  • GOPe Conservative Pundits Should Relocate to Realville

    American Thinker ^ | June 11, 2016 | J. Robert Smith
    Realville, as Rush often says, is where he lives. That’s a place without blinkers or rose-colored glasses. That’s actually where we all live, though some of us prefer to deny it. That is, until reality bites. Then our wishful thinking or willful ignorance dashes upon the hard rock of unforgiving reality. The crackup always smarts. Thus is the case with the 2016 presidential election. There’s Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In other words, there’s Column A and Column B. That’s the choice. Column C is fairyland. Come November, tens of millions of voters will flock to the polls to choose...

    Here is a sentence I never thought I’d type: After days of prayer, reflection, and serious study of the possibilities, I am not going to run as an independent candidate for president of the United States. I gave it serious thought — as a pretty darn obscure lawyer, writer, and veteran — only because we live in historic times. Never before have both parties failed so spectacularly, producing two dishonest, deceitful candidates who should be disqualified from running for town council, much less leader of the free world.

    Ben Howe, a leader of the dwindling so-called #NeverTrump group of moderate bloggers, pundits, and political consultants on the right, mocked the defenseless woman in San Jose whom protesters pelted with bottles, eggs, and food on Thursday night. Howe, who is a RedState contributing editor, has been leading the growingly embarrassing so-called #NeverTrump movement of moderate “movement conservative” political consultants, pundits, and bloggers upset over Trump’s victory in the Republican primary. When he received backlash over his mocking of the woman covered in egg yolks thanks to anti-Trump protesters, he aimed to draw a moral equivalence between a woman being...

    Yikes. I’m probably as surprised as anyone else to hear myself saying it, but the producers might want to start cranking up the music and offer a subtle hint to Mitt Romney that it’s time to get off the stage. We’re busy getting ready for the convention in Cleveland and the pieces are pretty much set up on the board, yet it seems that the winner of the 2012 GOP primary can’t bring himself to step back and let somebody else get on message. This pattern of behavior was on display yet again this week when Mitt let everyone know...

    Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, calls Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson “useful idiots” regarding their defense of Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg. From The Federalist: Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson have both written pieces in response to this week’s meeting with Facebook – Beck as someone who attended, Erick as someone who didn’t. Both suggest the same thing about the conservative relationship with Facebook: that criticizing the corporate entity for its obvious bias in its news curation is an act of hypocrisy and nothing more than a Jesse Jackson-style shakedown. These are the complaints of useful idiots. They...

    Unlike some of the other former candidates, Rick Perry is keeping his word and has pledged his support for the apparent nominee, Donald Trump. Texas’ longest serving governor is now being attacked for honoring his promise to the voters that he would support the eventual nominee of the party. In September 2015, Gov. Perry was asked in a post-campaign interview if he would support Donald Trump by the Austin American-Statesman’s Jonathan Tilove... Perry’s answer, “Sure. Whoever comes out of that Republican field I’m going to be supporting...” Now, outlets like Red State and National Review are attacking the governor for...

    Candidates’ aides and allies want anti-Trump vendors barred from lucrative general-election contracts. Donald Trump’s campaign is considering hitting his Republican enemies where it hurts: Their wallets. As Trump moves to work in closer concert with the Republican National Committee apparatus, some campaign aides and allies are pushing him to block lucrative party contracts from consultants who worked to keep him from winning the nomination, according to four sources familiar with the discussions. “The Never Trump vendors and supporters shouldn’t be in striking distance of the RNC, any of its committees or anyone working on behalf of Donald Trump,” said a...

    As Donald Trump emerged victorious in the race for the Republican presidential nomination this week, the loudest cries of anguish heard in Washington may well have come from one section of his own party—from those in its conservative movement. “Conservatives had their party hijacked from them in the 2016 primaries,” wrote Jonathan S. Tobin in Commentary, a leading platform for conservatives. He added: “The consequences for individual liberty and restraint of government power, not to mention America’s foreign-policy interests, will be incalculable.” Meanwhile, Leon H. Wolf, writing on the conservative site Redstate.com, proposed what many conservatives would consider a radical...

    Erick Erickson was out of patience, tired of reading about Mitt Romney as a paragon of conservative virtue, tired of hearing the callers to his Atlanta radio show praise Romney’s record. The founder of the red-meat blog RedState.com sat down last fall in his Macon home, beside a towering painting of Abraham Lincoln, and banged out an epic rant. Romney was “unprincipled,” he wrote, and yet certain to win the Republican presidential nomination—an outcome that would cause “the destruction of the conservative movement as we know it.” Time has not softened Erickson’s stance.

Carlson singled out RedState for attacking Trump’s voters as “diseased” and “probably on Oxycontin” or “secretly liberal,” but insisted that such talk is inherently counterproductive. “He is on track to receive more votes than any Republican nominee ever,” Carlson began. “He’s already surpassed Mitt Romney’s number in 2012.” He was...

    Donald Trump was so unhappy about the Cruz Campaign's "Supreme Trust" ad that he sent a "cease and desist" letter demanding that the Cruz campaign immediately stop running the ad featuring Trump currently running in South Carolina. During an epic press conference Sen. Ted Cruz rejected Trump's frivolous demands. In its response the Cruz campaign said the ad is not an attempt to mislead the public: The objective of the ad is precisely the opposite - to provide the voters of South Carolina with important and accurate information so that they can make an informed decision when they go to...

    Probably no one has earned more leeway from conservative voters and pundits than Rush Limbaugh. Rush has been a tireless force for the conservative movement for decades, and he probably is responsible for a whole lot of conservative Republicans who are currently in office. But thankfulness for past service only goes so far, and Rush’s program yesterday officially crossed the line. When I think about Rush’s last year or so on air, I’m reminded of Marshall Phillipe Petain, one of the most intriguing figures of the twentieth century. Without Petain, the French might not have prevailed over the Germans at...

In New York, Cruz’s numbers show he will be mathematically eliminated from any chance of reaching the 1,237 delegates that would give him the nomination in Cleveland this summer. On top of that, given his very poor showing so far, Cruz is on the brink of finishing 3rd behind John Kasich who has already been mathematically eliminated himself. In Pennsylvania, Cruz is fading and...

By all reports, Cruz is far ahead in the ground game in California, which awards delegates not only on the statewide vote but also by congressional district. Even if Trump wins the state, he may underperform in enough congressional districts due to Cruz’s superior campaign preparation that Trump is stopped short. Or he may fail to file...

    You get three guesses, and the first two don’t count. But if you guessed “the same campaign that did not get enough valid signatures to be on the ballot in either Pennsylvania or Illinois,” you would be absolutely correct! Yup, John Kasich cannot win all of the delegates from Maryland. It is in fact mathematically impossible for Kasich to do so, at this point. Quick background: Maryland assigns 14 of its 38 delegates to the winner of the statewide race, and the other 24 by who wins each Congressional District. The CD delegates are directly voted on: the top three...

    At this point, whatever happens, the GOP’s chances of winning this election is at best 25%, if Cruz is the nominee. If Trump is the nominee, that falls to 3% at best. The problem is; Trump won’t win … and he won’t let himself lose. If he loses the nomination, I see two possibilities; 1) He immediately endorses his friend, Hillary Clinton. His promises are as genuine as a three dollar bill. 2)He waits until mid-October, when all the ballot papers are printed, and then he’ll endorse his friend, Hillary Clinton.

    As part of my ongoing Trump campaign biography, I thought it would be interesting to see what so-called "conservatives" had to say about Sarah Palin in 2008. Turns out, it's not much different than what they have said about Trump (i.e., hatred): Remember how the so-called conservative media treated Sarah Palin in 2008? Charles Krauthammer wrote, “with Palin, the case against Obama evaporates.” Palin’s choice, he claimed, “negates the theme of readiness” to assume the office. Referring to her as a “wing-nut candidate,” Krathammer wrote of Palin’s “inevitable liabilities” due to the fact that any “unvetted neophyte has ‘issues,’” such...

    Who is Corey Lewandowski? Leon H. Wolf. March 12, 2016 . Thanks to the Michelle Fields incident, the world has now been exposed to Donald Trump's pint-sized campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. But many people still don't really know who Corey Lewandowski is or where he came from. There's a reason for that: Lewandowski has a long history of working for convicted political crooks and greasing the skids in Washington. Lewandowski first came to political prominence during the Jack Abramoff scandal, when he was an aide to Bob Ney, the Ohio congressman who got sent away for 30 years on corruption...

    REDSTATE CALLS ON FAR LEFT PROTESTERS TO BRING GUNS TO TRUMP RALLIES! RedState, a right of center website, managed by Trump-basher Erick Erickson, is part of Townhall Media. The website claims it has three goals: 1) Educate conservatives 2) Motivate conservatives to get involved in the political process 3) Activate conservatives through RedState’s support and tools Today Redstate called on all far left protesters to BRING FIREARMS to Donald Trump rallies. This is a new low for the Trump-hating ‘so-called’ Conservative media. They can’t beat Trump at the ballot box so now they want his supporters shot dead. It’s one...

    5 Takeaways From The Miami GOP Debate By: Jay Caruso | March 10th, 2016 This was actually one of the better debates I have watched since this all started. Jake Tapper redeemed his lousy questions last time that mostly started, “Donald Trump said….” with tough and fair substantive questions in this debate. Some were more ready than others. Here are the takeaways I came up with from this debate: 1. Rubio had a terrific debate – I said earlier today it was critical Rubio have a great debate. And he delivered. There is not a person on the stage that...

    By all accounts, Ted Cruz had a great day on Saturday, scoring surprise wins over Trump in Kansas and Maine (by fairly comfortable margins), tying him in Louisiana, and narrowly losing Kentucky. Cruz narrowly closed the delegate gap with Trump and just as importantly increased the space between himself and the other non-Trump candidates. Today, Ted Cruz needs to do three things in order to keep his momentum going, in no particular order. 1. Beat Marco Rubio (and John Kasich) in Michigan. Donald Trump is probably going to win Michigan. Cruz's strategy in Michigan is to beat two guys who...

    Donald Trump has claimed  he has the "world's greatest memory," but when it came time this winter to give testimony in fraud cases filed against him and a real estate training program known as "Trump University," he displayed a repeated inability to recall names and faces of instructors he had claimed to have hired personally. "I can't remember that," he said on Dec. 10, when asked by trial lawyers in one of the class-action cases whether he had met one of the instructors in a program that provided training in building wealth through real estate. "The name sounds familiar but...

    Why I Changed My Mind and Joined the #NeverTrump Movement DAVID FRENCH March 2, 2016 Let me begin by saying that I was wrong. Weeks ago I said on a number of radio interviews that while I opposed Trump in the primary, I’d back him if he won the GOP nomination. I hadn’t yet seen — or had been unwilling to believe — the full extent of his contempt for the truth, his fondness for far-left conspiracy theories, and his sheer malice. When I saw Trump in full, my decision was easy: Never Trump. I have spent my entire adult...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | March 2, 2016 | Jeffrey H. Anderson
    In winning Texas by 16 points, winning Oklahoma, winning (as of this writing) Alaska, and finishing second in Alabama, Arkansas, Minnesota, and Tennessee, Ted Cruz has now solidified his grip on second place in the ‎GOP presidential race. He increased his lead over Marco Rubio in states won, votes won, and delegates won--and unless Rubio can win in Florida in two weeks (or John Kasich can win in Ohio), Cruz may soon be battling Donald Trump one-on-one (more or less) for the Republican nomination. But how can Cruz beat Trump? The number-one thing that needs to be undone from the...

    It’s been right there all along; a sense, an instinctual sense, a gut feeling, since late June 2015, and in all the subsequent months, it just kept reoccurring – and with the passing of events, each time it became more and more difficult to dismiss…. Before getting to the heart of this entirely speculative presentation, and specifically because it’s so far out there that, well, if accurate, a litany of people will claim we had to hold some insider connection, we must restate and remind everyone – we have never had any contact with any entity from the Donald Trump...

    Brand Index reported: Since the first GOP presidential debate last August, Fox News Channel seems to have lost its perception mojo with its core right-leaning audience. By mid February, FNC’s perception by Republican adults 18 and over had reached its lowest point in more than three years, and has declined by approximately 50% since January of this year. Coinciding with Trump’s rise to front-runner in the GOP presidential race, Fox News Channel has seen its perception by Republicans slide. In early August 2015, right after the first GOP debate aired on Fox News Channel,Trump went on a Twitter war with...

    The article appearing on the magazine's website Friday written by David Harsanyi reveals just how far National Review is willing to go to continue the war. It's title: "Why President Trump Would Be a Bigger Disaster Than President Clinton." "Whether you're an ideological conservative, a proponent of limited government, or someone who believes that the president has too much power already, you shouldn't think of this matchup as a contest between horrifying candidates," Harsanyi writes.
