Trump and Carson and Foot in Mouth Disease

Donald Trump is a smart man. Ben Carson is a smart man also. Listening to the travesty that is radio news, and watching the wreck that is television news, I am becoming a bit concerned over several statements and patterns developing between these two men. Firstly, does Donald Trump have any filter between brain and mouth? I have written good things about Trump, and I do think he would be a great improvement over other candidates…….but holy cow, please take a moment to actually think about some of the things that come out of your mouth when dealing with a media dead-set on destroying you. I know he’s made his name saying what he thinks, but don’t make it so hard to defend you, please. The Donald actually has great plans for many of the issues we face, I just wish he would spend a tad more time talking about them. With that said, I do not feel this will be the “turning point” in the Trump campaign that both parties and all of the media have been incorrectly predicting, and desperately hoping for.

Ben Carson has impressed me as an even keeled, intelligent man who certainly is  qualified as an outsider candidate ready to shake up the establishment system. The problem is he seems to be guilty of forgetting an important rule when putting yourself out there: stay consistent. If you have been lying about something for a long time then keep lying about it…….if you’re telling the truth about something for a long time, then keep telling the truth. I say this with no judgment towards anything he has said, frankly I think most of these wannabe “gotcha” stories are bullsqueeze. In other words, stick to your story for Pete’s sake, because both parties and all of the media desperately want an excuse to destroy you.

Now to my point. I truly wish and hope that I am not seeing the Herman Cain Effect. What I mean by that is: though I think Herman is great and would have made a great President, I think he was in it to sell books and was overwhelmed and surprised by his rise to the top of the pack. Upon seeing a way out, ie: the supposed scandal over some woman or another, he bailed. No proof ever materialized, and he went on to be a bestselling author and talk radio host (news nugget!). My worry is that knowing that Trump and Carson are really smart, and know the stakes at play, they might be feeling the same pressure that Cain did. Between the Establishment weight and the gravity of how difficult it will be to claw us back from the brink that Obama has gleefully brought us, maybe they are both thinking, ” I need a way out …..”. Hopefully not.

The reason I really hope that I am getting the wrong idea is that Hillary or Bernie would be absolutely disastrous. We are on the verge of another world war, this time with nukes in play. We are deep in horrible, crushing debt. We are overrun with foreign invaders that overwhelmingly use social services, among many other concerns. Either democrat candidate would be an Obama third term…….and the first two have led us to divided, destructive disaster. The establishment republicans would be do a continuation of their strategy for the past 10 years, namely doing and saying nothing while passing legislation to expand their own power and cowering in fear of being called bigots, racists, and chauvinist.

So……..Mr. Trump, know your enemies, and remember that Carson need not be one. Mr. Carson, stop talking about things that don’t matter, like who you almost stabbed 40 years ago. I frankly would love a Trump/Carson ticket…….it would unite the two sides of opposition to what has been taking place under the rule of the Elite.

Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, the Republican Presidential Debate, and Other Words That Will Make You Read This

Well there it was ladies and germs, the three hour slog that was the CNN presidential debate.  I was right, as usual, that it was going to be the limp-wristed, clammy handed attempt by the GOP Establishment and The Clown Show media to discredit and dishonor anyone running who is not their pay-for-play escort. Speaking of paying to play, it looks like the R.N.C. headed by Reince Priebus ( whose name sounds like an alternate title for Deputy Furher), made a sweet deal with CNN where the network could rake in the dough and simultaneously keep tight-fisted control over the content we are allowed to hear and rebroadcast. What a deal! The 5th Column/modern-day Pravda can become ever richer off of manipulating all of us poor saps like Jeff Dunham manipulates Jose the Jalapeno. And no, Jorge Ramos, I’m not talking about Illegals……but if you could hear me say your name I would indeed add the Latino Pronunciacion with mucho sarcasmo.

I’ll be brief, as I’m sure everyone would like to get back to reading about how just absolutely awesome Carly Fiorina was at the debate last night. How she just stuck it to that mean old Donald Trump……who made fun of her apppeawance (implied waaaahhhhhh). I love it when people tell me how much they are above gender politics, as a woman, then make everything you say for a week relate to how you’re a woman. I’m sure I’ve never heard someone make fun of The Donald’s hairdon’t, or Chris Chrispie-Kreme’s waistline, or Rand ” give him a box to stand on” Paul’s height. Besides, the growing caliphate invading Europe has such a deep and healthy respect for “the ladies” and how upset they get about being mildly insulted.  I’m not saying she crashed and burned or anything…..but it shows the Establishment and their Lobbyist Masters’ desperation to look at Fox News and Redstate and see the hundred or so articles screaming at us rubes that, Carly won! Carly won!  We get it…..you’ve found your new Scott Walker….uhh, I mean John Kasich…..uhh wait….we’re almost out of Jeb Bush replacements, damn it!

I actually think that much of the reason that Fiorina is rising is due to the new narrative that she is somehow a political outsider, when in fact she was a big time adviser for John McCain and his McShameful attempt at being president in 2008, in addition to running a smear-filled campaign for senate in 2010 and losing to Barbara Boxer. Unfortunately her political record is filled with just as much success as her business one ( HP stock went up almost seven percent when she was canned ). That’s not what Charlie Sheen would have once called WINNING!

My main point is this…… I’m not saying we shouldn’t have debates. But I AM SAYING that there doesn’t need to be a clown car’s worth of candidates vying for time and attention. We are at a point where guys (sorry Carly, didn’t mean to offend) like Christie, Jindal, Graham, Paul, and…….. oh screw it – I can’t even remember the rest of the thousand people the GOP has running to throw jabs at Trump – guys like them need to go home. Even Rick Perry decided to turn it in when he realized that once again he would actually have to talk without a piece of paper or a teleprompter in front of his face, full of lines written by other people. I say take a poll, put the top 6 on a stage, pull names out of a phone book from “flyover country” to be moderators, and broadcast without cost and commercial interruption to We The People……since we are the ones who have to live with the consequences. I know Rupert Murdoch wants to give El Jebe’ nine swings of the bat to at least make contact with the ball, but another Bush just ain’t gonna happen…..no matter how many times he rubs the Pope and makes a wish.

The questions need to be serious….like, what’s your plan for say…. the Iran debacle, Illegal Immigration, trillions and trillions of debt, a crumbling infrastructure, impending conflict with China and Russia, racial riots and volatility, bottom ranking schools, corporate cronyism, lobbyist control of government, welfare, and maybe a couple of other things that are threatening to sink us like an the iceberg the size of Australia. But hey, what do I know….I’m only supposed to be watching the commercials and buying stuff.
