Donald Trump or Civil War, I Choose Trump

Robin Hood: You know, we Sax­ons aren’t gonna put up with these oppres­sions much longer.

The Adven­tures of Robin Hood 1938

For the sec­ond time in this elec­tion sea­son the time has come to speak up.

I’ve really resisted endors­ing Don­ald Trump for a long time.

I’ve been wor­ried about his past record of lib­er­al­ism (although given his pri­mary busi­ness involved deal­ing with lib­er­als in big cities such behav­ior might have been nec­es­sary for busi­ness rea­sons). I’ve been wor­ried about his state­ments con­cern­ing planned par­ent­hood & abor­tion (Although not only did Mitt Rom­ney who I voted for flip on abor­tion, but Fr. Frank Pavone who I respect a lot has come out for Trump). I’ve been wor­ried about his deal­ing with face cul­tures (Although with a long busi­ness recorded all over the world the idea that he doesn’t know how to diplo­mat­i­cally deal with dif­fi­cult peo­ple is laugh­able) and finally I was dis­gusted by his attacks on Ted Cruz’s wife and his father, for which I have no answer in paren­the­ses to pro­vide as a counterpoint.

But the thing that has held me back beyond all oth­ers is unlike peo­ple like Scot­tie Nell Hughes or NH State Rep Al Bal­dasaro or Sen­a­tor Jeff Ses­sions all of who I respect a lot I have no idea what his core beliefs are and don’t expect a pri­vate meet­ing any­time soon to assess them.

Thus vot­ing for Trump becomes a leap of faith.

Of course there have been some sig­nif­i­cant pluses to Trump’s Cam­paign that should be acknowledged.

He has called Islamic Ter­ror what it is at a time when the admin­is­tra­tion and the media are spin­ning, acknowl­edg­ing what already exists is the first step in stop­ping it.

He has bluntly talked about the cost of ille­gal immi­gra­tion at a time when sto­ries like this are con­stantly ignored:

Did you hear about that mass shoot­ing? No… not the one in Orlando. Not some Planned Par­ent­hood clinic. Not even Bunny Friend Park. This one took place last week in the small town of Wood­burn, Ore­gon. Three peo­ple were mur­dered in cold blood and fourth one was seri­ously injured. By the def­i­n­i­tions estab­lished by the lib­eral media, this qual­i­fies as a mass shoot­ing. Yet I’m will­ing to bet that most of the coun­try which gets its news from cable tele­vi­sion doesn’t even know it hap­pened. I won­der why?

The basic facts as we know them so far are that Boni­fa­cio Oseguera-​Gonzalez shot and killed three peo­ple, ages 60, 30 and 26, as well as shoot­ing and injur­ing a fourth per­son, age 27. It all took place on a farm. But as KXL news informs us, there’s some­thing of note about the shooter which may be mak­ing the story a bit less inter­est­ing to the media. (Empha­sis added)

The man accused of shoot­ing and killing three peo­ple and injur­ing a fourth on a blue­berry farm out­side of Wood­burn, has been deported from the U.S. six times since 2003. The U.S. Immi­gra­tion and Cus­tomes Enforce­ment spokes­woman says in a writ­ten statement:

And of course he FIGHTS, nobody has hit the media or Clin­ton like Don­ald Trump has and his will­ing­ness to do so has been the dif­fer­ence between some sto­ries being ignored or not. For exam­ple if Don­ald Trump was not run­ning would the MSM have talked about the Katie Steinle mur­der at all?

But all these things were not enough to push me over the line with­out a face to face meet­ing that didn’t con­sist of a ques­tion or two asked at a press conference.

How­ever the last 10 days, sev­eral fac­tors have, in my opin­ion forced this deci­sion on me.

The Supreme Court:

Sev­eral cases at the Supreme court came up of sig­nif­i­cance, we saw a key abor­tion case go to the left thanks to Jus­tice Anthony (now you know why the left fought so hard to dump Bork ) Kennedy, We saw the Obama exec­u­tive order on immi­gra­tion only fall by a 44 tie. Between these and other cases that were not taken let­ting deci­sions by lib­eral judges stand I have come to the con­clu­sion that, given the fact that the Obama appointees are ide­o­logues and that Hillary Clinton’s appoint­ments would be more of the same, the only chance for the con­sti­tu­tion to be enforced as writ­ten is to keep her out of the oval office.

The Jus­tice Depart­ment and Loretta Lynch:

From Fast and Furi­ous to the Black Pan­thers in Philly to the IRS Scan­dal and Lois Lerner the Jus­tice Depart­ment and both Loretta Lynch and her pre­de­ces­sor have ignored or pooh poohed vio­la­tions of law, refused to enforce or defend exist­ing law and ignored attempts to use the power of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to attack their polit­i­cal opponents.

The meet­ing with Bill Clin­ton might be the actions that has brought this to the fore­front but this type of thing has been going on for nearly eight years and there is absolutely no rea­son to believe that if the left is rewarded with another four to eight years this will not continue.

Hillary Clin­ton:

Between Beng­hazi and the email server and the for­eign dona­tion to the Clin­ton foun­da­tion it has become clear that Mrs. Clin­ton would 1. Use the White House and the pres­i­dency as her own pri­vate slush fund. 2. Con­tinue to use the power of the pres­i­dency to attack the civil rights of con­ser­v­a­tives, par­tic­u­larly believ­ing Chris­tians of all denom­i­na­tions and gun own­ers for polit­i­cal rea­sons. 3. Con­tinue to pro­tect rad­i­cal Islam as it con­tin­ues to march for­ward not only in Amer­ica but overseas.

And none of that even begins to touch on what Bill Clin­ton will be doing dur­ing the 4 to 8 years.

The Media:

If we had a media in the cut of a Jake Tap­per a Carl Cameron or a Byron York then a lot of the wor­ries I’ve talked about would be mit­i­gated, but that is not what he have.

We have a media that has at every turn defended this admin­is­tra­tion, turned a blind eye to scan­dal, relent­lessly mis­rep­re­sented events and actions and acted as the polit­i­cal wing of the rad­i­cal left, Democ­rats with Bylines is the word that’s been used. The two final straws were the Orlando attack and the Bill Clin­ton Loretta Lynch meeting.

When the left and the Democ­rats tried to turn an Islamic Ter­ror attack into a gun con­trol event and blame Repub­li­cans and chris­tians for these killings, did the media chal­lenge them? Did they point to the rad­i­cal­iza­tion of the shooter, the Father’s rad­i­cal pro­nounce­ments, the wife’s escape and more? No they went along whole hog with this false nar­ra­tive for the same rea­son they advanced a false nar­ra­tive at Beng­hazi, because it is an elec­tion year and they feared the truth would hurt the Demo­c­rat party.

Not as deadly phys­i­cally but just as deadly to the repub­lic was their reac­tion to the Loretta Lynch meet­ing with Bill Clin­ton to talk about the Grand­chil­dren Ms. Lynch doesn’t have. With the notable excep­tion of Mika Brzezin­ski the spin to defend the Clin­ton and to buy the “oh we just bumped into each other” BS was astound­ing. And for the few on the left who did object, their object was based solely on optics that might affect the election.

I sub­mit and sug­gest we will not have a media that chal­lenges mis­deeds in Wash­ing­ton until and unless the GOP is in the White House.


All of this points to the neces­sity of Trump but there is one other fac­tor that I think is even more deci­sive. It’s a sub­ject I brought up a few years ago.

Amer­i­can cul­ture tra­di­tion­ally is like an old Pop­eye car­toon. It takes hit after hit after hit until finally it exclaims:

I think the break­ing point is near, I think there are a lot of peo­ple in this coun­try who are decid­ing that the Gov­ern­ment is openly hos­tile to them. I think that the sight of women and gay men being beaten by left­ists because they sup­port the pre­sump­tive GOP nom­i­nee, hav­ing it hap­pen in full sight of police ordered to do noth­ing AND SEE­ING THOSE OFFI­CERS CHOOS­ING TO LET THEM BE BEATEN means that they can not count on the author­i­ties to obey their oaths of office if they think doing so might cost them their jobs.

Even worse than this is the obvi­ous ques­tion it raises: If left­ists are will­ing to resort to vio­lence and boast about it before an elec­tion when it might hurt their abil­ity to per­suade the peo­ple to vote for them, how much more will­ing will they be to vio­lently sup­press their polit­i­cal foes when such behav­ior is rewarded with elec­toral vic­tory by the people?

What will that tell a pop­u­lace that has already been arm­ing itself non­stop for the last 46 years?

Three years ago I quoted the blog Camp of the Saints in speak­ing about the results of ignor­ing the use of the IRS to sup­press conservatives.

peo­ple are going to start con­clud­ing this:

The gov­ern­ment of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accord­ingly.

That’s all he can stands, he can’t stands no more!

If enough peo­ple start think­ing that in our well armed soci­ety, bad things hap­pen. I really don’t think the left sees this dan­ger or if they do per­haps they have decided that an armed para­mil­i­tary IRS etc is the way to solve it.

Things have already got­ten worse, we’ve already had blood­shed in the west and we’re reached the point where the Clin­tons are even both­er­ing to hide it any­more (please don’t insult my intel­li­gence in sug­gest­ing that Bill Clin­ton is stu­pid enough to think his meet­ing with Lynch would get out, he knew it would) I sub­mit and sug­gest he wanted to send the mes­sage that this is the way it is and there’s noth­ing you can do it.

I think if these peo­ple are elected before the end of a sec­ond term enough Amer­i­cans will decide if they are not going to lose their rights with­out a fight and there will be blood­shed on a scale we haven’t seen in over 150 years.

And even if it doesn’t come to that, if some­how the Clin­tons are wise enough to show restraint enough to keep this from hap­pen­ing, the paral­y­sis at home will embolden Al Qaeda, ISIS the Rus­sians, the North Kore­ans the Ira­ni­ans and the Chi­nese. I think we are going to see nuclear pro­lif­er­a­tion on a global scale because nations will decide a par­a­lyzed US that believes its own cit­i­zens are it’s pri­mary enemy can’t or won’t pro­tect them, I think is very pos­si­ble Israel will be put in the posi­tion where they will have to choose between a nuclear first strike or their destruction.

I sus­pect I and a lot of the faith­ful will have to spend a lot of the next 8 years pray­ing, fast­ing and beg­ging God to help both our coun­try and the world avoid this hor­ri­ble fate but while spir­i­tual steps to pre­vent these cat­a­stro­phes are good and proper tem­po­ral steps must also be taken.

And the sin­gle best tem­po­ral step will be the elec­tion of Don­ald Trump and the break­ing of the power of those Amer­i­cans who have decided their fel­low cit­i­zens are the enemy.

Again I don’t take this step lightly, I know that there will be times that Don­ald Trump will dis­ap­point­ment me just as I expected Mitt Rom­ney to dis­ap­point me on social issues and John McCain to dis­ap­point me on immi­gra­tion and George W Bush who dis­ap­pointed me on spend­ing and the bank bailouts.

But while Trump will occa­sion­ally dis­ap­point me (when he does I’ll call him on it) I am con­vinced he will nei­ther per­se­cute me nor strip me of my rights for hold­ing my Con­ser­v­a­tive Catholic beliefs and act­ing on them.

I am very sorry to say I can not make that same state­ment about Hillary Clin­ton, and I’m even sor­rier to see the day when I would say this about a pres­i­den­tial candidate.

I sus­pect a lot of peo­ple on the right see the very same thing that I do com­ing and don’t want to admit it either out of fear or in the vain hope that pre­tend­ing these things are not hap­pen­ing will keep them from happening.

That is no way to deal with an unpleas­ant real­ity, the only way to do so is to admit it and act upon it and the time to act and speak is now before the GOP con­ven­tion not after.

There­fore I am vot­ing for Don­ald J Trump for pres­i­dent, and I encour­age you, what­ever your mis­giv­ings to do the same, because if we reward the behav­ior of the left and their press enablers for their actions dur­ing the Obama years, the Hillary years will make the pre­vi­ous eight seem like a walk in the park.


Well the year his half over and despite a hor­ri­ble June (My worst traf­fic month in many years) We are still way over our pace at this time last year and slightly over the pre­vi­ous six months here at DaT­e­chGuy Blog the first six months of last year.

Robin Hood: You know, we Saxons aren’t gonna put up with these oppressions much longer.

The Adventures of Robin Hood 1938

For the second time in this election season the time has come to speak up.

I’ve really resisted endorsing Donald Trump for a long time.

I’ve been worried about his past record of liberalism (although given his primary business involved dealing with liberals in big cities such behavior might have been necessary for business reasons). I’ve been worried about his statements concerning planned parenthood & abortion (Although not only did Mitt Romney who I voted for flip on abortion, but Fr. Frank Pavone who I respect a lot has come out for Trump). I’ve been worried about his dealing with face cultures (Although with a long business recorded all over the world the idea that he doesn’t know how to diplomatically deal with difficult people is laughable) and finally I was disgusted by his attacks on Ted Cruz’s wife and his father, for which I have no answer in parentheses to provide as a counterpoint.

But the thing that has held me back beyond all others is unlike people like Scottie Nell Hughes or NH State Rep Al Baldasaro or Senator Jeff Sessions all of who I respect a lot I have no idea what his core beliefs are and don’t expect a private meeting anytime soon to assess them.

Thus voting for Trump becomes a leap of faith.

Of course there have been some significant pluses to Trump’s Campaign that should be acknowledged.

He has called Islamic Terror what it is at a time when the administration and the media are spinning, acknowledging what already exists is the first step in stopping it.

He has bluntly talked about the cost of illegal immigration at a time when stories like this are constantly ignored:

Did you hear about that mass shooting? No… not the one in Orlando. Not some Planned Parenthood clinic. Not even Bunny Friend Park. This one took place last week in the small town of Woodburn, Oregon. Three people were murdered in cold blood and fourth one was seriously injured. By the definitions established by the liberal media, this qualifies as a mass shooting. Yet I’m willing to bet that most of the country which gets its news from cable television doesn’t even know it happened. I wonder why?

The basic facts as we know them so far are that Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez shot and killed three people, ages 60, 30 and 26, as well as shooting and injuring a fourth person, age 27. It all took place on a farm. But as KXL news informs us, there’s something of note about the shooter which may be making the story a bit less interesting to the media. (Emphasis added)

The man accused of shooting and killing three people and injuring a fourth on a blueberry farm outside of Woodburn, has been deported from the U.S. six times since 2003. The U.S. Immigration and Customes Enforcement spokeswoman says in a written statement:

And of course he FIGHTS, nobody has hit the media or Clinton like Donald Trump has and his willingness to do so has been the difference between some stories being ignored or not.  For example if Donald Trump was not running would the MSM have talked about the Katie Steinle murder at all?

But all these things were not enough to push me over the line without a face to face meeting that didn’t consist of a question or two asked at a press conference.

However the last 10 days, several factors have, in my opinion forced this decision on me.

The Supreme Court:

Several cases at the Supreme court came up of significance, we saw a key abortion case go to the left thanks to Justice Anthony (now you know why the left fought so hard to dump Bork ) Kennedy, We saw the Obama executive order on immigration only fall by a 4-4 tie. Between these and other cases that were not taken letting decisions by liberal judges stand I have come to the conclusion that, given the fact that the Obama appointees are ideologues and that Hillary Clinton’s appointments would be more of the same, the only chance for the constitution to be enforced as written is to keep her out of the oval office.

The Justice Department and Loretta Lynch:

From Fast and Furious to  the Black Panthers in Philly to the IRS Scandal and Lois Lerner the Justice Department and both Loretta Lynch and her predecessor have ignored or pooh poohed violations of law, refused to enforce or defend existing law and ignored attempts to use the power of the federal government to attack their political opponents.

The meeting with Bill Clinton might be the actions that has brought this to the forefront but this type of thing has been going on for nearly eight years and there is absolutely no reason to believe that if the left is rewarded with another four to eight years this will not continue.

Hillary Clinton:

Between Benghazi and the email server and the foreign donation to the Clinton foundation it has become clear that Mrs. Clinton would 1.  Use the White House and the presidency as  her own private slush fund.  2. Continue to use the power of the presidency to attack the civil rights of conservatives, particularly believing Christians of all denominations and gun owners for political reasons.  3.  Continue to protect radical Islam as it continues to march forward not only in America but overseas.

And none of that even begins to touch on what Bill Clinton will be doing during the 4 to 8 years.

The Media:

If we had a media in the cut of a Jake Tapper a Carl Cameron or a Byron York then a lot of the worries I’ve talked about would be mitigated, but that is not what he have.

We have a media that has at every turn defended this administration, turned a blind eye to scandal, relentlessly misrepresented events and actions and acted as the political wing of the radical left, Democrats with Bylines is the word that’s been used.  The two final straws were the Orlando attack and the Bill Clinton Loretta Lynch meeting.

When the left and the Democrats tried to turn an Islamic Terror attack into a gun control event and blame Republicans and christians for these killings, did the media challenge them?  Did they point to the radicalization of the shooter, the Father’s radical pronouncements, the wife’s escape and more?  No they went along whole hog with this false narrative for the same reason they advanced a false narrative at Benghazi, because it is an election year and they feared the truth would hurt the Democrat party.

Not as deadly physically but just as deadly to the republic was their reaction to the Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton to talk about the Grandchildren Ms. Lynch doesn’t have.  With the notable exception of Mika Brzezinski the spin to defend the Clinton and to buy the “oh we just bumped into each other” BS was astounding.  And for the few on the left who did object, their object was based solely on optics that might affect the election.

I submit and suggest we will not have a media that challenges misdeeds in Washington until and unless the GOP is in the White House.


All of this points to the necessity of Trump but there is one other factor that I think is even more decisive.  It’s a subject I brought up a few years ago.

American culture traditionally is like an old Popeye cartoon. It takes hit after hit after hit until finally it exclaims:

I think the breaking point is near, I think there are a lot of people in this country who are deciding that the Government is openly hostile to them.  I think that the sight of women and gay men being beaten by leftists because they support the presumptive GOP nominee, having it happen in full sight of police ordered to do nothing AND SEEING THOSE OFFICERS CHOOSING TO LET THEM BE BEATEN means that they can not count on the authorities to obey their oaths of office if they think doing so might cost them their jobs.

Even worse than this is the obvious question it raises: If leftists are willing to resort to violence and boast about it before an election when it might hurt their ability to persuade the people to vote for them, how much more willing will they be to violently suppress their political foes when such behavior is rewarded with electoral victory by the people?

What will that tell a populace that has already been arming itself nonstop for the last 4-6 years?

Three years ago I quoted the blog Camp of the Saints in speaking about the results of ignoring the use of the IRS to suppress conservatives.

 

people are going to start concluding this:

The government of The United States is not legitimate.

Act accordingly.

That’s all he can stands, he can’t stands no more!

If enough people start thinking that in our well armed society, bad things happen. I really don’t think the left sees this danger or if they do perhaps they have decided that an armed paramilitary IRS etc is the way to solve it.

 

Things have already gotten worse, we’ve already had bloodshed in the west and we’re reached the point where the Clintons are even bothering to hide it anymore (please don’t insult my intelligence in suggesting that Bill Clinton is stupid enough to think his meeting with Lynch would get out, he knew it would) I submit and suggest he wanted to send the message that this is the way it is and there’s nothing you can do it.

I think if these people are elected before the end of a second term enough Americans will decide if they are not going to lose their rights without a fight and there will be bloodshed on a scale we haven’t seen in over 150 years.

And even if it doesn’t come to that, if somehow the Clintons are wise enough to show restraint enough to keep this from happening, the paralysis at home will embolden Al Qaeda, ISIS the Russians, the North Koreans the Iranians and the Chinese. I think we are going to see nuclear proliferation on a global scale because nations will decide a paralyzed US that believes its own citizens are it’s primary enemy can’t or won’t protect them, I think is very possible Israel will be put in the position where they will have to choose between a nuclear first strike or their destruction.

I suspect I and a lot of the faithful will have to spend a lot of the next 8 years praying, fasting and begging God to help both our country and the world avoid this horrible fate but while spiritual steps to prevent these catastrophes are good and proper temporal steps must also be taken.

And the single best temporal step will be the election of Donald Trump and the breaking of the power of those Americans who have decided their fellow citizens are the enemy.

Again I don’t take this step lightly, I know that there will be times that Donald Trump will disappointment me just as I expected Mitt Romney to disappoint me on social issues and John McCain to disappoint me on immigration and George W Bush who disappointed me on spending and the bank bailouts.

But while Trump will occasionally disappoint me (when he does I’ll call him on it) I am convinced he will neither persecute me nor strip me of my rights for holding my Conservative Catholic beliefs and acting on them.

I am very sorry to say I can not make that same statement about Hillary Clinton, and I’m even sorrier to see the day when I would say this about a presidential candidate.

I suspect a lot of people on the right see the very same thing that I do coming and don’t want to admit it either out of fear or in the vain hope that pretending these things are not happening will keep them from happening.

That is no way to deal with an unpleasant reality, the only way to do so is to admit it and act upon it and the time to act and speak is now before the GOP convention not after.

Therefore I am voting for Donald J Trump for president, and I encourage you, whatever your misgivings to do the same, because if we reward the behavior of the left and their press enablers for their actions during the Obama years, the Hillary years will make the previous eight seem like a walk in the park.
