Why Do Attacks On Trump Continue Despite Massive Popular Support?

By Griping Grandpa

Donald Trump has been criticized, attacked and ridiculed, not just by others running for President, but also by members of his own party, who apparently would prefer to see Hillary in the White House.

“Why?” you may ask.

Mr. X

Before I answer that, let me tell you about the person who, for convenience, I call “Mr. X”. Actually, Mr. X is not really one guy; he represents a type of person who cares about little else than accumulating vast amounts of money and power. In truth, there are many such guys. and have been for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. A few of them were very successful and floated to the top of the pyramid. Keep that in mind, but for now, let’s stick with the idea of a Mr. X. That’s easier to visualize and focus on.

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X at Work

Mr. X is super rich. How did he get that way? Well, once upon a time, there was a war. Wars are very expensive, you know. You have to pay all those soldiers, buy them uniforms, guns and ammo, as well as feed them. And wars tend to drag on. After a while one side was running out of money and instead of quitting at that time, Mr. X came to the rescue. He ran a bank and was looking after the savings of many people. So he lent them money. “No rush,” he said, “You can pay me back, with interest, after the war.” So it was agreed. Soon afterward the other side also ran out of money, so Mr. X extended the same offer to them. When the war was over, Mr. X scored big. Not only did he have two governments that owed him money and/or favors, but whole cities had to be rebuilt and lots of money was needed for that. Mr. X again came through with new loans at interest.

More wars followed, with Mr. X helping out. He prospered beyond his wildest dreams. Not only did he have heaps of money, he had several governments – the ones that couldn’t pay off the loans – in his pocket. (Kind of silly, if you think about it. The governments shouldn’t have started wars in the first place, but if they did, they didn’t have to borrow money – they could have printed their own.)

Mr. X was very clever, in a fiendish way. He applied four principles to strengthen his wealth and power:
1. Create debt, by lending money at interest. If they can’t pay off the loan, take their property or secure favors.
2. Create scarcity. Wars will do that, as will economic boom-bust cycles. Both of these can be created at will.
3. Create fear. People in fear can’t see what is really going on and become ineffective.
4. Create conflict. The old “divide and conquer” principle, preventing people from handling what really undermines them.

Today, Mr. X still does the banking trick. Here in the US, his job is made quite easy. If you deposit $100 into the bank, Mr. X will lend $1000 (which he doesn’t really have) with interest by writing a check. It’s totally legal. And you wonder why most people are broke. But Mr. X’s influence extends far beyond banking. He’s got his finger in just about every pie: money, energy, agriculture, education, the media, medicine, manufacturing, trade, politics and religion, to name a few. His goal is world domination.

For many years the media dismissed mention of Mr. X as”conspiracy theory” and laughed it off as paranoid imagination, but today we have more than a theory, thanks to Wikileaks and whistle blowers.

Trump

Trump’s plans clash with Mr. X’s agenda. Here are some examples of why Trump does not fit the mold.

1. Trump puts America first. Any rational American would agree that one should put one’s own house in order before trying to change the rest of the world. Mr. X wants a borderless world, which will make it easier to control.

2. Trump wants to boost the economy by renegotiating trade agreements so they are more favorable for America. He wants to bring back American companies that have moved to other countries, which should bring back previously lost jobs and raise prosperity levels. Mr. X does not want a prosperous America. The United States, with its tradition of individual freedom is the greatest obstacle to achieving world domination, so he wants us to struggle and to become more and more dependent on government support.

3. Trump wants to control immigration. He rightly is against illegal immigration, as law-abiding people should be against any illegal activity, and he wants would-be immigrants vetted to ensure they endorse the American way of life. Mr. X wants to bring in vast numbers of refugees from majorly different cultures, so he can divide (Christians vs. Muslims for example) and conquer.

4. Trump wants to return control over education to the States. Mr. X wants the schools to teach his one-world propaganda and keep the students dumb, igmorant, cowed and obedient to authority. Mr. X does not want bright, independent thinkers. Widespread drug use of course helps him with that.

We can’t be sure that Trump, as President, would fulfill all of his promised reforms, but as a billionaire himself, he does not need financial support from Mr. X, which is a big step in the right direction.

We are all complicit, to some degree, in allowing Mr. X’s influence to become so pervasive. We can do something about it by getting out of debt, educating ourselves, spreading the word and not getting involved in any “us vs. them” conflicts.

If you value your (and your children’s) freedom and life and do not want to further Mr. X’s one-world keep-everyone-poor agenda, you know who to vote for.

Some thoughts about polling to win:

how to win

As a Trumpster I should like to welcome you and Steve Dannon to the Trump Train!

I write  a political blog called “Grandma Thunder an Independent Voice” – been doing it since  April 2011, which is when I first became concerned about America.

I am active on social media, 12,000 impressions on Twitter last week. And so I see and hear much. To meet the needs of my “independent” blog  I visit the traditional Republican blogs, but also go a visiting for good content on the Left, or wherever I find “Energy, Sanity & Good Spirit”.

My aim as a writer is to understand and to pass these “understandings” along. 

So as an  “Independent” why do I also class myself as a “Trumpster” during this election cycle?  Usually I am very careful not to take sides. It is because I am well informed and know that in 2016 America (and the world) is on the tipping point. It is not a time to sit comfortably “on the fence”

Let me share with you an analysis from Gallup on issues close to the hearts of voters in 2016; interesting, because they assign importance by party. Gallup is asking all the traditional questions and there are some useful insights to be gleaned – but only in part.  This Gallup analysis does not fully align with what I am actually seeing and hearing in social media. It does not explain in any which way, why American citizens become Trumpsters?.

imp issuesThis analysis is useful but incomplete.

It seems Gallup has no inkling that election 2016 is about “patriot vs global”
I find this also in MSM and also from the Clinton political consultants where they see and call the Trump movement “populist”. Blind they are  because with blinkers on they truly cannot explain his popularity.

The best thing about Trump is that he is an outsider.

Define outsider: somebody not part of the GOP Elites or the Democratic Elites but most of all not a member of the global club. Election 2016 is really about Global vs. Patriot. 

Gallup like all the political consultants and corrupt media are still stuck in the old, corrupt, entrenched politics, politics that we Trumpsters well know have failed us.

What questions did Gallup omit? Questions directed at the following:

Authenticity: We see this as integrity – the courage to see what you see, and say it and not pander to the donors, the lobbyists and the special interests.

“I am who I am,” Trump told a Wisconsin TV station, “It’s me. I don’t want to change. … I don’t want to pivot. … If you start pivoting, you are not being honest with people”  We like this.

Trumpsters have a moral compass, and we want our elected candidates to also adhere to a personal moral code.  We vote for Trump because with his money he has been able to avoid the corruption that has become cemented into the political process.

The issue of Globalism is very important to Trumpsters. We don’t want it. It is not that we have no global perception or responsibility but we (like Trump) see the world as a collection of Nation-States getting along. No imperial wars.

We don’t want our jobs sent overseas to China, Mexico or India.

We are very concerned by the rise of “coercive” government eg LGBT The rumor is the AG is compiling a “Hit List” for those “questioning” climate change.  In California citizens are now “forced” to inoculate their children. Hello? If we don’t handle this coercion in this election, we are stepping onto a slide that has no bottom.

We hate monopoly and think this should be controlled & policed by Justice; a Justice that has not been doing a good job with the anti-trust laws for a long time.

We reject hypocrisy: Into that same phony bucket we throw RINOs  (know them by how they spell this word RINO (Republicans in Name Only) If you are a true Republican, you find the time to understand and study the constitution. Actually if you have integrity you do it every election cycle. One hour a week with Hillsdale College Constitution 101, excellent free course. Do that and you can’t vote (like Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan, McCain and McConnell & McCarthy) for Trade Deals that subordinate America to International Courts.

Trumpsters support the natural rights of the Declaration of Independence, not the socialistic Human Rights from the U.N.

We are well enough informed to know that the Fox slander on Roger Ailes has no substance.  Trumpsters welcome Roger to the Trump Train. We welcome his incredible. brilliance and expertise.  We need his experience to help us win in November. Good that he got out of the hypocritical FOX. With us when we win, his future is golden

You will see throughout my blog posts where I talk about “Moral Compass”  Trumpsters want to bring morality back to America. Trumpsters support churches and religion and prayer and religious freedom and a constitution founded on “natural” rights. Some of us are acutely concerned by the progressive’s continuing assault on the Constitution and on Justice.

Trumpsters are aware that “Immigrants and Refugees” is one giant SOROS gerrymandering plan for America.  Overwhelm America with these illegals and         unvetted Muslim refugees, and  “Progressives” have a majority for decades. Even worse we suffer an increase of terrorism.

Trumpsters intensely dislike the “rigged system”  So issues like Voter Fraud are high on our list of “importances”.

trump promise

Grandma’s Conclusions:

  1. The left are running a brilliantly, nasty campaign. Their main strategy is to use ridicule to slander Trump and to block his message.  He is called “Whacko Trump” and “Emperor with no Clothes”.The truth is that if Trump wins, you win, we win and America wins.This will happen if we muster an overwhelming majority.  So the Trump campaign has to dead-agent this Progressive slander.Maybe connect Trump with other great thinkers who were thought “just a little bit crazy”. Were they labeled crazy because they did not sell-out their truth? If you can equate the left slander with the earth is flat; or no need to wash your hands, and Trump with Joan of Arc, Socrates, Galileao we can get this into perspective.
  2. On the subject of morality the Clinton base (like her) is largely immoral; living  on the gravy train is immoral and that is what Trump will end; why he is attacked. Too many people on the gravy train already, shouldn’t be able to vote.Without cutting Clinton slack, you may have to find an extra button if you want to sliver off some of her followers, enough for us to get a big win.You may want to look at the demographic of lower class ethnics (legal & illegal) on their way up, seeking to learn & grow.  I am a teacher and I have taught the disadvantaged. Handle their language, and how they learn, and they climb out of poverty. Contrary to accusations, Trumpsters support diversity.
  3.  I think Trump has made the “crooked Hillary” tag already stick yet, and does it not surprise you as it does me, that with all the dirty secrets that are seeing the light of day, that her numbers hold firm.  It could just be that be her followers don’t care she crooked.  They are crooked also. Or it could just be a false narrative.
  4. Trump dominates at rallies, and on social media. So to make sense out of the contrary data,  could it be that the polls, like so much else in MSM are also false:Game: False polls justify voter fraud via doctored voting machines.Add into the mix that illegal immigrants have been voting.I have long suspected Obama won by corruptly embracing the Illegal Latino Vote.

Here are a  few suggestions:

Progressive thinking is “Power” driven. So any indication of Clinton’s weakness is productive of results, like “her health issue”. Here they are preparing for her in the the White House (sic) Hillary's health Showing her to be the paid puppet of corrupt elites, makes her less like the kind of President we want for Free America.

The high importance Democrats place on Education is an opportunity. Of course they want FREE education from cradle to end of college. But in the ethnic class there is a thirst for education, something good, so it is not just a ploy for a free benefit. They see education as a way to elevate their children to a higher economic class.   Show them how Republicans can help them.  Explain how Progressive Education is Propaganda, but Republicans truly plan to help their kids to think, learn to do things and  get a better job. Teach and help them to start and successfully run a small business (get rid of regulations). Prove that with Republicans they can improve their lot. Satisfy their thirst for betterment and you have got them.

(After all this is a shortcut to supporting Social Security in an aging America.  We have fewer people entering the workforce than leaving it. We have an aging population)

Trump’s Weaknesses
He does not have a solution (other than deportation for the 11m illegal immigrants   already in America. He did not create the situation, it was created by prior presidents and legislators BUT IT WILL BE  HIS TO HANDLE, JUST AS SOON AS HE GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

Building a wall is a strength, restoring rule of law and respect for rule of law is a       great strength  That said, the CHILDREN OF ILLEGALS is going to come up as a subject in the debates AND WILL BE HIS WEAKNESS. This is because Americans like children and want them to succeed.

The courts have been misapplying the “Born in America”  granting citizenship improperly to Latino children for decades but that doesn’t change the situation we have right now. Have to solve it for  if the parents get deported, and the kids stay behind in foster homes, we have a break down of the family, leading  to problems in our schools and on a broader scale, much social unrest coming in at a time when our corrupt banking structure is failing.

Latino children in schools, this is a growing number and costs us much. Studies show such children under-perform. That said the two possible reasons for this can be fixed; put them somewhere where they can learn English and where they feel safe. Help only those families who are willing to learn.  Adults also. We need to qualify them and select only those worth the investment. It is about attitude and willingness. Language is also a factor

latino kidsWhat is vital and important is that we educate these children to  contribute to the social contract.  We also teach them to love the constitution and America. 

So  I suggest Trump embrace immigrant education, Other education is better transferred down to the states.

Trump does not have to solve it NOW but he has to show he is aware of the problem and express compassion and say that HE IS LOOKING INTO A GOOD SOLUTION.  If pressed for specifics he can talk loosely about Border Industries.

Jeff Sessions is correct Democrats don’t see these people as people. They see        them as “Useful Idiots”  (Saul Alinsky)  If Trump comes up with a compassionate     and fair solution, he wins BIG TIME. Truly it is a way to win. The Pope will even start to smile.

If Hillary wins and appoints liberal judges:
No more Republic, no more America and Islamic Domination and a socialist world in
poverty

NOTE: While not yet fact checked it is being suggested in social media that Democrats are already recruiting Illegals to man their local State offices. We have no idea of how many illegals voted in 2012? Do we even have a legal president, probably not?  I USED TO THINK THAT THESE STATE OFFICES WERE VITAL AND IMPORTANT BUT NOW NOT SURE seems a big waste of time & money and I think Trump can win without them. But he only wins if he makes sure illegals cannot vote. He should also check that all vote counting computers, ALWAYS ISSUE A RECEIPT to deter programming voter fraud.

Have a team inspect voting machines NOW.

Use @ Bikers4Trump on exit polls. Start fundraising for them NOW.

There you have it.

I hope this was helpful.

They try so hard to block Trump’s message

Helping you make sense out of the efforts to “slime Donald J. Trump 

shutterstock_177770915

CRC senior vice president Matthew Vadum has an interesting take in FrontPageMag about the mainstream media’s all-out war to destroy GOP nominee Donald Trump. It’s not really about countering Trump’s message. It’s about preventing him from reaching the voters.

As he writes, “The leftist narrative being deployed against Trump is based on lies, half-truths, and nothing-burgers. They don’t even have to make sense. All they have to accomplish is to hold Trump up to ridicule.”

Now that Donald Trump is safely ensconced as the official Republican nominee for president, the mainstream media is running an intense around-the-clock operation to deprive him of the relatively unfiltered media exposure he needs to seal the deal with the American people.

Trump being silly and playful in front of TV cameras or utilizing his sense of humor is cast as evidence of a disordered, antisocial mind. The media is focusing on minor benign details and marketing them as the evil deeds of an evil man. This is by design.

Preventing Trump from communicating effectively with Americans didn’t work so well during the primaries. We will see what happens now.  With Trump, the master communicator whose outreach skills arguably mirror President Obama’s, the message is everything. Squelch his voice and he’s finished.

So Americans are subjected to a buffet of stupid “news” stories that happen to help journalists make their case against Trump. Meeting the Donald head-on wouldn’t work at  all so instead it’s death by a thousand cuts from a thousand mosquito directions.

For example: the fact that a veteran admired Trump so much that he gave a copy of his Purple Heart medal to the candidate who made a lighthearted joke about always wanting to receive the medal (an obvious absurdity since you have to be injured during military service to get it) was twisted to make the case Trump was a draft dodger who hates military families that have lost loved ones in wars.  Trump is at the same time a war monger and a cowards war dodger. Of course, there’s  Barack Obama, the Left’s anti-war president of all time. After being elected Obama didn’t bother to consult Congress before launching an illegal, ill-advised war against Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi. Now LIbya is an unholy mess, and the American people are getting refugees they do not want.

At the DNC according to the wrathful Khizr Khan Trump has sacrificed nothing, so he needs to shut up.

That is what it is all about, shutting up Trump.

Trump’s run-in with the sleazy immigration lawyer is still receiving media attention. The lie that Trump attacked Khan’s hero son who died in Iraq won’t die. It’s taken on a life of its own and hardened into fact in the minds of many.

Yet the media ignores the fact that Hillary Clinton let four men die in Benghazi, Libya, when U.S. facilities came under terrorist attack, and then lied to the surviving family members’ faces, blaming an anti-Islam YouTube video nobody saw. The media also avoids providing a body count for the Arab Spring that Clinton inflicted on North Africa and the Middle East. Trump gets creamed by the media no matter what he says or does.

After playfully tolerating an infant’s crying from the podium at a rally, Trump eventually asked the mother to remove the baby from an event. That’s what decent people do. It’s called politeness. At CNN’s website MoveOn mom Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner berates Trump, claiming he was mocking the mother. Trump doesn’t realize “that when he throws a baby out, the metaphorical bathwater can’t be ignored.” This garden-variety humorless left-wing feminist used the opportunity to blather on about equal pay, how women outnumber men in this country, and the need for crazy-expensive big government programs like paid family parental leave.

To the Left what Trump did is a grievous offense against civility and social norms, yet Clinton’s communistic blueprint It Takes A Village, calls for the state “to teach, train and raise children,” adding that “[p]arents have a secondary role.” Put Hillary in the White House and she’ll solve the problem of crying babies by terminating parental rights. After all, that’s what she says in her book.

Trump & Manafort are attacked for being pro Russia yet Clinton is much closer to Russia than Trump . She even cut bad deals with that country to hand over a big chunk of American uranium to the Kremlin.

Journalists are engaging in all this mischief because they are acutely aware that if Trump can somehow penetrate the massive propaganda force-field the mainstream media has erected around his campaign, the party is over. The thinking among the media and the Left – but I repeat myself – is that if they can keep strategically placing nasty little booby-traps in the undisciplined candidate’s path they can keep him off-message and floundering long enough to get would-be federal inmate Hillary Clinton across the finish line on Nov. 8.

trump promiseOn the other hand if Trump can reach voters with his tremendously popular message of law and order, immigration enforcement and border security, and mostly pro-growth economic policies, he wins – convincingly – in a year of political populism and anti-establishment anger.

How To Prevent Voter Fraud

HOW TO PREVENT VOTER FRAUD

(From a Programmer’s Perspective)

by “Griping Grandpa”

There is little doubt that computers can tally votes faster and more efficiently than doing so the old-fashioned way. However, computers also have a dangerous liability. They can be doctored more easily to falsify the results and only the programmers who have access to the software will be able to tell.

vote

Here are some suggestions on how to guard against such fraud.

When a voter casts a vote, two receipts should be printed – one is deposited into a sealed bin for manual audit purposes and the other one is for the voter. Both receipts carry the same serial number and show which candidate was voted for.

While each serial number is unique, the numbers are issued in a scrambled order, rather than sequentially. This is to preserve voter privacy – for example, if Bill is right behind Joe in the voting line, Bill won’t be able to figure out Joe’s serial number and who he voted for.

After the voting station closes, a list is published online, which bears the name of the voting station and shows all the serial numbers issued in numerical order with the candidate voted for. That way anyone who voted can look up their serial number and verify that their vote was correctly recorded. The list should be issued as a spreadsheet and presented in a way that makes it easy to tally the total number of votes cast for each candidate. The list should also contain a hotline phone number and email address to report any perceived irregularities.

Each voting station issues such a list, each with its own unique identification code. A list representing all voting stations and showing each station’s results when available is also published online for anyone with Internet access to inspect. All of these lists are downloadable, but stored on secure sites to prevent interference from hackers.

For security reasons, the computer at the voting station is isolated from the Internet until after the station closes, at which time it connects briefly to upload the list to a secure server and, after verifying that the server has the correct data, automatically shuts down. The computer equipment and the sealed bin with the voting tickets are then immediately taken to a pre-arranged official secure receiving location.

The voting computers are manufactured by reputable companies, to exact hardware and software specifications (published online for anyone to inspect) and certified by reputable auditing companies to meet the specs and work perfectly. They are then sealed, with the seal to be broken only when the station opens. In the voting station, the only way to access the computer is via the buttons for selecting the candidates. The person in charge at the voting station unseals the unit and follows a check list to ensure everything works properly and then signs off on it.

The above should help ensure that all votes are accounted for and correct, thus taking care of that technical issue. However, there is another issue, which is to ensure that each voter is qualified to vote (US citizen, of voting age, registered, not a felon, etc.) and votes only once. That is a human issue and subject to political vagaries. It is difficult to make the system tamper-proof without possibly preventing some minorities from casting a vote to which they are entitled.

The following scenario is workable. Each person qualified to vote receives a personal printed invitation to vote. The person takes this invitation and a photo ID to a voting station and presents this to a voting official who stamps the invitation after verifying the person, the photo ID and the name on the ticket all match. The stamp voids the ticket, so it can’t be re-used to vote a second time.

The invitation ticket can be obtained at a Post Office, a Police Station, a Court House, or the like. When applying for the invitation, the person needs to present a photo ID and provide their social security number. This information is uploaded to a central database, which establishes that the person qualifies and has not already received an invitation. The invitation is printed and the person signs for it. This will require a box, similar to a credit card processor, with a keypad and a printer and an Internet connection. For extra security a scanner can be included to scan the photo ID. If the person does not qualify to vote, a message to that effect is printed, with the reason why.

everyvotecounts

As you can see, this is quite an elaborate system. It will be pretty costly. But think of this: If we are to take voting seriously, then it is only right to take voting fraud prevention seriously as well.
