Trump to headline South Florida Tea Party Tax Day Rally

Donald Trump will headline the South Florida Tea Party’s Tax Day Rally on Saturday in Boca Raton. Trump will share the bill with Florida Congressman Allen West.

“Our members are ecstatic,” said Everett Wilkinson of South Florida Tea Party. He explained that they had polled members on who they would most like to hear speak, and Trump was the resounding first choice.

“They feel that Donald Trump understands what’s going on with their country and is standing up and actually doing something about it,” he explained.

Does the double billing mean an endorsement is in the works? Wilkinson said he wasn’t sure.

“I can’t speak for Allen West,” he said. “I think Allen West and Trump share a lot of the same ideas, but I think it’s way too early – Trump is not an official candidate now. We’ll have to see going forward.”

Tea Party Fort Lauderdale, another Tea Party group in South Florida, approved of the choice.

“I think it’s a great idea that Trump’s speaking to the Tea Party,” said Danita Kilcullen, who said that Trump was certainly not unpopular within her Tea Party group.

“At least he’s bold, and he speaks out, and he’s willing to speak his peace, and he’s willing to take a beating for what he says from the other side,” she said. “He’s got guts.”

Trump owns a mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, and his longtime political confidant Roger Stone told The Daily Caller that Florida would be an essential part of the real estate mogul’s potential path to the Republican nomination.

    When I found out that Trump was the keynote speaker at a south Florida Tea Party rally, I had to write you guys. What the hell is wrong with some of you people in even considering Trump for President? I’m going to quote my facts from what I heard on the Mark Levin radio show, and then you see if you think you still want to support guy for Presiden: During “the teeth” of the Tea Party battles, Donald Trump contributed to the following campaigns:
    February, 2010–$2000 to Anthoney Weiner’s (very liberal Democrat) primary campaign
    December ,’09–$400 to Chuck Schumer’s (another liberal Democrat) primary campaign
    $1600 to Chuck Schumer in the general election
    November, ’09–$2300 to the “Hillary Clinton For President” campaign
    $1700 to the “Hillory Clinton For President” campaign the day before the one above
    October, ’09–$2400 to Charlie Crist for Senate
    NOTE; No contributions were given to Marco Rubio at any time!
    $2400 (another $2400) to Charlie Crist in the primary
    NOTE: “So he bet against Rubio twice.” as Mark Levin says.
    May,’09–$2000 to Chuck Schumer in the primary
    NOTE: $2400 to the Harry Reid campaign, “Friends For Harry Reid

    He did not once give contributions to Marco Rubio, although he did give money to John McCain and some other Republicans. Who knows if they’re conservative? Mark Levin says he, himself, has been a conservative for 40 years, and does not remember Trump doing a “damn thing.” He says, “During the last two years, when many of you (the Tea Party) were spending resources and time caring about your country; engaging, trying to deal with an out-of-control president and out of control congress that was destroying your country; spending your own money to go to (Tea Party) rallies; spending your own money to set up websites; you the Paul and Paulette Reveres, what was Donald Trump doing? Did he go to a single (Tea Party) rally? Did he contribute to a single Tea Party cause, while he was spreading around his contributions?” He says he hasn’t done a “damn thing.” Now he wants everyone to think he’s a Tea Party activist. Donald Trump’s contributions mentioned above were given during the heat of Tea Party battles.

    In his book, “America We Deserve”, Trump writes”We must have universal health care.” “I’m a conservative on most issues, but a liberal on this one. We should not hear so many stories of families ruined by health care expenses.” he said. And wrote,”Doctors might be paid less than they are now, as in the Canada, but they will be able to treat more patients, because of the reduction in their paperwork.” So he wants a Canadian-style health care system. Is that what we want? Does that sound like a candidate willing to repeal Obamacare? Trump will appear on every radio and TV show (which is why he’s so popular), but he won’t show up on the Mark Levin show. Levin feels it’s because of these extreme beliefs that he doesn’t want to be questioned about. And many other hosts are too star-struck to question him.

    This is what Trump says about Nancy Pelosi, “Well, you know, when she got in, and was named Speaker, I met her and I’m very impressed by her. I think she’s a very impressive person. I like her a lot.” Trump, on the other hand, hated George Bush, and was disappointed and surprised that Pelosi didn’t try to impeach him. He thought George Bush was the “worst President in the history of this country,” a “liar” and “evil” until he appeared on Hannity on Fox News just a few nights ago. THEN he said Obama was the “worst President” in the history of our country, and that before Obama, it was Carter. So he lied to Hannity and his conservative audience. He was very happy and impressed when Obama became President.

    He’s milk toast when it comes to Paul Ryan’s budget. He doesn’t believe that Republicans should “take the lead” and that we need a “consensus.” Does this sound like someone that is willing to repeal the massive spending of Obamacare and the trillions upon trillions that this pretense of a President is spending? Think twice, people. Just because this guy questions Obama’s birth certificate, and is opposed to China does mean anything. Look at the WHOLE RECORD of this man–not just a couple of points. Don’t be duped.

    Where was Donald Trump during the Wisconsin battles? Did he say anything or give contributions to the Justice running for re-elction–the one the union was fighting? The justice that was fortunate enough to win against the union’s millons? Donald was silent, and no where to be seen, but on the campaign trail, talking about himself.

    One last story, to quote Mark Levin,”Do you remember that story many many years ago…of that little house, in Atlantic City, on that block. And a casino went to public officials to try and get it condemned for quote ‘public purpose?’ Remember all that? Remember they had to build the casino around the house? The lady wouldn’t get out of the house. She was represented by the Institute For Justice. And they tried every trick in the book to condemn that house. You know who ‘they’ is?…Donald Trump.” He also says, and I couldn’t say it better. “Ladies and gentlement, you better damn well think this one through. I know the man’s entertaining. I know he’s charismatic. I know he knows business. I know he knows that. But I’ll prefer to call him not Mr. Trump, but ‘Mr. Chump.’ And those of us who support him, not me, you, ‘Chump.’ I’ll be proven correct about this. No brag just fact. The evidence is there. Right there in front of you. The nation faces a perelous future, if we don’t turn things around. I don’t have time for circus acts. They’re entertaining. If I want to turn on TV, I’ll watch it. But I’m not going to get in the ring, I’ll tell you that. Not with the clowns.” And I agree. Anyone can listen to any of Mark Levin’s shows for free on his site. I recommend you listen and learn the facts from this person. He talks about all the candidates and tell it like it is.
