8/5/15, "Why I Support Donald Trump – Part 2," The Conservative Treehouse, sundance
"People are having difficulty trying to figure out why I’m supporting Donald Trump with such severity. So let me explain.
I’ve already explained the specifics of what is ahead and how ONLY JEB BUSH will win the primary in – PART ONE--“The Tripwires”. And I’ve expanded it for further explanation--HERE--and--HERE.
Regardless of how much you support a “NON-JEB” if you, as a conservative, vote for Walker, Perry, Cruz, Jindal, Rubio et al you will get JEB BUSH out of the GOPe machine.
Expecting a different outcome is like standing at that soda machine that gives you diet ginger ale regardless of which button you push....Putting your money in the same GOP machine over and over, only leaves you standing there with...yet another Jeb Bush.
Stop being a co-dependent, and don’t worry about walking to a different, perhaps unfamiliar, vending machine. Also, don’t worry about expressing an opinion that you don’t trust Trump; or Trump doesn’t pass your litmus test of (fill in the blank). Neither are the issue.
I have been transparent with my personal support for Donald Trump, and the specific reason for it.
I want the GOPe machine torn down, dispatched to earth orbit, and nuked...regardless of consequence, because I’m sick of having to be brutalized and used by Republican liars hiding within it. Period.
|Face of GOP E, Haley Barbour|
Walker, Bush, Rubio, Kasich, Perry, Christie, Huckabee et al will never destroy the GOPe machine, they themselves are part of the apparatus.
Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have shown an inability and unwillingness to do it. Sorry to deliver the bitter pill of reference, but see VA, KY and MS primary 2014 – they supported the CoC McConnell/Boehner team. They lost me with their self-serving refusal to charge, when charging mattered most.
Carson, Fiorina and Jindal, all good people, are dependent on $$$ and therefore unable to walk into the office and destroy the people who purchased it for them.
Pataki, Gilmore, Graham or other, are all part of the problem – not the solution. So who does that leave me with?
I want the Republican ‘Big Government’ Party, as it is currently constructed, destroyed. DESTROYED. I want it replaced with America First Conservatism. However, that said, I am clear-eyed that Trump is quite possibly not the guy to rebuild. And that’s OK.
I supported Scott Brown not to support Scott Brown, but to stop Obamacare. I was clear-eyed that a Massachusetts Republican was not a deeply committed strain of constitutional conservatism (see Mitt Romney “severely conservative”).
The Scott Brown effort failed, but the effort was a valid fight. Scott Brown was a tool, a means to an end. The reason it failed was because the Democrats changed the rules (see Harry Reid and “reconciliation” in the Senate) after the loss.
Like Scott Brown, we need to use Trump to destroy the GOP. The effort might not succeed, but what is there to lose. They support:
¹Comprehensive immigration reform to include amnesty, ²
ObamaCare and ³
Just like pushing Scott Brown in January 2010, again, it’s another worthy endeavor. Once that’s done, and that also means phase 2 ridding the infection that is John Boehner and Mitch McConnell ideologues, then maybe we can rebuild an actual 2nd party – because right now there’s only one party, the uniparty of the GOP/DEM.
We have the most magnificent national classic car ever built – now in need of restoration."...

"The office of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) who represents the district including the southern border town of Laredo, provided Business Insider with photos showing just how bad the conditions are at one federal facility where some of these immigrants are being held. Cuellar's office said the photos were taken recently in a Customs and Border Protection facility in south Texas. The congressman's office declined to identify the exact source or location of the photos to protect the source's identity."....6/6/2014, "Sickening Photos Of The Humanitarian Crisis At US Border Detention Centers," Business Insider, Brett LoGiurato
US politicians erased the pesky US southern border in 2008:
In 2008 the William Wilberforce Act was passed by unanimous consent and signed by George Bush. It effectively erased the US southern border and provided no reason for the entire population of Central America not to move to the US in perpetuity, all expenses paid by chump US taxpayers:

"110th Congress...passed the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act in 2008 by unanimous consent, no less. The act did many things to combat human trafficking worldwide--including providing assistance to foreign governments to combat abuse and increasing penalties for trafficking crimes. A small portion of the bill concerned added protections for unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. border. Specifically, kids from noncontiguous countries would be transferred to the Health and Human Services Department for care and processing. HHS would then be authorized to appoint advocates for the children and could work to unite the kids with families or place them in foster care."...
