        I agree, great commercial. I’d still like to see him use Defending The USA’s self made ads. I like them, and I think it feeds into the populist portion of the campaign. Not a complaint, just a request, if you are reading this Mr. Trump. 😉

    What a STUPID question? “Are you confident that those people who show up at your rallies will [vote in the primaries]?” Holy moley! It takes FAR more effort to attend a Trump rally than it does to go vote in a primary. So of COURSE they will. Aside from the hecklers, those tens of thousands at each rally and those HUNDREDS of thousands if not MILLIONS collectively will go out.

    There will be such a massive turn-out that if anyone attempts fraud, there will be mobs of protesters the numbers will be THAT big.

      I totally agree. The media has bought into their own spiel that Trump followers are stupid people who only go see him because he a “rock start.” Well, he is a rock star and much, much more–he’s the man who can and will save this country from the fools in both parties who have been driving our country into a ditch for years and years. We are faithful followers and will certainly be there to vote when the time comes. These idiots in the media will learn soon enough.

      The left can believe whatever they want; they can profess to be as skeptical as they want; but they can’t change the simple fact that we would all belly-crawl over broken glass to vote for Donald J. Trump.

        A caucus may take a bit more time in some cases although in many places in the country voters have to stand in long lines for hours to be able to vote. The recent polls I’ve seen here at TCH suggest the trend in Iowa is toward Trump and away from Cruz. I think that with all the flack Pastor Ted has taken in the past few days over his eligibility issue, the NY values thing and his Goldman Sachs loans he has probably hit his high and is headed down.

Look it up, it’s what dictators tell their people–they are in the “land of milk and honey.” (a Stalin poster from the 1940’s)

          Trump better start hitting the particulars of college kids with no jobs, the service and retail sector laying off thousands, i know he has said this but we need him to rally the 20 somethings living at home because wages are low and rents are high, and the graduates stuck working 3 jobs, the young married couples whose taxes are going to baby mamas and sperm donors while thy can’t afford the basics.

I told the youngster that many people his age, just graduated from college, are very much interested in voting for Trump because he is the only one from either party who can provide some hope for their future. He agreed, and told me that he and many of his friends are having a very tough time of it, and afterwards muttered under his breath that Trump is on the minds of many of his friends for the promise of a future. I think that once Trump gets past the GOPe, that he will run the table and win nearly every state, including my state of California.

            codasouthtexas –

            I am confused. Why are a lot of Conservatives even backing Cruz? Isn’t he part of the GOP establishment problem?

            I didn’t hear Cruz standing up in the Senate, pounding his fist on the table & demanding that they stop Obama.

            If Cruz was so wonderful he would have already done something profound to rally the rest of the crooks & politicos in Washington to stop the Iran deal, the Bergdahl swap, etc.

            Why didn’t he stand up, like Jim Bridenstine did in the House and declare that Obama & Biden weren’t fit to lead America?

            What has Cruz done to stop Obama for the past 7 years? He’s part of the GOPe problem, the embedded District of Corruption problem, not the solution!

    Window into Donald’s mindset: he said Bernie is in second place. That signals that Trump is already past the “point of sale” as the GOP nominee, in his own mind, and is already running a general election campaign.

    Another man I have admired greatly is Dallas Cowboys coach, Tom Landry. A family friend was able to ask Tom why he looked so stoic on the sidelines after a big successful play. Landry answered that he the big play was simply the unfolding of his plan, and that he was already several plays ahead in his mind. Pure awesomeness.

      My lovely wife is a New Yorker. Cruz’s silly comments did not resonate well with her, I can tell you.

      My impression is that Cruz’s birth woes be damned–he really hurt himself with those ill-considered New York comments. He has willfully tossed away a huge swatch of possible supporters in a race he was already trailing in–and tossed them directly into the lap of the ONE man who was legitimately beating him anyway, the unabashed Donald J. Trump, quite possibly the world’s most famous and instantly-recognizable…

          Some of the most conservative people I know have come out of NY and moved South. One of them happens to be an ex brother-in-law. He also grew up with the Trump family and knew them very, very well. He’s NY “gruff” but as conservative as they come. He was friends with Donald’s older brother Fred, Jr., who died quite young from alcoholism and knew the entire family quite well.

          Several months ago, I asked him what he thought of Donald Trump as President. He said he’d make a phenomenal President and we must understand that a lot of that was because he came from an amazing family. He was around during those years that Donald’s father built modest homes for returning veterans and carted Donald along as he collected rent payments and made his children do real work to actually develop a strong work ethic.

      I think Cruz was just playing up on the New York – Boston sport’s rivalries to get some traction with NE voters and it got away from him.

      Cruz said this after Howie Carr asked him about Trump playing ‘Born in the USA’ before his rallies. Cruz’s ‘New York’ answer didn’t make sense to me unless you come from that area and know the dynamic involved. Howie is broadcast all over Northern New England, so it would make sense to try to play on that group of listeners. Howie is also an eccentric, wise ass kind of guy ( I mean that in a good way) who takes on even serious subjects with a sense of humor. It probably was a ‘Damn Yankees’ comment that would have fit well on Howie’s show if it was said obviously tongue in cheek as New Englanders would do it.

      Cruz didn’t start qualifying his remarks until the next day on Kelly Megyn’s show, saying ‘New York’ didn’t share values with Iowa or NH. Another ‘Pickett’s Charge’ by Cruz after he realized he screwed the pooch with his comments the day before.

      Yeah, it’s kind of a strange take, but if you know the way Howie and his listeners interact, it would have been seen as attempt at humor if Cruz could have pulled it off correctly, but he didn’t. Cruz has a smugness about him that makes attempts at irreverent humor seem out of place.

        Thing is ‘New York Values’ was one of the Cruz backed push poll questions in IA a week a go. So, regardless of Howie, Boston, and ball teams, Cruz was rarin’ to go with one of the ‘poll tested’ digs, imo.

        Proving that those poll tested hits can be misses, and misses magnified by a poor delivery.

        The whole thing was a elaborate, planned, and STUPID endeavor.

    Regarding the Morning Joe interview when Joe says he can’t figure out why there’s such yuge turnouts at Trump rallies and Trump responds that it’s a love-fest, Trump’s right and the core reason behind it boils down to this: TRUMP CAN’T BE BOUGHT.
    So, Joe, for the first time in my lifetime, we have wonderful confluence: a bold independent thinking patriotic candidate who is NOT running for the establishment class AND HE’S NOT BEHOLDEN TO ANYONE.

      People are tired and angry with the way the country is being raped and murdered by its politicians. They finally see someone who will tell it like it is, without fear, so they come. They see that something big is happening – the movement – and they want to be a part of it. They could stay home and watch it on Youtube, but they want to be able to say, “I was a part of it. I was there.” Finally, they see and feel hope for the future, a light in the darkness. These people will caucus, and they will come out to vote. Don’t be surprised to see record turnout announced on the night of the Iowa Caucus. And I’m pretty confident that Trump will win it and go on to run the table. This is the people’s revolution.

      I get the impression that Trump is an imposing presence, in a good way: that he has charisma and is both charming and disarming. Add to that the natural awe people feel when in the presence of someone rich and successful, as well as the fact that he pulls no punches and will actually address things they say (good or bad) — as well as the fact that he is so different from politicians, whom news people interview all the time — and I suspect people feel slightly cautious and that they are in unchartted territory around him.

        Good point, T-T–

        I have been…”lucky” isn’t quite the right word, but let’s say I used to be “in a position” to be in quite close proximity to many ‘movers & shakers’: Carter; Reagan; Bush-1; Clinton; their respective Vice Presidents; several of their secretaries of state, defense, etc., and numerous members of congress. I’ve met several presidential candidates over the years and have attended debates ‘live and in person’. I’ve seen many world leaders at close range as well (the Queen & Prime Minister of England; etc), and was introduced to a few of them (the French President; two now-deceased Kings of Saudi Arabia & several other Saudi royals). It’s been an interesting road; not bad for a ‘nobody’.

        Of all those ‘luminaries’ I was exposed to, only two of them absolutely changed the atmosphere of the room when they walked into it: Ronald Reagan, and Sarah Palin. The others? “Meh. No big deal.” Only Reagan & Palin had the undefinable “it” factor.

        I haven’t ever been close to Mr. Trump, but I suspect he has it, too.

          Sounds like you’ve led a fascinating life!
          Reagan was in office when I graduated from high school, and I’ve voted Republican ever since, but when Sarah Palin gave her initial VP candidate “acceptance” speech with McCain, I was moved to tears – never happened before. I was so enthused by her, and her RNC speech was awesome! Then MSM, SNL, Dems, et al visously attacked her, and her family like nothing I’ve ever seen before, and then gave a complete pass to Obama and his past / record/ and stupid statements, I have to say it damn near destroyed my faith and hope for our country’s future. It really affected me. And now Trump comes around, and thanks to Sundance / CTH, I see how utterly corrupt even FNC is, as well as Rush, Levin… yet I realize all is not lost because even after all this, I still have faith we can turn this bus around and there are a lot of patriots that feel the same! I think Trump can and will go all the way and I hope beyond all hope Trump can lead us to heal our country, and reform our government. I know he can’t do it all himself, but just changing the direction will be a huge improvement that hopefully others will follow and maybe then we will start holding all our representatives accountable! Please Donald, don’t let us down! I listen and watch him and FEEL he is sincere in his love of our country and will put America first. I watch and listen to Trump and he cracks me up at times like no one’s business. It is like a team sport with Donald, and I love being on his team, because it feels so good to win, and win we will! Tears of joy and pride, I love that he can bring those feelings back!

        Nope: Cruz’ remarks played well in “flyover country,” specifically with the Evangelicals in Iowa. Here’s the entire article, including both video & transcript:

        Krauthammer: Birth Issue Was A Minor Win For Cruz, But Trump’s Response To “New York Values” Attack Was “Electric”

        Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer declares Donald Trump the winner of Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate hosted by the FOX Business Network. Krauthammer says while the Trump-Cruz fight on the latter’s natural birth status was a “minor win” for the Texas Senator but Trump’s response to Cruz’s “New York values” attack was “the moment of the debate.”

        CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think a telling moment was the final split screen. You saw Cruz on the right, utterly speechless and beaten. That was a pretty rare event. I’m surprised the focus group was looking at the exchange between the two of them on the birth issue. That was a win for Cruz, but I thought it was a minor one. This one, I thought was electric.

        Two things that are surprising about that exchange. First of all, focus, who is the best debater of the group had to know this was coming. He had to know it was coming because Donald Trump had said the same answer about September 11th in one of the television shows. So he knew it was coming and had no response. Look. focus had dropped this thing about New York in a semi tongue in cheek way as a wink, wink to people in Iowa…

        It might have tested well in Iowa but not in a national debate. It’s not just that Cruz walked into a trap knowing what is coming but that Trump acted in a way that is quite uncharacteristic. If you notice how he drops the tone of his voice, it was serious and he slowed down. And he delivered that in a way that was sober and serious, unlike the way he generally speaks which is quickly, and half sentences, jumping around and with a lot of energy and I think he played that. That was the September 11th card. He dealt it out of the deck in a way that was surprising for Trump.

        I thought that was the moment of the debate. If you score the debate on who won this this round on points, it would be different. But I think that was a moment where Trump clearly had won. Cruz, the main challenger, had lost.

And what made it even worse was Ted Cruz went on and on and ON about it at the debate, even turned it into grandstanding til it became a SERMON much more offensive than the original comments Maria Bartiromo was asking about. And Cruz was reveling in it, joyously jumping in the mud — till he realized the mud was quicksand, aka TRUMP SAND and he started to sink!

        Trump said in the MSNBC video above that a poll shows that he has the support of New York State — which he said is almost 50% of the State of New York already!!

        Prayer Warriors let’s focus our prayers for the people of the great State of New York!

      AMAZING article. I’ve included excerpts, here:

      Today, it’s a different world. YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook let one human broadcast to billions, without permission, without censors, without delay. Social media makes mass organization and resistance possible.
      The Arab Spring is just one consequence
      The American Spring of 2016 is another.

      Social and alternative media dominates and disintermediates mass media. Every column brings a hundred rebuttals. The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are stood like commoners next to bloggers, begging for tweets, likes, and votes. We are all journalists and editors now.

      Meanwhile, the Internet kills the political ad. Everyone is online – skipping, blocking, or just mis-clicking.
      Bernie spends a bit on ads. Trump doesn’t bother.
      It’s not just publishing – the Internet lets anyone donate little bits online. Bernie taps the crowd – over a million dollars a day from small donors! Again, Trump doesn’t bother. He just self-finances.
      The mass media barrier is down. The money barrier is down.
      A mob is pushing Bernie. Trump is pulling one behind him.

      YouTube killed TV and Twitter ate the news. Donald’s tweeting from his jet and Bernie’s kickstarter went viral. Software is eating politics and the elites have lost control.

      Sanders’ voters think the rich stole their money. Trump’s voters think the illegals stole their jobs.

      There is no more establishment. Like all things Internet, social media and crowd financing are unstoppable. Every large future election will have outsiders out-organizing, out-raising, and out-raging the establishment.

      America is going from a republic of elites to a direct democracy. Look to your left, and look to your right. Wake up – the people are here.

The only similarity is they are polar opposites playing outside the reach of the elites.

          The elites are merely people that went to the right schools, grew up in the right neighborhoods, and came from the right money and the right families. [So you have to come from money to get money. Which leads to a later comment, which defines this opinion of his.] Sanders’ voters think the rich stole their money. Trump’s voters think the illegals stole their jobs. [He wasn’t complaining about illegals…]

          The pie expands, slowly and un-evenly, and all is well. [To each their needs, eh comrade!]

          Is everyone actually, really, equally qualified to vote, the elites wonder? [I can answer. No they are not. Maybe I am mean, but I don’t think you should get to vote if you don’t pay any taxes. If you want to help design the machine, then you have to help build it.]

          Mostly the elites agree to keep power with elite institutions, controlling the masses who cannot be trusted. [Agreed]
          – Yes to wars[Mostly agree. Don’t go looking for a fight, but don’t take a punch, with out hitting back 10 times as hard. Eventually people stop picking fights with you. No political correctness. Hit hard and get out.]
          – yes to mass surveillance [Agreed]
          – yes to bailouts [Agreed]
          – yes to war on drugs [Partially agree. I am not for an open free for all. I have personally seen to many people screwed up or dead on heroine. Trump has been addressing this as well. I’ve also seen roving herds of pot heads while touring the Rockies. I am for much less criminalization of users.]
          – yes to war on terror [Isis and jihad in general must be fought. They will only get worse. But if we are going to do it, per the above, do it hard and do it quick.]
          – yes to endless copyrights [Agreed for the most part]
          – yes to monopolies and oligopolies[Agreed, but this is primarily a globalist issue. True monopolies within the US are fairly rare. I don’t consider fairly dominating the market to be a monopoly. But again, globally it is an issue.]
          – no to term limits [Agreed]
          – no to wealth taxes [Ok, this is my big WTF. This is wealth confiscation.]

          The elites lock the crown behind two massive gates – it costs a billion dollars to run for president. And incalculable, favorable mass media exposure. [The problem isn’t the cost. I am fine with only the most talented being able to attempt to run, like Trump. The problem is our corrupt campaign finance system and these insane Super PAC’s. They allow losers, like Jebra the puppet, to be propped up by people you don’t know and are not on the debate stage. We also do not pursue and prosecute people’s abuse of their power to get rich. Like Michelle Obama going from $1 million to $12 million since hubby has been in office.]

          Barack Obama interrupts an in-process coronation. Using hope, change, and emerging alternative online media, he organizes and brings new voters to the polls. But back then, it still takes television, money, newspapers, and the party apparatus. He can’t and doesn’t do it alone, and eventually joins the elite. [He actually thought Obama was an outsider]

          A mob is pushing Bernie. Trump is pulling one behind him. [Everyone loves Bernie, but Trump is rich enough to force himself on us.]

          Throughout history, elites and plutocrats have feared direct democracy. [Our founder feared a direct democracy.]

          One-person, one-vote logically leads towards mob rule. Socialism. Tribalism. The masses are always “crazier” than the elites. [It does, and it is not crazy. Our founders were correct in setting up a republic. We choose the individuals who we feel BOTH represent our ideals and can achieve them. Sometimes it is the unpopular decision that is the correct one.]

          America is going from a republic of elites to a direct democracy. [We are a republic and Trump is elite. Look up the definition. He wants mob rule via direct democracy.]

          So that is my long winded opinion on why that guy is a flaming socialist. But he does have some valid opinions on the effects of internet communication on the election process. But we still must break the machine. It won’t take the globalists long to figure or game that as well. They can never be underestimated. And what the author TRULY missed was, small government. The smaller it is, the harder it is to game and corrupt.

    • Joe was also very friendly to Trump when he saw Carson gaining too. Joe has said things that lead me to believe he really really REALLY doesn’t like Ted Cruz, or nicer put: really disapproves of Cruz being the nominee. And now after seeing the immense crowds in his own hometown really struck a chord with him. He said it’s one thing to see on TV or photos, quite another when it’s the town you grew up in.

        Yes, I agree. But Joe is still, and will always be, an establishment shill. He’s not really a supporter of either Cruz or Trump.

        But, I think deep down he’d have a much harder time accepting Trump. It will soon be tough on Joe as he is forced to eat all of the condescending comments he’s made about “Donald”.

    Sitting here on the bank of the Sulfer River bank in Texas useing high power binoculars to try to find some old cows who strayed down in the river bottom.

    My past of recon in Vietnam and the need of insert security.

    We could never allow any of the locals to know any thing of our movements.

    Then this riverine boats, the guys on them and the fact they were based whet most if not all the locals are Muslims .

    One slip up of the route/time of the transit could have been leaked to the Iraninan Govt. then the boats were ambushed by over powering force.

    With Obama not allowing the Navy to rescue them.

    About MSNBC and Krauthammer and people who did not like Trump coming around . . .

    This is Donald’s gift, his talent. He has a way of beating you and befriending you.
    His father’s toughness and his mother’s warmth.

    Look at the kids, I always say. Strict upbringing, but loving attachment.

    He will rebuild America and bring people together. He can close the chasm thought it sounds like the opposite to Liberals. He will have balm for everyone because he has the solutions to their problems.

    They will have to work alongside him. No free rides. But the nation will be moving ahead, up off its asses and up off its knees.

    Get ready for a great resurrection. Like Lazarus, we will be back from the dead.

        This lady has an appointment with her lawyer. When she leaves, he tells her his fee is $100. She had just been to the bank and had a wad of $100 bills so she peeled one off and gave it to him. After she left, the lawyer discovered she had mistakenly given him two $100 bills so he was faced with a moral dilemma: Whether to tell his partner about the extra money.

      Sounds like Scott is changing his mind. He’s always been a lefty, not hard left, but center left. And he has been no fan of Trump. His writings are two things. Using Trump’s popularity for clicks to his blog, and reenforcing his belief that he’s as smart as Trump.

      I do think he may be another disenfranchised democrat that votes Trump. Notice he only disqualified Clinton because she dismissed men as inferior, which seemed to offend him (rightfully). Not on policy or preference. I think if there was a strong center left democrat running, that is absolutely where he’d be.

      But hey, we’ll take it! Maybe a few democrats will learn that conservatism is the way. 🙂

        I think you are wrong in the overal impression of Scott Adams. I have been reading his Trump series since June. He has predicted with 100% accuracy every step of this election. It has been amazing reading his blog. It is like having advance notice to the events months before it happens.

        He predicted Carly’s downfall as soon as Carly talked about dead babies and “that face” comment from Trump. He announced Carson politically dead when Trump talked about his belt buckle. He predicted Hillary’s down trend almost two months ago. Most importantly:

        He has predicted Trump landslide victory in general by 65% ever since June of last year when no one was taking Trump seriously.

  29. Sundance has the same high energy as Trump! This thread, the videos, the articles, always posting pertinent information, other threads, all of the threads really — including on other news like the Oregon Standoff, are very much appreciated. Many of us don’t have TV’s and you always pick out the right videos and recaps, pertinent news, and even live streams that save us so much time of google searching. You are definitely someone Trump would HIRE when he gets in office.

    I want to ask you what they always ask Trump: DO YOU EVER SLEEP??????

    My checks come quarterly and when it comes the end of this month I will be donating to this fine website. Just wanted to say THANK YOU and I am quite sure I speak for many others who’ve pulled up a branch of REFUGE here at the CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE.

    And I love your icon of the WOLVERINE for creative conservative Treehouse really represents the fight of the media, calling them out and keeping them honest even within the conservative movement itself; AND the “Our Father” displayed faithfully each night to remind us what this is all about, our country, our families, our prayers and our God!
