Purveyor of Truth
This weblog has decidedly not been an HRC supporter. The reasons really don't matter at this point because the greatest threat our democratic republic currently faces is Donald J. Trump.
Our nation has bad some poor presidents during it's history, but never has it faced the possibility of a narcissistic nativist/nationalist with an agenda any xenophobe would be proud to sport as their own.
The single most important task for All True Patriots is to stop Trump from getting within a mile radius of the Oval Office. So, to that end this weblog commits itself for the next five months. Our nation can ill afford to have the civil liberties so many have fought so hard for to be rolled back into the dark ages of American history.
Following is an article written by a Montana patriot that expresses well the concerns millions of decent law abiding patriotic Americans have about Trump. Trump, The Dangerous Demagogue, must be stopped..
Your Turn: Donald Trump is a dangerous demagogue
I am writing today to urge the decent, responsible voters of Montana to not support Donald Trump for president this November. This presumptive nominee for president has a history of denigrating political opponents, railing against the press, taunting women with misogynistic comments, as well as making jokes about disabled Americans. On July 11, 2015 Trump said the following about Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.: "He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured." Such complete disrespect for a sitting U.S. senator, war hero, and a captured POW was an affront to anyone who says they support our military veterans. However, this comment only made him more popular with Republican primary voters.
The most reprehensible thing about Donald Trump to me is his implicit support from white supremacists. William Johnson was recently selected by the Donald Trump campaign to be one of the 169 delegates for the state of Iowa at the Republican National Convention. Johnson is the head of the white supremacist “American Freedom Party (AFP).” He paid for a series of robocalls and radio time in Iowa and Utah in support of Trump's candidacy. His robocalls that went out to many Iowa voters stated: "The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called 'racist.'”
In an interview with CNN on May 11, Johnson was quoted saying: “For many, many years, when I would say these things, other white people would call me names: ‘Oh, you’re a hatemonger, you’re a Nazi, you’re like Hitler.’” “Now they come in and say, ‘Oh, you’re like Donald Trump.’”
It was only until earlier this week, that it was discovered that Mr. Trump’s campaign had hired him to be a delegate for his candidacy at the Republic National Convention. After media scrutiny, the campaign has rescinded his selection as a delegate, stating his selection was due to a “database error.” In addition to support from Johnson, Trump has also been supported by David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Klu Klux Klan.
Donald Trump is a dangerous demagogue who flirts with white supremacists. The reason why he is their candidate is because the interests of white supremacists coincide with those of Donald Trump. They both support forced deportation of 11 million undocumented immigrants, as well as building a border wall with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration from Central and Latin America.
Recent polling shows Donald J. Trump is closing the gap and pulling ahead of HRC, something worth noting and a trend all reasonable and thoughtful Americans should fight to reverse.
The latest national ABC News/Washington Post poll has Donald Trump in the tightest race yet with Hillary Clinton in the probable matchup between the two likely presidential nominees.
Forty-six percent of respondents favor Trump over Clinton versus 44 percent who prefer a Clinton presidency. Even though Trump's lead is still within the margin of error, it is notable.
Trump’s enhanced competitiveness reflects consolidation in his support since his primary opponents dropped out, and it comes despite significant challenges to his candidacy.
Fifty-eight percent of Americans call him unqualified to be president; 60 percent see him unfavorably overall; 76 percent think he doesn’t show enough respect for those he disagrees with; and 64 percent say he should release his tax returns -- with most feeling strongly about it.
In the last ABC News/Washington Post poll from March 3, Clinton was leading with 50 percent support versus Trump's 41 percent.
Clinton leads among women, non-white voters, college graduates and voters between the age of 18 and 39 years old. By contrast, Trump leads with men, white voters, voters without a college degree and all voters over 40 years old.
Trump has the lowest favorability rating of all three remaining candidates (37 percent) and the highest unfavorability rating (60 percent).
BTW, did I mention Trump is an NRA lackey?
