Donald Trump is running for president as an American Nationalist. The elites spit that out as if it was something distasteful. As an American, there is an appeal to having somebody in charge who has an “America first” philosophy. The policy wonks and the Washington establishment are Internationalists and are unhappy that somebody who differs with them so sharply on issues such as trade imbalance would be doing well with voters. Thus the hue and cry that better to leave the Party than to vote for Trump (if you’re one of the well cared for elites).
Trump is well traveled, has experience building commercial enterprises worldwide, and is not an isolationist but his rhetoric is clearly that America has been getting screwed. Which we have.
Other candidates talk a good game but you need to take a step back and see who owns them/pays them/supports them (however your conscience lets you slice it). Yes, they’re all Internationalists. Drill down yourself. Tell me what you see.
I don’t know whether Trump will or won’t be a good president and neither does anyone else. However, we need an American president, for a change. Obama clearly is not. Neither is Hillary Clinton/John Kerry. Sanders is a wing nut.
Thoughts on National Healthcare
The problem for the states is that they can invite or discourage population movement by what they offer or don’t offer. But it’s up to them, not the federal government.
The pantsuited demon now knows that there has been a grand jury convened and that they are hearing testimony. Soon — within a few weeks, the FBI will start to interview her inner circle, all of whom have criminal exposure. They will all have lawyers and the lawyers will advise their clients NOT TO TALK (lawyer-up). DOJ will have to decide whether to offer them immunity and compel their testimony under penalty of perjury or to indict them. As the dominoes begin to fall the pressure on Hillary to “lawyer-up” will become intense. More intense because she’s on the campaign trail and a feeding frenzy in the national media (even MSNBC) will commence.
Hillary Clinton’s lawyers will advise her NOT to talk to the FBI. She will say that she can explain everything. But either way, she’s cooked. I spent a healthy piece of my career doing political corruption investigations very successfully and that’s how it always goes. It’s not really rocket science because she did it, and it’s a crime.
So does she who would be queen obstruct an investigation into a criminal conspiracy in which she was the lead conspirator? And if the President and the Party interferes or obstructs, do they run the risk of circling the toilet bowl with her?
The Republicans know this, and it terrifies them because the Republican elite would be much more comfortable Hillary in charge than somebody like Trump, who would likely gore their ox too. This is why you see such frenetic anger and fear inside the Beltway at the moment.
