Trump: Raise Taxes

By Hunter Wallace

Trump is going full nationalist on the GOP … deport all the illegals, curb legal immigration, but keep Medicare and Social Security, end disastrous free trade deals, and raise taxes on the rich:

“This has gone on long enough. All that anyone can talk about right now is how Republican voters are itching for someone to “stand and fight,” “speak his mind,” and “tell it like it is.” All right then, here goes.

Donald Trump is not a conservative, and it’s beyond time every Republican knows it. This MSNBC caricature of the GOP incarnate is getting heaps of praise from frustrated conservative base voters and unfortunately too much airtime from conservative political pundits because he evidently “tells it like it is.” …

He called the Club for Growth a “pack of thieves”:

“NASHVILLE, Tennessee–In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, GOP front runner Donald Trump is firing back at the Club for Growth.

“They’re a pack of thieves,” Trump told Breitbart News as he was leaving Nashville’s Rocketown facility. He had just finished delivering a high-energy speech to an overflow crowd of more than 1,000 people. …

“They [the Club for Growth] came to my office looking for money. I turned them down. That’s why they’re after me,” Trump told Breitbart News.

Earlier in the week, the Club for Growth attacked Trump for his proposal to penalize Ford Motor Company for putting a car manufacturing plant in Mexico rather than Tennessee.

“Donald Trump’s threat to impose new taxes on U.S. car companies will hurt the American economy and cost more American jobs,” David McIntosh, President of the Club for Growth, said in a statement.

“It should thrill liberals and Democrats everywhere that Trump wants to create new taxes and start a trade war to force American companies to work where he demands,” McIntosh added.”

Trump as the heir to Pat Buchanan:

“Today, that may have changed. The similarities between the Buchanan and Trump agendas are pretty clear: Both are harsh critics of free trade, both staunchly oppose illegal immigration, both spoke out against the Iraq War and find themselves at odds with the party’s hawks. They each wear accusations of racism, xenophobia, and hatred as a badge of honor for bravery against the forces of political correctness. And they share a certain style: blunt talk, raised voices, jabbed fingers, and pounded podiums. …

It’s not surprising, then, that Buchanan sees Trump’s rise as sweet revenge on a Republican establishment that wrote him off as a political liability and a hatemonger.”

I’ve followed Pat Buchanan for 14 years. He inspired my political awakening. More here on the lie that we are “Far Right”:

“Two decades ago, in the spring of 1996, Newsweek magazine described a group of voters it called the “radical middle.” Formerly known as the Silent Majority, then the Reagan Democrats, these voters had supported Ross Perot in 1992, and were hoping the Texas billionaire would run again. Voters in the radical middle, Newsweek wrote, “see the traditional political system itself as the country’s chief problem.”

The radical middle is attracted to populists, outsiders, businessmen such as Perot and Lee Iacocca who have never held office, and to anyone, according to Newsweek, who is the “tribune of anti-insider discontent. …

Our political commentary is confused because it conceives of the Republican Party as a top-down entity. It’s not. There are two Republican parties, an elite party of the corporate upper crust and meritocratic winners that sits atop a mass party of whites without college degrees whose world-views and experiences and ambitions could not be more different from their social and economic betters. The former party enjoys the votes of the latter one, but those votes are not guaranteed. What so worries the GOP about Donald Trump is that he, like Ross Perot, has the resources and ego to rend the two parties apart. If history repeats itself, it will be because the Republican elite was so preoccupied with its own economic and ideological commitments that it failed to pay attention the needs and desires of millions of its voters. So the demagogue rises. The party splits. And the Clintons win.”

The truth is that the GOP’s economic agenda is the real loser and albatross that repels White voters, particularly in the Rust Belt, and now that Trump is running and can cut out the donor class altogether, he is free to dump their policy agenda and focus on popular reforms.

Moral of the story: it was the donor class, their money, and their ability to purchase puppets that was the real roadblock all along.

  1. Like I said, every time someone bitches about Trump not being a loyal Republican or him not being a “true conservative,” (whatever “true conservative” is supposed to mean anymore), they’re giving him an in-kind campaign contribution.

    If Nazi Week, Traitor Week, Brutus Week or Tinfoil Week don’t work, I fully expect the last chance hail mary desperation from the RINOs/Cucks/Conservatism Inc will be:

  2. In reality Liberal Democracy is the facade behind which Plutocracy reigns and it is Plutocracy and free trade that empowers globalism.I notice the grandson of Jacob Schiff, CEO of Kuhn and Loeb a banking firm that helped finance the Communist revolution, is some financial bigwig on all the financial networks.

  3. We need all sorts of populist, nationalists running for offices beside the US presidency.

    US Senate is pretty much fixed, almost impossible to defeat and incumbents – US Congress, State houses, sherif like AZ Sherif Joe Arpaio – yes, absolutely.

  4. Returning to the metaphor of the “Body Politic” wherein every individual citizen is a cell thereof, the economy is the circulatory system of the Body Politic. In a healthy real person, the circulatory system is closed to the outside. When it is open to the outside, that is bleeding, whether one has merely cutoneself whilst shaving, been ripped open by a catastrophe, or — here we venture into the realm of mythology — attacked by a vampire.

    Admitting a horde of non- or anti-assimilable aliens is comparable to transfusing a real Rh+ person with Rh- blood. Medical personnel can better describe the results of that.

  5. Hold everything, the Republican establishment has a whiz bang new plan to take down Trump:

    It’s no secret the Republican establishment is unnerved by Donald Trump and his lead in national and key state polls. And now, after weeks of assuming his support would be fleeting, there is a debate about how to take aim at Trump — and just who should finance such an effort. CNN’s Maeve Reston noted that most GOP strategists see risks in having the attacks come from the other candidates or their directly affiliated super PACs. So, she reports, there is conversation about what other group might raise money for anti-Trump TV ads. “There are a lot of donors out there who see it as much too dangerous, obviously, for the candidates, or their allied super PACs, to go after Trump,” said Reston. “So they’re looking to more establishment PACs to potentially take him down in post-Labor Day ads.”

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/30/politics/ip-obama-trump-jeb–romney/

    Trump has nothing to worry about. Why not? Because look who is doing this: The Republican establishment, who can’t keep a two car parade straight. The same group of people who think the way to take down Obama is to launch a full frontal assault on his “anti-Semitism.” However, it should be a good popcorn-grab opportunity to see what they’re going to try; we know that Trump will rise with each media buy.

    Let me put it to you this way: Would John Dillinger have broken a bead of sweat if he knew the Keystone Cops were out to apprehend him?

  6. “Hedge fund guys need to pay up”

    At bottom, I see, you’re just another white punk, resentful of the prosperous. Whites: a resentment-ridden race who were easily manipulated to extinction by the Jews. That’ll be the one-sentence encyclopedia entry about you–if you’ll be remembered enough to merit even that.

  7. For every one “conservative purist” that won’t vote for Trump because of this, he’ll gain five new working-middle class blue collar whites from crucial swing states. If I’m right, then Jack Ryan will need to do a victory lap, because he’s the one who has been telling us that doctrinare economic right-libertarianism has been nothing but a political millstone for the right.

    I hardly think eliminating the carried interest loophole is going to wreck the economy, nor is it the result of some fit of pent up resentfulness and jealous rage on the part of supposed losers

  8. “… nor is it the result of some fit of pent up resentfulness and jealous rage on the part of supposed losers”

    Of course it is.

  9. When I was living in Virginia, we used to sit around, drink a few beers, and joke about starting a troll blog called “Double Taxes.” Why on earth should we want to lower taxes for Zuckerberg, Adelson, Bloomberg, Bill Gates, etc?

  10. According to David Weigel, who has been following Rand Paul across the country, Trump is the second or third choice of virtually everyone in the crowds he attracts. This just goes to show that libertarianism is a loser that has no real constituency.

  11. Give em what they want!

    Oppose filthy rich, lazy, selfish, unpatriotic rich people who shun honest labor like Dracula shuns sun light.

    Get to know some Teamsters Union folks and encourage them to organize the non union workers at Sheldon Adelson’s Vegas casinos.

    Since there is no jail space to house all the illegal alien criminals, set up tents and port o poddies (don’t clean them) at Augusta National country club type golf courses.

    Rich people in our country must prove that they are on our side that they do support the right of our people to exist in North America – if they do not, than their wealth and privilege should be and will be taken away from them.

    What Jesus Christ say about rich people?

    We feel the same.

  12. Trump has lost Stephen Moore, Larry Kudlow, and the open borders, free traders at the Wall Street Journal … Heaven’s no, what will he do now?

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonkblog/wp/2015/08/31/trump-upends-gop-message-on-economy/

    “This is a very dangerous moment, I think, for the Republican Party,” said Stephen Moore, a conservative economist and co-founder of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, which has been meeting with candidates to urge them to adopt low-tax, low-regulation policies to grow the economy.

    “What Trump is saying about trade and immigration is a political and economic disaster,” Moore said. “He’s almost now making it cool and acceptable to be nativist on immigration and protectionist on trade. That’s destroying a lot of the progress we’ve made as a party in the last 30 years.”

  13. “What [did] Jesus Christ say about rich people? We feel the same.”

    That’s undoubtedly why Jesus Christ said it. He was just another pandering Jew politician.

  14. “What Trump is saying about trade and immigration is a political and economic disaster,” Moore said. “He’s almost now making it cool and acceptable to be nativist on immigration and protectionist on trade. That’s destroying a lot of the progress we’ve made as a party in the last 30 years.”

    30 years ago was 1985, after Reagan’s 1984 49 state landslide. 1984 was the last time the Republican candidate for President won HI, MA, NY, OR, WA, RI, WI, those states have been blue ever since. 1988, which Lee Atwater basically turned into Reagan’s third election, was the last time the red team won VT, ME, CT, NJ, DE, MD, PA, MI, IL, CA. That’s 17 states which currently have 229 electoral college votes, 43% of all possible.

    I wonder if that “progress” that Moore is blubbering about has anything to do with that.

    I respond:

    Gee, according to conventional wisdom, once the non-Trumps drop out, their people will fall behind other non-Trumps still in the race, because obviously, everyone not supporting Trump right now must hate his guts.

    The problem in this case is that these days, Rand Paul can barely draw flies. So, when he drops out, nobody will really notice or care.

  16. “He’s almost now making it cool and acceptable to be nativist on immigration and protectionist on trade.”

    What is nativism?

    nativism. ‘the policy of protecting the interests of native inhabitants against those of immigrants. the policy or practice of preserving or reviving an indigenous culture.’

    ‘Nativism is the political position of demanding a favored status for certain established inhabitants of a nation as compared to claims of newcomers or immigrants.’

    NATIVISM. ‘1. : a policy of favoring native inhabitants as opposed to immigrants. : the revival or perpetuation of an indigenous culture especially in opposition to acculturation.’

    Interesting to note that nativism is now a dirty word when it is used to benefit and protect Whites anywhere on this planet. When applied to the interests of blacks, browns, yellows and reds it is sacrosanct.

  17. While I dislike Mr. Bonaccorsi’s tone in this thread and would join in with most everyone else in nodding along to Trump’s proposed plan to tax the super-rich, I do think it’s important that the pro-white struggle doesn’t become a classist one, especially since class/wealth/standard of living is really the only thing White people, as a group, still have over others in this country, and it’s a thing worth having and holding on to. Nice, wealthy neighborhoods are almost entirely White throughout the United States. If you play most of your golf at private clubs you never have to worry about dealing with non-Whites, unless they’re shining your shoes or preparing your food. Essentially, you can always self-segregate with money. Go stay at some rathole motel and you get what you get, go stay at a luxury hotel and you’re surrounded by well-dressed Whites. I would prefer that the former area didn’t exist at all, but as a White American I absolutely demand that the latter area continues to exist. White wealth/privilege/advantage is very real, and thank God for it. It is our FRIEND, remember that (as the leftist Jew most certainly does).

    The rich, country club Whites that make nigger jokes but are too concerned with their material well-being to make any waves and possibly be branded “racist”, “homophobe”, etc.– should not and must not be viewed as an enemy by the pro-White “movement”. Oftentimes, though the working class would be loath to admit it, the best and brightest of our race happen to be the most successful in every facet of life, including financially (and I’m not referring to myself– believe me, I’m no millionaire). We should be happy for those people and wish the same for ourselves and our offspring. Bitterness and self-hatred have been hallmarks of Jewry for hundreds of years, but fortunately the majority of Whites aren’t afflicted with these evils, and it’s vital that the emerging American pro-White movement stays free of that sort of thing.

    Lately I’ve seen some promotion of socialism in pro-White circles and frank discussion of “the rich” as “the enemy”, and I think it’s important to remember that, by and large, Whites still possess the wealth in this country. Redistribution of wealth is an absolute necessity and a cornerstone goal for those whose ultimate plan is the destruction/dissolution of White Christian civilization.

    White men succeed. White men don’t shy away from competition because they usually win. This is the type of spirit that drove our ancestors as they conquered and civilized much of the world, and re-capturing that spirit (Trump, anyone?) is the only way we’re going to reverse the slide of societal degeneracy. Jew-derived Forced Equality is not the way forward for our people. As much as I like the project over at TradYouth, I believe their new TradWorker party flies a little too close to the sun in this regard.

  18. Good comment Light Division. I don’t like the pro-socialism, anti-rich sentiments I see in the white identarian movement. I know that libertarians get a bad rap because of their suicidal view of open borders. But economics is a real thing with consequences every bit as real as race. Today’s plutocrats are not the consequence of “free markets”. They are the consequence of cronyism and the thousands of market interventions and redistrobutionist schemes that exist. Hating on the rich does not help matters.

    Trump has a good sense of life, ie he does not back down to Leftists or the mainstream Republicans. But I don’t agree with tax increases on the rich or for anyone. Redistributionist spending needs to be radically cut, the regulatory burden needs to be radically lowered, market interventions need to be removed (ie minimum wage and pro-union legislation) and our suicidal reform-the-Muslim-world foreign policy needs to end. And of course immigration needs to be limited to European countries. You don’t have to go full “laissez faire” to understand that a white nation should aim to be as free market as it can be without undermining racial cohesion. And a class of whites that earned their great wealth *is* something to be proud of. The entire concept of a PROGRESSIVE income tax should be scrapped. Its rotten to its core.

    Too many right wingers accept the same crap economic views as Leftists. That is a mistake. And Robert Lindsay is simply an evil Leftist bastard despite that he’s anti-feminist. That man is hateworthy.

  19. I don’t have any sympathy for these people.

    Here’s just two examples: in the 1960s and 1970s, it was the upper class Whites in Birmingham, specifically in Southside, who worked to undermine Bull Connor and bring about black majority rule in the city. They destroyed Birmingham and made the city uninhabitable for working class and middle class Whites.

    In St. Louis, I have been told about the upper class Whites who live in gated communities in Ladue, who support Obama and vote Democrat, and who boast about how tolerant and anti-racist they are and how they are from “St. Louis.”

  20. I would be delighted if Trump raises taxes.

    I don’t believe in free market economics. Instead, I believe that free trade, open borders, no limits on campaign contributions, low taxes, right to work laws, no regulation and so on all lead inexorably to the oligarchy that we have today and a radical diminishing of living standards for the White majority.

  21. Why should we be proud of Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg? Both want to fuck over everyone else and turn this country into another Brazil. It doesn’t matter that Zuckerberg is Jewish. He’s no different than Gates in that respect.

  22. When I think of creeps like Zuckerberg, Gates et al, I think of the “Oligarchs” in Russia and their reaction to that ’90s phenomenon.

    The oligarchs were chiefly Jewish. Many of them took over industries which were established during Soviet power and thus belonged to all of the people, at least in theory. Using bribery and other forms of corruption and violence, scumbags like Khodorkovsky ended up quickly owning entire sectors of the economy as multibillionaires. Our economic rulers championed these bastards and yelled and screamed in the Financial Times and other papers when Russia imprisoned Khordovsky and stripped him of his wealth. I cheered. But I noted the reaction of the “capitalist” class in the West.

    The looting of Russia in the ’90s was also directed by Larry Summers, Jeffrey Sachs and the other usual suspects who gave “advice.”

    Why do I speak of Russia? I have a stronger feeling of community with Russians than with the Third World horde now constituting ~ 38% of the US…

  23. Ladue’s Republicans, i.e. a metaphor for St. Louis’s suburban old money Republicans, aren’t anything to write home about. Archetype: John Danforth.

    Trump’s tax plan is mostly reduced taxes, but he wants people who have gotten a lot of loopholes to stop getting those loopholes. Which fits what I’m coming to understand about Trump; throughout almost all of his life in business, he has had a dis-taste for publicly traded corporations, Wall Street in general. Remember, Trump is a real estate guy.

  24. I confess that I know little of the Chinese economy but maybe Chinese manufacturers deserve more respect as businessmen than creeps at Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street houses who wrapped up the risky mortgages of minority US homebuyers and peddled them across the world as “financial products.”

  25. “… creeps at Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street houses who wrapped up the risky mortgages of minority US homebuyers and peddled them across the world as ‘financial products.'”

    Maybe they wouldn’t have had any risky mortgages to wrap up and peddle if resentful whites hadn’t voted for the Democrats who pledged taxes as collateral.

  26. According to polls Trump’s biggest supporters are working-class whites. They don’t seem resentful of his (supposed) $10bn.

  27. “According to polls Trump’s biggest supporters are working-class whites. They don’t seem resentful of his (supposed) $10bn.”

    So, what? That simply shows they’re a muddle of instincts, urges, and half-thoughts, as were the prosperous Birmingham anti-racists of whom Mr. Wallace complained above. Only the Jew sees clearly.

  28. William H McCarty
    ‘Is it resentment of wealth or resentment of a rigged game?’

    Rigged game for the win, Alex.

    Productive business owners pay plenty of taxes.

    I have had several small businesses over my lifetime. Government regulations, paperwork and confiscatory tax rates drove me bananas.

    I was semi- retired until recently. Now, I am fully divested of from past business entanglements. Thank goodness.

    Capitalism is great. From the moment we awake in the morning to the minute we nod off we are the beneficiaries of products made and distributed by capitalists, from toilet paper, to air-conditioners, to computers and everything imaginable big and small.

    We are taxed to death.

    Most of the monies are used to subsidize indolent negroes, wetbacks and useless, wasteful government programs.

    Banksters and hedge fund operators are something else entirely- manipulators and parasites for which I have no sympathy.

    “What is nativism?”

    Nothing very complicated. Its a word cuckservatives are trying in place of “racist” to keep uppity Whites down. Those using “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White”, made them back off racist for a while.

    The cuckservatives have also started using Extremist, in place of racist. Again, to keep those uppity Whites in their place.

  30. All of the “Flat Tax” and “Fair Tax” proposals would effectively raise taxes on the middle class while lowering taxes on many billionaires. That’s not a winning formula in the current election climate. We need a populist conservative, not a plutocrat conservative. Trump 2016!

  31. “What’s the difference between Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg?”

    Zuckerberg, being a Jew, knows why he’s doing what he’s doing. Gates, if he’s not a Jew, does not.

  32. “Gates is a traitor.”

    Well, if that’s true–as I doubt–then the difference is as follows: Zuckerberg, being a Jew, is loyal to his people; Gates, if he’s not a Jew, is not.

  33. Trump might do a lot of bragging, but he doesn’t come off as selfish, and he got his fortune in an industry that working class whites can related to in a lot of ways, because where there is real estate development, there is construction.

  34. “Maybe Gates and Zuckerberg want the same thing – open borders – because they both want to profit by exploiting cheap labor?”

    Even if that’s true, there’s still a difference between them. Non-whites brought in as cheap labor won’t harm Zuckerberg’s people; but they’ll destroy the people of Gates, if Gates is not a Jew. Accordingly, Gates, if he’s not a Jew, is either (a) unaware of the consequences for his people, (b) indifferent to the consequences for his people, or (c) at a loss to operate his company without foreign labor because of all of the taxes, manipulations, and regulations that have been imposed upon him by the Democrats whom resentful whites have helped rule over him. Whichever of those three possibilities it is, he is different from Zuckerberg, who, as a Jew, is acting in complete harmony with–and fully in the interest of–his fellow Jews.

  35. Traitors always create well thought out reasons to justify their treason and I’m sure they really believe them too. “Its the principle of it, you see!”

    Whatever his motivations, Gates acts as any traitor would, so I don’t care what his excuses are.

    ‘Trump might do a lot of bragging, but he doesn’t come off as selfish, and he got his fortune in an industry that working class whites can related to in a lot of ways, because where there is real estate development, there is construction.’

    I think you’re on to something.

    Last week as I was driving across my state to visit relatives I tuned in to Limbaugh’s show.

    A man caller said he was contracted by Trump to do work on his Taj Mahal Casino project.

    Apparently, the economy and other factors were disastrous for the casino industry in Atlantic City at the time.

    Trump decided to reorganize and filed bankruptcy on the project.

    Well, the man said he sent Trump a letter on a Tuesday. He told Trump he hoped to be paid the $85,000.00 due him for fulfilling his end of the contract as it was the honorable thing to do and he could not afford the loss being a small contractor. Said Trump had signed the contract with him personally.

    Two days later he received a packet Fed X’ed to him.

    In it was only a personal check signed by Trump in felt pen for $85,OOO.OO.

    i love that because I know how devastating it is to lose money that way.

  37. Sam

    One thing that worried me at first when Trump announced was that: Where there is real estate, there is mass immigration pushing the value of real property up and up and up, and that Trump, as in Donald J., might have an incentive to flood the country with people just to drive up the cost of land.

    If Donald J. was still in his father’s (Fred Trump) line of work, small houses and affordable housing apartment development and management, I think that would be a concern. But Donald J. does big shiny buildings in the hearts of big cities and elsewhere. If the 1965 immigration act never happened, I don’t see how Donald J. would be really much if at all worse for it today. Meanwhile, I’m sure Fred Trump would have loved it. Donald Sterling…now there’s one who directly benefited from mass Hispanic immigration, driving SoCal land prices and rents sky high.

    Donald J.’s very first real estate deal out of college was a Cincinnati apartment complex. Much like his father dealt with. But, Donald J. got out of it when he said (not in these exact words) the black undertow started showing up and encroaching. Then came the Federal spam civil rights disparate impact lawsuits against his father’s business and then his business in the early ’70s, and Donald J. realized that it’s time to look elsewhere, and that’s when he gazed at Manhattan.
