The first interview of the US president where he’s treated like a human being

 

A guy called Dave does his first interview ever, with another guy called Donald Trump.

Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports achieves something none of the Pullitzer prize winners have.

What are the odds the ABC would play this?

“It’s the retweets that get you in trouble.”

Dave wonders if Trump regrets winning because he was living the dream — he had a great life.

“The best day in my life in terms of business and life and everything was the day before I announced I was running for president,” Trump said. “Everything was good…Now I’m really glad I did but I was treated very unfairly.”

Trump recalled a time soon after announcing his presidential bid when he was publicly booed, saying he had “never been booed before”.

“[Before that] I had a popularity rate … I was close to 100 percent popular.” -- The U.S. Sun

How much does he want to win in 2020? A billionaire could walk away and holiday for the rest of his life.

As for “delaying the election???” — Surely it’s bait. He wants people to talk about mail in voter fraud, or perhaps not talk about other news.

    I would vote for him if I could.
    His second term would be really be interesting as he cleans up on the corruption as now he has this experience and knowledge of how this system works and who to go after.

    “As for “delaying the election???” — Surely it’s bait. He wants people to talk . . .”

    Very good point. A few, but not many, have realized he often does these sorts of statements. Sort of chess strategy versus those that are playing tic-tac-toe.
    Besides, he has no authority in this area. The US Constitution (Amd-XX) says: “The terms of the President and the Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, . . .”
    Good luck to any one trying to change that!

    He did a similar thing a few months ago by claiming the Federal government was responsible for health care in the States. There was immediate blow-back by governors and mayors. Now there are numerous media clips he can use to place all the bad decisions (example: NY sending virus cases to care facilities) on those folks.

      Wasn’t there a bit about the risk to health? Surely bait for the Dimocrats to claim that there is no health risk, inviting the retort why then are Democrat run State enforcing mask wearing and shutdowns?
      The Democrats will have to ease restrictions fairly quickly and hope that the number of cases drop so they can claim success, but if they also drop in States that didn’t shut down this won’t fly. People will think those restrictions were unnecessary.

      With the reduction in restrictions the economy will start to recover, and normality will seem obtainable. Then the pent-up resentment towards the “close everything down” people will join the ridiculous Green policies of Biden as a reason to vote for Trump.

    If we do go to universal mail in voting, there can be no doubt that fraud will increase and there will be even more court challenges, so we probably won’t even know the actual results until well after inauguration day.

      What the legacy media won’t tell you is that Trump is totally OK with traditional absentee voting, as there are suitable anti-fraud measures.

      He is absolutely not OK with mail-in voting due to the lack of anti-fraud measures.

      I am generally against the Australian system of compulsory voting because people who have no clue or interest in politics are forced to vote but there is not too much voter fraud. Given the situation in the US though, it might be better to have compulsory voting to minimise fraud, even if it means morons are forced to vote as they are in Australia.

      (Well technically in Australia you are not actually forced to VOTE, you are required to attend an election polling place to have your name crossed off, whether you fill out the ballot papers or not is up to you. We also have absentee voting.)

        David M:

        The solution is to ban mail in votes as lacking anti-fraud measures while alowing absentee voting where there are checks. Some States (California etc) will try to over rule Trump and leave themselves open to claims of vote rigging and re-elections.
        As for people multiple voting at different booths the solution (in India) is a stamp of indelible dye on the back of the hand which wears off in a few days. This makes it very difficult for dead people to vote.

        I am generally against the Australian system of compulsory voting because people who have no clue or interest in politics are forced to vote but there is not too much voter fraud.

        How do we know that there is not too much voter fraud? There has been a report of one voter voting 15 times! It seems he was a resisdent of a Nursing Home, so he probably didn’t vote at all (someone else did).
        I recently wrote to the minister for the Federal Electoral Commission;

        Tue, Jul 14, 7:39 PM
        Senator Mathias Cormann MP.
        Dear Minister,

        You have announced your impending retirement and I wish you all the best in your life after politics.

        There is one thing that I am going to ask of you before your retirement date. As Minister responsible for the Australian Electoral Commission could you do something to improve the integrity of our electoral processes.

        Cheating in our elections has been going on for many years. This report is from 7 years ago.

        https://www.news.com.au/national/police-investigate-multiple-votes-in-2013-federal-election-one-person-voted-15-times/news-story/907b4e88c5ebb89880b45f4f88e92b50

        Despite many examples of voters voting more than once there has not been a single prosecution for electoral fraud! If old people in Nursing homes are voting multiple times, it is likely because they are being manipulated and their votes harvested by political activists.

        Since then we have had whole boxes of votes going missing. No one was punished. It is time that the Electoral Commission staff were made more accountable.

        In the last two elections there has been a lot more voting prior to election day. The Electoral Commission has encouraged that. People are supposed to have a reason to vote early, but I have not been asked what my reason was and neither was anyone else that I observed.

        I think it is time for voter ID. I have spoken to a few electoral officials and they think there is a problem about people voting using someone else’s identity.

        I like the stamp on the back of the hand idea. However our voting now extends over several weeks, so it might not work as intended.

          Cathy McGowan had some members of her team investigated for multiple voting I believe and let’s not forget the postal vote for Edward Kelly sent to the Glenrowan pub last election .
          Until they improve the system there will always be fudging and frord but at least our system is no where near as bad as the American one .

    Perhaps a bit of Biden humor is not off topic. Comparing what he says to what it means.

    “Biden’s multi-trillion dollar climate action plan is full of promises that the law says he cannot keep. Promising to do what you cannot do is a false promise.”

    https://www.cfact.org/2020/07/30/bidens-false-climate-promises/

    The President’s lack of power flows from a fundamental design principle of the American system — no kings. Trump understands this, Biden not so much.

    You can see Trump’s humanity. He is one of the greatest world leaders ever and the greatest alive today and a wonderful human being as well.

    As I see it the survival of the United States and the Western World in general depends on him.

    He is the only one fighting for the principles intrinsic to our Civilisation: Justice, fairness, free speech, free enterprise, law and order, people being judged on the content of their character not the colour of their skin, the Judeo-Christian religious tradition, unashamed of his country’s achievements or the West in general, the understanding that “not all cultures are equal” (some are obviously superior to others), equality of opportunity for all people and not just for Elites or certain demographics, respect for history, a belief in traditional family values, a belief in educating at schools and universities – not using them as Marxist indoctrination centres, a belief in truth in science, his understanding that many Obama era policies were designed to weaken and destroy the United States and the West etc..

    He stands for everything the Left hates.

    If Biden is elected and his 25th Amendment replacement is made President, it is the end for the US and the West and he also needs a suitable replacement in 2024 and beyond.

        The vision is for America to be a net exporter, so how is that withdrawing from the world, when we need the world to do well in order to buy American products?

        Ever since WWII, America has been excessively generous with regard to accepting the losing side of deals, especially when negotiated by Democrats. Saying we’re no longer pushovers and it’s time to be fair again is not withdrawing, but setting the terms of engagement. Tariffs are only temporary and will be lifted once fairness is restored.

        The only country America is in the process of backing away from is China, owing to Covid, intellectual property theft, spying, expansionism in the S China sea, human rights, etc. What Biden would do is cozy back up to the Chinese. He owes them as much for the billion sent to his son’s investment fund. The Democrats may have forgotten about this, but the Chinese surely haven’t, they’re in it for the long term.

        One of things I like about Trump, is he already has all the money, power and prestige anyone could possibly want, and as a result, is nearly incorruptible.

          ‘ … we need the world to do well in order to buy American products?’

          That is a given, its the essence of capitalism, but the new kid on the block is playing hard ball. Beijing has developed a novel form of capitalism which aims to bring impoverished people into the modern world.

          Capitalism needs new markets to survive, this is the idea behind the Belt and Road extravaganza.

          The US has been dragged into two world wars to stop the march of tyranny, but on this occasion they may have met their match.

          I like Donald’s intuitive intellect and charismatic qualities.

            I read recently an appraisal of the China verses the World situation, America and its close allies are together a formidable combined military force of enormous power and influence.

            Add the not close but still allies with a fear of China (CCP) aggression and the point made is that China will soon realise that the diplomatic achievements they worked so hard to obtain over decades past are being frittered away pointlessly.

            It is written that in the early 1400s China sent a huge fleet consisting of the biggest sailing ships ever built until that time escorted by smaller vessels (Junks) to explore the world to discover items of value to China and assess the people of the world. it was later decided that the Chinese civilisation was superior to most others of that time in history and the fleet was burnt and orders made that trade in future would be with trade missions that travelled to China, eg; The Silk Road.

            In my opinion the greater threat to the allies is the UN based far-left manipulators, infiltrators of nations and sovereignty, Marxism socialism, globalism and just for a new world order with a one world government, an EU model globally. And the enemies within nations working to achieve those agendas and goals.

                At the Gympie Historical Society Queensland there are records relating to a Chinese ship wreck and related settlement established at Tin Can Bay, southern end of Fraser Island but on the mainland East of Gympie.

                Apparently the orders to the fleet were that if any ship was sunk the survivors would stay where that sinking occurred if possible and of course if not killed.

                A stone watchtower was built on the hill behind the settlement which was demolished by the government around the time of white Australia policy, the stones dumped in the Sandy Strait, authorities apparently concerned about China having a claim. Items of ornaments and other “marks” have been found in the roots of fallen trees, a method the Chinese used to leave evidence of them being there. They were the first to discover Gold in the Gympie District.

              IMHO the greatest threat to the allies is from within. Some might refer to it as the 5th column. Perhaps but whatever it is without strong leaders like Trump the West will implode. That’s why I’m concerned who will replace Trump, be it this year or later on. China and Russia very likely already know all that and are waiting. The same sort of thing happened to many other great civilisations in the past.

          To withdraw from the roll as world policeman and return to isolationism? It depends on a number of factors, we should expect to see the yuan become king and supplant the dollar.

          • #

            Being the worlds policeman is not a role that’s in the best interest of Americans and preferring not to fight the wars of others is not a symptom of isolationism, but one of sanity. Besides, most of the trading partners we care about don’t need, or want, us to police them. Going after those who attack us or our allies is righteous, but preventing factions who have been enemies for generations from fighting each other is a fools errand and a waste of resources. They need to work things like that out for themselves, but if it interferes with our best interests, watch out.

            The threats to us were bin Laden and his cult of fanatics which morphed into ISIS, none of which threatens us anymore. If a new threat arises, I’m confident it would be taken care of (unless Biden beats Trump). Next to the Progressive Socialists, China is the biggest threat to America and Trump is doing the right kinds of things to mitigate this threat by working to minimize our dependence on them for many critical products.

    Apart from the personality issues:
    Government is granted the ultimate use of force, and, essentially, is force.
    Any conflict with government, if carried to an extreme, will result in a meeting with a person with a badge and a gun.
    We are choosing between a party that wishes to use government to enforce a civil society, a set of rules within which all operate equally,
    and a party that wishes to enforce a political society, where the vast majority of life’s choices are made or enforced based on ideological position.

    Easy choice for me.

    A typical modern interviewer; instead of asking questions he talks about himself and his feelings and what he sees or feels instead of simply asking questions and then shutting the hell up and allowing his subject to answer.
    There was a time when an interviewer’s place was simply as a moderator whose job was to get the subject to express himself as openly and as much as possible. Look at any interview these days and 60% of the content is the interviewer talking, not the subject. Constant interruptions and every effort being made to guide the discussion in a certain direction or set up a gotcha moment.
    Sickening.

      I agree. There have been good examples too; Michael Parkinson and Andrew Denton spring to mind.

      That said, if what he sees and feels match the current emotional zeitgeist then he’s going
      to establish a connection with the audience. Any subsequent relief / reassurance he displays
      is potentially going to then be mirrored by that same audience.

      I’m not saying it’s deliberate manipulation, but it’s definitely the sort of thing that
      is going to be effective in this day and age. Rational and critical thinking is on the way
      out. Feels is the new black.

          PF that GDP figure of minus 32% you quote is an annualised, extrapolated estimate based pro-rata on the April-June Quarter figures. The quarterly drop in US GDP was about 10%, not 32%. The US traditionally reports its growth as an annualised figure, unlike other nations that report it by the actual quarterly rate.

          By way of comparison as to how the US is faring globally, your shining heroes in the EU — which I recall you previously sneered at the UK for wanting to leave — have had an annualised drop in GDP of 39.8% for the EU as a whole, and for the Eurozone currency area, a drop of 40.3%. That single market, single currency and central control-freakery really work . . . or not. The preliminary figure for the quarterly drop in EU GDP was 12.1%.

          The US is doing better than Europe at least and Britain is well rid of the EU stone around its neck, especially when trying to drag itself out of this global slump. Considering the constant impeachment, Russian collusion and associated fiascos he has had to fight off since even before Day 1, and now the BLM idiocy and insurrection by derelict Democrat mayors and governors to distract him, I don’t think the Don Father is doing too badly at all.

      The fact that you even try to DENY that the current congress is massive road block, constantly trying to bring down a President who actually wants to improve life for ALL Americans, shows just how out of touch with reality you really are.

    And like last time a lot of Trump voters will be lying low so I wouldn’t get lost in the polls.

    Meanwhile in China – This 2008 landslide on the Yangtze created a 15 metre wave. There is potential for many bigger and many more due to the destabilizing and variable inundations of over 100 metres amid the towering ancient features. The twisting topography was kind to a nearby town but what might an event like this or bigger mean to a dam wall if it happens at the right place? Up and down the catchments these events are becoming more prevalent.

      That blog is just hot air.
      Thanks to Beowulf above 13.3.1.1 for explaining- we know that the 30% drop in US economy figure is fake news. The quarterly drop in US GDP was about 10%, not 32%.

    He suggested an alternative to mail-in voting if it’s unsafe to have traditional polling. He didn’t demand it. He even stated that he preferred that went ahead on the day. A delay of two months means that its still occurs before his term is up.

    And a massive beat up still h happens.

    DJT was never ambitious to become a POTUS candidate, why would a very wealthy now older person want that public exposure and scrutiny, and loss of much personal time out?

    I read in 2017 that he was recruited by powerful civilian and military leaders who were very worried about the Socialist Democrat/Globalism adverse impacts on their country, in other words American Patriots.

    Well done Jo for spotting and publishing the interview. The first interview of the US president where he’s treated like a human being says it all for me!

    Evidence Please

    All the MSM has done is repeat back to him his own misinformation, they don’t need to make anything up.
    He has no evidence for voter fraud.

    Thanks Jo. I watched that though. A few highlights:

    1. Ali G interview. Who else remembers that? Trump was cautiously prepared to take Ali G seriously for about a minute, despite his (Ali’s) attire and his idiotic business premise (a solution to drippy ice cream), then Ali comes up with Ice Cream Gloves and Trump is out of there!
    2. Rule of Law/Tough on protesters. Pull down a federal statue and you get 10 years jail. The statute was already there. He just threatened top use it.
    3. World Leaders. Trump says, I get on really well with world leaders. I am tougher on world leaders and any other president. I agree. I just wish he had told Malcolm where to go over the illegal immigrant swap
    4. Tweets. Jo covered that.
    5. Dr Fauci. Trump is quite generous.
    6. Trump regrets running for president? “I had a dream life” (MSM). Well not exactly; He says “I am really glad I did”.

    Tucker Carlson (Fox News) has interviewed Dave P. many times on his show. (I would bet you guys in Oz can’t get it…if you can I highly recommend it.). The dude is a laugh riot, but also as down-to-earth as one can be.

    And he does *NOT* suffer fools gladly.

    I am so glad that Jo posted it.
