    May I propose that Freepers pledge a daily prayer for Donald Trump for his protection? Think of his enemies: El Chapo and his henchmen and La Raza, ISIS and their legions, Soros and the Globalists, Wall Street, the Democratic Party, etal. So much hinges on this one man, and everybody is increasingly aware of this. May we simply ask Almighty God to protect Donald Trump from harm each day?

    Trump has leapt some 17 percentage points among likely Republican voters since Nov. 6, when he was essentially tied with Ben Carson at about 25 percent. Trump now captures 42 percent of those voters while Carson has fallen off slightly. Among all Republicans – not simply likely primary voters – Trump holds a substantial edge over Carson, at 34 percent to about 20 percent, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll.

At barely five feet, two inches tall, he stood up and criticized our governments expensive actions, focusing on the problems before us instead of engaging in the sound bite war waged by the other candidates. Some in the audience craned their necks to hear his timid presentation, but most quickly dismissed him as being horribly incompetent in todays media society.

Obama zeroed in on comments by Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee to decry attention-grabbing "outrageous attacks that have become all too commonplace" in American politics. Obama described Huckabee's suggestion that a historic nuclear deal between Iran and world powers earlier this month was marching Israelis to the "door of the oven," as part of a "general pattern" that would be "considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad". Obama also took issue with Trump's "outrageous" comments about the...
