If you scroll below, I posted a recent Facebook post from Glenn Beck which I completely agree with. I wanted to attach a note from myself along with it.
Donald Trump is not a conservative. All of my life he has been on TV promoting Democrats and liberal policies. He was not a big fan of Reagan or other conservatives until very recently. In 2009- 2010, while all of us were going to Tea Party rallies, forming 912 clubs and reading Liberty & Tyranny, Donald Trump was giving $50,000 to Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.
The more I research and learn about this man, the more I believe he is extremely dangerous for this country. The next president might appoint 4 Supreme Court justices! Could you imagine the type of person Trump would appoint? This terrifies me. I believe Trump might be a scarier choice than Clinton or Sanders and you know how I can’t stand them. Please research and learn the truth about Trump.
I would also like to thank Glenn Beck for being honest with America about Donald Trump from day one of his candidacy. Beck took the high road and stood against Trump even though it wasn’t the popular thing to do at the time. He received so much hate from so many directions because he did the right thing …and he still did it anyway. When everyone else in the conservative media was trying to be best friends with Trump, Beck stood strong with his values and principles and talked about Trump’s horrid history. He’s been loyal to Cruz this entire election cycle because Cruz was one of the few politicians who was loyal to the American people. When Cruz went to Washington, he went to fight the establishment and the Democrats and to start a Constitutional awakening. I admire Glenn Beck for exposing Trump and being loyal to Cruz right from the beginning. TRUTH MATTERS! I’m sure Beck’s position cost him ratings and fans. Yet he had integrity and did the right thing while many in the media remained star struck by Trump. Beck refused to bow down and kiss that man’s ring. The spirit of George Washington is alive in Beck. If the framers are watching us from heaven, they must be very proud of Mr. Beck for putting human decency above all else. I know I am. May God bless him. The Trump situation has made me distrust many conservative websites which I use to rely on. It didn’t sit well with me watching these sites mislead the American people into believing Trump may be a conservative by promoting him as an outsider and anti- establishment.
Trump’s behavior lately reminds me of when Obama ran into Joe The Plumber on the campaign trail and he let his intention slip about wanting to “spread the wealth around.” It was an off teleprompter moment. At the time, many of us already knew he was a Marxist but for others it was a light bulb going off. I hear many pundits asking The Donald to stop using Alinsky tactics. They think he is making a mistake by accidently attacking from the Left. That is where they are wrong. He’s not mistakenly attacking from the left. He’s attacking from the Left because he is the Left. He’s not making a mistake when he uses Alinsky tactics. He is a student of Alinsky. This is his true nature, his true values are shining through just like the day Obama stumbled into a plumber name Joe. Trump is a Leftist student of Alinsky who attempts to destroy any opposition. His entire history shows it. Rules for Radicals: RULE #12- “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. Trump’s personal attacks on Cruz and his position to support ethanol subsidies in an attempt to win Iowa are just the latest in a never ending stream of statist-like actions on his part.
I was too young to vote for Reagan but I loved him so much. I campaigned for him to every single adult I knew at the time begging them to vote for him. I miss Reagan every day. I think about him daily. He really made a tremendous impact on my life. My entire life I have had to vote for establishment rinos who I was not enthused about and who, quite frankly, I didn’t even like. Most of my votes cast were against someone instead of FOR someone. I voted for George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney. I didn’t like any of them. I had such high hopes for this election. This is the first time in over three decades we have a consistent constitutional conservative running, Ted Cruz. Then out of nowhere a progressive like Trump runs a train through this entire election cycle. Trump may very well have destroyed this moment we have waited for. I feel so angry at much of the conservative media. So many people knew who Trump was and for one reason or another they didn’t want to say it. The media on our side greatly mislead the American people. I lost respect for many people due to their behavior around Donald Trump. And many news organization which I relied on have lost my trust. And I am completely heartbroken about Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump. How could she support a man who was openly okay with partial birth abortion for sixty years of his life? Wow, my spirit is crushed!
Ted Cruz is a classy guy and a nice person. He has demonstrated restraint and leadership throughout his campaign. Hopefully, this will be the point where people who don’t follow politics as closely as we do sit up and begin to take notice of him. I was very impressed with his debate performance the other night. I pray his numbers stay up in Iowa. He is exactly what America needs to begin healing. With a President Cruz and the continued progress of the Convention of States movement maybe we can put this broken republic back together again. I’ll keep praying. I’m so upset. I feel prayer is the only thing I can do at this moment to find any peace.
From this point forward, I will feel like The Blaze is the first news site I can trust for the truth. The real truth. May God watch over and bless Glenn Beck and the Blaze.

As I pointed out on Fox, I was referring to the 2008 election, not 2012. Here is why I believe Donald Trump did, in fact, vote for Barack Obama in 2008:
1. He was a registered democrat when he cast the vote. Trump had been a registered democrat for 7 years by the time the 2008 election came around.
2. This doesn’t guarantee that Trump voted for Obama of course. However, registered democrats in New York voted for Obama by a 91% to 8% margin. So, if Trump was in that 8%, he was quite the outlier.
3. He remained in the democratic party for almost another year after casting the vote.
4. In the decade leading up to the vote, he was a dedicated Democrat, with the only exception being his flirtation with the Independence (Reform) Party in 1999-2000. Incidentally, in this period, large parts of his platform were considerably to the left of Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. In fact, I don’t believe even Bernie Sanders has ever proposed a wealth tax on what is in your bank account.
5. In the year leading up to the vote, he spoke favorably about Hillary Clinton, telling Wolf Blitzer “I think Hillary would do a good job.” Obviously, it is theoretically possible for someone that thinks Hillary would be a good president to vote against Obama. But to paraphrase Donald: “Not a lot of Republican votes come out of blue state democrats that support Hillary Clinton.”
6. He was among the fiercest critics of the Bush administration. Yes, now it’s hard to believe that he would have voted for Obama, but in 2008 he had spent several years speaking just as negatively about Bush. He called him “a terrible president, perhaps the worst president in the history of this country.”
7. It’s not just that he called Bush a “disaster” many times. It’s why he called him a disaster: Iraq. He called the invasion of Iraq “one of the worst decisions ever made” saying it would have been a “wonderful thing” if he had been impeached because of the war. In fact, he was arguing for the war related impeachment of Bush just two weeks before he cast his presidential vote.
8. Given his opinion on Iraq, consider Trump’s available choices as he looked back: one candidate on record opposing the war, one candidate on record passionately supporting “one of the worst decisions ever made.” Why wouldn’t he vote for Obama?
9. Similarly, given his opinion on Iraq, consider Trump’s available choices as he looked forward: one candidate on record saying he would end the war, the other on record saying he would escalate it. Why wouldn’t he vote for Obama?
10. He continued to praise Obama after the election telling Larry King “Here’s a man that not only got elected, I think he’s doing a really good job.”
11. He gushed about Obama in his 2009 book: “His comments have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. He has also surrounded himself with very competent people, and that’s the mark of a strong leader.”
12. He supported Obama’s first main policy push, the stimulus, saying it was “what we need” while praising Obama’s for “building infrastructure, building great projects, putting people to work in that sense.”
13. He supported Obama’s efforts to fix the banks including to potentially “nationalize” them. “I do agree with what they’re doing with the banks. Whether they fund them or nationalize them, it doesn’t matter.”
14. Looking back at this period, he described himself as Obama’s “biggest cheerleader.”
15. Trump’s argument is that he raised money for McCain, so obviously he supported him. Is this really a standard Donald feels comfortable with? Does that mean he also supported John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer?
16. Immediately following the passage of Obamacare, while even moderate republicans coalesced around its repeal, Donald Trump made a maximum donation to the campaign of Harry Reid. Reid was one of the few vulnerable democrats able to hold on to power in the Tea Party wave election of 2010.
17. Speaking of the Tea Party wave, put yourself in that moment again. Hope for constitutional preferences was renewed. Hundreds of thousands of people were gathering all across the country and in Washington DC for Restoring Honor. Conservatives celebrated the biggest wave in a century. One month after that election, Donald Trump gave $50,000 to Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.
Do I believe Donald Trump voted for Barack Obama in 2008? Yes. Yes, I do.
I could go on, but I’m in the middle of intense financial negotiations with an ousted Nigerian prince.
