A Trump -nado Hits Laredo – Big Media, GOP Establishment Worst Hit

The Trump has landed. Trumpnado continues. Yes – the massive Donald Trump plane has landed in Laredo. Surrounded by Latinos, sharpshooter Donald Trump pulls a John Wayne and moseys on down Rick Perry way. Two birds, or three birds, with one stone: Trump hits Perry, Trump hits on his biggest issue, Trump grabs the spotlight and smothers every other candidate. Triple Trumpnado!!!

In 1992 Bill Clinton was behind George H.W. Bush, and both of them were losers to the #1 H. Ross Perot. Did Bill Clinton whine? No, Bill Clinton put on dark shades, grabbed a saxophone, and went on the Arsenio Hall show and made his own luck. That’s how its done.

Are Republicans/conservatives who hate on the Trump as smart and brave as Bill Clinton? No, it’s whine all the time.

Whine all the time: Glenn Beck has turned his show into a “Trump-free zone”. In other words if you don’t like the news ban the news.

Glenn Beck is taking a page from the totalitarian left Huffington Post which has banned Trump to it’s “entertainment” coverage (the dummies don’t realize that entertainment sections are more popular with the public than political pages).

Whine all the time: GOP donors wanted Bush, Rubio, and Walker to boycott debates unless Trump was disqualified. Just try and ban Trump from the debates. He’s just the #1 guy in the GOP polls right now. The biggest reason to watch the August 6 debate has become Donald Trump. Donald Trump eating pizza with Sarah Palin opposite the GOP debate would get more viewers.

Whine all the time: AFL-CIO Controlled Union Intervenes, Cancels Trump’s Border Tour Planned by Local Agents. Agent Garza confirmed to Breitbart Texas that the national union had stepped in and insisted that the Laredo local back out of honoring Trump with the border tour. Latino Agent Garza wanted to guide Trump but he cannot be seen to tell the truth. This only helps Trump prove his points about what is happening to this country.

Why is Trump such a winner? Because he puts himself into win/win situations and avoids win/lose scenarios. AFL-CIO blocks Border Patrol agents from Trump’s border tour Trumpnado – Trump gets another illustration of what he is talking about so bravely.

Why is Trump such a winner? Consider what we wrote recently:

Shorter version of the Republican National Committee statement: “We want Donald Trump out of the nomination race before the August 6 debate and we will do whatever we have to do to drive Donald Trump out of the race and to Hell with our supposed role of being neutral.”

Where have we seen this before? Yeah, Hillary Clinton 2008. [snip]

The Democratic Party establishment succeeded in gifting Barack Obama the nomination and Hillary and Bill Clinton wandered about like drunks trying to figure out what truck hit them.

Which brings us to Donald Trump. Donald Trump better realize that he is up against the Republican establishment and that what the establishment wants the establishment gets.

So does Donald Trump realize he is up against the Republican establishment? It appears he does. Trump: If RNC isn’t “fair” to me, I’ll run as an independent. Boom! Trumpnado. If the RNC is not neutral, Trump… keeps the threat alive. [Hillary, are you watching this and learning?] Yesterday Trump was backing away from an independent run. Keep them unsure. Keep them guessing. Piaget feeding schedules anyone?

The fear-mongering conspiracy squirrel talk that Donald Trump is a Hillary plant is epic dumb. Hillary2016 would love to run against Jeb Bush. Why? Because Jeb versus Hillary means a Hillary win. Against Trump, all bets are off. 2015 polls won’t matter. Trumpnado threatens all.

Donald Trump has the Republican establishment on the run. We need our own Hill-nado. Hillary Clinton should realize the Obama Dimocrat establishment needs her and she does not need them. Until she realizes that she will be a loser.

  1. Not one of the most informative press conferences, but Trump certainly creates a lot of attention. For those of us who want Hillary to win, despite our disappointment so far in how she has run her campaign (like 2008 on steroids), we should hope Trump runs as a third party as this clears the path to the Presidency for her.

  2. Trump…not Hillary, speaks for America..Hillary hasn’t a clue, she’s still wandering in the desert like Moses, and like Moses, she will not see her beloved home…

  3. While Sharknado 3 was on last night, Trumpnado was on CNN with Anderson Cooper. The full interview:

  4. Hillary must not pay much attention to Big Pink, if she did, she would see that some of her strongest supporters are cheering on Trump and sick of waiting for her to be authentic.

    We haven’t waited 7 years for nothing, Hillary you are running a terrible campaign…the far left is not the majority of the Democratic party!!!!!!!

    Obama is a failure, step away from his policies, speak with your own voice, fire all the people on your team that are trying to make you into Obama III before it’s too late.

    Pay more attention to Trump and see that he is acting like a leader, not a political puppet.

  5. I like how Trumped just told that reporter “You’re finished” ….it will be interesting to see how he handles questions in a more confined setting like the debates…

  6. notice how everyone avoids mentioning the drug cartels…as if they do not exist and the reality of them bringing drugs into the USA across the border is not happening

    I heard someone on CNN after Donald’s presser going on and on about all the improvements at the border and how everything is going so well…

    duh…el chapo just escaped thru Mexican tunnels …what kind of work is he in and where does most of his product go?

    and notice how the media never dares to ask or follow up with those questions…

    Donald is so on the money about “our leaders” they are stupid or on the take…or just wimps…

    I worry about his safety…I really do…


    look at these stats…


  7. Shadowfax, they didn’t listen to us in 2008. Look what happened. And in 2008 we had some real power players imploring the campaign to listen to us.

    If they don’t listen to us in 2012 the entire Clinton apparatus goes down. If the GOP wins the Clinton Foundation will be shot down and Chelsea will not be able to keep things going ’cause she won’t run ever.

    As to the odd support for Trump expressed in Big Pink, you should see the other guys. Check out the comments sections of the websites we link to. The GOP websites attack Trump and the comments sections are in rebellion. Here’s a sample:

    Screw GOP donors.

    We all know why they hate Trump’s surge: they love illegal immigration. They want more of that great “cheap” foreign labor that’s being subsidized by billions of taxpayer dollars.

    The last thing they want is to have those suckers . . . er, I mean taxpayers . . . who are paying the bill start to question the wisdom of continuing the current deliberately-dysfunctional system, which enriches the GOP donor class at the expense of the American middle class.

    Screw GOP donors, and screw any GOP candidate who goes along with their attempts to shut down debate on the illegal immigration issue.

    There are others such as these:

    The fear is so thick you came smell it, almost see it in the air….
    I want to see Trump take Bush apart in the debate.”

    “Here’s a little inside hint for analpundit and the rest of the GOPe pundits in here:

    That “Third Party” threat is an inevitable reality.

    It will happen.

    Many of us made up our minds shortly after the 2012 reelection of the purple-lipped Chicago-Jesus, and solidified our convictions with each predictable congressional GOPe betrayal thereafter.

    We are already Third Party. But until that course is firmly established – we will do everything we can to play the inside spoilers. We will volunteer in the Republican campaigns, infiltrate, sabotage, betray, and create every type of chaotic horsefvckery we can dream of to assure this putrid Party is rendered impotent with the wreckage of its irrelevance.

    If you RINO’s really think you’re just going to walk away from all of this – think again. It’s your Party now – and we will make you own it for what it is: a mere puppet faction of the DNC. A bought and paid for prop meant to present a faux contender to the Demosocialists third world election-ruse…”

    There is a unity of opinion from both sides converging and Trump is the stick everyone is using.

  8. I also hope…as others here do…that Donald comes to that debate prepared and projecting his ‘master of the universe’ mature, leadership style…and has some content to substantiate what he is saying so that he does not open himself up to the critics as just ‘bluster’

    if he brings his intelligent, organized, prepared, mature…and yes, humorous side to that debate…and leaves the personal attacks aside he will undoubtedly go up in the polls…again…he is a master of the element of surprise

    I hope he comes ready to impress and blow everyone away with his intelligence that sometimes gets overshadowed by his mouth…his problem is he is sometimes thinking way ahead of what he is saying…


    btw…The Donald will be interviewed tomorrow morning on Morning Joe…that should be interesting…

  9. Admin…I know I don’t have to say this…but I think most of us are in agreement we wanted all this enthusiasm and excitement and support…and ‘ready for the fight’ to be going to Hillary right now…

    but it is she, at this juncture, that is abandoning us and leaving us “without a ride home” so to speak…

    if she would just start acting like a Clinton…Hillary Clinton…again…maybe things would change…

    but it is a big no to O3 or worse…she is putting herself in a box that is going to be difficult to get out of…

  10. S. we wanted Hillary to announce much later this year. This would have kept her from the mistakes she is making. As long as Hillary does not realize that the party needs her more than she needs the party she will continue to stumble with the silly strategy appealing to the Obama cult and the demographics producers of a situation comedy want, but not a political party.

    The premise of Hillary2016 is that what is said now can be massaged after she gets the nomination. But… Youtube. And every day more damage is done (check out today’s big story about Hillary saying white people are afraid of blacks with hoodies).

    A tilt to the center in 2016 will be too late.

  11. Another example of what we’re talking about from the Trump hating conservative website Ace of Spades. It’s about the donors wanting the candidates to unite and demand that Trump be excluded from the debates. Written by Ace himself:


    Their big idea was to convince Jeb!, Walker, and Rubio to announce they were boycotting any debate in which Trump is present, in order, I guess, to make Trump even more popular and elect him president.

    There are two things that can happen with Trump:

    1. He can either fizzle or be beaten by other candidates noting his prior support for partial birth abortion, or

    2. He can actually win.

    Let me just note that if the other candidates cannot beat Trump, given his prior support of liberal candidates and causes, and still refuse to treat the immigration issue as anything more than lie-to-the-base-and-stay-true-to-the-US-Chamber, then they deserve to lose, and I will laugh and laugh as I cast my vote for Trump in both the primary and the general.

    Come what may — come what may.

    Either you fools and eunuchs know how to play a man’s game, or you don’t.

    And if you don’t — then to hell with you.

  12. There is a unity of opinion from both sides converging and Trump is the stick everyone is using.

    Absolutely Admin, Repblican’s that support Trump are acting just like PUMAs. Party Unity My Ass.

    Both parties only care about control, collecting candidate donations and staying in power. To Hell with American voters. They buy and dictate what is said in the Media.

    Both parties need to be burned to the ground and someone like Trump is the man to help do it.

    Is Hillary hiding in a closet, is she starting to read from a teleprompter yet?

    She is going to either go down in flames or get into the fight with her own perspective.

    No one, absolutely NO ONE likes this timid, faux Hillary.

  13. The Dimocratic coalition is not what it was in 08.
    I think Trump as athird party candidate can get a significant portion of the AA vote. The gay vote has SSM so there will be far less fervor there.
    Legal immigrants resent illegals getting a pass.
    All of the women I know are appalled by the PP videos and hillary is silent.
    Many died in the wool democrats who would never vote R might give Trump a second look.

  14. The Border Patrol agents that had invited Donald Trump to visit them on the border announced they were pulling out of the presidential candidate’s Thursday plans in Laredo, Texas — a move the Trump campaign described as a silencing from superiors in D.C. who don’t want people to know things on the border are “every bit as bad as Mr. Trump has been saying.”

    (our democracy…and unions…in action…10 minutes before Trump boards the plane…)

    “After careful consideration of all the factors involved in this event and communicating with members of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) at the National level, it has been decided by Local 2455 to pull out of all events involving Donald Trump,” the union said in a statement.

  15. I am glad that Donald is keeping the option of a third party run open.

    That is called “leverage.”

    And for RINOS who want to ban him from the debates.

    The question the party as a whole must chew on must chew on

    Looks something like this:

    Q: Would you rather have a lightening rod like the Donald

    Inside the tent pissing out?

    Or outside the tent pissing in?

  16. I just love how Trump takes it to the Lions den..Hillary did that once..
    I can’t agree with Admin on this, I think it’s too late for Hillary to change her stripes. No one will trust her.
    She has made her bed in the den of snakes, and I am afraid that is where it will end…

    The illegal immigrant economic issue is systemic. Since we do not have a balanced budget, their dole goes on the National Debt so they are actually destroying the nation.

    Yea, they trickle down to low paid illegal immigrants and destroy the nation.

  18. Those of you that were able to see Trump on tv in Texas…was his interview longer on tv than the short one above where he said, “You’re done!”?

  19. Off topic but I caught a snippet of jeb junior(rubio) on Fox he was going on about entitlements. I know people that had to cash in retirements due to job loss and who carry no debt but will depend on Social Security as some are in their late 50’s and do not have time to rebuild. How can the argument be made to give illegals benefits when the boomers are struggling. We give more foreign aid than any other country and we won’t fix that system? The schools that the kids get free breakfast and lunch were built by the seniors. Their property taxes still pay for the schools. 40 to 60 years of playing by the rules and we make them live in fear while taking in millions of dependent people.
    Same thing with our vets. An illegal can walk into amy ER and get top notch treatment. The women and men who served us all languish and die. We provide housing for illegals but our vets endure homelessness.
    Why can’t the Republicans leave entitlements alone. I know the answer it is to get their greedy grubs on commissions. Why can’t they leave that issue alone it alienates people across the spectrum. My understanding of SS is limited but the rubio plan strikes me as obamacare for retirement. Big companies raking in hundreds of billions off the middle class with no benefit to the working stiffs.
    Raise taxes on those who worked hard to achieve success to fulfill illegals dreams and line the coffers of RINOs.
    TRUMP seems to be looking out for America. Dimocrates as I see it want some sureal utopia in which Steinle’s death is you have to break some eggs to make an omelet. FUCK OFF.
    Sorry for the rant. I cannot see voting for anyone that does not put America first. The tears in NH had me fooled. She is not the woman I supported in 2008. Was she ever?
    Apologies I will refrain from posting her again as I am not a troll, but to paraphrase hrc I did not leave her she left me. Ponder for a moment had her ambition not exceeded her claimed crying lies in NH and she had an ounce of TRUMP in her would we be in the state we are in?
    I’ll still read as even when I do not agree I find admin and commenters well worth my time.

  20. This is the Hillary I want….

    Bill Clinton says Hillary once told him she’d never run for office

    Dylan Stableford
    Senior editor
    July 23, 2015

    From article….

    The future president told the future first lady-turned-senator-turned-secretary of state-turned-presidential candidate that he wanted her to get into politics instead.

    “Oh, my God,” Hillary responded. “I’ll never run for office. I’m too aggressive, and nobody will ever vote for me.”

    Will the real Hillary Clinton please stand up?

    Hillary 2016?

  21. Correction
    I find the personal insights and acumen of admin and others refreshing but a heads up trolling for Cruz solidifies an opposition to him that I didn’t even have. I have written about Trump because way back the Donald was a topic here and I tested the waters.
    Flat out campaigning for Cruz on a Hill website drives people away from him. You do a disservice to him by being in your face. Especially here as you are not dealing with a site that collapsed under o pressure even 7/8 years later. I was open to Cruz(before TPP) but your incessant plugging echoes the obots of yesteryear.

  22. Henry:

    The problem with Social Security is two-fold:

    1) The government spent the money that was paid into the system and replaced it with IOUs. So, the benefits being paid out now must come from current receipts.

    2) Just like a Ponzi scheme, this would be OK if enough young people are paying in, but the baby boom population bulge means that there are rapidly increasing numbers of retirees and not enough workers paying into the system.

    Any shortfall has to be made up from general government tax revenues. As you know, the government is broke.

    It’s not a question of whether or not we would like to keep Social Security as is for the next 100 years. The simple fact of the matter is that there isn’t enough money to pay those benefits. Can Social Security be fixed? Sure. There are any number of actuarial changes that would help. The Medicare health care costs for seniors is the more disastrous problem.

    This problem is not unique to the US. It’s a worldwide problem. Not enough young people to support the increasing numbers of old people. Post-war baby booms. Increasing life expectancy. Lower birth rates. For example, the current birth rate in the US is too low to maintain the current population. One recent study shows the US has been below the “break even point” on birthrates since 2007.


    What I find so frustrating about the Washington cartel: It is so obvious that there is a pressing need to cut government spending. So why not just automatically whack low hanging fruit. Catch Planned Parenthood trafficking in baby parts? No brainer. That’s an easy half-billion dollar cut. Just do it. If nothing else, it will make other government funded bureaucracies a little more circumspect.

  23. I still keep hearing about major global economic depression emerging over these next 3 months.
    If that happens, Trump will be president.

    They’re dead politically after this. Its only a matter of time. They can get the money they need for abortions, murder, traficing in body parts, living large, and being politically relevant on somebody else’s nickel. Maybe Dr. Mengele’s family will help support them.

  25. The arrogance of Beck, PuffHo, and the rest of MSM and the political establishment!!

    Trump is an American, fully qualified to run for president, and he has a right to do so. When our kids are very young, we tell them they can be anything they want to be – even president – if they work hard and believe in themselves. Well, so much for that sweet little bit of bull shit. Apparently, you can’t run for president unless MSM and the party leaders like you – even if millions of Americans do.

    Let the Repubs throw him under the bus. They’ll regret it.

  26. War hero McCain is polling . . . nicely.

    One quarter of the party thinks he is a douche bag.

    Not too shabby . . . for a war hero.

    Whenever he is introduced in a group setting

    McCain staffies tell the hose

    Make sure you mention that he is a war hero

    Because if you don’t he will.

    And if you do he still will tell the world he is war hero.


    Poll: 22% of the GOP agree McCain is a douche
    Trump does not hurt GOP with Hispanics
    Streiff @ Red State blog

    In what has to be a disconcerting twist for the GOP establishment who tried to use Donald Trumps contretemps with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 60% to run him out of the race, a new poll shows that any damage that Trump suffered was in the mind of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 50% and among the K Street opponents of Trump:

    PPP’s newest national poll finds that Donald Trump is likely facing at least some fallout from his comments about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 60% over the weekend. Nevertheless we do find him narrowly leading the national field in our survey, which went into the field on Monday. Trump gets 19% to 17% for Scott Walker, 12% for Jeb Bush, 10% for Ben Carson and Marco Rubio, 8% for Mike Huckabee, 4% each for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, Carly Fiorina, and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86%, 3% each for Chris Christie and John Kasich, 1% for Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum, and less than 1% each for Jim Gilmore, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) 50%, and George Pataki.

    Trump’s lead comes despite the fact that only 22% of Republicans agree with the comments he made about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 60% over the weekend compared to 50% who disagree.

    In other words, as many Republicans think McCain is a douche as are supporting Jeb Bush + Ben Carson. In fact, more Republicans think McCain is a douche than actually support Trump. Half may disagree but half either agree or don’t care enough to have an opinion.

    Before we go any further… I am not a Trump supporter. But I do agree with Erick, that if he is the nominee I will support him and do so more enthusiastically than I did either McCain or Romney.

    This result should scare the bejeezus out of a lot of people… some of my colleagues among them. It should really be a wake-up call to GOP donors and apparatchiks who are trying to use mean-girl tactics learned in the middle school bathroom to hurt Trump:

    Many national Republican officials are increasingly resigned to Mr. Trump’s looming presence. At a meeting of the Republican Governors Association this week in Aspen, Colo., donors and operatives mused about how to prevent him from hijacking the debate.

    One idea that came up was to urge three leading candidates — Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor; Mr. Walker; and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 91% of Florida — to band together and state that they would not participate in any debate in which Mr. Trump was present, using his refusal to rule out a third-party bid as a pretext for taking such a hard line. The thinking, according to a Republican involved in the conversations, was that the lesser-funded prospects who have been eclipsed by Mr. Trump would follow suit, and the TV networks airing the debates would be forced to bar Mr. Trump in order to have a full complement of candidates.

    But none of the campaigns have shown any appetite for such solidarity, for reasons ranging from their strategic interests and not wanting to make Mr. Trump a martyr, to fear of making an enemy of Fox News, the preferred cable network of conservatives and the host of the first debate.

    The more of these little games the GOP Establishment plays the more adamant and entrenched Trump’s support will become. It these people want to get rid of him, they need to start ignoring him or start talking about the issues he’s talking about that are drawing crowds. And if they don’t want him to run as a third party candidate they had better lay off these shenanigans and try to win the primary on their own merits. You don’t even need to be a Trump supporter to be in favor of that.

  27. Comment to the above article:

    Trump is making the Republican Establishment consultant class lose its mind.

    Today, a GOP Establishment consultant in my state ended a screeching, spittle-shower blog attack on Trump with the comment that Trump’s supporters in the GOP are either “morons” or “really, really hate brown people.”

    That is exactly what will generate more votes for Trump, but the consultant couldn’t control himself. This Trump disturbance in an awesome force of nature, which the elites cannot stop, but can inadvertently keep alive and growing.

  28. Another comment in kind:

    no one is taking advantage of the media storms Trump whips up and pressing the bureaucrats over their behavior, with exception of Ted Cruz

    If they don’t learn fast they are going to hand this primary to Trump.

    And another:

    The stupid here hurts:

    “One idea that came up was to urge three leading candidates — Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor; Mr. Walker; and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 91% of Florida — to band together and state that they would not participate in any debate in which Mr. Trump was present, using his refusal to rule out a third-party bid as a pretext for taking such a hard line. The thinking, according to a Republican involved in the conversations, was that the lesser-funded prospects who have been eclipsed by Mr. Trump would follow suit, and the TV networks airing the debates would be forced to bar Mr. Trump in order to have a full complement of candidates.”

    Here’s a better idea. List the morons who suggested this. The herd doesn’t need any of their DNA in the collective gene pool.

    And another:

    t has been said that the Republican party and especially the conservative base has been infiltrated/overrun by ‘crazies’. to that I say this: When you achieve historic victories at the state and national level (congress) in back to back elections and yet you’ve seen the GOP leadership GIVE Obama most of what he wanted, it makes you feel crazy. We’re not talking little things, but Iran deals and Obamacare funding and amnesty. I don’t think these people realize these are not ‘normal’ times. These feel like existential threats for America from within… and NO ONE appears to be fighting (with some exceptions, of course). But we have to fight the GOPe AND the Democrats… Trump is a live grenade. He could go third party and I don’t trust him. But those idiots in the establishment better channel that anger or they’ll be destroyed by it.

    One more:

    I’ve not been a Trump fan in the past, but the full-court press by some even more douchier GOP-E politicians and consultants — and sadly by a few Republicans I previously respected — is pulling me toward rolling the dice with him. I’m intrigued by his meeting with Ted Cruz, who’s my favorite candidate. That and the fact that Cruz hasn’t jumped on board the hate train against him, gave him some cred with me.

  29. I lied one more post
    What does she stand for? I have no idea. Planned Parenthood seems to own her. Those videos are vile and a half a billion dollars tax dollars goes there. Why if everyone is covered do we need to spend a 5 followed but tons of zeroes to fund a chop shop? How are Jefferson and Madison removed from Democratic dinners but Sanger is applauded.
    I would love to hear one reason to support her. I stood on highways with signs, in parks(often enduring being called racist) went to phone banks, took people to voting stations, donated. Had lawn signs wore buttons. I gave up hours of my life to her. She took no time jumping on the O wagon.
    I gave her the benefit of the doubt but the Arab Spring thing finished me. I may not be the brightset bulb in the candalabra but that entire theme of social media fueling a revolution. What a load of bs. Yeah sure people that can’t eat,as we were told make 5 a day and still can tweet. What a load. The protests were organized. Guess it was just chance that a Facebook founder was there. Horse shit. Both parties are enamored of Hollywierd and think they can script a story. Baltimore, Treyvon, Ferguson flag, caitlyn jenner, Fort Hood. Both parties think we are grubers and they can frame a story.
    Bland is just the latest but Hillary spoke up about it before any facts were known. FUCK her ALL LIVES MATTER. She is pandering to a slim part of one or two constituencies and throwing white straight middle class/blue collar men under the bus. I am not straight but as anyone with an infants concept of child psychology knows delayed gratification is a healthy way to raise a child. You say okay screaming brat you can get what you want now or you can wait and get more. Your choice. Teaching a kid to defer immediate gratification is essential. They learn to set goals
    I see the dims as having become a party that just hands out treats. Rewarding at times but then you look over and see the kids with better treats and want them then they become angry that others have more.
    I have been coming here since chickee chickee boom boom was two. She has a different life than other kids. Going into 4th grade, got her orange belt in teakwon do, had a ballet solo, got MVP on her softball team, straight A’s, reading Lord of the Rings. I have a dictionary in every room and two etymology ones. We explore language and what words really mean. I ask her how does it make you feel when you say ugly words or hear other people use them. Her response not good. I talk to her I do not command. I am against gay people creating a child. My friends say I am a hypocrit. No I argue if you say it is natural to be gay then it is nature saying lets stop producing. Never try to turn climate change against pro I want a baby gays.
    I love the brat but she is not mine why not adopt if you feel like you have so much to give. Good luck once you care for a kid. Worries never stop. Rest of your life is fear coupled with dread. My point is I believe the best place for a child is with a mother and father. My case it was extreme neglect. I have my opinions on transgender people and artificial insemination and every political troll even in public resorts to calling me names. I am allowed to think Bruce Jenner is a man but if anyone hears you saying it you get black balled. I would never discriminate but that is not enough I have to embrace.

  30. How do we give away hundreds of billions in aid to illegal workers. Give neary a trillion away to needy countries. Every fucking night as I battle insomnia I listen to this fat guy talk about unclean water. Where does this money go? Water filtration systems after hundreds of billions of dollars shoud have been done

  31. Wow. This is how you filibuster Chris Mathews. This is really awesome stuff…

    Best quote: “I’m enjoying watching Hillary Clinton explain to the voters how she’s just as much of a socialist as Bernie Sanders…”
    Its not easy appearing before the Supreme Court as an attorney. You must match your wits with nine minds of average or better intelligence, and in some cases like Scalia and Alito brilliant ones. You study, you prepare, you figure which justices are likely to support your position based on how they have ruled in the past and how the precedent that supports your position applies to this case. You also figure out which justices will oppose you, and the precedent they will rely on which you must compare and contrast with the present case. It is no easy task. I have seen attorneys go to the dias and make their case to the Justices. Their presentation were sometimes good, in most cases fair. The presentation of the government case in the Obamacare decision for example, by Hollywood attorney and erstwhile solicitor general was marginal. By contrast, the presentation of the Bush case by Ted Olson was superb. Ted is a brilliant lawyer. And so is Ted Cruz who appeared seven times before the Supreme Court on behalf of the State of Texas and prevails.

    Suffice it to say, it is harder to be in the cauldron where nine minds of mediocre to brilliant pedigree are firing partisan questions at you, than it is to have one motor mouthed lightweight like Matthews trying to take you on. It showed in spades in that interview. Cruz schooled Matthews. The only disturbing part for me is a sense that I have that Cruz and Matthews like each other. I have no good answer for that, so I will let it pass without further ado.

  33. Did Barry just stick the knife in Hillary and twist it:

    From tomorrow’s NY Times:

    Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account
    JULY 23, 2015

    WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

    The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

    And here’s the shiv:

    The memos were provided to The New York Times by a senior government official.

    Senior government official? As in Valerie Jarrett? Or Joe Biden? In any case, Hillary needs to pull the knife out and get the wound stitched up. With friends like this, who needs enemies?

  34. wbboei:

    My impression of the Cruz interview with Matthews is that Cruz has started his debate prep for August 6th. He is relentless at turning any question into one of his talking points.


    Hillary getting stabbed in the back tonight by a senior administration official could be an existential threat to her campaign. Not so much for the call for a criminal investigation, but for the appearance that Obama has decided to cut her.

  35. The code pink tape was equally revealing.

    Could you imagine in your wildest dreams McConnell, Reid, Pelosi or Boehner going into a hostile crowd like that, keeping their cool, making those points? Not gonna happen. They have not got it in them. Each of them, in their own individual way, relies on the system to give them their power. Put them in a hostile setting like that where they have to do it themselves without the benefit of hierachy and status and they would wilt on the vine. Boehner might be the exception. With a Lucky Strike in his mouth, a glass of Johnny Walker Black in his hand, he might go into that crowd skirt chasing. Or send Sammy out there to do the trolling. But that would be the extent of it. And, by the way, no other member of Congress other than Mike Lee, or Jeff Sessions, or Tom Cotton could do it either. Maybe Langford from Oklahoma or Purdue from Georgia. But the rest of those schmucks? No fucking way. Boxer and Feinstein would get on their broomsticks.

    And now we turn to that believer of wisdom, truth and the Iranian deal. Jaw jaw jaw is better than war war war, and if China and Russia agree to a deal in the Security Council then it is all good. She and her boisterous accomplice are damned sure there is nothing to be learned from history and human nature with respect to improvident agreement. It is the only alternative to war. If you oppose this agreement then it follows as day follows night that you want war. There is no middle ground because if there was, then Obama, being the brilliant man he is, or says he is would have found it. A compelling argument? Well, whatever the fuck it is, Cruz makes mincemeat of it. But the coup de gras to all this is that after Cruz rebutted her claims tactfully as she stood there nodding her head, she later appeared and demonstrated that she was the proud possessor of that rare skill of listening intently and learning nothing.

  36. Looks like whoever stuck the knife in Hillary’s back gave the Inspectors General memo to the Wall Street Journal, too:

    WASHINGTON—An internal government review of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email archive has revealed that hundreds of those messages contain potentially classified information.

    A joint memorandum from the inspectors general of the Department of State and the intelligence community viewed by The Wall Street Journal found that an investigation discovered “hundreds of potentially classified emails within the collection” of Mrs. Clinton’s emails.

  37. Looks like it was the Inspector General for the State Dept and the Inspector General for the Director of National Intelligence (Clapper) who called for the criminal investigation.

  38. Hwv
    Give me a break you ae Cruz night and day all you do is make yell Trump louder. I disadain Cruz because you are an idiot.

  39. Looks like it was the Inspector General for the State Dept and the Inspector General for the Director of National Intelligence (Clapper) who called for the criminal investigation.
    If memory serves:

    1. Clapper is head of NSA

    2. Clapper appeared before Congress

    3. He took the oath to tell the truth.

    4. Breach of that oath was perjury

    5. Perjury in this context is a federal crime

    6. Perjury in this context is grounds for prosecution

    7. Perjury in this context is grounds for expulsion

    8. Clapper was subpoenaed to appear before Congress

    9. He was asked whether his agency was collecting data on (all American Citizens)

    10.At that point, McCain stopped playing his video, and assume his war hero demeanor

    11.Lindsey Graham stopped making moon eyes at the Sargent At Arms and snuggled closer to McCain

    12. And as 80 million Americans watched Clapper responded–no sir.

    13. Then, after a moment of thought he amended his answer to say–not wittingly.

    14. Then came the Snowden leak which revealed that statement was false

    15. That the US government was in fact collecting such data,

    16. Therefore spying on Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment

    17. Like Heckle and Jeckel, mad man McCain and Light in the loafers Lindsey responded

    18. That’s okay, its national security, and if people are innocent they have nothing to worry about

    19. Feinstein raised no objection until she found out that they were spying on her as head of that committee.

    20. Clapper then appeared before Congress and apologized for misspeaking

    So you are telling me that this bald headed lying cocksucker who violates the fourth amendment, lies to congress, was never prosecuted for perjury and still has his job has opened a criminal investigation to determine whether Hillary missing emails were a breach of security? Is that what you are saying?

  40. That Clapper still has his job, and issues himself a fishing licence here sua sponte, should make us all feel very secure.

  41. …sure enough…Already in action….

    Gerald Delemus, Chairman for “Veterans for Trump” the current spokesperson speaking on behalf of Trump on networks and cable…


    take note…next we will se “Latinos for Trump” “Hispanics for Trump”

    **********the stage is being set…

    and as time goes on…”Democrats for Trump”


    imho…The Donald is following ‘The Bill Clinton Playbook”…Donald “gets it”


    the playbook Hillary should pick up, dust off and start reviewing and re-enacting with her own imprint…

  42. wbboei…Henry Cuellar is caving on the immigration issue…

    just watching him speaking with “You’re finsihed” Joes Diaz-Balart…they cannot understand what in the world Trump is talking about that is dangerous about the borders…they laugh, is it the dangerous mexican food that scares him?

    again…not one single word out of either of them regarding all the drugs and cartels using the border as their private transportation system…

    Diaz is forced to say that he himself, in broad daylight, is seeing illegals cross the border frequently while he is there but nothing to be afraid of…

    liars…they are either fools, paid off or scared to death to say one word…



    and evidently there was alot of action behind the scenes that even ABC witnessed yesterday with illegals but no one reported it…

    I am sure Donald must have tapes he will use when needed…


    Are the Democrats selectively blind? WTH?

  43. wbboei:

    Yes. That Clapper. The interesting thing here is not that two Inspector Generals investigated e-mail lapses and called for a DOJ probe. The IGs, are to some extent, independent watchdogs. The interesting thing is which “senior government official” gave the IG’s memos to the NYTIMES and WashPo. And why?

    Kerry’s dept and Clapper’s dept would have been the two agencies that knew about the IG memos, although this has all the earmarks of a White House hit, especially now that we know there was a coordinated leak to the two biggest newspapers.

  44. Third possible suspect: The Justice Department. They are telling the press that they have received a criminal referral in the matter from the IGs, but have not decided whether to pursue it.

    I like how Trumped just told that reporter “You’re finished” ….it will be interesting to see how he handles questions in a more confined setting like the debates…

    I am excited.. like a Kid looking for Christmas!!! 😀

  46. Feels as if Hillary were getting ready to move away from protecting Obama and maybe even tell it like it is and he may be sending a threatening message to her, “Shut up or I’ll bring you down legally and ruin you and Bill financially. You think you had legal bills back when, just wait till I get through with you so don’t think you can pull a Trump on me.” Maybe BO had one of those “lunches” again with George Jr. and Karl so they could get everything coordinated and how to leak it before heading off to “his homeland”.

    Why does hwc always come across as Bwc?

    Don’t know what Bwc is, but amazing that we finally lose the multiple personality troll and the Cruz troll is back.

    I agree, the more Cruz crap he tosses on the blog, the more I hate Cruz. I don’t read any of the trolls posts, but I do see Cruz’s mug all over big pink and it makes me livid, just like all the stupid ass comments the troll makes.

  48. WashPo takes the vapors:


    Ted Cruz calls Mitch McConnell a liar on the Senate floor

    Firebrand Republican senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday rushed across a line rarely crossed on the Senate floor: He accused the leader of his party, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, of lying to his colleagues.

    “What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie,” Cruz said Friday morning. “We know now that when the majority leader looks us in the eyes and makes an explicit commitment, that he is willing to say things that he knows are false. That has consequences for how this body operates.”

  49. Henry, for me the interest in Cruz is personal. On the one hand I know the players, Cruz, McConnell and Boehner. In Cruz case, friends of mine in Texas convinced him to run. And the law firm he worked for at one point was also my law firm: Morgan Lewis and Bockius. In the case of McConnell and Boehner, I have done business with them, and in that connection, threw a fundraiser with Boeing and Microsoft for Mitch. So for me they are more than just names. Knowing them as I do, I wanted the lady who ran against McConnell in 2014 to win, because I knew what would happen if he became Majority Leader—betray voters for his donors. Ditto JB. There is just no mystery to it. So when Cruz calls them on the carpet for their treachery, lies and betrayal he speaks the truth and is on the side of the angels. And I feel the same way about Trump. How does this relate to Hillary? Well, I spent over a year of my life doing everything I could to get her elected, and I will spare you the history because it sounds self serving and is water under the bridge. But I never realized then what I do now, just how rigged the game is, and what we have seen in the last eight years is an astronomical increase in the level of corruption. But for that corruption, Hillary would have won and we would not have almost 100 million not working, 50 million on food stamps etc. But the situation is what it is, and there is no sense pretending. So when someone says that Trump is taking a wrecking ball to the establishment, I say Bravo, and when Obama speaks I reach for the mute button. And that is why I find merit in whatever is posted on Trump or Cruz. In terms of the largest issue facing the nation, the destruction of our nation by the elites, both of them are on our side. I really believe that. Whether you and others do is of course for you to decide.

  50. Politico says it was an “intelligence official” who stuck the knife in Hillary’s back:

    According to an intelligence official, I. Charles McCullough III, the Intelligence Community inspector general, earlier this month contacted the FBI about a “potential compromise of classified information” regarding Clinton’s email.

    The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said the referral to the FBI’s counterintelligence division did not request a probe into a specific individual but flagged that sensitive information appeared to have been disclosed outside the government.

    Looking like Clapper was the administration’s hit man.

  51. If this were not happening, then that Code Pink airhead would be right. Cruz is a demagogue. But if you look at the facts, you see he is speaking the truth, McConnell is doing the work of his donors and lying about it. As in the tale of the scorpion and the frog, for Mitch this is in his nature. And if it were not for Cruz, we would never know that he and his fellow RINOs are robbing the American People to pay off their donors. Henry, there’s value in this. It is important to hear what he is saying instead of dismissing him.

    Ted Cruz slams Congress over ‘corporate welfare'(5:25)
    On the Senate floor July 24, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) accused “career politicians” in Congress of “looting the tax payer to benefit wealthy, powerful corporations.” (AP

    Firebrand Republican senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday rushed across a line rarely crossed on the Senate floor: He accused the leader of his party, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, of lying to his colleagues.

    “What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie,” Cruz said Friday morning. “We know now that when the majority leader looks us in the eyes and makes an explicit commitment, that he is willing to say things that he knows are false. That has consequences for how this body operates.”

    Cruz’s remarks laid bare, in the most august of settings, simmering tensions between the activist wing of the Republican Party and the mainstream party establishment.

    Prompting Cruz’s outburst: McConnell’s move to set up amendment votes on a must-pass transportation bill. After senators voted to consider the bill, McConnell (R-Ky.) set up votes on two controversial measures — a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and a reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States — and did it in such a way that will make it difficult for other amendments to be considered.

    That move incensed Cruz — who had announced his intention to offer other amendments, and who, like many conservatives, strongly opposes the bank’s reauthorization, though it enjoys support from a supermajority of his Senate colleagues. While McConnell has personally spoken against Ex-Im reauthorization, Democrats said in June he had agreed to schedule an Ex-Im vote in order to get highly divisive trade legislation passed.

    But McConnell at the time denied that any deal had been struck, and Cruz said Friday the same assurance was given in a private Republican conference meeting:

    We had a Senate Republican lunch where I stood up and I asked the majority leader very directly, what was the deal that was just cut on [trade legislation, and was there a deal for the Export-Import Bank? It was a direct question. I asked the majority leader in front of all the Republican senators. The majority leader was visibly angry with me that I would ask such a question, and the majority leader looked at me and said, “There is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal.”

    “Like Saint Peter, he repeated it three times,” Cruz added.

    Senators generally refrain from impugning their colleagues on the floor — a practice codified in Senate Rule XIX: “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

    In recent weeks, McConnell had signaled that the transportation bill would be a likely vehicle for Ex-Im reauthorization. Before Cruz spoke, McConnell said he had not choice but to allow the Ex-Im vote, saying that bank supporters have “made it clear they’re ready to stop all other amendments if denied that opportunity.”

    “They have already proven they have the votes to back up the threat as well,” he said, referring a June 10 test vote showed 65 senators supporting Ex-Im reauthorization. “This presents a challenge for the senate and to opponents of the Ex-Im bank, like myself, in particular.”

    Cruz, a famously fierce opponent of the Affordable Care Act, was also not at all mollified by McConnell’s move to bring up a repeal vote — the first time that GOP priority has come to the Senate floor this year.

    In his speech Friday, Cruz called it “empty showmanship.”

    “We’ll have a vote on repealing Obamacare,” he said. “The Republicans will all vote yes; the Democrats will all vote no. It will be at a 60-vote threshold. It will fail. It will be an exercise in meaningless political theater.”

    McConnell spokesman Don Stewart declined to comment on Cruz’s remarks.

  52. The anger at McConnell is because McConnell said there was no deal on the Ex-Im Bank, only that any Senator can introduce any amendment to a bill. And, that McConnell has said that he opposes the Ex-Im Bank.

    Then, today, it wasn’t any Senator offering any amendment. McConnell personally introduced the Ex-Im Bank reauthorization amendment and then cut off Senators from introducing any more amendments to the bill.

    Amendments waiting in the wings to defund Planned Parenthood and to require the release of American hostages before Iran sanctions are lifted were stopped by McConnell’s action, but the Ex-Im Bank reauthorization was taken care of.

  53. From the floor speech:

    Now the Republican Leader is behaving like the senior senator from Nevada. What we just saw was not, Madam President, what the Majority Leader told you and me and every other Republican senator. What we just saw was not that the proponents of the Ex-Im Bank, like anyone else, could stand up and offer any amendment they’d like on any issue. What the Majority Leader just did is, number one, he called up that amendment. He called it up himself. Why does that matter? Because as Majority Leader he has priority of recognition. When he calls up an amendment, no one can stop him. He didn’t just call it up. He filled the tree, just like Harry Reid, he filled the tree, blocking everyone else’s amendments. By the way, I agree with Senator Reid when he said the Obamacare amendment is a cynical amendment. Of course it is. It is empty showmanship.

    youtube version of Cruz Senate rant:
    An amazing video.

    Accurate on all points.

    A searing indictment of his own leader for corruption.

    You call this a rant???

    Oh, it is far more than that.

    This is more like Marc Anthony’s indictment of the honorable men who murdered Caesar

    The post script to which reads: “mischief thou art afoot”

  55. It is a breathtaking video. I’ve watched a lot of CSPAN congressional sessions off and on over the years and I’ve never seen anything like it, really.

    The biggest slap in the face? He never once referred to McConnell as his esteemed colleague from Kentucky! 🙂

  56. 1. Jane’s Fighting Ships: The Yamato-class battleships (大和型戦艦 Yamato-gata senkan?) were battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) constructed and operated during World War II. Displacing 72,000 long tons (73,000 t) at full load, the vessels were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed. The class carried the largest naval artillery ever fitted to a warship, nine 460-millimetre (18.1 in) naval guns, each capable of firing 1,360 kg (3,000 lb) shells over 42 km (26 miles)

    2. The USS Cruz has launched the first series of salvos against the pirate ship McConnell.

    3. Let us hope that USS Trump levels his 18 inch guns at the same target and sends him to Davy Jones locker, where he can spread his black ink along with the rest of the octupuses.

    4. When McConnell looks his colleagues in the eye and lies to them repeatedly and blocks their attempts to pass legislation supported by the American People, and pushes through legislation which robs voters to pay off donors, and he does this in the broad light of day, how long can he last? Mitch is so corrupt that he makes Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame look like a mere piker.

    “I don’t care who does the electing, so long as I get to do the nominating”—Boss Tweed.

  57. Hillary talking now about her tax plan. She looks very good. Her hair is great. The rock necklace is good for her. Her tax plan appears to be a repudiation of Bill Clinton policies. We’ll watch and listen.

  58. WSJ says Hillary sent classified information from her home server:

    In a letter to members of Congress on Thursday, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community concluded that Mrs. Clinton’s email contains material from the intelligence community that should have been considered “secret” at the time it was sent, the second-highest level of classification. A copy of the letter to Congress was provided to The Wall Street Journal by a spokeswoman for the Inspector General.

    The four emails in question “were classified when they were sent and are classified now,” said Andrea Williams, a spokeswoman for the inspector general. The inspector general reviewed just a small sample totaling about 40 emails in Mrs. Clinton’s inbox—meaning that many more in the trove of more than 30,000 may contain potentially confidential, secret or top-secret information.

    As a result of the findings, the inspector general referred the matter to the counterintelligence division of Federal Bureau of Investigation. An official with the Department of Justice said Friday that it had received a referral to open a investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information.

    A Department of Justice official initially said early Friday morning that the probe into mishandled classified information was criminal in nature, but the department reversed course hours later without explanation.

    “The department has received a referral related to the potential compromise of classified information. It is not a criminal referral,” said an official.

    The inspector general’s office concluded that Mrs. Clinton should have used a secure network to transmit the emails in question—rather than her personal email account run off a home server.

    “None of the emails we reviewed had classification or dissemination markings, but some included IC-derived classified information and should have been handled as classified, appropriately marked, and transmitted via a secure network,” wrote Inspector General I. Charles McCullough in the letter to Congress.

  59. The crackpot left wants Hillary to apologize for 2008:


    Hillary Clinton needs to address the racist undertones of her 2008 campaign [snip]

    Hillary Clinton’s record on race is not great. If she wishes to earn some trust on issues of racial justice, a good place to start would be with the distinctly racist undertones of her 2008 campaign against Barack Obama.

    As the first primaries got underway in 2008, and Obama began to slowly pull ahead, the Clinton camp resorted to increasingly blatant race- and Muslim-baiting.

    Loony. Obama race-baiting is never the problem according to the totalitarian left.

  60. I just listened to the cruz mconnel youtube above and am happy to see it posted here.
    if it was not posted I would have probably missed it.
    its pretty serious and explains quite a bit about the current traitorous republican leadership siding with obama.

    I get all of my political commentary from this site( well maybe a little from hotair when I have a ton of patience).
    note: I read on a ton of political sites this is the only one where I actually read the comments.

    so while I hated jewooozy the mutli-personality amnipulations I actually appreciate hwc’s commentary although I do not agree with some/most of it.

    I too as mentioned above think Hillary lost it when she fell and has been wandering apparently mislead/clueless in the wrong direction politics wise.
    makes me damn sad but I cannot support her current statements.
    trump is starting to look better and better as they align against him.
    trumps tribulations remind me of what palin went through but this time the republicans are playing hard ball and not just undermining the opposition candidate.

  61. Shadowfax, it was on TV. Did not find it online. The Hillary website is entirely useless. We would think a major speech would be streamed at her website. But no. There is an article about the speech posted but to read it you get sent to LinkedIn which is very annoying.


    The Hillary2016 website is only slightly better than the ObamaCare website.

  62. just a hint of things to come…



    The assertion that a man who recently decried Mexican immigrants as “rapists” would win the Hispanic vote in 2016 may sound absurd to most ears, Hispanic and non-Hispanic alike, but it sounded perfectly reasonable to Delilah Rodriguez.

    “Yes, you are,” the 59-year-old Laconia resident said out loud, as she watched Trump make the claim that he’d win Latino vote at the New Hampshire rally.

    Rodriguez, who is of Mexican heritage, stood out among the sea of hundreds of almost entirely white faces who came out to see Trump on a brilliant summer day in the bucolic Lakes Region, which cuts through the middle of the first-in-the-nation primary state.

    But like just about everyone else who was there, she hung on Trump’s every word.

    “I like that he’s not afraid to speak the truth,” Rodriguez told The Huffington Post. “I came here today because I wanted to hear him speak unedited by the media.”

    Rodriguez said that she likes that Trump is “not a politician.” And her hard-line position on immigration is generally attuned to his: she believes the U.S. government should entirely seal off the border with Mexico “for a while.”

    “With his stance on border issues, I’m in total agreement,” she said. “I feel that if anyone has the right intentions in entering our country, they’re not afraid to go through the right channels.”

    Standing beside his mother, Rodriguez’s son — 39-year-old Alex Chapa of Manchester, New Hampshire — nodded his head in agreement. “American Hispanics don’t want all the illegals taking our tax money for free rights,” he said.

    As if to add emphasis to his comments, Chapa added, “We’re Mexican and we’re saying this!”

    Chapa said that his grandparents on his father’s side were born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States legally in the 1940s.

    An Iraq War veteran who signed up for the Army ten days after 9/11, Chapa now works in New Hampshire’s largest city as a veterans’ employment representative.

    Though he thinks that the U.S. government should close the Mexican border “for, like, ten years,” it’s not just Trump’s stance on immigration that attracts him to the bombastic candidate.

    “One of the number one issues America has is money, and he knows how to make money,” Chapa said of Trump. “I like him because he’s a billionaire, and he’s powerful, and he’s international, yet when he talks, he says it straight up, like how real Americans talk in a bar or at home. I love it.”

    Both Rodriguez and Chapa said that they are registered Republicans who voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 New Hampshire primary.

    However, there is no doubt that their views on Trump represent a dramatic departure from those harbored by most American Hispanics.

    A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted last month found that 71 percent of American Hispanics do not consider Trump to be a serious candidate, while only 18 percent thought that he was serious. And in a Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Thursday, 84 percent of Hispanics said that they “definitely would not” vote for Trump.

    But what about Hispanic Republicans? Is it really possible that they might back Trump, as the candidate himself claims they will?

    Trump’s pronouncements to this effect appear to be based on a Gravis Marketing poll conducted in Nevada earlier this month, which did show Trump with a commanding 31.4 percent lead among Republican Hispanics in the state. His closest competitor, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, had the support of 11.4 percent of Republican Hispanics in Nevada, according to the poll.

    Gravis, an automated polling firm, has conducted polls that proved to be wildly inaccurate in the recent past, and its methodology was criticized heavily during the 2014 midterms.

    Jon Ralston, Nevada’s leading political analyst, said that he was “highly skeptical” of Gravis’ Nevada survey showing Trump’s supposed strength among Hispanics.

    “Intuitively, it makes no sense,” Ralston said in an email. “Trump doing better among Hispanics here than Rubio (who also grew up here, by the way)? And better than Jeb? If it’s right, it’s temporal because Trump is in the news. Period.”

    But even if the “Hispanics for Trump” movement is an illusion advanced by shoddy polling and the distorted visions running through the head of the country’s most prominent narcissist, disdain for Trump in the Hispanic community is not universal.

    “People are too sensitive,” Chapa said. “They need to, like, listen to some comedy, have a beer and just relax. They want everyone to talk to them like a first grade teacher talking to a kid, and it’s like, we’re all grown-ups, man.”


    notice how all of a sudden the writers are quick to call Trump the country’s most prominent narcissist…

    Who are they kidding? the most prominent narcissist has been in the WH for almost 8 very long years…

  63. McConnell spokesman Don Stewart declined to comment on Cruz’s remarks
    Declined to comment?

    That is malpractice.

    He should have pushed for a plea bargain for McConnell, consisting of three (3) essential elements:

    1. first, no jail time

    2. second, resignation and forfeiture of all perks

    3. fourth, an elocution admitted that he lied

    5. fifth, a full mea culpa to colleague who relied on is word when they voted–so voters do not take it out on them

    6. sixth, a formal apology to voters for throwing them under the bus.

    Sorry Don Stewart. The usual rope a dope move Mitch is famous for will not work in this instance.

    Perhaps he, or better yet the grand pooba himself, should go on Mark Levin’s show and explain these curious actions.

  64. btw…a few comments to that ‘hispanics for Trump’ article above…perhaps as Trump likes to say…another ‘silent’ majority…

    I am also a Legal immigrant. Many people do not understand that no American, mexican american or any other ethinic group that has American citizenship is going to support illegal immigration. That is why Donald Trump is getting so much support even if you do not agree on how he conveys the message.

  65. McConnell spokesman Don Stewart declined to comment on Cruz’s remarks
    Declined to comment?

    That is malpractice.

    He should have pushed for a plea bargain for McConnell, consisting of six (6) essential elements:

    1. first, no jail time

    2. second, resignation and forfeiture of all perks

    3. third, a total ban on lobbying

    4. fourth, an elocution admitting that he lied and sold everyone down the river for the sake of his donors

    5. fifth, a full mea culpa to colleagues who relied on his word when they voted–so voters do not take it out on them

    6. sixth, a formal apology to voters themselves for throwing them under the bus.

    Mark, as you know, is a harsh critic of “French Republicans” and would eat Mitch alive.

    The Cruz attack, pointed and direct though it was, would be a walk in the park compared to what Levin would do to him.

  66. Just watched the Ted Cruz speech on the Senate floor. IMPRESSED. It’s high time some more stand up and tell the truth about the corruption and what our lying, sleezebag politicians ON BOTH SIDES are doing to us and this country. GO Trump! Go, Cruz!

  67. Matthew Continetti at the Free Beacon gets it exactly right about the appeal of The Donald:

    A brash showboat and celebrity, self-promoter and controversialist, silly and mocking, a caricature of a caricature, Donald Trump is no one’s idea of a serious presidential candidate. Which is exactly why the radical middle finds him refreshing. Not an iota of him is politically correct, he plays by no rules of comity or civility, he genuflects to no party or institution, he is unafraid of and antagonistic toward the media, and he challenges the conventional wisdom of both parties, which holds that there is no real cost to illegal immigration and to trade with China.

    Trump’s foreign policy, such as it is, is like Perot’s directed not toward Eurasia but our southern border. Unlike Perot, whose campaign emphasized the twin deficits of budget and trade, Trump has taken on illegal immigration from Mexico, fighting with both the identity politics left and the cheap labor right, with both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Like Perot too he has seized the public imagination, masterfully exploiting the media’s craving for ratings and for negative portrayals of Republicans, turning CNN into TNN, the Trump News Network, the finest and most exclusive cable channel on air.

    Trump would enjoy press coverage no matter what he ran on. But the fact that he has chosen, perhaps unwittingly, illegal immigration to be his cause makes the coverage all the more polarizing, visceral, contentious, spiteful. He dared say what no one of his wealth and prominence ever says—that illegal immigration is not limited to DREAMERs and laborers and aspirational Americans, that it is not always, as Jeb Bush put it, an “act of love,” that also traversing our southern border are criminals, rapists and narcotics traffickers and human smugglers, displaced souls from illiberal cultures who carry with them not only dreams but nightmares, bad habits, and other costly baggage. That his poor phrasing was sickeningly confirmed in early July, when an illegal immigrant who had been deported several times shot Kathryn Steinle dead in broad daylight on a San Francisco pier, only strengthened Trump’s connection to the radical middle. So did the drug lord El Chapo’s escape from prison soon after Mexico received an extradition request from the United States.

    Donald Trump is not a conservative; conservatives understand that as well. But he is a battering ram, whose crockery smashing can have a salubrious outcome if only conservatives understood that, too.

  68. Schumer will go with Kerry/ Obama as he has ambitions and going against the party would destroy his goals.. he is about as pro Israel as the Obama supporters at “J Street”. A career politician who has never really done anything but mumble a few times while Obama has made Israel more and more isolated and now facing annihilation when Iran gets the bomb. The American liberal Jews could care less about Israel and it would mean very little to them if Israel did not exist. As I Jew, I am ashamed of my people who elected, financed and re-elected this virulently anti-Israeli President. I am tired of fighting so I no longer donate , go to Temple, or associate with most of my former friends.


  69. I sent my email to the friend who is with Cruz.

    He replied as follows:

    McConnell had Ted locked out of a committee meeting


    Our leadership is corrupt.

    That is exactly right.

  71. Trumps campaign sent me this email:

    The Silent Majority has awakened!

    Dear xxxxxxxxxxxx

    Have you seen today’s poll? What about this Fox poll? We are in first place! All the polls confirm it! We continue to prove we are ready to take our country back and, more than any other candidate; we have the support of the people.

    Yesterday I traveled to Laredo, Texas to visit the border and meet with local law enforcement officials. We discussed the need for stronger border security and the importance of continuing the national discussion on this issue. Strengthening our border will most benefit legal immigrants and working class Americans. Continuing to allow illegal immigrants to cross a weak border is hurting America’s economy.

    Many politicians in Washington talk about the border but have no idea how dangerous it really is. I went to the border to make sure the American people have the opportunity to see the truth.

    Meeting with Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz, City Manager Jesus Olivares, and the Laredo Police Department

    Earlier this week I hosted my South Carolina campaign kickoff. Hundreds of veterans came to watch my speech. I announced the launch of a new hotline, 855 – VETS – 352, and email address, veterans@donaldtrump.com, for Veterans to share their stories about the need to reform our Veterans Administration. The way veterans are being treated in our country is a disgrace and I am the candidate that will fix it.

    Meeting with veterans in South Carolina

    I made a campaign stop in Nevada to speak at Freedom Fest. In front of 2,000 energized conservatives I made a pledge that I will remake today; as President I will restore the American free market and ensure that companies are incentivized to bring factories and jobs back to American soil.

    Speaking at Freedom Fest

    I also traveled to Phoenix to host a rally. 15,000 people showed up. It was an incredible testament to the deep commitment of the American people to restoring American greatness. We have stayed silent for far too longwatching bad policies wreak havoc on our economy and our nation. I will take care of our veterans, rebuild our military, and secure our borders.

    Our incredible crowd in Phoenix, AZ

    Most politicians would have backed down after being relentlessly targeted by the media. I will never stop speaking out on behalf of all Americans.

    We have been bringing our message across America over the past several weeks. In California I met with the families of six victims who were killed by illegal aliens. Each family shared their story. It was a heartbreaking reminder of why we must secure our border – to make sure no more Americans are senselessly killed by illegal aliens.

    Our unprotected border is a threat to the stability of our economy, the personal safety of Americans, and our national security. Too many American lives have been lost because our leaders refuse to secure the border.

    Standing with the families of victims

    I also filed my FEC financial disclosure form. I have spent my life building businesses in large American cities and small American towns. I will use my experience to put Americans back to work – and the polls prove that the people know I am the only one who can do it.

    Some of our enthusiastic supporters

    This campaign is about changing Washington. We need to once again have a government that is of the people, for the people and by the people.

    We will make America Great Again!

  72. Geeze, like 23 out of 103 post from the anal obsessed Obola Kook troll pretending to be promoting Cruz. Like, if you have to feed the thing, at least be mindful that it is deceptive and intends to disrupt and misdirect.

    Scroll is the best solution.

  73. Another chapter of American History bites the dust at the hands of the mini Stalins of the left. They have scrubbed the names Jefferson and Jackson from the charter of the state democrat party, in Connecticut, Missouri, and other venues. The NAACP is thrilled and called this a major step in eliminating the vestiges of slavery. RINO Rick Moran, no hero in my book, has this response:

    Yes, Democrats should take the names Jefferson and Jackson off anything that honors the party.

    But not because they were slaveholders or killed Native Americans.

    They should do so because they are unworthy of their legacy of liberty.

    Those who would subsume the rights of individuals for the “greater good” of the collective aren’t fit to polish the commode of either man.

    Cruz confirms everything you have said yourself about the establishment and its corrupt practices, yes?

    Yet you do not wish to hear what he is saying??

    I do not wish to be inundated with it at the direction of a troll that is trying to disrupt the focus on blog. I am skeptical of him because of his convenient too little too late when it no longer matters on the TPP. I am now skeptical of anything he says now that Trump has done the heavy lifting breaking through the false narrative that people have been programmed with. As far as I am concerned, he is not a leader. And I do not like Republicans. My heart belongs to Hillary.

    That being said, I am in a snake pit and would like to have a big stick anyway I can get it.

  76. So far as I am concerned, Admin sets the topic and the blog is on Hillaryis44. People who are here to undermine that need to be kicked to the curb.

    You make a good point.

    The TPP was a big issue in my opinion.

    If adversely affects sovereigty, job opportunity, safety nets, culture, crime, etc.

    The Import Export Bank is more of a symbolic one.

    Its economic effects will be minimal unless those companies fail and the taxpayers have to pay.

    In other words, the first issue creates a imposes a direct liability, the second only a contingent one.

    Therefore, when Ted gives a free pass to TPP

    So long as the Import Export Bank is allowed to lapse

    Makes you wonder whether Obama is not the only bad negotiator.

    But even if the issue is symbolic only

    That speech is a classic take down of a corrupt political leader

    Which calls to mind the opening statement by the future Lord Chancellor of England in the case of Old Bailey.

    Powerful and persuasive enough to send that gizzard lipped McConnell half way to hell.
