Aloha, Cruz and Rubio: Trump kills in Mississippi, Michigan and Hawaii primaries

Mitch WolfeRebel Blogger

Notwithstanding a full week of attacks from his rivals, and notwithstanding over $38 million worth of attack ads leveled against him, The Donald scored a huge win in Mississippi.

He also crushed Kasich, Cruz and Rubio in Michigan, America’s blue collar heartland. Then in the early morning, he also won in Obama’s supposed American birthplace, Hawaii. “Book em, Donald!”

In Mississippi, Trump beat Cruz among evangelicals (that’s Cruz’s firewall) and among those GOP voters who are anti-government, the latter by a two-to-one margin. In Michigan, Trump destroyed Kasich, his nearest opponent, and won the vast support of both men and women, GOP and Democrats, who have lost their jobs due to globalization and international trade deals.

In other words, the Reagan Democrats -- those Democrats who crossed party lines to vote in Republican Ronald Reagan -- are coming back to the GOP fold for the first time in decades, due to Donald Trump railing against free trade deals.

And folks, this is one of the major reasons for Trump’s unbelievable success to date. On every campaign stop, Trump has been hammering against free trade.

Contrary to the ignorant pundits in the mainstream media, Trump is winning, not because he is appealing to the base instincts of the American electorate. He is winning because he understands and is articulating the anger of millions of white and black Americans, who have lost their jobs and their homes to unfair international trade deals, which they believe have closed American factories and exported these jobs out of the United States.

Trump is winning on substance -- on the economy and the economic injustice that a majority of Americans are experiencing.

Trump is also killing it in the media. He truly enjoys the spotlight and he is loving this campaign. And the more his critics attack him and blow millions of dollars in negative ads, the stronger he gets.

CNN analyst Van Jones has compared Trump to an X-Man villain, Sebastian Shaw: The harder you hit that character, the stronger he becomes.

In response to that political buffoon, Mittens Romney, questioning Trump’s business acumen, Trump flipped the proverbial finger at all his detractors. Trump taunted them by holding his election night victory news conference at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida -- and catered it with Trump Wines, Trump Water and Trump Steaks.

Pure media genius!

Frankly Andrew I don’t even know what Trump believes on trade as it is all talking points and no detail. I agree with Americans who are against unfair trade, which describes the situation with China. For a weird reason though Trump has mentioned Japan a couple of times. Japan is an old story Trump, and in shambles. So I don’t know what the hell his insanity is all about.

I would have thought the Rebel would have been pro-free trade. What Trump is proposing, red tape and nanny statist meddling in private business and free market forces, is actually extremely left wing. It’s so left wing that even Canadian left wing parties don’t touch it.

Trump’s brands, like the steaks for one example, went bankrupt. The guy is a con man as Rubio says.

What I am anticipating is the “fireworks” show between Emperor Justpoleon and the “Trumpeter” when Mr. Trump wins the presidency! It should make for spectacular viewing!

One thing Trump has going is his brand. His hotels and golf courses a beautiful. His clothing line is in the stores. He flys around in his own Trump jet, not one supplied by the taxpayers. Brand recognition gives him a big advantage.

However, according to this mornings BBC, Trump only has 99 more delegates than Cruz. So it is still a long haul unless Trump can start sweeping the primaries; or start winning the all or nothing primaries. He does have the perception of being the clear front runner though, and that will probably carry him.

It is great that the two outsiders have pushed the establishment to the side.

Too bad Sanders couldn’t do the same to “Four American Lives Don’t Matter” Clinton and the Democratic establishment.

Meanwhile, in Canada, we are going to have electoral “reform” that entrenches the Laurentian establishment rammed down our throats.
