Bully for you! Theodore Roosevelt Jr. - 26th President of the United States
Late yesterday afternoon arrived the following text from a longtime friend:
"Deeply concerned that the voting process is corrupted. Ballots. Machines. Etc. I'm concerned Andy. Truly."
So are a lot of people concerned.
And leading (imagine that) the concerned people is Mr. Trump.
To close the third and final debate last Wednesday night, Mr. Trump, in reply to Mr. Wallace's question about accepting the election results, said he'd wait and see.
The Wallace, et al., reaction of gasping shock and disbelief faux. And wrong.
And then Mr. Trump was attacked!
That was the headline moments later. Since. And still it's the (distracting) talk.
But the wrong man was attacked.
Mr. Trump, boldly, spoke truth.
The man who should be attacked, for not speaking truth, is President Obama.
As to ...
1. Obamacare: If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
2. IRS targeting of conservative groups: Not a smidgen of corruption.
3. Benghazi attack: A videotape sparked the attack.
4. Mrs. Clinton's non-government server and email: Learned about it at the same time as everyone else - from media.
5. Hostages in Iran: There was no ransom payment.
Those but a few of President Obama's grander, per facts (and deductions), lies. Flat out lies. Not "misstatements." Lies. Lies to deceive for personal agenda and gain.
So, with facts as they are and ability to deduce as it is, is there iota of doubt President Obama is not behind the DOJ and FBI corruption making for Mrs. Clinton as his party's nominee for president?
It's not yet 0300. A ringing phone did not awaken me but a 'ringing phone' sure did. Awake for a couple of hours now considering how to 'answer the call,' succinctly, in (this) commentary.
Mr. Trump charges the election is rigged.
There's nary a reason not to take his charge seriously. It's a high crime - with mind-boggling consequences; beginning with our national integrity and national security extending to global commitments and necessary respect from friends and foes.
Absolutely turn the spotlight on President Obama. Only someone temporarily ahold of such power can pollute, in myriad ways, an election.
For starters, fielding the Democrat party nominee.
It is President Obama who should be under attack by Mr. Wallace, et al.
Mr. Trump has merely pointed out what any rational, objective "man" with a smidgen of common sense sees.
One of those men sent me the text.
Yes, there's many a moving particular.
No, I 'm not going to elaborately address all particulars - e.g., government corruption and crime; media conspirators (to smear; etc.); polluted voting registration and voting methods; etc., - for those but ways and means of the core people problem.
Politics and practitioners thereof, especially during elections, are not exempt from truth. Nor law and order and justice.
Shame on anyone who chastises another (especially a candidate for President) who has the courage to question the sanctity of due process. If it looks and smells wrong it probably is all that and more.
Each citizen, voter, bears civic duty to protect the integrity of seating representatives.
My Good Mr. Trump,
Sir, no need to look over your shoulder. Tens of millions of angry, bold Americans are formed right behind you.
Damn right, wait and see. Damn right.
Stand your ground. Seize the hill. Charge!
As President Roosevelt, a stalwart, one of America's greatest straight-shooting presidents, was fond of saying, "Bully for you!"
