It is not often that we get to witness a true phenomenon.
The Reagan Revolution was exciting but it was not a phenomenon. It was a carefully planned, long fought, and hard won battle between the Conservative wing and the Progressive wing of the Republican Party.
The Reagan Revolution began with The Speech by Ronaldos Maximus in support of Barry Goldwater delivered on a television program, Rendezvous with Destiny. It blossomed during his two successful terms as Governor of California, and sputtered a little in 1976 when he lost the nomination for President to Gerald Ford in the last contested convention in American History. Then after four years of hard grass roots work Reagan’s followers, this author included in their ranks, captured the party from precinct captain to national chairman. The next eight years led to many successes, compromises, and a failure culminating in the party being handed over as a prize to George the First and the rest is History. The Bush dynasty ran the brand into the ground.
Enter The Donald. Now here is a phenomenon. The last time a non-politician came from nowhere to capture the nomination of one of the major parties was in 1940 when the so-called Miracle in Philadelphia brought about the surprise nomination of a life-long Democrat who mirrored FDR’s positions on most important issues. He came in as a dark horse and through clever manipulation and behind the scenes machinations whisked the nomination out of the hands of the three top contenders: Senator Robert Taft of Ohio (the son of President William H. Taft), Senator Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan, and Manhattan District Attorney Thomas Dewey. Of course this was back in the day when there really were smoke filled backrooms and party bosses and long before primaries and State caucuses.
Here we are a life-time later and the ideological descendants of the Wilkie wonks after turning the Party of Reagan into Democrat Lite were planning on foisting another Bush on their unwilling base. Trump trumped them all. He knocked off one establishment straw man after another as well as the closest thing we will see to Reagan to stand unchallenged for the nomination. No grass roots organization, no army of K-Street consultants, hardly any advertising, just Trump. His triumph over everyone else who should have won is a true political phenomenon.
Now comes the general election at least once the Democrats stop the charade of Hillary losing her way to the nomination and hold their coronation of the Queen of Hearts.
Even relying on the yellow-dog Democrats, the dead Democrats who continue to vote, and the undocumented Democrats Hillary is going to face an uphill battle. When you consider she may be ethically challenged, personally cold, under threat of indictment, and bringing Slick Willy along her campaign strategy consists of convincing people that her opponent is worse. You can see she may not be the certainty the liberal media make her out to be.
Just look at her record. Everything she has accomplished has been because she said “I do” to Bubba. While he was playing hound dog and doing some government jobs on the side she was busy covering up his serial abuse of women and smoothing out the wrinkles from his frequent bimbo eruptions. Then after they left the White House, looting it on the way out the door, she ran for the Senate in a state where the Democrats own the vote. She spends a term and a half accomplishing nothing and is appointed as Secretary of State. The judgement of her tenure as America’s leading diplomat has yet to be adjudicated. She is a poor campaigner at best. And she’s bringing Bill back to the scene of his crimes. This is not the recipe for the Clinton Crime Family to recapture the capitol.
If that isn’t enough we do have Hillary’s top scandals as reported in World Net Daily(this is an abbreviated version):
