How Did Trump Win? It’s not the economy:
It’s the 67%–Stupid.
I always had to laugh when orthodox prognosticators would waffle about what was “Trump’s ceiling”. Could he ever break the 30% ceiling? The funny thing is that I know at least three people who knew the precise answer and that the proof of that answer is now about to be revealed in the real world.
First off, we predicted Trump would be the nominee last August (2015). Just watching CNN prognosticators trying to explain Trump’s rise—“the people are angry”, “they feel betrayed by the GOP”.
No shit Sherlock—but is this the extent of your analysis? This is just so silly, yes of course they are angry etc. –but what has caused this anger?
They feel betrayed, but by what? They feel betrayed by the fact that the GOP stopped just short of defaulting on America’s debt. That is how stupid they are. They are angry because Muslims, Ebola Victims, etc. have been allowed into the Country. That is how bigoted they are. GOP leaders except for Trump prefer to hide their bigotry. Yes of course the base is angry–but just tell the truth already–they are angry because they have become a bunch of mindless bigots. What did Einstein say about repeating the same mistake again and again (reelecting a congress with an 11% approval rating), expecting a different result? Or how about the fact that the American “working class” are the only working class voting for a right wing party–well not since fascist Germany’s other rabble rousing pitch fork wielding tribalists who never ended up being good for “the people”. How did they become mindless bigots? How can I prove that 67% of them are mindless bigots?
I will prove it.
Well the GOP and it’s sponsors have created a Frankenstein that is running amok. Every time the media dodges this reality they are enabling this Frankenstein. With Trump as the nominee, this Frankenstein has nowhere to hide. Now they have us precisely where they want us (precisely where I knew that they would be). But make no mistake, we are in a very dangerous place.
Three people have known the answer since way before the question was ever asked and three people have predicated their whole essence to utilizing the answer for promoting their own agenda. The answer was always mind-bogglingly easy–hiding in plain sight. Now the beautiful thing is that the answer can hide no more.
Once you knew the answer–you could easily see the outcome. The three people who always knew the answer are Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Myself. I can prove that I knew –since I wrote about it with great clarity two years ago.
Ted Cruz is the most reviled human being in the USA, loathed by virtually all of his Senate colleagues, no apparent friends–just looking at him makes many people want to throw up and with good reason. Yet if it had not been for Trump’s carefully crafted shenanigans, Cruz would have been the nominee. Cruz is (if nothing else) a very crafty fellow.
Why would he have won?
Because Cruz knew the secret, the secret that no one will admit to. Have you asked yourself why Cruz was willing to destroy the US economy (by defaulting on the US debt), or why he made no effort to help anyone in the Senate? Why was Cruz willing to sell his soul by on the one hand pretending to pray at the altar of Jesus every day, whilst in reality acting as the polar opposite of everything Jesus stood for. What did Cruz know–what made him just know that he had the correct strategy?
Now look at Trump. We all know that Trump is no true conservative. He knew.
They both knew that to secure the GOP nomination, whoever was the most bigoted, vile and absurd was bound to attract the 67%, the 67% of the GOP base that fit a certain profile.
The moment any person tried to be reasonable–adios amigo. I saw that in 2012, Obama, when he was elected, was only concerned about one person getting in his way to getting a second term. There was one thoughtful, intelligent, decent potential rival. Knowing this, Obama made him Ambassador to China–but John Huntsman resigned early to come back and try and become President. He was the only GOP candidate who never had his moment in the sun. He could never poll more than around 2% of the GOP base. Why was that? Because Huntsman was the one thoughtful, intelligent and decent contender, the one candidate who refused to stoop and pander to the base.
So how do I know the answer: How do I know how bad the 67% are. It is hardly difficult –you can find the proof here. But I will also provide a sample…
Let me make something quite clear—if you are a “birther” you are either extremely ignorant or a racist. By promoting birtherism you become a racist. Trump is a racist. You want proof? Well I found it. This is what I had written:
More recently Donald Trump’s epic nonquest (sending teams of investigators to Hawaii), while simply seeking the limelight, highlights the total nonsense that passes as discourse. Various journalists have caught him on so much nonsense. While being interviewed on CNN, when Trump cited a (mis)quote from the president’s grandmother that said Obama was born in Kenya. In fact, the recording to which he refers shows Sarah Obama repeatedly saying through a translator, “He was born in America.” You can listen to the actual tape yourself—something that this sorry excuse for a . . . (controlling myself) . . . clearly refused to do.
CNN pointed out that they had the actual tape, with the correct translation. Donald Trump refused to listen, had zero interest in the facts, and just ploughed on spewing his bile. But Stupidparty Disciples don’t care.
This is what I wrote about the 67% two year ago
No, the ignorance I am referring to is far more insidious. This ignorance threatens my future, the future of my family, my friends, my compatriots, humanity, and the planet. The ignorance I am referring to is coming from the most politically active voters, the most reliable voters—who simply do not have the foggiest idea about the issues they are voting on—for example, the root cause of the debt. As long as the Republican Party keeps having even moderate success at the polls, these voters’ minds will not change, they will not be enlightened. For reasons that this book will explain, such ignorance is not necessarily even their fault, as this ignorance is carefully nourished by the special interests that presently control the democratic process in the hopes of Asset Stripping every resource for their own personal myopic self-interest.
Obviously, approximately 1/3 of Republican voters do have a perfectly reasonable grasp on reality. Like myself, they accept that the planet is more than 5,000 years old, that Iraq was not behind 9/11; they accept that bigotry is unproductive and usually caused by ignorance, and they prefer facts to myth. But they still vote Republican. Do they do this out of habit or bitterness or selfishness, misplaced religious beliefs? Perhaps they are simply too busy to stop and take note of what is happening under their noses and perhaps deep down some might be covertly somewhat bigoted in one or more of the numerous categories of bigotry that the old Republican Party would certainly never have allowed to take center stage…
This fringe has taken over. By voting Republican Party, you have empowered the extremists; also, you have not forced America to take responsibility for its disastrous energy policy, its absurd healthcare model, for the illegal war in Iraq.
I will argue that you (GOP Voters) have empowered the extremists into actually successfully selling the idea that greed is good and successfully selling the idea that the ever-increasing income-discrepancy issue, leading to more poverty, should be not only tolerated but encouraged in a country that had always prided itself in being a force for good. Would the end of the American Dream be on your watch?
I have just one question for Stupidparty Disciples. If America were no longer a place you could tolerate, what country would you move to? What country could you tolerate? What country could tolerate you?
Two-thirds of Stupidparty Disciples are temporarily lost, and nothing that can be said can penetrate these skulls—for unless the information comes from Fox News or the much-admired “hate radio” programs/talk shows—or unless it comes from Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Hannity, some paramilitary nut case author, or even worse from one of the faux Christian leaders discussed (in the book)—these 67% are not at this moment open to listening (not to factual political news). It would seem that this 67% live in an information bubble induced by carefully sponsored paranoia. We have a large segment of society that are hiding in their caves.
I even had prescient words for the “Bernie or Bust” crowd–all though it was originally aimed at the 33% of GOP voters still capable of critical thinking:
Blaming both sides is just wrong, not only on the facts of the matter but also strategically. Blaming both sides is the same as saying, “Let’s keep the status quo”—because by simply and incorrectly blaming both sides to an equal degree, you will end up with the status quo, which is actually the definition of being a conservative. By unreflectively blaming both sides to an equal degree , you are being conservative, and at present that means you are Stupidparty. By blaming both sides, you are in effect playing a game of chess, each player left with their king and not much else, which would be a stalemate other than for the fact that you have a spare pawn and are too set in your ways to realize that this pawn can be converted into a queen. You do not have to be stuck in that stale rut of always being The King of your intellectual domain. Let your mind travel: you could become a Queen for a day—and you might even have some fun, as it is the journey not the destination that adds color to our otherwise preprogrammed actions.
Since this was written I have actually put the nail into the coffin of the false equivalence crowd by research that show the GOP lies are 1,000% more voluminous than Democrat lies.
So the day of the Trump has arrived and from this day forth it will be easy to look people straight in the eye and see what they are really made of. The day of the Trump—the dream Klandidate. It is a high stakes game, but I could not be happier—I have just about had it with feeble minded bigoted morons having a place to hide. This summer the sun will shine and no one will be able to escape its searing glare.
Here’s a thought, every one who has rationalized voting for the GOP in 2004 and thereafter is guilty of the grossest form of negligence. I say this because by 2004 it should have been obvious even to blithering idiots that the the country had been mislead into the Iraq war, making it an illegal war, making it a war crime -before we even get to riding roughshod over the Geneva convention. This grossest negligence has lead us to Trump. Every single person involved in this crime is responsible for Trump and mental midget ideas like this:
Oh -I am not done yet… far from it. It is time to take a closer look at the Trumpeteers

Spot On, couldn’t have been more accurate !!
No, it won’t be status quo ……Cause a lot of people don’t give a f#24 about either party…..there is no mention of who you think will remedy the situation , if you think it’s Clinton , she’s worse then Trump….There are actually Independent thinkers out here that don’t care about either party and want an actual human from this earth to lead…..Bernie Sanders …….The media and the powers to be still don’t get it……but , eventually , you will…..Whoever, you think you are…….
Patrick Andendall says
No sorry you do not have the right to your vacuous and dangerously stupid false equivalence. Only a mental midget gets away with saying both parties are the same -because such stupidity is literally deadly. You mental lethargy will make you personally liable for Global Warming, Pro lifer deathers, religious fundamentalism, trickle down economics, defunding planned parenthood, the next Supreme Court Justice, more voter suppression, more War, scrapping Obamacare, less financial regulation, more bigotry, more guns, more incarceration: By your ignorance, by your refusal to read intelligent content -you become criminally negligent, leading to manslaughter. No—you can begin your redemption by understanding false equivalence… https://stupidpartyland.com/1/post/2015/12/to-those-who-say-a-pox-on-both-your-houses-i-say-a-pox-on-you.html read or die in ignominy. Finally I do explain how to solve the situation -all you have to ask yourself which party is closer to these solutions. Now get to work and use the brain that God gave you. https://stupidpartyland.com/support-the-smartparty-agenda
Thank you, Patrick! So tired of equally ignorant (though hopefully less stupid) Democrats who believe all Bernie would have to do, if he miraculously could get a majority of voters to vote for an extremist in either party, is wave his magic wand and everything would be free! Stop looking for handouts and Utopia and do your research. Use your brain instead of bumper sticker chants! No candidate is perfect but Hillary is the most intelligent and experienced Presidential candidate in my lifetime and she voted the same as Bernie 92 or 93% of the time. They have the same values, but she has shown she knows how to compromise to get the best deal. Btw, I appreciate all your research and evidence. I will be sharing it.
Patrick Andendall says
I feel we are in for more of the chameleon, and his stance on what ever fits the moment to keep his followers nibbling on the carrot !
I have no doubt and look forward to more of Andendall research and future commentry on the race for the Whitehouse which is at risk, like no other time, in the history of America!
Please explain to me how mental lethargy can make someone personally liable for all of the things you listed below. Do you understand what that means? I don’t think you do. Here’s a quick explanation of legal liability: if you can explain yourself based the definition of legal liability, I won’t call you a complete fucking moron. But since it’s impossible to do that, I hate to say this but, you’re a fucking moron.
“You mental lethargy will make you personally liable for Global Warming, Pro lifer deathers, religious fundamentalism, trickle down economics, defunding planned parenthood, the next Supreme Court Justice, more voter suppression, more War, scrapping Obamacare, less financial regulation, more bigotry, more guns, more incarceration: By your ignorance, by your refusal to read intelligent content -you become criminally negligent, leading to manslaughter. No—you can begin your redemption by understanding false equivalence…
Patrick Andendall says
The term “mental lethargy” was used within the specific context of the target group I was discussing. So now you choose to parse words, and words taken out of context. So I guess you are guilty as charged of being a mindless bigot (because that was the context) and it is good that we have clarified that. In a way that means that my job is done. But you are right – there is no actual “general” law against mindless bigotry (deh! -no shit Sherlock)- just a spiritual law against being an existential threat to mankind.
So although you will never go to jail for exercising your right to be a total asshole (saving inciting hate etc) -rest assured that if there is such thing as hell, that that is where you are headed. Can I back that up with Church doctrine? – oh absolutely…as the Pope has emphasized. “When we exploit Creation, we destroy the sign of God’s love for us. In destroying Creation, we are saying to God, `I don’t like it! This is not good!’ `So what do you like?’ `I like myself!’ Here, this is sin. Do you see?”
If you vote for stuff that promotes death – you have blood on your hands.The Criminal justice system might not be equipped with the ability to secure justice – so that leaves your deathbed conscience and any notion of an after life, that will deal with your sins against mankind. Good luck with that. Of course you might be a sociopath, in which case all efforts to encourage you to be decent human being would be like water off a Ducks back.
So Hell it is for you, -yes because you are “criminally” negligent -because if there is a God -there would be law against your myopic, and deadly world view.
You will use your brain instead of bumper sticker chants…
Nice Post …
Thanks for Sharing…
I appreciate that all your research and evidence.
I will sharing it….
