Stupid PC Conservatives

Stupid Conservatives:

Donald Trump could be banned from entering the UK after Theresa May, the Home Secretary, declared that she ‘may exclude’ people who are not ‘conducive to the public good’.

Banning entry to the UK for the US Republican presidential contender, who remains the frontrunner in the heated contest, has been called for by more than 560,000 people in a petition to the Government.

After reaching 100,000 signatures, the Government confirmed that the petition could be discussed in Parliament.

Now a spokesman for Mrs May has responded officially warning that Mr Trump’s comments, in which he called for a ban on Muslims entering the USA in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, were “divisive, unhelpful and wrong”.

So what happens when Donald Trump becomes the Republican candidate for the US presidency, and slaughters Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, and is elected President of the United States next November? Are they going to prevent him from visiting the UK (his mother was Scottish)? I think they’ll just end up with a helluva lot of egg on their faces.

If nothing else, it goes to show how politically correct the UK Conservative party has become under David Cameron.

If they had any sense, they’d keep quiet, and wait and see who actually wins the election.
Conventional wisdom is that Hillary Clinton will beat Donald Trump easily. But is that right?

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now Tied in Latest Poll

If Trump can run rings around all the other Republican candidates (like he actually has), isn’t it likely that he’ll do exactly the same to Hillary Clinton?

She’s not a very strong candidate. She’s really just the ambitious wife of a former president. She has name recognition. But then, so does Jeb Bush. And look where it got him.

From what I’ve read on US left wing blogs, nobody is particularly enthusiastic about Hillary. They’re pretty disillusioned with all their politicians too. But they’re absolutely terrified of Donald Trump, who’s going from strength to strength.

The great thing about Trump (in my view) is that he’s so wonderfully – exuberantly – politically incorrect. If he does nothing else for America as president, he’ll be doing everybody a favour if he can eradicate political correctness.

But could he achieve even that? Trump has enemies on both right and left. He even has enemies in the UK. And the US congress and senate is chock full of politically correct politicians on both left and right (just like the UK parliament). They could probably all combine to thwart his plans.

But whatever happens, it’s going to be a very interesting year in politics.

    Frank every poll Ive seen so far has Trump way ahead of even hitlery. The democrats on CNBC were complaining how she has so much baggage tied to her its going to be a Trump win. Sanders is a dead duck and they have nobody to run. But it wouldn’t matter any way. Trumps and so many others have put their finger on the real reason Trump is so popular,the public/voters are sick and tired of all the career politicians and their progressive regressive mantra.

    Trumps literally walked away with it because he dared stand up and speak the truth to the American people. Something the progressive types have been doing their best to keep hidden with all their junk polls they pump out like cowshit daily.

    Remember all their polling always shows vast support for their next smoking ban or whatever ban,when we know they are all faked and turned inside out to invent support for something that nobody even cares about to begin with.

    Id bet those 560,000 so called petitioners are mostly liberals and English rinos in the conservative party. They are afraid if Trump shows up n the UK it could well lead to 100,000 turning out at his speeches in the UK. That would set of a fuse that could never be extinguished once it begins and that could mean UKIP overnite becomes the power to deal with in the UK.

    In a way it represents voter mutiny against the ruling class everywhere.

      it would seem that at least one Muslim group in Indonesia was getting funding from a Michael Bloomberg-owned organisation in 2010:

      An organization owned by the mayor of New York City has channeled over US$390,000 to Muhammadiyah as part of a global anti-tobacco campaign, but the country’s second largest Islamic organization denied the funding influenced its recent edict banning smoking.

      A. Fattah Wibisono, a deputy secretary at Muhammadiyah’s council tasked with issuing religious edicts, acknowledged that his organization was cooperating with the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, a philanthropic organization established in 2006 by Michael R. Bloomberg to fight tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries…

        So I gather she would invite ISIS,BLOOMBERG and any other smoke hater outfit into the UK with open arms.

    Not sure what to make of Trump but literally anyone would be better than Hilary who has rode on her husband’s name and that’s all she has to offer. I am a keen follower of US politics since it was one of my honours subjects and I find it all fascinating. I love that Trump is so non PC and has so upset the nice consensual apple cart no matter what happens next.

  5. waltc says:

    He is not opposed by most R’s or independants for being un PC but for being a thin skinned thuggish bully without boundaries and without any real or practical ideas. Make America Great Again has no more substance than did Obama’s platform of Hope. and most national polls have the odious Hillary ahead. Comes to a choice between the two, many R’s will stay home. The q is, how many D’s will too?

    Nor, to get down to minutia, can you rationalize T’s doing that public service spot. The network did not at the time have him over a barrel, in fact, the other way around because of his ratings. No, he’s a nonsmoker, told his kids not to smoke, and it was a continuum for him to tell the world not to. Nor did it hurt that it was also the PC thing to do and he’s not above appealing to the PC crowd or the progressives either when it suits his purposes or burnishes his ego. I don’t think it,s germane either way btw. No more than had he done a Don’t drink and drive

    Whether he has majority support or not Trump will not be allowed to win or take power. The ‘establishment’ will use any methods available to them, legal and illegal, to ensure he does not get to be president.
    Look back at what happened in Greece when an ‘outside’ party took power, look at how opposing parties in France joined ranks against the FN. Democracy only stretches enough to allow a free choice between the establishment’s acceptable options.

      `woodsy the GOP rinos running the party right now are finally starting to realize trump has it in his pocket and are now ready to jump ship and get on board the Trump train…….even former speaker of the house newt Gingrich said it 2 weeks ago,its time for the establishment gop to get on board with trump and even the lefts cnbc is saying the same thing. Trump has a train on full steam and nothing is stopping it.

    For what it’s worth, the very sight of Donald Trump sets off warning bells in my head and I tend to trust my instincts.

    His activities in Scotland over that golf course are hard to forget.

    “Michael Forbes (born circa 1952) is a farmer, part-time salmon fisherman and quarry worker from near Balmedie in Aberdeenshire, Scotland who became known after his refusal to sell his land to billionaire Donald Trump who is planning to build an extensive luxury golf course complex in the area.Forbes’s farm, which is said by Trump to be in a state of disrepair, has the words “NO GOLF COURSE” painted on a shed.

    He attracted media attention in the United States for standing up to Trump. Forbes has insisted that he will “never sell” his land to Trump despite being offered a payment £450,000 in addition to a salary of £50,000 per year for an unspecified job. The plans to build the golf complex were rejected in late November 2007 by Aberdeenshire Council but were later called in by the Scottish Government, who gave approval in November 2008. He has been compared to the beachcomber character in the film Local Hero.

    In August 2011, contractors hired by Trump fenced off a piece of land belonging to Forbes despite Forbes having the title deeds.

    The Trump organization is now closing in on Forbes’ home and have threatened to try to use a compulsory purchase order to forcibly remove him and his family from their land. Trump claimed that Forbes’ property was a slum that would spoil the view from his new hotel. Forbes retorted that Trump can “take his money and shove it up his arse.” The Tripping Up Trump Campaign have banded together to challenge the Trump organization on this issue.

    Forbes and his struggle with Trump features in the award winning documentary You’ve Been Trumped, directed by Anthony Baxter and produced by Richard Phinney. His portrait with his wife Sheila by Alicia Bruce is held in The National Galleries of Scotland collection. In 2012, Forbes won the ‘Top Scot’ award at the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards, provoking Trump to criticise Glenfiddich and Forbes, calling it a “terrible embarrassment to Scotland”.

    You’re fenced! Donald Trump puts up barrier and trees around Scottish neighbour’s home… and then sends him the bill

    2011

    “David Milne, 46, from Scotland, whose house is next to Donald Trump’s proposed golf course, was shocked when the American tycoon put up a fence around the property – and then billed him for it.

    Mr Milne and ‘The Donald’ have been at loggerheads for years after the landowner refused to sell his house to Trump in order to expand his lavish course.”

    Trump’s contractors erected the fence and planted dozens of trees around Mr Milne’s house before sending an invoice for £2820 ($4,600) – half the total amount of the cost.
    ‘There is no way I’m going to pay it,’ Mr Milne told the Scottish Daily Record.
    ‘As far as I’m concerned it’s just another attempt to intimidate and bully me. But it’s not going to work. I’m not paying any attention to it at all.’

    2012
    “Residents living near Donald Trump’s £750m golf resort in Aberdeenshire have suffered ‘egotistical bullying,’ film-maker Bill Forsyth claims.

    He compares the living conditions of Trump’s neighbours with living in communist-era Romania as a highly critical documentary on the development called You’ve Been Trumped is set to air on UK television for the first time this Sunday.

    Forsyth was left ‘dazed and shocked’ after watching the film about proud Scottish homeowners taking on the celebrity tycoon.

    The film shows residents’ water and electricity being cut off, tonnes of earth being piled up next to their homes and film-maker Anthony Baxter as complaints by locals to police are ignored.

    Forsyth told The Guardian: ‘We’re watching real lives and livelihoods mercilessly put to hazard by a malign concoction of egotistical bullying, corporate muscle flexing, craven averting of gaze by national politicians and crass misreading of events by local authorities including police.’

    As he seems not to play nicely with the little people, of which I am one, the thought of him in charge of an entire country makes me shiver.

    Not that it’s any of my business, of course.

    • harleyrider1978 says:

      Rose what gets me is why would the man turn down 450,000 pounds and 50,000 a year salary for an unspecified job. Just for his land. In Nashville the big liberals running it are taking land away from the little guys everyday to build the big liberal utopia they want downtown and extending outwards to where the poor black neighborhoods are at. The Nashville airport expansion the city also forcibly took homestead farms that had been in families for 200 years and gave them condemned property amounts for their land. Some didn’t receive enuf to even repurchase another home.

      At least from what Ive read you posted this man was getting way more than what the property was worth and would have come out rich.

      Iminenet domain is the most abused left leaning metropolitan excuse used everywhere to defraud poor people out of their homes just so the city can develop it into 500,000 dollar condos and get the extreme end of taxes out of the land. No doubt that’s why bthe Scottish parliament went along with trumps plans and allowed the iminent domain to happen.

      If they came thru and took my house and land I wouldn’t get enuf to purchase another home. Id be stuck having to move back to the 3 acres Ive got up the road and start all over again with nothing as the state wouldn’t give me more than whats already owed on the house and land,even though Ive dumped 20 grand into it and 5 years of work.

      Now if they gave me 40% extra I could make the move and start over but with no money and all my former big cash tied into what Ive got,id be screwed to no end.

      At least Trump offered this guy a fantastic deal in my view. He sure got a better deal than the government would have given him.

    My twopence worth is Trump seems to enjoy the debates, the interviews and the controversy. The other contenders – by and large – don’t.

    He doesn’t carry any political baggage and seems to have no skeletons in his closet. Many of the others do – and it shows.

    I understand he’s mostly self-financing and like any rational super-rich individual he’ll want to see a return on his investment, so I suspect he’ll have a plan B, even if that’s also a last resort. Maybe heading up the World Bank or something as meaty as that.

    Woodsy 42 made a very valid point (above) and I suspect both Trump and his campaign team are well aware of that: the establishment doing all it can to protect their vested interests. It was something UKIP, the National Front as well as DSK (the guy who’s supposed to have tried it on with a cleaner in an hotel in NYC, who just so happened to be a shoe-in for the top job in France) didn’t quite grasp. (And I suspect France and Europe would be very different had DSK become the top walla in France).

    Personally I suspect Trump’s in it for the duration and he’s got the cash to ramp up the PR machine when the primaries start in earnest.

    What may make a huge difference is when he finally chooses a running mate for the VP. I suspect it’ll be someone way out there in the boonies who no one even thought about, but who happens to make perfect sense!

    Re his actions in Scotland, Trump was able to see Salmond in person and slammed the slimeball for approving a wind farm within (very distant) sight of his golf course. Much of what Trump said is very true as folks are sick to the molars with those things.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/scotland/9227011/US-tycoon-Donald-Trump-appears-in-Scottish-Parliament.html

    Whatever the outcome, Trump’s put a firecracker into the whole campaign and it is so very different to what we saw with Obama eight years ago.
