Review: First 2016 Republican Presidential Debate

Donald Trump won't apologize to the SJWs

By Hunter Wallace

I watched the whole thing on FOX News … both the GOP Little League debate at 5 PM, and the main event at 8 PM.

That fact alone is a strong indicator of who watched last night’s presidential debate. I hate American politics. I hate the Republican Party. I don’t believe in liberal democracy. Surely, I’m one of Pew’s “disaffected” voters. The way that American politicians talk grates on my ears. I tuned out of mainstream politics a long time ago.

Donald Trump was the only reason I watched the debates. My opinion of the The Donald has soared since his announcement on June 16th. He’s made all the right enemies. He’s got the cuckservatives in an uproar. He’s been viciously attacked by the mainstream media and the Republican establishment. The Donald hasn’t backed down and apologized. That’s the source of his appeal and why he commands our attention.

As expected, the GOP Little League debate was boring and forgettable. Rick “Fed Up” Perry, who now wears glasses to make himself look intelligent, swaggered on stage and made some noises about how he has protected the border of Texas. This is laughable to anyone who has followed all the immigration bills which have died in the Texas legislature over the past 15 years. Texas has the worst illegal immigration problem in the country because the illegals are flooding into Texas from both across the Mexican border and from other states. In spite of overwhelming public pressure, Rick Perry and a Republican supermajority in the Texas legislature did nothing to address the problem. The Republican donor class in Texas, which Trump addressed later in the evening, wants open borders.

Lindsey Graham briefly stole the show by promising to start new wars in Iraq, Syria, and Iran. Carly Fiorina, who looks like a department store mannequin, made headlines with a cutting remark about Trump. Jim Gilmore and George Pataki had nothing to say but standard fare Republican boilerplate. Bobby Jindal couldn’t explain how he could beat Hillary Clinton when he losing to her in the polls in Louisiana. Finally, Rick Santorum is running again because he did pretty well last time and has nothing to lose.

The main event lived up to the expectations … once again, only because Donald Trump was on the stage. At the outset, he endeared himself to his most hardcore supporters, many of whom are Democrats and Independents, by refusing to throw his support behind the likes of ¡Jeb! should he win the nomination. This prompted the first outburst from Rand Paul which was visually brushed aside by the top dog in the race.

Megyn Kelly then asked Trump a doozy of a hard question about his remarks on Twitter about women. Accused of calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals,” The Donald raised his finger and said, “Only Rosie O’Donnell.” Millions of people erupted in laughter at home. He later followed up the question with a homerun, “The big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either.”

BOOM … in that defining moment, Trump announced he wouldn’t be cowed by the SJWs. He took a strong stand on one of the most pressing issues of our times. I was impressed.

When the subject turned to immigration, Trump pointed out the obvious: “So, if it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t even be talking about illegal immigration, Chris. You wouldn’t even be talking about it. This was not a subject that was on anybody’s mind until I brought it up at my announcement.” It wasn’t on anyone’s mind because the Republican Party decided after the 2012 election to sandbox the issue. He continued, “And I said we need to build a wall, and it has to be built quickly. And I don’t mind having a big beautiful door in that wall so that people can come into this country legally. But we need, Jeb, to build a wall, we need to keep illegals out.”

BOOM … another defining moment, and another strong stand by Trump on one of the great questions of our times.

Ted Cruz drove the point home in his follow up, “I have authored Kate’s law in the United States Senate and filed that legislation. I tried to get the Senate to vote to pass Kate’s law on the floor of the Senate just one week ago, and the leader of our own party blocked a vote on Kate’s law. … It’s not a question of stupidity. It’s that they don’t want to enforce the immigration laws. That there are far too many in the Washington cartel that support amnesty.”

In his Bulworth moment, Trump explained on stage how the system works, “I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave to many people, before this, before two months ago, I was a businessman. I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And do you know what? When I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them, they are there for me. … And that’s a broken system. … Well, I’ll tell you what, with Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. You know why? She didn’t have a choice because I gave.”

BOOM … another honest take on one of the defining issues of our time. As we have explained here many times, one of the most important reasons why the system cannot be reformed is because the oligarchs are able to buy and sell politicians like puppets and use their wealth to overturn the verdict of elections.

Unwittingly, Rand Paul nipped at Trump’s heels like a small dog and made his point, “He buys and sells politicians of all stripes, he’s already.” Trump’s comeback was devastating, “Well, I’ve given him a lot of money.”

In his closing statement, Trump grabbed a hold of the trade issue: “Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t win anymore. We don’t beat China in trade. We don’t beat Japan, with their millions and millions of cars coming into this country, in trade. We can’t beat Mexico, at the border or in trade.”

BOOM … a strong stance on one of the greatest issues of our times, the trade issue. Combine that with immigration, political correctness, and how billionaires have corrupted the political process and no one else even comes close.

Ted Cruz shined in several bright moments. Rubio came across as slick, but untrustworthy. Huckabee cucked for Israel, but had a great answer on abortion. Ben Carson was kind of endearing, but had nothing great to say. Kasich was as annoying as he was on his “Heartland” television show. Rand Paul was ornery and only succeeded in diminishing himself. Christie got the best of Rand Paul, but otherwise didn’t make an impression. Scott Walker, who has the charisma of a county coroner, couldn’t explain why he changed his stance on comprehensive immigration reform.

As for ¡Jeb!, he stuttered and left the least impression of anyone on the stage. The only reason he is outperforming George Pataki is because of his last name and fundraising success. He was clearly upstaged by Rubio who is younger, more articulate, and doesn’t have the Bush family name baggage. Surprisingly, ¡Jeb! and Trump managed to avoid a serious confrontation with the later calling the former a “true gentleman,” which is another way of saying that he is a poster boy for a Republican “beautiful loser.”

Trump had some great answers and lived up to his reputation as a tornado, a troll, or a wrecking ball, but I am not ready to jump on The Donald’s bandwagon. In the Little League debate, Fiorina hit his greatest weakness, which is that he is an unprincipled opportunist. I also think the first debate showed that Trump was out of his depth on public policy compared to some of the other candidates.

In the greater scheme of things, I don’t think that hurts him. Rubio, for example, is slick and polished, but untrustworthy on the great issues of our time. As president, The Donald would be the chief executive. He would set the tone and delegate his priorities to others. Either ¡Jeb! or Rubio, however, would certainly preside over a neocon restoration. Scott Walker, too, could show his true colors after the election like Paul Ryan. In the event of a Trump collapse, I think Ted Cruz would pick up most of his followers.

I don’t see that happening anytime soon though, not after watching these two debates. If I had to call it, I would say Trump’s lead grows and ¡Jeb! fades at the expense of Rubio.

  1. Donald’s great act is his trolling of the GOP. It is something that needed to happen and Trump has done it very well.

    Trump forced them to talk about immigration, something they did not want to do. He has exposed the game to everyone – it is about these men being bought and sold like cheap merchandise on the open market. He has also exposed the frauds among us on the right. We know them very well but many people are still being bamboozled. Men like Krauthammer for example.

    Whether Trump is principled or not – he has done us a great service. Carly Fiorina would be completely sold out to Mexico if not for Trump. She herself is an opportunist but at least Trump is doing it the right way.

  2. Excellent analysis. Poor conclusion. Alphas are opportunistic by their very nature. You are too accustomed to listening pussies talk.

    Your largest omission is not calling Megyn Kelly a bitch and that’s putting it nicely; the c-word is actually more fitting for her. Not that pretty either.

    Adolf Hitler ain’t coming back to life.

    Your standards are ridiculously too high. Great line about Fiorina looking like a department store mannequin. Agree.

    Alphas don’t implode they get stronger. We’ve never seen a better White man run for office. Ever.

    Unprincipled? Wrong. Alpha aggression.

  3. We’ve never seen a better White man run for office. Ever.

    Jim, that’s like pointing to an apple that’s just been thrown into a pool of raw sewage and commenting on how great the apple looks and how tasty it will be when you finally get your hands on it. While looking into that pool of sewage, did you happen to notice all of the other apples that have been tossed in their over the decades. At one time, some of those rotted, sewage-filled apples looked rather tasty.

    Trump has as good a chance of “fixing” this country as you do going into Jackson and fixing that shithole with a broom and a dustpan, and without removing any of the blacks in the process.

  4. Sorry, Jim.

    Maybe I am too cynical after watching so many people get suckered into the Ron Paul movement in 2008 and 2012. We even had people here cheering for Mitt Romney last time around.

  5. Great article; seriously, where do you get this level of insight day in day out?

    As for me, I tried to watch the debate but as soon as the stream came on it was Kristy talking, and I just couldn’t stand another moment of it.

    I then followed the debate on The Right Stuff comment section, realizing that I could get the gist of what happened without exposing myself to cuckservatives.

    As far as the “big picture”, Trump could win this thing, and actually slow the decline of America, but not enough to make a fundamental difference. The cycles of history are stronger than any man or even nation can withstand.

    Supposing Trump gets shafted on the nomination, he can take the hard right with him out of the GOP.

    Trump could also lose to the Democratic Machine with its phalanxes of “identity” voters, which would also be a needful lesson to our people, that even a certified anti-cuck can’t undo the numerical damage to the United States and we must cut our losses and seek Partition.

    Lately, Alex Jones has been testing the waters of race realism at first through lieutenant Paul Joseph Watson, and more recently himself, though still tangentially, rather than head on. The flame out of Rand Paul* and cuck-libertarianism will weigh heavily on Alex Jones as he seeks a way forward for his operation.

    The infowarriors are the next piece of the exponential growth model.

    The only thing I am upset about is that Bob Whitaker will get zero oxygen with Trump around, I was hoping he would have an opportunity to bring the Mantra to Presidential politics by getting 1% of the vote and possibly spoiling the election, but on balance I cannot complain as we are hitting our exponential growth targets. Trump is just a epiphenomena of that growth curve.

    * Paul said some crap about “the 4th Amendment”, dude, the Supreme Court just spent the entire year wiping its ass with the Constitution! It’s a dead letter!

  6. Yeah, very good rundown.

    I think most of us appreciate The Donald, not in the belief that he might actually change anything coming out of Washington, but for his knack for pooping on the ne’er-do-wells he’s running against. They all certainly deserve it.

    Just a few thoughts for those who might still be fooled by Ted Cruz types, who are campaigning from the Dubya playbook, who campaigned from the Reagan playbook, who campaigned from a distorted version of Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”:

    1. What was the left’s reaction to the Dred Scott decision in 1857? Uh, John Brown and a war. What is the right’s reaction to the SCOTUS’ homo marriage ruling? Uh, grasshoppers.

    2. So, if these allegedly devout Christians are completely devoted to the anti-Christian state of Israel – on biblical grounds, why is their only debate remark on Obergefell that of Kasich, that he knows and respects fags?

    Folks, don’t keep falling for these alleged evangelical politicians. They’re lying through their teeth and laughing all the way to the bank. Cruz, for example, is married to Wall Street, for God’s sake.

    They’re all utter slime. It’s just that one of them is pointing that out, and for that he is being recognized.

    Sorry, Jim.

    Maybe I am too cynical after watching so many people get suckered into the Ron Paul movement in 2008 and 2012. We even had people here cheering for Mitt Romney last time around.
    ——————————————

    Aw, come on. You endorsed Romney in 2012.

    • There was one individual here, 313Chris, who was pushing Romney really hard. I supported him just to see if White Northerners would back Romney-Ryan, two of their own, over Obama.

  8. The big question for this redneck? Anyone recommend a great vet? For CNN? Who is now foaming around their collective mouths at what a killer job Mr. Trump did in ducking and avoiding the cuckservative BS, along with more of CNN’s smarmy Maxist breakdown? Rabid, son, I swear! Rabid!

    And as for whatzername, there’s always working a pole in Vegas….

  9. I also watched the debates. As I’ve said before what if they promised you the world? In the recent Congressional elections the Republicans won in a landslide promising to do two things; crush Amnesty and eliminate Obama care. So here we are. Amnesty and Obama care are going strong as all the Republicans really cared about was another needless war to make the world safe for Zionism. When will we realize liberal democracy is merely the facade behind which Plutocracy rules? All are concerned, especially Rev. Huckabee, about the hypothetical genocide of Israel and yet turn a deaf ear to the ongoing genocide of whites in South Africa.

  10. “Your largest omission is not calling Megyn Kelly a bitch and that’s putting it nicely; the c-word is actually more fitting for her. Not that pretty either.” – Jim Giles

    LOL! Megyn Kelly was the primary reason I didn’t watch this so-called debate. The ten candidates on stage was the second reason.

    Much to do about nothing, I say.

    Of course, all eyes were on ‘The Donald’ and his anti-illegal immigration, anti-political correctness, anti-foreign trade rhetoric which is all well and good. After all, anything that overturns the Establishment’s applecart these days is positive news.

    But it is imperative to point out that Donald Trump is unlikely to have any significant impact on the fundamental political trajectory of the country given that he is 100% kosher-certified and completely in bed with the Jews.

    In fact, both his son and daughter are married to Jews!

    Daughter Ivanka Trump is married to New York Observer publisher Jared Kushner and younger brother Eric Trump tied the knot to Inside Edition’s Lara Yunaska.

    Regarding his daughter’s conversion to Judaism, ‘The Donald’ stated, “This wasn’t in the plan but I’m very glad it happened.”

    No doubt he’s glad it happened because it makes his life as a New York real estate developer that much easier. Ditto as a Presidential candidate.

    Speaking at The Algemeiner’s ‘Jewish 100? Gala in New York City, ‘The Donald’ told the audience, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever.”

    In the end, Donald Trump knows what side of the toast the butter is on . . . and you can bet the spread employed on the bread is 100%kosher certified!

  11. I never supported Ron Paul or Rand Paul and certainly not John McCain or Mitt Romney even when White ‘supremacists’ friends of mine did support Ron Paul especially.

    I don’t care about his Jewish connections. He’s too good not to support.

    Remember, I have a blue-tick nose.

  12. Jim Giles
    ‘I don’t care about his Jewish connections. He’s too good not to support.’

    The sad fact is that every candidate’s campaign staff is kosherised.

    Some more than others but they all know who pulls the major levers of power.

    Aside from trying to nuke Trump, Megyn Kelly’s demeanor seemed to be more appropriate for ‘Dancing with the Stars’ than a presidential debate.

  13. Jim,

    Nice to see you and your ‘blue-tick nose’ are still alive and functioning. So how has nigger-infested Mississippi been treating you these days?

    Although I share Hunter Wallace’s opinion regarding ‘The Donald’, I certainly don’t hold it against you or anyone else for supporting him.

    Despite his Jewish connections, which every candidate must have in order to run for the White House these days, he does appear to be a genuine loose cannon and certainly constitutes a breath of fresh air.

    And who knows, he just might be the vehicle to destroy the Republican Party once and for all! That possibility alone makes him vote-worthy in my book.

    However, I must point out that when it comes to his support of Israel, he’s just another frothing-at-the-mouth, mad-dog, war-mongering, Zionist, neoconservative lunatic.

    Do you really want that shit on your conscience?

  14. Speaking of ‘Mr. Giles instincts’ after reading this interesting debate, my instincts are to vote for Miss Hillary –

    As she is in a category by herself for owning the potential to help southern nationalism form and crystallize.
