PostHeaderIcon Denninger on Trump

I have always respected the opinions of Karl Denninger of Market-Ticker.org, “So Post Debate, What Happened?“:

Who won last night’s debate?

Trump. And he wasn’t there.

Who lost? Fox News, which led the “debate” with a cheap shot at Trump. Megyn did herself no favors in that regard, and she had better hope that nothing ever disrupts the media oligopoly (a losing bet, IMHO) as if it does she’s going to find her best and highest calling in Nevada somewhat outside of Clark County.

The program Trump put together, with essentially zero notice, was very nice. It was the best political speechifying and rallying that I’ve seen since I have been sentient enough to pay attention to it. It was so because it was uplifting and yet not promotional for oneself; it was in fact selfless.

Trump instead took to praise other people, to uplift others, and instead of raising funds for himself and his political ambitions he managed to pop up somewhere north of $6 million for veterans with one of those millions being his, personally.

Personally, I didn’t exactly register ‘selfless’; but in comparison to what was occurring three miles up the road, certainly not overtly self-serving. BTW, for those who have not lived in Nevada, Clark Co. is the one containing Las Vegas, and is the only Nevada county where prostitution is outlawed.  😉

After a good discussion of our global posture, and the immigration issue, he concludes:

Trump is not anti-immigration; he is anti cheating and jumping the line. He’s an immigrant and he knows it; so are family members. But every one of them in his lineage and family did it the right way.

Might Trump be a lying snake on both of these points?

Maybe.

But then again, maybe not. And as things stand right now if you have a desire to see either of those things become front and center in America, two points that will be central to halting and reversing the decay of this nation, there is only one candidate who says he will do these things.

All the rest are saying in plain English that they’ll do the opposite.

How many more jobs do you want to lose and how many more of our American servicemen and women do you want to have missing legs — or lives?

That’s your choice folks.

Do read the good stuff in the middle. ◄Dave►
