let’s quit hoping and start doing. Let’s roll the dice and put Mr. Trump or some other “non-politician” in charge. What have we got to lose? Anything we might think we have to lose has already been lost, folks. Take a deep breath and support Donald Trump for President with an “all in” attitude and tell your neighbors and friends there is a super hero on the horizon named Trump they need to cast a vote for.

      P.S. Please don’t give up your Oreo’s. They are one of life’s greatest and least harmful guilty pleasures.

        I have read a number of articles citing scattered good points in the misbegotten omnibus deal. For example, it took action against the pernicious practice of civil asset forfeiture (which is just a form of blatant government theft), and provides several protections for free expression from the Fascist Messiah and his Obamacrats. It kept Marco Rubio’s ban on subsidizing risk corridors, though apparently at the expense of providing a special tax break for insurance companies.

        What makes things interesting is that none of these defenses come from the GOP leadership in Congress. Ryan, unlike Boehner and McConnell, is supposed to be capable of articulating his views well.

        And yet it never occurred to him to explain what was good about the bill, and to attempt the argument that this was the best that could be achieved under the circumstances. Does the GOP leadership really want to help Trump? Because that’s what their fecklessness is accomplishing. Or are they so isolated from their grassroots voters that they still don’t realize what they’re doing?

        • dbafox says:

          Timothy Lane stated some excellent points. I think he knows a great deal more than those who voted on the bill. They certainly didn’t have time to read the 2,000 plus page document prior to pulling the trigger in support of it. Timothy would be a better speaker than Ryan in that he would have been able to put forward an understandable and credible defense. Speaker Ryan subsequently said that, “we will do better in 2016”, but, minus the positive points that Timothy pointed out, the damage to his credibility was already done.

      • Anniel says:

        dbafox – Nice to hear that you, too, have had enough. Yes, Paul Ryan deserves to live in infamy, as do George Will, Mr. Krauthamer, and Jonah Goldberg. I keep trying to hold on to good spirits, but some days it gets difficult. And I cannot help but wonder what goes on in the heads of liars who don’t even care that we know they are lying. Look into the pits that have become Paul Ryan’s eyes and you see graphically what happens to a man who loses his soul.

        I dream of the day when I can eat another double stuffed Oreo. Soon, I hope.

    You go, girl! Reading your post made me very, very happy.

    I’ve been in a pitched battle over at Ricochet about the reflexive Trump bashing by supposedly enlightened and educated “conservatives”. Yeah, scare quotes! My first inclination here was to copy and paste Anniel’s post in its entirety. I’ve been saying the same thing, with far less eloquence for a couple of months now.

    My latest salvo on Ricochet was in response to a question asking me why I think Trump loves the USA. It’s simple. When he speaks, which he does well extemporaneously, my brain is not processing in the background, wondering what his angle is, whether I should follow the money, whether there is treasonous ideology involved, or any other such time-wasting and useless garbage. I believe he actually is transparent, that he trusts me, and will be good for our nation.

    My second point was that this is true in spite of apparent errors on Trump’s part. I’ve worked with and for very driven and successful people in business, and while they can be a pain in the patoot, when the benevolent effects of success wash over the cohort, all is well. The tired adage about the rising tide happens to be true, not deserving of the opprobrium often flung like monkey poo at entrepreneurs by progressives. So, Trump gets a pass on some goofiness, and in a weird sense, even increases my fervor and desire for a return to national greatness.

    Thanks, Anniel!!!

    • Anniel says:

      Tom,
      Thanks for the kudos. You’re pretty eloquent yourself, but feel free to cut and paste me at will if you think it will help.

      • Tom Riehl Tom Riehl says:

        Thanks for your permission. That particular thread is a bit old now, so I’ll save your words for the next pitched battle. I have no numbers to back up my assessment, but I think the reflexiveness is waning. World affairs, both here and there, are driving sane people to re-evaluate their positions, likely for self preservation.

    Whatever happens, Trump has done the nation a great service by speaking in a non-P.C. manner. By itself, his highlighting of the corrupt and self-destructive immigration policies of the left and Chamber of Commerce types is reason to praise him.

    I hope he continues to take a wrecking ball to the left and establishment Republicans as the country desperately needs to destroy the political plutocracy which now lords over all of us. We are far beyond, “politics as usual”.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      The interesting thing is that so many GOP candidates are so unwilling to learn from what has made Trump popular. They’re owned by the elites, so they can’t even fake being populists.

    • Anniel says:

      KFZ,
      I wonder how many of our fellow citizens understand what a debt of gratitude we owe the Donald. BTW, my son was impressed when he heard that Trump was the one who quietly got Sgt. Tamaroosi out of Mexico and helped him when he got home. Trump appears to be a generous man.

    Regarding GOP presidential candidates, Hot Air had a link to an article on PJ Media providing 10 reasons why Ted Cruz is the best choice. The article notes that Cruz has sound conservatives views on economic and foreign policy, that he is an outsider (a necessity to even start on cleaning out the Augean stables at Versailles-on-the-Potomac) but knows the system (winning 5 of 9 cases before SCOTUS), and that he has survived with his principles intact living in the belly of the beast. The link is:
