    Byron York had an interesting piece on Donald Trump that is worth reading. At least anyone who might be interested in the real Donald Trump. Trump appeared in front of the “non-partisan” No Labels group who desperately wants candidates that will “compromise” even though it is never clear what compromises will result in. Donald Trump told this group, "Let me just tell you, the word compromise is not a bad word to me. I like the word compromise. We need compromise, there is nothing wrong with compromise, but it's always good to compromise and win. Meaning, let's compromise and win."...

    Trump recently, in a small way, added emphasis to the attrocious German New Years. Over 1,000 muslims coordinated to grope and rape women. Hannity yesterday mentioned over a hundred rapes. No word of whether they were gang raped, but I would guess most victims were. Merkel bungled this with a ham fist, scolding Germans not to 'scapegoat' the muslims. Germans are outraged. And every new muslim attack will be trumpeted more loudly. Europe largely blacked out reports like this and even has hate-speech laws to suppress them. But thanks to Trump, Europe is waking up so fast that it's reaching...

    Last Resistance ^ | December 30, 2015 | Michael Minkoff
    A lot of people have been comparing Donald Trump to Barry Goldwater because they are both “anti-establishment” candidates who still have popular support. But that’s about where the comparison ends. Barry Goldwater, like Ron Paul, stood by fixed convictions that made him very unpopular with establishment GOP players. He wasn’t able to be manipulated. In their minds, he wasn’t a “team player.” So even when he won the nomination, because the people liked his honesty and smarts, the establishment GOP made sure Goldwater lost the election. They would rather have a Democrat in office than lose control of their party....

    Presidential campaigns are -- first and foremost -- about political issues. This is why the media spends so much time analyzing the TV debates, rally speeches, and policy papers of the candidates. But when Americans choose a President, the issues are only one factor on their minds. Americans also weigh less tangible factors to determine how well a candidate would do in office. In short, no presidential campaign can succeed unless sufficient attention is paid to optics -- the process of building an aura of leadership and competence around the candidate. Good optics was certainly a big factor in the...

Paul was criticizing Trump's plan to shut down parts of the internet to combat terrorism. "If you're going to close the internet, realize America what that entails: That entails getting rid of the First Amendment, OK?" Paul said. "It's no small feat." Trump shot back, accusing Sen. Paul of exaggerating what his plan would do. "As far as the internet is concerned -- I'm not talking about closing the internet," Trump said.

    Republicans opened their debate season Thursday in Cleveland and produced the beginning of the beginning for a Carly Fiorina surge and the beginning of the end for a Donald Trump campaign. ..... < snip > ..... In the prime-time tilt, Trump was a major loser, coming off as mean and shallow. ..... < snip > .... Worse, he was the only Republican who refused to pledge no third-party campaign. "If they don't treat me well," Trump said later, "Why should I make that pledge?" As the poll front-runner, Trump had the most to lose in Cleveland. And he did. But...

    Mark Levin said on his radio show today that hes not trashing Fox News or Megyn Kelly for last nights GOP debate, merely giving his take as someone very serious about whats going on in this country, but its clear he was pretty frustrated, even angry, with how the whole thing turned out. It drove Levin crazy that at a forum that was supposed to be about issues important to salvaging Americas future, the first hour was a reality TV show because of Foxs ratings agenda. He said there was a fundamental unseriousness and disrespectfulness to candidates who deserved better...

    I'm sort of breaking my promise here. No news. Why no news? Because the news you read is almost always by uninformed reporters and is totally irrelevant in 99.999% of the cases. Example: Greece has not paid a single debt since Rome took over in 146 BC. And yet, everyone keeps asking me about Greece. News flash: They will borrow more money, and AGAIN they will not pay their debts. Nor should they. Greece is a subsidized beach resort, healthy food, etc but they aren't a real country - (sorry in advance to anyone offended by this) and then in...

    A triumphant and unrepentant Donald Trump launched a barrage of personal attacks and name-calling on his campaign rivals Tuesday, most notably calling South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham an idiot handing out Grahams cell phone number to the whole world He dismissed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as weak on immigration, and mocked Texas Gov. Rick Perrys glasses and Hillary Clintons hand wave. What a stiff, what a stiff, Lindsey Graham. By the way he has registered zero in the polls, Trump said, at an appearance in Bluffton, S.C. A total lightweight. In the private sector, he couldnt get a job....

    The hardest shot yet at Trump from a fellow candidate. “Donald Trump continues to demonstrate his fundamental misunderstanding of border security. Make no mistake – border security is a federal responsibility, but when I met with President Obama last year and it became clear he would not act, I told him if he would not secure the border, Texas would. Rather than thanking Texas for stepping into a gap it shouldn’t have to fill, Mr. Trump has made clear that he believes the states should fend for themselves on border security. Not only is this wrong, it perpetuates the...

    Initially during Mr. Trumps rise in the polls the Bush team was dismissive, declaring it a momentary blip. As days turned to weeks though, and Trump supporters appear to be multiplying at a pace that even has people associated with the Trump campaign surprised, the Bush 2016 operation is now openly declaring it wants help with the what is being called, The Trump problem. The call for help has even been issued to Jeb Bushs seeming Democratic rival Team Clinton. Apparently Bush operatives believe that between the two political dynasties and their many supporters among the Mainstream Media and...
