How I became a Trump convert (PLUS: Putin brings back the KGB)

Faith GoldyArchive

We’re in the home stretch and the finish line is within sight. I needn’t tell you why it’s been one heck of a ride this campaign cycle. From criminal investigations to sex scandals and WikiLeaks, 2016’s race for the White House has been like none other. 

On a personal note though, this US election has been different insofar as it’s forced me to articulate and defend my positions on the two candidates to a brand new degree.

The vitriol from haters (on the left and right) left no margin for error on facts and rationale for supporting Donald Trump.

Tonight, I tell you how I became a Trump convert, and why I hope our southern neighbours choose to make America great again by putting America first again.

Then, Putin is resurrecting the KGB. According to the Russian daily “Kommersant,” a major new reshuffle of Russia’s security agencies is under way.

“Outlaw Conservative” and international security expert Alex Holstein joins me to break down what it means for Russia and the world.

Wow, Faith, That was the most informative 15 minute discussion I have ever seen that you had with Alex. I’m used to watching you talk about Canadian MP’s I never heard of before as I try to envision how that relates to the USA and it’s path to liberal nonsense.

But today, with your discussion with Alex Holstein… That was a masters level course in one segment.
“The worlds only secrete police state run by the secrete police”; whoa.
“There have only been two types of leaders: major bloody and minor bloody.”
How about how the KGB didn’t ever really care about communism, they only cared about their own culture. I’m going to have to watch this over and over again to get it all.

Bring Alex Holstein back. Tell Ezra to give him his own show.

Thank you

Ask any Canadian or any US citizen why they don’t support Trump and his policies and not one of them can give a rational answer . 100% of the time its either irrational or outright unsupported allegations that have never been substantiated with any real hard evidence. And those irrational reasons are very few. Now compare that with the myriad of factual reasons not to support Clinton and there is simply no comparison. The reason for this phenomenon is the dumbed down brainwashing of the Left Wing Mainstream Media all over North America. When well educated , otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals make irrational, unsubstantiated allegations against Trump that fly in the face of the values that they actually live by you have to know the brainwashing of the CBC, CTV and other MSM has been extremely effective.
Truth is the choice between a freedom loving American and a NWO Globalist is clear. If anyone cannot see that Trump is the salvation of the nation they need to be living in China, North Korea , Germany or Sweden, not North America.

Mary Ann, by 2012 it will be all over if Hillary gets in. I guess you’ll only understand if that happens. Read the signs.

Its funny we have to apologize for our Trump support, as though every other candidate that came before were Paul of Tarsus. I agree that Bush was a teddy bar, average country guy easily liked, and Trump is a grating New Yorker with a huge chip on his shoulder. Yes. So? I’m not inviting him to my son’s christening. Thomas Jefferson slept with his slaves. Kennedy slept with goodness knows how many women. Whatever Trump did wasn’t done while in service of the USA.

Right now I say it is 50-50. If Trump has the enthusiasm gap over Hillary that many say he wins. He could easily win 270 to 268 by taking New Hampshire; but he is weak in North Carolina, which he MUST take to win.

Mary Ann, it is game over if Trump loses. America is finished. Personally I would vote for a lobotomized monkey with an anxiety disorder over Hillary or any Democrat.

We need a new political party here in Canada or at least a raging bull of the right like Trump to go in and drain the swamp of Ottawa and Quebec, and end the influence of Quebec on the rest of Canada

If nothing else, the last few months have showed the so-called hollyweird elite are for sale to the highest bidder, this fact alone will break that hollyweird industry, as people will not forget…

It’s already too late, the Libs have literally stolen the election.
Already countless early ballets that when actual voters voted it went to the criminal, no matter who the vote was for.
No corruption there huh!
Bought and paid for folks.

Mary Ann said, “The world will not fall off a cliff if Clinton wins and you and others have another chance to make the case again in 2020 with a more deserving and intelligent candidate.”

If that is your best endorsement to vote for Clinton over Trump, then you are obviously not believing your own bs.

The choice between a criminal verses a guy who 20 years ago talked crass in a private conversation is obvious, choose the crass talking guy.

Voting for Clinton is voting a known criminal into office. If Clinton wins the election, the state of American moral degradation will be on display for the world to see.

Make American great again or vote in a criminal. It’s their choice.

Can’t wait to see what they do, and if Trump wins, I can’t wait to see what happens next. Will the childish socialist Hillary lovers start riots? Will there be an attempt to assassinate Trump?

The immature immoral socialist left do not take defeat like adults.

Any person that would support the psychopath Clinton has zero credibility in my world. In fact, I may have to put that person in the psychopath category as well. The world would/will never be the same with her/it as commander in chief.
For clarity’s sake, we in Canada have no say or input into who gets to be president.
commented 2016-11-04 02:22:29 -0400
Faith, you have just lost all credibility with me by making the statement that you are a Trump convert. The world will not fall off a cliff if Clinton wins and you and others have another chance to make the case again in 2020 with a more deserving and intelligent candidate. That is what democracy is all about. Accept defeat and do what you do best, by informing and influencing.

That anyone would be "on the fence’ regarding Trump makes me wonder about their comprehension of the world and what is going on.

I hope Donald wins the election and makes America great again. It might inspire Canada to clean up the weeds in its backyard, too.

I like Putin for some of the things he says. When the Olympic games were on and gays protested his stand on homosexuals, he said that no one would be picked up off the street for being gay, but he wanted them to leave the children alone, (leave out the propaganda). That sounded reasonable. Putin has also said recently that a society that can’t defend its children has no future. That was in reference to European countries letting Muslims in who then commit crimes. Somehow, it makes sense to me.

Russia, a police state ruled by the police.

Yes. I like some things Putin says, but I like what Donald Trump says better.

Americans first wow now you know why Trudeau dose not like President TRUMP.

- I was originally pulling for Cruz. When he lost (fare & square) to Trump, I started pulling for Trump. I know what the Clintons are all about. Since the Republican primaries Trump has grown into the part of President.

Excellent show as usual, Faith!
