… NOW WHAT?
|| By FITSNEWS || What didn’t kill “The Donald” only made him stronger …
Surprise “Republican” presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at him over the last few months by the U.S. political-media establishment.
Such an aggressive offensive would have killed off any other candidate …
Take a look here …

There’s no other way to put it: Trump is tonning it, leaving the two-faced “Republican” establishment scratching its collective head.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin – who has written the definitive piece on the campaign to defeat “The Donald” – Trump’s GOP rivals have decided “to go with an amalgamation of ‘deals and females,’ on the theory that those are Trump’s twin vices and the opposition could use those issues to at least pry away some parts of his current coalition and bring his poll numbers down closer to the pack.”
All of it so Jeb Bush – a guy who cut this kind of deal – can be the nominee? Yup …
The basis of this first line of attack?
“Trump can’t be trusted because he is an egomaniac with a bad character,” Halperin wrote, paraphrasing the GOP establishment.
Other lines of attack will seek to label Trump as a liberal, as unfit to be commander-in-chief and as the consummate political insider (in contrast to the outsider image he has cultivated).
Then there are timing considerations …
“Barring some major unforeseen development, most Republican strategists now are resigned to deferring a climactic attempt to kill Trump until the field winnows down next spring,” Halperin wrote. “This scenario, of course, ignores the prospect that Trump could rack up so many victories in the meantime that his momentum would be difficult, or impossible, to stop.”
As this four-pronged assault ramps up, the establishment will use “Web videos, surrogate attacks, press scrutiny, even multimedia TV buys” in an effort to deal death to Trump by 1,000 cuts.
Ah, yes … gotta love that “Eleventh Commandment.”
Will the strategy work? Can Trump be killed?
(Wait … maybe that’s not the best choice of words).
“The history of past nomination fights suggest he can be,” Halperin concludes. “The untraditional front-runners of the summer silly season have always swiftly fallen to the back of the pack – or out of the race altogether – in the fall.”
That’s true … but Trump is no ordinary “untraditional front-runner.” He doesn’t give a damn – and unlike the other candidates who turn tricks for special interest handouts, he can cash the checks his mouth writes.
As opposed to regurgitating what the set commands …
Most importantly, a construct has been established in this race that’s likely to continue working in Trump’s favor. Right or wrong, broad swaths of the GOP primary electorate have concluded that Trump = Truth. And not just any truth, the sort of unvarnished, unapologetic, unrelenting and uncompromising truth those attacking Trump have been too afraid to tell for far too long.
You know … like this.
Accordingly, establishment attacks against Trump are increasingly seen as attacks on the truth the candidate is telling … not necessarily the candidate himself.
Not only that, rather than damaging Trump – the broadsides against him are thus far only reinforcing the message that those running against him are nothing but a bunch of hypocritical hacks, tools of the establishment Trump is holding accountable.
“I hope they attack me,” Trump recently told The Wall Street Journal, “because everybody who attacks me is doomed.”
Don’t believe him? Ask Rick Perry – the most vocal of Trump’s early establishment attackers (which is ironic, considering he previously attempted to portray himself as a “tough guy” on the illegal immigration issue that fueled Trump’s initial ascendency).
Bottom line? Trump’s candidacy is no novelty. Nor is it a Jerry Maguire-style, bad pizza-fueled confessional. Instead, it’s an increasingly clear and present danger to politics as usual in the United States.
And while we have many ideological differences with “The Donald,” we couldn’t be happier that he has turned the 2016 campaign on its head …
The establishment is freaking out that Trump is still beating them, they know he is going to cost them the White House next year but there is absolutely nothing they can do to stop him. He’s playing their game better than they can play it, and they are the one’s who designed it!
You know they are plotting to have trump assassinated. Wonder how they will try? Sniper? Plane Crash? Car bomb? Car crash? Food poisoning? Knife attack?
Lindsey Graham wants Trump dead.
They’ll probably just make a video montage of his actual words. That should be enough.
A lot of gold to be mined there:
He’s probably plotting to have the Statue of Liberty fall on him. Kills two birds with one stone.
You bet we’re freaking out.
We do want to win in 2016.
There is nothing–nothing on God’s green earth–that conservatives hate more than some of their very own medicine.
The more Trump is attacked, the more voters that join behind him. Its better to have Trump than thousands of dead politicians and their families lining the streets everywhere. I tell ya, the masses are really pissed off all the corruption and lawlessness.
You cannot defeat Trump by attacking him in hopes of him losing support. The supporters are glued to him. What you can do, is defeat Trump by attacking him for outlandish and far out comments, that ensure he gathers no more support.
I haven’t heard any outlandish comments.He only tells the truth.Democrats and RINO”s don’t like the truth.
Wall,deport,no Iran deal and Obamacare repeal. 70% of America agrees with him on those policies.
Name one thing he’s told the truth about?
Except the time he said Obama is doing a good job and he would hire him.
Or that universal healthcare would be a good thing.
Deporting 11 million people in 18 months? Charging Ford 35% for cars made outside the US? Bombing ISIS and taking those oil wells for ourselves? I’m not even going to bring up the wall with the ridiculous, gorgeous door being paid for by the Mexicans. Trump has fairy dust that he can sprinkle and make everything wonderful.
Sounds like a plan. TRUMP!
Listening to the BS that the GOP fed you in the past led you to Trump – who is feeding your even bigger fairy tales.
I don’t know who is worse that draft dodging cowardly blowhard or the poor desperate schlubs who are eating the peanuts out of his turds and believe every word that huckster says.
“Trump has fairy dust that he can sprinkle and make everything wonderful.”
lol-make that fascist fairy dust
Can you imagine what Trump would say to a President that told him he could only build buildings in the US?
Thing is, Mussolini got elected for promising to make the trains run on time.
Trump is no different. He’s the grand “fixer” in the eyes of a suffering people.
American people today are little different psychologically than the people of Weimar Germany or pre-fascist Italy.
Many are hurting and looking for answers/leadership outside of the current system, no matter what guise that takes.
Many more are not hurting, and don’t believe his crap.
Welp, I’ve heard more than a few Dems suggest they might actually vote for him.(on the basis of taxing Wall St.)
And the GOP polls show him winning among GOPers, so it doesn’t seem to fit your reality that there are “many more” that don’t believe him regardless of who is or isn’t doing well financially.
Fascism? That’s what you get if you vote for Carson or Huckster. Look up the definition of fascism. If you don’t think that’s what the evangelical right is pushing for you’re blinded.
If Obammaramma would authorize the Canadian pipeline to OUR refineries, we wouldn’t need ISIS (or Iranian) oil.
What is outlandish is for a public figure, i.e., Trump, to state the plain truth to the American People without all the PC bullshit.
Every single thing he has said is factual truth. Whether people want to accept it or not.
Seems some people don’t want leadership that rocks the boat on a sinking US ship.
When has Trump shown any indicators than he is or will be a good leader? 4 bankrupcies, lost his TV gigs, speaks at a fourth grade level, looks like a complete joke, etc. What example can you provide?
Trump = Say whatever to appeal to bigots.
Immigrants = losers
Women = losers
Blacks = losers
POWs = losers
GOP = losers
All this consternation over Trump, when in the end even if he’s elected he’s fixing nothing.
What a complete waste of time.
Those dumb fucking hats alone are enough to disqualify that joke. He looks like he just got off of a bus full of elderly people in Myrtle Beach. Oh wait, that’s who’s supporting him. I get it now…
So what your saying is you like your old farts in Mao Tse Tung pant suits, or Kmart suits? Yuck.
What you wear out in public is up to you. Just dont expect to be taken seriously as a candidate.
Democrats are such ugly looking people that it doesn’t matter what the fuck they wear.
Ever seen an attractive Democrat women politician? NEVER.
Wendy Davis and Michelle Obama are two that come to mind.
It doesnt matter. You sad old men hate women anyways.
Thats why you keep losing the White House and will again in 2016.
LMAO!!!! Michelle Obama and the abortion queen!!!! Michelle is a woman? :)
More woman than you can handle.
Loretta Sanchez of the CA-46th district is pretty hot looking. The GOP has Mary Mack of the CA-45th – she’s hot too. Hilda Solis is fair – CA-32nd, Stephanie Sandlin – SD at large, Gabbie Giffords was a hottie, Senator Gillibrand was smokin’ hot when she was in Congress, Tulsi Gabbard of HI, she’s a hottie. Kyrsten Sinema of the AZ-9th, and Kathline Rice – NY-4th. If you place their pics next to former Congresswoman Cruela DeVille Jean Schmidt from OH, they’re even better lookin. Did you need the link?
In our own state- District (Lancaster) Rep Mandy Powers Norrell
I’ll tell you the same thing I told my smart ass grandson : That’s Mr. Old Fart Sir, to you kid. LOL
No, that’s Bernie you saw getting off the bus in Myrtle Beach.
Donald Trump has violated every traditional preconception of what a politician should be. These days he is living rent free in the minds of every Democrat and liberal press person’s head.
If he makes it through the CNN debate and goes another week on the campaign trail and his polling numbers remain the same or go up, it will be time to send the people in the press and the Democrats to the local ‘shrink.’
As he sustains his strength in the polls, and the political consulting class and mainstream media political pundits will turn up their attacks on him. They have been completely unsuccessful up to this point. The more they criticize him, it seems the stronger he gets. Will his appeal hold out much longer? Who knows. It could start coming to and end tonight, but not likely.
Republicans have been plowing the ground since 1964 for this. Time to read a bit from the Book of Hosea: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reap_the_whirlwind_(phrase)
The comment by Norman Tebbit in that article appears to be a narrative
of what the Democrats have done to our society in the last fifty years.
Thanks for the link, Mr Tebbit was “dead on.”
Go thaw some baby parts out of your ‘freezer’ ya Planned Parenthood faggot!You are not even human.

The Rat Koch Brothers are losing control of the GOP and even asking for help from the Bobblehead Democrats. Both, along with their paid for TV Media, are in a desperate war to keep control of the US Government and our money.
I am not a big fan of the Donald, but I will vote for him just to kick these assholes out of their control of our lives!!!
“I am not a big fan of the Donald, but I will vote for him just to kick these assholes out of their control of our lives!”
And that, is the for all intensive purposes, the best explanation of what’s going on so far on this site.
It’s a big middle finger to the GOP & Dems.
People like Trump not because all his ideas are great, they aren’t. Who seriously thinks a physical wall is going to stop immigrants from coming over here?
It didn’t work for China with their Great Wall, why would it work for the US?
The best that can be done is a “welfare wall” erected- no more giving away taxpayer money those coming here.
But going back to your comment, which is very good…people don’t give a shit that he’s kooky, bombastic, unrealistic, or whatever…they just want to tell every other politician that makes his living off the taxpayers for eternity “fuck you”.
It doesn’t matter if Trump is a buffoon or not, all that matters is that almost every Dem and GOP politician hates him…and that’s good enough for most angry people(and there’s a lot of those rightfully so).
Maybe he can ask Sarah Palin to be his VP and the angry mob can really stick to the country & themselves. He has already stated he’d like to have her in his administration.
Who knows what will happen, but let’s face it…a lot of people really do cut off their noses to spit the face if that’s how you perceive it.
Another way to perceive it though, is that they are fucked either way and just want to feel in control of something.
It’s like telling a person holding a gun to your head that you know will shoot you(because that’s how many Trump supporters feel) to go fuck themselves.
Sure, it gets you an instant bullet to the head…but maybe that’s better than him telling you he’s going to shoot you for a hour before doing it.
Ditto, and exactly right.
The entire crowd needs to go, and take their lying media crowd with them.
USA >>>”Best Democracy Money Can Buy.”
And, the people are sick of it!!!
Tonights little Donald “Hate Fest,” will probably only get him even more votes.
That same strategy worked for Mussolini and Hitler………….
Why not here??????
It absolutely will work here.
This Tea Party babe on CNN is delusional “Donald hasn’t always had it easy”.
At the beginning of the “debate”, Chris Christie could simply walk over to Trump and knock the shit out of him…..
What you wanna bet that blowhard wouldn’t hit back????
Trump is proving that the GOP rank and file don’t fall lock-step into the party line that tax cuts for the rich are the key to economic success. Everyone else in the party has to toe that line because they need the money to finance their campaigns. The left’s fascination with Bernie is about the same thing: income inequality. Hillary is just too close to Wall Street. The only thing dividing Trump and Bernie supporters are social issues.
Bridge the Gap!
Trump the Dumbocrats!
The fact that he’s considered a legitimate candidate speaks volumes about the USA.
2 terms of Obama…what the fuck does that say???….and you suck off Obama…what does that say about how fucking ignorant YOU must be…
