Donald Trump—Who He REALLY Is
by Chuck Yeager
The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.
And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others. But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trumps positions and plans:1) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
3) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 8 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):
American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
Only go to war to win.
Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
See the unseen.
Prepare for threats before they materialize.
Respect and support our present and past warriors.
4) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.5) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.
6) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.8) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:
Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
$1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%
9) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country. Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
11) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
12) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
13) Trump opposes Common Core.
14) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
15) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
16) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states’ rights issue, not a federal issue.17) Trump supports the death penalty.
Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm. looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point:
“When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy.We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.” On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally. He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.
Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans.
Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.
Before we criticize someone because of what the media is saying, maybe we should consider what they have to offer. What are they bringing to the table. Researching their background independently of what the news says. What’s their bio?? What’s Obama’s bio? If you researched him prior to becoming President, would you have hired him to work for you or run your business?

(Hey Gary, we ask for 300 million and get only about 300 thousand, but that's enough if all of them are pragmatic, persistent, dedicated to the restoration of true Liberty and persevere. By working together, even as a relatively small group of 300,000, we can turn this ship around. BTW, 50 million would be that much better!)
John......I agree with everything you are saying.....even down to the orchestrating of Sandy Hook and the other false flag events. I've spent countless hours researching the NWO, Agenda 21, the TriLateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, Saul Alinsky and the Cloward/Piven Communist strategy. But....... the fact remains.....we have to vote for someone .....or .....not at all. I have consistently wrote letters to my representatives.....and......to my local paper extolling the adherence of the Constitution. My friends and neighbors are constantly and kindly bombarded by my thoughts and comments on the subject. What else can an average person do?
Some folks are itching for a full blown revolution ....and maybe that's what it would take.....but.....I fail to understand how a mass of unorganized humanity with shotguns and hunting rifles could withstand the onslaught of the Military. Yes....I said Military....a Military that is under the control of the NWO cabal. We've already seen how "we, the people" supported Operation American Spring. They couldn't take the time and effort to make a simple trip to DC. Things aren't bad enough just yet...to get the attention of the American people.
If Trump is a true Patriot.....I figure he'll go the way of JFK and MLK. The vitriol against him from both parties should tell us that.
Make no mistake about it....I am well aware of what's going on....I will do my part when and if the time comes....but....for now..... there is no plan that I can see.
Just quickly, the plan has been there all along. The plan is to have the People in charge of government, not the other way around. For too long now (evidenced, in part, by the large number of Patriots willing to exchange ideas and thoughts here on this forum), We, the People, have been led to believe, through the use of propaganda, psyops and other forms of mind control, that our central government is above us and is in control of our lives. Far too many of the American sovereigns truly believe that. But that does not mean we are destined to become slaves to the One World Order. Simply take control of your own life, as much as is practical, find out how to form a Common Law Grand Jury in your county then become the change you would like to see in government. I have taken a stand to be one of the People who are poised to show our local government (starting there then moving to State then central gov't) that We, the People, are in control of our government and those who "work for government" are EMPLOYEES of the People. We, in this county and state, shall become the rightful controllers of our government employees and we will return to our rightful place of primacy over our government employees and we will return to a rightful and lawful form of self-governance. We are making a stand. Can you do that?
I will enlist an attorney friend of mine, as well as a doctor friend who is involved in our local Tea Party, to see if we can get the ball rolling on this Common Law Grand Jury. I don't know one earthly thing about it but I will do what I can to enlist their help as well as a few more people I know.
That is fantastic, Forrest Jane. Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence made it clear that the People of the then thirteen colonies came to the decision to separate from the British Crown thus making those People of the now thirteen Independent States of the united States free sovereigns in their own land. Following their successful military campaign to The preamble to our Constitution for the united States begins with "We, the People..."
My previous reply got messed up somehow. What I wanted to say was that following their successful military campaign to force the British to capitulate and recognize the newly formed united States as a free and independent nation, our Founders struggled with creating a system of governance that would ensure the freedom of the American sovereigns in perpetuity. They settled on a Republic, which we still have today.
Another issue our Founders dealt with was the formation of a central ("federal") government. They knew an overly powerful central government could destroy everything they had fought and died for, so they attempted to create one which was bound by law to only very few and clearly enumerated powers. The law they hoped would bind that central government was the Constitution for the united States. This Constitution begins with a preamble which itself begins with the words "We, the People". This shows that the document that created the central government was itself created by "We, the People" which means that the central government was created by We, the People.
It is axiomatic that what is created can never be superior to its creator, or logic would dictate. Therefore, the central government of the united States has always been, and is now, BENEATH the People and is, in fact, owned by the People (even though all appearance today seem to contradict that notion). We just need to take it back. That is what the Common Law Grand Jury is all about, regaining our rightful position of primacy over our government and our government employees.
Looking again at the Constitution for the united States, you will find in the Bill of Rights references to a Common Law Grand Jury in two of those Amendments. The 7th clearly states that We shall have, in suits at common law, courts according to common law. The 5th clearly states that "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury...". These, among other references, were wisely derived from other significant documents such as Magna Carta. One of the most important principles of Magna Carta to the people of the thirteenth century was the principle of a Grand Jury under common law.
So, if we take these two Amendments together, we can see there was an unmistakable intent to establish courts at common law and, by extension, Common Law Grand Juries. In 1946, members of the legal profession (judges, lawyers, etc.) apparently got tired of dealing with the People's grand jury and so made a declaration of their own which said the old Common Law Grand Jury was outdated and "obsolete", thereby shoving this vital and extremely valuable resource into the closet with little prospects of being used again. That's why neither you nor I had heard of a Common Law Grand Jury until a few intrepid sovereigns began digging it up relatively recently. Now we shall have our extra-governmental, People's Grand Jury under Common Law back in the not-too-distant future.
Forrest Jane, I applaud you for your openness and your willingness to learn about your Common Law Grand Jury. THIS is what needs to take place in order for We, the People, to return sanity to our government as well as morality, dignity, peace and truth to our communities and society as a whole. You are at the forefront of the recuperation, Jane. Please let me know of your progress and if I can be of any further help.
Be very, very wary, Forrest Jane! Be careful of the org National Liberty Alliance - some who have gotten involved with them and followed their directions have been abandoned by them and left on their own to face jail time. Actually, there should be old posts on this site about them. Old Rooster - weren't you following the case in FL? Can't recall the details or names right now!
Have you seen the nasty and gross attacks on Trump? He hits back. I hit back. He wants to win. I want to win. You hit me, I'll hit you back. We have been a loser country for decades now because we've been the "bigger" party. Keep being the bigger party and keep being the loser.
Explain the disaster Trump would bring. That statement has no basis whatsoever. He is the one that is talking common sense by NOT fighting Putin and blowing up Syria more than Obama has done. Fiorina and Cruz want to carpet bomb the area. Trump wants to deal with these people on a rationale level, not by stirring the pot. So tell me, when the others are willling to jump right into another bloody war without consideration of our men, but Trump doesn't want to spare any more men's lives and body parts, how does that lead to another disaster, but Cruz and Fiorina and others don't? Really irrational judgment.
seems noone exists today who GOD loves to the extent of LOT....
Can someone help me? I have had a request from a member to "chat". I don't know what to do to engage in a "chat" as I am somewhat unfamiliar with how to navigate in this direction! I'm clicking but nothing is working! Help!
If you see the "chat" window appear at the bottom of your screen, simply click in the narrow, horizontal white space beneath it to start your cursor blinking. Once you see the cursor blinking, begin typing something. Once you have entered all the characters you want to type, simply press your "Enter" key and it will be transmitted to the party who invited you to chat. Hope that helps.
You may also initiate a chat by hovering your pointer or hand over the member with whom you wish to chat in the "Members Online" pop-up window at the lower right hand corner of your screen. Once you have highlighted the name of the member with whom you wish to chat, move the pointer or hand over to the right where you will find a little black down-arrow.
