PC Blues: Yellowbelly Erick Erickson Of Red State Bans @RealDonaldTrump From #RSG15 Because Donald Trump Is Not Politically Correct

Update: Bernie Sanders is now effectively a hostage of #BlackLivesMatter. Sanders has the PC Blues. The people that went to hear Saint Bernard could not do so because of three politically correct leftist criminals. These are the wages of leftist politically correct speech codes and criminal coddling. Trump would have had them arrested. Jeb Bush and Erick Erickson would have gone the Saint Bernard PC route.

————————————-

Breaking: Trump out at #RSG15. Yeah, Donald Trump is having a “binders full of women” Mitt Romney moment as the establishment right borrows PC speech codes from the establishment left to destroy anti-political establishment Donald Trump. Friday night on CNN Donald Trump attacked Mr. Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly by stating blood was coming out of their eyes as they smeared Donald Trump during Thursday night’s debate. Now things have become twisted as they usually do when Big Media protects its own.

Those that deplore Donald Trump’s exquisite use of English can go to Hell. For too long the American People have needed a major figure to attack Big Media with the same nastiness Big Media employs. For too long the American People have needed someone to stand up and tell the unvarnished truth for everyone to hear.

Now Donald Trump is telling the truth and attacking Big Media. Instead of applause from those that decry speech codes, hate speech laws, the politically correct stranglehold that declares certain issues out of bounds, Donald Trump gets attacked. That the attacks come from alleged conservatives who have made careers decrying the leftist PC culture should infuriate freedom loving Americans.

When Donald Trump responded with verbal fists against the attacks by John McCain the accusation from the PC police was that Trump had insulted veterans. That failed to destroy Trump so the establishment tried again.

When Donald Trump defended his use of language in his years long war against Rosie O’Donnell and declared war on politically correct “tone” sentinels such as Megyn Kelly who tried a “war on women” war on Trump that failed too. So the establishment tried again.

When Donald Trump swatted blood-sucking mosquito Rand Paul at Thursday’s debate the accusation from the PC police was that Trump had insulted the hearing impaired. That failed so the establishment tried again.

Now the accusation from the PC police is that Donald Trump has attacked Megyn Kelly unfairly and in a sexist and misogynist way. It’s the “war on women” war on Trump.

Hypocrites! Vipers brood!

An hour before midnight last night the “leader” of the website and convention “Red State” informed the Donald Trump campaign that Donald Trump was “disinvited” to speak to their Red State Convention. The leader of Red State, Erick Erickson, then invited Megyn Kelly in Donald Trump’s stead.

Those of us who witnessed the sexism and misogyny against Hillary Clinton by Barack Obama in 2008 are extra angry. We don’t recall Red State denunciations when Barack Obama said this about Hillary:

“I understand that Senator Clinton periodically, when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal,” Obama said.

We don’t recall Erick Erickson clenching his vagina when Barack Obama exploited sexism and misogyny to beat Hillary Clinton. It was the rare conservative, such as Jim Geraghty, that noted the sexism and misogyny utilized by Barack Obama against Hillary Clinton in 2008:

Okay, there’s also the time Obama, after a particularly tough exchange with Hillary, told a crowd, “You challenge the status quo and suddenly the claws come out.” And, “You know, over the last several weeks since she fell behind, she’s resorted to what’s called ‘kitchen sink’ strategies. . . . She’s got the kitchen sink flying, and the china flying, and the, you know, the buffet is coming at me.” Also, “I understand that Senator Clinton, periodically when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal.” (This one is especially benign, considering he went with “periodically” instead of “every 28 days or so.”) And when Obama offered the backhanded compliment “You’re likeable enough, Hillary” in a New Hampshire debate, some women may have wondered why we never heard this kind of jab at John Edwards or Bill Richardson.

Few on the left, other than us, spoke up clearly as Sarah Palin was smeared and attacked. The sexism and misogyny against Sarah Palin should have choked Erick Erickson but he apparently survived.

Now Erick Erickson is offended by something Donald Trump said. This Erick Erickson is offended by Donald Trump:

Thinking of showing my son a picture of AJ McCarron’s girlfriend and reminding him to be a quarterback.

The latest tribune of women’s rights is this Erick Erickson:

Fox News Host Megyn Kelly Shreds Lou Dobbs And Erick Erickson Over Women In The Workplace

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly just conducted a heated interview with colleagues Erick Erickson and Lou Dobbs over recent controversial comments the pair made about women’s roles as family “breadwinners.”

While discussing a recent study that showed 40 percent of American households with children have female breadwinners on Wednesday, Erickson called it “anti-science” for men not to play a “dominant” role in a family.

It was something to which Kelly clearly objected when she brought the pair on Friday afternoon.

“I was offended by your piece,” Kelly told Erickson, adding that she was not an “emo liberal” that Erickson subsequently called out while addressing criticism of his comments.

“Just because you have people who agree with you doesn’t mean it’s not offensive.”



Megyn Kelly appears to be strong enough not to need big ol’ Viking Erick Erickson to defend her. Looks like Erick Erickson could use someone to defend him from her. Yet Erick Erickson decided he would protect the little woman and use the favorite trick of the left to censor and silence Donald Trump with PC police terror. So this red-faced Red State pig Erick Erickson is the new hero of women?

Here’s what happened:

Donald Trump disinvited to speak at RedState event; Megyn Kelly invited

ATLANTA — Conservative commentator Erick Erickson on Friday night disinvited GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump from speaking at an activist conference he is hosting here this weekend, citing disparaging remarks Trump made hours earlier on CNN about Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly. [snip]

Trump’s campaign said in a statement that Erickson’s decision was “another example of weakness through being politically correct. For all the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you. Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader. We’ll now be doing another campaign stop at another location.”

Trump’s CNN interview Friday evening instantly drew controversy and criticism after he said Kelly, one of the moderators of Thursday’s Republican presidential debate in Cleveland, “had blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” [snip]

He has also drawn criticism for saying impolitic things, once calling retired Supreme Court Justice David Souter an “[expletive] child molester” and First Lady Michelle Obama a “Marxist harpy.” He has since apologized for both comments.

Trump’s words about Kelly simply went too far, Erickson said Friday, making him, someone who enjoys and appreciates barbed political rhetoric, uncomfortable and queasy. And with his invited guest dominating the 2016 race, and few if any conservatives reining him in, Erickson thought he’d try. [snip]

I’ve gotten a lot of people e-mailing me telling me thank you. Reporters, conservatives, other politicians.

No surprise the political establishment is happy with Red State pig Erick Erickson.

But what really happened? What did Donald Trump say? Here is the full interview:



Colorful? Yeah, real colorful. You can just see the blood red as Donald Trump attacks both Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly with the blood-out-of-eyes comment. The only clip played by the establishment tools is the section about Kelly, not the extended version with Trump saying Wallace too had blood coming out of his eyes. We suppose we’ll have to get a sound specialist to determine whether Trump said “her, whatever” or “her, wherever.” Whatever.

It does not explain the Red State disinvitation nor the invitation to Megyn Kelly. Is Megyn Kelly running for president? Kelly, Wallace and Baier, were all attacked as unfair by Donald Trump. We’re sure they don’t like the attacks. But they deserve the attacks especially since they had more speaking time than any individual candidate at the debate.

Remember that guy we wrote about at HotAir who swore he would never vote for Donald Trump, that Donald Trump was dead to him because of what he said about John McCain? The same guy that a few days later wrote he would vote for Trump in the general election and that he has been wrong about Trump every single time? That guy has a different take on the Red State controversy. Trump out at RSG15: another view

Everything he does is outside the normal political process. The man has taken the rule book, set it on fire and dumped the ashes on the heads of everyone else. And what seems to be driving everyone in the politico class to drink is that he still manages to stay on top. This is perhaps the reminder we all needed. There was a time when the rise of blogs was attributed to the fact that so many Americans were sick of seeing a handful of network news stars acting as the gatekeepers of how the election game should be played. Social media and citizen journalists came in like barbarians at the gates and threw down the old order. But now we’ve been doing it for so long that new media outlets such as Salem Media Group properties like RedState and Hot Air are hosting major political events like RSG and even getting in on moderating debates. (Hugh Hewitt is also part of the Salem network and will take on those duties later in the campaign cycle.)

The point is that, having reached these dizzying heights (if you find them to be such), have we begun to assume the role of the previous gatekeepers, feeling that we can define what the boundaries of acceptable behavior are? [snip]

In the end it is the public who makes the final call, and if they decide that what Trump is doing is good enough for them to keep him as their standard bearer, we were the ones who got it wrong. [snip]

[DISCLOSURE: I’d thought this would go without saying, but for new visitors it is probably worth noting that Hot Air and RedState are properties of Salem Media Group, as are Townhall, Twitchy, Bearing Arms, Human Events, and numerous other print, radio and sundry media outlets.]

Old gatekeepers, meet the new gatekeepers. Leftist PC police meet your auxiliary force the Right-wing PC police following leftist PC laws. All the forces of the establishment are armed and ready to make Donald Trump bleed for what comes out of his mouth in front of national television cameras.

Resist we must. From the left or from the right, we will resist the speech police and the censorship of politically correct control of free speech and a free people. The bullsh*t establishment “conservatives” who decry the tyranny of the establishment left want to impose the tyranny of the right using the same techniques and politically correct speech codes concocted by the left.

Although Red State uses leftist PC police law Red State is not “blue.” Red State is yellow.

  1. Right on Admin..I am furious.
    I had just written to this on the previous blog.
    I wonder how much Fox offered Eric the NOT so Great?
    He has become part of the problem.
    Jesus, I dislike MK soo much. I hope she chokes on her hair weaves one night!

  2. Spot on as usual administrator and another fantastic choice of songs!!!:) The system , both republican and democrat, is rigged to select leaders the party wants and no one else. Trump poses a real threat because of his wealth, independence, and political incorrectness. Since they can’t stop him from talking, they are limiting him and changing the rules much like the dems changed their primary rules on Hillary when Obama appeared to be slipping in 08. I honestly understand why some of my friends about a decade older than I said they stopped voting after the Nixon/McGovern campaign. No matter who we get they are tied to a corrupt, bought and paid for political system whose goals are to keep themselves in power and have very little regard for what the average working class man/woman need to live what once was called the “American Dream”.

  3. Erickson
    That Erickson that one time called Supreme Court Judge Souter a goat fucker child molester? That Eric, obviously someone is now on Lithium for their Bipolar disease and has been offered a golden chalice by the “ones”.

    Another one bites the dust.
    Power corrupts…

  4. Henry it means a lot. Check this out:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2015/08/08/conservatives-grapple-with-surprise-trump-snub/

    ATLANTA — Michael Pemberton, a 65-year-old conservative from Kentucky, started the day in a good mood. He was attending his second RedState Gathering, and ready to hear from 10 of the Republican Party’s presidential candidates. He dug into breakfast — coffee and fruit — and sat down with another conference-goer.

    “One of the chaps across me asked, ‘Did you hear the news?'” recalled Pemberton. “I thought he was going to tell me that a sinkhole opened up in Kentucky and I couldn’t go again. But no: He said, they disinvited Donald Trump. I lost my appetite.” [snip]

    Pemberton grabbed a sharpie and a note card and scrawled out “I AM DONALD TRUMP.” He affixed it to his jacket with an American flag pin and grudgingly walked into the conference, determined never to come again.

    More than 700 activists had signed up for the gathering, and up to a thousand of them had been expected to join Trump at a Saturday night party at the College Football Hall of Fame. On Saturday morning, the reaction to Trump’s exclusion was mixed — and distracting. Annoyance at what seemed to be a politically correct purge competed with annoyance at Trump himself. [snip]

    Those sentiments had been burbling up on the right, but even 12 hours earlier, Trump’s Republican critics had started to soften their tone, and say that the billionaire candidate had tapped into a well of legitimate voter anger. Saturday’s burst of anger at Trump was jarring; not everyone at the conference could agree what Trump had even said. Was he making a crude joke about menstruation or wasn’t he?

    “It’s wrong to exclude him and insult him on what people interpret he said as opposed to what he said,” said Pemberton. “He was saying that Megyn was seeing blood, in her eyes. As far as ‘blood coming out all over,’ the first thing I think of is not a woman’s menstrual cycle. I think of Jesus Christ, thorns on his head, nail holes in his hands, stigmata.”

    In an interview with The Washington Post’s Robert Costa, Erickson defended his Trump snub by attacking the overall tone of the candidate’s post-debate rants. The CNN “blood” interview came after a series of jabs at Kelly, which started in the spin room behind the debate stage. To Erickson, it all sounded sexist and dismissive. “I’m not going to have a guy on stage with my wife and daughter in the crowd who thinks a tough question from a woman is because of hormones,” he said.

    In a Saturday morning tweet, Trump clarified, saying he was talking about blood coming from her nose. (His campaign had failed to convey this to Erickson.)

    His campaign later released a statement, credited to Trump, that ripped into the RedState editor-in-chief personally.

    “The guy (Erick Erickson) who made the decision about RedState called Supreme Court Justice David Souter a ‘goat [expletive] child molester’ and First Lady Michelle Obama a ‘Marxist Harpy,'” Trump said. “He was forced to make a humbling apology. Also, not only is Erick a total loser, he has a history of supporting establishment losers in failed campaigns so it is an honor to be uninvited from his event.” [snip]

    “The Republican Party is not engaged in a war on women,” said Huckabee. “The Republican Party is not engaged in saying things about Megyn Kelly. One individual is. I’m a Republican. I’ve been one since a teenager. I think what I say about Megyn Kelly has more gravity.”

  5. These latest PC attacks on Trump just exposed Fiorina and Erickson as tools of the GOP establishment. No way now should Trump ever consider Fiorina as his VP; she is clearly unsuitable for the job of being a heartbeat away from the presidency.

  6. Although Red State uses leftist PC police law Red State is not “blue.” Red State is yellow.

    Big tent?

    My ass.

    Small tent.

    Smaller minds.

    Like we saw with Hailey Barbouir in Mississippi.

    We need to de-louse the parasites that feast on the bones of the American People.

    I hate to think it takes a collapse to do that.

  7. Erickson is a wus.

    This has been obvious for some time.

    Never mentioned it before.

    Never needed to mention it.

    But now it is a proven fact.

    I will not vote for the Republican candidate unless it is Cruz.

    That party must go the way of the dinosaur.

  8. If I were Donald, I would dust off the Ross Perot playbook.

    Get my name on the ballot in all 50 states.

    Attack the establishment 24/7.

    Every day another example.

    I would penetrate the black, brown, yellow and white communities.

    I would promise to revive the economy and get them jobs.

    I would bring in credible people from all walks of life.

    My goal would to win and I will never give up the fight.

    That would take that smirk off those RINO faces

    And give them something to worry about at that Red State orgy.

    I might even enter into an alliance with Hillary.

    Fuck these vicchy republicans

  9. At this point, it should be obvious to Hillary that Donald is a potential ally.

    Sadly, she is so far gone I doubt she realizes that.

    wbboei – no chance you would vote for trump?

  11. Yeah, “outgoing”Erickson”…I bet to land on Fox with big money or something very much like it.
    What a hypocritical ass…
    That being said, Please Donald, clean it up “a little”!

  12. And, just so you know hwc, the next one the elites will go after and destroy will be Ted.

    You can count on it.

    Yet you are so anxious to get Trump off the stage?

    I hope more people are coming to the realization that there is no way to reform the republican party.

    It must be destroyed, through the creation of a third party which advocates:

    1. economic growth

    2. end crony capitalism

    3. campaign finance reform

    4. term limits

  13. wbboei – no chance you would vote for trump?
    —–
    Trump would be my first choice.

    The hypothetical above assumed he was no longer in the party because of either expulsion or forming a third party.

    If I were him I would put Reince Priebus testacles in a vice and squeeze—third party term limits power to the people.

    That would give that little squirt a malox moment.

    And I would be sure to thank Kelly and Erickson for helping me see that the American dream cannot be achieved through their party.

  14. http://www.redstate.com/2015/08/07/i-have-disinvited-donald-trump-to-the-redstate-gathering/#comment-2181276036

    Just to be clear, Trump is not my candidate. That being said he is currently the front runner for the Republican nomination. He has also, like it or not, forced the candidates to move right in some positions and focus on the significant anger of the base. An “anger” by the way RS writers seem to proclaim is being ignored, ad nauseaum. An anger, the other candidates suddenly embraced rather than deplored at the debates.

    Think that would have happened without Trump– or would the established voices like Bush doubled down on their rhetoric?

    So I would have to theorize while you like the knock-off effects, you don’t like the messenger? You also seem to enjoy engaging in censorship, and then raised the bar of foolishness further by inviting a media host, one with whom I’ll presume you are friends, in place of a candidate- because he “insulted” her.

    You’ll have to forgive me, but the stated motives seem sufficiently thin and ill grounded to wonder what the ulterior motive is.

    As for Ms. Kelly, my opinion is she crossed the line at the debate. She let emotions and her personal feelings interfere with a role in which she should have been neutral. These are exactly the tactics we find dishonest and disgusting with the major media, and yet since she’s “on your side”, not only it is ignored, but rewarded.

    By the way, the sum effect of that wretched, dishonest behavior? Trump moved up in the polls.

    Who is being short-sighted, emotive cliquish here? I believe the answer is fairly obvious.

  15. Chris Wallace, women’s liberationist:

    Kelly Clarkson Fat Shamed By Fox News’ Chris Wallace, He Tells Her To ‘Stay Off The Deep Dish Pizza’

    Poor Kelly Clarkson just can’t catch a break! The singer is being fat shamed yet again by the media.

    This time, Fox News‘ Chris Wallace took a jab at the American Idol winner saying, “Kelly Clarkson’s got a lovely voice. She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while.”

    Wallace made the comment during a radio interview on Friday’s The Mike Gallagher Show in which Wallace and Mike Gallagher were joking about weight. “Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up,” Gallagher said, according to a transcript of the show.

    imho, you have to earn top billing. so far, Hillary has not done so.

  20. the next one the elites will go after and destroy will be Ted

    He has enough political sense, when he’s firing an AK-47, to cook bacon on the barrel and turn it into a viral YouTube, not aim it at himself and empty a couple of magazines into his foot, lashing out like a drunken fool.

  21. I have zero respect for Megyn. She constantly spits on Hillary then tries to pretend she is a feminist. Same with stupid Carly. (I hope I spelled both of their names incorrectly.)

    Red State guy has his head up his @$$. Did he ever defend Hillary against real sexist attacks?

    I like Clinton-Trump better

    That’s what I’ve been saying too, Lu.

  23. Megyn Kelly asserted that Trump said something about a woman on her knees.

    Here’s Mark Levin making sense and digging out what really happened:

    Fox News went through 6 seasons of Apprentice to mug Trump with a made up series of events. The contestant was begging a producer to put her on the show or something in a very dramatic move. It as not sexual. But sexual is what Megyn Kelly implied.

  24. He has enough political sense, when he’s firing an AK-47, to cook bacon on the barrel and turn it into a viral YouTube, not aim it at himself and empty a couple of magazines into his foot, lashing out like a drunken fool.
    ———–
    And you think THAT will be enough to save him?

    Don’t kid yourself . . .

    The establishment goons, including Kelly, are coming for him too.

    Trust me, the party elites have put the same target on his back

    For calling out the political class and defending the constitution.

    These establishment thugs are attracted to bright shiny objects—like Donald.

    Remove Donald from the equation

    And I guaran-damn-tee-you that your man Ted Cruise will be the next target on their hit parade

    Pursuant to their larger project of cleansing the party of conservatives

    Therefore, the pivotal question for you is just how do you plan to stop them?

    The only answer is a third party, the purpose of which is to deny the presidency to a party who betrays its supporters.

    First, they came for the conservative candidate in Missisppi who ran against Thaddius Cockbite
    They called him a racist, a clansman, paid blacks walk around money and he lost
    But I said nothing, because I did not live in Missippi, and liked Haley Barbour

    Next, they came for Donald Trump when he questioned the bona fides and competence of our elites
    They called him a sexist, a bigot, and they dis-invited him to the Red State convention
    But I applauded their politics of personal destruction because I did not know any better.

    Next, they came for Ted Cruz because he too questioned their bona fides and competence
    They called him a bible thumping grenade throwing AK-47 toting madman
    But I was afraid to stand up for him, because I just wanted to be liked.

    Finally, they came for me.
    But there was no one left to speak for me.

  25. And I guaran-damn-tee-you that your man Ted Cruise will be the next target on their hit parade

    Bring it on. It will be a test of his political skills.

    I understand that he pulled CNN’s pants down today when they cut to him live to ask about Trump, he pivoted by saying that the media wanted to talk about personalities, but the American people are more interested in issues like Obama allowing sanctions to be lifted on the Iranian war criminal who has murdered 500 Americans. CNN thought they were getting Trump bashing was stuck, forced to broadcast a Cruz attack on the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy — you know, that “rhetoric” that Mitt says he shouldn’t use.

  26. I support Trump because I do believe that if elected, he will create jobs, put a real dent in illegal immigration, and negotiate better deals with china, Japan, Mexico, and Iran. I think it would be a good thing if foreign leaders feared our president at this point.
    These are not bullsh-t issues for me. My husband has lost his job and is now finishing courses to start a new career in his 60’s. My daughter has also lost her 6 figure job and has been unable to replace it with any kind of a decent job. She was a brilliant student and an excellent employee. Her unemployment insurance has run out. My industry has been destroyed by China so although I’m self employed, I will soon be without much of a job as well as the industry collapses around me. My neighborhood has been invaded by illegal immigrants and taxes doubled to send their kids to school.
    After putting 2 kids thru private colleges, we worked hard to build retirement savings these last 10 years, but it has been impossible with almost 0 interest rates. We have lost money in the market.

    So I don’t care very much what Trump says when he’s pissed off. I just need someone who will get the job done and I believe he has the brains, the experience and the ability to do it. What Hillary is offering right now just won’t do it for me. And to be clear, I didn’t leave the Dem party, they left me. I thought Hillary was my champion, but that has not turned out to be true. She doesn’t understand what is happening to people like me. My husband and I both attended top universities and have post graduate degrees. We have worked hard and played by the rules but are struggling. Something is very wrong. Time for a citizen president again; one with proven managerial skills and not afraid to be tough when needed.

  27. HWC: i am boycotting Red State, therefore I did not see Ted’s video. I will watch him in other forum. I respect your support for him. But you have no idea what you and he are up against. I am making another contribution to him, because I like him personally, but the will not be the candidate. Trust me, it will be Kasich. And the ethnic cleansing of conservatives by the RINOs will continue. Nothing will change until someone pulls a Perot on that one. Nothing will come of nothing. You still get that honeymoon feeling listening to these jamokes. I don’t. They make me want to puke.

  28. By the way, Carly also lost me when she backed Kelly.

    For me, the path forward is getting clearer all the time.

  29. Different circumstance. When running for President, I think you have to welcome the best shots the media can take. The best hitters in baseball want a chance to knock 90 mph fastball over the center field wall.

    Maybe a Democrat candidate can expect softball pitches from their friends in the media, but a Republican certainly isn’t going to get easy ones.

    How candidates deal with gotcha questions in debates and on the trail is something that we should be evaluating. One of my problems with the way Clinton is running her campaign is that she’s mostly ducking all the questions.

  30. Kasich may end up being the establishment squish candidate. I see an effort to pump up Rubio right now. Apparently the Washington cartel sees that Jeb! is less than a stellar candidate. We’ll see when the campaign officially starts next month.

  31. By the way, there is nothing petty churlish or unreasonable about this. Their betrayal of the central campaign promises in 2008 and again in 2012 tells you all you need to know: it is a sucker bet to vote for them. A sucker bet. Conservatives must stay home in 2016 if they have any respect for themselves. Let a word to the wise be sufficient. Let him who hath ears to ear listen.

  32. Kasich may end up being the establishment squish candidate
    ——-
    You mean like Don Lemon telling Trump there was a lot of excitement about Rubio, despite his lack luster speech earlier in the week. He is their vice presidential shill.

  33. correction: vice presidential shift.

    I am glad to hear that Black Lives Matter is adding its pennant to the rich tapestry of the modern democrat party.

    That this assault against an aging icon of socialists by communists happened right here makes it even better.

    Not since the Battle of Seattle have we seen such an inspiring group of young people showing us the path forward.

    I just hope the tear gas guns are not too far away, in case things here get a little rambunctious, and the mayor we have whose nickname is Little Bill di Baggio freezed up.

  34. Glad that some are seeing Carly for what she is. I’m sure that none of us honestly think that the establishment Republicans will allow her to be the nominee or even the VP unless they think they need her to finish Hillary off. She is there for one reason….to attack Hillary. When she has accomplished her job she will be put out to pasture and all the kudos to her brilliant communication skills will dry up totally. Talk about a war on a woman. Does Carly not see this?

  35. From two threads back, admin’s transcription in real time –

    Now, Wallace asks Rubio to attack Trump and what he said. Rubio says the majority come from Central America not Mexico. Rubio says he somewhat agrees with Kasich and that Trump addresses an important issue.

    This is the new defensive meme, “they don’t all come from MX”. But they have to cross through MX, and MX used to be very strict about its own southern border. Apparently O made some deal with them, and poof! they let everyone through, and we get a couple of years of high illegal immigration unfettered by our own border patrol (by O orders) and sanctuary cities. So the fact that they are not all MX does not absolve MX of the invasion.

    Kelly: Isn’t it an ideological problem? Cruz, yes that’s why I propose to revoke citizenship from terrorists.

    I heard once that you can’t take someone’s citizenship away if that leaves them stateless. I don’t know if it’s true (I wish I knew), but if it is true, then they can’t revoke citizenship from “homegrown terrorists” who have gone to the middle east and are trying to return.

    When running for President, I think you have to welcome the best shots the media can take. The best hitters in baseball want a chance to knock 90 mph fastball over the center field wall.
    ————
    And what about the worst shot, or the partisan shots where they put pillows under your opponent, while undermining you.

    I find it incredible that you would endorse and “welcome” such a process.

    You forget that we are not talking about an objective and non partisan media.

    Furthermore, this isn’t a debate at all.

    If you want a debate, break it up into smaller groups and use a non partisan moderator.

    What you are endorsing here is the big media freak show designed to create the appearance of democracy.

    Managed democracy and inverted totalitarianism.

  37. “Our team is playing for the other side!”

    That statement is what the establishment will go after him for.

    They must maintain the illusion that there are two parties, when in fact there is only one party.

    The uniparty.

  38. Trump’s defense that he meant blood coming out of Kelly’s eyes might be true, or might be spin. But it appears the “knees” accusation had to do with begging on his show, not anything sexual.

    You’d think that candidates would know not to respond to anything they’re not familiar with, that they’d beg off, saying, “I would have to know the context, first”. Carly Fiorina is probably wishing she had done that now!

    On second thought, though, they are all either lifelong politicians or aspire to be, and the status quo in politics seems to be to pass something before you read it, which is the same type of thing….

    Regardless, I still feel there has to be a lower limit to being un-pc — more class than crass. IMO, making America great again is not just economic and keeping us safe.

    I also hope we move beyond idealizing Kardashians, drugged-out rock stars, and womanizing and not-too-bright athletes who are rich and famous because they can bounce a ball. AND I hope we will change NASA’s prime goal back to science and the stars and away from making Muslims feel good about themselves.

    So, I think that the economy and public safety are #1, but I hope on the way we become a nation with some class and real heroes again….

  39. Gonzo: we talked about this one a couple years ago. Best western ever made, but impossible to find until now. I found it yesterday on the internet and thought I would pass it along in case you would like to have it.

  40. Trump’s defense that he meant blood coming out of Kelly’s eyes might be true, or might be spin
    ———
    There was no ambiguity to what he said. They twisted his words, just like they did with Bill in South Carolina. Only now it is not the left wing big media but the right wing media—which is really just one media and one party and one establishment and one set of dirty tactics deplore by each politician unless he or she is the one doing it.

    It is not just theater, it is failure theater for the country.

    Go Trump. Go Cruz. And wake up Hillary.

  41. “There was no ambiguity to what he said. They twisted his words, just like they did with Bill in South Carolina. Only now it is not the left wing big media but the right wing media—which is really just one media and one party and one establishment and one set of dirty tactics deplore by each politician unless he or she is the one doing it. It is not just theater, it is failure theater for the country.”
    ___________________

    Yes, indeed. One media and one party behind the scenes. I’ll never ever forget 2008 and all the twisted logic they used to say Bill and Hillary were racist, the Robert Kennedy comment Hillary made and how badly they twisted it. It still makes me angry and sick. Now they are at it again with Trump. Carly should go back and review the usefulness of John Edwards in 2008 to be the attack dog on HIllary and what happened when he had served his usefulness. Just because you sell your soul the devil aka RNC and DNC does not mean you are going to come out on top or come out at all.

  42. Glad that some are seeing Carly for what she is. I’m sure that none of us honestly think that the establishment Republicans will allow her to be the nominee or even the VP unless they think they need her to finish Hillary off. She is there for one reason….to attack Hillary. When she has accomplished her job she will be put out to pasture and all the kudos to her brilliant communication skills will dry up totally. Talk about a war on a woman. Does Carly not see this?

    Carly Fiorina is not being funded by the establishment Republicans. She was invited to the Koch donors summit last weekend and she recently got a half million contribution from the Ted Cruz SuperPAC funded by Robert Mercer run by his daughter Rebekah Mercer. Mercer is the largest single Republican donor so far this year ($11 million to the Cruz SuperPac). IMO, she will continue to be funded and promoted as a Clinton attack machine and a very serious VP candidate.

    The Republican race doesn’t fit a simplistic model. There are actually two Republican parties and the unofficial one is better funded and has more sophisticated infrastructure (voter database, etc.) than the RNC does. The RNC Republican party is pro Chamber of Commerce. The alternative party is “severely” anti crony capitalism and anti Washington.

    The race is hard to understand without following which candidates are on which funding/message track. Candidates which don’t have access to either of the donor track are essentially running mirage campaigns, but they can’t be viable.

    I really think that the Koch group of donors is trying to field a team of candidates to message in various lanes both before and after a nominee is selected. Look at a group of Rubio, Walker, Cruz, and Fiorina as a messaging/surrogate team, regardless of the nominee. Those are four excellent spokespeople, each with a slightly different appeal.

  43. Since when are presidential debates “fair”? I’ve never seen one that wasn’t a string of gotcha questions. Are you forgetting Stephanopoulos asking about birth control and Candy Crowley tag-teaming Romney?

    I don’t know your expectation Thursday, but my expectation was that the three Fox anchors would be relentless with their questions. They were.

    The fact that Trump was unprepared, has a litany of flip flops to defend, and acted like a thin-skinned drunk is his problem. Honestly, I thought the other nine candidates handled the questions exceptionally well, especially for a first debate.

  44. “Look at a group of Rubio, Walker, Cruz, and Fiorina as a messaging/surrogate team, regardless of the nominee.”

    ____________________

    Yes, that MUST be it. 😉 So if they are the Jay-vee or surrogate team, that must mean that Jeb is “the one” as we suspected. So that must mean that the four “excellent spokespeople” have been told to keep the secret and if they are good little soldiers they have been promised a cabinet position, VP, etc. So obviously they must know they are only messengers, not real candidates and there for diversion or to attack??

    Is that what you are saying?

  45. Southern Born:

    No, that’s not what I’m saying. Although Bush got his first invitation to a Koch summit, he is funded by the RNC Republicans, not by the anti-Washington Koch donors.

    To his credit he is trying to “reach across the aisle” with his appearance at the Koch donor summit last weekend and Red State today. How effective his outreach will be is yet to be seen. The third member of the royal family is a hard sell.

  46. Trump has called out media and different aspects of the political process (not just elections). He has also talked about how the political class works for itself, not for us.

    I don’t know how familiar he is with primaries 2008, but IMO he should get familiar. He could talk about what the DNC (and media) did to Hillary and then talk about what the RNC (and the media) are doing to him. Then tie it all together to show how the politicians across party, and the media whose job it is to protect us FROM those parties to alert people to how TPTB are trying to prevent us from electing the person that the people really want.

    Actually, this feels like something that Admin might have said, so if s/he already did and I missed it, my apologies!

  47. what the RNC (and the media) are doing to him.

    Red State is not the RNC and not the media (in the conventional sense). It’s actually more of an evangelical/conservative blog/group.

    I don’t know what the RNC is “doing to him”. As for the media, they’ve been on their knees (to borrow a Trumpism. Going to his building for interviews. Allowing phone interviws. Never asking him policy questions. He would have to a be a “total loser” and a “horrible person” to complain about the media.

  48. I think Trump knew exactly what he was doing. The press is enemy number 1. Look what they have done to Hillary, Sarah and Mitt. Never were they gonna fluff his pillows. I think he took his best chance and went up against cable news biggest rising star. 24 million tuned in to see him. The man made billions on real estate. I had a summer job assisting an agent. She was really good. We would park a few blocks away from a property and spend a half hour walking from every possible avenue to see the house. She would tell people I will sell your house but you are renting a storage locker and putting 90% of your stuff there. You are buying new bedding and you will never leave a dish in the sink. I found her rude. One time she was throwing clothes out of a woman’s closet screaming who would buy this it looks like the discount rack at Salvation Army. She sold that house at full priceone week later. I could never be her but she had a gift of being able to survey the landscape. In a nutshell she knew what she was doing. The woman was really good at her job.
    Trump reminds me of her. I think he took a look at the media and knew they were his biggest enemy. He did not go after a staff writer on the local Poughkeepsie press. He faced off with the rising star of the biggest news channel. Come on. The move was brilliant. He has debated a run for decades. Do you believe he makes stupid mistakes? He let the press know he is not going to be treated like Romney, Palin, Hillary. Remember what they did to them.

  49. hwc – I don’t know what Red state is and I don’t believe I referenced it. But I have every belief that the RNC is heavily involved in trying to select the winner. Hence my suggestion to Trump.

    On another note – I stood up for your right to post here, and against the redundant criticisms of you. But when you post so many videos of Cruz in one thread, it’s kind of like rubbing it in people’s faces.

    Isn’t there some happy medium, where you are able to express your varied thoughts, and we who read comments don’t have to suffer all the constant, non-productive negative comments afterwards? You know how to piss them off….. isn’t there a way to stay in the game and express your opinions without doing that….?

    All the way around, it would make the blog much more pleasant to read….

  50. hwc – sure, the media is going out to cover him, but is it for honest news coverage or is it to watch for a faux pas? The media was interested in Sarah Palin, too – they dug through her dumpster – for honest journalistic news, I’m sure.

    The media was also interested in Hillary – they reminded everyone of the blue dress (which had nothing to do with her), accusations from long ago that were disproven in court, they made fun of her wearing pants (news flash – a large percentage of women *never* wear dresses/skirts, and it wasn’t god who decreed that women wear dresses, especially since men used to, too).

    Media also has a history of building someone up before tearing them down.

    So, media being interested in someone isn’t necessarily a reason to have no complaints.

  51. Henry, to be perfectly honest, I don’t really care who you vote for. 🙂

    Lorac, there is one video of a Cruz speech in this thread. It’s the best political speech I’ve seen all year and I’ve now watched multiple speeches from every candidate (except Pataki, one was enough). I made it through Bush’s speech. I got about five minutes into Walker’s and couldn’t take it anymore. The long form speech is really not his strong suit. I’ve got Rubio, the Huckster, Fiorina, and Jindal to go. I also want to watch Gov Greg Abbott. He’s a key figure in in conservative constitutional law circles, a player in most of the state-driven challenges that have made it to the Supreme Court over the last seven years.

    As for knowing who Red State is, that’s kind of fundamental to this whole kerfuffle. Red State is the group that rescinded Trump’s invitation to an event that featured six other presidential candidates. It had nothing to do with the RNC. Generally speaking, Red Staters hate the RNC.

  52. Hwc
    So what is your goal
    You are epic fail if Cruz is your man. I loathe him because of you. I will never vote for Cruz brcause i find you so obnoxious

  53. In Matter of Big Media vs Donald Trump

    OPINION AND AWARD

    Over the past 48 hours, a number of witnesses have appeared before this tribunal to testify with respect to the captioned matter.
    After reviewing the pertinent evidence, weighing the credibility of witnesses and applying the cannons of common sense this Arbitrator finds the following to be true and the dispositive of the matter at hand:

    1. First, FOX news sold its soul for a mess of pottage and betrayed its audience to protect the Washington cartel

    2. Second, Megan Kelly played the role of a bimbo with great conviction and abused her position as moderator

    3. Third, Frank Luntz is a complete fraud who salts his focus groups with bitter partisans

    4. Fourth, Eric Erickson played the role of Pontius Pilot by choosing censorship over freedom of speech

    5. Fifth, The Donald spoke only the truth and like St. Christopher slew the dragon of political correctness.

    The Arbitrator cannot help but wonder whether, given the low moral character of Obama and Bush, Donald isn’t too good of a man for the job. For unlike the other candidates Donald’s motive is not mercantile but patriotic. In point of fact, he is losing money by pursuing this run and there being no contrary evidence on point, the arbitrator is moved by his sincerity and selflessness.

    The Arbitrator finds that the presidential campaign process is a total and complete fraud. The testimony of Larry Johnson at Red State is persuasive and directly on point:

    “The campaign for President is a complex charade. It is like a promiscuous whore pretending that she is going to be crowned Queen of England because of her virginity. The entire process is a charade of artificial pomp, contrived circumstance and inflated foolishness packaged in formal business wear and accompanied by funeral parlor whispers. The media and establishment types wag their crony stained fingers at you and demand that you understand that this is very, very serious. Yet, as we are seeing this weekend, they embrace the issue like a horny sailor on leave at a Manila bordello and fan the flames of the faux furor that Donald Trump was attacking the uterus of Megyn Kelly. Leading the defense of poor Ms. Megan are a parade of outraged Democrats who are best know for their previous vociferous attacks on anyone who flayed Bill Clinton for his actual sex abuse of many women. A Democrat actually raping a woman is okay? Donald Trump saying that Megyn’s eyes bleed? Not only do they now have their panties in big knot over the Donald, they want his head. The hypocrisy is stunning and sickening.”

    Lastly, the Arbitrator finds the testimony of Megan Kelly to be unconvincing. Ms. Kelly is hereby ordered to undergo sensitivity training to be conducted by the two professors who appear in this video, and to tender a written apology to the Donald within 30 calendar days of this decision.

    too funny, wbboei

  55. There are no rules this time and the hacks and media better get used to it. No one, NO ONE feels sorry for burning projectiles at the their head. After the stunts pulled in 2008 and 2012 anything goes. If you can’t fight in the scrum limp out now. The rules have evolved over the last 20-25 years and trying to change them now is a weasel move and won’t work. The elites have forgotten that peasants can always be much more brutal that they can. Peasants are used to it.

  56. Donald picked this one right!

    and you have to take heart in the spirit of this tweet:

    Donald J. Trump · 3h3 hours ago  New Jersey, USA
    Will be doing Meet the Press, This Week and Face the Nation Sunday morning. Enjoy!

    How can he be wrong when he feels so right?

  57. For the second time in many years we purposely tuned into CNN. The reason: Trump was on with Jake Tapper. He did very well. Went after smarmy Bush on women’s health issues and said only a sick person would associate his comments with the insult that has been alleged. Trump declared that the attacks against him are from candidates lower than him in the polls trying to get advantage. The non-candidates such as Erick Erickson Trump said support other candidates and want to help their candidates with these attacks. Trump also noted the nasty anti-women remarks Erick Erickson has made in the past. Trump then denounced the culture of political correctness and the constant demand for apologies. Trump came off very well.

  58. All these critics have histories which they seem to forget in the heat of the moment. Trump has no qualms of reminding them of things they have either forgotten, or hope no one will remind them of. Yet shortly after they have stepped into the limelight and attacked him, he opens the door to their ghosts of Christmases past. The latest example of this phenomenon is Erickson who carries a Bible in one hand, and a dagger in the other. Let him take his bows for defending Megan Kelly. Its the curtain calls he needs to watch out for.

  59. Trump would never let this happen:

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/250667-protesters-interrupt-bernie-sanders-rally

    Protesters shut down Bernie Sanders rally

    Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking.

    Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.

    After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.

    One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.” [snip]

    Some in the crowd jeered the protesters and yelled “get off the stage,” but others replied “let her talk.”

    At times, shouts of “arrest her” were audible.

    After the four-and-a-half minutes, protesters did not relinquish the stage.

    “If you care about Black Lives Matter, as you say you do, you will hold Bernie Sanders specifically accountable for his actions,” Johnson continued.

    She mentioned a similar interruption by Black Lives Matter activists during the annual progressive NetRoots Nation gathering. Protestors flooded the stage early on in the event and shouted down Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley as well as Sanders.

    Hundreds, or thousands, could not hear Saint Bernard because of 3 criminals and Bernie Sanders sulked away.

  60. Update: Bernie Sanders is now effectively a hostage of #BlackLivesMatter. Sanders has the PC Blues. The people that went to hear Saint Bernard could not do so because of three politically correct leftist criminals. These are the wages of leftist politically correct speech codes and criminal coddling. Trump would have had them arrested. Jeb Bush and Erick Erickson would have gone the Saint Bernard PC route.

    So that you know, this is why we have a $15 minimum wage, foreigners on our city council, rent control proposals that will probably pass, 141 building projects underway, 26 tower cranes on the skyline, gridlock traffic, rents over $2000 per month, a police department that has been denuded, boulevards thick with hordes of techies, a culture I cannot understand, politics as described and they cannot name everything after Martin Luther King fast enough. San Francisco is sedate by comparison.

    Forty years ago I worked for an Alaska seafood company, and one of the hats I wore was a risk manager. It was a challenging job due to the size and scope of our operations in every major fishing area in Alaska. I also managed their employee benefits, or rather I managed the insurance broker who managed those benefits. There came a point where I shopped the business, because I sensed that the holding broker was getting too fat off our business. I later learned that they had an in with the president so my efforts were all for naught. However, in the course of interviewing other brokers, I was introduced to a young man who impressed me from a business standpoint due to his engaging personality and his steel trap mind. He had a strange name, which happened to come up the other day in a conversation. I was told that he travels all over the world fly fishing, which can only mean he has a lot of money. But the thing that interested me, and wanted to mention to you is he was sitting in a restaurant in Sun Valley a couple weeks ago with a friend of mine and his family, and this old codger walked up to the table and asked if he could join them. He smiled and shook hands with the codger, but declined the offer. There just isn’t enough room for you here, Warren, I am sorry. And he sent the old codger on is way. The codger was there for some meeting with the Davos crowd. His name was Warren Buffett. My friend about fell out of his chair seeing this happen. He asked me how many people did I think would refuse Warren Buffet’s entreaty. No one I can think of I said, but evidently it did happen.

  70. btw…just for the record…so glad that scummy Roger Stone is gone from DT’s camp

    the word was that Donald fired him because yuky Stone was using the campaign to promote himself…Stone says he quit and leaks wierd disparing stuff about DT and his state of mind…

    …but true to form…Stone was not even gone one day and there he was on, at least ,CNN promoting himself and his upcoming book…

    i will never forget when the news stories came out years ago about Stone and his ‘wife’ being swingers and they showed photos of Stone dressed like a pimp…he is so creepy…

    so glad he is gone…

    Exactly.

    Before the country can survive and prosper again.

    There needs to be a thorough de lousing of the parasites that afflict the body politic.

    Term limits, campaign finance reform, a comprehensive review of all sweetheart contracts, the introduction of lean services, strict accountability, deep cost cutting, unified command, dismissal of bureaucrats wedded to old way, honest change agents, merit as opposed to seniority, public accountability, measurement of citizen/customer satisfaction, balanced scorecard, automation, etc.

    Then . . . this is all just a ploy by Obama? It is possible to support Cruz even here without being an agent of Obama. That is a quantum leap. You need to connect the two premises with facts rather than assumptions. The way to test its validity is to ask the author of those postings what he did to oppose Obama. I pass that problem to your wheel house for further consideration.

    Delicious, ain’t it? The utter shock(!!!!) which is the inevitable result of pushing divide & conquer identity politics. They still don’t get it.

  80. I call it payback. I’ll never forget the first time I was called a racist. January 9, 2008, the day after Hillary won NH. Donna Brazille shell-shocked her man lost. “there are obviously some racial underpinnings happening here” or something to that effect. I almost kicked my TV in.

    yup, payback’s a bitch.

  81. So, to all the Trump supporters. Who is his campaign staff now?

    1) His consigliere Micheal Cohen who appears on TV as his spokesman

    2) The campaign organizer from New Hampshire is his campaign manager.

    Anybody else?

  82. Loving the hell out of the comments on lefty sites – they think they are in “solidarity” with these communists and just.can’t.understand.why BLM is attacking TheBern. LOLOL…. #reapthewhirlwind

  83. omg…that BLM video is too much…and Bernie Sanders just standing there like some staff worker…

    …this is reminding me more and more of the days the dem voters ran from the party and elected Reagan…

    don’t think they will not try to interrupt Hillary when they get the chance…so far Hillary has had more controlled envioronments…

  84. Right after Bernie Beefcake congratulates Seattle on being the most “progressive” place in the universe, pandemonium breaks loose, he surrenders the podium, and the dims are confronted with the logical and probable consequences of everything they have been promoting for the past seven years. Their chickens, Chickens, CHICKENS have come home to roost. It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. They were supposed to be clear of the bank when the bomb went off. Alas, the best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley.

    Here’s RINO Rick Moran’s take on this workers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose buy your chains, you have a world to gain moment preserved in time through the miracle of celluloid:

    Bernie Sanders can’t afford to diss the violent extremists because, as the BLM founder notes, they have embedded themselves in the mainstream of the Democratic Party. For future rallies, there may be an effort to keep them off the stage, but that will hardly shut them up.

    The Democrats’ situation is analogous to what happened to Hubert Humphrey in 1968. No candidate represented liberalism the way that Humphrey did, but he was shouted down by radicals for his support of the Vietnam War. Night after night, the news featured video of Humphrey being prevented from speaking by scruffy looking hippies. Those images helped Nixon to build a huge lead, which ultimately shrank but do doubt contributed to Nixon’s final victory.

    The mainstream media won’t touch Black Lives Matter and their violent agenda. No matter how extreme or violent, the nets will maintain the fiction of a “protest movement” to avoid being branded “racist.”

  85. Reliable Sources on CNN just had on Omorosa and another executive woman who has worked for DT for over a decade…

    they were there to defend DT and his stance with women…they were good…Omorosa saying the obvious…that they did not ask DT any questions of substance because they do not want to give him the opportunity to express his ideas…and that MK and the other two were being PETTY…

    obvious to everyone but coincidently not to those who have an agenda against DT

    give us all a break…they think we are stupid…those days are over…

  86. S, think about what you just wrote. Think deeply about what you just wrote. We’re astounded.

    You wrote that celebrity apprentice contestant Omorosa was on a show called “Reliable Sources.” How sad is it that in the current political environment and our political class someone like Omorosa is indeed a reliable source?

  87. I hear you Admin…their point, CNN, was to have two women that know Donald express their opinion of how Donald treats women…and that is who they asked…

    and in that context they spoke strongly for DT

  88. Wbboei says:

    Their chickens, Chickens, CHICKENS have come home to roost. It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. They were supposed to be clear of the bank when the bomb went off. Alas, the best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley.

    Wbboei…so much for the ‘Obama Coalition’…

    If you goal is what you suggest it is—to elect Cruz, then you are making a strategic mistakes by praying for Donald’s demise. Donald is attacking the establishment just as your candidate is, and as long as he remains on stage he gives your candidate cover. Remove him from the stage and your candidate will be on front street. You think that is a good thing because of his political skills. Your operating assumption is that those skills will carry the day. I would remind you that Hillary won 24 of the 26 debates in 2008 based on her superior debating skills, which at that time in her life, but not now, rivaled those of Cruz. What killed her was the big media hit job–the twisting of her words, the false accusations of racism, the beautification of her opponent, the showing her for an instant and then the cutting away to Obama making some speech and never returning to her, the constant headlines of NYT that the skies were darkening for her, the backroom deals, the sexist attacks—all that and more will be visited on the head of your fair haired boy, whom as you know I like, but unlike you I have no illusions that his superior debate skills will be enough to counter the tidal wave of lies which will come at him, if Donald leaves the stage. And that is why your desire to see Donald gone asap is counterproductive to your end game if that end game is what you say it is. This is not some video game, it is reality.

  90. S, at this point in the political life of the nation Omorosa is a paragon of virtue and reliability. That she defended Trump is no surprise. Omorosa is a reliable source unlike almost the entirety of the Democratic and Republican political class.

  91. I agree admin…we live in a time that celebrates Kim K as some paragon of ‘whatever’

    the surprising thing is that CNN even took the time to put anyone on to speak on behalf of DT

    listening the am to these panels on all the shows…they are all speaking from the same script

    the only thing i heard at all that seperated itself from the flock…was John Heinleman(sp) saying in response to the consensus of everyone that 20% was DT ceiling…

    Heinleman ceded that it could be his ‘floor’…so in the political life you so rightly refer to…John H was going way out on a limb to dare to even suggest that…

    what a pathetic and predicable bunch on every show this am

  92. The other thing Donald is doing is exposing big media for what it is. And I forgot to mention–just as Hillary won Michigan and Florida in 2008 only to have them taken away from her by the DNC–RBC on May 31 of that year, big media took her debate victories away from her by the way they salted their post debate panels with Obama supporters. Pay attention now because this is what you can look forward to. Assuming Donald does not win the game outright, which would offend you, but not most of us, the longer he remains on stage, the more he bloodies the nose of big media and shows them for what they really are. If we had a more perceptive electorate this would not be necessary, because the overreaching we are seeing right now is open and notorious. But we have to be practical and acknowledge that the public at large lacks those critical thinking skills and is motivated by an attraction to bright shiny objects and an aversion to things that go bump in the night. Just as we saw with illegal immigration, Donald is the lamplighter, and the antecdote to ignorance, complacency. and a wholesale abdication of the self government.

    wbb,

    How in all of mother earth did you find these two political heavyweights on the web?!? You are a TRUE investigator my friend!!!

    Hillary 2016?

  94. If Bernie can’t handle a handful of ‘Black lives matter’ protesters taking over his stage, he is too weak to even be considered a candidate.

    I enjoyed that video!

    I agree.. Always nice to hear from people who tell it how it is, the truth with the bark off, etc.

  96. Wbboei…so much for the ‘Obama Coalition’…

    Yes yes yes.

    The key to a coalition is stability.

    They may share the common goal of defeating the common enemy.

    BUT, an internal power struggle must be resolved in the beginning.

    Otherwise, a civil war will later ensue, when you can least afford it.

    This one will be hard to tamp down because they chosen to make identity politics their sine qua non.

    It is a variant of tribal politics.

    If you want another example besides the dimocrat party, I commend to your attention the Afghan Army.

    This stuff is way over the heads of Harvard people, but in the real world it is critical.

  97. The Republican Party suffers from a similar malaise.

    The ethnic cleansing of conservative from the party had driven a schism wider than the grand canyon through the center of that party.

    Moreover, there is no party leader.

    Romney and sometimes McCain aspire to that role.

    But they are perceived as failures by the base of the party.

  98. I was not on board for Hwc bashing. I thought it was a joke
    The thing does not stop. Ever. It is awful. Why does it make everyone hate Ted Cruz. DOES IT HAVE AN Agenda?+

    You have noted it’s Obola policy support yourself is conclusion of at least one of your discussions with it. I believe it is so in that it supported the TPP going so far as to promote the false narrative of the Dems for approving it. It also got too noticeably nasty when some of their core values were attacked. I do believe it is either from the Obola or Soros camp.

    Numerous members, Admin and now Henry have noticed there is something wrong here, yet it persists.

  100. Hwc: I support Trump all the way, because I think the Washington cartel is the enemy, and I believe he as the Borsht Belt skills to expose them. The admonition I gave you about intervening in his life and death struggle with the cartel is mirrored in the book The Conduct of War, by the man who invented the doctrine of Blietzkreig, British General Fuller who rose to flag rank while he was still in his 20s, and became in later life one of the foremost military historians of the 20th century. His thesis mirrored that of the Prussian General Clausewitz, that war must not become unrestricted violence, but must remain at all times an instrument of diplomatic policy:
    —————
    “There is a very good historical precedent for a thesis which belongs to the creme of the diplomatic tradition—that if two rival giants are struggling for control of the continent, and if you are unwilling to let them fight it out by themselves, choose carefully the time of your intervention into their conflict and see that you intervene only in time to save which ever of the two may be losing that struggle in the moment. For as long as there are two of these giants on the continent the world can breathe. But if you devote a war of righteousness to the purpose of destroying one of them then you are using your blood and treasure to build up the other into a greater monster than the other, and you will infallibly have to face it in the next stage of the story.”

    I believe Cruz understands that principle to a fare thee well, which is why he refuses to attack Donald. As a Cruz supporter or as a Hillary supporter who recognizes that the real enemy is the cartel, it stands to reason that we should too.

  101. The Stump for Trump girls have hit the big time. They are the headline on Drudge. I love those women. They are going all out against Kelley and Fox. I hope he notices them soon. You cannot buy that kind of fantastic commentary.

    it took awhile for me to realize it has no interest in crooze. only interest is to inflame and spread malcontent amongst posters. just another tired old bot facing the end of an era. the sun is setting on all of them. thank God.

  103. You have noted it’s Obola policy support yourself is conclusion of at least one of your discussions with it.
    ——-
    I may have noted that was the effect.

    But I have never suggested that was the motivation.

    You have got to come up with some proof that is what he intended

    Otherwise to me it looks like an unintended consequence

    To which I will say this much: shame on him for not seeing it.

  104. What he should have seen is this trade bill guts the Constitution, which is the cornerstone of his candidacy.

    Absolutely and this is what many of us have been saying.

  106. The daughter of one of my two closest friends, now deceased, ran an art gallery in the City of San Antonio. Her former husband was a Hispanic lawyer, and her son is an investment deal maker, and one of the finest people I have met.

    Despite her roots in the Hispanic community, and her friendship with their one time mayor Henry Cisneros, her gallery closed due in part to the preference of local art buyers who were Hispanic for artists who were Hispanic featured by art dealers who were Hispanic. She on the other hand was Swiss.

    This is one more example of identity politics. The purpose of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was to make race a neutral fact. However the 1972 Amendments to that act established that race was a controlling factor. It has been that way ever since. And that is where so much of the mischief which is afoot today, including the BLM movement really began.

    Proof? Like I can prove what someone else is thinking? Not going to happen.

    Behaviors have been pointed out here often enough to establish intention. Are you seriously telling me that you do not see something seriously wrong with its behavior towards Henry?
