  • Trump Calls Hillary 'In a Certain Way, Evil'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    About to begin her word-asociation game about the other candidates with Donald Trump, Mika Brzezinski said "I'm scared to do this." Prescient on Mika's part. Because although Trump had been in a relatively light-hearted mood during his Morning Joe appearance today, things suddenly got deadly serious. When it came time to give his word on Hillary, and despite having been reminded that she had attended his wedding, Trump said: "in a certain way evil." Making clear it was no slip of the tongue, Trump repeated himself: "in a certain way, evil." Mika's "whoah!" in response probably spoke for a lot...

    In the UK, across Europe and as far away as Australia, protestors marched in unison in opposition to the Islamization of the west. In Birmingham in the UK, marches carried signs stating "Trump Is Right" acknowledging the proposed plan of the U.S. Republican presidential candidate to ban the influx or Muslim refugees until a reliable vetting program is in place. The international rally was organized by the group: PEGIDA - Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West, which was founded in Germany and has many branches across Europe and elsewhere.

    So much for a new strategy. Donald Trump dramatically bulked up his campaign schedule in New Hampshire this week as he faced criticism that he doesn't do enough retail politics. But with a snowstorm barreling down on the state, the Trump campaign canceled a morning town hall in Londonderry -- his only campaign stop in the Granite State scheduled for Friday, just days out from Tuesday's primary contest. "Big storm in New Hampshire. Moved my event to Monday. Will be there next four days," Trump tweeted.

    Donald Trump, his aura of invincibility shattered by Iowa caucus voters he once called “stupid,” is throwing a tantrum these days, convinced that Ted Cruz “cheated” and continues to maintain the untenable proposition that in any event he is a not eligible to be President of the United States. Cruz did not cheat in Iowa. Cruz supporters may have indeed cited to supporters of Dr. Ben Carson CNN news reports and tweets that Carson was skipping New Hampshire and South Carolina, so draw your own conclusions, but where were the Carson president captains to shepherd their flock?

Ted Cruz of bearing direct responsibility for the Affordable Care Act."Ted Cruz gave us Obamacare," Trump said at a Wednesday rally in Little Rock, Arkansas.The line of attack invoked the landmark health care law that is anathema to many conservatives. Cruz, for his part, has accused Trump of supporting Obamacare, too, accusing Trump as holding the same position on healthcare as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Trump's rationale for his claim is a little roundabout. It's based on the fact that...

    Donald Trump would "strongly consider" appointing Supreme Court justices as president to overturn same-sex marriage, the Republican presidential front-runner said Sunday. Courting evangelical voters in Iowa, Trump told "Fox News Sunday" he disagreed with last year's landmark ruling that legalized same-sex marriage because states should decide.

    In 1941, journalist Dorothy Parker suggested a gruesome parlor game you could play at your next dinner party, which she called "Who Goes Nazi?" As this game was supposed to be played before anyone knew what Hitler himself would go on to do, Parker clearly meant the "born Nazi" epithet as a standard political jab rather than the over-the-top insult it has become. And for that reason, the methodology with which she judged her various dinner party companions and found them worthy (or not) of the "Nazi" designation could be readily appropriated for modern usage, provided it was used to...

    So, looks like I got another prediction wrong. I wrote back in December that if and when Trump lost, he would claim that the vote was rigged. Incorrect. As it turns out, he ended up claiming that Cruz cheated. This is the single dumbest thing he’s done since he got into the race, including his decision to skip the Fox debate — which even he thinks might have hurt him. Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!— Donald J....

    Donald Trump is running a pretty successful presidential campaign saying that he wants to "Make America Great Again." But he seems to have very little interest in what exactly it is that makes America great. This paradox is very much on display when Trump talks about eminent domain, the authority given to government in the constitution to take private property for public use. Trump says, "Eminent domain is wonderful." The Fifth Amendment to our Constitution tells us: "No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for...

    On his radio show yesterday, Mark Levin rightfully blasted the media for spinning the Iowa caucuses. They are, he explained pretending that Marco Rubio was the winner of the night because he got a larger share of the vote than projected. He did. But that does not make him a winner, Levin said: Rubio finished third... which is exactly where the polls had him. Yes, he received more voters, but he placed as expected. As Levin pointed out yesterday, the real winner of the Iowa caucuses was Ted Cruz. Not only did he perform better than thought by finishing first...

    Donald Trump normally projects the image of a guy with only one gear: warp drive. But on today's Morning Joe, Trump made an interesting admission, saying that in Iowa, "I sort of went through the motions a little bit." According to Trump, he went less than flat-out in the Hawkeye State because he had been told he couldn't win, until a poll at the very end of the campaign indicated that he could. Note: there was an odd moment at the very beginning of the phone interview. When Mika Brzezinski began by asking "let's talk about Iowa. What happened?" there...

ElectionBettingOdds.com, which tracks probabilities based on actual wagers for candidates, shows support for Rubio spiked overnight from around 32% to 54.3%, putting him firmly in the lead of the Republican pack. Support for previous front runner Donald Trump was virtually cut in half, from just over 51% to under 25.6%. Ted Cruz, who actually won in Iowa, nudged up slightly from the 10% range to 13.3%.

So, what should the average voter do? First, like many others, I love the lessons taught by Ronald Reagan. He really was a beacon in the storm, and remains one now.

    On January 18, Jerry Falwell, Jr. welcomed Donald Trump to Liberty University to speak in the school's chapel. As the college president who wrote the "this is not a daycare" article that received so much national attention recently, I have been asked by the media if I would be next: Will I be inviting Mr. Trump to Oklahoma Wesleyan University to speak in our chapel service? My answer has been simple and brief. No, I will not. In selecting speakers for Oklahoma Wesleyan, party affiliation and political positions do not matter. Personal conduct, public statements, theological integrity and moral consistency...

    Two veterans groups said Friday they will be accept money raised by Donald Trump's campaign rally that was staged after the frontrunner decided to skip the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses. Other vet organizations said they were not so sure. Dick Marbes, president of the Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust, said in a statement to CNBC that Trump reached out after the event. "We have been contacted and informed that a donation will be made by the Donald Trump Foundation to support our mission," Marbes said. "While we are grateful for this support, it is our sincere...

    Is this a great primary season or what? Seldom before has the debate among Republicans -- and even among conservatives -- been so heated. Donald Trump has his die-hard fans, Trumpkins. Other conservatives are solidly behind Ted Cruz because many believe he is the most conservative candidate running. Others prefer Marco Rubio, mostly because they think he's the most electable of the relatively conservative candidates. Not only are these candidates having a go at each other -- with Trump leading the field by going nuclear on anyone who threatens his frontrunner status -- but their supporters do the same. To...

    British bookies see a banner month ahead for Donald Trump. The Republican presidential candidate is the "red-hot favorite" to win the Iowa Caucuses (Feb. 1) and the New Hampshire primary (Feb. 9), says Graham Sharpe, spokesman for William Hill PLC, a leading British bookmaker. William Hill has Trump as the 1-2 favorite in Iowa and the 1-4 favorite in New Hampshire. "The Trump bandwagon shows little sign of a slowdown," says Sharpe.

    Ted Cruz has crisscrossed Iowa, headed to all 99 counties and has aggressively targeted this state‘s evangelical voters. Jeb Bush hired a top Iowa operative and had 30 paid staffers to build his operation here, while saying last summer that he still hoped to win the Hawkeye State. And Marco Rubio has dropped more money on TV than any other candidate, culminating in a 30-minute advertisement he‘s launching in media markets across the state. But each of these candidates have something in common: They are bracing for a Donald Trump win in Iowa and planning for the aftermath.
  • Cruz Right, Trump Wrong On Ethanol

    It has been said that if we were getting so-called “alternative” energy from potatoes instead of corn, the first primary/caucus would be held in Idaho instead of Iowa. As it is, ethanol from corn in the first state where votes are actually cast in a presidential election has led to endless political pandering in support of a fuel that consumes more energy than it provides, is difficult to transport, reduces car mileage, can damage auto enegines, and damages the environment.

    There are still four people occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon. David Fry, Jeff Banta, Sean Anderson and his wife Sandy are still there with the FBI saying negotiations are going on around the clock. The four want safe conduct out and decided not to leave after the FBI arrested others like Jason Patrick who left the refuge with promises of safe conduct out. The imprisoned leader of the occupation, Ammon Bundy, has called for the occupation to end, but the FBI's conduct with people leaving is putting a roadblock in the way. The Pacific Patriot...

    Public Policy Polling ^ | 01/29/2016 | Tom Jensen
    PPP's new Iowa poll, conducted in partnership with Progress Iowa, continues to find Donald Trump leading in the state. He's at 31% to 23% for Ted Cruz, 14% for Marco Rubio, 9% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, and Rand Paul, 3% for Carly Fiorina, 2% each for Chris Christie and John Kasich, and 1% each for Jim Gilmore and Rick Santorum. Since we last polled Iowa two and a half weeks ago Trump and Cruz are the only candidates to see their support move by more than a couple points- Trump's seen a 3 point...

    Donald Trump's decision to boycott Thursday night's debate has officially paid off. While some speculated that the billionaire’s bizarre gamble would backfire, it is now clear that the odds of a Trump presidency have only improved over the past 24 hours. At 10:58 Thursday morning, Bill Kristol declared "Peak Trump" for the 11th* time this cycle.
