WATCH: 4 reality TV strategies Trump is using to win

Rebel Staff

YouTube's popular Film Theorists channel normally devotes its high energy, labour-intensive videos to dissecting pop culture: "What's left of Gotham after Batman gets done 'saving' it?" "Here's how The Walking Dead will really end based on the evolving zombie makeup" and so on.

Their latest video analyses Donald Trump's presidential campaign and shows that, not surprisingly, the former host of The Apprentice has used time honoured "reality TV" game-play strategies to get this far.

BUT -- there's a twist at the end...

@ Rick

Actually there is a lot of talk about Trump and his security – he is a definite target

In my opinion the only reason obama was not killed was because of his colour.

They were afraid of the riots that would ensue.

Who would want Trump dead?

1. His own party.

2. All the Clinton gang.

3. The Democrats.

4. The POS in the White House

5. The islamics.

6. Every special interest group he intends to target.

And many, many more……………

However – in my opinion hussein obama would love to incite an incident that would allow martial law to be declared and the elections stopped or delayed.

That POS has already fired hundreds of senior military officers who declared they would not fire on their own people. Lots about it on the net.

From now until the election it is going to get very difficult for the Trump security team – you can be damned confident they have discussed all of the above potentials and even more.

While the security after the election will be higher than normal, before the election would be the best time to hit him – it would allow hussein obama to tale over.

There is no doubt in my mind there will be some sort of accident or attempt on him.

And you can be sure his team is aware as well – and being as proactive as they can to protect their principal.

The best defense to this?

Be completely unpredictable – in EVERY manner. And be ready and plan and much more that need not be discussed here.

Perhaps that is why he missed a few events or changed locations – we will never know – but you can be certain his team will knows and they probably are quite hard on him at times.

I am for the man – I hope Trump wins – but it is far more than just an election for him – it is also a matter of who makes it to the finish line.

Be happy.

Here is an article from a US pundit I was sent. A bit of a read, however, interesting!

Donald Trump by Bill Bennet

Interesting take on Donald Trump and today’s political system. Former U. S.
Secretary of Education, William J. Bennett’s frankly candid and shocking
observations of Donald Trump’s impact on the behavior of the entrenched
Washington D. C. bureaucrats in both parties — and the risk The Donald
faces in so doing.

William J. Bennett, Host of Bill Bennett’s Morning in America Show, is one
of America’s most important, influential, and respected voices on
cultural, political, and education issues. He has one of the strongest
Christian world views of any writer in modern times.

What I See Happening In a Trump Presidency

By Bill Bennett

They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a
Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.

Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very
nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and
Jon Corzine, to name just a few.

It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and
big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this
partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another.
It’s one for all and all for one.

It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich,
everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies.
But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony
capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians
of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has
been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened
and frightened.

Donald Trump can self-fund. No matter how much they say to the contrary,
the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke.
He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart. It’s no
coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. It’s
because most of the other politicians are part of the good old boys club.
They talk big, but they won’t change a thing. They are all beholden to
big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers,
gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations – like
Big Pharmacy or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by
foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary
and their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by
big money. But there’s one man who isn’t beholden to anyone There’s one man
who doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or
the United Auto Workers, or the teacher’s union, or the Service Employees
International Union, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help.
That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the
corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched
interests. That makes Trump a huge threat to those people. Trump can ruin
everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t
you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never
actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse
strings, yet has never tried to de-fund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly
illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It
defies logic, right?

First, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe
many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having
affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security
Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even
knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank
account. The NSA, the SEC, the IRS, and all the other three-letter
government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They
surveil everything. Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called
racists, so they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes,
let alone demand his impeachment. Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat
or retirement, if you’re a good old boy, you’ve got a $5 million-per-year
lobbying job waiting. The big-money interests have the system gamed. Win or
lose, they win.

But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice,
cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business. All
the rules are out the window if Trump wins the Presidency. The other
politicians will protect Obama and his aides but not Trump. Remember: Trump
is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He questioned
Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League
university. Now, he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do.
He’s questioning our relationship with Mexico; he’s questioning why the
border is wide open; he’s questioning why no wall has been built across the
border; he’s questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into
America is in our best interests; he’s questioning why so many illegal
aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and he’s questioning
why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the
short end of the stick. Good question! I’m certain Trump will question what
happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to
college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the
defective Obamacare website. By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion.
Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for
selling it by lying. Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS
conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records. Trump will prosecute
Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the
election. How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor
Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report
before the 2012 election?

Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop Trump.
They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked, telling
the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump
could wake a sleeping giant. Trump’s election would be a nightmare. Obama
has committed many crimes. No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute.
He will not hesitate. Once Trump gets in and gets a look at the cooked
books and Obama’s records, the game is over. The jig is up. The goose is
cooked. Holder could wind up in prison. Jarrett could wind up in prison.
Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of
customer money. Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or
for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or
for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying
about Benghazi. The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up
in prison.

Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled. Obama himself could wind up
ruined, his legacy in tatters. Trump will investigate. Trump will
prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved. That’s why the dogs of
hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

Yes, it’s become open season on Donald Trump. The left and the right are
determined to attack his policies, harm his businesses, and, if possible,
even keep him out of the coming debates. But they can’t silence him. And
they sure can’t intimidate him. The more they try, the more the public will
realize that he’s the one telling the truth.

To the Rebel Staff:

In fact the truth behind his strong showing is multi-fold.

He is a successful businessmen who knows what it is like to go broke and fight back.

The voter in the US of A is PO’d at no one listening to them.

The people are saying the same thing at their kitchen table that Trump is saying publicly.

He has stood up to media and people love him for that.

In fact Fox News has taken several kicks to the nuts and people like that – because no one at the kitchen table has the power to do that – and the media has literally run the American people for years – the people hate the media as they have come to learn the media lies. Always!!!!!!!!! Lies!!!!!!!!!

He is not afraid to “show up” – like the day he walked in on Beck at one of his rallies – one of Trumps largest detractors. Beck folded and left.

He has outlined some serious initiatives that he claims he will do – wall between US of A and Mexico (Canada is getting mention now as well due to our selfie boy), stopping islamic immigration until it is all figured out – which means stopping it, rounding up illegals and especially criminal illegals, and more…………..

No one was even touching those topics in the other competitor camps until Trump started saying it – out loud, out clear and with no “panting breathless mannerisms” – meaning he is saying what he means and he means what he says. He is using “plain speak” and not selfie boy/johnny boy speak. People love that.

Lots more – but in the end lots of folks will do their best to detract from his “in your face” approach – and “explain it” all to us idiots – which I find rather condescending – but they are the windy media and voters are the ignorant peons.

I personally find Trumps way of speaking to be refreshing in this day and age.

He is NOT establishment.

He is NOT beholden to political big wigs.

He scares the establishment.

He cannot be bought.

What is not to respect about a man like this.

And he has a sense of decency – having done a few – very quiet – good turns for people.

I would love to see the selfie boy try to argue a point with him.

Lots more but I think you folks get my drift.

So Rebel Staff – we do not agree on this one – but in the end if I were American I would vote for him hands down. Ask me in four years if I would do it again?

Who knows?

But right now Trump does one thing that NONE of the others does.

He gives the American voter HOPE!!

Anyways – best to all.

This TV Zombies is so full of reality TV fecal matter his social/cultural cognition is flush worthy.

The reason Trump’s popularity continues to grow exponentially has nothing to do with TV-land presentation, it has to do with WHAT he represents – he is an outsider – unconnected with the established political power elite or party oligarchy.

Trump has tapped into a massive organic shift in electoral trust. The electorate that both old-line party oligarchs have relied on have rejected status quo party politics and want someone independent of that system to take out the trash in Washington.

Voters on all ends of the political spectrum have one common ground in this election -they are disgusted how government is working and they have no trust in either old-line party to change it.

Trump is riding a populist reform wave right into the oval office.
