Anonymous vs Ted Cruz

Got this one from over at Subrealism, which is a great somewhat right of center site run by a friend.

Anonymous is now threatening to expose Cruz’ visits to the ladies of the night. Not sure anyone in the Republican Party other than his wife and kids cares…But it is a thought.

Now…Who did Trump hire to do the video work?

Wisconsin Paper, and Local Radio Do Major Trump Takedown

Looks like the “Steely Knives” are out in Wisconsin to kill the Trump campaign.First, the conservative talking heads in the state eviscerated him in interviews on talk radio…

And now the major Newspaper in the state has published a blistering condemnation.

Trump Pinata’s now popular in not only Mexico…But North of the Border

By any measure, Donald Trump is unfit to be president

No to Donald Trump.

No to his bigotry.

No to his contempt for women and minorities. No to his vague, clueless bluster about the problems facing the nation.

No to Trumpism, which runs counter to the ideals of this nation of immigrants, to the notion that by working together under the rule of law, we can protect freedom and promote inclusion and fair play.

Wisconsin Republicans: Reject this un-American candidate on April 5.

And consider these facts:

■Trump has stoked the smoldering fears of immigrants long latent in American political culture. He calls for walling out immigrants and deporting 11 million people. It is an impossible and disruptive policy that would divide families, require enormous law enforcement resources and drive the undocumented deeper into the shadows. Worse, it wouldn’t address the problem of supply and demand for labor. It likely would harm entire industries — including Wisconsin dairy operations — and encourage public corruption such as we haven’t seen since Prohibition.

■Trump’s blustering anti-Muslim rhetoric is helping to recruit new terrorists. He promises to “bomb the sh– out of ISIS” and demands that all Muslims be banned from entering the country. He singles out an entire religion, against the First Amendment promise that we can worship as we choose, instead of focusing on the terrorists who have brought shame to their faith. He refuses to rule out the use of tactical nuclear weapons. He says “torture works,” and despite never having fought for his country, he ridicules Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who suffered years of torture in a North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp. Trump advocates killing the civilian families of terrorists and violating international law, promising the military will follow his orders over their constitutional and moral duties. The Islamic State thinks so much of Trump’s sound bites that it has used them in recruitment videos.

■Trump has belittled women for decades. His coarse comments about his opponent in the early primaries, Carly Fiorina, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and Heidi Cruz, the wife of his closest opponent for the Republican nomination, were just the latest in a long line of outrageous sexist statements. He has called womenfat pigs, slobs and dogs. He has made rude sexual comments on talk radio shows. In the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, he had an astounding 70% unfavorable rating among women overall, which makes him unelectable in a general election.

■Trump has incited violence at his rallies with heated rhetoric aimed at firing up supporters while portraying himself as a tough guy. From behind a wall of Secret Service protection, Trump has said that in the past protesters “would be carried out on a stretcher” or that he would like to punch them “in the face.” After a white North Carolina man sucker-punched an African-American protester who was being led away, Trump offered to pay the assailant’s legal fees. In Chicago, after protesters infiltrated a Trump rally, the candidate called off the event and fist fights broke out. At a rally in Iowa, he “joked” that he could shoot someone “in the middle of Fifth Avenue” and not lose a single vote….Read The Rest Here

The Future First Lady…Da Huh?

A large majority of Americans would agree that Michelle Obama has set the Gold Standard for First Ladies. Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan have all pretty much followed in the footsteps of Lady Bird Johnson, with programs to improve education, and expand parks. In the case of Hillary, Barbara, Michelle, and Nancy they also to an active role in advising their Presidential husbands.

Like their husband’s politics or not, each of these women gained respect around the world.

So,,,If the Drumph wins, who is our next First Lady?

This is a photograph of Trump’s current wife who did nude photo spreads for GQ Magazine.

Not very First Ladylike. And apparently some of Ted Cruz’s staff have been sending the pictures out as part of their anti-Drumph material.

Clown Bus Update – Ben Carson Toast

Uncle Ben Ends His Campaign

No surprise here from the beginning.

Ben Carson, Seeing No ‘Path Forward,’ Signals End to Bid

Ben Carson, the only Republican to have once threatened the lead of Donald J. Trump in national polls, said on Wednesday he saw no path forward and would skip a debate on Thursday in his hometown of Detroit, signaling an end to his candidacy after paltry performances in the nominating contests.

Stopping short of suspending his campaign, Mr. Carson said he would provide more details in a speech on Friday, but after his dismal showing in the Super Tuesday states, his campaign is effectively over.

A retired pediatric brain surgeon of world renown, Mr. Carson long held Republicans’ favor with an uplifting biography and a quiet manner that belied his strafing critiques of President Obama and liberalism, which delighted grass-roots conservatives.

In the end, Mr. Carson withered under mocking insults hurled at him by Mr. Trump, especially in Iowa, and he suffered from voters’ desire for a candidate projecting strength at a time of anxiety over terrorism.

“Dr. Carson’s favorability ratings have never changed,” Armstrong Williams, a close adviser, said just before the Iowa caucuses last month, when Mr. Carson finished a disappointing fourth. “But after Paris and San Bernardino, his supporters made a different decision. They wanted a war president. Dr. Carson did not have the rhetoric or the competitiveness on the debate stage to say the explosive things, to say, ‘Let’s keep all the Muslims out.”’

Even in a year of fierce anti-establishment leanings, Mr. Carson’s months-long popularity, coupled with the prodigious support of small donors — his $20 million collected last summer led all other candidates – stunned political professionals.

Born into poverty and raised by a single mother with a third-grade education, Mr. Carson remade himself from a wayward teenager into a scholar, winning admission to Yale and medical school. By 33, he was the chief of a major department at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He burst on the political scene in 2013 when he criticized President Obama’s health care plan at the National Prayer Breakfast, a video watched over and over by delighted conservatives.

After his disappointing showing in the Iowa caucuses, Mr. Carson never seemed to regain his political footing. In the round of Super Tuesday contests Tuesday, his hopes for a strong performance in the South faltered, as he ran a distant fourth or fifth in every state.

“I do not see a political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results,” Mr. Carson said in a statement. “However, this grassroots movement on behalf of ‘We the People’ will continue.”

“I appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, from all corners of America,” Mr. Carson said. “Gratefully, my campaign decisions are not constrained by finances; rather by what is in the best interests of the American people.”

Clown Bus Shrinkage…

Jeb Crash

Jeb Bush Bows Out of Campaign, Humbled and Outmaneuvered

Jeb Bush dropped out of the presidential race on Saturday, ending a quest for the White House that started with a war chest of $100 million, a famous name and a promise of political civility but concluded with a humbling recognition: In 2016, none of it mattered.

No single candidacy this year fell so short of its original expectations. It began with an aura of inevitability that masked deep problems, from Mr. Bush himself, a clunky candidate in a field of gifted performers, to the rightward drift of the Republican Party since Mr. Bush’s time as a consensus conservative in Florida.

“I’m proud of the campaign that we’ve run to unify our country,” Mr. Bush said, his eyes moist, in an emotional speech here Saturday night after his third straight disappointing finish in the early voting states. “The people of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I really respect their decision.”

Mr. Bush’s campaign had rested on a set of assumptions that, one by one, turned out to be flatly incorrect: that the Republican primaries would turn on a record of accomplishment in government; that Mr. Bush’s cerebral and reserved style would be an asset; and that a country wary of dynasties would evaluate this member of the Bush family on his own merits.

No surprise, Uncle Ben Carson came in last in South Carolina…But he has sworn to hang on.

Uncle Ben Carson In the Lead Nationally Over Trump

Hard to believe, but the poll data from one source has put Uncle Ben in first place…

Poll Watch: Ben Carson Edges Ahead Nationally in Times/CBS News Poll

Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign, dislodging Donald J. Trump from the top spot for the first time in months, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released on Tuesday.

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is the choice of 26 percent of Republican primary voters, the poll found, while Mr. Trump now wins support from 22 percent, although the difference lies within the margin of sampling error.

The survey is the first time that Mr. Trump has not led all candidates since The Times and CBS News began measuring presidential preferences at the end of July.

No other candidate comes close to Mr. Carson and Mr. Trump. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida received 8 percent while former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, are each the choice of 7 percent of Republican primary voters.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio each received support from 4 percent of those surveyed.

The poll represents a single waypoint in a long nominating process that has already seen considerable volatility. The third Republican debate is on Wednesday, which could further scramble the unsettled field. Such early polls have proven unreliable predictors of the eventual winner, and the first nominating contest, the Iowa caucus, is still more than three months away.

Trump appears to have done his Oppo Research. and may be prepare to release “the ugly” on Uncle Ben…

Trump Questions Carson’s Record, Medical Ethics: “A Lot Of Things Will Come Out”

WILLIE GEIST, MSNBC HOST: Donald, good morning it’s Willie. We sat around this table and a lot of people have sat around many tables on shows like this and tried to explain the phenomenon in Iowa that’s Ben Carson. As you guys sit in strategy meetings, how do you explain his rise in that state?

TRUMP: Well, I don’t get it, you know, to be honest with you. You look at different things having to do with Ben and there’s a lot of contradiction and a lot of questions. We’ll have to see. One thing I know about a frontrunner, you get analyzed 15 different ways from China. A lot of things will come out. You know, like Ben was pro abortion not so long ago as everybody has told me. I don’t know it personally, but that’s what I’m told — I’ve been told and all of a sudden he’s so hard on abortion under no circumstance, virtually, can there be exceptions. And you say, well, how does that happen where you were pro and not long ago, by the way, and then all of a sudden you can’t even have exceptions.

So that’s an unusual stance and I think people will look at that and they will look at lots of other things including what happened in hospitals and what he was working on and a lot of things I hear, I just don’t actually get it. But I give credit, but I don’t get it….

I’m surprised at Ben Carson, but I go after Ben Carson. Whatever happens, happens. I mean, somebody would say — oh, you go — I don’t know. That’s my whole life. If somebody is an opponent, I want to win. Ben Carson is now doing well and I think Ben Carson has a lot of problems with his record, if you look at his record, including going back in past and, you know, those problems are going to start to come out.

It’s an amazing — It’s almost like — When you’re in first place, it’s like a cleansing action. Some of it is very unfair cleansing. But it really is like a cleansing action. A lot of things will come out now and we’ll see how he holds up to the scrutiny. I’ve been there for I guess 100 and some odd days and we’ll see how it all, you know, how Ben holds up to the scrutiny. But Ben has a lot of things in his past that we’ll see. I mean, we’ll see how he holds up…

Fidel Castro Says What Many Think

The old Cuban Dictator still has an eye for the absurd, and certainly still possesses the faculties to analyze world events. Of course figuring out the Republican Party has become a bunch of circus clowns leading a group of morons – really doesn’t take a lot of critical analysis skills.

Fidel Castro Calls Republican Race ‘Competition Of Idiocy And Ignorance’

Fidel Castro Republican

Fidel Castro lambasted the Republican presidential race as the greatest competition of “idiocy and ignorance” the world has ever seen in a column published Wednesday, and also took shots at the news media and foreign governments for seizing on the death of a Cuban prisoner to demand greater respect for human rights.

Castro’s comments came in a long opinion piece carried by official media two days after Republican presidential hopefuls at a debate in Florida presented mostly hard-line stances on what to do about the Communist-run island, and even speculated as to what would happen to the 85-year-old revolutionary leader’s soul when he dies.

Cuba has become an important issue as the candidates court Florida’s influential Cuban-American community in an effort to win the biggest electoral prize so far in the primary season.

Castro said he always assumed the candidates would try to outdo each other on the issue of Cuba, but that he was nonetheless appalled by the level of debate.

“The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is – and I mean this seriously – the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been,” said the retired Cuban leader, who has dueled with 11 U.S. administrations since his 1959 revolution…

Republican candidate Mitt Romney said during Monday’s debate that Villar died “fighting for democracy” and that his death highlighted the need to remain firm on Cuba. Washington has maintained a near-50-year trade and travel embargo on Cuba.

Another Republican candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said he would authorize increased covert operations to bring down the Cuban government. And at another moment of Monday’s debate, Romney and Gingrich sparred over whether Castro’s soul would go to heaven or hell.

When asked what he would do as president if he found out Castro had died, Romney said he would first “thank Heavens” that the bearded revolutionary had finally “returned to his maker,” to which Gingrich replied “I don’t think Fidel’s going to meet his maker. I think he’s going to go to the other place.”…
