Uncommon Common Ground

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Lately, I have been regaled with the vile vulgarities emanating from the cult of Trump, as cult 1though they believe that myself, and so many others will somehow be swayed by their rabid blindness and suddenly become as complacent as they, themselves are, and simply out of a mixture of sheer anger and blathering moral bankruptcy, cast our votes for their chosen liberal fool.

It’s not going to happen.

We, those of us in the #NEVERTRUMP #NEVERHILLARY #NEVERBERNIE camp, have something that the cult of Trump will never have…

Respect.

First, we have self-respect. We true Conservatives, have stood proudly and unwaveringly for the Constitution, for the very foundation of Conservatism, for the true vision and legacy entrusted to us by our Founders and Framers and we have steadfastly defended the notion that what is needed, at this most critical of moments with regard to our history and our future, is a true, Constitutional Conservative.

But, far more important than our self-respect…

Trump’s “John Miller” Con…Exposed

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Back in 1991, Donald J. Trump was giving interviews to magazines and newspapers. That miller 1in and of itself, is not surprising. But he was giving those interviews, not as Donald J. Trump…but as Donald Trump’s PR spokesman…John Miller.

In fact, in a court case in 1990, Trump admitted, under oath, that he sometimes posed as John Miller or John Baron…concocted PR representatives for himself.

Add to that, the fact that Trump, as Miller, once gave an interview to People magazine where he said some rather off-the-cuff things regarding Marla Maples and Carla Bruni. The reporter, suspecting that she had, in fact, been talking to Trump himself, played that recorded interview FOR Maples and she IDENTIFIED the voice on the tape AS Donald Trump.

Now, fast forward 25 years, to just a day or two ago, when in a telephone interview on the Today Show, when confronted with the leaked tape of the Miller interview…Trump claimed it WASN’T him and he didn’t even know a thing ABOUT this John Miller thing.

“No, I don’t think it — I don’t know anything about it. You’re telling me about it for the first time and it doesn’t sound like my voice at all. I have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice and then you can imagine that, and this sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams — doesn’t sound like me.”

Trump then continued…

Trump and Hillary…One and the Same

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

For the better part of the last 10 months, Donald Trump’s blind followers have been vile in per 1their comments directed at any candidate who dared to challenge their presumptive dictator and equally as vile toward anyone who dared to support any other candidate than Trump.

Trump has called Carly Fiorina ugly, called Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, ugly and unbalanced, has compared Ben Carson to a child molester, Demeaned Marco Rubio, Called Ted Cruz a liar, insinuated that Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination, had false stories planted that Cruz himself was having 5 affairs, demeaned Jeb Bush, blamed 9-11 on George Bush, incited riots, encouraged his followers to commit violence while offering to pay their legal fees for doing so, mocked Scott Walker for NOT raising taxes and accused Ted Cruz of being the Zodiac killer.

Naturally, Trump’s blind followers picked up every bit of this rubbish and immediately spread it all over social media.

Now, as Trump closes in on the nomination…his blind followers are blaming those whom they so vilely attacked for the past 10 months for splitting the party. It’s OUR fault, according to the Trumpers, that the party is now split six ways from Sunday. WE’RE to blame…or so THEY say.

Really?

Trumpenomics – A Disaster in the Making

When it comes to trade, and trade deals, Trump’s low-information following is all about en 1their candidate’s plans. They love his tough talk and his bloviations regarding China and Mexico…about how he intends to “make America great again,” by imposing stiff, 45% tariffs on our trade partners if they don’t straighten out and let us win.

It sure sounds good, unless of course, one looks into the details and has a shred of common sense about them.

What Trump is proposing is economic nationalism. America first and to hell with everybody else. If Mexico and China don’t do exactly what Trump and his low-information followers want, Trump…should he become the president, will stick it to them but good with 45% taxes on any products that either country tries to send to the United States.

But that’s not all…

Trump has also made it quite clear that he would also slam high taxes on American companies that have already located in foreign countries or those who are thinking about doing so thus intimidating them into NOT relocating, or making doing business FROM a foreign country so pricey that they will be FORCED to return home to America.

As I said…sounds good to the low-information crowd but…

Trump – Unfit to Serve…Part 2 of 2

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Yesterday, in “Trump – Unfit to Serve…Part 1 of 2” I outlined several recent events and dic 1Donald Trump’s reactions to them while also touching upon Trump’s more generally known characteristics of being narcissistic, arrogant and demeaning.

But to really, truly grasp the inner workings of Donald Trump’s mindset, which is more psychosis than mindset, we most look at other character traits he possesses.

While Trump’s followers applaud these traits, and excuse them as being not politically correct, others don’t care for his behavioral traits, are annoyed by them, or are repulsed by them. It has been well-known for some time that Trump’s unfavorable ratings were quite high but just a couple of days ago, new polling suggests that his unfavorable ratings have now reached 70% which is historically, a record high since this data has been compiled dating back to 1992.

Before I provide some of Trump’s more basic characteristics, it should also be noted that although Trump is currently the front runner in the 2016 Republican race, his numbers are the lowest since 1980 which, as you will soon see, plays a vital role in his behavior.

Everybody, it seems, has an opinion of Donald Trump, and like him or dislike him…his basic traits are the linchpin which guides all of our feelings toward him.

Trump – Unfit to Serve…Part 1 of 2

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

I believe that Donald Trump is on the cusp of losing the Republican nomination and I psy 1believe he knows it which is why he has turned the blame factor up to full blast but who is really to blame?

Nobody but Donald J. Trump.

Trump’s narcissistic ego disallows any acceptance of self-blame, and his bombast flows over to his followers who have become so emotionally invested in Trump that they simply can’t handle or accept simple facts.

And there are plenty of facts.

Let’s take Colorado as an example…Trump’s followers are all over social media blaming Ted Cruz for Trump’s zero delegates, and they’re acting like this was something concocted BY Cruz at the last minute and that Cruz behaved unethically in winning all 34 of Colorado’s delegates.

Here are the facts…

I’ll Stand With the Constitutional Conservative

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

A few days ago, I was told, in no uncertain terms by one of Donald Trump’s blind followers to, cru 1take my support for Cruz and “stick it!”

She failed to say where but she was clear in that she simply didn’t want to read the truth about Trump, and in that respect, she is not alone as Trump’s followers just don’t seem to be capable of handling the truth.

I have always said that if one really wants to know what liberals are up to, just look at what they accuse Conservatives of doing. If there is a liberal handbook, I suggest that blaming conservatives for exactly what the liberal is doing is on page one.

Before the final tally from Wisconsin was in, but after it was clear that Ted Cruz would post a double digit victory there, Donald Trump issued another signature tantrum in which he accused Cruz of a crime directly related to this election.

Trump accused Cruz of coordinating directly with his Super Pacs which is in direct violation of election law and he did so without providing any details, without naming any witnesses and without even the slightest shred of evidence and while many regard such an allegation as little more than sour grapes, the incessant whining of one who acts like a 2 year old who didn’t get his way…I suggest there is much more to it than that.

Trump Substitutes Fantasy for Substance

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

While Donald Trump has said that, “I’m capable of changing to anything I want to non 1change to,” is has become obvious that what he meant was that he’s able to pander to whoever he wants to but he has shown, all too often, that he has no intention at all of changing.

Over the past two weeks, Trump has launched frivolous and baseless attacks against Heidi Cruz, the baseless National Enquirer rubbish smelled of his hair gel and Mexican made clothing line,  issued multiple statements regarding his multiple positions on abortion, had a disastrous, nationally televised town hall appearance in which he contradicted himself over and over again while naming education and healthcare as two of the three primary functions of government and had his Chinese made campaign hat handed to him by Wisconsin talk radio host Charlie Sykes.

But change?

No, Donald Trump hasn’t changed one little bit and that is exactly why he got pummeled in the Wisconsin primary Tuesday night. Further evidence of Trump’s inability to change was evident  in a statement released by his campaign after Tuesday night’s utter defeat in Wisconsin…

Trump’s Liberal Agenda, Money Trail – Part 2 of 2

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Since 2011, Donald Trump has given some $358.700 to Republicans, that much is true tru 1and a figure oft cited by his blind following so as to offset any mention of Trump’s donations to liberals but it falls completely flat when put in factual perspective.

As matters of easily researched public records, Donald Trump has stood for and financially supported liberals and the liberal agenda to a point his followers would much rather not admit.

To be exact…between 1989 and 2010, Trump’s political donations were nearly evenly split between both sides of the aisle with slightly more, $314,300.00 going to the left than the $290,600 that he donated to the right but that all changed radically as Trump himself became more immersed in political aspirations of his own.

After Trump’s inglorious presidential run on the Reform ticket in 2000, Donald J. Trump and his son, Donald Jr., donated $77,200.00 to liberals compared to only $24,250.00 to Republicans during the 2006 midterm elections.

But there’s more…much more…
