New York Times Needs to Release Trump Audio

Since Donald Trump announced his run for president on June 16th of 2015 we have all witnessed his meteoric rise to political stardom as from the start he has been saying everything the American people want to hear. From bringing jobs back to the United States from overseas to addressing the illegal immigration issue, Trump seems to have the answers to all of the problems plaguing our country. There’s only one problem, what experience does this individual have that truly makes him a viable candidate to become leader of the free world.

I agree it can be easy to get caught up in much of Trump’s rhetoric as he plays on the emotions of the American people much like what many liberal Democrats do and it is essential we all look past the emotional aspect of what he speaks about and get at the heart of what it is he stands for. We must vet Trump like we would any other candidate vying for the office of the president and be sure we hold him accountable. As is the case we must look into any and all allegations regarding his stance on things like immigration, a topic he speaks very strongly about.

According to BuzzFeed,

The New York Times is sitting on an audio recording that some of its staff believes could deal a serious blow to Donald Trump, who, in an off-the-record meeting with the newspaper, called into question whether he would stand by his own immigration views.

I get it that the source in question here is indeed the liberals beloved New York Times but nonetheless the Donald did an interview with them and I don’t necessarily think they would just make up the possibility that they have in their possession a recording like this.  The question then becomes do that have the balls to release this recording.  Just recently there reports surfaced that Trump intends to consider lobbying to have libel laws changed in this country as much of the reporting on him lately hasn’t been what one would call positive.  This would be the ultimate test as of late, a test that would really shed some light on Trump’s true colors with regards to how he would address a media outlet that would be willing to release some truly damaging audio against him.

Trump appeared on Hannity last night to address the concerns brought about by the New York Times and yet again we are met with his typical vagueness. Trump never really seems to get at the heart of the issues, he constantly speaks in platitudes explaining that we’re just going to get it done.  Never does he say how we are going to get it done, what the ramifications would be to the American people to fund said projects, and what the exact long term goals of the project include.

According to Politico,

“The New York Times is claiming today that they had an off-the-record conversation with you in January,” Hannity started.

“We had a board meeting, it was off-the-record, suddenly they leak it, it’s all over the place,” Trump said.

“They said it’s negotiable on the wall,” Hannity said in reference to Trump’s stance on Mexican immigration and his oft-stated promise to build a border wall.

“By the way it is negotiable. Things are negotiable,” Trump said. “I’ll make the wall 2 feet shorter or something.”
Trump was quick to add that the negotiation does not include nixing the idea altogether.

“Building it? Not negotiable.”

“Would it be negotiable about the 11 million?” Hannity pressed. “Maybe let some people stay if they register in a period of time?”

“I would say this,” Trump answered. “We will work out some system that’s fair, but we either have a country or we don’t. We need a border. We need a wall.”

So Trump is upset with the sudden leak from the New York Times, well Mr. Trump welcome to politics.  You want to run for President this is what you’re faced with and you simply cannot run around here crying about how you want to change libel laws because you don’t like the news coverage about you. And Trump finishes his time with Hannity like he does most of his speeches, concentrating on one of the issues that is near and dear to the American people, building the border wall.  I truly hope that if elected he is able to do what he is promising. I guess we’ll find out.

Do We Really Want Trump?

I haven’t really talked too much about the presidential debates or the candidates running for the nominations on either side as I try and concentrate on the here and now and reach out to the millennial generation to get them to understand the ramifications of what is taking place right before our very eyes.  But one cannot help but get caught up in the hoopla surrounding those vying for the presidential nomination on both sides of the aisle.

On the Republican side we have Trump who is a rabble rouser and is stirring things up speaking on issues we all want addressed, we have Ted Cruz who is the true Conservative of the bunch and has tried numerous cases before the Supreme Court and attended both Princeton and Harvard Law school, and Marco Rubio who many aren’t quite sure what he stands for as he has had differing opinions on issues like immigration.

I have also spoke about Bernie Sanders quite a bit because I feel that many in the millennial generation are beginning to buy into his ridiculous ideals that would lead us down the road to a socialistic society turning this country into something that would be unrecognizable within just a few years. With promises like free college for all and free healthcare the millennial generation is buying into his socialist style promises not realizing that eventually the rich who Sanders wants to foot the bill will eventually run out of money!

What I haven’t delved into much is the whole Trump debate and whether or not he would make a good president.

While it’s looking like Hillary Clinton is a lock for the Democrat nod for president, the Republican nomination is still up for grabs. We are now faced with the decision of whether or not we want to Trump who is looking more like a tyrant or Cruz who is an accomplished Conservative minded individual to represent us as our parties pick for president come 2016.

This divisiveness within the Republican party that is becoming more prevalent today is a direct result of the inaction of many of the Republicans we have elected into both the House and the Senate! We have seen much infighting within the Republican party over the last decade or so between the establishment and the tea party, the tea party that has really gained momentum over the past few years.  As more and more people are beginning to finally wake up to what’s going on, we are witnessing a quick rise in conservative minded individuals who are taking more of an interest in the Constitution.  The rise in the tea party and the witnessing of the rapid decline of the state of this country led me to gain more of an interest in the Constitution and motivated me to try and become more involved and do what I can to affect change.  I have been motivated to get the word out and speak to truth the constitutional principles this country was founded upon, that being life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This further exemplifies the importance of the upcoming election where we are faced with a decision that could not only affect the upcoming 4 to 8 years but could have lasting ramifications that may be felt for generations! We are seeing Trump gain in popularity as he is playing off of the anger and emotions of the American people. As I previously explained, the American people are fed up with the inaction of many of our representatives in both the House and the Senate and this has led to the blind following that Trump is receiving! A following that eerily resembles what we witnessed with Obama in 2008 and we all know how that turned out!

As time has gone by we have seen many of the conservatives become angry at the direction in which this country is headed.  We have seen anger on social media, in the news, at protests, and each step along the way we have seen the radical left sit there at push the narrative about the “right wing nuts” as they like to refer to many of us as.  And then along comes an individual who truly said what we all conservatives wanted to hear.  This individual spoke about building a wall along our border with Mexico that we have wanted since the Reagan administration, this individual played on the fear and trepidation against muslims after various terror attacks, this person leverage any and every news incident of the day to his advantage to play on the heartstrings of the american people to get them riled up and motivated to affect change.  

While this all sounds dandy, but one must take a step back and truly ask themselves is the decision I’m making to back whoever it is one decides to back for the presidential bid a rational one. Am I acting based on emotion, or am I acting based I  sound reasoning and logic? Am I acting based upon my anger and frustration over the state of this country which is a direct result of the wussy Republicans in Congress who refuse to stand up for what it is we elected them to do? Please ask yourself these questions and do your due diligence before you make your decision as the ramifications of the decision you make could be felt for a long time to come!
