  • The Rejection Election

    Townhall.com ^ | January 26, 2016 | Pat Buchanan
    With the Iowa caucuses a week away, the front-runner for the Republican nomination, who leads in all the polls, is Donald Trump. The consensus candidate of the Democratic Party elite, Hillary Clinton, has been thrown onto the defensive by a Socialist from Vermont who seems to want to burn down Wall Street. Not so long ago, Clinton was pulling down $225,000 a speech from Goldman Sachs. Today, she sounds like William Jennings Bryan. Taken together, the candidacies of Trump, Sanders, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz represent a rejection of the establishment. And, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, other...

    I am a conservative and have been all my life. I don’t need the snot-nosed, elitist pukes at National Review to “help me” out of my error. I support Donald Trump. People like the bunch at National Review have given us sure losers from Tom Dewey to Gerald Ford to the Bushes, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney. They have done incalculable damage to America with their pointy headed elitism; now all that stops in November with the election of Donald Trump.

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/19/16 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    Yes Trump, really. The brash, self-promoting candidate has captured the imagination and the support of Americans across the nation. It’s no secret that the GOP Establishment (GOPe) has made him feel unwelcome; that they consider his advocates low information and uneducated. And it’s hardly a surprise that Karl Rove should wish to preside over the candidate’s downfall. After all, Donald is someone whose thoughts and actions he can’t control. The fact is neither of our political parties have much use for either “loose cannons” or patriots. Both, it seems, are unmanageable. According to POLITICO, I am an average Trump supporter;...

    On the Sunday broadcast of "Justice" on Fox News Channel, host Judge Jeanine Pirro criticized Nikki Haley for targeting GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the GOP response to President Barack Obama's last State of the Union address on Tuesday. In Pirro's "Opening Statement" segment, she directed her ire at Haley for attacking a fellow Republican instead of attacking the Democratic Party's "so-called leadership." Pirro urged the South Carolina governor to get behind Trump because he is the party's front-runner. The Republican party is in real trouble. They proved it to all of us this week. Their primary strategy as...

    Buchanan: Trump is sui generis, unlike any candidate of recent times. And his success is attributable not only to his stance on issues, but to his persona, his defiance of political correctness, his relish of political combat with all comers, his "damn the torpedos" charging in frontally where others refuse to tread, as in that full retaliatory response to Hillary Clinton's stab at him for having a "penchant for sexism." Trump shut her down. These clashes have elated a party base that is sick unto death of politicians who never fight. On building a fence to secure the border with...

    The Republican establishment in Virginia doesn’t even try to hide its fear and loathing of Donald Trump. They have even stooped to trying to force voters to sign a “loyalty oath” as an intimidation tactic to try to stop Trump. This is why the new Overtime poll results from a survey taken from January 3rd to the 5th is both encouraging for Trump and should be troubling for his only remaining rival, Texas Senator Ted Cruz. While the poll shows the usual solid lead Trump has overall–in this case a 9 point advantage at 28% to 19%–the headline doesn’t provide...

    Donald Trump is saying he can win a number of states not easily won by a Republican. So, is this just a boast or something to keep Hillary Clinton and Fox News awake at night? The big prizes among these states are Florida and New York with their 29 Electoral votes. Trump can take New York because: A) he gets 25% of the Black vote, a fact which is not even challenged anymore, B) he is getting 45% of Hispanics, C) the conviction of Sheldon Silver, the most powerful Democrat in the state and the likely indictment of Democrat Governor...

    "In war there is no substitute for victory" were the words of General Douglas MacArthur as he spoke to a joint session of Congress in 1951 after being fired by then President Harry Truman for wanting to use tactics aimed at winning the Korean War like America's previous wars had been won. Democrat Harry Truman had the power to fire MacArthur, but he didn't have the ability to survive the backlash and was forced to withdraw his name from consideration for re-election in 1952. The Republicans nominated General Dwight Eisenhower, who won in a landslide promising to do something about...

    As compiled by Politico, let’s take a look at the genius predictions made by the “experts,” during 2015. Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz, July 7: “I happen to be in the camp that thinks [Romney’s] actually going to run, and I think he will be the next president of the United States.” Chris Cillizza the Washington Post, February 26, 2015: “So, let’s assume—gulp—that Trump is serious this time around. Heck, while we’re at it, let’s assume he actually runs. IT. DOESN’T. MATTER. I can’t emphasize that strongly enough.” As late as August 20, the Daily Beast said: “Making political predictions rarely...

    In 2016, voters must decide the direction our country will take for the foreseeable future. Will we choose to again be a nation of free and independent souls or will we continue down the path which has made the U.S. a global laughing stock? Many Americans realize that the nation cannot survive the effects of crony capitalism which dominates Washington politics. The question is how to end the corrupt practices which have provided wealth and power to members of both political parties. One would think that the forced dismissal of John Boehner as House Speaker might have caused the GOP...

    Listening to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz has made it clear that both are Republicans In Name Only – true RINOs. Thank goodness they are! Neither Trump nor Cruz is really a Republican which is a good thing because Republicanism has become another word for sellout and backstabber. In his heart Trump isn’t a Republican and that is why many Republicans and recovering Republicans (me included) are supporting him. In the midst of the new Paul Ryan/Mitch McConnell reality, Ted Cruz is not really a Republican either and this is what is fueling his rise in the polls. Jeb Bush,...

    In the latest milestone of Orange County's shifting political milieu, Republicans' share of voter registration has fallen below 40 percent for the first time in the county's history. That's 8 percentage points more than the Democrats' share but marks an ongoing slide from Republicans' 22-point dominance in 1990, the GOP's zenith in the county, according to county elections statistics updated this week. The growth in voters with no party preference -- at 24 percent, up from 10 percent in 1990 -- is a key part of the shift.

There are a number of difficult problems Cruz would have to face as the Republican nominee that Donald Trump wouldn’t have deal with. Cruz was born in Canada, to an American mother and a Cuban citizen father. Like it or not, Cruz would have to fight a continual battle to prove his eligibility.

    Ted Cruz is the most conservative candidate in the Republican field. His speeches are inspirational trips into what America should be, which is why he will never be elected president. He is far too conservative to stand a chance in a general election. In 2012, rank and file Republicans were tricked into nominating a liberal candidate who chased away conservatives and lost, which was exactly the plan. Mitt Romney was never in the race to win. Conservatives knew it and 4.5 million stayed home. The media knew what would happen and it celebrated putting one over on the Republicans when...

    Donald Trump has developed a new very potent weapon that is striking fear into the left and his enemies in the RNC. He is effectively saying, “So what?” to the phonies who have paralyzed civil discourse for far too long with their stupid bleating about political correctness. Because he is who he is, Trump cannot be ignored by the media. Consequently, when they attack him for saying something they have deemed not politically correct he looks them square in the eyes and asks, “And, so what?” Because Trump says what many people think, not what the media deludes itself that...

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,...

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...

    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...

    Could the new national poll showing Ben Carson ahead of Donald Trump by 4 points be just an invisible new suit of clothes?

    Donald Trump is playing Rope A Dope with the media and they cant do a thing about it. Hugh Hewitts recent interview of Trump brought us more insight into how much the Republican front-runner enjoys slapping around the media fools who think they can be the king killer, hero the Left is hungry for. The game is afoot and the media just doesnt know what to do. Their egos make them believe THEY are the longed for hero but their basic lack of credibility precludes their getting anywhere near the prize. When Hewitt asked Trump questions about the...

    Last week, Donald Trump held a news conference in which, if I counted correctly, he responded specifically to 46 direct questions most of which were not very supportive. Frankly, I could not find a single instance in which any other candidate, either Democrat or Republican, had the guts to do that. And I also could not find a single instance in which I took issue with his positions. 1. Mr. Trump is his own man; finances his own campaign; solicits no political contributions and will be obligated to no lobbyist or PAC. How refreshing! 2. He stated the obvious:...

    Donald Trump has taken many positions that annoy conservatives and some that infuriate conservatives; but on the issues that matter most: securing the border, making America respected and feared and stabilizing our economy, his positions are quite appealing. 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. Making believe (at least I hope so) that they dont understand why Trump the Businessman would say things that...

    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...

    In 1854, confronted by the moral evil of slavery and the inability of the Whigs to provide clarity against it, the Republican Party formed. Whig Party leaders either shifted their party allegiances or quit politics altogether. Even Abraham Lincoln got out of politics for a time. By 1858, the Republican Party had majorities in almost all Northern States even without a Southern presence. The party won the Presidency for the first time in 1860 and commanded the White House throughout the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth century. With the rise of Soviet evil after World...

    It isnt often that Coach is Right publishes an entire piece not written by one of our own staff. But author Wayne Allyn Root has done such a masterful job exposing the fear Donald Trump has elicited from members of the Washington D.C. Uniparty and the sheer panic which drives their every response that it would be an injustice to excerpt only the occasional remark. Americans of every political stripe will recognize the truth of Roots presentation. Some may not like it or admit it, but there is no getting around itDonald Trump has turned the political world on its...

    Among a very long list of harms inflicted upon the United States by Barack Obama and his party, perhaps the worst was Caesarism. Obama relished the worship of millions in 2008. 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...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) The Kentucky Republican Party has agreed to hold a presidential caucus The partys executive committee approved a proposal on Saturday to hold a presidential caucus on March 5. The plan would let Paul run for president and re-election to his Senate seat at the same time without violating state law that bans candidates from appearing on the ballot twice in the same election. Republicans agreed to approve the caucus on one condition: The state party had to have $250,000 in its bank account by Sept. 18 specifically reserved for caucus expenses. If the money is not...

    This is a cautionary tale of how New Yorks Republican Party committed suicide rather than win with votes from, those people. It happened in 1994 and life has gotten worse for New York Republicans ever since. Republican Dennis Vacco was locked in a very close battle to become the states Attorney General. During the closing days of the race Vaccos campaign manager announced that the Democrat, Karen Burstein was unqualified because she is a lesbian. The New York Times called the comment gutter politics. Nevertheless, Vacco won by just fewer than 2% and the seeds of the NY State GOPs...

    Part of what makes Trump dangerous to the Republican elites is he's willing to cater to the opinions of the Republican base in ways that the Republican establishment wouldn't dare. In doing so he can exploit longstanding cleavages between the Republican Party and the voters it represents.

    Ive written several pieces on Donald Trump. Reaction to these musings either fire up the Trumpsters wrath or garner me their instant support. Im accused of being an establishment lackey or Im lauded as a Trump supporter. But nothing Ive written is that black and white. My takeaway from these responses is that Im not getting my point across. However, being nearly as stubborn as Trump, I refuse to give up. So today Ill approach the subject in a manner that all men and most women will get. Im going to use a sports analogy. Football. Oops, is that sexist?...

    America and the Republican Party are dead. America was murdered by Barack Obama and his supporters. The Republican Party was murdered by John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the US Chamber of Commerce. Bringing them back to life is not something we should bank on happening. The number of people who see America as being on the wrong track hovers above 65% and it has not been less than 61% since mid-February. Approval ratings for the Republican Party are at historic lows. Both are dead. The Hippocratic Oath advises Doctors to, First do no harm. Their job is to help mend...

    Conservatives lambaste Republican leaders over Planned Parenthood, Export-Import Bank Jon Ward Senior Political Correspondent ‎July‎ ‎29‎, ‎2015 Conservative grassroots anger at Republican leadership in Congress and in the presidential contest has crescendoed in recent days, and the outrage on the right is forcing the GOP to respond. The unrest came to a climax on Monday when conservatives tuning back into the political discussion after the weekend saw that on Sunday, the Senate had failed to take up a bill to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had forced through an amendment...
