  • Jim Gilmore: Hillary's Worst Nightmare? (Vanity)

    02/05/2016 10:04:57 PM PST · by Crucial · 25 replies
    02/05/2016 | Myself
    OK, so Hillary's been a bad little sociopath. She let an ambassador and three other Americans get brutalized and murdered. She feels nothing for them. She just knows what she wants and that is the Presidency. What she deserves is to be prosecuted and jailed. Enter Jim Gilmore. Gilmore worked as a prosecutor. He also worked in Army counterintelligence. So he knows what he's talking about when it comes to Benghazi. He's a natural born citizen by any definition. He's a veteran. He's got executive experience and is a very solid conservative. Why are we not considering Jim Gilmore? Do...

    Because of the cult of multiculturalism and Islamic immigration, kids in the Bruce Vento Elementary School in St. Paul, Minnesota will not be having Valentines day anymore. The school is also thinking of doing away with Thanksgiving and Christmas. We must not upset the sensitivities of our new Muslim neighbors. There is a discussion about how to deal with Islam. The talking heads seem to agree that we are all against terrorism and radicalized Islam but we are for moderate Islam. So where does this fit in? It isn't terrorism because the muslims are not attacking or threatening physical assaults...

    Trump was ambushed during the rally by a heckler who defended illegal aliens. The Hill posted the transcript: “Illegal immigrants are the backbone of our country? I don’t think so, darling,” Donald J. Trump responded to a heckler who interrupted his campaign rally. “You know what the backbone of our country [is]? People that came here, and they came here legally. People that came here to this country legally, and they worked their ass off, and they made this country great.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ9HgEO53G8

    I have loved Ted Cruz since he filibustered. I loved him even more since he.called McConnell a liar. Nothing Ted has done since then has changed my love for him. But then there's the Donald. I love him too! I love how he has torn apart the political correctness and the conventional wisdom. But how can I love both candidates and not be unfaithful to them both? I wish they would stop fighting each other. I wish they would start fighting Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

    Thank you Donald Trump for telling the truth with courage. When others feared being called names by the politically correct, Trump got out there and said in no uncertain terms that HE WOULD BUILD A WALL! This is one of the major reasons why so many people love him. Millions of Americans have been harmed by illegal immigration and others have learned about it and sought to get the message out over the years only to be suppressed and smothered by the politically correct establishment.

    Question for Discussion - Will Trump hit Rubio as hard as Cruz? Theory: Trump is an errand boy for the international banking and globalist financier elite. He has been funded in the billions (and owes yuge amounts still) by George Soros, Deutsche Bank and many other manner of sundry globalist hedge funds and financial institutions that the Uniparty reports to. As such, he is given the job of taking down Cruz. But not Rubio, who proved with the Gang of Eight that he will make deals and play ball and is acceptable to the Uniparty and globalist interests.

    Hillary and Bernie tied at 262 (that's two hundred and sixty two) votes. Ted Cruz alone got more than 40,000 (that's forty thousand). What does that tell you? 1) That the Democrats in Iowa are seriously less than thrilled with these two. 2) That only those Iowan's campaigning for Hillary and Bernie, of the favorable members of the press, voted for them. 3) And that there is a serious chance that some of these counties had ZERO votes and had to be tossed with a coin. Never mind that Hillary's chances of winning six coin tosses in a row is...

Is the RNC approving those asking questions and the questions asked at these debates? The debates have been widely popular. Millions of viewers has meant millions of dollars in revenues. This gives the RNC leverage. The RNC, presumably, wants to get one of its candidates for president elected in the general election come November. This gives the RNC motive. So why have these appeared to be complete free for alls? Now the press will follow the Fox precedent of video 'gotcha' playing...

    On January 16th, the Trump campaign put out a facebook post with "How to Caucus Iowa," a 90 second instruction video on the basics of caucusing. Within 24 hours, it received about 30,000 views. In the last couple of weeks, it's been spreading virally through Trump supporters sharing on social media and has now received over 190,000 views. For what it is worth, Trump can probably handily win Iowa if it reaches his 50,000 caucus turnout goal. I mention this because the Trump campaign criticism is that it is not doing a traditional ground game of thousands of volunteers knocking...

    01/28/2016 8:23:46 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 29 replies
    Carpet bombing, also known as saturation bombing, is a large aerial bombing done in a progressive manner to inflict damage in every part of a selected area of land.[1][2][3][4] The phrase evokes the image of explosions completely covering an area, in the same way that a carpet covers a floor. Carpet bombing is usually achieved by dropping many unguided bombs. The term obliteration bombing is sometimes used to describe especially intensified bombing with the intention of destroying a city or a large part of the city.[5] The term area bombing refers to indiscriminate bombing of an area,[5] and also encompasses...

    I've seen reports that Donald Trump isn't raising money for Wounded Warriors, but for his own foundation. I'm sure he's not stupid enough not to make sure that every cent he raises doesn't go to disabled veterans. And while I really don't like a lot of things about Trump's campaign or past issues, frankly, it makes sense to have control over the donations so they don't go to the sort of waste typical of many charities. But it turns out that Donald Trump's foundation isn't legally a private charity; it's a public non-profit organization. A "510(c)3," in the parlance of...

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different result. I'm not insane, hence I won't be voting for Cruz (R - Wall Street) in the primaries under any circumstances whatsoever.
  • "You've Been Trumped" (Trump Documentary that got Spiked)

    Trump was able to keep this film from coming to light when it was filmed 25 years ago. It's not hard to see why he wanted it kept under wraps. It shows what an unprincipled, dishonest, cruel, opportunistic individual he is. This film will require an investment of your time (1 hour 20 minutes). That doesn't seem like an unreasonable amount of time to investigate someone who aspires to be the president of the United States. I even recommend that you view it twice (a few days apart) so that you will pick up on some of the things you...

    Ronald Reagan had nearly defeated incumbent President Gerald Ford, and had the Republican establishment had to vote heavily for Ford to outweigh the elected delegates in order to nominate Ford. Reagan adopted a strategy of avoiding the establishment events altogether, not just the Iowa debate. And he went on to lose Iowa. And he plummeted in the polls in Massacusetts and South Carolina. In New Hampshire, Reagan shifted tactics. He realized he needed to debate... and defeat... Bush. The Nashua Telegraph agreed to sponsor a debate between Bush and Reagan. Careful not to violate RNC rules, Reagan instead offered to...
  • [Vanity] Why would Trump bother to negotiate with Pelosi?

    01/26/2016 7:44:32 PM PST · by dangus · 83 replies
    Trump has been boasting of late about how great his relationship with Nancy Pelosi is. Apparently, he still thinks she's "the best," as he wrote in his fawning love letter to her in 2007, when Pelosi took over the House and set about sabotaging the U.S. economy. Maybe some FReepers are (to my surprise) of the notion that if you have to have to negotiate with liberals, so be it. But why does Trump think he will have to? After all, the Republicans hold a solid majority of the House of Representatives, and there's no hint of a tide turning...
