    sundance, we all have to inundate Trump with tweets to have him keep repeating that Rubio has zero grassroots support in Florida for his deceit.
    Rubio will never in a million years win Florida. It’s time for Trump to take down this US Chamber of Corporatist puppet.
    Trump mortally wounded Jeb.

      I don’t like the idea of Kasich to be honest, far better VP options for Trump. I think it would be smart to have another outsider, possibly someone who isn’t even running.

        I don’t want Kasich or Carson or really any of the other also-rans. I think the person Trump asks to be his runningmate will have to be someone very smart, patient, high energy, likes to work, with similar vision for the country and the Trump mission, someone Trump could trust to handle certain departments perhaps? Often the VP is chosen because he can bring votes to the ticket, but I don’t know that anyone currently on tap could do that. And never forget that the Vice President is there to step in if for some reason the President can’t serve, and most likely will run himself in 8 years. I’m curious to see who Trump invites to join him, but you can be sure it will be someone great. I hope that will not happen until he has the nomination safely tucked away. I’d like to see Cruz perhaps as Attorney General .. And yes, conservalicious, I also like Jeff Sessions a whole bunch!

          I roger all your thoughts. Jeff Sessions is my favorite. And I agree–none of the also-rans. We need someone for AG that will fire most of the liberal/prog lawyers there and totally reorganize the place and downsize what’s left. Could Cruz be that much of a bad-ass? I’m not sure but that’s what we need for AG.

          I used to think that Gowdy would make a great Attny General, until last week. I agree that Cruz would be a great choice.


          • SharonKinDC says:

            The one thing to keep in mind… The FBI was paying VERY close attention to that hearing. Gowdy surely knows it. Thus, it’s conceivable his team shaped their questions in a way to aid a further criminal investigation. Time will tell.


      • Stinky-Inky says:

        No to Kasich. He’ll say anything he thinks you want to hear to get your vote.


    • jackphatz says:

      Kaisich can not add anything positive to this. In fact he would be a nasty, mean negative blemish to the campaign. Think of how McCain ruined it for Palin.

    I found this post on another site. Can anyone confirm this? If so this is YUGE!!!

    “Thank you DONALD………Ohio must be thrilled!! Under pressure, Ford is moving back their Mexican plant (worth 2 billion) back to the states… Youngstown, Ohio to be exact. There will be 1,000 new jobs for factory workers there.
    Ford must have done the math and figured that would cost them a great deal.
    Ford must believe that Trump will be the next president.”

    As we’ve been discussing, using Carson to bolster Rubio.

    Media Shows Hand & Confirms D.C. Whispers Report on Trump vs Carson “War”… –

    “Keep an eye on the Trump vs Carson meme coming from the Mainstream Media this week and know it for what it really is – an extension of the GOP elite’s having chosen Marco Rubio to be the party’s 2016 candidate for President. Given the greatly improved political abilities of Senator Rubio, that gesture might very well prove to be money well spent .”

    I think the only reason Trump is in 2nd to Carson in Iowa is that Carson (and his PACs) are tageting CAUCUS goers as opposed to the regular voters of general elections.
    Caucus goers are traditionally more religious in Iowa.
    Ironic that Ben is a 7th Day Adventist (which sometimes is seen as somewhat marginal as a Christian religion) whereas Trump is a mainstream Protestant.
    I also wonder if these caucus goers have any idea how highly Ben regards both Farrakhan and Sharpton.

    A couple of businesses by me have Trump yard signs out front of their buildings. Very cool!

    I have yet to see a Rubio sign.

    One of the main problems for the Republicans is their hopelessly outdated traditional marketing models. All of these millions being spent on a declining television audience as people give up cable in droves. The GOP also spend it on unbelievably expensive direct mail – which doesn’t do much but support the post office. I’ve been in advertising/marketing communications for more than 40 years so I actually wrote to them after the 2008 election chastising them for their stupidity. Now, I’m glad they have remained so inept.

    I had watched the marketing masters of Obama’s campaign. Now, Trump has surpassed that mastery as he embraces the new media bypassing all the traditional methods by taking his message straight to the people. Although times were different, Reagan did just that – took his message straight to the people and that’s why he was able to overcome the onslaught against him.

    Trump will do the same thing to Hillary Clinton when the time is right for it.

      I have a theory that Trump planned this run for a long, long time. Plenty of previous interviews bear out that he had thought of it decades ago.

      I asked myself this question: “Why would a fabulously successful real estate mogul take up a television show?” –It perplexed me at the time. Why would Trump splinter his time in that way–to take on a TV show where he earns PEANUTS by comparison to his strong suit–real estate? WHY??

      Now, I contend he entered the television world for two specific purposes:

      First, to gain the ultimate “name recognition” in the popular culture–virtually everyone has heard of Donald Trump. His show was a smash hit. People LOVE Donald Trump (despite what some polls say about his ‘negatives’).

      Second, Trump learned the media industry from the inside out–and dominated it in short order.

      So, Trump was PAID millions of dollars to earn the ultimate name recognition, and knows exactly how to manipulate media to his advantage.

      THAT, I would call a savvy marketing campaign.

        I believe that you are probably 100% correct. I’ve seen old interviews of Trump as far back as the late 1980’s with speculation even then he may run for President. Even at that time, he was estimated he was worth $3 Billion. The only real difference I see of him for those days is he was much more soft spoken and displayed greater humility – a trait I suspect remains in one on one dealings. The tough guy persona has probably evolved from tough business dealings as well as the show.

        Man is one smart dude! Which is why we need him as President.

        I thought the same, Kate. YUGE increase in brand. Just the name and cachet of the biz background. An added plus for change to a political run.

        This is also blindsiding the pollsters. Loads of people will pull the lever for him, including those who don’t regularly vote, watch ‘news’, or respond to polls. It’s like he’s got at least 10 hidden points in any poll, because these voters aren’t in any database. (Or they may be in a D database, lol)


    • SharonKinDC says:

      One of the recent IA polls asked a LOT about Twitter and FB use. Unfortunately for Trump, the bulk of the respondents NEVER use it. The upside, is that tells you a bit about the demo of those polled.

    Add this to the mix (excerpt from article, link attached):

    “By an overwhelming 77 percent to 22 percent margin, Republican registered voters and leaners say they prefer an outsider candidate who will change how things are done, rather than someone with experience in Washington who can get things done. They prefer someone with private sector leadership experience over experience holding elected office, 76 percent to 22 percent.”

    Looking like “landslide” territory to me.

    (The article then goes on to quote a republican “strategist”–a “conventional wisdom” loser, if you ask me, who pans Trump’s chances and marginalizes him as some sort of “useful tool”. Of course, the article doesn’t point out that Trump is busily cleaning this “strategist’s” clock–somehow that didn’t factor in.)

  20. Trump foolishly endorses Carson’s plan to end medicare which Carson just renounced!



  21. judyw says:

    This is the best explanation I’ve seen of the Carson run. His speech at the National Prayer Breakfast was my first awareness of him and I thought he was extremely out of the political correctness loop so I liked that. And it seems that John Philip Sousa IV saw $$$$$.

    Just six months later, Sousa founded the National Draft Ben Carson for President Campaign Committee (NDBCPCC) and the purpose of the PAC was to demonstrate the fundraising capacity a run for president could have.

    When Sousa was interviewed in December 2014 about the PAC, he seemed curiously lacking in passion for his candidate. He mentioned that he was very much taken with Dr. Carson’s speech at the Prayer Breakfast, and with his rags-to-riches tale, but also conceded, “Did we thoroughly vet the guy? No.” Sousa insisted that Carson would certainly win at least 17 percent of the black vote, but had only one reason to support that claim: “He’s black.” Sousa was vague as to exactly why Dr. Carson was the best candidate, and vaguer still about what would happen to the PAC if the campaign went nowhere. He admitted that the PAC was focused almost entirely on raising money.

    “Washington Watcher” points out Dr. Carson’s far-from-conservative opinions–especially on immigration–but there is more to the story. What is only whispered within the Beltway is that the Carson candidacy is not so much a serious effort to make him president as a fundraising scheme–and a very effective one. A polished team is making millions flogging a hopeless black candidate to guilt-ridden Republicans. It’s a tactic they have perfected with several black long shots.

    The man who originally filed the paperwork to set up NDBCPCC and is now its political director, Vernon Robinson, made around a quarter of a million dollars in 2014. It is not obvious why Mr. Robinson deserves that kind of compensation. He was a city councilman in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for eight years, and unsuccessfully ran for congress as a conservative (calling himself the “black Jesse Helms”) three times between 2004 and 2012. In other words, a black man who only held local office a decade ago and lost three congressional races is the political director of a PAC trying to elect a black man who has never held political office.

    I’m inclined to suspect that Mr. Robinson got his job, not because he is good at winning elections (obviously, he isn’t), but because he is very good at raising money. A lot of all this money flows through something called Eberle Associates, a direct mail house that did fundraising for Mr. Robinson. Mother Jones reports about $2,000,000 of NDBCPCC’s swag also went straight to Eberle. On top of that, the Washington Post and Buzzfeed have noticed that other companies that work for NDBCPCC share an address with Eberle Associates, and are owned by the same umbrella company, Eberle Communications Group. Campaign Funding Direct, for example, picked up $1.6 million and Omega List collected $1.5 million. They all live together at 1420 Spring Hill Road, Suite 490, McLean, Virginia. Like Vernon Robinson, the Eberle companies are paid to shake down donors.

    This place is an education.

    In a just world, Sundance, this site would be preserved and in a century, after humanity finally either picked up the pieces (heh, Average White Band) they could read it all and understand what happened.

    You need a printing press. All-digital is less likely to be figured out by future archaeology.
