New Yorker MAGAZINE on Trump
WHEN AN ULTRA, ULTRA LIBERAL MAGAZINE SUCH AS THE NEW YORKER
.....WRITES AN ARTICLE SUCH AS THIS... YOU REALIZE AMERICA IS FINALLY
WAKING UP TO THE CORRUPTION, INCOMPETENCE AND IGNORANCE OF
This is absolutely brilliant. A surprising article from the New Yorker
Magazine. This magazine has always been a left wing apologizer so this
article is even more amazing. Don't pass it up.
The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote
extensively about Obama even before he was nominated.
"Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald
The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the
political and media establishment.
And now, Mr. Kaplan’s article;
Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black
guys just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have
simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name
Only." They knew there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between
Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham
and the other GOP candidates.
Ben Carson was not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton
machine would pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz
will (justifiably so) would have been tied up with natural born
citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure
they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall
Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides -
lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually
fix a few things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an
[islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)
Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the
Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in
2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and
Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in
Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by
the last six years of Republican failures.
No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment
candidates [dems or reps] would have slashed federal spending, rein in
the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the
tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of
Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald
Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education. (Of
course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.)
No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's major
problems will be solved by Rodham as she is simply the third verse of
Obama's waning swan song.
Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
. Anyone named Bush
. Anyone named Clinton
. Anyone who's held political office
. Political correctness
. Illegal immigration
. Massive unemployment
Our out of control federal spending
Our National Debt that exceeds our GDP (Can you say Greece?)
. Phony "official" unemployment and inflation figures
. Welfare waste and fraud
Money being spent on Illegal immigrants
. People faking disabilities to go on the dole
. VA waiting lists
. TSA airport groping
. The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes
. Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
. Michelle Obama's vacations
. Michelle Obama's food police
. Barack Obama's golf
. Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures
. Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America
. Valerie Jarrett
. " Holiday trees"
. Cop killers while Black Lives Matter
. Gun confiscation threats
. Stagnant wages
. Boys in girls' bathrooms
. Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place the Civil War
in the correct century... and that's just the short list.
Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these
issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address these
issues. They know that Trump is their way of saying, "Screw you,
Hillary Rodham and all the Do Nothing Republicans!" The more the
talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more
supporters he gains. (The only pundits who seem to understand what is
going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John
But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a
new engine installed by experts - and Hillary Rodham is not a
mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband
abandoned. Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find
the best ones to work in his garage. He won't hire his brother-in-law
or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and
"How dare they revolt!" the "elites" are bellowing. Well, the citizens
are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. "But
Trump will hand the election to Clinton !" That is what the Karl
Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly
shoved "Maverick" McCain down GOP throats in 2008 - knowing he would
lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would be
nothing more than a caretaker, not working to restore America 's
greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively
in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation
can perhaps survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can
survive both - and there is little evidence that Hillary Rodham
understands that. The United States cannot forever continue on the
path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.
Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but
the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford
to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even
if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or
Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; and
we cannot continue trying to spend our way out of debt.
Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald
Reagan. But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all
the other issues are irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or
a tunnel could kill thousands. One jihadist poisoning a city's water
supply could kill tens of thousands. One electromagnetic pulse attack
from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions.
Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don't care
that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of
property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim
Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
While Attorney General Loretta Lynch's greatest fear is someone giving
a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being
gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [islamic] lunatic who
treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who is fool
enough to think that 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.
The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not
because they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will
upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to
veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will
veto legislation that spends too much.
You can be certain that if Hillary wins in November 2016 . [her]
cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we've seen
before. The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Obama
administrations will be back in charge. The hacks from Goldman Sachs
will continue to call the shots. And America will continue her
continuing decline as other great democracies in history.
If the establishment wins, America loses.
