Donald Trump wants to make America Great Again

The Democrats want to make it into Europe

Nearly 60 years ago, as a young lad from Hackney, an uncle asked me “So, what do you want to be when you grow older”. I gave an answer that is still a mystery as to where it came from. “An American” I answered. I never managed to become an American citizen and yet there is something inside me that IS American. I can well-up at a patriotic speech by Trump or leak a tear on his inauguration day. I can’t explain it. I think it’s because I see in Americans  a unique patriotism and pride in their country.  It makes me feel for them.

So, I did the next best thing and that was to immerse myself in American politics and visit as many times as I can. Recently, I went for the Trump  inauguration, then September that year and now  this May.

I realise that I had a very early brush with USA politics when I listened on a transistor radio under the covers  to the Cuban missile crisis play out. Next, in the 1970’s I was fortunate enough to work for an American company and visited New Jersey and New York. I watched live  Richard Nixon’s announcement of his resignation. I remember the election of President “Ray-Gun” with his “Star Wars” defence system and a general consensus that we needed to build nuclear bunkers.

I watched the “Hanging Chads” argument that elected Bush (with the help of his brother and lawyers), had a soft spot for GWB but got really into things when Obama made his first bid for 2008. I discovered Sean Hannity in 2007 and bought myself an internet radio so I could listen to conservative talk radio.

What interested me was the freedom of speech in USA media and yet how it was also silent. From Hannity I learnt that Obama was friends with the Weather Underground terrorists, had his academic  record sealed, wad a dubious birth certificate, was brought up as a Muslim, could recite much of the Koran, took drugs at college and attended the church of Rev Wright who had expressed anti-Semitism and anti-USA rhetoric for many years. How could Americans elect someone with that pedigree?

But, I didn’t see any of these points raised by MSM, either in the USA or UK. Consequently, whenever I tell friends about what’s happening in the USA they don’t believe me. To my sister, Jon Snow is the fountain of all knowledge.

I became “Hannitised” a state you achieved by being convinced Obama was a Manchurian Candidate. I happened to visit the USA in 2007 and visited a book store where a beaming Hannity invited me to buy his book “Deliver Us From Evil” which had a theme about the evils of Islam. However, my departure from Orlando airport was spoilt by the large as life cut-out of Obama Messiah inviting  me to buy “Dreams From My Father”.

I remember the primaries where Hillary was Obama-bashing. It was her campaign that raised the issue of his birth certificate and I remember her saying he was unqualified to be POTUS. That the WH was no place to do on-the-job training.

McCain vs Obama. No contest. Obama’s campaign, to me, was a classic smoke and mirrors. There weren’t strong facts about policies but the theme “Hope and Change”. Who can remember any McCain campaign slogan? In communication terms “Hope and Change” are called nominalisations. It means that they mean what you want them to mean. Everyone wants “Hope” and after GWB they wanted “Change”. Obama became a slick marketing vehicle. Good looks, family, black, good speaker (even though we later learnt he could sell lies). We had rallies on elaborate stages. He went on tours to the ME and Europe and acted like a rock-star.

He was elected and Chris Matthews was in tears. It sent a tingle down his leg. America was actually able to elect a Black POTUS and yet we still didn’t know a lot about him. He had no real-world experience having been a “Community Organiser” and flirted with Saul Alinskyite politics.

But then it comes down to “A” or “B” and McCain was “B”. I remember an economic summit after the election when Obama slapped-down McCain with “I won the Presidency John”, when McCain made his suggestions.

The Obama presidency will turn out to be one of the worst in American history. Full of lies:- “If you like your doctor – you can keep your doctor”, “It was a video that inspired Benghazi”,  “Every family will save $2,000 on Obama Care”.

Obama colluded with Russia. On an open mike he said to Lavrov “Tell Vladimir that I will have more flexibility after the election”. Maybe Vladimir thought “What can I do to get Obama elected”.

He didn’t have to worry because Mitt Romney was his opponent in 2012. It is thought that Mitt could have turned his chance if he had challenged Obama on Benghazi during the debates. He fluffed his lines and the overwhelming Democrat MSM made sure Obama was re-elected.

What is it about Obama and radical Islam? He gave a speech at Cairo university apologising for the role of the USA in ME politics. He supported the Muslim Brotherhood grab of power in Egypt. He called ISIS a “JV team” meaning that they were junior minor league players. Pretended that Benghazi wasn’t an attack on the USA by Islamic Terrorism, instead it was people reacting to a video hardly any of them could have seen.  He sent a team to Israel to try and make sure Netanyahu wasn’t elected (a foreign power interfering with an election). He refused to support the people uprising against Iranian Radical government, warned Iran that Israel was going to attack their nuclear programme and then gave Iran billions of dollars to, supposedly, delay their nuclearisation.

Remember his Freudian slip “My Muslim faith” in an interview with George Stephanopoulos?

Mark Levin, who I follow every  weekday (WMAL 11pm UK time) has called Obama “an anti-Semite” several times.

“Trump’s just in it for the publicity. After the first debate he will drop out”. Raw Trump in the early debates and campaign rallies was like watching a candidate on speed and Tourettes. But, wasn’t America tired of “Politics as Usual”? He insulted his way through Republican debates but he was gaining popularity.

The public was “Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore” and here was someone who as POTUS didn’t have to put up with crap.

He won the nomination and George Clooney, at a press conference, laughed and said “Donald Trump is never going to be President”.

So, he’s up against Hillary who had fixed her nomination by making sure the DNC put Bernie Sanders down. A DNC leaked memo suggests that a Jewish Bernie Sanders won’t appeal to the Christian evangelicals. I don’t think Sanders had a path but Clinton made sure, just in case.

As a candidate Clinton was most definitely low-key. I remember her campaign kicked off with her bus visiting various American towns. Reporters complained they were always roped off and couldn’t question her. The obligatory shots of her in diners.

What was her campaign slogan:-

“I’m with her”

Trump’s:-

“Make America Great Again”.

What is interesting is that Clinton’s slogan is all  “Me, Me”. Trump’s is “You, You”.

Clinton was shrill and shouty, like that harridan wife you wish you could divorce. Her Town-Hall meetings were managed with at least one having planted questions.

Trump was all patriotism and off-the-cuff insults.

Trump played to packed halls with thousands locked out. Hillary had her halls sectioned off to make it look like they were full.

Hillary coughed, spluttered, fell over and looked to have had a petit mal attack.

Trump looked fit, glowing, snarling and  full of energy which was boosted by the patriotic music and enthusiastic crowds.

Then the debates. Donna Brazil gave Hillary the questions. Trump stalked Hillary around the stage. Given that 90% of the media is in the can for the Democrats, and being told that Hillary won the debates you have to assume that Trump did very well in the debates.

Election night:- “Hillary 97% certain to win”, “Trump has no path to 270”.

3am UK time:- “Florida goes to Trump”.

CNN in a panic:- “She can still do it”.

As the states fall one-by-one into Trump’s camp a forlorn, devastated Rachel Maddow announces:-

“You haven’t just woken up to a nightmare. This is your life now”.

Hillary can’t face her supporters to thank them. Books post election say that Hillary is in a weepy rage, throwing things, shouting, screaming at the campaign team.

I read the book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. on the day it was published so I could wallow in her defeat by every mis-step. Authors are Democrat-leaning so little compliment is paid to Trump in his victory. He didn’t win, she lost.

What you will discover is that the campaign relied on computer models. That was the problem. There was tension between the technocrat millennial and the old-guard, seasoned campaigners in the states, and Bill. Computer models were telling them where Clinton needed to campaign but the experienced campaign managers in some states were telling them different based on their ground knowledge. And Bill was the same. He could sense the public moods versus the computer models.

And now we know where the Russian Collusion plot was hatched. From that book.:-

“Within 24 hours of her concession speech, [campaign chair John Podesta and manager Robby Mook] assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.”

The plan, according to the book, was to push journalists to cover how “Russian hacking was the major unreported story of the campaign,” and it succeeded to a fare-thee-well. After the election, coverage of the Russian “collusion” story was relentless, and it helped pressure investigations and hearings on Capitol Hill and even the naming of a special counsel, which in turn has triggered virtually nonstop coverage”.

How Team Hillary played the press for fools on Russia

They funded the dodgy dossier and through their media they spread their lies.

I listen to Chris Plante (WMAL 2pm UK time) and he has a great phrase for most journalists. He calls them out as “Typing on behalf of the Democrat Party”.

Oh what a nasty lot they are, the Democrats. After the election Elizabeth Warren raised money to demand recounts in some states and they also tried to get the local party representatives to rescind their nominations for Trump.

I booked an Orlando villa for January 2017 so I could watch his inauguration live on a 50 inch screen, beer, pizza, chips and dips. What you probably didn’t get on UK coverage were the parades followed by the Trump motorcade. Given the animosity and hostility against Trump I was amazed that he, Melania and Bannon, along with the rest of the family stopped several times to meet the bystanders.

The Inauguration podium is very stage-managed and choreographed. Servicemen escorting guests to their seats. The Obamas and Clintons front row to the right as we face the podium, Trump and family to the left protected by bullet-proof glass.

Trump makes a speech that the Clinton MSM calls “dark”.

Following the inauguration they go on to a concert, again protected by a glass screen that Trump sometimes leaves to thanks some of the artists. The show-stopper is “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood. Hannity would play it often and it became a theme at Trump rallies. One the great all-time songs. Even I can move a tear. It’s also referred-to as “Proud to be an American” because of its chorus.

 

“Proud To Be An American”

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,

From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,
And it’s time we stand and say:

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land! God bless the U.S.A.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up… next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

Lee Greenwood

In the evening are the balls. About eight of them across the Capital. Trump and Melania did four of them. I remember Melania dancing with a young serviceman. She is a stunner!

Trump’s speeches are getting less wooden. He has learnt to use the teleprompter as a memory jog and not to forget important points. He is still a great ad-libber. The more he is a success the more Trump Derangement there is.

I think it was Hannity who said:-

“Trump could invent a cure for cancer with a test tube and the contents of a spice rack and he would still be hated”

Recommended Media

I follow USA politics through a conservative perspective. I recommend you all to listen to the following:-

Chris Plante, WMAL, 2-5pm UK time

Rush Limbaugh – WMAL 5-8pm

Larry O’Connor – WMAL 8-11pm

Mark Levin – WMAL 11pm-1am

Sean Hannity – Freedom 95 – WFDM 8-11pm

Note that they will also be on various other radio stations that they are franchised to and at different times due to time zone differences and when they decide to broadcast their shows.

Special mention must be made for Mark Levin. He is referred -to as The Great One. A constitutional lawyer who served in the Reagan administration under Ed Mease. His forensic taking apart of the media leaks, Comey and Meuller is outstanding. He is the one who has told the media that Trump cannot be indicted or subpoena because of two DOJ rulings, based on the constitution, that state that a sitting President cannot be prevented from carrying-out his duty as POTUS by the need to defend himself against charges. They can ONLY impeach him.
