Seeing the race with perfect clarity.

Paul GleiserSeeing the race with perfect clarity.

I am a man of many deficiencies. (Ask my ex-wife.) But being muddled and confused and unable to see things clearly is not one of them.

I have superb clarity as to the 2024 Republican primary season.

It’s over.

Oh, sure, we have Super Tuesday next week. Fifteen states – including California and Texas – are holding primaries (or in the case of Alaska, a caucus). Nearly three quarters of the delegates needed for the nomination are still up for grabs.

After Super Tuesday, there will still be 30 state primary elections on the calendar. These things are what keep Nikki Haley going.

But none of it matters. It’s over. The remaining primaries are mere formalities. Donald Trump is the Republican nominee.

I’m not the least bit confused as to what that means. It means pure and simple that Republicans have a binary choice. Get on board with Donald Trump, or, run the all-too-real risk of giving Joe Biden what would certainly be a catastrophic second term.

There is no third option. Thus, the word, ‘binary.’

For all who have expressed concerns about a Trump 3.0 candidacy – present company included – it’s time to get over it. We’ve had our say.

Yes, Trump is given to verbal excesses that gain him nothing while costing him with independents and moderates. Yes, it’s entirely appropriate to worry about the effect that the avalanche of grotesquely unfair attacks on Trump by the unhinged Left and the partisan media will have on those independents and moderates. Yes, Trump’s legal challenges are draining precious time and resources – and will continue to do so all the way to November.

These concerns have all been given due consideration. Republican primary voters have made their decision. They want Donald Trump.

If you call yourself a Republican or a conservative, it’s time to respect that decision and get behind it.

The polls show Trump leading by a factor greater than the margin of error in four of the six battleground states. That’s great. Make no mistake, though. Joe Biden could still win the election. So far this year, the Dems have raised half again more money than the Republicans. That matters.

But here’s what matters more. If Biden wins, it will validate the abominable tactics of the increasingly radical Democratic Party. “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime,” – a quote attributed to Joseph Stalin’s secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria – will become standard procedure against every Republican candidate for president from now on.

Another 10 million of the world’s poor (along with unknown numbers of its criminals) will pour into the country across our southern border.

Crime will further destroy cities.

And Lord alone knows what Xi Jingping and Vladimir Putin will do. (Hint: nothing good.)

So, Nikki Haley, you Never Trumpers, you “traditional” Republicans. The country is on the line. Whatever your concerns about Trump, they are dwarfed by the cold, relentless, unremitting fear of a second Biden term.

So, get over it and get on board with the Republican nominee.

It’s crunch time.

    I would still, still rather have an ugly champion than no champion.

    I posted twice since it doesn’t seem to be working. Don’t know why, wrong words, perhaps?

    Haley, in my humble opinion, is not worthy of the office of President. There are choices other than her who WOULD be worthy of it if something happened to the President. When mccain ran, it was not him I voted for, it was SARAH PALIN as many other people did I am sure. If the vice president were not important, why have one? That being said the choice should be…what if something happened to the President… who would be worthy of the seat? Could they handle the job at hand? Could they handle the leaders of other countries?
    We KNOW that President Trump did! And we know biden couldn’t and wouldn’t do so nor would the ones the left would stick in there to replace him. Could you really stand listening to the cackling harris or any of the others out there the left has thrown out there!
    I’ve always thought AMERICA and AMERICAN CITIZENS should come FIRST. Not last like the left chooses to do, we have seen this first hand. So the CLEAR CHOICE is very clear to me and that is PRESIDENT TRUMP(despite all his so called faults)is the CLEAR CHOICE to help dig us out of bidenism!

    Make America Great Again a.k.a. MAGA. What could possibly be wrong with that? Unless the goal is to unravel and destroy our Republic, which is the goal of the Democratic Progressive Party. ABSOLUTELY IT IS TIME TO UNIFY. The Progressives keep saying we must save our Democracy. There is no democracy without the Republic and Constitution; it is National Socialism with the Dems. I do love how they tell everyone what they are doing to us and very few listen or act. Did anyone note what the esteemed Governor of California is attempting to push through their legislature? Forcing banks to give “First Time Home Buyers” a no interest loan period. In other words, any of these illegals who wish to get a loan to buy (steal) a home, the bank must do it. Knowing full well the loan will never be paid back or a Biden backed Fed banking system will bail them out. I am changing my name, ethnicity, and race next week.

    The simple fact that the Democrats are so adamantly against anyone or anything they can attach the “MAGA” label to says everything I need to know about them. Make America Great Again?!?! Horrible idea?!?! Not to most REAL Americans!!!

    With all due respect, it may be TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE for the anti-Trump Republicans and Independents to join the Trump Patriots with sincerity. These Patriots have NEVER accepted Biden and his criminal activities with globalists, as the REAL President that got “81 million” (legitimate?) votes vs. the landslide victory of Trump at 74 million votes, or more, a record for an incumbent President in the 2020 election. These Patriots have been continuously demonized as “election deniers” by the hate-Trump crowd of all Marxist stripes despite the mounting evidence that the election was stolen by 4 years of expert planning by thieves in the Democrat skunk works to violate election laws with impunity in most States and in the middle of the night for all to see. The ongoing hatred for Trump in the RINO Wing of the Party exceeds all logic given his incredibly successful track record [mean tweets and all] while he had to fight monumental opposition by Marxist Democrats and their fellow travelers in the RINO Wing every day. I can’t see how these Republicans in their vicious cycle of Trump hatred can rally around Trump with such habitual opposition to Trump having been practiced for 7 years as fed by the Democrat controlled Marxist media.

    You are right to ask for “traditional” Republicans and Never Trumpers get on board with the Republican nominee. I hope the salvation of the country (from the destruction that is now underway) will overcome bruised egos.

    I’d like to know something Ms. Solomon. Why didn’t you provide your information on Dominion Voting Systems to Fox News? It seems reasonable they would have paid you handsomely rather than have to shell out that 750 million.

    We can all rest assured that Merrick Garland, the US Attorney General, who is the TOP law enforcement official in the United States since the Biden regime took over the country with a RECORD “81 million votes” has addressed the congregation at Selma’s Tabernacle Baptist Church that he has made ELECTION INTEGRITY his top priority to defend Democracy that has been under assault by radical, right wing, Republicans. He pledged to fight voter ID laws and other election integrity measures that he deemed “discriminatory, burdensome, and unnecessary.” He lamented that in recent years, certain measures such as voter ID laws threaten HIS version of Democratic Democracy. “Such measures threaten the foundation of our system of government.” He has engaged in legal challenges to state and local jurisdictions to implement what he identified as “discriminatory, burdensome, and unnecessary restrictions on access to the ballot, including those related to mail-in voting, the use of drop boxes, and voter ID requirements.

    Garland’s remarks come at a time when he has refused to enforce federal laws against ILLEGAL TRESPASS into the country by 8 to 12 million ILLEGAL ALIENS by way of his OPEN BORDER policies in the last 3.5 years since “81 million” voters put the Biden regime in office. This illegal “immigration” into the country is at historic highs. I’m so glad that this man is on the side of Law and Order. Does this mean that criminally inspired STOLEN elections are a thing of the past?

    If these Marxist Democrats win in the next Federal election on November 5th, Democratic Democracy (“One Party, Mob Rule”) will dominate all further “elections”. The Democrat version of ELECTION INTEGRITY will be enshrined into our voting system with ENFORCED HARMONY throughout the Nation (or what’s left of it) as censorship of “disinformation” will become common place. Will “You Tell Me Texas” become a victim of this “harmony”? Please see the US Attorney General’s remarks in Selma at the following link just a few days ago.
