Suffice it to say, that the bulk of the Patriot community stands in steadfast support of the Constitution, particularly, the Bill of Rights. Patriots expect the government to serve people over corporations and hold government officials accountable when they are guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. It is quite apparent that Cruz, Rubio and Kasich have failed miserably in this regard as all three candidates, in one way or another, are responsible for the mess that the country presently finds itself in. Clinton is the harbinger for all that is wrong with American politics. Sanders only appeals to Americans who want something for nothing and view government as their own personal third parent. By process of elimination, it is easy to see why Donald Trump should be, and would be, the people’s choice. However, this doesn’t answer the question, is Donald Trump truly an ally of the strong, conservative base in this country, known as the Patriot community?
Trump On a Critical Patriot Issue
Hillary Clinton is the most dangerous person in America. She is vulnerable. Trump could take her down, today, if he chose to do so. We don’t need Benghazi or the email scandal to do so. We only need to expose her relationship with criminal BLM. Trump has taken us half way there. Will he finish the job?
One of my readers recently sent me a published account of a story run by the Reno Gazette-Journal, which was published right before last month’s Nevada Republican Primary. The story was a collection of statements containing criticisms of the BLM and their heavy-handed ways when it comes to interacting with local ranchers and farmers. The statements were issued by none other than Donald Trump.
In the article, Trump made the point that the BLM’s steadfast resistance to releasing land, in combination with Trump’s hot-button issue, namely the failure to enforce immigration laws, is “damaging the economy, lowering the standard of living and inhibiting natural economic growth.”
As I perused what Trump wrote, I was hopeful that he would condemn Hillary Clinton for her illegal complicity involving the BLM, which amounted to treason against the American people. I had hoped that I would read that Trump would bemoan the needless and avoidable execution of an unarmed Lavoy Finicum for daring to challenge the BLM’s terrorist tactics against the lifeblood of the country, the farmers and the ranchers.
Unfortunately, Trump did not address any of these critical issues, but this is what Trump did have to say about the BLM:
“The BLM controls over 85 percent of the land in Nevada. In the rural areas, those who for decades have had access to public lands for ranching, mining, logging and energy development are forced to deal with arbitrary and capricious rules that are influenced by special interests that profit from the D.C. rule-making and who fill the campaign coffers of Washington politicians. Honest, hardworking citizens who seek freedom and economic independence must beg for deference from a federal government that is more intent on power and control than it is in serving the citizens of the nation.” In and around Clark County, the situation is even worse,” as Trump referred to the now infamous Bundy Ranch standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada. Trump did raise one salient point in the article when he stated that “Because the BLM is so reluctant to release land to local disposition in Nevada, the cost of land has skyrocketed and the cost of living has become an impediment to growth.”
At least Trump covered the fraud issue involving the BLM and their pandering to special interests. However, he did not go far enough and Trump failed to make this issue of the young campaign, the issue that it should become.
Mr. Trump, please allow me to show you how woefully short you came up in describing the BLM as a rogue, terrorist and organized crime organization.
