As I poke around the internet dumpster fire for salvageable scraps that amuse me, I tripped over this. It’s Good.
It’s good because it points out not just how the ruling class yahoos who refused to vote for Trump (like, say, Kelly Ayotte) were not just wrong, they are WHY WE HAVE TRUMP!
If we had listened to Never Trump, we’d have voted for Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit and we would not only have Merrick Garland (or worse) on the SCOTUS but now she’d be picking another pinko who agrees with the lib bloc that the First Amendment has hitherto unknown asterisks that prevent conservatives from using it, that a bunch of other rights that aren’t in the Constitution actually are, and that the Second Amendment stuff about not infringing on our right to keep and bear arms really means libs can totally infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. Let’s leave aside our booming economy and crushing ISIS and pulling out of the climate scam and maybe peace with North Korea. Just these two Supreme Court picks makes Trump the most important and successful conservative president since The Big R. And we wouldn’t have any of it if that nattering pack of insufferable sissies had had their way.
I have another reason for loving this. GraniteGrok punches in both directions, based on principle, not party or politics. The party of registration does not protect you from our commentary.
Nor will it ever. New Hampshire has no shortage of nattering insufferable sissies who care more about the politics (and what the national natterers think) than the effect of the product of their political exercise here in New Hampshire.
I only wish we had more time or more writers to investigate and remark on more of them more often because they aren’t going away (though we are working on that).
Neither is the fact that a majority of us at the Grok were very much of the same mind as Mr. Schlicther during the Presidential Primary.
A lot of us had our doubts, but Trump assuaged them by doing something we never expected to see a GOP politician actually do – keep his promises. I was hardcore anti-Trump long ago – I was not Never Trump, only Never Hillary. I was loud and proud for Ted Cruz, with zero trust in a New York playboy whose attachment to conservative ideology seemed intermittent at best.
There was no shortage of Trump trashing on GraniteGrok, but in the end, like Kurt, we were always Never Hillary, and that meant supporting Trump.
As I noted more than once after he’d won the primary, for the sake of Supreme Court Justices alone we needed to stop the Clinton machine. We did.
He has yet to disappoint us on judges at any level.
Here’s to hoping he does better than his Republican predecessors. The survival of the nation may depend on it.
