Chuck Baldwin: The Trump Victory

Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party’s 2008 presidential nominee, posted the following on his blog Chuck Baldwin Live in reaction to the election of Donald Trump.

Let’s be honest: we saw a historic election Tuesday night. The only election coming close to the stunning proportions of this election was Ronald Reagan’s first election in 1980. And even that one didn’t match Trump’s victory. Yes, it was a stunning victory for Donald Trump.

Let’s be clear about what we witnessed. In one presidential election, we saw a man completely demolish the neocon and neolib establishments of both major parties; the media establishment; the globalist establishment; Wall Street; the political machine of an incumbent President; and the Clinton/Bush political/criminal empires. The odds of ANYONE being able to overcome the combined wealth and power of the leviathans above was absolutely zero. Each one of the listed cabals has enough power to destroy any would-be challenger. That Donald Trump was able to beat them all was truly incredible–maybe even miraculous. And he not only beat them; he trounced them.

Over the years, Ross Perot, Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul had done the preliminary work of loading the bases for Trump. These men helped awaken the sleeping giant that roared to life Tuesday night. But it was Donald Trump who knocked the ball clean out of the park. And he did it as an outside slugger in the opposition’s home park–a park in which the owners, officials, and gatekeepers had rigged the game to insure he would strike out. To their shock and dismay, he didn’t.

Make no mistake about it: the globalists, neocons, neolibs, international bankers, national media, and power establishment in both major parties are scrambling now to figure out how they were beaten and what they must do to try to reclaim the sudden loss of their power and influence.

Donald Trump might have delayed the total destruction of our freedoms–at least for awhile. We’ll see.

It would certainly appear that the Clinton/Bush Crime Family has been dealt a serious, if not fatal, blow. In one presidential campaign, Donald Trump sent Jeb Bush to the showers and sent Bill and Hillary packing (maybe for another country in order to try to stay out of a U.S. prison). I suggest that the Clintons consider Qatar. It is a country that successfully purchased much influence in Bill’s presidential administration and Hillary’s Secretary of State’s office, and it is also a country that does not participate in U.S. extradition policy.

I tell you the truth, breaking up the Bush/Clinton Crime Family and perhaps ridding the United States of their death grip on U.S. politics might be the GREATEST success of Trump’s victory Tuesday night. The swamp was drained a lot just by getting rid of the Clintons (forever)–and maybe the Bushes too (at least for quite a while).

And forgive me for gloating just a bit. Over a year and a half ago, on April 14, 2015, I made this bold prediction on my Facebook page: “You heard it here first: Hillary Clinton will NOT be our next President.”

    Baldwin sure does use a lot of words to say nothing.

    What’s historic about a rich, old white guy getting elected president?

    He’s the first person elected president who had not previously held elected office, been a cabinet secretary, or a General.

  4. Andy Andy November 13, 2016

    William, you are upsetting the “Shiny Badge Caucus” by pointing that out.

    What’s historic about a rich, old white guy getting elected president?

    Nothing, if you see everything through the lens of identity politics.

    Seriously, whether you like Trump or not (and I certainly don’t), it is indisputable that he broke just about every “unwritten rule” for being elected POTUS.

  6. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi November 14, 2016

    Andy, who is this Shiney Badge Caucus, and if they exist, why would a fact upset them?

    If the Ls fielded a Trump like character with near 100% recognition, that might be interesting, if s/he were not a hater.

    The Shiny Badge Caucus are so called Libertarians who think that the Libertarian Party should nominate candidates based on the candidates having fancy credentials/titles next to their names, even if it means they are not really very libertarian, if they are libertarian at all.

    The term “Shiny Badge” is a reference to people who worship the police because they have shiny badges (which make them “authority figures”).

    “The term “Shiny Badge” is a reference to people who worship the police because they have shiny badges (which make them “authority figures”).”

    Such as Donald Trump, for example.

    And while I am not a “Shiny Badge” libertarian, I would guess that if I was, a billionaire celebrity and CEO of a business with tens of thousands of employees would merit a “badge”…no?

  9. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi November 14, 2016

    AJ, I get the idea. But you didn’t answer my question.

  10. Andy Andy November 14, 2016

    Donald Trump has never held elected office, so he is missing this “Shiny Badge” which is so important to the Shiny Badge Caucus.

  11. Matt Matt November 14, 2016

    “Donald Trump has never held elected office, so he is missing this “Shiny Badge” which is so important to the Shiny Badge Caucus.”

    No, he has other shiny badges though: billionaire, celebrity, CEO of a large company. You missed the point that “shiny badgers” would consider those to be shiny badges as well. Go ahead, ask them.

    The other shiny badge definition you yourself provided, someone who worships the authority of the police, also happens to describe Trump.

    It is true, of course, that Trump has never held office or served in the military. As a CEO he is used to ruling dictatorially, not to the messy compromises of a democratic republic. And, indeed he has expressed admiration for dictators.

  12. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi November 14, 2016

    Agreed with Matt. DJT has a different sort of Shiney badge.

  13. Matt Matt November 15, 2016

    How do I dislike it? Although, really, dislike is not nearly strong enough.
