PRESIDENT TRUMP, NEVER BACK DOWN
Jesse Lee Peterson applauds GOP nominee’s lesson in 'loving your enemy'
Donald Trump gave a lesson in “loving your enemy” Thursday night. Trump stood three seats from Hillary Clinton at the annual Al Smith dinner, which honors the first Catholic presidential candidate from three generations ago.
Donald made fun of himself and his wife, as well as Hillary and her liberal media – it was very funny and lighthearted for 10 minutes. Then he spent two or three minutes telling the absolute truth about Hillary Clinton. Horror, shock and boos filled the room after he said the words, “Hillary is so corrupt …”
Flashback: Dr. Ben Carson
Remember when Dr. Ben Carson stood two seats from President Barack Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast some years ago? He plainly and kindly told the truth about Obamacare.
Carson’s statement was so refreshing to the American people (and perhaps the biggest action that propelled his popularity as a candidate in the presidential primary). It was as pure an act of courage and love as we’d seen in decades.
This week, with the country in much worse shape, Donald Trump was even more confrontational, forceful and brutal than Ben Carson famously was – and appropriately so.
Phony politicians and their phony rules
Have you ever seen our Republican and Democrat “leaders” rub elbows as though they’re “friends,” one charmed by the other? Have you seen the Bushes, Clintons and Obamas embracing one another, or conservatives posing for pictures with the likes of Al Sharpton? These are disgusting displays of weakness, phoniness and power-and-celebrity worship.
Did you see the so-called “honest” socialist Bernie Sanders fall in line with the same Democratic Party that repeatedly stabbed him in the back? Because Bernie is a hypocrite who only believes in politics and imaginary “racism,” he speaks against the only truly honest candidate (Trump) who really called out corruption.
Conservatives have behaved by liberals’ ever-constricting rules of “political correctness” for so long. Meanwhile, liberals openly bash and mock conservatives.
Liberals promote their wicked causes at inappropriate venues every chance they get. They infiltrated American entertainment, sports, schools, even churches. Then they name-call the good people who decry their mess. They brand us with “deplorable“ made-up terms (“They‘re racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic“ – you name it).
Donald Trump is throwing it all back in their faces. They scream like witches and demons who’ve had “holy water” thrown on them. Evil people cannot handle truth. But truth is thrilling to the American people who want what’s right.
All-out war against evil
At the Al Smith dinner, Donald Trump did the only moral thing he could do by trashing Hillary for her lies. I was glad when he said, “She hates Catholics.” I loved how Donald boldly continued through the boos. Had Trump played “nice” with “such a nasty woman” that evening, it would have been yet another victory for evil.
Remember the final debate in 2012 when Mitt Romney allowed Barack Obama to pretend to care about the victims of Benghazi, faking indignation when Mitt suggested Barack did not care? Because Mitt was a coward (brainwashed to believe in “racism”) who did not want to call out a black man for lying, he lost.
Trump was not himself in the first and third presidential debates (possibly because he listened to politically correct handlers). So he allowed a foothold for Satan’s daughter, Hillary, to accuse him of phony “sexism” and “racism,” not calling out her hatred and hypocrisy.
But other politicians are incapable of dealing the punishment he gave Hillary in the second debate, or giving real answers to questions as he did in the third (on whether he‘d accept an election rigged by lying media and voter fraud: “I‘ll keep you in suspense”).
