(Nov. 17, 2022) — Most folks are now aware that Donald Trump filed paperwork announcing his candidacy for the 2024 presidential campaign (below). The shrieks and wailing from the left are likened to the sounds of a wounded beast, but all is not well within the GOP, either. Many Republicans, independents, and moderates do not like Trump’s brash in-your-face approach, so it’ll be an uphill battle for Trump to secure the Republican nomination. Several others will likely contend for that prize, e.g., Ron DeSantis, Mike Pompeo, Kristi Noem, Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Joni Ernst, et al. Many pundits have already opined that even if Trump were to secure the Republican nomination, he has no legitimate chance of winning the general election. I say, ‘Not so fast.’

On Election Day 2016, The New York Times‘s front page predicted that Hillary Clinton was over 90% certain to be the 45th president; Trump won!! Admittedly, Hillary was a lousy candidate, but many of the 2016 problems/issues are still with us today, not the least of which is open borders. However, today that problem is infinitely more severe, compounded by rampant inflation, crime exploding in our major cities, corrupt government agencies and politicians, massive national debt, failing school systems, etc. The foregoing is topped off by a potential worldwide conflict leading to WWIII.

The day after the midterm elections, Joe Biden assured a reporter that he wasn’t going to change a thing; his policies would remain in place. Therefore, it is highly probable that America’s near-term future is more pain, suffering and insecurity. 

A quick reflection on one of Murphy’s Laws; “There is absolutely no limit to how bad things can get.” Human nature being predicable, most folks will grasp at any lifeline when in peril. And depending on where America may find itself in less than two years, our ever-shifting political landscape may well lead to a second term for Donald Trump. And love Trump or hate
him, he has proven he keeps his word and can get things accomplished in the face of deliberate roadblocks.

    Hillary was confident she would win because the same people who installed the total fraud Obama, effectively giving America’s government and her military to her enemies, promised her in 2008 she would be the much needed after Obama cover president if she dropped out of the 2008 Dem primary to insure Obama won.

    Hillary’s lackadaisical campaigning reflected her over-confidence and she lost to Obama’s nemesis Donald Trump. That created panic in the Uniparty to remove Trump from office to insure he would not reveal and act on The Obama Fraud. After BS investigations and impeachment attempts failed President Trump was removed from office in the stolen 2020 election. Now, both parties are desperate to prevent Trump from ever being President again to protect what is most important, themselves.
    IMO this is and was not hard to see and understand, but it is too big to prosecute………goodbye America……..
