    Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States, and the immediate aftermath will be "pretty scary," according to Jeffrey Gundlach, the chief executive officer at DoubleLine Capital. Gundlach, speaking with CNBC on Friday emphasized that he does not support political candidates, but his analysis leads him to believe Trump who lags presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in recent national polls will win the White House. "[People] are looking for change, and I think Trump is going to win on the basis of that," Gundlach said. "And he will be quite...

    "This campaign is a reality TV show," he said. "And you have to understand that Donald Trump has been involved with the best reality TV producers for more than 15 years... They make what has been weighed, strategized, considered, look like it is off-the-cuff, look like it is completely unrehearsed. It is very staged. It is very calculated." "He has won a tremendous victory of marketing, because he is selling you a brand. You've accepted that as his brand. That is why he is going to win: There is nothing better than a clear message in politics," he said.

    The world's historic effort to reduce carbon emissions is likely to be a costly if not quixotic endeavor, according to one expert, whose recently published research warns that decarbonizing the globe could have devastating consequences on the world's way of life. In a report published this week, the International Energy Agency issued a call for "concrete action" to match the ambitions of last year's landmark climate change agreement, which was recently ratified by nearly 200 countries. The energy watchdog said the transition to a low-carbon future would require "massive changes in the energy system" to prevent the globe's temperature from...

    A few months ago, I wrote that Donald Trump would win the GOP presidential nomination but that would be the end of the line for him. I was sure that Trump just couldn't shore up enough of the already too small Republican base to win in November, thus nearly guaranteeing not only a loss but a big loss to Hillary Clinton in the general election. Well, I was wrong. In the 80-odd days since I wrote that piece, I've been seeing more and more evidence of why my predictions for Trump's demise were wrong and that his chances...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump just revealed an inconvenient truth about U.S. debt, the outspoken and often controversial Peter Schiff told CNBC in a recent interview. Last week, Trump joined CNBC's "Squawk Box" last week to discuss a wide range of topics including U.S. debt, interest rates and replacing Fed Chair Janet Yellen. It was Trump's comments about potentially renegotiating the more than $19 trillion in U.S. debt and the sensitivity surrounding higher interest rates that raised eyebrows. While some observers argued that Trump's approach could be tantamount to a debt default, Schiff told CNBC the GOP nominee was...

    Donald Trump may be the only Republican presidential candidate who can realistically hit the magic 1,237 number for the majority of delegates, but according to a senior Republican National Committee official that does not mean he will become the GOP presidential nominee. "Even if Trump reaches the magic number of 1,237 the media and RNC are touting, that does not mean Trump is automatically the nominee," Haugland said. "The votes earned during the primary process are only estimates and are not legal convention votes. The only official votes to nominate a candidate are those that are cast from the convention...

However, when one checks the CNBC page "16 questions for Hillary Clinton," both the question and the laughable answer are gone despite the fact that it was the most notable thing to come out of the interview.

    For Republican presidential contenders challenged by the media, the go-to answer has become a claim of victimhood: You are biased against us.

One of the most careful studies, by Matthew Gentzkow and Jesse Shapiro of the University of Chicago, doesn’t find much evidence of that. Its central conclusion is that readers...

Instead, Americans watched moderators with the seeming intellectual prowess of June bugs disrespectfully hurl boneheaded attacks and stupid questions at GOP presidential hopefuls, offering millions of viewers a front row seat to observe proof positive they are nothing more than extensions of, and left-wing propagandists for, the...

CNBC's Jim Cramer and Rick Santelli later asked questions a conservative would ask, but the event began with questions from moderators John Harwood, Becky Quick and Carl Quintanilla that reinforced Republicans' belief that the network is in the Democrats' pocket. The biggest loser of the night: CNBC's credibility. Harwood launched the debate with a gotcha question for billionaire Donald Trump. Personally,...

    "In debates rife with confrontation and verbal barbs, there was one thing that wasn't a big surprise: Nobody was speaking above a high school level." "And at least one front-runner was in elementary school territory. That's according to a Big Crunch analysis of the first three Republican debates, looking at the candidates' speech patterns — and matching to them an appropriate school-grade level. We based our analysis on the well-known Flesch-Kincaid readability test. (Some readers might remember playing with this feature on Microsoft Word when writing up school reports — to see how highbrow their writing was.)"

    RUSH: Mr. Snerdley, the Official Program Observer, is asking me if I still think that they're not embarrassed by it. I actually don't. Now, I have to tell you that I'm basing that solely on my knowledge of who they are, not anything that's happened since. I don't know. I've not tuned in CNBC since this happened. I've not heard Harwood or Becky Quick or Carl Quintanilla. I've not heard them say a word since the debate. I haven't sought 'em out. I haven't read anything... I just know them, Harwood especially. You cannot have the kind of arrogance these...

    I write to inform you that pending further discussion between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and our presidential campaigns, we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016. The RNC’s sole role in the primary debate process is to ensure that our candidates are given a full and fair opportunity to lay out their vision for America’s future. We simply cannot continue with NBC without full consultation with our campaigns.

    This could be a YUGE shift amid the 2016 political continuum. According to media reports the Donald Trump and Ben Carson camps are currently organizing a meeting to discuss future debates. The RNC is not currently invited. There are two aspects inherent within this dynamic that cannot be over emphasized: * First - Similar to the DNC tactics, by RNC Rule the candidates are barred from participating in, or organizing, debates that are outside of the Republican National Committee. * Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, the RNC is Team Bush. The RNC, as a current political construct, is a wholly...

    Exclusive: GOP campaigns plot revolt against RNC The Sunday evening meeting comes after an eruption of complaints by the candidates about the debates. Republican presidential campaigns are planning to gather in Washington, D.C., on Sunday evening to plot how to alter their party’s messy debate process — and how to remove power from the hands of the Republican National Committee. Not invited to the meeting: Anyone from the RNC, which many candidates have openly criticized in the hours since Wednesday’s CNBC debate in Boulder, Colorado — a chaotic, disorganized affair that was widely panned by political observers. On Thursday, many...

    Republican presidential campaigns will meet together to discuss changing the debate process this weekend, and will not include representatives from the Republican National Committee (RNC), Politico reported Thursday evening. The news comes after a series of complaints about Wednesday’s presidential debate hosted by CNBC. Candidates complained during and after the event about the network and the debate moderators.

Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), as well as Carly Fiorina and...
