Donald Trump Draws Thousands In Anderson

GOP FRONTRUNNER BLASTS LINDSEY GRAHAM, COMMON CORE, IRAN DEAL … Donald Trump drew a crowd of between 7,000-8,000 people in Anderson, S.C. this week – and drew cheers from them when he ripped their home state U.S. Senator. “Lindsey Graham needs to go home and better represent his own people,” Trump told…

GOP FRONTRUNNER BLASTS LINDSEY GRAHAM, COMMON CORE, IRAN DEAL …

Donald Trump drew a crowd of between 7,000-8,000 people in Anderson, S.C. this week – and drew cheers from them when he ripped their home state U.S. Senator.

“Lindsey Graham needs to go home and better represent his own people,” Trump told the crowd, to wild applause.

Trump has been sparring with Graham in the Palmetto State, where the second-term U.S. Senator is struggling to poll above five percent in his own backyard.  Trump?  He’s consistently leading the field in early-voting South Carolina, according to aggregate polling.

So much for Graham’s promise to “beat (Trump)’s brains out.”

In addition to bashing Graham (a frequent target), Trump was cheered enthusiastically when he ripped federal Common Core standards – one of the government programs he vowed to cut in previewing his spending plans.

“Amazing energy,” one attendee at the event told us. “I’ve never heard roars like that.”

Education standards are a point of contention between Trump and former Florida governor Jeb Bush – who supports Common Core.

Trump and Bush agree, however, when it comes to opposing the Iranian nuclear deal negotiated by U.S. president Barack Obama and secretary of state John Kerry (and approved by a “Republican” Congress).

“A hundred and fifty billion dollars in the Iran deal – and Obama and Kerry didn’t ask for our prisoners because it would ‘complicate’ the deal,” Trump said.

The failure of America’s leaders to negotiate good deals on the global stage has been a centerpiece of Trump’s candidacy – and he continued to hammer away at that theme on his latest South Carolina swing.

“We can’t go another four years like this – we won’t have a country,” Trump said.

Trump heads to Iowa (another early voting state where he leads in the polls) for an event later this week, and will be in Florida for two events at the end of the week.  Expect him to ratchet up his recent criticism of Bush during his Sunshine State swing.

LOL…the man they came to see said…and I quote:

“They are not our friend, believe me. … When Mexico sends its people,
they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending
people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems
with us. They are bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re
rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Trump is turning out old, white racists who finally have a spokesman who isn’t “P.C.”…let’s see how that works out in the polls for them.

Classic neo-con racism. If only there was a father in every home then all of societies ills would be gotten rid of. It’s like white people never come from fatherless homes.

Secondly, S.C. is not the only state with black people in it. Yet, we rank consistently on the bottom of everything good and at the top of everything bad.

It’s not race or daddies, it’s governance. If you enjoy living in hog squalor…then by all means keep voting for the GOP.

If I had time tonight to engage with you, I could take your “governance” theme and point our discussion down to the macro level – city governments. Take a look at the “governance” of our major metro cities run by Dems…nuff said there. You’re also playing a little fast and loose with your hero LBJ and the CRA of 1964. Anyone who passed civics knows that Republicans voted voted more heavily in favor for the CRA than did Dems (80% to 63% in the House and 82% to 69% in the Senate). As I think you probably know, it was a little more complex than the numbers suggest – there were Dems fighting for it, and Repubs fighting against it. The numbers, however, don’t lie.

Limbaughsaphatkhunt October 19, 2015 at 10:56 pm

Allow me to retort.
Our entire federal delegation (except for one) is GOP.
Our entire state congress has the GOP in majority (both house and senate).
Our governor is GOP
Most of the mayors in S.C. are GOP
Most of the elected county wide reps in SC are GOP
School boards, town councils…you name it….all GOP majorities.

Columbia and Charleston are notable islands in the stream but hardly indicative of the state overall.

As for LBJ..he began the campaign in earnest following on from Kennedy and this was in a pre-period to the Nixonian “Southern Strategy” of switching the old confederacy from D’s to R’s to capitalize on racist white voters that hated equal protection and fairness for black people.

Mike at the Beach October 19, 2015 at 11:12 pm

Understand all, and as I said…it was complicated. It’s never as simple as black or white, R or D (and that goes for debate on both sides).

stumpknocker October 19, 2015 at 11:15 pm

LBJ was a mover, he got things done

vicupstate October 20, 2015 at 9:04 am

Sorry. you are the one with the incorrect view of the CRA.

Yes, New York and Ohio Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act. But so did the Democrats from those states.

The key factor is NOT party but North vs. South. All or essentially ALL the congressmen of the Confederacy/Border states voted AGAINST the CRA. It was the congressmen OUTSiDE of the Confederate/Border states that voted for it, REGARDLESS of party.

Back then, because of the legacy of the Civil War, the vast majority of Southern House and Senate members were Democrats regardless of ideology(MOST were conservative though). What few GOP members in the South that there were, voted UNANIMOUSLY AGAINST the CRA.

The voting base of support for the conservative Democrats (anti-CRA) of that era, gradually became Republicans over the next generation.

Mike at the Beach October 20, 2015 at 10:39 am

Sorry, but I’ve got the CRA info down pat. Folks like to oversimplify, usually to make their point or shade a characterization (like the tired old “Republicans hate black people and like pollution” stuff). Cunt’s plainly stated assertion was that the “confederacy/GOP” fought the CRA. That’s simply not true, and even the North-South construct doesn’t accurately portray the situation on the ground in 1964. Only 6 Senate Republicans voted against the CRA of 64 – Six senators does not a Southern “confederacy” make. You are right in that it was a North-South construct, but it’s not nearly as simple as most would claim that it was.

Trump would have a much better position on Immigration and the Latino community if he created a better foreign policy position for the USA and Latin America. We would not need a wall if conditions were better in Central America, where most of these illegals are coming from. The USA has not had a serious Latin American Policy since Kennedy. We need one now. Opening up to Cuba is a good start. Expand that to create local infrastructure (electricity, telecom, roads, etc. ) in Honduras, Belize, etc. will create local jobs and keep illegals at home, where they want to be in the first place.

A good offense will always beat a good defense. Walls like forts do not work in the long run. You have to go on the offensive. Plus, it’s just good business for US to be down there helping out. There’s lots of natural resources and opportunity to expand US businesses into other areas than China.

NAFTA was a complete disaster, (thanks Bill Clinton), we don’t need another one. What we need is US involvement, to block China’s increasing influence on our southern borders. It’s really vital to the US National Security that we move aggressively into Latin America: as a friend and at a profit for all.
