  • McCain Getting Fenced In by Trump

    No dynamic better embodies the internal conflict roiling the Republican Party today than the squeeze Trump is putting on McCain, the original independent and maverick of the party. On a larger scale, nobody has been a more consistent voice on American foreign policy for the GOP than McCain, whose views on conflict, diplomacy, and America's role in the world Trump has largely rejected. In McCain's home state of Arizona, the latest Rocky Mountain Poll shows Kirkpatrick tied with McCain at 42 percent, with 16 percent of voters still undecided. But the same poll shows the biggest hurdle between McCain and...

    DONALD J. TRUMP RESPONSE TO LINDSEY GRAHAM "I fully understand why Lindsey Graham cannot support me. If I got beaten as badly as I beat him, and all the other candidates he endorsed, I would not be able to give my support either. Every time I see Lindsey Graham spew hate during interviews I ask why the media never questions how I single-handedly destroyed his hapless run for President. As a candidate who did not receive 1% in his own state - compared to my victory at nearly 40% with many others in the race - he has zero credibility....

    Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday continued to criticize Rep. Paul Ryan, denying the Speaker’s assertion that he “inherited” the Republican Party mantle. “Paul Ryan said that I inherited something very special, the Republican Party,” Trump tweeted. “Wrong, I didn't inherit it, I won it with millions of voters!” Ryan on Thursday declared that he’s “not ready” to support Trump for president. “He also inherits something very special, that's very special to a lot of us. This is the party of Lincoln and Reagan and Jack Kemp,” Ryan said at the time. Trump responded Thursday with a terse...

    Donald Trump and his allies are lashing out at House Speaker Paul Ryan for his refusal to back — for now — the presumptive Republican nominee, with Trump’s spokeswoman even declaring Ryan unfit for his job. During a phone interview with Fox News on Friday, Trump said he was “very, very surprised” at Ryan’s comments. “It’s hard to believe,” he said, adding, “It doesn’t bother me at all.” His tweets, however, suggest otherwise. “So many great endorsements yesterday, except for Paul Ryan!” Trump tweeted. “We must put America first and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Roughly 90 minutes later, Trump came...

Bannon. “I couldn’t believe it,” continued Nehlen. “I don’t know where you get off…” pausing to read from, then direct listeners to a new Nehlen campaign press release on the subject, “Paul Ryan’s elitism is showing. He’s apparently decided that the American electoral process of a representative republic isn’t good enough. His disdain and disrespect for the American electorate is breathtaking.” The release continues: “It doesn’t matter whether Speaker Ryan...

    Republican Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail for his first rally as his party’s presumptive nominee on Thursday night, delivering a series of searing attacks against likely rival Hillary Clinton and making clear he has no intention of toning down the rhetoric that drove his spectacular rise. Trump, arriving to John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” betrayed a hint of wistfulness about wrapping up the nomination more quickly than he and his aides had expected. Rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich suddenly ended their campaigns this week, making his visit to West Virginia, which votes May 10, largely...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen is out with his first potential viral video ad of the 2016 election cycle. Nehlen is a water filtration company executive in Wisconsin who calls himself a tea party sympathizer. He is challenging Ryan in the First Congressional District, prioritizing three key issues: government spending, mass immigration, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Nehlen can gain traction on those issues because of Ryan’s decisions since he’s been at the top of House leadership, responsible in part for crafting a national bipartisan agenda with the Democratic-controlled White House. Nehlen’s candidacy thus far is reminiscent...

Why don’t you come back to Wisconsin and debate me—man-to-man, face-to-face—on the realities of TPP.

    Publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters. “If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO. “If you listen or watch Hispanic media in the state...

Via ABC – The Republican National Convention in July is going to be missing some of the party’s most recognizable faces. All of the living former Republican nominees for president said they are skipping the Cleveland convention with the exception of Bob Dole, the 1996 GOP nominee. An aide to Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, confirmed to ABC News that he “has no plans to attend the convention.” Romney has been one of Trump’s most scathing critics....

    This has been an exceedingly unpredictable year. Although we remain convinced that Hillary Clinton is very vulnerable and would probably lose to most other Republicans, Donald Trump's historic unpopularity with wide swaths of the electorate - women, millennials, independents and Latinos - make him the initial November underdog. As a result, we are shifting 13 ratings on our Electoral Vote scorecard, almost all of them favoring Democrats. Our assessments are based on publicly available polling, data on demographic change and private discussions with a large number of pollsters in both parties. Much could change, but undecided voters begin more hostile...

    After acknowledging he will now raise money for the general election, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has named a national finance chairman who has a history with some organizations that could clash with his conservative populist message. On Thursday, Trump named Steven Mnuchin, the chairman and CEO of private investment firm Dune Capital Management LP, to lead his fundraising. Mnuchin, according to his Bloomberg profile, was a partner at Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 17 years. He also worked at Soros Fund Management LLC, founded by liberal mega-donor George Soros.

Mr. Trump, who is expected to run on a nonideological platform of his own design, is trying to reassure party officials that he understands there are certain norms even he needs to follow as the Republican nominee, and that he is capable of producing an organization and infrastructure that can sustain a costly general election campaign.

    Donald Trump has set a big, fat trap for Hillary Clinton, and so far she has stepped right into it. He turned his attacks against women against her. She is, he argued, playing the “woman card.” And Clinton anted up, offering her supporters the chance to buy a “woman card.” From now until Nov. 8, Trump will surely continue to insult women. If Clinton routinely responds to those attacks, Trump will turn her into the “women’s candidate,” and she will lose. She is already perilously close to being that candidate. Let’s be honest. Polling shows that Trump has a problem...

Bernie Sanders' decision to stay in the race, creates a new challenge for Clinton, who now has to defend herself on two flanks. "I'm still trying to...

    While the Republican field has now been cleared for Donald Trump, the road ahead is still messy for the front-runner to become the official nominee at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, in July. Currently, Trump has 1,012 bound delegates, plus an additional 43 unbound delegates who are free agents -- though they have told ABC News they support Trump. Most likely, Trump will hit and far surpass the needed 1,237 in total delegates on June 7, when delegate-rich states like New Jersey and California cast their ballots. He is predicted to take most of the 228 delegates up for...

    The Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs is eschewing the terms “felon” and “convict” when officials refer to individuals convicted of crimes, opting instead for less “disparaging labels,” Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason announced Wednesday. The Office of Justice Programs plans to substitute terminology such as “person who committed a crime” and “individual who was incarcerated” in speeches and other communications as part of an effort to remove barriers that officials say hinder progress of those who re-enter society after completing their prison sentences. “I have come to believe that we have a responsibility to reduce not only the physical...

    Donald Trump won't self-fund his general-election campaign, and will instead create a "world-class finance organization," the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview on Wednesday. For a campaign expected to cost more than $1 billion, "I'll be putting up money, but won't be completely self-funding, as I did during the primaries," Mr. Trump said. The New York businessman, who did receive some mostly small unsolicited donations, lent his campaign $36 million of the $47 million he spent through March. That plan represents a shift for Mr. Trump, who has for months portrayed his Republican opponents as "puppets" for relying on...

    If those of us in the Republican party cannot let go of the personal animosity that exists against each other and unite against the Democratic party, then the 2016 election will be the last election in American history. What I mean by this is if Hillary Clinton becomes our next President then America will enter the longest period of uninterrupted Democrat rule since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Meaning, as Daniel Greenfield of Front Page Mag writes, “it will be the single greatest opportunity for the left to transform America since the days of the New Deal”. Furthermore, Greenfield...

    PPP's new West Virginia poll finds it's likely to just keep Donald Trump's recent streak of dominant victories right on going. Trump leads in the state with 61% to 22% for Ted Cruz and 14% for John Kasich. Trump, with a 67/24 favorability rating, is the only candidate GOP voters in the state even like. Both Kasich (32/50) and Cruz (32/53) come in with negative favorability ratings. Adding Carly Fiorina to the ticket has done little to help Cruz. Only 12% of voters say picking her as his running mate makes them more likely to vote for Cruz, compared to...

"I plead guilty. I absolutely plead guilty. You know why? Because I want one of them to win." The admission came after Hannity spent weeks being accused of shilling for Donald Trump. In a rare moment of media bipartisanship, the liberal site ThinkProgress called his show a serialized Trump infomercial, and the conservative site RedState endorsed that characterization. Even Sen. Ted Cruz had accused Hannity of asking pro-Trump...

    Ted Cruz laid into Donald Trump with his most personal and toughest criticism since the GOP presidential campaign began, calling him a "pathological liar" on Tuesday who doesn't understand the difference between the truth and lies. Cruz prefaced his comments by saying that for the first time, he wanted to say exactly what he thought of Trump after the front-runner suggested Cruz's father might have had something to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Texas senator accused Trump of being both disingenuine and self-aggrandizing, saying Trump was a "narcissist" at a level "I don't think this...
  • The Cruz/Rush/National Review strategy - (vanity post)

    05/03/2016 9:35:40 AM PDT · by Ge0ffrey · 89 replies
    I think that I now understand that Cruz and Rush and even the National Review have all been on the same page with a strategy that is about to fail. Let Trump knock out all the other candidates and then Cruz can knock out Trump. It might have worked if Cruz had been more likable but he's Godawful. I've had reservations about Trump from the beginning, but if Phyllis Schlafly's on board, so am I. If Trump morphs into some kind of typical liberal after he becomes president, we'll fire him

    On a sunny day at the Oasis Diner in Plainfield, Indiana, roughly 20 miles west of Indianapolis, Ted Cruz breezed through a 1950s-era diner with a gleaming steel facade. One of the last diners of its kind, the Oasis sits along the Historic National Road, the iconic highway traversing the state that fancies itself the Crossroads of America. Here, four days before he named Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick, Cruz met a crowd of a few hundred supporters. He mugged for photos, noshed on a fried pickle offered to him by a customer, then shot straight behind the...

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Marlin Stutzman is held a rally at Parkview Field as a final push to connect with Indiana voters ahead of Tuesday’s Primary. U.S. Representatives Marlin Stutzman and Todd Young are both vying for the seat left vacant by Senator Dan Coats. It is one of the most hotly contested local races on the primary ballot. The candidates have fought a bitter battle for the Republican nomination. “It’s hard for me to have Republicans attack me as viciously as they have,” said Stutzman. “But if you can’t take a punch, you shouldn’t...

    In a fiery rally speech for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% on Sunday night, Glenn Beck expressed his belief that God has sent us Cruz as “a man who was raised for these times,” and that God has deliberately prolonged the GOP primary season so that every state in the union will be forced to choose between “good or evil.” Beck opened his speech by affirming the importance of the Indiana primary, which many political observers regard as a make-or-break moment for Cruz. “This is going to be a place of miracles,” Beck said. “This is the place that’s going...
  • Paul Ryan Still Straining to Hear Emphatic ‘NO’ on Puerto Rico Bailout

    05/02/2016 3:39:05 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 28 replies
    Yes, it appears Paul Ryan is still straining to hear the will of American taxpayers as he works to maneuver them into bailing out Puerto Rico. The word “NO” shouldn’t be that hard for Ryan to hear on this issue. A significant number of Republicans in the House caucus are rightly opposed to putting taxpayers on the hook to clean up Puerto Rico’s mess. Moreover, a whole lot of American taxpayers are literally shouting at Ryan, saying, “Don’t do it!” Just check out reader comments like this one on a recent Wall Street Journal article about Ryan’s efforts to push...
  • Clinton Was Never Intended to be the Democrat Nominee(Trojan Horse for Stealth Candidate Biden)

    Former speaker of the House John Boehner recently spoke ill of fellow Republican Ted Cruz in a Q&A at Stanford University. His comments likening the candidate to "Lucifer in the flesh" got all the media attention, leaving this virtually unreported: Boehner's comments also included a reference to the ongoing FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was at the State Department, speculating on what might happen if the scandal widens. "Don't be shocked … if two weeks before the convention, here comes Joe Biden parachuting in and Barack Obama fanning the flames to make it...

    For those who thought it is too late for a third-party candidate to run for president, don't count out that option quite yet. Bill Kristol has put out a hypothetical short list of third-party candidates, including Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who could run if Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee, Breitbart News reports. One of the nation's most influential conservatives and editor of The Weekly Standard, Kristol has said that a Trump victory in Indiana this Tuesday would force him to refocus on his so-called Latter-Day Republican independent ticket.
