The Paradox of the Trump: Grass Root Americans Want Him-- The Republican Party Does Not!
For years, I have urged the Republican Party [whatever remains of it] to seek a viable presidential candidate who was a businessman and possessed charisma. Instead, they chose Mitt Romney whom I thought was not electable. He lost for many reasons. Yes, he was an attractive man but without any true grit and a questionable understanding of the working American public-- once he had deigned to descend from the anoxic heights of wealth and privilege. Now, we Republicans, have a candidate whose very personality is the gravitas of his future performance in the White House—bombastic, self-assured, provocative, and exceedingly accomplished in manners of business.
Trump is an American writ large: arrogant, industrious, risk-taking, entrepreneurial….. and….a Presbyterian Christian [the basis of our country’s moral foundations]. Despite an uncanny, visceral connection with us, the grassroots supporters, he is deemed unfavorable by the official mainstay Republicans; as well as, overseas gamblers. I’ve read that Marco Rubio has been unofficially designated by some wagerers abroad to become the Republican nominee for the 2016 presidential.
Of course, I disagree. I think that this determination will mark the final end of the GOP. To me, Marco Rubio, is a younger version of a tragically flawed John McCain; whose nomination was a self-destructive Republican initiative bereft of any other viable candidates. Neither the man nor the narrative were convincing, forget about truthful. Now, the mainstay Republicans, once again, clumsily anointed another disaster-in-the-making: Jeb! Bush. He is an entitled opportunist of little, or no merit.
As I predicted half-a-year ago, he would spiral into a cauldron of ineptness and financial excess. He was, like his brother and father, a clone of past criminal behaviors and unintelligible, contradictory mutterings. Jeb!, like the GOP, failed again with awesome predictability.
In contrast, the recent tour de force by Hillary Clinton in front of another Republican fiasco will guarantee her the nomination for the Democratic Party. She deserves it! Yes, she is morally corrupted but who isn’t?
Let’s remember that almost all presidential elections are rife with miscreant behaviors. For example, George H.W. Bush’s ascendency into the White House was abetted by ex-NH Governor, John Sununu; whose expertise with electronics and voting machines [he was a MIT alumnus] certainly made the difference for a presidential candidate who had no capacity whatsoever to act gregarious or even connect emotionally to the everyday American. Similarly, George W. Bush’s questionable election to the White House was abetted by former Florida Governor Jeb! Bush’s literal “hanky-panky”[mistress] with the attractive Katherine Harris who had to determine the “Florida election recount”. Then she just mysteriously disappeared from public view.
Similarly, Bill Clinton’s non-predictable ascendancy to the White House was not determined by the polls, initially. Instead, he had stolen the election abetted by the illicit practices and money from China; Sam Walton; as well as, the notoriously corrupt Arkansas political machine. That state was riddled with corruption over a fifty year time line starting with the Mafia’s involvement in Hope, Arkansas [1930’s]; then, spiraling all the way up to the completely illegal CIA- infused- cocaine drops in Mena, Arkansas, circa the 1980-90’s. All of this chicanery was white-washed by the future Deputy Secretary of State, Time magazine’s Editor-in-chief [and Bill’s roommate at Oxford University]—Strobe Talbot.
Next, out of nowhere, we, Americans, were delivered a completely unknown Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama for the presidency. A blank, unavailable background delineated this man without a history of accomplishments or achievements. Only a few ‘privileged’ individuals knew who or what he was and why he would not be more than the first African-American President. His pedigree was vetted by the notorious CIA clandestine services; along with the former “Chicago Mob”[Al Capone] family—the Pritzkers [Hyatt Hotel, Continental Airlines]. I think by now, dear readers, you are getting the idea that the key ingredient to winning a presidential election is what Joe Kennedy, father of the ‘assassinated John Kennedy’, knew all too well –buy, steal, or co-opt the votes –by any means possible.
For the present time, Marco Rubio whose association with Norman Braman [old Philadelphia/Miami Jewish gangster] and the Cuban Mafia [Rubio’s relatives were involved in drug trafficking] will not be sufficient to make him, the Rubio, the next presidential contender.
Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the Seven Day Adventists Church; as well as, a distinguished physician from John Hopkins Medical School, will not have the criminal gravitas to carry him beyond the initial beauty contest in front of the ‘Christian Evangelicals’ [who are not the majority voters in this country].
That, of course, leaves Donald Trump. I can say with some authority that not only will he be able to garner the election votes necessary to win but as he has said repeatedly-- ‘he knows some very effective people; but they may not be very nice people, who can help America’. From my point of view, having grown up in the crime-ridden streets of NYC, I understand Trump’s message. He will get the necessary support from all the unions and racketeers who have been involved in the construction and running of his successful hotels, resorts, and casinos. The aforementioned Trump statement is a simple warning to those who many see the “JFK”-outing as a possible route to the WH [namely Clintons and Bush] that it will not happen with Trump.
You see crime really does pay when someone wants to win the Presidency. So, one of two things will happen. Either Trump will be the next nominee for the Republican Party; or, the party will mysteriously evaporate into an ether of self-neglect and self-abuse—never to be seen again.
As for Hillary, she will keep on chugging through all of her adversities and barring the presence of Trump, she will win the 2016 presidential election. It’s really up to the American people and the absence of a defunct, ossified Republican establishment in order to garner a successful election in 2016.
The message to the republican party as well as the overseas gamblers is quite clear—Don’t Mess With Trump!
