  • Rush Limbaugh: 'I never took Trump seriously' on deportations

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 29, 2016 | Byron York
    Rush Limbaugh said Monday he does not believe Donald Trump has flip-flopped on deporting the 11 or 12 million immigrants in the country illegally because he, Limbaugh, never took Trump's deportation proposal seriously in the first place. Limbaugh's statement came in an exchange with an angry caller who criticized the radio host for downplaying the change in Trump's thinking concerning deportations. Immigration is Trump's number-one issue, the caller said, and during the primaries Trump repeatedly slammed GOP rivals who opposed deportations.
  • Donald Trump suddenly sounds a lot like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio on immigration

    08/26/2016 8:58:36 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 104 replies
    For more than a year, Donald Trump took the hardest line on immigration — vowing to deport 11 million illegal immigrants en masse and pillorying his GOP primary rivals as favoring “amnesty.” But 11 weeks before the election, Trump is suddenly sounding a lot like the opponents he repeatedly ridiculed. The nominee and his campaign aides are now talking openly about requiring illegal immigrants to pay back taxes and potentially allowing those without criminal records to stay in the country — lines that Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida repeatedly used in the GOP presidential primary. Trump also says that any...

    As questions rise about Rotten Crooked Hillary’s mental and physical stamina, her campaign is in full-scale prevarication mode on Thursday, trying to sell her critical health condition as “deranged conspiracy theories” while trying to divert attention from the truth; Crooked Hillary is now falsely alleging that Donald Trump is sick. Rotten Hillary’s lies were spewed likely due to the lying pundits stories on Wednesday, falsely claiming a shakeup in Trump’s campaign. The corrupt pundits are trying to support their trash journalism with allegations that the hiring of Stephen Bannon from Breitbart as its chief executive and the promotion of pollster...

    ALTOONA, PA. — The Republican Party could be nearing a breaking point with Donald Trump. As he skips from one gaffe to the next, GOP leaders in Washington and in the most competitive states have begun openly contemplating turning their backs on their party's presidential nominee to prevent what they fear will be wide-scale Republican losses on Election Day.

    After a disastrous week of feuds and plummeting poll numbers, Republican leaders have concluded that Donald J. Trump is a threat to the party’s fortunes and have begun discussing how soon their endangered candidates should explicitly distance themselves from the presidential nominee. For Republicans in close races, top strategists say, the issue is no longer in doubt. One House Republican has already started airing an ad vowing to stand up to Mr. Trump if he is elected president, and others are expected to press similar themes in the weeks ahead. In the world of Republican "super PACs," strategists are going...

    An electoral college map released Thursday from the University of Virginia Center for Politics projected Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton winning the November election by a landslide. UVA altered its map to reflect recent changes in the likely political leanings of certain states, but Clinton still easily came out on top. Larry Sabato, director of the UVA Center for Politics, explained what made the map different from most polls that reflect the more fickle tendencies of the electorate. The UVA electoral map focused on "the electoral fundamentals and fixed elements of politics that predetermine most votes, especially partisanship, demographics, and...

    A story published Tuesday by Politico says President George W. Bush told former aides at a staff reunion in April that he is concerned he could be the last Republican president: When it came to talk of 2016, though, the mood was grim. The Republican primary had just narrowed to essentially two choices, each anathema to these card-carrying members of the GOP establishment: Ted Cruz and, even more egregiously, Donald Trump. But few were as dark about the Republican Party’s future as former President Bush himself. In a more intimate moment during the reunion, surrounded by a smaller clutch of former aides...

    Prior to announcing Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump had narrowed the VP field down to the Indiana governor, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and Gov. Chris Christie. While Gingrich seems to have been a good sport about Trump’s ultimate decision to go with Pence, according to the Weekly Standard, Christie was “livid.” While minding my own business at the Starbucks inside the Westin hotel this morning, I saw a man engage Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in conversation about the VP selection process.

    There is growing talk on the right of replacing Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for president, and even chatter about a possible alternative. As Trump has floundered over the past week after questioning a federal judge’s impartiality because of his Mexican ancestry, Trump’s critics within the GOP have stepped up their efforts to thwart him. Some anti-Trump conservatives, who have tried for months to recruit an independent candidate, have begun looking more closely at attempting to persuade delegates at next month’s GOP convention to nominate someone other than Trump. “There is a rapidly moving train toward the convention...

Trump currently leads the GOP field with 743 delegates. He would need to win 58.9 percent of the remaining pledged delegates to obtain the simple majority necessary. A number of the states remaining award delegates proportionally. The bulk of delegates in one critical upcoming state, Pennsylvania, aren’t officially bound to any candidate.

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio should also disclose their tax information. Romney’s statement was a bowshot aimed at Trump, sources say, the surprise GOP frontrunner for whom Romney has unmitigated disdain.

"She had began collecting all her favorite things in a bag in case the army came to remove us from our homes," Yassini wrote on...

    It’s time for Republicans to stop telling people to ignore their racial identities. David Marcus’s call for a conservative anti-racism platform is long overdue. As the United States becomes more diverse, it would be better for both America and Republicans if voting were less racially polarized. The current situation can change if conservatives recognize that minorities experience America in ways that non-minorities often do not. Marcus proposes a good first step: for conservatives to accept that racism exists and that it is a problem. But as important as an anti-racism agenda is, conservatives should understand that their problems with minorities...

    The top officer of the Marine Corps sent an unequivocal message to troops: It's time to get behind the mandate to integrate women into combat units. Gen. Robert Neller released a sternly worded video late Friday, a day after Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced that all military jobs -- including infantry and special forces positions -- would be open to female troops by the start of next year. The Marine Corps was the only service to request that some fields remain closed to women, citing a yearlong co-ed infantry experiment that found gender-mixed units underperformed all-male ones. Despite that, Neller...

    A few months ago, overhearing some ladies in the audience of a pro-Israel lecture trash Donald Trump, and clearly sensing that they were Obama fans, I turned to them and said, "At least he will be a huge improvement over the current inhabitant of the White House." They were greatly displeased. But after reading this account of Mr. Trump's views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I think I owe those ladies an apology. It turns out, after all, that Mr. Trump's views on the Middle East conflict are a carbon copy of Mr. Obama's. For one, Mr. Trump believes that...

    Weeks of tough scrutiny are beginning to take a toll: Ben Carson appears to be fading in Iowa, and there are signs he may be hitting the wall in other early states. A CBS/YouGov poll released Sunday showed Carson slipping below 20 percent in Iowa and to third place behind Donald Trump and Ted Cruz — the first time he's had a rating of less than 20 percent in a major poll there since September. [SNIP] All of that suggests a challenging road ahead for the retired pediatric neurosurgeon, said Patrick Murray, the director of polling at Monmouth University, which...

    I wish to NOTIFY you that the bona-fides of four Republican Candidates to be President is hereby DISPUTED. It is claimed that the following persons do NOT meet the United States Constitutional requirement that one be a "Natural-Born Citizen" in order to be President under Article II, Sec. 1. I am disputing the bona-fides of: Marco Rubio - NOT an NBC. He was born in the U.S., however his parents were un-naturalized "permanent resident" Cuban citizens when he was born. Ted Cruz - NOT an NBC. He was born in Canada to a Cuban father and American mother who may...
