Donald Trump's Secret Plan


For well over year now, I have been joking about how Donald Trump could very-well be the ultimate plant: an espionage agent sent in by the Democratic National Committee to infiltrate the GOP as a candidate and do as much damage to that party as is humanly possible to do. The idea of he and Hillary Clinton being in cahoots with one another is not as wild as it might seem on the surface. Could there be some kind of a plot?

Aw, hell, I wasn't serious; it was all a joke. Now, I'm not so sure.
 
Mind you, this is all pure speculation on my part. The only evidence I have that the Donald is purposely out to destroy the Republican Party is his own actions, his own rhetoric. As stated in an earlier post, the man has never been one to score particularly high in the self-awareness department; he has always seemed oblivious to how unintentionally comical he makes himself out to be by his insatiable brashness and arrogance. But the time has come to face this unavoidable, undeniable fact: This is a man that does not was to win this election.
 
I'll admit that my "Democratic conspiracy theory" is a little far fetched. We'll have to wait and see what transpires in the post-inaugural period. If Trump is offered a cabinet post next year by President Clinton, that will be all the proof you need that the fix was in.
 
Another theory I have is that this was all merely an attempt by Trump to "up his brand", so to speak. As an ex-presidential candidate, he would be able to raise the price of his speaking fees two-fold - or possibly more that that even. There is only one way someone running in the Republican primaries these days can possibly secure the nomination, and that is by stomping around this diseased nation saying a lot of dreadfully cruel and stupid things. Once the prize is firmly in place, the nominee usually slithers toward the ideological center. That hasn't happened in this instance. One month after the convention in Cleveland, Trump has yet to alter the extremist calumny that gives the Tea Party mob goose-pimples - and the GOP establishment the dry heaves. He has made statements recently to the effect that he intends to tone things down a bit, but that has yet to happen.

The Donald is still, unabashedly, the Donald.

Which is  good thing, I suppose. What Donald Trump has done to "the party of Abraham Lincoln" (that sentence is getting harder to write by the day) is that he has forced them to face the writing on the wall and seriously ponder the future of conservatism in this country - not the future of the Republican party, mind you - only the future of the conservative movement. The Republicans have no future. Donald Trump has seen to that. He wasn't the cause of that party's self immolation. He was merely the final nail in a coffin that has been slowly closing for over fifty years now. The destruction is complete. The grand old party is over.

My goodness, I'm having so much fun watching this catastrophic political year. How 'bout you?

SUGGESTED LISTENING:

Since this month marks the fiftieth anniversary of the passing of Lenny Bruce, I wanted to share this with you. In February of 1966, less than six months before he died, Lenny was invited to the UCLA law school to give a talk. Some of his critics have dismissed his obsession with the law in the latter part of his career as ponderous and boring. I disagree. No matter what period - or the condition he was in - Lenny was always a fascinating monologist to listen to. A tape of that performance has only recently been unearthed. Here is a link to hear it:

"My goodness, I'm having so much fun watching catastrophic political yea. How 'bout you?"

Yeah, ain't it great to watch an arrogant boorish ass implode the GOP while a corrupt, lying, criminal wretch gets ready to ascend to Obama the messiah's throne? I wonder how many "contributions" the Clinton Foundation will receive during her reign... errr, I mean presidency.

Good God, do you really have such a low regard for what is left of our nation to actually find pleasure in watching these two execreable human beings fight to see who can destroy the remaining institutions of our nation first?

Like my previous comment, I have no illusions that you will publish this, but you sir, are a part of this nation's problem. God bless America. May she rest in peace.

What else does one need to see that T.Paine gets all his info from Beck and Limbaugh?

Hillary might be the most qualified person ever to run for POTUS, and that GALLS conservatives who have been trying to get rid of her for 40 years.

This is election is going to be an EPIC landslide for Dems. People are sick of GOP obstruction and propaganda.

John Oliver suggested last night that Trump could be remembered as a hero by dropping out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzkECkuOMTw

I usually don't believe in conspiracy theories, but it does seem Trump has systematically alienated every demographic a candidate needs to win, especially a Republican candidate, as discussed in the party's 'post mortem' after the 2012 election.

It's almost like he was working from a checklist of people to insult. The funniest comparison I've seen is the one between Trump's campaign and the plot of "The Producers". His campaign song could be "Spring Time for Hitler".

Mr. Mozart, I agree that this will be a huge landslide for Democrats. Like I said, if you are gloating because of this, then you too are a part of the problem. Hillary, even amongst her own party, is not well-liked, is seen as a liar, is horribly self-serving, and a corporate/special interest sell-out. (and that doesn't even take into account her crimes that the FBI refuses to prosecute and myriads of other damning character and integrity flaws she exhibits.)

Please tell me what her ACCOMPLISHMENTS are that make her so well qualified in your opinion, sir? I don't care that she was first lady that acted as a buffer for her husband's scandals while creating her own such as the travel-gate scandal. What leadership role or significant piece of legislation did she sponsor as a U.S. senator? What foreign policy successes did she have as Secretary of State? I bet you cannot give me three legitimate accomplishments, while I can give you many many failures on her watch that are directly tied to her. She has nothing to recommend her and everything to refer her to a grand jury.

And yet you and Mr. Degan are so happy to see the triumph of the Democrat party over country. While I disagree with Sanders, I could at least understand a principled support of him. Championing Hillary or Trump means those that do so are the problem.

I suppose I should suspect this when most leftists get their news from comedians posing as newscasters. Or "newscasters" that are little more than comedians such as Rachel Maddow.

Mr. Mozart, while I don't have much use for Limbaugh, I think that if you spent a week listening to Beck, you would find that he takes a principled stand against people of both parties when wrong, (especially Trump) while championing those that stand for the constitution and the rule of law. I guess that is why the left demeans and demagogues him though... After all, if we were to follow the rule of law, Hillary would be under federal indictment instead of the Democrat candidate for president of the United States of America.

Fist of all, I am not-at-all happy that Hillary is the nominee. As far as I am concerned she is "the evil of two lessers".

Hillary has 8 years as first lady so she knows how the White House operates. Several years as a Senator, so she knows how laws are made and several years as Sec of State so she knows how foreign policy works.

She's also survived(and thrived during)over 30 years of ridiculous partisan witch hunts from the right, NONE of which amounted to anything REAL.

The only people who think she's "evil" are uneducated "dittoheads" who buy the propaganda the GOP has spewed out because they know they have no one close to her qualifications.

CAN YOU TELL US ONE THING THAT CONSERVATIVES HAVE DONE FOR THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS THE LAST 40 YEARS?

Chuckie (Majormajor) Can't seem to come up with anything, but then all he's got are fake names and Commie websites.

Putin's own Benedict Donald has so many secret plans it'll make your head spin. He's gonna take down ISIS "real fast", and eliminate crime in our cities too. You betcha!

TP,

You just can't let go of that "Obama the messiah" thing can you? Righties love to cling to that. May the "Lord and Creator of Trickle Down" Reagan protect you. ;-)

I understand and share much of your outrage.

If we were to follow the rule of law, Obama, Bush, Cheney and their torturer war criminals would be in prison. Funny how moral relativism flourishes in politicians. It must be OK if American politicians do it.

I've stated my objections to Hillary and her husband. The corporatist Clintons are further to the Right than Nixon was, while the Republicans are way off the deep end, un-tethered to reality.

I voted for Clinton in '92 and have refused to vote for either one of them again. I voted for Bernie in the primary because neo-liberalism has failed us as much as the neo-cons have.

Only Bernie spoke the truth on these matters. Thanks largely to corporate media, most Americans have no clue what neo-liberalism even is. That's how much the deck is stacked against sanity, reality and democracy.

One fact is clear. The country thrived, and survived, better under Bill Clinton than under Bush Jr. No need to clutch pearls and surrender to panic if Hillary wins.

However, if Trump wins, then panic may be the last option.

Please tell me what her ACCOMPLISHMENTS are that make her so well qualified in your opinion, sir?

I'd prefer not to quote a pro-Hillary site, but facts are facts. (Except to the far Right, of course, where allegations against opponents are always treated as facts, and science is rejected in favor of corporate PR.)

From Correct the Record:

Hillary Clinton was the first New Yorker to serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee and made veterans a main focus. She introduced the Heroes at Home Act in 2006 and 2007 to help family members care for those with Traumatic Brain Injury. She also worked to increase the military survivor benefit from $12,000 to $100,000, and cosponsored the Support for Injured Servicemembers Act to extend benefits provided under the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Hillary stepped up for New York in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, fighting hard to secure funds for medical assessment, referrals and outreach for 9/11 rescue and recovery workers, and volunteers.

One of Hillary’s Senate bills to distribute flu vaccines more efficiently inspired provisions of a law promoting the production and stockpiling of vaccines to improve our response to public health emergencies.


I have to wonder, what were the foreign policy successes under Bush when you voted to re-elect him? Any come to mind? Remember al-Qaeda in Iraq became ISIS. That would make them Bush's Babies, not Obama's.

The Republican candidate is telling lies far more false and dangerous than anything from Hillary. Trump has been featured in ISIS propaganda videos and his lies give aid and comfort to our enemies.

And are you aware that secretaries of state don’t control U.S. foreign policy? They serve the president's agenda.

Let's allow for a moment that your criminal charges against Hillary are founded in fact.

So tell us please, what qualifies Republicans to lead the country if they failed to bring either of the Clintons down after a 24 year campaign?

How does that make them more competent than the Clintons?

"Hillary has 8 years as first lady so she knows how the White House operates"

So do the White House maids, butlers and cooks.

"Several years as a Senator, so she knows how laws are made"

In 8 years as Senator she sponsored three bills:

S. 1241: A bill to establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site in the State of New York. Bush signed the bill Dec. 3, 2004.

S. 3613: A bill to name a post office the "Major George Quamo Post Office Building." Bush signed the bill Oct. 6, 2006.

S. 3145: A bill to designate a highway in New York as the Timothy J. Russert highway. Bush signed the bill July 23, 2008.
Lot's of heavy lifting for ole Hillary

Te rest of Mozart's post is pure drivel and overlooks, for obvious reasons, her known lies, of which this is the latest to become know.

Too bad the deceptions and moral relativism of the far Right allows them to ignore the truth.

The hate-filled fascist far Right must either lie or parrot their propagandists.

Major Chuck proves this TWICE in one comment.

How do they "make America great again" based on lies? They can't. They won't. Look what happened to us the last time we put a Republican in the White House.

9-11, invasion of Iraq based on lies, rise of ISIS, financial crisis and the Great Bush Recession.

Vote Republican. Trump will "Make America Great Again". Only rubes, dupes, racists and fascists believe their crap.

The evidence that shows close ties between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department proves Hillary Clinton lied during her confirmation hearing in 2009, according to ABC News. The network's Brian Ross said Tuesday morning Clinton vowed not to grant special access to foundation donors if she earned the confirmation to serve in the Obama administration. YAHOO

Many Donors to Clinton Foundation Met With Her at State
By stephen braun and eileen sullivan, associated press (AP)

At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press.

The 154 did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives.

Memo undercuts Hillary story on controversial Russian uranium deal, Clinton foundation by Raphael Williams

Interesting how Dave can't give Hillary a ringing endorsement or defend her, he can only do what he has always done;
YAD YAD YAD YAD

Attack, slime, lie, defame anyone or any thing that points out the short comings of his liberal candidate and socialist failures. It's all he's got it's all he ever has had.

ijr.com/2015/12/503111-here-are-the-3-bills-hillary-clinton-sponsored-that-became-law-while-u-s-senator/

Here are THE 3 Bills Hillary Clinton Sponsored That Became Law While US Senator. During an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer in September, Hillary Clinton was unable to name her “number one accomplishment” as Secretary of State.

What exactly were Hillary’s accomplishments as a U.S. Senator?
As documented by Congress.gov, of the 713 pieces of legislation she sponsored or co-sponsored during her 8-year senate career, only three (3) pieces of legislation that she sponsored became law.

Go ahead vote for the Clinton Crime Foundation, but do so with your eyes wide open to what you are voting for, not what you THINK you are voting against.

Amazing, I site sources liberal socialist Dave spews his same old stuff " All hate, ignorance and Projection. No facts."

What is Dave so afraid of, the truth? Tell us Dave, are African Americans better off today that 8 years ago? Funny how Hillary doesn't seem to think so. She isn't running on "8 more years" is she?

Why is Hillary given a pass for saying awful things about our first black President?

www.huffingtonpost.com/james-rucker/can-black-people-trust-hillary_b_9312004.html

Yet Dave who has said that Republicans, conservatives and the Tea Party are racists, defends Hillary!
Only one reason for that, Dave must be a liberal racist since he doesn't call her and her supporters out for what she has said.

Dave over looks or "can't recall" the Clinton friends from the past.

Webb Hubbell was forced to plead guilty to stealing at least $394,000 from his Arkansas law partners and more than a dozen clients, including the U.S. government. He went to prison.

Hassan Nemazzee served as a Hillary Clinton's national finance director during her2008 presidential bid, bundling many donations for her campaign. He also was a foreign policy adviser and helped raise money for Bill Clinton's legal defense fund and his private foundation.
But in 2010, he pleaded guilty to stealing hundreds of millions of dollars to buy property in New York, and to donate to charities and political campaigns like Mrs. Clinton's. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Johnny Chung a businessman who admitted in the late 1990s that he funneled illegal donations to the Democratic Party and Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign.

Norman Hsu was one of Hillary Clinton's top fund-raising bundlers during her 2008 campaign and a Clinton Foundation donor until it was revealed he was a fugitive in an old California fraud case. He was eventually prosecuted and sentenced to federal prison for what federal authorities said was a Ponzi scheme that bilked everyday Americans of millions of dollars.

Sandy Berger was a close foreign policy adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton and eventual White House National Security Adviser. In 2003, he pleaded guilty to trying to sneak classified
13 of 23 records out of the National Archives in his socks in connection with the post-Sept. 11 terrorism investigations. He hid them at a construction site in Washington D.C.


What difference does it make now, right Dave?

Nothing has changed, he's is still as much a disciple of Saul Alinsky as is Hillary.

Of course if Dave follows his normal path he will dismiss this source, or belittle it. Just like Alinsky instructed bith he and Hillary.

Next will be claims that the GOP, Trump and Conservatives are racists, so typical,so predictable so unfounded. But you you see, that is all he and others like him have to offer. Their God of Big Government will run out of

I got a question for you Dave, not that I expect you to answer,
What is liberty?

 
At 2:04 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

Major Chuck,

You were dishonest is saying Hillary only sponsored 3 bills. In fact she co-sponsored many more. Your statement fails to convey that truth.

In 8 years as Senator she sponsored three bills:

An honest person would say that she sponsored these 3 bills that became law.

S. 1241: A bill to establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site in the State of New York. Bush signed the bill Dec. 3, 2004.
S. 3613: A bill to name a post office the "Major George Quamo Post Office Building." Bush signed the bill Oct. 6, 2006.
S. 3145: A bill to designate a highway in New York as the Timothy J. Russert highway. Bush signed the bill July 23, 2008.

You double downed on your lie with:

What exactly were Hillary’s accomplishments as a U.S. Senator?
As documented by Congress.gov, of the 713 pieces of legislation she sponsored or co-sponsored during her 8-year senate career, only three (3) pieces of legislation that she sponsored became law.


Only a dishonest person would suggest that is “exactly” all she did as a senator. There were 74 bills that became law that Clinton co-sponsored. This proves facts are “heavy lifting” for Republicans.

Now for the outright lie:

ABC News: Hillary Lied About Donor Access During 2009 Confirmation Hearing
The evidence that shows close ties between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department proves Hillary Clinton lied during her confirmation hearing in 2009, according to ABC News.


As I stated, this was copy and pasted from Newsmax, just like ol’ Chuck would do with all his “facts”.

Here’s a deal: I’ll tell you what liberty is if you tell me what truth is.

Example: “The truth is I posted under the name Chuck Morre and other identities.”

Bonus deal: I’ll tell you what liberty is if you can go three posts without demonizing liberals or other dishonest and false claims.

 
At 3:05 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...


So Chuck,

Thanks for Hillary’s thesis. Did you read it?

If so, please tell us how you reacted to these passages:

What does the Radical want? He wants a world in which the worth of the individual is recognized...a world based on the morality of mankind...The Radical believes that all peoples should have a high standard of food, housing, and health...The Radical places human rights far above property rights. He is for universal, free public education and recognizes this as fundamental to the democratic way of life...Democracy to him is working from the bottom up...The Radical believes completely in real equality of opportunity for all peoples regardless of race, color, or creed. – Alinsky

If the ideals Alinsky espouses were actualized, the result would be social revolution. Ironically, this is not a disjunctive projection if considered in the tradition of Western democratic theory. In the first chapter it was pointed out that Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such, he has been feared - just as Eugene Debs or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths -- democracy. - Hillary Rodham


Hillary was correct about the fear the elites and your Party have for Alinsky, and democracy itself. Perhaps you can enlighten us by presenting your objections to communities organizing to address their needs and registering people to vote?

Next will be claims that the GOP, Trump and Conservatives are racists, so typical, so predictable so unfounded.

Heaven forbid imposing additional voter registration restrictions and poll access for minorities is seen as racist, Heaven forbid saying a judge’s Mexican heritage disqualifies him from the bench.

Racists and bigots have no sense or insight of their own racism and bigotry. Even the Klan will insist they are “not racists”.

Courts are finally determining that Republican vote suppression is targeted on black communities. Unfounded?

“Not racist”. No sir, amirite?
