Over the next 2 years the United States of America will be either be destroyed outright, or die a slow, never ending, suffocating, descent into collapse,(oh wait, already there.) That is of course dependent on the People willing- or not, to accept such a fate.

To those people in all CONTINENTS across the Earth, to you people who wish for clarity, not confusion, then I was sent here to PROVIDE THAT Clarity! Of course, I can neither CONFIRM, nor Deny, such things will in fact happen, as only God knows the timetable of humanity. In fact every word I or you ever spoke or wrote, has been WRITTEN!

And just for the record, I am not a CHRISTIAN ZIONIST, I AM A BELIEVER IN CHRIST!

In order to understand what THEY have planned for humanity, it is IMPORTANT to understand the players involved, I find it interesting that many of the players involved have no clue that they are indeed being "played."


Divine Sign for Israel? Hagee Explains Blood Moons

By Erick StakelbeckCBN News CorrespondentWednesday, February 12, 2014


SAN ANTONIO -- The Book of Genesis says God uses the sun, moon, and stars for signs and seasons. Examples can be found throughout the Bible.Think of how a star led the wise men to Jesus or how the sun stood still as Joshua led Israel to victory over its enemies.According to Pastor John Hagee, God is getting ready to speak this way once again."There's a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way," Hagee told CBN News."I believe that in these next two years, we're going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world," he predicted.

Four Blood Moons

In his latest book,*Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change, Hagee lays out what he calls celestial signals. He describes how a series of blood moons in 2014 and 2015 will have great significance for Israel.*Although single blood moons happen fairly regularly, four appearing so closely together is extremely rare. There have only been a series of blood moons a handful of times over the past 500 years.So what exactly is a blood moon and what is the biblical significance?"A blood moon is when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon," Hagee explained. "And the sun is shining through the atmosphere of the Earth and casts up on the moon a red shadow. And so the moon appears to be red."Such moons appear several times in scripture.In the book of Joel, God says there will be "wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire…the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord."In Acts, the Apostle Peter repeats that verse from Joel. And the book of Revelation says that during the Great Tribulation, "the moon will become like blood."Blood moons are set to appear in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in September 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot.The timing is the same for 2015 -- a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days."The sun and the moon and the Earth are controlled by God almighty," Hagee said. "He is the one that is getting them in a direct alignment on a certain day at a certain time -- but each time, it's a Passover or Sukkot.

Historic Significance

In the past, the rare appearance of four blood moons on these feast days has coincided with major events for Israel and the Jewish people.In 1492, Spain expelled the Jews. Columbus also discovered America, which became a safe haven for the Jewish people."In each of these blood moons, you have something that begins in tragedy and ends in triumph," Hagee explained.For instance, in 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation."After 2,000 years, God supernaturally brought them from 66 nations and a nation was born in a day," Hagee noted. "That again was a supernatural something that happened following the tragedy of the Holocaust."In 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War and recaptured Jerusalem."For the first time in 2,000 years, Jerusalem and the State of Israel were together again," Hagee said.

Nuclear Threat

The blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are poised to appear as Iran works toward nuclear weapons and Israel's neighbors, Egypt and Syria, are in chaos."The only reason that Iran will not acquire a nuclear bomb will be that Israel chooses a military solution to that crisis," Hagee told CBN News."I believe that if that happens, it will start a series of events that will change the course of world history," he said. "If Israel does not, then it will still change the course of world history."Hagee has been warning of the Iranian nuclear threat through his work withChristians United for Israel, which he founded in 2006. It is now the largest pro-Israel organization in America, with some 1.3 million members.He holds nights to honor Israel across the country and at San Antonio's Cornerstone Church, where he serves as senior pastor. The first event, in 1981, drew bomb threats and vandalism from anti-Semites.Yet Hagee continues his mission."If there was ever a time for the Christians of America to stiffen their spine and stand up and speak up, it's now," Hagee admonished. "To see evil and not call it evil is evil. Not to speak is to speak. We cannot be silent and receive God's approval at a time like this."He said it's still unclear what the coming blood moons will bring, but he is certain of one thing."When all is said and done, the flag of Israel will be flying over the walls of the city of Jerusalem when Messiah comes, and it's going to be forever," he said. "And every nation that rises up in judgment against Israel God will punish and punish severely."


Four Bloods Moons

What the Blood Moons Mean

By Thomas Taylor


Joel 2:30-31 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. (31) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

What are the Blood Moons?

The modern four blood moons discovery took place in 2008 by Pastor Mark Biltz. He is an expert on all things Jewish. He had done extensive study on the subject of the Feasts of Israel. Well, at one point he was looking at the passages about the blood moon associated with the Day of the Lord and he thought about checking out when blood moons will occur by going to the NASA website. A blood moon is a lunar eclipse the creates a reddish color on the moon.**On the NASA website they have a full schedule of all eclipses, both lunar and solar. He was looking at the dates and matching them up with the Jewish calendar and an amazing discovery came into visibility – blood moons occur on Jewish Feast Days on occasion. Then he realized that on extremely rare occasions four blood moons would happen on four Jewish Feasts Days within a two year time period! So it is obvious this is not just a random freak occurrence but a definite sign from God.The question is, what is God saying? Is it related to Jesus’ Coming? Back in 2008 Pastor Mark Biltz appeared on Prophecy in the News and talked about the events. I got the DVD on the subject that he produced (which no one can find anymore.) On the DVD Pastor Mark talks about the four blood moons on Jewish Feast Days, called a Tetrad, coming in 2014 and 2015. He discovered also that blood moons in the past occurred on special events associated with Jews like the Spanish Inquisition, the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948, and the capture of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War. He concluded something special is going to occur in with the Blood Moons of 2014/2015 that we need to watch for but he did not know what it would be. But the event that Pastor Mark focused on, based on his knowledge of the Jewish Feasts, was September 23, 2015 – Yom Kippur – as apotential*day the Lord would return. *The four blood moons occur about the time of this particular feast on the following feasts:



However, there’s more to it than these four blood moons!*Two more solar eclipses happen on Biblical days in 2015!:

American-Jewish billionaire blasts Obama over negotiations with Tehran; says US should show Iran nuclear capabilities.



NEW YORK – During a panel at Yeshiva University on Tuesday evening, Sheldon Adelson, noted businessman and owner of the newspaper*Israel Hayom, suggested that the US should use nuclear weapons on Iran to impose its demands from a position of strength.Asked by moderator Rabbi Shmuley Boteach whether the US should negotiate with Iran if it were to cease its uranium enrichment program, Adelson retorted, “What are we going to negotiate about?”

Adelson then imagined what might happen if an American official were to call up an Iranian official, say “watch this,” and subsequently drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of the Iranian desert."Then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development. You want to be peaceful? Just reverse it all, and we will guarantee you that you can have a nuclear power plant for electricity purposes, energy purposes’," Adelson said.“So a tremendous demonstration of American strength?” Boteach clarified. “So that they would get the message?”“It’s the only thing they understand,” Adelson said.“And do you see the current negotiations as a sign of weakness?” Boteach asked.“Absolutely,” Adelson said.Adelson, who donated tens of millions of dollars to defeated Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during the most recent campaign, criticized the Obama administration's willingness to engage the Iranians diplomatically."[It's] the worst negotiating tactic I could ever imagine, my entire life," he said."Because you can’t get anything. He’s not saying to them, Roll back your entire program and show that you’re willing to be peaceful. So, roll it all back… and we’ll roll back the sanctions…. What is that, a game of chicken, who’s going to blink first?"In response to Adelson's comments, Boteach said whether the remarks were regarded as serious or an exaggeration to exemplify the extreme measures that the US must take to thwart Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, the international community often employs double standards on Israeli issues.“When I heard Sheldon make his remark, my initial thought was that his purpose was to goad his more liberal critics into attacking the policy so that their double standards on nuclear threats against Israel could be exposed,” said Rabbi Boteach in a statement.“I would hope that those who seem alarmed by Sheldon’s overstatement on the extent to which the United States should go to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon will at least protest that much more loudly against its actual development,” he added.

Sands: Hacking went further than email, websites

Associated Press*ByHANNAH DREIERFeb 18, 2014 5:44 PMLAS VEGAS (AP) — Casino giant Las Vegas Sands Corp. said Tuesday that hacking into their websites and internal systems last week went deeper than the company had previously known.All of the Las Vegas-based company's sites were down for six days after hackers posted images apparently condemning comments CEO Sheldon Adelson made about using nuclear weapons on Iran.

Sands said hackers crashed its email system and stole employees' Social Security numbers.But a video posted online appears to catalog stolen information that goes much further.Sands spokesman Ron Reese said the company is reviewing the 11-minute video that appears to show dozens of administrator passwords, including passwords for slot machine systems and player information at Sands' Bethlehem, Pennsylvania casino. It also shows employee files and a diagram of the company's internal networks. He said the company did not know about the additional incursions until it started investigating the video.

"We have now determined that the hackers reached at least some of the company's internal drives in the US containing some office productivity information made up largely of documents and spreadsheets," he said in a statement. "We are reviewing the video to determine what, if any, customer or employee data may have been accessed."The FBI, Secret Service and Nevada Gaming Control Board are investigating the hacking. Neither of the federal agencies would comment on the matter, and Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett also declined to comment, saying he had not yet seen the video.A person using the name Zhao Anderson sent the video to The Associated Press on Monday by email, and it was also posted on YouTube by a person using the same name. The AP could not verify the person's identity, or the information contained in the email.

Reese declined to say whether Sands had changed its administrative passwords in response to the hacking.The hacking affected Sands' corporate website, as well as the sites for casinos in Las Vegas, China, Singapore, and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Sands restored the websites Monday afternoon, though not exactly as they were before the attack.Adelson is an outspoken supporter of Israel and a generous donor to U.S. Republican Party campaigns. He spoke in October about dropping a nuclear bomb on Iran, saying strength was the only thing the country understands.The hackers at one point referred to themselves as the "Anti WMD Team." Cybersecurity experts say it could have taken several months for so-called "hacktivists" to complete an attack on Sands' networks.

Sands, which is the world's largest casino company in terms of revenue, also owns the world's largest casino, in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau. The company's net income was $2.31 billion last year.Sands has not said what effect the hacking attack has had on the company's bottom line. Sands has said it has been able to continue booking visitors by telephone.Since the hacking became public last Tuesday, Sands stock has risen about 3.7 percent to $80.69.

Governors Christie, Walker and Kasich woo billionaire Sheldon Adelson at Vegas event


By Philip Rucker,*Published: MARCH 29, 7:43 PM ET*E-mail the writer

LAS VEGAS — To New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Republicans must“stop killing each other.”*Start focusing on winning elections, he thundered, or keep arguing and “form a university.”To Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the GOP ought to quit being the party that cuts programs and takes goodies away from people. “We can’t be the accountant party,” he said. “We’ve got to be the party of more freedom, more opportunity, more prosperity.”And to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Republicans should prove to middle-class voters that they under*stand their problems by seizing the “moral high ground” and guiding those who are struggling to make ends meet out of the shadows.

Three of the nation’s most prominent governors, all touted as potential Republican presidential candidates in 2016, presented advice here Saturday about how their divided and demoralized party should refocus to reclaim the White House.Under the watchful eyes of a few hundred powerful Jewish donors — none more heavily courted than billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson — Christie, Walker and Kasich also emphasized their support for Israel and advocated a muscular foreign policy.“We cannot have a world where our friends are unsure of whether we’ll be with them and our enemies are unsure of whether we’ll be against them,” Christie said. “In New Jersey, no one has to wonder whether I’m for them or against them.”The three seemed less confident speaking about foreign affairs than they were about domestic policy. Christie drew murmurs when he referred to the “occupied territories,” a phrasing some in the audience said was a gaffe.Officially, the governors were in Las Vegas to address the spring leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which has long promoted a staunchly pro-Israel and interventionist foreign policy. But their political objective was to build relationships with potential benefactors who could bankroll future campaigns.The biggest draw was Adelson, who hosted the conference at the Venetian, his sprawling and flashy casino hotel. Adelson and his wife, Miriam, spent more than $93*million in the 2012 elections and have signaled they will spend heavily in the next presidential campaign.

Adelson was not present for Walker’s speech, but he arrived a few minutes into Christie’s remarks and took a seat in the front row. He later ate lunch next to Kasich. Although there were a few hundred people seated in the ballroom, the Ohio governor frequently directed his remarks to “Sheldon” in his speech, as if he were having a one-on-one chat.Concluding his speech, Kasich said: “In Ohio, we’re no longer fly-over [country], Sheldon. We want you to invest. We want you to get to know us.”Christie, Walker and Kasich — as well as*former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who addressed a smaller dinner of the most active donors Thursday night — each met privately with Adelson in what some political observers have dubbed*“the Sheldon Primary.”

Andy Abboud, Adelson’s top political adviser and the senior vice president for governmental relations at Las Vegas Sands Corp., described the meetings as casual. He said Adelson is familiar with the governors’ positions on Israel and online gaming — two issues that motivate his political giving — and that they did not make formal presentations or lay out policy agendas.“It’s literally Diet Cokes, coffee and water,” Abboud said. “It’s not about your positions and what you’ll do about it, but about everything — your families, your trips. It’s important to Sheldon to know what makes people tick and to establish a comfort level.”Abboud said Adelson is keeping an open mind about whom to back in 2016, although he favors those seen as most likely to appeal to broad demographics and to prevail in the general election.“People are waiting for us to have puffs of smoke coming from the Venetian, looking to see who the candidate will be,” Abboud said. “It’s a very open field as to who they’re considering, and it’s way too premature to figure out who the favorite is.”Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who is aggressively preparing for a presidential campaign, did not attend the Republican Jewish Coalition gathering. But he was the subject of implicit criticism by some who were there. Several speakers here decried the GOP’s growing noninterventionist strain in what was interpreted in part as a shot at Paul.John R. Bolton, a hawkish Republican and a former ambassador to the United Nations, said he fears the “rising tide of neo-isolationism within the Republican Party.”

The potential presidential candidates, none of whom is Jewish, found creative ways to emphasize their strong support for Israel and Jewish traditions.Walker talked about his father’s first pilgrimage to Israel in the 1980s. The governor said that at home during the holidays, he displays both a Christmas tree and a menorah. And he said that he had named his first son Matthew, which is translated in Hebrew as “gift of God.”Christie spoke at length about a recent trip he took to Israel with his family. He said he was taken with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “strength and *resolve.” When he met Israeli President Shimon Peres, Christie said, “I felt like he had walked out of a history book.”Christie also quipped that he likes traveling to Israel because, he said, the country is “about the same size as New Jersey.”

Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin

Scott Walker goes broad on foreign policy

By*KENNETH P. VOGEL*| 3/29/14 2:36 PM EDT*Updated: 3/30/14 1:42 PM EDTLAS VEGAS – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in a Saturday morning speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition offered broad, but vague support for a muscular foreign policy and support for Israel, stopping short of the level of specificity craved by his audience.The speech, to a gathering of influential Jewish donors and activists well-schooled in Middle Eastern affairs, would seem to offer little to skeptics who see foreign policy as a weakness for a potential Walker 2016 presidential run.

The speech, to a gathering of influential Jewish donors and activists well-schooled in Middle Eastern affairs, would seem to offer little to skeptics who see foreign policy as a weakness for a potential Walker 2016 presidential run.Walker chided the Obama administration as weak on national defense, specifically citing diminishing troop levels, and asserted “Israel should have an ally in the United States.” And while he conceded that foreign policy is “not an area that governors typically look at,” he mentioned that he was commander in chief of the Wisconsin National Guard, before shifting gears to domestic policy, a subject on which he was more animated.He did reach for cultural common ground with his audience by explaining that he lights a menorah at the governor’s mansion during Hannukah and named his son “Matthew” – which means “gift from God” in Hebrew.Walker’s speech stood in stark contrast to that which preceded it, from former Ambassador John Bolton, who offered a specific critique of American foreign policy in hot spots around the world, and even took an oblique swipe at the GOP’s libertarian wing. “Unfortunately, we see within our own party, a rising tide of what can only be called isolationism,” he said.The RJC conference has become a cattle call of sorts for prospective GOP presidential candidates, featuring speeches from prospective GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and John Kasich.Walker brushed off a question from RJC executive director Matt Brooks about 2016, saying he’s focused on his own reelection this fall.“Any Republican who is talking about anything other than 2014 is doing a disservice to not only the party, but the country,” he said.

Governor John Kasich of Ohio

Kasich's Las Vegas speech encourages investment in Ohio

By*Joe VardonThe Columbus Dispatch**•**Saturday March 29, 2014 6:30 PMComments: 2**3**84**125LAS VEGAS – Gov. John Kasich finished his speech today to about 300 mostly wealthy, Jewish Republican donors from all across the United States with “in Ohio, we’re no longer a flyover, Sheldon.”*The “Sheldon” he addressed several times during his speech here is casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, whose Venetian hotel and casino is hosting the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual spring conference. The event could have implications for the 2016 Republican presidential primary, observers say, because of the $93 million Adelson gave to Republican-leaning causes during the 2012 election.*“We do want you to come. We want you to invest,” Kasich said in closing and apparently speaking again to Adelson. “We want you to get to know us. Because Ohio really is the heart of it all.”*The conference drew national media attention not only because of Adelson, but also because of the others who spoke. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — two names often mentioned as possible presidential candidates in 2016 — also spoke today, as did former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush spoke Thursday night at a private dinner in an airport hangar.*If, as some had speculated, the speakers were here jockeying for Adelson’s support for a hypothetical presidential campaign, Kasich’s tack was far different from the others'. Kasich, who is up for re-election this year and has said repeatedly that keeping his governorship is his only goal, delivered a speech identical in concept to dozens he has given throughout Ohio in the past few months.*

Kasich spoke of balancing budgets and job creation; he talked about expanding Medicaid without mentioning the words*Medicaid*orexpansion; and touched on topics that generally draw people’s attention but rarely elicit applause, such as reforming education, battling prescription-drug abuse and “helping people in the shadows.”*

Perhaps the lone difference between this speech and those he has given across Ohio was that Kasich repeatedly inserted Adelson’s name, as if speaking directly to him.*“It’s a nothingburger,” Republican Jewish Coalition executive director Matt Brooks said of Kasich’s Adelson references, downplaying them. “People were listening to the substance of the speech.”*

Adelson, who contributed about $11,400 to the Republican Governors Association's Ohio fund for Kasich in 2010, sat next to Kasich at lunch before his speech.*Adelson also walked into the room just as Christie began his speech but didn’t attend Walker’s or Bolton’s talks.*While Kasich made no mention of anything related to foreign policy until he was asked about it in a question-and-answer session, the other speakers focused on it.*

“We cannot have a world where our friends are unsure if we will be with them and our enemies unsure if we are going to be against them,” Christie said. “In New Jersey, no one needs to wonder if I am for them or against them.”*Walker said in his speech that foreign policy is “not an area governors typically look at,” but he said that Ronald Reagan’s breaking of the air-traffic-controllers’ union in 1981 “sent a message around the world.”*It “sent an even more powerful message to our adversaries that if you mess with the United States of America, there will be swift and certain action, and I believe we ought to be strong like that,” Walker said.*Former Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to address the conference at dinner tonight.

Todays Modern American Version of a Communist Political Party-The Democraps!

By the way, I am probably the only "Internet Poster" in the entire world , who for years now has called for A COMPLETE RE-DEFINITION of the word Communist/Communism. It should have always been defined as a CRIMINAL ACT or a CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION, THIEVES, THIEVERY, DICTATORIAL SERIAL MURDERER'S, MOBSTERS, Going against God, Anti-Family, Homosexual Sadist. Among a few words...

communism[*kom-yuh-niz-uhm ]
1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.
2. a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.
3. the principles and practices of the*Communist Party.

A whole lotta Democrat corruption going*on
By Michelle Malkin**•**March 28, 2014 04:33 AM

Has Nancy Pelosi seen a newspaper lately? (Pro tip, hon: Like the Obamacare monstrosity, you have to read it to find out what’s in it.) I’d love to see her face in the wake of the veritable epidemic of Democratic corruption now sweeping the country. Pelosi’s blink count must be off the charts.I’m going to make it easy on Pelosi and put all of the latest cases in one handy rogue’s gallery reference list. But let’s not be naive. It’s clear to me that the Barack Obama/Eric Holder DOJ is clearing the decks before the midterms. Prediction: The FBI’s GOP corruption shoe will drop right before the elections for maximum distraction and damage. For now, let’s take stock of the jackassery:

-The Dirty Democratic Mayors’ Club: Charlotte, N.C., Mayor Patrick Cannon, who bragged about partying with the Obamas to help grease the wheels for city projects, was arrested this week on federal corruption and influence-peddling charges. He’s accused of accepting gobs of cash payoffs and Las Vegas trips.The bust follows former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin’s conviction in January on corruption charges; former Trenton Mayor Tony Mack’s February conviction on cash bribes for a downtown parking garage; and former San Diego mayor and serial groper Bob Filner’s disgraceful resignation after conviction on sexual harassment-related charges; former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s conviction on extortion, bribery and conspiracy charges; and former Birmingham, Ala., Mayor Larry Langford’s corruption and bribery conviction.

-California state Democratic Sen. Leland Yee, gun grabber by day, alleged arms-trafficking gangsta by night: Yee made a decades-long career out of sanctimoniously demonizing gun owners and railing against the Second Amendment. He was arrested this week on corruption charges after an FBI sting found probable cause to believe Yee had conducted wire fraud and engaged in a conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally import firearms. The Chinatown pol went so far as to discuss “details of the specific types of weapons” with a prospective donor. Yee is currently a candidate for California’s secretary of state office.

-Pennsylvania state Democratic Sen. LeAnna Washington, party animal: This week, a judge ruled that the Keystone State could proceed with a trial against Washington, who reportedly forced her legislative staff for eight years to use taxpayer time and money for an annual birthday party whose proceeds were diverted to her campaign account. She is charged with felony theft of services and felony conflict of interest. More than a half-dozen former employees blew the whistle. “I am the f—ing senator,” she screamed at one staffer who objected. “I do what the f— I want, and ain’t nobody going to change me.”

-Rhode Island state Democratic House Speaker Gordon Fox, multiple-raid target: The powerful Democrat, beloved by the left for his gay-marriage activism, announced last weekend that he is stepping down from office after FBI raids on his home and work office. Fox is the target of several criminal investigations by the U.S. attorney’s office, FBI, IRS and state police. Mum’s the word so far on the nature of the alleged criminal activity involved.

-California state Democratic Sen. Ronald Calderon, all in the corrupted family: Calderon is on a paid leave of absence after being hit with a 24-count federal indictment for bribery and corruption. His brother also was charged with multiple counts of money laundering and influence peddling. Prosecutors allege the legislator accepted nearly $100,000 in bribes, plane trips, gourmet meals and golf games in exchange for political favors. He also is accused of paying his daughter $39,000 for a phony office job and paying $40,000 in “consulting” fees for a campaign website that didn’t exist.

-California state Democratic Sen. Roderick Wright, lying liar: Also on paid leave, the entrenched Los Angeles-area politician is now fighting his January conviction on felony perjury, false declaration of candidacy and fraudulent voting charges. Wright claimed to live in a rented room in an Inglewood home within his district, but the jury found his true residence was outside the district in upscale Baldwin Hills. The jury found he lied on candidacy declarations and voter registration documents and fraudulently voted in five elections.

-New York state Democratic Assemblyman Bill Scarborough, shady jet-setter: The FBI and state authorities raided his home and offices as part of a probe into his travel voucher practices. He blamed a “tabloid hit job” by the New York Post over questionable per diem claims totaling $60,000.

-Illinois state Democratic House Rep. Keith Farnham, child porn probe suspect: After sponsoring two bills to increase penalties for child porn possession, Farnham was the subject of state and federal raids last week on his home … for possession of child porn. Over the weekend, he resigned his seat citing “serious health issues.” There’s a euphemism.

Remember: Nancy Pelosi famously promised to “drain the moral swamp” and end the “culture of corruption.” She cast herself and her minions as America’s political clean-up crew. But once again, the culture of corruption boomerang has swung back around to smack Democrats in their smug mugs.The cynical Swamp Drainers just hope you forget it all by election time. Don’t.



I have 'chronicled' hundreds of Communist filth from every branch of government, and corporations, Lawyers, Police Chiefs/Police, Military Officials, Judges, Doctors, etc, etc.

These are just a few.

Former San Diego Mayor Filthy Filner


updated 5:01 PM EST 12.09.13Bob Filner sentenced in assaults on womenBy Josh Levs and David Simpson, CNN

CNN) -*Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner was sentenced Monday to 90 days in home confinement, three years' probation, and a series of fines totaling about $1,500 for assaulting three women while in office.



The 71-year-old*pleaded guilty in October*to forciblykissing or grabbing three women at campaign events or at City Hall -- one a felony false imprisonment charge, the other two misdemeanor battery charges. Filner entered the guilty plea under a deal with prosecutors.

The three women were among 19 who accused him of offensive behavior during his tenure as mayor and as a congressman.Filner will not serve prison time under the plea deal.GPS monitoring will track his whereabouts during his confinement. He'll be allowed to go out for medical and therapy appointments, religious services and meetings tied to his probation. He'll also be allowed to leave his apartment but stay within the apartment complex.

"I want to apologize to my family who have stood by me during this ordeal, to my loyal staff and supporters, to the citizens of San Diego, and most sincerely to the women I have hurt and offended," Filner said in prepared remarks at the start of the hearing."To all of you, I make the same promise I made to my family: to earn back your trust and my integrity no matter how long it takes and no matter what I have to do.

IN: Buffie “Mouthy” McFadyen Will Run for CD3

Published on*February 11, 2014 byColoradoPeakPolitics


What have we done to deserve such a fantastic gift?* Was it something*we said*that inspired Colorado Democrat Party Chair Rick Palacio to find a candidate, any candidate?* And a candidate they found.The Democratic candidate for CD3 will be [drum roll] former Democratic state representative and current Pueblo County Commissioner Mouthy McFayden.* Sorry, we mean Buffie McFadyen.* Instead of writing a whole new post about Mouthy, we would just like to revisit the one we posted last November McFadyen found herself in quite an awkward predicament.* From last year:

Former Democratic leader in the State House and current Pueblo County Commissioner Buffie McFadyen was the recipient of some special treatment by police during a potential DUI stop in Pueblo.* She was caught in a rather awkward situation —parked in a dirt lot at night, intoxicated and with a man who isn’t her husband. But she didn’t get a DUI – instead she got a ride home.*

But, it gets even better.* We have subsequently learned that McFadyen and her companion, the head of the Pueblo Democratic Party Ron Greenwell weren’t just drinking buddies.* According to*KRDO, they may or may not also benudists?* We couldn’t even make this stuff up, folks, if we tried.

Last January, Pueblo County Commissioner Buffie McFadyen told a Pueblo County Deputy that she and County Democratic Party Chair Ron Greenwell had just been dropped off by friends at a commuter lot on Swallows Road and Highway 50 in Pueblo West after spending “family night” at Desert Reef Hot Spring.While the Desert Reef Hot Spring is clothing optional on most days of the week, according to the website, “All day Friday is designated a suit only day and will not be clothing optional.”* McFadyen and Greenwell were at the springs on January 25th…a Friday.

Look, we’re not going to judge if McFadyen has…fans.* But, nudists, sorry.* We’re not talking about scenes from “Eyes Wide Shut” here – these are average Americans.* As a whole, we’re kind of pasty and flabby.

A Shocking Number The average African-American family is poorer than the average family in India.By*Kevin D. Williamson

The phrase “waving the bloody shirt” grew popular in the South as a description of Republicans’ alleged exaggeration of the crimes of the Ku Klux Klan, the paramilitary division of the Democratic party. It is an irony of history that waving the bloody shirt has in the Age of Obama become the Democrats’ primary mode of discourse. Oppose the Affordable Care Act?*Racism. Like the Second Amendment?*Racism. Black Barbie is on sale for half off, but white Barbie is full price?*Racism. Black holes sucking the energy out of your quadrant?*Why single out the black ones? Racism!Waving the bloody shirt is not only about making an emotional appeal — it’s a strategy for distraction. It became a bitter joke in the Soviet Union — whether the issue was the crimes of Stalin or the fact that the Lada was a piece of junk, the answer was always the same:*A u vas negrov linchuyut. The same principle is at work in today’s Democratic commentariat: As Americans start to notice what a fiasco Obamacare is . . . Oh, look! A Confederate flag! There is really nothing more satisfying to liberals than a Confederate flag sighting, though I wonder what they’d make of the fact that in my corner of Texas it is not unheard-of to see black men wearing Dixie belt buckles or T-shirts. (All of our necks are just different shades of red.) When Brad Paisley sings about the Confederate flag, it’s like Christmas morning for*Touré. Yet, despite the*daft insistence of Joan Walsh*and the Affiliated Suburban Pearl-Clutchers of America, there is no neo-Confederate revanche just around the corner. The idea is, however, a useful distraction. But a distraction from what?

From $4,995

Fifty years into the Democrats’ declaration of a war on poverty and President Kennedy’s first executive order for affirmative action, while spending $300 million a year on*worthless diversity workshops*and singing endless verses of “We Shall Overcome,” after enduring endless posturing from Barack Obama and the moral preening of his admirers, that is what black American families have to show for themselves: an average household net worth of $4,955. The average white household in these United States has a*net worth of $110,729. Black Americans’ median net worth is less than 5 percent that of white Americans.By way of comparison, black South Africans under apartheid had a median net worth about*6.8 percent that of white South Africans. Repeating: Black Americans are worse off relative to their white countrymen than black South Africans under apartheid were to theirs, a fact to which former*Washington Post*reporter Jon Jeter has drawn attention and from which he has drawn all the wrong conclusions. (Muppet News Flash:*Washington Post*straight-news reporter turns out to be a garden-variety liberal.) Philadelphia mayor John Street used to brag that “the brothers and sisters are running the city,” which would be more of a boast in a city with less criminal governance. Mayor Ray Nagin, whose fraud/conspiracy/money-laundering/bribery/tax-evasion trial should be getting under way any moment now, liked to promise that New Orleans would remain a “chocolate city.” A generation of one-party rule based on racial politics was enough to*doom Detroit.*Outside of the womb, the most dangerous place for a black American to be is in a*city run by Democrats.

Exclusive: Jason Jones and John Zmirak warn Republicans of great risks of interfering

Published: 03/02/2014 at 5:14 PM

Are you willing to send your child to die for Nikita Khruschev’s legacy? As history buffs will remember, Khrushchev was the man who brought the United States to the brink of nuclear war, and civilization to the very edge of extinction, in 1962 when he stuck his nose deep into our backyard by placing Soviet nuclear missiles 90 miles off our shore in Cuba.

Dying and killing for Khrushchev is precisely what any use of American troops in the current Ukrainian quagmire would amount to – since the flashpoint of conflict that could spark a global war is the status of the ancient Russian province of Crimea. That classically Russian region was arbitrarily transferred in 1954 by Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev without the approval of its Russian-speaking inhabitants. This capricious move hardly mattered at the time, since the whole Soviet Union was a vast and politically uniform totalitarian state. But that transfer became much more meaningful when that evil empire collapsed in 1990 – leaving Ukraine independent and the vast Russian Black Sea fleet headquartered in what was now a foreign country. Ukraine proper (without the grafted on appendage of the Crimea) was itself hopelessly divided among those who spoke Ukrainian and those who spoke Russian, and among Eastern rite Catholics and three separate, mutually hostile Eastern Orthodox churches – not to mention the restive Crimean Tatars, who’d survived Stalin’s attempted genocide in the 1930s.

Ukraine’s independence was a great historic victory for one of the martyred peoples of Europe.* Along with Poland and Byelorus, it was one of the lands that had suffered the most from the genocides and brutal wars launched by the vicious totalitarian Soviet and German regimes.* Some six to 10 million Ukrainians were intentionally starved to death by their Soviet occupiers, as part of the utopian Marxist plan for collectivizing agriculture. When the Germans invaded, they quickly proved that they were no liberators. Ukrainians, along with other Slavs, were to be treated as subhumans, fit only for grinding labor – and eventual deportation to death beyond the Urals, to make room for “Aryan” colonists. Or so the Nazis planned.

But Ukrainian independence in 1990 was also a dicey prospect, given the centuries-long Russian history of occupying and dominating that region. One advantage Ukraine had was an arsenal of nuclear weapons it had inherited from the Soviets. Had those weapons been left in its hands, Ukraine would have been forever safe from foreign aggression. But the U.S. and other nations intervened and convinced Ukraine to give those weapons back to Russia as part of a deal in 1994, in which we replaced its nuclear safety blanket with – a promise to defend Ukraine’s borders ourselves. That’s right. The geniuses of the Clinton administration thought world peace would be best served by making the dubious, artificial borders between Russia and Ukraine a trip wire for war between the United States and Russia. And now some saber-rattling Americans are calling for us to honor that thoughtless promise.

The situation in Ukraine is tragic. Every major political party is hopelessly corrupt, and a fierce hostility divides the western Ukrainians, who regard themselves as a recently freed captive nation, from those in the east who look to Russia as their patron and protector. The current crisis, brought on by a feckless attempt by the European Union to pull Ukraine out of the Russian sphere of influence, has seen the overthrow of a legitimately elected president by rioters in the streets – and his headlong flight for his life to the Russian border. Now the Russian speakers of Crimea want to peel their region away from the pro-EU faction that controls Kiev, and Putin’s Russia has chosen to help them.

Do you understand these events well enough to decide who is in the right? Neither do we. Nor do the same talking heads who promised, a decade ago, that bringing democracy to Iraq would be a “cakewalk,” which would “fund itself” through the oil revenues of a new, pro-American government presiding peacefully from Baghdad.

Eleven years, thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars later, Iraq is still a shattered and bloody “failed state” – and “experts” such as William Kristol and John McCain, who helped to promote that war, are somehow still taken seriously.


Now, as we crawl up to the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I – a massive conflict that began over fractious Slavic provinces that the combatants knew little about – we hear the voices of self-important commentators who claim that “American values” are at stake, and American “strength” must be put on display. In 1914, German, Austrian, French, Russian, Serbian and British prestige were all on the line – and the leaders of each of those nations put that prestige ahead of prudence, sanity and the sanctity of human life, with the outcome of more than 10 million dead, the destruction of three of those nations and the rise to power of the Bolsheviks, then the Nazis.

We should not imitate Khruschev by sticking our nose into Russia’s business, not even in defense of what warmongering idealists claim are American values. America has no more business tinkering in Ukraine than China has meddling in Mexico. We do not fully understand what is happening over there, and we have no stake in it. If we got involved, the Russians would rightly see us trying to treat their country as our colony – and they would respond with outraged national pride. And the Russians, unlike the Ukrainians, kept their nukes. Is it anything less than insane for us to risk a genocidal nuclear confrontation to safeguard Khrushchev’s whim, or to back the demands of one set of rioters against another?

If the tea party is really serious about shrinking big government, now is the time to walk that talk. Nothing grows government or breaks budgets like reckless wars of choice. So tea-party voters need to start making calls and sending emails to smack down those Republicans who opportunistically call President Obama “weak” for behaving responsibly. Any Republican who shouts for confrontation with Russia deserves to be crushed in the primaries by patriotic voters who refuse to waste the trillions of dollars and countless thousands of of lives that any conflict with Russia would cost us.

As Christians, we know that war should be the very last resort, once every other possible means has been tried to resolve a conflict. Do we say this because we are cowards? Or sickly humanitarians who prefer dishonor to death? No, we say it because we are realists, and we know what war amounts to: A carte blanche for all the worst forms of human behavior, from mass killing to gang rape, from mass theft to organized torture. That is what war*really*is, and those who chomp at the bit for the chance to exert military power ought to be labeled as what they are: the pornographers of violence.

Let Americans who crave the opportunity to “talk tough” and assert themselves find some other way to raise their low testosterone levels. Our soldiers didn’t sign up to be the plastic counters in these people’s game of Risk.

Democrat Donor Donald Sterling Caught on Tape Spewing Racist Comments

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 26, 2014, 4:24 PM

L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his GF he does NOT want her bringing black people to his games … including Magic Johnson … and it’s ALL on tape.

TMZ Sports has obtained audio of Sterling making the racist declaration during a heated argument on April 9th with V. Stiviano … after she posted a photo on Instagram posing with Magic.

Sterling rails on Stiviano — who ironically is black and Mexican — for putting herself out in public with a black person (she has since taken the pic down). But it doesn’t end there. You have to listen to the audio to fully grasp the magnitude of Sterling’s racist worldview. Among the comments:

– “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” (3:30)

– “You can sleep with . You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that … and not to bring them to my games.” (5:15)

– “I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” (7:45)

– “…Don’t put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.” (9:13)

Sterling has a documented history of allegedly racist behavior — he’s been sued twice by the federal government for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos.



[B] Donald Sterling’s Girlfriend — Who Is V. Stiviano?! [Pics]

Posted by*Gregory F. Worth


Before she posted the photo that started a race war withDonald Sterling, his then-girlfriend V. Stiviano flooded the web with scorchin’ hot photos showing off the perks of dating an NBA owner.

We broke the story … Sterling blasted Stiviano for posting a picture of herself on Instagram posing with Magic Johnson. Sterling told her not to be seen with black people and not to bring them to his games.

Now, we’ve learned … Stiviano is a model in her young-20s … who LOOOVES posting hot bikini pics of herself. She also loved posting pics at Clippers games.

Well, she used to anyway … *No word if her globetrotting lifestyle will come to an end after the fight that ensued with Sterling — but at least, she’ll always have the photos.*


Magic Johnson blasts Donald Sterling

BY BILL PLASCHKE April 26, 2014, 7:15 p.m.

An Instagram photo of Magic Johnson posing with Donald Sterling's female friend V. Stiviano has become a historical document.

After TMZ released unverified audio of Sterling purportedly making racist comments about the photo, it will be the last time anyone will see Johnson at a Clippers game at Staples Center.

"I will never again set foot in Staples Center when the Clippers are playing," Johnson said Saturday afternoon in a phone interview. "I know where I'm not wanted."

Johnson was furious upon hearing the comments, which were aimed at all African Americans, and is calling upon the NBA to take serious action that could include stripping Sterling of his ownership duties.

"Something has to be done, and if that means him losing the team, then that has to happen," Johnson said. "The league has to come down hard and make a statement.''

Sterling dominated the sports world Saturday after a transcript of a tape allegedly had him berating Stiviano for being seen with Johnson.

"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people," the man says in the audio. "Do you have to?"

The man added, "You can sleep with , you can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is to not promote on that [Instagram] … and not to bring them to my games."

Johnson said he was stunned by the ignorance of the statements.

"This is so crazy, he doesn't want African Americans to come to his game, he doesn't want them to be part of anything over there, yet he wants his team of mostly African Americans to win him a championship?" Johnson said. "You don't want us in your building, but you want us to win a title for you?''

Johnson said the comments are particularly hurtful in a diverse city like Los Angeles, as the words betrayed the very people upon whose loyalty Sterling has long depended.

"There are African Americans living in his building, African Americans buying his season tickets, African Americans putting money in his pockets, yet he doesn't want them near him?" Johnson said. "He tells them don't bother to come, he doesn't want them in his arena? In the most diverse city in the United States? How can somebody like that be running a sports team?"

"He tells them don't bother to come, he doesn't want them in his arena? In the most diverse city in the United States? How can somebody like that be running a sports team?"

Johnson feels that Sterling's statements would validate years of racism charges against the owner, a history that Johnson feels should be enough to strip Sterling of his powers.

"I guess he proved Elgin Baylor right when Elgin sued him for this," Johnson said. "Nobody wanted to pay attention to it back then, but now, he showed his true colors, and how can you own a sports team and be like that? Aren't sports the one thing that brings us together?"

(Baylor, the former Clippers general manger, filed a wrongful-termination suit against Sterling several years ago and a jury rejected the claim.)

Johnson said his biggest concern was for the Clippers players and coaches, and he phoned Coach Doc Rivers on Saturday afternoon to offer his support and encourage them to keep playing.

"I feel really bad for them, they are trying to win a championship while, at the same time, most of them are African American men who have to explain this to their children, it's such an awkward position," Johnson said.

Though a one-game boycott in the playoffs might have seemed like a strong message, Johnson said it was the wrong message.

"I would never want them to do that. Please, don't even attempt to do that," he said. "They need to stay focused on their dreams, they worked eight months to put themselves in this position, they have a chance to win a championship, they need to go for it. Guys like me will handle the other stuff."

Johnson said Sterling's basketball investment will take a big hit later, when the Clippers try to attract free agents.

"Right now, in that area, they're done, that's it, you have an owner saying you don't like African Americans, you're trying to recruit players, that's not going to happen," Johnson said.

If nothing else, Donald Sterling has already lost one notable spectator.

[B] Major Obama donor avoids jail time after brutally beating girlfriend

April 25, 2014 by Free Beacon

A high-dollar Obama donor who was caught on video brutally beating his girlfriend got off with 25 hours of community service last week after he pled guilty to domestic battery charges.

CCTV footage caught Gurbaksh Chahal, the CEO of San Francisco tech startup RadiumOne, kicking his girlfriend 117 times, including blows to the head, and trying to smother her with a pillow during a vicious 30-minute assault.

He faced 45 felony charges until the footage was deemed inadmissible. As a result, Chahal has managed to avoid jail time, the Daily Mail reported on Thursday.

According to police reports, Chahal also threated to kill his girlfriend several times.

Silicon Valley executives have come under scrutiny for their political activities in recent weeks. The CEO of web browser company Mozilla was forced to step down after it was revealed that he donated $1,000 to an anti-gay marriage proposition in 2008.

Chahal’s political contributions indicate more liberal sensibilities. He has donated more than $100,000 since 2011, all of which went the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates.

Those contributions include $81,600 to the Democratic National Committee and $5,000 to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

RadiumOne’s board of directors includes Steve Westly, a major Obama donor who came under scrutiny after four companies that he invested in received stimulus subsidies while Westly sat on an advisory board directing the disbursement of stimulus money.

Chahal has visited the White House twice, on Nov. 30, 2011 to see the president, and on Dec. 14, 2012, to see the president and the first lady, according to White House visitor logs.

Chahal also greeted Obama at a dinner in San Francisco in 2012.

It was not immediately clear whether activists who boycotted Mozilla for its former CEO’s opposition to gay marriage would also target RadiumOne and other Chahal startups.

What do Rick Perry, Sean Penn, Sheldon Adelson and Chris Christie have in common?

By*Julie WienerMay 19, 2014 4:44pm

NEW YORK (JTA) — The*last time*New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke at a venue attended by Sheldon Adelson, he alienated the Republican Party mega-donor and other hawkish pro-Israel Jews by referring to the West Bank as “the occupied territories.

”Sunday night at a gala awards program in Manhattan honoring Adelson and hosted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Christie avoided the topic of Israel altogether.

But Sean Penn didn’t.

Held in the cathedral-like Cipriani restaurant, the dinner for Boteach’s*This World: The Values Network*featured an unusual lineup of big-name guests. Among those joining Christie, Penn and Adelson were*Texas Gov. Rick Perry; Nobel laureate*Elie Wiesel;*Israel’s U.S. ambassador,*Ron Dermer;*the Somali-born women’s rights activist and Islam critic*Ayaan Hirsi Ali;*human rights activist and author John Prendergast; Harvard law professor and*Alan Dershowitz;*Jewish philanthropist Michael Steinhardt; and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

The dinner, at $750 per person, seemed to serve a mix of purposes: part awards ceremony, part fundraiser and part pro-Israel rally. It was also very much a celebration of The Values Network and its founder, the well-connected and media-loving Boteach.

First Annual Gathering


2nd Annual "Champion of Jewish Values Award"-New York City, New York

Christie calls for more aggressive foreign policy

Youtube video of Chris Christy


Associated Press*By*STEVE PEOPLESMay 18, 2014 8:52 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Courting powerful Jewish donors for the second time in two months, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Sunday for a more aggressive foreign policy that defends American values abroad — even in "in some very messy, difficult places."

"The rest of the world watches in desperation and hope that America will realize and act upon once again its indispensable place in the world," Christie, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said in a keynote address Sunday at the Champions of Jewish Values International awards gala in New York. "We must lead."

He charged that America must represent the strongest military and economic power, but also "the strongest moral power for what is good and what is right in the world."

The appearance offered Christie a second chance to impress deep-pocketed Jewish donors after stumbling in a recent speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition. Sunday's event also featured Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and major political donor Sheldon Adelson.

The gathering comes as donors — none bigger than Adelson — begin to size up the crowded field of potential Republican presidential candidates ahead of the 2016 contest. While billed as a nonpartisan affair, there were political references throughout the evening.

Asked if he was running for president, Perry told reporters: "I'm being governor for the next nine months. To be real honest with you I don't know what I'm gonna do after that."

Christie did not talk about his own presidential prospects in a speech that offered aggressive rhetoric but few specifics. He didn't mention Israel, but insisted that America's leaders must send "clear and consistent signals" to those nations it supports and those it doesn't while promoting America's values

"We need to stand once again loudly for these values," he said. "And sometimes that's going to mean standing in some very messy, difficult places. Standing long and hard for those things that we believe in."

He added: "We will either lead or disappoint. Those are the only two choices. Unfortunately, today, in my opinion, America is disappointing. But it's not too late."

Christie was seated at the same table as Adelson, who figures to play a prominent role in the selection of the next Republican presidential nominee. It was their second meeting over the last two months.

POLITICO poll shows mounting danger for Democrats

By*ALEXANDER BURNS*| 5/19/14 5:02 AM EDT*Updated: 5/20/14 12:54 AM EDT

President Barack Obama’s job approval slump and voters’ entrenched wariness of his health care law are dogging Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, and Republicans have captured a lead in the areas home to the year’s most competitive races, according to a new POLITICO*poll.

In the congressional districts and states where the 2014 elections will actually be decided, likely voters said they would prefer to vote for a Republican over a Democrat by 7 points, 41 percent to 34 percent. A quarter of voters said they were unsure of their preference.

Among these critical voters, Obama’s job approval is a perilous 40 percent, and nearly half say they favor outright repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Sixty percent say they believe the debate over the law is not over, compared with 39 percent who echo the president’s position and say the ACA debate has effectively concluded.

How Big a Wave?

The big question for 2014: Will we see a GOP ripple … or a tsunami?

By LARRY J. SABATO May 12, 2014

Last week, Republican primary voters passed their first Senate test, producing a North Carolina nominee, Thom Tillis, who is merely*imperfect, not*catastrophic. After the disasters of recent years, national Republicans will happily take it.

The North Carolina result did nothing to change the expectation among*most observers*that the Republicans have a 50-50 or better shot at taking the Senate majority.

It might even have enhanced those odds. The conventional wisdom is reasonable: We know that the president is unpopular, the president’s party typically performs poorly in midterms and the Democrats are overextended on this year’s Senate map.

One of the ways the Republicans could hurt their chances is by running bad candidates in some of these races. Tillis might turn out to be that kind of candidate, but he was clearly the most credible nominee in the primary field.

So where is the Senate right now? Hypothetically, there’s still a wide range of potential outcomes – and all the likeliest ones involve at least some kind of Republican wave, perhaps delivering the magic six-seat gain that would dethrone Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Let’s adopt a mariner’s, or a meteorologist’s, terminology to make sense of the situation. Democrats hope for no wave at all: Something akin to “beach week,” the post-finals getaway that some of my University of Virginia students are celebrating this very instant on the Atlantic seaboard. Beach week for the Democrats, though, is about as likely as the undergrads’ dream of putting off adulthood.

More realistically, Democrats can hope for fearsome-sounding waves that crash loudly but do little structural damage. Republicans, on the other hand, are rooting for an impressive tidal wave, if not a full-fledged historic tsunami.

The following table offers a wide range of Senate outcomes, along with their likelihoods.

New York Times Interactive Election Results 2014

What to Watch: May 20

Key primaries:*Kentucky|*Georgia*|*Oregon

Kentucky, U.S. Senate: Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate leader, is expected to easily beat Matt Bevin, a Tea Party candidate whose once-promising campaign has endured a series of stumbles.

Georgia, U.S. Senate: With a 50 percent threshold to avoid a runoff and a crowded Republican field, the two candidates who garner the most primary votes will likely face off again on July 22. Representative Jack Kingston and David Perdue, a businessman, are the front-runners going into Tuesday's primary.

Oregon, U.S. Senate: Monica Wehby and Jason Conger are the leading Republican candidates. Ms. Wehby is a Portland pediatric neurosurgeon and moderate Republican who is supported by the more mainstream elements of the party, while State Representative Jason Conger is the favorite among conservatives.

U.S. Senate

After a heated primary contest, conservatives claimed victory in Nebraska, where the Senate candidate they preferred won the Republican nomination in a race the Tea Party had made a priority. The nominee, Benjamin E. Sasse — the president of a small college and a former Bush administration official — captured almost half the votes in defeating both of his top challengers, Sid Dinsdale, a wealthy banker, and Shane Osborn, a former state treasurer.

Democrat Party Fears Realized as Young Black Males Defect to GOP


MAY 20, 2014 /*3 COMMENTS /110 VIEWS

Beset by scandals on both the national and statewide level, Democrats find themselves in danger of historic losses in the 2014 midterms, as in addition to the “angry white males” they find themselves facing a new threat, that of the “angry young black male.”

A growing trend of young black males defecting to the GOP has caused fears among Democratic Party officials who have largely ignored the concerns of a constituency that has been loyal for decades.

It is ironic that with the election of the first African-American President, the party that garners roughly 90% of the black vote finds itself in danger of losing the young men of this community, not just for one election cycle, but for generations to come.

Despite its rhetoric and numerous ties to the African-American community, young black black males have become increasingly frustrated with a party they feel promotes policies which emasculate them and offer few opportunities for them to achieve the American dream.

Much of the elation that came from Obama’s historic political achievement turned into an eye-opening experience for many black men, who noticed the gulf between the feel-good rhetoric of Democrats as hollow as inner-city unemployment has grown during the tenure of the first black President.

“I’ll be honest, when Obama announced his candidacy, I was ecstatic.” notes consultant Shermichael Singleton, who as a high-school senior lobbied the local school superintendent to attend an Obama campaign rally in Dallas, TX when first denied by his principal. “It was a great experience. I applauded his speech and him for running,” although this early enthusiasm has since changed, “but I’ve been extremely disappointed.”


Following high school, Singleton attended Morehouse College, where he was instrumental in organizing the first College Republican group at the traditionally black college. He noted that this caused some raised eyebrows, but overall found support for this stance.

“Singleton, we think you’re crazy as hell,” he laughed, “but brother, we support you and glad you’re standing up for what you believe.” Six years into Obama’s presidency, he may be finding more support than he ever thought he might.

Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell's win continues GOP establishment surge

contact the reporters

Incumbent Republicans appeared poised to cruise to victory in key primary elections Tuesday, offering fresh evidence that the party’s establishment wing has successfully neutralized outside conservative groups that have vexed congressional leaders since the rise of the tea party.

In Kentucky, Sen. Mitch McConnell, the party’s leader in the Senate, easily won renomination for a sixth term against a tea-party-backed challenger who hoped to tap into tea party activists’ distrust of GOP leaders in Washington. Shortly after polls closed, the Associated Press declared McConnell the winner.

The Coming Democrat Bloodbath: Don Your HazMat Suits

October 10, 2014 ↔*21 comments

Donald Joy

It was pretty ugly back in 2006. War fatigue and the sharp political divisions over Operation Iraqi Freedom combined with residual fallout over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina. President Bush’s popularity had steadily declined, partly also due to his base’s disgust with him pushing amnesty for illegal aliens. He watched his Grand Old Party get massacred at the polls, losing control of both houses of congress in the mid-term elections that November.

Democrats were elated. The preceding several years of humiliation and defeat were over, and they sensed their continuing resurgence. Sure enough, they parlayed their catbird seat all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, catapulting the most inexperienced, radically far-Left, and probably ineligible candidate ever into the Oval Office, based mainly on the unusually deep tones of his voice and skin, not to mention the “historic” overtones of what he represented — and what he so eloquently misrepresented.

It’s taken the broader electorate quite awhile to come out of the false spell cast on them by Obama, but they mostly have. It’s turned into a rude awakening. His administration is a disaster, with an unending parade of high crimes, abuses, and colossal frauds exposed. His approval ratings have dropped to the correspondingly same low point as Bush’s had in 2006.

That’s why certain political analysts are saying that the mid-term elections about to be held next month are going to be a repeat, in political reverse, of the incumbent slaughter seen in the 2006 mid-terms.

Obama is where Bush was, in terms of how far along for both men in their respective second terms, and his party’s prospects are looking about as bad as things were for the GOP then. One difference is that the Republicans already control the House of Representatives now, but it looks like voters are about to give them back the Senate, with a significant number of seats in the House added on.

In terms of Senate seats, we might not see a numerical landslide. However, what that chamber changing hands would say about people’s trust of Obama and his party, and the ramifications for Obama’s final months in office, will amount to a political holocaust.For conservatives, there is now a chance to undo at least some of the damage done by this criminal administration, and perhaps even undo the mistake of allowing him into the White House in the first place.

The Democrats deserve it. They crammed Obamacare down the country’s throats, despite the fact that a clear a majority of the population did not believe in it nor want it. It was shoved on us as strictly a Democrat-only supported program, with not one single Republican representative or senator voting for it (what kind of ‘representative’ government is that?). The blatant lies that were told by Obama and his friends in their months of loudly arguing for Obamacare have finally been shown to the entire nation for what they are, a gross fraud of proportions unseen in our history; deliberate deception and treachery affecting a sixth of our nation’s economy, harming businesses and millions of people at a time when we are already struggling to make ends meet in an economy limping along on faked numbers.

Then there are the dozens of other abuses and abominations that the Obama presidency and Democrat majority power have brought. If I tried to itemize them here (did I just type ‘itemize’? don’t get me started on the IRS), I’d never stop typing — or, my keyboard would seize up from the vomit and tears cascading down on it.

Still, no assessment of the coming Democrat bloodbath would be adequate without at least touching on the double-apocalyptic implications of the ongoing ISIS and Ebola catastrophes.

Barack Obama has been shown to be so derelict in his job, ignoring all kinds of urgent intelligence and advice about ISIS from wise and experienced people for months and even years on end, until backed into an impossible situation — impossible chiefly because we must somehow stumble on as a country without a real Commander-in-Chief. Instead, we have an anti-American interloper, a sneering saboteur who only clogs up the office while brashly refusing to get out of the way while blaming others for his failures, even as he reluctantly gives a somber speech and belatedly takes token action. The few allies we have left don’t trust us anymore, and the enemy scoffs at us while freely recruiting from among the Muslim segment of our population and lopping off the heads of our citizens, here and abroad, right in front of our faces.

Meanwhile, a few short years after the Obama administration rejected enhanced quarantine and travel restrictions specifically designed by previous CDC staff to deal with threats posed by the deadly Ebola virus, Obama (who himself is now being called “the African virus”) and his present flunkies refuse to even consider putting prudent flight bans in place, even now that Ebola is being brought over on crowded planes.

Obama and his remaining supporters seem to think that the best way to approach the Ebola threat is to increase our contact with it, instead of reducing contact with it. They are actually saying and doing that!

Banning commercial flights into and from Ebola-stricken countries would not preclude charter and military aircraft from transporting critical aid shipments and willing personnel to the hot zones to assist with treating and controlling the spread of Ebola.

Alas, such sane and reasonable safety measures are beyond the ken of ideologically malevolent agents such as the bug-chaser Obama, who actually relishes the idea of America being brought down a notch or three or however many, to be closer on par with his father’s continent.

Some conspiracy-theory types have speculated that Obama’s refusal to protect our homeland’s population from the influx of Ebola is a strategic ploy to protect his party from an impending massacre at the voting booths — by allowing Ebola to take hold and spread here on our shores, the resulting panic and public health threat (a national emergency if there ever was one) would give him cause to suspend the mid-term elections, lest people gathered in crowds at polling places increase the chance of spreading the deadly virus.

That theory would only somewhat go against the CDC’s own highly dubious claim that Ebola is only transmitted by bodily fluids, but can we really put a scheme like that past this administration? For that matter, if Ebola does start spreading rapidly here, and regardless of untrustworthy official proclamations, would you want to go into crowded public places? Maybe you’d risk your life to go vote at some neighborhood school cafeteria crammed with hundreds or thousands of others milling in and out throughout the day and evening, to occupy the same cramped booths marking and casting their ballots, but many people wouldn’t.*

Obama and his Democrats can count on that scenario to at least reduce turnout and alter the outcome of elections.

Either way, there will be blood. Best to shield ourselves from the splatter. Oh, and if you’re white and live in or around St. Louis, I suggest Kevlar too.



Moderate Republicans Abandon Pat Roberts, Saying He's Abandoned Them

Former state Sen. Audrey Langworthy received the fundraising letter from Republican incumbent Pat Roberts last November.

Among other things, Roberts called for the resignation of Kathleen Sebelius, then Health and Human Services Secretary, who was under fire for the botched roll-out of the Obamacare website.

Republicans Just Got Some Really Bad News In One Of The Reddest Of Red States

A few weeks after the national Republican Party moved in to revamp the campaign and begin an ad blitz aimed at saving incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts' job, a new poll shows him facing more of an uphill battle than ever against independent businessman Greg Orman.

The poll,*from NBC News and Marist College, finds Orman leading Roberts 48-38 among likely voters. The NBC/Marist survey is better news for Orman than other recent polls, which have*shown him with significant but less substantial single-digit leads.

Inside the Democrats' Plan to Save Arkansas—and the Senate

MOLLY BALLAUG 24 2014, 7:00 AM

PINE BLUFF, Arkansas—No sign announces the purpose of this little storefront, squeezed between a Bestway Rent to Own and a Rent-a-Center in a dilapidated shopping center. But the words hand-lettered in black and red marker on three pieces of paper taped to the window—"Register to Vote Here"—and a cluster of placards for candidates give it away: It is a Democratic Party field office.

Democrats aren't advertising this office and 39 others like it that are scattered around Arkansas—in fact, their locations are a closely guarded secret. When I visited last week, having tracked it down through creative public-records sleuthing, I took Chita Collins, the field organizer on duty there, by surprise. But I wanted to see the evidence of what Democrats have been claiming they're building in states like this one, and what could be crucial to their uphill quest to keep the Senate: an Obama-style community-organizing effort of unprecedented scale for a non-presidential election.

Senate's Future Likely Hinges on These Three Races

The Senate most plausibly turns on the survival of Alaska's Begich, Colorado's Udall, and the outcome of the open contest in Iowa between Braley and Ernst.


October 6, 2014*With just 28 days to go until Election Day, the U.S. Senate picture looks remarkably stable—but there is still a great deal of uncertainty.

The number of seats in play is either 11 or 12, depending on whether or not you believe that the contest in Minnesota between Democratic incumbent Al Franken and GOP challenger Mike McFadden has tightened up. We have begun to see some polls that show the race now in mid-to-high single digits; it could just be that Republicans are coming home, thus producing the normal closure you often see, or it could be that it is in fact growing more competitive.

Three Democratic open seats are goners: Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia. Democrats' three most endangered incumbents still are in extremely challenging races. However, all of them—Mark Begich in Alaska, Mark Pryor in Arkansas, and Louisiana's Mary Landrieu—are still absolutely alive and in the hunt for victory. The hope and prayer for Democrats is that one of these incumbents will survive, which would mean that Republicans would have to then win at least one seat in a "purple" or "light blue" state. Of these three races, Pryor's challenge looks to be the toughest and least promising for Democrats. Landrieu's is far from hopeless, but it would grow much more difficult if, as expected, the race moves to a Dec. 6 runoff with GOP Rep. Bill Cassidy. If there is a survivor in this trio, it is most likely to be Begich, though his race is extremely close and his chances of winning at this point are no better than a coin flip. The analogy for these three is that even Olympic swimmers have a tough time if the undertow is too bad, and that might well be the case here.

Of the three endangered GOP-held seats, Kentucky's Mitch McConnell and David Perdue in Georgia's open-seat*race are both holding modest but stable leads over their Democratic rivals. In Kentucky, it appears that the combination of an incumbent running a pitch-perfect campaign and the cumulative weight of President Obama's unpopularity in the state with the "war on coal" is simply too heavy a millstone for Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. In Georgia, Perdue continues to hold a small lead, but if no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote plus one, then the race moves to a Jan. 6 runoff. It is the third seat, where Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas*is seeking a fourth term, that is proving very problematic for Republicans. Assuming Republicans lose Kansas, they would need to win a purple or light-blue seat. If, for example, Kansas is lost, and one of the three Democratic incumbents survives, it means Republicans would need to win*two*purple or light-blue states. This assumes that Kansas independent Greg Orman would caucus with Democrats should he win, which isn't certain (reelection in 2020 might be a consideration).

This brings us to the last five, or if you include Minnesota, six Senate contests, and to the question: Will Republicans need one seat because Begich, Landrieu, or Pryor survives, or because McConnell, Perdue, or (far more likely) Roberts loses? Or, will the GOP need two seats if both of these scenarios occur?

Democrats still seem to hold small but steady leads in New Hampshire (Sen. Jeanne Shaheen) and North Carolina (Sen. Kay Hagan), as well as in the open-seat race in Michigan. Of course, any of these candidates could still lose, but at least now we can say that such a loss appears less likely. Again, whether Minnesota's Franken belongs in this column remains unclear.

This could well mean that the Senate most plausibly turns on the survival of Alaska's Begich, Colorado's Democratic incumbent Mark Udall, and the outcome of the open contest in Iowa between Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley and GOP state Sen. Joni Ernst. Yes, there are a myriad of various combinations for Democrats to hold their losses of seats to five or less, or for Republicans to gain six or more, but I think these three races appear to be the most pivotal. As I have been saying since at least July, I would put a GOP majority occurring at about a 60 percent chance.

'With Jews We Lose' Candidate Robert Ransdell in His Own Words

By Sigal Samuel and Anne Cohen

Published Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 3:00 pm

“With Jews We Lose”? No, this isn’t a poster from Nazi Germany. It’s a campaign placard currently on view in Kentucky, where write-in candidate Robert Ransdell is running for U.S. Senate. His party, The White Guard, “seeks to show White people the facts regarding the Jewish role in America’s decline as well as highlight the destructive effects that multiculturalism, diversity, and political correctness have had on this country.” (He details his whole platform in*this incredibly rambly video.)

We here at the “Jew Media,” as Ransdell calls it, had a few questions about his views. And so we emailed him. To our surprise, he answered back. Highlights of the interview, which has been edited for style and length, include: his belief that Christian Zionists should relocate to Israel, that no Jews are white, and that there’s only one group out there more arrogant than members of the tribe.Ladies and gentlemen, Robert Ransdell in his own words:

) Nowadays, many American Jews consider themselves white. Why don’t you share that view?

I don’t share that view because Jews themselves don’t share that view, it is absurd and a fantasy that Jews in America do not make a distinction between Jews and Whites, I won’t even bother quoting the numerous statements made by Jews, past and present, that affirm this fact. Most Whites falsely see Jews as White because they are never given an in depth and accurate portrayal of Jewish solidarity, unity, and identity which would go to show, again through the actions and statements of Jews, through the prolific number of Jewish interests organizations, that Jews regard themselves as what they are, a separate group.

2) You propose to end all aid to Israel. What would you say to white Christian Zionists who lobby in favor of continued support?

Anyone, whether they be Jews or non-Jews, who support a foreign nation over America should be encouraged to leave this nation and take up residence there, whether it be Israel or any other nation. Most Jews put the interests of Israel over America due to racial and religious loyalty to their fellow Jews. Religious conviction leads Christian Zionists to support Israel, except that is for the leaders of this group of people, people like John Hagee, who do it for personal gain. I am not anti-Christian, but those Christians who put Israel over America due to their religious beliefs also are not people that should stay in America, they should relocate to Israel, if the Jews there will have them.

Maybe enough is finally enough in St. Louis County as Black Democrats endorse White Republican

Posted by*Coach Collins

Beware of the low flying pigs as you watch hell freeze over; a group of Black Democrats in St. Louis County has endorsed White Republican Rick Stream in his race for County Executive.

The group known as the Fannie Lou Hamer Coalition (FLHC), named for the Voting Rights giant who worked to give Blacks the right to vote in Mississippi during the summer of 1965, has finally awakened to the fact that Democrats do not care about them and never have.* They point to the continuing failure of the county’s schools to educate Black children and the Democrat’s shameless pandering and agitation in Ferguson since the shooting of a Black would be cop killer. **

2014 Midterm Elections a Republican Stampede


While experts predicted a good night for Republicans, the 2014 Midterm Elections turned out to be a stampede exceeding even the most optimistic hopes of conservatives. In addition to taking control of the US Senate and increasing its majority in the House of Representatives, Governors mansions and State Legislatures across the country, Republicans established themselves as a legitimate “big tent party” with ground-breaking firsts from coast to coast.

The GOP gained majority control of the US Senate by sweeping close races through the country, holding a 52-45 advantage as of press time, with tight contests in Alaska and Virginia still to be decided. Voters in Louisiana will return to the polls in early December to settle a run off between Republican challenger Bill Cassidy and incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu. Landrieu captured 42 percent of the vote, compared to Cassidy’s 41 percent. The GOP vote was split as challengers Rob Maness and Thomas Clements combined for more than 14 percent of the vote, denying Cassidy of an expected victory and forcing a run off with Landrieu.


It was a big night for “firsts” as a diverse group of Republican candidates rode a conservative wave to victory. The night began with Tim Scott (R-SC) securing the first statewide win in South Carolina for*an African-American candidate since Reconstruction as he won his Senatorial contest against Democrat Joyce Dickerson. Scott, who was appointed to the US Senate now owns the seat outright, as he captured 61 percent of the vote, even out doing long-time Republican stalwart Lindsey Graham, who tallied 54.5 percent of the vote in his re-election effort. Scott will return to Washington DC under his own steam and continues to be a rising GOP star, with solid support from Tea Party conservatives.


Mia Love from Utah scored a victory in the 4th Congressional District, pulling away late to defeat Democratic Party opponent Doug Owens 50 percent to 46 percent to become her state’s first African-American Representative and the first black female Congresswoman from the GOP. The Brooklyn-born Love gained prominence within party ranks with a stirring speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention and propelled herself to victory two years after losing in her first attempt.


Republican youth was also served, as 30 year-old Elise Stefanik became the youngest female to ever capture a seat for the House of Representatives in our nation’s history. In capturing New York’s 21st Congressional District, Stefanik will be the youngest elected Republican in Washington, but will come in with national attention given her historic victory. With 55 percent of the vote, she easily outdistanced Aaron Wolf of the Democratic Party, who garnered 33 percent of the vote, and Green Party hopeful Matthew Funicello who earned a respectable 11 percent of the vote.

The tone for the 2014 midterm elections was set early Tuesday with the announcement that Republic Leader Mitch McConnell soundly defeated Democrat challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, 56 to 40 percent. Many national pundits counted this as a toss-up race, and McConnell’s comfortable margin of victory served as an omen of things to come, as GOP rattled off victories as early returns began coming in. Any hopes Democrats had of retaining their Senate majority seemed to be dashed when it was announced that Cory Gardner unseated Democratic Party incumbent Mark Udall in Colorado. Gardner defeated Udall with 50 percent of the vote, compared to the incumbent Senator’s 44 percent.

A Republican Party takeover of the Senate became assured when tight races in Kansas and North Carolina were officially called for the GOP. In Kansas, Republican incumbent Pat Roberts fended off the challenge of left-leaning independent candidate Greg Orman, widely assumed to caucus with Democrats had he won. As in Kentucky, the relative ease of Roberts’ victory confounded analysts and further soured Democrat hopes, as the incumbent Republican easily outdistanced Orman, 53-42 percent. In North Carolina, a neck and neck race between Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan and GOP challenger Thom Tillis went to the wire, with the Republican upstart pulling away at the end to win 48.9 percent of the vote, compared with Hagan’s 47.2 percent. The win seemed to seal the doom of Democrats in the Tar Heel state, who hoped to hold the seat after having lost control of the state legislature over the past two election cycles.

While even Democratic Party strategies conceded the odds of holding on to the Senate were slim, many expressed optimism that the party would make gains in Gubernatorial races across the nation. With four closely contested races still in doubt, Republicans also gained on this front as well. Buoyed by key upsets in Democrat strongholds of Illinois and Massachusetts, the GOP holds a 31-15 edge in Governor seats. In Illinois, businessman Bruce Rauner stampeded to victory over Democrat incumbent Pat Quin, with an impressive 50-45 percent victory over Quin. While early returns showed the incumbent with comfortable leads, Rauner began chipping into the advantage with each reported precinct and easily defeated the sitting Governor. It was a similar story in left-leaning Massachusetts, *with Republican Charlie Baker overcoming Democrat Martha Coakley in a race*that seemed an impossibility for the GOP only months ago. Coakley joins 2012 GOP*Presidential nominee Mitt Romney as Republicans who were able to overcome a strong statewide Democrat registration advantage to take control of the state’s highest office.

Democrats were able to re-take the Governors mansion in Pennsylvania, as Tom Wolf was able to defeat Republican Tom Corbett, but this was not enough to overcome additional GOP takeovers in Arkansas and Maryland. In Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson was able to easily defeat Democrat hopeful Mike Ross, who was attempting to succeed fellow Democrat Mike Beebe. Ross turned out to be an inferior candidate however, as Hutchinson cruised to a comfortable 14 percent victory, 55-41 percent. The evening’s biggest surprise may have been in Maryland, as Republican Larry Hogan shocked the political prognosticators*with a stirring 54-44 percent upset over Democrat Anthony Brown. In the race to replace outgoing Democratic Party Governor and 2016 Presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley, Hogan overcame a better financed Brown to score the stunning victory in this heavily Democratic state. Democrats in Florida also tasted defeat, as Republican incumbent Rick Scott was able to outlast party-switching former Governor Charlie Crist to hold onto his seat and virtually end the political career of Crist, who hoped a switch to the Democratic Party would give him new life and hopes at a Presidential bid.

Democrat tensions will go late into the morning as votes are still being tallied in too-close-to-call races in Colorado and Connecticut, as well as late returns from Alaska. With large GOP margins among Governors, and expected gains on the state legislature level, Republicans stand poised to have sufficient numbers to call for a Constitutional Convention, by invoking Article V of the US Constitution.


The Republican stamped of the 2014 Midterm Elections could also rightfully be dubbed “Big Tent Tuesday” as in addition to aforementioned GOP breakthroughs, two Hispanic Republican Governors cruised to victory in Western contests. Republicans Susana Martinez of New Mexico and Nevada’s Brian Sandoval easily withstood challenged from their Democratic opponents, as voters in the state rewarded both with another term by comfortable margins. Indian-American Republican Governor Nikki Haley enhanced her position as a potential 2016 Vice Presidential nominee with an impressive re-election win in South Carolina. In another high-profile Gubernatorial race, Republican Greg Abbott trounced national Democratic Party darling Wendy Davis in the race to succeed Texas Governor Rick Perry. Davis, dubbed “Abortion Barbie” by her critics, was handily defeated by Abbott, who garnered 60 percent of the vote. National Democrats embraced the telegenic Davis as a symbol for their efforts to “turn Texas blue” but were re-soundly turned away by voters seemingly satisfied with the impressive economic progress the state has made Republican leadership.

While Tuesday’s midterm election results have Republicans in high spirits, they serve as a sobering rebuke for Democrats at every level of government. Nationwide losses on local, state and national levels leave the party in disarray for President Obama’s final two years in office and with lingering questions entering the 2016 Presidential contests. Tonight’s defeat seem to signal a death-knell for congressional leaders Harry Reid in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House. For Pelosi, this is her third consecutive defeat at the hands of the GOP, as her attempt to reclaim the speaker’s gavel she obtained in 2006 again came up short. Despite assurances to party faithful that Democrats would pick up House seats, as of press time Republicans had gained a net of 12 seats with only a handful of close races yet to be decided, most of which are in Democrat-held districts.

Questions abound throughout Washington DC if either Pelosi or Reid will be able to sustain such embarrassing losses for the party and retain their positions of power. Critics on both the left and right have*complained that the Reid-Pelosi leadership team has led the party on a downward spiral, relying on divisive rhetoric and unable to formulate an effective and innovative legislative agenda to reclaim confidence from the American people.

Democrats were unable to overcome President Obama’s sagging approval ratings and lacked a cohesive message to voters. While Republicans made gains among traditionally Democrat-leaning voters, including Latino, African-American, female, gay and younger voters, Democrats seemed a stale party filled with confusion, apprehension and unable to rally enthusiasm even among its most loyal of constituents. As one black voter in California put it, “you can’t ignore us, and actually make our lives worse, for six years and then come in at the last week like an ex-lover coming by at midnight for a bootie-call and expect us to go flocking to the polls for you.”

In one of the nation’s more closely followed House races, openly gay Republican challenger Carl DeMaio appears to have won by the*slimmest of margins*against incumbent Representative*Scott Peters in California’s 52nd Congressional District covering parts of*San Diego. DeMaio, a fiscal conservative who was subject of an organized smear campaign by Democrats who made light of his sexual preference, holds a*nail-thin edge over Peters, one of the richest men in Congress, with 72,431 votes compared with 71,679*for the incumbent with all*precincts reporting.

If there is a lesson to be learned tonight for Democrats, it’s that while yes, the American people desire change, woe be to the party or politician who attempts to “fundamentally transform” the nation we love and that, even acknowledging its problems, are confident can provide a pathway to the realization of our goals. The Republican stampede in the 2014 Midterm Elections are a combination of a judgement on big government liberalism which has failed to deliver on its promises, as well as the success of Republican-led states, whose low tax and pro-growth policies have produced far more vibrant job creation and income increases for their residents, as opposed to stagnant economies and rising poverty in Democrat ruled states.

Ted Cruz/Dick Cheney 2016???



Cruz is in; what's Chris Christie waiting for?

Bob Jordan, Asbury Park (N.J.) Press19 hours agoFacebookTwitterGoogle Plusmore

TRENTON, N.J. — If the race is to the swiftest, then campaign plans to be announced by U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas makes him a winner over Gov. Chris Christie and about a dozen other potential Republican presidential candidates.

But Christie and others in reality*have plenty of time to make up ground*if Cruz as expected on Monday becomes the first GOP 2016 candidate to commit to the race, political analyst Larry Sabato said Sunday.

"Getting in first is an initial boost, but not a long-lasting one,'' said Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. "There are no hard and fast rules about this and I don't think the announcement date makes much of a difference in the long run.''

Sean Penn ‘thanks’ George Bush, Dick Cheney for ‘inventing’ Islamic State

Sean Penn*sarcastically thanked former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney Wednesday night for “inventing” the Islamic State terror group that is wreaking havoc across the Middle East.

“You mentioned Dick Cheney, this kind of, you know, embittered bacteria of humanity,”*the actor told*TBS talk show host*Conan O'Brien. “It’s always a surprise to me to remember that, through bionic technology and so on, this guy’s still here.”

“These are the guys — he and President Bush and some others — who invented Daesh, or ISIS,”*Mr. Penn*said, using the Arabic name and the acronym commonly used for the terror group.

“I mean, they really are that which created it,” he said without elaborating further. “So, I wanted to give him a shout out. Thanks for that.

“We have people like Harvey Milk, who were beautiful, brilliant, impactful guys,” he continued. “And then you’ve got the Cheneys. This is just me musing.”

The actor was on “Conan” promoting his new film “The Gunman,” which opens Friday.

The Pentagon has declassified a document that was once labeled “top-secret,” which goes into sophisticated detail about Israel’s nuclear weapons program.*The document was released quietly just prior to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to a joint session of Congress.

Israel has never officially confirmed or denied the existence of a nuclear weapon’s program within its borders.

The Pentagon*declassified sections covering*Israel’s nuclear program, but “kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document,”Israel National Newsreported.

The 386-page top-secret memo, titled, “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations,” goes into great detail about how Israel turned into a nuclear power in the 1970s and 80s.

As far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960,” the report assesses.

The report was written by the Institute for Defense Analysis in 1987, which was federally funded and contracted by the Pentagon.

Israel is “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level,” the report states.

The report*commendsthat the Israelis found “ingeniously clever” solutions to solve its problems in advancing the nuclear program, largely due to the “ingenious Israeli inventions” at a “key research and development laboratory in Israel.”

The Pentagon declassified the document after Grant Smith, an activist who heads a radical anti-Israel group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request, according to reports.

Smith’s Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy organizes an anti-Israel conference each year in Washington, D.C. Last year, the*conferencefeatured speakers from anti-Semitic and pro-Islamist publications. During the Q & A session, a speaker openly called for education about*the supposed “Zionist-Nazi collaboration” during the Holocaust, while another endorsed the possibility that “Israel had a hand in 9/11.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton-And the "Third Wave" over AmeriKa-Left, Right,--->Communism


Democrats In Drag — Steve Farrell

By Steve Farrell

Democrats In Drag, Foreword

When I began this project a decade ago, I recognized the title I chose, “Democrats in Drag,” would be provocative and controversial, offensive and humorous, hated and praised, cursed and hallelujahed. I also knew it was marketable. Yet the bottom line is the title was chosen because it reflected an issue I felt passionately about, namely: The Republican Party speaks conservative, but legislates liberal, gets all dressed up for church, but drives down to the brothel.

If there ever was any truth to the claim that the Republican Party was conservative, constitutionally based, and morally sound, its 1990’s flying leap into the arms of Progressive Government and the Third Way, and it’s follow on act in the 21st Century with Compassionate Conservatism, insured that honest men would soon come to believe otherwise. Yesterday’s defenders of the Republic are today’s champions of the New World Order and the corporations that figure to cash in most on the megalomaniacal prize.

In claiming this, I am not indicting the whole crew of Republicans, or Democrats for that matter, as co-conspirators against our country, nor making a case for such—though conspiracies always have and always will exist whenever power and men cross paths. Jefferson and Madison’s instructive that “men are not angels” should be warning enough that almost all men, whether Republican, Democrat, or Independent, given their day in power, thirst for more, and sad to say more than a few betray their country along the way. But that is not my aim, I write about principles, and in this case an expose on the principles of Compassionate Conservatism (or Centre Right/Conservative Futurist/Third Way) as the perfect answer for the grasping politician as well as the political revolutionary, for the Democrat as well as the Republican—for it is the ‘safe’ middle ground, both conservative and progressive, communist and capitalist, moral and amoral, tolerant and intolerant, friend of local government and friend of the United Nations. It is everything and anything. It is never what it seems to be and always what it seems to be. It is the master of double-talk and the partner of deceit. And, as such, come election time, it is wisdom’s path, so say the campaign agencies, for both the stouthearted statesmen and the pussilaneous panderer to get elected.

Would to high heaven that such a safe middle ground was Wisdom’s path; but I suspect, and I feel you will as well, that the path is more like Marx and Lenin’s, Mao’s and Keynes, then Wisdom’s.

Throughout this series, I will initially use the term Third Way and later, Compassionate Conservative when referring to this philosophy, and I do this knowing full well that the fascist cat is out of the bag, thanks to U.S. President Bill Clinton calling it his own in 1999. By so doing, President Clinton put on ‘red alert’ a few conservative writers and commentators (this one included) who immediately and effectively blew the whistle, loud and clear, on what The Third Way was—and what it was not.

On the other hand, this fascist cat only really came out for a brief flash and then scurried back whence it came. The reason was that with few exceptions, blind partisanship and hatred for Bill Clinton were the chief motivating factors for the investigation into the Third Way, not purist interest, not a desire for an honest probe into Third Way politics on both sides of the political aisle. With Mr. Clinton gone, the prevailing wind blasts in our ears, ‘Who cares!’

But we should care, all of us.

Political insiders know full well that Clinton’s torrid romance with the Third Way was preceded by a far more lengthy and scandalous affaire d’amour between Republican Party conservative icon Newt Gingrich and Third Way spokesman Alvin Toffler. Had the red alert been truly sounded by dyed-in-the-wool conservatives, then the Contract With America, the Republican Revolution, and the party’s ‘efforts’ to squelch Mr. Clinton’s radicalism would have been put under the microscope too, and the party and our country might now be on a more constitutional course.

As it is, Bill Clinton and Republican opposition to Bill Clinton only gave the Third Way what was a short-lived bad public name. That is all. Meanwhile, the Third Way’s compromising, anti-constitutional agenda goes forward on schedule. Today its advocates left and right have only switched designations, calling themselves progressives, centrists, right-of-center centrists, left-of-center centrists, bipartisans, defenders of ‘civil society,’ believers in ‘good governance,’ and most recent and popular of all, ‘compassionate conservatives.’ A few, mostly in Europe and in the Democratic Party’s Progressive Policy Institute, still cling to a public confession of faith in that halfway house between communism and capitalism, the Third Way.

But we should not overly concern ourselves with this or that name of the day. Better we focus on defining just what is the Third Way, what is Compassionate Conservatism, so that having done so we can more readily uncover it no matter how the pretenders are dressed—whether as Pink Donkeys or Blue Elephants

That is the hope of this series: that politicians, parties and political movements within those parties be known for what they are and not what they appear to be, so that with blind partisanship set aside, our Constitution, our rights and our way of life may advance, not retreat in the face of the gathering storm.

Part 2

Democrats In Drag, Part 1, “Technology, Sovereignty, and the Third Wave,” raised a justifiable flap about the hush-hush history of that Tsunami for political and sociological change called the Third Wave or the Third Way. It presented the first layer of evidence that the 1990’s famously popular Third Way, like its 1999-2008 twin sister Compassionate Conservatism, emerged like a creature in hiding from the socialist badlands of communism and fascism.

Among the plotters who laid the foundation for this modern mistake were Plato in his manifesto for a pre-Christian communist tyranny, “The Republic”; Karl Marx in his 19th century “Communist Manifesto” and sundry other works; and Adolf Hitler and his 20th century plunge into fascism which he deified, Third Way-like, as a safe alternative between the two extremes of communism and capitalism.

It’s a dark account, and assuredly Third Way/Compassionate Conservative proponents would be hard pressed to admit the connection. But then, who would? Socialism, communism and fascism are deservedly four-letter words in anyone’s common sense and political vocabulary. So, roughly every decade, in some cases every few months, their supporters are forced to search through the archives for a new name for old tyranny.

The Third Way just happened to be the next in line.

Disturbingly, consideration of the “progressive” Third Way presents not only links to the old and the foul, but to the new and the acceptable. It also introduces the unsettling possibility that the fall of communism and socialism were less the result of the victory of capitalism or Reaganism and more a sign of communist confidence that the West was dumbed-down and disarmed, ripe and readied for the long ago predicted “comfortable merger” under the United Nations.

The Third Way, its twin, Compassionate Conservatism, and the establishment engine which drives them, want this merger, and want also a removal of governmental gridlock in favor of a fast track radical new approach to government; one fit for a high-tech., swift-paced, rapidly changing world.

Overview of the Third Wave

December 9, 2011

Kelleigh Nelson wrote a two part hit article on Newt Gingrich entitled “The Phony Right-Wing & Who is Selling Us Down the River? – Newt Gingrich: Part One & Two”.

Nelson begins Part 1 by describing Newt’s ten years in Congress as a closet communist by comparing Newt’s Congressional agenda to various Marxist ideologies. At this point Nelson calls Newt a Neocon. Evidently she considers Neocons as closet Communists because many of them actually came from a Communist background. The problem with her closet Communist assessment is that Neocons that were former Leftist Liberals abandoned Communism recognizing the utter failure of the Marxist based ideology. My perspective on Neoconservatism is that they are people that support Conservative values domestically and American Exceptionalism in relation to Foreign Policy and Foreign Relations. It is the less government – more government paradox. Neocons have rejected Big Brother control of the populace hence the less government domestically. Neocons see two objectives that need to be sustained (yes I know “sustained” is an evil word among Conspiracy Theorists). One objective is to promote any policy that protects American sovereignty as the world’s exceptionally best nation. The second objective is to spread American values internationally at all costs to promote a world that is more for us than against us. I realize these two objectives I have thought up are quite subjective and I am certain that intellectual Neocons could list quite a number of specifics; nonetheless in a nutshell I believe this is an easy to comprehend summary of Neoconservatism. Both objectives lean toward big government to maintain American Exceptionalism. Libertarians and Paleocons (i.e. more traditional Conservatives) have a problem with big government of any kind.

Is Toffler a Communist? A Free Republic blogger quotes a New American article in which Toffler’s thoughts run like this:

In 1994, Gingrich described himself as "a conservative futurist". He said that those who were trying to define him should look no farther than The Third Wave, a 1980 book written by Alvin Toffler. The book describes our society as entering a post-industrial phase in which abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, and divorce are perfectly normal, even virtuous. Toffler penned a letter to America's "founding parents," in which he said: "The system of government you fashioned, including the principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented---a democracy for the 21st century." He went on to describe our constitutional system as one that "served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced."

How foreign donations to Clinton Foundation add up to baggage for Hillary (+video)

Questions about the influence of foreign donations are legitimate and Hillary Clinton needs to address them forthrightly or she may find that they don't go away.

By Doug Mataconis, Voices contributor APRIL 20, 2015

A book that isn’t set to be released for another two weeks is already starting to shake up the presidential campaign, and could pose problems for Hillary Clinton going forward:



Clinton Foundation to keep accepting donations from foreign governments

Published April 16, 2015FoxNews.com

The Clinton Foundation said late Wednesday that it will continue to accept donations from foreign governments during Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, despite concerns that such gifts will create a conflict of interest for the Democratic front-runner.

The foundation's board said that donations directly to the foundation would only be allowed from six governments — Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom. However, other governments could continue to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), a subsidiary program that encourages donors to match contributions from others to tackle international problems without direct donations to the charity.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, you should be troubled by the fact that Hillary Clinton in each campaign has remade herself fundamentally, adopting a new persona each time in an effort to capture the changing electorate. True, all candidates hone their messages, but Hillary’s transformations are radical make-overs. Given the number of iterations of Hillary Clinton over the years, we really should ask: Will the real Hillary Clinton please stand up?

Since leaving the White House as First Lady, Hillary has amassed a very large fortune. Hillary’s world is far different from the typical American’s. That would not be a problem were she to own up to that fact, but she chooses to obscure that reality. Consider, by contrast, the Kennedys. Democrats Jack, Robert, and Ted never hid their family’s opulence and, instead, actually harbored intellectual values and ran for office predicated on well-defined liberal values. While I do not agree with the Kennedy’s political creed, I nevertheless respect them for having one that was intellectually developed and not bereft of foundational substance. The same cannot be said for Hillary. There is no well-developed intellectual foundation for each of Hillary’s positions, no explanation of her core beliefs and how her public service has been consistent in its advancement of those core beliefs.

Hillary is a liberal Democrat, but she has always avoided any clear articulation of her policy positions on a host of key issues. Her present run endeavors to make her out to be more of a centrist than she has been in the past. She has a very narrow group of elites advising her, but she is desperately trying to fashion herself as a populist, as every man, fully appreciative of what it is like to work a 9 to 5 job for a minimum wage. She feigns familiarity with the common struggles of those in the service industry, who work in fast food restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores, hotels and shopping malls, but her lifestyle is that of a jet setter and her society is with national and international figures.

This duplicity is rather transparent, so one wonders why she thinks the public so fickle or ignorant that it will buy into her latest remake. There is in the latest remake a rather disturbing condescension. By not projecting an image of herself that is, well, herself, and by choosing instead to feign fraternity (sorority?) with the common man, Hillary is in fact preying upon what she perceives to be the ignorance of those who receive her. In other words, she thinks the average Joe and Josephine will accept her as a populist with intimate knowledge of their needs and interests and not view her as an elitist out of touch with their daily travails.


The fact is, however, virtually every Joe and Josephine knows Hillary is not at all like them. She comes from privilege, having been First Lady and having amassed a fortune since the old days in the Arkansas Governor’s mansion with Bill. There is nothing wrong with wealth in a capitalist society, of course, unless you think (as Hillary does) that capitalist society is itself evil and that government should divide the nation based on income, redistributing it from those who have to those who have not. The Robin Hood argument (take from the rich and give to the poor) has a rather hollow ring to it when you discover that Robin Hood is as wealthy as King Richard the Lionheart. Aware of that, Hillary tones down the jewelry, eats a burger and fries, and shops at J.C. Penny’s for campaign season.

Because her campaign aims to encourage Middle Class and poor Americans to think of her as one of them, her current remake aims to cast her as a soccer mom, a kind matron from the neighborhood, a person like you, and not a rich former First Lady whose shoe collection and wardrobe is worth more than your annual salary. If she were to represent herself as she truly is, and bring out the expensive jewelry, clothes, cars, and dining preferences, she fears that the average American would have a hard time accepting that she is sincere. So, she painfully leaves the private jet and travels about the country in a van. She abandons her favorite dining preferences and pops up with small groups of every day folks, rubbing elbows, eating rubbery chicken, and trying to engage in small talk. Why shouldn’t we be disgusted with a phoney? The Kennedy approach is far better. They never denied their wealth, never gave up the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port in favor of a one bedroom condo in Spanish Harlem, never eschewed Catholicism despite public attacks. They did the hard thing. They tried to convince people that they were right. Hillary is not of that stature. She tries to persuade you that her way of thinking is like ours, that she is one of us.

She does not appreciate the dangers associated with duplicity in politics because, so far, she has gotten away with it. But for a few embarrassing moments, she has found redefinition far easier than resolute defense of core beliefs. That is not especially difficult for her, because, truth be told, she really does not think there are any immutable truths or core beliefs incapable of being modified or tweeked for political advantage.

Her willingness to remake herself again and again presents a major problem in the general election. Her campaign is likely to be one of pronounced contrasts, not with others per se but with herself. I can see opponents running split screen images of her in campaign ads, wherein on one side of the screen she makes pronouncements from moments in her long political career that conflict with her pronouncements today. The contrasts between the Hillary of yesterday and the Hillary of today will likely be numerous and profound. She cannot today praise unreservedly the politically unpopular Obamacare but she did so in the past and, indeed, she advocated an even more intrusive and oppressive version of it in the form of a single payer socialized government health care system. She cannot be the champion of Obama’s foreign policy which she as Secretary of State helped create, a foreign policy that is largely incomprehensible, because a clear majority of the American people reject that foreign policy as weak, fickle, and harmful to American interests around the world. She cannot advocate transparency in government today when she herself has kept from congressional inquiry key facts and circumstances surrounding the Benghazi tragedy and her own private/public emails. She cannot portray herself as truly compassionate, one whose every effort is that of humanitarianism, given the cavalier manner in which she rejected pleas for help from the U.S. embassy in Benghazi or the horrible mistreatment she caused the poor folks in the White House Travel Office to suffer (whom she helped vilify and falsely accuse of embezzlement to rid them) in favor of Clinton cronies who wanted the travel office job.

Chelsea Clinton's Husband Suffers Massive Hedge Fund Loss On Greek Investment

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/03/2015 23:28 -0400

Despite having Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein as an investor and being Bill and Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky (and two former colleagues from Goldman Sachs who manage Eaglevale Partners hedge fund) told investors in a letter sent last week they had been "incorrect" on Greece, helping produce losses for the firm’s main fund during two of the past three years. By 'incorrect' Chelsea Clinton's husband means the Eaglevale fund focused on Greece lost a stunning 48% last year and, as The Wall Street Journal reports, is impacting the overall returns of the roughly $400 million fund which has spent 27 of its 34 months in operation below its "high-water mark."



5 ways 2008 Hillary Clinton clashes with modern Democratic Party

By Dan Merica and Jeff Zeleny, CNN
Updated 8:11 PM ET, Mon April 20, 2015

(CNN)The Democratic Party has changed since Hillary Clinton last ran for president, forcing the 2016 favorite to play catch up on a number of issues that are important to her party's liberal base.

But some of Clinton's newly outlined views are different than ones she backed during her 2008 run, causing Democratic critics to call her out for "hedging" and flip-flopping on the issues.

Here are five issues where Clinton's 2008 views are out of step with the current mood of her party.


Neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama supported same-sex marriage in 2008, but Clinton has been slower than most Democrats to fall in line with the majority of her party who see same-sex marriage as a constitutional right.

n 2007, Clinton argued in favor of civil unions with full equality of benefits, but said that the right to marriage was something that should be left to the states. She reiterated that policy last year, after four years removed from domestic politics atop the State Department, telling a National Public Radio host that same-sex marriage was "a matter left to the states."

But last week, while traveling through Iowa on her first campaign trip, a campaign aide said in a statement that Clinton now views same-sex marriage as a "constitutional right."

Clinton's personal shift on marriage mimic the way popular opinion has shifted on the issue. In 2008, according to a Gallup survey, 40% of American supported recognizing same-sex marriage, while 56% said they should not be. Those numbers had flipped by May 2014, when 55% support same-sex marriage and 42% did not.


A majority of Americans -- not just Democrats -- support legalizing marijuana. And according to Gallup, 73% of self-identified liberal Americans said it should be legal in their 2014 poll.

Clinton doesn't agree. The former secretary of state backed medical marijuana in a CNN town hall last year, but told Christiane Amanpour that she wants to "wait and see" how legalization goes in the states before making it a national decision.

Later in the year, Clinton labeled marijuana a "gateway drug" where there "can't be a total absence of law enforcement."

During her 2008 run, Clinton was for medical research into the benefits of marijuana, but not decriminalization.

"I think we should be doing medical research on this," Clinton said in October 2007. "We ought to find what are the elements that claim to be existing in marijuana that might help people who are suffering... I don't think we should decriminalize it."

This could present a problem for Clinton. Marijuana legalization provided some of the only wins for Democrats during the 2014 midterm elections and many in her party's base want to go big on the issue in 2016.

No other issue has loomed over the Clintons' relationship with liberals as much as trade has.

Much to the ire of labor leaders, former President Bill Clinton signed the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994. Union members, though generally supportive of Clinton's presidency, see this as the moment when blue collar wages began to stagnate.

Clinton has been unclear on trade in the past. She supported NAFTA as first lady and wrote glowingly about it in her 2003 memoir "Living History."

But during her 2000 run for Senate and her 2008 run for president, Clinton began to sour on free trade and NAFTA.

"NAFTA and the way it's been implemented has hurt a lot of American workers," she said during a 2007 AFL-CIO forum. "Clearly we have to have a broad reform in how we approach trade."

Years after NAFTA, now liberals are activated by an even bigger trade deal in the works -- the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

As secretary of state, Clinton supported passage of trade pact as a tool for connecting the United States to developing nations like Vietnam. During a trip to Korea in 2011, she called for "as few barrier to trade and investment as possible."

Clinton, however, has seemingly backed away from those statements. On Friday, her spokesman put out a statement that took a wait-and-see approach on the deal, stating that Clinton will be waiting to see if the trade agreement passes a number of barriers free trade deals must meet.

And the next President of the United States of America is???...

Ted Cruz

Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz (born December 22, 1970) is an American politician and the junior U.S. Senator from Texas. He is a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 presidential election.

Cruz attended elementary and high school in and around Houston, graduated from Princeton University in 1992, and then from Harvard Law School in 1995. Between 1999 and 2003, Cruz was the director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, an associate deputy attorney general at the United States Department of Justice, and domestic policy advisor to President George W. Bush on the 2000 George W. Bush presidential campaign. He served as Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to 2008, after being appointed by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. He was the first Hispanic, and the longest-serving solicitor general in Texas history. Cruz was also an adjunct professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, from 2004 to 2009. While there, he taught U.S. Supreme Court litigation.



For evangelical voters, Rafael Cruz may be Ted’s best apostle

Story by Jonathan Tilove
Title photo by Jay Paul/Bloomberg
Presentation by Doug Miller
July 31, 2015

Rafael Cruz, father to Ted, is writing a book.

It will be about how America was founded as a Christian nation. About how the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are the word of God. About how America lost its way a half century ago when the Supreme Court banned prayer in school and tossed the Bible from classrooms, ushering in an era of declining morals and rising crime.

About how churches, cowed by a misunderstanding of separation of church and state, and to their enduring moral shame, acquiesced. About how it’s time for pastors — and Christians generally – to assert their influence in every aspect of American life, in arts and entertainment, media, business and most especially government.

The book, to be published in December by conservative press WND Books, will bear a simple title: “A Time to Act.”

If that sounds familiar, it ought to. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s best-selling book, “A Time for Truth,” was published in June. Subtitled “Reigniting the Promise of America,” it provides the rationale for his candidacy for president.

Rafael Cruz’s book will echo as its strategic sequel, perfectly timed to boost his son’s standing with evangelical voters, especially in Iowa, on whose good graces his candidacy hinges.

And who better to write the sequel than Rafael Cruz, who, after all, is also author of the prequel – which, of course, is Ted Cruz himself – inscribing his son with a kind of fundamentalist faith in the Constitution as holy writ.

“There are many people that think, ‘Oh, the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence are secular documents.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. The Bible was the foundation of those documents,” Rafael Cruz said. “As a matter of fact, they cite the Bible more than anything else, and so Christianity was totally intertwined with the Revolutionary War.”

Ted Cruz’s Truth Bomb About Criminals Has Liberals ENRAGED
By Robert Gehl - 184 Comments · In US

When Sen. Ted Cruz declared that the majority of criminals are Democrats, it was a masterful stroke.

The media is going crazy over the declaration, claiming it’s outrageous.

On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Monday, Cruz said that the Planned Parenthood shooting has really displayed the ugly underbelly of the media.

You know, every time you have some sort of violent crime or mass killing, you can almost see the media salivating, hoping, hoping, desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican so they can use it to try to paint their political enemies.”

“Now listen, here’s the simple and undeniable fact. The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” insisted Cruz.

“The media doesn’t report that. What they report, and there’s a reason why the Democrats for years have been viewed as soft on crime because they go in and they appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals, they go in and they do what Barack Obama tried to do, which is appoint a lawyer who voluntarily represented for free, a cop killer to a senior Justice Department position.”

The power players behind Ted Cruz's campaign

The senator is backed by a Texas-heavy group of strategists known for conservative combat.

Ted Cruz is running for president as an outsider, and his relatively lean campaign staff reflects that approach.

The Texas senator, who once played a pivotal role in shutting down the federal government, loves to rail against Washington, and his supporters have embraced the tagline “make D.C. listen.” Cruz was the first presidential contender out of the gates with an official announcement and did so with a core group of staffers that lacks bold-faced Beltway names. It’s largely a Texas-heavy group of strategists plus a handful of operatives with experience doing conservative combat. The Lone Star State Republican’s base begins with the conservative grassroots and with evangelical voters, and several on his team have experience wooing those worlds.

Here’s a look at the key players in Cruz’s political orbit:


• Chad Sweet is campaign chairman. Sweet is the co-founder of the security-focused Chertoff Group, a group he started with former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff after serving as his chief of staff.

• Jeff Roe is campaign manager. Roe is the founder of the Kansas City-based consulting group Axiom Strategies and has worked on a host of congressional races. He also worked for the presidential campaigns of Mike Huckabee in 2008, where he helped lead voter identification efforts, and Rick Perry in 2012, where he worked as a consultant. Sarah Hoeller, who works with Roe at Axiom Strategies, is director of operations.

• Jason Johnson is chief strategist. Johnson, a veteran Texas Republican consultant, spearheaded Cruz’s upstart Senate candidacy in 2011 and 2012, helping him defeat heavy favorite David Dewhurst, the then-lieutenant governor, for the GOP Senate nomination in the primary, before Cruz went on to win the seat. He’s a veteran of plenty of other campaigns in the Lone Star State, including now-Gov. Greg Abbott’s attorney general’s race in 2002 (he also served as Abbott’s chief of staff).

• Nick Muzin is a senior adviser. Muzin, who is also Cruz’s deputy chief of staff, has worked a number of places on the Hill, including for Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.). That gives Cruz a South Carolina connection that will be useful to him during the primary. Muzin has also helped introduce Cruz to the Jewish Republican donor world.

• Chris Wilson is director of analytics and research. Wilson is an Oklahoma City-based Republican pollster and longtime strategic consultant who at one point served as the executive director of the Republican Party of Texas. His business partner, Chris Perkins, is also involved in Cruz’s effort.

• Jason Miller is senior communications adviser. He was the deputy communications director on former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 presidential campaign and has worked on House and Senate races for members including Rep. Darrell Issa of California and former Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma. Miller is a partner and executive vice president at the conservative firm Jamestown Associates (which has had its share of clashes with GOP party committees).

• Willie Langston is finance chairman. He’s a prominent Houston businessman and Cruz donor who is chairman of the investment firm Avalon Advisors.

• Catherine Frazier is national press secretary. Frazier was most recently Cruz’s Senate spokeswoman, coming to the Texas senator after years with former Lone Star State Gov. Rick Perry, another possible 2016 contender. Frazier was also with Perry during his brief 2012 presidential bid.

• Rick Tyler is a national spokesman . Tyler, a longtime spokesman for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, joined Cruz’s political arm in February.

• Brian Phillips is rapid response director . He previously served as communications director for Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), another tea party darling who is perhaps Cruz’s closest ally in the Senate.

• Austen Furse is policy director. Furse is a Texas businessman and Cruz donor who was director of policy planning under President George H.W. Bush.

• Mark Campbell is political director. Campbell is a longtime GOP consultant who was political director for Giuliani’s 2008 presidential campaign and has worked on several other presidential campaigns, along with congressional races and for GOP party committees.

• Lauren L ofstrom is finance director. She was a fundraiser for Perry in 2012 and has also worked at the Republican Governors Association.

• Josh Perry is a digital strategist on the campaign, a position he also held in Cruz’s Senate office, where he often tweeted for Cruz and is a prolific Twitter user in his own right. He came up through the shop of Vincent Harris, an Austin, Texas-based digital consultant who helped shepherd Cruz into the spotlight before going to work for Rand Paul, another GOP contender.

• Victoria Coates is senior foreign policy adviser. She is Cruz’s national security adviser in the Senate, a high-profile role given Cruz’s focus on promoting a hawkish foreign policy. She has also advised Perry and served as an aide to former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.


• In Iowa, conservative operative Bryan English is leading the Cruz efforts. He is a former staffer for the hardline Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and has worked as an activist for socially conservative causes, such as opposing same-sex marriage. Jon McClellan, a Cruz regional political director based out of Houston, is also overseeing Iowa.

• New Hampshire political consultant Ethan Zorfas, who has worked in several different roles for Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), is steering the Cruz effort in the Granite State. David Sawyer, another Houston-based regional political director who has often traveled to Cruz’s political events over the past year, is also overseeing New Hampshire.

• In South Carolina, LaDonna Ryggs, an influential grassroots GOP activist from the conservative Upstate region, is spearheading Cruz’s Palmetto State effort.


Keep the Promise is the name shared by four super PACs, which reportedly have already raised at least $31 million for Cruz. Austin attorney Dathan Voelter is treasurer for three of them; Jacquelyn James of New York holds that title for a fourth. The very wealthy Mercer family of New York — Robert and Diana, and their daughter Rebekah — are reportedly backing one of the PACs. Stand for Principle, an Atlanta-based super PAC with ties to Cruz’s college friend, David Panton, and run by activist Maria Strollo Zack, is also backing Cruz. John Drogin, a former Cruz aide who was his 2012 campaign manager, is the executive director of Make D.C. Listen, another PAC backing Cruz and other candidates.



McConnell Capitulates To Cruz On Immigration


10/08/2015 09:27 AM ET

How many times have we been told that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, running for the GOP presidential nomination, is an ineffective "wacko bird,"in Arizona Sen. John McCain's insulting words?

Well, it now looks like he's ended up being very effective in getting the Senate to do something about illegal alien violent criminals.

The first piece of legislation the U.S. Senate will take up after its October recess will be a measure that includes Cruz-backed Kate's Law, imposing a mandatory five years in prison for deported aliens who re-enter America illegally.

It's named after Kate Steinle, slain on the San Francisco pier July 1 allegedly by Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, an illegal who had been deported five times.



Ted Cruz: ‘Republican Leadership Leads The Onslaught Attacking Conservatives’

by Katie McHugh28 Sep 2015

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Republican leadership on Monday for slavishly serving the interests of major corporations — and worse, leading attacks from the Left on its conservative grassroots base.

The Democrats are “relentless” in pursuing their principles, Cruz said, which include ever-increasing government spending and unlimited abortion rights. They’re “willing to crawl over broken glass with a knife between their teeth to fight for their principles,” Cruz said.

Republican leadership “reflexively surrenders,” Cruz said. “President Obama simply has to utter the word shutdown and Republican leadership runs for the hills.”

Cruz explained three types of votes take place in the Senate: “show votes,” a limp-wristed attempt to placate voters by staging a pre-ordained surrender to Democrats; votes that simply grow government; “must-pass” votes that include continuing resolutions, appropriations bills, and debt ceiling raises.

George W. Bush unleashes on Ted Cruz

'I just don't like that guy,' the former president tells donors.

By Eli Stokols
| 10/19/15 07:50 PM EDT
| Updated 10/19/15 11:24 PM EDT

Inside a sleek Denver condominium, George W. Bush let a hundred donors to his brother’s campaign in on a secret. Of all the rival Republican candidates, there is one who gets under the former president’s skin, whom he views as perhaps Jeb Bush’s most serious rival for the party’s nomination.

It isn’t Donald Trump, whose withering insults have sought to make Jeb pay a political price for his brother’s presidency. It isn’t Marco Rubio, Jeb’s former understudy who now poses a serious threat to his establishment support. It’s George W. Bush’s former employee — Ted Cruz.

“I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said Sunday night, according to conversations with more than half a dozen donors who attended the event.

One donor in the room said the former president had been offering mostly anodyne accounts of how the Bush family network views the current campaign and charming off-the-cuff jokes, until he launched into Cruz.

“I was like, ‘Holy sh-t, did he just say that?’” the donor said. “I remember looking around and seeing that other people were also looking around surprised.”

Donald Trump vs. Ted Cruz record at conservative review

"If there’s anyone who should know the value of filing for bankruptcy, it’s Donald Trump. He should have known that the $13.4 billion government bailout of the auto industry just put off the inevitable while putting taxpayers at risk. Bailouts and nationalizing whole industries can cripple free markets and has hampered our economic recovery. We need our next president to understand that economic freedom leads to growth and prosperity for all, and that the government should never be in the business of picking winners and losers."

– Club for Growth President Chris Chocola

"If I follow your logic, Bill Gates ought to be president of the United States because he’s worth ten times what you are too, and yet when it comes to economics and government he’s an airhead just like you."

– Mark Levin in 2011 on Trump using his business background as a qualifier for his candidacy

Levin: Establishment Would Rather Lose Than Nominate a Conservative

By: CR Wire | December 12th, 2015

News broke yesterday of GOP establishment figures plotting to take over a brokered convention and nominate some alternative hand-picked candidate for president. Such a move by Republican leadership would destroy the party.

On his Friday night program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin explained that the GOP establishment is perfectly comfortable doing that. They would rather let Hillary Clinton become president than suffer a constitutional conservative in office.

“The Republican establishment is about big government,” says Levin. “If they can’t nominate who they want, then fine…they want to control the republican apparatus.” And they’re willing to lose the election to remain in control.

Donald Trump talked politics with Bill Clinton weeks before launching 2016 bid

By Robert Costa and Anne Gearan August 5  Follow @costareports Follow @agearan


Former president Bill Clinton had a private telephone conversation in late spring with Donald Trump at the same time that the billionaire investor and reality-television star was nearing a decision to run for the White House, according to associates of both men.

Four Trump allies and one Clinton associate familiar with the exchange said that Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape.

Clinton’s personal office in New York confirmed that the call occurred in late May, but an aide to Clinton said the 2016 race was never specifically discussed and that it was only a casual chat.

The talk with Clinton — the spouse of the Democratic presidential front-runner and one of his party’s preeminent political strategists — came just weeks before Trump jumped into the GOP race and surged to the front of the crowded Republican field.

The revelation of the call comes as many Republicans have begun criticizing Trump for his ties to Democrats, including past financial donations to the Clintons and their charitable foundation.

Trump: 'I have far better judgment' than Cruz

By Eugene Scott, CNN

Updated 1:38 PM ET, Sun December 13, 2015 | Video Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)—Donald Trump says he has "far better judgment" than Republican presidential rival Ted Cruz after recordings revealed the Texas senator questioning the Republican front-runner on that subject.

"I was against going into Iraq," Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union." "That's good judgment. I was for bombing (ISIS's) oil long before anyone else was talking about it. That's good judgment. I have great judgment. I would say I have far better judgment than Ted."

The unusually cordial relationship between two of the top contenders for the GOP nomination fractured late last week and appears to be entering a new phase.

Their sparring is likely to intensify given the results of the latest Des Moines Register/Bloomberg News poll Saturday showing Cruz surging ahead of Trump in Iowa, 31% to 21%. The two will face off Tuesday in Las Vegas at the next Republican presidential debate, sponsored by CNN.

"He's been so nice to me. I mean, I can say anything, and he said, 'I agree, I agree,'" Trump said. "But I think the time will come to an end pretty soon, it sounds like."

Fulfilling his prediction, Trump called Cruz "a little bit of a maniac" in a separate interview, aired on Fox News Sunday. He criticized Cruz's history of intra-party squabbles -- including calling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, a liar.

"You look like the way he's dealt with the Senate, where he goes in there like -- frankly like a little bit of a maniac. You're never going to get things done that way," Trump said.

Last week, The New York Times released audio of Cruz speaking at a private fundraiser, where he questioned Trump and Ben Carson's judgment to lead America.

"You look at Paris, you look at San Bernardino, it's given a seriousness to this race," Cruz said. "People are looking for who is prepared to be a commander in chief. Who understands the threats we face. 'Who am I comfortable having their finger on the button?' Now that's a question of strength, but it's also a question of judgment. And I think that is a question that is a challenging question for both of them."

Trump said his professional success proves that he has "great" judgment.

"My judgment is great. I built a multi-, multi-, multi-billion-dollar company. Some of the greatest assets in the world," he said. "Tremendously big, number one bestsellers, including "The Art of the Deal," which may be the best in terms of business books. Tremendous television show called the Apprentice that lasted 14 seasons, and by NBC came -- they would beg me to do it again, as you can imagine and I said no, and they are going to sign, they signed Arnold Schwarzenegger."

Trump also praised his "strong temperament."

"One of the things I have is really good judgment, and I think I have really great temperament," he said. "It's a strong temperament, but you know when they chop heads off of Christians in the Middle East, and other people also. When they chop off heads, and when they treat people the way -- we're like Medieval times. Having a strong temperament is good."

Trump told Tapper that voters should pick him over Cruz because he's "more capable" to lead the country and that he gets along with people "much better" than Cruz.

"I'm more capable. Because I have a much better temperament. Because I actually get along with people much better than he does," he said. "You know people don't know that about me -- I actually have a great relationship with people. In fact, I was criticized in the beginning because I get along with Democrats and liberals and Republicans, and conservatives -- I get along with everybody."

Cruz, on the other hand, does not get along with everybody, Trump said.

"No, I don't think he does, and I like him," he said.

An establishment unhinged

Pat Buchanan: Are Japan and Israel fascistic for not allowing Muslim immigration?

Published: 3 days ago

Calling for a moratorium on Muslim immigration “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on,” Donald Trump this week ignited a firestorm of historic proportions.

As all the old hate words – xenophobe, racist, bigot – have lost their electric charge from overuse, Trump was being called a fascist demagogue and compared to Hitler and Mussolini.

The establishment seemed to have become unhinged.

Why the hysteria? Comes the reply: Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration tramples all over “American values” and everything we stand for, including the Constitution.

But is this really true?

The Constitution protects freedom of religion for U.S. citizens. But citizens of foreign lands have no constitutional right to migrate. And federal law gives a president broad powers in deciding who comes and who does not, especially in wartime.

In 1924, Congress restricted immigration from Asia, reduced the numbers coming from southern and Central Europe, and produced a 40-year moratorium on most immigration into the United States.

Its authors and President Coolidge wanted ours to remain a nation whose primary religious and ethnic ties were to Europe, not Africa or Asia.

Under FDR, Truman and JFK, this was the law of the land.

Did this represent 40 years of fascism?

Why might Trump want a moratorium on Muslim immigration?

Reason 1: terrorism. The 9/11 terrorists were Muslim, as were the shoe and underwear bombers on those planes, the Fort Hood shooter, the Times Square bomber and the San Bernardino killers.

And as San Bernardino showed again, Islamist terrorists are exploiting our liberal immigration policies to come here and kill us.

Thus, a pause, a timeout on immigration from Muslim countries, until we fix the problem, would seem to be simple common sense.



Thanks to Trump, fringe news enters the mainstream

By Paul Farhi December 11  Follow @farhip

Alex Jones may be America’s most successful conspiracy theorist. On his website, Infowars.com, and his daily radio program heard on more than 100 stations nationwide, Jones regularly promotes a variety of *beyond-the- fringe ideas: alleged government conspiracies in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001; fluoride-in-the-water health scares; suspicions that the moon landings were faked; doubts about President Obama’s place of birth and birth certificate.

Jones, in short, may be Donald Trump’s kind of guy.

The ranting radio host and the leading Republican candidate shared a microphone, and some common ground, last week in what may have been a dubious first — the first time a leading presidential candidate has been interviewed by a media figure from the far extremes. “Your reputation is amazing,” Trump assured Jones, after Jones assured Trump that most of his listeners supported his candidacy. “I will not let you down.”

Trump finding common ground with Jones is in keeping with Trump’s own rocky relationship with facts and credible information during the campaign. Many of Trump’s more controversial assertions since he declared for president have come from the murky swamp of right-wing, libertarian and flat-out paranoid sources that have proliferated and thrived as the Internet and social media have grown.

Mainstream media’s shrinking impact

December 12, 2015 Robert 33 Comments

“They are being ignored by large numbers of people who no longer see them as objective chroniclers of anything.” – Patrick Maines

10 Dec 2015 – Excerpts from an article by Patrick Maines.

Can there be any further doubt that we have now come to a time when the rightward half of the country perceives much of the mainstream media (the broadcast networks, big city newspapers, etc.) to be carriers of Democratic and/or left-leaning news and opinion?

The media deny this, but their denials — indeed, the very idea that the way to address this matter is to deny or contest it — change nothing. The bottom line is that perhaps one-half of the potential audience for these media outlets holds negative opinions about them.
This practice confounds most people's understanding of the marketing of mass products. Were millions of people, for example, to complain to automakers that the standard radios provided don't work well enough, the manufacturers would endeavor to fix it to the critics' satisfaction — not, as the media have done, simply deny that anything's wrong.

So that's an important difference between car companies and the legacy media, but what explains it, and what does the future hold for such media?

Exclusive — Donald Trump: Obama’s Trans-Pacific Free-Trade Deal Is ‘Insanity’

by Matthew Boyle9 Nov 2015Washington, DC

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump lambasted the permanent political class for supporting the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade deal, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News ahead of the next debate.

“The deal is insanity,” he said. “That deal should not be supported and it should not be allowed to happen.”

The 5,544-page deal is far too long to be understood, said Trump. “Nobody understands it,” he said. The “Obamatrade” deal is longer than Obamacare plus the 2013 amnesty bill, authored by 2016 candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Democratic leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Donald Trump Releases America First Policy Statement On U.S. Trade Deals….

Posted on November 10, 2015 by sundance

The currently considered TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade deal has the potential to be the fulcrum under every plank in the 2016 presidential election. Many people view immigration as the #1 concern underlying further economic issues – however, few people recognize that immigration is actually part of the TPP construct.

Globalists, via Wall Street international financiers, are determined to get TPP passed into law. Few of the GOP candidates stand in the way; Donald Trump is the primary roadblock to the current globalist goals.



Di Leo: Trans Pacific Partnership: Change for the Sake of Change or Well-Disguised Destruction?

Monday, October 12, 2015

By John F. Di Leo -

The short version – the one we know from the mainstream media (MSM) – is as follows: The TPP is a terrific trade deal which would increase our economic activity on both sides of the Pacific, and which might be the greatest lasting victory of the Obama administration. It involves some unsavory compromises, but the benefits far outweigh them, if the administration is to be believed.

And that may be true. But it may also be very wrong. The fact is, the Trans Pacific Partnership is a massive agreement that changes the entire scope of international trade policy, and merits at least as much critical analysis as did NAFTA, which – if you recall – we spent virtually an entire year fighting over, back in the early 1990s.

If we accept it, this agreement will alter many of America’s approaches to international commerce, not just between these twelve countries, but worldwide. And it doesn’t just affect exporters and importers either; this program affects manufacturers with completely domestic clienteles, and likely does much more that nobody has even predicted.

To begin to analyze the TPP, we first have to consider how import/export business is done, how all other Free Trade Agreements (known as FTAs) operate, and what their real purpose is.

The following script is from "Trump" which aired on September 27, 2015. Scott Pelley is the correspondent. Robert Anderson and Aaron Weisz, producers.

Picture a bar graph that averages the best political polls. Donald Trump stands above the crowded skyline of Republican candidates like one of his boastful buildings. First in the nation, first in Iowa, first in New Hampshire, and first, for the last 11 weeks. Political architects are amazed because Trump rose on a shaky foundation, his "shoot from the lip" style managed to offend women, Latinos, and American POWs. Now, with summer over, and four months to Iowa, voters captivated by a larger-than-life personality begin to want the fine details. That's what we were looking for, this past Tuesday, when we met Trump, on top, in his Fifth Avenue penthouse in Manhattan. He surprised us with news about his tax plan.

Putin loves Donald Trump

By David M. Drucker (@DavidMDrucker) • 10/17/15 12:01 AM

Donald Trump has said that as president he would get along with Vladimir Putin, and there's evidence that the Republican frontrunner's apparent fondness for the Russian strongman is being reciprocated.

Kremlin mouthpiece Konstantin Rykov said Wednesday in a Twitter post that Trump won the first Democratic presidential debate, held Tuesday in Las Vegas. In that tweet, Rykov linked to a Russian language, pro-Trump website with a Russian domain, www.Trump2016.ru, that he is likely behind. Until a few weeks ago, Rykov's Twitter home page featured Trump and his 2016 campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Western sources who monitor Russian politics told the Washington Examiner that Rykov is a propagandist arm of the Putin government machine. "Rykov is considered to be one of the leading pro-Kremlin bloggers in Russia," said Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia under President Obama who is now a senior fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution think tank. "As you can see from his Twitter feed, he is very active. And he loves Trump."

Donald Trump says Russia isn't to blame for MH17, despite evidence

By Tal Kopan and Jim Sciutto, CNN
Updated 12:21 PM ET, Thu October 15, 2015 | Video Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)—Donald Trump doesn't believe there is enough evidence to blame pro-Russian separatists for last year's downing of a commercial airliner over Ukraine -- despite the fact that the U.S. intelligence community believes "with confidence" that pro-Russian separatists shot it down.

"That's a horrible thing that happened," he said. "It's disgusting and disgraceful but Putin and Russia say they didn't do it, the other side said they did, no one really knows who did it, probably Putin knows who did it. Possibly it was Russia but they are totally denying it."

Trump calls Roberts 'a disgrace,' shrugs off protests in South Carolina
By Dan Friedman • 12/12/15 3:01 PM

The Donald Trump show stopped Saturday in Aiken, S.C., where the Republican presidential hopeful called Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts "a disgrace" during a rare question and answer forum.

Trump drew cheers and encouragement from about 4,000 supporters who attended the event.

Asked who he would appoint to the high court, Trump ripped Roberts, who was nominated by former President George W. Bush. Roberts "let us down" by casting a decisive vote that left the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate in place, Trump said. Trump said Roberts sold out conservatives in a bid to win popularity from Washington insiders.

Trump, who made the comments to radio host Laura Ingraham, argued that Rubio's stance on the issue "ends his shot" at the GOP nomination, adding further that Rubio also doesn't have the "gravitas" to pull off a victory.

Donald Trump's Rise Sparks Widespread Angst Among Jewish Republicans
Josh Nathan-KazisSeptember 10, 2015

t a recent board meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, the big donors and high-powered operatives in the room went around the table to make sure they had someone supporting each potential Republican nominee.

Jeb Bush backers were easy to find. Supporters of Marco Rubio, too, were plentiful. Ted Cruz had friends there, as did Scott Walker, and even George Pataki and Lindsey Graham. The Republican Jewish elite have spread themselves wide across the GOP firmament.

Yet Donald Trump, who has topped 20% to lead all other Republicans in recent presidential primary polls, and who also leads the pack in both Iowa and New Hampshire, is a different story. An RJC member who was present at the board meeting said he could not recall if Trump had backers there. What is clear is that, despite his surge in the polls, the anti-immigration hard-liner has strikingly little support among prominent Republican Jewish donors, activists and consultants.

Many Republican Jewish leaders remain unwilling to speak about Trump. The RJC’s spokesman did not respond to a request to speak for this story; neither did former Republican National Committee chair Ken Mehlman, who is a member of the RJC’s board; former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer, also an RJC board member, or former Republican House majority leader Eric Cantor, who has been close to the group.

Jewish Republicans’ critiques of Trump, when they can be convinced to air them, fall into two categories. Most echo the concerns of the Republican establishment, deriding the real estate developer and former reality show star who is advocating selective tax increases on the wealthy as unserious. They worry that he will drive away nontraditional Republican voters. Others, however, have deeper concerns.

“There are a lot of folks who are, to be charitable, into white identity politics, and to be uncharitable are outright racists, who are supporting Trump,” said Nathan Wurtzel, a Republican political consultant and principal at The Catalyst Group, who is Jewish. “It’s very off-putting and disturbing.”

Trump’s pundit-defying rise has highlighted the distance between the Republican Party’s growing Jewish caucus and some parts of its base. That’s an unlikely role for Trump, who has perhaps the most personal ties to the Jewish community of any Republican candidate: His daughter Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism in 2009, and Trump has lived his life in the heavily Jewish milieu of upper-class Manhattan. “Not only does he have a daughter who is… Shabbat observant, but he’s also a brash, outspoken real estate magnate,” said Jeff Ballabon, a Jewish Republican activist. “In some sense he seems more like an insider than an outsider to our culture.”

Jewish Group Slams Donald Trump For Spreading Untrue 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

By: Jason Easley

Sunday, November, 22nd, 2015, 5:06 pm

The Anti-Defamation League is blasting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for reviving the racist and bigoted conspiracy theory that were people were cheering in the US when the Twin Towers fell.

Transcript of Trump claiming that he saw people cheering with his own eyes when the towers fell on 9/11:

STEPHANOPOULOS: You know, you made — you raised some eyebrows yesterday with comments you made at — at your latest rally — and I want to show them, relating to 9/11.

TRUMP: Hey, I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You know, the police say that didn’t happen and all those rumors have been on the Internet for some time.

So did you meek — misspeak yesterday?

TRUMP: It did happen. I saw it.


TRUMP: It was on television. I saw it.

STEPHANOPOULOS: — with your own eyes.

TRUMP: George, it did happen.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Police say it didn’t happen.

Hillary Clinton plans to use executive orders as president to go around GOP Congress

By*Kelly Riddell*- The Washington Times
Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Democratic front-runner*Hillary Clintonis pledging to use executive orders to increase her clout in the White House to work around*Congress*and force Republicans to respond to her agenda, a tactic frequently employed by President Obama that has angered his GOP critics.

On the campaign trail,*Mrs. Clinton*has said on three occasions so far that she would use executive actions to help execute her domestic policy agenda on issues such as gun control, ending corporate “inversion” deals and immigration, where she promises to unilaterally shield more people from deportation.

The Great Thanksgiving Hoax

NOVEMBER 27, 2014Richard J. Maybury

TAGS*Free MarketsU.S. History
Each year at this time, schoolchildren all over America are taught the official Thanksgiving story, and newspapers, radio, TV, and magazines devote vast amounts of time and space to it. It is all very colorful and fascinating.

It is also very deceiving. This official story is nothing like what really happened. It is a fairy tale, a whitewashed and sanitized collection of half-truths which divert attention away from Thanksgiving's real meaning.

The official story has the Pilgrims boarding theMayflower, coming to America, and establishing the Plymouth colony in the winter of 1620–21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the wonderful new abundant land He has given them.

The official story then has the Pilgrims living more or less happily ever after, each year repeating the first Thanksgiving. Other early colonies also have hard times at first, but they soon prosper and adopt the annual tradition of giving thanks for this prosperous new land called America.

The problem with this official story is that the harvest of 1621 was not bountiful, nor were the colonists hard-working or tenacious. 1621 was a famine year and many of the colonists were lazy thieves.

In his*History of Plymouth Plantation, the governor of the colony, William Bradford, reported that the colonists went hungry for years because they refused to work in the field. They preferred instead to steal food. He says the colony was riddled with "corruption," and with "confusion and discontent." The crops were small because "much was stolen both by night and day, before it became scarce eatable."

In the harvest feasts of 1621 and 1622, "all had their hungry bellies filled," but only briefly. The prevailing condition during those years was not the abundance the official story claims, it was famine and death. The first "Thanksgiving" was not so much a celebration as it was the last meal of condemned men.

But in subsequent years something changes. The harvest of 1623 was different. Suddenly, "instead of famine now God gave them plenty," Bradford wrote, "and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God." Thereafter, he wrote, "any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day." In fact, in 1624, so much food was produced that the colonists were able to beginexporting corn.

What happened? After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop." They began to question their form of economic organization.

This had required that "all profits & benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means" were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, "all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock." A person was to put into the common stock all he could, and take only what he needed.

Our president echoes the Party line on Vietnam.

By*Paul Kengor*–*8.7.13

wanted to do last week was enjoy my vacation. Instead, I was assaulted by another breathtaking statement from the president of the United States, provided courtesy of an official White House press release. The occasion was a July 25 meeting between President Obama and the leader of communist Vietnam.Obama stated: “President Sang shared with me a copy of a letter sent by Ho Chi Minh to Harry Truman. And we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”

This, of course, is utter nonsense. Ho Chi Minh was a committed Marxist-Leninist revolutionary who cut his teeth at Moscow’s Lenin School. He became one of the Soviet Comintern’s most successful agents. Among the testimonies to his efforts are the countless boat people from Vietnam who now live in America (many of whom voted for Obama).

But not only is Obama’s statement nonsense; it’s also the product of communist propaganda.

In 2010, I published a book calledDupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. There, I shared numerous lines cooked up by Communist Party USA (CPUSA) to dupe liberals. One of them was precisely the line Obama echoed on July 25. CPUSA and its mouthpieces regularly compared Ho Chi Minh to the American Founders, claiming he was fighting for the ideas not of the Bolshevik Revolution but of the American Revolution. This line was employed constantly, and it worked magically with wide-eyed liberals. In*Dupes, I gave several examples, including Dr. Benjamin Spock, a leftist dupe easily manipulated by American communists. To wit:

In 1968, Spock published an influential screed against the Vietnam War, titled simply,*Dr. Spock on Vietnam, and co-authored with Mitchell Zimmerman, a Princeton grad student and anti-war activist. They consistently referred to the Vietcong as “communist patriots,” literally akin to the American revolutionaries. “The Vietnamese people declared their independence from France,” the authors stated, “much as we declared our independence from England in 1776.” More so, “Their war of independence was fought by a united front of various political groups and was led by the communist patriot Ho Chi Minh…. Ho is sometimes called the George Washington of Vietnam.”

According to Spock’s book, these were glorious patriots in North Vietnam, not totalitarian Marxists. These (unelected) modern incarnations of Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin had earned the support of the population: “The motivation for revolution is the same today as it was in 1776: the desire for justice and a better life.”

Naturally, Dr. Spock’s book was a smash among “progressives.” Yet, the book had another unsuspecting audience, this one deep inside Vietnam. An eyewitness was Lt. Robert Frishman, a decorated POW held by the Vietcong for two years. Once released, Frishman testified to Congress about the propaganda that he and other POWs were fed. In addition to closing and ending each day to the radio sound of “Hanoi Hannah,” they were allowed certain limited reading, so long as it was in the form of anti-American indoctrination. Frishman told Congress: “Dr. Spock on Vietnam, I got to read that four or five times.”

So did untold numbers of American moms who had nursed and reared their babies according to earlier Spock books. Imagine them naively wondering why America was not fighting*with, rather than against, Ho Chi Minh and the communists.*Why would Uncle Sam be at war with George Washington?

One of those young moms might well have been Barack Obama’s leftist mother. She surely had that same view of Vietnam.

In addition to Obama’s mother, there was also Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, an actual member of Communist Party USA (card number 47544). This, too, is a subject I know well, having written a book on Davis,The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor.

Davis did full-time propaganda work for the communist cause. I have a chapter documenting how Davis portrayed various global communist revolutionaries as reincarnates of the American Founders. Davis did this incessantly. Trying to quantify the exact number is impossible, but during a short window of 1949-50 alone, I counted seven examples of him in the*Honolulu Record*(the CPUSA Party-line publication in Hawaii) citing the “Founding Fathers,” primarily Thomas Jefferson and George Washington; one case of him pointing to the Declaration of Independence; two instances where he invoked the Declaration’s inalienable rights; over 30 references to “liberty” or “freedom;” and nearly 70 citations of the First Amendment, the Bill of Rights, or the words “Constitution,” “constitutional,” or “unconstitutional.”

For Davis, it was old hat to hitch his (red) star to the wagon of the American Founders. He did so in his kick-off column for the first edition of the*Chicago Star, the CPUSA publication for the Windy City, of which Davis was the founding editor-in-chief. In that July 6, 1946 piece, titled, “Those Radicals of ’76,” Davis insisted that he and his comrades were the true “spiritual descendants of … 1776.” Preaching an Obama-like mantra of “fundamental change,” Davis averred: “If history teaches us anything, it teaches that any fundamental change advancing society is spearheaded by strong radicals.” These were radicals, presumably, like Jefferson and Jay and Madison and Hamilton and … Lenin and Stalin. “So it was in 1776; so it is today,” summed up Davis. As “this nation’s forefathers in the 18th century” had done, it was time to “force into effect a modern Declaration of Independence.”

Alas, Frank Marshall Davis applied this angle to Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam. Like his cohorts at CPUSA, Davis had been way out in front on the Vietnam issue, urging America stay out and let these modernJeffersonians*pursue their “freedom and independence.” As early as an April 1954 column in the*Honolulu Record, Davis contended that Vietnam merely wanted “freedom and independence from the yoke of French imperialism,” but Washington was standing in the way. Why? According to the Party line pushed by Davis, it was because of capitalist greed and American economic exploitation: “Our leaders have decided that economic control of this area rich in natural resources must be maintained by what is called the ‘free world.’”

Davis first met a young Obama in the fall of 1970, the height of opposition to the Vietnam War. I have no Davis columns from the 1970s, as theRecord*was defunct, but he remained on the extreme left throughout the decade, throughout which he met with Obama.

Did Davis share any of his views on Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam with Obama? We don’t know. We can only speculate.

That said, I have an idea: Might someone somewhere in our illustrious media dare to ask our president, the leader of the free world, where he got his views on Ho and Vietnam? Some of us are interested.

Don’t hold your breath. Just like every instance of radicalism in Obama’s life, this one likewise is being ignored by the mainstream media. Yet another curious Obama-ism destined for the howling winds of Siberia.*




Bernie Sanders Releases Statement Blasting Campaign’s ‘Blackout’ in Corporate Media

by*Josh Feldman*| 8:11 pm, December 11th, 2015

The*Bernie Sanders*campaign released a statement earlier tonight targeting the “corporate” media for not giving Sanders the coverage he deserves.

A recent study*on media coverage of all the candidates found that not only is it dominated by*Donald Trump, but he himself is getting far more coverage than Sanders,*Hillary Clinton, and*Martin O’Malley*combined.

The study focuses on campaign coverage from the major nightly newscasts, and during this entire election season (up to the end of November), Trump has gotten 234 minutes on the nightly news, Clinton has gotten 113 minutes, and Sanders has only gotten 10 minutes.

That led the Sanders campaign to release a statement titled*“Why the Bernie Blackout on Corporate Network News?”

As lawmakers clash over refugees, Syrian immigration quietly tops 100,000 since 2012
By*Joseph J. Kolb
Published December 16, 2015


A proposal to admit 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States has ignited a bitter debate in Washington, but more than 10 times that number of people from the embattled country have quietly come to America since 2012, according to figures obtained by FoxNews.com.

Some 102,313 Syrians were granted admission to the U.S. as legal permanent residents or through programs including work, study and tourist visas from 2012 through August of this year, a period which roughly coincides with the devastating civil war that still engulfs the Middle Eastern country. Experts say any fears that terrorists might infiltrate the proposed wave of refugees from United Nations-run camps should be dwarfed by the potential danger already here.

“The sheer number of people arriving on all kinds of visas and with green cards, and possibly U.S. citizenship, makes it impossible for our counterterrorism authorities to keep track of them all, much less prevent them from carrying out attacks or belatedly try to deport them,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Numbers obtained from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection show 60,010 Syrian visa holders have entered the U.S. since 2012, including 16,245 this year through August. Additional numbers provided by a Congressional source showed another 42,303 Syrians were granted citizenship or green cards during the same period.

"It is highly unlikely that the 102,313 Syrians who were admitted over the past three years were effectively vetted," said spokesman Ira Mehlman, of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. "Even in countries where we have a strong diplomatic presence, the sheer volume of background checks being carried out precludes the kind of thorough vetting that is necessary."

The Syrians being admitted are coming directly from their homeland, usually through the U.S. visa program, as opposed to the refugees President Obama is seeking to take in through U.N.-run refugee camps. Most have secured legal entry before they arrive.

"Refugees are part of the admitted category," said Jaime Ruiz, spokesman for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. "Their cases are approved prior to arriving into the U.S."

Those who escaped Syria’s grinding civil war, which has killed an estimated 300,000, and made it to the U.S. are more likely to be those with the money and means to access the U.S. immigration bureaucracy, say experts. But even that system is susceptible to fraud.

Washington Watch: Cruz ’n Jews



For most Jews, the junior senator from Texas' hardline anti-abortion, anti-immigration, anti-gay marriage and anti-Muslim views are repellent

If senators got report cards the way children do in school, Ted Cruz’s would say “does not play well with others” every time.

He’s been called the Senate’s “most reviled member,” and that’s just among his fellow Republicans.

But the junior senator from Texas seems to like it that way. His failures inside the Beltway are successes outside, where he points to them to show he is the only one standing up to what he likes to call the “Washington cartel.”

The more Washington hates him the more those who hate Washington love him. That’s his operating assumption, and it’s finally beginning to show up in poll numbers. He catapulted to the lead in Iowa this week less than 50 days before the state’s caucuses.

His surge is attributed to the collapse of Ben Carson, an Evangelical favorite who was embarrassingly out of his league when the debate turned to national security and foreign policy, and a lot of time spent courting the state’s religious Right.

Cruz’s campaign strategy is tailored for a state like Iowa with its large and influential base of Evangelical and conservative Republican voters. It will be the key to winning the Iowa Caucus February 1 and early southern primaries in states with a strong Evangelical and conservative presence.

His message may appeal to a disaffected element of the party’s base but it is unlikely to go over well with non-Orthodox Jewish Republicans and independent voters.

Cruz has spent a lot of time courting Orthodox and very conservative Jews, and it appears to be paying off, but they are a minority of a minority.

For most Jews, his hardline anti-abortion, anti-immigration, anti-gay marriage and anti-Muslim views are repellent.

Cruz has suggested that if elected his interpretation of the Bible would take precedence over the Constitution or anything the Supreme Court says.

Cruz seems to go out of his way to antagonize people ,particularly his fellow Republicans. He has called his party leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a liar, and former President George W.

Bush, in whose administration he served, said, “I just don’t like that guy.” And it had nothing to do with running against brother Jeb.

A growing number of political pros and observers in both parties see Cruz as the most likely to dump Trump and become the GOP nominee – something that has the party establishment worried. That is pushing the party leaders toward Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has been focusing most of his fire and ire at his colleague from Texas lately.

Both men are 44, sons of Cuban immigrants, serving their first term and elected as Tea Party favorites and have very similar views on domestic and social issues.

By style and design, Cruz has positioned himself so far to the right that Rubio comes off looking – unfairly – like a moderate.

The party establishment, never enamored of Cruz, is looking at Rubio as its candidate unless one of the also-rans makes a sudden dash for the roses.

Cruz tries to paint Rubio as a liberal who supports the Clinton-Obama foreign policy and is too anxious to start another war, while Rubio calls Cruz an isolationist who is weak on national security.

The choice between Cruz and Rubio seems to have split the GOP’s wealthiest Jewish power couple. The word from Republican sources is that billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who spent upwards of $100 million in the 2012 campaign, is impressed with the young Floridian, who has been calling him frequently to kibbitz about issues.

Dr. Miriam Adelson is reportedly impressed by Cruz’s hardline pro-Israel rhetoric.

The selection – possibly a split decision – could be made in Las Vegas this week following Tuesday’s GOP presidential debate at Adelson’s’ Venetian Casino Hotel.

Ted Cruz Is Right to Attack the 'Neocons'


Hillary Clinton has no record to run on. Family income is lower and the world is more dangerous.*Donald Trump*nailed it when he told Chris Wallace, "Hillary calls me 'dangerous'? She's killed hundreds of thousands of people with her stupidity." Trump was referring to the Obama administration's campaign to overthrow Arab dictators like Libya's Qaddafi and Egypt's Mubarak, which contributed to the chaos in the Middle East after the so-called "Arab Spring." Marco Rubio can't attack Hillary's disastrous foreign policy record because--asTed Cruz*observes--Rubio supported all the same stupid policies. Picture a Cruz-Clinton presidential debate: Cruz denounces Hillary's incompetence in promoting chaos in the Middle East. Hillary remonstrates, "But most Republicans supported me!" Cruz counters: "That's right--I'm running against you*andagainst the Establishment in my own party." Game, set, match.

Here's a word of consolation for my neocon friends: It's not personal, just business. I'm a neocon too, an ex-lefty who went rightward with Reagan and carried my spear in the final phase*of the Cold War. I was chief economist at Jude Wanniski's supply-side consulting firm Polyconomics, which is as neocon as you can get, and I give the neocons*all the credit for Reaganomics. I've published inCommentary Magazine*and Irving Kristol'sPublic Interest.**I traveled the world promoting the Reagan model between 1988 and 1993--Mexico, Peru, Nicaragua, and most of all Russia--and learned firsthand how Quixotic was the conceit that our model*could be exported.

Every ideology has a use-by date and you're long past yours. Henry Kissinger did great*service to this country by opening relations to China, a necessary if not sufficient condition for winning the Cold War. But Kissinger couldn't see past the dull calculus of detente, while Reagan foresaw unconditional American victory over Communism--and without you neocons, he never could have done it. You made a Gargantuan error, though, when you assumed that the Reagan Revolution could be exported to the Middle East, Russia and China, and you misplayed the strongest hand that any world power ever held. America went from only-hyperpower status when George W. Bush took office to a playing second fiddle to Vladimir Putin*today. No-one wants to hear your claim that*we really won in Iraq in 2008 and lost it all because Obama wouldn't leave a few divisions there. And when the "Arab Spring" came along, you mistook*the oncoming express for the light at the end of the tunnel. You and the Obama crowd played "Dumb and Dumber." You both bought into the idea that Muslim democracy would arise from Islamist opposition to the old dictatorships.

As the attacks from Marco Rubio's neo-con allies on Ted Cruz pile up, calling Ted Cruz an isolationist, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin has had enough. *He went on offense, and went through the absurdity of the neo-con position on foreign policy as espoused by Bill Kristol, Stephen Hayes, and Marco Rubio.* He simply asked, "when don't we send troops?" *He added, "I just need to know." Levin gave a history lesson on what the difference between a Reaganesque foreign policy and the interventionist policies of the neo-cons. *He showed how the neo-cons favorite philosopher Edmund Burke, was against the very foreign policy they are espousing in his name. *Levin reminded the Kristol, Hayes, and Rubio that Burke was pro-American revolution but anti-French revolution.

Putin: Trump An 'Outstanding, Talented' Man

14:23, UK,*Thursday 17*December 2015

Vladimir Putin has described US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as an "unquestionably talented" man.

"He is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented," the Russian President told reporters after his annual news conference on Thursday.

"It's not up to us to judge his virtue, that is up to US voters, but he is the absolute leader of the presidential race," he added.

Mr Putin also described the property billionaire as a "very flamboyant man".

He said Russia would seek cooperation with the United States no matter who is elected president next year.

"We are ready to work with any president chosen by the American people," he said.

Mr Trump is still leading the national polls, with Texas senator Ted Cruz in second place in the race for the Republican candidacy.

But he has also been fiercely criticised for his controversial remarks and policy statements throughout his campaign.

Earlier this month, Mr Trump*called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

Donald Trump Is Not Just A Clown, He’s A Liberal Anti-Gun Clown


JUNE 17, 2015

The big joke Tuesday was that comb-over reality TV star Donald Trump announced that he’s running for president in 2016 as a Republican. As if it isn’t funny enough that he’s given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Party and the Clinton Foundation, he also said he wants Oprah Winfrey as his VP. And just in case you aren’t convinced of his conservative credentials, it turns out he’s left quite a liberal footprint of anti-gun, pro-abortion, redistribution of wealth, Obam-esque socialism.

Back in 2000 The Don was flirting with running for president as a Reform Party candidate. To get people jazzed about voting for the world’s biggest jackass, he published a book called*The America We Deserve, which laid out his positions on a variety of subjects.

Here’s what he wrote*about gun control:

It’s often argued that the American murder rate is high because guns are more available here than in other countries. After a tragedy like the massacre at Columbine High School, anyone could feel that it is too easy for Americans to get their hands on weapons. But nobody has a good solution. This is another issue where you see the extremes of the two existing major parties. Democrats want to confiscate all guns, which is a dumb idea because only the law-abiding citizens would turn in their guns and the bad guys would be the only ones left armed. The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions. I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s Internet technology we should be able to tell within seventy-two hours if a potential gun owner has a record.

How So-Called ‘Equality Act’ Threatens Religious Freedom

Ryan T. Anderson /*@ryantand*/*July 23, 2015*/*285 comments

Politico is*reporting*that the so-called “Equality Act” will be introduced today in Congress. The bill is the brainchild of the Human Rights Campaign—an influential, sophisticated and lavishly funded LGBT activist organization.

The “Equality Act” is a misnomer. The bill does not protect equality before the law, but unnecessarily and unjustly violates freedom by creating special privileges based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This proposed legislation would add “sexual orientation and gender identity” (SOGI) to more or less every federal law that protects on the basis of race. It goes well beyond the*Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)—which would have added SOGI only to employment law.

ENDA, which was first introduced in Congress in 1994, has been defeated each and every Congress. When it was first introduced, ENDA included only “sexual orientation,” but in 2007 “gender identity” was added to the bill. Thankfully, ENDA has never been made law.

Nevertheless, having expanded the bill from including sexual orientation to also including gender identity,*activists have also extended this misguided policy*well beyond employment—to “credit, education, employment, federal funding, housing, jury service and public accommodations.” These SOGI laws must be resisted, as I explain in chapter six of my new book, “Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom.”

The*Advocate reports*that the “Equality Act’s” special privileges would apply to “public accommodations, public education, employment, housing, federal funding, jury service, legal protections, and credit. The bill would also clarify that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act cannot be used to defend” people who believe that marriage is the union of man and woman. That’s right: the bill says that religious freedom needs to take a back seat to special SOGI protections.

The Advocate also reports that the “Equality Act” would require that “sex-segregated facilities must admit individuals in accordance to their gender identity.” That’s right: the bill would require biological males who identify as women to be able to use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

The “Equality Act” is bad public policy.

‘I Didn’t Look and I Didn’t Care’: Satanic Temple Leader Blogs Her Thanksgiving Day Abortion

By*Heather Clark*on*December 16, 201516 Comments

DETROIT, Mich. —*The leader of the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple recently blogged about her medical abortion, which she carried out on Thanksgiving Day.

“I had a Thanksgiving abortion,” wrote Jex Blackmore on her blog “UnMother.” “This was good because I don’t care much for the holiday and was provided ample time off from life to recover.”

Blackmore began blogging in mid-November, stating that*she didn’t believe it was the “right time” to have a child.

“The pro-creator of this little lump lives in the middle of the desert 1,700 miles away from here, and I am one million miles away in my own head,” she wrote. “On the verge of World War Three, the deification of Kim Davis and President Trump, this is not American soup for future family.”

The Satanic Temple leader shared about the various steps that she took to obtain the abortion, including visiting the abortion facility for an examination and pills that would end her child’s life. She expressed her objection to Michigan’s 42-hour waiting period and its requirement that women obtain information about fetal development and abortion.

Blackmore took her abortion pill on Thanksgiving Day and settled in to watch the 1988 science fiction horror film “They Live.” She later blogged about the intense pain, bleeding and nausea that she experienced for approximately seven hours until her deceased child fell out of her body.

“Something took hold of my abdomen and began to ring it out. I woke up covered in sweat and blurry-eyed. I vomited,” Blackmore recalled. “Then I was taken over by electric, resonant throbbing. I didn’t feel prepared. I expected waves of pain, but this was relentless.”

The number one killer of black Americans

It isn’t heart disease, it isn’t cancer, it isn’t homicide and it isn’t motor vehicle accidents.

In fact, the number one killer of black Americans is abortion.

Despite a lack of reporting by California, New Hampshire and Maryland, a total of 730,322 abortions were reported to the CDC in 2011, the most recently published reporting year.

405,994 of these reported abortions included cross-classified race/ethnicity data for 2011, of which 146,856 were reported to be black American abortions, equaling about 36 percent of the total number of abortions with reported race statistics.

Miley Cyrus Wears Prosthetic Penis & Bares Breast In Shocking Concert Outfit

Fri, November 20, 2015 8:17am EST by*Alyssa Norwin60 Comments1,071,823 Article Views

We’ve grown to expect Miley Cyrus to be half naked most of the time, but this takes things to a whole new level! During the opening night of her new tour, the singer showed off her boobs and even rocked a prosthetic penis while performing. Oh boy…

Those who attended*Miley Cyrus’*concert on Nov. 19 got*quite*a show. Stripping down is nothing new for the singer and she’s clearly content with*really*going there on her ‘Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz’ tour — these photos from the opening night are insane. Check ’em out here!

From her crazy*VMA*outfits, we knew Miley would be rockin’ some shocking costumes for this tour, but this is even crazier than we thought. In one look, she wears a strappy one-piece suit…with absolutely nothing underneath. So yeah, her*breasts are totally hanging out*(or are those fake? It’s hard to tell!) and in full view! But the look gets even crazier with the addition of a giant prosthetic penis and a messy lavender wig. Honestly, the most coverage from this outfit comes from her thigh-high silver boots.

A New Biblical Plague Has Risen Which Homosexuals Are Catching By The Droves And Is More Brutal And Violent Than HIV And Aids Which NO CONDOM Can Stop It

by*Walid Shoebat*on*November 6, 2015*in*General,Featured

Just when man thought he was smarter than God by inventing condoms, God looks down and creates a new biblical*plague worse than the HIV Virus and AIDS. Welcome to*Papilloma.

Years ago, the only*Papilloma*I knew was a Greek old time song I listened to when I lived in Israel. But today,*Papilloma*is a deadly virus that no matter what condom one uses it will not prevent from catching the sexually transmitted disease which predominately infects the LGBT community. God from above made it that not only intercourse spreads this disease (since man thought he was smart by inventing a condom), but regardless if these sexually diviant reprobates use*condoms, they still get the disease through genital skin to skin contact causing the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) to spread to new people making the LGBT’s ubiquitous condom rendered completely obsolete.

There is no escape from God. Even the best experts tell us that HPV is the main cause for some serious genital warts while they still promote the “condom”:

“Risk factors for genital warts are similar to other sexually transmitted diseases: sexually active young people with multiple partners, lack of*circumcision, lack of condom use, homosexuals.”

Today anal HPV is widespread which*no “safe sex” education can prevent. Sure, one should*still carry an umbrella even though the sky is hailing fire and brimstone.

While there is no need to show a ‘before’ photo,*here is an ‘after’ (excuse us for doing this for medical reasons) to show what to expect*when you listen to the promoters that one*“must experiment” with*some*homosexuality:

Christians Are At War With One Another As Americans Leave The Church In Droves

Sexual Revolutionaries Target Cal State Professor for Defending Families

Posted by JENNIFER ROBACK MORSE on Wednesday Nov 11th, 2015 at 1:22 PM

COMMENTARY: A tenured professor of English is threatened with dismissal because he challenged one of the sexual revolution’s core assumptions.

Robert Oscar Lopez, a tenured English professor at California State University-Northridge, is on the verge of being suspended without pay, ostensibly due to a conference he organized a year ago. In fact, I believe this is not the real reason why this man of Puerto Rican and Philippine heritage, who knows six modern languages as well as Latin and Greek, is being hounded out of his job.

Lopez’s parents divorced when he was a toddler. His mother formed an intimate relationship with another woman. His father disappeared from his life for a long time. Lopez believes that these events were traumatic for him, and he has been outspoken in saying so. His countercultural views are an embarrassment to the Sexual Revolutionary Establishment at his university and beyond. They believe he must be silenced. Getting him fired is one step toward that end.

I was one of the presenters at the conference in question, “Bonds That Matter.” And, unbeknownst to me, I was one of the sources of controversy in Lopez’s interaction with the Cal State administration.

Lopez invited me to present at the conference on the topic of divorce. I was eager to be part of the event, as my organization, the*Ruth Institute, agrees with his general perspective: that it is unjust to deprive a child of a relationship with his or her parents without good reason. Millions of children have their relationship with a parent damaged by parental divorce.

SPREAD THIS: Is Your Hometown on Obama’s “Secret List” for Importing Muslims? [FULL LIST]

Since 1992, the U.S. government has beenimporting something*quite unusual into strategic cities around America at a rate of 50,000 to 100,000 units per year without the expressed knowledge or consent of the people living in those cities.

Muslim “refugees,” as they have been so termed, have been flocking to our country in droves, all*under the radar*without going through the proper national security screening procedures.

What’s more, the U.S. State Department has made a “secret list” of 190 cities that have been selected to absorb all these immigrants.
Wouldn’t you like to know if your hometown is one of the cities selected as*a dumping sitefor Muslim refugees?

According to the Pew Research Center, “the estimated number of new Muslim immigrants varies from year to year but generally has been on the rise, going from roughly 50,000 in 1992 to 100,000 in 2012. Since 2008, the estimated number of Muslims becoming U.S. permanent residents has remained at or above the 100,000 level each year.

“Between 1992 and 2012, a total of about 1.7 million Muslims entered the U.S. as legal permanent residents. That constitutes a large portion of the overall U.S. Muslim population (estimated at 2.75 million as of 2011).”

Posted by*sundance

ABC Reporter John Santucci*has provided*the following statement released by candidate Donald Trump:

December 17, 2015 - 06:23 PM ESTCruz a 'hell no' on spending bill

What we’ve seen in Congress today is profoundly disappointing. This spending bill does not honor the promises we made to the men and women who elected us. It funds Obamacare. It funds Planned Parenthood. It funds executive amnesty. It fails to protect our national security and stop Syrian refugees from coming to this country. It fails to do anything to stop the Iranian Nuclear Deal. And what does it do? It jacks up yet more low-skilled immigration, which will only drag down wages, kill American jobs, and hurt working men and women.

This bill is the big-government agenda of Democrats that effectively forfeits our massive Republican victories of 2014 and cements Obama’s priorities for nearly the full remainder of his term. This is the Washington Cartel in action, and it’s precisely why the American people from coast-to-coast are so volcanically frustrated.

Organized Jewish Community Almost Unanimously Condemns American Hero Donald Trump

December 17, 2015*Realist Report 23 comments

The various organizations and institutions comprising the organized Jewish community will at times disagree on certain public policy and religious and/or cultural issues. However, on critical issues pertaining to the overall agenda of the international Jewish community – namely, the cultural perversion and destruction of Western civilization, the promotion of “diversity” and massive Third World immigration to the West, and*White genocide*generally – organized Jewry will come together and stand united. There are many examples I could cite.

For instance, the organized Jewish community almost*unanimously supported the proposed invasion of Syria just over a year ago, a topic Dr. Kevin MacDonald highlighted and discussed in*an important article.*The Jewish Daily Forward*has published rather revealing articles documenting*the overwhelming Jewish support for both homosexual rights and gay “marriage”*as well as*amnesty for illegal aliens*occupying and parasitizing off of the American taxpayer, subjects*I have written about in the past. More recently, I have*highlighted and exposedthe organized Jewish community’sdemand that America and Europe accept an unlimited number*of Middle Eastern “refugees”*(read:*invaders)*into their countries. On all of these critical issues, the Jews stand together united and determined.

The*Jewish Telegraph Agencyrecently provided us with yet another example of the organized Jewish community standing united on a key issue: the condemnation of American hero and leading GOP presidential contender Donald Trump.

Over A Year Before 9/11, Trump Wrote Of Terror Threat With Remarkable*Clarity

The terrorists and demagogues want us to be scared. We mustn’t give inGeorge Soros

It’s not easy to resist the threats and the hysteria that surround us, but we must do, as fear is the greatest danger to open society

Open societies are always endangered. This is especially true of America and Europe today, as a result of the*terrorist attacks in Paris*and elsewhere, and the way that America and Europe, particularly France, have reacted to them.

Jihadi terrorist groups such as*Islamic Stateand al-Qaida have discovered the achilles heel of our western societies: the fear of death. Through horrific attacks and macabre videos, the publicists of Isis magnify this fear, leading otherwise sensible people in hitherto open societies to abandon their reason.

Scientists have discovered that emotion is an essential component of human reasoning. That discovery explains why jihadi terrorism poses such a potent threat to our societies: the fear of death leads us and our leaders to think – and then behave – irrationally.

Science merely confirms what experience has long shown: when we are afraid for our lives, emotions take hold of our thoughts and actions, and we find it difficult to make rational judgments. Fear activates an older, more primitive part of the brain than that which formulates and sustains the abstract values and principles of open society.

The open society is thus always at risk from the threat posed by our response to fear. A generation that has inherited an open society from its parents will not understand what is required to maintain it until it has been tested and learns to keep fear from corrupting reason. Jihadi terrorism is only the latest example. The fear of nuclear war tested the last generation, and the fear of communism and fascism tested my generation.

The jihadi terrorists’ ultimate goal is to convince Muslim youth worldwide that there is no alternative to terrorism. And terrorist attacks are the way to achieve that goal, because the fear of death will awaken and magnify the latent anti-Muslim sentiments in Europe and America, inducing the non-Muslim population to treat all Muslims as potential attackers.

And that is exactly what is happening. Thehysterical anti-Muslim reaction to terrorismis generating fear and resentment among Muslims living in Europe and America. The older generation reacts with fear, the younger one with resentment; the result is a breeding ground for potential terrorists. This is a mutually reinforcing, reflexive process.

The hysterical anti-Muslim reaction to terrorism is generating fear and resentment among Muslims in Europe and America

How can it be stopped and reversed? Abandoning the values and principles underlying open societies and giving in to an anti-Muslim impulse dictated by fear certainly is not the answer, though it may be difficult to resist the temptation. I experienced this personally when I watched the last*Republican presidential debate; I could stop myself only by remembering that it must be irrational to follow the wishes of your enemies.

Forbes: GOP Support of Israel Responsible for Christian Persecution in Middle East

by*THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.26 Dec 2015

Despite much hand-wringing byRepublican*leadership, the GOP is actually complicit in the persecution of Christians in the Middle East because of its vocal support for Israel, argues Doug Bandow in a*Forbesessay*Saturday.

Bandow rightly notes that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world today and are “harassed and harmed in more than 100 countries.” Christians, he writes, “are particularly vulnerable to government abuse, especially in Muslim-majority states.” Yet Bandow takes issue with*Sen. Marco Rubio's(R-FL)Christmas Eve article denouncing attacks on Christian communities, contending that the GOP, rather than the Obama administration (or the Islamist radicals themselves), is*to*blame for Christian persecution.

The policies implemented by the Republican party “have hurt and will continue to hurt Christians around the world,” Bandow writes. Particularly odious, he declares, is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, “who actively aids Israeli settlers in the West Bank, harming Christian and Muslim Palestinians alike.”

The Neoconservative Movement is Trotskyism

By*Jonas E. Alexis*on January 22, 2013

neoconservative luminary Francis Fukuyama of Stanford (formerly of Johns Hopkins) compares the neoconservative movement to Leninism. Neoconservatism, according to Fukuyama, is the reincarnation to some extent of both Leninism and Bolshevism.

Fukuyama’s observation makes sense when even Irving Kristol, who founded the movement, proudly admitted that the “honor I most prized was the fact that I was a member in good standing of the [Trotskyist] Young People’s Socialist League (Fourth International).”

And this neoconservative movement, as Jewish writer Sidney Blumenthal has shown, found its political and intellectual ideology “in the disputatious heritage of the Talmud.”

Even after the birth of the neoconservative movement, many of its members such as Stephen Schwartz of theWeekly Standard*and Joan Wohlstetter of the RAND Corporation still had a burning thirst for Lev Davidovich Bronstein, known as Leon Trotsky.

In that sense, the neoconservative persuasion is a subversive movement which started out in the 1920s and 30s. Legal scholar Michael Lind pointed out some years ago that,

“Most neoconservative defense intellectuals have their roots on the left, not the right. They are products of the influential Jewish-American sector of the Trotskyist movement of the 1930s and 1940s, which morphed into anti-communist liberalism between the 1950s and 1970s and finally into a kind of militaristic and imperial right with no precedents in American culture or political history.”

This was the case*for Kristol, who bragged about how his Jewish intellectual comrades such as Nathan Glazer of Harvard, Philip Selznick of Berkley, Peter Rossi of Johns Hopkins, Merroe Berger of Princeton, I. Milton Sacks of Brandeis, and Seymour Melman of Columbia were not only Trotskyists but were “unquestionably the most feverishly articulate” in indoctrinating students into their*Weltanschauung.

At Christmas Rally, Trump Calls Clinton 'a Snake'

Dec 19, 2015, 5:14 PM ET

Christmas appears to have come early for Presidential candidate*Donald Trump*as he basked in the praise received from Russian President*Vladimir Putin*while on the campaign trail in Iowa Saturday.

"Russia's got plenty of problems. But I'll tell you what, if Putin likes me and he thinks I'm a good, smart person, that's a good thing. Not a bad thing," Trump said.

Acknowledging that Trump's GOP rivals didn't exactly think an endorsement from Putin was something to gloat about, the billionaire businessman told the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, crowd in his best*Jeb Bush*voice "Putin called him brilliant, that's not good."

Accusing Bush and others of wanting to ignite "World War III," Trump pondered what it would be like if Russia and the U.S. could "knock out an enemy together."

"This would be a great start if you think about it. The money we spend on fighting everybody," Trump told his Christmas themed rally.

Weighing in on Saturday night's Democraticpresidential debate, Trump called*Hillary Clinton*"a snake" and*Bernie Sanders*a "poor guy ... gave this whole thing away," referring to the first debate when Sanders said, "Enough with the damn emails," and said he would not criticize Clinton about her controversial use of a private server while she was secretary of state.

Photos show Trump in military garb before dodging draft



Donald Trump — once a smiling teenage cadet at a military academy — dodged the Vietnam War with student deferments and a boo-boo on his foot, records show.

Trump, a gifted athlete and decorated cadet at New York Military Academy in upstate Cornwall in the 1960s, sidestepped the draft with four deferments and a medical disqualification for bone spurs in his foot.

One Trump expert said he believes the GOP candidate “skated.”

“I doubt it was a serious medical issue,” Trump biographer Wayne Barrett, author of “Trump: The Deals and the Downfall,” told the Daily News Monday.

“Up to that time, he was an active athlete. It was bulls--t,” Barrett told The News. “I never heard of any foot problem other than them being well-placed in his mouth,” the biographer said.

Barrett said Trump likely got special treatment as a young man with money and influential family connections.

“It appears he was actively looking for some justification to evade it,” Barrett said of the draft.

“There’s no question it fit a pattern of avoidance that was commonplace in his generation. You cut a corner, maybe got somebody to write a letter or interpret results of an Army physical in a way that was beneficial to you,” he said.
Trump’s draft avoidance is back on the front lines after the bloviating billionaire dissed Arizona Sen. John McCain on Saturday, saying there was nothing heroic about the Navy pilot spending time in a North Vietnamese POW camp.

While McCain was nearly killed serving his country, Trump once got a medal as a cadet for being neat and orderly.

On Sunday, Trump said on ABC’s “This Week” that he’d opposed the Vietnam War — and declined to apologize to McCain.
Trump's campaign defended his military time Monday, saying in a statement he had "a minor medical deferment for bone spurs on both heels of his feet."

The deferment was supposed to be short-term, so Trump entered a draft and got the number 356 out of 365, the campaign said. His high number never got picked.

"Although he was not a fan of the Vietnam War, yet another disaster for our country, had his draft number been selected he would have proudly served and he is tremendously grateful to all those who did," the campaign said.

Trump topped the GOP field in a new Washington Post-ABC News national poll released Monday, grabbing 24% of likely Republican voters compared with 13% for Scott Walker and 12% for Jeb Bush.

In high school photos obtained by The News, Trump is seen with medals pinned to his uniform and posing as a star athlete on several teams, seemingly a hero in the making.

Ironically, the draft dodger performed so well in the military environment — with its early morning reveille, daily inspections, drills and taps — he was ranked third among his fellow cadets, a former classmate told The News.

“He was quite mature and driven,” classmate George Beuttell said Monday. “He was elected ladies’ man his senior year.”

Trump: I could 'shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters'

Updated 12:03 PM ET, Sun January 24, 2016

Sioux Center, Iowa (CNN)Donald Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street.

"I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," Trump said at a campaign rally here.

After the event, Trump declined to answer when asked by CNN to clarify his comments.

The GOP front-runner has repeatedly pointed to the loyalty of his supporters, many of whom tell reporters and pollsters that almost nothing could make them change their mind about voting for Trump in the presidential race.

Trump on God: 'I don't like to have to ask for forgiveness'

Maxwell Tani*Jan. 17, 2016, 2:49 PM*27,50514

After months of reflection, Donald Trump says he still doesn't regret*his decision not to ask God for forgiveness for his sins.

In an interview on Sunday with CNN, the Republican presidential frontrunner*said that he does not regret*never asking God for forgiveness, partially because he says he doesn't*have much to apologize for.

"I have great relationship with God. I have great relationship with the Evangelicals,"*Trump said in the interview*before pivoting to*his poll numbers among Evangelical voters.

"I like to be good. I don't like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good. I don't do a lot of things that are bad. I try to do nothing that is bad."

Trump was responding to a question from moderator Jake Tapper, who said that a Trump rival — who many*suspect is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) — conducted a telephone survey testing several lines of attack, including a jab questioning the reality-television star's religious convictions.

"He shouldn't be doing that," Trump said of the Cruz campaign's potential survey questions. "Very unethical."

Late last year, Trump told Republican pollster and focus-group guru Frank Luntz that when the real-estate mogul*has done something wrong, he tries to correct his error without getting God involved.

"I am not sure I have," Trump said when asked if he'd ever asked God for forgiveness. "I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don't think so," he said. "I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don't bring God into that picture. I don't."

Is Donald Trump Conservative? Here’s the Rundown

by*BEN SHAPIRO24 Jan 201619,169

Is Donald Trump conservative?

This week, Senator*Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has bashed Trump for insufficient conservatism. He explained, “Donald’s record does not match what he says as a candidate.” Cruz isn’t the only one. Last month, Rush Limbaugh said that Trump’s attacks on Cruz reflected the fact that he was not a “genuine conservative.” Mark Levin said in 2011, “Trump is NOT the real deal… He is not a conservative. He was happy to donate to Schumer, Weiner & Emanuel campaigns last year. He was pro-choice recently and now claims to be pro-life. He sounds more and more like Ross Perot.” Andrew Breitbart said at the time, “Of course he’s not a conservative. He was for*Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)before he was against Nancy Pelosi.”

I don’t believe Trump is a conservative either; I’ve said that repeatedly. Full disclosure: I’ve also said that I would vote for Ted Cruz if the primaries took place today. I’ve also said that Trump channels conservative anger against the establishment brilliantly, and that he has become a vessel for much-needed conversations on immigration.

With all that said, it’s worthwhile exploring Trump’s worldview. To do that, we must separate two elements of that worldview: his current positions, and his historic positions. The first goes to supposed conservatism, and the second goes to credibility – even if he says he’s conservative today, should you believe him?

We’ll go through the issues here (thanks toConservative Review*for a handy guide to Trump’s positions as well). We report, you decide:

Immigration.*After a career of flip-flopping on immigration (he ripped Mitt Romney in 2012 for being too harsh on illegal immigration and in 2013 said he hired illegals at his*golf courses), Trump has famously taken the most right-wing position on illegal immigration in this race. I wrote about it when Trump*released it on his website. Trump wants a wall, shutting down remittances garnered from illegal wages, and foreign aid cuts. He wants strong deportation policies and an end to birthright citizenship. Because many Republicans feel that the immigration issue is the prerequisite for any continuation of a small government republic, Trump has made hay on this issue.

Meanwhile, Trump flipped on Muslim refugees. Originally he said the U.S. would have to take in Syrian refugees; then he said he would take in no Muslim immigrants at all. That position has proved surprisingly durable with the conservative electorate

Trump muses about losing Iowa

He seems to come to terms with the possibility of a setback.
12/29/15 10:39 PM EST

Updated12/29/15 11:18 PM EST

Donald Trump seemed to come to terms Tuesday with an unfamiliar prospect: He might lose in Iowa, the first state to weigh in on the Republican presidential nominating contest.

At a campaign rally in Council Bluffs, Trump ran through a list of polls showing him leading the Republican race nationally and also in the Hawkeye State, which holds caucuses on Feb. 1. But he also noted that a handful of polls have shown him "very close" in the state, presumably trailing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has begun a steady surge there.

"If I come in second by 2 points, they'll say 'Ooh, this is a terrible defeat,'" he said, referring to media and pundit pronouncements. "It's not terrible."

It seemed like a classic case of expectations-setting common to presidential campaigns, but rarely seen from Trump, who has consistently led both in national and early-state polls. He heaped praise on Iowa's first-in-the-nation status and warned of political plots to bump Iowa "to the back of the pack" in future primary seasons. He said that if he wins, he'd ensure that Iowa remains the first state to hold a nominating contest.

It comes as he foreshadows a sustained ad blitz — at least*$2 million a week*— in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. He also told Iowa rally-goers to expect him to be there so often "You're going to get so sick of me."

"I really want to win Iowa," he said, adding, "We're going to give it our best."

How Political Party Convention Delegates are Chosen-And the Role the Delegates Play

By*Robert Longley, US Government*Expert

Updated*December 19, 2015.

In the summer of every*presidential*election year, political parties in the United States typically conduct national conventions to choose their presidential candidates. At the conventions, the presidential candidates are selected by groups of delegates from each state. After a series of speeches and demonstrations in support of each candidate, the delegates begin to vote, state-by-state, for the candidate of their choice.

The first candidate to receive a preset majority number of delegate votes becomes the party's presidential candidate. The candidate selected to run for president then selects a vice presidential candidate.

Delegates to the national conventions are selected at the state level, according to rules and formulas determined by each political party's state committee. While these rules and formulas can change from state-to-state and from year-to-year, there remain two methods by which the states choose their delegates to the national conventions: the caucus and the primary.

The Primary

In states holding them,*presidential primary elections*are open to all*registered voters. Just like in general elections, voting is done through a secret ballot. Voters may choose from among all registered candidates and write ins are counted. There are two types of primaries, closed and open. In a closed primary, voters may vote only in the primary of the political party in which they registered. For example, a voter who registered as a Republican can only vote in the Republican primary.

The Official Guide to the 2016 Republican Nominating Process

TEAM GOP*CONVENTION*- October 8, 2015

A Note from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus:*

Following the 2012 presidential election, we recognized the need to avoid a drawn out primary process and together have worked to change our primary calendar to shorten the process and accommodate an earlier convention.

I’m incredibly pleased with the progress we’ve made to improve our Republican primary process.*Our party is headed into the presidential election cycle stronger than ever, and we look forward to supporting our future Republican nominee as we work to take back the White House in 2016.

The nominee will be chosen by primary voters and delegates, as allotted by state parties and RNC rules. Recently,*state parties submitted their delegate selection and allocation plans for the 2016 Republican presidential nominating process.

Here's what you need to know:*

How Many Delegates Does Each State Get?

Each state’s delegate allotment is set by national party rules and includes at-large delegates, congressional district delegates, and national party representatives. Apart from the states, the District of Columbia and the five territories are awarded a specified number of at-large delegates.

What Are the Different Kinds of Delegates?

There are three types of delegates: At-Large Delegates (AL), Congressional District Delegates (CD), and Republican National Committee Members.

At-Large Delegates*(AL)*are statewide delegates who are residents of that state and are selected at large. Each state receives 10 AL delegates plus additional AL delegates based on the state’s past Republican electoral successes.
(10 delegates + bonus)*Congressional District (CD)*Delegates must be residents of and selected by the congressional district they represent. Each state gets three CD delegates per district.
(3 delegates per district)RNC Members*are automatically national convention delegates and include the state’s national committeeman, national committeewoman, and state chair.
(3 delegates)

How Are Delegates Allocated Among Candidates?

Each state assigns its delegates according to its own rules in consultation with the RNC and according to its location in the primary calendar. There are three main allocation methods:

Proportional*methods divide the state’s delegates based on results of their primary vote. Most proportional states have a threshold percentage that a candidate must reach to be eligible for delegates.

Proportional states may also award their delegates on a winner-take-all basis for candidates who receive more than 50% of the vote.*

*All States with votes between March 1 and March 14 must have proportional allocation.Winner-Take-All*method awards all of the state’s delegates to the candidate that wins the highest percentage of the state’s votes.

*States are permitted to award their delegates based on winner-take-all after March 14.Hybrid states*award delegates based on a combination of methods.
*States are permitted to award their delegates based on winner-take-all after March 14.



Is Trump A Soros Decoy?

Posted on*September 11, 2015*byHelena

Is Hillary groveling?

After arrogantly denying any wrong doing for months and months, Hillary has been coached to come clean, with added tears for sympathy. That’s an oxymoron. I can’t imagine Hillary ever having shed a real tear her entire life! Not the type. We’ve gone from complete adamant ‘I have done nothing wrong’ to complete whimpering ‘I take full responsibility for wrong doing’. And it just sits wrong.

Why would she cry? Because she got caught? Because she couldn’t pretend she was innocent? Because she is losing? Or because she hates admitting mistakes and especially hates making an apology because it goes against every fiber every grain of her psyche.

And now, she looks like she is groveling for support. I imagine her camp finally told her that she had no other option and she fought them like the banshee she is until the shadows pulled doorknob from the door and said either she apologizes or her money and backing will be on the other side of the door.

But what is really going on?

Donald Trump Twice Dumped Republican Party -Candidate has not always been GOP enrollee

AUGUST 6--With Donald Trump headlining tonight’s first Republican presidential debate, perhaps the purported billionaire will be asked to explain his fluctuating voter history,*which includes him twice dumping the GOP and spending most of the 2000s as a registered Democrat.

As previously detailed in these pages, the 69-year-old Trump has shown little loyalty to the party whose nomination he now appears to be seeking.

Trump’s campaign manager: If Fox won’t remove Megyn Kelly as moderator, maybe we’ll hold our own townhall on Thursday night

Allahpundit, Jan 25, 2016

Lewandowski’s bluffing, just as Trump bluffed before the September debate in*implying*that he might not participate unless CNN devoted the proceeds to veterans groups. Stirring a little extra controversy is all part of Trump’s regular debate pre-game. And there’s not a ghost of a chance that Roger Ailes will meet his demand: Not only would he look weak in caving, he would humiliate the network’s new biggest star in doing so. If Fox wants to keep Kelly away from network news, agreeing with Trump that she’s tainted by bias and needs to be kicked off the panel would be the worst thing they could do. Besides, half the reason to watch this freak show is because it’s the first time she and Trump will be face to face since the unpleasantness of the August debate. Who knows what holes he’ll accuse her of bleeding out of this time?

So, Big Government and the Open-Borders Lobby’s best friend,*Sen. Orrin Hatch*(R-Utah), took to*CNN*today to trash GOP presidential candidate*Ted Cruz:

"I think we'll lose if he's our nominee," said Orrin Hatch, the most senior Republican in the Senate.

"There's a lot of people who don't feel he can appeal to people across the board," Hatch said. "For us to win, we have to appeal the moderates and independents. We can't just act like that only one point of view is the only way to go. That's where Ted is going to have some trouble."

Let me be polite here: Go blow it out your ear, Sen. Hack. Er, Hatch.


I’ll say it*again: Seven-term incumbent Hatch embodies*everything that’s wrong*with the GOP brand. He’s a mascot for the Big Government Republican parade and masquerade of career politicians who stand for nothing and roll over for everything.


D.C.’s GOP establishment can’t stand the idea of a conservative presidential candidate who would actually pay more than election-year lip service to conservative principles. That’s why so many entrenched GOP Senators are pulling out all the stops to trash their colleague. Sen. Cruz is a stiff antidote to the Beltway-itis that has metastasized in the GOP halls of power.

Hours After Trump Dropped Out of Fox News Debate, These Comments He Made in 2011 Surfaced

Jan. 27, 2016 2:06am Oliver Darcy

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump once complimented Fox News host Megyn Kelly for her performance moderating a GOP debate in 2011.

Trump spoke to Kelly in 2011 about his frustration with candidates refusing to participate in a debate he was set to host with NewsMax. The businessman implied the Republican candidates declining invitations to attend his debate lacked “courage.”

He then heaped praise on Kelly.

“Do you really think you’re a better moderator than I am?” Kelly asked.

“No,” Trump promptly replied. “I could never beat you. That wouldn’t even be close. That would be no contest.”

The billionaire added, “You have done a great job, by the way. And I mean it.”

Trump’s 2011 comments surfaced on the Internet late Tuesday after his*campaign announced*he would not participate in Fox News’ Thursday debate.*At a news conference, Trump said his decision was in part influenced by the network’s refusal to remove Kelly as a moderator.

Aloe Blacc

On this episode of Live From Daryl's House, Daryl Hall welcomes rapper-turned-singer Aloe Blacc. From early on, this co-writer and singer of Swedish DJ Avicci's mega-hit, "Wake Me Up," was really drawn to the way folk singers were able to turn their songs into storytelling. This Southern California native's slick and smooth retro-soul sound is sure to leave you wanting more.

About the Show
Daryl Hall started Live From Daryl’s House, the free monthly web show in late 2007, after having the idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established colleagues and newer performers.

Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, Finger Eleven’s James Black and Rick Jackett, the Bacon Brothers and country star Jimmy Wayne, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, MySpace pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records’ Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA’s rising Parachute, Chicago rock band Plain White T’s and highly touted tunesmith Diane Birch.

Trump’s Lead In Iowa Is Based On A Miracle

By*Steve Berman**|* January 27, 2016, 04:15pm *|*@lifeofgrace224

The latest*Monmouth*poll in Iowa shows Trump up by 7 percent over Cruz among “likely caucus attendees.” But the assumptions behind the poll numbers present a very shaky case.

Since Trump draws a disproportionate amount of support from voters who are not political diehards, he will need a strong turnout to emerge victorious on February 1st. Based on past voting history and voters’ stated intentions to attend this year’s caucuses,the current poll estimates turnout will be*approximately 170,000 voters, which would far surpass the 122,000 record GOP turnout from four years ago. Increasing the poll’s turnout projection to 200,000 voters widens Trump’s lead to 32% over 21% for Cruz, with Rubio at 16% and Carson at 9%. Decreasing the turnout projection to 130,000 voters, which would still be a record level, puts the race in a tie at 26% for Trump and 26% for Cruz, with Rubio at 15% and Carson at 12%.

Really, so in order to justify Trump’s lead, somehow 50,000 more caucus attendees will have to show up and vote for Trump*than have ever shown up before. Trump has*12 paid staffers in Iowa, led by Tana Goetz, a 48-year-old former runner up on “The Apprentice.” Wow, what*raw horsepower.

One volunteer leader enlisted by Donald J. Trump to turn out Iowa voters has yet to knock on a single door or to make a phone call. Another is a “9/11 truther” with a website claiming that the Sept. 11 attacks were a government conspiracy. A third caucus precinct captain, who like the others attended a training session in West Des Moines last month, said the campaign’s goal of having them each enlist 25 supporters was unrealistic.

January 25, 2016 ↔ 1 commentTed Cruz, a Campaign Built on Rock

There was one of the rarest moments you will find in my twitter stream, a moment when I disagreed with the great Don Surber who was commenting on a Donald Trump Tweet:

Don then questioned if Ted Cruz was going to be around longterm and that’s when I showed him this interview from Oct 17th which someone still has under 1000 views on youtube.

There are two things worth noting concerning this interview it to understand them you need to see the*RCP polling from that day

As you can see at the time of this interview It was Trump, Carson & Rubio Ted Cruz was polling at 7.6% 6th place at the bottom of the 2nd tier. Even Jeb Bush and Fiorina were ahead of him. In fact in NH he was 7th behind Kasich with 5.6% Yet…

1. At the time of the interview Cruz had just won a straw poll well publicized & promoted for months and opened to any REGISTERED NH VOTER beating not just Carson & Fiorina who were both polling double of him at the time but also Trump who despite drawing 4000 the day before just a couple of hours away, could not draw 25 registered NH voters to get him to the 2nd round.

It’s one thing to talk a ground game it’s another thing to have one.

Coin toss broke 6 Clinton-Sanders deadlocks in Iowa — and Hillary won each time

By*Karen Friar

Published:*Feb 2, 2016 8:19 a.m. ET

Official state rules call for flip to end the impasses

While it was hard to call a winner between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders last night, it’s easy to say who was luckier.

The race between the Democrat presidential hopefuls was so*tight in the Iowa caucus*Monday that in at least six precincts, the decision on awarding a county delegate came down to a coin toss. And Clinton won all six, media reports said.

The situation came about in precincts where Sanders and Clinton were running neck-and-neck, but there were an odd number of delegates, so they couldn’t be evenly split between the two. That was the case in precincts in Ames, Newton, West Branch, Davenport and two in Des Moines, the*Des Moines Register reported.

Univision reporter Fernando Peinado caught one of the Des Moines coin tosses on video:

NH vote could reshape the presidential field

Staff Report

Granite Staters head to the polls today to cast the nation’s first primary ballots and possibly recast the presidential field.

Republican and Democratic candidates are making last-minute stops and visiting polling places.

Secretary of State Bill Gardner predicts record turnout with 550,000 votes — 282,000 Republican ballots and 268,000 Democratic ballots. There are 882,950 registered voters, and all eyes turn to the undeclared voters, who may vote in either primary.

Gardner tells the Union Leader that the snowfall overnight should have little effect on the first-in-the-nation primary, which is the 100th New Hampshire primary.

Besides those undeclared voters, sometimes called independents, there are 13 towns worth watching as potential bellwethers.

East Kingston, Lancaster, Newmarket, Pembroke, Rochester, Sanbornton and Washington have always voted for the Republican primary winner, every four years since 1952.

Epping, Hudson, Kingston, Laconia, Merrimack and Rollinsford have picked the Democratic winner since 1952, when the state law was changed to allow for voters to cast a ballot for the candidate, not his or her delegates.

The 2016 primary trends feature non-establishment and Washington outsiders shaking up the race, said Neil Levesque, executive director of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics & Political Library at St. Anselm College.

David Cay Johnston

21 Questions For Donald Trump

July 10, 2015*4:41 pm*/*491 Comments*/*Featured Post,Politics,*Top News


I have*covered Donald Trump off and on for 27 years — including breaking the story that in 1990, when he claimed to be worth $3 billion but could not pay interest on loans coming due, his bankers put his net worth at minus $295 million. And so I have closely watched what Trump does and what government documents reveal about his conduct.

Reporters, competing Republican candidates, and voters would learn a lot about Trump if they asked for complete answers to these 21 questions.

So, Mr. Trump…

1.*You call yourself an*“ardent philanthropist,” but have not donated a dollar to The Donald J. Trump Foundation since 2006. You’re not even the biggest donor to the foundation, having given about $3.7 million in the previous two decades while businesses associated with Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment*gave the Trump Foundation $5 million. All the money since 2006 has come from those doing business with you.
How does giving away other people’s money, in what could be seen as a kickback scheme, make you a philanthropist?

2. New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman successfully sued you, alleging your Trump University was an “illegal educational institution” that charged up to $35,000 for “Trump Elite” mentorships promising*personal advice from you, but you never showed up and your “special” list of lenders was photocopied from*Scotsman Guide, a magazine found at any bookstore.

Why did you not show up?

3.*You claimed The Learning Annex paid you a $1 million speaking fee, but on*Larry King Live,*you*acknowledged the fee was $400,000 and the rest was the promotional value.

Since you have testified under oath that your public statements inflate the value of your assets, can voters use this as a guide, so whenever you say $1, in reality it is only 40 cents?*

4.*The one-page financial statement handed out at Trump Tower when you announced your candidacy says you’ve given away $102 million worth of land.

Will you supply a list of each of these gifts, with the values you assigned to them?

5.*The biggest gift you have talked about appears to be an easement at the Palos Verdes, California, golf course bearing your name on land you wanted to build houses on, but that land is subject to landslides and is now the golf course driving range.

Did you or one of your businesses take a tax deduction for this land that you could not build on and do you think anyone should get a $25 million tax deduction for a similar self-serving gift?

6 .*Trump Tower is not a steel girder high rise, but 58 stories of concrete.

Why did you use concrete instead of traditional steel girders?

7.*Trump Tower was built by S&A Concrete, whose owners were “Fat” Tony Salerno, head of the Genovese crime family, and Paul “Big Paul” Castellano, head of the Gambinos, another well-known crime family.

If you did not know of their ownership, what does that tell voters about your management skills?

8.*You later used S&A Concrete on other Manhattan buildings bearing your name.

Trump Can’t Be Bought? Think Again.

December 18, 2015*/*In the news,*Presidential Candidates 2016

There are three main focuses of Donald Trumps campaign.

He is going to build a wall.He*started the*“No more political correctness” movement.He cannot be bought.

I could*speculate on the first two statements*and in my opinion, prove them to be false .. but I can completely and utterly PROVE the third statement is a LIE. Trump definitely CAN be bought and he most certainly DOES owe LARGE AMOUNTS of money*to some rather suspicious people.

The*Trump International Hotel and Tower, also known as*Trump Tower Chicago*and*Trump Tower, is a skyscraper*condo-hotel in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

The demolition and construction were financed by a 650-million-dollar loan from Deutsche Bank and a trio of hedge fund investors who represented George Soros as one of their sources of funds according to*The Chicago Tribune.

The contribution by George Soros is a $160 million investment, in the form of a mezzanine loan, a kind of second mortgage that typically charges a much higher interest rate than a first-mortgage construction loan.

Unlike the mezzanine loan, which has closed, terms of the $650 million construction loan have not yet been finalized, sources said.

Frankfurt, Germany-based Deutsche Bank, an active commercial real estate lender in the U.S., is expected to split up the loan with other banks.

The document does not identify the other participants, but a key member is Grove Capital LLP, according to sources familiar with the transaction.

The firm manages most of the multibillion-dollar real estate portfolio of the $13 billion Soros Fund Management, from which Grove Capital was spun off last month.

The third investor is Blackacre Institutional Capital Management LLC, the real estate arm of hedge fund Cerberus Capital Management LP, which manages assets totaling $14 billion.

Buchanan ran as a "pitchfork populist" in those elections, an outsider fed up with the way both parties did their business in Washington.

Trump’s Pal Al Trump and Sharpton in 2002. by JILLIAN KAY MELCHIOR September 1, 2015 4:00 AM @JILLIANKAYM

On a frigid January night in 1988, 16,000 spectators packed into Atlantic City’s Convention Center to see 21-year-old Mike Tyson take on boxing legend Larry Holmes, 38. The event, marketed as “Heavyweight History,” sold out, with an even larger audience watching as Home Box Office televised the event. In a ring emblazoned with Trump Plaza branding, Tyson repeatedly knocked down Holmes, until, to great uproar, the referee stopped the fight five seconds before the end of the fourth round.

But Holmes and Tyson weren’t the only spectacular pair in the arena that night. Leaving the Convention Center, amid fans vociferously enraptured with the night’s drama, was Donald Trump — and not far behind him, “in a light blue suit with his ever-present Martin Luther King Jr. peace medallion resting on his barrel chest, was Mr. [Al] Sharpton,” the New York Times reported. Sharpton and Trump forged an unlikely friendship over Atlantic City boxing deals that has lasted for decades, through ups and downs. Even as the Tawana Brawley scandal unfolded and Sharpton faced a 67-count indictment involving how he used funding for his youth organization, Trump remained a prominent supporter of the agitator, numerous sources close to the two men tell National Review.

Exclusive–Phyllis Schlafly Makes the Case for President Trump: ‘Only Hope to Defeat the Kingmakers’

by*JULIA HAHN10 Jan 2016Washington D.C.

In an exclusive hour-long sit down interview with Breitbart News,*91-year-old conservative icon and living legend Phyllis Schlafly declared that Donald Trump “is the only hope to defeat the Kingmakers,” and detailed why she believes Trump alone will return the government to the people. She warned that if immigration is not stopped: “we’re not going to be America anymore.”

Schlafly, born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1924, has been active in politics for more than one-quarter of all American history. She helped launch the conservative movement, create the pro-family agenda, and has led the fight against open borders trade and immigration policies. Thus, Schlafly’s proclamation to Breitbart News that front-runner Trump “represents everything the grassroots want” is certain to reverberate across the 2016 electorate.

Schlafly is also a Daughter of the American Revolution, author or editor of 20 books, a writer of nearly 2,500 columns, a lawyer, a mother of six, and a grandmother of 14.

The in-depth interview comes more than fifty years after the publication of Schlafly’s seminal work,*A Choice Not An Echo, which inspired a generation of conservatives and defined the battle lines between the Republican grassroots and the Party elites.

Today, Schlafly tells Breitbart that the defining and most important battle is immigration. She said that current visa rates will “destroy our country,” and called for a pause on all new immigration, just like the county had during the middle of the 20th century.

The Vermont socialist senator thinks that a everyone deserves a “living wage” – which usually means that a minimum-wage worker with no skills ought to be able to raise a family.* But like most lefties, his motto is “do as I say, not as I do.”

Writing in*Taki’s Magazine, James E. Miller feasts on the Sanders hypocrisy-

Sanders has propelled himself to the*near-top*of the Democrats’ favorite list based on, among many things, his support for a “living wage.” “The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage,” the irascible senator*proclaimed*at a Capitol Hill rally last year, “and [it] must be raised to a living wage.” That’s a nice, and*unrealistic, sentiment. But the problem is that Sanders doesn’t think his own employees deserve that kind of pay. According to the*Media Research Center, the Sanders campaign pays its interns only $12 an hour. That’s a hefty sum for phone bankers and coffee fetchers. But it’s not enough to pay apartment rent and feed a family. Does Bernie not think his college-age employees deserve to live securely?

Sanders’ “do as I say, not as I do” approach also pertains to the app economy. Not one to let an industry operate away from the watchful eye of the government, the senator*says*he has “serious problems” with companies like Uber because they are “unregulated.” And yet, as a study by*National Journal*showed, Bernie used the ride-sharing service Uber for*100%*of his taxi rides for the first six months of his campaign. For a company that*skirts worker*protection laws, one might think Mr. Solidarity would refuse to patronize Uber.

Then there is the coup de grâce: Sanders used his congressional campaign war chest to enrich his family members. An*investigation*by the neocon outlet Washington Free Beacon reveals that Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, collected a cool $90,000 from her husband’s House campaign in return for consulting services from 2002 to 2004. Bernie’s stepdaughter Carina Driscoll also collected $65,000 from the campaign during the same period.

That’s chump change by Hillary Clinton standards, of course. But give Bernie some time. *He’s only been on the national scene for a matter of months. Opportunity beckons.

Trump’s Vulgar Admission: Avoiding STDs from women was “my personal Vietnam”

Trump’s Vulgar Admission: Avoiding STDs from women was “my personal Vietnam”

HT:*The Daily Beast


The polls in South Carolina have shown that Trump is leading among evangelical voters. *Let's fix that problem right now. *But first let's remember a few facts about Donald:

He*deferred (or dodged) the draft for Vietnam 5 different times.He attempted to*prevent disabled veterans from becoming street vendors*in NYC right outside his building.

What was he doing while*American soldiers were fighting in Vietnam? *Trump was having his "personal Vietnam." *Watch this very vulgar interview between Howard Stern and Donald Trump (NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN):


Here's the transcript:

STERN: Now getting back to dating, and when you got to say to a woman, you gotta go to my personal doctor and I'm gonna have you checked out, is that a tough thing to say to a woman?

TRUMP: It's amazing, I can't even believe it. I've been so lucky in terms of that whole world. *It is a dangerous world out there. *It's like Vietnam, sort of.

STERN: Hey it's your personal Vietnam isn't it?

TRUMP: It is my personal Vietnam. *I feel like a great and very brave soldier!

STERN: A lot of guys who went through Vietnam came out unscathed. *A lot of guys going through the 80's having sex with different women came out with AIDS and all kinds*of things.

TRUMP: This is better than Vietnam, but it's uh... it's more fun.

STERN: A little better, but every v****a is a landmine, haven't we both said that in private?

TRUMP: [intense laughter] I think it is a potential landmine. *There's some real danger there.

STERN: When you go to a bar, do you ever go with a fleet of doctors and have them check all the women, and then party with the uninfected?

TRUMP: [laughter] The few! *You mean the few uninfected!


TRUMP: You have to have a roving doctor, his office has to be in your briefcase. *He has to be your best friend. *He has to go with you at all times. *He has to do onsite tests. [laughter]

Donald Drumpf - Illuminati Jew

December 29, 2015

lot of people who should know better, like the two Kevins, Barrett & MacDonald, think Donald Trump is some kind of saviour. Barrett even thinks Trump will bring*the perpetrators of 9-11 to trial.** The article below*reveals Donald Trump is a longstanding member of the satanic Masonic Jewish conspiracy that afflicts society:*"Donald Trump is nothing less than a sideshow and a counterfeit medieval medicine man offering cheap miracle and ILLUSIONARY fixes for America's problems here and abroad."*

Jewish opposition is designed to give Trump credibility, as*in the banker coup ruse of 1932.*


Illuminati credo:*

"A Jew was not created as a means for some other purpose; he himself IS the purpose, since the substance of all divine emanations was created ONLY to serve the Jews."**Chabad Lubavitch leader, "The Great Rebbe" Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson

Donald Drumpf:

"The only [candidate] that's going to give real support to Israel is me," said Donald Drumpf. "The rest of them are all talk, no action. They're politicians. I've been loyal to Israel from the day I was born. My father, Fred Trump, was loyal to Israel before me."[51]

Trump Praises His Sister, a Pro-Abortion Extremist Judge

By RAMESH PONNURU August 27, 2015 7:57 PM*

Donald Trump told Mark Halperin yesterday that his sister, a federal judge, would be a “phenomenal” Supreme Court justice.

He also said that “we will have to rule that out now, at least.” If he ever becomes president, let’s hope he rules it out permanently.

Maryanne Trump Barry came up in my book The Party of Death for writing one of those heated judicial decisions in favor of giving constitutional protection to partial-birth abortion.

She called a New Jersey*law against it a “desperate attempt” to undermine Roe v. Wade. It was, she wrote, “based on semantic machinations, irrational line-drawing, and an obvious attempt to inflame public opinion instead of logic or medical evidence.” It made no difference where the fetus was when it “expired.” So: The right of abortionists to make a child “expire” by partially extracting her from the womb, sticking scissors in the back of her head, vacuuming out her brain, and*crushing her skull to complete her extraction,*is right there in the Constitution. But let’s please not have any “semantic machinations.”

Leading Pro-Life Women Tell Pro-Life Voters: Don’t Vote for Donald Trump, Can’t Trust Him on Abortion


STEVEN ERTELT * JAN 26, 2016 * | * 4:33PM ** WASHINGTON, DC

A group of pro-life women leaders have a message for pro-life voters ahead of the first presidential primary and caucus votes next month: Don’t* vote for Donald Trump, he can’t be trusted on abortion.

In a letter provided to LifeNews, the group of pro-life women leaders claim Trump is not trustworthy on the abortion issue because offhanded comments he’s made make it appear he supports pro-abortion judges on the Supreme Court or a pro-abortion vice-presidential running mate. The group includes heavy hitters like Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List and Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America and black pro-life activist Star Parker.

They plan to send the following letter out to pro-life voters in Iowa today:

Trump: Europe is terrific place for investment

By*Donald Trump, special to CNN

updated 8:24 AM EST, Tue January 22, 2013

Editor's note:*Donald Trump is an American entrepreneur and one of the world's foremost investors. He is the Chairman and President of The Trump Organization. In this article, Trump discusses solutions to the global financial crisis and Europe as an investment opportunity.

(CNN)*-- What has been made clear by current events and financial upheavals since 2008 is that the global economy has become truly that -- global.

The near meltdown we experienced a few years ago made it clear that our economic health depended on dependence on each other to do the right thing.

are now closer to having an economic community in the best sense of the term -- we work with each other for the benefit of all.

I think we've all become aware of the fact that our cultures and economics are intertwined. It's a complex mosaic that cannot be approached with a simple formula for the correct pattern to emerge. In many ways, we are in unchartered waters.

The good news, in one respect, is that what is done affects us all. There won't be any winners or losers as this is not a competition. It's a time for working together for the best of all involved. Never before has the phrase "we're all in this together" had more resonance or relevance.

Donald Trump’s companies sought to import 1,100 immigrant workers: report

By*Kellan Howell*- The Washington Times
Saturday, August 1, 2015

GOP 2016 frontrunner*Donald Trump*is staking his campaign on promises to bring jobs back to America, but a new analysis of U.S. Labor records shows thatTrump’s business have imported more than 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas since 2000.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio's Brother-In-Law Is A Convicted Drug Trafficker

Grace Wyler*Jul. 13, 2011, 3:17 PM*11,37329

Florida Senator*Marco Rubio, a rising star in the Republican party who is often mentioned as a potential vice presidential nominee, could find his political prospects tarnished by news that his sister and her husband were* caught up in a South Florida drug trafficking raid in the 1980s.

An*investigation by Univision*found that Rubio's brother-in-law,*Orlando Cicilia, was arrested during a major antinarcotics operation in 1987. Rubio was a 16-year old high school student at the time.

According to public records, Cicilia was arrested after federal law enforcement seized the Miami home where he lived with Barbara Rubio, Senator Rubio's sister. Barbara Rubio was not arrested or indicted. Cicilia was sentenced to 25 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana.

The arrest was part of "Operation Cobra," a federal crackdown on a Florida drug smuggling ring that killed a federal informer and chopped up his body, according to a*NYT*storypublished at the time. The story reports that the ring, led by Cuban American Mario Tabraue, paid $150,000 in bribes to the Key West police chief and Miami-Dade county officials, and used Miami police officers to collect, count, and disburse drug profits.

Cicilia was released in 2000 for good behavior.*Univision*reports that he currently lives in Senator Rubio's mother's home in southwest Miami and is listed as a co-owner of the house.

How Rubio helped his ex-con brother-in-law acquire a real estate license

When Marco Rubio was majority whip of the Florida House of Representatives, he used his official position to urge state regulators to grant a real estate license to his brother-in-law, a convicted cocaine trafficker who had been released from prison 20*months earlier, according to records obtained by The Washington Post.

In July 2002, Rubio sent a*letter*on his official statehouse stationery to the Florida Division of Real Estate, recommending Orlando Cicilia “for licensure without reservation.” The letter, obtained by The Washington Post under the Florida Public Records Act, offers a glimpse of Rubio using his growing political power to assist his troubled brother-in-law and provides new insight into how the young lawmaker*



Marco Rubio's 'high-heeled booties' mocked by Republican rivals

Presidential candidate makes fashion splash on the campaign trail with three-inch heels and is roundly mocked for shoes ‘straight out of Austin Powers’

Scott Bixby
Wednesday 6 January 2016*17.55*EST

Marco Rubio has made the critical political mistake of not dressing like a complete schlub. Everyone, it seems, is talking about his*kinky boots.

The Florida senator and Republican presidential candidate came close to pulling off an acceptably frumpy look as he boarded his campaign bus in New Hampshire on Monday: mildly unkempt hair; creased black dress pants before noon; a*lumpy blue sweater. But Rubio’s decision to don what Vanity Fair delicately dubbed “statement footwear” has turned his three-inch heels into a ball and chain.
A chance tweet from a New York Times political reporter and former fashion correspondent spurred*snark*from Senator Ted Cruz’s communications director (“A vote for Marco Rubio is a vote for men’s high-heeled booties”),*teasing*from fellow Senator Rand Paul (“Cute new boots!”), and a*sideswipe*from fellow Floridian Jeb Bush (“They’re not high-heeled”).

“This is straight out of an Austin Powers movie,” laughed MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, in*an entire Morning Joe segment*devoted to Rubio’s sartorial slip-up. “They’re shagalicious!”

All because Rubio broke the unwritten rule of American campaigning that requires would-be Oval Office occupants to replace the contents of their closets with heavily starched white dress shirts, three-inch wide red ties and boxy suit jackets at least two sizes too large. The only embellishment allowed, perhaps, is the candidate’s choice of American flag pin. The dress code projects maturity, responsibility, and above all, hyper-masculinity, which means that for a presidential hopeful to don footwear in the same vein as that worn by*teen Britpop idolsis a fashion faux pas of the highest order.

Marco Rubio On Fox News: Let’s Make America Great Again!

Darren McCollester/Getty Images

by*MATTHEW BOYLE 30 Dec 2015 Washington, DC

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
under fire on the campaign trail just four weeks ahead of Iowa’s all-important caucuses on Feb. 1, appears to have changed his tune on whether America is great or needs to be made great again.
Rubio is amid a full-scale pander to conservatives as he’s found himself trapped in the ever-compressed GOP establishment lane of 2016 GOP presidential candidates.

This week he’s endorsed Mark Levin’s Convention of States, trotted out*

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)
*as an endorser, and framed himself as a “conservative” while his own campaign team refers to him as a “moderate.” And now Rubio appears to be reversing his criticism of Donald Trump, the GOP frontrunner, for Trump’s pledge to “Make America Great Again.”

On Fox News on Wednesday morning—appearing from the trail in Iowa—Rubiotold the host*that he wants to make America great again, or pretty darn close to it.

“We are going to re-embrace the principles that made America great,” Rubio said, referring to America’s greatness in the past tense.

Marco Rubio hit with birther controversy over parents' citizenship

Jan 15th 2016 4:09AM

Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is facing a new controversy as opponents allege he is legally unable to serve as president.

The issue at hand -- as Ted Cruz has learned well -- is over whether Rubio can be consider a "natural born citizen."

Rubio's lawyers are in court this weekfighting claims he's not eligible because his parents weren't U.S. citizens until four years after his birth. The lawsuit claims that means he is ineligible to run under*Article 2 of the Constitution.

Rubio's citizenship*has been contested before, when the question popped up in the 2012 election after rumors swirled that Republican candidate Mitt Romney might tap Rubio as a potential running mate.

The argument over what a "natural born citizen" actually means has been going on for years, and the only group who could actually define it, the Supreme Court, has never done so.

By:*CR Wire*| February 17, 2016

an*NBC/WSJ poll*released today, Ted Cruz leads Donald Trump by two points nationally.

Cruz has 28 percent to Trump’s 26 percent. Rubio is third with 17 percent, followed by Kasich at 11, Carson at 10, and Bush in last place at 4 percent.

“The results from the poll -- conducted after Trump's victory in New Hampshire, as well as after Saturday's GOP debate in South Carolina -- are a significant reversal from last month, when Trump held a 13-point lead over Cruz, 33 percent to 20 percent.”

Donald Trump has polled first in 31 consecutive national polls since November, when Dr. Ben Carson briefly led Mr. Trump. Cruz’s lead over Trump comes a surprise given recent polling in South Carolina. Mr. Trump currently leads Ted Cruz by double digits there, with the South Carolina primary taking place on Saturday.

Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted this survey, says Trump's drop could signal being “right on top of a shift in the campaign.”

“When you see a number this different, it means you might be right on top of a shift in the campaign. What you don't know yet is if the change is going to take place or if it is a momentary 'pause' before the numbers snap back into place.”

In hypothetical one-on-one matchups, the*NBC/WSJ*national poll shows Trump behind both Cruz (56 percent to 40 percent) and Rubio (57 percent to 41 percent).

Ted Cruz’s not-so-secret Super Tuesday weapon: the ground game


Austin Bureau
Published:*17 February 2016 10:00 AM

Updated:*17 February 2016 09:24 PM

AUSTIN — In Texas, Ted Cruz can count on more than just his status as a favored son.

His home-field advantage ahead of the March 1 primary banks on the vast network of activists — dubbed his “grass-roots army” — that he cultivated in his 2012 Senate upset and has carefully maintained ever since.

Those troops now stand ready to fortify Cruz’s White House bid at a particularly critical moment.

Cruz won’t be able to campaign the way he likes ahead of Super Tuesday by visiting every far-flung corner of the map — Texas is just one of 13 states casting ballots or going to caucus on that day, and early voting started Tuesday. That means he must, for the first time, ditch part of his tried-and-true playbook.

And with Texas’ 155 delegates hanging in the balance, Cruz’s motivated home-state supporters are already setting up phone banks, walking blocks and otherwise working to get out the vote for that day’s biggest prize.

“He doesn’t have to create anything — it’s already on the ground,” said Steve Munisteri, a former top adviser to Rand Paul’s campaign and an ex-chairman of the Texas GOP. “And it’s not smoke and mirrors. It’s real.”

HOUSTON, Texas*– Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today announced the endorsement of Kelly Shackelford, a top religious liberty litigator and spokesman for more than a quarter century.

Kelly Shackelford is the President and CEO of Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s largest legal organizations dedicated entirely to defending and restoring religious liberty. He is a constitutional scholar who has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, testified before Congress on constitutional issues, and won three recent landmark First Amendment and religious liberty cases. Texas Lawyer named Shackelford one of the 25 greatest Texas lawyers of the past quarter century. He is a frequent speaker and commentator on national news.

“For me, the number one issue is religious liberty, and on that issue the choice is easy,” Shackelford said. “Ted Cruz not only believes in religious liberty, he champions it. I have fought alongside him and watched his willingness to sacrifice for our first freedoms. His brilliance, his understanding, and his proven commitment – not just words – are unequalled in this race. I don’t have to worry about what he will do: I’ve watched him do it in battle. As someone who has been committed to fighting for religious liberty for over 26 years, I wholeheartedly endorse Ted Cruz for President. He is the clear choice.”

The Latest: Cruz says Obama shouldn't travel to Cuba

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - The Latest on the 2016 race for president, three days out from the South Carolina Republican primary (all times local):

10:15 p.m.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says President Barack Obama should not travel to Cuba next month.

The White House is planning to make the announcement about the visit as early as Thursday.

But asked about reports of the president's plans on Wednesday night during a town hall in South Carolina broadcast on CNN, the Republican candidate for president said Obama shouldn't make the trip "as long as the Castros are in power."

Cruz's father was born in Cuba, where he was arrested and jailed before fleeing to the United States in the 1950. "My father has seen firsthand the evil and oppression in Cuba," Cruz said.

Cruz is also speaking out against any plans of closing the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, saying he fears Obama will do so before leaving office next year.

9:55 p.m.

Bernie Sanders is repurposing his well-received "America" television ad for the upcoming Democratic contests in Nevada and South Carolina.

The gauzy ad featuring the music of Simon and Garfunkel was first released during the Iowa caucuses. The people featured in the original spot were overwhelmingly white, leading top Hillary Clinton ally David Brock to say the ad presented a "bizarre" image of America.

Nevada and South Carolina are more racially diverse and the new ads feature more minorities, as well as scenes from locations in both states.

The changes come as Sanders tries to boost his appeal with black and Hispanic voters. Clinton's campaign is hoping to offset Sanders' strength with young voters by drawing big vote totals among minorities.

The new Sanders' ads are airing in the Reno, Nevada, and Greenville, South Carolina, areas, according to Kantar Media's CMAG data.

9:30 p.m.

Marco Rubio says a significant portion of minority families in America feel they're being treated differently.

The son of Cuban immigrants says he was a victim of racism as a 7-year-old, during a mass migration of Cubans in 1980. Rubio said older kids in his Nevada neighborhood told him to get on a boat and go back to his country.

Rubio said during Wednesday's CNN presidential town hall, "That disturbed me as a young child."

Rubio would become the nation's first Hispanic-American president if elected. He noted he was endorsed Wednesday by South Carolina's Indian-American governor and will campaign Thursday alongside the state's African-American senator.

He said, "That says a lot about the Republican Party."

8:45 p.m.

Republican Donald Trump says that, if he's elected president, any person he nominates for Supreme Court justice will have to pledge to uphold a landmark gun rights case.

Trump was answering questions on a televised town hall on MSNBC when he was asked whether he would make upholding the Heller decision a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees.

The 2008 case determined that Americans have the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.

Trump responded: "I give that commitment right now. Absolutely. "

He added that he's been "very strong" on defending the Second Amendment and that both he and his sons are members of the National Rifle Association.

8:20 p.m.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson says he would probably nominate a replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia if he was now in the White House.

"Why not do it?" Carson asks at a town hall broadcast by CNN from Greenville, South Carolina.

He'll be followed later Wednesday night by fellow Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. South Carolina's GOP primary is on Saturday.

Venezuela Is Out Of Food: Here’s What An Economic Collapse Really Looks Like

By*Daisy Luther

Venezuela is out of food.

After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government*has declared a “nutritional emergency.” This is just the most recent nail in*the beleaguered country’s slow, painful economic collapse.

Many people expect an economic collapse to be shocking, instant, and dramatic but, really, it’s far more gradual than that. It looks like empty shelves, long lines, desperate government officials trying to cover their tushes, and hungry people. For the past two years, I’ve been following the situation in Venezuela as each shocking event has unfolded. Americans who feel that our country would be better served by a socialist government would be wise to take note of this timeline of the collapse.

A quick review: Why Venezuela Is Out of Food

In 2013, many began to suspect that the*outlook for Venezuela was grimwhen prepping became illegal. *The Attorney General of Venezuela,*Luisa Ortega Díaz, called on prosecutors to target people who are “hoarding” basic staples with serious sanctions.

Shortly thereafter, grocery storesinstituted a fingerprint registry to purchase food and supplies. Families had to register and were allotted a certain amount of supplies to prevent “hoarding.”

Then, just over a year ago,*it became even more apparent that the country was falling*when long lines for basic necessities such as laundry soap, diapers, and food became the norm rather than the exception.*Thousands of people were standing in line for 5-6 hours in the hopes that they would be able to purchase a few much-needed items.

Shortly after the story broke to the rest of the world, the propaganda machine shifted into high gear. *As the government began to ration electricity, it was announced that this was not due to economic reasons at all, but instead was a measure of their great concern for the environment.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy
By Richard Poe

irst proposed in 1966 and named after*Columbia University*sociologists*Richard Andrew Clowardand*Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy*seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.*

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue an African American man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" in the May 2, 1966 issue of*The Nation. Following its publication,*The Nation*sold an unprecedented*30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called "crisis strategy" or "Cloward-Piven*Strategy," as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them," Cloward told*The New York Times*on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would "the rest of society" accept their demands.*

The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state.*Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. "Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1971 book*Rules for Radicals.*When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule*book" with a socialist one.*

The authors noted that the number of Americans subsisting on welfare -- about 8 million, at the time -- probably represented less than half the number who were technically eligible for full benefits. They proposed a "massive drive to recruit the poor*onto*the welfare rolls."**Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the system. The result, they predicted, would be "a profound financial and political crisis" that would unleash "powerful forces*for major economic reform at the national level."

AUGUST 4, 2015Bernie Sanders’ Top Five Race Problems: the Whiteness of Nominal Socialism


Racism as Just an Economic Problem

The nominally socialist Democratic Party presidential candidate Bernie “sheep dog” Sanders, from 95% white Vermont, has, it turns out, has some race problems – at least five by my count. The first one, very much on his display in his speech to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s old organization the Southern Christian Leadership Conference*(SCLC) last July 25th, is his economistic tendency to downplay the significance of race and the importance of specifically anti-racist struggle.

Reflecting the influence of the Black Lives Matter movement that has arisen in response to racist police killings, Sanders addressed the SCLC to demonstrate his commitment to racial justice. He came armed with a surplus of terrible statistics on US racial disparities and institutional racism. Sanders seemed eager to wrap himself in the legacy of Dr. King. “Bernie” (as his liberal; and progressive fans like to call him) trumpeted his own youthful work in the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. He quoted King on the disgraceful existence of mass poverty in a land of prosperity and on the obscenity that (as King noted in Memphis, Tennessee just days before his assassination or execution) “most of the poor people in our country are working every day…and…making wages so low they cannot begin to function in the mainstream of the economic life of our nation.”

Young women living with parents, relatives at rate not seen since 1940, study finds


Sarah Skidmore Sell, The Associated Press
Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015

The percentage of young women living at home with parents or relatives has risen to its highest level since 1940 as more millennial women put off marriage, attend college and face high living expenses.

A Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data found that 36.4 per cent of women between the ages 18 and 34 lived with parents or relatives in 2014, the most since at least 1940, when 36.2 per cent lived with family.

It is a very different world for women now, though, despite the “return to the past, statistically speaking,” says Richard Fry, a senior economist at Pew.

Fry says young women are staying home now because they are they are half as likely to be married as they were 1940 and much more likely to be college-educated. Other economic forces, such as increasing student debt, higher living costs and economic uncertainty, are also playing a role.

Casey Ballard was living away from home in Portland, Oregon, but rent ate up roughly two-thirds of her paycheque and she was ready for a career change. A September move back with family in California allowed her to try out teaching as a substitute and to pursue teaching full-time.

“There was that element of frustration and feeling like a failure,” she says about returning home. “But then the logical side of me kicked in and said ’It’s just fiscally responsible.”’

Young men have historically lived with parents at higher rates than young women, and similar economic and cultural forces are keeping an increasing number of men at home too in recent years. But the rate young men are staying home with their parents and relatives, 42.8 per cent, remains below the 47.5 per cent level for men in 1940

Poll: Majority of college students favor censorship and “mandatory sensitivity training”

By*Rebecca Downs*|*October 28, 2015*|*

If it seems free speech has been in the news a lot lately, that’s because it has. It’s worth reporting about when multiple campuses take an issue with free speech. And these are liberal students on liberal college campuses, who act, many of them, in the name of being inclusive, accepting, and tolerant.

As was*reported*on Monday about a recent poll commissioned by the William F. Buckley Jr. Program:



The 'Roe Effect'*
Abortion today results in fewer Democratic voters 18 years from now.

Society, July/August 2005

Roe v. Wade*is a study in unanticipated consequences. By establishing a constitutional right to abortion, the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court no doubt thought they were settling the issue for good, accelerating a process of liberalization that was already under way in 1973. But instead of consensus, the result was polarization. The issue of abortion soon after, and for the first time, took a prominent place in national political campaigns. By 1980, both major political parties had adopted extreme positions--Republicans favoring a "pro-life" constitutional amendment to ban abortion, and Democrats opposing virtually all regulation on "pro-choice" grounds. Every presidential and vice-presidential nominee since then has toed the party line on abortion.

Polarization over abortion coincided with a period of Republican ascendancy. Since the parties split on abortion, the GOP has won five of seven presidential elections, and no Democrat has had a majority of the popular vote. Republicans took over the Senate in 1980, and both houses of Congress in 1994. Obviously, many other factors have contributed to Republican success, but it is hard to look at these results and conclude that abortion has been a winning issue for the Democrats. Thus, the politics of abortion has favored the party that opposes the court-imposed "consensus."



Portland Community College to devote an entire month to 'whiteness'-shaming

Reports of Trump’s Inevitability Are Greatly Exaggerated

by JOHN FUND February 21, 2016 6:50 PM @JOHNFUND

In his victory speech in South Carolina, Donald Trump vowed to sweep the twelve primaries held on Super Tuesday, March 1, and implied the race would then be over: “Let’s put this thing away!”

He also belittled rivals who claimed that as the field shrinks, they will be able to close on Trump and deny him the nomination. “They’re geniuses!” he mocked. “They don’t understand that as people drop out, I’m going to get a lot of those votes also.” Not so fast, Donald. We have had three contests so far, and the field has narrowed from twelve candidates before Iowa to five now. But Trump’s numbers have bounced around from 24 percent in Iowa*to 35 percent in New Hampshire to 32 percent in South Carolina. His average is a tad under 31 percent. Trump is the front-runner, but he has to find a way to win a majority of the delegates, and the kind of campaign he’s running is making it harder for him to crack a ceiling of about a third of the vote. In the run-up to South Carolina, Trump came out in favor of the health-care mandate, defended Planned Parenthood, accused George W. Bush of lying about the Iraq War, and stood by his call to impeach Bush. (He later retreated on the mandate and on Bush’s supposedly lying.) His consistent inconsistency helps explain why only four in ten GOP voters in a new Associated Press poll view Trump in a positive light. He will have trouble growing his coalition to win a majority of delegates, even as more candidates drop out.

By Mike King

What your intrepid reporter and his trusted feline sidekick did, however, find surprising -*shocking*to be more precise - is what appears to be a cryptic death threat suggested by an Esquire online story posted on February 24, 2016 (full article here). The headline reads:*'How to Stop Donald Trump',*and is written byCharles Pierce. It's a very intriguing headline, but, in and of itself, nothing much to cause alarm.*

But just two paragraphs into his hate-filled piece, we find an extended reference to Louisiana Senator*Huey Long, the anti-Establishment insurgent who was planning to challenge incumbent President FDR in the 1936 election. From the Esquire article:

"In his magisterial biography of Huey Long... T. Harry Williams explains the thinking behind the long game that the 'Kingfish' saw himself playing as the Great Depression played out.

There was no doubt in Long's mind that that all would go as he had planned it. Of Roosevelt he said scornfully, 'I can take him. He's a phony…He's scared of me. I can outpromise him, and he knows it. People will believe me and they won't believe him.'"

The energy behind the two men is as similar as the parallel is inexact.*

Huey Long ... relentlessly vilified the economic and social elite, first in Louisiana and then in the entire country. He, Trump, on the other hand, was a child of that elite, and he had never departed from it, except in his public persona, which is where we find him now. A huge portion of the Republican electorate—and, sadly, a not-insignificant portion of the American people—wants a strongman, the more vulgar the better. Huey Long came by his vulgarity naturally. He, Trump has had to work at it .... I am one of you, they both said,*you poorly educated suckers. Look how common and vulgar I am.

There does not appear to be any way to stop him now.*Unless something completely untoward happens, He, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president."

The moment of truth: We must stop Trump

By*Danielle Allen*February 21

Danielle Allen is a political theorist at Harvard University and a contributing columnist for The Post.

Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump’s rise, I now understand. Leave aside whether a direct comparison of Trump to Hitler is accurate. That is not my point. My point rather is about how a demagogic opportunist can exploit a divided country.

To understand the rise of Hitler and the spread of Nazism, I have generally relied on the German-Jewish émigré philosopherHannah Arendt*and her arguments about the banality of evil. Somehow people can understand themselves as “just doing their job,” yet act as cogs in the wheel of a murderous machine. Arendt also offered a second answer in a small but powerful book called “Men in Dark Times.” In this book, she described all those who thought that Hitler’s rise was a terrible thing but chose “internal exile,” or staying invisible and out of the way as their strategy for coping with the situation. They knew evil was evil, but they too facilitated it, by departing from the battlefield out of a sense of hopelessness.

How I Came To My Opinion On Donald Trump

I receive this question almost more than any other: Why don't you support Donald Trump? I've met the man, his camp asked me to introduce him at CPAC in 2015, he was perfectly amiable. He's been on my radio and TV programs more than any other primary candidate. I just can't get on board with his lack of consistency or his policies. So, to answer the question: A bulleted list of items that helped shape my opinion on the Republican primary candidate. All information is public domain as reported in the press, easily found everywhere online. You're certainly welcome to your own opinion, but this is what contributed to mine. As I give courtesy to diverse opinion on the topic, so do I expect it in return.*


--> Trump says he will "hire the best minds" as president but according to the news items below, apparently did not vet his own business partners.*

Trump and Felix Sater:

Though he touts his outstanding memory, when Donald Trump was asked under oath about his dealings with a twice-convicted Russian émigré who served prison time and had documented mafia connections, the real estate mogul was at a loss.

Even though the man, Felix Sater, had played a role in a number of high-profile Trump-branded projects across the country.


...*Donald Trump has also been seeking to minimize his past business ties with Sater, the Russian émigré who appeared in photos with Trump, and carried a Trump Organization business card with the title “Senior Advisor to Donald Trump.”

Meet Donald Trump's Alter Ego

Updated*February 22, 20166:28 PM ETPublished*February 22, 20169:00 AM ET


Until last year, the architect of Donald Trump's presidential campaign was an obscure political operative in New Hampshire.

Now, campaign manager Corey Lewandowski can claim to have engineered victories in South Carolina and New Hampshire and a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, a winning streak that gives Trump a strong shot at the Republican nomination.

On the night of his New Hampshire primary victory, Trump acknowledged Lewandowski's role in the win, asking, "Does Corey have a ground game or what?"

That night, Lewandowski stood stage right to Trump, looking relaxed, a rare moment of rest for a man who's known among colleagues for chugging energy drinks and being in constant motion.

Until Trump hired him last summer, Lewandowski had never run a national campaign. Now he's Trump's alter ego, comfortably telling interviewers that "it's time to send somebody to Washington who is willing to fundamentally change the system and make America great again. There is only one guy willing to do that: Trump."

A Behind-The-Scenes Career In Politics

At 41, Lewandowski has spent half his life in politics, almost entirely behind the scenes and most recently as the New Hampshire director of Americans for Prosperity, the Koch-affiliated group. Lewandowski was unavailable for an interview for this story.

Before signing on with Trump, Lewandowski was known in New Hampshire political circles as a hard-charging operative who was as unafraid to take on Republicans as he was to take on Democrats. At the height of the Tea Party movement, Lewandowski mock-debated a cardboard cutout of former Gov. John Lynch at rallies.

"You know he's in with both feet and both hands and he's working 100 miles an hour, and he was a formidable adversary or an incredible ally, whatever the issue is," said state Sen. Andy Sanborn, who got to know Lewandowski during this period.

In his adopted hometown of Windham, Lewandowski tried to forge his own political career, running unsuccessfully for town treasurer in 2012. He also upended the town's politics, using public records laws to probe local government and launching robocalls targeted at voters to stoke outrage over a visit to the town by President Obama.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage endorses Donald Trump for presidentTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS*Today, 6:27 PM ET


AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine's outspoken Republican governor is endorsing brash New York billionaire Donald Trump for president.

Gov. Paul LePage announced his endorsement Friday while speaking on “The Howie Carr Show,” a conservative radio talk show based in Boston.

He called in from Florida, where he's on vacation. He says Trump “wants to make America great again” and adds Trump “is the only one doing that right now.”

LePage says he hasn't spoken with Trump. He was a supporter of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie before he ended his presidential bid. Christie also endorsed Trump on Friday.

LePage and Trump are known for speaking their minds.

LePage repeated his assertion he, not Trump, is the original bombastic politician. LePage jokes he “was Donald Trump before Donald Trump became popular.”

Marco Rubio’s Immigration Dilemma

by JOHN FONTE February 24, 2016 4:00 AM

Can he persuade conservatives that his immigration bill is really a reform?

What would a President Marco Rubio do about immigration? To attempt to answer this question, let us review the past, analyze the present, and prognosticate about the future. The core framework of the Schumer–Rubio immigration bill (S-744) of 2013 was first developed in the failed Kennedy–McCain legislation of 2005. For example, on amnesty, Kennedy–McCain proposed an immediate “Z visa” for illegal immigrants, while Schumer–Rubio granted immediate “provisional” status. Although technically on “probation,” the illegal immigrants were essentially granted immediate amnesty under both bills (including work permits and Social Security cards) before any guarantee of border security was put in place.

Chris Crane, the head of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) union, told Breitbart News that Schumer–Rubio was actually “weaker” than current law. There were over 1,000 waivers, which gave the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the power to bypass enforcement. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, which represents 12,000 federal employees, denounced Schumer–Rubio, declaring: “It was deliberately designed to undermine the integrity of our lawful immigration system.” Further, the ICE Officers Council stated: “The 1,200-page substitute bill before the Senate will provide instant legalization and a path to citizenship to gang members and other dangerous criminal aliens.” Moreover, the Congressional Budget Office declared that S-744 would not stop most illegal immigration. The CBO forecast that Schumer–Rubio would reduce illegal immigration by only one-third to one-half. And the bill would almost double legal (overwhelmingly low-skilled) immigration. This is a much larger increase than under Kennedy–McCain.

Former Inspector General: Powerful Democrat Women Standing in Way of Hillary Indictment

*A former Inspector General for the State Department says Hillary Clinton will never be indicted for her use of a private email server because there are four loyal Democrats standing in the way.

Former*Inspector General Howard J. Krongard says the current FBI investigation should be focused on how material made it from the classified email system, known as SIPRNet, to Clinton’s unclassified private server. “It can’t just jump from one system to the other. Someone had to move it, copy it. The question is who did that?” Krongardtells the*New York Post.

Krongard says Hillary’s top three aides–Cheryl Mills,*Huma Abedin, and Jake Sullivan–are facing “significant scrutiny” because they sent most of the material that wound up on Clinton’s server. Though it has yet to be determined how classified material wound up crossing from one email system to the other, Krongard suggests staffers emailing Hillary likely summarized what they had read elsewhere.

"She’s trying to distance herself from the conversion from SIPRNet to [the nonsecure] NIPRNet and to her server, but she’s throwing her staffers under the bus,” Krongard*tells the*Post. Indeed, when Clinton was*pressed about whether something needed to be marked classified in order to be considered classified on a Sunday news show, she replied that identifying such material was theresponsibility of*“someone down the chain.”

Even if the FBI decides Clinton holds the ultimate responsibility for creating the private server, “It will never get to an indictment,” Krongard*tells the*Post.*The decision to act on the FBI’s recommendation would have to pass through, “four loyal Democrat women.” Krongard is referring to Loretta Lynch and her deputies Leslie Caldwell and Sally Yates. In addition, Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s top advisers, could weigh in.

Exclusive: Federal Prosecutors Spell Out Criminal Case against Hillary Clinton in Whitewater Scandal

Exclusive: Federal Prosecutors Spell Out Criminal Case against Hillary Clinton in Whitewater Scandal

by*MICAH MORRISON8 Feb 20162,047

Hillary Clinton may or may not be indicted in the State Department emails scandal, but one thing is certain: she’s been to this dance before, facing possible criminal charges. Mrs. Clinton “may have been involved in a crime in 1986,” according to never-before-seen portions of an Office of Independent Counsel (OIC) memorandum in the Whitewater affair obtained by Judicial Watch.

The newly obtained document is an unredacted copy of a highly detailed April 10, 1998 OIC memo prepared for a key meeting to discuss the indictment of Mrs. Clinton. It is titled “Hillary Rodham Clinton: Summary of Evidence and Suggested Reading.”

In January, Judicial Watch published aredacted version of the memo*obtained from the National Archives and Records Administration under the Freedom of Information Act.

Today, the new, unredacted version of the memo—reported exclusively by Breitbart—fills in important blanks in the criminal case against Mrs. Clinton.

The entire text of the memo can now be pieced together from the redacted version released by the National Archives and the new, unredacted version, reported here for the first time.

The broad contours of the Whitewater case against Mrs. Clinton are well known. With Governor Bill Clinton running Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton leveraged her work at the Rose Law Firm into a series of transactions on behalf of a corrupt financial institution, Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, run by a longtime Clinton crony, James McDougal. Among the transactions was a document drafted by Mrs. Clinton to conceal a series of fraudulent loans that were used to deceive federal bank examiners.

The fraudulent loans were part of a land deal known as Castle Grande. Mrs. Clinton, along with her Rose Law Firm partner Webster Hubbell—later given a high-ranking post at the Justice Department by President Clinton—handled the Madison Guaranty accounts for law firm. Hubbell’s father-in-law, Seth Ward, also played a key role in the Madison accounts.

In the mid-1980s, federal bank regulators started taking a close look at Madison Guaranty and concluded that Castle Grande was a sham, a crime, and part of a pyramid scheme to enrich insiders and hide the S&L’s disintegrating finances. According to the newly obtained document, “Hillary Clinton and Hubbell concealed their involvement in Castle Grande.”

SUNDAY, FEB 28, 2016 04:00 AM MST -The case against Hillary Clinton: This is the disaster Democrats must avoid

You like what Bernie’s calling for, but you just don’t think he’s likely to win the general election, perhaps because “this country would never elect a socialist.” And even if he did win, you don’t think he’d be able to accomplish his goals, given how entrenched the GOP opposition is. Maybe you even think it’s already settled—that Hillary’s got the nomination locked up.

Here’s why going with that assumption—and backing Hillary in general—would be, in the words of Donald Trump, a disaster.

Contrary to conventional pundit wisdom, Hillary is not the stronger general-election candidate.

So far Clinton seems to have retained the status of favorite for the Democratic nomination. But there are strong signs that it’s Sanders who would fare better against the eventual GOP nominee.

Recent polling*shows Sanders doing better than Clinton against each of the Republican contenders. One can question the relevance of early-stage matchups such as these, but as Princeton’s Matt Karp recently noted in his eye-opening*piece*on Sanders and Clinton’s comparative electability:

We may be skeptical about the predictive power of these findings, nine months before Election Day. But it’s wrong to call them “absolutely worthless” … In a comprehensive analysis of elections between 1952 and 2008, Robert Erikson and Christopher Wleizen*found*that matchup polls as early as April have generally produced results close to the outcome in November.

Even much earlier “trial heats” seem to be far from meaningless. As partisan polarization has increased over the last three decades, there’s some evidence that early polling has become more predictive than ever. In all five elections since 1996, February matchup polls yielded average results within two points of the final outcome.

This video surfaced today combining video feeds from experts as to what’s really going on with Clinton and her Email scandal. According to the video she could be facing charges from a Misdemeanor with up to 1 year sentence all the way up to a 10 year sentence and a felony.

It could even go up to the President of the United States, the question is how could the President not know that emails he was sending to his Secretary of State were not over a secure line to a secure email server, secured by the top security professionals, but instead a private email server setup by a Clinton staffer?

Some people ignoring polls say that Sanders can’t beat Trump. Let me ask you this – please list one former President of the United States that won while serving jail time.

If the matter of Hillary Clinton’s electability and a Democrat beating Donald Trump for the Whitehouse, then you must start to ask yourself – what will Trump say about her scandal, and has anyone EVER won a Presidential race while involved in a scandal this big?

Obama: ‘I Certainly Have Not Contributed To’Dividing The Country

What planet is he living on?


President Obama said today during a White House joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he, Obama, has “certainly...*not contributed to” dividing the country,*reports the Daily Caller.

Obama said, “I’ve said at the State of the Union that one of my regrets is the degree to which polarization and the nasty tone of our politics has accelerated rather than waned over the course of the last 7 1/2 years.”

Agreed. And you were president for that time frame. Interesting coincidence, no?

Obama went on to explain who is at fault. Take a wild guess:

I do all kinds of soul searching in terms of, are there things that I can do better to make sure that we are unifying the country. But I also have to say… that objectively it’s fair to say that the Republican political elites and many of the information outlets, social media and news stations, talk radio, television stations have been feeding the Republican base for the last seven years a notion that everything I do is to be opposed, that cooperation or compromise somehow is a betrayal, that maximalist, absolutist positions on issues are politically advantageous, that there is a ‘them’ out there and an ‘us’ and ‘them’ are the folks who are causing whatever the problems you’re experiencing and the tone of that politics, which I certainly have not contributed to.

No, Mr. President, "objectively it's fair to say" that your radical anti-Americanism and your aim*to fundamentally transform*this country are to blame. It's not the fault of the vast right-wing conspiracy.*

He continued:

You know, I don’t think that I was the one to prompt questions about my birth certificate, for example. I don’t remember saying, "Hey, why don’t you ask me about that?"*"Why don’t you question whether I’m American or whether I’m loyal or whether I have America’s best interests at heart."*Those aren’t things that were prompted by any actions of mine, and so what you’re seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all of those efforts over a course of time creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive.

Questions about whether Obama has America's best interests at heart weren't prompted by any of his actions? Seriously? Sounds like someone is living in a river in Egypt.

GOP hawks declare war on Trump

Prominent Republican hawks are debating whether to hold their noses and vote for Clinton instead.


03/02/16 05:55 PM EST
Updated*03/03/16 03:10 PM EST

Donald Trump calls the Iraq War a lie-fueled fiasco, admires Vladimir Putin and says he would be a "neutral" arbiter between Israel and the Palestinians. When it comes to America’s global role he asks, “Why are we always at the forefront of everything?"

Even more than his economic positions, Trump's foreign policy views challenge GOP orthodoxy in fundamental ways. But while parts of the party establishment are resigning themselves or even backing Trump's runaway train, one group is bitterly digging in against him: the hawkish foreign policy elites, including many of those known as neoconservatives.

In interviews with POLITICO, leading GOP foreign-policy hands — many of whom promoted the Iraq War, detest Putin and consider Israel's security non-negotiable — said Trump would be a disaster for U.S. foreign policy and vowed never to support him. So deep is their revulsion that several even say they could vote for Hillary Clinton over Trump in November.

“Hillary is the lesser evil, by a large margin,” said Eliot Cohen, a former top State Department official under George W. Bush and a strategic theorist who argues for a muscular U.S. role abroad. Trump's election would be “an unmitigated disaster for American foreign policy," Cohen said, adding that "he has already damaged it considerably.”

Cohen, an Iraq war backer who is often called a neoconservative but said he does not identify himself that way, said he would "strongly prefer a third party candidate" to Trump, but added: "Probably if absolutely no alternative: Hillary."

In a March 1*interview*with Vox, Max Boot, a military historian at the Council on Foreign Relations who backed the Iraq War and often advocates a hawkish foreign policy, said that he, too, would vote for Clinton over Trump. "I'm literally losing sleep over Donald Trump," he said. "She would be vastly preferable to Trump."

Cohen helped to organize an open letter signed by several dozen GOP foreign policy insiders — many of whom are not considered neocons — that*was published*Wednesday night by War on the Rocks, a defense and foreign policy website. “[W]e are unable to support a Party ticket with Mr. Trump at its head,” the letter declared. It cited everything from Trump’s "admiration for foreign dictators” to his “inexcusable” support for “the expansive use of torture."

The letter was signed by dozens of Republican foreign policy experts, including Boot; Peter Feaver, a former senior national security aide in George W. Bush's White House; Robert Zoellick, a former deputy to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; and Dov Zakheim, a former Bush Pentagon official; and Kori Schake, a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and a former Bush State Department official.

Top Tech Giants, GOP Elites, McConnell, Paul Ryan Hold Secret Meeting on How to Stop Trump

Jim Hoft Mar 7th, 2016 11:32 pm —233 Comments

The political and tech elites have joined together to thwart the will of the people.

Top tech giants from Apple, Google, Napster and Facebook along with GOP elites including Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Ben Sasse and Kevin McCarthy met at a secret island resort off the coast of Georgia to plot how to stop Trump.

Sea Island is a private barrier island off the coast of Georgia. The island is home to the world famous Cloister Hotel.

The Huffington Post reported:

Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.

The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he “cannot support Donald Trump.”

Along with Ryan, the House was represented by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton (Mich.), Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) and almost-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), sources said, along with leadership figure Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.), Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) and Diane Black (Tenn.).

Philip Anschutz, the billionaire GOP donor whose company owns a stake in Sea Island, was also there, along with Democratic Rep. John Delaney, who represents Maryland. Arthur Sulzberger, the publisher of The New York Times, was there, too, a Times spokeswoman confirmed.

“A specter was haunting the World Forum–the specter of Donald Trump,” Kristol wrote in an emailed report from the conference, borrowing the opening lines of the Communist Manifesto. “There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated.”

Ditka calls Obama ‘the worst president we’ve ever had’

Former Bears coach Mike Ditka, who has repeatedly voiced his support for Donald Trump to the Chicago Sun-Times,*blasted President Obama during a radio appearance Thursday.

“Obama is the worst president we’ve ever had,” Ditka told hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernard McGuirk during an appearance on their morning show on WABC-AM in New York.

Ditka, who guided the 1985 Bears to a Super Bowl victory, questioned Obama’s skills as a leader.

“Barack Obama’s a fine man. I*mean, he’s pleasant,” Ditka said. “He would be great to play golf with. He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It*needs somebody that steps up front. We need somebody like Ronald Reagan.

“Every once in a while you’re*going to get punched in the chops. But you keep going forward. That’s all there is to it,” he added. “You know*it’s not always going to be a perfect situation, but to do what he does, there’s no leadership there. I*think that becomes very disgusting to me.”

Ditka also took shots at Democratic-favorite Hillary Clinton. When the show’s hosts played a clip*of Clinton declaring Republicans want to take America back to the “Jim Crow past,” a disgusted Ditka said that “filthy statement” *could make you “throw up.”

“If I*were to vote*tomorrow,” Ditka*said, “I’d*probably vote for Trump.”
