The cat is out of the bag

Jim Rutenberg, a columnist for the New York Times, has finally let the cat out of the bag. As if we didn’t know the mainstream media are in the tank for the Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton, Rutenberg laid it all on the line. He summed up Donald Trump as someone playing to our darker tendencies of racism and nationalism. He addressed America’s journalist with this admonition: "If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional."


Rutenberg’s wild rantings against Trump sound strangely familiar. Saying "that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes" sounds just like the hysteria leveled against Ronald Reagan back when it looked like he might take down perhaps the most inept presidency in American history. Reagan was a cowboy, a wild man, a lunatic with his finger on the button.


Now, let me say, Donald Trump is no Ronald Reagan, but he’s just as dangerous to the liberal agenda as Reagan was. Back in Reagan’s day, the economy was in shambles. Today, our economy is certainly not as bad as 1979, but it’s the socialist policies of Barack Obama that make this the worst economic recovery in our history.


Trump’s policies would change that.


He would lower taxes across the board, which has stoked the economy every time it’s been tried. He would lower the corporate tax from 35 percent to 15 percent. That would undoubtedly stimulate industry and create jobs, but it doesn’t punish those evil corporations as the liberals would like.


He wants to stop the endless stream of illegals coming up from Mexico. That has been the one issue that has resonated with the American people. Both Democrats and Republicans have been afraid to run on it for the presidency for fear of alienating the Hispanic vote. Trump saw it for the national security and economic stabilization issue it is. What liberals see coming up from the border is an endless stream of votes. They see another group of people they can trap on government dependence and blackmail with welfare programs, ensuring Democrat rule in perpetuity.


Mr. Rutenberg at the Times is scared to death that Donald Trump is getting ready to destroy their plan to establish a liberal caliphate in America. He offered as evidence of Trump’s unfitness for office media manufactured stories like Trump’s supposed "fight with the family of a fallen American soldier." Or Trump’s supposed enticement of Russia "to meddle in a United States presidential election by hacking his opponent."


Just for the record, asking if a Muslim, who openly advocates sharia law over U.S. constitutional law, allowed his wife to speak at the Democrat convention is not fighting with the family. It may have been a question better left unasked, but it was the question on everyone’s mind.


Trump also joked that the Russians had Hillary’s missing 30,000 e-mails and the media would surely reward them if they released them. The liberal media acted as if they didn’t get the joke, instead accusing Trump of advocating a hack. Another ridiculous media fabrication.


But now we know the gloves are off. You can already see the hatchet stories all over the news. Donald J. Trump is the most dangerous man in America, according to the whacked-out libs in the media. They get in line behind Black Lives Matter and all the advocates of illegal aliens. If this is the crowd that’s most upset about a Donald Trump presidency, let’s do it.
