This is Donald Trump on the latest horror killing in Israel. Read it, and you realize it's not the Trump you thought you knew.
I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the outrageous terrorist shootings that took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and wounded at least twenty others in Tel Aviv yesterday.
The Israeli security forces' investigation is ongoing, but some facts have already emerged - and they are grim.
Just as fast as the condolences arrive from the civilized world is the praise arising out of the uncivilized one. Hamas praised the attack, calling the attackers "heroes."
Reports out of Hebron indicate that residents of the terrorists' hometown lit up the night sky with celebratory fireworks. One Palestinian "news organization" even referred to the shootings, in which the assailants dressed up as observant Jews, as a "Ramadan treat." The leader of Hamas called the injured terrorist a "hero."
How despicable!
The American people stand strong with the people of Israel, who have suffered far too long from terrorism.
Israel's security is a matter of paramount importance to me and the American people.
We understand all too well the unspeakable horror that terrorism unleashes. To address it - and address it we must! - we must recognize the parallel horror of the culture of religious hatred that permeates many Palestinian quarters. From schools that indoctrinate toddlers to grow up to kill Israelis to the daily menu of hate that spews forth from various "news organizations," change is long overdue in the Palestinian territories.
Let us begin the arduous task of creating a future where peace can take root and terror finds no refuge.
I express my deepest condolences to the families of the four Israelis who were murdered, as well as my wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded.
Donald J. Trump
So you think Trump can't string two sentences together? You must've been listening to enemy propaganda again. It's a lie, and the above proves it.
Donald Trump shoots with two barrels. One barrel draws the media to him, like flies eating horse droppings. That's the outrageous Trump, and the newsies can't avoid feeding off the rich horse dessert prepared by Trump every day.
Every media face in the world is hypnotically attracted to Trump committing spectacular political suicide. They hope. But they are deluded.
Trump's second barrel has been barking more often, as Trump makes his expected pivot to acting and speaking presidentially.
I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the outrageous terrorist shootings that took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and wounded at least twenty others in Tel Aviv yesterday.
Does that sound like a cussing fool? No. Does it sound like Barry Soetoro X Obama? No.
It sounds like a morally serious American candidate for president.
Trump's second shotgun barrel is beginning to bark. The media can't hear it, because they are paying attention only to the first barrel. But the second barrel has been banging away, first infrequently, then more often.
Trump's supporters know about that second barrel. That's why they like Trump.
The media can't understand the real Trump narrative now emerging. They don't speak the language. Paul Ryan is deaf to it. Mitt Romney is confused. Susan Collins says she is "appalled." Poor Susan has been gobbling up the Party Line Media for years, and she constantly confuses the media with the truth.
But U.S. vets, military people, cops, and conservatives who read history - they have been hearing those second-barrel barks all along.
Trump's supporters now hear the second barrel sounding louder and louder. Trump spent four years in a rigorous military school, ending up as head of cadets. He learned the Cadet Code, and he saw the U.S. military at work during the Cold War.
At that time, even Democrats understood and supported our anti-Soviet strategy, both civilian and military parts.
Trump doesn't care much about political parties, but most of his life was spent on the right side of the Cold War. Our side, that is. It was a formative experience, as we can now see. Cadet Trump is a morally serious person. The Israel statement shows it, and it applies to America's enemies, who also happen to be Israel's.
The two-barreled strategy is straight George Patton: hold 'em by the nose, and kick 'em in the rear. Patton beat the fiercest German panzer battalions with that strategy in North Africa and Sicily, then in France and Germany.
In tank battles, your advance units engage the enemy in what looks like the main attack, so the opposing side pours its resources in responding to your "attack." Then your "main attack" breaks away while your counter-attack hits the enemy in all his weak spots.
This is fast mobile warfare at all levels, from the smallest to the largest units, and you're constantly hitting and breaking off, hitting and breaking off, suckering the enemy to think you're attacking from one direction while you send your main force to hit them very hard where they don't expect it. Our Sherman tanks were smaller and lighter than the main Nazi battle tanks, but we had twice as many of them, and they could swarm and surround the huge panzers from many points of the compass. Keep moving, always hit where they don't expect it, always take the initiative tactically and strategically, strike and break off, strike and break. Wear them down.
It's Patton's "hold 'em by the nose, and kick 'em in the rear." It's Muhammad Ali's "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Trump knows this stuff.
The only question is how to transfer it to election P.R. That's Trump's discovery. Get into the enemy's decision cycle. But Trump is his own decision cycle. Hillary is dragged down by her huge logistics train. Obama has to consult his failed novelist scriptwriter before saying anything. By the time he talks, all the spontaneity is gone.
In the coming weeks, we'll hear the morally serious Trump more and more. Terrorism is the mass murder of innocents and has been seen as such since Clausewitz and before. The academic left, in its bottomless ignorance, can't tell the difference between regular, self-disciplined armies and mobs of rapist murderers. Leftists think it's all the same. Churchill said they can't tell the difference between the fire and the fire brigade. They honestly can't, and that ignorance will defeat them in the coming election. Obama is already sniffing at the bait. But Trump is not going to waste his ammo on last year's target.
Notice that Trump has been looking more serious also, as war commanders must. They can't afford to look like fools, because their first job is to earn the trust of their troops. That red trucker's hat has a marked resemblance to Patton's helmet: straight over the eyes to block the sun, like a pair of stern eyebrows. Obama probably wears his golfing cap backward.
The media is fighting the last war, which, for them, is Vietnam. Their enemy is LBJ and Nixon. But Trump is running rings around them.
We'll see surprises, because the enemy has to be kept reeling. Trump may change his bag of tricks now and then. But this is the ball season as I see it.

Do we really want another schmuck in the White House with zero military experience? Maybe he will pick Ted Nugent as a running mate

Vote for hillary then, or vote for some third party schmuck (which is a vote for hillary). I understand people's disdain for Trump, but in our present two party system, where the candidates have already been chosen, you just have to ask yourself, who do you think will be better for America?

This would be a pretty good time to have a "Like Button".

I still refuse to believe that out of over 300 million people these are the 2 options we have. There has to be at least 250 million people I'd rather vote for given the option.

With all the discussions going on to oust Chump at the convention there seems to be a very good possible candidate that could take a ton of votes out of Hillary's greedy corrupt hands and destroy the Chump as well and that would be Condoleeza Rice if they can get her to accept a nomination at the convention. She has already refused the idea of being VP to Chump.

I would vote for you over Trump if we could get you nominated.

Well just prepare for another President Clinton because that is what you are pushing for. Condoleeza Rice would be a great candidate but she won't go for it. I think she has had all the political life she is interested in. Face the facts. It will be Trump vs Clinton and any vote other than Trump is a Clinton vote and anyone abstaining from voting might as well go ahead and vote for Clinton because the result will be the same. I didn't like Romney either but I voted for him because he was the best choice. Same with George Bush and his father. Neither were my first choice but they were the only choice once it came down to the general election.

Well we will see what the Republican Party does come next month in Cleveland. I suspect all hell is going to break loose. God help us.

If republicans and the republican party would spend half as much energy backing Trump as the do trying to discredit him, this election would be in the bag. If they keep up with this ****, they are handing the election to the democrats.

Honestly I'm not a big fan of Trump either, but the voters have spoken and he was the last man standing. I'd much rather have him in office than the only other candidate that has a chance of winning.

^^^ Exactly^^^

If people don't get their head out of their A$$ and take themselves to the voting booth and vote for Trump in November, your just casting a vote for the left.

It amazes me of the people that stand firm for the constitution and even concrete firm for the 2nd amendment, however they voice they refuse to vote for Trump or vote at all.

Sent from a final firing position, the crosshairs are on you!

Why would we vote in a scumbag that has no morals or ethics to destroy this country just because he is popular? You guys remind me of Nazi Germany and the induction of Adolph Hitler. Donald Trump is not qualified to run a row boat much less this country. He is every bit as crooked as Hillary. No one has to try to discredit him as he does that to himself so well.He is not a conservative nor does he have any integrity. He also refused to serve this country and now he thinks he is qualified to run it. Military service should be a mandatory requirement for the job.
The man is a weasel!
If we do not get a decent candidate in the race Hillary will win for sure.

Because he is better than the alternative. Period. End of discussion as far as I am concerned. Just like in every election since Ronald Reagan left office you have to choose between the lesser of two evils. It's not rocket science.

Does anybody still believe Trump can beat HRC? Trump had the perfect opportunity after Orlando but under performed. I can't imagine four years of her. But anything would be better than Obama. Even Jimmy Carter. Hopefully, HRC will pound ISIS in Raka.

What makes him the lesser?
I am taking a serious look at the other candidates unless the GOP gets a real candidate in place. I will not vote for any of the three stooges (Bernie, Donald or Hillary).

Grump, I feel your pain. Don't like him and never have. Also don't trust him. But I'll still pull the level just to try and keep HRC out of the WH. But, I don't see it even being close. Maybe it will change. I'll dream. But figured it would be the perfect storm (ie: Trump) for her to get in.

Trump doesn't say the Supreme Court has it all wrong when ruling on the 2nd amendment and pledge to go after the guns.

Think about what will happen when HRC appoints 1-2 or 3 far left Supreme Court justices in the next 4 to 8 years.

Hmmm, let's see. For one there has never been any accusations made that he murdered anyone or had anyone murdered. To the best of my knowledge he has never defended child rapist's and laughed about getting them off with a light sentence knowing they were completely guilty. Never intimidated victims of his spouses rape victims. I could go on for a while but it would appear that you have your mind made up so why waste my time. Here is a little reading of just a few reasons, though I am sure you won't bother reading it: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics...roversies-from-whitewater-to-benghazi/396182/

This is the same scenario that her husband was in 1992, Clinton, Dole and Perot in the race, Perot came away with 20 million votes, Clinton won by I think less than 10 mil. Do the math, maybe woulda, coulda, or shoulda, but by taking away votes, you jeopardize the election. Same thing again, 3rd candidate will throw the election toward the dims. Wake up and smell the coffee. :)
