Trump by Gingrich…..

Understanding Donald Trump   The Washington Times  (z; definitely worth the read)

January 8, 2016 by
Newt Gingrich

Donald Trump is a genuine phenomenon.  He may or may not become the
Republican nominee for president.  He may or may not win the
presidency even if he becomes the nominee.  Yet it is clear that he is
a phenomenon and that any history of the 2016 presidential race will
have to spend a good bit of time analyzing Trump and his impact.

From the time he announced on June 16, Trump has dominated social and
mainstream media.   He dominates the conversation despite the lack of
paid advertising.  Trump says outrageous things and his supporters
shrug it off. At every turn, his poll numbers continue to rise.

As a step toward understanding this amazing performance, I spent part
of the Christmas break reading his first bestseller, ‘The Art of the
Deal’.  Written in 1987, this book is a classic among American
business books and has influenced a generation of entrepreneurs.
Trump wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ when he was 41 years old and having
a successful run.   The book’s popularity contributed to Time
Magazine’s decision to feature Donald Trump on its cover in January
1989.

The portrait that emerges from this easy-to-read and remarkably
interesting book is of an aggressive, ambitious person who is
constantly pushing, constantly learning, and always seeking the next
challenge.  Reporters and analysts who are trying to understand Trump
would be well served by slowing down and reading this nearly
three-decade-old bestseller.

They would discover that Donald Trump has developed a remarkable set
of rules and principles that allow him to make decisions with
incredible speed.  Trump knows a lot, but what is amazing is how
rapidly he figures out what he doesn’t know.

My favorite story is of the Wollman Skating Rink in New York’s Central Park.
The Wollman Rink was a heavily used public skating rink which had
fallen into disrepair in 1980.  New York City tried for six years to
fix it, spent $13 million, and the rink still was not ready to open.
In June of 1986 Trump, who could see the rink from his apartment,
finally got tired of the embarrassment and offered to fix the rink at
his own expense.  At first the city turned him down because its
bureaucracy did not want to be embarrassed by someone fixing something
they couldn’t fix. Trump kept pushing and finally out of embarrassment
the city gave in.

The key part of the story is Trump’s reaction to being put in charge.
He promptly recognized that he didn’t know anything about fixing a
skating rink. He asked himself who built a lot of skating rinks.
“Canadians!” he concluded. He found the best Canadian ice skating rink
construction company.  When the Canadians flew in to assess the
situation, they were amazed at how bad the city had been at solving
the problem. They assured Trump that this was an easy job.  Trump
fixed the six year embarrassment two months ahead of schedule and
nearly $800,000 under-budget. (The city did end up paying for the
work, and Trump donated the profits to charity.)

After reading this chapter you begin to think that maybe Donald Trump
really could build a wall along our southern border for a lot less
than our current government estimates.

‘The Art of the Deal’ is filled with stories like this — stories of
common sense, stories of calculated risk taking, and stories of
innovation and marketing.  Anyone who would like to better understand Donald Trump would be helped by reading this remarkable book.

Another is his pledges and I have no way of knowing if he will make
good on all of them but I do agree with all of them.  Trump is the
only candidate that is serious about building The Wall” ! Two other
important pledges Trump has made that no other candidate of either
party has matched! First deportation of millions of illegals that are
demanding and costing American taxpayers billions of dollars and
second, closing 34 Muslim training camps throughout our country!   I
WOULD LIKE TRUMP OR ANY OTHER CANDIDATES PLEDGE TO REINSTATE ANY AND ALL MILITARY OFFICERS DISCHARGED BECAUSE THEY DISAGREED WITH OBAMA OR HIS POLICIES!!

Here is another that kind of wraps up my feelings about Trump;
Raccoon’s in your basement!    An interesting analogy.
You’ve been on vacation for two weeks.  You come home, and your
basement is infested with raccoon’s.   Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean
raccoon’s have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately
so you hire a guy. A pro.   You don’t care if the guy smells, you need
those raccoon’s gone pronto and he’s the guy to do it!  You don’t care
if the guy swears, you don’t care if he’s an alcoholic, you don’t care
how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he voted for
Obama, you don’t care if he has plumber’s crack…you simply want
those raccoon’s gone!

You want your problem fixed!  He’s the guy.  He’s the best.  Period.
That’s why Trump!  Yes he’s a bit of an ass, yes he’s an egomaniac,
but you don’t care.
The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republican Party
is two-faced & gutless, illegal’s are everywhere.   You want it all
fixed! You don’t care that Trump is crude, you don’t care that he
insults people, you don’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary,
you don’t care that he has changed positions, you don’t care that he’s
been married 3 times, you don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly
and Rosie O’Donnell,  you don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of
some Muslin terrorist,…this country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies
are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal’s, we are
becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hamad is a
special interest group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED” and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

You’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, Republican
Party, and sick of illegal’s.   You just want this thing fixed.  Trump
may not be a saint, but doesn’t have any lobbyist money influencing
him.  He doesn’t have political correctness restraining him.  All you
know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has
built a lot of things, and he’s also not a politician, so he’s not a
cowardly politician.  And he says he’ll fix it. You don’t care if the
guy has bad hair. You just want those raccoon’s gone;  out of your
house!  -end of article

Z:   First, for the record;  there is no way millions of illegals are going to be deported, Trump or no Trump;  in a few years, I hope I’ve been proven wrong, trust me, but it ain’t happenin’.

I’m not sure I agree with some of the above article but I do grasp anything I can grasp which makes me feel better that this blowhard, repulsive, nasty man might be our president.  And this article helps.   I think.

You?

  1. Love the racoon analogy!

    Just recently, I’ve been having trouble with squirrels in the basement here. Screaming, destroying stuff, peeing all over the place.

    So, I didn’t care about certain flaws of the people from Animal Control and pest control. The goal was to get my basement back so that I could do my laundry in peace.

  3. Apparently, Karl Rove was surprised by the margin of victory for Trump in yesterday’s primaries.

    He shouldn’t be surprised.

    On October 12, 2015, I sat down face to face with one of his best friends for 2.5 hours to try to explain the level of anger at the street level. Anger directed at the GOP for breaking promises and running RINO’s. The fellow with whom I spoke was cordial enough, but he kept saying, “We must remain tethered to reality.”

    No matter what I said, I was basically told, “You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

    It’s the management of the GOP not tethered to reality.

    I requested to meet with Karl Rove. No go, of course. I’m one of the peasants beyond the moat.

    Hey, Karl! Can you hear me now?

  4. BTW, at the end of the meeting, the fellow said to me, “What are you going to do with this information?”

    My reply: “Nothing.” [pause] “Yet.”

    Full disclosure: I’m not in the tank for Trump. I see his flaws. He has many.

    But the reality I perceive is this: because the GOP’s management wouldn’t heed the warning signs, the GOP’s management has blown the matter of outflanking Donald Trump — at this point, anyway.

    Newt makes some good points, and so does Ed (above). I look at it this way: for decades we’ve heard politicians say that they’re going to move the country forward, reduce spending, improve education, strengthen the military, fix the IRS, fix immigration, fix the drug problem, stop the rise of sea level, teach us to ride unicorns and feed on pixie dust, and on and on and on.

    And it never seems to get done, and the debt keeps self-feeding, and more kids are dropping out of school and more babies are having babies, and our military is headed toward pre-WWII levels, and drug use is on the rise, and on and on and on.

    O.K. So Trump is an egomaniac with virtually no experience in government, foreign relations, national security, and such. But it just seems crazy to hire another temp CEO from the establishment pool and expect different results . . . don’t it?

    We actually WANT some energy, some fire, some chutzpah in our leaders. We don’t need another Jimmah, or another Slick, or another Tricky Dick. We need someone with fresh ideas who can figure out how to motivate Congress to do the jobs they’re paid to with their hands in FRONT, not behind their backs with the palms up.

    As Fiorina was the first to say, Trump has tapped into the growing voter anger resulting from a sense of betrayal by the people they send to Washington to represent them. They want some simple, direct, common-sense solutions to sanctuary cities, border infiltration, drug smuggling, trade deficits, etc., etc., etc.

    So maybe he’s NOT a true conservative, and maybe he DOESN’T have a good grip on some of the most serious problems. But he has the drive to get things done, and sometimes it’s best to just pull the band-aid off all at once, get on with the crying and puking, and get back to work.

    The thing about Trump is that he never got out of the King-Of-The-Hill phase. He wants to be the big cheese, the main man, the Kahuna of kahunas. Yes, of course it’s a vanity thing, and yes, the Trump University thing is gonna bite him in the butt.

    But, we can’t just keep on keepin on with entrenched politicians feeding us hot air while lining their pockets. As Hamlet says, “You cannot feed capons so,” so it’s time to stand up and rattle the cage before our transformation to capons is complete. There’s still time for the 2nd American Revolution to be won by ballots instead of bullets.

    What we have now is a great experiment designed by well-read ethical geniuses and being run by greedy good ol’ boy clones. It’s time we took the last exit off the circular Highway to More Of The Same and brought in a professional ringmaster to herd the cats.

    In 2008 I told my wife that America, because of his sluggish economy that is meant to last because of constant deficits and money printing will turn to nationalism. Trump is the first step towards that. Things could get worse if politicians don’t fix problems. It’ll be even greater (nastier?) nationalism or it’ll be serious socialism.

    I was reading yesterday that corporate loan defaults in Q1 are the 5th highest in history. (http://www.mauldineconomics.com/connecting-the-dots/the-millstone-of-debt-and-the-dangers-of-junk-bonds/#.Vx-dtyK0iZ4.facebook). This country has a huge amount of gov and private debt and we’re not heading in the right direction.

    I don’t know who can fix it and deep down I have low expectations because the situation is really bad and may not be solvable in 4 or 8 years.

    Trump says he is big on the 2nd amendment. If that gets us to at least a solid 5 Americans vs 4 commies on the supreme court, then fine by me.

    I don’t know if Trump would deport 10 million mexicans and whatever number of moslems who are here on illegally and welfare but I do think he would at least deport any illegal guilty of a crime. obama kicks them out of jail and puts them back on the street. That wouldn’t change with clinton. Plus clinton would communize the SC. It is over at that point. No way to recover.

    So, for now, I agree 100% with the above article. I don’t care about any of the Trump stuff that other’s seem to. From the point of view of geeking up the libtards, it’s actually a plus.

    Ever since Newt Gingrich was our local US Rep, I will drop everything I am doing just to hear the guy talk. Newt is one of the brightest people to ever come along on the political stage. It’s too bad he didn’t survive the political fights. Maybe nobody can.

    I agree with everything Newt said about Trump. His raccoon analogy is a little rough, but does manage to convey the attitude of the America voter. Washington is broken, and we just want to get rid of the pests that currently occupy our White House.

    Z: I disagree strongly with you in this statement: ” First, for the record; there is no way millions of illegals are going to be deported, Trump or no Trump; in a few years, I hope I’ve been proven wrong, trust me, but it ain’t happening’.”

    The short answer is, “never say never”. We don’t need to round up millions of people to ship them off to Mexico. All we have to do is to ask these people to go home, and then enforce the already in place workplace laws, Millions of these illegal aliens will pack their bags, and pay their own way home.

    Oh, have I forgotten the millions of anchor babies? First of all, we don’t have to send legal anchor babies out of the country with their parents. It will be the parents decision as to what to do with the children. Is being bad or unreasonable on my part? Maybe, but everyone of these illegal aliens made the decision to take the risk that they would be allowed to stay.

    Any responsible parent would either find a kins-person keep the kids, or take them home to Mexico, Honduras, or wherever.

    The only rounding up we would have to do is to jail the employers who employ illegals, and cheat them out of wages. These aliens are not stupid. If you remember when the Great Recession recently caused a coupld of million aliens to go back to Mexico. The same thing will happen when we enforce work place laws.

    Things are not complicated, nor are they cruel. These people have chosed to live a risk-based life, and it’s time they understood the consequencies of their choice.

    OTH: I could be talked into some sort of amnesty. Yes, I am a Republican and a conservative, Neither of these positions calls for throwing people out of the country.

    I’ve been convinced Politicians have given up on solving anything. They don’t have the intellect for it and the attraction to the alternative to solving things – Stealing Massive Amounts of Money- is too strong for them to remain virtuous if they ever were.

    I think people, when they get a certain level of rich want something more. For the clintons the more is more money and power, For someone like Bill Gates, the more is knowing he did something decent with his riches like having cured Polio before taking the big ride. I don’t know which one of these Trump would emulate, but a standard issue politician with only a few million stashed away will not break the mold of taking the candy and kicking the can down the road.

    Some French politicians are getting the heat and Vals’s wife is too for other criminal activities it looks like. Oh boy I’d give a lot of money to see all these phony aristocratic politicians put behind bars. (But deep down I want the guillotine back :D)

    Oh yea…, Chirac, Kofi Anon were as dirty as they come. Now Cameron, Hollande, Merkel, all the other current players. I really am convinced it is all a brass ring game and that’s it. Get elected, get rich, party on, and then party on afterwards for the duration. I don’t know that it’s ever been any different actually.

    Which makes me chuckle when peole look to have government ‘do something for them’. I’m even susceptible, but all I really want/would accept is for the beast to be put back in her box for at least another 4 years.

    It is the people who will have to bring the guillotine back. How bad will it need to get before that happens. Rhetorical question.

    I do believe it’s become the Rich Club with the central bank system to make sure their financial assets are being stabilized. The Founding Fathers must roll in their graves.

    Imp..what pandering? She’s smart and deserves the job. Isn’t Cruz ‘pandering’ by picking a woman? When will this thinking stop? And what an insult to Patton…who’d never tell people in public someone else ate “disgusting!”…

    FB …..glad no other candidate “power hungry”..(sarcasm here!) .they all are, in every country…Cruz hasn’t shown it in any way more than others, in my opinion. And believe me, I’m not big fan of Cruz, tho I know he IS the most cons. of them all..and he’s shown it

    ALL: it boils down to what I talked about the other day “TRUST”….if we don’t have that in our gov’t, what chance have we got?
    And we don’t…and probably won’t again.

    Z said: “you’re pulling my leg, right?” Well, no. It is well known that the recent, severe recession caused lots of Mexicans to go home until things got better in the USA. The little secret of asking them to go home is akin to a bouncer asking me to vacate the bar. The request has some muscle behind it.

    The muscle behind asking the illegals to go home is that if they choose to stay, they will have to find a way to finance their illegal living. By punishing the employers severely for cheating on the law, and the wages of the illegals, the message will propagate faster than the speed of light that there is no profit in remaining.

    Of course, there will be many that decide to stick around until the storm blows over, and that’s the time to hire some Greyhound buses. Yep, let’s make it easy for them to leave. No jail for Mexicans headed south. Automatic expulsion for any kind of breaking the law, including speeding and parking tickets. Illegals will be fair game for local, state, and federal law enforcement.

    So, you see there probably won’t be any need for boxcars and prison buses to get rid of the illegals. I realize that this is a proposal, but there is support in principle because of the thousands that self-deported during Obama’s Great Recession. Make no mistake. It’s all about the money.

    Bob, Cut off the free benefits too. HC, school, hell they probably get anything the welfare people get which is everything – phone, computer, apartment, bills paid. Cut that off with 2 or 3 months notice and yes, they will deport themselves.

    Bob “The muscle behind asking the illegals to go home is that if they choose to stay, they will have to find a way to finance their illegal living. By punishing the employers severely for cheating on the law”…that’s a WHOLE different story.
    Your paragraph about asking them and expecting to leave stunned me but it makes sense WHEN YOU INCLUDE the punishment side of it.
    Well done..xx

    Kid..yes, cut EVERYTHING off…particularly medical care; While I HATE TO SAY THAT, I REALLY do, i can’t TELL you how many people I’m hearing can’t see their doctors because the docs are SO backed up because now the gov’t’s paying for EVERYONE….Of course, then the Left scares us with “You want TB?” Ya, well, TB is ON THE RISE AGAIN after having been dealt with, until the illegals started coming over in droves, so let’s talk GOING HOME, not more medical care.

    Honestly, I know this is an unpopular suggestion, but if they GO HOME, it’d be cheaper to help them out THERE than HERE!! For a while, anyway.
    Let their stinkin’ leaders pay for them once we’ve got them GONE and their gov’t convinced they are NOT COMING BACK HERE…

  58. On the healthcare front, we can no longer afford the resources sponged up by unfunded illegal immigrants. From the vast network of dental clinics that are Medicaid mills, to the anchor babies born at our charity hospitals, to the unfunded care given by our E.D. doctors and surgeons across the U.S. – we can no longer afford this. It is at the expense of our own working class poor and elderly. They deserve better. Healthcare comes down to allocation of resources. The same is being siphoned off by illegal immigrants.
