"Remarkably, he (Trump) gives a speech that's now written and that he reads off a telerompter that is as wandering and meandering and incoherent as when he speaks off the cuff."

Ted Cruz's Plan for a Contested Convention

...that is to say, not on the first ballot!

Quote du jour

While my opposition to Trump is not primarily an argument about electability, I’ve been focusing on that angle lately because the establishment opportunists, quislings, sell-outs, pragmatists, and harlots are more persuadable on these grounds than arguments over principle. People open to principled arguments against Trump have already been persuaded.

Could Someone Please Buy Poseur Donald Trump a Clue?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Donald Trump is factually challenged. I guess that's a nice way to speak about his colossal ignorance on so many subjects. For example.

On The O'Reilly factor tonight, Donald Trump said of Afghanistan:
"That's one place frankly instead of going to Iraq we should have probably gone there first".

Except, we did. We invaded Afghanistan in October of 2001, less than one month after the 9-11 attack. The invasion of Iraq was March 20, 2003. Is it the word "first" that's giving you trouble, Donnie? Or have you just not been paying attention to anything that doesn't personally line your pockets?

He was still nattering on with O'Reilly about how we should have and still might seize Iraqi oil and keep it for the US, when I tuned him out. This is a guy who, on one hand, says "America will continue forever to play the role of peacemaker", and then turns around and says we should plunder Iraq's oil.

I noted before on these pages, Trump's shallow or inadequate understanding of the Keystone XL pipeline (August 17, 2015 The Trouble With Trump, Part XXIII)
"I hope we don't need the pipeline, 'cause it comes out of Canada,"
-Trump on Mark Levin's radio show.

To which I replied:

There are probably three things (or more) wrong with this statement. One, it's not just Canadian oil, but oil from our own Bakken range in the Dakotas, as well, that could be more easily and safely transported. Underline "safely". Far too many accidents, spills and oil train derailments from the oil fields to the refineries that could be reduced via a pipeline. Two, when Canada does send oil to our refineries, we add value to it. That's called 'creation of wealth', Mr. Trump. That would happen here in this country. Three, Trump seemingly overlooks the creation of well paying jobs in building and maintaining the pipeline, the refinery jobs and all the ancillary businesses along the way.

I'm glad Trump favors building the Keystone XL extension. I just wish he would do a little more homework, so that he would be more knowledgeable about the good thing he's advocating.

Now Trump speaks without notes a lot, but recently, reading from prepared remarks on a teleprompter, he said the following stupid stuff:

He said "The Trump administration will lead a free world that is properly armed", after threatening to abandon any NATO member nation that did not contribute the proper percentage of their GNP to defense. Is Trump's rationale that as soon as he abandons NATO signatories they will no longer be part of the "free world"?

Trump said he "won't try to spread 'universal values' that not everybody shares or wants". How can they be "universal values" if they are not universal?

In addition, he has a strange definition of the word "military".

"Look at the World Trade Center and Sept. 11th. One of the great catastrophes in my opinion. The single greatest military catastrophe in the history of our country, worse then Pearl Harbor, because you take a look at what what's happened, and citizens were attacked as opposed to the military being attacked."

So, let me see if I follow this. Aside from making the gratuitous reference to 9-11, which he had just shamelessly used to distort what Ted Cruz had said about New York values, Trump thinks 9-11 was a military catastrophe, because civilians were attacked? It was a terrorist attack, not an attack by anyone's military and other than the one plane which targeted the Pentagon, which, to Donald Trump is apparently filled with civilians and located somewhere in the basement of the World Trade Center, the primary targets were civilian.

And it has been noted that one way the Donald ducks answering questions he doesn't know the answer to is to filibuster and then change the subject. He does this a lot.

It's perfectly clear why Trump ducks out of debates to do fund raisers and why he's been running like a scalded dog away from any opportunity to debate Ted Cruz,  because he is a fraud. A phony. A tin horn charlatan who bluffs and blusters his way through life.I have known a number of people who have done quite well for themselves personally by having a gift of gab and a distinct estrangement from being honest. Donnie fits the profile.

God help the United States if this ignoramus were ever to become Commander-in-Chief

Quote du jour

"...Donald J. Trump is the Ronald McDonald of the business world. He’s a face. A brand.

He’s the grand charlatan of public relations and he’s moved his shtick into the political realm, selling snake oil to the low info crowd. Even if he doesn’t win the presidency, he’s pushed his brand, upped his profile, and has enough footage of goofy, reprobate citizens doing and saying idiotic stuff in his name that in syndication alone, the reality TV royalties will rake in a tidy sum."

Medal of Honor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Specialist Kyle Jerome White


For gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a radio telephone operator with Company C, 2d Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade during combat operations against an armed enemy in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan on 9 November 2007. On that day, Specialist White and his comrades were returning to Bella Outpost from a shura with Aranas village elders. As the soldiers traversed a narrow path surrounded by mountainous, rocky terrain, they were ambushed by enemy forces from elevated positions. Pinned against a steep mountain face, Specialist White and his fellow soldiers were completely exposed to enemy fire.
Specialist White returned fire and was briefly knocked unconscious when a rocket-propelled grenade impacted near him. When he regained consciousness, another round impacted near him, embedding small pieces of shrapnel in his face. Shaking off his wounds, Specialist White noticed one of his comrades lying wounded nearby. Without hesitation, Specialist White exposed himself to enemy fire in order to reach the soldier and provide medical aid. After applying a tourniquet, Specialist White moved to an injured Marine, providing aid and comfort until the Marine succumbed to his wounds.
Specialist White then returned to the soldier and discovered that he had been wounded again. Applying his own belt as an additional tourniquet, Specialist White was able to stem the flow of blood and save the soldier’s life. Noticing that his and the other soldiers’ radios were inoperative, Specialist White exposed himself to enemy fire yet again in order to secure a radio from a deceased comrade. He then provided information and updates to friendly forces, allowing precision airstrikes to stifle the enemy’s attack and ultimately permitting medical evacuation aircraft to rescue him, his fellow soldiers, Marines, and Afghan army soldiers.
Specialist Kyle J. White. Extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, Company C, 2d Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, and the United States Army.

Specialist White: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy nine living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”
