Why This Ex-Never Trumper Wants Four
More Years

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/29/2020 1:12:41 PM

In October of 2016, James Taranto wrote in the Wall Street Journal that I was “one of the 2 or 3 most intense Never Trumpers we’ve encountered all year.” He was right. (Snip) My criticism of Trump was relentless and brutal. I exposed his connections to Mafia figures, I latched on to any vague allegation of racism I could find, I didn’t just want him to lose, I wanted him to lose in a landslide. Thursday night, as I watched my president accept the nomination of the Republican Party for the second time, I fully realized how wrong I had been.This is not new for me, I’m wrong a lot.


Ronald Reagan would have welcomed Marcus into the Big Tent...

This is a terrific article. He even addresses those Republicans who need to tell us they have the wincies about his tweets, his bluntness, his defending himself... and generally view him as NOCD (Not Our Class, Dear).

I thank Donald Trump for helping me find the courage to be a part of the fight. Here’s to four more years. This should have been the title, not the closing sentence. (Modified slightly) I got on board and voted for him in the last election, but I felt very much the same way about 4 years ago.

I always enjoyed watching the closing of the old Billy Graham Crusade when the folks left their seats to come forward to make a life-changing commitment. This story sort of reminded me of that. I believe we all have the right to be better and smarter today than we were yesterday.

Nice to hear a professional journalist admit a mistake. Fta: "It is fashionable these days for former Republicans to gang up and sling dirt at Trump." Only in New York, Washington and the West Coast. Finally we have President that has found the people's voice, not those of Wall Street elites, Beltway lobbyists, Hollywood and Silicon Valley. Dave, may yours be the first of many Dominos that fall to admit they were wrong. Now go try and do something about the corruption in journalism. By the way Dave, you will not be wrong about Trump being reelected for 4 more years.

He sees the writing on the wall for November. So, we're just supposed to overlook that he actively opposed the president and approved of anything the Left did to remove him. What's next? Does Jonah Goldberg jump on the Trump Train?

O k a y! Can we talk for a moment about all those who have fought, lied about, and protested the will of the American citizens who elected President Trump? I really do feel disenfranchised by voter fraud, illegals & the-dead participation in the last election that gave the House to nasty Nan and the evil Squad. To save this great, exceptional nation, we must elect all Republicans (House & Senate) who will support our president, then hold their feet to the fire to root out Swamp remnants.

Good for Mr. Marcus. I hope that there a millions more like him out there. FTA: "For me, he was no longer the lesser of two evils but a man I dearly hope will remain our president." I laughed out loud when I heard Trump say some of his brash truths about illegal aliens and the border, early on. I remember telling my wife, "If this guy is for real, I'll vote for him." Ted Cruz seemed more real at the time of the Kansas primary, but by a few weeks after that, Cruz and other favorites, like Walker folded up like umbrellas in a wind storm. And I was HAPPY to support the President in 2016, fully on board by September. We have to win this time, too.

A refreshing and honest reversal and admission of a conversion in his view of what Conservatism SHOULD be, an active participation, not an failed, theoretical academic exercise. Simply, it is all about the American People. Fancy words that don't work for the people are useless. As with all such conversions, my attitude is welcoming but reserved. Time will tell if this is real or not. One thing to note, Trump is not right because he is successful, although the two things are often linked. He is right because he is right. That's why when he tweets, fighting a vicious media/dems/Left, he is fighting for the right things and the only way to confront these fools is straight on and forcibly. Such confrontations make a lot of people nervous but the point is, you will NOT win with polite conversations. They don't care what you have to say and you are not going to convince them otherwise. They need to be confronted and their arguments need to be rejected.

Get ready, black America! You’re about to get forty acres from a fool.

As Joe Biden constructs his new administration, individuals from the Obama administration are quietly resurfacing in positions of power. Some of these people are well known, others lesser so. But they all played critical roles at various times during the Obama administration. Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser and now the “top adviser to the president on domestic policy and related decisions,” has admitted to participating in the unmasking of members of the Trump transition team. Unmasking is the process whereby a U.S. citizen’s identity is revealed from collected surveillance. Initially, Rice publicly denied the allegations, claiming that “I know nothing about this.

Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
