There is a reason Ben Carson is second in the lead…in the last debate, he was so different from all the other candidates, for a minute I thought Yoda had been reincarnated. I can just see Ben Carson saying..
“Do, or not Do. There is no in-between.”
How can you not like the guy after the fabulous entrance he made at the Prayer Breakfast in front of Obama? A black man, DARED to insult one of Obama’s favorite legacies? Watch Obama’s face in the video above,…clearly right from the start, Dr. Carson has sent a “OMG…this is NOT good.” look on his face. Then he gets…mad…then around 2.28, he is looking down at something, probably his cellphone…someone is ranting to him about what just happened, because before that scene, no black person in the world had DARED to stand up to Obama.
It was priceless! I’m sure Ben wanted to run for the Presidency before this speech, because why else was he talking about taxes and Obamacare? Right. You don’t get to be a neurosurgeon by being stupid.
In his book, One Nation, he goes into more detail about that famous moment:
“Many have commented that the president appeared to be uncomfortable during my speech, but I was not paying particular attention to him or his reactions, as my comments were really directed more at the American people than the people on the dais. At the conclusion of the program, the president approached me to shake my hand and thank me for my participation. He did not appear to be hostile or angry, but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him, I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”
Obama wanted an apology? The KING wanted an apology? Did you hear about that little narcissistic nibble on the news? Ha!
I plan on reading the rest of the book, among the other candidates books in the future…just because I know, most people don’t have the time, so I’ll let you know the highlights when I can.
If there is one thing Ben Carson is: It’s original. And what he says from here on in…is going to be great.
I usually try to stay away from politics on the weekends, but this was such a joy, I just had to post it.
Sarah is doing great here asking the questions. She’s on On American News Network, and looks fabulous with her American flag necklace and the flag waving behind her…
You go Sarah!
It’s so nice to see her, isn’t it?
Despite the fact that Jeb Bush went on the attack today, emailing Alabama republicans and making Donald Trump out to be some kind of baby killing, liberal nutcase, Donald Trump did a Trump Tsunami on the Friday night in Alabama….and it was shown on all the channels…ALMOST as if he was already President! When was the last time you can remember THAT happening? And he talked, and laughed, and was just a regular human being. They say you have to imagine yourself having a beer with the guy, and Donald does just that. .He REALLY knows how to sell himself…which is why he is going to stay ahead of the pack, because when it comes down to it, you have to sell yourself, and in this age of the camera and personality, the other guys, lets face it, in that department, they don’t stand much of a chance next to Trump.
What was really fun, was that as soon as his speech was over, NONE of the networks had any of their usual pundits on to interpret the message for you.
I think…they were all stunned. Not that we won’t hear how terrible he was on the Sunday talk shows. People love him.
Jeb Bush had this to say:
“Trump’s positions are out of step with the Alabama way of life,” reads the e-mail, which the Bush campaign shared with reporters.
Tell me, since WHEN does Jeb Bush know anything about Alabama’s way of life? When was the last time he was there? Who WRITES this stuff?
And speaking of stuff:
“Valerie sees Michelle and herself sitting on the boards of a handful of corporations, giving speeches for big bucks, writing books, and living large. Michelle has had the time of her life in the White House, and she doesn’t want to step down from that luxurious Air Force One lifestyle. Speaking to Steve Malzberg, Klein (a reporter) said he believes that such a move does not mean Michelle and Barack Obama are having marriage problems, but rather that Michelle wants to spread her wings after eight years of supporting her husband’s presidency.”
Right. How many of you out there believe that if you love someone, you go live in another country for a year, raise your hands?
Nobody Knows it, but it is being whispered that Michelle should get in the race…but I don’t know….that’s pretty far-fetched..but…uh…wait, I’m not letting it spoil my memories of Donald tonight. I wouldn’t even think about it if I was her…in fact, I hope she STAYS there.
It’s Saturday— Enough already.
I was SO excited to catch this Sarah Palin interview on Youtube, I just HAD to post it. According to rumors, Donald and Sarah Palin really love and respect each other and imagine how simply great it would be if Donald put her high up in his cabinet—oh boy–imagine that!!
I was on a website today, and most websites are all saying…Donald CAN’T win. The GOP won’t let him. It’s all rigged.
BUT…I can tell you that if he ran as an Independent, he would have Democrats flocking to change their votes. He would certainly get more black votes than Hillary. Nobody Thinks the only thing that will stop Donald’s momentum is an attack on the United States—which Obama seems to be trying desperately to make happen.
Nobody Wonders just how many other people are as excited by Sarah Palin’s enthusiasm as I am? It sure was good to see Sarah at her best…and I think that the Vice Presidency would not be enough for her talents. I would love Donald to fire that old dragon breath that replaced Holder and put Sarah at the Head of the Justice Department….just imagine what she could do.
And no, I’m still not watching FOX NEWS.
Britol Palin, who has had her share of vicious media attention, came out against FOX news on how they handled the GOP debates and Donald Trump:
“It’s official,” she wrote. “I used to use this blog to point out how liberals use the ‘outrage industry’ to manipulate people and keep their power. Now Republicans are just as bad.”
“We only have so many opportunities to hear from the fifty million candidates who are apparently running for President. And we get the Fox moderators asking questions that the New York Times applauds? (Nobody adds, not to mention Hillary Clinton.) Please. Let’s don’t use the Democratic ‘war on women’ talking points when we have ISIS to worry about,” she wrote.
She wrote, “Back in 2010, Chris Wallace joked about having my Mom sit on his lap during an interview. In 2011, Roger Ailes said, ‘I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.’”
“Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency,” Palin continued, concluding, “Let’s focus on winning the election, not winning accolades from the New York Times.”
One of the reason Fox was so successful was because of the fact that Roger ONLY gets really hot looking women, (who are smart) to report, and when you turn in to watch, your eyes catch the sexy legs, the beautiful faces, and the wonderful bosoms of the women. Sex sells. It always will.
Nobody also reports that Roger Ailes called Donald Trump rather quickly to try to patch things up didn’t he? Nobody Wonders just how MANY Viewers FOX lost. I turned Fox on this morning to see Trump being interviewed, but what did I see?
Daddy Bush was letting a vet of the Iraq war (with his steel leg) propose to his sweetheart with Daddy Bush watching, and Mrs. Bush standing behind. I turned it off.
If people turn off FOX, they won’t see the constant ads for the Bush Family. I still like the Judge,(I’ll just read his books) and Eric Bolling, but like many Americans, I’m getting my news elsewhere….at least for the next year.
FOX, has lost my trust.
HA! That’s what you get when your President hangs out with rappers and pole dancers! People want MORE!
I tried to stay away from it all, since it was clear that Megyn Kelly threw the first punch…and don’t tell me it wasn’t a punch. She spit out those words “Dog and Pig” with such venom, I was waiting for the green vomit.
When Trump said “Only Rosie” we all laughed, because we remember that fight. (So do these girls) And Rosie stated that fight too.
The rule here is, don’t start a fight with Donald Trump. He will reduce you to the lowest common denominator. And if you’re a woman, all bets are off. With Donald Trump, women truly ARE treated equally.
Obviously, this attack was a well-thought out plan with psychiatrists and political think tanks in war rooms in Rino offices…Jeb Bush has to be the nominee to the rich GOP, because let’s face it, every rich man on the planet has given to Jeb Bush. It’s all in the bag.
So..how DO they get rid of Donald?
I was thinking some kind of sexual scandal–or he had sex with an intern. (I even have to laugh at that thought.) Or…Hillary’s server was found in his New York office.
They know, his weaknesses, and since women will decide the election, (They think) that’s where they should attacked. Trump was expecting attacks from the other men running, not FOX news. He should have known better.
And the kick was swift. With that one blow, they expected the women of America to fold their cards. But…they are, once again, getting a big surprise.
Rush Limbaugh, saw it for what it was:
We all made a mistake,” Limbaugh said on his radio show on Friday. “We assumed that the orders went out to the candidates. But the candidates did not make one move toward taking Donald Trump out. The broadcast network did; the candidates didn’t.”
Limbaugh denied he is attacking Kelly for the question, but he said he knows “full well” nobody would dare ask a Democrat the same question or try to make Democrats justify their existence.
“But I’ve reported stories like the Mexican government is advertising in Mexico how to get on the American welfare rolls, how to get food stamps,” said Limbaugh. “The Mexican government is doing it all. Trump was right.”
“There isn’t anybody in the political class that has been discussing illegal immigration and sanctuary cities and the criminal element that’s coming across the border, and nobody doing anything about it, in either party,” Limbaugh said.
Michael Savage went further:
“It’s clear that Martha Washington (one of Savage’s nick names for her), Roger Ailes, and Rupert Murdoch are working for Hillary Clinton,” the pundit said on The Savage Report on Friday.
But it wasn’t just Kelly he railed against, but Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook was the main sponsor of the debate, hosted by Fox News, and Savage said that was because Zuckerberg wants to open the nation’s borders so he can get cheap labor for his website.
He complained that her “nostrils have become almost porcine” while she “snorts her insults at America.”
When have you ever heard of a man in favor of cheapening American wages and flooding America with illegal aliens buying a network during the opposition’s debate?” Savage said of Zuckerberg. “Well you just heard of it. What do you think the F stood for? Mark Zuckerberg joined forces with Fox News to undermine one Donald Trump and that was for one reason only: Zuckerberg is the greediest man in the history of the world. Zuckerberg doesn’t care who gets hurt, he just wants them in this country.”
When George Will said this morning that the GOP ADULTS in the party, should reign in all those who are fighting mad at the way Trump was treated, I turned it off. That man was talking to me.
Hey…you talking to me? You talking to me!
They don’t get it. Every candidate and pundit jumped on the Donald Trump bandwagon…when they SHOULD have been jumping on Obama’s Iran deal.
The biggest complaint by all the elite snobs was — “We don’t need a president who talks like that.”
And guess what? Donald isn’t apologizing. And why should he?
Neither is Jeb Bush.
“I’m playing by the rules of the game, the way it’s laid out,” he said of his PAC fundraising. “And if people don’t like it, that’s just tough luck.”
If that attitude is good enough for Jeb Bush, it’s good enough for Donald Trump.
If you want another President who is calm, cool, and collected, never attacks back, and smiles and waves….because that’s “Presidential”– keep the one you have in the White House. He’s got that “I’m the coolest man walking the planet, and I can lie, steal, kill, and cheat because of it!” down pat.
In the meantime, those girls need a spot on FOX. Maybe we’d watch it again.
The big news this week, was the great rise of Donald Trump. With each passing day, Trump has gained such a remarkable lead in the Presidential race, that the rest of the Presidential GOP candidates could only sit back and see their own presidential ambitions fading as fast as babies popping bubbles in a bubble bath.
So, the GOP candidates were all there tonight on the debate stage in New Hampshire…and by a wonderful twist of fate, were made to sit next to each other and listen to each other.
The looks on their faces said it all: You could see frustration, anger…hopelessness, and better than most Americans, the real leader was so far ahead, he just didn’t show up. I bet Jeb Bush wished he would have skipped this instead of Iowa. Jeb Bush skipped IOWA, but this was New Hampshire–it’s near Bush country. Jeb was leading there..for about 2 days.
I didn’t get to watch it all, but I did catch their closing speeches where they were asked to give a 30 second summation of why they want to be President.
Here’s my grades on their speeches:
Rand Paul: Rand, is pretty mad. He’s mad at Trump. He’s mad because in his mind there IS no contest as to who should be President. He did throw out a nice idea about being able to take the cost of college on your taxes, but then, if everyone is paying a flat tax, HOW does he do that? Rand is having trouble smiling these days. His final speech was not really convincing…mainly because he’s angry. He gets a C+
Marco Rubio: Rubio spent a LOT of time trying to convince everybody that amnesty that he signed up for, well he’s rethinking that. Despite his enthusiasm, and his tough talk on Iraq, he still seems green. Very green. His speech rated a…C
Ted Cruz: After watching Rand, I must admit, I didn’t think Cruz could muster much. But boy, I was surprised. Out of all the candidates he seems to sincerely love America. His speech was very Presidential— while many would consider it full of political platitudes, when coming out of his mouth, it ends up being uplifting and inspiring. And we have seen, that Ted is the one who stands up to Congress…so he’s easy to believe. I gave his speech an A. Best of the night.
Ben Carson: You get the feeling by far that Ben Carson is the smartest guy in the room. But his ending speech sounded more like a guy just having a conversation and being a teacher, which I think is his greatest gift. Ben is reaching for the stars and so let’s hope, he lands at least on the Moon. I gave his speech a nice B.
Scott Walker: What is it about this guy? I just can’t get enthused about him. Maybe he’s TOO cerebral. He talked mostly about HIS record and kept off what he would do for the country, which I don’t think he has a clue. He’s got his state down, but the world? He never attacks Washington D.C., which is why I don’t trust him. His speech was lame, I give him a C.
Rick Perry: Rick is VERY hard not to like. He is fun to listen to, and full of that good-old-boy Texan lovable personality that speaks America. But, Bush had that too, remember?
He talked about energy, putting forth his strong points. Rick’s speech, next to Ted Cruz’s, was the most fun of the night. I give his speech an B+. Although, most of us can’t believe that our best days are ahead of us. Not really…But he IS trying to get that last spot.
Bobby Jindall: Mr. Jindall is one of my favorites…I can picture him as President. He’s probably the ONLY governor that I would trust. Too bad the camera man gave him such a terrible shot for his speech. Was that on purpose? SURE! I gave his speech a C++…not quite lofty enough.
Lindsey Graham: Well. We need to GO to war, and kill ISIS or they will kill us. That’s his story. When he got to his speech he choked up, and couldn’t talk. REALLY? What is it with these Rino’s crying? His speech was so bad, I gave it a D-…and that’s only because he was crying.
Carly Fiona: The commentator tried to trip her up. Out of all the contenders, she does have the experience to deal with world leaders. I even think she would be more competent than even Sarah Palin, and that’s saying something. She has NOT given up, and good for her. I gave her speech a B+ She did great tonight.
Rick Santorin: Rick has matured, and seems to be getting better with age….but the media has ignored the guy entirely because he really is the MOST conservative of all of them. I gave his speech a B.
John Kasich: I have NO idea what he said. All I can do is get visions of his face, which reminds me of one of those charpoy dogs. I DO remember him saying he has been a ‘servant’ of the public forever, and that’s when I stopped listening to him. So, I’m not going to even grade him.
Chris Christie: The commentator’s question gave him a big punch, but Chris stood his ground. Still, none of us can forget him being buddy with Obama. His speech was not much. Christie already knows he doesn’t stand a chance….I think he’s already accepted it. I give his speech a D.
George Pataki: George sounded like he just said everything that Carly said. LOL! Everybody loves him it seems, but there you go, another politician…and from New York no less. Sorry, I don’t remember his speech. I must have had a brain freeze.
Jeb Bush: Boy, did HE mess up. When asked how different he was from his father and brother, he started to stammer and talk about how he had a Tee Shirt that said if you talked against his dad he would meet you outside and beat you up. The guy cut him short before he could say anymore.
Jeb, got a big F.
So, there you go, none of them are perfect, but there are a few gems.
At around 7.30 in this video, Bill Clinton says that he thinks X Presidents should be able to run for a third term. He keeps saying, “Not me of course” and you think, that’s absurd. But I have been saying that the Presidency…the office itself, is the dream job of men. To be the King of the world, and with the power of the Presidency NOW…you can bet that Bill Clinton, Obama, and both George W. and Daddy Bush DREAM of never having to leave the office. When you think of their addiction to power, Nixon in retrospect looks humble next to them all.
Here we see Obama expressing the wish: HE would like to stay President, because of course, he’s so good at it. But…those African leaders who refuse to leave, well, they should give it up, even though he doesn’t want to.
And by the way, Clinton’s whole speech in the first video points out that it’s ALL about global. Watch how he dances around the stimulus debacle, and watch how he basically admits that the BIG banks and corporations worked with big business to globalized the world and ALL that money into a few pockets, but…well…they just didn’t think about the damage that would do. They hadn’t figured that part out yet. So, see, it was good for some, just not for the little guys. They just didn’t see that ..no…somehow they missed it.
Is it ANY wonder in the world that the big corporations want the same people as President forever? Even if Obama become head of the United Nations, he will NEVER have the life he is living now.
Notice at the end of this video…Hillary’s plug?
Personally, I think they should get rid of the office entirely. Or limit them to having no power. Maybe let the Presidents be caretakers of the White House parties, where they can ONLY invite other country’s government officials to entertain. For that position they would have to be born IN America, and pass a drug and IQ test. They would still get elected, but the campaign would last no more than one month–two months tops. The long election cycle is all about propaganda and brainwashing the masses into accepting their fate. They want you to think that it was YOU that picked your president!
If Jeb or Hillary gets in, the rest of the country should revolt. (in my dreams)
We’d be better off with just a historical landmark for people to visit….because the perks and power of the Presidency of the United States it seems, no man can resist becoming a tyrant. At least not ones with the last name of Bush, Clinton, or Obama.
Maybe people think our country can survive these corporate/dynasties…but I’m, not so sure.
Can we? The next election, will decide.
Today was the first really hot day here in the Mid-West. Global warming is happening in just the right politically correct spots it seems. and Missouri somehow missed the global warming Obama buttcake report. The whole month of June in Missouri was so cool, we had to turn on our heaters at night, and walk around in warm socks.
I noticed it snowed in California, yesterday— In July.
So, my dreams of getting out in the hot sun was FINALLY going to happen. You can imagine how excited I was . I couldn’t wait to jump in the local pool. I was standing in line waiting to get in, and I noticed a big family of Spanish speaking people in front of me. There were at least 10 kids, and at $8.00 a head for just the kids, that’s $80.00. And about four adults. ($12.00) I didn’t see any money exchanged. They went in very happily…and somehow manage it without speaking a word of English. Immigrants, I have noticed, in just the last six months, have virtually flooded my little Missouri ‘city.’ None of them speak English. And they don’t have to. Our schools provide special translators for up to 41 languages. Shopping at the Wal-marts here is like walking around Miami International.
They don’t have to learn English anymore.
While I was standing behind this big family, I was thinking that the young white kids in America can’t find jobs, and some of them decided to not even have kids because they can’t even support themselves, and yet, the Mexicans are having dozens—-Because they don’t have to support them.
The citizens who live here and have jobs are supporting them.This is happening everywhere in America, and people are sick of it.
But back to the pool: BECAUSE some kid threw up in the pool yesterday, the main pool was closed. So I came home to the Sunday Cable news shows, which are almost as disgusting as the pool being closed down due to a bad taco…and low and behold, I was just as disgusted listening to bad taco’s on TV. (Why do I do this to myself?)And they were ALL attacking Donald Trump. You would have thought he bombed Pearl Harbor. Or…worse yet, attacked Obamacare.
The only ones so far, that haven’t attacked Donald Trump are Ann Coulter, Ted Cruz, and Carly Fiorina. That’s three out of…what? 335?
The smart people of America, know that that attacks are a result of Donald getting over 12,000 people to come to hear him talk in Arizona. Jeb Bush couldn’t attract over 12,00o people unless he was in Mexico City and promised them all free tickets to Disneyworld, so yes, our rich elite Rino’s in Washington are VERY worried.
What’s the main ‘talking point’? Trump is a “sideshow.” They think if they just keep repeating it, everyone will believe it.
Peggy Noonan was especially contrite. She trashed him by saying that he was some kind of bombastic oaf. Yes, Peggy the elite, who was all a ‘ga-ga’ about Obama. She didn’t change her love affair with Obama until well after his second election. But she worked for Reagan you know, so she is pedigree. She realizes that the people are angry, but Trump is just not a serious candidate.—-Says the woman who loved that serious candidate, Obama.
George W. and Bill Clinton had to get together to try to calm the mobs. The Ex Presidents are all telling us “not to get angry” and gee—Trump is going to spoil it for the Republicans who NEED the Hispanic votes.
Don’t they get it? They are telling the citizens of America that they care more about the Hispanic vote than they do the American vote. But no…they don’t. Jeb expects us all to work longer hours because there are all those little Hispanic mouths we will have to feed. The GOP can no longer count on their base to vote for them. Especially if they run Jeb. Their message is whites will be the minority so they should just shut up and forget they even LIVE here, or their parents and sons and daughters died in wars to keep the country in liberty. The fact is…there are STILL a lot of white people who are sick of being told they are racist, selfish, greedy, and FAT, while our politicians put us all down daily.
We BUILT this country, damn it. As Ann Coulter points out, we were colonists, not immigrants. This is NOT Mexico! (Okay, they took California back…) And we don’t want you to kill us all off with Obamacare either.
Yes, we ARE angry you elite snob media pundits! And we’re also mad that you’re not. We know you all go home to your big mansions in Chevy Chase and Georgetown. You could care less about any of us out here in the heartland.
Peggy did admit one thing: Since the elite GOP couldn’t defeat Obama after his first terrible term, we privilege white people put republicans BACK into power in 2010. Every single candidate ran on repealing Obamacare. They got in. They did nothing. And they let Obama break every law. They lied. Only ONE man stood and tried, and the rest of the party beat him to a pulp for it. Ted Cruz has not quite got over that. He did not fight back. He simpered a bit, and went quietly.
Is it any wonder we love a man who tells them all to get lost?
And aren’t we in the same boat as Greece? The Greek people WANTED out of the EU. The Greek people VOTED no.
And the one man they trusted to walk away from the EU..changed his mind.
They……….. were………… betrayed.
Less than a week after they triumphantly gave international creditors a bloody nose by rejecting a harsh austerity plan, angry and bewildered Greeks are left wondering how they now find themselves swallowing an even worse deal.
“I voted ‘No’. And of course this new proposal doesn’t correspond to that ‘No’,” Vassilis Sika, 20, who is unemployed, said in Athens.
“I feel like a slave. They do what they want, and we can’t participate.”
How many people feel just like Vassilis? (My hand is up.)
So, do we join Donald in Sparta?
Or Greece in Athens?
“Independence Forever.” Those were the last words spoken to a reporter by John Adams on the day he died, when asked what he wanted to tell the world on July the 4th. They weren’t the last words he spoke…his last words were “Jefferson still lives.”
Quite a remarkable statement considering some of the utterly deceiving and cruel things that Thomas Jefferson did to John Adams during his lifetime. Like when he hired a newspaper reporter to say vile and vicious lies about John during the election. Neither John Adams or Thomas Jefferson wanted the new country to split into two political fractions, but they did—-and it started in their lifetimes. But–there were a few times when a third party tried to break through.
There have been 11 Presidential elections where a candidate ran on an Independent ticket, Ross Perot being the most famous one. Mr. Perot was blamed for ‘ruining’ the GOP chances in 1990, and this put Bill Clinton in. Remember that?
They made Ross Perot out to be insane. But, Ross was right. NAFTA lead us down the road of all the jobs going out of the country, and the middle class disappearing. Clinton passed NAFTA, Bush passed the North American Union and it’s been downhill since then. Both Bush and the Clinton’s work for ‘globalization”…which is all about Crony capitalism. That alone has been the biggest factor in destroying the middle class.
America is now finally tired of both parties…and it’s a fact, that there are now more Independent voters than Democrats OR Republicans. But..we have no choice at the voting box. You either vote Democrat OR Republican. We have no ‘third’ party to vote for. Don’t like either one of them? Tough. Your vote then, doesn’t count. . Basically, they have rigged the system.
Both parties have made sure that another party cannot rise up against them, so Donald had no choice–he had to run as a Republican.
Despite all they are throwing at him, in GOP polls, Trump is running second, (Of course he is, Jeb has been in first from the start which shows you how you can’t believe in polls.) In the democratic polls, he is leading:
The democrats are loving this. Despite the fact that Bernie Sanders is drawing much bigger crowds than Hillary, and most of the democrats don’t really want her, they stand behind her 100 percent. The republicans go after each other, but you NEVER see that happening with the Democrats.
Mitt Romney is having a nice sleep over for Rubio and Gov. Chris Christie. Of course, Trump in all fairness, already has given his opinions on the whole lot of them–they almost had to strike back.
The Bush operators said this:
“Donald Trump is like watching a roadside accident,” Ari Fleischer, a former spokesman for George W Bush, told Politico. “Everybody pulls over to see the mess. And Trump thinks that’s entertainment. But running for president is serious. And the risk for the party is that he tarnishes everybody.”
(Nobody thinks: The Bushes are not tarnished? The GOP is not tarnished? The GOP is tarnished every time they give in to Obama.)
Jeb Bush said this:
“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think. No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders – everybody has a belief that we should control our borders. But to make these extraordinarily ugly kind of comments is not reflective of the Republican Party. Trump is wrong on this.”
To which Trump said this:
“Today, Jeb Bush once again proves that he is out of touch with the American people,” Trump said in response to Bush’s words. “… he doesn’t understand anything about the border or border security. In fact, Jeb believes illegal immigrants who break our laws when they cross our border come ‘out of love.'”
Ann Coulter says this:
“If Rubio or Jeb gets the nomination, it’s going to be President Hillary and expect a full Supreme Court of Ruth Bader Ginsburgs. I don’t think either will get the nomination, but I am sure neither of them will become president.”
And Ken Crow, leader of the Tea Party said this:
“Americans are sick and tired of corrupt government and career politicians. He will straighten out the economy and defend our borders. Americans want a John Wayne right now, someone who’ll be a champion of our country.”
Ted Cruz said this
“I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need to address illegal immigration,” the Texas senator said on NBC’s Meet the Press in an interview that aired Sunday. “The Washington cartel doesn’t want to address that. The Washington cartel doesn’t believe we need to secure the borders. The Washington cartel supports amnesty and I think amnesty’s wrong, and I salute Donald Trump for focusing on it. He has a colorful way of speaking. It’s not the way I speak, but I’m not going to engage in the media’s game of throwing rocks and attacking other Republicans. I’m just not going to do it.”
The bad news is: The established Washington GOP Rinos will stop at nothing to destroy Donald Trump. They will keep him off the ticket at all costs.
There will be no “Independent” or “Write in for President–Trump has to get the nomination.
And that in itself…is about as high a mountain as any Independent thinker can climb.
Can you call Donald Trump an Independent Thinker? Yep. As we have seen, nobody tells Donald Trump what to think or what not to think. He is not influenced or afraid to stand up to his own party.
America wants her Independence Again. Have we finally come, full circle?
The fact that Greece’s economy is collapsing (Oh, and we forgot to tell you, Puerto Rico’s is too) got pushed onto the back burner today because the big man, the ponderous pontifical pontoon of New Jersey, Chris Christie, announced his run for President in his old high school gym. And what a melodramatic oration it was—the fat boy of New Jersey made it to the top.
And he did it all by being a typical politician. He speaks well. He looks like he will get things done. The speech was the same old song…”I will represent the People!”
Right. And my grandmother is still alive and working for Hooters.
Christie let it be known that he wasn’t going to mess around: His message was, crooks have taken your social security, and therefore, it’s broke. But I’m the only guy who is going fix it. I will do what’s right, not what’s popular and therefore, I’m the man to save the country. You will have to get less, and work longer…that’s just the fact folks, so belly up your money.
Uh…we already have one of these “my way or the highway” buffoons in the White House, which was Christie’s message.
While many people are knocking Donald Trump, compared to Chris Christie, Donald is mellow. I’d take his “You’re fired” any day of the week to Christie’s “Shut up!” I have visions of Christie telling the American people on a daily basis, “SHUT UP! I will TELL you how it’s going to be!”
Christie’s sight has always been for the Presidency. His speech at the Republican Convention was all about HIM…not Romney. Everybody was going “Huh?” What’s he talking about? I thought he was going to praise Romney? Truly it was a slap in the face. And then when he came out embracing Obama right before the election, many people thought THAT lost the election for Romney. If Christie couldn’t stand by the conservatives, and stay away from Obama for one more week, then what?
It was a major slap in the fact to Romney.
It was all about Christie. To us, and in retrospect, Christie knew he could destroy Romney, but then that’s good, because running against Obama in 2016 would be great for him. And that was his plan.
It was a selfish move for the country. But come on..the guy has a HUGE appetite. He wants the big banana. He wants it all….and he’s foaming at the mouth for it.
Personally, I think the democrats will stay off him, because at heart, he’s a New Jersey boy: And what do you think of when you think of New Jersey?
Corruption. Mafia. Union…thugs. Men who push their weight around and are used to getting their way.
That’s Chris Christie.
At first, we were all amazed at his brazenness.
Now, he’s just another schoolyard bully.
Like I said, we already have on bully in the White House. Why elect another?
Here’s a question to ponder: Why in the world, would anyone want to spend millions, (in a few cases billions) of dollars just to become President? The job pays…$400,000.
Sure: There are the obvious perks: The best chef in the world, Air Force One, anything in the world you want is yours for the asking. Power, money, control, your place in history—but then again, think of the job? Who in their right mind would want that job?
Is it me? Or is the fact that so MANY people are running this year a bit–excessive? Surely they all know that the more that get in the race, the less chance they might have of winning. That’s not stopping any of them.
That question has been bothering me. Most of us are very pleased to see so many likable candidates reaching out to the American people for support. Everybody knows—- unless you are a Woody Harrison look-a-like surfer and living on welfare, that we are heading for a collapse…of some kind. If the Iranians don’t attack, then there’s Russia, or China, and it’s not just the Syrians running out of their country–according to Alex Jones, ALL the billionaires are grabbing what gold they have and moving to their New Zealand bunkers. Even Texas wants it’s gold back from the Feds.
The rich rats are jumping off the ship in droves, so to speak.
But back to the question: Why are so many running?
Many seem very sincere: Among those Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Carson, and Fiorina.
But Huckabee? Santorum? Graham? Really?
These people want that job BADLY. You can hear it in their voices. For instance, watch in this fabulous speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition, how Carly Fiorina is fighting back to get a place on the debate ticket, which is democracy at its best don’t you think? (Okay…that was supposed to be sarcastic.) She is going gangbusters (the speech was great: Start at 10.00, and if you have little time, go ahead to 20.00 the ending is brilliant.) but the “polls’ could kick her out of the debates.
Sorry America….WE decide the polls. (You know, the rich and powerfully paid.)
The GOP decides whether you are ‘popular’ enough to be in the debates?
People are so MAD at politicians they could spit. So therefore, Trump and Fiorina look to be the only two business candidates, which to many, gives them an advantage.
And Trump is trying to eliminate her (who is his best competition) by saying she lost big in California.
To a CONSERVATIVE…that’s a badge of honor. California doesn’t want her? She must be doing something right.
But here’s a thought…dare I speak it? If I would put myself in their place…IF the world is headed for WW III, or a total economic collapse..(read the web, it’s EVERYWHERE.) There would be NO better job of the planet to have than to be the President of the United States.
So, one must honestly ask: Is this race also about sheer survival?
Think of it: If you were President, with all the thousands of people protecting just you alone, and your family, you WOULD survive, even if the whole planet went under.
You might have to stay out of the sun in your extra luxurious hidden bunker for a few years, but most people would be happy to be there.
Let’s see…what would their bunkers look like?:
Cruz? No, he really seems sincere about it…I can’t put him up there. But his dad’s presence alone would make everybody else want to be there.
Paul? His own father is trying to warn the world that it is coming. They could sit in the bunker and say, “We TRIED to warn them.”
Rubio? Not sure…what did Jeb Bush show him? We don’t know. But Rubio would probably start a good re-population program of little Rubio’s…there would be a lot of future kids.
Carson? Carson is NOT stupid….at least he wouldn’t need a doctor.
Huckabee? Oh yes, he wants in that bunker. And I’m sure he already has a bunker just in case, with a concert hall.
Graham? Hell yes. I’m thinkin….The whole Bunny Ranch.
Fiorina? She would probably be busy working on a NEW America the whole time.
Walker? He’s a question mark to me. They keep him off the TV pretty much..Who IS this guy? Is he the wild card?
Trump? As much as I like the guy, he would definitely want that power to have his whole family protected. To him it would be a no-brainer. He would redesign whatever bunker Obama has designed on the first day, with the Trump lettering on all the bunker towels. Everybody would be afraid to use them.
Should we all be so cynical to think that ALL these people running truly want to save America? Every one of them is selfless?
Ha ha! Does Bill Clinton like to use oblong objects on young interns in hallways?
Anyway, as we watch Obama travel the world playing golf, you have to wonder…
When is the executive order coming to suspend the 2016 Presidential election? Is he trying to cause a massive attack in order to keep himself in power?
Scary thought isn’t it? (Scarlett O’Hara says: I just won’t think of that today..I’ll worry about that tomorrow!)
If the world is as bad as we are all reading…
Then Obama won’t even have to make a phone call…all he will need is his pen….and his putter.
And probably…his favorite pizza maker from St. Louis.
–How COULD the GOP be more clueless. Jeb Bush just did a “slow jam” with Jimmy Fallon, and notice…how stupid his handlers were.
Jimmy Fallon AND the black guy behind him…all they did was make sexual innuendo jokes. And Jeb played along?
How stupid is this guy? Or…how desperate?
That did NOT happen with Obama. With Obama the black guy singer, AND Jimmy Fallon, sang about pushing Obama’s agenda and blaming the GOP Congress.
Now, notice how they treat Jeb.
They made Jeb Bush look like a fool. And yet, somebody at the Bush organization thought this was a good idea?
Anyway, here’s Jeb…now compare…the subtle lack of respect.
It’s a funny skit, but do you think the Bush organization even gets the fact that they are very cleverly being mocked? Master…bater?
Well…HE DID IT!
And boy, did he send some mighty big shock waves through the party-controlled media.
After his speech, FOX sort of just pushed off talking about it, and CNN didn’t even mention it.
Rush Limbaugh said he laughed all through it.
I thought it was a great speech. But then, who am I? Just a Nobody…sorry Rush. For all the great founding documents (and I am of course as proud of that as any) the REAL reason America became so great is because of the great wealth we created from the start…and Donald is right. America needs to get rich again.
Maybe Rush should get off the golf courses too, and look around.
This vast land…gave the simple man who came over from Europe…all he needed to have to build, to invent, to create, to exceed, to become the biggest winners on the planet.
And our politicians, have taken all that away. Year by year. Inch by inch. They are choking us…and Obama is daily shaming us.
Donald showed….REAL passion. Everybody else looks like they rehearsed for months just to say a simple line off their notes.
Okay, it’s no secret I like Donald….and want to know something else? I’ve never seen his show…but I HAVE read his books…and he is the real deal.
Now, let’s see what all the other guys have to offer..right?
