  • Byron York: Why Trump attacked Martinez

    05/31/2016 7:21:25 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 47 replies
    Many observers were mystified when Donald Trump attacked New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. But the story was really very simple: Martinez hit Trump, so Trump hit back. *snip* The Trump-Martinez bewilderment focused on four factors: Martinez is Hispanic, she's a woman, she's a Republican (head of the Republican Governors Association), and she's popular. "I think it sent all the wrong signals," said Newt Gingrich, who has generally been pro-Trump. "You particularly don't want to see your candidate who needs to...get stronger with Latinos, and stronger with women, attack a Latina woman Republican governor." *snip* Trump has made a principle...

    Below are my picks of the five people most likely to wind up sharing a ticket with Trump. These rankings are based on conversations with Republicans, a study of Trump's public comments about the various people in the VP mix and plain old intuition. 5. Joni Ernst The senator from Iowa has a very bright political future ahead of her. Ernst emerged as a surprising star of the 2014 Senate class with a sterling resume (military background, time spent in state legislature, etc.) and a gift for communicating.

  • Behind Mitt Romney’s Increasingly Lonely Challenge to Donald Trump

    05/28/2016 2:55:54 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 87 replies ^ | Monica Langley
    Mitt Romney’s advisers begged him not to go to war with...Trump. After he decided to go ahead, Mr. Trump dismissed him as “lightweight” and “failed candidate.” This week, Newt Gingrich called him “pathetic.” Mr. Romney, sticking to his guns, has become a rare figure in American history—a former presidential nominee openly defying the man succeeding him as his party’s standard-bearer. Sitting at his home on the Pacific Ocean last week, Mr. Romney reflected on the waves he created by attacking Mr. Trump, how his family helped persuade him it was the right thing to do, and how he increasingly finds...

    Just over a month before Slovakia will take the rotating presidency of the European Union, Prime Minister Robert Fico claims that Islam has no place in his country. “”Islam has no place in Slovakia,” Fico told media on Wednesday night saying that the problem of the migrant crisis was not, “that migrants come, but that migrants change the character of our country,” and continued, “we do not want the character of this country to change. Let’s be honest and say that will not happen in Slovakia,” Der Standard reports. The Slovakian Prime Minister has made similar comments in the past...
  • Donald Trump outsources campaign operations to RNC

    Donald Trump said Thursday that he plans to outsource key aspects of his presidential campaign to the Republican National Committee. Trump's shoestring operation was good enough to win a primary, succeeding on his ability overwhelm opponents by dominating the new cycle. But Trump Tower is woefully unprepared to take on Hillary Clinton, lacking any semblance of a sophisticated field or digital program. The RNC has spent the last three years building, from scratch, a modern voter turnout that was always intended to serve as the foundation for the eventual 2016 nominee's campaign infrastructure. That includes 287 paid staff in 11...

    And while the billionaire has been reluctant to discuss the U.S. relationship with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), he's previously expressed an openness to halting oil purchases from Saudi Arabia and other Mideast allies if they don't deploy their own ground troops to fight Islamic State militants. But Trump's recent correspondence with North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer suggests he's finally gearing up to offer detailed insights about his energy policy agenda. Cramer recently delivered a four-page memo to the Trump campaign containing what he believes is an "all of the above, America-first energy message" that the billionaire...

    Paul Manafort, a top aide to Donald Trump, said the presumptive Republican nominee is unlikely to pick a woman or minority for the position because "that would be viewed as pandering, I think." In a lengthy interview with the Huffington Post, Manafort also said Trump's selection needs to be well-seasoned in politics. "He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn't want to do. He sees himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO," Manafort said. The veteran political operative suggested that the highly anticipated choice should...

    Really interesting stuff from National Review's Eliana Johnson, whose latest campaign dispatch sheds light on just how close Newt Gingrich has become with the presumptive Republican nominee -- and how hard the former House Speaker is said to be lobbying behind the scenes for a spot on the ticket. Are you ready for Trump/Gingrich 2016, America?

    Throughout the Republican primaries, pundits and pollsters repeatedly told us he’d peaked, that his most recent outrageous statement was his downfall, that he was viewed as so unlikeable he didn’t stand a chance of getting the nomination. But in my travels around the country I’ve found many who support him precisely because of the qualities he’s being criticized for having. A Latina-American from Laredo, Texas, tells me she and most of her friends are for Trump because he wants to keep Mexicans out. She thinks too many Mexicans have come here illegally, making it harder for those here legally. A...

    A senior Egyptian forensics official says human remains retrieved from the crash site of EgyptAir flight 804 suggest there was an explosion on board that may have brought down the aircraft. The official is part of the Egyptian investigative team and has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn't authorised to release the information. He says all 80 pieces brought to Cairo so far are small and that 'there isn't even a whole body part, like an arm or a head'.

    More evidence is arising to show that the pilot of Flight 804 went suicide. People ask: if indeed the pilot went suicide ‘Muslim Kamikaze style’, why plunge the aircraft loaded with mostly Muslim passengers into the sea and how does that make any sense from an Islamic perspective on Jihadi martyrdom? Answer: everything. Shakeer’s [Flight 804's pilot] link to Amr Khaled, just like Shah’s link with Anwar Ibrahim should raise some serious alarm bells. Both Ibrahim and Khaled are linked to their love to the Muslim spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. Anyone can click to see the man is a...

"Oh, boy," readers of The New York Times thought when they picked up the Sunday paper and read that opening line of a story on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Here comes good stuff: hot, leggy models getting out of their clothes, sex, lust, bodice ripping, pretentious pawing, aggressive coupling, runaway desire and maybe drugs and damnation, all set under the palms at Mar-a-Lago, the Trump estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

However, he said he would be prepared to meet Trump if he came to Britain ahead of the U.S. election.

The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said Corker will be meeting Monday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Krauthammer used a hypothetical pot of $100 in casino chips to make his point, putting $25 on Corker, $20 on former Sen.

    American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson and the Republican Jewish Coalition are said to be “laying the groundwork” for a visit to Israel by presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, ahead of the party convention in July that is expected to see the businessman formally claim the nomination. The Guardian newspaper on Friday night quoted three conservative sources “with strong ties to Adelson,” who said that the casino mogul has pushed the benefits of a visit to the Jewish state. “I’m sure Sheldon suggested the trip,” the paper quoted a conservative donor close to Adelson as saying. Planning for the visit is...

    The House of Representatives passed a defense budget that would make $450 million in aid to Pakistan contingent on the nation doing more to stop a militant terror network and calls for the freeing of an imprisoned doctor who helped the CIA find Usama bin Laden. The $602 billion National Defense Authorization Act passed by the House late Wednesday calls on the Muslim-majority nation to crack down on the infamous Haqqani Network or lose aid. It also included a “sense of Congress” that Dr. Shakil Afridi is an international hero and calls for his immediate release from prison. Afridi is...

Trump called on Friday for an end to gun-free zones in the United States and accused Hillary Clinton of seeking to let violent criminals out of prison, putting law-abiding citizens at risk, as he accepted the endorsement of the National Rifle Association at its annual convention. Mr. Trump said that the November election would be a referendum on the Second Amendment and asserted that Mrs. Clinton, his likely Democratic opponent, wanted to abolish the right to bear arms. “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment candidate ever to run for office,” he said at the N.R.A.’s...

Now, as the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee, Trump is beginning the most consequential interview process of his lifetime: choosing a vice president.

    Trump, and his businesses, appear to have done very well in the past year. If anything, the improvement looks all the more impressive, since the $557 million that was booked in the the most recent period was generated over a shorter period—16 1/2 months versus 18 1/2 months. The robust rise didn’t result from developing new ventures or properties. His holdings are practically identical to roster in the past report. The big buckets touted in the release are revenues at his golf courses and hotels, sales of condominiums, and fees for managing condo, office buildings, not to mention a famous...

    When it comes to Hillary Clinton saying she would put Bill Clinton in charge of economic issues in her administration, Donald Trump has a few theories as to why. "I don't know. Maybe he'll bring the 'energizer' with him," Trump said on "Fox & Friends." Co-host Steve Doocy asked, "Who's the 'energizer'?" Trump previously used the term in a tweet on Wednesday. Former Secret Service agent Ronald Kessler wrote that agents gave Clinton's mistress that nickname, though Trump did not explain, going on to hit the former president for signing NAFTA and causing the boom in subprime mortgages that led...
  • Clinton grapples with Trump's ability to stay in spotlight

    05/19/2016 12:16:13 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 56 replies
    Donald Trump kept himself planted firmly in the political spotlight this week with one headline-grabbing move after another — launching a social media defense of his treatment of women, listing possible Supreme Court nominees, rapidly declaring an Egyptian plane crash an act of terrorism. His likely general election opponent, Hillary Clinton, seemed content to hang in the background. But Clinton's stay-above-the-fray attitude masks unresolved questions that have gnawed at her campaign since Trump virtually locked up the Republican nomination. How can the wonkish Clinton counteract Trump's finely-tuned ability to command attention? Can she win the White House by letting Trump...

    Everything. Everything has been turned upside down. Trump keeps taking kidney punch after kidney punch in the media and just keeps on blowing through stop signs with no sign of slowing down. Meanwhile, Hillary will still get the nomination thanks to winning larger states and the delegates that go with them, but even her most strident supporters will admit there’s absolutely no wind at her back going into the general, particularly with the threat of an ugly revolt at the Democratic convention looming in Philadelphia this summer. But Trump continues to climb. And it’s not because of a bold economic...

Rep.

    Donald Trump has reason to be reluctant to release his tax returns. In a New York Times piece about Ben Rhodes, President Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Rhodes cynically explains that today’s journalism consists of young people whom he flat-out describes as ignorant. “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old,” Rhodes said, “and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.” What do 27-year-old reporters know about how wealthy big-business people file their taxes? In the real world, moguls like Donald Trump hire accountants and tax attorneys...

    When American companies moved manufacturing to China, it was all about cost. China’s wages were among the lowest in the world and its government provided subsidies and turned a blind eye to labour abuse and environmental destruction. Things have changed. China’s labour, real estate and energy costs have increased to the point that they are comparable to some parts of the US. Subsidies are harder to get and Chinese labour is not tolerating the abuse that it once did. China is now a more expensive place to manufacture than Indonesia, Thailand, Mexico and India, according to Boston Consulting Group. Add...
