The Trump Wars

Lately, this blog has turned into a forum that might be renamed, “how to lose friends and not influence people.”

The battles going on between the pro-Trump and anti-Trump groups are often vicious.

At this blog, I have tried to keep blogging friends that may disagree with my personal position regarding Trump, but it appears that some will not accept such a position, so they choose to just tell me that they are “outta here.”

Well…that’s OK I guess.

It saddens me, but that’s life.

During election season, blogging friends may come and go so I just have to accept that fact.

Since this blog is a “little fish in a big pond,” I don’t seem to suffer the same amount of consequence as those bloggers who have a huge audience and large following.

Ran across the following post this morning, and the author shared her heart-felt opinions about Trump and why she could no longer stay with two sites that she was once involved with.  I haven’t even visited such sites, but I do understand the sentiment that she shares regarding those who viciously attacked her for her beliefs regarding Trump,  as well as her disdain for the pro-Trumpeteers who choose to turn into vicious animals and denigrate a famous conservative like Trevor Loudon.

Well, I’ll offer her post in order to let readers see how the Trump wars affect those who do not wish to support him for president.

*******

Many of my readers have noticed that suddenly I am no longer with the USA Transnational Report and that I have departed the Watcher’s Council. I felt I should let you know what is going on and to assure you that I am going nowhere and am in the fight for the long haul.

I’ve spent much of the last couple of weeks mulling over events related to my stance on Donald Trump.

I am appalled at the rancor and abusive tenor of some of the remarks that have come my way, as well as what amounts to slander of the character of a good and decent man, a fighter who has, quite literally, given up everything to save the country he has adopted as his new home – Trevor Loudon. I find this unconscionable.

I really cannot stand idly by as capricious accusations impugn the foremost researcher and subject matter expert on topics relating to communist and socialist subversion and corruption of our system of government, while a vile, unprincipled, arrogant, ego-maniacal narcissist is held up as the nation’s “last best hope” after a campaign devoid of any ethical foundation, fraught with pandering and ironic contradictory promises, espousing positions exactly opposite those he has spent decades and hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting, offering not so much as a pivot point or epiphany to account for his positional gymnastics.

In the beginning, I really wanted to like Trump. I was willing to accept a Trump nomination if it afforded us an opportunity to finally rid ourselves of the brazen, unindicted felon running on a platform largely constructed of “it’s my turn” and promises to eliminate at least two amendments from the Bill of Rights. As much as I wanted a man such as Ted Cruz, whose loyalty was pledged to the Constitution, a man whose vision was a reduction of the D.C. leviathan, a man — the only one in the field — with an actual track record of standing before the Supreme Court and defending that same Bill of Rights, I was willing to accept the Reality TV Ego if he could deliver a victory which did minimal damage to Constitutional principles.

As the campaign wore on and the veneer of civility peeled away, as incitements to violence, along with slander and outright lies became a staple of the bully rhetoric, I found myself struggling increasingly with the compromises needed to accept the man whose ego was as “HUGE!” as his promises to make the “smartest” deals and compel people and nations to comply with his wishes.

Finally, as the mask fell away completely, he chose not just slander, but suborned false witness to be parlayed into outright character assassination of his opponent’s family. And in that moment the amoral monster emerged, and my ability to justify supporting him, at all, was at an end. Winning was all that mattered, and if wrecking a few reputations and leaving a few metaphorical corpses by the wayside was what it took, then the means was justified if it obtained the desired ends.

I cannot, in any conscience at all, support a man who conducts himself in this way. All decency has fled, all civility has crumbled, and all that’s left is the grinning façade of the godfather-in-waiting as he “apologizes” that it was nothing personal, just business, you understand.

And yet, when one of the world’s foremost researchers of the vectors of communist/socialist/fascist corruption and subversion in our government dares make mention of the presumptive nominee’s ties to a hostile regime, the response is open hostility, bordering on threats.

It has become clear that dissenting opinions are also unwelcome in many “conservative” forums and that, in matters of Trump, it is best to fall in line.

I have spent much of the last several days dealing with all manner of logically fallacious arguments why I should abandon my principles and join the Trump Train, ranging from red herrings and straw men to ad hominem and veiled threats. It seems that many have mistaken my allegiance as belonging to the GOP. Let me put that to rest. My allegiance is not to a man, neither to a party. My allegiance is to the Constitution. My allegiance is to Liberty. My allegiance is to what is right and morally/ethically sound.

I do not owe my allegiance to a man or to a party, nor to the victor of a contest fought without honor. Do not presume to tell me what I must do or what I shall do. Do not tell me I am not “conservative” because I do not follow a man who is anything but conservative. One of the fallacious arguments I’ve seen is that I “must help present a unified front” to meet the threat of the Femme Felon in November. Really? I must, must I? Alright, persuade me. Convince me. Make a clear and principled argument. Show me the money.

To date, all I receive are demands, assertions, insults and threats. What utter tripe! Appeal denied. I reject your demands, your assertions, your insults, your threats — veiled or not.

Further, I reject the slander of a man with whom I’ve worked — literally thousands of hours over most of a decade — to expose the external and internal threats to our nation. Trevor Loudon is one of the most honorable and brilliant men I have ever had the honor of knowing.

I find this comportment beyond the pale. I am saddened and angered that I must now decide to endure this travesty so that I might continue to enjoy the company of people for whom I have great fondness and respect, or to sever myself from various groups, risking thereby the loss of such valued associations.

I was therefore compelled to take my leave of both the USA Transnational Report and the Watcher’s Council. For those of you who have provided friendship and camaraderie, reasoned discourse and balanced discussion, opinion and counterpoint with civility, I wish you the best and hope for your prosperity. I would be pleased to continue our association. Above all, I remain a Constitutional Conservative and the Constitution and our founding principles are what I fight for… not the Reality TV of the presidency.

In that spirit, I remain faithfully yours,

Next, I would like to share two insightful comments posted in the previous thread by Black3Actual:

Christi,

1. Trump IS drawing heavily from Democrats. No one is paying attention to the numbers, but they are there. In fact, exit polling shows that, had the early primaries been closed, Trump would have lost and we would most likely have Cruz. This is because the open primaries pushed Trump over the top with Democrat cross-over votes. The polls indicated it was a sizeable number, too.

Now Trump is openly courting Democrats — just like he said he would during the campaign. Again, no one bothered to listen. If they had, they would have heard Trump tell people he was playing a role and, once he had the nomination, he would change. He has also said he looks forward to “making deals” with the Democrats and that he will probably even have Democrats in his cabinet — maybe even as his VP.

No one is listening!

Here is where Beck has — once again — demonstrated that he has his finger on the pulse of WORLDLY matters. Beck expressed a concern for all of this months before, and now we see it coming to pass. Beck is no prophet, he just knows to watch the numbers and take people at their word. This is why Beck — just today even — said that the ‘Conservative/Christian” vote has now been pushed into the same corner in the GOP as black voters have been pushed in the Democrat party. We are both being told to sit down, shut up and vote as we’re told because we have nowhere else to go and, if we do not obey, the other side will win.

Well, last time I looked, when two bad choices are running, no matter what you pick, bad wins. This is all I have been telling people — this, and there IS another choice. We have a pen and a write-in blank on our ballots. USE THEM!

2.  Let me try to sum up why people are afraid of Trump with the words of Cicero:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

Now, it is not that Trump is a traitor, but a Democrat inside a Party that MISTAKENLY believed it was ‘Conservative.’ With Trump — a self-admitted liberal — with Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee, the enemy is inside the gates.

Now, what patriot that loves his nation (beliefs) would NOT sound an alarm when he noticed the enemy is inside the gate? Better yet, what patriot would see the enemy inside the gate and, rather than warn them, tell their fellow countrymen to ignore him and focus on the enemy still outside the walls?

Tough as it may be, we are faced with having to defend in TWO directions. But then, the Lord likes to put you in impossible situations. If you turn to your own efforts to save yourself, you are doomed. But, no matter how bad it looks, if you turn to and trust in him, He will save you. It’s just that He likes to save us at the last possible second and in the most unlikely ways. But this is so, when he does save us, no one can question that it was God Who saved them!

So, as for me and my house, we will trust in and rely on the Lord, knowing that, no matter what happens, He has a plan and that His will shall be done!

Amen!

    Some of Trump’s characteristics should have been obvious even to you. Especially to you.

    To announce his campaign, he comes riding down the escalator of a building he owns, much like Moses descending from Mt. Sinai. He has paid shills in the crowd, to help initiate the cheers. He rapidly identifies The Other—in this case, Mexicans/Hispanics—and declares his ‘solution’ to the problems he says they bring.

    As the months go by, he hones his craft. He quickly endorses keeping all members of another faith out of the country entirely. He knows many will agree with this, because most Americans don’t know we’ve practiced religious and ethnic exclusion before.

    He talks of his future plans in superlatives, as all politicians do, but never details how those plans will work. He boasts of his personal wealth, thereby confirming that “government by the people” is all but impossible today, because one must have money in order to run—and the majority of the people at his rallies make .001% of the money he does. He runs as a populist, and points to his main opponent as part of the “one percent”, when in fact he’s one of them too. He lives in the same social circles, he knows the same people, he plays the same games, and it’s highly unlikely he’ll turn on his own class. In short, he’s yet another flim-flam man masquerading as a messiah.
    I could see that, and I’m not even one of the ‘elect’.

    But We The People—whom you claim to revere—have spoken, and this is what “we” want. There’s five months left to change minds, and you’re not going to do it by hand-wringing or prayer.

      I don’t expect to change minds. If I do change any minds via this blog, it would be very, very minimal. This blog does not have the size of audience of say, a Brad Thor who gets 1 million views of his post on FB.

      America has been badly damaged and sadly, the majority of our people have been fooled not once, but twice by Hussein 0bama. So far, we have survived the onslaught of bad policies mixed with the evil, sin and death that has been perpetuated by his BADministration here and around the world. But for how long? There are still months left in this egregiously and devastatingly evil time in our history. More damage must be in the queue of 0bama’s handlers.

      0bama and his bosses have achieved getting Christian believers and conservatives as labeled as “worthy” of being a most hated class of people. He has elevated so many evil ideologies here that it is deplorable!

      We have been a nation under judgment…mostly because too many Americans have been brain-dirtied by leftist, humanist, Marxist/communist ideology; mixed in with a lot of false “Islamophobia” caused by not recognizing (or even saying it’s name!) that the ISIS/ISIL raging terrorist political ideology of Islam (masquerading as a “religion”) which is growing around the world today is the new totalitarianism caliphate set in motion to destroy and conquer all nations that either can’t, or refuse to see the danger.

      When the Japanese imperialism of WWII rose up, the kamikaze pilots (and leadership) would not give up until not only one nuclear bomb was dropped, but the second one was dropped! Surrender of evil mindsets like these is usually not an option. If they are willing to die for their cause (just as the kamikazees were in the past and the radical Islamic terrorists are willing to do today) the way of survival is that they must be destroyed.

      You and I are different about our objections to Trump. I DO agree with his stance to build the wall to prevent illegal immigration, and I DO agree that America should not allow Syrian refugees in because we know for a FACT that ISIS terrorists are entering our nation through infiltration of the refugee population.

      Trouble is, Trump seems to have already changed his mind a bit on the refugee situation. He has backed off by now claiming that it will be a temporary ban. Why is he saying this now? Because he wants more Dem votes come November. The man will say any lie and ANYTHING in order to get elected. Sounds like 0bama 2.0

    As long as necessary, it seems. If we survived eight years of Bush the Younger (when we had an actual, horrific attack on our soil), followed by eight years of Obama (when we didn’t), then the Republic is a lot stronger than either of us realizes.

    When the Japanese imperialism of WWII rose up, the kamikaze pilots (and leadership) would not give up until not only one nuclear bomb was dropped, but the second one was dropped! Surrender of evil mindsets like these is usually not an option.

    Yeah, BUSTED did say something about “see[ing] if sand will glow in the dark”. Nuclear weapons fit right in with the Christian ideal of smiting the wicked with hellfire.
    But in case you haven’t noticed, we didn’t destroy the Japanese. They’re still around, and are now our allies. Well, maybe the descendants of the ones we killed aren’t, but you can’t have everything. They attacked us first, right?

    So, when it comes to ‘radical Muslims’ and their ‘raging terrorist political ideology…masquerading as a “religion”’, you believe in returning hatred for hatred, then. That makes you better than them…how, exactly? You show god’s love by seeing them killed, and they show allah’s grace by seeing you killed. If it was only the two groups, I wouldn’t care, but people like me get caught in the middle. Not just some of the time, but all of the time!

    You and I are different about our objections to Drumpf.
    We have already established that.
    I DO agree with his stance to build the wall to prevent illegal immigration, and I DO agree that America should not allow Syrian refugees in
    Okay, that’s another bit of your god’s word you’ve chosen to ignore.
    because we know for a FACT that ISIS terrorists are entering our nation through infiltration of the refugee population.
    We know that for a FACT, do we? Got any evidence? I’m sure your beloved DHS would tell us if they do.

    The man will say any lie and ANYTHING in order to get elected. Sounds like 0bama 2.0
    If you truly believe that, your ears need re-calibration. Der Furor is congenitally incapable of sounding like a Democrat; he sounds more like a powered-up version of Rmoney. But at least he never boasted about how rich he was, unlike the current candidate. He didn’t get elected, either, which shows that We The People sometimes show good sense. Perhaps we can do it again.
