What 'Forever Trump' Really Means

Original Article

Posted By: abuela10, 1/19/2021 7:46:12 AM

Recently Michael Brown wrote a column titled Neither Never Trump Nor Forever Trump in which he urges Trump supporters to move on. Another pundit, Robert W. Merry of The American Conservative writes "But now Republicans must push beyond their disgraced and deeply flawed standard-bearer to remake themselves under new leadership." In the House, a Democrat representative spoke about the necessity for the second impeachment to ensure that Trump will never run for office again. The mistake that all of these pundits make is assuming that we Trump supporters(snip) No way do we want him to run again. Why not? We do not consider him a disgrace. We love him.

People like this Michael Brown and the other character mentioned in the article, whoever they, really believe we're going back to business as usual; they actually think we can go from a great high with President Trump to a backsliding low with those who have proven themselves to be traitors to US. The squishy middle has never been our friend, so we're no longer listening to them. The fakers have outed themselves. No, President Trump forced them out, so they're useless going forward. They need to wake up and get over themselves. As for President Trump, as Alicia stated, we LOVE HIM! FTA. "We didn't start out caring for him in the beginning but after four years of watching this man get pummeled day after day and never give up fighting for all Americans and America, we now consider him perhaps the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln." Amen, Alicia, amen.

The Republican party will restore itself to what it was before Trump - the fading image of the Democrat party, always a decade behind. One man alone cannot hold back the tide. Our problem is deeper and spiritual in nature. Our nation has turned to the worship of earth and man. Only God can turn back this darkness.

When someone tells me to “move on,” I ask how does one “move on” from an election steal of 75-80 million votes? Their only answer is to say that it didn’t happen because to admit that it did happen is too terrible a future to contemplate. No, I won’t be “moving on.”

May the Lord bless President Trump and his family. President Trump's presidency will stand as one of the best this country has ever had. If he runs again it would be wonderful. If he chooses not, to whom will we turn? Hopefully we won't have to wait between "Lincolns" for the next great president. It will take some doing, and as Franklin remarked regarding the affairs of mankind, "the hand of Providence."

Republicans mistakenly assume that Trump voters will be reabsorbed by their party. They are still begging for donations. One day soon it will hit them that we are no longer with them and never will be again. Loyalty is reserved for the strong and the brave, not pandering weasels.

I go back and forth thinking dims are stupid and dims are evil. It's difficult for me to believe anyone could be stupid enough to be a dim. It's also difficult for me to believe that some of my friends and neighbors are evil. I think I understand how hitler had the support of the german people: a series of false choices, a series of bad choices, and misinformation/propaganda and suppression of information. "Defund the Police" is a statement of absolute violence against the social structure. I would like to have one of my dim friends explain and defend it. I think it is indefensible for a civilized person. Alicia describes how I feel about Trump. A famous opinion by Justice Holmes (US Supreme Court) is that "even a dog knows the difference between being tripped over and being kicked." We know Trump fought for us, for civilization. For Western Civilization. Of which the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence may be the culminating documents. (Of course, the dims representing the slave interests injected their slave laws). Republicans should know we know who's on our side and who is a fake, who might trip sometimes and who is kicking us. We know the dims want to destroy civilization. They have invited "Defund the Police" and other equally extreme violence into their party, some of them wanting it some of them just wanting to use it, to harness it. But it's a mad beast. And they are now mad. Trump is a Cincinnatus. The second Cincinnatus of the West. "to make men blush there were but two." But his victory is not yet won. We must keep our eyes and ears open to join him in Phase II, whatever that might be.

No one should have to endure the abuse that Trump and his family have endured for the past six years. To his credit, he knew what was in store for him and his family when he started his quest, reportedly turning to one of his sons, and saying "now we'll find out who our real friends are." My advice to him is to play golf and keep a low profile for six months to a year, and deny the haters any red meat.

The Fascist-owned media call Trump names because he defied the special interests. Let us remember how well the whole world economy did when he flouted all their stupid plans. Let us remember that every time we hear the Fascist-owned media calling him disgraced. How incomes rose, how the income gap closed, how all groups in America, all, were fully employed. How the Democrats were no longer able to launch wars they never meant to win, for the sake of donations to their foundations and campaigns.

#5 - The Republicn elite doesn't have to understand anything. Despite all the drang and sturm expressed here and elsewhere they will likely see the vast majority of MAGA Trumpistas voting for the GOP becasue there is no alternative to the commie Democrats. A third party? Sure, go take over the Libertarians for an easy pick-up. Or, go through the motions that others have tried and failed in achieving. Politics is a practical exercise in power, not ideology. The Republicans have half the market, with the ballot access and finance laws working for them and against upstarts. Take what you can get...that means getting involved in your local party as a precinct captain or county/state officer to reform...and even to run for office yourself. At least work to get rid of those damn Dominion machines, eliminate broad vote-by-mail schemes, and institute voter ID rules that at least mirror the requirements for boarding an airplane. Republicans hold the majority in most state legislatures already. Or, you can hike off with your musket to the village green and wait for the red coats.

Reading anything that Alicia Colon writes is always special. Her sentence...."we didn't start out caring for him in the beginning but....." sums up so beautifully what many of experienced over these last five years. There has never been another "politician" in my nearly 70 year lifetime that started out the way Trump did, from his business success to the presidency, and in the process built a following so deep and wide, that indeed, his election success was of epic proportions. His extraordinary accomplishments, fulfilled even under the most difficult circumstances, only deepened and intensified the grotesque hate of his detractors, that short of assassination, the only way to TRY to STOP him was to steal his election. There is no one, not a single person, male or female, that can take his place. I hope and pray, though, that in these next four years, he will build a movement that is unstoppable, starting in 2022, with taking back the House and Senate with true MAGA candidates. Without taking those two chambers back, we will never have an honest election. The movement and Congress will have to wrestle, and I mean deep down, mud wrestling, to get back the powers of an honest government. Tomorrow, January 20th, 2021, will be one of the darkest days in our country's history. Let us get through the day in thanks and prayer to God, refreshed and energized on January 21, to take back our country with our beloved leader, Donald J. Trump in command. May God bless him and his family and all of America.

We were blessed by four years of the greatest president of our lifetimes. Donald J. Trump was the champion of Western Civilization, of God, of our Nation and our property rights. I will forever support him and if the Commies attack his family I will defend then financially. We already cut off Fox News completely, which I thought would not be possible. Trump changes the Rothchild’s New World Order forever. China is forever exposed. We know the CCP plans, even is Xiden has been purchased. The Wall is a symbol of how to grow wages. No new wars, our allies must pay their fair share. The Supreme Court and judicial branch is good for nothing. There are two systems of justice. Prosperity and full employment results from capitalism. We can return manufacturing through tariffs and Trade Treaties. Main Street has different interests than Wall Street. Abortion is bad. History must be preserved as it was, statues and all. Freedom of expression is in the hands of Google, Apple, YouTube, Dorsey, Zuckerberg. The NIH is a bunch of Quacks like Fauci and Gates. I will forever support trump and protect his family who gave their all for US. Thank you Mr. President!

as for me, I am, as for many years I wasn't, someone who believed the political establishment and the other purveyors of lies and mis/disinformation. the breath of fresh air that DJT gave us was so uplifting, I was immediately drawn into his sphere of influence. anyone who speaks the truth, especially in the political arena is above and beyond those who choose to exist in the middle. DJT didn't give speeches, he talked to us, as equals, which when there are notable examples of worthless humans as in the US Senate, is so beyond that of any person. DJT never acknowledged that he was a "politician" in the truest sense of the word, rather he always professed to be like anyone in the massive numbers of people who attended his rally's. If he decides to never run again for office and I wouldn't blame him if he did decide not to, he would always be the most admired President in the history of this country and the one who earned the title of President of the United States. we, as a nation are eminently better off today because of DJT who single handedly fought off every evil doer who meant him and us, harm. I believe DJT was able to pursue his objectives because he knew we were out here and would support him under any circumstances and the greatest chant from the multitudes of rally attendees was "We Love You", something that no politician has never nor will ever hear from any attendees at any rally for anyone. without any equivocation, I will always love and respect Donald J. Trump for being 1.) an honorable man and 2.) the greatest United States President and 3.) the man who established a movement which will always be in the hearts of men and women who love this country but who abhor the politicians who mean to do our country harm.

#16. That ship has sailed. There will be no great political reawakening. There simply can't be. The rats took the ballot box off the table, right in front of us and NO one did anything about it. NO courts and NO swing state politicians. Face reality, it is over. The rock solid Red states will be flooded with the millions of parasites the rats will invite into the country. They have been doing it for the last 20 years and now that they control everything, they will finish that plan. They OWN the critical state and federal offices, so your 'involvement' just means moving up the list of enemies of the state that they will be dealing with. China won. They have control over the biggest whale anyone ever harpooned. They will feast off of this for years, decades if needed. We are Tibet. Everything we own is an open store to the Chinese. They have been selecting and 'harvesting' their citizens for years. Do you think they will not to that same thing to us? You have no protections via our justice system. It is just starting. Once they have the 'musket' problem under control, the reset will speed up. You constantly mock the idea of a citizenry fighting for their very lives, but given the direction we are on, that is unavoidable. What is worthy of mocking is the idea that any conventional political campaign is going to reverse the stranglehold China has on every American throat now. Brazen, proven, corrupt criminals succeeded in the biggest crime in history. Not one of them suffered for it, but we can always vote them out of office, right?

To Reopen America, FDA

After weeks of being holed up inside, hundreds of millions of Americans eagerly await guidance from their governors and the Trump administration on when they can return to work. Unfortunately, a vaccine appears too far off to serve as a prerequisite for reopening the economy. This has prompted officials to call for extensive national testing efforts to identify individuals free of coronavirus. But these efforts require Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of rapid at-home testing, and the agency appears to be dragging its feet. Now more than ever, Americans need a responsive FDA that puts patients’ lives over half-measures and unnecessary risk aversion.

President Trump clearly overstated the case when he asserted that the president’s authority in the current crisis is “total.” The fact is that the Constitution doesn’t grant total authority to any branch of the government. It looks, though, at least to us, as if Mr. Trump was set off by news that some states were entering into regional pacts to plan the reopening of their economies. If that is what set Mr. Trump off, it’s easy to see why. Mr. Trump and all other officers and legislators and judges of the federal and state governments are bound by oath to the Constitution.

The death of John Prine, a survivor of cancer who was lost Tuesday to the coronavirus, takes from us one of America’s greatest troubadours of what we call the Vietnam generation. We were almost exactly the same age and had been in the army at roughly the same time, albeit in different theaters. Yet, in an irony, we failed to fully appreciate Prine’s art until we were educated by our children. Prine wrote and sang scores of songs, and by no means all about Vietnam; some crackled with humor, others ebbed with sadness. The one that rivets us the most, though, is the ballad “Sam Stone,”

Marshal Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto commanded the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II until he was killed in April 1943. Despite the dialogue from the 1970 WWII film "Tora! Tora! Tora!" Yamamoto probably did not say in the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." But Yamamoto likely either wrote or said something similar: "I can run wild for six months ... after that, I have no expectation of success."

The most inane of the many fatuous arguments raging over the administration’s handling of the coronavirus is the debate about whether the Democrats distracted President Trump with the impeachment effort when he would otherwise have been raising the drawbridge earlier. This seems to have begun as Republicans other than the President asserted that the Democrats had no standing to complain about a slow start to grappling with the problem because they had wasted six weeks with a completely spurious impeachment case.

The last time the United States faced a worldwide pandemic – the “Spanish flu” of 1918 and 1919 -- cities rolled up the sidewalks, closed theaters, and shuttered saloons. Firemen, policemen, nurses and panicked citizens covered their faces with gauze masks. The virulent influenza emerged in the last year of World War I, incubated in American army camps and spread overseas on troop ships. By the time the influenza finally burned itself out, over 45,000 Americans in uniform and some 600,000 American civilians were dead of the disease. It’s estimated that the Spanish flu killed 50 million worldwide.

The polls show Joe Biden leading President Trump in the presidential race. Looking at the last 10 surveys in the RealClearPolitics average of polls matching Trump versus Biden, Biden is leading in every one of them — by anywhere from 3 to 10 points. Biden's average lead in those 10 polls is 5.5 points. The results echo polls from this point in 2016, when the general election matchup was Trump versus Hillary Clinton. Taking 10 polls from this time in the last campaign, Clinton led in every one of them — by anywhere from 6 to 18 points. Her average lead in those 10 polls was 10.5 points.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is explicitly pointing his finger at President Donald Trump for helping to spur the attack on the Capitol by the outgoing president’s supporters. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on the Senate floor, “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 attack. A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. became the 46th U.S. president on Wednesday, completing the most daunting power transfer in recent American history.
