Doug Ross @ Journal: DOCUMENT LEAK: Virginia GOP Establishment’s “Loyalty Oath” Scheme to Suppress Insurgents Trump and Cruz

Unlike TLR, I believe Cruz would smash any Democrat in the general election. After all, we’ve tried the GOPe candidates over and over again to ill effect. What say we try a consistent conservative in the mold of Reagan?

And who would you rather see on the debate stage facing off with Granny Catlady more than Ted Cruz?

Well, do you think Ted would do this?

DNC Media Shocked, Outraged That Trump Gets the Same Kind of Pass They Automatically Give the Clintons, Obama. | Daily Pundit

Can’t you just see him inviting her up to the mike with him to tell some roaring crowd of 20,000 all about the time Hillary’s partner in crime beat her, raped her, and then told her to “put some ice on that?”

And then adding this: “I’m only bringing this up because Hillary Clinton told me I needed to do it.”

If not, I’m sticking with Trump.

Trump VS the “Establishment” – He’s Got ’em Right Where He Want’s ’em – Stammering, Stuttering and Lost… | The Last Refuge

It is beyond refreshing to have a candidate who just accepts the downside.

The march of the Trumpisms’ continues:

  • Megyn Kelly: “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals’…”
  • Trump: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”
  • Media: You can’t build a wall!
  • Trump: “Sure I can, AND Mexico is going to pay for it!!”
  • Media: But you support Eminent Domain?
  • Trump: Yeah, and “Try building the Keystone Pipeline without it”..
  • Media:  But you called Sanders a maniac!
  • Trump: “And a Communist”, don’t forget!
  • Media:  But you declared bankruptcy!
  • Trump:  “Yup, sure did.  And I Chaptered 4 out of 400 companies. Took over bad deals and made money on those too !”…
  • Media:  But you held a rally and someone said Obama was Muslim, and you didn’t defend him from it!
  • Trump:  Yeah, “Would he defend me? I don’t think so!”
  • Media: But you attacked Ben Carson! “…
  • Trump: Well, I never hit my mother on the head with a hammer! Did you, Bill?”
  • Media: Jeb Bush want’s a no-fly zone in Syria?
  • Trump:  When did ISIS get airplanes?
  • Media:  You can’t build a wall?
  • Trump: I build things, that’s what I do – watch me!
  • Media:  You’re going to deport 11 million people.  You’ll need a “deportation force“.
  • Trump:  What does I.C.E do?
  • Media: But you used to be a Democrat, you have donated to Democrats?
  • Trump:  Yes, I live and work in New York.  NYC is all Democrats, if I need to leverage assistance for my company goals I need to work with Democrats.  It’s a business necessity; I look out for my employees and their best interests.
  • Media:  But you had Hillary Clinton at your wedding?
  • Trump: Yes, it was an amazing event, the best, the biggest, the most elegant, and I asked her and Bill to attend. They did.  Wouldn’t you, I mean if I invited you?
  • Media:  You spend all this time talking about polls.  You seem obsessed by polls?
  • Trump:  Yeah, that’s because I’m winning them.  If the polls were not good, I wouldn’t even mention them. Duh.

The Donor Class, its pimps, its whores, none of them will ever “get” Trump, even as they “get Trumped.”

The rest of us do, though. And they’re too fucking dumb to even be as terrified as they really should be.

680,000 Green Cards Given to Immigrants of Muslim Countries

The United States has issued 680,000 green cards to immigrants of Muslim-majority countries, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Liberal Media Loses Interest in ‘Clock Kid’ After Islamic Attacks

The liberal media lavished 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed, also known as “Clock Kid,” with praise and adoration after he was arrested in Irving, TX, for his alleged homemade clock that he made in school. Media outlets wrote article after article claiming his mistreatment proved Islamophobia exists in America. But as The Washington Post‘s Callum Borchers points out, they lost interest after the attacks in Europe and Mohamed’s enormous lawsuit against his school.

“Greedy little America-hating Muslim fuck” doesn’t fit the narrative nearly as well as “helpless cute victim of uncalled for bigotry.”

Switzerland Bans Burqa, Fines Up to $10,000

In 2011, Switzerland toyed with the idea to ban the burqa when the lower parliament “backed a resolution called ‘Down With the Masks!’”

The law is similar to France’s burqa ban, which passed in 2010. The law caused international uproar, but the European Court of Human Rights upheld it in July 2014.

This won’t be the last Islamic thing Europe ends up banning – or worse.

CA GOP Consultant Helps Louisiana Elect Dem Governor

Thanks in part to California Republican political consultant Rob Stutzman, Louisiana has elected a Democratic governor instead of a Republican one.

Stutzman teamed with two Democrat pollsters, Rob Green and Adam Rosenblatt, to create three ads during the GOP primary that savaged

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)


’s race for governor by dredging up a prostitution scandal to which he admitted in 2007.

Despite the fact that Vitter had apologized publicly and won reelection to the Senate handily in 2010, the triad used the scandal in an attempt to knock Vitter out in the primary.

Stutzman defended his role in creating the ads, run by the super PAC Louisiana Water Coalition, telling the National Journal, “My view is the herd should be thinned of our bad candidates and he (Vitter) might be one of the worst candidates we had anywhere in the country as an incumbent.” He insisted that he believed Vitter’s candidacy would endanger a safe GOP governorship, although Vitter was a significant favorite to win.

These guys are whores.  They’ll work for whomever pays them.  There isn’t a single uncorrupted bone in their bodies – except for that Donor Class bone rammed down their throats.

Americans Will Be Home for Thanksgiving – Rasmussen Reports™

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% of American Adults will have Thanksgiving dinner at home this year. Thirty-five percent (35%) will spend Thanksgiving at a relative’s home, while six percent (6%) will spend the holiday at a friend’s house.  Just five percent (5%) will celebrate Thanksgiving at a restaurant, while three percent (3%) will not have Thanksgiving dinner. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 

The spouse and I will be celebrating our 31nd anniversary as well as Thanksgiving out this year, in my new favorite Chinese restaurant in San Francisco.  We both dislike turkey, so both Peking Duck and Pork Belly will be on the menu.  Haven’t had Peking Duck in several years, (pricey and must be ordered in advance if done right), so I’m looking forward to it.  Pics to follow.

And…open thread!  Thanksgiving comments, menus, photos all encouraged.

UPDATE:  Pictures!

Here’s the Pork Belly:

Single portion:

Peking Duck:

Here’s what he looks like, from his Facebook page:

Our table was directly to the right from where he is standing.

The side fixings: (Two raw vegetables, the pancakes (piping hot, paper thin – as they should be), two sauces – chili and plum:


The Duck:  Comes in two forms:  slices of crispy skin, and slices of meat:

You eat the skin separately.  Just dip it into the sauce of your choice and crunch away.  Tasty!

As for the meat, which is amazingly tender, juicy, and almost entirely lacking in the usual duck grease, you put some veggies and sauce onto a pancake, top that with the meat, fold the whole thing into a packet, and eat. 

The whole meal was amazing.  I’ve now eaten six dishes at this place, and every one was perfect.  At the table next to us were a group of little old Chinese ladies from Beijing.  They were talking about what a wonderful cook Chef Han was, and how perfect his food was.  Pretty big compliments from a bunch of picky Beijing Chinese grannies.  Beijing people are as snobbish about things Beijing as Parisians are about Paris, New Yorkers about NYC and, well, San Franciscans about The City.

Here’s a goodbye shot of the neighborhood:

This is Clement Street, which is the real San Francisco Chinatown for San Franciscans.  Tourists rarely come here, but locals clog the place.  We tend to view the better-known Chinatown as a rip-off tourist attraction for visitors who don’t know any better.  There are a handful of good Chinese joints in tourist Chinatown, but the best Chinese restaurants in The City are out in The Avenues neighborhood, particularly along Clement and Geary.

Anyway, one of the better Thanksgiving Dinners I’ve ever had.  Probably try it again for Christmas.

So…how’s your Thanksgiving going?

NH GOP Chief Jennifer Horn Fights Resignation Calls

Horn has not answered repeated requests for comment from Breitbart News when pressed on how her attacks on Trump and her efforts to promote the specific candidacies of Rubio, Bush, and Christie do not amount to her abandoning neutrality. She has also ignored an email asking for a response to the calls for her resignation as state party chairwoman.

But Horn did tell WMUR she isn’t planning on resigning. “I think our bylaws are pretty clear,” she said. “I am not getting involved in a campaign or joining a campaign, and I won’t.”

She also doubled down on her comments against Trump’s candidacy for president. “As chairman of the party, I am certainly concerned whenever divisive rhetoric gets in the way of furthering the strong message of Republicanism,” she said. “It is a message that embraces everyone in the community and lifts up everyone in the community.”

Horn’s actions represent a new low by the party establishment, as it goes after Trump.

Oh, it’s going to get worse – a lot worse.  And it will only make Trump stronger.

I’ll give decent odds that this bint is gone by the time her precious New Hampshire primary rolls around – along with Christie, and maybe even Bush – depending on how mush shit Jeb can absorb over the next two months.

Iran “Treaty” Not Worth the Paper Its Lies Are Written On
Bill Quick

State Department: Iran Deal Not ‘Legally Binding’ and Iran Didn’t Sign It | National Review Online

“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” wrote Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, in the November 19 letter.

Frifield wrote the letter in response to a letter Pompeo sent Secretary of State John Kerry, in which he observed that the deal the president had submitted to Congress was unsigned and wondered if the administration had given lawmakers the final agreement. Frifield’s response emphasizes that Congress did receive the final version of the deal. But by characterizing the JCPOA as a set of “political commitments” rather than a more formal agreement, it is sure to heighten congressional concerns that Iran might violate the deal’s terms.

“The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose — and ramp up — our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments,” Frifield wrote to Pompeo.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani discouraged his nation’s parliament from voting on the nuclear deal in order to avoid placing legal burdens on the regime. “If the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is sent to [and passed by] parliament, it will create an obligation for the government. It will mean the president, who has not signed it so far, will have to sign it,” Rouhani said in August. “Why should we place an unnecessary legal restriction on the Iranian people?”

Wait, what?  You mean this whole thing was nothing more than a kabuki exercise in political theater dreamed up by the Muslims in Tehran and the Marxists in the White House?  That it’s actually not a deal at all, but only some worthless, unenforceable blather that Iran can ignore entirely if it wishes (and it does so wish)?

And yet on the basis of this bag of meaningless lies, we’re releasing tens – maybe hundreds – of billions of dollars to our sworn enemies, while getting in exchange…absolutely nothing?

Say, if Obama actually were secretly a Shia Muslim working to undermine the United States and aid her Muslim enemies, what, again, would he be doing differently?

Saudis to sue Twitter user who called poet’s death sentence ‘ISIS-like’ – Yahoo News Canada

DOHA (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s justice ministry plans to sue a Twitter user who compared the death sentence handed down on Friday to a Palestinian poet to the punishments meted out by Islamic State, a major government-aligned newspaper reported on Wednesday.

    “The justice ministry will sue the person who described … the sentencing of a man to death for apostasy as being `ISIS-like’,” the newspaper Al-Riyadh quoted a source in the justice ministry as saying.

    The source did not identify the Twitter user or the possible penalty.

On Friday, a Saudi Arabian court sentenced Palestinian poet Ashraf Fayadh to death for apostasy – abandoning his Muslim faith – according to trial documents seen by Human Rights Watch.

The religion of ISIL is the same religion that governs the Saudi state:  Wahabbism.  Both ISIL and Saudi Arabia murder people for the crime of “apostacy.”

Both regimes are comprised of barbarian savages who practice a savage, barbarian religion.

What Saudi Arabia does (which, for some reason, never seems to get much publicity here in the States – I wonder why?) is not “like” what ISIL does, it is identical, because the well from which both spring is also identical.

The Donald is right! Gucci store worth more than Romney

Real estate developer, reality TV star and potential presidential contender Donald Trump boasted to The Des Moines Register on Monday that 45,000 square feet of commercial real estate he owns in Midtown Manhattan is worth more than Mitt Romney.

It’s an inelegant comparison to be sure, but — unlike many of the things Trump says — it’s one that can be tested against reality. So we checked it out.

Turns out that several experts on New York real estate back up Trump’s off-the-cuff claim, as do several recent sale prices on comparable properties. The retail space in question is definitely worth more than $300 million and could go for over $1 billion.

While there are several variables and uncertainties in play, Trump’s claim is almost assuredly true.

YouGov poll: Trump leads Rubio and Cruz head to head — by double digits « Hot Air

Rubio and Cruz both believe that if they can somehow end up as the last man standing against Trump, it’s a cinch they’ll be the nominee. If you believe these numbers, they’re kidding themselves. As for what happens if Trump falters and we end up with a Rubio/Cruz finale, Cruz wins that one-on-one 55/45 according to YouGov. That also strikes me as implausible — the margin, not the baseline result — but it’s more plausible than the idea that Trump’s going to crush Ted Cruz by 14 points once Cruz has united social conservatives, most tea partiers, and most of the “Anyone But Trump!” vote among the wider party behind him.

…How does a brokered convention between Rubio and Cruz with Trump as a wild card sound next year?

It sounds laughable, Allahpundit, as do you, mostly, these days.

AP thinks these numbers are “implausible.”  Of course, he once said stuff like this:

The GOP establishment’s nightmare: What if the race comes down to Trump versus Ted Cruz? « Hot Air

So yeah, the establishment would go with the professional politician if they had to decide. And conservative voters, of course, would go with the true conservative. That was the significance of yesterday’s PPP poll out of North Carolina: When given a choice between Trump and Marco Rubio or Scott Walker, righties opt for the latter despite giving Trump fairly solid marks on favorability. Meanwhile, undecideds would line up behind the professional pol, knowing that he’d be less likely to alienate swing voters with his rhetoric in the general election and therefore would be more electable. And even some Trump fans, satisfied that the true RINOs in the race like Jeb Bush had been eliminated, would switch to Cruz knowing that he’s as anti-establishment in his own way as Trump is. I think Cruz wins the war with Trump easily.

Always go to Allahpundit for your plausible analysis.

Dear Media, Stop Freaking Out About Donald Trump’s Polls | FiveThirtyEight

So, could Trump win? We confront two stubborn facts: first, that nobody remotely like Trump has won a major-party nomination in the modern era.4 And second, as is always a problem in analysis of presidential campaigns, we don’t have all that many data points, so unprecedented events can occur with some regularity. For my money, that adds up to Trump’s chances being higher than 0 but (considerably) less than 20 percent. Your mileage may vary. But you probably shouldn’t rely solely on the polls to make your case; it’s still too soon for that.

So sez the stats geek who relies on OPP (other peoples’s polls) for his learned wonkery.

Not everybody is totally bonkers on the matter, though:

Dear Nate Silver: The media (and the GOP) should absolutely be ‘freaking out’ about Trump’s poll numbers « Hot Air Headlines

Liberal Media darling and alleged prediction guru Nate Silver says that everyone in the media should just calm down and stop “freaking out” about Donald Trump’s amazing poll numbers. He insists that almost no voters have actually made up their mind yet and that there is still only a minuscule chance of Trump stealing the GOP nomination and changing our politics forever (not to mention also virtually insuring the election of Hillary Clinton).

Silver is mostly wrong about Trump’s chances of winning the nomination…

Let me make clear that Silver and I have a bit of a history. I view him a liberal activist with a vastly overrated record of political predictions that he makes with a method where he can’t ever be revealed as “wrong,” and which are based mostly on the work of others. But that has nothing to do with this, my position on his extreme Trump skepticism (other than, unlike much of the gullible news media, I know there is no “magic” in Silver’s numerical hocus pocus).

Nope, and one of the more enjoyable aspects of Trump’s candidacy is that Silver has staked his reputation, such as it is, on ironclad assurances than not only will Trump collapes (at some unspecified point, for some mostly unspecified reasons), but that Marco “Scamnesty” Rubio will be the GOP nominee, after decisively “winning” Silver’s sacred metric, the “Endorsement Primary.”  As if the endorsement of a candidate by people whom the vast majority of Republicans absolutely despise will be the ultimate determinant of the outcome this year.  I’m hoping that one of the media corpses laid on a final bier as Trump takes the oath of office will be that very overblown reputation.

And, of course, John Ziegler’s unshakable belief in Trump’s inability to defeat Hillary Clinton will be laid out on that same bier, right beside Silver’s hopefully shattered rep.

Marco “Scamnesty” Rubio Just Committed Suicide In New Hampshire

Rubio: ‘God’s rules’ trump Supreme Court decisions | TheHill

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says religious believers are called to “ignore” laws that violate their faith.

“In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally violate and sin — violate God’s law and sin — if we’re ordered to stop preaching the Gospel, if we’re ordered to perform a same-sex marriage as someone presiding over it, we are called to ignore that,” Rubio said in an interview with CBN on Tuesday.

“So when those two come into conflict, God’s rules always win,” he added.

He’s desperate for some sort of showing – any sort of showing – in the Iowa “religious” caucus. And it’s not even Trump. It’s Cruz he’s terrified of there.

This will kill him in New Hampshire, by the way. Which seems, what’s that word?  Oh.  Counterproductive.  He’s actually in third place there.  But not for long, I’d guess.

Trump Crushes Cruz, Rubio, Carson Head to Head

Poll: Trump Beats Rubio, Cruz, Carson in Head-to-Head Contests – Bloomberg Politics

A new Economist/YouGov poll finds Republican front-runner Donald Trump leading rivals Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson by double digits in hypothetical, head-to-head, primary match-ups.

The New York billionaire would defeat Rubio and Cruz by the same margin of 57 percent to 43 percent, and would defeat Carson by a margin of 60 to 40 percent, according to the poll.

The finding is a blow to the hopes of some Republican elites who argue that Trump’s stubborn lead in the race will dissipate once the field winnows and a more mainstream alternative rises.

Katie Packer Gage, a senior aide to Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign, made a version of that argument earlier this month:

The poll surveyed Republican or lean-Republican voters from Nov. 19-23 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The Donor Class now officially has nowhere to go.  If they permit the charade of the fifteen clowns to continue, by the end of it Trump will be at fifty percent and everybody else will be at five percent.

If they unload the clown car and go with Cruz, Rubio, or Carson, Trump creams all three.  They’re not going to go with Carson.  He’s just too shaky, and he’s still sliding, even though he’s lost half his support in three weeks.

Their only real option, if they wish to see their wish lists on immigration and crony capitalism implemented is to back Hillary.  I expect them to do so, because if this poll is accurate, their last hope of stopping Trump is dead.

An Elliott Wave Interpretation of Trump’s Polling Chart
Bill Quick

Elliott Wave Analysis is primarily used to analyze stock price movements, but it can be applied to any sample of human activity large enough.

Here is a simple explanation of the concept:

Some additional observations: Third waves, whether up or down, are usually the longers and strongest. Thus a third wave up should be sharp, sometimes nearly vertical, while the third, or concluding, wave of a correction, should be almost as sharp going down.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at the Reuters chart since Trump declared on June 16th, with my annotations:

Note the textbook structure of his initial wave (Wave I, up) which subdivides into five sub-waves. The third wave was by far the sharpest and strongest of the five waves. Also, by the principle of alternation, with the two corrective waves of the main wave up, if one is short and sharp, the other should be longer and less sharp. We see this here: Wave 2 down is relatively sharp, while Wave 4 is longer, more meandering, and not as sharp.

My suspicion is that Trump’s Wave I is now concluding, and he will enter a Wave II correction down, which will itself subdivide into three sub-waves: Waves A, B, and C. Once these are concluded, Trump should embark on his most powerful surge – a full Third Wave that will carry him to the nomination.

So where would we expect this A-B-C correction, which has likely already begun, to stop? Well, EWA provides an answer:

Elliott Wave Basics [ChartSchool]

Guideline 3: After a 5-wave impulse advance, corrections (abc) usually end in the area of prior Wave 4 low.

So, we should expect this correction to take The Donald all the way back to the area of 30% support.  This likely makes sense, because the Donor Class has launched an all-hands-on-deck war to destroy him.  We’re also heading into the full-tilt holiday season, when politics will tend to take a back seat with many Americans to the exigencies of the season.

So, prediction:  Over the next six weeks or so, Trump will be said to have peaked, as his polling numbers move significantly lower.  Many victory dances will be danced in the usual covens of the usual suspects – Hot Gas, Allahpundit, NRO, Town Hall, and every “Republican Consultant” who finds a microphone in front of his face.

But Trump won’t drop much, if any, below that 30 point mark, (and may never actually fall out of the overall lead), while various contenders and pretenders appear to make runs at him.

And somewhere in mid-January, Trump will begin a massive Third Wave surge that may carry him over the fifty percent support mark, just as the real polls – the primary contests themselves – open up.

This is just conjecture, of course, and EWA is certainly controversial.  But I decided to apply ir when when I looked at Trump’s “stock chart,” because it is a classic textbook example of the wave form.

I should disclose that I am versed enough in EWA that I tend to use it automatically whenever I’m looking at a chart of something involving humans and their emotions, and I’ve made some seemingly counter-intuitive predictions about Trump in the past that turned out to be correct.

For instance, this, on September 17th:

Just a Prediction | Daily Pundit

I think Trump takes something of a hit, and drops back into the mid to low twenties, although it’s an open question whether he loses the overall lead as the race tightens a bit.

Now look at my annotated chart.  The dates are a bit farked up, but it looked to me, when I made that prediction, that Trump was headed into his first corrective wave down (the second wave) right after the Fiorina debate.

Anyway, it’s fun to play with this stuff.  We’ll see how it works in predicting what comes next for Trump.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian jet fighter is a “critical moment” for the U.S. and its allies to stand up to Moscow, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Tuesday.

Hours after the Kremlin condemned Turkey’s decision to shoot down the warplane for entering its airspace, Rubio warned against letting Russia get the upper hand.

“It’s important for us to be very clear that we will respond and defend Turkey if they come under assault from the Russians. Otherwise the entire NATO alliance comes into question,” Rubio, who is running for president, said on Fox News.

Yes, I want to go to war with a genuine nuclear military power (which has not been attacking us since the fall of the USSR) to defend the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Turkey’s Erdogan, which hates us, and sponsors Muslim terrorists who murder us.

And I would certainly trust a President Rubio to….

Oh, wait.  I wouldn’t trust that lying, treacherous, conniving, sonofabitch as far as I could spit him.

Video of The Chicago Cop Shooting of Laquan McDonald
Bill Quick

I’m sure that Rahmbo Emanuel and Barack “God Damn America” Obama are thrilled at this, but I do have to confess that, based solely on this video, it looks like the cops are going to have to lift a heavy load to justifiy this shooting.

I would also note that we’d be hearing much less about this if McDonald had been killed by a black cop. Or been one of the hundreds of “black teenagers” murdered by other black teenages in Chicago every year.

Anyway, get ready for every race-baiting race pimp in America to start howling their collective heads off.

Vitamins, Minerals, and Nutrients for Seniors

I take a lot of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.  I can’t prove it, but I think they do me a lot of good.  At least I seem to be in considerably better shape than most guys my age.

Please Let Me Manage Myself Out of My Job

Up from the Poorhouse by Howard Husock, City Journal Autumn 2015

These changes—call them conservative antipoverty policies—would finally let housing authorities run their systems in ways that would actually help the poorest improve their circumstances.

Why would the housing authorities want to run their systems in such a way as to guarantee their own eventual unemployment?

Somebody is being very naive here, and I don’t think it’s me.

They’ll Figure It Out Eventually

Forget the 2016 Polls: Nobody Knows Anything Yet

Atop the polls, mean­while, sit de­veloper-turned-real­ity-TV-star Don­ald Trump and re­tired neurosur­geon-turned-in­spir­a­tion­al-au­thor Ben Car­son, both of whom have rid­den celebrity and haven’t bothered with ser­i­ous cam­paign struc­tures.

Mirin­goff said the size of Trump’s crowds has more to do with people’s de­sire to see an en­ter­tain­ing TV star in per­son. “It’s a hap­pen­ing event,” Mirin­goff said. “That and go­ing to caucus are dif­fer­ent levels of com­mit­ment.”

At the same point in the 2012 race, just over two months be­fore the Iowa caucuses, pizza-chain ex­ec­ut­ive Her­man Cain had a clear lead in Iowa, while even­tu­al win­ner Rick San­tor­um was at 4 per­cent.

Keep pouring the soothing syrup down your own gullets, boys.  By the time you finally figure out that Trump has destroyed all your hopes and dreams and delusions, it will be far too late for you to do anything but weep.

Actually, it’s already too late.

If you read this entire mess of bloviage, you’ll be struck by how closely it resembles the certitude expressed by these same people when Obama royally kicked their ass in 2012.  “Polls are messed up, samples too small, splits too inaccurate, it’s too early, it’s too late, everybody hates Obama,” and so on, and so forth.

They never figured it out then, either.

Rubio: US Should ‘Respond and Defend Turkey’ If It Is Attacked By Russia – Breitbart

Florida Senator and Republican presidential candidate

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)


stated that the US should “respond and defend Turkey if they come under assault from the Russians” on Tuesday’s “Happening Now” on the Fox News Channel.

Weird.  Apparently Rubio is now going for the Muslim vote

Why in the hell should we defend Turkey, after they stabbed us in the back during the invasion of Iraq?

OAN/Gravis: Trump Starting to Run Away With It

National Polling Results – One America News Network

Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 1,051 registered voters in the U.S. regarding the presidential election. The poll has a margin of error of ± 3.0% (4.3% for the 523 Republicans and the 528 Democrats). The total may not round to 100% because of rounding. The polls were conducted using automated telephone calls (IVR technology) and weighted by voting demographics. The poll was conducted for One America News Network.

Looks like we may be heading for Trump, and everybody else bunched at ten percent or less.  Can we get rid of Santorum, Fiorina, Graham, Christie, Huckabee, Paul, and Kasich yet?
