In this article, I will outline 5 reasons Donald Trump is the leader Barack Obama could only hope to be. Notice that I will not be talking about Hillary Clinton in any great depth. She is so bad, she doesn’t rate high enough to get anything more than a casual mention.

  1. Trump weathers the storm in good times and bad: Donald Trump is a survivor as we can clearly see. In business, which was hard for everybody, Trump weathers the storm where others fail. Sure, he’s had companies in bankruptcy, but he has cut his losses and restructured, coming out ahead at the end of the day. His businesses employ many people in good paying jobs. Barack Obama has never hired a soul for a single job that wasn’t connected to government and paid for by taxes.
  2. Donald Trump is a successful reality TV star who has used his star power to mentor others and create more business. People who did well on the show have done well in business, benefitting from Trump’s tutelage. Obama has mentored no one, and no one around him has created a successful business that didn’t find its primary funding outside of government. Indeed, Obama used government funds to prop up so-called green businesses at the tax payer expense, all of which have failed, costing the taxpayer billions.
  3. Donald Trump is a successful author whose book is a blue print for successful business leaders. Obama’s book is a sad diatribe over race and equality, a fictional account about why he is locked in to the vision of an imaginary father he never knew and can’t relate to. At the end of the day, Barack didn’t even write his book, it was ghost written by Bill Ayers, so there you go, he can’t even claim his own book as an accomplishment.
  4. Barack Obama can’t succeed in anything unless he uses race as a weapon or he’s lying about who he really is. He’s got everything he has under false pretenses or claiming victim hood. Trump meanwhile used a modest initial investment from his father and created a billion dollar business that has proven successful for the long term. He won an election that was rigged against him at every turn, cheer leaded by a media establishment who supported the other candidate and lied about who he is and what he stands for.
  5. Barack Obama is a divider. He’s got the whole country in turmoil with regards to race, religion and gender. His enemies are still his enemies. Trump is a unifier. People who opposed him on his election are now working with him on common goals. He has a diverse staff that includes a woman who ran his campaign, and a brain surgeon who found a half trillion dollar government financing mistake in the first week of office. He’s sent enemies clear messages warning them of consequences of messing with the US, like Syria and North Korea. Illegal immigration rates are down and many criminal illegals are already being deported. He has put in place a conservative Supreme Court Justice and is keeping his campaign promises. Obama only gave lip service to his promises, with very little positive result.

Now let’s make a clear distinction between Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton. Hilary is nothing but a 2-time failed candidate. She is by no means the leader off the Democrat party. Barack Obama in contrast is charismatic and active, all of the party’s failures and successes have come about because of him. But there is nothing he has accomplished that cannot be undone by the stroke of Trump’s pen. All of those executive orders he wrote: gone. And as for his signature accomplishment, Obamacare. If it doesn’t collapse under its own weight, which it surely will, it will be replaced by the congress. The Democrat party under defacto leader Barack Obama lies in flaming ruin.

So there you have it, my five top reasons Trump is the leader Obama only hopes he could be. Let me know if you think I am all wet. People praising me on being right are welcome too. Comment below.

Why I think Ted Cruz Should be President of the United States, (and not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton!)

This column’s purpose is to explain why I endorse Ted Cruz for president of the United States and not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, and I hope to articulate why he can be as great as Ronald Reagan.

 

The American Millennium has obtained a full copy of Ted Cruz’s college thesis entitled Clipping the Wings of Angels, which speaks at length about the purposes of the 9th and Tenth amendments to the constitution. In the document Ted explains why it is so necessary to limit the power of government at the federal level and in all possible circumstances return that power to the states or the people. I wish I had permission to release the whole document online so that you can see for yourself the loving way Ted refers to the constitution, but unfortunately I have not been able to secure permission. When Ted is elected president as I hope he will, this should be the first document to be enshrined forever in his presidential library, somewhere in his home state of Texas. The language he uses to refer to the constitution is so laudatory and at times a little dorky. You can see his love of the law and especially the cornerstone of American Law, the US Constitution.

 

See, unlike the other candidates, Ted Cruz is not in this race for is own gain. He is different in that he doesn’t seek to create a cult of personality like the other candidates; rather he desires to show the people again that our greatness as a people is our adherence in the rule of law and in our commonality with one another. If there is equal protection under the law, if there is fairness and not an over abundance of regulation, if the federal government refrains from always trying to pick winners and losers then the US economy will recover, on Wall Street as well as main street.

 

When you see Ted speak, some might be turned off by his seemingly inauthentic smile. There is an article that I think accurately explains why some are uneasy with it. He’s like me in that he has the kind of smile that goes the wrong way that might even scare little children. People want to see someone’s face behave a certain way when they smile and if it doesn’t, they don’t quite trust that person. I get that a lot, so I understand it. To understand how Ted Cruz is in person, one should observe him in his candid moments when he is not in front of a camera. The polish comes off, he is more authentic, less controlled, the real Ted comes out. There are photos of Ted Cruz playing with his kids during moments when he is taking a break from the campaign. That is the Ted I trust. He is a man who has time for his children even though he is busy with a very important campaign.

 

What does Trump with his spare time? Has he ever smiled? Trump is like Barack Obama in that his support is a cult of personality. He is enshrined behind massive walls of people who only tell him what he wants to hear; his political speech has resonated with people concerned about jobs, the economy, the border and immigration. He has tapped into the anger of Americans. But he has not articulated a vision of where he wants to take this country. Trump is a caricature of himself. He always repeats the same words in every speech. “We’re going to make America great again. We’re going to build a wall. It’s going to be a high wall. It’s going to be huge! We are going to win again, even against China!” He says China a lot. When asked about specifics, he has none, because he doesn’t have a plan. All he knows is that it will be “great” if he is president.

 

Hillary Clinton in contrast is a liar, a thief and a phony. There is no reason anyone should let the Clinton’s back in the White House. They are power hungry and corrupt and she particularly is unlikeable. Why would people in government ever want her as a boss? When Hillary Clinton was First Lady there is talk that people avoided her in the halls. She didn’t want to deal with people, she was terrible, and when she wandered the halls, people would duck into their offices to avoid having to deal with her. She is unpleasant, even with her staff!

 

When Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she denied military support for her trusted employees on a difficult mission to Libya where the ambassador and his staff were in constant threat of attack. Watch the You Tube video we created of Rand Paul talking about his questions laid before her on whether or not she read the cables from the ambassador begging for more security help. Hillary granted many requests for frivolous improvements to other embassies, but when it came to enhancing the security of staff, she had no time for it. It is for this reason that we agree with Rand Paul; Hillary Clinton should be permanently precluded from holding public office.

Hillary has always been under tight control. Don’t bother to try to read her college thesis on Saul Alinksi, even though I think even as a conservative, it would be fascinating. Only the privileged are allowed into that college library to read the vaunted document. Barack Obama’s thesis was so hideous; his college advisor threw it out in the trash. So don’t try to dig too deep into their history. You won’t find much of substance.

 

Hillary Clinton has spent her life in the world of politics. She understands it better than any other one thing. And she has been dishonest and corrupt from the start. Members of her own party threw her off the Nixon investigation because she attempted to break the rules and acted in an unethical and unprofessional manner. Piles of bodies of people once loyal to the Clintons are strewn around so much so that if they were in a room together you might think there was a war or terrorist bombing. If you have something on the Clintons and if it worries them, you can find yourself going missing, a victim of suicide, and your house and personal affects gone through, your personal documents destroyed. That is the real Hillary Clinton.

 

As for Bill Clinton, who in their right mind wants him wandering around the White House with nothing to do? He is a serial rapist and molester, he can’t keep his hands off the women and they don’t even necessarily have to be pretty. He would be a national embarrassment if they were allowed to return to Washington.

 

Ted Cruz is not the sexiest most interesting candidate out there today. But he is the one who has the potential to return the nation to the right path. He has a reputation for defending us and our rights in front of the US Supreme Court as solicitor general of Texas and he has won every time. He has protected our religious freedoms, our freedom of speech and our right to self-protection under the Second Amendment. Everyone else still in this race has fought to empower the federal government, not limit it, not return power to the people.

 

John Kasich is a joke and should get out of the race. He is a republican who believes that government can solve every problem. Ted Cruz is with Ronald Reagan in that he believes government is the problem.

 

Marco Rubio is a good man with a great story and a hopeful vision for the future. He made a mistake with the immigration issue as a member of the gang of eight and the voters punished him for it. I don’t think he is done with politics. For now perhaps, but his supporters can be reassured that Ted Cruz is the only conservative still in the race who upholds their values and will take their cause. They should throw their support to him now and with luck, Ted Cruz will be the next president of the United States.

 

A word to republican leaders who talk about a “brokered convention”. Don’t do it. If neither Ted nor Donald get the required number of delegates to seal the nomination that’s fine. Let the delegates haggle at the convention. It’s supposed to be a convention after all, not a coronation. Let the delegates decide and they will select the best candidate for the voters. But don’t, don’t, don’t bend the rules to select someone who had fewer delegates than Ted or Donald, or hasn’t even darkened the campaign trail this cycle. Don’t! If you think that it is you and not the American voter who decides on who is worthy to lead this party, if you think your opinion matters more than ours and you select rather than elect a candidate then I swear to you as a veteran of this nation’s wars that I will get as many friends together and I will burn you out. We will drag you out of your offices, we will burn your buildings, we will banish you from Cleveland and from Washington. We are not the Democrats. We have no super delegates. We trust our voters.

 

I am a veteran. I swore an oath to defend our constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. My brigade spent the longest number of consecutive days in combat in Iraq, longer than any other unit. The division of which that brigade is a part spend the most number of consecutive days in combat in World War II. When we were in Iraq we monitored and secured free elections in that country, where they didn’t have it for many years. We built schools where girls for the first time in a very long while had the right to an education just like the boys. We built power plants, water treatment plants, schools! We did that for people we didn’t know. How can you assume that having spent so much blood and sweat to secure the future of that country that we would just roll over and let other people steal our future here in our own country. We were extended for the surge and we were winning when I left. Government bureaucrats squandered the success we had there. We are not going to let unelected leaders steal away our future here in our own back yard. So if you want to have a future, obey the will of the delegates and the voters or we will come after you. We took an oath, and since we retired and left the service, no one has relieved us of that oath. We will camp out in Cleveland and in Washington and we will make your lives hell, I swear!

 

At the end of the day I would rather have Donald Trump be our candidate if it is the will of the people. But if some one emerges from the convention that spent no time on the campaign trail and he or she is nominated, then the electoral process means nothing and we’ve lost our Republic any way. Might as well burn it all down and start fresh. But it doesn’t have to come to that. The party can do the right thing, and the convention can be allowed to work. It must. In the end, who ever emerges from the convention has a better chance to lead the country than Hillary Clinton, and I believe, the only adult in the room, Ted Cruz is the right man to lead our nation into the future.
