  • Establishment Powers Build A Wall…Around Trump (jeb! and Kasich alert)

    10/25/2016 3:48:58 PM PDT · by longtermmemmory · 40 replies ^ | 10-25-2016 | staff
    It has been an increasingly caustic environment behind the scenes between Team Trump and GOP elites that has seen Republican power brokers effectively wall in the Trump campaign. GOP funding has been all but cut off, and so too has the institutionalized state-to-state ground game so critical in winning battleground states on Election Day. Donald Trump, and his millions of supporters, are truly on their own. The primary impetus behind this effort is said to be three-fold, coming in the form of House Speaker Paul Ryan, Ohio Governor John Kasich, and long-ago ousted, onetime GOP presidential front-runner, Jeb Bush. The...

    It is funny to watch. It is funny because this circus shows us just how connected the two parties really are when all is said and done. Paul Ryan acts as if he is taking the high ground in his denying support to Donald Trump, when in reality it has nothing to do with morality. The connection that Ryan and Clinton share is not moral but philosophical. Ryan and Clinton are both globalists. They both want to see one big global community that never puts one people over others. It is the new socialism. Breitbart reports Donald Trump made headlines...

    A few nights ago on Megyn Kelly’s program Chris Stirewalt made a clever comment that epitomized the blindness of political pros in government and the media to the stakes and significance of the 2016 presidential campaign. Noting Trump’s current unfavorable standing in the pre-election polls, Stirewalt concluded that this election is starting to look more and more like 1996 (or words to that effect). What Stirewalt presumably meant was that he expects Hillary Clinton to prevail on Election Day 2016 by a margin similar to Bill Clinton’s margin of victory in 1996. She might, although I doubt it. But even...

    A profile of Secretary of State John Kerry published Sunday in The New Yorker reveals that, 11 years after his election loss to George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry still believes he was robbed via systematic fraud. The article itself, written by David Remnick, focuses mostly on Kerry’s efforts to achieve peace and democracy in the Middle East, but it also dwells extensively on his presidential defeat more than a decade ago. “In 2004, when Kerry lost the Presidential race to George W. Bush, who is widely considered the worst President of the modern era, he refused to challenge the...

    Hillary respects nothing. This morning, Democrats are frothing at the mouth about Trump’s refusal to pre-emptively accept the results of a possibly-close election that hasn’t happened yet. This, they argue, makes him a dangerous insurrectionist, and unfit for the White House. Some, like New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait, have gone so far as to say Trump is actively working against American Democracy. Respect results?

    NEW YORK – NBC News has fired "Today" show host Billy Bush, who was caught on tape in a vulgar conversation about women with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before an "Access Hollywood" appearance. Bush was suspended at the morning show two days after contents of the 2005 tape were reported on Oct. 7. NBC and Bush's representatives had been negotiating terms of his exit before Monday's announcement. On the tape, Bush is heard laughing as Trump talks about fame enabling him to grope and try to have sex with women not his wife. Bush later said he was "embarrassed...

    A member of the Hillary Clinton campaign praised former President George W. Bush on immigration, according to leaked emails from campaign chairman John Podesta’s account. As the campaign tried to figure out whether to let former President Bill Clinton speak on immigration, his chief of staff Tina Flournoy took a minute to praise Bush. “43 is soooooo good on it,” Flournoy wrote in a March 2015, email. “Really good. At least he has been when I’ve seen him talk about it with 42.” The rest of the email chain is devoted to whether to risk Clinton talking about immigration and...

    Utah has been solidly Republican at the presidential level for the past 48 years. But the leaked tape of Donald Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent may have been the last straw for socially conservative voters in this heavily Mormon state. [Snip] Now, Trump's support in Utah could be collapsing, according to a poll conducted after the Trump tape was released. It shows both Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton drawing just 26 percent support.

The "Today" show Facebook page was also overtaken by hundreds of critical comments. Some viewers said they want Bush to be suspended or fired. NBC News had no immediate comment on that, either.

While it was initially designed for only the Clinton staff, it eventually became the overall message of the campaign and the main rationale why the incumbent President George H. W.

    Ronald Reagan’s worst mistake was named George H.W. Bush. Bush was the price that Reagan paid for the support of fake conservatives. And the price ended up being his legacy. Reagan had never felt good about naming Bush as his second, worrying about “turning the country over to him.” And he was right to worry. Once in office, Bush disavowed Reagan’s economic policies, which he had always hated, got deep into bed with the Saudis with disastrous results, and lost a winnable election to Bill Clinton. Reagan had handed Bush victory and Bush had brought Republicans utter defeat. Bush was...

    Eight years ago, President Obama pledged to wind down the war in Iraq and redouble efforts to defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan. “As president, I will make the fight against Al Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be,” he said during a campaign speech. “This is a war that we have to win.” Lasting peace, Mr. Obama said, would depend on not only defeating the Taliban but helping “Afghans grow their economy from the bottom up.” He added, “We cannot lose Afghanistan to a future of narco-terrorism.” Now, at the twilight of his presidency, these goals...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) denied Friday that George W. Bush won Florida in the 2000 presidential election, saying Al Gore won it and the Supreme Court elected Bush to the presidency. MSNBC reporter Hallie Jackson did not push back on Schultz’s claim. In fact, she agreed. Bush won the state by an official tally of 537 votes after a prolonged recount period that eventually went to the Supreme Court... "The Supreme Court elected the president," Schultz said. "Al Gore won the state of Florida in 2000, although not the presidency."

    JERUSALEM (AP) — In his landmark speech to the Arab world seven years ago, President Barack Obama warned that Israeli settlements on occupied territories were undermining hopes for peace. “It is time for these settlements to stop,” he declared. As Obama heads into the home stretch of his presidency, he leaves behind an unfulfilled vision. Not only did he fail to stop it, but he watched Israeli construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem thrive — despite repeated White House condemnations. According to Israeli government data obtained by The Associated Press, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pushed a wave...

    When chief of staff Andrew Card knelt down and told George Bush “America is under attack” 15 years ago Sunday, the words he whispered in the president’s ear in a Florida classroom launched what was supposed to be a planned, orderly response to a national emergency. But what followed instead was chaos, a breakdown in communication and protocol that risked international conflict and could have made Sept. 11, 2001, a still bigger tragedy. There were live nukes on the tarmac at U.S. airbases, a failed communications system, and a security protocol for the president and his potential successors — the...

    A lot of people aren’t happy that some Republicans have broken their pledge to the GOP. One of those people is RNC head Reince Priebus. Reince is warning those who don’t support Donald Trump they’ll need to watch their backs in the future. Meaning, we’re not going to help you when your election rolls around if you turn your back on us now. Makes sense – for the most part. From Newsmax: Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be “consequences” in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who don’t stick with their pledge to support the...

    On November 7, 2000, during the final hour and a half of voting in Florida's most conservative region, the Panhandle, 13 national television journalists, representing all six major outlets, asserted a total of 39 times that the polls in that region closed an hour earlier than they really did. Not once did anyone on ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News Channel, NBC, or MSNBC inform the audience that Florida has two time zones and two poll closing times. They hammered away that there was only one poll-closing time throughout the entire state of Florida: 7 p.m. Eastern. The polls in the...
