Was Trump Our Captain Queeg?

Original Article

The Left, the NeverTrump Right, and many independents are tiring of Donald Trump’s recitations of prior, however justified, grievances at the hands of the media, the Democratic Party, the administrative state, and hard-core Left. The conventional wisdom runs that Trump’s whines and victimization recitations reveal deep paranoias, and increasingly to an obsessive degree. We are told that his near neurotic obsessions with the unfairness of his critics are alienating the independent voter, who finds Trump’s strolls down 2020-21 memory lane the same-old, same-old ad nauseam.

It is true that the media and Dems have been absolutely horrific in their treatment of Trump, but it also true that it is possible to frame a guilty man.

Trump was the only conservative who ran for POTUS since Reagan. Vote for conservatives or stay home. And no, Republican is not the same as conservative. Trump 24

VDH seems to have lost his way recently with his own relatively mild case of TDS. He writes, "Trump was certainly reckless in cheering on volatile demonstrations on January 6, 2021." Where is the evidence for this? President Trump urged his followers to be peaceful in exercising their Constitutional rights.

A full read is called for. I think VDH is correct. His summation of the people President Trump brought into the circle to do Americas work is dead on. He gave them all a chance at lofty ideals and they failed him and America. Pence is at the very top of that mud pile.

I always viewed Trump was painted the equivalent of the WWE wrestling villain. Now, everybody boo. The irony is many of the 'bad guys' in wrestling were more popular with the audience than the 'good guys'. Regardless, it's a stage production. So is the vilification of Donald Trump Millions of people fell for it. Don't forget to boo Trump now.

“Vote for conservatives or stay home. And no, Republican is not the same as conservative.” - #2 So, you prefer Biden, Harris or some other liberal commie Dem to any Republican not named Trump. Is that right? Great advice.

This presupposes the picture we are being given of Trump is accurate or objective, even though it is a caricature created by the very swamp media that tried to paralyze him using fake news in general and a russian hoax in particular. Reality filtered through the msm becomes downright surreal, narrative instead of news.

VDH going squishy is concerning. He's been hanging out with the media too much since his retirement from academia. Donald J. Trump is not Captain Queeg. You would think a historian of his stature would recognize a transformative historical figure living in his own time. President Trump is a great man, but he is still a man. He's a man of extremes; in his physique, intellect, humor, foibles, strengths and weaknesses. He loves America with a passion so huge he sacrificed a personal golden life of luxury to save her from sure destruction. He has given his all to Make America Great Again. He has sacrificed the privacy of his home, his family's security and put his personal freedom at risk for every American...even those that hate and despise him. His enemies will do everything in their power to keep him from his rightful presidency. He will not give up. He will not give in. We can not let him stand alone. Our country was founded on the sure belief in God and His Providence. We must return in faithfulness to God. First in our homes; begin daily prayer with your families. Second, return to your churches; invite family and friends to join you. Public, communal worship is important. For the unchurched, there is a faith community out there for you - an ember alone soon looses its glow. Read and meditate on Holy Scripture; pray and fast. First and foremost we are in spiritual warfare; without prayer fortification first, our political efforts will not bare fruit. We live in exciting times. Its the First Week of Advent. Our Savior is Coming! AMDG then MAGA!

It seems protecting the republic, the Best and most moral example of democratic self governance and free markets to the benefit of the dignity and initiative of the individual, guided by God's hand and the manifested values of Judeo Christian western civilization, bought to these shores by those unwilling to bow to the King and the Aristocracy of their homeland, is just too much work. We should stop obsessing about how great it was or how to make it great again. We had a good run, So stop whining.

Naysayers, re-read the article. VDH is both saying that Trump is NOT Captain Queeg, but then neither was Captain Queeg. Personally speaking, President Trump is a bit crude for him and me to ever be the best of buddies. Nevertheless, I will vote for him for president again in a heartbeat. God Bless President Trump.

When Trump talks about 2020, he is a voice for those who tried to vote but were not counted. This is no grief in the eyes of the left, the never trumpers, and independents, but it is to those who thought their votes mattered.

WOW! Mr DH gives us the Must Read of the century!!! Lays it all out bare and omits only one treasonous conspirator: outgoing potus, the demon Oblabber. (Of low muscle tone.) Who personally initiated an investigation against the incoming POTUS by the embedded Justice Dept. on a pretense which he knew to be false. More oily than a barrel of crude, 44 glides right past the BS detector of the electorate as he continues to ooze from The Cape. But I take nothing away from this piece. It is superb. Exactly what we've been waiting for. Thank you Mr. DH. Lstaff: how about tomorrow's Must Read?

Re: #2 - A populist, as a host of Trump supporters have labeled him, is not the same as a conservative either. A populist may favor left-leaning policies on Monday and right leaning policies on Tuesday. Like modern political polling, populists are typically not ideologically consistent as are conservatives and progressives along the political spectrum.

"Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you." (Old 1960s poster that we proudly displayed under our black lights.) If you have a presidential election stolen right out from under you, by dirty democrats, the Supreme Court, congress, the FBI and the intelligence services, that gives you every right to whine. Since nothing has been done and elections are still being stolen, I would say he didn't whine loud enough. What's with the sudden love affair with Mike Pence? There's no way in hell...

What a surprisingly obtuse question from VDH! The man spared us from President Hillary. If he had done nothing else, that alone would be deserving of our gratitude. The fact that he reversed so much of the damage done through Obama, Clinton, and two Bushies, while fighting his own party, the opposition party, and the media who carry their water, is all a testament to his competence, intelligence, and intestinal fortitude. Captain Queeg? More like Captain America.

A conservative site did an unscientific poll about GOP candidates and 2024 last week; DeSantis was at the top almost 2:1 over Trump. After the shock wore off I had to say that while I want Trump back because his track record cries out for a second term, one has to wonder if we also need the obstructionism of the GOPe and the TDS crowd to stymie us when we're up to our gluts in alligators? I don't trust DeSantis as far as I can throw him but if Trump doesn't get out there and give us a vision instead of a rehash of the 2020 larceny then I can see the Dems lined up to help him secure the nomination, just as they have in other places. We've seen that the red wave was nothing more than a old guy with an enlarged prostate

10, I see no difference between a non-conservative Republican and Pelosi, AOC and the rest of the America hating trash. I -only- vote for people I -want- to win. I -never- vote for the lesser evil. You get to the same place, just a little slower. I will -never- vote for the lesser evil. They are still evil and undeserving of my support. My voting for those horrible people you are saying with your vote you want more of what they've already done to this country. I do not. Given a choice between, say, Mike Pence and AOC, I will leave that part of the ballot blank by writing in Mickey Mouse. Thank you, this is great advice... if you want conservatives in office. If you aren't really conservative then go ahead and vote for Pence. That's on you when he does a George Bush and wrecks the country. I will not vote for such a man. Summary: A vote is a positive affirmation of voter's desire for candidate to be in office. I do not desire non-conservatives in office. Therefore I will not vote for non-conservatives no matter what silly meaningless letter is next to their name. I can explain what it means to be a conservative. It's a life philosophy. Can you explain what it means to be a Republican? I can't. It's just an empty word.

Yesterday morning, Resident RINO Mitch McConnell addressed a crowd of reporters; but instead of embracing the role he’s hired to do — advance political conservatism — he took the opportunity to attack President Trump. Funny, I don't recall him, or any other Never Trumpers condemn the following: Obama and all the others who hung around with notorious antisemite, Louis Farrakhan. In 2020, the Anti-Defamation League labeled Farrakhan as the “most popular antisemite in America.” Obama, Biden, and all others who continue to work with and reward Iran as its leaders and its extremists pledge(d) death to the U.S. and Israel.

I’m certain that garden-variety illegal fraud, combined with the legal fraud of ballot harvesting and mail-in voting, went a long way to explain how Americans suffering terribly in a bad economy did not deliver a wipeout to the Dems in the 2022 midterms. I also reserve a great deal of blame for the GOP, which is trying hard to drive MAGA from its ranks and is willing to lose to do so. But one cannot get past the fact that the American population, after 60 years of leftist education, may be incapable of connecting cause and effect. That brainwashing is everywhere

In between watching the scandalous FTX crypto scam unfold and making all the Thanksgiving fixings, I’ve joined Twitter, which I’ve refused to participate in for years. One reason for my about-face on the social media site is that Elon Musk, the new owner, is creating a genuine open forum and he’s actively participating as a commentator in the most amusing way. I prefer the Facebook technical setup but despise the way it (like the former Jack Dorsey-run Twitter) uses it to stifle real debate, regularly in one way or another blocking other than left-wing views and information. In time, if Musk achieves his goal, Facebook may reform itself as well

As a possible rail way strike looms, the U.S. industry braces for impact. One of the biggest rail unions rejected a deal earlier this week failing to approve contracts over concerns about demanding schedules and the lack of paid sick time. Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) is warning American consumers that it is “highly likely” a strike will happen in the midst of the busy holiday season. “I think it’s highly likely,” Hagerty said, adding “I mean, you hit the nail on the head. The union bosses basically forced their union members to buck up and accept this deal just to get them through the…midterm elections.

For many Republicans, the final midterm election results were surprising— especially in the states of Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Based on polling, it looked likely that Kari Lake, Adam Laxalt, and Mehmet Oz would win their contests. I believe that there are only three likely explanations for the unexpected results: late campaign surges, polling error, or aggressive ballot-harvesting. A late surge? Some Republicans are falling for an illogical narrative put forth by Democrats and the mainstream media.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested Tuesday that former President Donald Trump’s dinner last week with an outspoken anti-semite and white supremacist had disqualified him from holding future office.  “First, let me just say that there is no room in the Republican Party for anti-semitism or white supremacy,” McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters on Capitol Hill of the 76-year-old Trump’s Mar-a-Lago meal with Jew-hating hip-hop star Kanye West and white nationalist Nicholas Fuentes. “Anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States,” McConnell added

President Biden's rented Secret Service vehicles burst into flames in a parking lot Monday, just one day after he left his Nantucket vacation. Biden spent Thanksgiving on the ritzy Massachusetts island with his family last week. The Secret Service rented five vehicles from Hertz to carry the president and his family, and all five of them caught fire in the parking lot, according to footage first obtained by the Nantucket Current. Footage shows firefighters spraying down the smoldering remains of one vehicle's engine block. The five vehicles included a Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX80, Ford Expedition, and a Jeep Gladiator.

'There's a lot to do in resolving the rail strike,' Biden said.  'Congress has to act to prevent it. It's not an easy call, but I think we have to do it - the economy's at risk.'

New York - A decade after its last election autopsy, the Republican National Committee is moving forward with a new post-election audit designed to examine the GOP’s underwhelming performance in the recent midterms and the party’s broader struggles in the years since former President Donald Trump took power. The report, which will likely take several months to complete, is expected to explore internal concerns about candidate quality, the lack of a clear governing agenda and the party’s unwillingness to embrace early voting, among other issues. There is some disagreement about the exact focus and scope of the upcoming review, but committee members involved in the planning suggest

The United States Senate voted to enshrine the right to same-sex and interracial marriage into federal law on Tuesday.  The Respect For Marriage Act passed on a 61-36 vote. Eleven Republicans voted with Democrats on the measure. It now heads back to the House of Representatives, where it's likely to pass the Democrat-controlled chamber swiftly enough to head to President Joe Biden's desk before the current Congressional term is over.  Democrat Senator Tammy Baldwin, who helped spearhead the bill, appeared emotional on the chamber floor before the final vote.

Now that the GOP has gained a House majority, Kevin McCarthy has a real opportunity to rise to the occasion. Although it wasn’t the midterm election result McCarthy wanted, by winning the House of Representatives the Republican Party has a seat at the governing table. The 55th speaker of the House is in a position to set policies and priorities in contrast to Joe Biden, and in the process make the case that a Republican belongs back in the White House in 2024. Doing so means that McCarthy and his lieutenants will have to demonstrate they understand the value of playing the long game. Even in a complicated political environment,

Several top conservatives are warning that if House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, the Republican nominee for Speaker of the House, does not win the speakership election on the floor of the House on Jan. 3, 2023, a “doomsday scenario” could emerge where Democrats undercut GOP power. In such a scenario, concerns are rising that so-called moderate—or establishment Republicans—are willing to band together to make a deal with the Democrats to elect a moderate Republican as speaker with Democrat votes in exchange for a House rules change that hands the incoming Democrat minority significant power over how subpoenas can be issued.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden hails unions at almost every turn, often declaring "unions built the middle class" and that his goal is to be "the most pro-union president" in U.S. history. But as he urges Congress to intervene in a labor dispute to avert a freight rail strike before the holidays, the president is facing a backlash from labor allies. Union workers hoped to secure paid sick leave in a final contract, among other assurances, but congressional action pushed by Biden would force some terms they oppose. "The actions speak for themselves. Don't tell me what you are. Show me

CNN This Moring co-host Don Lemon travelled over to CBS and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday to promote the show and insist that “I don’t think we were liberal” when speaking about the pre-Chris Licht era. Colbert asked about changes to the network under Licht, “The word on the street is you guys aren't allowed to be liberal anymore? Is that the case?” (Video) Lemon laughably argued that, “I don't think we ever were liberal.” After a somewhat surprised Colbert replied with a simple “What?,” Lemon doubled down, “Yes, I don't think we ever were liberal.” Not only was CNN liberal, it still is, but trying to get Lemon to expand

New York - New York City Mayor Eric Adams says the NYPD, FDNY, and other city agencies will start forcing homeless people who are determined to be suffering a "mental health crisis" off the streets and out of the subway system. They will be taken to a hospital for evaluation even if they refuse to go on their own. Adams says, "It is appropriate to use this process when a person refuses voluntary assistance and it appears that they are suffering from mental illness and are a danger to themselves due to an inability to meet their basic needs. We believe this is the first time
