Conspiracy theories abound regarding Donald Trump’s next step: will he go back to his very profitable business empire? After all, flying around the world on his own 757 private jet to “check-in” on his golf resorts, massive commercial real estate investments, or dropping in on his new “buddy” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sound enticing for a billionaire who happens to wear the badge of “Trump-45.” After all, what does a Septuagenarian with all of President Trump’s accomplishments do to top any of the mountains he’s already eclipsed?
“He’s going to start a new political party!” That story ramped up shortly after it became apparent that the vote count — be it accurate or not — determined that Trump would NOT repeat in the White House. And it’s only climbed steadily since the Biden inauguration. A political group that filed with the Federal Election Commission to gain status for the 2022 election and beyond floated the “word” that Trump was a part of their organization and planned on running for office in 2024 as the leader of the “Patriot Party.”
Speculation about “The Donald’s” next foray into whatever remains at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to know what he’s going to do. And many are anxious — even worried — about Trump’s intentions.
It’s no secret that the GOP establishment despises him. But he’s the perfect foil for the former conservative party that has banished itself to be better known as the “Party of eternal maintenance of the Status Quo.” The RINOs in the GOP have snatched control of conservatism’s ideology and bastardized it into something it never was.
Conservatism formerly espoused a small group of ideas that each embraced the philosophy that government is NOT the answer for the People and all that they need from so-called “public servants.” According to true conservatives, government IS the enemy of the People — specifically “BIG” government. And true conservatives continually fight to keep government small, protect the populace from the greed and lust for power and money that many in government war to obtain and keep while pushing constantly to wrestle any power held by the government from its grasp to return to the People. Lower taxes, true free-market capitalism, freedom of speech, religion, and the right to “keep and bear arms” are the cornerstones of Conservatism. Status quo Government seeks to strip them all away from Americans so that Big Brother controls everything and everybody.
Today’s Republican Party looks NOTHING like Conservative Originalism.
What Will Trump Do Next?
Every Trump supporter knows perfectly well where Donald Trump’s heart lies: he gave it to the American people when he chose to run to be their President. His multiple promises while campaigning were fulfilled by his achievements of most of what he promised! Americans had NEVER seen that from any previous U.S. president. He did not get them all done, but only because legislative and court roadblocks prevented his doing so. His achievements of many and efforts to get them all ingratiated him to the American people. Make America Great Again swept the nation — and even showed up in multiple foreign countries! It appeared that Trump Populism had found a home, had strong backing from a conservative political party (at least in part), and showed the nation just how successful it could become with leadership that truly was “of, by, and for the people.”
Democrats and RINOs were (and are) horrified. Trump threw mud in their faces, showed all Americans how the Establishment lied perpetually for decades while forcing Americans to toe the line to keep political parties balanced. They did that to maintain perpetual political power that would quietly (and stealthily) rule the nation in perpetuity. In doing so, Swamp critters enriched themselves and their fellow swamp dwellers while keeping any detractors from messing up their deal. And they kept the American public oblivious of how good it “should have been” and “would have been” if our government truly worked exclusively for the good of the Nation.
The Swamp won the battle, but the War is still raging.
As we see it, Trump has several options that each seem enticing. Climbing back aboard the company jet and heading around the globe doesn’t seem likely. He’s “been there-done that.” And for those who are not cut from the cloth of entrepreneurship, you cannot understand how a Trump-like businessman thinks: “I accomplished that dream, now what’s next!” There’s where Donald Trump is living.
Regarding politics: he’s been President of the United States! What greater achievement than that could any politician complete? There are Biblical prophets, MAGA Americans, politicians, and even hardcore Democrats who are certain Trump wants to run for a second White House term in 2024. After all, why else would Democrats and other hard-left political hacks spend all their time trying to guarantee Trump CANNOT run again for president? They are terrified!
But for this journalist, I’m not certain Trump WILL run again. However, at this stage, I cannot say positively that he will NOT run. I’m leaning toward another option — one that would appeal to a Donald Trump who’s already slept about 1200 nights in the White House. He gave us a glimpse of what that might be in a missive he sent to the World on Tuesday.
Read his note below with a clear mind. We’ll regroup and discuss what I think he’s going to do:
The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political “leaders” like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality, has rapidly driven him from Majority Leader to Minority Leader, and it will only get worse. The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle—they’ve never had it so good—and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s Beltway First agenda or Biden’s America Last.
In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting President in history, almost 75,000,000. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Nancy Pelosi her job. Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of the 98 partisan legislative chambers, and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue. And in “Mitch’s Senate,” over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone—and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600. How does that work? It became the Democrats’ principal advertisement, and a big winner for them it was. McConnell then put himself, one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, into the advertisements. Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race.
It was a complete election disaster in Georgia, and certain other swing states. McConnell did nothing, and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system into the future. He doesn’t have what it takes, never did, and never will.
My only regret is that McConnell “begged” for my strong support and endorsement before the great people of Kentucky in the 2020 election, and I gave it to him. He went from one point down to 20 points up, and won. How quickly he forgets. Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost, and lost badly. Now, his numbers are lower than ever before, he is destroying the Republican side of the Senate, and in so doing, seriously hurting our Country.
Likewise, McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings. He does nothing on this tremendous economic and military threat.
Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.
Prior to the pandemic, we produced the greatest economy and jobs numbers in the history of our Country, and likewise, our economic recovery after Covid was the best in the world. We cut taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our Vets, became energy independent, built the wall and stopped the massive inflow of illegals into our Country, and so much more. And now, illegals are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up, and we will no longer be energy independent.
This is a big moment for our country, and we cannot let it pass by using third rate “leaders” to dictate our future!
(Note: Donald Trump really doesn’t care for Mitch McConnell!)
Everything Trump said during his first campaign and as President, speaking to Americans from the White House or a podium in his plethora of MAGA rallies, spoke directly to the average American. He loves the People and despises those in government who seek self-enrichment at the expense of average Americans. He hates that abuse of political power and petty partisanship — by both Democrats AND Republicans.
Many think because of that, he will walk away. After all, there are not many people who can say, “I was President of the United States.”
Donald Trump is not finished yet!
In his letter to Americans above, he hinted what his next task would be — either in part or in total. He plans on fighting the Swamp again! It’s unclear exactly what form that will take, but it will certainly include his being on the campaign trail in 2022 during the midterms and also in the run-up to the general election in 2024.
What better way could Trump, under the present circumstances in his life, serve Americans than to use his accomplishments, achievements, and numerous victories for the People against the Swamp and the Deep State status quo!
Imagine him campaigning for a true conservative in a rural congressional district in Nevada or Idaho, Iowa, or Oklahoma? What about some television ads in which HE introduces an unknown young political upstart woman who embraces the American Dream and wants to share it with the large Latin population in New Mexico as their next governor?
The beautiful thing about congressional races is that all House members must face the public every two years in an election. Doing so is tough on the candidates’ time and, of course, their wallets. Imagine Donald Trump stumping in his nonstop magnetic fashion three or four nights a week around the country to help flip control in the House while adding even more conservative governors.
The Political Class call such a person a “King Maker.” I don’t know about Trump making anyone a king, but he certainly could “ring the bell” for several hundred angry — but determined — conservatives to help take his populist methods and ideology across the nation while shining the light of truth on the Establishment Swamp Dwellers that hold a death grip on our freedoms.
I’ll finish by saying this: Donald Trump is already certain to stump during the next four years for candidates in this war against the Left. I’m confident he could easily do that and march toward 2024 and his second stint in the White House all at the same time!
I’m looking forward to it, no matter how it looks.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see him dominate the 24/7 news cycle for four more years!
