Trump is the man

It is clear that Trump had this scandal in his pocket ready to fire at Ted Cruz for some time.

Why did he not deploy it earlier?

He deployed it now because Ted Cruz went after Trump’s wife.

Trumps biggest political advantage is that he cares about things that are more important than political advantage.

With every other politician on the face of earth you ask the question “Is it to his advantage to harm me?”

With Trump, the man, you have to ask the question “Will this piss off the Trump?”

Don’t piss off the Trump. He rewards those who do right to him, and harms those who do wrong to him. He is the man.

    The US is dying from a million cuts. Part of the reason the USA is a nanny police state now is that whenever there is a problem, the kneejerk reaction in the US is to call for a new law.

    Nanny state laws are not the best solution, however. Nanny state laws lead to more laws, higher fines, and tougher sentences. Thirty years ago, DWI laws were enacted that led to DWI checkpoints and lower DWI levels. Seatbelt laws led to backseat seatbelt laws, childseat laws, and pet seatbelt laws. Car liability insurance laws led to health insurance laws and gun liability laws. Smoking laws that banned smoking in buildings led to laws against smoking in parks and then bans against smoking in entire cities. Sex offender registration laws led to sex offender restriction laws and violent offender registration laws.

    Nanny state laws don’t make us safer, either. Nanny state laws lead people to be careless since they don’t need to have personal responsibility anymore. People don’t need to be careful crossing the street now because drunk-driving has been outlawed and driving while using a cellphone is illegal. People don’t investigate companies or carry out due diligence because businesses must have business licenses now.

    The main point of nanny state laws is not safety. The main purposes of more laws are control and revenue generation for the state.

    Another reason laws are enacted is because corporations give donations to lawmakers to stifle competition or increase sales.

    Many laws are contradictory, too. Some laws say watering lawns is required, while other laws say watering lawns is illegal.

    Many nanny state laws that aim to solve a problem can be fixed by using existing laws. If assault is already illegal, why do we need a new law that outlaws hitting umpires?

    Nanny state laws are not even necessary. If everything was legal would you steal, murder, and use crack cocaine? Aren’t there other ways to solve problems besides calling the police? Couldn’t people educate or talk to people who bother them? Couldn’t people be sued for annoying behavior? Couldn’t people just move away? Even if assault was legal, wouldn’t attackers risk being killed or injured, too? Having no laws doesn’t mean actions have no consequences.

    If there is no victim, there is no crime.

    We don’t need thousands of laws when we only need 10.

    Freedom is not just a one way street. You can only have freedom for yourself if you allow others to have it.

    Think. Question everything.

      That is the libertarian argument.

      The fallacy of the libertarian argument is that if a white college student smokes dope, he harms no one except, perhaps, himself. If a black with no job smokes dope, he probably robbed a house a short time ago, robbed a passer by with a knife an hour ago to buy or steal that dope, and is about to cut up someone for the hell of it.

      » If there is no victim, there is no crime.

      typical souls nonsense. Some post-christians go so autistic with their souls belief that they tell people they don’t even eat plants because they don’t want to victimize plants. The idea that an action can be morally neutral if we can’t immediately identify a victim flies in the face of the first commandment ever: go forth, be fruitful, and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. That commandment doesn’t come from Jehovah, it’s older than the gods, as old as life itself.

      » We don’t need thousands of laws when we only need 10.

      Great applause line christcuck. Now explain which of the ten commandments regulates divorce, separation, marital rape, marital sodomy, dowries/brideprices, age of marriage, criteria for legal abortion, treatment of bastards…

      » Freedom is not just a one way street. You can only have freedom for yourself if you allow others to have it.

      okay, sure, but since the individual’s desires aren’t necessarily the same as what’s good for the nation, there needs to be some way to suppress the individual’s freedom to prevent tragedy of the commons stuff, like, for example, the way dating works for teenagers and twentysomethings

      » Think. Question everything.

      that’s what you end your post with? The most ironic slogan of the 20th century? Your entire post is a compendium of 20th century slogans and none of what you have written will be viewed as reasonable in the 21st century, starting with your first line about the paper cuts. The US is dying because of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, because of cuckstains who passed it, because the US was conquered in the middle of the 19th century by the descendants of Puritans.

  2. […] at Jim’s Blog, he has a couple laudatory notes on The Donald: Trump & Israel and Trump is the man. Also, the naming of “The Big Hiatus” is a certain harbinger of Global Warmist […]

    Did you see this Trump quote on marriage? sounds like his previous wives wanted to control him. Via Mike Cernovich.

    “I wish I’d had a great marriage. See, my father was always very proud of me, but the one thing he got right was that he had a great marriage. He was married for 64 years. One of my ex-wives once said to me, ‘You have to work at a marriage’. And I said, ‘That’s the most ridiculous thing’, because my parents, they didn’t work at the marriage. If you have to work at a marriage, it’s not going to work. It has to be sort of a natural thing. But my ex-wife would say, ‘You have to work at this, you have to do this, you have to do that’. And I’m saying to myself, ‘Man, I work all day long, well into the evening. I don’t want to come home and work at a marriage. A marriage has to be very easy’. My father would come home, have dinner, and take it easy. It was the most natural marriage I’ve ever seen. And Melania (Melania Trump) makes my life easy; one of the things I so love about her is that she makes my life easier. I’ve never had anybody that made my life so easy. Now I hope that continues. Perhaps that will change. I intend to find out!”

    It is 3 or 4 days since the Cruz scandal broke and he is still going strong. Is Cruz covered in Teflon or what? How long will it take to get him off stage?

    This is a point I couldn’t figure out how to articulate at a party this weekend. It makes the rest of them, politicians and media, predictable and Trump plays them like the muppets they are. He said at one point that he was frustrated with having to put all his positions on the table while running because he wants to be unpredictable.

    Trump isn’t the first to exploit them, there’s also the Breitbart Strategy of slow leaks.

  6. Bob Wallace says:

    If I had eight billion dollars I’d have a hell of a good intelligence network. Just remember J. Edgar Hoover had files on everyone, and I suspect Trump does too. God knows what he has on the drunken lesbian Hillary Clinton.

    • Thales says:

      We’ll see what he has on Rodham after the primary.

      • peppermint says:

        I want to see someone bring up the time she dragged a 13 year old girl’s name through the mud to Atticus Finch a thirtysomething nigger.

        Daily reminder that WASP cuckstains planned the snivel rights exactly as they happened beforehand in Time Magazine in The American Malvern. Daily reminder that seeing White girls raped isn’t bad for your “soul”, but saying the word nigger is. Daily reminder that a cuckstain will sell his daughter to the niggers not just for the political advantage to be able to cuck us all later but for his “soul”.

  7. As usual Jim, you make me grin.

  8. Trump is the man for calling specifically Belgium, after having previously called ISIS infiltrators and making them the policy centerpiece of his campaign, at the time inspiring a chorus of I Can’t Even’s from every authority figure in both parties and the media.

    I seem to recall mentioning that we just need to be Men and many of our problems will begin to resolve.

    As for Trump being a Leader: Yes.

    We needed that too.

    Here we are.

    People have started looking through his tweets ( and found that Ted and Amanda, one of the accused, had an identical henna tattoo on the same day. Ted on that day turned up to a CNN interview without his jacket, while Amanda tweet a selfie of her tattoo, while wearing a male suit jacket.

  11. Brit says:

    Seems convenient that this stuff came out after Rubio dropped out, my guess is that it would have happened around now anyway. Also notice that “Lying Ted” is a double entente with the biblical meaning of “lie with”. Trump kept saying “he holds his bible high and then he lies”.

  12. jim says:

    Trump does things on the spur of the moment, without needing to run it past a focus group.

    He did not know in advance that Chicago was a setup, but sensed it at the last moment and changed course as necessary.

    I don’t know or much care if the accusation is true. What impresses me is that Trump goes after those who wrong him.

    • GameOn says:

      He has great instincts. He’ll make a good leader.

      • Mister Grumpus says:

        It’s fascinating, isn’t it, how our desires for a leader are actually so simple.

        Details details, tax calculus, IQ, education, table manners, whatever. Can we just have a guy who stands up for himself, isn’t afraid of scumbags, and gives preferential treatment to American citizens (so far exemplified by soldiers and cops, and now also by his immigrant wife Melania) over our enemies? Anyone?

        It’s a “bride of Christ” sort of thing, actually. Plenty of American men are kicked around, shat upon, feminized and helpless to do anything about it. So when Donald whups the ass of someone who disses on his woman, not only do we admire his principle and fearlessness in doing so, but ALSO, there’s a part of us who’s already identifying with HER in this situation, and feels safer and reassured behind his fangs. No-homo-brizzo, but it’s true. This is Kingly shit!

        (And then imagine how actual women must feel! Woo!)

        Yet one more reason why I love Donald. He’s teaching us about ourselves, so that we can finally BE ourselves, some of us for the first time.

        • Thales says:

          Trump is a master of rhetoric, and rhetoric is about connecting with people at a gut level. If connected at a gut level, will not question you overly much more details, will trust your judgement.

    • How do you know “He did not know in advance that Chicago was a setup”

      Isn’t it possible he scheduled to speak then and there precisely to provoke the attack, so he could withdraw? He certainly seemed to be calling out BLM earlier in the season, and Stone was talking of it being a Soros-Hillary project immediately after Chicago, so seems plausible they had advanced intelligence.

      BTW, Trump did spill the beans on the wife now:
      Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson rattled off a list of attacks three days after Trump first made the threat.

      “Spilling the beans is quite simple when it comes to Heidi Cruz,” Pierson said in an interview with MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki.

      “She is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who — in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure,” Pierson said.

      “Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for,” she added.

  13. With all due respect, its not clear that Trump was involved in the story breaking, unless you know something I don’t. Its clear that Rubio had been pushing the story. Its clear that a lot of people knew about it. I’m not saying its unlikely Trump somehow pushed them over the edge now to get it published, anymore than I’d say its unlikely Trump scheduled Chicago intending to cancel in the face of an expected protest or I’d say its unlikely Trump flapped his wings to mock the NY Times guy. Or etc. But probably, for some of these things, Trump just played solid chess and his opponents blundered.

  14. Alan J. Perrick says:

    It’s better to stay after the mestizos who have entered the U.S. rather than be sidetracked by Mahometans and their evil god Termagant. This is the best part of the story for me, that the red-man’s polygamous nature is eclipsing the news cycle for the Belgian story.
