Trump shouldn't run

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 5/25/2022 4:37:44 AM

Donald J. Trump was the best POTUS in my very long lifetime. His policies were effective, making America prosperous, energy independent, and lowering minority unemployment to record low levels. Everything he did, with the possible exception of the COVID lockdown, was quintessentially Trump; competent, encouraging, and salutary for America and her people. We were blessed to have him in the White House. Although many Americans cringed, we nonetheless put up with Trump’s coarseness and his inflated ego because he gave America back to the people.

Amen. And I doubt he really wants to do so, but I hope he doesn't dangle the ankle until it's too late for others to mount an effective campaign.

He's the only one that can reverse the massive damage to the country and the world, wrought by JoeRICObama Gatesofhell and Dr No of Davos. Blackguards all.

Honestly, I am conflicted about the possibility of President Trump running again. Democrats stole the election not only from him but also the American people who, I believe overwhelmingly voted for him. He deserves a second term and I would love to see him at the Capitol taking the oath of office again. I also agree that he is a handful. He shoots from the hip and takes no prisoners. Americans are weary of this divided political climate but believing it will change if DeSantis runs or anyone else is naive. Democrats will try and destroy anyone even if it is more difficult to do. They don’t care. They hate anyone who opposes them as much as they hate Trump. They may even hate DeSantis more because they can see his potential. He is a real threat. If I could offer any advice to PDT is that he look to the future. Remind people what his administration did to make this country great and promise to do it again, even better. Remove the word “I” from his vocabulary. Let the stolen election go. Let someone else fight that battle. Americans know the truth. All that matters is defeating the horrific party that is destroying the country. Democrats are so vulnerable because their policies are total failures. They have created this toxic atmosphere but President Trump should try and elevate the narrative. Stick to the issues. They are more than enough ammunition. I would love to see a Trump/DeSantis ticket, but I would vote for DeSantis if Trump does not run. If President Trump puts his ego aside and begins a campaign hammering the failed policies of the democrat party, he will win. No one likes a whiner even if they are right and justified. Change the rhetoric. Put the emphasis on the future. We all know what can be accomplished with a real leader at the helm. Be that leader.

“We need tranquility” is what got us Biden. Conservatives are not quietly sad. We are depressed: America is lost.

I've occasionally thought the same thing. He did make me cringe when he was in office, and his complete naivete when it came to advisors was even more cringe worthy. It looked like he was intentionally choosing people who would undermine him and us. Still, his ego will not allow him to not run. He doesn't back down from a fight and he doesn't like to lose. And he has a huge legitimate score to settle. If he runs he will win. The communists cannot steal the election like that again, though they may steal it some other way.

Let Pennsylvania be the example why Trump should not again run for president. I'd like to think I'm wrong, but as it stands now, Pennsylvania is going to lose a Republican governorship because our nominee is focused on 2020 and his pro-Trump agenda prompted his Democrat opponent to fund his campaign. And because the former president couldn't stay out of it, the Oz-McCormack debacle has prompted a Civil War in our own party, as evidenced by more and more ad hominem comments on Lucianne.

Does the author really think the Democrats and their media will be less strident against any other Republican candidate (or President) who is as pro-America and effective as Trump?

I believe MB Matthews' ideas are imbecilic! It's gonna take someone like Trump to get us out of this mess we now call America. His ideas go along very well with the likes off Conway, Wilson, Schmidt and the rest of the Paedophiles making up the Lincoln Project. So MB, go to hell!

CTH: "A Frequent Question About Trump Hires Working Against the America First Agenda" "Ask yourself how Trump ended up with an entire cabinet and their lower-level executive branch political appointees who were dedicated to destroying the America First movement. Because if you don't know how it happened, you won't be able to to stop it from happening again. "It doesn’t matter who the President is, they do not choose their cabinet. Ultimately the senate does. That’s the core problem."

I go with Reply 7. It is not the man Trump that the media hates, it is the message. There has been NO Republican president in my lifetime that has not faced less essential media abuse. The times are ruder, just as much as Trump is rude. Actually, he's honest. I trust in his judgement implicitly. Whatever decision he makes, it will be the right one. Look at his record on "right" decisions. I don't think hiding from the hate is gonna cut it. If we get a more placid leader, we are (fill in the word, you know what it is).

I think it will be Trump/ DeSantis. They would be unstoppable! DeSantis would get a lot done as VP. He's not too proud to wait his turn to be President! I agree we need Trump to get this country turned around after the wreckage from Biden and his Administration who are determined to do as much damage as they can before they're out of office. So far, they are succeeding! One can hope Trump will be elected and will slash and burn what Biden has put in place....kind of what Biden did to what Trump had put in place! Turnabout is fair play!

The next Republican presidential primary if Trump is in it will be a bloodbath that the media and left (but I repeat myself) will revel in. The Republican bench is too deep and strong to endure that much strife. Get behind DeSantis and keep being a king maker, sir.

I’m leaning the same way! Sadly I believe Trump to be so angry and bitter by the election issues, he will not be able to communicate a positive love of the American people approach! I’m not even sure he is still willing to fight! He sure didn’t fire Fauci and Birx! Enjoy retirement Mr President! We love you and always will! It is time for a leader to attack today and tomorrow problems…including elimination of the deep state!

We shouldn't vote for Trump because Democrats will be outraged? Odd, that's high on the list of why I WILL vote for Trump. What we don't need a bloody, self destructive, primary battle. And that's what the Trump haters are willing to damage us with to get the Orange Man Bad. Trump earned and deserves another shot. He did an excellent job, (are you better off than you were four years ago?). So ENOUGH with the Machiavellian, Clinton-Triangulation, arm chair quarterback stuff. It doesn't work well for us when we let the Democrats dictate who our candidate is going to be. Hasn't anyone noticed that yet?

Wimp.War is not pretty. Trump put it all on the line for the American people. He didn't do it for fame or glory. He fought for the common man like no other president in history. People instinctively knew he was genuine and his believed in his America first policies. Turn our backs on now because a little drama might hurt our sensitivities? Hell no! He was also robbed of an election in the crime of the century.. Watch 2000 mules if you're not convinced. Yes, Trump brings dramas. Political battles are not pleasant to see. If one can't stomach the battle to save our society you don't belong in the arena. The dems are halfway to their goal of destroying the middle class in this country. Desantis is great, but he would be attacked like Trump was. Will he fight back as ferociously & effectively as Trump? Why take a chance? I would follow Trump to hell & back. You dont punish great leaders by wimping out.

The upheaval is here and it is permanent. Upheaval is their strategy. Stupido. Unless our POTUS beats it back. And what will beating it back look like? It will look like Donald Freaken Trump. Oy vey.

First of all. I did not read the article and will not. It’s just a “get Dems re-elected and hit price on PRESIDENT Trump! And some are falling for it. Trump was the best thing that has happened for this country since the founding fathers and the revolutionary war! He was getting America back on track of being America. And his ego helped him do that job and do it well. All the slams against him he took and fought back. He stood up to the lies and accusations and defended himself and America. Everyday he should remind people of how the election was stolen not only from him but from the citizens if a free country, who believed in the integrity of the elections! Without honesty in government we have no country! And the Dems are proving that fact everyday I am tired of people saying they are not voting for PRESIDENT Trump because he is a whiner. He is not whining. He is reminding everyone of a stolen election and to be aware that it can happen again. No matter who runs! If you think the rinos and the Dems are not plotting now then your head is in the sand. Trump now knows who the swamp people are! He has learned a lot and can handle the mess. As far as DeSantis. He is another true patriot but not ready for President just yet. I hope it’s a Trump/DeSantis ticket. Allow DeSantis to learn from Trump. Don’t vote for PRESIDENT Trump because of his ego. That’s dumb. Your giving the election to the Dems. It’s what the Dems want. It’s PRESIDENT Trumps ego that will help save this country. And, I lived his “mean” tweets. PRESIDENT Trump never called anyone a SOB while standing at the podium with the seal of the President of the United States hanging on it. But Biden did. And that is acceptable? Not in my world!

Do you think DeSantis or anybody else stands a chance if we just "move on " from 2020? I'd love to see a better candidate than Trump, one with sufficient personality power to sway the image followers combined with a fierce dedication to our constitutional founding principles and rule of law. The left and the élite ruling class of uniparty swamp rats have demonstrated that they will do what ever it takes to seize and keep power. The only thing that has held them back is a reluctance to overplay their hand and completely "out" themselves and galvanize the rest of us. In 2016 they underplayed the Russia collusion thing before the election because they thought it was in the bag and there was way too much risk of going full bore. It didn't really gain steam until after the election which became more about 2024 at that point. In 2020 they finally overplayed their hand but by sweeping it under the rug the damage that should have happened by such a brazen reckless third world banana republic coup will get the ultimate get out of jail free card. We can run DeSantis, Paul, Cruz, Michael Rodent, but they are destined to lose if we don't stop another 2020. The character assignation will be proportional to the threat to the swamp and potential benefit to the republic, that's a given.

I voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 and would gladly vote for him again in 2024 if he is a candidate. But I don't believe he should run. There is an excellent potential candidate in Ron DeSantis. He is a solid conservative, has the courage to stand up to all the Democrats and media nonsense, and has proven to be a very competent, outstanding governor in Florida. Exactly what this country needs right now, and he is young enough to maintain that vigor and competence for two full terms. Trump would be in his 80s by the end of his next term. I'm sorry, even Trump would be questionable at that age. In fact, it's time to put an upper age limit on the office of President. This isn't a repudiation of Trump in any way. It's common sense. Use it.

America may be weary of political division, but it is the demonrats who started that fire and poured gasoline on it. We can go back and thank Hellary for her “politics of personal destruction” which started it all. PDT once said that the left was after all conservative and patriotic Americans and he was just standing in their way. They will wage an unwavering attack on any and every Republican no matter who happens to be the nominee. The things that so many people didn’t like about PDT are the very things that I loved about him - he never backed away from a fight, he never pulled his punches and his “mean tweets” were designed to distract the enemedia and the left while he quietly went about keeping his campaign promises. The last thing we need is another Bush type president who sits quietly and never defends himself or his policies. This is war and we need to treat it as such with a take no prisoners leader. I also want revenge for the 2020 fraud. I want him to win so enormously that the left never recovers. I want to see them beaten, bloody and begging for mercy. I can’t wait to vote for him.

FTA: "But the prospect of more upheaval is too much for many Americans." Ummm...they want to: continue to kill defenseless human babies: trans-groom every child, including yours, into a pronoun-intensive fog of sexual dysfunction: give away American jobs to fully underwritten illegal immigrants; destroy the American economy with their war on fossil fuels, supply chain disruptions, the worst inflation in 70 years, and a looming Depression that will make the great one look tame by comparison; continue to mismanage viral pandemics with, literally, heart-stopping gene therapy that not only doesn't work, but kills people; remake American industry by regulating its carbon footprint to suit the completely bogus "science" called AGW; embroil America in yet another foreign war; continue to kill free speech in America by criminalizing legitimate dissent. Until they back off these anti-American priorities, or you cave in and concede every point, the upheaval is here to stay, no matter who is the Republican POTUS candidate in the next election.

There’s a lot of people out there trying to tell us that Trump shouldn’t run. Do they know something we don’t? And what prize boob will the Dems come up with that can beat Trump or any other Republican? Trump and DeSantis can vie for the presidency and we can decide who will be the nominee. Either one is fine with me. What gets me is this talk that Trump makes people cringe. The best thing he did was demand that Washington people actually complete their work in a timely fashion and do it right, instead of screwing off every day. That’s what a CEO does. and that’s the executive we need, whether Trump or anyone else, conservative Republican of course.

"It pains me to say that I have seen and heard all I want of Trump for now, but I thank him profusely for the four years he served America and her people so effectively and so lovingly." This says it all for me. Those who think that Trump could change this time around and stay focused on the issues instead of getting wrapped up in Twitter wars that only debase the office of the presidency and further rile up an already inflamed nation-- Trump is who he is. He ain't gonna change. If anything he is more bitter and combative than ever. In PA he supported a joke of a conservative, Oz, while participating in what amounted to an ad hominem war against Kathy Barnette, a genuine conservative. Despite the nasty and untrue things Trump said about her, she got 24% of the vote. (Oz has apparently won with around 32%, something like that.) In other words, had Trump not undermined Barnette, she most likely would have won, and we in Pennsylvania would have a Senator clearly on the right, as opposed to what Trump has given us, a celebrity nothing burger. If Trump supports DeSantis, who has all of Trump's strengths and virtues and none of his weaknesses, DeSantis will win easily. However misguided, half the country loathed Trump in 2020. Now it is even a bigger percentage. If you want to lose in 2024, support Trump. Make no mistake about that. When even those-- like myself, who voted for him twice-- who were staunch supporters-- are saying "Enough!" you can just imagine what the half who opposed him are thinking and saying now. Trump will lose. DeSantis will win. Take your pick.

Just my hunch, but I don't think Governor Ron is interested in being on a national ticket in 2024. He's doing a terrific job here in FL, he has a young family, and he understands that hitching his star to DJT would be politically treacherous.

There is zero reason why DeSantis should hitch his wagon to Trump’s roller coaster. DeSantis is young and adept enough to run as President. We need young faces. No one was treated more unjustly than Trump and he still gave us his all. But he should not run.

Once and for all: Trump wasn't hated until they Trumped him. DeSantis will be hated too, once they DeSantistize him. Then you're gonna ditch DeSantis too, bc he's "divisive," and cycle thru loser candidates one after another (Dole, Romney, McCain) each of whom will be vilified, claimed "divisive" and tossed.

Let's flashback to 1908...when the GOAT of the day, Teddy Roosevelt, decided not to run for re-election and endorsed his close friend William Howard Taft. TR spent the next four years attacking Taft for not being "progressive" enough. and in 1912 TR ran first as a Republican, but failed to deny Taft renomination. So, he formed a third party. And the winner of the 1912 election was...Woodrow Wilson. By 1916 TR's Progressive party disbanded in favor of the Republicans. By 1917 we were at war, making the world safe for democracy - and the world continues to suffer the consequences. Trump had many virtues and a few faults. And some of these persist. As noted by #9, Trump has no reliable team from which to form a cabinet. In 2025 we would see another lineup like last time, T-Rex, Mad Dog, Bolton, Seb, and the whole cast of Fox All-Stars. He appointed Generalissimo Milley as Chair, JCS. And every one of those named above came with kudos from the "real conservative" peanut gallery. And then let's not overlook his endorsements of Mitt and Lindsey, among others. His greatest failure was his mismanagement of COVIDS, essentially turning the entire situation and his bully pulpit over to Fauci and Birx. Famous for firing people, he let these two carry on unfettered, not to mention signing off on more than $10 TRILLION of COVIDS-related spending, including the ineffective/perhaps dangerous "warp speed" vaccines with mRNA. That was the beginning of our inflation woes further exacerbated by Biden. And since when did we all begin expecting the UNIPARTY and its minions to hold a straight election again? They denied him election once. Those six Republican states can do it again, and will regardless of "voting reforms". FPDT is in the catbird seat. His choice. I hope he chooses wisely. I'll vote for him again in a general election. But someone, perhaps DeSantis, might be the better choice ultimately. #6 also makes a good point, that we are seeing "more and more ad hominem comments on Lucianne." This salon survived the Bushies, McCainiacs, Romneybots...and it will survive the Trumpistas.

It comes to whether one thinks Trump can win. All the vitriol is generated by the Marxists and Never Trumpers who never did like him. Sadly their sceme has worked. If MB Mathews’ opinion was dispositive, Trump wouldn’t have run the first time. If DeSantis took his place he would get the same treatment, like Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, and any conservatie to the right of Mao. Trump deserves it. He has earned it. And we know he fights! If not he we can’t be sure about Ron DeSantis. Look at all the concervative Supreme Court judges and Republican judges that get weak knees and go wobbly on us. Andrew Jackson, Andrew Higgins, and General Grant fight. They were belittled by the media in their day also. That is what counts.

What the author is really asking for is another George W Bush, someone who won't fight back when the Democrats and the media comes for them. No thanks!! Any GOP president that fights for Americans and himself/herself will have constant turmoil, won't be any different for DeSantis.

Having twice voted for Trump for president, I find the oft-cited notion that DeSantis must "wait his turn" or that he musty learn governance at Trump's knee is such a democrat-like notion. Other than being wealthy and a popular culture icon, what did Trump do to "deserve" being elected president in 2016? By 2020, he had a record of policy success, along with a record of misjudging the quality and commitment of his direct appointees within his cabinet and further down in his administration. He also appeared to have a faulty compass with regard to government spending. Unlike Ronald Reagan, a political practitioner and evangelist of conservatism, I see Trump as the consummate populist politician, without conservative ideological grounding. Both Reagan and Trump were/are former democrats; however, Trump identified as a democrat, including embracing democrat policies in 2009, only seven years before being elected as a Republican president. However unpopular of an opinion here, I believe that Trump could learn from DeSantis. Those who believe that Trump is the only politician who can save the country from the democrat depredations, must have slept through the Carter administration and the country's restorative aftermath during the Reagan years. If Trump is the nominee in '24, I'm prepared to vote for him a third time but I'm not writing off DeSantis at this early juncture. I'm also not jumping squarely on the DeSantis-for-president bandwagon at this point, although he intrigues me, much like Jack Kemp did in the '80s and 90s, before he abandoned his former stance on tax cuts vs embracing tax hikes.

And right here on we have a microcosm of what may happen within the Republican Party at the 2024 convention. And if the party is split between the Trump supporters and those who think we should run a younger conservative like deSantis then the democrackpots can run whoever they want off their very short bench (less the obviously demented one) and stand a fair to middling chance of electing him/her/it if we're divided on who we think should be our nominee. I voted for Trump twice. I'd prefer to vote for DeSantis in 2024 if only because we'd have a reliable chance at 8 years with him and 1 or possibly 2 terms out of his VP. Hey, Biden's way too old to be president and by 2028 Trump would be too. I didn't start this thinking I preferred DeSantis to Trump in 2024, but as I try to build a logical construct, I realize that DeSantis is a long-term solution while Trump is a short term solution. (Now someone convince Trump he can best serve the long-term interests of his country if he plays kingmaker in 2022 AND 2024) I started out trying to point out how our division could kill us in 2024 and ended up backing DeSantis. My apologies to the Trump supporters on here, but I think DeSantis (if he is what he seems to be) is our best long-term solution to beating back the deep state and the sickness that is Pelosi/Schumer/The Squad/Swalwell,Waters/Nadler/Biden/Harris/Cori Bush/California Imbeciles/Leftist loons in general.

The fundamental problem with many answers ignores money. Trump governed without lobbyists controlling his decisions. No one else with the exception of Musk could do that. They all need multiplied millions to get elected and therefore become beholden to various groups. Trump didn’t care what the media or anyone else thought and had the liberty to go with his gut. Anyone else will be swallowed by the sludge over time. Remember how great Bush was until he wasn’t?

Trump was cheated. The country was cheated. And on top of all that, I was cheated! That's what really roasts my hide. There can be no bright future if the serial liars, crooked politicians, surrender monkeys, and paid apologists like M.B. Mathews get their way and the perpetrators walk free. "Give me liberty or give me death" a man once said. Fraudulent elections mark the beginning of the end of liberty, our republic, and our future. For all our sakes, Trump must continue the fight with all his strength.

Look how much Trump accomplished, with both parties, the media and the bureaucracy opposing him and undermining him at every turn. More than anyone else ever did or ever could have (including, IMHO, the great Ronald Reagan.) And look how easy it was and how short a time it took to destroy everything he accomplished. What would be different in a second Trump term, with the possible exception of a Trump/DeSantis 12-year run, which would likewise be trashed and undermined. His lasting accomplishment was exposing how worthless and corrupt our federal government and electoral system was and is, both parties. Where that leads, who knows, but it's clear that there will be no peaceful "electoral" solution.

I agree with the article that admits that Trump was the greatest president we've ever had. However unlike the author I never found him to be coarse. LBJ was far cruder but since he was a Democrat he got a pass. Trump was a president that kept all his promises and after the 2020 race was stolen, was unable to follow through on his promise that the best was yet to come. Maybe there are some who don't care that we have become a banana republic during elections but I do and the only reason that I would not Trump to run would be to spare him the vitriol and hate he never deserved. But if he does run, I will vote for him gladly again.

Notorious doxxer and Washington Post “internet culture” columnist Taylor Lorenz was called out for reporting falsehoods Friday by two YouTube influencers who Lorenz mentioned in a hit piece about them. Lorenz claimed she reached out to the pair for comment—which according to them is simply not true. Lorenz was reporting “that content creators” were the winners in the explosive Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial that ended this week in what most people consider a huge win for Depp. Lorenz claimed that by following the trial on their viral YouTube channels, influencers “LegalBytes” host Alyte Mazeika and an anonymous user called ThatUmbrellaGuy made tens of thousands of dollars.

The Democrats have made it plenty clear over the years that they don’t like the Constitution as written. They hate free speech, a free press, religion that is free from government intervention and, most of all, the Second Amendment and its clear recognition of every citizen’s inherent right to bear arms. Unable to change these principles, they opt for imaginary rights (e.g., abortion, same-sex marriage) and dream of packing the Supreme Court to circumvent the intentionally cumbersome amendment process. But they always pay lip service to the Constitution. That is, until Rep. David Cicilline (D. R.I.) spoke openly about his contempt. He is to be praised for his honesty.

A federal grand jury has indicted Peter Navarro, a former Trump White House adviser, on criminal contempt of Congress charges over his refusal to cooperate in the House investigation of the January 6th attack. The indictment comes after the House voted in April to refer Navarro to the Justice Department for failing to comply with a February subpoena from the House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol riot. Navarro was charged with one contempt count for his refusal to appear for a deposition, and another for his refusal to produce documents requested by the committee, despite the subpoena from the January 6 committee.

His every utterance seems calculated to send progressives into a frenzy. He's one of the most prolific political fundraisers in America. His endorsements of other like-minded America First conservative candidates help those beneficiaries pull ahead in crowded primaries. And the worst-kept secret in American politics is that he wants to swap out his Sunshine State address for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as soon as possible. No, the politician is not Donald Trump but rather Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who lately seems bent on executing just about every page of the former president's political playbook—only with a sunnier demeanor, less offensive language and fewer of the personal antics that make Trump so polarizing.
