CNN anchor Don Lemon conducted an interview with Donald Trump. It went very well, for Mr. Trump, that is. So well that Lemon’s scoop is difficult to locate on CNN’s website. Instead, scooped the telephonic exchange.

Lemon was at a loss. He got more sour-looking by the minute, as Trump bulldozed him with the force of his convictions and personality. There was no interrupting Trump’s train of thought. The “builder-businessman” was going to say his piece.

Americans have been listening intently. “A CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday,” reported National Journal, “showed Trump had 12 percent of the vote among Republicans and Republican-leaners, second only to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who earned 19 percent.”

Trump’s retort: “I’m not happy being behind Jeb Bush.” He went on to ponder beguilingly how Bush 3 (a man he would fire) could be soaring in the polls:

I don’t get it. He’s in favor of Common Core, extremely weak on immigration. He thinks people come over for love. I don’t understand why he’s in first place. Maybe it’s the Bush name. Last thing we need is another Bush. But I will tell you, I’m a little surprised he’s in the position he’s in.

As Trump sees it, his countrymen are being betrayed by the Beltway. To make America great, he’d have to restore American prosperity. Jeb Bush will not do America’s bidding. It’s not his thing.

True. Jeb Bush will not lead America to the Promised Land, in Trump’s words. No politician will. The hope is that Trump, who does not need to ride us like the others, will get the parasites-in waiting off our backs.

Trump’s strength is that he keeps coming back to the stuff of life: business, economics, making a living. Politics is the stuff that kills all that.

To Trump, actions are measures by their outcomes. Mitt Romney, by Romney’s own admission, “left everything on the field.” He gave his all in the 2012 presidential campaign. But from Trump’s perspective, “Romney did a poor job.” He didn’t win. “It’s a race that should have been won,” asserted Trump.

Still, Lemon kept trying to trip Trump: “You’re being clobbered by Republican leaderships.” While voters take Donald Trump very seriously; his party’s leadership does not.

But Trump knew better. He was not going to keep the GOP’s dirty little secrets. He doesn’t have to; he can fund his own political action committee. Yes, his rivals, opponents, the consultants, Rudy Giuliani—they may go on TV to denounce him; make light of him. But his lead in the polls is making that harder. Behind the scenes, the schemers are calling on Trump, sending him little love notes.

Lemon fastened his limp-wristed grip. Trump’s ostensible lack of gravitas was the tack to take: “Will you really be there on the stage with the other Republican candidates?” the anchor persisted in disbelief. A pumped Trump snapped, “Why would I not?!”


He, Trump, had attended the Wharton School of Business; was a great student at one of the toughest schools to get into; went on to make a tremendous fortune; wrote a business book that became the bestselling business book of all time; built a great company, employed tens of thousands of people over the years, and is a great success. How is he, Trump, unfit to stand on stage with “some governor who is nothing, and some senator who is not very good and has not done a good job?!”

Note that Trump resorts to self-praise, primarily, when denigrated by denizens of the political process. People have forgotten. So he must remind them: Success is about creating value for people in the free market; not wielding force against them in the political arena.

Our country is being run by people who don’t know what they’re doing. Our politicians are not smart. I want our country to thrive.


Illegal immigration is killing our country. You got to have a border. If you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country.

Lemon was aghast. Truth has that effect on the gormless. The anchor shifted the focus to Macy’s fit of pique, hoping he’d score some points against Trump in that department. The department store had discontinued Trump’s clothing line. Donald was “divisive,” Macy’s whined.

Trump’s one-two punch: “Macy’s folded under pressure. It’s not a big business for me; it’s very small. It’s ties and stuff. It’s a peanut. CEO Terry Lundgren folded under pressure. That’s the problem with our country; everyone folds under pressure. Two picketers arrive outside Macy’s and the store folds. People can’t handle pressure. That’s OK with me. It’s a very small business; let them do what they want to do. You have to ride through the pressure. They can’t handle pressure. It’s fine.”

Would that militant gay couples were as tolerant toward the poor baker who doesn’t wish to bake them a wedding cake as Trump is toward those who shun his business.

The unremitting influx of peasants pouring over the U.S. border with Mexico is having a disastrous impact on America—on crime rates, urban sprawl, traffic congestion, overcrowding, pollution, infrastructure, the loss of rural and protected land and species. Malfunctioning media—overbearing fools like Fox News’ ubiquitous Juan Williams—believe Trump’s pronouncements on these effects is “divisive.”

Au contraire. Trump’s impolitic truth-telling seems to have united a hell of a lot of hopeless Americans.

The best of Trump Lemon left for last. “Is there anything you’d like to clear up while I have you here?”

“Nothing, absolutely nothing,” Donald fired back.

There will be no Trump apology tour.

    Jews pretend to be angry with him but they actually see him as very useful since Trump puts all the blame on Mexicans and Chinese, thus distracting Americans from the real problem: unquestioned and unchallenged Jewish power.

    He never mentions the Jews whose power promoted reckless ‘diversity’ and created the NWO where global oligarchs–esp Jews–raked in gazillions via ‘free trade’. And he never mentions how Wall Street scum robbed this country blind.

    And he sucks up to homos who’ve culturally degraded and defiled this country.

    Typical Paleocon/WN nonsense.

    First of all, the capitol of our state is Jerusalem, as it has been even since King David took it from the Jebusites, the Palestinians of their day.

    Second of all, even when/if the US stops it’s financial and military support for us it won’t help. The Arabs, Turks and Persians are primitive and stupid people who we will effortlessly annihilate at a time that it is convenient for us to do so. You have no way of saving them.

    Why don’t you just enjoy the remaining time you have left with the Palestinians and your Arab friends instead of torturing yourself with unrealistic fantasies of taking our G-d given holy soil from us?

    The Caucasian interlopers in the Levant have about as much right to Jerusalem as do the descendants of King Kamehameha.

    So, instead you’re going to vote for someone who sucks up to the homos, the feminists, the illegal immigrants, and the Jews? You might want to think that over a bit.

    Who was the last President that put the US over Israel? Is such a thing even possible anymore? You can’t win the game if you can’t even get a seat at the table. Anyone who speaks out publicly against Jewish influence in America stands no chance.

    So, repeat after me: “Israel sure is smart! We should make our immigration policy more like theirs.”

    There is one advantage to Diversity.

    A greater willingness among non-whites to challenge Jewish power.

    In a healthy democracy, the group/organization/network with the greatest power must come under constant scrutiny, criticism, and challenge.

    When Wasps were the premier power in America, their power & privilege were called out and challenged, often by Wasps themselves.

    Today, Jews are the most powerful people in America. They single-handedly even forced ‘gay marriage’ on this country.

    Jews control finance, media, gambling, high tech, medicine, law firms, government, academia, and etc.

    So, in order for US to be a healthy democracy, Jewish power(and its mini-me, homo power) must be inspected and challenged.

    But because of the Holocaust Cult and ‘white guilt’ hysteria, most white gentiles assume that they have no ‘moral authority’ to speak truth to Jewish Power. Jews must eternally be seen as ‘helpless saintly victims’.
    So, we have an increasingly sick democracy where the most powerful ethnic group is not challenged by the biggest majority, white gentiles. It is no wonder that US is growing more corrupt, decadent, deceitful, and even evil… what with Jews using foreign policy to wreak havoc on the Middle East and Ukraine… and using ‘gay agenda’ as a proxy of Jewish-American imperialism all over the world.

    Diversity and immigration are problematic to the future of America, but one silver lining is that non-whites are not so gushy-wushy about Jews. So, as US fills up with more non-whites, there will be more direct challenge to Jewish power. That is good for American democracy.

    Of course, increasing divisiveness due to diversity and decreasing skill level as US becomes Third-World-ized are NOT good for democracy.
    But at least Jewish power will come under some kind of pressure, and that IS good for democracy. Is it any surprise that California is leading the way in BDS because it is turning more diverse?

    The best way would be for US to remain majority white and for white gentiles to speak truth to Jewish power. But that isn’t happening. As long as white gentiles suck up to Jews, Jews as the ruling elites will become more corrupt, more repressive, more abusive, more contemptuous. And that is bad for democracy.

    Oddly enough, even though white American gentiles are so slavish to Jews, Jewish elites are under the paranoid impression that white gentiles might finally wake up and challenge Jewish power. To neutralize this possibility, Jews decided on increasing diversity so that they could play ‘divide and rule’ among various gentile groups.
    But what if, in the long run, the masses of non-whites come to see Jews, rather than white gentiles, as the real privileged rulers of America whose power need to be challenged and checked, even brought down?

    Jews are playing a risky game.

    PS. Most pathetically, there are some white gentiles(especially on the Right) who hope that Jews will come over to their side IF they act even more slavish to Jews. Even though their main political/moral obligation should be to criticize and challenge the premier power in America(Jewish power), they hope that Jews will side with whites and work to stop immigration and ‘diversity’ IF whites pledge eternal toady-ness to Jews.
    Indeed, these whites want Jews to wake up to the fact that non-whites are less toady-ish and slavish to the Jewish masters of America.
    Their plea goes as follows: “We whites are totally happy to kiss your Jewish ass forever and ever and ever. Really! So, why not be nice to us who shall never ever criticize or challenge you? Why support those diverse non-whites who won’t be as slavish and loyal to you as we are?”

    In other words, choose our dereliction of democratic duty(of criticizing the powers-that-be) over the possibility that non-whites might actually decide to play proper democratic politics by challenging Jewish power for their own interests.

    Trump’s popularity here comes from being the candidate wiiling to tell the most truth. More and more, ordinary people see both an intolerable emergency and a political clergy unwilling to acknowledge that emergency.

    I get the feeling that even if all the Jews killed themselves this commentator would paint it as part of an evil conspiracy. Is he a troll here to discredit the site? Or just mentally ill?

    Jews do tend to network with other Jews more than non-Jews.

    Jews do tend to skew more immigrationist than the general white population.

    Jews do tend to be wealthier than non-Jews.

    Jews do tend to be highly influential in intellectual fields.

    These are facts, but I have no idea how you can get from these facts to the crazy conspiricising.

    Maybe this is an example of how creating political taboos drives people insane? Since one cannot discuss the above facts, people who notice them often go nuts?

    Trump should then go on to talk about Israel’s very open highly racialized racially xenophobic National Origins Immigration Policy …and Mexico’s highly xenophobic National Origins Immigration Policy.

    Then Trump should go after the H1B and L1B Asian scab labor program.

    Then Trump should viciously attack the passage of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act and the loathsome reprobate Teddy Kennedy.

    They see a brown shoplifter, or a hub cap nabber, and they’re screaming at the pulpit that the “end is near!”, but show no concern for massive invasions killing thousands, arming terrorists to overthrow governments, arming horrific dictators, all paid for by future American taxpayers with interest – saddling poor Americans with austerity from debt that rich people spent on war.
    And for them – who’s to blame for your woes? Other poor people that look different. It’s the most pathetic political screed used over and over for centuries.

    Biff, I’m not defending the people who invited the immigrants at all, and thought that was clear. Either way, it is completely obvious that the immigrant invasion has been a disaster for communities throughout America, and those roofers you mention are largely putting roofs on the houses of the people who are fleeing the neighborhoods that the roofers and their families destroyed.

    How is someone who defends the immigrants over citizens any better than the immigrants or the people who profit from the immigrants. Supporting foreigners over Americans is treason against the American people.

    One Paleocon mentioned the 9 year old war in Lebanon is some lame attempt to prove me wrong, despite the fact that thousands of Lebanese were killed in that war and that the international community needed to spend over 20 billion to rebuild it. It is also worth noting that the current estimates are that it will take over 30 years to rebuild Gaza after our last war, where we only used about 1/ten billionth of our strength.

    When we get serious, we won’t be bombing dug in light infantry, we’ll destroy ports, refineries, power stations and water treatment plants. The Arabs/Turks/Persians will simply starve to death, unless the international community is willing to feed them for free. Then again, Paleos/WNs probably believe they will be able to rally the western countries to spend trillions of dollars to send food and medicine to their Arab-Islamic friends; they are not known for their realism, after all.

    You’re avoiding. quite typical for one issue non-voter.

    Illegal immigration has been very destructive economically, socially and culturally in this country. It’s poison and people are sick of it. This is why Trump is gaining ground.

    As for the economic issues you are carping about – blame both parties and in particular the Clintons have been at the center of this. See Clinton set it all in motion with the passage of NAFTA, PNTR with China, killing Glass-Stegall, etc. Without all this we wouldn’t have had the massive stock-RE bubble of 2001-2007, followed by TARP, QEx, etc.

    It’s nice the way you shift blame to Trump for what has been a largely Clinton-Democratic operation from the get go.

    At least Trump realizes the economic rape that occured under NAFTA and PNTR with China and wants to fix it. You do not.

    Obama is neck deep in it with his support of TPP and further support for neo-liberal globalization of the workforce. Hillary is as well. Yet you are silent in regards to them.

    Trump is focusing on the things he can fix. And illegal immigration and trade are at the top of that and needs to be fix despite what people like you say. He knows Wall Street is dangerous over inflated and has publicly said so. But it is beyond anyone’s ability to fix now for rather obvious reasons. Wall Street will pay a price. Just wait a bit, but considering liquidating your stock portfolio while you can.

    The war stuff is winding down. You’re beating a dead horse like a lot of professional peace activists. Our military is exhausted despite what FoxNews and some of the Leftwing dingbat writers on this site says and the public has zero taste for more war. What is going on is the the occasional blowing up of some Muslim fanatics by drones or wet work teams. BFD. It’s not war, that’s public sanitation.

    Anyone who shoots dead or blows up a bunch of baby and women killers like the ISIS goons is good in my book.

    Those other wars you’re carping about, like Libya. We just tagged along. Europe wanted Gaddafi’s oil and the 60 billion he had stashed in Europe. Your liberal Eurotrash buddies really screwed up on that one. Syria, the blame goes to your friend Obama and Hillary. Same with Egypt.

    Greasy, Paleos and WNs generally wish to be rid of you and your fifth-column cousins in the West. They sure as hell don’t care about Muslims? Do you even know what a Paleo is?

    Realsim isn’t believing that Israel and American Jews can dominate the world.

    The highly racialized nonwhite majority Democratic Party is demanding that The Historic Native White American Majority commit demographic suicide within the borders of the US. This is a declaration of a race war against The Historic Native Born White American Majority. Donald Trump has 8 billion dollars that can be used to bankroll a political movement to reverse the open and deliberate policy of race-replacement that the La Raza Race Power Party=The Democratic Party is waging against our People.

  46. “The war stuff is winding down. You’re beating a dead horse like a lot of professional peace activists. Our military is exhausted despite what FoxNews and some of the Leftwing dingbat writers on this site says and the public has zero taste for more war….”

    I agree that the military is probably exhausted and that the public is definitely not in the mood for more war, but I tend to doubt that there aren’t people in high places who wouldn’t want to take on Iran and Syria.

    It wasn’t Fox News that sent troops into Iraq or Afghanistan. It also hasn’t been that long ago that there was a major push for involvement in Syria, or that our house and senate gave Netanyahu standing ovations that would have made Stalin blush, and Netanyahu was basically asking for America to give Israel more money and to attack Iran. The U.S. is also apparently equipping and training rebels in Syria that are only a hop-skip-and -jump from ISIS and Al Qaeda. I think someone other than Fox News wants war. Just yesterday, I read that the U.S. is stockpiling bunker buster bombs in case the nuclear talks with Iran fail. The U.S. may not be in the best position to make war, but it definitely seems that there are powerful people who would go to war. Hopefully, they are on a tight leash.

    I don’t care about ISIS, whatever ISIS really is, but droning people in a foreign country, no matter how extreme they may be, is an act of war. I think the U.S. would go to war if the same were done to U.S. citizens by anyone other than illegals or Israelis.

    Nationalists always lie about their goals when confronted with how unrealistic they are; probably because they are too proud to admit defeat. They are very similar to the arabs in that sense.

    Look at the nationalist parties in Europe: Golden Dawn, Jobbik and whatever the German Neo Nazi party is called explicitly make clear that saving the Palestinians is their number 1 priority. Richard Spencer has likewise always said that saving the Palestinians was what is most important. Paul Craig Roberts, Giraldi, Michael Collins Piper, need I go on?

    You do bring up a good point though, after we get rid of the Arab/Persian/Turks we will probably be forced to listen to a bunch of “we never cared about the Arabs anyway!” from you and your lot.

    I’ve given up voting. Voting implies consent to being governed by the crooked politicians and their puppeteers. So as a consciousness objector I can sit back and watch the soap operatic farce as entertainment. Trump is a leading man that brings in eyeballs. You have to think the GOP would appreciate that, but it appears they don’t. Instead they join their Democratic brothers in condemnation. Don’t you love bipartisanship?

    Trump has also tapped into the immigration rage the elite have cynically fostered. Where it all leads to? No clue. But if it scares the bedeviled out of the political prostitutes, hooray for Donald.

    We understand. Really, we do; Jews are blameless and devoid of agency (when it comes to anything bad). Nobody ever criticizes Jews for legitimate reasons.

    Obviously, Jews would never do anything like attack or punish people for crossing them.

    Of course I’m serious.

    Nationalist are bad now? Does that apply to nationalists in Israel? Also, you mention WNs as being some kind of pro Arab (hence anti Israel) group. If you are referring to WNs in this country then clearly you are out of your mind. WNs generally detest Arabs and other ethnic groups. I am not even sure what you referring to when you mention “Paleocons” and I am fairly certain you dont know either.

    Personally I don’t care what superstition you believe – Islam is no more absurd than thinking that you are G-d’s Chosen people and thinking that this same G-d granted you a patch of dirt in the Middle East. Israel is where they are because of military might and political power in other countries. Bravo to them. They have found a way to survive. That doesn’t mean I have to care one way or the other except for the fact that they siphon off my tax dollars at a prodigious rate.

  67. @Greasy William

    Your point about nationalism just sounds like Israeli/Jewish projection. If you really believe that American Jews can secure America or Israel forever, you aren’t just unrealistic, you are crazy.

    I seriously doubt that any European nationalist party has saving Palestine as its number one objective, but I don’t follow the groups. From what I have seen, some are even Israel friendly and have obviously been infiltrated. Why else would you see Israeli flags at BNP rallies?

    I also doubt that the primary focus of any of the individuals you mentioned is to save the Palestinians, at least from what I have read of them. That said, I understand that the Palestinians are the victims, and despise Israel and the people who push Israel’s interests in the U.S. I also hope the Palestinians win out in the end, as I would see it as a victory for America also…as long as we don’t get the refugees from Israel. That would be a disaster of any country.

    Well, I don’t care much about the Arabs, Turks or Muslims in general, but I don’t like paying for them to be attacked either. You are dreaming if you believe that Israel can take out those nations on its own. I don’t see Israel doing much fighting outside of attacking neighboring militias and practically defenseless Palestinians.

  70. First of all, you guys are being beyond disingenuous and I don’t appreciate it, but will humor you in the interest of furthering the discussion.

    Anybody saying that WN’s/Paleocons are anti-Arab or anti-Muslim obviously doesn’t know many WN’s. Stormfront/Takimag/whatever Spencer’s place is called are pro Arab central. 4chan, don’t even get me started. And although it isn’t as big now that Ahmadenjad is gone, we all remember how pro Persian the far right was during his reign. As a Jewish person, I’ve always felt that the conflict with the Arabs was just political, whereas the conflict with the Persians is racial. Hitler was a great lover of the Persian people whereas he never seemed particularly fond of Arabs, despite his sympathy for their cause.

    Secondly, the BNP is not a Nationalist party, it is a joke. Nationalism is totally foreign to the Anglo temperament which is why the only nationalists movements to ever have any success in English speaking world are Scottish, Irish and Welsh nationalism, which themselves are just dressed up anti English racism.

    Third, yes all serious European Nationalist movements regard the Palestinians as their first priority. The only way someone could deny this is if they were totally unfamiliar with Jobbik’s and Golden Dawn’s platform.

    Fourth, you have some nerve to compare Torah Judaism which goes back over 3000 years with Goyish Euro Nationalism which is really just a secular paganism. The two have nothing in common.

    As for a Palestinians victory over Israel being good for America, all I will say is this: I love America but we both know damn well that even if the Palestinians were to defeat the Jews, America will be long gone by then. America isn’t dying, it’s already dead. It just hasn’t been made official yet.

    I suppose the point is that Jews qua Jews do not benefit from immigration, actually they suffer.

    Big business owners, real estate landlords and others might benefit and many might be jewisb…but there is no way in which a jew benefits just by being a jew.

If you would “annihilate” any of them, Tel Aviv turns into radioactive ash the next moment – make no mistake about it, “g-D” will be as interested in you as he was during the Holocaust. Jerusalem might be under Israeli administration, but nobody, not even the US recognises this. As far as your “g-D” given land, if US demographics change, its policy vis-a-vis Israel will change – and ISrael will have nobody to turn to. So much for “g-D” who was pretty much useless when the Holocaust happaned.

  86. If Paul had balls he would be a contender. Forget about Paul. The rest of the field is homogenized bull shit. Only Trump is his own man.

    Sometimes people misidentify a problem:

    Government is not the problem. Bad government is the problem.
    Fiat money is not the problem. Debt money is the problem.
    Jews are not the problem. Zionists are the problem.
