trumps Routing of "Free Traders"
I have started to listen to talk radio like I did years ago. I recently tuned in to the the Mark Levin show. Mark claims to be a real Constitutionalist Conservative and avid supporter of true Capitalism and the Free Market \" which made America great and the richest nation on earth which in turn gave us the Great Middle Class of the 50\'s\".
Mark then went on a rant AGAINST Trump regarding Trump\'s advocation of reinstating Protective Tariffs against cheap goods from abroad. which we know devastated the US manufacturing base , NOT high taxes and Regulations as Levin maintains.. and in that rant, Pat, YOUR name was mentioned as another rotten, no-good \"Statist/ Populist advocating Import Tariffs \" that are the antithesis of American Capitalism and the Free Market which made this nation Great etc etc etc\" and, BTW, \"was the cause of the Depression of the 30\'s\"\" !! Really? I thought Wall Street caused that by suddenly tightening up on credit .. but I digress
I about crashed my car hearing his rant! Heretofore, Levin had never discussed economics: only the current events of foreign policy and how Obama was screwing up royally at every turn with which I whole hearted agree ... and his emotional delivery IS very entertaining.
Qustion! Is Levin a Wall Street plant ?? Never once in his rant did he discuss the resultant huge American JOB losses of Free Trade - JOBS , the mothers Milk of all successful nations; ,or the literal Povertization of America ...the tens of thousands of Homeless wondering our streets- a never seen occurrence in my 81 years living in America ! ... all sacrificed on the Alter of Free Trade to the False Gods of Free Markets as you have so eloquently expressed it, Pat What is wrong with these People???? They have to be plants !!!.. they are not stupid! In fact, are exceptionally intelligent. Levin, given his meteoric rise in the radio ratings, has to be exposed either as a Traitor or Brain Damaged.
Ironic it is that on July 4th 2016 instead of storming DC to tar & feather the lot of the rotten traitorous globalists and regain our \"independence\" we light off firecrackers in remembrance of what real Americans did 240 years ago - better to save the matches for the coming winter.
Hillary Clinton is the first presidential candidate with American blood on her hands
Perspective in Confusing times
Many conservatives are going 'never-trump" and that has me very concerned about the level headed thinking of what used to be strong, creative and absolutely clear thinking conservatives. Today it seems we are losing the battle to the surrender politics of PC thinking. Is it because as our solid base of conservatives ages, their convictions of free market fade into their needs of keeping their Social Security and Federal pensions for serving for a few years and hitting the pension jackpot? After hearing from my brother last week on how Trump will be taken out at the convention, I looked at your site to check on your perspective and was relieved to see that one of our great conservative heroes was on side with Mr. Trump. I felt like I have been losing my mind talking with my brother who thinks that by voting for Hillary, he and other conservatives will send a message that she will respect and consider in more centrist governing. I told him to put down the American Flag and pick up the white flag. I told him that there is no honor in surrendering. You know my brother. He served with Bush and he introduced me to you at Paul Weyrich's Heritage Foundation. I have a request. Would you please write an article directly to these self righteous self destructive conservatives who are preaching the surrender politics of Never Trump? Among others, we need a hard hitting piece from a well respected senior statesman. We love you Pat. God and Country need your leadership now more than ever!
Why Trump is Routing Free Traders
Your "Free Trade is a pile of crap" article is right on target. You are one of my top 4 favorite commentators. Keep up the great work, Pat.
Trump and free trade
Just wanted you to know that a bunch of us retired americans living in Thailand are made happier by reading your column. Keep up the common sense that has so far just about left everybody else.
Supported you for years. Agree with your opinions and views. Keep talking and writing. Thanks
After Brexit, a Trump Path to Victory
The U.S. has 100 Senators and 435 Representatives in the House. Every U.S. citizen gets to vote for 2 Senators and 1 representative for a total of 3 out of 535, only 0.56% of our national legislative politicians. Even those who believe their vote counts are left knowing they have no vote for 99.5% of the national politicians. We truly have “taxation without representation” just like the member countries of the EU. This is a significant part of Brexit and of Trump/Sanders support.
A Your Work
A quick note to let you know that even in Seattle, you have admirers and supporters. Our family greatly respects your work, your experience and your wisdom.
We wish you had a one hour show with wise conservative guests but we know todays audience has no attention span or interest in reality.
Say hi to Bay for us, we had a nice lunch with her a few months back.
Thank you Pat.

After Brexit, A Trump path to victory
Until I read this blog on Brexit and what it means to the USA and the world, I\'d not found anything that encapsulated so well my own feeling of these events and the feelings of countless millions across the free world. I hope they find their fruit in November.
After Brexit, a Trump Path to Victory
I regularly get your column from Linda Muller and mostly aree with you. However today you write a few things about the UK that I believe are wrong. England is already \"a polyglot boarding house\" for the world, due to their colonial past. The Muslims are the most powerful and aggressive group. They are very active in under age girls prostitution among other criminal activities. If you look up a speech made by Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Germany before several thousand Turkish Muslims and Muslims of other European countries, he strongly urged all Muslims to vote only for Muslim candidates in future elections. And he was heard…..As you know the mayor of London is an immigrant descendant form Pakistan. Certain parts of London and other cities are off limits for Caucasians. Sharia law is tolerated, though not officially. The England you refer to has long ceased to exist and the Judeo Christian Civilization is a thing of the past, which makes me very sad. I am a citizen of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and live in exile in Thailand. In Europe it is now “Refugees Welcome”, but only Muslim. Christians are not so welcome, and Catholics not at all. Since I openly support Mr. Donald Trump for next POTUS, I have no more friends in Europe.

Unlike the worthless republican elites you get us. Like Reagan said the party left me! Keep your great articals/opinions coming!
Over the Years
Pat, I have listened to you over the past 40 years or so, and it is clear, your vision and insight has been right on, from the beginning. It has been a tragic thing to watch our country to go from the light on the hill, to being on the brink of a third world country.
I wish things were different, but through it all, I am so pleased you have been there for us all the way, keeping us informed. You are truly a great American, and I am proud to call you one of my most favorite people in the world. God bless you Pat.
Bush Republicanism is Dead
You are so right Pat you are truly a visionary and you should have won the election. Bush was a sellout, he destroyed our country and he wasn\'t even that conservative. God bless you.
Is Islamic Terrorism America's Future?
Yes, it is because you can't quarrel with success: it is an effective motivator towards acceptance of endless wars in the ME and Orwellian abrogation of individual liberties at home. The 19 BBC (Boys with Box Cutters) was a big box office success. Those who demand their money back will be given the Redacted Pages. Bibi is giggling.
