SPECIAL NOTE – During the past week, we have invested a considerable amount of time, energy, effort and money, which many of you have donated to support this BLOG, to upgrade security and functionality, in order to protect Galganov.com and our visitors from HACKERS & MALFEASANTS.
Over the next short while, you might find some delays when posting your COMMENTS, because of precautions to keep the JERKS out. In the long run, I guess I have to accept this attack on this BLOG as something to be proud of, since our messages (yours and mine) are obviously getting through.
In my last editorial, Jon Walker of Huron Ohio, warned me not to become another BILL O’REILLY of FOX News in his COMMENT. I have to assume he was referring to the section at the end of the editorial, where I listed personal attributes, skills and accomplishments.
MR WALKER – The day I start to behave like Bill O’Reilly . . . is the day that I know that I’ve crossed the line, and will be of no use to the people who read and support Galganov.com.
I INCLUDED MY RESUME . . . because it is imperative that people know something about the writer (me), WITHOUT THE FILTERS AND HYPE, before accepting what he or she has to say – JUST BECAUSE.
I am constantly reading emails sent to me by men and women of good intent, which make outlandish claims, because the writer READ “IT” ON THE INTERNET.
I have recently read that Ted Cruz supports the Iran Deal. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have also read how Carly Fiorina is a big supporter of Islam . . . that too is a ridiculous and untrue claim.
There are far too many PHONIES in the media, who depend on winning your TRUST, whether on Radio, Television, Print or the Internet – a perfect example being “LYING” BRIAN WILLIAMS of NBC News.
AND BECAUSE OF THE LARGE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE who visit Galganov.com, who read this BLOG, and spread the word, it is important to me and to you, that I can establish why you should TRUST my words and intentions.
I HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS WHATSOEVER . . . that you should agree with what I write. AND TO THAT POINT – as long as people are not promoting LEFTIST BS, or are insulting, vulgar or confrontational, I welcome everyone’s COMMENTS.
BUT – As I’ve just written . . . IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, that people believe in my trustworthiness and integrity.
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT . . . that people should understand that I write from what I know.
The people are rallying to Trump because he is saying what people are thinking, and the other politicians won’t say.
BUT TALK IS CHEAP . . . and saying that you will build a giant wall as if that could be done in a weekend, deport some 11-MILLION people just like that, and then bring them back almost right away, and REVOKE the citizenship of people born in the USA, because their parents aren’t in America legally, as if their citizenship is irrelevant, and threaten to somehow walk away from contracts with other nations – IS CHEAP TALK.
WHEN TRUMP TALKS ABOUT RAISING TAXES . . . on a sliding scale to hit the rich, how’s that going to work? And how much should the sliding scale be? And how does that ROLLBACK the IRS, or rein-in the runaway bureaucracy?
WHY DOESN’T TRUMP SPEAK ABOUT A FLAT TAX . . . that guts the IRS, wipes out a huge portion of the bureaucracy, levels the playing field, and forces every American to have skin in the game?
TRUMP SAYS HE WILL SEIZE THE ARAB OIL FIELDS . . . to pay for American troops to take down ISIS – I’M ALL FOR THAT. But who’s going to take the oilfields? Who’s going to protect them? Who’s going to work them? And who’s going to process and ship the oil belonging to a region that is home to A HALF BILLION ANGRY MOSLEMS, all of whom, will be jockeying for control of these energy resources? And what will TRUMP do when the Arabs decide to SET FIRE to their own oil fields, just like Saddam Hussein did in the first Gulf War?
Trump is all about Trump. He always was, and will always be. TRUMP IS HIS OWN BRAND. And don’t take my word for it . . . JUST LISTEN TO HIM SPEAK. It’s always about what he can do.
AND JUST LIKE OBAMA . . . Trump speaks with PLATITUDES, saying things that sound GREAT, but have very little substance.
INSTEAD OF SAYING YES WE CAN . . . Trump is saying MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. And who can argue with that, since everyone with a Conservative brain wants to see America become great again? . . . BUT THAT WON’T HAPPEN WITH WORDS ALONE.
World history is replete with leaders who were put in place by people who were DESPERATE FOR CHANGE, who reached out to leaders who say the things everyone wants to hear. In some respects, it becomes akin to a MOB MENTALITY, just as we saw with the METEORIC RISE OF OBAMA . . . and how is that working out for America and the world?
NARCISSISTS use their own name a great deal. It’s always about ME, MYSELF, and I . . . as in the things that rattle off Obama’s tongue every time he opens his mouth.
And after due consideration, I think Trump would win in a competition between himself and Obama, for who’s the biggest NARCISSIST, since every time he speaks, he says things like – no one can create JOBS like Trump. No one can build a WALL like Trump. No one knows how to NEGOTIATE like Trump, the Mexicans LOVE Trump – etc . . . etc . . . etc.
If you think Trump is so RIGHT for America, you should take his advice and measure who you want to be President of the USA and leader of the FREE World the same way Trump chooses his Apprentice.
Trump didn’t hire the man or woman whose best attribute was PIZZAZZ – he or she was FIRED.
Trump never hired the man or woman who talked the BEST TALK without substance – he or she was FIRED.
Trump never hired the man or woman who had the BIG DREAM WITHOUT A PLAN – he or she was FIRED.
Trump never hired the man or woman who INSULTED the other “candidates” as a way of getting ahead – he or she was FIRED.
INEVITABLY . . . Trump hired the person who could get the job done, and proved himself or herself as being competent BEFORE THAT PERSON WON THE JOB.
In ADDITION to Trump’s NARCISSISM . . . here are three other reasons why I would not support him in his bid to win the Republican Nomination.
1 – Trump keeps on saying how much he LOVES women, yet he treated and insulted Megyn Kelly of FOX News as if she were garbage. I would worry that he might be a misogynist, since I’ve known far too many men who claimed their love for women, who were in essence closet abusers.
I am not suggesting that Trump is either a misogynist or an abuser. But what I am saying, is that the way he treated Kelly and other women during interviews, were dismissive, rude and uncalled for. And begs more than a few questions.
2 – Trump said that he doesn’t need anyone’s money to run, because he’s RICH, and does not want to owe anything to anyone. He added to that . . . that anyone who accepts money from BIG donors owes the LOBBYISTS.
Then he said that he would accept HUGE donations as long as there were no strings attached. What kind of nonsense is that?
Then after being criticized for reversing himself, in his Iowa August 25, 2015 Town Hall Meeting, he said that he won’t accept BIG donations, and turned down a friend who wanted to give him $5-Million.
If this isn’t all over the board . . . what is? And don’t write to me saying this wasn’t true, because I heard it directly out of Trump’s mouth. This man is all over the board.
3 – AND HERE’S THE BIG ONE . . . at this point, whether Trump agrees to PLEDGE to the Republican Party that he won’t run as an INDEPENDENT if he doesn’t get the nomination MAKES NO DIFFERENCE, because to me, the damage is already done.
This election isn’t all about Trump. But to him, the way he is speaking, and what he is saying, and how he is saying it . . . IT IS ALL ABOUT TRUMP.
Trump’s book – THE ART OF THE DEAL, which Trump says; that to him, it is the most important book since the Bible (Is that in itself narcissistic enough?), is supposedly all about winning at business. But, in Trump’s world, it seems to me, and the things he is saying, is that it is ONLY ABOUT WINNING.
I contend, that WINNING FOR TRUMP . . . far exceeds WINNING FOR AMERICA.
1 – Trump has made campaigning a real contest; opposed to the CRAP we’ve been fed for generations.
2 – He has exposed how INCOMPETENT and INCAPABLE most of the candidates are, who have no idea how to relate to the people without their ARMY of PR People, Spin Doctors, Pollsters, Speech Writers and Teleprompters.
3 – He has also inspired the people to want a CANDIDATE who really wants to FIGHT, as if the future of the United States and the Free World depend upon it, which it does.
We are more than a year away from the next Presidential election. And we are 11-MONTHS (Mid July-2016) before the National Republican Convention in Cleveland Ohio. So there’s a great deal of time for everyone to make a decision based on fact, rather than on unfounded passion that could either MAKE OR BREAK AMERICA.
America has never been this blessed to have so many HIGH QUALITY men and one woman running for the LEADERSHIP of the Republican Party. People like Ted Cruz, the UN-POLITICIAN, Carly Fiorina, who speaks with incredible clarity, Ben Carson, who under the skin is made of steel and determination, Scott Walker who has already stood up to America’s ENEMIES FROM WITHIN and won, plus a host of others.
The history books are replete with men and some women who seized POWER because of an angry MOB. And I don’t have to tell you who they are.
Last night, during his latest TOWN HALL SPEECH, Trump turned to Ann Coulter and said, and I paraphrase, since he has said the same thing several times in different ways: WHY DO WE NEED TO WAIT FOR AN ELECTION. THE PEOPLE LOVE ME. LET’S VOTE NOW.
Enjoy the show . . . but understand this – THIS IS NOT REALITY TV!
