Comedy Tonight: Obama Economy Vs. #Hillary2016 – @RealDonaldTrump In Mobile Alabama – Donald Trump Eagle – #BlackLivesMatter #FeelTheBern Tinfoil

Update: Question, why is Trump holding a mega-rally in Alabama tonight? Answer: Because he can.

——————————

The stock market fell over 350 points yesterday and today it is 530 points down. Could the DOW fall to 5000? Might the worst just be beginning and the presidential race will take place during a recession? This Obama economy news does not help anyone who runs as the “third Obama term.” Memo to #Hillary2016: use your money to buy a clue. Read what we wrote years ago #Hillary2016 to see the future.

The years of the Obama economy lethargy and stocks sink is a metaphor for the boob called Barack Obama. The same listless blah, the same fakery, the same awakening in America to the flim-flam scam and the consequences of same.

The stink is now overwhelming. In 2008 as the Obama Denver Corinthian column faker was in full scam we warned, and mourned, that Obama was the death of the Democratic Party. The rigor mortis has set in. With the rotted corpse before him, white liberal Obama supporter Jeff Greenfield in Politico, performed last rites, seven years after we did:

Democratic Blues

Barack Obama will leave his party in its worst shape since the Great Depression—even if Hillary wins.

As historians begin to assess Barack Obama’s record as president, there’s at least one legacy he’ll leave that will indeed be historic—but not in the way he would have hoped. Even as Democrats look favorably ahead to the presidential landscape of 2016, the strength in the Electoral College belies huge losses across much of the country. In fact, no president in modern times has presided over so disastrous a stretch for his party, at almost every level of politics. [snip]

Yet when you move from policy to politics, the task is a lot simpler—just measure the clout of the president’s party when he took office and when he left it. By that measure, Obama’s six years have been terrible. [snip]

The first signs of the slowly unfolding debacle that has meant the decimation of the Democratic Party nationally began early—with the special election of Scott Brown to Ted Kennedy’s empty Senate seat in Massachusetts. [snip]

The party’s record over the past six years has made clear that when Barack Obama leaves office in January 2017 the Democratic Party will have ceded vast sections of the country to Republicans, and will be left with a weak bench of high-level elected officials. It is, in fact, so bleak a record that even if the Democrats hold the White House and retake the Senate in 2016, the party’s wounds will remain deep and enduring, threatening the enactment of anything like a “progressive” agenda across much of the nation and eliminating nearly a decade’s worth of rising stars who might help strengthen the party in elections ahead. [snip]

Eight years later, when he leaves office in 2017 at 55, he’ll actually be one of the party’s only leaders not eligible for Social Security. [snip]

Barack Obama took office in 2009 with 60 Democrats in the Senate—counting two independents who caucused with the party—and 257 House members. Today, there are 46 members of the Senate Democratic caucus, the worst showing since the first year after the Reagan landslide. Across the Capitol, there are 188 Democrats in the House, giving Republicans their best showing since Herbert Hoover took the White House in 1929.

This is, however, the tip of the iceberg. When you look at the states, the collapse of the party’s fortunes are worse. Republicans now hold 31 governorships, nine more than they held when Obama was inaugurated. During the last six years the GOP has won governorships in purple and even deep blue states: Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio. [snip]

Now turn to state legislatures—although if you’re a loyal Democrat, you may want to avert your eyes. In 2009, Democrats were in full control of 27 state legislatures; Republicans held full power in 14. Now? The GOP is in full control of 30 state legislatures; Democrats hold full power in just 11. In 24 states, Republicans control the governorship and both houses of the legislature—giving them total control over the political process. That increased power at the state level has already led to serious consequences for Democrats, for their political future and for their goals.

“It’s almost a crime,” Democratic Party Vice Chair Donna Brazile says. “We have been absolutely decimated at the state and local level.”

Taken as a whole, these six years have been almost historically awful for Democrats. [snip]

No two-term president in recent times has seen his party clobbered in both midterm elections. [snip]

The losses of U.S. Senate seats and gubernatorial offices across the country have left the party starved for next generation leaders…. [snip]

The big GOP gains in the House came in 2010, when Democrats lost 64 House seats—the worst midterm showing for a party since 1894. Moreover, in 2014, the Republicans won nine Senate seats—and you can’t gerrymander a state. [snip]

For Republicans, the explanation for Democratic travails is more straightforward: Voters don’t like what Obama and his party has been doing. “Today, the greatest problem Obama has is that the economy has not gotten better in the Obama years, except for those at the top. For most people, it’s either the same or worse,” says Stuart Stevens, who piloted Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign. And, he adds, the signature achievement of the president, “Obamacare,” proved so unpopular in 2014—in large part thanks to the disastrous website rollout—that Democratic candidates were wary of even raising it.

Greenfield is not writing anything we have not written repeatedly. We write this same stuff every few months, or weeks. But Hillary2016 has not listened to us. Maybe Hillary2016 will listen to Greenfield. Maybe Hillary2016 will wake up from drunken stupor, open eyes, and realize that a “third Obama term” as a campaign strategy is STUPID. LOSER STUPID.

Hillary2016 is not the only campaign that is LOSER STUPID. Consider Bernie Sanders, or Saint Bernard of the Green Mountains, as we mockingly refer to him. Saint Bernard was born in Brooklyn. Pardon us as we race-bait like an Obama supporter before a prison crowd, but perhaps it was all those black people in Brooklyn that scared Saint Bernard into moving to a much whiter, much nicer Vermont.

Whatever the reasons for the white flight of Saint Bernard, Saint Bernard has not had dealings with black people other than in cute protests from half a century ago. So now Saint Bernard supporters are hatin’ on black people because these black people are showing up most unbecomingly at Saint Bernard rallies. The Saint Barnard supporters are barking that those black people are part of a conspiracy:

Online And In Person, Bernie Sanders’ White Supporters Advance A Black Lives Matter Conspiracy

Someone’s pulling the strings, some upset white Sanders supporters tell each other. Black activists say the persistent criticism (and theories, racism, and misogyny) from the Bernie faithful proves that many white leftists just don’t get it.

At a recent Bernie Sanders event, Dave, a white fiftysomething in a Grateful Dead hat, offered an explanation for Black Lives Matter, the activist group that had interrupted Sanders just hours earlier in Seattle.

They weren’t activists. They were “agent provocateurs,” Dave said, sent by the Democratic establishment to quash the Vermont socialist’s message. [snip]

The conspiracy theories are hiding in plain sight at Sanders’ giant rallies. The crowds are mostly white and mostly frustrated by the confrontations with black activists some Sanders supporters say are doing nothing but tearing down the only candidate who truly believes in the Black Lives Matter cause. But some of Sanders’ backers even take it a step further. Online and in person, this set of white Sanders fans wonder aloud if there’s some outside force causing the protest movement to target the senator.

The basic mythology is that someone — maybe frontrunner Hillary Clinton, maybe the Republicans, maybe her billionaire backers, maybe even the FBI — is using Black Lives Matter to tear Sanders down, to diminish an insurgent candidacy that, the supporters say, is viewed as a real threat by the establishment.

If Hillary2016 was behind the #BlackLivesMatter attacks against Saint Bernard we would be shocked because it would display a semblance of intelligence. Saint Bernard is barking up the wrong tree if he thinks #Hillary2016 is that quick, smart, or capable. We would love it if it was true. But sadly, that would require what Hillary2016 lacks in intelligence, strategy, tactics, or ability.

The barking mad supporters of Saint Bernard don’t seem to understand that the reason why #BlackLivesMatter thugs target Saint Bernard rallies is because Saint Bernard rolls over and plays dead the minute they arrive.

Donald Trump had it right when he mocked Saint Bernard for being “weak” in regards to #BlackLivesMatter. Donald Trump is not weak so he can smell the unusual stink of fear from far away. Donald Trump is an eagle.



That eagle Donald Trump so resembles is called “Uncle Sam.” Donald Trump and Uncle Sam both live very high up in the sky and they have a very cute pout and pensive mien.

Donald Trump is very like the eagle. If we think about what kind of bird Bernie Sanders resembles it would have to be something small and feather-headed, like a finch or hummingbird (our apologies to finches and hummingbirds). Jeb Bush? What kind of bird is Jeb Bush? Um, a pigeon?

Compare and contrast how Donald Trump answered a question about the term “anchor babies” and the way Jeb Bush answered the same question a short time later. We provide the evidence via Youtube:



Jeb Bush comes off as a loser. It’s not even a matter of what he says. It’s a matter of body language and the way humans communicate that makes it easy to see the difference between eagle Donald Trump and pigeon Jeb Bush. The race for the GOP nomination is between Trump and the establishment candidate Jeb Bush. There is no other. As to energy level, Trump is already the winner.

Via television we will all be able to witness the energy Trumpnado. For all the skepticism that Trump really has a chance to be president, even long time liberal analysts are saying that yup, this time things might really be different. That maybe Trump might trump.

Tonight in Mobile, Alabama, there will be a Donald Trump rally. Tens of thousands of people will attend as the eagle lands. It’s supposed to start at 7:30 p.m. ET. There are some very good reasons for Trump to be in Alabama tonight. Call this the Southern rally, not just an Alabama rally. Tonight is key. We’ll be watching.

  1. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/dow-5000-yes-it-could-happen-2015-08-21

    Opinion: Dow 5,000? Yes, it could happen

    I don’t mean to be alarmist or to induce panic, but someone needs to tell the public that there is a plausible scenario in which the U.S. stock market now collapses by another 70% until the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls to about 5,000. The index tumbled more than 3% to 16,460 on Friday.

    Dow 5,000? Really?

    I’m not predicting that will happen, but contrary to what the bulls tell you, it cannot be completely ruled out.

    And even if that ranks as an outlier and a worst-case scenario, there are other, more likely scenarios where the Dow falls to somewhere between 10,000 and 12,000.

    In other words, although this might be a buying opportunity, a serious reading of history suggests this week’s sell-off might also be the beginning.

    Let me say on the record that I am not joining the perma-bears or extreme doom-mongers. I am simply pointing out that the perma-bulls have taken their own arguments way too far. The stock market is not doomed to collapse to oblivion, as some hysterics keep claiming. But it is not certain to keep going up by 10% a year, either. All those claiming that every sell-off is a buying opportunity, and that stocks “always outperform,” are lying to you.

  2. http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-08-21/trump-thinks-alabama-is-key-to-winning-the-gop-nomination

    It turns out, according to two Trump associates I spoke with, that Trump views Alabama, and the other Southern states that hold March 1st primaries, as the key to locking down the Republican nomination. The stadium rally is also a way to deepen his identification with Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, who lives in Mobile and whose view on immigrants and immigration—he’s mainly against both—Trump shares. As Sessions told me, he and Trump appeal to the same type of voters, “a lot of middle-class working people, who don’t trust establishment messaging. I call it ‘honest populism.’”

  3. It is beyond the DJIA. It is a global and it is bad. It could take weeks or even months, but yes, a DJIA of 5,000 is a real possibility. They will try to call for more QE to do more looting, but it will not fix anything.

    They had some magical theory about economic escape velocity. Liftoff. These are our “World Leaders”. Get them all some propeller beanies.

  4. Just saw TRUMP AirForce One flying over Alabama stadium

    Tumpalicius!

    Can’t pay for that kind of advertising

  5. This email scandal is getting much worse. I just read news article that Biden is actually making moves for early state ballet petitions, etc and that’ he’ll announce the week before summer ends .. around September 15.

    If Biden gets in it means she is totally history. Biden will be looked at as more “credible” of Obama 3rd term vs Hillary being seen as extension but “uncredible”

    DAMN what made her do that shit.

  6. Really amazing Nadler comes out in support of Iran deal. With “so called” supporters of Israel like him, who needs enemies. I simply can’t understand how the democratic party, and almost all it’s Jewish members support a deal that ultimately will allow Iran to to develop the nuclear bombs.

  7. Anchor on CNN trying to make Trump look bad as stadium does not have 40k people…one commentator claims it was a rookie mistake as the story line will be stadium more than half empty and substantially less than 40k…

  8. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/donald-trump-martin-omalley-2016-election-121592.html?ml=po

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.

    In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.

    “And then he apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said, according to a clip aired on “Fox and Friends.”

    O’Malley, in fact was “politically incorrect” with his apology, Trump remarked.

    “How can you apologize when you say black lives matter — which is true — white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter] — which is true. And then they get angry because you said white and all…we don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?” Trump asked.

  9. Donald just acknowledged Jeff Sessions’ contribution to immigration policy; had him come up to say a few words. Amazing.

  10. Spot on, admin.

    I think I wrote a comment saying that Hillary needs to employ some dirty tactics. Don’t think she will, and that will be to her own detriment. Time is running out. Not because November is fast approaching, but because her message, and that of the entire party, is disintegrating. One of the greatest African authors, Chinua Achebe, gave voice to the happenings of Hillary and the Democratic party as a whole – Things fall apart and the center cannot hold.

    And with more news of Democrats illogical actions coming out everyday, those words ring truer and truer.

    Momentum for Iran deal as NY lawmaker announces backing

    It is easy to see why dems have lost support across the board, which has translated into seats of power in corridors across the nation. I felt my first bout of trepidation when the news reported that Gore had lost Tennessee. You should not be allowed in the White House if you lose your own state. You cannot win your state if you alienate the people in your own house. When Donut Brazil claimed the birth of a new coalition at the expense of the core was future of the party signaled the beginning of the end.

    Hillary is running out of time. Fast. She has to position herself completely opposite of Bumbles the goon BEFORE the first democratic debate. She has to roll out subtle differences now and get more overt as the debate gets near. She must eschew her plan as it stands now.

    Or else I greet President Trump with open arms and my vote.

    Hillary 2016?

  11. What really does come out when Trump is speaking, is how Obola has really destroyed the country. We are being left to be a welfare state. Totally looted. And small business has been hog tied to try do anything productive.

  12. That’s something you don’t see very often. A Presidential candidate on stage with his family leading the audience in prayer.

    Interesting political event tonight in Des Moines. Rally for Religious Liberty with a candidate bringing together a dozen people from around the country who have lost their jobs or their businesses or their spouses due to their religious faith. Most powerful was the wife of Pastor Said Abedin who has been in an Iranian prison for three years for Christian missionary work.

  13. From last thead:

    1. You’re welcome, S – just calling it as I see it 🙂

    2. It’s never too early to teach young children to revel in racial discord fomented by radical intellectuals who believe American society is hopelessly and structurally oppressive.

    http://dailycaller.com/2015/08/21/professor-introduces-black-lives-matter-book-for-white-sixth-graders/

    Foxy, I’m kind of thinking, that since they’re literally killing us and we’re not doing the same, that maybe the priority for these teachers would be to get “white lives matter” books and give to black sixth graders!

  14. like a finch or hummingbird

    Oh, I’d say finch. Hummingbirds exert soooo much energy. Doesn’t seem similar to BushIII, and Trump recently commented that BushIII is a low energy guy and won’t be able to get much done lol

  15. So it is finally beginning to dawn on a few Dims that O has done a hatchet job on the party? These guys are sharp as tacks aren’t they? Only took them seven years to figure things out!! As the Dims ponder the loss of support the party has experienced thus far, and worry about future losses, this song is for them from a former Dem turned PUMA in 2008 –

  16. Cruz has had an awesome couple of days in Iowa. Keep in mind that his whole strategy is to win the all-important evangelical vote in the state.

    1) Yesterday, the nationally syndicated evangelical talk show host who broadcasts from Des Moines endorsed him. This is the guy who endorsed the Huckster in 2008 (won the Iowa caucus). The guy not only endorsed Cruz, but did half his show yesterday explaining why he chose Cruz over his other three finalists (Walker, Huckabee, Jindal). http://stevedeace.com/news/the-final-four/

    The explanation was simple. Cruz was the only candidate who could consolidate the entire conservative base (Tony Perkins AND Charles Koch) and who had the resources to run a national campaign and beat the establishment squish.

    He not only endorsed him, but said that he was going to do everything in his power to push his candidacy. This endorsement is a death blow to Huckabee (and Santorum, but his last rights had already been pronounced).

    2) The Rally for Religious Liberty was a rallying call for evangelicals in Iowa. For real attendance of 2500 people. Speakers included the aforementioned Steve Deace and the dean of conservative Iowa politics, Steve King.

    3) The viral YouTube of the religious freedom debate with a gay actress while flipping pork chops was the cherry on top of the messaging sundae for Cruz’ intended evangelical audience.

    4) Cruz is naming an evangelical pastor leader/organizer in each of Iowa’s 99 counties.

    Bonus good news, this campaign strategy/discipline is still (sort of) flying under the media radar, although they are are starting to catch on. It never ceases to amaze me how the beltway pundits are so clueless about Republican politics.

  17. Trump very clearly and forcefully said he will keep saying “anchor baby”. When Bush was asked, he turned away from the reporter and then made a face about having to answer that question. He ended it by weasling and saying, “I said ‘what others call anchor babies”. As Trump did, he also rejected the 7 word substitute suggested by a reporter (I think it was something like “babies who are born in America by mothers who are not citizens”.

    But, I’m thinking, Bush’s idea could work – “the babies born in America formerly called by others as anchor babies”

    Hey it worked for Prince – whoops – the artist formerly known as Prince (who of course next became the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince). But that middle name, during that time – that seemed to have worked for him – the artist formerly known as prince – the artist whom others would call ‘Prince’ – the babies whom others have called anchor babies……

    I think Trump should take up the KISS slogan – keep it simple, st*pid! lol

    These politicians – Trump not included – of both parties want to pander to certain demographic, activist groups. If they had a brain in their heads, they would realize if they make a pact to basically ignore all the over the top demands, then those groups couldn’t be holding them hostage and making it silly season all the time.

  18. For Bernie Boy – a little tune to cheer you up. Those meanies from BLM can be so difficult.

    Play That Funky Music White Boy

  19. If you don’t think Trump is pandering to the anti-immigration sentiment, how do you reconcile Trump 2016 with the Trump 2012 version:

    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Donald-Trump-Ronald-Kessler/2012/11/26/id/465363/

    The Republican Party will continue to lose presidential elections if it comes across as mean-spirited and unwelcoming toward people of color, Donald Trump tells Newsmax.

    Whether intended or not, comments and policies of Mitt Romney and other Republican candidates during this election were seen by Hispanics and Asians as hostile to them, Trump says.

    “Republicans didn’t have anything going for them with respect to Latinos and with respect to Asians,” the billionaire developer says.

    “The Democrats didn’t have a policy for dealing with illegal immigrants, but what they did have going for them is they weren’t mean-spirited about it,” Trump says. “They didn’t know what the policy was, but what they were is they were kind.”

    Romney’s solution of “self deportation” for illegal aliens made no sense and suggested that Republicans do not care about Hispanics in general, Trump says.

    “He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal,” Trump says. “It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote,” Trump notes. “He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”

    The GOP has to develop a comprehensive policy “to take care of this incredible problem that we have with respect to immigration, with respect to people wanting to be wonderful productive citizens of this country,” Trump says.

    I bet he gets on on his plane to fly back to NYC after these rallies and says, “see ya, suckers….”

  20. New bumper sticker slogan – If you don’t like the term, ‘anchor baby’, then DON’T HAVE one!

    (and if you don’t like the term, ‘illegal alien’, then don’t BE one!)

    I used to be really good about p.c. language, not wanting to offend others. But they’ve taken this stuff to such extremes, even with “trigger warnings”, etc, that I’m so fed up. They need to go back to elementary school and sing, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”. Or perhaps there’s an evil conspiracy, and they’ve been harvesting the spines out of our younger generation. Whatever it is, they need to knock if off and get a real life. The rest of us retain our constitutionally guaranteed free speech.

    You special snowflakes are NOT the “norm”, and we’re not going to rearrange our whole world because you have chosen to be a woman from days of yore who would faint. All I know is that the women from the first wave who chained themselves to the White House fence then had to be force fed like poor geese being tortured into becoming foie gras – well they’re probably turning over in their graves at these special snowflakes. Seriously, if you need a “trigger warning”, then you need to go live as a bubble girl or bubble boy. Leave the rest of us out of it.

  21. That’s something you don’t see very often. A Presidential candidate on stage with his family leading the audience in prayer.

    hwc – I get it that this kind of things really appeals to the very religious. It turns some others off, though, people who feel that religion is a personal thing and should not be involved with government. There are different levels of religiosity, but most people consider themselves to be religious or spiritual to some extent. But many of them don’t take it to the level that some others do, and so they are often also turned off by so much religion in campaigning, in government.

    So a candidate doing something like this is going to appeal to a rather small group, IMO, and he’ll probably limit the display of this behavior to those places that he’s pretty confident are going to appreciate it – because so many people don’t.

    Anchor on CNN trying to make Trump look bad as stadium does not have 40k people…one commentator claims it was a rookie mistake as the story line will be stadium more than half empty and substantially less than 40k…

    But as we know, they didn’t bother with “the stadium story line” when O’s events weren’t filled, and they pushed everyone into one section, then put a huge sheet behind O to hide the larger, unfilled part of the stadium…..

  23. lol Donna Brazile needs to write us an apology letter, saying how sorry she is for having said they just need urban and nonwhite people for the new improved party, apologizing for her rude and totally incorrect pronouncements. Matter of fact, her ‘mama’ should have suggested this to her already!

    Then we accept her apology and she thinks we’re coming back. And then we blow raspberries at her ROFL maybe blow TRUMPets at her. (I can’t stand her)

  24. Does anyone have a link to tonight’s Trump speech? I’ve tried a couple of versions, and after the very beginning, I can hardly hear him…

  25. Okay, Wifeypoo had the feed from Mobile on last night. I wasn’t impressed by any aspect of it and was turned off by the extended bragging. Sure, it’s Trump and he’s going to do some of that, but come on. Maybe that type of thing plays well in some parts of the country, but not in the South. Intuitively, he’ll probably carry every southern state by a wide margin simply because the others are just flat, or as Donald says, “low energy”, but cut the self-aggrandizement down by about 2/3, Donald, and give us specifics”.

    ————————-
    One of the most important point Trump made was about how depressed the Nation is. Not just economically. The bragging is part of a positive attitude that the Republic can be restored and prosperity returned. This is what Trumps big appeal is. Americans are remarkable. It is our leadership that has dragged us down. All we need is decent leadership to thrive. And the leader does not need to be a rocket scientist. He just needs to be on our side.

    We face a choice. Either we will become the “have nots” and be reduced to poverty or we will have to fight for the prosperity to maintain our standards of living. And that includes things like clean air and safe food and drinking water. It is not about two houses, three cars and 5 TVs. It is about health and safety. And most of all, freedom.

    They have kept Americans so overwhelmed with day-to-day mess that they have not been rallied on the big picture.

    TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

  27. I *get* that Lu, and emphatically agree with all you’ve said, but it was waaaaaaaaaay excessive. Like I said, he’s going to do some of that b/c that’s who he is, but he needs to cut it by about 2/3.

    I love that Lorac. I would get one for sure. 😀

  30. blow…I understand what you mean…particularly for those of us who are following Trump very closely…we have heard some of those things over and over again…however it is part of the routine that many of these people are just tuning in to…

    I am willing to bet a large percentage of those people there never heard DT’s speech start to finish…maybe they heard a little here or there, bits and pieces…most of us here are so called ‘political junkies’…but I will bet many in that crowd…and in the South and across the USA, for that matter, haven’t heard DT’s whole ‘speech/routine’ from start to finish…so this is all new for them…and he is really entertaining and fun…it is all part of his show (sometimes he reminds me of those old time comedians)

    so it is part of his ‘stump speech’ so to speak…I agree, he could edit out a few of I’m rich, I’m smart…but if you listen to his, what I would call, more of a ‘discussion’, last night…he says “WE”…’we are going to do this’, ‘we are going to do that’ definitly way beyond O and his “I, me, my’…and frankly a lot more than anyone else out there…

    I think it is because he is still introducing himself to so many people from different walks in life and it is part of his ‘conversational style’

    at the end of the whole event last night, I think people, especially people that are really new to this and maybe don’t even vote…they walk away from that event and feel they know Donald better and I bet many of them believe he is taking them with him on they way to winning and making things better…

    so I am cutting him some slack regarding that part…

  31. this is more info on what I was referring to yesterday regarding our borders…and Ben Carson’s visit there…the man’s name making the statements about our border is Arizona Sheriff Babeu

    I think most of us here know this is going on…but when it becomes factually illustrated and spelled out by officials and candidates it is just so unbelievable that our US government is allowing this to continue…

    …just who does our US government think that allowing this border invasion is hurting the most…I would suggest the hardest hurt are our inner city kids, especially young AA males…many of these kids have no jobs and the last resort is to sell drugs…and then end up in jail…so our US govt is sacrificing our kids to allow drug cartels to continue to invade and profit from their illegal activity…

    Sheriff Paul Babeu: Mexican Drug Cartels With AK-47s Control American Soil

    With AK-47-armed drug cartels controlling “many areas on American soil” — including territory just 30 miles from Phoenix, Arizona — GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson did suggest drone strikes against them, says Sheriff Paul Babeu.

    “This is literally an unsecured border. We have cartels that think they own the place,” Babeu, the sheriff of Arizona’s Pinal County, said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

    “They control many areas on American soil and this is how they freely move billions of dollars of drugs and hundreds of thousands of illegals into our country.”

    Dennis Welch of Phoenix television station KTVK reported after Carson’s border visit on Wednesday that he asked the candidate whether he would consider using drones on the border.

    “I’m suggesting we do what we need to do to secure the border whatever that is,” Carson said.

    Welch tweeted “GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson open to using military drone strikes on American soil to secure the border.”

    He quoted Carson as saying, “You look at some of these caves and things out there one drone strike, boom, and they’d gone.”

    Some on Twitter disputed that, saying Carson likely meant he would use drones for surveillance, but Babeu told Cavuto guest host Charles Payne on Thursday the reporter got it right.

    “Ben Carson mentioned absolutely use drones, and maybe have the idea of a missile strike to blow up these cartel lookouts where they live,” he said, adding that some members of the media were aghast he said such a thing.

    “He goes, ‘We’re fighting a war here. We should talk to military leaders and law enforcement leaders to see what we need to do to fight back,'” the sheriff said.

    Babeu, who gave Carson his daylong tour of the border along with his deputies, said the retired neurosurgeon left him impressed.

    “We need a new president because this president just ain’t cutting it,” he said. “He has literally handcuffed us, releasing 67,000 criminals. … So we need a new president who is going to stand up for America and enforce our laws and secure the border.”

    A perfect example of what does not work.

    An effort to persuade a broken record to listen and adjust her position.

    Gay people have been “persecuted:.

    Therefore, the rest of society should give them anything they want.

    Regardless of what they want.

    And regardless of the fact that they never did the persecuting themselves.

    If wonder if stop with gay reparations, or would they demand more.

    Bottom line?

    Singing to pigs.

    Its a waste of time.

    And it annoys the pigs.

  33. btw…somehow it escapes some Cruzites that Ted Cruz is speaking in agreement and highly supportive of Donald Trump…

    …perhaps it is a strategy to get DT’s vote if DT fails, (or a job in a DT admin) however I think most people are coming around to the fact that DT does not plan on failing and will never leave this race without a full out fight to win…

  34. Again, this is not a request for equality.

    It is a demand for affirmative action.

    And the elites?

    They promote this kind of shit.

    And people like Soros finance these agitators.

    Their goal is to break down the culture, the family and religion.

    There must be no religion but secular state religion.

    Driven by elite opinion and thought police.

    And we will use technology to enslave all of you.

    Not now perhaps, but in the fulsomeness of time.

    Our strategy is to boil the frog.

    And now, a word from our sponsor.

    Hi.

    My name is Mitch McConnell.

    As majority leader I would like to do something about this.

    But Obama has the power so I am not optimistic.

    And now, back to Failure Theater, starring Bob Corker.

    Who is tying himself to the railroad track over Iran.

    After his master stroke of turning on the engine.

    His last words: I will give my life for the Chamber of Commerce.

    foxy…they never disappoint…love them…

  36. This business with China has preceded and superceded the customary pump and dump at election time. The key to pump and dump is to get out at the market top. If this thing does not recover, and the elites will attempt to do just that, to get their money back, then some of them may be eyeing the window ledge and the flag pole atop the tall building they work in with a certain degree of apprehension, wondering whether it will all end there, and how the Olympic Judges will score their belly flop down down down from the clouds to terra firma. The worst thing when a different class of people, young immigrant girls, where locked in sweat shops in lower Manhattan, encountered a fire and jumped out windows to their death, while the wives of the masters of the gilded age looked on, and the International Lady Garment Workers was born.

  37. So a candidate doing something like this is going to appeal to a rather small group,

    Hard to say how small a group it is. The Cruz campaign cites statistics that there are 90 million evangelical Christians in the United States, but their specific focus is on evangelical Christians in Iowa, a group that is 57% of the Republican caucus voters.

    That particular voting block, to the extent that it can be organized to attend a caucus, is organized at the church level.

    http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/08/22/ted-cruz-seeking-converts-to-his-campaign-rallies-iowa-evangelicals/

    The rally sometimes had the feeling of a daytime talk show, and at other moments of a religious revival, as the audience gave standing ovations to the guests for expressing their religious faith. But its purpose was entirely political.

    A caucus sign-up card and a pen were on every chair. Saying that millions of evangelical Christians had sat out recent elections, Mr. Cruz shouted, “I’m here to tell you we will stay home no longer.”

    Mr. Cruz’s strategy for winning Iowa is to consolidate Republicans now supporting other conservative candidates like former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, and to position himself to scoop up supporters of Donald J. Trump, whose appeal the Cruz campaign believes will wither by the winter.

    Mr. Cruz’s campaign, which spent a month organizing Friday’s rally, has focused on how to triumph in Iowa with such precision that it let slip the exact number of votes it must win: 28,957. (Every campaign has such a number, but rarely lets it get out.)

    I find it fascinating. I haven’t been in a church since I can remember, so this voting block, especially the evangelical side, is personally foreign to me, but it’s a large block. Cruz did a event in Georgia last month at a large evangelical church north of Macon. The church brought in the Charlie Daniels Band for entertainment.

  38. A sample of the Cruz revival meeting. Cruz and the wife of the Pastor imprisoned in Iran. Cruz had tried to get a Senate vote on his amendment keeping the sanctions in place until he and three other American political prisoners are returned:

  39. One of the best lessons I learned was from my friend Herb Stern, who jbstonesfan knows, a guy who touched many lives in our profession, and made of us, far better litigators. He said never read and opening statement to a jury. Write it out and then tear it up. When you go before a jury, and you know this too blowmeobama, you have got to come across as you–and not as some automoton reading a bunch of words. If read a beautifully written script, you will deprive yourself of the non verbal communication skills everyone has which are just as important as the words you say. Herb used to say I never know the exact words I will use, but if I know the subject matter well enough then they will come to me in the moment. This has been one of the great failings of the pudits when they evaluate Trump, and it is what constantly seems to baffle them. They are such connoseurs of words that they miss the greater half of what he is. Granted. There are times when words matter, like when you are signing a contract, or reading a will. But when you are in the thoes of an emotional contest or transaction, its the emotions–and momentum is what counts, that is what makes Trump so unique, and so much more than the words that matter. The other thing is the tone he uses, which scares the billie be jiggards out of the comfortable elite class is in perfect pitch with the sentiment and emotions of the people—and I don’t mean just the crowd, I mean anyone who realizes that they game is rigged, the American people are being sold down the river by both parties, and the only one who can change that is a game changer with a broad set of skills far beyond the capabilities of politicians.

  41. Amazing to me that the UK Daily frequently points out the stadium was not full…and even contradict themselves. At the beginning of the article they state that of the 40,000 seats, about 10,000 were empty. So 75% filled. Later they say that the stadium was only half full. 75% does not equal 50% unless you are using a Dim calculator. Regardless…..who the F#@K else is pulling 30,000 people to their rally? Correct answer = NOBODY. Daily Mail is just another glorified ass wipe.

  42. I think both of you are right. The bragging is donald being donald, and it serves his political purposes, up to a point. It does impress upon the reader the fact that no only can he deliver, he has delivered. But there is a tipping point where it can become excessive, and then it sounds egomanicacal. I think it is important for Donald to realize this, but still be Donald. Think of that movie clip I posted from the movie Warlock, where the sheriff says you love me now, but you may not love me so much in the morning.

    No, this is not the usual pump and dump. It is the result of the delusional thinking of the elite class that they did not have to clean house at the last collapse. They patched the bubble and went on inflating. And their justification was magical thinking that the economy would reach “escape velocity”, i.e. “liftoff” and they could Ponzi and fulfill their greed lust forever. I am telling you they are functionally insane. That is what happens with an oligarchy.

    You can call the epicenter of the failure “China” but it is just part of the failed system. It is quite well know that if they do more QE they will make the eventual crash even worse. Will they take down the entire system for a little more time as demagogues? You bet your ass they will try.

  44. One thing you can also bet your ass on is that Donald Trump understands what is going on in the global financial world. The timing of his campaign is totally in sync with financial events that have and will unfold and he can ride the wave to the top.

    I cannot wait to hear his stump speeches when Obola starts rolling out the Fed balance sheet with more QE. Those idiots are going to end up needing Trump to protect them from the mob.

    The RINOs tell us that we are making a mistake in supporting Trump

    And that we would be much better off sticking with them

    As they sink the ship.

    Give me a break.

    The only mistake we could possibly make would be to listen to them.

  47. Biden meeting with Warren

    The final plans are being made

    This was most likely the “plan” all along

    I just hope Hillary decides early on the get out and doesn’t have to be humiliated like last time. Yes, she got the most votes but even her camp knew a long time before that she was NOT going to be the nominee

    We are not even into a caucus yet and her numbers are free fallling

  48. Biden will get Obama’s blessing. Wait and see. The fix is in and has been. I reckon that biddy in the white house is the one who sniffed out Hillary’s emails to the reporters. ValJal

  49. Yes. A lot of 2016 feels like 2008 and the sensation is worse the second time around. Only good thing is that the air being sucked out of room now is generated in conjunction with a patriot.
    What I bring here today though, is light reading for a slow afternoon.

  50. Biden will not win.

    Many people just wanted to show how tolerant they were of black people by voting for the current President, twice. OK, you have made your point. Now please vote to help this country “be great again”.

    Hillary is between a rock and a hard place.

    The current people in the WH are afraid that if she wins she will forge ahead with her own policies and agenda, many of which are quite different to theirs.

    She thinks that she needs their “coalition” to win. Therefore, she is treading lightly.

    As my dear departed Dad would say, “She needs to grow a pair”. (Technically she can’t, but you know what I mean.)

    I really want her to win. But if she doesn’t, there is always the Trump card to play.

    By the way, for those people who refer to Trump as a “fool” and a “sideshow”, let’s just be clear, he did not get to be where he is by being a “fool” or a “sideshow”.

    Trump has always said that he would not enter the race unless he can win. He meant it then and he means it now.

    He has really assembled a good team. Watch how they try to infiltrate his team, as they did to Hillary in 2008.

    It is good to be back posting. I have been keeping up with the articles and comments.

    Admin, excellent work as usual.

  51. While Trump assured me that he thinks Bush is “a nice person,” he has told friends in private that his animosity is personal. According to one friend, Trump blames Bush and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim for Univision’s decision in June to cancel a $13.5 million contract with Trump to televise his Miss USA pageant. Five days later, Slim scrapped a deal with Trump to develop shows in Mexico. Trump responded by filing a $500 million lawsuit against Univision. “Trump believes it all goes back to Jeb,” the friend says. “He thinks Jeb and his wife, Columba, are close with Carlos Slim and Univision got pressure from Slim operatives.” In a move that further confirmed Trump’s suspicions, Univision has hired Miguel Estrada, a Washington lawyer with deep Bush ties.

    When — if? — Trump withdraws from the campaign, he will no longer have a ready landing pad on television. (His Apprentice deal with NBC has been canceled, too.) This is a prospect that is likely terrifying for Trump — and should, in turn, be terrifying for Bush. In a recent phone call with a longtime friend who has been acting as an informal adviser, Trump warned: “If I’m going down, then Bush is going down with me. He’s not going to be president of the United States.”

  52. The “Biden meets with Warren” stuff makes me ill. This nonsense has to end, not continue. Fauxcohauntus is another Harvard fraud.

    foxyladi14 – thanks for the welcome back!

    Lu4PUMA – so much of why Trump is succeeding is because of what Obama has done to the country. Trump is also tapping into conservative anger with Republicans, but there is no doubt that he is touching the ‘we love America’ spirit of Reagan Democrats and USA lovers everywhere. People who don’t want the next president to continue to manage the decline of the USA.

    wbboei – I mentioned your name before. You sent me a book once. A book that I believe you wrote. I changed my nickname here just to freshen things up a bit and keep my identity anonymous.

    The goal for the Obama team seems to be what it was in the 2012 election. That is, win by default and tear down your opponents. You (Biden and Warren) don’t have to be great, you simply need to destroy your opposition (Clinton, Trump) and sneak in.

    The GOP needs to wake up. If they think they would have no power under President Trump, they better think about how President Biden would look.

    Team Obama keeps their eye on the ball. Gotta give them that. The Clintons and the GOP better do the same, before we’re left with Biden/Warren in 2016. Or, to be more accurate, Obama 3rd Term as Admin pointed out.

  53. About Shaun King. His “confession” that his mom had an affair with a black man seems laughable. But I don’t know his personal life or his mother’s, so you never know.

    The things people will do to protect their gravy train ways. Geez.

  54. AceOfSpades has two pictures of how CNN covered the attack on the French train. For the international edition the headline is “Actor injured in French train attack.” In the U.S. edition CNN’s headline is “Marines Stop Terror Attack”.

    Big Media is the enemy.

    ‘Give me back my gun,’ train attacker pleads with Americans

    Paris (AFP) – A gunman tackled by young Americans on a train between Amsterdam and Paris pleaded with them to hand back his Kalashnikov after they overpowered him, one of the group said.

    “Everything happened very fast,” Anthony Sadler, a student travelling with friends Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, both members of the US military, told France’s BFMTV.

    “I didn’t realise what was happening until I saw a guard run past. I looked back and saw a guy enter with a Kalashnikov. My friends and I got down and then I said ‘Let’s get him’,” said Skarlatos, a 22-year-old member of the National Guard in Oregon, who has recently returned from service in Afghanistan.

    We didn’t know if the gun wasn’t working or anything like that. Spencer just ran anyway and if anyone had gotten shot, it would have been Spencer and we’re just very lucky that nobody got killed,” he added in quotes shown on the BBC.

    Stone tackled the gunman but was cut with a knife.

    “At that point I showed up and grabbed the gun from him and basically started beating him in the head until he fell unconscious,” said Skarlatos.

    Sadler added that the man — later identified as a 26-year-old of Moroccan origin — “didn’t stand a chance.”

    “As soon as we saw him, we all ran back there. It all happened really fast,” Sadler told BFMTV.

    “He didn’t say anything. He was just telling us to give back his gun. ‘Give me back my gun! Give me back my gun!’ But we just carried on beating him up and immobilised him and that was it.”

    Mobile phone footage from inside the train and shown on several TV stations shows the suspect, a skinny man wearing white trousers and no shirt, flattened on the floor of the train with his hands and feet tied behind his back.

    A Kalashnikov is seen leaning against a seat and blood is visible on a window.

    Sadler told BFMTV he had spoken to Stone, recovering from the knife wound in hospital, adding that he was “doing well”.

    “He can’t believe that all this happened,” said Sadler. “I’m just a college student. I came to see my friends for my first trip to Europe and we stop a terrorist. It’s kind of crazy.”

  56. Still a light of freedom. The land of the free and the home of the brave.

    http://www.france24.com/en/20150822-france-train-attack-briton-chris-norman-thalys?dlvrit=65413

    One of the men who helped foil an attempted mass shooting aboard a Thalys train travelling between Amsterdam and Paris on Friday has said that he thought he “was probably going to die” but that he does not feel like a hero.

    Chris Norman, a 62-year-old British businessman, rushed to help subdue the gunman after he was tackled by three holidaying Americans: student Anthony Sadler, Air Force serviceman Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos, a National Guardsman.

    Speaking to reporters Saturday, Norman recounted the terrifying moment when he realised an armed gunman was on board the train.

    “I saw someone running down the aisle to the front of the train. I stood up to see what was happening and saw a man with what I think was an AK-47,” he said.

    “My first reaction was to sit down and hide. Then I heard an American say ‘go get him’. I decided it was really the only chance was to act as a team and try to take down the assailant.

    “My thought was I’m probably going to die anyway so let’s go. I’d rather die active trying to get him down than simply sit in the corner and be shot.”
    ‘There are no controls on these trains’

    Norman said that after Stone tackled the gunman and Skarlatos took his weapon away from him, he came in to grab his right arm while another passenger, a French off-duty train conductor, held down the left arm.

    “To be honest I don’t why he was unable to get a shot off. I believe his gun jammed, I believe we are all extremely lucky,” he said.

    If you don’t think Trump is pandering to the anti-immigration sentiment, how do you reconcile Trump 2016 with the Trump 2012 version:

    Who cares? Everyone else has been pandered to. Elites, blacks, Hispanics. Why not whites? Why not the middle class of all races? Why do you have a problem with that? Is Cruz not pandering to evangelicals? I don’t begrudge him that. But they want to win, Trump is a Presbyterian and that is close enough. He isn’t a atheist nor a Muslim. Sometimes you have to go with what will win, work, or succeed. Is Trump my first choice. Hell no. Is he good enough. It sure looks like it.

  60. It’s one thing to shape your policy message to appeal to particular groups. It is another thing to reverse every position you’ve ever taken by 180 degrees.

    Well, as Keynes famously said:

    Change the facts, I change my answers.

    What do you do?

    Your answer would be to stand firm on an answer even when it is proven to be wrong.

    Which is a lot like Obama.

    And when a man was sent to death row wrongly

    And DNA information proved he was innocent

    You would say, fry him, because we do not want to pander to his wife and family.

    The reason I am saying this is because that is exactly the attack we are seeing from the RINOs.

    They think with Trump gone they will inherit the presidency.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was the hands-down favorite of the Americans for Prosperity annual summit in Columbus, Ohio, this weekend, if the number and volume of ovations during the speeches of five presidential candidates who addressed the annual convention of tea party activists was the measure.

    At the other end of the spectrum was former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a newcomer to events financed by conservative industrialists Charles and David Koch. Bush was attending his first national conference of Americans for Prosperity and was greeted with respectful but restrained applause by a group that rose essentially out of Republican dissatisfaction with federal spending under his brother, former President George W. Bush.

    Cruz, a tea party favorite since his 2012 election, sparked deafening cheers in the Columbus Convention Center auditorium even before he took the stage, entering to the 1980s power anthem “Eye of the Tiger.” During his speech Saturday, he went on to promise to “repeal every word of Obamacare,” and” rip to shreds this catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.”
    Each of Cruz’s lines was met with applause and cheers from the more than 3,000 activists. Bush, who spoke a day earlier, earned far fewer cheers, and mostly polite applause, from the anti-tax, economic conservative audience from around the country.

    ….

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who can trace his 2010 Senate election to tea party support, received hearty cheers, but less robust than Cruz, while taking a more policy-focused approach than Cruz’s more political speech.

  74. hwc – she was a nude model? Oh, I don’t like that at all. But I’d take that over a first lady who is only proud of her country once her husband cheats his way into the presidency.

    I’m a little concerned about Trump boasting that he can’t remember the last time he said he was sorry for something. I haven’t read about it in context yet, only in passing mention, so maybe it’s explainable. Maybe he thinks it projects an image of him never making mistakes – but that’s not realistic or human. Saying you’re sorry when you’ve made a mistake or hurt someone’s feelings is healthy and polite – not something to avoid. But – as I said, I haven’t read about his declaration in context.

  75. Interesting that in less than 24 hours, Cruz spoke to the two largest factions of non-RINO conservative activists: the evangelical grassroots and the Koch brothers libertarian grassroots, several thousand of each. It’s a safe bet that every single person in both audiences will show up to vote in their Republican primary or caucus.

  76. I saw the interview. He said that he was sure he must have said he sorry for a mistake before, but that he honestly couldn’t remember an instance.

    I don’t think Obama remembers apologizing either. That’s kind of par for the course for narcissists.

    Seems as though your posting Trump’s wife’s photos on this website isn’t too classy of you.

  78. I don’t pretend to be classy like the Donald.

    If he hadn’t wanted the classy pics of his classy mistress to be seen, he wouldn’t have arranged for the classy photo shoot on the classy bear skin rug on his classy jet.

  79. I think the Repubbies demanding Trump not run a third party campaign is going to bite them in the butt. They should have kicked him out early to be Ross Perot Jr. or not mention such a stupid child-like tactic. Now he is running a hostile takeover. And winning! Isn’t Carl Icahn (risk arbitrage specialist) his pal? Why go third party when he can just take it away from them? You don’t flirt with and then taunt the Hungry, Hungry Hippo. He is using the vast cast off middle of the citizenry to take over. I think this was the intent from the beginning. Poor Repub dumbasses.

  80. Melanie is GORGEOUS. This photoshoot was 15 years ago! She was a MODEL, models pose and there is NOTHING wrong with that picture. IF the media wants to start jerking this shit around I’m sure the Donald will tell them where to stick their PRUDISH behaviour. THAT is why there is a REAL war on women!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Women should be able to do anything a man can do without it bearing on THEIR reputations

    Plenty of men do these photoshoots and NOTHING is ever said.l

    I wish HWC would just remove themself from the blog. NOTHING but negative shit from them.

  81. Dot – My first thought too was Bill Clinton. My second…just as prudish as his favorite political candidate BFF.

    Whoever said a few posts ago that HWC has PERSONALLY turned them off to Ted Cruz, here! here!

    Demagogue scolds abound everywhere.

    I know not what course others may take but as for me, take the bloody rino by the nose and kick him in the ass all across Europe the way Patton would.

    A hostile take over which produces an ESOP–as opposed to an uber corrupt system run by a group of self serving grandees who prosper by burying the middle class. To me that seems “progressive” in the better sense of the term, if the goal is to promote the middle class rather than bring them down, as it is now with all these non progressive progressive vermin.

  85. Obama administration officials only began notifying local law enforcement officials of the release of violent criminal illegal immigrants within the last two weeks, according to Arizona law enforcement officials, who say they have for years been kept in the dark about the release of illegal
    immigrants back into local towns.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had been keeping secret its release of illegal immigrants with violent criminal records from local law enforcement for at least two years, denying for a time that this was taking place, law enforcement officials disclosed to the Washington Free Beacon.

    it is pretty obvious panic is setting in. 14 months from now, the national election will take place and his beloved obamas will be history, gone and forgotten. good riddance.

  87. While working at home this morning, I have been listening, with one ear, to the “Sunday Shows” and have come to the conclusion that Jeb! is using his first name because NO ONE REALLY wants another BUSH as president except the elites of both parties (the progressive socialist democrats and the Sickeningly smarmy Republicans). All the talking heads describe them ALL, with the exception of Hillary, by their last names, even Trump. But when it comes to discussing BUSH it’s ALWAYS Jeb!.

    They know how tired this nation is of the political dynasties. And frankly, think about it.

    Can we get NO ONE ELSE as the “top tier” for either party?

    First term senators have proven disastrous. The evangelical wing of the party will never be elected.

    Why can’t the parties SEE this? (rhetorical, I know)

    Hence the popularity of Trump. And I BET he has a LOT of indies and old-school Dems on board too.

    Very true.

    And, plus the fact that he has built things and made things work, rather than just running his mouth.

    I was one of the earliest supporters of Cruz, and his campaign knows that.

    But the way the elites have stacked the cards, and because of the sheer ignorance of the electorate, I just see they using the media to de legitimatize—as evidenced by the way he was ignored and then asked questions about his religious convictions in the first debate. You rely on the American People to see through the big media charade to the truth about him. I no longer do.

    Now granted, if Ted were running for Pope, then questions like that would be relevant. But he is not running for Pope, he is running for president, and the sole purpose of those questions by big media is to marginalize him, undercut his message–which is the same as Donald’s in many respects, and attack his base.

    Once you realize that it becomes easier to see why the elites are scared of Trump above all others. He is the one candidate, the only candidate, who is capable of changing the game. The game is one that favors the elites. And if he is bad for them, then it follows as day follows night that it is good for the country.

  89. Step and fetch it quotes a so called conservative so called think tank run by the economic policy advisor to the failed 2008 campaign of Gang of 8 member John McCain to claim that removing the illegals would be cost prohibitive since it costs as much as the stimulus graft paid to Obama supporters $600 billion and would sink the economy. Why should anyone listen to a man who is so riddled with bias, motive and self interest, much less accept him as a qualified expert on anything except how to lose a campaign, which is the one area in which he obviously does excel. Another RINO who punts on first down.

  90. See how the troll attacks after the reference to MO. It only gets really nasty over Obola. The rest of the time it tries to be a helpful pretender.

  91. Even with all his gotcha questions, he failed. Step and fetch it got nothing out of that interview. He got trumped.

  95. Trump doesn’t waste time. He is very judicious with his precious time AND energy. The telephone interview cuts out having to be in the same city, a car ride, getting made up for TV cameras, hooked up for sound, hanging around, and then sitting down with a weasel. He is so good on the phone with the distinctive voice and cadence of speech. Do any of the others have enough sense to do this? Or the skill-set? Ten minutes on that Steph guy then on to the next thing. What a work horse.

    Anyone upset about Melania’s photos is just insanely jealous of Trump’s good fortune and is clearly not getting any at home.

  97. hwc I could care less that Trump’s wife posed for nude photos. What you fail to realize is that as people get older, they change. What she did then she may not find acceptable now and I think all of us would agree on that. They change about how they feel about any number of issues and yes, I believe Trump could change his positions from year to year.

    Yes, Cruz is highly intelligent and he would make a great Supreme Court Justice because of his knowledge of the constitution. Cruz is also smart enough not to say anything negative about Trump. You need to realize Cruz is not going to be President because he just doesn’t have the support right now but that doesn’t mean he’ll never be President. He’s still young. Stop Cruzin’ because you’re sure turning me off on him.

  98. Kooks will be kooks. Trump has the Kooks ready to go from the frying pan to the fire:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/251712-left-whispers-to-warren-its-not-too-late-to-run

    Left whispers to Warren: It’s not too late to run

    Liberal activists and strategists argue Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) would be beating Hillary Clinton in the polls by now if she had opted to run for president as a champion of Wall Street reform.

    At a time when nervous Democrats are eyeing 72-year-old Vice President Biden and former Vice President Al Gore — who left office 15 years ago — as potential alternatives, some liberals say it’s not too late for Warren to jump in.

    “I think she’d be beating Hillary. That’s my opinion,” said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America, who earlier this year worked on a campaign to draft Warren to run for president.

    “Based on the support Bernie’s got and the way he’s surged in the polls, that shows anything is possible,” he added in reference to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has exceeded expectations by drawing big crowds on the campaign trail.

    Warren is the problem, not the solution. But stupid loser Dimocrats are so scared they are willing to run headfirst onto a Tomahawk.

  99. GOP establishment in full kook mode. Bill Kristol thinks the solution is more and more candidates to run:

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/october-surprise-gop_1016518.html

    Shouldn’t Republicans be open to doing what Democrats are now considering? That is: Welcoming into the race, even drafting into the race if need be, one or two new and potentially superior candidates? After all, if a new candidate or new candidates didn’t take off, the party would be no worse off, and someone from the current field would prevail. If the October surprise candidate caught fire, it would be all the better for the GOP–whether he ultimately prevailed or forced one of the existing candidates to up his game.

    Who could such a mysterious dark horse be? Well, it’s not as if every well-qualified contender is already on the field. Mitch Daniels was probably the most successful Republican governor of recent times, with federal executive experience to boot. Paul Ryan is the intellectual leader of Republicans in the House of Representatives, with national campaign experience. The House also features young but tested leaders like Jim Jordan, Trey Gowdy and Mike Pompeo. There is the leading elected representative of the 9/11 generation who has also been a very impressive freshman senator, Tom Cotton. There could be a saner and sounder version of Trump—another businessman who hasn’t held electoral office. And there are distinguished conservative leaders from outside politics; Justice Samuel Alito and General (ret.) Jack Keane come to mind.

    None of them now plans to run. None of them wants to run. None of them may be required to run for the sake of the country. But isn’t it worth at this point pushing the door a bit ajar?

    Trump has them all rattled.

  100. Trump has them all rattled. Trump had been declared DOA several times already. After Trump’s immigration plan the predictions were that this would surely finish him off. Zombie Trump lives:

    http://news.yahoo.com/trump-widens-lead-over-u-republican-presidential-field-224439794.html#

    Trump widens lead over U.S. Republican presidential field: Reuters poll

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Donald Trump is pulling away from the pack in the race for the party’s U.S. presidential nomination, widening his lead over his closest rivals in the past week, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday.

    Republican voters show no signs they are growing weary of the brash real estate mogul, who has dominated political headlines and the 17-strong Republican presidential field with his tough talk about immigration and insults directed at his political rivals. The candidates are vying to be nominated to represent their party in the November 2016 general election.

    Nearly 32 percent of Republicans surveyed online said they backed Trump, up from 24 percent a week earlier, the opinion poll found. Trump had nearly double the support of his closest competitor, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who got 16 percent. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was third at 8 percent.

    Even when Trump was pitted directly in the poll against just his top two competitors, 44 percent backed him. Bush won about 29 percent of respondents, and Carson 25 percent.

    If Zombie Trump continues to die with such regularity soon he will be at 85% or more support. This poll should also lay to rest the theory that as the field narrows Trump will weaken. Cruz believers in the “Trump will fall then we get his voters” theory hardest hit.

    In Mobile AL, Trump’s mention of the Bible seemed abrupt, but now not so much since this has turned up:

    Donald Trump doesn’t claim to be a regular at Sunday services, but it doesn’t stop him from weighing in on attacks on Christianity, from the war in the Middle East to the “war on Christmas” in America.
    “I go out of my way to use the word ‘Christmas,’” the real estate tycoon assured talk radio host Cliff Sims.
    Sims interviewed Trump Friday on Yellowhammer Radio, prior to the candidate’s massive rally that evening in Mobile, Alabama.
    “There’s an assault on anything having to do with Christianity,” Trump said. “They don’t want to use the word ‘Christmas’ anymore at department stores.”
    The business magnate pointed to litigious actions from the left to intimidate retailers and said he would fight that if elected president.
    “There’s always lawsuits and unfortunately a lot of those lawsuits are won by the other side,” Trump said. “I will assault that. I will go so strongly against so many of the things, when they take away the word ‘Christmas.’”

    He’s picking my priorities. More so than I’ve a right to expect?

  105. The Reuters/Ipsos poll is an online poll and cannot be compared to random sample phone polls. Note that it is not included in the Real Clear Politics average of polls.

  106. What is Trump’s track record on defending the religious liberty of Christians? Does he have any accomplishments? Is this something he has ever talked about before? Or is this a new interest since he started a political campaign?

  107. HoldThemAccountable, it is not just Trump’s ostentatious mentions of the Bible. Trump began his Mobile rally with a mention of Billy Graham. These evangelical touches are aimed right at the Cruz, Huckabee, Santorum, delusions that they will stop Trump with appeals to the evangelical wing of the GOP (Cruz sniped against Trump’s rally in Mobile saying he, Cruz, would rather be with the “rally” of evangelicals he was addressing rather than the groups in Alabama). Trump crushes those loser campaigns with this subtle yet not so subtle tips of his red hat to the evangelical voters of Iowa and the Southern primaries.

    As you pointed out earlier, Trump also attacks hedge fund managers and this targets the Bernie Sanders Birkenstock crowd. Trump also attacks the unions. Trump also attacks the Chamber of Commerce. Trump attacks Bush. Trump attacks Hillary.

    Trump is building a massive coalition from every spectrum of political life in this country.

  108. I’m beginning to think that perhaps we do not have a strong Cruz supporter here after all. Perhaps “the person” is actually trying to turn us against Cruz and is doing a fine job. Anti Trump, turn us against Ted…hum! So are we being manipulated? I can’t seem to square the seeming politics of “our resident” with Ted Cruz’s politics or message. Cruz, himself, is not attacking Trump. Do we have a Jeb troll here? Something does not smell right about this.

  109. So admin, can you point to any history of Trump accomplishment on any issue of importance to evangelical Christians? Or is this a newfound come to Jesus moment for the Donald? Born again Donald, maybe that’s the ticket. We know we are in trouble when he lays hands on some pour schlup in a wheelchair and starts shouting “PRAISE JEEEEZUS”.

    BTW, just for the record, it was Cruz’ campaign manager who said that he would rather be speaking to a rally of 2500 Iowa evangelical leaders committed to a cause.

  110. Practically EVERYONE I’m in contact with, web, stores, post office, FB, Gmail, Twitter is talking ABOUT Donald Trump. His support is MUCH larger than even the pollsters realize. People YEARN for a FIGHTER ….. he is showing he is willing to FIGHT for the people. Is he perfect ……..HELL NO. It’s all I hear now, Trump, Trump, Trump .. his message is REACHING the people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  111. dot48,

    You are right. I have perceived a lot of pent up rage in people. The country has been depressed and overwhelmed by the onslaught of destruction and looting. But that can quickly turn to anger.

    The elite have gone too far. The results on the globalization and central banking system are in. FAIL.

    It is no kind of better social form, but an excuse to loot the middle class, cheat the poor and enrich the elite. It has generated unstable economic systems of debt and a loss of real productivity and standards of living.

    The wheels are grinding to a halt throughout the world. And any of them who have a whit of sense to realize what is happening, would relinquish control to the national interests who can restore some sanity and stability.

    And if they refuse to acknowledge the reality and the consequences of their stinking thinking and greed, they will lose everything they have, with the entire monetary system collapsing. We will all suffer. They better just take their loot and stand down.

    That is why Trump can win. That is why Hillary will not win as Obola 3.0.

    Trump doesn’t waste time. He is very judicious with his precious time AND energy
    —————————
    You identify his valuable and rather unique management techniques which we’ve come to know. TY.
    Far as I can tell, his small number of daily tweets serves as the primary communication mechanism with his supporters.
    There’s not much to his campaign website and yet it supercedes others I’ve used in completeness.
    I signed up for emails, but unless I order something, which generates a few emails from “shop”, there are no emails.

    And when he phones in for his TV interviews, he does not provide video.

  113. Sabato, the University of Virginia political scientist, witnessed Cruz’s prowess firsthand last year when he invited the senator to speak to his Introduction to American Politics class. Cruz spoke in an auditorium in front of 400 students, who tended to be liberal, then took unscreened questions. The pointed, at times combative, questions spanned issues ranging from immigration to foreign policy to gay marriage.

    Cruz answered all of them. At the end, the class gave him a prolonged ovation.

    “He was fearless,” Sabato said. “His performance told me very early on he was not a candidate to be dismissed.”

    I know. I know. I know.

    He is the best.

    But he can’t win.

    Because the system is TOO corrupt to let the best candidate win.

    Under the current system, the priorities are:

    first, the donors

    second, coalition that makes up the party.

    third, sucking hind tit, the constituents.

    This is why McConnell never run the ball up field, never throws a forward pass, but always punts on first down.

    He is doing the bidding of the first two groups, just like all the rest of the RINOS.

    Look across the aisle and what do you see?

    Reid comes out in favor of the Iran deal.

    That is not in the interests of the country, but it helps donors and the syphillitic in the white house.

    And big media is on the side of Obama.

    That is why we do not need the best candidate.

    We need a game changer.

    That is why we must have Trump.

    Personally, I could give a damned if he is a liberal or a conservative.

    Does not matter.

    All that matters is we take down the elites and get reform.

    Looking for the best candidate, worrying about the policy goals is a dead end.

    They never do what they promise anyway.

    It is like a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat that is not there.

    We have got to do what is best for the country.

    And that means the system itself must change.

    Must.

  115. Too much time is spent obsessing over political philosophies and political correctness.

    Too little time is spent on finding solutions and delivering them.

  116. The existential problems facing this nation will NEVER be solved under the current system. The problem is not the constitution however. The problem is too many fucking parasites have attached themselves to the political system and like a giant leech they are sucking the vitality out of this nation. You have a city full of parasites in Washington DC who contribute nothing to the bottom line and waste taxpayer money til hell won’t have it anymore. The whole fucking thing is out of control. I have to sneer at ABC’S lame ass Llamas who gets his panties twisted over the use of the word anchor baby and wants to argue semantics with Trump, while Trump is talking about problems and solution. Llamas. What a piece of shit. I have got to hand it to Donald. He may not suffer such fools gladly, but I, I would not suffer them at all.

  117. CARSON HAS HEATED BORDER DRONE EXCHANGE ON CNN: ‘READ MY LIPS’

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his comments about the possibility of using drones at the Mexican border in a heated exchange with guest host CNN’s Jim Acosta.

    Carson said, “It is quite clear what I said, I was border? I said that drones are excellent for surveillance. You know, along that border. We have miles and miles, and, you know… So drones can help with the surveillance, and no way did I suggest that drones be used to kill people. And I said that to the media at the time. I said you guys, some of you are going to to be saying that Carson wants to use drones to kill people on the border, and how ridiculous, and I hope that at some point we have responsible media to focus on the problem. We have a huge security risk there.”

    When Acosta asked about drone strikes on the cartels Carson said, “That is a total lie. I said that. a drone could be used to destroy is the caves used to hide people.”

    Acosta continued to push causing Carson to say, “Please, please. read my lips and listen carefully to what I am saying. I said that there are caves. There are caves that they utilize, and those caves can be eliminated. There are a number of possibilities, and that could be one of them. I am not talking about killing people. No people with drones.”

  118. Because the system is TOO corrupt to let the best candidate win

    Any candidate who could walk and chew gum at the same time would have easily beaten Romney for the 2012 nomination. Even a Total Loser ™ like Santorum almost took him down. And, Jeb! is a worse candidate with more baggage than Romney.

    People give the so-called Republican “establishment” too much credit. As if the strategists behind the McCain, Romney, and Jeb! campaigns are some kind of political masterminds. Hardly. More like the 3 Stooges.

    If they are so smart, why is Eric Cantor selling insurance (or whatever) back in Richmond?

    It would take a miracle for a go-along-to-get-along candidate to get the Republican nomination in 2016.

    What about the establishment money, you ask? The opposing Koch network money wipes out that advantage. If anything, the anti-Washington candidates who emerge towards the start of the primaries will likely be better funded and have better resources than the “establishment” candidates.

  119. Carson did suggest using drone strikes to blow up caves. He does not have finely honed political instincts when he’s ad-libbing (which is most of the time, outside of his set list of platitudes):

  120. A highly skilled candidate needs to have the discipline to not just blurt something out unless there is a BENEFIT to doing so. There’s no upside to blurting one “One drone, Pow, the cave is gone” when you are talking about missile strikes on US territory. Only downside to blurting out something like that. Serious Constitutional issue.

    A perfect example is Cruz absolutely refusing to talk about gay marriage, pivoting every question to a topic that benefits him — religious liberty.

    If he says he is against gay marriage, then he sets off a liberal media firestorm. If he says he’s for gay marriage, the right wing blogs go “nukular” on his ass.

    No upside. No answer.

    One of my pet peeves is Republican candidates who just blurt shit out. (pardon my french). See Santorum, Rick….

  121. I am not optimistic (surprise) about Hillary’s chances at this time. She had 8 years to get this thing right and her campaign could not have started off worse. We told Hillary not to accept the position of SOS and not to trust that Obama would find her “likeable enough” to support her 2016. There is and remains a bitter hatred between the Clintons and Obamas and for her to think that O and M could be trusted to help her win the nomination was naivety at levels we have not seen since, well since when Kerry fell off his bike and then rushed the sign the deal ensuring Iran would get it’s nukes. I could never be as disappointed as I was in 2008, but in reflecting over the way this has played out, I think I underestimated Obama (he has transformed and forever changed our nation as promised) and overestimated the mystic of the Clintons. I greatly respect Hillary(while disagreeing with some of her positions), but she has not been a good candidate.

He fails to respond the way a reasonable businessman would typically respond. Client keeps asking me when we do X why doesn’t he respond. I tell him you are applying the wrong standard. The standard is not how you or I would respond. He is not constrained by society’s rules. The standard you must apply is that of a thief. Therefore, the question would be how would a thief respond in these circumstances? No sense getting excited about it, once your realize who and what you are dealing with. Same way with Obama. I pretty much knew what would happen if the public was stupid enough to elect him, which obviously they were, not once but twice. And he receives far too much credit. Its the America haters behind him, plus the levers of power that make him what he is. The wizard of oz analogy here is uniquely apt.

  123. Haaaaa what a happy family photo. O’s teeth are clenched, he’s pissed at something. The taller daughter looks pissed, fed up with being lectured to. The other two don’t look happy, either, and MO’s nipple is showing though her clothing.

    I can’t wait until all 4 (5 counting the mom in law) are gone.

    Why did ANYone vote for someone who wanted to FUNDAMENTALLY change our country?????

  124. Hillary got screwed in 2008, but the fundamental problem is that liberal Democrats hated the Clintons.

    This time around, both of the royals, Clinton and Bush, misread the political climate for legacy candidates. Both should have decided not to run. All of the systemic advantages of establishment legacy candidates work against them in this political climate. They are dinosaurs, remnants of a different political era. I feel sorry for both of them because the rejection is going to be bitter.

  125. I think O caught the older daughter on a Trump support webpage lol

    I think much of the Trump media frenzy is being driven by the Democrat operatives and their media partners as a specific strategy to define the Republicans in a way that makes them unelectable in a general election. Some of it is just chasing the shiny object, but there’s a premeditation to it as well. You can see it in the glee of Stephanopoulos.

    He’s the perfect interview. A “Republican” who does nothing but trash other Republicans. He’s even better than David Brooks.

  126. Major feature article in Monday’s Washington Post. It was the front page story on the Kindle edition:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/cruzs-evangelical-outreach-moves-into-high-gear-with-new-church-based-push/2015/08/23/f8cdaaca-4858-11e5-8e7d-9c033e6745d8_story.html

    Sen. Ted Cruz, who has assiduously courted evangelicals throughout his presidential run, will take a lead role in the launch this week of an ambitious 50-state campaign to end taxpayer support for Planned Parenthood — a move that is likely to give the GOP candidate a major primary-season boost in the fierce battle for social-conservative and evangelical voters.

    More than 100,000 pastors received e-mail invitations over the weekend to participate in conference calls with Cruz on Tuesday in which they will learn details of the plan to mobilize churchgoers in every congressional district beginning Aug. 30. The requests were sent on the heels of the Texas Republican’s “Rally for Religious Liberty,” which drew 2,500 people to a Des Moines ballroom Friday.

    They’ve lined up public service announcements on 290 Christian radio stations nationally. A religious non-profit has a $15 million budget for the effort. Leaders are two Iowa operatives who led the recall of Iowa Supreme Court justices and the Texas operative who was the campaign manager for Greg Abbott’s successful gubernatorial run.

    The article has quotes from Planned Parenthood execs attacking Ted Cruz as an extremist crusader out to get them. I suspect that he’ll use those quotes in an ad.

    Mitt Romney will be along any minute now urging him to avoid using rhetoric as a political weapon, and recommending a go-along-to-get-along approach.

  127. I don’t think there is any “media frenzy” if that means media *liking* Trump – they’re as bought and paid for as the politicians are. They’re covering him for the ratings. Not even Fox wants him to win. I have no idea if democratic operatives are involved in the media aspect, but Trump definitely has real support amongst the populace.

    In looking around tonight, a lot of the media is trying to characterize his support as based on his personality, not on substance. They’re trying hard. But he *does* have substance, and they either know that and are trying to change the narrative, or they’re really ignorant. It *could* be the latter, because I’m seeing a lot of pundits “struggling to understand” his appeal. He’s voicing the concerns of perhaps most Americans – and he is someone who gets things done. It’s not so complicated.

  128. I think much of the Trump media frenzy is being driven by the Democrat operatives and their media partners as a specific strategy to define the Republicans in a way that makes them unelectable in a general election.

    If this is true, they’re really batty, I think – really out of touch. He’s attracting enough blacks already that the democrats are getting worried, and in the one state that they polled legal hispanic republicans, he had the most support of all the republican candidates.

    People are fed up with the parties, so the fact that the RNC doesn’t like him only increases his appeal. And plenty of dems and former dems know enough about what the DNC did in 2008 so they’re way ahead of the game in recognizing that what the party wants is very likely not what is best for the people.

  129. He’s attracting enough blacks already that the democrats are getting worried, and in the one state that they polled legal hispanic republicans, he had the most support of all the republican candidates.

    The subsamples on these polls are two small to be even worth looking at. They are polling 300 to 400 Republicans nationally. Hispanic Republicans (“the Hispanics” in Trump-speak) are probably just a handful. The margin of errors in the subgroups are astronomical.

    Any candidate (or pundit) who touts subgroup data as meaningful either doesn’t understand polling or is BSing. The sample sizes are large enough to be a slightly meaningful for big subgroup divisions (like male/female) where the margin of error might be 10%. Not useful for small breakdowns like black vs white, tea party versus evangelical, etc.

  130. It’s so interesting watching the republicans have their own PUMA type movement. I think part of the reason that Hillary was able to be taken out is because she was financially beholden to the party. Trump has the advantage that Hillary didn’t have – his wealth and not needing to depend on the RNC doling out money and access to him.

    Trump has already been talking about how politicians are bought by donors. He has mentioned how media manipulates his sound bites to make it appear he has said something he hasn’t.

    I think he should go all the way. I think he should mention how the media is all owned by corporations and must do their bidding. And he should talk about how the political parties are also owned (Chamber of Commerce, etc). Now that the RNC is being more transparent about not wanting Trump, it gives him an opening.

    I don’t know if he’ll mention 2008 because he won’t want to make people sympathetic to Hillary and he seems to be avoiding direct criticism of Obama, perhaps to not alienate his black supporters. But just bringing up that the RNC is working against him will attract the attention of a lot of dems and former dems.

    But all this (politicians, media, parties) are all the same – monied interests making our decisions instead of the people. There are enough people upset about this on both sides who will appreciate it all being tied together.

    Although – I suppose he knows best, how to handle the RNC – he’s already being smart I think, keeping his leverage to go independent. Perhaps revealing the RNC would be too much at this point.

  131. He wants to be POTUS!!! 😆

    Foxy, I think he used the same person as Obama used for his online birth certificate. I have no idea where that guy was born, but that birth certificate was fake – even I know to close the layers in Illustrator.

    I’ve seen the photo that Bush’s image was supposedly taken from, and he’s standing very close to a woman and his hand is dark from the shade and the angle. But even if it really is from that photo, it’s total incompetence to not notice that and adjust the color!

  132. Could Biden/Warren win?

    ——–
    No.
    ___________________________

    We said that about Obama too

    I guess the best question is “do they have the party approval to cheat”….

  133. If the dems end up nominating Sanders, he will *never* win the general. But going with a self-avowed socialist will definitely tell us that our party is gone, gone, gone…

  134. Tony may be right that Hillary may go more centrist if Biden and Warren get into the race. But I think she would still need to campaign against Obama, against his policies. And she’ll never do that. She’s always been loyal to the party. But now with the advent of Trump, I can see that part of that loyalty is probably the need to obey the party.

    There are so many rich people who could run for president and not be beholden to them. But I think most of them would be doing it for their self-interest – to get the congress to enact laws that would benefit them (all) even more financially.

    I could be wrong, but I think Trump is being truthful that he wants to fix the country. He just may be the right person for the times. I don’t know how, but perhaps he could get the system cleaned up enough that we could get candidates in the future who aren’t rich but can’t be bought – presidential as well as congressional.

    It’s just ridiculous that parties fight the candidates who have the most support from voters.

  135. Stands to reason Obummer will support gaffe prone Biden and they expect the coalition to follow. I don’t think the coalation is there myself. The people who elected Obummer are HURTING and that is why Hillary’s message has fell FLAT. Biden would just be even worse because Hillary while she has not separated herself from the heathen, I think some feel she might once she got the nomination. Biden won’t be able to separate himself PERIOD.

    If Biden gets in a Republican wins .. Trump hopefully but if not Trump whoever is the Republican will win the whole shebang.

    Since I’m independent I can go either way .. I follow my belief system now versus a party.

    Right now I’m leaning Trump

  136. France train shooting: Hollande awards Legion d’honneur
    French president Francois Hollande: “They showed us what can be done”
    Mr Hollande presented Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler and Briton Chris Norman with the Legion d’honneur at the Elysee Palace
    According to HLN the Americans were 3 long-time friends, none Marines, one a student – who had managed to get together for a European holiday.

    Mr Hollande pinned medals on the chests of the four passengers at a ceremony in Paris on Monday morning.
    “We are here to honour four men who, thanks to their bravery, managed to save lives,” he said.
    “In the name of France, I would like to thank you. The whole world admires your bravery. It should be an example to all of us and inspire us. You put your lives at risk in order to defend freedom.”
    Mr Hollande said: “A terrorist decided to commit an attack. He had enough weapons and ammunition to carry out real carnage, and that’s what he would have done if you hadn’t tackled him at a risk to your own lives.
    “You gave us a lesson in courage, in will, and thus in hope.”
    He added: “Faced with the evil called terrorism there is a good, that is humanity. You are the incarnation of that.”

    Perfect opening for Obama to declare martial law, and suspend election.

    In which case, the majority of the sheeple and big media will join in one big chorus of how great thou art.

    You cannot fix stupid.

    And that is what the elites know, and are counting on, as they rob us blind.

    How about a good old fashioned show trial for Soros.

    Problem is most of the witnesses against him either died in the gas chambers or penniless.

  138. hwc: you just don’t see it, do you. All the things you are posting, and I would venture to guess I supported him before you ever did, but I am now battle hardened and realistic enough to know that he has not got a prayer, with the way the system is rigged. I am telling you that now so you do not become disappointed when they take him out. There are only two ways to de louse the system of all the parasites who are killing the host is either through what Donald is doing–which is called changing the game, just like in war, you never let the enemy choose the battlefield so he can fight you from a position of strength or else by crashing the system financially, which may yet happen. Getting back to my comment above, the standard is not what a reasonable president would do in the face of a catastrophe. Rather, the question is what would a depraved sociopath do, and he has already given us the answer to that question, as you may recall: never let a crisis go to waste.

    Too much time is spent obsessing over political philosophies and political correctness.

    Too little time is spent on finding solutions and delivering them.

    wbboei…I watched that…it really makes you wonder whose side is our government and our media on…

    for gods sakes…Carson is talking about destroying caves that illegal cartels are using to bring drugs into our country…drugs that are destroying the inner city and now suburbia with heroin…

    and Acosta is worried about if those per little cartels will be hurt…

    Instead of the media doing its job and exposing these tunnels and caves, etc…going down there and shedding light on this…they want to twist it and hide it and make it look like Carson condones killing illegals trying to come in…

    The media makes it sound like it is ok for all this legal activity to go on and continue…as if it is all fine and dandy…why mess with stopping it…

  141. I just listened to Bill O ticking off a laundry list of items which prove to a fare thee well that the Democrat Party is not only not what it used to be but is stark raving mad.

    Okay Bill-O. I am with you so far.

    Then he says Trump has emerged as a force to be reckoned with, he makes the other Republicans look small and ineffective by comparison, and conservatives (by whom he means RINOs who are about as conservative as Karl Marx) are furious.

    Why are they furious? Because it is supposed to be their turn, Trump is stealing the show—and he is handing the election over to the party of the insane.

    Did you catch the quantum leap in that trail of logic? Did you?? It is the same old song of the establishment, i.e. Trump won’t run, but even if he does run, he will quit, but even if he does not quit he cannot make it to the convention, but even if he makes it to the convention he cannot be nominated and—-

    If he is nominated he can’t win.

    Even though, by his earlier observation the democrat party is clinically insane, floridly delusional, and a failure on ever front, they will defeat Trump.

    And when he does win they will say, we knew all along he would win, and we also know he can’t govern, and the real problem is unlike us, he will not accept donations if there are strings attached.

    Why should anyone in their right mind give the ball to a political party that is the poodle of the Chamber of Commerce? How can they respect leaders like McConnell who punt on first down??

    They don’t get it. They will never get it. But of course it is hard to get a bunch of idiots to understand reality when their livelihood depends on not understanding it.

    In that sense, they are just as delusional as their WWWF opponents on the other side of the aisle. But it is big media that really needs to rot in hell.

    Thank you very much. This is enlightening. It shows in haec verba why we need a game changer–not a skillful game player. If I ever met the jackal who designed that program to snuff out the American voter, I would be seized with an irresistible impulse to strangle him with my bare hands, and bear in mind I am not violent by nature.

  143. found this today:
    “Everyone who is against the Invasion of America and still supports Cruz should read the following.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/08/ted_cruz_vs_donald_trump_whos_stronger_on_immigration.html

    Following are just o few of the articles points:

    It is important to watch Cruz’s language in detail here, as it is clear that out of all the candidates, Cruz is the most careful and deliberate in how he uses words (most likely as a result of years of legal training and debate experience – or leaning Clintonese by listening to the Clintons).

    Cruz simply wants to create a class of individuals with no way to naturalize.

    Nor does “legal status” do anything to solve the American jobs problem or the rampant crime that aliens bring with them, as these people – not 11 million, but 30 to 40 million – will still be here enjoying the fruit of their illegality.

    There will be a “conversation” afterward. Right now he won’t talk about it.

    It seems that Cruz’s compromise position is really just designed to appease conservatives while still keeping the cheap labor proponents at the Chamber of Commerce happy.”
