ESTABLISHMENT FREAKOUT IN FULL EFFECT …
|| By FITSNEWS || The whackier his antics get, the more ground he picks up … and the more ground he picks up, the more the political establishment freaks out.
This has been the dynamic of the Donald Trump for president campaign … decried by the “Republican” establishment as a sideshow for “crazies,” yet clearly tapping into something far bigger than itself in terms of an American electorate fed up with the same old “bipartisansh*t.”
Eager to diminish those undercurrents, the liberal Des Moines Register got into the action this week – publishing an editorial calling on Trump to withdraw from the presidential race.
You know, even though he’s got a double-digit lead on the rest of the GOP field.
Here’s an excerpt from the paper’s screed …
In the five weeks since he announced his campaign to seek the GOP nomination for president, Trump has been more focused on promoting himself, and his brand, than in addressing the problems facing the nation. If he were merely a self-absorbed, B-list celebrity, his unchecked ego could be tolerated as a source of mild amusement. But he now wants to become president, which means that he aspires to be the leader of the free world and the keeper of our nuclear launch codes.
That is problematic, because Trump, by every indication, seems wholly unqualified to sit in the White House. If he had not already disqualified himself through his attempts to demonize immigrants as rapists and drug dealers, he certainly did so by questioning the war record of John McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona.
First of all, John McCain is a miserable excuse for an elected official. Aside from being an unrepentant fiscal liberal and suppressor of free speech, he’s the chief architect of a boneheaded interventionist foreign policy which has killed at least 7,000 Americans, cost taxpayers trillions of dollars and made the United States exceedingly vulnerable to the threat of an enemy of its own making.
So screw him …
But as for the bigger allegation – that Trump is somehow unfit for office because he lacks a filter – that’s precisely the sort of ridiculous conclusion that comes from being panicked.
“Officially the Register’s position was simply in escalation to the furor over the real estate magnate’s weekend comments about Sen. John McCain’s service during the Vietnam War,” the website Zero Hedge noted. “Unofficially, it is called throwing everything at the wall and hoping something sticks.”
That’s what the two-party establishment is doing to Trump right now … throwing everything it can against him. The goal? Reestablishing the same old bland, scripted political debate in which their tired talking points and recycled “solutions” can be parroted and re-parroted by the same old talking heads.
To what end? So American can get deeper in debt, weaker at its borders, more deprived in its people’s liberties and more sluggish in its economic growth?
Of course the two-party establishment wants Trump to drop out. He’s thumbing his nose at them. And sucking up political oxygen that’s typically reserved for their status quo mouthpieces.
In other words they want to return to a campaign they can control.
Go Trump! Don’t go away.
There is still a lot more turmoil to cause, division to carve, reputations to sully.
Stay the course!
Who in his right mind would take any advice from Iowa anyway?
Not a surprising comment from someone that thinks he has all the answers.
You’ve posted far more than me. You must think you have something worthwhile to say. Though I contest the notion.
You sound kinda like the Donald.
Dullards often group their enemies, no matter how diverse.
Must have struck a nerve but Donald would have used Stupid, to reach the masses.
Donald is Big Stupid meets Big Money.
All your victories are self-proclaimed I’m sure. A simple shallow lamer with delusions of adequacy.
Who in the hell would take any advice from Iowa, New Hampshire or South Carolina when we know what we know about SC? Those other states are no more sane or less corrupt.
But, we let three states determine who gets to run for president…apparently out of habit.
I’ll be dead honest with you…I couldn’t find Iowa on a map, mostly because i’ve never really had a reason to look for it.
Soft Sigh from Hell thinks he knows everything and you just proved you don’t.

Yeah, like Balochistan, who would care?
Don’t you ever eat corn?
Exactly where did you think it came from?
The very best corn comes Zellwood, Florida and from around the southern shores of Lake Okeechobee!
Actually, i DON’T eat corn. Any food that looks the same going in that it does coming out skeeves me out a little.
And the chorus begins. Won’t be long till the republicans run him out.
Oh please keep trump and put him on the ticket – we need solid majorities to continue with secular humanism, clear separation of church and state, dismantling structural racism, gender equality policies and a revamp of the primary and secondary education.
Hillary can get us partly there…
I thought the democrats loved what trump is doing to the GOP and here is a liberal paper calling for him to drop out. How can this be? Are the liberals scared of what he will do to Hillary when she claims amnesia or that she simply doesn’t remember. I can’t wait to hear Trump go at her on Benghazi.
Where the hell am I, Mommy?

Oh please let Trump speak on gay marriage next and then abortion. Furthermore he should tell us why women should not reeive the same pay as men and then we need to know his position on separation of church and state….also: would he reinstate the Cuban embargo? What does he really think of Europeans…so much to explore and learn from him….
Uh, Trump is pro-abortion
He has changed sides on that issue.
“Trump has recently said numerous times that he is pro-life on abortion and that he changed his views from supporting abortion to pro-life based on his relationships with close personal friends who had children. Their pregnancy experiences, Trump maintains, allowed him to mature on the abortion issue to the point of now opposing abortion.”
For any Newspaper or Media outlet call for Trump to drop out after the Misery and problems Obama and the Democrats have caused is ludicrous.

Does Will know the dot thing isn’t working?
Trump is hitting the roaches where they live. Maybe we could call him “Raid”!
Does anyone listen to what papers say these days?
Certainly not “The State”. I haven’t been to their site in so long, I couldn’t honestly tell you if that clusterphuck is still running or not. I see they still litter my yard and others up and down my street with their nuisance litter so unfortunately, I guess they are still in business.
Donald Trump is breakin’ all the rules. He has decided to announce his running mate before the primaries begin. Trump will be introducing Todd Akin as his Vice-presidential running mate Sunday.
Wonder what they would say Teddy “Rough Rider” Roosevelt & “Give ’em hell” Harry Truman were running today.

Play the Trump Card and watch the Cockroaches scatter
Trump,”He got arrested, was crusified and died poor. Jesus was a loser. I like winners.”
Trump: “Davy Crocket was a fucking loser who died letting Mexicans cross the border.”
Trump: Abraham Lincoln was a total loser who loved plays more than living.
Trump: We know who the unknown soldier was. He was a loser. Simple. LOSER.
Trump: flight 93 passengers were “losers” who “couldn’t figure out how to fly planes
Trump: Captain Sully was a fucking loser who drowned an expensive airplane.
Trump: Neil Armstrong was a fucking loser. Just sat in a seat & walked down step
Trump: fuck Hawaii they let the Japs bomb Pearl Harbor
Donald Trump is going to sever the link between country club Republicans and Applebee Republicans.
The Koch Brothers have been buying influence in Iowa for years. No doubt this is the Koch cashing in chips to begin their anti-trump campaign.
They have begun attacking Turumo here in SC using the Concerned Veterans for America, and They will follow up with more and diverse attacks on Trump.
“So screw him …”
The Trump mini-me has arrived!
Donald Trump – proof that and ass hat with money is still an ass hat…
Hoping he stays in the race long enough to participate in a debate. Maybe then all these idiots backing him will see how foolish they’ve been.
You will get your wish.
I hope he gets to the primaries and does so much national and international damage – being identified as no different from the UK UKIP and the Le Pens in France – to the once GOP that it will take them decades to recover.
Explain the international damage caused by Le Pens failed candidacies and UKIP in the UK.
It never looks good for a Western nation’s fascist/neo-Nazi sliver of the population to be exposed.
We in the West are such moralists – as, opposed to being moral – the rest of the people on the planet get to point and snicker about what hypocrites we are.
Lol. Only a liberal would consider snickering international damage needing decades to recover from. Maybe we need to hold an international bullying conference to teach the world not to snicker at people because it hurts their feelings.
Conservatives are too busy snickering over Kenyan Muslim Socialists to snicker abroad.
The Colonel does have the ability or know how to make 10 Billion dollars. After all, he has depended on the government to fed him. Hence, a government baby.
Dude, I am an Army Reserve Officer – for 20 of the last 23 years, my monthly reserve pay has amounted to a car payment and dinner out a couple of times. The other three years I was living in countries far from here, with people who don’t much care for Americans, making about the same amount of money I make when I’m home.
I don’t think you drop out when you’re leading, do you?
“…he’s (McCain) the chief architect of a boneheaded interventionist foreign policy which has killed at least 7,000 Americans..”
Uuhhh, no. McCain (and, Graham) are not architects of a single solitary thing. They are followers, blind, simpering, wetting their pants, fear mongering followers of the neo-con war criminal architects Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and their handlers like Wolfowitz, Kristol, AIPAC et. al., who are now pushing for rejection of the P5+1 Iran nuclear weapons deal.
How many times and how many American deaths will it take for Americans to stop listening to this same bunch?
And Karl Rove, don’t forget Karl Rove! Oh, I forgot Libs are loving them some Karl since he is attacking Trump. Politics definitely makes for strange bedfellows.
Baby, as dumb as I think George Bush is, I bet even he knew better than to let a political hack like Karl Rove make decisions on going to war.
And, if he thought about it, Cheney would have slapped the shit out of him.
And don’t forget Hillary Clinton. She is part of it too.
Remember how now former SC Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell and his cronies acted when the heat was on? Was their rage not that of criminals who were threatened? Did they not go on a mission to destroy anyone who was a threat to their corrupt empire? Same thing here. Washington is threatened BIG time by Trump winning. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind and the minds of millions who know what the deal really is, that if Trump gets full unrestricted access to everything the NSA has on these rogues – everything the FBI has on them. who will go to prison? Lindsey Graham? John Boehner? Valerie Jarrett? Joe Bide? Obama himself?
Only a really stupid dumb ass would not suspect this is the reason these people have all pulled their wagons into formation of the circle built up around Washington, DC to protect it. If you were doing criminal felony wrongs, threatened by a man who could destroy your life if he gets elected, would you not try to destroy him – like Bobby Harrell and his criminal thugs tried with Alan Wilson?
Up Next in main stream media, watch Drudge Report closely. Calls for Obama to be prosecuted and sent to prison are about to be reported.
OK Tango – I’ll bite. Since you have to done something illegal and he hasn’t – what for? What a looosa!!!
Remember, there was no violence last week. To say otherwise is to be a racist.
From the Des Moine Register editorial, “In just five weeks, he has polluted the political waters to such an
extent that serious candidates who actually have the credentials to
serve as president can’t get their message across to voters.”
Maybe that’s because news organization won’t give time or press to those other candidates, and choose to reports Trump instead. There are now 15 other GOP candidates. The Register editors could have published an editorial on the messages of any of them, instead. The report on Trump to the exclusion of other candidates because Trump attracts Click, Viewers, and Listeners.
