Donald Trump at the Birth of the Tea Party

Tea Party support for Donald Trump has some people gasping in amazement, because it was not reciprocated during the Tea Party’s heyday. Here’s what The Donald had to say about Tea Party bête noire Obama on April 15, 2009, the day the movement really took off:

Well, I think he’s sort of a guy that just has a wonderful personality, a good speaker, somebody that people trust. And I also think that the comparison with his predecessor is so different — it’s so huge that it really has made a great impact on people.

I think that he’s really doing a nice job in terms of representation of this country. And he represents such a large part of the country.

I mean, to think that a black man was going to be elected president — I watched television for years where the great political analysts were saying maybe in 50, maybe in 100 years.

Here’s a man that not only got elected, I think he’s doing a really good job.

Now, the sad part is that he can’t just do a good job. He’s got to do a great job. Because if he does a good job, that’s not good enough for this country. That’s how bad the country has become.

When he was asked by Larry King whether he supported the Tea Party, Trump replied, “I don’t march with the Tea Party,” before going on to defend the TARP bailouts that helped inspire it.

That same year he hosted two fundraisers for the odious moonbat Charlie Crist. The next year he supported Harry Reid against Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle.

Forgive a little nostalgia; here’s what people in Phoenix were doing on 4/15/2009, while Trump was praising Obama and bailouts for fat cat crony capitalists, and denouncing America for being racist:

phoenix-tea-party-4-15-09

phoenix-tea-party-4-15-09

phoenix-tea-party-4-15-09

phoenix-tea-party-4-15-09

Now these same people are targeted by Trump, who has the endorsement of Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin.

Trump has changed a lot of positions since 7 years ago, but hasn’t changed enough to pass for a conservative. No one could seriously believe that a guy who favors socialized medicine, the Kelo decision, ethanol subsidies, high tariffs, and tax hikes is going to reduce the size of the government. Trump is running as a national socialist, even if he is the first one to advocate Affirmative Action.

At this point, maybe a national socialist is what it will take to shut off the ongoing tsunami of Third World immigration before the country is washed away. If only we could be sure he would do it. Building a wall won’t help if he leaves a giant open gate in the wall.

On a tip from Torcer.

    So what is the alternative? Cruz is clearly an establishment whore who has changed his position in a number of ways over the last few months. His wife’s CFR connections and background is creepy to say the least and not exactly helpful to any working American either. Most of the Republicans are establishment whores. No need to even talk of the offering by Team Duh! on the other side.

    In the end, whomever is elected still needs Congress to do some things. If he did nothing but stemmed the illegal tide and put some controls on immigration, that would help. I don’t agree with him on a single payer health system, interfering in Iran, or expanding the military. I thought invading Iraq was a stupid idea when it happened so I like he is talking about that to. Making friends with Putin would probably not be a bad idea.

    The Republican Party did a disservice to us Ron Paul supporters, so I don’t really bother to vote for any Republican. If Trump’s nomination and run destroyed the Republican Party, that would be a great thing.

  • Jill

    His wife was a minor cog, in the grand scheme of things. If being married to a woman that worked for a division that handled the retirement accounts for people who just wanted to put away money so they could avoid eating cat food five nights a week is reprehensible or her promotion of female business entrepreneurship in foreign lands, how can you support Trump? He flippantly tossed out the idea of nationalizing banks in that very same interview. Personally, I do not want to see the party destroyed and replaced with a thin skinned, socialist leaning fascist but to each their own.

  • MrRightWingDave

    I’ve been doubtful about Trump from the start, and have been very reluctant to jump on his bandwagon. Still, if it’s him against Hillary or Bernie, he’s got my vote.

  • Lentenlands

    The situation is very sad in America but I believe there is hope. I think you’re right about your understanding of Trump, however, I think there’s no political solution available; that door hasn’t been left open to us. Instead, I believe only a societal return to faith in Jesus Christ and the Bible as the foundation of American Law will change our plight in America.

    I believe the God the pagan political class has rejected as the Foundation of American law and His ejection from every public place and mention, particularly the dumbed down taxpayer funded indoctrination centers, has put the Nation into a position where we must decide our future based upon our choice of humbling ourselves, repenting and turning to Him.

    I believe America’s many problems hinge upon our relationship to Him. If America likes suffering and wants more suffering, just keep going along with the satanic “progressive” secular humanist agenda.

  • Dolan Trump

    “Nate Cohn crunches the statistics on Donald Trump’s supporters and reveals that the Donald “holds his greatest strength among registered Democrats who identify as Republican leaners.”

    Another mind-boggling conclusion set forth by Cohn is that registered Republicans are “one of Mr. Trump’s weakest groups.””

  • sth_txs

    Socialist and fascist? You mean like Bush II? The guy who invaded a country so his cronies could make money? Also said the Constitution ‘was a goddamned piece of paper’? Anyone who is or former member of the CFR should be immediately executed when the great revolution occurs.

  • Stephen

    The Tea Party…..constitutionally limited government, debt reduction, anti-socialist, freedom, apple pie, lemonade. All fine things in a 90% white America.

    But these are losing issues in a post-white America. Tea party people are good.folks, the kind I want as neighbors, but they were fighting yesterday’s battles, or last century’s battles. It’s time to start taking our ethnic and racial displacement seriously.

  • apostle53

    Trump’s spokesperson Katrina Pierson is also a founder of the Texas Tea Party.

    On the other hand, and the only thing we have to hope for, is that a businessman of Trump’s stature, has to say nice things about powerful people in government, especially in Trump’s line of business.

    Let’s face it, as a political philosophy, “conservatism” is no match for Cultural Marxism (CM). Proof of that is the political movements that advanced/occured over last 100 years. CM has marched through the institutions virtually unopposed. It’s long past time to ditch “conservatism” and replace it with race-based nationalism.

    Only Non-White Refugees Allowed in Germany

    January 19, 2016

    THE NEW OBSERVER reports:

    Genuine war refugees fleeing the conflict in the Ukraine have been denied asylum in Germany in 95 percent of cases (and will, from now on, all be refused that status)—while Angela Merkel’s government admits hundreds of thousands of “war refugees” from all over the nonwhite Middle East without question.

    The blatant double standard in favoring nonwhite “war refugees” over whites definitively reveals that the real purpose of Merkel’s policy is not to “help asylum seekers,” but to replace Europeans as quickly as possible.

    According to the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper, of the more than 7,000 Ukrainians who applied for asylum in 2014 and 2015, only 5 percent have been granted that status, and all the rest will be sent back to the Ukraine—even though there has been a full-scale war there since April 2014.

    The Frankfurter Rundschau said that many of the refugees come directly from the Donbass region war zone, where their houses and livelihoods have been destroyed—identical to the claims made by the “Syrians” currently pouring into Germany.

    To be fair, Trump did admit he initially thought that POS would be a cheerleader and Uniter for America but was greatly disappointed.
    By 2011, Trump had this to say about the Tea Party:

  • Constitutionalist4893

    Donald’s main Spokesperson is also a Tea Party leader, Katrina Pierson.
    And Tea Party Icon Sarah Palin just endorsed Trump.

    Also, Trump never went to the border with Beck to pass out Teddy bears and soccer balls to anchor babies and illegals.

  • Lockstein13

    Yep.
    FIRST PRIORITY: America First over Globalism
    SECOND PRIORITY: Conservatives over Leftists (Cultural Marxism)

  • Lockstein13

    Yep. Those numbers I believe also show that Gnarly FioRINO has about the same positive appeal as Ted Cruz.
    Umm…NO.

  • Admiral Ackbar!

    The fact of the matter is that if immigration is not lessened and the 11-40 million illegal invaders (no one knows how many, really) deported, America cannot be saved. Period. The United States cannot survive with a non-white majority – you simply get a larger version of Detroit.

    The GOP (including Cruz) has absolutely no intention of EVER deporting a single one and are completely on board with amnesty (including Cruz), intending to make latinos their new constituency to replace whites. Although Cruz has had to change his position on immigration (at least for the campaign), he still supports increasing America-replacing H1b’s for his corporate donors. The GOP has abandoned us. That’s what they have already decided. Period.

    Do I know Trump will do what he says? No. Do I know Trump isn’t just fooling me? No. But, I KNOW any GOP candidate will indeed betray historic American nation. There’s absolutely NO QUESTION that they will.

    There’s no downside to voting for Trump.

    Trump Logic: I am the only one who can speak his mind because I am so rich I don’t need donations to run my campaign.

    My Conclusion: Only the wealthy can afford enough freedom to be a leader, paving the way plutocracy.

    Trump Logic: I’m a great business man! Build a wall and bomb ISIS!

    My Conclusion: Wall will cost billions and produces nothing. Walls fail hard historically, ask the USSR and China. Dropping million dollar bombs on toyota pickups plus probable boots on ground to secure oil equals a dead sons and wasted money.

    Trump Supporter Logic: Vote for Trump because the others suck.

    My conclusion: Shut down the election, demand this shit change, be American.

  • Stephen

    ^^^ this is not a good example of taking our ethnic and racial displacement seriously.

  • Dolan Trump

    On the contrary, if you’re serious about preserving a white nation, then move to one and fight for it. I recommend an island nation. America has already made it’s decision with 50 years of suicidal voting.

  • Stephen

    ^^^this is not even a serious effort at reading comprehension. At no point have I said anything about a 100% white utopian nation.

  • Dolan Trump

    K, I haven’t said anything about a “100% white utopia” either.

  • Fiberal

    There is at least one important indication that Trump would be trustworthy going forward.

    He has a track record of honesty.

    He has to have established that. The most successful businessmen are essentially honest.

    I have seen honest businessmen and a lot of dishonest ones. But the dishonest ones don’t last. To have your handshake work as equity towards a deal, you need to have a substantial track record of success where both parties have benefited.

    You try and trick people and eventually, no one will do business with you.

    I am talking mainstream, regulated businesses here; not con games like that run by Bernie Madoff, organized crime or political influence peddling like hillary clinton – although her crimes and potential imprisonment illustrates my point.

    Those who want to put Trump through their purity tests, just do not seem to be able to fathom that he had to work with a lot of rats in New York city… including liberals, because they are almost as numerous as the city’s rat population.

    New York’s politicians are a slavishly liberal ruling class. As part of their rules, you simply don’t survive in the real estate business without their cooperation. Not to say he couldn’t have succeeded, but Trump would probably have not been as successful as he is today in the real estate business, were he wearing a “Nixon’s the One” lapel button to meetings.

    Successful people, even the crappiest, most disgusting liberal, will ultimately prefer to do business with honest people; especially when their own personal wealth and reputation, such as it may be, is invested.

    Whereas Cruz is a fine conservative in my view – he has had flip-flops as well, is probably not electable (although if Hillary gets a rock pile, that may change), may have citizenship issues, and in any event, will never be able to get the DC establishment on board with him. He will be facing a consolidated RINO-dimocrat coalition in Congress and the Senate.

    This is a better job for Trump to handle.

    People change opinions and today there is every reason to believe that Trump has been rehabilitated from his liberal ones.

  • JeffersonSpinningInGrave

    “[Cruz] will never be able to get the DC establishment on board with him. He
    will be facing a consolidated RINO-dimocrat coalition in Congress and
    the Senate.”

    I agree with that completely. Trump would get along much better with Congress, in large part because Trump will not do nearly enough to shrink government. Still, better than Hilary or Sanders, who will continue to grow it.

  • Deep North

    For the good, bad and ugly, Trump is his own man. He is financing his own campaign so he doesn’t need the donor class. Trump wasn’t my first choice either, but we’re in the 11th hour and we need someone with money and name exposure; and a don’t give a sh!t politically incorrect attitude as well. The GOP threw two lame RINOS at the Dems in 08′ and 12′. They didn’t give a dam about Ron Paul as well. Time to roll the dice. Pols pander to every group but white people; its as if we’re invisible. Trump shot to front when he told the truth about illegal immigration. In the long run, this country will be browned out due to non-white immigration.——————–

    “Nevertheless, despite all that, there have been many instances of well-connected, high-profile Jews expressing extreme anxiety about Trump. It seems to me that the common denominator here is nothing less than that they see Trump as undermining the elite consensus on immigration—even though his debate performance last night raised questions about how much—and, implicitly, on the moral imperative of euthanizing White America.

    Or to put it less delicately, they see Trump as potentially leading to a fascist counter-revolution that would spell the end of the project, very much promoted by the Jewish community, of creating a multi-cultural, non-White America completely cut off from its pre-1965 moorings.

    As often noted here, mainstream Jewish political attitudes and behavior in the US, from the far Left to the neoconservative right, has always been directed at lessening the demographic, political, and cultural power of White America. This is exemplified by the successful campaign to enact the 1965 immigration law and, even more significant, the continued support for high levels of immigration by the entire organized Jewish community.

    There are two main reasons for this: a concern that a homogeneous White America could ultimately rise up against Jews, as occurred in Hitler’s Germany (see here for discussion of a recent American example involving economist Bryan Caplan); and historic antipathy toward Christian Europeans, an outgroup seen exclusively in the context of the Jewish preoccupation with anti-Semitism.

    Obviously, these attitudes are not shared by all American Jews. But they do represent the thrust of Jewish power in the U.S. And we know this is not a principled stance, but rather is a form of ethnic strategizing in the diaspora, because the organized Jewish community also supports Israel as a Jewish state that restricts immigration of non-Jews and is actively involved in the dispossession of the Palestinians.”—-http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2015/10/why-so-much-jewish-fear-and-loathing-of-donald-trump/

  • MrRightWingDave

    Sad but true in these times.

  • S_O_T_A

    Sorry, but Dave is right – Trump cannot be trusted, and here’s an excellent reason why – Robert Reich, who served in Carter’s administration, endorsed Obama in 2008, and also recently endorsed Sanders, tells us why even as he tries to make Cruz look bad:

    “5 reasons Ted Cruz is even more dangerous than Donald Trump.

    1. He’s more fanatical. Trump is a bully and bigot but doesn’t hew to any sharp ideological line. Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex marriage, wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns, doesn’t believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, opposes international agreements, embraces a confrontational foreign policy, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of “every blessed word of Obamacare,” and takes a strict “originalist” view of the meaning of the Constitution.

    2. Cruz is a true believer. Trump has no firm principles except making money, getting attention, and gaining power. But Cruz really does detest the federal government, and has spent much of his life embracing radical right economic and political views. When Cruz said “we are facing what I consider to be the epic battle of our generation,” he wasn’t referring to jihadist terrorism but to Obamacare.

    3. He’s Smarter. Trump is no slouch but he hasn’t given any indication of a sharp mind. Cruz is razer-sharp: It’s not just his degrees from Princeton and Harvard Law, along with an impressive record at Harvard, or even his winning arguments before the Supreme Court. For his entire adult life he’s been a fierce debater with a intensely-logical debater’s mind.

    4. He’s more disciplined and strategic. Trump is all over the place, often winging it, saying whatever pops into his mind. Cruz hews to a clear script and a carefully crafted strategy. He plays the long game (as he’s shown in Iowa). Cruz’s legal career entailed a sustained use of the courts to achieve conservative ends, and he plots his moves carefully.

    5. Cruz is a loner who’s willing to destroy institutions. Trump has spent his career using the federal government and making friends with big shots. Not Cruz. Most of his Republican colleagues in the Senate detest him. And Cruz is eager to destroy: He has repeatedly crossed to the other side of the Capitol and led House Republicans toward fiscal cliffs. In the Fall of 2013, Cruz’s strident opposition to Obamacare – including a 21-hour talking marathon — led in a significant way to the shutdown of the federal government.

    Both men would be disasters for America, but Cruz would be the larger disaster.

    What do you think?”

    From Wikipedia: “Reich was the first Democratic candidate for a major political office to support same-sex marriage. He also pledged support for abortion rights and strongly condemned capital punishment.” “In 2004, he published Reason: Why Liberals Will Win the Battle for America, a book on how liberals can forcefully argue for their position in a country increasingly dominated by what he calls “radcons”, or radical conservatives.”

    When a guy like that sees Cruz like that, Trump supporters wanting someone to clean house in DC should sit up and take notice.

  • S_O_T_A

    Some context please. Cruz never wavered about sending those children back. Trump never spoke for 21 hours trying to save you from Obamacare. If you expect perfection, you don’t have ANY horse in this race.

  • S_O_T_A

    Thanks for that. I’d been looking for a reply on that topic. It seems when the best people have is guilt by association, they don’t have much.

  • Constitutionalist4893

    All fair points. Oddly enough I was attempting to providing context regarding the article, Trump, and the Tea Party.
    I don’t expect perfection, and you’re absolutely right that the perfectionists aren’t gonna find their candidate in the running.

  • Constitutionalist4893

    Cruz did flop on birthright citizenship though, only after Trump raised the issue of anchor babies.

    In 2011 Cruz claimed the 14th amendment provides birthright citizenship to anchor babies and that the Constitutional arguments against it weren’t very good.

    In 2015 Cruz says 14th amendment does not provide Birthright citizenship and he’s always thought so.

    That’s not ‘never waver[ing]’ to me. He’s not as consistent as he or Mark Levin like to sell him as.

    Heres the video:
    https://youtu.be/4zBW8vLnRDY

    As you say, there’s no perfect candidate.

    It’s amazing to me that most white-conservatives still blame Ted Kennedy for the Immigration Act of 1965 (Hart-Cellar Act), when it was 40 years of organized Jewish activism that foisted it on us. Ted Kennedy was just their dupe/front man.

    The next war won’t be nationalistic or racial, it will be an Inquisition that will make the previous one look like a teenage girl’s pillow fight. There are simply too many traitors among us to draw lines based upon citizenship or race.

    I hope Trump isn’t what I feel in my gut, but for now, he’s better than the other options. Regardless, the Pale Horse is saddled and ready to ride.
