2023 nov 30 poll GOP frontrunners cropped
By Douglas V. Gibbs
On a text thread that was roaring last night during the December 6, 2023 GOP Debate, the last one before Iowa springs forth as the first of a string of 50 States during the 2024 Presidential Primary, I wrote this morning on the thread, “I didn’t watch the debate.  I had just eaten dinner, and I wanted to keep my meal down.”
Donald J. Trump is the leader of the pack by more than forty points, and the candidates on the stage are too busy playing “establishment inside baseball,” and refuse to see the reality of things.  DeSantis, for example, while scoffing at the polls that has Trump so far ahead, said, “I remember those polls in November, 2022; they said there was going to be a big red wave.  It was going to be monumental.  And that crashed and burned.  The place that didn’t crash and burn was in the State of Florida.”
Are the polls something to one-hundred-percent trust?  No.  Usually, the left twists them anywhere to five to fifteen percent in their direction.  Also, DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Chris Christie couldn’t conceive in their little brains that it might be possible that the cheat was on.  Election Fraud is a real problem, and it is also something we must figure out a way to overcome.  I believe there was a red wave, but the cheat killed it before the waves could come crashing upon the shore.  But, three of the knuckleheads on stage would never fathom that any issues regarding our elections exists, or they are too afraid to admit there might be election fraud in the system so as to not upset their leftist overlords.  As for Vivek Ramaswamy, who early on said things that revealed he believed that election fraud is not just some conspiracy theory, he has settled into a political seat that won’t mention it, likely because his advisers told him to stay away from it.
It’s amazing how much influence leftist talking points, media idiocy, and Cultural Marxism has on people who dare to call themselves Republicans.  
Chris Christie, who is in a real competition with Nikki Haley for the most leftist establishment puke award, took Democrat Party and media talking point influence to a whole new level when he decided to call Trump a “Dictator.”
Christie said, “Do I think he was kidding when he said he was a dictator?  All you have to do is look at the history.  And that’s why failing to speak out against him, making excuses for him, pretending somehow that he’s a victim, empowers him.”
Trump’s record as President of the United States was exactly the opposite of a dictator.  If there are any people acting like authoritarians in the White House, Obama and Biden fit the bill.  While Obama and Biden worked to dictate to you what you could buy, what products are aloud to be on the shelves, where your energy must come from, and what you must believe when it comes to sexual immorality and people running around confused because of their gender-dysphoria mental illnesses, under President Trump federal regulations were reduced, the free market was unleashed, choices without the federal government breathing down your neck became more available, and as a result the economy boomed.  As for Christie’s comment about what Trump has said about himself in regards to being a dictator, his slam against Trump was in reference to a discussion Number 45 had with Sean Hannity during Tuesday’s Townhall discussion.
Sean Hannity: “Do you in any way have any plans whatsoever if reelected President to abuse power, to break the law, to use the government to go after people?”
Donald Trump: “You mean like they’re using right now?  …  “I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill.  Other than that, I am not a dictator.”
In other words, on day one he plans to make those things happen regardless of the backlash.
The “dictator,” and “abuse of power,” and “fascist” accusations by the progressive, leftwing, commie Democrats and their allies are nothing more than projection, as Trump quipped.  They don’t like him because he opposes their establishment way of doing things, he’s an outsider they can’t control, and he makes sure things happen like a strong personality would, and should.  While Trump talks very forceful, never once did he operate anywhere near the authoritarian style of governance that the Democrats put out there.  The idea that he is a dictator is like calling him a racist; there’s no evidence, and it’s not true, but since they can’t win in the arena of ideas they lower themselves to name-calling.
In the end, DeSantis is considered a good conservative governor of a State only because he has a very good, conservative legislature that ensures his confused establishment mind doesn’t get in the way.  Nikki Haley is an establishment hack that’s in it for herself, and she’s proven that time and time again.  Chris Christie comes from the State of New Jersey and the only reason he looked faintly conservative in his role as governor of that State was because New Jersey is doing all it can to be like California, and he was willing to stand against some of those crazy commie ideas, and I don’t care who you are … if you are not hard left and you stand next to people as communist as New Jersey’s establishment, or someone that even politically resembles Gavin Newsom, you are going to look pretty conservative.  As for Vivek Ramaswamy, he’s probably the most conservative of the bunch, but he doesn’t have the staying power to pull it off, he’s off on a handful of issues, and he’s not eligible anyway (nor is Nikki Haley) because as per Vattel’s Law of Nations (and a whole string of other pieces of evidence), a Natural Born Citizen is a person whose parents were both citizens at the time of the birth of the child, and Vivek’s Cincinnati birthplace is fine for citizenship, but his parent’s still officially being Indian Citizens at the time doesn’t cut the mustard for presidential eligibility.
And, as I indicated earlier, Trump is forty points up, which is more than enough to win it all despite the fact the left might be playing with the numbers (which tells me he’s probably actually more than fifty points up).  The question is not whether or not Trump will be the GOP nomination; the real question is whether or not his campaign will be able to gain enough votes to overcome the cheat the Democrats have planned, yet again.

  1. Doug, I appreciate your unwavering support of Donald Trump, but I think your vitriol concerning the other candidates is uncalled for and not a good position for you to take. As to your use of Vattel’s Law of Nations to back your position on whether a person is eligible to be president, that particular document is not, and was not law and if it were or if it were a significant resource, it would be referenced in the Constitution, which it is not. “Natural Born Citizen” is not a constitutionally defined term and to attempt to define it now is reinterpreting the existing constitution to fit your personal belief.


  2. You wrote in part, “As for Vivek Ramaswamy, he’s probably the most conservative of the bunch…”
    Thanks for acknowledging this. You continued,
    “but he doesn’t have the staying power to pull it off” (I acknowledge you may be correct)

    You wrote, “he’s off on a handful of issues…”
    Which ones Doug? He is anti woke, pro-business, anti IRS, and many other positions I favor. You continue “and he’s not eligible anyway (nor is Nikki Haley)” and then you wrote of his presidential ineligibility.
    Yet that did not stop Obama nor the current Vice President. Thoughts?
