Our Orlando Sentinel endorsement for
president in 2020: Not Donald Trump

Original Article

Posted By: cThree, 6/18/2019 3:47:41 PM

Donald Trump is in Orlando to announce the kickoff of his re-election campaign. We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump. Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent. Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump. After 2½ years we’ve seen enough.

If I could, I'd make sure everyone who's at PDT's rally in Orlando is informed that The Orlando Sentinel is a partisan Left rag, and to cancel their subscription to it. It sure seems like almost everyone in Orlando is at the rally.

"We've seen enough"? Really? The rest is a laundry list of talking points obviously read aloud to them because their eyes have been shut tight. Today Orlando is the host venue for the President's 2020 launch. Orlando has chosen this day to dump its brainless NeverTrump bile. I'd like to know what brilliant business planner for the paper made that decision. I'd suggest they keep their resume handy for the next round of downsizing

A very dishonest account--ironic, since it complains about "lies." Most of those "lies" are either opinion or something that might be true--for example, the effect of illegal voting on the popular vote. Who can verify that one way or another? Also, that the stock market was up 56% under Obama. Yeah, from the 2007 crash but nowhere near its previous heights. The markets now are at an all time high. Why wasn't that mentioned? And excusing the wasteful "stimulus" under Obama that did absolutely nothing to stimulate the economy, which remained stagnant for all 8 years of O's administration. And the worst lie of all--that they are open to supporting Republican candidates, which is belied by their support for John Kerry over Bush in 2004. 2004 was before Bush lost his base. No "neutral" news outlet would have chosen Kerry over Bush at that point.

After three paragraphs of favorable comparison of the false prophet in terms of the S&P 500, unemployment, the GDP, and deficit spending we get this: As recently as 2012 we recommended Republican Mitt Romney because of what seemed at the time to be Obama's failure to adequately manage the nation's finances. LBJ, the Frenchman, romney, and never Trump. What a bunch of dolts!

The more hysterical and irrational the left gets over President Trump the more convinced I am of how disruptive and revolutionary he really is. He is a man with a vision and the conviction to lay it all out and let his enemies be damned. He may ultimately not achieve all his goals but no one can deny his commitment, both personal and public, to leaving it all on the field and letting history be his judge. He is not polished or a great orator of tired platitudes but a pragmatist who prepared for 30 years for the battles he knew he would have to fight every minute of his presidency. He is the Randle McMurphy of American politics raging against the Nurse Ratchets of political convention and carefully controlled photo-op fakery. The jury is still out regarding his ultimate success with the economy, trade policy, illegal immigration, denuclearization of North Korea and Iran, and other MAGA promises but no editor or pundit can deny he is by far the only real leader in the Presidential race regardless of party.

Besides being a run-of-the-mill liberal paper, I suspect the Sentinel is hoping to please the areas two biggest employers: Disney and Universal. The two are far left liberal especially when it comes to LGBTQ issues. I expect most of the employees, even in FL, support their positions or at least toe the line.

Darn. What happens when you lose the Orlando Sentinel? (I'm betting they didn't endorse him in 2016, either.) In 2016, if the race had been between Hillary Clinton and the Devil Incarnate, I would have been spending a significant amount of time studying Satan's position on the issues before pulling the voting lever.

Some track record: Except for Lyndon Johnson in 1964, the Sentinel backed Republican presidential nominees from 1952 through 2004, when we recommended John Kerry over another four years of George W. Bush. And they’d consider Romney or Kasich if they primaried PDJT. I remember now how much I hated Orlando and why.

We've been turned off by his appeals to social conservatives and immigration extremists. Like most presidential hopefuls, including Obama four years ago, Romney faces a steep learning curve on foreign policy.-- They also slammed O on the stagnant economy. But that was then...

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, earned more than $15 million in the two years after Biden left government in early 2017, according to tax records released by his campaign on Tuesday. The majority of their income came from speaking engagements and payments for two books written by Biden, a top contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. (Snip) ... the Bidens earned about $11 million in 2017 and $4.58 million in 2018. About $13.2 million of that was attributable to book payments.

The global prices for many agricultural products are expected to fall over the next decade, despite a growing population's rapidly increasing demand for food, the United Nations predicts. A report released this week by the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization and the 36-member-nation Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development envisions that demand for food will increase some 15 percent over the next 10 years, as the world's population grows and more people escape poverty. But agricultural production is expected to increase even faster.

Democrats on Capitol Hill are fuming over President Trump’s plan to deliver a speech at the Lincoln Memorial during the traditional July 4th celebration on the National Mall, saying the event should appear non-political. The U.S. Park Police confirmed this week that Trump planned to attend this year’s celebration, which typically brings thousands to the nation’s capital. “President Trump’s efforts to insert politics into a celebration of our nation’s history is extremely alarming,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said in a statement on Thursday.

In a video posted by the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow on Twitter, two of its activists approached Warren for a picture—she poses for photos with anyone who wants them after campaign events—and introduced themselves as American Jews with a proposition for her.
