Did Donald Trump’s disgusting comments about his ability to
take sexual advantage of women seeking stardom because he was a superstar
Yes... but it also bothered me to learn that Paul Ryan’s love
life is dominated by liberal women who tell him what liberal causes he must
support. It bothered me to learn that Ryan’s judgment about love and women led
him to one long-term girlfriend who confessed to
crimes of fraud and spent jail time for them. It was a
loooong time ago... just like Trump's comments.
If you’re going to judge Donald Trump by his apparent
values, you must use the same standards for others because a double standard
makes you a hypocrite. As I recall my New Testament, the only thing that made
Jesus Christ angry was the hypocrites at the Temple making money off of those
who came to worship, selling them doves they promised would gain them God's forgiveness.
Trump’s vulgarity didn’t bother me more than four dead
Americans in Benghazi – especially after Ambassador Chris Stevens sent 600
requests to Hillary Clinton for help and she chose to ignore him.
Murder is one of the Ten Commandments; vulgar language is
It didn’t bother me any more than Hillary being forced to
return $200,000 of stolen goods to the White House when the Clintons left
office in 2000. White House furnishings belong to you and me.
Stealing is one of the Ten Commandments; vulgar language is
not. Murder and stealing represent actions actually taken. Vulgar talk does
Trump’s unlawfully video taped conversation didn’t bother me
any more than memories of the murder (or was it suicide?) of Vince Foster, Castle Grande (Whitewater), the trail of
dead bodies that follow the Clintons wherever they
go, and Hillary’s
lies about her investing skills – which are
different than these other known lies.
I’ve read “Thou shall not lie” somewhere... let me think.
People consider Trump’s vulgarity worse than Hillary’s
actual behavior? It is said that we get the government we deserve. I want
Hillary supporters – including Bill Kristol, Mike Lee, John McCain, Paul Ryan,
and all of the other RINOs – to remember that as our country is flushed down
the toilet: Your hand was on the “flush” button.
Trump’s disgusting conversation, taped with an Access
Hollywood interviewer named Billy Bush who is the
nephew of George H.W. Bush (cousin of Jeb),
suggest this conversation was manipulated by Billy Bush, then saved to bring
public when Trump decided to run for the Presidency. After all, he spoke of
running often. We know NBC had the recording for six months and waited until 48 hours before the Sunday night debate to publish it.
The Trump corporation’s female staffing
proves The Donald has more women executives than men and that these women are
very well paid – and logic tells me if he has issues with women they do not
involve his business – or political -- judgment.
The new stories about Trump include him forcing his
attentions on a woman in the first class cabin of an airplane – Cinderella is
I flew first class for many years and know the arm rests,
unlike those in coach, cannot be raised or removed. For him to have done what
she says is impossible... and flight attendants hover over first class
passengers and bad behavior is not tolerated by other first class passengers. A statement that she didn’t mind his attentions as long as they "stayed
above the waist" tells you the moral vacuum inside that head (and the
other actions of which he is accused that occurred below the waist were
impossible because of the seat divider).
This woman’s only flight is one of fancy – and it’s quite
apparent. It makes Hillary look desperate! Desperation keeps your eyes diverted
from her 30 years of failure in public life!
First they produce hard evidence that Trump thinks it’s cool
to use his position of power to seduce women; then they produce liars to say he
did it – and it’s a very believable scenario. Except the stories are incredibly
naïve. And Donald Trump is anything but naïve.
The taping of this conversation also bothers me because the
interview violates California law.
In Colorado or Wisconsin and many other states, it is lawful
to record a conversation if ONE PARTY that is part of the conversation is aware
of the recording. California, however, is a TWO PARTY state in which both
parties taking part in a conversation must be aware something is being
recorded. Otherwise, the recording is illegal.
Of course we all expect DOJ’s Loretta Lynch and the FBI’s
Jim Comey to jump right on the commission of this crime to make sure it is
properly investigated and prosecuted. (Smile)
Clinton has for many years been treated like a son of former President G.H.W.
We all remember George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton joining
forces to collect money for the people of Haiti when they were hit by a violent
earthquake in 2010. Most of us also remember how little of the money was
actually used for the benefit of that earthquake's victims. People still ask:
what happened to all of that money!
As I said, George H.W. and Bill are very close... and both
hate Donald Trump with a passion. After all, it was Trump who made Jeb Bush
look like a piece of over-cooked spaghetti during the Republican primary
debates. Too, George H.W. Bush says he’s voting for Hillary.
The Trump tape upset me and I have asked myself some
1. What is the
difference between being a sinner and being evil? This manipulated circumstance
is a perfect example. Hillary has a video tape showing that Donald Trump, like
all of us, is a sinner. The information available about Hillary Clinton,
however, proves she is evil. There is a huge difference!
2. What do a man’s
vulgar conversations have to do with knowing how to create jobs in the private
sector? For Liberal Democrat readers who don’t know the difference between the
public and private sectors, creating jobs in the private sector means creating
jobs without using public funds (your tax $$). Donald Trump has created
hundreds of thousands of jobs in the private sector. Hillary Clinton has never
created a private sector job. So who do you believe when he or she says they
can create jobs in the private sector?
We can go back to the Presidency of Democrat John F. Kennedy
and find a man with a very checkered past and lack of sensitivity to women and
inappropriate sexual behavior. He was a very successful President... one who
also opposed the shadow government that has been running things since after the
Civil War. It cost him his life. The answer to the question is: The successful
years of John Kennedy prove sexual behavior does not impact a man’s ability to
create jobs and be a good President.
3. What does a man’s
sexual behavior have to do with understanding the need for leadership in
American foreign policy? Democrat President Harry Truman’s well-known loyalty
to his wife Bess and his daughter Margaret prove he had strong ethical views
and moral propriety. Yet, when it came time to make a decision about dropping
atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to save hundreds of thousands of
American soldiers, he said “do it,” knowing it would result in the deaths of thousands
of Japanese civilians. Being moral does not guarantee you will avoid
questionable decisions... nor does having views others consider immoral.
Though Donald Trump’s conversation with Billy Bush is
disgusting, it does not negatively impact his leadership skills. As his
daughter Ivanka and his two sons Donald Junior and Eric say, he has a unique
ability to find the right people to do whatever job needs to be done. It
reminds me a little of David and Bathsheba. David wasn’t perfect, either.
Those Republican members of Congress who walked away from
Trump have no strong definition of the word “loyal” which is a dominant part of
It is obvious that the Paul Ryans and Mike Lees and John
McCains of the political world don’t understand how to define leadership
because if they did they would have shown some of it during the past ten years
and they have not. And that’s why voters are so angry!
The professional politicians are the same people who hate Trump for his stand on illegal aliens – an issue that points out
the failure of establishment Republican legislators. It would have never been
made public without Donald Trump. They tend to forget that Democrat President
Harry Truman, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, and Great Depression
President Herbert Hoover removed huge numbers of illegal aliens to create jobs
for Americans. Statistics are available here: Combat
Veterans for Congress.
4. What does a man’s
conversation about sex have to do with making strong, conservative appointments
to the Supreme Court? Trump has told us who he will appoint. When we look at
the alternatives of Supremes Hillary Clinton might appoint – even Barrack
Obama’s name gets mentioned – it makes apparent how
insignificant the disgusting words of Donald Trump really are -- words which
were unlawfully recorded in the State of California by the cousin of a man
Trump bested in the primary elections.
The release of this video just 48 hours before the
Presidential debates was carefully planned.
It was this realization that made me come to grips with what
initially made me sick to my stomach: If you want a President who is an obvious
liar (or one too mentally devoid of memory to answer many FBI questions
regarding her 33,000 deleted emails), Hillary is your girl. Hillary’s famous “I
don’t remember” comments were also used during Whitewater investigations – and
a faulty memory should disqualify her as a Presidential candidate. She is a
woman with a record of highly disgusting acts of dishonesty and greed (she
doesn't just talk about them, she does them) both as a public servant and as a lawyer... if
that’s your cuppa coffee, vote for Hillary Clinton.
If you want to elect to office someone who’s campaign team
says highly offensive things about Catholics – Hillary, herself, has personally
said Christians must change their views and behavior – vote for Hillary. She is
a candidate who has never created a private sector job and who supports the
very things which cause Americans tremendous pain today – from late-term
abortion to open borders. If that’s your gig, support Hillary Clinton.
The negative reaction of so-called college-educated women to
the Trump tape disgusts me even more than the tape. That you seek security from
a woman who will not hesitate to do anything – anything at all – to gain more
and more power, more and more money – makes me question whether females should
have been given the vote. You are voting (as men have always said you would)
with your emotions, not your brain. You are obviously the product of a school
system that removed critical thinking and logic skills from our public schools
when the new math was introduced into the education system.
No one says you have to personally like your President. In
some ways, Donald Trump is unlikable. What is important is that in the end
analysis you respect your President’s
ability to lead the nation to a stronger economy, a safer society, a return to
our Constitutional Republic and the rule of law that flows from it.
Women voters appear incapable of figuring out that the very
definition of a nation is its borders. If you don’t have borders, you don’t
have a nation. Hillary Clinton has said she is for open borders... the very
definition of George H.W. Bush’s “new world order.” That’s why he’s voting for
These women call themselves educated. Here is the
law that disallows Middle Easterners of the
Islamic faith citizenship in America. Have you read it? It proves Donald Trump
is correct in suggesting we need to study this issue more before letting
unvetted Muslims into our country. Sharia law prevents Muslims from swearing
allegiance to anything other than Sharia Law. That includes the Constitution of
the United States. Our laws say if you cannot swear allegiance to the Constitution
you cannot migrate here.
You’re educated, you say. Have you read what is happening in
nations which have allowed too many Muslims into their nations... Germany,
France, Sweden and others? Is this the violence you want for your daughters?
Once a tyrant puts his or her boot on your neck and tells
you to stop living your faith as a Christian, our way of American life is over.
Once a tyrant brings unlimited numbers of people from a part of the world where
they don’t even know how to use toilet paper (and bring their violence and
diseases to America with them), it’s over.
Over means over. Forever. Goodbye Liberty. So much for
leaving a safe, secure nation for the children you say you love. Rather than
college-educated women, you make voting decisions like insecure little girls
who want to replace the male protection of the 60’s with the government
protection of the New Millennium. Women – real women – find security with faith
which lives within them and they do not need the protection of Big Brother.
Perhaps what we saw that so disappointed us when we saw the
Trump tape is that he is an imperfect human being just like the rest of us.
It is always disappointing to find that our leaders are not
God; they are just people with strengths and weaknesses. It is more disappointing
to see so many Americans willingly – even enthusiastically – support evil.
Is our choice for President of the United States to be made
on the basis of vulgar talk or evil deeds? Admittedly many people wish for
better choices in both parties, but this is what we've got.
