2015: The Year of Trump

1.) Trump is releasing his first television campaign ad in which he doubles down on banning Muslims:

“NEW YORK — Donald Trump’s ad begins with a shot of President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Then comes a U.S. battleship launching a cruise-missile strike. It moves swiftly through an explosive montage: The suspects in the recent California terrorist attack. Shadowy figures racing across the U.S.-Mexico border. Islamic State militants.

The narrator, a deep-voiced man, speaks ominously: “That’s why he’s calling for a temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, until we can figure out what’s going on. He’ll quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil. And he’ll stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that Mexico will pay for.”

The spot closes with the image of Trump thundering at one of his rallies, “We will make America great again!”

2.) Read this article. It is the best wrap up of the 2015 presidential race I have seen yet.

“THE YEAR 2015 will be remembered as one of the most bizarrely compelling and genuinely unnerving in the nation’s modern political history.

It is clear now that there were two halves to the year for the Republican Party: BT and AT, Before Trump and After Trump. From January to mid-June the story of the Republican race was mostly conventional, with Bush the focal point for good and ill. There were unanticipated twists, among them the sheer size of the field of candidates — ultimately a total of 17 who would formally declare.”

  1. In the end, Trump is running for President of the United States, not the Southern republic. We would do well to remember this fact.

  2. WAPO? WAPO? One of the most liberal rags out there? From whence do you derive your doctrine of ‘neutrality,’ HW?

    As a Lutheran, you should at least give tacit acknowledgment to Total Depravity, even if Lutherans today don’t even read, let alone nod the head in the direction of “Bondage of the Will”….

  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/wp/2013/11/08/which-of-the-11-american-nations-do-you-live-in/

    A so-so article with a better map which divides the US county by county into 11 regions. This is a lot like what I envision Partition to be. The map is roughly accurate but I would dispute somethings based upon local knowledge. I would imagine that ceding a reasonable amount of hinterland to the metropolises is inevitable even if the local inhabitants are God fearing whites; the resultant states have to be viable for any deal to work.

  4. Trump with another distressing interview; this time with Bill O’Reilly,

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKAWyuqorBQ

    O’Reilly gives him a fairly friendly interview build up but Trump can’t help but get out to sea on foreign policy. He claims the voters want “unpredictability” from Presidents and Presidential candidates, especially in matters of war. Trump avers that he *might* start a war against Iran (which will lead to a third world war pulling in Russia and China, perhaps without our European allies) to protect Saudi Arabia – provided the Saudis pony up.

    Trump thinks Iran is looking to use Yemen as a launching pad into Saudi Arabia. No, that is not factual. Iran has already washed their hands of Yemen in exchange for the current action in Iraq and Syria against Saudi cat’s paw ISIS.

    Trump does not display command of the chess board (contrast Putin who sees everything crystal clearly). He wants to fight ISIS, while helping Saudi Arabia defend itself from a non-existent plot from Iran.

    I will challenge Trump, and say that Obama et al. deserve credit for blunting and reversing some of the machinations of the neocons. In fact, his “leading from behind” in Libya at the behest of Clinton was his cardinal error in an otherwise PREDICTABLE 8 years.

  5. Unlike McCain and Romney who were nothing more than token opposition to Zero, Trump is in this to win. His commitment can’t be questioned. He’s here, he’s there, he’s everywhere. The engines on his jet are never shut down. If he’s not in the air flying to rallies he’s doing radio and TV interviews. When he’s got a spare minute he tweets. Seriously, for a man of his age he has a ton of energy.

  6. Why is Trump the only candidate with common sense?

    Germany is going through massive attacks to its people by the migrants allowed to enter the country. New Years Eve was a disaster. THINK!

  7. Trump has had a feud with Samuel L. Jackson. Wasn’t sure who he was, so I Googled him. Lawd, what an ugly, bug eyed, insect looking creature. If not for Hollyweird and affirmative action he’d be an attraction at a freak show.
