EDITORIAL: Donald Trump’s momentous idea

One week after he announced his candidacy for president, Donald J. Trump helicoptered into the country club he owns in Sterling to tout his new golf course and survey the damage. Sponsors were already canceling tournaments at Trump courses for his remarks about Mexicans. Trump aimed to protect the Senior PGA Championship scheduled for Trump National in 2017.

But Trump may not be on hand for next year's tournament. He’ll be busy working 27 miles down the Potomac in the White House.

That was not a scenario that those who gathered at the Trump club in Loudoun 17 months ago seriously considered at the time. A small contingent of golf writers and the Times-Mirror came to check out the championship course Trump was opening.

We followed Trump around that course in a golf cart, stopping with him on each hole as he explained the slope, the distance, the placement of bunkers and the break of the greens. Charming and informed, Trump was impressive: a consummate marketer even as he invented his own history for the property.

There on the lush fairways and manicured greens, Donald Trump revealed his true brilliance: the ability to see what others can’t. Trump knew the lay of the course in a way no other person could. It turns out he also read the landscape of the nation like no other presidential candidate could.

Two days before the presidential election, Trump returned to Loudoun County to put a bookend on his improbable campaign. At a rally at the county fairgrounds in Leesburg, he forecast an historic victory.

Again, he was right.

While voters in Loudoun County weren’t so sure -- only 38 percent of them voted for Trump, and the incumbent member of Congress from the 10th District, Republican Barbara Comstock, distanced herself from her party's nominee -- no one can argue with his precognition.

While the insults, vulgarities and divisiveness of a contentious campaign still sting, we are compelled to embrace President-elect Trump’s call for unity. Donald Trump was right about a momentous idea: Disaffected Americans would bring disruptive change to our country. On Tuesday, voters validated that idea.

President Trump: How & Why by Jonathan Pie


Thank you, Virginia SGP.  Your facts about Kris Kobach detail so clearly how racism is not the sole domain of the undereducated, but exists in even our highest institutions.


I have no allegiance, nor am any special fan of Kris Kobach.  But let’s lay out the facts:

1. He graduated summa cu laude from Harvard as an undergrad.

2. He was awarded a Marshall Scholarship (similar to Rhodes Scholar) and received an MA and PhD from Oxford.

3. He then received a JD from Yale Law School (isn’t that where Umstattd attended) including serving as editor of the law journal.

4. He helped craft laws that would restrict college aid to legal residents of various states.

5. He helped craft Arizona’s law that allowed its state law enforcement to work as partners with federal immigration agents.

We understand that Equity, Hillary and all the rest want illegal aliens to come over in droves so they can drive down wages for the lower skilled Americans.  We know they want them to have anchor babies (future Democratic votes) so that the illegal aliens themselves can avoid deportation and become future Democratic votes. 


We allow more immigration than any nation in the world.  About 1/2 of all legal immigrants are Hispanic even though they represent a small % of the world population.  The US is anything BUT racist in its immigration policies.  But Equity and his disgusting political allies use such loaded terms to describe anyone who wants to enforce the law and avoid the wage stagnation that has occurred over the last 30 years.  That is why the Dems lost the entire Rust Belt!!!!


no crying here -  activating against

autocracy
kleptocracy
“creep” of authoritarianism
nepotism
racism
filling swamp w/ lobbyists


Papers please?


Meanwhile, Donald Trump has named the architect of the most racist law in modern American history to his transition team. Last year Kris Kobach was a featured speaker at a meeting of White Nationalists and this year he’s a key member of Donald Trump’s presidential transition team. President-elect Trump is already hard at work to make America great again already (the rest of us knew he was a racist! 

The Ku Klux Klan is so thrilled the man they endorsed for president was victorious, they are planning a victory parade in North Carolina! Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade Dec. 3 2016

“Our goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation, founded on God’s word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races ... we simply want to live separate from them ... As GOD intended. (Lev.20:24-25)”
Victory Klavalkade Klan Parade Dec. 3 2016 NC

“It is a simple fact that whenever these races try to integrate themselves into White society, that society is damaged immensely ... perhaps even destroyed altogether. Everything that we do as Klan members is in furtherance of our ultimate goal. 

“Most of our youth are on DRUGS or pregnant with a mongrel child. . . We need to come together as WHITE CHRISTIAN AMERICANS and spread the word to others. Grab the blind Liberals by their heads and shake them until they wake up. From their JEW TUBE naps and tell them to look around because the ship is sinking. And through the Ku Klux Klan we will wake America up to the evils which are in our Government.”


Think we should give Equity a participation medal to stop the crying.


Equity and the rest still think this was about race and gender. They haven’t figured it out even with all the coverage. The media played their fellow liberals like fools. The rest of us knew Trump is neither a racist nor a sexist, we didn’t buy the narrative meant to intimidate. Only the perpetually offended liberals did. But even they could have gone back and researched Trumps comments, his positions, and analyzed them. That analysis would have shown what he stood for, and what he didn’t stand for. It would have shined a brighter light on him than the mainstream media did, by design. Instead, intellectually lazy and thoughtless liberals bought it hook, line, and sinker. And it doomed them. Will they learn their lessons, and moving forward be skeptical of what they read that is reported and written by the usual suspects? Doubtful.


It has been like the 4th of July this week listening to millions of liberal heads exploding.


orange, Equity is all talk, all the time.  Nothing but a hypocrite for being a bigot (intolerant of others’ ideas) regarding Trump and non-liberal positions. 

For once in their lives, will these liberals who promised to move do what they said they would do?  We can dream….


Although I have regarded Donald Trump as a con man, I hope that his administration will be a successful one for our nation and all of the people in it, including not just the people in Rust Belt states whose factory jobs have gone out of the country, but people of all races and ethnicities who suffer from technological unemployment and those in flood or drought areas brought on by greenhouse gas emissions causing global warming. However, I remain skeptical of the efficacy of the tax cuts and spending increases he talked about in the campaign. It seems to me to be like the “Voodoo Economics” George Herbert Walker Bush spoke of before he joined Pres. Reagan in more than doubling our national debt as a percentage of GDP during their 12 year reign.  And deregulation is what led to the Great Recession of 2008. Still, I hope I am wrong and we all thrive under Republican Trump and the Republican Congress.


I was hoping equity was one of the people who were going to move to Canada if the Donald won the presidency. could it be they all follow their nominees penchant for not telling the truth?


What leftist journalists and liberal elites don’t get is that election was not about race.  We the People, are tired of a lawless president signing unconstitutional executive orders; promoted unfettered “illegal” immigration, forced through the ACA designed to break the system, etc., etc—- all supported by their willing accomplises in the press.  Hillary was Obama 2.0 who has made many racist comments herself not to mention the corrupt Clinton Foundation.  Trump beat back the DC Ruling class (Republicans like Comstock are on that list) and the Biased press.  Losers can continue to cry on their Twitter and throw tantrums or join the Trump Trane because it’s leaving the station without you.  To quote Obama from 2009 in his message to the GOP, “I won”.


Trump is a genius and he played you liberals for fools.

Enjoy the next 8 years.


“Disaffected Americans would bring disruptive change to our country.” - through protest of soon-to-be bigot in chief

we’ll embrace unity when he apologizes to obama and millions of americans for his racist rhetoric and vulgar voice
