Weekly Forum: What Was Your Reaction To Trump’s Acceptance Speech?

Every week on Monday, the Council, members of the Watcher’s Council Community and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: What Was Your Reaction To Trump’s Acceptance Speech?

 Stately McDaniel Manor : Donald Trump’s Convention acceptance speech embodied everything I like about him, and everything I fear could easily derail his campaign and allow Hillary Clinton, the most hateful, angry and corrupt harridan imaginable, to seize the White House at a time when the Supreme Court, and the future of Western Civilization are up for grabs.

I suspect Trump’s popularity comes from his willingness to say, loudly and even a little crudely and clumsily, what so many Americans think and feel. There is no politically correct filter there. He is a self-made man, a genuine American success story, and he does get things done when others can’t. His deal-making skills may be of great value, as might his stubbornness and self-assurance.

But what scares me more than a little are the same things, and more. His speech was ridiculously long. People inexperienced in public speaking often try to throw everything into every speech as though it’s the only chance they’ll ever get. Some just love the sound of their own voice, even though they, like Trump, tend to endlessly repeat themselves, and fill their speeches with verbal fillers, particularly when they speak without notes or a teleprompter.

Trump also tends not to focus on the issues of the moment, and flies off on tangents, particularly when he thinks someone has personally slighted or attacked him just as he did today when he went after Ted Cruz. He earlier tweeted that Cruz’s failure to endorse him was no big deal. He should have left it there and looked magnanimous, but nooooo! He just has to go after people personally, and when he does, he runs his mouth and might say anything. If he can’t drop that habit, he won’t become president. And if he does it as president, that’s all he’ll be doing. George W. Bush had that part of presidential temperament right. He knew everyone and their dog would go after him, and he just let them have at it. To do otherwise, elevates ankle biters to the level of President of the United States.

Trump has to learn, and very soon, to stay on message. He can do it without becoming wooden and inflexible. Learning to prioritize, to focus on what is most important, is an essential adult skill that Trump has seemingly yet to master. Being outrageous is cute and endearing for a time, but eventually, presidents have to identify big problems, explain how they are going to solve them, and do it.

We’ve had eight years of Barack Obama’s personal references. Today after the attack in Munich, I heard him on radio saying he knew nothing about what happened, but proceeded to rattle on anyway mouthing meaningless platitudes that did nothing to suppress terrorism or further international relations. Sometimes presidents accomplish most by saying least. A trumpian version of that kind of meaningless twaddle will get old very fast. We really don’t need to hear from the president every day, about everything that happens, and when we do, we quit listening. He becomes the boy that cried wolf, and isn’t heard or believed when it really matters.

It’s time for Donald Trump and his advisors to sit down and lay out a coherent plan for the rest of the campaign. That plan has to include focus on specific issues, particularly those on which Hillary is uniquely vulnerable–there are more than enough of those–Trump’s solutions and how he’ll implement them, and little or nothing else.

One other important issue: someone needs to whack Trump upside the head and convince him the President can’t “make” anything happen alone. Donald Trump, businessman, can do that; Presidents can’t. They can set agendas, cajole, guide, maneuver, use the moral bully pulpit for good and to support the Constitution. He has to learn how to play the political game for the benefit of America.

“I’ll make America great again, “ “I’m the only one that can do it,” is meaningless without answers about how that’s going to happen, and after the conventions, people are going to demand those answers. If Trump can’t provide them, if he can’t incorporate presidential demeanor without abandoning the personal qualities that have thus far inspired so many, enough people are going to go with the devil they know to elect Hillary.

Always, it’s important to remember if it’s not close, Democrats can’t win through vote fraud. We’re going to see unprecedented vote fraud in this election. Trump and the Republican National Committee need to be very concerned, and very focused, on that issue too.

The Razor : He scares the living daylights out of the Left, quite a few centrists and even a smattering of conservatives. Given the Left’s demonization of every Republican candidate since Nixon as a demagogue along the lines of, well, Nixon – it’s refreshing to actually have a candidate that lives up to their hateful rhetoric.

One thing’s for sure: if he becomes president the next 4 years are going to be interesting. Very interesting.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason : Donald Trump’s acceptance speech appealed to the concerns of many if not most Americans. He promised to be the law and order president and would keep us safe, build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants, and return jobs to our country.

He recited a litany of the failures of the Obama administration and the Clinton State Department, which have made us less safe at home and is leaving us a less safe world. Under the current administration we have higher rates of unemployment in minority populations, poverty, people relying on food stamps, and crime in the inner cities.

In several attacks on his Democrat opponent, he said Hillary’s greatest accomplishment might be getting away with the many crimes she committed during her term as Secretary of State.

Trump explained that “nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.” He promised the American people that “I am your voice.” While it would have been better to say “I hear your voices” hopefully that is merely a quibble over semantics. Time will tell.

When he becomes president Trump promised we will defeat the barbarians of ISIS and we will defeat them fast. It would have been preferable to have given some specific details of his plans to defeat this radical Islamic terrorist group whose barbarism is growing and reaching across the globe.

Trump’s speech was well delivered and well received. The main stream media outlets all focused on how dark it was but unless you have not been paying attention to national and world events we truly do find ourselves in a dark place.

I look forward in the coming months to hear more substantive comments on exactly what his plans entail and how Trump will Make America Great Again.

I reserve my concerns that Trump is just another big government politician. He appears to believe he alone can do all the things he promises. Hopefully that is just ego, for if that were the case we no longer live under the laws of our constitutional republic; a Constitution which provides a balance of powers to keep despots in check.

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD : The speech hit mostly high notes: the country is on the wrong track.

Crime and violence are serious concerns. Trump promised to be a “law and order” president, specifics to come. Many believe race relations have deteriorated since 44 took office. Cops are under attack. Poor kids are trapped in failing public schools and Democrats won’t let them escape. Trump promises school choice.

Terrorism is on the rise at home and overseas. Instead of focusing on battle readiness, our depleted military focuses on goofy fakebelieve stuff like Climate change or worse, the inclusion of transgender and women soldiers. Veterans are not being adequately cared for.

Bad trade deals are notorious for helping certain elements at the expense of the country and Democrat policies are the reason for the sorry shape the nation is in.

JoshuaPundit : Honestly, I’d give the speech a B++ if there is such a thing. By that I mean it was a really good speech with some flaws.

I’ve always loved hearing Donald Trump speak. His rallies didn’t involve scripted, jowl shaking oratory but a sort of down to earth conversation between him and say, 30,000 people. He was so relaxed, so comfortable in his own skin it was almost eerie. Unlike most pols, he wasn’t talking at them, but with them. He’d come up to the podium, take that sheet of folded paper out of his pocket and have at it. He’d get the talking points out at each spot and say what needed saying, but he’d mix them in with anecdotes about the campaign, or whatever else was on his mind, and there were always a few jokes at his own expense. And then there was the impromptu audience responses, like singing along to your favorite singer’s hit songs. Going to his rallies was fun!

Trump’s acceptance speech was different. The content was just fine, and it mirrored what a lot of Americans are concerned about right now, with outreach to a lot of groups who Trump is going to get more votes from than most people think. I mean, if you were LGBT and in your right mind, would you vote for Hillary who wants to bring boatloads more unvetted Muslim ‘refugees’ into America and take away your guns too? Ditto if you’re a young woman unless you enjoy the thought of being raped.

And his attack on Hillary Clinton was bone-crushing, which is why a lot of the Democrat media ignored it.According to pollster  Frank Luntz’s Democrat and Republican focus groups, that part of Trump’s speech was off the charts as far as approval went.

The problem was that it was about 20-25 minutes too long, and it needed to touch the bases in a more succinct, sound bitey way. It reminded me of some rock concerts where things start out energetic, hit a lull in the middle with the drum solo and then pep up for a high energy finish.

And that relaxed, natural Trump wasn’t visible enough, although it was there. One of my favorite bits was when Trump was talking about the rigged system we have and how he was going to fix it and then looked at the audience, grinned, spread his hands out and said ” And who would know better than me?”

It broke the audience up, and it broke me up watching the stream.

I also was a little uneasy about his refrain that he was going to fix this and that and ‘we’re gonna do it fast.’ Government doesn’t work that way, and especially not for this outsider taking on entrenched interests in both parties. Things need to be parsed, refined and done by consensus. That, by the way is why I’ve never been bothered by Trump’s not getting into too many details but focusing on goals. That’s how business gets done. The goals come first and the mechanisms come later after the pros and cons have been weighed and agreed on.

And while Ivanka was absolutely wonderful, I couldn’t help wondering if a real fire breather like the Reverend Mark Burns as an opener might not have been better. The Rev reminds me of a clerical Howlin’ Wolf, and that’s some heavy duty praise. It would have gotten that crowd fired up like nobody’s business and perhaps then The  Donald would have felt able to be a bit less strident in places.

All in all though, a really good job. And as we’ve seen in the past, it will likely get better because if nothing else, we’ve seen that Trump has an astonishing ability to recover, step back and learn from his mistakes.

Well, there you have it.

Hilarious! Stephanopolous Lets Ellison Claim George Wallace Ran As Republican!

Even they don’t know their history. Sometimes it’s just so easy.

Rockin' On The Right Side

Congressman Keith Ellison Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN)

You can’t write better comedy than this.  George Stephanopolous and ABC News may have just put the Comedy Channel out of business.

On ABC Sunday Morning This Week, anchor George Stephanopolous – former Clinton employee, big contributor to the Clinton Foundation, and chief Clinton apologist – sat by and did not even blink when his panelist, Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison, laid this giant, stinking egg:

“Donald Trump is the worst Republican candidate since George Wallace.”

Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK), sitting next to Ellison on the panel, could barely keep from laughing out loud.

“I have to correct my friend, Congressman Ellison,” Cole told Stephanopolous.  “George Wallace was a lifelong DEMOCRAT.  He ran on the Democrat ticket, and we can’t let history be rewritten.”

The embarrassment on Ellison’s face was absolutely priceless.  As a Democrat, and an African-American, Ellison has been brainwashed to believe that all Republicans are racists, and all racists are Republicans. …

Mississippi’s Charter School Funding Challenged in Court

We have to stop the theft of our public monies being given to private entities i.e. unaccountable charter schools.

deutsch29

On July 11, 2016, the Southern Poverty Law Center backed a lawsuit by several parents (also on behalf of their children) against Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, the Mississippi Department of Education, and the Jackson Public School District; the suit challenges the constitutionality of using ad valorem tax money and per-pupil funding to fiscally support charter schools in Mississippi (as per the Charter Schools Act of 2013, or CSA).

The gist of the suit involves giving public money to schools that are not overseen by the state and district. An excerpt from the suit:

Section 206 of the Mississippi Constitution provides that a school district’s ad valorem taxes may only be used for the district to maintain its own schools. Under the CSA, public school districts must share ad valorem revenue with charter schools that they do not control or supervise. Therefore, the local funding stream of the CSA is unconstitutional.

Weekly Forum: What’s Your Reaction To The Nationwide Attacks On Police?

Every week on Monday, the Council, members of the Watcher’s Council Community and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question:What’s Your Reaction To The Nationwide Attacks On Police?

 Don Surber : Pray. Blame the shooter, not the BLM or the president.

 The Razor : Why can’t we be pro-black and pro-cop? I’m getting sick of this black and white world we are living in.

My last few interactions with the police haven’t been all that great. I’ve been treated rudely and without respect. If they’re treating a 50 year old middle class white guy that way, I can just imagine how they treat minorities. I’ve seen the videos, and while some are more damning then others, the last few have shown the root of the problem. It’s not racism – contrary to what BLM believes – it’s poor police training. The shooter in the Castile video was scared witless, shaking and cursing and clearly out of his depth. We have a nation that trains cops to go to war and protect themselves at all cost – even if that means shooting an unarmed man in a car with a 4 year old child and her mother inside of it – instead of serving their communities.

Think about that: shooting a 40 caliber handgun into a car with a woman and 4 year old child in it. There is just so much wrong with what that cop did I don’t know where to begin. Cops have been taught how to use their guns but not how to use their brains. They have been trained to gain control of a situation and everyone in it, and then are shocked when this tactic backfires, escalating a situation that inevitably ends with an unarmed dead man.

We cannot be surprised that these video executions aren’t going to inspire some to take the law into their own hands and fight back. But just as the NRA can’t be blamed for every unarmed man shot by a cop, the BLM cannot be blamed for what went down Thursday night in Dallas. We have been afflicted with poor leadership for a generation. Great men and women could have built upon the Civil Rights movement to make MLK’s dream a reality. Instead they have divided us, fragmenting us like some kind of social grenade.

We need to find a middle path between the extremes of anarchy and a police state. Cops won’t feel that they are under siege when the people within the communities they serve believe they are being treated fairly. Perhaps cops can learn from police departments that have been successful with deescalation training or neighborhood policing. Ending the War on Drugs by legalizing possession of narcotics would help too. But cops won’t be safe until the people they serve feel safe.

If we can’t find this middle path, then America is dead.

JoshuaPundit : This isn’t about the police, or ra-aaa-acism. It’s about power, politics and control.

President Barack Hussein Obama has a long history of using the presidency as a platform to attack the police. From the ‘stupid’ police who arrested Professor Skip Gates when he was arrested and refused to show his ID after a neighbor reported someone breaking into the professor’s home to his shoot from the lip comments about his ‘son’ Trayvon Martin, to he and his friend Al Sharpton essentially helping to incite a riot in Ferguson Missouri, to the Freddie Gray travesty. You’ll also remember that the day before the nation-wide attacks on police, the president weighed in harshly on incidents involving confrontations between blacks and police in Louisiana and Minnesota where the full facts aren’t known yet, saying police must ‘root out racism.’

This is exactly the same type of gasoline our president always throws on this kind of thing and it almost always has the same result,followed by a carefully phrased condemnation of the violence it help create.

So, why would a sitting president do that?

Recall two things this president said in the early days of his first term. The first thing he said was tha the wanted to be a ‘transformational president.’

The second? That he wanted a ‘civilian security force, just as well armed, just as well funded, and just as well trained as our military.’

Remember that one?

Just as Obama has done his best to transform our military, he now intends to change the police, making ‘social justice’ and ‘diversity’ a paramount part of their mission rather than law enforcement and crime fighting, dictating the policies from DC and federalizing the large and mid-sized urban departments.

Both the president and Mrs. Clinton pointedly mentioned federalizing the police in their statements following last Friday’s carnage…after blaming white ra-aa-acism, of course, which as Mrs. Clinton said, ‘must change.’

That’s the power aspect, and the political aspect is equally obvious. Has anyone but me noticed how often these incidents happen in election years?

Magnifying what amounts to rare incidents like these and making a convenient enemy out of the police using the Soros funded Black Lives Matter movement is a convenient platform for maximizing fundraising and black turnout for the Democrats. Without that, they simply don’t win elections. Given how Obama’s policies have severely hurt the black working class, something has to be created to keep them on the Democrat plantation.

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnDOne of the pillars of any successful society – and let’s face it – the American society is the most awesome of all – is Rule of Law.

Law enforcement is key obviously and works hand in hand with our criminal justice system.

Breaking down this pillar will result in tons of uncool chiz initiating a collapse of America as we know it.

The last week has seen perhaps the biggest skirmish in the War on Cops.

The current and the former Attorney Generals as well as 44 himself have constantly misdirected and encouraged lawless elements every since the Professor Skip Gates affair – when 44 LOL’d that “the Police acted stupidly. They followed through in the immediate aftermath of Ferguson.

44 should have briefly reiterated the grounds for not indicting the officer at Ferguson and applauded the decision as the product of a scrupulously thorough and fair process. He should have praised the jurors for their service and courage in following the evidence where it led them. And he should have concluded by noting that there is no fairer criminal-justice system in the world than the one we have in the United States.1

Instead, 44 reprimanded local police officers in advance for an expected overreaction to the protests: “I also appeal to the law-enforcement officials in Ferguson and the region to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occur. . . . They need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence . . . from the vast majority who just want their voices heard around legitimate issues in terms of how communities and law enforcement interact.”

Such skepticism about the ability of the police to maintain the peace appropriately was unwarranted at the time and even more so in retrospect; the forces of law and order didn’t fire a single shot. Nor did they inflict injury, despite having been fired at themselves.

The growth of proactive policing in the 1990s, along with lengthened sentences for violent crime, saved thousands of minority lives. In fact, no government agency is more dedicated to the proposition that “black lives matter” than today’s data-driven, accountable police department. 

 The Glittering Eye : I think there’s a lot of exaggerated fear on all sides.

It is not true that police are being murdered in numbers. Here in Chicago there hasn’t been a police officer killed in the line of duty in five years. Police killings, e.g. Laquan McDonald, simply can’t be attributed to rational fear on the part of police.

It’s also not true that blacks are being murdered in numbers by police. Blacks are killed by police in numbers proportionate to the number their arrests for violent crimes at about the same rate as whites. Black anger of the sort that apparently motivated the murderer in Dallas last Thursday simply can’t be thought of as a righteous response to black men being hunted by the police.

The United States is a country of 320 million people and there are more than a million law enforcement officers. With such a large population and tens or hundreds of thousands of encounters between the police and black menu daily, occasional tragic incidents are inevitable. Comparing the United States with, say, Denmark is facetious. Denmark is the size of a good-sized U. S. county. There are thousands of U. S. counties where no police officers or civilians have been murdered in decades.

Why the fear? I think there are several reasons. The power of social media and every phone a video camera mean that these inevitable incidents are made available to a worldwide audience in minutes. The news media pick up these viral accounts and perseverate on them, giving the impression that they’re much more frequent and much more severe than they actually are.

Another contributing factor is political leadership that feels the need to provide a misguided balance in their statements about these unfortunate incidents. IMO if President Obama merely said nothing on the grounds that these incidents are local matters and he shouldn’t insinuate himself into them or supported the police unconditionally we’d all be better off.

Laura Rambeau Lee, Right Reason : We must understand the nationwide attack on police in this country is being orchestrated by the radical left in an effort to create chaos, destruction, division, and death. This past week we saw the shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 5th and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota on July 6th. The Black Lives Matter movement organized protests in several cities following these shootings. As we have seen they are very good at quickly mobilizing protestors. They do not care that the facts surrounding these shootings have yet to be determined. Their rush to judgment, along with our President, condemns the police and portrays the men who were killed as not guilty of anything except being black.

American blacks need to realize they are being used by the most radical forces at work in this country to divide us in order to destroy us. The police are not our enemy. Of course there are some bad actors and they will be brought to justice. We must respect our legal system to determine guilt or innocence in these cases. The media spin on the left and the right will not reveal all the facts in their rush to judgment. As the song says “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.” Time after time we have a black man killed by police, and time after time we have protestors in the streets, always at night it seems, protesting the actions of the police. Of course the instigators use these protests to riot, loot, burn and destroy everything they can until the next time. The pattern repeats because the pattern works. The Obama administration would jump at the opportunity to nationalize our police force and to strip law abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right to possess firearms. The left would not hesitate to create circumstances to hasten such a move if possible.

Does anyone else find it odd that the Dallas shooter was able to commit his terrorist acts, killing five policemen and wounding many others, seemingly spontaneously with a hastily assembled Black Lives Matter protest in a city with very little racial unrest and where the diversity of the police force reflects to a good measure the diversity of its citizens?

It is also interesting how FBI Director James Comey’s announcement on July 5th of Hillary Clinton’s many felonious actions and his determination they did not rise to the level of indictable offenses but merely “extremely careless” was the media story for less than a twenty-four hour news cycle. Once these shootings occurred there was no more coverage of the Clinton scandal. The American people are being manipulated by the media.

Stately McDaniel Manor :Statistically, policing is not among the most dangerous professions, however, every day, back in the 1400s, when I put on the blue suit, I understood just how vulnerable I was. If someone really wanted to ambush me, there was little I could do to avoid it. I practiced good tactics, varied my routine, and was always extra alert at choke points and potential ambush sites, but the truth is, if someone wants to kill you, and is willing to die in the process, it’s likely they’ll succeed.

I also knew that if the job required it, I would, without hesitation, put my body between people I didn’t know, had never met, to protect them from the bullets of killers. I would, of course, do my best to make them pay with their lives, but being willing to sacrifice myself was a matter of duty, of honor.

And I also had no doubt that if I had to shoot, to kill another human being, I would do it without hesitation. Any police officer that hasn’t worked that one out is a danger to him self and the public. Hesitation can kill.

I am glad–very glad–that I am no longer a police officer. Today’s officers not only have a very large and racist target on their backs, they can no longer be reasonably certain that if they have to shoot to save their life, or the lives of others, they can expect a competent investigation under the rule of law, particularly if they have to shoot a member of a favored victim group. At the moment, that group is young black males, who, coincidentally, commit serious, violent crimes in numbers far out of proportion to their numbers in the population (around 5%). In addition, they can no longer expect that prosecutors will analyze their shoots using the same legal standards that apply to those victim groups, namely probable cause, and the ability to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt.

It’s a lie, you know–the idea that the police are engaging in some racist conspiracy to kill black men. Police officers—justifiably–kill far more white people than black, and police officers are less likely to be racist than the general population. Police agencies spend a great deal of time and money in recruiting, hiring and continuing supervision to screen for that sort of deviance, and very, very few Americans are actual racists. The Civil Rights Movement achieved its goals, and rightfully so. Actual racists are treated as social pariahs. All Americans of good will are proud of that, and glad for it. That’s in large part why Barack Obama was elected President, to make that point, to demonstrate the ultimate vindication of the Civil Rights Movement. Look how he has repaid us.

Every officer knows, every day, the extent of their vulnerability, which is bad enough without the President of the United States and other racist twits lying about the police and stirring up irrational hatred toward them. Yet every day, they still go out there on the streets and pray their number isn’t up.

So do I.

  Well, there you have it.
