Donald Trump’s Message to Republicans --- STAY REAL & MAN UP !!!


“The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine….  It is out of control. It is gridlock with their mouths….”    ---  Donald Trump


“I disagree with a lot of things I’ve watched in politics over the years, that’s why I’m running….  ,” “And that may make me less popular with politicians. But I have to be honest. I didn’t get there by doing it the way a lot of these people do it….”    ---  Donald Trump


“People want people to represent them who are going to stick up for what they believe in….  Politicians have been very weak and very ineffective over the last quite long period of time….”   ---  Donald Trump


The Donald’s push-back type message was contained in a very succinct NY Times article;  and it is encapsulated in these three short paragraphs:   “ Donald J. Trump has some advice for panicked Republicans in Washington who are melting down over his most incendiary statements: Man up….   ‘Politicians are so politically correct anymore, they can’t breathe,’  Mr. Trump said in an interview Tuesday afternoon as fellow Republicans forcefully protested his ethnically charged criticism of a federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against the defunct Trump University….  ‘The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine,” he said during an interlude in a day of exceptional stress in the Trump campaign. “It is out of control. It is gridlock with their mouths.’…” (See “Donald Trump’s Advice to Panicked Republicans: Man Up” by Carl Hulse, 6/8/16, NY Times [http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/09/us/politics/donald-trump-republicans.html?_r=0];  that article was also featured on the Microsoft News Feed  [http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/donald-trump%e2%80%99s-advice-to-panicked-republicans-man-up/ar-AAgOM49?ocid=spartandhp] ).

Later on in the article, Timesman Carl Hulse went on to make note of the following:   “….  anyone thinking that Mr. Trump is going to suddenly adopt a more cautious, strategic approach yearned for by election-conscious congressional Republicans is likely to be disappointed. He wrinkled his nose in disgust at the mere mention of the word “pivot,” though he conceded he wants to get on to broader discussion of the economy….  In his view, it is clear that his way has worked and the establishment’s has failed. After all, he vanquished every senator, governor or former governor who challenged him for the party’s nomination….  ‘I disagree with a lot of things I’ve watched in politics over the years, that’s why I’m running,’ Mr. Trump said over a meatball lunch he barely touched in the restaurant of Trump Tower.  ‘And that may make me less popular with politicians. But I have to be honest. I didn’t get there by doing it the way a lot of these people do it.’…”


GOP ESTABLISHMENT CRITIQUE OF TRUMP & TRUMP’S PUSH-BACK AGAINST IT


Also part of the Times article was this: “Back in Washington, congressional Republicans were in a fever, with Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a reluctant Trump convert to begin with, calling Mr. Trump’s comments about the judge “the textbook definition” of racism. Senator Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican and majority leader, denounced Mr. Trump’s crusade against Judge Curiel as stupid and urged him to apologize. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois withdrew his endorsement, and others were pondering it….  Mr. Trump, arms crossed tightly across his chest during lunch, was aggrieved and considered some of the Republican pushback inappropriate and unhelpful — though he did not want to address specific critics. He insisted that he is anything but a racist and, with his usual rebuttal by the numbers, stressed that voters have rewarded his outspokenness with a record haul of primary votes while Washington is held in dismal regard….  As the primary season came to an odd close with him under Republican fire in the nation’s capital — an unheard-of spectacle in the last half century of presidential politics — Mr. Trump took some time to huddle with his campaign team. His daughter Ivanka, a trusted adviser, was close at hand, as was his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, his press secretary, Hope Hicks, and his special counsel, Michael Cohen….  ‘People want people to represent them who are going to stick up for what they believe in,” Mr. Trump said. “Politicians have been very weak and very ineffective over the last quite long period of time.’…”

A comment containing pure anti-Trump propaganda has been removed, because it contained material about Donald Trump's ethnic background that was factually incorrect.

Robert Capano:
"Looking forward to speaking to another Brooklyn organization about issues affecting NYC. Thank you to the Brooklyn Tea Party for the invitation. I will be addressing ill-advised city council legislation, including the bag fee; the Mayor and City Council Speaker's criminal justice "reforms"; public and private school policies; and the student debt crisis."

UPDATE: THE “TRUMP SAYS HE’S READY FOR WAR AGAINST HILLARY --- AND --- ANYBODY IN THE GOP THAT DOESN’T GET ON BOARD” EDITION

AT THIS MOMENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT HAVING ANY OF WHAT SOME GOP “LEADERS” ARE SERVING

TRUMP POINTS OUT THAT IT JUST MIGHT BE THAT -- HE WINS -- AND THE REPUBLICANS NOT WITH HIM --- DON’T

ALSO A STOP-TRUMP MOVEMENT IS AGAIN MAKING NOISES INSIDE THE GOP

According to Trump in his own words at a rally in Tampa on Saturday, "We have a war to win against a very crooked politician [referring to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton]…. I don't want to waste a lot of time trying to defend ourselves against these phony [ Republican politicians]…. The Republican Party has to come together --- they have to get their act together…." (See “Donald Trump Tells Skeptical Republican Party Members to Fall in Line” [text w/ video links] by Alexandra Jaffe, 6/11/16, NBC News/ .com Edition [http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/donald-trump-tells-skeptical-party-members-fall-line-n590311]).

According to a Washington Post report about the same speech --- "Trump said that the party leadership has resisted his candidacy because he entered the race as a political outsider. But he added that, 'I think it’s coming together.' He said that the party will need to unite if they do not want to give Democrats the White House in November.... 'One thing I’ll say about the Democrats to a much greater degree — they stick together. They stick together, much more so than the Republicans,' Trump said. 'We have the better ideas. And my ideas are better than any of them.'..." (See "Trump knocks rivals in Florida and Pennsylvania — and not just the Democrats" by Jose A. DelReal, 6/11/16 Washington Post/ Post Politics [https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/06/11/in-florida-trump-attacks-rivals-and-not-just-the-democrats/]; also on MSN.com as "In Florida, Trump attacks rivals — and not just the Democrats" [http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/in-florida-trump-attacks-rivals-%e2%80%94-and-not-just-the-democrats/ar-AAgVhYs?ocid=spartandhp]).

Alexandra Jaffes’ article for NBC News described what Trump had to say like this: “While Trump spent some of his speech recycling his attacks against Clinton and the Obama administration — and even attacked Secretary of State John Kerry for being in a biking accident during Iran Deal negotiations — he spent a near-equal amount of time dismissing Republicans…. Trump seemed unconcerned with Republican Party skeptics, sticking to his usual freewheeling style despite recommendations from GOP leaders to reign it in now that he's the presumptive nominee….”

Trump also seemed to kiss-off a significant minority of GOP senators, who have still refused to endorse him, by saying that it's "fine"; but then put this right out there: "I'm saying, 'What the hell are they doing?” Then Trump said he just wouldn't campaign for those Republicans and warned everybody that there could be a "case where I win and many others don't…. I would love to see the [GOP obtain a senate] majority, but the Republicans have to stick together, they have to be smart…."

The NBC report followed all that with this observation: “…. The use of ‘they’ for party-switching Trump — who was a Republican early on in life, before becoming a Democrat, then an Independent and then a Republican again — underscores lingering concerns for many Republican Party elders who don't believe he represents them…. Such concerns have recently sparked fresh interest in the prospect of a dark-horse candidate taking the nomination away during the Republican National Convention next month….”

That's why Liam McCabe will be such a great candidate for the CC and why we need to make Grimm a candidate for Congress again. Don't you see how that logic works?
