Trump Wins Indiana, Cruz Suspends Campaign

7.5.15donaldtrump  With his win in Indiana, Donald trump becomes the presumptive Republican nominee.   Also following the win for Trump, Ted Cruz announced he would be suspending his campaign.

Both of these events will no doubt lead to more people, who have been critical of Donald Trump, to take the opportunity to act as if he is the second coming of Ronald Reagan. They will ignore the things he has said and supported in the past. Such as his support for the assault weapons ban and a longer waiting period.

For some this was reason enough to not vote for John Kasich, yet they will give Trump the benefit of the doubt. They will ignore his past statements on social issues such as abortion. They will ignore the hate speech of his entire campaign. His attacks on Hispanics and Muslims.

It seems the only reason many of these people can justify their support for Trump, is that he mouths the things they want. Walls and laws.

The fact they call Trump the anti-establishment candidate, the outsider, is laughable. Donald Trump has been manipulating the system for decades as a lobbyist, spending millions to buy corrupt politicians. So how can you consider him the outsider?

I have been wrong about how far Trump would get in the process, I underestimated the anger and hatred of the American people. So go ahead Trump Jumpers, take your victory lap. I on the other hand, will be the most disappointed person, if I am right about what a Trump presidency will mean for America. I actually hope I am wrong. I fear we may be in for the bloodiest days in this nations history.

While the primary process is a mostly closed system, except for a few open primaries, we will have to wait to see if the general voting public will also embrace the nationalistic, isolationist, jingoism message of the Trump campaign. Or will they reject such a message.

I know that many simply are hoping to see Trump and Clinton in the debates, to see Donald Trump call Hillary Clinton names, to call her a liar, to criticize her appearance, to again mouth the message that many long to hear.

I am just not convinced an angry, negative message is the best reason to support anyone.

    I would like to hear Trump say that Hillary rode her husband’s coattails into public office, and protected him from public scrutiny over his many infidelities, purely for political gain (“…stand by your man…”). That she introduced no significant legislation as a US Senator, including any laws pertaining to women’s pay equity. I want Trump to address Hillary’s “experience”, such as endorsing the deposing of Mubarak in Egypt and Gaddafi in Libya- now both ISIS strongholds, the 3am phone call from a US Ambassador who was later murdered and then dragged through the streets in Benghazi, and her support for a “deal” with Iran that was really a treaty that required Senate approval. Not to mention her jeopardizing national security and the safety of US operatives abroad, by her cavalier use of a personal server for State Department business- and when I say business, I also include the play-for-pay relationship between her “foundation” and zillionaire Arab oligarchs.

    The media narrative is that the 2016 election is a mere formality. Really? Then why is Hillary fighting tooth-and-nail with an aged, obscure, self-proclaimed socialist from Vermont?

    Obviously, Trump will open and examine- thoroughly- all of Hillary’s massive pile of baggage. And the contents therein may prove be quite toxic to her supposed coronation.

    I honestly can’t see the Hillary campaign agreeing to many debates that aren’t controlled by her advocates.

    I would like to see Trump force Hillary to clarify what she meant when she said, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans,” ….. “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”

    There is actually a difference in the threat to national security between a planned attack, and a random attack, and the fact that The Secretary of State would question the difference is very strange, and Trump should call her on that.

    The Trump campaign should also run multiple advertisements using the video of Hillary saying ,”We came, we saw, he died”, as she cackled, and reveled with joy, over Gaddafi’s murder, like she was some sort of psychopath.

  3. Say it Ain't So says:

    It’s time to join the Party and get behind Mr. Trump. Our colleagues have voted, It’s Time.

  4. Henry says:

    Just because one participates in the political process either by voting, financially contributing or handing out political materials doesn’t mean that they are accepted by the party establishment.

    Contrar people running for a political office for the first time and not the party favorite is just what it is ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT candidate.

    Trump is certainly that. People across the nation are truly fed up and this is the year of anti-establishment candidates. Career politicians will not win this year, period. Argue all you want, you were wrong last year, right now and going into this election. It was obvious as the nose on your face but you don’t see it.
    You know why? You aren’t talking to the people who are in our communities. You are talking to the people within the box called “The Establishment”

    You will be forever out of the loop of what the average person is thinking and feeling. Everyone saw it coming but you.

    If my memory serves me in my old age, I believe last year you compared the wanna be candidate for Governor of Delaware Lacey Laffery to Trump. Both new and anti establishment candidates.

    Looks like its a bad year to be a career politician period.

  5. Rusty says:

    Frank, It’s not anger, its anguish over the state of our country. Trump talked most recently about how Americans made more money 18 years ago than they do now, and most work two jobs. Its all about jobs and the fact that nothing is getting done in Washington. Go Trump & Gingrich!!!

  6. delacrat says:


    If you don’t want “to see Donald Trump call Hillary Clinton names, to call her a liar, to criticize her appearance, ” then you should be pulling for Bernie Sanders to be the Democratic nominee.

  7. fightingbluehen says:

    Rush Limbaugh is having a wake for the Ted Cruz right now. He’s tried to mask his support for Cruz, but I guess he has finally given in to his true feelings…..poor guy.

  8. Fish Bites says:

    Can’t wait to see who Trump thinks is a qualified Supreme Court nomination. He’s already suggested his sister, who is no conservative.

  9. Rick says:

    Trump will probably nominate a fellow New Yorker; Al Sharpton (Sharpton’s real last name is Washington).

  10. Frank Knotts says:

    Henry, what I give here are my opinions. Sometimes I hope that people may share them, sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. Both are fine. I still hold the same opinion of Trump. If elected he may well be the worst president ever. You support him because he mouths your narrow views. It’s easy to talk about principles, it’s harder to live by them.

  11. waterpirate says:

    If not voting for Trump, will you vote for Hillary? Trump is this countries lesser evil at this point. We have tried everything else in POTUS. Why not Trump?

  12. Frank Knotts says:

    WP, truly I have not made up my mind exactly what to do about that particular box. But I will not be voting for the guy I see as the greatest threat to my religious liberty. I am working on a post on this topic and should be posting in the near future.

  13. Rick says:

    I will not be voting for the guy I see as the greatest threat to my religious liberty.

    Are you out of your mind? Exactly how will Trump threaten your “religious liberty?”

    If not voting for Trump, will you vote for Hillary?

    Any disgruntled Republican really need only ask one question; do I want Hillary Clinton to appoint anywhere from one to four Supreme Court justices? Think of the ramifications. Imagine, leftist judicial orthodoxy on the court for a generation. Second Amendment? Forget it. Uncensored internet? Gone. Race quota systems? Absolutely! Wage controls? Of course! Forced union membership? Right on! Speech codes? Social justice!

    This is a one-issue election. Sit it out at your own peril.

  14. Henry says:

    Rick I nearly fell in floor on Frank’s response. Frank religious?

    No need to respond, Rick said it all.

    Get out of the establishment box and you will find out that the people in our community are who vote candidates in office not the establishment.

    This is turning into another 2010 election year.

  15. mouse says:

    Right to work for less now!

  16. Frank Knotts says:

    Henry, 2010? How did that work out for Republicans in Delaware sending people to DC?
    Yes Rick, religious liberty. A president who would ban immigration based on religious orientation, puts all faith at risk.
    And as for your list of fears? You forgot forced sex with animals.

  17. Rick says:

    Yes Rick, religious liberty. A president who would ban immigration based on religious orientation, puts all faith at risk.

    You are a self-professed Christian. How will Trump threaten your religious liberty, or that of any other U.S. citizen? However, I’ll give you an A+ for regurgitating a Hillary talking-point.

    And as for your list of fears? You forgot forced sex with animals.

    “Forced sex with animals” is probably more likely than your hysterical “threat to religious liberty.”

    However, let’s look more closely at my “list of fears.”

    The left will once again try to have “a well regulated militia” be given precedence over “keep and bear arms.” Thus, only the Nat’l Guard- the government- will have guns.

    An “uncensored internet?” The left has repeatedly assaulted the free internet.

    “Wage controls?” What do you think the $15-minimum wage is?

    “Race quotas?” Ever heard of affirmative action? Quotas have been limited by recent opinions. They will be changed if Hillary can pack the court.

    These are real concerns, as opposed to your hysterical and bogus “religious freedom” nonsense.

  18. mouse says:

    What kind of animals?

  19. mouse says:

    I’m going to bitch about people on welfare then shill for Walmart and against a living wage so I have to subsidize the poor so Walmart owners can get a tax cut lol

  20. mouse says:

    It’s interesting how the 1% polluting monopoly class can so easily get the rubes they exploit to shill for them

  21. mouse says:

    And I just love everything about the job creators and how they hire illegals for slave labor but I hate the illegals. And if I vote for the slave traitors, I too will be a wealthy CEO

  22. Dave says:

    I’m still ambivalent about the religious liberty versus public accommodation thing. I think that both are rights and liberties and one should not trump the other. I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it, but it seems to me that many/most religions have in their doctrine the practice of that religion extending not just into ones private life, but into their public life as well.

    However, a society that allows discriminatory actions in the provision of goods and services effectively argues for apartheid, where the best that can be achieved is “separate but equal.” The problem is, there is no way to determine where the line is to be drawn in public accommodation, because if you permit a discriminatory practice in one area (i.e. wedding cakes) where would the bright line be to prevent that practice from being pervasive in all aspects of society?

    To me, the only logical construct is to apply the religious liberty test at the individual level, where an individual (except a government official) could choose to exercise their beliefs, but the business cannot. The business is what provides the public accommodation, not the individual.

    Of course, then there is the question of a man show where there is no distinction between the business and the individual. I think I’ll mull that over some more.

  23. Frank Knotts says:

    Rick, quit being thick headed. A government that can infringe the rights of one religion can certainly infringe the rights of all religions.

  24. mouse says:

    I’ve invented my own religion where all the women and money are mine. I’m a 401 C 3 non profit so I don’t pay no stinkin taxes.

Got something to say? Go for it!
