So…If I’m Not a Trump Supporter Then I’m a “Phony Conservative?”

Well peoples…it appears that I have been thrown into the proverbial phony conservatives barrel by yet another author that stands for Trump and happens to be on my blog list!

You can go to that link and read all the vitriol and name-calling that is being spewed against people like me and others who have many suspicions against Trump’s social, political, and religious ideology.  Why aren’t we allowed to share our thoughts because we do not see him as being the best candidate for the GOP nomination?

Trump’s rudeness and crudeness is apparently being overlooked by many who support him.

But what about his arrogant pressuring of individuals to take their land away from them for one of his “deals” (see link below)  and the “little people” that he has hurt as a result?

The “phony conservative” blog post also contains some information that reveals there may be some hope for the author at that link!  At one point, he writes:

Excerpt:

The phonies wouldn’t stand up to Obama and they have the audacity to claim that Trump isn’t conservative enough? There is a lot about Trump that I completely disagree with. But I’m still of the mind-set that if we don’t stop the illegals from flooding the United States and stop the Muslims from coming in, we won’t be worrying about baking cakes for same sex married couples, or late-term abortions, or most of the other stuff so important to conservatives. We’ll be worrying about some terrorist who Obama let in blowing himself up in the mall while we’re shopping. We’ll be afraid to let our wives and kids go to the park … afraid they’ll get raped and murdered by some illegal alien.

So… there IS a “lot about Trump” that the blog author disagrees with!

Hmmm….

So why does that that make me a “phony” conservative and him a true one?  Where does wisdom fit into the narrative?

Ugh… I hate all the arguing and bashing and vitriol going on in this Republican primary campaign season!  I hope that the friends I have that think that Trump is “da bomb” do not get together with friends who think he is a leftist, pride filled, boastful billionaire (with a mix of being a carnival barker and sleazy salesman who bashes and crushes the “little people” during his deals and praises them on the stump) so I don’t have to play referee!

I did find a website that discusses a topic that doesn’t even seem to be on the radar with conservatives for Trump.

Conservative Review: Trump’s Crusade Against Farmers and the Working Class

Excerpt:

Donald Trump’s mindset is that we all live in a collective. Those with the resources, meaning people who have money and/or clout like him along with the arm of the federal government, are better equipped to allocate those resources than anyone else. In this way, he is not much different than Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

While the lunatic Left prefer to demonize the rich in order to turn public sentiment against our wealthiest citizens and harass them with taxation, it is striking that Donald Trump has demonized those with much less property than him, in order to turn public sentiment against ordinary landowners.

In the case of Vera Coking, the woman who refused to sell her home for the expansion of Trump’s casino business, and who had to fight off Trump’s lifetime business partner, big government, in order to stay in her home, Trump proved he has little interest in protecting the property rights of individual Americans. Mrs. Coking had to declare, as if it is some novel idea, that she has a right to own her home and did not have to surrender it to some egotistical bully billionaire because he’s got more money and clout than she. The woman had to fight her local representatives — who clearly picked the will of a billionaire over her, a comparatively poor person — and were actively using the force of government to please the billionaire.

Trump has explained that he believes it is acceptable for business to use government to improve the economy, and if that means taking land from private landowners so he can make the almighty dollar, so be it.

Ironically, Trump has been pro-choice for most of his life, except when it comes to land ownership among the little people.

So it was Trump who decided to build a golf course in Scotland, shoving his thumb in the eye of a local landowner by the name of Michael Forbes.

See more at: Conservative Review

Be sure to go to the link and read the entire article. I can’t choose between these two examples (Mrs. Coking or Mr. Forbes) to state which one made me angrier!

If people want to label me as “a phony conservative,” then so be it!  After reading this article and a few more of the postings at Conservative Review, then I’d rather be disingenuously called that rather than labeled as a sellout.

Hat tips to all links.

    The situation we face is just a part of man’s corrupt nature. Perhaps a measly 250 years out of all History has there been “peace”.

    The socialists have been at work since before I was born; Norman Matoon Thomas was a Presbyterian minister, but a socialist. Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Thomas

    Am I to accuse the sincerity of his Christianity because of that stance? Personally, I don’t “like” Trump. But we’re fighting many economic problems his business sense can solve.

    The trade issue – our government trade “agreements” are nothing less than economic warfare, and that must be countered. One point you make (Vera Coking) is about Eminent Domain. What about the Regime’s Agenda 21? Or the “Patriot” Act? the egregious NDAA? (“Honest Abe” also abrogated the 4th amendment during the Civil War)
    The Executive branch should never have been allowed such power by Congress. Corrupt power.

    I’m not here to berate you. If it takes a big ugly dog to get rid of a thief, you use the dog. Trump is far from Ideal.

    Read Vattel’s Laws of Nations; Cruz is ineligible under the requirement for a natural born citizen. Our corrupt leaders allowed Obama to become president, and under Vattel, he is just as ineligible. So is Rubio.
    We are all culpable sir. This is why I prefaced my comment with John Adams quote.
    Trump is for America first. So am I.

      Hello Partnering With Eagles,

      Great screen name! Thanks for taking the time to come over to my blog and comment.

      First, I’m a lady, not a “sir.” Perhaps you didn’t notice the photo to the right of this blog?

      Second, I “get” why you believe that Trump is the right person for the job. I sincerely hope and pray that if he does get elected to the presidency, that you will turn out to be correct in your assumptions regarding him. He is already on my prayer list since it seems inevitable at this juncture.

      I hope he gets in there and reveals all of the past corruption that has been going on in Washington D.C. and then sets things on the right path in order to save our beloved nation from the terrible direction that it has been going in over the past 7+ years.

      But I have my doubts. Judging his previous actions and based on his past dealings with liberals (and donations to them, including crooked Hillary) in the democrat party, he doesn’t appear to be trustworthy. That concerns me greatly.

      Eminent domain is not something that I agree with. I know that developers and big businesses like it. But when someone attempts to bully, threaten, push, and ultimately force someone or a family out of their home (or, in the case of the Scotsman force a family out who has owned a farm for generations); I see such wealthy people like Trump who do such things as not caring a whit about We The People, and certainly not caring about one bit about “the little guy.”

      About Cruz’s eligibility. Let’s start with 0bama. Why wasn’t 0bama vetted in the first place? Why was he allowed to get elected and re-elected when the circumstances surrounding his “natural born citizen” status were questionable?

      About Cruz. Why aren’t the “powers that be” using the eligibility question against Cruz? John Boehner just called him “Lucifer” and a “son of a bit*h.” Why doesn’t Boehner also spew his guts regarding Cruz’s ineligibility? Is the reason why he and all the other spineless hypocrites in Congress don’t do this is because they want to continue to protect 0bama? Lots of unanswered question on this issue that I won’t bore you with at this time.

      I said my peace about Trump in my post. And I will say this again:

      If people want to label me as “a phony conservative,” then so be it! After reading this article and a few more of the postings at Conservative Review, then I’d rather be disingenuously called that rather than labeled as a sellout.

      Thank you for visiting. Good day, sir.

        I noted your reply to KingJester; liking both his commentary, and your (I must say) eloquent response, I can only reiterate John Adams quote – “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
        America has become an amoral police state, and we are all culpable.
        P.S. I’m no good at making webshots so you could see what I see; t]The page I see has no picture of you, only the Talk Wisdom blue header, and the blog statement with the ends clipped off.

      Ah yes…that explains it! You probably clicked on the direct link to the post and that photo and sidebar doesn’t appear. It is only visible on the front page. Totally understandable why you didn’t know that I am a lady.

      John Adam’s quote is a good one, and the further that America is led away from being “a moral and religious people,” the further we are drifting away from not only the Constitution, but the Declaration of Independence and the true, original and purposeful founding (under God) of our nation!

    I should pass along some info – I had used Startpage.com as well; recently, another blogger mentioned an alternative; the name is weirdly funny, but since Startpage is “powered by Google”, I took the advice, and switched over to it as my default search engine.

    Hello Christine. I’m not sure if you know this but the article is mine and Partnering re-posted it. Let me make it clear that I wasn’t referring all non-Trump supporters as “phony conservatives.” I apologize if that is your impression. I had hoped that in pointing out the hypocrisy of folks such as Mark Levin that the point was made. There is way too much stuff he’s done to convince me of what I wrote about him in the piece is accurate.
    Ted Cruz is my first choice. I voted for him in the Texas primary. But I’m facing the fact that he’s losing and losing bad. And it’s no one’s fault but his own. Let me see if I can articulate my thoughts. We conservatives seem to have this “all or none” mindset. We have to have as a candidate a Christian conservative who’s staunchly conservative on each and every issue, and if we can’t get it well …. “I’m not voting for that guy! He’s not a true conservative!” “He’s not really pro-life!” “He’s flip-flopped on such and such!”
    It would be great if we could get one elected. But it ain’t gonna happen. I think we conservatives could learn a valuable lesson from the left. And that is to get what we want incrementally, a little at a time. Liberals have been doing it for decades until they finally got the crown jewel of everything anti-America … Barack Obama squatting in the White House.
    I’m as aggravated as everyone else in having our votes hijacked by having to always vote for the lesser of two evils.
    Of course there are a lot of important issues that are very important to us conservatives.
    However, and these views are mine, the illegal immigration problem and the importing of Muslims from Islamic nations hostile to America are an imminent threat to America and her citizens. I think that if we don’t get a grip on those things, like I said in my article, we won’t be worrying about the removal of Nativity scenes from the local courthouses and most of the other issues conservatives care about. To me all other issues have to take a back seat until the immigration and Muslim problems are fixed. What happened in San Bernardino was child’s play compared to what the Islamists have planned for us. If they’re allowed to succeed all the other issues will be lost anyway.
    Back to Trump. If it wasn’t for him, the immigration and Muslim invasion issues wouldn’t even have been talked about during the campaigns. Donald Trump isn’t a conservative. He’s not running as one and to my knowledge he has never claimed to be one. It aggravates me when I hear people on the radio say they’ll never vote for Trump because he’s not a “true conservative.” Erick Erickson says that and then says that if Hillary wins then it’s the fault of Trump supporters. How ridiculous! I digress.
    Trump is far to the right on the immigration and Muslim issues of all the candidates.
    Yeah Trump is rude, arrogant, and a narcissist. He can be all those things … perhaps he’ll use those characteristics in defense of America. Opposite the way Obama used the same traits to destroy her.
    Okay, I get it that we don’t know for sure what Trump will do as president. In my mind I’d rather roll the dice with Trump than see Hillary’s fat a$$ squatting in the White House. We know what she will do. It would be a third term for Obama … on steroids.
    Yes, I’d rather see Cruz win the nomination. But if Trump wins it, I’m voting for him.
    I think we’d be better served with “NEVER HILLARY” … rather than never Trump.
    We’ve been friends for what … 9 years? And you know what I stand for. I can’t lose sight of the important conservatives issues. I just know they will all be gone if we allow America to be turned into a third-world crap fest.
    I hope you and your lovely family are doing okay Christine.

    Your friend in Texas;

      Hi Steve!
      It’s been a while since we have had a chat on our blogs. Thanks for letting me know your position regarding Trump. You make several valid points. I hope and pray that he will follow through on those two very important issues if he becomes president. You have read my post and see where I stand.

      My family and I are doing great! Many happy occasions over the past few months!

      Hope all is well with you & family!

      Your friend,
      Christine
