Media Very Much Wants To Know If Donald Trump Can Be Stopped

I’ll repeat yet again that Trump is not my candidate, and my opposition to Trump has increased over the last month. I’m certainly not at a point where there’s no way I couldn’t vote for him. Many elections are a choice between a bad choice and a really, really bad choice. I’d rather have a guy who calls himself a Republican than Sanders or Hillary. You’d at least get some of what you want, as opposed to getting lots of what you do not want, and, if a President Trump started going Left, well, Republicans could primary him at the end of his first term. All that said, it’s interesting how many articles have been published wondering if Trump can be stopped, most of which are thinly veiled opinion pieces. Here’s the Washington Post

Can Donald Trump be stopped?

Donald Trump has taken firm control of the race for the Republican presidential nomination with his third straight victory, in Nevada. To deny him that role, strategists say, his leading rivals must quickly change the trajectory of the race and then dig in for what could be a long battle that could go all the way to the GOP convention in Cleveland.

It’s all about other Republicans stopping Trump. Have you seen articles like that regarding Clinton or Sanders? But, it gets better, once we look at the Washington Post Editorial Board

GOP leaders, you must do everything in your power to stop Trump

THE UNTHINKABLE is starting to look like the inevitable: Absent an extraordinary effort from people who understand the menace he represents, Donald Trump is likely to be the presidential nominee of the Republican Party. At this stage, even an extraordinary effort might fall short. But history will not look kindly on GOP leaders who fail to do everything in their power to prevent a bullying demagogue from becoming their standard-bearer.

Huh. So, we have the uber-leftists WPEB, who haven’t yet met a Republican that they would even consider endorsing for President, telling the Republican Party, which they continuously bash, that they have to stop Trump. Again, Trump’s not my guy, but, I will abide by the process. The WPEB wants to thwart the process.

Nor are they alone. The Boston Globe Editorial Board also got involved in the Stop Trump Bus

The editorial asks registered voters who are unenrolled with either major party to take a Republican ballot and vote for Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Trump opponent the Globe has previously endorsed, in an effort to counter the large margin of victory predicted for Trump in Massachusetts.

Not too be outdone by anyone, Danielle Allen wrote an opinion piece saying that stopping Trump is akin to stopping Hitler back in the 1930’s. Then we have Walter Shapiro, a confirmed Leftist who has worked for Democrats as far back as Jimmy Carter, writing that Republican Leaders Must Stop Trump

Dear President George W. Bush, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Gov. Mitt Romney:

I am writing you in your role as the de facto leaders of your party. Gentleman, the Republic is in peril. Donald Trump poses a mortal danger not just to the Republican Party, but also to the American democratic experiment itself.

Huh. So, a danger to the American democratic experiment itself! I do find it interesting that a leftist considers our Democracy system an experiment, after it has been in place for over 200 years.

We could continue on and on with these types of opinion pieces and editorials from Lefties, who would probably be writing the same thing if Cruz or Rubio, or even John Kasich, were the front runner. I’m willing to listen to someone like Charles C.W. Cook, who headlines his article It’s Time for an Anti-Trump Manhattan Project. At least he’s a Conservative interested in seeing Conservative policies succeed. But, here’s one that ultimately takes the cake, written by Haroon Moghul at The Islamic Monthly

There’s Only One Way To Stop Trump, and You Won’t Like It

The piece goes on to state that none of the others running can stop Trump, who’s a total Islamophobe, a bully, and makes Haroon “afraid for my personal security as an American of color who chooses to be Muslim.” He has little trust that either Sanders or Clinton can defeat Trump. So, what to do?

Option one is for President Barack Obama to suspend the Constitution and stay on as president for life, or at least until Trump becomes too old and decrepit to take office. What’s a hobbled Supreme Court going to do? Trump himself is fond of arguing that there is no consensus on what certain amendments mean, perhaps there is really just no consensus on what the whole Constitution means. But I don’t think this is exciting enough. If we’re going to sabotage our democratic experiment to save it, we have to make sure Republicans are on board, and America generally. We need to think big. I want fighter jet flyovers, Beyoncé performing something, Kanye’s tweeted decline, a giant American flag the size of Canada and tens of thousands of fans — I mean citizens — screaming “USA!” I want power, glory, and, well …

I want empire.

Quite frankly, it’s hard to determine whether this is satire or real.

More: Don Surber also notes the editorial from the Washington Post EB, calling it bizarre and desperate.

    He will be stopped in the general election if he gets that far.

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/donald-trump-said-a-lot-of-gross-things-about-women-on-howar#.qe733GzAe7

    He reportedly said of his ex-wife Marla Maples, “Nice tits, no brains,”

    Before she was the next ex-Mrs. Trump, Maples was his girlfriend, an inconvenient truth for The Donald’s then wife, Ivana.

    Of Princess Diana: in 1997, Trump told Stern he thinks he could have slept with her, saying she had “supermodel beauty.” In a different interview in 2000, Trump said he would have slept with her “without hesitation” and that “she had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin.” He added, “She was crazy, but these are minor details.”

    Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten with Lady Di?” Stern asked. “You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.”

    “I think I could have,” Trump said.

    In 2004, Trump told Stern he trusted his then-girlfriend (and current wife) Melania so much that he doesn’t pull out during sex.

    And, in September 2004, Trump admitted he wasn’t a huge fan of oral sex

    “Would you go out with Marcia Cross (actress, Desperate Housewives) or would you turn gay, Howard?” said Trump, asking who he would date.

    “A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10,” said Trump of(actress Nicolete)Sheridan.

    In another exchange, Stern asked Trump if he’d ever slept with a black woman. Trump awkwardly replied, “Yes.”

    Yet, The Donald was never married to a Black woman. That means Donald has had sex outside of marriage, making him a slut!

    Trump talked about how he wanted to have more kids with newlywed wife Melania: “‘Cause I like kids,” said Trump. “I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds and she’ll take care of the kids. It’s not like I’m gonna be walking the kids down Central Park.”

    In 2008, Trump said it would be difficult for him to get an erection for Madonna.

    Republicans have a rich history of nominating outside-the-mainstream candidates, Barry Goldwater, Dick Nixon, Spiro T. Agnew, Ronald Reagan, Dubya, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan, now The Donald. Two of the greatest Presidents in history, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt were Republicans, but would hardly gain purchase in the fascist ideology of the New Republican Party (NRP).

    The NRP (pronounced “nerp”) is most easily understood by understanding the tenets of the John Birch Society (the Koch Brothers’ dad was a founding member). Virulent anti-socialism, anti-redistribution, anti-government, anti-immigrant, anti-communist, anti-United Nations, anti-Civil Rights – the language of the Tea Party reflects the resurgence of the John Birch Society.

    Of course the MSM is afraid of Trump, but not because of what he may do to the country, but what he might do to the hard left, just by winning.
    I think the DNC will do to the country what they did in NJ with Lautenberg/Torricelli in 2002, Hillary will win the nomination but due to illness will be replaced with an electable candidate.

    The JBS was and is not anti civil rights.

    gbear typed:

    The JBS was and is not anti civil rights.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Birch_Society

    from your citation:

    The society opposed the 1960s civil rights movement and claimed the movement had Communists in important positions. In the latter half of 1965, the JBS produced a flyer titled “What’s Wrong With Civil Rights?”, which was used as a newspaper advertisement. In the piece, one of the answers was: “For the civil rights movement in the United States, with all of its growing agitation and riots and bitterness, and insidious steps towards the appearance of a civil war, has not been infiltrated by the Communists, as you now frequently hear. It has been deliberately and almost wholly created by the Communists patiently building up to this present stage for more than forty years.” The society opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, claiming it violated the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and overstepped individual states’ rights to enact laws regarding civil rights.

    Perhaps they only opposed civil rights for Black people.

    Of your list, five of the folks were never nominated, so perhaps you may want to retract that ridiculous statement.

    Secondly, you really think that an avowed socialist and a criminal (Bernie and Hillary) are “mainstream?”

  7. Jeffery says:

    The Semantics Guy strikes again!

    No retraction.

    Senator Sanders is outside the mainstream, Secretary Clinton is so mainstream it’s boring. Of what crime was she convicted? Perhaps you may want to retract that ridiculous statement or you will be branded a LIAR.

  8. gitarcarver says:

    No retraction.

    I am not surprised.

  9. gitarcarver says:

    Of what crime was she convicted?

    Oh and by the way, Jeffery…..

    The definition of “criminal” is “one who has committed a crime,” not “one who has been convicted of a crime” as you would like people to believe.

    Hillary broke the law with her private email server. Of that there is no doubt unless you want to say that Hillary’s own admission she had the server is her lying. (Or maybe you just want to ignore facts and live in a fantasy world.)

    Doesn’t matter to me.

    Hillary committed a crime and is, by definition, a criminal.

    Have a nice night.
