  • "Pure conservative"

    08/28/2016 9:00:04 PM PDT · by stolinsky · 50 replies
    McCain wasn't a pure conservative, so we got Obama. Romney wasn't a pure conservative, so we got Obama again. Now we're hearing that Trump isn't a pure conservative. As a result, are we going to be stuck with Hillary for four years--and with her Supreme Court nominees for decades? After Pearl Harbor, we fired the admiral and general in charge in Hawaii. But we kept the Chief of Naval Operations in Washington for a few months. He was a well-liked man known for mentoring young officers. But soon he was replaced by Admiral King. He was known to be abrasive...

    Any member of an organization that truly cares about the group will not hesitate to hold the leadership accountable for the group’s actions, if they deem them to be inconsistent with the mission of the group. This is because they want to see the group succeed in fulfilling its mission. Many in the Republican Party have criticized Trump’s campaign, not because they want Trump to win, but because “they” don’t want to lose. They don’t want to lose their “power.” They want to be re-elected to their various congressional and gubernatorial offices strictly for the sake of having power, not...

    During the live broadcast of the NBC Nightly News, the network aired a report from Morgan Radford that detailed the shooting death of Nykea Aldridge, first cousin of NBA superstar Dwyane Wade, in Chicago. Radford’s report painted a grim picture of the gun violence epidemic in the windy city. Aldridge was shot in the head while walking her baby in a stroller after registering her children at school. Radford described the event as one that “is all too common,” adding another child to the “hundreds of children, who [have] become casualties of Chicago’s violence.” Radford also explained that nearly half...

    There's an old adage that says, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.” As presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump spend the tail-end of their campaigns securing votes on the big day, their biggest battle may not be getting voters to stand on their side –– as much as getting voters to literally mark that ballot. One of the most obvious determining factors to the election's outcome is whether voters bother going to the polls at all –– leaving the fate of the country in the hands of the few who do. The...

    When you combine Hillary Clinton’s lack of appeal with her alleged ethically questionable dealings regarding paid access at the Clinton Foundation, you’re going to take a hit in the polls. In fact, in the past three days, Clinton has dropped seven points against Donald Trump. Nationally, she still leads by five, but that’s still within striking distance of the Republican nominee. That says more about her than Trump. Both are widely unpopular standard bearers for their respective political parties, but Clinton just seems incapable of breaking 50 percent. There is some silver linings for the Clinton campaign. They’re still leading...

    The recent argument regarding softer tones on the border issue is driving me nuts. Trump is going to build the wall and enforce the law and deport as many illegal aliens as he possibly can! And end sanctuary cities. And try to end anchor babies. Just enforcing the law alone will cause millions of illegal aliens to leave. For crying out loud, when is the last time we had a president of EITHER PARTY willing to do anything at all about the borders? I think you'd have to go all the way back to Eisenhower.

    (CNN)It's the most deceptive sign in politics. Every four years, a presidential candidate gazes out over a vast crowd and convinces themselves the White House is there for the taking. In 2016, the general election candidate drawing the biggest and loudest crowds is Donald Trump. "We got to Oklahoma, we have 25,000 people. We had 21,000 people in Dallas, we had 35,000 people in Mobile, Alabama. We get these massive crowds," Trump said in Florida earlier this month. "Look, if she had 500 people I would be surprised," he added, poking fun at Hillary Clinton's more intimate events.During the primaries,...

Instead, NAFTA has destroyed more than 850,000 American jobs while the U.S. trade deficit in goods has rocketed from near zero to $60 billion annually. The even bigger failure of the Clinton NAFTA deal, however, has been its tremendous negative impact on Mexico itself and Hispanics on both sides of the border.

    A liberal Court could end long-term solitary confinement. It could mandate better prison conditions in general, making it more costly to maintain mass incarceration. It could conceivably end the death penalty. It could uphold tough state campaign finance rules and start to move away from Citizens United. It could start to develop a robust right to vote and limit gerrymandering. It could strengthen abortion rights, moving toward viewing abortion rights as a matter of equal protection for women. If Donald Trump wins in November, this is all moot. But if he loses, as polls increasingly indicate, the dawn of a...

    More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85...
  • Politico: Obama to Skip Clinton Global Initiative Meeting (Via Breitbart)

    Edward-Isaac Dovere writes in Politico that President Obama is eschewing any appearance at the final annual meeting of the scandal-plagued Clinton Global Initiative. The Clinton Global Initiative is shutting down, but President Barack Obama won’t be there to say farewell. Though Obama will be in New York the week in mid-September, he’s skipping an appearance at the annual— and final — meeting of Bill Clinton’s post-presidential project, which brought together business and world leaders for the last 12 years. Obama attended for either a speech or other event every year for the first six of his presidency until 2015, following...

    A well-informed and ‘outside-the-beltway’ follower of current political events laughs at the “lagging in the polls” part. I digress…. “media-polls“, it’s all the Pavlovian Political Class know to guide them. Pavlovian Journalism: Hear bell – Push Button – Wait for Pellet. “BING” Repeat. Trump has solidly added Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio to his column. Virginia is a “more than likely“, and the rest of 2012 are all solid. Essentially, with 80 days to go – a confident Trump, without grand or indulgent prose, is doing what all exceptionally professional business leaders do. Look at the horizon, create and make adjustments...

    Donald Trump is ramping up outreach to blacks and Hispanics as he seeks to close a massive gap with Hillary Clinton among the minority voters who have shunned his campaign. In speeches and at rallies, the Republican presidential nominee is directly appealing to African-Americans for the first time, making the case that Democratic policies have harmed the black community. Trump is also reaching out to Hispanic voters, convening meetings with leaders in the community as he mulls making changes to what has been a hard-line stance on immigration that has been focused on building a wall on the Mexican border...

    Evan McAllister was 23 years old when he fought in the Iraqi city of Ramadi in 2006. He killed men and buried friends. Eight years later, he watched the same city fall to the Islamic State. To McAllister, a former Marine staff sergeant and scout sniper instructor, the war he fought was a harebrained mission planned by Republicans, rubber-stamped by Democrats and, in the end, lost to al-Qaeda’s brutal successor. The foreign policy establishment of both parties got his friends killed for no reason, he said, so come Election Day, he is voting for the man he believes answers to...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump urged for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as US secretary of state during a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday. Trump accused his Democratic rival of corruption, claiming that donors of the foundation were given preferential treatment and awarded with special favors. He went on to say that the investigation calls for special circumstances, as the US Department of Justice "has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House." "After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the...

    Hired in July to augment Donald Trump’s campaign staff and then promoted to be his campaign manager six weeks later, Kellyanne Conway (shown) has announced, "We’re in a war of attrition" in the campaign against Hillary Clinton.A war of attrition is won when the enemy has sustained such continuous and devastating losses that he (or she) leaves the field of contest. And that’s why, says Conway, "The content-free campaign is over. We are going to force the conversation to issues, because the issues favor Donald Trump."Conway may just have what it will take to win that war. Two decades of...
