I labored for Governor Ronald Reagan’s 1976 marketing campaign for President when he got here agonizingly near beating Gerald Ford who had by no means been elected President, for the Republican Presidential Nomination.
With the complete Republican institution supporting former Republican Minority Chief, Gerald R. Ford, who Nixon had appointed Vice President on his method out the door, we have been a hardy band of renegades who acknowledged that Ford couldn’t beat the then surging within the Democratic Primaries, Jimmy Carter. In actual fact, Reagan and Carter each shared a rigorously constructed “Washington outsider” persona. I used to be honored to work with Senator Paul Laxalt, Lyn Nofziger, John P. Sears, Clif White, Anderson Carter, Frank Whetstone, Lou Kitchen, Kenny Klinge, Paul Russo, Mike Deaver, Peter Hanaford, Dr. Martin Anderson and his spouse Annelise Anderson, Jeff Bell,
It was broadly assumed that Reagan could be too previous to run once more in 1980, a view I didn’t share. The evening of the 1976 conference, when narrow-victor Gerald Ford coaxed Reagan to the platform for impromptu remarks, Reagan, working with none script, introduced the home down. It was as should you might see a collective mild bulb go off over the heads of each Delegate during which they concluded, “good God–we nominated the wrong guy.” Certainly, Ford would rally however he would lose narrowly to Carter after making the deadly mistake of pumping his final assets into suburban Pennsylvania and New York (as his reasonable Republican advisors determined, as an alternative of Texas and Missouri the place conservative Democrats had discovered that Carter was no conservative).
Ford misplaced and he was historical past. However the coronary heart of the Republican Social gathering nonetheless belonged to Reagan, who scored approval rankings within the excessive 80’s—the very best I had seen till President Donald Trump was elected. His approval score amongst Republicans as we speak is definitely within the ’90s in all respected polls.
Really, after his slender defeat for the 1980 nomination, Reagan solid such a big shadow upon the Republican Social gathering that he wouldn’t solely be nominated and elected however would transfer the middle of gravity throughout the GOP to the proper whereas nonetheless serving two phrases as a ‘Washington outsider.” In actual fact, he was the one candidate with the star-power, presence, fund-raising and “size” to beat a sitting incumbent, President Jimmy Carter in 1980.
So it’s with Trump. So long as Trump stays vigorous, which I’ve little question of, his age is not going to be a difficulty. Having attended the wakes and funerals for each his dad and mom who I knew effectively, I can attest that they lived into their nineties. The President not too long ago misplaced weight and appears twenty years youthful. Extra importantly, he nonetheless most-clearly has the zest for the battle and a a lot clearer understanding of how deep the swamp actually is. I don’t know anybody else who can rally the American individuals the way in which he can.
Whereas I could have been unsure in regards to the potential of a 2024 candidacy by the previous President, I now imagine that such a candidacy isn’t solely obligatory however historic if Trump is to make a Grover Cleveland-like comeback. Trump’s fellow New Yorker, Cleveland, is the one President to serve two non-consecutive phrases profitable in 1884, being defeated in 1888 and taking the workplace again in 1892.
A Trump candidacy can also be indispensable. He’s the chief of a motion far bigger than himself. Even along with his human flaws, he’s the one one with the braveness to face athwart the nation as a colossus and yell “Stop” on the New World Order.
Solely Trump can win in 2024 and take the nation again from the globalist cabal that framed me in a politically motivated witch-hunt, opened based mostly on fabricated proof that Mueller’s high Deputy Andrew Weissmann knew from his time on the FBI was paid for by Hillary Clinton and factually questionable. Mueller (Weissmann) used it because the rationale to have Rod Rosenstein appoint Mueller as Particular Counsel regardless of the absence of any crime to analyze.
The President had the knowledge to see that the individuals who subjected me to a Soviet-style present trial during which my First, Fourth and Fifth Modification rights have been violated, have been the identical individuals who fabricated two impeachments in opposition to him and launched an unlawful, baseless investigation with the intention of eradicating him.
Clearly, I really like President Trump as he saved my life with clemency and a pardon, however my conclusion is predicated on my cool-eyed evaluation of the political dynamic moderately than my affection for and loyalty to the President, and, in fact, my gratitude for his act of each justice and mercy in my case.
However the file will present that I started advocating a Trump candidacy as early as 1988. I acknowledged even then that Donald Trump had the brains, drive, measurement, braveness and stamina to be not solely an incredible presidential candidate however a really nice President.
The hateful left in America is making an attempt to erase a unprecedented file of financial revival which lifted these on the very backside of the financial ladder beneath Donald Trump. Below Trump’s management we had file job development, file wage development, and the bottom ranges of unemployment ever recorded amongst African Individuals, Hispanics, Ladies and Asians — in truth, all individuals. He enacted actual legal justice reform, made constitutionalist judicial appointments, took pro-life actions and eased tensions with the North Koreans whereas holding China to account for its numerous assaults on America, together with the Covid-19 virus which was designed in a Wuhan, China lab, evidently with U.S. taxpayer cash provided by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Keep in mind, I used to be indicted for “lying to Congress” though no misstatement I made was materials or hid any underlying crime. Till a Federal Decide ordered him to take action, Robert Mueller hid via redaction of the long-hidden sections of his closing Report relating to me. He couldn’t sugarcoat the truth that he “found no factual evidence” in opposition to me relating to “the Russians,” WikiLeaks or John Podesta’s embarrassingly printed e-mails. In different phrases, I had no motive to lie. This was withheld from my protection attorneys at trial.
Dr. Fauci, however, clearly lied beneath oath to Congress relating to the “gain of function” funding provided to the Chinese language lab to whip up this lethal bioweapon purposely designed to do most harm to people. So Fauci lied about materials issues and lied to cowl up the reason for dying of hundreds of Individuals killed by his vaccinations, and the harm and struggling to hundreds extra. When will 29-heavily armed FBI brokers storm his residence within the predawn hours and “perp-walk” him exterior of his home for the CNN cameras? When will the FBI ransack his residence and his workplace, leaving them a shambles and taking all of his digital units and plenty of of his skilled information? In spite of everything, he lied to Congress. That we have now a two-tiered justice system is past doubt. The final word DC Prosecutor in my case introduced – within the morning of the day the jury convicted me – that there could be no prosecution to Andrew McCabe, who admitted to mendacity to the FBI to mislead them, a extra critical crime than “lying to Congress.”
Like Reagan, nobody casts a much bigger shadow within the GOP than Trump who has essentially reworked the GOP from being the celebration of nation membership elites to being the celebration of the working class. Trump was capable of attain out and win the votes of blue-collar union members, African-Individuals and Hispanics at ranges by no means earlier than reached by a Republican presidential candidate, and did so with out ever shopping for costly focused media to achieve these voters. Trump ran stronger amongst these key swing voters than both Romney or McCain, which is why he gained Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania in 2016 and almost certainly gained them once more in 2020 if one solely counts official authorized voters in these states.
Trump continues to have a rock-solid base amongst Evangelical Christians who’re nonetheless likely the only strongest constituency throughout the trendy Trump-led Republican Social gathering. Two bogus impeachments, a New York State witch-hunt and the present array of baseless civil lawsuits in opposition to him (and me!) are, in truth, a part of the persevering with effort to smear him as a result of they worry him.
Patriots could wish to help me and my spouse within the countless struggle of “lawfare” during which left-wing teams (bitter about my pardon) foster baseless, groundless, unsubstantiated civil fits in opposition to me that learn extra like press releases than authorized complaints and don’t have any proof in any respect to help their claims. The authorized charges to battle these lawsuits are past my capacity. Patriots who wish to assist on this epic battle can go to StoneDefenseFund.com.
Moreover, no different Republican has emerged as both a possible challenger to the previous President or in its place ought to Trump elect to not run. Trump’s domination of the GOP is so full that anybody who considers difficult the previous President would see it as being futile. My sources inform me that the previous President was most displeased when his former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, mentioned he would run in 2024 no matter Trump’s plans.
Solely Trump has the profile, stamina, dominance, fundraising functionality and the stature to unite the identical majority coalition he gained with in 2016 and held in 2020. Trump can fulfill his potential to additional broaden his vote within the African-American and Hispanic communities in addition to gaining amongst Asian-Individuals, making him the GOP’s strongest potential candidate in 2024.
