American Horror Story: The CNBC #GOPDebate – Big Media Is The Enemy – And Why @RealDonaldTrump Won

Update II: RNC to NBC News: Get lost. It’s too late for the RNC and NBC. Trump has taught the candidates how to fight and how to negotiate. No going back.

In the general election both political parties should fight against Big Media. The general election candidates should freeze out Big Media blowhards and host their own debates. Big Media is the enemy!

The Sistas know Big Media is the enemy. Sistas still doing it by themselves for Trump:

Exclusive: GOP campaigns plot revolt against RNC

The Sunday evening meeting comes after an eruption of complaints by the candidates about the debates.

Republican presidential campaigns are planning to gather in Washington, D.C., on Sunday evening to plot how to alter their party’s messy debate process — and how to remove power from the hands of the Republican National Committee.

Not invited to the meeting: Anyone from the RNC, which many candidates have openly criticized in the hours since Wednesday’s CNBC debate in Boulder, Colorado — a chaotic, disorganized affair that was widely panned by political observers. [snip]

It was time, top aides to at least half a dozen of the candidates agreed, to begin discussing among themselves how the next debates should be structured and not leave it up to the RNC and television networks.

The gathering is being organized by advisers to the campaigns of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal and Lindsey Graham, according to multiple sources involved in the planning. Others who are expected to attend, organizers say, are representatives for Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum.

The candidates have the power. They are the star attraction. Yes, they need Big Media attention but in the age of the internet and with all the money they can raise they can be their own Big Media. A Stephen Douglas v Lincoln style no holds, no surrender, take no prisoners extreme gladiatorial debate would attract so many eyeballs the Superbowl and World Series broadcasters would be jealous.

The Donald J. Trump effect. Possibly one of the great nights in American political history. We’ll explain. Donald J. Trump won. We’ll explain. All the candidates except John Kasich and Jeb Bush won. We’ll explain.

So why was last night one of the “great nights in American political history”? Because Big Media is the enemy and last night was the night one large portion of the political establishment woke up. Donald Trump is having a strong effect on his fellow candidates. They’re learning how to fight. Big Media is the enemy. The political candidates have not only woken up but possibly will take action against the Big Media enemy:

After CNBC debacle, Carson camp vows revolt over debates

Boulder, Colo. — After a performance by CNBC moderators that Republicans characterized as both biased and inept, a manager for a top GOP campaign says he will try to organize other campaigns to force the Republican National Committee to make “wholesale change” in the debate process.

In an interview shortly after the debate, Barry Bennett, manager of the Ben Carson campaign, called the session here in Colorado “unfair to everyone” and said the current debate structure should not remain in place. “I think the families need to get together here, because these debates as structured by the RNC are not helping the party,” Bennett said. “There’s not enough time to talk about your plans, there’s no presentation. It’s just a slugfest. All we do is change moderators. And the trendline is horrific. So I think there needs to be wholesale change here.”

Bennett said he will call Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Thursday to propose a unified call for change. “Corey and I talk regularly, so I will talk to him,” Bennett said. “I will call Frank Sadler (Carly Fiorina’s campaign manager), I will call those guys and say listen, we can choose our own network and our own format. We don’t need to be led around like prize steers.”

“I think at this point, if five or six of us get together, who generate the largest portion of the audience, we can force change,” Bennett said.

Finally. If Hillary2016 had any self-awareness, any sense of self-preservation, any common sense whatsoever, Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 would wish the Republican candidates luck and offer her support for the war against Big Media. In 2008 Hillary Clinton was the target of Big Media attacks and Barack Obama had his pillows fluffed. Although now Big Media will shill for Hillary2016 that won’t last long. Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 know Big Media is the enemy and should strategically move in for the kill even when an attack against Big Media is not the immediate problem. It will be though, at some point, and action now would put the animals back in their cages.

The Big Media animals have to be muzzled, or saddled, caged, or put down. Last night was proof of that. It’s not liberal bias entirely to blame here. Yes, the liberal bias of Big Media is a problem. But the Fox News planned-attack-and-structured-as-a-hate-fest-against-Donald-Trump-debate is proof that the problem is Big Media in all its guises. So hooray for the Ben Carson campaign for the open declaration of war against Big Media.

Changing the moderators at the debates is like changing the deck chairs on the Titanic. Change is needed. It’s not the deck chairs that need to be changed it is that the Captain on the bridge has to be killed and thrown overboard. Big Media is the Captain in charge of the political process now. It’s time for the candidates to take charge if the political party leadership continues to bow before the Big Media power.

Last night, with the exception of John Kasich and collaborator JeBush, the candidates on stage were overall magnificent in their response to Big Media. Donald Trump was the first to fight back because he was the first one attacked by comic book Harwood. Donald Trump was also the last because even at the end the Big Media lies did not stop and neither did Trump’s counterattacks.

After Trump batted down comic book guy Harwood, Ted Cruz took up the banner. Chris Christie snacked on the moderators. On the issue that mattered – Big Media – the candidates stood tall and proud.

The Big Media moderators are horrible:

John Harwood in particular distinguished himself by not just asking tough questions, but asking them in the most insulting possible way — interrupting candidates mid-reply, offering his own editorializing, and shouting down candidates attempting to defend themselves. Chris Christie seemed to capture the mood of the candidates and the crowd when — angry at Harwood’s hectoring — he finally said “even in New Jersey what you’re doing is rude.”

Big Media for too long has been allowed to be the dog that wags the tail. Big Media is what comes from under the tail and last night we began to see a much needed battle begin:



Trump started the battle. The other candidates followed.



Trump began the battle. Trump continued the battle with his closing statement and then he took on comic book guy John Harwood.



That’s how Donald J. Trump won. Not only did he teach the other candidates how to fight back. Trump started the battle.

Also, Donald J. Trump won the debate because, let’s face it, at this point Trump has to keep the status quo. Trump is ahead. Wednesday’s debate is what keeps the race frozen and if the race remains frozen with Trump on top, Trump wins.

Jeb Bush? It was a disaster for Bushie. He has the stink of loser all over him now. We now expect JeBush to be the Thanksgiving turkey and that he will be officially out of the race on that national holiday.

Kasich? Kasich was a big loser too.



Kasich thought the moderators did a good job? He’s a fool. The reason Kasich is happy is because he got lots of time to speak. Here is the amount of time and the number of questions for each candidate:

Fiorina 10:32 6
Rubio 10:10 9
Kasich 9:42 6
Trump 9:26 11
Christie 8:31 6
Huckabee 7:39 3
Cruz 7:34 4
Carson 7:2 8
Bush 6:39 6
Paul 6:15 5

The frontrunners (Trump, Carson) got less time than they deserved but that works to their advantage. The Big Media “kill Trump” candidates got the most time which won’t help them anyway no matter how much the GOP establishment tries to pump them up or Big Media uses them to take down Trump. Jeb Bush is officially irrelevant. Big Media pines for Carly Fizzles to kill trump so she gets time. Rubio gets time because he is the replacement Bush for Big Media illegal immigration amnesty activists. John Kasich gets lots of time because he indicated before the debate he was going to take on Trump. Kasich did take on Trump at the debate. It did not go well for John Kasich to take on Trump:



That’s why no one dares take on Trump directly anymore. Trump fights and is teaching the other candidates how to fight. Trump sat on Kasich like an elephant on a grape.

Donald J. Trump is teaching the losers how to fight. Donald Trump is leading the fight. Big Media must be fought and beaten. The winners will be the viewers and the voters.

  1. Want some more Kasich fun? It’s from Roger Stone who has a history of um, toughness. But this is um, something:

    Former (?) Trump Adviser and Republican Hit Man for Hire Roger Stone: You Know, I Fired John Kasich from the 1976 Reagan Campaign For Selling Pot to Other Staffers

    hypocrisy ? I fired John Kasich from the 1976 Reagan Campaign … For selling pot to other field men

  2. Hillary needs to photocopy Trump’s playbook and do everything he is doing on the Democrat side if she hopes to challenge in the general. He is the breath of fresh air that she was in 2008 and then some.

    Hillary 2016?

    I’m not sure that is a joke. She REALLY looks like a villain from Gotham right up there with the Joker, Penguin or E. Nigma…….

    Hillary 2016?

    😮

  4. Seeing on my own how they came together to fight the common enemy was beautiful.
    Now understanding the underpinnings of the evening? Priceless.
    I am incredibly grateful for everything Big Pink.

  5. The lefty establishment spokespeople (aka media) are cocky and full of themselves because they think they are king makers. As Hillary supporters, we saw the media shenanigans up and close in 2008 and we know. But everybody else is seeing it now.

  6. Wonder if ol’ Roger Stone sold some pot to Rubio, as well, along the way? It is interesting how Marco squirms, flips and flops and wiggles his way out of situations with that innocent “who me?” big rock star smile and if that fails tells us once again that his daddy was a bartender and little Rube was probably born in a log cabin right there in Florida.

    Wonder if Trump has “plans” for Rubio. You made one pass at him, Donald, with the water…hope you got bigger plans this go around. He’s gonna be slimy and slippery to take down.

    I’ve listened to Rubio, “how great art” all day on CNN and FOX and I’m disgusted and grouchy!

  7. Admin, assuming a best case scenario where both Hillary and Trump manage to become the official candidates of their respective parties despite opposition from Obama and the establishment, who do you think Big Media will support and will that be a good thing or bad thing for either candidate? My guess is that Trump will continue to eviscerate Big Media and use voters’ antipathy towards Big Media to his advantage if they throw their support to Hillary. If they support Trump instead, then it will become a love fest between Trump and Big Media and Hillary will have a steep, uphill battle ahead of her. IMHO Big Media would be much better off staying neutral in this fight, but then they ARE populated by imbeciles.

  9. Tony Stark you make one big mistaken assumption in your question (Admin, assuming a best case scenario where both Hillary and Trump manage to become the official candidates of their respective parties despite opposition from Obama and the establishment, who do you think Big Media will support and will that be a good thing or bad thing for either candidate? ).

    For Big Media Hillary Clinton will not be the candidate of the Dem Party even if she overcomes Obama and gets the necessary delegates to give the acceptance speech at the convention. For Big Media the candidate they will seek to protect will be Barack Obama. Hillary might get on the ballot but Big Media will only care about Obama. If Hillary supports Obama then Big Media will side with her. If Hillary strays from Obama, Big Media will attack her.

    As to Trump, Big Media will hate him as now but again as with Hillary, that is not the important factor. When it comes to Trump Big Media will hate him but at the same time Big Media sees the profits that Trump brings. Big Media will not be out to destroy Trump as long as they see profit.

    In summary, if Hillary and Trump are the only two candidates on the ballot, the battle will really in Big Media minds be a struggle between love of Obama and love of money. The riptides of that conflict cannot be anticipated by anyone. We suppose that profit will win but the worship of the tin calf is strong with Big Media.

    What we think can be anticipated is that Trump will continue to be shrewd in keeping Big Media divided and tamed and Hillary will find herself tied to Obama and unable to break free.

  10. I love this so re posting for those hat missed it. 😀

    I missed the wink. Did you?
    A commenter from another site pointed it out.
    ________________
    far, my favorite part of the debate was seeing Trump take down Kasich & throw him into a near epileptic seizure with just a few sentences. Then CNBC shifted to a split screen with Kasich flailing & sputtering on one side and Trump standing like a boss all
    cool and collected. Then, with Kasich in full spaz mode, Trump turns his head towards Ben Carson and winks. (15:40 in the video) LMAO! Great! Trump is having fun and kicking butt at the same time.

  11. It looks like The Donald encouraged Carson to take the lead on the fightback against the crap media, awful debate moderators and the RNC. Now after building up the good doctor as the possible number ONE in polling and second coming, the media is running stories about his supplement company and some of his weird statements. Bwahahahaha. Who could see that one coming? Everyone but Dr Carson. Gee, how did that happen Ben? We are trapped in the seventh grade again.

  12. RNC Caved…running scared shitless….

    RNC drops NBC partnership after CNBC debate

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/rnc-drops-nbc-partnership-215388

    The RNC has canceled plans to partner with NBC News for a Feb. 26 debate, citing a “bad faith” performance by CNBC in Wednesday night’s meeting of the candidates.

    “The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith,” Priebus wrote. “We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm of your organization, and we need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

    Priebus argued that CNBC assured the committee that the debate would focus on substantive policy issues like jobs and taxes, but he said the network failed on that count. He also said it failed to guarantee relatively equal speaking time for the candidates.

    “While we are suspending our partnership with NBC News and its properties, we still fully intend to have a debate on that day, and will ensure that National Review remains part of it,” Priebus added.

  13. Well lookey here…..

    Explosive detail: RNC officials leaned on CNBC to give more questions to Jeb Bush at the third GOP debate

    In the middle of the CNBC-hosted GOP debate on Wednesday, RNC chief strategist and spokesman Sean Spicer and chief of staff Katie Walsh approached CNBC officials. According to a source familiar with the encounter, the two had a complaint: Jeb Bush wasn’t getting enough questions.

    The same complaint had come from Bush campaign manager Danny Diaz, though Bush spokesperson Tim Miller said he was not aware of the encounter between the RNC officials and CNBC. The source familiar with the encounter said Spicer and Walsh did not bring up any other candidates.

    Spicer did not respond to a request for comment about the encounter.

  14. The War. JebBush v. Marco Rubio. Gets dirty. They’re calling Rubio another John Edwards:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2015/10/30/nyt-jeb-bush-advisors-have-growing-contempt-for-rubio-want-to-attack/

    As for the swirling mystery of what Team Bush was suggesting in that mysterious powerpoint about looking into Rubio’s background and being “concerned” with what it holds, I don’t think it’s much of a mystery what they were implying, just like it’s no mystery why the sudden go-to Democratic analogy for Rubio is John Edwards, not Barack Obama. A friend who’s tapped into Florida politics and would know the most salacious dirt about the state’s major players told me there’s nothing to the insinuations, but the whispers are a useful way to plant doubt about Rubio. That’s why, I think, Beth Myers felt obliged to speak up on Rubio’s behalf even though she’s a Jeb supporter and her candidate would benefit from this whispering campaign. She probably knows the insinuation is baseless and also knows that, because it’s personal, it could cause Rubio real pain. It’s one thing to hit him for messy finances, it’s another to mess with his family. We’ll see if Team Jeb takes the hint and lays off.

    All out war between JeBBush and Marco Rubio helps Trump.

  15. and he’s officially falling apart….

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/jeb-bush-chief-operating-officer-christine-ciccone-leaves-215395

    Christine Ciccone, the chief operating officer with former Florida governor Jeb Bush’s campaign, is no longer with the organization.

    Bush’s campaign confirmed to POLITICO on Friday that Ciccone left as part of a reorganization announced last week. That restructuring includes salary cuts, a reallocation of resources and a renewed focus on New Hampshire as the former governor seeks to reverse frustrating polling numbers and assure donors that he is not being eclipsed by Sen. Marco Rubio in the Republican primary field.

    Ciccone had a salary of about $12,000 a month or roughly $144,000 a year according to Federal Election Commission filings.

    Ciccone previously worked in President George W. Bush’s administration as a Senate legislative liaison. She was also a lobbyist for the Washington consulting firm Sphere.

  16. De Blasio endorses Hillary.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bill-de-blasio-endorses-hillary-clinton/

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed Hillary Clinton on Friday for president.

    “The candidate who I believe can fundamentally address income inequality effectively, the candidate [that] has the right vision and the right experience and ability to get the job done is Hillary Clinton,” de Blasio said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

    De Blasio, who was Clinton’s campaign manager for her 2000 Senate bid, had been debating for months whether to endorse her.

    “I’ve seen her vision and platform develop over five months. I’m extremely pleased with what she’s put on the table,” said de Blasio, who also served in President Bill Clinton’s administration. President Clinton swore de Blasio into office last year.

    De Blasio also suggested it took him a while because Clinton didn’t immediately roll out her entire campaign platform when she launched in April.

    On Friday, the Clinton campaign circulated a release that said more than 135 U.S. mayors are backing her candidacy. Some of the others include Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Ed Lee of San Francisco.

  17. Update II: RNC to NBC News: Get lost. It’s too late for the RNC and NBC. Trump has taught the candidates how to fight and how to negotiate. No going back.

    In the general election both political parties should fight against Big Media. The general election candidates should freeze out Big Media blowhards and host their own debates. Big Media is the enemy!

    ———————————

  18. WASHINGTON — The White House will try to block the release of a handful of emails between President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, citing longstanding precedent invoked by presidents of both parties to keep presidential communications confidential, officials said Friday.

    The State Department discovered the emails between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton as part of its effort to release the former secretary’s emails, several thousand more of which were scheduled to be made public on Friday. Mr. Obama’s correspondence was forwarded for review to the White House, which has decided against release.

    That decision could intensify the political struggle between Mrs. Clinton, who is running for president, and congressional Republicans, who have pressed for disclosure of her emails as part of an investigation into the administration’s handling of the attacks on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012.

    The contents of the emails between Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama have not been disclosed, but their presumed existence has not been a secret. The White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, acknowledged in March that the two “did have the occasion to email one another” when Mrs. Clinton was serving as the president’s top diplomat.

    White House officials said Friday that their refusal to release the emails is not based on their content, but rather is intended to defend the principle that presidents must be free to receive advice from their advisers without fear that the conversations will be made public during their time in office. They noted the emails between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton will eventually become public many years after the Obama presidency ends, under the terms of federal records laws. (more)

  19. MoonOnPluto, it is fair for JeBBush’s campaign manager to complain to CNBC during the debate that JebBush was not getting questions. But as you note, the RNC? And not just small potatoes RNC members; the top of the RNC weighing in for JeBBush. Confirms what we have written.

    In the middle of the CNBC-hosted GOP debate on Wednesday, RNC chief strategist and spokesman Sean Spicer and chief of staff Katie Walsh approached CNBC officials. According to a source familiar with the encounter, the two had a complaint: Jeb Bush wasn’t getting enough questions.

    CNBC should confirm or deny this story. Did the RNC try to help only JeBBush or all the candidates? If JeBBush is the only one who got the assistance from top RNC officials the entire RNC staff should be fired, including the chairman.

  20. I know a number of Seventh Day Adventists from working in Loma Linda who prefer to be treated with alternative medicines, some of which I consider pure hokum. Dr. Carson’s involvement with a company that markets such stuff is not surprising to me.

  21. What are Glyconutrients?

    Simply stated, the Greek word glyco refers to “sweet.” Hence, a glyconutrient is a biochemical that contains a sugar molecule. The prefix “glyco” can be placed in front of a fat, protein or any molecule and suggests that a sugar is attached. Glycobiology is the study of the sugar portion of these proteins and fats.

    Glycoprotein = Sugar attached to a protein.

    Glycolipid = Sugar attached to a fat.

    Glycoform = Any sugar form.

    Glyconutrients are not vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, herbs, enzymes or homeopathic drugs. They are carbohydrates. Just as there are essential proteins called amino acids and essential fats called fatty acids, glyconutrients are the newly discovered class of necessary carbohydrate nutrients.

    ———–
    I don’t know, but Carson seems to have a very difficult time talking and gathering his thoughts. He is unlike any doctor I have met that I see as very intelligent.

    Don’t get me wrong, he seems like a nice man…but intelligent, I just don’t see it…yet he went to medical school. Red flags for me.

  22. Also, have read that 7 Day Adventists don’t believe in blood transfusions…how does a doctor deal with that????

  23. Our former chairman in our department at Loma Linda is world renowned for his innovations in cataract surgery, yet he would give us all books on why evolution is wrong and creationism is right every Christmas season. Just because you excel in one thing doesn’t make you an authority on everything else. I learned to listen politely to the things they say, just do my job at work and then leave all that behind as soon as I got home.

  24. First things I thought of when I saw the term glyconutrients was candy, pastries, fruits and veggies, all of which are main staples in parties hosted by SDAs, such as our department’s annual Christmas party. I would make a token appearance and then duck out and head to the nearest El Toritos for a good margarita and carne asada.

  25. Tony,

    If I was a guy, I would say you’re a better man than I am…but hence, I am a woman and I would not do well with that Christmas book and having to fake someone trying to push their beliefs on me.

    Kudos to you for your patience, but Ben will not earn my vote.

  26. I bet candy corn is a Glyconutrient………….sugar attached to corn.

    Hehe.

    Facts about candy corn,

    First made in 1880, and was called ‘Chicken Feed’, they were made by hand.

    They can sign a form stating that they wish to go against medical advice unless it involves patients who are children, at which then California’s Child Protective Services will step in and get a court order and maybe take away the child from their parents.

  28. EXCLUSIVE — DONALD TRUMP RIGHTS SHIP ON IMMIGRATION: DEMANDS DISNEY REHIRE WORKERS REPLACED BY CHEAP FOREIGN LABOR, CALLS RUBIO ‘SILICON VALLEY’S PUPPET’

    by STEPHEN K. BANNON & ALEXANDER MARLOW29 Oct 201511,106

    Trump After Debate: ‘I Promote Love’

    Last night during the CNBC primary debate, Donald Trump, who to this point in the campaign had been the Republican candidate most closely aligned with the conservative grassroots on immigration policy, seemed to have altered his message in several significant ways.

    Breitbart News documented some of these changes here.

    Trump, who leads many national 2016 polls, granted Breitbart News an interview on the subject. Full questions and responses below:

    BNN: The media has been filled with stories about companies flying in low-wage H-1B workers to replace American workers in tech jobs. Adding insult to injury, these American workers have been forced to train their replacements. If you were President, would you put a stop to this practice?

    DT: Day one. This is why I got into this race. Because the everyday working person in this country is getting screwed. Lobbyists write the rules to benefit the rich and powerful. They buy off Senators like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79%
    to help them get rich at the expense of working Americans by using H-1B visas–so called “high tech” visas–to replace American workers in all sorts of solid middle class jobs. If I am President, I will not issue any H-1B visas to companies that replace American workers and my Department of Justice will pursue action against them.

    BNN: Hundreds of workers at Disney were forced to train their foreign replacements. But while Florida Senator Nelson rallied to their cause, Senator Rubio did not. While Nelson has called for an investigation, Rubio has not. While Nelson has called to reduce H-1Bs, Rubio has demanded more. Senator Rubio has been the top promoter in Congress for expanding the H-1B program even though millions American tech workers are out of jobs. Rubio’s new bill triples H-1Bs and has zero protections for American workers. Advocates for tech workers said Rubio’s bill would “destroy” the U.S. tech workforce. Rubio’s bill is even endorsed by the CEO of Disney. What do you think of Rubio’s bill?

    DT: It’s a disaster. It would allow any company in America to replace any worker with cheaper foreign labor. It legalizes job theft. It gives companies the legal right to pass over Americans, displace Americans, or directly replace Americans for good-paying middle class jobs. More than 80 percent of these H-1Bs are paid less than the average wage. Senator Rubio works for the lobbyists, not for Americans. That is why he is receiving more money from Silicon Valley than any other candidate in this race. He is their puppet.

    BNN: During the debate, Senator Rubio listed several protections he thought American workers should receive. But the New York Times said Rubio’s bill would does the opposite of what he said, and does not contain a single one of the protections he mentioned. Instead, his bill simply triples the number of H-1B visas given as low-wage substitutes to corporations. Does Rubio have a problem with the truth?

    DT: Yes, Senator Rubio is incapable of telling the truth. He should be disqualified for dishonesty alone.

    BNN: Do you think agree with Senator Rubio that there is a shortage of talented Americans?

    DT: Rubio is dead wrong. America produces the best and brightest in the world. It’s time to stand up for own students–many of whom are racked with terrible, terrible debt and facing a disastrous job market. We are graduating two times more students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) than find jobs in those fields every year. We have a surplus of talented Americans and we need them to get jobs first.

    BNN: What should happen with the Florida workers who have been replaced?

    DT: I am calling TODAY on Disney to hire back every one of the workers they replaced, and I am calling on Rubio to immediately rescind his sponsorship of the I-Squared bill and apologize to every Floridian for endorsing it. I am further calling on Rubio to return the money he has received from Silicon Valley CEOs and to donate the money to a charity helping unemployed Americans whose jobs Rubio has helped to destroy.

  29. Shock and awe for Bush campaign. The money is running out:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/jeb-bush-cash-crunch-215412

    It’s a striking turn for a campaign that had embarked on a “shock and awe” approach to fundraising and then delivered a record-breaking haul of $114 million of hard money and super PAC dollars during the first half of the year. [snip]

    Even while attempting to calm internal jitters, the campaign is trying to be wide-eyed about the possibility that funding could even more dramatically slow down. Bush reported earlier this month that his campaign had raised $13.4 million in the third quarter, and went into October with just $10.3 million on hand – less than three of his rivals, including Sen. Marco Rubio.

    Bush has a high burn rate so that ten million won’t last long. It will be enough to take him to the next debate on November 10 but after that it is over.

    Prices for popular Obamacare health plans rising sharply

    Premiums for some of the most popular insurance plans in the Obamacare exchanges will have double-digit rate hikes in 2016, at a time when both advocates and critics of the law have been voicing concern about health care affordability for American families.

    Rates released by the Obama administration Friday and analyzed by consulting firm Avalere Health found that the lowest cost “silver” plan — the most popular option in the law’s insurance marketplaces — will rise 13 percent, about four times the increase for plans this past year.

  31. Shadow, there’s a hospital here that specializes in “bloodless medicine”. I don’t know what all their techniques are, but I think one is having the patient store some of their own blood ahead of a planned procedure. The hospital is not far from the MX border. Although most Mexicans are Catholic, many are LDS (or is it SDA? Sorry, I get them mixed up). Someone went down there proselytizing I guess lol

  32. An o’dark thirty moment has me thinking: What if HRC, all along, has been doing what she can to out BHO (where the H stands for heinous)? In the Rubio video upthread, questions regarding her role at Benghazi rapidly dragged the raging Rose to revisit Obama 2012 rescuing his legacy.

    2. As all TV outlets yesterday announced US boots in Syria, some were playing an old clip of BHO promising that would never be.A yuge, unexpected departure from their SOP.

    3. While there is an article out there describing the mood on the CNBC plane back to NYC Wednesday night – which was fun to read, I choose this:

    House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Friday that President Obama is untrustworthy on the issue of immigration, a sign the House is not about to take up any kind of comprehensive immigration bill under Ryan’s watch….
    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2575326/

  33. There is no good news anywhere except that we may eventually get some relief from all the bad news if we can get DT elected.

    Another take on Ofuctardcare:

    Haislmaier’s take: “The bottom line: Obamacare has made health insurance costlier and the business of offering it riskier. To survive in that new world, health insurers need to be cautious, or even pessimistic, and hope that their customers can continue to pay escalating premiums. It’s not a pretty picture.”

    It isn’t but what are customers going to do: after all the “Affordable Care Act” is a tax (one which “boosts” GDP every quarter no less) and you must pay it by law; sadly the Supreme Court forgot that when it makes a service mandatory, corporations can charge any price they want.

    And that’s precisely what they are doing.

  34. I have a preference for alternative medicine and am very suspect of our health industry. They put profits before patients. Glyconutrients are no big deal. It is just a family of chemicals that have some medicinal properties. For instance, women have used cranberry juice forever to head off UTI. Well, it is one of the sugars, D-Mannose, in cranberry juice that has been found to protect the bladder from bacteria. You can buy D-mannose at the health food store and put a teaspoon in your favorite drink, if you want to avoid the calories and taste of cranberries. I find that it is highly effective. I do not think Dr. Ben is so far out there.

  35. Lu – I think I read that he said it cured his prostate cancer, not just that it was good for health. I imagine it would be a pretty famous medicine were that true.

  36. lorac,

    D-mannose works by attaching to the sites that bacteria normally attach to on your cells. So it displaces the bacteria and your system can work to kill them and flush them out. It is actually recommended for protection from the dreaded MRSA. There may be some similar benefit related to cancers related to infection, but I have not heard of it as a cure.

  37. When someone makes extraordinary claims about a product that has not been tested properly with a randomized, controlled trial, I just put on my skeptical cap and go, “Riiiiiiigggggghhhhhhttttt!”

  38. I personally have no problems with patients trying alternative medicines and untried therapies as long as they understand that they fully assume the risks involved of going outside of conventional medicine, but I’ve seen too many patients do that, come back months later even worse than when I first saw them and then expect me to fix the irreversible damage that they’ve done to themselves from their disease continuing to progress unchecked.

  39. Look, my mother had cancer so I did look into some of the alternative medicines that are available and they do exist, but their efficacy is poor. If you have an early stage, slow cancer, you could try some of them and maybe be successful. We found my Mothers cancer a stage 3 and she did not survive the treatment (84 years old). Current cancer treatments are horrible. You can get some of the better ones if you have a lot of money, but it is sure not covered under Obamacare.

    Where the health industry gets evil is with the diagnostics for cancer. I personally have a resentment about the Mammograms that raise your risk of getting cancer. They have recently changed recommendations on the age and frequency of recommended testing. Too late for my Mom as she died from esophageal cancer, a tumor right in her mammogram radiation zone. She had cysts so they had been zapping her annually, since the ’70’s when they did not even have limits on radiation levels.

    That puts a whole different light on the free mammograms you can get with your Obamacare. But what is really outrageous is that they have developed a blood test that can detect way early stage cancers of multiple types. Covered? Not. They call it experimental. WTF? It costs around $1,000. My parents had no cancer until they were in their 70’s so I am going to start my testing on my 60th birthday, as a present to myself.

  40. My husband is scrambling to find health coverage now in NY since his Health Republic is going under. Unbelievably, Hillary keeps supporting Ocare. My daughter has lost her job and currently has no healthcare. Only morons in my position would support Hillary at this point.
    Many Americans will be voting for their existence in this next election….for jobs, food, shelter and health care….they will vote for Trump.

  41. Yes, Obola will destroy Hillary if she lets him.

    I agree with admin 100%.

    Hillary must attack the MSM and drop O.

    All 92 million will be voting for Trump.

    That may be enough to offset the 40 million illegals who will be voting for Hillary, because she has promised to do even more for them than Obama did—at the expense of US citizen’s jobs, and safety nets.

  43. That 92 million are the ones of working age who are not working. For them it is a game of survival.

    Unless the aspire to a career with Lehman Brothers they will not be voting for that fracking Kasich.

  44. Kasich reminds me of a possum grinning and eating shit.

    He will go after the social security system with the same morid enthusiasm as Jack The Ripper.

    They should play this music in his honor whenever he enters the room, and gives us his rags to riches bullshit.

    She was for TPP, but now she’s starting to say she is against it.

    I’m just so over this political crap. Candidates should just say what they mean, and mean what they say.

  49. Yeah, Lorac, the video was from 2014, I think. Guess I’ll have to wait n’ see what her position will be during the GE, assuming she gets the nomination.

    “Rubio Snags Hedge Fund Billionaire Bankrolling Anti-Hillary Group” [UPDATED]
    By Peter Daou and Tom Watson

    On July 14, we published The Great American Brainwash: Half a Billion Dollars to Turn the Public against Hillary.

    The piece hit a nerve, getting shared more than 20,000 times. Here’s an excerpt:

    The New York Times looks behind the curtain of the shadowy conservative effort to demolish Hillary Clinton’s favorable public image: “An expensive and sophisticated effort is underway to test and refine the most potent lines of attack against Mrs. Clinton, and, ultimately, to persuade Americans that she does not deserve their votes. Republican groups are eager to begin building a powerful case against the woman they believe will be the Democratic nominee, and to infuse the public consciousness with those messages. The effort to vilify Mrs. Clinton could ultimately cost several hundred million dollars, given the variety and volume of political organizations involved.”

    Crossroads, the group behind this effort, is led by none other than Karl Rove, the strategist who brought us George W. Bush. “Crossroads plans to use a kaleidoscopic approach for its anti-Clinton campaign. In order to target particular voters with tailored messages, the campaign will feature tools including television and radio spots, digital ads on mobile devices, and pre-roll, the commercials that play before videos online.”

    The goal is to indoctrinate the public with anti-Hillary narratives, to insert carefully tested negative memes into the public debate. It is a form of mental manipulation, intended to discourage critical thinking and create predetermined biases in the minds of voters.

    The Wall Street Journal now reveals another nefarious effort to smear Hillary’s character:

    A collection of top GOP operatives, financed by prominent Republican donors, is launching two new groups to take aim at Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

    The groups—Future45, a super PAC, and 45Committee, an issue-advocacy organization—will be bankrolled by some of the biggest donors to Republican candidates and causes, including hedge-fund billionaires Ken Griffin and Paul Singer and the family of TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts. Ron Weiser, a former finance chairman at the Republican National Committee, will serve as chairman of Future45, heading up the group’s fundraising efforts.”

    ObamaCare’s tough road ahead

    The Obama administration on Sunday begins what is expected to be the toughest enrollment period yet for ObamaCare.

    The administration has sought to lower expectations, trimming back its overall enrollment projection while warning that the people who remain uninsured will be the hardest to reach.

    Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Sylvia Mathews Burwell said she and her team are putting affordability at the forefront of the three-month enrollment sprint in an attempt to ease concerns about rising premiums. [snip]

    Still, Burwell has acknowledged, “this open enrollment is going to be tougher than last year.”

    The administration’s goal of having 10 million people enrolled by the end of next year, up from 9.1 million this year, is widely viewed as a low target that would represent a modest expansion of President Obama’s signature domestic program.

    It isn’t very much growth,” said Karen Pollitz, a former HHS official in the Obama administration who is now at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

    While there is uncertainty about how the enrollment period will go, some fear that not enough healthy people will sign up to create a “risk pool” that balances the sick enrollees and prevents premiums from spiking. [snip]

    Around 700,000 people also face the potential loss of their subsidies next year because they did not file a tax return. The administration has sent out notices to try to get people to get their paperwork in order.

  52. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2015/10/31/gop-campaigns-vent-at-rnc-on-eve-of-debate-summit/

    The list of possible reforms to future Republican debates is growing as several campaigns get ready for a Sunday evening meeting in a northern Virginia hotel. And there is one point of agreement among some of them: Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has let them down, as have the television network hosts, and it is time for the candidates to have more say in the process.

    “What’s amazing is how bad the RNC botched this,” said one campaign strategist who planned to attend the meeting. “They’ve got the biggest new TV show of the fall! The networks are making tons of money off of us. We should be telling them what to do. Reince is moving now because feels like he’s going to be dumped by the next nominee, because of how badly he’s botched this.” [snip]

    The campaigns are being asked to send no more than two representatives to the session, which will be facilitated by longtime Republican attorney and fixer Ben Ginsberg. Carson and Donald Trump, two front-runners who got relatively little time at the CNBC debate, kickstarted the idea for a meeting. But some of the most avid interest in reform is coming from campaigns that have felt sidelined. Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), two current officeholders who have been repeatedly relegated to little-viewed “undercard” debates, are sending aides to push their own proposals. According to the expected participants, Graham’s campaign has taken a leading role, with encouragement from candidates who want the senator in prime time.

    But among all campaigns there’s interest in letting the campaigns vet debate rules or even moderators, both factors that became toxic at the CNBC debate.

    “Questions from moderators about someone’s morality are uncalled for and that’s the kind of approach we’d like to see changed,” said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the campaign manager of her father, Mike Huckabee. “There is a real desire from our campaigns and others for more substance. We’re going to talk about possible options to move in that direction, such as bringing in organization heads or non-journalists as moderators to have a debate that is focused on the issues that matter to Republicans.”

    The campaign of former Florida governor Jeb Bush felt shortchanged not just on time, but also on the way the network described him to viewers. According to Republicans close to the Bush operation, his on-screen biography listed his work as a banker, rather than his gubernatorial record. Bush’s advisers have groused with associates that the RNC should have done a better job of alerting the campaigns about the broadcast and letting the candidates shape their own biographical details. [snip]

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), whose jeremiad against the press was seen as a defining moment of the debate, told conservatives at one stop that Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh — conservative radio hosts with varying styles and huge audiences — be called in to moderate. [snip]

    [“]These debates aren’t what they should be. You have the wrong people in charge of the subject matter and topics, setting candidates up for cheap shots.”

    The RNC and the candidates should never have allowed Big Media to decide who will be on stage. The notion that Big Media polls further whittled by Big Media companies would decide who is a legit candidate and who is not was downright dumb. Stupid. The candidates and the RNC have all the power and they surrendered that authority to Big Media. Fortunately Big Media overreached and now there is some attempt to redress the situation.

    Meanwhile, Hillary has agreed to attend a forum hosted by Hillary Hater Rachel Maddow.

  53. Maybe it’s time for the League of Women Voters to take over again.

    I agree there shouldn’t be gotcha questions, but I think maybe it would be better to have more impartial, truth seeking moderators, that may be better than what they’re shooting for, which seems to be dems for dem candidates, and repubs for repub candidates. We don’t need love fests anymore than we need hate fests, we need real information to be informed – hard questions, not gotcha questions, and not lobs. Maybe people like Sharyl Atkisson..

    Hold them…thanks so much for posting that fabulous clip of American Pharoh’s last “winning” race…I LOVE that horse…

    I’ve been running around more lately and have missed alot…that was some race…

    maybe Trump will take off like that…: )

  55. I have it on good authority that the masterful John Harwood is basking in the after glow of a boffo performance in the last debate. His star shown brighter than anyone on stage and his clever wit impressed everyone who watched. He has done big media proud, and is now the toast of Washington. They are erecting a statue to him outside the national press club, and fan letters are pouring in from across the country. And best of all Chuck Todd has praised him for asking tough questions and is calling the decision by Rancid Penis a cheap republican attack on the people’s right to know.

    Across town however we find a slightly different reaction. The elites are holding Harwoods head in the toilet and seeing how many times they can flush it in 60 seconds. They have hired an exorcist to purge his corrupt influence, and a hypnotist to make the nation forget what an embarrassment he is. The other two moderators have been defrocked and sent to Siberia for re education. Other stations are criticizing Harwood, and complaining that he has upset not just audience, but allowed candidates to take power back from the denisons of big media. They are burning him in effigy and showing how inept he is. The only thing you can say in his defense is he is more svelte than the wilderbeat Candy Crowley.

    Yes, Harwood may be smugh, he may be obnoxious, and he may even be stupid, what with his Harvard degree and all. But he is to say the least a game changer, who has singlehandily destroyed big media’s death grip over the political process. It was not unlike the tearing down of Stalin’s statue in Red Square. The end of the era of a tyrannical and oppressive media. Now apologists are trying to say the top people in big media are not to blame, the moderators are the ones who have strayed off the reservation. That is like saying a mob boss should not be responsible for what a made guy does. It is ridiculous. When people tune into big media, they are buying a defective product and a warning label is indicated.

  56. The message is long-awaited in mainstream publishing. I do regret this guy it includes a reference to the Clinton foundation. I thought he made an important contrast; LMK if I’m including more than I should here at Big Pink.

    11/2/15. Rise of outsider candidates reflects uprising against mainstream media
    Armstrong Williams, contributor. Williams is Dr. Ben Carson’s business manager and adviser. He has no affiliation with Carson’s presidential campaign.

    The latest Republican primary debate, hosted by CNBC, provided the clearest evidence yet of how disconnected the mainstream media have become in this country. The debate was full of pointless provocations, irrelevant topics (should the government regulate fantasy football, really?), and loaded “gotcha” interrogation-style questions that bared the media’s consistently liberal bias and their smug disregard for the American voting public.
    Who can remember ever such a vapid media spectacle as this latest debate? The substance-free nitpicking was probably best evidenced in a series of questions posed to candidate Dr. Ben Carson about his relationship with the Mannatech pharmaceutical company. In a revealing double standard, the moderators at CNBC drudged up a ridiculous accusation of impropriety by Carson — yet the mainstream media never seem to question the glaring conflict of interests involving Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and its foreign government funders. While Carson may have had a passing association with Mannatech (he was paid through a speaker’s bureau for some speeches, but he never endorsed its products and has no current financial relationship with the company), Clinton’s foundation solicits and receives tens of millions of dollars in donations from foreign nations hoping to influence U.S. government policy. Why has no debate moderator questioned Clinton about how her financial ties to the Clinton Foundation posed potential ethical conflicts as the Obama administration’s most senior diplomat for U.S. foreign policy?
    Those are the hard, illuminating questions the media should be asking — but because they are so deeply embedded within the liberal establishment, they won’t. The American people are fed up with a media machine that tries to pick their leaders for them by using muckraking, innuendo and selective exposure to try and paint a tawdry picture of their disfavored candidate.

    FOX News well, well deserves a spot on the being taking down situation also.

  59. Seems like the RNC and the Republican media, and never fear there is a big Rep media out there, are using this CNBC debate (and it was ugly) to attack the Dems and whine about how mistreated the poor Republicans have been. I was flipping channels the the other night and heard Megan Kelly going after CNBC and their nasty debate performance and how the Democrat media is so vile. No Democrat has been treated as badly as the Reps. Do you really think they have forgotten the continual attacks on the Clintons for the past 24 years? I almost fell off my chair. Can Megan spell HYPOCRITE!
