In the area of “First Things First,”
as a woman who has dreamed of a woman President since I was a child; am conflicted.
I owe Hillary Clinton a huge apology, (along with Chelsea and Bill), for secretly wanting Trump to win the GOP nomination.
My desire was self-serving.
I simply wanted to watch, (knowing Hillary’s 30 plus years of experience began in college), made her the most qualified candidate of either party, to mop the floor with the other side.
GOP, however, delivered unto the world, not a candidate; but an abomination, instead.
Both men on the GOP ticket, have proven themselves to be anti-American in values; with a bonus for Mike Pence for his votes against veterans and widows of veterans! Trump? Heck, I know why Trump’s parents sent him to a military academy (where Donnie scored a medal for “Neatness”), they didn’t like him, either.
But I am not happy Hillary never got a real opponent. She got a misogynist-racist, carnival barker. Who doesn’t like veterans any more than his Vice-Presidential, pick; and has no plan. Or attention span. As a bonus, Trump knows zip about the military. See here from Matt Lauer’s softball questions.
Veterans aren’t stupid enough to vote for a failed business man (21 bankruptcies) who would put their life in danger.
I called it Seven months ago.
Seven months ago I said:
“This presidential race will boil down to the most qualified candidate in the world; versus: Misogyny.
On the Democratic side we have Hillary: In the trenches for equal rights for 30 years.
On the GOP side: We have…the Chief Birther.
So in that regard, Trump filling a dual roles as top misogynist-racist; is, Perfect!
Also, Trump chose as his, Second-In-Command; Mike Pence. Who did this.
But wait – there’s more. If you think Pence is Veteran friendly, I cordially invite you to rethink that notion.
Hillary, girlfriend; – you’ve got your work cut out for you. Especially since neither party will discuss the obvious….and Matt Lauer made the hashtag, #LaueringTheBar trend after his disastrous “interview.”
But some women aren’t helpful. I live in San Diego. Our Democratic Party leader refuses to make the solution for safety of women a platform. Her name is Francine Busby.
But mostly, Hillary. The problem with criminal cops. The secondary problem is the therapists like Dr. Michael Mantrell, who okay these weirdos as “fit for duty.“
Black eyes matter. Lone wolf attackers often start with attacks on their wives or girlfriends. Women are the canary in the coal mine. This includes police officers attacking family members. Or committing on-duty rapes.
Just today – Retired NY Police Lt. Vincent Curulli –
Quick aside: Dear Hillary, I found one solution to Domestic Violence. I discovered that judge could order, live-saving, Effective Restraining orders. (It’s a high-tech solution). Sadly, six years later, I found that not one judge cares about women enough, to use it. If you know of any judges willing to help you help women live, have someone call me. Thanks!
But still: I really hadn’t figured on the guy who openly said he’d probably date his daughter, would be quite the total nut job he turned out to be. (However I am glad people are beginning to comment on Trump’s obvious mental health issues.) In fairness, at the time, I was unaware the Republican Party had devolved into total anti-American, stupidity.
Although; there were clues.
But, I digress.
Back to Misogyny!
Hillary will have to contend with vast quantities of misogyny in media. And I don’t mean “FOX” this time. Misogyny especially by women. Click —> CBS demonstrated a prime example of misogyny regarding online harassment to read one very alarming attack, by women on a father attempting to protect his daughter from targeted harassment.
Selfishly, I wanted Hillary to beat a GOP nominee who was strong and fair; who at the very least, knew foreign policy.
But GOP gave us a man who is not only so globally clueless as to qualify as the village idiot, but as a bonus: who could also be diagnosed as certifiable.
The strange part was GOP did so, with no apologies. I really wanted a worthy opponent. One who has done the kind of work Hillary has. Like this.
(A stranger part is Trump insists he loves Veterans. Nah. Trump petitioned to have homeless Veterans removed from an area near Trump Plaza.)
Also, heads up media. Given Trump only answers to the voices in his head – consider,
Will Trump debate? It’s not a given.
- Hillary has released about 30 years of taxes; and
2. Trump refuses to release any taxes. (Media remains largely asleep at the wheel.)
3. although Debates are scheduled – since Trump refuses to prove he’s as rich as he claims, why would Trump debate? Especially when his habit is to jettison reporters from his “private” rallies.
Another thing: As an aside, The Republican Party is so patently cowardly, not one member called Trump out when he asked Putin to interfere in our election. Until, Day Two.
Donald Trump Jr. — who is also an executive with Trump’s business — makes clear how the company in 2008 sought business from wealthy Russians. “In terms of high-end product influx into the U.S., Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” he said at a conference that year, according to news reports. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
The jig is up.
Trump is not a good businessman. Here’s 21 Chapter 11’s media didn’t find.
GOP is 24/7 Anti-American Tea Party with seemingly, boundless energy for hate towards women, especially black women, and most immigrant Americans.
But misogynist racists love Trump. And America has a few of them. So, Trump has the misogynist-racist vote, down. For sure.
Thus the job for Democrats, is: Early voting. Because you know the Republicans will try to suppress the vote. Or distributing flyers saying to be sure and vote — the day after the election. Especially in the South.
Fool ’em. Vote early!
Best for last
I’m sorry you didn’t have a worthy opponent, Hillary. But I thank you for all you’ve done. And I want to help you end the problem of women getting killed after filing for divorce or a change of custody. The issue of violating restraining orders could be over with the cost-effective use of high-technology. However, the issue of judges not caring enough about women and keeping them at risk, remains.
Helping change this dynamic could be your legacy. Please let me know if you’re interested.
In conclusion: a reality check: If you’re voting for Trump: See below.
