    There are many indicators the leaked 2005 NBC/Universal Trump video may have been a coordinated GOPe (UniParty) plot to remove the threat to their influence and affluence posed by the candidacy of Donald Trump. Here’s a summary of stories, interviews and excerpts related to this issue. [I’ll weigh in with my take after all of the information] Beginning with Lou Dobbs interviewing Jerry Falwell Jr.: Jerry Falwell, Jr.: The whole story just fell in my lap about six or eight weeks ago. I got a phone call from someone who is very close to the top establishment candidates and the...
  • Jeb Bush donors want a rematch in 2020

    Jeb Bush in 2020, anyone? Sources close to Jeb Bush’s failed run at the 2016 presidency say the “low-energy” candidate has been back in touch with supporters. They believe he’s popping up to “feel them out” for another run and, according to at least one big contributor, they're in! “Bush has been quietly making telephone calls to his supporters, bundlers and donors, to talk about the state of the county and the economy, and the energy business, why would he do that?” asks one insider, who concludes “he's running in four years.” Before he was trounced by Donald Trump, Bush...

    Since 1992, Republicans have been smarting their loss by claiming that Ross Perot stole enough votes to elect Bill Clinton. Even as much as the loyal opposition seeks to demystify the winner's victory, the Perot-elected-Clinton lie has only served to force the GOP to adopt pro-immigrant pro-big-gov narratives. Perot was more liberal than Slick Willie himself. http://www.ontheissues.org/Ross_Perot.htm He was pro-abortion, pro-homo, and for tax hikes on fossil fuel, the driver of American jobs. Bush I's job approvals in 1992 were as low than Jimmy Carter's in 1980 http://spectator.org/63682_bushioisie-wrong-ross-perot-didnt-cost-ghw-bush-white-house-1992/ http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx Of course Bush was 1000x better than Surrender Monkey Dhimmi, but...

    It is the beginning of the end of the House of Clinton: 1. There is the stench of political death around Hillary, Bill, Chelsea and the entire House of Clinton. 2. You could feel it when Republican front-runner Donald Trump hit back — hard — over the "penchant for sexism" charge by basically calling Hillary Clinton an enabler in the former president's sexual shenanigans. 3. When have we ever seen the Clintons back off? But they did. 4. Then came further reports about an expanded FBI probe of her handling of secure information; the nexus of State Department favors for...

    Washington (CNN)-Jeb Bush's campaign manager argued Thursday that the one-time front-runner is still poised to win the Republican nomination despite his low poll numbers because "conventional wisdom" has proven wrong throughout the primary. "Political conventional wisdom hasn't been right yet, and I don't think it's right in this instance," Danny Diaz, Bush's campaign manager, told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." "The reality is this: two-thirds of voters haven't made a decision, they won't make a decision until the final week, 25% of New Hampshire voters don't make a decision until the final day."

The former Florida governor, who is trying to rejuvenate his own presidential campaign, dismissed Trump as "not a serious candidate," while trying to explain the businessman's lingering popularity at the top of GOP primary polls. ...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has been having a bad time, whether in the polls or at the debates. To improve his public image and increase his political capital, the former Florida governor has hired the famous media coach Roger Ailes employed to whip his Fox News anchors into tip-top shape. According to the Daily Intelligencer, legendary political consultant and media coach Jon Kraushar will help Bush bolster his renewed “Jeb Can Fix It” campaign.

    Jeb Bush doesn't understand how hoodies work. And for some reason, Jeb Bush believes, apparently, that publicly demonstrating his lack of understanding of hoodies with a SF-based tech company schwag hoodie will somehow benefit him in the polls. When the younger Bush brother came to San Francisco last July, the presidential hopeful made a concerted effort to show plugged-in San Franciscans that he, too, understood the disruptive power of technology. This manifested in predictable ways, such as when he hailed an Uber on his way to visit SF-based Thumbtack. He also, it seems, took advantage of the classic tech-job perk:...

You can’t build a wall on the rugged terrain that exists there.” He continued, “What Donald Trump is proposing is a wall that can’t be built. And if it was to be built it would be hundreds of billions of dollars. He wants everybody to be deported which will tear family life asunder

    Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's campaign had three fundraisers suddenly depart on Friday, Politico's Alex Isenstadt and Marc Caputo report. Kris Money, Trey McCarley, and Debbie Alexander, who were all based in Florida, are no longer with the Bush campaign, the report said. They are, however, still with Bush's Right to Rise Super PAC. Politico reports that there are different accounts of what happened. The three fundraisers are said to have quit. One source claimed that there were some "personality problems" within the campaign. Other sources told Politico the three were let go because they were...

    Politico ^ | 8/4/15 | Eli Stokols
    Another ill-advised ad lib from Jeb Bush, another opportunity for Democrats. Looking to curry favor with religious conservatives at the outset of a competitive primary fight, Bush on Tuesday repeated his call to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood — and then he went even further, questioning the amount of government support for women’s health programs generally. The Romneyesque unforced error drew a fast and furious backlash from Democrats, causing Bush to backtrack almost immediately and to acknowledge that he “misspoke.” The controversial comment came as Bush started to acknowledge the importance of federal funding for some women’s health programs,...

    Donald Trump's poll numbers are good, political analyst Karl Rove conceded Thursday, but he urged viewers to put the numbers into "a little bit of perspective." "He has been in the race for six weeks,"..."He has had a good move up, a good bump up, but we've seen this before. "Look, there will be a lot of movement in this race. It is really still early." And even though Trump is topping the polls as far as Republicans who would support him, his favorability ratings are suffering, Rove said. -snip- However, pointed out Rove, "30 percent of the Republicans say...

    An 81-year-old Stratford man has been charged with public indecency, accused of performing a sex act with some shrubbery. Police tell the Connecticut Post they arrested Wallace Berg Monday after a neighbor showed them a video he took of a naked Berg in the bushes outside Berg’s home. Police say the neighbor told them he confronted Berg who then stopped the indecent behavior, covered himself with a grill cover, apologized and went into his house...

    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    One analyst thinks former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is the clear front-runner to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Greg Valliere, the chief political strategist at the Potomac Research Group, now pegs Bush's odds of winning the nomination at 50%. That's up from the 35% odds Potomac gave him in June. "His campaign has stabilized after a terrible spring slump," Valliere wrote in a research note. Bush has been leading most Republican polls of the race, but has faced an insurgency in recent weeks from real-estate magnate Donald Trump, who doubled Bush's support nationally in a poll released...
