  • New Hampshire GOP Chair Attacks Donald Trump for 'Bombast and Divisive Rhetoric'

    PJ Media ^ | 11-26-2015 | Michael van der Galien
    New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn has abandoned all pretext of impartiality by launching an aggressive attack against Donald Trump. In an interview with the Boston Globe Horn says: "Shallow campaigns that depend on bombast and divisive rhetoric do not succeed in New Hampshire, and I don’t expect that they will now." She went on to say that establishment candidates like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio are "underestimated" and will almost certainly perform better than most. This despite their disappointing poll numbers, both nationally and in her state: "People are probably underestimating [New Jersey Governor] Chris Christie. And,...

    Like almost all established political prognosticators, Larry Sabato is befuddled by the meteoric rise of Donald Trump to the top of the Republican Party’s presidential primary field. That Trump, who is not a politician, can merely get into the arena, do a few deep knee bends and pummel one professional politician after another seems to have him stupefied. Although he has not commented on the victory of Matt Bevin in Kentucky yet, that race has to have had him tied in knots as well. Sabato called Bevin, who won with 14 points more than the polls Sabato relies on, a...

    Ben Carson has fallen into a “moral” trap on the question of offering citizenship to illegal aliens who are here working in jobs that could be filled by American workers. In his campaign material Carson asks, “Is it moral for us, for example, to take advantage of cheap labor from illegal immigrants while denying them citizenship? I’m sure you can tell from the way I phrased the question that I believe we have taken the moral low road on this issue. Some segments of our economy would virtually collapse without these undocumented workers–we all know that–yet we continue to harass...

    When does the gang at Fox News start saying Matt Bevin’s huge upset in Kentucky was due to “Carson-mania?” After all, don’t they all believe Ben Carson has grabbed up all the excitement on today’s political stage? How about some of the columnists who are shilling so hard for Carson? Where are their joyful shouts that “Bevin won because of Carson-mania?” Democrats can apparently recognize and acknowledge scary poll numbers better than the Republican establishment and the Donald Trump hating media. With their noses rubbed in the dirt they have had to acknowledge the truth. The latest Reuters poll of...

    It's hard to overstate how important those GOP gains — and the consolidation of them we've seen in the last few years — are to the relative fates of the two parties. While the story at the national level suggests a Republican Party that is growing increasingly white, old and out of step with the country on social issues, the narrative at the local level is very different. Republicans are prospering at the state level in ways that suggest that the party's messaging is far from broken. There are other, more pragmatic effects of the GOP dominance in governor's races...

    What happened yesterday was not the end of the RNC’s poisonous hold on the Republican Party, but it was certainly the beginning of the end. This revolution is beginning to look like the first one. It was around this time in 1781 when reality came crashing in on British Commander Lord Charles Cornwallis at Yorktown Virginia. He was beaten and embarrassed by American patriots he considered rabble and was forced to watch his world being turned upside down. Yesterday, just 160 miles away in Alexandria Virginia, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, another enemy who considers America’s patriots rabble, was forced to...

    Could the new national poll showing Ben Carson ahead of Donald Trump by 4 points be just an invisible new suit of clothes? In Iowa, Carson is rushing past Trump in some new polls; not all but some. Iowa is a unique state and lately its caucus voters have not been predictive of who will be the eventual Republican nominee. These polls may or may not be accurate reflections of what is happening because another poll shows the candidates tied. Those who want to destroy Trump so the Uniparty can continue business as usual in Washington would love see national...

Heading into the 2014 election, Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor was looked upon as the sure thing replacement for Speaker Boehner who, according to an aide, was quietly hoping to step down. But Congressman Cantor became ex-Congressman Cantor after a stunning primary loss to Tea Party favorite, Dave Brat. Current Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is the sole remaining member of the Republican Party triumvirate which had been vaulted to power in the historic, electoral...

And I also could not find a single instance in which I took issue with his positions. 1.

Therefore, with nothing left to throw at him, the GOPes personal choice for president, Jeb Bush, has decided that voters can be swayed away from Trump and toward him by showing us film clips of statements Trump made up to several years ago.

    1. He's advancing a populist economic message Tax-cutting and deregulation have been key parts of Republican orthodoxy since the days of Ronald Reagan. Mr Trump isn't reading from that particular hymnal, however. Instead he preaches a populist salvation for the economically disaffected. Poll after poll shows economic security is the most important issue for Republican voters, and Mr Trump's entire message - his anti-illegal-immigration stance, his condemnation of Chinese and Mexican trade practices, his calls for taxation of Wall Street hedge fund managers and his constant touting of his resume as a successful businessman and "job-creator" - is built around...

From his star turn at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, he was treated not as a political candidate, but as a savior. Progressives fell into a swoon, typified by Newsweek editor Evan Thomas' 2008 comment, "I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above -- above the world; he's sort of God." Now, a similar kind of unreasoning adulation is greeting (improbably enough) Donald Trump. Fred Barnes...

The date range for the annual "dog-day" period varies based on the source. The Old Farmer's Almanac refers to the 40-day period that begins July 3 and ends August 11.

But given the power unlawfully and unconstitutionally usurped by our elected officials, can it be said that any member of congress fits within a recognized set of moral parameters? After all, it is the moral nature of our legislators which must affect the life, dreams and hopes of not only this generation, but the generations to come. The amount of power which a foolish and cowardly American public has permitted our politicians to take for themselves is staggering. But what else...

    Many of us remember the histrionics on display by GOP members of Congress when they had to take positions and vote on hiking the countrys debt ceiling. Well, according to the following information, provided by someone who sounds very authentic, here is the legerdemain that went on in that closed door session of the uniparty in D.C. There are a number of details here that lead me to think this is a true account. You may certainly make up your own mind. The Congressmans name and state are deleted to protect his identity. That Tuesday, lunch began with our leadership...

    We need to create jobs for Americans, not Washington; it is time for America to be back in business, Donald Trump said as he announced the main planks in his platform to become Americas next President! It is time to Make America Great Again, is his campaigns theme statement. Continuing with his ITS THE ECONOMY mission statement, Trump, now trending number one in some recent polling, stated: We need economic growth for everyone, not just Wall Street and the special interests. I promise to bring jobs back home and ensure our trade agreements benefit the American worker and protect our...

    Congress got pumped and Americas citizens got dumped with the passage of the dangerous Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation that looks to send even more of our jobs overseas. This is what all trade treaties guarantee, says analyst Jon Rappoport. The overwhelming leakage of jobs from industrial countries to under developed countries, is Globalisms meat and potatoes engine driving our huge job transfer out of the USA. (1) The plunder of our economic and personal wealth was just bought and paid for in our own Congress with obscene amounts of special interest money buying out our Republican leaders. Lets look...

    With Governor Christie’s splash in the pool, the population pining to be POTUS is now large enough to hold a special Republican Primary: only the declared wannabes would participate, each egotist getting three votes. Naturally, we’d eliminate all their first choices and zero in on the next two, thereby distilling a much tighter cluster of potential electables.Seriously, we now have a candidate for almost every splinter view imaginable, and good people though each of them are, they collectively exemplify a party in confusion and dysfunction. As one wag pointed out, the last time there were this many declared candidates, a...

    If youre old enough to recall how the landslide election of Lyndon Johnson over the hapless Barry Goldwater spelled the end of the Republican Party, or how Ronald Reagans election amounted to a revolution that put the Democratic party on the mat until more or less the end of time, then you will understand my caution in saying that while the Republican Party may well survive its recent difficulty, Republicanism itself is dead. I think. The recent difficulties consist of taking the wrong side in the great health care debate, not only opposing what came to be called...

    Well, here we are. A year and a half away from the presidential election and we are sick of it already. So I will just go ahead and tell you the outcome and spare you all the upcoming misery. First of all it is unbelievable that with a population of over 330 million, we cant find one or two natural born citizens to adequately represent us. But if recent history is an indication of things to come, apparently we cant. Republicans: Pretty simple. They are fielding a whole gaggle of has-beens, never-wases, and wannabes. I read somewhere that every member...

    There is an Urban Legend afloat among liberals who refuse to own the racist history of the Democratic Party. They always repeat the lie that the racists Democrats somehow - at sometime - transferred their imperialist racism onto the modern Republican party. This video offers succinct historical information to debunk this Urban Legend and lie.

    As things stand now, Donald Trump will be getting my vote for President. Now a lot can happen, a lot can be said, a lot of media Trumpattacks can be hurled. But the man is the only one up there that I think can re-make America, close our Southern Border, restore our Military, return jobs to America and stop our race to the bottom. Hes paying for his run himself; hes outside of the Washington swamp; hes the plain speaking, larger than life candidate who presents actions that back up his words. He knows how to handle the media, something...

    Congress passed Obamacare, and the president signed it. But in spite of then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosis promise, we still dont know exactly whats in it. Were finding out, slowly, but its rarely good news. Obamacare was sold as the fix for our broken health care system. We were told the impact on those happy with their then current situation would barely notice a change, and those without insurance would get it. A win-win for everyone, right? Those promises went out the window right behind the $2,500 average savings on premiums per family President Barack Obama said would...

    A Colorado man-- who police say was curious to see what being shot felt like-- reportedly sustained a non-life-threatening injury Wednesday night after he fired a single bullet into his foot. The Denver Post reported that Adam Hirtle, 30, told a Colorado Springs officer that he purposely shot himself in the foot while inside his garage. Police told that Hirtle used a .22 caliber, semi-automatic handgun.
