Apocalypse Yesterday: Sarah Palin’s Voice, Donald Trump’s Power, Ted Cruz’s Teddy Bear Problem

Update III: Conservative intellectuals to issue manifesto denouncing Trump. In a special all-Trump edition of National Review! It’s over for Trump now gals and guys. This should put Trump over the top even in Hawaii and Massachusetts come November.

Trump couldn’t pay for that much help from National Review if he owned the magazine, and ordered every story to praise him in pages perfumed with scents from Araby.

Is Trump the luckiest man alive ever??? On Saturday Ted Cruz will try to stop the death spiral of his campaign in Iowa with Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck people, Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck will bring more TEDdy bears for Cruz to distribute to illegal immigrants while TEDdy Cruz talks about how tough he is on illegal immigration. Zonkers Bonkers!

Speaking of illegal immigration, how much fun do you think Donald J. Trump will have with the up to now secret arrest of Marco “Tony Montoya” Rubio? It’s a Jeb Bush opposition research dump on Rubio but Trump will get all the laughs from this one (remember that last minute story about George W. Bush’s arrest record).

Luckiest man alive. Maybe Barack Obama will give a speech devoted to Trump hate too and get Trump over 90% of the vote.

———————————–

Update II: Shock Iowa poll from CNN: Trump leads Cruz by 11, Sanders leads Hillary by eight. Ted Cruz supporters who ignored our analysis have found an answer to the facts on the ground as they face reality: Maybe Trump really is quietly running Cruz off the field and he’s gearing up to run the table in all 50 states. Not enough horse tranquilizers in the world.. Horse tranquilizers! Thorazine can be found in Iowa in ample amounts.

Thorazine for the Canadian backers as reality bites. What about Hillary supporters? For the Brooklyn brains of Hillary2016 who still think the Obama third term strategy is smart – we suggest they get off the LSD.

——————————————-

Update: Confirmation of what we wrote below comes from the first real good Iowa poll (not these) since the debates and the Trump v. Cruz and Hillary v. Sanders wars broke out. Holy Guacamole!!!:

Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in Iowa as Sen. Bernie Sanders takes control of the Democratic race in the critical first-in-the-nation voting state, according to a new CNN/ORC poll released Thursday.

Trump leads Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who is in second place in the GOP race, among likely Republican caucus-goers, 37% to 26%. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, is in third at 14%, the only other Republican in double digits. Ben Carson failed to register half of Rubio’s support and is in fourth place at 6%.

Sanders, meanwhile, has opened up an eight-point lead over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, leading her in Iowa 51% to 43% among likely Democratic presidential caucus-goers.

The full impact of the Sarah Palin effect has yet to be felt in Iowa. This is the best case scenario for Donald J. Trump we have written about before anyone else: Trump wins Iowa then runs the table to become the early nominee. Hillary loses Iowa which leads to a death march against Sanders and the multiplying problems of more candidates and that yet-to-be-revealed candidate, behind the tapestries with the knife, which will be revealed at the convention – to stop Hillary. Get used to saying “President Trump”.

———————————————–

Get over yourselves. What you feel doesn’t matter. What you think doesn’t matter. Unless you’re in Iowa your thoughts and feelings don’t matter. The ball is now in Iowa. The roulette wheel is spinning. Your thoughts and feelings will not move that little ball and get it to land in your favored slot. Get over yourselves. And don’t speak too soonFor the wheel’s still in spin – And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’ – For the loser now will be later to win – For the times they are a-changin’.

After the “he won’t run” then “he’s not serious” then “he has no support” then “he can’t beat the others” then “he can’t stay on top” then “he will fade” then “the establishment candidates can’t beat him but another outsider will” we’re now at “Cruz will be different than Walker and Carson ’cause he will win” and right back to the risible “it’s over for Trump”. Donald Trump was supposed to once again lose in Iowa. Then the Apocalypse arrived.

Donald Trump was supposed to lose Iowa to Scott Walker, then Trump was to lose to Ben Carson, then Trump was to lose to Ted Cruz. Donald Trump had other plans. What Donald Trump feels and says matters because he can influence where that little ball lands. That’s all yesterday was about. Sarah Palin was about winning Iowa. Donald Trump’s Cheshire cat smile was about winning Iowa. Everything that happened yesterday was about winning Iowa. It’s all about Iowa right now. Whether we or you or the woman on the moon feel good about Iowa as the lead state or think that is bad, does not matter. It is.

After Iowa it will all be about New Hampshire. At that point all your feelings and thoughts won’t matter – unless you vote in New Hampshire. Then the feelings and thoughts of Iowa won’t matter at all. Right now, Iowa matters. If you live in Iowa your feelings matter, your thoughts matter. Everyone else: get over yourselves – your thoughts and feelings don’t matter. Capiche?

That does not mean we cannot try to understand what is happening. Unless you are a candidate for president or a voter in Iowa, or someone hired by one of the candidates or volunteering for one of the candidates, all you can do is try to understand what is happening in Iowa. Feelings and thoughts are not worth one bit of damn if you are not in Iowa.

The Sarah Palin Apocalypse of yesterday was all about Iowa. If Sarah Palin helps Donald Trump win Iowa then, as we wrote yesterday and even earlier, it’s over – but not for Trump. If Trump wins Iowa Trump wins the nomination. If Hillary on the same night loses Iowa then we think Trump is elected president months from now.

Let’s understand what is happening. There’s really not much to add to what we have written before. But every time we have to explain. Let’s start with Ted Cruz supporters who are livid with Sarah Palin. Let’s make this as clear as possible once again: Ted Cruz has no chance of being the GOP nominee. It’s either Trump or Jeb!

The GOP establishment might try to squeeze Rubio in if Jeb continues his death march to oblivion but it is either Trump or Jeb. All Ted Cruz can accomplish is join the list of all the other “surge” candidates (recall when we wrote that Carly Fiorina would surge from the low single digits to the high single digits then back to the low single digits?) propped up by the GOP establishment to take down Trump – but Cruz will not be the GOP nominee. Get that through your thick skulls. Ted Cruz will never ever be the GOP nominee. It’s either Trump or a schlub chosen by the GOP establishment.

As we wrote in August of last year:

Is there anything dumber than a Ted Cruz supporter? Well, maybe a Carly Fiorina supporter. Maybe a Ben Carson supporter. [snip]

Some of the dummies will find what we say provocative. But take it from those of us who attended the 2008 Rules and Bylaws Committee of the Democratic National Committee. [snip]

Hey, dummies, why do we call you dummies, especially you Ted Cruz dummies? We call you dummies because you think that once Trump goes away your candidate will rise and maybe have a chance to win. That’s so stupid. Your candidates don’t have a chance. The fix is in. We think Ted Cruz supporters are especially stupid because they think that the establishment figure most hated by the establishment due to his personality and obnoxiousness (which we do think should be admired by the way) won’t be swept away with ease by the very forces that have tried with all their raw power and vitriol to destroy Donald Trump.

We have to mock any and all supporters of candidates who say “oh, I like so-and-so,” “oh, so-and-so is so inspirational,” “so-and-so candidate is really blah-blah-blah and I really think that he/she has a strong chance to win this thing,” or the dumbest of all “I just want a candidate that can win and so-and-so is it!” Hardy-hardy-har-har – LOL – ROTFL – Ha!

The fix is in dummies. Only one candidate can win now other than Jeb Bush. Like it or not it is Trump or Bush.

Since we wrote that article last year, as “it’s over for Trump” was still the mantra of Big Media, Donald J. Trump has pretty much smashed Jeb Bush. But the ancien régime will plot and not go quietly. Jeb Bush is a moldy peach completely rotted after weeks in the heat but he is still the establishment’s moldy peach. The moment Donald Trump is removed, the moldy peach is the meal. Eat dogs!

Ted Cruz thinks he is a shiny apple who could be nice to Trump, then at the last moment push Trump aside. Do you laugh or cry at such foolishness?

Ted Cruz has had a really rough day yesterday. Add to a lawsuit filed in Texas by a Democrat lawyer questioning Cruz’s natural born status, an avalanche of bad news. We side with Cruz on ethanol subsidies but the savage attack by the very popular Iowa governor made headlines in the only state that matters and is more important than what we think and feel.

Sarah Palin, like the force science terms “gravity”, pulled it all together yesterday. The assault of bad news against Ted Cruz reached crisis levels. The news coverage “medium is the message” made a lie of the claim that Sarah Palin did not matter. If Sarah Palin’s endorsement did not matter, why did it matter so much on every communications media on earth?

We’ll take a moment to comment on Sarah Palin’s physical voice – which is what many settled on as a consolation prize to mock Palin. Yeah, Sarah Palin’s voice is a high pitched nightmare. So is Hillary Clinton’s “screech”. Guess what? Women have voices that hit high registers and the louder they get the more painful it is at times. But we hear “why don’t they take voice lessons to lower the screech?” Then these same people will say they want “real” “authentic” voices, not manufactured voices. But, then voice lessons, right? If you don’t like the candidates put through the “makeover” process and turned into manufactured overly processed messes, then don’t ask for voice lessons. It’s a problem for women. It’s a long term problem for women. At the same time screechy voices are annoying and… well, we don’t know what to say about all this. It’s unfair and we should recognize our unfairness. We do know that Sarah Palin’s powerful political voice is a problem for Ted Cruz:

Say what you will about her, but Sarah Palin always did have great political timing.

Palin’s specialty is upending the news cycle, or “kinda stirring things up a little,” as she put it in Iowa on Tuesday. [snip]

Some will say Palin won’t help Trump much. She has, after all, faded from the public eye in recent years as her stunts grew less political and more profitable. [snip]

But the naysayers misunderestimate Palin’s unique appeal—and that of her chosen heir, Trump. In a normal election year, Donald Trump’s three marriages and his casinos would discount him amongst the social conservative, largely evangelical Iowa Republican primary electorate. But this is a base that isn’t looking for a peacetime nominee. They’re looking for a wartime nominee and the enemy is Washington.

If battle with the establishment is your goal, there is no greater ally than Palin, who has made a very lucrative career out of being the bane of the Grand Old Party’s existence. Just ask Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who, Trump noted in the news release announcing Palin’s endorsement, once said that he “would not be in the United States Senate were it not for Gov. Sarah Palin. … She can pick winners.

Cruz is vying for the anti-establishment mantle and in recent weeks overtook Trump in Iowa polls. Palin’s endorsement comes the same day that Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, once an establishment man who got elected, in part, with Palin’s help, said he hopes Cruz is defeated in Iowa.

Palin’s endorsement could help reassure conservatives wavering over Trump’s somewhat liberal record and, as Cruz put it in the last debate, his “New York values.” And, as Palin herself noted, she brings even more heightened attention, media coverage and notoriety to Trump’s campaign, which has hardly been lacking for any of those things. Her campaign events with Trump will vastly overshadow those of any other candidate for the rest of the week.

“Mr. Trump, you’re right. Look back in the press box. Heads are spinning. Media heads are spinning,” Palin said with glee, circling her right index finger around. “This is going to be so much fun.”

Fun is probably not the word much of the Republican Party, including rival Cruz, might use.

Today, as Sarah Palin continued her march through Iowa alongside Donald J. Trump, more bad news for Ted Cruz:

FEC complaint filed against Ted Cruz for undisclosed loans in 2012 Senate campaign

The left-leaning group Texans for Public Justice filed a complaint Tuesday alleging that Ted Cruz purposely hid more than $1 million in loans from major banks during his 2012 Senate campaign.

The allegations mirror details uncovered last week by The New York Times, which found that Cruz had failed to report loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank to the Federal Election Commission, as required under federal campaign law.

It is a big deal,” said Craig McDonald of Texans for Public Justice. “He left the voters of Texas in the dark as to who was underwriting this campaign.”

Cruz is railing against the big banks and Wall Street, and yet he hid the fact that CitiBank and Goldman were actually providing him the money to run the campaign,” he said.

To all the attacks against Ted Cruz the response from the Ted Cruz campaign has just been announced. It is a catastrophic response. It is a catastrophic response for Ted Cruz. This will not help Ted Cruz, but rather will implode his campaign in Iowa and everywhere else:

Glenn Beck to appear with Cruz as he swats at Trump

Conservative media personality Glenn Beck will make appearances with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Saturday in Iowa, ABC News reported late Tuesday.

The news came shortly after Beck took to Facebook on Tuesday to attack Cruz’s rival Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee who endorsed Trump the same day.

Why is this Beck move a bad move for Cruz? Well there is that business about Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin’s Downs Syndrome child. Cruz better have a lawyer’s briefcase full of why attacks on Sarah Palin’s kid is not a problem. Where Glenn Beck will hurt Ted Cruz the most is what we will call “the TEDdy bear problem”:

Ted Cruz Joins Glenn Beck to Deliver Soccer Balls, Teddy Bears and Food To Illegal Immigrant Kids

Just when you think things can’t get any crazier with the illegal alien invasion of the United States through our porous southern border, it does. The hullabaloo occurring because of “children” crossing the border, which the mainstream media touts as the majority of crossers in opposition to actual fact, is producing controversy between upholding the law and breaking the law. Glenn Beck is taking soccer balls and teddy bears along with meals and clothing to the Texas border to “help” these children using his own money and money he solicited from his followers. The surprise in all of this is that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now joining with Beck at the border on Saturday to “feed, clothe, and provide toys for illegal immigrant children.

Isn’t that special? Teddy bears from Ted. Ted Cruz’s record on amnesty for illegal immigrants is the focus of several attack ads already. Get ready for the TEDdy bear ads.

TEDdy bear attack ads against TEDdy bear Cruz? Will that work? What we think or feel about illegal immigration or amnesty does not matter right now. What do the people of Iowa think? The pro-amnesty Des Moines Register reported yesterday:

Iowa proves hard place for immigration reform message

The Republican hopefuls who have spent time at the top of the Iowa polls this cycle — Trump, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson — have made their opposition to so-called amnesty for undocumented immigrants a key part of their platform. Republican candidates who support allowing some sort of path to legal status have struggled to get traction. [snip]

As the presidential campaigns got underway, the candidates argued whether U.S.-born children of undocumented immigrants are bona fide U.S. citizens, while deploying the derogatory term “anchor baby.” The term accuses women of crossing the border illegally to give birth, thereby conferring citizenship on the baby and providing advantage under U.S. law to other family members seeking legal residency.

Conservative favorites like Cruz are running on anti-amnesty and pro-border-security platforms.

“People are fed up with empty talk,” Cruz told the Arizona Republic. “We have a crisis on the border. The federal government is not doing its job.”

There’s a crisis on the border and Ted Cruz came armed with TEDdy Bears.

Glenn Beck in Iowa will revive Ted’s Teddy Bear problem. We suppose Beck and Cruz will plead they are “bleeding hearts” like the liberals they mock. But we imagine Donald Trump will have something to say and do with this ammunition. Think Trump will use this ammunition? You betcha!

Since he announced, Donald J. Trump has been savaged by the left, the right, the center, and Big Media. Donald Trump has been attacked by just about everyone and he has not only survived, Trump has thrived. Think anyone else on the GOP side could withstand what Trump has withstood?

Donald Trump has shown the political establishments and Big Media the power of his message. Ted Cruz has a teddy bear.

    Madness!!!

    http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/01/hillary-clinton-debate-iowa-sanders

    With these aggregated setbacks growing more worrisome, Clinton has seized on a new strategy: clinging as hard as possible to the Obama brand, and casting Sanders as someone who would undo his legacy. It’s a tactic she deployed several times during Sunday’s debate, claiming that Sanders’s health-care plan would give Republicans an opening to repeal Obamacare, and arguing that his anti–Wall Street rhetoric was at odds with Obama’s attempts to regulate the big banks. On Wednesday, she published a laudatory essay titled “What President Obama’s Legacy Means to Me,” in which she swore to “defend President Obama’s accomplishments and build upon them.” Clinton, who previously attempted to distance herself from her former boss, added that his policies “shouldn’t be dismissed or taken lightly,” doubling down on her implicit swipe at Sanders.

    Where are the damned Iowa polls? Between the late week debate and the holiday weekend we understand why it is better to wait until we can get some good solid polls from Iowa. But we want to see some poll results to see what’s going on in Iowa. Then we will have to wait until post Sarah Palin polls come out.

    Here’s the latest Florida poll:

    http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz-florida-politics/fla-poll-trump-48-cruz-16-rubio-11-bush-10/2261994

    Florida’s Republican primary would be a Donald Trump blowout if held today, according to a Jan. 15-18 poll by Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative. Trump leads with a whopping 47.6 percent support among likely Republicans, followed by 16.3 percent for Ted Cruz, 11.1 percent for Marco Rubio, 9.5 percent for Jeb Bush, and 3.3 percent for Ben Carson, who in November had 14.5 percent support in the same poll. Since that poll, Cruz gained six points and Rubio lost seven.

    “At this point, Donald Trump is simply crushing the opposition in the Florida Republican primary,” said Kevin Wagner, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at FAU and a research fellow of the Initiative. “Not only has he increased his lead, Mr. Trump’s favorability ratings among Republicans are now ahead of his competitors by a substantial margin.”

    In Florida Trump has more than the top 4 candidates below him, combined.

    In New Hampshire:

    CNN/WMUR New Hampshire poll:
    Trump — 34
    Cruz — 14
    Bush — 10
    Rubio — 10
    Christie — 6
    Kasich — 6
    Paul — 6
    Fiorina — 4
    Carson — 3
    Huckabee — 1

    Trump has as much support as the next 3 combined.

    But where are the darn Iowa polls?

  • lorac

    Based on the article in admin’s first comment, IMO Hillary apparently doesn’t plan on backtracking during the general. She’s been getting so specific about everything she LOVESLOVESLOVES about Obama’s tenure,that it would be awfully tough. She can’t frame any distancing from him by saying, “well, I meant that he meant well and he tried hard”. She’s just really specific lately….

  • Shadowfax

    I’m still reading Admin’s post but this was too much to pass up…

    “Why is this Beck move a bad move for Cruz?”

    OMG, not as if I like Cruz in the first place…oh Demon look in his eyes, but effin’ G. Beck??? Cruz must have dug to the bottom of the barrel when he picked out this crackpot to endorse him.

    Not, “What was he thinking?”, but, “Was he thinking?”

    Sarah is authentic, like her or not…but Glenn Beck has more than a few screws loose.

  • lorac

    It is a catastrophic response for Ted Cruz….. (snip)
    Glenn Beck to appear with Cruz as he swats at Trump

    Oh, wow. Good catch. I didn’t even remember the teddy bear event anymore….

  • wbboei

    Fantastic analysis Admin.

    As with any contact sport, it is a game of momentum.

    And momentum starts in Iowa.

    And that is why the establishment will attempt to prop up Cruz

    Because he has no chance in the subsequent states

    But they hope it will deny momentum to Trump.

    At this moment, the primary and general election boils down to one state.

    By historical anomaly, Iowa is most important because it is first.

    It is there that momentum is either ignited or quashed ab initio.

  • wbboei

    Trump needs to have that kind of momentum behind him when he gets to the convention.

    As it builds, some of the elites may decide if you cannot beat him join him.

    Others like the consulting class will never relent.

    They would rather destroy the village to save it.

    Which is their special kind of madness.

  • wbboei

    Want to see more desperation?

    Try this one hot off the presses from Brooklyn:

    The Intelligence Committee IG who issued the email report was colluding with republicans.

    Only one problem–or five of them:

    The IG has been an FBI agent and assistant US attorney.

    He was nominated to the position by Obama in August 2011.

    He was introduced to the Senate committee by Dianne Feinstein.

    He received unanimous approval to the position.

    At some point, the explanation fails to pass the red face test.

    Except perhaps in Brooklyn.

    When Buckley said he would rather be ruled by the first 200 names in the Brooklyn phone directory

    Than by the entire faculty of Harvard Law School, I took his point.

    But I cannot believe he was referring to those running the Hillary campaign.

  • Southern Born

    It is not what ANY politician says during a political campaign. They all…everyone of them…spew BS. And some of them have op research to smear and smear in a National Enquirer way. Perhaps the wise thing is to look at what a politician has actually DONE and stood up for in the past. Voters were in love with BO’s speeches and believed his attacks on the “racist” Bill and Hillary. Few actually looked at what Obama had actually DONE in Illinois and how he had cheated and nastily won his elections there. Few cared about his past when he promised HOPE and CHANGE and fundamentally to change America. Did he ever keep that campaign promise but look how it turned out.

    So maybe the wise thing is to look to what a candidate has DONE not be blinded by what he or she promises and to ignore the smears coming out of any candidate’s mouth right now.

    Maybe Hillary is doing this in order to deliberately sink the Democratic Party after what they did to her in 2008.🤔🤓

  • wbboei

    Yes. The polls are significant. But the caucus strategy is where the game is. And its there in Iowa that Sarah helps Donald and hurts Cruz for the reason momaer noted in the prior thread. It is war and war is a game of addition on the one hand and subtraction on the other. A point that Hitler and Obama never managed to understand which is why our foreign policy is in shambles.

    ‘They come back wondering if there is that respect for what their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military have given so sacrificially to this country, and that starts at the top,’ Palin said.”

    I don’t have a problem with Palin. I respect that she started in the PTA, then to mayor, then to governor. If Trump were considering her for VP, I’d be upset, but I’m absolutely certain that’s not his plan. Not that she couldn’t do something in his administration if they both wanted that, but the gains she brings to the primary wouldn’t translate in the general, and some crossovers would run right back to whomever was the dem candidate. Plus, her strength is that she speaks truth to power, but he already does that. He might want a different skill in his VP..

    And, I understand PTSD, and I agree with Palin that Obama doesn’t care about the military, but that quote I posted above suggests the soldiers come back and wonder if the people AROUND them value their service (IMO that’s what it suggests, anyway). And that feels stretched to me. It’s not Vietnam. (But my complaint doesn’t have anything to do with her helping Trump, just a personal reaction.)

    I haven’t followed Palin, but I remember she had a little gaggle of kids. Of the older ones, Track seemed to be the hope for the family (the daughter had that long-lasting soap opera). So it’s kind of sad.

    Oy… the first paragraph above is from the article… I guess I forgot to close my italics!

    Tony Stark, any theory that explains what Hillary2016 and Hillary are doing we’re game to hear. Frankly, if the aim is to “sink the Democratic Party” or as some on the right suggest “to avoid indictment by playing up to Obama so he will block an indictment” we could understand. We’re not so holy or so pure that we’re adverse to doing something for political profit – as long as there is political profit not loss.

    The problem that we have with Hillary and Hillary2016 is that we understand what passes for a strategy very very well. We hear it all the time. We’ve written about that strategy for years. Yeah, we get it, the bet is that Hillary needs the Obamaroids to win the nomination and the election. We think that is stupid. We understand the strategy but the strategy is stupid. This election as we have written for years is about “real change, not false hope”.

    Long ago we wrote that anyone or anything that ran against Hillary would get a huge percentage of the primary vote. That’s because the party is gone kook left at the highest levels and they hate Hillary. They hate her. They will never support her. They will do everything to undermine and destroy her.

    Hillary needed to presume before she announced that without her the party would lose in 2016. Armed with that presumption Hillary then had to say “give me what I want or screw you kooks”. Hillary could have added “without me the Obama legacy is one that will be wiped out the first day the next president issues an executive order nullifying all Obama’s executive orders. Plus without me you will lose even more senate and house seats. So here’s the deal kooks: Do what I tell you to do or go to Hell. Take that message to Barack and slap Michelle with it while you’re at it. Wait until the next president starts an investigation of Barack and Michelle and Valerie and the rest and you will regret every second of every day I did not get your full support and get elected.” That’s basically what Trump did. Trump said, “be fair to me or I walk and sink the GOP.”

    The lame Hillary and Hillary2016 strategy presumes that the more she blows herself up in the general by declaring herself the Obama third term the more it will help her defeat Sanders. That is so stupid because the Sanders people hate ObamaCare and view as weak everything Obama has done. Hugging flea ridden Obama only gives Hillary fleas not additional bark or bite.

    The more Hillary becomes the Obama third term the more she sinks. Are we the only ones that read polls? Hillary is sinking because her strategy sucks.

  • lorac

    With such a vast arsenal of weapons to attack the problem, from the pen to the cellphone to the executive order to taking over the Saudi oil fields to to drawing red lines to just showing up at the opening bell, grinning at the cameras for a white house staged photo shoot to be broadcast across the world and memorialized in the history books with that bouncy run to the platform and that big broad smile, and more gesticulating than anyone should every have to listen to—he forgoes all this. Yes, he sits there like a frozen fresco while the rest of the world goes by as if to say be patient this will all shake out in the long term. And stop worrying about me and Michelle while your life’s earnings are going up in smoke. You can sleep as soundly as I did on the night of the Benghazi attacks knowing that whatever happens me and Michelle will be just fine.

    wbboei, you definitely have a way with words!

    Byron York, not a Trump fan, assesses Palin in Iowa:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2580965

    Byron York: What Palin does for Trump, and to Cruz

    Tuesday night in Ames was a prime example of Trump’s timing and showmanship. Bringing Sarah Palin to Iowa grabbed all eyes in the Republican caucus race. And it seriously undercut the notion, growing in some political circles, that GOP rival Ted Cruz has nailed down the support of all of Iowa’s conservatives. [snip]

    But Trump was happy to have Palin for more reasons than her ability to entertain a crowd. Even though she is much diminished from her heyday a few years ago, Palin still has influence among some conservatives. Trump now has that on his side, and just as important, Cruz doesn’t.

    At the rally I talked with Jamie Johnson, a veteran Iowa politico who supported Rick Santorum in 2012 and Rick Perry earlier in this race, but is now unaffiliated. Johnson saw the Palin move entirely in terms of persuading voters at the margins of the Trump vs. Cruz contest.

    “I think the Palin endorsement is important for all of the Tea Partiers who were deciding which of the two they were going to vote for,” Johnson said.

    Does Palin still have clout in Iowa?

    “To Tea Partiers, she does.”

    “How big a part of the electorate is that?”

    “Probably 15 to 20 percent of the people who caucus. I’d say 15 to 20 percent would identify themselves as Tea Partiers more than anything else, such as born-again evangelicals.”

    “And you would expect that some of them are caught on the fence now between Trump and Cruz?”

    “I know for a fact that they are,” Johnson replied. “I’ve talked to several people in the last two months who have been on the fence between Trump and Cruz. So if they’re on the fence, this might be just enough to push them over.”

    Indeed, at Trump and Cruz events in the last two weeks, I have met plenty of people who were for Trump, with Cruz as their second choice, or were for Cruz, with Trump as their second choice. For some of them, Palin’s seal of approval might make some difference. Before she spoke, I asked several people at the Ames rally whether Palin had worn out her welcome; none thought she had.

    “It’s a valuable endorsement because people still view her as an anti-establishment outsider who they can also relate to,” said Craig Robinson, a former Iowa state GOP political director who founded the Iowa Republican blog. “And if there is any strategy to the Trump campaign, it is to dominate the media coverage of the race, and Palin’s endorsement will certainly help with that.”

    That’s an understatement. Palin’s appearance with Trump immediately captured nearly all the media’s attention. In coming days, it will inspire impassioned debate, make talking heads explode, and cause fevered speculation across cable TV.

    In Iowa, though, some in the Cruz camp were almost relieved to see Palin get so much attention, because it directed coverage away from a potentially far more serious problem for Cruz. Just a few hours before Palin appeared Tuesday, Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad, a hugely influential figure in the state, publicly said he wants Cruz to lose in the caucuses. Branstad, a supporter of ethanol, made the statement at a renewable fuels conference; Cruz, of course, opposes the federal ethanol mandate. “[Cruz] hasn’t supported renewable fuels, and I think it would be a big mistake for Iowa to support him,” Branstad said.

    That hurts.

    In the early hours of Tuesday, before the Branstad and Palin developments, the Cruz camp felt things were going pretty well. They believed Cruz had gotten the upper hand in his feud with Trump over constitutional eligibility, “New York values,” and other topics. CruzWorld pointed to talk radio hosts criticizing Trump as proof that Cruz had come out ahead. “Mark Levin just erupted at [Trump], and Rush did as well,” a Cruz aide said Tuesday morning. “When they say ‘cut the crap,’ it has a pretty powerful effect.” (In fact, Limbaugh’s objection to Trump was a bit more nuanced than that, but Cruz still counted it as a victory.)

    In a morning conversation, one Cruz aide expressed confidence that Cruz could counter any attack Trump threw at him. Cruz can fight as long as he needs to, the aide suggested: “It’s going to stop when Trump wants it to stop.”

    That good feeling disappeared quickly as Tuesday went on. A few hours later, Iowans were talking about Branstad, and then everybody was talking about Palin.

    And on Palin, one final, indirect effect of her endorsement is that the Cruz camp is left to wonder what Trump has coming up next. “He has to have another couple of tricks up his sleeve before the caucuses,” said one Cruz supporter over drinks late Tuesday. The problem is that Team Cruz doesn’t know what those tricks are. They’ll find out when Trump wants them to.

    The very definition of “schlonged”.

    Hillary needed to presume before she announced that without her the party would lose in 2016. Armed with that presumption Hillary then had to say “give me what I want or screw you kooks”. Hillary could have added “without me the Obama legacy is one that will be wiped out the first day the next president issues an executive order nullifying all Obama’s executive orders. Plus without me you will lose even more senate and house seats. So here’s the deal kooks: Do what I tell you to do or go to Hell. Take that message to Barack and slap Michelle with it while you’re at it. Wait until the next president starts an investigation of Barack and Michelle and Valerie and the rest and you will regret every second of every day I did not get your full support and get elected.”


    Oh how we all wished this is what Hillary had said and none.

    That the one thing we can all agree on.

    This document is not authorized by Governor Palin or SarahPac. All of these accomplishments have been compiled from information found at the following sites:State of Alaska Archive:

    Governor
    Sarah Palin’s
    Accomplishments
    Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship

    Governor Palin’s cornerstone accomplishment is
    AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor
    Palin’s governance
    , the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and helps put us on the path to energy independence.

    Governor Palin’s administration
    opened up drilling for oil and natural gas at Pt. Thompson forthe first time in decades.

    Governor Palin created the
    Alaska’s Petroleum Integrity
    Office to oversee all aspects of energy development and a Climate Change Sub cabinet to comprehensively and honestly evaluate climate change.
    Fiscal Conservatism

    Governor Palin reduced earmark requests for the state of Alaska by 80% during her administration, requesting only earmarks that would benefit the country as a whole.

    Governor Palin reduced spending in her budget for Fiscal Year 2010 by more than
    one billion dollars from the previous governor’s Fiscal Year2007 budget, a 9.5% real reduction in spending.Her FY2010 budget was $10.57 billion compared to Governor Murkowski’s FY2007 budget of nearly
    $11.7 billion. At the same time, she fulfilled her campaign promise to forward fund education,allowing districts greater flexibility and predictability in their planning.

    She vetoed half a billion dollars in spending, thelargest veto in state history.

    Governor Palin opposed
    much of the “stimulus”,
    wanting only to accept 55% of the money allocated to Alaska, specifically only dollars dedicated to infrastructure

    projects. Although the Alaskan legislature ultimately overturned her veto, she stood firm on her commitment to help Alaska to become more self-sufficient while not adding to the skyrocketing national debt.

    Governor Palin invested $5 billion in state savings.

    Governor Palin reformed Alaska’s
    public employee retirement system to make it solvent.
    Walking the Walk on Fiscal Responsibility

    Governor Palin sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor. She stated it was an unnecessary financial burden on the state, and it was impractical and unable to land on many of the state’s landing strips.

    To cut costs that would beincurred by using a personaldriver, the governor drove herself from Wasilla to her office inAnchorage.

    She also dismissed the governor’s personal chef at the Executive Mansion.

    Governor Palin accepted less state per diem forherself and her family than her predecessors even though she had a larger family.
    “Will we chart our own course, or will Washington engineer it for us?

    Hillary should have read The Art of the Deal :)

    I just thought of something. Way back in the very beginning, Obama was the first of my group of 3 (Hillary, Edwards, and Messiah) that I ruled out. (Oddly enough, it was because he was referring too much to religion to me. He did stop doing that, but when he did resume, after being (s)elected, it was all about Muslims lol)

    So I had already disqualified him when he said he wanted to “fundamentally change the country”. If I hadn’t dumped him already, that would have done it. And I really don’t know why so many let that statement go. Yes, people run on change – but not *fundamental* change. That of course means you want to change the very basics of our country, and the basics include our constitution and our basic values, etc, so that should never be acceptable, IMO.

    Anyway, since Trump is basically running against Obama, he should say something like, “Hillary says she’s Obama’s twin, and Obama wanted to basically change the fundamental basis of our country. Well, I’m here to restore our fundamental elements, to make America herself again, recognizable again, and therefore great again!”

    Although, hopefully Trump would present what I just said with better structure and simplicity, so it could zing lol

    Admin’s comment above: Since he announced, Donald J. Trump has been savaged by the left, the right, the center, and Big Media. Donald Trump has been attacked by just about everyone and he has not only survived, Trump has thrived. Think anyone else on the GOP side could withstand what Trump has withstood?

    Donald Trump has shown the political establishments and Big Media the power of his message.

    If you want to play catch-up I can think of no better way to spend the next hour than listening to this guy who was the consummate insider to six presidents, an historian with no equal, and someone who was working with Donald but no longer is. In this video he gives you the sense of how the corrupt game is played out, and at times he has been in the middle of it. The players we see on stage today are archtypes who have been there for 50 years, and the dirty deals are exposed like nowhere else. Put differently he knows where the bodies are buried. Forget the intro and proceed to the 6 minute mark.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/01/jeb-bush-donald-trump-218043

    Bush: Trump attacks me because he’s scared of me

    Jeb Bush thinks Donald Trump continues to attack him because Trump is afraid of him.

    Bush knocked the Republican poll leader as just an entertainer who isn’t going to be commander in chief, adding that Trump fears his rise. “The reason why he attacks me is he’s scared of me,” Bush told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday. “He’s insecure. He doesn’t believe that he can take me on, and while I’m doing worse than him in the polls, the simple fact is, why would he spend his time tearing down someone who’s so low compared to him? This is because we’re moving up, and I believe that he believes that we’re the real challenge for his winning the nomination.” [snip]

    Trump blasted Bush at his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier Wednesday, touting a Florida poll that had “Bush down in the toilet.” Trump said Bush, who released a futuristic anti-Trump ad on Wednesday showing Clinton’s inauguration after Trump concedes the 2016 election, has spent more than $79 million in ads.

    “The first thing he should do is he should get rid of the Jeb stuff. Get rid of all of the nonsense that he’s going through with, ‘I can fix it.’ You know, his new slogan, ‘I can fix it,’” Trump said. “He can’t fix anything. He’s a low-energy person. Low-energy people don’t get things fixed.”

    Jeb Bush is a barrel of laughs.

    Heidi Cruz got a couple of “payday” loans from Goldman Saks and Citi. She was some kind of an employee of GK, got a loan or two from her employer and their friend, hubby won a Senate seat, a couple of months later she is regional VP for the Southwest for GS and GS could pay themselves back for a illegal political loan via her pay check. Voila! Payday loan. I am surprised that GS did such a obvious and childlike stunt. And the Cruz’s. What are those Ivy League educations for if not class, sophistication, and Gordian Knot schemes. I’m disappointed in Lloyd Blankfein. Did those crazy kids in Houston think this one up all by themselves? I doubt it. And who got pushed aside in promotions and bonuses told Trump? The kissing up and kicking down of Ted and Heidi Cruz will make a great book.

    Yes, SP did exceptional things as Gov… thusly her abrupt stepping down W’s all the more sad. Yes, there were knifes out for her, yes there would be high lawyers bills, but she would have been able to easily obtained the money with speech thereafter.
    It is my sad understanding that many of those laws have been overturned by the vultures that took over since her departure.
    She is a great catch for Trump however, he is a shrewd shrewd man..

    The lame Hillary and Hillary2016 strategy presumes that the more she blows herself up in the general by declaring herself the Obama third term the more it will help her defeat Sanders. That is so stupid because the Sanders people hate ObamaCare and view as weak everything Obama has done. Hugging flea ridden Obama only gives Hillary fleas not additional bark or bite.

    This is exactly Einstein’s definition of insanity. At some point, one can only wonder if Hillary is delusional, self-destructive or just out to burn the Democratic Party house down in revenge for 2008 like the Joker in the movie The Dark Knight.

    Roger Stone was Chairman of the Trump Exploratory Committee. His resume is the gold standard when it comes to Washington insiders, lobbyists, and, yes, Republican hit man, although he left the party because of the corruption of the Bush family, and he has a book out this month documenting their crony capitalism and suppression of corruption of democracy since the days of Prescott Bush. If you took the time, the videos I posted peel away the layers of the onion on how Washington works, and who the real behind the scenes players are, and the Bush family is in the thick of it. It is no cooincidence that Trump has tripled his personal security detail in the past six months, or that death threats continue to come in. This background information confirms Admin’s analysis of the campaign as explained here.

    Stone has been a friend of Trump for thirty years and among all the people he has known personally including four past presidents, he claims that Donald is, as he puts it, the real deal. Why? Because he left the world of luxury and success to enter the world of politics which is a dirty dirty business. He is brilliant, he cannot be bought and he cannot be intimidated, although the establishment of both parties have certainly tried, while also attempting to push Jeb, heir to, and representative of a corrupt political/business/lobbyist/banking/war making cartel. Trump sees that the Bush cartel and its counterpart are taking this nation down the tubes, and the sole purpose of Donald’s candidacy is to save the nation. It is quite a moving endorsement, from a credible source, which I believe to be true.

    When Bernie calls himself a democratic socialist, Stone says that is like saying you are a meat eating vegetarian. He believe Bernie to be a zealot and an ideologue.

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/look-out-stocks-might-fall-a-lot-further-2016-01-21

    Hard to believe, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average DIA, +0.74% could fall by another 1,000 to 5,000 points and still not be “cheap” compared with long-term stock-valuation measures.

    That’s the stark conclusion from an analysis comparing current stock prices to underlying measures such as per-share revenue, earnings and corporate net worth.

    And it suggests that even if we are now overdue for a short-term bounce or rally of some kind, buying heavily into the latest sell-off isn’t the kind of one-way bet that value investors crave.

    Stocks are certainly much cheaper than they were a few weeks ago. After the worst start to a new year in Wall Street history, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down about 10% since Jan. 1. Small-company stocks are now deep in a bear market after falling more than 20% from last spring’s highs.

    But cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean cheap.

    Even after the sell-off, U.S. stocks are valued at around 1.4 times annual per-share revenue. FactSet says the average since 2001, when it began tracking the data, is 1.3 times revenue. So the Dow could fall another 7%, or over 1,000 points, and still be no lower than its modern-day average.

    And the picture looks even worse when you also add in those companies’ soaring debts. According to the Federal Reserve, nonfinancial corporations have increased their total debts since 2007 from $6.3 trillion to over $8 trillion. As FactSet says, total shares plus total debts — the so-called “enterprise value” — of U.S. public companies are now 2.4 times annual per-share revenue, compared with an average of 2.1 times since 2001.

    Data from the U.S. Federal Reserve, meanwhile, say U.S. nonfinancial corporate stocks are now valued at about 90% of the replacement cost of company assets, a metric known as “Tobin’s Q.” But the historic average, going back a century, is in the region of 60% of replacement costs. By this measure, stocks could fall by another third, taking the Dow all the way down toward 10,000. (On Wednesday it closed at 15,767.) Similar calculations could be reached by comparing share prices to average per-share earnings, a measure known as the cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings ratio, commonly known as CAPE, after Yale finance professor Robert Shiller, who made it famous.

    Even when you compare stocks to the earnings of the past 12 months, it’s hard to say they are in any kind of bargain territory.

    At best, depending on how you measure things, you could say they’re no longer wildly expensive.

    Common Core:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/21/exclusive-former-pearson-exec-reveals-anti-american-agenda-in-common-core-on-constitution-guns-christianity/

    A former marketing executive for textbook publishing giant Pearson Education reveals the anti-American agenda behind Common Core and the Advanced Placement U.S. History framework in the third video of a series produced by Project Veritas and focused on the corporate cronyism behind the education reform known as Common Core.

    Kim Koerber, a former Pearson executive who now works as a sales consultant for National Geographic – another Gates Foundation-funded Common Core publisher – tells the Project Veritas undercover journalist that “conservative voters are afraid of everything,” and proceeds to say why Common Core is important in her view.

    She explains that those behind Common Core and the new AP U.S. History framework have attempted to minimize the Constitution and remove Christianity from the core concepts, while they also stress the importance of teaching about Islam: [snip]

    “The dead white guys did not create this country,” Koerber says. “They [presumably conservatives] want to talk about those dead white guys.”

    Koerber continues that Common Core is necessary because “it needs to be come cohesion between the states.” She expresses frustration, however, that “Texas keeps screwing it up over and over again.”

    “People who say they want to teach the Constitution, only want to teach the part of the Constitution that they like,” she tells the journalist, who then asks her about the Second Amendment.

    “But yet they don’t want to teach all of it,” she replies. “Damn the Second Amendment.”

    The Vermont senator is now seen as ‘electable’ by a majority of Americans, while Hillary Clinton’s lead among likely Democratic voters has narrowed to 9 points

    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has seen a rise in his Iowa and New Hampshire poll numbers – and with the Iowa caucuses less than two weeks away, his national support is growing, too. In the latest Economist/YouGov Poll, he trails national frontrunner Hillary Clinton by just nine points among likely Democratic primary voters – the closest margin yet.

In effect this terrible ad concedes the nomination to Trump and sets Jeb! up for the charge that a Jeb! nomination would have worst results. Jeb! continues to provide the laughs this year.

    Breaking news: Jeb Bush dumps his eyeglasses. Most positive development for Bush since the campaign began.

    It only took 3,000 focus groups to focus on the fact that Jeb looks like a total dope with the glasses on. Glasses didn’t work for Rick Perry. Then a $450,000 expenditure on polls, we surmise, and Jeb decides to side with the group of advisers who suggested he ditch the glasses. It was a brave move for Bush as a plurality of his advisers suggested he continue to wear glasses. Another group suggested he wear contacts with different colors to get the Metrosexual vote. Several other groups hired fashion experts to redesign Jeb’s glasses. Other advisers formed a task force on what color the new glasses should be. Other advisers conducted a study on what previous winning candidates wore as glasses. The extended Bush clan was consulted and outreach conducted in Europe to see what the political consensus on glasses is world-wide.

    Bush made a courageous decision.

    Update: Confirmation of what we wrote below comes from the first real good Iowa poll (not these) since the debates and the Trump v. Cruz and Hillary v. Sanders wars broke out. Holy Guacamole!!!:

    Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in Iowa as Sen. Bernie Sanders takes control of the Democratic race in the critical first-in-the-nation voting state, according to a new CNN/ORC poll released Thursday.

    Trump leads Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who is in second place in the GOP race, among likely Republican caucus-goers, 37% to 26%. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, is in third at 14%, the only other Republican in double digits. Ben Carson failed to register half of Rubio’s support and is in fourth place at 6%.

    Sanders, meanwhile, has opened up an eight-point lead over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, leading her in Iowa 51% to 43% among likely Democratic presidential caucus-goers.

    The full impact of the Sarah Palin effect has yet to be felt in Iowa. This is the best case scenario for Donald J. Trump we have written about before anyone else: Trump wins Iowa then runs the table to become the early nominee. Hillary loses Iowa which leads to a death march against Sanders and the multiplying problems of more candidates and that yet-to-be-revealed candidate, behind the tapestries with the knife, which will be revealed at the convention – to stop Hillary. Get used to saying “President Trump”.

    As a former Democrat and one who lived through the vitriol thrown at Hillary Clinton supporters back in the day, I am now getting copied on many posts and articles from still-liberal friends, the gist of which (in both the articles and the comment sections) is that Trump supporters must be idiots, have no education, are afraid, are low-information, need an authority figure in their otherwise pathetic lives, are racist, are budding Nazi’s/fascists, etc. These are their fellow citizens being shamed with the worst name-calling I have ever seen. It is so elitist, what makes them so smart, it’s like the schoolyard bullies are out in force! Obama fostered this as well beginning with his “bitter clingers” language and tacitly approving these types of verbal attacks on opponents in 2008, but you know, this is branding a large percentage of the country with the most awful labels. So uncivilized, such hate-speech! We will see what happens at the caucuses because that is where some of that verbal bullying came into play in ’08 and made people afraid to vote for their candidate of choice. It’s really shameful that his supporters, fellow American citizens, are being so disrespected.

    Update II: Shock Iowa poll from CNN: Trump leads Cruz by 11, Sanders leads Hillary by eight. Ted Cruz supporters who ignored our analysis have found an answer to the facts on the ground as they face reality: Maybe Trump really is quietly running Cruz off the field and he’s gearing up to run the table in all 50 states. Not enough horse tranquilizers in the world.. Horse tranquilizers! Thorazine can be found in Iowa in ample amounts.

    Thorazine for the Canadian backers as reality bites. What about Hillary supporters? For the Brooklyn brains of Hillary2016 who still think the Obama third term strategy is smart – we suggest they get off the LSD.

    Yup. Its a masterpiece. It so good, filled with so many Norman Rockwell images, that its easy to forget the man at the center has more in common with Lincoln Rockwell. Good old Bernie. Maybe not a national socialist but by his own admission a democratic socialist which is like saying he is a meat eating vegetarian. He is, what they used to call a commie. But there is no evidence that he is in the hip pocket of Wall Street, and to the left wing base that his all they care about.

    Ay Caramba! Marco Rubio has an arrest record? That Jeb Bush opposition research team is the only part of his campaign that works. The dirt they dig up to pass on to Big Media is astounding:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/rubios-summer-of-90-an-arrest-then-newfound-purpose/2016/01/21/3582a72e-c04d-11e5-bcda-62a36b394160_story.html

    Marco Rubio’s first year of college at a small school in Missouri ended badly. His grades were awful. A neck injury dashed any hopes of achieving greatness on the football field. He was hurting for money.

    He resolved to go back to Florida and get his life on a path to success. Instead the 18-year-old added to his troubles after returning to Miami for summer break: He was arrested one night in May 1990 for being in a crime-plagued public park after closing time, according to police records and an interview with a friend who was cited with Rubio that night.

    The previously unreported misdemeanor, which eventually was dismissed, tugged Rubio into the criminal-justice system just one year after the conviction of his brother-in-law in a major drug-trafficking case had exacted a devastating toll on his family.

    Cue up the Tony Montoya “Scarface” videos Jeb.

    Update III: Conservative intellectuals to issue manifesto denouncing Trump. In a special all-Trump edition of National Review! It’s over for Trump now gals and guys. This should put Trump over the top even in Hawaii and Massachusetts come November.

    Trump couldn’t pay for that much help from National Review if he owned the magazine, and ordered every story to praise him in pages perfumed with scents from Araby.

    Is Trump the luckiest man alive ever??? On Saturday Ted Cruz will try to stop the death spiral of his campaign in Iowa with Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck people, Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck will bring more TEDdy bears for Cruz to distribute to illegal immigrants while TEDdy Cruz talks about how tough he is on illegal immigration. Zonkers Bonkers!

    Speaking of illegal immigration, how much fun do you think Donald J. Trump will have with the up to now secret arrest of Marco “Tony Montoya” Rubio? It’s a Jeb Bush opposition research dump on Rubio but Trump will get all the laughs from this one (remember that last minute story about George W. Bush’s arrest record).

    Luckiest man alive. Maybe Barack Obama will give a speech devoted to Trump hate too and get Trump over 90% of the vote.

    By the way, that Rubio story is loaded with insinuations as only the vile Washington Post exudes. Check out some of the innuendo masquerading as background information:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/rubios-summer-of-90-an-arrest-then-newfound-purpose/2016/01/21/3582a72e-c04d-11e5-bcda-62a36b394160_story.html

    Rubio, who has no history of criminal convictions, has never discussed his arrest publicly, and he did not mention it in his 2012 memoir, “An American Son.”

    Rubio declined an interview request. Todd Harris, presidential campaign strategist for the senator from Florida, dismissed the episode as a minor infraction with no relevance today.

    “When he was 18 years old, he violated a municipal code for drinking beer in a park after hours,” Harris said. “He was never taken into custody, never hired a lawyer and never appeared in court. Why The Washington Post thinks that is a story is beyond me.

    There’s no indication that Rubio was involved in any illegal activity other than drinking beer and being in a public park after closing. The police incident report, which does not mention alcohol, states that drug activity was “not applicable.” [snip]

    But his academic record sank to new lows. He has said his grades were “abysmal,” so bad that he would not have been eligible to play sports in the spring. [snip]

    He had not wanted to enroll in a school in Miami because he worried he “would be too distracted there,” he wrote in his memoir, without detailing what might have occupied his attention. Even so, he spent the summer in his home town before classes started at Santa Fe.

    In Miami, Rubio, always short of cash, took a job as a messenger for a courier service, driving a 1983 Pontiac Firebird that his father had bought for him, according to his memoir. Frequently, he wrote, he ferried documents from law firms in the Brickell neighborhood to offices downtown, just to the north.

    It was not far from there that Rubio’s arrest occurred. At 9:37 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, 1990 — five days before Rubio’s 19th birthday and an hour and a half after sunset — a police officer was dispatched to Alice C. Wainwright Park, a shaded stretch of grass along Brickell Avenue where the neighborhoods of Brickell and Coconut Grove meet, according to a Miami Police Department incident report. The park, studded with palms and gumbo limbo trees, offered a stunning vista of Biscayne Bay, a “millionaire’s view for the masses,” according to one newspaper review.

    The bayside park, named for the first woman to serve on the Miami City Commission, had been established in 1965 at the site of a dilapidated estate. It is flanked on three sides by ornate mansions and pricey condominiums. Madonna and Sylvester Stallone would own homes there in the early 1990s.

    Despite the high-priced real estate nearby, the park had become a notorious locale in the late 1980s and early ’90s, a haven for drug dealers, prostitutes and gang members.

    A local homeowners association’s newsletter documented the complaints of neighbors: “Gang warfare, gunfire, prostitution (straight and gay), drug dealing and muggings.” Police were attuned to the complaints because of a pattern of problems at the park, said Delrish Moss, a Miami police public information officer and a 32-year veteran of the force.

    “It was very dark and had lots of trees,” he said. “People went out there to smoke illegal substances, have sex, drink.”

    A full account of what led to Rubio’s arrest and the dismissal of the charge are not included in available public records. The court file has been destroyed, according to Miami-Dade County court clerk’s records.

    According to the Miami Police Department incident report, a police officer arrived at the park at 9:47 pm, 10 minutes after being dispatched. The report notes that Rubio and two other teenagers were inside the park after hours. In a recent interview, Angel Barrios — one of the men arrested with Rubio — said they were sitting in a car when they were approached by an officer.

    “We were there just hanging out,” said Barrios, who now owns several coin-operated laundries in the Miami area.

    Barrios said he could not recall why they went to the park that night.

    “We never even used to go to that area,” he said. “That might have been the first time I went there.”

    Barrios was one year behind Rubio at South Miami High School. When they were in school together, Barrios said, Rubio and his other friends “were just messing around and partying. Trying to get pretty girls.” [snip]

    During Rubio’s last year in high school, he wrote a senior-year dedication, bequeathing his“ability to avoid getting killed to Angel.” It appears that Rubio was referring to Barrios, though Rubio did not mention Angel’s last name. Barrios did not respond to questions about the dedication.

    Record searches turned up no evidence that mug shots were taken.

    “I don’t think we got handcuffed and taken to jail,” Barrios said.

    Instead, Barrios said, the teens were given “a piece of paper,” a “PTA,” short for a promise to appear in court. But Barrios said, “I don’t think we even ended up going to court.”

    Yet the episode was unsettling.

    “You’re a kid,” Barrios said. “If the cops go up and ask your name, you get scared.”

    Rubio had witnessed the legal system up close in the previous years. His brother-in-law, Orlando Cicilia, had been arrested in 1987 in a major federal drug case.

    Cicilia’s arrest forced Rubio’s older sister, Barbara, out of her home, and she and her two young children had to live with Rubio’s family during his final days in high school. Cicilia was convicted during Rubio’s senior year.

    A year after Cicilia was sentenced, Rubio had his minor brush with the law. Court records state the charges against all three teens were dismissed in July, two months after their arrest. Law enforcement officials say it was common in those days for minor offenses at the park to be dismissed.

    Admin: what I am hearing is that the establishment plan is to steal the nomination at the convention. In 2012 Romney passed a new rule whereby you would have a brokered convention UNLESS the nominee had a majority in eight (8) states. If there were two candidates that would be simple, but because of pac money assholes like Kasich (a banker and lobbyist), jebediah (a businessman whose partners in five prior business ventures each went to jail, and who along with the richest man in Mexico who also owns the New York Times have the Obama phone contract), Rubio (very green and the biggest necon of the group), plus the anti establishment contingent, i.e. Cruz, Carson and Paul will go on, which means that while Trump may win it will be hard for him to win a majority in eight states. Compounding the problem is the fact that again under Romney there are 276 superdelegates which represents 5% of the delegate vote, and every of them is an establishment whore. So the trick will be to get other candidates to drop out and to support Trump who is fighting the same anti establishment war as they are. Also, to get lawyers and politicians with convention experience to get the above rule rescinded at the convention. If the establishment gets their nominee, then he is a ringer put in to lose the convention, so the democrat nominee can continue the Obama project of dismantling the Constitution, promoting racial strife, and moving the nation toward globalization—common core yes, gun confiscation, yes, etc.

    I wonder sometimes if Hillary is looking at Trump’s successes and regretting her Obot-filled campaign’s strategy of sticking with Obama like a dog humping his leg.

  • jbstonesfan

    Why Hillary was not prepared after 7 years of serving and observing Obama indicates to me that while she is intellectually smarter than all candidates running, her “street smarts” are severely lacking. Trump may not be a policy “wonk” but he knows what the masses want to hear and delivers it in plain, simple, understandable terms. Bill had both the intellectual and street smarts, but truthfully he looks a bit tired and Trump trapped him and Hillary (with he help of Fox News) with he old womanizing crap.

  • wbboei

    Jb, I too have been studying the situation these past eight years, and have learned a great deal from Admin and you and the rest of the people on this blog. But what I have begun to understand of late is not simply that the nomination was stolen from her, and that people around her like Bil Gwatney and Stephanie Stubbs Jones died on the eve of the convention, and that she acted like she would fight, then folded and then joined his team, is that this is not the anomoloy I thought it was at the time, but rather a recurring pattern which we have seen over the years. I meant the 1960 election was stolen–we know that now but we did not at the time. The 2000 election was stolen. And the other thing we have learned is abot the assassinations and the people behind them. We have learned that he game is rigged to the point that the elites select not only the candidates who will win the nomination, but even who is the designated winner and who is the designated loser. I would infer from the way Admin predicted the rise of Trump and his march through Georgia that Admin understands part of this, and maybe more. I must confess at the time that I didn’t. But I do now. And part of the reason is you will not get it if all you have to rely on his conventional media and what the parties say. People deplore congress because they spend money and do not represent the people. But once you understand that they are owned lock stock and barrel, and use websites like mapquest to tell you who the owners are, once you understand that big media is not in the business of ferreting out the truth, but is simply promulgating a statist narrative, and playing on the punch and judy routine between the two parties, and understand the continuity from one party to the next, and finally who benefits from this state of affairs–the criminal law question, qui bono, you realize what Trump is up against. If you put him side by side against all the other candidates, all of them and I mean all of them—except him are owned by someone. And none of them would be willing to give up what they have to run for president, which is what he has done. And none of them are willing to rock the boat or have the courage to take on the system. If Hillary was the heroine we thought she was she never would have folded. She is part of the establishment and there is no denying it. And frankly the way the game had been rigged, Bush was supposed to be the Republican candidate, Hillary the Democrat candidate, this was supposed to be the year of the woman, those instructions had already been telegraphed and she was feted to win. That was the deal. Then along came Trump, this email scandal and questions about her tenure as SOS which could not be swept under the table by statements like she was the greatest because she put on the most air miles. And hovering over this entire meangerie are outfits like the military industrial complex, and the CIA, which is a scarey organization with tentacles that reach into everything. Finally, the banking agenda which is the driving force behind the promotion of world government. Yes, people are waking up, as their rights are being systematically stripped away, but if we are going to have any chance, it will depend on a leader and at this point that happens to be Trump. Through Obama the elites have tried to boil the frog too fast, and people are catching on. You have other mechanisms to restore liberty like the Convention of States, and a Hillary victory may be the catalyst for something of that nature, but that is a very heavy lift easily thwarted by the elites. And the worst of the elites is the Bush crime family. If Donald gets the nomination, then he will win the debates, even with big media pulling for Hillary. She is not the same candidate as she was in 2008, she has never faced a candidate like him in a debate, and he will go for the throat on many issues, despite media efforts to thwart him.

    I’m still mulling over the pattern I noticed the day admin talked about a politician who betrayed Hillary, then later asked her to campaign for him and she did. First Bill, then this politician (and maybe there are other examples, as well), and Obama… they cheat (on) her, steal from her, betray her, and then she is forever theirs. It’s a disturbing pattern.

    Update III: Conservative intellectuals to issue manifesto denouncing Trump. In a special all-Trump edition of National Review! It’s over for Trump now gals and guys. This should put Trump over the top even in Hawaii and Massachusetts come November.

    These are not conservatives.

    They are neocons.

    At one time, when Bill Buckley and Bill Rusher were around they were conservative.

    Buckley himself was reportedly unhappy with the devolution of the magazine he and Rusher started, by the time he retired.

    George Will is no conservative.

    He is that Victorian circus freak known as the boneless wonder.

    It is understandable. If you sole obsession is a rise to power, everything you do is predicated on that basis. In that case, the question is not what has this individual done for me–or to me in the past. The question is what can they do for me in the future. She can tell you owe me one for what you did to me before, and one more for not holding it against you but campaigning for you thereafter. And now it is your turn to deliver, and it needs to be DOUBLE INDEMNITY.

    As the British Foreign Office said in WW1:

    “Gentlemen don’t read other people’s mail.”

    And Putin is a fine fellow.

    He may not be perfect, but–

    At least he is not working day and night like Obama is

    To destroy the United States

    And where Obama is concerned

    He believes you should never give a sucker i.e. the big media beloved messiah

    An even break

    But I am sure he has given express instructions to the Kremlin

    If you happen to get the emails, do not read them, delete them immediately

    Shame on Gates for spreading such vicious lies

    But nothwithstanding all the strum and drang it does not matter. It changes nothing. Bernie will be swatted down at the convention, by the same people who swatted us down at the convention eight years ago. You cannot run a successful grass roots campaign in that party. The elites have too much control. If Hillary cannot get it done, they will turn to Devil Patrick and Matthews will get the same old honeymoon feeling and thrill up the knee he did last time. I can hardly wait. And the Republicans who would rather lose than evolve will focus their attention not on winning the election but on taking down the insurgents. I have no doubt they will destroy the party in the process but being congentily stupid like they most certainly are they will be glad to lose, just as long as the money keeps flowing in. The money is what counts. Winning is for suckers, when you have a uniparty.

    correction: thrill up his leg. Matthews has metal knees and a metal brain which receives radio waves 24/7

    NRO issues its manifesto of butt hurt. I said I think yesterday that it was all over but the screaming. This is the screaming.

    The hostile takeover is almost complete. For their last remuneration, before the new owner fires them and makes them completely irrelevant, there is sometimes a last service rendered to the old boss. It can be a eulogy, or a desperate attempt at self aggrandizement because they know they are going to be rejects, or it can be spit spraying rage because they never had a gig so easy and another is not coming up. Goodbye “pure” Republican assholes. This is what sore losers look like.

  • Mormaer

    Bob Dole, age one thousand or so, smushed Cruz last night on television. I heard him. He did not endorse Trump but basically said it was workable. That was the cue to the new Republican thinking that they can manage him. I don’t think they can, I think Trump will manage them like the NYC building commission, but if they want to use that as a rationalization and acceptance in the five stages of grief go for it.

    How did professional pols, public thinkers, elites, globalists, fancy power lawyers, media, and general stupid shitheads get themselves into such a spot? Greed and they have been playing whack a mole with the public for many years. Consent of the governed is not high on their list of priorities. As any population, region, demographic in the US expressed any concern, disagreement, objection, facts, or malcontent generally they were whacked until they went underground again like prairie dogs or moles. The largest group I can think of were the moderate Democrats who were told to leave the Democratic party by DNC idiots. The Republicans did it to the Tea party. That is a whole lot of moles and they are not going to stay subterranean for ever. So the moles who have been whacked, repeatedly and cruelly, are in revolt. And whacked moles are angry moles. They are not interested in importing more moles to spread the horrors of globalism nor constitutional minutiae on why a Canadian can be the president or how European border-less states ruled by diktat from Brussels is superior as it explodes from dysfunction and bankruptcy, or the moles must obey their betters at the NRO on the Kelly File or the NYT/WaPo. Cause. And. Effect. It bites.

    Through Obama the elites have tried to boil the frog too fast, and people are catching on.

    Don’t leave out Merkel. And Brussels and Cameron with the Brexit trying to “un-boil” the frog. Leaked studies showing how disastrous the EU has been for all of the individual countries except Germany in terms of trade, currency problems, and employment. It is a nightmare and Soros and the Davos monsters warning and threatening “you agreed to this and you are going to complete it” with Goldman Sachs spreading money around trying to prop it up with media propaganda on the Brexit. Without the financial hub of London the EU is a headless chicken.

    All of these fires globally and elite globalists can’t stomp them out. Obama is useless to them now. So are the globalist Bushes who were cued up to handle it in the west next so no backup coming there and they are trying pitifully to deal with Trump with virtue signaling dummies debating in Parliament. Too greedy, too fast, and too incompetent so it implodes.

  • Felix_the_Infidel

    The Republican establishment seems to be making its last stand against Trump. The good news, the peasants of District 12 will have none of it.

    REQUIEM FOR A LOBBYIST (NEXT STOP RYKERS ISLAND)

    Yes, yes:

    We had it all/

    It was all arranged

    To allow us

    To get YOUR money/

    We-had-it-all/

    A cash machine

    And an empire

    On which the sun never set

    But then . . . we blew it/

    They gave guys like us

    This much wealth and power

    And now?

    The above is, of course, fiction.

    The real story is the Bush Crime Family.

    As a book coming out in this week will reveal.

    Which is timely, authoritative, and well documented.

    The writer has upped his security, as has Donald.

  • wbboei

    Remember how the Bush crime family spread the rumor that McCain had a black child?

    Remember how Perot withdrew from the race claiming that his daughter’s lives had been threatened by the Bush family.

    That is what we are dealing with—only worse, much, much worse.

    Read the book if you get a chance.

    Politically, Bush Sr.. poppy as he is affectionately called is responsible for this entire move away from the party of small government to the globalist model which denegrates the Constitution. Reagan people tried to prevent him from being the vice president, preferring Kemp, but the money men had their way, and eight years later, there he was, president, taking credit for the fall of the Berlin Wall, and uttering those fateful words, New World Order, which was once tin foil hat stuff, and now US Policy—giving away the future of the American People brick by brick so people like him could grow rich beyond their wildest dreams, like the sociopaths they most certainly are.

    We also know that Nixon thought Bush Sr. was stupid, and wondered how a guy as smart as his father, Prescott Bush could have a slow bell like poppy for a son. I gather they did not have paternity tests in those days. When he failed in his efforts to secure public office, Prescott called in a favor from Nixon. Prescott had helped Nixon become vp and he asked Nixon to get his boy a job. (Climb upon my knees poppy boy, etc.) And based on prior experience, and the fact that the private attorney for the Bush family was the head of the CIA, what better thing to do with that loser than make him head of the CIA. A little known fact is that in the early 1950s poppy worked for the CIA, a fact which he denied at his confirmation hearings but is now a matter of record. There is much more about him, his proximity to the Kennedy assassination, his proximity to the botched Reagan assasssination, his stonewalling of the Iran Contra investigation headed up by Paul Weiss superlawyer Arthur Liman, there is that and so much more in the new book. These are known facts, but mainstream media dare not report them.

    I am not surprised.

    But what is the alternative?

    I suppose it is Ted.

    An old acquaintance of mine

    A golf psychologist

    Who assured me I was beyond hope

    Wrote a book called

    GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT.

    That same axiom applies to politics.

    Conservatism such as we see today is a fraud.

    It supports a whole cast of characters wrapped up in the game of failure theater.

    No one in their group is saying what Trump is saying–about winning.

    And none of their preferred candidates are free from special interests.

  • wbboei

    And by the way, shame on her, the latest contributor to confusion is Kim Strassel.

    I thought better of her.

    She answers Hillary’s point that there is no establishment

    By assuring us that we are all part of the establishment

    Thanks Kim. We now have clarity and alignment.

    This is the old ploy that CBS wise man Eric Sevarid first identified:

    To blame everyone is to blame no one.

    And Warren Buffett–bless his heart, is just like you.

    If you want to know who the establishment is that is taking us down the tubes

    Listen to what Roger Stone is saying.

  • wbboei

    In today’s WSJ, one of the most authoritative legal voices in the country, a former federal judge and attorney general of the highest repute weighs in on the fate of the Hillary email business. I will not recount the fine points of his analysis, which proceed with geometric logic, but merely point out his conclusion: that if Comey fails to recommend action, and/or the Justice Department fails to take action, the public will not stand for it, and for that reason Obama will have to take some kind of action. That could be the excuse he has been looking for to get his own successor in there, in exchange for a pardon. The terms of the pardon would be silence, but once it is given it is not enforceable, except perhaps if it is backed by a lethal threat. If you think that is fanciful, again, read that book.

  • totally disgusted

    For Clinton to say that the republicans spread division and blaming just rings so hollow when the left has slammed so many Americans as racists etc.
    If this is their best case for Hillary, its just pathetic.

    Hillary has brought this on herself and yes it is very sad. Every time she praises o and his administration her poll numbers drop further. How can they be this stupid. More important Hillary is showing no leadership. Trump and Sanders are offering to lead in different directions. Hillary has just become a follower.

    If you think our society is trash and our political system is dysfuntional you are not alone.

    Here is what happens, when no one is willing to push back:

    Initially, the rallying cry is for equality

    Later, it morphs into a rallying cry for racial preferences to attone for societal sins

    Later, it becomes black/gender studies and sensitity training as seen in communist societies

    Later, it becomes micro aggressions where the test is all in the mind of the beholder

    Later, it becomes rewriting history to eliminate all vestiges of western civilization

    Later, it becomes banning free speech because someone might take offense

    This is how the left works. And every time they do this, the establishment apologizes and surrenders.

    Therein lies another reason not to trust the establishment–and we at least know who they are.

    Years ago, I hired the assistant deal of MIT to study a workplace situation which was going off the rails. He did a good job, but one of the things he wanted to do was to go to a seminar on bullying, where the guest speaker was Jerry Brown. Its a long haul from Cambridge to San Francisco, so naturally I said no, waste of money. Little did I know this was how everything would evolve. Which was why he was the Asst Dean of MIT and I was not. As with the old Smith Act have are you or have you ever been . . the answer is no.
