      Syrian Refugee Men Like Hillary Clinton

      Top Aide to Hillary Says Let the Refugees Come

      Clinton aide Huma Abedin talks about supporting Syrian refugees. In Greece Syrian refugee men are captured on undercover video.

      The Syrians are hoping to get to Germany and US – possibly using fake passports.

      The Syrian refugees love Clinton and Clinton loves the refugees.

        Huma Abedin will dope Hillary up so she can nap all day while the Muslim Sister and Brotherhoods run the White House. This is the plan post-Barack Obama.

    Being that islam is a political system, it would NOT be unconstitutional to make it illegal in the US. Any REAL Constitutional lawyer knows this but are too beta to file the case.

    The GOPe has started a PAC called Trump Card LLC, to wage a guerilla campaign against Donald Trump. It was organized by Liz Mair, former online communications director of the Republican National Committee.
    How long ago did she leave her RNC/GOPe paid position?
    “The goal, according to the memo, isn’t to covert Mr. Trump’s supporters into backing other candidates, but to dissuade them from voting altogether, especially in New Hampshire’s influential first-in-the-nation primary.”

    Well, if that isn’t the GOPe breaking the PLEDGE they forced Trump to sign, I don’t know what is.
    No wonder there are rumors Trump is considering an Independent run.
    Staying tuned.

      I know its tempting to wonder if Trump can still get in as an independent if the party screws him. I myself am resisting those thoughts, lets let Trump figure it out and support him no matter what. For now, 100% of our efforts need to go towards crushing the GOPe with the brute force.

      • Trump’s just using his acumen and clout to bring this out in the open. Those “Pledges” are a 2-way agreement. Besides… he WILL get the GOP nomination, and he knows it. THIS is about what happens after the primaries and before the general.

    Virginia Ballot update:

    3 candidates have the needed signatures Trump, jeb!, Kasich
    Cruz is on the cusp of getting it and is close
    Carson team is open to a challenge. Part of the process is that the signature collector person must witness the signature. Signatures bus t be submitted by county/district. Carson used volunteers who did not understand the law and they collected signatures UNATTENDED at various gatherings, e.g. Gun Shows. Signatures are incorrectly listed for the jurisdictions, etc. – Big problems there
    Fiorina – no news but sent an email saying “GOP” is against her ’cause her team doesn’t want to follow VA law regarding getting on the ballot, strange position for a person wanting to be the Presider over the laws of the land – not smart, but iSnarley
    No news on the others but if the “hi profile” peeps are struggling, the also-rans are unlikely to get on the ballot
    10 December is the cut-off so there is still time, but with Thanksgiving here, its going to be tough to organize people and get the job done

      Sorry folks – I numbered these 1-6 but the comment tool stripped that out


      • TheTorch says:

        Thanks for the update NVA, interesting info. The Carson stuff, really does not surprise me, I think the whole Carson campaign is clearly a mess, I would not be surprised, if they could not make Virginia, same for Carly, and most of the other 5% or lower.

    This stats nerd some of you may have heard of (Nate Silver) has compared Donald Trump support to people who think the moon landing is a hoax!

    Yeah, lets see daily moon landing conventions that draw in thousands of people around the country.

    These pundits are really getting desperate.


    • Nanny G says:

      Actually, Donald Trump is a lot more like JFK who had about the same specificity about his vow that we should land a man on the moon as Trump has on how he would get 12 million (OK there’s more like 20 million because a good 11 million are in CA) illegal aliens to leave our country.


    • Cameraman says:

      Nate has fallen into the common delusion of assuming 2015/16 is going to be just like 2011/12. The interest in the 2015/16 GOP primary race is unprecedented. Viewership of the debates is up 400%. Guess who that is down to Nate? And regardless of how you juggle your figures Nate, every other Republican candidate is doing WORSE than Trump you TWIT!

      And if you want to compare 2012 Nate, well here’s the chart and for comparison we’re looking for someone who maintained strong support throughout the campaign (see if that turned out to be the eventual winner)

      Oh, and of your Iowa 80% undecided figure Nate, almost all of them won’t bother voting at all – just like they never do.

      “In 2008, heralded as a banner year for turnout only 5.4 percent of eligible Iowans turned up at a GOP caucus site.”

      2012 was marginally higher.

      “This year’s caucus also set a record for turnout, with 122,255 total votes cast. The previous record for the GOP caucus was 119,000 votes, set in 2008.”

      2016 Turnout will be higher and 100% of that increase will deliver a crushing victory for Trump.

      One last thing Nate.


  6. Great Kabuki says:

    Given that the conservative (not MSM) media’s mask has slipped in light of Trumpamania, how do you think the campaign will actually be covered when Trump wins the nomination?

    Will they change their tune?

    Will they have a media blackout?

    Will they continue their snark and belittlement?

    What do you think?

    About the ‘racist’ re-twit:

    According to the FBI… I’m not saying it , the FBI under the Obama administration is saying it :
    Black male are 3 time more likely to commit assault then white male.
    (and if you dig deeper, and isolate the 18-26 age group, the black male violence is off the charts)

    Now, if the press want to go after someone for being racist they should go after Obama for letting the FBI publish those racist statistics.

    The FBI data is actually alarming, its amazing nobody want to talk about it.

    Seem like Trump, once again kicked the hornet nest in the court of the media and they have no clue what hit them… Trump is trying to force the media to talk about issues they refuse to talk about, by making himself an easy target. “Trump is racist!! …. look at the data!” …. “oh no!, dont look at the data, the data is racist!”

    Looking forward to the rally in Ohio tonight !

    Just thought I would share this with other Treepers–it is too good not to. On Rush today a caller was concerned. He said I like what Trump says because he says what a lot of us are thinking. But he is brash, cocky and says he is going to do all sorts of things and he doesn’t care what people think. ” So how do we know we would not be trading one tyrannical president (Obama) for another (Trump)?”

    Rush’s answer was perfect: He said, “I know Donald Trump, I have met and talked to him a number of times over the years. He is a ‘get things done’ kind of guy. But he is NOT A DICTATOR.” Given that millions of listeners firmly believe everything Rush says—-that will only help ore man !

      We should check out all the videos post-911 because we’d probably find Barack Obama there amongst the moderate muslims cheering on the devastation. BO is quite possibly if not more by now, the poster-boy for moderate muslims, the passive-aggressive chicken ones, who morph gradually to jihad tendencies as the terrorists gain on destruction. They are the defacto cheering squads and enablers of terrorism.

      I remember the joke Obama made once at a speech, which reveals his delight, that it was only his daughters taking Air Force One out for a joyride the day New York cowered under a false plane alarm when he was finally elected to office. I repeat the term again………JOYRIDE.

      This is a black Uncle Hussein. Obama is Mohammed’s servant. In the middle east, there are still hoards of black slaves mistreated and subservient to muslims. Does Obama care? No. Because he’s an Uncle Hussein. Black Americans please wake up and start telling the country Barack Obama is not black.

    Coming up on CNN:

    Another candidate joins Trump in his claim that Muslims celebrated in the streets of Jersey after the “Nine Eleven Attacks”.

    Hmmmm I wonder who developed some COURAGE overnight??


    • Honest Abbey says:

      Doh! Of all the candidates running, did it have to be the one with the least amount of credibility? (Aside from Hillary, of course)

      Donald Trump is better off weathering this storm solo, rather than having Ben Carson backing him up.

  25. Melania for 1st Lady says:

    In the second paragraph of this article, it says (about Alabama):

    “Sen. Rubio has his eyes on the state too, recently becoming one of only two candidates (Carson is the other) to submit a full slate of 76 delegates for the primary.”

    Can anyone explain exactly what this means? I thought delegates were awarded to a candidate based on the votes of the people – what is this “submit a full slate of delegates” about? Does Donald need to “submit” (not really sure what this means) 76 delegates in Alabama? What about other states?
