  • Report: Former Fox News chief Roger Ailes to prep Donald Trump for the debates

    08/16/2016 11:12:47 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 73 replies ^ | Maxwell Tani
    Former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes will prepare Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for the presidential debates, according to a Tuesday report in The New York Times. The Times reported that Ailes had transitioned almost immediately from his role as CEO into a new, informal job advising Trump as he prepares for the first presidential debate on September 26. The former Fox News chief made a name for himself in politics as a Republican communications adviser who helped prepare past presidential candidates including George H.W. Bush. Ailes resigned from Fox News amid an ongoing internal investigation into his...

    One of the 10 or 15,000 Donald Trump subdramas heading into the fall is the question of whether the Republican presidential nominee will participate in all three scheduled debates. It's usually taken for granted that major-party candidates will agree to the Commission on Presidential Debates' schedule, but there’s no law requiring it, and Trump has never seen a political norm he hasn't considered razing and building something gaudy over. And over the past couple of weeks, he’s laid the groundwork for not participating in the debates by suggesting that they are, in some nebulous way, a trap he can't agree...

    Johnson and one of his rivals, presumptive Green Party nominee Jill Stein, sued the commission last September, alleging violations of antitrust law and the First Amendment. Johnson and Stein are seeking spots on the all-important presidential debate stage this fall. But federal judge Rosemary M. Collyer threw out the lawsuit on Friday. In mid-September, the commission will add up five national polls and invite the candidates who are averaging at least 15% support. The first debate is scheduled to take place on Monday, September 26.

That claim was easy to disprove — the debate schedule was determined almost a year ago by a private group made up of both Democrats and Republicans.

    Hypocrisy. As you probably have heard, Hillary has changed her mind and is now opting not to debate Bernie Sander ahead of the California primary. The event was to be held by Fox News, sometime between now and June 7th. Fox is none too pleased, and they issued the following statement: “Naturally, Fox News is disappointed that Secretary Clinton has declined our debate invitation, especially given that the race is still contested and she had previously agreed to a final debate before the California primary.”

    On his Real Time show on Friday, HBO comedian Bill Maher referred to the U.S. military as a "mass murder machine" as he recalled that the reason he likes Bernie Sanders so much is because the Vermont socialist is the only presidential candidate who would argue against building a bigger military. A bit earlier, as he discussed with the New Yorker's Lawrence Wright the possibility of Saudi government officials being linked to the 9/11 attacks, Maher also made a crass reference to Tea Party conservatives -- whom he has mocked in the past as "teabaggers" -- by referring to Muslim...

    When Donald Trump’s political credentials as a Republican and/or conservative are challenged, he likes to remind people that Ronald Reagan was a Democrat once and managed to evolve over time. Except that Reagan’s conversion was real and he had two terms as governor of California to prove his bona fides before he ran for president as a conservative Republican. As Reagan campaign manager Stu Spencer and speechwriter Ken Khachiagin note in a Real Clear Politics piece: Yes, Ronald Reagan migrated from being a liberal Democrat to the gold standard for conservative Republicans. But Reagan’s views evolved over four decades’ worth...

    Wednesday while campaigning in Hershey PA, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)said his rival Donald Trump was “afraid of a debate” with him because he lacked “substantive solutions” on policy. Cruz said, “What I agree is that the Democratic process works, and Donald whines and complains when the voters reject him. The voters are going to decide. We’ve won five states in a row. Donald won his home state, which surprised nobody. And it’s the people — we are seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign.

    It would appear the Gov.

The latest example of that temperament was Trump’s call for a boycott of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, whose first offense against the Trump ego was to question him vigorously on his attitude and remarks toward women in the first Fox News-hosted debate.

    It only benefitted the front-runner. Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich did their best to underscore their policy acumen and to highlight Donald Trump’s lack of substance. It backfired. Neither his opponents on stage nor the debate moderators laid a glove on Trump. When Trump repeatedly called Putin a “strong leader” without refusing to place a value judgment on his leadership, neither moderator Jake Tapper nor his opponents on stage pressed him. When Tapper asked Trump about his violence-inciting rhetoric at rallies, none of Trump’s opponents called him out for refusing to disavow it. There is...

Thursday night's debate in Detroit marked a new extreme, however, as Lewandowski went directly onto the stage to...

But at the Detroit debate, Cruz was clearly the class of the field and it's clear that no one should count him out as the delegate race moves into its next phase. The delegate math is complicated, but the basic gist goes something like this: Donald Trump has a commanding lead at the moment, but it is not a given that he will reach the 1,237 threshold he needs to clinch a majority. Simply put, Trump has failed to break through the ceiling of support he's held since New Hampshire even...

After 2012, when liberal journalists routinely hijacked the party's 20 televised debates while cashing in on ratings and advertising revenue, the RNC resolved to change narrative-surrendering business as usual. There would be no more cable TV anchors belligerently taking President Obama's side while arguing with the GOP nominee (as Candy Crowley infamously did with Mitt Romney over Benghazi). There would be no more former Democratic operatives-turned journalists injecting their left-wing social agenda into GOP primary...

    Regarding tonight's debate, it was a good night for both Cruz and Rubio because it helped them change the narrative. Cruz has had a bad couple of weeks in that department, but tonight should guarantee he wins Texas and a lot of the delegates there. And frankly that's more important to him than winning close states elsewhere and here's why -- the proportional delegate allocation. For example, in 2012 Santorum won 11 states but only 245 delegates total, or just about 80 more than Ron Paul. The game is delegates, not states (see my previous post on this today). Cruz...

Even some liberal pundits are now saying that the nominee will most likely be either Trump or Cruz.
