This mornings news about Trump's status is getting even more dire, as more and more Republicans are pulling away. Trump has no campaign staff other than 4 advance men. So he is making all the campaign decisions about responding to opponents and media, and we haven't yet gotten to the general election campaign.I'm not sure what you're saying here. If Trump is in fact a Maccabee type, then isn't it to be expected that he will appeal to his nationalist base for the election? In fact, one might expect him only to show his true globalist colors, and to betray his electorate, at those moments when the chips are down.
The important thing here, in regards to a Maccabee comparison is that he has won the number of delegate votes to win the nomination, despite that he was not supposed to do so by conventional wisdom. Not even close. Now, because he has 'won' fair and square (as the masons would say) the Republicans will have to figure out some means to explain why they are going to pull the plug and replace Trump with a candidate whom the electorate has already shown tepid support, at best.
The only other option for Trump it seems, is indeed a Trump favoring 9/11. This might put him in Julius Caesar's league.
Yes, as I just answered to Loren. They always win, because both candidates are their own. But, what you are missing is the necessary element of Machiavellian show biz to convince his base that his is really on their side. All demagogues must play this role. Remember that George Wallace was not a 'huuuge' racist, but only portrayed one for the sake of his base.This seems to be true, but only in the sense that the globalists win regardless of whether Hillary or Trump prevails in the election?
Again, Trump's race nationalism appeal is phony, he is a (L)iberal who has bamboozled the race nationalists and other goobers. This just like Reagan and the Bushes snowed the evangelicals.I still feel there's some possibility that Trump might turn out to be a true nationalist, but the question is whether racist nationalism is an acceptable basis to challenge the globalist empire. And we've talked before about Trump's many expected strengths in national debates with Hillary. And we can't completely discount the possibility that Hillary could get indicted. Making predictions is hard, especially about the future, and especially when you're not an insider.
I agree that it is impossible for us to predict the outcome even yet. The only thing that is sure for me that all this is rigged on both sides, as usual.
