Let me begin by pointing out that I PREDICTED a Donald Trump would happen FOUR DAMN YEARS AGO. My words on June 18, 2012:
Obama’s strategy is to set aside and flatly ignore the law for his own political benefit. Every American who is not deeply troubled by that – troubled enough to not vote for this fascist – is UN-American.
What Obama has done is provide an example of out-and-out lawlessness on the part of the president of the United States. And when we get a hard-core right wing president the way Obama has been a hard-core left wing president, Obama and the Democrat Party and all of those who voted for Obama and the Democrat Party will be entirely to blame for that president and his extremist actions. You mark my words. Because what goes around comes around, and if a Democrat can set aside the law the way Obama has now repeatedly done, well, guess who’s going to be stomping on your necks under your own president’s prior justification??? Conservatives are rising up in a spirit of righteous outrage. You have repeatedly slapped us in the face through your messiah Obama, and the time is coming when we’re going to punch you hard in the nose and then keep on punching. And when that day comes, liberals, look to yourselves for blame.
My point is that the anger – THE RAGE – that characterizes this country right now oozed right out of the cockroach soul of an incredibly wicked man named Barack Hussein Obama. And that rage isn’t just on the right; virtually half of Democrats flatly reject the status-quo Democrat Hillary Clinton and want an openly avowed SOCIALIST to be the next president.
The one thing that about three-quarters of Americans agree upon is that Barack Obama has utterly and absolutely destroyed any trust or confidence whatsoever in the United States government. And Donald Trump has an awful lot of pure, unadulterated RAGE to tap into.
Liberals are now gleeful at the thought of this horrible, blustering, bigoted buffoon tycoon running as the GOP candidate even as the GOP seems to be fracturing at every possible fissure point over Trump.
They might end up right. But their demonic, gleeful laughter may turn into the mother of all hysterical crying jags, too.
I found this Washington Post article – keep in mind that WaPo runs reliably leftist – rather intriguing:
Democrats, don’t celebrate Trump’s nomination. Fear it.

I know the polls say Donald Trump cannot win. But what if we are looking at the wrong poll question?
What if Trump’s overwhelming negatives don’t matter? Or, to put it another way, what if the country’s negatives matter more?
Right now, about 6 in 10 Americans have an unfavorable view of Trump, and only 36 percent view him positively.
But the country is faring even worse. In the most recent average of polls calculated by RealClearPolitics, 26.9 percent of Americans think the nation is headed in the right direction and 64.9 percent think we are heading down the wrong track.
So what if even voters who respect Hillary Clinton’s competence reject her as the embodiment of business as usual? And what if even voters who do not like Trump’s bigotry or bluster care more that he will, in their view, shake things up?
Sure, these voters might tell themselves, he may be crude, or inconsistent, or ill-informed. He may insult women and Hispanics and other groups. But it’s part of a shtick. He probably doesn’t mean half of it. He’s just an entertainer. The desire to send a message of disgust or disapproval, in other words, could lead voters to overlook, discount, wish away or excuse many Trump sins.
Meanwhile, Clinton cannot shake free of the status quo. You may remember how this bedeviled Al Gore when he asked voters to give the Democratic Party a third straight presidential term in 2000. The vice president managed to achieve the worst of both worlds, alienating Bill Clinton and his most ardent supporters without establishing himself as an entirely new brand.
Unlike Gore, Hillary Clinton is not an incumbent. But she is no less associated with the establishment, having served as first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state over the past quarter-century. Even if she were inclined to do so, she could not afford to distance herself from President Obama, whose backers she will need to turn out in large numbers.
I know there is an element of irrationality in these fears. I understand that not every dissatisfied American will vote for Trump.
About two-thirds of the country may think we are on the wrong track, after all, but Obama’s approval rating is 51 percent and rising.
Meanwhile, only 4.7 percent of eligible voters have actually cast a ballot for Trump in the party nomination process so far, as an analysis by FairVote shows. Many of the remaining 95.3 percent, no matter how unhappy most are with the performance of their government, will take their responsibility seriously enough that they will not vote for someone who casually threatens the faith and credit of the United States, breezily posits the merits of nuclear proliferation and cheerfully espouses torture as an instrument of U.S. policy.
Republicans are divided, the economy is improving, the demographics are increasingly in Democrats’ favor. The likeliest result of a Trump nomination is a Republican washout up and down the ballot.
I do get all that.
Still, when I hear smart people explaining why Trump cannot win, all I can think is: Aren’t you the ones who told us that he couldn’t top 30 percent, and then 40 percent, and then 50 percent in the Republican primaries? Weren’t you confident that he was finished after he called Mexicans rapists, and insulted prisoners of war, and dished out a menstruation insult?
Did you predict his nomination? If not, we don’t want to hear your certainty about his November defeat.
Nor is it reassuring to read how happy the Clinton camp must be to be facing such a weak opponent. They need to be running scared — smart, but scared — now and for the next six months.
I do have faith in the American voter, I really do. But when two-thirds of the country is unhappy, a rational outcome can’t be taken for granted.
Understand that this editorialist in the course of this article is trying to do what the Hillary Clinton campaign is going to try to do: fearmonger and demonize Donald Trump and say you don’t want an unstable, dangerous guy like this in the White House.
But what if, after the abject ruin of Obama, the American people not only want but DEMAND somebody who will be different???
And at this point, Hillary Clinton has literally tried to insinuate her molecules into the molecules of Obama and is running as the third Obama term. Versus Donald Trump who says to hell with Bush and wears the Bush-era GOP establishment’s refusal to rally to him as a badge of honor.
It’s a war of Hillary Clinton’s “I’ll be even more like Obama than Obama was!” versus Donald Trump’s “I won’t be anything like those turds Obama OR Bush!”
Now, take me as a conservative. I didn’t want Trump from the getgo. And I’ve been watching the coverage of the campaign twist and turn and morph and totally contradict itself. NOBODY thought Donald Trump was going to succeed to this point. I mean, even just a couple of weeks ago, liberal journalists were gleefully salivating over the prospect of a brokered convention and the outrage they could manufacture – with Donald Trump’s assistance, of course – over any Republican establishment shenanigans that they might use to try to obstruct and deny Trump from clinching the nomination. And that was the narrative for weeks and weeks until all of a sudden they were all proven wrong and Ted Cruz and then immediately John Kasich suddenly dropped out.
Mind you, Bernie Sanders hasn’t dropped out. But then again, the liberal fracturing of the Democratic Party isn’t nearly as interesting for “journalists” to cover as the hype over the divides on the other side. And so Democrat propagandists – otherwise known as “reporters” – continue to hype the Republican division. Because to be a liberal is to be a hypocrite who can’t seen the log in their own eyes as they examine the speck in their opponent’s eyes.
Donald Trump has a number of advantages in this postmodern world that Democrats and liberals created that has long-since disregarded truth. He can run to the right of Hillary Clinton when it suits him and he can run to the left of Hillary Clinton when it suits him. For instance on the latter, Hillary Clinton is a horrible, failed, warmongering fool: just look at her Iraq War vote that she was all in favor of. And Donald Trump says he was against that evil war. And any Democrat who doesn’t want another Iraq War should therefore vote for Trump. Or here’s another one: the trade agreements that Bernie Sanders has been tearing apart left and right that Hillary loves so much: Trump and Sanders are on the same page there. Feel that “Bern,” Hillary.
And we’re already starting to see that Donald Trump will punch Hillary Clinton right in the mouth and keep punching her. He won’t be like the typical Republican nominee who’s afraid to go after a Clinton because she’s a woman or an Obama because he’s black. And he’s got about a trillion acres of the field of Clinton corruption history to burn to the ground.
Clinton’s emails have yet to surface in this race. Hillary Clinton is either a corrupt criminal traitor or she is the most incompetent bungling bureaucrat to ever serve in a public office. There is no other alternative between those two. So all Hillary Clinton has to go with her incredibly low opinion polls is her record of “competence.” Which aint very competent. And meanwhile Clinton is promising the same failed strategy that drove this country right into the ground whereas Trump says whatever the hell Obama did I’ll do just the opposite.
This is going to be the angriest and most bitter election in the history of the American republic. Because Barack Obama was the worst and most failed and most ideological and the most polarizing president in the history of the American republic.
I know things are going to get really ugly, really nasty, and really mean. In my own case, I truly hesitated to support Donald Trump: it took the vicious, fascist, Stalinist thugs a.k.a. the Democrat Party who resorted to violence and screaming to shut down and shout down the 1st Amendment to convince me that THE most un-American people on earth are all Democrats. Anybody who values freedom, freedom of speech, freedom to peaceably assemble and freedom to listen to political speech without Nazi Stormtrooper thugs trying to stop you cannot vote Democrat. If Donald Trump hates Muslims and illegal immigrant Mexicans, Democrats hate the Constitution and our founding fathers even more.
I have no idea whose going to win.
But I do know that if Donald Trump wins this election, Democrats, that you got just the hell that you voted for when you voted for Obama and then voted to re-elect that slandering demagogue again.
