I suppose I got interested in the US election on the day in June last year when Donald Trump rode down the escalator in the Trump Tower, and announced in a rambling speech (which I watched) that he was running for the Presidency.
He was a new kind of figure in US politics. Mostly I’m not that interested in politics (I paid no attention to the past two US elections), because politicians are almost always interchangeable suits speaking the same platitudes and empty promises and, more often than not, outright lies. Here was a loud, brash guy who built skyscrapers and ran casinos. He was a somebody. And when the entire US media and political class started screaming and shouting that he was completely unsuitable, unstable, sexist, racist, and fascist, that only made him look even more interesting. And when he started saying that he’d build a wall to keep out all the Mexican rapists, and stop muslim terrorists coming into the USA, and give Putin a free hand to wipe out ISIL, and they got even more hysterical, that just made him yet more fascinating, as well as gorgeously politically incorrect.
This US election has been all about Donald Trump. It’s been about Trump, Trump, and nothing else but Trump. Everyone else has been reduced to bit part players. There were 16 other Republican candidates in the primaries, and they were all blown out of his way like snow in front of a freight train. I can’t even remember most of their names now. They weren’t nobodies before Trump showed up, but they were all nobodies after he’d passed through.
There’s only one nobody left now. And she’s called Hillary Clinton. And she really is a genuine nobody. Her only claim to fame is that she’s the scheming wife of a previous, charismatic president. She has zero charisma herself. She’s never achieved anything worth remembering. She’s just a long row of crooked zeroes. It’s almost as if the Democratic party hunted through the box for the very worst candidate they could find, and they found her. And now they have to help her up the steps to make speeches that nobody listens to. And yet, until very recently, the mainstream media has been saying that she was going to be a shoo-in. It was going to be a coronation for her.
And tomorrow it’s up to Americans to decide whether they prefer him or her. It’s still their country (just), after all. And I think (despite the meaningless opinion polls) they’re going to prefer the somebody over the nobody. It’s just a guess. I find it very easy to imagine Donald Trump in the White House. And almost impossible to imagine Hillary Clinton.
And also there’s the yard signs. I was listening a day or two back to some guy who said he’d been criss-crossing America for months, and that – apart from a few cities on the east and west coast – America was more or less paved with Donald Trump yard signs. I’ve heard quite a few people say something very similar.
I’ve also heard a lot of people say that they personally don’t know anyone who’s going to vote for Hillary. And that’s no surprise. Most Dems wanted Crazy Bernie as their candidate, and would have had him if Hillary hadn’t rigged the result in her own favour with her superdelegates in the DNC. There’s no enthusiasm for Hillary.
Compare that with the lone homeless black woman who stood guard over Trump’s star:
The homeless woman who was brutally harassed by Hillary Clinton supporters as she guarded Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has been found.
Last week a man smashed Trump’s star with a sledgehammer, after it was repaired a woman, now identified as Denise Scott, decided to guard the star while taking an onslaught of abuse from the left-wing loons prevalent in Hollywood.
Scott held a sign that read “20 Million Illegals and Americans Sleep on the Streets in Tents. Vote Trump.”
She was viciously attacked as she sat peacefully exercising her First Amendment rights by the leftists who continue to preach to others about coexisting.
Since then, the Trump team has been trying to find the woman to thank her.
Trump supporters have started a GoFundMe page for her with the goal of raising $100,000 (it currently sits at
This, and any number of other straws in the wind, tell me that Americans are going to vote in a huge landslide for Donald Trump tomorrow. It’s going to be bigger than the Reagan landslide. It’s gonna be yuge.
But lots of people are saying that the election will be rigged to stop him. But the same people have also said that election rigging can only change the result by a percentage point or two. Election-rigging can’t stop landslides.
Other people – like Wikileaks’ Julian Assange – have been saying that the US political establishment won’t accept a Trump presidency. Trump is too much of a loose cannon to let him get his fingers anywhere near the nuclear button. They’ll stop him, one way or other. But I don’t think that’s going to happen either. Because Donald Trump isn’t really the outsider they make him out to be. He’s actually just another billionaire oligarch in the US oligarchy. He’s a political donor who’s become a political candidate. Hillary Clinton even attended his wedding. And, as noted, he already has his own star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And also Trump is famous for the deals he cuts. He’s even written a book about it: The Art of the Deal. I bet he can do deals with the US political establishment just as well as with anyone else. And he’s also already got people like Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani and Ben Carson (and now even Ted Cruz) on his side. And he’s now managing to deliver well-scripted presidential speeches with a teleprompter.
No, this “outsider” is a consummate insider. If I have any real fears about him, it’s that he’s so much of an insider that he’ll prove to be as much an open-border globalist as the rest of them, and there won’t be any change at all.
So when Trump wins by a landslide tomorrow, I don’t think there is going to any vote-rigging, or any riots, or any palace coup. The Dems will be crestfallen. Hillary will make a gracious concession speech. Obama will congratulate Trump. All the back-room deals will have been done. And November 9 will be just another quiet day in America.
And with luck a Trump presidency will ensure that Brexit really will mean Brexit, and will encourage a few European politicians to campaign to leave (or reform) the bloated bureaucracy that is the EU. And global warming will become past history. And so will globalism and globalist eugenic measures like the smoking bans all over the world.
Anyway, I’ve got a 4:1 bet of £10 on Trump to win.
